Organizations are moving towards a new type of work: group-to-group collaboration across distance, supported by technologies that connect rooms across distance into large collaboration spaces. In this study we report on distributed group-to-group collaboration in the domain of space mission design. We use the metaphor of the " space between " distant groups(More)
Large-scale, group-to-group collaboration is an emerging trend, yet has so far not received much attention. We performed an ethnographic study to examine how interaction and perception differ between collocated and distributed interaction. We studied a large-scale space mission design team composed of collocated teams distributed at three different sites.(More)
A new paradigm in collaborative interaction is arising. Large-scale collaborations across distance are becoming more common enabled by technological development such as the Access Grid and the need to bring together not just individuals, but entire groups of experts to solve complex problems. Despite this growing trend, this form of collaboration have not(More)
BACKGROUND Banana is a staple food in many regions with high iron deficiency and may be a potential vehicle for iron fortification. However, iron absorption from bananas is not known. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate total iron absorption from raw and cooked bananas. DESIGN Thirty women (34.9±6.6 years) from rural Mexico were(More)
Background. Late transient neonatal hypocalcemia with hyperphosphatemia is potentially life-threatening. The use of 1.25 dihydroxycholecalciferol in the management of neonatal hypocalcemia is unexplored. Objective. We hypothesized adding 1.25 dihydroxycholecalciferol to intravenous continuous calcium infusion (CaI) will achieve accelerated correction of(More)
Infant observation indicated that there is an individual variation in development characterized by orientedness either toward the animate or toward the inanimate world. These variants, which are manifest as early as the second month of life, influence the surrounds, the continuing developmental processes, and certain aspects of character formation. Each(More)
