  • The countries in which you are serving most likely inherited educational systems from Britain or France. The original goal of these systems was to provide education to the children of the local elites and to supply the colonial administrations and trading companies with clerical staff.

  • We live in an era with unparalleled opportunities to practice disease prevention based on knowledge of the earth environment. Although globally distributed early warning systems can monitor physical hazards such as earthquakes and tsunamis, chemical hazards on the other hand—whether actual or potential and natural or anthropogenically induced—remain difficult to accurately identify in time and space. Such hazards often have lengthy asymptomatic latency periods before disability or disease becomes evident....

The size of a small business varies by type of business, but typically is a business or organization with up to 500 employees.

  • Small Business Problems and Priorities has three characteristics that make it unique. The first is that the survey has a very large number of respondents. Three thousand five hundred and thirty (3,530) small business owners returned useable questionnaires. The sizeable re- sponse allows break-outs into a large number of respondent categories or groups with adequate returns to analyze and compare them. It is thereby possible and appropriate to note where the responses of those in different categories or groups vary from the population and among themselves.

  • While total platform security is the domain of AlienVault, Lookout Mobile focuses on the weakest link in most communication networks, the individual smartphone or iPad.

  • Evidence shows that social media are already affecting the ways in which people find, create, share and learn knowledge, through rich media opportunities and in collaboration with each other. These practices are at the core of Education and Training, as they promote the competences needed for future jobs and enable new tools for educational institutions to transform themselves into places that support the competences needed for participation in a knowledge-based society.

  • When technology was introduced to control air pollution by reducing emissions of particles, it was found that the gaseous emissions continued and caused problems of their own. Currently efforts to control both particulate and gaseous emissions have been partially successful in much of the developed world, but there is recent evidence that air pollution is a health risk even under these relatively favorable conditions.

  • For this paper, we have examined the concept of an investigation to determine what is required. The result is an event-based framework that can be used to develop hypotheses and answer questions about an incident or crime. Hypotheses are developed by collecting objects that may have played a role in an event that was related to the incident. Once the objects are collected as evidence, the investigator can develop hypotheses about previous events at the crime scene.

  • A growing empirical literature examines the relationship between family income and child health. An article by Case, Lubotsky and Paxson (2002) (CLP) shows that, in the United States, the socioeconomic gradient in adult health has its origins in childhood. Using data from 1986 to 1994, they find that poor children are reported by their parents to be in worse health than wealthy children, and this gradient becomes larger as children grow older. These results suggest that the relationship between income and health that is observed in adulthood has its roots in childhood.

  • Women’s health is a priority population for AHRQ, meaning women have unique health care needs or issues that require special focus. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) supports research on all aspects of health care provided to women, including: enhancing the response of the health system to women’s needs; understanding differences between the health care needs of women and men; understanding and eliminating disparities in health care; and providing evidence to inform women in their health care decisions.

  • The Rome ‘Declaration on Harmonisation’ of February 2003, states that: 4 ‘We in the donor community have been concerned with the growing evidence that, over time, the totality and wide variety of donor requirements for preparing, delivering and monitoring development assistance are generating unproductive transaction costs for, and drawing down the limited capacities of, partner countries’ and that ‘donor practices do not always fit well with national development priorities’. The EC will therefore play its part in promoting harmonisation of policies and practices.

  • Increasing evidence suggests that serious mental illness is neurodevelopmental and the onset of pre-psychotic symptoms occurs in adolescence, at a time when the cerebral cortex is still developing. As with many complex disorders (e.g. hypertension, epilepsy, and diabetes), there appear to be many aetiological pathways that might lead to the final mixture of behavioral signs and symptoms we label ‘schizophrenia’.

  • None of the newer evidence altered the priority given to metformin cited in the previous guideline. Although the specific cardioprotective effects of metformin suggested by the UKPDS study were open to challenge from some of the very recent studies, this was not on the basis of strong outcome data. Large observational studies from Canada and Scotland111,112 appeared to support the widespread advantage of metformin over sulfonylureas, but the A Diabetes Outcome Progression Trial (ADOPT) study did not.

  • Estimated Average Requirement When florid manifestations of the classic dietary deficiency diseases such as rickets, scurvy, xerophthalmia, and protein-calorie malnutrition were common, nutrient adequacy was inferred from the absence of their clinical signs. Later, it was determined that biochemical and other changes were evident long before the clinical deficiency became apparent. Consequently, criteria of nutrient adequacy are now based on biologic markers when they are available.

  • Rapid population growth by itself may not always result in environmental degradation. There is case study evidence that some farm households and communities develop technical and institutional innovations in natural resource management in response to increasing pressures on resources. Such responses do not happen in all areas however, and need to be induced and supported through policy measures and other development interventions (for example in the areas of tenure, reorientation of agricultural research and extension, etc.).
