Climate change is a phenomenon by which the long-term averages of weather events (i.e. temperature, precipitation, wind speed, etc.) that define the climate of a region are not constant but change over time. There have been a series of past periods of climatic change, registered in historical or paleoecological records.

Proposed new sections 10A to 10D and 28(1)(aaa) of the Act relate to the ethics committee’ s functions in dealing with storage issues.

  • We are living through a period of striking, gender-related social change in the West as traditional distinctions between the experiences of women and men are breaking down and being reconfigured in new, more complex ways. This has significant, but as yet largely unexplored, implications for health and illness. The long-established life expectancy gap between men and women appears to be closing in many affluent societies as men begin to ‘catch up’ with women.

In religion, politics, literature, and commerce, in the habits of daily living, in the world of ideas, his lifetime witnessed continual change and movement. When Elizabeth came to the throne, six years before he was born, England was still largely Catholic, as it had been for nine centuries; when she died England was Protestant, and by the date of Shakespeare's death it was well on the way to becoming Puritan. The Protestant Reformation had worked nearly its full course of revolution in ideas, habits, and beliefs.

  • ECE is a critical part of California’s infrastructure for economic development. Like the system of highways and roads and public transportation, parents need the infrastructure of reliable, affordable child care in order to productively participate in the workforce. It is important to maintain the ECE system even during periods of recession and high unemployment. If the system atrophies during times of economic contraction, a child care shortage during recovery impedes the workforce mobilization and productivity of many parents and hinders new economic growth.

  • In this paper we introduce the novel task of “word epoch disambiguation,” defined as the problem of identifying changes in word usage over time. Through experiments run using word usage examples collected from three major periods of time (1800, 1900, 2000), we show that the task is feasible, and significant differences can be observed between occurrences of words in different periods of time.

  • One of the central issues in robotics and animal motor control is the problem of trajectory generation and modulation. Since in many cases trajectories have to be modified on-line when goals are changed, obstacles are encountered, or when external perturbations occur, the notions of trajectory generation and trajectory modulation are tightly coupled.

This innovation has included amazing advances in financial theory, computational capability, new product design, new trading processes, new markets, and new applications. In fact, each of these innovations has supported and reinforced the others.

  • The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines telemarketing as the marketing of goods or services by telephone. It’s a word that was added to the dictionary back in 1980, when it became obvious that the telephone was changing the way companies did business. In general, people are busy. They don’t want to be both- ered by others trying to sell them products or services that aren’t needed. A successful telemarketer can quickly capture the attention of the person he or she is calling and prove to that person that what you’re offering could be beneficial.

  • Propofol is very lipid soluble, has a large volume of distribution, and can be given for prolonged periods of time without significant changes in its pharmacokinetic profile. Because propofol has no active metabolites, the termination of its clinical effect is dependent solely on redistribution to peripheral fat tissue stores. When the infusion is discontinued, the fat tissue stores redistribute.

  • Climate change is a long-term shift in the statistics of the weather (including its averages). For example, it could show up as a change in climate normalcy (expected average values for temperature and precipitation) for a given place and time of year, from one decade to the next. We know that the global climate is currently changing. The last decade of the 20th Century and the beginning of the 21st have been the warmest periods in the entire global instrumental temperature record, starting in the mid-19th century.
