For example, cotton fibers, wood ligno-celluloses, corn carbohydrates, soybean oils, and other plant constituents will be altered via designed changes in metabolic pathways.

  • In the current environment of a crisis of confidence in debt markets, many countries are encountering difficulty in obtaining private financing using traditional financial instruments. The scarcity of capital threatens to jeopardize long-term growth and employment generation in developing countries, which tend to have limited access to capital even in the best of times.

  • You probably didn't know that Scot and Monalisa did a love-scene together, did you? It was over fifty years ago, when they were both teen heart-throbs, and they were co-stars in a genuinely terrible straight-to-net film called No Hope, about a pair of clean cut youngsters who fall in love despite their class differences. It was a real weeper, and the supporting appearances in roles as dad, mum, best mate, priest, teacher, etc, were so forgettable that they could probably be used as treatment for erasing traumatic memories.

'Let no man jump to the conclusion that Babbitt must take his Ph.D. in ecology before he can "see" his own country. On the contrary, the Ph.D. may become as callous as an undertaker at the mysteries at which he officiates. . . . Perception, in short, cannot be purchased with either learned degrees or dollars; it grows at home as well as abroad.' The essential perception is of 'the natural processes by which the land and the living things upon it have achieved...

  • Gesture is the vehicle used in fitting a character into the role it is called upon to act out. We have drawn variously, dogs, mice, owls, elephants, cats, people, and so on; each distinct characters with distinct bodily shapes and bodily gestures. To approach a model with the idea of copying a human figure plus its clothing could be called a waste of time. Our interest is in seeing the differences in each personality and their individualistic gestures and, like a good caricaturist, capture the essence of those differences.

  • This is the great meaning of power sharing: the long years of endless conspiracy by all those who should know better, who share their power to create the monster. Napoleon eventually marches on Moscow and burns it, only to see his armies decimated by general Winterovich. Defeated, he descendeth into Elba; yet he is miraculously resurrected. “All rapturously greet the man they cursed the day before and will curse again a month later”. 6 Once more France shares its power with Napoleon; once more he is destroyed, this time by general Bluecher and Wellington.

  • We define a factor to be global if it is constructed from the global capital mar- ket, and we define a factor to be regional if it is constructed only from the rele- vant regional market. In this paper, we consider three regions: North America, Europe, and the Far East. Many articles (see for instance, Bekaert and Harvey (1995) and Baele (2005)) have noted that the market integration process may not proceed smoothly. Therefore, maximum f lexibility in the model with regard to the importance of global versus regional factors is necessary.

S/he shall assist the President in the performance of his/her duties as requested by the President.” This means that the Vice-President is the core of the cabinet.
