We present a system that learns to follow navigational natural language directions. Where traditional models learn from linguistic annotation or word distributions, our approach is grounded in the world, learning by apprenticeship from routes through a map paired with English descriptions. Lacking an explicit alignment between the text and the reference path makes it difﬁcult to determine what portions of the language describe which aspects of the route.

On April 6, 1998, the creation of Citigroup through the combination of
Citicorp and Travelers Inc. was announced to the general applause of
analysts and financial pundits. The “merger of equals” created the world’s
largest financial services firm—largest in market value, product range,
and geographic scope. Management claimed that strict attention to the
use of capital and rigorous control of costs (a Travelers specialty) could
be combined with Citicorp’s uniquely global footprint and retail banking
franchise to produce uncommonly good revenue and cost synergies.
Are you a programmer looking for a new challenge? Does the thought of building your very own iPhone app make your heart race and your pulse quicken? If so, then Beginning iPhone Development is just the book for you.
Assuming only a minimal working knowledge of Objective-C, and written in a friendly, easy-to-follow style, Beginning iPhone Development offers a complete soup-to-nuts course in iPhone and iPod Touch programming.
The purpose of this article is to give some context to the current discussions abounding in
language teaching classrooms around the world. I think it is essential to judge the most recently
marketed approaches in the light of what has gone before. And following Thomas Kuhn, who
wrote the seminal The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, my suggestion is that we integrate and
account for, rather than sweep away, past approaches.

Creating a team-building culture starts with individual, engaged employees. Engaged employees are happier at work, get more done, and routinely go above and beyond their job descriptions. They also encourage other employees to be more engaged and productive. Most importantly, these employees are proud to be a part of their companies and are likely to stay long-term. There is no one simple set of actions that will create increased engagement levels.
Health insurance makes a difference in whether and when people get necessary medical care, where they
get their care, and ultimately, how healthy people are. Uninsured adults are far more likely than the insured
to postpone or forgo health care altogether and less able to afford prescription drugs or follow through with
recommended treatments. Problems getting needed care are less common among children, who are
generally healthy, but disparities in access to care between uninsured and insured children are as great as
the adult differences.
An organized system of follow-up is important for all device patients and is best facilitated through the patient's membership in a formal pacemaker/ICD follow-up clinic. The first formal clinic follow-up visit is usually scheduled at approximately 3 months after implantation to allow for completion of the lead-tissue maturation process, which may affect sensing and capture thresholds. Reprogramming, to account for any threshold change since implant, and still provide a safety margin along with improved battery life, may be done at that time.

As luxury is a subjective and multidimensional construct, a definition of the luxury concept should follow an integrative
