Imagine that a fire breaks out at one or more vertices of a graph, and at each time interval spreads to all neighbouring vertices that have not been protected earlier on. This is the general setup for The Firefighter Problem , which has attracted considerable attention since being introduced in 1995. We survey the directions and results that have been(More)
The aim of this review is to present the current knowledge of the mechanisms underlying the vestibular compensation and demonstrating how the vestibular rehabilitation is conducted to help the recovery of balance function. Vestibular rehabilitation is based on improving the natural phenomenon called vestibular compensation that occurs after acute vestibular(More)
1 The key role of the individual in the venture start-up process is unquestioned. Yet, attempts to use individual-level variables to predict who will start a business have had limited success. The cognitive literature shows promise in this regard. However, most research strategies emerging from it rely on retrospective accounts from successful founders.(More)

The increasing interest in Rift Valley fever virus (RVFV) and its potential impact on naive animal populations deserve revisiting experimental reproduction of RVFV infection, particularly in those animal breeds for which no data about their susceptibility to RVFV infection have ever been recorded. In this study we show the susceptibility of 9-10 weeks old(More)
MANCOVA was used to test for differences in the work values of the Mature, Baby Boom, Generation X and Millennial generations.

Interviews with youth indicate that the unintended impact of high-stakes testing is more problematic than policy makers and educators may realize. In contrast to literacy policy's aims to help promote(More)
In this paper we study the parallelization of PCGLS, a basic iterative method which main idea is to organize the computation of conjugate gradient method with preconditioner applied to normal equations. Two important schemes are discussed. What is the best possible data distribution and which communication network topology is most suitable for solving least(More)
