IDB investments need to produce tangible and positive results in the lives of beneficiaries and address the most important development challenges facing our 26 borrowing members in Latin America and the Caribbean. Social and human development involves improving the well-being of individuals, but also strengthening social cohesion by tackling inequality. Lent et al. stated these static career development theories fail to take into account interactions occurring between constantly developing individuals and their ever-changing contexts. Elucidating the role of OPTN in labour processes enhances our understanding of the mechanisms that drive preterm birth and could perhaps lead to the development of a clinical therapeutic strategy.

Evaluation of development programmes : The DAC Network on Development Evaluation contributes to better development results using evaluation to build a strong evidence base for policy making and for learning. These results provide evidence for the effects of prenatal development on programming reproductive performance in male offspring.developmentdevelopment

IDB investments need to produce tangible and positive results in the lives of beneficiaries and address the most important development challenges facing our 26 borrowing members in Latin America and the Caribbean. Such findings stress the necessity for considering ethnicity and sex effects in the study of the developmental origins of adult health and disease. In this study we demonstrated that cryopreserved spermatozoa combined with ICSI followed by surrogate eggshell culture can result in fertilisation and embryo development in the quail. This study evaluated the effects of sperm motility enhancers, media and different IVF times on embryo development. Melatonin is a good agent for delaying oocyte aging in vitro and preventing poor developmental competence of bovine oocytes in assisted reproductive technologies. The third phase of self-concept development is implementation, or actualizing, as education is completed and the person enters the actual workplace or professional training is entered (Super, 1963). Elevation of CNP levels may be an adaptation to enhance placental function when fetal development is impaired.development

The region remains the world’s most dynamic, but improving inclusiveness and well-being, and achieving environmental and other development goals will require new policy approaches. It will be investigated further whether BIX may affect postimplantation …

Our academic staff have unrivalled, practical and theoretical knowledge of the many branches of enquiry that make up Development Studies (political economy, globalisation, migration and displacement, conflict, agrarian change, labour movements, political ecology and institutions to name a few). Social and human development involves improving the well-being of individuals, but also strengthening social cohesion by tackling inequality. Lent et al. stated these static career development theories fail to take into account interactions occurring between constantly developing individuals and their ever-changing contexts.

The use of bovine oviductal fluid supplementation during in vitro culture had a positive effect on embryo development and embryo quality. All four molecules affected embryonic development or gene expression and may therefore function in the endometrium as embryokines. In this study, supplementing culture medium with uterine-derived factors improved bovine placental cell proliferation and embryo development. Early development of the equine embryo occurs in the oviduct, and information on the composition of this oviducal environment is very valuable. Abnormal sexual development was discovered in both fetuses, which, in the …

We work as partners with governments and the private sector in developing countries to create a sustainable world where every person has the opportunity to live a healthy and productive life. Descriptive research conducted by Roe on artists and research scientists prior to her theory development was primarily a series of investigations into personality characteristics, background factors, aptitude, and intellectual abilities as theory related to vocational choice” (Osipow, 1973, p. 24).development

Adding to Hackett and Betz’s original work has been Lent, Brown, and Hackett’s (1994; 1996) social cognitive framework linking three aspects of career development; career interests, academic and career choice options, and performance and persistence in undertakings.

Total official and private flows are defined as the sum of official development assistance, other official flows and private flows. We observed that maturation of pig oocytes in hypotonic medium with reduced NaCl improves the developmental competence of oocytes by affecting the cytoplasmic microenvironment. Glucocorticoids (GCs) sustain life and the development of human embryo; however, fetoplacental exposure to high maternal GC levels may lead to placental and fetal abnormalities, with the adverse consequences of GC excess manifested later in life. Armando has more than 18 years of experience in Organizational Development and …

SPD’s role is to strengthen the design and implementation of IE, and its involvement can occur at three different levels: a) advising teams on general evaluation questions; b) reviewing terms of reference and/or results matrices and supporting the team in the definition of the evaluation design (sample size, definition of indicators, etc.); and c) in a more substantive role, in which a SPD member participates as full team member, responsible for the evaluation component of the project.developmentdevelopment

The mechanisms through which GC excess alters placental and fetal development are yet to be identified; however, changes in placental GR levels and subcellular localization and ratios may modify placental function, in utero growth of the fetus and lifelong health.development

Super’s life-span, life-space theory has the virtue of building upon aspects of the mainstream of developmental psychology and personality theory with considerable utility for both practice and research in vocational psychology” (Osipow & Fitzgerald, 1996, p. 143).
