The reader must remember that these articles were written before the war began. They are in a sense prophetic
and show a remarkable understanding of the conditions which brought about the present great war in Europe.
The writer has made European history a life study and his training in the English consular service placed him
in a position to secure the facts upon which he bases his arguments.
Sir Roger Casement was born in Ireland in September, 1864.
This paper addresses the problem of extracting the most important facts from a news article. Our approach uses syntactic, semantic, and general statistical features to identify the most important sentences in a document. The importance of the individual features is estimated using generalized iterative scaling methods trained on an annotated newswire corpus.
Before beginning the book you will profit greatly if you recognize the fact that the book was not written to

Dr. Miller Reese Hutchison, nationally known Consulting Engineer and long-time associate of Thomas A.
Edison, said-- "This is not a novel. It is a textbook on individual achievement that came directly from the
experiences of hundreds of America's most successful men. It should be studied, digested, and meditated
upon. No more than one chapter should be read in a single night.
The remit of the long-term care insurance funds is to ensure the supply of permanent care for
their insured and to eliminate shortcomings in quality. They consequently control the quality
of the care supplied. Nevertheless, their ability to ensure the supply of care is limited by the
fact that they have no appropriate influence on the creation, promotion or maintenance of an
LTC infrastructure. This task is assigned to the states. Furthermore, the LTC transfers are paid
by the insurance funds.
Sustainable development has been one of the alarming concerns in the twenty-first
century. Anderson and Brooks (1996) discus how given the fact that “the supply of most
natural resources and environment services” are limited, it is of urgent concern to monitor
and control resource usage for one to even hope for continued economic activity in the years
to come. Furthermore, the incessant population and per capita growth exacerbates the
problem as they are indicative of the continuous growth in economic activity (Anderson &
There are a vast number of technologies and practices that can be employed to reduce
GHG emissions for the purpose of generating offsets. In addition, GHG emissions can be
offset through certain kinds of land use and forestry practices that remove CO2 from the
atmosphere. According to a survey from 2006, projects involving land use and forestry
practices are in fact the most common type being funded by voluntary offset purchases.
The next most common type of project involves renewable energy production, followed
by demand-side energy efficiency improvements (Table 1).
A spot for Fox TV’s American Idol on Wednesdays at primetime
commands the most dollars per :30 ($518,466), but how much more is that than

Even though human oncogenic viruses belong to different
virus families and utilize diverse strategies to contribute to
cancer development, they share many common features. One
key feature is their ability to infect, but not kill, their host cell. In
contrast to many other viruses that cause disease, oncogenic
viruses have the tendency to establish long-term persistent in-
fections. Consequently, they have evolved strategies for evading
the host immune response, which would otherwise clear the
virus during these persistent infections.
The word robot is commonly defined as a mechanical device capable of performing
human tasks, or behaving in a human-like manner. No argument here.
The description certainly fits.
But to the robotics experimenter, “robot” has a completely different meaning.
A robot is a special brew of motors, solenoids, wires, and assorted electronic odds
and ends, a marriage of mechanical and electronic gizmos.
hydrophobic compounds and thereby act as lipophilic antioxidants preventing
polyunsaturated fatty acids from oxidative damages. In fact, carotenoids are incorporated
into lipid membranes and thus could act as chain-breaking antioxidants by stopping free
radical chain reactions (propagation of lipid peroxidation), scavenging lipid peroxyl radicals
(LOO•), avoiding the abstraction of allylic hydrogens from neighboring lipids. Inactivation
of lipoxygenase activity by carotenoids is also proposed as another mechanism of protection
against oxidative stress.

At its core, Driving Technical Change is a fantastic book about design patterns. In it, Terrence Ryan clearly outlines common, problematic personalities—“skeptics”—and provides proven solutions for bringing about progressive change. It is certainly an unfortunate fact of human behavior that people are oftentimes resistant to implementing best practices; however, using Terry’s book as a guide, you will now be able to identify why people push back against change and what you can do to remain successful in the face of adversity....
Thank you for respecting the author's work. Work From Home Facts Fact: Right now almost everyone is desperate to secure their financial survival, and they know that a home business, in a proven and widely-respected industry which is immune to economic ups and downs, is their only chance. If only they can find such a thing. Fact: People already know that internet marketing is a lottery, not a business, and are intensely wary of these and other scams. Fact: Women, and parenting men, are still discriminated against in the workplace. Fact: Men and women are deserting the traditional workplace...
The continued thirst for energy
is a recurring story in news
headlines every day. Global warming
forecasts rising temperatures, melting ice, and population
dislocations due to accumulation of greenhouse gases in
our atmosphere from use of carbon-based energy. There
are strong arguments for and against the dire predictions of
global warming, yet one fact is undeniable—over the past 10
to 20 years, the inhabitants of Earth are collectively consuming
more energy at a faster rate than ever before.
Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (AIHA) Except for countries where malaria is endemic, AIHA is the most common form of acquired hemolytic anemia. In fact, not quite appropriately, the two phrases are sometimes used synonymously.
Pathophysiology AIHA is caused by an autoantibody directed against a red cell antigen, i.e., a molecule present on the surface of red cells. The autoantibody binds to the red cells. Once a red cell is coated by antibody, it will be destroyed by one or more mechanisms.
Helicobacter pylori, which persistently colonizes the stomachs of ~50% of the world's human population, is the main risk factor for peptic ulceration (Chap. 287) as well as for gastric adenocarcinoma and gastric MALT (mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue) lymphoma (Chap. 87). Treatment for H. pylori has revolutionized the management of peptic ulcer disease, providing a permanent cure in many cases. The prevention of H. pylori colonization could potentially represent primary prevention of gastric malignancy and peptic ulceration.
Although the current study has one clear focal point, it in fact has a twofold
goal. This book not only aims to give a thorough analysis of Wittgenstein’s view
on human subjectivity, it also wants to evaluate the ethico-political arguments
that often take centre stage in the debate for and against the rethinking of the
subject. In this introductory chapter, I will lay out my reasons for devoting a
study to these combined topics, but before I can explain this in full detail, the
meaning of the main terms I use needs to be clari( ed.
"PEOPLE ARE basically alike," Harding said democratically. He sat idly against the strawlike matting of the hut wall and reached for a native fruit in a nearby bowl. "They're all suckers, even the smartest of them; in fact, the ones who
Responding to the Challenge of Cancer in Europe has been written within the
Fighting Against Cancer Today (FACT) project, funded by the EU’s Public
Health Programme. It brings together a large body of evidence on cancer
control in Europe, a priority theme in public health during the Slovenian
Presidency of the European Union in 2008.
We are extremely grateful to all the authors for the enthusiasm they have
brought to this project and their hard work in meeting tight deadlines.
