Management of government personal property in the hands of contractors. Handbook for contracting officers and staff  

SciTech Connect

This manual is divided into three parts. Part One applies to the management of Government personal property within the Department of Energy in general terms. Part Two describes the specifics of the application of personal property management techniques to On-Site Contractors. Part three applies to Off-Site Contractors. Part One introduces the field of property management. It discusses: the legal basis and requirements established by Federal Statutes and the parallel authorities and responsibilities; the related evolution of the Department of Energy; the regulation system within the Federal Government and its implementation by the Department for personal property management. The life cycle of equipment is presented and how control over personal property is maintained through an accountability system. Classifications of property and contract clauses are discussed. The relationships of contracting officers and property administrators with contractors are presented in each of the discussions as appropriate. Part One consists of only one chapter and is applicable to the management of property utilized by all types of contractors. It provides the foundation to explore in some detail the actions and interactions that occur between the Department's procurement and property personnel and those of the contractor. This exploration in depth is made in Parts Two and Three.

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Many training, education, and visualization environments would benefit from realistic animated characters. Unfortunately, interfaces for character motion specification are often complex and ill-suited to non-experts. We present a tangible interface for basic character manipulation on planar surfaces. In particular, we focus on interface aspects specific to 2D gross character animation such as path and timing specification. Our approach allows for character manipulation and high-level motion specification through a natural metaphor the figurine. We present an example interface for designing and visualizing strategy in the sport of American football and discuss usability studies of this interface. Key words: tangible interfaces, animation 1

Contamination limits for real and personal property. Progress report for the period January--June 1973  

SciTech Connect

S>During the initial 6 month period of this project, attention was focused on several individual problem areas, primarily through literature searches ond interpretations of the data found. The first was a review of information on the effects of internal radiation doses to the lung with emphasis on the key question of the possible difference in response between a uniformly distributed dose and the same energy delivered to smaller -masses of tissue from radioactive particles. The second involved a study of the soil properties of importance to the transfer to man of radioactive particles and the factors involved in wind erosion with resulting air concentrations. The third was an attempt to better define the many questions arising from mechanisms of transfer involving localized concentrations of plutonium, either from direct disturbance of the soil or from transport of the contamination to other areas. Finally, calculations were made on the air concentrations expected from wind pickup of particles from one contaminated area for comporison with measurements in this area and to further refine the calculational model.

Author manuscript, published in "VRST 2010 (2010)" Reconfigurable Tangible Devices for 3D Virtual Object Manipulation by Single or Multiple Users  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this paper we introduce the concept of a Reconfigurable Tangible Device for manipulation of 3D objects in virtual environments by single or multiple users. This Reconfigurable Tangible Device (RTD) provides points of manipulation rigidly linked together. The shape of the RTD can be reconfigured at any time as its arms can be compressed or stretched by users at will. Due to its simple shape the Reconfigurable Tangible Device can be attached to any 3D virtual object. Then, it can fully define the motion of the virtual object in 6 Degrees of Freedom. Two examples of Reconfigurable Tangible Device were developed: one with three points of manipulation (a reconfigurable triangle) and one with four points. We illustrate how these two simple devices can match many different shapes of 3D objects, and in different contexts. Preliminary testing was conducted with the RTD based on three points of manipulation involving a collaborative manipulation task in virtual reality. It produced better subjective appreciation for the RTD compared to more classical 3D collaborative techniques.

A personal learning apprentice  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Abstract requesting certain types of meetings. In order to be Personalized knowledge-based systems have not yet become widespread, despite their potential for valuable assistance in many daily tasks. This is due, in part, to the high cost of developing and maintaining customized knowledge bases. The construction of personal assistants as learning apprentices-- interactive assistants that learn continually from their users-- is one approach which could dramatically reduce the cost of knowledge-based advisors. We present one such personal learning apprentice, called CAP, which assists in managing a meeting calendar. CAP has been used since June 1991 by a secretary in our work place to manage a faculty members meeting calendar, and is the first instance of a fielded learning apprentice in routine use. This paper describes the organization of CAP, its performance in initial field tests, and more general lessons learned from this effort about learning apprentice systems.

Packet personal radiation monitor  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A personal radiation monitor of the chirper type is provided for detecting ionizing radiation. A battery powered high voltage power supply is used to generate and apply a high voltage bias to a G-M tube radiation sensor. The high voltage is monitored by a low-loss sensing network which generates a feedback signal to control the high voltage power supply such that the high voltage bias is recharged to +500 VDC when the current pulses of the sensor, generated by the detection of ionizing radiatonevents, discharges the high voltage bias to +450 VDC. During the high voltage recharge period an audio transducer is activated to produce an audible ''chirp''. The rate of the ''chirps'' is controlled by the rate at which the high voltage bias is recharged, which is proportional to the radiation field intensity to which the sensor is exposed. The chirp rate sensitivity is set to be approximately 1.5 (chirps/min/MR/hr.). The G-M tube sensor is used in a current sensing mode so that the device does not paralyze in a high radiation field. 2 figs.

Personal Fuel Appliance  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This report summarizes the progress made in Phase I of Stuart's Personal Fueling Appliance Program. Phase I concluded in March 2002 with the demonstration and deployment of several working models. As proposed in the original project plan, working models of the PFA were built to prove feasibility and technically market the concept. Future follow up phases of the project, Phase II and III, will take the concept through prototyping development to pre-production of commercially viable product. The Phase I program successfully demonstrate a home fueling system capable of running on a household circuit, 220V/40 Amp/single phase or equivalent. Connected to a source of ''drinking water'' the system has all the functions necessary to convert water and electricity to high-pressure hydrogen fuel. Pressures of up to 3600 psig were achieved on demonstration systems and higher pressures up to 5000 psig were achieved in the lab. The development program spanned building 3 series of prototypes: White Box (1 unit built 1998), PFA Series 100 (4 units built 1999-2000), and Series 200 (6 units built 2000-02). Advanced in controls and process learned in the PFA program have been embodied in Stuart's larger fuel appliances.

Automated User Modeling for Personalized Digital Libraries  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Digital libraries (DL) have become one of the most typical ways of accessing any kind of digitalized information. Due to this key role, users welcome any improvements on the services they receive from digital libraries. One trend used to improve digital services is through personalization. Up to now, the most common approach for personalization in digital libraries has been user-driven. Nevertheless, the design of efficient personalized services has to be done, at least in part, in an automatic way. In this context, machine learning techniques automate the process of constructing user models. This paper proposes a new approach to construct digital libraries that satisfy users necessity for information: Adaptive Digital Libraries, libraries that automatically learn user preferences and goals and personalize their interaction using this information.

Personal Universal Controllers: Controlling Complex Appliances with . . .  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We envision a future where each person will carry with them a personal universal controller (PUC), a portable computerized device that allows the user to control any appliance within their environment. The PUC has a two-way communication channel with each appliance. It downloads a specification of the appliance's features and then automatically generates an interface for controlling that appliance (graphical, speech, or both). In this demonstration we present a working PUC system that automatically generates graphical and speech interfaces, and controls real appliances, including a shelf stereo and a Sony camcorder.

Performance of Personal Workspace Controls Final Report  

SciTech Connect

One of the key deliverables for the DOE-funded controls research at LBNL for FY04 was the development of a prototype Personal Workspace Control system. The successful development of this system is a critical milestone for the LBNL Lighting Controls Research effort because this system demonstrates how IBECS can add value to today's Task Ambient lighting systems. LBNL has argued that by providing both the occupant and the facilities manager with the ability to precisely control the operation of overhead lighting and all task lighting in a coordinated manner, that task ambient lighting can optimize energy performance and occupant comfort simultaneously [Reference Task Ambient Foundation Document]. The Personal Workspace Control system is the application of IBECS to this important lighting problem. This report discusses the development of the Personal Workspace Control to date including descriptions of the different fixture types that have been converted to IBECS operation and a detailed description of the operation of PWC Scene Controller, which provides the end user with precise control of his task ambient lighting system. The objective, from the Annual Plan, is to demonstrate improvements in efficiency, lighting quality and occupant comfort realized using Personal Workspace Controls (PWC) designed to optimize the delivery of lighting to the individual's workstation regardless of which task-ambient lighting solution is chosen. The PWC will be capable of controlling floor-mounted, desk lamps, furniture-mounted and overhead lighting fixtures from a personal computer and handheld remote. The PWC will use an environmental sensor to automatically monitor illuminance, temperature and occupancy and to appropriately modulate ambient lighting according to daylight availability and to switch off task lighting according to local occupancy. [Adding occupancy control to the system would blunt the historical criticism of occupant-controlled lighting - the tendency of the occupant to leave lights on]. The PWC will be an entirely open networking system in which all manufacturers of task lights, furniture-mounted lighting and ballast manufacturers can participate and have a business position.

Faceted Semantic Search for Personalized Social Search  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Actual social networks (like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, ...) need to deal with vagueness on ontological indeterminacy. In this paper is analyzed the prototyping of a faceted semantic search for personalized social search using the "joint meaning" in a community environment. User researches in a "collaborative" environment defined by folksonomies can be supported by the most common features on the faceted semantic search. A solution for the context-aware personalized search is based on "joint meaning" understood as a joint construal of the creators of the contents and the user of the contents using the faced taxonomy with the Semantic Web. A proof-of concept prototype shows how the proposed methodological approach can also be applied to existing presentation components, built with different languages and/or component technologies.

Energy consumption of personal computer workstations  

SciTech Connect

The explosive growth of the information age has had a profound effect on the appearance of today`s office. Although the telephone still remains an important part of the information exchange and processing system within an office, other electronic devices are now considered required equipment within this environment. This office automation equipment includes facsimile machines, photocopiers, personal computers, printers, modems, and other peripherals. A recent estimate of the installed base indicated that 42 million personal computers and 7.3 million printers are in place, consuming 18.2 billion kWh/yr-and this installed base is growing (Luhn 1992). From a productivity standpoint, it can be argued that this equipment greatly improves the efficiency of those working in the office. But of primary concern to energy system designers, building managers, and electric utilities is the fact that this equipment requires electric energy. Although the impact of each incremental piece of equipment is small, installation of thousands of devices per building has resulted in office automation equipment becoming the major contributor to electric consumption and demand growth in commercial buildings. Personal computers and associated equipment are the dominant part of office automation equipment. In some cases, this electric demand growth has caused office buildings electric and cooling systems to overload.

Studies on persons exposed to plutonium  

SciTech Connect

The results of four studies of persons exposed, or potentially exposed, to plutonium are summarized. The studies are: a five-year update on clinical examinations and health experience of 26 Manhattan District workers heavily exposed at Los Alamos in 1944 to 1945; a 30-year mortality follow-up of 224 white male workers with plutonium body burdens of 10 nCi or more; a review of cancer mortality rates between 1950 and 1969 among Los Alamos County, New Mexico, male residents, all of whom have worked in or have lived within a few kilometers of a major plutonium plant and other nuclear facilities; and a review of cancer incidence rates between 1969 and 1974 in male residents of Los Alamos County. No excess of mortality due to any cause was observed in the 224 male subjects with the highest plutonium exposures at Los Alamos. Clinical examinations of the Manhattan District workers, whose average age in 1976 was 56 years, show them to be active persons with diseases that are not unusual for their ages. The two deaths in this group over the past 30 years have not been due to cancer. Mortality and incidence data indicate no excess of lung cancer in Los Alamos County males.

State of California BOARD OF EQUALIZATION SALES AND USE TAX REGULATIONS Regulation 1573.  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

(a) SALES ORDERED BY STATE COURTS. Tax applies to the sale of tangible personal property by an officer of the court such as a sheriff, commissioner, assignee for the benefit of creditors, executor or administrator (including a bank), or other officer appointed by a court to make the sales if the officer is a retailer with respect to that sale. Generally, an officer is a retailer if he makes three or more sales of tangible personal property for substantial amounts, or a substantial number of sales for relatively small amounts, in any period of 12 months in the conduct or liquidation of a single business or estate. Sales of vehicles required to be registered or subject to identification under the Vehicle Code or of vessels or aircraft are not counted in determining the number of sales for this purpose. An officer is a retailer with respect to every sale of a vehicle required to be registered under the Vehicle Code or subject to identification under Division 16.5 of that code, of a vessel, or of an aircraft. This is true whether or not the officer makes a series of sales of other tangible personal property from the same business or estate. The purchaser of such a vehicle, vessel or aircraft is generally required to pay use tax. (b) FORECLOSURE SALES. Tax does not apply to sales of tangible personal property at public auction pursuant to the provisions of a security agreement if the property is purchased by the secured party who sold the property to the debtor. Tax applies to other foreclosure sales and to other sales by the secured party or the debtor to the same extent as it applies to sales generally. (c) REPOSSESSIONS. Tax does not apply to a repossession of tangible personal property by a seller from a purchaser who has not completed his payments provided the purchaser does not receive an amount from the seller, including the cancellation of the unpaid balance, that is greater than his purchase price.

Energy consumption of personal computer workstations  

SciTech Connect

A field study directly measured the electric demand of 189 personal computer workstations for 1-week intervals, and a survey recorded the connected equipment at 1,846 workstations in six buildings. Each separate workstation component (e.g., computer, monitor, printer, modem, and other peripheral) was individually monitored to obtain detailed electric demand profiles. Other analyses included comparison of nameplate power rating with measured power consumption and the energy savings potential and cost-effectiveness of a controller that automatically turns off computer workstation equipment during inactivity. An important outcome of the work is the development of a standard workstation demand profile and a technique for estimating a whole-building demand profile. Together, these provide a method for transferring this information to utility energy analysts, design engineers, building energy modelers, and others. A life-cycle cost analysis was used to determine the cost-effectiveness of three energy conservation measures: (1) energy awareness education, (2) retrofit power controller installation, and (3) purchase of energy-efficient PCs.

Mood, food, traits, and restraint: an experimental investigation of negative affect, borderline personality, and disordered eating  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Eating disorders and borderline personality disorder involve several overlapping features, such as impulsivity, negative affectivity, and dissociation. However, few studies have specifically assessed how eating pathology and borderline personality may be related. The present study sought to evaluate this relationship by focusing on one particular area of overlap, negative affectivity. A pilot study assessed the psychometric properties of a dietary restraint measure among undergraduate women (N = 149). In the main study, undergraduate women (N = 307) completed a baseline mood assessment, then viewed a 39-minute sad film either with or without concurrent food presentation. Participants then completed a second mood assessment, and those who received food completed a third mood assessment following a 10-minute post-reflection delay. Results suggest that women reporting more borderline features exhibited greater negative affect across three different time points (baseline, post-movie/food, and post-reflection period), and were more reactive to the sad film. Food presentation appeared to have a small tempering effect on sadness, such that individuals who received food reported relatively less sadness after viewing the film when compared to those who did not receive food. However, actual quantity of food consumption was associated with improvements in mood only for women reporting higher levels of borderline features. Finally, highscorers on dietary restraint measures consumed greater quantities of food than their lowscoring counterparts. In sum, these data suggest that women with borderline personality features may be at elevated risk for developing problems with binge-eating, as consuming larger quantities of food appeared to have a tempering effect on their negative mood and specific feelings of sadness. Further, results are consistent with earlier findings in that reported efforts to restrain dietary intake were associated with greater food consumption in response to negative affect, and this relationship may need to be addressed in treating individuals with problematic eating behaviors.

The Personal Container, or Your Life in Bits  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Do you record your digital tracks? Do you know whether anyone else does? Do you know what your contextual footprint is? A key research challenge for our collective digital futures is to enable people to track the information trails that they create as they operate in this, network-connected world. Given this ability, people can start to control how and to whom they expose their data, and how their data is used subsequently. This could significantly impact many businesses, including advertisers, market researchers, and service providers, in at least two directions: imposing control on those whove been able to utilise personal data theyve gathered in a relatively uncontrolled fashion to date; and exposing the richness of personal data to third-parties (both individuals and companies) whove refused to exploit personal

MyLibrary, A Personalization Service for Digital Library Environments  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Several initiatives have offered personalized electronic services for digital library users. However, most of these services do not provide users with personalized shared Web environment, recommender system integration, Web link checking mechanism and tools that extend the functionality of Web browsers. MyLibrary at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) provides digital library users (as individuals or groups) with a personalized Web environment while offering all these features. MyLibrary @LANL is the result of a project sponsored by LANL Research Library, which provides electronic services to LANL users (scientists, students, staff, external users, etc). This article explains the motivations for the design and development of the system, presents an overview of the MyLibrary @LANL initiative, summarizes MyLibrary's features, briefly discusses the technical solutions adopted, describes how the system is perceived by its users and addresses some of the directions for future developments of the product.

Window Properties: measurements, simulations and ratings Window Properties: measurements, simulations and ratings Determining the thermal and optical performance of window systems is essential to researchers striving to develop improved products and to window manufacturers who need to demonstrate the energy performance of their products to architects, engineers, builders, and the general public. LBNL is involved in basic research in this field, in developing software and test procedures to analyze and quantify window heat transfer and optics, and in developing standards and rating procedures. Infrared Laboratory experiments provide surface temperature maps of window products. A companion Traversing System measures air velocity and air temperatures near the surface of test specimens. The MoWiTT facility provides accurate measurements of the heat flow through complete window systems subjected to real weather conditions. MoWiTT results have been used to validate the performance of emerging technologies and research prototypes as well as to validate thermal performance models.

Leveraging Personal Devices for Stronger Password Authentication from Untrusted Computers  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Internet authentication for popular end-user transactions, such as online banking and e-commerce, continues to be dominated by passwords entered through end-user personal computers (PCs). Most users continue to prefer (typically untrusted) PCs over smaller personal devices for actual transactions, due to usability features related to keyboard and screen size. However most such transactions and their existing underlying protocols are vulnerable to attacks including keylogging, phishing, and pharming, which can extract user identity and sensitive account information allowing account access. We propose a simple approach to counter such attacks, which cryptographically separates a users long-term secret input (typically low-entropy password) from the client PC. The latter continues to be used for most of the interaction and computations but has access only to temporary secrets, while the users long-term secret is input through an independent personal trusted device such as a cellphone which makes it available to the PC only after encryption under the intended far-end recipients public key. Our proposal is intended to safeguard passwords from the attacks mentioned above, as well as to provide transaction security to foil session hijacking. To facilitate a comparison to our proposal, we also provide a comprehensive survey of web authentication techniques that use an additional factor of authentication such as a cellphone, PDA (personal digital assistant) or hardware token; this survey may be of independent interest. A proof sketch of MP-Auth using the Protocol Composition Logic (PCL) is also provided.

Breast Cancer and Personal Environmental Risk Factors in Marin County --  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Breast Cancer and Personal Environmental Risk Factors in Marin County -- Breast Cancer and Personal Environmental Risk Factors in Marin County -- Pilot Study Title Breast Cancer and Personal Environmental Risk Factors in Marin County -- Pilot Study Publication Type Report Year of Publication 2003 Authors Erdmann, Christine A., Georgianna Farren, Kimberly Baltzell, Terri Chew, Cynthia Clarkson, Ruth Fleshman, Colin Leary, Mary Mizroch, Fern Orenstein, Marion L. Russell, Virginia Souders-Mason, and Margaret Wrensch Abstract The purpose of the Personal Environmental Risk Factor Study (PERFS) pilot project was to develop methodologies and a questionnaire for a future population-based case-control study to investigate the role of selected environmental exposures in breast cancer development. Identification of etiologically relevant exposures during a period of potential vulnerability proximate to disease onset offers the possibility of clinical disease prevention even when disease initiation may have already occurred many years earlier. Certain personal environmental agents or combinations of agents may influence disease promotion. Therefore, this pilot study focused on exposures that occurred during the ten-year period prior to diagnosis for cases and the last ten years for controls, rather than more historic exposures. For this pilot study, we used a community-based research approach. In our collaborative efforts, community members participated with academic researchers in all phases of the research, including research question identification, study design, development of research tools, development of the human subjects protocol, and report writing. Community member inclusion was based upon the concept that community participation could improve the relevance of scientific studies and ultimate success of the research by encouraging an ongoing dialogue between community members and academic representatives. Early activities of this project focused on the collection of input from the community regarding the possible role of environmental factors in the incidence of breast cancer in Marin County. The intent was to inform the scientists of community concerns, enhance the research team's understanding of the community being studied, and provide interested community members with a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of traditional research methods through active participation in the research process. This pilot study identified specific testable hypotheses through review of the literature and consultation with relevant experts and the affected community. Initially, the study was to focus on modifiable personal environmental exposures that are associated with breast tumor promotion and higher socioeconomic status (SES). However, little information was available in the scientific literature regarding the putative mechanism by which some of the suspected environmental factors may act (i.e., initiator vs. promoter). Likewise, little is known about the distribution of personal environmental risk factors by socioeconomic status. Therefore, tumor promotion involvement and association with SES were not very useful as selection criteria, and selection of topics was based primarily on published scientific findings of human studies and community input. This study was approved by the Institutional Review Boards at the University of California at San Francisco (Committee on Human Research) and at the University of California at Berkeley (Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects)

Personal extrapolation of CDF test beam use to the SSC  

SciTech Connect

The author's personal experience in test beam usage at CDF is used to predict SSC needs at the point of turn-on. It is concluded that the test beam demand will reflect the scale of effort involved in SSC detectors rather than the total number of them. Provision for later expansion is recommended. It is also recommended that the test beam facilities, as well as detector electronics, should reflect the available dynamic range; particularly, a single high energy beam derived from the SSC could be shared by several groups.

Fuel cell systems for personal and portable power applications  

SciTech Connect

Fuel cells are devices that electrochemically convert fuel, usually hydrogen gas, to directly produce electricity. Fuel cells were initially developed for use in the space program to provide electricity and drinking water for astronauts. Fuel cells are under development for use in the automobile industry to power cars and buses with the advantage of lower emissions and higher efficiency than internal combustion engines. Fuel cells also have great potential to be used in portable consumer products like cellular phones and laptop computers, as well as military applications. In fact, any products that use batteries can be powered by fuel cells. In this project, we examine fuel cell system trade-offs between fuel cell type and energy storage/hydrogen production for portable power generation. The types of fuel cells being examined include stored hydrogen PEM (polymer electrolyte), direct methanol fuel cells (DMFC) and indirect methanol fuel cells, where methanol is reformed producing hydrogen. These fuel cells systems can operate at or near ambient conditions, which make them potentially optimal for use in manned personal power applications. The expected power production for these systems is in the range of milliwatts to 500 watts of electrical power for either personal or soldier field use. The fuel cell system trade-offs examine hydrogen storage by metal hydrides, carbon nanotubes, and compressed hydrogen tanks. We examine the weights each system, volume, fuel storage, system costs, system peripherals, power output, and fuel cell feasibility in portable devices.

Results of the Workshop on Microwave-Absorbing Materials for Accelerators (MAMA): A Personal View  

SciTech Connect

The first workshop on the properties and uses of special materials for absorption of microwaves in particle accelerators was held at the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) in Newport News, February 22-24, 1993. The meeting's purpose was to review the advances of ceramic and materials science and to describe the accelerator projects the success of which strongly depends on the existence and availability of microwave-absorbing materials with special characteristics. Scientists from various branches of physics, materials science, microwave engineering, accelerator physics and from national and international laboratories, from universities and industries participated in this gathering. This interdisciplinary meeting brought new people and new ideas together which in the future will bloom into better understanding of general materials and of physical processes and eventually to collaborative efforts to design and produce custom made materials. This paper describes the major topics covered in the workshop and is a personal elaboration of the author on the future possibilities opened by this interaction.

BOBCAT Personal Radiation Detector Field Test and Evaluation Campaign  

SciTech Connect

Following the success of the Anole test of portable detection system, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office organized a test and evaluation campaign for personal radiation detectors (PRDs), also known as Pagers. This test, Bobcat, was conducted from July 17 to August 8, 2006, at the Nevada Test Site. The Bobcat test was designed to evaluate the performance of PRDs under various operational scenarios, such as pedestrian surveying, mobile surveying, cargo container screening, and pedestrian chokepoint monitoring. Under these testing scenarios, many operational characteristics of the PRDs, such as gamma and neutron sensitivities, positive detection and false alarm rates, response delay times, minimum detectable activities, and source localization errors, were analyzed. This paper will present the design, execution, and methodologies used to test this equipment for the DHS.

Opinions of persons from outside the livestock industry on the practice of hot-iron jaw branding as perceived by persons from within Texas livestock show industry  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The purpose of this study was to determine how opinions of persons from outside the livestock industry on the practice of hot-iron jaw branding are perceived by persons from within the Texas livestock show industry. The key-informant interviews conducted revealed interesting findings. The persons interviewed from within the Texas livestock show industry personally did not feel that there was a problem with the practice of hot-iron jaw branding, but they did feel that persons from outside the livestock industry would obtain a negative image of the livestock industry from hearing about or witnessing the practice. The majority of the respondents felt the time for a change had come. The issues which surfaced during every interview centered on more efficient education and good sound reasons for every practice. From within, the livestock show industry must spot and mark for change or justify areas of potential or emerging concern. If a practice can be justified by persons within the livestock industry, it adds validity to the action. If a practice cannot be justified by persons within the livestock industry, the practice should be discontinued. Modern technology now gives us alternatives to hot-iron jaw branding with different perceptions of pain and effectiveness associated with them. Therefore, there is no longer an excuse for using a practice by reasoning that there are no alternatives. Persons from within the Texas livestock show industry perceive that persons from outside the livestock industry would have a negative experience when exposed to the practice of hot-iron jaw branding. If an individual found the practice negative, it could affect future buying choices and some respondents thought it would trigger the individual to continue to discover negative practices. It behooves the Texas livestock show industry to change from the current method of permanent marking at the livestock shows (hot-iron jaw branding) to a method which would be seen as more acceptable to persons from outside the livestock industry. Alternatives which should be considered by livestock shows in Texas include ear tattooing. hoof branding, electronic identification, non-removable eartags, nose printing, nontamperable neck chains, and no permanent marking.

Tcl/Tk for a Personal Digital Assistant  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper reports on the experience of providing Tcl/Tk for the ParcTab, a personal digital assistant built at Xerox PARC. The primary reason for supporting an extension language like Tcl/Tk for a PDA is to supply the same platform-independent infrastructure for user interface design and communication between the PDA and remote applications. The result was that Tcl/Tk enabled rapid prototyping and customization of applications for the Tab, most of which were extensions and interfaces to existing non-Tab applications. In addition, by using a platformindependent extension language, interfaces designed in Tcl/Tk for the Tab are able to be reused on other platforms that provide a Tcl/Tk implementation. The paper starts with a discussion of the decisions made during the process of porting Tk to the ParcTab, which were focused on maintaining the natural look and feel of the Tk widgets while exploiting the small area of the display as much as possible; then includes a description of some app...

Computing Information Value from RDF Graph Properties  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Information value has been implicitly utilized and mostly non-subjectively computed in information retrieval (IR) systems. We explicitly define and compute the value of an information piece as a function of two parameters, the first is the potential semantic impact the target information can subjectively have on its recipient's world-knowledge, and the second parameter is trust in the information source. We model these two parameters as properties of RDF graphs. Two graphs are constructed, a target graph representing the semantics of the target body of information and a context graph representing the context of the consumer of that information. We compute information value subjectively as a function of both potential change to the context graph (impact) and the overlap between the two graphs (trust). Graph change is computed as a graph edit distance measuring the dissimilarity between the context graph before and after the learning of the target graph. A particular application of this subjective information valuation is in the construction of a personalized ranking component in Web search engines. Based on our method, we construct a Web re-ranking system that personalizes the information experience for the information-consumer.

Genome Properties Database  

DOE Data Explorer (OSTI)

The Genome Properties system consists of a suite of "Properties" which are carefully defined attributes of prokaryotic organisms whose status can be described by numerical values or controlled vocabulary terms for individual completely sequenced genomes. Evaluation of these properties may take place via manual curation or by computer algorithms (numerical calculations or rules-based assignment of controlled vocabulary terms). The Genome Properties system has been designed to capture the widest possible range of attributes and currently encompasses taxonomic terms, genometric calculations, metabolic pathways, systems of interacting macromolecular components and quantitative and descriptive experimental observations (phenotypes) from the literature. Wherever possible, Genome Properties are linked to traceable lines of evidence and links are provided to data for any genes which are part of this evidence. The primary source of evidence linking genes to properties is homology modelling using Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) from the TIGRFAMs and Pfam databases.

Mining User Dwell Time for Personalized Web Search Re-Ranking  

SciTech Connect

We propose a personalized re-ranking algorithm through mining user dwell times derived from a user's previously online reading or browsing activities. We acquire document level user dwell times via a customized web browser, from which we then infer conceptword level user dwell times in order to understand a user's personal interest. According to the estimated concept word level user dwell times, our algorithm can estimate a user's potential dwell time over a new document, based on which personalized webpage re-ranking can be carried out. We compare the rankings produced by our algorithm with rankings generated by popular commercial search engines and a recently proposed personalized ranking algorithm. The results clearly show the superiority of our method. In this paper, we propose a new personalized webpage ranking algorithmthrough mining dwell times of a user. We introduce a quantitative model to derive concept word level user dwell times from the observed document level user dwell times. Once we have inferred a user's interest over the set of concept words the user has encountered in previous readings, we can then predict the user's potential dwell time over a new document. Such predicted user dwell time allows us to carry out personalized webpage re-ranking. To explore the effectiveness of our algorithm, we measured the performance of our algorithm under two conditions - one with a relatively limited amount of user dwell time data and the other with a doubled amount. Both evaluation cases put our algorithm for generating personalized webpage rankings to satisfy a user's personal preference ahead of those by Google, Yahoo!, and Bing, as well as a recent personalized webpage ranking algorithm.

Lumino: tangible blocks for tabletop computers based on glass fiber bundles  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Tabletop computers based on diffuse illumination can track fiducial markers placed on the tables surface. In this paper, we demonstrate how to do the same with objects arranged in a three-dimensional structure without modifying the table. We present lumino, a system of building blocks. In addition to a marker, each block contains a glass fiber bundle. The bundle optically guides the light reflected off markers in the higher levels down to the table surface, where the tables built-in camera reads it. While guiding marker images down, the bundle optically scales and rearranges them. It thereby fits the images of an entire vertical arrangement of markers into the horizontal space usually occupied by a single 2D marker. We present six classes of blocks and matching marker designs, each of which is optimized for different requirements. We show three demo applications. One of them is a construction kit that logs and critiques constructions. The presented blocks are unpowered and maintenance-free, keeping larger numbers of blocks manageable.

State of California BOARD OF EQUALIZATION SALES AND USE TAX REGULATIONS Regulation 1583.  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Modular systems furniture is tangible personal property, whether or not affixed to realty. A contract to sell and install modular systems furniture is a contract for the sale of tangible personal property and is not a construction contract. Persons who contract to sell and install modular systems furniture are retailers of the items which they sell and install, and tax applies to the entire contract price less those charges excludable from gross receipts or sales price pursuant to sections 6011 and 6012 of the Revenue and Taxation Code. Retailers who claim a deduction for such charges should maintain complete and detailed records to support the amounts claimed. Such records should include, but not be limited to, a separate accounting of charges for installation labor, such as labor to affix, bolt, fasten, or hardwire panels to realty and labor to fasten or affix fully constructed components to fully constructed panel systems or other components. Charges for fabrication labor, such as labor to attach, assemble, connect, construct, or fabricate panel systems or components, labor to attach or connect one panel to another to form workstations or cubicles, and labor to construct or fabricate the individual panels, components, or accessories are subject to tax. For contracts to sell and install modular systems entered into on or after October 1, 1999, ten percent (10%) of the total contract price, excluding charges attributable to freestanding desks, credenzas, lateral files, bookcases, worktables, returns, convergents, corner units, storage towers, chairs, footrests, and other property not attached to panels, other components, or realty, but including all other charges, will be presumed to be a charge for labor to install or apply the property sold. Retailers may claim the ten percent (10%) labor deduction in lieu of separately accounting for the actual installation charges incurred.

Exploring interests: are there relationships among general interests, reading interests, and personality dimensions?  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This study explored the relationships among high school students general interests, reading interests, and personality dimensions. Two hundred and fifty one 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students in a rural school district in east central Texas completed three questionnaires. General interests were determined by the Strong Interest Explorer, personality dimensions were determined by the Big Five Inventory, and book reading interests were determined by the Reading Interest Rating Scale. The reading interest scores were adjusted for reading ability based on Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) English/Language Arts scale scores. A factor analysis including six general interest variables, five personality variables, and four reading interest variables was conducted. The analysis yielded five factors. Factor 1 had the highest loadings from Hollands general interest types. Factor 2 was dominated by the book categories (Contemporary Fiction, Fact-based Literature, Poetry, and Modern Fantasy). Factors 3, 4, and 5 had the highest loadings from the personality dimensions. Factor 3 included Openness, Factor 4 included Conscientiousness, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism, and Factor 5 included Extraversion. Factor 3, which accounted for 11.67% of the variance, was the only factor where a personality variable (Openness), a general interest variable (Artistic), and a reading interest variable (Modern Fantasy) loaded moderately to highly together. In this particular case alone, teachers may help students select materials that match their personal needs and personalities (Lau & Cheung, 1988) by recommending texts in the modern fantasy genre to those who exhibit openness and value artistic expression. With the exception of Openness, none of the Big Five Personality Dimensions loaded with a book category. There was also only one strong book category and general interest loading. Reading interests appear to be exclusive of general life interests and personality dimensions. Based on the findings, it appears that text-based situational interest is evoked by topics or ideas that are universally appealing (Hidi & Anderson, 1992). Since text-based interest can be controlled by teachers to some degree (Krapp, Hidi, & Renninger, 1992; Schraw, Flowerday, & Lehman, 2001), promoting student independence and choice should broaden students interests and help increase intrinsic motivation to read (Deci, 1992).

Design of a Personalized Lighting Control System Enabled by a Space Model  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper reports on a research effort to develop a prototype of a personalized lighting control system that adjusts the visual environment based on user preferences. Lighting controllers query a space model to retrieve lighting objects that are near given user locations and map user preferences into control actions for these lighting objects. A user scenario illustrates the concept of personalized lighting control. The scenario is used to develop functional and non-functional system requirements which inform system design. The structure of a proposed space model and space model queries are described and illustrated with examples. Implementation environments for system modules and data communication between modules are discussed. System and user tests are outlined that will be performed for initial feedback on the feasibility of personalized lighting control.

SITE SPECIFIC REFERENCE PERSON PARAMETERS AND DERIVED CONCENTRATION STANDARDS FOR THE SAVANNAH RIVER SITE  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The purpose of this report is twofold. The first is to develop a set of behavioral parameters for a reference person specific for the Savannah River Site (SRS) such that the parameters can be used to determine dose to members of the public in compliance with Department of Energy (DOE) Order 458.1 Radiation Protection of the Public and the Environment. A reference person is a hypothetical, gender and age aggregation of human physical and physiological characteristics arrived at by international consensus for the purpose of standardizing radiation dose calculations. DOE O 458.1 states that compliance with the annual dose limit of 100 mrem (1 mSv) to a member of the public may be demonstrated by calculating the dose to the maximally exposed individual (MEI) or to a representative person. Historically, for dose compliance, SRS has used the MEI concept, which uses adult dose coefficients and adult male usage parameters. Beginning with the 2012 annual site environmental report, SRS will be using the representative person concept for dose compliance. The dose to a representative person will be based on 1) the SRS-specific reference person usage parameters at the 95th percentile of appropriate national or regional data, which are documented in this report, 2) the reference person (gender and age averaged) ingestion and inhalation dose coefficients provided in DOE Derived Concentration Technical Standard (DOE-STD-1196-2011), and 3) the external dose coefficients provided in the DC_PAK3 toolbox. The second purpose of this report is to develop SRS-specific derived concentration standards (DCSs) for all applicable food ingestion pathways, ground shine, and water submersion. The DCS is the concentration of a particular radionuclide in water, in air, or on the ground that results in a member of the public receiving 100 mrem (1 mSv) effective dose following continuous exposure for one year. In DOE-STD-1196-2011, DCSs were developed for the ingestion of water, inhalation of air and submersion in air pathways, only. These DCSs are required by DOE O 458.1 to be used at all DOE sites in the design and conduct of radiological environmental protection programs. In this report, DCSs for the following additional pathways were considered and documented: ingestion of meat, dairy, grains, produce (fruits and vegetables), seafood, submersion in water and ground shine. These additional DCSs were developed using the same methods as in DOE-STD-1196-2011 and will be used at SRS, where appropriate, as screening and reference values.

Representation of State Property Systems  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A 'state property system' is the mathematical structure which models an arbitrary physical system by means of its set of states, its set of properties, and a relation of 'actuality of a certain property for a certain state'. We work out a new axiomatization for standard quantum mechanics, starting with the basic notion of state property system, and making use of a generalization of the standard quantum mechanical notion of 'superposition' for state property systems.

Some Particle Properties  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Particle Properties Particle Properties An Article Written Originally for Midlevel Teachers Back A particle, increasing its speed because of some force acting on it, gains energy of motion. An electron (negatively charged) gains one electron volt (eV) of energy in accelerating through a vacuum from the negative end to the positive end of a one-volt battery. The one eV of energy is given up to other particles as the electron crashes into the positive end. A proton (positively charged) traveling from positive to negative pole through the vacuum would also gain one eV of energy and give it up in its collision with particles in the negative end. This proton collision is similar to the proton beam collision with a target at Fermilab, but at Fermilab the proton energy is much greater.

Top Quark Properties  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Since its discovery in 1995 by the CDF and D0 collaborations at the Fermilab Tevatron collider, the top quark has undergone intensive studies. Besides the Tevatron experiments, with the start of the LHC in 2010 a top quark factory started its operation. It is now possible to measure top quark properties simultaneously at four different experiments, namely ATLAS and CMS at LHC and CDF and D0 at Tevatron. Having collected thousands of top quarks each, several top quark properties have been measured precisely, while others are being measured for the first time. In this article, recent measurements of top quark properties from ATLAS, CDF, CMS and D0 are presented, using up to 5.4 fb{sup -1} of integrated luminosity at the Tevatron and 1.1 fb{sup -1} at the LHC. In particular, measurements of the top quark mass, mass difference, foward backward charge asymmetry, t{bar t} spin correlations, the ratio of branching fractions, W helicity, anomalous couplings, color flow and the search for flavor changing neutral currents are discussed.

ELECTROMAGNETIC PROPERTIES OF SUPERCONDUCTORS  

SciTech Connect

A method of calculating the response of superconductors to weak electromagnetic fields is formulated. The response is generated from a single- particle Green's function, defined in the presence of an electromagnetic perturbation, that satisfies the conditions imposed by guauge invariance and charge conservation. The response function is thus itself explicitly gauge invariant and charge conserving. The single-particle Green-s function is obtained by making Gorkov's factorizatation of the tiio-partiele Green's funetion in the presence oi the external field. The sy'mmetry' properties of the approximation are used to simplify the calculatioa. This is trivially' carried out in the London limit. An economieal derivation is thus obtaiaed of Anderson's result thai the Bardeen, Cooper, and Sehrieffer quasi particle excitations must be supplemented by collective excitation in order to satisfy the conservation laws.

Properties of Thermal Glueballs  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the properties of the 0++ glueball at finite temperature using SU(3) quenched lattice QCD. We find a significant thermal effects near T_c. We perform the \\chi^2 fit analyses adopting two Ansaetze for the spectral function, i.e., the conventional narrow-peak Ansatz and an advanced Breit-Wigner Ansatz. The latter is an extension of the former, taking account of the appearance of the thermal width at T>0. We also perform the MEM analysis. These analyses indicate that the thermal effect on the glueball is a significant thermal-width broadening \\Gamma(T_c) \\sim 300 MeV together with a modest reduction in the peak center \\Delta\\omega_0(T_c) \\sim 100 MeV.

Delicious ambiguity? Organizational, interpersonal, and personal communication about spirituality at Hospice  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

While a great deal of theoretical work affirms the importance of spirituality in hospice care, the manner in which organizational members communicate about spirituality in hospice organizations, and most other health care organizations, remains under-explored and under-theorized. The purpose of this dissertation is twofold. First, this dissertation seeks to understand how hospice members talk about spirituality with one another and with care recipients. Second, this dissertation explores the antecedents and consequences of hospice members' communication strategies. To explore these issues, an ethnographic study was conducted in two branches of a mid-sized hospice. Over 200 hours of participant observation and 42 interviews were completed. Results showed that organizational discourse about spirituality was strategically ambiguous in response to multiple internal and external demands. Strategically ambiguous communication was successful in allowing for a wide range of actions and interpretations; however, it was also problematic in that it served as a source of discomfort and disconnection for some organizational members. Further, results demonstrated that communication about spirituality in interactions between care providers and care recipients was influenced by both organizational discourse and personal understandings of spirituality. Organizational and professional discourse and personal understandings created dialectical tensions between leading and following in care provider-care recipient interactions. Further analysis demonstrated five different strategies for managing the leading-following dialectic. Finally, results suggested that organizational discourses affected the personal identity and outcomes experienced by hospice workers. The preferred organizational identity of the "Gracious Servant" required hospice workers to perform spiritual labor which increased the care providers' propensity to experience stress and burnout. In total, these results demonstrate the importance of examining spirituality from an ecological perspective that considers community, organizational, and interpersonal discourse about spirituality.

Study of conditions of use of E-services accessible to visually disabled persons  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The aim of this paper is to determine the expectations that French-speaking disabled persons have for electronic administrative sites (utility). At the same time, it is a matter of identifying the difficulties of use that the manipulation of these E-services poses concretely for blind people (usability) and of evaluating the psychosocial impacts on the way of life of these people with specific needs. We show that the lack of numerical accessibility is likely to accentuate the social exclusion of which these people are victim by establishing a numerical glass ceiling.

The personal computer (PC) programs described in this handbook were adapted from the Tertiary Oil Recovery Information System (TORIS) enhanced oil recovery (EOR) predictive models. The models, both those developed for the Department of Energy and those developed for the National Petroleum Council (NPC), were designed by Scientific Software-Intercomp and were used in the 1984 NPC study on the national potential for enhanced oil recovery. The Department of Energy, Bartlesville Project Office, supported the NPC study and has maintained the models since the study was completed. 10 refs.
