It Takes Two : Instrumenting the Interaction between In-Memory Databases and Solid-State Drives

Lerner, Alberto ; Kwak, Jaewook ; Lee, Sangjin ; Park, Kibin ; Song, Yong Ho ; Cudré-Mauroux, Philippe

In: CIDR 2020, 10th Conference on Innovative Data Systems Research, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, January 12-15, 2020, Online Proceedings, 2020, p. 1-8

In-memory databases rely on non-volatile storage devices for services such as durability and recovery. SSDs can provide the high-performance these services require. When performance problems occur, however, SSDs offer no mechanism to help analyze them. The only alternative is to instrument the database side of the problem and conjecture about what might be the cause of performance...

A revision of the pelomedusoid turtle Jainemys pisdurensis from the Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) Lameta Formation of India

Joyce, Walter G. ; Bandyopadhyay, Saswati

In: PeerJ, 2020, vol. 8, p. e9330

Background: Jainemys pisdurensis comb. nov. is an extinct pleurodiran turtle from the Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) of India, previously referred to Carteremys and Shweboemys. The holotype, an eroded skull, had been collected near the village of Pisdura, south of Nagpur, in Maharashtra State, while all referred shell material originates from coeval sediments exposed at the nearby village of...

A Three-Dimensional Porous Organic Semiconductor Based on Fully sp2 -Hybridized Graphitic Polymer

Byun, Yearin ; Xie, Lilia S. ; Fritz, Patrick Walter ; Ashirov, Timur ; Dincă, Mircea ; Coskun, Ali

In: Angewandte Chemie International Edition, 2020, vol. 59, no. 35, p. 15166-15170

Dimensionality plays an important role in the charge transport properties of organic semiconductors. Although three‐dimensional semiconductors, such as Si, are common in inorganic materials, imparting electrical conductivity to covalent three‐ dimensional organic polymers is challenging. Now, the synthesis of a three‐ dimensional π‐conjugated porous organic polymer (3D p‐POP) using...

Covalent triazine frameworks incorporating charged polypyrrole channels for high-performance lithium–sulfur batteries

Kim, Jiheon ; Elabd, Ahmed ; Chung, Sung-Yoon ; Coskun, Ali ; Choi, Jang Wook

In: Chemistry of Materials, 2020, vol. 32, no. 10, p. 4185–4193

Organosulfur polymers have emerged as promising electrode materials for lithium– sulfur (Li–S) batteries, mainly because of their ability to incorporate and stabilize high sulfur content. The low ionic and electronic conductivity of these polymers, however, limit their cycling performance at high active mass loadings. Moreover, Li–polysulfide (Li–PS) shuttling, a fatal phenomenon in...

A new species of baenid turtle from the Early Cretaceous Lakota Formation of South Dakota

Joyce, Walter G. ; Rollot, Yann ; Cifelli, Richard L.

In: Fossil Record, 2020, vol. 23, no. 1, p. 1–13

Baenidae is a clade of paracryptodiran turtles known from the late Early Cretaceous to Eocene of North America. The proposed sister-group relationship of Baenidae to Pleurosternidae, a group of turtles known from sediments dated as early as the Late Jurassic, suggests a ghost lineage that crosses the early Early Cretaceous. We here document a new species of paracryptodiran turtle, Lakotemys...

The Korea discount and chaebols

Ducret, Romain ; Isakov, Dušan

(Working Papers SES ; 511)

Finance practitioners frequently claim that stocks of Korean firms are undervalued and trade at a discount relative to foreign firms. This phenomenon is commonly called «the Korea discount». It is based on anecdotal evidence comparing either the price- earnings ratios of different market indexes or those of different individual stocks. This paper provides empirical evidence on the existence...

Advances in porous organic polymers for efficient water capture

Byun, Yearin ; Je, Sang Hyun ; Talapaneni, Siddulu Naidu ; Coskun, Ali

In: Chemistry – A European Journal, 2019, vol. 25, no. 44, p. 10262–10283

Desiccant driven dehumidification for maintaining the proper humidity levels and atmospheric water capture with minimum energy penalty are important aspects in heat pumps, refrigeration, gas and liquid purifications, gas sensing, and clean water production for improved human health and comfort. Water adsorption by using nanoporous materials has emerged as a viable alternative to...

Medicine in the fourth dimension

R.Cederroth, Christopher ; Albrecht, Urs ; Bass, Joseph ; Brown, Steven A. ; Dyhrfjeld-Johnsen, Jonas ; Gachon, Frederic ; Green, Carla B. ; Hastings, Michael H. ; Helfrich-Förster, Charlotte ; B.Hogenesch, John ; Lévi, Francis ; Loudon, Andrew ; B.Lundkvist, Gabriella ; H.Meijer, Johanna ; Rosbash, Michael ; S.Takahashi, Joseph ; Young, Michael ; Canlon, Barbara

The importance of circadian biology has rarely been considered in pre-clinical studies, and even more when translating to the bedside. Circadian biology is becoming a critical factor for improving drug efficacy and diminishing drug toxicity. Indeed, there is emerging evidence showing that some drugs are more effective at nighttime than daytime, whereas for others it is the opposite. This...

Does being assigned to a low school track negatively affect psychological adjustment?

Müller, Christoph Michael ; Hofmann, Verena

In: School Effectiveness and School Improvement, 2016, vol. 27, p. 95-115

Previous research suggests that the 1st year in secondary school for some students goes hand in hand with an increase in adjustment difficulties. One factor that might influence this process on an individual, compositional, and institutional level is the academic track a student attends. It was hypothesized that being assigned to a lowqualifying track predicts a stronger increase in...

Introducing otree_tools : A powerful package to provide process data for attention, multitasking behavior and effort through tracking focus

Chapkovski, Philipp ; Zihlmann, Christian

In: Journal of behavioral and experimental finance, 2019, vol. 23, p. 75-83

With the advent of online subject pools, conducting experiments outside thelaboratory has become more popular among the scientific community. Unlike the lab, online and field environments tend to be accompanied by a loss of control. In this article we introduce otree_tools, a concise yet powerful add-on for oTree (Chen et al., 2016).otree_tools provides novel ways by which to measure...
