  • I’m always amazed where I find ideas and support for book projects, invariably in the oddest of places. Who’d have thought that the very earnest young man I interviewed for The 80% Minority five years ago from Mountain Equipment Co-Op would become a crucial member of my company’s team, let alone become my talented co-author. Sean’s retail expertise, but more importantly, his innate understanding of women consumers never ceases to amaze me. He teaches me every day.

  • BackGround Balanced, equitable and sustainable development of the fisheries sector must take all social groups into account. However, the role of women in the sector has, for a long time, gone unrecognised and their voice is heard rarely among managers, policy makers and legislators.1 The lack of recognition and representation is not only unfair, but it also leads to an incomplete understanding of how the sector as a whole operates and functions.

A significant leap in school enrollment has taken place during the last couple of years, and more than four million children are now in school, one-third of them girls, but this still represents only a little more than half of school-age children and 40% of girls. These figures hide dramatic regional disparities, with girls representing less than 15% of the total enrollment in nine provinces in the east and south.

  • According to Rubinow, the “one receptor-one action” model of hormone action has been overturned by the robust evidence for action of steroid hormones through both nuclear and membrane receptors, and by the mounting evidence for the role of co-regulators in modulation of hormone action. Rubinow argued that the same hormone may simultaneously exert opposite effects on the same system (e.g., cell survival), and these effects can change with time. More research in this area is needed to understand why women respond differently to the same hormonal stimuli.

  • This analysis of East Asian corporations allows us to study the subject of earnings informativeness in a different ownership context from that of the research on U.S. corporations. Our research results are also rich in policy implications. In general, our results support Ball, Kothari, and Robin (2000) by finding that policy makers should consider a country’s overall institutional environment before prescribing a comprehensive set of rules and regulations for corporate reporting.

  • Many World Bank Country Offices have a designated gender resource person. The effectiveness of these resource persons in assist- ing their colleagues and counterparts can, in some cases, be enhanced, and this will be one focus of capacity building for Bank staff. Building staff experience and competency in gender analysis and gender mainstreaming—rather than relying primarily on con- sultants—is central to the mainstreaming approach. Budget. Gender mainstreaming requires additional effort on the part of analytical and operational staff. Additional resources are therefore required.

  • The Government understands that IPTV will indeed play an important role in the future of television broadcasting. It is Government‘s expectation that local TV will develop in two phases, the first as outlined in this paper through services carried on the DTT platform; the second through IPTV.
