Twitter, used in 200 countries with over 250 million tweets a day, is a rich source of local news from around the world. Many events of local importance are first reported on Twitter, including many that never reach news channels. Further, there are often only a few tweets reporting each such event, in contrast with the larger volumes that follow events of(More)
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) are ligand-activated transcription factors of nuclear hormone receptor superfamily comprising of the following three subtypes: PPARα, PPARγ, and PPARβ/δ. Activation of PPAR-α reduces triglyceride level and is involved in regulation of energy homeostasis. Activation of PPAR-γ causes insulin sensitization(More)
We seek to extend the scope and efficiency of iterative compilation techniques by searching not only for program transformation parameters but for the most appropriate transformations themselves. For that purpose, we need to find a generic way to express program transformations and compositions of transformations. In this article, we introduce a framework(More)
This paper presents a new architecture model, named Weld, for VLIW processors. Weld integrates multithreading support into a VLIW processor to hide run-time latency effects that cannot be determined by the compiler. It does this through a novel hardware technique called operation welding that merges operations from different threads to utilize the hardware(More)
Objective. To determine predictors of patient adherence to CPAP. Design. A retrospective chart review identified patients with AHI values greater than 15 who were recommended to receive CPAP. Compliance was measured at a 1-to 4-month interval and at 1 year. Results. There were 106 of 368 (29%) patients who received CPAP therapy that were compliant with CPAP(More)
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) accounts for 80% of all nonmelanoma skin cancers. Its metastasis is extremely rare, ranging between 0.0028 and 0.55 of all BCC cases. The usual metastasis to lymph nodes, lungs, bones, or skin is from the primary tumor situated in the head and neck region in nearly 85% cases. A 69-year-old male developed progressively increasing(More)
Mexican blind cavefish exhibit an unconditioned wall-following behavior in response to novel environments. Similar behaviors have been observed in a wide variety of animals, but the biological significance and evolutionary history of this behavior are largely unknown. In this study, the behaviors of Mexican blind cavefish (Astyanax sp.) and sighted Mexican(More)

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, autoimmune and inflammatory joint disease with a poorly understood etiology. Despite widespread diagnostic use of anti-citrullinated protein antibodies and rheumatoid factor proteins there is a strong demand for novel serological biomarkers to improve the diagnosis this disease. The present study was aimed to identify(More)
Computed tomographic (CT) images are widely used in the diagnosis of stroke. In this paper, we present an automated method to detect and classify an abnormality into acute infarct, chronic infarct and hemorrhage at the slice level of non-contrast CT images. The proposed method consists of three main steps: image enhancement, detection of mid-line symmetry(More)
BACKGROUND Extra-adrenal pheochromocytomas are rare. Minimally invasive techniques have been utilized for incidentally discovered masses with successful results. METHODS We present a case of a 64-year-old female with a 3.5-cm mass located between her left renal artery and vein, treated by a 4-port robot-assisted transperitoneal laparoscopic approach. (More)
