Was There A “Small-Bank” Anomaly In The Great Crisis Of 2007-09?, Paola Bongini, Giovanni Ferri, Punziana Lacitignola 2009 University of Milan-Bicocca

Was There A “Small-Bank” Anomaly In The Great Crisis Of 2007-09?, Paola Bongini, Giovanni Ferri, Punziana Lacitignola

Paola Bongini

Drawing on a large set of listed banks from Europe, the US and Japan we start noticing that smaller-sized banks suffered less than larger banks in conjunction with the unfolding of the Great Crisis of 2007-09. Was this a small-bank anomaly analogous to the classic small firm effect? We conjecture that what seems to be a small bank anomaly might, in fact, signal a generalized market reassessment of the banking business model and tested whether stock markets penalized less the banks that kept more rooted to the traditional “originate-to-hold” (OTH) model while forgoing the opportunities disclosed by the “originate-to-distribute” (OTD ...

Factors Behind Hiv Testing Practices Among Canadian Aboriginal Peoples Living Off-Reserve, Treena Orchard, C. Mcinnes, K. Fernandes, M. Clement, M. Gilbert, V. Lima, J. Montaner, R. Hogg

Dr. Treena Orchard

The objective of this study was to examine factors associated with HIV testing among Aboriginal peoples in Canada who live off-reserve. Data were drawn for individuals aged 15–44 from the Aboriginal Peoples Survey (2001), which represents a weighed sample of 520,493 Aboriginal men and women living off-reserve. Bivariable analysis and logistic regression were used to identify factors associated with individuals who had received an HIV test within the past year. In adjusted multivariable analysis, female gender, younger age, unemployment, contact with a family doctor or traditional healer within the past year, and “good” or “fair/poor” self-rated health ...

Law In The Shadow Of Bargaining: The Feedback Effect Of Civil Settlements, Ben Depoorter 2009 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Law In The Shadow Of Bargaining: The Feedback Effect Of Civil Settlements, Ben Depoorter

Ben Depoorter

Lawmakers, courts, and legal scholars often express concern that settlement agreements withhold important information from the public. This Essay identifies, to the contrary, problematic issues involving the availability of information on non-representative settlements. The theoretical and empirical evidence presented in this Essay demonstrates that, despite the widespread use of nondisclosure agreements, information on settlements is distributed both inside and outside legal communities, reaching actors through various channels including the oral culture in legal communities, specialized reporters, professional interest organizations, and media coverage. Moreover, information on private settlement agreements circulates more widely if the agreed compensation in a given settlement exceeds ...

Dariusz Woźniak

The main goal of this paper is to compare the 16 regional operational programmes (ROPs) for years 2007-2013. The fundamental criterion of the comparison is the allocation of ROPs’ funds (financed by the European Regional Development Fund) for the priority themes, listed in the Commission Regulation (EC) No 1828/2006 of 8 December 2006. The structure is as follows. In the first part the general characteristic of ROPs is presented. The differences and similarities of ROPs are described in the second section. The last part consists of conclusions.

Evaluatie Van Het Nieuwe Werkervaringsprogramma. Een Analyse Van De Organisatie En Financiële Positie Van De Leerwerkbedrijven, Peter De Cuyper, Laura Jacobs, Wim Van Opstal

Wim Van Opstal

Werkervaring is al vele jaren een belangrijk instrument voor de integratie van langdurig werkzoekenden op de arbeidsmarkt. Deze maatregel kreeg tot voor kort vorm in het Werkervaringsplan-plus of WEP+. Op 1 januari 2009 trad een nieuw kader voor werkervaring in werking, waarmee een einde kwam aan meer dan tien jaar WEP+. Het nieuwe werkervaringsprogramma heeft als belangrijkste doelstelling een evenwaardige begeleiding voor elke WEP-plus werknemer te realiseren, ongeacht de plaats waar de werkervaring doorgaat. Daarnaast wordt de focus sterker op uitstroom naar het Normaal Economisch Circuit (NEC) gelegd. Om bovenstaande doelstellingen te bereiken, werden inhoudelijke, organisatorische en financiële wijzigingen aangebracht ...

Response To Tesol's Position Statement On The Linguistic Rights Of Deaf Students, Sarah Compton

Sarah Compton

This piece responds to TESOL's position statement on the linguistic rights of deaf students to develop proficiency in both native signed and spoken languages. The statement lays a foundation upon which both English language teaching professionals and deaf education practitioners can build a partnership to advocate for deaf students’ linguistic rights and promote multilingual education programs for deaf students and all learners of English.

The Media And The Far Right In Western Europe: Playing The Nationalist Card, New York: Cambridge University Press., Antonis Ellinas 2009 College of the Holy Cross

The Media And The Far Right In Western Europe: Playing The Nationalist Card, New York: Cambridge University Press., Antonis Ellinas

Antonis A. Ellinas

This book examines the fascinating interplay of party and media behavior to explain one of the most important phenomena in Western Europe: the rise of far-right parties. To account for the divergent electoral fortunes of these parties, the book examines how political parties and the mass media have dealt with growing public concerns over national identity. Mainstream politicians chose to “play the nationalist card,” creating opportunities for the entry of far-right parties into the political system. In some cases, the media gave outsized exposure to such parties, allowing them to capitalize on these opportunities; in other cases, they ignored them ...


Mortality In India In Last Two Decades: Has Child Mortality Really Increased?, Nandita Saikia, Abhishek Singh, Faujdar Ram 2009 International Institute for Population Sciences

Mortality In India In Last Two Decades: Has Child Mortality Really Increased?, Nandita Saikia, Abhishek Singh, Faujdar Ram

Abhishek Singh

The trend in mortality from the Sample Registration System data shows a slowdown in improvements, particularly since the mid-1990s. According to official life tables constructed by the Registrar General, there is a stagnating trend in infant mortality and an increasing trend in female child mortality for India. The ratio of child mortality rates to infant mortality rates obtained from the official life tables for the recent period does not follow any of the model life table patterns, which raises questions about the reliability of these rates. Using age-specific death rates from the srs, new life tables constructed for the most ...
