The first computer programming book I read was entitled Programming Windows 3.0 by
Charles Petzold. This was around the time when Microsoft Windows 3.0 (circa 1992) once and
for all showed the industry that Microsoft was a company with a future. Writing code for Windows
back then was complicated by many things: lack of documentation, 16-bit architecture, and
the necessity of buying a compiler separate from the software development kit (SDK).
The purpose of this book, entitled Face Analysis, Modeling and Recognition Systems is to provide a concise and comprehensive coverage of artificial face recognition domain across four major areas of interest: biometrics, robotics, image databases and cognitive models. Our book aims to provide the reader with current state-of-the-art in these domains. The book is composed of 12 chapters which are grouped in four sections.
This document reports the results of a study entitled “Employer Partnership Initiative Analysis of Alternatives.” The purpose of this study was to examine opportunities for the U.S. Army Reserve and Army National Guard to strengthen their relationships with employers and citizen soldiers through the Employer Partnership Program.

Academic and policy interest in the U.S. welfare system has increased dramatically
over the past 15 years, an interest that has accelerated and is currently
at an all-time high. Beginning in the late 1980s with welfare reform initiatives in
a few states around the country and continuing in the first half of the 1990s as
more states made changes in their income support programs, welfare reform
culminated at the federal level with the passage of the Personal Responsibility
and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) in 1996.

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.
Debt settlement companies required consumers to pay an up-
front fee to join a debt assistance program that would eliminate the debt for a
fraction of the amount owed. Many offered to refund the fee if the customer
did not save a specified amount of money. Some groups claiming to be non-
profit organizations offered debt counseling services targeting consumers
with poor credit histories to help them obtain loans and credit cards or settle

This chapter introduces you to the Java language and gives you enough details to allow
you to write simple programs involving expressions, assignments, and console output.
The details about assignments and expressions are similar to that of most other highlevel
languages. Every language has its own way of handling strings and console output,
so even the experienced programmer should look at that material. Even if you are
already an experienced programmer in some language other than Java, you should read
at least the subsection entitled “A Sample Java Application Program” in Section 1.
This was the third and final year of the project run by CARE Australia. Following this, the hospitals will take over their own ongoing training/support programs for HIV/Aids prevention and care. Through better understanding of their legal entitlements, community groups will be better placed to pursue discussions with local Government staff and policy makers.
During the third year of the PPHE program, Dr. Pomeroy and Ms. Lesco incorporated elements of the
PPHE project’s curriculum into the developmental disabilities portion of the Department of Psychiatry’s
curriculum entitled Psychiatry in Medicine. As a result, important segments of Parent Partners in Health
Education will be added to this required curriculum, starting in the 2008-2009 academic year.
