The direct cost of zero initialization is surprisingly high: up to 12.7%, with average costs ranging from 2.7 to 4.5% on a high performance virtual machine on IA32 architectures.  ...  Memory safety defends against inadvertent and malicious misuse of memory that may compromise program correctness and security. A critical element of memory safety is zero initialization.  ...  the performance impact of hardware prefetching.  ...

Why Is There Something, Rather Than Nothing? [article]

Sean M. Carroll
2018 arXiv   pre-print
I argue that any attempt to account for the existence of something rather than nothing must ultimately bottom out in a set of brute facts; the universe simply is, without ultimate cause or explanation.  ...  It seems natural to ask why the universe exists at all.  ...  Acknowledgements This research is funded in part by the Walter Burke Institute for Theoretical Physics at Caltech and by DOE grant de-sc0011632.  ...

Open Secret: Why the Supreme Court Has Nothing to Fear From the Internet

Keith J. Bybee
2012 Social Science Research Network  
The understanding of the Court with the greatest delegitimizing potential is the understanding that the justices render decisions on the basis of political preference rather than according to legal principle  ...  I argue that the Court's position is understandable given that the internet age of fluid information and openness has often been heralded in terms that are antithetical to the Court's operations.  ...  1 One way to think about the impact of technology today is to consider the transformation of information.  ...

What is the future of peer review? Why is there fraud in science? Is plagiarism out of control? Why do scientists do bad things? Is it all a case of: "all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing"?

2007 Vascular Health and Risk Management  
Peer review is an essential component of the process that is universally applied prior to the acceptance of a manuscript, grant or other scholarly work.  ...  Most of us willingly accept the responsibilities that come with being a reviewer but how comfortable are we with the process?  ...  The views expressed in this article are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the institutions that employ them.  ...

Does Political Information Matter?

James N. Druckman

After making an argument about why differences in political information matter, I turn to the issue of identifying the underlying causal forces; this discussion offers some insight into why the articles  ...  Why do some citizens know a lot about politics while others know virtually nothing? The last 20 years of research on this question has been paradoxical.  ...  There is little discussion of why the specific measures of knowledge or recall (or the other dependent measures) directly matter in terms of either normative desirability or behavioral consequences.  ...
