In a statement, NYPD Assistant Commissioner J. Peter Donald called the report inaccurate and misleading, noting that the DOI did not speak with top NYPD officials, including Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce, who oversees the Special Victims Division. Donald also addressed the report’s criticisms about training, calling the detectives on the team the “best trained […]

This is mobile with tents, wagons, and makeshift movable walls with plenty of guards on watch. The town is constantly on the move going one direction. They aren too worried about weapons or magic, and over estimate their own power while the prisoners underestimate themselves. NNo matter what you use to create, if you really […]

This paper addresses the problem of how to represent negated statementsinvolving constants, thus asserting the absence of specific individuals, in the context of Euler diagram based logics. Our first contribution is to explore the potential benefits of explicitly representing absence using constants, in terms of clutter reduction, and to highlight ontological issues that arise. We […]

The most important parameter that affects the ability to hear and understand speech in the presence of background noise is the signal to noise ratio (SNR). Despite decades of research in speech intelligibility, it is not currently known how much improvement in SNR is needed to provide a meaningful benefit to someone. We propose that […]

Here, the behaviour and benefits of a system with an electrically driven, fixed displacement pump and a distributor providing control over flow to crankshaft main bearings and big end bearings is examined. The aim has been to demonstrate that by controlling flow to these bearings, without changing flow to other parts of the engine, significant […]

We present a new pixelized method for the inversion of gravitationally lensed extended source images which we term adaptive semi linear inversion (SLI). At the heart of the method is an h means clustering algorithm which is used to derive a source plane pixelization that adapts to the lens model magnification. The distinguishing feature of […]

The debate has generally been in stark oppositional terms, between those who claim to stand for ‘merit’ and those who claim allegiance to higher norms of ‘social justice’. Opponents of reservations allege that firm quotas severely compromise standards of excellence, and that insofar as meritorious candidates are excluded in favor of less ‘qualified’ applicants who […]
