Hydrogen peroxide is a strong oxidant that can be injected into a contaminated
zone to destroy petroleum contaminants. When injected to groundwater,
hydrogen peroxide is unstable, and reacts with organic contaminants and
subsurface materials. It decomposes to oxygen and water within hours of its
introduction into groundwater generating heat in the process. Peroxide is typically
shipped to a remediation site in liquid form at dose concentrations ranging from
five percent to 50 percent by weight.
Dynamicity of participants: Some P2P systems, such as , assume a ﬁxed set of nodes in the system. However,
one of the greatest potential strengths of P2P systems is when they eschew reliance on dedicated infrastructure and
allow peers to leave the system at will. Even under these conditions, participants typically have broadly varying
availability characteristics. Some peers are akin to servers: their membership in the system stays largely static. Others
have much more dynamic membership, joining and leaving the system at will.
Graphic design is a creative process that combines art and technology to communicate ideas in print and electronic
media. Graphic design often refers to both the process (designing) by which the visual communication is created
and the products (designs) which are generated. Common uses of graphic design include identity (logos and
branding), websites, publications (magazines, newspapers, and books), advertisements, and product packaging.
The last two explanatory variables are control variables, while the remaining
variables are the corporate governance variables that we discussed in Section
VA. As discussed in Section II, the signs of most of these variables are
empirical issues, so we use the observed signs to interpret our results.
The top section of Table 7 shows estimates of four variants of equation
(6) for the full sample.
They were given titles only after a maquette (at leas) had
been made. In some cases the work had already been put
together as a full-scale mockup or fabricated in steel before its image
became clear and it was named. Occasionally titles ...came to me all at
once. Moses is an instance of the latter. The parallel uprights suggested
the horns in Michelangelo’s Moses.
Typically the processes are adapted from wood processing which benefit from
the larger mill size (Paper I). However, concerns associated with the local
availability of non-wood raw material force pulp mills to remain small and thus
lead to the need for processes to be as simple as possible in order to be
competitive unless very valuable by-products can also be extracted.
The benefits of utilising agro-fibres are their generally lower lignin content
compared with woods (Grant 1958, Hurter 1988).
These guidelines specify standard appraisal procedures for Japanese real
estate appraisers (the only profession that is licensed and registered by the
government by law. Hereinafter “Japanese Appraisers”) to appraise overseas
real estate for investment purposes.
As the globalization of the real estate market progresses, cross-border real
estate investment is gaining momentum. In addition, real estate investment
trust (REIT) markets have been set up in the past few years, and
international competition in real estate markets is heightening rapidly....
These daily movements in the Portuguese long-term interest rates could reflect a risk
premium. The EC recommendation clearly signalled to markets that Portuguese
public finances were facing difficulties. Therefore, markets might have attributed
additional risk to the government debt, demanding a higher interest rate to hold the
long-term bonds. At the same time, the risk of private bonds might have decreased
relatively to government bonds, since this EC recommendation was not seen as
directly damaging this segment of the market.
In the wake of the 20-year anniversary of Earth Day in 1990 and the Gulf War shortly
thereafter, environmental issues and renewable energy enjoyed renewed interest. Several
states enacted new tax credits and began new loan and grant programs. In the late 1990s,
states continued to take the lead in developing programs, policies, and incentives to promote
the use of renewable energy, in part as a result of electric utility restructuring.
Recurring themes woven throughout this budget include maintaining service levels in departments that have
had grants expire. Significant investments in public safety personnel, equipment and vehicles are included.
We are recommending, to the extent possible, to offset increases to our residents and employees when rates
have increased. Another theme you will see is our efforts to look toward the future.
Modern office chair design has solved many of the problems of
fitting a wide range of different sized people by providing
convenient adjustments. The ranges of adjustments should be
checked to ensure that they cater as much as possible for the ethnic
mix in the workforce involved. For example, to ensure that all
people can obtain good back support, the backrest must be
sufficiently adjustable in the fore and aft direction. This changes
the effective depth of the seat which should be no greater than the
buttock to popliteal length. The backrest height should also be...
The crisis has shown that securitization is heavily dependent on markets’ perceptions and could
be subject to sudden bouts of illiquidity generated from investors’ concerns. Namely the
consequences of the increased participation in bank funding by financial markets’ investors and
the large increases in securitized assets, can led to acute liquidity crises.
The WHO has estimated that environmental exposures contribute to 19% of cancer incidence worldwide.
Additionally, a WHO Global Health Risks report looked at five environmental exposures, (unsafe water,
sanitation and hygiene, urban outdoor air pollution, indoor smoke from solid fuels, lead exposure and
climate change), and estimated they account for nearly 10% of deaths and disease burden globally and
around one quarter of deaths and disease burden in children under the age of five.
The Internet’s rapid and profound entry into our lives quite understandably makes
people wonder how, both individually and collectively, we have been affected by it.
When major shifts in technology use occur, utopian and dystopian views of their
impact on society often abound, reflecting their disruptiveness and people’s concerns.
Given its complex uses, the Internet, both as a technology and as an environment,
has had both beneficial and deleterious effects. Above all, though, it has had
The letter of intention to audit provides a general outline as to the function or purpose
of audits conducted by the Office, indicating that the inspection will have a focus on
areas and systems within the company where personal data is held and processed. If
there are any areas or issues of particular concern in advance of the audit, these
may also be highlighted in the letter. In some cases an indication will be given as to
why the organisation has been selected for audit.
In the event of the audit of a large organisation, particular areas may...
The concept of aesthetic labour and sprezzatura may offer a new way of seeing
employees. The concept needs to be tested along two routes – the employee and the organisation.
The focus is firstly inwards to the recruitment, selection and training of staff and secondly
outwards, to the public faces the organisation presents to the specific business environment. In
the first of the two roles at least, the Human Resource manager can have a major influence and
here ethical concerns may be considered as operational embedded practical aspects to daily
Therefore an Executive MBA degree program was created that is open for management / business ad-
ministration graduates as well as for graduates from other disciplines (e.g. computer science, engineer-
ing, economics, and psychology). The Executive MBA in Business Engineering program is offered as
a part-time program. To guarantee an effective learning situation, two-week learning periods at the uni-
versity alternate with six-week practice periods in which the students return to their jobs.
Social media is increasingly viewed as an important tool for women’s empowerment in the Arab region. Indeed, the Arab
Social Media Report regional survey findings show that many of the responses of male and female social media users
were similar, indicating that social media may be a “gender equalizer.” The existing gap in Arab women’s usage of social
media compared to men and to the global average is primarily a result of perceived societal and cultural constraints
Arab women continue to face in the region. The key conclusions of the regional survey findings are as follows:...

It is intended to support local
practitioners in the design and implementation of appropriate country specific EIA and
SEA arrangements and in addressing emerging demands for a more integrated approach
to decision-making in support of sustainable development. This last area was identified
as a priority at the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) and is being
taken forward by UNEP through a number of initiatives, including those reported below.
UNEP recognizes that such an approach will take time to become standard practice.
