Does tuberculosis still exist?

Yes. Tuberculosis very well exists.Though TB is not prevalent in developed countries like USA, it remains a world-wide public health problem, 85% of all TB cases are in the region of South East Asia, Africa and Western Pacific.During the year 2008, there were approximately 9 million incident cases (new cases) globally with 11million prevalent (old + new) cases in the same year..with 1.8 million deaths!!HIV patients are most prone to TB. Out of the 11million cases mentioned above, 1.4 million were of HIV-associated TB.The main reason for TB to be so prevalent is poor socio-economic status, therefore malnutrition, low hygiene, overcrowding-leading to spread of diseases.The treatment regime is under DOTS (direct observed treatment short course) programme which is a 6 to 8months long course, which patients, unless counselled, don't tend to follow, in spite of being given free medicines..Other reasons are the side-effects of drugs.The major problem we face now is the emergence of multi drug resistance (MDR) TB (0.15 million deaths due to MDR-TB) and extensively drug resistant (XDR) TB(50,000 deaths), wherein the tubercle bacilli DO NOT respond to the drugs!!INDIA has the highest TB burden in the world, accounting for 20% of the global cases. Here, TB kills 0.32 million cases every year.

What is MSXML 6.0 parser?

Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) allows customers to build high-performance XML-based applications that provide a high degree of interoperability with other applications that adhere to the XML 1.0 standard. Among the core services MSXML provides is developer support for the following: * The Document Object Model (DOM), a standard library of application programming interfaces (APIs) for accessing XML documents. * Helper APIs to assist with programming for XML namespace or the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) when it is used to send data directly between Web servers. * The XML Data Reduced schema definition language (XDR), which Microsoft introduced support for to assist with XML schema working needs while awaiting the now final W3C standard XML Schema Definition (XSD) language. Support for XDR is available in MSXML 3.0 through MSXML 5.0. MSXML 6.0 does not support XDR. * The Simple API for XML (SAX), a programmatic alternative to DOM-based processing. * The Schema Object Model (SOM), an additional set of APIs for accessing XML Schema documents programmatically that was introduced in MSXML 4.0 and later. * XML Digital Signatures support, which provides the ability to sign and verify XML document data through digital encryption. This support is only available in MSXML 5.0 for Microsoft Office Applications. It was removed in MSXML 6.0.

How many bits is PS3 Xbox 360?

Nope ps3 128 xbox only 64 bit. The graphics processing unit, according to Nvidia, is based on the NVIDIA G70 (previously known as NV47) architecture. The GPU makes use of 256MB GDDR3 RAM clocked at 700 MHz with an effective transmission rate of 1.4 GHz[5] and up to 224MB of the 3.2 GHz XDR main memory via the CPU (480MB max).

What hardware was used to make the ps3?

The PS3 features a slot loading 2x blue ray disk drive. Available hard drive sizes are 20, 40, 60 and 80 GB. All PS3 models have user-upgradeable 2.5" SATA hard drives. The PS3 uses the IBM-designed Cell microprocessor as its CPU. The graphics card is the nVidia RSX 'Reality Synthesizer'. The PS3 has 256 MB of XDR main memory and 256 MB of GDDR3 video memory for the RSX. All of this information comes from Wikipedia, I .

How much memory does Grand Theft Auto 4 take on ps3?

Well, it takes about 800-900MB of memory,i think. Yes, i know that it has only 256MB on its GPU chip, but it gets another 256MB from XDR in the time of need,whcich is now 512MB. The GPU is overmemorable,so u can overmem it upto 250-350MB which now bwcomes 750-850MB. PS3 has an advanced 7800GT(or,RSX as renamed by SCEI)which can take u upto 900MB even with 256MB on it. I have a 7600GT 256MB, I play GTA 4, and i have done it on high profile.It takes 844MB.

A relative recently died suddenly while in the hospital and a toxicology report was not done because antibiotics were administered in the hospital What gives?

That's bull shark they hospital should have done a toxicology report its stranded procedure It depends greatly on the reason for hospitalization and whether the death was medically unexpected. Death is a known complication for a wide variety of conditions. Depending on state law, unless there is a public health concerns (such as XDR TB or SARS or something like that) or reason to believe a crime had been committed, most hospitalized patients never have any post-mortem examination or autopsy done. The attending physician simply places the presumed cause of death and signature on the death certificate. This also frequently happens in deaths outside the hospital if the patient has a known condition and is under active medical care for it.

Is the PlayStation 3 most powerful console?

When you look at the specs i believe the ps3 is a hair more powerful above the xbox 360 but it is not really noticeable The wii is in a whole different world when it comes to power ( way less than ps3 and xbox 360). The Xbox 360 utilizes a tricore Xenon processor clocked to 3.2GHz. While the PlayStation 3's Cell processor also runs at 3.2GHz, it instead has seven synergistic processing units, controlled by another power processing unit. Theoretically, the PlayStation 3 is thus more than twice as powerful as the Xbox 360. The PS3's Nvidia-developed Reality Synthesizer also runs at 550MHz compared to the 360's 500MHz ATI GPU. Finally, the PS3 has XDR RAM with speeds of 3.2GHz, identical to its CPU. On the other hand, the 360 uses the older GDDR3 RAM running at 700MHz. Your system is only as good as its worst component, so the 360 has already lost.

Is the 360 better than a PS3?

Actually the PS3 is better. I like the PS3 because it has better graphics and you have an internet browser built in. The online play is also free unlike the crappy Xbox 360. You also get built in Wi-Fi on the PS3 and for the crappy Xbox 360 you need to pay about 30 dollars extra for wireless internet. The PS3 plays blu-ray disks and the crappy Xbox 360 doesn't. You can use an HDMI cable for the PS3 so you can watch things in HD; the crappy Xbox 360 doesn't. As Sony says, "PS3...It only does EVERYTHING." I highly agree. The PlayStation 3 is superior to the Xbox 360 for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to more processing power. Whereas the 360 utilizes a tri-core CPU clocked to 3.2GHz, the PS3 has a Cell processor with seven cores clocked to 3.2GHz each, more than doubling its processing capabilities. The PS3 also uses the newer XDR DRAM, running at 3.2GHz, compared to the Xbox 360's 700MHz GDDR3 RAM, allowing it to render processes more quickly. The PlayStation 3 uses Bluetooth 2.0 for connectivity with its accessories, which unlike the RF of the 360, does not require line of sight for communication, allowing users to control the system from behind obstructions such as walls and cabinets. While the latest models of the Xbox 360 feature HDMI, it is of the older 1.2 profile, while the PS3 uses 1.3, which supports high-fidelity digital audio formats. Furthermore, the PlayStation 3 uses standard 2.5" notebook hard drives, allowing the user to install any capacity of storage they wish, unlike the Xbox 360's proprietary form factor. Most importantly, the PlayStation 3 also features definitive exclusives including Gran Turismo 5, Metal Gear Solid 4, Resistance 2, MAG, as well as the upcoming Killzone 3, SOCOM 4, and LittleBigPlanet 2. The above answer makes valid points and to expand the PS3 will now include the PS3 Move that uses the PS3 Move controller and the PS3 Eye Camera. The release of the Move on September 17 2010 will also include the release of the 320GB harddrive PS3 model available with the PS3 Move Bundle for USA price of $399.99. The Move will allow an even better platform for the creation of new Video Games. The PS3 320GB model will expand the ability to become more than just a game player with the additional storage space foe Video, pictures, and music. I will say the ps3 has good qualities but the 360 has fable, halo, gears of war , the 360 has better internet. To me they are kinda the same.

Where can you find a PlayStation 3 emulator?

There is no Ps3 emulator, its not possible at the moment.PS2 is still in a Beta state of development and the PS3 will require much more labor and development time.Fact emulation will never work as simple and trouble free as the original product was able to play the games. Different titles will never be able to be played without some of the titles requiring fine tuning.The answers below are not answers to the question when they do not tell where someone can find a PS3 emulation.Even Ps2 emulation is at working state, and it requires the best computer out there to run games at good speeds. Still every title is not playable and there definition of playable is that the game can be completed even if it takes time and effort If a Ps3 emulator could be made, it will require at least as long to develop as the PCSX2 has needed to be refined. The computer requirements will catch up as the product is developed, but the day has not arrivedYou would be quite amazed at what PcSX2 coders think about the idea.I would have to point a few of them:PCSX2 are the people who have been working over 10 years on the PS2 emulation program that is still in beta format1) There is not much information about the PS3 architecture, and how it works.2) In Emulation, the hardware requirements for a PC to emulate a console is a rough estimate of 10x.E.g. PSX has a tiny 33mhz cpu, and it requires a minimum of 400mhz to "run" psx games. Some games will still be slow, and you need more requirements if you need good graphics.3) PS3's Cell processor is a beast.CPU: Cell ProcessorPowerPC-base Core @3.2GHz1 VMX vector unit per core512KB L2 cache7 x SPE @3.2GHz7 x 128b 128 SIMD GPRs7 x 256KB SRAM for SPEThat's 7 x 3.2 GHz SPE alone..And Cell has more than that.So, according to the rough guess, you will need something like 7 x 40 GHz, and XDR Ram, and GPU capable of 18 TFLOPS @ 550 MHz, to emulate PS34) Think about the coders. Who will want to try such a nearly impossible task, especially when there isn't much info about the hardware?Answer: You can't because there isn't one at the moment.Correction all that's left is for someone to "translate" from ps3 code to pc we'll still need powerful pc's remember people If you look at all the psp emulators that work when people predicted we would need powerhouse pc's to emulate it. I have come across a few people that are working on ps3 and xbox 360 the 360 project was scrapped and left to die while work continues on ps3. So with any luck we'll have new coding some time next year it'll be a while before anyone can play commercial games but our intention is to run it through java. Try making your own emulator before claiming it's impossible. Weeks of coding and I've achieved 2fps on disgaea universe so time will tell. If we finish the project it will be posted here.All that's left is for the thing to be written tested developed and have the bugs worked out. PSP is an easy system like the PS1. PC's are powerhouses compared to what was around a decade agoAnswerThis is not really an answer, more like I wish we could because I thing they shouldI know They should develop a pc operation system for pxs 3 and be able to operate with all motherboard functions and extras like sound cards and video cards and usb ports (so you can hook up a controller). there's no way the pxs 3 needs all that computer power bye itself. All the microchips on its board are all in one. Think about it! I love to see that we could install a game system on our pc like we can install windows operating systems. What you people think?
