Fisher and Mahalanobis described Statistics as the key technology of the twentieth century. Since then Statistics has evolved into a ﬁeld that has many applications in all sciences and areas of technology, as well as in most areas of decision making such as in health care, business, federal statistics and legal proceedings. Applications in statistics such as inference for Causal effects, inferences about the spatio- temporal processes, analysis of categorical and survival data sets and countless other functions play an essential role in the present day world.
Major Process Equipment Maintenance and Repair
If failed bearings are suspected in pump or motor: Check radial clearance and end float in motor. Run motor and check for abnormal noise, vibration. If motor is bad, remove and repair.Diagnosing Pump and Seal Problems In the Shop
While the pump is being repaired it is advisable to carefully examine every component. A recommended procedure is to match mark all parts prior to disassembly and to make the following checks while dismantling the pump:
This is particularly relevant because estimated differences between SRI and
conventional funds may not be due to the socially responsible investing per se, but to differences
between the companies that manage SRI funds and those that manage conventional funds.
Finally, we improve upon the matched-pair analysis employed in several prior studies by
using the matching estimator methodology of Abadie and Imbens (2006).
The smooth functioning of the money market depends critically on brokers and
dealers, who play a key role in marketing new issues of money market instruments and in providing
secondary markets where outstanding issues can be sold prior to maturity. Dealers use RPs to finance their
inventories of securities. Dealers also act as intermediaries between other participants in the RP market by
making loans to those wishing to borrow in the market and borrowing from those wishing to lend in the
Brokers match buyers and sellers of money market instruments on...
This study adds to the emerging literature examining empirically the link between
population size, other demographic factors and pollution. We contribute by using
more reliable estimation techniques and examine two air pollutants. By considering
sulfur dioxide, we become the first study to explicitly examine the impact of
demographic factors on a pollutant other than carbon dioxide at the cross-national
level. We also take into account the urbanization rate and the average household
size neglected by many prior cross-national econometric studies.
To validate a transaction prior to commit, the follow-
ing steps are executed. All replicas other than the pri-
mary have to execute the transaction operations and ver-
ify that the returned results match the results previously
obtained in the coordinator. Given that the transaction
executes in the same snapshot in every replica (as ex-
plained in the BEGIN operation), if the coordinator was
correct, all other correct replicas should obtain the same
results. If the coordinatorwas faulty, the results obtained
by the replicas will not match those sent by the client.
Residents are considered as transferring residents under several conditions which include:
when moving from one program to another within the same or different sponsoring institution;
when entering a PGY2 program requiring a preliminary year, even if the resident was
simultaneously accepted into the prelim PGY1 program and the PGY2 program as part of the
match (e.g., accepted to both programs right out of medical school).
For residents who have transferred into the
program, written verification of prior educational experience and a summative competency-
based performance evaluation should be available in the resident files for site visitors to
review. Examples of verification of previous educational experiences could include a list of
rotations completed, evaluations of various educational experiences, procedural/operative
A tutorial sheet explained the meaning of UML class
diagrams, and, using a simple example, described its
semantics. Subjects were not expected to have any prior
knowledge of UML, and this tutorial provided all the
UML background information they required for the
experimental task. A worked example demonstrated the
task that the subjects were to perform, by presenting a
small specification with four different diagrams, and for
each diagram indicating whether it matched the given
specification or not.
This paper introduces a novel framework for the accurate retrieval of relational concepts from huge texts. Prior to retrieval, all sentences are annotated with predicate argument structures and ontological identiﬁers by applying a deep parser and a term recognizer. During the run time, user requests are converted into queries of region algebra on these annotations. Structural matching with pre-computed semantic annotations establishes the accurate and efﬁcient retrieval of relational concepts. This framework was applied to a text retrieval system for MEDLINE. ...
