Although lack of access to nonemergency medical transportation (NEMT) is a barrier to health care, national transportation and health care surveys have not comprehensively addressed that link. Nationally representative studies have not investigated the magnitude of the access problem or the characteristics of the population that experiences access problems.(More)
Myelolipomas are benign tumors composed of fat cells and mature bone marrow elements. They usually occur in the adrenal glands; fewer than 20 extra-adrenal myelolipomas have been reported. Myelolipomas may be found in abdominal, pelvic, or mediastinal sites. We report a patient with a right posterior mediastinal myelolipoma that was successfully resected.
A 35-year-old female with a history of cardiac problems was found dead. She had been prescribed 40 mg of propranolol (Inderal) to be taken twice daily. Autopsy revealed the presence of a green liquid in the stomach, but there was no anatomic cause of death. Toxicologic analyses of appropriate body fluids confirmed the suspicion that the deceased had(More)
The purpose of this paper is to present an analytic procedure for testing the feasibility of using signal pre-emption as a tool for transit demand management. Signal pre-emption is designed to reduce delays, thus resulting in reduced cycle time, reduced fleet size and reduced operating cost. Further, reduced travel time is likely to make the transit system(More)

Large scale transportation projects represent major investments in construction, operation, and maintenance of facilities over an extended period. Typically, these investments are irreversible in nature and require long-term commitment by the public at large relative to utilization, maintenance, and operation. Traditional economic analysis techniques used(More)
The authors present a procedure for resource allocation among transit agencies for transit fleet management, specifically focusing on the purchase of new buses and rebuilding of existing buses. The model is formulated as a non-linear optimization problem of maximizing the total weighted average remaining life of the fleet subject to budgetary, policy and(More)

Investment in new large transportation infrastructure is capital-intensive and irreversible in nature. Private sector participation in infrastructure investment has gained popularity in recent times because of scarcity of resources at the public sector, and because of the ability of the private sector to build, operate, maintain such facilities, and share(More)
