  • Most units will be appropriate for use with all teachers in primary, special and secondary schools where their subjects will support the application and reinforcement of the skills that are the unit’s focus. The document might well be used, for example, if a school’s self-evaluation process has indicated that the standard of learners’ writing is a problem either in English, Welsh or in subjects across the curriculum.

  • Second, explicitly analyzing fees allows us to determine whether investors in SRI funds pay an explicit price for the ethical value of their investments. Our results also shed light on the way in which mutual fund fees are determined, particularly on the question of whether fees simply reflect funds' operating costs or, as argued by Christofersen and Musto (2002) and Gil-Bazo and Ruiz-Verdú (2009), they are set taking into account the performance sensitivity of funds' clienteles.

  • In addition, Thai mutual funds play an important role in the capital market and Thailand’s economy is among the three fastest growing in the Asia/Pacific region. The data on mutual funds and the stock market, as well as other relevant information from Thailand, are sufficiently accessible and more complete than from many other emerging countries and thus allow us to make more comprehensive investigations of mutual funds in emerging markets.

  • A common approach to adjusting for seasonal and long-term trends is to use semiparametric models which incorporate a smooth function of time. The use of nonparametric smoothing in time series models of air pollution and health was suggested in Schwartz (1994a), where generalized additive Poisson models were used with LOESS smooths of time, temperature, dewpoint temperature and PM10. This approach can be thought of as regressing residuals from the smoothed dependent variable on residuals from the smoothed regressors.

  • This guidance applies to all companies to which the Code applies – i.e. UK listed companies. For groups, it will usually be necessary for the audit committee of the parent company to review issues that relate to particular subsidiaries or activities carried on by the group. Consequently, the board of a UK-listed parent company should ensure that there is adequate cooperation within the group (and with internal and external auditors of individual companies within the group) to enable the parent company audit committee to discharge its responsibilities effectively....

  • Thus, an overwhelming majority of the funds garnered from the urban non-retail segment are short-term investments. Further, this is not a short-term trend as it has been noticed over a period of a few years. Therefore, if the industry wants to change the age profile of the funds it has at its disposal, it needs to seriously look at the other investors i.e. retail investors and high net-worth individuals (HNIs) in the urban and semi-urban areas. This will also help fulfil the objectives of financial inclusion.

  • When conditions within a country or sector do not yet allow other approaches to be used. As has been noted in the section on the Sector Programme approach and Budgetary Aid, certain conditions need to be met before either of these two approaches/tools can be effectively used. In the meantime, projects will continue to be an aid delivery option as long as they can demonstrate that they support the delivery of sustainable benefits and do not impact negatively on local institutional capacity.

  • When estimating duration, define an initial requirement for resources. For the project schedule, it is sufficient to estimate the number of each type of resource required, rather than specific people, e.g., 2 Programmers. Concentrate on identifying the resource types who will either be part of the project team or who will have a significant impact on the project. Document the initial resource requirements, since if these assumptions are invalid (e.g., Step 020, duration 30 days, resource requirement 2 Programmers) then the step estimates will need to be revised.

  • More than 93 percent of car thefts occur in metropolitan areas where motor vehicle theft remains a pervasive problem. Western states, in particular, experience high rates of motor vehicle theft, while nationally a car or truck was stolen every 28.8 seconds in 2007. The FBI Uniform Crime Reports released in September 2008 estimate 1.1 million motor vehicle thefts in 2007, with an estimated value of $7.4 billion.

  • In this paper we propose the design of Byzantium, a Byzantine-fault-tolerant database replication middle- ware. Byzantium improves on existing BFT replication for databases both because it has no centralized compo- nents (of whose correctness the integrity of the system depends) and by allowing increased concurrency, which is essential to achieve good performance. The main insight behind our approach is to aim for weaker semantics than traditional BFT replication approaches.

  • Stains caused by dental materials are not uncommon (Figure 7-6).Among the discolorants found in dental materials, metallic ions are considered to be the most difficult to bleach.The metallic corrosion products may lead to a dark gray or black appearance that will be visible through the remaining tooth structure, including the root structure (Figures 7-12 and 7-13).The severity of discoloration and the success of bleaching depend upon the amount of metallic ions penetrating the dentinal tubules.

  • There are a few terms specific to mobile robots that must be defined to avoid confusion. First, the term robot itself has unfortunately come to have at least three different meanings. In this book, the word robot means an autonomous or semi-autonomous mobile land vehicle that may or may not have a manipulator or other device for affecting its environ- ment. Colin Angle, CEO of iRobot Corp. defines a robot as a mobile thing with sensors that looks at those sensors and decides on its own what actions to take....

  • Setting Equation (6) equal to zero and solving for P also provides the level of population at the turning point as referred to above. Our results therefore clearly suggest that the marginal impact of population on sulfur dioxide emissions is an increasing function of the level of population i.e., the greater the level of population, the greater the envi- ronmental impact of each additional unit of population. As a next step, column III reports results from the model that examines the role played by the age structure of the population.

  • At the heart of Greenplum Database is the Parallel Dataflow Engine. This is where the real work of processing and analyzing data is done. The Parallel Dataflow Engine is an optimized parallel processing infrastructure that is designed to process data as it flows from disk, from external files or applications, or from other segments over the gNet interconnect (Figure 9). The engine is inherently parallel—it spans all segments of a Greenplum cluster and can scale effectively to thousands of commodity processing cores.

  • So far we have discussed only the truth sets assigned to compound statements involving ∨, ∧, and ¬. All the other connectives can be defined in terms of these three basic ones, so that we can deduce what truth sets should be assigned to them. For example, we know that p → q is equivalent to ¬p ∨ q (see Figure ??). Hence the truth set of p → q is the same as the truth set of ¬p∨q, that is, it is ˜ P∪Q. The Venn diagram for p → q is shown in Figure 2.7, where the shaded area is the truth set for the...

  • Public service broadcasters are mandated to “reach a maximum number of viewers and listeners with a range of programmes which excite and satisfy the interest of viewers and audiences” (VRT 2010). Both Flemish and French-language broadcasters must produce relevant national programming designed for intended audiences.

  • Some types of PPE are simply not appropriate for use in certain situations. For instance, let's say you have maintenance employees working in a shop area where they have been assigned to wear ANSI-approved safety glasses with side shields for protection against flying particles generated at various grinding machines. One of these employees is called away to work in a treating area where dip tanks are located. Assigned PPE in the treating area consists of chemical-protective splash goggles.
