This study examines material issues affecting the quality of teaching and learning in our schools, both within and external to the classroom environment. The findings reveal significant disparities in conditions, both within and between provinces.

This book is written in the belief that the tenets and teachings of economics are vital to an
insightful analysis of the broad spectrum of issues affecting commercial uses of the Internet and the next-generation information infrastructure. Our digital future is being decided on the Internet, where prototypical products and services have been test-driven by an odd collection of individuals. Just a few years ago, commercial uses of this somewhat chaotic and decentralized network of networks seemed highly unrealistic.
“Risk concentrations are arguably the single most important cause of major problems
in banks”.1 On the one hand, dealing with concentration risk is important for
the survival of individual banks; therefore, banks should be interested in a proper
management of risk concentrations on their own. On the other hand, the Basel
Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) has found that nine out of the thirteen
analyzed banking crises were affected by risk concentrations,2 which shows that
this issue is important for the stability of the whole banking system.

Water quality is one of the key factors affecting the environmental health of the Mekong river
system. As the livelihoods of most of the 60 million people who live in the Lower Mekong
Basin (LMB) wholly or partly depend on aquatic resources, the environmental health of the
river is a major concern to the governments of the countries in the basin. In 1985, the Mekong
River Commission (MRC) established the Water Quality Monitoring Network (WQMN)
to provide an ongoing record of the water quality of the river, its major tributaries, and the
Rapidly changing field:

Access to safe drinking water and sanitation is a basic necessity. However, such access is highly
variable around the world and in particular in Africa, Asia and South America. Much progress still
remains to be made in infrastructure improvements and poverty reduction. A recent World Bank
report, for example, noted that more than 100 million people in the Latin American region alone
lack access to potable water and adequate sanitation systems.
Compounding the issue of water availability is contamination of water supplies and the lack of
wastewater treatment facilities.
Thyroid and parathyroid diseases are among the most frequent conditions we have to
deal with in a clinical setting. Both nodular and autoimmune diseases affecting these
glands have increased remarkably over the past decades. The widespread use of crosssectional
imaging and the introduction of neck ultrasonography have led to a thyroid
nodule epidemics and the diagnostic of neck lesions in half of the population.
Consequently, many patients with microscopic papillary thyroid cancers of uncertain
clinical significance are submitted to surgeries that may, perhaps, be unnecessary....
As a result of the gloomy economic climate in Europe brought about by the
ongoing crisis affecting all enterprises (particularly SMEs) in France, the French
government has recently decided to create different poles of innovation and
research associated to the activities of enterprises. The objective is to propose new
ideas for helping these enterprises to be more efficient and able to resist the threat
to their existence from globalisation.
One of the difficulties of these enterprises is that they find it difficult to penetrate
the European market and export their products.
Planning any event is difficult. Planning for the potential risks and hazards associated with
an event is even more difficult but essential to the event’s success. If you want those who
attend an event to have positive memories of it, you need to keep several things in mind.
This chapter covers the issues that you should address in the very early stages of planning
or even when you are discussing promoting or sponsoring such an event. Before you
schedule the event, you should consider the scope of the event or mass gathering, the risks

first discipline is the exploratory of Thai mutual funds via descriptive study or fact finding which
indicates Thai mutual funds structure in terms of product concentration and the competitive situation as

It offers case studies that demonstrate the need for a reinvigorated rural sociology. Tackling contentious issues, it presents a model for rural sociology and assesses its role in society.From fox-hunting to farming, the vigour with which rural activities and living are defended overturns received notions of a sleepy and complacent countryside. Alongside these developments, the rise of the organic food movement has helped to revitalize...
Retrograde dissociative amnesia may sometimes present as an episodic-autobiographical
block, which may encompass the whole past life. Affected patients otherwise have largely
preserved semantic memories; they can read, write, calculate and know how to behave in
Economic literature often discusses that in the area of access to finance for SMEs, a market
imperfection/failure is not only present during a deep recession but also on an ongoing basis as a
fundamental structural issue. The reasons for the market failure relate to insufficient supply of
capital (debt or equity) and inadequacies on the demand side.
Epilepsy is one of the most common serious primary brain disorders, affecting 40 million
people worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), epilepsy accounts
for 1% of the Global Burden of Disease, equivalent to lung cancer in men and to breast cancer
in women. It is not surprising, therefore, that 10 to 20 textbooks on epilepsy are published
