4.2 Specification-Based

Slice ePub May 27, 2014
<p> <em>“Let’s just say I was testing the bounds of reality. I was curious to see what would happen. That’s all it was: curiosity.”</em> </p><p>Jim Morrison of the Doors, an early boundary analyst</p><p>The fourth chapter of the Advanced syllabus is concerned with test techniques. To make the material manageable, the syllabus uses a taxonomy—a hierarchical classification scheme—to divide the material into sections and subsections. Conveniently for us, it uses the same taxonomy of test techniques given in the Foundation syllabus, namely specification-based, structure-based, and experience-based, adding additional techniques and further explanation in each category. In addition, the Advanced syllabus also discusses both static and dynamic analysis.<sup>1</sup></p><p>This chapter contains six sections.</p><p>We’ll look at each section and how it relates to test analysis.</p><p> <strong>Learning objectives</strong> </p><p>Recall of content only</p><p>In this chapter and the next two chapters, we cover a number of test design techniques. Let’s start by putting some structure around these techniques, and then we’ll tell you which ones are in scope for the test analyst and which are in scope for the technical test analyst.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/403688-advanced-software-testing-vol-3-guide-to-the-istqb-advanced-certification-as-an-advanced-technical-test-analyst">See more</a>

17. The Discovery of Ketones and the Ketogenic Diet

Slice ePub July 08, 2014
<p>O</p><p>ne of the earliest scientific articles about ketones appeared in the German literature in 1865 by J. Gerhardt. This article discusses the discovery of ketones in the urine of people with diabetes. Thirty years later, another German article discussed the presence of an abundance of ketones in the urine of people who were in diabetic coma (Hirschfield, 1895). For many years thereafter, ketones were simply thought to be abnormal byproducts of disease, such as diabetes. Even today, many doctors think of diabetic ketoacidosis when they first hear about the discussion of ketones and Alzheimers disease. They worry that their patients might become acidotic if they consume medium-chain fatty acids. This is simply not true (see section on Diabetic Ketoacidosis in Chapter 16).</p><p> <b>ORIGIN OF THE KETOGENIC DIET </b> </p><p>The story of the effect of ketones in treating disease actually begins much earlier. There are historical references to fasting as a successful treatment for epilepsy and seizures in the Bible and again in the literature of the Middle Ages. In 1921, a pediatrician, Rawle Geyelin, M.D., reported at an American Medical Association convention successful treatment of three patients with epilepsy by an osteopath, Hugh Conklin, D.O. One of these patients was a ten-year-old boy with severe epilepsy who endured two very long periods of fasting, after which he had no seizures for the next year. Dr. Geyelin also reported that eighteen of twenty-six patients he treated showed marked improvement, and two were seizure-free for more than a year. He found that a twenty-day fast appeared to have the best results. Drs. Geyelin and Conklin did not know at that point that starvation produces high levels of ketones, and that these high levels of ketones were almost certainly responsible for the reduction of seizures in their patients.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/729346-alzheimer-s-disease">See more</a>
