Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has a major impact on patient health and health system resources. The prevalence of kidney disease is increasing, with Manitoba being one of the provinces in Canada with the highest per capita rate of CKD and end stage renal disease (Anonymous, Canadian organ replacement register annual report: treatment of end-stage organ(More)
This paper concerns function spaces with varying smoothness and is a self-contained part of [8]. We define the spaces B S,s 0 p (R n), where the function S : x → s(x) is negative and determines the smoothness pointwise. First we prove basic properties and then use different wavelet decompositions to get information about local smoothness behavior. The main(More)
Let X be a rearrangement-invariant Banach function space. We calculate the K-functionals for the pairs (X, V 1 X) and (X, SX (t − 1 n)), where V 1 X is the reduced Sobolev space built upon X and SX (t − 1 n) is a particular instance of the space SX (w), determined, for a measurable nonnegative function (weight) w by the norm f S X (w) = (f * * − f *)w X ,(More)
I derive the term structure of short selling costs using the put-call parity relationship. The shape of the term structure is determined by informed investors' beliefs of when negative information will enter the market and correct the overpricing. I show that forward costs predicts future costs and stock returns, consistent with the expectations hypothesis(More)

A taxonomic revision of the subgenus Calosilpha Portevin, 1920 (of the genus Necrophila Kirby & Spence, 1828) through Asia is presented. Four valid species are recognized: (1) Necrophila (C.) brunnicollis (Kraatz, 1877), widely distributed from Bhutan and China: Yunnan province to Far East of Russia and Japan (including Ryukyu Islands); (2) N. (C.)(More)
