E L James is a TV executive, wife and mother of two,
based in West London. Since early childhood, she
dreamt of writing stories that readers would fall in love
with, but put those dreams on hold to focus on her
family and her career. She finally plucked up the
courage to put pen to paper with her first novel, Fifty
Shades of Grey. E L James is currently working on a
new romantic thriller with a supernatural twist
The concept of tissue engineering is to
regenerate target tissue by mimicking the developmental or regenerative process of that
tissue. Thus, it can be considered an ideal therapeutic option for treating various tissue
defects. Tissue engineering of skin, cartilage, and bone has already been shown both feasible
and effective in several clinical studies, and its efficacy has attracted significant attention
from both patients and doctors.
Embedded derivatives are simply derivatives embedded in a host contract.
Therefore, the measurement rules for embedded derivatives which are required to
be separated are the same as those applicable to stand alone derivatives in IAS 39.
If the embedded derivative is separated from the host contract then the embedded
derivative shall be valued at fair value and the changes in the fair value recognised in
profit or loss.
We propose a novel method for inducing monolingual semantic hierarchies and sense clusters from numerous foreign-language-to-English bilingual dictionaries. The method exploits patterns of non-transitivity in translations across multiple languages. No complex or hierarchical structure is assumed or used in the input dictionaries: each is initially parsed into the “lowest common denominator” form, which is to say, a list of pairs of the form (foreign word, English word).
The scope of the Translational Medicine Ontology (TMO) is defined by the use case
terminology and respective data sources. Each term and corresponding data source
was analyzed for its conceptual, representational and reasoning capability as required
by the use case requirements. TMO terms were obtained from a lexical analysis of
sample research questions from 14 types of users, all of whom were involved in aspects
of research, clinical care and or business (Table 2). Terms were formalized as referring
to classes, relations or individuals in the OWL ontology.
CAN YOU SPARE 15 minutes a day for 30 days? If so, Junior Skill Builders:
Reading in 15 Minutes a Day can help you improve your reading comprehension
Just what is reading comprehension? Here’s a clue: Understanding is a
synonym for comprehension. So, as I’m sure you figured out, reading comprehension
means, “understanding what you read.” Not everyone does, you know.
The best rule on writing in any genre is that there are no rigid rules. All rules on writing can be, and have been, broken.
2. Even though the rules can be broken, you still need to have a good grasp on the basic conventions, elements, and structure that make a good book. This is true whether you're writing a short story, a long or short novel, or picture book.
3. To learn the rules before you break them, you need to do two things:
THIS is not a cookery book. It makes no attempt to replace a good one; it is rather an effort to fill up the gap between you and your household oracle, whether she be one of those exasperating old friends who maddened our mother with their vagueness, or the newer and better lights of our own generation, the latest and best of all being a lady as well known for her novels as for her works on domestic economy--one more proof, if proof were needed, of the truth I endeavor to set forth--if somewhat tediously forgive me--in this little...
As we all know, ceramic materials are inorganic, non-metallic, solid, and inert
materials. Things are made from them by the action of heat and subsequent cooling,
which may be crystalline or partly crystalline. The definition of ceramic is often
restricted to inorganic crystalline materials, as opposed to the noncrystalline glasses,
which involve several steps of the ceramic process, and their mechanical properties
behave similarly to ceramic materials.
Health care spending has exceeded economic growth in every recent decade.
Over the last four decades, the average growth in health spending has exceeded the
growth of the economy as a whole by between 1.1 and 3.0 percentage points (Figure
2). Since 1970, health care spending per capita has grown at an average annual rate
of 8.2% or 2.4 percentage points faster than nominal GDP. The persistence of this
trend suggests systematic differences between health care and other economic sectors
where growth rates are typically more in line with the overall economy. A smaller
After CFA made a random selection of the time frame from which credit files were to be
analyzed, a generic number was assigned to keep the nameless study data from each
study file separated from other study files. No copies or partial copies of any credit
reports, on paper or electronically, were removed from any credit reporting agency
location. Anonymous credit scores and an analysis of the credit data, as reviewed by
credit reporting agency personnel for security and industry knowledge, was supervised
and recorded by the CFA researcher for tabulation.
It would be possible to create a score for each respondent from the factor analysis, and this approach
is widely considered to be good practice when scoring complex data
. However, there is also a strong
argument for giving each component of financial knowledge equal weighting, as each has benefits for
individuals, and each has been identified as important by international experts.
Others are more avowedly ‘political’ or polemical in intent. The ‘artistic’
and the ‘political’ are far from separate categories, however. Formal
experiment and departure from dominant conventions is, potentially, a
major resource for the deconstruction of dominant ideologies.
Copyright laws are increasingly passed without democratic debate or scrutiny. In Great
Britain, where I live, Parliament recently passed the Digital Economy Act, a complex copy-
right law that allows corporate giants to disconnect whole families from the Internet if any-
one in the house is accused (without proof) of copyright infringement; it also creates a
“Great Firewall of Britain” that is used to censor any site that record companies and movie
studios don't like.
Until the early 1990’s latex production has been the main objective for
rubberwood cultivation in Thailand. In 1989 the Thai government established
a national natural forests logging ban. This law raised an immediate demand
for construction and furniture wood in Thailand. Previously, the rubberwood
trunks left over after the latex production, were either used as firewood at the
plantation site or in charcoal production. Rubberwood offers qualities to ease
off the demand for natural tropical forest trees and this way helps to decrease
the pressure on illegal logging.
Trigeneration. The combination of gas engines with absorption
chillers is an optimal solution for generating air conditioning and/or
refrigeration. The waste heat from the mixture intercooler, the engin
oil, the engine cooling water, and the exhaust gas serves as drive
energy for the chillers. Combining a cogeneration plant unit with an
absorption refrigeration system allows utilization of seasonal excess
heat for cooling.
The abuse of older people by family members dates
back to ancient times. Until the advent of initiatives
to address child abuse and domestic violence in the
last quarter of the 20th century, it remained a
private matter, hidden from public view. Initially
seen as a social welfare issue and subsequently a
problem of ageing, abuse of the elderly, like other
forms of family violence, has developed into a
public health and criminal justice concern.
Changes in technology and adversary behavior will invariably produce new threats that must be assessed by defense and homeland security planners, and a decision must be made about whether they merit changes in current defenses or the development of new defensive approaches. An example of such a novel threat is the
Marketing gets no respect in the nonprofit world.
Program people tend to hold the most senior positions
in nonprofits and accordingly have the most status.
Fundraisers are often viewed as necessary evils, as
are operations staff, including those who labor in the
communications and marketing departments.
Several factors account for the suspicion or disdain
with which many nonprofit managers view the marketing
function. Mostly, it’s a matter of ignorance.
