As part of a wider study to evaluate the effectiveness of Ofcom as a converged regulator, the National Audit Office commissioned RAND Europe to undertake comparative research on Ofcom in relation to communications regulators in other jurisdictions. This work began in February 2010 and was completed in July 2010. This report presents the findings of the research conducted on five case study areas as follows:
Chapter 18 - Reading and writing the qualitative research report. After reading this chapter, you should be able to: Select the story you want to tell, read through all of the data collected before you begin writing, decide whose voice will be the primary storyteller and select an appropriate writing style, identify the core ideas you want to present in the story, write a description about how the data were collected.
This Report aims to improve the lives of people living in Da Nang, through developing the tourist
sector and improving its links to the poor. The Report describes an innovat ive approach to tourist
development – a participatory pro-poor value chain analysis - that was supported by local
stakeholders and funded by the Vietnam Private Sector Support Programme. Thi s is probably the
first truly participatory tourism value chain exerci se ever conducted.
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
NSCLC Stages I and II
Surgery In patients with NSCLC stages IA, IB, IIA and IIB (Table 85-2) who can tolerate operation, the treatment of choice is pulmonary resection. If a complete resection is possible, the 5-year survival rate for N0 disease is about 60–80%, depending on the size of the tumor. The 5-year survival drops to about 50% when N1 (hilar node involvement) disease is present.
The extent of resection is a matter of surgical judgment based on findings at exploration.
With differing views on future developments,companies, especially largeinternationalcompanies, are positioning themselves to take advantage of emerging environmental trends. Among Japanese companies visited, the panel observed an acute interest in using the environmental advantages of their products and processes to enhance their com-petitive position in the market.
This volume, the first in a series, presents the findings of an ambitious
project—to measure the impact of fishing on the ecosystems
that make up the North Atlantic Ocean and to propose ways to mitigate
that impact. The project arose from a request by Dr. Joshua
Reichert, the Director of the Environment Program of the Pew
Charitable Trusts, Philadelphia, to answer six specific questions
about the North Atlantic:
• What are the total fisheries catches from the ecosystems, including
reported and unreported landings and discards at sea?...

Prospect of the early grafting techique on hevea rubber propagation helps you know early grafting technique can become a alternative method in order to produce clonal planting material of Hevea rubber; production process of eraly grafting technique can be corried out in shorter time and lower cost than conventional budding technique, there were some constraints to implement the ecnique (retardation of initial growth, leaf and stem diseases) that must be finded their solution.
Detecting conﬂicting statements is a foundational text understanding task with applications in information analysis. We propose an appropriate deﬁnition of contradiction for NLP tasks and develop available corpora, from which we construct a typology of contradictions. We demonstrate that a system for contradiction needs to make more ﬁne-grained distinctions than the common systems for entailment. In particular, we argue for the centrality of event coreference and therefore incorporate such a component based on topicality.

Chapter 5, Drug labels, package inserts, and references, teaches students how to find a wide range of information common to all drug labels and package inserts, then specifi cally how to fi nd information about oral and parenteral medications and medications administered by other routes.
Chapter 10 - Descriptive statistics. After reading this chapter, you should be able to: Select existing or design appropriate questionnaire items and response sets, use open and closed questions appropriately, pretest the method of data collection, collect the data in an honest and ethical manner, analyze the data completely and appropriately, draw conclusions that do not overstate the limitations of your data or sample, present the data to others in an appropriate fashion,...
Lecture Research methods - Chapter 4 presents the following content: Purpose of the research design, design strategies, multiple methods choices - combining qualitative and quantitative techniques and procedures, time horizons, credibility of research findings, ethics of research design, selecting samples - probability and non-probability techniques.
No science stands alone. If research done, findings found, conclusions drawn are not presented to the world then it is arguable whether they are of any real use at all. The reason for the research paper is to present the findings to the world, to share the information learned for others to do with it what they will. Why the research was originally conducted is of interest, but the researcher’s intentions, goals and conclusions are not the end.
Data Analysis and Presentation Skills: An Introduction for the Life and Medical Sciences is an invaluable text allowing students to develop appropriate key skills when designing experiments, generating results, analysing data and ultimately presenting findings to academics and referees. Taking a hands-on approach, each of these key areas is introduced clearly and carefully, showing how to access and evaluate information using a variety of resources.
Basic analytical theory is gradually introduced alongside practical applications to enhance student understanding.
Score gains in the Writing component of the Test have been the main focus of much of this research.
Green (2004) presents the findings of four studies, all of which involved candidates whose average
initial score was 5.0 and who were undertaking periods of English language instruction of not more
than three months. Average score gains in these four studies were less than half a band. In these
studies, the candidates who achieved a score of 5.0 or below on the first test tended to improve on the
second, while those achieving a score of 7.0 tended to receive a...
