Most certainly, Latinas are facing a serious health care crisis that threatens to undermine the reproductive health and
overall well-being of themselves, their families and their communities. Despite the growing number of uninsured Latinas
and the signiﬁcant health disparities they face, health policy makers have paid little attention to the reproductive health
needs of Latinas. Against this backdrop, we are also witnessing an onslaught of attacks on the reproductive freedom of
women in this country that will no doubt disproportionately impact Latinas.
Since the 1980s, the Bank has made progress in integrating gen-
der issues into country work and lending, particularly in education
and health. For example, between 1995 and 2000 the Bank lent
more than $3.4 billion for girls’ education programs, and was also
the single largest lender in the world for health, nutrition, and pop-
ulation projects, three-quarters of which contained gender-respon-
sive actions. Attention to gender issues in World Bank Country
Assistance Strategies (CASs) also increased during this period.
This report presents preliminary findings from the 2010 Rwanda Demographic and Health Survey (2010 RDHS). Survey findings will be used by policy makers to evaluate the demographic and health status of the Rwandan population in order to formulate appropriate population and health policies and programs in Rwanda. The forthcoming final report and summary report of the RDHS will contain more detailed findings.
I am grateful for the support of Dr Brian Hindley and Dr Razeen Sally, of the
London School of Economics, whose guidance, encouragement and wisdom
were always available to me.
I wish to thank the intellectual property directors of pharmaceutical companies
and associations and the various government officials who openly and candidly
provided me with information regarding the realities of intellectual property
Given that thinking steps have been shown to be modestly correlated with the
efficiency of working memory (measured by digit span; see Devetag and Warglien, 2003)
and aging may reduce working memory or, potentially, some other cognitive process
related to strategic reasoning, these changes could lead older subjects to use lower values
of n, and to choose higher numbers than younger subjects.
The private bond market remains much smaller than that for the government. The
outstanding issuance of corporate bonds has risen to almost 10 percent of GDP in 2011, but
the market is still very concentrated in short duration rates, with a limited investor base and
less diversified issuers. This suggests that the private fixed income market is not a significant
long-term financing source for non-financial corporations.
Indexation: Around 90 percent of private bonds are linked to the DI rate, resulting in little
incentive for active trading.
industrialisation strategies adopted and economic policies followed have shown
great differences before and after 1980. An import substitution policy had been
implemented until 1980. However, after 1980, significant progress has been made
towards establishing the principles and fundamentals of a market economy through
the introduction of export-oriented industrialisation.
These reforms made significant contribution to the dynamism of the private sector
and improved the adaptability of Turkish economy to internal and external impacts.
In addition to the traditional FFS Medicare or Medicare
Managed Care (MMC) insurance, many elderly buy supplemental
insurance policies to cover prescription drugs
or catastrophic expenses. These supplemental policies are
known as MediGap plans, because they help fill gaps in
the available health insurance coverage. Some Medicare
beneficiaries are dual eligibles – covered by both Medicare
(health insurance for the aged) and Medicaid (health
insurance for the poor with chronic disabilities or endstage

uncertainties concerning Yahoo!'s expected financial performance (as described without limitation

Recurring themes woven throughout this budget include maintaining service levels in departments that have
had grants expire. Significant investments in public safety personnel, equipment and vehicles are included.
We are recommending, to the extent possible, to offset increases to our residents and employees when rates
have increased. Another theme you will see is our efforts to look toward the future.
The major news of the first quarter
was the rapid propagation of the
Conficker worm. Research indicates
its three variations have infected
more than 15 million computers,
weaving a massive zombie botnet,
since appearing on the scene in
November 2008. The botnet lay
dormant for weeks, leaving computer

only in the last days leading up to

This series of books ﬂows from workshops bringing public and
international lawyers and public and international policy makers
together for interdisciplinary discussion on selected topics and themes.
It aims to broaden both public and international laws’ understanding of
how these two areas intersect. Until now, international and public law
have mainly overlapped in discussions on how international law is
implemented domestically. This series is unique in consciously bringing
together public and international lawyers to consider and engage in each

In August 1976 the Committee on Technology and International Economic
and Trade Issues examined a number of technological issues and their
relationship to the potential entrepreneurial vitality of the U.S. economy. The
committee was concerned with:
• Technology and its effect on trade between the United States and other
countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and
• Relationships between technological innovation and U.S. productivity
and competitiveness in world trade; impacts of technology and trade on
In the 1990s the
overall rate of decline was somewhat higher than in the 1980s. Trends in annual
death rates by gender from 1981 to 1998 for three age groups of the old are shown
in Figure 2. Mortality for males in each age group shows a fairly regular decline
during the 20 years. For females in some age groups, the early 1980s were not
even a period of decline. This differential trend by gender is almost the opposite of
what occurred in the 1970s when females experienced greater decline than males.
Almost all motorized transportation today involves the combustion of fossil fuels, which
produces energy to be transformed into motion. This combustion is the reaction of the hydrogen
and carbon present in the fuels with oxygen in the air to produce–in the ideal world–water vapour
(H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Neither of these products is damaging to human health.
These criteria set a general framework for monitoring existing and proposed legislation. But monitoring
the actual policy needs of SME is difficult even in advanced economies. There is a need to establish
mechanisms for effective public-private sector dialogue and feedback from those who implement legislation.
Business associations from time to time can undertake studies of members’ needs and governments
anticipating a particularly acute problem or proposing new forms of legislation may commission surveys.
The term ‘food miles’ refers to the distance food travels from the location where it is grown to the
location where it is consumed, or in other words, the distance food travels from farm to plate. Recent
studies have shown that this distance has been steadily increasing over the last fi fty years. Studies
estimate that processed food in the United States travels over 1,300 miles, and fresh produce travels
over 1,500 miles, before being consumed.
