  • Safety/Reliability engineering did not develop as a unified discipline, but grew out of the integration of a number of activities, previously the province of various branches of engineering. Since no human activity can enjoy zero risk, and no equipment has a zero rate of failure, there has emerged a safety technology for optimizing risk. This attempts to balance the risk of a given activity against its benefits and seeks to assess the need for further risk reduction depending upon the cost.

  • Task-solving in dialogue depends on the linguistic alignment of the interlocutors, which Pickering & Garrod (2004) have suggested to be based on mechanistic repetition effects. In this paper, we seek confirmation of this hypothesis by looking at repetition in corpora, and whether repetition is correlated with task success. We show that the relevant repetition tendency is based on slow adaptation rather than short-term priming and demonstrate that lexical and syntactic repetition is a reliable predictor of task success given the first five minutes of a taskoriented dialogue. ...

  • East and Southern Europe), India, parts of South America, Southwest U.S./northern Mexico and Australia. The operating characteristics of STPPs are relatively well matched with the intermediate and peak electricity load requirements in these regions. Two types of collectors have been used in STPPs: parabolic trough and central receiver. Electricity is generated by incorporating the solar collectors with a Rankine cycle power plant or as an add-on to a natural gas combined cycle (referred to as an ISCCS).

  • Nowadays, embedded systems have permeated various aspects of industry. Therefore, we can hardly discuss our life or society from now on without referring to embedded systems. For wide-ranging embedded systems to continue their growth, a number of high-quality fundamental and applied researches are indispensable. This book addresses a wide spectrum of research topics on embedded systems, including basic researches, theoretical studies, and practical work. The book consists of nineteen chapters.

  • The value of the share depends on how well its property rights are enforced. The enforcement of property rights is usually undertaken by both individual owners and the state. In economies where the state does not effectively enforce property rights, the enforcement by individual owners plays a relatively more important role. The structure of share ownership affects the degree to which corporate contracts are enforced, because it affects the owners’ abilities and incentives to enforce the property rights delineated by the contracts.

  • To determine the reliability of applying these categories to specific song lyrics, two observers independently classified the reproductive themes present in written versions of the reproductively relevant phrases extracted from a representative sample of the Pop, Country, and R&B songs. The number of phrases containing reproductive messages ranged from 2 (“White Horse” and “Second Chance”) to 29 (“Baby By Me”) for a total of 219 reproductive phrases, with an average of 8.76 different reproductive references per song.

  • For small join tables, REED always chooses to push them into the network if their selectivity is smaller than one. For intermediate tables, the REED query optimizer makes a decision as to whether to push the join into the network based on the estimated selectivity of the predicate (which may be learned from past performance or gathered statistics, or estimated using basic query optimization tech- niques [28]) and the average depth of sensor nodes in the network.

  • This is the first of two reports that address the complex issue of incorporating the needs of climate research into the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS). NPOESS, which has been driven by the imperative of reliably providing short-term weather information, is itself a union of heretofore separate civilian and military programs. It is a marriage of convenience to eliminate needless duplication and reduce cost, one that appears to be working.

  • Ongoing monitoring and good data are the cornerstones of effective efforts to improve water quality. Addressing water quality challenges will mean building capacity and expertise in developing countries and deploying real-time, low-cost, rapid, and reliable field sampling tools, technologies, and data-sharing and management institutions. Resources are needed to build national and regional capacity to collect, manage, and analyze water quality data.

  • The wind itself owns variations and indeterminists governed by global circulations, regional climates, and local topographies and so on. Customarily, extreme wind speeds are preferably defined in term of probability which is interested for engineering today. Thus, the well wind records, identified wind mechanisms, and suitable methods of extreme value analysis and so on, are always required to predict reliable design wind speeds that would be used for structural design. For the past three decades, there have been many valuable studies in developing basic design wind speed map. ...

  • Thus, despite the value of these clinical methods, such techniques often result in inconsistent diagnoses, as well as an inability to reliably predict a patient´s response to treatment (Offenbacher et al. 2007). A reason for the limited success in predicting the future course of disease in some individuals is that the clinical phenotype does not reflect the underlying biologic processes that occur at the biofilm-gingival interface (Offenbacher et al. 2007).

  • Industrial robots are currently employed in a large number of applications and are available with a wide range of configurations, drive systems, physical sizes and payloads. However, the numbers in service throughout the world are much less than predicted over twenty years ago (Engelberger 1980). This is despite major technological advances in related areas of computing and electronics, and the availability of fast, reliable and low-cost microprocessors and memory. This situation is mainly a result of historical and economic circumstances, rather than technical considerations.

  • 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....

  • Journalists are highly dependent upon individuals and organizations (including government officials, agencies and nongovernmental organizations) for a steady and reliable flow of newsworthy information. This flow of information makes news production more predictable, efficient and profitable. When this flow is blocked (for example, when traditional news sources are unavailable for comment or do not respond within the journalist’s deadline), journalists are more likely to seek other sources, which may be less authoritative, accurate, responsible or reliable....
