Mobile network operators will meet many challenges in the coming years. It is expected that the
number of people connected, wireline and wireless, will reach five billion by 2015. At the same
time, people use more wireless services and they expect similar user experience to what they
can now get from fixed networks. Because of that we will see a hundred-fold increase in
network traffic in the near future. At the same time markets are saturating and the revenue per
bit is dropping.

It is becomming increasingly difficcult for many people to find decent accomodation in London at a
price they can afford. To put it simpley, most people just don't have the necesary funds. Organiseations
such as Home Front can offer advise, but it widely agreed that the situation is no longer managable.

The traditional view of the relationship between business and the arts is
very much a one-way affair: organisations may endorse, fund or publicise
the arts but the arts have nothing to offer from a business perspective. The
Value of Arts for Business challenges this view by showing how the arts,
in the form of Arts-based Initiatives (ABIs), can be used to enhance valuecreation
capacity and boost business performance. The book introduces
and explains three models that show how organisations can successfully
implement and manage ABIs.
Neighborhoods may influence late-life health through a number of pathways (see Figure 1). The IOM
(1991) disablement framework, which distinguishes among disease, functional limitation, and disability, serves
as the starting point for this framework. We extend the IOM framework to include mortality and self-rated
general health status, which are both influenced by disease, functional limitation, and disability, as well as the
variety of individual and neighborhood factors that influence health in general.
As life expectancy continues to rise, one of the

study was carried out in two stages, involving
1,958 individuals aged 60 years or more. Health
related quality of life (HRQOL) was assessed using
the SF-36 questionnaire.

Nations, humanitarian organisations and peacekeepers.
In an era of information overload, it is not too radical to expect some social consciousness from the cinema
medium. All this while, there has been discussion about media‟s responsibility to the society. So why cinema
should be engaged only with creating leisure for its audience and not make them think critically? Popular
rhetoric and culture need to be challenged and cinema can do it effectively if it exhibits some sensitivity to
gender issues. This is because Hindi films now enjoy a huge international market in many South Asian and
For the HR context there is a supplementary and vital research question: ‘How should an
HR manager respond to the competing pressures of recruiting and retaining attractive employees

A seminal study, The University in Development explores how the university is indeed 'in development': pursuing a new 'third' mission of external societal development (alongside its two existing missions of teaching and research), and experiencing a major internal revolution as this impacts on its structural organisation.

Stereotypical accountants – depicted tirelessly in literature and cinema – hunch lifelessly over
their desks adding and subtracting endless columns of numbers. It is a dismal job held by nameless,
glassy-eyed hordes. While these fictional portrayals were never accurate, the focus on numbers
carries more than a grain of truth. Traditionally, accountants kept the books and assured that statutory
requirements were met.
