The purpose of your meeting is to resolve conflicts so that they won’t recur. Make your position clear: You
are meeting because you respect the work of the department, you understand the priority of work, and you
want to help. Communicating your desire to work with the manager and not against the goals of his or her
department will enlist much more cooperation.
Example: One project manager was under a great deal of pressure to complete the last phase of a project. He
was already behind schedule, and his boss was applying pressure to finish it up.
Using these assessment factors, a business may decide that it can allow devices like Segways
in its facilities, but cannot allow the use of golf cars in the same facility. It is likely that many
businesses will allow the use of Segways® generally, although some may decide to exclude
them during their busiest hours or on particular shopping days when pedestrian traffic is
particularly dense. Businesses are encouraged to develop written policies specifying when
other power-driven mobility devices will be permitted on their premises and to communicate
those policies to the public.
As information extraction (IE) becomes more central to enterprise applications, rule-based IE engines have become increasingly important. In this paper, we describe SystemT, a rule-based IE system whose basic design removes the expressivity and performance limitations of current systems based on cascading grammars. SystemT uses a declarative rule language, AQL, and an optimizer that generates high-performance algebraic execution plans for AQL rules. We compare SystemT’s approach against cascading grammars, both theoretically and with a thorough experimental evaluation. ...
The paper describes the application of kMeans, a standard clustering technique, to the task of inducing semantic classes for German verbs. Using probability distributions over verb subcategorisation frames, we obtained an intuitively plausible clustering of 57 verbs into 14 classes. The automatic clustering was evaluated against independently motivated, handconstructed semantic verb classes.

"Warfare" can be broadly defined as "the waging of armed conflict against an enemy." In this
module we will consider what warfare means in the context of today's information systems and
networks. We will see that the fundamental principles of warfare known for thousands of years are
still relevant on today's new battleground.
Enterprise data centers contain the assets, applications, and data that are often targeted by electronic
attacks. Endpoints such as data center servers are key objectives of malicious attacks and must be
protected. The number of reported attacks, including those that affect data centers, continues to grow
exponentially every year (CERT/CC Statistics 1988-2002, CSI/FBI 2001).
Attacks against server farms can result in lost business for e-commerce and business-to-business
applications, and the theft of confidential or proprietary information.
Risk management is an evolving discipline. Several organizations have sought to provide
assistance and thought leadership through the development of risk management frameworks and
guidance. Much, if not most, of this guidance is focused on traditional operating companies and
does not contemplate the externally managed structure of investment companies. As a result,
while the guidance these organizations have provided is sound, it typically does not focus on
the unique issues faced by funds and their boards of directors.
The Business Requirements for Teleworker Services When designing network architectures that support a teleworking

against the practical needs of teleworkers for ease of use, connection
speeds, and reliability of service.
