The Large Scale Data Facility (LSDF) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology was started end of 2009 with the aim of supporting the growing requirements of data intensive experiments. In close cooperation with the involved scientific communities, the LSDF provides them not only with adequate storage space but with a directly attached analysis farm and --(More)
Newer biological treatment strategies have been developed in the last decade with some promising outcomes. Their safety, however, has been questioned lately with multiple reports of increased risk for malignancies and infectious complications. These reports render their use suboptimal. We report a 44-year-old woman receiving adalimumab (Humira) for advanced(More)
The Large Scale Data Facility (LSDF) was conceived and launched at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) end of 2009 to address the growing need for value-added storage services for data intensive experiments. The LSDF main focus is to support scientific experiments producing large data sets reaching into the petabyte range with adequate storage,(More)

The main focus of the project is to provide scientific communities producing data collections in the tera — to petabyte range with the necessary(More)
There has been limited research that has examined the prevalence of depression and attitudes towards depression and mental health treatment in Arab-American adolescents; we sought to assess these in a predominantly Arab-American community in metro Detroit. A health survey of adolescents aged 12-17 years was conducted (n=98). Participants were recruited from(More)
Experience with generating simulation data of high energy physics experiments has shown that a job monitoring system (JMS) is essential to understand failures of jobs within the grid. Such a system can give information about the status of the user job as well as the worker node in parallel while a user job is running. It should support the user directly by(More)
Chest pain is an extremely common presenting symptom that is usually related to a cardiac cause. This case illustrates an unusual presentation of multiple myeloma as a cause of atypical chest pain. This case presentation shows the importance of having a broad differential diagnosis while evaluating patients with atypical chest pain. It also illustrates the(More)
An investigation was carried out to evaluate the insecticidal activity of Allium sativum, Zingiber officinale and Nigella sativa extracts against the larvae of T. granarium under laboratory conditions in the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, Pakistan during 2009-10. The highest concentration of (6 %) Z. officinale was found to be comparatively more(More)
gLite is one of the largest distributed computing infrastructures in operation. It provides access to hundreds of different clusters - all installed and maintained in different ways. This paper analyses the difficulties which users typically experience when moving from their own workstation via clusters or supercomputers to the grid. Based on that analysis,(More)
