Angle Line

§ February 24th, 2011 § Filed under General § Tagged Comments Off on Angle Line

(F) The width of the bony base is approximately equal to 80% of the base of the wings. (G) The width of the base of the wings is equal to the distance intercanthal or one eye width. (H) The alar rims should have a slight outward flare in an inferior direction. (I) the lines connecting the tip defining points, the rest area supratip, and the angle of columellar lobular form two equilateral triangles. (J) A line outlining the alar rims and columella resembles a gull in gentle flight. (K) With the eyes in frontal gaze, the nasofrontal angle is at an intermediate level between the upper lashes and the crease supratarsal.

(L) The nasal dorsum, in women, is approximately 2 mm behind and parallel to a line just above the nasofrontal angle to the tip defining points. In men, the dorsum is slightly higher. (M) 50-60% of the tip in front of a vertical line next to the most salient part of an upper lip in normal position. (N) tip projection equals alar base width. (Or) of the rotation is determined by the degree of the nasolabial angle, measured as the angle between the vertical and a line drawn through the anterior and posterior edges of the nostrils (normal 95-100 degrees in women and 90-95 degrees in men) (nasolabial angle is not the same as columellar labial angle). (P) The columellar lobular angle is approximately 45 degrees. (Q) At a baseline, contour of the nasal base forms an equilateral triangle, lobular to nostril ratio is 1:2.

Longer View

They prefer credits in local currency or short-term loans in foreign currency. They will be afraid of a sudden, massive devaluation (such as happened in Mexico overnight). Your lender also will be afraid to lend money, because these lenders can not be sure that borrowers have the extra dinars to pay for claims if such devaluation. Naturally, a devaluation increases the amount of dinars to pay for a loan in foreign currency. This is bad from both the macro economic point of view (that of the economy as a whole) – and micro-economic point of view (that of the single firm). From the point of micro-economic view of short-term loans must be returned long before companies that have provided matured to the point of being able to pay.

These short-term obligations to the charge, amend its financial statements for the worse and sometimes put their very viability at risk. From the macro-economic point of view, it is always better to have longer maturity debt to pay less each year. The longer the credits a country (individual companies are part of a country) has to return – the best of their creditworthiness with the financial community. Another aspect: foreign credits are a competition to credits provided by the local banking system. If companies and individuals do not take loans from abroad for fear of a devaluation – they help to create a monopoly of local banks. Monopolies have a way to set the highest price possible (interest rates) for their merchandise (= the money they lend).
