Resiliency enhancement : a comparison of after school child care programs for selected elementary school students by James F Martin( )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to determine whether at-risk elementary school students enrolled in an after-school program offering resiliency training would be positively affected both academically and behaviorally. Survey results and literature reviews indicate that the issue of at-risk, neglected, or abused students is the number one issue facing society and has moved it to the forefront of educational prominence. Although there is a substantial amount of literature on the subject, most is not research based and is focused only on the pathology or risk factors with which children have to cope, rather than on controlled, evaluative studies that could assess success or failure of specific strategies or programs. The researcher evaluated students from two Florida elementary schools identified by the Florida Department of Education as "critically low performing schools." The students in the population were identified as critically low academic achievers and/or those demonstrating aggressive behaviors. The key characteristics of students targeted were academic performance and behavior in school. The schools identified in the study, in addition to having low academic achievement and a high level of behavior problems, also had demographic issues that contributed to the needs of the school population. The researcher targeted appropriate activities and behaviors necessary to evaluate the programs within each of the schools selected. Although results of the statistical treatment failed to reveal significant differences among the hypotheses tested, resiliency enhancement is still a viable means by which academic or behavioral gains can be made with students. The researcher suggests that additional evaluative activities be incorporated into future studies. It is recommended that further analysis to determine the specifies of problems facing individual schools be more qualitative. It is also suggested that increasing the sample size to increase the power of the analysis will rule out the inconclusiveness of the analysis. Previous research indicates that although students may make academic or behavioral gains, they may still be far from the absolute levels of performance that are recognized as being significant. This research has also established that the imperative for growth and development exists and develops naturally in the presence of certain environmental attributes. Other conclusions and recommendations for further study were offered

Improving the layout of a warehouse at the Coast Guard Aircraft Repair and Supply Center by James F Martin( )

in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We present a heuristic algorithm to evaluate alternative item and storage device locations in the Coast Guard's Aircraft Repair and Supply Center (ARSC) warehouse. The goal is to minimize the labor cost of item pickers by locating items in a way that reduces travel. The heuristic assigns items with the highest usage to the storage locations nearest the input/output point and evaluates alternative plans for relocating a limited number of storage devices by pairwise-interchange. We judge the quality of our results by comparing them to ARSC's current item locations and storage device layout. We also develop an iterative linear programming (LP) based algorithm that provides a lower bound on cost for comparison with the heuristic's results. Although implementing the iterative LP solution requires capital outlays beyond current budgets of the ABS C, the solution provides insight into layout and labor cost tradeoffs for long term planning. Our results show that expected travel distances and labor costs can be reduced by 40.2% by reassigning items to locations within ARSC's current configuration of storage devices. By interchanging only 7 of 51 storage devices ARSC could gain an additional 5.6% improvement for a total 45.8% reduction. Our iterative linear programming solution establishes a lower bound of 53.7% reduction over ARSC's current layout

Readiness and Retention: Effects of Downsizing and Increased Operations Tempo( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The end of the Cold War brought about significant changes to the world and the U.S. military. The large containment force structure was no longer needed. The lack of a perceived threat and pressure to reduce defense spending created a period of downsizing. Since 1989 the U.S. Air Force has reduced its force by one-third and experienced 12 years of reduced defense spending. The pressure to downsize and the increased OPTEMPO have caused significant problems in readiness and retention. Increased demand on aircraft is creating maintenance shortfalls, thereby reducing the Air Force's ability to divert funds for modernization efforts. Air Force members are working harder than ever. Military operations other than war (MOOTW) have increased fourfold since the end of the Cold War. In a period where up to 27 percent of the force is deployed, they perceive that pay, retirement, and quality of life issues are on the decline. For all of these reasons, readiness and retention levels are at the lowest level in decades. Many predict the problems cannot be solved in the near future. This paper discusses or evaluates current pay and retirement reform initiatives contained in the FY 2000 Defense Budget that will help to reverse this negative spiral. It also examines the efforts to stabilize OPTEMPO. These initiatives will get the attention of those making re-enlistment decisions now, but the long-term fix is vested in leadership. These initiatives if implemented will make service members feel their efforts are being properly compensated and will help to restore the confidence and trust that makes up the foundation of military service
