In this editorial, the author explains that the journal Temperature stands on the shoulders of giants-prominent scientists of the past and current members of the Temperature community. Temperature also uses the best tools, such as Google Scholar profiles. The editorial includes a new puzzle: why does warm water freeze faster than cold water?
BACKGROUND Amyloid plaques, a pathological hallmark of Alzheimer's disease (AD), are accompanied by activated microglia. The role of activated microglia in the pathogenesis of AD remains controversial: either clearing Aβ deposits by phagocytosis or releasing proinflammatory cytokines and cytotoxic substances. Microglia can be activated via toll-like(More)
— A vast amount of broadcasting protocols has been developed for wireless ad hoc networks. To the best of our knowledge, however, these protocols assume a single-radio single-channel and single-rate network model and/or a generalized physical model, which does not take into account the impact of interference. In this paper, we present a set of broadcasting(More)
In this talk, Dr. Min Song will explore one national technological priority, Wireless Innovation and Infrastructure Initiative, and present some NSF programs that are closely related to wireless networking research and education. Radio spectrum is a finite but exceedingly valuable natural resource that facilitates a tremendous variety of wireless(More)
This article summarizes the proceedings of a symposium held at the conference on "Alcoholism and Stress: A Framework for Future Treatment Strategies" in Volterra, Italy, May 6-9, 2008. Chaired by Markus Heilig and Roberto Ciccocioppo, this symposium offered a forum for the presentation of recent data linking neuropetidergic neurotransmission to the(More)
We present a biomedical literature data mining system SPIE-DM (Scalable and Portable Information Extraction and Data Mining) to extract and mine the protein-protein interaction network from biomedical literature such as MedLine. SPIE-DM consists of two phases: in phase 1, we develop a scalable and portable ie method (SPIE) to extract the protein-protein(More)
Cognitive radio networks are a promising solution to the spectrum scarcity issue. However, cognitive radio networks are vulnerable to various kinds of security attacks, among which the jamming attack has attracted great attention as it can significantly degrade spectrum utilization. In this article we model the jamming and anti-jamming process as a Markov(More)
In a wireless sensor network, an adversary may crack legal nodes or deploy malicious nodes to launch various attacks. These nodes are collectively called compromised nodes. In this paper, we define a data transmission quality (DTQ) function to differentiate the legitimate nodes and compromised nodes. The DTQ function is defined in a way that it will keep(More)
Recently, novel recommender systems have attracted considerable attention in the research community. Recommending popular items may not always satisfy users. For example, although most users likely prefer popular items, such items are often not very surprising or novel because users may already know about the items. Also, such recommender systems hardly(More)
