  • The discussion of the properties of relative international prices has been closely tied with a discussion on the nature of the pricing decisions by ¯rms. 5 The observed slow pass-through of exchange rate changes to consumer prices and deviations from the law of one price for traded goods are consistent with prices of imported goods that are sticky in the currency of the consumer (local currency pricing). This pricing mechanism, however, dampens the expenditure-switching e®ect of nominal exchange rate movements.

  • What does a Distributer do? While Distributers are invisible to most consumers their role is to bridge the geographical gap between producer and retailer. Supermarkets and department stores couldn't exist without a complicated distribution system, capable of moving enormous amounts of product from point A – the producer to point C – the consumer. Distributors add significantly to the cost of the products we buy but they deliver a valuable service in providing access to the marketplace so producers can focus their energies on manufacturing the product.

  • The modern organic movement began in Europe around the 1920s, when a group of farmers and consumers sought an alternative to the industrialisation of agriculture. Of key importance to these farmers and consumers was caring for the soil and natural processes upon which agriculture depends, including not using inputs such as artificial fertilisers and synthetic chemicals. A leading figure at the time was the Austrian thinker, Rudolf Steiner, whose ideas led to a system of cultivation known as biodynamic.

  • In under-sampling, instead of using all observations of the majority class to train the model, only a random subset of the majority class is used in addition to the minority class. Training samples of the majority class are randomly eliminated until the ratio of the majority and minority classes reach a preset value, usually close to 1. A disadvantage of under-sampling is that it reduces the data available for training.

  • Water and energy are two critical ingredients of modern civilization. Without clean water, life cannot be sustained. Without energy, we cannot run computers, power homes or manufacture products. As the world’s population grows in number and affluence, demand for both resources is increasing faster than ever, with far-reaching implications for both water scarcity and rising levels of global warming pollution. Woefully underappreciated, however, is the fact that water and energy oftentimes compete with one another.

  • The appeal of horn shapes is not difficult to understand in the field. One quickly learns to appreciate the variety of trained and untrained shapes in a forest of horns in the cattle camp. Both the symmetrical and the asymmetrical curving shapes of Nilotic cattle horns have great visual appeal, especially when they are seen moving through space as the cattle move their heads, and when the arcs the horns make in the air are exaggerated by the swinging movements of the tassels. Fagg (e.g. 1973) has drawn attention to the frequent use of exponential curves in African art:...

  • The Art of Public Speaking accepted it, body unchanged−−it is the word tempo, and means rate of movement, as measured by the time consumed in executing that movement. Thus far its use has been largely limited to the vocal and musical arts, but it would not be surprising to hear tempo applied to more concrete matters, for it perfectly illustrates the real meaning of the word to say that an ox−cart moves in slow tempo, an express train in a fast tempo. Our guns that fire six hundred times a minute, shoot at a fast tempo; the old muzzle loader...

  • Empirical evidence regarding international relative prices at the consumer level suggests that arbitrage in international markets is not rapid and that these markets are highly segmented.

  • While the resulting American health care model proved a clever way to ensure that the money would roll in from patients, employers, and government, it contained a flaw that is proving fatal. The flaw is that health care consumers have been removed from par- ticipating in decisions regarding their care. Our approach to health insurance ignores the important role consumers play in controlling costs and enhanc- ing quality. Dr. Gorman found that people who pay for their own care cut utilization by 10% to 30% with no discernable effect on health.

  • While – as Hake (2004: 193) has stated – there is still a tendency to estab- lish a discursive dichotomy between consumer culture and the elitist thoughts of avant-garde movements, it should be stressed that both share a common rhetoric of innovation and progress. Furthermore, it was precisely this intel- lectual reflection about the status of art vis-à-vis everyday life that called for a tight bond between the two and led to the goal of an Aesthetisierung des Alltags (aestheticisation of everyday life) in the context of the Weimar Republic....
