Sea Grant International: Extending The Model Of Applied Research, Extension/Outreach To Foreign Countries, Matthew Wilburn King, Dosoo Jang, Jill Hepp, Janelle Bruce Dec 2005

Sea Grant International: Extending The Model Of Applied Research, Extension/Outreach To Foreign Countries, Matthew Wilburn King, Dosoo Jang, Jill Hepp, Janelle Bruce

Matthew Wilburn King PhD

NOAA Research’s Office of International Activities and the National Sea Grant Office are extending the Sea Grant model to other countries. The National Sea Grant College Program is a proven, effective model to engage universities and government agencies acting in partnership to promote research, education and outreach/extension related to marine issues. Through network contacts at 30 universities and research institutes and the NOAA National Sea Grant Office, individual Sea Grant programs stay connected to issues at a national level while being responsive to local level needs. Because the Sea Grant model is inherently flexible — both culturally and administratively ...

“Propuestas Universales De Redistribución Del Ingreso. Un Análisis Normativo.”, Cristian Pérez Muñoz Dec 2005

“Propuestas Universales De Redistribución Del Ingreso. Un Análisis Normativo.”, Cristian Pérez Muñoz

Cristian Pérez Muñoz

The idea of guarantying an unconditional and universal income to each member of the political community is rooted in Thomas Paine and Joseph Charlier writings, published some centuries ago. In the last decades, the debate on this topic has been renewed. Among the recent initiatives, the most spread ones have been the Universal Basic Income, mainly developed by Philippe Van Parijs, and the capital grants proposal elaborated by Bruce Ackerman and Anne Alstott. These two guaranteed income proposals present many coincidences and differences, both in the normative and factual area. This article contains a normative analysis of both proposals, mainly ...

Exchanging Development For Market Access? Deep Integration And Industrial Policy Under Multilateral And Regional-Bilateral Trade Agreements, Kenneth C. Shadlen Dec 2005

Exchanging Development For Market Access? Deep Integration And Industrial Policy Under Multilateral And Regional-Bilateral Trade Agreements, Kenneth C. Shadlen

Ken Shadlen

This paper analyzes the developmental trade-offs involved in multilateral versus regional-bilateral strategies of integration into the international economy. I contrast the regulations that guide policy in the areas of trade, investment, and intellectual property in the World Trade Organization (WTO) and in regional-bilateral agreements between the US and developing countries. Both strategies of integration feature similar trade-offs, in that developing countries gain increased market access and opportunities for specialization in exchange for diminished space for use of industrial policy instruments to create new productive capacities. However, the trade-offs are intensified in the case of regional-bilateral agreements: countries receive more market ...


Firm-Sponsored General Training, Felipe Balmaceda Assoc Prof. Dec 2005

Firm-Sponsored General Training, Felipe Balmaceda Assoc Prof.

Felipe Balmaceda

This article analyzes firm and worker’s incentives to invest in general and specific training when these are separable in the production technology and wages are determined by the outside-option principle. It is shown that firms pay for general training, while workers receive the full return on it, and firms and workers share both the costs and benefits of specific training. The case of delayed general training is also studied. When general training is delayed, it is shown that the strategic complementarity between specific and general training increases the worker’s incentives to invest in specific training.

2015 And The Rise Of China: Power Cycle Analysis And The Implications For Australia, Dylan Kissane Nov 2005

2015 And The Rise Of China: Power Cycle Analysis And The Implications For Australia, Dylan Kissane

Dylan Kissane

Research undertaken at the University of South Australia has produced a reformulated power cycle theory which balances both military and economic capabilities of actors, producing a graphical representation of the relative distribution of power. For the period between 2000 and 2030, this model suggests that China will continue to rise in power at the expense of the United States, achieving power parity in 2014 and overtaking the sole remaining superpower in 2015. This article introduces the power cycle method, extrapolates forecasts from collected sampling and suggests implications for Australia of an international environment where its principal ally is no longer ...


Curves, Conflict And Critical Points: Rethinking Power Cycle Theory For The 21st Century, Dylan Kissane Nov 2005

Curves, Conflict And Critical Points: Rethinking Power Cycle Theory For The 21st Century, Dylan Kissane

Dylan Kissane

Power cycle theory, arising primarily from the work of Charles F. Doran, determines a sovereign state’s relative share of total power within a wider system of like states. Using unweighted measures of national material capabilities across five indicators, the power cycle method allows the analyst to estimate the relative hierarchical position of each state in a defined system or set of states, the rapidity of each state’s rise and decline in relative power and to forecast the likely future for each state in the system under review. The mapped ‘curve of relative power’ for a state also allows ...


Uma História Política Da Transição Brasileira: Da Ditadura Militar À Democracia, Adriano Codato Nov 2005

Uma História Política Da Transição Brasileira: Da Ditadura Militar À Democracia, Adriano Codato

Adriano Codato

This article discusses Brazilian political history, from the military-political coup in 1964 through Fernando Henrique Cardoso´s second presidential term. Written in the form of an explanatory summary, three themes are joined in a narrative on the transition from a military dictatorship to a liberal democratic regime: the military, the political and the bureaucratic. We seek to establish causal inferences linking content, methods and the reasons for and meaning of political change beginning in 1974 with the quality of the democratic regime as it emerged during the 1990s. Our explanation is premised on the need to analyze two different but ...


The Problem Of Moral Dirigisme: A New Argument Against Moralistic Legislation, Mario Rizzo Nov 2005

The Problem Of Moral Dirigisme: A New Argument Against Moralistic Legislation, Mario Rizzo

Mario Rizzo

This Article applies a theory of rational choice to moral decisionmaking. In this theory, agents act primarily on local and personal knowledge to instantiate moral principles, virtues and moral goods. The State may seek to prevent them from acting as they independently determine by prescribing or proscribing certain conduct by formal legal means. If its purpose is to ensure that people act morally or become better persons, we call this “moral dirigisme.” Our thesis is that the need to use decentralized knowledge to determine the moral status of an act makes the task of the moral dirigiste well-neigh impossible. The ...

La Internacionalización De Los Centros Históricos, Fernando Carrión Mena Nov 2005

La Internacionalización De Los Centros Históricos, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El presente artículo busca desarrollar la idea de que los centros históricos sólo pueden entenderse en el marco de ciertas relaciones particulares, una de las cuales se define en el ámbito internacional. Y si llega a esta condición por el grado de las funciones de centralidad que tiene, Se parte de la premisa que el concepto centro es relativo, en el sentido que para ser tal debe definirse en un ámbito específico de relaciones: siempre se es centro de algo que lo contiene. En el caso que nos ocupa, el ámbito de la centralidad se define según el intensidad de ...

Setting A Publick Table: Food And Food Service At A Colonial And Early American New Jersey Tavern, Megan E. Springate Oct 2005

Setting A Publick Table: Food And Food Service At A Colonial And Early American New Jersey Tavern, Megan E. Springate

Megan E. Springate

The Blue Ball, a tavern located in Shrewsbury, New Jersey served primarily a local clientele from 1754 through 1814. Excavations on the site of the still-standing structure have revealed a wealth of information regarding the preparation and service of food from the late Colonial through the Early American period. Using documentary and archaeological evidence, this paper will explore the menu and the table settings found at The Blue Ball. The Blue Ball, open to the public as The Allen House, a colonial tavern interpretation, is owned by the Monmouth County Historical Association.

Retuning The Harmonization Of Eu Asylum Law: Exploring The Need For An Eu Asylum Appellate Court, Ariel Meyerstein Oct 2005

Retuning The Harmonization Of Eu Asylum Law: Exploring The Need For An Eu Asylum Appellate Court, Ariel Meyerstein

Ariel Meyerstein, JD, PhD

This Comment takes as its starting point the adoption of the first five pieces of harmonized legislation created as part of the EU’s asylum regime overhaul of the early 2000s and proposes constructive solutions to compensate for the inadequate results of the May 2004 negotiations in Brussels. Specifically, it is proposed that an EU-wide asylum appellate court could assist the Member States in completing the work they started by creating a comprehensive harmonization consistent with international law.


A Parallel Reality Construction Of War Among Joloano Muslim Survivors In Sulu, Philippines, Frede G. Moreno, Lea U. Laput Oct 2005

A Parallel Reality Construction Of War Among Joloano Muslim Survivors In Sulu, Philippines, Frede G. Moreno, Lea U. Laput

Frede G Moreno

The Mindanao conflict in Southern Philippines is a long-standing controversy that has eluded comprehensive solutions. Despite efforts of the Government of the Philippines (GRP) and the representatives from the peoples of Mindanao in undertaking peace initiatives, “the war:” continues. The establishment of the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) as embodied in an organic law provided in the 1986 Philippine Constitution has not seemed to bring about the much-anticipated progress. Even with the so-called “autonomy” already in place to substantiate the clamor of the Muslims for self-rule in the Tripoli Agreement, conflict has escalated signifying unrest among the people. Instead ...

Unraveling Of Dynamic Sorting, Ettore Domiano, Hao Li, Wing Suen Oct 2005

Unraveling Of Dynamic Sorting, Ettore Domiano, Hao Li, Wing Suen

hao li

We consider a two-sided, finite-horizon model of search and matching with heterogeneous types and complementarity between types. The quality of the pool of potential matches deteriorates as agents who have found mutually agreeable matches exit the market. With automatic participation of all agents in each round, the market performs a sorting function in that attractive types of agents have multiple chances to meet and match with their peers. However, the sorting function of the market is lost if agents incur an arbitrarily small cost in order to participate in each round. The market unravels as almost all agents rush to ...


Heat And Mass Transfer During Baking : Product Quality Aspects, H Hadiyanto Et Al Sep 2005

Heat And Mass Transfer During Baking : Product Quality Aspects, H Hadiyanto Et Al

Hadiyanto

Most food product qualities are developed during heating processes. Therefore the internal heating and mass transfer of water are important aspects in food processing. Heating of food products is mostly induced by convection heating. However, the number applications of convective heating in combination with microwave heating are growing. Convection heating only promotes heating on the surface while microwave induce internal heating. This paper focuses on effect of convection heating sources to changes of quality properties in bakery products such as brownness and texture. Heat convection and conduction, and moisture migration due to diffusion and convection are the key to changes ...
