This book is written primarily for the learner who is new to the subject of
geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T). The primary purpose of this
book is to teach the graphic language of GD&T in a way that the learner can
understand and use it in practical applications. It is intended as a textbook
to be used in colleges and universities and as a training manual for corporate
training programs that teach engineering, design, drafting, manufacturing, and
quality professionals. This book is also appropriate for a self-study course....
Primary School Curriculum Science Social, Environmental and Scientific Education (SESE) provides opportunities for the child to explore, investigate and develop an understanding of the natural, human, social and cultural dimensions of local and wider environments; to learn and practise a wide range of skills; and to acquire open, critical and responsible attitudes. SESE enables the child to live as an informed and caring member of local, national, European and global communities.
This book is about broadening your defi nition of what constitutes
effective leadership. As we interviewed senior executives
and listened to their reactions to the lessons in the book, we
frequently heard, “I wish I’d heard these earlier in my career.” We
hope that this book can accelerate your leadership development
by removing some of the serendipity that is often required to
learn important life lessons.
Some terms, which will be repeated throughout this book, shall be deﬁned more precisely: . . . . ‘‘Portable batteries’’ are understood to be all kinds of electrochemical energy-storing devices used in portable appliances regardless of whether they are rechargeable or not. Non-rechargeable batteries are called primary cells (batteries) or dry cells (batteries). Rechargeable batteries are called secondary batteries or accumulators. Also the terms ‘‘galvanic primary’’ and ‘‘galvanic secondary’’ cells are common. ...
Incorporating relevant theoretical and empirical findings, this paper aims to identify and conceptualize the
primary dimensions which influence the consumers‘ individual perception of luxury as a first step leading towards
a scale to measure luxury value cross-culturally. According to Hassan and Katsanis (1994) and Tse et al. (1988),

specific to that specialty. This is also true in obstetrics and gynecology.
However, several characteristics set the specialty of Ob/Gyn apart from
all others. Not only can nearly all of the emergencies seen in other specialties
be seen in the field of Ob/Gyn, but pregnancy also brings a new and unique
dimension to emergency situations in our specialty.
Dry andwet etching techniques based onsiliconand other semiconductor technologies
are well known. For many metals, etching is a relatively cheap and well-established
technique to obtain freeform structures with dimensions in the submillimeter range.
This technique iswelldescribedinthe literature[1–5,7].Aphotosensitivepolymermask
