The mechanosensory lateral line system: morphological, physiological, and behavioral study in pre- and post-metamorphic lampreys
Lampreys are extant jawless vertebrates. The oldest lamprey-like fossil, which dates from approximately 360 million years ago, exhibits many external morphological similarities with modern lampreys. It is thought that ...
The Politics of Metabolism: The Metabolic Syndrome and the Reproduction of Race and Racism
Biomedical researchers, government agencies, and the pharmaceutical industry increasingly use the term metabolic syndrome to define the observed co-occurrence of the major biological risk markers for heart disease, type ...
A Method for Stopping Active Learning Based on Stabilizing Predictions and the Need for User-Adjustable Stopping
(Association for Computational Linguistics, 2009-06)
A survey of existing methods for stopping active learning (AL) reveals the needs for methods that are: more widely applicable; more aggressive in saving annotations; and more stable across changing datasets. A new method ...
Rapid Adaptation of POS Tagging for Domain Specific Uses
(Association for Computational Linguistics, 2006-06)
Part-of-speech (POS) tagging is a fundamental component for performing natural language tasks such as parsing, information extraction, and question answering. When POS taggers are trained in one domain and applied in ...
Controlling Dangerous Pathogens
Advances in science has led to a situation where dangerous pathogens that are enormously beneficial for research can also be greatly destructive. However, scientific institutions are not prepared to handle such a burden. ...
An Approach to Reducing Annotation Costs for BioNLP
(Association for Computational Linguistics, 2008-06)
There is a broad range of BioNLP tasks for which active learning (AL) can significantly reduce annotation costs and a specific AL algorithm we have developed is particularly effective in reducing annotation costs for these ...
PUBLIC RELATIONS AND SENSEMAKING DURING ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE IN MULTINATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS IN CHINA
This study explored the role public relations plays in the sensemaking process during planned organizational change within multinational organizations in China. Three areas were examined. First, this study examined the ...
Environmental influences on physical activity and obesity in African American adolescents-a multilevel perspective
Background: Prevalence of obesity among adolescents is increasing at an alarming rate. Currently, 34% of all 12-19 year olds are either at risk for overweight or are overweight. Without a comprehensive understanding of the ...
False Vacuum at the Heart of Black Holes
It is proposed that the evaporation of black holes via Hawking radiation may conclude at densities and temperatures no higher than those invoked during the inflationary stage of common cosmological models, thus avoiding ...
John A Wheeler and the recertification of GR as true physics
The physics life of John Archibald Wheeler is surveyed; the main emphasis is on the years 1953--1976 in Princeton where his activity primarily centered on Einstein's theory of gravitation, general relativity.
