The Theory of the Design of Experiments là cuốn sách đề cập tới sự hạ thấp tỉ lệ giới tính người khi sinh ra. Đây là một tài liệu nghiên cứu rất tỉ mỉ về giới tính-một vấn đề đang gây sự chú ý của rất nhiều các nhà dân số học trên thế giới.
Why study the theory of experiment design? Although it can be useful to know about special designs for specific purposes, experience suggests that a particular design can rarely be used directly. It needs adaptation to accommodate the circumstances of the experiment.
1928, Frederick Griffith, was one of the first experiments
suggesting that bacteria are capable of transferring
genetic information through a process known
§ 1944:Avery, MacLeod & McCarty - Strong evidence that
DNA is genetic material
§ 1950:Chargaff - careful analysis of DNA from a wide
variety of organisms.
Details of partnering are given in Section 1.9. There are two types: ‘term (or full)
partnering’ which covers an intention to carry out a series of projects together
or for a given period; and ‘project-specific partnering’, i.e. co-operation for one
job at a time.
Normally a promoter negotiates a partnering agreement with his consultant
(if he employs one) and a contractor of his own choosing, usually because of
past satisfactory experience of working with him.
We investigate the controversial issue about the upper bound of interjudge agreement in the use of a low-level grammatical representation. Pessimistic views suggest that several percent of words in running text are undecidable in terms of part-of-speech categories. Our experiments with 55kW data give reason for optimism: linguists with only 30 hours' training apply the EngCG-2 morphological tags with almost 100% interjudge agreement.

Quantitative Methods for Business provides an understanding of quantitative
business techniques. As the sub-title, The A–Z of QM suggests, the book is
an accessible guide to the use of a wide variety of quantitative methods that
have important and varied business applications. A range of techniques
are discussed and demonstrated using worked examples, all set in business
contexts. There are ‘road test’ sections where real uses of the techniques
The small world experiment comprised several experiments conducted by Stanley Milgram and other researchers examining the average path length for social networks of people in the United States. The research was groundbreaking in that it suggested that human society is a small world type network characterized by short path lengths. The experiments are often associated with the phrase "six degrees of separation", although Milgram did not use this term himself.
Our satisfaction in writing the second English edition of this book is easy to
imagine: not only are we assured of the utility of our work, but also have the
opportunity to enlarge and revise it.We have attempted to do this in various
ways. We have removed oversights and errors; we have made a few additions
and expanded a little on all chapters; we have re-written and simplified
various parts which students had found obscure or difficult to understand;
lastly, we have updated the bibliography, with the aim of offering useful
suggestions for further readi...
There are men who are commonly stigmatized as moneta~
cranks. The monetary crank suggests a method for making
everybody prosperous by monetary measures. His plans are.
illusory. However, they are the consistent application of a monetary
ideology entirely approved by contemporary public opinion
and espoused by the policies of almost all governments.
The objections raised against these ideological errors by the
economists are not taken into account by the governments,
political parties, and the press....
Globalization is perhaps only another name to replace the lacking one for what is
happening to (with) us humans in the name of techno-bureaucratic, commercial,
violent, amusing, consumerist process of creating a so-called global society of
knowledge and skills. "Globalization offers both a theory of everything and an
explanation of nothing" - suggests J. Annesley in Fictions of Globalization (2006).
However, daily deaths of children as a result of hunger, disease and malnutrition on a
massive scale in Africa, and elsewhere, is not fiction....
This book is the result of twelve years' experience in teaching university students to write special feature articles for newspapers and popular magazines. By applying the methods outlined in the following pages, young men and women have been able to prepare articles that have been accepted by many newspaper and magazine editors. The success that these students have achieved leads the author to believe that others who desire to write special articles may be aided by the suggestions given in this book.
The suggested guidelines in this manual have been developed from a number of sources,
and most are applicable to a wide range of mass public gatherings. These sources focused
on youth audiences attending large rock concerts and competitive sporting events because
of the difficulties and major incidents historically associated with such events. Many of the
guidelines derived from such experiences are applicable to a broad range of other events
that present their own challenges.
Certain types of events have an inherent capacity for special management problems.
A researcher may be under the illusion that his research will sell itself more or less
automatically. On the contrary, it is the duty of an author to write an article so that an
outsider can understand the main points and the reasoning logic with relative ease. Your
article competes against other submitted article proposals. The decision on acceptance is
not done based only on the article substance, but the readability of the article also matters.
Consequently, an article must have a clear and logical structure combined with fluent
We examine whether the predictability of future returns from past returns is due to
the market's underreaction to information, in particular to past earnings news. Past
return and past earnings surprise each predict large drifts in future returns after
controlling for the other. Market risk, size, and book-to-market effects do not explain
the drifts. There is little evidence of subsequent reversals in the returns of stocks
with high price and earnings momentum.
CO2 injection has recently been shown to provide significant enhanced oil
recovery from naturally fractured reservoirs1. Li et al. (2000) performed CO2
injection at 1750 psig on artificially-fractured cores after water flooding in a
dead-oil system. Gravity drainage was suggested to be the dominant recovery
mechanism in these tests, with significant tertiary oil recovery after water
flooding. The authors observed that the recovery of initial oil at the start of the
CO2 injection declined as the rock permeability decreased and the initial water
It is the responsibility of the Project Manager to schedule standing Project Board
meetings at the beginning of the project. Confirm the logistics of the next meeting,
namely date, time and conference room.
Create the meeting agenda. It is recommended that you use the Word 6.0 Agenda
Wizard (standard style) to create the agenda. This Wizard also creates the
skeleton meeting minutes. Confirm the agenda with the Project Sponsor.
Assemble any additional documentation that requires reading as preparation for the
Project Board meeting.
Member States and thus differences in investor protection. Some Member States apply a so-
called 'strict' liability regime, where the depositary has an immediate obligation to return the
lost asset to the UCITS, while others take the view that the loss of assets does not always
imply an unjustifiable failure to perform its duties on the part of the depositary that should
lead to liability for that depositary. As a consequence, the liability standard is not the same in
all Member States. ...
We agree with the Council’s proposed determination that the conduct, nature, size, scale, concentration,
and interconnectedness of MMFs’ activities and practices could create or increase the risk of significant
liquidity and credit problems spreading among bank holding companies, nonbank financial companies,
and the financial markets of the United States.
For this reason, we support the Council’s efforts to
address the structural vulnerabilities of MMFs by releasing the Proposal. ...
The complementary in shopping does not eliminate the possibility
to discriminate the shoppers and the captives when the two goods are complements.
Rather, it gives an additional ability to do such discrimination without lowering prices
too much as the shoppers have a stronger incentive to shop at one place. We were unable
to solve our model when these costs are present as this task requires nding the marginal
distributions as well as the distribution of the sum of the two prices.
In Eastern Europe, the incidence of poverty or
social exclusion is greatest, although the
difference between the EU-15 and EU-27
figure is relatively small. When comparing
2009 to 2010, the situation became worse in
most of the countries for which 2010 figures
are available. Within the EU, the largest
aggravation was observed in Lithuania and
