  • For these firms, willingness to expand--and, in particular, to add permanent employees--depends primarily on expected increases in demand for their products, not on financing costs. Bank-dependent smaller firms, by contrast, have faced significantly greater problems obtaining credit, according to surveys and anecdotes. The Federal Reserve, together with other regulators, has been engaged in significant efforts to improve the credit environment for small businesses.

  • Bolted body panels have become increasingly common over recent years, with many vehicles now using bolted front wings, front panel assemblies, bonnet slam panels and bumper bar supports. Obviously accident damage on such cars is much easier to repair, allowing simpler removal/refit of panels, and also easier preparation and painting in some cases. Panels can be prepared, primed and painted "off-the-car" if a good colour match is possible. A close visual inspection usually shows exactly where a particular panel is bolted.

  • Howarth et al. [10] developed an approach for estimating the net nitrogen inputs to a region N that is highly correlated with average nitrogen transport in the rivers draining temperate regions (Fig. 2). Net N input to a region was defined as sum of N in fertilizer used, biological N fixation of agricultural crops, oxidized N in atmospheric deposition in the region, and the N in food and feed imported to the region minus the N in food and feed exported from the region. This approach assumes that there is no net gain or loss of N from soil organic matter.

  • The former NOP director Audit Report 01601-03-Hy 3 7 stated that the decision not to require regular residue testing was based on officials’ concerns about the cost of testing, and their position that the NOP regulations are process-based rather than a zero tolerance standard. The former director also stated that certifying agents did not want to pay for the cost of residue testing and that residue testing raises complex issues that must be addressed on an operation-by-operation basis.

  • Brentano and Meinong differ further in their respective accounts of the interrelations between the given categories. For whilst both see judgments as presupposing, i.e. as being dependent on, associated presentations, the Meinongian framework allows also a presupposition or dependence in the opposition direction: a presentation, too, may be dependent on a moment of conviction in the sense that it is associated with the disposition to make judgments of a given type.

  • From a performance standpoint, the progression of Moore’s law means that more and more processing cores are now being packed into each CPU. Data volumes are growing faster than expected under Moore’s law, however, so companies need to plan to grow the capacity and performance of their systems over time by adding new nodes. To meet this need, Greenplum makes it easy to expand and leverage the parallelism of hundreds or thousands of cores across an ever-growing pool of machines.

  • The goal of this project is to learn about the visual qualities that can be used to control aesthetics in visualization. Psychologists have identified emotional and cognitive properties believed to underlie the aesthetic judgement of images. Based on this work, I have chosen three visual qualities that appear promising to aesthetics in visualization. I propose to vary these qualities and conduct studies to evaluate the salience of each quality in terms of aesthetics. Statistical analysis will be used to detect any significant changes in aesthetic judgement or related properties.

  • Only staff who are authorized to disclose information would post it on social media. Therefore, the same or similar sign-off processes as traditional media would normally apply. However, the speed and informal nature of social media generate a higher risk of accidental or inappropriate disclosure, which must be guarded against by ensuring that clear practices and procedures are developed and that all staff are aware of these and adhere to them.

  • However, this does not mean leaders should make all decisions alone. Instead, respondents suggested that representatives from the team should be selected to assist in the decision-making process. Respondents also suggested that, for some key decisions which can affect the whole project, everyone should participate and be responsible for making decisions. Besides all the analysis above, the researcher also found an interesting phenomenon. As all questionnaires were sent both to people in the United States and China, the responses were almost the same.

  • Indeed, these tough times can be seen as an opportunity for the industry to reinvent itself. Perhaps, the industry has moved beyond the first phase, in which it established itself as a part and parcel of the investment matrix. The industry needs to evolve again to strengthen its position and proposition. It is probably time to question established wisdom and explore alternatives. In the present situation, there may be no single ‘silver bullet’ solution, but it will require a multitude of initiatives to be taken across the entire spectrum of activities of a mutual fund.

  • Being capable of publishing in peer-reviewed journals is commonly seen as an indicator of proper scientific research. It is the duty of a researcher to publish his results for the scientific community. Research can be seen as a product that must be sold to the target audience in the form of an article. In other words, research results do not exist before they are successfully published. The key people for getting one’s article accepted for publication are the editor-in-chief, editor, and reviewers.

  • This is an arrangement more commonly adopted for complex building construc- tions rather than for civil engineering works. Under it the promoter appoints one contractor to manage all the construction inputs by letting contracts him- self. These ‘works contracts’ are effectively sub-contracts to the management contractor. Many may be labour-only contracts, while others are for ‘supply and erect’. The promoter may retain rights to approve or disapprove appointment of a works contractor.
