This series focuses on food culture as a way to illuminate the socie-
tal mores and daily life of Americans throughout our history. These
volumes are meant to complement history studies at the high school
level on up. In addition, Food Studies is a burgeoning field, and food
enthusiasts and food scholars will find much to mine here. The series
is comprehensive, with the first volume covering American Indian
food and the following volumes each covering an era or eras from
Colonial times until today. Regional and group differences are dis-
cussed as appropriate....
In recent years, thanks to the investments of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development
(Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development), Research Center of Shanxi goats and rabbits made a number of successful research
traditional breeding, selection and use of goat milk and goat meat as Bach Thao,
Indian goats (Barbary, and Beetal Jumnapary) and hybrid goats (meat, milk). This work AHS
with small farmers in the highlands where farmers are very poor in knowledge and
techniques, lack of capital for production and poor management skills....
Climatology, the study of climate, is no longer regarded as a single discipline that treats climate as something that fluctuates only within the unchanging boundaries described by historical statistics. The field has recognized that climate is something that changes continually under the influence of physical and biological forces and so, cannot be understood in isolation but rather, is one that includes diverse scientific disciplines that play their role in understanding a highly complex coupled "whole system" that is the earth's climate. ...
This book highlights methodological approaches for the economics of sustainable
development and brings together recent empirical work done in India, especially by
Dr. Surender Kumar and Dr. Shunsuke Managi. Various chapters in this book use
Indian data to show the very wide applicability of methodologies in the theory of
production for dealing with many empirical issues of environmentally sustainable
development in a developing country.
There is one reported proposed entry – of
Schroder Investment Management through
the acquisition of a significant minority stake
in an existing AMCor trust company and also
one reported proposed exit, viz. Fidelity
This growth serves to demonstrate that,
at a fundamental level, there are many
significant global and local players that
consider the Indian mutual fund industry
to be attractive. It is necessary to
understand the mix of investors, distributors,
types and number of schemes as factors that
contribute to a sustainable and profitable
Our empirical analysis of the cross-country determinants of bank fees is made
possible by the availability of a unique dataset on bank fee levels in five Central
European countries: Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.
The structure of our dataset enables us to cope with heterogeneity and cross-
subsidization by employing a representative fee index instead of using variables
associated with individual fees.
The socio-geographic region formed by these countries has several important
advantages for our purposes.
Where an acquisition exceeds the specified threshold or there is a change in control of a listed
company, the acquirer must provide an exit opportunity to the shareholders through a timely
public offer with appropriate disclosures. In certain acquisitions, such as an inter se transfer of
shares between the promoter, Indian promoter and foreign collaborator, pursuant to a scheme of
arrangement/amalgamation, no open offer is required, subject to disclosures being made.
The government can order the amalgamation of two or more companies if this is in the public
A competitive partial-equilibrium spatial model with heterogeneous goods is constructed
to evaluate effects of the removal of tariffs, tariff-rate quotas, and sanitary regulations on
world poultry trade. 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
Stories from tribes across the North American continent show both the divergent philsophies, as well as the common ground. The editors have wonderfully resisted any urge to edit these stories. Each chapter opens with an overview provided by Erdoes and Ortiz. There are occasional editorial explanations at the ends of stories. They should expecially be applauded for including stories with humor.
Each chapter opens with an overview provided by Erdoes and Ortiz. There are occasional editorial explanations at the ends of stories. They should expecially be applauded for including stories with humor. As someone with Indian ancestry, but not a traditional Indian upbringing, I enjoyed the experience of spiritual concordance with the basic philosophies, no matter which tribe or region of the country was being presented. The book is easily readable by most age groups; parents of younger children could read these as entertainment and even bed-tiime stories.
Indian culture promotes universal marriage. Of importance to ARH is the traditional young marriage age
of girls—referred to as early marriage. The national average age at marriage for women in India is 16.4
years, although there are vast regional variations. Most northern and north-eastern states, as well as
Tamil Nadu and Kerala in the south and Goa in the west, have a higher age at marriage, ranging from
ages 18–22. The majority of the states in the western, central, and eastern parts of India reported an
average age at marriage similar to...
Bank of America Merrill Lynch operates an active carbon market
services business that provides risk management, market access
and liquidity, and structured finance to a variety of corporate
clients looking to offset carbon emissions or manage their
In 2008, we engineered a ground-breaking transaction to
preserve a 750,000-hectare refuge in the Aceh province of
Indonesia, an ecologically sensitive region recovering from the
Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004.
Their hardened hooves
and lighter bones enable them to endure long migrations. These adaptive attributes have
facilitated their importation and spread by Indian and Arabian merchants across the Red
Sea to the drier agro-ecological regions of the Horn of Africa (Loftus and Cunningham
2000). The Large East African Zebu cattle breeds, like the present-day Boran of Ethiopia,
Kenya and Somalia, and the Butana and Kenana of the Sudan have very similar
morphological characteristics to that of the zebu breeds of Asia. They are maintained by
mainly pastoral communities in the Horn of Africa....
Mangalore coast is a stretch of about 22 Kms at the western part of the Western Ghats of the Indian peninsula. This
area is receiving huge quantity of pollution load from the major industries and factories located nearby. This pollution
load is discharged into the sea either directly or through the major west flowing rivers of the region, Nethravathi and
Gurupura. The pollution load includes runoff of the sediment, waste from oil refineries, nutrients and pesticides, iron
ore residues from the nearby iron are company and chemicals from the chemical factory from the point source.
So then you may think that the population-poverty-resource nexus would be a focus of
attention among development economists. If so, you would be wrong. Even in studies on the
semi-arid regions of sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian sub-continent (poverty-ridden land
masses, inhabited by some 2 billion people and experiencing the largest additions ever known
to their population; Tables 1-2), the nexus is largely absent. For example,Birdsall (1988),Kelley
(1988) and Schultz (1988) are authoritative surveys by economic demographers on population
growth in poor countries.
During the centuries which had elapsed since the entry of the Spaniards and Portuguese into these regions an
extraordinary fusion of races had taken place. White, red, and black had mingled to such an extent that the
bulk of the settled population became half-caste. Only in the more temperate regions of the far north and
south, where the aborigines were comparatively few or had disappeared altogether, did the whites remain
racially distinct. Socially the Indian and the negro counted for little.
