We address the IGARCH puzzle, by which we understand the fact that a GARCH(1,1) model fitted to virtually any financial dataset exhibit the property thatˆα + ˆ β is close to one. We do this by proving that if data is generated by a stochastic volatility model but fitted to a GARCH(1,1) model one would get thatˆα + ˆ β tends to one in probability as the(More)
We present weak lensing mass reconstructions for the 20 high-redshift clusters in the ESO Distant Cluster Survey. The weak lensing analysis was performed on deep, 3-color optical images taken with VLT/FORS2, using a composite galaxy catalog with separate shape estimators measured in each passband. We find that the EDisCS sample is composed primarily of(More)

"The idea of subjugating the student to a continuous parental influence through the popular university influence is artificial and non-realistic, both in terms of living in society and getting an education," according to In his opening remarks, O'Toole traced the evolution of the "in loco parentis" system of university organization from its English origins(More)
the biology of obesity and how best to treat it. The propensity of obese persons to sit more than lean individuals has several potential explanations. Rodent studies support the concept that there are central and humoral mediators of NEAT (10, 11). For example, we have shown that a neuropeptide associated with arousal, orexin (12), increases NEAT in rats(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have reported a potential analgesic effect of botulinum toxin A (BTXA) in musculoskeletal pain. The present double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel clinical trial studied the effect of BTXA on pain from muscle trigger points and on EMG activity at rest and during voluntary contraction. METHODS Thirty patients with(More)
