The shipping industry is both special and fascinating. It is special, above all, because of its
truly global nature, the huge discrete investments needed, the highly cyclical markets at play,
and the unique competitive structure, with many determined players. It is fascinating, above
all, because fortunes are made—and lost—at a fast pace, with some of the most risk-willing
owners also serving as decision makers.
This book is the result of at least seven forces that have shaped my interest in shipping
corporations and their strategies. The first is purely personal.
This is a revised and updated edition of the classic pronunciation title Ship or Sheep? This new edition of Ship or Sheep?, an accessible intermediate-level pronunciation course in full colour for students of English, provides systematic practice of English pronunciation,
The Android development platform, created by Google and the Open Handset Alliance, is a platform in its truest sense, encompassing hundreds of classes beyond the traditional Java classes and open source components that ship with the SDK.
With Beginning Android 2, you’ll learn how to develop applications for Android 2.x mobile devices, using simple examples that are ready to run with your copy of the SDK. Author, Android columnist, writer, developer, and community advocate Mark L.
This book was written primarily to meet the needs of the UK students when studying, either in their spare time at sea or ashore, for department of transport certificates of competecy for deck officers and engineering offices.
This book is based on a course of Ship Hydrostatics delivered during a quarter of a
century at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Technion-Israel Institute
of Technology. The book reflects the author's own experience in design and R&D
and incorporates improvements based on feedback received from students.
This book is a training document and contains simplifications.
Therefore, it must not be considered as a specification of the

Intelligent systems, known as expert systems, serve to this purpose in the extent that they have signed as facilitators in this process. These are systems that are based on expert knowledge, on any subject, in order to emulate human expertise in the specific field. To obtain this knowledge, the knowledge engineers, also called software engineers, need to develop methodologies for intelligent systems. In this area there is still no unified methodology that provides effective methods, notations and tools to aid in development....

The information given in this manual is based on our long experience and know - how in the building of totally enclosed lifeboats. In case of an emergency it is very important that the occupants know how tho handle the lifeboat and it's equipment.
In an attempt to glean potential trends, this study divides the subjects of the 641
filings into categories based in part on their occupation and in part on their relation-
ship to the insurance or investment product involved in the transaction. The data is
derived from several sources on the SAR-SF: the narrative section (Part VI), Field 7
(“Occupation or Type of Business”), and Field 19 (“Is this individual/business associated/
affiliated with the reporting financial institution?”).
The study characterizes the subjects based on their relationship to the insurance
While a taxonomy captures names of things, an ontology captures concepts and relation-
ships. We would like to explore the use of RDF to grow not just folksonomies, but also folk-
sologies (folk ontologies). For this purpose, we model tags not as text keywords, but as RDF re-
sources named by URIs with keywords as their labels, so that it is possible to annotate them. For
example, one might tag a number of dessert recipes with “durian”tag
then tag the “durian”tag
Mining Members of the World Business Council on
Sustainable Development (WBCSD) established the
Global Mining Initiative (GMI) in 1998. The GMI,
representing some of the worlds leading mineral and
mining companies, was established to provide leader-
ship and direction for the future development of the
mining industry in a sustainable manner. To this end,
the GMI approached the International Institute of
Environment and Development to commission the
Mining, Minerals and Sustainable Development
(MMSD) project, to determine how mining can most
effectively contribute to sustainable development.
The creator of Tapestry details how to use this new framework's components to create rich web-based GUIs using links, images, and HTML forms. The challenges of web application development are discussed, such as managing server-side state properly, application localization, and maintaining synchronization between the client web browser and the application server. At the same time, the benefits of a clean separation between presentation logic and business logic and how well
It will be remembered by those connected with the military service that towards the end of the late Civil War,
there went through the camps and barracks of the volunteer soldiers agents of publishing houses busily
engaged in procuring material for "company histories," and still more anxiously soliciting subscriptions for
The Throg task force struck the Terran Survey camp a few minutes after
dawn, without warning, and with a deadly precision which argued that
the aliens had fully reconnoitered and prepared that attack. Eye-searing
lances of energy lashed back and forth across the base with methodical
accuracy. And a single cowering witness, flattened on a ledge in the
heights above, knew that when the last of those yellow-red bolts fell,
nothing human would be left alive down there.
We noted factors such as a habitual
face tilt or the presentation of anatomical
dissociation (prominent nasal septum iso-
lated or combined with small pupillary
distance/endophthalmus) when present.
There were, however, no clear trends or
patterns providing support that anatomi-
cal factors significantly contributed to the
problem of working with a tilted gaze.
Further investigation of the relation-
ship between monocular signs and symp-
toms, binocular function and ergonomics
within the workplace is clearly needed.
Others have proposed different variables
to be considered.
Microsoft Analysis Services is server-based platform for on-line analytical processing (OLAP) and Data Mining Services provided with Microsoft SQL Server 2005. This tool is not new, but it has been completely rewritten from the ground up. While Analysis Services 2000 was more of an evolutionary release building on the same OLAP architecture that Microsoft (MS) introduced with
SQL 7, the new version of SSAS is a fundamental change, built on Unified Dimensional Model (UDM). Microsoft released SSAS in November 2005, and it ships as an add-on to SQL Server 2005 just like its predecessors....
The vibrant and rich Android development platform, created by Google and the Open Handset Alliance, continues to be a platform in its truest sense, encompassing hundreds of classes beyond the traditional Java classes and open source components that ship with the software development kit. Android's continued growth includes support for Flash and Flash gaming apps, Wi-Fi tethering, improved performance, WebM or WebMedia integration for HTML5-based video and other multimedia APIs, Chrome OS (WebOS) integration, and more.
This kit introduces the various tools for administering and configuring
Windows 2000 including the Microsoft Management Console, Task Scheduler,
Control Panel, and the registry. You will learn about the network protocols and
services that ship with Windows 2000. This kit concentrates on Transmission
Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), the network protocol of choice for
Citrix XenApp is the leader of application virtualization or application delivery.
Several years ago, when the word Virtualization didn't exist, people used to talk
about application hosting. Citrix was founded in 1989 and they developed the first
successful product in 1993 called WinView. It provided remote access to DOS and
Windows 3.1 applications on a multi-user platform. Citrix licensed Microsoft's
Windows NT 3.51 source code from Microsoft; and in 1995 they shipped a multiuser
version of Windows NT based on the MultiWin engine, known as WinFrame.
