WHAT IS THE IMPACT OF DUPLICATE COVERAGE ON THE DEMAND FOR HEALTH CARE IN GERMANY? - Mh Vargas; M Elhewaihi; M. H. Vargas; M. Elhewaihi
Abstract. Duplicate coverage involves those individuals who hold public health insurance, and purchase additional private coverage. Using data from the German Institute for Economic Research, we try to investigate the impact of duplicate coverage on the demand for healthcare (measured in number of visits to doctors). Given the simultaneity of the choices to take out additional private health insurance coverage, we estimate a negative binomial model to measure this impact. We also estimate a a Full Information Maximun Loglike-lihood (FIML), known as Endogenous Switching Poisson Count Model and we compare these results with the standard maximum log likelihood (ML) estima-tors...
A Cross-Cultural Comparison of Value Systems - Sarath A. Nonis; Charles W. Ford
Failure to account for the effects of differences in consumers ' cultural values oil decision-making will hinder a marketer's efforts to expand internationally. Using samples of Middle-eastern and U.S. consumers, the study found cultural values and consumer ethical beliefs to be significantly different between the two groups.
THE POTENTIAL OF GIS ANALYSES IN FARMING SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT THE CASE OF AL FARIA’A BASIN- WESTERN OF THE JORDAN VALLEY - Thameen Hijawi
With the increasing population in Palestine, demand for agriculture resources has increased promoting farming system (land use) changes whereas water resources are becoming scarce. Current and accurate land use / land cover inventories are essential information for studying and monitoring farming systems and for make sound plans for the future. This paper presents GIS as a method using land use components into analysis the farming system development. Geographical information system (GIS) Land sat TM Thematic Mapper data was used as a tool to study the farming system in Al Faria’a basin- Western of the Jordan valley, Palestine. To derive the...

concerning modifiable risk factors for recurrent falls in elderly patients who experienced fall. Methods: This study in patients 65 years or older who experienced fall was performed at the accident and emergency department of a tertiary university hospital in the Netherlands. The construct validity was determined in 200 patients and 100 matched controls. The test-retest reliability was determined in 27 patients who answered the CTI twice. The clinical validity was determined in 111 high-risk patients who visited the Fall Prevention Clinic (FPC). The risk factors were as follows: medication, balance and mobility, fear of falling, orthostatic hypotension, mood, high risk...
2008): "Adverse Selection in Competitive Search Equilibrium", Working paper - Veronica Guerrieri; Robert Shimer; Randall Wright
We extend the notion of competitive search equilibrium to an environment with adverse selection. Uninformed principals post contracts to attract informed agents. Agents observe the contracts and apply for one, trading off the probability of matching with a principal against the terms of trade offered by the contract. We characterize equilibria as the solution to a constrained optimization problem and show that in equilibrium principals offers separating contracts to attract different types of agents. We then present a set of examples, including a workplace rat race, insurance against layoff risk, and lemons in asset markets, to illustrate the usefulness of...
PV VILLAGE POWER SUPPLY SYSTEMS IN CHINA- RESULTS FROM A TECHNICAL MONITORING CAMPAIGN
ABSTRACT: China has the largest program world wide for village electrification with remote systems based on renewable energies. 721 PV hybrid systems have been built by the end of 2005 in the western provinces under the Chinese National Township Program. All components came from Chinese manufacturers. Another 124 villages were electrified with co-financing of the German KfW using in part components from German suppliers. The German GTZ supports the Chinese efforts through training programs for the trainers of system operators and through technical monitoring of selected villages. Twelve village systems in Qinghai were equipped with data logging equipment which registers...

Acyclic Subgraph based Descriptor Spaces for Chemical Compound Retrieval and Classification∗ - Nikil Wale; George Karypis
In recent years the development of computational techniques that build models to correctly assign chemical compounds to various classes or to retrieve potential drug-like compounds has been an active area of research. These techniques are used extensively at various phases during the drug development process. Many of the best-performing techniques for these tasks, utilize a descriptor-based representation of the compound that captures various aspects of the underlying molecular graph’s topology. In this paper we in-troduce and describe algorithms for efficiently generating a new set of descriptors that are derived from all connected acyclic fragments present in the molecular graphs. In...

ORIGINAL ARTICLE - Ruz Æ Marı́a; Bruce Milliken
Abstract Orienting attention exogenously to a location can have two different consequences on processing subsequent stimuli appearing at that location: positive (facilitation) at short intervals and negative (inhibition of return) at long ones. In the present experiments, we manipulated the frequency of targets and responses associated with them. Results showed that, even at long SOAs, where IOR is usually observed, facilitation was observed for infrequent targets at the same time that IOR was measured for frequent targets. These results are difficult to explain on the basis of either task set mod-ulation of attentional capture or task set modulation of subsequent...

Presence of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus in respiratory cultures from cystic fibrosis patients is associated with lower lung function. Pediatr. Pulmonol - Marina Morgan
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is increasing worldwide. Occasionally, animals are colonized or infected incidentally with human strains. Recently, however, new strains of MRSA emerging from within the animal kingdom, particularly in pigs, are causing human infection. MRSA has been reported in species as diverse as companion animals, horses and pigs, through to chin-chillas, bats and parrots. In contrast, whereas strains of community-associated MRSA, the majority of which carry genes encoding Panton–Valentine leucocidin, are spreading rapidly in human popu-lations, only sporadic cases have been reported in animals to date. Although MRSA has been found in some meat products, the implications for...
