  • The evidence base for the insulin secretagogues was more extensive than ascertained for the parent guideline. However, in many of the papers in which they are compared to other drugs they were being used as the comparator therapy rather than the investigated therapy. New evidence did not lead to new conclusions about the role of these drugs in clinical management, either from the point of view of efficacy or safety.

  • Although production costs of organic specialty crops can be higher than conventional production, some organic commodity crops have lower costs of production than the same conventional crops. A recent study of corn and soybean production in Iowa found that organic farms had lower fertilizer and pesticide costs, but higher seed and machinery costs. On the average, the total cost of organic production was slightly lower than that of conventional production.

  • For a more reliable assessment of future performance, the k-fold cross validation [Sto74] is often applied. An advantage of this technique is that all samples in the data set are fully utilized. In a k-fold cross validation, the data is randomly separated into k partitions of equal size. In each of the k runs, (k – 1) partitions are combined to form the training set and the remaining partition is held out as the testing set. This process repeats k times, each time with a different partition of training and testing sets. The average performance of the model...

  • I hate the fact that fans who want to do what readers have always done are expected to play in the same system as all these hotshot agents and lawyers. It's just stupid to say that an elementary school classroom should have to talk to a lawyer at a giant global publisher before they put on a play based on one of my books. It's ridiculous to say that people who want to “loan” their electronic copy of my book to a friend need to get a license to do so. Loaning books has been around longer than any publisher on Earth, and it's a...

  • This paper investigates the commonly held belief that government spending is normally financed through a combination of taxes and bond sales. The argument is a technical one and requires a detailed analysis of reserve accounting at the central bank. After carefully considering the complexities of reserve accounting, it is argued that the proceeds from taxation and bond sales are technically incapable of financing government spending and that modern governments actually finance all of their spending through the direct creation of high-powered money.

  • The subjects then used an online system to perform the experimental task. A copy of the text specification with the example diagram was placed in front of the computer for easy reference, and the UML experimental diagrams were presented in random order for each subject. The subjects gave a yes/no response to each presented diagram, indicating whether they thought the diagram matched the specification or not: two keys on the keyboard were used for this input. 16 practice diagrams (randomly selected from the 21 experimental diagrams) were presented first.

  • One of the main problems when analysing the impact of remittances on development is the lack of full and reliable information on the volume, destination and use of this economic flow. The lack of information also limits the proposals for action that can be made by the Public Administration. Hence, we should start by improving data collection systems on remittances. On the one hand, we need to have a more precise image of the proportion of their savings that immigrants are sending to their countries of origin and analyse the factors that influence the frequency and volume...

  • We show that the main testable implication of the buffer stock model is that the covariance between the wealth gap (the difference between actual and target wealth) and consumption is (strongly) positive. Although we focus on Carroll’s version of the buffer stock model, the test applies equally well to Deaton’s case. In Carroll, buffer stock behavior emerges from the tension between impatience, prudence, and the chance of zero earnings. Impatient individuals would like to anticipate consumption, but the chance of zero future earnings generates a demand for wealth.

  • Over the years, the EITC has played different tax policy, labor market, and antipoverty roles. In section 3.2, we review the political history of the EITC, its rules, and its goals, and we provide a broad set of program sta- tistics that summarize its growth and coverage. Various goals of the pro- gram occasionally come into conflict. For example, when the EITC was in- creased as part of the 1993 budget bill, it was singled out as an important antipoverty program that has positive (relative to alternatives) labor mar- ket incentives.

  • In regard to 3D modeling, there are three primary operations: addition, subtraction, and intersection. In order to create a boolean object, you first need two other objects. They can be primitves or other meshes. They also need to intersect in 3D space. If you do addition, the resulting object will be the sum of the two initial objects. It will look as if the two were welded. If substration is what you are doing, the second object get subtracted from the first one. A hole in the shape of the second object is created in the first one. All the space that was occupied by both of...

  • In addition to banks, other financial institutions issue significant amounts of preferred stocks. For example, in 2007 Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae raised $13 billion through two preferred stocks offerings. Similar to banks, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have capital requirements that make preferred stocks an attractive source of capital. The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), which regulates Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, requires them to maintain a level of “core capital,” comprised of common stock, retained earnings, and perpetual, non-cumulative preferred stock.

  • In Figure 1, we plot the ratio of economy-wide after-tax corporate profits to GNP. These data are available in the Survey of Current Business National Income and Product Accounts (NIPA) for 1929 and after (U.S. Commerce 1929—2000). Prior to 1929, we apply the methodology of the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) to construct our own measures of after-tax corporate profits. (See U.S. Commerce 1985 and our Data Appendix for details.) The results are in Table 1. In 1929, the BEA reports after-tax profits equal to 8.8 percent of GNP.
