.Treating Personality Disorder
This book considers personality disorders and how they are treated within the institutional context of prisons and hospitals and oﬀers practical guidance on assessment, formulation and integrated treatment planning.
In this paper, we formulate extractive summarization as a risk minimization problem and propose a unified probabilistic framework that naturally combines supervised and unsupervised summarization models to inherit their individual merits as well as to overcome their inherent limitations. In addition, the introduction of various loss functions also provides the summarization framework with a flexible but systematic way to render the redundancy and coherence relationships among sentences and between sentences and the whole document, respectively. ...
Grand strategy matrix is a last matrix of matching strategy formulation framework. It same as important
as BCG, IE and other matrices. This chapter enables you to understand the preparation of GS matrix.
In order to accommodate this kind of diversity, it
is important that project cycle management systems
support the application of standard working
modalities/rules in a flexible manner.
Relationship between projects, programmes and
policies: A well-formulated project should derive
from an appropriate balance between the EC’s
development policy priorities and the partner’s
Within the scope of these policy priorities, the
executive arms of government or non-governmental
agencies formulate the broad areas of work required
to implement policy decisions.
Fortunately, Social Security continues to provide
families with a basic level of income security. It prevents
millions of Americans from slipping into poverty when
their working years are over because, like a pension, Social
Security provides Americans with an income stream that
they cannot outlive. However, Social Security was never
meant to be people’s sole source of retirement income.
Two models were used to apportion human cases to sources on the basis of sequence
types: the modified Hald model and the Island model (12,15). The modified Hald model
combines the prevalence of each C. jejuni sequence type among the sources with the observed
number of human isolates of that type by using a Bayesian framework (15). This model includes
source-specific and type-specific factors, and accounts for variation in the estimated prevalence.
This book introduces corporate financial management, based on the basic capital budgeting framework and the time value of money. It focuses on theoretical formulations and correct application of financial techniques that will help improve managerial and financial decisions. Based on fundamental principles of accounting and finance like time value of money and after-tax cash flows, it introduces readers to real-world constraints and complexities in the two fields.
The Logical Framework Approach is an analytical and
management tool which is now used (in one form or
another) by most multi-lateral and bi-lateral aid
agencies, international NGOs and by many partner
governments. Indeed, the EC generally requires the
development of a Logframe Matrix as part of its
project formulation procedures for external
assistance. This Guideline therefore gives emphasis to
the application of the Logical Framework Approach at
the various stages of the project management cycle.
Publication of this book is a milestone for the Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative
Council. It demonstrates the Council's unique capacity to bring together water and
sanitation professionals from industrialised and developing countries to formulate
practical guidance on a key issue of the day.
Industrialised countries have extensive experience of the problems caused by water
pollution and the strategies and technologies available to control it.
Bayesian Estimation Theory: Basic Definitions Bayesian Estimation The Estimate–Maximise Method Cramer–Rao Bound on the Minimum Estimator Variance Design of Mixture Gaussian Models Bayesian Classification Modeling the Space of a Random Process Summary
ayesian estimation is a framework for the formulation of statistical inference problems. In the prediction or estimation of a random process from a related observation signal, the Bayesian philosophy is based on combining the evidence contained in the signal with prior knowledge of the probability distribution of the process.
The national Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants of Romania
establishes rules of conduct for professional accountants and formulates basic
principles to be followed by professional accountants to achieve common goals.
Romania accountants and entities operating in different sectors of national economy as
freelancers or as employees; basic purpose of the Code, but must always be respected.
National Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants of Romania is divided
into three parts.
This chapter is devoted to the problem of detecting additive abrupt changes
in linear state space models . Sensor and actuator faults as a sudden offset
or drift can all be modeled as additive changes . In addition. disturbances are
traditionally modeled as additive state changes . The likelihood ratio formulation
provides a general framework for detecting such changes. and to isolate
the fault/disturbance .
This chapter addresses the most general problem formulation of detection in
linear systems. Basically, all problem formulations that have been discussed
so far are included in the framework considered. The main purpose is to
survey multiple model algorithms, and a secondary purpose is to overview
and compare the state of the art in different application areas for reducing
complexity, where similar algorithms have been developed independently.
It is with great pleasure that I acknowledge and thank my mentors, Derek
Attridge, Ronald Levao, Bridget Gellert Lyons, Jacqueline T. Miller, and
Michael McKeon, who have supported this project from its beginning to
the present day. Although I did not realize it at the time, this book also
owes a substantial debt to my participation in Constance Jordan’s Folger
Institute Seminar (Fall, 1994), which helped me to formulate an
intellectual framework from which to consider intersections between
ﬁctional works and legal discourse\
Having identified and classified relevant water pollution problems, and having assigned
priority to them, the next step is to identify appropriate interventions to cope with the
problems. For every problem identified, therefore, an assessment should be made of the
most appropriate means for intervention. Furthermore, an indication should be given of
the relevant administrative level(s) to be involved. The proposed interventions may vary
significantly in detail and scope.
This paper will discuss how to determine word stress from spelling. Stress assignment is a well-established weak point for many speech synthesizers because stress dependencies cannot be determined locally. It is impossible to determine the stress of a word by looking through a five or six character window, as many speech synthesizers do. Wellknown examples such as degrade / dbgradl,tion and tMegraph / telegraph5 demonstrate that stress dependencies can span over two and three syllables. This paper will pre~nt a principled framework for dealing with these long distance dependencies.
One of the most significant contributions of the MEASURE DHS program is the creation of an
internationally comparable body of data on the demographic and health characteristics of populations in
developing countries. The DHS Comparative Reports series examines these data across countries in a
comparative framework. The DHS Analytical Studies series focuses on specific topics. The principal
objectives of both series are to provide information for policy formulation at the international level and to
examine individual country results in an international context.
In many countries, no comprehensive and coherent policy and legislation exists for water
pollution control or for environmental protection (see Case Study XIII, Yemen). This does
not prevent water pollution control from taking place before such policies have been
formulated and adopted, but the most efficient and effective outcome of water pollution
control is obtained within a framework of defined policies, plans and co-ordinating
The purpose of the Furniture Design Critic program is to develop a model of cri-
tiquing that can lead to better teaching and learning of design. However, we are
not — in the ﬁrst place — concerned with answering the question: “What is ped-
agogically the best method of critiquing?” Nor are we concerned with constructing
a model to predict which critiquing methods will be the most eﬀective for which
students under which conditions.
Lean Thinking Brings Powerful Financial Incentives to Resource Conservation and Pollution
Prevention Improvement. Pollution prevention adherents often advocate a “pollution prevention
pays” theme to promote more sustainable production behavior. As well, pollution prevention
guidance encourages facilities to examine the total costs of polluting behavior to ensure investment
decisions are fairly and completely evaluated. This “Total Cost Assessment” approach, according
to advocates, can produce a strong business case (e.g.
