WHO’S INFLUENCING WHOM? A STUDY OF THE INFLUENCE OF THE CEO AND THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS ON ORGANIZATIONAL STRATEGY The more importance that parents attach to school effectiveness, the more likely we
are to observe equilibria in which wealthy students attend more effective schools than do
lower-income students. Moreover, if parental concern for peer group is not too large, the
model predicts that this equilibrium effectiveness sorting will tend to be more complete in
high-choice markets, those with many small school districts, than in markets with more
On January 2, 1997, I showed up for my first day of work as the Executive Director of the Oregon League of Conservation Voters (Oregon LCV). The Board shouldn’t have hired me. I was only 30. I had zero fundraising experience, virtually no personnel supervision experience, and had only been involved previously with one other nonprofit organization. A few weeks into the job, I had the good fortune of attending a four-day boot camp designed for nonprofit Executive Directors. The boot camp was very valuable – almost a lifesaver as I struggled to learn new skills. ...
This project was initiated in response to a letter from Charles Kean,
an Associate Professor of Physiology and Pharmacology and
Director of the Animal Care Facility at Loma Linda University, to
the National Research Council’s (NRC’s) Institute for Laboratory Animal
Research (ILAR), the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of
Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC) International, and the Office of
Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) of the National Institutes of Health
(NIH) outlining the research animal care community’s concerns about the
safe and humane transportation of research animal...
At the request of the National Science Foundation Engineering Directorate, the National
Academies performed an international benchmarking exercise to determine the standing of the
U.S. research enterprise in the field of mechanical engineering relative to its international peers.
This of course was no trivial undertaking, even for the panel of mechanical engineers
assembled—11 members, mostly from U.S.
development, and analysis programs. The Board is charged to review the work only of ARL’s six directorates—and this excludes review of two key elements of the ARL organization that manage and support basic research: the Army Research Office and the Collaborative Technology Alliances. The advice provided focuses on technical rather than programmatic considerations. The Board is assisted by six standing National Research Council (NRC) panels, each of which focuses on a portion of the ARL program conducted by one of...

In a market economy, companies must always specify that the effective use of capital is a core element for survival and development. If good done the effective use of capital then the company will win the competition and get the desired business results.
Promoting equity and active citizenship: IPTS research results indicate that social media
approaches to learning can mitigate existing inequalities and can be employed to successfully
re-engage individuals who are at risk of exclusion from the knowledge society. Learning 2.0
strategies can effectively increase the accessibility and availability of learning opportunities
for the hard to reach, and can significantly improve motivation and engagement in learning.

Singapore carries out some of the most advanced and innovative water research
across the whole water cycle. Leveraging on technologies and best management
practices, Singapore is actively pursuing new technologies and processes to ensure
security of supply to meet the ever-growing demands of its population and industry.
This effort is spearheaded by PUB Singapore—the national water agency—and
the Environment & Water Industry Programme Office established in May 2006
by the National Research Foundation.
Among their many provisions, the new law and the stock market rules
together require that the board of a publicly traded company be composed
of a majority of independent directors and that the board’s audit committee
consist entirely of independent directors and have at least one member with
financial expertise. They also impose restrictions on the types of services
that outside auditors can provide to their audit clients.
These wide-ranging legislative and regulatory changes were adopted in
response to the widespread outcry that followed these scandals.

The board’s governance responsibilities include approving strategy
and the strategic plan.
The Dawn of Civilisation Gaston Camille Charles Maspero, born on June 23, 1846, in Paris, is one of the most renowned of European experts in philology and Egyptology, having in great part studied his special subjects on Oriental ground. After occupying for several years the Chair of Egyptology in the École des Hautes Études at the Sorbonne in Paris, he became, in 1874, Professor of Egyptian Philology and Archæology at the Collège de France. From 1881 to 1886 he acted in Egypt as director of the Boulak Museum. It was under his superintendence that this museum became enriched with...
Institutions and individuals involved in human subjects research may establish financial
relationships related to or separate from particular research projects. Those financial
relationships may create financial interests of monetary value, such as payments for services,
equity interests, or intellectual property rights. A financial interest related to a research study
may be a conflicting financial interest. The Department recognizes that some conflicting
financial interests in research may affect the rights and welfare of human subjects.

Materials Measurement Science Division. The primary objective is to collaborate or conduct
research consistent with division programs in support of measurement science, measurement
standards, and measurement technology required to enable world-leading characterization of
materials in support of the nation’s needs for the determination of the composition, structure, and
properties of materials. The division develops state-of-the-art instrumentation, methods, models and
software to accurately and precisely measure materials over a range of length and time scales.
