The cordial co-operation of many amateur and professional astronomers
in the very successful observations of the Solar Eclipse of January 1, 1889, has again brought
forward the desirability of organizing an Astronomical Society of the Pacific, in order
that this pleasant and close association may not be lost, either as a scientific or as a social
force. You are respectfully invited to become a member of this organization, and to do your
part towards making it useful in our community.

The Charity Commission is the independent regulator of charities in England and Wales. Its aim is to provide the best
possible regulation of charities in England and Wales in order to increase charities’ effectiveness and public confidence
and trust. Most charities must register with the Commission, although some special types of charity do not have to
register. There are some 180,000 registered charities in England and Wales. In Scotland the framework is different,
and the Commission does not regulate Scottish charities.
A. Shahrjerdi and F. Mustapha co-authored the fourth chapter, which discusses
second-order shear deformation theory applied to a plate with simply supported
boundary conditions. The material properties of the plate are graded in the thickness
direction by a power law distribution and the equations of motion are derived via the
energy method and then solved by applying Navier's method. It is interesting to note
that the authors demonstrate that the results of the second-order theory are very close
to those reported in the literature using a third-order theory....
“A brand is a product from a known source (organization). The name of the organization can also serve as a
brand. The brand value reﬂects how a product’s name, or company name, is perceived by the marketplace,
whether that is a target audience for a product or the marketplace in general (clearly these can have differ-
ent meanings and therefore different values). It is important to understand the meaning and the value of the
brand (for each target audience) in order to develop an effective marketing mix, for each target audience.”
The Art of Public Speaking The foregoing order of pitch−change might be reversed with equally good effect, though with a slight change in seriousness−−either method produces emphasis when used intelligently, that is, with a common−sense appreciation of the sort of emphasis to be attained. In attempting these contrasts of pitch it is important to avoid unpleasant extremes. Most speakers pitch their voices too high. One of the secrets of Mr. Bryan's eloquence is his low, bell−like voice.
Listening comprehension is difficult for foreign language learners because it is a
continuous process that requires learners to understand messages while listening to
them and sometimes can lead to a heavy cognitive load. In order to minimise listening
barriers, various media presentation modes and ubiquitous learning activities should
be implemented for teaching and learning because they are convenient and can
enhance students’ learning motivation and learning performance (Liu & Chu, ...
Patterns of particle emission are different from those of the other pollutants included in the first phase of
the EU Framework Directive because of their extreme diversity of origin and source, both primary and
secondary, natural and anthropogenic, and there are significant differences in levels between Member
States and regions within states.
The limited amount of reliable PM10 data makes it difficult to establish a comprehensive overview of
PM10 concentrations and trends in Member States.
this report showcases smart marketing strategies from clean energy programs and solar
marketers from across the country that address how to overcome the barriers faced by
solar technology markets and serves as a guide for states in pursuing their own market
While there has been a major increase in solar photovoltaic (pV) installations in recent
years, the total amount of solar power installed nonetheless represents less than 0.1% of
u.s. energy production.
Due to the growing importance of forest goods and services an increasing amount of information is
being collected on the ecological and also on the socio-economic value of goods and services
provided by forests. However, much of this information is collected and presented at incompatible
scales or it has been classified differently. In order to make comparative ecological or economic
analysis possible, standardized frameworks for assessing the importance of forest goods and services
The objective of this study is to assist public authorities to identify and address the future challenges of urban water supply, sanitation, and flood management in cities. In order to do that, this report uses the conceptual framework of Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) as a holistic set of planning and management tools incorporating all components of the urban water cycle to help develop efficient and flexible urban water systems in the future. The future of water in African cities: why waste water? argues that a new approach to urban water management is needed in Africa.
The special handling of troubled assets is not uncommon in the day-to-day activities
of the banking world. For example, non-performing corporate loans are typically
transferred to a work-out department.
In the case of large loan amounts, the individual
lenders form creditor pools in order to prevent coordination failures and a sudden
withdrawal of lenders that can force a financially distressed firm into bankruptcy.

In May 2010, the World Health Assembly (WHA), through
resolution WHA63.14, endorsed a set of recommendations
on the marketing of foods and non-alcoholic beverages to
children. The main purpose of the recommendations was to
guide efforts by Member States in designing new policies,
or strengthening existing policies, on food marketing
communications to children in order to reduce the impact
of marketing foods high in saturated fats, trans-fatty acids,
free sugars, or salt. Resolution WHA63.
As an artist, educator and gallery director, I’ve spent many hours looking at
and thinking about art and art making. Often I’m looking for inspiration for
my own work or for a curatorial idea I have brewing. Many times I’ve sent stu-
dents to look someone up, so they can better understand the artist’s ideas and
techniques in order to better inform their own work.
This book is a great tool for exactly that process. From beginning to end it
contains details about the making process.
