Although the school was approved, there was a major hurdle that needed to be overcome before Imagine Andrews could become a reality. The challenge was the Maryland requirement for charter schools to open-enroll students through a lottery. A goal of the school was to serve the unique needs of military-connected students and to make this possible a change to the state law requirement for a lottery was necessary. State lawmakers agreed to make an exception for a charter school on a military base and to allow the Maryland State Board of Education to grant waivers to charter schools on militaryinstallations (Md. Code Ann., Educ. § 9-102.1). The waiver was granted in August, 2010 (Maryland State Board of Education Opinion No. 10-35, August 24, 2010), and still requires the charter school to hold a lottery, but allows Imagine Andrews to reserve 65% of the seats for military-connected students and 35% for other students, ensuring that military families will be a primary beneficiary of the school. This legislative decision was also impacted by the complication of base security requirements, which were noted as a reason for the need for a change, to allow the school to serve the community but also to not compromise security.
Many relocation plans of militaryinstallations are often delayed because of the conflict of interest between stakeholders and institutional ambiguity . Such a delay is frequently attri butable to domestic construction companies which pay much attention to cost and process ma nagement but tend to neglect risk management. Accordingly, legal disputes between clients an d project managers often occur concerning work scope and responsibility for costs . The Yo ngsan Relocation Plan (YRP) is a joint international project between the South Korean Ministr y of National Defence and the US Army Korea. The total cost of this project is estimated to b e 15.9 trillion KRW, and 129 US military bases will be relocated and integrated into 49 bases including administrative, medical and religious facilities (A press release issued in July, 2017). According to the sources of funds, YRP consists of an endowment & concession project (LH 1
pared to the total employment and GDP in the respective regional economies. The regional impacts at Vance AFB, McAlester AAP and Tinker AFB range from 4% to 7% of the total employment and total GDP in the regional economy. The impacts at Altus AFB are estimated to be approximately 19% for total em- ployment and approximately 23% of total GDP in the regional economy. Likewise, at Fort Sill the employment impacts are estimated to be about 33% of the total employment and the GDP impacts are estimated to be approximately 40% of regional GDP. While each of the militaryinstallations is vital to the state’s econo- my, Altus AFB and Fort Sill are the prima- ry engines of their regional economies. One last indicator of the impact of the mil- itary installations is the difference in wag- es. Oklahoma’s average wage equaled $38,237 in 2010 (Source: Bureau of La- bor Statistics, QCEW data); however, the average wage of jobs impacted by the militaryinstallations equaled $41,742, or about 9% higher than the average state wage. Similarly, the average wages of jobs impacted by each of the installa- tions are greater than the average re - gional wage near the installations. While average wages at Fort Sill’s impacted jobs are slightly higher, average wages at McAlester AAP’s impacted jobs are markedly higher than the average re- gional wage. This may be explained by the composition of the jobs at each of the militaryinstallations. Fort Sill has a rela-
Elementary and secondary schools have operated on militaryinstallations since 1816, being managed and owned by either a Military Service, the Department of War or the DoD. In 1950, this disparate group of schools on militaryinstallations in the United States was consolidated and placed under the Secretary of Education’s authority and subsequently was transferred back to DoD in 1981. Over time, some of these schools, whether run by the Secretary of Education or DoD, were transferred to local educational agencies (LEAs), closed as militaryinstallations moved or were closed. Today, DoD operates 60 schools in 7 states: Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, New York, South Carolina and Virginia. These schools are known as the Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools (DDESS) and are operated by the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA), which is located in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. DDESS enrolls about 26,000 military-connected students. Students are eligible to attend DDESS if they live on a military installation in the Continental United States, Puerto Rico or Guam, and the DDESS school program is operated in accordance with Section 2164 of title 10, United States Code.
facilities provide an excellent capacity for the future projection of the European Union’s influence into the South Atlantic, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and indeed, even the Middle East and the Indian Ocean (see map, below). And unlike many American or Chinese facilities, many of our militaryinstallations are located on our own sovereign territories overseas and include naval harbours, aerodromes and barracks, which could be modified, enlarged or upgraded as the need dictates. But a potential defence white paper is not just about challenges and threats, or military forces and civilian services and the way in which they should be used. It is also about the geographical spaces in which they are likely to be deployed and sustained as a deterrent, both now and in the near and distant futures. Any European review should give extensive attention to this issue; while, for example, the current focus will remain on the European Neighbourhood and Middle East—with growing attention given to the Indian Ocean region—it is likely that other areas will become important. Indeed, one day, we may need more overseas military bases, in different locations, and with a different posture and focus, such as in the Arctic zone. A strategic defence review should therefore by supplemented by a degree of geostrategic forecasting, much like the projections undertaken
The level of federal expenditures within the State is generally a function of several factors, including demographics, the structure of the economy and economic well-being, and the prevalence of federal facilities. The economic profile of the State is well-suited to provide multiple services and goods to the federal government. Indeed, segments of Maryland’s economy have evolved to provide these goods and services to the federal government. In addition to whether the State’s businesses produce the goods or services that the federal government demands, the relative presence of businesses that qualify for federal subsidies, notably for agriculture, will also influence the level of federal expenditures. Lastly, the high concentration of militaryinstallations and civilian agencies within the State generate significant amounts of jobs, retirement and disability payments, and procurement contracts.
Saudi Arabian Armed Forces comprise Ar- my, Air Force, Navy and Royal Guard. Ac- cording to the report by the Global Institute in 2016, Saudi Arabian Army has 235 thou- sand ready troops (www.global.org). Saudi Arabian Army has 1210 tanks, 432 cannons, 6 thousand armor units, 322 missiles, 245 aircraft, 221 transport planes, 204 helicop- ters, 22 attack helicopters, 40 frigates and corvettes (Iranian Armed Forces News Bulle- tin, 2016). Training system of Saudi Arabian armed forces follows the western and Ameri- can one. Military training is held both in Saudi Arabia and the USA and allied coun- tries in Europe. Commander-in-Chief of the Saudi Arabian Armed Forces is the king who appoints four commanders among the mili- tary personnel of the House of Saud. Saudi Arabian defense policy is based on defensive deterrence. Saudi Arabia buys the latest and up to date weapons and military equipment, preferably from America and Europe to in- crease its defense power. The most important war strategy is based on airborne war and air superiority over traditional regional rivals. Annual military budget of Saudi Arabia is believed to be 57 billion dollars, which is among the highest military budget in the world.

Whilst area classification has been applied in the past to high pressure natural gas installations, the implementation of the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (DSEAR) has made it necessary to consider area classification for all pressures, including the lower pressures used for distribution and supply. The principal sources of guidance were increasingly regarded as over-conservative and their application at lower pressures, as a means of compliance with DSEAR, was seen as anomalous and problematical for both the industry and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
An investigation into the effects of pile jetting on pile capacity was conducted by Gunaratne et al. (1999) under sponsorship by Florida Department of Transportation. This study encompasses model piles installed using jetting techniques, preforming and dynamic driving methods. The purpose of the report is to determine the effect of jetting pressure and process on the lateral behavior and skin friction of piles; determine the zone of influence of jetting on soils adjacent to existing foundations; explore strength variation in soils due to jetting and preforming; develop an analytical model encompassing the effect of jetting on lateral and frictional behavior of piles. The scope of the aforementioned study differs from the research in the present report however, in that surface effects of jetting and installation practices and procedures were not considered. Attention to the jetting installations of the model test piles and experimental findings are considered in this literature review.
This webinar is an introduction to military, Veteran and family health research. The course will provide you with a foundation for health-related issues associated with experiences unique to military populations. It will address health impacts during active service as well as the health issues of Veterans and their families. Specialists from across the country will contextualize these unique experiences associated with military employment, current and down-stream health, and will introduce theoretical considerations and methodological approaches in conducting applied health research among military populations. Upon completion of the course, students will have a comprehensive understanding of the unique physical and mental health needs of current military personnel, Veterans and their families. Through empirical and clinical case studies, students will be expected to identify those needs and apply their newfound knowledge and understanding of military and Veteran’s health to the issues presented.
The existence of a huge number of euphemisms found its reflected even in the speeches of the famous American comedian George Carlin: she considers the term shell shock, which was widely used during the First World War to describe the state of severe stress, mental trauma resulting from participation in military actions. During the Second World War this state was called battle fatigue. The word fatigue itself produces a less vivid impression than the word shock, and it “masks” the state and “softens” the reality. During the military actions in Korea in 1950, a new phrase appeared - operational exhaustion, which “depersonalizes” the phenomenon itself, and it was called a term that sounds more like a description of the state of a machine or mechanism, rather than a person. Finally, during the Vietnam War the term post traumatic stress disorder appeared, which already so “softened” the meaning of this phenomenon and “masked”
particular case, I analyze the mediating process in art perception and the impact of interaction and communication on the audience-making process. The analysis shows that perception mediates audiences in opposing ways. During acts of audience perception and engagement with the installation, visitors transform abstract expectations that they have about artworks into a series of specific and situated actions. The dynamics of experience show that a shared reality of contested meanings of an artwork emerges in this process, which brings specific forms of artistic communication into being. I describe these processes as mediation of audiences. This study shows forms of artistic communication to be fragile and contingent, demonstrating how important is to look at the situated and practical work of the spectators and other actors when evaluating the sociological significance of art installations. This point starts to take us beyond the orthodox decoding model into what I believe are productive ways for future sociological studies to take account of art perception-in-the-making.
At the Rørbye exhibitions , our installations displayed two specific sketchbooks, integrated as elements in larger exhibitions. This confirmed our hypotheses about a strong interest among the audience to discover the complex and varied content of the sketchbooks, and it complemented well the static exhibiting of authentic the works; see Figure 7. We experienced also that the presence of an interactive installation created new social interactions among the visitors, guiding each other in its use, leading to conversations about what was seen in the book. In one exhibition a one-line instruction was given as part of the curator’s introduction to the sketchbook; in the other, there were no instructions, but a circular marking on the floor indicating a recommended position for browsing the book. The pattern of use were the same in both cases: the visitors found out themselves. Focusing the sensor on the natural (and marked) position of the visitor “in control” of the book reduced confusion to a minumum in case of several visitors watching the

structural dynamic response considering all the possible scenarios of seismic shaking. The high-frequency 3C excitations can cause significant SSI effects and structural rocking. More emphasis should be put on the properly modeling of dynamic response of NIs considering high frequency 3C motions. Attention should also be paid to the noticeable change (potential amplification) of near field motion when high frequency SV wave is incident to the SSI system of SMR. SMR is also stress tested with 3C seismic motions from incident SV wave at different angles of incidence. Vertical structural response is found to be highly dependent on the inclination angle of the incident SV wave. Incidence of SV wave at 45 ◦ results in the largest vertical structural deformation, while little vertical movement can be observed in the case of 80 ◦ incidence. Insights obtained from these stress tests can contribute to more economical and safe design of nuclear installations. ACKNOWLEDGMENT
The beginning of Conform's industrial development process dates back to the mid 1970s. During this period, several installations  for nonferrous metals extrusion were created. The operating practice of the majority of Conform machines' modifications exposed one of the reasons why the growth of their technical and economic performance was stunted. This primarily refers to the restriction of temperature and speed parameters of a deformation process and intense metal sticking on the tool caused by a considerable amount of heat generated from the deformation and forces of contact friction. Therefore, the solution to the problem of increasing the pressing speed at Conform installations by way of developing effective heat diversion systems from the deformation zone during metal extrusion is a pertinent question for researchers.
