  • What are conditions like in primary schools? How many hours, if any, of English language learning do students receive before they enter secondary school? Is primary education free?

  • In the usual case where a single test is performed on the alpha of one fund (or one portfolio of funds), luck is controlled by setting the significance level γ (or equivalently the Size of the test). The standard approach differs from this framework because it boils down to running a multiple hypothesis test instead of a single one. The null hypothesis H0 of no performance is tested for each of the M funds in the population. In a multiple testing framework, luck refers to the number (or the proportion) of lucky funds among the significant funds that are discovered.

  • “Whether it’s OEM or third party, the equipment itself should cost about the same,” says Tucker. “It’s the service contract that tends to be different and cost a little more through the OEM. But for good reason: a third-party vendor might be a one- or two-person operation, which means if your equipment goes down there may be a delay in service.” Additional factors to consider if dealing with a third-party vendor are the vendor’s inventory supply and how it handles a sale.

  • Our supervisory framework was not equipped to handle a crisis of this magnitude. To be sure, most of the largest, most interconnected, and most highly leveraged financial firms in the country were subject to some form of supervision and regulation by a federal government agency. But those forms of supervision and regulation proved inadequate and inconsistent. First, capital and liquidity requirements were simply too low.

Digital data are data represented in a numerical form. With modern computers, it is common for the data to be internally represented in a binary encoding, but this is not a requirement. A digital object is a discrete collection of digital data, such as a file, a hard disk sector, a network packet, a memory page, or a process....

  • Audit Committees are no more than a part of those defences. But we believe that they are a most important part and that there could be considerable benefits if their role were clarified and enhanced. This would be beneficial not only in increasing the level of assurance against catastrophic failure and gross malfeasance; it would also offer improvements on a wider front, raising the overall standard of corporate governance for all companies that implement our guidance.

  • Form DQA (Design Quality Audit Checklist) is used to perform, record, and certify the audit. A non-conformance with the quality process results in the documents being returned to the Originator to bring the package into compliance. If the audit finds all documents in conformance, the DQAM completes and signs Form DQA to document and certify that the QMP requirements have been followed. At the appropriate time, the DQAM also uses Form DQA to certify that the design package is approved for RFC (Refer to section 4.7 RFC Procedure).

  • In May of 2000, I graduated with an undergraduate degree in elementary education and a minor in English as a Second Language. My first teaching position was in a rural school district. I taught fourth through eighth grade bilingual classes, two sections of seventh and eighth grade Spanish, and worked with several at-risk students. Frustrated by the educational gains these students made, and the lack of respect for bilingual education, I applied and was hired for my current fourth grade position in a neighboring school district.

  • Adding oxygenates to gasoline has the effect of making the engine run leaner: since some oxygen is already present in the fuel molecules, the total amount of oxygen (from the air and from the oxygenates) relative to carbon and hydrogen in the fuel is greater. Running the engine leaner reduces the emissions of CO substantially; it also reduces the emissions of unburned hydrocarbons to some extent. Since the largest source of CO emissions is the automobile exhaust, use of oxygenated fuels substantially reduces the emissions of this pollutant.

  • Learning skills and remembering facts in mathematics are important but they are only the means to an end. Facts and skills are not important in themselves. They are important when we need them to solve a problem. Students will remember facts and skills easily when they use them to solve real problems. As well as using mathematics to solve real-life problems, students should also be taught about the different parts of mathematics, and how they fit together.

  • The issue of health system financing has dominated the health care agenda of consecutive governments since the changeover from the communist regime. The first wave of reforms (1989–1993) transformed the system from one financed primarily through taxes to one based on compulsory health insurance. In 2009 Hungary spent 7.4% of its GDP on health, with public expenditure accounting for 69.7% of total health spending. Health spending has been unstable over the years, with several waves of increases followed by longer periods of cost-containment and budget cuts.
