BACKGROUND Cocaine dependence is associated with high rates of relapse. Stress and drug cue exposure are known to increase cocaine craving and stress arousal, but the association between these responses and cocaine relapse has not been previously studied. OBJECTIVE To examine whether stress-induced and drug cue-induced cocaine craving and(More)
Forest and rural fires are one of the main causes of environmental degradation in Mediterranean countries. Existing fire detection systems only focus on detection, but not on the verification of the fire. However, almost all of them are just simulations, and very few implementations can be found. Besides, the systems in the literature lack scalability. In(More)
— Wireless sensor networks have become increasingly popular due to their wide range of applications. Energy consumption is one of the biggest constraints of the wireless sensor node and this limitation combined with a typical deployment of large number of nodes have added many challenges to the design and management of wireless sensor networks. They are(More)
INTRODUCTION Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) is the most common form of female sexual dysfunction and is characterized by low sexual desire that causes distress. AIM The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of flibanserin, a postsynaptic 5-HT(1A) agonist/5-HT(2A) antagonist, in premenopausal women with HSDD. METHODS North(More)
One of the most desirable issues in team sports is to know how the physical state of each sportsman or sportswoman is performing during the match. Concretely, a soccer match is 90 minutes long and the players could be more or less tired depending on the dynamic of the soccer game (fast or slow) and on the place where the ball have been rolling (which(More)
Sensor networks are becoming one of the most used technologies in our lives. Although there are several surveys about sensor networks, almost all of them focus on theoretical basis with little simulations. Some of the studies only explain where these kinds of networks can be useful, without details on how can they be applied. This paper classifies the(More)
A cloud does not have infinite computational and storage resources in its infrastructure. If it saturates, it will not be able to satisfy new requests for service allocations sent by its customers. Clouds should interrelate through networking protocols in order to provide scala-bility, efficiency and flexibility by using the services and the computational(More)
Nowadays, organizations are resorting to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems to monitor and manage their network infrastructures. SIEMs employ a data collection capability based on many sensors placed in critical points of the network, which forwards events to a core facility for processing and support different forms of analysis (e.g.,(More)
We examined associations between types of childhood maltreatment and the onset, escalation, and severity of substance use in cocaine dependent adults. In men (n = 55), emotional abuse was associated with a younger age of first alcohol use and a greater severity of substance abuse. In women (n = 32), sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and overall maltreatment(More)
