  • At the peak of the stock market boom in the late 1990s, state and local public pension systems experienced an unprecedented growth in their asset value. As a result, pension benefits for public employees were increased in many states and at the same time government employers reduced their contribution to the pension systems. The stock market downturn between 2000 and 2002, however, brought this almost perfect combination to a halt.

  • Since the 1980s many funds charge 12b-1 fees, which are used to pay for marketing and distribution costs and are included in the fund's expense ratio. Many funds offer multiple share classes (such as A, B, or C classes) with different combinations of loads and 12b-1 fees. To approximate the total cost of mutual fund shares, we aggregate all the costs incurred by fund shareholders using the now standard total ownership cost (TOC) measure introduced by Sirri and Tufano (1998).

  • Floods are part of nature. It is not technically feasible nor economically affordable to prevent all properties from flooding. Therefore a risk-based approach is taken to achieve the best results possible using the budget and resources available. As almost all of the Environment Agency’s funding has historically come from the taxpayer, we have a responsibility to ensure we achieve as much benefit as possible from the funds provided.

  • The key concern with respect to project progress reports is that they contain information that is relevant to the reader, that progress against what was planned is assessed (performance), and that the information is clearly and concisely presented. More information is not better information – quality is the key. The Common Relex Information System (CRIS) provides a standardized structure for reporting on the implementation of EC funded projects (through the ‘Implementation Report’ window). This information must be regularly updated.

  • Finally, a few words of caution. Vision is given a prominent position in aesthetics, often dominating the other senses. The present approach is similar in this, but it should be stressed that hearing, touch, smell, and even taste all are implicated in perceptual processing. The vision system in the brain is linked to the other sensory systems, which permits interaction at an early processing stage. At a later stage, visual information is integrated with other kinds of sensory information to produce multimodal perceptual experiences and mental imagery....

  • One of the key features that enables the Greenplum Database to scale linearly and achieve such high performance is its ability to utilize the full local disk I/O bandwidth of each system. Typical configurations can achieve from 1 to more than 2.5 gigabytes per second sustained I/O bandwidth per machine. This rate is entirely scalable, and overall I/O bandwidth can be increased linearly by simply adding nodes without any concerns of saturating a SAN/shared-storage backplane.

  • Much of this debate reflects differences in analysis scope (Litman 2009b). Highway expansion advocates tend to focus on traffic congestion reduction objectives and ignore the negative effects of induced vehicle travel and sprawl. 1 Advocates of investments in alternative modes tend to consider a wider range of impacts and objectives, including traffic congestion reduction, parking cost savings, consumer cost savings, accident reductions, improved mobility for non-drivers, energy conservation, pollution reductions, and public fitness and health. ...

  • Unfortunately, soon after these first attempts, the designer will find the robot getting stuck on what seem to be innocuous objects or bumps, held captive under a chair or fallen tree trunk, incapable of doing any- thing useful, or with a manipulator that crushes every beer can it tries to pick up. Knowledge of the mechanics of sensors, manipulators, and the concept of mobility will help reduce these problems. This book provides that knowledge with the aid of hundreds of sketches showing drive lay- outs and manipulator geometries and their work envelope.

  • A number of developments have inadvertently exposed the extent to which the accountancy profession had become a major industry and, thus, indirectly invited critical reflection upon the relevance and adequacy of its regulation. Consideration of the three episodes allows us to explore how accountants have responded to the challenge of change and, more specifically, how they have sought to address and neutralise the threat to the image of themselves (and associated material benefits) as responsible, independent professionals.

  • There are no steadfast rules or Department of State regulations that state that an EFM of a diplomat operating a business for the exclusive use of other diplomats is exempt from local business start-up policies, including registration and paying local taxes. However, since both the owner/operator of the business and all clients or customers have diplomatic status, the logical extension would be that this exemption does exist. Still, be careful in making such an assumption.
