Scavengers of the earth, anatomy of a vulture, flight and feeding, the life cycle of a, vulture, an uncertain future,... are the main contents of the book "Vultures animals". Invite you to consult for additional documentation in the process of teaching and learning English.
Air travel is continuing to experience the fastest growth among all modes of transport. Increasing total
fuel consumption and the potential impacts of aircraft engine emissions on the global atmosphere have
motivated the industry, scientific community, and international governments to seek various emissions
reduction options. Despite the efforts to understand and mitigate the impacts of aviation emissions, it still
remains uncertain whether proposed emissions reduction options are technologically and financially
Now-a-days, dealers of natural resources like fuel, coal etc. are facing a hard
time to keep pace with the increasing demand. At one hand, there are more cars
or motor vehicles are dominating the transport medium, on the other hand these
cars are being dominated by the fuel. As a result, the limited resources are being
quashed by the producers and dealers to satisfy this need which is leading us to
an uncertain future with having the scarcity of fuel and minerals. So, it is clear
that present trends in energy consumption, especially oil, cannot be sustained
much longer. Again,...
We used the same methodology to project the share of single-family attached, single-family
detached, multi-family, and manufactured units for each age group.
We acknowledge that the adjustment factor used to calculate the number of householders is a
simplifying one. It does not account for any subsequent changes in tastes and preferences,
much less any changes in life choice trends – e.g., living long enough to remarry and have a
second spouse after either being widowed or divorced.
However, the direction or impact these types of changes will have is uncertain.
Working on this book has not been easy. I’ve had to
plunge deep into the memories of my years of addiction,
and into the troubling emotions that I felt back then. If
you’re reading this book right now, chances are you already
have some notion of the uncomfortable feelings that substance
abuse can cause. I believe that this book can be helpful to you
and to others who have faced the incredible challenge of addiction,
so I’ve traveled back in time in order to relate to you
my experiences with drugs—mostly heroin—and how I nearly
lost my life to this devastating substance....
The goal of the defense budget is to deliver a portfolio of capabilities to meet a spectrum of uncertain future security environments. Despite progress in recent U.S. Air Force capabilities-based programming efforts, many limitations persist, and there are many disconnects between capability assessments and programming.
One of the consequences of raising children in this world is that they
make you think a lot more about the future. Because of the storms
brewing in China, the future our children now face appears to be, at
best, highly uncertain. At worst, it could be one that the philosopher
Thomas Hobbes might describe as “nasty” and “brutish”—if no
Live in Present: Forget about old worries and problem which have been creating problems over a period of time, forget that guilt you had from the past, it’s done gone, and now grave it. Don’t Think too much about how you would be in present, don’t put yourself in the shoes where you feel lack of confidence in you. Future is uncertain and when you start thinking about it, you probably don’t even know where you are heading. Take life as it comes to you.
The traditional role of traf®c engineering is to ensure that a telecommunications network has just enough capacity to meet expected demand with adequate quality of service. A critical requirement is to understand the three-way relationship between demand, capacity, and performance, each of these being quanti®ed in appropriate units. The degree to which this is possible in a future multiservice network remains uncertain, due notably to the inherent self-similarity of traf®c and the modeling dif®culty that this implies.
Modern organizations have been required to make significant transformations
in response to an accelerating rate of change in technical, social, political, and
economic forces. As a result of these changing forces, the management process
has become more difficult, requiring greater skills aimed at guiding the future
course of an organization in a rapidly evolving and uncertain world. These skills
are the essence of strategic management.
Strategic management is concerned with deciding in advance what an organization
should do in the future (strategic planning).
In today’s sluggish and uncertain economy, many people are returning
to school to prepare for a new career, one that will support them
now and into the future. The National Center for Education Statistics
(NCES) projects that enrollment will rise by 10 percent for students
under age 25 and 19 percent for students age 25 or older by 2017
(National Center for Education Statistics, 2009). Understanding
your industry and its expectations will facilitate your transition to the
workplace and support you in defining your professional role.
Second, information should be thought of as better if it reduces the uncertainty
surrounding some future cost or benefit. For instance, future liabilities are inherently
uncertain. Information that can narrow the variance on estimates of those uncertain liabilities
should be considered better information. Reduced variance is particularly valuable when
decision-makers are risk-averse, since a reduction in variance alone can lead to different
decisions when there is risk aversion.
The insured event must be specified, i.e. the event cannot be a general protection
against adverse deviations from targets, but must be explicitly or implicitly
described in the contract. Where the contract provides an option to extend cover,
this will only qualify as insurance risk at the start of the contract if the contract
specifies the terms of the extended cover. The probability that the option will be
exercised is taken into consideration when assessing the significance of the future
We live in turbulent times with a world slowly emerging from the worst economic decline in 80 years. It will take years to recover the damage. It is also a time when a new generation is emerging with a new outlook on life. The shadows of 1994 and the impact of the internet changed all and that current ways of doing things simply will not work in the future. This article discusses it and provides guidelines for coping and using it to create wealth in an uncertain and difficult future. As our personalities differ, our appetite for risk accordingly,...
VI. UNCERTAINTY 1. Uncertainty and Acting
uncertainty of the future is already implied in the very notion of action. That man acts and that the future is uncertain are by no means two independent matters. They are only two different modes of establishing one thing. We may assume that the outcome of all events
Provisions are recognized by the Company for liabilities and losses which have been
incurred as of the balance sheet date and for which the amount is uncertain but can be
reasonably estimated. Additionally, the Company records provisions for losses which are
expected to be incurred in the future but which relate to contingencies that exist as of the
balance sheet date.
In some ways, the uncertainty over supply consistency is really a form of risk
management. In the future, both petrochemical supply and renewable supply
will carry increased risk. For petrochemicals, further supply uncertainty may
arise from political changes in other world areas. For plant-derived materials,
weather may be an uncertain factor locally, while specialty plants with less
commodity type production may result in more trading uncertainty.
The several short articles herein contained were first written and published twentyfive years ago as an expression of the writer's convictions. Having come to the conclusion that conditions, in many respects, have not improved—in fact have become more alarming; and in consequence the future outlook in these most strenuous and extravagant times more uncertain, the writer was prompted to incorporate these ideals in a booklet and dedicate the same to his younger friends. G. A. BAUMAN, Quincy, Illinois. July, 1921.
These impacts are likely to increase in the future as international oil prices rise, U.S. oil
production declines, and petroleum and vehicle production become more automated.
Although exact impacts are uncertain and impossible to predict with precision, between
2010 and 2020 a million dollars shifted from fuel to general consumer expenditures is
likely to generate at least six jobs, and after 2020 at least eight jobs.
This book presents several recent advances on Evolutionary Computation, specially evolution-based optimization methods and hybrid algorithms for several applications, from optimization and learning to pattern recognition and bioinformatics. This book also presents new algorithms based on several analogies and metafores, where one of them is based on philosophy, specifically on the philosophy of praxis and dialectics.
