Reliable and cost-effective monitoring will be an
important part of making GS a safe, effective, and
acceptable method for CO2 control. Monitoring will
be required as part of the permitting process for
underground injection and will be used for a number
of purposes, such as tracking the location of the plume
of injected CO2, ensuring that injection and abandoned
wells are not leaking, and verifying the quantity of
CO2 that has been injected underground.
Addressing the health needs of women living with HIV/AIDS presents special challenges, including that of
screening for cervical cancer. These women are at increased risk of HPV infection, and thus, of developing
an AIDS-defining condition.
While the current document cannot review this topic in detail,
studies are available with information on whether there is a need for specific screening guidelines for HIV-
Collecting health expenditure in Zambia utilizing NHA surveys is an activity that has not been
institutionalized or routine for many private entities and individuals. Similar to other developing
countries, a major barrier to conducting a NHA analysis is collecting data that is available, valid,
reliable, and consistent.
As noted in the 1998 Rwanda HIV/AIDS subanalysis (Schneider et al.
This handbook is intended to help engineers in industry
with the operation and maintenance of machinery. It
gives the information that these engineers need in a
form that is instantly accessible and easy to read.
The manufacturers of machinery provide guidance on
the operation, lubrication and maintenance required for
their particular machines.
Web developers have been eager for an impartial comparison of leading PHP frameworks so they can make educated decisions about the most effective tool for their needs. This guide uses Symfony, CakePHP, and Zend Framework to solve key problems, providing source code examples and comparisons for each. It explains the approach and reviews the similarities and differences in the three frameworks, providing reliable information on which to base your decisions.
In any FTTX deployment, the goal of network planners is to build the most
flexible and reliable system possible in the least amount of time and at the
lowest possible cost. ADC has been an industry leader in the development
of cost-effective plug-and-play architectures that provide both time and cost
savings while increasing the flexibility of the network. This paper will discuss the
advantages of hardened connectors and drop cables using Multi-port Service
Terminals (MSTs) for accelerated FTTX deployment and rapid service turn-up.
Generally speaking, Operations Management is an area of business concerned with the pro‐
duction of goods and services. It involves the responsibility of ensuring that business opera‐
tions are efficient in terms of using as few resources as needed, and effective in terms of
meeting customer requirements. It is concerned with managing the process that converts
inputs (in the forms of materials, labour, and energy) into outputs (in the ...
Machinery reliability management in the process industries can be
divided into three phases: equipment selection and pre-erection reliability
assurance, preparation for effective startup, and post-startup reliability
assurance and maintenance cost reduction. All of these phases are important;
they are intertwined and merit equal attention. The techniques and
procedures described in this text cover essential elements of each phase;
they have been critically examined and have led to substantially
improved reliability and maintenance efficiencies.

With this new edition of Effective Expert Witnessing, Dr. Matson has added
new information that is critical to expert witnessing in the late 1990s. In the
decade since the first edition of this book was published, expert witnessing has
been transformed by a series of court rulings generally concerned with the
reliability, relevancy, and admissibility of expert testimony. Expert witnessing
and trial strategy have not been the same since these decisions.
An effective separation method of very pure binder fraction to assess radiocarbon dating is
proposed in the present contribution. The elimination of contaminant error sources and the
suitable selection of mortar samples enable the reliable dating. Petrographic analysis under
polarizing light microscopy is used to identify different mineralogical phases of mortar
samples, aggregate nature, and the limestone fragment remains.
The book deals with the MOS Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET) models that are derived from basic semiconductor theory. Various models are developed, ranging from simple to more sophisticated models that take into account new physical effects observed in submicron transistors used in today's (1993) MOS VLSI technology. The assumptions used to arrive at the models are emphasized so that the accuracy of the models in describing the device characteristics are clearly understood. Due to the importance of designing reliable circuits, device reliability models are also covered.
Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) have played an increasingly important
role in sensor and actuator applications. And its key contribution is that it has enabled
the integration of multi-components (i.e., electronics, mechanics, fluidics and etc) on a
single chip and their integration has positive effects upon performance, reliability and
cost. Compared to conventional electrostatic, thermal or magnetic actuating schemes,
piezoelectric MEMS inkjet has the advantages of lower power consumption, lower
voltage operation and relatively larger driving force....
Gaps in knowledge were detected in the
course of this review. These are summarized
in the following section, which also
suggests directions for further investigation.
Further study and regular dietary
monitoring are needed in order to know
more about food consumption habits in
seniors. These investigations must be
adapted to the reality of targeted aging
populations using precise measurements,
diverse approaches, appropriate methods
and accurate dietary assessment tools to
reflect the great heterogeneity typical of
The value of the share
depends on how well its property rights are enforced. The enforcement of property rights
is usually undertaken by both individual owners and the state. In economies where the
state does not effectively enforce property rights, the enforcement by individual owners
plays a relatively more important role. The structure of share ownership affects the
degree to which corporate contracts are enforced, because it affects the owners’ abilities
and incentives to enforce the property rights delineated by the contracts.
Potential negative consequences of early identification of
cognitive impairment clearly exist. Labelling an individual as demented
may affect his or her ability to obtain life or health insurance, and may
influence attitudes towards the individual by health care professionals
and others. The label of Alzheimer’s disease may cause prejudice and
difficulty in gaining admission to some long-term facilities.
However, double mode will also cause a redundancy effect. Diao and Sweller (2007)
conducted a study with university students which demonstrated that text-only
presentation mode was better than synchronised sound and text presentation mode,
for both performance and cognitive load. This result supported the proposition that the
redundancy effect occurs when sound is presented simultaneously with text, which is
not beneficial to learning. However, this study did not take learners’ prior knowledge
into account. A Chinese learning study, with high school...
To determine the reliability of applying these categories to specific song lyrics, two
observers independently classified the reproductive themes present in written versions of
the reproductively relevant phrases extracted from a representative sample of the Pop,
Country, and R&B songs. The number of phrases containing reproductive messages ranged
from 2 (“White Horse” and “Second Chance”) to 29 (“Baby By Me”) for a total of 219
reproductive phrases, with an average of 8.76 different reproductive references per song.
The Port Authority would likely benefit from a meaningful organizational redesign to focus on
its strategic business units and cost saving shared services functions. To be successful,
entrusted appointed senior leadership needs effective command and control to manage change
and drive accountability throughout the organization.
A leader is someone who sets direction in an effort and influences people to
follow that direction. It is important to have skills in forming, leading and facilitating a
project team. However, a coherent theoretical foundation that explains how leadership
engages people fully and effectively is lacking (Howell, 2006).
This research will provide a clearer understanding of the concept of leadership in
projects, discussing how and why it works, and the ways to make project teams more
dynamic and effective.
