Specification by Example is an emerging practice for creating software based on realistic examples, bridging the communication gap between business stakeholders and the dev teams building the software. In this book, author Gojko Adzic distills interviews with successful teams worldwide, sharing how they specify, develop, and deliver software, without defects, in short iterative delivery cycles.
Step-by-step example-driven tutorials to create several games from scratch. Each game comes with a specific learning topic in HTML5 or CSS3. This book is for web designers or game developers who want to build browser games with HTML5 and CSS3. You’ll need some background with web development or other programming but no game development experience is necessary.
In the first category, new terms are created by adding modifiers to existing terms. For example “insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus” was created by adding modifier “insulin-dependent” to its hypernym “diabetes mellitus” as in Table 1. In English, the specific level terms are very commonly compounds of the generic level term and some modifier (Croft, 2004).
All living organisms require food for survival, growth, and reproduction. Most broadly, the term food can be taken to include any kind of nutrient needed by animals, plants, and simpler forms of life, on down to bacteria. This would include, for example, the inorganic substances that 5 plants draw from air and water. The processes that circulate these basic nutrients in the environment are called nutrient cycles, and the processes by which organisms make use of nutrients are collectively known as metabolism.

Concept of User Interface
The user interface is the part of the system that you see, hear and feel (look and feel)
Other parts of the system are hidden to you, for instance the database where information is stored.
Although users don’t see the hidden parts, they imagine to some extent what is going on ’behind the screen’.
When you use a computer, you give it orders, usually by means of the mouse and the keyboard.
The computer replies, usually by showing something on the screen or making sounds.
Our students were deeply moved, as we were, for example, by a bronze flutist from
Benin, Nigeria; a Haida mask of western Canada; a Mayan god of Central America—as we saw
how in the very purpose and structure of art, such opposites as sameness and difference, surface
and depth, the intimate and the wide, hard and soft are made one. And these are the very same
opposites we are trying to put together in ourselves. Through the opposites, we see our true
kinship to peoples far away in place and time....
In Pakistan, a two-tiered action plan is required: to develop systems, which provide profitability
for the smallholder and maintain quality through the supply chain, while assisting the
development of larger scale commercial farms. We believe the co-existence of both kinds of farms is
the reality of dairying in Pakistan and development efforts must provide solutions for both smallholders
and commercial farmers. The Chinese model of farm development may provide a good example.
Milk production in China is very diverse.
AFTER an unequivocal experience of the inefficacy of the subsisting federal government, you are called upon to deliberate on a new Constitution for the United States of America. The subject speaks its own importance; comprehending in its consequences nothing less than the existence of the UNION, the safety and welfare of the parts of which it is composed, the fate of an empire in many respects the most interesting in the world. It has been frequently remarked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question,...
Scoring Extended- and Short-Response Items
Extended- and short-response items are evaluated according to an established scoring scale, called a
rubric, developed from a combination of expectations and a sample of actual student responses. Such
rubrics must be particularized by expected work and further developed by examples of student work in
developing a guide for scorers. Illinois educators play a substantial role in developing these guides used
for the scoring of the short- and extended-response items.
In these ten volumes the aim has been to present striking accounts of ten great epochs in the history of the
United States, from the landing of Columbus to the building of the Panama Canal. In large part, events
composing each epoch are described by men who participated in them, or were personal eye-witnesses of
Columbus, for example, described his own first voyage; Washington, the defeat of Braddock; Gen. "Sam"
Houston the battle of San Jacinto; General Robert E.

Ever wonder what the difference is between “terminating” an employee and “firing” an employee, or if there is any difference at all? Easy Small Business HR’s “HR Dictionary” takes the mystery out some of the human resources jargon by highlighting some of the basic definitions of words most often used by those in the position to hire and manage staff. Some basic terms used by HR professionals when interviewing candidates: Behavioral Interview – an interview technique that requires that the person being interviewed provide specific examples that support their responses.
Over the years, a wide variety of methods have been developed to reduce
the chances of becoming pregnant. These methods are called birth con-
trol or contraception.
Birth control helps a couple plan if and when to have a child. However,
birth control gained even more importance in the late twentieth century
for two additional reasons. The world’s human population is growing faster
than at any other time in history. For example, in 1800, Earth supported
a population of almost 1 billion people. By the year 2000, the human pop-
ulation reached 6 billion.
Rigorously speaking the functional group is not the whole molecule but only that collection of atoms
that provides a specific chemical function. For example, the chemical family of alcohols is
characterized by the function of the hydroxyl (OH) group, and aldehydes, ketones are characterized
by carbonyl groups (C=O). There are various combinations of hydroxyl groups in molecules along
with carbonyl groups and these combinations can lead to hydroxyketones and aldehydes (the basis for
sugars) as well as to carboxylic acids.
After sales follow through: just as in a traditional sale, an e-sale is not complete if
the customer is not completely satisfied with the exchange. Satisfaction through the
consumption process can only be ensured if an e-sale is followed by a rigorous post sale
routine. A good example of the above mentioned is found in following Amazon.com’s
transaction routine: It begins with a confirmation as soon as the sale is made and this is
typically followed by shipping details and a tracking number that allows the customer to
track the shipping/delivery process.
Marketing has been witness to a growing degree of finesse in being able to reach
its target audience. This movement to identify and subsequently target a specific group
of the population began with the understanding of the demographic profile of the target
group to be reached. This was subsequently enhanced by the addition of other
characteristics such as geographic location of audience members, their psychographic
profile, and then on the basis of the technological developments (Example: scanners)
consumer product usage data.
The problems created for small business owners by the current rise in energy costs are
two-fold. First, energy costs have increased rapidly over the last two years and even more so
in the last six months. Small business owners are not able to adjust the price of their goods
and services quickly enough to match the steep energy cost increases without hurting their
customer base. Second, owners are not able to change business practices fast enough to offset
