Photograph* of Faith from space show no political boundaries, reminding us that national distinctions arc
man made. But the agencies responsible for those pictures, other missions to Earth orbit, and probes to deep space
are inevitably national or multinational. Each has its own set of constituencies, procedures, capabilities, and
The book weighs in at an easily manageable 250 pages and is split into two main parts, plus four appendices. The first part forms the bulk of the text and is itself split into five sections, collectively themed around exploring a different aspect of metaprogramming Ruby on each day with a fictional mentor named Bill. One of the things I like about this book is that for the first time it draws this material together in one place, where previously it has been scattered across various different books and blog posts....
C# in Depth is a completely new book designed to propel existing C# developers to a higher level of programming skill. One simple principle drives this book: explore a few things deeply rather than offer a shallow view of the whole C# landscape. If you often find yourself wanting just a little more at the end of a typical chapter, this is the book for you.
Expert author Jon Skeet dives into the C# language, plumbing new C# 2 and 3 features and probing the core C# language concepts that drive them. This unique book puts the new features into context...
NASA’s exploration of planets and satellites over the past 50 years has led to the discovery of
water ice throughout the solar system and prospects for large liquid water reservoirs beneath the frozen
shells of icy bodies in the outer solar system. These putative subsurface oceans could provide an
environment for prebiotic chemistry or a habitat for indigenous life.
Association studies from north India probing
multiple loci across the spectrum of candidate cytokine
genes are scanty. The present study, therefore, was aimed
to bring in focus certain unexplored polymorphisms
in the context of tuberculosis susceptibility in north
Indian population. The role and importance of genetic
background in tuberculosis has now become univocal
with ethnicity playing a crucial role. Probing new loci
relating to tuberculosis susceptibility could suggest
novel approach in pharmacogenomics and therapy
to combat this pathogen.
In this context, it is important to stress that auditors have an important role to play and are
entrusted by law to conduct statutory audits. This entrustment responds to the fulfilment of a
societal role in offering an opinion on the truth and fairness of the financial statements of
audited entities. The independence of auditors should thus be the bedrock of the audit
environment. It is time to probe into the true fulfilment of this societal mandate. Certain
stakeholders have expressed concerns2,3,4
with regard to the relevance of audits in today's
