PEAT LAND AND SALTMARSHES

Describe and compare peat land and saltmarshes in the worldI. IntroductionWetlands are important and valued environments for many reasons.They are highly productive ecosystems, and are able to capture energy and providefood for many animals and provide important refuges for wildlife in times ofdrought. Wetlands provide a natural water balance in the landscape and help toprovide protection against floods and have a role in providing water qualityprotection in the catchment by filtering pollutants such as sediments, nutrients,organic and inorganic matter and bacteria.Benefit living things, wetlands support a wide variety of flora (plants) and fauna(animals) and form different habitats and ecosystems. They provide nursery areasfor fish, and breeding grounds for wildlife, particularly water birds. Wetlandsprovide vital habitat for some species of threatened fauna (animals) and providerefuge for migratory water birds that breed in the northern hemisphere in countriessuch as China and Siberia. Thousands of migratory water birds inhabit Australianwetlands each year.Many wetlands are of cultural significance to aboriginal people. They are naturallybeautiful places and provide opportunities for recreation activities such as boating,swimming, bushwalking and bird watching and they provide opportunities forscientific research and are a source of education for the community.Peatlands and salt marshes are two popular and important kinds of wetland.

We realize futures influences the stockmarket, but we cannot afford to stare at the S&P 500 all day long. How can wemonitor the futures effectively? If a stock jumps above its resistance level, that isa breakout. When we see a stock fall below its support line, we call it abreakdown.

You may be right, but let me ask you questions. Do you own bankstocks or brokerage stocks? Do you have any oil stocks or airline stocks? If youanswered yes to any of the questions, you need to pay attention to the futuresmarkets.Bank and brokerage stocks are interest rate sensitive. In general, they prosperunder low interest rates environments. The chart below is the Bank Index. It hasbeen rallying since late November, and the index recently broke out above its 50day moving average.Now let's see the 10-year US Treasury Note (March 2001 contract) from theinterest rate futures. As you can see clearly, the 10-year note has been surgingsince early November. This rally had started almost two weeks before the bankindex began its upward movement. Although the 10-year T-Note did not signal tous the exact moment to get in bank stocks, it certainly warned us of a potentialtrend change in the bank sector.

Effect of hydro and hormonal priming on growth and development of rice under timely and late sown conditions

Effect of hydro and hormonal priming on growth and development of rice under timely and late sown conditions

In the present investigation HUR 105 genotype was selected to see the effect of hydro and hormonal seed priming on growth and development of rice crop. Priming of seeds has been done with distilled water (hydro) and two hormones (Kinetin and salicylic acid) and different growth parameters, such as plant height, number of tillers hill-1 , number of green leaves hill-1 , leaf area hill-1 and leaf area index were studied at different study periods under timely and late sown conditions. Primed seeds increased all the growth parameters in respect to non-primed (control) sets.

DICTIONARY OF WORD ROOTS AND COMBINING FORMS (1960) BORROR DONALD J

DICTIONARY OF WORD ROOTS AND COMBINING FORMS (1960) BORROR DONALD J

How To Use This DictionaryEvery scientific term or name is composed of one or more wordroots, between and following which may be one or more vowels or consonants. In the list of roots on the following pages, the connectingvowels and consonants that are most frequently encountered are indicated as variations in the roots. For example, the entry erythr, -o(G) red indicates that the root is erythr and the most commonly encountered connecting vowel is o, and the root may be found as erythror erythro. The source language of each root is indicated by the abbreviation in parentheses (the root erythr is from a Greek word).Roots preceded by a hyphen are suffixes, or roots generally usedat the end of a word; for example, -idae is the suffix that is added tothe roots of generic names to form the names of families of animals,and -pus is the Greek root meaning foot that is used at the end of aword (e.g., octopus). Roots preceded by an equals sign may be usedalone or as a terminal root; for example, =buteo, from the Latin andmeaning a kind of hawk, is used as Buteo, a genus of hawks; and inthe name Archibuteo, another genus of hawks. Root variations precededby an equals sign are variations usually used at the end of a word; forexample, in the entry cephal, =a, -o, the ^§_ indicates that cephala isusually used at the end of a word (as in Acanthocephala, the phylumof spiny-headed worms, parasitic; also a genus of bugs that have aspine on the head).Similar English meanings are separated by commas, and dissimilar meanings by semicolons. Different English meanings of the sameroot may be due to the fact that the word from which the root comeshas more than one meaning, or the root may be derived from morethan one word in the source language; some roots may be derivedfrom words in two source languages, and in such cases the sourcelanguage is indicated in connection with each English equivalent.Variations in roots are listed separately in the alphabetical sequence only if they are separated by more than two intervening roots;variations that would be separated by only one or two intervening rootsare not repeated in the sequence.A few examples will serve to illustrate the use of this dictionary.1

reported prevalence of obesity. Previously this information would have shed little light on the magnitudeof the problem as different studies have used differentdefinitions. The recently agreed cut-off points for overweight and obesity in children have given us theopportunity to provide baseline information and,uniquely, trends in overweight and obesity over a 20year period.3 The data from the national study ofhealth and growth for 1990 formed the greater part ofthe data for children aged 5 to 11 years in the UnitedKingdom dataset, which contributed to the international standards.9 Our study gives an appropriatebase against which estimates from other studies in theUnited Kingdom and elsewhere can be compared withthe same methodology.Because of the reduced power of an analysis of adichotomous variable compared with an analysis of theunderlying continuous measure, the results do not showa clear picture of the age group differences in theincrease in prevalence. An analysis of a weight for heightindex, however, showed a clear trend of a greater25Primary careincrease in older age groups from 1972 to 1994, whichwas particularly noticeable in Scottish children.8Although debate over the cut-off points willcontinue, this should not detract from the urgency oftackling the problem of obesity.

What are the opportunities and challenges of developing country members in the WTO dispute settlement system

What are the opportunities and challenges of developing country members in the WTO dispute settlement system

PREFACEThe WTO is playing a novel role in regional trade ralations. Access to amulti lateral dispute settlement system is helping to scrutinize and anchor themore lax regional disciplines. Pressure through exposure can help countries,particularly third world countries that are unable or unwilling to reltaliate toobtain more favourable results than in bilateral or regional instances. In fact, it ishighly considerable whether poorly developed countries have either chance orchallenges in the WTO dispute settlement system. In order to clearly analysethis statement, I choose the first question of semester assigment that is “Whatare the opportunities and challenges of developing country members in theWTO dispute settlement system?”.CONTENTI. Introduction to the structure of the WTO Dispute Settlement system andthe devoloping countries1. Definition of the WTO dispute settlementBlack’s Law Dictionary circumscribes “dispute” as “a conflict or controversy,esp. one that has given rise to a particular lawsuit.”1.The Permanent Court of International Justice (PCIJ) and the International Courtof Justice (ICJ) have addressed the issue of the existence of a dispute in severalcases.Disputes in the WTO are essentially about broken promises. By this, a disputearises when one country adopts a trade policy measure or takes some action thatone or more fellow-WTO members considers to be breaking the WTOagreements, or to be a failure to live up to obligations.2. Definition of the developing countries in WTOThe explanation of the developing countries is diverse as different internationalorganizations apply different standards. The United Nations maintains a list ofthe world’s least developed countries, and it also divides the globe intodeveloping and developed regions, although not countries. The World Bankmaintains slightly different categories of low, middle, and high-income. The

All his life, he had been 'different',weak and delicate as a child and just a lowly copywriterfor Montgomery Ward, the big Chicago mail order house,as an adult. He was thirty-three years old at the time and was already deep in debt,depressed and sad. However, he made up a story for her to placate the child and inspire herto be optimisticThe story was that of Rudolph, the only reindeer in the world with a big shiny red nose.Everybody used to tease and make fun of this poor creature and call him 'Rudolph, the rednosed reindeer', which embarrassed him greatly. Even his mother, father and sister weremortified by his presence near them, which deepened Rudolph's embarrassment anddepression. He immersed himself in self-pity and felt quite lonely. However, on one Christmaseve, when Santa got his sleigh ready for his annual trip around the world with his team ofeight handsomest and huskiest reindeers including Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, and Vixen andthe entire reindeer community assembled there to cheer them, thich mist and fog engulfedthe earth.Santa was wondering how could he distribute his toysnow and how to find chimneys.

 INTERNATIONAL MARKETING STRATEGY

INTERNATIONAL MARKETING STRATEGY

Digg website, a site claiming 20 million visitors per month,were saying that ‘Steve Jobs and Apple don’t produce goodtech, they produce good marketing’, other contributors weremore positive. Smaran Dayal, an 18-year-old from Pune, Indiawas observing that Apple’s computers and iPods wererevolutionary products. Dayal has 500 ‘friends’ who trackhis Apple stories, so any recommendations he makes carry500 votes and this provides a good start towards getting astory on the front page. The different aspect of this type ofsite from other sites, such as Google and Yahoo, that alsoaggregate stories is that they rank stories and also recognisethe vocal nature of their users and that some are regardedas opinion formers.There are many implications for marketing. For example, acasual remark by a senior company executive will be pouncedupon by users. When he dismissed a rival product, Wii, as ‘animpulse buy’, a Sony senior executive attracted 270 comments,generally criticising Sony as arrogant and complaining aboutthe high cost of Sony’s Playstation 3. These individual storiesmay seem insignificant but they add up.In 2005 a blogger and media commentator, Jeff Jarvis,complained about his problems with online computer seller,Dell, and this triggered an avalanche of similar complaintswhich led to a drop in Dell’s share price. This does not illustratethe power the Internet gives to one person, rather it providesa focus for many similar individual complaints from other usersto gather together.Of course, marketing companies may see the opportunityto exploit this grass roots marketing by providing the ‘seed’

Birds that feed in flocks commonly retire together into roosts. The reasons for roosting communally are not always obvious. but there are some likely benefits. In winter especially. it is important for birds to keep warm at night and conserve precious food reserves. One way to do this is to find a sheltered roost. Solitary roosters shelter indense vegetation or enter a cavity - horned larks dig holes in the ground and ptarmigan burrow into snow banks - but the effect of sheltering is magnified by several birds huddling together in the roosts, as wrens, swifts. brown creepers, bluebirds. and anis do. Body contact reduces the surface area exposed to the cold air, so the birds keep each other warm. Two kinglets huddling together were found to reduce their heat losses by a quarter, and three together saved a third of their heat. The second possible benefit of communal roosts is that they act as "information centers." During the day, parties of birds will have spread out to forage over a very large area. When they return in the evening some will have fed well, but others may have found little to eat. Some investigators have observed that when the birds set out again next morning, those birds that did not feed well on the previous day appear to follow those that did. The behavior of common and lesser kestrels may illustrate different feeding behaviors of similar birds with different roosting habits. The common kestrel hunts vertebrate animals in a small, familiar hunting ground, whereas the very similar lesser kestrel feeds on insects over a large area. The common kestrel roosts and hunts alone, but the lesser kestrel roosts and hunts in flocks, possibly so one bird can learn from others where to find insect swarms. Finally. there is safety in numbers at communal roosts since there will always be a few birds awake at any given moment to give the alarm. But this increased protection is partially counteracted by the fact that mass roosts attract predators and are especially vulnerable if they are on the ground. Even those in trees can be attacked by birds of prey. The birds on the edge are at greatest risk since predators find it easier to catch small birds perching at the margins of the roost. Câu 31: What does the passage mainly discuss? A. How birds find and store food B. How birds maintain body heat in the winter C. Why birds need to establish territory D. Why some species of birds nest together Câu 32: The word "conserve" is closest in meaning to A. retain B. watch C. locate D. share Câu 33: Ptarmigan keep warm in the winter by A. building nests in trees B. huddling together on.the ground with other birds C. digging tunnels into the snow D. burrowing into dense patches of vegetation Câu 34: The word “ magnified” in line 6 is closest in meaning to. A. combined B. caused C. modified D. intensified Câu 35: The author mentions kinglets in line 9 as an example of birds that A. prorect themselves by nesting in holes B. usually feed and nest in pairs C. nest together for warmth D. nest with other species of birds Câu 36: The word “ forage” in line 12 is closest in meaning ro A. rest B. fly C. feed D. assemble Câu 37: Which of the following statements about lesser and common kestrels is true? A. The lesser kestrel feeds sociably but the common kestrel does not. B. The lesser kestrel and the common kestrel have similar diers. C. The common kestrel nests in larger flocks than does the lesser kestrel. D. The common kestrel nests in trees; the lesser kestrel nests on the ground. Câu 38: The word “counteracted” in line 24 is closest in meaning to A. shielded B. negated C. measured D. suggested Câu 39: Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the passage as an advantage derived by birds that huddle together while sleeping? A. Some birds in the flock function as information centers for others who are looking for food. B. Staying together provides a greater amount of heat for the whole flock. C. Some members of the flock warn others of impending dangers. D. Several members of the flock care for the young.

Some birds in the group will attack the others D. Groups are more atractive to predators than individual birds are.

Lake Baikal, the world’s largest lake, is located in southern Siberia, in Russia. It measures 395 miles of coastline. The lake’s rocky basin consists of three depressions, which hold a total volume of 14,656 cubic miles of water, 20 percent of the freshwater in the world. The lake is also very deep, with its deepest point at over 1 mile and an average depth of 2,066 feet. Furthermore, scientists have determined that Lake Baikal is the oldest lake in the world. From sediment obtained by drilling deep down below the lake, researchers estimate it to be at least 25 million years old. To scientists, Lake Baikal is of particular interest because of its unique and isolated ecosystem. More than 1,000 species of plants and animals found at Lake Baikal exist nowhere else on earth and some can be dated to prehistoric times. Among its unique fauna is the Baikal freshwater seal. This creature, which local people call nerpa, is the only mammal which inhabits the lake. Researchersspeculate that these seals, which have been breeding at Lake Baikal for 22 million years, are the descendents of ocean-dwelling seals which migrated inland in search of food, when the lake was still connected to the sea. Another creature that is unique to this Siberian Lake is the omu, a fish, which is caught by local fisherman and is considered a great delicacy. For centuries, the water in Lake Baikal was so clear that it was possible to see down to depths of 40 to 60 feet. First, the lake contained certain small zooplankton and small crustaceans that consumed waterweeds, bacteria, and other material that would otherwise cloud the water. Furthermore, the water in the lake consisted of rainwater and melted snow that flowed down from a mountain range in about 300 streams and through uninhabited forest. Finally, most of the watershed has a rocky surface, so the water flowing into the lake did not accumulate mud or organic matter and had little mineral or chemical content. Câu 71: The word “which” in the first paragraph refers to __ . A. the rocky basin B. the lake C. the total water volume D. three depressions Câu 72: All of the following is mentioned EXCEPT that __ A. Lake Baikal is the world’s largest lake B. Lake Baikal is located in Russia C. Lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world D. Lake Baikal is the oldest lake in the world Câu 73: All of the following are true about Lake Baikal EXCEPT that __ A. it has a great variety of fish B. it is near the sea C. it has the biggest amount of freshwater in the world D. it is about 25 million years old Câu 74: Scientists are particularly interested in Lake Baikal because __ A. its ecosystem is special B. the animals there are similar to elsewhere C. it has more species of plants than anywhere else D. it is isolated Câu 75: Baikal fresh seal is __ A. the only habitants of the lake Baikal B. only found in the lake Baikal C. has been breeding at the lake for 32 million years D. a species of plant Câu 76: Omu is mentioned in the passage as __. A. a local fisherman B. an animal migrating inland from the sea C. descendents of ocean-dwelling seals D. an animal unique to the lake Câu 77: The water of the lake Baikal is __ A. used to make crystal B. toxic C. made of crystal D. transparent Câu 78: According to the passage, there are __ factors contributing to the clarity of the water in Lake Baikal.

But in the Caldecott “toy books”, which first appeared in 1878, they were almost as important as the lines of text, and occupied far more space in the book. One can almost read the story from the dramatic action in the pictures.             Since then, thousands of successful picture books have been published in the United States and around the world. In the best, the words and illustrations seem to complement each other perfectly. Often a single person, is responsible for both writing and illustrating the book. One of the greatest, and certainly one of the most successful, illustrator-authors was Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Geisel. His first children’s book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children’s literature was changed forever. Seuss’s playful drawings were a perfect complement to his engaging stories and unforgettable characters. In 1957, Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat became the first book in Random House’s best-selling series, Beginner Books, written by Seuss and several other authors. These combine outrageous illustrations of people, creatures, and plants, and playful stories written in very simple language.             Dr. Seuss is not the only well-known author-illustrator, of course. There is Max Sendak, who wrote and illustrated Where the Wild Things Are, the story of a little boy named Max, who becomes king of the fierce ( but funny) creatures that live in the Land of the Wilds Things. Robert McCloskey produced both the richly textured illustrations and delightful story of a family of ducks living in downtown Boston, Make Ways for Ducklings. Some books are produced by a collaborative author-artist team. Author Margaret Wise Brown combined with illustrator Clement Hurd to produce two delightful books loved by very young children, Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Another example is the husband-and-wife team of writer Audrey Wood and illustrator Don Wood, who were responsible for King Bidgood’s in the Bathtub and The Napping House.             Wordless and nearly wordless picture books have become popular. With a little help, three-and four-year-olds can follow the sequence of events, and they can understand the stories suggested in them. The marvel of books with few or no words is that they allow children and their parents the opportunity to tell and retell the same stories over and over in their own words. One of the most charming examples of a wordless book is Jan Omerod’sSunshine. Barbara Berger’s Grandfather Twilight and David Weisner’s Tuesday  are examples of books containing only a few words.             U.S.publishers have also drawn on illustrators from other countries whose original, imaginative works have brought their different visions to American children’s books. Among them are Leo Lionni fromItaly, Feodor Rojankovsky fromRussia, and Taro Yashimi fromJapan.                  ( Source: “ The Complete Guide to the TOEFL Test” – Bruce Rogers)  31.

A comparative assessment of prediction capabilities of modified analytical hierarchy process (MAHP) and Mamdani fuzzy logic models using NetcadGIS for forest fire susceptibility mapping

A COMPARATIVE ASSESSMENT OF PREDICTION CAPABILITIES OF MODIFIED ANALYTICAL HIERARCHY PROCESS (MAHP) AND MAMDANI FUZZY LOGIC MODELS USING NETCADGIS FOR FOREST FIRE SUSCEPTIBILITY MAPPING

The main purpose of this study is to assess forest fire susceptibility maps (FFSMs) and their performances comparison using modified analytical hierarchy process (MAHP) and Mamdani fuzzy logic (MFL) models in a geographic information system (GIS) environment. This study was carried out in the Minudasht Forests, Golestan Province, Iran, and was conducted in three main stages such as spatial data construction, forest fire modelling using MAHP and MFL, and validation of constructed models using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve. At first, seven conditioning factors, such as altitude, slope aspect, slope angle, annual temperature, wind effect, land use, and normalized different vegetation index, were extracted from the spatial database. In the next step, FFSMs were prepared using MAHP and MFL modules in a NetcadGIS Architect environment. Finally, the ROC curves and area under the curves (AUCs) were estimated for validation purposes. The results showed that the AUCs for MFL and MAHP are 88.20% and 77.72%, respectively. The results obtained in this study also showed that the MFL model performed better than the MAHP model. These FFSMs can be applied for land use planning, management, and prevention of future fire hazards.

MASTERING ELASTICSEARCH 2ND

Throughout the book, we will discuss different topics related to Elasticsearch and Lucene. We start with an introduction to the world of Lucene and Elasticsearch to introduce you to the world of queries provided by Elasticsearch, where we discuss different topics related to queries, such as filtering and which query to choose in a particular situation. Of course, querying is not all and, because of that, the book you are holding in your hands provides information on newly introduced aggregations and features that will help you give meaning to the data you have indexed in Elasticsearch indices, and provide a better search experience for your users. Even though, for most users, querying and data analysis are the most interesting parts of Elasticsearch, they are not all that we need to discuss. Because of this, the book tries to bring you additional information when it comes to index architecture such as choosing the right number of shards and replicas, adjusting the shard allocation behavior, and so on. We will also get into the places where Elasticsearch meets Lucene, and we will discuss topics such as different scoring algorithms, choosing the right store mechanism, what the differences between them are, and why choosing the proper one matters. Last, but not least, we touch on the administration part of Elasticsearch by discussing discovery and recovery modules, and the humanfriendly Cat API, which allows us to very quickly get relevant administrative information in a form that most humans should be able to read without parsing JSON responses. We also talk about and use tribe nodes, giving us possibilities of creating federated searches across many nodes.
