A digital archive is a digital database, which is built by the internet, websites' culture and information techniques. In digital archives, there's a high correlation between documental connotation and information techniques, especially in historically cultural information. Numerous institutions archives are going digitalized. People are able to access digital archives information, even if seldom people could access the original. However, on the current artificial intelligence methodology, it is still a hard problem to describe a story for humans after computer reading mass information. At this moment, if we can gather a lot of friends from the internet, discussing valuable photos, articles or videos from blogs, such as food and beverage blog, then, it would form a popular approach to set up a metadata. This paper offers this new concept to illustrate the new ideas, hoping that it can reduce the gap between current techniques and a willingness to create new ones. It also could create new meanings of knowledge management and cultural development. Source

Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the effects of Chinese herbs and acupuncture on the neuronal apoptosis and the expression of apoptosis-related genes in the brain tissue of rats following intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Methods: Collagenase VII was injected into the caudate nucleus of Sprague-Dawley rats to induce ICH. Chinese herbs (musk, borneol and tetrandrine) were intragastrically administered, and acupuncture was performed using Dazhui, Fengfu and Shuigou acupoints. Each group was further subdivided into 4 subgroups based on treatment duration (6-hour, 24-hour, 72-hour, and 1-week). Neurological impairment score, TUNEL assay and apoptotic markers, BCL-2, BAX, and caspase-3 were used to evaluate the apoptosis status after ICH and subsequent treatment. Results: Chinese herbal therapy and acupuncture improved neurological impairment compared with no therapy and sham-operated animals. Significant differences in TUNEL positive cells were found between treatment groups (p< 0.001) and over time (p< 0.001). Differential expression of BCL-2, BAX, and caspase-3 was observed between treatment groups (p =0.014 for BAX and < 0.05 for BCL-2 and caspase-3) and treatment duration groups (p =0.006 for BAX and < 0.05 BCL-2 and caspase-3). Conclusions: Results indicate that Chinese herbs and acupuncture may improve neural impairment and reduce apoptosis, although there was no difference between therapies in a rat model of ICH. Additional experiments are needed to further clarify the role of these therapies following ICH. © 2015. Source
