  • We describe an original method that automatically finds specific topics in a large collection of texts. Each topic is first identified as a specific cluster of texts and then represented as a virtual concept, which is a weighted mixture of words. Our intention is to employ these virtual concepts in document indexing. In this paper we show some preliminary experimental results and discuss directions of future work.

  • With a few exceptions, discriminative training in statistical machine translation (SMT) has been content with tuning weights for large feature sets on small development data. Evidence from machine learning indicates that increasing the training sample size results in better prediction. The goal of this paper is to show that this common wisdom can also be brought to bear upon SMT.

  • The use of industrially manufactured nitrogen (N) fertilizers increased rapidly in developed countries between 1960 and 1980. This facilitated a large increase in the production of feed and food grains (maize, wheat, and rice) per unit of cultivated land, but in some regions it also contributed to enrichment of surface and groundwater with various forms of nitrogen. Fertilizer, however, is not the only source of nitrogen that can cause contamination of surface waters.

  • Regardless of the motivation, sponsor behavior observed through these support instances suggests that while the costs can be significant, the perceived benefits at the time of support were greater to most fund sponsors. Understanding both the significance to the sponsor and their motivations would be important in making judgments as to whether investors should reasonably expect this model to continue, as it is possible that the sponsor value proposition could shift, especially where necessary support amounts are large. ...

  • The impact of an earthquake, flood or war on reproductive health can be devastating. Communities in crisis are suddenly deprived of reproductive health information and services. Access is cut off, yet needs persist, even escalate. A large number of refugees and internally displaced women will be pregnant, facing delivery under dangerous conditions; others may be victims of violence including rape. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is committed to assisting and protecting women, men and youth made vulnerable by natural disaster, armed conflict, persecution and other causes.

  • Long term interest rates play an important role in economics and Önance due to their impact on real activity. Nevertheless, it is widely recognized that forecasting their level is di¢ cult. In the same way, modelling their link to monetary policy is not so easy even if this relationship appears crucial, as emphasized by Goodfriend (1993) for the United States. Similarly the same di¢ culty concerns the rational expectations hypothesis framework in which most empirical analyses of the term structure of interest rates are conducted.

  • Leadership is one of the most important and essential factors in good project management. Leadership can be seen as the art of influencing others to achieve desired results. Leaders guide behaviors by setting the vision, direction and the key processes; in other words, leadership has a large influence on the whole project process, including the actions of others. Jack Welch, previous CEO of General Electric, is reported to have called his direct reports together one day and issued a three word dictum: “Don’t manage! Lead!”(Slater, 1998).

  • Here, bank A has borrowed from bank B, and bank B has borrowed from bank C, etc. Then, if A takes a hit and defaults, then bank B will suffer a loss. If the loss is large enough to wipe out B’s capital, then B defaults. Bank C then takes a hit. In turn, if the loss is big enough, bank C defaults, etc. We could dub this the “domino” model of fi nancial contagion. If the domino model of fi nancial contagion is the relevant one for our world, then defaults on subprime mortgages would have had...

  • Mover’s Distance (EMD) to explicitly align the volumes. In contrast to the fixed volume-to-volume matching used in [25], the space-time volumes of two videos across different space-time locations can be matched using our ASTPM method, making it better at coping with the large intraclass variations within the same type of events (e.g., moving objects in consumer videos can appear at different space- time locations, and the background within two different videos, even captured from the same scene, may be shifted due to considerable camera motion).

  • California, like many states, is facing a large budget deficit and difficult budgetary choices. The state legislature has made cuts to Early Care and Education (ECE)1 projected to total more than $1.6 billion between fiscal years 2009–2010 and 2011–2012 (California Budget Project [CBP] 2011). Since 2009, California has faced double-digit unemployment rates (California Employment Development Department 2011) and unemployment is projected to remain at that level through 2012 (Legislative Analyst’s Office [LAO] 2010b).

  • Despite mounting public concern, the factors influencing this illness are not fully understood, especially for children. Medical research has demonstrated that asthma is both a chronic and acute illness.

  • In this paper we introduce a novel use of the lexicographic semiring and motivate its use for speech and language processing tasks. We prove that the semiring allows for exact encoding of backoff models with epsilon transitions. This allows for off-line optimization of exact models represented as large weighted finite-state transducers in contrast to implicit (on-line) failure transition representations.

  • We find that the market capitalization of railroads (SIC 4000) in the CRSP population is 12 percent of the total. We find that the market capitalization of public utilities, including electric, gas, and sanitary services (SIC 4900), as well as communications (SIC 4800) and local and interurban passenger transit (SIC 4100) accounts for 17 percent of the total market capitalization of the CRSP population of companies. The remaining 71 percent is considered to be in industrials.

  • The theory of automorphic functions in one complex variable was created during the second half of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries. Important contributions are due to such illustrious mathematicians as F. Klein, P. Koebe and H. Poincare. Two sources may be traced: the uniformization theory of algebraic functions, and certain topics in number theory. Automorphic functions with respect to groups with compact quotient space on the one hand and elliptic modular functions on the other are examples of these two aspects.

  • Such a criticism of course applies with particular force to the US Federal Reserve since, in addition to their monetary responsibilities, they are also the regulator of US bank holding companies. They need to explain why they were not more forceful and effective in getting banks under their charge to reduce the concentration risk associated with large holdings of both unsecuritized and securitized mortgages and other asset-backed securities. 10 Reform of Wall Street compensation plans has been discussed for some time, going back well before this crisis.
