  • We rst construct Pan-European size, book-to-market, and momentum risk factors for stocks. Then, we report on the average performance of European mutual funds over our time period using these benchmarks. Our ndings are similar to those of many studies of U.S. mutual funds (e.g., Carhart, 1997 and Wermers, 2000). Speci cally, the median one-factor and four-factor alphas are -0.90%/year and -0.32%/year, respectively. This nding indicates that our benchmarks successfully control for common variation in European equity mutual fund returns....

Based on the initial work and characterization, more comprehensive case reviews were undertaken of six distinct types of investment funds and one fund management company.

  • This research also differs from that of O’Loughlin and Arkoudis in that whereas the participants in their study were both undergraduate and postgraduate, in the current study they are undergraduates only, but representing a range of disciplines, namely, Nursing, Business, Engineering and Information Technology. Also differing from the O’Loughlin and Arkoudis study is the fact that for most of the participants in the research reported here, the results obtained in the July 2010 IELTS Test were not ‘exit scores’.

  • The Backchecker (usually the Originator of the document, but may be another designated designer other than the Checker) reviews the Checker corrections and comments (red and blue/pencil marks). If the Backchecker agrees with the comments, he places a green check next to the red. If the Backchecker does not agree with the comments and then explains to the Checker a valid reason why the original item is correct, the Backchecker then writes the word “stet” in green adjacent to the red marks to indicate that the red is no longer valid and that the Checker has withdrawn his...

  • Volunteers report on a variety of staff meeting survival tactics. Some do Zen exercises in their heads. Others doodle. Some prepare lessons. Others plan their vacations. The winners are those who listen. Some listen for information. Others analyze the speakers' language skills, listening for clues to their students' use of language and rhetoric. Some listen to the group dynamics and the power plays. Others listen to the bits they are interested in and tune out for the rest. But just as you are taking measure of your colleagues, so they are taking measure of you.

  • Third, we find that after accounting for luck, the percentage of funds with negative alphas in the population is approximately equal to 20% across all categories, while the proportion of funds with positive performance is much lower (it amounts to 1.9% of all funds in the population). It implies that the performance of the industry as a whole is not so bad because about 80% of the funds generate a performance sufficiently high to cover their expenses. The negative average performance documented in past studies is not due to the majority of funds but is caused by 20% of the funds....

  • Since the issue of urban poverty cuts at the heart of social policy in the United States, it is not surprising that ideology plays a substantial role in many of the debates about it. The hypotheses often reflect ideological, as well as empirical, social science debates. This is unavoidable. Nonetheless, the focal point of this article is not on ideology but rather on what may reasonably be claimed to be known about inner-city poverty. Ideology may well be critical to the decision about what to believe and what policies are to be preferred.

  • This paper addresses all these issues by measuring the impact of luck on mutual fund performance. Specifically, we use the False Discovery Rate (F DR) introduced by Benjamini and Hochberg (1995) in the statistical literature—the F DR measures the proportion of lucky funds among the significant funds. We extend this methodology by developing a new approach which allows us to separately compute the F DR among funds with significant positive estimated alphas (called hereafter the best funds) and funds with significant negative estimated alphas (called hereafter the worst funds).

  • For example, SLAT Prime Obligation Fund disclosed a variety of asset purchases occurring in the year ended June 30, 2009, but did not disclose transaction dates. Second, even if the date of the support was disclosed, in many cases that date represented when the sponsor chose to provide direct support, but the direct support may have been preceded by indirect support such as guarantees that were important in stabilizing the NAV, reassuring investors and preventing runs.

  • Furthermore, the explanatory scope of TSC sometimes is misunder- stood as stopping short at the boundaries of the physical body, leaving embeddedness out of the account. However, the main unit of the analysis of cognition arguably is the on-going interaction between the embodied agent and the context of action. An adequate description of bodily-based experience should begin in the agent’s relationship to the surroundings, because experience arises from the interaction between agent and context.

  • Session handling, credit card transactions, and password recovery are just a few examples of Web-enabled business logic processes that malicious hackers have abused to compromise major websites. There are many forms of business logic vulnerabilities commonly exploited by attackers. These vulnerabilities are routinely overlooked during QA because the process is intended to test what a piece of code is supposed to do and not what it can be made to do.

  • In project evaluation, there’s a distinction between “outcome evaluation” – what should we do with the results of the project? – “accountability evaluation” – has the project team done the job properly? – and “developmental evaluation” – what can we learn from the project about how to do projects better? In assessing a project, it’s a good idea to combine assessment of the “product” – the outcome of the project – with the process of carrying it out.

  • Areas with high concentrations of air-borne particulate matter are more likely to experience fogs, because these particles are preferred nucleation sites for water droplets. Smoke and soot are also very undesirable aesthetically. Soot is formed during combustion when the supply of oxygen is insufficient for complete conversion of carbon to carbon oxides. Its formation is mainly a problem in the combustion of liquid and solid fuels (oil, coal, or wood), because molecular-scale mixing of fuel and oxygen is not as easy here as it is in the combustion of natural gas (see below).

  • A new large section of the airport shopping centre was opened in 1989. On the same occasion, a painting on enamelled steel plates was unveiled on the outside wall of the terminal building facing the central Nytorv Square. The artist Hanne Salamon was given a free hand to create this work of art. She says that her main intention was to create something simple with bright colours that would catch the eye of the busy passers-by. The strong colours of this work add life to the huge grey and white surfaces so characteristic of the airport buildings.
