Public confidence plays an important role in sustaining financial system stability. In normal times the regulation and supervision of banks, the promotion and use of standards of sound business and financial practice, central bank actions, explicit deposit protection and an effective bank closure mechanism all help to reduce the adverse consequences of a financial crisis emanating from bank failures. It is understood that banks, like other firms, will fail1 and the likelihood of this happening is higher when risks in a particular banking concern are not managed appropriately, bubbles in certain markets burst or financial markets are very fragile due to either domestic or foreign reasons. In almost all circumstances private sector solutions, such as rights issues or mergers, should be pursued in the first instance to deal with problem or failing banks, as in most cases they can limit the pressure on the financial system safety net (FSN). However, when problems become systemic governments tend to play a much more active role and call upon the agencies that make up the FSN to undertake extraordinary measures. Intervention can take a variety of forms. As such, there is a clear need for officials to undertake coherent contingency planning, financial risk assessment and crisis management. A significant development on that front has been the introduction of financial stability forums in the form of committees in individual countries to oversee agencies within the official safety net and improve how they govern macro-prudential and micro-prudential issues (Nier et al 2011).2 However, financial stability committees are not new and the reinvigoration of a formal oversight body is unlikely to fulfil all that is expected of it. This gives rise to an expectations gap, which we explore.

The work to improve bank crisis management and resolution frameworks is ongoing in several jurisdictions worldwide after the ﬁnancial crisis revealed serious shortcomings in the respective regimes. The development of an effective framework is particularly challenging in the EU. This complexity arises owing to the objective of achieving stability in a highly integrated ﬁnancial system, where the competent authorities maintain their ﬁduciary responsibility towards the respective national taxpayers. This article provides an overview of the current European initiatives to meet this challenge, presenting an assessment from a central banking perspective. In the aftermath of the ﬁnancial crisis, the major overhaul of the regulatory framework – both at the global and the EU level – consists of several different elements. Much of the reform focuses on crisis prevention, with a view to preventing serious problems from emerging in the ﬁnancial sector. This includes, inter alia, regulatory steps to improve the supervision of the ﬁnancial sector (e.g. by reinforcing macroprudential oversight), to strengthen the overall resilience of banks (e.g. Basel III), to bring currently unregulated or under-regulated sectors under the scope of regulation (e.g. work related to shadow banking) and to reduce opaqueness in some ﬁnancial transactions (e.g. central clearing of OTC derivatives).
• This task is not yet tagged. Jane wants to sell her Subaru Forester and does research online to find other cars for sale in her area. She checks on craigslist.com and finds 22 Subaru Foresters recently listed, along with their mileage (in miles), age (in years), and listed price (in dollars). (Collected on June 6th, 2012 for the San Francisco Bay Area.) She examines the scatterplot of price versus age and determines that a linear model is appropriate. She finds the equation of the least squares regression equation: predicted price = 24, 247.56 − 1482.06 age. a. What variable is the explanatory (independent) variable and what are the units it is measured in? What variable is the response (dependent) variable and what are the units it is measured in? b. What is the slope of the least squares regression line and what are its units? c. Interpret the slope of the least squares regression line in the context of the problem, discussing what the slope tells you about how price and age are related. Use appropriate units in your answer. d. What is the y-intercept of the least squares regression line? Interpret the y-intercept in the context of the problem, including appropriate units. Commentary This problem could be used as a lesson or an assessment. It is important to emphasize that regression lines always have context in statistics and that we can understand the importance of slope by thinking about “rise over run” using units from the context. It is also a good place to remind them that while slope always has an important meaning in a regression model, the yintercept may not, though in this example it does. The US News and World Report website lists the average national price of a 2012 (age = 0) Subaru Forester to be a range of $20,505 to $29,411 depending on the features ( http://usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/carstrucks/Subaru_Forester/prices/ ).
A new model for WiMAX coverage and capacity performances evaluation is presented in this paper. This model is capable to simply estimate performances on downlink radio channel (from base station to user terminal equipment), assuming that all users generate the same amount of traffic and that they are uniformly spread over the cell area. This paper presents also results from a WiMAX trial carried out in 3.5 GHz band. One of the trial objectives was to assess Erceg propagation model reliability in this frequency band. The result is that Erceg model can be used for performance evaluation at this stage. Simulation results using the proposed model, with Erceg propagation model, show good performances for a WiMAX system. This standard is capable to deliver a high spectral efficiency in very different propagation scenarios, with a cell radius ranging from 1 km (dense urban indoor reception) to 6 km (rural outdoor reception). Keywords: WiMAX, Erceg, 3.5 GHz band, Performances, Coverage, Capacity.
Leveraging 802.16e WiMAX™ Technology in License-Exempt Bands Wireless operators, public agencies, and enterprises can now adopt the latest WiMAX technology without securing licensed spectrum Monica Paolini Senza Fili Consulting November, 2009 License-exempt spectrum bands make it possible for operators who do not have access to licensed spectrum to deploy wireless broadband networks. Traditionally vendors have developed specific solutions for licenseexempt operators, often based on proprietary technology that limits the flexibility and upgradability of their networks. While often positioned as a mobile broadband technology that operates in licensed bands, 802.16e WiMAX can also support fixed and nomadic services, and vertical applications in a range of frequencies up to 6 GHz, including license-exempt bands such as the 5.x GHz band and, in the US, the lightly licensed 3.65 GHz band. With Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.16e WiMAX, license-exempt operators have access to the most advanced wireless broadband technology on the market today and can take advantage of the same performance, ecosystem, and volume of scale that incumbent, nationwide wireless operators with licensed-spectrum can. As 802.16e WiMAX products for license-exempt bands are introduced in the market, operators need to know what the value proposition of using 802.16e WiMAX compared to alternative solutions is. How do they stand to gain from a technology that was developed to support mobility? Do they need the extra features that 802.16e WiMAX offers? This paper addresses these questions by looking at operators’ requirements and how 802.16e WiMAX meets them.
Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale (ASRS-v1.1) Symptom Checklist Instructions The questions on the back page are designed to stimulate dialogue between you and your patients and to help confirm if they may be suffering from the symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Description: The Symptom Checklist is an instrument consisting of the eighteen DSM-IV-TR criteria. Six of the eighteen questions were found to be the most predictive of symptoms consistent with ADHD. These six questions are the basis for the ASRS v1.1 Screener and are also Part A of the Symptom Checklist. Part B of the Symptom Checklist contains the remaining twelve questions. Instructions: Symptoms 1. Ask the patient to complete both Part A and Part B of the Symptom Checklist by marking an X in the box that most closely represents the frequency of occurrence of each of the symptoms. 2. Score Part A. If four or more marks appear in the darkly shaded boxes within Part A then the patient has symptoms highly consistent with ADHD in adults and further investigation is warranted. 3. The frequency scores on Part B provide additional cues and can serve as further probes into the patient’s symptoms. Pay particular attention to marks appearing in the dark shaded boxes. The frequency-based response is more sensitive with certain questions. No total score or diagnostic likelihood is utilized for the twelve questions. It has been found that the six questions in Part A are the most predictive of the disorder and are best for use as a screening instrument. Impairments 1. Review the entire Symptom Checklist with your patients and evaluate the level of impairment associated with the symptom. 2. Consider work/school, social and family settings. 3. Symptom frequency is often associated with symptom severity, therefore the Symptom Checklist may also aid in the assessment of impairments. If your patients have frequent symptoms, you may want to ask them to describe how these problems have affected the ability to work, take care of things at home, or get along with other people such as their spouse/significant other.
