This manual implements Air Force Policy Directive (AFPD) 32-10, Installations and Facilities, by
providing guidance for base and command liquid fuels maintenance (LFM) personnel with guide
procedures for field maintenance of permanently installed Air Force-owned, -leased, or -controlled
petroleum storage and dispensing systems. It also supplements detailed manufacturers’ instructions on
specific equipment and applies to all Air Force systems and activities for which the civil engineer (CE)
has maintenance responsibility....
And what about outside the UK? BPP Learning Media strives to make our materials available at prices
students can afford by local printing arrangements, pricing policies and partnerships which are clearly
listed on our website. A tiny minority ignore this and indulge in criminal activity by illegally photocopying
our material or supporting organisations that do. If they act illegally and unethically in one area, can you
really trust them?
Health care workers have the opportunity and the obligation to identify, treat, and
educate women who are being abused. Health care institutions can make significant
contributions to addressing violence against women by supporting clinicians and clients.
Developing and institutionalizing national health-sector policies, protocols, and norms
about violence call attention to the problem of gender-based violence, and help ensure
quality care for survivors of abuse.
This Outlook issue focuses on the reproductive health consequences of violence
Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)1 is now a major part of the healthcare
system in all advanced societies.2 It is also a common part of discourse in medicine and
healthcare. This growth of interest has only partially been matched by academic study of
it. Indeed, over recent years there has been an increasing recognition that CAM is
essentially under-researched (House of Lords 2000).
Wastes are very process-specific but the key pollutants can be derived from
knowledge of: the process, construction materials, corrosion / erosion mechanisms and
maintenance materials. Waste audits are used to gather information on the source, composition,
quantity and variability of all wastes. Waste prevention typically involves preventing the
arising of waste at source, minimising the arisings and recycling any waste that is generated.
Forty years ago, Congress asked the National Academies Committee on
Science, Engineering, and Public Policy (COSEPUP)—the only joint policy
committee of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of
Engineering, and Institute of Medicine—to look at the relationship between basic
research and national goals. That request, from the House Committee on Science
and Astronautics in 1964, resulted in the report Basic Research and National Goals.
Continuing interest in the subject of reliability and the heretofore unavailability
of our book Mathematical Theory of Reliability have encouraged publication of
this SIAM Classics edition. We have not revised the original version, although
much has transpired since its original publication in 1965. Although many
contemporary reliability books are now available, few provide as mathematically
rigorous a treatment of the required probability background as this one.
If you’re an absentee landlord — or just too busy to handle maintenance — a property manager
may be a good solution. This third-party manager runs the place, does the bookkeeping, scouts
out the best repair people, and takes those 3 a.m. phone calls. In addition, the manager collects
monthly rents and even leases the property for you. While they remove all the burdens from your
shoulders, they come at a price. You can expect to pay 5% to 10% of your gross income, and
even more if additional services are performed.
Property transactions data for private real estate portfolio managers are obtained from the
National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries (NCREIF), which collects transaction-level
data for for private entities (primarily pension funds). For a private pension fund, having one’s
properties be part of NCREIF’s portfolio is generally considered highly desirable, in that this gives
the fund prestige.
Visual inspection reveals that around the time of the EC recommendation of the early
warning to Portugal and Germany (rumours on 17 January, recommendation on 30
January), there was an increase in Portuguese 10-year government bond yields. The
cumulative increase in the Portuguese 10-year government bond yields reached 23 bp
to decline thereafter to 10 bp in the beginning of February. This movement of the
long-term yields implied a decline of the swap spread became negative in some days
of the period between 17 January and 30 January (see Figure 5).
In countries such as India, Indonesia, Mexico, and China, the popu-
lation growth rate is very high. The governments in these countries are
concerned about their ability to feed and care for an ever-increasing pop-
ulation. China has given the most attention to family planning. In 1970,
China began an ofﬁcial “one child–one family” policy. In each commu-
nity in China, government agencies work with couples to reach this goal.
The rate of population growth has declined in China, but other social
problems are developing.
This paper addresses some of the microeconomic implications of this policy regime
change, focusing on the flows of bank credit to the enterprise sector and analysing
independently the determinants of corporate credit from the side of lenders and borrowers. To
this effect we use results from the recent literature to formulate and specify equations
reflecting the motivation behind lending and borrowing decisions. These equations are
estimated econometrically using firm level data for Bulgarian firms for the period 1995-1999.
Mobile telephone technology should be used (where coverage allows this) to
automatically download data centrally, followed by automated QA checks and input to a
database. Data should be made available over the internet, updated on at least a daily
Locally based staff should visually check systems at least once a month and make a
preliminary investigation of any anomalous results. Calibration and basic maintenance
must be carried out during an annual visit by specialist staff.
Installation and site characteristics should follow ECN protocols (Sykes & Lane, 1996).
Changing or improving technology. Technologi cal improvements to vehicles are limited
by local capacity to absorb the technology, which includes both turnover rates and capabilities for
servicing and maintenance, and by the availability of fuel appropriate for the technology.
Consequently, vehicle technology strategies need to be developed in response to particular local
circumstances and in concert with fuel strategies.
Below are definitions of material improvement and signif
icant intervening use as they apply to vehicle donations.
■ Material improvement includes a major repair or
improvement that results in a significant increase in the
vehicle’s value. Cleaning, minor repairs, and routine
maintenance are not material improvements. In addition,
a material improvement to the vehicle will not qualify if
the donor funded the improvement by giving the charity
an additional payment.
Health, safety & environment manual includes company safety management system; job site hazard assessments; safe work practices; safe work procedures; company rules; personal protective equipment; preventative maintenance program.
This project will enhance the capacity in Vietnam to 'train the trainers', extension workers and staff responsible for the maintenance of quality of commodities during storage and marketing.
PHTI will provide flexible integrated courses on various aspects of post-harvest commodity quality management, with particular attention to containment and loss reduction. The training group will also be able to develop new training modules applicable to contaminant reduction in fruit and vegetables as strategies for monitoring and management of contaminants in vegetables are further developed....
The hard surfacing material required for the roads can be extracted in the hilly area to
the east of the Boa Plain.
It is proposed that a project manager with a wide international experience of planta-
tion crop development be appointed to direct the operation and ensure that i t func-
tions efficiently. He should be assisted by a field manager with a sound experience of
oi l palm and rubber planting to ensure a high standard of crop establishment and early
maintenance. Estate managers would be appointed during the development phase to
