Cases of convergent evolution that involve changes in the same developmental pathway, called parallelism, provide evidence that a limited number of developmental changes are available to evolve a particular phenotype. To our knowledge, in no case are the genetic changes underlying morphological convergence understood. However, morphological convergence is(More)
Drug rash with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), and Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) are rare and life-threatening conditions that may be precipitated by anticonvulsive agents. We describe a patient with overlapping features of these hypersensitivity syndromes.
Hypertrophic scars and keloids are challenging to manage, particularly as sequelae of burns in children in whom the psychologic burden and skin characteristics differ substantially from adults. Prevention of hypertrophic scars and keloids after burns is currently the best strategy in their management to avoid permanent functional and aesthetical(More)
In the course of developing a web server for an embedded operating system, we had need of a filesystem which was small enough to alter to our needs and written in a high-level language so that we could show certain high assurance properties about its behavior. Since we had already ported the Haskell runtime to this operating system, Haskell was the obvious(More)
In this review, we discuss the literature regarding both concussion and mild traumatic brain injury. We focus on the role for neuroimaging in the concussed patient and describe the recommended practices related to imaging in concussion. This discussion first focuses on the exclusion of severe injuries and is followed by a discussion of the potential utility(More)
The opportunities presented by social networking have led to millions of users flocking to sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare. Even sites like Amazon have added the ability for users to interact with one another, though it seems tangential to the site's stated purpose. These social networking sites and social networking features generate massive(More)
Social media has become a part of our daily life and we use it for many reasons. One of its uses is to get our questions answered. Given a multitude of social media sites, however, one immediate challenge is to pick the most relevant site for a question. This is a challenging problem because (1) questions are usually short, and (2) social media sites(More)
Video games and the playing thereof have been a €xture of American culture since their introduction in the arcades of the 1980s. However, it was not until the recent proliferation of broadband connections robust and fast enough to handle live video streaming that players of video games have transitioned from a content consumer role to a content producer(More)
Many programming languages and operating systems have a means of bundling together related source files, libraries, documentation, or executables for distribution. Such packaging systems contribute to a developer’s ability to write complex software, since they can build upon reusable components which can be easily installed on an end-user’s system. In(More)
