  • I love to fix people! I draw genuine pleasure in helping others achieve success and fulfill their dreams. I have committed many years of my life to studying the path to success, and have trained, coached, and mentored thousands of people. Early on, I learned that persuasion is one of the most important skills to develop if you truly want to be in control and achieve all you can in life. After learning this profound lesson, I decided to dedicate my life even more specifically to the study of persuasion and influence because I knew it was the only way I would realize my...

  • his monograph presents methods for full comparative distributional analysis based on the relative distribution. This provides a general integrated framework for analysis, a graphical component that simplifies exploratory data analysis and display, a statistically valid basis for the development of hypothesis-driven summary measures, and the potential for decomposition - enabling the examination of complex hypotheses regarding the origins of distributional changes within and between groups.

  • The third model is constructed by CIBC, following their usual data mining procedure for a direct marketing campaign. The modeller at CIBC trained the model, and then passed on to us the validation result. The supervised learning algorithm of their choice is linear logistic regression. A considerable amount of time is spent on data preparation, including variable selection, variable transformation, and variable imputation. The first step in their modelling procedure is to significantly reduce the number of input variables by performing exploratory analysis on the data.

  • As countries develop, many transactions that once would have occurred in the shadow economy move to formal establishments, Önanced by formal banking. A little-observed fact is that this transition does not necessarily bring the formalization of income. In particular, in countries with generous social services, an environment of semiformality can emerge, in which individuals remain registered taxpayers, to receive public beneÖts, but do not declare all of their income to tax authorities.

  • Changes in the use of land reflect a variety of environmental and social factors, necessitating an equally varied suite of data to be used for effective analysis. While remote sensing, both from satellites and air photos, provides a central resource for study, socio-economic surveys, censuses, and map sources also supply a wealth of valid information. Land Use Change: Science, Policy and Management presents spacial theories and methodologies that support an integrated approach to the analysis of land use change.

  • In November 2009, EIF issued a working paper on the European microfinance market. In this study, we found that there are wide spectra of final beneficiaries and intermediaries and concluded that there is no common microfinance business model in Europe. While our findings suggested that the microfinance market is immature and fragmented, they also pointed to its growing importance as a market segment with a potential to counter poverty and unemployment while fostering financial and social inclusion.

  • I can still remember the day I realized marketing had changed forever. It was summer of 2004. I was reading an article about Kryptonite, a manufacturer of bicycle locks. Kryptonite had found itself in uncharted territory after a series of forum posts and an online video revealed how the brand’s tubular bike locks could be opened with a simple BIC pen. At first, the company denied the claim’s validity. But as word (and ire) spread like wildfire across the Internet’s budding social sphere, Kryptonite soon realized it had to change its way of thinking. In a bold move, its leaders...

  • Social determinants of health have a strong influence on a wide diversity of health endpoints. The same is valid for the field of environmental health, as the exposure to environmental risk factors is also unequally distributed, and this unequal distribution is often related to social characteristics such as income, social status, employment and education, but also non-economic aspects such as gender, age or ethnicity. However, depending on the environmental risk and the “risk group” considered, the magnitude of inequality varies largely.

  • This article discusses how the flux of cultural productions between centre and periphery works, taking as an example the field of music production in France and Brazil in the 1920s. The life trajectories of Jean Cocteau, French poet and painter, and Heitor Villa-Lobos, a Brazilian composer, are taken as the main reference points for the discussion.

  • It was Bertha Pappenheim — the famous “Anna O.” of Josef Breuer’s first experiments with psychoanalysis, and a pioneer social worker in her own right — who first named psychotherapy “the talking cure.” And so it is, as a legion of well-controlled studies documents. Across a surprising variety of psychotherapeutic approaches, verbal exchanges between client and therapist can be powerfully curative — except when they aren’t.

  • The definition of gender roles is so central in Afghan society and culture, that any perceived or planned changes require consultations not only with the household but also with the larger community. Men and women to a large extent share the same cultural ethos and values, including their conception of gender roles, and they seek to validate these within their communities. Years of turmoil have furthermore left communities to their own devices, strengthening the inherent distrust of external authorities and increased reliance upon conservative values.

  • The structure of the survey reflects Rosenberg’s (1968) notion that social research is an exploration of the relationships between a population’s social properties (Survey Part A), dispositions (Survey Part B) and intended actions (Survey Part C). The survey was trialed by staff members from Chifley Business School who had previously completed units in the MBA program and were able to provide informed comments. Their feedback was used to refine the survey and improve its reliability and validity.

  • However the fact that the nations with most effi cient corpo- rations are generally the societies with highest utility does not prove that effi cient corporations are the cause. Other factors such as better education systems, infrastructure, social change and technological change might all be identifi ed as possible causes of economic growth. Effi cient corporations might be a product of economic growth in a nation, rather than the cause. At the level of individual fi rms it is more diffi cult to validate the economic effi ciency argument. It would be necessary to...

  • Designation as National Statistics should not be interpreted to mean that the statistics are always correct. For example, whilst the Code requires statistics to be produced to a level of accuracy that meets users’ needs, it also recognises that errors can occur – in which case it requires them to be corrected and publicised. Assessment reports will not normally comment further on a set of statistics, for example on their validity as social or economic measures. However, reports may point to such questions if the Authority believes that further research would be desirable. ...

  • 1 Efficient natural language generation has been successfully demonstrated using highly compiled knowledge about speech acts and their related social actions. A design and prototype implementation of a parser which utilizes this same pragmatic knowledge to efficiently guide parsing is presented. Such guidance is shown to prune the search space and thus avoid needless processing of pragmatically unlikely constituent structures.

  • It is very interesting as a social observer to track the development of computer scientists involved in AI and natural language-related research in theoretical issues of mutual concern to computer science and the social study of language use. The necessity of writing programs that demonstrate the validity or invalidity of conceptualizations and assumptions has caused computer scientists to cover a lot of theoretical ground in a very short time, or at least to arrive at a problem area, and to see the problem fairly clearly, that is very contemporary in social theory. ...
