Performance of models for estimating absolute risk difference in multicenter trials with binary outcome

Claudia Pedroza & Van Truong
Abstract Background Reporting of absolute risk difference (RD) is recommended for clinical and epidemiological prospective studies. In analyses of multicenter studies, adjustment for center is necessary when randomization is stratified by center or when there is large variation in patients outcomes across centers. While regression methods are used to estimate RD adjusted for baseline predictors and clustering, no formal evaluation of their performance has been previously conducted. Methods We performed a simulation study to evaluate...

Exploring the read-write genome: mobile DNA and mammalian adaptation

James A. Shapiro
The read–write genome idea predicts that mobile DNA elements will act in evolution to generate adaptive changes in organismal DNA. This prediction was examined in the context of mammalian adaptations involving regulatory non-coding RNAs, viviparous reproduction, early embryonic and stem cell development, the nervous system, and innate immunity. The evidence shows that mobile elements have played specific and sometimes major roles in mammalian adaptive evolution by generating regulatory sites in the DNA and providing interaction...

Modality exclusivity norms for 747 properties and concepts in Dutch: a replication of English (in prep.)

Pablo Bernabeu, Max M Louwerse & Roel M Willems
This study is a cross-linguistic, conceptual replication of Lynott and Connell’s (2009, 2013) modality exclusivity norms. Their English properties and concepts were translated into Dutch, then independently tested as follows. Forty-two respondents rated the auditory, haptic, and visual strength of those words. Mean ratings were then computed, with a high interrater reliability and interitem consistency. Based on the three modalities, each word also features a specific modality exclusivity, and a dominant modality. The norms also...

Classical (Economics) Equilibrium and the Fractal

Blair Macdonald
Any iteration less than fractal equilibrium will result in an imperfect (snowflake) shape or incomplete knowledge or information.
Any iteration point greater fractal equilibrium will result with little added gain in information or shape - and it will come at a great cost.Quantum Mechanics, Information and Knowledge, All Aspects of Fractal Geometry and Revealed in an Understanding of Marginal Economics http://vixra.org/abs/1704.0126

Parallel Explanations of the Fractal and Classical Economics

Blair Macdonald
Read my working paper Quantum Mechanics, Information and Knowledge, All Aspects of Fractal Geometry and Revealed in an Understanding of Marginal Economics http://vixra.org/abs/1704.0126
For some time now I have pondered on the fractal, particularly the development the Koch Snowflake fractal. I have noticed how it uncannily demonstrates many of the key features of economic theory.
Could it be that the economy - as we experience it - is a fractal? Is it that the fractal can be...

Adherence and invasive properties of Corynebacterium diphtheriae strains correlates with the predicted membrane-associated and secreted proteome

Vartul Sangal, Jochen Blom, Iain Sutcliffe, Christina Von Hunolstein, Andreas Burkovski & Paul Hoskisson
Abstract Background Non-toxigenic Corynebacterium diphtheriae strains are emerging as a major cause of severe pharyngitis and tonsillitis as well as invasive diseases such as endocarditis, septic arthritis, splenic abscesses and osteomyelitis. C. diphtheriae strains have been reported to vary in their ability to adhere and invade different cell lines. To identify the genetic basis of variation in the degrees of pathogenicity, we sequenced the genomes of four strains of C. diphtheriae (ISS 3319, ISS 4060,...

Spatiotemporal Modeling of Node Temperatures in Supercomputers

Curtis B. Storlie, Brian J. Reich, William N. Rust, Lawrence O. Ticknor, Amanda M. Bonnie, Andrew J. Montoya & Sarah E. Michalak
Los Alamos National Laboratory is home to many large supercomputing clusters. These clusters require an enormous amount of power (∼500–2000 kW each), and most of this energy is converted into heat. Thus, cooling the components of the supercomputer becomes a critical and expensive endeavor. Recently, a project was initiated to investigate the effect that changes to the cooling system in a machine room had on three large machines that were housed there. Coupled with this...
