launched the Cell project 1 in 2000, the design goal was to improve performance an order of magnitude over that of desktop systems shipping in 2005. To meet that goal, designers had to optimize performance against area, power, volume, and cost, but clearly single-core designs offered diminishing returns on investment. 1-3 If increased efficiency was the(More)
Endurance exercise training induces a significant increase in the respiratory capacity of skeletal muscle. This is reflected by a training-induced increase in mitochondrial enzyme activity. One consequence of this adaptation is that there is a decreased reliance on carbohydrate utilization with a concomitant increase in fat utilization, resulting in an(More)
The PL.8 compiler accepts multiple source languages and produces high quality object code for several different machines. The strategy used is to first do a simple translation of the source program to a low level intermediate language. Global optimization and register allocation are then used to improve code rather than relying on special case code(More)
Typically, the choice of intermediate representation by a particular compiler implementation seeks to address a specific goal. The intermediate language of the TOBEY compilers, XIL, was initially chosen to facilitate the production of highly optimal scalar code, yet, it was easily extended to a higher level form YIL in order to support a new suite of(More)
To determine whether the adaptive increase in left ventricular systolic function in the trained state is mediated by enhanced responses to beta-adrenergic stimulation, we studied eight male endurance athletes [age 27 +/- 1.8 yr; maximal O2 uptake (VO2max) 60 +/- 0.9 (SE) ml x kg-1 x min-1] and eight sedentary men (age 27 +/- 1.4 yr; VO2max 43.1 +/- 1.7 ml x(More)
A group within the Computer Science Department of the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center is now engaged in the design and development of System/A, an experimental operating system to support a variety of user activities with multiprocessing hardware. PL/I has been chosen as the system implementation language. Work with the language has shown that it is very(More)
A two-year-old female miniature poodle died unexpectedly while romping with its owner. Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the left pulmonic sinus was discovered at necropsy. Histologically, the right ventricle was unremarkable, but multifocal to coalescing necrosis and fibrosis occurred in the myocardium and endocardium of the left ventricle.(More)
This study investigates the comparative effectiveness of Senior House Officers (SHOs) and Emergency Nurse Practitioners (ENPs) in the application of the Ottawa ankle rules, in a large inner city Emergency Department in the United Kingdom (UK). Sixty patients with ankle injuries were randomly included in this study which took place in the minor injuries unit(More)
The Cell Broadband Engine (CBE) processor provides the potential to achieve an impressive level of speed up for multimedia applications. Video Surveillance is a growing multimedia application due to its concern in various areas like commercial security, military applications. In this paper, we present CBE as a cost effective computational solution for the(More)
