An investigation of the relationship between impaired control over gambling, coping strategies, and demographic variables was conducted by surveying female poker machine players (N = 163) in their gaming venues. Metropolitan (n = 14) and regional (n = 6) gaming venues in Victoria, Australia participated. Control over gambling was measured using the Impaired(More)
Electronic textile research often centers on the concept of introducing electronics to apparel such as shirts jackets, gloves, and health vests. Another less researched concept incorporates electronics into large textile surfaces such as carpets and upholstery. In this paper we explore methods and challenges of building a large surface area electronic(More)
— This paper describes a feasibility study for a self-contained, wearable full-body motion capture system based on time-of-flight measurements that provide absolute distances between points on the body. Our motivation for the system is to allow an e-textile garment to sense its own shape using only body-worn sensors, thereby enabling it to dynamically adapt(More)
This paper considers the impact of fabric properties on the e-textile design process. Specifically, properties such as weave pattern, drape, and weight are evaluated as physical aspects of an e-textile system within an expanded design flow. Results from woven e-textile samples are reported and analyzed, with a more detailed analysis on sensors as fibers in(More)
This paper describes an Android mobile app we developed to simplify the shopping experience of participants in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), which provides low-income families vouchers to purchase life-stage appropriate, nutritious foods. Our app helps alleviate the tedious and error-prone use of paper(More)
Detailed results are presented for the distributions of triterpenoid alkanes, acids and alcohols of the hopane family in ten samples of peat from three environments, and of contributing organisms in the case of Lyne of Skene, Scotland. Extended hopanoids of the beta alpha and alpha beta configuration appear at the very earliest stage of diagenesis. Such(More)
