The complexity of health promotion research in community settings is ill suited to traditional research designs and methods. The use of community health workers (CHWs) in intervention research is an excellent example of the challenges that arise when traditional research and community intersect. Although the CHW model is becoming popular in health promotion research (Perez & Martinez, 2008; Rhodes, Foley, Zometa, & Bloom, 2007), little attention has been given to understanding and mitigating the challenges of this approach. This article will begin to address the issue by presenting examples of challenges as seen from the perspective of project managers (PMs) and principal investigators (PIs) conducting research with CHWs. Recommendations will alsot be presented for improving the research process, protecting research participants, and maintaining fidelity to a research design when
The role of deliberate practice in the acquisition of expert performance
 Psychological Review
, 1993
"... The theoretical framework presented in this article explains expert performance as the end result of individuals ' prolonged efforts to improve performance while negotiating motivational and external constraints. In most domains of expertise, individuals begin in their childhood a regimen of ef ..."

of effortful activities (deliberate practice) designed to optimize improvement. Individual differences, even among elite performers, are closely related to assessed amounts of deliberate practice. Many characteristics once believed to reflect innate talent are actually the result of intense practice extended
Closedform solution of absolute orientation using unit quaternions
 J. Opt. Soc. Am. A
, 1987
"... Finding the relationship between two coordinate systems using pairs of measurements of the coordinates of a number of points in both systems is a classic photogrammetric task. It finds applications in stereophotogrammetry and in robotics. I present here a closedform solution to the leastsquares pr ..."

A practical guide to support vector classification

The support vector machine (SVM) is a popular classification technique. However, beginners who are not familiar with SVM often get unsatisfactory results since they miss some easy but significant steps. In this guide, we propose a simple procedure which usually gives reasonable results.
A solution to the simultaneous localization and map building (SLAM) problem
 IEEE Transactions on Robotics and Automation
, 2001
"... Abstract—The simultaneous localization and map building (SLAM) problem asks if it is possible for an autonomous vehicle to start in an unknown location in an unknown environment and then to incrementally build a map of this environment while simultaneously using this map to compute absolute vehicle ..."

The underlying structure of the SLAM problem is first elucidated. A proof that the estimated map converges monotonically to a relative
Random Oracles are Practical: A Paradigm for Designing Efficient Protocols
, 1995
"... We argue that the random oracle model  where all parties have access to a public random oracle  provides a bridge between cryptographic theory and cryptographic practice. In the paradigm we suggest, a practical protocol P is produced by first devising and proving correct a protocol P R for the ..."

Making LargeScale Support Vector Machine Learning Practical
, 1998
"... Training a support vector machine (SVM) leads to a quadratic optimization problem with bound constraints and one linear equality constraint. Despite the fact that this type of problem is well understood, there are many issues to be considered in designing an SVM learner. In particular, for large lea ..."
