Grant will help safeguard images of Lincoln papers

Papers of Abraham Lincoln receives ‘AWS in Education Grant’ to store images in secure environment

September 3, 2013

SPRINGFIELD – The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum announced today that Amazon Web Services has awarded the Papers of Abraham Lincoln an “AWS in Education Grant” of $24,000 in storage services. This will allow the Papers of Abraham Lincoln to store more than 35 terabytes of master image files in a secure environment.

For the past decade, the staff of the Papers of Abraham Lincoln has been collecting images of documents written by or to Abraham Lincoln from repositories and private collections around the world. The project has scanned more than 90,000 documents from more than 400 repositories and 180 private collections in 47 states and 5 foreign countries thus far. The archive will likely top 150,000 documents when complete.

From 2006 to 2013, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign housed the growing archive of master image files. The retirement of their Mass Storage System has forced the project to look for a new storage solution for its 35 terabytes of files. (Thirty-five terabytes is roughly equivalent to a digital music file that would play non-stop for 68 years, or to 10.8 million photographs.)

Free generic viagra no prescription Medications include antiplatelets, cholesterol-lowering statins, and antihypertensives. generic viagra online youku.com Antiplatelet medications (aspirin, ticlopidine, clopidogrel) thin the blood and prevent clotting in the narrowed arteries, which allows blood to pass through more easily. Cholesterol-lowering statins help reduce plaque formation in atherosclerosis. Statins can reduce ldl "bad" cholesterol by an average of 25-30% when combined with a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet. Antihypertensive medications (diuretics, ace inhibitors, angiotensin blockers, beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, etc. ) help control and regulate blood pressure. Because high blood pressure is a major risk of stroke, regular blood pressure screenings are recommended. Surgery surgical treatment is generally recommended for patients who have suffered one or more tias or strokes and who have a moderate to high grade of carotid stenosis [2,3]. The aim of surgery is to prevent stroke by removing or reducing the plaque buildup and enlarging the artery lumen to allow more blood flow to the brain. Buy viagra online legally Carotid endarterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the plaque. A skin incision is made in the neck and the carotid artery is located. Temporary clamps are placed across the artery above and below the area of stenosis to stop blood flow. During this time, the carotid artery on the other side of the neck carries blood flow to the brain. The surgeon makes an incision in the artery over the blocked area. The plaque buildup is physically peeled out and removed (fig. 5). The artery is then closed with tiny sutures and the clamps removed to allow blood flow to the brain. Generic viagra trial Carotid endarterectomy is typically indicated for patients who have had symptoms (stroke or tia) and have blockage greater than 50%. It is also recommended for patients who have no symptoms (asymptomatic) and have blockage greater than 60%. Among patients with moderate blockage of 50 to 69%, surgery reduces the risk of stroke by 6. Viagra online europa 5% over a five-year period. Among patients with high-grade blockage of more than 70%, the risk of stroke is reduced by 80% [2].
