Government has made life more difficult for America's doctors with laws that have reduced Medicare spending by hundreds of billions of dollars without taking action to reduce demand for services. The federal government pays for approximately 45 of all health care in the United States (14). Therefore, these actions have significant direct impact, and, in addition, reset the bar for the rest of the health care marketplace.
Biophotonics offers tremendous opportunities for both biotechnology development and fundamental research. From a technological perspective, biophotonics, as described above, integrates four major technologies lasers, photonics, nanotechnology, and biotechnology. These technologies have already established themselves in the global marketplace, collectively generating hundreds of billions of dollars per year. Biophotonics also impacts a wide range of industries including biotechnology companies, health care organizations (hospitals, clinics, and medical diagnostic laboratories), medical instrument suppliers, and pharmaceutical manufacturers, as well as those dealing with information technology and optical telecommunication. In the future, biophotonics will have a major impact both in generating new technologies and in offering huge commercial rewards worldwide.
Most important, Ava Helen spurred his thinking about the issues of the day. She came from a politically active, left-wing family. Like Shaw, she was attracted to a political system called socialism. Socialists believed that the fairest society was not one in which a few wealthy people owned the means of making and distributing goods the system in place in the United States and many other nations but one in which all the people, rich and poor, shared ownership of the factories and railroads, shipping lines and newspapers. Ava Helen grew up amid long discussions about Caltech had Arthur Amos Noyes, an internationally known chemical theorist, a money-making inventor, the author of widely used textbooks, and a great teacher. Noyes had become something of a legend by transforming the chemistry department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology into the envy of the world. He then had been lured to Caltech by the offer of a great deal of money, a new laboratory building, and a free hand...
Of the two human foodborne illnesses caused by this bacterium, C. perfringens type A food poisoning is by far more common, particularly in industrialized countries. The latest statistics compiled by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate that C. perfringens type A food poisoning currently ranks as the third most commonly reported foodborne illness in the United States (6). Estimates indicate that more than 250,000 Americans become sickened with this illness each year, resulting in approximately 10 deaths and economic losses exceeding 120 million dollars (7,8).
A fully equipped radiology suite represents an investment of several million dollars in equipment and construction costs. Such equipment is not easily relocated. Understandably, such tenants want very specific information on the other tenants in the building before committing to a lease.
What makes the biotechnology industry unique, especially in the bio-pharmaceutical sector, is the amount of funding required to start a biotech company and even the greater subsequent funding required to sustain the growth of the company. A typical biopharmaceutical company requires about 2-3 million dollars in its first two years and between 5-10 million dollars in its second two years. After this period funding of up to 600 million dollars may be required to progress a new drug through clinical trials and finally to market release. Venture capital (VC) funding is therefore an important driver of the biotechnology industry.
Intellectual property as an intellectual asset is a line item on the NBF's financial statements. As such those undertaking a management role will be concerned to ensure that this asset improves in value rather than diminishes. It is more likely to be the case when a professional manager is brought into the company once it has grown to sufficient size, that control of IP will become more of an issue. For professional managers, disclosure of any information on the intellectual property assets of the company will impact on the company's performance and needs to be prevented. Hence the proliferation of confidentiality disclosure agreements (CDAs) and non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), in the industry. Some would see these as a necessity, others as a necessary evil and still others as an unnecessary evil. The differing perspectives are often based upon the role an individual plays within the company. For scientists, collaboration, knowledge sharing, conference attendance and idea generation...
If supposedly expensive enhancement-techniques become available only to wealthy people, the effect could be a significant distortion in the rules and premises of fair competition in our societies, leading to far greater differences in the distribution of wealth, social status, and fulfillment in life.
Using the extremes as an example, it is easy to see the limits of experience rating in the context of medical malpractice insurance. A physician with no claims could argue that his or her premium should be close to zero. On the other hand, following a single million-dollar claim, the physician's rate the following year could be many hundreds of thousands of dollars. Given the facts above, this would be illogical as well as unfair and would undermine the very notion of insurance. Therefore, in most cases the premium burden is evenly divided among physician groups with only modest experience-based discounts or surcharges actuarially creditable.
This fact will not necessarily generalize to the other neurotransmitter systems, such as the dopaminergic system, for the simple reason that in the case of dopamine most of the reuptake occurs on the presynaptic side of the dopamine neuron via the dopamine transporter (DAT) protein. This system is reviewed by Cooper et al. 35 . Second, dopamine synthesis and uptake are, to a large degree, controlled by presynaptic D2 autoreceptors that are more sensitive than postsynaptic dopamine receptors to the effects of dopamine or apomorphine. These data seem to suggest that the metabolic changes would be mediated via the presynaptic dopamine neurons. It was with this thought in mind that we investigated this hypothesis using unilateral lesioning of the nigrostriatal dopamine tracts using 6-hydroxydopamine 5 . These experiments showed that the hemodynamic changes induced by either amphetamine or (CFT) were ablated by the presynaptic lesioning, and this was consistent with PET data obtained in...
Obesity is a major health issue in the United States. People spend billions of dollars every year on schemes to lose weight, but the problem still increases. A simple rule take in fewer calories than your body burns, but maintain a balanced diet should solve the problem, but it doesn't. Why As we noted at the beginning of this chapter, social and lifestyle factors play a major role in obesity, but these factors play out against a genetic and regulatory background.
Try to figure out how to increase the number of insects that help humans. Others try to figure out how insects communicate, how their senses work, or how to use insects to solve human problems. Although humans spend billions of dollars every year on insects, you don't need a lot of money to be a good entomologist.You can find insects wherever you are, and the only equipment you really need is a pencil and a journal.
Beauty institutes have understood this for a long time and enthusiastically apply it. Do we not read in women's magazines ladies have beautiful breasts, a flat stomach and good legs, but are they also firm The firmness and elasticity of tissue are fundamental qualities of a child's skin and a part of their beauty. Beauty is costly. It is easy for wealthy people to get jewelry and beauty accessories, but these are more difficult to acquire without money. This is one explanation of the popularity of aesthetic medicine and surgery among the less well-off and among those who cannot please merely with their natural gifts or with the artificial resources of the wealthy. As they are only able to please with their body, the less wealthy will more pay readily for an operation to remove acquired or existing supposed defects so that they can continue to be admired. attention to countries in need, to collect donations, and to fight poverty and suffering. A begging child will always get more money...
The next most extensive use of wood is for pulp, which among other things is converted by various processes to paper, synthetic fibers, plastics, and linoleum. In recent years, it has been added as a filler to commercial ice cream and bread. Some hardwoods are treated chemically or heated under controlled conditions to yield a number of chemicals, such as wood alcohol and acetic acid, but other sources of these products are now usually considered more economical. Charcoal, excelsior, cooperage (kegs, casks, and barrels), railroad ties, boxes and crates, musical instruments, bowling pins, tool handles, pilings, cellophane, photographic film, and Christmas trees are but a few of the additional wood products worth billions of dollars annually on the world market (see Fig. 6.16).
For instance, if an insurance company has to decide how to calculate an insurance premium to cover a pharmaceutical company that is planning to introduce a new anti-cancer drug, with the possibility of toxic side-effects not yet known for the population at large, the insurance company can provide a basic set of rules, with hypothetical probabilities. So, for example, the following rules may describe one scenario. 'If the insurance company sets the premium at 50 million dollars a year the drug will be released. If the anti-cancer drug is released, it may cure the cancer. If the drug is released and given to a patient, the patient may die. If a patient dies after receiving the drug, there may be a claim made against the drug company by the patient's relatives. If a claim is made against the drug company, the insurance company may have to pay out more than a million dollars'. This belief network is represented in Figure 4.3. The nodes and links represent rule-based relationships between...
Both crabs and lobsters are important food for humans as well. Crabs are caught in traps or by crab dredges. The most highly prized are soft-shelled crabs, which are really the ordinary species of crabs that are caught just after molting and before they have had time to secrete a new shell. Both American and European lobsters are the centers of a fisheries industry measured in the billions of dollars annually. They are caught in baited lobster pots. Coastal pollution and over-fishing coupled with an apparent die-off of the American lobster population in the Northeast has spawned millions of federal dollars in research to determine causes and provide restoration protocols. With the demise of the American lobster popula
Nematodes are most notable for the huge economic impact they have as crop and animal pests. Plant parasitic nematodes cause billions of dollars in agricultural losses annually. Several species of nematodes are also human parasites. Nematode parasites and their hosts may have simple associations, in which the nematode uses the host as a means of transport from one food source to another, or more complex associations, in which the
As soon as a way is found to establish individual differences between people, all sorts of correlations between the test scores and other variables can be computed. So, we can investigate whether people with higher intelligence test scores, when compared with people who obtain lower test scores, are more successful on a job whether they make more money, vote differently, or have a higher life-expectancy. We can look into differences in intelligence test scores as a function of background variables like sex, race, or socio-economic status. We can do research into the association between intelligence test scores and neural speed, reaction time, or the amount of grey matter inside the skull. We find a diverse array of associations and mean differences. Some are large and stable, others small and difficult to replicate. And so the mechanism of science has been set in motion. Under which conditions, precisely, do certain effects occur Which variables mediate or moderate relations between...
