John Archibald Wheeler was born on July 9, 1911, in Jacksonville, Florida, and
passed away on April 13, 2008, in Hightstown, New Jersey; his influence on gravitational
physics and science in general will remain forever. Among his many and
important contributions to physics, he was one of the fathers of the renaissance of
An overwhelming majority of firms reported paying more for construction
materials in 2012 than they did the previous year, a trend that firms predict will continue
into 2013. Eighty-eight percent of firms reported paying more for construction materials
in 2012 compared to the previous year, while 90 percent report they expect materials
prices to again increase in 2013.
The Thematic Strategy was published in late 2005 and constitutes an important step
in a series of initiatives that have contributed to the development of Europe’s policy
on the urban environment. Given the diversity of urban areas and existing national,
regional and local circumstances the Strategy does not dictate the solutions that
cities should adopt as it would be impossible to propose a "one size fits all"
While overall demand for new construction equipment is likely to remain relatively
modest in 2013, slightly more firms plan to lease equipment this year than purchase it,
reflecting continued caution among hard-hit firms. Specifically, 64 percent of firms plan
to purchase some kind of construction equipment this year while 77 percent of firms
plan to lease new equipment in 2013. Among firms planning to purchase equipment,
more than two-thirds report plans to purchase $250,000 or less worth of equipment.
In general, planning a special event or mass gathering should begin well in advance of the
event. One of the first steps in planning an event is to bring together those who are hosting
the event with those who are responsible for the public safety within the community. A
multidisciplinary planning team or committee should be composed of the promoter or
sponsor and any agency that holds a functional stake in the event (e.g., emergency
management, law enforcement, fire and rescue, public works/utilities, public health, etc.).
The ACS SYMPOSIUM SERIES was founded in 1974 to provide
a medium for publishing symposia quickly in book form. The
format of the SERIES parallels that of its predecessor, ADVANCES
IN CHEMISTRY SERIES, except that in order to save time the
papers are not typeset but are reproduced as they are sub-
mitted by the authors in camera-ready form. As a further
means of saving time, the papers are not edited or reviewed
except by the symposium chairman, who becomes editor of
In this article we track four such trends over time. First, and following ﬁlmscholars (eg,
Bordwell 2006; Bordwell and Thompson 2004; Salt 2006; 2009), we measure the average shot
lengths of ﬁlms and ﬁnd that the changes seen in our ﬁlmsample are consistent with what
they have reported. Second, we review and add to the data of Cutting et al (2011b) on the
increase in the amount of motion and movement in ﬁlms. Third, we measure the motion
andmovement within shots of different lengths and ﬁnd a reliable change in pattern. And
ﬁnally, we measure the luminance of each ﬁlm.
Exploring the Human Capital Contribution to Productivity, Profitability, and the Market Evaluation of the Firm Either of these effects would imply upward bias in estimates of 1
ϕ relative to the
effect of interest. To the extent that they are thought to be important, the results presented
in Table 1.4, 1.5, and 1.6 should be seen as upper bounds on the effect of Tiebout choice on
parental effectiveness sorting.
Apart from banking regulation, more general legislative aspects, both in relation to micro-lenders
and micro-borrowers, have a bearing on the development of microfinance in a given country. This
is the case with tax laws, legal provisions in relation to self-entrepreneurship, interest rate ceilings,
usury rates, etc. The different frameworks are key determinants and have led to a broad variety of
institutional forms and business models for microfinance lending in Europe.
The research recommends that
marketers think about dollars instead of percentages. If restaurants hold onto their mark-
ups, but experience a 50% drop in volume, they are worse off than if they were to drop
prices and keep a strong volume. The vast majority of restaurants have gotten away
from a straight three-time markup across an entire list. Additionally, restaurants need to
recognize the fact that certain staples, such as Opus One or Dom Perignon, act as
barometers diners generally know how much the wine costs, and look to these
selections as benchmarks on list pricing.
The aim of this book of essays is to advance contemporary work in creating
stronger links between the history and philosophy of mathematics. It has
become clear through several conferences and publications that the present situation
at the beginning of the twenty-first century is congenial to this kind of
historico-philosophical enterprise. The editors have brought together an important
international group of scholars whose contributions focus on the history and
philosophy of modern mathematics, roughly from 1800 to 1970....
“Creating value through values” is the credo of today’s management accountant. It means that management
accountants should maintain an unwavering commitment to ethical values while using their
knowledge and skills to influence decisions that create value for organizational stakeholders. These
skills include managing risks and implementing strategy through planning, budgeting and forecasting,
and decision support. Management accountants are strategic business partners who understand the
financial and operational sides of the business.
Every deliverable has a cost. Where possible the cost for each deliverable and milestone should add up to form
the project budget.
If the project budget is a critical indicator of progress – for example, in the case of a procurement project – you
must specify how the work will be done within budget and how work will be reported: for example, percentage
complete, actual versus projected outlays and so on.
Your plan should also list the resources needed to achieve each deliverable.
The scripts provided as part of this paper are sample code which can be used to base your own scripts on.
These scripts have been tested on an Oracle Enterprise Linux - 2 node cluster. It is expected that they
should work on all Oracle Clusterware supported platforms. Oracle Support cannot provide any direct
support for these scripts. You should thoroughly test the scripts – in particular the check action of each
script to ensure compatibility with your operating system.
The pelvic floor consists of muscles and connective tissue. In the past, the components’
relative contribution to the structural support of the pelvic floor and its functions has been a
subject of controversy (Corton 2009). With increasing age women can develop vaginal and
pelvic organ prolapse as well as symptoms such as stress urinary incontinence, voiding
dysfunction, urgency and frequency and nocturia, and may also develop fecal incontinence,
obstructive defecation and pelvic pain (Petros 2010).
China has a dual-track interest-rate system: bank deposit and lending rates are regulated while
money and bond rates are market-determined. The central bank also imposes an indicative target,
which may not be binding at all times, for total credit in the banking system. We develop and cali-
brate a theoretical model to illustrate the conduct of monetary policy within the framework of dual-
track interest rates and a juxtaposition of price- and quantity-based policy instruments.
Breaking waves on the sea cause the ejection of many tiny droplets of seawater into the atmosphere.
These droplets dry by evaporation leaving sea salt particles suspended in the air. Particles are also directly
emitted by the bursting of air bubbles on sea surface Such particles are generally in the size range between
1 to 20µm. . Whilst these particles are, in the main, rather coarse in size, a minor part of their mass is
in particles small enough to have an appreciable atmospheric lifetime, which has been estimated as three
Some organizations are deliberately using mobile money
to enhance their traditional offerings. For example, during a
recent drought in Niger, a set of randomly selected house-
holds received cash transfers via mobile money (Aker et al.
2011). In comparison with physical cash, this trial found
lower variable costs for senders, as well as lower costs for
recipients. Over the course of the crisis, recipient households
also enjoyed better diets and depleted fewer assets.
Insurance, credit, and savings services are now being
developed atop mature mobile money systems.
Experts were located in two ways. First, nearly a thousand were identified in an extensive canvassing of
scholarly, government, and business documents from the period 1990-1995 to see who had ventured
predictions about the future impact of the Internet. Several hundred of them participated in the first two
surveys conducted by Pew Internet and Elon University, and they were recontacted for this survey.
