organizational and investment issues related to the national military space effort, the overall weight of effort that should be directed to space mission support, and the appropriate trade-offs between space and other mission needs in all mediums across service lines. Research in support of the study was completed in November 2002.
Comprehending action preconditions and effects is an essential step in modeling the dynamics of the world. In this paper, we express the semantics of precondition relations extracted from text in terms of planning operations. The challenge of modeling this connection is to ground language at the level of relations. This type of grounding enables us to create high-level plans based on language abstractions.
The soils of the South American llanos and cerrado grasslands are predominantly old soils from which most of the plant nutrients have been lost. In many places there are layers of laterite (see the sidebar), which give them a red or yellow color. African savanna soils are much younger and more fertile. These shade into arid soils in the north and into wetter soils on high ground. On the southern side there are poor, exhausted, lateritic soils typical of tropical rain forest.

In the aftermath of World War II, the United States enjoyed an easy
preeminence in the world economy. Neither the US education system, nor
the US tax system, nor American savings habits were criticized on
grounds of international competitiveness. During the 1980s, however,
Americans took notice of their faults as Japan and the European Union
both seemed destined to challenge US preeminence. For different reasons
neither Japan nor the European Union prospered during the 1990s but the
US economy thrived on a technology boom.
Wind energy developments may impair the setting ofhistoric sites and can compromise the visual amenity ofthe wider landscape,detracting from historic character,sense of place,tranquillity and remoteness.In certainconditions,indirect impacts can also include noise andshadow flicker from turbines.Turbines towers are now typically in excess of 60 metres in height and may have a zone of visualinfluence more than ten kilometres in radius.
The chemical properties of organics of health concern – hydrophobic and not water soluble -
results in a low bioavailability to plants. Plant growth is dependent on the water solubility of
nutrients and minerals and water is the transporting vector. Organics with a low water
solubility will therefore not be taken up by plants. The presence of organic environmental
pollutants, like dioxins and PCBs in agricultural crops is more the result of atmospheric
deposition than direct absorption from contaminated soil.
This report takes an in-depth look at the chal-
lenges facing New York City’s middle class. More
than a year in the works, the report draws upon an
extensive economic and demographic analysis, a
historical review, focus groups conducted in every
borough and over 100 individual interviews with ac-
ademics, economists and a wide range of individuals
on the ground in the five boroughs. These include
homeowners, labor leaders, small business own-
ers, real estate brokers and developers, immigrant
advocates, and officials from two dozen community
ADC’s latest addition to its family of outside
plant products, the Radiator II Below Ground
HDSLx Repeater Housing, is a highly costeffective
outside plant enclosure for local
loop electronics. With its advanced thermal
management capabilities, the Radiator II
extends the life of enclosed cards or
repeaters and reduces costly truck rolls and
maintenance. Radial placement of modular
card cages permits efficient and predictable
thermal transfer for uniform cooling. In
addition, its unique design allows the heat
to radiate externally, increasing the reliability
of the enclosed electronics....
Ozone (O3) is a secondary pollutant formed in the atmosphere throughout a complex non-linear chemical reaction involving two classes of precursors: the reactive volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and the oxides of nitrogen (NOx) in the presence of sunlight. The rapid urbanization and industrialization in Vietnam have brought about high air pollutant emissions including the O3 precursors. Ground level O3 may already be high in large cities like Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The O3 episode is very important for scene of view of photochemical smog in Hanoi.

Military tactics are like unto water; for water in its natural course runs away from high places and hastens downwards... Water shapes its course according to the nature of the ground over which it flows; the soldier works out his victory in relation to the foe whom he is facing. Therefore, just as water retains no constant shape, so in warfare there are no constant conditions. He who can modify his tactics in relation to his opponent and thereby succeed in winning, may be called a heaven-born captain. ...
Traditionally astrophysics has concerned itself with minimum time-scales measured
in hours rather than seconds. This was understandable as the available recording
media were slow; e.g. chart recorders and photographic plates. In the 1950s, 60s
and 70s wavebands away from the optical were developed; from ground based
radio studies to space and balloon borne high energy work. In contrast to optical
wavelengths instrumentation in these (high and low energy) regimes was capable
of time resolutions of less than a second....
The Army’s strategic vision calls for transformation to a
full-spectrum Objective Force that can project overwhelming
military power anywhere in the world on extremely short
notice. It must be agile, versatile, and lethal, achieving its
objectives through the application of dominant maneuver,
precision engagement, focused logistics, information superiority,
and highly survivable combat systems.
Human cloning has been one of the most emotive and
divisive issues to face UN negotiators and the international
community in recent years. This report examines how,
that despite a widespread consensus amongst nations
that it is desirable to ban reproductive cloning, efforts to
negotiate an international convention ground to a halt
due to fundamental divisions regarding so-called research
or therapeutic cloning. Firm positions on both sides of the
debate led to the compromise position of a non-binding
UN Declaration on Cloning, (A/RES/59/280).
In the future, the domestic voluntary carbon offset market may be largely superseded by a
mandatory U.S. trading program for greenhouse gas emissions. Even if it is, there may be
grounds for government oversight of the voluntary market today. Oversight may be
desirable, for example, to protect consumers and the public interest, to allow learning for
regulators, and to provide greater certainty for investors.
In the last year the Blacksmith Institute and Green Cross Switzerland have been using field studies and
expertise in pollution analysis to prepare estimates on the contribution of industrial toxic pollutants to the
burden of disease. The estimates in this report are based on information collected through the Blacksmith
Institutes Toxic Sites Identification Program (TSIP). This program is an ongoing process to identify and screen
contaminated sites in low and middle-income countries.
As fiber-to-the-x (FTTX) architectures gain momentum as a means for delivering
high-speed broadband services to homes and small businesses, many questions
have surfaced regarding the best way to connect the large number of drop
cables feeding into the network. Drop cables typically connect each optical
network terminal (ONT) at the subscriber premise to a fiber access terminal
where they are then connected to a main fiber distribution cable.
