In particular, public awareness can be increased by engaging policymakers and communities,
especially parents and children, in a public discourse that questions current norms around the
advertising of fast food and soda to children and disadvantaged ethnic communities. Children
in particular need to be brought into the dialogue and involved in creating healthier
This report was prepared by a team from the OECD's Information Economy Unit of the Information,
Communications and Consumer Policy Division within the Directorate for Science, Technology and
Industry. The contributing authors were Chris Bruegge, Kayoko Ido, Taylor Reynolds, Cristina Serra-
Vallejo, Piotr Stryszowski and Rudolf Van Der Berg.
The case studies were drafted by Laura Recuero Virto of the OECD Development Centre with editing
by Elizabeth Nash and Vanda Legrandgerard.
The work benefitted from significant guidance and constructive comments from ISOC and UNESCO.
The initial stage of knowledge-telling consists of creating or retrieving what the author
wants to say and then generating a text to say it. The author is not entirely egocentric in
knowledge-telling and can begin to take into account the reader's needs. Specifically,
by the time children are beginning to write they realize that another person's thoughts
about the world may differ from their own. By about the age of 4, children have
acquired a theory of mind that allows them to take another's perspective (Wellman,
1990; Wellman, Cross, & Watson, 2001).
Following the vote of the EU Parliament plenary session of
11 November 2010, and without formally waiting for the entry into force of the Directive expected for mid-2011, work on the implementation phase has started. This work will span more than two years, and will consist of two main pillars: Member States will draft their implementing legislation while the Commission and ESMA (former CESR)6 will work on so-called “Level 2” measures or technical and regulatory guidelines for implementation.
The Corporation is a mutual fund corporation as
defined in the Income Tax Act (“Canada”) with a
September 30th tax year-end. All of the outstanding
share classes are aggregated in determining the tax
position of the corporation as a whole. Interest and
foreign income are taxed at corporate rates subject to
permitted deductions for expenses. The taxable
portion of net capital gains is subject to tax at
corporate rates applicable to mutual fund corporations,
but taxes paid thereon are refundable.
The dominant nature of this long-short or spread trading
activity explains why hedge funds do so well in market
downturns (i.e. it is not directional). But it also explains why
leverage needs to be relatively high: investing in a strong
stock market generates strong returns, while investing in a
low-risk spread in a long-short strategy does not. So the
trade has to be levered up a number of times in order for the
spread trades to generate competitive returns (while keeping
the benefit of avoiding directional risk in the market).
The Interagency Working Group on Food Marketed to Children (Working Group),
comprised of representatives from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the
United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), seeks public comment on a preliminary
proposal for voluntary principles to guide industry self-regulatory efforts to improve the
nutritional profile of foods marketed to children.
Use caution when testing. Certain types of testing, including network scanning, vulnerability testing,
and penetration testing, can mimic the signs of attack. It is imperative that testing be done in a
coordinated manner, with the knowledge and consent of appropriate officials.
Ensure that security policy accurately reflects the organization’s needs. The policy must be used as a
baseline for comparison with testing results. Without appropriate policy, the usefulness of testing is
Our VLDB 1997 paper  reported our first technical results
from the AutoAdmin project that was started in Microsoft
Research in the summer of 1996. The SQL Server product group
at that time had taken on the ambitious task of redesigning the
SQL Server code for their next release (SQL Server 7.0). Ease of
use and elimination of knobs was a driving force for their design
of SQL Server 7.0. At the same time, in the database research
world, data analysis and mining techniques had become popular.
In starting the AutoAdmin project, we hoped to leverage some of...

All this was on my mind when the Secretary-General presented me with an argument to which
there was no convincing rebuttal: No other political leader had become Prime Minister with a
background of several years of political struggle, nationally and internationally, as an
environment minister. This gave some hope that the environment was not destined to remain
a side issue in central, political decision making.
In the final analysis, I decided to accept the challenge. The challenge of facing the future, and
of safeguarding the interests of coming generations.
Remember, not everyone should buy a long-term care insurance policy. For
some, a policy is affordable and worth the cost. For others, the cost is too
great, or the policy they can afford doesn’t offer enough benefits to make it
worthwhile. You should not buy long-term care insurance if the only way
you can afford to pay for it is by not paying other important bills. Look
closely at your needs and resources, and discuss it with a family member to
decide if long-term care insurance is right for you. (There are several
worksheets at the back of this book that will help you as you think...
Listing standards may or may not address governance issues directly
and/or compliance with an applicable governance code may well be part of
individual listing agreements. In some instances, as mentioned above, listing
standards incorporate elements of the governance code (cf. the Australian
example). In other jurisdictions, additional governance standards - over and
above the governance code - have been introduced as part of the listing
requirements. For instance, the Stockholm Stock Exchange and the TSX both
impose such standards (e.g.
Bivariate and multivariate analyses were done to measure the effects of the interventions.
Knowledge of HIV/AIDS increased in the intervention sites compared to the control
sites, with greater improvement in Site B with the additional school-based intervention.
The knowledge of contraceptives improved in both intervention and control sites, with
the greatest improvement seen in Site A.
The diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis can be made by the detection of acid fast bacilli by direct microscopy, using carbol fuchsin stain and/or fluorochrome stain. Microscopy is a rapid method but lacks sufficient sensitivity and does not distinguish between different species of mycobacteria. The sensitivity of microscopy is often not more than 25-40% as compared to culture, but under ideal conditions, it is possible to achieve a rate of 60-70%.
In the last 10-20 years epidemiology has dealt extensively with the effect of outdoor air pollution on
human health. A considerable number of case studies in different countries and under different
exposure situations have confirmed that air pollution is one of various risk-factors for morbidity and
In general, air pollution is a mixture of many substances (particulates, nitrogen oxides, sulfur
dioxides). Knowing that several indicators of exposure (eg. NO2, CO, PM10, TSP etc.
The linkage between model
results and monitoring data can be complicated if
monitoring programs are not designed to address
which parameters should be monitored, timing of
measurements, location, spatial scale, and resolution
of measurements to match with model parameters.
This is particularly valuable in the early stages of
a project when the opportunity exists to alter the
project to ensure long-term storage and improve
Today customers have more choices, higher expectations, and greater influence. The voice of the customer has never been louder and has taken control of the conversation and forever changed the relationships with brands. Customers decide how, when, and where they want to engage with your brand—whether it’s in the store, on the Web, over the phone, or across their social networks. They expect you to know who they are and what they need, and to seamlessly recognize them at every touchpoint.
The guiding principles for water resources management (see section 10.1) should be
reflected in the long-term strategy. For example, management at the lowest appropriate
level should be pursued through the identification of the lowest appropriate level for all
identified key functions, irrespective of the present level of management. For some
functions, the lowest appropriate level is a local authority or unit, while for other functions
it is a central authority (e.g. Case Study I, India).
