Autodesk Inventor is a parametric feature-based solid modeling application. Parameters of all objects are modifiable. To construct a 3D solid model, you think about how to decompose it into features, construct the features one by one, and combine them as you construct them. To construct the solid features, you either make sketches or select a pre-constructed solid feature from the menu. Sketched Solid Features Sketched solid features derive from sketches. There are four basic kinds of sketched solid features: extruded, revolved, loft, and sweep. In addition, there are other kinds of sketched features: coil, rib, and split. Extruded Feature To make an extruded solid feature, you make a sketch and extrude the sketch in a direction perpendicular to the plane of the sketch. (See Figure 2–1.) You extrude the sketch in either direction or from mid-plane. Loft Feature A loft solid feature builds on multiple sketches. It has a variable cross section defined by two or more sketches residing on different sketch planes. To construct a loft solid, you construct two or more sketches on the different sketch planes, and loft from one sketch to another sketch. Figure 2–3 shows a set of sketches and a loft solid constructed from the sketc...
A relatively new PHP framework, but well architected and feels very similar to ASP.NET in some ways. This is one I felt most comfortable with. It is strictly PHP 5 and Object Oriented. It uses a class loader to be as efficient as possible, but isn’t superfast. Fast growing community. Winner: Yii Yii has a strong edge in security, with better access control and protection against XSS, SQL injection, cross-site forgery and cookie hijacking. At this stage I can’t comment on Yii, but I am very tempted to developing at least one project using it. So far I am reasonably impressed by the features it offers. :)  Yii handles code completion perfectly and I can easily press F3 in Eclipse PDT or rightclick Navigation->Go to Declaration in Net Beans PHP to go into the source object and see what’s going on. 1.1 Ajax Yii has jQuery bundled, and it provides a number of useful classes such as autocomplete.  1.2 Test suite The testing support provided by Yii includes unit testing and functional testing. The testing supported provided by Yii requires PHPUnit 3.3+ and Selenium Remote Control 1.0+. http://www.yiiframework.com/doc/guide/form.model#declaring-validation-rules 1.3 Performance http://www.yiiframework.com/performance I've used to be a developer of Symfony, CakePHP, Zend framework, Kohana and Code Igniter, but around 1 year ago I discovered Yii, My first (and second and third) impression was excellent:...

H ypertrophy and recurrent tonsillitis are common indications of tonsillectomy. However, the pathological reports are similar, regardless of clinical aspects. Objective: Search for histopathological changes that differentiate palatine tonsils operated because of hypertrophy vis-à-vis those operated because of recurrent tonsillitis. Method: A prospective cross-sectional descriptive study involving 46 children divided into group I - 22 with hypertrophy; and group II - 24 with recurrent tonsillitis, in the period between 2010 and 2012, in a public hospital. We evaluated clinical and histopathological features (lymph follicles, germinal centers, fibrosis, necrosis, reticulation, infiltration by plasma cells and neutrophils). Results: The patients’ ages ranged between 2 and 11 years (5.17 ± 2.28). In group I, half of the patients had had the latest infection at seven months or more, and all with obstruction degree greater than 3 (≥ 50%). In group II, all had had the latest infection at less than seven months, and most with obstruction degree below 4 (≤ 75%). There was a statistically significant difference in the degree of obstruction (p = 0.0021) and number of germinal centers (p = 0.002) was higher in group I. Conclusion: This study suggests that the number of germinal centers is the only histopathological criterion that can be used to differentiate the two groups.
What is the coverage policy for Anthem Blue Cross members regarding the H1N1 vaccination? Anthem Blue Cross will reimburse for the administration of the H1N1 vaccine for all fully insured members regardless of the individual’s benefit plan and ASO members with self insured employer plans unless the group specifically opts out of covering the vaccine. Additionally, Anthem Blue Cross health plans are waiving deductibles, co-pays and co-insurance for services related to the H1N1 vaccine administration and providing coverage for services regardless of a member’s benefit coverage. How should my practice bill for the H1N1 vaccine and administration service? Please note that effective 9/28/2009, the American Medical Association (AMA) CPT Editorial Panel published a new code specific to administration of the H1N1 vaccine. The newly created CPT code, 90470 should be used to bill the administration of H1N1 immunization. CPT code 90663 is used specifically for the H1N1 vaccine and not for its administration. Since the government is paying for the vaccine, providers do NOT need to bill for this; however, if you choose to use 90663, it should be billed at $0.01 (1 cent) for administrative (non-reimbursable) purposes. The new CPT codes will help to efficiently report and track immunization and counseling services related to the H1N1 vaccine throughout the entire health care system. For administration of both the seasonal flu vaccine and the H1N1 vaccine at the same time, the recommended billing is: 90470 for the H1N1 administration, and for the seasonal flu vaccine administration the appropriate codes from 90466, 90468, 90472 or 90474 based on the individual’s age and CPT coding directions. If the H1N1 vaccine is being administered for two doses and the vaccine administration occurs on different dates of service, please bill each claim using the guidance noted above.
Should you get a prostate cancer screening? Talk with your doctor. You can also learn more at cancer.org/cancer/prostatecancer/index. Symptoms When the prostate gets bigger because of cancer, it can squeeze the urethra. This stops or slows down the flow of urine. This may be a sign of prostate cancer. But other health conditions can cause the same problem, so check with your doctor if this happens to you. The same is true for these prostate cancer symptoms: Frequent urination (especially at night) }} Difficulty urinating }} Pain or burning during urination }} Blood in the urine or semen }} Nagging pain in the back, hips or pelvis }} Painful ejaculation }} Screening for prostate cancer Not all men have symptoms when they have prostate cancer. Routine screenings can be done to find it, but the decision to get a prostate cancer screening is yours. Not all health and medical organizations agree on whether screenings are right for everyone. Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits. Sources: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website: CDC Features: Prostate Cancer (accessed February 2013): cdc.gov.

Much of early Byzantine architecture was built from a continuation of Roman architecture but having influences from the near east and from Greek cultures. The Byzantine Empire was located at the center of the capital of Constantinople. The Byzantine Empire started during the end of the Roman Empire. The empire lasted over a thousand year from the 4th century to 1453. After the death of emperor Theodosius I, the Byzantine Empire had completely separated from the Roman Empire. Being a direct lineage to the Roman Empire, most of the Byzantine Empire’s structures were fabricated from old Roman structures. Some of the most influential architectural systems from the Roman Empire include arches and domes. The Hagia Sophia is a perfect example of Roman influence in Byzantine structures as the dome on top of the Hagia Sophia is very similar to the dome on the Pantheon. Arches from the Roman period are also evident in the Hagia Sophia and in the Basilica of Saint’Apollinare Nuovo. The Byzantine Empire built arenas that were similar to the Coliseum in Rome. They had stadiums just like the Circus Maixmus that was also located in Rome. The Byzantine Empire also used the remains of the Roman aqueducts into their own aqueduct system. The Greeks were very influential throughout history in Roman architectures and later in Byzantine structures. The Byzantines, in an effort to distinguish themselves from the Romans, were more oriented towards Greek culture. Most of the Byzantine Empire were pre-dominantly Greek-speaking rather than Latin-speaking and focused more on Christianity rather than roman paganism. Byzantine scholars concentrated on subjects such as literature, history and philosophy, rather than natural sciences or medicine. Most of the people who traveled through and lived in the Byzantine Empire were Greek or from some other area in the eastern Mediterranean. One of the most influential Greek element found in the Byzantine Empire were the Greek columns. These columns can be found in most of the basilica in the Byzantine Empire such as the basilica of San Vitale. Another Greek architecture found in the Byzantine Empire is the Greek cross plan used in most of the church’s structure. The Byzantine churches also had clerestory which could have been adapted from Greek buildings such as the Parthenon. The Byzantine Empire, however,...
Byzantine Architecture By Colleen Messina In the Dark Ages, one building was so stunning that it was said to be "suspended by a golden chain from heaven." What kind of building would seem so divine? The heavenly building was the church of Hagia Sophia. The historian Procopius said that it seemed suspended from heaven. He was specifically talking about its big concrete dome that seemed to float in space. This church's name meant Divine Wisdom. It was built from 532 to 537 A.D. under the emperor Justinian I. This church was a great example of Byzantine architecture. Roman builders created many great structures. Then Rome fell. The empire split into western and eastern halves. Emperor Justinian I ruled the eastern section of the old Roman Empire. He revolutionized architecture, and he loved to build churches. His empire was called the Byzantine Empire, and its center was Byzantium. This eastern empire lasted for more than 1,000 years. Justinian I gave the job of designing his most important church to an amazing man. Anthemius of Tralles was well-educated. He understood architecture, math, and mechanics. He was also an artistic genius. He decided to do something bold for this special church. Hagia Sophia became his masterpiece. The boldest part of Anthemius' design was a huge central dome. No one had ever built anything like it. The dome's weight was supported by smaller domes that surrounded it. That meant that it had no columns. This made a large, open space inside. It seemed like the dome was floating in space! Anthemius did not realize that his creation would inspire other architects for centuries. This building was called a domed basilica. The bottom section of the building was built in the shape of a cross.
