In this sequel to 'Escape from the Planet of the Apes' the year is 1991. Caesar (Roddy McDowall), the son of Zira and Cornelius, has been sheltered for 18 years by circus owner Armando (Ricardo Montalban). Following a plague which wiped out all cats and dogs, apes have been adopted as pets by humans, but when Caesar sees them being treated as slaves, he leads his brother simians in rebellion against their overlords.
After a series of killings in which everyday housewives are brutally mutilated, sound expert Paul White (David Keith) comes under suspicion by the police. In an attempt to prove his innocence, Paul sets out to track down the real killer, but soon even Paul's own wife, Joan (Cathy Moriarty), begins to have her doubts.
The definitive guide on state-of-the-art OCT angiography from leading worldwide experts OCT Angiography by David R. Chow and a cadre of renowned authors is an authoritative, richly illustrated guide on a groundbreaking new ophthalmic imaging technique. Optical coherence tomography angiography is revolutionizing ophthalmologic diagnosis and management of retinal disease. The technology is transforming the ocular disease diagnostic paradigm - from the retina to the choroid - enabling precision-tailored patient management. Noninvasive and more sophisticated than fluorescein angiography, OCTA obviates the need for dye and yields an unprecedented level of detail. The layered visualization of the retina and choroid vasculature delivers greater understanding of retinal disease. From sight-robbing eye diseases affecting millions such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma - to rare conditions like adult-onset vitelliform macular dystrophy, readers will glean insights on the capabilities of this remarkable innovation. Key Features Hands-on pearls from trailblazers who have pioneered and implemented the use of OCTA in clinical practice Dedicated chapters on AMD, diabetic retinopathy, retinal venous occlusions, arterial occlusions, central serous chorioretinopathy, macular telangiectasia type 2, adult-onset vitelliform macular dystrophy, and high myopia Expanding indications for uveitis, ocular oncology, radiation retinopathy, glaucoma, the anterior segment, as well as future applications Grand Rounds cases include a wealth of multimodal images and highly informative learning points This exceptional resource is a must-have for every ophthalmology resident and practitioner. The comprehensive text coupled with high quality illustrations will enable ophthalmologists to leverage the full potential of this technique in daily practice.
This box set contains all five films in the 'Planet of the Apes' series. In the original film, a group of Earth astronauts, led by Colonel George Taylor (Charlton Heston), are plunged nearly two thousand years into the future after passing through a time distortion. They crash land on a strange planet, where mute humans are treated as slaves by intelligent apes. In 'Beneath the Planet of the Apes', NASA send astronaut Brent (James Franciscus) on a rescue mission when Taylor's crew fail to return to Earth. Like Taylor, he is catapulted through time to the 'Ape' planet, where Taylor is now being held captive in the Forbidden Zone, an underground society whose telepathic mutant inhabitants dedicate their lives to their 'God': an atomic warhead. In 'Escape from the Planet of the Apes', the sympathetic chimps of the first two films, Zira (Kim Hunter) and Cornelius (Roddy McDowall), escape the nuclear devastation of the Earth by travelling back in time in Taylor's spaceship, arriving in Los Angeles in the year 1973. They are initially held in captivity in a zoo, but when they prove their intelligence they are released and hailed as celebrities. In 'Conquest of the Planet of the Apes', the year is now 1991. Following a plague which wiped out all cats and dogs, apes have been adopted as pets by humans, but when Zira and Cornelius' son Caesar (Roddy McDowall) sees them being treated as slaves, he leads his brother simians in rebellion against their overlords. 'Battle for the Planet of the Apes' opens in 2670 with the ape Lawgiver (John Huston) relating how, following the 1991 rebellion, mankind embarked on a terrible nuclear war. In the devastation which followed, Caesar and the apes seized control, ruling benevolently over the human survivors, and working to rebuild society. However, civil war was being fermented by ambitious gorilla general Aldo (Claude Akins). Also included is previously unseen footage and interviews with cast and crew members.
Given the drawbacks of leaving time-sensitive targeting (TST) strictly to humans, there is value to the investigation of alternative approaches to TST operations that employ autonomous systems. This paper accomplishes five things. First, it proposes a short-hop abbreviated routing paradigm (SHARP) -- based on Delaunay triangulations (DT), ad-hoc communication, and autonomous control -- for recognizing and engaging TSTs that, in theory, will improve upon persistence, the volume of influence, autonomy, range, and situational awareness. Second, it analyzes the minimum timeframe need by a strike (weapons enabled) aircraft to navigate to the location of a TST under SHARP. Third, it shows the distribution of the transmission radius required to communicate between an arbitrary sender and receiver. Fourth, it analyzes the extent to which connectivity, among nodes with constant communication range, decreases as the number of nodes decreases. Fifth, it shows the how SHARP reduces the amount of energy required to communicate between two nodes. Mathematica 184.108.40.206 is used to generate data for all metrics. JMP 220.127.116.11 is used to analyze the statistical nature of Mathematica's output.
Since the introduction of vitrectomy in the 1970s, vitreoretinal surgery has rapidly developed. Initially, new instrumentations were created to facilitate intraocular maneuvers and to treat almost all the vitreoretinal pathologies. High speed vitrectome probs, forceps, scissors, endolaser probes, and new light sources (xenon/photon light) permit us to perform safer surgeries.
However, in the last few years the approach to vitreoretinal surgery has changed with the introduction of small gauge instruments and sutureless surgery. At present there is still confusion among vitreoretinal surgeons about the use of 25-, 23- or 20-gauge sutureless systems.
Leading surgeons in the field were recruited to offer their insights into the sutureless techniques they perform.
Topics dealt with in the book include: - fluidics and technical characteristics of 23- and 25-gauge systems, - basic vitrectomy techniques of 23- and 25-gauge systems, - sclerotomy characteristics of the sutureless approach, - advantages and disadvantages of the sutureless technique, - vitreoretinal pathologies treated with 23- and 25-gauge systems, - complications of the sutureless technique, - current clinical data.
