Drug Therapy for Type 2 Diabetes

It is estimated that there are nearly 350 million adults with diabetes. Type 2 diabetes accounts for over 90% of this burden. The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) estimates that diabetes resulted in almost 4 million deaths in 2007. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that the number of people affected worldwide will grow to more than 470 million by 2030, the majority in low to middle-income countries. A powerful dose association exists between obesity and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes (Figure 1.1). The WHO estimates that more than 1 billion adults are over their ideal body weight, at least 300 million of them being clinically obese. The prevention of type 2 diabetes is a pressing public health issue. Translating the results of studies that have shown that intensive lifestyle measures i.e. weight reduction and increased levels of physical activity, can avert or postpone progression to diabetes is a formidable challenge.

HTML5 Guidelines for Web Developers (2011)

HTML4 six years before and had instead elected to back XHTML, XForms, SVG, and SMIL, it was hardly surprising that this suggestion was rejected. The result was very close, with 8 votes in favor and 11 votes against, but the decision still had far-reaching consequences. In the following years, the development of HTML5 was to take place in direct competition with the W3C. Ian Hickson, who at the time supported the position paper, together with the second Opera representative HÃ¥kon Wium Lie and Mozilla’s David Baron, reviewed the events in his web log and came to the conclusion: The issues have been discussed, the positions have been given, everyone knows where everyone else stands, now it’s time to get down and actually start doing work.

Apress Windows 8 XAML Primer

The book tackles the major issues that you’ll need to understand in order to get started if you’re a XAML and C# programmer that wants to get down to business building your first Windows 8 apps. Does it tell you about the new UX requirements? No. Does it teach you C#? No. Does it mess around with unnecessary editorials on the importance of Windows 8 in rebooting the developer ecosystem with 400M pairs of eyeballs (800M eyeballs altogether) looking for your apps? No! It assumes that you’ve done your share of the umpteen Microsoft marketing presentations that lay out the fluff and are ready to get down to the gruff. He lays out what the tools are, how to use them, and how to sling the code you need to do on Windows 8: using the project templates in both Visual Studio and Blend, making something useful appear on the screen, binding your data to your controls, laying out your data on the screen, styling your data, and animating the display of your data.
