  • Nevertheless for both leisure and business markets, perhaps the most important criterion for selecting to visit or not to visit a destination is its image. Image is the set of expectations and perceptions a prospective traveler has of a destination. Past experience of the destination or the companies involved (i.e. airlines, hotels, tour operators); descriptions by friends and relatives; general information; and marketing campaigns develop these expectations and perception which may be true or imaginary representations. (Baloglu and Brinberg, 1997; Chon,1991 and 1992; Chacko, 1997).

  • Immediately after withdrawing, detach the needle, draw air into the syringe, reattach the needle and express the material in the needle onto a slide. Needle tip is brought into light contact with the slide and the aspirate is carefully expressed without spraying into the air, which can cause air-drying and also can form aerosols, which are potentially infectious. Preparing proper smears is critical for the end results. No matter how expertly the aspiration is performed, if the slides are not interpretable, the procedure is totally worthless for cytologic diagnosis.

Many of them were reprinted and translated into other languages; here I list the first instance of publication in English. Also, it...

  • THE LAVA landscapes in Hawaii's Volcanoes National Park are quite aesthetic- ally stimulating. On a memorable evening, I watched, in the twilight, red lava roll down into the ocean. The seashore on which I stood had literally been made only a few months before. Here was more land flowing forth; I knew something of how the world was made. Next morning, overlooking a dormant crater, steaming with sulphurous fumes, I noticed flowers and a little food. These were offerings made to Pele, a goddess who dwells in Kilauea volcano, placating her to stop the flow.

  • The decision to invest in stocks requires not only an assessment of the risk-return trade-off given the existing data, but also an act of faith (trust) that the data in our possession are reliable, that the overall system is fair. Episodes like the collapse of Enron may change not only the distribution of expected payoffs, but the fundamental trust in the system that delivers those payoffs. Most of us will not enter a three-card game played on the street, even after observing a lot of rounds (and thus getting an estimate of the “true” distribution of payoffs).

  • We provide a critical assessment of the method used by the Cleveland Fed to correct expected inflation derived from index-linked bonds for liquidity and inflation risk premia and show how their method can be adapted to account for time-varying inflation risk premia. Furthermore, we show how sensitive the Cleveland Fed approach is to different measures of the liquidity premium. In addition we propose an alternative approach to decompose the bias in inflation expectations derived from index-linked bonds using a state-space estimation.
