These are impressive programs and important accomplishments. Yet, if the present course of action is followed for the rest of the decade, it will lead at best to a relatively slow rate of improvement in ambient air quality. (Dr. Burton Klein of Caltech refers to this type of strategy as "slow history".) According to our predictions (Section 11/2) the average number of days per year on which various California State standards are exceeded at some loca- tion in the South Coast Air Basin will still be discouragingly high by the year 1975, as shown in Table 1. Even as late as the year 1980, thirteen years after the passage of the Mulford-Carrell Act, the maximum daily one-hour average oxidant level (including ozone) of 0.10 ppm, chosen so that it lies "below that associated with aggravation of respiratory diseases,"2 will be exceeded an average of 85 days per year at some location in the South Coast Air Basin. The two principal reasons for this slow rate of improvement in ambient air quality are: (1) the slow rate of attrition of "dirty" old cars (about 7% of all cars "die" each year in California), and the slow birth rate of new "cleaner" cars (about 11 % of the car population per year); (2) the IUntil 1970 exhaust emission standards were adopted only for new light-duty motor vehicles under 6000 pounds gross weight. In that year the ARB establisb.ed standards and test procedures for hydrocarbons, oxides of nitrogen and carbon monoxide exhaust emissions from heavy-duty, diesel-powered and gasoline-powered vehicles over 6000 pounds gross weight, to become effective

## SMOG A REPORT TO THE PEOPLE BY LESTER LEES MARK BRALY MAHLON EASTERLING ROBERT FISHER POTX

A. The Appropriate Concept: Internalization of Risks The argument for risk internalization doesn't rest simply on its theoretical appeal. The fact of the matter is, it isn't only an interesting theory: it works. For one thing, it has played a major role in the economic development of this country. Econometric analysis has revealed that during the period 1919-1957 only about one-eighth of the increase of the gross national pro- duct per worker can be explained by the increase in capital per worker- leaving seven-eighths to be explained as a mysterious new form of energy called "technological change." There is good reason for believing that tech- nological competition played a very important role in producing this "new" form of energy. Furthermore, it can b<; stated that technological competition played a major role in making this country the undisputed technological leader of the world from, roughly, the beginning until the middle of this century. Starting in agriculture, shortly after the Civil War, the concept of technological competition soon spread to industry. There are substantial reasons for believing that, in part, the U.S. enjoyed a comparative advantage in trading with the rest of the world because of the role technological competi- tion played and, in part, because of broader sociological factors which fav- ored a highly pragmatic society adept at dealing with conflicts between theory and practice.

assignments. The statements are enclosed in a PROCESS block, and are executed sequentially. A simple example of a behavioral VHDL code for a 2-input multiplexer was shown in Figure 1.5. 3.7.1 Structural BCD to 7-Segment Decoder Figure 3.13 shows the structural VHDL code for the BCD to 7-segment decoder based on the circuit shown in Figure 3.12. The code starts with declaring and defining all the components needed in the circuit. For this decoder circuit, only basic gates, such as the NOT gate, 2-input AND, 3-input AND, etc., are used. The ENTITY statement is used to declare all these components, and the ARCHITECTURE statement is used to define the operation of these components. Since we are only using simple gates, defining these components using the dataflow model is the simplest. For more complex components, as we will see in later chapters, we want to choose the model that is best suited for the information that we have available for the circuit. The reason why the code shown in Figure 3.13 is structural is not because of how these components are defined, but rather on how these components are connected together to form the enclosing entity; in this case, the bcd entity. Notice that the LIBRARY and USE statements need to be repeated for every ENTITY declaration.

## UNDERSTANDING AND APPLYING MACHINE VISION PART 3 POTX

Figure 6.1 Three dimensional color system (courtesy of Hunter Lab). Page 85 Hue corresponds to color (blue, red, etc.), intensity is the lightness value, and saturation is the distance from lightness per hue. For a monochromatic source of light, our perception of hue is directly dependent on wavelength. However, in normal environments, objects of a certain hue, say, red, do not reflect just the light of a single wavelength but rather a broad spectrum that has a distribution different from that of the white light. Different hues are also obtained by mixing colors, for example, green from blue and yellow, even though the mixed light may contain no green wavelength. Colors are synthesized from a mixture of three primary colors. Commonly used primary colors are red, green, and blue. These need not be monochromatic but may have a wide spectrum distribution of light intensity. Television cameras, as with the eye, do not measure the perceived attributes of intensity, hue, and saturation directly. Instead, the measured attributes correspond to the intensity of the three primary-color components in the viewed surface.

## A STUDY ON CODE SWITCHING TECHNIQUES USED IN TRANSLATING ENGLISH TERMS AND VIETNAMESE EQUIVALENTS IN ELECTRONICS

- on a radio, in films, in periodical journals, or in advertisements etc. This language contact at some point allows English to be mixed in both spoken and written form in the TL. Accordingly, it becomes a students’ favor when combining two languages of different grammar systems in a same speech. This phenomenon is codeswitching, a by-product of bilingualism. Thus, what is so called CS? Is it a mixing of language free of grammatical structures and syntax? According to Nguyen Van Khang (1999:224), CS is the usage of two or more than two variants of linguistics in a conversation. Besides that, a numbers of CS definitions from different scholars also show various aspects of this CS phenomenon. At the grammatical level, CS is analyzed with its constituents and inserted at unconscious points in a sentence without having effect on grammatical structures as well as natural fluency in the utterance. Poplack (1980: 583) considers CS as the alternate use of two language codes in a fully grammatical way, within a single discourse, the same sentence or constituent; whereas Woolford (1983) views code-switched sentences as resulting from a mixture of phrase structure rules extracted from the two languages. Also, Chana (1984) describes codeswitching as the juxtaposition within the same speech exchange of passages of speech belonging to two different grammatical systems or subsystems. In terms of linguistic competence, applying CS phenomenon in an utterance shows the degree of developing students’ linguistic competence in their learning two languages that users use CS to attain two things i.e. filling lexical gaps and creating other multiple communicative targets (Gysels 1992). Accordingly, Luisa Duran (cited in Valdes- Fallis 1997) defines CS as the use of two languages simultaneously or interchangeably. As well, Gumperz (1982) describes codeswitching as discourse exchanges, which form a single unitary interaction while Sridhar (1980) assumes that there is a basic language in a bilingual discourse and proposes the terminology of guest and host languages to describe code-switched utterances. In fact, CS usually occurs unconsciously in the utterances and bilingual students are unaware of what is happening to their new mixed speech. This explains why CS is a discursive issue in the linguistic forum. Also, major types of CS including inter-sentential, intra -sentential (Poplack 1980) decide ways to insert items in target utterances. If intra-sentential refers to codeswitching between constituents within a sentence, then inter- sentential CS is switching between sentences. Below are illustrations for these two main CS types in Vietnamese

## Phytochemical and thin layer chromatographic evaluation of Swertia Chirayita buch.-Hams. Ex Wall at different developmental stages

Swertia chirayita (family Gentianaceae), imperative medicinal plant in Indian system of medicine known for its bitter principles. However, due to its high demand and scarcity due to its extinction, it is being frequently adulterated with other species of Swertia which are more readily available. At present the similar species of Swertia are marketed as „chirayita‟ which is affecting the potency of the drug. Our studies focused on evaluating Swertia chirayita by comparison of its physicochemical characteristics and TLC fingerprinting profile in Chloroform:Methanol:Water as solvent employing amarogentin as a reference marker to distinguish the crude herb chirayita from its adulterants. The study revealed methanol soluble fraction of Swertia species showed presence of amarogentin (major chemical constituent) in the raw material taken and thus can be further micropropagated on large scale to meet industrial demand.

## BASIC MARKETING: A GLOBAL−MANAGERIAL APPROACH CHAPTER 18 PPT

Full-line pricing is setting prices for a whole line of products. How to do this depends on which of two basic situations a ﬁrm is facing. In one case, all products in the company’s line are aimed at the same general tar- get market, which makes it important for all prices and value to be logically related. This is a common approach with shopping products. A producer of TV sets might offer several models with different features at different prices to give its target cus- tomers some choice. The difference among the prices and beneﬁts should appear reasonable when the target customers are evaluating them. Customer perceptions can be important here. A low-priced item, even one that is a good value at that price, may drag down the image of the higher end of the line. Alternatively, one item that consumers do not see as a good value may spill over to how they judge other products in the line.

Ineffectual reading typically leaves out visually constructed imagery from the thought-stream. As a result the reader has a poor memory and poor contextual analysis skills. Without imagery to 'reality test one's comprehension, one may pass a totally anomalous word and fail to notice that it does not fit. Once the reader has a richly detailed internal picture, which includes colour, sound and movement, he will no longer be able to read past words and concepts that obviously do not make sense, because these will seem strange in the picture or movie that he has made. For example, a student reads: 'The child was made to do the maths problem in front of the class upon the skateboard.'

## DATA ACQUISITION PART 2 PPTX

As regards bandpass signals, which are characterized by a low ratio of bandwidth to carrier frequency and are peculiar to many digital communication systems, a much less strict condition applies. In particular, bandpass signals can be alias-free sampled at a rate f s greater than twice their bandwidth B (Kohlenberg, 1953). It is worth noting, however, that this is only a necessary condition. It is indeed possible to alias-free sample bandpass signals at a rate fs much lower than 2 f max, but such rate has to be chosen very carefully; it has been shown in (Brown, 1980; Vaughan et al., 1991; De Paula & Pieper, 1992; Tseng, 2002) that aliasing can occur if fs is chosen outside certain ranges. Moreover, particular attention has to be paid, as bandpass sampling can imply a degradation of the signal-to-noise ratio (Vaughan et al., 1991). Some recent papers have also focused on frequency shifting induced by bandpass sampling in more detail (Angrisani et al. 2004; Diez et al., 2005), providing analytical relations for establishing the final central frequency of the discrete-time signal, which digital receivers need to know (Akos et al., 1999) and determining the minimum admissible value of fs that is submultiple of a fixed sample rate (Betta et al., 2009).

## METAPHOR THESIS

Other ancient thinkers also used the term “ornament”, but when they did, they either omitted the metaphor from their field (as Aristotle, who said that any name can be provincialized, be it metaphor or ornament; and as Quintilian, who distinguished between “ornaments of language” and “stylistic devices”, separating them into two separate categories. Quintillian shows that only the following qualities of language can be its ornaments: purity, vitality and clarity. He defined an ornament as follows: “an expression cannot be called an ornament of language if it is only clear and plausible. The first step to the perfection of an expression is to grasp with our mind its object; then it is necessary for one to be able to depict it by means of the word, and the third step is to give it decorous shine, so, this is, truly, an ornament”. ) or they expanded it over the field of the stylistic device, as Cicero. The common point is that in both cases, the notion of the “ornament” was attributed a positive semantic content.

ITT Industries, Inc. a global engineering and manufacturing com- pany with leading positions in the markets of Fluid Technology Motion and Flow Control, is a great example of a company that successfully revealed and removed its “blinders”. One division of the company is the world’s premier supplier of pumps, systems and services to move, control and treat water and other fluids. It is moreover a major supplier of sophisticated military defense sys- tems, and provides advanced technical and operational services to a broad range of government agencies. ITT Industries also produces industrial components for a number of other markets, including transportation, construction and aerospace. In 1995, ITT Industries gained independence from ITT Corporation and organized itself around three distinct divisions – Automotive, Defense & Electronics and Fluid Technology. 15 Despite the fact that its market offerings are targeted at relatively small groups of prospects, the company launched a million dollar branding campaign targeted at the gen- eral public in 1998. The reason was an identity problem that might not have been effectively uncovered if the company had only taken an internal perspective.

## AN OUTLINE OF THE HISTORY OF ECONOMIC THOUGHT CHAPTER 9 PPT

9.6. The New Keynesian Macroeconomics 9.6.1. A distant Hicksian background Perhaps this is the right place to say something about the ideas developed by John Hicks after his ‘conversion’ around the middle of the 1960s—a conversion which requires a more in-depth reinterpretation by historians than is possible in an outline such as ours. However, it is already possible to see that it must have been much more drastic than it seemed at ﬁrst sight, a conversion that induced the great neoclassical economist to judge as ‘a piece of rubbish’ the theses on the functional distribution of income which he had himself formulated in 1932 in the Theory of Wages (theses which are still today taught in the orthodox economic textbooks). That same conversion led him to reconsider the general theoretical signiﬁcance of methodological individualism and the hypothesis of individual maxim- izing behaviour, besides inducing him to criticize the interpretation of Keynes based on his old IS-LM model. The model was rejected basically for two reasons: ﬁrst, because the role played by liquidity preference, as Keynes intended it, in the determination of the dynamics of employment cannot be adequately understood in a static temporary equilibrium model, such as the IS-LM ; second, because it makes no sense to determine the macroeconomic equilibrium by means of two curves, one of which, the IS , expresses a condition of ﬂow equilibrium and the other, the LM , a con- dition of stock equilibrium. And if all this is not enough to justify the classiﬁcation of the ‘second Hicks’ within the post-Keynesian approach, there are also some other skilful and courageous changes of attitude: his prompt acceptance of the Cambridge criticism of the neoclassical theory of capital (in Capital and Growth , 1965); his use of the method of vertically integrated sectors and his formulation of non-steady-state growth models (in Capital and Time , 1973); and, ﬁnally, his most recent revision of the theory of money (in A Market Theory of Money , 1989).

In the above analogy, we can imagine setting aside different dormitories for different ages of students — e.g., for freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors. In the case of dormitories, this might be for social interaction or mutual aid in studying. There are also advantages to adopting a similar strategy in a log- structured disk subsystem.

## DESIGN AND OPTIMIZATION OF THERMAL SYSTEMS EPISODE 3 PART 4 PPSX

All these optimization methods have seen a considerable increase in interest and activity in recent years. This has been mainly due to growing global com- petition, the advent of new and diverse technological fields, new demands being placed on technology, and increasing computational power. However, except for geometric programming, many of these methods are generally not easily appli- cable to practical thermal systems and have been employed mainly in other fields such as communications, transportation, aircraft structures, and construction. Therefore, this chapter presents a detailed discussion of geometric programming and a brief outline of the other techniques for the sake of completeness and for indicating recent trends in optimization. In addition, a few specific problems as well as modifications in the problem formulation for some thermal systems may allow the use of these specialized techniques.

Statistics further suggest that urban areas, such as the District, have different experiences with gun-related death, injury, and crime, than do less densely populated rural areas. A dis- proportionate amount of violent and property crimes occur in urban areas, and urban criminals are more likely than other offenders to use a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. See Dept. of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, D.

Homicide appears to be a much greater issue in urban areas; from 1985 to 1993, for example, “half of all homicides occurred in 63 cities with 16% of the nation’s population. ” Wintemute, The Future of Firearm Violence Prevention, 282 JAMA 475 (1999). One study concluded that although the overall rate of gun death between 1989 and 1999 was roughly the same in urban than rural areas, the urban homicide rate was three times as high; even after adjusting for other variables, it was still twice as high.
