  • Cardiovascular disease, including coronary heart disease, strokes and diseases of other arteries, is a major cause of early death and disability. For many years the major markers of disease risk have been well recognised: these include high blood cholesterol levels and smoking. But it has also been recognised that these markers do not account for all cardiovascular risk. Furthermore, treatments that are highly effective in altering these markers, for instance the ‘statin’ drugs used to lower cholesterol, do not remove risk entirely: typically they reduce it by about 30% or less.

Some years ago, it was strongly suggested that the practitioners asked implant patients to sign a consent form to release the dentist from all responsibility in case of failure. Then, one day a patient in France sued his dentist for having prepared his teeth for a fixed partial denture without suggesting the implant alternative. The patient won the case. Soon it might be necessary to ask patients to sign a form indicating that they have refused implant treatment.

  • Brewer, Minton, and Moser (2000), we evaluate an equation relating the determinants of C&I lending and the impact of derivatives on C&I lending activity. The major finding in this study is that the interest-rate derivatives allow commercial banks to lessen their systematic exposure to changes in interest rates, which enables banks to increase their lending activities without increasing the total risk level faced by the banks. This consequently increases the banks’ abilities to provide more intermediation services.

  • Climate change is happening now. Climate-induced disasters are occurring in the Asia Pacific region, where a distinctly increasing trend has been observed in recent decades. This shows that the region is the most disaster prone, compared with other parts of the world. Studies on the causes of disaster in many affected regions suggest that in a typical disaster, cities with high population density see increases in mortality and number of people affected. Increased economic losses within the region are also inevitable.

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.
