Empty Vehicle Redistribution for Personal Rapid Transit

John Lees-Miller
A Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) system uses compact, computer-guided vehicles running on dedicated guideways to carry individuals or small groups directly between pairs of stations. PRT vehicles operate on demand, much like conventional taxis. The empty vehicle redistribution (EVR) problem is to decide when and where to move empty PRT vehicles. These decisions are made in real time by an EVR algorithm. A reactive EVR algorithm moves empty vehicles only in response to known requests;...

Global testicular infarction in the presence of epididymitis: clinical features, appearances on grayscale, color Doppler, and contrast-enhanced sonography, and histologic correlation

, , , Salvador J. Diaz-Cano &
Epididymitis is common, presenting indolently with unilateral scrotal pain and swelling. Diagnosis is based on clinical assessment and resolves with antibiotic therapy. Recognized complications are abscess formation and segmental infarction. Global testicular infarction is rare. Diagnosis is important and requires surgical management. On grayscale sonography, global infarction may be difficult to establish. The addition of color Doppler imaging is useful but is observer experience dependent with limitations in the presence of low flow. Contrast-enhanced sonography...

Meta-analysis of molecular property patterns and filtering of public datasets of antimalarial “hits” and drugs

Antony Williams & Sean Ekins
Neglected infectious diseases such as tuberculosis (TB) and malaria kill millions of people annually and the oral drugs used are subject to resistance requiring the urgent development of new therapeutics. Several groups, including pharmaceutical companies, have made large sets of antimalarial screening hit compounds and the associated bioassay data available for the community to learn from and potentially optimize. We have examined both intrinsic and predicted molecular properties across these datasets and compared them with...

Linked Humanities Data: The Next Frontier?

Albert Meroño-Peñuela, , Laurens Rietveld, Rinke Hoekstra & Stefan Schlobach
This paper discusses the use of Linked Data to harmonize the Dutch censuses (1795-1971). Due to the long period they cover, census data is notoriously difficult to compare, aggregate and query in a uniform fashion. In social history, harmonization is the (manual) process of restructuring, interpreting and correcting original data sources to make a comparison possible. We describe a harmonization methodology based on standard Linked Data principles, illustrate how the size and complexity of the...

Vessel Archives: A Strategic Approach to Existential Risk, Human Survival, and the Future of Earth-Originating Life (Preprint submission version)

Heath Rezabek
Preprint submission version of paper for the 100 Year Starship Symposium Proceedings (2012): Vessel Archives: A Strategic Approach to Existential Risk, Human Survival, and the Future of Earth-Originating Life. Abstract: The abundance of ancient worlds detected by the Kepler Mission and others brings the persistence of the Fermi Paradox into stark relief. If an existential (sterilizing) risk to Earth emerged before an interstellar civilization were established, it could eliminate the prospects for complex life across...

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...

Application of unsymmetrical indirect covariance NMR methods to the computation of the 13C↔15N HSQC-IMPEACH and 13C↔15N HMBC-IMPEACH correlation spectra

Antony Williams, Bruce Hilton, Patrick Irish, Gary E. Martin & Kirill Blinov
Utilization of long-range 1H-15N heteronuclear chemical shift correlation has continually grown in importance since the first applications were reported in 1995. More recently, indirect covariance NMR methods have been introduced followed by the development of unsymmetrical indirect covariance processing methods. The latter technique has been shown to allow the calculation of hyphenated 2D NMR data matrices from more readily acquired non-hyphenated 2D NMR spectra. We recently reported the use of unsymmetrical indirect covariance processing to...


Satara was the capital of Maratha Kingdom spread over 14 lacks square
kilometer. This land has rich heritage. Several great warriors, kings, saints and great
personalities create their historical evidence in the history of Maharashtra. Shivaji the
founder of Maratha Empire had begun to establish himself in the hilly part. The major

Labour Migration is proving beneficial for labourers in course of time, but at
the same time it is laying some adverse impacts on the farmer employers. When the
labourers are moving to urban areas, the local farmers are facing the problems like
shortage of the labourers work, extra payment to the non-migrant and unskilled
labourers and also the delay in completion of the agricultural works.

Clustering can be considered the most important unsupervised learning
technique. Clustering is “the process of organizing objects into groups whose members
are similar in some way”. It is used for simplification, pattern detection and data concept
construction. As clustering is prime component for many scientific and engineering
applications using Data mining, This paper focus on optimizing performance of
clustering using parallelization. Many Clustering algorithms give best performance on
small dataset. But when large dataset will apply then performance will main issue...

Behavioral and neurochemical changes in the zebrafish leopard strain

Caio Maximino, Bruna Puty, Karen Renata Matos Oliveira & Anderson Manoel Herculano
The zebrafish leopard phenotype (leo) displays abnormal pigmentation and shows increased anxiety-like behavior. The neurochemical changes associated with this anxious phenotype are not known. Here, we demonstrate that leo show increased anxiety-like behavior in the light/dark box and in the novel tank test. This anxious phenotype is rescued by acute treatment with a dose of a serotonin reuptake inhibitor, fluoxetine, that is inactive in wild-type animals. Moreover, leoshow decreased tissue levels of serotonin, increased serotonin...
