American reams: why a ‘paperless world’ still hasn’t happened Old Mohawk paper company lore has it that in 1946, a salesman named George Morrison handed his client in Boston a trial grade of paper so lush and even, so uniform and pure, that the client could only reply: “George, this is one super fine sheet of paper.” And thus Mohawk Superfine was born. This premium paper has been a darling of the printing and design world ever since. “Superfine is to paper what Tiffany’s is to diamonds,” Jessica Helfand, co-founder of Design Observer magazine once said. Animation: Human Population Growth Over All of History Imagine that for every million people on Earth, there was a single dot on a map. In total, that would be about 7,600 dots – representing today’s global population of 7.6 billion. But, what if we went back in time, and watched those dots accumulate over human history? When and where do the first dots appear, and when does population growth ramp up to get to the billions of people that are alive today? The History of Population Growth

Second Bill of Rights The Second Bill of Rights was a list of rights proposed by Franklin D. Roosevelt during his State of the Union Address on January 11, 1944.[1] In his address Roosevelt suggested that the nation had come to recognize, and should now implement, a second "bill of rights". Roosevelt's argument was that the "political rights" guaranteed by the constitution and the Bill of Rights had "proved inadequate to assure us equality in the pursuit of happiness." Roosevelt's remedy was to declare an "economic bill of rights" which would guarantee eight specific rights:

University of Colorado Boulder Fossil fuels are energy resources like coal, oil, and natural gas that were formed after dead plants and animals were buried and exposed to extreme pressure and temperature millions of years ago. Above image provided courtesy of the U.S. Energy Information Administration These charts show how migration is changing our cities In 2015, over a billion people migrated: 244 million went abroad and 763 million moved within their home country. Some boarded planes to start a new job in another country. Some risked their lives in overcrowded boats, fleeing war or famine. And others left the countryside in search of jobs and a better quality of life. What the vast majority have in common is that they ended up moving to a city.

Estimating Option-Implied Probability Distributions for Asset Pricing After interpolation in (K, σ)-space, we obtain enough data points to estimate the implied strike price density functions at each expiry time. To do this we use a computational finance principle developed by Breeden and Litzenberger [4], which states that the probability density function f(K) of the value of an asset at time T is proportional to the second partial derivative of the asset call price C = C(K). We first transform the data to the original domain ((K, C)-space) for each expiry time using the blsprice function: T0 = unique(D.T); S = D.S(1); rf = D.rf(1); for k = 1:numel(T0) newC(:, k) = blsprice(S, fineK, rf, T0(k), sigmaCallSABR(:, k)); end

Modern Monetary Theory is an unconventional take on economic strategy What’s more, his father, John Kenneth Galbraith, was the most famous economist of his generation: a Harvard professor, best-selling author and confidante of the Kennedy family. Jamie has embraced a role as protector and promoter of the elder’s legacy. But if Galbraith stood out on the panel, it was because of his offbeat message. Most viewed the budget surplus as opportune: a chance to pay down the national debt, cut taxes, shore up entitlements or pursue new spending programs. He viewed it as a danger: If the government is running a surplus, money is accruing in government coffers rather than in the hands of ordinary people and companies, where it might be spent and help the economy.

Fossil Fuel Energy Fossil fuels are non-renewable energy sources that formed more than 300 million years ago during the Carboniferous Period - long before dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Fossil fuels are made up of plant and animal matter. When plants and animals died, their bodies decomposed and were buried under layers of earth. Millions of years later we have the three forms of fossil fuel: oil, natural gas and coal. Fossil Fuel Energy - Oil Oil is a thick, black, gooey liquid also called petroleum.
