  • The Oracle database engine has become a huge piece of software. This not only means that a single human can no longer be roficient in using all the features provided in recent versions, but it also means that some of them will rarely be used. Actually, in most situations, it is enough to know and take advantage of a limited number of core features in order to use the Oracle database engine efficiently and successfully.

  • This is a short book, but it took a long time to write. In two previous books, Beyond All Reason and Desperately Seeking Certainty, we criticized some currently popular theories like originalism, the view (held by many conservative constitutional scholars) that the Constitution’s meaning is fi xed by the history of its creation. We also criticized theories of leading scholars at the other end of the ideological spectrum.

  • If we take a step back and try to analyze the term Group Policy , it’s easy to become confused. When I first heard the term, I thought it was an NT 4 System Policy that applied to groups. But, thankfully, the results are much more exciting. Microsoft’s perspective is that the name “Group Policy” is derived from the fact that you are “grouping together policy settings.” Group Policy is, in essence, rules that are applied and enforced at multiple levels of Active Directory. All policies you design are adhered to.

  • European society and the European economy do not yet exploit the full potential for resource efficiency. Much recyclable waste is either exported or sent to landfill. A lack of long-term frameworks holds back planning and investment, most obviously on a climate and energy framework beyond 2020, but also on long term sustainable use of key resources such as air, soil, energy, water, fish and biomass. At the same time, such frameworks can help to galvanise the innovation needed to exploit the potential of the transition to a low-carbon economy in areas like transport, energy and agriculture....

  • While structuring financing packages for vital projects is among the most impor- tant roles the federal government plays in infrastructure investment, its activities extend well beyond this role and into research, issuing regulations, awarding grants, environmental protection, and even directly operating and maintaining locks, dams, bridges, and utilities throughout our country. To coordinate all of these activities and maximize the efficiency of federal infrastructure programs, we need a national infrastructure planning council.

  • Third, federal funds borrowed have historically been distinguished from other liabilities of depository institutions because they have been exempt from both reserve requirements and interest rate ceilings. 2 The supply of and demand for federal funds arise in large part as a means of efficiently distributing reserves throughout the banking system.

  • Academic library directors can have a positive and profound impact on the future of academic print collections by adopting and implementing a deliberate strategy to build and sustain regional print service centers that can meet aggregate demand with aggregate supply. Beyond the obvious operational efficiencies of consolidating low-use, digitized print volumes into shared service collections there is an important strategic advantage to reconfiguring collective inventory that is increasingly devalued as an institutional asset.

  • By contrast, other scholars argue that private remedies should be strengthened to enforce corporate governance standards at banks. 5 Many propose improving banks’ accountability and efficiency of operations by increasing the legal duties that bank directors and senior management owe to depositors and other creditors.

  • For a long while, commercial banks have been reluctant to get involved in microfinance. On other hand savings banks and socially committed retail banks often lack expertise in microlending and microinsur- ance. However, the performance of some industry players and “pioneer experiences” by mainstream banks over the recent years has demonstrated that microfinance can be both socially-efficient and profitable when well-managed.

  • I intentionally left out the whole world of hydraulics. While hydraulic power can be the answer when very compact actuators or high power density motors are required, it is potentially more danger- ous, and definitely messier, to work with than electrically powered devices. It is also much less efficient—a real problem for battery pow- ered robots. There are many texts on hydraulic power and its uses. If hydraulics is being considered in a design, the reader is referred to Industrial Fluid Power (4 volumes) 3rd ed., published by Womack Education Publications.
