At a pre-NAB event in April 2005, Apple released the second version of Motion along with new revisions of the other Pro applications, optimised for the Power Mac G5 and Mac OS X 10.4.
In January 2006 Apple stopped selling Motion as a stand-alone product. Introduced at NAB in Las Vegas on April 15, 2007, Motion 3 was included as part of the Final Cut Studio 2 suite.
The latest version, Motion 5, was introduced on June 21st, 2011. It is available through the Mac App Store at a reduced price of $49.99. Motion 5 is now sold as a stand-alone product.
The availability of efficient and cost-effective technologies to repair or extend the life of aging military airframes is becoming a critical requirement in most countries around the world, as new aircraft becoming prohibitively expensive and defence budgets shrink. To a lesser extent a similar situation is arising with civil aircraft, with falling revenues and the high cost of replacement aircraft.
The process, as described in step (c) is repeated for a shorter time to expose
the bottom silicon surface for further dry etching, as shown in Fig. 9(g). In order to expose sidewalls for
the wet etch release, the structure is deepened using a similar multi-step dry etch process as described in
step (d), except that low energy, high pressure isotropic dry etching is used instead of high energy, high
pressure to preserve the less robust silicon dioxide that had taken the place of Cr as the etch mask. This
deepening of the structure determines the gap between the...
Non-compositional expressions present a special challenge to NLP applications. We present a method for automatic identification of non-compositional expressions using their statistical properties in a text corpus. Our method is based on the hypothesis that when a phrase is non-composition, its mutual information differs significantly from the mutual informations of phrases obtained by substituting one of the word in the phrase with a similar word.
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.
In a similar way, environmental considerations are frequently viewed as barriers to profitability. They are viewed as necessary evils, costs to be minimized, or regulations with which to comply. The environment is rarely considered central to business strategy unless there is some regulation that constrains business goals, a mess to clean up, or a public issue which pits executives against environmentalists. Historically, business people neither have been encouraged nor discouraged to get involved with environmental concerns.
The data revealed some potential trends in illicit activity. Some of the typologies
evidenced in the narratives appeared very similar to classical examples of the money
laundering stages of layering and integration.
For example, subjects sometimes
used multiple cash equivalents (e.g., cashier’s checks and money orders) from differ-
ent banks and money services businesses to make policy or annuity payments, and
then cashed out the insurance products to potentially disguise the original source
of the funds.
Steel mills that recycle scrap metal face a similar
incidental emissions problem. North American
automobile manufacturers have used hundreds of
thousands of kilograms of mercury in vehicle
switches and other applications, such as headlights.
Much of this mercury enters the atmosphere when
the scrapped cars are melted down to make new
steel, while some of it contaminates the ground in
the yards where the cars are crushed or shredded.
Nearly all of the mercury found in cars enters the
Our approach to deﬁning a security protocol for sensor networks is resource driven and factors in the trade
offs between levels of security and the requisite power and computational resources. Primarily, we envision a
scenario where a protected perimeter based on sensors is dynamically deployed. However, similar scenarios could
be envisioned in an environment where the topology is well known in advance and the sensor network is pre-
conﬁgured. Our operating paradigm is where data is reported to a computationally robust central location such as
a base station or network controller....
There are many different types of housing in
Canada. Housing types are similar across the
country. Often, different words describe the same
type of housing in different parts of the country.
In Canada, each level of a house or a building is a
storey. A storey is one level. The ground level or
ground floor is the first storey, the second floor is
the second storey. A basement is not a storey.
Canadian houses almost always have finished or
unfinished basements. A basement is not
the same as a cellar. To Canadians, a cellar is an
unheated storage space below ground.
Eleven million tonnes of waste are produced yearly by the European pulp and paper industry, of which 70% originates from the production of deinked recycled paper. Wastes are very diverse in composition and consist of rejects, different types of sludges and ashes in mills having on-site incineration treatment. The production of pulp and paper from virgin pulp generates less waste but the waste has similar properties to waste from the production of deinked pulp, although with less inorganics [...].
Semantic parsing is the task of mapping natural language sentences to complete formal meaning representations. The performance of semantic parsing can be potentially improved by using discriminative reranking, which explores arbitrary global features. In this paper, we investigate discriminative reranking upon a baseline semantic parser, S CISSOR, where the composition of meaning representations is guided by syntax. We examine if features used for syntactic parsing can be adapted for semantic parsing by creating similar semantic features based on the mapping between syntax and semantics.
