Outlines are based on the principle of division: the Roman numerals are subdivisions of the thesis; the capital letters are subdivisions of the Roman numerals; the Arabic numbers are subdivisions of the capital letters, and so on. Thus, the progression of an outline is from general concepts to specific examples, all in logical relationship to each other. For example, in the above outline, not needing a driver’s license (II.A.1.) and the elimination of parking fees (II.A.2.) are two specific reasons why operating a bicycle is inexpensive (II.A). Being inexpensive to operate (II.A.) is one major reason why riding a bicycle is cost effective (II.) which, in turn, supports the assertion in the thesis that for most commuter college students, riding a bicycle to campus is more practical than driving a car. It is important that the logical relationship between ideas be clear in the outline (and, hence, the paper). Including key terms from the thesis in the outline divisions will
The second part examines the interrelationship of the ICC and the UNSC from the perspective of the United Nations Charter (UNC).
Therefore this part analyzes the powers and limits of the UNSC under the UNC. Consequently, this thesis, in due consideration of the princi- ple of judicial independence, provides answers to the question what le- gal consequences UNSC measures have on the ICC, including the point whether the UNSC can legally bind the ICC as an international organi- zation. Following that, the rights and obligations included in the Rome Statute are studied with regard to their compatibility with the UNC.
The safety, feasibility and echocardiographic results of this MitraClip® system were demonstrated in the Endovascular Valve Edge-to-Edge Repair Study (EVEREST) trials
30,31 . Also, in real-world registries good clinical outcomes have been described, particularly the COAPT and MITRA-FR trials are relevant in this regard and will be discussed in the final chapter of this thesis, but questions about the most appropriate patient population to treat and at what time to treat still need to be answered 32-34 .
The first part of this thesis focuses on cardiac CT in stable angina patients. We designed and performed the multicentre, randomized controlled CRESCENT trial to evaluate a cardiac CT work up, consisting of a calcium scan and selective CT angiography with standard functional testing in patients with suspected CAD. The results are presented in chapter 3. In a sub analysis of this trial (chapter 4) we investigate the gender differences in the performance of cardiac CT compared to functional testing. Chapter 5 shows the results of the randomized controlled IsoCOR trial comparing two contrast media with different osmolarity. The hypothesis was that if iso-osmolar contrast media is injected with a comparable iodine-delivery rate to low-osmolar contrast media, the coronary opacification is similar as with low-osmolar contrast media.

The outline that follows is designed as a starting point for individuals and groups wanting to begin an investigation into or just beginning to think about a presentation on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) as related to schools. It is organized to highlight keyquestions and concerns surrounding the topic.
ecological questions investigated have an applied aspect that relates to integrated pest management. Where possible I have highlighted what the conclusions mean for pest management in grain crops. I have focussed mainly on spiders throughout the thesis.
References are located at the end of each experimental chapter (Chapters two to 10) along with a single page summary of the major results and conclusions. Statistical analyses for the majority of the thesis (with the exception of the SADIE analysis in Chapter eight) were performed in the program S-Plus (Mathsoft 1999). Robust linear regression was frequently used to test linear relationships between variables. These models are useful for fitting linear relationships when the random variation in the data is not normal or when the data contains significant outliers. Standard error is used to show variation around a mean value throughout the course of the thesis.
4 What are eligible costs?
All costs must be eligible according to the national eligibility rules available under “National Eligibility Requirements”. The estimated budget must be given in Euros only and be tabulated according to the application template provided. For applicants from countries outside the Euro-zone, please transfer your budget to Euro and indicate the exchange rate used. In the Outline Proposal form only estimated costs need to specified, but these should still be as realistic as possible.
Conversely, radical changes in policies toward foreign business can occur in the most stable of the governments. Some of the African countries are among the unstable with seemingly unending civil wars, boundary disputes and oppressive military regimes. Like one of the region with the greatest number of questions concerning long-term stability is Hong Kong as since China has gained control, the official message is that nothing will change and thus everything is seemingly going smoothly but the political analysts say that it is too early to say how will the business climate change, if it will. If there is potential for profit and if given permission to operate within a country, MNCs can function under any type of government as
We’ll recommend the right BrandEquation for you, explain our rationale, and how to use each component to its fullest power.
How do we get there? Mission Minded has developed effective (and fun!) methodologies to gain these brand insights. We’re here to help you determine your BrandEquation and you’ll be best served by involving key staff and board members—the people critical to creating and activating your brand. The highly interactive BrandEquation session begins with a discussion about what brand is, why it’s important, and how it can help your organization be successful. We then move into exercises that draw out the insights that are the foundation for your brand, and identify the audiences critical to your organization’s success.
unidimensionality, which implies that the items comprising the scale reflect a sin- gle dimension or concept.
For the most part, you use scales and indices to measure attitudes and knowl- edge of a particular subject; for example, ideological attitudes, self-esteem con- cepts, knowledge about the U.S. Constitution, and knowledge about Third World economies. Indices and scales require you to use several questions to measure a concept. Think of these tools as tests. Your professor does not ask you a single question to determine your comprehension about a subject such as comparative politics. Likewise, you should not ask a single question to determine one’s knowl- edge about a particular phenomenon or attitude about political parties or public policy. A scale or index measuring political participation, for example, might involve questions about a person’s voting habits, whether they contribute to cam- paigns, the extent of their communication with elected officials, whether they attend political rallies or meetings, and whether they run for office. Several ques- tions will increase the reliability of your measurement tool by reducing possible error. They will also enhance the possibility that you are measuring what you intended to measure.
After you receive your major professor and second committee member appointments, you should discuss the composition of the remainder of your thesis committee with your major professor. For your third committee member, you will select a faculty member from the English Department who is not in creative writing, and your fourth committee member will be a faculty member from outside the department who can provide insight into the project. All four committee members must have graduate faculty status. Ideally, you will have already worked with the professors you request. We realize that this is not always possible. Regardless, you should contact potential committee members and ask them if they would be willing to serve on your committee. Professors may decline the request, depending on their current or future workloads, sabbatical plans, or suitability for the project. In your initial email to the prospective committee member, introduce yourself, briefly describe the thesis project, and explain why you believe the faculty member is a suitable choice. Then explain a timeline (projected semester of graduation) and the work and time commitment expected.
Culhane et al., 2014; Saito et al., 2015 for other approaches). Next- generation biomonitoring (NGB) describes a suite of tools and approaches that allow the examination of a broader spectrum of organizational levels—from genes to entire ecosystems. A more holistic vision of evaluating ecological structure and change has long been a goal of ecology, but only recently have the tools emerged to bring it toward fruition. In this issue of Frontiers in Ecology & Evolution, which explores the research topic, “A Next Generation of Biomonitoring to Detect Global Ecosystem Change,” we explore this complementary suite of new tools that could be forged into a global approach to biomonitoring. In this overview paper, we attempt to synthesize opinion on the key issues that are necessary to address en route to this next generation of biomonitoring tools. We focus on a key subset of these tools—those based on DNA metabarcoding as a new standard methodology for multiple taxonomic identifications—
