    Document Overview:
    A tone signal rather than a radio voice message would lessen the chance of misunderstanding. The "Mayday" announcement does not effectively cause firefighters to leave a building. There are too many reasons to use the "Mayday" signal today. The "Mayday" signal is used for firefighters trapped, when victims are found and many other emergencies.

    Col. Frank Stokes, commander of Minnesota Air National Guard's 148th Fighter Wing in Duluth, Minn., has airplanes older than your average college student and about as troublesome. [...] the other option is to simply build more F- 15s and F- 16s, which can be done sooner rather than later and are planes both pilots and maintainers already know.\n Maj. Gen. Thomas G. Cuder, Michigan adjutant general and vice chairman of the Adjutants General Association's committee on Air Guard force structure and modernization, says the adjutants general (TAGs) want the Guard to be full partners in the process. [...] the replacement aircraft are in place, Wyatt says the wings must operate smarter.

    While some installations are losing organizations and people to Fort Lee, they will gain new personnel from organizations that come in to replace those ateparting. Because some employees may be reluctant to relocate to Fort Lee, the potential exists for an "intellectual brain drain" that may cause shortages of qualified people in certain specialties in the SCoE.

    Document Overview:
    Studies comparing historical data with modern surveys can provide important insights into avian population trends. In 1993-1995 I repeated a breeding bird survey completed by G. W. Salt in 1952 and 1954 in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. The composition of breeding birds on all transects were comparable during the four decades, with most species showing no discernable difference in relative abundance (60.7%; n = 54), although 45.6% (n = 41) showed strong annual variation in the 1990s. Long-distance migrants represented the greatest number of species present (52.8%; n = 47) and the largest proportion showing a decline (25.5%; n = 12). Resident species had the largest proportion showing an increase (31.8%; n = 7). One resident species (Clark's nutcracker, Nucifraga columbiana) and one short distance migrant (red-naped sapsucker, Sphyrapicus nuchalis) showed a declining trend. American bitterns (Botaurus lentiginosus) may have disappeared from the sites surveyed in this study. Willow flycatcher (Empidonax traillii) abundance, while highly variable in the 1990s, also showed a significant decline. Close to half of the species occurring in spruce-fir forest declined (42.2%; n = 11), while species occurring in lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) forest increased (35.3%; n = 12). Large national parks, such as Grand Teton National Park, could act as avian refugium, fundamental in preserving species that are experiencing declines in surrounding areas or on wintering grounds. The value of relatively undisturbed landscapes, such as national parks, to protect and conserve species numbers and diversity is increasingly vital, as the landscape and habitat in the surrounding areas continue to change.

  • A FRAMEWORK FOR ANALYZING DECISION AID USER INTERACTIONS WITH DECISION AIDS
    A FRAMEWORK FOR ANALYZING DECISION AID USER INTERACTIONS WITH DECISION AIDS

    $6.95

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    This paper presents a model that describes how decision aid users interact with decision aid recommendations. Past research assumes that users reject a decision aid recommendation if they disagree and rely upon a decision aid recommendation if they agree with the recommendation. In fact, user interaction with an aid may be more complex and is influenced by organizational policy regarding relying upon an aid recommendation and the perceived utility, self-perception, and impression management gained through relying upon an aid. Understanding user interaction with a decision aid recommendation presents opportunities to further decision aid research. The model may also be useful in setting an organization context of using decision aids. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]

    Document Overview:
    [...] in Afghanistan, French logisticians have been serving as "fighting logisticians" since 2008. [...] the ideal French OMLT logistician must demonstrate hardiness, a full spectrum of technical competencies, emotional stability while facing stressful combat situations, an open mind (since Afghan culture is complex), and the ability to speak English since an Afghan translator speaks Dari or Pashto and English but no French at all.

    Document Overview:
    A card with a number written on it (the input) is pushed into the slot and the teacher puts their hand through the hole of the other side to pull out a card with the output number. The first lesson might be seen as a way of heading towards helping students to answer questions which will be marked as correct and there might be concern about students becoming 'confused' if complexities are brought in. In reply to this I say that the reality is that too often we waste students' time by failing to develop them as mathematicians and then we are surprised that they get some examination questions wrong.
