  • These are two dramatically different exercises. 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. There is broad consensus on the methodology for evaluating evidence of the efficacy of interventions.

  • On a national scale, or regional scale depending on the size of the country, the initial step should be to conduct a water resources assessment. In this context, a water resources assessment is an integrated activity, taking into account water pollution control as well as more general water resources issues. At this very early stage it may be difficult to determine whether a certain problem is purely one of water quality or whether it also relates to the availability of water resources.

  • We welcome efforts by the European Commission to review the functioning of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive and to identify areas which need improvement. We also appreciate that the Commission has facilitated public consultations through web-based questionnaires. However, the questionnaire provided does not allow respondents to express opinions on all the important aspects of the Directive, and specifically on its functioning in practice.

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.

  • Empirical work, however, finds little support for the result of the ICAPM and documents the existence of a “home bias”--a situation where investors prefer to invest at home rather than abroad. 5 The “home bias” is puzzling because it means that investors are not only foregoing higher returns from investing abroad but they are also holding a portfolio that is not sufficiently diversified. Scholars have argued that a large measure of the home bias can be explained in terms of information asymmetries.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.
