  • Aesthetic feelings are distinguished from sensory feelings, now, by the fact that the former are related to the content of a presentation, the latter to the act itself. 21 Thus sensory feelings, but not aesthetic feelings, are directly sensitive to the quality and intensity of the act, and all sensations are, above a certain intensity, painful. Further, the sensory feeling disappears or is at least reduced to an almost unnoticeable intensity in the passage from sensation (perception) to a reproduced presentation in memory. ...

  • Your business, like all others, has formal and informal policies, practices, and procedures that keep it running smoothly. However, sometimes your policies or procedures can inadvertently make it difficult or impossible for a customer with a disability to access your goods and services. That is why the ADA requires businesses to make “reasonable modifications” to their usual ways of doing things when serving people with disabilities. Most modifications involve only minor adjustments in policies.

  • In the first year of an internal audit start-up, companies typically do not have a formal baseline from which to evaluate the effectiveness of control activities. As such, the initial risk assessment and audit plan are developed primarily at inherent risk level. Inherent risks are those present in the normal course of conducting business activities.

Motorcyclists experienced significantly higher average concentrations as a result of high-concentration and very-short-duration peaks not seen in the traces of car and bus commuters travelling on the same road.

  • A fund’s inventory of risks may be grouped or organized in different ways. One approach is to consider risks within two broad categories—investment risk and business operational risk. A board’s focus, though, should be on the key risks to the funds, and not on each discrete risk that exists. Investment risk is, in absolute terms, the risk of incurring any loss in the portfolio in pursuit of investment return, or, in relative terms, the risk of incurring losses greater than, or of earning gains less than, those of a benchmark index or alternative investment.

  • Over $4 trillion is currently managed by equity mutual funds in the U.S., with roughly 90 percent invested in actively managed accounts. These mutual funds hold over 25 percent of the outstanding equity value of the average U.S. common stock. This high level of ownership makes it very unlikely that the equity fund industry as a whole is able to outperform the market by a large margin. However, several recent papers show some evidence of manager skills among subgroups of funds (see, for example, Gruber (1996)).

  • The variety of brands and descriptions of what constitutes a brand creates opportunities for auto theft and fraud. Differences in title branding laws make it easier to sell stolen vehicles through title washing and VIN cloning. The practice of moving a salvage-branded vehicle to a state that requires different title brands or definitions to obtain a clear title is referred to as “title washing.” A person in one state, for example, repairs a damaged and salvage-branded vehicle, then moves it to another state to obtain an unbranded title.
