  • One might expect the e ects on buyers and suppliers to be symmetric: for both the current owner and a potential buyer of a particular used car, the increased cost of usage for the current owner of that car if he or she keeps the car will exactly equal the increased cost of usage for the potential buyer, if the two have similar driving habits. In other words, one might expect an increase in gasoline prices to reduce the willingness-to-pay for a particular car by about the same amount that it reduces a potential supplier's willingness-to-accept for that car.

  • Such a criticism of course applies with particular force to the US Federal Reserve since, in addition to their monetary responsibilities, they are also the regulator of US bank holding companies. They need to explain why they were not more forceful and effective in getting banks under their charge to reduce the concentration risk associated with large holdings of both unsecuritized and securitized mortgages and other asset-backed securities. 10 Reform of Wall Street compensation plans has been discussed for some time, going back well before this crisis.

  • The next chapter presents an analytical solution for a nano-plate with Levy boundary conditions. The free vibration analysis is based on a first order shear deformation theory which includes the small scale effect. The governing equations of motion, reformulated as two new equations called the edge-zone and interior equations, are based on the nonlocal constitutive equations of Eringen.

  • Due to a variety of factors, more and more companies are being forced to continuously cut costs, boost productivity, and struggle for success. Although their mandate might be to im- prove sales, the resources available to do this are being cut. For companies in this situation, the telephone can become a useful tool. For individuals, a career as a telemarketer can be long- lasting and highly lucrative, especially once you perfect your skills, gain experience, and develop a track record.

  • As far as the relationship of generation of each of the five elements is concerned, it is composed of two aspects--promoting and being promoted. The element that promotes is called the mother, while the element that is promoted is called the child. Hence, the relation of promoting and being promoted among the five elements is also known as that of mother and child. Take fire for example, since fire produces earth, it is called the mother of earth; on the other hand it is produced by wood, so it is called the child of wood. Restriction connotes bringing under control or restraint.

  • Nutrition is an important lifestyle factor that contributes to our general feeling well. Recently, it has even further suggested, based on a number of epidemiological studies, that our diet is also associated with the risk of developing a number of chronic diseases, such as diabetes type II, cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, many types of cancer, just to name few. Thus, a balanced nutrition is firmly interwoven with many aspects of our long-term health, including the prevention of diseases, albeit this is typically rather associated with the medicinal areas.

  • Impoverishing the local resource base can impoverish wider areas: deforestation by highland farmers causes flooding on lowland farms; factory pollution robs local fishermen of their catch. Such grim local cycles now operate nationally and regionally. Dryland degradation sends environmental refugees in their millions across national borders. Deforestation in Latin America and Asia is causing more floods, and more destructive floods, in downhill, downstream nations. Acid precipitation and nuclear fallout have spread across the borders of Europe.

Smaller areas of production are found throughout the state, and lettuce is also grown year-round in most home and community gardens. Hawaii's commercial production decreased by more than 35 percent over the past few years due to the tomato spotted wilt virus, a devastating, thrips-trans- mitted disease.

  • Further, Fich and Shivdasani (2006) find that firms with a majority of their outside directors serving on three or more boards have lower profitability. Thus busy non- executive directors may be over-committed and therefore unable to fulfil the role of effective monitors. In addition, Vafeas (2003) reports that longer outside director tenure adversely affects firm performance. Hwang and Kim (2009) find that the existence of substantial social ties between outside directors and top management diminishes the effectiveness of the monitoring role of non-executive directors. ...

  • Roe v. Wade stands as a milestone to women’s freedom and equality, and one of its most fundamental tenets is that a woman’s health must always be protected. Yet 39 years after the Supreme Court recognized the right to choose and the vital importance of women’s health, 1 attacks on women’s privacy, and on health protections in particular, continue. Time after time, anti-choice lawmakers vote down proposed health exceptions to abortion restrictions, 2 and prominent anti-choice leaders openly state their opposition to protecting women’s health.

  • An estimated 1.5 million deaths occur annually as a result of household air pollution from SFU mainly for cooking as well as winter season heating. The total disease burden, including morbidity, is estimated at 36 million DALYs (WHO 2007). 3 These deaths and DALYs arise mainly from acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI) in young children and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in adults, and to a lesser extent lung cancer. There is also moderate evidence of increased risk of asthma, cataracts and tuberculosis (Desai et al, 2004; Smith et al, 2004).

  • The presence or lack of these five factors was the determinant of the role of religion in the given conflict. Due to the nature of this methodology these are debateable findings. For instance one leader may declare simply ‘May God bless us and watch over us’ whereas another may declare that ‘God calls us, his chosen people, to annihilate our enemies’. Both are employing a religious discourse yet there is clearly a difference in severity. Measuring this difference is...

  • However, some focus group participants also found the use of electronic music “distracting.” Several students who disliked the use of DJ Spooky’s music accompanying Caligari noted being distracted by the modern drum loops and electronic sounds, claiming that they didn’t “suit” the film. Another student anonymously described having seen the film before, and feeling “far more removed from the film” because of the electronic music: “the experiment created an unconscious focus on where the film and the contemporary DJ track ‘synched’ up.

  • Despite the expertise and ingenuity of U.S. industry and tremendous productiv- ity of U.S. agriculture and forestry, plant-based sources cannot automatically shoulder a major share of our chemical feedstock demand. Today, U.S. industry only makes minor portions of some classes of chemical products from plant-derived materials. Important scientific and commercial development breakthroughs are needed. Petrochemicals, agriculture, forestry, and other industries—as well as government—must make major coordinated efforts to most effectively increase the use of plant-derived chemicals.

  • In the kidney, the Th2-mediated response is characterized by formation of immune complexes and deposition in the glomerulus, which is usually followed by complement activation. On the other hand, the Th1-mediated response is characterized by infiltration of circulating mononuclear cells and crescent formation. Both responses are capable of releasing mediators that are responsible for functional and structural changes as seen in primary glomerular diseases.
