Installation of new system. When no existing system is present, the designer must select the system that is most appropriate for the end user. High temperature hot water and steam/condensate systems are the most common types of distribution systems currently used on military installations. However, a new system should only use the temperatures and pressures necessary to meet the requirements…
Mapping and classiﬁcation of chemical compound names are important aspects of the tasks of BioNLP. This paper introduces the architecture of a system for the syntactic and semantic analysis of such names. Our system aims at yielding both the denoted chemical structure and a classiﬁcation of a given name. We employ a novel approach to the task which promises an elegant and efﬁcient way of solving the problem. The proposed system differs signiﬁcantly from existing systems, in that it is also able to deal with underspecifying names and class names. ...
We illustrate how the use of metaphorical views for reasoning with metaphor requires the mapping of information such as event shape, event rate and mental/emotional states from the source domain to the target domain. Such mappings are domain-independent and can be implemented by means of rules we call View Neutral Mapping Adjuncts (VNMAs). We give a list of the main VNMAs that appear to be required, and show how they can be incorporated into a pre-existing system (ATT-Meta) for metaphorical reasoning. ...
The opportunity to design enzymatic systems is becoming
more feasible due to detailed knowledge of the structure of
many proteins. As a first step, investigations have aimed to
redesign already existing systems, so that they can performa
function different from the one for which they were syn-thesized. We have investigated the interaction of electron
transfer proteins fromdifferent systems inorder to check the
possibility of heterologous reconstitution among members
of different chains.
The developers chose the 8088 over the 8086 because, while the 8088 worked on a 16-bit basis internally, it only
communicated with the outside world using an 8-bit data bus. Since the 8-bit DataMaster data bus already existed, the 8088
was the obvious choice. This bus connects the motherboard of the PC, where the processor and its support chips are resident,
to the memory and the expansion boards, which are plugged into the expansion slots.

The Soneplex DS3 Remote Control System provides for centralized manage-
ment of up to seven remotely located Soneplex Broadband Systems. By using
an existing overhead channel in DS3 links, provisioning, monitoring, and
alarm information can be easily attained without the need for a secondary
communications network. This channel is used to transport TL1, TBOS, or
menu messages from each remote Soneplex Broadband System to a network
Operating System or a craft terminal.
Cognitive radio is a hot research area for future wireless communications in the recent years. In order to increase the spectrum utilization, cognitive radio makes it possible for unlicensed users to access the spectrum unoccupied by licensed users. Cognitive radio let the equipments more intelligent to communicate with each other in a spectrum-aware manner and provide a new approach for the co-existence of multiple wireless systems.
SQL Server is a comprehensive, integrated, endtoend
data solution that empowers your
people by providing a more secure, reliable, and productive platform for enterprise data and
BI applications. SQL Server 2005 delivers powerful, familiar tools to IT professionals as well
as to information workers, reducing the complexity of creating, deploying, managing, and
using enterprise data and analytical applications on platforms ranging from mobile devices
to enterprise data systems.
You can enhance Oracle performance by adjusting database applications, the database
itself, and the operating system. Making such adjustments is known as tuning.
Proper tuning of Oracle provides the best possible database performance for your
specific application and hardware configuration.
Note: Oracle8 Tuning contains information that describes the features and functionality
of the Oracle8 and the Oracle8 Enterprise Edition products. Oracle8 and
Oracle8 Enterprise Edition have the same basic features.
Modeling multi-level complex systems is the object of this book.
Complex systems are assemblies of several subsystems and are characterized
by emergent behavior resulting by nonlinear interactions among subsystems for
multiple levels of organization.
The complexity of numerous systems is rooted in the existence of many levels
of self-organization corresponding to different time and space scales.
There is a need to provide general frameworks able to combine several scales
and reality levels of the complex systems in one coherent and transdisciplinary
Capitalism and socialism have not existed forever.
Capitalism came into widespread existence in the mid-1700s; socialism came into existence in the early 1900s.
Before capitalism and socialism other forms of economic systems existed:
Feudalism dominated the Western world from about the 8th to the 15th century.

water and air are virtually unlimited. Beginning with
steam generation, through distribution and utilization
and ultimately returning condensate to the boiler,
Spirax Sarco has the solutions to optimize steam system
performance and increase productivity to save
valuable time and money.
Energy is important for the existence and development of humankind and is a key issue
in international politics, the economy, military preparedness, and diplomacy. To reduce
the impact of conventional energy sources on the environment, much attention should be
paid to the development of new energy and renewable energy resources. Solar energy,
which is environment friendly, is renewable and can serve as a sustainable energy source.
Hence, it will certainly become an important part of the future energy structure with the
increasingly drying up of the terrestrial fossil fuel.
All the phenomena of nature are characterized by motion; this is an essential property
of matter, having infinity of aspects. For instance, the motion can be mechanical,
physical, chemical and biological; there correspond various sciences of nature. Among
them, mechanics studies the objective laws of the mechanical motion of material bodies,
the simplest form of motion of matter; we will deal with such a study in what follows.
The scientific study of matter has put in evidence its existence in the form of physical
The European Union plans to have its positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) system, Galileo, in initial operation in 2008. As envisioned, Galileo will function and perform similarly to the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS), the preeminent PNT system now in existence. Policy leaders and technical experts have been
Continuous queries are persistent queries that allow users to
receive new results when they become available. While
continuous query systems can transform a passive web into an
active environment, they need to be able to support millions of
queries due to the scale of the Internet. No existing systems have
achieved this level of scalability. NiagaraCQ addresses this
problem by grouping continuous queries based on the
observation that many web queries share similar structures.
We also see a wider role for audit committees, in typical circumstances, in
ensuring that the company has sound internal financial control systems and
systems for the control of non-financial risks, of the kind dealt with in the
Turnbull report ‘Internal Control – Guidance for Directors on the Combined
Code’. Some boards may decide to take on this role themselves or to delegate it
to a separate ‘risk committee’, and we would not wish our guidance to remove
Because this document is a benchmark, it does not cover the important requirements that
cannot be benchmarked, such as requirements for integration with existing systems (agent vs.
agent-less, transport mechanism, ports and protocols, interface with change control, usability
of user interface, storage type, integration with physical security systems, etc.).
Esfinge is a general domain Portuguese question answering system. It tries to take advantage of the great amount of information existent in the World Wide Web. Since Portuguese is one of the most used languages in the web and the web itself is a constantly growing source of updated information, this kind of techniques are quite interesting and promising.
