This report has five chapters: Chapter 1 outlines its contents; Chapter 2 describes the institutional framework for environmental protection in Vietnam; Chapter 3 focuses on the social environment; Chapter 4 discusses the natural environment in the study area; and Chapter 5 assesses the environmental aspects for the feasibility studies. For the social environment context, the resettlement issue is analyzed in Chapter 4. The environmental impact assessment (EIA) was prepared in a different format.
There has been many discussion about which strategy is better, fundamental analysis or tehcnical analysis. Technical aproach has been reinforced by trading software which can be used to predict price based on price simulation, where it uses models for each market without regard the underlying economy or fundamental which driven the market. Several recently developed programs help boil down the maze of economic and fundamental information into a form useful by traders who do not have formal training in economics.
This paper describes a summarization system for technical chats and emails on the Linux kernel. To reflect the complexity and sophistication of the discussions, they are clustered according to subtopic structure on the sub-message level, and immediate responding pairs are identified through machine learning methods. A resulting summary consists of one or more mini-summaries, each on a subtopic from the discussion.
In responding to the guidelines established by the session chairman of this panel, three of the five topics he set forth will be discussed. These include aggregate functions and quantity questions, querying semantically complex fields, and multi-file queries. As we will make clear in the sequel, the transformational apparatus utilized in the TQA Question Answering System provides a principled basis for handling these and many other problems i n natural language access to databases.
Although there have been many experimental systems for natural-language access to databases, with some now going into actual use, many problems in this area remain to be solved. The purpose of this panel is to put some of those problems before the conference. The panel's motivation stems partly from the fact that, too often in the past, discussion of natural-language access to databases has focused, at the expense of the underlying issues, on what particular systems can or cannot do. To avoid this, the discussions of the present panel will be organized around issues rather than systems. ...

The purpose of this article is to give some context to the current discussions abounding in
language teaching classrooms around the world. I think it is essential to judge the most recently
marketed approaches in the light of what has gone before. And following Thomas Kuhn, who
wrote the seminal The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, my suggestion is that we integrate and
account for, rather than sweep away, past approaches.
The world faces serious difficulties in obtaining the energy that will be needed in coming decades for a growing population, especially given the problem of climate change caused by fossil fuel use. This book presents a view of nuclear energy as an important carbon-free energy option. It discusses the nuclear fuel cycle, the types of reactors used today and proposed for the future, nuclear waste disposal, reactor accidents and reactor safety, nuclear weapon proliferation, and the cost of electric power.
This manual provides guidance on lubricants and hydraulic fluids to engineering, operations, maintenance, and construction personnel and other individuals responsible for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) civil works equipment. Applicability. This manual applies to all USACE commands having civil works responsibility. 3. Discussion. This manual is intended to be a practical guide to lubrication with enough technical detail to allow personnel to recognize and easily discern
causing a voltage sag with duration of more than 1 cycle occurs within the area of vulnerability. However, faults outside this area will not cause the voltage to drop below 0.5 pu. The same discussion applies to the area of vulnerability for ASD loads. The less sensitive the equipment, the smaller the area of vulnerability will be (and the fewer times sags will cause the equipment to misoperate).
The voltage sag performance for a given customer facility will depend on whether the customer is supplied from the transmission system or from the distribution system.
Success with Facebook applications is one part idea, one part technical, and one part execution. Mike’s book does an amazing job covering all three. He takes you from evaluating your idea and thinking about platform strategy through every step of building the application and then even covers advanced strategies and considerations for scaling. This book will save you a tremendous amount of time learning the platform and building a successful viral application.
The aim of the study was to investigate the crystallization kinetics and solidification
behaviour of Fe60Co8Mo5Zr10W2B15 bulk glass forming alloy. The solidification
behaviour in near-equilibrium and non-equilibrium cooling conditions was studied.
The eutectic and peritectic reactions were found to exist in the solidification
sequence of the alloy. The bulk metallic glass formation was achieved by using two
methods: quenching from the liquid state and quenching from the semi-state.
This manual describes the interactive use of EViews, a program for statistical and econometric
analysis, and forecasting. For details on the EViews command language, as well as a
description of the programming and matrix languages, we refer you to the companion volume—
the EViews Command and Programming Reference.
This demand feature bridges the gap between borrowers and lenders. It
allows governments to issue the long-term bonds they prefer, while making
that debt eligible for purchase by money funds that must invest in short-term
Sound like the SIVs we discussed earlier? VRDNs are like SIVs in many
respects, but with some key differences. First, there is generally less concern
about the credit quality of the bonds in a VRDN than the securities held
in a SIV—governments are usually pretty good payers.
The earlier in the process a student reaches the main idea, the better the structural principle is
challenged. Lessons from the experiment suggest that getting a main idea and utility properties
reconciled is a challenge that encourages students so that they will have a better drive in the process
than students who work from a context adjustment solely. Reflection on the formgiving process was
supported by a theoretical division into form elements. This was also used in discussion of a form’s
weakness and strength with respect to the design specification.
The case studies included in this discussion paper are part of a project that
Resources for the Future (RFF) is conducting under a cooperative agreement with the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and with general support from RFF. The
case studies were originally vetted as RFF Discussion Paper 97-08 in 1996, and this
revised version of the discussion paper reflects many useful comments and corrections
supplied by reviewers.
The topic of real assets is currently being intensively discussed in the media and
among investors. The turbulence in the financial markets since the start of the
subprime crisis in 2007, together with latent worries about inflation resulting from
unorthodox financial policies, mean that investors are looking for alternatives to
investments in stocks or bonds. Preservation of capital has taken on a new
significance. Gold has benefitted from this in the last few years.
Ever since the advent of automatic computation devices,
efforts have been made to answer the question of how to
properly integrate them and take advantage of their capabilities
in education. Educational multimedia systems
promise to make learning easier, more convenient, and thus
more effective. For example, classroom teaching enriched
by vivid presentations promise to improve the motivation
of the learner. Concepts may be given a perceivable existence
in a video show and the observability of important
details can be stressed.
Discovering Artificial Economics is an informal introduction to the ideas of modern systems theory and self-organization as they apply to problems in the economic realm. David Batten interleaves anecdotes and stories with technical discussions, in order to provide the general reader with a good feel for how economies
The Environmental Quality Laboratory (EQL) traces its origins to a series of discussions initiated by Caltech President Harold Brown on the feasibility of a Caltech Air Pollution Laboratory aimed at alleviating the smog problem in the South Coast Air Basin. In an address to the Institute for the Advancement of Engineering on February 28, 1970,  Dr. Brown summarized the main conclusions of a faculty-JPL study group on smog led by Professor Carver Mead that preceded the formation of the EQL.
