One important extension of the IAD framework has been to the study of local public economies. These are multi-organizational, multi-level arrangements defined as the set of governmental jurisdictions, public and nonprofit agencies, and private firms that interact in various patterns to provide and produce public goods and services within a specific locality or region. Commonly, the localities or regions studied from this perspective have been U.S. metropolitan areas, often defined as a central city and its surrounding or adjoining county. Localities can be delineated, however, on various terms, and in the IAD framework, it is the geo-physical nature of a locality that, in substantial part, drives the analysis. One of the strengths of the approach is its capacity to explain local variations in public organization as a function of the geo-physical diversity of localities, while at the same time developing empirical generalizations and normative principles that apply across diverse regions. What, for example, might the organization and governance of a complex metropolitan area have in common with the organization and governance of a complex protected area, such as the greater Yellowstone eco-region or the Adirondack Park? Construing both sorts of regions as local public economies can enhance our overall understanding of public organization at the same time that it permits a more nuanced understanding of diverse localities. Such work contributes to the ongoing IAD project of "understanding institutional diversity." © 2011 Policy Studies Organization.

We present a simple UV completion of Atomic Dark Matter (aDM) in which heavy right-handed neutrinos decay to induce both dark and lepton number densities. This model addresses several outstanding cosmological problems: the matter/anti-matter asymmetry, the dark matter abundance, the number of light degrees of freedom in the early universe, and the smoothing of small-scale structure. Additionally, this realization of aDM may reconcile the CoGeNT excess with recently published null results and predicts a signal in the CRESST Oxygen band. We also find that, due to unscreened long-range interactions, the residual unrecombined dark ions settle into a diffuse isothermal halo. © 2011 IOP Publishing Ltd and SISSA.

The rapid growth of Twitter has triggered a dramatic increase in spam volume and sophistication. The abuse of certain Twitter components such as "hashtags", "mentions", and shortened URLs enables spammers to operate efficiently. These same features, however, may be a key factor in identifying new spam accounts as shown in previous studies. Our study provides three novel contributions. Firstly, previous studies have approached spam detection as a classification problem, whereas we view it as an anomaly detection problem. Secondly, 95 one-gram features from tweet text were introduced alongside the user information analyzed in previous studies. Finally, to effectively handle the streaming nature of tweets, two stream clustering algorithms, StreamKM++ and DenStream, were modified to facilitate spam identification. Both algorithms clustered normal Twitter users, treating outliers as spammers. Each of these algorithms performed well individually, with StreamKM++ achieving 99% recall and a 6.4% false positive rate; and DenStream producing 99% recall and a 2.8% false positive rate. When used in conjunction, these algorithms reached 100% recall and a 2.2% false positive rate, meaning that our system was able to identify 100% of the spammers in our test while incorrectly detecting only 2.2% of normal users as spammers. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.
