  • The first report of a quantitative risk evaluation applied to health goes back to Laplace, in the late eighteenth century, which calculated the probability of death among people with and without vaccination for smallpox. With Pasteur's studies in the late nineteenth century, it was possible to use the tools of statistics to evaluate the factors related to communicable diseases, giving birth to the concept of epidemiological risk (Covello; Munpower, 1985, Czeresnia, 2004).

  • Ownership rates across all age groups increased between 1985 and 2003. Again, this is a well- documented and understood change that has been driven by a number of economic factors, including, but not limited to, falling interest rates, rising standards of living, public policies helping low- and middle-income families afford home ownership. Among the elderly population, the ownership rate for population 85 and over exhibited the highest increase – i.e., 16 percentage points. Data show that the ownership rate peaks at the age 62 to 74.

  • Not long ago, social media seemed so new and different that it was treated as an appendage of sorts—a kind of marketing that should be tried only by “experts.” While that view still exists to some degree today, it’s become clear to many that social media is no longer marketing’s new thing. It’s now simply part of the way we do marketing today. I believe that the proper way to view social media from a small-business owner’s point of view is as more of an evolution than a revolution.

  • Similar performance benefits are also available in gas turbine an reciprocating gas engine cogeneration systems. For example, an class technology gas turbine generator with feeding to an HRSG (which in turn provides process steam) can yield overall energy effectiveness levels between 80-85% depending upon process steam conditions. In comparison, the same F-class gas turbine i combined cycle (and producing power only) yields an overall energy effectiveness of between 50-55% depending upon the c design. This comparison is illustrated in Figure 3.

  • A second paragraph will address Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS) that has been tested on phantoms mimicking melanoma. A third paragraph will talk about two techniques that have given preliminary results on potential Breslow index determination: the first one, infrared microimaging, performed on fixed and paraffin-embedded tissues (i.e. after excision of the tumour) and the second one, photoacoustic microscopy, performed in vivo on mice on which melanoma human cells were xenografted.

  • Although poor mental health has often been correlated with poor educational attainment and/or dropping out of education, there have been few longitudinal studies on this subject. In this paper, we investigate this issue using a recent longitudinal study of young people in England. England is a very interesting country to under- take such an investigation because both poor mental health and a high drop-out rate of young people are known to be important by international standards.

  • Employing a model of the Walrasian or Arrow-Debreu economy to rescue underdeveloped monetary theory has in the past led to fundamental conceptual confusions. For example, if the medium of exchange function is introduced, via a cash-in-advance or in-arrears constraint, money appears to be a welfare reducing innovation or a friction when history and common sense tells us that money was a welfare enhancing innovation that helped to reduce the frictions of barter.

  • The physical, social and intellectual development of children from conception to the end of adolescence requires an environment that is both protected and protective of their health. A growing number of dis- eases in children are linked to unsafe environments. Prenatal and early life exposures, including diet, are associated with child health and human development and predispose to late adult effects. Thus, the INMA project is based on three main rationales. First, exposure to environmental pollutants through air, water and food is worldwide.

  • We will also use weight for height, weight for age, and leg length for age as health measures. Weight for Height provides a measure of short run changes in nutritional status. Wasting, or low weight relative to kids of the same age and sex of the reference population, might be due to starvation and severe disease (in particular diarrhea). Lack of evidence of wasting in a population does not imply the absence of long run nutritional status reflected in low height for age. The relation between weight and age is a composite measure of height for age and weight for...

  • Events following entry of bacilli: Phagocytosis of M.tuberculosis by alveolar macrophages is the firstevent in the host-pathogen relationship that decidesoutcome of infection. Within 2 to 6 wk of infection,cell-mediated immunity (CMI) develops, and thereis an influx of lymphocytes and activatedmacrophages into the lesion resulting in granulomaformation. The exponential growth of the bacilli ischecked and dead macrophages form a caseum. Thebacilli are contained in the caseous centers of thegranuloma.

  • Having studied the effect of monetary policy and capital ows shocks on housing activity, our second contribution is to explore how nancial innovation affects the transmission of the two shocks. Using an index of mortgage market development constructed in IMF (2008), 1 we split our sample in two groups of countries (with high and low mortgage market development) and estimate our panel VAR model across the two subsamples. We also split the sample using the ratio of mortgage debt to GDP in 2004.

  • The chapters in this book reflect leading edge ideas, reflections and observations. Even though the modern era of sleep research evolved from Aserinksky’s observations of rapid eye movements in the sleep of babies, most work is nonetheless done in adults. There is much less formal work done in youngsters and virtually none in utero and pregnancy itself is virtually unexplored. So, Dr Miller et al’s chapter reviewing sleep in pregnancy is particularly welcome as it incorporates current thinking in how disordered sleep impacts other adult pathological processes.

  • Ideally a screening test should detect all clinically significant prostate cancers and not benign pathologies. It has been normal practice that men who are found to have an abnormal serum PSA level should have a prostate biopsy. For example, the UK Prostate Cancer Risk Management Programme (PCRMP) states “if your PSA is definitely raised, a prostate biopsy is required to determine whether cancer is present” The justification for performing biopsy in men with an abnormal PSA is that they are at high risk of prostate cancer.

  • Selection of chemical markers is crucial for the quality control of herbal medicines, including authentication of genuine species, harvesting the best quality raw materials, evaluation of post- harvesting handling, assessment of intermediates and finished products, and detection of harmful or toxic ingredients. Ideal chemical markers should be the therapeutic components of herbal medicines. However, for most herbal medicines, the therapeutic components have not been fully elucidated or easily monitored.

It is hardly to be emphasized that the importance of the Co-operative movement in our country has greatly increased in regard to the upliftment of the economic condition of the people in general and the weaker section of the society in particular. Their sphere of activities has by now widened to a great extent. Besides arranging for credit facilities for agricultural purposes they are catering to the other needs of the society as well.
