Over the last few years there has been an avalanche of technical literature on techniques for allowing nodes to access and share one of the most valuable resources of a computer communication network, i.e., the bandwidth of the communication media.<supscrpt>1</supscrpt> This report describes the design of a new type of Local Area Computer Network called BID(More)
Although the commonest manifestation of Salmonella infection is acute gastroenteritis, infection may spread to the bloodstream may and the illness can present with focal lesions in almost any organ with or without septicemia. We describe here a case of Salmonella typhi infection of a sacroiliac joint that was cured with ciprofloxacin therapy for six weeks.(More)

Osteomyelitis in adolescents is a serious disease with the potential for lifelong disability. The key to successful management is early diagnosis, including bone sampling for microbiological and pathological examination to allow targeted and long-lasting antibiotic therapy. Staphylococcus aureus is the most frequently isolated microorganism in these(More)
The paper describes the work done thus far in the development of a means of statistically multiplexing data and encoded voice in a transparent and intelligent network called TI-NET. A review of previous work in packetized voice transmission in a conventional packet switched network (ARPANET) has revealed problems related to large fixed and variable(More)
Mass gatherings pooling people from different parts of the world—the largest of which is to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, for Hajj—may impose risks for acquisition and dissemination of infectious diseases. A substantial number of pilgrims to Hajj and Umrah are Turkish citizens (456,000 in 2014) but data are lacking on scale of the problem. We did a retrospective(More)
