India’s entire production of passenger cars and MUVs rose in the 1960s to 1980s only slowly
to around 40.000 vehicles annually (see figure 1). Low production volumes and high prices
put passenger car ownership quite deliberately out of reach of average middle class
These damaging effects of poverty on child health
can be reduced by well designed policies. Various
options have been reviewed by some of us.
summarises approaches used in different countries to
improve health inputs and services in poor populations,
with emphasis on those related to child health. Several
different—and generally complementary—approaches
are possible. Improvement of knowledge and changing
of behaviour among poor mothers has been achieved in
many settings, in areas as diverse as handwashing for
diarrhoea prevention and nutrition counselling.
Pursuant to the FSF mandate, the questionnaire circulated to member authorities solicited
their individual views on potential unintended consequences of their use of credit ratings in
LRSPs (ie, the appearance of a “seal of approval”). In preparing their responses to this
portion of the questionnaire, member authorities were not expected to conduct any
independent research on the issue, but instead simply to convey their broad impressions and
An effort as far-reaching as that taken on by the Web-based Education Commission could not have
been possible without the invaluable assistance of many talented individuals. Ericka Miller, legislative
assistant to Sen. Bob Kerrey and Glee Smith, legislative director to Rep. Johnny Isakson, provided
continuous advice, support, and thoughtful review throughout our work. Claudia Pharis-
Weiss, chief of staff to Rep. Chaka Fattah; Carmel Martin, senior policy advisor to Sen. Jeff
Bingaman; and Raissa Geary, legislative assistant to Sen. Michael B. Enzi, also made significant contributions.
The proportion of children reported to attend religious services weekly or
monthly shows a different pattern of variation across states. The proportion is
highest – upwards of 85 percent – in Southern states like Mississippi, Louisiana,
Alabama, and South Carolina. The proportion is lowest in the New England states
of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, with less than or just over half of young
people attending services regularly. North Central states like the Dakotas and
Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota, come out relatively high in both family stability
and religious observance.
Blood Meal: Smelly source of nitrogen and phosphorus. Good to use as a mix with cottonseed meal. Expensive,
but itís good to use occasionally. Analysis can range from 12-2-1 to 11-0-0. A good nitrogen source but smelly and
expensive. This natural meal has a low pH and many trace minerals including iron. Use at 20 pounds per 1,000
square feet or 300-400 pounds per acre. A good blend is made by mixing 80 percent cottonseed meal with 20
percent blood meal. If zeolite is blended in with these two products it helps reduce odor and makes them last a...
Although the Apollonian aesthetic and the more general valuation of
reason and control became the dominant tradition, the core ideas of the
Dionysian aesthetics continued as a minor theme in philosophy, art, and
culture. For example, the idea that the world does not fully yield to the
power of reason inspired continued and diverse expression in the philos-
ophy of Nietzsche, Schoepenhauer, Kierkegaard, Sartre, and Camus.
Florida law requires both the landlord and tenant to exercise “good faith” and
honesty in their dealings (Fla.Stat. §§ 83.43(8) and 83.44). An unconscionable
clause in a lease is one that is far beyond what is considered reasonable to an
ordinary person. Naturally, the law prohibits unconscionable lease clauses, and
the court may invalidate the clause or the entire lease agreement. (Fla.Stat. §
Common side effects of the anti-tuberculosis drugs should be described to the
patient. The health care worker should also explain that if the patient experiences
any side effects during the treatment, he or she should immediately report those side
effects to the doctor or nurse.
At every encounter, health care workers can ask patients, “How are you feeling?” or
another general question such as, “Have you had any problems after taking the
drugs?” Health care workers can help patients identify and manage side effects.
The most established nationwide medical registry in Germany is the Perinatal Registry, which collects
maternal health records concerning pregnancy, delivery and perinatal outcome from now more than
1100 hospitals. Over the past 16 years, data collection was transformed from printed questionnaires to
digital records. A special web-based information source of the German Perinatal Registry does not
Training aims to improve employees’ current work skills and
behavior, whereas development aims to increase abilities in
relation to some future position or job. In this chapter, we
examine how the international assignment is a vehicle for both
training and development...
Nevertheless, vitalism continued to find its way into the description of life
processes. For instance, Pasteur writing about his discovery of the importance of
oxygen availability for sugar fermentation by yeast, to be later known as the Pasteur
effect, argued for the exclusive dependency of intact cell structure, a variant of cell
theory postulated by Matthias Schleiden, Theodor Schwann, and their predecessors,
and “ferments”, a set of biocatalysts represented as vital forces.

Clients just specify the type of events that they are interested in, and the content
that the event should at least contain. Clients do not need to maintain an active presence
during the time these interesting events are taking place. Once it registers an interest it should
be able to recover the missed event from any of the broker nodes in the system.
Instruments used to predict future mutual fund returns include the aggregate dividend
yield, the default spread, the term spread, and the yield on the three-month T-bill, variables
identiﬁed by Keim and Stambaugh (1986) and Fama and French (1989) as important in
predicting U.S. equity returns. The dividend yield is the total cash dividends on the value-
weighted CRSP index over the previous 12 months divided by the current level of the
index. The default spread is the yield differential between Moodys BAA-rated and AAA-
The national Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants of Romania
establishes rules of conduct for professional accountants and formulates basic
principles to be followed by professional accountants to achieve common goals.
Romania accountants and entities operating in different sectors of national economy as
freelancers or as employees; basic purpose of the Code, but must always be respected.
National Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants of Romania is divided
into three parts.
The present publication has been prepared for the Third World Climate Conference (Geneva,
September 2009) and the 15th
Conference of the Parties to the United Framework
Convention on Climate Change (COP-15, Copenhagen, December 2009). It provides an
overview of recently completed and ongoing climate research projects undertaken under the
Research Framework Programmes of the European Community.
Federal crop insurance policies are generally either yield-based or revenue-based. For most yield-
based policies, a producer can receive an indemnity if there is a yield loss relative to the farmer’s
“normal” (historical) yield. Revenue-based policies were developed after yield-based policies, in
the mid-1990s, to protect against crop revenue loss resulting from declines in yield, price, or both.
The most recent addition has been products that protect against losses in whole farm revenue
rather than just for an individual crop.
Locked into an eighty-year-old model that prescribes central planning for every aspect of the U.S. health system,
America’s system of delivering health care has lost sight of the important role that consumers play in controlling
health system costs and quality. Real world experiments suggest that people who pay for their own care cut utiliza-
tion by 10% to 30% with no discernable effect on health. Saving even 10% of Wisconsin’s 2002-2003 health care
spending would have saved $260 million.
