1. I feel as if the over-arching goal of education policy makers in developed nations is to maintain economic prosperity in the face of globalization and emerging countries, and to do so at an inexpensive cost. In addition to this, I feel like another goal would be to provide education for everyone. Having this equal opportunity gives citizens the education that is required to succeed and give back to the economy for years to come.
2. In developing nations, the goals of education policy essentially fall under the umbrella of “social stability’. This includes building a national culture that leans towards a democratic ethos, as opposed to hyper-nationalism of authoritarianism. They would also like to enhance their economic development by raising their current low value production, to high value. They’d also like to increase human capital and overall health by lowering infant mortality rates, fertility rates, and by slowing population growth. Lastly, they wish to resolve societal tensions and improve social outcomes, in general. This differs from already developed nations because they are trying to build prosperity and infrastructure after years of being an under-developed country. They’re essentially trying to make a “come back” when already developed nations are established, and primarily concerned with maintaining prosperity and infrastructure.
3. Neoliberalism is the philosophy that advocates support for economic liberalizations, free trade, and enhances the role of modern society’s private sector. The hope is that the potential savings from these reforms can fund educational expansion. There is a large assumption that the current education system is failing, and simply pouring money into the program isn’t going to cut it. There has to be something done! The Neoliberalism approach focuses on the educational future- doing away with previous ways and learning about…...

So, the major concern of researcher is energy efficiency in wireless sensor networks. WSNs acknowledged magnificent consideration from both industry and academic because of assure numerous latent applications in military and civilian areas. WSN consists of sensor nodes sensing the data, communication capabilities and data processing. Network can be deployed in the area of interest and collaborate to complete a task. WSN has multiple exclusive characteristics, such as memory constraints, computation, stern power, asymmetric data transmission, higher unreliability of sensor nodes and denser node deployment and presents several new challenges for the ultimate application and development of WSNs. In exacting, sensor nodes are operates without attendance and battery powered for a long period of time. In order to recharge or change these batteries of sensor nodes are quite difficult or impossible in most of the cases.

...Summary This report summarizes a plan to conduct a wireless site survey, also called a radio frequency (RF) survey, at Orchard Street Art Center. This survey will generate recommendations for maximizing network security, coverage, and capacity. Expert Advice Earlier this year, the board of directors of Orchard Street Art Center asked me to propose a plan to improve wireless coverage throughout the center’s public areas, offices, classrooms, music studios and indoor and outdoor theaters. To make sure I proposed the most effective plan possible, I decided to seek the advice of experts. Fortunately, one of the area’s top experts in wireless networking, Jamie Brookstone, president of Brookstone Network Consulting, offered the services of his staff pro bono. Thanks to his offer, I was able to meet several times with the following consultants: Lyn Luzerne Our conversations focused on ways to improve network connections for the center’s staff and patrons. I also studied information obtained from leading hardware manufacturers and software distributors. This research suggests that our first step is to conduct a site survey of our entire facility. Final Recommendation A high availability, secure wireless network is crucial to our mission at Orchard Street Art Center. Lighting and sound systems in our two theaters increasingly rely on wireless signaling, as do our classroom facilities. Furthermore, patrons and instructors now consider a secure wireless network essential for a......

International Education and Foreign Language

...Class Name:Vermont International Education and Foreign Languages as crucial elements of education Have you noticed that foreign languages can be seen and heard here and there ?Indeed, currently, a number of people are learning a foreign language to not only improve themselves but also attempt to acclimatize themselves to a new environment. Thus, learning foreign languages and absorbing international education is of vital importance. English has always been children’s friend.For me, when I was a baby,my parents and other relatives taught me some simple words, such as apple, banana, mother, pen, and so on. They said the word and I found out which picture could replace the word. Day by day, I welcomed English and it became my sweetheart. Actually, besides me, plenty of children had a meaningful childhood with the accompaniment of English, which has something to do with schools’ measures. In China, there must be foreign language courses at school. Nowadays, more and more bilingual schools which set two different language courses have been set up. Moreover, there even have been at least 3 universities that provide international education and in which all the courses are shown in English. Anyway, schools play an essential part in propagating international education and foreign languages. At the same time, a great mass of graduated students choose to go abroad for further study, because of the significant influence of some united international colleges and the......

...Graham and Campbell Harvey, Duke University* e recently conducted a comprehensive survey that analyzed the current practice of corporate finance, with particular focus on the areas of capital budgeting and capital structure. The survey results enabled us to identify aspects of corporate practice that are consistent with finance theory, as well as aspects that are hard to reconcile with what we teach in our business schools today. In presenting these results, we hope that some practitioners will find it worthwhile to observe how other companies operate and perhaps modify their own practices. It may also be useful for finance academics to consider differences between theory and practice as a reason to revisit the theory. We solicited responses from approximately 4,440 companies and received 392 completed surveys, representing a wide variety of firms and industries.1 The survey contained nearly 100 questions and explored both capital budgeting and capital structure decisions in depth. The responses to these questions enabled us to explore whether and how these corporate policies are interrelated. For example, we investigated whether companies that made more aggressive use of debt financing also tended to use more sophisticated capital budgeting techniques, perhaps because of their greater need for discipline and precision in the corporate investment process. More generally, the design of our survey allowed for a richer understanding of corporate decision-making by analyzing......

International Journal of Education and Development Using Information and Communication Technology

...International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology (IJEDICT), 2008, Vol. 4, Issue 1, pp. 49-65. The Internet in developing countries: a medium of economic, cultural and political domination Abdulkafi Albirini University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA ABSTRACT The last decade has witnessed an unprecedented diffusion of network technologies into developing countries. The technological discourse attending this diffusion has presented the new media as a utopian, egalitarian and empowering tool with the potential of ushering in a new era of development, democracy, and positive cultural change. This paper examines the economic, cultural, and political effects of the Internet within the historical context of developing countries. The paper traces the politically-inspired evolution of the Internet, its transfer into developing countries, and the economic, cultural, and political consequences of this transfer. Existing data indicate that the implementation of the Internet in most developing countries has served as a drain to the local resources, thus exacerbating their economic dependency on foreign nations. On a cultural level, the Internet’s predominantly Western design, content, and language have facilitated the proliferation of alien cultural patterns at the expense of the social experiences of the local cultures. Lastly, the Internet’s build-in tracking capabilities and its current manipulation for political purposes on......

...Survey Paper Research and Evaluation I Survey Paper This is the problem statement that is being addressed. Why do employers insist on specifying ethnic background to non Hispanic? The survey will ask questions that normally one cannot ask the employer or the interviewer. The problem is that there has been a trend with applications to single out Hispanic/Latino ethnicity. There was a time where the employer would voluntary provide the option to answer the ethnicity background but now it is nearly impossible to find an application that does not state the several ethnic choices to set parameters of the words of “Non-Hispanic” to be checked of such as White (Non-Hispanic) Native American (Non-Hispanic) African American (Non-Hispanic) Asian (Non-Hispanic) Other (Non-Hispanic) Hispanic (Anyone who's ethnic background stems from any of the Latin American, Central American, or South American Countries, Or who's parents share this ethnicity.). This research addresses a concern of why do most employers find it important to whether request the information if one is either of Hispanic background? Employers indicate the information is voluntary and is not to be taken into consideration during a hiring process but through experience it is found otherwise. For example the Internet online application provided by the employer requests that the question of identifying...
