This paper attempts to identify job networks among Mexican migrants in the U. S. labor market. The empirical analysis uses data on migration patterns and labor market outcomes, based on a sample of individuals belonging to multiple origin-communities in Mexico, over a long period of time. Each community's network is measured by the proportion of the sampled(More)
The startle response is inhibited when the startle-eliciting stimulus is preceded 30–500 ms by a prepulse. This effect, known as prepulse inhibition (PPI), is believed to represent a sensorimotor gating mechanism, which protects the brain from experiencing sensory overload. PPI is disturbed in many psychiatric disorders. Within healthy populations, women(More)
Earlier, we reported that CTLA4 expression is inversely correlated with CD38 expression in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) cells. However, the specific role of CTLA4 in CLL pathogenesis remains unknown. Therefore, to elucidate the possible role of CTLA4 in CLL pathogenesis, CTLA4 was down-regulated in primary CLL cells. We then evaluated(More)
This paper presents Improved Mountain Clustering (IMC) based medical image segmentation. Proposed technique is a more powerful approach for X-Ray image based diagnosing diseases like lung cancer and tuberculosis. The IMC based segmentation approach was applied on lung X-Ray images and compared with some existing techniques such as K-Means and FCM based(More)
BACKGROUND The flexible fibreoptic bronchoscope and bonfils rigid intubation endoscope are being widely used for difficult intubations. METHODS The haemodynamic response to intubation under general anaesthesia was studied in 60 adult female patients who were intubated using either flexible fibreoptic bronchoscope or bonfils rigid intubation endoscope (30(More)
This paper describes the development of a computerized line maintenance simulation model for strategic manpower planning at Continental Airlines for one of their major maintenance stations at Newark airport. The simulation model provides guidelines to the development of enhanced staffing models and a better understanding of resource requirements on a daily(More)
OBJECTIVE Using the electronic medical record (EMR) to capture structured clinical data at the point of care would be a practical way to support quality improvement and practice-based research in epilepsy. METHODS We describe our stepwise process for building structured clinical documentation support tools in the EMR that define best practices in(More)
The Occurrence of spontaneous Extradural Hematoma (EDH) is rare neurological complication in patient with sickle cell disease. We report a twenty year old male patient with sickle cell disease who developed persistent headache and joint pain as a part of sickle cell crisis. One day He suddenly became altered conscious and on brain computed tomography (CT),(More)
