The result of months of intensive investigations and inquiries by a specially appointed bipartisan panel, The 9/11 Commission Report is one of the most important historical documents of the modern era. And while that fact alone makes it worth owning, it is also a chilling and valuable piece of nonfiction: a comprehensive and alarming look at one of the biggest intelligence failures in history and the events that led up to it. The commission traces the roots of al-Qaeda's strategies along with the emergence of the 19 hijackers and how they...
Governing Water (2004 – 2007) is a project funded by the European Commission. The aim is to raise awareness and promote dialogue on good governance, using water as a discussion issue, within and between communities in Fiji. More than 40 rural and urban communities on Viti Levu and Vanua Levu have participated in the Governing Water project. Through Governing Water, over 300 community facilitators and schoolteachers have been trained.
The discovery and utilization of fire, a simple energy source with many profound uses, was a turning point in the technological evolution of humankind. The exact date of its discovery is not known; evidence of burnt animal bones at the Cradle of Humankind suggests that the domestication of fire occurred before 1,000,000 BC; scholarly consensus indicates that Homo erectus had controlled fire by between 500,000 BC and 400,000 BC.

Progress Microfinance has been implemented through two actions, both of which are managed by
EIF. They are: 1) a guarantee instrument to providers of micro-credit (funded entirely by the
European Commission); and 2) a structured investment vehicle set up under Luxembourg law, the
European Progress Microfinance Fund, funded by the European Commission and the EIB.
The importance of innovation was highlighted by the March 2000 European Council in
Lisbon. As a response to the challenges of globalisation and the new knowledge-driven
economy, the European Council called for a challenging programme for building knowledge
infrastructures, enhancing innovation and economic reform, and modernising social welfare
and education systems.
Finally, the analysis of national sanctioning regimes carried out by the Commission, along
with the Committees of Supervisors (now transformed into European Supervisory
Authorities) has shown a number of divergences and weaknesses which may have a negative
impact on the proper application of EU legislation, the effectiveness of financial supervision,
and ultimately on competition, stability and integrity of financial markets and consumer
Valuation of all assets and liabilities, other than technical provisions should be
carried out, unless otherwise stated in conformity with International Accounting
Standards as endorsed by the European Commission. They are therefore considered
a suitable proxy to the extent they reflect the economic valuation principles of
Sewage sludge has been used in agriculture over a long time. Since 1986 the utilization of
sewage sludge has been subject to provisions stipulated in the EU Directive (86/278/EEC).
The Directive sets out requirements with respect to the quality of sludge, the soil on which it
is to be used, the loading rate, and the crops that may be grown on treated land. The
European Commission considers that 86/278/EEC has been a success because there have
been no reports of adverse effects wherever it has been applied.
The developments in 2002 started with the Commission’s recommendation for an
early warning when it became apparent that Germany and Portugal would deviate
significantly from the envisaged consolidation paths and would be close to the 3% of
GDP limit for the deficit. When the Commission launched its annual review of public
finances in Member States, rumours spread out on 17 January that it was considering
an early warning to Germany and Portugal.
The remarkable political changes that have
taken place within the European Region in
the last five years have greatly enlarged the
potential for international collaboration. The
First European Conference on Environment
and Health was held in Frankfurt in December
1989, when these dramatic changes
were at their height. Ministers from 29 countries,
and the European Commission, approved
a Charter that set out the principles,
strategy and priorities for achieving an effective
approach to the many areas in which environmental
conditions may significantly affect
Directive also covers new issues such as the passport for third-country managers that have so far never been in the scope of CESR/ESMA’s work. In this context, the process should be seen as still very much open ended and thus as an opportunity for the alternative investment industry to fully engage with ESMA and the European Commission so as to translate the current framework into sensible and appropriate measures whenever possible.
Nearly 40 implementing measures, technical standards and guidelines concern third-country AIFs or AIFMs.
The EU authorities have an ambitious regulatory agenda in
2012 with a host of new rules in prospect that will have a
broad impact on the fund industry. In relation to UCITS,
new rules will be issued for UCITS ETFs and Structured
UCITS that will tighten the regulatory framework for
these products. In addition the European Commission is
working on a new UCITS V proposal to align the depositary
framework with the requirements of the AIFMD.
There is little empirical evidence regarding the responsiveness of individuals to health insurance mandates. Two states (Hawaii and Massachusetts) require many of their employers to provide coverage for employees or face penalties, but the responsiveness to a mandate requiring employers to offer insurance is likely to be different from the reaction to a broader mandate that individual people obtain coverage. Although Massachusetts currently requires adults to have health insurance, that mandate has been in existence for less than four years.
Today’s ‘renaissance’ of the railways has only been possible thanks to a multitude of
powerful research initiatives aimed at making fundamental improvements in the system
as a whole. Now, keeping rail at the forefront as the most environmentally friendly major
transport mode requires an even more rapid adoption of new technologies for clean and
efﬁ cient energy.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an intergovernmental
organisation in which representatives of 30 industrialised countries in North America, Europe and the
Pacific, as well as the European Commission, meet to co-ordinate and harmonize policies, discuss
issues of mutual concern, and work together to respond to international problems. Most of the
OECD’s work is carried out by more than 200 specialised Committees and subsidiary groups
composed of Member country delegates.
