This article presents the results of a study conducted in two phases within a single industry context. The first phase involved comparative case studies to ground the applicability of the resource-based view of the firm within the domain of environmental responsiveness. The second phase involved testing the relationships observed during the case studies(More)
We integrate perspectives from the literature on contingency, dynamic capabilities, and the natural resource-based view oi the firm to propose how dimensions of the general competitive environment of a business will influence the development ol a dynamic, proactive corporate strategy for managing the business-natural environment interface. We also explain(More)
Prior research has documented a modulating effect of taste on swallowing. We hypothesized that presentation of tastant stimuli would be a significant variable in swallowing-respiratory coordination, duration of oral bolus preparation, and submental muscle contraction. Twenty-three healthy females were presented with 1-cm(3) gelatin samples flavored with 4(More)
BACKGROUND The right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) is acknowledged to be responsible for arrhythmogenesis in Brugada syndrome (BrS), but the pathophysiology remains controversial. OBJECTIVES This study assessed the substrate underlying BrS at post-mortem and in vivo, and the role for open thoracotomy ablation. METHODS Six whole hearts from male(More)
Cardiovascular remodelling in the conditioned athlete is frequently associated with physiological ECG changes. Abnormalities, however, may be detected which represent expression of an underlying heart disease that puts the athlete at risk of arrhythmic cardiac arrest during sports. It is mandatory that ECG changes resulting from intensive physical training(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate a clinical classification system, the Clinical Age-Related Maculopathy Staging (CARMS) system, for age-related maculopathy (ARM) using a simple grading scale designed for clinical practice and clinical research protocols. PARTICIPANTS Two hundred forty-six male and female participants with various stages of ARM who were enrolled(More)
We use an algebraic theory based on tensor products to model multistage interconnec-tion networks. This algebraic theory has been used for designing and implementing block recursive numerical algorithms on shared-memory vector multiprocessors. In this paper, we focus on the modeling of multistage interconnection networks. The tensor product representations(More)
We present an algebraic theory based on tensor products for modeling direct interconnection networks. This algebraic theory has been used for designing and implementing block recursive numerical algorithms on shared-memory vector multiprocessors. This theory can be used for mapping algorithms expressed in ten-sor product form onto distributed-memory(More)
