Benzene is used primarily as a solvent in the chemical & pharmaceutical industries, as a starting material & intermediate in the synthesis of numerous chemicals, & in gasoline. The major U.S. source of benzene is petroleum. Benzene has been previously evaluated in 2-year carcinogenicity studies. In this study, the carcinogenic effects of benzene were studied in the haplo-insufficient p16Ink4a/p19Arf mouse model as part of an ongoing effort to seek improved model systems for toxicology & carcinogenesis studies, especially those that can provide mechanistic information relative to understanding

OECD countries are attaching rising importance to lifelong learning and active employment policies as tools of economic growth and social equity. Effective information and guidance systems are essential to support the implementation of these policies, and all citizens need to develop the skills to self-manage their careers. Yet there are large gaps between these policy goals and the capacity of national career guidance systems. Access to services is limited, particularly for adults. Too often services fail to develop people's career management skills, but focus upon immediate decisions. Traini

Addresses the contribution of nonpoint source (NPS) pollution to the degradation of the quality of the Nationıs waters and the programs initiated by state and local governments in response to the insufficient number of Federally funded programs to abate NPS pollution. Describes particularly effective state and local NPS programs and the methods used to fund them, providing an effective sourcebook for other jurisdictions as they develop their own NPS programs.

Social Security is the federal government¿s largest single program, and as the U.S. population grows older in the coming decades, its cost is projected to increase more rapidly than its revenues. It is projected that under current law, resources dedicated to the program will become insufficient to pay full benefits in 2039. Long-run sustainability for the program could be attained through various combinations of raising taxes and cutting benefits; such changes would also affect the Social Security taxes paid and the benefits received by various groups of people. This study examines a variety

This report assesses the current status of Hungary's innovation system and policies, and identifies where and how the government should focus its efforts to improve the country's innovation capabilities. The report finds that the level of innovation activity and performance in Hungary has remained relatively low by international standards. This is attributable to both lagging innovation capabilities in the business sector and an insufficient contribution of public research organisations to the innovation system. There is a need for more stable governance of the innovation system and a more evi
