Risk of myocardial infarction and overall mortality in survivors of venous thromboembolism

Risk of myocardial infarction and overall mortality in survivors of venous thromboembolism

For the mortality analysis, individuals with a history of ischaemic heart disease prior to the start date were not excluded, but follow-up was started 1 month after the epi- sode of VTE as before. (Data for patients who died within the first month of the VTE diagnosis have been presented elsewhere [11].) The VTE cohort consisted of 5801 patients and the control cohort consisted of 48 399 patients. Patients were followed until death, age of 80 years or the end of the study period (31 December 2002).

'The affirmation of Behan?' : an understanding of the politicisation process of the Provisional Irish Republican Movement through an organisational analysis of splits from 1969 to 1997

The start date of the research, 1969, is resonant within Irish Republicanism for a number of different reasons, one being the failure of the Goulding leadership of the IRA and Sinn Fein [r]

Fire Regime Attributes of Wildland Fires in Yosemite National Park, USA

Fire Regime Attributes of Wildland Fires in Yosemite National Park, USA

We chose to evaluate six of the seven fi re regime attributes described by Sugihara et al. (2006): seasonality, return interval, size, spatial complexity, intensity, and severity. Fire type (ground, surface, or crown fi re) was not considered because historic data on type were not available. In addition to fi re return interval for each fi re, we also calculated fi re rotation for the vegetation zones. We used start date and duration to depict seasonality and the burning index to represent fi re line intensity. We determined fi re size, return interval, rotation, severity, and spatial complexity from the satellite-derived fi re severity maps. We used mean patch size (MPS) and patch squareness (SqP) to represent spatial complexity (Frohn 1998). Mean patch size is a measure of fragmentation, and patch squareness is a measure of complexity. Patch squareness is an index that runs from 0 for square, minimally complex patches, to 1 for patches that were least square-like and highly complex. Unlike contagion and fractal dimension, MPS and SqP are optimized for use with data arranged in rasters, as with Landsat data (Frohn 1998).

On the Importance of a Date, or, Decolonizing the Anthropocene

On the Importance of a Date, or, Decolonizing the Anthropocene

how we understand how we got here, where we might like to be headed, and what we need to do. We make the case for colonialism as the start date of the Anthropocene for two reasons: the first is to open up the geologic questions and implications of the Anthropocene beyond the realm of Western and European epistemology to think with Indigenous knowledges from North America; the second is to make a claim that to use a date that coincides with colonialism in the Americas allows us to understand the current state of ecological crisis as inherently invested in a specific ideology defined by proto-capitalist logics based on extraction and accumulation through dispossession – logics that continue to shape the world we live in and that have produced our current era. We focus on North America because that is the place that both of us currently live and have grown up in. We recognize that to be taken seriously by the IGC we would need to propose a date that could be seen as having a global impact, but we refuse to write from an un-embodied or universal position, and by writing from where we know, we hope we can connect to other histories that are beyond the scope of this article and to incite further reflection from other parts of the world. We see this article as one part of a broader collaborative intervention into the current universalist (read: Eurocentric) discourses of the Anthropocene, hopefully making space for further discussions about the Anthropocene and its impacts from other oppressed and marginalized communities. Further, in making this claim, we are aligning ourselves with the date that Simon Lewis and Mark Maslin propose, what they call the ‘Orbis Spike’ of 1610. 5

Syntropic Criterion for Removing Restrictions During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Syntropic Criterion for Removing Restrictions During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Abstract: A new – syntropic – criterion obtained using the synergetic theory of information has been proposed for determining the start date for the cancellation of restrictive measures in the COVID-19 pandemic. Under this criterion, the restrictions should be lifted when the average number of new cases per day during a week becomes disproportionately smaller than at the peak of the pandemic. The article gives the derivation of this criterion, and its practical use is shown by the example of a number of EU countries. In this case, a comparison is made of the dates set by the syntropic criterion with the actual dates of the beginning of the lifting of restrictions.

HbA1c values and hospital admissions in children and adolescents receiving continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion therapy

HbA1c values and hospital admissions in children and adolescents receiving continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion therapy

In our previous study, there was a reduction in hypoglycaemia-related hospital admissions after the start of CSII, whilst DKA admissions remained stable. In the present study, we found that severe hypoglycaemia incidence did not change and DKA increased with CSII therapy. The median (range) pre-CSII start follow-up period (time between earliest recorded HbA 1c to CSII start date) was shorter than the follow-up period after CSII initiation [0.8

A Case Study of Assertions for the Iron Age and Implications for Temporal Metadata Creation

A Case Study of Assertions for the Iron Age and Implications for Temporal Metadata Creation

Surprisingly for the EM list, most of the sources do pin the first part of the Iron Age to around 1200 BC or sometime in the 12 th c. BC. According to Finkelstein’s low chronology for Tel Dan (as cited by Bruins et al., 2011), the first part of the Iron Age does not begin until 1000, though. In another low chronology of the Levant, the start of the Iron Age, Early Iron I, begins in 1109 (Finkelstein & Piasetzky, 2010). Greece differs slightly by beginning the Early Iron Age around 1050 BC (Dickinson, 2006) or 1000 BC (Whitley, 2001). For the Anatolian Iron Age, one definition begins the period earlier at 1250 BC in the eastern part of the region (Çevik, 2008). The 1200 BC start date for the Iron Age writ large is more in line with the dates in the EM list than those in the UKE list for the United Kingdom. However, by providing dates at all for the beginning of the Iron Age broadly defined, the AAT has opened up a can of worms.

Technical Note: Seasonality in alpine water resources management – a regional assessment

Technical Note: Seasonality in alpine water resources management – a regional assessment

For computing the seasonality in alpine water resources man- agement, a GIS-multicriteria approach is chosen to make it possible to account for on the one hand the base water de- mand and on the other hand the two principal seasonal wa- ter demand stakeholders snow-making and tourism in rela- tionship to their claimed water resources. The fundamental datasets for this analysis are the mean snow cover start date (SCOV6190 S) and end date (SCOV6190 E) rasters. Mul- ticriteria decision making is defined as choosing among al- ternatives based on a set of evaluation criteria (Malczewski, 1999). Multicriteria decision analysis using GIS applies a

Forward implied volatility expansion in time-dependent local
          volatility models*,**,***

Forward implied volatility expansion in time-dependent local volatility models*,**,***

Abstract. We introduce an analytical approximation to efficiently price forward start options on eq- uity in time-dependent local volatility models as the forward start date, the maturity or the volatility coefficient are small. We use a conditional expectation argument to represent the price as an expecta- tion of a Black-Scholes formula computed with a stochastic implied volatility depending on the value of the equity at the forward date. Then we perform a volatility expansion to derive an analytical approximation of the forward implied volatility with a precise error estimate. We also illustrate the accuracy of the formula with some numerical experiments. Some results and tools of this work were presented at the conference SMAI 2013 in the mini-symposium ”M´ ethodes asymptotiques en finance”.
