A large majority of adolescents (both married and unmarried) do not have information on
sexuality, contraception, or STIs and HIV/AIDS (Barkat et al. 2000; Nahar et al. 1999;
Haider et al. 1997). Nevertheless, RH education has not been a part of the education
curriculum, and the existing service delivery system is not catering to the needs of
unmarried adolescents. The family structure in Bangladesh is still very strong and plays a
major role in the lives of adolescents providing support, love and care, but fails to
respond to the need for reproductive health of adolescents.
New technologies and software can collect data about the viewing habits and specific interests
of children without the knowledge or consent of either the children or their parents. For
example, interactive Web sites ask children about their interests, habits and preferences
through surveys or quizzes embedded in the games or activities featured on the sites. Marketers
can use this information to tailor their marketing messages and to encourage impulse buying of
products featured in programming or advertising. Web-based...
For the review of the WEEE Directive the European Commission (EC) has launched three
research studies analysing the impact and implementation of the WEEE Directive and potential
changes that might be required. This study is focusing on the total environmental, economic
and social impacts of the WEEE Directive. Secondly, it aims at generating options that can
improve environmental effectiveness, cost efficiency and simplification of the legal framework.
This study aims to complete the information needed for review of the WEEE Directive in
The path trailed by the composer up until then, however, was littered with obstacles. On returning to
Rio de Janeiro from Manaus, Villa-Lobos began to earn his living by working as an orchestra
musician in symphonic societies, cinemas and cafés. Simultaneously, he hung out with the city’s
street musicians, the ‘chorões,’ most of them low-level public employees who played at night at
events such as baptisms, marriages and birthdays held at suburban houses.
The antecedent history of viral
URI likely contributes to the speciﬁcity of these symptoms for
ABRS, but the extent to which this is true has not been
quantiﬁed. Similarly, although the differential diagnosis of
isolated nasal obstruction or facial pain is broad (and beyond
the scope of this guideline), the speciﬁcity for ABRS increases
when coupled with concurrent purulent nasal discharge (Table
Safety footwear must meet ANSI minimum compression and
impact performance standards in ANSI Z41-1991 (American
National Standard for Personal Protection-Protective Footwear) or
provide equivalent protection. Footwear purchased before July 5,
1994, must meet or provide equivalent protection to the earlier
ANSI Standard (ANSI Z41.1-1967). All ANSI approved footwear has
a protective toe and offers impact and compression protection. But
the type and amount of protection is not always the same.
Different footwear protects in different ways.

Since the collapse of central government in 1991 and the resulting civil war, there have been many
efforts to restore a central government in Somalia without sustained success. In 1991, the North
west zone (NWZ) declared the independent state of Somaliland, with its governing administration
in the capital Hargesia. The North east Zone (NEZ) declared itself as the autonomous region
of Puntland in 1998. Although governed by its administration in its capital Garowe, it pledges to
participate in any Somali reconciliation and reconstruction process that should occur.
Freezing is one of the oldest and most commonly used means of food preservation. It has
been known to be an extremely effective means of preserving food for extended periods
since Paleolithic and Neolithic times, when man used ice and snow to cool food. The cooling
effect of salt and ice was ﬁrst publicly discussed in 1662 by the chemist Robert Boyle, but
this technology was certainly known in Spain, Italy and India in the sixteenth century.

The storage life of fish or meat, or of a fish or meat product, depends on the acidity and water content of the product. External influences such as oxygen (from the air), micro-organisms, storage temperature, light and water secretion
In Salah – In Salah Gas is a joint venture between
BP (33 percent), Sonatrach (35 percent) and Statoil
(32 percent). The project comprises a phased
development of eight gas fields located in the
Ahnet-Timimoun Basin in Algerian Central Sahara.
The initial development focuses on the exploitation of
the gas reserves in the three northern fields. These gas
fields contain CO2 concentrations ranging from one to
nine percent, which is above the export gas specification
of 0.3 percent and, therefore, requires CO2 removal
The PRESS N series of burners covers a fi ring range from 171 to
1140 kW and they have been designed for use in civil installations
of average dimensions, like building areas and large apartment
groups or for use in industrial applications, like small or medium
Operation is two stage; a servomotor adjust automatically air
damper opening, to obtain the right air delivery on both stage.
The burners are fi tted with a microprocessor control panel which

The need for long-term care may begin
gradually as you find that you need
more and more help with activities of
daily living, such as bathing and
dressing or independent activities of
daily living (IADLs) such as household
chores, meal preparation, or managing
money. Or you may suddenly need
long-term care after a major illness,
such as a stroke or a heart attack. If
you do need care, you may need
nursing home or home health care for
only a short time. Or, you may need
these services for many months, years
or the rest of your life. ...
In addition, the marketing provisions of the AIFM Directive do not apply to the marketing of AIF’s shares or units that are subject to a current offer to the public on an EU-regulated stock exchange under a prospectus that has been drawn up and published in accordance with the Prospectus Directive (Directive 2003/71/EC) before mid-2013, as long as this prospectus is still valid.
Structural changes had happened previously in U.S. history without such radical effects
on cities, though they had certainly devastated some groups of workers. For example,
the carriage industry in Michigan was totally replaced by automobile manufacturing, but
there was little to offset the loss of automobile production in Flint. What, in fact, might
replace the lost sectors and employment in these cases? Two answers suggested them-
selves: services and high technology.
But the "environment" is where we all live; and "development" is what we all do in attempting
to improve our lot within that abode. The two are inseparable. Further, development issues
must be seen as crucial by the political leaders who feel that their countries have reached a
plateau towards which other nations must strive. Many of the development paths of the
industrialized nations are clearly unsustainable.
Meanwhile, the emergence of distinct business models, a trend pushed by globalisation and the
economic rise of Asia, is also forcing financial professionals to re-examine their roles. Chinese and
Indian companies in particular have gained global prominence while following their own rules and
customs of governance and relationships, bringing into question whether there are universal ‘best
practices’ that should be adopted – or at least adapted – by corporations with similar economic
The new economy moves at a pace never seen before. The new
economy is a knowledge economy based on brainpower, ideas
and entrepreneurism. Technology is the driver of the new
economy, and human capital is its fuel. The knowledge
economy is people-centric. Our economy has evolved from
manufacturing-intensive to labor-extensive. Fundamental to
success in the new economy is how companies obtain, train and
retain knowledge workers. The knowledge enterprise industry
is over $2.2 trillion. We expect the online component to grow
from $9.4 billion to $53.3 billion by 2003, a 54% CAGR.

Oracle Connection Manager is a software component that resides on its own computer,
separate from a client or an Oracle database server. It proxies and screens requests for
the database server. In addition, it multiplexes database sessions.
In its session multiplexing role, Oracle Connection Manager funnels multiple sessions
through a single transport protocol connection to a particular destination.
