During the past 25 years of digital information development, industry-wide discussion has progressed from resolving technology issues for managing GI to establishing policy for accessing it, especially in the public sector. Geographic Information: Value, Pricing, Production and Consumption brings the producer and consumer arguments together, providing a fresh perspective on the emotional and territorial issues of IPR (intellectual property rights) protection and liberation.
The Commissioner may confirm the fact that an audit report has issued in the
intervening period between an audit being conducted and the publication of the
annual report. Detailed queries regarding the findings are generally referred to the
Many organisations within the public sector are subject to Freedom of Information
legislation and a complete copy of an audit report may be sought by interested
parties using this mechanism.
In general, planning a special event or mass gathering should begin well in advance of the
event. One of the first steps in planning an event is to bring together those who are hosting
the event with those who are responsible for the public safety within the community. A
multidisciplinary planning team or committee should be composed of the promoter or
sponsor and any agency that holds a functional stake in the event (e.g., emergency
management, law enforcement, fire and rescue, public works/utilities, public health, etc.).
The following chapter is designed to be a ready reference to legal procedure,
terminology, and sequence of events in a civil case. All information is from
the perspective of the expert, so that he may be properly prepared at every
With this new edition of Effective Expert Witnessing, Dr. Matson has added
new information that is critical to expert witnessing in the late 1990s. In the
decade since the first edition of this book was published, expert witnessing has
been transformed by a series of court rulings generally concerned with the
reliability, relevancy, and admissibility of expert testimony. Expert witnessing
and trial strategy have not been the same since these decisions.
Another of ICI’s key missions is to promote public understand-
ing of funds and their investors. To that end, we stepped up
our outreach to the media and the public. Two key develop-
ments were the launch of ICI Viewpoints, a forum providing our
commentary on key issues as they emerge, and our increased
proﬁle in the broadcast media. Through these and other
means, we have achieved some success in informing coverage
and shaping opinions on key policy questions.

Fees have not received much explicit attention in the literature on SRI mutual funds.
However, several papers report average expense ratios for SRI and conventional funds (Statman,
2000; Bauer et al., 2005; Benson et al., 2006; Benson and Humphrey, 2008; Renneboog et al.,
2008a). In line with our results, none of these papers find significant differences in fees between
SRI and comparable conventional funds with the exception of Benson and Humphrey (2008),
who report that the median expense ratio is significantly higher for conventional funds. ...
The manager chose two people from her own department to work on the project. She also asked a
programmer from data processing to join her team. They met, discussed the project, and decided upon a
schedule and deadlines. Then the manager assigned her two employees specific responsibilities. One was
asked to design reports that would meet the treasurer’s criteria. The other was asked to define file
requirements and changes in input. The two were to meet periodically with the programmer to discuss

With all this in mind, this publication seeks to identify the relationship between freedom
of expression and Internet privacy, assessing where they support or compete with each
other in different circumstances. The publication maps out the issues in the current
regulatory landscape of Internet privacy from the viewpoint of freedom of expression. It
provides an overview of legal protection, self-regulatory guidelines, normative challenges,
and case studies relating to the topic.
s outlined in the section on advertising Facebook’s policy is that it does not allow the
serving of ads based on the use of sensitive data as defined under EU law. In practice, however, it
does seem that it is possible to use such information as contained in a profile. In this respect, it is
not inappropriate for FB-I to claim legitimate interests for the processing of profile, interest and
‘like’ information entered by a user if it were considered that consent would not be a sufficiently
robust basis for such processing. Regardless, there needs to be...
The exciting thing about social media is it off ers the
opportunity to engage in two-way conversations with
your customers. What better way to know how to
best serve your customers than to hear directly from
them? Social media has enabled new ways to initiate
conversations, respond to feedback and maintain an
active dialogue with customers.
Kodak has pages on Facebook as well as three of our own
blogs at www.kodak.com The blogs start conversations

positive impact on Kodak’s search engine rankings.
Freedom of press guarantees citizens and business the right to advertise however they
like, as long as it does not contain malicious content. If a country didn’t allow harmless ads like
the ones Miss Jozui speaks of, we’d be headed in the direction of turning into an overpowering
totalitarian-style of government. To agree with the entirety of the first amendment, one must be
able to respect the opinions of others even if they are the exact contrary to one’s own values.
This report explores key trends and challenges to the right of all individuals to seek,
receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds through the Internet. The Special
Rapporteur underscores the unique and transformative nature of the Internet not only to
enable individuals to exercise their right to freedom of opinion and expression, but also a
range of other human rights, and to promote the progress of society as a whole.
The development of administrative law is a prominent feature of the Australian
legal landscape. The importance of this subject is highlighted by the fact that it is
stipulated as a ‘core’ subject in the syllabi of many, if not most, law schools. One
needs only to peruse the cases reported in the main law reports to appreciate its
significance as a large area of legal practice.
In this volume of essays, the contributors examine a number of fundamental
topics of practical and doctrinal importance.
Replacing body side or quarter panels involves quite a bit more work, as most of the interior/boot trim will need
to be removed, as well as rear windows and possibly rear screen. Check the glasswork section if needed. Fuel
tanks or other mechanical items may need to be removed, depending on the particular vehicle. Sills and pillars
must be checked for internal sound deadening, wiring or pipes.
Before removing any of the old panel, make sure you have the new panel at hand. This way you can see exactly
how much new panel you get, and also if any...
Despite its importance, prior work on event
causality extraction in context in the NLP litera-
ture is relatively sparse. In (Girju, 2003), the au-
thor used noun-verb-noun lexico-syntactic patterns
to learn that “mosquitoes cause malaria”, where the
cause and effect mentions are nominals and not nec-
essarily event evoking words. In (Sun et al., 2007),
the authors focused on detecting causality between
search query pairs in temporal query logs.
Consider the implications of those final sentences: students who take courses
on media, who learn about the human rights to free speech and free press, and who
actively participate in student media organizations are more likely than their peers to
believe that people who hold unpopular opinions have a right to express them –and
that others have a right to hear them.
How much data regarding U.S. anti- and counterterrorism systems, countermeasures, and defenses is publicly available and how easily could it be found by individuals seeking to harm U.S. domestic interests? The authors developed a framework to guide assessments of the availability of such information for planning attacks on the
Schneider defines his terms rather differently from how they are defined here. He
defines ‘art’ as ‘man-made beauty’, but recognizes that what the Pokot themselves find
beautiful should not be assumed by the analyst but has to be discovered. To do this, he
analyses the meaning and use of the Pokot term pachigh, which his interpreter variously
translated as ‘beautiful’, ‘pretty’, ‘pleasant to look at’, and ‘unusual’. Pachigh is
distinguished from karam, which means ‘good’, and which Schneider glosses as
