  • Thus, after buying into winning funds, investors unwittingly benefit from momentum returns on winning stocks. To test this reasoning, Sapp and Tiwari calculate abnormal performance following money f lows with and without accounting for the momentum factor, and find that inclusion of the momentum factor in the performance evaluation proce- dure eliminates outperformance of high f low funds. In addition, they show that investors are not deliberate in seeking to benefit from stock-level momentum: More popular funds do not have higher exposure to themomentumfactor at the time they are selected.

  • Literature: When reading literature, students must demonstrate their capacity to pay special attention to the choices authors make about words and structures. Many literary effects depend on the order in which events unfold and the specific details used to describe characters and actions. Since these same strategies—order and use of detail—are equally critical in understanding the most demanding informational texts, reading literature helps students comprehend what they read in science, history and other subjects.

  • The last three rows demonstrated the crucial counterintuitive prediction that small prey would be excluded from the diet, independently of their encounter rate, if the encounter rate with large prey were above a certain quantifiable threshold. Those were heady days! Setting aside the fact that the small prey were not totally ignored, it seemed as though a very simple, testable model, derived from a few starting assumptions about rate maximization and constraints on foraging, could actually predicthowan animal responded in an experiment. It’s hard to overstate the excitement at the time....

  • Finally, the requirements that a fund has to fulfill in order to be included in the SIF's listing of SRI funds are not stringent. For example, a fund could be on the list just by having a formal policy of excluding companies with interests in the tobacco business. If the constraints that SRI (as defined in our data set) imposes on fund managers are minor, the performance of SRI mutual funds should not be expected to be lower than that of conventional funds. It is important to highlight that the estimated performance differences between SRI and conventional funds cannot...

  • The issue of disparity and inequalities between black and minority ethnic groups and the majority white population in rates of mental ill health and equality of service in terms of experience and outcomes has figured in government policy since Labour took office in 1997. The death of an African-Caribbean patient named David Bennett in a secure psychiatric unit whilst detained under the Mental Health Act (1983) and the subsequent inquiry report published in 2003 found the NHS to be “institutionally racist”.

  • Psychological rather than informational differences may explain much of the variation in financial capability reported in the FSA (2006) Baseline Survey. This applies both to differences between individuals and across competence dimensions. The Baseline Survey indicates that in most capability categories, scores improve with age and the level of general education. This is consistent with the importance of attitudes rather than teachable specific knowledge.

  • distributors have a limited incentive to invest on training and improving the awareness, knowledge and skill of distributors. Economic compulsions could see companies move towards a committed distributorship system. Alternate lower cost distribution channels: Other avenues for AMCs to diversify their distribution base could include an examination of distribution channels prevalent in other industries, especially those that involve a low distribution cost— such as the FMCG industry.

  • A battle cry of the reform is “Mathematics for all! ” In an attempt to make this come true, there is presently a conscientious effort to spread the news that “Math is fun! ” While applauding the good intention, we never- theless must ask whether the constant repetition of this slogan like a mantra helps students learn mathematics. Have students been told that this kind of “fun” includes the fun of working hard to solve difficult problems? Nothing good comes cheaply, and learning mathematics is no exception.

  • Make the roles of the project team members clear from the beginning. Projects can work as group democracies, but it usually helps to have a project leader who is responsible for organisation and for seeing that deadlines are kept. Project team members will often do a lot of extra work, but putting too much stress will often be counter-productive in the long run.

  • A piece of art in an airport has difficult conditions to con- tend with. It has to compete with signs, advertisements and temp- ting shop windows for the attention of the passenger. It will never receive the undivided attention of the observer it would in a gallery or private home. It must be an integral part of the architec- tural surroundings and yet be visible enough and demonstrative enough to catch the eye of the preoccupied passenger rushing past it. On the other hand, what art gallery can guarantee the artist an audience of 50,000 people - every day?...

  • All human activity has an aesthetic aspect. We are always, though at varying levels of awareness, concerned with the aesthetic qualities of our aural, haptic, kinetic, and visual sensations. If art were to be defined so broadly as to encompass any human activity or product with an aesthetic aspect, then none could be denied the status of art. This seems to me unwarranted; the possible insight seemingly captured by such an argument is adequately caught by saying that all human activity has an aesthetic aspect. ...

  • What is wrong is that adding money, in this case the medium of exchange function, to a model when it is not required leads only to counterintuitive results. Wallace’s proposal to add unit of account endowments to the Arrow-Debreu model to explain the role of a central bank in determining the price level is another example. The simple fact is that appending some or all of the functions of money to the Arrow- Debreu economy leads to counter intuitive results because the functions of money are not required and if appended to the model are inessential additions in the sense of...
