Training neural networks with deficient data
Second World Congress on Spina Bifida Research and Care | Original Link
Vitamin D deficiency is common in children. However, children with Spina Bifida (SB) may have unique predisposing factors to Vitamin D deficiency such as immobility leading to decreased sun exposure, dietary limitations, and chronic kidney disease. Children with SB have higher rates of fractures than other children, with risk factors including higher level of neurologic defect, decreased sensation, osteopenia, and non-ambulatory status.
Researchers at Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School conducted a retrospective chart review of patients in the Children’s Hospital Boston Myelodysplasia Program from 1999 to October 2011, age 1 month to 19 years old to determine the prevalence of Vitamin D deficiency among children and adolescents with SB and to determine the relation between Vitamin D status and fracture risk. Data on the first 250 subjects was presented (108 male, 142 female). Of those 250, data was available for 166.

The chart above shows the deficit rose to a whopping US$166.2 billion for the second quarter of 2004. Annualized, that's $664.8 billion, or approaching 6.5% of US gross domestic product. As bad as this seems, it will probably get worse before it gets better. We are locked into a set of "daunting arithmetic", says Richard Berner, an economist with Morgan Stanley. He says, "The daunting arithmetic locks the current-account gap into a vicious circle that is hard to escape." Berner cites several reasons he thinks the deficit will get worse:1) Imports of goods, services and income are 40% bigger than exports. And this ratio is on the rise again.2) Higher US interest rates will increase debt payments to foreign debt holders.3) Iraq war and redevelopment.4) Slowdown in global growth,...
That plan is already in the works2007-06-11 17:33:56 by welcome2MexiCanAmerica
"Quietly but systematically, the Bush Administration is advancing the plan to build a huge NAFTA Super Highway, four football-fields-wide, through the heart of the U.S. along Interstate 35 from the Mexican border at Laredo, Tex., to the Canadian border north of Duluth, Minn."
"The proposed highway is part of a broader plan advanced by a quasi-government organization called the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, or SPP.
The SPP was first launched in 2005 by the heads of state of Canada, Mexico, and the United States at a summit in Waco.
The SPP was not created by a treaty between the nations involved, nor was Congress involved in any way. Instead, the SPP is an...

The dollar hovered near a three-month low against the euro on Thursday, as investors continued to shun the U.S. currency on a firming view that the Federal Reserve could take its time raising interest rates.
The dollar's decline was an extension of the sell-off sparked by Friday's weaker-than-expected U.S. payrolls data and Tuesday's report showing a slower pace of expansion in the U.S. service sector.
Such data bolstered the case that the Fed may be less aggressive than previously thought in following up its recent raising of interest rates -- the first in four years.
"Just a few weeks ago we were faced with a strong U.S. economy, rising inflation, and the prospect of sharply higher interest rates, but last week's jobs data has thrown that scenario somewhat into...
