The change of seasons often also brings an influenza outbreak. Although influenza activity generally peaks around January, it takes the body about two weeks after vaccination to develop antibodies that will protect against influenza virus infection. For that reason it's important to get vaccinated before the seasonal outbreak.

In an effort to encourage the Waterloo community to get vaccinated, the university is hosting a number of community flu vaccination clinics.

Religious freedom has been increasingly under attack in France in the last 10 years. In 2004, religious symbols were banned in public high schools, and in 2011, covering the face in public spaces was prohibited. These measures were largely a response to, and have disproportionately affected, Muslim communities – especially Muslim women. They may also be jeopardizing pluralism, democracy, and certain conceptions of freedom.

ABSTRACT:

From January 2016, all insurance companies that are regulated within Solvency II framework will have to value their asset and liabilities using a market-consistent method. This paper studies market-consistent and sub-consistent valuations in incomplete financial markets with two types (type I and II) of market consistency. While market consistency of type I holds under fairly weak assumptions, the type II consistency, which is the usual definition of market consistency in the literature, holds only if the market prices are linear for fully hedged assets. We also characterize the market consistent and sub-consistent evaluators in several different ways. We discuss how market-consistent and sub-consistent valuations can be regarded as a robust approach to hedging and pricing in the presence of market imperfections such as market incompleteness and frictions.
