Hibernate is an amazing piece of software. With a little experience and the power of Java 5
annotations, you can build a complex database-backed system with disturbing ease. Once
you have built a system using Hibernate, you will never want to go back to the traditional
While Hibernate is incredibly powerful, it presents a steep learning curve when you first
encounter it—steep learning curves are actually a good thing, as they impart profound insight
once you have scaled them. Yet gaining that insight takes some perseverance and assistance.
[ Team LiB ] Using Advanced Find Because I have several contacts whose names are Becky and correspond with other Beckys, I have quite a few search results to sort through when I use Find. I could search for Becky using her last name also, but it would miss the items in which only her first name was used. In this case, it would be better to use Advanced Find because I would be able to use additional criteria in my search and could narrow the results. Advanced Find has the capability to use multiple conditions so that you can...
In this paper, we propose a novel method for semi-supervised learning of nonprojective log-linear dependency parsers using directly expressed linguistic prior knowledge (e.g. a noun’s parent is often a verb). Model parameters are estimated using a generalized expectation (GE) objective function that penalizes the mismatch between model predictions and linguistic expectation constraints.
Studies on quantitative fit analysis of precontoured fracture fixation plates emerged within the last few years and therefore, there is a wide research gap in this area. Quantitative fit assessment facilitates the measure of the gap between a fracture fixation plate and the underlying bone, and specifies the required plate fit criteria. For clinicallymeaningful fit assessment outcome, it is necessary to establish the appropriate criteria and parameter.
Given the enormous, ever-growing, and constantly-changing size, shape, and consistency of the internet and the use that is made of it means that methodological issues abound when attempting to produce measurements of traffic and content. Yet even given the limitations of the data available, Envisional believes that the estimates produced in this report are more accurate than any that have been published before.
School authorities will use the following Special education coding criteria 2005 2006: Mild/Moderate (including Gifted and Talented) - (ECS to Grade 12) Severe (ECS to Grade 12) to determine whether a child or student has a disabling condition delay or is gifted and talented. These children or students require an adapted or modified educational program to their special education needs. An Individualized Program Plan (IPP) is mandatory for any child or student with special education needs who is identified and oded using these criteria.
This paper presents a semi-supervised training method for linear-chain conditional random ﬁelds that makes use of labeled features rather than labeled instances. This is accomplished by using generalized expectation criteria to express a preference for parameter settings in which the model’s distribution on unlabeled data matches a target distribution. We induce target conditional probability distributions of labels given features from both annotated feature occurrences in context and adhoc feature majority label assignment. ...
Reducing language model (LM) size is a critical issue when applying a LM to realistic applications which have memory constraints. In this paper, three measures are studied for the purpose of LM pruning. They are probability, rank, and entropy. We evaluated the performance of the three pruning criteria in a real application of Chinese text input in terms of character error rate (CER). We first present an empirical comparison, showing that rank performs the best in most cases. We also show that the high-performance of rank lies in its strong correlation with error rate. ...
Use of ABHPs is surging but must be part
of a broader strategy to be effective
Account-based health plans can be an important
element in an organization’s health benei t
management if the right incentives and employee
education are attached. Today, 59% of companies
have an ABHP in place, with another 11% expectin
to add one by 2013. But ABHPs will not necessaril
result in lower costs without signii cant enrollment
Our results show that employers that take a
comprehensive approach to ABHPs (e.g.
n this volume, Murray Rothbard has given us a comprehen-
sive history of money and banking in the United States, from
colonial times to World War II, the first to explicitly use the
interpretive framework of Austrian monetary theory. But even
aside from the explicitly Austrian theoretical framework under-
girding the historical narrative, this book does not “look” or
“feel” like standard economic histories as they have been writ-
ten during the past quarter of a century, under the influence of
the positivistic “new economic history” or “cliometrics.”...
Econometricians, as well as other scientists, are engaged in learning from their
experience and data - a fundamental objective of science. Knowledge so obtained
may be desired for its own sake, for example to satisfy our curiosity about aspects
of economic behavior and/or for use in solving practical problems, for example
to improve economic policymaking. In the process of learning from experience
and data, description and generalization both play important roles.
Organized primarily by sensor application, the book is cross-referenced with indices of sensor technology. Manufacturers are listed by sensor type. The other contributors and I have attempted to provide a useful handbook with technical explanations that are clear, simple and thorough. We will also attempt to keep it updated as the technology advances.

The first decade of the 21st century has been labeled by some as the “Sensor Decade.”
With a dramatic increase in sensor R&D and applications over the past 15 years, sensors
are certainly poised on the brink of a revolution similar to that experienced in
microcomputers in the 1980s. Just in automobiles alone, sensing needs are growing
by leaps and bounds, and the sensing technologies used are as varied as the applications.
Tremendous advances have been made in sensor technology and many more are
on the horizon....
Structural Testing is used to verify the static strength, or fatigue strength of a component by applying measured loads to the test item. Testing can be done to failure, to contractual requirements or to validate finite element model predictions. DTB has successfully completed thousands of structural tests on items ranging in size and complexity from simple coupons to entire aircraft.
Fatigue Testing is carried out with the objective of determining the relationship between the stress range and the number of times it can be applied before causing failure....
This Section of Part 2 of BS 6100 has been prepared under the direction of the
Basic Data and Performance Criteria for Civil Engineering and Building
Structures Standards Policy Committee.
A general introduction to and explanation of this glossary is given in Part 0 of
BS 6100, which itemizes the Parts, Sections and Subsections into which this
glossary is divided and provides a general alphabetical index of all the terms in
the Sections and Subsections already published.
Fuzzy control is a practical alternative for a variety of challenging control applications
since it provides a convenient method for constructing nonlinear controllers
via the use of heuristic information. Such heuristic information may come from
an operator who has acted as a “human-in-the-loop” controller for a process. In
the fuzzy control design methodology, we ask this operator to write down a set of
rules on how to control the process, then we incorporate these into a fuzzy controller
that emulates the decision-making process of the human.
In recent years, earthquake damage caused by the massive earthquake that happened in many
countries. For example, more than 250,000 people have been killed by the earthquake Haiti
January 2010. In addition, more than 15,000 people have been killed by the Japanese Tohoku
The earthquake and Japan Tohoku coast was devastated by a large tidal wave
Designed mainly for class room use in connection with one of the introductory manuals on the subject of
Money and Banking or of Money and Currency, this volume, in itself, lays no claim to completeness. Where
its use is contemplated the problems of emphasis and proportion are, accordingly, to be solved by the
selection of one or another of the available texts, or by the choice of supplementary lecture topics and
