Performance of the Improvements of the CAESAR Robot
Riaan Stopforth,Glen Bright,Ronald Harley
International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems , 2010,
Abstract: Robots are able to enter concealed and unstable environments inaccessible to rescuers. Previous Urban Search And Rescue (USAR) robots have experienced problems with malfunction of communication systems, traction systems, control and telemetry. These problems were accessed and improved in developing a prototype robot called CAESAR, which is an acronym for Contractible Arms Elevating Search And Rescue. Problems encountered with previous USAR robots are discussed. The mechanical, sensory and communication systems that were used on CAESAR are briefly explained. Each system was separately tested by performed experiments. Results of field tests and the robot performance experienced during a disaster scenario that was created are discussed. The capabilities of CAESAR are explained in these tests to determine if some of the problems experienced previously are solved.
Portraits of Julius Caesar: a proposal for 3D analysis  [PDF]
Amelia Carolina Sparavigna
Computer Science , 2012,
Abstract: Here I suggest the use of a 3D scanning and rendering to create some virtual copies of ancient artifacts to study and compare them. In particular, this approach could be interesting for some roman marble busts, two of which are portraits of Julius Caesar, and the third is a realistic portrait of a man recently found at Arles, France. The comparison of some images indicates that a three-dimensional visualization is necessary.
Success for gene therapy: render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's
Jian Qiao, Rosa Diaz, Richard G Vile
Genome Biology , 2004, DOI: 10.1186/gb-2004-5-8-237
Abstract: "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.The evil that men do lives after them;The good is oft interred with their bones;So let it be with Caesar. The noble BrutusHath told you Caesar was ambitious;If it were so, it was a grievous fault,And grievously hath Caesar answer'd it."Mark Antony, in Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare.Recent findings have shown that that two young children treated by gene therapy to reverse their profound immune deficiency developed leukemia as a direct result of the experimental protocol [1,2]. These reports follow the tragic death of a young man after treatment with an adenoviral vector [3] and a more generalized sense of disappointment that the seemingly over-ambitious aspirations of gene therapists have not lived up to expectations. Against this backdrop, it is easy to feel a certain comradeship with Mark Antony, as he prepared to deliver his oration for the assassinated Emperor Julius Caesar in Rome. Brutus had just finished justifying to the assembled masses the apparently compelling reasons for the recent assassination based upon fears that Caesar's ambition had turned from nobility into dangerous liability. So it is now with gene therapy, where whispering voices suggest that the ambitions of this field have outstretched its capabilities. Even the likes of Mark Antony might struggle to marry compassionate appreciation of previous problems, which will no doubt recur, with the eloquence to convince an audience that this remains a discipline where remarkable advances have been achieved.The leukemias induced in two of ten children treated with gene therapy for an immuno-deficiency syndrome came as a double dagger blow to the heart of the gene-therapy field. These children were born with X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID-X1), which is caused by the genetic loss of the gene encoding common γ chain of the interleukin-2 receptor (IL-2Rγc) in mature γδT cells.

Van Wyk Louw in ligter luim
FIJ van Rensburg
Tydskrif vir letterkunde , 2006,
Abstract: N.P. van Wyk Louw in lighter vein. Throughout the years students of the work of N.P. van Wyk Louw tended to focus on its preoccupation with the “deeper” aspects of life, thereby losing sight of the wide spectrum of “surface” or lighter aspects contained in it, not only of a thematic, but also of a structural nature. Concentrating on the linguistic structure of a number of texts, a wide range of creative strategies based on playfulness was identified. The article explores this aspect of his work, particularly in his poetry, his theatrical work, and his reflective prose.
Facial transformations of ancient portraits: the face of Caesar  [PDF]
Amelia Carolina Sparavigna
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: Some software solutions used to obtain the facial transformations can help investigating the artistic metamorphosis of the ancient portraits of the same person. An analysis with a freely available software of portraitures of Julius Caesar is proposed, showing his several "morphs". The software helps enhancing the mood the artist added to a portrait.
Using Letters Frequency Analysis in Caesar Cipher with Double Columnar Transposition Technique.  [PDF]
Gaurav Shrivastava,Ravindra Sharma,Manorama Chouhan
International Journal of Engineering Sciences & Research Technology , 2013,
Abstract: In this paper we have some modification in Caesar Cipher Technique. We have proposed a method to enhancing the Caesar cipher for more efficient and secure. We use Relative Frequency of Letters in Alphabets. We arrange the sequence of letter according to the frequency in increasing ordered. And then we have made use of a Modified Caesar cipher technique with double Columnar Transposition Technique.
Human Virtues and Vices in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar
Bala Swamy
Indian Streams Research Journal , 2012,
Abstract: The exposition of human nature is at its zenith in Shakespeare's tragic and historical playJulius Caesar which has 'its magnificent scenes and memorable characters.'1 The play isa study of love, friendship and human relationships. It answers the questions like whydoes an honest man err? Why do friends misunderstand each other and go to the extent ofmurdering each other? Why even good qualities like bravery and truthfulness getpunished? The present article is a study of the concepts like honesty, bravery andjealousy which emerge from the play. These qualities are portrayed in the personalitiesof the major characters who become symbols of these qualities. Julius Caesar is adifferent kind of tragedy because here, all the major characters get killed whether goodor bad.

The physics of volume rendering  [PDF]
Thomas Peters
Physics , 2014, DOI: 10.1088/0143-0807/35/6/065028
Abstract: Radiation transfer is an important topic in several physical disciplines, probably most prominently in astrophysics. Computer scientists use radiation transfer, among other things, for the visualisation of complex data sets with direct volume rendering. In this note, I point out the connection between physical radiation transfer and volume rendering, and I describe an implementation of direct volume rendering in the astrophysical radiation transfer code RADMC-3D. I show examples for the use of this module on analytical models and simulation data.
