This effect appeared to be mediated by the suppression of Notch ligand expression by SEMFs
. In fact, the Notch pathway is a key regulator of epithelial cell differentiation, leading towards an absorptive phenotype .
The SEMF lacks the resources to mount a public relations campaign to bring family medicine into the public eye and thereby enhance the status of the residency-trained graduates.
The possibilities they raised at the workshop included strengthening the SEMF to build networks of support among themselves.
The development of such an educational program and a certifying mechanism for generalists was the original mission of the SEMF over 10 years ago (Wilson, 1993), but it has languished for lack of energy and resources.
The leadership within the small group of family physician in the SEMF tires from the constant struggle to promote the field.
Pechiney, the company's managing director from 1877 until his retirement in 1906 (by whose name the company came to be known), initially turned down the chance to buy the Heroult process, only to see the eventual Heroult licensee, SEMF
, drive it out of aluminum production by 1894.
SEMF is a multi-discipline engineering, scientific and management consulting group with strong expertise in the mining sector having previously completed work for King Island Scheelite's (ASX:KIS) (PINK:KISLF) Tasmanian Tungsten Project and Nyrstar (EBR:NYR) (PINK:NYRSF), the world's largest zinc metal producer, at its Hobart smelter.
SEMF have examined the likely capital and operating costs based on the preliminary metallurgical design and other project information for the Mt Garnet Project Based on the preliminary process flowsheet a likely baseline throughput was estimated at 700,000 tonne per annum.
SEMF have estimated capital costs in the order of A$124 million inclusive of a 10% contingency.
As part of the scoping study, and based on the SEMF estimates, indicative project net cash flows before tax for a range of tin ore prices have been developed in-house and are shown in Table 1 below.
The rates of dividends on all the Funds and the SEMF
have been increasing and the Corporation paid dividends in the range of 15 per cent and 45 per cent for the year ended June 30, 1991.
