—In mobile social networks (MSNets), data dissemination is an important topic, which has not been widely investigated yet. Active data dissemination is a networking paradigm where a superuser intentionally facilitates the connectivity in the network. One of the key challenges under this paradigm is how to design the most efficient superuser route to achieve(More)
AIMS Recent studies reported slowed conduction velocity (CV) in murine hearts homozygous for the gain-of-function RyR2-P2328S mutation (RyR2(S/S)) and associated this with an increased incidence of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. The present experiments determined mechanisms contributing to the reduced atrial CV. METHODS AND RESULTS The determinants(More)
YouTube uploaders are the central agents in the YouTube phenomenon. We conduct extensive measurement and analysis of YouTube uploaders. We estimate YouTube scale and examine the uploading behavior of YouTube users. We demonstrate the positive reinforcement between on-line social behavior and uploading behavior. Furthermore, we examine whether YouTube users(More)
In Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs), information search is an important topic, which has not been widely investigated yet. Recently, pervasive and ubiquitous computing scenarios are pushing situations where it is the recipient (instead of the sender) who determines whether and how to seize data flowing in the network. Most existing information search schemes(More)
—In this paper, we consider the issue of data broadcasting in mobile social networks (MSNets). The objective is to broadcast data from a superuser to other users in the network. There are two main challenges under this paradigm, namely 1) how to represent and characterize user mobility in realistic MSNets; 2) given the knowledge of regular users' movements,(More)
We previously isolated a sulfated polysaccharide–protein complex from Gekko swinhonis Guenther, a traditional Chinese medicine, and have demonstrated its direct anti-cancer effect on human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line SMMC-7721. Here we investigated the effects of Gekko sulfated polysaccharide–protein complex (GSPP) on the defective biorheological(More)
Segmentation of spoken discourse into distinct conversational activities has been applied to broadcast news, meetings, monologs, and two-party dialogs. This paper considers the aspectual properties of discourse segments, meaning how they transpire in time. Classifiers were constructed to distinguish between segment boundaries and non-boundaries, where the(More)
