Both under- and over-treatment of communicable diseases are public bads. But efforts to decrease one run the risk of increasing the other. Using rich experimental data on household treatment-seeking behavior in Kenya, we study the implications of this tradeoff for subsidizing life-saving antimalarials sold over-the-counter at retail drug outlets. We show that a very high subsidy (such as the one under consideration by the international community) dramatically increases access, but nearly half of subsidized pills go to patients without malaria. We study two ways to better target subsidized drugs: reducing the subsidy level and introducing rapid malaria tests over-the-counter.
Nonlinear optics is a topic of much current interest that exhibits a great diversity. This is due to the technological potentials of certain nonlinear optical effects for photonic based technologies. Many NLO crystals grown by mixing amino acids with various organic and inorganic acids have been reported in the literature. Hence, glycine mixed semi-organic material will be of special interest as a fundamental building block to develop many complex crystals with improved NLO properties. In this context, the present work it is attempted to grow NLO active Triglycine phosphate [(NH2CH2COOH)3H3PO4](TGP) crystal from aqueous solution at room temperature by slow evaporation method. The geometry, intermolecular hydrogen bonding and harmonic vibrational wavenumbers of TGP was investigated with the help of B3LYP density functional theory (DFT) methods. Natural Bond Orbital (NBO) analysis confirms the occurrence of strong intermolecular N-H...O hydrogen bond. Second harmonic frequency generation was examined by Kurtz and Perry powder test. Theoretical first order hyperpolarizability value was calculated.

We parameteraized and validated the Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) for major watersheds feeding the coastal wetlands. According to the downscaled GCM outputs for the next 50 years, we simulated the water discharges from the watersheds of Rio Grande de Loiza and Rio Culebrinas in 2011 - 2060.
Big data isn’t just a technology it’s a business strategy for capitalizing on information resources. Big Data is data whose scale, diversity, and complexity require new architecture, techniques, algorithms, and analytics to manage it and extract value and hidden knowledge from it.“A massive volume of both structured and unstructured data that is so large that it's difficult to process with traditional database and software techniques.” Big Data has become a valuable resource and mechanism for the practitioners and researchers to explore the value of data sets in all kinds of business scenarios and scientific investigations. New computing platforms such as cloud computing, mobile Internet, social network are driving the innovations of big data. From industry perspective, IBM, SAP, Oracle, Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, and other leading software and internet service companies have also launched their own innovation initiatives around big data.
Experts predict that the climate change will affect all natural and human systems. Historical climate records show changes in average and extreme temperatures, as well as an increase in annual climate variability; this changes can affect all continents of our planet in different ways and the high levels of poverty in some regions can worsen the impacts of climate change. In addition, families who are dedicated to making agriculture and owning small land units directly dependent on its production to keep your family economy. The purpose of this research was to identify levels of vulnerability of coffee farming families in four countries of the Mesoamerican Region (Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador and Mexico), because coffee is an important livelihood for thousands of families in this region. In order to know the response of crops to projected changes, the state of their resources and ultimately the strategies that they can implement to minimize the impact of climate change, this research was done using climate models to project the coffee climate suitability and the exposure in this regions; also qualitative tools were combined under the focus on livelihoods and resources of families to identify the vulnerability level.
