The chapter of J. Banks, P. Diamond and J. Mirrlees (BDM) presents an excellent survey of the existing literature on optimal taxation and discusses a number of lessons that can be drawn from that literature. One of the main lessons on which their chapter focuses concerns the treatment of capital income. The authors argue that the finding that the optimal income tax schedule should not include tax on capital is based on too many restrictions, and is thus not robust for policy purposes. Another lesson is that taxation should vary with age. Not having any quarrel with these two points, I would like in this comment to discuss a number of points too quickly dealt with or deliberately neglected by BDM. They concern the issue of tagging, the problem raised by having more than one unobservable characteristic (besides ability), the issue of myopia and prodigality, the question of equal opportunities, the taxation of couples and the threat of tax competition [less ▲]

This paper describes the behaviour of the base plate in bending and the anchor bolts in tension, which are the major components of a base plate connection. An analytical model has been derived to predict the component characteristics – the resistance and the stiffness. A description is given of how the behaviour is influenced by contact between the base plate and the concrete surface. The presented analytical model has been verified by tests and a finite element simulation. [less ▲]

DNA multiply charged anions stored in a quadrupole ion trap undergo one-photon electron ejection (oxidation) when subjected to laser irradiation at 260 nm (4.77 eV). Electron photodetachment is likely a fast process, given that photodetachment is able to compete with internal conversion or radiative relaxation to the ground state. The DNA [6-mer](3-) ions studied here show a marked sequence dependence of electron photodetachment yield. Remarkably, the photodetachment yield (dG(6) > dA(6) > dC(6) > dT(6)) is inversely correlated with the base ionization potentials (G < A < C < T). Sequences with guanine runs show increased photodetachment yield as the number of guanine increases, in line with the fact that positive holes are the most stable in guanine runs. This correlation between photodetachment yield and the stability of the base radical may be explained by tunneling of the electron through the repulsive Coulomb barrier. Theoretical calculations on dinucleotide monophosphates show that the HOMO and HOMO-1 orbitals are localized on the bases. The wavelength dependence of electron detachment yield was studied for dG(6)(3-). Maximum electron photodetachment is observed in the wavelength range corresponding to base absorption (260-270 nm). This demonstrates the feasibility of gas-phase UV spectroscopy on large DNA anions. The calculations and the wavelength dependence suggest that the electron photodetachment is initiated at the bases and not at the phosphates. This also indicates that, although direct photodetachment could also occur, autodetachment from excited states, presumably corresponding to base excitation, is the dominant process at 260 nm. Excited-state dynamics of large DNA strands still remains largely unexplored, and photo-oxidation studies on trapped DNA multiply charged anions can help in bridging the gap between gas-phase studies on isolated bases or base pairs and solution-phase studies on full DNA strands.

In perceptual experiments, within-individual fluctuations in perception are observed across multiple presentations of the same stimuli, a phenomenon that remains only partially understood. Here, by means of thulium-yttrium/aluminum- garnet laser and event-related functional MRI, we tested whether variability in perception of identical stimuli relates to differences in prestimulus, baseline brain activity. Results indicate a positive relationship between conscious perception of low-intensity somatosensory stimuli and immediately preceding levels of baseline activity in medial thalamus and the lateral frontoparietal network, respectively, which are thought to relate to vigilance and "external monitoring." Conversely, there was a negative correlation between subsequent reporting of conscious perception and baseline activity in a set of regions encompassing posterior cingulate/ precuneus and temporoparietal cortices, possibly relating to introspection and self-oriented processes. At nociceptive levels of stimulation, pain-intensity ratings positively correlated with baseline fluctuations in anterior cingulate cortex in an area known to be involved in the affective dimension of pain. These results suggest that baseline brain-activity fluctuations may profoundly modify our conscious perception of the external world. [less ▲]

The potential value of baseline health-related quality-of-life (HRQOL) and clinical factors in predicting prognosis was examined using data from an international randomised phase III trial which compared doxorubicin and paclitaxel with doxorubicin and cylophosphamide as first line chemotherapy in 275 women with metastatic breast cancer. The European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) QLQ-C30 and the related breast module (QLQ-BR23) were used to assess baseline HRQOL data. The Cox proportional-hazards regression model was used for both univariate and multivariate analyses of survival. In the univariate analyses, performance status (P < 0.001) and number of sites involved (P = 0.001) were the most important clinical prognostic factors. The HRQOL variables at baseline most strongly associated with longer survival were better appetite, physical and role functioning, as well as less fatigue (P < 0.001). The final multivariate model retained performance status (P < 0.001) and appetite loss (P = 0.005) as the variables best predicting survival. Substantial loss of appetite was the only independent HRQOL factor predicting poor survival and was strongly correlated (\r\ > 0.5) with fatigue, role and physical functioning. In addition to known clinical factors, appetite loss appears to be a significant prognostic factor for survival in women with metastatic breast cancer. However, the mechanism underlying this association remains to be precisely defined in future studies. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

High-sensitivity C-reactive protein predicts future cardiovascular events in both healthy individuals and patients with unstable and stable coronary syndromes. Few data are available about the incidence and the relation to inflammation of troponin elevation following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), a potential predictor of longterm outcome. We sought to confirm the impact of embolization on long-term outcome and evaluate the ability of baseline inflammation to predict troponin elevation induced by PCI. We prospectively analyzed 200 patients treated by PCI for stable or Braunwald IIA class unstable angina. The patients were recruited between January 1997 and May 1999, and the population was followed during a mean follow-up of 32 months. Major adverse cardiac events (MACEs) were defined as the occurrence of death, myocardial infarction or recurrent angina requiring repeat PCI, or coronary artery bypass grafting. During the follow-up period, 58 MACEs were observed. By multivariate analysis, independent predictors for the occurrence of MACEs were unstable angina and troponin I level after PCI (P < 0.0001 for both). No correlation was found between baseline inflammation and significant troponin I elevation post PCI and by multivariate analysis, no biological variable was a predictor of troponin I elevation post PCI. Baseline inflammation cannot predict onset of minor myonecrosis damage (expressed by troponin elevation) induced by PCI, a significant predictor of long-term outcome in this setting. [less ▲]
