The current arrangements for local audit, whereby a single organisation - the Audit Commission - is the regulator, commissioner and provider of local audit services are inefficient and unnecessarily centralised. The Audit Commission has increased the professionalism and the quality of local government audit, but, it has also become too focused on reporting to central Government and supporting the previous era of a target driven Government.
Computer source code is often written by computer programmers. Source code is written in a programming language that usually follows one of two main paradigms: imperative or declarative programming. Source code may be converted into an executable file (sometimes called an executable program or a binary) by a compiler and later executed by a central processing unit. Alternatively, computer programs may be executed with the aid of an interpreter, or may be embedded directly into hardware.
IN THIS DAY and age of professionalism, many careers that years ago didn’t require much expertise now
require not only formal training, but also some type of recognized certification. This is particularly true
for many healthcare professions, including nursing assistant/nurse aide (NA).
Prior to 1987, there were no standards in nursing homes and the quality of care was in question.As the public
began to hear horrible stories in the media of the abuse and mistreatment of residents in nursing homes, the
government decided to step in and take action.
Health disparities in the United States correlating with race, ethnicity, language, economic
status and other demographic factors have been documented by numerous researchers.
According to the CDC, populations experiencing health disparities are growing as U.S.
demographics change. The future of American health depends on understanding, addressing,
reducing, and eliminating these disparities.
Credit awarded to students for research toward completion of a research project, or a
degree thesis or dissertation. This credit allows measure of the expected amount of work
and the resources used, while the student actually earns zero degree credit hours. The
benefit obtained is primarily to account for the resources provided, to use in reporting to
governments, and in maintaining the students’ financial aid position. Example: Senior
Research Project, Master’s Thesis, Doctoral Dissertation....
In any technological field, both short-term and longterm research can be aided by considering where that technology might be ten, twenty, fifty years down the pike. In the field of natural language interactive systems, a 21 year vision is particularly apt to consider, since it brings us to the year 2001. One wellknown vision [I] of 2001 includes the famous computer named Hal - one offspring, so to speak, of the major theoretical and engineering breakthrough in computers that Clarke records as having occurred in the early 1980's. ...

A large majority of adolescents (both married and unmarried) do not have information on
sexuality, contraception, or STIs and HIV/AIDS (Barkat et al. 2000; Nahar et al. 1999;
Haider et al. 1997). Nevertheless, RH education has not been a part of the education
curriculum, and the existing service delivery system is not catering to the needs of
unmarried adolescents. The family structure in Bangladesh is still very strong and plays a
major role in the lives of adolescents providing support, love and care, but fails to
respond to the need for reproductive health of adolescents.

Digital cinema resolution is measured in units of “K,” which stands for 1024
horizontal pixels. In the early years of the DCI Specification, the dominant
resolution was 2048 pixels horizontal x 1080 vertical, known as 2K. But 2K represents
only 7% more pixels than 1920 x 1080 HDTV. Fortunately, a more future-oriented,
higher-resolution option was also written into the DCI Specification: 4K. At 4096
pixels horizontal x 2160 vertical, this is exactly four times as many pixels as 2K, and
greater than four times the pixel count of HDTV. ...
Aim: By the end of the lesson, students will be able to get the main ideas of the lesson and some information about future life. Lexical items: Words of future life Teaching aids: Textbook, poster, pictures Procedure.

Men play two types of roles in reproductive health. Men are health care decision-makers
within the family, providers and promoters of health care, and play leadership roles in the
community and at the national level. Men also are individual beneficiaries of reproductive
health care. Men’s roles as beneficiaries extends to the protection and care of their families,
including family planning and maternal and child health.
During the time we met as a Commission, tragedies such as the African famines, the leak at the
pesticides factory at Bhopal, India, and the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl, USSR appeared to
justify the grave predictions about the human future that were becoming commonplace during
the mid-1980s. But at public hearings we held on five continents, we also heard from the
individual victims of more chronic, widespread disasters: the debt crisis, stagnating aid to and
investment in developing countries, falling commodity prices and falling personal incomes.
the prevalence of HiV/aiDS among pregnant women
is 0.9% (i.e. low for the region). Whilst 57% and 71%
of women and men respectively have ever heard about
aiDS, knowledge of prevention of transmission through
the use of condoms was very low. there are currently
no national guidelines for Prevention of Mother to child
transmission (PMtct) or Highly active antiretroviral
therapy (Haart). coverage for PMtct is accordingly
very low: only 11 pregnant women living with HiV
received PMtct services in 2007, an estimated
coverage of 1% (11/940 women).
Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells
are excellent models for the study of embryonic hematopoiesis in vitro,
aiding the design of new differentiation models that may be applicable to
We analyze a sample of 159 U.S. public companies that restated their
earnings in the years 2000 or 2001 and an industry-size matched control
sample of 159 nonrestating firms. We have assembled a unique, handcollected
data set that contains detailed information on the corporate governance
characteristics of these 318 firms. Our sample includes restatements
by prominent firms such as Abbott Laboratories, Adelphia, Enron, Gateway,
Kroger, Lucent, Rite-Aid, Tyco, and Xerox.
