Developing a New Search for Randomly Accessible Data

There are only two widely-used searches for randomly accessible data: linear search and binary search. I developed and created a new search and tested it against binary search, linear search, and variations of them.

Digital Health: Tracking Physiomes and Activity Using Wearable Biosensors Reveals Useful Health-Related Information

Physiological parameters such as heart rate (HR), blood pressure, and body temperature can provide critical information about the physical health status of a person. Elevation of any of these parameters can be of concern; elevated HR and blood pressure are associated with cardiovascular disease, and elevated body temperature occurs during pathogen infection and inflammation [1–4]. Peripheral capillary oxygen saturation (SpO2) is a measure of oxygen saturation of hemoglobin in the blood, and patients with chronic pulmonary disease often have lower resting SpO2 and are required to use supplementary oxygen to attain a more optimal SpO2

Coevolution and the Effects of Climate Change on Interacting Species

Recent studies suggest that environmental changes may tip the balance between interacting species, leading to the extinction of one or more species. While it is recognized that evolution will play a role in determining how environmental changes directly affect species, the interactions among species force us to consider the coevolutionary responses of species to environmental changes.

Ultrasound for Autonomous Heart Attacks

Every year, half of the 610,000 heart attack deaths in the United States are due to a lack of prompt medical attention. Currently, most technologies fail to fix the problem, as they simply take too long to be able to detect a heart attack in time.

Understanding Patient-Derived Glioblastoma Multiforme Cells’ Proliferation

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and aggressive type of primary brain tumor. Patients with GBM have a median survival of 15 months. Thus, treating GBM can be achieved by inhibiting the proliferation of the patient-derived cells using leaf extract of B. monnieri.

Translational Genomics of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) does not respond to receptor targeted treatments because they do not possess the ligands to bind to these receptors. Thus, more research needs to be explored in terms of the translational modifications that genes undergo during this disease.

Development of rat female genital cortex and control of female puberty by sexual touch

Early analysis of the development of visual cortex by Hubel and Wiesel focused on binocular interactions and showed that both anatomy and physiology of ocular dominance is plastic and shaped in a visually-driven, activity-dependent process [1]. In a similar vein, the development of circuits in the somatosensory cortex (S1) was studied. It was recognized early on that precise topographic (barrel) representation of the whisker pattern in cortical input layer 4 [2] is imposed by peripheral inputs and has an early and brief critical period, after which it can no longer be changed [3].

Ocean Acidification

Ocean acidification is the decrease of the seawater pH level. Ocean acidification effects the chemistry and biology of the oceans. Several things can be directly and indirectly affected. Our community is located near the Bering Sea. The Bering Sea could be affected by ocean acidification in many ways such as the dissolving of marine calcifier’s shells.

Decline of Killer Whales

Killer whales are divided into two classes: the residents and the transients. The central differences between these two types involves their general behavior and diet. Transient groups feed mainly on marine mammals, while resident pods eat mainly fish. Unlike resident killer whales, which travel in large, extended family groups, the transients keep their group sizes small.

Improving Status Quo Rationale to Improve Middle Income Households

This study demonstrates correlation between economic trends and changes in markets. They also show that CAPE downside management is effective in combination with a delay and dynamic asset allocation.
