Examples of such organisational factors include the significant changes to the management of
organ donation services made in recent years, with the aim of ensuring that whenever a person
dies in circumstances where organ donation is a possibility, this possibility may be raised with
Despite the prominence of gender issues in the IADGs, effectiveness of development cooperation has not focussed
enough on outcomes of gender equality and women’s rights in terms of either the inclusion of indicators tracking the
focus of development cooperation on gender equality or the participation of women’s organisations in initiatives to hold
actors to account. 2012 analysis conducted for the DCF shows that aid/partnership policies, targets and mutual
accountability processes do not focus adequately on the gender impact of development cooperation.
As the market leader in digital signage, NEC offers a large selection of
powerful digital signage solutions that can provide reliable outstanding
images over long periods of use.
Digital Signage can serve several purposes such as informing, entertaining
or providing a purchasing incentive. For instance, a public display with
tantalising content placed above a concession stand can boost sales of
popcorn, cola and other items.
The above theoretical discussions have been useful in clarifying that one needs
to use a basic epidemiological approach in thinking about the relationship between
trends in different aspects of health. Mortality is a dynamic process that removes
people from the population at a faster or slower rate over time. The number or proportion
of people who are not healthy in a population is an indicator of population
health—or a stock measure—at a point in time.
In a 2007 research paper for the SBA, Erin Kepler and Scott Shane found that 14
percent of the women entrepreneurs in their sample had employer firms, versus nearly
22 percent of the men. The Kauffman Firm Survey (KFS) found higher rates for both
genders, perhaps because it is drawn from the Dun & Bradstreet database, which
includes only young firms that are ―serious‖ enough to merit a credit report. But here
again, a gap was found: Of the firms owned solely or primarily by women, 36 percent
were employer firms, versus 44 percent for those owned solely or primarily...
Eligibility criteria for setting up a branch or liaison office center on the track record and net worth
of the foreign head office. For a branch, the head office must have a profit-making track record in
its home country during the immediately preceding five financial years (three years for a liaison
office). The net worth of the foreign head office cannot be less than USD 100,000 or its
equivalent to establish a branch (USD 50,000 or its equivalent to establish a liaison office).
Atmospheric pollution and climate change present major threats to biodiversity, both
globally and within the UK. National and regional governments have commitments to
address these issues. Responding to the threats posed by air pollution and climate change
requires an understanding of the nature and extent of their impacts. Monitoring allows
changes in biodiversity to be detected and quantified and therefore provides objective
evidence on which to develop scientific understanding, policy and management
The Government has established NBN Co to design, build and operate a broadband network that
satisfies the four objectives laid out in Sub-Section 1.2.1, Key Objectives.
It is NBN Co’s understanding that once the NBN is available the Government will want to pursue the
achievement of public policy objectives in the areas of healthcare, education, aged care and other
areas, as deemed appropriate by Government. These additional services and policy objectives are
not part of NBN Co’s remit and hence, do not form part of NBN Co’s Corporate Plan.
There is consistent evidence from a large number of studies that brief intervention in primary care
can reduce total alcohol consumption and episodes of binge drinking in hazardous drinkers, for
periods lasting up to a year. There is limited evidence that this effect may be sustained for longer
periods. All groups under study reduced alcohol consumption, but those with brief interventions
did so to a greater extent than those in control groups.
“Exporting My Products/Services” is the least important problem to small business
owners, essentially unchanged from when it first entered the survey in 1986. Even with
federal and state/local programs to promote exporting, small business owners show little
interest. Most small businesses are local. Their market is the town or community in which
their business is located and the immediate environs. Growth means expanding to the re-
gion, not going overseas. Plus, the economy has been strong. There is plenty of business, if
not locally, then somewhere in the United States.
The best breed of waterfowl to raise depends on several factors, including the reason for raising them
and the amount of space available.
Ducks are small and require less space than geese. However, they need a year round grain supplement
and are more prone to predators. Geese require twice as much space as ducks, but do well on limited
grain when they have plenty of grazing space. They are seldom bothered by predators.
Some waterfowl are raised for meat. They can be purchased from a commercial hatchery or local feed
store. Duck breeds favored for meat production...
The purpose of this paper is to support faculty of schools of public health/public health programs
(SPH/PHP) as they consider approaches and make decisions for competency-based program
planning and curriculum development.
This document is provided for assistance and does not intend to prescribe a process for
curriculum development. It will provide an introduction to the concepts and references to
support continued examination of these issues.
Teaching about literacy and numeracy, involves many learning experiences over all the years of schooling.
The time allocated to these areas and others such as science, historical and social studies, culture and the
arts etc., is always in excess of the time available for health. Simply, there is very little time in the curriculum
to achieve many of the educational goals of health education, let alone the wishes of the health sector for
the adoption of practices conducive to better health.
Oral health professionals should be aware of hypertensive disorders because of increased risk of bleeding during procedures and should consult with the prenatal care provider before initiating dental procedures in women with uncontrolled severe hypertension. Blood pressure values of greater than or equal to 140/90 mmHg are considered mild hypertension and values greater than or equal to 160/110 mmHg are considered severe hypertension.
Because eating habits developed during childhood have the potential to
last a lifetime, it is important for children to learn about the benefits of
good nutrition. Therefore, the Child Nutrition Act of 1966 views
nutrition education as “a matter of highest priority.”

objectives developed by the U.S.
A distinction is to be made between the terms 'efficacy'
and 'effectiveness'. Efficacy is defined as "the probability
of benefit to individuals in a defined population from a
medical technology applied for a given medical problem
under ideal conditions of use". By contrast, effectiveness is
considered to have all the attributes of efficacy but to
reflect "performance under ordinary conditions by the
average practitioner for the typical patient" .
In recent years, the food and beverage industry in the US has viewed children and adolescents as
a major market force. As a result, children and adolescents are now the target of intense and
specialized food marketing and advertising efforts. Food marketers are interested in youth as
consumers because of their spending power, their purchasing influence, and as future adult
consumers. Multiple techniques and channels are used to reach youth, beginning when they are
toddlers, to foster brand-building and influence food product purchase behavior.
Neighborhoods may influence late-life health through a number of pathways (see Figure 1). The IOM
(1991) disablement framework, which distinguishes among disease, functional limitation, and disability, serves
as the starting point for this framework. We extend the IOM framework to include mortality and self-rated
general health status, which are both influenced by disease, functional limitation, and disability, as well as the
variety of individual and neighborhood factors that influence health in general.
The resource-based view of the firm (RBV) is one of the latest strategic management concepts to be enthusiastically em-braced by marketing scholars. This paper argues that the RBV holds much promise as a framework for understanding stra-tegic marketing issues but cautions that, before it is adopted, it needs to be fully understood. Consequently, the paper charts the development of the RBV from its origins in early economic models of imperfect competition, through the work of evolutionary economists to the contributions of strategy and marketing scholars over the past two decades.
Hence, there is an imperative need to re-engineer Pakistan’s dairy industry; both at farm and processor
level. This paper seeks to investigate the tools that could bring about such change. We believe achieving
the strategic change outlined in this paper for the dairy industry may prove challenging for at least some
