Protecting the civilian population is one of the central tenets of U.S. counterinsurgency doctrine. Until very recently, however, the U.S. military has not had a formal system for documenting the level of violence directed against Iraqi civilians. Therefore, other groups (such as nongovernmental organizations, the United Nations,
Provide various form of insurance and investment services to individuals. Charge a fee (premium) for the services, Provide a payment to the insured (or a named beneficiary) under conditions specified by the insurance policy contract Help individuals or firms to reduce the potential financial damage due to specified conditions. Common types of insurance are life insurance, property
and casualty insurance, health insurance, and business insurance.
Assuming and managing risk is one of the important roles the financial services industry plays
for its customers. The key, of course, is to manage risk profitably. Risk involves the many domain areas of expertise such as credit, investment, casualty, interest rate, and other traditional risks faced by financial services providers
If the customer’s unhappy, everyone’s unhappy!
Every great piece of software starts with a customer’s big idea. It’s your job as a
professional software developer to bring those ideas to life. But taking a vague
idea and turning it into working code—code that satisfies your customer—isn’t
so easy. In this chapter you’ll learn how to avoid being a software development
casualty by delivering software that is needed, on-time, and on-budget. Grab
your laptop and let’s set out on the road to shipping great software...
But the U.S. Navy knew otherwise; so the Navy issued exact figures, showing that out of one hundred tankers hit by torpedoes sixty stayed afloat; and of the forty that did sink, only five sank in less than ten minutes. That meant time to get off the ship-it also meant casualties were exceedingly small. Did this help morale? "This knowledge of the law of averages wiped out my jitters," said Clyde W. Maas, of 1969 Walnut Street, St. Paul, Minnesota-the man who told this story. "The whole crew felt better. We knew we had a chance; and that, by...
In the light of changes to health and safety law, and the continuing development of
best practice by the event industry, the guide has been reviewed and revised. The
advice in this publication has been tried and tested and lays down a firm foundation
on which to organise health and safety at music events. Many of the chapters can
be applied to other types of event which, although not necessarily having a musical
theme, share some of the common characteristics of music events.
This publication will enable event organisers, local authorities, the emergency
Having a vision, a mission, and a passion are invariably seen as
conditions for success. The 1995 U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services (DHHS) concept of a Metropolitan Medical Response
System (MMRS) demonstrated that the leaders of DHHS had a
vision for an effective response to a mass-casualty terrorism incident with
a weapon of mass destruction. The mission was to expand the experimental
model of the Metropolitan Medical Strike Team (MMST) established
in Washington, D.C., and neighboring counties into a national
Written premium is commonly used in the property/casualty insurance industry as a measure of
business growth. Therefore, an understanding of the components of written premium is
necessary to evaluate growth correctly. Absent this understanding, a user of written premium
information may misinterpret the true growth rate of an insurer, especially during periods of
rapid change (such as a change in processing systems or transition to a different type of
In the simplest case, the policy premium is known and fixed in advance once the policy is sold.
This should consider that premiums reflect both the first
party costs (generally damage to the driver’s own vehicle)
and third party costs (generally damage to property outside
of the driver’s vehicle and injury costs for people outside of
the vehicle although it will, of course, include injury costs for
passengers in the driver’s vehicle where the driver is at fault).
These new technologies, therefore, need to be able to reduce the casualty rate and the level of severity
I have endeavored to prepare the following narrative from authentic material, contemporaneous, or nearly
contemporaneous, with the events described.
The main source of information is the official reports of battles and operations. These reports, both National
and Confederate, will appear in the series of volumes of Military Reports now in preparation under the
supervision of Colonel Scott, Chief of the War Records Office in the War Department. Executive Document
The skill and care of the women of the Allied military nursing services was remembered gratefully by hundreds of thousands of wounded servicemen of World War II (1939-1945). The small peacetime services increased rapidly by enrolling reservists and volunteers; the great majority of the nurses who cared for Allied casualties were 'civilians in uniform', who worked tirelessly under difficult conditions and - in tented hospitals close to the front lines - in real danger; many nurses paid for their devotion with their lives.
Since its inception, the CERT® Coordination Center (CERT/CC) has had a strong commitment
to transition lessons learned about computer security incident handling to the broader
Internet community. The ultimate goal of this transition work is the development of a community
equipped to recognize, prevent, and effectively respond to computer security risks
and threats against their organizations.
It was at Governor Alvarado's house in Monterey that Chonita first knew of Diego Estenega. I had told him
much of her, but had never cared to mention the name of Estenega in the presence of an Iturbi y Moncada.
Chonita came to Monterey to stand godmother to the child of Alvarado and of her friend Doña Martina, his
wife. She arrived the morning before the christening, and no one thought to tell her that Estenega was to be
godfather. The house was full of girls, relatives of the young mother, gathered for the ceremony and
subsequent week of festivities. Benicia, my little one, was...
Education should be free and compulsory
as school fees often pose insurmountable
blocks to children receiving an education.
When poor families are forced to make
difficult choices about household expendi-
tures, school is often the first thing
dropped, and daughters are often the
first casualties. National education plans
should work towards ending school fees
and other hidden costs as part of well-
planned educational reform strategies.
The 1990-1991 Persian Gulf War was brief and entailed few US casualties in comparison
with other wars, and yet it had a profound impact on the lives of many of the troops. Among the
700,000 US military personnel deployed in the battle theater, many veterans have reported
chronic symptoms and illnesses that they have attributed to their service in the gulf. Numerous
studies have been conducted to characterize the long-term adverse health consequences of
deployment to the Persian Gulf.
Potential exposures to numerous hazardous substances have been identified in association
with the Gulf War.
