IMF Coordinated Direct Investment Survey). This is much higher than in most other European countries. However, the outbound stock of FDI from Belgium is of equal size, and around 35 percent of the outstanding inbound FDI is in special purpose vehicles (referred to as “captive financial institutions and money lenders” in the national accounts) ( Duprez and Van Nieuwenhuyze, 2016 ). This suggests that a large share of FDI comprises purely financial flows running through Belgium—rather than greenfield investments that contribute to the Belgian economy. These financial

Galactic Cosmic Ray Modulation Up to Recent Solar Cycles

Cosmic ray neutron monitor counts obtained by different ground-based detectors have been used to study the galactic cosmic ray modulation during the last four solar activity cycles. Since long, systematic correlative studies have been per-formed to establish a significant relationship between the cosmic ray intensity and different helio-spheric activity parameters, and the study is extended to a recent solar cycle (23). In the present work, the yearly average of 10.7 cm solar radio flux and the interplanetary magnetic field strength (IMF, B) have been used to find correlation of the yearly average cosmic ray intensity derived from different neutron monitors. It is found that for four solar cycles (20-23) the cosmic ray intensity is anti-correlated with the 10.7 cm solar radio flux and the IMF, B value with some discrepancy. However, this is in a good positive correlation with the flux of mentioned wavelength for four different solar cycles. The IMF, B shows a weak correlation with cosmic rays for solar cycle 20, and a good anti-correlation for solar cycles 21-23.

1 Introduction Impaired morning function (IMF) due to joint pain and stiffness is a commonly reported feature of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) [ 1 – 3 ]. Up to 69% of patients in the large QUEST-RA database of more than 5,000 patients experienced IMF [ 4 ]. IMF occurs irrespective of disease activity and is not restricted to patients with poorly controlled RA. According to the QUEST-RA data, IMF was reported in 44% of patients considered to have low disease activity or be in remission [ 4 ]. Evidence suggests that IMF has a significant impact on patient
