On August 1, 1990, Iraqi troops rolled into Kuwait. During the two
weeks prior to the invasion, members of the U.S. intelligence community
had monitored the deployment of Iraqi forces, and several of
them had concluded that Saddam Hussein intended to invade
Kuwait. The intelligence evaluators forwarded their analyses to the
top members of George H. W. Bush’s administration, who refused to
validate the conclusions until just a few hours before the start of the
This book is, first and foremost, a treatise in applied ethics. Most ethics texts explain
the duties of professionals that are outlined in the profession’s ethical code. This book
is designed to assist the mental health professional in developing the ability to reason
ethically, a skill that is an extraordinarily important component of professionalism in
any field, but one that is grossly underdeveloped in many professionals. The greatest
challenges to ethical professional practice are the novel situations that arise involving
conflicts between two ethical principles.
Behavioral Finance, a study of investor market behavior that derives from psychological principles of decision making, to explain why people buy or sell the stocks they do. The linkage of behavioral cognitive psychology, which studies human decision making, and financial market economics. Behavioral Finance focuses upon how investors interpret and act on information to make informed investment decisions. Investors do not always behave in a rational, predictable and an unbiased manner indicated by the quantitative models.
Depreciation, depletion, and amortization are cost allocation processes. We allocate the cost of the asset to expense over its useful life in some rational and systematic manner. The unused portion of the asset’s cost appears on the balance sheet. We allocate a portion of the cost to expense on the income statement each accounting period.
It may also be useful to categorise water quality problems as either "impact issues" or
"user-requirement issues". Impact issues are those derived from human activities that
negatively affect water quality or that result in environmental degradation. User-
requirement issues are those which derive from an inadequate matching of user-
specified water quality requirements (demand) and the actual quality of the available
Malaria and other vector-borne diseases are major contrib-
utors to the total global burden of disease and a significant
impediment to socioeconomic development in resource-
poor countries. Although vector control has a proven record
of saving lives by preventing, reducing or eliminating
transmission, its benefits are far from being fully realized.
The Global Strategic Framework for Integrated Vector
Management (IVM) provides a basis for strengthening
vector control in a manner that is compatible with national
Consistent with real-life credit-card and subprime mortgage
contracts but (we argue) inconsistent with natural specifications of rational time-consistent
theories, in the competitive equilibrium of our model firms offer seemingly cheap credit to be
repaid quickly, but introduce large penalties for falling behind this front-loaded repayment schedule.
The contracts are designed so that borrowers who underestimate their taste for immediate
gratification both pay the penalties and repay in an ex ante suboptimal back-loaded manner
more often than they predict or prefer.
The capacity of dendritic cells to initiate T cell responses is
related to their ability to redistribute MHC class II mole-cules from the intracellular MHC class II compartments to
the cell surface. This redistribution occurs during dendritic
cell development as they are converted from an antigen
capturing, immature dendritic cell into an MHC class II-peptide presenting mature dendritic cell. During this matu-ration, antigen uptake and processing are down-regulated
and peptide-loaded class II complexes become expressed in
a stable manner on the cell surface. ...
