The study aims to: make comparison and contrast between English and Vietnamese requests and discuss common strategies for requests made by both ENDS and VNS to give an insight into making requests for Vietnamese learners of English; provide some pedagogical suggestions for Vietnamese learners of English.

A key reason is that agricultural production has few technical (dis) economies of scale, implying that a
range of production forms can coexist. A look at the 300 or so publicly listed companies in table 4
illustrates this point. Even though farming accounts for 22 percent of the global agricultural value chain, it
makes up a mere 0.2 percent of equity market capitalization. As of October 2009, there were only seven
publicly listed farming companies worldwide, three in Brazil and Argentina and four in Ukraine and
In this paper, we consider the extent to which these
quality of life issues are supported by governmental
action in Canada and four comparison nations. The
information relevant to these issues comes primarily
from two types of data sources: indicator analyses
from international reports and intensive and detailed
policy analyses of two policy issues of particular
importance to women: childcare provision and gov-
ernmental support for community-based long-term
Canadian data are contrasted with those from Den-
mark, Sweden, the UK, and the US.
Despite attempts to secure harrnonisation of accounting practice, significant variations in
accounting rules and practice continue to arise in European countries, variations which give
rise to compliance costs for multinational companies.
Firstly, this paper considers the relevance of international accounting harmonisation for
European business. It then proceeds to examine accounting regulation in three countries:
Spain, Sweden and Austria, highlighting the key regulatory issues of the 'true and fair' view
requirement and the link between taxation and accounting.
Some consider their job to be to simply listen to what others have to say and then bring
that information back to their client.
Sleuthing for a company is an increasingly popular career choice. The SCIP says that its
membership has more than doubled in the last six years.
And U.S. companies spend a
total of $1 billion a year on competitive intelligence programs.
This is in contrast to the
$45 billion that Fortune 100 companies lost to thefts of proprietary information in 1999.
This amount continues to increase.
This project measures and classifies language variation. In contrast to earlier dialectology, we seek a comprehensive characterization of (potentially gradual) differences between dialects, rather than a geographic delineation of (discrete) features of individual words or pronunciations. More general characterizations of dialect differences then become available. We measure phonetic (un)relatedness between dialects using Levenshtein distance, and classify by clustering distances but also by analysis through multidimensional scaling.
The trend in information retrieval systems is from document to sub-document retrieval, such as sentences in a summarization system and words or phrases in question-answering system. Despite this trend, systems continue to model language at a document level using the inverse document frequency (IDF). In this paper, we compare and contrast IDF with inverse sentence frequency (ISF) and inverse term frequency (ITF). A direct comparison reveals that all language models are highly correlated; however, the average ISF and ITF values are 5.5 and 10.4 higher than IDF. ...
In this paper we compare and contrast two approaches to Machine Translation (MT): the CMU-UKA Syntax Augmented Machine Translation system (SAMT) and UPC-TALP N-gram-based Statistical Machine Translation (SMT). SAMT is a hierarchical syntax-driven translation system underlain by a phrase-based model and a target part parse tree. In N-gram-based SMT, the translation process is based on bilingual units related to word-to-word alignment and statistical modeling of the bilingual context following a maximumentropy framework. ...
Another interesting feature is the responsibility of the project manager. The Guide defines project
manager simply as "An individual responsible for managing aproject."
The Software Engineering
Institute goes further and calls it "The role with total business responsibility for an entire project; the
individual who directs, controls, administers, and regulates a project . . . [and] is the individual
ultimately responsible to the end user.
This study investigated the potential impact of e-learning on raising overseas students'
cultural awareness and explored the possibility of creating an interactive learning
environment for them to improve their English academic writing. The study was based on
a comparison of Chinese and English rhetoric in academic writing, including a comparison
of Chinese students' writings in Chinese with native English speakers' writings in English
and Chinese students' writings in English with the help of an e-course and Chinese
students' writings in English without the help of an e-course.
This paper uses sequential stochastic dominance procedures to compare the joint
distribution of health and income across space and time. It is the first application of
which we are aware of methods to compare multidimensional distributions of income
and health using procedures that are robust to aggregation techniques. The paper’s
approach is more general than comparisons of health gradients and does not require the
estimation of health equivalent incomes. We illustrate the approach by contrasting
Canada and the US using comparable data.

A comparison of mill capacity in China with capacity in North America and Europe
provides further perspective on the pollution management problem. Papermills in North
American and Europe range from several hundred thousand to two million tons of
annual capacity. In contrast, the capacity of the largest mill in China is only 250,000
tons and any mill over 30,000 tons is classified as “large”.
