  • Over the last 20 years the development and application of genetics has revolutionized forensic science. In 1984, the analysis of polymorphic regions of DNA produced what was termed ‘a DNA fingerprint’ [1]. The following year, at the request of the United Kingdom Home Office, DNA profiling was successfully applied to a real case, when it was used to resolve an immigration dispute [2]. Following on from this, in 1986, DNA evidence was used for the first time in a criminal case and identified Colin Pitchfork as the killer of two school girls in Leicestershire, UK.

  • One of the key characteristics of agriculture is the inherent production risks facing producers from adverse weather, pests, and diseases. These risks have been used to justify government intervention in the form of disaster assistance payments, emergency loans, livestock feed assistance programs, crop insurance, and other subsidized assistance schemes. Yet, while government intervention to provide assistance has been widely supported in the United States, the form of assistance has been much debated.

  • Dewey holds that the capacity for aesthetic experiences of art arises out of basic mechanisms, present even in animals, that are employed throughout everyday life. We are in a continual process, Dewey notes, of falling out of sync with our environments—whenever we are hungry, cold, tired, afraid, or in pain—and regaining our sense of union and harmony. We continually detect signs of dissatisfaction or discomfort within ourselves and attempt to alleviate that discomfort.

  • On the other hand, in order to know the level of economic freedom of each country, the annual study by the Heritage Foundation and Wall Street Journal, Index of Economic Freedom 2008, is used. In this edition the study continues implementing the changes of the previous edition, but also added some more information about the tax load for the people.

  • A second process was the expansion of soybeans and other crops in the cerrado (savannah) region of Brazil by using varieties, soil amendments and conservation tillage developed through long-standing public investment in research and development that allowed cultivation of acid soils that were previously considered unsuitable for agriculture. This was a major technological success that dramatically increased production and exports.

  • This paper analyzes junk bond defaults during 1980 to 1991 to determine which factors affect the length of time spent in default. Bondholder holdouts are not a significant problem, as firms with proportionately more bonds have shorter default spells. In contrast, bank debt is associated with slower restructurings. Bargaining problems arising from contingent liabilities, lawsuits, and size delay the process, although multiple bond classes do not. Neither information problems nor firm value appear to matter. HLTs do not resolve their defaults at a significantly faster pace.

  • To the lay person, printing an electro mechanical device on the same machine, at the same time, may not sound that revolutionary. However, when future 3D printers are able to manufacture very sophisticated devices that contain fully formed electronic circuitry, batteries, sensors inside some sort of mechanical “body,” we will witness the production of fully formed robots that will not require further assembly. The ability of a 3D printer to print all of a robot’s vital parts in one fell swoop, directly from raw materials, would not only save time and effort on assembly.

  • A simple model of earnings, operating cash flows, and accruals developed in this section generates an explanation for the negative serial correlation in operating cash flow changes. Increases (decreases) in sales generate contemporaneous outlays (inflows) for working capital increases (decreases) that are followed in the next period by cash inflows (outflows). The result is negative serial correlation in cash flow changes. Accruals exclude the contemporaneous one-time outflows for working capital from the current period's earnings and incorporate forecasts of permanent future cash inflows.

  • Second, information should be thought of as better if it reduces the uncertainty surrounding some future cost or benefit. For instance, future liabilities are inherently uncertain. Information that can narrow the variance on estimates of those uncertain liabilities should be considered better information. Reduced variance is particularly valuable when decision-makers are risk-averse, since a reduction in variance alone can lead to different decisions when there is risk aversion.

  • Primarily, an investment property is one purchased strictly for the purpose of generating income. It’s neither your current primary residence nor a vacation home used only by your family. An investment property is usually purchased with the intention of either renting it out or renovating it to resell at a profit. There are also some variations on that theme. For instance, when a family relocates or decides to downsize, a primary residence can become an investment property if it doesn’t need to be sold.

  • It appears that the 1998 totals are somewhat lower due to the benign credit cycle in the U.S. for the past five years (1993-1997), when default rates on public high yield bonds averaged less than 2% each year (Exhibit 2, Altman & Kishore, 1998). The supply of public, domestic defaulted bonds was about $10 billion as of mid-1998 and our best estimate of distressed public debt is about $13 billion. At the same time, we have noticed an increase in distressed securities in 1998. The resulting total of defaulted and distressed, public bonds and private debt as of end of August 1998 is...

  • If a company’sWeb site is used to collect, compile, or process customer data, that company has an added point of vulnerability. The increased vulnerability in this situation arises from the potential of a hacker breaking into the Web site and stealing data such as names, address, account information, or credit card numbers. In addition, if the Web site is integrated with back-end applications or connected to other systems in the enterprise, there is a greater possibility that hackers and information thieves can access more sensitive information that otherwise may be kept private.

  • However, their empirical observations can also be interpreted at hinting at a much more fundamental problem with the causality between savings and investment proclaimed by textbook theory. This thought is not new. The causation between saving and investment has long been disputed and not yet been solved. 4 Based on the works of Keynes and Schumpeter, some economists argue that the causation does not run from saving to investment, but rather from investment to saving.

  • The negative coefficient of risk on leverage, both in market and book values, is in line with standard corporate finance arguments, but also consistent with the regulatory view. In its pure form, in which regulation constitutes the overriding departure from the Modigliani and Miller irrelevance proposition, a regulator could force riskier banks to hold more book equity. In that regard, omitting risk from the standard leverage regression (1) would result in spurious significance of the remaining variables. The results in Table VII show this is not the case.

  • There is a powerful, positive influence that comes from the team being protected from changing goals during the Sprint. First, the team gets to work knowing with absolute certainty that its commitments will not change, which only reinforces the team’s focus on ensuring completion. Second, it disciplines the Product Owner into really thinking through the items he or she prioritizes on the Product Backlog. Knowing that the commitment is for the duration of the Sprint makes the Product Owner much more diligent in thinking through what to ask for at the beginning. ...

  • The contents of each cell in Table 12 are simply (and only) a reflection of the contents of the equivalent cell in Table 10. Thus, for example, (re)training of former farm workers is a direct response to the reduction in agricultural employment associated with the Agri-centric narrative, and measures to strengthen entrepreneurship and IT aspects of human capital could be a response to the depletion issues caused by the Urban-Rural narrative in PRR regions. Two summary points may be derived from Table 12.
