Economics

Thank you very much Christine. Thank you very much for this opportunity. I have some slides that I might show at the end, but I prefer to try to present to you a model of a city, that perhaps does not yet exist, but that we should be trying to create, at least as a new type of model. City?s creation is the most important thing that can happen at this moment in our lives. Type of cities that we build is going to determine the quality of life and even economic development ...

It has become customary to refer to a pharmacopoeia as the pharmacist's Bible . Like most nletaphorical descriptions, this expresses only a half-truth. While the book of books which we call the Bible breathes eternity that may be differently interpreted but cannot be changed, the very usefulness of the pharmacopoeia is determined by the periodical changes it has to undergo to keep pace with the latest progress in the sciences on which it is based.

The Committee evaluated a group of nine epoxide flavouring agents, including ethyl methylphenylglycidate (No. 1577) (Table 1). The evaluations were conducted according to the Procedure for the Safety Evaluation of Flavouring Agents (see Figure 1, p. 170). The Committee previously evaluated two members of the group: ethyl 3-phenylglycidate (No. 1576) was evaluated at the twenty-fifth meeting (Annex 1, reference 56), when no AD1 was assigned; ethyl methylphenyl-glycidate (...

1. INTRODUCTION The governing bodies of WHO and its Advisory Committee on Medical Research, assisted by advisory scientific groups, have explored ways and means by which WHO can contribute to the promotion of the therapeutic safety of drugs. As a result, the World Health Assembly decided, inter alia, that generally acceptable principles and requirements for the evaluation of the safety and efficacy of drugs should be formulated under the authority of WHO. The WHO Symposi...

Environmental Enrichment for Primates in Laboratories : Volume 5, ...

By: H. M. Buchanan-smith

Description: Behaviour and Evolution Research Group, Psychology, School of Natural Sciences, University of Stirling, Stirling FK9 4LA, Scotland. Environmental enrichment is a critical component of Refinement, one of the 3Rs underlying humane experimentation on animals. In this paper I discuss why primates housed in laboratories, which often have constraints of space and study protocols, are a special case for enrichment. I outline a framework for categorising the dif...

Description: Arctic Environment Research Center, National Institute of Polar Research, 10-3 Midori-cho, Tachikawa, Tokyo 190-8518, Japan. To evaluate the effect of atmospheric turbulence on a marine ecosystem, high-frequency samplings (two to four times per day) of a mesozooplankton community and the gut pigment of dominant copepods were performed at a fixed station in the Chukchi Sea from 10 to 25 September 2013. During the study period, a strong wind event (SWE) wa...

Description: National Oceanography Centre, University of Southampton, Waterfront Campus, European Way, Southampton SO14 3ZH, UK. Modelling marine ecosystems requires insight and judgement when it comes to deciding upon appropriate model structure, equations and parameterisation. Many processes are relatively poorly understood and tough decisions must be made as to how to mathematically simplify the real world. Here, we present an efficient plankton modelling testbed,...

Exponential family statistical distributions, including the well-known normal, binomial, Poisson, and exponential distributions, are overwhelmingly used in data analysis. In the presence of covariates, an exponential family distributional assumption for the response random variables results in a generalized linear model. However, it is rarely ensured that the parameters of the assumed distributions are stable t...

By: E. Crisafi; F. Raffa; F. Decembrini; F. Azzaro

Description: Institute for Coastal Marine Environment, CNR, Sp. S. Raineri, 86 – 98122 Messina, Italy. In the Straits of Messina, large gradients of tidal displacements, as well as the topographic constrictions, determine the upwelling of deeper waters in the surface layer. This work describes the seasonal variability in the surface distribution of phytoplankton biomass depending on the upwelling phenomena. Temperature, salinity, nitrates and phytoplankton fluorescen...
