There is a hidden revolution going on: geography is moving from niche to the mainstream. GIS for Web Developers introduces Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in simple terms and demonstrates hands-on uses. With this book, you'll explore popular websites like maps.google.com, see the technologies they use, and learn how to create your own. Written with the usual Pragmatic Bookshelf humor and real-world experience, GIS for Web Developers makes geographic programming concepts accessible to the common developer...
A computer program, or just a program, is a sequence of instructions, written to perform a specified task with a computer. A computer requires programs to function, typically executing the program's instructions in a central processor. The program has an executable form that the computer can use directly to execute the instructions. The same program in its human-readable source code form, from which executable programs are derived (e.g., compiled), enables a programmer to study and develop its algorithms.

What must computers on a network have in common in order to directly communicate with each other? A network that connects workstations, terminals, and other devices a geographically limitted area. A network that connects workstations, terminals, and other devices a large metropolitan area. A network that serves users across a geographically large area and often uses transmission devices provided by a common carrier.
Every year, tens of thousands of young engineers and university graduates enter the
fascinating professional field of radio frequency (RF) design. Most of them have a
reasonable understanding of applied mathematics and physics, circuit theory, electromagnetism,
and electronics as well as computers and programming.
Subsequently, the 1996 Nepal Family Health Survey, the 2001 Nepal Demographic and Health
Survey and the 2006 Nepal Demographic and Health surveys were conducted. This trend report
discusses key findings from these three DHS surveys in Nepal. All three Nepal DHS surveys sampled
nationally representative populations, were conducted by the same organization (New ERA Ltd.), and
managed by the same core group of survey personnel.
We’re sure you’re champing at the bit to start building web pages, but we’d like to set the stage first and
cover some general information about the Internet and World Wide Web, as well as some background on
HTML and CSS. This chapter isn’t a comprehensive overview by any means, but it will get you up to speed
on some of the terminology and concepts you’ll need to be familiar with throughout the rest of this book. If
you’re already pretty web-savvy, and if you’ve used and worked with websites for some time, feel free to
skip ahead to Chapter 2 and start getting your...
This Manual is divided into four chapters. Chapter 1 contains background information on the
reasons for regulating emissions from wood furniture manufacturing including a brief regulatory
perspective, an overview of the health effects of the five solvents used in the largest quantities,
sources of emissions from a typical wood furniture manufacturing facility, and a summary of the
new federal wood furniture regulations. Chapter 2 defines pollution prevention (P2) and discusses
the elements of a successful P2 program.
Students should note that Congress generally prohibits the use of appropriated funds
to employ non-citizens within the United States. That restriction is discussed on the USAJobs
Web site. Students who are not U.S. citizens are eligible for the student observer program.
However, they should recognize that they are generally not eligible to be hired as employees
We have a limited number of slots and cannot hire all of the students who would be
successful interns. Students are welcome to decline our offers.
The four case-studies were selected from diverse
geographic regions with contrasting political
and sectoral structures. All are currently engaged
in health-sector reform, and represent differing
stages of progress towards a SWAp. The UNFPA
and WHO country offices in each of the countries
selected had participated in the project’s training
course, and two of the four countries had received
These are only some of the outcomes that will be achieved through the GHI. For a complete list of GHI targets and
outcomes, including linkages to current strategies, see Annex A.
Through GHI, the U.S. seeks to align goals and targets for our investments with partner country needs, plans and pri-
orities. These goals and targets build upon our existing health programs as we work with countries to achieve signifi-
cant and sustainable gains in health.
This report is in response to a request from the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill
Trustee Council to review the Gulf of Alaska Ecosystem Monitoring and
Research Program (GEM). To ensure that the GEM program is based on a
science plan that is robust, far-reaching, and scientifically sound, the
Trustee Council asked the National Academies to serve as an independent
advisor. The Academies appointed a special committee and charged
it to review the scope and content of the program as it evolved.
This booklet is designed to introduce judges
and judicial administrators in other countries
to the United States federal judicial system, its
organization and administration, and its relationship
to the legislative and executive branches of the
government. It was developed by the Office
of Judges Programs of the Administrative Office
of the United States Courts at the request of the
Judicial Conference Committee on International
In the summer of 2009, Elon renovated the second floor of Powell Building to become
the home of the Master of Arts in Interactive Media program. The Powell Interactive
Media Suite houses a state-of-the-art computer laboratory/production facility and
classroom. It includes five editing suites, a graduate study center, and lounge. The
suite also houses DSLR cameras, which shoot still photos and high definition video.
The following points support our choice
of methods. First, the specification of the stochastic process is complex due to the variety of
and requires a considerable number of parameters, which
increases the potential impact of estimation errors. Second, the estimation by means of finite
differences requires equally spaced strike prices. For our sample, this is a considerable
difficulty in the implementation, as section 2.2 demonstrates. Third, regarding the
performance of the tree approach, there is little evidence of superior results
Active renewal policies that required families to submit
documentation to verify their continued eligibility
were associated with substantial disenrollment.
Requiring active eligibility redetermination every 6
months rather than every 12 months resulted in even
higher levels of disenrollment over time. Up to one-
quarter of children who disenrolled at renewal
returned to SCHIP within 3 months (18 percent to
The Integrated Project “standard and Interoperable satellite solution to deploy health care
services over WideAREa” (HEALTHWARE), which is co-financed by the European
Commission and coordinated by Thales Alenia Space (France) validates and promotes the
usage of a light and cost effective satellite technology (DVB_RCS-combining the DVB-S
norm for TV broadcast with an efficient return link) in geographic areas lacking sufficient
terrestrial telecommunication capacities for running interactive applications based on
videoconferencing, like collaborative staff meeting, teleexp...
A similar effort may well be in order
targeting the gay and bisexual men who are
most at risk, particularly those who are living
with HIV. Further research is needed to
determine the prevalence and incidence of
ASIL in the general population of gay and
bisexual men outside of major urban centers.
Programs are needed to train colposcopists
in the skills of identifying and biopsying
ASIL; training of colorectal surgeons is
needed to optimize identification and treat-
ment of ASIL.
Women have long been at the heart of Africa’s informal, member-owned, rotating savings cooperatives – among
the world’s oldest and most prevalent savings mechanisms. These cooperative associations form the foundation for
CARE’s pioneering approach to microfinance. They are sustainable, self-funded credit sources at the village level,
built by members through their own savings.
CARE launched our first microfinance program in Niger in 1991 with a participatory, community-based approach.
