There is strong evidence that the primary determi- nants of T2DM, notably smoking, poor diet, obesity, and physical inactivity are modifiable through self- management activities [2, 12 – 17]. From large clinical trials, such as the American Diabetes Prevention Pro- gram (DPP)  and the Finnish Diabetes Prevention Study (FDPS) [19, 20], there is evidence that lifestyle and weight-loss programs can reduce the incidence of diabetes by up to 58%. The benefits can be enduring ; one study reported a 34% reduction in incidence rates among its intervention group during a 10-year follow-up  and a 4-year study reported sustained weight loss and improved cardiovascular risk factors following intensive lifestyle intervention . Thus, aggressive public policy initiatives have been recom- mended to encourage self-management of lifestyle change . Strong support for these initiatives can be found in a recent systematic review showing that integrated care interventions for people with T2DM (which target self-management and patient-centered, team-based approaches to care) can result in im- provements in a range of clinical and patient-reported

Mathematics games will be used throughout the school year to practice various arithmetic skills. Through games, practice becomes a thinking activity to be enjoyed. The games your child will play in this unit will provide practice with renaming numbers, with addition, and with subtraction. They require very little in the way of materials, so you may play them at home as well.
PFP indexes are usually easy to compute, understand, and interpret. They are therefore often used in economic studies. However, a PFP does not give a global view of productivity. For example, an increase in labour productivity can be outweighed by a decrease in capital productivity so that the TFP actually decreases. TFP takes into account all the inputs and outputs metrics and summarizes the comparison in an overall productivity index. Hence, this gives a more comprehensive picture of productivity. The main challenge is to calculate aggregated outputs and inputs indexes given data availability. Clearly, the outputs and inputs metrics selected impact the results of any productivity analyses. For this reason, care must be taken to select input and output measures that are sufficiently broad and applicable to the analytical questions to be addressed.
enjoins public relations scholars to embrace both positive and normative theories. This concept is often designed to verify the relationship between certain important happening and subsequent deeds stimulated by the happening (Lattimore et al, 2007). Public relations field is a direct consequence of its extraction from multi-disciplines ranging from management, marketing and communication (Grunig et al, 1992). The implication is that, public relations is linked to chains of theories that are believed to be an extension of different disciplines from which public relations takes its roots (Cromb, 2000; Grunig,1993; Pasadeos et al 1991). This background constitutes the preliminary challenge in the search for an appropriate theory of public relations, especially for the purpose of establishing the relationship between public relations, media and peace negotiation, the central theme of this study. However, there could be large number of theories available in the public relations field, for the purpose of this research, this study has to rely on the following theories namely: Balance theory, System Theory, Agenda Setting Theory, Uses and Gratification theory and Excellence theory. These theories were selected because they have the potentials for generating the right guide to explaining the nature of public relations practice in relation to peace building process in the Niger Delta which is the focus of this study. The problem of relationship crisis attendant with the oil resource in the oil rich region presents different facets hence the use of these theories that separately dovetailed into the anchor on which this study is hinged. The selected theories are therefore expected to help point the way to the consequence of using the right or wrong models of public relations practice which by implication may or may not lead to successful peace negotiation in the Niger Delta. The first three have the potential for predicting relationship while the last two are concern with influencers to information consumption. While the first four theories offer secondary support to the theoretical framework of this study, the last, which is Excellence Theory represents the theoretical backbone of this study. The following unit focuses on balance theory.

Type 3: Multiple events temporal questions with temporal expression. Questions that contain two or more events, related by a temporal signal. This sig- nal establishes the order between the events in the question. Moreover, there are one or more tempo- ral expressions in the question. These temporal ex- pressions need to be recognized, resolved and an- notated, and they introduce temporal constraints to the answers of the question. Example: “What did George Bush do after the U.N. Security Council or- dered a global embargo on trade with Iraq in August 90?” In this example, the temporal signal is after and the temporal constraint is “between 8/1/1990 and 8/31/1990”. This question can be divided into the following ones:

This review begins with two studies addressing big themes in American urban history ± urban systems and the lure of suburbia. k.m. bessey , `Scale, structure and dynamics in the United States urban systems, 1850±1990: city size in the lens of region' (D.Des., Harvard University, 2000) argues that the belief of urban analysts in national city-size distributions and power laws such as Zipf 's rank- size rule, has produced generally static studies which ascribe no role to regional primacy in explanations of rank-size stability (or instability) at the national scale. Viewing region as a central driving force in the evolution of urban systems at the national scale, it ®nds that America's urban systems can usefully be described in terms of their increasing variation around a stable modal city-size class, which has not changed in over 100 years. Employing unique time-series data (an historical database of urbanized areas and places in the United States, 1850±1990) for insights into urban structure and evolution at sub-national scales, it traces the trajectory of individual cities through this urban macro-structure revealing the punctuated growth of cities of differing sizes, in differing temporal periods. In similar grand manner, i. mcburnie , `The periphery and the Amer- ican Dream' (Ph.D., Open University, 1999) seeks to understand how and why suburbia and the suburban metropolis have become the only legitimate concep- tions of, and repositories for, the Good Life and the American Way. It contends that they have achieved hegemony because the dominant culture is founded on, and adheres to, an ideology of suburbanism which narrowly delineates the realm of the legitimate for reasons of control. Employing a two-phase analysis, it explores suburbia in twentieth-century America at large in order to elucidate traits and propensities; and at particular moments in time, in order to interrogate speci®cities. In particular, it looks at three periods in three cities: greater Detroit 1893±1929, considering how the suburb was conceived in reaction to the changing condition of the centre; greater Los Angeles, 1929±1978, exploring how and why the dominant culture came to imagine, perceive and experience the periphery as the Promised Land; and greater Houston since 1978, contemplating how the Common Interest Development has facilitated the city's continuing transformation towards Privatopia.
