English as their native tongue are compelled to write
their work in English which, by chance, happens to be the de facto, universal language of
science. As a result, it compelled me to address many of the aspects of scientific writing from
the viewpoint of non-native English speaking authors and to emphasise that they are not as
disadvantaged as they perhaps may think. The language of science which conveys logic and
reasoning, is independent of the language in which it happens to be expressed.
Teaching additional languages means teaching a second, third
or further language within students’ countries of origin or in
countries to which they have migrated. Because there are so
many languages in the world and so many reasons why students
should learn them, the teaching of additional languages is a
great challenge and opportunity for educators.
Congress was an active participant in the policy responses to this crisis and has an ongoing
interest in macroeconomic conditions. Current macroeconomic concerns include whether the
economy is in a sustained recovery, rapidly reducing unemployment, speeding a return to normal
output and employment growth, and addressing government’s long-term debt problem.
In the typical post-war business cycle, lower than normal growth during the recession is quickly
followed by a recovery period with above normal growth.
Genetic factors and environmental factors - lifestyle, personal and family medical history - need to be
considered for a complete picture of risk assessment. This is because each of these types of risk factors has
advantages and limitations in informing risk. For example, family medical history can capture general risk
information for genetic factors inherited from one’s parents, but can be incomplete, unknown, or recalled
inaccurately. Indeed, family medical history can often be one-dimensional and is affected by family size.
a. A proprietorship, or sole proprietorship, is a business owned by one individual. A partnership exists when two or more persons associate to conduct a business. In contrast, a corporation is a legal entity created by a state. The corporation is separate and distinct from its owners and managers. b. In a limited partnership, limited partners’ liabilities, investment returns and control are limited, while general partners have unlimited liability and control.
All practical systems contain nonlinear dynamics. Control system development for
these systems has traditionally been based on linearized system dynamics in
conjunction with linear control techniques. Sometimes it is possible to describe the
operation of systems by a linear model around its operating points. Linearized system
can provide approximate behavior of the system. But in analyzing the overall system
behavior, the resulting system model is inadequate or inaccurate. Moreover, the
stability of the system cannot be guaranteed.
Buying options is the best way to start trading options. The
big advantage that you have is that you can’t lose more than you
pay for the option. That is not true of some other option strategies
such as option writing.The major error made by option buyers and the reason some
take big losses is that they pay too much for their options. In fact,
most option authorities recommend buying in-the-money options
where the stock price is across the strike price.
Govender et al. present an important overview of criteria employed to predict
recurrence and progression to MS, with particular attention given to radiological
findings. Guevara Campos and González Guevara focus specifically on Landau
Kleffner syndrome (LKS; sometimes called infantile acquired aphasia), in which
language comprehension and expression impairments emerge after an initial period of

A lever is a rigid rod or bar capable of turning about a fixed point called fulcrum. It is used as a machine to lift a load by the application of a small effort. The ratio of load lifted to the effort applied is called mechanical advantage. Sometimes, a lever is merely used to facilitate the application...
It is evident that insecticides have been used to boost food production to a considerable
extent and to control vectors of disease. However, these advantages that are of great
economic benefits sometimes come with disadvantages when subjected to critical
environmental and human health considerations. Many insecticides are newly synthesized
whose health and environmental implications are unknown.
Being first in line earns a devoted fan the best seat in the stadi-
um. The first runner to break the ribbon spanning the finish
line receives a gold medal. The firstborn child inherits the royal
throne. Certain advantages or privileges often accompany being the
first, but sometimes the price paid is considerable.
The Glossary provides explanations of all the terms commonly used in this guide that have a specific meaning in
an implementation planning context. However there are a few key terms used that it is important to
understand from the start.
Benefit the measurable improvement resulting from an outcome which is perceived as an advantage by one or
more stakeholders. It should be noted that not all outcomes will be perceived as positive, and outcomes that
are positive for some stakeholders will be negative for others (sometimes referred to as “dis-benefits”).
Bonfand’s style takes full advantage of the freedom allowed by the essay form. In the
first place, Bonfand’s use of bibliographical materials follows a strict parti-pris. While he
gives great importance to the filmmakers, or painters, own words, often quoting
interviews or autobiographies and excavates and values non-produced film scenarios (in
the two chapters on Antonioni), he does not waste time nor room by quoting existing
books on the subjects he approaches. This orientation is sometimes embarrassing and
weakens the intellectual honesty of the book as a whole. ...
Typical algorithms and data structures textbooks are seven or eight hundred pages long, include chapters
about software engineering and the programming language used in the book, and include appendices
with yet more information about the programming language. Often they include lengthy case studies
with tens of pages of specifications and code. Frequently they are hardcover books printed in two colors;
sometimes they have sidebars with various sorts of supplementary material.
The purpose of this book is to deal with Browning, not simply as a poet, but rather as the exponent of a
system of ideas on moral and religious subjects, which may fairly be called a philosophy. I am conscious that
it is a wrong to a poet to neglect, or even to subordinate, the artistic aspect of his work. At least, it would be a
wrong, if our final judgment on his poetry were to be determined on such a method. But there is a place for
everything; and, even in the case of a great poet, there is sometimes an advantage in...
We recognize many managers may not be able to pick and choose their team, but if at all possible, the first
practical step in building a collaborative team is selecting team members with the right attitude and complemen-
tary skills. Particularly, if the organization has not worked with XP before, the team members should be people
who are adaptable and willing to try new ways of working, although having a few non-believers can have its
advantages. In theory, XP teams have no experts – all developers work on all aspects. In reality, sometimes
experts are needed when the team...
We next turn over a new leaf, and open upon a pompous dedication, which answers many laudable purposes:
if a coat of arms, correctly engraven, should step first into view, we consider it a singular advantage gained
over a reader, like the first blow in a combat. The dedication itself becomes a pair of stilts, which advance an
author something higher.
An “investment adviser” is an individual or firm responsible for making investments on
behalf of, and providing advice to, investors. An investment adviser has a duty to act in
the best interest of their clients. Sometimes, however, investment advisers will take
advantage of their positions of trust and use unauthorized and deceptive methods to
misappropriate money directly from their clients. Investors should be careful to review
their monthly account statements and to conduct annual reviews of their investment plans
with their investment adviser.

Errors in computer programs are called "bugs". They may be benign and not affect the usefulness of the program, or have only subtle effects. But in some cases they may cause the program or the entire system to "hang" – become unresponsive to input such as mouse clicks or keystrokes – to completely fail, or to crash. Otherwise benign bugs may sometimes be harnessed for malicious intent by an unscrupulous user writing an exploit, code designed to take advantage of a bug and disrupt a computer's proper execution. Bugs are usually not the fault of the computer. Since computers merely...
