The ability to recognize and deal with complex business ethics issues has become a
significant priority in twenty-first-century companies. In recent years, a number of
well-publicized scandals resulted in public outrage about deception and fraud in
business and a demand for improved business ethics and greater corporate responsibility.
Since the first desktop computers emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the power,
speed and storage capacity has increased radically, especially in recent years. Indeed, the
whole approach to computing and database management has shifted from the independent
researcher keeping records for a particular project to state-of-the-art file storage systems,
presentation and distribution over the World Wide Web.
Acute-care clinicians are well aware of the alphabetical
“ABC” (airway, breathing, circulation)
directive of resuscitation. This term has been
widely disseminated through programs such as
Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) and Advanced
Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). In fact,
both courses have contributed significantly to
improving awareness of resuscitation priorities
required in managing patients rendered critically
ill from trauma or cardiac events.
The high-technology answer seemed to lie in the creation of new manufacturing sectors,
which—by virtue of high growth and rising productivity—might restore the promise of
high-wage, stable employment. Such sectors were emerging in Silicon Valley and other
centers that increasingly looked to a combination of electronics and information as their
stock in trade. But also taking place were profound changes in the nature of manufactur-
ing; these changes would be fatal to the cities’ hopes for new sectors.
The Madoff case brought to the fore an essential development in the UCITS sphere: while the
UCITS provisions on depositaries have remained unchanged, the investment environment for
UCITS has evolved. UCITS are now able to invest in a wider range of financial assets, which
may be more complex and also may be issued and held in custody outside the EU (for
instance, in emerging markets); fund portfolios are increasingly diverse and international.
This thesis makes several meaningful contributions to the literature and the practical
perspective. First, it is conducted in a different setting from most previous studies. Thus, it
provides an out-of-sample test for the theories and empirical models so far established.
Second, this study fills one of the gaps in mutual fund studies by asking whether the
findings in developed markets carry over to emerging markets.
It has been an honor and a privilege to chair the committee on the state
of science in nuclear medicine. As a diagnostic radiologist, a clinicianscientist,
and the chairperson of a large academic radiology department,
I have been exposed to the many advances in nuclear medicine and
have observed their clinical benefits up close. Participating in this review,
however, has allowed me to step back and appreciate the magnitude of
the progress that has been achieved, and the crucial role that government
funding has played in it.
In line with this, TSC disagrees with theories that model cognition on
conscious reasoning, as reﬂecting the ways thought processes are conceptu-
alised in language. Instead, TSC states that cognition is ‘active’ in the sense
that cognitive processes emerge in concrete situations of physical action
and socio-cultural practices. In integrating conation and aﬀect, cognition is
driven by, on the one hand, the agent’s current needs and motivation and,
on the other, the contingent, contextual elements that support immediate
This volume, like its predecessor The Social Life of Avatars: Presence and
Interaction in Shared Virtual Environments , aims to provide a state-of-theart
overview of research about how people interact in shared virtual environments
(SVEs). Unlike the first volume, which covered a wide variety of topics,
the essays collected here focus on two applications of SVEs; collaborativework
and online gaming. These two areas are rapidly emerging as key drivers of SVE
The marketplace for business schools today is characterized by relentless change. Increasing
competition from nonaccredited schools and globalization of the business education market
are among the root causes of the instability. Management education is at risk, and industry-
wide leadership is needed to position business schools to respond to emerging priorities
This report lays the foundation for this long-term initiative.
The rate of application of technological advances to plants and crops in the
United States will play a major role in maintaining a sustainable leadership
position in agriculture, forestry, and manufacturing. The long-term well-being
of the nation clearly depends on near-term support of the research necessary
for developing a renewable resource base. The justification for such an intense
focus and the priorities for immediate research are contained in this roadmap
for plant/crop-based renewable resources....
The Government of Myanmar has formed an Emergency Committee and announced that the priorities of
its relief operations are to provide adequate food, safe drinking-water and shelter to the affected people.
Health issues are of major concern in districts affected by the cyclone.
The WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia and the WHO Country Office in Myanmar are actively
involved in the response. A crisis room has been activated in the WHO Country Office in Yangon.

The strategic direction contained in the Medium-term Strategy provides a clear, results-based focus for
UNEP programmes of work. This focus will enable UNEP to deliver on its mandate more effectively by
building on its existing expertise and comparative advantage in a limited number of priority areas.
UNEP has identified six cross-cutting thematic priorities. Delivering tangible results against each of the
priorities will be the focus of its efforts in the period 2010–2013.
