To test whether the pride expression is an implicit, reliably developing signal of high social status in humans, the authors conducted a series of experiments that measured implicit and explicit cognitive associations between pride displays and high-status concepts in two culturally disparate populations--North American undergraduates and Fijian villagers(More)
As the reliance of communities on critical cyber infrastructures is growing, they are becoming more vulnerable to cyber attacks. The Community Cyber Security Maturity Model (CCSMM) was proposed to help communities establish viable and sustainable cyber security programs. Information Sharing is an important part of the CCSMM but there are significant aspects(More)
This paper presents a formal, state machine-based specification (<i>stateful specification</i>) of a group-centric secure information sharing (g-SIS) model. The stateful specification given here is a refinement of a prior specification that is given in first-order linear temporal logic (FOTL). Such FOTL specification defines authorization based solely on(More)
Widespread overuse of the herbicide glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp®, has led to the evolution of glyphosate-resistant weed biotypes, some of which persist by overproducing the herbicide's target enzyme, 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS). EPSPS is a key enzyme in the shikimic acid pathway for biosynthesis of aromatic amino(More)
Adults make inferences about the conventionality of others' behaviors based on their prevalence across individuals. Here, we look at whether children use behavioral consensus as a cue to conventionality, and whether this informs which cultural models children choose to learn from. We find that 2- to 5-year old children exhibit increasing sensitivity to(More)
Bacterial AvrE-family Type-III effector proteins (T3Es) contribute significantly to the virulence of plant-pathogenic species of Pseudomonas, Pantoea, Ralstonia, Erwinia, Dickeya and Pectobacterium, with hosts ranging from monocots to dicots. However, the mode of action of AvrE-family T3Es remains enigmatic, due in large part to their toxicity when(More)
