The Committee believes that a successful implementation of the revised Framework will provide banks and supervisors with critical experience necessary to address such challenges. The Committee understands that the IRB approach represents a point on the continuum between purely regulatory measures of credit risk and an approach that builds more fully on internal credit risk models. In principle, further movements along that continuum are foreseeable, subject to an ability to address adequately concerns about reliability, comparability, validation, and competitive equity.......
The current volume is the eighth in a new and dynamic series on
“global institutions.” The series strives (and, based on the initial
volumes we believe, succeeds) to provide readers with definitive guides
to the most visible aspects of what we know as “global governance”.
Remarkable as it may seem, there exist relatively few books that offer
in-depth treatments of prominent global bodies and processes, much
less an entire series of concise and complementary volumes.

Another kind of reductionism occurs with attempts to reduce percep-
tion to brain processes or neural events (Ramachandran & Hirstein 1999).
Evidently, the brain is necessary for perceptual processing. Yet, according
to TSC, perceptual processes are constructed in real time in the interaction
between agent and environment. As Harth (2004) remarks in discussing
the relation between neurophysiology and art, a theory of artistic expression
must take into account not only the human brain, but also the world at
Another cultural difference frequently remarked on by Volunteers is amount of time spent in staff
meetings. A former Volunteer in Ghana who later returned to Africa as a Peace Corps staff
member, reminisced about his teaching days, saying:
When I was in Ghana, I would rather have hat my tongue nailed to a tree than sit through
any more staff meetings. Though I've come to realize that these meetings aren't inefficient
or indecisive. What seemed to me repetitious and pointless was a finely tuned
communication machine in action...
This book is a product of a collaborative project funded by the
Australian Research Council on the relationship between inter-
national law and the Australian legal system. The change in the
Australian public’s attention to international law during the life of
the project, prompted by events such as the Iraq war, international
criticism of Australia’s refugee policy, the signing of a free trade
agreement with the United States and the continuing ‘war against
terror’, has been remarkable.
The most obvious reason why school mathematics education should matter
to university professors is that a continuing inﬂux of mathematically in-
competent students would decimate the university mathematics curriculum.
One can look no further than the United Kingdom to have one’s worst fears
conﬁrmed. If the report [TM] released by the Council of the London Math-
ematical Society in October, 1995, is to be trusted, then the UK is some ﬁve
years ahead of us in a mathematics education reform remarkably similar to
our own in its rhetoric. ...
The ‘electronic book’ is a feature of this early 21st Century. I have been in academic life for several decades, and have I hope responded with flexibility to changes over that time. I have been using a word processor on a daily basis for twenty years and am deeply conscious of the advantages over even the most advanced typewriters. The first time I gave a presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint was in India about six years ago. I have with enthusiasm used PowerPoint for every invited talk or conference contribution I have given since. Such talks and contributions have been in...
In view of the fact that the present paper will doubtless reach many readers who may not, in consequence of
the limited edition, have seen the preliminary volume on mortuary customs, it seems expedient to reproduce
in great part the prefatory remarks which served as an introduction to that work; for the reasons then urged,
for the immediate study of this subject, still exist, and as time flies on become more and more important.
The primitive manners and customs of the North American Indians are rapidly passing away under influences
of civilization and other disturbing elements.
TOWARDS ‘ALL IP’ AND SOME CONCLUDING REMARKS
This concluding chapter provides ﬁrst an introduction to some of the planned release 5 enhancements to UMTS and the GPRS/EDGE RAN (GERAN). These can be seen as the ﬁrst step towards ‘all IP’. The challenges when having to deliver real-time IP services over an air interface, in particular voice over IP services, are summarised and possible solutions to achieve spectrum efﬁciencies similar to those of optimised cellular voice services are outlined.

The literature on aesthetic labour provides some definitions. Martin describes aesthetic
labour as ‘the requirement to have the management-determined mix of appearance, age, weight,
class, and accent characteristics.’(2001, 106). He cites the work from Strathclyde University with
‘a hotel seeking to project a total image concept, with the hotel building representing the
hardware and the staff the software’ (2001, 106). He remarks further that staff are expected to
mould themselves into the required characteristics.
Harrison's Internal Medicine Chapter 41. Weight Loss
Weight Loss: Introduction
Significant unintentional weight loss in a previously healthy individual is often a harbinger of underlying systemic disease. During the routine medical examination, changes in weight should always be assessed; loss of 5% of body weight over 6–12 months should prompt further evaluation.
Physiology of Weight Regulation
The normal individual maintains body weight at a remarkably stable "set point," given the wide variation in daily caloric intake and level of activity.
Automatically acquired lexicons with subcategorization information have already proved accurate and useful enough for some purposes but their accuracy still shows room for improvement. By means of diathesis alternation, this paper proposes a new filtering method, which improved the performance of Korhonen’s acquisition system remarkably, with the precision increased to 91.18% and recall unchanged, making the acquired lexicon much more practical for further manual proofreading and other NLP uses. ...
The two volumes here published contain but a small selection from the numerous writings of Acton on a
variety of topics, which are to be found scattered through many periodicals of the last half-century. The result
here displayed is therefore not complete. A further selection of nearly equal quantity might be made, and still
much that is valuable in Acton's work would remain buried. Here, for instance, we have extracted nothing
from the Chronicle; and Acton's gifts as a leader-writer remain without illustration. Yet they were remarkable.
