The decline in the economy, particularly in the second half of 2008, likely contributed to smaller
gains in participants relative to previous years and a number of programs reported losses in the
total number of participants. Perhaps surprisingly, nonresidential participant growth was on par
with 2007; while the reason for this increase is unclear, one possible explanation could be
heightened interest in renewable energy issues in an election year in which renewables and
climate change were a focus.
Defining the various tasks required of GDHit was essential before any visual
brainstorming was approached. These tasks, once defined, helped clarify perceptions of layout
and functionality. The main function of the timeline is to search content chronologically (span a
set number of years), filter content (through the classification of various categories), read content
(the most important single function of the timeline) and filter contextually rather than linearly
(by filtering content through the Tags).
Teaching language as an activity is important especially where learners lack the
expected writing proficiency. In Andhra Pradesh, it has been observed that many ESL
learners at class IX level, especially those from regional medium schools do not have the
required writing proficiency. This could be because of several factors such as inadequate
writing practice in the classroom, poor vocabulary, examination oriented writing, teacher-
dictated writing, lack of exposure to English, lack of a homogenous English speaking
community, limited reading habits and so on.
o maintain the
ability to chew with one's own teeth over as much of one's life as possible, all people should
receive regular check-ups by a dentist once or twice yearly, even if they have no symptoms
such as pain or swelling.
Finally, a book describing in detail the oral care system presented in this pamphlet was
published by Ishiyaku Shuppan in the summer of 2004. In addition, a videotape showing in
detail the oral care system was published by Chuohoki Shuppan in 2003. Please refer to it for
more detailed information. ...
The combination of methods proved to be valuable because each method had weaknesses: the
literature search did not cover all countries; the questionnaire survey did not provide the same
amount or quality of information for all countries; and the limited resources did not allow for expert
interviews in all countries.
Each method provided certain information that was not available from the other sources. Limitations
exist for the direct comparison of single countries because of the limited number of interviews and
respondents to the survey.
The ﬁrst is the widely held view that mathematics is, somehow, innate11.
Pre-service teachers will often indicate that they do not see the need to learn
the material being covered because, when the time comes that they actually
need it, they will be able to dredge it up.
One of the most fundamental Dodd-Frank changes
affecting private funds is the elimination of the “private
advisers” exemption from registration with the SEC as an
investment adviser (also known as the “15-client” exemp-
tion). In its place, Dodd-Frank created several new, but
less comprehensive, exemptions, with the result that most
A genuine EMU needs a comprehensive approach to tackle the vicious circle of excessive
private sector indebtedness, unsustainable sovereign debt and banking sector weakness. The
EU lacks a global framework which fills in the gaps in a fully integrated financial services
policy, with a single supervisory mechanism for banks and a single rule book to govern all
financial institutions. It also needs to complete and implement the more effective mechanisms
put forward to prevent and correct unsustainable fiscal policies and economic imbalances.
Government bond turnover fell away from a peak in 2003 but has since recovered and is
currently rising on a strong but volatile trend. Turnover of repurchase agreements (repo)
continues to increase as more borrowers use them as a financing tool and is now considerably
larger than government bond market turnover by investors (Figure 7). Illustrating the relative
illiquidity of the government bond market is the low level of traded bonds—in the 12 months to
July 2007 only 22 of the 95 bonds traded on more than 100 days and only 8 traded on more
than 200 days. (Table 3)....
Project planning involves answering two questions. Answering
the first question, “What do we need to do?” is generally called
requirements gathering. Answering the second question, “How
will we do it?” is called designing or specifying (see Figure 3-1).
A requirement is a carefully written description of a criterion
that the work is expected to satisfy. (For example, a
requirement for cooking a meal might be to make inexpensive
food that is tasty and nutritious.) Good requirements are easy to
understand and hard to misinterpret.
Now that you have added users and altered permissions, create a backup of both the buildings and Osokopf
geodatabases. Follow the instructions in exercise 3 to create the backup files in the same location as the
first buildings backup, but change the names and descriptions of the backup files.
For example, a second backup of the buildings geodatabase could be called buildings_bu2 and have a
description of "Users added and permissions granted." The Osokopf backup could be called osokopf_bu1.
There is a pervasive perception among providers that treating patients with TB on an outpatient basis will lead to increased TB transmission. With the advent of modern antituberculosis chemotherapy, admission to the hospital has been shown not to be necessary for effective treatment of TB. Studies have shown that, not only does outpatient treatment of TB achieve cure rates comparable to inpatient care, outpatient therapy is not associated with an increase in TB transmission in the community.
Diverse human-produced organic chemicals can enter
surface and groundwater through human activities, including
pesticide use and industrial processes, and as breakdown
products of other chemicals (Carr and Neary 2008). Many of
these pollutants, including pesticides and other non-metallic
toxins, are used globally, persist in the environment, and
can be transported long ranges to regions where they have
never been produced (UNEP 2009).
The Department recommends that institutions engaged in human subjects research and IRBs that
review HHS conducted or supported human subjects research or FDA regulated human subjects
research consider whether establishing policies and procedures addressing IRB member potential
and actual conflicts of interest as part of overall IRB policies and procedures would help ensure
that financial interests do not compromise the rights and welfare of human research subjects. As
noted, 45 CFR 46.107(e) and 21 CFR 56.
Our paper extends the literature
on the relation between corporate governance and earnings management in
two ways. First, unlike earnings management, which most firms might engage
in routinely to varying degrees, a misstatement of earnings is a rare and
serious event in the life of a company. As Zoe-Vonna Palmrose and Susan
Scholz point out, a restatement can trigger an SEC investigation, lead to
replacement of top executives, and result in the firm being significantly
penalized by investors.7 Many restating firms subsequently end up in bankruptcy.
Closer to home, PassivSystem’s Chief Executive Officer and
founder Colin Calder got the idea for his company when he
tried to build a zero-carbon footprint house in Tuscany and
discovered that none of the green energy systems he wanted to
use were compatible with each other. Calder immediately saw
the incompatibility as a business opportunity. The experience
led him to design a networked control system relying on internal
and external sensors that synchronizes the different sources of
energy entering a house in order to get the maximum efficiency
at the lowest cost.
An excess on your policy is the amount you have to pay towards each claim.
If your claim is for more than one occurrence, the excess(es) applicable to each
occurrence will be payable.
The excesses that apply to your policy are shown on your insurance schedule
and updated on your renewal notice. They are also described in our Just Car
Comprehensive Car Insurance – Premium, Excesses & Claims Guide. See page
17 for how to access the Guide. When you make a claim we may require you
to pay your excess(es) before we make any payment or provide you...
Compiled TSPL programs are created by compiling a TSPL source module that is generated by SAS Enterprise Miner.
They do not contain TSPL source statements. Compiled TSPL programs are shared object libraries that are stored inside
the DBMS. SAS provides a collection of tools to simplify and automate the process of converting a TSPL source program
to compiled TSPL. Some of these tools integrate with specific DBMS vendor tools.
A long-standing tenet of distributed systems is that the strength of a distributed system can grow as more hosts partic-
ipate in it. Each participant may contribute data and computing resources (such as unused CPU cycles and storage) to
the overall system, and the wealth of the community can scale with the number of participants. A peer-to-peer (P2P)
distributed system is one in which participants rely on one another for service, rather than solely relying on dedicated
and often centralized infrastructure.
