BACKGROUND Flaxseed consumption has been shown to improve blood lipids in humans and flaxseed-derived lignan has been shown to enhance glycemic control in animals. The study aimed to investigate the effect of a flaxseed-derived lignan supplement on glycemic control, lipid profiles and insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetic patients. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL(More)
The booming popularity of smartphones is partly a result of application markets where users can easily download wide range of third-party applications. However, due to the open nature of markets, especially on Android, there have been several privacy and security concerns with these applications. On Google Play, as with most other markets, users have direct(More)
Role mining is a very useful engineering method to help administrators set up the mechanism of role based access control for information systems, but not applied in the Android security framework so far. This paper uses large volume Android applications from the Android Market (Google Play Store now), which include 44,971 applications (subjects), 125(More)
Content Centric Networking (CCN) is a new paradigm in networking and a future Internet architecture. Performance evaluations show that conventional CCN forwarding strategies which use replication of Interests (standard) or the shortest path (best-face) do not perform well under high bandwidth requirements and loaded networks. We have designed and evaluated(More)
Online services are increasingly dependent on user participation. Whether it's online social networks or crowdsourcing services, understanding user behavior is important yet challenging. In this paper, we build an unsupervised system to capture dominating user behaviors from clickstream data (traces of users' click events), and visualize the detected(More)
As the substrate of structured peer-to-peer systems, distributed hash table (DHT) plays a key role in P2P routing infrastructures. Traditional DHT does not consider the location of the nodes for the assignment of identifiers, which will result in high end-to-end latency on DHT-based overlay networks. In this paper, we propose a design of locality-aware DHT(More)
This paper studies microprocessor floorplanning considering thermal and throughput optimization. We first develop a stochastic heat diffusion model taking into account the application dependent power load for thermal analysis. Then, we design the floorplanning algorithm based on this model. Experimental results show that, compared with the deterministic(More)
Ionic polymer hydrogels with thermal responsive units are found to induce higher water permeation rates in the osmosis process, and higher water release rates under a combination of pressure and thermal stimuli. These hydrogels have the potential for use as draw agent in forward osmosis desalination.
Since 1950 the sources of the gains from marriage have changed radically. As the educational attainment of women overtook and surpassed that of men and the ratio of men's to women's wage rates fell, traditional patterns of gender specialization in work weakened. The primary source of the gains to marriage shifted from the production of household services(More)
