  1. NPHA Monthly Reports

    Title: NPHA Monthly Reports
    Creator: Lubin, Mark
    Description: Launched in spring 2017, the National Poll on Healthy Aging (NPHA) grew out of a strong interest in aging-related issues among many members of the U-M Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation, which brings together more than 500 faculty who study health, health care and the impacts of health policy. In addition to IHPI and AARP, the poll receives support from Michigan Medicine, the U-M academic medical center. The poll is designed as a recurring, nationally representative household survey of U.S. adults, which allows it to assess topical issues in a timely fashion. Each month (give or take), the NPHA releases a press release, article and other materials with help to elevate the voices of the public, inspire future research, and inform national dialogue in a timely fashion. U-M researchers will also evaluate the poll data for further insights to be shared via academic channels.

    Title: Understanding Ecosystem Services Adoption by Natural Resource Managers and Research Ecologists: Survey Data
    Creator: Schaeffer, Jeff, Engel, Daniel D, Low, Bobbi S, and Evans, Mary Anne
    Description: This dataset was compiled as an attempt to understand how natural resource managers and research ecologists in the Great Lakes region integrate the ecosystem services (ES) paradigm into their work. The following text is the adapted abstract from a thesis associated with this data. Ecosystem services, or the benefits people obtain from ecosystems, have gained much momentum in natural resource management in recent decades as a relatively comprehensive approach to provide quantitative tools for improving decision-making and policy design. However, to date we know little about whether and how natural resource practitioners, from natural resource managers to research ecologists (hereafter managers and ecologist respectively), have adopted the ES paradigm into their respective work. Here, we addressed this knowledge gap by asking managers and ecologists about whether and how they have adopted the ES paradigm into their respective work. First, we surveyed federal, state, provincial and tribal managers in the Great Lakes region about their perception and use of ES as well as the relevance of specific services to their work. Although results indicate that fewer than 31% of the managers said they currently consider economic values of ES, 79% of managers said they would use economic information on ES if they had access to it. Additionally, managers reported that ES-related information was generally inadequate for their resource management needs. We also assessed managers by dividing them into identifiable groups (e.g. managers working in different types of government agencies or administrative levels) to evaluate differential ES integration. Overall, results suggest a desire among managers to transition from considering ES concepts in their management practices to quantifying economic metrics, indicating a need for practical and accessible valuation techniques. Due to a sample of opportunity at the USGS Great Lakes Science Center (GLSC), we also evaluated GLSC research ecologists’ integration of the ES paradigm because they play an important role by contributing requisite ecological knowledge for ES models. Managers and ecologists almost unanimously agreed that it was appropriate to consider ES in resource management and also showed convergence on the high priority ES. However, ecologists appeared to overestimate the adequacy of ES-related information they provide as managers reported the information was inadequate for their needs. This divergence may reflect an underrepresentation of ecological economists in this system who can aid in translating ecological models into estimates of human well-being. As a note, both CSV files in this dataset have two tabs: 1) the raw data, and 2) an index describing each column. The dataset for the research ecologists has had some data removed as it could be considered personally identifiable information due to the small sample size in that population. The surveys associated with both datasets have also been included in PDF format.

  10. The Sharing Economy in Computing: A Systematic Literature Review

    Title: The Sharing Economy in Computing: A Systematic Literature Review
    Creator: Cheng, Hao Fei, Hecht, Brent , Dillahunt, Tawanna R , Wheeler, Earnest, Wang, Xinyi, and Zhu, Haiyi
    Description: The sharing economy has quickly become a very prominent subject of research in the broader computing literature and the in human–computer interaction (HCI) literature more specifically. When other computing research areas have experienced similarly rapid growth (e.g. human computation, eco-feedback technology), early stage literature reviews have proved useful and influential by identifying trends and gaps in the literature of interest and by providing key directions for short- and long-term future work. In this paper, we seek to provide the same benefits with respect to computing research on the sharing economy. Specifically, following the suggested approach of prior computing literature reviews, we conducted a systematic review of sharing economy articles published in the Association for Computing Machinery Digital Library to investigate the state of sharing economy research in computing. We performed this review with two simultaneous foci: a broad focus toward the computing literature more generally and a narrow focus specifically on HCI literature. We collected a total of 112 sharing economy articles published between 2008 and 2017 and through our analysis of these papers, we make two core contributions: (1) an understanding of the computing community’s contributions to our knowledge about the sharing economy, and specifically the role of the HCI community in these contributions (i.e. what has been done) and (2) a discussion of under-explored and unexplored aspects of the sharing economy that can serve as a partial research agenda moving forward (i.e. what is next to do).

    Title: Subjective Effect Reports of Food
    Creator: Schulte, Erica M
    Description: Abstract Objectives The current study investigates which foods may be most implicated in addictive-like eating by examining how nutritionally diverse foods relate to loss of control consumption and various subjective effect reports. Subjective effect reports assess the abuse liabilities of substances and may similarly provide insight into which foods may be reinforcing in a manner that triggers an addictive-like response for some individuals. Design Cross-sectional. Setting Online community. Participants 507 participants (n = 501 used in analyses) recruited through Amazon MTurk. Measurements Participants (n = 501) self-reported how likely they were to experience a loss of control over their consumption of 30 nutritionally diverse foods and rated each food on five subjective effect report questions that assess the abuse liability of substances (liking, pleasure, craving, averseness, intensity). Hierarchical cluster analytic techniques were used to examine how foods grouped together based on each question. Results Highly processed foods, with added fats and/or refined carbohydrates, clustered together and were associated with greater loss of control, liking, pleasure, and craving. The clusters yielded from the subjective effect reports assessing liking, pleasure, and craving were most similar to clusters formed based on loss of control over consumption, whereas the clusters yielded from averseness and intensity did not meaningfully differentiate food items. Conclusion The present work applies methodology used to assess the abuse liability of substances to understand whether foods may vary in their potential to be associated with addictive-like consumption. Highly processed foods (e.g., pizza, chocolate) appear to be most related to an indicator of addictive-like eating (loss of control) and several subjective effect reports (liking, pleasure, craving). Thus, these foods may be particularly reinforcing and capable of triggering an addictive-like response in some individuals. Future research is warranted to understand whether highly processed foods are related to these indicators of abuse liability at a similar magnitude as addictive substances.

    Title: Equilibrium configurations of hard polygons near the melting transition
    Creator: Joshua A. Anderson, James Antonaglia, Jaime A. Millan, Michael Engel, and Sharon C. Glotzer
    Description: This dataset was generated for our work "Shape and symmetry determine two-dimensional melting transitions of hard regular polygons". The dataset includes simulation results for 13 different polygons (equilateral triangles through regular tetradecagons and the 4-fold pentille) at a variety of packing fractions near the isotropic fluid to solid phase transition. Each trajectory contains the final 4 frames of each simulation run we conducted at system sizes of over one million particles. For each shape, there is a JSON file that describes the vertices of the polygon and a number of simulation trajectory files in GSD (https://bitbucket.org/glotzer/gsd) format. The trajectory files contain the positions and orientations of all the polygons at each frame, along with the simulation box size. The trajectory file names identify the packing fraction of that simulation run.

    Creator: Steiner, A.L.
    Description: Land and water body surfaces play a critical role in hydroclimate by driving the transfer of moisture from the surface reservoir into the atmosphere. At the same time, atmospheric circulation transports moisture into and out of regions. To date, the hydroclimate impacts of the surface relative to large-scale transport and the variability over land and lake surfaces have not been quantified for the Great Lakes region despite known impacts of the lakes on the local climate. Using a Regional Climate Model (RegCM4) driven by three different boundary conditions, we simulate the hydroclimate of the Great Lakes region for a 23-year historical period. Observations and reanalysis products define land-lake-atmosphere feedbacks and are compared with the model. Reanalyses estimate up to 85% of the local precipitation is transported into the region from external sources. Seasonal RegCM4 precipitation biases reflect the biases in advective moisture flux, which depend on synoptic weather patterns such as the placement of troughs and ridges. In contrast with external sources, the land and lake surfaces account for over 30% of summer precipitation. However, RegCM4 underestimates the contribution of the land by 40% due to low evaporation rates as compared to the reanalyses. Observations at three flux towers indicate that evaporation and its drivers vary strongly by vegetation species, yet the lumped land cover description prescribed in the model neglects secondary species. Such species in the Great Lakes region have high evaporation potentials, and their absence in the model may account for the evaporation discrepancies. This highlights the need for greater complexity in the land cover classifications used in regional climate models to better capture land-atmosphere hydroclimate feedbacks. Over the lakes, one model member overestimates convective precipitation caused by enhanced evaporation under warm lake surface temperatures, highlighting the need for accurate representation of lake temperatures in the surface boundary condition. While external moisture sources dominate precipitation patterns, we conclude that the surface plays a substantial role in modifying regional hydroclimate.

    Title: Three-Dimensional Body Shape Manikins of Young Children for Child Restraint Design
    Creator: Jones, Monica L.H.
    Description: These manikins represent body shape models for children weighing 9 to 23 kg in a seated posture relevant to child restraint design. The design of child restraints is guided in part by anthropometric data describing the distributions of body dimensions of children. However, three-dimensional body shape data have not been available for children younger than three years of age. These manikins will be useful for assessing child accommodation in restraints. The SBSM can also provide guidance for the development of anthropomorphic test devices and computational models of child occupants. The sampled manikins were predicted for a range of torso length and body weight dimensions. The SBSM model was exercised for two torso lengths and nine body weights to obtain 18 body shapes. The 3D shape models can be downloaded in a standard mesh format (PLY). Each body shape is accompanied by predicted landmark locations and standard anthropometric variables.

    Title: A Video-Based Intervention to Improve Belt Fit
    Creator: Jones, Monica L.H.
    Description: This study evaluated the performance of a video-based intervention for improving the belt fit obtained by drivers. Previous laboratory studies have demonstrated that some drivers position their seat belts suboptimally. Specifically, the lap portion of the belt may be higher and farther forward relative to the pelvis than best practice, and the shoulder portion of the belt may be outboard or inboard of mid-shoulder. A video was developed to present the most important aspects of belt fit best practices, with emphasis on the lap belt. The video demonstrated how a seat belt should be routed with respect to an individual’s anatomy to ensure a proper fit. The three key belt fit concepts conveyed in the video were: 1) Lap belt low on hips, touching the thighs. 2) Shoulder belt crossing middle of collarbone. 3) Belt snug, as close to bones as possible. Additional context about the ability to achieve to good belt fit, such as opening a heavy coat or adjusting the height adjusters on the B-pillar behind the windows, were also presented.

    Creator: Huang, Ming, Wen, Fei, Larson, Ronald G., and Huang, Wenjun
    Description: We provide the parameters used in Umbrella Sampling simulations reported in our study "Efficient Estimation of Binding Free Energies between Peptides and an MHC Class II Molecule Using Coarse-Grained Molecular Dynamics Simulations with a Weighted Histogram Analysis Method", namely the set positions and spring constants for each window in simulations. Two tables are provided. Table 1 lists the names of the peptides and their corresponding sequences. Table 2 lists the parameters. The abstract of our work is the following: We estimate the binding free energy between peptides and an MHC class II molecule using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations with Weighted Histogram Analysis Method (WHAM). We show that, owing to its more thorough sampling in the available computational time, the binding free energy obtained by pulling the whole peptide using a coarse-grained (CG) force field (MARTINI) is less prone to significant error induced by biased-sampling than using an atomistic force field (AMBER). We further demonstrate that using CG MD to pull 3-4 residue peptide segments while leaving the remain-ing peptide segments in the binding groove and adding up the binding free energies of all peptide segments gives robust binding free energy estimations, which are in good agreement with the experimentally measured binding affinities for the peptide sequences studied. Our approach thus provides a promising and computationally efficient way to rapidly and relia-bly estimate the binding free energy between an arbitrary peptide and an MHC class II molecule.

    Work
    Title: Growth factor signaling to mTORC1 by amino acid–laden macropinosomes
    Creator: Yoshida, Sei and Swanson, Joel A
    Description: The rapid activation of the mechanistic target of rapamycin complex-1 (mTORC1) by growth factors is increased by extracellular amino acids through yet-undefined mechanisms of amino acid transfer into endolysosomes. Because the endocytic process of macropinocytosis concentrates extracellular solutes into endolysosomes and is increased in cells stimulated by growth factors or tumor-promoting phorbol esters, we analyzed its role in amino acid–dependent activation of mTORC1. Here, we show that growth factor-dependent activation of mTORC1 by amino acids, but not glucose, requires macropinocytosis. In murine bone marrow–derived macrophages and murine embryonic fibroblasts stimulated with their cognate growth factors or with phorbol myristate acetate, activation of mTORC1 required an Akt-independent vesicular pathway of amino acid delivery into endolysosomes, mediated by the actin cytoskeleton. Macropinocytosis delivered small, fluorescent fluid-phase solutes into endolysosomes sufficiently fast to explain growth factor–mediated signaling by amino acids. Therefore, the amino acid–laden macropinosome is an essential and discrete unit of growth factor receptor signaling to mTORC1

If you use the data, please cite the following reference in your publications related to this work: Grace Tsai and Benjamin Kuipers Dynamic Visual Understanding of the Local Environment for an Indoor Navigating Robot International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS'12) October 2012 The dataset contains 4 video sequences acquired with camera mounted on a wheeled vehicle. The camera was set-up so that there was zero tilt and roll angle with respect to the ground. The camera has a fixed height (0.47 m) with the ground throughout the video. The intrinsic parameters of the cameras are: Focal length fc = [ 1389.182714 1394.598277 ] Principal point cc = [ 672.605430 387.235803 ] The distortion of the camera has been corrected. For each video sequences, an estimated camera pose in each frame of the video is provided in the file pose.txt. Each line in the file looks like: <frame index> <x (pose)> <y (pose)> <theta (pose)> Note the camera poses provided here are estimated by using an occupancy grid mapping algorithm with a laser range finder to obtain the robot pose. The dataset provides a ground truth labeling for all the pixels every 10 frames for each video. The labels of each frame is stored as a 2D matrix in a .mat file. The filename of each .mat file corresponds to the image frame. The labels can be interpreted as followed: -2 -> ceiling plane -1 -> ground plane >0 -> walls The labels of the walls are illustrated in a .pdf figure. Note the figure is only a illustration graph, not an actual floor plan.
