Exploring performance attribution

Substantial deficits in the quality of health care and persistent and unsustainable growth in health care spending have led to calls for reform of the Medicare system, including such steps as increasing performance accountability and making changes in payment policies (IOM, 2001; IOM 2006).  Existing Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) performance measurement and payment policies focus on individual provider silos (e.g., provider types and settings of care).  The separate performance measurement and payment systems for each provider type and setting are not aligned around or reflective of the continuum ...
Tips For Exploring Canada By Boat | Everything You Need To Know ...
Canada is home to beautiful oceans, lakes, and rivers that make for wonderful boating excursions. In Canada, before you board any recreational watercraft that has a motor, including a motor boat, and explore the diverse and stunning country, you are required to have a Operator Card for Pleasure Crafts .

You can acquire a Pleasure Craft Operator Card by successfully passing a multiple choice exam which is given out by a private government ... market research, surveys and trends
open...: Exploring Entitlement Economics
I've often been paid for programming, but I've been paid directly for the hours I spent programming. I never even considered it reasonable to be paid again for programming I did in the past. How is that fair, just, or quite frankly, even necessary? If I get a job building a house, I can't get paid every day someone uses that house. Indeed, even if I built the house, I shouldn't get a royalty paid every time the house is resold to a new owner. Why should software work any differently? Indeed, there's even an argument that software, since it's so much more trivial to copy than a house, should be ... market research, surveys and trends

Australian Gold Companies to Command more ReSPecT
other asset classes by a significant margin with a 49 percent price increase.  Over the last year, the precious metals sector and specifically many gold mining companies have demonstrated significantly strong performance relative to overall global equity markets.  Attribution analysis over the previous 12 months, however, indicates that due to the currency appreciation in Canada and Australia, global gold stocks have actually underperformed relative to the physical gold price in US dollars, excluding US index gold stocks. A significant country discount could certainly have been applied to Australian gold miners, developers, and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What does divine revelation mean to you?
From Wikipedia: In casual usage, ‘miracle’ may also refer to any statistically unlikely but beneficial event, such as the survival of a natural disaster or even which regarded as ‘wonderful’ regardless of its likelihood, such as birth. Other miracles might be: survival of a terminal illness, escaping a life threatening situation or ‘beating the odds.’ The metaphorical interpretation is consistent with deism, a religious and philosophical belief that a supreme being created the universe, and that this (and religious truth in general) can be determined using reason and observation of the natural ...
