Goodbye, login. Hello, heart scan

(University at Buffalo) Forget fingerprint computer identification or retinal scanning. A University at Buffalo-led team has developed a computer security system using the dimensions of your heart as your identifier.The system uses low-level Doppler radar to measure your heart, and then continually monitors your heart to make sure no one else has stepped in to run your computer. The technology will be presented next month at the 23rd MobiCom conference.

Conclusion: Hence the paper depicts the structure of non-holonomic robotic vehicle and control with the help of PID controller. The parallel parking scheme has established using MATLAB programming and verified with the help of real time prototype. The paper proposed an idea of automated parking system in contrast to manual parking by the driver. The consumption of space, energy and time are minimized due to the automated parking scheme. Due to human error and negligence, harms such as collisions and accidents are occurred. These harms are reduced by implementing the parallel parking scheme in an intelligent manner. In futu...

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2018Source: Journal of Analytical and Applied PyrolysisAuthor(s): Jun Zhou, Lei Wu, Kun Liang, Qiuli Zhang, Yonghui Song, Yuhong Tian, Xinzhe LanAbstractMicrowave pyrolysis has been widely studied as a new type of coal thermal processing. In this research, we applied different amounts of MoS2 to the coal microwave pyrolysis and observed the consequent product effects to see if a higher pyrolysis efficiency and tar quality can be achieved. The catalytic action of MoS2 in solid, liquid, and gas products was further studied using both conventional and microwave pyrolysis, and a syn...

Thymic carcinoma represents a rare and poorly understood type of thymic epithelial neoplasm that has been the subject of much controversy. Poorly differentiated nonkeratinizing squamous cell carcinoma, also known as lymphoepithelioma-like thymic carcinoma, is a rare variant of thymic carcinoma that has not been adequately characterized in the literature. The clinicopathologic, immunohistochemical, ultrastructural, and molecular features of 25 cases are reported. The patients were 19 men and 6 women, ranging in age from 20 to 85 years (mean: 60 y). The tumors presented clinically as anterior mediastinal masses with c...

Conclusion: In the low frequencies, it seems to matter where the cartilage is placed, and in particular the annular rim of the TM seems to be important for the low-frequency acoustic transfer function. In the higher frequencies, all graft placements caused some drop at all frequencies. In all frequencies, effects were modest by clinical standards.

Conclusions: SDC is one of the most aggressive salivary malignancies and typically presents as a rapidly enlarging mass in the involved gland. Although SDC's clinical course is characterized by early metastasis, isolated neural invasion has not been reported in the absence of an identifiable primary tumor within the gland of origin. The present case illustrates the clinical history and treatment of the first case of a SDC presenting as an isolated facial nerve lesion from perineural spread.

A morbidly-obese 57-year-old diabetic and hypertensive man with chronic kidney disease, diastolic heart failure, and bilateral hearing loss was found to have soft tissue masses/densities in the lateral aspect of both auditory canals on local examination and on imaging. He underwent biopsies of both ear canal masses and histologic examination revealed amyloid deposits in the dermis. These deposits were confirmed as AL (amyloid light chain) kappa-type amyloid by laser mass spectrometry. A systemic work-up showed plasma cell dyscrasia with 9% kappa light chain restricted plasma cells in the bone marrow as well as amyloid depo...

CONCLUSIONS: The overall incidence of ureteric strictures is low in patients undergoing RARC with totally intracorporeal urinary diversion. Strictures were more common on the left side, which has been described in open series and is probably related to the increased mobilization on the left side required to cross the ureter to the right side.
