BACKGROUND Bronchial asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease that has a severe impact on health worldwide. METHODS A survey of 10,771 patients with bronchial asthma in the Tama region, Tokyo was conducted for 5 years to examine treatment and quality of life (QOL). Subjects were patients aged ≥ 16 years and their physicians who replied to a questionnaire(More)
This paper provides new regression models for demand reduction of Demand Response programs for the purpose of ex ante evaluation of the programs and screening for recruiting customer enrollment into the programs. The proposed regression models employ load sensitivity to outside air temperature and representative load pattern derived from cluster analysis of(More)
Quantitatively expressed ideas are linkages of two or more characteristics presented by the author in tables or graphs. Such ideas also may be expressed as sentences in the text of the Results section. This study investigated the relative importance of quantitative ideas expressed in the two formats in the same article. A random sample of fifty articles(More)
As mobile phones have become increasingly advanced in recent years, it became more intense in users’ demand for viewing web sites designed for PC’s on their mobile phones. However, since a standard PC web browser requires exclusive applications, the mobile phone will need the application environment. Furthermore, a certain approach is required since mobile(More)
The measurement of air temperature is strongly influenced by environmental factors such as solar radiation, humidity, wind speed and rainfall. This is problematic in low-cost air temperature sensors, which lack a radiation shield or a forced aspiration system, exposing them to direct sunlight and condensation. In this study, we developed a machine(More)
We propose a method which adaptively selects InfiniBand transport services used for source and destination peers to improve performance while limiting memory consumption of the MPI library. There are two major choices of IB transport services available, i.e., Reliable Connection (RC) and Dynamically Connected (DC), each of which is selected for each pair of(More)
The microstructure at the interface of diffusion-bonded joints of oxygen-free high-conductivity copper for two kinds of surface conditions, with and without argon ion bombardment treatment, was investigated using scanning and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The results showed that argon ion(More)
