From Lansing to London, public employee compensation has emerged as a central issue for governments struggling to balance their budgets.
The change in the way workers' compensation will be billed to towns, has left officials in a tough spot for balancing budgets.
Local government and its ancillary agencies have had to play a delicate balancing game in determining employee compensation since the bottom fell out of the national economy five years ago.

A Bootstrapping Approach for Generating Maximally Path-Entangled Photon States
We can investigate just state reproduction if we allow attenuation to be applied to beam d, thus “balancing” the Mach-Zehnder Interferometer by compensating for the loss introduced by the teleporter (see Fig.3(b)).
Interferometric Tests of Teleportation
However decreased photon flux in the teleported arm (reduced efficiency) can be compensated by re-balancing the unteleported arm of the interferometer.
