Herbs and traditional medicines are being extensively used for healthcare in
almost all the countries since times immemorial. Ancient religious texts are replete
with references on the use of natural products with medicinal properties. Because of
local beliefs and practices and also from cost considerations herbal medicines remain
a popular mode of treatment in the developing countries. Even in the industrialised
society the rising cost of prescription drugs and ensuing side effects of the treatment
make it highly attractive to use the traditional medicine particularly for minor ailments....
Europe has many market niches where traditional forms of production are still
dominant. The geographic variety of Europe certainly stimulates the existence
of diverse niches with a clear local colour and identity. Even in the age of mass
production and consumption such pockets of often place-bound products have
not disappeared. Rather, they are enjoying a comeback, as the public at large is
increasingly looking for goods with indigenous or specific qualities.
In many parts of the world, where medicines are not readily available
or affordable, the public continue to rely on medicines used traditionally
in their cultures. At the same time, affluent consumers in the industrialized
world are spending their own money on healthcare approaches
that fall outside what has been considered mainstream medicine. A growing
body of national and international studies highlight the reality that
there is exponential growth of global interest in and use of traditional (i.e.
indigenous), complementary and alternative medicine (TCAM).

For a long period of time the Nordic countries saw themselves or were viewed
upon as something different from Europe. The Nordic institutions and the long
tradition of Nordic co-operation in different forms could also be seen as a hallmark
of the joint actions of “non-European Nordic countries”. In a historic perspective,
the states have experienced war between and domination of each other.
However, since almost 200 years the Nordic countries have been a peaceful area
in that respect, in spite of great political-institutional changes.
Traditional Information Extraction (IE) takes a relation name and hand-tagged examples of that relation as input. Open IE is a relationindependent extraction paradigm that is tailored to massive and heterogeneous corpora such as the Web. An Open IE system extracts a diverse set of relational tuples from text without any relation-speciﬁc input. How is Open IE possible? We analyze a sample of English sentences to demonstrate that numerous relationships are expressed using a compact set of relation-independent lexico-syntactic patterns, which can be learned by an Open IE system. ...

It follows in the tradition of the Supplement to the Oxford English Dictionary in attempting to record the history of some recent additions to the language, but,unlike the Supplement, it is necessarily very selective in the words,phrases, and meanings whose stories it sets out to tell and it stands as an independent ork, unrelated (except in the resources it draws upon)to the Oxford English Dictionary...
