Rheologica Acta. Many diverse materials, including some which are very unlikely to have a structure such as is postulated by Casson , obey his equation for shear-thinning plastic bodies. When the data range over only one or one and a half decades, as is usual, the curves cannot be visually distinguished from those using the Herschel and Bulkley equation for which some explanation, depending much less on any specific type of structure, is already available.

Stop the excuses. Not only must JV CEOs handle all the classic challenges of running a company — often in fast moving, emerging industries and markets — but they must also deal with a set of issues that emanate from the unique ownership structure of a joint venture. By definition, joint ventures have multiple owners, and these owners often have some level of operational interdependence with the venture, and often have imperfectly aligned financial and strategic interests, corporate cultures, and expectations.

Obviously the location of an activity on the continuum gives us guidance on how much reversion to the mean is needed in making a prediction.
Below are the available bulk discount rates for each individual item when you purchase a certain amount. Publication Date: November 06, The trick, of course, is figuring out just how many of our successes and failures can be attributed to each--and how we can learn to tell the difference ahead of time. In most domains of life, skill and luck seem hopelessly entangled. Different levels of skill and varying degrees of good and bad luck are the realities that shape our lives--yet few of us are adept at accurately distinguishing between the two. Imagine what we could accomplish if we were able to tease out these two threads, examine them, and use the resulting knowledge to make better decisions. In this provocative book, Michael Mauboussin helps to untangle these intricate strands to offer the structure needed to analyze the relative importance of skill and luck.
