Whether to push or pull? Nicotine reduction and non-combusted alternatives - Two strategies for reducing smoking and improving public health

Tracy T. Smith, Dorothy K. Hatsukami, Neal L. Benowitz, Suzanne M. Colby, F. Joseph McClernon, Andrew A. Strasser, Jennifer W. Tidey, Cassidy M. White, Eric C. Donny
2018 Preventive Medicine  
Second, emerging alternative nicotine delivery systems (ANDS) like electronic cigarettes may provide sufficient nicotine to act as substitutes for cigarettes while delivering much lower levels of toxicants  ...  We argue that the most effective endgame approach is one that pursues both nicotine reduction and alternative nicotine delivery systems as complementary.  ...  Promises, pitfalls, and prognosis of alternative nicotine delivery systems (ANDS) Proponents of ANDS point to the number of smokers who have quit or reduced their smoking using ANDS (Farsalinos et al.  ...

'Push-Me' or 'Pull-You'? An Opportunity for Early Childhood Leadership in the Implementation of Queensland's Early Years Curriculum

Louise Hard, Lyndal O'Gorman
2007 Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood  
Could we see a 'pull-you' of early childhood philosophy rather than a 'push-me' of more formal approaches?  ...  Surrounding this development has been discussion of the potential role of the play-based Early Years Curriculum in shaping the implementation of early primary schooling.  ...  The image of the 'Push-Me-Pull-You' also represents the situating of ECEC stakeholders at a kind of crossroads; a pivotal moment in the history of early childhood delivery in Queensland.  ...

Pull-patching

Espen Jacobsen, Carsten Griwodz, Pål Halvorsen
2010 Proceedings of the international conference on Multimedia - MM '10  
Multicast delivery for video streaming gains credibility with the introduction of commercial IPTV. We therefore revisit patching, a video-on-demand idea from the 1990s.  ...  We have built Pull-Patching, an approach that combines the patching ideas with adaptive segmented HTTP streaming, a unicast technique that is used by most commercial providers of large-scale, true video-on-demand  ...  Similarly, if a packet is lost or damaged during the delivery of the multicast stream, a patch is used for repair of this segment.  ...

Pushing information in the legal environment – useful tool or more spam?

S. Berner
2001 South African Journal of Information Management  
Push technology could be described as sophisticated email (Calvin 1997) . Traditionally, the Internet has worked as a pull system.  ...  Other types of push technology are application distributors which allow software to be distributed to end-users and are meant for information systems people, content aggregators that gather information  ...  , costs, special, incidental, consequential or indirect damages, including damages for loss of profits, loss of business or downtime arising out of or relating to the user's use of the Website.  ...

Information Delivery Systems:An Exploration of Web Pull and Push Technologies

Julie E. Kendall, Kenneth E. Kendall
1999 Communications of the Association for Information Systems  
In this tutorial, we identify and classify eight types of information delivery systems (IDS) that we refer to as alpha, beta, gamma and delta and push technologies.  ...  We also examine the role of the evolutionary agents in push technologies. Throughout the paper, we provide examples of current pull and push technologies in each of the categories for pull and push.  ...  CONCLUSION The term "information delivery systems" or IDS means emerging information technologies including push and pull technologies.  ...

Balancing push and pull for data broadcast

Swarup Acharya, Michael Franklin, Stanley Zdonik
1997 Proceedings of the 1997 ACM SIGMOD international conference on Management of data - SIGMOD '97  
We analyze the scalability and performance of a broadcast-based system that integrates push and pull and study the impact of this integration on both the steady state and warm-up performance of clients  ...  In this paper, we study how to augment the push-only model with a "pull-based" approach of using a backchannel to allow clients to send explicit requests for data to the server.  ...  The authors would like to thank Rafael Alonso for his ideas during the early phases of this work.  ...

A pull-based e-mail architecture

Edson Kageyama, Carlos Maziero, Altair Santin
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '08  
This proposal is inspired from file sharing peer-topeer systems, in which users locate and retrieve the contents they are looking for. A prototype was built to show the feasibility of the proposal.  ...  E-mail systems operate following a "push-based" approach: the sender side server pushes the e-mails it wants to send to the corresponding receivers' servers.  ...  To our knowledge, all systems proposed rely on pushing e-mails to a local server (super-node or local SMTP server), to a remote storage (DHT or remote SMTP server), or directly to the destination nodes  ...
