  • As the program and concept of family planning grew more accepted, demand grew for other types of contraception, resulting in a pioneering project that used CHWs to deliver Depo Provera injections to their clients in their homes. The community-based distribution program proved so successful, it expanded from its initial three sites to 72 by the mid-1990s. Door-to-door delivery, however, is a costly and time-consuming approach to delivering family planning services. In 1991 Pathfinder’s projects in Bangladesh began to move toward a more sustainable village-based depot approach.

  • Dictionaries and scholars have offered a variety of definitions. The Merriam-Webster dictionary offers a definition of the term: "the practical application of knowledge especially in a particular area" and "a capability given by the practical application of knowledge".[6] Ursula Franklin, in her 1989 "Real World of Technology" lecture, gave another definition of the concept; it is "practice, the way we do things around here".[7] The term is often used to imply a specific field of technology, or to refer to high technology or just consumer electronics, rather than technology as a whole.

  • It is necessary to have a (large) annotated corpus to build a statistical parser. Acquisition of such a corpus is costly and time-consuming. This paper presents a method to reduce this demand using active learning, which selects what samples to annotate, instead of annotating blindly the whole training corpus. Sample selection for annotation is based upon “representativeness” and “usefulness”. A model-based distance is proposed to measure the difference of two sentences and their most likely parse trees.

  • This publication sheds light on the issue of decentralisation in Mexico. It shows that decentralisation can make decision-making more efficient and increase local participation in development issues. Decentralisation can provide a better framework to improve local infrastructure and to channel the necessary finance from public and private sources. The modernisation of infrastructure systems in Mexico's cities and regions would improve the quality of life and stimulate economic development, thus fostering entrepreneurship and employment.

  • This paper studied the effects of Co, Ni replacement in the Fe1-xCoxFe2O4 and Fe1-yNiyFe2O4 (x, y = 0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5) nanoparticles, pH, weight of nanoparticles/ml of water and time of stirring on the arsenic removal ability. The results showed that small amount of 0.25 g/l of Fe3O4 nanoparticles after stirring time of 3 minutes can reduce the arsenic concentration from 0.1 mg/l to 0.01 mg/l. The removal was also affected by the pH of the water.

  • A computer program for synthesizing Japanese fundamental frequency contours implements our theory of Japanese intonation. This theory provides a complete qualitative description of the known characteristics of Japanese intonation, as well as a quantitative model of tone-scaling and timing precise enough to translate straightforwardly into a computational algorithm. An important aspect of the description is that various features of the intonation pattern are designated to be phonological properties of different types of phrasal units in a hierarchical organization.

  • During the last thirty years of his life, Albert Einstein sought relentlessly for a so-called unified field theory—a theory capable of describing nature's forces within a single, all-encompassing, coherent framework. Einstein was not motivated by the things we often associate with scientific undertakings, such as trying to explain this or that piece of experimental data. Instead, he was driven by a passionate belief that the deepest understanding of the universe would reveal its truest wonder: the simplicity and power of the principles on which it is based.

  • A significant amount of time has passed since I first put this effort together. Much has changed in Numerical Analysis. Researchers now seem often content to rely on packages prepared by others even more than they did a decade ago. Perhaps this is the price to be paid by tackling increasingly ambitious problems. Also the advent of very fast and cheap computers has enabled investigators to use inefficient methods and still obtain answers in a timely fashion.

  • The ‘electronic book’ is a feature of this early 21st Century. I have been in academic life for several decades, and have I hope responded with flexibility to changes over that time.
