Rhythms guide our lives. Our biological clocks tell us when we need to sleep, eat and wake. But our use of technology can interrupt and obstruct these rhythms, making it difficult for our bodies to get what they need to stay healthy and balanced. Our MoodRhythm app helps individuals to live a more naturally rhythmic day. The key goals of MoodRhythm are to(More)
Outdoor cats represent a global threat to terrestrial vertebrate conservation, but management has been rife with conflict due to differences in views of the problem and appropriate responses to it. To evaluate these differences we conducted a survey of opinions about outdoor cats and their management with two contrasting stakeholder groups, cat colony(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of hepatic impairment on the pharmacokinetics and safety of a single, oral axitinib dose in subjects with mild or moderate hepatic impairment. METHODS In this phase I, open-label, parallel-group study, a total of 24 subjects with either normal hepatic function (n = 8) or with mild (n = 8) or moderate (n = 8) hepatic(More)
OBJECT This study was designed to develop an objective and sensitive spinal cord injury (SCI) characterization protocol based on surface electromyography (EMG) activity. METHODS Twenty-four patients at both acute and chronic time points post-SCI, as well as 4 noninjured volunteers, were assessed using neurophysiological and clinical measures of volitional(More)
3 hypotheses were tested concerning the developmental relation between children's concepts of physical uncertainty and their comprehension of a speaker's uncertainty. 2 cognitive tasks of physical uncertainty were used to assign 56 subjects (aged 5-4 to 17-11) to 1 of 3 cognitive stages. 2 tests for comprehension of speaker uncertainty were administered to(More)
The transmission of puffy skin disease (PSD) to rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss Walbaum was tested in the laboratory by conducting co-habitation challenges with puffy skin (PS)-affected fish (Trojans) collected from the field. Two separate challenges were conducted using Trojans sourced from two different sites and diploid (first trial) or triploid(More)
Learning journals are implemented in undergraduate engineering design courses to encourage students to reflect actively on what they can learn from their personal experiences with team projects, lectures, and assignments. These journals are intended to catalyze student reflection and thus enhance student understanding, retention, and capacity for future(More)
Functional modeling is an abstraction technique intended to help engineering designers perform conceptual design. Functions are constructs that describe a transformation between an input flow and an output flow. A primary characteristic of functions is their independence from the physical aspects of a device or artifact. In this sense, functions are form(More)
Synopsis: This paper presents classroom assessment of a new design method for contexts " frontier " to the designer. The method adds the formal consideration of the design " context " to traditional customer needs assessment. Testing under both controlled and classroom conditions shows the new method is extremely effective, easy to use, and well received by(More)
