VISHNU : Document Search Engine : MultiMedia and Information Systems : Knowledge Media Institute : The Open University Overview This is a document search engine with several new visualization front ends that aid navigation through the set of documents returned by a query. Keywords from the document set are identified and selected on the fly. These keywords are then used to compute document clusters. The clusters can be displayed and explored using three visualisations: Sammon cluster view, Dendro map or radial interactive visualization. This link, VISHNU, will open the application in a new browser. Papers M Carey, D Heesch and S Rüger: Info Navigator: A visualization tool for document searching and browsing. Proto-Greek language The Proto-Greek language is the assumed last common ancestor of all known varieties of Greek, including Mycenaean, the classical Greek dialects (Attic-Ionic, Aeolic, Doric and Arcado-Cypriot), and ultimately Koine, Byzantine and modern Greek. Some scholars would include the fragmentary ancient Macedonian language, either as descended from an earlier "Proto-Hellenic" language, or by definition including it among the descendants of Proto-Greek as a Hellenic language and/or a Greek dialect.[1] Proto-Greek would have been spoken in the late 3rd millennium BC, most probably in the Balkans. The unity of Proto-Greek would have ended as Hellenic migrants, speaking the predecessor of the Mycenaean language, entered the Greek peninsula either around the 21st century BC, or in the 17th century BC at the latest.

What Should I do? Noah - ADHD: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Question: Ok so where to begin? I’m a 20 year old college student, and I’m wondering what to do. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was in elementary school, prescribed medicine and took it for years. I finally got sick of being on meds and stopped. I havent been on the medicine for some years now, but I’ve just recently started looking back on my performances in the past year or so. This Disclaimer applies to the Answer Below Dr. Answer: One of the many problems with ADHD is the fact that people do not seem to be aware that medicine alone cannot help those with this disorder. So, what I suggest is that you find the psychologists who are expert in ADHD and who can work with you. When I say that this is an ongoing process, what I mean is that there is no "cure" for ADHD but people can and do learn to cope with it. I am interested that you say that you are creative. Definitely stop using pot as that will only make things worse. Good Luck More "Ask Dr.

Goal: Helping you take evidence-based action Hellenic languages Hellenic is the branch of the Indo-European language family that includes Greek.[3] In traditional classifications, Hellenic consists of Greek alone,[4][5] but some linguists group Greek together with various ancient languages thought to have been closely related or distinguish varieties of Greek that are distinct enough to be considered separate languages.[6][7] Greek and ancient Macedonian A family under the name "Hellenic" has been suggested to group together Greek proper and the ancient Macedonian language, which is barely attested and whose degree of relatedness to Greek is not well known. The suggestion of a "Hellenic" group with two branches, in this context, represents the idea that Macedonian was not simply a dialect within Greek but a "sibling language" outside the group of Greek varieties proper.[6][8] Other approaches include Macedonian as a dialect of Greek proper or as an unclassified Paleo-Balkan language.

Adult Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: A Diagnostics Challenge and Treatment Dilemma Adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has always been a difficult-to-diagnose disorder for clinicians. This is mostly due to the lack of authentic diagnostic tools for adults, as well as because the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition,1 criteria for an ADHD diagnosis require evidence of symptoms present before age 12 years, which is not always known. Although ADHD symptoms were described more than 100 years ago in children, it is only in recent times that the adult form has received appropriate clinical attention; there are now medications approved by the US Food and Drug Administration to treat adult ADHD. In summary, diagnosis of adult ADHD requires a careful history, particularly evidence of social and academic difficulties during childhood. This issue of Psychiatric Annals discusses how to properly diagnose ADHD in adults, as it is truly an ethical dilemma and a diagnostic challenge for many clinicians. References

What is the Semantic Web? Mycenaean Greek Mycenaean Greek is the most ancient attested form of the Greek language, spoken on the Greek mainland, Crete and Cyprus in the 16th to 12th centuries BC, before the hypothesised Dorian invasion which was often cited as the terminus post quem for the coming of the Greek language to Greece. The language is preserved in inscriptions in Linear B, a script first attested on Crete before the 14th century BC. Most instances of these inscriptions are on clay tablets found in Knossos in central Crete, and in Pylos in the southwest of the Peloponnese. Other tablets have been found at Mycenae itself, Tiryns and Thebes and at Chania in Western Crete.[1] The language is named after Mycenae, one of the major centres of Mycenaean Greece. The tablets remained long undeciphered, and every conceivable language was suggested for them, until Michael Ventris deciphered the script in 1952 and by a preponderance of evidence proved the language to be an early form of Greek.
