  • But how far should the public sector go in defining the terms of maturity transformation?. It would be reassuring to imagine that underlying saving and investment propensities of the private sector define the real interest rate in normal times. Keynes threw some doubt on this classical view. In addition, the fact is that government policies nowadays dominate the terms of maturity transformation in modern economies. Very large government debt defines the yield curve.

  • Global warming and changes in climate have already had observed impacts on natural ecosystems and species. Natural systems such as wetlands, mangroves, coral reefs, cloud forests, Arctic and high latitude ecosystems are especially vulnerable to climate‐induced disturbances. Enhanced protection and management of biological resources and habitats can mitigate impacts and contribute to solutions as nations and communities strive to adapt to climate change. Biodiversity is the foundation and mainstay of agriculture, forests, and fisheries.

  • Microseismic (passive) seismic monitoring was conducted at Weyburn to monitor the dynamic response of the reservoir rock matrix to CO2 injection (i.e., stress release due to injectioninduced deformation) and assess the level of induced seismicity in regard to safety of existing surface infrastructure and as an alternative means of mapping the spread of CO2 within the reservoir. An array of eight, three-component geophones was permanently installed just above the oil reservoir, which is located at approximately 1,450-meter depth.

  • Hydroxyurea’s efficacy in sickle cell disease is generally attributed to its ability to raise the levels of Hb F in the blood; however, the mechanisms by which it does so are unclear. Early studies suggested that hydroxyurea is cytotoxic to the more rapidly dividing late erythroid precursors, resulting in the recruitment of early erythroid precursors with an increased capacity to produce Hb F.

  • The proposed nutrition principles apply to individual foods, as well as to main dishes and meal products. The Working Group started with a set of proposed food group contributions and nutrient limits for individual foods. It then calculated appropriate adjustments to accommodate main dishes and meals, as those products are defined by federal labeling regulations. The adjustments reflect the fact that main dishes and meals are 18 defined as containing at least two or three 40-gram food portions respectively, and include foods from two or more of four food groups.

  • The Internet is the main cause of the recent explosion of activity in optical fiber telecommunications. The high growth rates observed on the Internet, and the popular perception that growth rates were even higher, led to an upsurge in research, development, and investment in telecommunications. The telecom crash of 2000 occurred when investors realized that transmission capacity in place and under construction greatly exceeded actual traffic demand. This chapter discusses the growth of the Internet and compares it with that of other communication services.

  • The following paragraphs present a synthesis of the development of the management control concept in the literature. We have pointed out the existence of different trends of thought, which have gradually evolved as organisations and markets have transformed, introducing new variables for building efficient control systems adapted to social changes, to the process of internationalisation and to increased market competition (Jaeger and Balinga, 1985; Neimark and Tinker, 1986).

  • While prominence in health policy greatly affects the size of the PHI market – in terms of population coverage, contribution to health financing or scope of government interventions – there is no necessary link between the three factors. There are sizeable PHI markets in a range of health systems with diverse mixes of public and private financing. The size of PHI markets may also result from consumer demand for better choice and more comprehensive cover, even where there is little stimulation through policy levers.

  • A common approach to adjusting for seasonal and long-term trends is to use semiparametric models which incorporate a smooth function of time. The use of nonparametric smoothing in time series models of air pollution and health was suggested in Schwartz (1994a), where generalized additive Poisson models were used with LOESS smooths of time, temperature, dewpoint temperature and PM10. This approach can be thought of as regressing residuals from the smoothed dependent variable on residuals from the smoothed regressors.
