The practice of journalism as a profession raises many ethical issues. We are more
concerned with the nature and possible resolution of the issues that arise in the practice
than with the theoretical definition of a profession. The nature of professionalism is both
vague and flexible, as older professions like law and medicine change, and newer
occupations jostle for the status that professionalism brings, occupations like teaching,
social work, nursing, and even journalism.
In data networking, transmit means to issue signals to the network medium
Transmission refers to either the process of transmitting or the progress of signals after they have been transmitted
The decline in the economy, particularly in the second half of 2008, likely contributed to smaller
gains in participants relative to previous years and a number of programs reported losses in the
total number of participants. Perhaps surprisingly, nonresidential participant growth was on par
with 2007; while the reason for this increase is unclear, one possible explanation could be
heightened interest in renewable energy issues in an election year in which renewables and
climate change were a focus.
The ability to conduct research independently, accurately, and effectively plays a fundamental role in college
and the workplace. Research skills are critical tools for acquiring, extending, and sharing knowledge in
academic and workplace settings, and students must be able to determine when and how to conduct and
With the development of computing technologies, digital media security becomes an ever
increasing issue of daily life. As computer software and hardware evolves and as more
of it becomes accessible as an Internet application or service, information security has
gone from initially protecting digital images, into the area of multimedia. This area of
multimedia includes computer graphics, images, digital video and digital audio. As the
Internet expands, so does the significance of multimedia security.
While interacting socially, people are aware of and react to the feedback that they
receive by the other people in an environment. They adjust their body posture, their
facial expressions, and their general presentation. These adjustments are made not to be
artificial but to convey appropriate social information for the situation.
Other systems model different media, such as [TFN99], which describes a colored pencil
drawing system. Their volume graphics approach models the interaction between the pencil
lead and the paper. The pencil sketching program in [SB00] models the hardness and shape
of the pencil tip, the paper texture, and interaction with erasers and blenders. Mosaicing was
treated as a packing problem in [KP02]. Flatly colored containers were used to specify the
major shapes for the desired mosaic.
Nabin’s current research will strike a chord with most people.
He is tackling the pharmaceutical industry head-on by examining
the issues surrounding generic alternatives in the purchase of
prescription drugs. When people are asked if they would like a
cheaper brand, they usually assume that the ingredients are the
same, but the results of level trade tests have been surprising, he

In selecting our gurus, we began by making a list of established marketing gurus, such Philip Kotler, who have dominated marketing thinking for decades. Then, we went looking for the newcomers. We browsed the on-line
and off-line bookstores. We consulted the marketing journals, both popularand academic. We cruised the Internet. We searched for those who were making a splash with new marketing ideas.
As was mentioned previously, the times and business priorities are changing
at a rapid pace: no longer do organisations aspire to profit for shareholders
alone – they are increasingly answerable to other stakeholders. As a result of
regulatory and media pressure, in particular, best practice, transparency, open-ness and fair play are needed to be successful and sustainable in business.
While traditional concepts still exist and are referred to in this handbook, new
meanings are also developing.
It may have already occurred to you that this "toughest job you'll ever love seems almost
impossible. Look at some of the obstacles you may be facing. Your students are numerous;
many may be older than you. Textbooks are scarce, and again, many may be older than you.
The physical conditions are austere, with a tin roof that creaks as the temperature rises and
obliterates all other sound when the rains come. Pictures and posters disappear from the
classroom walls. Desks are too few. The blackboard has been worn to a light grey and chalk
The emergence of fixed cinemas coincided which a huge
growth phase in the business in general; film production increased
greatly, and film distribution developed into a special activity, often
managed by large film producers. However, until about 1914, besides the
cinemas, films also continued to be combined with live entertainment in
vaudeville and other theatres (Musser 1990; Allen 1980).
We can thus place the take-off of the cinema industry between
1905 and 1907. In these years it developed its own retail outlets and did
not depend exclusively on theatres and travelling showmen.
This note aims to encourage operations managers and staff
not only to give priority to project implementation performance
but also to balance it with sustainable institutional capacity
development beyond the project. To that end, existing country
institutions should be the “default” mode, and PIUs—especially
parallel “stand-alone” PIUs—should be phased out. This note
reflects lessons learned and draws on existing good practices in the
expectation that they can become the rule rather than the
A vast literature focuses on the predictability of U.S. and international stock returns using macroe-
conomic variables, such as the short government interest rate or the yield spread between defaultable
and government bonds. For instance, Ferson and Harvey (1993) nd that returns on international
stock indexes are predictable using macroeconomic indicators as conditioning variables. More
strikingly, Ferson and Harvey (1999) nd that broad economic variables explain the cross-sectional
variation in U.S. individual stock returns better than the Fama and French (1993) empirical factors.
The scientific and lay media extol the health benefits of good nutrition and physical
activity. Most books that have been published about nutrition and physical activity
have dealt with nutritional needs of young adults who exercise vigorously. At around
30 years of age or so, individuals start to become more concerned about having and
maintaining good health and realizing the personal benefits of good nutrition and
moderate-intensity physical activity. Some health professionals seem to believe that
nutrition and physical activity information is the same for all people.

Our results have important implications for the performance of the mutual fund industry.
From an overall perspective, we observe more frequently funds with negative
rather than positive performance. However, the performance of the industry as a whole
is not so bad because about 80 percent of the funds produce zero alphas. In fact, the
negative average performance documented in the previous literature is not due to the
majority of funds but is only caused by one fifth of the funds.
