LOINC is emerging as the standard for laboratory result names, and there is great interest in mapping legacy terms from laboratory systems to it. However, the mapping task is non-trivial, requiring significant resource commitment and a good understanding of the LOINC identifying attributes for the laboratory result names. Because the number of results in a(More)

Modern political philosophers have been notoriously reluctant to recognize desert in their theories of distributive justice. 2 A large measure of the philosophical resistance to desert can be attributed to the fact that much of what people possess ultimately derives from brute luck. If a person's assets come from brute luck, then she cannot be said truly to(More)
The perceptual representation of voice gender was examined with two experimental paradigms: identification/discrimination and selective adaptation. The results from the identification and discrimination of a synthetic male-female voice continuum indicated that voice gender perception was not categorical. In addition, results from selective adaptation(More)
SUMMARY MAPS is a MicroArray Project System for management and interpretation of microarray gene expression experiment information and data. Microarray project information is organized to track experiments and results that are: (1) validated by performing analysis on stored replicate gene expression data; and (2) queried according to the biological(More)

Solid area quality is one of the fundamental attributes that contributes to the perception of overall image quality. Area coverage, darkness (such as density, intensity, L*), gloss, and solid area mottle are all aspects of solid area quality that are routinely quantified. For example, measurement of overall gloss is quite common using commercially available(More)
for their support, and online producers David Hirmes and Brian Lee for building the tracking software used here. We also thank our program officers at NSF, Sue Allen and Elizabeth Vanderputten, and – most of all – the staff, teachers, and students of the participating schools for their cooperation and patience throughout a long and intensive study. Without(More)
Print quality assessment has traditionally relied on the subjective judgment of human observers. As printing technology has evolved and prices have plummeted, image quality has become an increasingly vital differentiator between competing products. Consequently, there is an expanding need for repeatable, reliable, and objective image quality assessment(More)
