  • building raised beds. Raised beds have soil a few inches or more higher than the surrounding area, which provides extra rooting depth, and helps the soil drain and warm up in the spring. They’re typically 3 to 4 feet wide, with mulched paths in between, so you walk on the paths and don’t compact the soil in planting areas. Raised bed sides can be made with reused lumber, broken concrete or concrete blocks, recycled plastic lum- ber, or any non-toxic material. (Don’t use treated wood.)

  • A mandate requiring all individuals to pur- chase health insurance would be an unprece- dented form of federal action. The government has never required people to buy any good or service as a condition of lawful residence in the United States. An individual mandate would have two features that, in combination, would make it unique. First, it would impose a duty on individuals as members of society. Second, it would require people to purchase a specific service that would be heavily regu- lated by the federal government.

  • The second domain, environmental pollutants, encompasses exposures that might bring about chronic conditions or exacerbate these conditions. We include in this domain air, water, and other toxic pollutants. For example, repeated exposure to toxic waste sites may result in malignancies later in life (American Cancer Society, 2002), which in turn may lead to functional decline (Teno et al., 2001; Michael et al., 2000). Thus, exposure to water contamination or toxic wastes is likely to affect health status, particularly though cumulated effects in the lifecourse.

  • Often, several of these testing techniques are used together to gain more comprehensive assessment of the overall network security posture. For example, penetration testing usually includes network scanning and vulnerability scanning to identify vulnerable hosts and services that may be targeted for later penetration. Some vulnerability scanners incorporate password cracking. None of these tests by themselves will provide a complete picture of the network or its security posture. Table 3.1 at the end of this section summarizes the strengths and weaknesses of each test.
