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.

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.
Quality aspects become increasingly important when business process modeling is used in a large-scale enterprise setting. In order to facilitate a storage without redundancy and an efﬁcient retrieval of relevant process models in model databases it is required to develop a theoretical understanding of how a degree of behavioral similarity can be deﬁned. In this paper we address this challenge in a novel way. We use causal footprints as an abstract representation of the behavior captured by a process model, since they allow us to compare models deﬁned in both formal modeling languages like Petri nets and informal ones like EPCs. Based on the causal footprint derived from two models we calculate their similarity based on the established vector space model from information retrieval. We validate this concept with an experiment using the SAP Reference Model and an implementation in the ProM framework. Keywords: Business Process Modeling, Event-driven Process Chains, Similarity, Equivalence.
