In 2005, Stephen Abram, vice president of Innovation at SirsiDynix, challenged library and information science (LIS) professionals to start becoming " librarian 2.0. " In the last few years, discussion and debate about the " core competencies " needed by librarian 2.0 have appeared in the " biblioblogosphere " (blogs written by LIS professionals). However,(More)
Impulse buying generates over $4 billion in annual sales volume in the United States. With the growth of e-commerce and television shopping channels, consumers have easy access to impulse purchasing opportunities, but little is known about this sudden, compelling, hedonically complex purchasing behavior in non-Western cultures. Yet cultural factors moderate(More)
Interleukin (IL)-13 is a key cytokine driving allergic and asthmatic responses and contributes to airway inflammation in cynomolgus monkeys after segmental challenge with Ascaris suum antigen. IL-13 bioactivity is mediated by a heterodimeric receptor (IL-13Ralpha1/IL-4Ralpha) and can be inhibited in vitro by targeting IL-13 interaction with either chain.(More)
Values are assumed to be relatively stable during adulthood. Yet, little research has examined value stability and change, and there are no studies on the structure of value change. On the basis of S. H. Schwartz's (1992) value theory, the authors propose that the structure of intraindividual value change mirrors the circumplexlike structure of values so(More)

However, complexity of the personal income tax system implies that taxpayers may incorrectly perceive true marginal prices and incentives. We first develop an updating model that formalizes this proposition. A prediction of this model is that an(More)

Tau mutations are associated with frontotemperal dementia with parkinsonism on chromosome 17 (FTDP-17). rTg4510 mice overexpress human tau carrying the P301L(More)
Study the impact of CXCL13 neutralization on germinal center (GC) response in vivo, and build quantitative relationship between target coverage and pharmacological effects at the target tissue. An anti-CXCL13 neutralizing monoclonal antibody was dosed in vivo in a T-dependent mouse immunization (TDI) model. A quantitative site-of-action (SoA) model was(More)
