Robert Sefton The Welfare State, Individual Freedom and Morality

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2012 in the subject Politics - Miscellaneous, grade: none, , course: Politics, language: English, abstract: Every since the creation of welfare states in the US and Western Europe there has been enumerable debates as to what extent the existence of such welfare states undermines individual freedom. These debates raise such questions as how should we define freedom? To what extent is freedom compatible with attempts made by the state to promote the welfare of its citizens? Does liberty reside in independence from state interference? Does the provision of welfare impose constraints on individual liberty? However this text goes further and questions whether morality should be taken into account when deciding who should receive state welfare? And whether state interference goes against human nature?

Shigi S.J. Evarist William Human empowerment towards sustainable economic development

This book is an economic and philosophical discourse on sustainable economic development inspired by Ujamaa and the philosophy of self-reliance advocated by Julius Nyerere as a policy towards social and economic development. The book explores human empowerment as a means to sustainable economic development. It argues that human empowerment in developing countries can build on Nyerere's approach to development founded on community participation. However, self-reliance is not possible without the ability to build sustainable development and-, self-reliance philosophy and efforts towards development in their current forms have lacked the ability to intensify people's capability. Human empowerment is needed to produce people with vision, who can reflect on situations, initiate relevant and responsible action, and thereby transform situations for the common good. The empowerment I recommend is endowed on education, entrepreneurship and civil societies. Building on Amartya Sen's philosophy of the capability approach to development, empowerment will provide relevant solution for developing countries to break away from economic dependency and the vicious cycle of poverty.

Mamta Sheth, Chhaya Goel Realizing Human Rights

The 21st Century is highly complex. The return on investment, be it public sector or corporate is measured in terms of material returns than in terms of human development. Human beings are most neglected. Now the question is - "Does the declaration of Human Rights by the UN ensure Human Rights?" Respect for Human Rights demands not only Awareness of Human Rights, but also, favorable attitude towards Human Rights. The vision of Human Rights Declaration by the UN will be realized only when these Rights are internalized and valuably inclined by the entire globe.The present volume includes the doctoral work of Ms. Mamta Sheth on designing, developing and implementing an Educational Program on Human Rights for Pre-Service and In-Service Teachers. The study has very well demonstrated that how the understanding of Human Rights was enhanced among the Teachers. The Educational Program on Human Rights was found to be effective in developing favorable attitudes of the Teachers. Also, the Program developed by the investigator could significantly initiate the teachers in the areas of Case Studies on Human Rights. Hope the State, Society, Judiciary, Education and all will value this volume.

OUTSPOKEN Pastor Troy Bunch Change Is Coming. A Spiritual Metamorphosis

Change and God are two words, which define life. Something must change in order to create change. The King James Bible states it all profoundly in Ecclesiastes 3:1To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Merriam -Webster describes one definition of change as undergoing transformation, transition, or substitution. To give a different position, course, or direction to replace with another. The change a human being experiences in life often emulates the changes and stages a Caterpillar/Butterfly experiences. A Caterpillar goes through a life cycle known as complete metamorphosis, which is a striking alteration in appearance, character, or circumstances. The Caterpillar/Butterflys life cycle includes egg, larva, pupa, and adult. The life cycle of a human includes: Infancy, Childhood, Adolescence and Adulthood.The main job of an adult butterflys life is to reproduce. After a female butterfly mates, she searches for the proper host plant to lay her eggs and the cycle begins again. Such is the cycle of a human being.In this book Troy Bunch uses poetry & short stories as an example to show the different changes human beings experience in life. From natural and physical to emotional and spiritual. From inspirational to sensational. From confrontational to peace. From hate to love. From confusion and illusion to revelation and reality. From vanity to prosperity. From self-centeredness to sincerity. From oneness to relationship. From feeling in...

John Marsh The Liberal Delusion John Marsh The Liberal Delusion Новинка

John Marsh The Liberal Delusion

Is western civilisation based on a mistaken understanding of humanity? Fundamental to any society is its comprehension of human nature. It shapes attitudes and policies on a whole range of issues: interpersonal relations, child-rearing, discipline and punishment, economics and welfare. For millennia western societies were based on the idea that human nature is flawed. This was turned upside down 300 years ago during the Enlightenment by writers such as Rousseau, who argued that we are born good and later warped by parents and society; a liberal view of human nature which is now being challenged by scientific discoveries in the fields of the mind, the brain, and genetics (including the Human Genome), evolutionary psychology, and anthropology. This fundamental change has had profound effects. If we are essentially good then we can safely maximize freedom and abandon morality, religion and tradition. Many aspects of life have been liberalised - sexual behaviour, alcohol consumption, censorship, gambling, divorce laws and economic activity. Economic liberals thought free markets were rational and good and favoured minimal government interference and light-touch regulations. This led to the credit crunch and the greatest financial crisis since World War Two. Many parents now hesitate to discipline their own children. The belief that we are essentially good but corrupted by society has also influenced penal policy. Liberals see criminals as victims, not as wrongdoers; because surel...

Неустановленный автор Life Cycle Costing as a Tool of Project Controlling in the Field of Mechanical Engineering

Master's Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Controlling, grade: 1,3, Technical University of Munich, language: English, abstract: Today, the purchase decision about machines and plants is not made on initial procurement costs alone, but rather on the life cycle costs as well. There is the danger that the machine's follow-up costs exceed the acquisition price. Therefore, the life cycle cost estimation increasingly becomes an essential tool for a cost-effective investment decision.This thesis investigates the life cycle cost calculation of machines and plants as an investment decision tool from the operator's perspective. After outlining the significance and conception of life cycle costing in the field of mechanical engineering, existing cost estimation models and approaches, as well as specific values of dependability, are presented. Therein, especially the problematic nature of operation cost (follow-up cost) estimation, caused mainly by maintenance and repair costs, is discussed. In order to improve the life cycle cost estimation, along with some proposals for enhancing the existing methods, a new approach based on the Weibull and Gamma distribution is provided with focus on failure related repair costs. In this context, the aspects of standardisation, uncertainty and discounting are carved out. Due to the fact that operators increasingly demand for cost guarantee contracts, contract design recommendations are facilitated. Finally, the...

Stefan Frisch The impact of a CEO.s task knowledge on the leader life cycles

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,0, Leipzig Graduate School of Management (Chair of Strategic Management and Organization), language: English, abstract: Guided by the advancements of research on organizational learning, this thesis theoretically analyzes the impact of different dimensions of a CEO‟s task knowledge on company performance over the CEO life cycle. For this purpose, it attempts to conceptualize the previously fragmented literatures on company/industry based, experience based and personality based task knowledge into an integrated concept of task knowledge within the leader life cycle theory. As a result of this, consistent hypotheses on the positive influence of higher task knowledge and the concrete impact on the shape of the leader life cycle curve have been derived. Conclusively, the thesis might play a pioneering role within the progression from a pure demographic characteristics based methodology to direct psychological personality measures of an executive‟s cognitive base. The empirical validation deserves further attention.Keywords: Leader life cycle theory; CEO life cycle; Task knowledge; Position-specific skills

This book, on the ergonomics of human−machine systems, is aimed at engineers specializing in informatics, automation, production or robotics, who are faced with a significant dilemma during the conception of human−machine systems. On the one hand, the human operator guarantees the reliability of the system and has been known to salvage numerous critical situations through an ability to reason in unplanned, imprecise and uncertain situations; on the other hand, the human operator can be unpredictable and create disturbances in the automated system. The first part of the book is dedicated to the methods of human-centered design, from three different points of view, the various chapters focusing on models developed by human engineers and functional models to explain human behavior in their environment, models of cognitive psychology and models in the domain of automobile driving. Part 2 develops the methods of evaluation of the human−machine systems, looking at the evaluation of the activity of the human operator at work and human error analysis methods. Finally, Part 3 is dedicated to human−machine cooperation, where the authors show that a cooperative agent comprises a know-how and a so-called know-how-to-cooperate and show the way to design and evaluate that cooperation in real industrial contexts.

Gina Roberts A Literature Review on the Impact of Investment in Human Capital on Economic Success

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: Champions of Human Capital in organisations, such as Human Resources directors, are in need of empirical evidence to justify to board members, CEOs and ultimately shareholders why financial investments into Human Capital should be increased or at least maintained. The research questions posed in this thesis take on the challenge to find empirical evidence that investment in Human Capital, through Human Resources, has a positive impact on intermediate as well as accounting and share-value indicators of organisational performance. This literature review summarises, integrates and evaluates research published between 1998 and 2003 pertaining to the direct and indirect relationship between Human Resources on different indicators of intermediate and bottom-line performance. The review is comprised of 31 articles clustered into the following topics: strategic HRM, Human Resources Development, technology, diverse workforces and flexible working conditions and methodological issues in HR-organisational performance research. Evidence for the direct and indirect impact of HR on organisational performance is discussed and the findings are interpreted with reference to Ostroff and Bowen’s Multi-Level Model (2000), which explains the individual, organisational and inter-level relationships between Human Resources and organisational performance. Enabling conditions that strengthen the HR-organisational performance relationship are identified. Methodological issues s...

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Public International Law and Human Rights, grade: A, Birkbeck, University of London, language: English, abstract: This study seeks to address the issue of climate change through a human rights lens by focusing on the causes of climate change and its impacts on both the environment and human rights. It highlights the close link between capitalist industrialization and environmental degradation and explains how this consequently leads to human rights violations.This research tackles human rights approach to climate change with a special focus on international human rights instruments mainly the two international covenants, the ICCPR and the ICESCR, it seeks to understand whether they impose international obligations on states to protect human rights from the adverse effects of climate change and how those imposed duties can be enforced to effectively protect people's rights.Unfortunately, this paper will reach to the conclusion that the existing human rights law does not adequately protect human rights from the lethal threat of climate change, due to the absence of a universally recognized right to a healthy environment, moreover, despite the possibility of the extraterritorial application of the ICESCR, the political will of states to cooperate under the provisions of the covenant to face the issue of climate change seems to be also absent.

The book describes how interference can be managed so that radio systems co-exist, without harmful mutual effects, within a finite amount of spectrum. This is timely in view of the increasing proliferation of wireless systems. It covers both the processes, such as regional or international coordination, as well as the engineering principles. Written by an author with extensive experience in the industry, it describes in detail the main methodologies for calculating or computing the interference between radio systems of the same type, and also between radio systems of different types

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Operations Research, grade: Masters of Science, Wollega University (School of Economics), course: Development Economics, language: English, abstract: The topic of the research is Human Capital and Economic Growth of Ethiopia. The research answered questions such as "does human capital contribute to economic growth of Ethiopia?" with major objective to analyze the short run and long run effect of human capital on economic growth of Ethiopia over 1971 to 2013 using both ordinary least square (OLS) econometric and descriptive methods of data analysis. The data used for the research is secondary time series data collected by the National Bank of Ethiopia over the years 1971 to 2013. Nominal GDP is used as dependent and proxy variable for Economic growth while independent variables are physical capital, active labor force, terms of trade for measure of openness, government expenditure and human capital in the form of expenditure on health and education. Accordingly, the empirical finding shows that human capital in the form of education and health investment has consistent and significant long run effect on economic growth of Ethiopia at 5% level of significance. Keeping the other variables constant, 1% change (increase/decrease) in expenditure in human capital will change (increase/decrease) nominal output by 0.23%. In contrary short run human capital has consistent but insignificant effect on economic g...
