This part of BS 5950 supersedes BS 5950-1:1990, which is withdrawn. A period
of three months is being allowed for users to convert to the new standard. This
edition introduces technical changes based on a review of the standard, but it
does not constitute a full revision.
This new edition has been prepared following the issue of a number of new
related standards adopting European or international standards for materials
and processes, plus revisions to standards for loading. It also reflects the transfer
of cold formed structural hollow sections from BS 5950-5 to BS 5950-1....
This book is divided into three parts—deep practice, igni-tion, and master coaching—which correspond to the three basic elements of the talent code. Each element is useful on its own, but their convergence is the key to creating skill. Remove one, and the process slows. Combine them, even for six minutes, and things begin to change.
Compression of executable code in embedded microprocessor systems, used in the past mainly to reduce the memory footprint of embedded software, is gaining interest for the potential reduction in memory bus traffic and power consumption. We propose three new schemes for code compression, based on the concepts of static (using the static representation of the executable) and dynamic (using program execution traces) entropy and compare them with a state-of-the-art compression scheme, IBM’s CodePack.
The synthesis of the modified tetrapyrrole known asd1haem requires sev-eral dedicated proteins which are coded for by a set of genes that are often
found adjacent to the structural gene, nirS, for cytochrome cd1 nitrite
reductase. NirE, the product of the first gene in the nirbiogenesis operon,
was anticipated to catalyse the conversion of uroporphyrinogen III into
This paper explores the effect that different corpus conﬁgurations have on the performance of a coreference resolution system, as measured by MUC, B3 , and CEAF. By varying separately three parameters (language, annotation scheme, and preprocessing information) and applying the same coreference resolution system, the strong bonds between system and corpus are demonstrated. The experiments reveal problems in coreference resolution evaluation relating to task deﬁnition, coding schemes, and features. ...
In this chapter students will be able to: Explain the purpose and format of the ICD-9-CM volumes that are used by medical offices, describe how to analyze diagnoses and locate correct codes using the ICD-9-CM, identify the purpose and format of the CPT, name three key factors that determine the level of Evaluation and Management codes that are selected,...
This book is about tuning Oracle databases. Three areas of Oracle Database tuning are data model tuning, SQL code tuning, and physical and configuration tuning. The author began his career as an applications developer, not as a systems or network administrator. As a result, this book is written from an applications rather than an operating system perspective.
Welcome to the February 2004 issue of
php|architect. As I write this, I'm sitting in my
office—about forty degrees Celsius warmer
than outside and, therefore, a much better place to
work in that that the local park—suffering from an
awful cold and sitting by a collection of (clean) tissues
discreetly stashed on my desk, ready for use.
Before we dive in and start building applications for the iPhone, I’d like to quickly
establish the playing field. In this chapter, I’ll define key terms, compare the pros and
cons of the two most common development approaches, and present a crash course in
the three core web technologies that are used in this book.
Environmental health decision making can be a complex undertaking, as
there is the need to navigate and find balance among three core elements: science,
policy, and the needs of the American public. Much of environmental
health decision making started in the 1950s and 1960s and was focused on
health effects of simple environmental exposures. However, scientific knowledge
has rapidly changed as new technologies and new insights into the complexity
of environment–health interactions have emerged.
Introduction We will do three things in this seminar: 1. We will describe how to use an object-oriented style of programming with C programs, allowing the creation of libraries of code that can be easily adapted for use in different embedded projects; 2. We will describe how to create and use a ‘Project Header’ file. This file encapsulates key aspects of the hardware environment, such as the type of processor to be used, the oscillator frequency and the number of oscillator cycles required to execute each instruction. This helps to document the system, and makes it easier to port...
Functional programming (FP) is the oldest of the three major programming paradigms. The
first FP language, IPL, was invented in 1955, about a year before Fortran. The second, Lisp, was
invented in 1958, a year before Cobol. Both Fortran and Cobol are imperative (or procedural)
languages, and their immediate success in scientific and business computing made imperative
programming the dominant paradigm for more than 30 years. The rise of the object-oriented
(OO) paradigm in the 1970s and the gradual maturing of OO languages ever since have made
OO programming the most popular paradigm today....
Chapter One considers some of the classes of the java.io package. Java defines input and output (I/O) in
terms of classes known as streams. Streams provide system input and output in a way that isolates the
developer from the details about how an operating system provides access to system resources for the
purposes of I/O. Streams are not required for input and output when a graphical user interface (GUI) is
used to capture and display information in an application. Graphical user interface design is examined in
In February 2010, the CPSS and the Technical Committee of IOSCO launched a
comprehensive review of the three existing sets of standards for FMIs – the CPSIPS, RSSS,
and RCCP – in support of the FSB’s broader efforts to strengthen core financial
infrastructures and markets by ensuring that gaps in international standards are identified
The CPSS and the Technical Committee of IOSCO also identified the
review as an opportunity to harmonise and, where appropriate, strengthen the three sets of
Most fundamentally, the term Hollywood refers to three interrelated
aspects of American cinema: the industrial, the institutional, and the
formal-aesthetic. As an industry, Hollywood is a vast, integrated com-
mercial enterprise with specific business practices and standard operat-
ing procedures geared primarily to producing and distributing
feature-length films (“Hollywood movies”).
I hope that what is meant by this admittedly vague contention will become clearer
through the course of this essay. It might be thought too easy to have recourse to
‘everyday usage’, for probably any definition at all can be supported by judicious
selection from the flux of everyday language. I am able, however, to adduce here non-
specialist usages of ‘aesthetic’ and its cognates by three of the authors whose writings on
the peoples of the Southern Sudan are drawn on in this essay. These authors do not
discuss aesthetics as such, but make passing references which I find...
There are a few terms specific to mobile robots that must be defined to
avoid confusion. First, the term robot itself has unfortunately come to
have at least three different meanings. In this book, the word robot
means an autonomous or semi-autonomous mobile land vehicle that may
or may not have a manipulator or other device for affecting its environ-
ment. Colin Angle, CEO of iRobot Corp. defines a robot as a mobile
thing with sensors that looks at those sensors and decides on its own
what actions to take....
Database programming begins with the database. A well-performing, scalable data-
base application depends heavily on proper database design. Just about every time I
have encountered a problematic database application, a large part of the problem sat
in the underlying data model. Before you worry too much about writing Java code, it
is important to lay the proper foundation for that Java code in the database.
Relational data architecture is the discipline of structuring databases to serve applica-
tion needs while remaining scalable to future demands and usage patterns.
PCM consists of three steps to digitize an analog signal:
Before we sample, we have to filter the signal to limit the maximum frequency of the signal as it affects the sampling rate.
Filtering should ensure that we do not distort the signal, ie remove high frequency components that affect the signal shape.
