Although words themselves cannot be owned it is when they become a compilation of words authors would normally become the owner, author and therefore retain copyright over the work. Currently this does not relate to the media release produced by public relations professionals. While it is not the purpose of this book to simplify the media release authorship, ownership and copyright issue because it is a complex one, it is the intention of this book to raise and discuss the complex relationship that exists between the media release, public relations practitioners and journalists because it is exists outside the normal boundaries of ownership, authorship and copyright.The automatic assumption of authorship, ownership and copyright being waived and therefore assigned to another person(s) may have long term ramifications that have not yet been realized.
The old train station in Celesteville stands empty – should it be torn down? ‘No!' declare Celeste and Babar, who decide to turn it into an art museum. Their children (like many young museum-goers) have a lot of questions about art: Does it have to be pretty? Does it have to be old? Does it have to make sense? Celeste's patient answers explain the basic ideas of art appreciation. Babar and Celeste's generous donations to the new museum include witty and striking elephant-inspired versions of Michelangelo's Creation of Man, Georges Seurat's Sunday on La Grande Jatte and Botticelli's Birth of Venus, along with many other celebrated paintings. Children and adults will want to visit Babar's Gallery again and again!

In this book we have shown what others have done in regard to enhancing SCTP's retransmission time-out performance, and how their approaches are different from ours. We have also shown how the Adaptive RTO algorithm helps improve the SCTP's performance in contrast to the existing implementation. Significant amount of data were gathered in order to show that we have improved the transfer rate in SCTP by about 5%, in the scenario where the Adaptive RTO algorithm is implemented. We have been vigilant in making sure the Adaptive RTO algorithm does not unnecessarily clog network's bandwidth, and that the current implementation of RTO MIN can be safely replaced with the Adaptive RTO algorithm. Furthermore, we have done extensive testing of the Adaptive RTO algorithm in respect to multiple scenarios.We have also shown that the Adaptive RTO algorithm does not clog network's bandwidth under any conditions. This is an evolutionary research. This book does not solve all the problems but sets up additional studies and hypothesis.
Apparel manufacturing is a labour intensive assembly line process requiring significant amounts of repetitive, skilled manipulation. Various studies have identified relatively high frequencies of musculoskeletal discomfort among sewing machine operators. The tailors (sewing machine operators) used foot-operated sewing machines with the machine serving as work table. From the diverse seating devices observed, no ergonomic considerations were made in the selection, purchase and fabrication of these seating devices. There is hence reason to suspect that various non-ergonomic types of sitting devices could be partly responsible for the musculoskeletal discomforts among sewing machine operators.it was hypothesised that since sewing machine operators performed repetitive movement is order to operate the foot pedal, it could lead to repetitive stress injury at the ankle joint.

This book explores the intricacies of the technology adoption process in rural based cassava processing systems in southwest Nigeria. Most processors in southwest Nigeria(57.74%) have adopted the cassava grater and 50.19% have adopted the screw press. Other cassava processing innovations that they are aware of are the improved method of cassava processing to gari, fufu, flour, chips and starch. Across all the agro-ecological zones, 77.36% of the processors claim that there are no cassava processing innovations they know that they did not adopt thus indicating that it is important that they have access to trying and using cassava processing technologies under convenient arrangements. The predominant technology development approach in the cassava processing sector is dictated and dominated by the research subsystem. This finding exemplifies a traditional technology development process to which cassava processors have resigned and where a top-down information flow has been accepted as the norm.The book proposed three complementary approaches for promoting cassava processing innovations: the innovation mapping approach, communication approach and “meeting the expectations” approach.
