We present an approach for detecting salient (important) dates in texts in order to automatically build event timelines from a search query (e.g. the name of an event or person, etc.). This work was carried out on a corpus of newswire texts in English provided by the Agence France Presse (AFP). In order to extract salient dates that warrant inclusion in an event timeline, we ﬁrst recognize and normalize temporal expressions in texts and then use a machine-learning approach to extract salient dates that relate to a particular topic....
Molecular cloning has identified eight metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR)
subtypes, each with distinct patterns of expression. However, the characteristic roles of
these different mGluRs in physiological processes are not well understood.
Identification of subtype-specific compounds may potentially act as therapeutic agents
for the treatment of a wide range of conditions (including progressive brain disease,
epilepsy and cerebral ischemia) all of which are associated with abnormal mGLuR

As the next, key step in fulfilling its mission, during its third phase the Apheis programme wanted to go
beyond just ensuring that its findings were scientifically valid and up-to-date.
Through this next step, Apheis also wanted to make sure its findings were relevant to the needs of its
chosen groups of users, or audiences; that these audiences could easily use its findings; and that, to the
extent possible, these audiences would actually use the work of the many individuals who give so much
of their time and energy to the Apheis programme.

Second, our findings contribute to an emerging discussion in the
real estate literature on the choice of portfolio specialization. To date, existing work has focused
primarily on geographic diversification (see e.g. Hartzell, Sun and Titman (2010)). Our findings

our work provides additional empirical support for the importance of financial intermediation in the
gathering of specialized knowledge and efficiencies.
