GAO Report (Sept 2006) Timeline For IMP Interaction of Baseline and Continuing Assessments Condition of gas transmission pipelines are better than original public perception
GAO concludes that 7 year reassessment period is conservative Requesting Flexibility in IMP Program Schedule Public Workshop to gather comments on Special Permit and Criteria Discussion for 7year Reassessments Location: Arlington, Virginia Jan 18, 2008
Congressional Testimony - March 2008 Number of Reportable Incidents Number of Immediate Repairs Number of Scheduled Repairs Ongoing Initiatives to Improve Performance
Anomaly Assessment and Repair Workshop - October 22, 2008 Conclusions Natural Gas is a Very Important Energy Source Flexible and Readily Available Bridge Fuel for Climate Change Energy Security Public Risk Can and Is Being Managed
Flexibility in the IMP Program is Very Desirable Commitment to Ongoing Improvement Background Material

Alpha-Glucosidase enzymes in the brush border of the small intestine, along with pancreatic alpha-amylase, are responsible for hydrolysis of complex starches, oligosaccharides, trisaccharides, and disaccharides. Acarbose and miglitol delay digestion of starches and disaccharides, and so reducing postprandial glucose levels.

MIPS Operands. MIPS is a register-to-register, or load/store,architecture. The destination and sources must all beregisters. Special instructions, which we'll see soon, are needed to access main memory. MIPS uses three-address instructions for datamanipulation. Each ALU instruction contains a destination and...
