  • The percent literate in the SEC is substantially higher than indicated for the population 60 and over in the 1998 census. This largely reflects a process of cohort succession through which persons who were 54-59 in 1998, and thus not part of the 60+ population at that time, aged into the 60 and over population by 2004 while at the same time some persons who were 60 or over in 1998 died, especially among the oldest age groups.

  • Thus, to date, women have not featured prominently as business leaders within the veterinary profession, nor have they been perceived as potential entrepreneurs or innovators. This point is particularly important, because based on what we know about women and business ownership/entrepreneurship generally (see, for example, Brush, 1997; Brush, Carter, Gatewood, Green & Hart, 2001; Henry & Treanor, 2010), it is unlikely that current levels of veterinary entrepreneurship will be maintained or, indeed, increased in a female dominated veterinary sector. ...

  • We have the power to explore the planets and walk the moon. We have the power to coax green from the deserts. We have the power to map the human genome. Yet in the year 2005, in millions of communities in every corner of the globe, people are suffering because those with political power have failed to meet their most basic responsibilities. That failure is seen in the crisis of local health systems that do not work, that exclude the poor, abuse and marginalize women, sow distrust and feed corruption.

  • Their civil rights were disregarded; they were detained and forbidden to speak German. Most had to work in labour camps in inhumane conditions. An estimated 700,000 Germans died due to bad working and living conditions and inadequate medical treatment. In particular, the Stalinism destroyed the independent German culture in Russia. In 1955, the discrimination was subsided, and the ethnic Germans were allowed to change their residence, but not to their former colony areas. The Aussiedler became partly assimilated in the last decades of the USSR....

  • Mistreatment of older people has been identified in facilities for continuing care (such as nursing homes, residential care, hospitals and day care facilities) in almost every country where such institutions exist.

An abusive or neglectful relationship between the older person and their caregiver at home may not necessarily end once the older person has entered institutional care; the abuse may sometimes continue in a new setting.

Enthusiasm for prevention has become prominent in health care reform discussions in Congress and was a theme during the 2008 presidential election. Prevention is seen as the touchstone of a redesigned system focused on improving health outcomes.

The model distinguishes between ìhigh-valueî (mostly white meat) and ìlow-valueî (mostly dark meat) poultry products and simulates the trade flows between eight exporting and importing countries and regions. Removing all barriers simultaneously has larger impact on trade than only removing tariffs and tariff-rate quotas.
