Babesiosis is a tick-borne illness endemic to the coastal areas of southern New England. Despite the enormous safety measures that transfusion and blood bank services perform for each product, transfusion of blood products is not without risk. The majority of transfusion-related reactions and complications are recognized soon after transfusion. We report a(More)
The application of artificial intelligence technologies encompasses a number of fields with opportunities for exploiting these tools to solve real world problems that traditional programming environments do not offer. Expert systems offer a structured approach to knowledge representation and use techniques to manipulate data in ways that may generate(More)
"A new family of migration models belonging to the elimination by aspects family is examined, with the spatial interaction model shown to be a special case. The models have simple forms; they incorporate information flow processes and choice set constraints; they are free of problems raised by the Luce Choice Axiom; and are capable of generating(More)
SAND (Spatial and Non-spatial Data) is an interactive environment that enables the development of spatial database applications. It was designed as a tool for rapid prototyping of algorithms and query evaluation plans dealing with spatial and nonspatial data. In this paper we give an overview of SAND's architecture and illustrate how typical spatial and(More)
Intelligent, agile manufacturing relies on automated programming of digitally controlled processes. Currently, processes such as Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machining are difficult to automate because of highly restrictive controllers and poor software environments. It is also difficult to utilize sensors and process models for adaptive control,(More)
INTRODUCTION Graves' disease (GD) and thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy (TAO) are thought to result from actions of pathogenic antibodies mediated through the thyrotropin receptor (TSHR). This leads to the unregulated consequences of the antibody-mediated receptor activity in the thyroid and connective tissues of the orbit. Recent studies reveal antibodies(More)
