The Workers' Compensation Board does not normally accept a claimant's electronic signature on Board-prescribed forms. Due to recent increases in COVID-19 infection rates across New York State, however, as of August 16, 2021, the Emergency Relief from Signature Requirements on Listed Documents will remain in effect until further notice for the forms specifically listed in the Board's announcement: Emergency Relief from Original Signature Requirements on Listed Documents.

At which point in a person's lifeshould the measurement of equivalence be made Two obvious choices would bemeasuring at the time of entry into the labor force or measuring at the time ofretirement (which implicitly excludes the experience of all persons who do notsurvive to reach retirement). Another interesting choice might be measuring atbirth. What base year should be selected as astandard against which to measure equivalence One might choose to measureequivalence relative to the situation that existed when the program first paidmonthly benefits in 1940. One could also measure equivalence relative to thesituation as it presently exists, or else as it existed in some past year since1940.In addressing the first question, we believe that a goodcharacteristic for measuring equivalence should not be directly related toprovisions of the program, other than the retirement age itself. Acharacteristic which is dependent upon other provisions of the program (such asbenefit levels or tax rates) may overcompensate in determining equivalence.That is, the resulting measure of equivalence may determine aretirement age which offsets certain intentional changes in the program. Webelieve that, throughout the history of the Social Security program, thevarious changes in benefit structure and financing that have been enacted havenot been intended to be substitutes for changes in the normal retirement age.Even when retirement benefits first became available at age 62 in 1956 forwomen and in 1961 for men, the concept was to provide reduced benefits forearly retirement, and not to establish an adjusted benefit structure for a newnormal retirement age.

Measure A defines the equivalent retirement age for agiven year to be that age at which the retirement expectancy (the expectednumber of years spent in retirement) at time of retirement is equal to that forage-65 retirement in the base year. Under measure A, a retirement age in 1980of 71 years and 0 months would be equivalent to age-65 retirement in 1940.Assuming mortality improvement as in the intermediate set of assumptions forthe 1981 Trustees Report, a similarly equivalent retirement age in 2000 wouldbe 74 years and 1 month. Assuming a base year of 1980 instead of 1940, anequivalent retirement age in 2000 would be 67 years and 11 months. This means that,according to measure A, a proposal to increase the normal retirement age to 68in the year 2000 could be viewed as a correction for future expected drift inthe effective retirement age and an acceptance (i.e., not taking account) ofthe drift that has already occurred. Table 1A gives equivalent retirement agesunder measure A for various calendar years and various base years ofmeasurement.

Monoclonal (MAb 362.50) and polyclonal (anti-gp105-2) antibodies have been used to examine the expression by transplantable (THC) and primary (PHC) hepatocellular carcinomas of a 105 kd rat hepatocyte cell adhesion molecule designated cell-CAM 105. Two-dimensional gel analysis of components immunoprecipitated with MAb 362.50 or anti-gp105-2 antibodies from detergent extracts of cells surface labeled with 125I showed that cell-CAM 105 from three different THC exhibited a more basic pI than its counterpart from normal rat hepatocytes. Immunoprecipitation of detergent extracts from radioiodinated hepatocytes with anti-THC antisera raised in rabbits by four immunizations with THC cells showed that six THC lines which were negative when stained by indirect immunofluorescence with MAb 362.50 expressed sufficient levels of cell-CAM 105 to induce precipitating antibodies. In contrast, antisera collected after eight immunizations with THC 253.1 and THC 252.2, showed no detectable reactivity with cell-CAM 105 suggesting that these THC lines had completely lost the expression of this molecule. Immunofluorescence analysis of normal rat tissues indicated that cell-CAM 105 was also present in the brush border of the small intestine and a subset of tubules in the kidney, raising the possibility that THC cells were expressing an isoform normally found in nonhepatic tissues. However, cell-CAM 105 isolated from kidney showed a mobility on two-dimensional gels that was distinct from both the THC and hepatocyte forms of this molecule. Indirect immunofluorescence analysis of PHC induced by ethionine in a choline-deficient diet or by the Solt/Farber protocol showed that 52% and 65% of the persistent hepatic nodules induced by ethionine in a choline-deficient diet and by the Solt/Farber protocol, respectively, were unreactive with MAb 362.50. Immunoprecipitation analysis of PHC induced by ethionine or diethylnitrosamine and choline-deficient diet showed that one of four PHC was expressing an altered form of cell-CAM 105 with the more basic pI characteristic of the THC form of this molecule. Taken together, these results suggest that quantitative and qualitative changes in the expression of cell-CAM 105 may constitute an important step in the acquisition of the malignant phenotype.

One of the most important features in a lens is the focal length or focal length range - get it wrong and you might not be able to take the shots you want.And the use for a particular focal length or focal length range varies, of course, depending on theFOVCF of the body being used.That said, this lens gives us a very nice general purpose focal range to work with.On a full frame body, 24mm is very wide.On a 1.6x body, 24mm is only moderately wide (equivalent of 38.4mm).And the advantage or disadvantage - whichever it is for you personally - is the opposite on the other end as well.

Use the mouseover links under the above picture to compare the field of view at various focal lengths.The 24-105 L was used on a full frame body for these shots.A focal length comparison was not on my mind when shooting these pictures, but when reviewing them, I decided you might like to see them in this way.The composition jumps around some, but the mountain top can be seen in all of the frames and used as a reference.A B+W MRC Slim Circular Polarizer Filter was used in these shots.As you can see, the difference between 24mm and 105 is quite large.

Pictured above from left to right are theCanon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens,Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Lens,Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens andCanon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Lens.The same lenses are pictured below in their fully extended size.

Of note is that the 24-70mm L reverse extends - it becomes longest at 24mm as shown above.Most lenses including the 24-105 L become fully extended at their longest focal length setting and their lens hoods travel along with this extension.

As with most lenses, full frame users will also see some light fall-off with the 24-105 L wide open - especially at the far corners at the widest focal lengths.The light fall-off quickly improves as the lens is stopped down.Reduced field of view Digital SLRs will avoid most of this effect.I see varying amounts of physical vignetting at 24mm when using a standard thickness circular polarizer filter -I recommend using a slim circular polarizer filter for this lens.

Also common with lenses in this focal length range is distortion.The 24-105 L shows noticeable barrel distortion from 24mm until disappearing near 40mm.Pincushion distortion begins at 80mm and becomes mild at 105mm.As usual, this distortion is most noticeable of a full-frame body.

Flare Well, flare is very well controlled with one exception.In very early models of this lens, a very bright point-light source positioned precisely in the corner of a full frame viewfinder with the lens set to 24mm and not stopped down muchwill result in often beautiful but generally not wanted rays of flare.The rays gets smaller as the lens is stopped down.The rays fade away as the focal length is increased until completely disappearing at 35mm or so.

The 24-105 L's color and contrast are excellent.The rectangular baffle (above) over the rear of the lens is purposed to increase contrast and reduce flare/ghosting.CA (Chromatic Aberration) is overall well controlled, but expect to see some CA in areas of harsh contrast toward full-frame borders at both ends of the focal length range.

Theoretically, IS enables this lens can be shot handheld at shutter speeds as low as 1/3 second at 24mm on a full frame body.Your results will depend on how steady you are, but I am seeing sharp shots at 1/3 second (and many longer) at 24mmand 1/6 second (and longer) at 105mm.Very nice.A tripod was not used for most of the 24-105mm sample pictures (link below) with shutter speeds below 1 second.I would unscientifically rate this lens as delivering a keeper rate as high or higher than any lens I own or have owned.And most of my throw-aways are the fault the person behind the lens.

The extra 35mm of focal length on the long end of the range is a nice advantage of the 24-105 L.You can get an idea of what this difference looks like in the focal length comparison above.This additional focal length is especially nice for portraits on a full-frame body.At short distances, the 24-105 L at 24mm is wider than the 24-70 L at 24mm (lenses are rated at infinity but subject framing can vary at close focus distances). 153554b96e
