Purpose and task of the research: research purpose the study aims to clarify the theoretical and practical foundations of the development and adoption of legal normative documents by State administrative agencies in the People’s Democratic Republic of Laos, through which indicates results, limitations and causes of the development of legal normative documents by State administrative agencies in Laos in order to propose solutions to enhance the quality of the development and adoption of legal normative documents by these agencies.
This consensus on the achievements and weaknesses of social funds was based, among other
things, on the differences between social funds that are created and operate within an emer-
gency context and those that are governed by developmental objectives. Regional and cultural
contexts also account for the diverse challenges, constraints, and opportunities that each pro-
gram faces. Recognition of diversity was assumed as the basis for the collective agreement on
Historically, the Cocos plate boundary produced the 1985 Michoacan earthquake
of magnitude 8.1 Mw Richter scale. It destroyed hundreds of buildings and
caused thousand of deaths in Mexico City and other parts of the country. It is
considered the most damaging earthquake in the history of Mexico City. The
Mexican insurance industry oﬃcials estimated payouts of four billion dollars. In
the last decades, other earthquakes have reached the magnitude 7.8 Mw Richter

and gait is mostly derived from studies that measured
and reported EF as a composite score [12,18,19]. Relatively
few studies have focused on the age-related deficits
in specific components of executive function and
most of these studies were based on a traditional set of
tests of executive function, without detailing specific
components. The conclusions drawn from these studies
might, therefore, be limited by their methodologies. The
putative executive measures might not load on a single
executive construct, and might overlap with each other
Patients aﬀected by bleeding disorders present a
wide spectrum of clinical symptoms that vary from a mild or
moderate bleeding tendency to signiﬁcant episodes. Women
with inherited bleeding disorders are particularly disadvantaged
since, in addition to suﬀering from general bleeding symptoms,
they are also at risk of bleeding complications from regular
haemostatic challenges during menstruation, pregnancy and
The tax-exempt money market is more complex than the taxable money
market. That’s largely because of a supply-and-demand imbalance for very
short-term municipal securities. There’s a high level of demand for these
issues—much of it coming from individuals who want to minimize their tax
bill by placing their cash in a tax-exempt money market mutual fund. But
supply is limited.
Harrison's Internal Medicine Chapter 23. Weakness and Paralysis
Weakness and Paralysis: Introduction Normal motor function involves integrated muscle activity that is modulated by the activity of the cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, cerebellum, and spinal cord. Motor system dysfunction leads to weakness or paralysis, which is discussed in this chapter, or to ataxia (Chap. 368) or abnormal movements (Chap. 367). The mode of onset, distribution, and accompaniments of weakness help to suggest its cause.
Weakness is a reduction in the power that can be exerted by one or more muscles.
Harrison's Internal Medicine Chapter 57. Photosensitivity and Other Reactions to Light
Sunlight is the most visible and obvious source of comfort in the environment. The sun provides the beneficial effects of warmth and vitamin D synthesis; however, acute and chronic sun exposure also have pathologic consequences.
Few effects of sun exposure beyond those affecting the skin have been identified, but cutaneous exposure to sunlight is the major cause of human skin cancer and can exert immunosuppressive effects as well.
Concurrently, shifting political attitudes and disillusionment with the policies that have
been tried are giving rise to a new surge of debate and reform. Most visible in the 1990s
is the effort to reform the welfare system to increase work incentives and to limit its use
as a long-term source of support for able-bodied adults, even when they have small chil-
dren. Behind this policy change has been a decade-long ideological debate about the
nature and causes of poverty, pitting conservatives against liberals.
Other Causes of Neck Pain
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) (Chap. 314) of the cervical apophyseal joints produces neck pain, stiffness, and limitation of motion. In advanced RA, synovitis of the atlantoaxial joint (C1-C2; Fig. 16-2) may damage the transverse ligament of the atlas, producing forward displacement of the atlas on the axis (atlantoaxial subluxation). Radiologic evidence of atlantoaxial subluxation occurs in 30% of patients with RA. Not surprisingly, the degree of subluxation correlates with the severity of erosive disease.
Acne Vulgaris Acne vulgaris is a self-limited disorder primarily of teenagers and young adults, although perhaps 10–20% of adults may continue to experience some form of the disorder. The permissive factor for the expression of the disease in adolescence is the increase in sebum production by sebaceous glands after puberty. Small cysts, called comedones , form in hair follicles due to blockage of the follicular orifice by retention of keratinous material and sebum.
The PSA criteria used to recommend a diagnostic prostate biopsy have evolved over time. The goal is to increase the sensitivity of the test for younger men more likely to die of the disease and to reduce the frequency of detecting cancers of low malignant potential in elderly men more likely to die of other causes. Age-specific reference ranges reduce the upper limit of normal for younger men and increase it for older men. Different thresholds alter the sensitivity and specificity of detection. The threshold for performance of a biopsy was 4.0 ng/mL, which has been reduced to 2.6...
Indirect standardization is more appropriate for rare outcomes than direct
standardization, resulting in the calculation of rates (McMichael and Giles, 1988). A
limitation of this study is that we did not have access to information on potentially
important risk factors such as lifestyle.
Results for all causes of deaths were significantly lower compared to the autochthon
German population. Overall SMR is reduced for the Aussiedler, therefore, they seem to be
healthier or more resistant than the Germans and therefore they are much healthier than
populations of countries from the FSU....
Because enteroviruses, including those causing HFMD, are very common, pregnant
women are frequently exposed to the virus as well. As for any other adults, the risk of
infection is higher for pregnant women who do not have antibodies from earlier
exposures to these viruses, and who are exposed to young children - the primary
spreaders of enteroviruses.
Most enterovirus infections during pregnancy cause mild or no illness in the mother.
Reduced levels of clinical or radiological pneumonia in clin-
ical trials of a nine-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine
provide an estimate of the vaccine-preventable disease burden
(valency indicates the number of serotypes against which the
vaccine provides protection; conjugate refers to conjugation of
polysaccharides to a protein backbone). In a study in The
Gambia, 37 percent of radiological pneumonia was prevented,
reflecting the amount of disease caused by S. pneumoniae, and
mortality was reduced by 16 percent (Cutts and others 2005).
NO2 is a product of combustion. It is a precursor to ground-level ozone formation
through photochemical reactions involving VOCs. NO2 causes a brown colour in the
atmosphere at elevated concentrations. It reacts in the atmosphere with ammonia to
form fine particulates, which reduce visibility and increase PM2.5 concentrations
(Levelton Engineering Limited, 2000).
NO2 irritates the mucous membranes in the respiratory tract.
Distinguishing Cardiovascular from Respiratory System Dyspnea If a patient has evidence of both pulmonary and cardiac disease, a cardiopulmonary exercise test should be carried out to determine which system is responsible for the exercise limitation. If, at peak exercise, the patient achieves predicted maximal ventilation, demonstrates an increase in dead space or hypoxemia (oxygen saturation below 90%), or develops bronchospasm, the respiratory system is probably the cause of the problem.
ACUTE DIARRHEA: TREATMENT Fluid and electrolyte replacement are of central importance to all forms of acute diarrhea. Fluid replacement alone may suffice for mild cases. Oral sugarelectrolyte solutions (sport drinks or designed formulations) should be instituted promptly with severe diarrhea to limit dehydration, which is the major cause of death. Profoundly dehydrated patients, especially infants and the elderly, require IV rehydration.
