Renewable natural resources
in the forefront to save the environment and we must do our best to find
applications suitable for them.
The production process is shown by the method of casting, rolling process
including monitoring throughout the process. Innovative testing procedures described in
electrochemistry, ultrasonic pulse velocity, fracture toughness in the macro-micro
mechanical behavior and more. The coordination between the components, laminas and
building parts are checked by different principles....
"Advanced Image Acquisition, Processing Techniques and Applications" is the first book of a series that provides image processing principles and practical software implementation on a broad range of applications. The book integrates material from leading researchers on Applied Digital Image Acquisition and Processing. An important feature of the book is its emphasis on software tools and scientific computing in order to enhance results and arrive at problem solution.
The second result underlines the interest of a two-factor model rather than
a one factor model to represent the stochastic dynamics of interest rates. For
example, Balduzzi, Das and Foresi (1998) show the presence of a stochastic
central tendency in the dynamics of the short and long term interest rates
which explains that the level of the short rate is not the only relevant variable
to describe its conditional mean.
The legislation already in place and now being considered adds up to a fundamental reshaping
of the EU's financial system. Agreement on banking supervision will put the European
financial system on far more secure foundations and act as a springboard for confidence. 2013
will see the implementation of many of the detailed rules of this package.
Due to the growing importance of forest goods and services an increasing amount of information is
being collected on the ecological and also on the socio-economic value of goods and services
provided by forests. However, much of this information is collected and presented at incompatible
scales or it has been classified differently. In order to make comparative ecological or economic
analysis possible, standardized frameworks for assessing the importance of forest goods and services
The following sections provide an overview of the technical and qualitative
characteristics of a wide range of alternative fuels that can replace coal in cement kilns.
These fuels include agricultural and non-agricultural biomass, chemical and hazardous
wastes, petroleum-based wastes, and miscellaneous waste fuels. Each of these
alternatives are described in detail, including a discussion of average substitution rates,
energy and water content of the fuels, carbon dioxide emissions factors, and change in
carbon emissions per ton1
of coal replacement.
In a similar way, environmental considerations are frequently viewed as barriers to profitability. They are viewed as necessary evils, costs to be minimized, or regulations with which to comply. The environment is rarely considered central to business strategy unless there is some regulation that constrains business goals, a mess to clean up, or a public issue which pits executives against environmentalists. Historically, business people neither have been encouraged nor discouraged to get involved with environmental concerns.
Sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) are investment funds owned and managed by
national governments. Such funds currently manage between $1.9 and $2.9 trillion
and are expected to grow to over $12 trillion by 2015. This is due to the rapid growth
of commodity prices and large trade surpluses in several emerging market economies.
During the second half of 2007, interest in SWFs increased as Asian and Middle
Eastern SWFs, fueled by surging foreign exchange reserves, invested large sums of
capital in U.S. and other Western companies.
Since the ﬁnancial crisis, there has been renewed interest in documenting the balance-
sheet positions of ﬁnancial institutions. We share the important goal of this literature:
to come up with data on positions that will inform the theoretical modeling of these insti-
tutions, as called for by Franklin Allen in his 2001 AFA presidential address. Adrian and
Shin (2011) investigate the behavior of Value-at-Risk measures reported by investment
In what emerged as a cult film for youngsters, KKHH (1998), Rahul (Shahrukh Khan) is a flirtatious young guy
who though does not mind flirting with girls, would however want to take only a homely girl in front of his
mother, for marriage. While it is completely alright for him to flirt, he has very clear ideas about whom he wants
to marry and that the girl should be simple. His best friend Anjali (Kajol) who is a tomboy falls for him and
makes every effort to woo him by turning herself to be girlish. Under the veils of...
Over the last few years, the Internet has had a profound effect on the private and professional
lives of European citizens, offering them an increasing number and range of opportunities for
accessing information, gaining and exchanging knowledge and realising personal learning
The core indicators for Internet take up show that most Europeans are using the Internet.
According to Eurostat 2009 data, 65% of EU27 households have Internet access at home,
ranging from 30% in Bulgaria to 90% in the Netherlands.
Although phosphate rock and potash are used as raw
materials for a wide range of applications, the most
important use by far is the manufacture of mineral
The primary source of these minerals is geological ore
deposits formed through past sedimentary or igneous
activities. In the case of potash, concentrated brines
are also a significant source.
This chapter provides a brief overview of the major
activities involved in the mining, handling and benefi-
ciation of phosphate rock and potash ore....
Furthermore, when lenders institute non-interest charges such as fees to compensate for
interest rate ceilings, they effectively raise the cost of credit for all successful borrowers.
Therefore, while a ceiling may reduce the explicit price of credit (interest rate), it may not
result in lower overall costs of borrowing even for those able to obtain loans. Additionally,
non-interest charges make it more complicated for customers to comprehend the total cost
of borrowing and more difficult to make well-informed credit decisions.
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.
In addition to emerging chemical contaminants, there is also
the threat of emerging pathogens – those that are appearing
in human populations for the first time, or have occurred
before but are increasing in incidence or are expanding into
areas where they have not been reported (WHO 2003a).
Not only do water-related diseases remain a leading cause
of global morbidity and mortality, but several studies have
confirmed that the variety of disease is expanding and
the incidence of many water-related microbial diseases is
increasing (WHO 2003a).
The connection between receptivity and intensely motivated activity is
further established when we appreciate that an arcane definition of “pas-
sion,” from the Latin “pati,” is suffering. Both passion and suffering
mean to experience intensely while being acted upon by the world. It is
to let something happen to oneself and to bear the weight of its conse-
quences. Far from being destructive, passion and suffering are associated
with heightened vitality and renewed life. ...
Invasive Meningococcal Disease results from bacterial infection with Neisseria meningitidis,
a gram-negative aerobic organism that is usually a commensal in humans; 5-25% of adults
are asymptomatic carriers.
Meningococci that cause invasive disease develop a capsule that
protects the organism from host defence mechanisms.
To base an analysis of professionalization in terms of the ‘truth’ or ‘falsehood’ of
claims to independence, etc. risks the adoption of an uncritical stance towards the role of
professional ideology which is reduced, in this formulation, to a receptacle of ‘false
consciousness’ (Larrain, 1979; Thompson, 1984). By suspending the category of truth we can
concentrate on the ‘truth-effects’ of ideology expressed through discourse (Foucault, 1981).
This report is Part I of the larger project on Internet intermediaries. It develops a common definition and understanding of what Internet intermediaries are, of their economic function and economic models, of recent market developments, and discusses the economic and social uses that these actors satisfy. The overall goal of the horizontal report of the Committee for Information, Computer and Communications Policy (ICCP) is to obtain a comprehensive view of Internet intermediaries, their economic and social function, development and prospects, benefits and costs, and responsibilities.
