Exporter makes sure the L/C is valid and corresponds to the timetables agreed
with the Importer regarding both the delivery of the goods and payments. Another
question: can the documents be negotiated or transferred within the term of the
L/C? Can the Exporter accept all the restrictions and limitations of the L/C? Are
there any impossible conditions (for instance, in contravention of the foreign
exchange regime) or wrong details (name of a port which does not exist, etc.)
FinCEN agrees that both the insurance regulators and industry will benefit from a
more industry-specific format for reporting suspicious activity. Currently, insurance
industry SARs are being filed on the SAR-SF, which was designed for the Securities
and Futures industry. The Suspicious Activity Report by Insurance Companies No-
tice and Request for Comment was published in the Federal Register on November
Some years ago in one of those all too rare moments of reflection it
occurred to me that I was only three lifetimes away from the very
beginnings of modern psychology. It is generally agreed, as we will
see, that what we call "scientific psychology" began with Wundt's
laboratory at Leipzig around 1879. Similarly, applied psychology is
seen to have begun with the work of Francis Galton in England at
about the same time.
A short time later James McKeen Cattell, one of Wundfs first
American students received his Ph.D. at Leipzig and went on to work
briefly with Galton.
Take for example an investment contract with an annuitisation option where
the annuity factor is the same as new annuities offered by the insurer at the
time the option is executed. Since the insurer is free to determine the
annuity factor, the annuitisation is in substance the formation of a new
contract, the terms of which are agreed at the date the option is exercised.
The contract cannot therefore be classified as an insurance contract
Figures from the KIEA, combined and put another way, tell us this: While women make
up more than 50 percent of the U.S. adult population, and about 46 percent of the
civilian workforce, they account for only about 35 percent of the people who get involved
in starting businesses.
(This number agrees fairly closely with other figures, not shown in the table above, which
find that of all privately held firms in the U.S, about 29 percent are ―women-owned‖ and
another 12 percent are ―equally owned‖ by women and men.)
So women lag at the...
So, as journeys to find firewood get longer, maintaining the fertility of the soil gets harder,
catches of fish get smaller, and the hands to do the work get fewer, the need to
effectively manage natural resources has never been greater. Similarly, improving
communication as a tool to facilitate the better management of limited resources has
never been more critical. But, finding ways to sustainably and equitably steward and
share these resources will require dialogue and compromise at global, national and
Most medical gentlemen will, it is supposed, agree that the greater part of the numerous train of diseases to
which their patients are subject, have been brought on by improper conduct and imprudence. That this conduct
often proceeds from ignorance of its bad effects, may be presumed; for though it cannot be denied that some
persons are perfectly regardless with respect to their health, yet the great mass of mankind are too sensible of
the enjoyment and loss of this greatest of blessings, to run headlong into danger with their eyes open._...
Most interviewees agree concerning the basic characteristics and traits for a project
leader. These characteristics include: forward-looking; competent; inspiring; intelligent;
enterprising spirit; loyalty; leadership motivation; integrity; self-confidence; and
knowledgeable of the business. As identified by this group of experts, one of the
important traits is the ability to communicate effectively.
Another challenge of researching traditional medical practices is the lack of consistency
and clarity in the terminology used by authors to describe various beliefs and practices.
Often the term “traditional medicine” is loosely applied to a variety of diverse activities
that are not always uniformly acknowledged among Indigenous practitioners and their
clients. It is a useful exercise to discuss the variety of definitions that traditional medicine
is, or is not accorded, the latter being the case in most academic and non-academic
Shaw Corporation recently requested a contractor to prepare a proposal to refurbish the exterior of its office building. Shaw wanted to give its building a “face lift.” The contractor provided the following bid document:
Add extension to front porch approach $70,000
Install shrubs and trees 8,750
Replace rotting exterior siding material 26,250
Replace burned out exterior light bulbs 1,750
Assume that Shaw Corporation agreed to the bid, and authorized the work. What journal entry would be appropriate for each of the above expenditures?...
Some people think children’s spending time on TV, video and PC games is good, while others think it is bad. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
Some people think that criminals should be given longer terms in prison, so as to reduce the crime rate. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Old generations often hold some traditional ideas on the correct way of life, thinking and behavior. However, some people think that it is not helpful for the young generations to prepare for modern life in the future. What’s your opinion?...

The environment is key to sustaining human economic activity and well-being, for
without a healthy environment, human quality of life is reduced. Most people
would agree that there are also many reasons to protect the environment for its own
inherent worth, and especially to leave a legacy of fully functioning natural
resources. Sustainable land management refers to the activities of humans and
implies that activity will continue in perpetuity. It is a term that attempts to balance
the often conflicting ideals of economic growth and maintaining environmental
quality and viability....
A contract governs the rights and duties of the parties to it. A contract may be oral, but
lawyers prefer written contracts to help make certain that the parties agree on the terms of
the contract. This article summarizes ten critical things you should consider before
signing any contract.

While the term “Sovereign Wealth Fund” was coined only recently, SWFs have
a more than 50-year history, with the first fund established by Kuwait in 1953.
There is no universally agreed upon definition of SWFs. The U.S. Treasury
Department narrowly defines SWFs as “a government investment vehicle which is
funded by foreign exchange assets, and which manages those assets separately from
the official reserves of the monetary authorities (the Central Bank and reserve-related
functions of the Finance Ministry).”13
However, a specific feature of local Thai food markets is the coexistence of different environ-
mentally friendly, healthy or hygienic labels. Therefore governmental institutions started differ-
ent certification systems for different safe food products (Eischen, Prasertsri, and Sirikeratikul
2006). Safe Food labels were therefore introduced by the Thai Government. They are based on
standards that have been agreed upon by both The Ministry of Public Health and The Ministry of
Agriculture and Cooperatives.
Th is motivation explains the desire for continually increasing
executive salaries, but does not justify them. Nor does it explain
why the higher salaries are agreed to. Recognition of ability is
an understandable desire in members of every profession, and
higher salary is one of the means of providing it. Yet it is not the
case that salaries in every other profession are continually rising
in real terms. Th us the desire for recognition might explain the
motivation of executives seeking higher salaries, but does not
explain why they are awarded. Th is motivation also...
