  • Providers who agreed to participate and scheduled an interview were sent a consent form for the study and a baseline questionnaire (on services provided, type of clinical staff employed, and number of WHP clients served) by email or fax to be returned to the interviewers. The phone interviews lasted approximately 20-30 minutes each, were conducted by 2 researchers in order for one to take notes, and were based upon interview guides developed for PPFA providers and non-PPFA providers.

  • Similarly to retroviral vectors, the design of lentiviral vector packaging systems has evolved to minimize the risk of RCPs generation towards maximum safety. Currently, three generations of lentiviral vectors are considered. The first-generation (Naldini et al. 1996) closely resembles the three plasmid packaging system of simple retroviruses, except for the fact that the gag-pol expression is driven by a heterologous promoter instead of the viral LTR; additionally, the gp120 HIV-1’s envelope was replaced by VSV-G’s.

  • Even as new species are evolving, however, others may become extinct. The rate at which species become extinct may be low in one lineage and high in another. It’s also possible for the rate of extinction to rise, only to drop again later. All of these processes can also unfold at the same time, and so the range of possible long-term patterns in evolution can be enormous. A lineage with a low rate of speciation may end up enormously diverse because its rate of extinction is even lower.

  • In the past it has been postulated that the metabolism of hump fat could supply water to the fluid compartments when the camel is water deprived. While water is a by-product of carbohydrate and fat metabolism, it is now known that the act of gaining the oxygen required would cause the loss of more water than would be gained. Also, cellular metabolism creates heat and the camel’s survival strategy, especially during periods of water deprivation, is to reduce metabolic rate and hence heat production and water loss.

  • The first time a money market fund broke the buck was in 1994, when the Denver-based Community Banker’s U.S. GovernmentMoney Market Fund reported aNAVof $0.96. It had themisfortune of owning securities that fell sharply in value during the rapid rise in interest rates that year. Because this was a small fund held by a small number of institutional shareholders, the impact was limited. It wasn’t until the credit crisis of 2008 hit that a fund broke the buck in a dramatic way. This was the Reserve Primary Fund—the first money market fund in the United States.

  • The battle for the clouds between these companies is going to reshape the ICT market structure as PC distribution did in the 80s. But according to the Economist (2008): cloud computing is unlikely to bring about quite such a dramatic shift. In essence, what it does is take the idea of distributed computing a step farther. Still, it will add a couple of lay- ers to the IT stack. One is made up of the cloud providers, such as Amazon and Google.

  • We believe that the findings of this report are highly significant in addressing that challenge. A move across the global fleet towards far better fuel economy at a scale which is already technically achievable, could save over six billion barrels of oil per year by 2050, and cut close to half of CO2 emissions from cars, as well as generate significant local air pollution benefits - and all using existing, cost-effective technologies. This is simply too good to ignore.

  • Some 88% of U.S. adults own a cell phone of some kind as of April 2012, and more than half of these cell owners (55%) use their phone to go online. We call these individuals “cell internet users” throughout this report, and this represents a notable increase from the 31% of cell owners who said that they used their phone to go online as recently as April 2009. Moreover, 31% of these current cell internet users say that they mostly go online using their cell phone, and not using some other device such as a desktop or laptop computer. That works...

  • For more than one decade forestry activities have been implemented under a series of national forest development programs, most recently the ‘661 Program’ and its predecessor, the 327 Program. In Phong Dien district, the 661 Program is managed by Phong Dien Forest Enterprise and the management board of Bo River Watershed Protection Forest (Le Trong Trai et al. 2001). The main forestry activities focused on ‘afforesting’ bare lands and degraded areas, and establishing forest plantations.

  • As a human-generated and worldwide process, global climate change is a qual- itatively distinct and very significant addition to the spectrum of environmental health hazards encountered by humankind. Historically, environmental health concerns have focused on toxicological or microbiological risks to health from local exposures. However, the scale of environmental health problems is increas- ing and various larger-scale environmental hazards to human population health have begun to appear.

  • Several effects have already been shown in animals. Among these, toxic effects have been identified in several organs (heart, lungs, kidneys, reproductive system…), as well as genotoxicity and cytotoxicity. For example, some particles cause granulomas, fibrosis and tumoural reactions in the lungs. Thus, titanium dioxide, a substance recognized as having low toxicity, shows high pulmonary toxicity on the nano-scale in some studies and no or almost no effects in other studies.

  • Automation is also important to replace the skilled workers. Welding is one of the most important jobs in shipyards, and the ratio of the mechanized welding in Japanese shipyards is 42% in average, and 64% in the most advanced shipyard (Miyazaki 2008). Further development of mechanized welding calls for a breakthrough. Miyazaki (2008) showed some challenges such as mechanized welding inside the double hull structure in the assembly stage, and mechanized butt welding of longitudinals inside the double hull structure in the erection stage.

  • Market concentration can be measured by looking at the share of market capitalization accounted for by the large stocks. These large stocks are seen as the leading 3 to 5 firms in the market (Maunder et al. 1991). In many economies only a few companies dominate the stock market (Bundoo 1999). High concentration is not desirable as it can adversely affect liquidity, as it is common to find a negative correlation between concentration and liquidity. Table 5 shows the market concentration percentages.

  • A further concern is the wide level of variation in the number of students being commissioned across the UK. For example, in midwifery, some institutions are facing a 50% cut and yet others are being asked to substantially increase the number of new midwives they are preparing. In the UK, health professional education for individual non-medical courses is funded through a benchmark price, which is determined at the national level.

  • Anemia levels were determined by measuring the level of hemoglobin in the blood, a decreased concentration characterizes anemia. The concentration of hemoglobin in the blood was measured in the field using the HemoCue system. The HemoCue instrument is a special purpose photometer designed specifically for the determination of hemoglobin levels. A capillary blood sample was taken from the palm side of the end of a finger, punctured with a sterile, non-reusable, self-retractable lancet.

  • There’s no real conservation inside their buildings, no removal of materials of concern, no forethought on product recyclability. If you are really going to be green, you consider the entire lifecycle of your operation. It has to be part of your culture to find every opportunity to reduce or eliminate your impact. In our business, we are seeing these barriers falling fast. Two years ago, companies felt they had time to study options and decide to act…or not. Now, the “do nothing” or “business-as-usual” approach has become unacceptable to their stakeholders.

  • The conditions in which women and children are born, grow up, live and work have a major impact on their health. Efforts to improve health must be closely linked to those intended to tackle poverty and malnutrition, improve access to education, ensure gender equity and empowerment, tackle major diseases, and improve access to safe drinking water, adequate sanitation and a clean, safe environment. Integrating the care of women and children with other services is an efficient and cost-effective route to success.
