In modern agriculture, farmers continuously face a battle to achieve products in high yields
and better quality to feed an ever increasing world population (Stetter & Lieb, 2000). The
optimization of agriculture techniques demands, along with other requirements, the
application of crop protection agents to control a variety of diseases and pests, among which
are weeds. Weeds compete with crops for nutrients, water, and physical space, may harbor
insect and disease pests, and are thus capable of greatly undermining both crop quality and
Today's mobile devices have GPS and standard APIs to give you access to coordinates—but what can you do with that data? With this concise book, application developers learn how to work with location data quickly and easily, using Node.js, CouchDB, and other open source tools and libraries.
Node.js makes it simple to run event code on the Web, and the CouchDB document-oriented database lets you store location data and perform complex queries on it quickly.
The Family Health Survey sampling frame consists of all Wisconsin households with a working landline
telephone. In 2008, the sample design for selecting telephone numbers for the survey divided the state
into eight sample strata, seven of which were defined geographically. Five strata were comprised of
regional county groupings and two strata were defined as Dane and Brown counties. Telephone area
code/prefix combinations from these seven strata were randomly sampled at varying rates, designed to
provide a useable sample for several parts of the state.
Among the methods to control weeds, the use of herbicides or weed killers has become the
most reliable and least expensive tool for weed control in places where highly mechanized
agriculture is practiced. Since the introduction of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) in
1946, several classes of herbicides were developed that are effective for broad-spectrum of
weed control (Böger et al, 2002; Cobb, 1992; Ware, 2000).
It is well know that various compounds can interfere with photosynthetic electron transport....
Real asset investors also need a longer investment horizon, as investments in
real assets normally require longer commitment of capital. Ship funds typically
have a life of 15 to 20 years; aircraft funds more than 15 years. From the
investor's point of view, it is therefore important to be able to assess the
potential of the investment vehicle reliably. In addition, private investors mainly
invest larger amounts. In 2011, the average subscription for investments in
closed-end funds across all asset classes in Germany was EUR 30,575 (up
from just over EUR 26,000 in 2010).
In today’s networked economy the goal is the availability and productive use of informa-
tion. The marketplace will not tolerate the cost and inconvenience of proprietary and
competing technologies. Customer demands and competition drive companies to the
higher efficiencies that networking provides. Competitors are driven to work together on
open standards in order to enable networking: sharing resources and knowledge to create
new opportunities and enable new services.

A large majority of the Wisconsin household population is non-Hispanic white (86%), according to
estimates from the 2008 Family Health Survey. Six percent of the population is non-Hispanic black
or African American, and 5 percent is Hispanic or Latino. One percent of the population is non-
Hispanic American Indian, 1 percent is non-Hispanic Asian, less than 0.5 percent is non-Hispanic
other, and 1 percent is composed of non-Hispanic members of two or more racial groups (Figure 9).
This section describes characteristics of the Wisconsin household population subgroups for whom health
statistics are presented in this report. All of the characteristics described here are estimates from the
2008 Family Health Survey weighted data. The Family Health Survey is considered to be representative
of all people who live in Wisconsin households. Survey results can be used to describe household
residents, keeping in mind that survey estimates will differ from results of a complete count, such as a
There are varied possibilities for investment in real assets. One of the most
liquid segments, which is accessible through the financial markets, is the
commodity market. As well as precious metals, investors also focus on industrial
and agricultural raw materials. It is relatively easy for investors to inform them-
selves about these homogenous markets. However, in this study we want to
concentrate on real assets that are mainly not traded on financial markets but
for which fund solutions or direct investment vehicles are dominant.

The barbute is an exclusively Italian form
that developed from the basinet, as may be seen
in the drawings on the following pages. The basi-
net derived in turn from the conical Norman
casque, which in turn had its prototype in bar-
barian and Near Eastern examples. The design
of medieval armor evolved out of combat experi-
ence; as the wearer suffered injuries in unpro-
tected areas, additions and modifications were
made in his armor,...
The primary purpose of this study is to measure the level of disproportionate impact
between credit scores and race/ethnicity, and credit scores and socioeconomic status.
Disproportionate impact is defined as the bivariate relationship between credit scores and
the independent variable of interest, such as race/ethnicity or income. That is, for purposes
of measuring the level of disproportionate impact, no attempt is made to control for possible
confounding variables, or factors that might explain a disproportionate impact should one

In sending and receiving messages, parties are often interested in three prop-
erties of the communication other than conﬁdentiality. Integrity means that the
sender and receiver should be able to verify that a message has not been modiﬁed
in transit. As a consequence, this means that an intruder should not be able to sub-
stitue a false message for a legitimate one without being detected. Authentication
means that the receiving party should be able to ascertain the origin of a message.
