assuming no price change for all products always returns a price-change estimate of zero. from december 2016 to september 2017, the actual price movement was near zero, with quarterly price changes of −0.3 percent (december–march), −0.5 percent (march–june), and −1.0 percent (june–september). an index biased toward zero has little error. in periods with large price movements, assuming no price change would produce large errors. bls.gov
james “jimmy” mcquade was born and raised in brooklyn, new york. on september 11, 2001, jimmy witnessed the horror of the terrorist attacks on the world trade center as he drove through lower manhattan. during the three months following 9/11, he performed rescue work at ground zero. he later enrolled in the world trade center (wtc) health program and went to a clinical center of excellence (cce) in new york to receive treatment. however, in 2015, he decided it was time to retire and move to florida. cdc.gov
table 8 gives the levels of emigration during 1980-1990 for the non-selected countries based on assumed emigration rates (columns 6-10). the levels vary from zero for the assumption of zero emigration to 747,000 for the assumption of the same rate as for the selected countries. our preferred assumption--one-half of the rate for the selected countries--produced a level of 367,000 for the decade. of this amount, hispanics accounted for 231,000, blacks, 49,000, and the asian and pacific islander population, 87,000. the amount of emigration for the mexico-born population was 201,000. census.gov
for countries that cannot obtain outside security guarantees, adoption of the "zero option"-- eliminating all experienced personnel--is untenable because it would render the new services incapable of performing intelligence tasks over the short and medium terms. for institutions undergoing major reform, excessive turnover would similarly compromise the effort.37 institutional memory is required for real transformation. without it, new structures are likely to behave in old ways. even where the temporary loss of intelligence capability is accepted and the requisite security guarantees are received, implementing the "zero option" requires time. in czechoslovakia, for example, the number of ex-stb officers was reduced to 14 percent of the new service within a year, but six years later legacy personnel still represented 4 percent of the service.38 cia.gov
secretary of state hillary clinton got a jump on world aids day this year in her speech at the national institutes of health in early november, which marked 30 years of the fight against hiv and aids. clinton called on the u.s. and supporters worldwide to work toward creating an aids-free generation. her goal is in keeping with the theme of this year’s world aids day: getting to zero, meaning zero new hiv infections, zero discrimination against those with the disease, and zero aids-related deaths by 2015. with 33 million people living with hiv/aids worldwide, including more than 1 million in the u.s., it’s a goal worth striving for. everydayhealth.com
unlike other numbers, zero has certain special properties in connection with the four fundamental operations. by definition zero added to or subtracted from any number leaves the number unchanged. any number multiplied by zero gives zero. zero multiplied by or divided by any number (other than zero) is still zero. but division by zero is undefined; i.e., there is no number that is the value of a number divided by zero. factmonster.com
but, i wasn’t thinking about that. i was thinking, “of course i support breastfeeding. i’m not one of these guys who won’t want their wives breastfeeding in public, who feel grossed out by the whole thing and want zero involvement. therefore i am one of the good ones. i support breastfeeding.” healthline.com
a zero payment is a sentinel event that requires every physician practice to analyze the appropriateness of each and every zero payment. of the 17-to-25 percent of claim lines that receive zero payments, 2 percent to over 10 percent of those claim lines resulted from the application of claim edits. the number of claim edits that receive zero payments resulting from code edits dwarfs the claim lines that receive zero payment from denials. this demonstrates the importance of focusing on code edit simplification and standardization, as only 1-to-4 percent of claim lines that receive zero payments were caused by denials. hhs.gov

before the statewide tzd program was established, the group conducted a pilot program, representing the four e's, by forming the southeast minnesota toward zero deaths regional program and a regional steering committee to target traffic fatalities. starting on a smaller scale and evaluating during the pilot allowed lesson learning before establishing more tzd regions statewide. mayoclinic.org
could zero infection transmission be achieved in the more far-flung and variable settings of hospitals across the united states? "the ability to get zero transmission is only possible if people adhere to the strictest infection-control guidelines," glatt said. "that is clearly the goal, and it will take time to see if our existing strict guidelines are sufficient to maintain zero or close to zero contamination and transmission rates in our hospitals." medicinenet.com
the mpz gene provides instructions for making a protein called myelin protein zero. it is the most abundant protein in myelin, a protective substance that covers nerves and promotes the efficient transmission of nerve impulses. myelin protein zero is produced by specialized cells called schwann cells, which wrap around and insulate peripheral nerves. peripheral nerves connect the brain and spinal cord to muscles and to sensory cells that detect sensations such as touch, pain, heat, and sound. myelin protein zero is required for the proper formation and maintenance of myelin. this protein is an adhesion molecule, which means it acts like molecular glue. it plays a role in tightly packing the myelin around nerve cells (myelin compaction). medlineplus.gov
"the pattern struck me from the beginning -- you see two events in the rofecoxib arm, zero in placebo, three versus zero, one versus zero, three versus three, but it is not until the 096 trial in october 2000 when there are five events versus zero, more than doubling of risk, that the trend begins to approach significance at 0.07," he said. medpagetoday.com
for example, if 500 mg is present in the body at time zero, after metabolism, 250 mg may be present at 1 hour and 125 mg at 2 hours (illustrating a half-life of 1 hour). however, when most of the enzyme sites are occupied, metabolism occurs at its maximal rate and does not change in proportion to drug concentration; instead, a fixed amount of drug is metabolized per unit time (zero-order kinetics). in this case, if 500 mg is present in the body at time zero, after metabolism, 450 mg may be present at 1 hour and 400 mg at 2 hours (illustrating a maximal clearance of 50 mg/h and no specific half-life). as drug concentration increases, metabolism shifts from first-order to zero-order kinetics. merckmanuals.com
