Gordon V. Smith is chairman of AUS, Inc. and president of AUS Consultants. He has advised
clients in valuation matters for over 40 years. His assignments have included appraisals of
nearly every type of tangible and intangible property as well as consultations relative to royalty
rates, economic life, and litigation damages for intellectual property. Clients have been many of
the Fortune 500 and major international law firms, as well as research and educational institu-
tions, regulatory bodies, and the U.S. government.
The use of private property rights to regulate natural resources is a con-
troversial topic because it touches upon two critical issues: the allocation
of wealth in society and the conservation and management of limited
resources. This book explores the extension of private property rights
and market mechanisms to natural resources in international areas from
a legal perspective. It uses marine fisheries to illustrate the issues that can
arise in the design of regulatory regimes for natural resources. ...
The present paper follows in the path set by these authors, but extends their work in significant ways. We made these extensions to solve this problem in a way that can be directly applied in running systems in such application areas as information extraction or conversational interfaces. In particular, we have sought to produce an attachment decision procedure with far broader coverage than in earlier approaches. Most research to date has focussed on a subset of the attachment problem that only covers 25% of the problem instances in our training data, the socalled binary VNP subset.
Various combinations of stitches, tucks, and floats give also different width and length of knit. The goal of this study is to investigate the influence of different knitting structure elements and their position in the knit on deformation properties of plain weft-knitted fabrics.
The intent of these standards is not to instruct in the details of appraising, but rather the emphasis is on those particular aspects of valuation that pertain to assessing in Utah. Detailed instruction in appraisal theory and practice is provided through appropriate registration and certification course work.
Much of the language in these standards is common to other assessment publications as well as other disciplines; however, its use here is restricted to the definitions provided in the “General Information Section”.
Soil fertility describes soil nutrient status and the factors controlling the supply of
nutrients to plants. Continued efforts to improve soil fertility are required to support
the world's growing demand for food, fiber, and renewable fuels. Important ecological
services provided by soils, such as biodiversity, buffering capacity, and nutrient
recycling benefit from the amendments applied to sustain soil fertility. Those
amendments need to be applied in a manner that is both economical and practical for
the producer to achieve agronomic objectives that are environmentally sound.
The new edition of Principles of Electrochemistry has been considerably
extended by a number of new sections, particularly dealing with 'electrochemical
material science' (ion and electron conducting polymers, chemically
modified electrodes), photoelectrochemistry, stochastic processes, new aspects
of ion transfer across biological membranes, biosensors, etc. In view of
this extension of the book we asked Dr Ladislav Kavan (the author of the
section on non-electrochemical methods in the first edition) to contribute as
a co-author discussing many of these topics.
When we heard about JavaServer Faces (JSF) at the 2002 JavaOne conference,
we were very excited. Both of us had extensive experience with client-side Java
programming—David in Graphic Java™, and Cay in Core Java™, both published
by Sun Microsystems Press—and we found web programming with servlets
and JavaServer Pages (JSP) to be rather unintuitive and tedious. JSF promised
to put a friendly face in front of a web application, allowing programmers to
think about text fields and menus instead of dealing with page flips and
What makes work with rational numbers and integers comfortable are the essential properties they have, especially the unique factorization property (the Main Theorem of Arithmetic). However, the might of the arithmetic in Q is bounded. Thus, some polynomials, although they have zeros, cannot be factorized into polynomials with rational coefﬁcients.
We all know the drill: post as many ads in a single day as possible and hope to generate a few leads.
There is a similar situation within email marketing called “spray and pray.” This term is certainly an
adequate representation of how Craigslist is currently being used. Craigslist has become crowded with
multiple postings for the same property. Inevitably, these duplicate listings overwhelm and frustrate
Craigslist users and reduce opportunities for your property.
As a successful Craigslist marketer, I have established unique and effective strategies for approaching
Craigslist. Put simply, I follow the rules of Craigslist and utilize basic SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
marketing techniques. While every property management company is different, most are in the process
of establishing Craigslist policies and guidelines. Some are successful; most are not. In this guide I will
share with you my successful techniques.
First, let us get to know the users of Craigslist.
Obwona (2000) estimated a trans log production function to determine technical
efficiency differentials between small- and medium-scale tobacco farmers in Uganda
using a stochastic frontier approach. The estimated efficiencies were explained by
socioeconomic and demographic factors. The results showed that, credit accessibility

Robots are used extensively in industrial engineering. They allow businesses to save money on labor, perform tasks that are either too dangerous or too precise for humans to perform them economically, and to ensure better quality. Many companies employ assembly lines of robots,especially in Automotive Industries and some factories are so robotized that they can run by themselves. Outside the factory, robots have been employed in bomb disposal, space exploration, and many other fields. Robots are also sold for various residential applications, from recreation to domestic applications....
One reason why the study of thermodynamics is so valuable to
students of chemistry and chemical engineering is that it is a theory
which can be developed in its entirety, without gaps in the argument,
on the basis of only a moderate knowledge of mathematics. It is
therefore a self-contained logical structure, and much benefit--and
incidentally much pleasure-may be obtained from its study. Another
reason is that it is one of the few branches of physics or chemistry
which is largely independent of any assumptions concerning the
nature of the fundamental particles.

Our main contribution is to study a variable, international soccer results, that has particu-
larly attractive properties as a measure of mood. While extensive psychological evidence, which
we review below, shows that sports in general have a signiﬁcant eﬀect on mood, TV viewing
ﬁgures, media coverage, and merchandise sales suggest that soccer in particular is of “national
interest” in many of the countries we study.
1 It is hard to imagine other regular events that
produce such substantial and correlated mood swings in a large proportion of a country’s pop-
The growth of the Internet has put pressure on traditional intellectual property protections such as copyright
and patent. Some forms of information, when made accessible on the Internet, are easily copied. Because the costs
of copying are low and because copying is often anonymous, publishers have often responded with more aggressive
enforcement of existing intellectual property rights and with calls for extensions of those rights to cover additional
content, new media and new forms of access.
