The present paper focuses on effectiveness of the Higher Education System in the research domain of Sri Lanka as a unit of analysis. The aim of this research paper is to explain and elaborate the system of Higher Education prevailed in the Island since its inception and how the colonial objectives have transformed to social demands and economic changes prevailed in Sri Lanka and how far Sri Lanka has succeeded to modernize the Higher Education policy with the aim of enhancing the efficiency of the system to fit into the globalized trend. Finally the research will serve as a base for the policy makers for possible changes at the appropriate stages to be addressed or adopted.
Growers need to be creative in identifying techniques to monitor and understand planting material variation within and between blocks. Being creative does not necessarily mean being complicated. The Block Efficiency Indicator (BEI) is a simple, reliable and repeatable concept that fills a management gap allowing growers to identify which of five variables are influencing block-planting material efficiency, positively or negatively. BEI is a percentage calculation compiled by dividing actual values by theoretical values for planting density, yield, bunch weight, frond production, and block sex ratio. When actual values equal theoretical values, BEI is 100 and block-planting material is achieving its expected commercial potential. A reduction in average frond rate from 17 to 15 fronds/yr for example produces a BEI of 77.9, while a reduction in block sex ratio from 0.7 to 0.6 produces a BEI of 73.5, equivalent to a loss of 16 and 19 palms/ha respectively.

Shopping for wood furniture? Selecting high-quality wood chairs and benches can be baffling. There are many different styles, materials, and construction techniques from which you can select. To make a good selection, obtain as much information as possible. These questions should help you make a good decision. WHAT’S ON THE MARKET? WHAT’S QUALITY CONSTRUCTION? WHAT’S A QUALITY FINISH? WHAT’S ON THE LABEL? WHAT’S ON THE WARRANTY? WHAT’S ON THE MARKET? Wood is one of the most popular materials used to make chairs and benches because of its rich appearance, durability, and ease of construction. Wood furniture can be divided into solid and veneer (see Figure 12.1, Wood Construction). Most chairs are made of solid wood. You may, however, find chair backs and aprons made out of veneer plywood. Plywood is used for strength and to eliminate warpage, splitting, expansion, and contraction. All woods can be divided into deciduous and coniferous. There is some relationship between the hardness of the wood and the type of tree the wood comes from. In most cases deciduous trees consist of harder wood than coniferous trees, but not always. Deciduous simply refers to all leaf bearing trees such as Figure 12.1. Wood Construction teak, walnut, oak, maple, mahogany, cherry, and birch. Coniferous refers to cone-bearing trees such as pine, fir, redwood, and cedar. Most highquality wooden furniture is made of deciduous trees. Generally, wood from coniferous trees are used for the less expensive furniture. However, some high-quality furniture is now being made out of coniferous trees such as pine. While furniture made out of pine may be high quality, it is still more subject to scratches and dents than harder woods.
The extent or stage of cancer at the time of diagnosis is a key factor that deﬁnes prognosis and is a critical element in deter mining appropriate treatment based on the experience and outcomes of groups of prior patients with similar stage. In addition, accurate staging is necessary to evaluate the results of treatments and clinical trials, to facilitate the exchange and comparison of information among treatment centers, and to serve as a basis for clinical and translational cancer research. At a national and international level, the agreement on classi ﬁcations of cancer cases provides a method of clearly convey ing clinical experience to others without ambiguity. Several cancer staging systems are used worldwide. Dif ferences among these systems stem from the needs and objectives of users in clinical medicine and in population surveillance. The most clinically useful staging system is the tumor node metastasis (TNM) system maintained collabor atively by the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) and the International Union for Cancer Control (UICC). The TNM system classiﬁes cancers by the size and extent of the primary tumor (T), involvement of regional lymph node (N), and the presence or absence of distant metasta ses (M), supplemented in recent years by carefully selected nonanatomic prognostic factors. There is a TNM staging algorithm for cancers of virtually every anatomic site and histology, with the primary exception in this manual being staging of pediatric cancers.
Brush-Clearing Head Evaluation Andy Trent, Project Leader he natural regeneration of some pine species after large wildland fires can produce extremely thick stands. These stands of lodgepole pine— and in some cases, ponderosa pine—can have more than 15,000 seedlings per acre. As the stands grow, they become extremely dense. Individual trees grow very slowly. The stands provide poor habitat for some wildlife, including large mammals such as elk, deer, and bears. In addition, the stands are susceptible to disease and insects. The stands will thin themselves naturally over time, but that process takes many years. on or near the ground. The trees must be severed below these limbs to kill the tree. Chain saws are unsuitable, because the saw may strike rocks or the ground. Hand pruners can be used, but using them is very labor intensive and usually cost prohibitive. Brushclearing saws (figure 1) with circular saw blades are usually the most efficient method, but the blade must be resharpened repeatedly or replaced if it strikes a rock or the ground. Table 1 describes the advantages and disadvantages of three methods for thinning small-diameter stands.
