The CWA contains both “water-quality based” regulatory controls, which vary
according to the designated use (e.g., drinking water source, fishable, swimmable) and
attributes (e.g., volume and rate of flow) of the receiving water body, and “technology-
based” effluent standards that are achievable using available pollution control technology.
This paper explores techniques for reducing the effectiveness of standard authorship attribution techniques so that an author A can preserve anonymity for a particular document D. We discuss feature selection and adjustment and show how this information can be fed back to the author to create a new document D’ for which the calculated attribution moves away from A. Since it can be labor intensive to adjust the document in this fashion, we attempt to quantify the amount of effort required to produce the anonymized document and introduce two levels of anonymization: shallow and deep. ...
There are obvious reasons for trying to automate the production of multilingual documentation, especially for routine subject-matter in restricted domains (e.g. technical instructions). Two approaches have been adopted: Machine Translation (MT) of a source text, and Multilingual Natural Language Generation (M-NLG) from a knowledge base.
Sentence compression is the task of producing a summary at the sentence level. This paper focuses on three aspects of this task which have not received detailed treatment in the literature: training requirements, scalability, and automatic evaluation. We provide a novel comparison between a supervised constituentbased and an weakly supervised wordbased compression algorithm and examine how these models port to different domains (written vs. spoken text).

Presented in this document are requirements for design, inspection, and certification of ground-based pressure vessels and pressurized systems (PV/S) owned and/or operated by JSC and of all PV/S used on JSC property. JSC organizations must implement these requirements on PV/S for which they have the responsibility.
This applies to all PV/S used on JSC property.
Comments and questions concerning this document should be directed to the JSC Pressure Systems Manager, mail code NS2, member of the Safety and Test Operations Division....
Authorized Piping Inspectors must have a broad knowledge base relating to maintenance, inspection, alteration and repair of in-service metallic piping systems. The API Authorized Piping Inspector Certification Examination is designed to determine if applicants have such knowledge. The examination consists of two parts. The closed book part tests the candidate on knowledge and tasks requiring everyday working knowledge of API Standard 570 and the applicable reference documents.
This essential survival guide for successfully managing the modern-day IVF
clinic condenses a wealth of expertise and experience from the authors in trou-bleshooting and implementing quality management in the IVF laboratory. With
high-profile media coverage of mistakes at IVF clinics and escalating regula-tory scrutiny, there is increasing pressure for professional accreditation. Modern
accreditation schemes, which are largely based on the principles of ISO 9001 and
related standards, require quality systems.
I am enormously grateful to all of authors who have contributed to this volume on gas–
liquid foam. One of the great pleasures of working with such accomplished scientists and
engineers from industry and academia is that everybody has known the level at which to
pitch their contributions.
Special thanks are due to Laurie Schramm who, along with co-authors, has contributed
two chapters on foams in enhanced oil recovery and flotation of oil sands, and to Thomas
Martin who endured initial confusion upon my part to produce a first class chapter on firefighting
Reflects the Regulations, which implement a European Council Directive on minimum requirements for provision of workplace safety signs. The Directive standardised use throughout EU member states to ensure particular signs provide the same message wherever witnessed.
This guidance contains full colour sign reproduction throughout and is separated into three parts covering regulatory requirements, safety sign usage and a specific study of fire safety signs.

Funding auto theft prevention authorities. Dedicated, continuous funding of auto
theft prevention authorities contributes to their success. Most states fund them with
a small sum per vehicle collected from insurance companies that issue coverage in
the state. The Washington Auto Theft Prevention Authority receives its revenue
from a $10 surcharge on traffic infraction fees.
The development of MiFID will strengthen ESMA’s role in product intervention. The proposals seek to strengthen investor protection through an even stronger framework for the provision of investment services to retail clients and possibly a more proactive approach from NCAs.
The purpose of this document is to define the minimum requirements to be used for the
development and manufacture of 406 MHz Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs),
Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRBs), and Personal Locator Beacons
(PLBs). In this document, the term ELT indicates an aviation distress beacon, an EPIRB a
maritime distress beacon, and a PLB a distress beacon for personal use.
Specifications that are critical to the Cospas-Sarsat System are defined in detail; specifications
which could be developed by the national authorities are identified in more general terms....
The medical model emphasises health care and remedial treatment. Greater importance
needs now to be attached to primary prevention and health promotion and with which there
is a heightened need for people to accept their personal responsibility and individual
accountability. Traditional approaches to health have not encompassed sufficiently primary
prevention. New models are needed for positive health. These models require a
reassessment of value systems in society that enables improved understanding of the WHO
slogan: ‘health is our real wealth’. ...

One of the main reasons for choosing ARC is for its superior ability at handling
imbalanced class distributions. It utilizes the association rule mining, making sampling
unnecessary in many cases otherwise requiring sampling. In [WZYY05], ARC has been
shown to produce the best result among many algorithms on the data set used for KDD-
98 [Kdd98], which has a skewed class distribution. In addition, ARC can handle high
dimensionality (the data set has more than 400 variables) without a considerably long
