Gamboa and his brother Adiel experimented with putting different motors in the car to see which would allow it to go fastest. They lost many drag races before they started winning, but eventually they were racing the cherry red Bug all across Mexico.

In this paper, we present SA, an approach to intention selection based on Single Player Monte Carlo Tree Search that selects which intention to progress at the current cycle at the level of individual plan steps. We evaluate the performance of our approach in a range of scenarios of increasing difficulty in both static and dynamic environments. The results suggest SA out performs existing approaches to intention selection both in terms of goals achieved and the variance in goal achievement time..
This is the first time in living memory that a VP pick has really generated this sort of sensation. Just the fact that it has excited and rejuvenated the right wing Conservatives is huge for McCain. He needs them to win. Data were collected over 2.5 years using focus groups and in depth semistructured interviews with immigrant women (n = 34), healthcare providers (n = 29), and social service providers (n = 23) in a Canadian province. Purposive samples of each subgroup were generated, and recruitment and data collection ” including interpretation and verification of translations ” were facilitated through the hiring of community researchers and collaborations with key informants.Results: The findings indicate that (a) communication difficulties, (b) lack of information, (c) lack of social support (isolation), (d) cultural beliefs, e) inadequate healthcare services, and (f) cost of medicine/services represent potential barriers to the access to and navigation of maternity services by immigrant women in Canada. Having successfully accessed and navigated services, immigrant women often face additional challenges that influence their level of satisfaction and quality of care, such as lack of understanding of the informed consent process, lack of regard by professionals for confidential patient information, short consultation times, short hospital stays, perceived discrimination/stereotyping, and culture shock.Findings from a large mixed methodological study funded by a regional grant.
