Cache Memory, System Design, Functional Capabilities, Performance, Data Management, and Quickware Engineering and Design 11-85 (Circuit board)
Computer performance can be inexpensively enhanced through the addition of cache memory, a small amount of fast memory placed between the slower main memory and the processor. Important cache design parameters affecting both cost and performance include cache size, cache organization, and line size. The replacement algorithm and the main memory update algorithm are also important components of cache memory. One cache memory upgrade board, the Quickware Engineering and Design QED 11-85, is examined in detail.
A comprehensive study of treatment, storage and disposal of hazardous wastes (TSDFs) using census tract level data did not reveal any statistically important variations between the ethnic or racial composition of tracts possessing commercial TSDFs and those not possessing it. Tracts with Hispanic groups or areas with a large number of Hispanics contain more TSDFs.

Economic development -- Demographic aspects, Fertility, Human -- Economic aspects, and Developing countries -- Demographic aspects
A large body of research and theory seeking to explain fertility levels in less developed nations has stressed the effects of economic development on family-level decision making. While clearly a major factor, economic development levels fail to explain much of the variation in fertility rates. Some researchers have attempted to remedy this shortcoming by taking into account cross-national variation in income distributions, on the grounds that this approach provides a more refined indication of the real social consequences of economic development. The present analysis extends this tradition of research by arguing that the degree of disarticulation provides a theoretically more powerful and empirically more accurate way to operationalize these hypothesized distributional effects on fertility levels.
The commercial hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facilities (TSDFs) are located in proportionately poor and non-minority communities. The commercial TSDF census-tract communities are largely white and disproportionately industrial working-class residential areas. The TSDFs have not alleviated the minority percentage in the encircling communities and the longitudinal changes are same as those in other industrial areas. Contrary to these findings many environmentally related causes of morbidity and mortality have disproportionate affects on the minorities and the poor.
