8) After UTICo's representatives discussed the terms of UTICo's services with the Ukrainian Deputy Prosecutor, Nikolai Obikhod, UTICo and UPGO reached their first agreement on May 15, 1998 (May Agreement), in which provided UTICo would receive a 12% commission on all assets returned to Ukraine.
On November 26, 2010 UTICo filed a complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts suing UPGO and the Bureau for Representing Ukrainian Interests in International and Foreign Courts (the Bureau) for breach of contract for rendering services to UPGO without any compensation.
Bureau for Representing Ukrainian Interests in Int'l & Foreign Courts, the First Circuit disallowed UPGO from claiming sovereign immunity based on the commercial activity exception of the FSIA.
The First Circuit determined that there was a sufficient nexus between UPGO's acts and the United States because the offer for the unilateral contract took place in the United States and it was through the offer that UPGO engaged in commerce in the U.
In analyzing whether UPGO was exempt from sovereign immunity, the First Circuit correctly applied the commercial activity exception.
53) It is irrelevant that the entire purpose of the commercial activity between UPGO and UTICo was to benefit a sovereign.
Participants who were able to complete this assessment performed two timed UPGO trials, and the fastest trial was used for analysis.
Compared with CON, persons with MS had significantly poorer performance on all measures of LLPF: 27 percent shorter WALK distance, 53 percent slower UPGO speed, and reduced reach lengths in the ANT, MED, and POST directions (right: 8.
Relative adiposity, %Fat, was associated with gait and balance measures of LLPF in CON, while %Fat was associated with UPGO performance only in persons with MS.
05) were determined for (1) %Fat and group, such that higher %Fat and MS were associated with slower UPGO time; and (2) LM-LEG/ BM and group, with a lower ratio and MS being associated with shorter WALK distance, slower UPGO time, and lower SEBT composite score.
This is especially true for tasks that mimic activities of daily living that require moving the BM in an ambulatory fashion, such as UPGO and WALK.
While disease status was the strongest predictor of all measures of LLPF, objectively measured PA was independently related to gait-related LLPF assessments, WALK and UPGO, in both groups, providing further evidence that PA is an important modifiable risk factor to prevent physical disability related to ambulatory activities of daily living.
