Through 25 chapters authored by some of the leading researchers in the field, Human Resources Development Review 2008 provides an extensive overview of the contextual factors driving human resources development in South Africa. A key theme throughout the volume is the importance of a multi-faceted skills development strategy operating at three levels.
According to Rubinow, the “one receptor-one action” model of hormone action has been overturned by the robust
evidence for action of steroid hormones through both nuclear and membrane receptors, and by the mounting evidence for
the role of co-regulators in modulation of hormone action. Rubinow argued that the same hormone may simultaneously
exert opposite effects on the same system (e.g., cell survival), and these effects can change with time. More research in
this area is needed to understand why women respond differently to the same hormonal stimuli.
This edition of theHandbook of Counseling Psychologylik,e all three prior editions, has three primary
objectives: (1) to provide a scholarly review of important areas of counseling psychology inquiry, (2) to
elaborate directions for future research, and (3) to draw specific suggestions for practice that derive from
the scholarly literature in counseling psychology and related disciplines.
The first of these contextual factors, the three meta-narratives, show a degree of systematic
macro-scale variation across Europe, and can therefore be described within the framework of
the EDORA typologies. The second (assets and capacity) varies in a more unsystematic way
across Europe. Its impact can therefore only be adequately assessed through some form of
local or regional audit, as part of a neo-endogenous process for specifying intervention
“mixes” at a region level.
This paper shows the fallacy of this claim. It addresses the problem. It identifies and describes a number of object characteristics beyond shape (section I) and contextual factors ( s e c t i o n 2) which bear on these processes. Drawing on these d e s c r i p t i o n s , the t h i r d section proposes core meanings for two categories of . The l a s t section outlines the main d i r e c t i o n s of Inquiry suggested by the examples and...
The detection of prosodic characteristics is an important aspect of both speech synthesis and speech recognition. Correct placement of pitch accents aids in more natural sounding speech, while automatic detection of accents can contribute to better wordlevel recognition and better textual understanding. In this paper we investigate probabilistic, contextual, and phonological factors that inﬂuence pitch accent placement in natural, conversational speech in a sequence labeling setting.
A growing body of international data shows strong contextual effects for material factors, for example
people at the same level of income will have lower mortality if they are in more, rather than less,
equal states (Wilkinson and Pickett 2007a). One explanation for this and for the strong social gradient
in health is that relative deprivation is a catalyst for a range of negative emotional and cognitive
responses to inequity.
