We come across an era of strong and even more unusual individual claims, while the solution to often conflicting demands becomes increasingly elusive and parochial. One of the most intriguing philosophical questions is how to link human responsibility to those consequences of action which no one can fully foresee but, nevertheless, which no one can afford to neglect. Many biotechnological challenges are of this nature.

This paper outlines the development of the sociological study of medical
autonomy and how recent reforms in medical regulation in the United Kingdom
illustrate how medical elites are proactively introducing formal performance
surveillance and appraisal mechanisms and processes within medical training as
they respond to challenges to traditional professional self-regulatory privileges,
such as greater state, inter-professional and non-medical involvement in the
governance of medical expertise.
Aim: Basing on the basis of theoretical and practical research, the author suggests solutions to implement the autonomy and social responsibility better in financial management of colleges in the Northwest.
This study attempts to present what the authors have experienced and applied in fostering learner autonomy in Country Studies (namely British and American Studies) at Faculty of English, Hanoi National University of Education. Starting with some main definitions about learner autonomy and its conditions, and basing on authors’ own experience and belief, the authors discuss four main strategies used in teaching and learning Country Studies.
This paper aims to propose a possible solution to a real-world curriculum problem of how to foster learner autonomy in an English academic writing class at College of Foreign Languages-Vietnam National University where a generally low level of learner autonomy is perceived. It begins by defining relevant terms and representing the problem. Thence, the rationale for the proposed solution and a plan for implementing it are discussed. The final section suggests a plan for evaluating the effectiveness of the problem-solving task.
Territorial autonomy is an important constitutional phenomenon, but because the
sub-state entities that can be identified as territorial autonomies are relatively small,
the phenomenon is often overlooked in systematic presentations of constitutional
law. This is not to say that treatises of national constitutional law would completely
lack information about territorial autonomies, but the internal functioning of substate
entities, in particular, is not known to a wider audience.

This subsection is devoted to modeling and control of mobile robotic systems. Because a mobile robot can be used for exploration of unknown environments due to its partial or complete autonomy is of fundamental importance.
Forests are an integral part of global sustainable development. The World Bank
estimates more than 1.6 billion people to be dependent on forests for their livelihoods
with some 300 million living in them. The forest product industry is a source of
economic growth and employment, with global forest products traded internationally
is estimated at $327 billion. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates
that every year 130,000 km² of the world's forests are lost due to deforestation.

First we look up on the economic dependency as a component of economic deprivation. The
dependency status of a person identified as an indicator of freedom and autonomy of an
individual that reflects on the ability to transform his capability to the wellbeing (Sen 1992).
The studies of the wellbeing of the elderly gives that there is high degree of dependency in the
old age for both economic and Physical (Omran 1982, World Bank 1994). In the developed
world, it is protected by the intuitional and social care that one way curtails the incidence of
the dependency (Heslop, A. and...
Integrating reproductive health, family planning and STI/HIV prevention and treatment services is
critical for achieving universal access. Integration requires that health care workers can provide
an appropriate comprehensive package of services under one roof, and refer patients to other
services if required. Linking STI/HIV with SRH services improves access to HIV/STI services for
women who might otherwise not visit them because of issues of stigma .
The relative distribution of market value across the sectors is shown in Figure 3. Six of the 23 products
and services ‐ Alternative Fuels (17.3%), Building Technologies (12.1%), Alternative Fuels for Vehicles
(11.8%), Wind (10.7%), Geothermal (8.7%) and Waste Water Treatment (7.4%) ‐ together account for
60% of total market value.
This second edition of the Encyclopedia of Nursing Research (ENR), like the first, is a
comprehensive, yet concise and authoritative guide to existing nursing research literature. It
charts the course of nursing research since 1983 when the first edition of the Annual Review
of Nursing Research (ARNR) was published.
The original edition of ENR, published in 1998, grew from a long-standing commitment
of the publisher, Dr. Ursula Springer, to the field of nursing, and my commitment to nurse
scholars around the globe.
The advancements of the research on Mobile Robots with high degree of autonomy is
possible, on one hand, due to its broad perspective of applications and, on other hand, due
to the development and reduction of costs on computer, electronic and mechanic systems.
Together with the research in Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science, this scenario
currently enables the proposition of ambitious and complex robotic projects.
An extended range of new sensing applications and solutions have emerged in different fields such
as rural and forest fire detection , monitoring of industrial manufacturing processes ,
transport/logistics , and for personal services in areas such as healthcare and Ambient Assisted
Living (AAL) . These new advanced applications based on a new generation of sensing and
communication capabilities are a consequence of the continuous advances in sensor technologies
and wireless communication protocols that allow for greater autonomy of sensor nodes.
VOCs generated indoors may be presumed to decrease proportionally in response to increases in
house ventilation. This has been documented in a new, unoccupied house for those VOCs with
the highest vapor pressures (Hodgson et al., 2000). However, within chemical classes, the
effectiveness of ventilation for reducing concentrations generally decreases with decreasing
