  • Many students in the surveys singled out organ music as being particularly detrimental to their viewing experiences. Overall, 43 percent of respondents in the initial survey were neutral towards a piano or organ score, with an addition- al 33.3 percent noting that such music detracted from their engagement with the films. The consensus of the large focus group for the Ballet Mechanique screen- ing was that there would have been diminished interest in the film if an organ score were used. “Organ music would be so distracting, esp.

  • One of the characteristics of non-wood fibres is the much wider range of fibre lengths in different species (Atchison 1987). Many of these fibres, such as straws, reeds and bagasse, are similar in length to the short fibre hardwoods. On the other hand, others such as flax and hemp are so long that they have to be shortened prior to papermaking (Atchison 1987). From a quality point of view, any grade of paper can be produced by the combination of different non-wood plant fibres (Atchison & McGovern 1987). For instance, flax has a very long fibre length and...

  • In recent years, the international community has paid attention to the water quality problem, especially since Agenda 21, which is the action plan to protect the environment, was adopted in 1992 (WHO/UNEP 1997: 10.1.1). In addition, in the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, one of the goals is to ‘reduce by half the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water’ (United Nations 2000). It has been internationally acknowledged that water problems are at a crisis point for human life as well as the environment.

  • Marx, it is often assumed, cared only about industrial growth and the development of economic forces. John Bellamy Foster examines Marx's neglected writings on capitalist agriculture and soil ecology, philosophical naturalism, and evolutionary theory. He shows that Marx, known as a powerful critic of capitalist society, was also deeply concerned with the changing human relationship to nature. Marx's Ecology covers many other thinkers, including Epicurus, Charles Darwin, Thomas Malthus, Ludwig Feuerbach, P. J. Proudhon, and William Paley.

  • All investments involve taking on risk. It’s important that you go into any investment in stocks, bonds or mutual funds with a full understanding that you could lose some or all of your money in any one investment. While over the long term the stock market has historically provided around 10% annual returns (closer to 6% or 7% “real” returns when you subtract for the effects of inflation), the long term does sometimes take a rather long, long time to play out. Those who invested all of their money in the stock market at its peak in 1929 (before the...

  • record of Australia is too patchy for paleontologists to say whether there were any placental mammals in Australia at this time. Abundant Australian fossils date back to about 25 million years ago, at which point all the mammals in Austrlia were marsupials. They evolved into a spectacular range of forms, including kan- garoos and koalas. It was not until 15 million years ago that Australia moved close enough to Asia to allow placental mammals—rats and bats—to begin to colonize the continent.

  • Northern China has long-standing water scarcity problems. In September 2008, after four-plus years of construction on a $2 billion 191-mile waterway, the city of Beijing began receiving water from the less populated southern regions of China. While the North-South pipeline will briefly ease the region’s water shortages, the Chinese government’s official news agency recently said the capital’s water supply could again reach a crisis point as early as 2010 due to population growth and rising domestic water consumption.

  • Economic crises are historically times of industrial renewal. Less efficient firms fail while more dynamic ones emerge and expand. Creative destruction is an essential engine of long term efficiency in market economies, and it intensifies in downturns. Available data for many OECD countries point to a sharp increase in bankruptcies and business failures in recent months. New business models and new technologies, particularly those allowing a reduction in cost, often arise in downturns, as was the case with low-cost airlines which grew out of the recession of the early 1990s.

  • At some point, one in five children and adolescents in the UK will suffer distress or disorganisation of their behaviour sufficient to be considered ‘disordered’ (Office for National Statistics, 2005). Much of this ‘disorder’ will be dealt with informally and resolve or persist at a low level, accumulating over time to present at a later stage. Some children and adolescents will be dealt with by various professionals in various capacities – teachers, school nurses, general practitioners (GPs), social workers – and never come to the attention of ‘specialists’.

  • The financial crisis has been a humbling experience for every participant in the financial system. The events of the past few years have put a particular focus on risk management, its failures and its economic implications. At Goldman Sachs, we have dealt with both the challenges of navigating the crisis itself and with questions about our actions before and during the crisis. Our risk management and business practices in the mortgage market have received much attention. In that connection, we would like to make the following points: against the U.S.

  • Since the advent of the financial crisis in the summer of 2007, each year has brought new challenges to financial markets, the fund industry, and ICI. For us, 2011 will be remembered as an inflection point: a period when the Institute engaged with more U.S., foreign, and multinational policymakers on more issues of greater consequence for our members than at any time before.

  • The 2007-2009 recession was long and deep, and according to several indicators was the most severe economic contraction since the 1930s (but still much less severe than the Great Depression). The slowdown of economic activity was moderate through the first half of 2008, but at that point the weakening economy was overtaken by a major financial crisis that would exacerbate the economic weakness and accelerate the decline. Economic recovery began in mid-2009.

  • In the current crisis, the Keynesian response of stimulating aggregate demand through easy money and loose fiscal policy is correct to a point. But flooding the system with excess liquidity that drives short-term interest rates to near zero has been a serious mistake. By the end of 2008, the interest rates on federal funds and short-term Treasury Bills were virtually zero— where they remain today (figure 1). In this liquidity trap, the interbank market remains almost paralyzed so that further Fed injections of liquidity simply led to a buildup of excess reserves in U.S.

  • The CGAP measure of relative macroeconomic performance is attractive for a number of reasons. First, it is based on changes in real GDP, a fundamental variable that should be highly correlated with changes in underlying welfare. Second, our measure should not be unduly sensitive to the stage of an economy’s business cycle going into the crisis. An economy that was overheating prior to 2008 would tend to have a positive unexplained component at that point in time, but it is only the unexplained component during the crisis itself that is considered in our analysis.

  • In Europe, economic sentiment resumed its decline, dropping significantly in the summer months. After stagnation in the first quarter of 2012, the EU and euro-area economies contracted in the second quarter reflecting a decrease in domestic demand and lower net export growth. Unemployment increased further, in particular in the countries that were hardest hit by the sovereign- debt crisis. Available hard data and leading indicators point to a weak second half of the year. For 2012 as a whole, GDP is now expected to contract by ¼% in the EU and almost ½% in the euro area. ...

  • Abstract Here I tackle three major issues, climate change, financial crisis and national security, to disclose the weak points of current remedies and propose sustainable solutions. Global warming and the unexpected 2008 financial crisis will undoubtedly impact all nations. Treating those two critical issues solely by painkiller solutions will fail because only adverse consequences are healed, not their causes. Therefore, all sources of issues must be treated at the same time by enhancing collaboration between politicians and scientists....
