Extractions: View the Resource Directory with frames Last updated: April 19, 1997 Children with rare genetic diseases present unique and daunting challenges to the entire family. Sympathy may be easy to find, but empathy and understanding seem far too scarce. Finding information, consolement and a vehicle for voicing concerns and frustration is important and healthy. Fortunately, these sources of support exist on the Internet and in our communities. This section of Rare Genetic Diseases In Children hopes to provide such a linkage. Hospice, Death and Dying An unfortunate aspect of some of these diseases is death and the realization that it may be imminent. To assist in this transition Hospice organizations may be found throughout the country. Below are some sites that will point you to the help you and your family will need if and when the eventuality arises. American Hospice Association

Extractions: The University of Sheffield Evolutionary Computation Research Group Research Interests Genetic Algorithms for Scheduling ... Links There are currently many researchers working with Genetic Algorithms for Production Scheduling. Problems in this area include the optimisation of production schedules and process plans, balancing of work loads, job-shop scheduling problems, and other problems related to the management of complex industrial production systems. Researchers on these problems may need to take in a diverse range of ideas, from management science, manufacturing technology, mathematics, computing, and of course, genetic algorithm theory. The GA-Scheduling mailing list exists as a forum for discussion on the problems and applications of this work.

The idea of a clearing house was first proposed in New Zealand in 1995, however similar organisations have been in existence overseas for some time. The Swedish Council on Technology Assessment in Health Care (SBU) was founded in 1987 while centres at York (NHS Centre for Reviews and Dissemination) and Canada (Canadian Coordinating Office for Health Technology Assessment) were developed in the early 1990s. There are now over 20 similar organisations worldwide comprising the International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment. These Clearing Houses have been developed as a result of several common themes evident in health care systems throughout the world. Firstly a global disquiet has arisen with increasing evidence of significant variations in the rates of health interventions within different countries. These variations seem to be unexplained by any differences in the local populations but seem more likely to be due to marked differences in provider behaviour. Another parallel trend is the growing evidence-based medicine movement amongst some health care workers that has redefined the need for rational and authoritative decision making by clinicians and policy makers. As a result a need has arisen amongst all the organisations that are responsible for funding health care for them to have available rigorous and systematic reviews of the effectiveness of interventions, to assist them to develop policies that will improve the health status of their country's populations.
Extractions: Recommendations The SDPD Mailing List Homepage is at http://www.cristal.org/sdpd/ Welcome and Historical Following is the Homepage for the Structure Determination by Powder Diffractometry (SDPD) mailing list. This mailing list on the internet is free (no cost) and is open to all. It was created especially for people who are either involved or curious about methods for crystal structure determination from powder diffraction data. Originally, discussions on this topic were included in the Rietveld Mailing List (see archives ). Those previous discussions led to the SDPD Round Robin (May-June 1998) about which all details are available on the Web . But, if all SDPD experts use the Rietveld method in the ultimate structure refinement stage, not all Rietveld method users are interested in the huge list of SDPD sub-topics. So that a web-based SDPD forum was first open which had a limited success probably because there was no email distribution : subscribers had to go to the web pages and see if there was a new discussion. With this new SDPD Mailing List, subscribers will receive the latest news about their favourite occupation in their mailbox. Topics for discussion include (but are not limited to) Hunting peak positions

Extractions: [OBJECTIVE SCIENCE.COM] Next week in Toronto, the annual meeting of the Biotechnology Industry Organization will take place, amid protests by environmentalists who want to prohibit genetic engineering. This is a conflict between the creators of a technology that has saved countless lives and improved countless moreand the movement that is opposed to this new technology on principle. Consider one of the earliest genetically engineered inventions: bacteria with human genes that produce insulin that keeps millions of diabetic Americans alive. Or consider "golden rice," genetically engineered to have an increased content of beta-carotene, which our bodies transform into vitamin A. More than a hundred million people around the world suffer from lack of this vitamin. Every year half a million children become blind and another million die from vitamin A deficiency. Golden rice may help prevent that. Yet the Institute of Science in Society, a London-based environmentalist group, demands the prohibition of golden rice, calling it a "most heinous abomination."

JGAP: The Java Genetic Algorithms Package section to learn more about genetic algorithms and discussion amongst the JGAP developers concerning future and in these details private, you can email the JGAP http://jgap.sourceforge.net/
Extractions: PROJECT DETAILS JGAP (pronounced "jay-gap") is a genetic algorithms component written in the form of a Java package. It provides basic genetic mechanisms that can be easily used to apply evolutionary principles to problem solutions. JGAP has been written to be very easy to use "out of the box," while also designed to be highly modular so that more adventurous users can easily plug-in custom genetic operators and other sub-components. Genetic algorithms (GAs) are evolutionary algorithms that use the principle of natural selection to evolve a set of solutions toward an optimum solution. GAs are not only very powerful, but are also very easy to use as most of the work can be encapsulated into a single component, requiring users only to define a fitness function that is used to determine how "good" a particular solution is relative to other solutions. Please see the various introductory documents in the documentation section to learn more about genetic algorithms and how to use JGAP.
