  • Each group member should document their activities. This is important as human memory is shaky at best and it is likely that each team member will be required to recall details of their activity. There is nothing more frustrating to a manager than to hear an employee say, "I can't remember what I did." If one can't remember, how can the team trust that what they did was correct? Documentation is the responsibility of the team members and will often be a saving grace for them. It is likely that surprises and conflicts may occur during the course of the...

  • It was easy to learn that she was not the Princess. I did that by going into a stationer's shop and asking for a photograph of the royal lovers. It was not quite so easy to find out who she was, without pinning my new secret on my sleeve; but luckily everyone in Biarritz boasted knowledge of the King's affairs, and the affairs of the pretty Princess. Christopher Trevenna made himself agreeable after dinner to the lady with the nose, who would probably have shrunk away in fear if she had known that she was talking with the Marqués de Casa Triana.

  • Pasture has a pH of 7, which is neutral. However, starch digestion from low fibre grain results in acid build up, thus lowering rumen pH. To maintain healthy rumen the diet of a dairy cow requires adequate amounts of physically effective fibre. Physically effective fibre is obtained from feed such as hay, silage and other forages. Farmers must be cautious when adding silage to the diet as it has a naturally lower pH of 4.5 due to the fermentation process. As a result many feed rations may be inadvertently lowering rumen pH...

  • Given the extensive literature on risk premia in equity markets, relatively little is known about expected returns and risk premia in the corporate bond market. Recent empirical evidence by Elton et al. (2001) suggests that corporate bonds earn an expected excess return over default-free government bonds, even after correcting for the likelihood of default and tax differences. As shown by Elton et al. (2001), part of this expected excess return is due to the fact that changes in credit spreads (if no default occurs) are systematic, implying that the risk of these changes should be priced.

  • Moreover, the question of whether and over what time frame negative (positive) externalities might be eliminated (rewarded), or how these externalities are an element of the company’s business model, is up for debate.

  • For the executive, physical needs have probably already been satisfi ed in the preceding middle management career and are not relevant. Security is arguably reduced for the executive, due to higher risk of dismissal for poor performance. Satisfaction of the need for belonging is also questionable, as the holding of the power to discipline or dismiss other employees in a fi rm pre- sumably reduces the ties of friendship to them.
