"How Linking Changes the Role of Library Data: Examples from the Wider World" Thomas Baker (Dublin C
By: SWIB Discussion in the W3C Library Linked Data Incubator Group (2010-2011) tended to focus on the benefits of linked-data technology to libraries. This talk explores how library data - datasets, element sets, and value vocabularies - when linked, provide new forms of support to scholarly and cultural communities in the wider world. Well-maintained value vocabularies, their concepts identified by URI and backed by institutional persistence policies, can function as magnets, forming hubs of in

Using Renewable Hybrid Power Systems to Meet Off-Grid Community and Commercial Energy Needs
By: RASEIBoulder Summary: Diesel generators are the traditional means by which people generate electricity in remote locations. Throughout the world, there are many thousands of off-grid communities, industrial sites, and government facilities relying entirely on diesel generated electricity. At $4/gallon, the fuel component alone of diesel-generated electricity is high, about $0.30/kWh. Some remote locations pay over $8/gallon or $0.60/kWh. With diesel fuel prices projected to rise even higher
Multiple Sclerosis - Coordination Exam - Upper Extremities Sub-exam - Patient 16
Shelly is a 38-year-old African American female who initially presented with transverse myelitis 2 years ago. A lumbar puncture revealed multiple oligoclonal bands in the cerebral spinal fluid. MRI has demonstrated numerous plaques in the bilateral cerebral white matter. She eventually went on to recover from her initial attack but since her second attack has continued to progressively worsen. Her gait and other motor functioning have deteriorated and she is now wheelchair bound.

PediNeuroLogic Exam: 3 Month Old: Normal: Reflexes - Deep Tendon Reflexes
One of the main obstacles to obtaining deep tendon reflexes at this age is catching the extremity at rest. Positioning the extremity is also important. As demonstrated in this baby, a crossed adductor can be seen at this age and still be normal but should not persist beyond 7 months of age. A few beats of ankle clonus can be normal in the first few weeks of life but sustained ankle clonus at any age is abnormal. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological exam
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 12 Month Old: Normal: Motor/Coordination - Beads in the Cup
This test is a combination of understanding instructions, as demonstrated, and using a pincer grasp to place the small bead in a container. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.
Mental Status Exam: Anatomy: Occipital Lobes
The occipital lobes are important for perception of visual information. Areas in the inferior temporal visual association cortex are important for recognition of color and shape as well as the recognition of faces. Projections from the occipital lobe to the superior temporal-parietal area are important for perceiving motion of objects. Tests that are used to examine the occipital lobes and its connections include visual fields (see Cranial Nerve 2), naming of objects, naming of colors and recogn
Sensory Exam: Normal Exam: Temperature
Temperature is the other sensory modality that is used to test the spinothalamic system. Tubes or vials of hot and cold water can be used but this is usually impractical. Using a tuning fork, which is normally perceived as cool or cold to the touch, compare between dermatomes and right versus left. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The
