Three cases of giant cell tumor of the sphenoid bone are reported together with a revision of the previously reported cases in the neurosurgical literature. The importance of this tumor in the neurosurgical pathology is stressed, mainly to the impossibility of a correct diagnosis on a clinical and radiological basis. A good prognosis is possible with a(More)
This paper augments Boehm-Turner's model of agile and plan-based software development augmented with an AI search algorithm. The AI search finds the key factors that predict for the success of agile or traditional plan-based software developments. According to our simulations and AI search algorithm: (1) in no case did agile methods perform worse than(More)
The dispersal of cells from an initially constrained location is a crucial aspect of many physiological phenomena ranging from morphogenesis to tumour spreading. In such processes, the way cell-cell interactions impact the motion of single cells, and in turn the collective dynamics, remains unclear. Here, the spreading of micro-patterned colonies of(More)
As the digital world expands the building of trust and the retention of privacy in information sharing becomes paramount. The impediment to information sharing is a lack of trust between the parties, based on security and privacy concerns, as well as information asymmetry. In an effort to foster trusted information sharing we propose a trusted enclave with(More)
The increased threat of legal sanctions or fines for failure to comply with laws and regulations make it imperative that auditors assess the level of compliance with information sharing policies and regulations in a timely manner. Embedding a monitoring mechanism, such as our Continuous Compliance Assurance (CCA) module, into a technology solution for(More)
The cases of six patients with fronto-ethmoidal osteomas which have produced intracranial complications are reported. The patients have been divided in two groups depending on their clinical aspects, from cranio-facial deformities to exophtalmus, rinorrhea, pneumocephalus, meningitis and mucocele. A review of the literature is made and the importance of(More)
