  • Standardised, regularly available indicators to explain market developments for microfinance in Europe do not yet exist, or refer to Eastern Europe. Thus, we will focus in this section on the framework conditions for microfinance which are covered by the regularly updated Eurostat indicators for poverty and social inclusion, and by data on micro-enterprises. Specific aspects of the current crisis will be discussed later in this paper.

  • Our database contains relatively few European sector funds (shown in section III of Table 1), particularly prior to 2003. It is worth noting that the division between sector funds and country funds is less clear-cut than may rst seem the case. Indeed, some of the smaller European stock markets are dominated by a few rms and one or two sectors (e.g., Nokia in the Finnish stock market). Thus, investors likely used country funds to invest in certain industries during earlier periods of our time-series.

  • In the US, once the Nickelodeons had emerged between 1905 and 1907, their audience seems to have been mixed. Women and children probably constituted about half of the audiences and they might even have been the majority of visitors. Richard Abel relates, for example, that in New York, women often went with their children to the Nickelodeon after or during shopping, as these venues were handily located in the shopping districts (Abel 1999: 48).

  • Often, researchers make the mistake of believing that writing an article is a separate phase to be done after completing the entire research. We recommend that researchers start writing much sooner. From the effectiveness perspective, it is not wise to wait for a moment when you feel that you know and understand “everything” needed for writing articles. It is more sensible to start learning to write piece-by-piece, better enabling the perception of what to do and when, and thus aiding the avoidance of unnecessary work.

  • In classical data warehousing terms, organizing data is called data integration. Because there is such a high volume of big data, there is a tendency to organize data at its original storage location, thus saving both time and money by not moving around large volumes of data. The infrastructure required for organizing big data must be able to process and manipulate data in the original storage location; support very high throughput (often in batch) to deal with large data processing steps; and handle a large variety of data formats, from unstructured to structured.

  • This year, Congress, the Administration, and financial regulators have taken significant measures to address some of the most obvious inadequacies in our consumer protection framework. But these steps have focused on just two, albeit very important, product markets – credit cards and mortgages. We need comprehensive reform. For that reason, we propose the creation of a single regulatory agency, a Consumer Financial Protection Agency (CFPA), with the authority and accountability to make sure that consumer protection regulations are written fairly and enforced vigorously.

  • The website for Cable News 14 in North Carolina allowed registered users to submit weather related announcements for T.V., in order to alert local residents of school or business closures.

Afterward, users are free to edit the content to reflect any changes in status.

  • We found that NOP officials did not assemble a peer review panel to annually evaluate their accreditation procedures. NOP regulations require the AMS Administrator to establish a peer review panel pursuant to the Federal Advisory Committee Act8 (FACA) to complete this evaluation. NOP officials attributed this inaction to budget constraints and the difficulties in forming a panel each year. NOP officials did not request a waiver from the Administrator or additional funding to form a panel.

  • In the long link connecting Terminal 1 and Terminal 2, Norwegian painter Frans Widerberg and Danish glass artist Per Steen Hebsgaard have created an equestrian statue in glass and a glass frieze divided into three sections facing the apron outside. The glass sculpture, in natural size, is the first of its kind in the world. The glass frieze, entitled Arcadia, shows flying people, horses and centaurs in beautiful colour combinations, emphasised by the natural light that pours in through the south-facing facade, creating images of the motifs on the polished marble floor....

  • The physical and functional properties of the means are conditioning the ways in which the information may be articulated. Therefore, factors such as economy and access to raw materials play an important role in determining the level of cognitive complexity of a society. According to Lave (1988: 1), cognition is distributed, i.e., “stretched over, not divided among—mind, body, activity, and culturally organized settings (which include other actors).

  • As a reaction to this complexity, we designed a new abstraction that allows us to express the simple computa- tions we were trying to perform but hides the messy de- tails of parallelization, fault-tolerance, data distribution and load balancing in a library. Our abstraction is in- spired by the map and reduce primitives present in Lisp and many other functional languages.

  • A gate valve is a linear motion valve used to start or stop fluid flow; however, it does not regulate or throttle flow. The name gate is derived from the appearance of the disk in the flow stream. Figure 4 illustrates a gate valve. The disk of a gate valve is completely removed from the flow stream when the valve is fully open. This characteristic offers virtually no resistance to flow when the valve is open. Hence, there is little pressure drop across an open gate valve. When the valve is fully closed, a disk-to-seal ring contact surface exists for 360°, and good sealing is...

  • As mentioned earlier, since carbon monoxide is a major contributor to smog formation, and since oxygenated fuels reduce carbon monoxide emissions, many metropolitan areas are now required by federal law to sell oxygenate-rich or ‘reformulated’ gasoline. At the time of this writing, the EPA has embarked on the next phase of combatting smog (see, for example, “Smog Alert: The EPA proposes tough new clean-air standards,” Time of 12/9/96.
