The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (pNNL) is developing and implementing a customer satisfaction assessment program (CSAP) to assess the quality of research and development provided by the laboratory. This report presents the customer survey
component of the PNNL CSAP. The customer survey questionnaire is composed of two major sections: Strategic Value and Project Performance.,,
The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL)is amulti-program laboratory
operated by Battelle for the United States Department of Energy (DOE). PNNL is one of
the laboratories operated by the DOE ,Ofice of Science. PNNL is tasked with the
development and delivery of technology in environmental science, energy science, health
science and national security. The laboratory employs approximately 3500 stti members .-
and has an operating budget of approximately $500 to $600 million.

The West Pearl Queen reservoir project also used
soil gas surveys to detect PFC tracers that were
injected into the reservoir with the CO2. Soil gas
sampling was conducted before and after the CO2
injection by using capillary tubes and adsorbent
packets for the tracers. Brookhaven National
Laboratory (BNL) supplied the tracers and
performed the tracer concentration analysis (Wells
et al., 2007).
Near-Surface Geophysics – The use of
magnetometers is another possible near-surface
development, and analysis programs. The Board is charged to review the work only of ARL’s six directorates—and this excludes review of two key elements of the ARL organization that manage and support basic research: the Army Research Office and the Collaborative Technology Alliances. The advice provided focuses on technical rather than programmatic considerations. The Board is assisted by six standing National Research Council (NRC) panels, each of which focuses on a portion of the ARL program conducted by one of...
For portfolio managers the question if the rise in synchronization across national
equity markets is driven by fundamentals, and therefore likely to be permanent, or if it is
linked to the recent stock market bubble, and therefore temporary, is critical. This is because
portfolio managers have traditionally followed a top-down approach, first choosing countries
in which to invest and then selecting the best securities in each market.
ABSTRACT This paper is a review of recent trends in United States expenditures on research and development (R&D). Real
expenditures by both the government and the private sector increased rapidly between the mid-1970s and the mid-1980s, and have
since leveled off. This is true of both overall expenditures and expenditures on basic research, as well as funding of academic research.
Preliminary estimates indicate that about $170 billion was spent on R&D in the United States in 1995, with ≈60% of that funding
coming from the private sector and about 35% from the federal government.
Digital electronics is one of the fundamental courses found in all electrical
engineering and most science programs. The great variety of LabVIEW
Boolean and numeric controls/indicators, together with the wealth of
programming structures and functions, make LabVIEW an excellent tool to
visualize and demonstrate many of the fundamental concepts of digital
electronics. The inherent modularity of LabVIEW is exploited in the same
way that complex digital integrated circuits are built from circuits of less
complexity, which in turn are built from fundamental gates.

This book addresses the fundamental questions concerning the economic
reinvigoration of society through policies aimed at encouraging the development
of small enterprises. Governments in Europe, the rest of the industrialised
world and developing countries are increasingly including small enterprise
development as a central feature of economic and social policies. Nowhere
was this more evident than during the 1980s in Britain, as the Conservative
government sought to establish an enterprise culture.
In January 1976, the Transportation Energy Conservation (TEC) Division of the Energy
Research and Development Administration contracted with Oak Ridge National Laboratory
(ORNL) to prepare a Transportation Energy Conservation Data Book to be used by TEC staff in
their evaluation of current and proposed conservation strategies. The major purposes of the Data
Book were to draw together, under one cover, transportation data from diverse sources, to
resolve data conflicts and inconsistencies, and to produce a comprehensive document.
This book is about the changes that elected and appointed leaders are making to
the art and practice of governing, governance, and government. It is about how
public managers are shaping and guiding governments’ responses to a fundamental
movement for change that began in the last decades of the twentieth century.
The first panel of our program will
focus on the next generation of
scientists, “Science for All Students.”
We have three panelists participating in this
discussion: Drs. Leon Lederman, Richard Tapia,
and Marcia Linn.
Dr. Lederman is an internationally renowned
high-energy physicist, the Director Emeritus of
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in
Batavia, Illinois. He holds an appointment as
the Pritzker Professor of Science at Illinois
Institute of Technology in Chicago.
Nutrition during childhood and adolescence is essential
for growth and development, health and well-being. [1,2]
Further, eating behaviors established during childhood
track into adulthood and contribute to long-term health
and chronic disease risk. [3,4] Numerous studies have
consistently documented that dietary intake patterns of
American children and adolescents are poor and do not
meet national dietary goals. [5-8] In addition, US food
consumption trend data show a shift over the past few
The quality assurance teams and managers supported the evolution of the
breast screening programme locally, and professional quality assurance
groups were developed with the relevant associations and royal colleges
at a national level. In 1990, a new post of national coordinator of the
NHSBSP was established, based at one of the regional heath authori-
ties. Mrs Julietta Patnick at the Trent Region in Sheffield was appointed,
and she is now the Director of the NHS Cancer Screening Programmes,
which includes the NHSBSP.
Crossbreeding work in Ethiopia was initiated in the early 1950s. Following this initiation
a number of governmental (example, Ethiopian Agricultural Research Organization,
Ministry of Agriculture, National Artificial Insemination Center, Higher Learning Institutes)
and non-governmental organizations (International Livestock Research Institute and
Swedish International Development Agency) have worked in the development of the
decreasing their value added. Successful, cost-effective investment into energy efficiency
technologies and practices meets the challenge of maintaining the output of a high quality
product while reducing production costs. This is especially important, as energy efficient
technologies often include “additional” benefits, such as increasing the productivity of the
Energy use is also a major source of emissions in the refinery industry, making energy
efficiency improvement an attractive opportunity to reduce emissions and operating costs.
Fine-Needle Aspiration Cytology/ Biopsy (FNAC/FNAB) is now a widely accepted diagnostic
procedure, which has largely replaced open biopsy. This method is applicable to lesions
that are easily palpable, for example swellings in Thyroid, Breast, superficial Lymph node
etc. Imaging techniques, mainly ultra-sonography and computed tomography, offer an
opportunity for guided FNAC of deeper structures.
The practice of diagnostic cytology needs proper training of the laboratory personnel including
cytopathologist, cytotechnologist and cytotechnician.
The calculation of indirect and induced (multiplier) impacts is
made on the basis of input-output (I-O) accounting tables. These matrices show
the pattern of purchases and sales between industries in the economy. Base tables
are constructed at a national level, and tables for smaller regions are derived by
regionalizing the core BEA tables to reflect inter-regional purchasing patterns.
