Ruan's model, however, which she calls adaptive, aims to accurately localize tumors in real-time by imaging smarter, rather than more frequently.
While modernizing the three-story building, the Meekers plan to also retain its historic flavor, which they call adaptive reuse.
It writes: "The idea of the big society is at its weakest when it is presented as a partisan technical solution to acute socio-economic problems, and at its strongest when viewed as a non-partisan long-term adaptive challenge to enrich our social and human capital."
Whether there is telic agency involved in adaptive evolution or just ruthless selection (not in evidence in many cases, all the way down to the genes themselves), there are reasons why birds have wings and mammals have hair and whales have subcutaneous fat … these things have function for the organism – they work.
Start with a replicating system having built-in adaptive mechanisms and guess what happens next?
For this purpose, control and regulating technology had to be further developed into self-regulating biomechatronic systems, which could also play a future role in adaptive production.
In some sense, planning to be flexible and adaptive is the most difficult type of planning that can be done.
Delbanco identifies a quality he calls "adaptive energy" in the old artists who continue to work, undaunted, to the last possible moment.
The Clinic is sponsored by of the Department of Veterans Affairs and Disabled American Veterans (DAV) to "promote rehabilitation by instructing veterans with disabilities in adaptive Alpine and Nordic skiing, and introducing them to a number of other adaptive recreational activities and sports."
The ‘communication’ will continue to be one-way, Obama to America, as in adaptive propaganda.
Detailed regional and local analyses of particular types of fisheries (e.g., commercial, recreational, or domestic) and of specific arctic freshwater and anadromous fisheries are required to more fully elucidate all impacts, understand their consequences for local fisheries, and stimulate the development of appropriate short - and long-term adaptive responses by fishery managers and related constituents of the fishery infrastructure.
Studying European blackbirds (Turdus merula), Jesko Partecke and Eberhard Gwinner (Max Planck Institute for Ornithology) discovered certain adaptive traits, that in the long run, could lead to more offspring.
But where is the direct supportive evidence for the assumption that complexity is rooted in adaptive processes?
Natural selection as the process of accumulating genetic information in adaptive evolution.
Kimura, M. (1961) "Natural selection as the process of accumulation of genetic information in adaptive evolution."
It was demonstrated that the rate of accumulation of genetic information in adaptive evolution is directly proportional to to the substitutional load, i.e., the decrease of Darwininian fitness brought about by substituting for one gene its allelic form which is more fitted to a new environment.
Water resource and Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) can contribute to improving the long-term adaptive capacity of vulnerable communities .
A hip replacement with a cemented or cementless femoral stem produces an effect on the bone called adaptive remodelling, attributable to mechanical and biological factors.
Rather, this strain seemed to effectively stimulate a long-term adaptive immune response as demonstrated by the generation of high F1 antibody titers.
For each system of the body, there are both short-term adaptive actions (allostasis) that are protective and long-term effects that can be damaging (allostatic load).
