  • The Charity Commission is the independent regulator of charities in England and Wales. Its aim is to provide the best possible regulation of charities in England and Wales in order to increase charities’ effectiveness and public confidence and trust. Most charities must register with the Commission, although some special types of charity do not have to register. There are some 180,000 registered charities in England and Wales. In Scotland the framework is different, and the Commission does not regulate Scottish charities.

  • Unbundling the deposit component of an insurance contract leads to the separate recognition and measurement of the financial asset or financial liability arising under the deposit component, and the insurance component of the contract. If the deposit unbundling rules did not apply and the accounting policies of the insurer or reinsurer did not require all assets and liabilities under the contract to be recognised, liabilities might be incorrectly recognised as income and assets as expenses.

  • While the discussion of abnormal profit generation in inefficient markets can apply to any number of asset classes that trade in private markets, most of these markets suffer from a lack of data availability. The real estate market is an exception in this respect, and therefore provides an excellent laboratory for constructing a systematic view of whether and how informed institutional-level investors can generate abnormal profits through active trading in a somewhat inefficient market.

  • Nonetheless, data is data, and whilst the interpretation may be suspect (which can happen with even the best controlled studies), the data is the most valuable asset in a research paper. Of course insight that either consolidates or furthers our understanding is vital, but without data it can be nothing more than an armchair idea. Many journals require the highest levels of scientific rigour, which may make some research inaccessible - really a form of scientific censorship.

  • The chapters in this book reflect leading edge ideas, reflections and observations. Even though the modern era of sleep research evolved from Aserinksky’s observations of rapid eye movements in the sleep of babies, most work is nonetheless done in adults. There is much less formal work done in youngsters and virtually none in utero and pregnancy itself is virtually unexplored. So, Dr Miller et al’s chapter reviewing sleep in pregnancy is particularly welcome as it incorporates current thinking in how disordered sleep impacts other adult pathological processes.

  • The first report of a quantitative risk evaluation applied to health goes back to Laplace, in the late eighteenth century, which calculated the probability of death among people with and without vaccination for smallpox. With Pasteur's studies in the late nineteenth century, it was possible to use the tools of statistics to evaluate the factors related to communicable diseases, giving birth to the concept of epidemiological risk (Covello; Munpower, 1985, Czeresnia, 2004).

  • Ownership rates across all age groups increased between 1985 and 2003. Again, this is a well- documented and understood change that has been driven by a number of economic factors, including, but not limited to, falling interest rates, rising standards of living, public policies helping low- and middle-income families afford home ownership. Among the elderly population, the ownership rate for population 85 and over exhibited the highest increase – i.e., 16 percentage points. Data show that the ownership rate peaks at the age 62 to 74.

  • The advent of modernity has produced and incorporated to the human way of life a variety of technologies and the risk became the distinguishing feature of this generated complexity. More and more, the sources of hazards1 were associated with daily social practices. In today's society, it is difficult to separate the manmade dangers of the "natural" dangers (Beck, 2003). A flood for example, that occurred as a completely spontaneous phenomenon, today can happen as a consequence of human action on nature.

  • Ideally a screening test should detect all clinically significant prostate cancers and not benign pathologies. It has been normal practice that men who are found to have an abnormal serum PSA level should have a prostate biopsy. For example, the UK Prostate Cancer Risk Management Programme (PCRMP) states “if your PSA is definitely raised, a prostate biopsy is required to determine whether cancer is present” The justification for performing biopsy in men with an abnormal PSA is that they are at high risk of prostate cancer.

  • Selection of chemical markers is crucial for the quality control of herbal medicines, including authentication of genuine species, harvesting the best quality raw materials, evaluation of post- harvesting handling, assessment of intermediates and finished products, and detection of harmful or toxic ingredients. Ideal chemical markers should be the therapeutic components of herbal medicines. However, for most herbal medicines, the therapeutic components have not been fully elucidated or easily monitored.

  • If you are getting benefits as a wife or husband based on your spouse’s work, when you report the death to us, we will change your payments to survivors benefits. If we need more information, we will contact you. If you are getting benefits based on your own work, call or visit us, and we will check to see if you can get more money as a widow or widower. If so, you will receive a combination of benefits that equals the higher amount. You will need to complete an application to switch to survivors benefits, and we will need to...

  • One factor that discourages the use of new organizational techniques is the dependence of email clients, legacy file systems, and other applications on their own independent hierarchical structures. We agree with Boardman [Boardman02] that folder structures should be integrated – in our case, also integrated with our more flexible collection structure. Reporting tools with appropriate visualization are another class of very useful apps. A simple query based tool can be remarkably insightful and useful from “how I spend my time” to “count and space used” by different items.

  • As shown in Table 2, the area of agricultural land worldwide is larger than that of forests (FAOSTAT Resources 2009). Furthermore, non-wood fibres usually have high annual biomass yields per hectare which are equal or superior to that of woods (Pierce 1991). Approximately 30% of the forest area is used primarily for the production of wood. An additional 24% of the forest area is designated for multiple uses, which also includes the production of wood in most cases (FAO 2010).

  • Serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) is the only biomarker routinely used for the early detection of prostate cancer, but it is not a perfect test. Although PSA is highly specific for prostate, an elevated level is not specific for cancer, being increased in benign hyperplasia and prostatitis (Pungalia, 2006; Bozeman, 2002). Consequently, the majority of men with an increased serum PSA do not have prostate cancer and thus undergo unnecessary prostate biopsies.

  • Aboriginal peoples have distinctive perspectives and understandings, deriving from their cultures and histories and embodied in Aboriginal languages. Research that has Aboriginal experience as its subject matter must reflect these perspectives and understandings. In the past, research concerning Aboriginal peoples has usually been initiated outside the Aboriginal community and carried out by non Aboriginal people. Aboriginal people have had almost no opportunity to correct misinformation or to challenge ethnocentric and racist interpretations.

  • In addition to ovulation, another critical function occurs during the menstrual cycle. The woman’s body must be prepared in case fertilization occurs. Everything must be ready to nurture the developing embryo. Dur- ing the first two weeks of the cycle, estrogen causes the lining of the uterus to thicken. There is also an increase in the amount of blood that flows to this area. During the second half of the cycle, after ovulation has occurred, the follicle (now without the egg cell) develops into a yellow-colored body, the corpus luteum.

  • Small and micro enterprises are the outlets upon which the government and many development organizations rely to curb poverty and unemployment rates, including among the youth population. These small businesses, both formal and informal, help to absorb the local workforce. However, most young entrepreneurs lack the required financial services necessary to sustain themselves and grow. Currently only 4.2% of Yemen’s population has access to financial services.
