  • Trends in needing help with such activities as housework or shopping may be due to changes in the physical abilities of the older population, but they may also be related to the availability of help in the house, either familial or paid, the availability of appliances, and the accessibility of transportation (1, 12). However, causes of trends in IADL functioning have not been apportioned to reasons residing in the person and reasons outside the person. The trends in what is termed ADL disability have not been nearly as consistent as those in IADL disability (31).

  • Unfortunately, the adverse effects of transportation have a greater impact on the natural and human environment than either spatial proximity or telecommunications. The basic technology used in transportation causes emissions of pollutants which have been proved, or are believed, to damage human health and plant life and to upset sensitive ecosystem balances.

  • The magic of the Hollywood style at its best (and of all the cinema which fell within its sphere of influence) arose, not exclusively, but in one important aspect, from its skilled and satisfying manipulation of visual pleasure. Unchallenged, mainstream film coded the erotic into the language of the dominant patriarchal order.

  • Institutional gaps at the country level can be immense. Too often, they have included a lack of documented rights claimed by local people and weak con- sultation processes that have led to uncompensated loss of land rights, espe- cially by vulnerable groups; a limited capacity to assess a proposed project’s technical and economic viability; and a limited capacity to assess or enforce environmental and social safeguards. Such problems are not due to a lack of potential.

  • At higher temperatures, developed economies face a growing risk of large-scale shocks - for example, the rising costs of extreme weather events could affect global financial markets through higher and more volatile costs of insurance.

  • Strikes and kicks can be very swift and dangerous because of the two horny claws on each foot. Striking with the forelimbs is often performed as part of a rearing jumping action while on the move. With the hind leg the camel can kick to its own shoulder in swinging sidewards and kick forcefully rearwards. They are able to deliver a strong sweeping kick while in sternal recumbency.

  • Cross-country differences in efficiency results are associated with expenditure composition and institutional arrangements in education and health. In particular, wage spending is negatively associated with efficiency in education, while health efficiency tends to be lower in countries with more health workers (Tables 11 and 12). This finding indicates that reduced compensation spending may increase efficiency. However, it could also reflect the possibility that countries with poor past education and health outcomes are spending more on staffing. ...

By the end of the century the emphasis had changed to international competitiveness and innovation. As a result, policy targets moved towards technology issues and creation of an enterprise culture. In transition economies a major focus has been upon creating an enabling environment for the market economy.

  • A large proportion of real estate transactions are carried out with the help of real estate agents.1 These agents provide expertise (on pricing, preparing a property for sale, and bargaining) and convenience (by showing the property, advertising and holding open houses, and taking care of paperwork). One advantage of working with an agent who is a realtor is access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), a database that compiles information on all properties listed by local realtors. Typically, realtors charge a commission of around 6 percent.

  • RAM is consumed by TinyDB and forwarding buffers in the networking stack. We have also experimented with several other types of join queries and found similar re- sults: irrespective of the query, join-predicate selectivity and average node depth have the largest effect on query execution cost for the distributed join algorithm. For all graphs showing results for the distributed join al- gorithm, we show power utilization and result accuracy at steady state, after groups have formed and nodes are per- forming the join in-network.

  • Though the resaw process can be easy and a delight when the machines are well adjusted and your stock has consistent grain, it can be a nightmare when either aren't. Resaw on the band saw requires that the guides be adjusted carefully. If you have only cut thinner stock on your band saw (up to 2" or so) you may have never had the need to carefully adjust the guides.
