This paper examines the development of aggregators, entities that collect information from a wide range of sources, with or without prior arrangements, and add value through post-aggregation services. New Web-page extraction tools, context sensitive mediators, and agent technologies have greatly reduced the barriers to constructing aggregators. We predict(More)
The pathological basis for essential tremor (ET) is unknown. We used proton magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (1H MRSI) in 16 ET patients and 11 controls to measure levels of intracellular metabolites, including N-acetyl-L-aspartate (NAA) and total choline, relative to total creatine (tCR), in several brain regions (cerebellum, thalamus, basal(More)
The pathological basis for essential tremor (ET) is not known; however, metabolic changes in the cerebellum can be observed in positron emission tomography (PET) and (1)H magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) studies. Tremor is relatively symmetric in ET, suggesting that underlying metabolic changes could be also symmetric. The degree of metabolic(More)
OBJECTIVE Delayed repair of peripheral nerve injuries often results in poor motor functional recovery. This may be a result of the deterioration or loss of endoneurial pathways in the distal nerve stump before motor axons can regenerate into the stump. METHODS Using the rat femoral nerve, we protected distal endoneurial pathways of the saphenous nerve(More)
Time-motion (TM) studies are often considered the gold-standard for measurements of the impact of computer systems on task flow and duration. However, in many clinical environments tasks occur too rapidly and have too short of a duration to be captured with conventional paper-based TM methods. Observers may also with to categorize caregiver activities along(More)
—We introduce a new metric for live migration of virtual machines (VM) called eviction time defined as the time to evict the state of one or more VMs from the source host. Eviction time determines how quickly the source can be taken offline or its resources repurposed for other VMs. In traditional live migration, such as pre-copy and post-copy, eviction(More)
Websites are now the basic requirement to an increasing number of communication and business strategies. The usability of a website, effectiveness of its interface, as well as its amount of information , ease of navigation, and user friendliness of its functions, are central to the success of these strategies. Yet these important design qualities remain to(More)
