  • The possible impact of nanomaterials on future products and services is enormous. This has led to a tremendous expansion in research and development efforts related to nanoscale materials and devices. It has also raised new questions as to how these products will influence the environment, human health, business, education, and other areas of society. As with any emerging field, a vast amount of disconnected information is emerging, often spread across multiple disciplines.

  • Many people in the field of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) share the belief that a revolution is under way. As MEMS begin to permeate more and more industrial procedures, not only engineering but society as a whole will be strongly affected. MEMS provide a new design technology that could rival, and perhaps even surpass, the societal impact of integrated circuits (ICs). Is this fact or fiction? If it is fact, then several questions must be asked.

  • This analysis represents the scale of potential impacts on the economy and not benefit/cost ratios. Specifically, economic impact studies do not account for some of the social and environmental impacts that are included in benefit/cost studies, though they do account for indirect and induced economic growth that is typically not included in benefit/cost studies. The social and environmental impacts that are not counted within the GDP impact measure include, most notably, personal time savings and emissions impacts.

  • Trachoma is first and foremost a disease of morbidity, reflecting suffering and disability, in contrast with mortality, which reflects the rate of death. The burden of disease is an effective framework for discussing trachoma since it takes into account the effects of morbidity and mortality on the ability to fulfill societal roles. The burden of disease looks beyond the prevalence of a disease; that is, it attempts to measure the impact of disease based on its distribution by sex and age....

  • Most providers treasure their ability to care for patients. The joy derived from the provider–patient relationship remains intact despite additional individuals (e.g., employers, insurers, benefit managers, billing and collection specialists, utilization reviewers, etc.) and regulations interposed by the current evolution of health care. Additionally, providers appear to be accommodating to longer-term alterations that materially affect overall patient– provider relationships. One feature of the changing relationship is increasing patient autonomy.

  • The analysis shows that public transportation investment can have significant impacts on the economy, and thus represent an important public policy consideration. However, economic impacts should not be equated with the value of total societal benefits associated with public transportation investment. Care should also be taken to recognize the short-term effect of public transportation spending as well as the longer-term benefits of sustained transportation investment on travel times, costs and economic productivity.
