  • We therefore come from widely differing backgrounds: foreign ministers, finance and planning officials, policymakers in agriculture, science, and technology. Many of the Commissioners are cabinet ministers and senior economists in their own nations, concerned largely with the affairs of those countries. As Commissioners, however, we were acting not in our national roles but as individuals; and as we worked, nationalism and the artificial divides between "industrialized" and "developing", between East and West, receded.

  • The B2B Marketing community has been humbled by the recent recession.

This data set links the IAB-Establishment Panel with individual data for the entire population of workers from the Employment Statistics Register. Due to its administrative nature, one of the major advantages of this data set is that it offers very reliable information on individual daily wages inclusive of supplemental pay as long as such pay is subject to social security contributions.

  • This book deals with an Ayyubid-Mamluk Egyptian jurist's attempt to come to terms with the potential conflict between power, represented in the state, and authority, represented in the schools of law, particularly where one school enjoys a privileged status with the state. It deals with the history of the relationship between the schools of law, particularly in Mamluk Egypt, in the context of the running history of Islamic law from the formative period during which ijtihad was the dominant hegemony into the post-formative period during which taqlid came to dominate....

  • A processing department is an organizational unit where work is performed on a prod- uct and where materials, labor, or overhead costs are added to the product. For example, a Nalley’s potato chip factory might have three processing departments—one for preparing potatoes, one for cooking, and one for inspecting and packaging. A brick factory might have two processing departments—one for mixing and molding clay into brick form and one for firing the molded brick. Some products and services may go through a number of processing departments, while others may...

  • The Janus kinase–signal transducer and activator of transcription (JAK–STAT) pathway is utilized by a range of cytokines (interferons, IL-2 and IL-6 amongst others) that control survival, proliferation and differentiation responses in diverse cell types. The realisation that unregulated activation of this pathway is a key driver of not only chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and psoriasis, but also many cancers has identified its components as targets for therapeutic intervention by small molecule inhibitors and biologicals.

  • Potential negative consequences of early identification of cognitive impairment clearly exist.

  • For investments to provide local benefits, mechanisms need to be in place ensuring technical and economic viability, consistency with local land use plans and taxation regimes, and transfers of assets from nonviable projects. This should also include the scope for investment and associated land governance issues in countries’ broader development strategies that identify areas or crops where investment can provide the highest benefits based on agro-ecological endowments and existing land use intensity.

  • Skylines, and other directly related problems such as multiobjective opti- mization [Steuer 1986], maximum vectors [Kung et al. 1975; Matousek 1991], and the contour problem [McLain 1974], have been extensively studied and nu- merous algorithms have been proposed formain-memory processing. To the best of our knowledge, however, the first work addressing skylines in the context of databaseswasBorzsonyi et al. [2001],which develops algorithms based on block nested loops, divide-and-conquer, and index scanning. An improved version of block nested loops is presented in Chomicki et al.

  • The ownership of insurers and the scope of their activities may also pose market challenges. While competition is arguably limited by the presence of few players, such as in the Irish insurance system, the existence of several players is not the only measure of market competitiveness. Mobility across insurers is low in many OECD countries. It is also sometimes challenging to establish incentives for “healthy” and equitable competition among PHI insurers, as they face incentives to concentrate on good risks, thereby failing to cover more vulnerable individuals.

  • Second, within the wider pattern of concurrent care, we identified a more complex relationship between the two broader provider groups – for high users of GPs, consultation with some CAM practitioners (eg. acupuncturists) is associated with less frequent visits with a GP. It is possible that this finding reflects a change in women’s health-seeking behaviour as a result of what they perceive as a discouraging response by their GPs to their concerns or preferences [26,27].

  • Banks in Italy and Spain made bids for a large proportion of the funds allocated at the first three-year LTRO (Graph 3, centre panel), while the funding situation of banks in other regions improved indirectly. 2 Banks in Germany, Luxembourg and Finland, for example, did not take much additional funding at the first LTRO.

  • Hydraulic fracturing, like any deep drilling operation, is subject to the risk of leaks and spills that can cause areas to be contaminated by hazardous waste. In 1980, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) provided for the clean-up of abandoned hazardous waste and established liability to those who released the wastes to pay for clean-up [18]. Yet oil and gas exploration is exempt from clean-up of accidental spills, leaks, and problems from underground injection via the Energy Policy Act of 2005 [19].
