As Brown states, anthropometric grids were commonly used in 19th Century ethnographic photography to make objective studies of non-western bodies: highlighting physical differences which had grown to signify a lack of civilization to the western eye. Grids were particularly useful in this way as they gave photographic work the 'aesthetic of science - dispassionate, orderly, coherent' (Solnit, 2003, p195) which helped boost the truth-value of the photograph, and therefore helped inscribe racial.
There are signifi cant development plans for the Northern Precinct in coming years, however no
development approvals have been granted, so in the short term an undersupply in the marketplace
is anticipated. Pent-up demand for product within this precinct will also ensure an oversupply is
not apparent when these new developments, for example Barangaroo and Gold Fields House, are
released to the market.
What does a dwindling supply level really mean to the consumer? In all likelihood a lack of supply
will translate into further upward pressures on prices for apartments.
The paradox of phallocentrism in aIl its manifestations is that it depends on the
image of the castrated woman to give order and meaning to its world. An idea of
woman stands as lynch pin to the system: it is her lack that produces the phallus as
a symbolic presence, it is her desire to make good the lack that the phallus signifies.
Recent writing in Screen about psychoanalysis and the cinema has not sufficiently
brought out the importance of the representation of the female form in a symbolic
order in which, in the last resort, it speaks castration...
Once this has been achieved,
her meaning in the process is at an end, it does not last into the world of law and
language except as a memory which oscillates between memory of maternal
plenitude and memory of lack. Both are posited on nature (or on anatomy in Freud's
famous phrase). Woman's desire is subjected to her image as bearer of the bleeding
wound, she can exist only in relation to castration and cannot transcend it. She turns
her child into the signifier of her own desire to possess a penis (the condition, she
imagines, of entry into...
The main reason for this lack of statistical significance is the large
standard deviation of daily returns, about 1 percent, which swamps in magnitude the
difference in returns. We also investigate whether the identified difference in returns
between new moon and full moon windows is persistent. As a measure of persistence,
we calculate the percentage of years in which mean new moon daily returns are higher
than mean full moon returns. For the DJIA, this number is 56.3 percent, which is
moderately above the 50 percent that would be expected by chance.
