I am reading a scientific article on "Imperfectly enforceable standards" related to the reduction of wastes. It's an economic paper. I'm not a native speaker and not strong at this subject. Can you help me by explaining the following to me in detail?
"Since the marginal costs of reducing wastes decrease as wastes increase, while the slope of the expected fin function is here assumed to be non-decreasing, we must have marginal costs of waste reduction at the allowed level of wastes greater than the rate of increase in the expected penalty with respect to the first unit of illegal wastes in order to have a positive violation."1 AnswerHigher Education (University +)1 decade ago
I added a contact to Skype, and added a wrong phone number. How can I correct the number? I do not see a way to edit, and not even a way to remove the phone number. (Skype 4.1)
Ps. I tried removing the contact and add the person again to my list. But then I see all phone numbers I entered for this person again - with the errors in it.Software1 decade ago

I experience some fysical suffers that are the result of a sleep deprivation. I had not enough rest during the night. Only I think that my body reacts extreme. I feel bad for 3 days, really tired and the symptoms are weird.
- When waking up and also during the day my skin feels paralysed.
- My body is really hot, feel extreme heat through my vains
- My vains hurt/tickle. It helps a little to stretch, but not much of help.
I feel that I need to get some sleep, but the symptons keep me from getting enough rest.
I hope to hear some good ideas on what I should do. How I can prevent this extreme body reaction from happening again. And especially I would like to know sleep deprivation exposes itself to me with these symptoms?1 AnswerOther - Health1 decade ago
I get crazy of all the messengers (like skype, msn, icq, Gtalk, etc) and their statuses. Every time I need to change all of them. Is there a small tool that integrates in the windows bar (next to START) which I can change instead of changing them all? So it changes them for me in place? Hope someone can help me out.1 AnswerMSN1 decade ago
I was drinking a glass of Sprite, and I noticed that one gass-bubble went up to the surface, stayde there for a moment, and then went down to the bottom again. After a moment it was light enough to get up to the surface again. This up-and-down quest went on infinite times. I understand why gass bubbles up. But why is it going down again? Can someone explain this to me? For me it's like magic.1 AnswerPhysics1 decade ago

What is the formula to calculate the possible amount of combinations you can make under two conditions.
(1) The amount of (e.g.) cards.
(2) The amount of cards that should be in your selection.
For example you want to take 3 cards of a deck of 3 cards, then there is 1 combination possible (1,2,3). When there is one more card in the deck (so 4 cards), and you want to take again 3 cards, then there are 3 possible combinations (123, 124, 234), etc.
I would like to know the formula where the amount of cards in the deck can change, and the amount of cards in the fixed selection can change. With results in the amount of possible combinations.2 AnswersMathematics1 decade ago
