As with the Fields collection, this method is not generally needed, but in some cases it may be desirable to use it, particularly in multiuser environments where other users may add or delete fields.
Index Object Properties
For Jet workspaces only, the Clustered property indicates whether an Index object represents a clustered index or not. By default, its value is False for newly created indexes.
A clustered index is one in which the physical order of rows is the same as the indexed order; clustered indexes are used by some IISAM (Installable Indexed
Sequential Access Method) database formats, such as dBASE, Paradox, and Excel.
The property is read/write for unappended indexes and read-only for an index that has been appended to an Indexes collection.See more

Habit Number Four: Exercise
I DON’T KNOW HOW ELSE TO EMPHASIZE THIS POINT TO YOU, other than to tell you straight out: you have to get on an exercise regimen. Before you sit down and turn on that TV, I want you to Stop and Think. Ask yourself, “Have I exercised enough today? Have I walked enough? Have I gotten on my stationary bike? Have I taken the dog for a walk?” Bottom line—you have no business sitting down and watching TV until you take care of yourself first. And that means you better get off your rump and go exercise.
Why? Obesity is going through the roof. More than 60 percent of the population in the United States is obese or overweight, according to the National Institutes of Health. It’s even affecting our kids: 15 percent of our children from ages six to nineteen are now overweight. Worldwide, one billion people are considered overweight, and 22 million children under the age of five are overweight. It’s an epidemic!
Every year, new studies show the health benefits of exercise for preventing numerous health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. You better get up, Stop and Think about what you’re doing, and get a routine going. You need to get out of the habits that are making you become the “blimp.”See more

Ultimately, the goal of performance measurement is to increase your impact. The most effective way to do this is through careful measurement and management of your organization’s projects. If your social impact measurement system is mature, it can provide you with a better understanding of how you are investing your resources and the specific results they are producing. And it can provide the information you need for careful and dynamic management of activities that is responsive to outcomes, needs, and changes in the environment. In this chapter, we introduce a five-level model that you can use to describe and evaluate your current social impact measurement system and to generate ideas about how you could improve that system.
Our model, shown in Figure 23, uses a stepwise or maturity-stage format that highlights the characteristics of impact management systems. The model has five categories, which represent general profiles of organizational capability, though your organization may find it has characteristics of two or more levels. Organizations usually move through the levels as they become more experienced in evaluating impact and in using this information to make decisions. Each level encompasses the capabilities of all the categories below that level.See more

Elizabeth Bishop: the moth and the mother
The caterpillar on the leaf
—William Blake, 1803
Before describing the life and some of the works of Elizabeth Bishop, I want to present something of the psychological resonances evoked by a ubiquitous insect, the moth, that I intend to make relevant to my description.
Moths can evoke the destructive and the vulnerable: specifically, both destructive and vulnerable parents and the children who are drawn to, have identified with, and are haunted by them. The moth can serve as an allusion to, and perhaps be an unconscious symbol of, the mother. I illustrate this with a clinical example and a literary one—the latter featuring the great American poet Elizabeth Bishop. Her life story contains soul murder and illustrates the complexities that adhere to both the pathological and the potentially creative consequences of early parental loss and rejection.See more
