  • Geochemical – Geochemical surveys that monitor the reservoir characteristics have routinely been used in the oil and gas industry and have been successfully adopted for use in monitoring carbon sequestration. Initially, reservoir samples (solids, liquids, and gases) are collected to establish a baseline prior to CO2 injection; tests can be repeated later to monitor CO2 migration (using tracers), or to assess geochemical changes, as CO2 saturated brine reacts with the reservoir formation.

This was groundbreaking because a film with such lurid subject matter (it is the tale of two serial killers) had never achieved this status before. The film could be described as a hybrid genre film mixing the police procedural/detective thriller genre with the horror movie.

  • On the political side, mechanisms for the rapid disbursement of project grants to poor municipalities have an obvious potential for partisan pa- tronage and for political advantage, particularly during election processes. This has to be faced. To reduce the improper management of financial resources, it is critical to adopt transparent and objective selection crite- ria for projects. Additionally, to ensure long-term support for funds by international donors, it is important that technical staff are not treated as political appointees to be changed with each new government....

Surrogacy can be paid or unpaid, and often involves a legal contract in which the surrogate gives up parental rights to the child she births. If the surrogate’s own eggs are used through alternative insemination or IVF, she is known as the “genetic surrogate.” If embryos are created using another woman’s eggs and implanted in the surrogate, she is known as the “gestational surrogate” and has no genetic tie to the child. Hiring a surrogate in the US can...

  • In many small and shallow aquifers the hydrochemistry does not evolve further. However, the baseline natural quality of groundwater may vary spatially within the same aquifer if the mineral assemblages vary, and also evolves with time as the water moves along groundwater flow lines. If an aquifer dips below a confining layer (Figure 2.5), a sequence of hydrochemical processes occurs with progressive distance down gradient away from the outcrop, including precipitation of some solids when relevant ion concentrations reach saturation levels for a solid mineral phase.

  • Recognizing that human capital is important means that we also want to protect it to the extent we can. Although it is not easy to protect the overall level of our earnings powers, we can financially protect against death, which is the worst-case scenario. Most of us will want to invest in life insurance, which protects us against this mortality risk. Thus, our financial portfolio during the accumulation stage of our lives will typically consist of stocks, bonds, and life insurance. We face another kind of risk after we retire.

Unlike market forest goods and services, non-market ones are not traditionally traded and their value is not defined by the market price. At the same time the access to non-market forest goods and services is largely unlimited and free in most of the EU Member States. These characteristics of non- market goods and services, combined with their growing importance and social demands, can lead to an un-sustainable management of these goods and services. ...

  • Further, this current publication is dedicated to the work of those who have employed the methodologies espoused by Caviness. It is meant to address all whose critical methods have been denigrated, whose contributions, when theoretically grounded, have been refused for publication, or whose critical insights have been expunged by editors, peer reviewers, and publishers. For obvious reasons this remains a virtual community, whose members remain unaware of each other, but it may be cultivated as a conscious epistemic community whose members seek support from one another.

  • In addition, Kaiser CDSMP participants had 0.2 fewer visits to the emergency room and 0.97 fewer hospital days compared to the year prior to completing the CDSMP. As a result, they reduced their health care costs. For example, if the average cost per day of hospitalization were $1,000 and the average cost of an emergency room visit were $100, the potential savings would be $990 per participant for the first year following completion of the program (0.97 days of hospitalization multiplied by $1,000 plus 0.2 emergency visits multiplied by $100).

Instead what is needed is an external risk-free store of value such as government bonds.

The Church calls upon the business leader to receive—humbly acknowledging what God has done for him or her —and to give—entering into communion with others to make the world a better place.
