The concern I want to raise in this chapter is related to the relationship between indigenous
identities, knowledge systems and indigenous values and world views compared to world
views found in South Africa’s new curricula after new dispensation. What are the values the
indigenous pupils meet at home? Do they concur with those of the new curricula after 1994?
The rationale for this focus is related to the question of whether the South African primary
school is ‘their school’, i.e the school for the majority of South African children in terms of
culture and knowledge....
Global agriculture is now at the crossroads. The Green Revolution of the last century that gave many developing countries such as India a breathing spell, enabling them to adjust the growth of their human populations better to the supporting capacity of their ecosystems, is now in a state of fatigue. Average growth rates in food production as well as factor productivity in terms of yield per unit of mineral fertilizer (NPK) are both declining.
Our knowledge partner Value Partners, a leading global management
consultancy firm with strong experience in telecom and media, and the staff at
Dubai Press Club have worked together to make the report as comprehensive
and accurate as possible. In addition to relying on primary and secondary
research on the subject, we have also interviewed representatives of over
125 media organizations from the countries covered. The report has been
particularly enriched through the incorporation of interview findings that played
an important role in getting direct industry feedback.
I would like to express my
deepest gratitude to all theauthors who contributed to this book by sharing their
valuable works with us. This book should prove useful to students, researchers, and
experts in the area of conservation biology, genetic diversity, and molecular biology.
The year 2010 was celebrated as the international year of biodiversity by the United
Nations and it has been a unique opportunity to realize the vital role that biodiversity
plays in sustaining the life on Earth.
There are currently 15 states offering income-tax credits for renewable energy technologies,
with nine states offering both personal and corporate tax credits. These programs are
administered by state revenue departments or other state agencies. All but three of these 15
states consider both solar and wind technologies eligible for the incentive. Credits against
income tax range from 10% to 35% of equipment and installation costs for both personal and
corporate income-tax credits. Three states have performance-based credits.
Small firms also tend to fill niches in the labor market that are underserved (often have high rates of
unemployment, for example). Small firms employ higher shares of Hispanics than large firms (65.9
percent of Hispanics work for firms with fewer than 500 employees).
And compared with large
firms, small firms also employ higher shares of individuals with low educational attainment—a high
school degree or less (63.2 percent); high school-aged workers (63.8 percent); individuals 65 or
older (64.6 percent); disabled workers (59.4 percent); and rural workers (64.3 percent).
These CNVs may show
association with certain clinical conditions and help in predicting risk and also
diagnosis. All these approaches have their merits and demerits and in general are
tedious, time consuming and need manpower with stringent handling. This naturally
prompted the development of several automated methods for culturing cells in mass
scale, use of membrane bioreactors, and image analysis for interpreting the cytogenetic
Europe has many market niches where traditional forms of production are still
dominant. The geographic variety of Europe certainly stimulates the existence
of diverse niches with a clear local colour and identity. Even in the age of mass
production and consumption such pockets of often place-bound products have
not disappeared. Rather, they are enjoying a comeback, as the public at large is
increasingly looking for goods with indigenous or specific qualities.
Pharmaceutical products covered in the Pharmaceutical Zero-for-Zero Initiative can be
imported either as bulk active ingredients or in dosage forms that can be packaged for
retail sale. Products in dosage form are generally classified under chapter 30 of the HTS,
where most of the subheadings are duty-free. Many of the bulk pharmaceutical active
ingredients and chemical intermediates are classified under HTS subheadings that also
contain non-pharmaceutical products and have rates of duty ranging from 0 to 6.5 percent
Uninsured low-income childless adults are a diverse group that includes men and women living in all
parts of Wisconsin. About half of these adults are working full time or are self-employed, working full
time. Over half have not had a checkup during the past two years. Twenty-two percent of low-income
uninsured childless adults have a chronic condition; that is, have been diagnosed as having arthritis, heart
disease, diabetes, cancer, or a stroke.
Crop insurance and other government programs for farmers are also linked via disaster programs.
The Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments Program (SURE) requires the purchase of crop
insurance for program eligibility.
For participation in commodity programs listed above, there is
no crop insurance requirement.
Nine out of ten non-elderly Americans with private health
insurance receive it through their employer.
generally understand how job-based coverage works,
because it is the most common form of coverage.
Employer coverage is subsidized, and nearly all
employers pay at least half of the premium. On average,
employers pay 83 percent of the cost of single coverage
and 73 percent of the cost of family coverage.
employees have a strong incentive to sign up for employer
coverage, regardless of their health or financial status.
The United States Capitol Building is filled with
symbols and architectural details that reference
ancient Greek and Roman art and architecture.
Italian artist Constantino Brumidi (1805–1880)
created a series of murals, based on his study
of Pompeian frescoes, for the Naval Affairs
Committee Room (now the Senate Appropriations
Conference Room) in the Capitol. For information,
visit www.gpo.gov/congress/ senate/brumidi.
Look at the Maenad fresco on the enclosed CD.
This image inspired some of Brumidi’s work.
Mulford et al conclude that attractive people ‘have more opportunities for social
exchange, but those opportunities are with others who are relatively inclined to cooperate.’
(1998, 1585). Significantly, the same researchers also identify subjects’ perceptions of their own
attractiveness as important determinants of behaviour.
It is important to recognise the emotional aspect of beauty.
Developments in the dairy sector have to be seen in the context of the evolving nature of dairy
policy and trade policy. Although Agenda 2000 and more particularly the MTR have brought
about a considerable change in support to the dairy sector, existing CAP instruments such as
milk quotas, super levies, intervention prices, dairy premiums, processing aids, export
subsidies and import tariffs still affect the supply and demand for milk and milk products.
Representatives from the Canadian Council on Social Development, Red por los Derechos de la
Infancia en México (The Children’s Rights Network in Mexico), and the Annie E. Casey Foundation
have come together to create the Children in North America Project based on our shared inter-
est in the well-being of all children. We recognize that Canada, Mexico, and the United States have
common bonds and challenges in ensuring that our children grow up healthy, not just because of
geography, but also because of increasing economic, social, and cultural interaction. ...
Protection of human dignity is one of the cardinal principles
of bioethics and has been enshrined in a number of
international instruments. Most notable in relation to the
present discussion is the UNESCO Universal Declaration
on the Human Genome and Human Rights which state
in article 11, that:” Practices which are contrary to human
dignity, such as reproductive cloning of human beings,
shall not be permitted.
Search strategies were developed with PubMed using Medical Subject Heading [MeSH]
and title abstract [tiab] terms to identify relevant exposures (organic vs. conventional
production methods) and outcomes (composition of nutrient and other substances). The
exposure terms searched (including all MeSH, headings, subheadings and tiab terms)
were “organic”, “health food”, “conventional” combined with “food”, “agricultural crop”,
Pentabromotoluene has been used as a flame retardant in polyester and other polymers, latex,
textiles, rubbers and plastics. Information on trends in use and production volume is unavailable.
No information was identified as to whether it is used as an additive or reactive flame retardant
(Fisk et al., 2003). Pentabromotoluene has been detected at low levels in pooled samples of
Herring Gull eggs in the Great Lakes basin (Gauthier et al., 2007). Low levels were also found
in male plasma and egg yolk of Glaucous Gulls from the Norwegian Arctic (Verreault et al.,
Liquidity management: A more centralized (branch) model would allow global banks
with wholesale operations to manage liquidity more efficiently at the group level,
allowing them to transfer liquidity where it is most needed (in normal times, as well as
at times of stress, absent barriers placed on transferring funds across jurisdictions in
excess of the regulatory requirements).
