A formalism will be presented in this paper which makes it possible to realise the idea of assigning only one scope-ambiguous representation to a sentence that is ambiguous with regard to quantifier scope. The scope d e t e r m i n a t i o n results in e x t e n d i n g this representation with additional context and world k n o w l e d g e conditions. If there is no scope determining information, the formalism can work further with this scope-ambiguous representation. Thus scope information does not have to...
An algorithm for generating the possible quantifier scopings for a sentence, in order of preference, is outlined. The scoping assigned to a quantifier is determined by its interactions with other quantifiers, modals, negation, and certain syntacticconstituent boundaries. When a potential scoping is logically equivalent to another, the less preferred one is discarded. The relative scoping preferences of the individual quantifiers are not embedded in the algorithm, but are specified by a set of rules.
Texas operates a family planning program for more than one hundred thousand low-
income women called the Women’s Health Program (WHP); it is currently administered under a
waiver from the Medicaid program. Earlier this year, the state adopted a policy to exclude
family planning clinics that are Planned Parenthood affiliates from participating in the WHP.
On behalf of its clients, PGGM Investments manages
several real estate investment portfolios structured
around listed real estate and private real estate.
PGGM Investments recognizes the impact real estate
has on the environment as well as on societal
systems, for instance with regard to CO2 emissions.
This document addresses PGGM Investments’ policy
on integrating material environmental, social and
governance (ESG) issues into our real estate
investments. The scope of this policy covers both
the listed and the private real estate portfolios.
The Directive's main aim is to ensure that the authority giving the primary consent (the
'competent authority') for a particular project makes its decision in the knowledge of any likely
significant effects on the environment. The Directive, therefore, sets out a procedure that must
be followed for certain types of project before they can be given 'development consent'. This
procedure, known as Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), is a means of drawing together,
in a systematic way, an assessment of a project's likely significant environmental effects.
Owners contract with sculptors who may then employ
contractors and subcontractors. Contracts define terms,
conditions and responsibilities of various parties. This
phase gives both sides a chance to negotiate until a
mutually agreeable contract is signed. An attorney can
be helpful in this phase.
Standard contract considerations between the artist and
owner typically include scope of services, liability,
insurance, indemnification, payment schedules and
timeline. In addition, the owner-sculptor contract should
itemize maintenance obligations of both parties. ...

SCOPE To determine the slump loss of freshly mixed Portland Cement Concrete over a period of time. This method is typically used for drilled shaft concrete. It may also be applicable in special circumstances as deemed necessary by the RCE. The purpose of this test is to ensure that drilled shaft concrete has a slump within the range specified in Subsection 701.2.12.3 of the 2007 edition of SCDOT’s Standard Specifications For Highway Construction when placed and maintains a minimum slump as specified in Subsection 712.4.13.
Chapter 17 METHODS IN ENTOMOLOGY: COLLECTING, PRESERVATION, CURATION, AND IDENTIﬁCATION
For many entomologists, questions of how and what to collect and preserve are determined by the research project (see also section 13.4). Choice of methods may depend upon the target taxa, life-history stage, geographical scope, kind of host plant or animal, disease vector status.
We would like to know whether you feel there are areas that we should review,
and whether you think a statutory insurance code is desirable. In Part 4 of this
paper we have asked you to list those areas you think we should review, and to
rank them in order of importance. Your responses will be considered by the
Commissioners before they determine the scope of this project in the light of the
resources available to us.
The accounting treatment of investments in property, plant and equipment and intangible assets
entails the use of estimates to determine the useful life for depreciation and amortization
purposes and to assess fair value at their acquisition dates for assets acquired in business
Determining useful life requires making estimates in connection with future technological
developments and alternative uses for assets.

Simultaneous Equations Models
The Scope of Simultaneous Equations Models
The emphasis in this chapter is on situations where two or more variables are jointly determined by a system of equations. Nevertheless, the population model, the identiﬁcation analysis, and the estimation methods apply to a much broader
In Germany, works councils constitute the second important pillar of the in-
dustrial relations system and provide workers with the opportunity of employee
representation at the establishment level.
The participation rights are laid down
under the German Works Constitution Act (Betriebsverfassungsgesetz) and include
consultation, co-determination and information rights, which generally increase in
scope the larger the establishment becomes.
Clearly, a straightforward implication of wages being determined by sectoral
conditions would be that industry-level contracts oﬀer little scope for adjustments of
individual wages to ﬁrm-speciﬁc demand shocks, even if the latter are of permanent
nature. However, as demonstrated in Section 2.2, industry-level contracts do not
necessarily provide an obstacle to the adjustment of wages to local conditions, as
recent decentralisation tendencies in Germany have introduced the option of making
such wage adjustments.
There are no recent statistics determining the size and scope of the inbound incentive travel
market. The last estimates were provided in a report commissioned by the British Tourist
Authority and partners in 1996, which calculated the value of inbound and domestic incentive
travel (excluding air travel) to be in the region of £165 million per year.
The fact that hotels do not differentiate between conference and incentive travel group
bookings, makes it difficult to track occupancy levels.
The information required during implementation is
determined primarily by the scope of the project –
namely the purpose, results, activities, resource
requirements and budget – and by the management
arrangements (roles and responsibilities).
At the purpose and result levels, the key indicators and
sources of verification contained in the Logframe
matrix provide the focus for information collection and
Once the objective and scope are decided, it is necessary to determine what
activities are required to be carried out to meet the objective. The dependencies
between these activities can then be determined, which in turn allows resources
and timescales to be estimated.
This needs to be done for the whole project (project plan), and then in more detail
for the next stage of the project (stage plan). This step is concerned with the
overall project. The project schedule is not intended to direct resources to specific
activities on certain dates.
