The Effects of Bank Loan Renegotiation on Corporate Policies and Performance

Christophe Godlewski
I investigate the effects of bank loan renegotiation on firm’s financial and investment policies, and performances. I employ OLS and endogenous switching regime regressions using a large cross-country sample of loans issued and amended on a long-time period. I find that bank loan renegotiation has an economically significant and causal impact on financial policy and performances. Renegotiation provides the firm with additional degrees of freedom and unlocks its economic potential, implying important effects of firm’s...

Cultural models of child disability: perspectives of parents in Malaysia

Jennifer Marshall, Elizabeth Doone & Mindy Price
Background: This study examined parents’ developmental concerns for their children within the context of systems of care in Malaysia. Methods: Focus groups and interviews were conducted in peninsular Malaysia and Borneo. Results: Parents’ perceptions of developmental delay stemmed from three sources: the cultural, resource, and the social environments. Conclusion: There is a need to develop a medical support system in Malaysia that considers a life-course perspective, including prenatal care, screening/diagnosis, and services. This system should...

On-line ethics education for occupational therapy clinician–educators: a single-group pre-/post-test study

Sandra VanderKaay, Lori Letts, Bonny Jung & Sandra E. Moll
Purpose: Ethics education is a critical component of training rehabilitation practitioners. There is a need for capacity-building among ethics educators regarding facilitating ethical decision-making among students. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the utility of an on-line ethics education module for occupational therapy clinician-educators (problem-based learning tutors/clinical placement preceptors/evidence-based practice facilitators). Method: The Knowledge-to-Action Process informed development and evaluation of the module. Clinician–educators (n = 33) viewed the module and reported on its impact on...

Rehabilitation for disabling hearing loss: evaluating the need relative to provision of hearing aids in the public health care system

Vera-Genevey Hlayisi & Lebogang Ramma
Purpose: To determine the demand relative to supply of hearing rehabilitation through hearing aids for those with disabling hearing loss in a public health care setting in South Africa. Methods: Retrospective cross-sectional survey of medical records of all patients were seen at a public hospital (Polokwane Provincial Academic) during 2012–2014, was conducted. Audiological data from 3894 medical folders were accessed and reviewed; thereafter, results were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Results: Of the 3894 medical folders...

ECONOMIC CONSEQUENCES OF THE GROUP OF ENTERPRISES Ciech, Chemos and Grupa Azoty ON THE BASIS OF ECONOMIC ANALYSIS USING MICROECONO- MIC AND MACROECONOMIC DATA

Karolina Molenda, Angelika Trojanowska, Anna Koptynska & Tomasz Prałat
When attempting to analyze the economic performance of enterprises, our team chose companies in the chemical sector. These are: Ciech SA, Chemos SA and Police SA.These companies are potentates in the chemical market, and thriving development ensures them a great importance for the development of the economy.In our work, we analyzed the years 2013, 2014 and 2015, taking into account ROE, ROA, EBIT, CC and many more.The first company that we undertook to analyze is...

Gut microbiota in experimental murine model of Graves’ orbitopathy established in different environments may modulate clinical presentation of disease

Giulia Masetti, Sajad Moshkelgosha, Hedda-Luise Köhling, Danila Covelli, Jasvinder Paul Banga, Utta Berchner-Pfannschmidt, Mareike Horstmann, Salvador J. Diaz-Cano, Gina-Eva Goertz, Sue Plummer, Anja Eckstein, Marian Ludgate, Filippo Biscarini, Julian Marchesi & INDIGO Consortium
Background: Variation in induced models of autoimmunity has been attributed to the housing environment and its effect on the gut microbiota. In Graves' disease (GD), autoantibodies to the thyrotropin receptor (TSHR) cause autoimmune hyperthyroidism. Many GD patients develop Graves' orbitopathy (GO) characterized by orbital tissue remodeling including adipogenesis. Murine models of GD/GO would help delineate pathogenetic mechanisms and although several have been reported most lack reproducibility. A model comprising immunization of female BALBc mice with...

MVAPP – Multivariate analysis application for streamlined data analysis and curation

Magdalena Julkowska, Stephanie Saade, Gaurav Agarwal, Ge Gao, Yveline Pailles, Mitchell Morton, Mariam Awlia & Mark Tester
Modern phenotyping enables the measurement of many phenotypic traits simultaneously, yielding vast amounts of quantitative data that is hard to manage and analyze. This type of data, when adequately examined, could reveal genotype-to-phenotype relationships and meaningful relationships between individual measured traits. Efficient data mining is currently challenging for experimental biologists, as many researchers are limited by their ability to curate, integrate and explore these complex outputs. Additionally, data transparency, accessibility and reproducibility have become important...
