1 TCP/IP Tutorial and Technical Overview - IBM Redbooks
Auteur : IBM Redbooks
Genre : Ordinateurs
With continual advances in hardware and TCP/IP networking capabilities, this very popular book deserves an update. The TCP/IP protocol suite has become the de facto standard for computer communications in today's networked world. The ubiquitous implementation of a specific networking standard has led to an incredible dependence on the applications enabled by it. Today, we use the TCP/IP protocols and the Internet not only for entertainment and information, but to conduct our business by performing transactions, buying and selling products, and delivering services to customers. We are continually extending the set of applications that leverage TCP/IP, thereby driving the need for further infrastructure support.

32 The Age of Living Machines: How Biology Will Build the Next Technology Revolution - Susan Hockfield
Auteur : Susan Hockfield
Genre : Science et nature
From the former president of MIT, the story of the next technology revolution, and how it will change our lives.

A century ago, discoveries in physics came together with engineering to produce an array of astonishing new technologies: radios, telephones, televisions, aircraft, radar, nuclear power, computers, the Internet, and a host of still-evolving digital tools. These technologies so radically reshaped our world that we can no longer conceive of life without them.

Today, the world’s population is projected to rise to well over 9.5 billion by 2050, and we are currently faced with the consequences of producing the energy that fuels, heats, and cools us. With temperatures and sea levels rising, and large portions of the globe plagued with drought, famine, and drug-resistant diseases, we need new technologies to tackle these problems.

How does one begin in the middle? Particularly if one has been forty years in the company of a vision whose lens has moved in different angles but remained steady on one focus. It is now four decades since Confrontation began appearing in public, and while its covers and colors have varied, it has stayed within the text of an eclectic journal. A long time ago I suggested the motto for the magazine--"we specialize in the eclectic." We've remained biased about being ecumenical.

Auteur : Canadian Journal of Regional Science
Genre : Sciences sociales
Introduction * The rural-urban fringe, increasingly replaced in the research terminology by peri-urban fringes, zones or areas, has been a major arena for geographic research, and to a lesser extent, research in the planning field, for over 50 years. From the 1970s in particular, considerable research was undertaken on this zone, focusing on the patterns of change in the context of the then dominant conceptual framework, that of the central city and built-up area, the rural-urban fringe, the outer fringe and the urban shadow. Such research became very popular in Canada, for instance, during and after the 1970s when it was recognized that this zone was a central part of the structure and functioning of urban and metropolitan regional systems. These zones represented and still represent important extensions of the living space of major urban and metropolitan systems--as living environments

CoaguChek point-of-care testing is used widely for prothrombin time (PT) [6] testing in Germany and in The Netherlands and on an increasing scale in the United Kingdom, other European countries, and North America. CoaguChek monitors must give reliable displayed international normalized ratios (INR) within the 2.0-4.5 interval, because there is a dramatic increase in the risk of thrombotic and bleeding complications, respectively, at INR 2.0 and 4.5 (1). Recent reports have reiterated the need for reliable quality assessment (QA) of CoaguChek monitors (2, 3). Hitherto, no readily available system has existed for the local QA of CoaguChek monitors. Local QA is essential because International Sensitivity Index (ISI) calibration of individual monitors by the WHO ISI method (4) is not feasible. This is because of the need in ISI calibration for parallel conventional manual PT testing with the

INTRODUCTION The myleproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) are a closely related group of clonal stem cell hematologic blood disorders characterized by an increase in one or more cell lines of the bone marrow. The proliferation of red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs) or platelets is usually mature in morphology. The MPNs have overlapping clinical features but different etiologies. The original name of these disorders was the myeloid proliferative disorders or MPDs proposed by William Damashek in 1951 ; (1) they were renamed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2008 to "myeloproliferative neoplasms" (2) due to new findings. The 2008 WHO classification of MPNs has added new entities, including chronic myelogenous leukemia, Philadelphia chromosome-positive (CML); chronic neutrophilic leukemia (CNL); polycythemia vera (PV); primary myelofibrosis (PMF); essential thrombocythemia
