East Yorkshire University is a tertiary education establishment in Kingston, a city on the East coast of England. In recent years the organisation has undergone rapid and traumatic transformation, from a College of Higher Education to a Polytechnic, and now to a University. The reasons for these changes have been mainly political, central government wresting control of some higher level educational establishments from local authorities.

However, this government inspired move resulted in the University losing £3.5m annual 'topping up' funds from the local authority, but also meant that the institution had the potential to be more flexible in its operations and offer serious cost effective competition to the older established Universities. The new Universities (formerly Polytechnics) operate basically on very high student/staff ratios and offer little in the way of serious academic research, hence their cost structures are somewhat lower than the older Universities, which generally operate on much lower student/staff ratios and attach much greater importance to research.

When East Yorkshire University was a College of Higher Education it was organised on five different sites (one of them 35 miles away in Gormsby). Subsequent to the granting of Polytechnic status (in 1990) the institution was consolidated onto just three (all within walking distance of each other) and all located in close proximity to the University of Kingston (12,500 students). East Yorkshire University's new status came at a time when it had over 7,500 Full Time Equivalent (FTE) students and has set itself an objective of achieving a 60% increase in those numbers in the subsequent 8 years.

The city of Kingston also has an enterprising Further Education College which mainly offers courses up to, and including, "A" level standard, but which offers some post "A"…...

Pan Slavism

...Austrian Empires, thus liberating the Slavic peoples and hence gaining their support. He would free Poland, along with every other Slav occupied country. Some people saw Pan-Slavism as the freeing of non-Russian Slavs from their Ottoman, German, and Austro-Hungarian rulers. Not everyone agreed with the intentions of Pan-Slavism. Some people did not think that that the Slavs were one nation. Karel Havlicek, a Czech journalist shared this belief. He believed that nationality was not only determined by language, but also by customs, religion, government, and way of education. In 1848, he published an article called "Slav and Czech", in which he stated that the name Slav is and should always remain a geographical name. Bulgarian poet, Christo Boter, who strongly believed that only small federations of Slavs, in accordance to location should be built, shared a similar yet different view. This is because if only small federations of Slavs would be built, then the Slavs within these federations would share similar beliefs, culture, and political systems. As a result, no nationality would be offended. In addition, not every Russian wanted the uniting of other Slavs with Russia. In 1915, Gabriel de Wesselitsky, a Russian journalist, declared that that Pan-Slavism was supported by only the weakest and most oppressed. He argued that the supporters of Pan-Slavism would visit Russia to complain of their suffering and discrimination, and try to unsuccessfully provoke Russian......

...voor mensen met spijsverteringsstoornissen en voor zuigelingen. De eiwitten in melk zijn onderverdeeld in caseïne, serumeiwitten en reststikstof. De caseïne is de grondstof voor kaas en wordt daarom ook wel kaasstof genoemd. Lactose wordt ook wel melksuiker genoemd. Dit wordt door melkzuurbacteriën omgezet in melkzuur bij de verwerking van de melk tot karnemelk, kwark en yoghurt. De belangrijkste zouten in melk zijn die van calcium, kalium, natrium en magnesium en komen voor als fosfaten, nitraten en chloriden. Geitenmelk heeft een iets hoger gehalte aan calcium en fosfaten dan koemelk. Geitenmelk is witter dan koemelk. Dit komt doordat geiten alle caroteen (de oranje kleurstof in worteltjes) uit het voer omzetten in vitamine A. Ook boter en kaas bereid met geitenmelk is wit, maar door de bereidingswijze kan het van kleur veranderen. Geitenmelk bevat vier keer zoveel vitamine A, twee keer zoveel vitamine D en iets minder foliumzuur dan koemelk. Verder bevat geitenmelk het dubbele aan waardevolle mineralen en weinig zout. En uit wetenschappelijk onderzoek blijkt dat geitenmelk een stuk gezonder is dan koemelk.[1] Voor bepaalde klachten, zoals koemelkallergie, astma, eczeem, acne, migraine, darm- en gewrichtsklachten is geitenmelk gezond.[bron?] Dit komt vooral door de eiwitsamenstelling. De klachten kunnen volledig verdwijnen door het gebruik van geitenmelk.[bron?]...

The Gathering Storm look at the seal. Sabinus looked at Vespasian. ‘?There’?s only one way to find out, are you up to opening private letters from a member of the imperial family, little brother?’? Vespasian contemplated that for a moment. ‘?If we don’?t open it we won’?t know who to deliver it to.’? He broke the seal, then scanned the scroll and whistled softly. ‘?Well?’? Magnus asked. ‘?It’?s to Poppaeus, and it’?s not signed by Claudius but by someone called Boter, and apart from the greeting and the signature it seems to be all in a code of some sort.’? ‘?Now that is interesting,’? Sabinus mused. ‘?Boter is one of Claudius’? freedmen; I’?ve not met him, but Pallas knows him. A few years back he got Claudius’? first wife pregnant. Surprisingly, Claudius didn’?t do anything to Boter at the time, but now I think I can see why: with that sort of hold over the man Claudius can use him to do his dirty work, then if it goes wrong he can distance himself from it by saying that he’?s been set up by a resentful member of his household. Boter goes down and Claudius has his revenge and is in the clear at the same time. Very crafty.’? ‘?Do you think that he could be going behind Claudius’? back?’? Magnus asked. ‘?He could be; Pallas says that he’?s very ambitious.’? Sabinus stopped and thought for a few moments. ‘?No, he wouldn’?t have used Claudius’? seal if he was; this letter must have been written with Claudius’? knowledge. However, as it isn’?t signed by Claudius but bears his seal......

...klotter och slangord. Han visste inte vad de betydde och försökte slå upp dem, men de fanns inte i några ordböcker. Därför gjorde han till sin uppgift att ta reda på var de kom ifrån. – För mig har de allra fulaste orden inget med sex att göra, utan det är att man missbrukar ord som: alltså, liksom, precis, jätte… och ”bah” och när man sätter in dem i sammanhang där de inte hör hemma. Det tycker jag är väldigt störande. Det är ungefär detsamma som någon som svär i var och varannan mening, Bengt Dagrin. I bondesamhället blev ord som kuk och röv fula och betraktades så småningom både som folkligt och vulgärt när de högre stånden påtalade det och med markeringar bestämde vad som ingick i ett vårdat språk. Svärandet kunde bestraffas med böter och med uteslutande ur den sociala och kyrkliga gemenskapen. Vi sysslar fortfarande med straffmetoder för den som är ful i mun. En tvåspråkig man i medelåldern berättade för mig nyligen att hans barn kräver att han skall böta tio kronor och lägga i en särskild burk varje gång han använder ett ord som motsvarar ”jävlar” på hemlands språk. Men att svära på fel ställe kan bli dyrt. Tennisspelaren Roger Federer fick böta drygt 10 000 kronor efter att han svurit åt domaren i US Open, tidigare i år. Svenska fotbollsförbundet har bestämt att domaren skall dela ut varningssignaler i form av färgade kort om spelarna svär. I dag finns det skolor som tagit efter systemet; tre gula kort och föräldrarna får ett svordomsbrev hem. I en skola......

...comers in this area have to consider very carefully the use of these modern channels. Since, the role of Internet marketing is to support the multi-channel marketing which is the combination of digital and traditional channels at different points in the buying cycle (Chaffey et al. 2006, xiv - xv). They have to understand which the main marketing channel is and which the supportive marketing channel is. Below is some results drawn from different articles and researches which touch upon different parameters that make many companies pursue Internet marketing. 3.1.1 Drivers for Internet marketing What are factors which drive many companies to apply the Internet marketing and how does the size of a company relate to these drives? Bengtsson, Boter, 14 Vanyushyn (2007, 27) who conducted a survey with various Swedish companies of different sizes, give their readers a set of quite satisfactory answers to these questions. Depending on the number of employees, the authors categorized them into three different sizes: small, medium and large (turnover and profit should be taken into consideration). They figure out that different factors drive different size companies to adopt Internet marketing including willingness to cannibalize, entrepreneurial drivers, management support, and market pressure. Besides that, they also find out which of these factors drive what size of companies. 3.1.2 Marketing channel preference Nowadays, many companies have to take the pros and cons of......

The aim of this work is to theoretically derive significant factors related to working capital management which have an influence on the cash level of SMEs and test these in a large sample of Swedish manufacturing SMEs. The theoretical framework for this study consists of a treatise of motives for holding cash, working capital management and cash level. From these theoretical findings, two hypotheses are deduced: • H1: Cash holdings are negatively related to the presence of cash substitutes • H2: Cash holdings are positively related to working capital management efficiency The quantitative investigation consists of the statistical analysis – namely comparison of means and correlation analysis – of key figures which are calculated from the financial statements...

In vette vis als -paling, -zalm of -makreel zitten grotere hoeveelheden vitamine D. Deze vitamine is vetoplosbaar, dit betekent dat het het beste in je lichaam wordt opgenomen icm vet. Vaak zijn de producten al vettig van zichzelf denk aan boter, mayonaise en vis. Suiker is zodanig geraffineerd dat het niets bijdraagt aan het lichaam. Het levert geen eiwitten, essentiële vetzuren, vitamines noch mineralen. Eigenlijk zijn suikers ‘loze’ calorieën; calorieën zonder voedzame stoffen.
Bij de omzetting van suiker en andere geraffineerde koolhydraten (bijv. koek, chips, snoep) worden micronutriënten zoals vitamines en mineralen aan het lichaam onttrokken. Als de reserves van deze bouwstoffen worden verbruikt, kunnen er tekorten aan verschillende micronutriënten ontstaan in het lichaam. Hierdoor heeft het lichaam meer behoefte aan voedzame producten.

...of aniline with nitric acid and sulfuric acid, according to one source [8] results in a 50/50 mixture of para and meta nitroaniline. In this reaction the fast-reacting and activating aniline (ArNH2) exists in equilibrium with the more abundant but less reactive (deactivated) anilinium ion (ArNH3+), which may explain this reaction product distribution. According to another source [9] a more controlled nitration of aniline starts with the formation of acetanilide by reaction with acetic anhydride followed by the actual nitration. Because the amide is a regular activating group the products formed are the para and ortho isomers. Heating the reaction mixture is sufficient to hydrolyze the nitroamide back to the nitroamine.In the Wolfenstein-Boters reaction, benzene reacts with nitric acid and mercury nitrate to give picric acid.------------------------------------------------- Ipso nitration[edit]With aryl chlorides, triflates and nonaflates ipso substitution can take place as well in so-called ipso nitration.[10] The phrase was first used by Perrin and Skinner in 1971 in an investigation into chloroanisole nitration [11] In one protocol 4-chloro-n-butylbenzene is reacted with sodium nitrite in t-butanol in presence of 0.5 mol% Pd2(dba)3, a biarylphosphine ligand and a phase-transfer catalyst to 4-nitro-n-butylbenzene [12]------------------------------------------------- References[edit] 1.
