"In recent years an extensive body of literature has emerged on the definition, measurement, and analysis of poverty. Much of this literature focuses on analyzing poverty at the national level, or spatial disaggregation by general categories of urban or rural areas, with adjustments made for regional price differentials. Yet for an individual city attempting to tackle the problems of urban poverty, this level of aggregation is not sufficient for answering specific questions such as where the poor are located in the city, whether there are differences between poor areas, if access to services v

Each year thousands of husbands, wives, sons and daughters are converted by Jehovah’s Witnesses through their so-called free home Bible study. This book tells exactly what to do to rescue them from the JWs. The main point to remember when a loved one first starts getting involved with Jehovah’s Witnesses is to avoid delay. But, unless you are thoroughly versed on the Watchtower Society and well trained as a debater, the JWs will shoot you down on every point. This book helps you: (1) Plan your strategy and learn techniques that work. (2) Collect convincing evidence. (3) Present you

The Evolution of Phylogenetic Systematics aims to make sense of the rise of phylogenetic systematics—its methods, its objects of study, and its theoretical foundations—with contributions from historians, philosophers, and biologists. This volume articulates an intellectual agenda for the study of systematics and taxonomy in a way that connects classification with larger historical themes in the biological sciences, including morphology, experimental and observational approaches, evolution, biogeography, debates over form and function, character transformation, development, and biod

The filing season is also the start of IRS's efforts to ensure the newly filed returns are compliant with the tax laws. The auditor was asked to assess IRS's performance, describe the costs and foregone revenue of administering the economic stimulus payments, and identify any opportunities for improving filing season compliance checks.
