The New York Times best-selling author of the acclaimed Dark Invasion channels Erik Larson and Ben Macintyre in this riveting biography of Betty Pack, the dazzling American debutante who became an Allied spy during WWII and was hailed by OSS chief general "Wild Bill" Donovan as "the greatest unsung heroine of the war". Betty Pack was charming, beautiful, and intelligent - and she knew it. As an agent for Britain's MI6 and then America's OSS during World War II, these qualities proved crucial to her success. This is the remarkable story of this "Mata Hari from Minnesota" (Time) and the passions that ruled her tempestuous life - a life filled with dangerous liaisons and death-defying missions vital to the Allied victory. For decades much of Betty's career working for MI6 and the OSS remained classified. Through access to recently unclassified files, Howard Blum discovers the truth about the attractive blond, codenamed "Cynthia", who seduced diplomats and military attachés across the globe in exchange for ciphers and secrets; cracked embassy safes to steal codes; and obtained the Polish notebooks that proved key to Alan Turing's success with Operation Ultra. Beneath Betty's cool, professional determination, Blum reveals a troubled woman conflicted by the very traits that made her successful: her lack of deep emotional connections and her readiness to risk everything. The Last Goodnight is a mesmerizing, provocative, and moving portrait of an exceptional heroine whose undaunted courage helped to save the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tristan Morris.

This book emphasize on Epilepsy which is a neurological disorder with preponderance of about 1-2% of the world's population. It is due to excessive synchronization of cortical neuronal networks and is characterized by sudden recurrent and transient disturbances of perception or behavior. Epileptic seizures are classified as partial or focal, generalized, unilateral and unclassified seizures. Focal epileptic seizures involve only part of cerebral hemisphere and in corresponding parts of the body. Generalized epileptic seizures involve the entire brain and produce bilateral motor symptoms usually with loss of consciousness. Both types of epileptic seizures can occur at all ages.One of the most important tools for diagnosing Epilepsy includes monitoring brain activity through the electroencephalogram (EEG). The EEG signature is transient waveform of isolated spikes, spike trains.It also assists in classifying the underlying epileptic syndrome. The feature extraction is done by Independent Component Analysis (ICA) and final risk level classification is done by Hidden Markov Model (HMM). Performance evaluation is done by Kappa function and Mean Square Error (MSE).
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Sanitization (also 'redaction') is the process of removing sensitive information from a document or other medium, so that it may be distributed to a broader audience. When dealing with classified information, sanitization attempts to reduce the document's classification level, possibly yielding an unclassified document. Originally, the term sanitization was applied to printed documents, it has since been extended to apply to computer media and the problem of data remanence as well. Redaction generally refers to the editing or blacking out of text in a document, or to the result of such an effort. It is intended to allow the selective disclosure of information in a document while keeping other parts of the document secret.

The Paragon XP/S was a productized version of the experimental Touchstone Delta system built at Caltech, launched in 1992. The Paragon superseded Intel's earlier iPSC/860 system, to which it was closely related.The Paragon series was based around the Intel i860 RISC microprocessor. Up to 2048 (later, up to 4000) i860s were connected in a 2D grid. In 1993, an entry-level Paragon XP/E variant was announced with up to 32 compute nodes. The system architecture was a partitioned system, with the majority of the system comprising diskless compute nodes and a small number of I/O nodes interactive service nodes. Since the bulk of the nodes had no permanent storage, it was possible to "Red/Black switch" the compute partition from classified to unclassified by disconnecting one set of I/O nodes with classified disks and then connecting an unclassified I/O partition.

The technical details of most NSA-approved systems are still classified, but much more about its early systems has become known and its most modern systems share at least some features with commercial products.Rotor machines from the 1940s and 1950s were mechanical marvels. The first generation electronic systems were quirky devices with cantankerous punch card readers for loading keys and failure-prone, tricky-to-maintain vacuum tube circuitry. Late 20th century systems are just black boxes, often literally. In fact they are called blackers in NSA parlance because they convert classified signals (red) into unclassified signals (black).

Roads in Ireland are currently classified as motorways, National Primary routes, National secondary routes, Regional roads and Local roads. The introduction of this classification system began in 1977.Prior to this, Ireland had a different road classification and numbering system. Roads fell into three categories: T (Trunk Roads), L (Link Roads) and unclassified roads. The origins of this system lie in pre-independence legislation: the preliminary section of Statutory Instrument S.I. No. 55/1926 Road Signs and Traffic Signals Regulations, 1926states that the Ministry of Transport Act, 1919 gave the Minister for Local Government and Public Health the power to assign a "route letter and number" to a road, while Section 6.4 of Part I of the Regulations specifies the positioning of the "route letter and the number of the road" on directional signs.
Renal cell carcinoma accounts for 3% of all human malignant tumors and 90-95% of neoplasms arising from the kidney proving a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. According to the First International Workshop on Renal Cell Carcinoma held by the World Health Organization, Renal cell carcinoma can be classified into Conventional or Clear cell renal carcinoma (Papillary renal carcinoma, Chromophobe renal carcinoma, Collecting duct renal carcinoma, Medullary renal carcinoma) and Unclassified renal carcinoma. The behavior of renal cell carcinoma apparently depends on its subtype with some subtypes having comparatively favourable prognosis while others having grave, therefore, precise prediction of the subtype preoperatively may be helpful in planning appropriate treatment options and estimating the prognosis of patients. CT Scan has been widely used for the evaluation of Renal cell carcinoma because it can provide detailed information about the tumor itself, its subtypes and also regarding its precise extension.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Road transport in Kenya consists a total of 63,265 kilometres (39,311 mi) of interurban roads, 8,933 km of which are paved and 54,332 km unpaved. There is over 100,000 kilometres (62,000 mi) of rural roads and 14,500 kilometres (9,000 mi) of urban roads, creating a total road infrastructure of 177,765 kilometres (110,458 mi) (2004). Kenya has one of the best paved highway networks and some of the busiest roads south of the Sahara, but maintenance is often neglected. The road system is constituted by three classified road types, as well as unclassified roads and tracks.
