  • Understanding the long-term patterns of speciation and extinction may help sci- entists answer some of the biggest questions about today’s patterns of bio diver- sity—such as why the tropics are so diverse. David Jablonski, a paleontologist at the University of Chicago, has tackled the question by analyzing the fossil record of bivalves, noting where they were located, how large their ranges became, and how long they endured. Jablonski’s analysis of 3,599 species from the past 11 million years revealed a striking pattern.

  • There are no steadfast rules or Department of State regulations that state that an EFM of a diplomat operating a business for the exclusive use of other diplomats is exempt from local business start-up policies, including registration and paying local taxes. However, since both the owner/operator of the business and all clients or customers have diplomatic status, the logical extension would be that this exemption does exist. Still, be careful in making such an assumption.

  • We discuss the use of social networks in implementing viral marketing strategies. While influence maximization has been studied in this context (see Chapter 24 of [10]), we study revenue maximization, arguably, a more natural objective. In our model, a buyer’s decision to buy an item is influenced by the set of other buyers that own the item and the price at which the item is offered. We focus on algorithmic question of finding revenue maximizing marketing strategies. When the buyers are completely symmetric, we can find the optimal marketing strategy in polynomial time.

  • Films can speak to society as a whole, but they can also be instructive for individual groups. Previous research found that movies featuring substance abuse provide a strong point of identification for addicts (Hirschman & McGriff, 1995; Lalander, 2002).

  • There are two things to note about this algorithm. First, low selectivity filters might cause there to be fewer than one result (on average) per element of the outer loop, though it is in general possible for each tuple to match with more than one predicate. As in any database system with these properties, it is advantageous to apply our filters as close as possible to the data source in a sensor network since this would reduce the total number of data transmis- sions in the network. Second, elements of predicates are independent of each other. Thus, predicates...
