The historic character of the landscape shouldtherefore be considered alongside other aspects ofcharacter and visual and aesthetic issues when framingplanning policies or determining individual applications,and landscape capacity and sensitivity analyses shouldalways include the historic dimension.Where localauthorities have completed an appraisal of this historic dimension of the landscape as part of theEnglish Heritage-sponsored Historic LandscapeCharacterisation programme,this appraisal should be incorporated in the overall assessment of landscape impact.
MEASUREMENT AND CONTROL INSTRUMENTATION ERROR ANALYSIS
Systems engineering considerations increasingly require that real-time I/O systems fully achieve necessary data accuracy without overdesign and its associated costs. In pursuit of those goals, this chapter assembles the error models derived in previous chapters for computer interfacing system functions into a unified instrumentation analysis suite, including the capability for evaluating alternate designs in overall system optimization.
The purpose of this book is to use sabermetric methods to appraise the overall performance
and particular tendencies of baseball’s field generals—its managers. Although this is not
the first sabermetric study of managers to be done, it is a bit different from much of what has
come before it. Most other attempts to quantify managerial performances focused on the ingame
decisions made. Individuals much smarter than myself have looked at very specific decisions
managers make—such as sacrifice bunting, issuing intentional walks, attempting to
Overall, the evidence appraised suggested that monotherapy with metformin produced
significantly greater improvements in glycaemic control (i.e. HbA1c and FPG/fasting blood
glucose (FBG)) when it was compared with placebo, diet and sulfonylureas. Head-to-head
comparisons with other antidiabetic agents (i.e. alpha-glucosidase inhibitors, thiazolidinediones,
meglitinides and insulin) and extended-release formulations of metformin, failed to show more
benefit for glycaemic control than standard monotherapy with metformin.
