  • Sensitive skin is becoming a common clinical condition that dermatologists should be prepared to recognize, understand, and treat. Subjects experiencing this condition report exaggerated reactions when their skin is in contact with cosmetics, soaps, and other substances, and they often report worsening after exposure to dry and cold climates. Sensitive skin and subjective irritation are widespread in western countries, but still far from being completely defined and understood.

  • This study was designed to describe the radiological findings of extensively drug-resistant (XDR) pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) and to compare the observed findings with findings of drug-sensitive (DS) and non-XDR multidrug- resistant (MDR) TB in non-AIDS patients. Materials and Methods: From September 1994 to December 2007, 53 MDR TB patients (M:F = 32:21; mean age, 38 years) and 15 XDR TB non-AIDS patients (M:F = 8:7; mean age, 36 years) were enrolled in the study. All of the MDR TB patients had received no treatment or less than one month of anti-TB treatment.

  • Greenhouse gases are accumulating in Earth’s atmosphere as a result of human activities, causing surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures to rise. Temperatures are, in fact, rising. The changes observed over the last several decades are likely mostly due to human activities, but we cannot rule out that some significant part of these changes is also a reflection of natural variability. Human-induced warming and associated sea level rises are expected to continue through the 21st century.

  • The historic character of the landscape shouldtherefore be considered alongside other aspects ofcharacter and visual and aesthetic issues when framingplanning policies or determining individual applications,and landscape capacity and sensitivity analyses shouldalways include the historic dimension.Where localauthorities have completed an appraisal of this historic dimension of the landscape as part of theEnglish Heritage-sponsored Historic LandscapeCharacterisation programme,this appraisal should be incorporated in the overall assessment of landscape impact.

  • While the evidence documents significant use of accounting numbers in determining cash compensation, both the determinants of cash compensation and the importance of cash compensation in the overall incentive package exhibit significant time trends. Bushman, Engel, Milliron, and Smith (1998) document that over the 1971-95 period, firms have substituted away from accounting earnings toward other information in determining top executives’ cash compensation.

  • All these new layers, devices and traffic require management and protection just as they would if they were physical machines and networks. But what do auditors need to know in order to successfully locate and ensure secure processes around sensitive data traversing this new vir- tual environment? Unfortunately, at this early stage of adoption, there is little guidance within the regulatory frameworks on how to address new audit issues presented with virtualization. The purpose of this paper is to help IT managers and auditors...

  • While the intentions of over-involved helicopter parents are generally benevolent, such intervention can negatively impact their student’s chances of admission. Graduate school admissions officers are be- coming increasingly sensitive to how well an applicant has defined his or her career goals and reasons for wanting to attend business school separate from those of their parents, and when parents lead their child through the application process, this lack of introspec- tion often emerges in the applicant’s admissions essays or evaluative interview.

  • Such an approach, however, is fraught with security risks: without proper protection in place, one’s sensitive information can be exposed to unintended par- ties on the same system. This threat is often dealt with by an access controlmechanism that confines each user’s activities to her compartment. As an example, programs running in a user’s account are typically not allowed to touch the data in another account without the permission of the owner of that account.

  • By inadvertently increasing the concentration of energy-trapping gases in the lower atmosphere, human actions have begun to amplify Earth’s natural green- house effect. The primary challenge facing the world community is to achieve sufficient reduction in greenhouse gas emissions so as to avoid dangerous inter- ference in the climate system. National governments, via the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), are committed in principle to seeking this outcome.

  • Human activities are affecting the global environment in myriad ways, with numerous direct and indirect effects on ecosystems. The climate and atmospheric composition of Earth are changing rapidly. Humans have directly modified half of the ice-free terrestrial surface and use 40% of terrestrial production. Our actions are causing the sixth major extinction event in the history of life on Earth and are radically modifying the interactions among forests, fields, streams, and oceans.

Seilacher, Tübingen and YaleIn various periods throughout the younger earth history comparable changes in climate occurred globally and simultaneously. Such global events can be recon- structed with the help of reliefs, sediments and palaeosoils and their specific mor- phological, chemical and mineralogical properties. Desert margins represent inter- sections between arid and humid ecosystems.

  • Climate impacts were monetized using estimates of the social cost of carbon—the valuation of the damages due to emissions of one metric ton of car- bon, of $30/ton of CO2equivalent (CO2e), 20 with low and high estimates of $10/ton and $100/ton. There is uncertainty around the total cost of climate change and its present value, thus uncertainty con- cerning the social cost of carbon derived from the total costs.
