In the past few years, the extra-resource analysis technique popularized by Kalyanasundaram and Pruhs [7] has been used for analyzing the performance of online algorithms, primarily when traditional competitive analysis yields non-constant competitive ratios and does not differentiate between good and bad algorithms. It has been used to argue that certain(More)
Efficient Data Center Architectures Using Non-Volatile Memory and Reliability Techniques by David Andrew Roberts Chair: Trevor N. Mudge The cost of running a data center is increasingly dominated by energy consumption, contributed by power provisioning, cooling and server components such as processors, memories and disk drives. Meanwhile, emerging classes(More)
This descriptive study was intended to measure the percentage of the time that patient beds were kept in high position in an adult acute inpatient surgical unit with medical overflow in a community hospital in Michigan, United States. The percentage of the time was calculated for morning, evening, and night shifts. The results showed that overall, occupied(More)
This qualitative and descriptive study examined the feasibility of a bed-height alert system as a fall-prevention strategy. The alpha prototype was developed to measure and record bed height, and to remind staff to keep patient beds in the lowest position. This pilot project was conducted in a 52-bed adult acute surgical inpatient care unit of a Michigan(More)
It seems likely that density concerns will force the DRAM community to consider using radically different schemes for Ihe implementation of memory devices. We propose using nano-scale carbon structures as the basis for a memory device. A single-wall carbon nanotube would contain a charged buckyball. That buckyball wiLL stick tightly to one end of the tube(More)
