Ciudad, Memoria Y Proyecto, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Lo urbano entendido como una forma específica de organización socio-territorial, adquiere en la sociedad contemporánea una especial relevancia en tanto, a inicios del presente siglo, más de la mitad de la población mundial habita en las ciudades. Por su parte, las tendencias en las que actualmente se enmarca el proceso urbano, en donde las lógicas de la globalización condicionadas, entre otros factores, por la consolidación de una nueva fase de acumulación territorial del capital, de una realidad mediatizada a través de cada vez más sofisticadas tecnologías de la comunicación, y de un paradigma cultural de impronta posmoderna estructurado alrededor de ...

Lester G Telser

For more than 80 years government outlays at all levels in the U.S. are an increasing fraction of measured GDP. No problem than this is more deserving of close scrutiny by economists.

Information, Direct Access To Farmers, And Rural Market Performance In Central India, Aparajita Goyal 2010 World Bank

Information, Direct Access To Farmers, And Rural Market Performance In Central India, Aparajita Goyal

Aparajita Goyal

This paper estimates the impact of a change in procurement strategy of a private buyer in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. Beginning in October 2000, Internet kiosks and warehouses were established that provide wholesale price information and an alternative marketing channel to soy farmers in the state. Using a new market-level dataset, the estimates suggest a significant increase in soy price after the introduction of kiosks, supporting the predictions of the theoretical model. Moreover, there is a robust increase in area under soy cultivation. The results point toward an improvement in the functioning of rural agricultural markets. (JEL ...

If A Pure Market Economy Is So Good, Why Doesn’T It Exist? The Importance Of Changing Preferences Versus Incentives In Social Change, JEFFREY ROGERS HUMMEL, Edward P. Stringham 2010 San Jose State University

If A Pure Market Economy Is So Good, Why Doesn’T It Exist? The Importance Of Changing Preferences Versus Incentives In Social Change, Jeffrey Rogers Hummel, Edward P. Stringham

Faculty Publications

Many economists argue that a pure market economy cannot come about because people will always have incentives to use coercion (Cowen and Sutter, 2005; Holcombe, 2004). We maintain that these economists leave out an important factor in social change. Change can come about by altering incentives or preferences, but since most neoclassical economists ignore changing preferences, they too quickly conclude that change is impossible. History shows that social change based on changes in preferences is common. By recognizing that preferences need not be constant, political economists can say much more about changing the world.


Family History Of Alcohol Abuse Associated With Problematic Drinking Among College Students, Joseph W. LaBrie, Savannah Migliuri, Shannon R. Kenney, Andrew Lac 2010 Loyola Marymount University

Family History Of Alcohol Abuse Associated With Problematic Drinking Among College Students, Joseph W. Labrie, Savannah Migliuri, Shannon R. Kenney, Andrew Lac

Heads Up!

Studies examining family history of alcohol abuse among college students are not only conflicting, but have suffered various limitations. The current report investigates family history of alcohol abuse (FH+) and its relationship with alcohol expectancies, consumption, and consequences. In the current study, 3753 student participants (35% FH+), completed online assessments. Compared to FH−same-sex peers, FH+ males and FH+ females endorsed greater overall positive expectancies, consumed more drinks per week, and experienced more alcohol-related negative consequences. Further, FH+ females evaluated the negative effects of alcohol to be substantially worse than FH− females. An ANCOVA, controlling for age, GPA, race, and ...

A Journey To Self, Theresa Thewes

Creative Studies Graduate Student Master's Projects

The initial intent of this project was to define a future direction by focusing on intuitive problem solving and work with a life coach. The plan exploited a tactile preference with work in fiber, glass and paint. In order to enhance skills of reflection, the plan included lessons in yoga and participation in the Expert2Expert conference and the Creative Problem Solving Institute conference. Key learnings of the project included clarification of a strong preference to embrace the present and a willingness to allow the future to unfurl. It became obvious that I also have a clear preference for tactile, creative ...

Encouraging Student Wellness: An Expanded Role For Counselor Educators, Thomas Foster 2010 Western Connecticut State University

Encouraging Student Wellness: An Expanded Role For Counselor Educators, Thomas Foster

The Journal of Counselor Preparation and Supervision

Graduate school can present as a time of both self-fulfillment and stress for students; students who lack psychosocial resources and must fulfill other life roles (e.g. employee, spouse, caregiver) during graduate school can experience significant stress levels that can interfere with their academic and personal life. However, students can make healthy choices about how to live, and over time, these choices can develop into a wellness lifestyle. The Wellness Cube Model (WCM) serves as an academic intervention with the purposes to: (a) infuse wellness content and experiences into a counseling program, (b) expose students to wellness, and (c) help ...

Race Obsession-Avoidance Paradox: A Model For Multicultural Training In Counselor Education, Rebecca A. Willow 2010 Western Connecticut State University

Race Obsession-Avoidance Paradox: A Model For Multicultural Training In Counselor Education, Rebecca A. Willow

The Journal of Counselor Preparation and Supervision

The ability to discuss race-related issues is critical to multicultural competence. Counselor educators who address race-related issues in the classroom cite student resistance as a challenge to competency development. The Race Obsession-Avoidance Paradox (ROAParadox) identifies juxtaposed obsession and avoidance about race as a cultural phenomenon. The ROAParadox model was applied in a multicultural counseling course as a strategy for educating counseling students. Teaching scenarios illustrate the use of this model as a strategy to facilitate discussions on race relations and racism. Student responses and implications for teaching applications are provided along with recommendations for future research.

Perceptions Of Counseling Integration: A Survey Of Counselor Educators, Andre Marquis, Deborah Hudson, Mike Tursi

The Journal of Counselor Preparation and Supervision

Counselor educators were surveyed in order to assess their knowledge of integrative counseling approaches, their views regarding the importance of such approaches, and how much emphasis on integrative counseling is given in their counseling courses. A large majority of participants reported that integration in counseling is very important and that they emphasize it in their teaching of counseling theories and/or methods courses. Implications of these findings are discussed, including suggestions for counselor educators and counseling journals.
