IS150, a member of the widespread IS3 family, contains two consecutive out-of-phase open reading frames, orfA and orfB, that partially overlap. These open reading frames encode three proteins, InsA, InsB, and the InsAB protein, which is jointly encoded by both open reading frames by means of programmed translational frameshifting. We demonstrate that the(More)
“Three Angry Men” is an augmented reality experience, in which the user becomes a character in a radically abridged version of the play “Twelve Angry Men.” The other characters in this experience appear to the user as texture-mapped video mixed with the physical surroundings. At any time, the user may change seats to occupy a different character’s point of(More)
"Three Angry Men" is a novel augmented reality experience that explores the use of Augmented Reality (AR) as a dramatic medium. The user participates in an AR version of the famous twentieth-century play, "Twelve Angry Men," [Rose 1983] which for practical reasons we have abbreviated into a scene involving 3 characters (thus, "Three Angry Men"). The(More)
We develop a multivariate generalization of the Markov–switching GARCH model introduced by Haas, Mittnik, and Paolella (2004b) and derive its fourth–moment structure. An application to international stock markets illustrates the relevance of accounting for volatility regimes from both a statistical and economic perspective, including out–of–sample portfolio(More)
Despite overwhelming evidence of the benefits of risk-adjusted oral anticoagulation on stroke reduction in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), there is still considerable undertreatment. A multidisciplinary expert group was formed to discuss issues surrounding anticoagulant treatment of patients with AF to try and achieve consensus on various aspects of(More)
Laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) is a non-invasive method to assess pulpal blood flow (PBF). Dental injury has been associated with losses of pulpal sensibility. The purpose of this study was to assess whether LDF could be used to detect short- and long-term changes of PBF values of luxated permanent maxillary central incisors after repositioning and(More)
An asymmetric multivariate generalization of the recently proposed class of normal mixture GARCH models is developed. Issues of parametrization and estimation are discussed. Conditions for covariance stationarity and the existence of the fourth moment are derived, and expressions for the dynamic correlation structure of the process are provided. In an(More)
