  • Although listening has played a crucial role in foreign language learning, it has often been neglected by instructors (Osada, 2004). Nevertheless, listening examination has been included in most English proficiency examinations, such as TOFEL, TOEIC and GEPT, which implies the importance of listening.

At the same time, the extraordinary worldwide rise of as- set managers as financial intermediaries has created new opportunities for funds. Responding to these and other trends, the Institute readied a new initiative —ICI Global— launched early in fiscal year 2012.

  • You would turn to your spectator and announce, or write down on a bit of paper, “I’ve got as many matches as you, then an extra 3 more. And then just enough left to make your number up to 14.” With the prediction made, it’s time for the spectator to count their matches. You then count yours out and your prediction is proven true. Say they have seven matches. From your pile, you count out seven matches and put them aside. Part one of your prediction is true: you have as many matches as them. You then count off your...

  • The second argument is related to proprietary information and specific human capital. By concentrating ownership, decision rights can be given to individuals who possess specific knowledge (Jensen and Meckling, 1992; Christie, Joye, and Watts, 1993). One benefit of co-locating decision rights with specific knowledge is that the leakage of the specific knowledge to competitors is prevented and the transferring cost of the specific knowledge is avoided. This benefit is great in East Asia where political lobbying activities are common and lucrative.

  • After the state identified a nutrient problem (nitrogen and phosphorous) in the basin, it recommended a strategy to limit nutrient discharges from a group of point source dischargers. Subsequently, some of the dischargers formed an association and proposed an alternative strategy that included pollutant trading. The strategy, approved by the state, contains a total, allowable discharge level for the association that, in turn, allocates individual discharge limits among its members. If ...

  • A specific example in which the theory developed here is quite crucial is the analysis of locomotion for the snakeboard, which we study in some detail in Section 8.4. The snakeboard is a modified version of a skateboard in which locomotion is achieved by using a coupling of the nonholonomic constraints with the symmetry properties of the system. For that system, traditional analysis of the complete dynamics of the system does not readily explain the mechanism of locomotion.

  • he explains that loss of the fluid-attaining proteoglycans (Pg) inside the cartilage collagen network is the earliest indicator of osteoarthritis. loss of Pgs increases the water permeability of cartilage and decreases the tissue stiffness, leading researchers to propose proteoglycans as an important marker for the early detection of osteoarthritis. To precisely determine the Pg content in cartilage, lu is investigating a mechanical testing approach with the aid of advanced theoretical modeling.
