  • A man of native intelligence and shrewdness, and of good business training. Doctor Charles Harley Cleaveland might have rendered signal service had he not proved tactless and turbulent and disposed to controversialism. He knew little concerning Eclectic medicines, and through his conduct in the matter of the resinoids he became the most potent factor in bringing about the imbroglio which disrupted the college and led to the institution of a rival school in 1856.

  • Our new insight is on the interaction between relative labor turnover dynamics and lack of insurers’ premium flexibility. A related possibility is that high labor turnover may be preferred by some employers, especially small firms that employ homogenous workers with low job-specific human capital. Workers tolerant of high turnover tend to be younger and healthier. By not offering health insurance, despite the tax advantage, these firms deter older and less healthy workers.

  • Diamonds serve two main functions today: jewelry and industrial uses. Slightly more than 50 percent of the volume of diamonds extracted becomes gemstones for jewelry, yet they account for more than 95 percent of the total value. Polished diamonds have always been considered among the world’s most precious gemstones. They account for about 40 percent of all jewelry manufacturing; engagement rings are the largest category of diamond jewelry. Jewelers usually set the diamonds in precious metals such as gold or platinum to emphasize the sparkle of the stones.

  • The second question requires that we build an understanding of how the policy instrument effects production and productive efficiency. Our approach is similar to recent stochastic frontier analyses with panel data (Cornwell et al.

  • In film studies, there has been a longstanding and ideologically charged debate on the effects of selective depth of field. In his essay ‘The Evolution of the Language of Cinema’ (1950), André Bazin opted for the use of deep focus and long takes to offer the spectator a deliberately ambiguous rendering of the events depicted, so that he or she might explore them independently. According to Bazin, shallow depth of field in conjunction with the use of montage pre- organises the cinematic material and guides the viewer’s perception to a great degree.

RF and RHD remain to be conquered, but until that can be accomplished, optimal methods of prevention and management are required.

  • Avian influenza is here to stay. It has been always been around, and always co- existed with its host species - wild birds - without great cause for concern. Today we see it jumping across to domestic birds over and over again, killing whole flocks within days. While wild birds are being blamed for the outbreaks, free range farms are considered the biggest risk because of the potential contact between domestic and wild birds. Yet, wild birds have always carried avian influenza viruses. They have always migrated and had contact with backyard domestic poultry.

  • Estimating the results of legislative proposals to expand health insurance coverage is challenging, partly because there is so little empirical evidence concerning individual people’s responsiveness to health insurance mandates. Since 2007, adults in Massachusetts have been required to have health insurance or face penalties for noncompliance, but it may be too soon to infer the effect of mandates from that experience. Moreover, that experience itself could be unique to Massachusetts.

  • Global credit squeeze, escalating political tensions and monetary tightening will weigh on economic growth in 2008. From 2006 to 2007, the annual growth rate decreased from 6.9% to 4.5%. Slower growth in 2007 was attributable to the strength of the Turkish currency, which hurt the export industry, the delayed effects of monetary tightening in mid-2006 and a drought-related drop in agricultural output. The most significant slowdowns in growth in 2007 were in agriculture, construction and manufacturing.
