How much does household collateral constrain regional risk sharing? construct a new data set of consumption and income data for the largest U.S. metropolitan areas, and we show that the extent of risk-sharing between regions varies substantially over time. In times when US housing collateral is scarce nationally, regional consumption is about twice as sensitive to income shocks.
We set out to determine the levels of Mycobacterium tuberculosis resistance to first- and second-line TB drugs in an urban
population in Zambia. Sputum samples were collected consecutively from all smear-positive, new and previously treated patients,
from four diagnostic centres in Ndola between January and July 2006. Drug susceptibility testing was performed using the
proportion method against four first- and two second-line TB drugs. Results. Among 156 new cases, any resistance was observed
to be 7.7%, monoresistance to isoniazid and rifampicin was 4.5% and 1.3%, respectively.
QuickSteps books are recipe books for computer users. They
answer the question “how do I…?” by providing a quick set
of steps to accomplish the most common tasks in a particular
operating system or application.
The sets of steps are the central focus of the book. QuickSteps
sidebars show how to quickly perform many small functions
or tasks that support the primary functions. Notes, Tips, and
Cautions augment the steps, presented in a separate column so
as not to interrupt the fl ow of the steps.
Twenty-one targets for health for all have been set, which specifically spell out the needs of the
whole European Region and suggest the necessary actions to improve the situation. They will
provide the “benchmarks” against which to measure progress in improving and protecting
health, and in reducing health risks. These 21 targets together constitute an inspirational
framework for developing health policies in the countries of the European Region.

PSI President and CEO Karl Hofmann recalls:
“In just over 10 years, the YouthAIDS platform grew into a brand that drove attention and
resources for HIV prevention and education. PSI, at that time, was a highly successful
implementing organization but traveled below the radar with little brand awareness
except among a small set of development insiders. By creatively marketing the HIV
implementation arm of our organization in a more attractive and media friendly way,
Roberts was able to give YouthAIDS real substance and to raise diversified funds.
This study to develop AQ pollutant datasets for each of the constituent countries of the UK has been commissioned by Defra in order to better inform energy and environmental policy-makers within the Devolved Administrations in their pursuit of objectives set by the Air Quality Strategy for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (AQS for ESWNI). These objectives also contribute to the UK’s targets as a whole in terms of meeting both national and international targets on both local and transboundary air pollution....
Presenting case studies involving Rwanda, Nepal, Australia, Japan, and Mexico, including "real-time" policy and administrative questions, this versatile reference/text provides a wide perspective on national and international environmental problems and policies, featuring discussions with a regional emphasis as well as global significance.
In a book titled Photosynthesis it is easy to forget that light is not simply the energy driving
plant metabolism. Light also is the central environmental factor that affects plant size, shape
and development. In fact, light activation of photomorphogenic signaling pathways sets the
stage for photosynthesis and ensures the maintenance of the apparatus. The effects of
specific wavebands of light exert their influence on plant biology from the molecular level
all the way up to the higher morphological level, and even contribute to the canopy form as
The current study was undertaken in a new manufactured house set up as a research
facility. The plan was to conduct longitudinal measurements of VOC concentrations in the
house along with measurements of key physical parameters including house air change rate,
indoor and outdoor temperature and relative humidity, and wind conditions over a period of
approximately one year. The primary objective was to evaluate changes in the emissions of
formaldehyde and other VOCs in response to time, house air change rate, and the other
I have throughout adhered to the deductive method, that is, I do
not set any exercise before the student, except on points
previously explained. I have always regarded as mischievous the
system of setting exercises beyond the knowledge of the student,
and in which one-half of the words are translated ; these may be
called exercises in writing, rather than exercises on grammar,
and in doing them the student often loses sight of the very points
the grammarian wishes to elucidate .
Luxembourg Fund industry
Over the years, Luxembourg has developed a strong
reputation as a centre of excellence for a large variety of
investment funds. The legal framework of the country offers
a large selection of investment vehicles that may be used to
accommodate the strategies pursued by promoters.
As at 31 December 2011, the size of the Luxembourg Fund
industry was Euro 2.10 trillion (2010: Euro 2.20 trillion).
There were 3,845 funds (2010: 3,667) or 13,294 sub-funds
(2010: 12,937) approved. During the year 2011, 469 new funds
were set up while 291 were closed or liquidated.
“A business angel is an individual investor (qualified as defined by some national regulations) that
invests directly (or through their personal holding) their own money predominantly in seed or start-
up companies with no family relationships. Business angels make their own (final) investment
decisions and are financially independent, i.e. a possible total loss of their business angel
investments will not significantly change the economic situation of their assets.
The remarkable political changes that have
taken place within the European Region in
the last five years have greatly enlarged the
potential for international collaboration. The
First European Conference on Environment
and Health was held in Frankfurt in December
1989, when these dramatic changes
were at their height. Ministers from 29 countries,
and the European Commission, approved
a Charter that set out the principles,
strategy and priorities for achieving an effective
approach to the many areas in which environmental
conditions may significantly affect
Vickers (2001) have shown that if the consumers are required to buy all the goods at one
shop (a practice usually referred to as \pure bundling") the competition can be modeled
in terms of utility oers made by retailers and thus solved relatively easily. The aim of
this study is distinctly dierent: we want to analyze pricing strategies of multiproduct
retailers when, at least some, consumers are able to buy products at dierent shops.
This phenomena seems to be widespread (e.g.
