Write your name, Centre number and candidate number in the spaces at the top of this page.
Write these details on your answer sheets if they are not already printed.
Answer all questions.
Write your answers clearly on the separate answer sheets. Use a pencil.
You may use the question paper for any rough work, but you must write your answers in pencil on the
answer sheets. You will have no extra time for this, so you must finish in one and a half hours.
At the end of the examination, you should hand in both the question paper and the answer sheets....
Political economy or economics is a study of mankind in the ordinary business of life; it examines that part of
individual and social action which is most closely connected with the attainment and with the use of the material requisites
Thus it is on the one side a study of wealth; and on the other, and more important side, a part of the study of man. For
man's character has been moulded by his every-day work, and the material resources which he thereby procures, more than
by any other influence unless it be that of his religious ideals; and the two great forming...
.ETHICS AND THE UNIVERSITY
Ethics and the University brings together two closely related topics, the practice of ethics in the university (“academic ethics”) and the teaching of practical or applied ethics in the university.
The use of implants has, little by little, been imposed
on the world of dentistry. Some years ago,
it was strongly suggested that the practitioners
asked implant patients to sign a consent form to
release the dentist from all responsibility in case of
failure. Then, one day a patient in France sued his
dentist for having prepared his teeth for a fixed
partial denture without suggesting the implant alternative.
The patient won the case. Soon it might
be necessary to ask patients to sign a form indicating
that they have refused implant treatment.
This book is written for the general practitioner
in small animal practice. The aim is to supply all
the information required to be able to practice
good dentistry. There is a real opportunity, if not
an absolute need, to improve the practice of
dentistry and oral surgery in general practice.
While the discipline is taught in most veterinary
schools, the time restrictions of the basic
veterinary curriculum generally do not allow
adequate coverage. This book presents
comprehensive and detailed knowledge of how
to prevent, diagnose and treat common dental
diseases in the dog and cat.
Lean Thinking Brings Powerful Financial Incentives to Resource Conservation and Pollution
Prevention Improvement. Pollution prevention adherents often advocate a “pollution prevention
pays” theme to promote more sustainable production behavior. As well, pollution prevention
guidance encourages facilities to examine the total costs of polluting behavior to ensure investment
decisions are fairly and completely evaluated. This “Total Cost Assessment” approach, according
to advocates, can produce a strong business case (e.g.
We also learned many new things about interventions to mitigate the effect of low health literacy. First, we identified several design features of interventions that were effective in one or a few studies (enumerated above); they all warrant further study in broader populations. Second, interventions focused on a broader range of outcomes, allowing us to make inferences about effect across outcomes.
This is an essential guide to success for anyone attending a job interview. Although it is fundamental to getting any job, the interview is still an experience most professionals dread. The fears of losing face, drying up and ultimately failing to get the job can lead to nervousness and low confidence. In this book, Jenny Rogers offers practical advice on research and preparation, giving guidance on how to behave during the whole selection process and present your skills and experience in a relevant manner.
These Emerging Conclusions offer a preliminary analysis of the findings of four reports
from the Economies of Conflict policy research series, a project of Fafo’s Programme
for International Co-operation and Conflict Resolution (PICCR). These
reports are the first to emerge from the series, which examines the links between
certain private sector activity and armed conflict.
This paper reports the results of a preliminary experiment on the detection of semantic variants of terms in a French technical document. The general goal of our work is to help the structuration of terminologies. Two kinds of semantic variants can be found in traditional terminologies : strict synonymy links and fuzzier relations like see-also. We have designed three rules which exploit general dictionary information to infer synonymy relations between complex candidate terms. The results have been examined by a human terminologist.
This paper explores the issue of using different co-occurrence similarities between terms for separating query terms that are useful for retrieval from those that are harmful. The hypothesis under examination is that useful terms tend to be more similar to each other than to other query terms. Preliminary experiments with similarities computed using first-order and second-order co-occurrence seem to confirm the hypothesis. Term similarities could then be used for determining which query terms are useful and best reflect the user's information need.
For our empirical analysis, we adopt and modify the structural dynamic conditional cor-
relation (SDCC) framework proposed by Weber (2008b). Daily market index series are
deployed for this examination. The sample is divided into two sub-periods, 1997-2001 and
2002-2008. With this structure we can grasp the eects of the new policy, allowing domes-
tic investors to access the B market, which was implemented in February 2001.
In a series of preliminary tests, we examined the pattern of mean daily returns
throughout the lunar month, including visual inspections of return histograms. This
examination reveals one interesting regularity. We observe that high returns tend to
cluster around the new moon date, while low returns tend to cluster around the full moon
date. Following this observation, we structure our returns tests to reflect the possible
difference between new moon and full moon periods.
