Problems of Regional Development of Protected Areas in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug

Problems of Regional Development of Protected Areas in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug

The deficiency of research studies on the establishment of an optimal and inter-related network of protected areas in YNAO had implications. As the archive materials make clear, in 1993–2019, some protected areas were liquidated, boundaries were changed without sufficient ecological reasons. New PAs were established quite spontaneously, usually bearing in mind the location of licensed sites. In addition, many archive documents display weak and insufficient knowledge of ecosystems (28). Although since the 1980s, extensive and fairly regular research work has been carried out on environmental monitoring, geo-, and biodiversity. For example, commissioned by of the YNAO Department of Natural Resources, Forest and Oil and Gas Complex (formerly the Department for Protection, Reproduction, and Use Management of YNAO bioresources), a number of integrated targeted programs was developed at varying levels, research studies were actively carried out: in 1988–2001 — the research project “Development of the network of protected areas” (Center for Study of Animal Migration, Moscow) (20); in 2000 — GEF project “Integrated ecosystem approach to conservation of biodiversity and reduction of biotopes disturbances in the Russian Arctic” (29); in 2007–2009 — the research project “Assessment of present- day system of PAs as the basis of ecological safety in YNAO and development of future network of PAs in the region for 2007–2009” (Research Center for Concervation of Biodiversity, Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, Moscow) (30), and the regional targeted program “Preservation of the Network of Protected Areas, Preservation and Reproduction of the Biological Resources of Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug for 2007– 2009” (25), “Regional targeted program on reinforcement of combating poaching for 2006– 2008 (supplementary materials)” (31), and others. Thus, either the results of these studies did not fall into the field of attention of nature conservation authorities, or they bore too little relation to the priority problems of PA management for YNAO authorities. Although, this work has been regularly funded. In any case, this issue needs further research.

TítuloTowarts a computer science program: adventures of a mathematician in the world of informatics

But they, our future students, thought that they were already well prepared – and we did not really contradict them. On the other hand, stemming from a mathemat- ics department, we thought that we should include a lot of math in the first and sec- ond year programs. Of course: all of us, while thinking about the “ideal” computer science program had taken a look at what we thought was some kind of computer science bible: Knuth’s marvelous book [1], a book, or a series of books, dealing with the fabulous applications of mathematics in computer science. A book full of number theory, Fibonacci sequences, formal power series and so on, definitely fundamental mathematical tools which appeared to be essential if one wanted to write his or her first computer program!

A n EFL Writing Case Study of a Student at the Language Department of the Army Polytechnic School-TEFL Program Portfolio

Supporting Explanation. Candidates understand the different purposes of assessment (e.g., diagnostic, language proficiency, academic achievement) and the basic concepts of assessment so that they are prepared to assess ELLs. For example, measures of knowledge or ability (including language) that are standards based should be equitable (fair), accurate (valid), consistent (reliable), and practical (easy) to administer. Authentic or performance‐based assessment measures often best meet these criteria while addressing students as individuals. These measures should be both formative (ongoing) and summative (proficiency testing) and include both languages where possible. The more closely assessment tasks resemble instructional activities, particularly those relevant to English learners’ lives, the more likely the tasks are to accurately assess what has been taught and learned and to inform further instruction.

Newborn screening: rationale for a comprehensive, fully integrated public health system

Newborn screening: rationale for a comprehensive, fully integrated public health system

In the mid-1980s, DNA was shown to be stable in, and extractable from, neonatal dried blood samples [28]. This DNA could be extracted and amplified by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or directly amplified without extraction from methanol-fixed samples [29–31]. Following demonstration of the potential applicability of DNA testing in newborn screening situations, a pilot program at the Texas Department of Health demon- strated that DNA confirmatory testing for sickle cell disease as a follow-up to initial screening, and using the same dried blood spot, reduced the mean age at diag- nosis in half, from approximately 4 to 2 months of age [32]. Not only did this testing protocol (a two-tiered system using DNA testing as the second tier following routine isoelectric focusing) ensure that the majority of screened newborns received penicillin prophylaxis be- fore 4 months of age, but also it drastically reduced the time and effort expended in patient follow-up and con- firmatory testing. A second tier DNA analysis was also proposed for cystic fibrosis screening in 1990 [33], and was shown to be effective [34] and shown to be useful in decreasing unnecessary follow-up in newborn screening [35]. Second tier DNA testing has also been suggested for newborn congenital adrenal hyperplasia screening [36,37] and medium chain acyl CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD) deficiency screening [38,39]. The utility of DNA follow-up for hearing screening is also a subject of much discussion [7,40–42].

Demand constraints in a titling program in Uruguay

Demand constraints in a titling program in Uruguay

Feder and Nishio (1999) report the benefits of land registration and titling in Asian, African and Latin American countries. They conclude that there are “prerequisites for land registration to be economically viable”. The authors discuss factors that are important so that the titling programs have positive outcomes, for instance land productivity depends on complementary investments in public goods like drainage and transport infrastructure. Without these complementary investments, titling programs may not be enough to induce its beneficiaries to perform other productive enhancing investments e.g. clearing of stones. The point made by Feder and Nishio (1999) is an important one. Our paper is clearly related to them. In this note we go one step before and study why some individuals that are offered house titles for free may not complete the steps to acquire formal property rights and therefore do not benefit from the policy while others do.

for separating signal and background. The τ ID methodology em- ployed in this analysis exploits a multivariate technique to build a discriminant [14]. A boosted decision tree (BDT) algorithm is used [15,16]. The number of τ leptons in the selected samples is extracted by fitting the distributions of BDT outputs to background and signal templates. Section 6 describes how the background tem- plates are constructed using control data samples. They exploit the fact that events with and τ candidates of opposite sign charge (OS) contain real τ leptons while those with same sign charge (SS) are pure background. Events with τ leptons are not all from tt; the contribution from processes other than tt → + τ + X is estimated from Monte Carlo simulation. Section 7 describes the fitting proce- dure and the results of the fit. The fit results are also checked using an alternative method, referred to as the “matrix method”, based on a cut on the BDT output (Section 7.1). The measured cross sec- tion is given in Section 8 and the conclusions are in Section 9.

A Life long learning recommender system to promote employability

A Life long learning recommender system to promote employability

• University skills: These are the skills the user does not have, but that can be acquired from university courses. They are computed based on the union of the terms taught in all programs from the records generated by the second module course matching process. It is worth remarking that the skills can be learned from multiple programs (i.e. the skills are not exclusive of one program). At this level, it is not objective to analyze which academic programs and courses can be enrolled to acquire the skills; that will be the responsibility of the next report (see Figure 3). • Missing skills: These are the missing skills that cannot be learned at the university. Mainly, in the example, because not all the programs have been taken into account in phase 2 of the system (i.e. not all computer science programs were dealt and therefore angularjs, backend and postgres were not matched with any course). Currently, this report only offers one chart related to the knowledge learned in the Open University of Catalonia. However, the system is prepared to show reports of different universities when complete information about courses and programs is stored in the system. This comparison could help the learner to select the institution that could help to promote better his resume and knowledge.

El monitoreo forestal por medio de Sitios Permanentes de Investigación Silvícola en Chihuahua, México

The network of forestry research sites in Bocoyna was part of the program “Integrated management of natural resources in a pilot program of Model Forest in the central region of the Chihuahua mountain range”, which was carried out in collaboration with the International Forest Program Model, the Directorate of Rural Development of the Government of the State and INIFAP with the objective of keeping under constant monitoring the tree structures (normal diameter, total height, diameter of the crown, in addition to growth), with or without silvicultural treatment ( Martínez et al.,2012 ). Different forest productivity conditions were considered (Table 3) and 64 SPIS were established: 16 high productivity sites in ejido San Juanito, 16 medium productivity sites in ejido San Ignacio de Arareco, 16 low productivity sites in ejido Cusarare, and 16 of very high productivity in the ejido Retiro and Gumeachi (Chacón and Cano, 1998).

Acute Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation in the Emergency Department

Acute Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation in the Emergency Department

Atrial fibrillation is the most frequently encountered sustained arrhythmia in emergency departments. In Spain, it is becoming increasingly common. It is a serious condition that often affects elderly individuals who are at a high risk of stroke, who may have structural heart disease and associated comorbid conditions, and who usually present with acute symptoms associated with the arrhythmia. All of these factors have an important influence on treatment decisions. Since episodes of recent-onset atrial fibrillation are usually managed in the emergency department, it is vitally important that these departments implement appropriate treatment that increases the likelihood that sinus rhythm will be restored and that establishes prophylaxis for stroke as early as possible. This article contains a review of the methods of stroke prophylaxis used during the restoration of sinus rhythm, the aim of and strategies used for heart rate control, and the indications for, the factors influencing decisions on and the techniques used for restoring sinus rhythm, with particular emphasis on episodes of recent-onset atrial fibrillation.

the signal cross section by no more than 20%, which is less than the expected 1σ variation. The resulting limits for narrow Z 0 resonances and broad coloured resonances are pre- sented in Figure 7 and Table 4. Upper limits on the production cross section times branch- ing fraction of a narrow Z 0 resonance range from approximately 8 pb for a Z 0 mass of 0.6 TeV to 610 fb at 1 TeV and 220 fb at 1.6 TeV, in good agreement with the expected limits. These lead to exclusion of the mass range between 0.6 TeV and 1.15 TeV for the leptophobic topcolor Z 0 model considered here. The upper value of the excluded mass range agrees with the expected sensitivity within the estimated precision. The observed upper cross section limits for a Z 0 and a Kaluza–Klein gluon at 2 TeV are about 1.5σ higher than the expected value, reflecting the small data excess at 1.8-2.5 TeV, seen in Figure 6.

Conflict and cultural violence in Colombia  Transformation proposals from the school

Conflict and cultural violence in Colombia Transformation proposals from the school

There have been numerous successes with children. Just to mention a few, we can point out that affection, unconditional support, artistic and creative activities and games have allowed the learning and the develop- ment of potentials in children that have improved the coexistence at school. The pupils have learned to iden- tify violent and aggressive situations through games; they have made progresses in learning and in the com- petences to solve conflicts in an autonomous way, res- pecting the others and coming to satisfactory solutions for both parties, without needing revenge; they have learned to create alternative paths and solutions for con- flicts, always through the word and the dialogue; they have discovered that they are able to solve their pro- blems without the teacher’s help; there has been a decre- ase in mockeries and in refusing the others’ opinions and expressions, among other things.

Civilian Movement for Ministries or Departments of Peace in the World

But why should this stop an African government from esta- blishing such a ministry? Ministries of the environment and women’s affairs were unheard of 30 years ago; now most coun- tries have one or both. Having been created, they become an established fact of political life and develop a momentum of their own. It will require only one government to create a Ministry of Peace for others to follow.

Abstract interpretation with specialized definitions

Abstract interpretation with specialized definitions

H : CP as given by Look up. If the answer changes, then its dependencies, which are readily available in DT , need to be recomputed (L36) using process update . This procedure restarts the processing of all body postfixes which depend on the calling pattern for which the answer has been updated by launching new calls to process clause . There is no need of recomputing answers in our example. The procedure remove prev deps eliminates (L42) entries in DT for the clause postfix which is about to be re-computed. We do not present its definition here due to lack of space. Note that the new calls to process clause may in turn launch calls to process update . On termination of the algorithm a global fixpoint is guaranteed to have been reached. Note that our algorithm also stores in the dependency sets calls from the initial entry points (marked with the value entry in L5). These do not need to be reprocessed (L40) but are useful for determining the specialized version to use for the initial queries after code generation.
