Examples of such organisational factors include the significant changes to the management of
organ donation services made in recent years, with the aim of ensuring that whenever a person
dies in circumstances where organ donation is a possibility, this possibility may be raised with
Despite the prominence of gender issues in the IADGs, effectiveness of development cooperation has not focussed
enough on outcomes of gender equality and women’s rights in terms of either the inclusion of indicators tracking the
focus of development cooperation on gender equality or the participation of women’s organisations in initiatives to hold
actors to account. 2012 analysis conducted for the DCF shows that aid/partnership policies, targets and mutual
accountability processes do not focus adequately on the gender impact of development cooperation.
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.
Even moderate-sized events take a lot of planning and organising. It’s wise to set up an organising
group right from the start and allocate areas of responsibility. Extra helpers can be brought in for
particular roles, such as stewarding, without having to attend all the planning meetings. This approach
cuts down on stress for particular individuals and ensures a more efficient use of everyone’s time and

The firm’s beta ratios, its market value to book value, its current price to earnings ratio and the
historical growth rate in earning per share are identified by Moore & Beltz (2002) as possessing strong
influence on the equity price of the firm. They also argue that the identified factors have varying
effects on the price and the effects vary from time to time, sector to sector and even from firm to firm
within the same industry.
The best breed of waterfowl to raise depends on several factors, including the reason for raising them
and the amount of space available.
Ducks are small and require less space than geese. However, they need a year round grain supplement
and are more prone to predators. Geese require twice as much space as ducks, but do well on limited
grain when they have plenty of grazing space. They are seldom bothered by predators.
Some waterfowl are raised for meat. They can be purchased from a commercial hatchery or local feed
store. Duck breeds favored for meat production...

I am grateful to the publishers for the invitation
to produce a second edition of Applied Basic
Science for Basic Surgical Training. Despite the
considerable changes to education and examination,
the requirement of any future surgeon to possess
a comprehensive knowledge of the applied basic
sciences remains the core of surgical training; a fact
that is universally acknowledged by the organisations
most closely involved in the shaping of the surgical
A distinction is to be made between the terms 'efficacy'
and 'effectiveness'. Efficacy is defined as "the probability
of benefit to individuals in a defined population from a
medical technology applied for a given medical problem
under ideal conditions of use". By contrast, effectiveness is
considered to have all the attributes of efficacy but to
reflect "performance under ordinary conditions by the
average practitioner for the typical patient" .
In recent years, the food and beverage industry in the US has viewed children and adolescents as
a major market force. As a result, children and adolescents are now the target of intense and
specialized food marketing and advertising efforts. Food marketers are interested in youth as
consumers because of their spending power, their purchasing influence, and as future adult
consumers. Multiple techniques and channels are used to reach youth, beginning when they are
toddlers, to foster brand-building and influence food product purchase behavior.
The resource-based view of the firm (RBV) is one of the latest strategic management concepts to be enthusiastically em-braced by marketing scholars. This paper argues that the RBV holds much promise as a framework for understanding stra-tegic marketing issues but cautions that, before it is adopted, it needs to be fully understood. Consequently, the paper charts the development of the RBV from its origins in early economic models of imperfect competition, through the work of evolutionary economists to the contributions of strategy and marketing scholars over the past two decades.
As life expectancy continues to rise, one of the
greatest challenges of public health is to improve
the quality of later years of life. The aim of this
present study was to analyze the quality of life
profile of the elderly across different demographic
and socioeconomic factors. A cross-sectional
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.
As the market leader in digital signage, NEC offers a large selection of
powerful digital signage solutions that can provide reliable outstanding
images over long periods of use.
Digital Signage can serve several purposes such as informing, entertaining
or providing a purchasing incentive. For instance, a public display with
tantalising content placed above a concession stand can boost sales of
popcorn, cola and other items.
Hence, there is an imperative need to re-engineer Pakistan’s dairy industry; both at farm and processor
level. This paper seeks to investigate the tools that could bring about such change. We believe achieving
the strategic change outlined in this paper for the dairy industry may prove challenging for at least some
the large, well-organised and informed Somalia
diaspora repatriate significant remittances and,
to a very considerable extent, Somalis (especially
urban communities) subsist on these remittances.
remittances have been used to invest in a flourishing
private sector in Somalia, including private health
care services. However, these investments are not
aggregated nor under control of central authorities,
are not distributed according to need and so are not
strategically focussed, efficient or egalitarian.
