  • Learning how to compose an effective extended text, therefore, should be conceived as a task similar to acquiring expertise in related culturally acquired domains. It is not merely an extension of our apparent biological predisposition to acquire spoken language. Rather, it is more similar to learning how to type - which is in fact one aspect of composition, as a common means of motor output. Or, it is similar to learning how to play chess - which is another planning intensive task similar to composition in its demands on thinking and memory. Or, it is similar to learning...

  • The size of this market is very roughly estimated to be around USD 3.8 trillion, already over half of the notional size of the hedge fund industry (AUM plus leverage), and growing quickly in the last two years. Structured products are passive in nature (unlike hedge fund active styles), and focus on providing returns (for different risk profiles of clients) with some element of capital guarantee. Constant proportion portfolio insurance (CPPI) is one of the popular new- generation techniques. These products have not been tested when major anomalies in volatility arise.

  • The speed adjustment allows adjustment of the speed of the unit when it is off line, and it also allows adjustment of the loading when the unit is on line. The mechanism by which it accomplishes its purpose depends on the design of the governor, but in all cases, adjusting the speed changer moves the pilot valve off center, which causes the gates to move (figure 6). If the unit is off line the gates will continue to move until the change in unit speed causes the flyballs to move enough to recenter the pilot valve. When...

  • The most commonly used measures of current fertility are the total fertility rate (TFR) and its component age-specific fertility rates (ASFRs). The TFR is an estimate of the average number of births a woman would have at the end of her reproductive years if she bears children at the prevailing age-specific fertility rates throughout her childbearing years (age 15-49). The ASFRs are defined in terms of the number of live births among women in a particular age group divided by the number of woman-years in that age group during the specific period. Figure 4.

  • The extension of central bank liquidity eased the pace of asset-shedding observed in late 2011, but did not turn the underlying trend. If the banks in the EBA sample, for instance, failed to roll over their senior unsecured debt maturing over a two-year horizon, which amounts to more than €1,100 billion (€600 billion among banks with a capital shortfall), they would have to shed funded assets in equal measure. By covering these funding needs, the LTROs and dollar swap lines helped avert an accelerated deleveraging process.

  • An operating system is usually defined as a set of programs which permit the continuous operation of a computer. The software controls scheduling and execution of application programs and use of computer resources. Simplistically, the operating system acts as the interface between the application program, the user and the IT hardware. The security and control of an operating system is a complex issue and provides an area of potentially major risk to an organisation. The complexity, size and functionality of operating systems varies enormously from one manufacturer to another.

  • · Behavioural economics has been directed more to explaining choices than to changing them. Even if there is a sense in which people can be shown to be making poor decisions it is of course debatable whether it is appropriate to try to intervene. A relatively small literature has looked at remedies for various cognitive biases. Little of this is specifically applied to personal finance. · A number of the debiasing techniques in the literature involve encouraging thinking that is more critical. “Consider the opposite” encourages people to think why they may be wrong.
