  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Women usually produce one mature egg per menstrual cycle. Because IVF is so expensive, current clinical practice is to give women hormonal drugs to stimulate multiple eggs in one cycle, to increase their chances of pregnancy. For this process, women inject three different hormones over the course of four to six weeks to “shut down” their ovaries, “hyperstimulate” them, and to control the timing that the mature eggs will be released.

  • The above theoretical discussions have been useful in clarifying that one needs to use a basic epidemiological approach in thinking about the relationship between trends in different aspects of health. Mortality is a dynamic process that removes people from the population at a faster or slower rate over time. The number or proportion of people who are not healthy in a population is an indicator of population health—or a stock measure—at a point in time.

  • In a 2007 research paper for the SBA, Erin Kepler and Scott Shane found that 14 percent of the women entrepreneurs in their sample had employer firms, versus nearly 22 percent of the men. The Kauffman Firm Survey (KFS) found higher rates for both genders, perhaps because it is drawn from the Dun & Bradstreet database, which includes only young firms that are ―serious‖ enough to merit a credit report. But here again, a gap was found: Of the firms owned solely or primarily by women, 36 percent were employer firms, versus 44 percent for those owned solely or primarily...

  • Atmospheric pollution and climate change present major threats to biodiversity, both globally and within the UK. National and regional governments have commitments to address these issues. Responding to the threats posed by air pollution and climate change requires an understanding of the nature and extent of their impacts. Monitoring allows changes in biodiversity to be detected and quantified and therefore provides objective evidence on which to develop scientific understanding, policy and management responses.
