The book embraces a wide spectrum of problems falling under the concepts of "Quantum optics" and "Laser experiments". These actively developing branches of physics are of great significance both for theoretical understanding of the quantum nature of optical phenomena and for practical applications.
In 29 states and the District of Columbia, renewable portfolio standard (RPS) policies require
that utilities or load-serving entities include a certain percentage of renewable energy within their
power generation mix; the percentages required and eligibility requirements vary among the
states. Eligible renewable energy may either be purchased by load-serving entities to meet their
RPS requirements, or may be bought by consumers or businesses wanting to buy renewable
energy on a voluntary basis.
In this essay we propose a model capturing the major components of the
interaction existing between the advertising and audience markets. Our main
objective consists in analysing how the linkage between these markets shapes
the TV-programs selected at equilibrium, when these programs follow from
oligopolistic competition in the TV-broadcasting sector. This analysis is de-
veloped in the framework of a three-stage sequential game involving two com-
panies, their TV-viewers and the advertising agencies buying ad-spots to be
inserted in their programs.

Content marketing is all the rage. In a distracted world, where consumers are bombarded with advertising and overwhelmed by media and device choices, brands are searching for a new ways to connect—ideally over the long term. And many marketers are turning to content with varying degrees of success.
Frequently asked questions, or FAQs are listed questions and answers, all supposed to be frequently asked in some context, and pertaining to a particular topic. Since the acronym FAQ originated in textual media, its pronunciation varies; "fack," "fax," "facts," and "F.A.Q." are commonly heard. Depending on usage, the term may refer specifically to a single frequently asked question, or to an assembled list of many questions and their answers.
A new type of semiconductor laser is studied, in which injected carriers in the active region
are quantum mechanically confined in localized finite self-assembled wire-like quantumdash
(Qdash) structures that are varied in sizes and compositions. Effects of such carrier
distribution and quasi three-dimensional density of states contribute to a quasisupercontinuum
interband lasing characteristics, which is a new laser design platform as
compared to continuous broad emission spectrum generated by nonlinear media pumped
with ultrashort laser pulse....

Clinical Presentation and Differential Diagnosis Most head and neck cancers occur after age 50, although these cancers can appear in younger patients, including those without known risk factors. The manifestations vary according to the stage and primary site of the tumor. Patients with nonspecific signs and symptoms in the head and neck area should be evaluated with a thorough otolaryngologic exam, particularly if symptoms persist longer than 2â€“4 weeks.
Cancer of the nasopharynx typically does not cause early symptoms.
This report focuses on a set of tools to address youth exposure that has been largely ignored: State laws that restrict youth expo-
sure to alcohol advertising in both measured and unmeasured media venues. States have systems already in place for administer-
ing alcohol advertising regulations, usually (but not always) housed in an Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) state agency. Alcohol
producers, distributors, and retailers must obtain state licenses to do business in a state.
The last edition of the report came out soon after the onset of the global
financial crisis, leaving out little scope for incorporating a detailed analysis of
its impact on the media industry. We have tried to more than compensate for
that in the present edition, providing a much more focused assessment of the
media industry against the backdrop of the financial meltdown. The impact of
the crisis, needless to say, varies from country to country, depending on the
extent to which each market is exposed to global markets.
Rucht (forthcoming) argues that stark generalizations about media and movements are difficult to support, as different protest eras have been characterized by different media patterns. Gamson (2001) observes that media coverage of collective action movements even varies considerably from issue to issue. Finally, media access also varies with the public communication strategies and organization models adopted by cause movements, as indicated in a comparative analysis of abortion discourse in Germany and the United States (Feree, Gamson, Gerhards, and Rucht, 2002).
Scope of license
The extent of the license that you grant will vary based on the type of
work involved. The rights may be limited to use on certain products,
in particular media, in a certain territory, and/or for a speciﬁ ed time
period. Other basic limitations include whether or not you will allow the
client to modify your work in any way, or to turn around and license the
work to a third party without your permission. If the client later decides
that they need additional rights, they will have to come back to you,
renegotiate and pay additional...
While effective media communication always aims to strengthen trust, its specific objectives
can vary. The intention in some situations may be to proactively raise awareness of actual or
potential risk, or to inform people prior to an emergency so they are better prepared to
respond. In other cases, it may be a more reactive response to an existing situation. Other
purposes include informing individuals and disseminating information on how to mitigate
the effects of an emergency. In yet other cases, the purpose may be to build consensus and
engage people in a public dialogue....
Open issue trackers are a type of social media that has received relatively little attention from the text-mining community. We investigate the problems inherent in learning to triage bug reports from time-varying data. We demonstrate that concept drift is an important consideration. We show the effectiveness of online learning algorithms by evaluating them on several bug report datasets collected from open issue trackers associated with large open-source projects. We make this collection of data publicly available. ...
