Although commercial IPTV channels are streamed utilizing multicast technologies implemented within network routers, end-to-end peerto-peer (P2P) streaming techniques received great attention thanks to: • Their flexibility, as they can easily be put into action at the edges of the Internet with little hardware investments. • Their efficiency, as they use(More)
The opportunities laid by the joint use of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) streaming systems and advanced Digital Fountain (DF) codes in the context of Internet Protocol TeleVision (IPTV) platforms have set high expectations for their combined use. P2P streaming strategies, on one hand, have proven to be able to increase the bandwidth efficiency and the consequent(More)
We studied the relationships between magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery (LNNB) in 64 patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS). MRI films were scored according to arbitrary descriptive criteria designed to emphasize patterns of alterations. Five groups were created: group 1 and 2 had typical(More)
The perceptions, knowledge, and gaps in the knowledge of Ohio bovine veterinarians about antibiotic resistance (ABR) issues were systematically determined.

This report describes the rehabilitation of a patient who was completely edentulous in the mandible with a removable prosthesis supported by implants on four Straumann Wide-Neck implants placed in the positions of the canines and second molars. The Cagliari modified conometry technique was developed to improve and simplify anchorage systems based on conical(More)
A rise in arterial pressure above 140 mmHg systolic or 85 mmHg diastolic is pathological in pregnant women. Such changes may either reveal chronic hypertension or constitute a purely gestational complication. The persistence or regression of abnormally high BP values 3 months after delivery retrospectively indicates whether the hypertension was chronic or(More)
