Snowshoe hares (Lepus americanus Erxleben, 1777) fluctuate in 9–10 year cycles throughout much of their North American range. These cycles show large variations in cyclic amplitude and we ask what factors could cause amplitude variation. We gathered data from 1976 to 2012 on hare numbers in the boreal forest of Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, and(More)
This paper addresses the question of why, in spite of its recent success, behavioral economics does not influence most discussions about how economic policy ought to be made. Failing to penetrate into contemporary discourse on leading policy issues is a serious problem, because behavioral techniques often point to policy prescriptions that are at odds with(More)
Snowshoe hares (Lepus americanus Erxleben, 1777) fluctuate in 9–10 year cycles throughout much of their North American range. Regional synchrony has been assumed to be the rule for these cycles, so that hare populations in virtually all of northwestern North America have been assumed to be in phase.We gathered qualitative and quantitative data on hare(More)
There is compelling evidence that typical decision-makers, including individual investors and even professional money managers, care about the difference between their portfolio returns and a reference point, or benchmark return. In the context of financial markets, likely benchmarks against which investors compare their own returns include easy-to-focus-on(More)
11 This paper proposes a new statistical technique for deciding which of two theories is better supported 12 by a given set of data while allowing for the possibility of drawing no conclusion at all. Procedurally 13 similar to the classical hypothesis test, the proposed technique features three, as opposed to two, 14 mutually exclusive data classifications:(More)
The crossover points of nine intra-I region recombinant mouse strains were determined by restriction fragment analysis. The recombinants were examined for the presence of k and p haplotype specific DNA restriction endonuclease sites. These restriction sites were a Sac I site between the E beta and E beta 2 genes, a Hpa I site within the E beta 2 gene, and a(More)
The anti-cancer drug camptothecin inhibits replication and transcription by trapping DNA topoisomerase I (Top1) covalently to DNA in a "cleavable complex". To examine the effects of camptothecin on RNA synthesis genome-wide we used Bru-Seq and show that camptothecin treatment primarily affected transcription elongation. We also observed that camptothecin(More)
This paper presents geo-spatial information concerning access to grocery stores in Dallas County, Texas. A map shows the spatial distribution of neighborhoods classified according to the number of grocery stores within a one-mile radius. Neighborhood-level data from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and US Census reveal distinct demographic(More)
This paper describes our approach to assured information sharing. The research is being carried out under a MURI 9Multiuniversiyt Research Initiative) project funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR). The main objective of our project is: define, design and develop an Assured Information Sharing Lifecycle (AISL) that realizes the DoD's(More)
