  • The price of cinema was probably an important factor for the kind of audience it interested. Before the Nickelodeon prices varied, from a dollar or more for the first special Lumière events, to a few cents to fifty cents for a travelling showman (Musser 1990: 299). But in general, the market was in too turbulent a condition to put a reliable average price on motion picture watching. This even harder because they were often part of live entertainment. The prices the Nickelodeon charged were between five and ten cents, which often enabled the spectator to stay...

  • The use of industrially manufactured nitrogen (N) fertilizers increased rapidly in developed countries between 1960 and 1980. This facilitated a large increase in the production of feed and food grains (maize, wheat, and rice) per unit of cultivated land, but in some regions it also contributed to enrichment of surface and groundwater with various forms of nitrogen. Fertilizer, however, is not the only source of nitrogen that can cause contamination of surface waters.

  • It must be noted that on 12 July 2010 the Commission proposed the extension of investor compensation schemes to cover investors in UCITS. The amendments to Directive 97/9/EC aimed to cover situations where a depositary is liable for the loss of assets of UCITS but is not able to cover its liabilities. This should serve as an additional means to increase the protection for investors in UCITS. However, at this stage this proposal has not been accepted by the Council and is subject to further negotiations.

  • Our goal is to study a broad sample of countries. We gather reliable data for 55 nations and measure the size of each country’s mutual fund industry relative to the country’s assets in “primary” domestic securities (which includes equities, bonds, and bank loans) that are available to prospective investors. For completeness, we also report the size of national fund industry assets relative to the country’s GDP and population. We study the industry as a whole, and equity and bond funds separately, because certain hypotheses apply only to one of the two subsectors. ...

  • The topic of “risk” and what financial services firms are doing to manage or oversee risk has received heightened attention in recent years. The market events of 2007–2009 prompted many firms to take a fresh look at their practices and resources and to incorporate any lessons learned from their own or others’ experience. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has also focused attention on risk oversight practices by requiring companies, including funds, to disclose the board’s risk oversight role.

  • Regardless of the motivation, sponsor behavior observed through these support instances suggests that while the costs can be significant, the perceived benefits at the time of support were greater to most fund sponsors. Understanding both the significance to the sponsor and their motivations would be important in making judgments as to whether investors should reasonably expect this model to continue, as it is possible that the sponsor value proposition could shift, especially where necessary support amounts are large. ...

  • Leadership is one of the most important and essential factors in good project management. Leadership can be seen as the art of influencing others to achieve desired results. Leaders guide behaviors by setting the vision, direction and the key processes; in other words, leadership has a large influence on the whole project process, including the actions of others. Jack Welch, previous CEO of General Electric, is reported to have called his direct reports together one day and issued a three word dictum: “Don’t manage! Lead!”(Slater, 1998).

  • Since each retailer has a monopoly power through the captive consumers, the strategies employed in the oligopolistic equilibrium depend on the pricing behavior of a hyphotetical monopolist facing the captive consumers. Before proceeding to solving the oligopoly model we will illustrate the optimal behavior of the consumers facing any price pair and, subsequently, pro t-maximizing strategy of the monopolist.

  • The dilemma every regional leadership team must resolve is how to select those investments projects most likely to spur growth in areas that will produce the desired outcomes for the region in the long-term. This is no small feat, since the leadership team must weigh the likely returns with associated risks, as well as questions of equity (“Are we investing to benefit the entire region or just a part of it?”). The Guidelines for Regional Investment Decisions help a region prioritize investments through guided, focused discussions within the leadership team.

  • The polynomials Pn(x) are what we need. Indeed, let α vary over [0,π]. Then nα varies over [0,nπ], and the functions x =2cos α and Pn(x)=2cos nα range over the segment [−2, 2]. Moreover, x covers this segment exactly once, while Pn(x)coversit n times, assuming alternating values ±2for x = arccos(kπ/n),k = 0,...,n. This means that the graph of the polynomial Pn(x) lies in the strip |y|≤ 2 and contains n + 1 points of its alternating boundaries. Let us summarize: there is a unique monic polynomial of degree n, given by (7.

  • Facilitating access is concerned with assisting people to command appropriate health care resources in order to improve or preserve their well-being. If services are available, then a population may ‘have access’ to health care provision. The extent to which access is gained can depend on administrative, political, social and cultural factors and barriers. The services available must be relevant and effective if people are to gain access to improved health outcomes.

  • Project managers often run into problems because they try to assign tasks rather than areas of responsibility. In the belief that a highly structured, organized form of management is the only key to project success, they may overlook the need of team members to be given a share of the job, instead of just being told what to do. Scheduling and the giving out of assignments cannot be separated from one another. They are part of the same process of defining areas of responsibility. The person who is given responsibility for a range of duties may be told what to do; or he or she...

  • Industries with identified critical infrastructures should have full and complete participation in the development of cybersecurity standards and best practices. Any standards should be performance-based rather than technology-based to ensure that they are not out-paced by the advancement of technology. Owners and operators know best how to protect their own systems, and it is nearly impossible for the speed of bureaucracy to keep pace with ever changing threats.

When dealing with customers who are blind or have low vision, those who are deaf or hard of hearing, or those who have speech disabilities, many business owners and employees are not sure what to do. The ADA requires businesses to take steps necessary to communicate effectively with customers with vision, hearing, and speech disabilities. Because the nature of communications differs from business to business, the rules allow for flexibility in determining effective communication solutions.
