  • Database systems are a key component behind many of today’s computer systems. As a consequence, it is crucial that database systems provide correct and contin- uous service despite unpredictable circumstances, such as software bugs or attacks. This paper presents the de- sign of Byzantium, a Byzantine fault-tolerant database replication middleware that provides snapshot isolation (SI) semantics. SI is very popular because it allows in- creased concurrency when compared to serializability, while providing similar behavior for typical workloads.

  • The activities in this document aim to outline the various stages in the teaching of writing that a teacher needs to consider. No-one would advocate giving a learner an empty sheet of paper and a title and telling them to write a story or a report, except in an examination for which they had been fully prepared. The fear of that empty page is very real to many learners who have no idea how to begin the process and feel they are devoid of ideas and expertise; they can become demoralised, lose confidence and be put off writing for life unless they are explicitly taught strategies to cope....

  • Progress Microfinance has been implemented through two actions, both of which are managed by EIF. They are: 1) a guarantee instrument to providers of micro-credit (funded entirely by the European Commission); and 2) a structured investment vehicle set up under Luxembourg law, the European Progress Microfinance Fund, funded by the European Commission and the EIB.

  • Thus, the study of mutual funds in emerging markets is overdue for those who need a fuller understanding of their investment conditions. In addition, this would allow an out-of- sample test to challenge existing asset pricing models and lead to the development of new empirical models. This study seeks to shed light on mutual fund investment in emerging markets and specifically focuses on three issues: performance, determinants of performance and the role of liquidity on performance and performance measure.

  • If a proven process is not available, it will be necessary to develop a process for use on the project which conforms to the stage, step, task construct. Once this has been done, it is necessary to estimate the resources, both client and technical, required for the project. This should be expressed by resource type or role (e.g., Client Accounts Clerk, Systems Analyst, Analyst Programmer) rather than by individual. It should cover all personnel resources required, both full and part time.

  • Traditionally, large distribution networks were developed by the Life Insurance Corporation of India and the Unit Trust of India for their own products. The LIC model involved engaging deeply with distributors and agents, by educating and equipping them to sell. Agents were well-compensated and penetration was deep. In return, the agents worked exclusively with LIC and did not sell other products. Unlike this, the mutual fund distribution network evolved in an open architecture mode.

  • Upstream and downstream linkages contribute to ME’s innovativeness. However, most of the technological progress is based on the industry’s own R&D capabilities and its broad knowledge of process technologies. One of the outstanding examples in this respect has been the so-called Compact Strip Production (CSP). Developed by a European firm at the end of the 1980s, this technology enables steel works to invest in a capital and energy saving process. It has been based upon the integration of steps that have been carried out separately in former times.

  • Casual car theft, such as those committed by joyriding juveniles, still exists but has become a lesser part of the auto theft problem. Increasingly, car theft is a sophisticated criminal enterprise that involves title fraud, vehicle identification cloning, and stripping cars for parts in “chop shops.” The domestic and international black market for stolen vehicles and their parts is a profitable business. Vehicle identification cloning helps facilitate the crime of dealing in stolen vehicles.

  • Why is benchmarking SIEM important? According to the National Institute of Standards (NIST), SIEM software is a relatively new type of centralized logging software compared to syslog. Our SANS Log Management Survey1 shows 51 percent of respondents ranked collecting logs as their most critical challenge – and collecting logs is a basic feature a SIEM system can provide. Further, a recent NetworkWorld article2 explains how different SIEM products typically integrate well with selected logging tools, but not with all tools.

  • An increase in the price of a supply-substitute reduces the supply of a good (by making the alternative good more attractive to suppliers), and similarly, a decrease in the price of a supply complement reduces the supply of a good. By making the by-product less valuable, the returns to investing in a good are reduced. Thus, an increase in the price of DVD-R discs (used for recording DVDs) discourages investment in the manufacture of CD-Rs, which are a substitute in supply, leading to a decrease in the supply of CD-Rs. This tends to increase the price of...

  • We honor those who provided this rich intellectual heritage while also recognizing that much has changed in the decades since the term "media literacy" first came into use. In responding to those changes, this document shifts the focus of the discussion from what we believe to be true about media to what we believe to be true about how people learn to think critically. It expands the boundaries of the field to encompass not only what we teach but also how we teach, thereby distinguishing these as Core Principles of "media literacy education" rather than solely as...

  • Project objectives should therefore contribute to national and sector policies wherever a public sector activity is being supported. When non-state actors are implementing projects, a distinction needs to be made drawn between activities fully outside the realm of the public sector and activities undertaken on behalf of government. In the latter case, non-state actors typically deliver services of a public nature as if these services had been ‘contracted out’ by government.

  • Greenplum utilizes a “parallel-everywhere” approach to loading, in which data flows from one or more source systems to every node of the database without any sequential choke points. This approach differs from traditional “bulk loading” technologies—used by most mainstream database and MPP appliance vendors—which push data from a single source, often over a single channel or a small number of parallel channels, and result in fundamental bottlenecks and ever- increasing load times.

  • CED does offer the potential to help young women make a transition to better-paying positions in sectors such as the public service. As we shall see, CED can meet both the short-term needs young women have to earn income, and the long term needs of gaining marketable skills they will take with them into their futures. Caroline Moserís conceptualizations of practical and strategic gender needs have been pivotal in development theory. She explains that any efforts towards gender equality require us to think in terms of womenís practical and strategic gender needs.

  • Suppose that p is a statement that is logically true. What is its truth set? Now p is logically true if and only if it is true in every logically possible case, so that the truth set of p must be U. Similarly, if p is logically false, then it is false for every logically possible case, so that its truth set is the empty set ∅. Finally, let us consider the implication relation. Recall that p im- plies p if and only if the conditional p → q is logically true. But p → q is logically true if and only if its truth set is...

  • The primary form of funding for both the Flemish and French-language public broadcasters is government appropriations that are established between the broadcaster and ruling government via a “management contract.” These contracts (created every five years) set forth funding levels for the length of the contract and tie that funding to a variety of performance criteria (D’Haenens et al. 2009). Objectives are established in four broad areas — services (e.g.

  • To conserve spectrum in critical frequency bands, the Department may encourage appropriate radio systems to be developed in alternate frequency bands and the use of existing networks to their maximum capacity. Emphasis also will continue to be placed on efficient spectrum utilization and conservation techniques, if viable, as a requirement for existing and new services. Priority will be considered for technologies and systems which are more spectrum efficient.

  • Note that the population share of the economically active age groups now becomes more clearly insignificant. This suggests that its initial statistical significance might be entirely due to its correlation with the urbanization rate as pointed out above and its correlation with the average household size (partial correlation coefficient of )0.58). In other words, it would appear that the urbanization rate and average household size are the demographic factors that really matter.
