To lay the foundations for a systematic procedure that could be applied to any scientific translation, this experiment evaluates the error variances attributable to various sources inherent in a design in which discrete, randomly ordered sentences from translations are rated for intelligibility and for fidelity to the original.
The title of this book is a little misleading, because learning to meditate
was one of the smartest decisions I ever made.
Meditation is power. Whatever you do, meditation can help you to do it better.
For example, my colleagues and I demonstrated, for the first time, that the
progression of even severe coronary heart disease often can reverse when
people go on my program of comprehensive lifestyle changes. Although many

Foundation building is neither picturesque nor especially interesting, but it is indispensable. However fair the

Would we comprehend the Germany of to-day, we must hold firmly in our minds an epitome of what it has
been, and see vividly the devious path of its development through the ages.

This book does not pretend to be a history of Australia; it merely gathers into one volume that which has hitherto been dispersed through many. Our story ends where Australian history, as it is generally written, begins; but the work of the forgotten naval pioneers of the country made that beginning possible. Four sea-captains in succession had charge of the penal settlement of New South Wales, and these four men, in laying the foundation of Australia, surmounted greater difficulties than have ever been encountered elsewhere in the history of British colonization.
EMC started on a journey to the cloud ten years ago, long before the term “cloud” became popular, laying the
foundation for more focused efforts that began in 2004. In April 2009, ESG published an initial audit of EMC’s
achievements, which were impressive: $74 million in data center equipment savings, $12+ million in power and
space savings, and dramatic increases in productivity, efficiency, and resource utilization. This update examines
EMC’s efforts over the past year, and reveals an acceleration of savings and a launch pad for further success.
