TL;DR: In this paper , the authors present a comprehensive assessment of our understanding of global warming of 1.5°C, future climate change, potential impacts and associated risks, emission pathways, and system transitions consistent with 1.0°C global warming, and strengthening the global response to climate change in the context of sustainable development and efforts to eradicate poverty.
Abstract: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the leading international body for assessing the science related to climate change. It provides regular assessments of the scientific basis of climate change, its impacts and future risks, and options for adaptation and mitigation. This IPCC Special Report is a comprehensive assessment of our understanding of global warming of 1.5°C, future climate change, potential impacts and associated risks, emission pathways, and system transitions consistent with 1.5°C global warming, and strengthening the global response to climate change in the context of sustainable development and efforts to eradicate poverty. It serves policymakers, decision makers, stakeholders and all interested parties with unbiased, up-to-date, policy-relevant information. This title is also available as Open Access on Cambridge Core.

TL;DR: The authors employed response surface regressions based on simulation experments to calculate asymptotic distribution functions for the likelihood ratio tests for cointegration proposed by Johansen and provided tables of critical values that are very much more accurate than those available previously.
Abstract: This paper employs response surface regressions based on simulation experments to calculate asymptotic distribution functions for the likelihood ratio tests for cointegration proposed by Johansen The paper provides tables of critical values that are very much more accurate than those available previously However the principal contributions of the paper are a set of data les that contain estimated asymptotic quantiles obtained from response surface estimation and a computer program for utilizing them This program which is freely available via the Internet can easily be used to calculate asymptotic critical values and P values Graphs of some of the tabulated distribution functions are also provided An empirical example motivated by the European Economic and Monetary Union proposed in the Maastricht Treaty suggests that not all the countries of the European Union may qualify initially for participation in the EMU.

TL;DR: In this article, a flow model is presented by which to view the "life history" or processes of systemic context of any material element, and different refuse disposal patterns are examined as they affect artifact location and association.
Abstract: The cultural aspect of the processes responsible for forming the archaeological record is argued to be an underdeveloped branch of archaeological theory. A flow model is presented by which to view the "life history" or processes of systemic context of any material element. This model accounts for the production of a substantial portion of the archaeological record. The basic processes of this model are: procurement, manufacture, use, maintenance, and discard. Refuse labels the state of an element in archaeological context. The spatial implications of the model suggest a largely untapped source of behavioral information. Differential refuse disposal patterns are examined as they affect artifact location and association. The meaning of element relative frequencies in refuse is discussed.

TL;DR: In this paper, a five component typology is developed comprised of magnitude of consequences, form of threat, probability of consequences and location in time and physical or psychological social proximity for extreme contexts, and the unique influences these components have on leadership processes in extreme contexts examining the relevance of organization types such as critical action and high reliability organizations.
Abstract: In this review, we develop a framework to guide future research and to examine the execution of leadership in extreme contexts. We start by defining and distinguishing extreme contexts from crisis and other contexts. A five component typology is developed comprised of magnitude of consequences, form of threat, probability of consequences, location in time and physical or psychological–social proximity. We discuss the unique influences these components have on leadership processes in extreme contexts examining the relevance of organization types such as critical action and high reliability organizations. Further, we present a set of factors that may attenuate or intensify the dimensions comprising an extreme context, thus influencing either a team or organization's ability for adaptive leadership response. Ultimately this framework seeks to develop a richer understanding of extreme contexts to advance the future development of contextualized theories of leadership for extreme contexts.

TL;DR: The Mobile Computing in a Fieldwork Environment (MCFE) project aims to develop context-aware tools for hand-held computers that will support the authoring, presentation and management of field notes.
Abstract: The Mobile Computing in a Fieldwork Environment (MCFE) project aims to develop context-aware tools for hand-held computers that will support the authoring, presentation and management of field notes. The project deliverables will be designed to support student fieldwork exercises and our initial targets are fieldwork training in archaeology and the environmental sciences. Despite this specialised orientation, we anticipate that many features of these tools will prove to be equally well suited to use in research data collection in these and other disciplines.
