Mismanagement of the persistent state of a system---all the executable files, configuration settings and other data that govern how a system functions---causes reliability problems, security vulnerabilities, and drives up operation costs. Recent research traces persistent state interactions---how state is read, modified, etc.---to help troubleshooting,(More)
Given the abundance of online information available to mobile users, particularly tourists and weekend travelers, recommender systems that effectively filter this information and suggest interesting participatory opportunities will become increasingly important. Previous work has explored recommending interesting locations; however, users would also benefit(More)
Existing Management Systems do not detect the most time-consuming and technically difficult anomalies administrators encounter.O ppenheimer [25] found that 33% of outages were caused by human error and that 76% of the time taken to resolve an outage was taken by humans determining what change was needed. Defining anomaly detection rules is challenging and(More)
We apply collaborative recommendation algorithms to photography in order to produce personalized suggestions for locations in the geocoordinate space where mobile users can take photos. We base our work on a collection of 3 million geotagged, publicly-available Flickr.com digital photos on which we applied a series of steps: first, unique locations are(More)
Granular cell tumors (GCT) are found in virtually any body site, including the tongue, skin, subcutaneous tissue, breast, rectum and vulva. However, they are rarely seen in the abdominal wall. We report here on a rare case of GCT in the rectus muscle of the abdominal wall. A 44-year-old woman presented with a non-tender, hard mass in the right lower(More)
Intensive glucose control increases the all-cause mortality in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM); however, the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. We hypothesized that strict diet control to achieve euglycemia in diabetes damages major organs, increasing the mortality risk. To evaluate effects on major organs when euglycemia is obtained by diet control, we(More)
BACKGROUND Although numerous animal models for low back pain associated with intervertebral disk (IVD) degeneration have been proposed, insufficient data have been provided to make any conclusions regarding pain. Our aim in this study was to determine the reliability of complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA) injection into the rat spine as an animal model(More)
Sporadic sclerotic fibroma (SF) and solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) arising in the oral cavity are very rare. In this report, we describe two cases of oral pathology, one involving SF and the other involving SFT. Both cases presented with well- circumscribed, firm nodules with similar gross findings. However, the histologic findings of the SF and SFT showed(More)
Interstitial fibrosis and tubular atrophy (IF/TA) is a common cause of kidney allograft loss. Several noninvasive techniques developed to assess tissue fibrosis are widely used to examine the liver. However, relatively few studies have investigated the use of elastographic methods to assess transplanted kidneys. The aim of this study was to explore the(More)
