    Severan Marble Plan of Rome data files

    Get PDF
    In its original state, the Severan Marble Plan of Rome, placed on the wall of the Temple of Peace between 203 and 211 CE, showed viewers the locations of buildings throughout Rome, and even the groundplan of each of those buildings. It is today an extraordinary piece of evidence for understanding the city in that time period, despite its ruinous state. It survives in over 1,100 fragments, representing only about 10% of its original surface area. To date, scholars have successfully placed only about 100 of those fragments with respect to the buildings they depict. Using GIS and CAD software, I have digitized those fragments whose locations are known and placed them in their appropriate positions over a topographical map and satellite image of the modern city. The file is geo-referenced using the UTM coordinate system, so that the photos and drawings correspond to real-world coordinates. I correlated the placement of individual buildings with excavated remains. Scholars have long known that there are surveying errors on the Plan, though there is disagreement about the number and extent of those errors. One advantage of digitization is its flexibility; one can not only adjust the placement of any individual fragment for greater accuracy, but can also change the spacing and orientation of different buildings on a single fragment. This project gives the most precise understanding yet of the surveying and cartographic methods employed on the Plan, and it allows for the ready integration of future information from newly excavated remains. The included documents consist of .TIF raster files showing the fragments from La pianta marmorea di Roma antica, by Carettoni, Colini, Cozza, and Gatti (1960); a rectified 1980’s-era Soviet satellite image of the city; a scan of a 1:25,000 military map made by the Italian Istituto Geografico Militare published in 1949; the .DWG file with all of the above placed in it, along with vector layers showing the edges of map fragments and the carvings on the maps. There is also a PDF export of the .DWG file with layers, and a PDF document explaining the project.

    Toxicity and Cosmesis Outcomes for Single Fraction Intra-Operative Electron Radiotherapy (IOERT) for Breast Cancer

    Background: Adjuvant radiation therapy is proven to reduce local recurrence in patients with early stage breast cancer. To reduce toxicity, improve geographic accuracy, and reduce treatment time, IOERT can be utilized as an alternative to external beam radiation therapy. The study‚Äôs objective was to determine the short term toxicity and cosmesis profile of single fraction IOERT given as definitive treatment in a community setting. Materials and Methods: From Mar 2012 to Jul 2014, 84 patients (3 bilateral), ages 45-91 y.o. with stage 0-II were treated with IOERT (Mobetron, IntraOp Medical, Sunnyvale, CA). A single 21 Gy fraction was administered to the tumor bed after resection. IOERT was delivered using 4.5 ‚Äď 6 cm applicators with electron energies from 6-12 MeV. At 2w, 6mo and 12mo, toxicity was assessed according to CTCAE Version 4.0 (range 0-4) and cosmesis based on a scale derived for national trials. Results: The median pathologic tumor size was 13 mm (4 tumors \u3e 25mm) with 34 tumors being IDC, 4 ILC, 20 DCIS, and 29 mixed histologies. After the initial resection with IOERT, 85 breasts had a negative margin. Two required re-excision due to positive margins. 65 SLN biopsies were completed, 61 were negative, 4 positive (1 completion ALND). Median follow up was 57.1 weeks. Toxicity (Grade at 2 weeks, 6 months, and 12 months in %): 0: 49, 69, 62 1: 44, 29, 35 2: 7, 2, 3 Cosmesis(Appearance at 2 weeks, 6 months, 12 months in %): Excellent: 71, 86, 79 Good: 28, 14, 21 Fair: 1, 0, 0 *No patients had a toxicity of 3 or 4; or a cosmesis of poor. Conclusion: Single fraction IOERT was well tolerated by all patients with no grade 3+ toxicity up to 12 months. At one year, 97% of patients had 0-1 grade toxicity and 100% of patients had excellent or good cosmesis. This treatment, consistent with current reports, meets critical criteria for incorporation into practice and reduces treatment by 3-6 weeks

    This is a revised version of an earlier lecture, In Our Larger Brotherhood. Both lectures are about the need for greater cooperation between churches locally and around the world. It advocates the establishment of and participation in inter-church and interfaith organizations, but emphasizes that these organizations should not become authoritative bodies and that all power should rest in the individual churches
