The model presented is also related to the literature in limited risk sharing and participation
constraints (Kehoe and Levine (1993), Kocherlakota (1996) and Zhang (1997)). More recently,
Alvarez and Jermann (2000, 2001) showed that these participation constraints can be modelled as
endogenous portfolio constraints, which they denote solvency constraints. Besides extending this
strand of the literature for the case of heterogeneous beliefs, I solve this problem in continuous time
for the rst time, thus generalizing it to the case of in nite possible states.

Needles: Standard disposable 22-24 gauge 1-1½-inch needles are used for plain FNAC.
The length and caliber of the needle should fit the size, depth, location and the consistency
of the target. For small subcutaneous lesions, one-inch 23-gauge needle is ideal while for a
deep-seated breast lesion, longer and larger needle is required. Finer needles are also
recommended for children, and for vascular organs like thyroid.
Syringes: Standard disposable plastic syringes of 10ml are used. Syringe should be of good
quality and should produce good negative pressure.
In all regions, knowledge of any method of contraception is high among young women and nearly
universal among young men. However, knowledge of multiple methods is lower among young women
and men in sub-Saharan Africa than their counterparts in other regions. Current use of modern
contraception among married youth is lowest in sub-Saharan Africa. Overall, although sexually active,
unmarried young women are more likely to use modern contraceptive methods, they also have higher
levels of unmet need for contraception compared to currently married young women.
Does poor reproductive health prevent poor women
from escaping poverty? Despite the plethora of survey
data showing that poor households tend to be larger
and that poor women tend to have higher rates of fer-
tility, experts have debated whether these conditions
cause poverty or are symptoms of poverty.
The use of individuals’ credit histories to predict the risk of future loss has become a
common practice among automobile and homeowners insurers. The practice has proven to
be controversial not only because of concerns about how reliably credit scores may predict
risk. Many industry professionals, policymakers, and consumer groups have expressed
concern that the practice may pose a significant barrier to economically vulnerable segments
of the population in obtaining affordable automobile and homeowners coverage.
With a view to drafting an audit manual for the Co-operation Department a
Committee consisting of 6 (six) members headed by Sri K. B. Choudhury, DRCS (TCS Gr. II)
was formed. The committee studied the departmental circulars and other relevant
instructions in connection with the audit of accounts of Co-operatives. Necessary papers,
documents etc. regarding audit of accounts and audit manual of different States were
collected and consulted by the Committee to give the present shape of the Co-operative
There is another aspect of uncertainty that surfaces as a potential threat to con-
sistent supply and that is the "food versus industrial" use of crops in the future.
One side of the debate is the shortage of supply theory. "How can agriculture
feed a burgeoning population and supply raw materials for consumer goods?"
"Won't crops used for feed-stocks be redirected to the food supply in times of
world famine or drought?" Good questions. However, the implied assumption
is that we have a choice.
Classifying travel behavior and segmentation becomes increasingly more difficult as modern travelers
combine pleasure with business, in order to take time and cost advantage. There are therefore
endless variations between the two principle classifications of travel activities, i.e. business and leisure
trips. However, leisure trips may include elements, characteristics and motivations of business travel
and vice versa. Incentive travelling, extended conference stays and business meetings during leisure
travel makes the distinction between the two categories increasingly blurred.
nvironment is not my creation; it is the creation. I do not constitute it;
it has constituted me; and now it seems arrogant and myopic to speak of
foreground and background, of what I frame on my horizons. Environment
is the ground of my being, and we can remove the 'my' because environment
is the common ground of all being.
Landscape appreciation requires stretching environment into Environment.
My mother could appreciate her Alabama lived environment; she did not need
science to do that. But she could appreciate only her native range sector, a
This report therefore proposes a regulatory system
based on the principle that individuals and
organisations must not act in a way where the
purpose or effect is to promote an unhealthy food
product to individuals under the age of 16. This
should be a statutory system enshrined in law, not
a voluntary industry code. The proposed law
prohibits all marketing whose purpose or effect is
to promote unhealthy food to children.
However, these guidelines do not address the impact of drilling techniques on the
collection of a representative VOC sample. Therefore, site/program QAPPs and SAPs
should address the impact of all collection techniques on sample integrity and select
those appropriate for the project data quality objectives (DQOs).
The split table deﬁnes a mapping of values to a set of destination processes. Gamma uses three different
types of split tables depending on the type of operation being performed [DEWI86]. As an example of one form of
split table, consider the use of the split table shown in Figure 4 in conjunction with the execution of a join operation
using 4 processors. Each process producing tuples for the join will apply a hash function to the join attribute of each
output tuple to produce a value between 0 and 3. This value is then used as an index into the split table to...
But we too will crumble, in the end. All political power comes to pass. Power cannot be
stored forever, not even in plutonium. Nor, in the end and rendering unto Caesar, can there be
any permanent money as a store of value over any significant time. This is the Law of the
Inevitable Ephemerality of the Confederate Dollar.
All gold turns biblically to dross; all Rhodesian dollars become Zimbabwean; all Money
Fiats are Ford Edsels. The only issue is when. Power sharing always has financial costs. The
economic rewards are ever temporary. Power and money are always Hobbesian:...
By comparison, the independent design profession in France is relatively new, with
53% of organisations operating for fewer than 10 years. The sector is dominated by
a small number of large agencies. Automotive, aerospace and engineering
companies tend to use in-house designers whereas luxury companies tend to use
international agencies for brand development and corporate communications.
The Swedish design sector has an estimated total of 11,199 companies, with many
operating as sole-traders.
The creation of Trichet bonds will result in various advantages both in comparison to the present
unstable situation and other proposed solutions. First, the long duration of Trichet bonds will
eliminate the immediate crisis caused by short term expiration of significant amounts of debt
which is looming over Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and possibly other EU countries. Second,
the guarantee of the principal with the zero-coupon ECB bond collateral increases the quality of
the Trichet Bonds compared to existing sovereign debt.
The Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) has the
power to hear tenancy disputes. If the RTA cannot help you resolve a
bond dispute, it will issue a Notice of Unresolved Dispute.
For bond disputes the person who receives a Notice of Unresolved
Dispute has seven days in which to apply to the Tribunal for a hearing
and notify the RTA. If the person does not apply to the Tribunal and
notify the RTA within seven days, the RTA will release the bond to the
other party, according to the fi rst Refund of Rental Bond form they
Thirty-nine percent of schools that participated in the Direct Loan
Program in 2001-02 also participated in FFELP and provided a number of
reasons for doing so. Some schools participated in FFELP, in addition to
the Direct Loan Program, to provide PLUS loans to parents. Some financial
aid officials reported that parents receive better terms for PLUS loans
through FFELP. For 57 percent of schools that participated in both loan
programs, maintaining relationships with lenders was an extremely or very
important factor in influencing this decision.
The relationship between macroeconomic variables and stock market returns
is, by now, well-documented in the literature. However, a void in the literature
relates to examining the cointegration between macroeconomic variables and
stock market’s sector indices rather than the composite index. Thus in this
paper we examine the long-term equilibrium relationships between selected
macroeconomic variables and the Singapore stock market index (STI), as well
as with various Singapore Exchange Sector indices—the ﬁnance index, the
property index, and the hotel index.
