Investor base: participation by different investors in the government bond market has grown
more diversified. Of the various actors in this market, banks tend to invest in relatively
shorter term bonds to match their short-term liability. Pension funds and insurance
companies prefer hedging long-term inflation risks by investing more in inflation linked
bonds. Non-residents concentrate their direct exposure to fixed rate instruments, but with
maturity less than 3 years.
Physical communication channels in wireless technology are inherently insecure. As
a wire only has two ends, the wired communication technology has a means of
supporting integrity of communication, whereas in wireless communication
dedicated technology is needed—even to control a basic point-to-point connection.
Government incentives and guarantees can then also be used – from support for research and
development (R&D) - which affects operational efficiency- to investment incentives (capital grants, loan
guarantees and low-interest rate loans), taxes (accelerated depreciation, tax credits, tax exemptions and
rebates), and price-based policies at the output stage (which affect revenue streams - e.g. feed-in tariffs), or
policies which target the cost of investment in capital by hedging or mitigating risk.
Hybr idity and Connect ivity br ing act ivit ies and people together, rather than
isolate objects and separate functions. These qualities also treat people and nature
as symbiot ic—as well as buildings and landscape—rather than opposit ional.
Porosity preserves the integr ity of that which is brought together while allowing
mutual access through permeable membranes, rather than the modernist at tempt
to dismantle boundaries or postmodernist fortiication.
Paleontologists, developmental biologists, geochemists, and many other sci-
entists are testing hypotheses that may explain this remarkable radiation. Some
researchers observe that the radiation of animals came at a time when the Earth
was going through some dramatic physical changes. It was emerging from a cli-
mate so cold that the entire planet was covered in glaciers. The ocean’s chem-
istry was also changing drastically. For most of Earth’s history, the oceans were
almost devoid of free oxygen.
Most tourism and business recruitment activities fall into the Quality, Connected Places component of a
regional strategy. Finally, leadership programs, annual meetings, and citizen forums represent the core
elements of Civic Collaboration.
Development professionals can use the same framework to map their existing strategy.
Friends and Relationships
Our relationships table needs to relate two users together, as well as record the type of relationship. Since some relationships require mutual consent, we need to indicate if the non-requesting user accepted the request to connect.
Now that you have a list of attractive securities from the credit analysts and
a list of available securities from the traders, you’ll need to combine them
into a portfolio.
One of your ﬁrst decisions will be about the maturities you’d like to
buy. Remember that Rule 2a-7 limits money market funds to securities with
maturities of 397 days or less. If you invest the entire fund at 397 days,
you’d almost deﬁnitely have the best-yielding fund in the market, but you
wouldn’t be complying with Rule 2a-7.
We show that in modeling social interaction, particularly dialogue, the attitude of obligation can be a useful adjunct to the popularly considered attitudes of belief, goal, and intention and their mutual and shared counterparts. In particular, we show how discourse obligations can be used to account in a natural manner for the connection between a question and its answer in dialogue and how obligations can be used along with other parts of the discourse context to extend the coverage of a dialogue system. ...
