  • The state of a normal or diseased cell is determined by external signals and by its intrinsic gene expression pat- tern. Transcription factors (TFs) are major regulators of gene expression, typically controlling more than one gene and acting in concert. Such TF-gene interactions can be described as networks, which are crucial to understand hierarchies of gene expression regulation. The identifica- tion of TF binding sites (TFBSs) in genomic DNA sequences has played an important role in predicting tran- scriptional networks.

  • The current system the IDB is using to measure the success and impact of fund projects, beneficiary evaluations, is really inadequate. What is needed instead is ex ante data on the condition or the availability of the kind of infrastructure that is going to be built. That needs to be in the fund application so that ex post the Bank can see the improvement in the infrastructure made by the fund operation to measure its impact on improved living conditions in the local community.

  • Reducing Poverty and Improving the Environment and Citizen Health in Brazil Favelas (slums) are a primary feature of urban development in Brazil. These informal settlements often occupy environmentally precarious areas such as steep hillsides and riverbanks, and usually lack key infrastructure, in particular sanitation and sewerage systems. This has resulted in increased rates of disease and mortality. Brazil has, however, made significant steps in addressing the problems which beset the favelas.

  • Private non commercial arrangements, such as mutuals, go back a few hundreds of years, or more, in several OECD countries, pre-dating many public health coverage or social insurance programmes. Many of the countries where private health insurance has a prominent role – for example, the United States, Australia, Ireland, the Netherlands, France – have some tradition of private financing and private provision of health services.

  • Notions of Inter-Viewing, viewing into, and viewing ourselves occupy the center of this publication. Kathleen Biddick opens the work of the medievalist on a note of enjoyment, including the capacity to incite curiosity and wonder. On the basis of an interview with Madeline Caviness, Biddick shows the person, the career, and the writing of Caviness in terms of “shattering,” “grafting,” and “queer performance.” One circle of essays considers a self-conscious assessment of critical theorizing.

  • These curriculum materials explore the cultural and artistic life in Pompeii and other towns around the Bay of Naples in the centuries leading up to the eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79. Two works of art, the mosaic Plato’s Academy (1st century BC–1st century AD) and the fresco Garden Scene (1st century BC–1st century AD), are examples of the embellishments applied to the gardens and interiors of Pompeian villas. A marble sculpture of the goddess Aphrodite from the early first century reflects the Roman interest in Greek mythology, art forms, and styles.

  • The question is how to translate the theoretical arguments of Keynes and Tirole into a policy that influences (but not rigidly determine) the long-term interest rate. Keynes’s prescription was that the government should gear its issuance policy to defining an upward-sloping floor for the risk-free yield curve. As will be noted below, the specific proposal of Keynes in 1945 was for a tap issue of both 5-year and 10-year bonds at fixed rates. How to do this in present-day terms? To provide the required insulation from inflation shocks, inflation-linked debt would be best.

  • Seismic – At the Weyburn Field, multi-component 3-D surface seismic time-lapse surveys were conducted at intervals of approximately 12 months, starting prior to the commencement of CO2 injection in 2000, and repeated in 2001 and 2002. The resultant time-lapse images (primarily seismic amplitude changes) acquired at Weyburn clearly map the spread of CO2 over time within the reservoir, fulfilling a key objective set at the outset of the project.

  • Event-driven programming is a popular model for writing programs for tiny embedded systems and sensor network nodes. While event-driven programming can keep the memory overhead down, it enforces a state machine programming style which makes many programs difcult to write, maintain, and debug. We present a novel programming abstraction called protothreads that makes it possible to write eventdriven programs in a thread-like style, with a memory overhead of only two bytes per protothread.

  • It is important to understand at the outset the natural hydrochemical conditions that exist in aquifer systems, as these provide the necessary baseline from which quality changes caused by human impacts can be determined. The natural hydrochemical conditions may also affect the behaviour of some pollutants. Because groundwater movement is typically slow and residence times long, there is potential for interaction between the water and the rock material through which it passes.
