Frequency of regulation is dependent upon amount of use, exposure to climatic changes, and the instrument's quality, age and condition.

  Selective Disclosure and Insider Trading
Regulation FD is also designed to address another threat to the integrity of our markets: the potential for corporate management to treat material information as a commodity to be used to gain or maintain favor with particular analysts or investors.
Under the regulation, a selective disclosure is "intentional" when the issuer or person acting on behalf of the issuer making the disclosure either knows, or is reckless in not knowing, prior to making the disclosure, that the information he or she is communicating is both material and nonpublic.
The regulation does not require use of a particular method, or establish a "one size fits all" standard for disclosure; rather, it leaves the decision to the issuer to choose methods that are reasonably calculated to make effective, broad, and non-exclusionary public disclosure, given the particular circumstances of that issuer.

In dynamic regulation, two different switch states (an "on" and an "off" state) are arranged so that the system switches from one state to the other when the regulated parameter rises to an upper limit (an on-off thermostat).
In feedback regulation (or control as it is technically referred to), an error signal is produced between the existing state of a system and the desired regulated level.
The behavior of the regulator is often hard-wired, as in a thermostat, or rule-like, as in a bureaucracy.

Regulation FD is not meant to change anything about the substance of disclosure itself, but it may indirectly impact the types of information that companies voluntarily decide to disclose, when to disclose particular information, and how to disclose it.
Regulation FD was supported by the vast majority of a record volume of comment letters (over 6,000), most of which were sent by e-mail from retail investors.
Regulation FD does not apply to companies that are private or going public, and therefore, venture capitalists face these issues only if they remain on the board after the company goes public.

 I - Insulin Regulation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Urine glucose monitoring is not adequate, alone, for regulating insulin, in the opinion of most of the endocrinologists I have spoken with or whose information I have read.
One common mistake with insulin regulation is too frequently changing the insulin dose -- "chasing the glucose level".
Sometimes, in early regulation of insulin levels it isn't possible to be that patient as glucose levels skyrocket or hypoglycemia occurs.
