The study was conducted among 258 healthy men with age group of 40-49, randomly selected from a population. All of the participant undergo overnight polysomnography and electron-beam computed tomography to measure their apnea�Vhypopnea index (AHI) and degree of CAC to get the baseline of the participants before conducting the experiment. Results from the experiment proved that obesity was associated with obstructive sleep apnea as participants who recorded a high reading during the AHI test showed weight gain as compared to participants with low reading of AHI.

The total amount of aggregate claim in year t can be expressed as: Where N(t) = the number of claims at time t X(i,t) = the amount claimed by the ith claim at time t Each X(i,t) are independent log-normal variables with mean 20000 and variance 20000. Based on this data, the parameters of X(i,t) can be obtained which are ? = 9.903462553 and ? = (7.070979426 ? 10-3) 1 N(t) is distributed following a Poisson distribution with ? = 4.5. With the average number of claims given as 4.5 and expected amount of claim is 20000, so the analytical result of the expected aggregate claim is $90 000.2 However, in order to develop a more realistic approach, Microsoft Excel program is used to simulate 7000 random events.

However, it is possible to pinpoint when the first online dating service was launched. Match.com, which began in April 1995, "is considered a pioneer in bringing online dating into the mainstream" ("History of Online Dating" n. p.). Soon, other dating sites opened, and the phenomenon of online dating started growing in popularity. As early as 1996, articles about happy couples that had met online began to appear in popular magazines (Gwinnell xv-xvi). Despite such articles, there was a bit of a stigma to using online dating services during the early period of their development.

She uses the ten feet as an illustration that the family may be in a grave. Furthermore, Flannary goes into vivid details when she talks about the trees she considers them to be "tall, dark, deep" suggesting that this is where the family might be taken and murdered. As the reader continues on he or she may notice that, "Behind them the line of woods gaped like a dark open mouth" (388). What Flannary is trying to suggest here is that the family is headed into the woods to be consumed or killed by "The Misfits" accomplices.

Since then lots of other books as children's fantasies are published: Hans Christian Anderson's "The Snow Queen", and Carlo Collodi's Pinocchio. Therefore, the children's literature has proven to be an enduring influence on adult fantasy (17). The first step for entering the territory of fantasy is to find out its definition.To clarify which kind of work can be called a fantasy has been always the matter of argument and challenge. The important point is to decide where the border between fantasy and reality should be drawn.

Such a Western lens first came into being through colonisation, with the complete domination of one culture over another. Later, in the early Postcolonial period, both the Governments and tourist trade exacerbated this state of flux. With the unfortunate need for steady income from a wealthy source, countries started plying the world market with heavily idealised pictures of sandy beaches and picturesque holiday resorts, 'such activity is given the name of tourism'.3 However, those doing this were those who could afford it rather than the average person: 'The national middle class discovers its historic mission: that of intermediary'.4 Essentially becoming 'middle men' in the prostitution of their own country, the wealthy sought to exploit not only the land that sustained them but also their poorer fellow countrymen.

Many people who are opposed to prostitution are very bias, describing the horrors of violence by men who "express pure hatred for the female body" who believe prostitution is "too patriarchal to be tolerated."

Essential oils are from natural sources and may be able to be incorporated into treatments of these keratophillic fungi. Objectives Identify essential oils which are used in dermatological conditions. Establish the individual components of some of these essential oils with high anti fungal activity. Show anti fungal activity of the separate individual components. Also I will demonstrate other essential oils containing similar components. Overview Dermatophytosis (tinea) infections are caused by dermatophytes, a group of fungi which invade and grow in dead keratin. Keratin is essential for the growth of these fungal organisms. These superficial fungal infections usually affect the skin, nails and hair.

Compare, contrast, and where possible synthesise, two major psychological approaches to understanding the core deficits of autism.
However, two psychological models in particular have stimulated a considerable degree of interest over the last decade. These encompass the "theory-of-mind" deficit and the executive dysfunction hypothesis. Both models recognise that the disorder is not directly caused by a cognitive deficit and appreciate the overwhelming evidence of an organic cause (Coleman & Gillberg, 1985; Schopler & Mesibov, 1987; Gillberg, 1991) but are equally aware that a cognitive deficit may drive a number of developmental conditions resulting in specific symptoms of the disorder. Currently, the relationship between the theory of mind and executive function deficit has not been clearly established.

Recent brain imaging research has found significant abnormalities in the lobes of the brain, specifically in the location of the brain where attention is regulated (Cooper and O'Regan, 2001). Additional studies have demonstrated insufficient neurotransmitter production (Train, 1996; Levy and Swanson, 2001). These neurotransmitters are responsible for transmitting information among various parts of the brain and employ the role of regulating impulse control, concentration and motor regulation. This biological-based theory has much supporting evidence since the primary deficits of the disorder are inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity (Safren et al., 2004).

Also in this essay, I would look at "Everyday life" as the dull routine, ongoing go-to- work, pay the bills home trudge of existence, it can be conceived as a never ending cultural work through which individuals constantly produce the meanings, structure and social organization of their worlds as well as social identities and those of people they interact with or talk about (Letizia quoted by Miles, 1988). I will then evaluate the proposition that Information Technology has become part and parcel of our every waking life, drawing on theorists such as Herring, Lyon, Miles and Webster, focusing on close readings of information society and their relation to broader ideological discourse of everyday live.

Bernard said, that 'not by the sword of the executioner, but by bitter sorrow of heart'" (St. Alphonsus, 1954 pg 463 Victories of Martyrs). Her martyrdom was not only sufficient to cause her death once, but thousands of times. That is why, Mary is known as the Queen of Martyrs, not only because she suffered martyrdom but because her martyrdom surpassed all others. Marys entire life was comparable to a prolonged death in which she suffered daily. As mentioned in the Victories of Martyrs, St.

With his concept of cross-cultural dimensions Hofstede (2001 cited Steers and Nardon, 2006) gives a framework for understanding the impact of culture on values. Because of focus of this research out of the five dimensions Individualism-Collectivism, Power Distance, Uncertainty Avoidance, Masculinity and Femininity and Confucian Dynamism, just the first two shall be explained in relation to work values and differences shall be explained on the basis of functions of management. According to Tung (1999, p.62), "the cultural values that are typical of a particular society can influence what is effective in terms of management process".

theoretical progress by a 'virtus dormitiva'; the overemphasis of an observed aspect of behaviour which is then regarded as the essence of the paradigm (Van der Heijden & Bem, 2002). Fodor (2000) himself explained that modularity may explain little about central and higher processes of the mind (e.g., thinking, reasoning, reading, writing, etc.) and may only apply to peripheral systems. There has been a paradigm shift towards modularity in terms of function, rather than strict automaticity and encapsulation. The concept of modularity has been hugely important, so much so that it has led to the Massive Modularity Theory.
