2. The Structure of the IPv6 Protocol

Source: IPv6 Essentials
Slice ePub May 28, 2014

This chapter explains the structure of the IPv6 header and compares it to the IPv4 header. It also discusses Extension headers, which are new in IPv6.

Understanding the structure of a protocol header and the type of information that can be transported with it is the best foundation for working with a protocol. This understanding helps you to identify how the protocol can best be configured and what the options are. It also helps you to identify possible sources of problems and issues when troubleshooting.

The header structure of an IPv6 packet is specified in RFC 2460. The header has a fixed length of 40 bytes. The two fields for Source and Destination addresses each use 16 bytes (128 bits), so there are only 8 bytes for general header information. The IPv6 header is therefore much simpler and leaner than the IPv4 header, allowing for more efficient processing and, as we will see, more flexibility in extending the protocol to meet future needs.

In IPv6, five fields from the IPv4 header have been removed:

Abstract- To take care of variability involved in the writing style of different individuals a novel approach has been proposed in this article to segment unconstrained handwritten

Bangla words into characters. Online handwriting recognition refers to the problem of interpretation of handwriting input captured as a stream of pen positions using a digitizer or other pen position sensor. For online recognition of word the proper segmentation of word into basic strokes is very much important. For word segmentation, at first the busy zone of the whole word is calculated and then an estimated headline is imagined just above the starting point of the busy zone. Remove all the pixels crossing the estimated headline by checking their distance. Finally the segmentation is done. The system has been tested on 5500

Gothic Sculpture in the Netherlands

thus also in Riemenschneider’s works (see p. 176). Artists such as Jörg Syrlin the Elder, Adam Krafft and Peter

Vischer influenced Riemenschneider, but his art is squarely anchored in the Late Gothic. He wanted to clearly portray

Christ’s suffering in his works. The Passion and the

Deposition of the Cross were his main themes, which he showed with great compassion. His portraits, particularly of knights and women, are characterised by great sensitivity and distinctive naturalism.

Veit Stoss, who had to live through unusual highs and lows, placed his narrative scenes into complex Gothic frames, which he filled with melancholy figures. His altarpiece in St. Mary Church in Cracow is the largest carved polyptych altarpiece in the German Gothic

(see p. 175). The folds of the garments clearly show the manner of late Gothic style, his characters express characteristic emotional movement. This kind of expressionism can also be found in late Gothic painting and would be rediscovered by German expressionists in the twentieth century.

43. Hormone Health: Human Growth Hormone

Slice ePub January 13, 2014

Starting at age twenty or so, the body’s level of human growth hormone (HGH) begins to decline, so that by the time we are age sixty-five, many of us have little or no HGH. The decline of HGH is accompanied by many of the miseries we associate with aging, from saggy skin to a potbelly, to a lack of vitality.

You can increase your HGH level naturally, through exercise. HGH seems to be released in response to particularly intense and strenuous activity. Weight lifting or resistance exercise, two or three times a week, is particularly effective. Include strenuous lifting (loads you can lift only six times), as well as lower body workouts (such as leg lifts, for at least half your workout time). Of course, check with your doctor before undertaking any strenuous exercise.

Numerous clinical studies have shown that HGH can help men and women gain lean body mass, lose fat mass, and improve markers of heart health. A number of additional studies have found that restoring HGH levels to that of a more youthful state can help people with quality of life, maintain their independence, and reduce the number of visits to the doctor or hospital.
