Therefore, we match SRI funds with conventional funds that are initially
similar and estimate the differences over time in performance and fees between the initially
similar funds. We report results for simple and biased-adjusted estimators obtained using one
and four matches per SRI fund. The one-match procedure is the one that most closely
approximates the matched-pair methodology used in previous studies and it maximizes the
quality of the matches, although at the cost of a small sample size.
We present a natural language generation approach which models, exploits, and manipulates the non-linguistic context in situated communication, using techniques from AI planning. We show how to generate instructions which deliberately guide the hearer to a location that is convenient for the generation of simple referring expressions, and how to generate referring expressions with context-dependent adjectives.
An attempt is made to prepare Linguistics for Situation Semantics. I INTRODUCTION Computational Situation Semantics (yet?). So what is there?

So far you have learnt how to record transactions in the accounting books by means of debit and
credit entries. At the end of each accounting period the figures in each account are examined in
order to summarise the situation they present. This will often, but not always, be a year if you
are calculating profit. It will be at least once a month if you want to see what is happening with
respect to particular accounts. Probably the most obvious reason for this is to find out how
much our customers owe us for goods we have sold to them. In most businesses this...

It would be difficult to describe the impact of viruses — and
their cousins Trojan horses and worms — without resorting
to clichés or sensationalism. But after all the hoopla, the
bottom line is pretty simple: Malicious people write viruses,

two decades, viruses have caused billions of dollars in damage
and lost productivity — and that’s just the impact on businesses.

Thus, after buying into winning funds,
investors unwittingly benefit from momentum returns on winning stocks. To
test this reasoning, Sapp and Tiwari calculate abnormal performance following
money f lows with and without accounting for the momentum factor, and find
that inclusion of the momentum factor in the performance evaluation proce-
dure eliminates outperformance of high f low funds. In addition, they show that

Psychological rather than informational differences may explain much of the
variation in financial capability reported in the FSA (2006) Baseline Survey. This
applies both to differences between individuals and across competence dimensions.
The Baseline Survey indicates that in most capability categories, scores improve with
age and the level of general education. This is consistent with the importance of
attitudes rather than teachable specific knowledge.
