CarSim is an automatic text-to-scene conversion system. It analyzes written descriptions of car accidents and synthesizes 3D scenes of them. The conversion process consists of two stages. An information extraction module creates a tabular description of the accident and a visual simulator generates and animates the scene. We implemented a first version of CarSim that considered a corpus of texts in French. We redesigned its linguistic modules and its interface and we applied it to texts in English from the National Transportation Safety Board in the United States. ...
In the aftermath of September 11, the Port Authority’s mission was in large part redirected to
the rebuilding efforts around the WTC site. The organizational toll on the Port Authority

Because of its large size, it is important to account for the net position in interest-rate
derivatives when measuring exposure. The key diﬃculty in measuring the exposure in
interest-rate derivatives is that banks do not report the sign of their position — whether
they represent bets on interest rate increases (e.g., pay-ﬁxed swaps) or decreases (e.g.,

I am deeply grateful to all the Commissioners for their dedication, their foresight and personal
commitment to our common endeavour. It has been a truly wonderful team. The spirit of
friendship and open communication, the meeting of minds and the process of learning and
sharing, have provided an experience of optimism, something of great value to all of us, and, I
believe, to the report and its message. We hope to share with others our learning process, and
all that we have experienced together.
The Global Findex data show sharp disparities in the use of financial services
between high-income and developing economies and across individual character-
istics. The share of adults in high-income economies with an account at a formal
financial institution is more than twice that in developing economies. And around
the world, men and more educated, wealthier, and older adults make greater use
of formal financial services.
Novel cross-country data on self-reported reasons for not having a formal ac-
count make it possible to identify barriers to financial inclusion.

The 2001 White Paper "European Transport Policy for 2010: Time to Decide" sets out the ambitious target of reducing
the number of road fatalities with 50 percent by 2010. This requires a rapid increase in the efforts of all safety
stakeholders. To support these actions, the European Commission officially launched the eSafety initiative in April
User benefits are derived from valuing traveler impact measurements such as
changes in person hours traveled or vehicle hours traveled (VHT), person miles
traveled or vehicle miles traveled (VMT), and safety and reliability
improvements. Unit costs are then applied to these metrics to derive the direct
user benefits. (Examples of unit costs are the vehicle operation expenditures per
mile or hour, the value of time per hour, and the costs of accidents per incident,
A timetable or appointment

Carsim is a program that automatically converts narratives into 3D scenes. Carsim considers authentic texts describing road accidents, generally collected from web sites of Swedish newspapers or transcribed from hand-written accounts by victims of accidents. One of the program’s key features is that it animates the generated scene to visualize events. To create a consistent animation, Carsim extracts the participants mentioned in a text and identiﬁes what they do.
