High-resolution topography data acquired with LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) remote sensing technology have emerged as a fundamental tool for Earth science research. Because these acquisitions are often undertaken with federal and state funds at significant cost, it is important to maximize the impact of these geospatial data by providing online access(More)
Semantic Web Service, nowadays, is emerging as a solution for interoperating distributed applications on the WWW. Web service composition is the task of combining existing web services to yield a new service in order to achieve a desired goal. In this paper, we propose a formal approach to translate OWL-S web service descriptions into primitive and complex(More)
Fe 3 O 4 were synthesized nanoparticles by thermal decomposition method with oleic acid as the surfactant, and to make them suitable for aqueous environments, dopamine ligand exchange was carried out on the particles. The nanoparticle size and phase was quantified by transmission electron microscopy ͑TEM͒ and x-ray diffraction ͑XRD͒, respectively.(More)
Leveraging service-oriented architectures and taking advantage of the high-performance compute resources provided by XSEDE, we have developed standards-based web services to address the challenges associated with processing large volumes of high resolution topography data. These web services make results from community software packages and other(More)
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a leading cause of death among outpatient chemotherapy patients. However the VTE preventive measures for outpatients are not widely advocated. We did a meta-analysis to evaluate the outpatient VTE prevention's effectiveness and safety. We searched electronic databases until the end of December 2012 and reviewed the abstracts(More)
This paper examines whether the US decision during World War I to violate enemy-owned patents-through compulsory licensing-discouraged invention. Estimates from a new data set of German patents indicate a 28 percent increase in invention. Controls for patent quality suggest that only a small share of the increase was due to lower quality, strategic patents.(More)
The OpenTopography science gateway provides efficient online access to high resolution topographic data and processing tools for a broad spectrum of research communities. We have integrated XSEDE HPC resources into the OpenTopography processing workflow to meet the growing demand for more complex and resource intensive algorithms from the wider community.
Distant gastric metastasis to the skin is uncommonly a presenting symptom, although nonspecific paraneoplastic syndromes with dermatologic manifestation including diffuse seborrheic keratoses (Leser-Trelat sign), tripe palms, and acanthosis nigricans have been described in the literature. We report here the case of a 49-year-old woman with gastric(More)
A clinical case of infection caused by Fasciolopsis buski in a 24 weeks pregnant woman from Vietnam affected by systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is reported here. On 22 February 2012 the patient was admitted to Hue Hospital in Hue, Vietnam, with a diagnosis of general illness and suspected acute anaemia. Laboratory analysis indicated possible SLE syndrome(More)
