What is gestational diabetes? Gestational diabetes (pronounced jess-TAY-shun-ul die-uh-BEET-eez) is a type of high blood sugar that only pregnant women get. In fact, the word “gestational” means pregnant. If a woman gets high blood sugar when she’s pregnant, but she never had high blood sugar before, she has gestational diabetes. Between 2 percent and 10 percent of U.S. pregnancies are affected by the condition every year,1 making it one of the top health concerns related to pregnancy. If not treated, gestational diabetes can cause problems for mothers and babies, some of them serious. But there is good news. Most of the time, gestational diabetes goes away after the baby is born. The changes in your body that cause gestational diabetes normally occur only when you are pregnant. After the baby is born, your body goes back to normal and the condition goes away. Gestational diabetes is treatable, and the best outcomes result from careful management and control of blood sugar levels. The best way to control gestational diabetes is to find out you have it early and start treatment quickly. Treating gestational diabetes—even if you don’t have any symptoms or your symptoms are mild— greatly reduces health problems for mother and baby.
Thus, for the interim, the participants of the Fifth International Workshop-Conference on GDM endorsed a motion to continue use of the deﬁnition, classiﬁcation criteria, and strategies for detection and diagnosis of GDM that were recommended at the Fourth Workshop-Conference. Those guidelines are reproduced (with minor modiﬁcations) in this article in APPENDIX Tables 1 and 2. he Fifth International WorkshopConference on Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) was held in Chicago, IL, 11–13 November 2005 under the sponsorship of the American Diabetes Association. The meeting provided a forum for review of new information concerning GDM in the areas of pathophysiology, epidemiology, perinatal outcome, long-range implications for mother and her offspring, and management strategies. New information and recommendations related to each of these major topics are summarized in the report that follows. The issues regarding strategies and criteria for the detection and diagnosis of GDM were not reviewed or discussed in detail, since it is anticipated that the Hyperglycemia and Adverse Pregnancy Outcome (HAPO) study will provide data in mid-2007 that will foster the development of criteria for the diagnosis SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS — The invited lectures, topical discussions, and posters presented at the conference and the invited manuscripts that appear in this issue of Diabetes Care served as the basis for the following summary and recommendations.
Because of the popularity of The Lord of the Rings in all its mediums, the creatures known as “orcs” or, sometimes, “goblins” are commonly known at this point in time. Even those who have never read J.R.R. Tolkien’s books have some image associated with the name. “Orc.” It is Old English in origin, returned to the popular lexicon of both British and American English by a certain professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford University. What does one imagine when hearing that word? For those who know these creatures through Tolkien’s writings, one probably pictures a dank, stooped warrior, not fair in any sense of the word, with a taste for blood and greed for destruction: dark, coarse, stinky, and cruel. Between such a description and the activities of orcs as narrated in The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, these creatures are, in a word, evil. Not one of the passages in these books is sympathetic to the orcs; not once are they considered among the free peoples of Middle-earth; and, not once do their actions (as we see them) really justify it. We must remember that these creatures do not exist in the reality we here experience, and as such that Tolkien imagined these characters and thus made conscious choices in their written creation. It is entirely intentional that we never see an orc worthy of our sympathy or our pity as readers. In so doing, Tolkien establishes the orcs as a race of evil motives, evil deeds, and evil natures. Even men, the men from the East and South so very different from the Gondorian heroes of The Lord of the Rings, receive forgiveness from their enemies and earn a chance at redemption. No such considerations for the orcs! Aligned first with Morgoth, and then with Sauron, the orcs, by their very nature, it seems, cannot be redeemed. They are evil, and thus irreversibly immoral – or so Tolkien’s presentation leads many to believe. And, of course, the orcs are evil according to Tolkien’s own morality, defined by him as “a guide to our human purposes, the conduct of our lives: (a) the ways in which our individual talents can be developed without waste or misuse; and (b) without injuring our kindred or interfering with their development” (Letters 399-400). Tolkien’s own morals aside, has he truly made the orcs irreversibly evil? Is there no question, no possibility, that they can be redeemed – or even, that they are not evil in the first place? ...

IGES Import for AutoCAD is a plug-in for AutoCAD. IGES Import for AutoCAD gives AutoCAD the ability to import geometric data from IGES files. IGES files contain graphical data in the form widely accepted by most CAD/CAM systems. IGES Import for AutoCAD converts this geometric data into corresponding AutoCAD entities and adds them to the contents of the currently opened AutoCAD drawing. IGES Import for AutoCAD is powered by the widely used 3D InterOp technology from Spatial. 3D InterOp is the industry standard for proprietary and neutral CAD file format data exchange and is used in almost all the major CAD systems. Besides data exchange 3D InterOp also offers powerful repairing and healing features which are extensively used in IGES Import for AutoCAD. Repairing involves checking the file for corrupted data and fixing the invalid data. Healing corrects the differences in precision. IGES Import for AutoCAD also creates a detailed log file which is extremely useful in identifying data translation problems and aids in locating and fixing errors. IGES Import for AutoCAD can read IGES files up to version 5.3. IGES Import for AutoCAD is designed to work with the following versions of AutoCAD: • AutoCAD 2011 (32 & 64 Bit) • AutoCAD 2010 (32 & 64 Bit) • AutoCAD 2009 (32 & 64 Bit) • AutoCAD 2008 (32 & 64 Bit) • AutoCAD 2007 • AutoCAD 2006 • AutoCAD 2005 • AutoCAD 2004 • AutoCAD 2002 • AutoCAD 2000i • AutoCAD 2000.
Point Cloud for AutoCAD is a reverse engineering plug-in for AutoCAD. This plug-in gives AutoCAD the ability to reconstruct the geometry of an object from a point cloud which describes it. Point Cloud for AutoCAD can drape a surface over a point cloud or wrap a mesh around a point cloud. Draping a surface is similar to laying a piece of cloth over an object. The surface is deformed to take the shape of the object along the drape direction. A surface can be draped along one of the six orthogonal directions (top, bottom, front, back, right and left) or a custom user specified direction. Wrapping a mesh is similar to wrapping cloth all around an object to close it completely. Point Cloud for AutoCAD has the ability to wrap a mesh around a concave or a convex point cloud. Point Cloud for AutoCAD is designed to work with the following versions of AutoCAD: • AutoCAD 2011 (32 & 64 Bit) • AutoCAD 2010 (32 & 64 Bit) • AutoCAD 2009 (32 & 64 Bit) • AutoCAD 2008 (32 & 64 Bit) • AutoCAD 2007 • AutoCAD 2006 • AutoCAD 2005 • AutoCAD 2004 • AutoCAD 2002 • AutoCAD 2000i • AutoCAD 2000 Point Cloud for AutoCAD is very easy to use. Once installed, it must be loaded into the AutoCAD environment. There are simple instructions for this in the ReadMe file. Once loaded it adds new commands to AutoCAD's existing commands and a new submenu called "PointCloud" to the AutoCAD menu containing these newly added commands. Point Cloud for AutoCAD comes with detailed documentation for each command as well as a set of tutorials to get you started in the shortest possible time.
