Details of Electrical and Electronic Apparatus with Applications in the Maintenance and Operation of Aircraft, Missiles and Space Vehicles. The possibility of collisions between gliders and high‐speed aircraft, particularly in areas under strict radar control, is causing increasing concern to air‐traffic controllers. The Marconi Company, on behalf of the Ministry of Aviation, are currently carrying out a series of experiments aimed at reducing this danger, which is due to the inability of radar to detect reliably the very light construction of a glider.
Summarizes legislation which determines specific temperature requirements for refrigerated foods in the United Kingdom pre – and post‐1990. Before 1990 there were relatively few specific national controls, although controls existed for certain animal‐based products such as meat and meat products destined for intra‐Community trade. Post‐1990 came the Food Safety Act 1990 and Food Hygiene (Amendment) Regulations 1990, which have had most effect on the chill chain from production through to retail sale, and in the catering sector. Temperature controls have been strengthened by monitoring and systems of record‐keeping. The other source of legislation has been through the implementation of single European market measures, many of which will come into force on 1 January 1993.

This paper aims to systematically review the existing studies on the relationship of Sharī'ah governance (SG), as represented by the Sharī'ah supervisory board (SSB), with firm performance of Islamic banks (IBs), to suggest opportunities for future research in this field.
By adopting a systematic literature review, 21 empirical and theoretical papers published in Scopus concerning the relationship between SSB and performance of IBs were selected for review and analysis.
In light of the existing research studies' limitations, this paper suggests that the effect of SSB on IBs' performance still requires more empirical analyses using alternative analytical methods, alternative measures, and different periods (during crisis and non-crisis). Besides that, these studies should take into account the differences across jurisdictions in their SG models, the degree of agencies' intervention in SG practices, the control over cross-memberships of scholars, and the differences across IBs in the position of SSB in the organization structure.
The analysis undertaken in this paper would address the literature gaps on the effect of SSB on IBs' performance as this study serves as a guide for the researchers, academicians, and interested researchers from Islamic international autonomous non-for-profit organizations, e.g. AAOIFI and IFSB in research related to this important area. Importantly, the findings of this study would support regulators and related authorities across jurisdictions with suggestions on improving the current SG practices.
This paper presents a critical review of the existing research on SSB and IB performance and suggests new variables, measurements, analytical methods, and new issues for researchers in this area. Thus, it identifies the literature gap that still needs further empirical investigation and a suitable way to close it.

Since their creation through the Industrial Training Act 1964 to hear appeals against levies, the jurisdiction of industrial tribunals has grown considerably. One aspect of this jurisdiction, unfair dismissal, is examined here. Basic principles related to the law of unfair dismissal are examined. The practice and procedure of an industrial tribunal solely in connection with unfair dismissal cases are examined in greater detail. A case study is used to illustrate the important aspects of procedure. Appendices give relevant forms and extracts from the appropriate Code of Practice.

This annotated listing of 125 United States Government bibliographies is the first annual supplement to BIBLIOGRAPHY OF UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT BIBLIOGRAPHIES 1968–1973 (Pierian Press). Most publications included bear a 1974 imprint, though there are some with earlier imprints which are not included in the 1968–1973 BIBLIOGRAPHY.
There is a danger of corrosion taking place, even in the absence of what are normally called corrosive liquids, when metals are either unplated or inadequately plated. It is not enough to know that a sufficient thickness of metal has been applied. It must be free from pores, cracks, etc., and it is important that the adhesion between the base metal and the plating is of a high order over the whole surface. Other qualities such as appearance and hardness are also of importance in some applications and must not be forgotten. This article outlines methods of testing for plating quality, including such aspects as adhesion, porosity, hardness and lustre.
Allied Colloids have introduced a vinyl‐based resin, Alcolec 532, for the formulation of flexographic printing inks and paper lacquers. It is offered in bead form, which assists in maintaining a high degree of purity during manufacture and facilitates handling.
NO one will argue with the statement that surface finishing and edge treatment operations play an important role in the production of aerospace components.
Oleochemicals can be made from the components of renewable animal, marine and vegetable oils and fats. This oleochemical group of products is a large one, comprising fatty acids, glycerol and numerous derivatives of these including fatty alcohols, fatty esters, and nitrogen‐, phosphorus‐and sulphur‐containing materials. Polyoxyalkylated end products from the above, from heavy metal and water‐soluble soaps, epoxidised chemicals, polymer components, and the quarternary ammonium compounds are found. The oleochemicals of interest to the lubricants manufacturer are those which function in some specific manner. Anti‐corrosive, anti‐oxidant, anti‐squawk, anti‐stick, anti‐sludge, anti‐wear detergent, dispersant and oiliness agents, pour point depressants and viscosity modifying materials, are examples.
