Some of this difference in activity between males and females can be explained by the historical disparity in opportunities for females. Since 1972, when Title IX was implemented, more females have become involved in organized sport. We have yet to discover the effects of this increased participation on lifetime activity among females....

  • Though it is widely recognized that the population of the United States is aging, much of our current understanding in the field of individual decision making is based on data from student populations. While this could be a consequence of subject availability, it may reflect a common though largely unsubstantiated belief that decision making ability declines with aging (Peters 2000). Many older individuals are productive and intellectually viable throughout their lives. Still, others are vulnerable to dementia and neurodegenerative illnesses, such as Alzheimer's disease.

  • Weblogs and message boards provide online forums for discussion that record the voice of the public. Woven into this mass of discussion is a wide range of opinion and commentary about consumer products.

  • Applications running on a UNIX platform need to be no- tified when some activity occurs on a socket or other de- scriptor, and this is traditionally done with the select() or poll() system calls. However, it has been shown that the performance of these calls does not scale well with an in- creasing number of descriptors. These interfaces are also limited in the respect that they are unable to handle other potentially interesting activities that an application might be interested in, these might include signals, file system changes, and AIO completions.

  • This article will discuss the interweaving of that erotic pleasure in film, its meaning, and in particular the central place of the image of woman. It is said that analysing pleasure, or beauty, destroys it. That is the intention of this article. The satisfaction and reinforcement of the ego that represent the high point of film history hitherto must be attacked. Not in favour of a reconstructed new pleasure, which cannot exist in the abstract, nor of intellectualised unpleasure, but to make way for a total negation of the ease and plenitude of the narrative fiction film.

  • The chosen gait of the one-humped camel on free range is a leisurely but almost a continuous walk. When walking the camel covers about 4 km/hour. They have often been tracked to cover 50 km during a day’s feeding, but 30 km is very common. Very young camels exhibit vigorous, spontaneous play, including some running and jumping. By 2 to 3 weeks age they are involved in playgroups similar to those formed by lambs, kids and buffalo/cow calves. These groups remain almost together between feeds. Mature camels will hasten towards a feed supply, usually at a jog, but...

  • By creating the Federal Reserve System, Congress intended to eliminate the severe f inancial crises that had periodically swept the nation, especially the sort of f inancial panic that occurred in 1907. During that episode, payments were disrupted throughout the country because many banks and clearinghouses refused to clear checks drawn on certain other banks, a practice that contributed to the failure of otherwise solvent banks. To address these problems, Congress gave the Federal Reserve System the authority to establish a nationwide check-clearing system.

Small business owners are not able to adjust the price of their goods and services quickly enough to match the steep energy cost increases without hurting their customer base. Second, owners are not able to change business practices fast enough to offset the increases.

Financial resources are not infinite. An organization’s wish to be as helpful to the media as possible must be counterbalanced by a program that fits within its available budget. ...
