SUMMARY The past two decades have seen increasing sophistication in software work. Now and in the future, the work of both practitioners and researchers would be helped by a more objective and finer granularity recognition of types of software evolution and software maintenance activities as actually done. To these ends, this paper proposes a clarifying… (More)
PURPOSE To evaluate carboplatin, etoposide, and bleomycin (JEB) in children with malignant extracranial germ cell tumors (GCTs). PATIENTS AND METHODS Malignant GCTs in children aged 0 to 16 years were excised without major morbidity or otherwise biopsied.

We present the case of a 43-year-old man who presented with metastatic abdominal wall synovial sarcoma. CT of the abdomen showed a 6 cm anterior abdominal wall mass with a nodular, non-homogeneous pattern of enhancement. A chest radiograph showed metastases to the lungs.
Intracorporeal drug smuggling, particularly of cocaine, is increasing. The so-called 'body packers' present a difficult clinical problem, particularly as no coherent management policy has been formulated. The various methods of diagnosis and the treatment options available are presented and discussed.
Pair programming purportedly delivers quality code with little productivity loss. The authors' field study, outside the pair programming environment, shows that two-person teams working independently are more productive than those working concurrently; agile methods may overcome inherent productivity losses of concurrent development. This research contrasts… (More)
– In most software development organizations, there is seldom a one-to-one mapping between software developers and development tasks. It is frequently necessary to concurrently assign individuals to multiple tasks, and to assign more than one individual to work cooperatively on a single task. A principal goal in making such assignments should be to minimize… (More)
