Sea Lamprey Objectives
Reduce sea lamprey abundance to allow the achievement of other fish community objectives.
Obtain a 75% reduction in parasitic sea lampreys by the year 2000 and a 90% reduction by the
Species Diversity Objective
Recognize and protect the array of other indigenous fish species because they contribute to the
richness of the fish community. These fish – cyprinids, rare ciscoes, suckers, burbot, gar, and
sculpins- are important because of their ecological significance; intrinsic value; and social,
cultural, and economic benefits.

This paper proposes a method for organizing linguistic knowledge in both systematic and flexible fashion. We introduce a purely applicative language (PAL) as an intermediate representation and an object-oriented computation mechanism for its interpretation. PAL enables the establishment of a principled and well-constrained method of interaction among lexicon-oriented linguistic modules. The object-oriented computation mechanism provides a flexible means of abstracting modules and sharing common knowledge. ...
Dialogues may be seen as comprising commonplace routines on the one hand and specialized, task-specific interactions on the other. Object-orientation is an established means of separating the generic from the specialized. The system under discussion combines this objectoriented approach with a self-organizing, mixed-initiative dialogue strategy, raising the possibility of dialogue systems that can be assembled from ready-made components and tailored, specialized components.
On the eve of my departure on retirement after some 33 years of work in the service of the OECD Development
Assistance Committee -- since 1975 as DCD Director -- I naturally ask myself: What was done over all these years and was it worth it?
Rather than burdening the system with subjective impressions and reminiscences, I felt that it would be more sensible for me to leave behind an objective, matter of fact account of the DAC's activities and the related institutional and policy developments. This may even be of some use for the coming...
The Self-Organizing Map (SOM) is a neural network algorithm, which uses a competitive learning technique to train itself in an unsupervised manner. SOMs are different from other artificial neural networks in the sense that they use a neighborhood function to preserve the topological properties of the input space and they have been used to create an ordered representation of multi-dimensional data which simplifies complexity and reveals meaningful relationships. Prof. T. Kohonen in the early 1980s first established the relevant theory and explored possible applications of SOMs. ...
In the same way that a well-defined approach is needed to develop an effective strategic plan, an equally well-designed approach is needed to support the alignment of your organization's structure, management concepts, systems, processes, networks, knowledge nets, training, hiring, and reward systems.
This paper examines the incentives and disincentives for the adoption of Good Agricultural
Practices (GAPs) by farmers and by downstream handlers of farm outputs in developing
countries. GAPs cover a diverse set of objectives and have been developed by a wide array of
interest groups from private supply chain-driven systems tied to individual retailers, and
industry-wide systems driven by retailer or producer associations, to programmes developed
within national policy frameworks or promoted by international agencies....
The survey is designed to solicit input from those in the field of construction and
project management concerning leadership and the leadership skills. Questions centered
on the importance of leadership, the kinds of leadership skills people should pursue, and
the most-commonly used skills. A common survey process includes defining the survey
objectives, developing a sample frame, specifying the strategy for data collection, and
conducting the appropriate analyses.
Cross promotions among media companies, food sellers, and toy companies advance the
corporate goal, as one marketing expert put it, “to establish a situation where kids are exposed to
their brand in as many different places as possible throughout the course of the day or the week,
or almost anywhere they turn in the course of their daily rituals” (Kjos, 2002). Supermarket
shelves are filled with such links, such as Rugrats characters on packages of Kraft Macaroni &
Cheese. Tie-ins like these are designed to lure children into...

The object table itself is not mentioned in the query. The only table listed in the query is KEEPER. You do not need to know the name of the object table to DEREF its values. The entire referenced row object was returned, not just part of the row.
These are significant differences that separate object queries from relational queries. Thus, when querying your tables, you need to know the way in which their relationships are established.
As a successful Craigslist marketer, I have established unique and effective strategies for approaching
Craigslist. Put simply, I follow the rules of Craigslist and utilize basic SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
marketing techniques. While every property management company is different, most are in the process
of establishing Craigslist policies and guidelines. Some are successful; most are not. In this guide I will
share with you my successful techniques.
First, let us get to know the users of Craigslist.
In addition to redeﬁ ning the calculation of capital requirements and establish-
ing a supervisory review process under Pillars 1 and 2, Basel II imposes new
and enhanced disclosure obligations on credit institutions under its third pillar.
The purpose of Pillar 3 is to ensure greater transparency in terms of banks’
activities and risk strategies, as well as to enhance comparability across credit
institutions – which is all in the interests of market participants.
A marketing plan is essential for every horticultural business and for efficient and
effective marketing of any horticultural product or service. A marketing plan serves as a
road map. It establishes objectives, recommended actions, and timing for achieving the
objectives. An understanding of the marketing planning process is also a valuable aid in
helping managers organize their thinking about the marketing process and the various
methods and procedures used. A strategic marketing plan takes into account the market
environment facing the business (e.g.
New structures for water management have been put in place in many countries. Usually these have been influenced
by the need for integrated approaches to water management and consist of national (and state where relevant)
coordinating and regulatory structures, basin management and local water user structures. There are variations
according to local circumstances but usually they have been used to decentralise decision-making and to give more
voice to stakeholders (see Box 3.3).
Eligibility criteria for setting up a branch or liaison office center on the track record and net worth
of the foreign head office. For a branch, the head office must have a profit-making track record in
its home country during the immediately preceding five financial years (three years for a liaison
office). The net worth of the foreign head office cannot be less than USD 100,000 or its
equivalent to establish a branch (USD 50,000 or its equivalent to establish a liaison office).
Humankind’s fascination with Mars predates
recorded history. The bright planet with the reddish tint
is unique among the other celestial objects. Tycho
Brahe’s observations of its unpredictable motion were
deciphered by Johannes Kepler in the early 17th century
as he developed his laws of planetary motion.
Galileo trained his telescope on Mars and saw it as a
disk in 1610. Later in the 1600s, Christiaan Huygens
and Gian Cassini drew the first maps of the Martian
Studies show that one in every eleven women operates her own business. However,
while multitudes of these women-owned ventures are spreading, with their numbers
growing by the thousands each day, only about 5% make it to the classification of
businesses that are worth over a million dollars.

The Government has established NBN Co to design, build and operate a broadband network that
satisfies the four objectives laid out in Sub-Section 1.2.1, Key Objectives.
It is NBN Co’s understanding that once the NBN is available the Government will want to pursue the
achievement of public policy objectives in the areas of healthcare, education, aged care and other
areas, as deemed appropriate by Government. These additional services and policy objectives are
not part of NBN Co’s remit and hence, do not form part of NBN Co’s Corporate Plan.
In 1972, the Clean Water Act (CWA) delineated the basic structure for regulating discharges of
pollutants into waters and for establishing quality standards for surface waters under the authority of
EPA . Under the CWA’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System program, stormwater
permits were required for sediment runoff from construction sites and discharges of pollutants into
surface waters . The permitting system requires adoption of technology-based and water quality-based
effluent limits [11,12].
