carriers have different shapes and sizes, and their biogenesis, modality of transport,
and delivery to the final destination are regulated by a multitude of very complex
molecular machineries, which include cytoskeletal elements, signaling complexes, and
lipid modifying enzymes to name a few. A concept that has clearly emerged in the last
decade is that each membrane pathway does not represent a close system, but is fully
integrated with all the other trafficking pathways.
The internet has provided the global audience instant information, broad connections to billions and a revolutionary form of
communication. However, for all of this seemingly effortless access to consumers, the internet has traditionally been a complex
problem for marketers. Numerous organizations either do not have or maintain an appropriate interactive / internet marketing plan.
More still simply include an isolated online component, typically a banner advertising campaign, in an overall marketing plan.
Le Trong Trai et al. (2001) argued that with an abundance of heavily degraded
land available for rehabilitation, forest management and other land uses, there is
considerable potential for cash earning activities in the buffer zone (for example
through economic crop plantations). This activity would also reduce the overall
pressure on the forest resources in the nature reserve. They also suggested that
current arrangements for forest development and management in the bare lands
are costly, create social tensions and seem to be unsustainable in the long run.
Our list of providers was determined from the HHSC’s list of providers who billed the
WHP in state fiscal year 2011. In each county, Planned Parenthood centers saw the largest
number of WHP patients, based on statistics for state fiscal year 2011, as shown in Table 4.
Planned Parenthood affiliates often operate multiple clinics or sites, particularly in the larger
urban areas. In this report, we use the term “affiliate” to refer to a Planned Parenthood
organization, which may have multiple clinics or sites. The WHP provider list is based on the
If some forms of independent production have worked closely
in unison with Hollywood, others have operated in areas in which
Hollywood has chosen not to tread, sometimes teaching valuable lessons
to the dominant institution. Necessity has often driven independent
operators to be the pioneers of American cinema, exploring new
avenues in their search for territories not already colonized by the
major studios. The early independents took cinema to parts of rural
America, including the gold camps of Alaska, that were not served by
the big companies.
Buses and other fleet vehicles are the perfect avenue to introduce fuel cell power plants into the marketplace. Because the vehicles return to a central station each night, they can fill up with hydrogen without the need for an extended hydrogen infrastructure.
We are pleased with how our fuel cell power system has performed during revenue service in buses in California, Connecticut, and Belgium. Our customers have been impressed with the performance and fuel efficiency of the power plants, and passengers enjoy the comfortable, quiet, and odor-free ride of the bus.
Exchange involves the transfer of ownership -- goods for money or goods for goods. Most
exchange transactions are concluded with the payment of money, although some barter exchange
is practiced among countries having centrally controlled trading agencies.
Many people and agencies are engaged in the exchange of agricultural products. The courts
stand ready to enforce rules of fair dealing. Commercial banks provide credit for the shipment of
products and to finance processing and storage. The futures market is available to help in
spreading the market price risk.
Some programs train CHWs to provide care and support for people living with HIV/AIDS. Simple checklists
and guidelines help CHWs identify sexually transmitted infections, malnutrition, complications during pregnancy,
and early childhood illnesses, allowing them to counsel and refer the client to the proper facilities if necessary.
Pathfinder CHWs, with a few exceptions, work entirely as volunteers. The majority of them are women, selected
because of their respect in the community and their leadership abilities.
A growing body of literature argues that the availability
and mix of physician specialties in areas is important for
health outcomes. Areas with fewer specialists but higher
generalists per capita were found to have better health
outcomes or quality of care [21,22]. Goodman  found
that greater physician supply is associated with both
higher area income and lower mortality rates, and argued
that regional variations in health outcomes and physician
supply will exist as long as there are differences across
communities in economic status.
Epidemiological studies indicate that NO2 may increase respiratory illness in older
children (5–15 years). These findings are of concern because of the potential long-term
effects. Studies indicate that repeated respiratory illness in older children (independent
of NO2) is associated with increased lung damage in later life. Thus, any increases in
such illnesses associated with NO2 could have subsequent, as well as immediate,
consequences (WHO, 2000).
Modern communication tools such as the Internet provide a relatively inexpensive, accessible,
easy-entry means of sharing ideas, information, and pictures around the world. In a political and
human rights context, in closed societies when the more established, formal news media is denied
access to or does not report on specified news events, the Internet has become an alternative
source of media, and sometimes a means to organize politically.
The real MR images were used for performance evaluation. They were acquired from ten
patients with normal physiology. One example is shown in Fig. 2(a)-(e) with the same
parameter values in Table 1. Band 1 is the PD-weighted spectral image acquired by the
pulse sequence TR/TE = 2500ms/25ms. Bands 2, 3 and 4 are T2-weighted spectral images
were acquired by the pulse sequences TR/TE = 2500ms/50ms, TR/TE = 2500ms/75ms and
TR/TE =2500ms/100ms respectively. Band 5 is the T1-weighted spectral image acquired by
the pulse sequence TR/TE = 500ms/11.9ms.
Agency securities. Agency securities are the obligations of federal gov-
ernment agencies or government-sponsored enterprises. Generally, agency
debt offers a slight yield premium over T-bills. Turn back to Chapter 6 for
more on agency securities.
Commercial paper. Commercial paper, or CP, is issued by corporations
(including banks) to ﬁnance short-term cash needs. While smaller corpo-
rations usually depend on bank loans for this type of funding, larger cor-
porations with good credit ratings can access the CP market and often do
Biodiversity forms patterns not just across space, but also across time. New species
emerge, old ones become extinct; rates of diversification speed up and slow down.
These long-term patterns in evolution get their start in the generation-to-
generation processes of natural selection, genetic drift, and reproductive isolation.
When a lineage of organisms evolves over a few million years, these processes
can potentially produce a wide range of patterns (see ). Natural selec-
tion may produce a significant change in a trait such as body size, for example.
Microsoft has started later but with huge investments in the creation of new
data centres. In the fall of 2008, the leading software company has introduced a
cloud platform called Windows Azure, currently available only in a preview ver-
sion. Azure is able to provide a number of new technologies: a Windows-based en-
vironment in the cloud to store data in Microsoft data centres and to run applica-
tions; an infrastructure for both on-premises and cloud applications (through .
An urban transport system must rather be judged on outputs --- on results. The best urban transport system
is the one that serves its people best, the one that requires its people to spend the least time traveling around
the area. In that regard, no megacity can compete with Los Angeles.
Los Angeles is blessed with a well coordinated and effective transportation system, at least if the criteria is
performance. Its principal elements are the famous freeways, but just as importantly, the wide arterial streets
that provide a network throughout the area.
The latest Cyber Navi has a variety of advanced functions to support comfortable driving. The AR
HUD View function displays information in the AR HUD unit, such as information about the route and
the distance to the vehicle ahead, in a way that is easy to understand. The Parking Watcher function
downloads information in real-time to show the latest information about car park congestion in the
navigation screen. There is also a function that detects and displays speed limit signs, notifying the
driver with a sound effect when a sign is detected.
Both temporary and permanent hair reduction can be achieved safely and effectively with the
LightSheer Diode Laser.
By matching pulse duration and fluence to specific hair color, skin color and type, the laser can
effectively treat a broad range of patients with excellent results. Eighty-nine percent of patients
studied experienced permanent hair reduction, and 100% had short-term hair loss. These results
were achieved with few, if any, adverse side effects.
There has been extensive past work on node localization as well
as event tracking in sensor networks (see  for a survey). These
systems differ in the way they obtain range measurements, propa-
gate location estimates transitively, utilize positive versus negative
information, and represent potential node locations.
Range measurements can be obtained through simple connectiv-
ity, signal strength, time of arrival, time difference of arrival or an-
gle of arrival measurements. Recent work has examined heuristics
for performing range measurements via hop counts .
Domestic demand continues to be held back by the legacy of the crisis of
2008-09 as households, banks and sovereigns are simultaneously reducing
their leverage. At the same time, resources in countries that ran large current-
account deficits before the crisis need to be reallocated from the production
of goods and services for domestic consumption towards tradables. As this
adjustment is progressing, an improvement of deficit countries' economic
performance is expected to lead to some growth convergence towards the end
of the forecast horizon. ...
