  • This paper examines how the effort choices of workers within the same firm interact with each other. In contrast to the existing literature, we show that workers can affect the productivity of their co-workers based on income maximization considerations, rather than relying on behavioral considerations such as peer pressure, social norms, and shame. Theoretically, we show that a worker’s effort has a positive effect on the effort of co-workers if they are complements in production, and a negative effect if they are substitutes.

  • Unprecedented growth in the telecommunications industry has driven wide-spread deployment of optical fiber over the past few years. As a result, many service providers are finding that their existing fiber frames and troughs are overflowing with large masses of optical fiber patch cords. In addition, the rapid deployment of SONET/SDH, fiber in the loop and video initiatives has created the demand for increased termination density at the fiber distributing frame.

  • The Academy Awards have been broadcast on television since 1953, when the show was sponsored by RCA Victor and televised by NBC.

  • During the interval in which time series overlap, the British and French negative length was growing at roughly the same rates as the US one, until 1914. That war year constitutes a great discontinuity, and from then on European growth rates are different and far lower than US ones. At the same time, the average film length increased considerably, from eighty feet in 1897 to seven hundred feet in 1910 to three thousand feet in 1920. As a result, the total released length, which is the best indicator of production, increases more rapidly than the number released, in...

  • The dominant nature of this long-short or spread trading activity explains why hedge funds do so well in market downturns (i.e. it is not directional). But it also explains why leverage needs to be relatively high: investing in a strong stock market generates strong returns, while investing in a low-risk spread in a long-short strategy does not. So the trade has to be levered up a number of times in order for the spread trades to generate competitive returns (while keeping the benefit of avoiding directional risk in the market).

  • Despite the large social benefits from PAYD, there are currently several barriers to its widespread adoption, including the cost to monitor miles traveled and some state insur- ance regulations. In order to facilitate the spread of PAYD, we propose a three-part strat- egy. First, states should pass legislation permitting mileage-based insurance premiums. Second, the federal government should increase the funding available to PAYD pilot pro- grams by $15 million over five years.

  • Nitrogen, found in commercial fertilizers and manure, is applied in many different chemical forms. Bacteria can convert all of them to nitrate, a form of nitrogen that can be taken up by plant roots. Nitrate is very soluble in water and is easily carried from farm fields into streams and rivers. Perforated pipes called tiles, which farmers bury under their fields to manage water drainage in an effort to maximize crop production, make the situation worse.

  • Advection is the transport of dissolved solute mass present in groundwater due to the bulk flow (movement) of that groundwater. Advection alone (with no dispersion or reactive processes occurring) would cause a non-reactive solute to advect (move) at the mean groundwater pore velocity. All solutes undergo advection, however, reactive solutes are subject to influences by other processes detailed below. Molecular diffusion is the movement of solute ions in the direction of the con- centration gradient from high towards low concentrations. It effects all solutes.

  • The amount to deduct is the amount of the expense which was used up during this period. This may not be the amount actually paid. For example, if you owe money at the end of the account – your trade creditors – it may be that this should be included in this account rather than later when it is paid. (Make sure you do not deduct any payments made in this account which you included as trade creditors in your last accounts.) But if you make a payment which is used up over two periods or more you should spread it in your accounts. For example, if...

  • Governments in developing countries need to spend more money on essential public services if they are to have a serious impact on poverty. Take the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a set of targets for halving extreme poverty, providing universal primary education, halting the spread of HIV and AIDS and much more by 2015. Ambitious, yes, but achievable. To meet many of the MDGs, governments will need to hire more public sector employees, from teachers and doctors to agricultural extension workers.
