  • We address the problem of translating from morphologically poor to morphologically rich languages by adding per-word linguistic information to the source language. We use the syntax of the source sentence to extract information for noun cases and verb persons and annotate the corresponding words accordingly. In experiments, we show improved performance for translating from English into Greek and Czech. For English–Greek, we reduce the error on the verb conjugation from 19% to 5.4% and noun case agreement from 9% to 6%. ...

  • One morning, long ago, John woke up and decided he wanted to write a book on theories and techniques in counseling and psychotherapy. He thought, “Of all the classes I teach, I love teaching theories and techniques best, so I should write a textbook.” John then began using a cognitive self-instructional problem-solving strategy (see Chapter 8). He identified the problems associated with existing theories and techniques textbooks and formulated possible solutions.

  • Who doesn’t want to be rich . . . or at least more financially secure than they are now? As Gertrude Stein once famously said, “I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor. It’s better to be rich.” And so have I. From dead broke to worse. And then from okay to affluent to more-than-enough.

  • The IDB’s measures of the impact of the funds and the outstanding is- sues and conclusions from the IDB study are summarized here. Despite the large amount of resources that the IDB and the World Bank have been lending to the funds, their scope is small. Only one fund in the region, Nicaragua, spends as much as 1 percent of the gross domes- tic product (GDP) in its fund; only three countries—Chile, Panama, and Uruguay—spend more than US$15 per year per poor person. And the poor countries on average spend less than US$10 a year.

  • Neighborhood features may be protective or harmful for health of persons once in old age. Given the rapidly aging population, and the potential economic and social benefits of having older persons age in place, understanding the effects of neighborhoods on the health of the elderly is important for the formulation of public policy. In this paper, we provide an overview of what is known about neighborhoods and health in late life and discuss the potential and challenges of using national survey data to study this topic.

  • In their classic account, Tim Dyson and Mick Moore linked women's autonomy to demographic regimes in south Asia. As they describe the north Indian demographic regime, it involves relatively high levels of fertility and infant mortality, relatively early age at marriage (which is almost universal in north India), and relatively large gender gaps in health indicators.

  • We are in trouble. The health of our country is being compromised due to a lifestyle of overeating and sedentary habits. Never before in our history has the health of so many individuals been put at risk due to the lethal combination of an inactive lifestyle and poor nutrition. It is now apparent that for the first time in U.S. history, our children will lead a shorter, lower quality of life than their parents. The reason? We now live in what health practitioners call an “obesity epidemic.

  • Search engines were invented to break down web sites’ barriers, letting users query the whole Web rather than multiple sites separately. However, as search engines cannot access to the struc- tured databases within web sites, they can only offer unstructured, text-based search. So while each site (e.g., epicurious.com) can offer sophisticated structured browsing and searching experi- ence, that experience ends at the boundary of the site, beyond which the structures of the data within that site is lost.

  • Skin and Soft Tissue Infections S. aureus causes a variety of cutaneous infections. Common predisposing factors include skin disease, skin damage (e.g., insect bites, minor trauma), injections (e.g., in diabetes, injection drug use), and poor personal hygiene. These infections are characterized by the formation of pus-containing blisters, which often begin in hair follicles and spread to adjoining tissues. Folliculitis is a superficial infection that involves the hair follicle, with a central area of purulence (pus) surrounded by induration and erythema.

  • Literature concerning the 1995 Chicago heat wave (Semenza et al. 1995) demonstrates the devastating toll physical stress took on the elderly living alone and forgotten in sweltering apartments who were afraid to open their windows, and were too poor to have fans or obtain the needed food and water for survival. Some public health department and other government agencies are working together to go door-to-door to find these hidden residents, help them prepare, and to be able to reach them if needed during a disaster.

  • Each of these conditions will result in lower than normal operating pressures. When there is a shortage of refrigerant, pressures will be lower than normal. However, the reduction in pressure may be so slight as not to be readily detected, other than by a loss of evaporating capacity and the longer running time of the unit. If the shortage is considerable, both suction and discharge pressures will be very low; if the system temperature control consists of a thermostat only, the unit will run continuously with poor refrigerating effect.

  • Out of the sunshine and shadows of sixty-eight years come these personal recollections of California--of the period when American civilization first crossed its mountain heights and entered its overland gateways. I seem to hear the tread of many feet, the lowing of many herds, and know they are the re-echoing sounds of the sturdy pioneer home-seekers. Travel-stained and weary, yet triumphant and happy, most of them reach their various destinations, and their trying experiences and valorous deeds are quietly interwoven with the general history of the State....

  • Part II of this book focuses on financial markets, markets in which funds are trans- ferred from people who have an excess of available funds to people who have a short- age. Financial markets such as bond and stock markets are crucial to promoting greater economic efficiency by channeling funds from people who do not have a pro- ductive use for them to those who do. Indeed, well-functioning financial markets are a key factor in producing high economic growth, and poorly performing financial markets are one reason that many countries in the world remain desperately poor.

  • Reliability engineering and predictive maintenance have two major objectives: preventing catastrophic failures of critical plant production systems and avoiding deviations from acceptable performance levels that result in personal injury, environmental impact, capacity loss, or poor product quality. Unfortunately, these events will occur no matter how effective the reliability program. Therefore, a viable program also must include a process for fully understanding and correcting the root causes that lead to events having an impact on plant performance....
