  • Letter-phoneme alignment is usually generated by a straightforward application of the EM algorithm. We explore several alternative alignment methods that employ phonetics, integer programming, and sets of constraints, and propose a novel approach of refining the EM alignment by aggregation of best alignments. We perform both intrinsic and extrinsic evaluation of the assortment of methods. We show that our proposed EM-Aggregation algorithm leads to the improvement of the state of the art in letter-to-phoneme conversion on several different data sets. ...

Is integrative medicine the same as alternative medicine? How does alternative medicine compare with holistic health? What do all of these practices have in common, and what are their differences? Do they work? Are they safe? The reason most consumers choose to explore alternative approaches to healing is a very simple one: what they’re currently doing isn’t working.

  • Over the past decade covered bonds, or securities issued by financial institutions that are secured by dedicated collateral, have become one of the largest asset classes in the European bond market and an important source of finance for mortgage lending. The collateral, or “cover pool”, is usually put together so as to obtain the highest possible triple-A credit rating. As a consequence, covered bonds offer an alternative to developed country government securities for bond investors interested in only the most highly rated securities.

  • Elevated cell death in human preimplantation embryos is one of the cellu-lar events compromising pregnancy rates after assisted reproductive tech-nology treatments. We therefore explored the molecular pathways regulating cell death at the blastocyst stage in human embryos cultured in vitro. Owing to limited availability of human embryos, these pathways were further characterized in mouse blastocysts.

  • Eph receptor tyrosine kinases regulate many important biological pro-cesses. In the present study, we explored the substrate specificity of the EphA4 receptor tyrosine kinase using peptide arrays. We define a consen-sus substrate motif for EphA4 and go on to identify and test a number of potential EphA4 substrates and map their putative site(s) of phosphoryla-tion.

  • Treebanks, such as the Penn Treebank (PTB), offer a simple approach to obtaining a broad coverage grammar: one can simply read the grammar off the parse trees in the treebank. While such a grammar is easy to obtain, a square-root rate of growth of the rule set with corpus size suggests that the derived grammar is far from complete and that much more treebanked text would be required to obtain a complete grammar, if one exists at some limit. However, we offer an alternative explanation in terms of the underspecification of structures within the treebank. This hypothesis is explored...
