  • An additional benefit of hydrogen peroxide and Fenton's Reagent is the temporary increase of oxygen levels in and around the treatment area. The increased oxygen levels at the fringes of the treatment area can enhance naturally occurring aerobic biodegradation processes that reduce contaminant mass. While there may be concerns about oxidizing hydrocarbon-degrading bacteria in the chemical oxidation treatment area, many studies have shown that soil cannot be readily sterilized by Fenton's Reagent and that microbial populations rapidly rebound following chemical oxidation treatment.

  • Unable to impassively watch as health care spending spiraled upward, federal health care planners imposed an armada of regulations on the manner in which health care was provided to Medicare and Medicaid patients. The reg- ulatory binge in U.S. health care since the 1970s has produced nearly 50 kinds of federal and state health services’ regulations, which by 2002 was costing roughly $340 billion, about 20% of total health spending of $1,560 billion.

  • The most frequently used method in the literature is via indirect estimates from observed expenditure data, building on Pissarides and Weber (1989), who use food expenditure survey data to estimate the underreporting of British self-employed. The consumption-based method- ology has been applied in a host of settings (Lyssiotou, Pashardes and Stengos (2004), Feldman and Slemrod (2007), Gorodnichenko, Martinez-Vazquez and Sabirianova (2009), Braguinsky, Mityakov and Liscovich (2010)).

  • Information and communication technologies based on the Internet have enabled the emergence of new sorts of communities and communicative practices—phenomena worthy of the attention of anthropological researchers. Despite early assessments of the revolutionary nature of the Internet and the enormous transformations it would bring about, the changes have been less dramatic and more embedded in existing practices and power relations of everyday life.

  • The members of the cautious group, which have traditionally been protecting and supporting their agriculture markets, want to make sure that—despite progressing liberalization—there will be enough room for them to continue providing farmers with larger sums of support. As a result, this group wants to retain an instrument (such as the Green Box) through which larger amounts of subsidies can be paid to their farming sector to sustain a minimum degree of farming activity.

  • Policies of aggressive capitalization and extended amortization periods of use. Unlike enterprises that improve their results by increasing revenue, some companies increase their result by minimizing costs. They minimize their costs by aggressive capitalization of costs that should affect the profit and loss account also by depreciating amounts for extended periods. There are cases where expenditure to be capitalized is not easily determined and thus, it is recommended to appeal to professional judgment in order to determine whether or not capitalization is required.

  • Water pollution is the contamination of water resources by harmful wastes or toxins. This type of pollution can be dangerous to animals and plant populations in and around lakes, rivers, polluted groundwater areas or oceans, and can pose major problems for humans as well. Although natural phenomena, such as volcanoes and algae blooms, can create drastic changes in water quality, water is typically deemed polluted only when impaired by human contaminants.

  • The development of the Cambodian rubber industry during the past two years has been noticeably positive due to the substantial and continuous rise in prices of natural rubber. In 2007 and 2008, total harvested areas and natural rubber production increased by 30 per cent and 12 per cent, respectively. Additionally, the outcome of the divestment by the Government of Cambodia of its state-run rubber plantations has also been impressive. As of early 2009, the seven state-run plantations had already been privatized, discharging more weight of the public sector onto the private sector.

  • Although significant declines in fertility have occurred in most regions of the world, these have recently slowed in several countries. In many sub-Saharan African countries the fertility transition remains in its early stages. National level fertility declines also disguise significant variations within countries. Poor and rural populations often have the least access to family planning informa- tion and services, and thus the highest fertility rates.

  • California and Hawaii do not provide detailed performance standards within the legislation, these states have separate solar-specific equipment certification and contractor licensing requirements. Two other states with tax credits—Hawaii and Oklahoma—also have equipment certification standards and/or special contractor licenses to help ensure adequate performance. North Carolina lacks these state requirements but provides detailed equipment standards within the tax-credit legislation. More stringent quality assurance is required in Utah, Rhode Island, and Oregon.

  • By 2009, the server consolidation effort had resulted in consolidating 1,250 servers down to only 250 while consuming 60% less space, 70% less power, and 70% less cooling. These results came from the first two server virtualization tactics. Tactic 1 (virtualizing new, dedicated application environments) helped EMC to avoid buying 640 physical servers through December 2008. CPU utilization was not optimized, with the P2V consolidation ratio remaining at only 5:1, because servers were still dedicated to specific applications.

  • Once you have your thin pieces roughed out, they need to be brought to their final thickness, and the obvious choice for this is to use a planer, if you have one, or visit your local cabinet shop and use their planer or wide belt sander. Or you can belt sand the pieces with a hand belt sander to approximate thickness, though this is not a reliable means of getting a consistent thickness. Using hand planes to thickness the stock gives you more control, as well as sore muscles, but all kidding aside if you have a penchant for planes...

  • Falls, carbon monoxide poisoning, and burns are common injuries that occur in the home (18, 82). In 1991, 40% of fall fatalities occurred in children younger than 5 years of age; death usually occurs after falls from three or more stories (3, 33). Window barriers are a highly effective method of preventing toddler falls from windows; New York City has virtually eliminated window falls by using such barriers (89). Carbon monoxide poisoning is the cause of nearly all deaths from gas or vapor poisoning (28). Among them, about one-third are due to carbon monoxide emissions from...

  • In Lyme Borreliosis, western blot is the preferred serologic test. Antigen detection tests (antigen capture and PCR), although insensitive, are very specific and are especially helpful in evaluating the seronegative patient and those still ill or relapsing after therapy. Often, these antigen detection tests are the only positive markers of Bb infection, as seronegativity has been reported to occur in as many as 30% to 50% of cases. Nevertheless, active LB can be present even if all of these tests are non-reactive! Clinical diagnosis is therefore required.

  • Recyclables derived from the various MBT processes are typically of a lower quality than those derived from a separate household recyclate collection system and therefore have a lower potential for high value markets. The types of materials recovered from MBT processes almost always include metals (ferrous and non-ferrous) and for many systems this is the only recyclate extracted. However these plant can help enhance overall recycling levels and enable recovery of certain constituent items that may not otherwise be collected in household systems (e.g. batteries, steel coat hangers, etc.).

  • It is clear that Alberta needs legislation to accommodate the important role of depositories in modern securities trading. In 1989 CDS proposed certain amendments to the ABCA for this purpose, based upon similar provisions that were added to the Ontario Business Corporations Act ("OBCA) in 1986. Although these proposed amendments are basically compatible with the current version of UCC Article 8, we have concluded that they are not advisable at this time, and that a reformed, more innovative approach is required. ...

  • One company is training its producers on the use of social media because it believes the producer level is where it will be most useful (@Allstate, 2010). Another company’s director of social media said his goal is to give producers support in figuring out what they should say — and make sure they do not do something they should not. He said many producers previously got to the point of setting up a presence on a social media site, but then lacked the knowledge and confidence to use it successfully. As previously noted, some producers have made use...

  • This thesis investigates the protection landscape surrounding online banking. First, electronic banking is analysed for vulnerabilities and a survey of current attacks is carried out. This is represented graphically as an attack tree describing the different ways in which online transactions can be attacked. The discussion then moves on to various defences which have been developed, categorizing them and analyzing how successful they are at protecting against the attacks given in the first chapter.

  • The rest of this paper is structured as follows: Section 2 sets both alternatives against a more detailed history of innovation and the emergence of cinema consumption, sharpening our sense of both the technology aspect and the lag between technical possibility and take-off. In section 3 the available data sources relevant to understanding how the consumption of cinema grew are identified and analyzed in depth, and national differences decomposed in those due to technology and those due to taste.
