The study of physical adsorption has economic and technical value, while continuing to present scientific challenges. During recent years three significant trends have become manifest: significant theoretical advances; instrumental developments allowing detailed characterization of materials, including microporous solids; and the realization that closer coupling of scientific and technological lines of enquiry can lead to both greater scientific understanding and better technology.

Using any lies to demonize Obama, the conservative crowd tries to frighten the American people by accusing him of promoting CLASS WARFARE. During his inspiring State of the Union, the President clearly stated that he and Democrats are not at all against financial success. On the contrary, we admire success AS LONG AS IT IS OBTAINED HONESTLY. What we demand is a tax code revision so that those, like Romney, who make millions annually from 'investments' will no longer get taxed at a lower rate than Americans who must work for a living. Mr. Romney only paid 13.9% on 40 + millions. If a group is promoting class warfare, it is not the 99%; it is the 1% who successfully lobbied the GOP to lower the tax rate on 'Investment/Capital Gain Incomes' to 15%. NOW THE GOP WANTS TO LOWER THE RATE EVEN MORE! It is so repugnant that America's 2 richest men, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet declared publicly that they should pay more taxes! WB even cited his secretary who pays a higher tax rate on her 'EARNED INCOME' $60,000 SALARY than WB's rate on his INVESTMENT INCOME of several millions. Requesting an end to this scandal has nothing to do with Class Warfare. 'OBAMA 2012 lists all sorts of GOP outrageous lies and schemes to vilify President Obama. The last chapter 'How Swede it is' shows how rational and compassionate politics have transformed a previously poor country into a prosperous industrial giant where people are totally free to succeed in business but cannot abuse anybody

This study is, to the author’s knowledge, the fi rst empirical cross-country analysis of the relationship between corruption and human development (HD) in Africa. In most African countries the current state of HD is critically poor. In spite of two decades of democratization and substantial economic growth or stability corruption has become endemic and tends to adversely affect HD conditions and needs. Using a pooledcross- section-across time-design and a sample of 40 African countries over many years (2003 – 2007) and based on an OLS Analysis, this study attempts an empirical examination of the association between corruption and HD in Africa, while holding constant economic growth, government socioeconomic or welfare expenditures and political system and, controlling for some major internal and external economic variables. As found, corruption adversely affects human development in Africa. Overall, based on the main study model (Model 1) a unit increase in the corruption level (CPI) on a scale of 1 to 10 will cause a .48 percent decrease in the state of HD (HDI).The relationship between corruption and HD is however non-linear: using Model 3 which incorporate a square term of corruption, it was found that at and below 4.577 RCPI (i.e. 5.42 normal CPI) corruptions is likely to positively affect HD whereas at and above 4.577 RCPI corruption rather tends to adversely affect HD with an increasing return. Besides, it was also found, using Model 2 which incorporates an interaction term of corruption and political system, that democratization has deceived scientists’ theoretical projections and people’s political expectations of the 1990s’. Democracy has not improved HD in Africa. Both non-and partly democratic (i.e., authoritarian) and democratic political systems adversely affect HD. The adverse impact of corruption on HD is even worse in the latter systems. After checking for the main effect (Model 2) it appears that, as corruption increases by one unit, HD decreases by 9.48 percent in African countries with authoritarian systems. In contrast , the same one unit increase in corruption will have an additional 5.23 percent decrease in the HD of African countries with a democratic system. This study brings new insights about public policies ineffectiveness and failures to satisfy increasing HD needs in Africa. It throws new lights on the relationship existing between economic growth, democracy and corruption and HD. It suggests some policy reforms which could improve the state of HD in Africa. Overall, it is an important contribution to the theoretical and empirical body of administrative theory and knowledge.
