  • It may have already occurred to you that this "toughest job you'll ever love seems almost impossible. Look at some of the obstacles you may be facing. Your students are numerous; many may be older than you. Textbooks are scarce, and again, many may be older than you. The physical conditions are austere, with a tin roof that creaks as the temperature rises and obliterates all other sound when the rains come. Pictures and posters disappear from the classroom walls. Desks are too few. The blackboard has been worn to a light grey and chalk stubs are...

  • There is a need to expand the skill sets among EC staff, both at HQ and Delegations. Better under- standing of some key analytical tools is required, including how to engage in (and interpret) the results of policy, sector and institutional analysis. Developing a better understanding of partner govern- ment’s planning, budgeting and financial manage- ment systems is also critical.

  • The study area is located on an ecosystem that is of low carrying capacity and as such this has necessitated excessive use of agro-chemicals to enhance productivity. The effects from these practices is that the chemicals find their way into the lake through runoff from the agricultural parcels of land. Because the land generally slopes towards the lake. Poor tillage practices often result in soil erosion and the loose soil is carried awash into the lake. All these result in increased eutrophication of the lake’s waters.

  • The first sketch of this fountain, created by Jens-Flemming Sørensen, was drawn on a tablecloth at Galerie Asbæk in Copen- hagen. The airport wanted a fountain, the artist came up with an idea, and the dialogue and work began. The fountain is a good example of how a work of art can fit into the hustle and bustle of an airport without losing any of its originality and artistic concept. The airport did not just want a fountain - but a fountain with a function; a cosy corner to sit for a while and an obvious meeting point. The basin and its three globes are cast in bronze and...

  • Other systems model different media, such as [TFN99], which describes a colored pencil drawing system. Their volume graphics approach models the interaction between the pencil lead and the paper. The pencil sketching program in [SB00] models the hardness and shape of the pencil tip, the paper texture, and interaction with erasers and blenders. Mosaicing was treated as a packing problem in [KP02]. Flatly colored containers were used to specify the major shapes for the desired mosaic.

  • A first option for providing additional monetary accommodation, if necessary, is to expand the Federal Reserve’s holdings of longer-term securities. As I noted earlier, the evidence suggests that the Fed’s earlier program of purchases was effective in bringing down term premiums and lowering the costs of borrowing in a number of private credit markets. I regard the program (which was significantly expanded in March 2009) as having made an important contribution to the economic stabilization and recovery that began in the spring of 2009.

  • We can see by the responses above that the participants did not aspire to high earnings, possibly because they do not have a sense of how much money is required to earn a living wage, and/or because they have grown up in poverty. The latter two respondents have a sense of the connections between earning and living standards. The gap in knowledge around earning capacity could be one starting place to help young women assess how much they need to earn in order to attain a living wage. The need for economic literacy is starkly apparent from the responses above....

  • Qualitative criteria and suspension levels will be applied by the holders in each Member State with appropriate oversight from the national competent authority(ies). It must be borne in mind that the competent authorities for the MED are generally not the same as those for the MDD. In addition the criteria for acceptability are introduced and applied in the context of increasing oversight in health care, for example, the developing requirements for clinical audit particularly in the radiological world.

  • For these reasons, mobility systems on mobile robots can be both sim- pler and more complex than those found in automobiles. For example, the Ackerman steering system in automobiles is not actually suited for high mobility. It feels right to a human, and it is well suited to higher speed travel, but a robot doesn’t care about feeling right, not yet, at least! The best mobility system for a robot to have is one that effectively accomplishes the required task, without regard to how well a human could use it....

  • The emergence of fixed cinemas coincided which a huge growth phase in the business in general; film production increased greatly, and film distribution developed into a special activity, often managed by large film producers. However, until about 1914, besides the cinemas, films also continued to be combined with live entertainment in vaudeville and other theatres (Musser 1990; Allen 1980). We can thus place the take-off of the cinema industry between 1905 and 1907. In these years it developed its own retail outlets and did not depend exclusively on theatres and travelling showmen.

  • A vast literature focuses on the predictability of U.S. and international stock returns using macroe- conomic variables, such as the short government interest rate or the yield spread between defaultable and government bonds. For instance, Ferson and Harvey (1993) nd that returns on international stock indexes are predictable using macroeconomic indicators as conditioning variables. More strikingly, Ferson and Harvey (1999) nd that broad economic variables explain the cross-sectional variation in U.S. individual stock returns better than the Fama and French (1993) empirical factors.

  • Yet the shift towards health-systems strengthening and its support through the International Health Partnership (IHP+) and other related initiatives offer a framework within which SRH may be more broadly addressed. The support offered to ministries of health by the UNFPA and WHO country offices has been marked by greater collaboration and a stronger functional focus. This has been achieved through harmonization of activities in the United Nations Development Assistance Framework, and by practical engagement of technical working groups and similar structures for SRH.

  • To derive our empirical results, we obtain a sample of equity SRI funds from the Social Investment Forum for the period 1997-2005 and merge this sample with the CRSP Survivor Bias Free US Mutual Fund Database. Our results indicate that the SRI constraint does not reduce funds' before-fee performance, measured using the four-factor alpha of Carhart (1997). On the contrary, SRI funds outperform comparable conventional funds by a substantial 0.96% to 1.83% per year before expenses.

  • Our research provided significant data that allowed us to gain insight and discern patterns related to participant reactions regarding notice clarity, comprehension, and comparison. 5 This was true across all our testing sessions. A professional transcription service prepared typed transcripts for each interview based on audiotapes. 6 In addition, a notetaker used a structured log to record observations of each testing session. The results were coded and entered into a database using Atlas.ti, a qualitative research software package.

  • Unmeasured confounders are factors that influencemortality and vary with time in amanner that is similar to air pollution. These factors produce seasonal and long-termtrends inmortality that can confound the relationship between mortality and air pollution. Influenza and respira- tory infectionsmight reasonably be considered among themost important, usually unmeasured or not readily available confounders which produce seasonal patterns in mortality.

  • In shared-nothing database systems, data often needs to be moved whenever there is a join or an aggregation process for which the data requires repartitioning across the segments. As a result, the interconnect serves as one of the most critical components within Greenplum Database. Greenplum’s gNet interconnect (Figure 8m) optimizes the flow of data to allow continuous pipelining of processing without blocking on all nodes of the system.

Again, it is unlikely that all devices will ever simultaneously produce log events at maximum rate.
