The FBI is investigating whether high speed trading firms are engaging in insider trading by selling or buying stocks based on information that other market participants cannot yet see.

We need to know and separate the nature and consequences of these two different processes, that is, we want to know the signs and the magnitudes of the indirect effects. In the parametric linear version of structural equation models, there exists a calculus of path coefficients in which we can write total effects in terms of direct and several indirect effects.
Urinary and plasma creatinine have been used in clinical practice as indicators of skeletal muscle mass in health and disease. All participants had their body composition measured by dual energy X ray absorptiometry scan, aerobic capacity measured to anaerobic threshold (AT) by cardiopulmonary exercise testing and filled in objective questionnaires to assess the qualitative functions. AT was significantly lower in the CRC group compared with matched controls (1.18 0.44 vs.
Ethnomusicologists would agree that music is an art and an entertainment, but we also know that music is much more than that. Music can be a therapy and can heal; it can be a commodity with great commercial and economic value; it can be the ground on which cultural and ideological issues are contested; it can be the place where people learn to form and enact important aspects of their social identity.
