  • Engineered barriers to isolate potentially harmful waste from humans and ecosystems have been used for over 35 years, and much has been written about them and their constituent components. However, few reports have provided an overall assessment of the performance of engineered barrier systems. The last broad assessment was conducted in 1995 (Rumer and Mitchell, 1995). Since that time, new materials and sensor technologies have been introduced and models to predict contaminant transport have improved.

  • In 1993, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Industrial Technology (OIT) established a group of seven industries designated as Industries of the Future (IOF). These industries were selected for their high energy use and large waste generation. The original IOF included the aluminum, chemicals, forest products, glass, metalcasting, petroleum refining, and steel industries. Each industry was asked to provide a future vision and a road map detailing the research required to realize its vision.

  • The evolution of technological advances in infrared sensor technology, image processing, “smart” algorithms, knowledge-based databases, and their overall system integration has resulted in new methods of research and use in medical infrared imaging. The development of infrared cameras with focal plane arrays not requiring cooling added a new dimension to this modality. New detector materials with improved thermal sensitivity are now available and production of high-density focal plane arrays (640×480) has been achieved.

  • Le Trong Trai et al. (2001) argued that with an abundance of heavily degraded land available for rehabilitation, forest management and other land uses, there is considerable potential for cash earning activities in the buffer zone (for example through economic crop plantations). This activity would also reduce the overall pressure on the forest resources in the nature reserve. They also suggested that current arrangements for forest development and management in the bare lands are costly, create social tensions and seem to be unsustainable in the long run.

  • But what does this trend in competition do for the cities? The answer is certainly not definitive, but in its emerging outlines, it is disturbing yet also offers hope. To the extent that this tendency makes cheap labor locations around the world more accessible, it fur- ther amplifies the competitive disadvantage of urban locations in the United States. The impact of increases in trade with low-wage countries on U.S. employment, especially on low-skilled workers, has been hotly debated (Freeman, 1995; Wood, 1995).

  • Appropriate investment advice for individual investors is to invest financial wealth in an asset that is not highly correlated with their human capital in order to maximize diversification benefits over the entire portfolio. For people with “safe” human capital, it may be appropriate to invest their financial assets aggressively. Mortality Risk and Life Insurance. Because human capital is often the biggest asset an investor has, protecting human capital from potential risks should also be part of overall investment advice.

  • This book addresses the contribution of transport and energy infrastructure to poverty reduction. This is a core issue for ADB and for the other three donors that collaborated in producing this book (DFID, JBIC, and World Bank). The country studies examined this contribution in the People's Republic of China (PRC), India, and Thailand, which (particularly in the case of the PRC and India) are of strategic importance for overall ADB lending, and account for a substantial portion of total ADB lending for transport and energy....

  • Priority-setting approaches in the area of health have slighted SRH concerns. A disease-oriented approach to health priority setting has not recognized the importance of preventing unintended pregnancies. The consequences of these extend beyond the direct individual disability concerns to social participation, familial health and complex empowerment issues. Returns to investments in SRH are, therefore, difficult to assess and often omitted from policy dialogues.

  • Overall, the rapid development in the market for credit risk transfer played a major role altering banks’ functions. Structurally, securitization allowed banks to turn traditionally illiquid claims (overwhelmingly in the form of bank loans) into marketable securities. The development of securitization has therefore allowed banks to off-load part of their credit exposure to other investors thereby lowering regulatory pressures on capital requirements allowing them to raise new funds.

  • Just one example suffices here to corroborate our approach of cautious optimism with regard to the immediate future of the media in the Arab world. Our study confirmed that even though the region’s print media had to go through significant structural changes in these trying times, it has weathered the storm much better than other markets, with the overall daily circulation and the number of titles continuing to rise. The new media laws that came into being in several countries have helped this growth considerably.

  • The Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL), through the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), has proposed that a large-scale wind test facility (LSWTF) be constructed to study, in full-scale, the behavior of low-rise structures under simulated extreme wind conditions. To determine the need for, and potential benefits of, such a facility, the Idaho Operations Office of the DOE requested that the National Research Council (NRC) perform an independent assessment of the role and potential value of an LSWTF in the overall context of wind engineering research.
