A man of native intelligence and shrewdness, and of good business
training. Doctor Charles Harley Cleaveland might have rendered signal
service had he not proved tactless and turbulent and disposed to
controversialism. He knew little concerning Eclectic medicines, and
through his conduct in the matter of the resinoids he became the most
potent factor in bringing about the imbroglio which disrupted the
college and led to the institution of a rival school in 1856.
Estimating the results of legislative proposals to expand health insurance coverage is challenging, partly because there is so little empirical evidence concerning individual people’s responsiveness to health insurance mandates. Since 2007, adults in Massachusetts have been required to have health insurance or face penalties for noncompliance, but it may be too soon to infer the effect of mandates from that experience. Moreover, that experience itself could be unique to Massachusetts.
In recognition of the importance of establishing gender
equality around the world, the United Nations
Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) was
established as a separate fund within the United
Nations Development Program (UNDP) in 1984. At that
time, the General Assembly instructed it to “ensure
women’s involvement with mainstream activities.”3 The
Platform of Action resulting from the 1995 Beijing World
Conference on Women expanded this concept, calling
it “gender mainstreaming”—i.e.
To gain a better understanding of the possible role of credit in improving house-
hold food security and alleviating poverty in Malawi, in November 1994 the Inter-
national Food Policy Research Institute and the Department of Rural Development,
Bunda College of Agriculture, University of Malawi, initiated a research program on
rural financial markets and household food security in Malawi. The main objective
of the research program was to analyze the determinants of access to credit in Malawi
and its impact on farm and nonfarm income and on household food security.
I want salespeople to be able to purchase all the things in life that money can buy. Someone
once said, “Money isn’t everything,” but it was probably said by someone who didn’t have
much in the first place. One of the reasons you got into motorcycle sales is because some-
one told you that if you got into motorcycle sales, you’d have the opportunity to make
unlimited income, sky’s the limit. And if you’ve been in the business for any length of time,
you already know someone, maybe even in your dealership, who is making six figures. Your
whole concept needs to be,...
Global credit squeeze, escalating political tensions and monetary
tightening will weigh on economic growth in 2008. From 2006 to
2007, the annual growth rate decreased from 6.9% to 4.5%. Slower
growth in 2007 was attributable to the strength of the Turkish
currency, which hurt the export industry, the delayed effects of
monetary tightening in mid-2006 and a drought-related drop in
agricultural output. The most significant slowdowns in growth in
2007 were in agriculture, construction and manufacturing.
The International School of Gynecological and Reproductive Endocrinology
is the educational branch of ISGE entitled for the organization of educational
courses on behalf of the Society itself.
The mission of The International School of Gynecological and Reproductive
Endocrinology is to promote clinical education world-wide by aiding the
training of physicians from all nations in Gynecological Endocrinology and
Against this backdrop, the Vienna Policy Dialogue in preparation of the 2014 Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) will
explore how to firmly position gender equality and the empowerment of women and the protection of their rights in the
changing landscape of international development cooperation and in the evolving post-2015 UN development agenda.
Concerning the motives for consuming luxury brands, it has to be stated that the notion of ―buying to impress
others‖, still more or less serves as a strategic principle for the marketing management of luxury brands (Berry
1994; Dittmar 1994; Corneo and Jeanne 1997; Vigneron and Johnson 1999, 2004; O‘Cass and Frost 2002).
According to the theory of impression management, consumers are highly affected by the internal drive to create a
favorable social image from the outcome of their purchase behavior (Eagly and Chaiken 1993; Mandrik 1996;
Our new insight is on the interaction between relative labor turnover dynamics and lack of insurers’
premium ﬂexibility. A related possibility is that high labor turnover may be preferred by some
employers, especially small ﬁrms that employ homogenous workers with low job-speciﬁc human capital.
Workers tolerant of high turnover tend to be younger and healthier. By not offering health insurance,
despite the tax advantage, these ﬁrms deter older and less healthy workers.
Missing the Target researchers consistently heard of the need for global
actors to coordinate their efforts much more closely in the countries
where they work. The Interagency Task Team on Children and HIV
and AIDS (IATT)
, led by UNICEF and composed of representatives
from UNAIDS co-sponsors, donors, NGOs, academic institutions and
other organisations, is charged with helping coordinate policy and
programming on the country and global level.
This paper analyses the equilibrium level of private credit to GDP in 11
Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries on the basis of a number
of dynamic panels containing quarterly data on CEE economies, emerging
markets and developed OECD countries. In doing so, we propose a unify-
ing framework which includes factors driving both the demand for and the
supply of private credit.
A marketing plan is essential for every horticultural business and for efficient and
effective marketing of any horticultural product or service. A marketing plan serves as a
road map. It establishes objectives, recommended actions, and timing for achieving the
objectives. An understanding of the marketing planning process is also a valuable aid in
helping managers organize their thinking about the marketing process and the various
methods and procedures used. A strategic marketing plan takes into account the market
environment facing the business (e.g.
Based on the public consultations, relevant experiences and research, a number of criteria were developed for a
new program that puts the needs of pedestrians first. The criteria call for new street furniture elements to provide
exceptional design, universal accessibility, safety, quality maintenance, pedestrian-oriented placement and sustainable
components. Revenues from selective advertising could finance the program and return a benefit to the City for the
privilege of occupying the public realm.
The principles in this document are the result of the consultations and research.
Most interesting was the discovery that cytochrome P450
aromatase, which is capable of converting androgens into
estrogens, is present in the testis [25–39]. During this
same period of discovery, others were using the radioim-
munoassay to identify steroids present in body fluids and
estrogen concentrations were found to be relatively high
in seminal and rete testis plasma [40–48]. Thus, up to the
1990's it appears that most scientific inquiry into estro-
gen's presence in the male remained a curiosity, as well as
a worry that estrogen exposure during development was
Age-related hearing loss or presbycusis is mainly caused by changes in the inner ear. However, your genes and loud noises (such as from rock concerts or music headphones) may play a large role. Initially there is difficulty in hearing high-frequency sounds, such as someone talking. As hearing gets worse, it may become difficult to hear sounds at lower pitches. Hearing aids Telephone amplifiers and other assistive devices may be helpful. A cochlear implant (Surgery) may be recommended for certain women with very severe hearing loss.
It was noted before that several synthetic copper chemicals are used in organic agriculture as
fungicides. Although small amounts of copper are essential for life, it is a toxic element at higher
levels. There have been reports of people committing suicide by ingesting it. Vineyard sprayers have
experienced liver disease from exposure to it. It is corrosive to the skin and eyes and is absorbed
through the skin. It causes reproductive problems in birds, hamsters and rats. It has been shown to
induce heart disease in the offspring of pregnant hamsters that were exposed to it.
The socialist fiscal system was implicit in the vertical structure of planning and
prices. In the Soviet Union, virtually all investment activity was channeled through the
budget. The primary nominal sources of tax revenue were enterprise profits and resource
rents, turnover taxes charged on the difference between retail prices of consumer goods
and their nominal enterprise cost, and profits of a foreign trade monopoly.
The study will contribute to the field of both economic and environment study as it
will provide empirical basis to support or negate the EKC phenomenon for Asian countries.
The empirical study will result in a quantitative association between income and environment
pollution levels, particularly the relationship of income with three widely monitored air
pollutants: PM-10, SO2 and NO2.
