Text retrieval systems are used to fetch documents from large text collections, using queries consisting of words and word sequences. A shortcoming of current systems is that word-sequence queries, also known as phrase queries, can be expensive to evaluate, particularly if they include common words. Another limitation is that some forms of querying are not(More)

This study aimed to explore the effects of age upon hospitalization outcomes for patients with dementia in comparison to patients without dementia. METHODS Data extracted from the New South Wales Admitted Patient Care Database for people aged 50 years and(More)
Heterotrimeric G proteins are signal-transducing molecules activated by seven transmembrane domain receptors. In C. elegans, gpb-1 encodes the sole Gbeta subunit; therefore, its inactivation should affect all heterotrimeric G protein signaling. When maternal but no zygotic gpb-1 protein (GPB-1) is present, development proceeds until the first larval stage,(More)
The Staufen family consists of proteins that possess double-stranded RNA-binding domains (dsRBDs). Staufen proteins of Drosophila and mammals regulate mRNA localization, translation, and decay. We report analysis of Staufen in Caenorhabditis elegans, which we have designated STAU-1. We focus on its biochemical properties, mRNA targets, and possible role in(More)
BACKGROUND In Australia, many community service program data collections developed over the last decade, including several for aged care programs, contain a statistical linkage key (SLK) to enable derivation of client-level data. In addition, a common SLK is now used in many collections to facilitate the statistical examination of cross-program use. In(More)

Not since our state park system was created has the state undertaken an outdoor initiative of this potential scope. This initiative will soon begin uniting our state's disconnected routes and place every Hoosier within 15 minutes of a trail. The whole(More)
We provide an overview of the Themis system, a commercial implementation of a digital library of legislation. !l'hemis uses SGML to store legislation. This allows a single source document to be exported in a number of different formats and presentations. Themis also allows access to different versions of legislation by specifying a point-in-time at which(More)
