Deep dermal up-regulation of HIF-1A is directly correlated with apoptosis in Spitz tumors

, , & Salvador J. Diaz-Cano
Background: The microvessel profile bases in cutaneous atypical melanocytic lesions (atypical melanocytic nevi, AMN, and Spitz tumors, ST) are poorly understood. No study has correlated microvessel profile and HIF-1 expression with cell kinetics by topographic compartments in AMN and ST to date. Design: We selected low-grade AMN (93), high-grade AMN (31), ST (42), malignant melanomas (42, 15 radial growth phase MM-RGP and 27 vertical growth phase MM- VGP), and conventional melanocytic nevi (15 junctional, 20...

Cell kinetics in superficial squamous cell carcinoma of the skin: Role of mismatch repair proteins and telomerase

, , & Salvador J. Diaz-Cano
Background: The cell kinetics of superficial squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) has revealed controversial results due to the heterogeneity of lesions considered, making it more difficult to assess key elements in squamous cell tumor progression. This study analyzes kinetics, cell survival and mismatch repair in a series of high-grade intraepithelial and microinvasive SCC. Design: We selected bowenoid actinic keratosis (HG-AK, 22 cases), SCC in-situ (37 cases) and microinvasive SCC (<3mm depth, 36 cases) that had appropriate...

Television Nations: Imagined Communities in The Simpsons

Travis Holland
This thesis responds to a call from Michael Billig for academic work examining the appearance of banal nationalism in popular culture (1995). The study is strongly informed by the process of imagining nations identified by Benedict Anderson (1991). It also draws on work by Edward Said (1978) and Stuart Hall (1997). The method and form of imagining and representing nations in The Simpsons is established and analysed. The dominant presence of the United States is...

Reciprocal Associations Between Parental Monitoring Knowledge and Impaired Driving in Adolescent Novice Drivers

, Bruce G. Simons-Morton, Federico E. Vaca & Ralph Hingson
Objective: Adolescent driving while alcohol/drug impaired (DWI) and parental monitoring knowledge may have notable interplay. However, the magnitude and direction of causality are unclear. This study examined possible reciprocal associations among adolescents between DWI and parental monitoring knowledge. Methods: The data were from waves 1, 2, and 3 (W1, W2, and W3) of the NEXT Generation Health Study, with longitudinal assessment of a nationally representative sample of 10th graders starting in 2009–2010 (n = 2,525...

Characterisation of aroma profiles of commercial sufus by odour activity value, gas chromatography-olfactometry, aroma recombination and omission studies

, Yi Shang, Feng Chen, , , &
Sufu is a solid-state fermented product made from soya beans. For the sake of quality control and regulation purposes, it is essential to be able to identify key odorants of various commercial sufus. To identify the aroma-active compounds in sufus, gas chromatography-olfactometry/aroma extract dilution analysis (GC-O/AEDA) was performed, and odour activity value (OAV) was estimated. The correlations between aroma profiles and identified aroma-active compounds were also investigated by principal component analysis. Results showed that 35...

RTD2015 22 Certainty as a Provocation: The Design and Analysis of 2 Quant-Qual Tool Dyads for a Qualified Self Technology Project

, Shruti Grover, Ross Atkin & Chris McGinley
This paper takes its starting point in recognising that the Quantified Self Movement can go beyond its existing purely quantitative nature and develop a second degree of meaning, so that the individual achieves self knowledge through human insights. We designed a research methodology to explore an individuals current and past relationship with ‘Activity Levels’ and ‘Balance Health’ using two Quant-Qual dyads. For the first Dyad, quantitative data was gathered about the number of steps taken...

RTD2015 19 RootIO - Platform Design for Civic Media

, Chris Csíkszentmihályi & Jude Mukundane
RootIO is a civic media platform and research project in the context of rural farming communities in Uganda. The RootIO project draws from prior work in Civic Media, the design of public goods and information services for communities rather than individuals. This project presents the additional challenge of designing a participatory community information platform in a relatively low literacy, low income area with little access to ICTs. Unlike many “development” projects, it focuses on local...

RTD2015 12 Reflections on Designing for Aesthetic Engagement

, Jeroen Peeters & Ambra Trotto
Recently, there has been a clear shift in the Interaction Design community towards the design for engagement as opposed to more traditional ideals of efficiency and functionality. Our work explores how to design for aesthetic engagement in interaction; building on an approach founded on phenomenology, embodiment, pragmatist aesthetics and embodied cognition. In this paper, we present four different research through design projects we have undertaken, in which we leveraged this approach. These designs cover a...

RTD2015 33 Re-knitting: exploring openness through design

& Amy Twigger Holroyd
This paper profiles a doctoral research project that investigated the idea of openness within fashion in order to understand the relationships between amateur fashion making, well-being and sustainability. The research was conducted through my practice as a designer-maker of knitwear. The primary design activity involved the development of methods of ‘opening’ and re-knitting existing garments. This activity provided a practical platform through which I was able to explore openness at two, increasingly abstract, levels: first,...

RTD2015 26 The Instrument as the Source of new in new Music

, Kristina Andersen & Dan Gibson
Like any traditional instrument, the potential of a new instrument and its possible music can only be revealed through playing. How can we treat technological matter as yet another material from which our notions of possible future instruments can be constructed, intrinsically intertwined with and informed by a practise of performance? Our approach to developing instruments for musical performance strives to not just make technology, but aesthetic and cultural objects. A musical instrument is not...

RTD2015 20 Drones for Foraging

, Carl DiSalvo & Tom Jenkins
Drones for Foraging is a research through design project that explores the use of hobbyist drones in support of urban foraging. The underlying motivation for this project is to use design as a means of investigating future practices and to provide the basis for near-term innovation with hobbyist drones. Through this project we are developing use-cases that make strong claims around the current and future uses of drone technologies to aid bottom-up food finding, prototyping...

RTD2015 23 Data Tourism

, Sarah Pennington, Nadine Jarvis, David Cameron, Andy Boucher & William Gaver
We invite the visitors to RTD 2015 to come on
a walking tour with us. Our ‘tourists’ will be given a recent research device developed by our studio, and asked to try it out together. The ‘artefact’ at stake here is not the device, but the walking tour itself. We suggest that, by trying our devices live and in situ, the tour will supplement other means of dissemination such as publications or exhibitions. This will both...

RTD2015 02 Design in the Age of Living Technology

, & John Ward
The creative application of emerging biotechnologies in design has begun to influence how we perceive our material world, boldly suggesting a conceivable balance between the industrialised world and ecological conversation. Embedding humanities practitioners in areas of scientific research, and vice versa, could be key to realising aspects of this utopian ideal. Faber Futures is an on-going collaborative research project that asks if designing with living systems offers a better material paradigm for the design landscape....

The Concept of pq-Functions

Mohamed Elmansour Hassani
In this article we study the concept of pq-functions which should regard as an extension of prior work relating to pq-radial functions. Here, our main aim is to generalize this concept to the field of complex numbers. As direct consequences, new kind of (partial) differential equations, polynomials, series and integrals are derived, and Joukowski function is generalized.

Structured Matrix Completion with Applications to Genomic Data Integration

, &
Matrix completion has attracted significant recent attention in many fields including statistics, applied mathematics, and electrical engineering. Current literature on matrix completion focuses primarily on independent sampling models under which the individual observed entries are sampled independently. Motivated by applications in genomic data integration, we propose a new framework of structured matrix completion (SMC) to treat structured missingness by design. Specifically, our proposed method aims at efficient matrix recovery when a subset of the rows...
