Necessary and sufficient conditions on the weight v and the measure σ for the operator Kf(s)=a(s)b(s)k(s,y)f(y)dy to be bounded from Lvp[0,) to Lσq(S) are given. Here a(s) and b(s) are similarly ordered functions and k(s,y) satisfies a modified GHO condition. Nearly block diagonal decompositions of positive operators are introduced as is the concept of a normalizing measure. An application is made to estimates for the remainder in a Taylor approximation.
