Efficient Data Center Architectures Using Non-Volatile Memory and Reliability Techniques by David Andrew Roberts Chair: Trevor N. Mudge The cost of running a data center is increasingly dominated by energy consumption, contributed by power provisioning, cooling and server components such as processors, memories and disk drives. Meanwhile, emerging classes(More)
INTRODUCTION Most foreign bodies pass through the gastrointestinal tract uneventfully. The majority of the reported literature describes the management of ingested blunt objects. However, ingestion of sharp objects can still occur with a higher rate of perforation corresponding to treatment dilemmas. CASE PRESENTATION We report the conservative management(More)
We present the results of a numerical investigation of the Ericksen-Leslie equations for the problem of electrohydrodynamic convection in a nematic liquid crystal. The combination of a finite element approach and numerical bifurcation techniques allows us to provide details of the basic flow and include the physically relevant effect of nonslip side walls.(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects approximately 5% of the population. Based on 2014 data, peritoneal dialysis (PD) is underutilised in Northern Ireland with a prevalence of only 11% in patients requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT). Recent National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines aim to increase the rate of PD(More)
Using the Spitzer Space Telescope, we have observed 90 weak-line and classical T Tauri stars in the vicinity of the Ophiuchus, Lupus, Chamaeleon, and Taurus star-forming regions as part of the Cores to Disks (c2d) Spitzer Legacy project. In addition to the Spitzer data, we have obtained contemporaneous optical photometry to assist in constructing spectral(More)
CASE REPORT. A 54-year-old mentally handicapped man was admitted with a one week history of vomiting, rigors and periumbilical pain. Initially he was well, haemodynamically stable and not clinically anaemic, jaundiced or pyrexic. His abdomen was soft, with slight tenderness in the right hypochondrium and 4 cm of hepatomegaly. Four hours later he suddenly(More)
