hardware as it became available. When that didn’t work, they tried to scale existing relational solutions by simplifying their database schema, de-normalizing the schema, relaxing durability and referential integrity, introducing various query caching layers, separating read-only from write-dedicated replicas, and, finally, data partitioning in an attempt to address these new requirements. Although each of these techniques extended the functionality of existing relational technologies, none fundamentally addressed the core limitations, and they all introduced additional overhead and technical tradeoffs. In other words, these were good band-aids but not cures. A major influence on the eventual design of NoSQL databases came from a dramatic shift in IT operations. When the majority of relational database technology was designed, the predominant model for hardware deployments involved buying large servers attached to dedicated storage area networks (SANs). Databases were designed with this model in mind: They expected there to be a single machine with the responsibility of managing the consistent state of the database on that system’s connected storage. In other words, databases managed local data in files and provided as much concurrent access as possible given the machine’s hardware limitations. Replication of data to scale concurrent access across multiple systems was generally unnecessary, as most systems met design goals with a single server and reliability goals with a hot stand-by ready to take over query processing in the event of master failure. Beyond simple failover replication, there were only a few options, and they were all predicated on this same notion of completely consistent centralized data management. Technologies such as two-phase commit and products such as Oracle’s RAC were available, but they were hard to manage, very expensive, and scaled to only a handful of machines. Other solutions available included logical SQL statement-level replication, single-master multi-replica log-based replication, and other home-grown approaches, all of which have serious limitations and generally introduce a lot of administrative and technical overhead. In the end, it was the common architecture and design assumptions underlying most relational databases that failed to address the scalability, latency, and availability requirements of many of the largest sites during the massive growth of the Internet. Given that databases were centralized and generally running on an organization’s most expensive hardware containing its most precious information, it made sense to create an organizational structure that required at least a 1:1 ratio of database administrators to database systems to protect and nurture that investment. This, too, was not easy to scale, was costly, and could slow innovation. A growing number of companies were still hitting the scalability and performance wall even when using the best practices and the most advanced technologies of the time. Database architects had sacrificed many of the most central aspects of a relational database, such as joins and fully consistent data, while introducing many complex and fragile pieces into the operations puzzle. Schema devolved from many interrelated fully expressed tables to something much more like a simple key/value look-up. Deployments of expensive servers were not able to keep up with demand. At this point these companies had taken relational databases so far outside their intended use cases that it was no wonder that they were unable to meet performance requirements. It quickly became clear to them that they could do much better by building something in-house that was tailored to their particular workloads. These in-house custom solutions are the inspiration behind the many NoSQL products we now see on the market.
Our objective was to demonstrate that, despite recognition by both the gastroenterology and headache communities, abdominal migraine (AM) is an under-diagnosed cause of chronic, recurrent, abdominal pain in childhood in the USA. Background.—Chronic, recurrent abdominal pain occurs in 9-15% of all children and adolescents. After exclusion of anatomic, infectious, inﬂammatory, or other metabolic causes, “functional abdominal pain” is the most common diagnosis of chronic, idiopathic, abdominal pain in childhood. Functional abdominal pain is typically categorized into one, or a combination of, the following 4 groups: functional dyspepsia, irritable bowel syndrome, AM, or functional abdominal pain syndrome. International Classiﬁcation of Headache Disorders—(ICHD-2) deﬁnes AM as an idiopathic disorder characterized by attacks of midline, moderate to severe abdominal pain lasting 1-72 hours with vasomotor symptoms, nausea and vomiting, and included AM among the “periodic syndromes of childhood that are precursors for migraine.” Rome III Gastroenterology criteria (2006) separately established diagnostic criteria and conﬁrmed AM as a well-deﬁned cause of recurrent abdominal pain. Methods.—Following institutional review board approval, a retrospective chart review was conducted on patients referred to an academic pediatric gastroenterology practice with the clinical complaint of recurrent abdominal pain. ICHD-2 criteria were applied to identify the subset of children fulﬁlling criteria for AM. Demographics, diagnostic evaluation, treatment regimen and outcomes were collected. Results.—From an initial cohort of 600 children (ages 1-21 years; 59% females) with recurrent abdominal pain, 142 (24%) were excluded on the basis of their ultimate diagnosis. Of the 458 patients meeting inclusion criteria, 1824 total patient ofﬁce visits were reviewed. Three hundred eighty-eight (84.6%) did not meet criteria for AM, 20 (4.4%) met ICHD-2 formal criteria for AM and another 50 (11%) had documentation lacking at least 1 criterion, but were otherwise consistent with AM (probable AM). During the observation period, no children seen in this gastroenterology practice had received a diagnosis of AM. Conclusion.—Among children with chronic, idiopathic, recurrent abdominal pain, AM represents about 4-15%. Given the spectrum of treatment modalities now available for pediatric migraine, increased awareness of cardinal features of AM by pediatricians and pediatric gastroenterologists may result in improved diagnostic accuracy and early institution of both acute and preventative migraine-speciﬁc treatments.

commercial paint, the packaging offers a huge opportunity to positively impact a brand’s image. But what we frequently hear from many business–to–business companies is, “the packaging doesn’t really matter, our customers place their orders via catalog”. Or in other words, they don’t need the package to sell the product on a retail shelf. But selling is only one function that a package offers. In addition to selling, packaging serves four other purposes, all of which influence how a brand is perceived: 1. Brand Identity Expression If a product or brand is a leader in the industry or category, the design of the packaging — from sleek health & beauty products to utilitarian chemical drums — should reflect that position. High quality printing, distinctive design that supports the brand strategy and unique materials can help engage users and differentiate a brand in today’s crowded markets. 2. Relationship Building Packaging is a core part of building a relationship between a brand and the end user, in some cases, long after the sale has been made. For example, packaging for products like toothpaste or commercial office supply products will impact how the brand is perceived every time the product is used. Is it aesthetically pleasing? Does the package make life easier (or more difficult)? A positive user experience can encourage loyalty and even increase the amount end users are willing to pay for a product. 3. Communication Good package design makes information easy to find. If necessary information is difficult to locate, read or otherwise use, the package is likely not living up to the expectation of the end user. Consider commercial cleaning products — the packaging doesn’t need to sell the product on a retail shelf. But it absolutely must communicate (frequently in more than one language) what the product is, how it’s different from other products in the line and how it should be used. Creating an experience with your brand that makes life easier and minimizes frustration will go a long way toward building loyalty. 4. Selling If your products are marketed through consumer channels, you know the package is your last opportunity to convince someone to buy your product. But when it comes to commercial packaging, the role of selling is more subtle — you’re selling the next purchase. If the primary package is one that end users interact with regularly, you have an opportunity to build favorability between your brand and the user every time they use your product. 5. Protection The appearance and condition of a product when it reaches the customer impacts their identityWise® is published by Franke+Fiorella 401 North 3rd Street Suite 380 Minneapolis, MN 55401 612.338.1700 www.frankefiorella.com ©2006, Franke+Fiorella identityWise® is a trademark of Franke+Fiorella.
Harry Potter Goes to Law School Lenora Ledwon "It is our choices, Harry, that show us what we truly are, far more than our abilities." -Professor Dumbledore' Law students read Harry Potter.' They read about him in between reading cases, statutes, codes, and other texts filled with magical words. (Sometimes they read about him instead of reading cases, statutes and codes.) Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry looks very much like a Harvard Law School for wizards, a school where students learn the secrets of magic words of power. Both types of schools offer explicit and implicit lessons about power, its acquisition, and its uses. Education offers student wizards and student lawyers alike the tools to become forces for evil or good in the world. Like all great novels of development, the Harry Potter stories ask one central question, "How shall I live in the world, for good or for ill?" This is an often unspoken question in law school, where concerns about grades, jobs and salaries can all too easily take precedence. Yet, it is one law students must face. What kind of practitioner will I become? Where will I seek the kind of "fierce JOy" that Harry finds in his Seeker role? And, most importantly, what will I choose to do with this power I am acquiring? This chapter explores the implications of the similarities between law school and wizard school by focusing on the topics of: (1) students; (2) professors; (3) studying and exams; and (4) academic culture. 1 conclude that the series of Harry Potter books can be read collectively as one overarching bildungsroman (or novel of development) and that this process of development is very simi1. Chamber of Secrets 333. 2. The Chronicle ofHigher Education, in its periodic surveys of the top ten books being read on college campuses, consistently lists Harry Potter books. My own informal polls of students in my Law and Literature courses confirm that Rawling's books are quite popular arnong law students.
B y J o h n K i l l i n g e r After thousands of pages of Harry Potter’s story, it is clear now that this has been J. K. Rowling’s theme from the beginning: love, friendship, sacrifice, and eventually life. For it is life that springs out of Harry’s gift of himself: the life of self-sacrifice, the life that defeats death, the life of ongoing friendship. F riends. Amigos. Chums. Companions. Mates. Buddies. Jesus did not say lightly to his disciples at the Last Supper, “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends…. I do not call you servants any longer…but I have called you friends” (John 15:13, 15). Scholars think they were celebrating a Jewish friendship meal, one in which men pledged their love and fidelity to one another regardless of what might befall them. In view of what was about to happen, Jesus’ words were extraordinarily charged with meaning and emotion. J. K. Rowling, author of the popular Harry Potter novels, may have had that scene in mind when she began her seventh and final novel of the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, for she set at its beginning an epigram from William Penn, founder of the Quakers: “This is the comfort of friends, that though they may be said to die, yet their friendship and society are, in the best sense, ever present, because immortal.”1 Then she wrote a story that in many ways parallels the death and resurrection of Jesus. I had suspected from the first novel that Harry was actually a Christfigure. He was marked in an early encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort by a lightning-shaped scar on his forehead, and the name for God vouchsafed to Moses, I Am Who I Am, is believed by some to have been derived 60 Friendship from a primitive description of a lightning bolt. Harry’s arrival at his Muggle (that is, nonwizarding) relatives’ home was marked by strange phenomena in the natural world, like those that accompanied the birth of Jesus. Dumbledore and Professor McGonagall, who oversaw his arrival, looked suspiciously like God the Father and Sophia, his female counterpart. At Hogwarts, the wizarding school, Harry fell in with a coterie of very special close friends—Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and Neville Longbottom— If there was any doubt about Harry’s being who often remind us of Jesus’ inner circle of discicreated in the image of Christ, it is surely ples, Peter, James, and John. (Ron is the stubborn, blusdispelled in The Deathly Hallows volume, where tering Peter!) I suggested, therefore, he is repeatedly called “the Chosen One.” in a book called God, the Devil, and Harry Potter, written after the fourth novel had appeared, that Harry would eventually die like Christ.2 And indeed, in the final novel, he does. He dies voluntarily, as Christ did, literally presenting himself to Voldemort for execution. And then, as Christ did, he returns from death, this time to deal a mortal blow to the prince of darkness himself. If there was any doubt about Harry’s being created in the image of Christ, it is surely ...

For those who believe that love is an emotion that should be felt more than displayed, a few words of caution, silence is not always golden, and expressions save the day when feelings are either misunderstood or go unnoticed for a long time.
