  • Services’ Offi ce on Women’s Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics as a tool to help identify vulnerable and underserved populations at the state level, where most decisions regarding health policy are developed and implemented. While the project provides data on health, health care, and risk behavior on all populations in each state for which data are collected, women’s health concerns have been targeted for inclusion, and racial and ethnic differences among women are a primary focus.

  • Our results suggest that both monetary policy and capital inows shocks have a signicant and positive effect on house prices, credit to the private sector and residential investment. The effects of both shocks are greater in countries with a higher degree of mortgage market development, with the effect of monetary policy shocks roughly doubling. This suggests that excessive nancial innovation may act as a propagation mechanism. The existence of mortgage-backed securities has a much larger effect on the transmission of capital inows shocks.

  • The reverse is true of collection agencies, which provide information to the repositories, but do not use credit data to evaluate consumer creditworthiness, although they may use information in credit reports to locate debtors. Repositories also obtain information by requesting it from public records and government entities and when certain government entities report directly to the repositories, such as for delinquent child or family support payments, unpaid parking tickets, or overpayments of unemployment benefits.

  • This discourse participates, in turn, in a broader discourse of accumulation, the irrevocable flow of advertisements interwoven with the Oscar show itself. While these high-priced advertisements—ads during Oscar telecasts, like Superbowl ads, are often themselves celebrated as elaborately produced showcases—are for a variety of products, their metonymic linkage to the film history montage overdetermines the montage’s celebration of spectatorship as accumulation and consumption.

  • The first section laid out a theory of media that recognized the cathartic and escapist function of motion picture entertainment but deplored the photoplay that “tends to degrade human beings.” Italicized references to “moral importance” and capitalized imperatives that “the motion picture has special Moral obligations” animate every line of the text.

  • None of the newer evidence altered the priority given to metformin cited in the previous guideline. Although the specific cardioprotective effects of metformin suggested by the UKPDS study were open to challenge from some of the very recent studies, this was not on the basis of strong outcome data. Large observational studies from Canada and Scotland111,112 appeared to support the widespread advantage of metformin over sulfonylureas, but the A Diabetes Outcome Progression Trial (ADOPT) study did not.

  • They have also become important international investors and trade partners, and play a crucial role in world energy markets. Indeed, GCC countries are major exporters of oil in global energy markets, so their stock markets may be susceptible to changes in oil prices. However, the transmission mechanisms of oil price shocks to stock returns in GCC markets should be different from those in net oil-importing countries.

  • A budget should include all projected expenses associated with a project, from refreshments at focus group discussions (FGDs) to staff salaries. When your project is complete, you can fill in actual budget costs and compare them with your projected figures for future planning. Figure 2 shows a sample budget for print, radio, and video materials. While not an exhaustive list, this sample includes the major expenses you might encounter in a typical materials development project.

  • As previously mentioned, preferred stocks are junior to the debt obligations of the company and senior to common equity. Figure 3 shows the priority of various security types in a typical capital structure. In this graph we scaled the order of priority by the average proportion of each security type for financial and non-financial firms in the S&P 500, in order to highlight not only the priority but also the different relative importance of each security type for financial versus non-financial firms. When a firm is liquidated, debt holders are paid first. If debt holders are...

  • The results of studies by Fama and Schwert (1977), Chen, Roll and Ross (1986), Nelson (1976) and Jaffe and Mandelker (1976) pointed to a negative relation between inflation and stock prices. We hypothesize similarly: an increase in the rate of inflation is likely to lead to economic tightening policies, which in turn increases the nominal risk-free rate and hence raises the discount rate in the valuation model (equation 1).

  • The informational efficiency of the bond market relative to the stock market has received increasing attention in recent years. For example, Kwan (1996) finds, using daily data, that stock returns lead bond returns, suggesting that stocks may be informationally more efficient than bonds, while Hotchkiss and Ronen (2002) find, using higher-frequency (intra- day) data, that the informational efficiency of corporate bonds is similar to that of the underlying stocks.

  • Physical water resource constraints make companies more susceptible to reputational risks. Declines in water availability and quality can increase competition for clean water. In water-scarce regions, tensions can arise between businesses and local communities, particularly in developing countries where local populations often lack access to safe and reliable drinking water. Community opposition to industrial water withdrawals and perceived or real inequities in use can emerge quickly and affect businesses profoundly.

  • Recognizing the redistributive nature of investment in TM is important. Indigenous people will seek the help of tradi- tional healers because of proximity, familiarity, and trust. Investments in TM could therefore be used strategically to increase access to conventional preventive and therapeutic care. Including the traditional healer as part of the health care team may thus be an important strategy both to attract patients and to upgrade the skills and training of traditional healers.

  • As one might expect from the preceding results in Tables 1 and 5, most of the return differences between new moon and full moon windows are insignificant at the individual exchange level. The persistence results are also similar to earlier results. New moon returns exceed full moon returns for most years for 16 out of 18 exchanges, one shows an even split of years, and one shows the converse result. Similar to Figures 1 and 2, in Figure 3 we illustrate the economic magnitude of the return differences by presenting a graph of annualized new moon and...
