It would also promote the use of common objective measures to evaluate the progress of ongoing and completed infrastruc- ture projects. The council would work to identify opportunities for innovation and help develop new mechanisms for leveraging private investment.

  • Since the early 1970s, a quiet revolution – microfinance – has been sweeping the globe. Poverty can now, in part, be redefined as a lack of access to reliable, affordable financial services that enables people to build economic security and improve their lives. Microfinance, which has evolved in an array of formats, from regulated banks to Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSlAs), has made life better for millions, first through access to credit, but increasingly through savings, insurance and pension schemes as well.

  • Essence (Jing) is a fundamental material of the human body and the material basis for various physiological functions of the human body. The congenital essence is received from one's parents, and is stored in the kidney; it is also known as "the prenatal essence", serving to promote the growth, development maturity, and reproduction of the body, thus the congenital essence is also called the "reproductive essence. The acquired essence is derived through the functions of the Zang-Fu organs from the nutritive substance of food and drink to nourish the body.

  • Characterization of animal genetic resources for food and agriculture (AnGR) involves three types of information: phenotypic, genetic and historical. The weight given to each depends on the country (e.g. whether it is developed or developing) and the objective (e.g. improve- ment, conservation or breed differentiation). These guidelines focus on the collection and use of phenotypic information.

  • In this paper, we consider the extent to which these quality of life issues are supported by governmental action in Canada and four comparison nations. The information relevant to these issues comes primarily from two types of data sources: indicator analyses from international reports and intensive and detailed policy analyses of two policy issues of particular importance to women: childcare provision and gov- ernmental support for community-based long-term care. Canadian data are contrasted with those from Den- mark, Sweden, the UK, and the US.

  • The analysis is primary based on the national American Housing Survey (AHS) data for the period 1995 through 2003. In some cases, the research was extended to include the national level AHS data for 1985 onwards. One of the challenges to this effort is how to define elderly housing consumption. As will be discussed in the literature summary below, there are a number of standard assumptions but several of these will merit a brief discussion prior to our highlighting the different research.

  • Removing the constraint of acyclicity fromthe acyclic peer-to-peer architecture, we obtain the general peer-to-peer architecture. Like the acyclic peer-to-peer architecture, this architecture allows bidirectional communication between two servers, but the topology can form a general undirected graph, possibly having multiple paths between servers. An example is shown in Figure 7. The advantage of the general peer-to-peer architecture over the previous two architectures is that it requires less coordination and offers more flexi- bility in the configuration of connections among servers.

  • Government incentives and guarantees can then also be used – from support for research and development (R&D) - which affects operational efficiency- to investment incentives (capital grants, loan guarantees and low-interest rate loans), taxes (accelerated depreciation, tax credits, tax exemptions and rebates), and price-based policies at the output stage (which affect revenue streams - e.g. feed-in tariffs), or policies which target the cost of investment in capital by hedging or mitigating risk.

  • A third group of experiments explored possible differences in willingness to pay and willingness to accept. In these experiments, the choices involved valuations of everyday objects (e.g. a coffee mug). It has been suggested that observed differences are due to an asymmetry of preferences between losses and gains that might be exacerbated by age. Finally, both younger and older subjects participated in beauty contest games, in which strategic thinking plays a central role.

  • The perception of odour may result in some individuals reporting subjective sensory irritation, and individuals may perceive formaldehyde at concentrations below 0.1 mg/m3 . However, this is not considered to be an adverse health effect. The NOAEL of 0.6 mg/m3 for the eye blink response is adjusted using an assess- ment factor of 5 derived from the standard deviation of nasal pungency (sensory irritation) thresholds, leading to a value of 0.12 mg/m3 , which has been rounded down to 0.1 mg/m3 .

  • Brain morphology is in constant change from the very beginning of the neurodevelopment in human beings. The characterization of the brain morphology and its biological implications on a specific subject is a complex task which requires efficient computational approaches. Radiology has traditionally assessed the main brain changes in different alterations from a macroscopic point of view, thus, not considering subtle changes as a results of neuronal plasticity.

  • Throughout recorded history, humanity has honoured gods of war, such as Ares from Greek mythology. He was the son of Zeus and Hera, the king and queen of the Greek gods. Ares was the father of many children, most of who were war-like or were associated with war. In Roman mythology, Mars was the god of war. Before entering into battle, Roman troops offered sacrifices to him, and, when victorious in battle, Romans honoured Mars with a share of their swag.

  • This emphasis on the spectacular and exotic, consistent with an oppositional or marginal view of the consumer, is often also emphasised in academic writing on counterfeiting. Consumers of counterfeits are often represented through anecdotal narratives which serve as a proxy for deeper understanding of consumer motivations. For example, Lasica (2005) illustrates his work with case studies which potentially confuse everyday users with vanguard consumers.
