Since the 1945 publication of Vannevar Bush’s Science—The Endless
Frontier, the federal government has played the predominant role
in supporting research and development (R&D) and in establishing
public policies that affect science and technology (S&T) in the United
States. That role remains vitally important today. Almost every major
policy issue is influenced by scientific and technological information and
expertise. There remains a clear and ongoing mandate for a cohesive set
of federal policy and programs that both sustain R&D and promote the
application of new knowledge....

With terrorism still prominent on the U.S. agenda, whether the country’s prevention efforts match the threat the United States faces continues to be central in policy debate. One element of this debate is questioning whether the United States should create a dedicated domestic intelligence agency. Case studies of five other
The 2010 Rwanda Demographic and Health Survey (2010 RDHS) was carried out by the National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda (NISR) and the Ministry of Health (MoH). ICF Macro provided technical assistance to the project through the MEASURE Demographic and Health Surveys program (MEASURE DHS).
The study aims to clarify the theoretical and practical foundations of the development and adoption of legal normative documents by State administrative agencies in the People’s Democratic Republic of Laos, through which indicates results, limitations and causes of the development of legal normative documents by State administrative agencies in Laos in order to propose solutions to enhance the quality of the development and adoption of legal normative documents by these agencies.
TCXDVN 264: 2002 is compiled on the basis of the Ordinance on PWD:
Article 26.- “The investment for new construction or reconstruction of dwelling houses, of public amenities and for design, manufacture of domestic furnitures, of transport and communication means ... must take into account the needs for convenient use by PWD, firstly of mobility and sight PWD, and at the same time have to comply with construction codes, standards issued by competent state agencies”.
Millions of adults in the U.S. report that they speak limited English, and English language ability appears linked to multiple dimensions of adult life, such as civic participation and workforce participation and mobility.

In the United States industry is the greatest source of pollution, accounting for more than half the volume of all water pollution and for the most deadly pollutants. Some 370,000 manufacturing facilities use huge quantities of freshwater to carry away wastes of many kinds. The waste-bearing water, or effluent, is discharged into streams, lakes, or oceans, which in turn disperse the polluting substances. In its National Water Quality Inventory, reported to Congress in 1996, the U.S.
Subsequently, the 1996 Nepal Family Health Survey, the 2001 Nepal Demographic and Health
Survey and the 2006 Nepal Demographic and Health surveys were conducted. This trend report
discusses key findings from these three DHS surveys in Nepal. All three Nepal DHS surveys sampled
nationally representative populations, were conducted by the same organization (New ERA Ltd.), and
managed by the same core group of survey personnel.
In addition to substantive reforms of the authorities and practices of regulation and
supervision, the proposals contained in this report entail a significant restructuring of our
regulatory system. We propose the creation of a Financial Services Oversight Council,
chaired by Treasury and including the heads of the principal federal financial regulators
as members. We also propose the creation of two new agencies.
authorize the regulation of security measures that are not associated with
the immediate food-processing environment, such as requiring fences,
alarms, and outside lighting. Neither agency believes that it has the authority
to regulate all aspects of security at food-processing facilities.
Both FDA and USDA issued voluntary security guidelines to help food
processors identify measures to prevent or mitigate the risk of deliberate
contamination. Because these guidelines are voluntary, neither agency
enforces, monitors, or documents their implementation.
In response to such changes we need a multifaceted, multi-agency
approach based on strengthening individuals, families and
communities, while at the same time improving the infrastructure and
access to services. Midwives and midwifery services have a particular
part to play in this. We could go a long way to achieving improvements
in health and social outcomes by giving more people, particularly
women and children, better life chances8.
In morocco access to antenatal services is limited and many HIV-
positive pregnant women are not identified for lack of HIV testing,
especially in rural areas. The fear of stigma and discrimination is a
major barrier for women to get tested, both at home and in health
care settings. Breast-feeding is contraindicated by the Ministry of
Health (an outdated recommendation), but formula is provided in
only three cities and only 56 percent of the rural population has
access to safe drinking water.
Floods are part of nature. It is not technically feasible nor economically affordable to prevent all properties from
flooding. Therefore a risk-based approach is taken to achieve the best results possible using the budget and
resources available. As almost all of the Environment Agency’s funding has historically come from the taxpayer,
we have a responsibility to ensure we achieve as much benefit as possible from the funds provided.
Clearly there is not enough training. National and local governments
should start paying more attention to training needs and budgets, be-
cause the bilateral and the multilateral agencies cannot keep supporting
training at the current rate. National budgets have to start allocating
resources for training.
There are some management issues. A demand-driven approach may
reduce funding for poorer communities, because they are often the ones
least able to develop their own projects.
The creation of quick jobs, as opposed to training, often results in the
creation of too many bricklayers, often of not very good caliber. So
that when the fund goes, people are no more able to get a good job
Sometimes there is a contradiction between building quality projects
and using local labor, because when asked, municipalities often want
quality projects. And yet bilateral and multilateral agencies say they want
local labor to be employed.
Finally, there are some environmental issues.
