The provision of accurate models of Glacial Isostatic Adjustment (GIA) is presently a priority need in climate studies, largely due to the potential of the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) data to be used to determine accurate and continent-wide assessments of ice mass change and hydrology. However, modelled GIA is M. A. King (&) N. Penna(More)
The Dutch health care system has been described as a 'patchwork quilt'. It is a complicated system that has evolved from a constant adding and changing of institutions, regulations and responsibilities. Every citizen of the Netherlands has an entitlement to health care. The government authorities in the Netherlands have focused on creating favourable(More)
In the context of the European project, the diffusion of 10 selected cases of minimally invasive therapy (MIT) in the Dutch health care system was documented and analyzed. In each case the diffusion pattern resulting from the balance of stimulating and impeding factors is described, and summarized in a matrix framework. Budgetary pressures, lack of evidence(More)
Many technical procedures may be done with better quality at higher volumes. In this paper, we examine the experience with coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Immediate death rates (death during the hospital admission) with CABG vary widely, from lows of 1 percent or so to highs approaching 15 percent and perhaps higher. Research from the United(More)
We present the first measurement of the planet frequency beyond the “snow line”, for the planet-to-star mass-ratio interval −4.5 < log q < −2, corresponding to the range of ice giants to gas giants. We find dNpl d log q d log s = (0.36± 0.15) dex at mean mass ratio q = 5×10−4 with no discernible deviation from a flat (Öpik’s Law) distribution in log(More)
