Detecting hedges and their scope in natural language text is very important for information inference. In this paper, we present a system based on a cascade method for the CoNLL-2010 shared task. The system composes of two components: one for detecting hedges and another one for detecting their scope. For detecting hedges, we build a cascade subsystem.(More)
A single double-strand break (DSB) induced by HO endonuclease triggers both repair by homologous recombination and activation of the Mec1-dependent DNA damage checkpoint in budding yeast. Here we report that DNA damage checkpoint activation by a DSB requires the cyclin-dependent kinase CDK1 (Cdc28) in budding yeast. CDK1 is also required for DSB-induced(More)
—As benchmark programs for microprocessor archi-tectures, network-on-chip (NoC) traffic patterns are essential tools for NoC performance assessments and architecture explorations. The fidelity of NoC traffic patterns has profound influence on NoC studies. For the first time, this paper presents a realistic traffic benchmark suite, called MCSL, and the(More)
Crosstalk noise is an intrinsic characteristic of photonic devices used by optical networks-on-chip (ONoCs) as well as a potential issue. For the first time, this paper analyzed and modeled the crosstalk noise, signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and bit error rate (BER) of optical routers and ONoCs. The analytical models for crosstalk noise, minimum SNR, and(More)
World Wide Web, the biggest distributed system ever built, experiences tremendous growth and change in Web sites, users, and technology. A realistic and accurate characterization of Web workload is the first, fundamental step in areas such as performance analysis and prediction, capacity planning, and admission control. Compared to the previous work, in(More)
Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder of uncertain pathogenesis characterized by a loss of dopaminergic neurons in substantia nigra pars compacta, and can be modeled by the neurotoxin 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1, 2, 3, 6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP). Oxidative stress may contribute to MPTP- and Parkinson's disease-related neurodegeneration. Fucoidan is a(More)
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are hollow , long cylinders with extremely large aspect ratios, made of one atomic sheet of carbon atoms in a honeycomb lattice. They possess extraordinary thermal, mechanical, and electrical properties and are considered as one of the most promising nano-materials for applications and basic research. This chapter(More)
