Pollution havens and foreign direct investment : dirty secret or popular myth? by Beata K. Smarzynska Javorcik( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "pollution haven" hypothesis states that multinational firms, particularly those in highly polluting industries, relocate to countries with weak environmental standards. Despite the plausibility and popularity of this hypothesis, Smarzynska and Wei find only weak evidence in its favor
Insignificant and inconsequential hysteresis : the case of U.S. bilateral trade by David C Parsley( Book )

2 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper casts doubt on the validity of the hysteresis hypothesis as an explanation of the persistent U.S. trade deficits in the 1980s. We propose two tests to investigate two different implications of the hypothesis. The first implication is that cumulative changes in exchange rates, in addition to current exchange rate levels, are important determinants of trade flows. The second implication is that foreign exporting firms' perceptions of exchange rate volatility will affect their decisions to enter or exit the market. We find little support for either aspect of the hysteresis hypothesis

Development and characterization of aptamer-based enzyme-linked apta-sorbent assay for the detection of Singapore grouper iridovirus infection( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Aims: Singapore grouper iridovirus (SGIV) is a devastating aquaculture virus responsible for heavy economic losses to grouper, Epinephelus sp. aquaculture. The aim of this study was to develop a rapid and sensitive detection method for SGIV infections in infected groupers. Methods and Results: We previously generated DNA aptamers against SGIV-infected cells. In this study, we established and characterized a novel aptamer (Q3)-based enzyme-linked apta-sorbent assay (ELASA) for the detection of SGIV infection in Epinephelus coioides . The Q3-based ELASA could detect SGIV infection rapidly in vitro and in vivo, with high specificity and stability. Q3-based ELASA specifically recognized SGIV-infected cells, but not other-virus-infected cells or uninfected cells. Q3-based ELASA detected SGIV infection in a dose-dependent manner at Q3 concentrations as low as 125 nmol l −1 . The results in relation to SGIV-infected cells (5 × 10 4 ), incubation time (1 min) and incubation temperature (37°C) demonstrated that Q3-based ELASA could detect SGIV infection quickly and stably, superior to antibody-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Q3-based ELASA could detect the presence of SGIV infection in kidney, liver and spleen samples in vivo, at dilutions of 1/50, 1/100 and 1/50 respectively. The complete detection process took 1-2 h. Conclusions: Q3-based ELASA could be a useful tool for diagnosing SGIV infection. Significance and Impact of the Study: This is the first developed aptamer-based ELASA for detecting SGIV infection, and is widely applicable in grouper aquaculture industry in light of its rapidity, and high specificity and stability

To DFT or not to DFT?( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: "The decision to use DFT is still not an easy one. Ideally, one would like to formally link the DFT decision to design characteristics of the artifact being considered. But the relationships between DFT and these characteristics (testability, die area, volume, wafer cost, wafer size, etc.) are poorly understood. Moreover, the nature of these relationships varies across companies, designs, and technologies. In an attempt to improve the DFT decision process, we have developed a model that captures the cost and benefit of DFT. Examples that utilize realistic input data show that the neglected benefits of DFT can have a significant influence on the answer to the DFT question."

Doping effect from Ag and Sb in KBiO3 photocatalyst: first principles study( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : The direct band gap of cubic KBiO3 with space group Pn -3 calculated from the standard density functional theory (DFT) within the Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof functional is <"·54 eV and obviously underestimated in comparison with the experimental value of 2·1 eV. Using the Heyd-Scuseria-Ernzerhof hybrid functional, the band gap can be corrected to <"·77 eV. Further, first principles calculations on Ag/Sb doped KBiO3 indicate that a flexible band gap can be obtained by adjusting the amount of Ag and Sb doping in KBiO3 . In particular, K0·667 Ag0·333 Bi0·5 Sb0·5 O3 has a DFT band gap of 0·61 eV and larger dispersion at the bottom of the conduction band with smaller effective electron masses, which would lead to an enhancement in photocatalytic activity in comparison with pure KBiO3

How taxing is corruption on international investors? by Shang-Jin Wei( Book )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper studies the effect of corruption on foreign direct investment. The sample covers bilateral investment from fourteen source countries to forty-five host countries during 1990-91. There are three central findings. (1) A rise in either the tax rate on multinational firms or the corruption level in a host country reduces inward foreign direct investment (FDI). An increase in the corruption level from that of Singapore to that of Mexico is equivalent to raising the tax rate by over twenty percentage points. (2) There is no support for the hypothesis that corruption has a smaller effect on FDI into East Asian host countries. (3) American investors are averse to corruption in host countries, but not necessarily more so than average OECD investors, in spite of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977. On the other hand, there is some weak support for the hypothesis that Japanese investors may be somewhat less sensitive to corruption. Neither American nor Japanese investors treat corruption in East Asia any differently from that in other parts of the world. There are other interesting and sensible findings. For example, consistent with theories that emphasize the importance of networks in trade and investment, sharing a common linguistic tie between the source and host countries and geographic proximity between the two are associated with a sizable increase in the bilateral FDI flow
Reconstruction of genome-scale metabolic model of Yarrowia lipolytica and its application in overproduction of triacylglycerol by S Wei( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background: Yarrowia lipolytica is widely studied as a non-conventional model yeast owing to the high level of lipid accumulation. Therein, triacylglycerol (TAG) is a major component of liposome. In order to investigate the TAG biosynthesis mechanism at a systematic level, a novel genome-scale metabolic model of Y. lipolytica was reconstructed based on a previous model iYL619_PCP published by our lab and another model iYali4 published by Kerkhoven et al. Results: The novel model iYL_2.0 contains 645 genes, 1083 metabolites, and 1471 reactions, which was validated more effective on simulations of specific growth rate. The precision of 29 carbon sources utilities reached up to 96.6% when simulated by iYL_2.0. In minimal growth medium, 111 genes were identified as essential for cell growth, whereas 66 essential genes were identified in yeast extract medium, which were verified by database of essential genes, suggesting a better prediction ability of iYL_2.0 in comparison with other existing models. In addition, potential metabolic engineering targets of improving TAG production were predicted by three in silico methods developed in-house, and the effects of amino acids supplementation were investigated based on model iYL_2.0. Conclusions: The reconstructed model iYL_2.0 is a powerful platform for efficiently optimizing the metabolism of TAG and systematically understanding the physiological mechanism of Y. lipolytica.

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report presents the progress on the conversion of a standard U.S. Army Position and Azimuth Determining System (PADS AN/USQ-70) to an Auto Surveyor System Dash II (LASS-II) to a Rapid Geodetic Survey System (RGSS). Multiple efforts have been initiated for this contract requirement as follows: (1) Perform the non-recurring engineering design for conversion of a LASS-II to an RGSS. (2) Perform the necessary real-time software mechanization changes to enable an RGSS to attain the following performance goals: a. Interim Goal: Map the gravity disturbance vector to 0.3 sec (RMS) for the deflection components and 0.5 milligal (RMS) for the gravity anomaly. b. Long Term goal: 0.1 sec (RMS) for the deflection component and 0.1 milligal (RMS) for the gravity anomaly as the ultimate goal. (3) In depth investigation of RGSS real-time software definitions, output parameters expansion, and computer simulations for validation of the on-line software mechanization. Hardware changes, real-time software modifications and definitions are contained herein to attain the interim and ultimate performance goals. (jhd)
