The present research proposes schema congruity as a theoretical basis for examining the effectiveness and consequences of product anthropomorphism. Results of two studies suggest that the ability of consumers to anthropomorphize a product and their consequent evaluation of that product depend on the extent to which that product is endowed with(More)

We found a significant effect of the degree of collectivism versus individualism present in a national culture on the propensity to offer bribes to international business(More)
IEEE 802.11s mesh networks are extending the reach and speed of wireless networks, especially in the realm of public safety. For many applications (e.g. situational awareness and emulation of push-to-talk radio) multicast is an important network service. In the future, we expect to see even more multicast traffic in mesh networks, as more bandwidth(More)
A structure is evaluated, after an earthquake, to find out whether it is usable or requires repair and retrofitting. The natural time period, damping, and mode shape are the primary dynamic characteristics of any structure that is related to seismic forces during an earthquake event. Periodic monitoring using vibration measurements is one of the most(More)
People are often reluctant to comply with social causes because doing so may involve personal sacrifices of time, money, and effort for benefits that are shared by other members of society. In an effort to increase compliance, government agencies and public institutions sometimes employ financial tools to promote social causes. However, employing financial(More)

Pneumorachis, the presence of free intraspinal air, is an exceptional radiological finding. We present a case that sustained injury following an assault and was diagnosed to have diffuse pneumocephalus, pneumorachis and extensive surgical emphysema of the head and neck region secondary to the fracture of the cribriform plate of ethmoid bone. To the best of(More)
