There was a time of optimism and progress in the 1960s, when there was greater hope for a
braver new world, and for progressive international ideas. Colonies blessed with natural
resources were becoming nations. The locals of co-operation and sharing seemed to be
seriously pursued. Paradoxically, the 1970s slid slowly into moods of reaction and isolation
while at the same time a series of UN conferences offered hope for greater co-operation on

The phenomenon of globalization has captured the popular imagination in
the last decade or so. This is reflected in numerous books published on this
topic from various academic disciplines and across philosophical discourses.
In discussing the various facets of globalization, almost all discourses consider
the role of business and/or multinational corporations to be very salient
in either enhancing this phenomenon or managing the process of globalization.
What is speed in fighting? Is it the velocity of your hands, feet and body movement? Or are there other, prevalent essentials in a good fighter? What is a good fighter? A good fighter is one who can hit his opponent quicker, harder, without much perceptible effort, and yet avoid being hit. He doesn't only possess a pair of fast hands and feet and quick body movement, but he has other qualities such as non-telegraphic moves, good coordination, perfect balance and keen awareness. Although some people are endowed with a few of these qualities, most of these attributes are developed...
Individual differences that have consequences for work behaviors (e.g., job performance)
are of great concern for organizations, both public and private. General
mental ability has been a popular, although much debated, construct in Industrial,
Work, and Organizational (IWO) Psychology for almost 100 years. Individuals
differ on their endowments of a critical variable—intelligence—and differences
on this variable have consequences for life outcomes.
The AIFM Directive’s geographic impact will stretch beyond the EU; for example, due to the additional eligibility conditions for third-country AIF jurisdictions. Third-country jurisdictions wishing to ensure that their alternative funds can be actively marketed in the EU will need to carefully review their legal and regulatory framework in relation to AIFM supervision and be prepared to implement international cooperation arrangements for the purpose of systemic risk oversight and tax cooperation with relevant EU Member States.
Indeed, these tough times can be seen as an opportunity for the industry to reinvent
itself. Perhaps, the industry has moved beyond the first phase, in which it established
itself as a part and parcel of the investment matrix. The industry needs to evolve again
to strengthen its position and proposition. It is probably time to question established
wisdom and explore alternatives.
In the present situation, there may be no single ‘silver bullet’ solution, but it will
require a multitude of initiatives to be taken across the entire spectrum of activities of a
The term „structured product‟ is the name given to an
investment product that provides a return that is pre-
determined with reference to the performance of one or
more underlying markets. The performance of a structured
product is therefore based only on the performance of this
underlying product and not on the discretion of the product
provider. Most often the product relies on the use of
derivatives to generate the return, and contains downside
protection or guarantees of some form via options.
The philosophy of harnessing loyal customers as part of the sales and marketing team has increasingly
become a driver of many industrial firms’ marketing and sales efforts. Due to the perceived high risk faced
by potential buyers, companies selling complex solutions to industrial buyers and governmental institutions
need to increase their credibility through customer references (e.g., Windahl et al., 2004; Salminen and
Möller, 2006; Veres, 2009).
The level of costs will vary substantially between the alternative industry segments, and also between individual managers in each segment. It will also depend on the marketing route used by the AIFMs (passport or PPR), especially for non-EU AIFMs. The one-off and ongoing compliance costs for non-EU AIFMs using the PPR route will be much lower than those of non-EU AIFMs using the passporting route and for EU AIFMs, whatever the route. The costs therefore need to be carefully analyzed on a case-by-case basis.
The nutritional knowledge and practical skills of small scale farm holders must be improved in
order to ensure that PNG can take advantage of the benefits of aquaculture. An increase in this
knowledge base will also directly benefit other agricultural industries reliant on the feeding of
stock such as the rapidly expanding poultry industry. These needs have been addressed in a three
day Feed Manufacturing Workshop funded by the Australian Centre for International
Agricultural Research (ACIAR).
Over the past 15 years, the exchange industry has been in a state of continued flux. Exchanges have
demutualised and in most cases become listed, they have consolidated through mergers and acquisitions,
and they have become subject to stiff competition from a host of new alternative trading venues. In other
words, stock exchanges have become engaged in an intensified competition and are refashioning
themselves to meet the challenge.
Each of the four agencies appointed representatives to the Working Group, which was
formally convened with an initial meeting on May 5, 2009. As the first phase of preparing a
report to Congress, the Working Group has developed a set of recommendations for
proposed voluntary nutrition principles to guide industry self-regulatory efforts to improve
the nutritional profile of foods that are most heavily marketed to children. The
recommendations set forth below include the proposed nutrition principles.
Besides these, "Imagine the psychological impact upon a foe when encountering squads of
seemingly invincible warriors protected by armor and endowed with superhuman
capabilities, such as the ability to leap over 20-foot walls, " said Ned Thomas, the director of
Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies (ISN) (Wakefield, 2002). Another use of exoskeletons
is that they could help integrate women into combat situations.
However, in 1978, China differed from the Soviet Union in its resource
endowment and economic structure. China was poor, and agriculture remained the
dominant economic activity. Peasants suffered from high rates of under-employment and
vulnerability to income shocks. In contrast to the Soviet Union’s large, vertically-
integrated state enterprises, Chinese industrial output was produced in relatively smaller
state firms as well as in small collectives. Infrastructure was weak, and there was little
capacity to move commodities between provinces.
Adaptation to extreme environments affects the stability and catalytic effi-ciency of enzymes, often endowing them with great industrial potential.
We compared the environmental adaptation of the secreted endonuclease
I from the cold-adapted marine fish pathogenVibrio salmonicida(VsEndA)
and the human pathogen Vibrio cholerae (VcEndA).
