The extensive application of AI in domestic animals is demanding an efficient technique
with high rate of success. Methods of improving the success of AI are subsequently
emanating from continuous research in the areas of procuring the best quality semen that
also require employing a rigours semen evaluation system. This book was prepared with an
intention of creating a useful addition to an already available literature on different aspects
Furthermore, Americans have gotten more sophisticated about food and have learned
their fair share about wine. These days, wine tastings take place at the local liquor store,
and comprehensive classes can be had at community colleges and universities,
democratizing a formerly elite subject (Malone, 2003). In the past, diners were at the
mercy of the sommelier, now they read books like “Wine for Dummies” and make
authoritative choices on their own.
Providers who agreed to participate and scheduled an interview were sent a consent form
for the study and a baseline questionnaire (on services provided, type of clinical staff employed,
and number of WHP clients served) by email or fax to be returned to the interviewers. The phone
interviews lasted approximately 20-30 minutes each, were conducted by 2 researchers in order
for one to take notes, and were based upon interview guides developed for PPFA providers and
it is necessary to integrate the information of all the spectral images to classify tissues.
Multi-spectral image processing techniques [1-3] are hence employed to collect spectral
information for classification and of clinically critical values. In this paper, a new
classification approach was proposed, it is called unsupervised Vector Seeded Region
Growing (UVSRG). The UVSRG mainly select seed pixel vectors by means of standard
deviation and relative Euclidean distance.
Managing people effectively, so they contribute to an
organisation while being able to satisfy their own needs,
is vital for any organisation wanting to retain a competitive
edge. With the HRM BBS you’ll look at how employees
are recruited and selected, and how work is designed and
measured, so an organisation can create value from its
We find strong evidence that having access to a car is particularly important for black and
Latino workers. We find a difference in employment rates between car-owners and non car-owners
that is considerably larger among black workers than among white workers. Moreover, the car-
employment effect for Latino workers is significantly greater than the comparable effect for non-
Latino white workers yet significantly smaller than the effect for black workers.
The Congressional Budget Office consistently concludes that
infrastructure and other state spending provide considerable
boosts to the economy, while income tax changes for high-
income households have minimal impact on short-term
economic activity. Tax cuts for affluent households result
in small increases in spending, and tax hikes result in only
small decreases. Low- and middle-income households, on
the other hand, have little savings, and reductions in their
after-tax income result in equivalent reductions in spending.
The Mural Arts Program has created
more than 2,700 murals throughout the city and
is one of Philadelphia’s largest employers of artists,
employing more than 300 per year. Created two
decades ago as a response to graffiti and youth crime,
the program provides opportunities for more than
3,000 young people each year.
The way in which murals become focal points for
creating social capital is often underappreciated. To
get a mural commissioned, a neighborhood has to
organize and apply, contribute time and energy, and
agree on the themes and images to be represented.
Diagnosis is fundamental to the appropriate treatment
and wellbeing of the equine patient. Despite
the many excellent clinical texts that are available,
few seem to explain in sufficiently precise terms
which clinicopathological tests are appropriate or
how particular techniques should be performed.
The first edition of this book was designed to provide
an illustrated practical guide to the various diagnostic
techniques employed in equine medicine. This
second edition is an update by international experts
in the field.
Our results are as follows. We ﬁnd that - within the conﬁnes of the set of models
we consider - it is hard to account for a boom-bust episode (an episode in which
consumption, investment, output, employment and the stock market all rise sharply
and then crash) in a model that abstracts from nominal frictions. However, when we
introduce an inﬂation targeting central bank and sticky nominal wages, a theory of
boom-busts emerges naturally. In our environment, inﬂation targeting suboptimally
converts what would otherwise be a small economic ﬂuctuation into a major boom-
Use of ABHPs is surging but must be part
of a broader strategy to be effective
Account-based health plans can be an important
element in an organization’s health benei t
management if the right incentives and employee
education are attached. Today, 59% of companies
have an ABHP in place, with another 11% expectin
to add one by 2013. But ABHPs will not necessaril
result in lower costs without signii cant enrollment
Our results show that employers that take a
comprehensive approach to ABHPs (e.g.
A wide range of issues related to analysis of gas turbines and their engineering applications are considered in the book. Analytical and experimental methods are employed to identify failures and quantify operating conditions and efficiency of gas turbines. Gas turbine engine defect diagnostic and condition monitoring systems, operating conditions of open gas turbines, reduction of jet mixing noise, recovery of exhaust heat from gas turbines, appropriate materials and coatings, ultra micro gas turbines and applications of gas turbines are discussed.
The technique can be applied for
chlorophyll level monitoring in basic photosynthesis research, agriculture, horticulture, and
forestry. Abiotic stress (water deficit, salinity, heat, heavy metals soil contamination, intense
light, etc) affects significantly crop growth and yield in agricultural areas all over the world.
Thus, it is imperative to study their effect upon the crops and discriminate among abiotic
stresses using new noninvasive and nondestructive remote sensing precision diagnostic
The advantages of diagnostic cytology are that it is a non-invasive, simple procedure, helps
in faster reporting, is relatively inexpensive, has high population acceptance and facilitates
cancer screening in the field. Diagnostic cytology can be carried out by different methods,
which includes collection and examination of exfoliated cells such as vaginal scrapes, sputum,
urine, body fluids etc. Collection of cells by brushing, scraping or abrasive techniques is
usually employed to confirm or exclude malignancy.
