The design trend of caches in modern processors continues to increase their capacity with higher associativity to cope with large data footprint and take advantage of feature size shrink, which, unfortunately, also leads to higher energy consumption. This paper presents a technique using segmented counting Bloom filters called "Way Guard" to reduce the(More)
Sir: Observer effects are rooted in the universal human tendency to interpret data in a manner consistent with one’s expectations (1). This tendency is particularly likely to distort the results of a scientific test when the underlying data are ambiguous and the scientist is exposed to domain-irrelevant information that engages emotions or desires (2).(More)
Capillary permeability was investigated in 32 Thai patients aged 14-49 years who had acute falciparum malaria with use of three distinct techniques: quantitation of the urinary albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR), estimation of the transcapillary escape rate of radiolabeled albumin (TER), and retinal photography/fluorescein angiography. Fourteen patients had(More)
BACKGROUND AQ4N (1,4-bis[[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl] amino]-5,8-dihydroxyanthracene-9, 10-dione bis-N-oxide dihydrochloride) is a prodrug which is selectively activated within hypoxic tissues to AQ4, a topoisomerase II inhibitor and DNA intercalator. PATIENTS AND METHODS In the phase I study, 22 patients with oesophageal carcinoma received an i.v. infusion(More)
The novel organoarsenical GSAO, 4-(N-(S-glutathionylacetyl)amino) phenylarsonous acid, has potential anti-angiogenic capability with application in cancer where tumour metastasis relies on neo-vascularisation. As GSAO arsenic is trivalent, the arsenoxide moiety reacts with appropriately spaced cysteine residues on adenine nucleotide translocase (ANT)(More)
BACKGROUND Patient monitoring displays are designed to improve patient safety, and yet little is known about how anesthesiologists interact with these displays. Previous studies of clinician behavior used an observer in the operating room, which may have altered behavior. We describe a covert observation technique to determine how often and for how long(More)
BACKGROUND Current methods of information transfer in the operating room between monitor and anesthesiologist rely on visual and auditory modalities. These modalities can easily become overloaded in a high cognitive workload situation, such as in a critical incident. The use of vibrotactile communication has been shown to improve information transfer in(More)
Promoters of forensic DNA testing have done a good job selling the public, and even many criminal defense lawyers, on the idea that DNA tests provide a unique and infallible identification. DNA evidence has sent thousands of people to prison and, in recent years, has played a vital role in exonerating men who were falsely convicted. Even former critics of(More)
