A material weakness is a condition in which the design or operation of one or more of the internal control
components does not reduce to a relatively low level the risk that misstatements in amounts that would be
material in relation to the basic financial statements being audited may occur and not be detected within a
timely period by employees in the normal course of performing their assigned functions.
The sample of M&As is collected from the Securities Data Corporation’s (SDC) US Mergers
and Acquisitions Database. We select both completed and withdrawn domestic M&As with
announcement dates between 1980 and 2003, and require both the acquirer and the target to be
public firms. We include only acquisitions in which the acquiring firms control less than 50% of
the shares of the target firms before acquisition announcements.

This book is a multidisciplinary volume, comprising of four parts. After
a short introduction by the editors, outlining the theme of the book,
Santarelli, a skilful scholar of legal history, deals with the common origin
of Islamic and Western traditions in commercial and banking transactions,
in a period in which Italian merchants and their organizations had been at
the forefront of the post- medieval renaissance in trade and law (Part I).
In Part II Gian Maria Piccinelli, Frank Vogel, Muhammad Fahim
Khan and the young Valentino Cattelan present the main features of

Your Marketing major will cover all the essential
components of marketing including consumer behaviour,
marketing management, strategy, research and analysis.
You’ll explore the strengths and weaknesses of many of the
theories on which the conventional approach to marketing
is based. You’ll also discover that marketing is not about
routinely applying a standard set of techniques but instead
about using knowledge and experience to give each issue
its own specific strategy.
My beautiful nun had not spoken to me, and I was glad of it, for I was so astonished, so completely under the
spell of her beauty, that I might have given her a very poor opinion of my intelligence by the rambling
answers which I should very likely have given to her questions. I knew her to be certain that she had not to
fear the humiliation of a refusal from me, but I admired her courage in running the risk of it in her position. I
could hardly understand her boldness, and I could not conceive how she contrived to enjoy so...

The acts of lawlessness committed on September 11, 2001 were swiftly
followed by a ‘war on terror’. This book sets out the essential features
of the international legal framework against which the 9/11 attacks and
the lawfulness of measures taken in response thereto fall to be assessed.
It addresses, in an accessible manner, the relevant law in relation to:
‘terrorism’, questions as to ‘responsibility’ for it, the criminal law frame-
work, lawfulconstraints on the use of force, the humanitarian law that
governs in armed conﬂict, and international human rights law.
The mark of our time is its revulsion against imposed
patterns. We are suddenly eager to have things and people declare
their beings totally. There is a deep faith to be found in this new
attitude— a faith that concerns the ultimate harmony of all being.
Such is the faith in which this book has been written. It explores the
contours of our own extended beings in our technologies, seeking
the principle of intelligibility in each of them. In the full confidence
that it is possible to win an understanding of these forms that will
bring them into orderly...
The development of a strategy involves the selection of a coherent set of measures which,
taken together, will reduce the emissions of transport pollutants. These measures can be
technology-oriented, targeting the vehicles and fuels used and maintenance practices within the
sector, or they can be behavioural, seeking to reduce (or prevent increases in) the amount of
activity of the most polluting vehicles.
"The United States of America"! It was in the Declaration of Independence that this name was first and
formally proclaimed to the world, and to maintain its verity the war of the Revolution was fought. Americans
like to think that they were then assuming "among the Powers of the Earth the equal and independent Station
to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them"; and, in view of their subsequent marvelous
development, they are inclined to add that it must have been before an expectant world.
Mental health laws exist in many countries to regulate the involuntary detention
and treatment of individuals with serious mental illnesses. ‘Rights-based legal-
ism’ is a term used to describe mental health laws that refer to the rights of
individuals with mental illnesses somewhere in their provisions. The advent of
the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities makes
it timely to rethink the way in which the rights of individuals to autonomy and
liberty are balanced against state interests in protecting individuals from harm to
self or others....
The Tosa Maru brought us again into Shanghai March 20th, just in time for the first letters from home. A ricksha man carried us and our heavy valise at a smart trot from the dock to the Astor House more than a mile, for 8.6 cents, U. S. currency, and more than the conventional price for the service rendered. On our way we passed several loaded carryalls of the type seen in Fig. 61, on which women were riding for a fare one-tenth that we had paid, but at a slower pace and with many a jolt.
The ringing chorus...
He is perhaps able to decipher an English text with tolerable accuracy; he is more or less able to translate into classical English the conventional sentences which form the “exercises” contained in his “English Course”; the range of his vocabulary and the extent of his knowledge of classical grammar are such as have enabled him to gain sufficient marks to pass some examination. He may even have paid some attention to the “conversational” side, and have satisfied his teacher as to his capacities for giving oral answers to the set questions contained in his text-book.
Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? Why do drug dealers still live with their moms? How much do parents really matter? What kind of impact did Roe v. Wade have on violent crime?
These may not sound like typical questions for an economist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much heralded scholar who studies the stuff and riddles of everyday life-;from cheating and crime to sports and child rearing-;and whose conclusions regularly turn the conventional wisdom on its head....
