Received: 3 August 2006  Revised: 1 December 2006  Accepted: 4 December 2006  

Abstract  An improved procedure for determination of the residual DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl) free radical concentration was proposed taking into account the absorbance of both DPPH free radicals and DPPH nonradical (1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazine) stable form. The calculated residual DPPH free radical concentrations were compared with those obtained from a calibration curve and variation coefficients below 10 % were found.

Keywords  DPPH determination - antioxidant activity - spectrophotometric assay - free radicals

Making the Poor More Resilient to Future Crises
By the end of 2010, the food, fuel and financial crises will have pushed more than 200 million people into poverty. World Bank Chief Economist Justin Lin said that governments can play an important role in alleviating the impact of crises through interventions such as social protection programs that help the poor cope.

World Bank Group Debars Macmillan Limited for Corruption
The World Bank Group has debarred Macmillan Limited, a U.K. company, declaring the company ineligible to be awarded Bank-financed contracts for a period of six years in the wake of the company's admission of bribery payments relating to a Trust Fund-supported education project in Southern Sudan. The eight-year proposed debarment was reduced due to early admission of corrupt payments, and can be reduced to three years subject to continued cooperation.

World Bank Gives Outstanding Public Service Award to Yemen's Deputy Prime Minister
The 2010 Jit Gill Memorial Award for Outstanding Public Service was awarded to Abdulkarim Ismail Al-Arhabi, Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs and Minister for Planning and International Cooperation of Yemen. The award, established in 2004 in memory of Bank staff member Jit Gill, honors the recipient's track record of public service, proven leadership, and promotion of honesty, integrity and accountability in public service.

Yes Africa Can: Success Stories from a Dynamic Continent
The economic landscape of sub-Saharan Africa has changed dramatically since the mid-1990s, with stagnation giving way to dynamism in a broad swath of countries. A new study "Yes Africa Can: Success Stories from a Dynamic Continent" aims to change the dialogue on the continent by illustrating development successes at work. The study highlights, among other examples, increasing mango exports in Mali, the specialty coffee market in Rwanda, and a mobile-accessible electronic payment system in Kenya. Read More
 
 
Is Kenya's Rising Population Good for Economic Development?
Kenya's population has doubled over the last 25 years, to about 40 million people, and rapid population growth is set to continue. According to recent UN projections, Kenya's population will reach about 85 million by 2050. This demographic and geographic transformation will play a key role in determining Kenya's social stability, which remains fragile after the post-election violence in early 2008. Read More
 
 
Latin America Gets Greater Voice at World Bank after Voting Rights Increase
Latin America will have a greater voice and influence in World Bank decisions, following an increase in the voting rights of developing countries during the Bank's Spring Meetings. Most countries in the region saw their voting power increase, with Mexico and Brazil getting the biggest boost. The World Bank Development Committee expanded the voting share of developing countries by 3.13%, increasing their collective share to 47.19%. Read More
 
 
Indigenous Peoples Still Among Poorest in World, but Progress Reported in Some Countries
Indigenous peoples worldwide continue to suffer from higher poverty, lower education, and a greater incidence of disease and discrimination than other groups, according to a new World Bank study. The study shows how success at achieving sustained growth and poverty reduction has helped indigenous peoples achieve better poverty, health, and education outcomes in some Asian countries. However, a poverty gap still persists between indigenous and non-indigenous populations, and while the gap is narrowing in China, it is stable or widening in most other countries. Read More
 
 
World Bank Helps Countries Go Greener
Climate change is a major threat to hard-earned development gains around the world. The World Bank is helping developing countries move to a greener development path through assistance that increases their resilience to climate risks and takes advantage of climate finance, private sector resources and markets. International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) financing for climate-affected sectors reached $9.3 billion in the fiscal year 2009. The year also marked an all-time record in new renewable energy and energy efficiency financing of $1.3 billion from IBRD; more than double that of fiscal year 2008. Read More
 
 
Better Statistical Systems Help Tailor Poverty Reduction Programs in Latin America
Meaningful and lasting reductions in poverty require a clear understanding of the scope of the challenge—something that is impossible without accurate and timely data about populations and living standards. The World Bank has worked with countries in Latin America and the Caribbean for more than a decade to develop or improve collection and analysis of statistics. These efforts have helped tailor poverty reduction efforts to countries' needs. At least 20 countries can now correctly estimate poverty data, and more than 450 household surveys are included in a regional database. Read More
 
 
 
 
 
A Better Way to Estimate HIV Prevalence
Most developing countries base their estimates of HIV prevalence on surveys of women receiving prenatal care, an imperfect information source that doesn't represent the population as a whole. Large-scale household surveys on living standards, which are specifically designed to be representative, rarely collect detailed information on HIV prevalence. In this paper, Oleksiy Ivaschenko and Peter Lanjouw propose using statistical techniques to combine the traditional data with household survey data in order to produce better estimates of HIV prevalence. Read about this and other recent studies in the latest edition of the World Bank research e-Newsletter. Read More

Transforming Morocco: Reform Plan Builds on Recent Development Gains
Morocco's sound economic management in recent years has yielded strong growth and investment-grade status. Morocco is now addressing persistent social problems by reducing absolute poverty rates, expanding access to drinking water, and ensuring a high rate of immunization. Today, 84% of Moroccans have access to drinking water, up from 65% since 2001. Primary school enrollment has increased to 93.5% in 2007, and 94% have immunization coverage. Read More
 
 
Egypt: Sustaining Growth Through Reform
Egypt has sustained its agenda of widespread economic reforms, not only related to markets, but to health, education, transport and infrastructure. The government of Egypt is improving living conditions for its people through a friendlier investment climate and strong economic performance. Real gross domestic product growth increased from an average 3.5% during 2001-04 to 7.1% in 2007. Such growth translated into job creation and a reduction in the unemployment rate. Read More
 
 
Ghana Land Administration Project Improves Ease of Land Registration
Ghana's economic development has faced severe challenges that include difficulty accessing land, insecurity of land tenure and mismanagement of the nation's land resources. The Land Administration Project (LAP) was designed to undertake land policy and institutional reforms and to develop land administration pilots which will lay the foundation for a land sector that is fair, efficient, cost-effective and ensures land tenure security. Significant progress has been made; the time it takes to register a deed has been decreased from 36 months to two months. Efficiency gains like these are expected to be increased further by re-engineering processes and systems. Read More
 
 
Reforming Ethiopia's Justice System
The justice system in Ethiopia has been characterized by delays in dispensation so severe that rights granted by the constitution could not be implemented. Today, thanks to the Justice System Reform Program, the annual clearance rate of cases is above 80% in federal and sub-national supreme courts. A "real-time dispatch" system has been put in place, allowing judgment and sentencing to be undertaken within one day in petty offences. The program has also helped increase the use of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, and modern technology such as video conference facilities and web-based services have been introduced at the Supreme Court.

Indonesia's Community-Driven Development
With poverty alleviation among Indonesia's highest priorities, the country has centered its focus on community-driven development programs. The overall National Program for Community Empowerment provides financial support to the communities to allow direct and transparent funding of poverty alleviation activities. Through this approach, 38,000 houses have been rehabilitated and reconstructed in Aceh, Nias, Special Province of Yogyakarta and Central Java. From 1998 to 2006, the program reached more than 50,000 urban and rural villages and benefited more than 11 million families. Read More
 
 
Moving Out of Poverty in Northeast Brazil
Unequal distributions of land and income, poor soils, and severe drought have contributed to a vicious cycle of poverty in Northeast Brazil, with about 39% of poor rural families living on only $1.48 per day. The Rural Poverty Reduction Program promoted decentralization of decision-making, direct transfer of funds, and involvement of local authorities and civil society. The projects are implemented with a community-driven development approach, fostering transparency and participation. The program has financed almost 60,000 small-scale investments in basic infrastructure from 1993 to 2009, and contributed to reducing poverty among 13 million people.

Brazil's Public Services Get Boost from Better Debt Management
Confronted by a large debt burden at the end of the 1990s, Brazil crafted a new approach to debt management that has not only yielded billions of dollars in savings in debt service payments, but also set a new foundation for economic strength that helped insulate Brazil from the severity of the global financial crisis. The savings that resulted from the World Bank-supported reforms are being used to broaden and increase the quality of public services across Brazil, and are considered an example of best practice. The improvement in public debt management also has helped protect Brazil from the severity of the global financial crisis. Read More
 
 
e-Procurement in the Brazilian State of Minas Gerais
The Brazilian State of Minas Gerais has enacted more efficient procurement practices and now relies on quality data for enhanced controls and a managed procurement framework. This has yielded savings to the government of $77 million a year since 2005, and a 33% reduction in the cost of carrying out procurement. Data on civil works contracts are now available online for public review, improving transparency.

Today, the percentage of national and provincial roads in good condition has increased to 91%, allowing Argentina to take full advantage of high commodity prices. Read More
 
 
Opening India's Rural Hinterlands: Gujarat State Highway Improvements Revive Region
Ten years ago, formerly fast-growing Gujarat Province faced economic decline; poor road conditions were made worse by a growing number of vehicles on the roads, and growth slowed. But a highway project financed by the World Bank helped turn this rural area around by upgrading and maintaining roads. As a result, businesses thrived, agricultural production increased, students and teachers attended school more easily and frequently, and health improved as transport to and from Gujarat Province became faster and safer. It is estimated the project has increased employment rates by 7%. Read More

I have my concerns. History will be the judge.

Per the Obama Administration's private thinking: I see Israel
attacking Iran. Then Iran draws in the US. Then Obama has cover.

I pray it doesn't happen. I pray we bring all of our boys and girls
home ASAP from that barbaric region. Let them destroy themselves.

Please elaborate on said *private thinking.*

Don't worry, JL... we're not going to attack Iran, unless they attack Israel.
Kinda like a NATO agreement we have with Israel.
And as long as we're addicted to their oil teet, we're going to continue *hangin' out* in
that region.
I know many hate Carter, but had Reagan not stopped Carter's plan to get the US energy
independent by 2000, would be a different world. Iraq never would've happened... and Iran
wouldn't be as powerful, since Iraq always kept Iran in check. Once Bush attacked Iraq,
Iran became the big power in the region.
What Israel does... who knows... but Israel won't attack the Iran nuclear facilities,
unless they KNOW they can really destroy them. And at this point, from what I've read,
Iran has put them so deep underground, any attack wouldn't work.
Besides, Israel will be too busy, as it looks like Iran & Syria are moving to provoke
Israel into some kind of war this summer... they're sending tons of long-range arms to
Hezbollah. Read about it: http://bit.ly/bDjvMY

As we've seen....

Pursue short sighted foreign policy, give weapons and aid to "the
enemy of my enemy", support brutal dictatorships to scratch the itch
of the moment, support corrupt and self serving monarchies for oil,
star wars on a trumped up pretext, step on toes and stick our fingers
in other peoples eyes and pies gives them reason to want to...

destroy us.

I suppose you can always piss out that old canard about "them" wanting
to destroy us because of our freedoms.

That report is not very impressive. I want to know what kind of
"rockets" and "missiles" they are "piling up" there. More glorified
bottle rockets for another politcal pissing match, or do they have
some real hardware over there now ???

You are dreaming. Carter's plan was unsustainable with $9 barrel. He
wanted to use a carrot & not a stick. Most humans are wasteful and
Americans are no better.

If we elected Anderson there was a chance. It was more stick.

Any energy policy that is not based on developing clean, renewable
sources as a priority is a horse shit policy. Electric and hybrid
cars dont do jack shit. You still have to burn fossil fuels to turn
generators in order to charge batteries. Fossil fuels are a dead
end. An expensive and globally destructive dead end. Orbiting
microwave power transmission satellite systems (MPT) would give us all
the clean power we need. The technology already exists. Once again,
excellent solutions are held up by politics and greed.

Amen....an intelligent response. Only minor question is about Israel...not
so sure they think as clearly anymore...and may be a little more cowboy in
their attitudes....really agree about the "god" the conservatives created
with Reagan....the guy who raised the defecit, destroyed unions, and created
a bunch of messes.....but he did make things good for Goldman Sachs :-)

Glenn, LT is taking Greene's spot as Shonn moves up to be the #1 back
replacing TJ. Tannenbaum himself has said that if the opportunity to
draft Mcknight had not been there, they would not have traded away Leon.
If that is not McKnight taking Leon's spot then I don't know what is.

Ditto, Papa. I don't recall Leon ever showing up out of shape. In fact
he was one of the hardest workers on the team.

I really don't see that happening. The logical roles are Greene as the
ground and pound guy and LT as the speed and receiver out of the
backfield guy. From what I heard LT still has very good speed over the
first 10 or 15 yards.

That spot was created out of necessity because Greene is a big back
who can't catch. Now that we have LT who is about as good a receiving
RB the league has, it really makes no sense to use him that way or for
the Jets to use two guys in virtually the same role.

Interesting... McKnight is getting ground up here, but last Ryan's
commentary on Gholston in spring drills last year were all rosey. I
woud not read too much into this on way or the other. McKnight just
had a bad day. Or may be Rex is getting up to speed on his drill
sargent tactics for Hard Knox :-)

I think McKnight just needs to grow up a bit more. He was probably out
partying after he got drafted instead of getting ready for camp and
had no idea what he was walking into. He also most likely knows there
is a roster spot on the team for him no matter how porrly he shows.
The team has already invested a lot in him and will give him every
chance to succeed while the other guys are more make or break.

Ah, I wouldn't worry about it, gray... yet...
it was only rookie camp.
From what I've read about him, he's got some head case in him.
Frail ego... couldn't deal with the pressure of the Reggie Bush comparisons.
Write messages on his face about money.
If he's capable of growing up, he'll be a player. If not, we'll have to go to plan B.

Maybe someone needs to write a message on his face about hydrating
himself before practice.

I am with you but what kind of moron shows up unfit for camp?

I guarantee that Rex was sending a message to him. Sometimes there is
value in Rex talking to the media. This is a good example.

I really don't see that happening. The logical roles are Greene as the
ground and pound guy and LT as the speed and receiver out of the
backfield guy. From what I heard LT still has very good speed over the
first 10 or 15 yards.

And that would be very typical no imagination lack luster offense. So, you
are going to give an entirely different role to LT? Because that isn't
really what he's done his for his career...he is a running back, and was a
brilliant one. What we need to see is how much gas is left in his tank and
if he can show any endurance which he didn't in recent history. On top of
that, Greene has shown he does not have season long endurance. That is
precisely why some of us questioned these moves....I'm hoping LT will revive
and be a major threat, because I really don't think Greene is going to be
the guy. He will show bursts of great performance followed by time off. OMHO

That spot was created out of necessity because Greene is a big back
who can't catch. Now that we have LT who is about as good a receiving
RB the league has, it really makes no sense to use him that way or for
the Jets to use two guys in virtually the same role.

Then why does it work so well for other teams...tandem backs?????

Leon Washington will play with rod in leg

Posted by Evan Silva on May 2, 2010 6:13 PM ET
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/category/rumor-mill/2.php

Somewhat buried in an Associated Press fluff piece on the Seahawks'
running back corps is a nugget that newly acquired returner/tailback
Leon Washington will have to play this season with a stabilizing rod
in his surgically repaired leg.


Washington suffered a compound leg fracture, breaking both his tibia
and fibula, seven games into last season. The 27-year-old claims to
have resumed running over a month ago, and intends to rejoin practices
at the start of training camp.


On the Saturday of draft weekend, the Jets traded Washington and a
seventh-round pick to Seattle for a fifth-round pick. New York used
the draft choice to select Kentucky fullback John Conner, a.k.a. "The
Terminator."


It's unclear how playing with the rod will affect Washington's
performance, but it doesn't sound good. Jets G.M. Mike Tannenbaum
admitted after the trade that his team's medical staff wasn't sure
Washington would be ready for Week One.


The meager compensation also indicates that the Jets were unconvinced
Washington would regain all of his explosiveness.


While the draft-day risk taken by the Seahawks was worthwhile for such
a dynamic talent, it would seemingly be a surprise if Washington were
his old self to start the season.

buRf, of course they didn't ask him to take a pay cut because they knew
the answer.

The $5MM+ he was guaranteed was a moot point as restructuring doesn't
help in a non-cap season so that leaves $2.25 MM to discuss. His
replacement if a rookie was going to cost the NYJ $500K if a vet $1MM so
we are now down to $1.25 -1.75MM that they could negotiate and still
have savings. The Jets obviously knew what he would be worth on the
market as did he and his agent.

As for the clean break theory. Sorry that is just stupid this is not a
f###ing softball team. It is a team that is 40 years removed from a
Super Bowl. If you bring him to camp & he loses you either cut him or
you have a Pro Bowl guard on the bench. If he wins he is a better player.

I realize that someone felt Faneca's skill set limited what they could
do, especially in short yardage situations, but he could have been cheap
insurance.

Papa, I doubt it. It would be so expensive & cover so little after the
cost of the product that they are probably self-insuring. That the
Cowboys & Pats, whose owners run the league, didn't spend $ this off
season is enough to tell me that they are expecting the worst.

The owners have leverage. I am not sure what the average career is,
vaguely I remember at one time the avg career of an OL is 11 games, so
losing one year is 10% of a career if you play 10 years, 20% if you play
5. Losing a year kills the players. Losing two......

If the union boss has brain he cuts a deal far superior to what Upshaw
did but w/o a strike. He needs to take care of the vets not the draftees
which is really taking care of a few agents.

I just can't believe this was actually picked up as a news story. I
should have been in the news at least 4 or 5 times if this is the
case.
