  • Third, the demand for medical goods has increased. Consumer expenditure on these goods more than doubled between 1982 and 1986 and by 1990 had reached nearly seven times the 1982 level. Hospital and general practitioner fees are paid by the state in China, so this growth in consumer spending suggests that the people are paying increased attention to their health, and have begun to buy expensive health-related products. As a result of higher incomes, dramatic changes in the Chinese lifestyle are occurring.

  • The world’s climate is changing. The scientific evidence is incontrovertible: most of this change is due to human activity, and the process is speeding up as more and more carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gases are pumped into the atmosphere. The next 10 years are critical. Carbon dioxide emissions must be cut rapidly. If they are, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, we may limit the rise in global temperatures to two degrees centigrade.

On the other hand, the use of the system consumed an additional amount of time and the personal contacts among the users were reduced. Overall, the users see more advantages than disadvantages.

The majority of companies’ loans are not secured by collateral, or in other words, have only a personal guarantee. Thus, on average, almost 85% of loans have no collateral.

Coal burning produces one and a half times the CO2 emissions of oil combustion and twice that from burning natural gas (for an equal amount of energy produced).

  • Finally, all the countries that successfully used austerity to boost growth had much higher interest rates than the United States does at present. This meant that there was substantial room for rates to decline following the imposition of austerity. The differences between the United States in 2010 and the countries that have successfully gone the route of fiscal austerity to boost growth are large and are very central to the adjustment process.

(2008, 2009) and Frait and Holub (2011), who stressed the non-inflationary nature of the CNB’s accounting losses related to large FX reserves and assessed the bank’s ability to get out of its negative equity situation in the future without resorting to faster price growth.

  • The Weidmoos also gained in significance for many other bird species, thanks to the LIFE project. For example, many types of duck now breed at the Weidmoos. Species such as the Little Grebe and the Water Rail are now typical of the Weidmoos. Even rare reed-dwellers, such as the Great Reed Warbler found a new habitat at the Weidmoos. The essential basis of this success story is the close collaboration and trust shown by the Nature Protection Department, the Association Torferneuerungsverein, the local councils, landowners, farmers and hunters.

  • Third, we computed VAIs for each shot in each film. The purpose of these calculations was to determine the relative amount ofmotion andmovement in shots of different duration and whether that relation had changed over the course of 75 years of popular film. Since both dimensions, shot length and VAI per shot, are strongly skewed, we transformed each. We took the logarithmof each shot duration, and because VAI is based on correlations, we used the r-to-z transformfor VAIs. These transformations created roughly normal distributions along both dimensions for all films....

At low transaction amounts or for informal money transfer options, this difference more than doubled. 5 In Kenya M-PESA was routinely one-third to one-half as expensive as alternative systems.

  • The overriding conclusion of the Merrill Research & Associates (2003) tracking study is that the U.S. wine industry now stands at a crossroads. For the first time in thirty years, a new generation of young adults gives evidence of a strong preference for wine as part of their lifestyles. Many of them are entering the category as core wine drinkers. With their significant age-group numbers and their adoption of wine in their mid-twenties, they are a leading indicator of great potential as their cohorts likewise reach adulthood.
