Epilepsia | Year: 2010

Encephalitis is generally presumed, even when seizures follow banal febrile infection, and pathogen detection in cerebrospinal fluid fails. This retrospective multicenter case series reports on 22 previously healthy children aged 3-15 years (median 6.5 years) with prolonged or recurrent seizures occurring 2-14 days (median 5 days) after fever onset (19 children with respiratory or nonspecific infections). Cerebrospinal fluid studies revealed 2-42 cells/μl (median 5 cells/μl) and no pathogens. Electroencephalography showed diffuse slowing or multifocal discharges. Neuroimaging demonstrated normal findings in 10 children. Brain biopsies were performed in seven children showing gliosis but no inflammation. Anesthetic barbiturates were used in 14 children with refractory status epilepticus, and immunotherapy in 9. Two children died, eight remained in a state of impaired consciousness, eight developed therapy-refractory epilepsies, two had behavioral disturbances, and two recovered. The lack of evidence for encephalitis suggests another infection-related pathogenesis of this disastrous epileptic encephalopathy. Therefore, we propose the term "febrile infection-related epilepsy syndrome" (FIRES). © 2010 International League Against Epilepsy.

The paper presents a study on developing an effective reservoir operation policy by using artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm. The decision maker of a reservoir system always needs a guideline to operate the reservoir in an optimal way. Such guidelines named 'release curves' have developed for high-, medium-, and low-inflow category that can answer how much water needs to be released for a month by observing the reservoir level (storage condition). The Aswan High Dam of Egypt has been considered for the case study. For comparing the model efficiency, another heuristic approach-genetic algorithm (GA)-has been used. So far, GA is well established and most popular in reservoir release optimization. Historical inflow data for 18 years have been used for simulation purpose, and the general system performance-measuring indices (such as reliability, resiliency, and vulnerability) have been measured. The application procedure and problem formulation of ABC are very simple and can be used in optimizing reservoir system. After using the actual historical inflow, the release policy succeeded in meeting demand for about 98 % of the total time period. According to the simulation results, ABC algorithm showed better performance than the GA approach in reservoir release optimization. © 2013 Springer-Verlag London.

The purpose of this study is to predict the stability of slope using adaptive neuro fuzzy inference system (ANFIS). Based on limit equilibrium theory, four different methods of analyses, i.e. Morgenstern-Price, Janbu, Bishop and Ordinary were used to calculate the overall safety factor of various slope designs. Neuro-fuzzy inference system was used to map from a given input to an output. Important parameters such as height of slope (H), unit weight of soil (γ), angle of slope (θ), coefficient of cohesion (c) and internal angle of friction (φ) were used as the input parameters while overall safety factor was the output. ANFIS model to predict the stability of the slopes was generated from the calculated data. Results showed that factors of safety predicted using ANFIS agreed well with factors of safety calculated using Limit Equilibrium Methods (LEM). © (2011) Trans Tech Publications.

Improvement in the effectiveness and competitiveness of Malaysian SMEs (Small Medium Enterprises) in the global market is very important, because these SMEs an essential role in the Malaysian economic growth. The ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) is a significant tool to increase the effectiveness and competitiveness the SMEs. The ERP enhances the efficiency of the whole business operations in an organization and increase the optimal income. Nevertheless the due to various reasons the implementation of the ERP has not been successful in many organizations and hence its success rate of implementation is quite low. A lot of researchers have identified the factors that constitute towards the successful implementation of the ERP. It has been identified that majority of the SMEs tend to refrain from adopting the ERPs due to the cost and complex implementation factor. In this paper, the authors have developed and proposed an efficient methodology that enables successful implementation of ERP system in SMEs. The aim of this paper provides a platform to accomplish the objectives of ERP system. However for the purpose developing ERP systems to suit the needs of Malaysian manufacturing SMEs a new methodology is required. Hence this paper proposes a methodology that comprises two main methods: (1) preliminary study which includes two quantitative questionnaires, current status questionnaire and readiness assessment questionnaire; and (2) system development method which includes four phases that make up the ERP system development method are: analysis and definition, design, construction, and evaluation stages. © 2005 - 2013 JATIT & LLS.

While it comes to "Sustainable design", it's usually defined by the concepts like energy consumption optimization, natural sources utilization and environmental protection. Despite of designers focus on these requirements, the financial issues could also affect the sustainability of a design. When a worker injured or dead, it has a direct effect on the financial aspect of the sustainable design beside it is obviously in contradiction to the green design principals. So it may provide a design with the most sustainability when the occupational safety and health, energy conversation and environmental protection come together. To help designers in PtD, a variety of tools have been developed. The newest category of tools are 3D(three-dimensional) and 4D computer-aided-design(CAD) models and Building Information Modeling (BIM) technologies which assist in visualizing 3D components to detect interferences between building systems and spatial-temporal workspace conflicts during construction. This research assessed perceptions about the impact of the implementation of 3D/4D BIM on construction safety. A qualitative survey with a response rate of 62 completed surveys, and based on Iran's construction incidents distribution and happened incidents percentage in 7 primary accident's category, showed that 75% of the respondents thought that construction accidents can be eliminated or lessened through using 3D/4D BIM. The highest three ranking in order of most preventable category of accidents were falls from height, cuts or blows from objects and tools, and thermal contacts or electrical shocks. Beside the safe design idea, sustainable design can also be developed and improved with design suggestions in combination of new design for safety tools and technologies like 3D/4D virtual construction and BIM. This will make ease in correct choices among different designing options and in some cases even would be ended in the new design suggestions. © 2012 ASCE.
