  Barotropic Dynamics of the Beta-Gyres and Beta-Drift
The movement of a symmetric vortex embedded in a resting environment with a constant planetary vorticity gradient (the beta drift) is investigated with a shallow-water model.
The evolution of the beta gyres is characterized by develop-ment/decay, gyration, and radial movement.
The outward shift of the outer beta gyres is initiated by advection of symmetric vorticity by beta gyres relative to the drifting velocity of the vortex.

 Zeta Upsilon Chapter of Beta Theta Pi
Beta Theta Pi grew from its roots on the frontier to be a truly pioneering fraternity.

Beta was also the first to recognize the strength of chapters at state-supported schools establishing chapters at Indiana and Michigan Universities as the first on campuses of state institutions.

 Beta blockers Information on Healthline
Beta blockers, also known as beta antagonists, are a class of drugs that were first developed for the treatment of certain heart conditions and hypertension.
Later, beta blockers were also found to be useful in glaucoma, migraine, and some psychiatric disorders such as performance anxiety, tremors secondary to lithium, and movement disorders that are caused by some drugs used in the treatment of psychosis.
Beta blockers should be used with close physician monitoring in people with diabetes, since the symptoms of low blood sugar (increased heart rate, lightheadedness, and abnormal perspiration) may be not be recognized by patients.

 Beta movement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Beta movement is a perceptual illusion, described by Max Wertheimer in his 1912 Experimental Studies on the Seeing of Motion, whereby two or more still images are combined by the brain into surmised motion.
The classic beta phenomenon experiment involves a viewer or audience watching a screen, upon which the experimenter projects two images in succession.

 History of Beta
Beta Theta Pi became the sixth fraternity in order of founding and the first to originate west of the Allegheny Mountains.
As the history of the Greek movement developed, Beta Theta Pi was the first fraternity to adopt a truly national point of view with a determination to be adequately represented in all sections of the U.S. and ultimately, now, throughout Canada as well.
While brotherhood serves as the cornerstone of Beta Theta Pi, this lasting bond of friendship is cultivated by being a part of a group of individuals who share the same goals and values, constantly supporting each other in the pursuit of social, moral and cultural excellence.

Beta Theta Pi, originating on the frontier, was in every sense a pioneer fraternity, with the enthusiasm, courage, hope, foresight and determination so characteristic of this untouched region.
As a pioneer, too, Beta Theta Pi was the first to recognize the strength to come from chapters at state-supported institutions as compared with denominational and/or privately owned ones.

 Market outlook
Beta is a very imperfect measure of the risk in owning a stock.
The answer is a definitive no. A portfolio of high Beta stocks clearly does not generate a higher return over time than a portfolio of low Beta stocks.
Essentially, high Beta stocks are expected to generate big gains if the market goes up but are also expected to generate big losses if the market goes down.

The Renewal Movement does not want a reshuffle of Bulatovic's cabinet, which the left bloc's offer implies, but rather the establishment of an interim government to be headed by a representative of the Democratic Party of Socialists.
Thereby, the movement practically supports the Montenegrin leadership, which demands that relations between Serbia and Montenegro be redefined, and that Montenegro should enjoy a higher level of independence in relation with the federation.

 Beta & Calculating Beta - Technical Analysis
Beta is a risk measure comparing the volatility of a stock's price movement to the general market.
Beta is derived from a formula that measures the volatility of a stock compared to the volatility of the market in general (as measured by a market index such as the S&P 500, DJIA, etc).
High beta stocks react strongly to variations in the market, and low beta stocks are less affected by market variations.

 MDS: Oscillatory Mechanism in Essential Tremor Differs From That in Parkinson's Disease   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
She and her coinvestigators wanted to document the postmovement beta synchronization of the motor cortex in the 2 conditions because power changes of the beta band are well localized and represent specific intracortical processes.
postmovement beta synchronization is a physiological indicator of information processing or of the idling state of the motor cortex and therefore is an appropriate parameter by which to compare the 2 conditions, she said.
After Fourier transformation, the investigators analyzed the event-related averaged changes of movement-reactive beta frequency in the approximately 2-second epochs around the conclusion of movement.

 DOI 10.1007/s00221-002-1244-0
Specifically, we found that, compared with the control condition in which subjects only looked at the visual metronome without making any movement, all the movement conditions were accompanied by a decrease of power in the alpha range (8-14 Hz) in sensorimotor channels of both hemispheres, and an increase of coherence among a subset of these channels.
The movement trajectories for all four conditions, as measured by the finger pressure time series, are summarized in Fig. 4.
This TRPow decrease phenomenon is analogous to the mu rhythm ERD in self-paced movement (Stancák Jr and Pfurtscheller

 BETA
A stock with a high beta coefficient (in absolute terms), such as 6.30 or -6.30, is likely to have greater price percentage movement than the SandP 500 Index.
A Beta coefficient of -0.50 represents stock price movement that tends to be half as volatile of the SandP 500 Index, but one whose price tends to move in the opposite direction.
A Beta coefficient of -1.00 represents stock price movement that tends to have the same volatility as the SandP 500 Index, but one whose price tends to move in the opposite direction.

Movement downhill should be more natural, and you may notice your avatar eases to a stop instead of coming to an abrupt halt when you release the forward key.
Thanks to the hard work and patience of both the development team and the beta testers, movement in Active Worlds 3.4 has been greatly enhanced, and adjusted based on helpful feedback.
The addition of a jump key, the ability to customize movement controls, more realistic movement speeds and inertia, better slide and collision detection, and many other small changes add up to a new movement feel and support for future enhancement plans.

 Beta   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
A simpler method in "accurately" determining beta is to simply look at the movement of the stock or fund versus an index over a period of time- say one year.
They suggest that current beta should be a reflection of past beta, firm size, debt ratio, variance of earnings, variance of cash flows, growth in earnings per share, market capitalization, dividend yield, debt to asset ratio and other ratios as well.
In summary, there probably should not be a wholesale reliance on beta as the only criteria used to determine the risk of a stock or portfolio.
