  • Most observers of the economy now accept that a major shift occurred during the 1970s. The rapid productivity growth of the postwar years came to an end—for reasons that are still being debated among economists and historians. Wage growth lagged, and the economy suffered multiple shocks from energy prices and rapid inflation. The surge of births in the postwar baby boom meant that the labor force grew rapidly, while women were entering the labor force in numbers unprecedented in peacetime.

  • Our main empirical ndings are as follows. We nd that a range of nancial and macroeconomic variables prove helpful in selecting funds that are capable of generating future alphas. In particular, we nd evidence that a number of investment strategies (that use macroeconomic variables to predict fund returns) generate out-of-sample alphas from 7-9%/year (after fund-level trading costs and fees), when measured with a single-factor model, and from 12-13%/year with a four-factor model that controls for fund exposures to size, book-to-market, and momentum. ...

  • A focus on investments in agriculture, agribusinesses and other areas linked to agriculture. Given the research subject, the identified investment funds have a clear focus on investments in agriculture and/or agribusiness. The funds might therefore target agriculture directly or indirectly (e.g. through investments in MFIs that provide access to finance to smallholders). These funds may be part of a “family of funds” managed by a fund manager.

  • AUM of the equity funds increased nearly three folds from approximately 99 billion Baht in 2006 to 261 billion Baht in 2010. Unlike developed capital markets, proportion of equity funds to total asset under management of the industry in Thailand is stable around 11% and 15% in 2006 and 2010. Higher value of asset under management of equity funds can be decomposed into two factors, which are valuation and new flow factors. As Thai stock market index (SET) had increased from the vicinity of 700 points in 2006 to the level of 1,000 points in 2010, higher value in equity...

  • Monocropping can be used as a metaphor to describe educational systems in many developing countries. Education Volunteers are aware of the intense stress experienced by students whose families' hopes are pinned on their eventual success in a centralized academic system of education. The stress for you might come in trying to balance your students' expectations with your own inclinations, born of your experience in a system which, at least theoretically, aspires to equality and encourages diversity.

  • Because of this projects often stay at the pre-implementation stage; of course, this may be because the initial idea wasn’t a good one in the first place, or that it has proved not to be feasible. Finding out that a proposal is impracticable or unworkable is actually a useful result of a project as it eliminates mistakes which could prove costly if implemented without experimentation. On the other hand it’s very wasteful to lose successful innovations through unsuccessful implementation.

  • The remainder of the paper is as follows. The next section defines the standard approach and the notion of luck. Then, we define the F DR and explain our new methodology which allows us to compute the F DR among the best and worst funds separately. Section 3 presents the performance measures, the estimation technique to compute the p-values as well as the mutual fund data. Section 4 contains the empirical analysis of the impact of luck on performance across the four investment categories. Section 5 concludes.

We also noted numerous funds for which a no-action request was made but no support was subsequently disclosed. By reviewing the financial statements, we obtain additional information on the nature and amount of support on an ex post basis. Finally, as previously noted, our data set focuses only on direct support to U.S.

  • As the ratio of oxygen to fuel (or air to fuel) decreases, the products change from the desired carbon dioxide to the undesired carbon monoxide and then to soot (which is almost pure carbon) or unburned heptane. When an engine is operating on a high value of air/fuel ratio, we say the engine is running lean. Sometimes we may also speak of a lean-burning engine. When the air/fuel ratio is low, we say that the engine is running or burning rich. The carburetor or fuel injector system of an engine can be adjusted, at least to some extent, to change this ratio. It would seem,...

  • TSC stands for a bottom-up approach to cognition that has its basis in the claim that the evolution and development of cognition from simple to more complex processes are continuous (cf. Johnson & Rohrer 2006). The theory looks for support in the theory of biological evolution, data from developmental psychology, and analyses of the significance of the body for abstract thought by philosophers such as Dewey and Merleau-Ponty.

  • Enriching opportunity - not sincere apology. Prior to a large-scale extension project that would mean put- ting up walls to screen off the building sites inside the terminal, this was the slogan Copenhagen Airports adapted. When Copen- hagen was Cultural City of Europe in 1996, several shops in Terminal 2 were to be renovated and the decision was made to put art on the temporary walls rather than the usual ‘sorry for the inconvenience’ signs.

  • We measure the reliable transport of event features from source nodes to the sink in terms of the number of received data packets. Regardless of any application-specific metric that may actually be used, the number of received data packets is closely related to the amount of information acquired by the sink for the detection and extraction of event features. Hence, this serves as a simple but adequate event reliability measure at the transport level.

  • The presence of children is also a factor. Women who postponed having children after age 28 earned at least 6% more in 1998 than women who had their children earlier. This is because wage growth and promotion opportunities occur early in on womenís careers. 4 A 1996 Canadian study found that low paid workers tended to be young and female, with an education of high school or less. In addition, they often worked part time in service occupations.

  • But all these allusions to what was said or what has happened are quite unnecessary. The logic of the reform has an inexorability all its own: once the reform is entrenched in K-12, the university courses would have no place to go but to follow suit. Another induction step would result in a demand for reform in the graduate program. Thus in no time at all, the burning question of the day will be: are proofs allowed only in graduate courses? From a broader perspective, the reason we must object to the reform is that it threatens to bring down the whole education system.
