  • You may be asked to choose between a “tax-qualified” long-term care insurance policy and one that is “non-tax-qualified.” There are important differences between the two types of policies. These differences were created by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). A federally tax-qualified long-term care insurance policy, or a qualified policy, offers certain federal income tax advantages. If you have a qualified long-term care policy and you itemize your deductions, you may be able to deduct part or all of the premium you pay for the policy.

In recent decades much work in the public health field has focused on the first, on identifying the primary causes of poor health, including their prevalence and distribution, and on developing an evidence-based understanding of the interventions that will work to addresses those causes.

  • About one million children develop tuberculosis (TB) annually worldwide, accounting for about 11% of all TB cases. Children with TB differ from adults in their immunological and pathophysiological response in ways that may have important implications for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of TB in children. There is an urgent need to improve the diagnosis and management of children with TB, and the prevention of TB in children, by ensuring their inclusion under the implementation of the Stop TB strategy by National TB Programmes.

  • In some cases, the larger cells may be further distinguished based on their scattering characteristics (coccolithophorids) or the presence of both PE and chlorophyll (cryptophytes) (Olson et al., 1989; Collier & Campell, 1999). Many authors have reported the distributions and dynamics of each photosynthetic group in the water column in different marine environments (Li, 1995; Campbell & Vaulot, 1993; Vaulot & Marie, 1999).

  • This book is about the distribution and abundance of different types of organism, and about the physical, chemical but especially the biological features and interactions that determine these distributions and abundances. Unlike some other sciences, the subject matter of ecology is apparent to everybody: most people have observed and pondered nature, and in this sense most people are ecologists of sorts. But ecology is not an easy science.

  • 3 Temporary Planktonic Existence 3.1 RELEASE OF PROPAGULES INTO PLANKTON The sources of colonization of living and non-living (inert) surfaces in the marine environment are communities inhabiting hard substrates of natural and artificial origin, and also soft grounds (see Chapter 1). They release dispersal forms, usually called propagules, into water: microorganisms, animal larvae, and macroalgal spores, which are potential colonists (foulers). The contribution of different hard-substrate communities to the colonization (biofouling) process is not the same.

  • To date, most mutual fund performance evaluations have been fairly simplistic: how has a fund performed relative to “the market”? The Standard & Poor’s 500 Stock Index is usually used as a proxy for the market, despite the fact that it accounts for only about 70% of the capitalization of the U.S. stock market and is dominated by corporations with gigantic market capitalizations. (Its largest 25 stocks account, on average, for 1% of the entire market; the 6500 “non-500” stocks in the market have an average weight of 4/1000 of 1%.) But today, many funds resemble...

  • The number of alerts the Threat Analyzer can display has a direct correlation to your system's memory. Since you can access the Central Manager from the local host or a remote connection, this depends on the machine used for the Central Manager logon. The memory overhead for alerts, including the code base and Java virtual machine, is approximately 1 KB per alert when there are at least 10,000 alerts in the Threat Analyzer (more KBs when there are fewer alerts). McAfee recommends 1 GB of RAM in your system which enables you to handle up to 1,000,000 total alerts. If...

  • However, such a strategy is inappropriate for the United States in current circumstances. Inflation expectations appear reasonably well-anchored, and both inflation expectations and actual inflation remain within a range consistent with price stability. In this context, raising the inflation objective would likely entail much greater costs than benefits. Inflation would be higher and probably more volatile under such a policy, undermining confidence and the ability of firms and households to make longer- term plans, while squandering the Fed’s hard-won inflation credibility.

  • The outputs of an ARIES session have numerous practical uses for conservation and economic development planning. Notably, they can show which regions are critical to maintaining the supply and flows of particular benefits for specific beneficiary groups. By prioritizing conservation and restoration activities around sources and sinks for particular services, benefit flows may be maintained or increased. Similarly, focusing development or extractive resource use outside these regions can prevent degradation of benefit flows.
