  • Major health problems in Myanmar, which are most likely to be exacerbated by this crisis, relate predominantly to communicable diseases (malaria, dengue, measles) and malnutrition, especially in children. As of 2003, 40% of children under five were assessed as being stunted, indicating chronic malnutrition and 10% as being wasted (acute malnutrition) (UNICEF). Major causes of death are usually due to malaria, respiratory and diarrhoeal diseases.

  • Mass media still accounts for the bulk of ad spending: television (44.1 percent), magazines (21.1 percent), newspapers (17.2 percent), radio (7.0 percent), and outdoor (2.6 percent).

  • People who pursue careers in Internal Medicine are drawn to the specialty by a love of patients, mechanisms, discovery, education, and therapeutics. We love hearing the stories told to us by our patients, linking signs and symptoms to pathophysiology, solving the diagnostic dilemmas, and proposing strategies to prevent and treat illness. It is not surprising given these tendencies that internists prefer to continue their life-long learning through problem solving. This book is offered as a companion to the remarkable 17th edition of Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine.

  • Water contamination weakens or destroys natural ecosystems that support human health, food production, and biodiversity. Studies have estimated that the value of ecosystem services is double the gross national product of the global economy, and the role of freshwater ecosystems in purifying water and assimilating wastes has been valued at US$ 400 billion (2008$) (Costanza et al. 1997). Freshwater ecosystems are among the most degraded on the planet, and have suffered proportionately greater species and habitat losses than terrestrial or marine ecosystems (Revenga et al. 2000).

  • First, the concentrated decision rights within the firms allow them to operate in greater secrecy. A politician may desire more secrecy in order to maintain a reputation of integrity. The firms also prefer operating in secret in order to discourage entry by competitors. Second, compared to a hired manager in a widely held firm, a controlling owner is more secure in his position in the firm and thus has more credibility on which to trade favors with the government.

  • Introduction: It may seem something of a truism to describe an element as unique, but hydrogen is certainly one of the more unusual elements in the periodic table. It is the lightest element and consists of only a proton and an electron and is thus the only element not to contain a neutron in its main isotope (1H). In its stable molecular form (H2), it is also the least dense and the most abundant in the universe. Perhaps surprisingly, given that its low density results in gaseous hydrogen being almost nonexistent in the Earth’s lower atmosphere, it is also the...

  • This book accomplishes two goals. First, it provides an in-depth description of budgetary politics and policy-making in state budget offices. The data rendered in these chapters fills a significant gap in our understanding of state budget processes, and how budgeting and policy-making are linked in state budget offices. Except for a few important attempts in the early 1960s, very little is written about state budget office activities, which is surprising given their crucial position at the nexus of budgeting and policy-making in many states.

  • Technically speaking, digital projection does not radically change classic film projection even though the mechanical projector head has been replaced by a digital head, the film spool by a hard disk drive and the platter system by a server. We have already paid utmost attention to these points in order to ensure that the projection quality practically remains the same. Of course, the picture is not visible on its photosensitive carrier anymore: It is from now on quantified...

  • Excluded from the defi nition of “swap dealer” are entities entering into swaps for their own account and “not as part of a regular business.”16 Accordingly, it is likely that many private funds would be excluded from the defi nition, in the same way that private funds are generally considered to be “traders” and not “dealers” under Section 3(a)(5) of the Exchange Act because they buy and sell securities for their own account and not as part of a regular business. Additionally, a person or entity that engages in a de minimis quantity of swap dealing is not...

  • Smart-home technology may give the nursing personnel security in that they will be warned when dangers occur in other parts of the house. The result is that the nursing personnel can concentrate entirely on one person at a time. More time may in this way be spent on human care, instead of control routines. Altered routines lead to less stress and less exhaustion for nurses. This will in the long run have a positive effect on the occupiers. Elderly people often have objections to ICT. Ignorance is often a decisive reason. Information and knowledge about ICT will be important in...

  • These capital requirements were notable because, for the first time, regulatory minimum capital requirements could be based on the output of banks’ internal risk measurement models. The market risk capital requirements thus stood in sharp contrast to previous regulatory capital regimes, which were based on broad, uniform regulatory measures of risk exposure.

  • If the initial target is set as a result of competitive tendering, then the employer may feel some assurance that he is obtaining ‘value for money’. But if the target is negotiated or later has to be varied, then the employer may feel that the contractor’s knowledge of his intended methods and costs may enable him to add a margin in the target estimate to safeguard his position. This means that it is improbable that the target cost will ever be lower than the contractor’s privately estimated bottom line price....

  • The universal UDF SAS_JOB represents a complex multi-step process that calls into all the SAS In-Database subsystems that can reside in the DBMS: formats (TKFORMAT subsystem), data transformation and model scoring (TKFUNCTIONS and TSPL subsystems), and analytics (TKSCIENCE subsystem). Both SAS clients and DBMS clients can use the integrated SAS servers. A SAS client communicates directly with the SAS servers deployed on the DBMS head node. The SAS client can execute SAS jobs inside the DBMS by sending commands to the SAS servers that are running on the DBMS head nodes.

  • Often we mathematicians are inarticulate when challenged to explain why mathematics is such a critical aspect of K - 12 education today. We know it is, but are so involved in the subject that we have not looked at the broader perspective of the way in which mathematics actually interacts with today’s society. So what follows are some observations that may well be useful in this regard.

  • The number of scientific journals is vast and is growing steadily, which means that there are plenty of publishing opportunities. The fundamental reason behind the growing number of journals is the increasing number of researchers globally. Quite often you can hear researchers complaining that there are no scientific journals for their specific narrow research field. Most often this is not true. Journals exist for wide and varying topical fields. Should you find it difficult to find a suitable one, try considering potential applications for your results.
