Financial Advisory Abney Associates: Annuities and retirement planning

Annuities come in many different forms. There are immediate and deferred annuities, with both fixed and variable rates. However, whatever the type of annuity, all can be classified as either qualified or nonqualified annuities. And the distinction is easy.

Flexible Pipe Stress and Fatigue Analysis - DiVA

Henan Li Marine Technology Submission date: June 2012 Supervisor: Svein Sævik, IMT Norwegian University of Science and Technology Department of Marine Technology THESIS WORK SPRING 2012 for Stud. tech. Henan Li Flexible Pipe Stress and Fatigue Analysis Spennings- og utmatnings-analyse av fleksible stigerø r The flexible riser represents a vital part of many oil and gas production systems. During operation of such risers, several failure incidents may take place e.g. caused by fatigue and corrosion. In limit cases where inspections indicate damage, the decision making with regard to continue operation or replacing the riser may have large economic and environmental consequences. Hence, the decision must be based on accurate models to predict the residual strength of the pipe. In most applications, one or several steel layers are used to carry the hoop stress resulting from internal pressure. This is further combined with two layers of cross-wound armour tendons (typically 40-60 tendons in one layer installed with an angle of 35o with the pipe’s length axis) acting as the steel tensile armour to resist the tension and end cap wall force resulting from pressure. The riser fatigue performance may in many cases be governed by the dynamic stresses in the tensile armour. The existing lifetime models for such structures is primarily based on inherent assumptions with respect to the slip properties of the tensile armour. This thesis work focus on establishing a FEM based model for analysis of the tensile armour, so as to analyse the stress and slip behaviour when exposed to different load conditions. The thesis work is to be based on the project work performed and shall include the following steps: 1) Literature study, including flexible pipe technology, failure modes and design criteria, analytical methods for stress analysis of flexible pipes,...

Healing Gardens: Creating Places for Restoration, Meditation, and Sanctuary What are the defining characteristics that make a healing garden? Keywords: healing gardens, restoration gardens, sanctuary gardens A thesis Prepared by Annalisa Gartman Vapaa Committee Chair: Dr. Margaret Bryant Committee Member: Brian Katen Committee Member: Bill Mills Defense Date: April 29, 2002 Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University College of Architecture and Urban Studies Master’s of Landscape Architecture Abstract The “healing garden” is an evolving concept that is gaining popularity today. What is a healing garden? Why is one garden called a healing garden and not another? How is a healing garden defined? In what way are gardens healing? This thesis describes the ways in which healing gardens are beneficial in healthcare and residential settings. A set of guidelines for the design of healing gardens is created as a result of research findings as well as three design projects that are illustrated in the document.

Operating instructions HYUNDAI ACCENT - mypdfmanuals.com

Inner strength Accent's solid feel starts with the use of a safe, rigid body shell Your safety is our mission Hyundai engineers have raised standards in their quest to protect everyone in the event of a crash and that includes any pedestrians unfortunate enough to be caught in the incident. For a start, the safety blueprint for Accent requires impeccable handling, which is now accompanied by larger anti-lock disc brakes. The reinforced body shell is complemented by solid steel side impact beams, six air bags and seat belts equipped with pre-tensioners. Scientifically monitored tests in our high technology laboratories confirm computer calculations that the Accent exceeds the toughest crash protection legislation from around the world. Cushioning the impact Occupants have the benefit of dual front air bags, another on the side of each front seat, and roof-mounted bags that form protective curtains along each side of the interior. Safety first Sure handling and anti-lock brakes help to keep the Accent on-line. 1.6-litre DOHC CVVT petrol Variable valve timing and extra displacement produce 82.4kW (112 PS) 1.4-litre DOHC petrol A small displacement increase takes power output to 69. 9kW (97 PS) 1.5-litre CRDi turbodiesel Common rail fuel injection helps to produce top-class 81kW (110 PS) The best of everything Accent's trio of engines have it all: economy, power, refinement and durability Stop and go Front brake disc diameters are bigger for more stopping power. Well-proven MacPherson strut-type front suspension gives excellent on-road performance. Accent revives the time when driving was fun Driving today can sometimes be a chore, but Hyundai does not believe that means cars should be dull. Quite the contrary. Our aim is to put the sparkle of enjoyment back into driving. Accent is an example of what we mean. The stiffness and strength of the new platform and body shell make the car solid and secure. Our engineers paid particular attention to reducing what they know as NVH noise, vibration and harshness. The steering is light and precise and the anti-lock disc brakes are world-class.

Imaging and Diagnosis in Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency

Imaging and Diagnosis in Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency Nii-Kabu Kabutey1, Ducksoo Kim1, Sandy McDonald2, Angela Lagace2, Michael Stehling1, Erica Menegatti3, Paolo Zamboni3 1Boston Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency University Medical Center, Dept. of Radiology Boston, MA. 2Barrie Vascular Imaging, Barrie, ON. 3University of Ferrara, Vascular Diseases Center, Ferrara, It Ultrasound: Reflux in the Internal Jugular and Vertebral Veins Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) is characterized by an impediment to the major extracranial venous outflow pathways, resulting in venous reflux and loss of postural regulation of cerebral venous outflow. The dynamic nature of extracranial cerebrospinal venous drainage due to the influence of respiratory mechanics and postural positioning, produce particularly difficult imaging challenges. In addition, the venous system is often asymmetric and more variable than arterial anatomy. The bony structure of the cranium and thoracic vault increase the difficulty of assessing the hemodynamic variability of the venous system with doppler ultrasound imaging alone. In 1935, Dr. Tracy Putman of Boston City Hospital first proposed a relationship between venous obstruction and the formation of cerebral sclerotic plaques seen in multiple sclerosis (MS).1 A strong association has been noted between CCSVI and multiple sclerosis (MS) a debilitating inflammatory condition of the central nervous system characterized by immune cell migration across the blood brain barrier and subsequent nerve sheath demyelination2. Multiple imaging modalites are currently being studied to diagnosis CCSVI and further delineate the relationship between CCSVI and multiple sclerosis.

But before you do so, please check the minimum server requirements: ● ● ● ● ● An install of WordPress 3.0 or greater PHP 5.2.4 or greater MySQL 5.0 or greater The mod_rewrite Apache module (for permalinks) fsockopen support (for payment gateway IPN access) If these criteria are not met you will no doubt run into issues with WooCommerce. Installation There are two WooCommerce installation options; Automatic or Manual. Automatic installation Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t even need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of WooCommerce log in to your WordPress admin panel, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New. In the search field type “WooCommerce” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found the plugin you can view details about it such as the the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking Install Now. After clicking that link you will be asked if you’re sure you want to install the plugin. Click yes and WordPress will automatically complete the installation. It’s possible at this stage that you will be taken to a page requesting the FTP details of your webserver. This will be the case if you’ve not installed a plugin on this particular installation of WordPress before. If so, simply fill in your details to complete the installation.
