The programme comprises a feed data library and various ‘Nutrition masters’. To create the
feed data library, a wide range of feed ingredients including green and dry fodders, tree leaves,
grains, oil cakes, agro-industrial by-products etc. were collected from different agro-ecological
zones of the country and analyzed for chemical composition and nutritive value.
Therapeutic Patient Education (TPE) enables people with chronic diseases to
manage their illness and yields benefits in both health and financial terms. Many
health care providers, however, lack the skills to provide their patients with such an
education. The Regional Office therefore convened a working group to prepare a
document specifying the content of programmes for teaching health care providers
to provide TPE. The Working Group comprised doctors, nurses, other health care
providers and educators from countries throughout the European Region.
There are a couple of reasons why SQL Server, the system that comprises
Database Engine, Analysis Services, Reporting Services and Integration
Services is the best choice for a broad spectrum of end users and database
programmers building business applications:
c SQL Server is certainly the best system for Windows operating systems, because
of its tight integration (and low pricing). Because the number of installed
Windows systems is enormous and still increasing rapidly, SQL Server is a widely
Serial communications is sufficiently complex that special chips have been designed to do the work of
forming and timing the strings of bits that comprise serial data. Such a chip is called a universal
asynchronous receiver transmitter or UART. Without UARTs, communications programming would
be very complicated. The IBM family of microcomputers use the Intel 8250 UART.
The Intel 8250 is a programmable Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter packaged in a 40-
pin integrated circuit.
The World Health Organization and the United Nations Population Fund in collaboration with the
Key Centre for Women’s Health in Society, in the School of Population Health at the University of
Melbourne, Australia are pleased to present this joint publication of available evidence on the intricate
relationship between women’s mental and reproductive health. The review comprises the most recent
information on the ways in which mental health concerns intersect with women’s reproductive health.
The OpenGL graphics system is a software interface to graphics hardware. (“GL” stands for “Graphics Library.”) It allows you to create interactive programs that produce color images of moving, threedimensional objects. With OpenGL, you can control computer-graphics technology to produce realistic pictures, or ones that depart from reality in imaginative ways.
The Artificial Insemination Database Application for Asia (AIDA Asia) was
developed by FAO/IAEA in Microsoft Access 2000® and Visual Basic for Applications
. The computer application contains 6 files to record, analyse and report data on farms,
females inseminated, semen, oestrus characteristics, inseminators and pregnancy diagnosis.
Fourteen bulls comprising 7 zebus and 7 crossbreds (50% zebu and 50% Friesian) that
were used in the national AI programme were selected to determine their fertility.
.The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and the Africa Rice Center (WARDA, the acronym for West Africa Rice Development Association) are two of fifteen Future Harvest research centers funded by the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). The CGIAR is cosponsored by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (World Bank), the United Nations Development Programme, and the United Nations Environment Programme.
In the project and programme management community opinion is divided on the role of PMOs in
delivering programmes and whether they confer real benefits. The UK Office of Government
Commerce (OGC) views a PMO as an important part of programme and project management
organisation structures, and in its P3O model
promotes a three-level structure comprising a
portfolio management office, a programme management office and a project management office.
The Armagh Observatory is the oldest scientic institution in Northern Ireland, the longest continuously
operating astronomical research institute in the UK and Ireland. There is a
uctuating population of
approximately 30 academic sta, which at the end of 2011 comprised 6 Research Astronomers and 24
other academic sta (including the director, several PDRAs and around a dozen PhD students) as well
as several academic visitors, 2 core research and 4.5 core grounds and administrative support sta.
A rough assessment of the importance of engineering activities that are not covered by
R&D expenditure, as collected by the OECD, can be derived from Figure 6.1.
Among the services supplied to clients there are two groups: technical counselling and the
development of software. These tasks are not classified as R&D. However, they
contribute to product innovation and comprise activities in the case of counselling
necessary to initiate engineering based on the final specifications of a client’s
An overview of the NEWSKY project (“NEtWorking the SKY”) is given. This project is co-funded by the European Commission within the 6th Framework Programme and has started in February 2007. The main goal of the NEWSKY project is to show that the integration of different communications systems and different applications into a global, heterogeneous network for aeronautical communications is feasible and how this integration can be achieved.
