Kindergarten-Grade 2–The team behind the Words Are CATegorical series (Carolrhoda) offers the first in a series about math. Through playful rhymes, the book explains basic concepts such as, No amount gets smaller when you're working in addition. The numbers climb from low to high 'cause that's addition's mission! Children count bubbles, rings, school buses, baseballs, baby-sitters, eggs, and musicians in this fun introduction, which also covers terms that are indicative of the operation
As our understanding of natural language generation has increased, a number of tasks have been separated from realization and put together under the heading atext planning I . So far, however, no-one has enumerated the kinds of tasks a text planner should be able to do. This paper describes the principal lesson learned in combining a number of planning tasks in a planner-realiser: planning and realization should be interleaved, in a limited-commitment planning paradigm, to perform two types of p]annlng: prescriptive and restrictive. ...
The standard set of rules deﬁned in Combinatory Categorial Grammar (CCG) fails to provide satisfactory analyses for a number of syntactic structures found in natural languages. These structures can be analyzed elegantly by augmenting CCG with a class of rules based on the combinator D (Curry and Feys, 1958). We show two ways to derive the D rules: one based on unary composition and the other based on a logical characterization of CCG’s rule base (Baldridge, 2002).
The interaction between these
two variables, however, provided a better predictor of beverage preference. Similar
results, in terms of the interaction between product choice and usage situation were
found by Green and Rao (1972), Belk (1974) and Srivastava et al. (1978). In a later
study, Srivastava (1980) examined the appropriateness of financial services in a
particular situation and found it to be relatively stable across situations, thus providing
further support for using consumption situations as a basis for segmenting the market.
We focus on the city of Madison, Wisconsin, where a single Web site (FSBOMadison.com)
has become the dominant for-sale-by-owner platform. FSBOMadison.com offered us access to
all FSBO listings since its inception. We combined the FSBO data with data from two other
sources. First, the South-Central Wisconsin Realtors Association granted us access to all MLS
listings in the city. Second, we matched every listing with data from the city of Madison.
This paper presents the results of handwritten digit recognition on well-known image databases using state-of-the-art feature extraction and classification techniques. The tested databases are obtained from MNIST  and collected samples of digits handwritten by teachers at Da Nang University of Technology. For feature extraction, two features are chosen: Hu’s seven moments and image averaging (resizing the images to ones of less number of pixels for easier comparison).
Two soluble enzymes (FerA and FerB) catalyzing the
reduction of a number of iron(III) complexes by NADH,
were purified to near homogeneity from the aerobically
grown iron-limited culture ofParacoccus denitrificansusing
a combination of anion-exchange chromatography (Seph-arose Q), chromatofocusing (Mono P), and gel permeation
chromatography (Superose 12). FerA is a monomer with
a molecular mass of 19 kDa, whereas FerB exhibited a
molecular mass of about 55 kDa and consists of probably
two identical subunits. ...
Microsoft Office 2007 is the latest-and-greatest version of a long line of versions, starting (not surprisingly) with Version 1. Not that this is
the 2,007th version. Somewhere along the way Microsoft switched from using sequential numbers for versions to using years. We have written this book for those of you who have some experience in project management and are looking for a quick and efficient way to manage your projects. When combined, Excel 2007 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS)—two......
This Lecture on Algebra is written for students of Advanced Training Programs of Mechatronics (from California State University –CSU Chico) and Material Science (from University of Illinois- UIUC). When preparing the manuscript of this lecture, we have to combine the two syllabuses of two courses on Algebra of the two programs (Math 031 of CSU Chico and Math 225 of UIUC). There are some differences between the two syllabuses, e.g.
Getting to Know Excel 2007
Tipping off your keyboard
Excel provides a feature called KeyTips that allow you to access every command on the Ribbon using the keyboard, without having to memorize keystroke combinations! So, what are KeyTips? KeyTips are little alphanumerical indicators containing a single letter, a combination of two letters, or a number, indicating what to type to activate the command under them, as shown in Figure 1-5.
Fiber composite technology is based on taking advantage of the high strength and
high stiffness of fibers, which are combined with matrix materials of similar/
dissimilar natures in various ways, creating inevitable interfaces. In fiber composites,
both the fiber and the matrix retain their original physical and chemical identities,
yet together they produce a combination of mechanical properties that cannot be
achieved with either of the constituents acting alone, due to the presence of an
interface between these two constituents.
The Hexadecimal (Hex) number system is used to refer to the binary numbers in a NIC or IPv6 address. The word hexadecimal comes from the Greek word for 16. Hexadecimal is often abbreviated "0x", zero and lower case x. Hex numbers use 16 unique digits to display any combination of eight binary digits as only two hexadecimal digits.
A Byte, or 8 bits, can range from 00000000 to 11111111. A Byte can create 256 combinations with decimal values ranging from 0 to 255 or Hex values 0 to FF. Each Hex value represents only four binary bits. The alpha (A-F) values...
COMBINING THE BURST AND CELL SCALES
The ﬁnite-capacity buffer is a fundamental element of ATM where cells multiplexed from a number of different input streams are temporarily stored awaiting onward transmission. The ﬂow of cells from the different inputs, the number of inputs, and the rate at which cells are served determine the occupancy of the buffer and hence the cell delay and cell loss experienced. So, how large should this ﬁnite buffer be? In Chapters 8 and 9 we have seen that there are two elements of queueing behaviour: the cell-scale and burst-scale components. ...
The solution to a problem with an impact or excitation model having more than two masses and/or any number of non-linear energy absorbers becomes too complex to solve in a closed form. Then, numerical evaluation and integration techniques are necessary to solve for the dynamic responses. Models such as the two non-isomorphic (with different structural configuration) hybrid or standard solid models, the combination of two hybrid models, and special cases with point masses will be treated first in closed-form.
The study of catalytic membranes and membrane reactor processes is a multidisciplinary
activity, which in recent years has attracted the attention of scientists and engineers
in a number of disciplines, including materials science, chemistry and biology, and chemical
and biochemical engineering.
The Family Health Survey sampling frame consists of all Wisconsin households with a working landline
telephone. In 2008, the sample design for selecting telephone numbers for the survey divided the state
into eight sample strata, seven of which were defined geographically. Five strata were comprised of
regional county groupings and two strata were defined as Dane and Brown counties. Telephone area
code/prefix combinations from these seven strata were randomly sampled at varying rates, designed to
provide a useable sample for several parts of the state.
In the past two decades a number of investigators have attempted to combine measures
of mortality and morbidity in order to address issues of whether Americans
are living longer, healthy lives, as well as just longer lives. In general, a life-table
approach is used to divide increases in years lived into healthy and unhealthy
years. These measures have the same useful characteristics as life-table measures
based only on mortality. They can be compared across time and place, and they
summarize a large amount of age-specific data.
For all buildings combined, the average plug-load equipment density in units per 1000 gross ft
, was about
9 for office equipment and 14 for miscellaneous equipment, for a sum of about 23 units per 1000 gross ft
Educational buildings, where large floor areas are devoted to classrooms, had the lowest density of both
office and miscellaneous equipment. However, two-thirds of computers and monitors found in educational
buildings (and thus most of the energy savings potential) were concentrated in computer-based classrooms.
A number of companies operate bonus and performance plans simulta-
neously. Differences in earnings definitions and target horizons of these two
plans make it difficult to identify their combined effect on managers' account-
ing decisions. I therefore limit the study to firms whose only remuneration
explicitly related to earnings is bonuses. Fox (1980) ...
A number of drugs used in cancer chemotherapy induce oxidative
stress by generation of oxygen free radicals (ROS) which might
be an alternative mechanism for their cytotoxic effect via indu-cing apoptosis. In order to clarify the roles of antioxidants in
chemotherapy, we investigated Quercetin (3,3’,4’,5,7-pentahyd-roxyflavone) and N-acetylcysteine (NAC) in different cell types
treated with anticancer drugs. We studied cytotoxic activity of
Topotecan alone and/or in combination with Quercetin in two
human breast cancer cell lines, MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231. ...
