  • As far as the relationship of generation of each of the five elements is concerned, it is composed of two aspects--promoting and being promoted. The element that promotes is called the mother, while the element that is promoted is called the child. Hence, the relation of promoting and being promoted among the five elements is also known as that of mother and child. Take fire for example, since fire produces earth, it is called the mother of earth; on the other hand it is produced by wood, so it is called the child of wood. Restriction connotes bringing under control or restraint.

The total disease burden, including morbidity, is estimated at 36 million DALYs (WHO 2007). 3 These deaths and DALYs arise mainly from acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI) in young children and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in adults, and to a lesser extent lung cancer. There is also moderate evidence of increased risk of asthma, cataracts and tuberculosis (Desai et al, 2004; Smith et al, 2004).

  • The presence or lack of these five factors was the determinant of the role of religion in the given conflict. Due to the nature of this methodology these are debateable findings. For instance one leader may declare simply ‘May God bless us and watch over us’ whereas another may declare that ‘God calls us, his chosen people, to annihilate our enemies’.

  • Impoverishing the local resource base can impoverish wider areas: deforestation by highland farmers causes flooding on lowland farms; factory pollution robs local fishermen of their catch. Such grim local cycles now operate nationally and regionally. Dryland degradation sends environmental refugees in their millions across national borders. Deforestation in Latin America and Asia is causing more floods, and more destructive floods, in downhill, downstream nations. Acid precipitation and nuclear fallout have spread across the borders of Europe.

  • Further, Fich and Shivdasani (2006) find that firms with a majority of their outside directors serving on three or more boards have lower profitability. Thus busy non- executive directors may be over-committed and therefore unable to fulfil the role of effective monitors. In addition, Vafeas (2003) reports that longer outside director tenure adversely affects firm performance. Hwang and Kim (2009) find that the existence of substantial social ties between outside directors and top management diminishes the effectiveness of the monitoring role of non-executive directors. ...

Another student anonymously described having seen the film before, and feeling “far more removed from the film” because of the electronic music: “the experiment created an unconscious focus on where the film and the contemporary DJ track ‘synched’ up.

  • In the kidney, the Th2-mediated response is characterized by formation of immune complexes and deposition in the glomerulus, which is usually followed by complement activation. On the other hand, the Th1-mediated response is characterized by infiltration of circulating mononuclear cells and crescent formation.
