On March 20, 1905, a disastrous boiler explosion occurred in a shoe factory
in Brockton, Massachusetts, killing 58 persons, injuring 117 others,
and causing a quarter of a million dollars in property damage. For years
prior to 1905, boiler explosions had been regarded as either an inevitable
evil or “an act of God” (see Figs. 1.1 and 1.2).
Coincidentally, in the case of the aforementioned regulations a
STAG (STeam And Gas) cycle qualification is/was to provide about
6% of its steam generation to process. At this operating condition,
the overall performance approaches that of a conventional STAG
power generation cycle. Later in this paper, tables are provided
that define GE’s gas turbine and gas engine product
characteristics, which in turn illustrate the wide application range
and flexibility of these products to support cogeneration
LRAPs are also administered by state bar foundations,
public interest legal employers, and federal and state
governments to assist law graduates in pursuing and

day trading operations covering a term of years.
The Tesla plant in Lanskroun, Czech Republic, was the only producer of capacitors in Czechoslovakia, and of machinery
for that purpose. After central planning was abolished, AVX Kyocera gradually took over the plant and a process of selective
restructuring took place. The combination of gradual change and a positive outlook for the long-term viability of operations
encouraged many former employees (the average qualification level was high) to set up their own small supplier firms for
AVX Kyocera. After a few years, these local suppliers were able to compete with Japanese suppliers.
One final word of caution. It is true that imperfect asset substitutability does give the
government or the central bank an additional policy tool. But there is a qualification:
Goodhart’s Law will eventually apply to debt operations.
The central bank may virtually fix
the yield of its target bond. But if central bank action is known to have concentrated on a
particular maturity, then its information content is compromised. Investors may judge that
such paper is overpriced relative to paper of other maturities, and therefore avoid buying it.

The IS auditors require a wide range of knowledge as well as in-depth knowledge in the field of
information security. Continuous further education and training of the IS auditors is a basic
prerequisite for their work. Verification of such qualifications in the form of certificates (e.g. Audit
Team Leader for ISO 27001 audits based on IT-Grundschutz) are suitable for this purpose.
In general, it should be ensured that actual operations in the organisation are not significantly
disrupted by the IS audit when initiating the IS audit.

It is reasonable to suppose that TNCs affiliates operating in the Brazilian pulp and paper sector search
for exploring the advantages of producing lower costs pulp to the domestic and international paper
markets, but it is also expected that they make innovation efforts to absorb and to extend the short-fiber
pulp technological knowledge based on eucalyptus. The participation of four important TNCs in two
Research Consortiums on Eucalyptus in Brazil at the present time corroborates to this expectation. This
implies a qualification on the first hypothesis (H.
Since biomarkers of safety and efficacy are becoming tools in drug development, it is
necessary to determine whether these biomarkers can qualify for applications in clinical
trials. Qualification is defined as “a conclusion that the biomarker data submitted support
use of the biomarker in drug discovery, drug development or post approval studies and
where appropriate, in regulatory decision making” (ICH E-16). A definition of validation
was proposed during the workshop.
