The extent or stage of cancer at the time of diagnosis is a key factor that deﬁnes prognosis and is a critical element in deter mining appropriate treatment based on the experience and outcomes of groups of prior patients with similar stage. In addition, accurate staging is necessary to evaluate the results of treatments and clinical trials, to facilitate the exchange and comparison of information among treatment centers, and to serve as a basis for clinical and translational cancer research. At a national and international level, the agreement on classi ﬁcations of cancer cases provides a method of clearly convey ing clinical experience to others without ambiguity. Several cancer staging systems are used worldwide. Dif ferences among these systems stem from the needs and objectives of users in clinical medicine and in population surveillance. The most clinically useful staging system is the tumor node metastasis (TNM) system maintained collabor atively by the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) and the International Union for Cancer Control (UICC). The TNM system classiﬁes cancers by the size and extent of the primary tumor (T), involvement of regional lymph node (N), and the presence or absence of distant metasta ses (M), supplemented in recent years by carefully selected nonanatomic prognostic factors. There is a TNM staging algorithm for cancers of virtually every anatomic site and histology, with the primary exception in this manual being staging of pediatric cancers.
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a neoplastic disease with a continuously growing incidence in Romania and throughout the world. Although the surgery remains the first line treatment for most of the cases, newly discovered targeted molecular therapies – effective for some patients, but with various side effects and significant financial burden for the national health systems – requires not only stratification of patients in prognostic groups but also evaluation of some non-anatomic factors with major impact on the prognosis and therapeutic strategy. The AJCC/UICC TNM staging system, in his 7th revision, effective for cases diagnosed on or after January 1, 2010, responds to these needs. On the other hand, the role of the pathologist is increasing in terms of workload and amount of information to be included in the pathology report in order to deliver a personalized diagnosis. There are concerns worldwide regarding relevance, validity and completeness of pathologic reporting of CRC in the absence of a uniform reporting format. Therefore, suggestions for a standardized pathology report of CRC are made, based on TNM 7 and recent, up-to-date conclusive published data. Keywords: colorectal cancer, TNM 7, pathologic stage, prognostic, reporting.
Today, IT organizations assemble their data center environments from individual components. Their administrators spend significant amounts of time manually accomplishing basic integration tasks rather than focusing on more strategic, proactive initiatives. The industry is in a transition away from the rigid, inflexible platforms that result and moving toward more flexible, integrated, and virtualized environments. The Cisco Unified Computing System™ is a next-generation data center platform that unites compute, network, storage access, and virtualization into a cohesive system designed to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase business agility. The system integrates a low-latency, lossless 10 Gigabit Ethernet unified network fabric with enterprise-class, x86-architecture servers. The system is an integrated, scalable, multichassis platform in which all resources participate in a unified management domain (Figure 1). Figure 1: he Cisco Unified Computing System Integrates Network, Compute, Storage Access, and T Virtualization into a Single Cohesive System The Cisco Unified Computing System is designed to deliver: Innovations Supporting Business Benefits Each of the Cisco Unified Computing System business benefits is supported by a rich set of technical innovations that contribute to this first implementation of the Cisco® unified computing vision. Managed as a single system whether it has one server or hundreds of servers with thousands of virtual machines, the Cisco Unified Computing System decouples scale from complexity. The Cisco Unified Computing System accelerates the delivery of new services simply, reliably, and securely through end-to-end provisioning and migration support for both virtualized and nonvirtualized systems.

Recording events for subsequent investigation, proof of compliance / audit purposes As security risks increase, the need to visually monitor and record events in an organization’s environment has become even more important. Moreover, the value of video surveillance has grown significantly with the introduction of motion, heat, and sound detection sensors as well as sophisticated video analytics. As a result, many nontraditional groups have also found value in video monitoring and recording. In transportation, video surveillance systems monitor traffic congestion. In retail, video can be helpful in identifying customer movement throughout a store, or serve to alert management when the number of checkout lines should be changed. Some video analytics packages even offer the ability to identify a liquid spill and generate an alert enabling faster response by custodial services, thus avoiding a slip and fall situation. Product and package shipment operations can use recorded video to help track and validate the movement of cargo and help to locate lost packages. Additionally, video surveillance can be integrated with and complement access control policies, providing video corroboration of access credential use. Video surveillance has evolved not only in its application, but also in its deployment. This paper reviews the evolution of video surveillance, including the emergence of the fourth generation of video surveillance systems. These systems are realized through an open, standards-based, IP-network-centric functional and management architecture. As a network-centric company, Cisco ®
Cisco began providing electronic support to its business in 1991 using value-added networks (VANs). The first applications offered were software downloads, defects diagnoses, and technical advice. In spring 1994, Cisco moved its system to the Web and named it Cisco Connection Online (CCO). (Not to be confused with Cisco Learning connection, which is related to e-learning at Cisco, see Chapter 5.) By 2004, Cisco’s customers and reseller partners were logging onto Cisco’s website over 2 million times a month to receive technical assistance, place and check orders, or download software. The online service has been so well received that nearly 85 percent of all customer service inquiries and 95 percent of software updates are delivered online. The service is delivered globally in 16 languages. CCO is considered a model for B2B success, and several books have been written about it. Online Ordering by Customers Virtually all of Cisco’s B2B products are made to order. Before CCO, ordering a product was a lengthy, complicated, and error-prone process because it was done by fax or by “snail mail.” Cisco began deploying Web-based commerce tools in July 1995, and within a year its Internet Product Center allowed users to configure and purchase any Cisco product over the Web. Today, a business customer’s engineer can sit down at a PC, configure a product, and find out immediately if there are any errors in the configuration (feedback is given by intelligent agents).
