Both special events and mass gatherings require the kind of additional planning identified in the previous quote. For example, an amusement park that attracts a large number of people is not considered a special event because large crowds are expected.

  • Other Gram-Negative Bacteria Achromobacter xylosoxidans A. xylosoxidans (previously Alcaligenes xylosoxidans) is probably part of the endogenous intestinal flora and has been isolated from water sources. Immunocompromised hosts, including patients with cancer and post- chemotherapy neutropenia, cirrhosis, and chronic renal failure, are at increased risk. Nosocomial outbreaks of A. xylosoxidans infection have been attributed to contaminated fluids, and clinical illness has been associated with isolates from many sites, including blood (often in the setting of intravascular devices).

  • We first focus on four previous systemic financial crises that the United States has experienced since 1870. These include the crisis of 1873 (called the Great Depression until the 1930s), the 1893 crisis, the panic of 1907, and the Great Depression. Given that all of the earlier crises predate the creation of deposit insurance in 1933, and that three of the four crises predate the establishment of a central bank in the United States, one could well quibble about the claim that the relevant institutions are more comparable across centuries in the United States...

  • To preview the results, we nd that both capital inows and monetary policy shocks have a statistically signicant effect on real private credit, real residential investment and real house prices. Moreover, capital inows do not appear to be associated with inationary pressures or with substantial increases in output, suggesting that a central bank that follows a standard Taylor rule would see little reason to respond to these shocks.

  • The “tarp” paintings, made between 1986 and 1988, use tarpaulins for supports that previously covered army trucks. They are stretched and then painted or treated in some way by the artist. The random nature of the patterning caused by the wear to the tarpaulin provides the artist with a point of departure. It avoids the conscious or unconscious decision of where to put the holes, plates or antlers and how to manipulate the shape of the underlying support, because the tarpaulin has already been used.

  • The Inuit people live in the arctic region of North America. They are people confined for months in shelters during the long Arctic winter, when it is dark both day and night. With vast stretches of snow and ice reaching to the horizon in every direction, the men would go hunting on long treks alone, not returning home for days or weeks. In their art, the Inuit are impelled to make sense of this being confined and going out, this feeling of being far away, and coming back in to the center. The masks of the Inuit—going as far back as there is any record...
