Design visualization is at the heart of Morgan Motor Company’s development process C harles Morgan of legendary British car manufacturer, Morgan Motor Company, says his favorite Morgan car is the one that hasn’t been built yet. And he sees a lot of these. With Autodesk software running on HP Z Workstations with NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla GPUs, Morgan’s design department produces stunning visualizations of multiple new car designs before they are even built. “In the same amount of time it previously would have taken us to create one visual, we’re able to make many much higher quality visuals and do several different proposals,” says Jon Wells, senior designer, Morgan Motor Company, who uses NVIDIA iray, the GPU-accelerated renderer in 3ds Max Design, to produce photorealistic renderings. “When we’re doing iray renderings, we can render some fantastically beautiful outcomes almost in real-time,” he explains. “As we turn the model, we can capture a shot of what that would look like rendered up. We can spin it again and see that again in a different guise.” Wells heads up a team of designers who together with the engineering team present new formal design reviews to Morgan’s directors and shareholders. Doing this in an interactive 3D environment inside Autodesk Showcase pays big dividends. “We’re all putting across our ideas and we have to do this concisely and accurately. The best piece of equipment we have in our arsenal to do this is the new Z1 Workstation from HP,” he says. “When paired with a NVIDIA Quadro graphics card, we’re able to show ideas in great speed and accuracy, spin around 3D models on a very high definition, high-resolution screen. The people can really fully get to understand what it is that we’ve been working on. “Everyone gathers around and we pitch and we talk and we present our ideas. And everyone leaves, I believe, with a great understanding of what the final project’s going to look like, even though they’ve not spent any of their money yet.” www.morgan-motor.co.uk

Dress Code Attire that is inappropriate for the occasion or deviates from modesty in the judgment of a school administrator will result in being denied admission. This includes guests from other schools. For boys, tuxedos or suits including jackets, ties, socks and dress shoes are required. Young men are to be clean-shaven, meet school guidelines regarding length and style of hair, and are not to wear earrings. No hats or canes allowed in the dance. For girls, dresses and attire that reflect modesty are required. Each year, the most difficult task for administrators is the determination of modesty for girls. Traditional interpretations are often at odds with fashion and cultural trends. Each year, girls are turned away or asked to modify. This is easily avoidable if the following guidelines are observed: o Prom attire should reflect more a formal family occasion (like a wedding) rather than a night on the town or at a dance club. o Dresses that are too revealing, are skin tight or form-fitting, expose midriffs or cleavage, or are too short in length are not appropriate. o Claims that a dress was worn at last year’s Prom or at Homecoming, or comparisons to the dresses of other girls already admitted to Prom will not be entertained or discussed. (Claiming that “others were speeding” rarely works when pulled over by police.) o Modesty is admittedly a subjective interpretation, but one which we have a duty to uphold. Girls should therefore err on the side of modesty and formality and not put school administrators in the difficult position of upholding school standards. Having been specifically forewarned, I expect nothing less than full cooperation from girls and their parents on this issue. Specifics for Dresses: Dress backs may not be lower than the elbow. Dresses may not be any shorter than 3” above the knee (or 3” below the middle finger for taller girls). This includes any slits in the dress. If you purchase a dress with a slit that does not meet those guidelines, you will need to have the slit sewn. Dresses must not be too tight or form-fitting. Dresses may not have cut-outs. Covering a cut-out with fabric will not suffice unless that fabric is permanently sewn into the dress. Dresses must not be low cut in the front. Be especially careful with halter-style dresses or strapless dresses with a sweetheart neckline. Appropriate under garments should be worn based on the style of the dress. Keep in mind that certain bras, padded busts, etc. can change the look of the dress.
Homecoming/Prom Dress Code In order to maintain a healthy, safe, and orderly environment, the following guidelines shall be used as standards at school dances. 1. Formal or semi-formal attire must be worn (dresses, dress pants, dress shirt, suit, tuxedo). Jeans will not be permitted. 2. Large coats will not be permitted. 3. Safe / appropriate footwear must be worn at all times. Sneakers may be worn, but formal footwear is preferable. 4. Proper and formal grooming is expected. 5. Undergarments must not be showing. 6. Appropriate length skirts and dresses may be worn. These garments must be mid-thigh length or longer. 7. No midriff can show (even when arms are raised). Two-piece dresses must overlap. Mesh/see-through inserts in the midriff are not allowed. 8. No skin can be shown in the chest area. Cleavage Rule: place thumbs on collarbone and touch index fingers together toward bust line. Where your fingers meet is how low your dress can go. 9. Back of dress must not be too low-cut or revealing. Back of dress should not go below natural waist. Corsets must be laced closed or adhere to open back rule. 10. No canes, hats or headwear are permitted. 11. Boys’ shirts must be buttoned up (and remain buttoned up) to at least the second button from the collar. 12. Shirts must stay on throughout the entire dance. 13. Pants should fit properly on the hip and not sag below the waistline.

DonateMyDress.org is the first national campaign designed to encourage girls around the country to donate their prom and special occasion dresses to those who cannot afford the costly experience of going to their prom, sweet 16, quinceañera, or formal. The site features a directory of local dress drive organizations across the U.S. that enables girls to easily find where in their local markets they can donate or receive a dress. DonateMyDress.org thrives on the dedication of volunteers who run dress drives nationwide. They work tirelessly to see that every girl in need receives the dress of her dreams, and they empower her to feel more glamorous and confident than ever before. The campaign also grows with the generosity of our corporate sponsors and individual donors, who are stylish women of all ages, as well as celebrities. DonateMyDress.org guides girls to take action, while linking them to the prom beauty and fashion resources on seventeen.com that will get them ready for their big night. DonateMyDress.org originated at Hearst Magazines and lives within the Hearst Teen Network, which is one of the top 10 ranked entertainment news Web sites, and one of the top 5 teen networks, according to ComScore Media Metrix. We are committed to raising awareness of dress donation while helping finance the drives’ operational costs through our Purple Dress Awards, which are grants funded by proceeds from our annual celebrity dress auction and corporate partnerships. If you are interested in joining the cause or starting a dress drive organization of your own, this guidebook will get you started!
Public confidence plays an important role in sustaining financial system stability. In normal times the regulation and supervision of banks, the promotion and use of standards of sound business and financial practice, central bank actions, explicit deposit protection and an effective bank closure mechanism all help to reduce the adverse consequences of a financial crisis emanating from bank failures. It is understood that banks, like other firms, will fail1 and the likelihood of this happening is higher when risks in a particular banking concern are not managed appropriately, bubbles in certain markets burst or financial markets are very fragile due to either domestic or foreign reasons. In almost all circumstances private sector solutions, such as rights issues or mergers, should be pursued in the first instance to deal with problem or failing banks, as in most cases they can limit the pressure on the financial system safety net (FSN). However, when problems become systemic governments tend to play a much more active role and call upon the agencies that make up the FSN to undertake extraordinary measures. Intervention can take a variety of forms. As such, there is a clear need for officials to undertake coherent contingency planning, financial risk assessment and crisis management. A significant development on that front has been the introduction of financial stability forums in the form of committees in individual countries to oversee agencies within the official safety net and improve how they govern macro-prudential and micro-prudential issues (Nier et al 2011).2 However, financial stability committees are not new and the reinvigoration of a formal oversight body is unlikely to fulfil all that is expected of it. This gives rise to an expectations gap, which we explore.
Updated, 11/1/2011 This is a guide to power electronics demonstration samples for Multisim/LabVIEW co-simulation. These new tools are intended to enable desktop development of power electronics control IP for LabVIEW FPGA, enabling you to develop/test/debug/validate before you compile to physical hardware. By exploring these samples, you can learn basic features of the co-simulation environment as well as the techniques you will need to accurately simulate LabVIEW FPGA control systems with your power electronics circuits. By exploring the samples and suggested exercises in this document with live interactive LabVIEW front panels, you can also enhance your intuitive understanding of the switch mode power electronics circuits and control systems. The goal of these graphical system design tools is to significantly accelerate the development of inverter control systems, by enabling you to develop your exact deployment code on the desktop (without long FPGA compiles), and using formal software verification techniques (build each IP block to specification and perform functional verification testing on the desktop whenever changes or updates are made). NI hopes the new tools will serve as a catalyst and platform for innovation and creativity and would like to invite you to expand and enhance the samples contained in this guide. We encourage you to develop, document and share through the online Power Electronics Development Center community site the following: 1. Power electronics circuit examples, 2. Power electronics control algorithms for LabVIEW FPGA, 3. Multisim power electronics component models, 4. Comparisons between physical test data and simulation results, and 5. Training materials or curriculum for industry professionals or university students. In some cases, you may be able to negotiate discounted access to the NI hardware and software tools to reward and encourage the development and sharing of valuable material for the power electronics developer community. Please email proposals to NI Clean Energy Product Manager, Brian.MacCleery@ni.com.
Please visit: http://www.watchpartsoutlet.com/. At present, the trend of buying watch bands online, is really on the high. If the band on your watch is too sizable, then you can get it diminished. This will be a cordial choice for those that are searching for a less formal attire.
Business people use informal methods to represent business processes (BP), having the main objective to support an enterprise organization. On the other hand, application software is increasingly based on Service Oriented Architectures, where the application logic is represented by executable BP (e.g., by using BPEL.) Despite both are aiming at BP modelling, the methods used by business people and IT specialists are quite different. The former use informal, descriptive methods, with an intuitive semantics difficult to be translated to the formal representation needed in the IT world. This paper presents the main lines of an ontological framework for the representation of BP semantics: BPAL (Business Process Abstract Language.) It is primarily conceived to provide a formal semantics to BPMN, an informal BP modelling method that is emerging in the business world. The modelling categories of BPAL are based on well accepted business notions, such as activity, decision, role. We believe that it may be useful beyond BPMN, in more general business contexts. BPAL is an abstract language (no drawing symbols are provided) having a procedural semantics (allowing a translation to an executable form, BPEL), and a declarative semantics, to be processed by an inference engine.
