English Heritage is the Government’s adviser on the historic environment.Central to our role is the advice we give to local planning authorities and governmentdepartments on development proposals affecting historic buildings,sites and areas,archaeology on land and underwater,designed landscapes and the historic aspects of the landscape as a whole.We also manage an estate of over 400 historic propertiesopen to the public.This guidance is intended for developers of wind energy projectswhich may affect any of these aspects of the historic environment.
This book includes selected peer-reviewed chapters which cover novel aspects of cysticercosis and neurocysticercosis written by well known international researchers, representing the most relevant Working Group for Cysticercosis of Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, most of the Eastern and Southern Africa countries and Europe plus other contributions from Canada and United States of America.
I do not propose in this paper to enter into any general inquiry about the best method of writing history. Such
inquiries appear to me to be of no real value, for there are many different kinds of history which should be
written in many different ways.
The success of the first volume of The Biology of Sea Turtles revealed a need for
broad but comprehensive reviews of recent major advances in sea turtle biology. At
that time, book size constraints as well as the fast-paced changes in some fields
dictated that this need could be only partially addressed in a single volume. Many
important topics were not covered and were left for future volumes. Volume II
emphasizes practical aspects of biology that relate to sea turtle management and
changes in marine and coastal ecosystems....
Technology is pervasive—invading all areas of our personal and business
lives. In our personal lives, we have some control over how much
technology we will tolerate, but not so in our professional lives. Every aspect
of modern organizations involves technology, to the extent that auditors can
no longer audit around the computer as they did from 1960 until recently.
Technology is an important element of a majority of the controls that are,
or should be, in place.
For writers of technical books, there can be no better piece of
Around the time of writing the first edition – about a
decade ago – there were very few monographs on this subject:
today, there are possibly no less than 20.
Based on critical inputs, this edition stands thoroughly
revamped. New chapters on ventilator waveforms, airway
humidification, and aerosol therapy in the ICU now find a
place. Novel software-based modes of ventilation have been
included. Ventilator-associated pneumonia has been separated
into a new chapter.
In this day and age of ever-shorter time schedules and increasing expectations of productivity gains in every aspect of engineering activity, creative problem solving has become prominent among the most important skills that engineers possess. Unfortunately, in the day-to-day intensity of the search for new engineering solutions, it is easy to lose touch with the foundations of that creativity.
Vitamin E is an important topic because many benefits and some risks have
been attributed to it when used as a nutritional supplement. Moreover, there
has been considerable progress in the basic science of this vitamin in recent
years. This volume reviews recent aspects of the biochemistry and molecular
biology of this vitamin, associated macromolecules, metabolism of the
vitamin and its derivatives, and its many roles in health and disease. The
various contributions comprising this volume are listed here in the order in
which they are presented in the volume....
It is difficult to overemphasize the importance of magnetic resonance techniques in
chemistry. Experimental spectra can usually be successfully interpreted empirically,
but more difficult cases require a prediction based on the electronic structure. In the
last 25 years the calculation of magnetic resonance parameters from first principles
has become a powerful research tool that can significantly enhance the utility of
magnetic resonance techniques when empirical interpretations are insufficient.
Producers are also avid users of social media. Historically, producers have networked within a defined
geographic territory. Because people generally only buy from producers they trust, developing trust has
generally meant face-to-face interaction. However, as people grow more accustomed to trusting
relationships developed online, producers who excel at developing such relationships will likely pursue
licenses and sales opportunities outside traditional geographic areas.
During the emergence of sociology as an academic discipline the questions
about the origins, status and functions of constitutions were widely
posed. Indeed, for both thematic and methodological reasons, the analysis
of constitutions was a central aspect of early sociology. Sociology
developed, however ambiguously, as a critical intellectual response to the
theories and achievements of the Enlightenment in the eighteenth
century, the political dimension of which was centrally focused on the
theory and practice of constitutional rule....
The PPS also recognises that renewable energydevelopments may have an adverse effect on both the historic and natural environment.It thereforestipulates that applications affecting World HeritageSites should only be granted after an assessment has shown that the integrity of the site would not be adversely affected.
Since the subject of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) was awarded its first
Nobel Prize in 1952 due to its successful detection by Bloch and Purcell in
1945, the technology and its applications have developed tremendously. The
first two decades were focused on technical developments of instrumentation
and methodologies to apply to the structure determination of compounds.
During the late 1970s, several research groups developed modifications of
NMR probes to convert them to an online mode for the analysis of sample
Finally, a line of research has been
developed which has emphasised the organisation’s cultural and anthropological aspects as part of its
control system, either as an internal variable that conditions the behaviour of individuals, their
relationships and their motivation, or else as a metaphor, in other words an ideology that must be
transmitted and communicated to individuals.
The Readymade did not and was not able to address itself to
depiction; its concern is with the object, and so if we were to
classify it within the canonical forms it would be sculpture. But
no-one who has thought about it accepts that a Readymade is
sculpture. Rather it is an object that transcends the traditional
classifications and stands as a model for art as a whole, art as a
historical phenomenon, a logic, and an institution. As Thierry
de Duve has so well demonstrated, this object designates itself
as the abstraction ‘art as such’, the thing that can...
In recent years there has been growing attention to the potential economic benefits of
improvements in population health. This is far from new: historically, one of the
origins of the public health movement lies in the awareness that the prosperity of
nations is partly dependent on the health of their populations.
There are five things to keep in mind as you write comments about the beers you judge. First, your
comments should be as positive as possible. Acknowledge the good aspects of the beer rather than
focusing only on the negative characteristics. Not only does this help make any negative comments
easier to take as a brewer, but it gives your evaluation more credibility. Second, and related, be polite in
everything that you write about a beer. Sarcastic and deprecating remarks should never be made on a
scoresheet. Third, be descriptive and avoid using ambiguous terms like “nice.
Ideally situated in the heart of southern France, equi-distant between the Mediterranean Sea, the Atlantic Ocean and
the Pyrenees mountains, Toulouse is emerging as a leading city in France for its quality of life.
The School is housed in the “Manufacture des Tabacs” campus, a short walk from the “Place du Capitole” and the
superb architecture of the historic town centre. Toulouse is a young and multi-ethnic city where students can easily
enjoy the lively streets, cafés and restaurant terraces as well as a rich cultural and sporting environment.
This study, which was prepared primarily as a Research Studentship Report for the University of London, is
intended to be a contribution to the history of rates of postage, and an attempt to ascertain the principles,
economic or otherwise, on which they are and have been based.
