Following World War II, the high quality, technologically advanced products of the United States dominated world markets. With the oil shock of the 1970s, however, many of the economic advantages associated with cheap petroleum were lost and the recovered economies of Europe and Asia emerged as strong competitors in many product areas. The innovative technologies of the US could no longer insulate industries from the customer oriented approaches of European and Asian producers.
Dr. Samuel Luoma has given us an excellent description and analysis of the science of silver and
nanosilver. His paper raises many questions for policy makers. Its subtitle, “Old Problems or
New Challenges,” is appropriate, because the subject of the paper is both. Metals are among the
oldest of environmental problems. Lead, silver and mercury have posed health hazards for thousands
of years, and they are as persistent in the environmental policy world as they are in the
Mastering .NET development is as much about understanding the functionality of the .NET Framework as it is about the syntax and grammar of your chosen language. Visual C# 2005 Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach recognizes this fine balance. This book meets your need for fast, effective solutions to the difficulties you encounter in your coding projects.
The recipes included in this book have been chosen and written with emerging pros in mind. The book features an equal balance of code and text.
Ischemic heart disease continues to be the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in
both developed and developing countries, and remains one of the most important
public health problems. The continuous rise in the prevalence of disorders such as
obesity, diabetes, dyslipidemia and hypertension is driving the ever-increasing
number of incidences of ischemic heart disease.
The book on emerging informatics brings together the new concepts and applications that will help define and outline problem solving methods and features in designing business and human systems. It covers international aspects of information systems design in which many relevant technologies are introduced for the welfare of human and business systems.
Hundreds of internet leaders, activists, builders and commentators were asked about the
effect of the internet on social, political and economic life in the year 2020. The views of
the 742 respondents who completed this survey were varied; there is general agreement
about how technology might evolve, but there is less agreement among these respondents
about the impact of this evolution.
Reacting to several scenarios constructed by the Pew Internet & American Life Project,
the respondents struck on several themes and emergent problems in their answers:
Over the past few decades, life-threatening environmental concerns have surfaced in the
developing world. Countrysides are coming under pressure from increasing numbers of
farmers and the landless. Cities are filling with people, cars, and factories.
This cross-disciplinary book documents the key research challenges in the mathematical sciences and physics that could enable the economical development of novel biomedical imaging devices. It is hoped that the infusion of new insights from mathematical scientists and physicists will accelerate progress in imaging.
Media Piracy in Emerging Economies is the first independent, large-scale study of music, film and software piracy in emerging economies, with a focus on Brazil, India, Russia, South Africa, Mexico and Bolivia. Based on three years of work by some thirty five researchers, Media Piracy in Emerging Economies tells two overarching stories: one tracing the explosive growth of piracy as digital technologies became cheap and ubiquitous around the world, and another following the growth of industry lobbies that have reshaped laws and law enforcement around copyright protection.
From a general perspective, the verbal judgements
referred to above have been obtained with one of two
principal objectives in mind, objectives that have origi-
nated and developed in traditionally differentiated pro-
fessional fields: (1) that of environmental management,
motivated by the need to solve a particular landscape
problem, such as the identification of the landscape
resources of a given location or to obtain some objecti-
ve predictors of the evaluative judgements of users of a
specific environment; and (2) that of a much more aca-
demic character, geared to the develo...
Moreover it is important to be able to restrict this invasive
investigation to men who are likely to benefit from treatment of this malignancy. There are
currently concerns that Western clinicians and healthcare providers are over-diagnosing large
numbers of men who would otherwise never have been troubled by their clinically
undetectable prostate cancer.
It is often ignored that imprisoning women has greater social cost to family and community than
does imprisoning most men prisoners. Family breakdown, long-term problems among children
taken into care and a loss of community spirit and cohesion can push the social costs of women’s
imprisonment considerably higher than for men’s imprisonment.
This is a background paper for the Kyiv Declaration on Women’s Health in Prison, which was
discussed and adopted during the WHO International Conference on Prison Health in November
t has produced a rigorous and qualitative overview of the problems of rural schooling in the context of rural poverty. Through it, the reader comes to understand better the complexity of the problems of rural communities and schooling and the importance of listening to the voices of the rural poor. It makes clear that there are no magic solutions but does point to a singular conclusion that, the great majority of children in rural poor communities are receiving less than is their right in a democratic South Africa. Worse still, is the fact that this will...

By learning how to “dial for dollars,” you can transform
the telephone that’s already sitting on your desk into a virtual
money-making machine with unlimited potential.
Throughout this book, the terms telemarketing and telesales
are used interchangeably. However, some people define
telemarketing as the use of the telephone to make contact with
prospects, whereas telesales involves actually moving the pros-
pect further down the sales cycle or sales pipeline. The skills
required of a telemarketer and/or telesales professional, as you’ll
soon see, are identical....
Global Corporate Finance provides students with the practical skills needed to understand global financial problems and techniques. The fifth edition of this essential text emphasizes shareholder value and corporate governance, global strategy, and corporate finance practice. With the addition of 26 new case studies, an enhanced focus on international topics, and increased coverage of emerging markets, the new edition is an indispensable text for undergraduate and graduate students.
In the 4th edition we have distilled the text to a set of fl ow diagrams with
linked tables. Our aim is to provide the doctor caring for an acutely ill patient
with rapid access to key information, including a balanced interpretation of
current national and international guidelines.
We have substantially broadened the scope of the book to cover all problems
in general medicine likely to be encountered in the emergency department.
Integration of the use of echocardiography, which we believe is as
important in acute medicine as ECG interpretation, is a particular feature of
The identification of a causative toxin is one of the most important tasks in emergency medicine; it requires both rapidness and accuracy. In the Japan-shaking poisoning incidents taking place in 1998, such as curry (arsenous acid) poisoning in Wakayama, sodium azide poisoning in Niigata and cyanide poisoning in Nagano, the importance of a rapid and accurate analysis system for poisons was well recognized by Japanese people and goverment.
