  • The belief that children will take care of the parents in the old age is eroding in India where the family size has been cut down as a result of the demographic process (Dandelkar, 1996). The situation in the urban areas shows a rejection of older people by the next generation and this is spreading to rural areas (Desai, 1985). In the nuclear family regime, the position of the aged becomes more vulnerable and is treated as a burden to the family (Nayar, 1992). The social negligence of the aged occurs due to cultural, social and economic relations within the...

  • MERs can range from less than 1% for money market funds to more than 3% for some specialty funds. More complex funds tend to have higher MERs because the manager needs to do more to effectively manage the fund, and these funds are more costly to run. Index funds usually have very low MERs because duplicating an index involves less research and less trading. For this reason, they often outperform actively managed funds over the long term. However, keep in mind that a low MER doesn’t necessarily mean more money in your pocket. For example, you’ll make more on a fund...

  • To the extent that earnings and book values are some of the factors used to weight stocks in the portfolio, FI will systematically overweight “value” stocks and underweight “growth” stocks. Moreover, to the extent that FI attempts to underweight stocks with (temporarily) high market capitalizations, there will be a tendency for an FI portfolio to contain smaller-capitalization stocks compared with a cap-weighted index. According to Eugene Fama and Kenneth French (2007), RAFI is a “triumph of marketing, and not of new ideas.

  • Health care and hygiene programmes can help in control. Watering at night or at midday reduces the risk of being bitten by flies. Preventive measures before the onset of the disease (Chemoprophylaxis) and curative measures after the disease is clinically evident (Chemotherapy) have shown varying success in controlling and combating the disease (Table 32). As for all trypanosome diseases, drug resistance due to misuse and especially by using too small doses or diluting the drug with water or some other liquid is an increasing problem.

  • Greenway is one of several examples of how the private sector is committed to this transformation and has taken charge through leading the health information technology and electronic health record industry. Greenway was founded on the premise that HIT & EHRs dramatically reduce medical errors, lower costs, improve quality and efficiency and create a substantial return on investment for physicians and practices among many other constituencies.

  • Perhaps the most far-reaching regulatory change affecting net worth was the liberal- ization of the accounting rules for supervisory goodwill. 19 Effective in July 1982, the Bank Board eliminated the existing ten-year amortization restriction on goodwill, thereby allow- ing S&Ls to use the general GAAP standard of “no more than 40 years” in effect at the time.

  • The process of urbanization in India is at a critical point of transition. India has a young and rapidly growing population, a potential demographic dividend that needs to be tapped accordingly. Addressing life in India’s cities is a central pillar of inclusive growth. McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) estimates that cities could generate 70 percent of net new jobs created by 2030, produce more than 70 percent of Indian GDP, and drive a near fourfold increase in per capita incomes across the nation.112 And yet, cities are not just home to the prosperous.

  • The second challenge is to ensure that health is prioritized within overall development and economic policies. This means looking beyond the health system and addressing the broad determinants of ill-health - low levels of education, poverty, unequal gender relations, high risk behaviours, and an unhealthy environment - as well as raising the profile of health within national poverty reduction and government reform processes.

  • Bladder, uterine, and rectal prolapse are common sequelae of childbirth. Sometimes bulging is obvious on initial inspection, but other times it may only be evident when the patient bears down as if she were attempting to void and then defecate. The examiner should be appropriately positioned before undertaking this evaluation, because some women will lose urine with this maneuver. For many women with prolapse, diagnosis is only possible after a more detailed gynecologic examination (see Chapters 10 and 14)....

  • Recent imperfect capital market theories (e.g., Bernanke and Gertler (1989), Gertler and Gilchrist (1994), Kiyotaki and Moore (1997)) predict that changing credit market conditions can have very di®erent e®ects on small and large ¯rms' risk. Agency costs induced by asymmetry in the infor- mation held by ¯rms and their creditors make it necessary for ¯rms to use collateral when borrowing in the credit markets. Small ¯rms, it is argued, typically do not have nearly as much collateral as large ¯rms and will not have the same ability to raise external funds.

Three prob- lems are new to the top 10 of least concern and one problem in the group is new to the survey. “Exporting My Products/Services” holds onto the 75th ranking, a position held for six of seven editions that it has been listed as a problem. It moved up one position in 2000, replaced by the problem “Y2K Impacts.

  • This article compares and contrasts two technologies for delivering broadband wireless Internet access services: ‘‘3G’’ vs. ‘‘WiFi’’. The former, 3G, refers to the collection of third-generation mobile technologies that are designed to allow mobile operators to offer integrated data and voice services over mobile networks. The latter, WiFi, refers to the 802.11b wireless Ethernet standard that was designed to support wireless LANs.

  • Obviously, there are efforts already in progress to improve risk management in the financial services industry initiated by such bodies as the Financial Stability Board and the G20. Many of these efforts are highly relevant, such as the re-alignment of individual compensation with institutional and systemic goals. To avoid replication, our report will not dwell further on initiatives already underway.

  • Foreseeing the potential risks of the disease, regulations, restrictions and prohibitions on imports from South America were introduced and imposed in the 1950’s as required by Article IV in the Pacific Plant Protection Agreement for the Asia and Pacific region. In addition, the Association of Natural Rubber Producing Countries (ANRPC) introduced the ANRPC Agreement on SALB to complement the aforementioned agreement. The International Rubber Research and Development Board (IRRDB) also carried out research and undertook measures to exclude SALB from the region.

  • In 1994-95 the national coordinator was addressed by a national teachers’ association with the request to develop a model programme for kindergartens which represent an independent educational institution within the Czech educational system.

  • Stratified medicine relies heavily on data analysis and the amount of medically relevant data that are available electronically increases dramatically. However, these data are generated in complex forms and are acquired and recorded in various ways. Incompatibility among research databases, electronic medical records and laboratory information management systems is then an issue. The challenge is to organise electronic data and to make them usable for research.

  • The trend in typical calls to our Regulatory Helpline shows a growing maturity in BSA/AML compliance. It is important to remember that the BSA/AML regulatory scheme is still relatively young; SAR filing for depository institutions has only been in place since 1996, and more recently for other industries. Nevertheless, we can see from the types of calls we get that compliance professionals are becoming more comfortable with the technical aspects of filing and are focusing more on how to work more effectively with law enforcement to help catch criminals.

  • It is often said that computers are revolutionizing science and engineering. By using computers we are able to construct complex engineering designs such as space shuttles. We are able to compute the properties of the universe as it was fractions of a second after the big bang. Our ambitions are ever-increasing. We want to create even more complex designs such as better spaceships, cars, medicines, computerized cellular phone systems, and the like. We want to understand deeper aspects of nature. These are just a few examples of computer-supported modeling and simulation.
