You have three major options for spending your time in port: taking a cruise ship organized shore excursion, taking an independent organized shore excursion or going off to explore completely on your own. (Of course, if the port doesn't interest you, you can always stay on the ship if you choose - and some passengers do take advantage of that opportunity to schedule leisurely spa appointments or simply relax on deck.) We'll take a look at the pluses and minuses of each option. Keep in mind that whichever option you choose for one port, you can always choose a different option for the next port; for instance, you might choose a cruise line organized flightseeing trip in Ketchikan, book an independent whale-watching tour in Juneau and then explore Skagway by yourself. Finally, you may well have time to take a shore excursion (or even two) and still have time to explore the port on your own a bit, if your excursion isn't of the all-day variety.
</p><p>Shore excursions purchased through your cruise line can be enormously convenient. You sign up a few days (or weeks, if you go online before your cruise) in advance, you pay through your shipboard account, you board your transportation soon after leaving the ship, and you are guided or escorted to - and usually during - your destination or activity. </p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/615458-cruising-alaska-a-guide-to-the-ships-ports-of-call-7th-ed">See more</a>

Therefore, any algorithms for solving the satisfiability problem may be used to compute stable models of tight logic programs. Furthermore, it has been also observed that many important problems can be encoded into tight logic programs. However, it is still unclear whether we can give a better characterization on the tractability of tight logic programs although some obvious tractable subclass is easy to be recognized. In this paper, we investigate the computational complexity of propositional tight logic programs under stable model semantics. In particular, we provide explicit syntactic characterizations for various tractable subclasses of tight logic programs. Our approach is to transform the completions of tight logic programs to instances of the constraint satisfaction problem</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/781960-artificial-intelligence">See more</a>

<p>June 2009</p><p>conor mcpherson</p><p>Born in 1971, Conor McPherson was educated at University College</p><p>Dublin, studying English and philosophy. While at college he read the work of David Mamet, whose play Glengarry Glen Ross sparked his interest in playwriting. In 1992 he founded his own company, Fly</p><p>By Night Theatre, with fellow UCD theatre artists.</p><p>McPherson’s plays, many of which feature sequences of intersecting monologues, include This Lime Tree Bower (1995), The Weir</p><p>(1997), Dublin Carol (2000), Port Authority (2001), Come on Over</p><p>(2001), Shining City (2004) and The Seafarer (2006). He is also the author of several one-act monologues, including Rum and Vodka</p><p>(1992), The Good Thief (1994) and St Nicholas (1997). In 2009 he wrote and directed a stage adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier’s story</p><p>‘The Birds’. He has also made four films: I Went Down (1997), for which he wrote the screenplay, and Saltwater (2000), The Actors</p><p>(2003) and The Eclipse (2009), all three of which he wrote and directed.</p><p>McPherson’s best-known play, The Weir (1997), is set in an Ireland where new and old meanings collide, and where new electrification schemes and new roads begin to separate inhabitants from their past.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/597043-close-to-the-next-moment-interviews-from-a-changing-ireland">See more</a>
