  • A science of positive subjective experience, positive individual traits, and positive institutions promises to improve quali~.' of life and prevent the pathologies that arise when life is barren and meaningless. The exclusive focus on pathology that has dominated so much of our discipline results in a model of the human being lacking the positive features that make life worth living. Hope, wisdom, creativity, future mindedness, courage, spirituality, responsibility, and perseverance are ignored or explained as transformations of more authentic negative impulses.

  • No government can live and flourish without having as part of its system of administration of civil affairs some permanent human force, invested with acknowledged and supreme authority, and always in a position to exercise it promptly and efficiently, in case of need, on any proper call. It must be permanent in its character. Only what is permanent will have the confidence of the people. It must always be ready to act on the instant. The unexpected is continually happening, and it is emergencies that put governments to the test. The judiciary holds this position in the United States.

  • .“How to Hire a Champion is highly accessible and thought provoking. It has the uncanny power of putting the reader in multiple positions—that of candidate, hiring manager, CEO, and coworker—so as to provide 360 degree insight into the optimal hiring process. Moreover, its emphasis on character, self-competition, and persistence raise it to another level—one of guidance and inspiration for the same 360 degree set of individuals. It is a book to be read again for its deeper meanings. I recommend it to all and especially to my children.” —Peter C.

  • Often communities have to deal with local political considerations when they plan events. No specific advice can be given to the promoter except to warn him or her that political considerations are always important to the local community. Often a way to encourage elected political officials to support an event is to show the monetary or quality-of-life impact that a successful event would have on their communities or careers.

  • The second domain, environmental pollutants, encompasses exposures that might bring about chronic conditions or exacerbate these conditions. We include in this domain air, water, and other toxic pollutants. For example, repeated exposure to toxic waste sites may result in malignancies later in life (American Cancer Society, 2002), which in turn may lead to functional decline (Teno et al., 2001; Michael et al., 2000). Thus, exposure to water contamination or toxic wastes is likely to affect health status, particularly though cumulated effects in the lifecourse.

  • In the third century of the Common Era (CE), when Rome dominated not only Europe, but also North Africa and the Near East, it was able to deploy fifty legions throughout the empire. In this forward defense strategy even the furthermost areas of the empire were secured by the on-site presence of an adequate number of legions of the Roman army. However, the empire had lost much of its muscle by the fourth century CE and the forces of Rome had diminished to only about twenty-five legions.

  • We posit that the Russian fiscal system presents noteworthy shortcomings relative to the Chinese system. These include lack of transparency in the capture of energy revenues, lack of integration of fiscal expenditures into a unified Treasury system, and massive implicit subsidies in relationships between producers and both national and sub- national governments. Further, we argue that, at least in the rapidly-growing coastal provinces of China, the public sector in China is moving more rapidly than in Russia toward a greater orientation to growth-supporting activities.

  • Reasonable as they might seem, the stakeholder arguments with respect to practitioneroriented research do not hold up under scrutiny. There is no self-evident relationship between lack of theory in a discipline and the ability to undertake research/consultancy for industry in marketing or elsewhere (Grey, 2001). There is mounting evidence, and there has been for some time, that marketing knowledge in its current form is not particularly valued by business.

  • PERHAPS the greatest asset of the United States in the present condition of tension in international relations is its strong na- tional economy. It is this economic strength which, in large meas- ure, is responsible for the rise of this nation to a position of tre- mendous power and influence, and for the development of an unrivaled standard of living for its citizenry. Economically power- ful though the United States may be, however, it is not self-suffi- cient. The world is, in fact, economically interdependent.

  • Depressed mothers in developed countries have been observed to provide less quantity and poorer quality of stimulation for their infants (100) and to be slower in responding and less responsive to them (101, 102). Depressed mothers are also more likely to have negative views of themselves as parents (103), seeing themselves as having less personal control over their child’s development, and less able to positively influence their children1 . In summary, maternal mental health is inextricably linked with both physical and psychological development of children.

  • This property is required because the empirically observed densities of returns contrast with the Gaussian model [see Pagan 1996]. This rejection results from two stylised facts. First, large price changes appear more frequently than the normal density would lead to expect. Second, there are indications of significant asymmetry in stock returns. In other words, negative and positive price changes do not have the same probability. These two stylised facts are also apparent in implied volatilities.
