The rise of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) – a whole array
of practices, products and approaches to health and illness1 – can certainly no
longer be characterised as cultural fad or fashion. Changes in the use of titles
(from ‘unscientific’ and ‘marginal’ to ‘complementary’ and ‘integrative’)
reflect a more substantive relocation and transformation of many of these
medicines from the fringe to the mainstream of both community and professional
health-care discourse and practice (Tovey et al. 2004).
Jefferson’s perception has largely been replaced by other interpretations, but
the perception remains unchanged that the agriculture, forestry, and fishing (AFF)
workforce engages in noble activity that secures the nation’s present and future
fate. These populations deserve to work in environments that contribute to the
production of safe consumer products and that protect their health.
In recent years, collocation has been widely acknowledged as an essential characteristic to distinguish native speakers from non-native speakers. Research on academic writing has also shown that collocations are not only common but serve a particularly important discourse function within the academic community. In our study, we propose a machine learning approach to implementing an online collocation writing assistant. We use a data-driven classifier to provide collocation suggestions to improve word choices, based on the result of classification. ...
However, as research in this area matures, findings are becoming more complex.
Studies by Motteram and Forrester (2005), Fung (2004) and Kear (2004) all show that
whilst some students gain support and reassurance from interacting with other
students, others place little value on such activities or struggle to find the time to
engage in them due to work and family commitments....
The extraordinarily broad scope of the congressional request for advice
on coal resources and future coal research and development needs provided
a significant challenge for the committee appointed by the National
Research Council (NRC). Fortunately, clarifications by staff members from the
offices of U.S. Senators Robert C. Byrd and Arlen Specter—the originators of
this study—were most helpful, suggesting that the report should be brief and
contain limited detail, but with abundant references to other, more comprehensive
The thesis’s purposes of research consist of: Based on systemizing and developing several basic theoretical issues about labor relations in enterprises and evaluating the real status of labor relations in JSCs in Hanoi during the last time, the thesis suggest some synchronistic solutions to improve labor relations in JSCs in Hanoi in the forthcoming time.
This paper raises concerns that natural language front ends for computer systems can limit a researcher's scope of thinking, yield inappropriately complex systems, and exaggerate public fear of computers. Alternative modes of computer use are suggested and the role of psychologically oriented controlled experimentation is emphasized. Research methods and recent experimental results are briefly reviewed.
Chapter 3 - Searching the literature. The main contents of the chapter consist of the following: Reading the literature, knowledge of the literature, importance of literature review, purposes of the review, suggestions for reviewing the literature,...
Topic 1A - Country selection/research and suggested approach. In this chapter, students will be able to understand: Country selections, country risk selection methodology, empirical research on country selection, research: survey of risk factors, project specific risk measure approach.
How you negotiate in the day to day determines how much you make, what perks you get, and how easy it is to get projects approved and satisfy disgruntled customers. In short it determines the ease with which you get agreement from other people and deal with conflict. Yet recent research has shown that two and a half times as many women as men fee
This paper deals with the domination of communicative language teaching (CLT) which has become popular in teaching foreign languages. However, the application of CLT has caused difficulties for students, teachers and administrators. Within the scope of this paper, only teachers are mentioned so that we can see a part of teaching issues when CLT is introduced. The paper also suggests more research should be conducted based upon the factors of students and administrators in order that we can take proper steps in language training in the country.
This paper aims to assess the present situation of English pronunciation students of Agriculture University in Hanoi and suggests some specific methods to improve students' pronunciation. Fact that most students are not interested in the pronunciation until they have trouble speaking English correctly and the difficulty in listening to English tapes. Furthermore, they only imitate others pronounce that they claim that they speak English better.
Globalization is perhaps only another name to replace the lacking one for what is
happening to (with) us humans in the name of techno-bureaucratic, commercial,
violent, amusing, consumerist process of creating a so-called global society of
knowledge and skills. "Globalization offers both a theory of everything and an
explanation of nothing" - suggests J. Annesley in Fictions of Globalization (2006).

The employer-employee Relationship: A phenomenological Study of Retention and the Information Technology Worker In University of California data, I find evidence that observable background
characteristicsparticularly those describing the composition of the school, rather than the
individuals own backgroundare strong predictors of both SAT scores and collegiate
performance, and that much of the SATs apparent predictive power derives from its
association with these background characteristics.
Currently, where business and management topics are included in the veterinary
curriculum, they tend to be incorporated under the banner of ‘Professional Studies’, a strand
of education running though most veterinary degrees, which, as its label suggests, covers
the professional behaviour aspects of veterinary medicine.

For decades, researchers have been puzzled by three sets of empirical results associated
with the pricing of initial public o¤erings (IPOs). Besides the well-documented
underpricing puzzle and hot-issue market puzzle1, severe long-run underperformance of
IPOs is reported recently by Ritter (1991) and Loughran and Ritter (1995), suggesting
that market ine¢ciency may be even more pervasive than previously recognized. Thus, the
IPO market, albeit small in scale, has become a leading example of anomalies against the
e¢cient market hypothesis (Fama 1998)....

This book is the result of twelve years' experience in teaching university students to write special feature articles for newspapers and popular magazines. By applying the methods outlined in the following pages, young men and women have been able to prepare articles that have been accepted by many newspaper and magazine editors. The success that these students have achieved leads the author to believe that others who desire to write special articles may be aided by the suggestions given in this book.
A researcher may be under the illusion that his research will sell itself more or less
automatically. On the contrary, it is the duty of an author to write an article so that an
outsider can understand the main points and the reasoning logic with relative ease. Your
article competes against other submitted article proposals. The decision on acceptance is
not done based only on the article substance, but the readability of the article also matters.
Consequently, an article must have a clear and logical structure combined with fluent
