The Northern IRA and the early years of partition, 1920-1922 by Robert John Lynch( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The years 1920-22 constituted a period of unprecedented conflict and political change in Ireland. It began with the onset of the most brutal phase of the War of Independence and culminated in the effective military defeat of the Republican IRA in the Civil War. Occurring alongside these dramatic changes in the south and west of Ireland was a far more fundamental conflict in the north-east, a period of brutal sectarian violence which marked the early years of partition and the establishment of Northern Ireland. Almost uniquely the IRA in the six counties were involved in every one of these conflicts and yet, it can be argued, was on the fringe of all of them. The period 1920-22 saw the evolution of the organisation from peripheral curiosity during the War of independence to an idealistic symbol for those wishing to resolve the fundamental divisions within the Sinn Fein movement which developed in the first six months of 1922. The story of the Northern IRA's collapse in the autumn of that year demonstrated dramatically the true nature of the organisation and how it was their relationship to the various protagonists in these conflicts, rather than their unceasing but fruitless war against partition, that defined its contribution to the Irish revolution. -- Publisher description
Community college involvement in contract training and other economic development activities : report of a national survey conducted by the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges and the National Center for Research in Vocational Education by Robert John Lynch( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1989-90, a national survey was conducted to assess the scope and nature of contract training and other economic development activities at community colleges and technical institutes. The survey was sent to a random sample of 246 community colleges, requesting information on the colleges' workforce and economic development activities in 1988-89. Major findings, based on a 72% response rate, included the following: (1) the majority (94%) of the public community colleges in the sample offered at least one course on a contract basis to public or private employers; (2) most colleges had relatively modest contract education programs, with the number of courses offered at the median college only 50, the median number of students enrolled 919, and the median number of employer clients served 24; (3) frequently offered contract courses dealt with job-specific skills, basic reading, writing, and math skills, and "other" miscellaneous courses; (4) on average, private firms comprised approximately 70% of the employer clients served by community college contract education programs; (5) on average, 61% of job-specific courses offered were developed jointly by colleges and their clients; (6) employers themselves provided the largest share of revenues needed to support contract education, followed by subsidies from state and local governments; and (7) approximately 80% of the public community, technical, and junior colleges received funds through the Vocational Education Act; approximately 50% received Job Training Partnership Act funds; and approximately 50% received funds from other state, local, and federal agencies that support business assistance programs or vocational training. Data tables and the survey instrument are included. (Jmc)

Bayesian classification using noninformative Dirichlet Priors by Robert John Lynch( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this dissertation, the Combined Bayes Test (CBT) and its average probability of error, P(s), are developed. The CBT combines training and test data to infer symbol probabilities where a Dirichlet (completely noninformative) prior is assumed for all classes. Using P(s), several results are shown based on the best quantization complexity, M(̂which is related to the Hughes Phenomenon). For example, it is shown that M ̂increases with the training and test data. Also, it is demonstrated that the OST outperforms a more conventional Maximum Likelihood (ML) based test, and the Kolmogorov-Smimov Test (KST). With this, the Bayesian Data Reduction Algorithm (BDRA) is developed. The BDRA uses P(s) (conditioned on the training data) and a greedy approach for reducing irrelevant features from each class, and its performance is shown to be superior to that of a neural network From here, the CBT is extended to demonstrate performance when the training data of each class are mislabeled. Performance is shown to degrade when mislabeling exists in the training data, being dependent on the mislabeling probabilities. However, it is also shown that the BRDA can be used to diminish the effect of mislabeling. Further, the BDRA is modified, using two different approaches, to classify test observations when the training data of each class contain missing feature values. In the first approach, each missing feature is assumed to be uniformly distributed over its range of values; in the second approach, the number of discrete levels for each feature is increased by one. Both methods of modeling missing features are shown to perform similarly, and both also outperform a neural network

Guidebook In-Camp Education for Migrant Farmworkers by Robert John Lynch( Book )

3 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An In-Camp Learning Program focuses on the specific needs of the out-of-school youth and adult migrant farmworker. Although its primary intent is that of education, the program addresses other areas such as health and social services. In 1976, New York's In-Camp Learning Program served 400 migrant farmworkers in 15 camps in the counties of Livingston, Northern Steuben, and Wyoming. These workers included mainly Southern black migrants as well as Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, and whites. The program's major goal was to help these farmworkers master those tools of communication, thinking and self-direction that best help them make those decisions critical to their daily and future lives. This guidebook presents general guidelines for developing an In-Camp Learning Program; outlines the 1976 In-Camp Learning Program's basic educational needs, objectives, learning experiences, and evaluative procedures; summarizes the activities conducted at the various camps; discusses five teaching strategies used by the in-camp teachers and tutors, giving a sample lesson plan for each; and briefly describes various supportive services and programs. Appendices include a listing of the labor camps in New York, guidelines for personal conduct in working in the camps, listing of audiovisual equipment for in-camp use, a basic math inventory, program policies and procedures, a listing of the College Assistance Migrant Programs and the High School Equivalency Programs in the U.S., and copies of various forms used in the program.

An Application of Bayesian Cost Benefit Analysis in Analyzing Graduate School Admissions Policy by William L Duff( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to identify the optimal graduate school admission policy for a medium size state university. The techniques used were Bayesian and cost-benefit decision analysis. Standardized test results, personal interviews with university administrators, and performance of graduate students provide the data necessary for specifying the decision model. The results indicate that graduate admission requirements do not appear to conform to conventional rules of rationality. Moreover, the study indicates that Bayesian/cost-benefit analysis can make a significant contribution to academic policy questions of this type. (Author)
