As indicated above, while YouthAIDS highlighted PSI’s ability to manage consumer brands, this
same discipline had not been applied to the corporate “PSI brand.” PSI’s core audience was
defined as those who influence resource decisions for public health investments in developing
countries. As a result, PSI had focused its branding and outreach efforts with multi- and bi-
lateral government donors. PSI had not been historically marketed to a broader audience and
was not well-known to the general public.
There were around 20 million enterprises in the non-financial business economy across the EU-27 in 2005; of these enterprises 99.8% were SMEs, the majority of which were micro enterprises. It is recognised that an SME-friendly business environment (e.g. in the Small Business Act), both at Community level and in the Member States, is crucial for growth and jobs in Europe. In some key industries, such as textiles, wood products, metal products, publishing, construction and furniture-making, they account for more than 70% of all jobs.
For some time now, movie marketing has expanded its boundaries beyond discrete
paratexts such as posters, TV ads, trailers, or featurettes, and into such publicity-driven
entities such as “Entertainment News” shows, actual news segments covering movie
premieres or milestones, and other nebulous promotional venues. The digital environment
accelerates such embedments and boundary-crossings. Marketing becomes an
increasingly elusive and crucial subject for film historians interested in ecologies of
Traditional retailing (bricks and mortar) itself has been witness to numerous
realignments; the dawning of the Internet has forced a fundamental reexamination of the
value notion as viewed from the consumer’s perspective. Retailing itself has been
dynamic in its format. From a historical traveling caravan, to a mail order behemoth
created by the ingenuity of Sears, Roebuck & Co.
The AICPA has established professional standards that apply to financial audits and attestation engagements for nonissuers (entities other than issuers26 under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, such as privately held companies, nonprofit entities, and government entities) performed by certified public accountants (CPA). For financial audits and attestation engagements, GAGAS incorporates by reference AICPA standards, as discussed in paragraph 2.08.
In addition to these intrinsic and extrinsic attributes, the consumption situation has been
found to have a determining influence in the selection and purchase of wine. Indeed,
situation is becoming an important area of focus in marketing research because the
situational influence on consumer behavior suggests that situation may be used as a
basis for market segmentation (Hall and Lockshin, 2000). Despite this growing
importance, however, to date a limited number of studies have been conducted which
investigate situation as a determinant of choice behavior.
Privatization of services in agricultural sector is beginning to happen. Sharing of agricultural research,
extension and development domains with increasing private sector participation is changing the
structure and composition of agricultural development process itself. Production, efficiency, equity
and sustainability related goals assume conflicting propositions increasing the complexity of
challenges confronting the Indian National Agricultural System.
Qualifications: Key physician faculty must have current certification in the specialty. Most
Review Committees will not approve key physician faculty members who are not ABMS board
certified and not eligible for certification. In the rare event that a program has such an individual,
the program director should contact the Review Committee executive director for information on
whether the Review Committee would consider approval and, if so, what information the Review
Committee would need to determine if the individual is acceptable.
It is reasonable to suppose that TNCs affiliates operating in the Brazilian pulp and paper sector search
for exploring the advantages of producing lower costs pulp to the domestic and international paper
markets, but it is also expected that they make innovation efforts to absorb and to extend the short-fiber
pulp technological knowledge based on eucalyptus. The participation of four important TNCs in two
Research Consortiums on Eucalyptus in Brazil at the present time corroborates to this expectation. This
implies a qualification on the first hypothesis (H.
U.S. government agency bonds and securities are issued by
agencies that are owned, backed, or sponsored by the U.S.
government.While some of those bonds and securities are
backed by the full faith and credit of the government, others
carry less formal guarantees.The most common agency securities
are mortgage pass-through securities such as those issued by
the Government National Mortgage Association (GNMA, or
“Ginnie Mae”), the Federal National Mortgage Association
(FNMA, or “Fannie Mae”), and the Federal Home Loan
Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC, or “Freddie Mac”).
Maternal mortality levels in Kenya remain unacceptably high at 488 per 100,000 live births
United Nations estimated in 2005 that 1 in every 39 Kenyan women die in childbirth; while major
progress has been made in reducing infant and child mortality rates, one in every 19 babies born in
Kenya this year will die before their first birthday. 60% of these deaths will occur in the neonatal
Volunteers can boost the quality of services in charities
and congregations while reducing costs. However, these
organizations are not always fully equipped to make the
most of their volunteers. In order to better understand
the current state of volunteer management capacity,
The UPS Foundation, the Corporation for National
and Community Service, and the USA Freedom Corps
organized the first national study of volunteer management
capacity. Conducted by the Urban Institute, the
study draws on representative samples of charities and
In some cases, being wherever the consumer is means selling products to them when they are ready to
buy. As CG companies continue their experimentation with direct-to-consumer sales—through their own
online storefronts or social media—they will need to start thinking more like the retailers with which they
have long partnered.
This shift in mindset will require changes in the marketing mix to accommodate increased investments
in social media, mobile and other digital channels.
We are Marcia Rackow, an artist, and Arnold Perey, an anthropologist, and are
consultants on the faculty of the Aesthetic Realism Foundation. Both of us are honored to have
studied with Mr. Siegel whose centenary is being celebrated this year, including in Baltimore,
MD where he grew up. His birthday, August 16th
, was designated "Eli Siegel Day" by the mayor
and by the governor. We're proud to study now in classes taught by Ellen Reiss, the Class
Chairman of Aesthetic Realism.
As countries develop, many transactions that once would have occurred in the shadow economy
move to formal establishments, Önanced by formal banking. A little-observed fact is that this
transition does not necessarily bring the formalization of income. In particular, in countries
with generous social services, an environment of semiformality can emerge, in which individuals
remain registered taxpayers, to receive public beneÖts, but do not declare all of their income
to tax authorities.
Particulate emissions from road transport arise as direct emissions from vehicle exhausts, tyre and brake
wear and resuspension of road dust. In urban areas, emissions from road transport are thought to be the
major source of PM10. In general, diesel engine vehicles emit a greater mass of fine particulate matter, per
vehicle, than petrol engines.
Diesel emissions are mainly composed of soot particles, volatile hydrocarbons and some sulphate from
the fuel sulphur.
As set out in the relevant Decree, the mission of the Finnish Higher
Education Evaluation Council (FINHEEC) is to assist Finnish universities
and universities of applied sciences as well as the Ministry of Education and
Culture in matters relating to the evaluation of higher education institutions
(HEIs). FINHEEC supports HEIs and their international competitiveness
through evaluations, and by supporting quality work and disseminating good
There are multiple documents issued by central agencies that provide guidance and stipulate requirements for
the program and project management of initiatives. It is recognised that these need to be consolidated and
simplified, and that in the main they say “what” is to be done, not “how to” do it.
For “how to” guidance many departments and agencies using non-proprietary best practice methods as the
foundations of their Portfolio, Program and Project Management capability
The relationships between columns in different tables are typically described through
the use of keys, which are implemented through referential integrity constraints and
their supporting indexes. For example, in Figure 1-2, you can establish a link
between the DEPTNO column in the second table, which is called a foreign key,to
the DEPTNO column in the first table, which is referred to as the primary key of that
Finally, even if you define many different indexes for a table, you don’t have to
understand them or manage the data they contain.
