  • Views on ‘accountability’ need to place greater emphasis on (i) accountability for results (not only expenditure targets or activities undertaken), and (ii) accountability to local partners, including targeted beneficiaries, rather than only to donor ‘audit’ requirements. Related to this point, attitudes about ‘who is in control’ need to give greater appreciation to the importance of local ownership, and the practical ways in which this can be supported.

  • Data is increasingly generated by instruments that monitor the environment – telescopes looking at the heavens, DNA sequenc- ers decoding molecules, bar-code readers watching passing freight-cars, patient monitors watching the life-signs of a person in the emergency room, cell-phone and credit-card systems look- ing for fraud, RFID scanners watching products flow through the supply chain, and smart-dust sensing its environment. In each of these cases, one wants to compare...

  • Soft dents or ripples can be repaired easily, but if the damage has resulted in gouges or sharp creases anywhere on the panel this will have caused the metalwork to stretch, subsequently involving a lot more work to restore the panel to its original contours. The damaged area almost always extends well beyond the obvious dents, with a slightly shallow `extension' to the damage. Depending on the access and clearance behind the damaged area, use a metal or wooden panel block under the panel supporting the deepest parts of the damage. Using a light hammer tap around the edges...

  • For many companies, social media use is still viewed as an experiment, where discrete projects are launched, usually by a few individuals in marketing or communications. Some said they limit their activities because they are in a “test” mode and lack resources to do more. Others said the organizations are wary because they perceive dangers in exposure and lack of control of the conversation on the Web. “Social media is a big ocean and we are pulling in a little bay where we are more protected,” said a global partner in a health and benefits consulting company.

As already mentioned, this report focuses on qualitative criteria and suspension levels. It is not intended to provide a template for quality assurance programmes.

  • America’s modern culture is unavoidably and irreversibly immersed in the media. Men, Women, grandmothers, teenagers, even children are subject to the powerful influence of media today. As Americans, we are subject to an abounding atmosphere of subliminal messages and culturally strive to be like those we see on television, in the movies, and walking down the streets of Hollywood. It is vital to realize in our hustle-bustle lives that a billboard with a favorite celebrity sprawled across it does not deserve respect and extensive praise.

Finally, we improve upon the matched-pair analysis employed in several prior studies by using the matching estimator methodology of Abadie and Imbens (2006).

  • Across the four investment categories, the F DR among the worst funds is always inferior to 50 percent and increases slowly as the significant level rises. It means that the majority of worst funds truly yield negative alphas and that the latter are largely spread in the left tail of the alpha distribution. The F DR among the best funds is generally much higher than the F DR among the worst funds. For All and G funds, the F DR is always higher than 50 percent, while it amounts to 100 percent for the GI funds. The only exception comes from the AG funds. Its low F...

  • Since the mid 1990s there has been a significant growth in the aggregate size and number of global property funds, largely fuelled by the investment of significant capital from institutional investors. This falls into two broad types: the 'core' universe and the 'opportunity' universe. This growth has seen fund managers launching new funds and raising more capital at a time when many have been unable to show clear evidence that their funds have provided historic out-performance against market benchmarks or performance objectives.

  • The ecosystem of the lake is under threat due to the rise in human population density leading to intensive irrigation, farming, land subdivision, and intensive use of agro- chemicals and deforestation around the lake. The growth of the township has also led to more runoff, siltation and nutrients being discharged into the lake via inflowing rivers and drainage channels along roads and the other infrastructure. Inadequately treated effluents from the ton's sewage treatment plan are also finding their way into the lake.

  • With Denmark’s entry into the Schengen agreement, the area at the root of Pier C was enlarged with this beautiful building by the architects Holm & Grut, who also designed the airport’s award-winning Pier A. The new building comprises two spacious floors and a balcony that gives the most spectacular experience of daylight. An elliptical section of the upper part of the roof has been cut out and replaced with glass, resembling a ship in the water from the vantage point of the floor. Quite how to interpret it is left to the individual.

  • With each round of testing, different concerns emerged. Testing allowed the notice to evolve from initial designs that did not provide appropriate content to later designs that better matched participant needs and expectations. Each round of testing allowed us to correct design issues or problems in content presentation. The revisions, based on the results of each round of testing, progressively improved the design and content of the prototype. As a result, all final content and design decisions represent an evolution generated from the testing results.

[Sec02] stippled images at interactive rates by choosing textures of dots to match the tone. A second much slower method was also presented that produced better quality stippling.

Terrorism and sectarian instability are actively advanced by both non- state actors and regional players.
