  • Real estate professionals attending Ernst & Young’s conference were almost equally split in their views of the Eurozone’s future.

  • Dr. Sharon Rounds, the editor for this series who invited us to write a book on rare lung diseases, developed the idea after attending the 2004 Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) Foundation annual research meeting. She was a keynote speaker at that event (during her tenure as the president of the American Thoracic Society) and was witness to the power of patient advocacy and the mission-based scientific effort that had brought this rare disease of women from obscurity to clinical trials with targeted molecular therapies in under a decade.

  • Performance measures other than earnings are also used in contracts, particularly in compensation contracts. For example, approximately 20% of bonus determination is based on individual and nonfinancial measures such as product quality (see Holthausen, Larcker and Sloan, 1995, p. 36). And stock-price-based compensation (e.g. stock option plans) is also used to incent managers. To that extent, one wouldn't expect earnings to necessarily have all the characteristics of an ideal performance measure for compensation purposes.

  • Calculation of disposal costs may involve a set of tasks. It may be necessary to calculate material flows (an engineering exercise) from the plant's production process so that wastes can be desegregated and tracked. These material flows will then have to be translated into disposal costs. This calculation can be complex. Consider the issues that arise if the waste is destined for landfill disposal. First, there will be marginal disposal costs associated with transport of the waste. Second, the waste's contribution to landfill costs must be calculated.

  • Now that we know sitting closer than 3.16 PH reveals 2K artifacts, how close do people actually sit in movie auditoriums? The historical trend has been to sit ever closer. 1920s—1940s. In comparison to today’s theatrical experience, the old movie palaces had perceptually smaller screens and longer seating distances. You can think of the classic theater as a long rectangle with the screen on the short side. Seating distances ranged from 8 PH in the back to 2.7 PH in the front. While today’s audiences might find this presentation puny and unimpressive, it was well...

  • The first type of event is similar to a credit rating action, i.e. it relates to an individual country. The informed public or other market participants are often able to anticipate the decision or action taken. Thus, at the date of the decision or action hardly any new information regarding the country itself may be revealed. After it has been taken, however, it is assumed to have a more lasting impact on the pricing of bonds issued by the agent.

  • The Agile family of development methodologies was born out of a belief that an approach more grounded in human reality would yield better results. Agile emphasizes building working software that people can get hands on with quickly, versus spending a lot of time writing specifications up front. Agile focuses on small, cross-functional teams empowered to make decisions, versus big hierarchies and compartmentalization by function, and Agile focuses on rapid iteration, with as much customer input along the way as possible.

  • In his exchange, Shakespeare reminds us that “suffering” in this sense is vital to the intense experience of being in love. It is interesting to note that a recurring theme across Shakespeare’s plays is the idea that power- ful forces beyond our control shape our lives. Whether the mischievous fairies in “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” or the tension between the Capulets and Montagues in “Romeo and Juliet,” forces shape the lives of Shakespeare’s characters and often seem impervious to reason and the best laid plans. In fact, one ...

  • Weishang Qu, head of modelling at the Millennium Institute, Washington DC, has examined the World Bank’s new sustainability indicators, including genuine savings, and found that they “are very much GDP dependent”. As genuine savings calculations start with GDP figures before adding and subtracting certain values, they will tend to justify increasing real GDP/economic growth as the central measure of development/progress. 22 Nations with strongly positive GDP are far less likely to obtain a weak or negative genuine savings result.

  • Memex, with links and comments holding a central role, served as our blueprint for MyLifeBits. Faced with folders full of documents, messages, phone calls, photos, songs, etc., with inherent or potential metadata such as author, camera, comments, location, and time, we needed a framework to hold and link all of these objects in the web-like and almost arbitrary fashion that Bush described. We deemed search to be the most critical requirement. Furthermore, we realized that metadata are often a key part of user recall, e.g.

  • The Agrarian type applies to 205 regions, 26% of land area and 34% of agricultural area. This group’s share of population is smaller, at 24%, and its share of non-urban GDP only a little over half that, at 13%. The Diversified (Market Services) group has fewer regions (149), and just 17% of area, but accounts for a rather larger share of population (23%). At the same time it generates a much greater share of (non-urban) GPD, at 27%. Finally the Diversified (Secondary) group contains 80 regions, and accounts for 17% of total area, and 21% of agricultural area....

They are going to carefully check your ideas, your research, and your teaching experience. That’s all there is to it. But one cannot do frontier research if one doesn’t know what the frontier is! And for that, the material you learn in the first year is important. Take your time to learn it properly. You’ll see that it more than makes up in the...

  • Countries around the world are adopting the practice of using waste products and other alternatives to replace fossil fuels in cement manufacturing. Industrialized countries have over 20 years of successful experience (GTZ and Holcim 2006). The Netherlands and Switzerland, with respective national substitution rates of 83% and 48%, are world leaders in this practice (Cement Sustainability Initiative 2005). In the US, it is common for cement plants to derive 20-70% of their energy needs from alternative fuels (Portland Cement Association 2006).

  • The argument that pension funds should only assume a risk-free rate of return in assessing pension fund adequacy ignores the distinction between governmental units, which need be little concerned over the timing of market fluctuations, and individual investors, who must be very sensitive to market timing. This argument also fails to recognize the fact that over a long period, future stock returns are inversely related to current price-to-earnings (PE) ratios.
