We prove that almost every nonregular real quadratic map is ColletEckmann and has polynomial recurrence of the critical orbit (proving a conjecture by Sinai). It follows that typical quadratic maps have excellent ergodic properties, as exponential decay of correlations (Keller and Nowicki, Young) and stochastic stability in the strong sense (Baladi and Viana). This is an important step in achieving the same results for more general families of unimodal maps.
The use of private property rights to regulate natural resources is a con-
troversial topic because it touches upon two critical issues: the allocation
of wealth in society and the conservation and management of limited
resources. This book explores the extension of private property rights
and market mechanisms to natural resources in international areas from
a legal perspective. It uses marine fisheries to illustrate the issues that can
arise in the design of regulatory regimes for natural resources. ...
Women’s property and inheritance rights are recognised in international law and in a growing number of countries worldwide, yet women in many developing countries do not have the right to own or inherit property. At the same time, women are increasingly heading up households and are in critical need of land and property for economic security, particularly in the context of the AIDS epidemic - in fact, secure property rights are believed to be a factor in reducing women’s risk of contracting HIV and in protecting them from domestic violence....
My initial inspiration for writing this book came at a meeting of the
John and Jean DeÂ€Nault Task Force on Property Rights, Freedom, and
Prosperity at the Hoover Institution. On multiple occasions thereafter,
IÂ€ presented portions of this book to my Task Force colleagues, from
whom I always received intense but constructive criticism. The book’s
intellectual mission precisely maps the concerns that have animated my
work for most of the forty-Â�three years that I have spent in academic
From time to time we all encounter problems in the manufacture of baked
products. Sometimes they are seen as defects in the baked product which arise for
no obvious reasons. On other occasions we simply need to understand what are the
most important criteria to consider if we have to or want to change ingredients or
Solving baking problems has always been the province of the bakery ‘experts’,
those mysterious persons who always seems to know how to restore the loss of
quality, or what recipe and process changes to introduce to achieve a given quality.
This authoritative, thorough, and scientifically sound guide to nutrition and wellness provides information on weight loss, detoxification, low cholesterol, better digestion, mercury poisoning, cholesterol--and more! Optimal Nutrition for Optimal Health covers the same topics as current bestsellers such as Prescription for Nutritional Healing and The Nutrition Bible in as great a depth--but in a smaller, handier trim size and at a much more affordable price.
It is evident that insecticides have been used to boost food production to a considerable
extent and to control vectors of disease. However, these advantages that are of great
economic benefits sometimes come with disadvantages when subjected to critical
environmental and human health considerations. Many insecticides are newly synthesized
whose health and environmental implications are unknown.
This unit helps managers to understand the dynamics of individual
and group behaviour in organisations, and how different forms of
organisational structure and leadership can influence that behaviour.
It enhances managers’ ability to understand attitudes and to
predict, explain and control behaviour in organisations. The unit
links conceptual tools and experiential activities to understanding
organisations and managing the change process.

The application of competition law to intellectual-property-related cases may
well be regarded as one of the most complex and critical fields of competition
policy. Whereas in the past intellectual property and competition were mostly
considered as contradictory concepts, it is today widely admitted that both
fields of law, intellectual property and competition law, are meant to promote
complementary goals, namely innovation based on dynamic concepts of
The essays that follow adopt and adapt, explore and expand an approach to the
medieval art object that Madeline Caviness has dubbed “triangulation.” The pioneering
role of Professor Caviness in pursuing critical and theoretical goals provides the a priori
condition for this volume.

The Asia Digital Marketing Association (ADMA) is the voice of, and advocate for, the digital marketing industry in Asia (excluding Japan). The ADMA is an umbrella organisation, guided by senior executives in the industry, and charged with gaining consensus and formulating a powerful point of view on all key industry issues.
In addition to ovulation, another critical function occurs during the
menstrual cycle. The woman’s body must be prepared in case fertilization
occurs. Everything must be ready to nurture the developing embryo. Dur-
ing the ﬁrst two weeks of the cycle, estrogen causes the lining of the uterus
to thicken. There is also an increase in the amount of blood that ﬂows to
During the second half of the cycle, after ovulation has occurred, the
follicle (now without the egg cell) develops into a yellow-colored body,
the corpus luteum.
Borealis is a second-generation distributed stream processing engine that is being developed at Brandeis University, Brown University, and MIT. Borealis inherits core stream processing functionality from Aurora  and distribution functionality from Medusa . Borealis modiﬁes and extends both systems in non-trivial and critical ways to provide advanced capabilities that are commonly required by newly-emerging stream processing applications. In this paper, we outline the basic design and functionality of Borealis. Through sample real-world applications, we motivate the need for...

The sub-series Ternary Alloy Systems of the Landolt-Börnstein New Series provides reliable and
comprehensive descriptions of the materials constitution, based on critical intellectual evaluations of all
data available at the time and it critically weights the different findings, also with respect to their
compatibility with today’s edge binary phase diagrams. Selected are ternary systems of importance to
alloy development and systems which gained in the recent years otherwise scientific interest.
The correspondence 1 of P. J. Proudhon, the first volumes of which we publish to-day, has been collected since his death by the faithful and intelligent labors of his daughter, aided by a few friends. It was incomplete when submitted to Sainte Beuve, but the portion with which the illustrious academician became acquainted was sufficient to allow him to estimate it as a whole with that soundness of judgment which characterized him as a literary critic.
