This paper proposes two hypotheses that urban housing prices inhibit urban labor mobility and urban high-tech industry development by introducing the extended CP model of housing prices. On this basis, using the data of the 9-city data of the Pearl River Delta from 2001 to 2015 to conduct empirical analysis and testing through the fixed-effects model, it is found that the increase of relative housing prices in cities will promote urban labor inflows and inhibit the development of urban high-tech industries. Factors such as education level, medical level, and government budget expenditure will, to a certain extent, strengthen the role of relative housing prices in promoting labor inflows and weaken the inhibition of urban housing prices on high-tech industries.

As a part-time cynical marketer, I have ridiculed nearly every customer loyalty program that I have seen. I turn a super critical eye to customer loyalty programs from retailers whose marketing departments seem to be more energized by using high-tech means to build relationships with customers, than by using high-touch means to building enduring relationships with customers.. Retail marketers need to think high-touch and not high-tech to build loyal a loyal customer base. For years, Starbucks Coffee has used high-touch methods to build and maintain a loyal customer base. In his book, Pour Your Heart in It, Howard Schultz, in supremely succinct fashion said, If we greet customers, exchange a few words with them and then custom-make a drink exactly to their taste, they will be eager to come back. That is the true description of a high-touch way retailers can connect with customers to build enduring loyalty. But the high-touch way requires companies to trust their employees to be human and to ...

Dentistry is constantly evolving and the techniques to benefit our patients constantly changing. To be high-tech is not to simply own new equipment. A larger part of having a practice on the leading edge of technology is the learning of advanced applications and techniques that make the delivery of our dental care more efficient, less post-op or no post-op pain, and better for our patients. For example, there are many composite resins that we can use for cosmetic dental bonding or for white fillings. Simply purchasing them does not make this an update practice. Learning to use the composite with techniques that decrease sensitivity and being able to mimic the natural tooth structure to create lifelike smiles is another story. Creating dental bonding that looks beautiful involves using multiple layers of composite and artistically polishing and contouring the composite to the correct texture and shine. Even more important is how the exposed tooth structure is treated before the composite or ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper explores the relationship between ownership structure and firm value in firms listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. The results of the estimations, taking into account simultaneity and reverse causality, show that the relationship between ownership concentration and firm value differs across firms belonging to the sector of innovative technologies and more mature firms. The results give support to the hypothesis that mature firms with higher ownership concentration are likely to perform better than firms with more dispersed ownership. In contrast, in high-tech companies, with large share of knowledge related activities, higher ownership concentration is associated with lower firm value. This effect is robust to various alternative specifications.
The promotion of innovation adoption in high-tech small firms (HTSFs) has long been a European priority, but despite decades of attention, there is still a dearth of innovative HTSFs and, worryingly low participation levels of HTSFs in European R&D and innovation funding programmes.

This work analyzes energy demand in a High-Tech greenhouse and its characterization, with the objective of building and evaluating classification models based on Bayesian networks. The utility of these models resides in their capacity of perceiving relations among variables in the greenhouse by identifying probabilistic dependences between them and their ability to make predictions without the need of observing all the variables present in the model. In this way they provide a useful tool for an energetic control system design. In this paper the acquisition data system used in order to collect the dataset studied is described. The energy demand distribution is analyzed and different discretization techniques are applied to reduce its dimensionality, paying particular attention to their impact on the classification model’s performance. A comparison between the different classification models applied is performed.

Downloadable ! Author(s): Wagstaff, Adam & Lindelow, Magnus. 2005 Abstract: The most basic argument for insurance is that it reduces financial risk. But since insurance opens up new opportunities for consuming expensive high-technology care which permits health improvements that are valued by the insured, and because in many settings the provider is able and has an incentive to exploit the informational advantage he has over the patient, it is not immediately obvious that insurance will in practice reduce financial risk. The authors analyze the effect of insurance on the probability of an individual incurringhighannual health expenses using data from three household surveys-one a cross-section survey, the other two panel surveys. All come from China, a country where providers have until recently largely been paid fee-for-service (often according to a schedule that encourages the overprovision of high-technology care and the underprovision of basic care) and who are only lightly regulated.

Countries can enhance endogenous innovation using multifaceted incentives for science and technology indicators. We explore country-level innovation using OECD data for research and development (R&D), patents, and exports. We deploy a dual methodology of descriptive visualization and panel regression analysis. Our results highlight industry variances in R&D spending. As a nation develops, governmental expenditure on R&D decreases, and businesses take on an increasing role to fill the gap, increasing local innovation. Our portfolio of local versus foreign resident ownership of patents highlights implications for taxation/innovation policies. Countries with high foreign ownership of patents have low tax revenues due to the lack of associated costs with, and mobility of income from, patents. We call on these countries to devise targeted policies encouraging local patent ownership. Policy makers should also recognize factors influencing high-technology exports for innovation. Lastly, we call on countries to

Without the MPT global human civilization at more than a subsistence level would never have begun. More significantly, the MPT has allowed for the eventual existence of a high-technology population of billions of people to know and widely communicate the Creators ultimate message for humanity. How?. The MPT made possible warm interglacials, during which ice recedes closer to 10 percent coverage of Earths surface, and which last not just 2,000-3,000 years but up to 10,000 years. This allows enough time to launch and sustain global human civilization to a point where billions of humans can live on Earth at one time and possess the technology for everyone to hear and understand the Christian message of how Jesus Christs atoning death by crucifixion can reconcile them to their Creator. Two to three thousand years, especially with the temperature instability that was characteristic of the 41,000-year periodicity, would not give the necessary time..

From just basing on instincts and superstitious beliefs when providing care, nursing practice has evolved almost beyond recognition. Lets look back on nursings early years and see just how far it has progressed. […]. ...
The consortiums goal is to create solar cells that operate at 50 percent in production, Barnett said. With the fresh funding and cooperative efforts of the DuPont-UD consortium, he said it is expected new high efficiency solar cells could be in production by 2010. The highly efficient VHESC solar cell uses a novel lateral optical concentrating system that splits solar light into three different energy bins of high, medium and low, and directs them onto cells of various light sensitive materials to cover the solar spectrum. The system delivers variable concentrations to the different solar cell elements. The concentrator is stationary with a wide acceptance angle optical system that captures large amounts of light and eliminates the need for complicated tracking devices. The VHESC would have immediate application in the high-technology military, which increasingly relies upon a variety of electronics for individual soldiers and the equipment that supports them. As well, it is hoped the solar ...

Fatty Liver Foundation (FLF), a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting fatty liver disease and advocating for ongoing screening of undiagnosed non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and its more severe form nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is proud to acknowledge the support of Echosens, a high-technology company offering the FibroScan family of products. FLF is raising awareness about this asymptomatic condition affecting as many as one-in-three Americans. As part of its initiatives, FLF is using FibroScan, a painless, five-minute test at the point of care to help physicians detect, monitor and prevent the progression of liver disease among patients who are often asymptomatic and may be high-risk.. FLF has completed the recruitment phase of Screening for Undiagnosed NAFLD and NASH (SUNN) study (NCT03726827), and will be publishing the results of data gathered to identify risk factors for individuals with advancing but asymptomatic liver disease who have not been diagnosed by a ...
Many associate KMC with low-income countries, in which high standards in neonatal care may be difficult to achieve. However, the benefits of KMC are also documented in high-income countries. Blomqvist and Hedberg Nyqvist (2011) conducted an evaluation of a Swedish high-technology neonatal unit, which allowed moderately preterm babies to have at least one parent present 24 hours per day. The study found that the mothers embraced KMC and gave a positive a positive evaluation based on their experience, and valued the possibility of starting KMC as early as possible. Although the role of the mother in providing KMC is crucial, other members of her support network can help with KMC, allowing the mother to get adequate rest. KMC can also help fathers of premature babies gain confidence in their role. Blomqvist et al (2012) conducted a study of fathers experiences of providing KMC for their premature babies. The babies on this study were between 28 and 34 weeks, and did not have any life threatening ...
Over the last 10 years or so, SCBUs have become much more parent-friendly, encouraging maximum involvement with the babies. Routine gowns and masks are gone and parents are encouraged to help with care as much as possible. Cuddling and skin-to-skin contact, also known as Kangaroo care, are seen as beneficial for all but the frailest (very tiny babies are exhausted by the stimulus of being handled; or larger critically ill infants). Less stressful ways of delivering high-technology medicine to tiny patients have been devised: sensors to measure blood oxygen levels through the skin, for example; and ways of reducing the amount of blood taken for tests.. Some major problems of the NICU have almost disappeared. Exchange transfusions, in which all the blood is removed and replaced, are rare now. Rhesus incompatibility (a difference in blood groups) between mother and baby is largely preventable, and was the most common cause for exchange transfusion in the past. However, breathing difficulties, ...
A new high-technology medical device used with MRI scanners that helps doctors watch the beating heart has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
REE are a group of 16 metallic elements with similar properties and structures that are essential in the manufacture of a diverse and expanding array of high-technology applications. Despite their name, they are relatively common within the earths crust, but because of their geochemical properties, they are not often found in economically exploitable concentrations.. Hard-rock deposits yield the most economically exploitable concentrations of REE. USGS researchers also analyzed two other types of REE deposits: placer and phosphorite deposits. Placer deposits are alluvial formations of sandy sediments, which often contain concentrations of heavy, dense minerals, some containing REE. Phosphorite deposits, which mostly occur in the southeastern U.S., contain large amounts of phosphate-bearing minerals. These phosphates can yield yttrium and lanthanum, which are also REE.. Ninety-six percent of REE produced globally now comes from China. New REE mines are being developed in Australia, and projects ...
