The effects of isolation and generation on memory for order were investigated in 4 experiments. Experiments 1 and 2 examined the effect of isolation on order retention. Previous investigations in this area have yielded equivocal results. Experiments 1 and 2 revealed that isolation enhances memory for order: Isolated items were repositioned more accurately… (More)
The phonological similarity effect--poor retention of order for lists of similar-sounding items--is a benchmark finding in the short-term memory literature. In our first two experiments, we show that the effect actually reverses following relatively brief periods of distraction, yielding better order retention for similar than for dissimilar lists, provided… (More)
Since 1994, the US Federal Communications Commission has conducted 82 auctions of radio-frequency spectrum. Of these, 14 have been for microwave spectrum (above 1,000 MHz), which can be used for fixed and mobile broadband services. Often postponed, the upcoming 700-MHz auction is finally scheduled to begin on 24 January 2008. On the block will be the… (More)

At the end of the Cold War, the manufacturing operations involved in making military equipment and commercial goods are commonly believed to intersect hardly at all. Our analyses of 1991 survey data from a large sample of establishments in the machining-intensive durable goods sector show that there are few technical and competitive conditions separating… (More)
In this paper image processing based intelligent traffic light control system is designed. Inductive loop method is mostly used for traffic detection. But it is physically large, hard to install and maintain. Present system has fixed timing for traffic control so the present traffic system is not much efficient to manage or control the traffic. Also… (More)
