During the last thirty years of his life, Albert Einstein sought relentlessly for a so-called unified field theory—a theory capable of

principles on which it is based.
One of my clients told me the story of how his wife found him eating his

Specific therapy is ultimately based on in vitro susceptibility testing of the organism(s) isolated from bone or blood. Outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy (OPAT) is appropriate for motivated and medically stable patients and represents a significant advance in management. Antibiotics that require infrequent dosing, such as ceftriaxone, ertapenem, daptomycin, and vancomycin, may facilitate home therapy, but these choices often have an overly broad spectrum of activity.
Most algorithms dedicated to the generation of referential descriptions widely suffer from a fundamental problem: they make too strong assumptions about adjacent processing components, resulting in a limited coordination with their perceptive and linguistics data, that is, the provider for object descriptors and the lexical expression by which the chosen descriptors is ultimately realized.
