Content Distribution Networks (CDNs) are based on a static infrastructure, and caching and replication in CDNs are performed in a static manner. We argue that it is necessary to design future CDNs in such a way that they are scalable to reach enough customers, their costs are kept low, and they provide a Quality-of-Service that satisfies the client(More)
OBJECTIVE Blast-induced neurotrauma (BINT), if not fatal, is nonetheless potentially crippling. It can produce a wide array of acute symptoms in moderate-to-severe exposures, but mild BINT (mBINT) is characterized by the distinct absence of acute clinical abnormalities. The lack of observable indications for mBINT is particularly alarming, as these injuries(More)
AIMS Oral and intravenous proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are equipotent in raising gastric pH. However, it is not known whether oral PPIs can replace intravenous PPIs in patients with bleeding peptic ulcers. METHODS We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials to compare oral and intravenous PPIs among patients with(More)
Hearing difficulties are the most commonly reported disabilities among veterans. Blast exposures during explosive events likely play a role, given their propensity to directly damage both peripheral (PAS) and central (CAS) auditory system components. Post-blast PAS pathophysiology has been well-documented in both clinical case reports and laboratory(More)
Blast-induced traumatic brain injury (bTBI) has been linked to a multitude of delayed-onset neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders, but complete understanding of their pathogenesis remains elusive. To develop mechanistic relationships between bTBI and post-blast neurological sequelae, it is imperative to characterize the initiating traumatic(More)
