  • One area of cognitive development influenc- ing children’s ability to learn from television is the perception of video itself. Some research suggests that children do not begin to discrim- inate between television and real-life events until the early preschool years. For example, Leona Jaglom and Howard Gardner reported qualitative observations of three children from age two to five.

  • The second aim of this thesis is to investigate whether Thai mutual fund performance can be explained by any of its characteristics. The study examines statistic and economic importance of fund characteristics to its performance. In the literature, evidence is sparse and mixed on developed markets, let alone that on emerging markets. Rather than focusing on one particular characteristic, this study draws on the evidence from five important characteristics in the literature, which offer theoretical and empirical support.

  • By combining small tasks and including a detailed description of the task it will be possible to simplify the schedule merely by reducing the number of tasks in the Gantt. The task effort estimates will be apportioned to individual roles and resources in the next task. Record all assumptions supporting the estimate in the task description. This is very important because it will enable you to recreate and substantiate the estimate. It will also ensure that you have thoroughly thoughout what is to be done, and that it is communicated clearly to the Team.

  • Our study has signi cant real-world economic implications. European funds grew from a little over $3 trillion during 2000 to nearly $9 trillion during 2007; by the end of 2007, the European industry amounted to nearly three-quarters of the size of the U.S. mutual fund industry, which, over the same period, grew from $7 trillion to $12 trillion. Further, there were over 35,000 European- domiciled mutual funds by the end of 2010 (Investment Company Institute, 2011), almost ve times the number of U.S.-domiciled funds, indicating that the European market is highly frag- mented. ...

  • The paired cards, four from the left and three from the right are then divided into two piles, forming two identical piles containing seven cards (an odd number). But because all the way through you’ve been stressing, “Here’s a pair”, your volunteer hasn’t noticed. They assume both piles are even. Yes, it’s another mind slip to cover the simple maths. With two piles of seven cards, adding the last single card turns that pile into an eight. So when you count them off two by two they are a full set of four even pairs. The spectator wonders, “Where did...

  • In the Burdett and Judd (1983) model retailers are selling only one good and thus setting only one price. As a result, while lowering it to attract the shoppers they also lose sure pro t they earn from the captives. In contrast, if retailers are selling two complements, they can keep the sum of the two prices constant at the joint reservation value of the two goods (thus ensuring that the pro t earned from the captives is unchanged) and lower one of the prices, engaging aggressively in a price competition for the shoppers. Joint discrimination is impossible if the two goods are substitutes.

  • These issues have brought us into contact with an expanded set of policymakers—both here and abroad. Under Dodd- Frank, established regulators like the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and new ones like the Financial Stability Oversight Council are writing rules that aˆect funds and their advisers. And worldwide, policymakers are adopting a more global stance. The Institute has worked to ensure that policy- makers understand the functioning and vital role of our funds. As always, our approach has been highly substantive and constructive.

  • If the proof of such a trivial consequence of sin2 A + cos2 A = 1 is now reserved only for college-intending students, how does NCTM expect the average high school graduate to understand sec2 A = 1+tan2 A ? To graph (sec2 A) and (1+tan2 A) separately and observe that the two graphs coincide, as suggested in [PEL]? With this in mind, we find it hard to believe that “the mathematics of [the Standards’] core program is sufficiently broad and deep so that students’ options for further study would not be limited” ([N1], p.9).

  • Of late, the coastal ecosystems are highly degraded due to high population and industrial growth (Glasby & Roonwal, 1995; UNEP, 1997). Due to various pollutions including pesticide poisoning (Sen Gupta et al., 1990), over exploitation of water resources by power plant industries and the municipal uses and encroachment for urban developments force the fishing community to the brink of disappearance. When those natural resources are imperilled, so too are the livelihoods of the many people who live and work there.

  • The standard approach, therefore, cannot properly measure the odds of observing a group of funds having genuine positive alphas. For example, suppose that 20 out of 200 funds have positive estimated alphas at a given significance level γ. Obviously, the true performance of these 20 funds depends on the proportion of lucky funds. For instance, if the latter is equal to 100%, all 20 funds produce, in reality, zero alphas.

  • American educators advocate an ideal of close, friendly relationships between teachers and students. But this ideal is not necessarily shared by the majority of your counterparts. Many of these teachers put the highest priority on respect. This is not to say that they discount friendship with their students, but it has to be a friendship built on a respect which acknowledges the teacher's authority. Does this mean keeping a distance from your students? Not necessarily.

  • A PricewaterhouseCoopers survey indicates that a significant communication gap exists between executive management and the internal audit function at many companies. This disturbing revelation is a formula for failure during a period of rising expectations for internal audit. Given the strong link between effective communication and management’s perception of internal audit performance, it is imperative that an internal audit group communicate effectively with its internal stakeholders.

  • The multi-annual programming documents, as defined by the different regulations, are a part of the strategic framework vis-à-vis a partner country/region. Furthermore, the standard Framework for Country Strategy Papers, which applies to EDF, ALA and MEDA programming documents will also be applied progressively to all other countries receiving financial assistance from the EC. Therefore, both programming and implementation are (or will be) managed on the basis of a single, logically coherent document _ the Country Strategy Paper (CSP).

  • Once an agreement about how to handle the transaction has been reached, it must be executed to completion according to the plan— node failure and related problems cannot cause the transaction to abort. If a node fails, it can recover from a replica that had been executing the same plan in parallel, or alternatively, it can replay the history of planned activity for that node. Both parallel plan execution and replay of plan history require activity plans to be deterministic—otherwise replicas might diverge or history might be repeated incorrectly.

  • By being lumped together with theories that superficially resemble it, TSC has mistakenly been criticised for reductionism. For instance, theories that focus on the role of perception for creating and experiencing art tend to do so at the expense of isolating artist, artwork, and viewer from their social, ideological, and historical settings (Dengerink Chaplin 2005). Thereby facts about how the historical context shapes perceptual experience are ignored that are vital for understanding art in symbolic terms, as a social and cultural phenomenon.

  • Prof. Wang is studying how bone cells sense external mechanical forces, which allows living bone tissue to adapt to its mechanical usage. With the absence of mechanical stimulation (such as the microgravity for astronauts) and loss of sensitivities of detecting the loads (such as during aging), bone mass decreases and bone structure degenerates, eventually leading to bone fracture. recent studies have found that osteocytes—the most abundant cells buried inside the mineralized matrix—serve as sensors that orchestrate bone adaptation....
