Dependency analysis of natural language has gained importance for its applicability to NLP tasks. Non-projective structures are common in dependency analysis, therefore we need ﬁne-grained means of describing them, especially for the purposes of machine-learning oriented approaches like parsing. We present an evaluation on twelve languages which explores several constraints and measures on non-projective structures. We pursue an edge-based approach concentrating on properties of individual edges as opposed to properties of whole trees. ...
The goals of The diagnostic adaptive behavior scale: Evaluating its diagnostic sensitivity and specificity is comparing the DABS standard score of assessed individuals with and without and ID diagnosis and determining sensitivity and speciﬁcity of the DABS to correctly identify persons with an ID diagnosis from individuals who do not have an ID diagnosis; and evaluating the sensitivity and speciﬁcity across age groups 4–21 years old.
In evaluating the output of language technology applications—MT, natural language generation, summarisation—automatic evaluation techniques generally conﬂate measurement of faithfulness to source content with ﬂuency of the resulting text. In this paper we develop an automatic evaluation metric to estimate ﬂuency alone, by examining the use of parser outputs as metrics, and show that they correlate with human judgements of generated text ﬂuency.
Critical thinking has been speciﬁcally identiﬁed by colleges and universities, as well as by many employ-
ers, as a measure of how well an individual will perform at school and on the job. In fact, if you are apply-
ing to college or graduate school, or for a job, chances are your critical thinking skills will be tested.
Standardized exams, such as the SAT and ACT, have sections on critical thinking.
Thus, rather than merely being an exercise of redactive skills, writing enhances one’s
ability to ‘see’ by enabling the writer to abstract and objectify his/her understandings
from his/her concrete involvements (Ong, 1982).
For the pre-service teachers of this study, tutoring an ESL student in writing and
reflecting on that experience through the maintenance of journals were designed as
experiences that would provide them with opportunities to critically examine ways in
which ESL learners develop writing skills in English.
First we look up on the economic dependency as a component of economic deprivation. The
dependency status of a person identified as an indicator of freedom and autonomy of an
individual that reflects on the ability to transform his capability to the wellbeing (Sen 1992).
The studies of the wellbeing of the elderly gives that there is high degree of dependency in the
old age for both economic and Physical (Omran 1982, World Bank 1994). In the developed
world, it is protected by the intuitional and social care that one way curtails the incidence of
the dependency (Heslop, A. and...
many groups and individuals have been motivated to consider the potential for producing ethanol. Across the
country, farmer cooperatives, rural development coalitions, bio-energy advocates and others have gathered to
explore the process and prospects for developing ethanol production facilities. In many cases these efforts have
resulted in the successful development of ethanol plants.
In this study, we make use of a complete dataset of property trades by institutional-grade
REITs who are legally mandated to report such trades to the SEC in their 10-K and 10-Q reports,
thus providing both complete trading information and eliminating selection bias. We augment
this information with a dataset of property trades made by portfolio managers of private entities,
such as commingled real-estate funds, who have legally committed to disclose this information to
a private data collector under a strict non-disclosure agreement.
In recent years, completion of the sequencing of the human genome as well as the
genomes of dozens of other organisms and subsequent development of tools for comprehensive
analysis of other cellular constituents have revolutionized biology. These new
technologies, referred to broadly as “genomics,” have integrated biologic sciences with
information sciences and engineering.
Not all issues can be regulated. A marketing or promotion action may be legal but not considered ethical. Marketers must make decisions regarding the appropriateness of their actions. Companies are scrutinized for their ethics Ethics: Moral principles and values Ethics: Moral principles and values that govern the actions of and that govern the actions of and individual or groupindividual or group..
Advances in patient management have often been closely linked to the development of
critical quantitative analysis methods. Flow cytometry is such an important
methodology. It can be applied to individual cells or organelles allowing investigators
interested in obtaining information about the functional properties of cells to assess
the differences among cells in a heterogeneous cell preparation or between cells from
Evidence-based practice has become a common expression in the helping
professions over the last decade. Beginning with medicine and moving to
fi elds such as psychology and social work, the number of books on evidencebased
practice has grown signifi cantly. What makes this book different? This
book is aimed at preservice and in-service school-based mental health service
providers, such as school counselors, school psychologists, and school
social workers. It is not a research book. It is a book about research-infused
Product evaluation is an important part of brewing, whether performed informally or formally and
whether the product is from a commercial or home brewery. Formal beer evaluation serves three
primary purposes in the context of brewing competitions. First, the beer evaluations provide feedback to
the brewer concerning how well an individual recipe represents its intended beer style. This feedback
can be useful as recipes are fine-tuned and attempts are made to improve the beer. Second, beer
evaluations may provide brewers with troubleshooting advice.
We have not named people, agencies, or projects in this book. The authors have
done this both to honor the privacy of conversations and to reflect the fact that
any comment we quote represents a widely-shared viewpoint rather than that
of a single individual. The Listening Project (through which these conversations
occurred) was not evaluating individual projects or agencies, but instead focused on
understanding the long-term, cumulative effects of different types of international
aid efforts on people, communities, and their societies over time. ...
In an attempt to glean potential trends, this study divides the subjects of the 641
filings into categories based in part on their occupation and in part on their relation-
ship to the insurance or investment product involved in the transaction. The data is
derived from several sources on the SAR-SF: the narrative section (Part VI), Field 7
(“Occupation or Type of Business”), and Field 19 (“Is this individual/business associated/
affiliated with the reporting financial institution?”).
The study characterizes the subjects based on their relationship to the insurance
Poor nutrition is a major problem in older Americans. Inadequate
intake affects approximately 37 to 40 percent of community-dwelling individuals
over 65 years of age (Ryan et al., 1992). In addition, the vast
majority of older Americans have chronic conditions in which nutrition
interventions have been demonstrated to be effective in improving health
and quality-of-life outcomes. Eighty-seven percent of older Americans
have either diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, or a combination of
these chronic diseases (NCHS, 1997).
The Ohio Department of Insurance has created this
guide to help you understand some of the basics
of health insurance .This guide is intended to help
individuals, families, self-employed people and small
business owners evaluate their options .
If you have health coverage, try to keep it .Unless
the policy owner (you or your employer) stops
paying premiums, the health plan cannot cancel
your coverage — even if you get sick .The law allows
you to keep coverage through life-changing events
(divorce, changing jobs, job loss, etc .
Rising health premiums are exacerbating income
inequality and making coverage too costly for
many Americans. The Kaiser Family Foundation
found that employer-sponsored health
insurance premiums have more than doubled in
the last nine years, a rate four times faster than
wage increases.38 A study by McKinsey Global
Institute of widening income gaps among U.S.
The Originator makes a copy of the design documents and applies the check
print stamp (Checked Exhibit) for all persons involved in the checking process to sign-
off. The stamp also includes the design package/submittal number and date, check print
number, and signature of the Originator of the document with the date. If all the
individuals involved in the checking process will have consistent roles on the entire
package to be checked, a cover sheet may be added to the package. A single check print
stamp is applied to the cover sheet, instead of each individual sheet in the...
Haugeland (1998) eloquently describes the relation between mind and
world as one of intimacy, a ‘commingling’ or ‘integralness’ of mind, body,
and world. Cognition depends as much on aspects of the agent’s environment
as on the agent’s inherent properties. Because it is the joint eﬀect of these
properties that control cognition, their contributions to individual cognitive
processes cannot be considered one by one.
