  • Diaspora investors tend to have different perceptions of risk than non-diaspora investors. Given their homeland connections, diaspora members may have better information about investment opportunities in their countries of origin and are less sensitive to exchange-rate risks than other investors, because they have domestic-currency obligations in their country of origin such as support payments to family members or running costs of domestic businesses, mortgages, or returns to domestic share-holders. They also may have a different time horizon.

This is useful because different journals have different perceptions of science as well as differing opinions on how articles ought to be written. By writing directly for your target journal, you will ensure the right type of approach and speed up your writing process. If you wish to be even wiser, you may also...

  • While the consumption of prestige or status products involves purchasing a higher-priced product to embellish one‘s ego (Eastman et al. 1997), the term ―luxury‖ and the consumption of luxury goods involves purchasing a product that represents value to both, to the individual and their reference group. Therefore, in addition to the socially oriented luxury brand consumption and the human desire ‗to impress others‘, a personally oriented type of consumption should be considered in the marketing management of luxury brands.

  • There are two types of “combustion explosions”, i.e. deflagrations and detonations. There are other types of “explosions”, e.g. “physical explosions” of vessels by overpressure above the established limit due to overfill, as a result of runaway reaction, etc. The word “explosion” is rather a jargon and we will avoid applying it in this book where possible. Sometimes the use of term “explosion” could generate misunderstanding. For example, some standards do introduce wrongly from author’s point of view so-called “explosion limit”.

  • The residence time that contaminants and nutrients remain in lichen tissue differs among elements (Pucket 1985). Macronutrients, such as nitrogen, sulfur, potassium, magnesium and calcium are comparatively mobile and easily leached and therefore measurable changes in tissue concentrations can occur over weeks or months with seasonal changes in deposition (Boongaprob et al. 1989). In one study, mobile elements reached the same levels in transplants as the indigenous lichens within four to six months (Palomäki et al. 1992).

  • Small Business Problems and Priorities has three characteristics that make it unique. The first is that the survey has a very large number of respondents. Three thousand five hundred and thirty (3,530) small business owners returned useable questionnaires. The sizeable re- sponse allows break-outs into a large number of respondent categories or groups with adequate returns to analyze and compare them. It is thereby possible and appropriate to note where the responses of those in different categories or groups vary from the population and among themselves.

  • Yes, but the eye of the beholder is notoriously subjective, hopelessly narrow in its capacities for vision. One has only to consult smell or taste, for example, to realize that much more is going on than the eye can see. Science, by extending so greatly human capacities for perception, and by integrating these into theory, teaches us what is objectively there. We realize what is going on in the dark, underground, or over time. Without science, there is no sense of deep time, nor of geological or evolutionary history, and little appreciation of ecology.

  • Enriching opportunity - not sincere apology. Prior to a large-scale extension project that would mean put- ting up walls to screen off the building sites inside the terminal, this was the slogan Copenhagen Airports adapted. When Copen- hagen was Cultural City of Europe in 1996, several shops in Terminal 2 were to be renovated and the decision was made to put art on the temporary walls rather than the usual ‘sorry for the inconvenience’ signs.

  • Today’s student population is technology driven and there is an ongoing need for learning spaces and furniture to meet these rapidly developing demands. Students no longer rely on printed materials as their primary resource for learning. Instead they make frequent and steady use of digital information in support of their studies and research.

  • A necessary caveat is that we consider a specific LSM, comparing it to a specific model of internal queues. Other LSMs, perhaps associated with different settlement rules, may yield different outcomes. For example, one could think of a system where all payments (even those sent to the RTGS stream) are first passed through the LSM. Then, if LSM settlement does not happen instantly because a cycle has not formed, the urgent RTGS payments are immediately settled by transferring liquidity.

  • Recent studies have tested for particulate absorption through sampling leaves and examining the product of washing from broadleaved trees (plane, lime, elm, cherry and ash). Beckett et al. (2000b) sampled from five urban polluted sites within the South East of England2 , which were located in close proximity to road traffic. Using foliage density estimates, the total insoluble particle load per tree was found to vary between 41 and 2936 grams.

Also implicit, but not developed in this paper are decisions around the allocation of training resources to favoured employees. A different approach to ethics is introduced.
