Arts-related real estate markets have paradoxical entry
barriers and advantages. There are barriers inherent
in the uncertainty of demand, zoning issues and the
costs of retrofitting old systems. At the same time,
entry barriers are lowered because the space demand is
flexible and often requires minimal high-end fixtures
Art-making, performance, craft production and
exhibition spaces attract users who want to adapt and
re-create space in flexible ways.
The role for Congress in this financial crisis is multifaceted. While the recent focus has been on
combating the recession, the ultimate issue perhaps is how to ensure the smooth and efficient
functioning of financial markets to promote the general well-being of the country while
protecting taxpayer interests and facilitating business operations without creating a moral hazard.
Product designers learned years ago that
they’d save time and money if they consulted
with their colleagues in manufacturing rather
than just throwing new designs over the wall.
The two functions realized it wasn’t enough to
just coexist—not when they could work together
to create value for the company and for
customers. You’d think that marketing and
sales teams, whose work is also deeply interconnected,
would have discovered something
Management Control the approaches, methodologies and frameworks applied by an agency to plan and
control the implementation of change initiatives for which it is responsible, in this context new policy
Program (or Programme) a temporary flexible structure created to coordinate, direct and oversee the
implementation of a set of related projects and activities in order to deliver outcomes and benefits related to
strategic policy objectives.
The fact that we all became wiser, learnt to look across cultural and historical barriers, was
essential. There were moments of deep concern and potential crisis, moments of gratitude and
achievement, moments of success in building a common analysis and perspective. The result is
clearly more global, more realistic, more forward looking than any one of us alone could have
created. We joined the Commission with different views and perspectives, different values and
beliefs, and very different experiences and insights.
I often enjoy my lunch at a small café named Holly Berry’s. It’s
one of those places where people quickly know your name, at
least your first name, where congeniality and food are offered
with equal gusto. I was talking to Jack, who most folks would describe
as a cook until they taste his food, at which point he’d be
better described as a chef. Jack asked me if I was writing a book
while on sabbatical and I said that I was, one about the concept of
the balance of nature. Jack allowed as to how he had not given a
great deal of thought to the...
In creating an ontology that represented these semantics, the first choice was to decide among OWL's three
sub-languages: OWL Lite, OWL DL, and OWL Full. Though OWL Full is the most expressive of the
three languages, the first two have several advantages. OWL DL and its formal subset, OWL Lite, are
guaranteed to be both computationally complete and decidable. The NCI Thésaurus is created using a DL
tool, so the restrictions of these two variants of the ...
The electricity industry is changing rapidly. The first years of liberalisation mainly brought competition between utilities. The separation of supply (retail) from distribution, however, and the introduction ofcompetition for residential customers has taken the electric utilities out of their familiar territory into the stroppy waters of fighting for the consumer.
.NET—A Whole New Game Horizon
For those who have been inside a cave for the last 2 years, .NET is Microsoft's new paradigm for creating
the next generation of Internet programs, allowing any site on the Web to offer and use services, and
joining the efforts from programmers around the world to make things better.
Integrating ecotoxicological concepts across a range of hierarchical levels, Ecotoxicology: A Comprehensive Treatmentfocuses on the paradigms and fundamental themes of ecotoxicology while providing the detail and practical application of concepts often found in more specialized books.
In recent years, there has been a paradigm shift in learning, speciﬁcally the
manner in which information is gathered and ingested. This is particularly no-
table in subject matter that covers great breadth or is rapidly evolving, such as
medicine, and more speciﬁcally, diagnostic imaging. Students and residents
(and for that matter, practicing radiologists) quickly turn to the Internet to
“Google™” unknown factoids, rapidly gathering information, in many cases
without source validation.
The tenor of the discussion surrounding the above-mentioned question “Is E-commerce
for me?” has changed in the brief period since the emergence of this paradigm. The
question is no longer “Is it for me?” but rather is “How can I harness the power of E-
business to deliver exceptional value for my customers?”
A starting point in developing an e-strategy may lie in analyzing an industries value

Generation and Paradigm
Generation ・Fundamental concept and structure of the systems, are maintained, and functions and performances are improved.
The first section introduces the basic concepts of number systems, storage of numerical data, and machine arithmetic. Chapters on the Intel math unit architecture, data conversions, and the details of math unit programming establish a framework for developing routines in engineering and scientific code. The second part, entitled Application Development, covers the implementation of a C++ program and flowcharting. A tutorial on Windows programming supplies skills that allow readers to create professional quality programs.
Novel system performance through nanostructuring has been recognized in many
branches of science in the latter half of the 20th century. In computer science,
the computational efficiency has improved by nearly four orders of magnitude
in 30 years, using energy consumed per operation as a metric. To achieve further
advances will require the reduction in size of electronic devices to the scale
of molecules; that is, a totally different type of computational machinery is required:
In my forty years within the natural health movement, I’ve been blessed to witness
the living food lifestyle spread its wings and soar. When I started the Hippocrates
Health Institute with Dr. Ann Wigmore in the 1960s, “raw” and “living” were not
words commonly associated with the way we eat. I developed a living foods program,
a radically new paradigm at the time, which demonstrated unquestionable
healing powers. One by one people would arrive at the Institute with grave illnesses
and depart revitalized by the simple preparations created from the uncooked
bounty of nature....
Scala is an exciting, modern, multi-paradigm language for the JVM. You can use it to write traditional, imperative, object-oriented code. But you can also leverage its higher level of abstraction to take full advantage of modern, multicore systems. Programming Scala will show you how to use this powerful functional programming language to create highly scalable, highly concurrent applications on the Java Platform.
In its most basic form, Lean Manufacturing is the systematic elimination of waste by focusing on
production costs, product quality and delivery, and worker involvement. In the 1950s, Taiichi Ohno,
developer of the Toyota “just-in-time” Production System, created the modern intellectual and cultural
framework for Lean Manufacturing and waste elimination. Ohno defined waste as “any human activity
which absorbs resources but creates no value.
One of the daunting challenges facing South Africa in the contemporary period is that of achieving social cohesion. Educational institutions should be at the cutting edge of the project to weave a common identity whilst promoting respect for difference. It was this challenge that motivated us to convene colloquia in 2003 and 2006 to discuss the current state of school desegregation and innovative ways to forge ahead in the complex processes of dismantling the legacies of the past and creating inclusive paradigms for our classrooms....
Satellite Communication can be an effective strategy to meet this need in a
technology-supported, cost-effective and time-efficient manner. This is evident from the
observation of Geray et al. (2007) who conducted a study to understand the level of actual
exposure and the types of young people exposed to a global media campaign to promote HIV
prevention among 16- to 25-year-olds by MTV programme “Staying Alive,” in 2002.
