  • We have analyzed definitions from Webster's Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary using Sager's Linguistic String Parser and again using basic UNIX text processing utilities such as grep and awk. Tiffs paper evaluates both procedures, compares their results, and discusses possible future lines of research exploiting and combining their respective strengths. Introduction As natural language systems grow more sophisticated, they need larger and more d ~ l e d lexicons.

  • We are privileged to be living in one of the greatest eras of exploration that humankind has ever undertaken. Our current Age of Space grew out of the dark struggles of World War II when large rockets were developed as agents of mass murder. The subsequent Cold War rivalry between the United States and Soviet Union pushed rocket capabilities to the point that it became possible to send vehicles into Earth orbit and beyond (even though the stated aim was to send missiles carrying nuclear weapons over mere continental distances). The Russians put the first human into Earth orbit.

  • Our book is the collective effort of six economists with a great deal of help from their colleagues, teachers, families, and friends and, of course, the publisher (we especially thank Elizabeth Wald at Blackwell). As originally conceived, the book was to have only two authors (Quentin and Rob), but as the scope of the text expanded so did the need to bring in additional expert- ise for the chapters on non-market valuation (Vic), water (Steven), trade and biodiversity (Diane), and forestry and the global commons (Harry).

  • How can you ensure these companies discover your products? Some catalog buyers, as well as many retail store buyers, rely on the convenience of trade shows as a one stop shopping place for their products and trade shows can be a wonderful venue not only for you to showcase your products to potential buyers but also because they offer a variety of training and networking opportunities. The Natural Products Expo series of trade shows offers both the Distributer Matching Service, mentioned above, and a Global Business Training Program free to participants at its trade shows.

  • Air pollution does not only damage the air; it also damages environments on Earth’s surface and their inhabitants. Plants and animals are harmed by air pollution. Sometimes it is the pollutants themselves that cause damage. Other times pollutants combine and change the resources that plants and animals depend upon such as water, soil, and nutrients. The impacts of air pollution are diverse and numerous. Air pollution can have serious consequences for the health of human beings, and also severely affects natural ecosystems.

  • Many people in the field of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) share the belief that a revolution is under way. As MEMS begin to permeate more and more industrial procedures, not only engineering but society as a whole will be strongly affected. MEMS provide a new design technology that could rival, and perhaps even surpass, the societal impact of integrated circuits (ICs). Is this fact or fiction? If it is fact, then several questions must be asked.

  • This payment pattern contrasts with the monthly payments typically associated with AFDC/TANF and food stamps, and it may provide a way to gain addi- tional insight into the nature of credit markets and consumption behavior for low-income families. Our goal in section 3.5 is to summarize succinctly what has been done, to evaluate the strengths of this work, and to identify areas where addi- tional work could be useful to either verify existing conjectures or alter what we thought was known.

  • The type of soil strength characteristic (i.e. the variation of soil strength with soil water content) favourable to crop growth depends on both the amount and the distribution of the annual rainfall, and on the nature of the crop. The soil must have sufficient mechanical strength to provide adequate anchorage for the plant throughout its development, and to prevent the collapse of soil water and air pathways by soil overburden pressure and the weight of vehicle and animal traffic. Dense regions of high strength may limit root growth and crop...

  • The paper addresses the problem of automatic enrichment of a thesaurus by classifying new words into its classes. The proposed classification method makes use of both the distributional data about a new word and the strength of the semantic relatedness of its target class to other likely candidate classes.

  • Surface water treatment is a controversial issue. A healthy balance between possible risks, such as immediate microbiological contamination and long-term carcinogenic effects due to dsinfection byproducts, and the treatment costs is required. Another issue of concern relates to drinking water standards, whch seem unreasonably strict in some countries and practically absent in others. The price people are required to pap for their water varies with the standards.

  • In terms of teaching and learning, there are many approaches, which have been applied in the past. However, more recently, one approach has come to the forefront as a model for success. In this chapter, we will discuss the learner-centered approach, a model of learning and teaching that gives the student the choice and flexibility to learn in a way that optimizes his/her potential strengths and interests.

  • Fiber composite technology is based on taking advantage of the high strength and high stiffness of fibers, which are combined with matrix materials of similar/ dissimilar natures in various ways, creating inevitable interfaces. In fiber composites, both the fiber and the matrix retain their original physical and chemical identities, yet together they produce a combination of mechanical properties that cannot be achieved with either of the constituents acting alone, due to the presence of an interface between these two constituents.

  • Hall of Fame golfer Ben Hogan once remarked that golf is 100 percent mental and 100 percent physical, and the two factions of golf cannot and should not be separated. I agree. By its very nature, golf is both physical and mental. It also has a strong emotional component that makes it the toughest and greatest game ever created. On the professional golf tours, what separates winning golfers is the strength of their mental game and emotional resiliency.

  • The stochastic 2D Navier-Stokes equations on the torus driven by degenerate noise are studied. We characterize the smallest closed invariant subspace for this model and show that the dynamics restricted to that subspace is ergodic. In particular, our results yield a purely geometric characterization of a class of noises for which the equation is ergodic in L2 (T2 ). Unlike previous 0 works, this class is independent of the viscosity and the strength of the noise.

  • The Earth environment derives from a unique combination of factors favouring the development of various landscapes and life forms. The activity of the meteorological, geophysical or hydrological factors is characterized by variations of different amplitudes and frequencies that can provoke severe disequilibrium to a given ecosystem. Disasters can arise anywhere at the crossroads between natural hazards and human society, as a combined result of the strength of extreme events and a fragile, unprepared community....

  • Starch- and plant-protein-based glues, for example, do not have the strength of petrochemical-derived superglues. On the other hand, plant-derived chemicals have unique advantages for other uses. Recombinant proteins, for example, can be designed and produced in plants to provide tissue glues analogous to the fibrinogen that naturally forms around a flesh wound. Emerging technologies offer dramatic new capabilities to alter plant metabolic pathways, opening up unprecedented opportunities to produce high-value chemicals from renewable resources....

  • We investigated the effects on ginseng cell and ginsenoside production when macro element concentrations were manipulated in the culture media. Biomass growth was greatest in the medium supplemented with 0.5 strength NH4NO3, whereas ginsenoside accumulation was highest (6.5 mg/g DW). At levels of 1.0 strength KNO3, cell growth was maximum, but 2.0 strength of KNO3 led to the greatest ginsenoside content (6.1 mg/g DW).

  • A long-standing tenet of distributed systems is that the strength of a distributed system can grow as more hosts partic- ipate in it. Each participant may contribute data and computing resources (such as unused CPU cycles and storage) to the overall system, and the wealth of the community can scale with the number of participants. A peer-to-peer (P2P) distributed system is one in which participants rely on one another for service, rather than solely relying on dedicated and often centralized infrastructure.

  • This book deals with topics in atomic and molecular structure and dynamics that are important to astronomy. Indeed, the topics selected are of central interest to the field of astronomy, many having been initiated by the needs of understanding worlds other than ours. Except for some lunar surface material returned by the Apollo missions, and material naturally delivered to us by cosmic rays, comets, and meteors, our only access to the other worlds of our astronomical Universe is through our observations of electromagnetic radiation from them.
