Though they reported similar rates of social mobility, African Americans in the "Black Belt" of Alabama are disproportionately poorer and employed in lower-skill jobs than whites.


Workers' Migration And Remittances In Bangladesh, Khawaja Mamun, Hiranya K. Nath 2010 Sacred Heart University

Workers' Migration And Remittances In Bangladesh, Khawaja Mamun, Hiranya K. Nath

WCOB Faculty Publications

Bangladesh has sent more than 6.7 million workers to over 140 countries during a period of more than three decades since the mid-1970s. Most of these workers temporarily migrated to work in Middle East and Southeast Asia. This mass movement of temporary migrant workers has, to some extent, eased unemployment pressures on the over-burdened labor market in this highly populated country. More importantly, the remittance transfers received from these migrant workers have reached a phenomenal level of over 10 billion US dollars in 2009, approximately 12 percent of GDP in Bangladesh. This paper analyzes the trends and various other ...

Catalyzing Employee Change With Transformative Learning, Nancy K. Franz 2010 Iowa State University

Catalyzing Employee Change With Transformative Learning, Nancy K. Franz

Nancy K. Franz

Businesses, organizations, and government agencies have invested heavily in employee training. The American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) reports these costs as 2.15% of payroll (ASTD, 2008). A large amount of this investment is directed at improving employee knowledge and skills. Although most organizations are good at this, often a need exists to develop a deeper level of behavior change in employees. This type of change can be difficult to accomplish and sustain over time. Adult education theory, in particular transformative education theory, has enhanced the ability of organizations to bring about deeper change in employees through training ...

Mountain Monitor-4th Quarter 2009, Mark Muro, Jonathan Rothwell 2010 Brookings Institution

Mountain Monitor-4th Quarter 2009, Mark Muro, Jonathan Rothwell

Mountain Monitor

The Mountain West’s recovery from the Great Recession is spreading. Output is growing in every metropolitan area. Still, hiring remains elusive—a fact frustrating the entire nation, but perhaps more so in a region used to snapping, even roaring, back from recessions faster than the rest of the nation. Drawing on data covering the fourth quarter of 2009 (ending in December), this new Mountain Monitor—a companion product to Brookings’ national MetroMonitor and a quarterly resource produced by Brookings Mountain West, a partnership between Brookings and the University of Nevada at Las Vegas—surveys a region that is at ...


Por Uma Avaliação Objectiva, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Por Uma Avaliação Objectiva, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Com base em mitos educativos muito difundidos, e cavalgando o corcel do temor reverencial dos docentes antes o educativamente correcto, têm-se instalado perspectivas muito injustas sobre o que se deve e como se deve avaliaro dito "desempenho" dos professores, designadamente do ensino superior. Este artigo, sem discutir as questões filosóficas de base de toda a avaliação, procura minimizar os danos do processo em curso propondo concretos critérios de uma avaliação que não seja a manifestação do puro arbítrio dos poderes académicos pontuais, manipulando grelhas subjectivas e complexíssimas. Pretende, pois, uma avaliação justa, pela objectividade.

This will create dangerous myths about how teachers should be evaluated, because paying no attention to the nature of their labor, and resulting on the creation of deep injustice. It is feared that such systems to be implemented result in infinite time-consuming bureaucratic. Precious time that should be used in teaching and research. That may also pollute the environment by creating lethal enemies among teaching people, ending up in lengthy legal proceedings. This article seeks to make a diagnosis of myths ...


Data Note: Vocational Rehabilitation Employment Outcomes For Transition-Age Youth With Autism And Other Disabilities, Frank A. Smith, Jaime Lugas 2010 University of Massachusetts Boston

Data Note: Vocational Rehabilitation Employment Outcomes For Transition-Age Youth With Autism And Other Disabilities, Frank A. Smith, Jaime Lugas

Data Note Series, Institute for Community Inclusion

Youth with autism, like youth from other disability subgroups, often participate in state Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) programs to obtain employment. While youth with autism represent a small percentage of all VR closures, the number with autism who closed out of VR more than tripled between 2003 and 2008 (see figure). In this Data Note, we compare employment outcomes for two subgroups of youth who exited VR in FY 2008, those with autism and those with all other disabilities.

Concierge Medicine: The Perfect Storm? Implications For Nurse Practitioners, 2010 Selected Works

Concierge Medicine: The Perfect Storm? Implications For Nurse Practitioners

Linda A. Treiber

This article addresses a recent change in the health care delivery system: the concierge medical practice, where doctors provide an array of special services by limiting practice to a small number of patients willing to pay a membership fee. The purpose of this article is to document this trend and to situate it within the health care system. Although beneficial for patients who can afford it, concierge medicine leads to increasing health care inequalities and disparities in the United States. The implications for nurse practitioners include caring for a larger and sicker population of underserved patients.

Filosofia Antropológica?, Paulo Ferreira da Cunha 2010 Universidade do Porto

Filosofia Antropológica?, Paulo Ferreira Da Cunha

Paulo Ferreira da Cunha

Muito do que se passa nas nossas sociedades, actualmente, depende de termos ou não termos um olhar filosófico, e de termos ou não termos a capacidade perspectivista do antropólogo. O presente artigo chama a atenção para a necessidade de a Filosofia, tentando furtar-se à tirania do Logos na versão dos ares "grão senhores", de que falava Kant, procure o olhar de "terceiro", e o despojamento de recursos da Antropologia cultural.
