Organizations and individuals are calling for the universal availability of broadband as a national imperative by 2010. Although the United States has the requisite cross-continental fiber-optic backbone infrastructure in place, only 2% to 5% of that nationwide network is used today. This is because of the prohibitive cost necessary to extend the backbone(More)
Levels of IgG and IgM antibody to native type II collagen, a component of articular cartilage, were measured by a specific solid-phase radioimmunoassay, in 48 rheumatoid arthritis patients. Good correlations were found between the levels in sera and those in synovial fluids. Collagenase digestion caused a significant rise in specific antibody levels in(More)
Fimbrial proteins were extracted from 15 isolates of Moraxella bovis, and antisera to each of the preparations were raised in rabbits. The antigenic relationships of the fimbriae were investigated by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, tandem crossed immunoelectrophoresis, and a slide agglutination test. With all three methods there was a similar pattern(More)
An in vitro assay was developed using calf corneal cells to assess the importance of fimbriae in the colonisation of the bovine ocular surface by Moraxella bovis, and the role of fimbrial antibodies in the bovine immune response and resistance to infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (IBK). Fimbriae promoted adherence of M. bovis to calf corneal cells in(More)
The purpose of this paper is to report on research conducted to examine the effectiveness of different scheduling policies in a dual-constrained job shop under various workload conditions. The standard assumption in most job shop scheduling research has been that a 90% utilization of the shop is achieved. However, since shop utilization levels vary widely,(More)
The growing usage of computer networks is requiring improvements in network technologies and management techniques so users will receive high quality service. As more individuals transmit data through a computer network, the quality of service received by the users begins to degrade. A major aspect of computer networks that is vital to quality of service is(More)
