Basic Training in Chemistry is unique in that it gathers into one source the essential information that is usually widely dispersed. This book can be used as a quick reference guide to the different disciplines of Chemistry: the areas covered are General, Inorganic, Organic, and Instrumental Analysis. Although comprehensive in nature, Basic Training in Chemistry is not meant to replace any standard textbook but rather to be a supplement or additional source of information, or even a comprehensive review guide.
Word sense disambiguation algorithms, with few exceptions, have made use of only one lexical knowledge source. We describe a system which performs word sense disambiguation on all content words in free text by combining different knowledge sources: semantic preferences, dictionary definitions and subject/domain codes along with part-of-speech tags, optimised by means of a learning algorithm. We also describe the creation of a new sense tagged corpus by combining existing resources.
PSI President and CEO Karl Hofmann recalls:
“In just over 10 years, the YouthAIDS platform grew into a brand that drove attention and
resources for HIV prevention and education. PSI, at that time, was a highly successful
implementing organization but traveled below the radar with little brand awareness
except among a small set of development insiders. By creatively marketing the HIV
implementation arm of our organization in a more attractive and media friendly way,
Roberts was able to give YouthAIDS real substance and to raise diversified funds.
Many of the designations used by manufacturers and sellers to distinguish their products are claimed as trademarks.

Nevertheless, it is a widespread assumption that end-of-pipe technologies still domi-
nate investment decisions in firms. This is because there has been exceptionally little empiri-
cal analysis directed to the determinants of the use of specific types of abatement measures -
principally because of the paucity of available data. On the basis of a unique facility-level
data set based on a recent survey covering seven OECD countries (Canada, France, Germany,
Hungary, Japan, Norway, and the U.S.) we find a clear dominance of cleaner production in
these countries: Surprisingly, 76.
The field of LRSPs cited by the second highest number of respondents was, broadly
speaking, asset identification/categorisation. This includes, for example, the designation of
permissible investments and/or required investments for mutual funds as well as the
establishment of, and exceptions to, investment concentration limits for particular types of
assets. In most cases, member jurisdictions reported that credit ratings were used in both the
banking and securities sectors.
The field of photonics is enormously broad, covering everything from light sources
to geometric and wave optics to fiber optics. Laser and light source technology is a
subset of photonics whose importance is often underestimated. This book focuses on
these technologies with a good degree of depth, without attempting to be overly
broad and all-inclusive of various photonics concepts. For example, fiber optics is
largely omitted in this book except when relevant, such as when fiber amplifiers
The process, as described in step (c) is repeated for a shorter time to expose
the bottom silicon surface for further dry etching, as shown in Fig. 9(g). In order to expose sidewalls for
the wet etch release, the structure is deepened using a similar multi-step dry etch process as described in
step (d), except that low energy, high pressure isotropic dry etching is used instead of high energy, high
pressure to preserve the less robust silicon dioxide that had taken the place of Cr as the etch mask. This
deepening of the structure determines the gap between the...
FUNDS, SOURCES & RECEIVERS Before we go into the technicalities of FCRA, we try to get an overview of the money involved: how much money is received each year, who gives this money, who receives, and what is it used for. The data given in this section is mostly based on reliable sources (except the narratives in the profiles). However, please keep in mind that this is not all the foreign aid that flows into India – aid received and redistributed by the Government is not included here. Similarly, aid received by NGOs from UN Organisations or the World...
Modern Ruins By Tocath How to turn a modern day city into decaying ruins. Part 1 : Overview This tutorial will show you the steps and tricks I used in turning Hong Kong harbor into a wasted reflection of itself. Basically, we're going to turn this: Into this. Part 2: Planning Any photoshopped image must start with a great source. Ruins are no exception. For my H2H with Norrit, we were limited to Non-American, Non-European cities. I chose Hong Kong. Ideally, you want a city with a recognizable landmark or building. This can get tricky, as your contest may have...
Compared to other ecosystems, wetlands have received an exceptional amount of
attention. Wetlands are valuable as sources, sink and transformers of a multitude
of chemical, biological and genetic materials. They stabilize water supplies, clean
polluted waters, protect shorelines, and recharge groundwater aquifers. They have
increasingly become recognized for their unique ecological functions in the
environment and are the focus of increased research by scientists and study
programs by schools, communities, and nature centers.
Redmine is well-known as one of the best open source project management applications. But, it's also one of the best project hosting and issue tracking solutions. In addition it incorporates Wiki, repository management, forums, time tracking, and more. This book reveals the power of Redmine and manifests its exceptional flexibility and customizability.
ADC’s new Optical Normal Through Panel is the latest addition to its Pro Patch line of broadcast patching
products. This new fiber panel is designed to provide patch by exception, normal through functionality,
similar to copper-based patch panels. Traditional fiber patch panels require a fiber jumper to be in place at
all times. With this newly designed panel, however, all fiber “Source” and “Destination” connections are
on the rear of the panel, with a normal through connection between the “Source” and “Destination”
Submersibles are a large and nonhomogeneous group of vehicles that range from small unmanned autonomous vehicles such as Gavia and REMUS that can be carried by one or two men, to medium-large unmanned submersibles such as torpedoes, survey vehicles such as HUGIN and Blueﬁn, larger manned deep-diving vehicles such as the US Alvin and the Russian MIR up to naval diesel-electric submarines. With a few exceptions, all these use electrochemical power sources for propulsion.
industrialisation strategies adopted and economic policies followed have shown
great differences before and after 1980. An import substitution policy had been
implemented until 1980. However, after 1980, significant progress has been made
towards establishing the principles and fundamentals of a market economy through
the introduction of export-oriented industrialisation.
These reforms made significant contribution to the dynamism of the private sector
and improved the adaptability of Turkish economy to internal and external impacts.
Unemployment and under-employment have increased continuously over the last five years,
encouraging internal and external migration. Unemployment currently affects 11% of the labour
force and the informal sector accounts for more than 65% of economic activity, providing
sources of marginal employment and under-employment to a large percentage of adults of
working age and even to school-age children.
Concurrently, shifting political attitudes and disillusionment with the policies that have
been tried are giving rise to a new surge of debate and reform. Most visible in the 1990s
is the effort to reform the welfare system to increase work incentives and to limit its use
as a long-term source of support for able-bodied adults, even when they have small chil-
dren. Behind this policy change has been a decade-long ideological debate about the
nature and causes of poverty, pitting conservatives against liberals.
