  • Thus, rather than merely being an exercise of redactive skills, writing enhances one’s ability to ‘see’ by enabling the writer to abstract and objectify his/her understandings from his/her concrete involvements (Ong, 1982).

  • The ultrasonic transducer behaves as a ‘speaker’ in send mode (from 40 to 50 kHz). The electronics of the ultrasonic transducer produces electrical pulses to set the piezoceramic element in motion (conversion of electrical energy to mechanical energy). The piezoceramic element is located on the inside of the outer diaphragm. The outer diaphragm vibrates in line with the resonance frequency and produces ultrasonic waves. The short pulse sequences hit an obstacle and are bounced back (reflected).

  • To effectively perform data mining, however, we cannot naively consider all candidate instantiations, since the number of such instantiations is exponential in the number of variables. We provide algorithms and heuristics that ex- ploit the granularity system and the given constraints to reduce the hypothesis space for the pattern matching task. The global approach offers an effective procedure to dis- cover patterns of events that occur frequently in a sequence satisfying specific temporal relationships.

  • The ball head is the component that responds to speed changes of the unit. There are various designs of ball heads, but generally, they consist of two flyweights attached to arms that pivot near the axis of rotation. The arms are attached to a collar on a shaft. As the ball head rotational speed increases, the flyballs move out because of centrifugal force pushing a rod down. The rod, usually termed the speeder rod, acts on the pilot valve to route oil to the main valve and the servomotors. On a Pelton governor, the flyweights are...

This is illustrated by the vulnerability of immune-compromised individuals to develop tuberculosis and by the age-related spectrum of disease witnessed in immune-competent children. This age-related spectrum of disease reflects the ontogeny of the host immune response towards M. tuberculosis.

  • This facet of "social responsibility" doctrine is brought into sharp relief when the doctrine is used to justify wage restraint by trade unions. The conflict of interest is naked and clear when union officials are asked to subordinate the interest of their members to some more general purpose.

We thus have the ironic phenomenon that union leaders--at least in the U.S.
