I was a closet meat eater, a vegetarian trying not to get caught with
a pork chop, beef patty, or chicken sausage in my hand. Now I am a
fl exitarian and don’t have to wear a scarlet letter for eating a little red
I want to be a vegetarian because of the countless health benefi ts.
I also want to enjoy backyard barbecue hamburgers in the summertime,
hot dogs at a Cubs baseball game, Grandma’s pork roast made
with love, my father-in-law’s beef chili, Mom’s perfectly seasoned steak
grilled to perfection by Dad, and Th anksgiving turkey....
MalcolmShaw’s engaging and authoritative International Law has become
the deﬁnitive textbook for instructors and students alike, in this increas-
ingly popular ﬁeld of academic study. The hallmark writing style provides
a stimulating account, motivating students to explore the subject more
fully, while maintaining detail and academic rigour. The analysis inte-
grated in the textbook challenges students to develop critical thinking
skills. The sixth edition is comprehensively updated throughout and is
carefully constructed to reﬂect current teaching trends and course cov-
An intensive weight loss program in Slovenia including
behavioral, psychological, cognitive and physical ele-
ments has shown promising long-term results on 48 sub-
jects . Median weight loss of completers when they
left the program was 11.5 kg. At least 5 years later, 13 of
them still maintained the reduced weight.
It is important to note that only participants who had
successfully completed at least 4 months of treatment
were included in the analysis.
Learning a GUI framework should be easy, but it’s usually hard. Reading this book, I realized by contrast that the reason it’s usually hard is that it’s no fun. Lyle’s results-oriented approach to teaching makes learning FXRuby fun, and therefore easy. This book is a motivating, well-written tutorial about getting things done in one of Ruby’s most established widget toolkits from its most authoritative source. Chad Fowler CTO, InfoEther Founding Co-director, Ruby Central FXRuby is a rich, mature GUI toolkit that Lyle has maintained and documented very well for years.
The fulfilment of an incentive programme is the travel experience itself, but this is preceded by
a motivational campaign, beginning with a launch event. Planning cycles vary depending on
the industry sector of the provider. Approximately a third of incentive campaigns start six
months before the trip takes place; the remaining two thirds start between six and 18 months
Measurable objectives are set by the incentive providers – usually the company’s sales or
marketing director, often working in tandem with a specialist incentive travel agency.
The beginning of this book was university lecture notes and training material for process
engineers. Although it now is a lot more comprehensive, it has been our intention to
maintain a mixed academic and industrial approach to the various subjects. Our motivation
for writing this book has been the need for a text covering the full range from the underlying
physics to the process applications of radioisotope gauges. We could not deal with all
subjects in detail; however, we have included references to many excellent books and
articles where further details can be found....
I do not know what prompted me to apply for the post of Primary Health Care Alcohol Liaison Worker and Counsellor with the Acorn Community Drug and Alcohol Service in Surrey, other than that it somehow felt right. I had not previously
had experience of working with people with alcohol problems. It was late 1994 and I had recently left my job as a Fundholding Manager at a GP surgery in Guildford, having earlier completed my diploma training in person-centred counselling and psychotherapy.
Motivated by the recent interest in streaming algorithms for processing large text collections, we revisit the work of Ravichandran et al. (2005) on using the Locality Sensitive Hash (LSH) method of Charikar (2002) to enable fast, approximate comparisons of vector cosine similarity. For the common case of feature updates being additive over a data stream, we show that LSH signatures can be maintained online, without additional approximation error, and with lower memory requirements than when using the standard ofﬂine technique. ...
Today, across the globe, many local governmental incentives have
been established to help promote the development of new
cogeneration applications with an objective of driving fuel
utilization. One such example is the SPP (Small Power Plant) in
Thailand. While such incentives are not new (for example, PURPA in
the US), the underlying motivations can be different.
