[1411.1209] MultiQueues: Simpler, Faster, and Better Relaxed Concurrent Priority Queues
Priority queues with parallel access are an attractive data structure for applications like prioritized online scheduling, discrete event simulation, or branch-and-bound. However, a classical priority queue constitutes a severe bottleneck in this context, leading to very small throughput. Hence, there has been significant interest in concurrent priority queues with a somewhat relaxed semantics where deleted elements only need to be close to the minimum. In this paper we present a very simple approach based on multiple sequential priority queues. It turns out to outperform previous more complicated data structures while at the same time improving the quality of the returned elements.

My eldest brother is a doctor - I was a schoolboy when he was a medical student and one day he came back from working in the operating theatre in Cardiff when he was a dresser to a well-known brain surgeon by the name of Lambert Rogers. He came back as I say and told us a very strange story, a haunting story, and years passed and it still haunted me and eventually I put down what he said in this poem. You ought to know that brain surgery is done under a local anaesthetic - it was so since the First World War, this for blood pressure reasons. The operation in question took place in 1938 when they didn't have the scanning devices they now have which can pick out a lesion in the brain very cleverly, whereas in the past sometimes a surgeon, searching for the tumour or whatever it was, broke down more brain tissue than was necessary. 'In the theatre' - a true incident.

Bloop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bloop was an ultra-low-frequency and extremely powerful underwater sound detected by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in 1997. The sound was consistent with the noises generated by icequakes in large icebergs, or large icebergs scraping the ocean floor.
