The relationship between severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) and blood levels of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) or cellular fibronectin (c-Fn) has never been reported. In this study, we aimed to a...

I captured a video with my Pentax K-5, and I wanted to send it to Wikipedia where OGG files are required. The conversion can be done very easily under Linux with avconv but the sound is poor because there are clicks.
I show a combination of VLC and avconv to produce a good quality video.

Until now I was using to the old, stable Lucid and Gnome 2 on all my computers […] Out of pure curiosity, I installed and tested Gnome 3.

Finally a clear explanation of R's environments, and how R searches and find stuff. Where you (sort of) understand why it can't find your object anymore!

I couldn't agree more with this!

“And therein lies the beauty of overkill analytics. [... One] doesn’t want to spend a lot of time fine-tuning models, writing complex algorithms or pre-analyzing data to make it work for his purposes. Rather, [one] wants to utilize some simple models, reduce things to numbers and process the heck out of the data set on as much hardware as is possible.”

Nice beach although the sea side is covered with algae. Well arranged and nice photo opportunities. A bit crowded during summer though.

The staff was very friendly and drove to the terminal to carry us to the hotel. However we were a big group and everyone couldn't fit in the car, so we decided to walk the 2 minutes needed to cross the parking to get to the hotel. The hotel and the rooms are modern and clean, furnitures were simple and functional. There is no wardrobe in the room to store your things: this is really your 1-night airport hotel, and it does it very well. Hot water has little of the distinctive Icelandic smell. The breakfast was OK, but not very varied, the good thing is that it opened very early for travellers (5am if I remember well), however if you come too late there will be no yoghurt left.

A bunch of black statues randomly spread on a waste (by someone supposedly well known in France, but nobody ever heard about him there either), a couple more inside for rainy days if you accept to be charged 50kr. for basically copies of a few statues in different formats and colors, a tiny hut where an old man will make you a sandwich with two pieces of the cheapest sandwich bread and a slice of something that looks like cheese but tastes like nothing... and that's it! Not going back and will not recommend it unless you're there already for something else (but what else can you do in Dronningmølle?).

Nice statue although it could benefit a bit of cleaning. Best time for pictures is with a golden light just before sunset. Avoid backlight on the mornings and dull white light during the day - it makes it so grey and uninteresting! Be there early in winter or late in June, 1/2h before sunset or so. Avoid during weekends and hollidays - it's just too crowded with carfuls of tourists, all you will get is an awful view of tourists climbing on it to take pictures of them in the most disrespectful position. While you're there, don't miss the Geneticall Modified Little Mermaid nearby in the harbour North - it's much more original and much less crowded, and just 5 minutes of walk or so.

Spent 3 nights there recently in a 3 beds room. Nice hotel, well located near the major road of Southern Iceland. Nice view on the river and mountains around (if you are on the right side of the hotel of course). Rooms were spacious, furnitures simple but modern. The third bed is a joke though, and not fit for an adult. It is a transformed armchair (not even a sofa), very narrow and not flat at all. Hot water in the bathroom had the characteristic Icelandic smell, cold water was fresh and perfectly fine. The ventilation of the bathroom was down so it got a bit steamy. Free wifi was available everywhere in the hotel. The service was good, except a staff member was at a time bit grumpy and surprisingly reluctant when asked to bring hot water for the tea. Other than that the staff was very friendly and professional. Overall a good experience.
