  • Regarding the neural correlates of these operations, Chatterjee (2003) suggested that early visual processing of the basic features of artworks and other aesthetic stimuli takes place in occipital brain regions, like any other kind of stimuli. However, features processed in intermediate stages, such as shape or composition, can engage frontal-parietal attentional circuits, which enhance the processing of those attributes within the ventral visual stream (Chatterjee, 2003).

  • Although assembling of a number of device parts is not really a problem in the macroscaleworld, it needs to be delicately handled in themicroscaleworld. Themain point is the adjustment and alignment accuracy of the parts. Moreover, problems of sealing, fixation and bonding technology may also occur depending on the material and the parameters of the designated process of the device.Depending on the surface quality and the bonding technology applied, aligning errors may reach similar dimensions compared to themicrostructure itself. An example of the same is shown in Figure 1.11.

  • Periodontal disease progression is episodic in nature on a tooth site level, but more recently, it has been realized that it is principally patient-based rather than site-based (Zia et al., 2011); the host related risk factors could be the key to better understand disease evolution. The available evidence shows that important risk factors for periodontal disease relate to poor oral hygiene, tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption, stress, and diabetes mellitus (Laurina et al., 2009; Taylor & Borgnakke, 2008).

  • The other routing protocols have been proposed in WSN to improve QoS other restrictions such as the delay. The problem here is that the complexity of the routing protocol significantly increased with integration of more than one QoS parameter. Indeed, define a QoS route meets two or more countries not limited correlation (eg, delay, and bandwidth) is an NP- complete problem (Mellouk et al, 2007), because many limitations optimal path problem can not be solved in polynomial time.

  • Noteworthy is that different publication mediums are valued differently within the scientific community. Also, universities are ranked based on the number and level of publications. Journal articles are commonly recognised above conference papers, even if many of the conference publications use peer review practices. It is recommended that a researcher, even at early stages, should start the learning process of writing for journals. Once experience is gained, one should raise his ambition level step-by-step and aim towards publishing in increasingly better journals.

  • This book explores four overlapping themes in biogeography among multiple plant and animal groups, across subcontinental to global spatial scales, and over evolutionary time. These four themes include: 1) biogeographic theory and tests of concepts and processes; 2) the regional biogeography of individual taxa; 3) historical and contemporary biogeography of complex landscapes; and 4) the evolutionary biogeography of macrotaxa. In the first chapter of the conceptual biogeography section, Khalid Al Mutairi et al.

  • Regions and gates can be made to better separate and analyze populations of interest. Furthermore, on the basis that the dyes used to stain cells have overlapping emission spectra, the compensation is normally made to reduce interference. While basic instruments may only permit the simultaneous collection of two or three fluorescence signals, the more complex and expensive research instruments mean that it is possible to obtain more than 14 parameters (Winson & Davey, 2000; Chattopadhyay et al., 2008) depending on the laser equipment utilized.

  • Each household member records spending for the same two diary weeks, so we must pool observations across households to study expenditures over an entire month. Given that distance from payday is orthogonal to household characteristics, this pooling should not bias our estimate of the relationship between distance and spending.8 We impose a number of sample restrictions. People paid weekly are excluded, because every diary week includes a payday for these individuals.

  • WWF has long recognised the importance of the European Union’s regional, agriculture and rural development as well as other funds for the environment. With over € 80 billion expenditure each year spread across the 25 European Union member states, the funds have an enormous potential to cause environmental damage. WWF national organisations working closely with other environmental NGOs have had to be constantly vigilant over the past 15 years to see that the funds are spent wisely.

  • Firms obviously choose to insure risk-averse workers when the premium is fair. They may choose to do so even if the premium is slightly higher than the expected cost. Nevertheless, if a firm’s expected health cost is significantly lower than the premium, it may choose not to offer insurance to workers. As we have just observed, small firms have higher variances in health costs. Hence, relative to large firms, more small firms will have expected costs that are significantly below the offered premium, and they choose not to offer insurance to workers.

  • In argentina many pregnant women do not visit health centres until late in their pregnancy. There is no gender-specific HIV strategy within the government’s HIV prevention program, and most cases of HIV infection among infants stem from the lack of antenatal care and insufficient information and counselling provided to women on HIV/ AIDS and sexual and reproductive rights. Health care access varies widely across the country, and stigma and discrimination from health care workers impedes service utilization.

  • From our earlier analysis, increasing controlling owners’ equity ownership beyond the minimum level needed for effective control creates incentive alignment effects that curtail entrenchment effects, which in turn increase earnings informativeness. On the other hand, the information argument suggests a negative relation between ownership concentration and earnings informativeness. As the incentive alignment and the information effects could coexist, the relation between ownership concentration and earnings informativeness is ambiguous and needs to be addressed empirically....
