Huang, Yen and Lu (Chapter 18) review the role of SPECT in the diagnosis of
idiopathic Parkinson’s disease and its differentiation from other conditions
characterised by parkinsonisms such as dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) and
vascular parkinsonism. Accurate diagnosis is clearly critical for treatment and
prognosis, and the authors provide a very useful overview of recent developments in
dopamine transporter imaging which have led to important advances in this area.
Health care workers have the opportunity and the obligation to identify, treat, and
educate women who are being abused. Health care institutions can make significant
contributions to addressing violence against women by supporting clinicians and clients.
Developing and institutionalizing national health-sector policies, protocols, and norms
about violence call attention to the problem of gender-based violence, and help ensure
quality care for survivors of abuse.
This Outlook issue focuses on the reproductive health consequences of violence
This book has been written to fill a need for a basic but
comprehensive text dealing with all aspects of paediatric
ENT. It is aimed at trainees in our specialties who are
developing an interest in the paediatric aspects of their
work, at established ENT surgeons and audiologists who
have decided to specialise in this most enjoyable subspecialty,
or who wish to know more about paediatric ENT,
and as a work of reference for those who encounter particular
problems in their paediatric patients.
Myocarditis is a clinical syndrome characterized by inflammation of myocardium. It can be
produced by a myriad of etiologies including infectious, autoimmune, myocardial toxins,
hypersensitivity reactions and physical agents. Virtually any infectious agent can produce
myocardial inflammation and injury. Human myocarditis is most frequently caused by viral
infection. Ongoing viral infection, myocardial destruction, and adverse remodeling can lead
to persistent ventricular dysfunction and dilated cardiomyopathy.
Open Access publishing has finally become available to Thoracic Surgery. This is a
rather simple publishing concept that removes the charges and the need for
compulsory subscription. This therefore enables readers worldwide to broaden their
access to scientific publications online and, best of all, for free. The numbers are
staggering. As I was writing this Preface, I went to the publisher’s web site and found
the following: 3,8 million downloads for all books published, championed by Electrical
Engineering (29,2%) whereas Medicine is making its way up (13,9%).

This book covers selected topics in Otolaryngology, providing a journey into the
advancements in various aspects of the field. A collection of manuscripts of this nature
involves extensive exposure and accumulation of knowledge from many experienced
teaches over many years. It covers both basic and clinical concepts of otolaryngology.
Each author contributed his/her own perspectives on each topic adding his/her own
theories, future trends and research findings.
Property transactions data for private real estate portfolio managers are obtained from the
National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries (NCREIF), which collects transaction-level
data for for private entities (primarily pension funds). For a private pension fund, having one’s
properties be part of NCREIF’s portfolio is generally considered highly desirable, in that this gives
the fund prestige.
A great supplement to your studies is our field trip
programme. You’ll visit a wide range of properties owned,
occupied or operated by individuals or organisations.
This is an important addition to your study of property
management, valuation and investment.
We will arrange business and professional contacts for
you during studies. This will expose you to operating
procedures, research facilities and employment
opportunities. Practical assignments are organised to
provide you with the appropriate professional skills.

Environmental statements should consider the direct and cumulative impacts of proposed offshoreinstallations,both within the turbine array and on the wider seabed environment.This should include the construction of turbines and meteorological mastsand their foundations;scour protection;burial andarmouring of cables on the site and connection to the shore;and potential hydrological or sedimenttransport effects.The impact assessment of associatedconstruction works should include onshore,inter-tidaland offshore works,as sensitive archaeological sitesmay occur in all these locations.
Cost competition between state regulators and
the OCC, and among state regulators themselves,
has been fueled by two important structural
changes that have occurred in the banking indus-
try over the past two decades. The number of
bank charters has declined, largely because of
increased bank merger and consolidation activity,
and the size and complexity of banking organiza-
tions has increased.
The first change—a decline in the number of
charters—means that the OCC and state regula-
tors are competing for a declining member base.
I’ll wager that no one reading this essay knows (or perhaps wants to know) the author of
the ridiculous sentence in its title. Since the publication of Roland Barthes’s “Death of the
Author” 40 years ago, many readers have acquired a seasoned skepticism about the authority
and dependability of the authorial voice.1 Although Barthes suggests that the emergence
of the reader comes at the expense of the author, authors (and artists) did not die.
The maternity leave is made up of 3 months (12 weeks) under the Kenya Employment Act 2007. A
female employee is entitled to three months maternity leave with full pay and immediately on
expiry of maternity leave before resuming her duties she may proceed to annual leave and/or sick
leave with the consent of the employer; compassionate leave; or any other leave. A male
employee is entitled to 10 working days (2 weeks) paternity leave to support their spouses during
pregnancy or breastfeeding.

We started the treatment by giving alpha-blocker. His PSA at first
visit was 4.20 ng/mL, and became slightly elevated to 5.47 ng/mL after two months.
Transrectal prostate biopsy revealed prostate cancer confined in the right lobe. Gleason
scores were 6 (3 + 3) in two out of 14 cores. He underwent standard TURP of the transition
and central zone, and then we made a deeper resection of the peripheral zone of the right
lobe. The operation took 80 minutes with no blood transfusion and water intoxication, and
the resected weight was 27.0 g.
This paper addresses some of the microeconomic implications of this policy regime
change, focusing on the flows of bank credit to the enterprise sector and analysing
independently the determinants of corporate credit from the side of lenders and borrowers. To
this effect we use results from the recent literature to formulate and specify equations
reflecting the motivation behind lending and borrowing decisions. These equations are
estimated econometrically using firm level data for Bulgarian firms for the period 1995-1999.
The Department of Transportation, for example, does not fully consider how
increased investment in passenger or freight railways might alleviate the need for
additional road and highway expenditures, and does not coordinate the landside
port improvements it funds with Army Corps of Engineers waterside invest-
ments at the very same ports.
On the provider side, Beck, Demirguc-Kunt, and Martinez Peria collected indica-
tors of financial outreach (such as number of bank branches and ATMs per capita
and per square kilometer as well as the number of loan and deposit accounts per
capita) from 99 country regulators for the first time in 2004.
These data were
updated and expanded by the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) in
2008 and 2009 and by the International Monetary Fund in 2010. These data sets
are important sources of basic cross-country indicators developed at a relatively
Strengthening Job Market Helps PIT
Revenues. The PIT is the state’s largest General
Fund revenue source and grows over time
largely in line with the main component
of taxable personal income: the wages and
salaries of Californians. The most recent data
for 2010 indicate that wages and salaries made
up 73 percent of California resident tax filers’
adjusted gross income (AGI) and accounted
for 63 percent of PIT revenue. Accordingly, the
strength of trends in the state’s job market plays a
major role in the PIT’s overall growth rate.
Of course the Deepwater Horizon oil spill served as a reminder that we must develop our domestic
energy resources both safely and responsibly. Eleven men died and Americans watched as nearly
five million barrels of oil spilled into the Gulf of Mexico. Subsequent reviews exposed significant
weaknesses in the regulatory process and an industry unduly complacent about the safety of
offshore oil and gas development.
