INSECT SYSTEMATICS: PHYLOGENY AND CLASSIﬁCATION
Because there are so many guides to the identity and classiﬁcation of birds, mammals, and ﬂowers, it is tempting to think that every organism in the living world is known. However, if we compared different books, treatments will vary, perhaps concerning the taxonomic status of a geographical.

In BBN's natural language understanding and generation system (Janus), we have used a hybrid approach to representation, employing an intensional logic for the representation of the semantics of utterances and a taxonomic language with formal semantics for specification of descriptive constants and axioms relating them. Remarkably, 99.9% of 7,000 vocabulary items in our natural language applications could be adequately axiomatlzed in the taxonomic language.
(USGS) is to assess the quantity and quality of the
natural resources of the Nation and to provide
information that will assist resource managers and
policymakers at Federal, State, and local levels in
making sound decisions. Assessment of water-quality
conditions and trends is an important part of this
One of the greatest challenges faced by waterresources
scientists is acquiring reliable information
that will guide the use and protection of the Nation’s
There are over 881,000 jobs within the LCEGS sector, with almost half of these in the Emerging Low
The products and services employing the largest number of people are all in the Emerging Low Carbon
Carbon industries. UK employment levels in the LCEGS sector are broadly in line with our global LCEGS
market share, and with employment levels for other developed economies. Those employed in the
specialist part of the LCEGS sector number just over 445,000.
Subsequently, the 1996 Nepal Family Health Survey, the 2001 Nepal Demographic and Health
Survey and the 2006 Nepal Demographic and Health surveys were conducted. This trend report
discusses key findings from these three DHS surveys in Nepal. All three Nepal DHS surveys sampled
nationally representative populations, were conducted by the same organization (New ERA Ltd.), and
managed by the same core group of survey personnel.
The problem of service composition is viewed by many as the \holy grail"
in Services Computing. There have been many attempts by researchers from
various domains to perform research on this highly relevant and timely sub-
ject. One of the goals in Semantic Web research has been to provide con-
cepts, methods, and tools to cater for automatic composition of services on
One key distinction is that business angels invest their own funds, unlike VC funds, who primarily
invest funds committed by others (e.g. institutional investors). For this reason they typically invest in
companies with which they can maintain close contacts (OECD, 2006).
Furthermore, typically companies that receive BA financing are smaller (i.e. in terms of turnover –
see also table 1 later in this text) than VC backed companies. Most of the companies that receive
BA financing, do not receive VC financing at the same time.
The Joint Forum of banking, securities, and insurance supervisors has been working to
enhance mutual understanding of issues related to the supervision of firms operating in each
of the respective sectors. These efforts reflect the development of financial conglomerates,
the increasing globalization of financial markets and the development of new financial
When they discussed support required from their executive director
and board actions related to effective governance, board chair
interviewees put them into the context of how they could help or
hinder the executive director and operations. For example, the
questions for discussion at the end of this book include, “Does
either party ever feel that the board is getting too involved in
Given the range of treatment modalities and their serious side effects, men with prostate cancer
who are candidates for radical treatment should have the opportunity to discuss their treatment
options with a specialist surgical oncologist and a specialist clinical oncologist.
Men presenting with symptoms consistent with radiation-induced enteropathy should be fully
investigated (including using flexible sigmoidoscopy) to exclude inflammatory bowel disease or
malignancy of the large bowel and to ascertain the nature of the radiation injury.
Benthic algae have been intensively studied, especially over the past
two decades. This intensity has been stimulated by the widespread recognition
that benthic algae are ideal indicators of the health of many, if not
most, aquatic ecosystems. With this book we hope to synthesize this vital
area of research and share its essence with our colleagues and students. We
started with an outline of the myriad abiotic and biotic determinants of
benthic algal ecology.
Students should note that Congress generally prohibits the use of appropriated funds
to employ non-citizens within the United States. That restriction is discussed on the USAJobs
Web site. Students who are not U.S. citizens are eligible for the student observer program.
However, they should recognize that they are generally not eligible to be hired as employees
We have a limited number of slots and cannot hire all of the students who would be
successful interns. Students are welcome to decline our offers.
The verification of care needs is the responsibility of the long-term care insurance funds. The
funds entrust the task of identifying, verifying and assessing the severity of care needs to the
Medical Review Board of the Statutory Health Insurance Funds, which is primarily made up
of doctors and nurses. The assessment takes place in the home of the insured person provided
they give their consent. If such an assessment is not performed the insurance funds are
entitled to refuse to pay benefits.
One problem with this teaching demonstration, however, was the fact that
the 16mm print of Caligari had no musical soundtrack, something that the stu-
dents had become accustomed to having with their silent ﬁlms during the semes-
ter. This factor would ultimately lead to subsequent demonstrations testing the
notion of whether modern electronic music could be used to enhance student
engagement with silent ﬁlms in the classroom.
We will refer to embeddings providing a guarantee akin to that of Lemma 1.1 as JL-
embeddings. In the last few years, such embeddings have been used in solving a variety of
problems. The idea is as follows. By providing a low-dimensional representation of the data,
JL-embeddings speed up certain algorithms dramatically, in particular algorithms whose run-time
depends exponentially in the dimension of the working space. (For a number of practical
problems the best-known algorithms indeed have such behavior.
The tapping of the credit lines were happening at
precisely the moment that the risk constraints were
binding harder for the banking sector. Tighter value
at risk constraints translated to higher shadow value
of capital and hence to the desired contraction of
balance sheets. Contracting balance sheets of hedge
funds and other holders of ABCPs led to a fall in
the demand for the liabilities issued by SIVs and
conduits. In late July and early August, SIVs and
conduits began to experience difﬁ culties in rolling
over their short term liabilities.
Worker flexibility is key given the dynamic nature of the U.S. labor market and ongoing
technological change. In 2003, for example, a quarter of American workers were in jobs that
were not even listed among the Census Bureau’s Occupation codes in 1967, and technological
change has only accelerated since then. Environmental-related occupations – which are expected
to experience tremendous growth over the next decade – did not exist in comparable data prior to
