Local politics and development in the Middle East by Louis J Cantori( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although development at the local level is a primary goal of most assistance schemes, most development agencies and banks know little of politics at the local level in developing countries. As a result, assistance programs generally lack relevance to indigenous populations and are--at the community level--viewed as being controlled from the "outside." The authors of this book concentrate on how local politics influence development in the Middle East, with the intent of encouraging more appropriate--and thus more effective--assistance programs. They discuss general policy issues and the nature of center-periphery relations in Middle East countries and delve into specific problems encountered in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Turkey, Tunisia, and North Yemen, showing how information about local political schemes can aid administrators of development programs in providing assistance that is acceptable--and accepted--at the local level. The case studies provide a broad base for planning, encompassing capitalist, state capitalist, and socialist systems in both rural and urban settings
Seeing science : how photography reveals the universe by Marvin Heiferman( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seeing Science' offers an insightful and reader-friendly collection of essays and pictures about photography's role in visualizing science and building human knowledge from micro to macro levels and everything in between. Photography and science have long been intertwined, helping to shape the way we look at the world. Scientists use photography as a way to gather information, explore, and learn, but just as important, photography is also used to promote scientific advances and has long served as an interface between the sciences and the public. Science is less an edifice of facts than a process of discovery and inquiry. In this way, it is not dissimilar to art; artists have engaged with some of the same scientific principles, using photography to imagine the world differently and present us with new experiences and ways of seeing. This volume presents both perspectives, exploring how science is made perceptible, featuring over three hundred images and sixty short texts

Effects of inconsistent information on text processing : evidence for comprehension monitoring by Linda Baker( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Expository passages containing either main point inconsistencies, detail inconsistencies, or no inconsistencies were presented sentence by sentence to 90 college students. Subjects read through the passages at their own pace and were encouraged to reread sections of text whenever they wished. As expected, subjects spent more time on sentences containing information that conflicted with information presented elsewhere, and they looked back more often at inconsistent sentences. These modifications in processing indicated that the subjects monitored their comprehension as they were reading, actively evaluating whether the ideas expressed in the text were consistent with one another. Several postreading measures provided additional support for this conclusion. The relationship between reading behavior and subsequent identification of the inconsistencies was also examined. Large individual differences were found both in processing strategies and in confusion detection. (Author)
Children's effective use of multiple standards for evaluating their comprehension by Linda Baker( Book )

4 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two experiments examined children's ability to apply three different standards for evaluating their understanding. Five-, seven-, nine-, and eleven-year-old children were presented with short narrative passages within which were embedded three types of problems (nonsense words, internal inconsistencies, and prior knowledge violations), each of which could only be identified if a specific standard of evaluation were used (lexical, internal consistency, and external consistency, respectively). Since the focus of the study was on the effectiveness with which children could apply the standards, rather than on the likelihood that they would spontaneously adopt and then apply them, the subjects were explicitly instructed in advance that their task was to find the "mistakes." Moreover, the subjects were given immediate feedback after each trial and a second opportunity to find any missed problems. Although older children used all three standards more effectively than younger children, overall problem identification was considerably better than that reported in non-instructed settings. The internal consistency standard was applied least effectively, but even the youngest children were able to use it. The results illustrate the need to consider comprehension monitoring skills with respect to specific standards of evaluation, rather than as a unitary phenomenon. (Author)

Supply chain models and channel strategies for distributing tangible and intangible products with the Internet-enabled market by Yunfang Feng( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Internet has opened new channels for market competition, meanwhile posing new challenges to many traditional supply chain management insights. Many new business initiatives have emerged to take full advantage of the Internet channel to complement or substitute the traditional channel for business. For example, drop-shipping is an arrangement whereby an e-tailer accepts orders for products, and then pays a manufacturer or distributor to ship the product to the customer. One distinguishing feature of the drop-shipping channel is that the e-tailer does not hold any inventory. Compared to the traditional channel, the customers' online shopping penetration has effects on the performance of the drop-shipping channel. Our study focuses on the strategic differences between the two channels and identifies conditions under which the drop-shipping channel outperforms the traditional channel. As a comparison, we also study the centralized channel performance of each channel. Our analysis provides some insights as to when the Internet channel could be an effective substitute or complement to the traditional channel of supply chain management
