Qatar has recently positioned itself to be a leader in education. Central to the country’s efforts is the implementation of reforms to its K-12 education system. Central to the reform initiatives was the development of internationally benchmarked curriculum standards in four subjects: Arabic, English as a foreign language,
Oil and gas are the most important non-renewable sources of energy. Exploring, producing and managing these resources in compliance with HSE standards are challenging tasks. New technologies, workflows and procedures have to be implemented.This book deals with some of these themes and describes some of the advanced technologies related to the oil and gas industry from HSE to field management issues. Some new technologies for geo-modeling, transient well testing and digital rock physics are also introduced. There are many more technical topics to be addressed in future books.

In the past few decades, the Finite Element Method (FEM) has been developed into a key indispensable technology in the modeling and simulation of various engineering systems. The present book reports on the state of the art research and development findings on this very broad matter through original and innovative research studies exhibiting various investigation directions of FEM in electrical, civil, materials and biomedical engineering.
For most rural people in Cambodia, rice fi elds and associated habitats are important sources
of fi sh and other aquatic animals (OAAs), which provide both nutrition and income. A lack of
quantitative information contributes to a general neglect of rice fi eld fi sheries in development
planning, which usually favours intensifi cation of rice production that may negatively impact
the fi shery.
This book approaches two contemporary topics in the field of software engineer-
ing that have had more than a significant impact in the way the modern software is
being developed. Agile movement raised the role of experience and people in the
centre stage having a profound impact on large and small software organizations
alike. Research and practice have shown that agile is penetrating practically in
all industrial domains including the globally operating, hardware-bound software

A key task for any interdisciplinary field such as law and development is to determine what
each discipline aims to gain fromits interaction with the other. Law and development certainly
seeks to ensure that development considerations are taken into account by lawyers, and that
legal considerations are taken into account by those who study development.
Through 25 chapters authored by some of the leading researchers in the field, Human Resources Development Review 2008 provides an extensive overview of the contextual factors driving human resources development in South Africa. A key theme throughout the volume is the importance of a multi-faceted skills development strategy operating at three levels.
Since the advent of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, systems with amagnetic field
intensity of 1.5 tesla (T) have been deemed the gold standard for different clinical applications
in all body areas. Ongoing advances in hardware and software have made
theseMRsystems increasingly compact, powerful and versatile, leading to the development
of higher magnetic field strength MRsystems (3.0 T) for use in clinical practice
and for research purposes. As usually occurs with a new technology, 3.0 T MR
imaging units will probably follow the same development trends in the years to

Physical Phenomena at High Magnetic Fields-IV (PPHMF-IV) was the fourth
conference sponsored by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL).
The previous conferences were held in May, 1991, 1995, and 1998. These meetings
brought together experts in scientific research areas where high magnetic fields
could make an important impact.
PPHMF-III devoted substantial time to reviewing the state of many fields in
regard to the role of high magnetic fields, such as semiconductors, heavy fermions,
superconductivity, and molecular conductors.
With rapid advancements in computing power, computer modeling and simulations
have become an important complement to experimentations in many areas of research
as well as industrial applications. The Discrete Event Simulation (DES) method has
received widespread attention and acceptance by both researchers and practitioners in
recent years. The range of application of DES spans across many different disciplines
and research fields.
Lexicon definition is one of the main bottlenecks in the development of new applications in the field of Information Extraction from text. Generic resources (e.g., lexical databases) are promising for reducing the cost of specific lexica definition, but they introduce lexical ambiguity. This paper proposes a methodology for building application-specific lexica by using WordNet. Lexical ambiguity is kept under control by marking synsets in WordNet with field labels taken from the Dewey Decimal Classification. tion requirement.
Leading experts review the research on resilience and represent the diverse perspectives and opinions found among both scientists and practitioners in the field. Although the chapters are written to the standards expected by researchers, they are equally useful for program developers and others in applied fields seeking science-based information on the topic. This book is a unique resource in keeping with the growing interest in resilience both in research and interventions.
Developing leaders is critical for the Army; given the amount of time officers spend in units, that experience should be important to their development. Yet few studies indicate whether Army units even have leader development programs, and, if they do, what the programs consist of and how well they are executed. To gain ...
Sentence boundary detection in speech is important for enriching speech recognition output, making it easier for humans to read and downstream modules to process. In previous work, we have developed hidden Markov model (HMM) and maximum entropy (Maxent) classiﬁers that integrate textual and prosodic knowledge sources for detecting sentence boundaries.
