homelessness

having no home, now the subject of legislation in England and Wales and Scotland, and having a technical signification not always congruent with the ordinary meaning of the word. The thrust of the legislation is to focus upon accommodation, and homelessness is the lack of such accommodation. The risk of violence or abuse can render a person in a home, homeless. Local authorities have to provide accommodation for the homeless but not the intentionally homeless, a critical concept around which much of the reported litigation turns. Some homeless people are accorded a priority need in applying for council housing, such as pregnant women.

Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring Based on Switching Voltage Transients and Wavelet Transforms.
In this paper, we use a relative smoothness measure (RSM) detector which has an obvious characteristic at the starting point and endpoint to detect the transients. The other sliding rectangular window is used to calculate the output of the RSM-detector as follows:
In this article we fit mark-recapture models to long-term photographic identification data (1984 to 2010) to examine abundance trends, site fidelity, and demography for the AT1 and GOA transients in the coastal waters of Prince William Sound and the Kenai Fjords.
In contrast, standard transients arising from normal supernovae take at least a few weeks to reach their peak level of brightness.
We have carried out the transient analysis in the charge circuit of the capacitors of electric discharge installation, taking into account the change in the initial conditions of such transients (initial voltage on the capacitors and the initial current in the charging circuit).
The LT8672, an active rectifier controller with reverse input protection to -40 V, features a 3-V to 42-V input voltage, making it suitable for automotive applications that must regulate through cold-crank and stop-start scenarios with minimum input voltages as low as 3.0 V and load-dump transients up to 40 V.
Transient stability studies deals with the effects of large, sudden disturbances, such as the occurrence of the fault, the sudden outage of a line [6].Whenever a short circuit fault is smeared on a transmission line, a transient DC offset component, transient and power frequency component is generated on the line due to the voltage and current signal [5].The scrutiny of electric fault transients in a power system provides very important information regarding the load bearing capabilities of the system which are very much helpful in the scheme of different components of the generation and the protection system[5].
This adjustment factor was experimentally determined by analyzing engine data during transients. In [7], the author designed an experimental setup to account for various engine transients whereas authors in [8] utilized engine data collected over a World-Wide Harmonized Transient Cycle.
While previous studies have investigated the link between changes in skeletal muscle function and muscle mass [1,7,10-12,14,17-23], [Ca.sup.2+]homeostasis and signaling in different models of long-term diabetes mellitus [24-27], few have examined the impact of relatively acute elevated glucose on action potential- (AP-) induced [Ca.sup.2+] transients. Direct acute effects of hyperglycemia could have implications for the skeletal muscle myopathy seen in diabetes, especially in patients with poor glycemic control.
The equation allows taking into account the impact of transients processes on locomotive fuel consumption;
Spontaneous calcium transients and oscillations have been reported in a number of tissues of nonhuman origin [19].
