The Red River Delta (hereafter as RRD) is one of the two biggest deltas in Vietnam with the population is 19,625 million persons in 2009. It is also the most populous area with the population density of 932 person/km2 in 2009 (General Statistics Office, 2010). Tien Hai District of Thai Binh Province locates in the eastern part of the RRD, lies in the coastal zone - a sensitive area and affected by the interaction between the mainland and the South China Sea (in Vietnamese as Biển Đông - East Sea). The study area of this research is Van Truong...
Let us now examine plants with a view to learning the location of the various plants. The stem or trunk of the plant or tree consists almost entirely of woody fibre; this also forms a large portion of the other parts except the seeds, and, in some instances, the roots. The roots of the potato contain large quantities of starch. Other roots such as the carrot and turnip contain pectic acid,[J] a nutritious substance resembling starch.
Exploiting a unique data set containing information about the estimated bribe payments of Ugandan firms, the authors study the relationship between bribe payments, taxes, and firm growth in Uganda for the period 1995-97. Using industry-location averages to circumvent the potential problem of endogeneity, and to deal with issues of measurement error, they find that both the rate of taxation, and the rate of bribery are negatively correlated with firm growth.
Generally, a process is defi ned as a sequence of events that transforms the biological
materials of food products, via biochemical changes, into stable forms with added
value. This can create new products or modify existing ones. Process design refers to
the design of food processes and manufacturing methods, while plant design refers to
the design of the whole processing plant. The processing of food is no longer as simple
or straightforward as in the past. Food process design is an interdisciplinary science
that is highly regarded by the food industry.
This subcourse is designed to provide instruction on the concept and operation of the basic components of the hydraulic system. It also describes the various components of a typical hydraulic system, their construction and functions, and their relationship to each other. When the term hydraulics is applied to aircraft, it means a method of transmitting power from one location to another through the use of a confined fluid.
Chapter 3 INHALATION HAZARDS IN REFINERIES
Operations of the petroleum industry can logically be divided into production, refining, and marketing. Production includes locating and drilling oil wells, pumping and pretreating the crude oil, recovering gas condensate, and shipping these raw products to the refinery or, in the case of gas, to commercial sales outlets. Refining, which extends to the conversion of crude to a finished salable product, includes oil refining and the manufacture of various chemicals derived from petroleum.
Pacing through second decade of the 21th century, more computer users are widely adopting technology-based tools and information-enriched databases to focus on supporting managerial decision making, reducing preventable faults and improving outcome forecasting. The goal of decision support systems (DSS) is to develop and deploy information technology-based systems in supporting efficient practice in multidiscipline domains. This book aims to portray a pragmatic perspective of applying DSS in the 21th century.
Like the dollar bills on which its business is based, Wall Street has two
faces. On one side, it is a place – a street in lower Manhattan. On the
other, the term is shorthand for an industry – the US wholesale financial-
services industry. Since Wall Street, the place, is the hub of this
industry, much of the time the two meanings overlap. But lower Manhattan
is by no means the totality of the US wholesale financial-services
industry, and so sometimes the term embraces other locations and institutions....
The dynamic nature of the Jepara industrial complex also affects the Indonesian wood products
chain, attracting timber produced from forests located throughout Central Java (Figure 1) and
beyond, including the outer islands. Thousands of trucks and pickups bring logs into the district
from distant places, including state and community forest plantations.
For many marketers, mobile is the Holy Grail for Location Based Marketing. Location Based Marketing
promises an unprecedented new way to connect with consumers and deliver highly relevant and
targeted messages at a time and place when a consumer is most likely to act on them.
The Mobile Marketing Association (MMA) has developed this whitepaper to educate the industry on
Location Based Marketing, and to provide a general overview for mobile marketers seeking to
understand the potential opportunities for Location Based Services1 (“LBS).

Past analysis has shown that certain types of fraud or money laundering may be
recorded and/or initiated in one location, but take place in another. Suspected fraud
or money laundering through insurance company products is primarily detected
after the fact. Insurance companies may offer their products through a number of
distribution channels in a number of states, however the processing unit and service
center is generally centralized in one location.
This paper focuses primarily on analysis of the quantitative aspects of the research,
although this form of data collection was complemented by a series of consumer
The data was gathered using a postal and web-based questionnaire
that contained identical items. Although each sample was analysed individually, in
this paper these datasets have been combined and any notable differences highlighted
It is interesting to consider why a sponsor chooses to support a MMMF even though it is not contractually
required to do so. Fund sponsors may be concerned about their reputation in the market place, loss of
cross-selling opportunities, or the cost of potential investor lawsuits.
We posit that fund sponsors may
also choose to provide support because they initially underestimate the amount of support necessary to
fully alleviate financial concerns in the funds. While the entirety of support is costly, the incremental cost
at each point may appear worthwhile. ...
Abstract Exploiting a unique data set containing information on the estimated bribe payments of Ugandan firms, we study the relationship between bribery payments, taxes and firm growth over the period 1995-97. Using industry-location averages to circumvent the potential problem of endogeneity, and to deal with issues of measurement error, we find that both the rate of taxation and bribery are negatively correlated with firm growth.
Image registration is the process of spatially aligning two or more images of a scene.
This basic capability is needed in various image analysis applications. The alignment
process will determine the correspondence between points in the images, enabling
the fusion of information in the images and the determination of scene changes.
If identities of objects in one of the images are known, by registering the images,
identities of objects and their locations in another image can be determined.
The period from 2006 to 2012 saw a
number of major events, a very significant
one being the global meltdown in the
banking and financial services industry
(BFSI), which had knock-on effects on
almost all business sectors.
Considering that we now live in a connected
world, India faced its own share of
consequences although companies in the
BFSI segment remained relatively unaffected
by the turmoil seen in the Western world.
It seemed as though the tighter regulatory
regime had paid a dividend in an imploding
All ground water sources should be
located a safe distance from sources of
contamination. In cases where sources are
severely limited; however, a ground water
aquifer that might become contaminated
may be considered for a water supply, if
treatment is provided. After a decision has
been made to locate a water source in an
area, it is necessary to determine the
distance the source should be placed from
the origin of contamination and the direction
of water movement. A determination of a
safe distance is based on specific local
factors described in the section on "Sanitary

This paper attempts to measure and analyze the interdependent economic relations between the countries of Thailand and Vietnam, made possible by constructing a bilateral inputoutput (I-O) table linking the said two countries. It is an inter-regional type of I-O models that provides a compact and comprehensive accounting framework to quantify the economic interrelationships among and between industries located in the study regions.
