o the folks at Sybex, especially Tom Cirtin who made this book available, Acey J. Bunch
for his technical expertise, and Erica Yee and Judy Flynn for their contributions to this
book. I want to thank Rodnay Zaks, the president of Sybex, who signed the contract. I also
extend my thanks to the other people in the Sybex team.
I still need to thank other people, especially the readers who have provided me with their
comments and suggestions about my previous works. During the process of writing this
book, the test monkey in Chapter 3 frequently reminded me of my early days as a schoolboy.
Transfers of land rights should be based on users’ voluntary and informed
agreement, provide them with a fair level of proceeds, and should not involve
expropriation for private purposes. To create these preconditions, local people
need to be aware of their rights, the value of their land, and ways to contract,
and have assistance in analyzing investment proposals, negotiating with
investors, monitoring performance, and ensuring compliance.
THE VENTURE CAPITAL INDUSTRY has grown dramatically over the last decade. In the
United States, venture capital (hereafterVC) investments grew from $3.3 billion
in 1990 to $100 billion in 2000. In Europe, funds invested in VC grew from $6.4
billion in 1998 to more than $10 billion in 1999.The success of VC is largely due
to the active involvement of the venture capitalists.These so-called hands-on investors
carefully select the investment projects they are proposed (Sahlman
(1988, 1990)) and remain deeply involved in those projects after investment is realized.
The Psychologist’s Companion is intended for students as well as young professionals
and writers at all stages of their careers seeking inspiration and guidelines
for better scientific writing. This book is also a resource for researchers
in related fields.
“Workers’ Compensation Costs” (WC) ranks as the 10th most important problem in this
survey, down from its 3rd position in the 2004 survey. About one-quarter of business own-
ers regard WC costs as critical, one-third lower than four years ago. In some states, such as
Arizona and California, WC systems have been reformed and rates lowered. Also, safer work-
places due to improved working environments and a shift in the employment base from more
hazardous manufacturing jobs to relatively safe service positions contribute to lower rates.
Split wedge gate valves, as shown in Figure 7, are of the
ball and socket design. These are self-adjusting and self-
aligning to both seating surfaces. The disk is free to
adjust itself to the seating surface if one-half of the disk
is slightly out of alignment because of foreign matter
lodged between the disk half and the seat ring. This
type of wedge is suitable for handling noncondensing
gases and liquids at normal temperatures, particularly

Mechatronic Experiments Course Design: A Myoelectric Controlled Partial-Hand Prosthesis Project
Ton-Tai Pan, Ping-Lin Fan, Huihua Kenny Chiang, Member, IEEE, Rong-Seng Chang, and Joe-Air Jiang, Member, IEEE
Abstract—This paper describes a proposed laboratory project involving the design of a myoelectric-controlled partial-hand prosthesis to reinforce mechatronic education. The proposal focuses mainly on extract electromyogram (EMG) signals generated during contraction of the biceps.
Demand expression varies by the kind of goods or services being
delivered. Water supply and latrines are an example of essentially
private goods, goods that are individually used and for which indi-
vidual users can express and realize a willingness to pay. Public
choices are more complicated with respect to public goods such as
schools or rural roads; a differentiated strategy for eliciting demand,
depending on the kind of subproject that is being produced, is needed.
In January 1976, the Transportation Energy Conservation (TEC) Division of the Energy
Research and Development Administration contracted with Oak Ridge National Laboratory
(ORNL) to prepare a Transportation Energy Conservation Data Book to be used by TEC staff in
their evaluation of current and proposed conservation strategies. The major purposes of the Data
Book were to draw together, under one cover, transportation data from diverse sources, to
resolve data conflicts and inconsistencies, and to produce a comprehensive document.
The decision-making process outlined in this handbook assume that you will seek com-
petitive bids or award a sole-source contract. These two methods are highly recommended
for works of art because potential contractors will be judged on the quality of their work and
appropriateness of their background.
Soliciting competitive bids is preferable if you are just beginning to work with conserva-
tors, if the project is large or long-term, or if you are required to solicit bids.
Whether you are soliciting competitive bids or negotiating a sole-source contract, you should
describe your project and your expectations in writing. Use a request for proposals (RFP) to
review the overall purpose of the project, including which sculptures are involved. State who will
supervise the project, what the expected timetable is, and what the proposal deadline is. Outline
the type and extent of insurance the conservator will be expected to carry, and spell hout any
special circumstances the bidders should know about.
If your project is large or if you have no experience in selecting conservators, consider
contracting with a conservator to prepare the RFP and help evaluate the responses. The time
and money you invest in developing complete, accurate specifications will pay off in the
form of thorough proposals. Often, a government agency will permit a sole-source contract
for this purpose.
Remember that a conservator invests considerable time and resources in putting together
an effective proposal. Some qualified professionals will not submit proposals without com-
If you have obtained competitive bids, the proposals are the grounds for your decision and
ultimately for the contract. In the case of a sole-source contract, the proposal is the basis for
agreement between client and conservator on the scope of work, fee, schedule, and other
To evaluate proposals in either case, form a small advisory committee of knowledgeable
people who can assess the technical merits of each conservator’s experience, methods and
materials, schedule, and fee.

IHE ACS SYMPOSIUM SERIES was first published in 1974 to provide
a mechanism for publishing symposia quickly in book form. The
purpose of this series is to publish comprehensive books developed
from symposia, which are usually "snapshots in time" of the current
research being done on a topic, plus some review material on the
topic. For this reason, it is necessary that the papers be published as
quickly as possible.
Before a symposium-based book is put under contract, the
proposed table of contents is reviewed for appropriateness to the topic
and for comprehensiveness of the collection.
Authorities for Transaction and Payment approval should understand that the authority
carries responsibility and that they are accountable for their actions. They are free to
investigate as necessary to satisfy themselves that transaction and payment approval is
correct and appropriate. It is also understood that if they cannot accept full
responsibility, the items should be passed to a higher level for approval.
