  • The shifting market trends posed a significant challenge to De Beers’ preeminent position. Throughout the 1990s, the company’s inventories increased while its sales remained flat. To address this issue De Beers chose a transformational strategy: instead of maintaining its long-standing role as steward of the entire industry, it would become a leader in driving consumer demand. One of the key elements of that transformation was a program called Supplier of Choice. Launched in 2003, the program aimed to shift some of the responsibility for marketing to other players in the industry.

  • The nontraditional distributor as a source of RH/FP information is being replicated in Northern Nigeria, a region that has proven particularly reluctant to use modern contraceptive methods.

But traditional beauticians (Mai Lalle) and hair stylists (Mai Kitso) have access to both young married and unmarried women. Pathfinder plans to train these women to counsel their clients on RH/FP issues, including healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies.

  • Credit scores, as a quantitative shorthand for credit histories, increase the potential for customized pricing of credit based on the risk an individual poses. Some argue that charging more to consumers defined as higher risk would remove some of the cost of risk carried by the general consumer population, and would allow for price reductions among consumers who pose less risk.

  • The single coherent form is particularly difficult to describe and assess because of the fluid transitions between the form elements which sculptor Erik Thommesen [8] have chosen to divide his sculptures in. First and foremost Thommesen uses theoretical dividing of a form into form elements when balancing the form into a harmonious whole by scaling and shifting each form element. Other effects such as rhythm, contrast, and activation of space can be processed in the same way [9]. The theoretical division of the form sometimes trigger a physical division.

  • This should be a puzzle. Much of the rationale for development economics as a specialization is the thought that poor countries suffer particularly frominstitutional failures.But institutional failures in greatmeasuremanifest themselves as externalities. To ignore population growth and ecological constraints in the study of poor countries would be to suppose that demographic decisions and resource-use there give rise to no externalities of significance, and that externalities arising from institutional failure have a negligible effect on resource-use and demographic behaviour.

  • For purposes of deriving/identifying categories, references having to do with courtship, sex, pair-bonding, parenting, fidelity, mate guarding, and provisioning were initially targeted, along with themes related to long-term as well as short-term mating strategies. In the process of attempting to code the lyrics it became apparent that emotional expressions could be partitioned into different action references. For instance, “love” could either convey commitment, fidelity assurance, or a non-specific state. “Love” represents commitment when sung as “I love you.

  • Sociality evolves when the net benefits of association with conspecifics exceed the costs. Individuals that live in social groups may be less vulnerable to predation, better able to defend valued resources, and able to benefit from pooling information, but they must also cope with resource competition from other group members, the threat of infectious diseases, and the risk of infanticide (Krause and Ruxton 2002).

  • This paper takes a new look at the relationship between stock prices and inflation, focusing in particular on how expected inflation affects expected long-horizon stock returns. The predominant academic view, which continues to be reflected in the literature [see, e.g., Barnes, Boyd and Smith (1999)], is that high expected inflation predicts low stock returns, a perspective largely based upon the analysis of monthly and quarterly returns.

  • Automatic sampler (optional)—The sampler must incorporate glass sample containers for the collection of a minimum of 250 mL of sample. Sample containers must be kept refrigerated at 4°C and protected from light during compositing. If the sampler uses a peristaltic pump, a minimum length of compressible silicone rubber tubing may be used. Before use, however, the compressible tubing should be thoroughly rinsed with methanol, followed by repeated rinsings with distilled water to minimize the potential for contamination of the sample.

  • More specifically, we must further examine health beliefs, and food beliefs and practices that have symbolic or traditional importance to determine how knowledge, beliefs and attitudes translate into eating behaviour in older adults, especially at advanced ages. More research is needed to clarify the relative contribution of income, ethnic background and other personal predictors of healthy eating – self-control, emotions, resistance to change, time constraints, lack of knowledge – and environmental factors governing food availability and cost.

  • From a general perspective, the verbal judgements referred to above have been obtained with one of two principal objectives in mind, objectives that have origi- nated and developed in traditionally differentiated pro- fessional fields: (1) that of environmental management, motivated by the need to solve a particular landscape problem, such as the identification of the landscape resources of a given location or to obtain some objecti- ve predictors of the evaluative judgements of users of a specific environment; and (2) that of a much more aca- demic character, geared to the develo...

  • There is a critical need for improved and shorter tuberculosis (TB) treatment. Current in vitro models of TB, while valuable, are poor predictors of the antibacterial effect of drugs in vivo. Mathematical models may be useful to overcome the limitations of traditional approaches in TB research. The objective of this study was to set up a prototype mathematical model of TB treatment by rifampin, based on pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic and disease submodels.
