  • The initial stage of knowledge-telling consists of creating or retrieving what the author wants to say and then generating a text to say it. The author is not entirely egocentric in knowledge-telling and can begin to take into account the reader's needs. Specifically, by the time children are beginning to write they realize that another person's thoughts about the world may differ from their own. By about the age of 4, children have acquired a theory of mind that allows them to take another's perspective (Wellman, 1990; Wellman, Cross, & Watson, 2001).

  • The dominant nature of this long-short or spread trading activity explains why hedge funds do so well in market downturns (i.e. it is not directional). But it also explains why leverage needs to be relatively high: investing in a strong stock market generates strong returns, while investing in a low-risk spread in a long-short strategy does not. So the trade has to be levered up a number of times in order for the spread trades to generate competitive returns (while keeping the benefit of avoiding directional risk in the market).

  • All this was on my mind when the Secretary-General presented me with an argument to which there was no convincing rebuttal: No other political leader had become Prime Minister with a background of several years of political struggle, nationally and internationally, as an environment minister.

The challenge of facing the future, and of safeguarding the interests of coming generations.

  • Remember, not everyone should buy a long-term care insurance policy. For some, a policy is affordable and worth the cost. For others, the cost is too great, or the policy they can afford doesn’t offer enough benefits to make it worthwhile. You should not buy long-term care insurance if the only way you can afford to pay for it is by not paying other important bills. Look closely at your needs and resources, and discuss it with a family member to decide if long-term care insurance is right for you. (There are several worksheets at the back of this book that will help you as you think...

For some functions, the lowest appropriate level is a local authority or unit, while for other functions it is a central authority (e.g. Case Study I, India).
