  • This is because IT uses primers based on allele sequences of functionally characterized genes, and thus specific banding patterns corresponding to plant phenotypes can be identified (Cernák, 2008; Cernák et al., 2008; Gizaw, 2011). However, development of such markers depends on the availability of robust genomic databases holding several target sequences for IT marker development. Functional gene characterization criteria might be limiting factors, since it is not possible to establish gene functions in a molecular ecological sense for all genes.

  • Real and perceived quality gaps in public coverage and delivery systems serve as an impetus for PHI purchases in some countries. Waiting times, increasing demand for choice, and perceptions of inadequacy of public systems are leading motivations in Ireland, Australia, Denmark, and the United Kingdom. Where public cover is not provided, primary PHI policies are purchased mainly to minimise the financial risks associated with illness. Finally, the diversity in consumer attitudes and preferences is difficult to compare across countries.

  • One of the key economic functions of credit institutions is to convert short- term deposits into long-term loans. Depending on the scale of this maturity transformation – which essentially determines the risk arising from a bank’s balance sheet structure – sharply fl uctuating market interest rates can have a considerable impact on banks’ earnings and on their capital base. The increas- ing complexity of markets makes effective processes for measuring and man- aging interest rate exposure an essential business requirement for credit insti- tutions.

  • During the time we met as a Commission, tragedies such as the African famines, the leak at the pesticides factory at Bhopal, India, and the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl, USSR appeared to justify the grave predictions about the human future that were becoming commonplace during the mid-1980s. But at public hearings we held on five continents, we also heard from the individual victims of more chronic, widespread disasters: the debt crisis, stagnating aid to and investment in developing countries, falling commodity prices and falling personal incomes.

Income maintenance programs require special records retention periods. Records documenting that clients received notices of overpayments must be retained until the overpayment issue is resolved, however long that takes.

Complications of ABRS include orbital, intracranial, or soft tissue involvement. Alternative diagnoses include malignancy and other noninfectious causes of facial pain. Radiographic imaging may also be obtained when the pa- tient has modifying factors or comorbidities that predispose to complications, including diabetes, immune compromised state, or a past history of facial trauma or surgery.
