In June 1995, the Westchester County (New York) Department of Health (WCDOH) received(More)
Standard texturing of a geometric surface works by mapping a 2D image into the parametric space of the surface. This technique works great whenever the texture image is created (painted, etc) for a specific surface with predetermined contours.

The use of the endoscope (fiberscope) to assist the microsurgical clipping of cerebral aneurysm was first reported by Fischer and Mustafa in 1994. The rigid endoscope has been increasingly used during aneurysm surgery in which structures around the aneurysm can be detected with high quality imaging. Our 3 years of its use now allows us to assess the(More)
The genetic relationship between sympatric, morphologically divergent populations of anadromous and lake-resident three-spined stickleback Gasterosteus aculeatus in the Jim Creek drainage of Cook Inlet, Alaska, was examined using microsatellite loci and mitochondrial d-loop sequence data. Resident samples differed substantially from sympatric anadromous(More)
