Processing and transaction concepts for cooperation of engineering workstations and a database serverTheo Härder, Christoph Hübel, Klaus Meyer-Wegener & Bernhard Mitschang
A DBMS kernel architecture is proposed for improved DB support of engineering applications running on a cluster of workstations. Using such an approach, part of the DBMS code - an application-specific layer - is allocated close to the corresponding application on a workstation while the kernel code is executed on a central server. Emperical performance results from DB-based engineering applications are reported to justify the chosen DBMS architecture. The paper focuses on design issues of...

All SPIRAL2 cryomodules (twelve with one quarter wave resonator (QWR) at β=0.07 and seven with two QWRs at β=0.12) have been produced and qualified, and are now in installation phase on the LINAC at GANIL. After a general introduction on the LINAC, we will first remember and compare the different design choices taken for the two families of cryomodules. We will then present a summary of the techniques used for the preparation and integration of...
Rolling Out the Police Single Non-Emergency Number (101): Qualitative Research into the Public and Practitioners' Views, 2012Ecorys & Home Office
In 2010, the Government set out its commitment to establish a national non-emergency police number for England and Wales which would provide a single, memorable non-emergency number for contacting the police (101). <br> <br> This study reviewed the extent to which the 101 service was operating as intended in some of the first forces to implement 101. The study also examined call handling of non-emergency incidents more generally, including public perceptions and expectations of how...

Magnetocaloric properties of Fe-Rh-(Z) (Z = Pd, Ni) alloys from ab initio and Monte Carlo calculations.V. SOKOLOVSKIY, O. PAVLUKHINA, V. BUCHELNIKOV & Et Al.
In this work, we theoretically investigated the magnetic and magnetocaloric properties of Fe-Rh-(Z) (Z = Pd, Ni) alloys by using the ab initio and Monte Carlo approaches. The equilibrium structural and magnetic reference states as well as the magnetic exchange coupling constants for both low- and high-temperature phases were determined by means of first-principles calculations. In order to obtain the temperature dependencies of magnetic and magnetocaloric properties, we used the Potts-Blume-Emery-Griffiths lattice-spin model with parameters...
<div> <p>In the current context of crisis and uncertainty, organizational structures are changing and business processes are more and more decentralized: the rigid top-down organization is abandoned in favor of a new type of hierarchy, based on specialized skills, which implies a need for aggregation and management empowerment. From here, the idea of the author to offer a study of the new executive figure responsibilities and of the legal instrument of delegation, of the powers...
Dobby weaves are decorative structures, which are characterised by small design or geometric figures woven in the fabric structure. Classical methods to diversify dobby weaves can be completed with a series of unconventional methods that derive from mathematics. Theories like fractals, chaos, and cellular automata, applied by CAD, can make easier and more efficient the creation process. The paper presents a CAD application for dobby weaves design (named TexCel) based on Cellular Automata theory, created...
The ability of 11C-Choline and multimodality fusion imaging with integrated PET and contrast-enhanced CT was investigatet to delineate prostate carcinoma within the prostate and differentiate cancer tissue from normal prostate, benign prostate hyperplasia, and focal chronic prostatitis. RESULTS: The SUV of 11C-Choline in PCa tissue was 3.5 +/- 1.3 (mean +/- SD) and significantly higher than that in prostate tissue with benign histopathologic lesions (2.0 +/- 0.6; p<0.001 benign histopathology vs. cancer). A threshold SUV...
The university's 10 year strategic plan charges us to produce 100,000 career-ready graduates. But, what does it mean to be career-ready?Â In 2015, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) released a comprehensive definition of career readiness and related competencies with the goal of providing higher education leaders, policy makers and employers shared language and understanding of the desired learning outcomes for today's college graduate.Â The NACE career readiness competencies are intentionally broad in...
In a famous quote Marx said: “Hegel remarks somewhere that all great world-historic facts and personages appear, so to speak, twice. He forgot to add: the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.” Today one would like to add, that film, television and computer games alter the historic event through modern visualizations of the past. Not only the historic facts and personages appear more than once, but also the representation of history multiplies...
Solothurn, Zentralbibliothek, Cod. S 160 : Composite manuscript for Dominican nuns: Psalter and Canticles, German(:Unav)
This German language composite manuscript probably was created at the Oetenbach Convent of Dominican nuns in Zurich in the beginning of the 15th century. In addition to the liturgical Psalter (for the monastic Liturgy of the Hours, Psalterium feriatum), it also contains the Cantica of the breviary and the Litany of the Saints in German, as well as a prayer. At least since the 17th century, the manuscript has been in the possession of the...
