Purpose – This paper aims to outline and discuss how to incorporate the stakeholder perspective into performance measurement framework to enhance program effectiveness, accountability and understanding in relation to human development issues. Design/methodology/approach – An examination of the literature and a review of best practices was undertaken to identify relevant performance measurements and indicators that could be utilized to measure incremental results and impacts related to poverty reduction strategies. Findings – Credible demonstration of policy or program impacts for poverty reduction are dependent on understanding the distinction between inputs, outputs, outcomes and indicators. Moreover, to be trusted by the public, performance reporting on poverty reduction needs to focus more selectively on identifying the key measures of performance and the engagement of key constituents.

Purpose – The aim of the research is to identify the knowledge management (KM) governance configuration of an organisation and to investigate its impact on the development of knowledge management in the organisation. Design/methodology/approach – Case research methodology has been adopted using data obtained from interviews with key personnel involved in the knowledge management of the organisation. Findings – Findings show the particular importance of the centralised structure of the KM function for the creation of synergies among the different KM aspects; and the importance of leadership, communication and coordination to integrate other functions and to promote KM aspects in the organisation. Research limitations/implications – Even though data has been obtained from several interviewees and secondary data, additional interviews with other key players of the KM initiative might have provided additional insights.
The development of methods to culture intact viable tissue is integral to understanding mechanisms of disease. Mature lung tissue, in particular, is difficult to maintain for any extended period of time in culture due to collapse of airspaces and rapid tissue necrosis. In the present stud, we report the methodology for culturing whole lung tissue in vitro using low-melt agarose to maintain lung airspaces open and viable. Perfused rat lungs were inflated in situ with a warm liquid low-melt agarose solution. Upon cooling, the agarose polymerizes maintaining the airspaces in a open state and allows thin sections of lung to be cut and cultured in a defined environment. Viability of the cultured lung tissue was assessed biochemically.

Last week Mattt Thompson wrote a post on his amazing NSHipster blog about new SDKs in iOS 7. Like with all NSHipster posts I eagerly read through it to learn about all the amazing hidden gems that Mattt finds, and like all those before it this article did not disappoint! There were several . I use text to speech all the time on my Mac, in fact I’m using it right now to proof read this post :) I use ctrl+a to select all the text then option+esc to have Alex start reading it to me. If you’re not familiar with text to speech on the mac it’s one of my favorite life hacks of all time! In addition to listing things other people have written I also use it to proof read what I’ve written. I should write a post about dyslexia, but here’s the short of it. Ok back to Hark, so we’ve established that text to speech is awesome :) so when I saw this new API I knew I had to write an app around it so I could proof read important messages on the go before I sent them out.
I gave my first iOS related tech talk yesterday at Alt Tech Talks London, which was a blast, especially to share the stage with such accomplished people in the iOS community. As I said in my talk, transitions are important, and the flexibilty brought on by the opening up of the transition system in iOS 7 has created some opportunities for developers to make their apps standout and provide a better experience for their users. Ironically, I built my presentation as a series of videos, animations, and transitions, and so it doesn’t really make sense to post the slides as a flat PDF. Instead I’ve posted an Xcode project that includes all the code so that you can open it up and fiddle around with it, read the comments, or use it as a basis for transitions in your own apps.

It's Here: A new look for the Purdue OWL! The new version of the Purdue OWL is available at Worry not! Our navigation menu and content will remain largely the same. In 6 days, we will be discontinuing owl.english.purdue.edu and you will be automatically redirected to the new site. Summary: This handout discusses the differences between indefinite articles (a/an) and definite articles (the). Contributors:Paul Lynch, Allen Brizee, Elizabeth AngeliLast Edited: 2018-02-14 03:18:17 What is an article? English has two articles: the and a/an. the = definite article a/an = indefinite article For example, if I say, "Let's read the book," I mean a specific book. Here's another way to explain it: The is used to refer to a specific or particular member of a group. "A/an" is used to refer to a non-specific or non-particular member of the group. Let's look at each kind of article a little more closely. Indefinite Articles: a and an "My daughter really wants a dog for Christmas."
English Grammar | LearnEnglish | British Council | definite article: the
The definite article the is the most frequent word in English. We use the definite article in front of a noun when we believe the hearer/reader knows exactly what we are referring to. • because there is only one: The Pope is visiting Russia.The moon is very bright tonight.The Shah of Iran was deposed in 1979. This is why we use the definite article with a superlative adjective: He is the tallest boy in the class. • because there is only one in that place or in those surroundings: • because we have already mentioned it: A woman who fell 10 metres from High Peak was lifted to safety by a helicopter. We also use the definite article: • to say something about all the things referred to by a noun: The wolf is not really a dangerous animal (= Wolves are not really dangerous animals) The kangaroo is found only in Australia (= Kangaroos are found only in Australia) The heart pumps blood around the body. (= Hearts pump blood around bodies) • to refer to a system or service: • newspapers: • organisations:
The 3 articles in English are a, an and the. The learner has to decide noun-by-noun which one of the articles to use*. In fact, there are 4 choices to make, because sometimes no article is necessary. The most important first step in choosing the correct article is to categorize the noun as count or uncount in its context**: - A count noun is a noun that can have a number in front of it: 1 teacher, 3 books, 76 trombones, 1,000,000 people. - An uncount noun is a noun that cannot have a number put in front of it: 1 water, 2 lucks, 10 airs, 21 oils, 39 informations. Uncount nouns You cannot say a/an with an uncount noun.You cannot put a number in front of an uncount noun. Count nouns You can put a number in front of a count noun. Note: The above rules apply whether there is or there is not an adjective in front of the noun.Some nouns can be either count or uncount, depending on the context and meaning: Do you have paper?

The Indefinite Article – A / AN We use A/AN with: 1. Singular nouns and the first time we refer to a person, animal or thing. a child an elephant a television 2. My shirt is dirty. 3. There is only one exit from the airport. What is the difference between A and AN? A is used when the next word begins with a consonant sound (b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k etc). a book a table a clock a university (because the beginning of university sounds like YOU-niversity) AN is used when the next word begins with a vowel sound (a, e, i, o, u). an apple an elephant an umbrella an hour (because the H is silent) Try our game to practice the difference between A and AN. The Definite Article – THE We use THE with: 1. There is a lamp in my bedroom. 2. We watched the new Brad Pitt movie last night. 3. She plays the piano. 4. the sun the moon the internet. 5. The Mississippi River The Black Sea The Andes The Sahara Desert 6. the west the south-east the north-west. No Article We use no article with: 1. Religion is an important issue.
Articles - Definite, Indefinite and No Article
A(AN) can be used like the word "per". Examples: Apples currently cost $1.30 a pound. Cheetahs can run 60 miles an hour. You want $150 a person for the tour? Use THE with nouns modified by ranking or ordering expressions such as "the first", "the second", "the third", "the next", "the last", "the previous", "the following", "the penultimate", etc. This is the fifth day of our conference. Use THE with superlatives such as "the best", "the biggest", "the most important", "the least interesting", etc. This is the best day ever. Comparative forms, such as "bigger", "better", "more" can be used with both A(AN) and THE and follow general article usage. I like the bigger roller coaster. HOWEVER: THE is often used with comparative forms (bigger) rather than superlative forms (biggest) when comparing only two things. Jessie and Shauna are both smart. Do not use articles when generalizing about uncountable nouns and plural countable nouns. Curiosity is a great trait. I play the piano. Dr.
