In general, the islands increase in size from east to west, with Papua New Guinea at the western-most edge of the region having most of the region’s land area.

  • A materialized view (MV) is a more complex physical design structure than an index since a materialized view may be defined over multiple tables, and can involve selection, projection, join and group by. This richness of structure of MVs makes the problem of selecting materialized views significantly more complex than that of index selection. First, for a given query (and hence workload) the space of materialized views that must be considered is much larger than the space of indexes. For example, MVs on any subset of tables referenced in the query may be relevant.

  • In a dynamic admissions landscape, one of the primary drivers of admissions success is static and unchanging—an effective, error-free application. While it may seem rudimentary, applicants are encouraged to thoroughly proofread their applications for careless errors and enlist trusted friends, family, colleagues or a skilled admissions consultant to do the same to avoid the number one most common application faux pas.

  • Procrastination is captured by the tendency of many people to have high short-term discount rates but lower long-term discount rates (hyperbolic discounting). Postponing a cost, even one that generates high future benefits, is therefore attractive. So too is advancing a benefit to the present, even if this implies high future costs. This leads to outcomes such as credit card borrowing at high interest rates and unwillingness to engage in painful activities such as financial planning.

  • According to the traditional water pollution control approach, user-requirement issues would often be overlooked because the identification of such problems is not based on objectively verifiable indicators. Whereas an impact issue can be identified by the presence of, for example, a pollution source or a human activity causing deterioration of the aquatic resources (e.g. deforestation), user-requirement issues are identified by a lack of water of adequate quality for a specific, intended use. ...

  • Research Councils UK (RCUK) accepts that each research organisation’s (RO) procedures for ensuring reporting on and investigation into allegations of unacceptable research conduct must be aligned to their own internal requirements. In many cases ROs will need to align these with other human resource and disciplinary/conduct procedures. In the absence of existing procedures or where ROs are upgrading these, RCUK also notes the published guidance by the UK Research Integrity Office (August 2008) on “Procedure for the Investigation of Misconduct in Research”.
