At present, great hopes are placed on information technology as the sources of
industry regeneration and new economic growth. This is because the roles of
IT have been expanded from the tools for manufacturing cost reduction and
service speedup to those for effective collaboration among enterprises and the
creation of new industries. From now on, the rise or fall of an enterprise will
be determined by quality of computerization investment. It is therefore an
urgent matter to bring up engineers who construct advanced information
systems and those who utilize them....
In this important resource, 30 real, winning scholarship essays are analyzed, revealing what makes them successful and how they fit the judges' criteria. Essays and interviews are the two components of scholarship competition that often determine the award's recipient, yet most books on scholarships simply provide a directory of awards. This book includes sample interview questions and answers, along with strategies to help students overcome nervousness and be more prepared.
There aren’t still the exact criteria for measuring speaking skills as well as the weighting given to such components as correct pronunciation.
The interdependence of the speaking and listening skill increases the difficulty of any serious attempt to analyze precisely what is being tested at one time.
Administration is another difficulty as it is impossible to test a large number of students because of limited time involved
Overall Health: Early pregnancy and childbear-
ing negatively affect the overall health of young
women and their children. In poor countries, ado-
lescent mothers are twice as likely to die from preg-
nancy- or childbirth-related causes as older moth-
ers. Data from 15 developing countries reveal that
adolescents under the age of 17 are far less likely
to receive skilled prenatal and delivery care than
women between the ages of 19 and 23 (Reynolds
et al., 2003).
A second criterion for meaningful research on cross-language transfer is the
recognition that literacy comprises many component skills. The component skills of
reading must be carefully assessed in the first and second language to trace the
development of first- and second-language abilities in relation to one another.
We know from many research studies that practising
nurses and other healthcare professionals do not
always have the time, confidence or skills to carry
out research or systematic reviews for themselves.
Therefore they rely on reviews by other people
when considering innovations and developments
in their practice.
Our aim for this book, therefore, is to present
readers with the issues arising from conducting
systematic reviews and thereby to help them
understand reviews that they identify and read
when considering developing their health policy,
services and clinical practice....
“KNOW THYSELF” and “To thine own self be true,” aphorisms taken
from classic literary works and passed down through many generations
as standard wisdom, remain popular even today. Centuries ago, when
Socrates and Shakespeare penned those now-immortal words, they probably
did not know that they were glimpsing a broader, more exact
science—that of emotional intelligence. Today, emotional intelligence has
blossomed from studies in social behavior to a measurable, predictable
pattern of thought and action that influences decision making and success
A tutorial sheet explained the meaning of UML class
diagrams, and, using a simple example, described its
semantics. Subjects were not expected to have any prior
knowledge of UML, and this tutorial provided all the
UML background information they required for the
experimental task. A worked example demonstrated the
task that the subjects were to perform, by presenting a
small specification with four different diagrams, and for
each diagram indicating whether it matched the given
specification or not.
Elon’s PA program will prepare graduates to think critically and act skillfully to meet
expanding health care needs in local and global communities. Students will immerse
themselves in a curriculum structured around active learning strategies through
collaborative work with Elon’s faculty, scholars and practitioners in the field. Students
will emerge in a little more than two years as graduates prepared to employ the most
current knowledge to care for patients’ physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs.
This is a good coursebook for those who wish to improve their skills and prepare for a New Edition TOEIC Exam. Currently, most companies use the TOEIC test as a tool to evaluate the use of English of the staff and the recruitment criteria for candidates. Therefore, learning English TOEIC and TOEIC exams are very interesting.
What drives development? How much of the process is determined by people’s assets, skills, and
opportunities; by the regulatory environment; or by the location, arrangement, and dynamics
of interconnected economic activities? Whereas the first two of these criteria have attracted
considerable attention, much less research has been directed at the influence of the intensity and
degree of concentration of economic activity. A study of how industrial clusters are organised and
function should contribute to a better understanding of this issue.
The writing reviews the potential value of using literary texts in language teaching, and criteria for the text selection and some positive gains, which helps English language teachers teach various skills for the first year students at the Department of English-American Language and Culture, University of Languages and International Studies, VNU.
