(Russian zapas, reserve of the armed forces), those persons listed on military service records who have already had their term of active military service or who have been deferred from service for various reasons but who are fit for service in wartime. In the USSR, according to the Law on Compulsory Military Service of Oct. 12, 1967, the reserve is divided into two categories. The first category is made up of persons who have had at least one year of active military service and of servicemen who have participated in combat in defense of the USSR regardless of length of service. The second category is made up of servicemen who have had less than one year of active military service and such persons who have not been called for active military service for various reasons. Both categories of the reserve are divided into three age groups; the first group, to age 35; the second group, to age 45; and the third group, to age 50. Privates, sergeants, and master sergeants are in the reserve until age 50 if they are men and until age 40 for women that are listed cm military service records; officers, generals, admirals, marshals of combat arm, and admirals of the fleet are in the reserve until age 50–65 depending on their military rank. The officer reserve is formed of officers, generals, and admirals who are discharged from active military service and are registered in the reserve; soldiers, sailors, sergeants, and master sergeants who receive the rank of officer at the time they are discharged into the reserve or while in the reserve; and persons who have undergone military training in a civilian educational institution. Persons subject to military service who are in the reserve are called up periodically for refresher training periods and may be called for inspection assemblies.

Continuing, first with aggregate unemployment, the null hypothesis tested was that the FFR did not Granger cause aggregate unemployment (for workers 16 years old and up) for the sample period.
The FFR method is combined with the ANCF method to obtain the stiffness matrix, which does not contain the generalized coordinates.
DBs with High SDI values, which also had High accessibility ([delta] < 500 m) and were located within high restaurant clusters (HH, LH) were identified as food swamp locations using ALL, FFR or SDR datasets.
Patients in the iFR group also had significantly fewer coronary artery bypass graft procedures and fewer subsequent revascularisations than those in the FFR group.
For one thing, when he and his coinvestigators broke down the FFR values in the OMT group into quintiles, they saw a clear dose-response effect: The clinical event rate rose further with worsening quintile of FFR.
It is based on a rapid flow analysis of a dynamically derived lumped model which can assess FFR using routine angiograms.
However, a lesion's severity judged with either CCTA or ICA is often inaccurate for identifying functionally significant coronary lesions that can cause ischemia, which should be further assessed by fractional flow reserve (FFR).[sup][6],[7] Stress myocardial computed tomography (CT) perfusion imaging and FFR-CT are new noninvasive methods that may overcome the mismatch between anatomy and function in cardiac imaging, but their use is currently limited because of increased costs and radiation exposure.[sup][8],[9],[10]
Designed to identify the severity of narrowings in the coronary arteries of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), FFR measurement allows for a more effective assessment of coronary lesions (blockages), resulting in more accurate diagnosis.
Given that the Federal Reserve funds rate (FFR) was essentially zero from 20092015, the impact of the Fed's quantitative easing (QE) program is best quantified by the shadow FFR.
