Project ICHIGAN is a voluntary-based attempt to build a reference IT architecture for local governments that can withstand large-scale natural disasters. This architecture is unique in that 1) it has the concept of phases of the situation for which different priorities on non-functional requirements are applied, and 2) the functionalities and services(More)

In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the core promoters of class II genes contain either TATA or TATA-like elements to direct accurate transcriptional initiation. Genome-wide analyses show that the consensus sequence of the TATA element is TATAWAWR (8 bp), whereas TATA-like elements carry one or two mismatches to this consensus. The fact that several functionally(More)
Cyclopentyl methyl ether (CPME) has been used in chemical synthesis as an alternative to hazardous solvents. According to some earlier investigation by others, CPME has low acute or subchronic toxicity with moderate irritation and negative mutagenicity and negative skin sensitization (Local Lymph Node Assay). Calculated Permitted Daily Exposure (PDE) value(More)
Conventional sensors have been designed to minimize noise effects. Any sensor that is designed to detect a certain physical variable is influenced to a certain degree by other physical variables. This suggests that any sensor is potentially tap able of detecting multiple physical variables. In the present study, we consider sensing devices that are easily(More)
