We present U BY, a large-scale lexicalsemantic resource combining a wide range of information from expert-constructed and collaboratively constructed resources for English and German. It currently contains nine resources in two languages: English WordNet, Wiktionary, Wikipedia, FrameNet and VerbNet, German Wikipedia, Wiktionary and GermaNet, and multilingual OmegaWiki modeled according to the LMF standard. For FrameNet, VerbNet and all collaboratively constructed resources, this is done for the ﬁrst time.
This paper describes an on-going project concerning with an ontological lexical resource based on the abundant conceptual information grounded on Chinese characters. The ultimate goal of this project is set to construct a cognitively sound and computationally effective character-grounded machine-understandable resource. Philosophically, Chinese ideogram has its ontological status, but its applicability to the NLP task has not been expressed explicitly in terms of language resource.
An analysis of the complex relationship between demographic changes and impacts on the natural-resource base confirms that resource exploitation is occurring not only to meet growing domestic needs but also for other vested interests. Population, together with other major drivers, such as institutions, markets, and technology, will have a very strong bearing on the way in which the rich resources of the Mekong River Basin are developed and distributed in the present and future.
The resource-based view of the firm (RBV) is one of the latest strategic management concepts to be enthusiastically em-braced by marketing scholars. This paper argues that the RBV holds much promise as a framework for understanding stra-tegic marketing issues but cautions that, before it is adopted, it needs to be fully understood. Consequently, the paper charts the development of the RBV from its origins in early economic models of imperfect competition, through the work of evolutionary economists to the contributions of strategy and marketing scholars over the past two decades.
Sujet : La Perspective Resource-Based : Une évaluation et le diagnostic des problèmes.
• Introduction Depuis plus de dix ans, la Perspective Resource-Based (PRB) est progressivement devenue une approche contemporaine dominante de la recherche sur le contenu de la stratégie. À présent, la PRB est peut-être encore la structure la plus influente pour la compréhension de la gestion stratégique.

With the depletion of oil resources as well as the negative environmental impact of fossil fuels, there is much interest in alternative energy sources. Focusing on some of the most important alternate energy sources for the foreseeable future, the Handbook of Plant-Based Biofuels provides state-of-the-art information on the status of the production of biofuels, in particular, bioethanol and biodiesel.
After profiling plant-based biofuels, the book gives an overview of the production of biofuels from biomass materials by thermochemical and biochemical methods.
The purpose of this book is fairly simple, to introduce and reflect on some of the key writers,
ideas, models and approaches in strategic management.
Chapter one is brief overview of how strategy got here. Whittington’s work is used to give an
overview of different views (or even philosophies) of strategy positioned for us in a framework.
We use Whittington’s (2001) model of strategy as our base model. Whittington’s classical,
evolutionary, processual and systemic strategy offers us a reference point as well as the
underpinning for different ways of dealing with strategy....
This is a survey paper on Quality-of-Service(QoS) based routing. In this paper, we first introduce the
concept of Quality-of-Service and its background. Second, we discuss the concepts of QoS-based
routing, its objectives and main issues. After that, several types of QoS based routing algorithms are
compared, and the advantages and disadvantages of each type discussed. Then, the relations between
QoS based routing and some relevant techniques are studied, including traffic engineering, high level
admission control, resource reservation protocols(e.g.

Abstract—Efficient event delivery in a content-based
publish/subscribe system has been a challenging problem.
Existing group communication solutions, such as IP multicast or
application-level multicast techniques, are not readily applicable
due to the highly heterogeneous communication pattern in such
systems. We first explore the design space of event routing
strategies for content-based publish/subscribe systems.
