Ionic Liquids (ILs) are one of the most interesting and rapidly developing areas of modern physical chemistry, technologies and engineering. This book, consisting of 29 chapters gathered in 4 sections, reviews in detail and compiles information about some important physical-chemical properties of ILs and new practical approaches. This is the first book of a series of forthcoming publications on this field by this publisher.

In this chapter, we present a formulation for protecting digital library as intellectual property, especially
image digital library. The entire content of digital library assembled by database designers is to be differ-
entiated from its individual contents. The digital library community demands an innovative approach for
protecting digital library associated with content-based retrieval that dynamically generates indexes to its
There are several tasks where is preferable not responding than responding incorrectly. This idea is not new, but despite several previous attempts there isn’t a commonly accepted measure to assess non-response. We study here an extension of accuracy measure with this feature and a very easy to understand interpretation. The measure proposed (c@1) has a good balance of discrimination power, stability and sensitivity properties.

The field of intellectual property is a complex one. The purpose of this booklet is to provide general information and provides the relevant contact details of sector organisations, CIPRO, the government organisation responsible for administering IP rights and many others.

Due to a variety of factors, more and more companies are
being forced to continuously cut costs, boost productivity, and
struggle for success. Although their mandate might be to im-
prove sales, the resources available to do this are being cut.
For companies in this situation, the telephone can become a
For individuals, a career as a telemarketer can be long-
lasting and highly lucrative, especially once you perfect your
skills, gain experience, and develop a track record.
I and my fellow Board members at the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) are committed
to developing high quality, understandable, and enforceable global accounting standards that meet the demands
for comparable and transparent information in the world’s capital markets. Recently we completed a
work program to develop and issue a stable platform of such standards. Those standards, the International
Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), are now being implemented in a large number of countries around the
In the latest years graphene based research has witnessed a tremendous
explosion. This two dimensional ‘‘dream’’ material has come into the main spotlight of fundamental and applied research in diverse nano-science fields, but
surprisingly rapidly, it has also attracted the interest of major stakeholders in the
The mechanical behavior of materials describes the response of materials to mechanical loads or deformation. The response can be understood in terms of the basic effects of mechanical loads on defects or atomic motion. A simple understanding of atomic and defect structure is, therefore, an essential
prerequisite to the development of a fundamental understanding of the mechanical behavior of materials.
Health concerns coloured the reproductive intentions of most of
the women and some of the men. Many HIV-infected women and
men were firm in their desire not to have children. Both women
and men feared infecting a partner or their baby and were anxious
about leaving either living or future children as orphans. Women
and men were concerned about their ability to financially support
their children, given their illness. Women who had given birth to
an infected child expressed mixed feelings about becoming
Natural disasters destroy more property and kill more people with each
passing year. Volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis,
floods, landslides, fires and other natural events are becoming more
frequent and their consequences more devastating. Del Moral and
Walker provide a comprehensive summary of the diverse ways in which
natural disasters disrupt humanity and how humans cope. Burgeoning
human numbers, shrinking resources and intensification of the
consequences of natural disasters have produced a crisis of unparalleled
This study investigated the chemical, physical, and mechanical properties of the bamboo
species Phyllostachys pubescens and its utilization potential to manufacture medium
density fiberboard (MDF). The result showed holocellulose and alpha-cellulose content
increased from the base to the top portion. There was no significant variation in Klason
lignin content or ash content from the base to the top portion of the bamboo. The outer
layer had the highest holocellulose, alpha cellulose, and Klason lignin contents and the
lowest extractive and ash contents.
The subject of rock mechanics started in the 1950s from a rock physics base
and gradually became a discipline in its own right during the 1960s. As
explained in the Preface, rock mechanics is the subject concerned with the
response of rock to an applied disturbance, which is considered here as an
engineering, i.e. a man-induced, disturbance. For a natural disturbance,
rock mechanics would apply to the deformation of rocks in a structural
geology context, i.e.
A 1992 study conducted by Arthur Andersen , commissioned by the Associated Credit
Bureaus (now known as the Consumer Data Industry Association) used a different
methodology to conclude that the error rate was much lower. This study reviewed the
behavior of 15,703 consumers who were denied credit based on a credit grantor’ s scoring
system. From this sample, 1,223 consumers (7.8%) requested their credit report from the
issuing credit repository, and 304 consumers (1.9% of the total sample) disputed the
information on the report. Of these, 36 disputes (11.
The Single Market needs to continue to adapt to reach the potential for businesses and
consumers in a borderless Europe. Technological change offers huge possibilities, but it needs
to be accompanied by new approaches in areas like procurement, standards, and intellectual
property. The EU needs a long-term framework for energy and climate policies so that
investment and policy target competitiveness and tackle climate change.
Social funds should not replace the public sector in tasks that are the
government’s inherent responsibility. To do so can undermine ongoing
public sector reform and institution-building programs.
The objective of funds should be to reinforce and broaden, rather than
supplant, the role of state institutions in the social field. Undoubtedly, in
many countries, fund portfolios are going to continue to have schools
and health posts and other such social projects because funds have been
shown to be effective in that role.
Despite the expertise and ingenuity of U.S. industry and tremendous productiv-
ity of U.S. agriculture and forestry, plant-based sources cannot automatically
shoulder a major share of our chemical feedstock demand. Today, U.S.
industry only makes minor portions of some classes of chemical products
from plant-derived materials. Important scientific and commercial development
breakthroughs are needed. Petrochemicals, agriculture, forestry, and other
industries—as well as government—must make major coordinated efforts to
most effectively increase the use of plant-derived chemicals.
