  • Two other sets of concepts that generate strong, and sometimes conflicting, reactions are the notion of what is 'public' (the public sector, the state, action that takes place in public) versus what is 'private' (of interest only to the individual/family, the private sector); and the meanings associated with money. We suggest that donation is a multi-layered process with each layer having its own public and private meanings. It may therefore be more helpful to think of public and private as being complementary and overlapping rather than in opposition (see Box 4.3).

  • The strategic communications audit should result in more than just an identification of areas or practices that need to be improved. To maximize the chances that audit findings will be used and actual practice improved as a result, the audit should: Demonstrate through data how communications problems are causing problems in the present (as opposed to speculating about their future impact). At the same time, the audit should reinforce practices that are current organizational strengths.

  • In Canada, other factors such as digester insulation, because of cold weather, also influence the final cost of such a system. To be economical, digester capital cost must be offset by energy savings, fertilizer use, and bedding replacement . Another disadvantage 17 is that fresh poultry manure can be hauled as solid manure, but if digested, the dilution water would increase the original volume by about four times . As well, the biogas produced has low energy per unit volume and can only be used for on-site operations such as running an electrical generator.

  • At the start of the 21st century, the learning potential of significant numbers of children and young people in every country in the world is compromised. Hunger, malnutrition, micronutrient deficiencies, parasite infections, drug and alcohol abuse, violence and injury, early and unintended pregnancy, and infection with HIV and other sexually transmitted infections threaten the health and lives of children and youth (UNESCO, 2001).

  • Unless a poll is demanded by the chairman of the general meeting or by the specified number of shareholders or by the shareholders holding specified shares, the voting at a general meeting is done through a show of hands. Each shareholder has one vote. In the case of a poll, voting rights of a member are in proportion to his share of the paid-up equity capital. Preference shareholders have the right to vote only on matters that directly affect the rights attached to preference shares. Preference shareholders have the same rights to voting as equity shareholders if the dividend has...

  • Throughout the late-1940s and 1950s, the top marginal tax rate was typically above 90%; today it is 35%. Additionally, the top capital gains tax rate was 25% in the 1950s and 1960s, 35% in the 1970s; today it is 15%.

This analysis finds no conclusive evidence, however, to substantiate a clear relationship between the 65-year reduction in the top...

  • Treatment requirements imposed on individual firms were seen as the most direct response to pollution problems. In the climate of the early 1970s, and given the lack of regional institutions in place, the desire to minimize compliance costs and use taxes to meet ambient goals was less strongly felt. This is one explanation for the quantity-based regulatory system we have in place to this day. To understand some of the other explanations, it is necessary to describe the characteristics of a tax system in more detail. Before doing so, mention should also be made...

  • Designation as National Statistics should not be interpreted to mean that the statistics are always correct. For example, whilst the Code requires statistics to be produced to a level of accuracy that meets users’ needs, it also recognises that errors can occur – in which case it requires them to be corrected and publicised. Assessment reports will not normally comment further on a set of statistics, for example on their validity as social or economic measures. However, reports may point to such questions if the Authority believes that further research would be desirable. ...

  • Rarely does education seek to measure its health initiatives by assessing health outcomes such as biometrics related to obesity, levels of disease transmission or the prevalence of substance use/misuse. Meanwhile the health sector, not surprisingly sees its role to reduce levels of morbidity and mortality in the community and to access the 5 to 17 year old population group with interventions (a term alien to the education system). These interventions would often be based on information transfer to achieve these goals.

  • Tuberculosis (TB) is not as common as it was many years ago in the United States; consequently, clinicians do not always consider the possibility of TB disease when evaluating patients who have symptoms. As a result, the diagnosis of TB disease may be delayed or even overlooked, and the patient may remain ill and possibly infectious for a prolonged period. Not all persons with TB disease have symptoms; however, most persons with TB disease have one or more symptoms that lead them to seek medical care. All persons with symptoms of TB disease, or either a positive tuberculin skin test (TST)...

Eighty-two (82) percent of them have high-speed Internet according to NFIB’s IT Issues poll. The issue does not appear to be access for most of the remainder.
