  • Failure to adequately define [sample] support has long been a source of confusion in site characterization and remediation because risk due to long-term exposure may involve areal supports of hundreds or thousands of square meters; removal by backhoe or front-end loader may involve minimum remediation units of 5 or 10 m2; and sample measurements may be taken on soil cores only a few centimeters in diameter. (Englund and Heravi, 1994) The importance of this observation cannot be overstated.

  • Let me begin this preface with a confession of a few of my own biases. First, I believe that theory, and the models that flow from it, should provide us with the tools to understand, analyze and solve problems. The test of a model or theory then should not be based upon its elegance but upon its usefulness in problem solving. Second, there is little in corporate financial theory, in my view, that is new and revolutionary. The core principles of corporate finance are common sense ones, and have changed little over time....

In this study, we found that there are wide spectra of final beneficiaries and intermediaries and concluded that there is no common microfinance business model in Europe. While our findings suggested that the microfinance market is immature and fragmented, they also pointed to its growing importance as a market segment with a potential to counter poverty and unemployment while fostering financial and social inclusion.

  • An output of one step will be the input to another. Some inputs may be sourced from outside the project. These External Inputs (e.g., Standards, Project Initiation report of another project, etc.) must be identified. The project products and external inputs will primarily determine the step dependencies. Define the dependencies, and dependency type, between the steps. Steps within a stage are not necessarily finish-start, but may be in parallel or phased. Stages may also run in parallel with one another. Do not specify dependencies at the stage level.

In addition, the RBZ is disposing of its non-core assets in sectors such as mining, consistent with the RBZ Act.

  • Although the characteristics of emerging markets are relatively diverse, Thailand can represent the rest of the emerging countries, those in Asia in particular. This is because the Thai stock market exhibits several behaviours which are consistent with the average for emerging markets. For example, while the ten-year annualized growth of emerging markets ranged from -0.03% (Taiwan) to 20.45% (India), the Thai stock market grew by 12.36% per year and this figure is comparable to the growth of the MSCI Emerging Markets index 1 , 11.69% (MSCI, 2010).

  • The different sources of potential confounding in time series studies of air pollution and mortality can be broadly classified as either measured or unmeasured. Important measured confounders include weather variables such as temperature and dewpoint temperature. Daily temperature measurements are readily available for metropolitan areas in the USA and numer- ous studies have demonstrated a relationship between temperature and mortality which is gen- erally positive for warm summer days and negative for cold winter days (e.g. Curriero et al. (2002)).

  • The parts from popular older models often are collectively worth more than the intact vehicle. Many of these stolen cars end up in “chop shops,” where they are disassembled for parts sold to unscrupulous or unsuspecting repair shops or parts dealers. Some stolen vehicles are sold on the export market. Older, “classic” American cars are among those most valued overseas. It is estimated that at least 10 percent of automobile theft is a false report of a stolen car; that is, the vehicle has been given up or disposed of to pursue a fraudulent insurance claim. Some...

  • Moving to the new panel, check measurements again before cutting pillars etc. for jointing. At this point it is probably safer to leave a "safety margin" of about 1cm (in the right direction!!) when cutting any mid-panel joints. When the panel is offered up for a trial fit and clamped correctly in place, this overlap can be marked and removed more precisely, or crimped with a flanging tool so that one panel slots under the other. Clean up all surfaces to be welded, drilling spotweld holes in the new panel if required. Refit to the vehicle and adjust so that...

  • Most of the intrinsic discoloration encountered in everyday practice is caused by the breakdown of blood products of the pulp tissue, due to trauma or a traumatic incident (Figure 7-7).This type of discoloration (ie, blood degradation) occurs during hemolysis, when iron is released from hemin, hemosiderin, hematin, and hematoidin.Through the addition of the bacterial product hydrogen sulfide, iron is converted to ferric sulfide, resulting in the discoloration of the tooth.The dental enamel tends to change color either to orange, brown, or dark gray in color (Figure 7-8).

  • Often we mathematicians are inarticulate when challenged to explain why mathematics is such a critical aspect of K - 12 education today. We know it is, but are so involved in the subject that we have not looked at the broader perspective of the way in which mathematics actually interacts with today’s society. So what follows are some observations that may well be useful in this regard.
