  • Early interest in selenium by nutritionists concerned its high concentration in certain range plants and the consequent toxicosis in animals that grazed those plants. More recently, the essential nature of selenium has become the center of attention, and this element is now known to be required by laboratory animals, food animals (including fish), and humans. Its role as an integral feature of glutathione peroxidase has been established, and other possible functions are under active investigation.

  • Next, a few words about our strategy. It is well recognized now that one has to go beyond the Einstein-Hilbert action for gravity, both from the experimental viewpoint (eg.,because of Dark Energy) and from the theoretical viewpoint (eg., because of the UV incompleteness of quantized Einstein gravity, and the need of its unification with the Standard Model of Elementary Particles). In our approach, the origin of inflation is purely geometrical, ie. is closely related to space-time and gravity.

  • The IDB’s measures of the impact of the funds and the outstanding is- sues and conclusions from the IDB study are summarized here. Despite the large amount of resources that the IDB and the World Bank have been lending to the funds, their scope is small. Only one fund in the region, Nicaragua, spends as much as 1 percent of the gross domes- tic product (GDP) in its fund; only three countries—Chile, Panama, and Uruguay—spend more than US$15 per year per poor person. And the poor countries on average spend less than US$10 a year.

  • The presence of nontraded goods in our model increases the relative volatility of nominal and real exchange rates relative to the volatility in the model without nontraded goods. An important aspect of the behavior of exchange rates in our model with nontraded goods hinges on the agent's inability to optimally share the risk associated with country-speci¯c shocks to productivity in the nontraded goods sector. In response to a (persistent) positive shock to productivity in this sector, agents wish to consume and invest more.

  • The risk-free yield curve also has fundamental implications for financial stability. It defines the terms of maturity transformation in an economy. Partly because of regulation, the “safe” assets that banks and institutional investors hold on their balance sheets are largely government bonds. The yield on government bonds will influence other risk exposures taken by the financial industry. And it is long-term rates – not short-term rates – that help determine the prices of long-term assets.

  • Written premium is commonly used in the property/casualty insurance industry as a measure of business growth. Therefore, an understanding of the components of written premium is necessary to evaluate growth correctly. Absent this understanding, a user of written premium information may misinterpret the true growth rate of an insurer, especially during periods of rapid change (such as a change in processing systems or transition to a different type of business.) In the simplest case, the policy premium is known and fixed in advance once the policy is sold.

  • These limitations arise because the P2P world is lacking in the areas of semantics, data transformation, and data relationships, yet these are some of the core strengths of the data management community. Queries, views, and integrity constraints can be used to express relationships between existing objects and to define new objects in terms of old ones. Complex queries can be posed across multiple sources, and the results of one query can be materialized and used to answer other queries.

  • This connection can be shown empirically, e.g. for commodities. Gorton and Rouwenhorst show that the yields on commodities futures have a negative correlation with the yields on long-dated bonds and – for long holding periods – with equities. Commodities futures could therefore be employed effectively in order to diversify equity and bond portfolios. 4 On the other hand, according to Yee’s analysis, high correlation coefficients are evident in a comparison of the yields on financial assets with those of metal or energy producers or with REITs.

  • The HIV/AIDS pandemic constitutes a major threat to development in affected countries. The virus is spreading through different populations at varying rates, and prevalence rates among adults range from a fraction of a percent to well over 30 percent. In sub-Saharan Africa and parts of the Carib- bean, the epidemic is clearly established in the general population and is largely spread through heterosexual contact. Whatever the main means of transmis- sion, however, it is almost always the poor and the marginalized that are at greatest risk of exposure.

  • One problemI see time and time again isWho initiates the process— Audit, finance or operations? Hence this article! It may take a coordinated effort. Finance and IA understand controls but maybe not understand all the operating issues. Operations management may not be aware of the emerging field of CM software. Therefore the opportunity for IAs, with a broader focus on improving the business, to recommend specific CMapplications, is like low-hanging fruit, to impact the business in a positive way. Another issue is the time and cost of developing CM software systems.
