• #### [D]urbanism: The revelation of repressed transgression ﻿

(2010)
Detroit lays stunned as the product of abusive parenting. The loyal workhorse of the American Dream wallows in the dedicated obsolescence of an economic monoculture and fiends for the opiate of capitalism. Yet despite the neglect, a new vitality is brewing amongst the shadows of post-fordist residue. Within the labeled obsolescence breeds a new ...
• #### Dagster: Censorship-Resistant Publishing Without Replication ﻿

(2002-07-23)
In this paper we present Dagster, a new censorship-resistant publishing scheme. Unlike previous censorship-resistant schemes, Dagster does not rely on the widespread replication of data and can even be used in a single server setting. It accomplishes this by intertwining'' legitimate and illegitimate data, so that a censor can not remove objectionable ...
• #### Damage-tolerant 3D-printed ceramics via conformal coating ﻿

(2021)
Ceramic materials, despite their high strength and modulus, are limited in many structural applications due to inherent brittleness and low toughness. Nevertheless, ceramic-based structures, in nature, overcome this limitation using bottom-up complex hierarchical assembly of hard ceramic and soft polymer, where ceramics are packaged with tiny fraction ...
• #### Damped Inexact Quasi-Newton Methods ﻿

(1981-12)
The inexact quasi-Newton methods are very attractive methods for large scale optimization since they require only an approximate solution of the linear system of equations for each iteration. To achieve global convergence results, we adjust the step using a backtracking strategy. We discuss the backtracking strategy in detail and show that this ...

• #### Dangerous Crossings: The Links Between Intersections and Crashes in Houston ﻿

(2017)
Traffic accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists have increased both in Houston and nationally in recent years. Coverage of this situation relies mainly on statistics that list the number and possibly the location of crashes. However, this information alone is not enough to help policymakers address this deadly problem. This report identifies ...
• #### Daptomycin Resistance in Enterococci Is Associated with Distinct Alterations of Cell Membrane Phospholipid Content ﻿

(2012)
Background: The lipopeptide antibiotic, daptomycin (DAP) interacts with the bacterial cell membrane (CM). Development of DAP resistance during therapy in a clinical strain of Enterococcus faecalis was associated with mutations in genes encoding enzymes involved in cell envelope homeostasis and phospholipid metabolism. Here we characterized changes ...
• #### Daptomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecalis Diverts the Antibiotic Molecule from the Division Septum and Remodels Cell Membrane Phospholipids ﻿

(2013)
Treatment of multidrug-resistant enterococci has become a challenging clinical problem in hospitals around the world due to the lack of reliable therapeutic options. Daptomycin (DAP), a cell membrane-targeting cationic antimicrobial lipopeptide, is the only antibiotic with in vitro bactericidal activity against vancomycin-resistant enterococci ...
• #### Dark Matter Results from 225 Live Days of XENON100 Data ﻿

(2012-11)
We report on a search for particle dark matter with the XENON100 experiment, operated at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso for 13 months during 2011 and 2012. XENON100 features an ultralow electromagnetic background of ð5:3 0:6Þ 10 3 events=ðkeVee kg dayÞ in the energy region of interest. A blind analysis of 224:6 live days 34 kg ...
