Information about the localization of cancer from
biopsy specimens is very helpful to plan the manner of resection. Although an experienced
resectionist can remove almost all prostate tissues transurethrally, aggressive resection can
be applied where the cancer was detected by biopsy to achieve the radicality of the
operation. Erectile function was preserved in about 60% of the patients in the present study.
Preservation of the cavernous nerve can be achieved by leaving some prostate tissue not to
be resected around the 4 or 8 o’clock position not to injure the nerve.
We are pleased to present the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. This document is intended to be a primary
source of dietary health information for policymakers, nutrition educators, and health providers. Based on the latest
scientific evidence, the 2005 Dietary Guidelines provides information and advice for choosing a nutritious diet,
maintaining a healthy weight, achieving adequate exercise, and “keeping foods safe” to avoid foodborne illness.
This document is based on the recommendations put forward by the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee.
Some larger businesses and industrial establishments have medical practitioners,
advisors or physicians on site or on payroll. Smaller businesses may not currently staff
In preparing your business continuity plan, it is advisable that you ensure access to a
medical practitioner or advisor for assistance and advice in the event of a pandemic. If
your company already has medical staff on site, they should be made aware of the
nature of the disease, how it is transmitted, its symptoms and health care precautions
available and appropriate.
Insects are associated with a broad diversity of
microorganisms in a variety of symbiotic relationships
including: commensalism, mutualism, and parasitism.
Internal mutualistic organisms are critical to the survival
of the host, such as symbionts, which are found in
mycetocytes and mycetomes of many invertebrate
species. Although mutualistic organisms such as the
protists associated with termites may be abundant in their
insect hosts, they are not by deﬁnition pathogenic to the
Aboriginal Women’s Health Research shall maintain open public access to final reports of
research activities. Reports may be circulated in draft form, Aboriginal community
response at this stage is deemed useful for purposes of revision.
Results of community research shall be distributed as widely as possible within
participating communities, and reasonable efforts shall be made to present results in non
technical language and Aboriginal languages where appropriate.
Identifying the Best Public Land Sites for Development: Domestic oil and gas development,
both onshore and offshore, should take place in the right places to minimize harm to the
environment as well as to public health and safety. Onshore, the Administration has
implemented important reforms that require adequate planning and analysis to identify
potential areas where development is most appropriate. These reforms have taken place while
millions of acres of public land are offered for exploration and production.
Controlled Cooking Test: This lab-based test involves local
cooks preparing a local dish. Adding these variables
limits comparability of results to a given setting but provides
important feedback as to the likely acceptability of a
stove by local users. The results relate to specific
consumption, speed of cooking and user satisfaction.
Kitchen Performance Test: This is the most difficult and
resource-intensive test. It consists of a survey and a fuel
consumption test with families using both the traditional
and the improved cook stove.
Discipline- or Demographic-Specific Groups
Focus on how your organization can connect its artistic product with an audience most likely to
appreciate and value the work. Identify a group/groups of people that would particularly enjoy or
appreciate your organization's artistic product. For example, a group may be looking for a specific artistic
experience, seeking out "innovative presentations of cultural dramas" or "modern dance from around the
Starting in the 1980s, Nobel economist Milton Friedman played
an important role, along with many other economists and public pol-
icy experts, in the development of an index of economic freedom that
would allow researchers to be able to measure the degree to which a
country had a free market economy. Those efforts culminated in the
Fraser Institute’s publication in 1996 of the first edition of Economic
Freedom of the World. There have been 14 more editions published
since then in what is now an annual series.
The legal framework regulating the activities of the
savings banks had previously remained almost
unchanged for 160 years.At the end of the twenti-
eth century, however, the reforms of the years
1983, 1991 and 1999 changed it radically within a
period of only 16 years and gave the savings bank
group a fundamentally new character.
Since the reform of 1999, 34 regional savings banks
and a national bank of the savings banks have been
responsible for running the banking business.
The W3 project merges networked information retrieval and hypertext to make an easy
but powerful global information system. It aims to allow information sharing within
internationally dispersed groups of users, and the creation and dissemination of
information by support groups. W3’s ability to provide implementation-independent
access to data and documentation is ideal for a large HEP collaboration. W3 now defines
the state of the art in networked information retrieval, for user support, resource discovery
and collaborative work.
This paper considers the potentially negative impacts of an increasing
deployment of non-congestion-controlled best-effort
traffic on the Internet.1 These negative impacts range from
extreme unfairness against competing TCP traffic to the potential
for congestion collapse. To promote the inclusion of
end-to-end congestion control in the design of future protocols
using best-effort traffic, we argue that router mechanisms are
needed to identify and restrict the bandwidth of selected highbandwidth
best-effort flows in times of congestion.
These courses stress the importance of animation and modeling principles
while using high-end industry standard software. The curriculum
is under close advisement from industry contacts to ensure students
are equipped with skills and practices that are current. Opportunities
include transfer to a four-year college, transfer to private animation
schools, employment in animation studios, 3D visualization and modeling,
special effects houses, video game industry, the motion picture
industry, and independent animator / filmmaker....
A total of nine individuals participated in either a focus group or individual interview. Both
settings utilized the same questions. All participants are involved in work that aims to improve
access to care for underserved communities, such as interpreter services, training of service
providers, community outreach, and culturally and linguistically appropriate health
promotion/patient education materials. The following section is not a straight-up report of the
focus group and interview data; instead, it integrates ideas and discussion from the author with
CARE has found that VSLAs meet the need for savings and credit at the very bottom rung of the world’s economic
ladder. They create a platform from which the poor can advance to receive the more sophisticated financial services
that they inevitably need as their resources, skills and confidence grow. The next step, therefore, is the linking of
VSLAs to microfinance institutions and banks so that the poorest people in Africa can have access to all of the
financial services that can help them improve their lives.
To take this next step, in 2008 CARE launched an ambitious...
On World Pneumonia Day this year, the
Egyptian Medical Students’ Association
(EMSA), an organization comprised of
dedicated Egyptian medical students and
professionals, began a nationwide “Protect
Your Child” awareness and vaccination
campaign, which aimed to vaccinate
high risk children against pneumonia and
inform the Egyptian population about the
dangers of pneumonia and the risk it poses to their children.

as a vehicle to enhancing child development and building healthy
communities. They offer six recommendations of actions that may
be taken to promote regular and healthy family mealtimes.
There is considerable concern in this country for what has been
