ABOUT THE PROJECT. Coping with breast cancer more and more becomes a major socio-economic challenge not least due to the constantly increasing incidence of breast cancer in the developing world. There is a growing need for novel strategies to improve our understanding about resilience and capacity to predict resilience of women against the variety of stressful experiences and practical challenges related to breast cancer. This is a necessary step toward efficient recovery through personalized interventions: we need to know who is in need of support and what kind of support. BOUNCE will bring together modelling, medical, and social sciences experts to advance current knowledge on the dynamic nature of resilience as it relates to efficient recovery from breast cancer. BOUNCE will take into consideration clinical, cancer-related biological, lifestyle, and psychosocial parameters in order to predict individual resilience trajectories throughout the cancer continuum and eventually increase resilience in breast cancer survivors and help them remain/return in the workforce and enjoy a better quality of life. BOUNCE will deploy a prospective multi-centre pilot at four major oncology centres (in Italy, Finland, Israel and Portugal), where a total of 660 women will be recruited in order to build tools that help increase patients’ capacity to BOUNCE back during the highly stressful treatment and recovery period following diagnosis of breast cancer. The final output of the project consists of a clinically operational algorithm as well as tools and services assessing individualized risk. The overreaching goal of BOUNCE is to incorporate elements of a dynamic, predictive model of patient outcomes in building a functional system that could be used in routine clinical practice to provide physicians and other health professionals with concrete, personalized recommendations.
ABOUT THE PROJECT.

ABOUT THE PROJECT. This project is aimed at engaging the center’s patrons and visitors. The selected artist or team is required to perform at least 8 hours of community engagement with visitors to the center and West Flamingo community members. The Artwork should be created using mosaic tile or ceramic applications suitable for outdoor display and be applied directly on to the surface. While traditional mosaics are often made from marble, stone, and glass, the artist or team will also use recycled materials such as broken ceramics, dishware, personal objects etc. The total budget for this project is $10,000, which will include all necessary materials/supplies, labor, and surface preparation.
ABOUT THE PROJECT. The project involves a vertically integrated coking coal business with an approximately 99.6 million ton reserve base of coal that is expected to produce 1.2 million tons of raw coal annually. The mine is situated in Inner Mongolia, China. A sino-foreign joint venture (“JVC”) is being formed to own, construct and operate the underground coking coal mine, beneficiation plant and coking coal plant. The JVC will operate a 1.5 million ton beneficiation plant to process the raw coal into high-grade coking coal and secondarily, into thermal coal. Coking coal will be used in the JVC’s own 0.8 million ton per annum coking coal plant to produce coke and other commercially valuable by-products. The total capital expenditure for construction of the underground mine, beneficiation and coking coal plants is estimated to be approximately US$60 million. In terms of timeframe, the underground mine is expected to take 15 months to complete, the beneficiation plant 8 months, and the coking coal plant 18 months; all of these timetables occurring in parallel. During construction period, trial production of raw coal is expected to begin approximately 6 months after the day ground is broken. It is estimated that about 500 thousand tons of raw coal would be produced and salable during the initial production period. This transaction marks XXXX’s intention towards the coking coal business and GEM's second direct investment in China and its first in Inner Mongolia. XXX's previous exposure to China had been achieved as a passive LP in the CICC/Xxxxxx Xxxxxxx Fund vintage 1999. Earlier this year, a GEM subsidiary undertook a control investment in Ansen Investment Holdings, a Hong Kong and Dongguan, PRC-based consumer electronics ODM enterprise. In addition, GEM is raising a US$1 billion private equity fund jointly with The China International Trust & Investment Company (“CITIC”) (xxx.xxxxx.xxx), the CITIC/GEM Fund, that will focus on natural resources in China, Southeast Asia and Africa. This transaction is not being undertaken by the CITIC/GEM fund. ~End~
ABOUT THE PROJECT. Now, in a rapidly changing world, issue of heritage protection and use is one of the most important problems of modern countries and societies. Cultural heritage represents big potential for economic growth, generating value and thereby directly benefiting citizens. Finding better balance between preservation of cultural heritage and sustainable socio- economic development of regions is necessary. Therefore there is need for development of teaching programme enabling educating specialists able to apply modern, attractive forms of re-use, management and protection of heritage, while preserving its historical value.

BOUNCE will deliver a unified clinical model of modifiable factors associated with optimal disease outcomes and will deploy a prospective multi-centre clinical pilot at four major oncology centres (in Italy, Finland, Israel and Portugal), where a total of 660 women will be recruited in order to assess its clinical validity against crucial patient outcomes (illness progression, wellbeing, and functionality). The advanced computational tools to be employed will validate indices of patients’ capacity to bounce back during the highly stressful treatment and recovery period following diagnosis of breast cancer. The overreaching goal of BOUNCE is to incorporate elements of a dynamic, predictive model of patient outcomes in building a decision-support system used in routine clinical practice to provide physicians and other health professionals with concrete, personalized recommendations regarding optimal psychosocial support strategies.

ABOUT THE PROJECT. Statement of the problem Del Norte County, California, is known for its impressive natural and cultural resources, yet there has been little effort given to planning or other initiatives to protect and preserve these important assets in the face of disaster. The region faces numerous hazards, including wildfire, drought, earthquake, tsunami, and severe storm; increasingly, climate change is intensifying the threat of several of these. Two Wild and Scenic Rivers (the Klamath and the Xxxxx), a UNESCO World Heritage site (Redwood National and State Parks), and multiple indigenous traditional knowledge and heritage collections are among the values at risk. The Natural and Cultural Resource Protection and Preservation Program (NCRP3) Project Initiative seeks to mitigate these risks by developing local capacity.
