The Backchecker (usually the Originator of the document, but may be
another designated designer other than the Checker) reviews the Checker corrections and
comments (red and blue/pencil marks). If the Backchecker agrees with the comments, he
places a green check next to the red. If the Backchecker does not agree with the
comments and then explains to the Checker a valid reason why the original item is
correct, the Backchecker then writes the word “stet” in green adjacent to the red marks to
indicate that the red is no longer valid and that the Checker has withdrawn his...
Areas with high concentrations of air-borne particulate matter are more
likely to experience fogs, because these particles are preferred nucleation sites for water
droplets. Smoke and soot are also very undesirable aesthetically.
Soot is formed during combustion when the supply of oxygen is insufficient for
complete conversion of carbon to carbon oxides. Its formation is mainly a problem in the
combustion of liquid and solid fuels (oil, coal, or wood), because molecular-scale mixing
of fuel and oxygen is not as easy here as it is in the combustion of natural gas (see below).
This project seeks to describe the barriers and opportunities for young women in the new
economy, and outline how CED can address poverty among young women. We are
attempting to understand which community supports help young women, and how we
could build CED into the current network of community-based organizations they already
In the Preface to the first edition of the Handbook of Veterinary Procedures and Emergency
Treatment, published in 1969, Dr. Kirk and Dr. Bistner described the format of that book
as being divided into six sections, “each emphasizing a facet of early examination, clinical
methods, or emergency care.”
Today, 37 years later, those original objectives remain unchanged. What has changed,
however, are the numerous advances in clinical diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities in
companion animal medicine.
While this crisis had many causes, it is clear now that the government could have done
more to prevent many of these problems from growing out of control and threatening the
stability of our financial system. Gaps and weaknesses in the supervision and regulation
of financial firms presented challenges to our government’s ability to monitor, prevent, or
address risks as they built up in the system. No regulator saw its job as protecting the
economy and financial system as a whole.
Interministerial partnerships and healthy public policies also support local Child Health programs and services. The
Healthy Babies Healthy Children (HBHC) program is a Reproductive and Child Health requirement designed to give
children the best start in life. The Ministry of Children and Youth Services (MCYS) administers the program and local
public health units deliver the program components. The Family Health programs are supported by the Ministry of
Health Promotion and outcomes achieved through the implementation of all the Child Health program requirements.
Students Teach Lifesaving Lessons in Egypt
Members of the Egyptian Medical Students’ Association (EMSA) organized a week-long education
campaign targeting parents waiting in the outpatient clinics of 20 university hospitals nationwide.
Through the effort, 5,000 families were educated about the disease and received
informational materials, including a pneumonia coloring book for children.
The Egyptian Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation (EPSF) distributed fliers, brochures, posters
and t-shirts to more than 40,000 people.
restrictions. AR also doesn't consume as much time and effort in many applications
because it's not required to construct the entire virtual scene, which can be tedious and
In this book, several new and emerging application areas of AR are presented. It is
divided into three sections. The first section contains applications in outdoor and
mobile AR, such as construction, restoration, security, and surveillance. The second
section deals with AR in medical, biological, and human bodies.

The Encyclopedia of Diseases and Disorders provides
authoritative information on a wide variety of diseases
and health disorders. Although the focus in planning
this collection of articles was on subjects of interest to
young readers, the information provided here is
valuable to users of any age. More than two hundred
articles are categorized in three major areas of interest:
infections, noninfectious diseases, and mental
We rst construct Pan-European size, book-to-market, and momentum risk factors for stocks.
Then, we report on the average performance of European mutual funds over our time period using
these benchmarks. Our ndings are similar to those of many studies of U.S. mutual funds (e.g.,
Carhart, 1997 and Wermers, 2000). Specically, the median one-factor and four-factor alphas are
-0.90%/year and -0.32%/year, respectively. This nding indicates that our benchmarks successfully
control for common variation in European equity mutual fund returns....

The research study was carried out by researchers with investment fund experience in
developing countries. It included a desk study review and assessment to take stock of existing
agriculture investment funds in developing countries in order to better understand their nature,
magnitude, and most of all, the lessons learned from their experiences to date. Based on the
initial work and characterization, more comprehensive case reviews were undertaken of six
distinct types of investment funds and one fund management company.
Volunteers report on a variety of staff meeting survival tactics. Some do Zen exercises in their
heads. Others doodle. Some prepare lessons. Others plan their vacations. The winners are those
who listen. Some listen for information. Others analyze the speakers' language skills, listening for
clues to their students' use of language and rhetoric. Some listen to the group dynamics and the
power plays. Others listen to the bits they are interested in and tune out for the rest. But just as
you are taking measure of your colleagues, so they are taking measure of you.
In this second edition of Veterinary Emergency Medicine Secrets we have updated the chapters
from the first edition and added some new chapters based on new interests and involvement
of emergency veterinarians. This question-and-answer format continues to be a useful means of
offering information about veterinary emergency medicine. The stimuli for new questions and
answers have come from readers of the first edition, students in the arena of emergency and critical
care medicine, veterinary nurses and technicians, and chapter authors.
Equity and fixed income funds play an important role for the impressive Thai mutual fund
growth. With an in depth analysis, we found two major facts. Firstly, Thai mutual fund industry is
concentrated in fixed income mutual funds especially short-term money market funds. Secondly,
approximately 50% of the AUM invested in Thai equity mutual funds are from LTF and RMF or
growth in equity mutual funds is affected by tax incentive.
Since the issue of urban poverty cuts at the heart of social policy in the United States, it
is not surprising that ideology plays a substantial role in many of the debates about it. The
hypotheses often reflect ideological, as well as empirical, social science debates. This is
unavoidable. Nonetheless, the focal point of this article is not on ideology but rather on
what may reasonably be claimed to be known about inner-city poverty. Ideology may
well be critical to the decision about what to believe and what policies are to be preferred.
This paper addresses all these issues by measuring the impact of luck on mutual fund performance.
Specifically, we use the False Discovery Rate (F DR) introduced by Benjamini
and Hochberg (1995) in the statistical literature—the F DR measures the proportion of
lucky funds among the significant funds. We extend this methodology by developing
a new approach which allows us to separately compute the F DR among funds with
significant positive estimated alphas (called hereafter the best funds) and funds with
significant negative estimated alphas (called hereafter the worst funds).
For example, SLAT Prime Obligation Fund disclosed a variety of asset purchases occurring in the year
ended June 30, 2009, but did not disclose transaction dates. Second, even if the date of the support was
disclosed, in many cases that date represented when the sponsor chose to provide direct support, but the
direct support may have been preceded by indirect support such as guarantees that were important in
stabilizing the NAV, reassuring investors and preventing runs.
Furthermore, the explanatory scope of TSC sometimes is misunder-
stood as stopping short at the boundaries of the physical body, leaving
embeddedness out of the account. However, the main unit of the analysis
of cognition arguably is the on-going interaction between the embodied
agent and the context of action. An adequate description of bodily-based
experience should begin in the agent’s relationship to the surroundings,
because experience arises from the interaction between agent and context.
