Operative dentistry is a significant part of clinical dentistry, with
practitioners in the UK spending more than 60% of their time placing
and replacing direct restorations. In tandem with this many root canal
treatments are carried out and increasingly more indirect restorations
are placed. All practitioners whatever their discipline will remember
developing their manual skills while engaged in these procedures
during their student days.
Managers are naturally inclined to act in their own best interests. But the following factors affect managerial behavior: Managerial compensation plans, Direct intervention by shareholders, The threat of firing, The threat of takeover. Shareholders versus Creditors
Shareholders (through managers) could
take actions to maximize stock price
that are detrimental to creditors.
In the long run, such actions will raise
the cost of debt and ultimately lower
This book is based upon our combined experiences
of working together in the treatment of
patients with dental implant prostheses at Guy's
Hospital and in private practice over the last 10
years. While the chapters are not attributed to
specific authors, the surgical chapters are mainly
the work of Richard and Paul Palmer; the implant
denture chapters, Brian Smith; and the fixed
prosthodontics, Leslie Howe. Our initial experiences
were with the Brånemark system, which
established a benchmark in implant treatment,
with high success rates using meticulous techniques.
The aspirator should be aware of the pertinent history and clinical information, significant
radiological studies and the clinical question that FNAB may answer. The procedure as well as the
minor complications of bruising and bleeding should be explained to the patient. Site-specific
complications for deep needle aspiration biopsy should be described to the patient if image guided
FNAB is performed. Informed consent should be obtained from the patient, guardian or legal
Participants from DCF stakeholder groups (provider countries / recipient countries / civil society and parliamentarians /
UN system) are expected to brainstorm within their respective groups on how to advance gender equality in light of new
challenges faced by development cooperation, including the transition to sustainable development and the coordination
among different actors, approaches and flows to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women.
Farm mechanization helps in effective utilization of inputs to increase the
productivity of land and labour. Besides it helps in reducing the drudgery in farm
operations. The early agricultural mechanization in India was greatly influenced
by the technological development in England. Irrigation pumps, tillage equipment,
chaff cutters, tractors and threshers were gradually introduced for farm
Radiology is an essential component of dental diagnosis. Available
data clearly show that ionizing radiation, if delivered in sufficient
doses, may produce biological damage. However, it is not clear
that radiation in doses required for dental radiography presents
any risk. Neither is it clear that these small doses are free of risk.
The Port Authority would likely benefit from a meaningful organizational redesign to focus on
its strategic business units and cost saving shared services functions. To be successful,
entrusted appointed senior leadership needs effective command and control to manage change
and drive accountability throughout the organization.
The decision by the US and UK governments to use military force against Iraq
in 2003 and the subsequent occupation and administration of that State have
brought into sharp focus fundamental fault lines in international law. The deci-
sion to invade, the conduct of the war and occupation, and the mechanisms used
to administer the country all challenge the international legal community, placing
it at a crossroads.
In the long-term perspective, success in achieving both consumer benefits
and increasing competitiveness depends on the quality of basic research. In
often highly specialised areas, research co-operation between scientists in
different member states is of utmost importance to achieve and maintain a
high level of quality. Within EU research activities, the transnational nature of
research should hence be dealt with by combining complementary expertise
in different countries, also leading to increased research productivity through
economies of scale....
The diagnosis of "acute or surgical abdomen" is not an acceptable one because of its often misleading and erroneous connotation. The most obvious of "acute abdomens" may not require operative intervention, and the mildest of abdominal pains may herald an urgently correctable lesion. Any patient with abdominal pain of recent onset requires early and thorough evaluation and accurate diagnosis. Some Mechanisms of Pain Originating in the Abdomen Inflammation of the Parietal Peritoneum
A foreign company can commence operations in India by incorporating a company under the
Companies Act as a subsidiary (including a wholly owned subsidiary) or as a joint venture
Private or public companies are formed by first obtaining name availability approval, followed by
registering the memorandum and articles of association and prescribed forms with the Registrar
of Companies (ROC) in the state in which the registered office is to be located. If the documents
are in order, the ROC will issue a certificate of incorporation.
Our long-term vision is that children in developing
countries are protected from or effectively treated
for enteric and diarrheal diseases at the same rate as
children in developed countries. a number of low-cost
interventions exist and are effective for reducing child
deaths due to these diseases, but today they are not
available for many people in developing countries.
Industries with identified critical infrastructures should have full
and complete participation in the development of cybersecurity standards and best
practices. Any standards should be performance-based rather than technology-based to
ensure that they are not out-paced by the advancement of technology. Owners and
operators know best how to protect their own systems, and it is nearly impossible for
the speed of bureaucracy to keep pace with ever changing threats.
It is important to note that NPDES permits are only required of so-called “point sources.”
Point sources tend to be larger industrial and commercial facilities and public treatment facilities.
Some large agricultural operations are considered point sources, but, by and large, runoff from
farms, roads, lawns, and most small pollution sources are not directly regulated. These
“nonpoint sources” are the subject of increased scrutiny, since most of the nation’s remaining
water quality problems are due to nonpoint pollution.
The Storage Engine is a resource provider. When the relational engine attempts to execute
a T-SQL statement that accesses an object for the first time, it calls upon the storage engine
to retrieve the object, put it into memory and return a pointer to the execution engine. To
perform these tasks, the storage engine manages the physical resources for the TOE by
using the Windows OS.
The SQL-OS is a resource provider for all situations where the TOE uses functionality of the
operating system. SQL-OS provides an abstraction layer over common OS functions and...
Easier implementation could expand services.
Reported difficulties with implementing PMTCT programmes,
including the challenge of providing ARV
treatment in MCH settings and at the primary care level,
highlight the importance of simplifying drug regimens
and operational delivery, as exemplified by Options B
and B+. Easier implementation should facilitate expansion
of services and more effective programmes. This
will, however, require strengthened antenatal services,
task-shifting, more effective ARV service delivery in MCH
settings and direct linkages with ART programmes.
With combined power and heat generation (cogeneration) the
waste heat incurred during engine operation is recovered and
utilized to satisfy thermal system process requirements for low-
grade steam and/or hot water. In many cases this utilization of
waste heat results in overall systems of efficiencies of up to 90+%
(thermal + electrical). This efficient form of energy conversion is
able to achieve primary energy savings of about 40% using gas
engine cogeneration systems, compared with conventional
separate power and heat generation.

Stock-taking occurred in different forms: through the presentation of the World Bank’s and
of the Inter-American Development Bank’s studies on social funds, as well as through many
individual interventions by social funds’ managers during the plenary sessions and in working
groups. Ten original papers were also presented by relevant practitioners on specific topics
related to social funds’ design, management, and implementation. These papers provide an
overview of current design and implementation challenges and concerns facing social funds.
