From the Stratton Plan to GEOSS: A brief history of U.S. ocean policy

Joseph Czika; Craig McLean OCEANS 2008, 2008

The history of U.S. ocean policy over about the last 40 years is reviewed and summarized. The history is told in largely chronological order beginning with the Stratton Report in 1969. Various ocean policy commission reports are the cornerstones of the story. In addition, several other reports are highlighted. Several themes run through the story including the interplay of policy ...


Two-port isotropic radiator for unpolarized waves

G. Deschamps; J. Dyson; P. Mast IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, 1969

The possibility of radiating an equal amount of power in all directions and all polarizations, using a two-port antenna excited by two independent noise sources, is considered.


Additional Experiments with Impulse Excitation

E. W. Stone Proceedings of the Institute of Radio Engineers, 1917

After drawing a definite distinction between "impulse excitation" and "beat excitation," the writer considers broadly the conditions under which each of these is brought about. In connection with a type of impulse excitation transmitter, there are considered the effect of a hydrogen atmosphere in the gap, the construction of the necessarily closely inductive coupler between spark gap circuit and antenna ...


Antenna Design for Field-Strength Gain

H. W. Kohler Proceedings of the IRE, 1944

An analysis is made of obtainable root-mean-square field strength in the horizontal plane with a given radio-frequency power fed into four identical, short vertical linear antennas which are located in the corners of a square. This field strength is compared to that produced with the same power fed into a single antenna of the same design. The resistance coupled into ...


Tourism Competitive Power Difference Study of China Provincial-Level Regions on Grey Relational Synthetic Evaluation

Xian-Chun Zhang; Peng Zeng; Sha-Sha Yang 2008 4th International Conference on Wireless Communications, Networking and Mobile Computing, 2008

The study of China provincial-level regional tourism competitive power has both theoretical and practical significance. According to constructing index system of evaluating and using grey relational synthetic evaluation, the assessment and comparison are progressed by the tourism competitive power. The study finds that the competitive power shows imbalance difference distribution with 'four groups'. At the same time, the suggestion in ...

    Praise for Open Process Frameworks"From a customer experience standpoint, this conceptual approach to business design is a winner!" —Patricia Seybold, coauthor of Customers.com and The Customer Revolution "Marca illustrates . . . how the Internet can be used to create adaptive enterprises that dynamically change their processes, their rules, and their workers as their needs continually change. This book gives an enlightening glimpse of dramatic business opportunities now open to us." —Tom Malone, PhD, Patrick J. McGovern Professor of Management, MIT Sloan School of Management "Marca's Open Process Frameworks presents the essential business architecture to enable corporate adaptability in the twenty-first century . . . Every executive, manager, architect, process engineer, and project manager in every company should read this book." —Bill Welch, Vice President of Administration, CDI Corporation "Regardless of where you may be in the evolution of the technology approach Marca describes, you will find this book useful. It gives us a glimpse into how technology will affect the way we all do business in the current e-Age."—Sam Rossa, Senior Vice President of Sales, Tandem Staffing Solutions, Incorporated"Marca provides a directive . . . for how an organization can capture, adapt, control, and measure its business processes. This strikes me as doing e-business the right way."—Clement McGowan, PhD, Senior Principal Scientist, Mitretek Systems, Incorporated "Marca leverages the concept of Open Systems to develop the concept of Open Process . . . to describe how a company operates in terms of building blocks which support adaptable and optimized Internet-based solutions."—Matt Yuschik, PhD, Mike Vannata, PhD, Jim Kilmurray, PhD, The University o f Phoenix"Marca captures the essence and magnitude of our managed staffing program at Siemens Westinghouse. Using these frameworks, Marca designed an effective solution for us, which meant the difference between success and failure for our $100 million program." —Dave Smith, Department Head, Indirect Supply Management, America, Siemens Westinghouse "In my nearly forty years of supply chain dynamics in the intangible fields of service and contract labor, I never thought I would see the day of what Marca helped bring together for our contract labor management program." —Jim Stellhorn, Senior Procurement Specialist, Siemens Westinghouse A key resource for e-business successWritten from the standpoint of business adaptability and durability, this unique resource offers proven principles for successful e-business, e-process, and e-commerce applications and projects. Marca shares with us the principles that have most helped his customers create substantial value, return-on-investment, and end-customer benefits.This guidebook explains how to use the Internet to greatly improve business processes and complex supply chains. It shows process engineers how to translate business processes into Web pages and then link those Web pages to e-commerce applications. It also gives software designers proven methods for developing e-business and e-commerce applications. And it provides project managers with valuable heuristics for realizing successful e-business and e-commerce initiatives.A comprehensive and accessible guide that brings together concept, architecture, technology, and implementation in real-world terms, Open Process Frameworks is a cutting-edge resource for today's e-business and its underpinnings.

  • THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

    The federal government and its policies can have enormous impact on industry beyond export controls. By 1991, LEOMA had made significant headway with the major issues that had dominated its earliest years. LEOMA coordinated input from the U.S. laser industry so that it presented a coherent and accurate picture of the industry's capability. The North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) included a category explicitly for lasers, but the proposed subdivisions within that category did not reflect a realistic breakout of industry products. The LEOMA board realized that a Commerce Department survey of domestic and international laser sales could be beneficial, but the proposed survey would not produce useful data. Although LEOMA efforts with the federal government had pretty close to negligible impact on issues such as the research and development tax credit, it had a significant impact in altering the strategies of the national laboratories.

  • Competency-Based Qualifications in the United Kingdom and United States and Other Developments

    This chapter describes a few attempts made in the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (US) to develop precisely defined competency-based qualifications. A brief description of the development and purposes of Standards in schools in the US is given. Attention is drawn to the standards for technological literacy, and how this is different from engineering literacy. An alternative approach was advocated by the Royal Society for the Encouragement of the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) under the title Education for Capability. The ability-led curricula of Alverno College are described. An initiative of the UK Employment Department to develop Personal Transferable Skills among students from all subject areas in universities is described. A similar approach recommended by the SCANS Committee of the US Department of Labor for the high school curriculum is explained. The chapter ends with a description of the American College Testing College Outcome Measures Program.
