In contrast, several European nations have lost ground. The UK remains the second most-represented nation in the list, with 10 universities, even though two institutions – the University of Bristol and Durham University – have fallen out of the top 100. Seven of the 10 have slipped to lower positions.

Four of Germany’s six institutions and four of the Netherlands’ five representatives have also dropped down the list, while Denmark and Finland no longer feature among the top 100. They each had one institution in last year’s reputation ranking .

In many cases, these European universities achieved similar or higher scores than they did last year, but they did not improve as rapidly as institutions in Asia.

Paul Blackmore, professor of higher education at Antik Batik Woman Beaded Crepe Dress Baby Pink Size 40 Antik Batik 1bOZG
’s Policy Institute, said that Asia’s stronger performance is the result of a combination of “undoubted growth in university systems” and “of more being known [about them] among those giving a view”.

“We’ve had a highly Anglo-Saxon view of higher education for many years, and that can’t be sustained for much longer,” he said.

Joshua Mok Ka-Ho, vice-president and chair professor of comparative policy at Hong Kong’s Lingnan University, added that Asia’s performance reflects heavy higher education investments from many governments in the region as well as universities concentrating funding on strengthening their research capabilities and publishing in international journals.

“Such self-enhancing and advancing trends will continue, particularly when an increasing number of governments in Asia have recognised the importance of research, knowledge transfer, innovation and technology in transforming the economy and society,” he said.

are also available (coarse and fine grit), but are usually of inferior quality.

You will also need a stone fixer to repair any inconsistencies in the surface of your sharpening stones.

Carefully dry your stones after each use, and store them wrapped in a kitchen towel in a dry, grease-free environment. Oil can soak into the porous material, ruining its sharpening ability (and your chances of ever slicing your onions thin enough for that soup).

And finally, remember to FOOTWEAR Lowtops amp; sneakers IRIS amp; INK WNpkm2Y7r
on a steel every time you use it. While this process won't actually take any material off the blade, it will help keep the blade aligned, making slicing and dicing much easier.

When working with waterstones, it's essential to submerge them in water for at least 45 minutes before using. If the porous stones are not fully saturated, they will dry out during sharpening, causing the knife blade to catch, and giving your edge nicks and dings. Soak both your stones, and your stone fixer.

Place your stone on a towel set over a cutting board. Keep a container of water nearby to keep your stone constantly moistened during the sharpening process. The stone should be oriented with the short end parallel to the edge of the counter.

Begin with your lower-grit stone. Place the heel of your knife on the far edge of the stone, holding the blade gently but firmly with both hands at a 15- to 20-degree angle. Using even pressure, slowly drag the knife over the stone toward you down the length of the stone while simultaneously moving the knife such that the contact point moves toward the tip of the blade.

Be careful to maintain the 15 to 20 degree angle as you pull the knife across the stone. Pressure should be firm, but gentle. The blade should glide smoothly across the stone as you pull.

Each stroke should finish with the tip of the knife touching the bottom of the stone. Lift the knife, reset the heel at the top of the stone, and repeat.

As you repeat the process, a thin film of silty looking water should collect on top of the stone and on the blade. This abrasive liquid will gradually take material off the edge of your knife, sharpening it.

As you continue to repeat strokes on the first time, eventually a tiny burr will form on the other side of the blade. To check for it, place the blade on your thumb, and pull it backwards. If the burr has formed, it should catch slightly on your thumb (with really fine grit stones, say 2000 or above, you won't feel this). This may take up to 30 or 40 strokes, and is the indication that you should switch and start sharpening the other side.

The growing proportion of inventors that were choosing to sell off the rights to their patents suggests that patentees were increasingly focusing their attention and resources on the pursuit of inventive activity. Indeed, the data we have on patenting over careers, presented in Table The Dolly Suede Pumps Black Charlotte Olympia haiLF
, are quite consistent with the view that there was a dramatic increase in specialization at invention over the course of the nineteenth century. The early 1800s were a relatively democratic era of invention, when the typical inventor filed only one or two patents over his lifetime, and when efforts at technological creativity were only one aspect of an individual’s work, if not a sideline altogether. Although such part-time inventors continued to be significant contributors to patenting, their share fell sharply between the 1830s and 1870s, from over 70% to less than 40%. Conversely, the share of patents accounted for by patentees with 10 or more career patents rose from less than 5% to more than 20%. There may have been other contributors to the sharp change in the distribution of patents across patentees, but this evidence that a major increase in the degree of specialization occurred as early as the middle third of the nineteenth century—before the emergence of research laboratories housed in large-scale enterprises—is important ( 7 , Cyberrunner Unisex Adults LowTop Sneakers nat2 KP5aMH

View this table:

Distribution of patents by patentee commitment to patenting, 1790–1911

The idea that the increase in specialization at invention was facilitated, if not promoted, by an enhanced ability to trade technological information is certainly consistent with the observation that transfers in patent rights became extensive during the period in which the substantial increase in specialization occurred. To establish more directly whether the two developments are related, Table Ava ballerina shoes Red The Row 4R8dCOvMO4
provides comparisons of the extent of long-term commitment to invention between patentees who assigned their patent rights away to companies and patentees who did not. The logic would suggest that patentees who traded the rights to their inventions should have demonstrably greater long-term commitments to inventive activity over their career than those who did not do so. We test this implication by comparing the two groups in our “B” sample by their average number of “career” patents and the average length of the “career” in invention over all patents and over all patentees (weighted and unweighted averages). What stands out is that patentees who assigned their patent rights away to companies registered many more patents over their careers, and also had longer careers, than those who retained the rights to their patents through the date of issue. Industrial sector and the degree of urbanization of the patentee’s county of residence are controlled for in Table 5 , but the results are robust to a general multivariate analysis accounting for region and time period as well.
