Sensor-enabled smartphones are creating new application domains and transforming existing ones-from mobile health to quantified-self, mobile sensing is radically changing the way we collect and mine information about people's activities, contexts, and social networks. A number of challenges stand in the way of delivering mobile sensing to the masses. For(More)
While dams have multiple benefits (balanced against financial and environmental costs), they can also present a risk to public safety and economic infrastructure. This risk stems from two sources: the possibility of a dam failure and the damage it would cause. Although dam failures are infrequent, age, construction deficiencies, inadequate maintenance, and(More)
8 e now live in a world where forms of mobile sensing – for example, the monitoring of physical activity, sleep habits or commute patterns using a mixture of inertial, location and audio sensors – that until recently were firmly in the domain of research, are now rapidly becoming commonplace application features. They are well known to consumers, present in(More)
The annual consideration of appropriations bills (regular, continuing, and supplemental) by Congress is part of a complex set of budget processes that also encompasses the consideration of budget resolutions, revenue and debt-limit legislation, other spending measures, and reconciliation bills. In addition, the operation of programs and the spending of(More)
