  • The relationship between air pollution and premature mortality is most often studied using time-series analysis of daily observations of the number of deaths and pollution levels. These studies capture the effects of short-term exposure to pollution on the probability of dying. The underlying assumption is that there is a distribution of susceptibility to the effects of air pollution in any population. People who are in a weakened physical state or who have a history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or cardio-pulmonary problems are thought to be the most vulnerable.

  • Wireless networks are being integrated into the modern automobile. The security and privacy implications of such in-car networks, however, have are not well under- stood as their transmissions propagate beyond the con- nes of a car's body. To understand the risks associated with these wireless systems, this paper presents a privacy and security evaluation of wireless Tire Pressure Moni- toring Systems using both laboratory experiments with isolated tire pressure sensor modules and experiments with a complete vehicle system.

In 2005, an outbreak in migratory wild birds in Qinghai Lake, China killed 6000 birds (Normile 2006b).
