A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) was first published by the Project Management Institute (PMI) as a white paper in 1983 in an attempt to document and standardize generally accepted project management information and practices. The first edition was published in 1996 followed by the second edition in 2000. In 2004, the PMBOK Guide — Third Edition was published with major changes from the previous editions. The latest English-language PMBOK Guide — Fourth Edition was released on December 31, 2008.
Work on the Fifth Edition is in development.
Xét về cảm hứng và lịch sử, body art vốn không xa lạ với người Việt cổ, thậm chí nó từng là nền tảng văn hóa (Văn Lang có nghĩa: chàng trai vẽ mình). Thế nhưng, xét như một bộ môn nghệ thuật độc lập và chịu ảnh hưởng bởi phương Tây, thì việc tiếp nhận và thực hành trong khoảng 5-10 năm qua tại Việt Nam còn nhiều điều cần phải bàn.
More than ten years ago, two of us (AGH and DGR) were lucky enough to edit a
previous symposium of the British Ecological Society (BES) – Aquatic Ecology: Scale,
Pattern and Process (Giller, Hildrew & Raffaelli, 1994). In the Introduction to that
volume, we pointed out that the BES had not devoted a single previous symposium
to aquatic ecosystems.
Chapter 20 - Development and evolutionary change. This chapter includes contents: How does a molecular tool kit govern development? How can mutations with large effects change only one part of the body? How can differences among species evolve? How does the environment modulate development? How do developmental genes constrain evolution?
The last decade has been one of rapid, profound, and
ongoing change in the investments industry. This is
due in part to an abundance of newly designed
securities, in part to the creation of new trading
strategies that would have been impossible without
concurrent advances in computer and communications
technology, and in part to continuing advances in the
theory of investments. Of necessity, our text has
evolved along with the financial markets. In this
edition, we address many of the changes in the
A well-written, easy-to-absorb guide to healing, change, and a healthy way of being in the world.
Health is not a possession – it’s a process. It’s something we do, the result of how we think and feel, a state of mind and being.
Nearly 2,500 years ago Hippocrates taught that being healthy was evidence that an individual had achieved harmony both within themelves and with their environment. The authors of ‘NLP and Health’ believe that this is equally true today. Their book demonstrates how to use NLP tools to bring your mind and body into harmony and to explore the enigmatic key...
Why is it so hard to make lasting changes in our companies, in our communities, and in our own lives?
The primary obstacle is a conflict that’s built into our brains, say Chip and Dan Heath, authors of the critically acclaimed bestseller Made to Stick. Psychologists have discovered that our minds are ruled by two different systems—the rational mind and the emotional mind—that compete for control. The rational mind wants a great beach body; the emotional mind wants that Oreo cookie.
By taking the same posture, you can effectively disconcert them and force them to change their position, allowing you to take the control. Research shows that when the leader of a group uses certain gestures and positions, subordinates copy them. Leaders also tend to be the first of a group to walk through a doorway and they like to sit on the end of a couch or bench seat rather than in the centre. When a group of executives walk into a room, the boss usually goes first. When executives are seated in the board room, the boss usually...
Have you ever felt lumps under the skin on the sides of your neck when you were sick? Those
might be lymph nodes. They can get swollen and painful but their job is to fight infection.
Lymph nodes are part of the body’s defenses known as the lymphatic system.
Các nghệ sĩ đã sử dụng kết hợp hình ảnh hoa sen thật và hoa sen vẽ trên cơ thể người mẫu để tạo ra một tác phẩm hoàn chỉnh.

Do you wonder why the latest fitness fad doesn't work for you? Have you lifted weights for months, dreaming of toned, defined muscles, with no results? Have you exercised regularly for months -- or even years -- without seeing any changes in your body? If you answered yes to any of these questions, chances are your exercise routine is incomplete and wrong for your body type.
Nursing in Today’s World: Trends, Issues, and Management, 10th edition focuses on
the nonclinical aspects of the professional nursing role. Much of this content is just as critical
to practicing safely as is competence in the performance of clinical skills. As nursing steps up
to play a major role in the changes brought about by healthcare reform, knowledge of the profession
and its place in the healthcare environment has never been more important.
Although the fifth edition of this book has seen many author changes, our commitment
and direction was clearly stated by, Dr. Helen Cox, in the preface to the fourth edition. We
continue our commitment to providing a nursing focus to the process of nursing care.
The fifth edition reflects seventeen new and six revised diagnoses accepted by
NANDA in 2003 and 2005 and updated information in each chapter. The chapter formats
remain the same. We have revised the integration of NANDA, NIC, and NOC terminology
to assist with understanding their integration.
Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is the most common known
preventable cause of mental impairment. Babies with FAS
have distinctive changes in their facial features and they
may be born small. The brain damage that occurs with
FAS can result in lifelong problems with learning, memory,
attention, and problem solving. These alcohol-related
changes in the brain may be present even in babies whose
appearance and growth are not affected.
The Mk. II Volkswagen Golf and Jetta range of models was

Most commercial transactions are governed by a very detailed and well-established body of rules that have evolved over a very long period of time, it being the case that governing trade and commerce was a strong driving force in the creation of law and courts in Western civilization.
In the past it has been postulated that the metabolism of hump fat could supply water to
the fluid compartments when the camel is water deprived. While water is a by-product of
carbohydrate and fat metabolism, it is now known that the act of gaining the oxygen
required would cause the loss of more water than would be gained. Also, cellular
metabolism creates heat and the camel’s survival strategy, especially during periods of
water deprivation, is to reduce metabolic rate and hence heat production and water loss.
