  • Regardless of the motivation, sponsor behavior observed through these support instances suggests that while the costs can be significant, the perceived benefits at the time of support were greater to most fund sponsors. Understanding both the significance to the sponsor and their motivations would be important in making judgments as to whether investors should reasonably expect this model to continue, as it is possible that the sponsor value proposition could shift, especially where necessary support amounts are large. ...

  • “There is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than the creation of a new system” Machievelli. The development of a new computer system represents an area of potentially significant risk to an organisation. New computer systems are developed to meet a variety of business needs, whether they be to meet new legal requirements, to maintain or enhance profitability, to improve efficiency or to reduce costs. The failure of a new system could have a major impact on an organisation’s future viability and well being.

  • A person's soft skill EQ is an important part of their individual contribution to the success of an organization. Particularly those organizations dealing with customers face-to-face are generally more successful, if they train their staff to use these skills. Screening or training for personal habits or traits such as dependability and conscientiousness can yield significant return on investment for an organization.[2] For this reason, soft skills are increasingly sought out by employers in addition to standard qualifications....

  • The use of industrially manufactured nitrogen (N) fertilizers increased rapidly in developed countries between 1960 and 1980. This facilitated a large increase in the production of feed and food grains (maize, wheat, and rice) per unit of cultivated land, but in some regions it also contributed to enrichment of surface and groundwater with various forms of nitrogen. Fertilizer, however, is not the only source of nitrogen that can cause contamination of surface waters.

  • It must be noted that on 12 July 2010 the Commission proposed the extension of investor compensation schemes to cover investors in UCITS. The amendments to Directive 97/9/EC aimed to cover situations where a depositary is liable for the loss of assets of UCITS but is not able to cover its liabilities. This should serve as an additional means to increase the protection for investors in UCITS. However, at this stage this proposal has not been accepted by the Council and is subject to further negotiations.

  • Instruments used to predict future mutual fund returns include the aggregate dividend yield, the default spread, the term spread, and the yield on the three-month T-bill, variables identified by Keim and Stambaugh (1986) and Fama and French (1989) as important in predicting U.S. equity returns. The dividend yield is the total cash dividends on the value- weighted CRSP index over the previous 12 months divided by the current level of the index. The default spread is the yield differential between Moodys BAA-rated and AAA- rated bonds.

  • In this paper, we employ the bias-adjusted matching estimator developed by Abadie and Imbens (2006), which overcomes this difficulty. The matching estimator analysis maps the multiple matching variables into a single number that measures the distance to the observation to be matched and selects as control observations those with the lowest value for this distance. Matching estimators, therefore, make it possible to use several matching variables simultaneously.

  • Federal crop insurance policies are generally either yield-based or revenue-based. For most yield- based policies, a producer can receive an indemnity if there is a yield loss relative to the farmer’s “normal” (historical) yield. Revenue-based policies were developed after yield-based policies, in the mid-1990s, to protect against crop revenue loss resulting from declines in yield, price, or both. The most recent addition has been products that protect against losses in whole farm revenue rather than just for an individual crop.

  • Farm mechanization helps in effective utilization of inputs to increase the productivity of land and labour. Besides it helps in reducing the drudgery in farm operations. The early agricultural mechanization in India was greatly influenced by the technological development in England. Irrigation pumps, tillage equipment, chaff cutters, tractors and threshers were gradually introduced for farm mechanization.

  • Leadership is one of the most important and essential factors in good project management. Leadership can be seen as the art of influencing others to achieve desired results. Leaders guide behaviors by setting the vision, direction and the key processes; in other words, leadership has a large influence on the whole project process, including the actions of others. Jack Welch, previous CEO of General Electric, is reported to have called his direct reports together one day and issued a three word dictum: “Don’t manage! Lead!”(Slater, 1998).

  • Since each retailer has a monopoly power through the captive consumers, the strategies employed in the oligopolistic equilibrium depend on the pricing behavior of a hyphotetical monopolist facing the captive consumers. Before proceeding to solving the oligopoly model we will illustrate the optimal behavior of the consumers facing any price pair and, subsequently, pro t-maximizing strategy of the monopolist.

  • Fourth, this study applies new methodologies which have never been applied to emerging markets. For instance, Chapter 5 explores the determinants of risk-adjusted mutual fund performance using multidimensional regression in addition to the common approach, which is to use a zero-cost trading strategy. This alternative methodology can explore several factors simultaneously while controlling the effect between one and another. Using the two methods allows us to examine determinants of fund performance statistically and economically and it provides more meaningful results.

  • Use of vocabulary is an important aspect of academic writing. Again, following Storch and Tapper (2009), we examined the occurrences of vocabulary in the Academic Word List (AWL) developed by Coxhead (2000). The AWL consists of 570 word families derived from a corpus of academic texts drawn from our ‘sub- corpora’ from arts, commerce, law, and science (see Coxhead, 2000 for details). These words are academic words that are found across disciplines and comprise 9-10% of an academic text (Storch & Tapper, 2009).

  • • The classifications most likely to yield significant differences among identifiable groups of small businesses are industry, employee size of business, and years of business ownership. Industry produces the most divergent evaluation of problems, though some similarities be- tween industries do exist. The other classifications examined, for example legal form of business, exhibit fewer substantial differences among their components. It is important to note that when they differ, the differences are often functions of variations among groups in the aforementioned classifications.

  • However, this model is complicated by the fact that conflicts often occur in mixed-motive relationships where the involved parties both have cooperative and competitive goals and Mitchell’s model seems to have neglected this pluralistic/multifaceted/more complex dimension to the relationship. The competitive element creates conflict and the cooperative element creates incentives to negotiate an agreement. There are, however, studies that confirm that conflicts tend to occur even when the involved parties have highly compatible goals.
