Conventional wisdom holds that strong cache consistency is too expensive for the Web, and weak consistency methods such as Time-To-Live (TTL) are most appropriate.

Global cooling and the development of continental-scale Antarctic glaciation occurred in the late middle Eocene to early Oligocene (~38 to 28 million years ago), accompanied by deep-ocean reorganization attributed to gradual Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) development. Our benthic foraminiferal stable isotope comparisons show that a large δ(13)C offset(More)
In minimally invasive surgery, steerable needle is needed to perform medical tasks in the deep of a human body. In some cases, a one-direction bendable needle can satisfy actual needs. Therefore, a one-direction bendable articulated needle is proposed in this paper. The proposed needle consists of a beveltip head, articulations, and sections. Articulations(More)
