Ghent University is a highly ranked Dutch-speaking public university located in Ghent, Belgium. It is one of the larger Flemish universities, consisting of 41,000 students and 9,000 staff members. The current rector is Anne De Paepe . As of 2014, Ghent University ranks as 90th globally according to Times Higher Education, 129th according to QS World University Rankings and 70th according to the Academic Ranking of World Universities. It is therefore considered to be a top university, globally.It was established in 1817 by King William I of the Netherlands. After the Belgian revolution of 1830, it was administered by the newly formed Belgian state. French became the academic language until 1930, when Ghent University became the first Dutch-speaking university in Belgium. In 1991, the university was granted major autonomy and changed its name from State University of Ghent to its current name. Wikipedia.

A device is described for analyzing electrocardiogram data. The device comprises processing means for comparing at least one parameter derived from a temporal sequence of electrocardiogram data a previously recorded distribution of that parameter obtained from the user under a plurality of different physiological conditions. Based on the comparison, a signal representative of a risk of a myocardial infarction occurring in the body of the user is provided. A corresponding method, device and computer application for installing on a user device are also described.

Described herein is a feed forward equalizer that is configured to operate in a normal operational mode and in a test operational mode. The feed forward equalizer has an input port and an output port which are used for the normal operational mode. A test input port and a test output port are provided in the feed forward equalizer, and are used for the test operational mode. Buffers may be provided for matching the impedance of respective ones of the input, output, test input, and test output ports. The feed forward equalizer allows testing during development, and once mounted in an integrated circuit, without interfering with the normal operational mode.

Regulated cell death has essential functions in development and in adult tissue homeostasis. Necroptosis is a newly discovered pathway of regulated necrosis that requires the proteins RIPK3 and MLKL and is induced by death receptors, interferons, toll-like receptors, intracellular RNA and DNA sensors, and probably other mediators. RIPK1 has important kinase-dependent and scaffolding functions that inhibit or trigger necroptosis and apoptosis. Mouse-model studies have revealed important functions for necroptosis in inflammation and suggested that it could be implicated in the pathogenesis of many human inflammatory diseases. We discuss the mechanisms regulating necroptosis and its potential role in inflammation and disease. Source

A method for providing chunked content to a device having a streaming client, chunked content defined on the basis of a manifest file having chunk identifiers and associated chunk locators for locating delivery nodes configured to deliver chunks identified by the chunk identifiers. Whether a chunk identified by a chunk identifier in a chunk request message originating from the client can be delivered by a first delivery node is determined, the request message including a first network address associated with the first node. If the first node cannot deliver the chunk to the client, the first address is rewritten into a second network address associated with a delivery node capable of delivering the chunk before sending the request message to the second node. Before sending a chunk response message associated with the request message to the client, the second address in the response message is rewritten into the first address.
