The field of study “Humanities” included “Cultural Studies”. 11. In evidence, Ms. Jansen, Examinations Officer, Examinations and Tests Section (“ETS”), Department of Management, told the Tribunal that in 2013 the CEB discussed in depth what an applicant would have to have studied in order to include his or her study programme under “Cultural Studies”. (...) In 2013, it was determined that new staff members who had studied “Cultural Studies” might be needed in the field of Administration, but not those who had studied languages. 46. (...) The Applicant disposes of a Bachelor of Arts in French, with Russian Studies; ten out of the fifteen courses he took in the framework of these studies relate to foreign culture, and are thus presumably acceptable as “Cultural studies” for the UN Administration; the remaining courses were in UN languages which were considered an “advantage” and “desirable” in the relevant job opening; h.

Approximately 75% of these patients proved to be culture positive with BAL as the only source of a positive culture confirming the diagnosis of TB. (...) For the purposes of this discussion we can consider the diagnostic test “D” to refer to AFB microscopy and the “gold standard” as culture. Smear+ Smear- Total Culture+ a b a+b Culture- c d c+d Total a+c b+d Sensitivity = a/a+c Specificity = d/b+d PPV = a/a+b NPV = d/c+d The numbers [a, b, c, and d] come directly from the results of a trial. (...) Thus, measures to improve the tests in the example where Sm = ZN smear and TB = culture. Prevalence 2% 5% 10% 20% Sm+, TB+ [True positives] 14 35 70 140 Sm+, TB- [false positives] 20 19 18 16 Sm-, TB+ [False negative] 6 15 30 60 Sm-, TB- [True negatives] 960 931 882 784 In low prevalence areas, of course, specificity is VERY important, as there are a large number of true negative patients being smeared.
