The language of law reflects the overlapping, competing and co-existing nature of legal discourse; its form both the product of its linguistic history and a response to the fluidity of legal culture. This book examines legal language as a language for special purposes, evaluating the functions and characteristics of legal language and the terminology of law. Using examples drawn from major and lesser legal languages, it examines the major legal languages themselves, beginning with Latin through German, French and English.
Biofuels such as bioethanol are becoming a viable alternative
to fossil fuels. Utilizing agricultural biomass for the production
of biofuel has drawn much interest in many science and
engineering disciplines. As one of the major crops, maize
offers promise in this regard. Compared to other crops with
biofuel potential, maize can provide both starch (seed) and
cellulosic (stover) material for bioethanol production.
This is an extraordinary book, in which I am honoured to be included,
and which I am even more privileged to be able to introduce. It contains
contributions from an array of the leading thinkers in the field of product
liability; and it provides substantial food (non-standard, and certainly not
defective) for thought for practitioners, academics and students alike.
(BQ) Addressing design for automated and manual assembly processes, Assembly Automation and Product Design, Second Edition examines assembly automation in parallel with product design. The author enumerates the components, processes, performance, and comparative economics of several types of automatic assembly systems.
In January 1993, the RAND National Defense Research Institute was asked by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition to compare the practicality and cost of two approaches to future submarine production: (1) allowing production to shut down as currently
Large expenses associated with rice production and dependence on energy related inputs like fuel and fertilizer in particular compel rice producers to use management practices that are input efficient and result in least cost. This study uses data envelopment analysis (DEA) to calculate technical efficiency (TE), allocative efficiency (AE), and economic efficiency (EE) for rice production in Arkansas at the field level using data from 137 fields enrolled in the University of Arkansas, Rice Research Verification Program (RRVP) from 2005 to 2011.
This book became possible thanks to ﬁnancial support from the Uni-
versity of Leicester and the Training and Mobility of Researchers Marie
Curie Programme of the Commission of the European Union.
The comparative research for this project was conducted in the li-
braries of the universities of a number of European countries, as well as
in the USA.
Universal sensitivity to our environment and environmental
considerations have led to the development of projects that not
only minimize GHG (Green House Gas) emissions, but also help to
displace GHG emissions from existing plants as well as other
emissions sources. Thus, one of the more significant advantages
for gas turbine, combined cycles and gas reciprocating engines is
the potential for GHG reductions as compared to less efficient
Chitosan with small content in the feed (0.48 - 0.75%) could be selected to prepare shrimp feed-pellet having so high water-stability that met the Standard of Vietnam Ministry of Fisheries 28-TCN 102/1997. The radiation treatment at sterilization doses (20 - 30 kGy) was evaluated as the most practical technology because irradiated chitosan with reduced content of 0.34% has capacity to be prepared feed-pellets as stable as comparable to imported products.
This chapter introduces you to the basis for exchange – comparative advantage. You will learn how to identify comparative advantage, and to calculate the gains from specialization and trade between people and between countries.
Food availability, access, stability and utilization are all part of the multi-dimensional nature of food security. The “availability” aspect, discussed here, refers to the availability of sufficient quantities of food of appropriate quality, supplied through domestic production or inputs.
Productivity is usually considered the ultimate benchmark when comparing the performance of agricultural systems. For example, those involved in agricultural research and development want to know how much yield would be reduced if conventional agriculture were converted to organic agriculture.
- of the third edition, while maintaining an emphasis on nutrition and, in particular, the effects of
processing on the nutritive value of the products as compared with that of the raw cereals.
However, some new material has been introduced, notably sections dealing with extrusion cooking
and the use of cereals for animal feed, and the section on industrial uses for cereals has been considerably
A change in the fourth edition, which readers of earlier editions will notice, is the order in which
the material is presented.
Working with friends is always a pleasure, but commenting on an outstanding product of
friends is a greater pleasure. I have known Professors Aman Khan and W. Bartley Hildreth
for many years. I now even occupy the same position at LSU that Professor Hildreth previously
occupied. Over those years, I worked with them on several projects and found a
great deal of joy in contributing with them to an improving literature of public budgeting
and financial management.

Consumer packaged goods companies are always challenged to introduce new
product innovation that strongly resonates with consumers and that sets them
apart from products currently in the market. An Ipsos global survey showed
consumers rank food and beverage, personal and household products low on
the list of innovative products compared to computer equipment and electron-ics (Palmer, 2009).
This book arises out of a project funded by Scottish Homes, as part of EC
Competitive Renewal Initiatives in Sustainable Europe Network Group. Our
first acknowledgement is to the support of Scottish Homes for enabling this
research to be conducted. Equal thanks are due of course to all the persons
who offered us their time for interviews in the course of the research project
in the five countries studied. Also, we would like to thank Alison Smith for
her help in preparing the book. Finally, we would like to thank Dymphna
Evans of Edward Elgar for her support....
Two major approaches to cryopreservation are known, i.e., conventional freeze-thaw
procedures and vitrification, which is defined as a glass-like solidification (Karlsson &
Toner, 1996). While freeze-thaw procedures minimize the probability of intracellular ice
formation, vitrification attempts to prevent ice formation throughout the entire sample
during the cooling and warming process (Kuleshova et al., 2007). Recently, the potential of
vitrification has been tested for tissue-engineered constructs.
We have learned to what it takes to get ready for export, how to identify and find market
outlets for products, and tips for going after the target markets.
To sum up, we have provided an example of how one Wildlife Friendly product,
specialty yarn, used the steps in this guide to identify and prioritize market outlets for
We encourage you to use these same steps for your own products and start talking to
potential buyers. Remember, offer a high quality product, tell the buyer about the
wonderful natural beauty and endangered wildlife being protected...
The duty and performance of the vacuum mixing and reacting technology for the preparation of lead/acid battery paste is reported. The production results achieved under vacuum are compared with those of conventional, air-cooled plants. Due to the more effective cooling and the use of a closed system, improvements such as reduced burned-lead portion, control of paste composition and formulation accuracy, and independence of climatic conditions are achieved.
By calculating seismic risk for the corresponding design solutions and compare them for different
seismic forces, it can find the seismic forces to the total cost including
The initial construction costs and the risk of earthquakes can be minimized. This target is called "seismic
design forces "in the chapter. Although this method involves complicated procedures,
forces needed for earthquake design goals are higher than expected for the design of long
bridges and other structures are important as seat belts from the perspective of
seismic risk management....
