Although most of the wives agreed that codependency involves caretaking behavior and exists by virtue of their association with an… (More)
Large backup and restore systems may have a petabyte or more data in their repository. Such systems are often compressed by means of deduplication techniques , that partition the input text into chunks and store recurring chunks only once. One of the approaches is to use hashing methods to store fingerprints for each data chunk, detecting identical chunks… (More)
Personal effects drinkers seem more likely than nonpersonal effects drinkers to benefit from an alcoholism treatment program emphasizing abstinence and self-actualization.
