—Analysis of information retrieved from microblog-ging services such as Twitter can provide valuable insight into public sentiment in a geographic region. This insight can be enriched by visualising information in its geographic context. Two underlying approaches for sentiment analysis are dictionary-based and machine learning. The former is popular for(More)
Mutations in the neurofibromatosis 2 (NF2) gene with the resultant loss of expression of the NF2 tumor suppressor schwannomin are one of the most common causes of benign human brain tumors, including schwannomas and meningiomas. Previously we demonstrated that the hepatocyte growth factor-regulated tyrosine kinase substrate (HRS) strongly interacts with(More)
Hepatocyte growth factor-regulated tyrosine kinase substrate (HRS) is required for trafficking of cell surface receptors to the lysosome. Previously, we identified HRS as a protein that interacts with the neurofibromatosis 2 tumor suppressor schwannomin. In the present study, we established modified RT4 schwannoma cell lines that inducibly express HRS and(More)
ii To my family and loved ones iii ACKNOWLEDGMENTS I would like to thank my project mentor Dr. Jeffrey Meier and my thesis supervisor and academic advisor, Dr. Tara Smith as well as the dedicated members of my thesis committee. I owe a debt of gratitude to the staff of the Department of Epidemiology, especially, Amy Sayer, whose guidance has been invaluable(More)
The asymmetric unit of the title salt, C7H7N2 (+)·ClO4 (-), comprises two independent formula units. The solid-state structure comprises corrugated layers of cations and of anions, approximately parallel to (010). The supra-molecular layers are stabilized and connected by C-H⋯O hydrogen bonding to consolidate a three-dimensional architecture. A close(More)
Strain-induced polarization charges in a piezoelectric semiconductor effectively modulate the band structure near the interface and charge carrier transport. Fundamental investigation of the piezotronic effect has attracted broad interest, and various sensing applications have been demonstrated. This brief review discusses the fundamentals of the(More)
In the title mol-ecular salt, C7H7N2 (+)·Br(-), all the non-H atoms lie on crystallographic mirror planes. The packing consists of (010) cation-anion layers, with the cations forming dimeric units via very weak pairwise C-H⋯N inter-actions. Weak C-H⋯Br inter-actions link the cations to the anions.
The probability laws associated to domain wall depinning under fields and currents have been studied in NiFe and FePt nanowires. Three basic domain wall depinning processes, associated to different potential landscapes, are found to appear identically in those systems with very different anisotropies. We show that these processes constitute the building(More)
