Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Economics - Macro-economics, general, grade: 1,0, Wayne State University (Department of Economics), course: Macroeconomics, 26 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: On 1st May 2004 ten new member states joined the European Union (EU), e.g. Estonia, Poland and Slovenia. The countries won't adopt the euro as their new currency immediately, because they first have to show that their economies have converged with the economy of the euro zone.Presently, the efforts and opinions of the new members differ about the adoption of the single currency. For instance, the Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa told the press in February 2006 that there "is nothing on the path ahead" that could endanger the euro adoption in 2007. The government pursues a tight fiscal policy to meet all entry requirements. Recently, it introduced a dual pricing - that means all prices of goods and services are marked in tolars as well as euros - to raise consumer awareness in the preparation for the euro adoption.1 Contrarily, other countries are skeptical. The leader of the Polish conservative party Jaroslaw Kaczynski said during a campaign that he "doesn't see any benefits in adopting the euro. Euro adoption would lead to lower exports, lower national income and higher unemployment." The Estonian Sirje Karu said in an interview, that "Estonians are scared. We heard that when Finland adopted the euro, it took them ...

In this, her first book, Evelyn Robinson poignantly and thoroughly describes the losses experienced by all of those whose lives have been affected by adoption separation and the grief that they suffer. The book is based on the author's personal experience as a mother who lost a child through adoption and her experience as a social worker who has worked extensively in the area of post-adoption counselling with adults. The book graphically describes the disenfranchised grief associated with adoption and suggests ways in which that hidden grief can be acknowledged and confronted. The author explains how both her personal and her professional experiences have led her to the conclusion that alternative care for children in need must no longer include adoption.

Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,00, Charles University in Prague (Institute of Economic Studies), language: English, abstract: This paper analyses the process of knowledge-base adoption in the enterprise environment. Using data from two knowledge-management systems operated by the company, Semanta, s.r.o. we studied the day-to-day interactions of employees using the system and identified the important drivers of system adoption. We began by studying the effect of co-workers' collaborative activities on knowledge creation within the system. It was found that they had a positive and significant impact upon overall knowledge creation and thus on adoption. Secondly, we explored how the newly defined concept of gamification could help determine and encourage an increase in knowledge creation. The use of gamification tools, such as the "Hall of Fame" page, turned out to have significant influence in the adoption process. Thirdly, we examined how users continually seek knowledge within the system and how asking for missing information and being supplied with answers has an impact on adoption rates. It was shown that the quicker the responses and the more experts dealing with requests the greater the impact on knowledge base adoption. Finally, we showed that the size and character of the company deploying the knowledge management system does not influence the adoption drivers. This paper represents an effo...

Eric was perfectly happy being one half of a dual income, no kids family. Having the freedom to travel the world with his wife Christine, while indulging his hobbies and furthering his education and career, was a pretty sweet life. Christine wanted to be a mom. Though he was scared he didn’t have what it took to be a good dad, Eric wanted to fulfill his wife’s dream. After years of trying to conceive, however, the couple received a devastating diagnosis: infertility.For Christine, adoption was the obvious answer. Eric wasn’t so sure.In Finding My Son: A Father’s Adoption Journey, author Eric Odell-Hein offers an unfiltered view into the heart and mind of a man who has experienced the sometimes messy and often awkward process of becoming a father through adoption. Encouraging men to acknowledge the fears they don’t want to admit while advocating a thoughtful, deliberate transparency as the best approach to even the most unnatural, uncomfortable aspects of the adoption process, Eric shares his misgivings and mistakes with an honesty that does not deny his insecurities.A valuable resource for any man considering growing his family through adoption—or anyone seeking to understand the process—this engaging memoir is a testament to the beautiful gift of adoption and a touching account of a father’s love.

'In the best interest of the children' describes the author's experience of his daughters' adoption in the US. For Belgium to recognize this adoption, the author's family even had to take the Belgian State to Court. This far-reaching experience encouraged the author to reflect about the topic of international adoption. Why is adoption being treated as a suspicious institution by the same agencies which claim to act only in 'the best interest of the children'?This book denounces the practices described above, and calls for action to change them.Professor Elizabeth Bartholet, Morris Wasserstein Professor at Law, Faculty Director Child Advocacy Program, Harvard Law School: "Key forces mounting the attack [against international adoption] claim the child human rights mantle, arguing that such adoption denies heritage rights, and often involves abusive practices. Many nations assert rights to hold onto the children born within their borders, and others support these demands citing subsidiarity principles. But children's most basic human rights to family are at the heart of the true meaning of subsidiarity, and children will often find family only in international adoption.This book is important because it tells the story about how governments and government officials, claiming to represent the best interest of the children, prevent good people from giving children the nurturing home they so desperately need. We need more adoptive parents like thi...

Digital banking offers banks new opportunities and challenges. This paper gives a comprehension of how demographic characteristics, social components and consumer perception and attitudes towards digital banking influence its adoption. Digital banking has been developed in order to enable consumers to gain a greater share in the banking market. In Mauritius, there is little awareness about the emergence of digital banking despite the fact that this service is presently representing an important share in the banking market. This is because digital banking is a new industry here, and therefore, consumer acceptance and use of digital banking is still limited. To date, very little research has been conducted into factors which influence consumer adoption of digital banking in Mauritius, and so, therefore, there is a need for a study such as this.A research framework in light of the diffusion of innovation theory was utilized to identify elements that would impact the adoption of digital banking. This report has evaluated current literature and conclusions about this innovation banking technology. It has likewise reviewed the elements, including consumer demographic c...

Information and communication technology has direct role to play in education and if used appropriately can bring many benefits to the classroom. ICT use in school management is important if its impact has to be felt in education. The perception and experience of teachers and school administrators play an important role in adoption of ICT schools. Computer use in Kenyan schools is still in its early phase despite the introduction of ICT the 70s. The potential of ICT as a tool to aid administration of schools has not been fully exploited.Despite the efforts by the stakeholders to integrate ICT in schools,the level of integration is low. Hence it is crucial to investigate the issues pertaining to the low level of adoption of ICT in schools. This study investigated the adoption and use of ICT enhancing efficiency in management of public secondary schools. The study findings are expected to be helpful to educational managers, policy makers and scholers interested in ICT use in schools and education sector in general.

The preservation of the Monetary Union for Europe is linked to the future of a whole continent. The currency crisis impacts everybody. It is unequivocal that major efforts were necessary to prevent the break-up of the euro area. However, some of the countermeasures led to disagreements and fierce criticism. A long-term solution must be found. Many proposals haven been contributed in order to do so but are they both expedient and agreeable?This publication approaches this question by beginning with a brief theoretical introduction about the fundamental advantages and disadvantages of the Monetary Union. Based on this, the history of the crisis of the euro system is described. It becomes clear that a key problem in finding a solution is the disagreement about the causes of the currency crisis. Further chapters summarize which rescue measures were used and analyze how they are already solving the weaknesses of the euro. Here, the reader will see that there is a long way before the Monetary Union stands on a stable framework. In this book, suggested solutions are discussed and analyzed, before finally a combination of different solutions is emphasized.In this book:- Monetary Union,- Currency Crisis,- Euro Reforms,- History of the euro.

In 2003, there were 39,500 Chinese children living in the US who were adopted from China. While 113 were adopted from 1989-1991, in 2002, 5,900 Chinese children were adopted by US parents. Little is known about the scientific, psychological, or social issues surrounding the adopted children and their parents. The study used a qualitative approach to assess experiences of US parents who had adopted Chinese children. In this study, expected and unexpected results occurred. Analysis of the interviews yielded six major themes: 1) Parents' descriptions of their own childhood family structure and childhood experiences; 2) Parents' expectations, prior to and during the adoption experience, for the adoption to improve the family unit; 3) Changes in the parents' relationships after the adoption; 4) The adoptive parents' expectations of the adopted child; 5) The most challenging experiences of the adoptive parents; and 6) the meaning of the adoption for the parents.

An in-depth, enlightening look at the integrated reporting movement The Integrated Reporting Movement explores the meaning of the concept, explains the forces that provide momentum to the associated movement, and examines the motives of the actors involved. The book posits integrated reporting as a key mechanism by which companies can ensure their own long-term sustainability by contributing to a sustainable society. Although integrated reporting has seen substantial development due to the support of companies, investors, and the initiatives of a number of NGOs, widespread regulatory intervention has yet to materialize. Outside of South Africa, adoption remains voluntary, accomplished via social movement abetted, to varying degrees, by market forces. In considering integrated reporting’s current state of play, the authors provide guidance to ensure wider adoption of the practice and success of the movement, starting with how companies can improve their own reporting processes. But the support of investors, regulators, and NGOs is also important. All will benefit, as will society as a whole. Readers will learn how integrated reporting has evolved over the years, where frameworks and standards are today, and the practices that help ensure effective implementation—including, but not limited to an extensive discussion of information technology’s role in reporting and the importance of corporate reporting websites. The authors introduce the concepts of an annual board of directors’ “Statement of Significant Audiences and Materiality” and a “Sustainable Value Matrix” tool that translates the statement into management decisions. The book argues that the appropriate combination of market and regulatory forces to speed adoption will vary by country, concluding with four specific recommendations about what must be done to accelerate high quality adoption of integrated reporting around the world.

2952 руб.
The oil and gas industry is at a crossroads. Recent low prices, rapidly growing alternative fuels like renewables, the permanent swing from peak oil to super abundance, shifting consumer preferences, and global pressures to decarbonize suggest a challenged industry for the foreseeable future. Digital advances offer ways to lower costs of production, improve productivity, reduce carbon emissions, and regain public confidence. A wait-and-see attitude to digital innovation has failed many industries already, and the leaders of oil and gas urgently need guidance on how digital both disrupts and enhances their industry.Written by the world’s leading experts on the intersection of digital technologies and the oil and gas industry, Bits, Bytes, and Barrels sets out the reasons why adoption is slow, describes the size and scale of both the opportunity and the threat from digital, identifies the key digital technologies and the role that they play in a digital future, and recommends a set of actions for leaders to take to accelerate the adoption of digital in the business.Providing an independent and expert perspective, Bits, Bytes, and Barrels addresses the impacts of digital across the breadth of the industry—from onshore to offshore, from upstream to midstream to integrated—and outlines a roadmap to help the decision-makers at all levels of the industry take meaningful action toward promising and rewarding digital adoption.

Some of the difficult situations they have faced are simply part of a family life; others are as a direct result of the children's disabilities and difficulties, including autism, attention deficit hyper-activity disorder, foetal alcohol syndrome, attachment disorder and sensory issues.A story of adoption, autism and coming together as a family, this book describes with honesty and humour how the behaviour of the children has often challenged the adults around them. It also explores the process of diagnosis and the difficulty of getting the right support both for the children and their parents, with insights for all parents and teachers of children with complex needs.The book is a unique insight into the twin challenges of adoption and disability, an invaluable read for prospective adopters and adoptive parents as well as natural parents of children with additional support needs. It is equally valuable for practitioners, as it gives an insight into the family life of those parenting such children and how best to support them.

The important thing is for the organizations and their managements to take initiatives on how to i...

Stiglitz’s evisceration of the euro as the cause of political and economic turmoil in Europe today.From the very start, the decision to create a single currency for Europe was a major mistake founded on faulty ideology and misconceived economic principles. The economic half-truths that guided the construction of the eurozone no longer hold water in 2016 and are outdated.The eurozone is a group of 19 countries with very different political, cultural, and economic systems. By binding them together on minimal convergence criteria and without the structural backbone to keep them unified, the eurozone failed to create an ecosystem of shared risk and reward that would also provide the flexibility necessary for individual countries to manage crises autonomously. What’s more, the austerity measures applied to crisis countries have been unfairly punitive and… PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book. Inside this Instaread Summary of The Euro by Joseph E.

E-invoicing has the potential to reduce supply chain transaction cost, space, and time as well as unnecessary administrative burdens on Nigerian companies. Both the supplier and the buyer will enjoy the benefits of cost reduction, increased efficiency and enhanced productivity. Job creation will be the reward from e-invoicing to Nigeria as a country as its adoption will pave the way for the new start-up companies as e-invoicing service providers. Above all, the practical implication of this book on behavioural intention to adopt e-invoicing on Nigerian society is the smallest carbon footprint of invoicing through reduction in carbon dioxide (C02). All these add up to present e-invoicing as the need of the moment.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, grade: 1,0, European Business School - International University Schloß Reichartshausen Oestrich-Winkel (Institute of Research on Information Systems), language: English, abstract: Service-oriented architecture (SOA), often enthusiastically emphasized as the future IT infrastructure, is currently a big topic in the IT community. In their seminar thesis, the authors provide an introduction into the technology and management possibilities of SOA.Based on an analysis of literature, the authors analyze the strength, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats for SOA as an IS architecture, including the advantages and disadvantages from both technological and management view. Using this analysis, a framework is proposed that shows that various determinants need to be considered when planning the adoption of SOA in a corporate context. The study shows that beyond capital requirements, also strategic, process, and cultural determinants play a significant role. Considering these, the authors derive a set of four generic adoption strategies for SOA in practice, highlighting exemplary scenarios in which companies should implement SOA themselves or with the help of external providers.While the study highlights the need for further scientific analysis of SOA adoption, managers and executives of IT can use it's results to assess whether SOA fits their current situation or not.

This booklet is the collection of blog posts, written on a weekly basis during the peak years of the euro-crisis between 2010 and 2012, with a focus on the German crisis management. They witness the political confusion, the difficult search for solutions; the general stress of the Euro-system and Europe at large; and the overall claim for a German leadership during the first month of the crisis. Germany needed long to correspond to this claim and was blamed doing "too little too late". The blog posts also witness the political clash between the quest for "big and rapid solutions" (e.g. Eurobonds) from many European countries and the German Euro-rescue strategy finally chosen, combining fiscal compact, sound fiscal policies and structural reforms.

Master's Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: 1, Donau-Universität Krems (Department for Management and Economics), course: International Financial Environment, language: English, abstract: The member states of the euro area have delegated the framing of monetary policy to a European Central Bank, while fiscal policy remains in responsibility of the national governments. In a monetary union, counter-cyclical fiscal policy can deliver only limited help to minimize the loss of monetary policy for adjustment to idiosyncratic shocks. As fiscal capacity at EMU level could transfer a significant part of the cyclical aspects of fiscal policy to the su¬pranational level and help the euro area members to focus their fiscal policy on structural balances. A variety of such risk-sharing mechanisms have been suggested in the academic literature. This Master's Thesis evaluates the concept of euro area wide unemployment insurance, in comparison with cyclical transfers between the Eurozone members based on their business cycle position. The European unemployment insurance scheme surpasses other concepts with regards to the criteria distributional neutrality and transparency, both of which are essential in order to gain support of European policymakers and voters.

Many environmental problems have to do with energy use, it is therefore very surprising that profitable opportunities to reduce energy consumption, awarding both economical and environmental benefits, are not more widely implemented. This work lists examples of such technological opportunities, discusses the barriers to their adoption, and suggests policy solutions to overcome these barriers. The focus group for this research are municipalities as energy users, mainly in Israel and Sweden. The author concludes that increase use of environmental technologies is possible, many times with economic gains even in the short range. Municipalities alone cannot be expected to take upon themselves the risks and costs of adoption of these new technologies, and therefore central government has a crucial role in creating a supportive environment for such a process. The main barrier to such a development is conservatism of public officials and decision makers.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2012 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: Merit, London School of Economics (European Institute), course: Politics and Government in the EU, language: English, abstract: The non-compliance to the Stability and Growth Pact in the early 2000's was a direct challenge to the co-operative virtue of EU fiscal governance, and the fact that its occurrence played little role in affecting the stability for Europe's most significant achievement yet - the Single Currency - was in itself a truly peculiar incident. Betrayed by the deeds of the two locomotives of the European Project, Germany and France, only four years after the adoption of the Euro - yet the currency strides on and none of the adverse effect that Economists feared had happened. But was that it? The fact that both of these nations could escape sanction by coercing other nations in debt to vote against a punishment for their excessive fiscal deficit announced a deep functional fault in the enforcement of agreed EU treaties on the Commission's part; and knowing that the stability of the Euro hinged upon an incomplete fiscal federation where fiscal responsibility laid heavily on the shoulders of the member states, there was indeed a commitment crisis exhibiting itself in 2003. This paper aimed to answer two questions: first, what have caused the member states, such as France and most curiously, Germany, the one who had stressed the need for fi...

For a birthmom, adoption is such a unique loss. When she chooses adoption for her child, she sometimes finds herself unable to deal with the overwhelming sense of loss and sadness. To whom can she turn for encouragement? Traditional counseling doesn't always help. Her child isn't dead, so a memorial service can't provide the closure she so desperately needs. This is the world of the birthmother. She is misunderstood, grieving in spite of her good decision. Millions of these women are alone and hurting. They are angry at God, at themselves, and at their families. "Heart of a Birthmom" uses the Bible and inspiring, applicable devotions to: • offer encouragement in the face of doubt and grief, • offer love in spite of how birthmoms view themselves, • reflect the light of a holy God, and • challenge readers to explore a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. Whether a birthmother chose adoption last month or ten years ago, "Heart of a Birthmom" is a book whose time has come.

The European Central Bank has continually reduced interest rates as a policy measure to counter the sovereign debt crisis and this thesis examines the implications of this venture. From Germany's perspective, the viability of reverting to the Deutschmark in times of monetary instability is also explored. The results, based on the deductive reasoning principle of the Austrian School, are also discussed.

China's One-Child Policy has been one of the most prevalent population policies thus far. The strict enforcement of it has created various repercussions predominantly pertaining to the abandonment of female infants. This book primarily identifies and analyzes China's adoption process and how transracial as well as transnational adoption has shaped the identity of the adoptee as well as the adoptive parents within Western culture. It is different from other research, as it focuses on how China's reproductive technology not only helps them as a 'sender' country to control their population, but also allows for the West to adapt to a new form of immigration thereby reassessing the term 'flexible citizenship' and re-instating new forms of kinship systems based upon multiculturalism. The research applies several theoretical frameworks in order to critically analyze the situation and assess how these new social constructions have affected or will affect scholarly feminist thought.

Practical techniques for guiding parents through the stages of adoption and beyond «This book makes a significant contribution to both a greater understanding of adoption and its complex dynamic constellations as well as to serving those who are or come across adoption families, many of whom count on us adoption-informed mental health professionals to clarify and facilitate the challenges they face.» —From the Foreword by Henri Parens, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Thomas Jefferson University, Training and Supervising Analyst, Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia «What most people don't know about adoption could fill a book—and this is the book. Finally sorting myth from science, Working with Adoptive Parents will give therapists, and quite a few nonprofessionals considering adoption, the real story of what it means to make this momentous choice. Better yet, it does so without letting the data speak in place of the parents themselves, in all their fear, doubt, and joy.» —Jesse Green, author of The Velveteen Father: An Unexpected Journey to Parenthood Editors Virginia Brabender and April Fallon are clinical psychologists and also adoptive parents whose families are acquainted with both the uncertainty and joy of adoption. In Working with Adoptive Parents, they offer an in-depth treatment of the distinctive needs, feelings, impulses, expectations, and conflicts that adoptive parents experience through the stages of adoption and beyond. This volume offers a comprehensive picture of adoption through an exploration of the experiences and developmental processes of the adoptive parent. Featuring contributions from mental health professionals whose careers have focused on work with families through the adoption process, this unique book: Covers the theory, research, and practice of adoptive parenting throughout the life cycle Explores the issues unique to the adoptive mother and adoptive father as they traverse the stages of parenting Offers a close look at families with special needs children Acknowledges and explores the great diversity among adoptive families and the kinship networks in which they are embedded Examines attachment issues between adoptive parent and child Providing a framework for therapists to conceptualize their work with adoptive parents, Working with Adoptive Parents clarifies and facilitates the journey that many of these families face.
