  • The concept of paying interest on a loan appears to be widely understood; indeed in Hungary 95% of respondents gave a correct response. The question requires the simplest possible arithmetic, but records an open ended response to minimise the possibility that people guess the correct answer.

  • First, clinicians have not been able to grasp the true conditions under which neuroprotection is possible.

Sometimes the neuroprotective treatment was administered one day after stroke onset, an obvious nonsense that was not justified by animal data.

  • Examples of duct dependent circulations include critical coarctation of the aorta (duct dependent systemic circulation) or pulmonary atresia (duct dependent pulmonary circulation). In critical coarctation there is extreme narrowing of the aorta just where the arterial duct joins the aorta, and blood supply to the lower half of the body is only possible if it passes from the pulmonary artery to the descending aorta via the duct. In pulmonary atresia, the only blood supply to the lungs is that which passes from the aorta to the pulmonary artery via the duct.

In some rural areas of the developing world prone to natural disasters, these have contributed to a dramatic reduction of the loss of lives in cases of catastrophes in recent years (Bangladesh is a case in point). Moreover, low-cost initiatives which provide some element of “proofing” against natural disasters can lessen the impact of such events on the poor.
