  • Airborne suspended particulate matter can be of primary origin, i.e. emitted directly into the atmosphere or of secondary origin, i.e. formed in the atmosphere from gaseous species by either homogeneous or heterogeneous chemical reactions. Due to these different emission sources, particles have different chemical composition and size distributions. Depending on their size, particles have a different potential to be transported over either long or short distances [1]. Primary particles can be produced from either natural or anthropogenic sources.

  • Third, the demand for medical goods has increased. Consumer expenditure on these goods more than doubled between 1982 and 1986 and by 1990 had reached nearly seven times the 1982 level. Hospital and general practitioner fees are paid by the state in China, so this growth in consumer spending suggests that the people are paying increased attention to their health, and have begun to buy expensive health-related products. As a result of higher incomes, dramatic changes in the Chinese lifestyle are occurring.

  • When purchasing wine, the intrinsic attributes color, type of wine and vintage have been found to influence choice as well as extrinsic attributes including familiarity, price, quality/reliability and suitability. Although the primary extrinsic product attributes influencing the wine purchase decision include the brand, the label and the specific terms utilized in describing wine, Gluckman (1990) advises that the quality of wine is an important characteristic and that the attributes that signal quality to consumers can be either extrinsic or intrinsic.

  • Third, we computed VAIs for each shot in each film. The purpose of these calculations was to determine the relative amount ofmotion andmovement in shots of different duration and whether that relation had changed over the course of 75 years of popular film. Since both dimensions, shot length and VAI per shot, are strongly skewed, we transformed each. We took the logarithmof each shot duration, and because VAI is based on correlations, we used the r-to-z transformfor VAIs. These transformations created roughly normal distributions along both dimensions for all films....

  • Mobile money is often successful because it is considerably cheaper than other alternatives to cash. In an international comparison of 26 banks, McKay and Pickens (2010) found that branchless banking (including mobile money) was 19 percent cheaper on average than alternative services. At low transaction amounts or for informal money transfer options, this difference more than doubled. 5 In Kenya M-PESA was routinely one-third to one-half as expensive as alternative systems.

  • What factors underlie industry differences in research intensity and productivity growth? We develop a multi-sector endogenous growth model allowing for industry specific parameters in the production functions for output and knowledge, and in consumer preferences. We find that long run industry differences in both productivity growth and R&D intensity mainly reflect differences in "technological opportunities", interpreted as the parameters of knowledge production. These include the capital intensity of R&D, knowledge spillovers, and diminishing returns to R&D.

  • In their feedback, HEIs have expressed the wish that second-round audits would go deeper into the operations of HEIs than the first audits and that audits be more closely linked to the strategic goals of individual institutions. Compared to the European quality assurance principles, the Finnish audit model has encompassed nearly all higher education activities. HEIs have also expressed their wish to have a quality label that they could use in international cooperation.

  • The most recent groupware system used in 2002 offers numerous services of which almost exclusively the central document database, the group calendar and the to do list were used. From the user’s point of view the main advantages of the use of groupware can be found in an improved access to information and increased control of the per- formed work. On the other hand, the use of the system consumed an additional amount of time and the personal contacts among the users were reduced. Overall, the users see more advantages than disadvantages.

  • Query processing takes place on a database front-end while signal-processing functions are executed on the sensor nodes involved in the query. The query execution engine on the database front-end includes a mechanism for interacting with remote sensors. On each sensor a lightweight query execution engine is responsible for executing signal processing functions and sending data back to the front-end. In COUGAR, we assume that there...

  • For much of its history, New York City has thrived as a place that both sus- tained a large middle class and elevated countless people from poorer back- grounds into the ranks of the middle class. The city was never cheap and parts of Manhattan always remained out of reach, but working people of modest means—from forklift operators and bus drivers to paralegals and museum guides—could enjoy realistic hopes of home ownership and a mea- sure of economic security as they raised their families across the other four boroughs.

  • As can be seen in Table 1, the number of observations available is large and has grown continuously throughout the period studied. Overall, there are data on over 3 million loans for the five dates analysed. This number of observations ensures the efficiency of the econometric estimates presented in the following section. The majority of companies’ loans are not secured by collateral, or in other words, have only a personal guarantee. Thus, on average, almost 85% of loans have no collateral.
