  • We should now develop some intuition before we take up the rigorous development in the next section. The elements ω ∈ Ω are the possible states of nature and one among them, say δ, is the true state of nature. The true state of nature is unknown and controls the outcome of all random experiments. An event A ∈ F occurs or does not occur according as δ ∈ A or δ ∈ A, that is, according as the random variable 1A assumes the value one or zero at δ. To gain information about the true state of nature we determine by means of experiments whether...

  • Accordingly, for the purpose of impact assessment, it was decided not to use response functions from daily mortality time-series studies to estimate the excess annual mortality but the change in the long-term mortality rates associated with ambient air pollution. 5 Contrary to the exposure function which is assumed to be the same for all countries, the health outcome frequency (frequency with which a health outcome appears in the population for a defined time span) may differ across countries. These differences may result from a different age structure or from other factors (i.e.

  • The original motivation for writing this book was rather personal. The first author, in the course of his teaching career in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (DPMMS), University of Cambridge, and St John’s College, Cambridge, had many painful experiences when good (or even brilliant) students, who were interested in the subject of mathematics and its applications and who performed well during their first academic year, stumbled or nearly failed in the exams. This led to great frustration, which was very hard to overcome in subsequent undergraduate years.

  • Supervisors, managers and their co-workers seemed to be attending an awful lot of training courses, but this didn’t seem to have the impact on ‘onthe- job’ performance that it needed to have. In fact many managers were disillusioned with much of the training and development activity going on. At the time, most training programmes suffered from a lack of measurable, clearly specified outcomes and measured results. Most training programmes were evaluated on the ‘Did you enjoy it?’ measure, or people sat for a threehour theory exam.

  • Although at that point, the challenges of a potential Pandemic Influenza were not being considered, this risk is now also being addressed by the training. Avian Influenza has continued its march across Europe and remains a serious threat (Revill 2007; Shaikh 2007). In this survey, 91% of senior living (SL) and long term care (LTC) administrators felt ill-prepared to deal with public health emergencies and BT threats. Eighty percent of the respondents reported that their LTC communities did not have any training (either educational or exercise based) for their workforce in this area.

  • The continuity style deliberately sets out to make the camera, camerawork and editing invisible or, at the very least, unobtrusive. The events on screen seem to take place within a world of their own. They look as though they have simply been captured by some kind of unseen observer, who just happened to be watching and recording the action from convenient and suitable positions or angles. This is the key to the continuity style; its ability to tell a story whilst at the same time hiding the storytelling mechanisms themselves. ...

  • The issue of eco-effi ciency has continued to gain prominence in Latin America and the Caribbean. Latin America is the most urbanized region in the world, with approximately 76% of its population living in urban areas. With cities growing so rapidly, the region is at an important crossroads in terms of urban development and its future will depend heavily upon the real, long-term sustainability of urban systems. The adoption of eco- effi ciency as a core urban value will require a thoroughgoing change in the way cities function and develop.

  • With increasing number of cores came the concept of saturation biopsy, a term coined by Stewart et al. (Stewart et al., 2001), in which 20 or more systematic cores were taken. Djavan et al. developed tables to recommend more cores for larger glands, but these met with little clinical acceptance (Djavan et al., 1999). These saturation biopsies have been offered to those who have had previous negative biopsies but continue to have clinical suspicion for prostate cancer.

  • As with any risk that threatens the viability of business operations, continuity planning is critical. All businesses will be affected by an influenza pandemic. In addition to the threat to human health, the economic impacts of a pandemic, including absenteeism in the workplace or the downstream effects stemming from supply-chain and travel disruption, will be significant and widespread. All businesses should take immediate steps to develop continuity plans that protect employees, minimize disruptions, and contain negative impacts on customers, the economy, and local communities.

  • What makes Russia’s ascendance so surprising is that on almost all indicators of power – soft and hard - the European Union continues to outrank Russia, by some measures even more than in the 1990s. The EU’s combined economy is almost 15 times the size of Russia’s. Even with all the oil wealth, Russia’s GDP is barely as big as Belgium’s and the Netherlands’ combined. 1 The EU’s population is three and a half times the size of Russia’s; its military spending is seven times bigger 2 ; the EU has five seats on the UN Security Council (of which two...

  • The maxillary sinus continues to grow until eruption of the permanent teeth (4). The adult sinus is variable in its extension, in one-half of cases extending into the alveolar process forming an alveolar recess. In these instances the sinus comes in close proximity to the roots of the maxillary posterior teeth. With the loss of posterior teeth, the sinus can extend further into the alveolar bone, even reaching the alveolar ridge occasionally (4).

  • Other studies, primarily with laboratory animals, suggest that the chemical composition5 and surface areas of the particles may be more important than particle mass. Scientists are continuing to study the health effects of particles and are developing better methods for measuring the important constituents. It may be possible in the near future to more accurately assess the effects of inhaled particles on human health. Nitrogen Oxides Nitrogen oxides are produced during most combustion processes. Mobile sources and power plants are the major contributors in Southern California.

  • Pollution from motor vehicle emissions in Switzerland will continue to decline over the next 25 years despite a projected increase in number of vehicles on the road, according to a forecast issued by Switzerland's environment agency Sept. 3. The study by the Swiss Federal Office for Environment, Forests, and Landscape nevertheless warns that the projected decrease in emissions is less than earlier estimates, prompting the need to examine additional pollution-control measures.

  • In almost all societies men and women differ in their daily tasks, in access and control over resources, and in participation in decisionmaking. In fact, discrimination by gender is likely to diminish the efficiency and impact of projects. It is essential therefore to analyse the potential impact of an intervention on men, women and other groups (eg. children, ethnic minorities, social groups) before important decisions are made on the intervention, its objectives, strategies and resource allocation....
