I have no hesitation in commending this small volume as containing so far as its space permits, a good picture
of my beloved Father and a record of much that made his life of interest and importance to the world.
It does not, of course, profess to cover anything like the whole story of his many years of world-wide service.
It could not do so. For any such complete history we must wait for that later production which may, I hope, be
possible before very long when there has been time to go fully through the masses of diaries, letters and other
papers he has...

This second edition of Ironies in Organizational Development contains 25
chapters plus an overview and they represent a complex mixture—of the old
and the new, of the tried-and-true as well as the speculative, of the here-andnow
with a dash or two of the by-and-by. To provide some specificity, most
of the major components of this volume did not appear at all in the first edition,
and 11 chapters were part of the previous book but are revised here—bringing
points up to date, citing new research, and eliminating mistakes. Some
questions follow, quite naturally.
Spelling correction for keyword-search queries is challenging in restricted domains such as personal email (or desktop) search, due to the scarcity of query logs, and due to the specialized nature of the domain. For that task, this paper presents an algorithm that is based on statistics from the corpus data (rather than the query log). This algorithm, which employs a simple graph-based approach, can incorporate different types of data sources with different levels of reliability (e.g., email subject vs.
The results of this study suggest that the lowest exposures (concentrations of pollutants) are experienced by train
commuters, largely a reflection of the routes being removed from any significant road traffic. Motorcyclists experienced
significantly higher average concentrations as a result of high-concentration and very-short-duration peaks not seen in the
traces of car and bus commuters travelling on the same road.
One of the challenges in treating cancer is the disease's complexity and variation among patients. Cancer manifests differently in each patient, so treatments that are effective in one patient may not be effective in another. As cancer care becomes more personalized, subpopulations of individuals will be given preventive or therapeutic interventions based on their susceptibility to a particular disease or their predicted response to a specific treatment.
Personalized cancer medicine is defined as medical care based on the
particular biological characteristics of the disease process in individual
patients. By using genomics and proteomics, individuals can
be classified into subpopulations based on their susceptibility to a particular
disease or response to a specific treatment. They may then be given preventive
or therapeutic interventions that will be most effective given their
In the latest guide from the respected Motley Fool, Selena Maranjian uses simple examples and real-world scenarios to demystify the complexities of finance for beginning and intermediate investors. Through an accessible question-and-answer format, this guide tackles the most common questions about understanding investing and stocks, managing portfolios, and evaluating companies.
I have known Michael Donaldson since our days in law school together. We
share fundamental values about our human community, and I agree about
how honest negotiation can help us realize those values.
Now that I’ve reviewed the final text, it is gratifyingly obvious that this is not
merely a book about techniques. It is not a book about cheap tricks. As far as
I know, it is the only book on negotiating that begins with creating a personal
or business mission statement that explores and then incorporates your
values and beliefs.
Nearly one million weekly listeners trust NPR's Brooke Gladstone to guide them through the distortions and complexities of the modern media. This brilliant radio personality now bursts onto the page as an illustrated character in vivid comics drawn by acclaimed artist Josh Neufeld. The cartoon of Brooke conducts the reader through two millennia of history-from the newspapers in Caesar's Rome to the penny press of the American Revolution and the manipulations of contemporary journalism.
Specific writing prompts administered during
testing are developed with the assistance of
external prompt writers who are recruited on
the basis of their expertise and to reflect the
diversity of the populations served by the
ACT. ACT prompt writers are male and female
educators from both high schools and
colleges, and they represent a variety of
geographical regions, racial and ethnic
backgrounds, and educational philosophies.
There are simple phobias and complex phobias.
Simple phobias are those that focus on a single person, place or
thing. Often the sufferer simply avoids the feared object, (e.g.,
an elevator). Simple phobias usually start with a traumatic
incident, such as being stuck in an elevator.

A one-stop reference to concepts and usability of the core modules of a complex application Stephen D. Kell
Stephen D. Kelly graduated from Oregon State University in 1982 with a degree
in Construction Engineering Management. He got his start with a mid-sized general contractor who was willing to take a chance with this college graduate and they both saw the benefits of a computer system in the contracting world.
The project was characterised by
high uncertainty, since neither cost nor time could be accurately estimated. Times of
completion were based on probabilities: optimistic, pessimistic, and most likely. This
led to what has come to be known as the programme evaluation review technique
(PERT). Later a new methodology known as project planning and scheduling (PPS)
was introduced in the private sector. PPS required realistic estimates of cost and
time, and was considered more definitive than PERT.
» Risk management is everyone’s responsibility. Each person and business unit in an
organization “owns” a piece of risk management. Every employee should be involved
in managing the risks within his or her part of the organization. Employees also may
seek to be aware of risks that may affect their units but are managed by others, such as
information technology risks. Employees and business units have these responsibilities
regardless of whether the organization has dedicated risk management personnel, such
as a CRO.
This initial stage of the project also provides the project manager with opportunities to get to know the team and
help them get to know each other. The time-honored kick-off group lunch can be combined with techniques
often using in training sessions such as sharing personal and professional information with a colleague who then
makes the group introduction. In addition, the project manager should ensure that the physical workspace is
arranged in a way that facilitates collaborative activities such as pair programming and team problem solving.
If everyone in the world lived as we do in the UK, we would need three planets to support us.
This means that we are consuming two extra planets’ worth of resources. But even after we’ve
reduced our personal footprints as far as we can – which on average is about a third of our
consumption – there remains a third that ...
