The solid product is a wet sludge of calcium sulfate which can be disposed of easily. So
FGD does not eliminate pollution. What it does accomplish is to convert a big problem
(emission of large volumes of air contaminated by harmful levels of gaseous SOx) into a
small problem (collection and disposal of scrubber sludge).
Dealing with the problem of air pollution is not cheap. An FGD system installed in a
newly constructed power plant represents about one-third of the total cost of building the
A sewage treatment authority received an 1 l-pound credit on its discharge
permit for 22 pounds of phosphorus removed from nonpoint sources when
the authority installed sewers in a small development that had been using
septic tanks. Incentives for additional trades were eliminated because
population growth slowed and the treatment plants signiikantly improved
the operating efficiency of their existing treatment equipment. These ...
Under the Pharmaceutical Zero-for-Zero Initiative, which entered into force in 1995, the
United States and its major trading partners eliminated tariffs on many pharmaceuticals,
their derivatives, and certain chemical intermediates used to make pharmaceuticals. The
U.S. list of pharmaceutical products and chemical intermediates that are eligible for duty-
free treatment under the agreement is presented in the Pharmaceutical Appendix to the
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States.
Performance evaluation measures the skill of an asset manager and its principal idea
is to compare the returns with an alternative appropriate portfolio to that which was obtained
in a particular case. The emergence of modern portfolio theory (MPT) by Markowitz (1952),
who quantifies how rational investors make decisions based on expected return and risk, has
brought much development to portfolio performance measurement.
The run on prime MMMFs caused further disruption to already stressed short term corporate credit
markets. Though many of the redemptions from prime MMMFs flowed into Treasury and Government
MMMFs, and thus MMMF assets in aggregate fell less sharply than those of prime MMMFs, the
Treasury and Government funds were not eligible to purchase many of the corporate issues that prime
MMMFs were selling or ceasing to roll over.
For the countries in our sample, the mutual fund industry comprises 16.8% of the primary financial
assets, on average, with a median of 4.3%. As we discuss in more detail subsequently, two countries are
substantial outliers -- the fund industries in Luxembourg and Ireland account for 484% and 82% of their
country’s primary assets. We treat these two extreme observations with some care in our work. The
naïve inclusion of these countries in multivariate analyses can produce misleading results, but given that
these are two interesting data points in our analysis, it would ...
The Management Company may decide to issue within a sub-fund Share Classes having a different reference currency (currency
denomination) which denotes the currency in which the Net Asset Value per Share will be calculated. In principle, Share Classes may
be issued in the following reference currencies: Euro, Hong Kong Dollar and Pound Sterling ("Share Class Reference Currencies").
Share Classes in other Share Class Reference Currencies may be available on application to the Company.
There is an oft-quoted saying believed to have originated as a Chinese proverb: “May
you live in interesting times”. It is often not interpreted with a positive connotation!
At present, it would be fair to say that the Indian mutual fund industry is living in
interesting times. It remains to be seen how positively that can be interpreted.
The last few years have seen a series of events, both within and outside the Indian
economy, which have had a deleterious effect on the industry. The world as we knew it
has changed in many ways....
I am encouraged in arguing for such a view by a trend that seems to characterize
some recent anthropological and philosophical literature, a trend towards recognizing that
aesthetics may be usefully defined independently of art. The anthropologist Jacques
Maquet, for example, has argued repeatedly (e.g. 1979: 45; 1986: 33) that art and
aesthetics are best treated as independent. Among philosophers, Nick Zangwill (1986:
261) has argued that ‘one could do aesthetics without mentioning works of art!
Sometimes I think it would be safer to do so.’ And T. J. ...
In order to establish how important service user involvement is in good quality mental health

involvement. Barnes and Bowl (2001), Pilgrim and Rodgers (1999) and Campbell (1999),

There is considerable debate concerning the relative merits of different transportation
modes. As previously mentioned, there is little debate concerning the value of basic
highway rehabilitation, and much of the U.S. highway system is now due for major
maintenance and repair, as indicated in Federal Highway Administration Conditions and
Performance Reports (FHWA 2006).
then appointed the Associate Administrator for Organization and Management, combining the various
Agency management functions, as Bob Seamans describes. But, well before that, with the initiation of the
Apollo program, there was the need to integrate the activities of the Centers and bring strong in-house
NASA people together into the newly established Office of Manned Space Flight. The need to identify a
strong leader was urgent.
If you obtained one of your qualifications through distance education study, you will
have noticed that at the beginning of a given study module there is the heading:
Course Team. Under it are listed course writers, content editors, language editors,
graphic designers, programme coordinator, chief editor, course coordinator, etc.
In regard to the relatively trivial examples of aesthetic objects treated so far, our pleasure rested
in each case on an intuitive presentation of something external (on the presentation of `physical
phenomena' in Brentano's sense). We have now, however, reached a point where we must turn
inward and consider the feelings of higher order aesthetic pleasure which are provoked by our
presentations of mental, and particular emotional, phenomena themselves.
Retailers usually know who buys their products. Use of social media and web log files from their
ecommerce sites can help them understand who didn’t buy and why they chose not to,
information not available to them today. This can enable much more effective micro customer
segmentation and targeted marketing campaigns, as well as improve supply chain efficiencies.
Finally, social media sites like Facebook and LinkedIn simply wouldn’t exist without big data.
It is argued that the theory of situated cognition together with dynamic systems theory can explain
the core of artistic practice and aesthetic experience, and furthermore paves the way for an account
of how artist and audience can meet via the artist’s work. The production and consumption of art
is an embodied practice, ﬁrmly based in perception and action, and supported by features of the
local, agent-centered and global, socio-cultural contexts.
It is not only acceptable for people to disagree with you, it is to be expected. Social media lowers
the traditional barriers of authority and hierarchy. Never block or delete comments simply because
someone disagrees with you.
This does not mean you have to engage with such comments. One of the most challenging environ-
ments for a parliament using social media is that the nature of comments will often be political, par-
ticularly when featuring a controversial piece of legislation or investigation.
If a nonpalpable mammographic lesion has a low index of suspicion, mammographic follow-up in 3–6 months is reasonable. Workup of indeterminate and suspicious lesions has been rendered more complex by the advent of stereotactic biopsies. Morrow and colleagues have suggested that these procedures are indicated for lesions that require biopsy but are likely to be benign—that is, for cases in which the procedure probably will eliminate additional surgery. When a lesion is more probably malignant, open biopsy should be performed with a needle localization technique.

Occupational analysis provides economic development practitioners with insights into the talent base within a
region. Each occupation represents a portfolio of knowledge, skills and abilities. In Southeast Wisconsin, the
Milwaukee 7 region, economic and workforce development professionals are looking at the occupational
composition of 15 targeted industry groups, including pharmaceuticals, plastics, and industrial machinery.
