Following a strategic review of Global Services, there will be a two-year restructuring of its operations to create a simpler and leaner operating model. Technology trends create the opportunity to evolve Global Services as a digital business, driving innovation on the cloud-based platforms that deliver Global Services' solutions, with its global network at the core. Having successfully steered Global Services towards its next evolution as a digital business, Alvarez feels the time is right for someone else to lead the division. Bas Burger said: "Global Services has developed world-leading products and services. This, combined with our strong relationships with our customers, puts us in a strong position to enable the digital transformation of their businesses. I look forward to continuing to build this position, deliver on our strategy and drive growth in Global Services' strategic portfolio of networking, cloud-based Unified Collaboration, hybrid cloud services and security." Gavin Patterson, chief executive BT Group said: "I would like to thank Luis for the contributions he made to the company since he joined 18 years ago. He has helped to transform the Global Services business during this time, delivering very high levels of support for our customers, while evolving our products and services to seize upon technology changes and new opportunities that lay ahead. "Technology trends mean we can now be less dependent on owning physical local network assets around the world, giving us the opportunity to transform Global Services into a more focussed digital business that can deliver using cloud-based services. This is exactly what Bas will set out to achieve in his new role leading the business, and I am confident that he will drive Global Services forward." Dutch native, Bas Burger (age 46) will lead the Global Services team and ensure that the very high levels of support received by its customers continue to improve. Before joining BT in 2008, Burger was executive president and part of the management committee of Getronics NV. There he ran global sales, channels and partnerships and supported and developed their international business. He was also CEO and Managing Director of KPN Entercom Solutions, NV. Burger holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Bradford, UK.

Optical networks are undergoing significant changes, fueled by the exponential growth of traffic due to multimedia services and by the increased uncertainty in predicting the sources of this traffic due to the ever changing models of content providers over the Internet. The change has already begun: simple on-off modulation of signals, which was adequate for bit rates up to 10 Gb/s, has given way to much more sophisticated modulation schemes for 100 Gb/s and beyond. The next bottleneck is the 10-year-old division of the optical spectrum into a fixed "wavelength grid," which will no longer work for 400 Gb/s and above, heralding the need for a more flexible grid. Once both transceivers and switches become flexible, a whole new elastic optical networking paradigm is born. In this article we describe the drivers, building blocks, architecture, and enabling technologies for this new paradigm, as well as early standardization efforts. © 2012 IEEE.

Diverticulosis of the colon is frequently found on routine colonoscopy, and the incidence of diverticular disease and its complications appears to be increasing. The role of colonoscopy in managing this disease is still controversial. Colonoscopy plays a key role in managing diverticular bleeding. Several techniques have been effectively used in this field, but band ligation seems to be the best in preventing rebleeding. Colonoscopy is also effective in posing a correct differential diagnosis with other forms of chronic colitis involving colon harbouring diverticula (in particular with Crohn᾿s disease or Segmental Colitis Associated with Diverticulosis). The role of colonoscopy to confirm diagnosis of uncomplicated diverticulitis is still under debate, since the risk of advanced colonic neoplasia in patients admitted for acute uncomplicated diverticulitis is not increased as compared to the average-risk population. On the contrary, colonoscopy is mandatory if patients complain of persistent symptoms or after resolution of an episode of complicated diverticulitis. Finally, a recent endoscopic classification, called Diverticular Inflammation and Complications Assessment (DICA), has been developed and validated. This classification seems to be a promising tool for predicting the outcome of the colon harboring diverticula, but further, prospective studies have to confirm its predictive role on the outcome of the disease. © 2015, Romanian Society of Gastroenterology.
