"XBRL is already widely adopted globally for ...
There is considerable confusion in both Chinese and foreign sources over definitions of urban places and hence considerable variation in estimates of China's urban population (see Migration in China ). The problem of determining the size of the urban population reflects inconsistent and changing administrative categories; the distinction between rural and urban household registry and between categories of settlements; the practice of placing suburban or rural districts under the administration of municipal governments; and the differences in the status accorded to small towns. In sociological terms, urban refers to an area ...

Freaky Friday Potpourri: The Euronary Tract Infection | Business ...
I don't know if folks follow technical analysis because it works or if technical analysis works because people follow it, but for purposes of this discussion, it's a moot point. As Minyans know, I set my stop on this latest iteration of my short side stab on the other side of S&P 1080 (1085, to be exact, drawn with a crayon rather than a pencil). The tape kissed double secret resistance during Thursday's run and retreated like a French sentry in the face of danger. News doesn't make markets; markets make news, and that's again playing out as we ready ourselves for well-deserved three-day respite. China ... market research, surveys and trends

is a quote we received to test ONE telescope product under the CPSIA. The cost of the testing is a mere $24,050 for this single item. The average annual sales of this item are approximately $32,000 over the past two years. Needless to say, we cannot afford to spend $24,050 to test this (or any) item. I presume that Congress intended this result and wants us to stop selling telescopes to keep everyone safe. I guess kids can see the planets by squinting from now on. Thanks, Congress! This absurd result is increasingly common under the destructive and poorly-conceived CPSIA. It is not surprising to me that a law born out of anger ... market research, surveys and trends

How War Amplified Federal Power in the Twentieth Century ...
After surveying the Western world in the past six centuries, Bruce Porter concluded: “a government at war is a juggernaut of centralization determined to crush any internal opposition that impedes the mobilization of militarily vital resources. This centralizing tendency of war has made the rise of the state throughout much of history a disaster for human liberty and rights.” 1 As a cause of the development of big government in the United States, however, war seldom receives its due. World War I Despite expansion during Woodrow Wilson’s first term as president, the federal government on the eve of World War I ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Real New Deal - John V. C. Nye - The American Interest Magazine
he great Crash of October 1929 did not spell the long-heralded end of Capitalism. Nor, for that matter, did the yawning, decade-long Great Depression, any more than the War to End All Wars (a.k.a. World War I) ended European Civilization. Endism, especially when attached to the sort of nouns we were once prone to capitalize, can become a bad habit when used as anything more than a literary device to call attention to events worthy of it. The Great Depression was certainly worthy of its capital letters; even if nothing exactly ended, plenty changed. But what? And with what, if any relevance for present circumstances?

Electronic Commerce and the Implications for Market Structure
In recent years, it has been widely stated that electronic commerce will signify the dawn of a friction-free market (Gates, 1995). Structural changes in markets, such as disintermediation, would occur due to the impact of electronic trade and electronic information exchange. As argued by Sarkar, Butler and Steinfield (1995), these statements are oversimplified and exaggerated, because different outcomes are possible, such as cybermediation and re-intermediation. In order to clarify the issues concerning the implications of e-commerce for market ...

1. Make sure your site doesn't look cheap - that speaks poorly to the credibility of your site - users don't want to do business with any company that doesn't look like they are serious/stable. 2.
