Bayes Factors
, 1995
"... In a 1935 paper, and in his book Theory of Probability, Jeffreys developed a methodology for quantifying the evidence in favor of a scientific theory. The centerpiece was a number, now called the Bayes factor, which is the posterior odds of the null hypothesis when the prior probability on the null ..."

is onehalf. Although there has been much discussion of Bayesian hypothesis testing in the context of criticism of P values, less attention has been given to the Bayes factor as a practical tool of applied statistics. In this paper we review and discuss the uses of Bayes factors in the context of five
An ecological perspective on health promotion programs
 Health Education Quarterly
, 1988
"... During the past 20 years there has been a dramatic increase in societal interest in preventing disability and death in the United States by changing individual behaviors linked to the risk of contracting chronic diseases. This renewed interest in health promotion and disease prevention has not been ..."

not been without its critics. Some critics have accused proponents of lifestyle interventions of promoting a victimblaming ideology by neglecting the importance of social influences on health and disease. This article proposes an ecological model for health promotion which focuses attention on both
The Critical Factors
, 2012
"... Pension fund is a pool of resources contributed by the employees with the aim of having enough resources to carter for their needs after retirement. Therefore, pension fund needs to be invested so as to meet the aim of the contributors. This study was carried out to evaluate the factors that determi ..."

collected were analyzed using factor analysis by principal component. Economic, Risk and Security of real estate factors were identified as the major determinants of pension fund investment. The study concludes that variables such as interest rate, internal control system etc, are not critical
The struggle to govern the commons
 Science
, 2003
"... Human institutions—ways of organizing activities—affect the resilience of the environment. Locally evolved institutional arrangements governed by stable communities and buffered from outside forces have sustained resources successfully for centuries, although they often fail when rapid change occu ..."

occurs. Ideal conditions for governance are increasingly rare. Critical problems, such as transboundary pollution, tropical deforestation, and climate change, are at larger scales and involve nonlocal influences. Promising strategies for addressing these problems include dialogue among interested
Cilk: An Efficient Multithreaded Runtime System
, 1995
"... Cilk (pronounced “silk”) is a Cbased runtime system for multithreaded parallel programming. In this paper, we document the efficiency of the Cilk workstealing scheduler, both empirically and analytically. We show that on real and synthetic applications, the “work” and “critical path ” of a Cilk co ..."

Implementing data cubes efficiently
 In SIGMOD
, 1996
"... Decision support applications involve complex queries on very large databases. Since response times should be small, query optimization is critical. Users typically view the data as multidimensional data cubes. Each cell of the data cube is a view consisting of an aggregation of interest, like total ..."

Combining Branch Predictors
, 1993
"... One of the key factors determining computer performance is the degree to which the implementation can take advantage of instructionlevel parallelism. Perhaps the most critical limit to this parallelism is the presence of conditional branches that determine which instructions need to be executed ne ..."

TUCS On the Density of Critical Factorizations
, 2001
"... We investigate the density of critical positions, that is, the ratio between the number of critical positions and the number of all positions of a word, in infinite sequences of words of index one, that is, the period of which is longer than half of the length of the word. On one hand, we considered ..."

On the other hand, sequences
Partial Words and the Critical Factorization Theorem
 J. Combin. Theory Ser. A
, 2007
"... The study of combinatorics on words, or finite sequences of symbols from a finite alphabet, finds applications in several areas of biology, computer science, mathematics, and physics. Molecular biology, in particular, has stimulated considerable interest in the study of combinatorics on partial word ..."

This paper is devoted to a fundamental result on periods of words, the Critical Factorization Theorem, which states that the period of a word is always locally detectable in at least one position of the word
Technological pedagogical content knowledge: A framework for integrating technology in teacher knowledge.
 Teachers College Record,

Abstract This paper describes a framework for teacher knowledge for technology integration called technological pedagogical content knowledge (originally TPCK, now known as TPACK, or technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge). This framework builds on Lee Shulman's construct of pedagogical c ..."

The paper begins with a brief introduction to the complex, illstructured nature of teaching. The nature of technologies (both analog and digital) is considered
