"Trust, Responsibility, and Control: The Ethics of Accounting and Finance,"
the Tenth National Conference on Business Ethics, was held on the
campus of Bentley College on October 17-18, 1994. The conference, which
was sponsored by the Center for Business Ethics with the advice and assistance
of members of the Bentley Department of Accountancy, covered a
variety of issues that are of central importance for contemporary businesses.
Ownership rates across all age groups increased between 1985 and 2003. Again, this is a well-
documented and understood change that has been driven by a number of economic factors,
including, but not limited to, falling interest rates, rising standards of living, public policies
helping low- and middle-income families afford home ownership.
Among the elderly population, the ownership rate for population 85 and over exhibited the
highest increase – i.e., 16 percentage points. Data show that the ownership rate peaks at the
age 62 to 74.
This paper focuses primarily on analysis of the quantitative aspects of the research,
although this form of data collection was complemented by a series of consumer
The data was gathered using a postal and web-based questionnaire
that contained identical items. Although each sample was analysed individually, in
this paper these datasets have been combined and any notable differences highlighted
Selection of chemical markers is crucial for the quality control of herbal medicines, including
authentication of genuine species, harvesting the best quality raw materials, evaluation of post-
harvesting handling, assessment of intermediates and finished products, and detection of harmful
or toxic ingredients. Ideal chemical markers should be the therapeutic components of herbal
medicines. However, for most herbal medicines, the therapeutic components have not been fully
elucidated or easily monitored.
The eﬀect of HNC on air quality is measured using hourly air pollution records from monitoring
stations. Pollution levels are compared before and after the restrictions for ﬁve major pollutants
with levels in previous years acting as a comparison group to control for seasonal variation. The
analysis controls for possible confounding factors by restricting the sample to a relatively narrow
time window around the implementation of HNC and by using a regression discontinuity design.
Across pollutants and speciﬁcations there is no evidence that the program has improved air quality.
In the Christian tradition, the doctrine of ‘just war’ has evolved throughout the last 1,700
years, originating with St. Augustine and later significantly shaped by St Thomas Aquinas,
both of whom developed ideas of the Greek philosopher Aristotle and the Roman philosopher
Saint Augustine (354-430) served as Bishop of Hippo for 34 years. His idea of just
war has two foundations. The first, owing much to the Eastern religious traditions, is that in
all things a person should not act out of selfish considerations.
Aboriginal peoples have distinctive perspectives and understandings, deriving from their
cultures and histories and embodied in Aboriginal languages. Research that has Aboriginal
experience as its subject matter must reflect these perspectives and understandings.
In the past, research concerning Aboriginal peoples has usually been initiated outside the
Aboriginal community and carried out by non Aboriginal people. Aboriginal people have had
almost no opportunity to correct misinformation or to challenge ethnocentric and racist
In addition to ovulation, another critical function occurs during the
menstrual cycle. The woman’s body must be prepared in case fertilization
occurs. Everything must be ready to nurture the developing embryo. Dur-
ing the ﬁrst two weeks of the cycle, estrogen causes the lining of the uterus
to thicken. There is also an increase in the amount of blood that ﬂows to
During the second half of the cycle, after ovulation has occurred, the
follicle (now without the egg cell) develops into a yellow-colored body,
the corpus luteum.
In order to maintain the integrity of the community, we report observed or
suspected violations of this code of ethics with a spirit of fairness, honesty,
and respect for the rights of others. Those who report alleged misconduct and
those against whom allegations are reported are afforded all rights provided by
University policies as well as all applicable state and federal laws. Those who
are found to have violated this code will be subject to appropriate disciplinary
action, up to and including expulsion, termination of employment, or
termination of relationship.
Maximizing Operational Efficiency and Reducing Air Emissions: The Natural Gas STAR
Program, a flexible, voluntary partnership between EPA and oil and natural gas operating
companies, encourages companies—both in the United States and internationally—to adopt
proven, cost-effective technologies and practices that improve operational efficiency and
reduce methane emissions. This very successful voluntary program has 130 domestic partner
companies and 8 international partner companies.
Generally speaking, direct assembly
coding can outperform the use of intrinsics. Nevertheless,
for fairness of comparison with algorithms coded in C,we
use the provided intrinsics.
Our experimental results use single precision 32-bit ﬂoat-
ing point values as the element data type, unless otherwise
mentioned. Since SSE and SSE2 registers are 128 bits, this
choice means that S = 4. Our Pentium4 machine runs at 1.8
GHz, has 1GB of Rambus RDRAM, and uses the RedHat
Linux 7.1 operating system. We use Intel's C++ compiler
with the highest optimization level.
The International Master’s Program in the Economics of Culture: Policy,
Government and Management is organized by CEIS- Centre for Economic and
International Studies, University of Rome “Tor Vergata” in cooperation with
BAICR - Consortium of Cultural Institution.
The Master's program offers a training course based on transmission of
knowledge and experience targeted at a new social, economic and cultural
context. It provides an overview of the "culture system", of management and
design of products and cultural activities.

The increase in single-family detached housing for those aged 62 and older during the 1985
through 2003 period may be highlighting the “aging in place” choice discussed in the literature.
Based on the age groups’ rates in 1985, the group aged 45 to 54 would be expected to move
out of single-family detached (72.7 percent to 60.8 percent). The actual change, however, was
much lower – i.e., 72.5 percent to 71.8 percent.
Other factors may be drivers as well, however – e.g., single-family homes became increasingly
affordable as interest rates fell.
An infrastructure bank could be particularly effective at leveraging additional
investment because it would be able to make such investment more attractive to
private investors. A federal bank could help inexperienced states and localities
develop attractive public-private partnerships and could connect willing private
partners with these investment opportunities.
Workshops were conducted as a contribution to the
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air, launched at the World
Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002. More than
100 organizations are working together to improve health,
livelihood and quality of life by reducing exposure to
indoor air pollution, primarily among women and children,
from household energy use. For more information, or to

The human development aspects of the ECE industry also have a significant economic impact on
California. Studies of the costs and long-term benefits of high-quality ECE programs have
consistently found substantial savings derived over the course of years and decades from reduced
need for remedial and special education, reduced incarceration rates, lower rates of teen pregnancy,
and many other factors. Analyses of the costs and benefits of ECE have found impressive returns on
investment to the public, ranging from $2.69 to $7.16 per dollar invested.
In addition to the risk mitigation efforts discussed above, there is also the need for some sort of „rating
agency‟ or standard setter to „approve‟ green projects (such as green bonds or green funds) to ensure that
funds are used for green investments (and there is a common definition of „green‟) and that insurance and
guarantees can therefore be reliably offered.
OPP has reached out with Public Service Announcements (PSAs) on Spanish-language radio
stations to educate parents about the hazards of bringing pesticide residues home and is working
with migrant and worker advocates, states, and farm groups on ways to encourage parents to
send their children to school and not bring them to the fields where the parents work.
