Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) is an application area that requires access to large super-computing resources and generates huge amounts of raw data. UKQCD currently stores and requires access to around five terabytes of data, a figure that is expected to grow dramatically as the collaborations purpose built HPC system, QCDOC, comes on line in 2004. This data(More)
Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) is an important mediator of insulin resistance in obesity and diabetes through its ability to decrease the tyrosine kinase activity of the insulin receptor. We report here a remarkable degree of insulin resistance in a patient with adult respiratory distress syndrome and myelodysplasia.

This article deals primarily with the needs of people with a degree of mental retardation, from mild to moderately severe, who are able to live approximately normal lives with assistance by counselling, advice and family help.It has been found that they do much better living in the community, mixing with normal people, but also with access to the company of(More)
PURPOSE Several robotic delivery systems for prostate brachytherapy are under development or in pre-clinical testing. One of the features of robotic brachytherapy is the ability to vary spacing of needles at non-fixed intervals. This feature may play an important role in prostate brachytherapy, which is traditionally template-based with fixed needle spacing(More)

Travelling in primitive conditions demands considerable forethought in terms of preventing morbidity. This article describes the measures and supplies taken on a summer trip to central Labrador. Attempts were made to culture for pathogens at the beginning and end of the trip.
An analysis of the hadronic spectrum from lattice QCD. Abstract In chapter 1 I begin by discussing the basic ideas of quantum field theory (QFT). I provide a review of symmetries in physics and then move on to discuss the quark model. Chapter 2 is a review of lattice gauge theory with particular attention paid to lattice QCD. I begin by introducing lattice(More)
