The Brush Strokes effect applies a rough painted look to an image. You can also use this effect to achieve a
pointillist style by setting the length of the brush strokes to 0 and increasing the stroke density. Although
you specify the direction of strokes, they are scattered randomly by a small amount to give a more natural
effect. This effect alters the alpha channel, as well as the color channels; if you have masked out a portion
of the image, the brush strokes “paint” over the edges of the mask....
Direct marketing is an effective marketing tool that SMEs should deploy as part of their everyday marketing activity. It is one of the most effective ways a small business can acquire new customers, retain existing customers and or increase the revenue potential of an existing base of customers
It must be noted that on 12 July 2010 the Commission proposed the extension of investor
compensation schemes to cover investors in UCITS. The amendments to Directive 97/9/EC
aimed to cover situations where a depositary is liable for the loss of assets of UCITS but is not
able to cover its liabilities. This should serve as an additional means to increase the protection
for investors in UCITS. However, at this stage this proposal has not been accepted by the
Council and is subject to further negotiations.
A banking entity may invest in or sponsor a covered
fund if (i) the banking entity is not directly or indirectly
controlled by a U.S. banking entity;
53 (ii) the banking en-
tity is a “foreign banking organization,” or, if not a foreign
banking organization, meets at least two of the following
tests: (a) total non-U.S. assets exceed total U.S. assets;
(b) total non-U.S. revenues exceed total U.S. revenues;
and (c) total non-U.S. income exceeds total U.S. income;
(iii) no ownership interests in the covered fund are of-
fered or sold to a U.S.
Leadership is one of the most important and essential factors in good project
management. Leadership can be seen as the art of influencing others to achieve desired
results. Leaders guide behaviors by setting the vision, direction and the key processes; in
other words, leadership has a large influence on the whole project process, including the
actions of others.
Jack Welch, previous CEO of General Electric, is reported to have called his
direct reports together one day and issued a three word dictum: “Don’t manage!
Fourth, this study applies new methodologies which have never been applied to
emerging markets. For instance, Chapter 5 explores the determinants of risk-adjusted mutual
fund performance using multidimensional regression in addition to the common approach,
which is to use a zero-cost trading strategy. This alternative methodology can explore several
factors simultaneously while controlling the effect between one and another. Using the two
methods allows us to examine determinants of fund performance statistically and
economically and it provides more meaningful results.
Many distributed storage systems achieve high data access through-
put via partitioning and replication, each system with its own ad-
vantages and tradeoffs. In order to achieve high scalability, how-
ever, today’s systems generally reduce transactional support, disal-
lowing single transactions fromspanning multiple partitions. Calvin
is a practical transaction scheduling and data replication layer that
uses a deterministic ordering guarantee to signiﬁcantly reduce the
normally prohibitive contention costs associated with distributed
This book is a direct outgrowth of my experiences teaching C++ to professional programmers. I've found that most students, after a week of intensive instruction, feel comfortable with the basic constructs of the language, but they tend to be less sanguine about their ability to put the constructs together in an effective manner.
• Limitations on “AS IS” sales of used cars: Low-income
consumers need a reliable car for transportation. Unfortunately,
consumers are often sold vehicles with known defects that are
hidden from the purchaser. While most states have lemon laws
that protect the purchaser of a new car, few states have effective
used car warranty laws. In most states dealers will commonly sell
used cars “AS IS” in order to disclaim the implied warranties that
otherwise apply. Some states have used car lemon laws or limit
disclaimer of warranties in used car transactions.
After studying this chapter you will be able to: Explain the relationship among vision, mission, strategy, and implementation mechanisms; create your personal leadership vision; use the common themes of powerful visions in your life and work; understand how leaders formulate and implement strategy; apply the elements of effective strategy.
In Cross-Language Information Retrieval (CLIR), Out-of-Vocabulary (OOV) detection and translation pair relevance evaluation still remain as key problems. In this paper, an English-Chinese Bi-Directional OOV translation model is presented, which utilizes Web mining as the corpus source to collect translation pairs and combines supervised learning to evaluate their association degree.
The results of experiments involving direct comparisons of root and penetrometer resistance
indicate that penetrometers experience two to eight times greater resistance than plant roots
penetrating soil (Table 1). Dexter (1987) suggests that this ratio of penetrometer resistance to root
resistance is positively correlated with soil strength, being greater in ‘stronger’ soils.
Part II of this book focuses on financial markets, markets in which funds are trans-
ferred from people who have an excess of available funds to people who have a short-
age. Financial markets such as bond and stock markets are crucial to promoting
greater economic efficiency by channeling funds from people who do not have a pro-
ductive use for them to those who do. Indeed, well-functioning financial markets are
a key factor in producing high economic growth, and poorly performing financial
markets are one reason that many countries in the world remain desperately poor.

Foreign direct investment may improve productivity through technology
transfer on the one hand, and it may also have other positive external effects through
corporate linkages (e.g. market access, or improved terms of financing) on the other
hand, thus promoting economic growth. These beneficial effects are not automatic,
though. Until the mid-nineties Hungary had played a leading role within the region
in attracting investments. After 1999, however, the country started accumulating
increasing competitive disadvantages as compared to its competitors.
