Almost all applications listed in, say collection of Semantic Web Case Studies and Use Cases are essentially based on the accessibility of, and integration of Linked Data at various level of complexities. The importance of DBPedia is not only that it includes Wikipedia data, but also that it incorporates links to other datasets on the Web, e. By providing those extra links in terms of RDF triples applications may exploit the extra and possibly more precise knowledge from other datasets when developing an application; by virtue of integrating facts from several datasets, the application may provide a much better user experience.
Some of those books are introductory in nature while others are conference proceedings or textbook that address more advanced topics. Details of recent and upcoming Semantic Web related talks , given by the W3C Staff , the staff of the W3C Offices , and members of the W3C Working Groups are available separately; the slides are usually publicly available.

Thus, the higher a person's BMI, the greater their risk of experiencing stroke , heart disease , and similar events and conditions. However, new research, from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in New York, NY, and other institutions, points to another potential factor, namely, where fat is stored in the body — for women over the age of 50, at least. The new study — the findings of which appear in European Heart Journal — has looked at data from , women aged 50—79 to find out whether BMI or fat distribution was associated with cardiovascular risk.
All of the participants had enrolled in the Women's Health Initiative between and Follow-up information on the participants' health was available from that period to the end of February None of these women had cardiovascular disease at baseline. Throughout the study period, however, the researchers recorded new cases of cardiovascular disease. In the study, the investigators measured body fat mass through dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, a type of scan that assesses a person's fat, muscle, and bone density.
The team found a pattern.
Women with the highest percentage of fat stored around their middles and trunks and the lowest percentage of fat around their legs, giving them an "apple" body shape, also had the highest risk of cardiovascular disease. These women had more than thrice the risk of cardiovascular disease of peers with a low percentage of fat around their middles and a higher percentage of fat around the legs: the "pear" shape.
Cardiovascular risk linked not to weight, but to body fat storage
Yet, the researchers add, body weight seems not to affect this risk. In addition to overall body weight control, people may also need to pay attention to their regional body fat, even those who have a healthy body weight and normal BMI," says lead author Qibin Qi, Ph. Furthermore, the investigators argue that reducing the amount of midriff body fat alone could help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Whether the pattern of the associations could be generalizable to younger women and to men who had relatively lower regional body fat [levels] remains unknown," he says.

At the same time, the researchers believe that their current findings make a good case for using measurements other than just BMI when considering the risk of cardiovascular disease. Measurement of waist circumference is also recommended by [a] national organization to provide additional information, but usually only in those with a BMI between 25 to These are important research directions for future population studies.
