YOUR WOW FACTOR IS THAT THING which everyone has,
although many people keep it very well hidden, and which if
nourished or encouraged would make them stand out from
the crowd. Winston Churchill was hopeless academically, the
incredibly rich Felix Dennis—entrepreneur and author—was
allegedly worse, J.K. Rowling was unpublished until she
thought of Harry Potter and the rest is, well, the rest is magic.

If this book ever sees the light of other eyes than mine, I can
guarantee that someone will ask, “What made you write it?” As
the nightmarish beast-villain in No Country for Old Men verbally
smirked, “They all say that....”
I wrote it not only to satisfy a not-totally-justified, and never
satisfied, ego, but to see if I could help people with observations
gleaned from more than 30 years in government and industry on
what accelerates personal success and what kills it.
A system of procedures and computer programs is proposed for the semi-automatic synthesis of Russian-English translation algorithms. For the purposes of automatic formula finding, a large corpus of Russian scientific and technical text may be processed by an automatic Russian-English dictionary, the resulting word-by-word translation postedited according to a systematic procedure, and the final translation transcribed back onto magnetic tape for input to a computer.

This chapter introduces basic concepts needed for the study and description of morphologically
complex words. Since this is a book about the particular branch of morphology called word-
formation, we will first take a look at the notion of ‘word’. We will then turn to a first analysis of
the kinds of phenomena that fall into the domain of word-formation, before we finally discuss
how word-formation can be distinguished from the other sub-branch of morphology, inflection.
This excellent collection of myths and legends in the "oral history" style - either from the mouths of storytellers, or from documents where their words were first captured - presents a wonderful insight into the American Indian spiritual philosophy. The book is neatly organized into chapters from the genesis of the planet and people, through myths and legends emphasizing the social structure, to love stories, warrior myths and on to the final death and afterlife stories.
The book is neatly organized into chapters from the genesis of the planet and people, through myths and legends emphasizing the social structure, to love stories, warrior myths and on to the final death and afterlife stories. Stories from tribes across the North American continent show both the divergent philsophies, as well as the common ground. The editors have wonderfully resisted any urge to edit these stories. Each chapter opens with an overview provided by Erdoes and Ortiz. There are occasional editorial explanations at the ends of stories.

The Art of Public Speaking that the news should be broken gently to his wife; the fine courtesy with which he apologized for the damage which his death would bring to the great Exhibition; and the heroic resignation of his final words, "It is God's way; His will, not ours, be done," were all the instinctive expressions of a nature so lofty and so pure that pride in its nobility at once softened and enhanced the nation's sense of loss. The Republic grieved over such a son,−−but is proud forever of having produced him. After all, in spite of its...
The name of Andrew Marvell ever sounds sweet, and always has, to use words of Charles Lamb's, a fine
relish to the ear. As the author of poetry of exquisite quality, where for the last time may be heard the
priceless note of the Elizabethan lyricist, whilst at the same moment utterance is being given to thoughts and
feelings which reach far forward to Wordsworth and Shelley, Marvell can never be forgotten in his native
Lines of Marvell's poetry have secured the final honours, and incurred the peril, of becoming "familiar
quotations" ready for use on a great variety of occasion.
A noted English lawyer-author has declared that the twelfth chapter of Ecclesiastes is the final word of the
world's philosophy; that no ancient or modern thinker has uttered a profounder word. And in the seventh verse
of that chapter it reads, "Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was; and the spirit shall return unto God
who gave it.
We investigate the controversial issue about the upper bound of interjudge agreement in the use of a low-level grammatical representation. Pessimistic views suggest that several percent of words in running text are undecidable in terms of part-of-speech categories. Our experiments with 55kW data give reason for optimism: linguists with only 30 hours' training apply the EngCG-2 morphological tags with almost 100% interjudge agreement.
The recent work of the Unit has been primarily concerned with the employment of thesauri in machine translation. Limited success has been achieved, in punchedcard tests, in improving the idiomatic quality and so the intelligibility of an initially unsatisfactory translation, by word-for-word procedures, from Italian into English, by using a program which permitted selection of final equivalents from "heads" in Roget's Thesaurus, i.e. lists of synonyms, near-synonyms and associated words and phrases, instead of from previously determined lists of alternative translations....
We propose a method to generate large-scale encyclopedic knowledge, which is valuable for much NLP research, based on the Web. We ﬁrst search the Web for pages containing a term in question. Then we use linguistic patterns and HTML structures to extract text fragments describing the term. Finally, we organize extracted term descriptions based on word senses and domains. In addition, we apply an automatically generated encyclopedia to a question answering system targeting the Japanese InformationTechnology Engineers Examination. ...
We evaluate measures of contextual ﬁtness on the task of detecting real-word spelling errors. For that purpose, we extract naturally occurring errors and their contexts from the Wikipedia revision history. We show that such natural errors are better suited for evaluation than the previously used artiﬁcially created errors. In particular, the precision of statistical methods has been largely over-estimated, while the precision of knowledge-based approaches has been under-estimated.
Security is a very important issue, which has attracted the interest of the research community the latest years, at a great factor. Hash functions belong to the category of encryption algorithms. In this work, a novel architecture and the VLSI implementation of HAVAL hash function is proposed.
