    effects on through traffic, reduced variability according to distance, time and spatial collocation of trips) and from the point of view of the share of users obliged to pay. Many findings, confirmed by the specific case study carried on in the city of Pavia, show in fact a large amount of exemptions (residents, doctors, retailers) and not-chargeable lots: private garages, supermarket lots, company parking (including University) that, together with high levels of illegal parking, can seriously reduce the effectiveness and efficiency of the instrument. In this scenario, tariff values and typologies of users obliged to pay (mainly occasional visitors to the city centres) seem to show how parking fees can be considered more a revenue raising instrument (falling on non-resident) than a real environmental charge. In the conclusions of the paper some possible solutions (electronic road pricing, cash out, parking lots taxation, policy packaging) to the previous problems are briefly taken into consideration. [Italian] Un interesse crescente e stato rivolto sia dall'analisi teorica che dai regolatori pubblici all'utilizzo di strumenti economici per la gestione della mobilita motorizzata all'interno delle aree urbane. In tale ambito ha acquisito un rilievo particolare, soprattutto dal punto di vista della diffusione delle applicazioni, la tariffazione della sosta, interpretata sia come strumento di razionamento degli spazi urbani, che come forma indiretta di gestione della mobilita. Nella prima parte del lavoro, sulla base della letteratura esistente, vengono prese in considerazione le principali potenzialita del parking pricing, sia in termini di efficienza ed efficacia, che di accettabilita complessiva, evidenziandone contemporaneamente i principali vincoli applicativi. Nella seconda parte viene analizzata l'esperienza italiana, ove la diffusione della sosta a pagamento ha sperimentato una rapida e generalizzata ascesa nel corso degli ultimi anni. Il quadro

    La stima trimestrale dei conti economici nazionali consente di fornire un quadro coerente dell’evoluzione dell’economia. In molti Paesi europei l’elaborazione di queste stime si fonda su metodologie indirette che fanno uso di indicatori di riferimento per la valutazione della dinamica infrannuale dei fenomeni in esame. In questo lavoro si offre una nuova chiave di lettura di alcuni metodi di stima e si esaminano i criteri di scel-ta tra indicatori alternativi, il corretto utilizzo degli indic...

    Full Text Available L’articolo analizza il processo di sviluppo delle tecnologie finalizzate alla comunicazione in rete nel web 2.0 e alcune possibilità della loro utilizzazione a fini didattici. La prima parte illustra la situazione attuale del web, con le sue risorse in ambito tecnologico e le sue peculiarità rispetto a una didattica che dovrebbe tener conto, in maniera sempre maggiore, dei nuovi strumenti di comunicazione basati sulla percezione sociale della rete.  Nella sua parte centrale, l’articolo propone alcune possibilità d’uso di strumenti web in situazioni “non ideali” - dal punto di vista della disponibilità oggettiva delle nuove tecnologie in classe - e illustra alcuni esempi di utilizzo degli stessi in situazioni, invece, “ideali”.  Tra gli strumenti oggetto di questo lavoro c’è una piattaforma didattica utilizzata per attività di apprendimento assistito dell’Italiano per Stranieri con riferimenti ai suoi strumenti di amministrazione dei contenuti, con approfondimenti sulla presentazione di attività video, audio e scrittura attraverso software di gestione e presentazione dei materiali. Oltre a fornire un quadro, si spera, concreto e sintetico delle prospettive dell’uso di strumenti in continuo divenire, un altro obiettivo dell’articolo è quello di mostrare la possibilità di uno sviluppo ulteriore della già sostanziale funzione autoriale di un docente di lingua, attraverso la creazione di materiali specifici per un corso con strumenti che possano favorirne il riutilizzo e l’aggiornamento.     Online tools and technologies for teaching and learning languages This article analyzes the development of technologies aimed at online communication in the 2.0 web ambient and a few ways they can be used for teaching.

    The new industrial political tools based on the sustainable development of productive activities, and originating at the Rio Conference in 1992, late introduced by the EU, the Government and voluntary organizations (ISO, CEM, UNI) are gradually entering the market, thereby underling their effect in terms of industrial competitiveness. The main tools were examined in the report and mostly refer to the voluntary ones which, in surpassing the 'command and control' logic, increasingly tend to get close to traditional fiscal, tariff and financial ones. Voluntary agreements, environmental management systems (EMAS, ISO 14001), the risk prevention systems (UNI 10617), certification (Eco label, ISO 14040) and environment communication tools (environment balance sheet, environmental report, environmental statement) are synthetically described.

Nel rapporto sono stati esaminati i principali tra questi strumenti con particolare riferimento a quelli volontari che sempre piu', nel superamento della logica del 'command-control', tendono ad affiancarsi a quelli tradizionali di carattere fiscale, tariffario e finanziario.

    Full Text Available intervento esamina la teoria e la pratica delle cinture verdi come strumento di contenimento urbano all’interno del contesto europeo. Si evidenzia l’importanza attribuita alle città compatte nell’ European Spatial Development Perspective e pertanto si riflette mettendo a confronto alcune pratiche in differenti parti di Europa. Una particolare enfasi è posta alla comparazione delle politiche e dell’implementazione in Scozia e in Olanda. L’analisi mostra che le cinture verdi sono finalizzate a perseguire numerosi obiettivi di politiche di piano: esse non sono esclusivamente uno strumento per gestire le risorse del paesaggio; infatti hanno impatti economici e sociali allo stessa stregua degli impatti paesaggistici. Ci sono inoltre importanti questioni circa la relazione tra le politiche e l’implementazione. Raccomandazioni conclusive sono volte ad un più attivo disegno e approccio gestionale alla pianificazione del territorio ai confini della città come parte integrante della pratica di pianificazione spaziale strategica.

    Full Text Available Il Trentino. Cenni geografici, storici, economici. Con un’appendice sull’Alto Adige is a thematic atlas edited in 1915 by the Italian geographer and politician Cesare Battisti (1875-1916. The atlas represents an original and considerable work related to the exploitation and representation of a regional study. It also reproduces and applies the most important geographical theories of coeval Italian and international geography. In this work Battisti distanced himself from his traditional socialist oriented approach to embrace radical nationalist positions. This is provided by his acceptance to consider the whole southern portion of the Austrian Tirol till the Alpine watershed as part of the Italian nation.

    Introduzione: gli strumenti “soggettivi” di valutazione dello stato di salute appaiono sempre più utili per l’epidemiologia descrittiva di popolazioni e comunità. Il profilo di salute ottenuto con strumenti psicometrici è utilizzabile come analizzatore del bisogno assistenziale (e, conseguentemente, valutatore del risultato di interventi e attività sanitarie e si affianca ormai diffusamente alle più tradizionali misure “oggettive”.

    Obiettivo: descrivere il profilo di salute percepita dagli studenti e valutare il ruolo sullo stesso di alcune variabili.

    Materiali e Metodi: il questionario SF36 descrive lo stato di salute attraverso 8 domini, alcuni correlati con l’area fisica, altri con quella psicologica/sociale. Esso è stato distribuito a 380 studenti (179 esaminandi e 201 non esaminandi: 237 (62,4% femmine, 261 (68,7% non residenti nella provincia di Siena; età media 21 anni (range 18-41. Sono state calcolate le medie delle scale e confrontate con lo standard tramite il t test. Sono stati effettuati confronti per sesso, residenza e giorno di somministrazione del questionario (esame, non esame. Con il test del Chi quadrato si è verificato se le variabili sesso, età, residenza e giorno di somministrazione fossero associate alle 8 scale. Come standard di riferimento sono stati utilizzati i valori (fascia età 18-24 anni derivati da una indagine condotta dalla DOXA in Italia nel 1995 (progetto IQOLA.

    Full Text Available Il saggio presenta alcuni risultati di una collaborazione tra Politecnico di Torino e il CSI Piemonte (Società di servizi Informatizzati partecipata dalla Regione Piemonte. Sono stati selezionati e studiati diversi strumenti di visualizzazione dei dati scientifici (Gapminder, ManyEyes, Open eXplorer e Fineo al fine di individuare quello più utile per una lettura induttiva di grandi quantità di dati informativi (big data. Lo sfruttamento intelligente dei dati digitali può portare a uno sviluppo conoscitivo ma anche a un profitto, le cui soglie di sfruttamento possono essere misurate in un sistema economico. Nell’irreversibile fenomeno di crescita dei dati digitali, la disciplina del “Data Visualization” diventa cruciale per accedere e comprendere informazioni complesse. Few, guru della comunicazione visiva, scrive che “scopriamo il mondo attraverso gli occhi”; le forme di comunicazione e interpretazione tradizionali dei dati hanno puntato sulla dimensione visuale per migliorare la comprensione e hanno permesso sia agli analisti sia agli utenti la sperimentazione di nuove interazioni (“story-telling”. Come urbanisti e cittadini, ci affidiamo alla vista che gestisce molti dei sensori (70% legati alla percezione, alle mappe cognitive, agli errori e ai nuovi pensieri. L’ipotesi di fondo di questo articolo vuole generare delle riflessioni sui Big Data come strategia importante per le imprese pubbliche e private che intendono imparare a cambiare dalle informazioni digitali di cui oggi disponiamo. Attraverso l’uso di uno strumento analitico di visualizzazione dei dati informativi, si descrive un recente caso di studio in un contesto territoriale come quello dei nuovi consorzi amministrativi (Unione dei Comuni NordEst Torino. In questo esperimento torna a essere attuale la necessità di pianificare le scelte in modo sistematico anche cercando di utilizzare in modo nuovo e semplice i sistemi informativi territoriali già disponibili.

    Levin, Alex V; Ganesh, Anuradha; Al-Busaidi, Ahmed

    2011-02-01

    Fee splitting and co-management are common practices in ophthalmology. These arrangements may conflict with the ethical principles governing the doctor-patient relationship, may constitute professional misconduct, and at times, may be illegal. Implications and perceptions of these practices may vary between different cultures. Full disclosure to the patient may minimize the adverse effects of conflicts of interest that arise from these practices, and may thereby allow these practices to be deemed acceptable by some cultural morays, professional guidelines, or by law. Disclosure does not necessarily relieve the physician from a potential ethical compromise. This review examines the practice of fee splitting in ophthalmology, its legal implications, the policies or guidelines governing such arrangements, and the possible ethical ramifications. A comparative view between 3 countries, Canada, the United States, and Oman, was conducted; illustrating that even in disparate cultures, there may be some universality to the application of ethical principles.

    Full Text Available Il Novecento dell’architettura ha conosciuto numerosi episodi di dibattito intenso. È il secolo nel quale si sono moltiplicati in maniera esponenziale gli «strumenti discorsivi»: i manifesti, i saggi critici, le riviste, le scuole, le mostre. Così, più ancora che nei secoli precedenti, ha preso piede il discorso intorno all’architettura, sovrapponendosi a tratti all’architettura medesima, alle sue forme e alla sua costruzione. La parola, prendendo il sopravvento, può nascondere allo studioso la forma architettonica, a meno che lo studioso medesimo non ricorra al disegno come strumento di analisi, vero apparecchio scientifico utile a disvelare grammatiche e sintassi di composizioni architettoniche attraverso la tecnica della «lettura compositiva». / The Twentieth century in architecture has experienced many episodes of intense debate. It is the century in which the 'discursive tools" increased through manifestos, essays, journals, schools, exhibitions. Thus, even more than in the previous centuries, the talk around architecture improved, overlapping at the same time the architecture itself with its forms and its construction. The word takes over and it can hide the architectural form to the scholar, unless this one does not use the design as a tool of analysis, true scientific and useful medium to reveal the architectural composition and its syntax, using the «compositive lectures».

    Lead is an heavy metal that has a major impact on human health and his removal from the environment is an important action for its protection. The aim of the present work is to provide a framework of the Italian lead recycling with respect to the economic and environmental aspects of COBAT activities (COBAT is the Mandatory Consortium to collect and recycle the exhaust lead-acid batteries and lead wastes). In order to better understand the context in which COBAT works, some statistical data on the lead production, consumption and end uses in Italy and in the world are provided. An estimate of the energy consumptions and the environmental impact related to Italian lead production was also carried out. [Italian] Il piombo e' uno dei metalli pesanti a maggiore impatto ambientale e sanitario e la sua rimozione dall'ambiente costituisce un'importante azione di protezione e tutela della salute umana. Lo scopo del presente lavoro e' quello di fornire un quadro di riferimento relativo al riciclaggio del piombo in Italia evidenziandone gli aspetti ambientali ed economici in relazione alle attivita' condotte dal COBAT (Consorzio Obbligatorio delle Batterie Esauste e dei rifiuti piombosi). In tal senso, per disporre di una visione piu' completa del contesto in cui si inserisce l'attivita' del Consorzio, vengono forniti alcuni dati di carattere statistico sulla produzione, sul consumo e sugli utilizzi del piombo in Italia e nel mondo e viene effettuata una stima dei consumi energetici e dell'impianto ambientale associati alla produzione di piombo nazionale.

  6. Models for economical and environmental systematic cost benefit assessment of waste separate collection.

    2001-04-01

    The research carried out by the Turin University on behalf of Fise Assoambiente, starting from an analysis of the specialised bibliography of the sector, has highlighted the complexity of the waste problem and the need of a more thorough study aiming at assessing economical and environmental impacts deriving from separate collection, with particular reference to the paper sector. To this end, thanks to the co-operation of companies operating in the collection, sorting and grading of paper and paper mills using maceration, it was possible to develop a model for micro-economical and environmental analysis of the paper cycle which supplied useful data for the detection - by means of the Stella programme, produced by High Performance Systems Inc. - of the effects resulting from a waste management policy oriented towards the attainment of the rigid separate collection targets. [Italian] La ricerca svolta dall'Universita' di Torino per conto di Fise Assoambiente, partendo da un'analisi di bibliografia specializzata del settore, ha evidenziato la complessita' del problema rifiuti e la necessita' di un approfondimento volto a valutare gli impatti economici ed ambientali derivanti dalla raccolta differenziata, con particolare riferimento al settore della carta. A tale scopo, grazie alla collaborazione di imprese operanti nel settore della raccolta, selezione e cernita della carta e di cartiere che utilizzano macero, e' stato predisposto un modello per l'analisi microeconomica ed ambientale della filiera carta, che ha fornito dati utili per rilevare a livello macroeconomico, mediante il programma Stella, prodotto dalla High Performance Systems Inc., gli effetti che scaturiscono da una politica di gestione dei rifiuti orientata al raggiungimento di obiettivi rigidi di raccolta differenziata.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    David Frapiccini

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available Con il testamento del 25 marzo 1531 Lorenzo Lotto stabiliva la ripartizione dei modelli in gesso e in cera e dei propri disegni tra tre suoi antichi allievi: il bergamasco Francesco Bonetti, il veneziano Pietro di Giovanni – in quel momento attivo a Ragusa, l’odierna Dubrovnik – e il marchigiano maestro Giulio da Amandola, identificabile con Giulio Vergari. Dalle provenienze dei tre artefici si manifesta una chiara mappa geografica, come se Lotto avesse consapevolmente deciso di lasciare i ferri del mestiere nei luoghi della sua esperienza pittorica: a Bergamo, a Venezia e nelle Marche. Contemporaneamente Lotto frequenta i pittori Alessandro Oliverio, Bonifacio de’ Pitati da Verona e Girolamo da Santa Croce: il secondo, stando alle disposizioni testamentarie, avrebbe dovuto completare le opere rimaste incompiute alla morte di Lotto, mentre al terzo sarebbero andati alcuni strumenti della professione a beneficio dei propri figli. Si viene così a delineare un gruppo di artisti marginale rispetto al contesto lagunare, ma orientato verso committenze di entroterra o di area adriatica. La consapevolezza acquisita da Lotto nell’incidenza territoriale della sua attività spiega la ragione delle reminiscenze iconografiche e formali bergamasche in parte della produzione risalente agli estremi anni marchigiani (1549-1556, ovvero a quella fase inaugurata con l’Assunzione anconetana di San Francesco alle Scale, pala realizzata nel 1549-1550 con la collaborazione di Giuseppe Belli da Ponteranica.

The origins of the three painters manifest a clear geographical map, as if Lotto had consciously decided to leave the

  17. Charging fees for family planning services.

    Science.gov (United States)

    1992-01-01

    As the demand for family planning services expands, governments and international donor agencies are finding it increasingly difficult to subsidize the costs of these services and are examining the feasibility of client fees. This issue of "The Family Planning Manager" evaluates the pros and cons of charging for services and outlines steps for instituting such a program. This process should be preceded by an assessment of the objective in introducing user fees, the ability and willingness of clients to pay for services, client perceptions of the quality of services, possible regulatory and political restrictions to charging fees, and the actual cost of each service provided. Registration, membership, service, and contraception fees are among the approaches to revenue generation. Fee determination can be based on ability to pay, fees charged for comparable services at benchmark clinics, in relation to the price of common household commodities (e.g., annual membership equivalent to the cost of 12 soft drinks), or specific cost recovery objectives (e.g., 25% of operating costs). The introduction of client fees requires a system for collecting and checking fees at service sites, exemption policies or waivers for those not able to afford the cost of services, internal financial controls, and regular financial reporting procedures. The community has a right to be informed about the fees that will be charged for each service, how the fees are being used, and whether the organization is making a profit. It is important to emphasize that revenue from fees will be used to enhance the quality of clinic services.

    Full Text Available Il lavoro mira a indagare l’effettivo grado di utilizzo da parte delle imprese longeve italiane dei molteplici strumenti potenzialmente a disposizione per valorizzare in chiave strategica il proprio vissuto storico. A tal fi ne, si propone una sistematizzazione della letteratura sul tema atta a identificare in maniera puntuale i vari strumenti di heritage marketing e, successivamente, se ne indaga l’effettiva diffusione. In particolare, sono state raccolte e analizzate informazioni accurate sulle attività realizzate da 238 imprese di medie e grandi dimensioni iscritte nel Registro nazionale delle imprese storiche italiane di Unioncamere. L’indagine ha rivelato che le imprese longeve approcciano i singoli strumenti di heritage marketing in modo sperimentale e in mancanza di una visione integrata. Sono una minoranza quelle che mostrano di percepire i vantaggi di una convinta e pluriforme azione di valorizzazione del proprio vissuto storico. Il lavoro costituisce il primo esempio d’indagine su larga scala volta a investigare l’utilizzo dei diversi strumenti di heritage marketing e, rispetto a precedenti studi, si distingue per la numerosità delle imprese analizzate e per la completezza e l’eterogeneità degli strumenti considerati. The main aim of this study is to understand if and how Italian long-lived firms are oriented towards a strategic exploitation of their cultural and historical heritage. To this aim, first we reviewed the extant literature on the topic in order to identify the different tools potentially available to implement a heritage marketing strategy and, then, we investigated their actual level of use. A desk research covered 238 medium and large firms entered in the National Register of Italian Historical Firms edited by Unioncamere. For each firm we collected timely information about the different activities of heritage marketing carried out. Our study reveals that long-lived firms approach the single tools of

  16. Trends in Medicaid physician fees, 1993-1998.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Norton, S; Zuckerman, S

    2000-01-01

    This study uses data on Medicaid physician fees in 1993 and 1998 to document variation in fees across the country, describe changes in these fees, and contrast how they changed relative to those in Medicare. The results show that 1998 Medicaid fees varied widely. Medicaid fees grew 4.6 percent between 1993 and 1998, lagging behind the general rate of inflation. This growth was greater for primary care services than for other services studied. Relative to Medicare physician fees, Medicaid fees fell by 14.3 percent between 1993 and 1998. Medicaid's low fees and slow growth rates suggest that potential access problems among Medicaid enrollees remain a policy issue that should be monitored.

  6. Do client fees help or hurt?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Barnett, B

    1998-01-01

    This article discusses the impact of client fees for family planning (FP) services on cost recovery and level of user services in developing countries. The UN Population Fund reports that developing country governments currently pay 75% of the costs of FP programs. Donors contribute 15%, and clients pay 10%. Current pressures are on FP services to broaden and improve their scope, while user demand is increasing. Program managers should consider the program's need for funds and the clients' willingness to pay. Clients are willing to pay about 1% of their income for contraception. A study of sterilization acceptance in Mexico finds that the average monthly case load declined by 10% after the 1st price increase from $43 to $55 and declined by 58% after the 2nd price increase to $60. Fewer low-income clients requested sterilization. A CEMOPLAF study in Ecuador finds that in three price increase situations the number of clients seeking services declined, but the economic mix of clients remained about the same. The decline was 20% in the group with a 20% price increase and 26% in the 40% increase group. In setting fees, the first need is to determine unit costs. The Futures Group International recommends considering political, regulatory, and institutional constraints for charging fees; priorities for revenue use; protection for poor clients; and monitoring of money collection and expenditure. Management Sciences for Health emphasizes consideration of the reasons for collection of fees, client affordability, and client perception of quality issues. Sliding scales can be used to protect poor clients. Charging fees for laboratory services can subsidize poor clients. A Bangladesh program operated a restaurant and catering service in order to subsidize FP services. Colombia's PROFAMILIA sells medical and surgical services and a social marketing program in order to expand clinics.

  7. Abolition of user fees: the Uganda paradox.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Nabyonga Orem, Juliet; Mugisha, Frederick; Kirunga, Christine; Macq, Jean; Criel, Bart

    2011-11-01

    Inadequate health financing is one of the major challenges health systems in low-income countries currently face. Health financing reforms are being implemented with an increasing interest in policies that abolish user fees. Data from three nationally representative surveys conducted in Uganda in 1999/2000, 2002/03 and 2005/06 were used to investigate the impact of user fee abolition on the attainment of universal coverage objectives. An increase in illness reporting was noted over the three surveys, especially among the poorer quintiles. An increase in utilization was registered in the period immediately following the abolition of user fees and was most pronounced in the poorest quintile. Overall, there was an increase in utilization in both public and private health care delivery sectors, but only at clinic and health centre level, not at hospitals. Our study shows important changes in health-care-seeking behaviour. In 2002/03, the poorest population quintile started using government health centres more often than private clinics whereas in 1999/2000 private clinics were the main source of health care. The richest quintile has increasingly used private clinics. Overall, it appears that the private sector remains a significant source of health care. Following abolition of user fees, we note an increase in the use of lower levels of care with subsequent reductions in use of hospitals. Total annual average expenditures on health per household remained fairly stable between the 1999/2000 and 2002/03 surveys. There was, however, an increase of US$21 in expenditure between the 2002/03 and 2005/06 surveys. Abolition of user fees improved access to health services and efficiency in utilization. On the negative side is the fact that financial protection is yet to be achieved. Out-of-pocket expenditure remains high and mainly affects the poorer population quintiles. A dual system seems to have emerged where wealthier population groups are switching to the private sector.

  12. GENERIC DRUG USER FEE: AN OVERVIEW

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Darshit S. Patel*, Abhishek R. Patel and Narendra A. Patel

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available The globalization of generic drug manufacturing, supply and testing, and a growing workload that has far outpaced USFDA’s resources has created new challenges. USFDA & Industry propose generic drug user fee to address the need for globalization of the inspection process, and to speed the timely review of generic product applications. The Generic Drug User Fee (GDUF proposal is agreed by generic industry & USFDA and is focused on three key aims: safety, access, and transparency. Under the program, USFDA will receive nearly $1.5 billion over five years in supplemental funding through generic industry user fees in order to help the agency expedite access to generic drugs, enhance drug quality and safety and ensure inspection parity of both foreign and domestic manufacturing sites. GDUF also will help accelerate the market entry of additional manufacturers of drugs currently in short supply and improve quality, consistency, and availability within the supply chain, further helping to mitigate drug shortages. The GDUF new legislation is a milestone for the generic giants and a major win for American health care consumers.

  14. Antiziganismo: strumenti interpretativi e fenomenologia contemporanea

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sabrina Tosi Cambini

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available The article is divided into three parts. The first concerns the concept of Anti-Gypsyism; the second, the stereotypes and the research conducted by the author on the alleged kidnapping by Roma; concludes with a discussion about the link between Anti-Gypsyism, power and urban space. Anti-Gypsyism is a distinct type of racist ideology. It is, at the same time, similar, different, and intertwined with many other types of racism. Anti- Gypsyism is used to justify and perpetrate the exclusion and supposed inferiority of Roma and is based on historical persecution and negative stereotypes (see also V. Nicolae 2006. According to Herzfeld (1997 stereotypes can be used for trade or in situations of conflict in which questions of identity are played out. Individuals and social groups appropriate these collective imaginations and use them to reify their sense of collective self. The analysis of cases of alleged kidnapping clearly shows the “baby-stealing Gypsies” stereotype in action and exemplar in action and how it produces effects of reality. Drawing on an ethnographic study on the cases of alleged kidnapping of non-Romani children by Roma and Sinti adults in Italy, the research demonstrates how negative stereotyping which construct the Roma as dangerous nomadic people, foreigners from whom society must be protected, can affect their treatment by prosecutors, lawyers and judges in the Italian judicial system. The conflation of Romani identity with nomadic lifestyle features widely in Italian public discourse on the Roma and, as it has been validly pointed out in scholarly debate (Piasere 1991; Brunello 1996; Sigona 2002, has gone some way towards building differential treatment towards Romani groups in particular in relation to housing policies and the spread of ‘nomad camps’ (Sigona 2005.

    The notion of attributing user fees to researchers for biospecimens provided by biobanks has been discussed frequently in the literature. However, the considerations around how to attribute the cost for these biospecimens and data have, until recently, not been well described. Common across most biobank disciplines are similar factors that influence user fees such as capital and operating costs, internal and external demand, and market competition. A biospecimen user fee calculator tool developed by CTRNet, a tumor biobank network, was published in 2014 and is accessible online at www.biobanking.org . The next year a survey was launched that tested the applicability of this user fee tool among a global health research biobank user base, including both cancer and noncancer biobanking. Participants were first asked to estimate user fee pricing for three hypothetical user scenarios based on their biobanking experience (estimated pricing) and then to calculate fees for the same scenarios using the calculator tool (calculated pricing). Results demonstrated variation in estimated pricing that was reduced by calculated pricing. These results are similar to those found in a similar previous study restricted to a group of Canadian tumor biobanks. We conclude that the use of a biospecimen user fee calculator contributes to reduced variation of user fees and for biobank groups (e.g., biobank networks), could become an important part of a harmonization strategy.

    1994-01-01

    A Cost Plus Award Fee contract is the best procurement vehicle for the high-tech, one-of-a-kind, development projects that constitute most of NASA'S projects. The use of this type of contract requires more government and contractor effort than any other forms of contracts. An award fee contract is described as an arrangement whereby the government periodically awards a fee consistent with the cost, schedule and technical performance that is achieved by a contractor during a preset period with preset award fee pools. It's the only contracting method where both the government and contractor goals are closely linked. It also has a built-in mechanism to conveniently alter and emphasize program events in order to current external and internal situations. The award fee process also demands good communication between government and contractor participants.

    2014-08-01

    The question of how best to attribute the unit costs of the annotated biospecimen product that is provided to a research user is a common issue for many biobanks. Some of the factors influencing user fees are capital and operating costs, internal and external demand and market competition, and moral standards that dictate that fees must have an ethical basis. It is therefore important to establish a transparent and accurate costing tool that can be utilized by biobanks and aid them in establishing biospecimen user fees. To address this issue, we built a biospecimen user fee calculator tool, accessible online at www.biobanking.org . The tool was built to allow input of: i) annual operating and capital costs; ii) costs categorized by the major core biobanking operations; iii) specimen products requested by a biobank user; and iv) services provided by the biobank beyond core operations (e.g., histology, tissue micro-array); as well as v) several user defined variables to allow the calculator to be adapted to different biobank operational designs. To establish default values for variables within the calculator, we first surveyed the members of the Canadian Tumour Repository Network (CTRNet) management committee. We then enrolled four different participants from CTRNet biobanks to test the hypothesis that the calculator tool could change approaches to user fees. Participants were first asked to estimate user fee pricing for three hypothetical user scenarios based on their biobanking experience (estimated pricing) and then to calculate fees for the same scenarios using the calculator tool (calculated pricing). Results demonstrated significant variation in estimated pricing that was reduced by calculated pricing, and that higher user fees are consistently derived when using the calculator. We conclude that adoption of this online calculator for user fee determination is an important first step towards harmonization and realistic user fees.

    2015-01-01

    After more than a decade of giving online news away for free, legacy newspaper organisations in many Western countries have recently begun charging audiences for access to online journalistic content. Focusing empirically on a Danish case, this article uses one survey (n = 1054) and two focus...... groups to examine audiences’ attitudes toward paying for online news. The analysis suggests that audiences’ general principles regarding paying for online news influence their willingness to pay more than the size of the subscription fee. Furthermore, the analysis shows that younger audiences......’ willingness to pay increases if they can combine content from different news providers and thereby individualise their news products. The latter in particular can have practical implications as it presents a way forward for economically challenged legacy newspaper organisations, but it might also compromise...

  8. Tasting fees and the youth market

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Peter Treloar

    2008-06-01

    Full Text Available Many wineries in Australia and New Zealand are seeking strategies to continue to develop in a highly competitive marketplace. One such strategy is via the development of wine tourism. Although there is a significant amount of literature of the relative advantages and disadvantages of wine tourism for small wineries, particularly with respect to its educational and market development function, there is very little research available on how wine tourism is perceived by the next generation of wine drinkers – the youth market. The purpose of this study is therefore to gain a better understanding of how the youth market perceives tasting fees at wineries and influences on purchasing and other wine behaviours. In late 2003, 599 surveys were distributed to ten universities throughout Australia and New Zealand, of which 448 were returned, representing a valid response rate of 74.8 percent. The results of the survey indicated that the majority of respondents who thought of wine tourism as an appealing activity, who had visited wineries previously, who normally consumed and purchased wine and who had some knowledge of wine all thought that a fee at the cellar door would impact on their decision to visit. Wineries need to maximise the return on their wine, however there also needs to be recognition of the potential trade-off between immediate returns from charging for tastings and cellar-door sales versus longer-term returns from direct and indirect sales. In some markets, and particularly the ‘Generation Y’ market, seeking short-term returns through charging may affect longer-term custom and loyalty. However, regardless of the strategy, it is important that it is effectively communicated to the market, particularly if individual wineries are interested in growing the market for the future.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    DAVIS, T.L.

    1998-10-22

    Fiscal Year 1999 represents the third fill year utilizing a results-oriented, performance-based evaluation for the Contractor's operations and management of the DOE Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (here after referred to as the Laboratory). However, this is the first year that the Contractor's fee is totally performance-based utilizing the same Critical Outcomes. This document describes the critical outcomes, objectives, performance indicators, expected levels of performance, and the basis for the evaluation of the Contractor's performance for the period October 1, 1998 through September 30, 1999, as required by Clauses entitled ''Use of Objective Standards of Performance, Self Assessment and Performance Evaluation'' and ''Performance Measures Review'' of the Contract DE-ACO6-76RL01830. Furthermore, it documents the distribution of the total available performance-based fee and the methodology set for determining the amount of fee earned by the Contractor as stipulated within the causes entitled ''Estimated Cost and Annual Fee,'' ''Total Available Fee'' and ''Allowable Costs and Fee.'' In partnership with the Contractor and other key customers, the Department of Energy (DOE) Headquarters (HQ) and Richland Operations Office (RL) has defined four critical outcomes that serve as the core for the Contractor's performance-based evaluation and fee determination. The Contractor also utilizes these outcomes as a basis for overall management of the Laboratory.

    techniques to do arithmetic operations and practical rules to solve commercial and financial questions. The objective of this research is to further investigate the study of abacus schools and books, in order to recover and highlight the role held by the abacus phenomenon in the origins of the “accounting art” and, in general, the role of the “abacus tradition” for the economic and social development of the society during the medieval and renaissance period. To achieve this goal, the study relies upon some evidences from Tuscany (Italy between XIII and XVI century. By combining theoretical and empirical insights, the analysis points out the contribution the abacus tradition has given to the better development of public life in the city-republic during the medieval and renaissance period, that is to say to the best and most effective exercise of duty and civic right. This contribution has been the basis to the growing interest shown towards the abacus culture by the then city-republic authorities.La presente ricerca indaga sulle “origini” dell’arte contabile tendente a memorizzare i comportamenti economici. In particolare, essa esamina i primi “ambienti” specifici predisposti e organizzati per l’insegnamento delle conoscenze contabili e i “mezzi” di studio per il loro trasferimento: le scuole e i libri d’abaco. Diffusisi prevalentemente in Italia tra il XIII ed il XVI secolo, essi avevano il principale scopo di trasmettere quelle conoscenze generalmente definite di “matematica pratica”, quali le tecniche per eseguire le operazioni aritmetiche e le regole pratiche per la risoluzione di problemi commerciali e finanziari.L’obiettivo della ricerca è quello di approfondire lo studio delle scuole e dei libri d’abaco, evidenziandone il ruolo rivestito nella “genesi” della contabilità per le aziende e, quindi, nel più generale sviluppo socio-economico in epoca medioevale e nei primi secoli del Rinascimento.A tal fine, la ricerca si avvale

  4. From traditional to modern fee systems.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bilitewski, Bernd

    2008-12-01

    This paper deals with the environmentally important issue regarding how best to motivate citizens to reduce their individual waste production. The paper discusses the pros and cons of the various financial incentives incorporated into the waste charging mechanism, pay-as-you-throw (PAYT). Pay-as-you-throw breaks with the tradition of paying for waste services through general blanket taxes or levies in the form of flat rates in that households are required to pay individually adjusted fees in the same way as water and electricity bills are calculated on an individual consumption basis. This difference is achieved through the interplay of three principal components which mark the technical implementation of PAYT: identification as a vehicle to attain accountability, measurement of the generated waste and/or corresponding services, and unit pricing as the basis for individual charges proportional to the extent of the obtained services. However, any motivating factor for inducing citizens to dispose of their recyclable discards and residual waste must be supported by a well developed collection infrastructure, good media information and an appropriate, transparent charging policy. Of particular importance is the use of a multi-tiered charge model, i.e., the charging of a fixed minimum fee plus certain variable components payable in respect of the service structure. The introduction of a basic charge, albeit reducing the intensity of the incentives created by the PAYT system, ensures that certain fixed costs for the provision of waste services will be covered independently from the actual waste developments and, at the same time, minimises the temptation to attempt to bypass the system. Such an arrangement for the waste charges neither contradicts the principle of pay-as-you-throw nor does it impair the waste diversion for which it is implemented. Waste statistics and figures representing the waste charging situation in Germany indicate that there is a relatively good

  5. Health worker perspectives on user fee removal in Zambia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Carasso Barbara S

    2012-10-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background User fees for primary care services were removed in rural districts in Zambia in 2006. Experience from other countries has suggested that health workers play a key role in determining the success of a fee removal policy, but also find the implementation of such a policy challenging. The policy was introduced against a backdrop of a major shortage in qualified health staff. Methods As part of a larger study on the experience and effect of user fee removal in Zambia, a number of case studies at the facility level were conducted. As part of these, quantitative and qualitative data were collected to evaluate health workers’ satisfaction and experiences in charging and non-charging facilities. Results Our findings show that health-care workers have mixed feelings about the policy change and its consequences. We found some evidence that personnel motivation was higher in non-charging facilities compared to facilities still charging. Yet it is unclear whether this effect was due to differences in the user fee policy or to the fact that a lot of staff interviewed in non-charging facilities were working in mission facilities, where we found a significantly higher motivation. Health workers expressed satisfaction with an apparent increase in the number of patients visiting the facilities and the removal of a deterring factor for many needy patients, but also complained about an increased workload. Furthermore, working conditions were said to have worsened, which staff felt was linked to the absence of additional resources to deal with the increased demand or replace the loss of revenue generated by fees. Conclusion These findings highlight the need to pay attention to supply-side measures when removing demand-side barriers such as user fees and in particular to be concerned about the burden that increased demand can place on already over-stretched health workers.

  15. Consumer Perception of Environmental Harm and Willingness to Pay Environmental Handling Fees

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Calvin Lakhan

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available This study undertook a critical examination of the relationship between perception of environmental harm and consumer willingness to pay for environmental handling fees (EHF. This analysis was supplemented by asking study participants to indicate under what circumstances (and for what materials they believe a visible fee is appropriate. This study found that there is a statistically significant correlation between willingness to pay environmental handling fees and the perceived environmental harm of the product on which the fee is applied. For items that respondents viewed as “innocuous to the environment” (i.e., “keyboards and mice”, they were relatively unwilling to pay an environmental handling fee. Conversely, for the full range of hazardous waste materials, consumers expressed a willingness to pay EHFs. With respect to fee visibility, respondents indicated that they preferred visible fees (at the sticker for products that they perceived to be dangerous. There is a strong correlation between perceived environmental harm and whether fees should be visible. Consumers are not necessarily averse to paying an eco fee on products (be they hazardous waste, electronic waste, etc., but their willingness to do so is almost entirely a function of whether they believe the product is environmentally burdensome. It is the recommendation of this study that promotion and education campaigns for environmental handling fees, particularly those surrounding waste electronics, place greater emphasis on environmental consequences of improper disposal.

    Full Text Available Co-opting physicians to regulate Fee-for-Service (FFS payment is more feasible and simpler to administer than capitation, Diagnosis-Related Groups (DRGs and pay-for-performance. The key lies in designing and revising the fee schedule, which not only defines and sets the fee for each item, but also the conditions of billing. Adherence to these regulations must be strictly audited in order to control volume and costs, and to assure quality. The fee schedule requires periodic revisions on an item-by-item basis in order to maintain balance among the providers, to list new drugs, devices and equipment, and to reflect the lower market prices of existing ones. Implementing the fee schedule will facilitate the control of balance billing and extra billing, and the introduction of more sophisticated methods of payment in the future.

The fee schedule requires periodic revisions on an item-by-item basis in order to maintain balance among the providers, to list new drugs, devices and equipment, and to reflect the lower market prices of existing ones. Implementing the fee schedule will facilitate the control of balance billing and extra billing, and the introduction of more sophisticated methods of payment in the future.

    This study demonstrates holding condition of CT by medical institution classification and by season, and examination fee in Korea currently to quantitatively understand frequency of examination region by change of CT equipment, domestic growing trend and change of distribution and using rate. Recent 10 years of CT holding condition by medical institution classification (Tertiary hospital, General hospital, Hospital, Clinic, Dental hospital, Dental clinic, Hospitalized health center) and by year (2003-2012), and CT examination fee of distribution of medical institution by year is surveyed. The holding ratio of Tertiary hospital level and General hospital level is 32.7% in 2003 and 33.0% in 2012. Whereas, Hospital and Clinic level is 74.2% in 2003 and 66.8% in 2012, which takes approximately 70%. Based on data in 2012, it is 82.2% of total examination fee in Tertiary hospital and General hospital, while 17.5% in hospital and clinic. CT holding rate of Hospital level is increasing, while Clinic level is decreasing. Approximately 80% of CT examination fee is claimed by Tertiary hospital and General hospital. Therefore, there is a significant correlation between CT holding condition of medical institution classification and examination fee. Particularly, correlation between CT holding number of Tertiary hospital and examination fee is significant (p< .001). The more CT holding number, the higher the amount claimed examination fee.

    Bangkok's fee-charging Integrated Family Planning and Parasite Control Program (FPPC) is implemented by the Population and Community Development Association (PDA) and has grown from serving 36 schools and raising about US$1500 in 1976 to serving 231 schools and 200 factories and raising over US$75,000 in 1984. In addition to promoting health, the program aims at instilling a lifetime commitment to sensible health and family practices in the community. This urban program has been implemented in conjunction with a rural FPPC program through the financial and technical support of JOICFP, since 1976. Prior to that, PDA provided only family planning services. PDA is currently Thailand's largest private, non-profit organization involved in health care, appropriate technology, refugee assistance, water supply, agricultural marketing, as well as family planning and parasite control. The FPPC program works to mobilize the community to offer its support. Community involvement begins with the management of the program. Another community involvement comes from medical professionals from the local medical university who participate in the program for a fraction of their fees. Community-based family planning volunteers distribute contraceptives throughout their areas. The community also actively supports the FPPC program financially by paying fees. To communicate the benefits that people can derive from the services it offers, Bangkok's Urban FPPC program utilizes sophisticated marketing techniques such as advertising, direct mail, and a variety of public relations efforts. Family planning is publicly promoted in vasectomy festivals held each year throughout Bangkok. Married men are offered vasectomies free of charge if they have had 2 or more children. Exhibitions on parasite control and other health-related topics are also featured together with the sale of promotional items. Many of the program's activities have become major media events. Much of the credit is due to the

  15. Abnormal Audit Fees and Audit Opinion–Further Evidence from China’s Capital Market

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Zanchun Xie; Chun Cai; Jianming Ye

    2010-01-01

    The existing literature on audit opinion shopping provides inconsistent evidence on whether such shopping has any association with abnormal audit fees. In this paper, we hypothesize that firms engage in audit opinion shopping and pay an abnormal audit fee only when their degree of accounting quality is low. To examine the issue, we group firms on the basis of their change in return on assets(ROA), and show that abnormal audit fees improve audit opinions only among firms that engage local auditors and have a low degree of ROA, but report a large increase in ROA, especially when the ROA change is the result of abnormal accruals. We find no association between abnormal audit fees and audit opinion improvement for other firms.

    Lewis, M A; Parker, C

    1991-06-01

    User fees and other forms of copayment for health care are becoming of increasing interest to policymakers in developing countries. As indigenous populations continue to expand in response to current and historically high fertility, and government resources become constrained due to macroeconomic circumstances, publicly provided health care is being squeezed financially. Most developing countries have committed their governments to either providing for all health care or at least ensuring that all citizens have access to health care regardless of ability to pay. This has translated in most contexts into blanket coverage for the entire population financed and generally provided by the government. Recent periods of slow growth, high debt burdens and restricted spending on high recurrent cost sectors, such as health care under International Monetary Fund and other donor agreements have reduced many developing countries' budgets and often the real value of health expenditures. The costs of inputs (personnel, drugs and consumables), however, have not declined and quality or quantity have been necessarily reduced. At the same time, options for financial relief outside the tax system have become of increasing interest to financially constrained governments. User charges are straightforward, easily understood and can in theory be profitable in the short term. From a fairness perspective, they also charge those who actually use the health system. Their major drawback for policymakers is the potential for undermining equity in the health system.

    Full Text Available The paper seeks to discuss an overview on the advanced fee fraud offences as well as cybercrime in Nigerian. The aims of the paper focus on discussing the advanced fee fraud under the related provisions of Advanced Fee Fraud Act 2006 on the success of the law in addressing the practices of crimes in relation to information technology. The paper also discusses the cybercrimes in Nigeria with a brief look out on the Cybercrime (Prohibition and Prevention Act 2015. Further, it also aims at examining the application of the law in the fraud offences which raises an issue of the regulatory framework of the cybercrime. The methodology adopted by the paper is doctrinal approach method wherein both primary and secondary sources of data were analysed, particularly the local laws and other relevant documents. The finding of the paper reveals that the relevant section of the in the Advanced Fee Fraud Act that deals with electronic communication has not been invoked. This is because the discussed relevant law under the advanced fee fraud did not in any away deal with cases concerning electronic communication under section 13. The paper recommends that there is a need to strengthen the adequacy of the legal framework on the Cybercrimes so as to checkmate such practices in Nigeria.

    2013-12-01

    Tourism is a financing mechanism considered by many donor-funded marine conservation initiatives. Here we assess the potential role of visitor entry fees, in generating the necessary revenue to manage a marine protected area (MPA), established through a Global Environmental Facility Grant, in a temperate region of Chile. We assess tourists' willingness to pay (WTP) for an entry fee associated to management and protection of the MPA. Results show 97 % of respondents were willing to pay an entrance fee. WTP predictors included the type of tourist, tourists' sensitivity to crowding, education, and understanding of ecological benefits of the MPA. Nature-based tourists state median WTP values of US$ 4.38 and Sun-sea-sand tourists US$ 3.77. Overall, entry fees could account for 10-13 % of MPA running costs. In Chile, where funding for conservation runs among the weakest in the world, visitor entry fees are no panacea in the short term and other mechanisms, including direct state/government support, should be considered.

  16. Behavior of audit fees in the audit firm or partner changes

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this study was to identify if the behavior of audit fees are affected when the partner or audit firm change for the period 2010 to 2013. For this, an empirical model was developed and hypotheses based on the international and national literature about determinants of audit fees and audit firm rotation. The hypothesis of the study sought to observe the discount on the initial year relationship between the audited company and the audit firm, the fees in change of audit partner and the differences in the type of audit firm change, whether big- Four or non-Big Four. In addition to the variables incorporated to the assumptions, the model features eight control variables: total assets, subsidiaries, foreign subsidiaries, general liquidity, big-four, inherent risk, loss and restructuring operations. Data analysis technique used was the regression model with panel data. From the fixed effects model, it was observed that the company's asset size, liquidity and the type of firm that performs the audit contribute to increase the value of the fees paid by the audited companies. It wasn't possible to get significant evidence about discounted value of the audit fees, either in the audit firm or partner changes.
