Founded in Indian Territory in 1858, the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth met, a century later, challenges of a new frontier in the church's call to adapt to modern circumstances and in their own awareness of deepening social and ecclesial needs. For three decades, sisters struggled with conditions that threatened unity: issues of governance, demands of professional training, diverse backgrounds, differing experience of communal life, developing theology of religious vows. Diminishing numbers coupled with need for leadership led to new institutional roles and new forms of ministry. Emerging Frontiers records the struggle and its outcome. A common past and determination to stay together marked the long search for a renewed common vision. A new century brought re-dedication to a Vincentian heritage and far-flung partnerships in the mission given by Jesus Christ to his people. Commitment to those in need, especially women and children; fidelity to the church; faithful relationship with those of means and good will, and with the earth; transition to sponsorship of institutional ministries, many now administered by lay women and men; solidarity with all who stand for justice and peace: this was the resolution of a renewed Community whose story is told here.

The Extended Specimen highlights the research potential for ornithological specimens, and is meant to encourage ornithologists poised to initiate a renaissance in collections-based ornithological research. Contributors illustrate how collections and specimens are used in novel ways by adopting emerging new technologies and analytical techniques. Case studies use museum specimens and emerging and non-traditional types of specimens, which are developing new methods for making biological collections more accessible and "usable" for ornithological researchers. Thus, book documents the power of ornithological collections to address key research questions of global importance.

In recent years, an impressive progress has been made in our understanding of the developmental processes involved in the formation of the spermatozoa and egg in various species. Interestingly, using stem cell biology, researchers have created both male and female gametes from totipotent cells. Further, progress has been made in our understanding of cellular and molecular basis of the sperm-egg interaction leading to fertilization.

Annotation A dozen papers from a symposium held in Dallas, Texas in March and April 1998. Researchers from academic and industrial sectors look at diverse aspects of a polymer that was one of the last types to be commercialized but is now the most widely used worldwide. Covering both scientific and technological areas, they report on recent developments in catalysis, polymerization, polymer design, and characterization. The specific topics include siloxy-substituted group IV metallocene catalysts, random copolymerization of propylene and styrene with homogeneous monocyclopentadienyltitanium- methylaluminoxanes catalyst, advantaged polyethylene product design, and determining trimethylaluminum and characterizing methylaluminoxanes using proton nuclear magnetic resonance imaging.

Advanced stage cancers are of concern to Oncologists world wide. These invariably defy routine treatment. Treatment of Advanced Stage Cancers: Current Status and Emerging Frontiers describes newer options for treatment of Advanced Liver Cancers; Targeting of Pancreatic cancers by silencing RNA & selective killing of tumor cells expressing hCG by a high affinity, high specificity antibody linked to curcumin. Reviewed also are the next generation of recombinant immunotoxins; herbal formulations eliminating Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) in cervical cancer cells besides immune targeting of oncogenic proteins of HPV to achieve a therapeutic vaccine for carcinoma of cervix. The book discusses optimisation of antigens for anti-cancer vaccines and optimization of Dendritic cells and viral vectors for immunotherapy. Clinical and experimental results are reported on therapeutic benefits of cancers by Mycobacterium indicus pranii. (DCGI approved vaccine for leprosy marketed as Immuvac). Other topics covered include treatment of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia, Radiation-Enhanced Immunotherapy of Advanced cancers, Neem leaf glycoproteins regulating immune response in cancer and biology of metastasis of Head and Neck cancers. A new blood test for early diagnosis of Epithelial Ovarian Cancers is also described. The opening chapter by the Nobel Laureate David Baltimore presents elegantly the role of Micro RNAs in chronic inflammatory response and cancers.

See how the principles of Service Science govern the dynamics driving the adoption of cloud computing in the industry. Cloud as Service shows you how the evolution of enterprise computing platforms to application-specific cloud platforms (ASCPs) have aligned to business needs. You'll also learn processes for developing and building ASCPs. You'll gain insight into how executives, managers, and technologists are utilizing cloud services, cloud service providers, equipment manufacturers, and software and application vendors participating in cloud supply chains. For business, the appeal of cloud computing must go beyond the notion of convenient, on-demand access of networked pooled access to computing resources. Industry leaders have learned to apply cloud computing to become more nimble, cost effective, and customer engaging as they strive for competitive advantage, regardless of size. These companies define and build cloud platforms customized for their needs rather than using someone else’s. This book shows you how to use a holistic, end-to-end view of platform planning, platform development, supply chains and operations to collapse platform development times to a fraction of the original time. You’ll see that strategies for selling to the cloud market are essentially incomplete; and that in order to be successful, businesses must become cloud service businesses themselves, incorporating cloud technologies in their engineering, IT, sales and marketing, and delivery processes. What You'll Learn: Historical perspective to provide insight into the dynamics driving cloud evolution today State of the art in IT requirements and cloud solutions The value of User Experience (UX) driven design principles The crucial roles of Service Brokers and Service Assurance Managers The landscape of emerging cloud services and what they mean to your enterprise Service Portals and Enterprise Service Buses Who This Book Is For: CIOs, CTOs, data center architects, solution architects and application engineers Educational institutions building a systems integration curriculum Developers who want to understand how their work fits in the cloud ecosystem
