The progression steps of a cancer listed on this slide are mostly theoretical. No one has been able to microscopically examine the progression of breast cancer, but observations over time suggest this is the typical progression. Treatment decisions are based on it. However, ductal carcinoma has appeared in lymph nodes when the primary tumor is still microinvasive. Certainly tumors can metastasize before they become palpable—good reasons for getting regular mammograms. There is some doubt that every cancer starts as an in situ lesion. And there is a suspicion that some cancer cells move through sentinel lymph nodes without involving them, and go on to involve other regional nodes. But the sequence of progression on the slide may represent most cancers. Imagine a cancer developing and moving through these steps. At some point, the cancer gets diagnosed and staged. That’s why stage at diagnosis is so important. The stage indicates how far along the path of progression the cancer managed to get before it was identified. The earlier the diagnosis, the lower the stage. Entire public health initiatives have been launched because cancer registry data demonstrated that certain segments of the population were diagnosed at higher stages than average.
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.
The career that I had in mind when I first began college was one in counseling psychology. Luckily, this career was one matched closely to my interests and personality type. Although I’ve begun considering other career avenues, I still chose to research this specific career in depth. A person in counseling psychology will typically use personality tests/assessments, interviews, case histories, and observation methods to evaluate a patients problems, needs, and goals. Counseling psychologists will evaluate data and, from there, create an action plan or treatment plan to counsel the patient with. The goal in this career is to help each patient work toward developing and adjusting social, educational, personal, and vocational skills. I’m most definitely interested in this career. I’ve always had an interest in listening to people and their “problems”. Even in my early teenage years, and now into my adult years, people of all ages have come to me for emotional support, advice, and confidentiality. I’ve wondered what people see in me, but have always been humbled by the trust people place in me. The idea of helping people achieve a happier lifestyle is thrilling to me. The idea of being the person that one person can talk to about anything is very exciting and fulfilling to me; I love the idea of being a problem solver. I see this career as having many advantages and few disadvantages. From a personal standpoint, the biggest disadvantage or problem I foresee is becoming too wrapped up in a patient’s problems. I tend to worry, so this roadblock may be one to consider and learn to overcome.

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.

Returning to his office in San Jose from the Christmas break on 2 January 2007, Richard Palmer, Senior Vice President of Cisco Security Technology Group, was still reflecting on his intense discussions over the past few months with Cisco Corporate Development Group about the ongoing negotiations with Scott Weiss, CEO of privately-held IronPort Systems of San Bruno (California). IronPort was the leading provider of email security solutions, focusing on spam and spyware protection for the enterprise market. By 2007, Cisco was the world leader in networking technology for the internet, having grown from two employees with one product in 1984 to more than 63,000 people, 200 offices worldwide, and 50 product lines. Its product portfolio consisted of several categories: network systems (routers, switches, optical networking), data centre (application networking services, storage networking, data centre switches), collaboration, voice and video (voice and unified communications, video, IPTV, cable and content delivery solutions), mobility/wireless (access points, outdoor wireless, wireless LAN controllers) and security (firewall, virtual private networks, security management). Cisco was also considered to be a best-in-class acquirer of high-tech companies by industry experts as well as corporate strategy practitioners.

The conversion rate is the old war horse of online advertising. It has a strong connection with cost per acquisition and that spells cash. The account manager should be aware of a given account’s foundation rate for conversion. Other figures such as the cost per acquisition will move in the same rhythm as the conversion rate. The base data gives an idea of what conversion rate is, assuming that nothing has played a marked difference on the figures. However, if there is a noticeable change, either over time, or suddenly, to the conversion rate, there may be problems starting to surface that may need correction. Such remedial action should of course check on surface or technical items before going deep into issues that are affecting what is affecting performance. Those corrections can be used to assure good returns elsewhere.
