From a quality point of view, any grade of paper can be produced by the combination of different non-wood plant fibres (Atchison & McGovern 1987).

  • An estimated 3 to 4 million Californians are predicted to remain uninsured in 2019. Of those, slightly more than 1 million will not be eligible for coverage options under the ACA due to immigration status. Another 800,000 to 1.2 million will be eligible for Medi-Cal or Healthy Families. If and when they seek care, they will have the ability to enroll in coverage. Robust outreach and education can also decrease the number of uninsured who are not aware of coverage opportunities and are therefore less likely to seek care or receive preventive services.

According to Hassan and Katsanis (1994) and Tse et al. (1988), we suggest that the needs of luxury consumer segments cross national borders and that common structures in luxury value perception exist cross-culturally – even if the relative importance of the decision determinants may vary.
