EveryONE

Cancer, the transformation of normal cells into malignant tumor cells, reigns among diseases as one of the leading causes of death around the world. In 2012, cancer claimed 8.2 million lives, and numbers continue to increase each year. While our understanding of cancer is far from complete, we’ve been able to attribute some of the killer’s virulence to increased environmental risk: Increased pollutants and other environmental carcinogens, coupled with an average increase in tobacco and alcohol use and added to a concurrent decrease in daily exercise, cumulatively represent significant risk factors directly related to an increasingly modern world. Ironically, we humans also live a lot longer than we used to, which increases the disease’s chances of occurring. Map of modern Sudan showing the archaeological site of Amara West.

COSMOS Supercomputer - Home

On the 4th of July 2012 the brand new Altix UV2000 system from SGI arrived at DAMTP. The system, which is the largest shared-memory computer in Europe and the first SMP system in the world to be boosted by the Intel Xeon Phi co-processors later in the year, will be used to support research in cosmology, astrophysics and particle physics within the DiRAC distributed HPC Facility, funded by STFC and DBIS UK. COSMOS Mk IX features 1856 Intel Xeon E5 processor cores (SandyBridge-EP) with 14.5TB of globally shared memory. It will also eventually feature 31 Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) co-processors, providing a hybrid hierarchical SMP/MIC computing platform.

Resulting from the Article of the Future project innovations, we are now able to announce the SciVerse ScienceDirect redesigned article page, with a new layout including a navigational pane and an optimized reading middle pane.

- Article of the Future

The Article of the Future project- an ongoing initiative aiming to revolutionize the traditional format of the academic paper in regard to three key elements: presentation, content and context. Learn what we are doing and why by viewing the video below. Last year, we introduced you to the Article of the Future project along with prototypes in 7 scientific areas. To achieve this evolution of the traditional research article, a three-pane article view has been proposed, which separates navigation (left pane) and value-added enhancements (right pane) from the core article (middle pane). Find out more in our About section. The Article of the Future project has realized another milestone with this implementation across all full text articles in SciVerse ScienceDirect.

HOME PAGE - BLACKHEATH PHILOSOPHY FORUM

We will kick off with some political philosophy, exploring why some people fundamentally change their political allegiance and others do not. After that we get into philosophy proper. What are the relations between reason and emotion, and between language and thought? Top publications in Computational Physics. Microsoft Academic Search. Mikhail Prokhorov Foundation.
