In this paper, we outline a theory of referential accessibility called Veins Theory (VT). We show how VT addresses the problem of "left satellites", currently a problem for stack-based models, and show that VT can be used to significantly reduce the search space for antecedents. We also show that VT provides a better model for determining domains of referential accessibility, and discuss how VT can be used to address various issues of structural ambiguity.
Today, it is considered good business practice for tourism industries to support their
micro and macro environment by means of strategic perspectives. This is necessary
because we cannot contemplate companies existing without their environment. If
companies do not involve themselves in such undertakings, they are in danger of
isolating themselves from the shareholder. That, in turn, creates a problem for

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is one of the most widely used statistics in
the United States. As a measure of inflation it is a key economic indicator.
It serves as a guide for the Federal Reserve Board’s monetary policy and

natural characteristics of the environment and its use; the size of forests or mineral
reserves, the quality of water or air, the depth of topsoil, etc.. In contrast, monetary
accounts place an economic value on those characteristics or their use, so as to
understand the role they play in the economy. Given the difficulty of estimating the
monetary value of certain aspects of the environment, some individuals (and countries)
advocate development of only physical accounts.
· Integrated accounts vs.
Accurate determination of the mobile position constitutes the basis of many new applications. This book provides a detailed account of wireless systems for positioning, signal processing, radio localization techniques (Time Difference Of Arrival), performances evaluation, and localization applications. The first section is dedicated to Satellite systems for positioning like GPS, GNSS. The second section addresses the localization applications using the wireless sensor networks.
