Part II focuses on the analysis of legal translation from a practical perspective among different jurisdictions such as China, the EU and Japan, offering multiple and pluralistic viewpoints. This book presents a collection of studies in legal translation which not only provide the latest international research findings among academics and practitioners, but also furnish us with a new approach to, and new insights into, the phenomena and nature of legal translation and legal transfer.

Hlavním cílem publikace je poskytnout čtenářům nejen teoreticky podložený návod, jak postupovat při převádění právních informací z češtiny do angličtiny, ale také praktické ukázky přístupu k překládání nového občanského zákoníku (NOZ). Publikace je rozdělena do tří kapitol. První kapitola podrobně analyzuje proces právního překladu, formuluje základní pravidla pro překládání právních textů a vymezuje rozsah právnělingvistických znalostí a překladatelských dovedností. Druhá kapitola se věnuje překládání právních předpisů, stanovuje právnělingvistická východiska pro překlad českých zákonů do angličtiny, porovnává lingvistický přístup k tvorbě zákonů v České republice a některých anglicky mluvících zemích. Zahrnuje stručnou charakteristiku jazyka NOZ a analýzu různých variet právnické angličtiny, stejně jako některých gramatických jevů, jež jsou pro překlad (nejen) občanského zákoníku podstatné. Třetí kapitola v pěti oddílech ukazuje praktický přístup k překládání občanského zákoníku do angličtiny. První oddíl se věnuje legislativně technickým prvkům celého zákoníku a jeho systematice; další čtyři oddíly jsou vymezeny podle částí NOZ – obecná část, rodinné právo, absolutní majetková práva a relativní majetková práva. V každém oddíle jsou vybrána ustanovení z pohledu překladu obtížnější buď kvůli volbě českých jazykových prostředků, nebo pro nejednoznačnost českého textu, jež může vést k různým interpretacím.

If you'd love to know how to simply and effectively modify the electronic systems in your car, this book is for you. In Section 1 you'll find a step-by-step introduction to the world of car electronics. The section starts with very simple circuits but as the pages progress, you'll be introduced to volts, ohms and amps, be shown how to use a multimeter, meet analog and digital signals - and a whole lot more. And at each of these stages, there are real-world car modifications used as examples. Section 2 covers specific modifications to cars. These are wide-ranging - everything from fitting and tuning a commercial engine management signal interceptor, to adding new cabin lights, to cheaply wiring a tow-bar on a CAN bus car, to modifying electric power steering and electronic stability control. Even, the electronic modification of regen braking on a Toyota Prius! Along the way you'll find a host of interesting snippets covering things as diverse as stopping turbo boost cuts, a prebuilt module that will improve your fuel economy, upgrading to LED interior lighting, what's inside poor quality relays - and lots more. The modifications that are down-to-earth, practical, cheap and achievable - this a book that should be on every car modifier's shelf.

At last – a book for those who like to modify the aerodynamics of their road cars!In this book author Julian Edgar explores a host of practical and low-cost techniques that you can do yourself without spending a lot of money or needing special facilities. Section 1 introduces aerodynamic drag and lift. The language is simple and straightforward – but still includes concepts such as drag co-efficients, lift co-efficients and the different types of drag that affect road cars. Section 2 is devoted to aerodynamic testing – directly measuring aerodynamic pressures, and seeing airflow patterns by the use of on-road wool-tuft testing. Section 3, the largest part in the book, covers aerodynamic modification. Fitting vortex generators, testing different undertrays, reducing drag, using turning vanes in intercooler ducting – all are covered in detail. In addition, techniques are described for reducing wind noise, building an effective engine intake that breathes high-pressure cold air, siting bonnet vents in the correct location, and testing airflow through intercoolers. With nearly 300 full-colour photos and diagrams, this book is practical and down to earth – and uses techniques able to be carried out on the road.

In this book, Dittfurth uses various means to explain the issues of jurisdiction and procedure that arise in federal courts. The book describes the pertinent rules of as they operate in the processing of a case, and also features hypotheticals, with answers, to enhance the reader's understanding of the role played by a particular rule. In the broad sense, procedure is best understood in relation to the substance of litigation — that is, to the causes of action, remedies, and defenses that are the heart of a lawsuit. These substantive elements are used to make more understandable the processes used in adjudication.Civil procedure is also useful as an introduction to the information and and analytical skills prized in law school. This book gives beginning law students clear explanations of the various legal concepts they must master. An extensive glossary of legal terms is included that explains rather than merely defines those concepts.The most confusing part of a law school initiation comes from the requirement that one learn how law is created and by and used in courts. A student's undergraduate education prepares him or her for simple research to find so-called ""black-letter law."" But a different skill — one that lawyers call legal reasoning, or, more precisely, legal advocacy — is required before a student understands how an advocate can distinguish an unfavorable legal authority and support the application of a more favorable one.

Bringing together the viewpoints of leading experts in taxonomy, ecology and biogeography of different taxa, this book synthesises discussion surrounding the so-called 'everything is everywhere' hypothesis. It addresses the processes that generate spatial patterns of diversity and biogeography in organisms that can potentially be cosmopolitan. The contributors discuss questions such as: are microorganisms (e.g. prokaryotes, protists, algae, yeast and microscopic fungi, plants and animals) really cosmopolitan in their distribution? What are the biological properties that allow such potential distribution? Are there processes that would limit their distribution? Are microorganisms intrinsically different from macroscopic ones? What can microorganisms tell us about the generalities of biogeography? Can they be used for experimental biogeography? Written for graduate students and academic researchers, the book promotes a more complete understanding of the spatial patterns and the general processes in biogeography.

Genetic disorders have emerged as a prominent cause of morbidity and mor tality among infants and adults. As many as 10% to 20% of hospital admis sions and at least 10% of the mortality in this age group are due to inherited diseases. There are at least two factors that have brought genetic disorders into the forefront of pediatrics. One is a great reduction in childhood mortality due to infections and nutritional deficiency states, and the other is the rapid progress made in the identification of genetic defects. Amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling, and recombinant DNA technology have already had a tremendous impact on the practice of medicine. This is why the first two chapters of this volume are dedicated to general principles of molecular genetics and to a description of the techniques used to diagnose genetic disorders at the DNA level. The relevance of this new area of science to the study of inherited renal diseases is reflected in the large body of knowledge that has been generated regarding the association between various glomerular nephritides and genetic markers such as the HLA system, and even more impressively in the direct or indirect identification of abnormal genes or gene products in Alport's syn drome, autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, and Lowe's syndrome. These discoveries figure prominently in the pages of this book. Yet, the progress we have made has barely scratched the surface of the problem.
