  • Medicine prices are also compared with the daily wage of the lowest-paid unskilled government worker in order to derive a measure of treatment affordability. Affordability is calculated as the number of days’ wages required to purchase selected courses of treatment for common acute and chronic conditions. Comparisons are possible across sectors, product types (e.g. originator brand versus generic) and regions within a country. Finally, data on medicines prices are broken down into components to show the cumulative mark-up applied to the base price of a medicine (e.g.

With a smaller world, faster communications, and greater interest, information relevant to a person's life, work, and recreation has exploded. However, many believe this is not all good. Richard S.

  • Understanding the long-term patterns of speciation and extinction may help sci- entists answer some of the biggest questions about today’s patterns of bio diver- sity—such as why the tropics are so diverse. David Jablonski, a paleontologist at the University of Chicago, has tackled the question by analyzing the fossil record of bivalves, noting where they were located, how large their ranges became, and how long they endured. Jablonski’s analysis of 3,599 species from the past 11 million years revealed a striking pattern.

  • The perspective of this book is that the steady - state separation model should also be the basis for developing the control confi guration for the column. Yes, a steady - state model! Although the technology to do so is widely available, extending to a dynamic model is not necessary for developing the column control confi guration. The most crucial component of every process control application is developing the piping and instrumentation (P & I) diagram that defi nes the control confi guration for the process and for each unit operation, such as distillation, within that process.

  • We discuss the use of social networks in implementing viral marketing strategies. While influence maximization has been studied in this context (see Chapter 24 of [10]), we study revenue maximization, arguably, a more natural objective. In our model, a buyer’s decision to buy an item is influenced by the set of other buyers that own the item and the price at which the item is offered. We focus on algorithmic question of finding revenue maximizing marketing strategies. When the buyers are completely symmetric, we can find the optimal marketing strategy in polynomial time.

  • Films can speak to society as a whole, but they can also be instructive for individual groups. Previous research found that movies featuring substance abuse provide a strong point of identification for addicts (Hirschman & McGriff, 1995; Lalander, 2002). Films are part of a learning process about addiction, and the movie screen might be one of the few places where addicts can see their filmic counterparts receiving help.

  • There are two things to note about this algorithm. First, low selectivity filters might cause there to be fewer than one result (on average) per element of the outer loop, though it is in general possible for each tuple to match with more than one predicate. As in any database system with these properties, it is advantageous to apply our filters as close as possible to the data source in a sensor network since this would reduce the total number of data transmis- sions in the network. Second, elements of predicates are independent of each other. Thus, predicates...

  • A major physiological adaptation of the camel is its ability to allow its body temperature to fluctuate. The normal diurnal variation in a fully hydrated camel does not exceed 2°C and is in the range of about 36 to 38°C. In a 500 kg animal the heat stored as a result of diurnal variation of this order would be about 4.2 x 106 (joules). In dehydrated camels, when considerations of energy and water conservation become more important, temperature variation can be as much as 8°C in the range of 34 to 42°C, but a more normal range is 6°C...

  • More specifically, we must further examine health beliefs, and food beliefs and practices that have symbolic or traditional importance to determine how knowledge, beliefs and attitudes translate into eating behaviour in older adults, especially at advanced ages. More research is needed to clarify the relative contribution of income, ethnic background and other personal predictors of healthy eating – self-control, emotions, resistance to change, time constraints, lack of knowledge – and environmental factors governing food availability and cost.
