  • A truly distributed service would allow a client to use services by connecting to a broker nearest to the client’s geographical location. By having such local broker, a client does not have to re-connect all the way back to the broker that it was last attached to. If the client is not satisfied with the response times that it experiences or if the broker that it has connected to fails, the client could very well choose to connect to some other local broker.

  • It has been a decade since book-length writing about law and the Internet began in earnest. Ethan Katsh’s wonderful book Law in a Digital World (1995) is just over a decade old, and anticipated the flood. My first book, Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace (1999), is just under. Most of these early books had a common character. We were all trying first to make the obscure understandable, and second, to draw lessons from the understood about how law and technology needed to interact.

  • In this paper we show that nontraded goods (in ¯nal consumption and in retail services) play an important role in exchange rate behavior in the context of an otherwise standard open-economy macro model. In our model, nontraded goods have an important role even though °uctuations in the relative price of nontraded goods account for a small proportion of real exchange rate °uctuations. 3 Our quantitative study with nontraded goods generates implications along several dimensions that are more closely in line with the data relative to the model that abstracts from nontraded goods.

  • The dehesa is both a resilient and a fragile system; its resilience derives from the perseverance of its operators, and its fragility is its susceptibility to unfavourable economic factors that influence its profitability (Siebold, 2009). Livestock grazing is an integral management component of a dehesa and undergirds the conservation function of the system. The livestock component, including cattle, accounts for the largest fraction of revenue from the dehesa.

  • In some tropical shrimp-fishing grounds, turtles are relatively abundant and so may be captured incidentally and drown in the shrimp-trawls. Some countries have already taken action to mitigate the problem of turtle by-catch, and the use of the turtle-exclusion devices (TEDs) is for instance compulsory in tropical shrimp-fisheries in the USA as well as in other countries which wish to export shrimp to the USA but have problems with turtle by-catch. Australia has also introduced TEDs in some of its shrimp fisheries.

  • Our first investor, the dogmatist, has extreme prior beliefs about the potential for manager skill. The dogmatist rules out any potential for skill, either fixed or time varying, for any fund manager. That is, the dogmatist’s view is that ai0 is fixed at 1 12ðexpense þ 0:01  turnoverÞ and that ai1 is fixed at zero, where expense and turnover are the fund’s reported annual expense ratio and turnover, and where we assume a round-trip total trade cost of 1% (this prior specification is similar to Pastor and Stambaugh (2002a,b)).

  • Renewable fuels standard (RFS) policies are becoming a popular public policy mechanism for developing the market for renewable fuels in the transportation sector. During the past decade, U.S. states and several countries began implementing these more market-based (less command and control) policies to support increased biofuels production and use. This paper presents an overview of current and proposed U.S. state-level policies, as well as selected electric sector policies and international fuel standard policies. Current U.S.

  • Moreover, there is a contradiction between central approval and local priority-setting. This is almost a problem of the technocrats against the people. In some countries, the technocrats at the central level are excel- lent, and they want projects to be technically sound before they approve them. In other countries, the technicians are not as good. However, there may be a more democratic aspect here, because the technicians do not demand as much of the projects as the more technically advanced coun- tries do.

  • Real assets definitely play a significant part in the portfolios of both private and institutional investors. The magnitude of the capital and current investments in real assets can, however, be only roughly estimated as investors – as described – can choose different forms of investment, the market volume of which is often not transparent. The purpose of the investment is also not always clear. For instance, an owner-occupied property is certainly a real asset investment. However, the house owner does not necessarily purchase or build a home with the aim of making a profit.

  • Conceptually, we base our model mainly on the setups of Hannan (2006) and Brewer and Jackson (2006). In contrast to Hannan (2006), we use an index of fees instead of individual fees as the dependent variable and we modify the setup to control for greater heterogeneity in the data. Unlike Brewer and Jackson (2006), 6 the index composition is based on the actual distribution of services purchased by a representative bank client instead of imposing equal weights.

His art explores social and political issues in a wide range of media, including painting, drawing, performance, sculpture and installation.

  • Although the vision of P2P systems is grand, the technical challenges associated with them are immense, and as a result the realization of the vision has been elusive. Because the membership in the system is ad-hoc and dynamic, it is very difficult to predict or reason about the location and quality of the system’s resources. For example, the placement of data in content-sharing systems is often na¨ ıve: data placement is largely demand driven, with little regard given to network bandwidth, load, or historical trustworthiness of the peer on which the data is placed.

  • Mexican corporations that do not accept foreign investment (by stipulating as such in their by- laws) may acquire real property in the Prohibited Zone for any purpose. In contrast, while a Mexican company that allows foreign investment may also purchase real property within the Prohibited Zone, it can do so for non-residential purposes only, and provided that the corporation’s by-laws demand adherence to the Calvo Clause and that the corporation notifies the Secretary of Foreign Relations (SRE).

  • Note that the above assumes ultimate collection of the premium. Billed premium that is later determined to be uncollectible may be written off in several different locations, based on the particular accounting system. For example, U.S. regulatory accounting treats such uncollectible amounts as negative “other income”, while they may be accounted for as underwriting expenses under GAAP accounting. Conceivably another possibility might be negative premium. The above discussion focused on premium revenue on a calendar period basis.

  • A CEO’s influence on the board can reduce the board’s effectiveness in monitoring managers. The greater a CEO’s influence on the board, the less likely the board is to suspect irregularities that a more independent board may have caught. Concerns about a CEO’s influence on the board have led the NYSE to propose that each board have a nominating or corporate governance committee that is comprised solely of independent directors.

  • Results from this laboratory can be used for a discussion of the biological consequences of pollution and will provide students with an appreciation for how dilution influences a chemical's biological effect. While endocrine disrupters are currently a 'hot topic,' other pollutants could also be tested. We tested some heavy metals (which are a perennial concern) and had some very interesting growth abnormalities show up. Chemical pollutants are not the only parameters that may influence sponge growth.
