provides insight into the early assessment process and the application of precaution,
an often poorly described management action rarely captured in peer review
literature. The situation surrounding this potential new threat to blood safety was
largely resolved in mid-2011 when it was determined that the virus was an artifact
from contaminated patient samples and from contamination stemming from a
diagnostic test kit widely used by researchers.
Phenotypic characterization activities are technically and logistically challenging. Ensur-
ing that they are well targeted (collect data that are important to the country’s priority
AnGR- and livestock-development activities) and are carried out in an efficient and cost-
effective manner requires thorough planning and careful implementation. Valid compari-
sons among livestock breeds or populations, whether nationally or internationally, require
the development and use of standard practices and formats for describing their character-
The European Commission contracted RAND Europe and the Trimbos Institute to analyse in detail the operation of the world market in illicit drugs and the policies aimed at curtailing it. This was in the context of the European Union’s Strategy on Drugs 20052012 which calls for evidence-based policies and in turn responds to the EU Resolution adopted by the UN’s Commission on Narcotic Drugs, calling for ‘… an objective, scientific, balanced and transparent assessment by Member States of the global progress achieved and of the difficulties encountered in...

In a world where ownership is divorced from control, characterised by economic and geo-political uncertainty, our companion text Portfolio Theory and Financial Analyses (PTFA henceforth) began with the following question. We then observed that if investors are rational and capital markets are efficient with a large number of constituents,economic variables (such as share prices and returns) should be random, which simplifies matters.
The aim of this book is to provide an understanding of how to
analyse and assess the performance of a company from the information
provided about it.
Financial analysis is as much an art as it is a science. Combine any
two figures from an annual report and a ratio is produced; the real skill
is in deciding which figures to use, where to find them and how to judge
This book considers diagnosis and treatment of abdominal and thoracic aortic
aneurysms. It addresses vascular and cardiothoracic surgeons and interventional
radiologists, but also anyone engaged in vascular medicine. The book focuses amongst
other things on operations in the ascending aorta and the aortic arch. Surgical
procedures in this area have received increasing attention in the last few years and
have been subjected to several modifications.
Exploring the implementation of participatory, multistakeholder, and transdisciplinary ecosystem health research, Integrated Assessment of Health and Sustainability of Agroecosystems combines the latest theories in complexity and management with practical tools and approaches for sustainable rural development research. Although the text focuses on smallholder farming communities in the central highlands of Kenya, the material discussed can be-and has been-effectively applied to agroecosystems in many other parts of the world.
This is a political history of Labour's use of the tax system from
1906 to 1979: an epilogue brings the story up to the present,
surveying New Labour's tax policies and dilemmas. Richard
Whiting's broad-ranging, lucid and readable study examines
how Labour used tax to further its political aims of funding
welfare, managing the economy, promoting fairness and
achieving greater equality.

hydrophobic compounds and thereby act as lipophilic antioxidants preventing
polyunsaturated fatty acids from oxidative damages. In fact, carotenoids are incorporated
into lipid membranes and thus could act as chain-breaking antioxidants by stopping free
radical chain reactions (propagation of lipid peroxidation), scavenging lipid peroxyl radicals
(LOO•), avoiding the abstraction of allylic hydrogens from neighboring lipids. Inactivation
of lipoxygenase activity by carotenoids is also proposed as another mechanism of protection
against oxidative stress.
We seek to be people who are honorable, forthright, and upright at all times.
Our commitment to integrity demands more than mere satisfaction of legal
and ethical obligations, although we comply with the law and conform to the
highest standards of ethical conduct. Our commitment to integrity means that
we actively discern what is right from what is wrong, that what we do flows
directly from who we are, that we seek consistency between our inner self and
our outward conduct. We value people, we speak the truth, we have the courage
of our convictions, and we keep our commitments....
While vacationing with my family at Walt Disney World, I decided that I was going to capture some of the marketing genius that I believe began with Walt’s passion and has now grown into one of the world’s most powerful brands.
I have long believed that Walt Disney’s genius was not animation or theme park design, but in truly understanding the human heart. Somehow, in the midst of ROI, measurability, counting clicks and studies that can track a person’s eye movements to see what part of an ad captures their attention first -- we have forgotten that marketing and branding is...
Contrary to the common method of analyzing the relationship between painting
and cinema, the book disclaims obvious uses of painting in cinema such as in procedures of
quotations, thematic coincidences, or formal references3
. In this regard, Bonfand’s
approach takes into account one of the main intuitions of Jacques Aumont’s
groundbreaking book, L’oeil interminable: the rejection of any literal pictorial citation.
Straight citation is a pitfall for cinema: ‘Painting sometimes becomes in the film and even
in cinema in general a regressive and often unfounded mean.
Conceptually, the equity method treats the investee company as if it were condensed into
one balance sheet item and one income statement item and then merged into the investor
company at the proportion owned by the investor. The equity method is sometimes called
“one-line consolidation” because it results in the same effect on the investor’s earnings and
retained earnings as would result from consolidating the financial statements of the investor
and investee companies. It does so without combining both companies’ financial statements.
The systematic review search process identified 162 relevant articles published, with an
English abstract, in peer-reviewed journals since 1st
January 1958 until 29th
2008. A total of 3558 comparisons of content of nutrients and other substances in
organically and conventionally produced foodstuffs were extracted for analysis.
The abuse of older people by family members dates
back to ancient times. Until the advent of initiatives
to address child abuse and domestic violence in the
last quarter of the 20th century, it remained a
private matter, hidden from public view. Initially
seen as a social welfare issue and subsequently a
problem of ageing, abuse of the elderly, like other
forms of family violence, has developed into a
public health and criminal justice concern.
Premium and cost sharing subsidies will be available
through the Exchange for individuals with incomes up
to 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL)4 who
do not qualify for Medi-Cal and do not have any family
members with an offer of affordable job-based coverage.
5 A separate Small Business Health Options Plan
(SHOP) exchange will offer coverage to firms of 50 or
fewer workers between 2014 and 2016, after which
time it will be open to firms of 100 or fewer workers.
Small businesses with low-wage workforces may be
eligible for tax credits through the SHOP exchange.
While structuring financing packages for vital projects is among the most impor-
tant roles the federal government plays in infrastructure investment, its activities
extend well beyond this role and into research, issuing regulations, awarding
grants, environmental protection, and even directly operating and maintaining
locks, dams, bridges, and utilities throughout our country. To coordinate all of
these activities and maximize the efficiency of federal infrastructure programs, we
need a national infrastructure planning council.
