The rudiments of the doctrine of the Trinity appear in the writings of John and Paul. Both now and historically it has been important to become familiar with these truths about the essence of God because certain heresies have surfaced that contradict the idea of the Trinity. Both John and Paul were inspired by the Holy Spirit to write truths about God. The doctrine of inspiration tells us that the Holy Spirit guided them in writing these truths, but the ideas were formulated through the individual, unique personalities of each writer. In both John’s and Paul’s writings we see the special relationship between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit being three unique Persons, but one in essence. It is clearly shown that John and Paul ascribed deity to the Son and Holy Spirit as well as to the Father, and this is one of the most vitally important truths to understand in order to know the true nature of God. These important concepts are highlighted and compared and contrasted in this book.

Assignment is a crucial topic in commercial law, and this new work by Gregory Tolhurst is the most comprehensive work on the assignment of contractual rights ever published. It seeks to explain the existence, meaning and application of the rules governing the assignment of contractual rights and it does this by reference to the idea that assignments involve transfers. The book is logically structured to follow the issues that arise in planning, drafting and enforcing an assignment, including: - what is meant by 'assignment'; - what is the distinction between legal and equitable assignments; - how an assignable contractual right is identified; - what formalities apply to assignment; and - what rights and remedies are available to the parties to an assignment. The topic of assignment is of such universal importance to commercial lawyers that all practicing lawyers will find this work invaluable. However, the work will also be required reading for academics teaching contract, equity and personal property.
In the year of 2000, the ECJ delivered a well-known judgement among European lawyers, Angonese, which indeed recognised horizontal direct effect of community law among private parties in the field of free movement of workers. The ECJ thus held that a job applicant could sue a private bank before the national court on the basis of the prohibition of discrimination in Article 39 of the EC Treaty. Commentators argue that this is a landmark judgment and that “Mr. Angonese will now join the annals of community law pioneers". The essential purpose of this book is to provide for an examination and critical analysis of the concept of horizontal direct effect in the field of free movement of workers, in particular to analyse in what manner the ECJ legally justified the recognition of this concept in relation to Article 39 EC.
The book analyses the doctrine of constructive resignation and discusses the extent to which the doctrine applies in Malawi.

It takes a highly comparative approach and presents arguments in an amazingly clear fashion. It is a MUST-read for those who have a keen interest in learning employment law, and the interface between employment law, constitutional law and legal theory.
The focus area of this paper is on the assignment problem with budget constraints which is one of the application area of combinatorial optimization that operates on the domain of those optimization problems,in which the set of feasible solutions is discrete or can be reduced to discrete,and in which the goal is to find the best solution. It is particularly concerned with solving the unconstrained assignment problems with Hungarian algorithm and the constrained assignment problem by cutting plane or outer linearization algorithm for solving the Lagrangian dual problem in which, at each iteration,the function that approximates the dual function is optimized. The paper is divided in to two chapters. In the first chapter,the classical assignment problem,the problem of finding optimum (minimum or maximum) cost or profit assignment a set of workers or resources to jobs or activities to gather with its mathematical formulation,solution methods and special cases in assignment problems were considered. Under the second chapter, we have considered generalization of the classical assignment problem concerning resource(or budget) constraints, due to the variety of real life problems.
The present book is an effort to trace the origin of the doctrine of essential facilities. The origin of the doctrine could be traced back to the US markets. The present book looks at the origin, evolution and current status of the doctrine of essential facilities. The concept as it developed in the US and EU overtime has gained in force all over the globe. The book explains that the doctrine is not established law but is nevertheless useful in determining the contours of effective and competitive business.
The games Michael is playing have become all too real. Only weeks ago, sinking into the Sleep was fun. The VirtNet combined the most cutting-edge technology and the most sophisticated gaming for a full mind-body experience. And it was Michael’s passion. But now every time Michael sinks, he risks his life. The games are over. The VirtNet has become a world of deadly consequences, and Kaine grows stronger by the day. The Mortality Doctrine – Kaine’s master plan – has nearly been realized, and little by little the line separating the virtual from the real is blurring. If Kaine succeeds, it will mean worldwide cyber domination. And it looks like Michael and his friends are the only ones who can put the monster back in the box – if Michael can figure out who his friends really are.
One of the most fundamental privileges of being a Christian is the fact of being a child of God. Through adoption, God declares believers to be His children and accepts them into the wonderful fellowship of his own family – the church. But there are many Christians that are yet to grasp this doctrine and thus they fail to enjoy the astonishing privileges of salvation and to live worthy of the gospel. For most African Christians, one reason for this is that the idea of adoption itself barely exists in their cultures, or if it does, it carries a different meaning. This is as a result of the fact that African societies are communal and life as well as relationships is strongly built on kinship ties. This research shows how the conception of family or community in Africa obscures the idea of adoption thereby hampering the understanding and conceptualization of the biblical doctrine of spiritual adoption. Yet, as the research argues, a correct and biblical understanding of the doctrine is critical in helping Christians to fully grasp and appreciate the wonder of the gospel of salvation in our Lord Jesus Christ.
In the contract of affreightment, there are many implied obligations applied unless the parties have agreed otherwise. The obligation not to deviate from the agreed route is one of the most important undertakings of the shipowner and the carrier. The doctrine of deviation has been regarded as a long-established doctrine in English maritime law, and its application is still controversial in court’s decisions.From the dissertation for Master of Laws (LL.M.) course, it becomes a highly accessible text for a reader interested in the subject. The book will provide a clear and comprehensive explanation of the doctrine of deviation including its evolution, consequences and recent application under the relevant law. Attention is also devoted to practical issues regarding the liberty to deviate clause and its interpretation by the court. A seperate chapter will deal with the legal effect of deviation on exclusion clauses and the contract of carriage of goods by sea. Throughout, the possible effect of the doctrine in the future will be discussed.
"The book breaks a new ground through the invention of the word 'otualogy. It represents a variation on the received task of a western theology which is expressed in conversation with Tongan cultural and social realities. It considers how the doctrine of God was 'miss-given' by the missionaries, 'miss-taken' by the Tongan hierarchy and thus 'miss-placed' subsequently in culture. The argument seeks to move away from linear line of thought and engage with a 'tidalectic' series of ebbing waves and flows. This book is unique insofar as its consideration of the missional legacy and consequences is through a theological doctrine rather than an historical study or through biblical hermeneutics. The argument is set within a wider context of international theological scholarship." Clive Pearson, Head of School of Theology, Charles Sturt University
The book explains the concept of commandresponsibility which is reflected in the statutes ofinternational criminal courts and tribunals that hearcases arising under international humanitarian law(for examples Article 28 of the Statute of theInternational Criminal Court, Article 6(3) of theStatute of the International Criminal Tribunal forRwanda and Article 7 of the Statute of theInternational Criminal Tribunal for the FormerYugoslavia), the superior would beresponsible under a theory of individual or personalcriminal responsibility. It will analyse a briefhistorical discussion and one recent case of thedoctrine of command responsibility with particularhighlight on its application as reflected in thejurisprudence of the International Criminal Tribunalfor the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and theInternational Criminal for Rwanda (ICTR).
Assignment Problem is one of the first fundamental problems in the area of combinatorial optimization. Despite its historical roots, the problem has tremendous importance to date, due to its numerous real life applications in like facility location, personnel scheduling, job scheduling, production planning, project assignment, task assignment, time-tabling, vehicle routing, storage space allocation, etc. This book comprises some real life assignment and related problems involving imprecise cost/time parameters. In order to represent those imprecise parameters, interval numbers have been used here as this representation is the best among others. The associated problems have been solved using Genetic Algorithm efficiently. A salient feature of this book is that most of the algorithms have been written in a lucid manner with suitable examples using figures. This book should interest academicians, OR/GA practitioners and executives of different industries and business organizations.
In recent years, we have witnessed a tremendous growth of communication networks. This is because they are widely used in all walks of life, and this trend continues increasing. The research on computer communication networking field has also grown explosively due to a large variety of combinatorial optimisation problems. One of these problems is the Terminal Assignment Problem which implies fixing the minimum cost links to construct a network between a specified set of terminals and concentrators. A good solution for this problem should maintain small distances between concentrators and terminals assigned to them without exceeding the capacity of any concentrator. Additionally, it should also maintain a balanced distribution of terminals among concentrators. The intractability of this problem is a motivation for the pursuits of different approximation algorithms. In this book, we explore several metaheuristics applied to the Terminal Assignment Problem and other similar problems. Simulation results verify the effectiveness of these algorithms.

The problem of distributing goods from depots to consumers plays an important role in the management of many distribution systems, and therefore when it is programmed efficiently it may yield significant savings. In a typical distribution system, trucks provide pick-up and delivery services to customers that are geographically dispersed in a given area. In many of its applications, the main objective of distribution is to find a set of routes for such trucks, satisfying a variety of constraints, so as to minimize the total distribution cost. This work focuses on a decision model for a real world problem. The problem reveals itself as assignment of trucks to routes by Latex Foam Rubber Products Limited-Kumasi, Ghana. This study addresses the problem of finding an efficient assignment of the limited number of trucks at the company’s disposal to the routes they ply while serving its customers outside the metropolis. In this work we use a solution procedure based on Munkres Assignment Algorithm for optimal assignment of non-homogenous fleet of trucks to a given set of routes, where Latex Foam Rubber Products Limited-Kumasi, distributes its products to its customers.
Around the world in Britain, the United States, Asia and the Middle East, there are people with power who are cashing in remake our world in their image. They are the shock doctors. Thrilling and revelatory, THE SHOCK DOCTRINE: THE RISE OF DISASTER CAPITALISM cracks open the secret history of our era. Exposing these global profiteers, Naomi Klein discovered information and connections that shocked even her about how comprehensively the shock doctors' beliefs now dominate our world - and how this domination has been achieved. Raking in billions out of the tsunami, plundering Russia, exploiting Iraq - this is the chilling tale of how a few are making a killing while more are getting killed.
A wireless mesh networks (WMNs) has emerged recently, WMN consist of two types of nodes mesh routers and mesh clients.WMN is dynamically self-organized and self-configured, with the nodes in the network automatically establishing and maintaining mesh connectivity among themselves. Channel assignment is a critical issue in WMN which is the mapping between the available channels and the radios at each node such that the network performance is optimized, and hence the focus of this work along with static channel assignment, multi-radio, multi-channel. Multi-radio MAC can potentially achieve higher network capacity than single-radio MAC. We design and implement a new agent (DSBCA) distributed channel assignment spanner base, the routing protocol Optimize the network performance considering the throughput, end-to-end delay, connectivity and the interference of our channel assignment algorithm. Base on the network simulations NS2.34 on Linux Fedora and our proposed channel assignment algorithm improved the throughput, minimal-connectivity preserving channel assignment algorithm.
Modern day public transport assignment faces lots of problems. Solutions may exist but needs some form of backings. A sensitivity analysis in most cases could just be sufficient to provide this backing. The developments in this book are very important for students, academic researchers and policy makers. The book provides an extensive review on transit assignment, sensitivity analysis and OmniTRANS. It highlights important conclusions such as:- - Passenger access-egress distances significantly affects their access stop choices. - The travel distance parameter of the generalized cost function has the highest influence on transit assignment - The number of transfers to be made by passengers significantly determines their generalized cost of travel - A carefully conducted partial sensitivity analysis can provide better predictions than a Monte-Carlo sensitivity analysis. As a policy advice to public transport operators in Flanders-Belgium, the developments in this book suggest that; to improve transit assignment, it is sufficient to reduce passengers access-egress distances & the number of transfers either through the institution of more direct transit lines or missing links.
Tracing the development of Soviet strategic doctrine over a span of seventy years, from the Frunze-Trotsky debate to the Gorbachev era, the author draws on the available resources to vividly narrate the Soviet security policy. The focus of the book is the main emphasis of the post-war period when there was a marked tension between the Party and the military, especially during the period from Khrushchev to Brezhnev. The author assesses the restructuring of the strategic regime during the Gorbachev period to show the moral pressure put on the West by the moral posturing of the Soviets beginning from late 1980s. The different institutional mechanism and procedures at the disposal of the Party and the Soviet Government have been comprehensively analyzed. The book provides a cogent analysis of the superpower rivalry in the arms race during the Cold War period and its concurrent economic strain on Soviet Union which will be a useful input for strategic studies.
