Maize in Ghana is extensively traded. Miracle (1966)
estimated that in the mid-1960s, fully one-third of Ghana’s
maize crop was being marketed—at the time an unusually
high proportion for a subsistence crop in sub-Saharan
Africa. The proportion has increased over the years with
the rise of commercial farming. Today, at least half of the
national maize crop is believed to enter the market
(GGDP 1991; Alderman 1991).
The CWA contains both “water-quality based” regulatory controls, which vary
according to the designated use (e.g., drinking water source, fishable, swimmable) and
attributes (e.g., volume and rate of flow) of the receiving water body, and “technology-
based” effluent standards that are achievable using available pollution control technology.
Agency IT policies should establish, and agencies should adhere to, a regular cycle of back-up overwrites based on the agency’s security and disaster recovery needs.
Managing Exempt and Confidential Public Records
The Florida statutes contain hundreds of specific exemptions to the access and inspection requirements of the Public Records Law. The statutes also designate many records as exempt and confidential. Whether their records are designated as exempt and confidential or simply exempt, agencies are responsible for ensuring that these public records are properly safeguarded.
The hot air produced by the projection lamphouses must always be extracted to the outside of the
building. This is not new and you have to be very careful regarding this exhaust air. The correct exhaust
of the hot air ensures a longer service life of your equipment as well as better ageing characteristics of
your lamps and an optimized functional capability of your installation.
You have to correctly calibrate the flow of the exhaust air in accordance with the lamp power (or the
max. lamp power allowed for the lamphouse - see...

We have set out below our key messages resulting from the work of
the Midwifery 2020 programme which underpin the vision of how
midwives can lead and deliver care in a changing environment. They
reinforce and restate the core values of the profession, celebrate the
achievements made in the past, and show how midwives can continue
to strengthen their unique contribution as key professionals who ensure
that women, their partners and their babies have safe and life
With link correlation information (CPRP) available
among neighboring nodes, collective ACKs are achieved
in an accumulative manner. The success of a transmis-
sion to a node (deﬁned as the coverage probability of a
node) is no longer a binary (0/1) estimation, but a prob-
ability value between 0 and 1. Using collective ACKs, a
sender updates the coverage probability values of neigh-
boring receivers whenever (i) it transmits or (ii) over-
hears a rebroadcast message.
The structure of the paper is as follows. Section 2 discusses the literature on both measuring
competition and the bank interest rate pass-through. Section 3 describes the Boone indicator of
competition and Section 4 the employed interest rate pass-through model of the error-correction type
and the applied panel unit root and cointegration tests. Section 5 presents the various data sets used.
The results on the various tests and estimates of the spread model and the error correction model
equations are shown in Section 6. Finally, Section 7 summarises and concludes....
The rst thing that most graduate students do is they rush to the literature to see if
someone else had this idea already. However, my advice is to wait a bit before you look
at the literature. Eventually you should do a thorough literature review, of course, but I
think that you will do much better if you work on your idea for a few weeks before doing
a systematic literature search. There are several reasons for delay.
The third type of animation is called behavioral animation and takes into account the
relationship between each object and the other objects. Moreover the control of animation may
be performed at a task level, but we may aso consider the animated objects as autonomous
creatures. In fact, we will consider as a behavioral motion control method any method which
drives the behavior of objects by providing high-level directives indicating a specific behavior
without any other stimulus. ...
Bathroom surfaces, such as faucets, handles, and toilet seats should be washed and disinfected
several times a day, if possible, but at least once daily or when obviously soiled. The bleach and
water solution or chlorine-containing scouring powders or other commercial bathroom surface
cleaners/disinfectants can be used in these areas. Surfaces that infants and young toddlers are
likely to touch or mouth, such as crib rails, should be washed with soap and water and disinfected
with a nontoxic disinfectant, such as bleach solution, at least once daily and more often if visibly
Furthermore, much has changed in north India since Dyson and Moore’s
account was written. In addition to the cumulative impact of family planning programmes (which have
made contraception an issue that can be discussed publicly) and changes in consumption patterns (with
the rise of mobile phones, and a great extension of mass media into rural and poor urban areas, for
example) there have also been major attempts to raise school enrolment levels and to reduce gender
Demand for organically produced food products is increasing rapidly in North
America, driven by a perception that organic agriculture results in fewer negative
environmental impacts and yields greater benefits for human health than conventional
systems. Despite the increasing interest in organic grain production on the Canadian
Prairies, a number of challenges remain to be addressed to ensure its long-term
sustainability. In this review, we summarize Western Canadian research into organic crop
production and evaluate its agronomic, environmental, and economic sustainability. ...
Following the same logic, the magnitude of the effect of an event is considered
sufficient if the effect on the policyholder is significant when compared to the
minimum benefits payable in a scenario of commercial substance.
Payments made which do not compensate the policyholder for the effect of the
insured event, e.g. payments made for competitive reasons, are not taken into
consideration in the assessment of insurance risk.
However, IFRS 4 does not limit the payment by the insurer to an amount equal to
the financial impact of the adverse event.
While the basic elements of audit task plans are likely to be similar, the actual contents will
differ widely depending on the type of audit (regularity or performance), the audit
objective(s) and the auditee. Substantial differences will be found even with similar types of
audit. For example, in an audit to give an opinion on the financial statements of an entity that
is believed to have reasonably good accounting systems, the methodology is likely to
emphasise testing the systems and examining the adequacy of the management controls.
Earlier research confirms this disparity in views and also the huge variation in the structures and
roles of PMOs. In the tougher economic conditions and increasingly competitive business
environment of today, organisations cannot afford to continue spending huge sums of money on
unsuccessful projects and programmes. Neither can they afford the cost of an ineffective PMO. So it
is important to evaluate and understand the value a PMO can and should deliver and what
constitutes the right mix of people and processes within a PMO to make that contribution.
We describe two projects that explore this territory of easy-to-use domain-oriented tools that
help naïve users design three-dimensional models. Using the Furniture Factory users sketch,
model, and produce a class of furniture models. The Designosaur enables its users to make
models of dinosaurs, both real and imaginary. Both projects enable users to begin by sketching a
design and both employ a laser cutter as the output medium, to cut model materials from flat
material such as wood or plastic sheets.
Presently the EU and ECB do not have a mechanism to deal with anything but the most
severe, acute, and immediate aspects of the crisis. Two other possible solutions have been
discussed, and we show below that they are both inferior to the Trichet bonds solution we
The solution proposed by European authorities so far involves the ECB’s purchase of
outstanding sovereign debt in the market, which has only succeeded in buying a small amount of
the distressed debt while pushing bond prices upwards as a result of the intervention.
The Council Directive 85/337/EEC of 27 June 1985 on the assessment of the effects of certain public
and private projects on the environment
, as amended, known as the "EIA" (environmental impact
assessment) Directive, requires that an environmental assessment to be carried out by the competent
national authority for certain projects which are likely to have significant effects on the environment
by virtue, inter alia, of their nature, size or location, before development consent is given. The projects
may be proposed by a public or private person.
