I had the opportunity to attend only one of several schedule d presentations and activities at the Computer Science Conference/SIGCS E Symposium held in Detroit February 12-15. However, I found it to be a n interesting session, entitled "Computer Scientists' Responsibility t o Educational Research". It was organized and chaired by Adele Goldberg,(More)
Presentations will focus on current research in effective strategies for visual representation of information in a graphical context. Topics of concern are: What combination of textual and graphical information is most effective for a given purpose? What are advantages of color vs. black and white?

To identify predictors of death, and to compare our morbidity and mortality rates with those rates of a previously reported series of patients with pediatric(More)
Nefopam, a non-narcotic analgesic, had only minor effects upon the blood pH, PCO2 and standard bicarbonate of the conscious rabbit. In contrast morphine caused a dose-dependent increase in PCO2 and standard bicarbonate. When nefopam was administered in conjunction with morphine (2.5 mg kg-1 and 1 mg kg-1 i.v. respectively) the increase in PCO2 was greater(More)
By the early to middle 1970's it was clear that education in computer science and related fields was failing to meet many of the needs of business and industry. In self-defense, many firms adopted the practice of hiring PhD's to lead programming projects (on the grounds that the PhD's were bright). Other firms chose to hire bright Bachelors, most of whom(More)
To evaluate, in patients with chest pain, the diagnostic value of ST elevation (STE) in lead aVR during stress testing prior to 99m Tc-sestamibi scanning correlating ischaemic territory with angiographic findings. Consecutive patients attending for 99m Tc-sestamibi myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) completed a treadmill protocol. Peak exercise ECGs were(More)
