  • Increasing physiological and psychological impairments with age does not mean that ageing is equivalent with illness, diseases or dependency. In fact, earlier studies could not explore that a type or the pathogenesis of diseases is only caused by the ageing process (Steinhagen-Thiessen & Borchelt 1996). Brody and Schneider (1986) distinguished between age-dependent and age-related diseases. Age-dependent diseases are involved in the ageing process and cause the exponentially increasing mortality risk with advanced age, for instance heart and cerebrovascular diseases.

  • Water resources could in principle be managed by several users as common property resources. In the absence of effective mechanisms for co-management at the watershed or river-basin level, however, water resources often become open access. Conflicts often arise between upstream and downstream users. Irrigators at the tail end of a large irrigation system may have the formal right to water, but their share may be taken by farmers near the head of the system, who may even have switched to higher value and more water consumptive crops through collusion with irrigation officials.

  • The process of counting correct answers began by assigning a value to the responses to each question (Table 6). Where countries have substituted questions, or reworded them, we have also given a value of 1 to a correct response and 0 in all other cases. In the case of a country with fewer than 8 financial knowledge questions we have rescaled each score as necessary (typically multiplying by a factor of 8/7).

  • In Southeast Asia there have been found a lot of rubber-bearing plants. Most of them are members of the one family, Apocynaceae, but there are also some important species from other families, like Ficus elastica Roxb. and Bleekrodea tonkinensis Dub. & Eber., which both belongs to the family Moraceae. The first seeds for the cultivation of the rubber were sent to Asia, Sri Lanka, in 1876, but these first attempts to grow the rubber trees (Hevea brasiliensis Muell. Arg.) were not successful. It was not until 1877 when 22 rubber trees were plated in Singapore. From...

  • And in fact, that neuroprotection is indeed possible is demonstrated beyond doubt by the neglected survivor of that host of neuroprotectant agents: hypothermia. Hypothermia was demonstrated to be effective in a score of animal experiments, and it has now become recommended intervention in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Hypothermia is not a drug, but it demonstrates that neuroprotection is a reality, not a myth. Besides, it obviously shows that animal experiments were right, humans treated with hypothermia fare better than untreated ones, just like animal studies had predicted.

  • According to the Office of the Surgeon General, seven of ten Americans die each year from a preventable chronic disease such as heart disease, diabetes and many forms of cancer. In addition to the high morbidity of chronic disease, there is an associated high economic cost. For instance, health care spending in the United States reached $2.3 trillion last year, which is 16% of the country’s gross domestic product. As much of this cost is due to treating chronic disease, the Office of the Surgeon General has declared that disease prevention is its number one priority.

  • More needs to be done now to get traffi c off the roads and on to rail. Real prices have to be charged that refl ect the real costs caused by polluters.

  • In addition to return and diversification goals, public pension funds target investments to benefit the economic climate where their beneficiaries live and work. Often public employees retire in their state. For example, the New York State and Local Retirement System (New York State Common) has 77 percent of retirees and beneficiaries that remain New York State resi- dents (NYSLRS 006). Pension funds therefore adopt targeted investment policies to seek competitive returns while also allowing a fund to create healthy communities benefiting their retirees and beneficiaries.  ...

The average daily milk production data at 6.52 kg for crossbreds, 2.10 kg for indigenous cattle and 4.44 kg for buffaloes (NSSO, 2007) suggests that the productivity of these animals is far below their genetic potential.

  • The objective of this paper is to estimate the covariance matrix of stock returns. This is a fundamental question in empirical Finance with implications for portfolio selection and for tests of asset pricing models such as the CAPM. The traditional estimator — the sample covariance matrix — is seldom used because it imposes too little structure. When the number of stocks N is of the same order of magnitude as the number of historical returns per stock T, the total number of parameters to estimate is of the same order as the total size of the data set, which is clearly problematic.
