In this third review of books about social enterprise, were going to look at a book called Be a Changemaker. This is a young adult book (hence the YA in the library call number) meaning it is written for young people, but I found it so interesting that I would recommend it for anyone who wants to know what a social enterprise is and is wondering about how to start one.. The author, Laurie Ann Thomson, has written an informative and inspiring book encouraging young people to not wait, but to do things right now, today, that they see needing to be done.. The basic impulse or motivation to start a social enterprise isnt that different than from other businesses. Someone sees a need that is not being filled and then fills it.. The major difference between a social enterprise and a normal business, the reason we call them social enterprises, is that they often start with an observation of a social problem or injustice and a thought for making the world a better place, fixing something: Someone ...

Because the Social Enterprise Action Plan only lasted for three years from 2014 to 2016, it was not possible to fully implement the four strategies of adjusting current laws and regulations, building a development platform, raising funds, and advocating for business incubation. Many improvements are still waiting to be made and many opportunities to advance development also remain to be explored. Social enterprise policies implicate many aspects of administration and involve many departments, which has resulted in the unconcentrated use of resources and energy, and repeated investment from the private sector, which requires integration. Using as Key Performance Indicators (KPI) the number of events and forums held for this plan, and the number of participants who joined these public activities, is also believed to be aiming at the wrong target and to bear little significance. Nonetheless, the contribution that the Social Enterprise Action Plan has made to the development of the social enterprise ...

Parasitism is a major challenge to the health and welfare of organic livestock. The PrOPara (Tackling the parasitological challenges in organic ruminant farming practices) project evaluated available means to monitor and control endoparasites and generated information and tools that could be readily used by organic farmers to improve animal health and welfare. One of the key activities was assessing the socio-economic impacts of alternative gastro-intestinal nematode (GIN) control practices in small ruminants. I sat down with the project task leader, Simon Moakes, to discuss the project and the socio-economic assessment.
The prime objective of this study is to assess the socio-economic impact of wetlands in the study area; the secondary objective is to establish the condition of the wetlands and to propose remedial measures. Primary and secondary data were used for this study. As primary data, we employed direct observation, questionnaire survey and group discussion. As secondary data, we utilized statistical data from Navithanveli DS Division, previous researches and general ecological works. In Navithenveli DS Division, inhabitants are benefitted by wetlands in many ways. Paddy cultivations, vegetable cultivation, small-scale fishing, biodiversity, groundwater recharge, gardening, Tule mat industry and water for domestic usages. Indiscriminate activities of inhabitants, unplanned and improper infrastructure have caused many challenges for the wetlands in the study area. Many remedial measures have been recommended to conserve the wetlands in the study area ...
The Human Immunodeficiency Virus /Acquired Immuno-deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) epidemic is one of the greatest challenges currently facing Zimbabwe. With a national adult prevalence rate of 24.6%, no crisis in the history of Zimbabwe has ever presented such a threat to social and economic progress, as has done this epidemic. Little attention has however been paid to the impact of the disease on agriculture in the communal areas, where the majority of the Zimbabwean people live. The main objective of this study was thus to establish the socio-economic impact of the HIV/AIDS pandemic on communal agriculture. To accomplish this objective, data were collected in Chundu and Kandeya to find out how the HIV/AIDS disease is impacting on household medical costs, transport costs, funeral costs and on crop production. Data were collected through household questionnaires, which were administered to 188 and 155 randomly selected household heads in Kandeya and Chundu wards respectively. Qualitative data ...

Introduction: Telementoring(TM) is an emerging tool that enables experts to provide consultation to other surgeons remotely. It has not been studied in the simulation environment. Simulation allows residents to train independently to gain proficiency. The aim of this study is to assess the effectiveness of distant telementoring in a simulated mock operating room to identify technical error and shorten the pathway to proficiency.. Methods: Surgical residents were randomized into two groups. The control group (n=9) performed a baseline laparoscopic cholecystectomy on a virtual reality system (METI, SurgicalSim) in a mock operating room followed by two additional trials. The telementored group (n=6) performed a baseline trial, followed by a telementored trial using on-screen annotation and two-way audio, and an additional non-telementored trial. Simulation metrics of time (T), tip trajectory (TT), excessive traction (ET), and clipping errors (CE) were recorded. Independent scoring of the VR ...

The quality of life is normally taken to mean the general well being of people and the environment in which they live in. it is undeniable that recent scientific and technological innovations have enhanced the quality of life for many. However, the developments of today that promise us a better quality of life are also the ones that can worsen the quality of life. Science and technology give their creators and inventors ever-greater supremacy and control, for good or otherwise, over the physical universe. Indeed, the possible dire consequences and impact of misused and misapplied innovations can affect the quality of life drastically. Technological innovations have resulted in an improved and well-established system of telecommunications and satellites. This leads to ease in access of communication system globally. International calls can now be made so readily that two people at separate ends of the world can now stay instantly in contact with a touch of the dial. But, with the onslaught of the ...
Considerably more research needs to be done to understand how successful technological innovations and change processes are sustained and scaled to new learning contexts. Without a better understanding of successful technological innovation, the wider field and education community are unable to benefit and build capacity. A model is presented that explores how research can better inform sustainability and scalability in technological innovations. It is represented as four loops: Organization, Innovation, Research and New Contexts. Three international case studies of technological innovation are analyzed to demonstrate use of the framework and model. Results show that research can be designed to support sustainability and scalability, but that this needs to be balanced with other factors to support a successful technological innovation. Implications for supporting technological innovations are explored.

Much of the environment problems arise from the supply and utilization of energy for industrial, transportation and domestic markets. The use of fossil fuels can result in environmental, atmospheric, and terrestrial problems, including organic, acid rain, and global warming hazards. Here I will address the CO{sub 2} global greenhouse problem and touch upon the nuclear industry and its dilemma as well. We recognize the possibility of global natural feedback phenomena which may limit and mitigate anthropomorphic global greenhouse climate change, however, here I am limiting the discussion to anthropomorphic (man made) technological mitigation process as opposed to adaptation which means adapting to change. ...
Alternative fuel sources come in all shapes and sizes. But if you are confused about what they are, here is a short definition. Alternative fuels are non-conventional or advanced sources of fuel; substances that can be used as fuel sources that are not conventional.
Wind as well as solar power are taken into consideration the future as far as electrical generation approaches, as well as the majority of people recognize that gradually there will certainly be more of a change away from nonrenewable fuel sources and also toward renewables, simply as a result of decreasing resources triggering costs to increase. Essentially, there are 2 various aspects that cause the rates of each kind of power generation method to change, nonrenewable fuel sources being linked to the rate of the fuel source itself and renewables being linked to the expense of tools.. Nonrenewable fuel sources are shed in order to produce power for public usage. The prices that are paid are comprised of transport as well as human costs, yet likewise entail the price to either mine or buy the fuel sources. As materials obtain smaller, either naturally or through political negotiations ending up being strained, the rate goes up. Renewable energy is created making use of fuel sources which have no ...

In 2010, Harold Varmus began his stewardship as the director of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) with a key initiative called the Provocative Questions Project. The primary purpose of the Provocative Questions Project is to invigorate and engage a diverse range of scientists in a challenging intellectual exercise to define and then solve the major unsolved or neglected problems in oncology (1). The initiative builds on a rich history of scientific discoveries and comes at a time of great scientific and technological advances in fields like genomics and related disciplines. The NCIs Provocative Questions Project differs from larger global initiatives that tend to set overarching goals (e.g., the United Nations Millennium Development Goals) or post challenges (e.g., Gates Foundations Grand Challenges in Global Health; ref. 1). Instead, this NCI initiative identifies and funds the search for answers to specific scientific questions, reflecting the belief that addressing specific and ...

Social enterprise is a paradox: It is defined by inspiring visions of equity and inclusion, yet success within the field tends to be highly exclusive. Emily Wanderers research takes a closer look at the systems supporting social entrepreneurs and the unintentional reproduction of the very problems social enterprise aims to address, foremost of which is racial inequalities. Guided by faculty advisorsBanu Ozkazanc-Pan and Michael D. Kennedy, the research is constituted by 29 interviews in four U.S. regions, and focuses on how people of color experience social enterprise accelerators. They aim to understand if there are ways that the accelerator organizations can change to improve equity outcomes, given that is the goal of the field.. She takes an intersectional approach so as to assess who is still missing from the narrative of social enterprise and aims to expose why this narrative persists. A holistic approach informs the work including organizational theory, critical race and gender, and ...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Tobacco is becoming one of the single biggest causes of death worldwide. By 2030 it is expected to kill 10 million people per year and developing countries will account for 70% of all tobacco deaths. Previous tobacco studies performed in Laos, have reported the rate of active smoking in Lao population. However, no data concerning the burden and socio-economic impact of tobacco-related diseases in Laos, is available as yet. The aims of this study are to determine the burden of active tobacco-related socio-economic cost of stroke, lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) in Laos and to estimate the burden and national socio-economic impact of tobacco-related diseases. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional and multi-centered study using a purposive sampling method. One hundred and nine patients hospitalized in Mahosot, Mittapab and Sethathirath hospitals due to cerebral thrombosis, lung cancer and COPD were included. A structured questionnaire form was used ...
This chapter argues that it is time to advance a legal scholarship agenda in the field of social entrepreneurship that prioritizes function over form, grounds theoretical observations in empirical research, and highlights the increasingly important role that corporate governance is likely to play in the evolution of the social entrepreneurship field. But it is not only the corporate governance of social enterprises that matters. The governance structures of those that invest in social enterprises matter too. Legal scholarship that focuses exclusively on how social enterprises are formed and governed runs the risk of overlooking another important driver of corporate behavior - that is, the investors that are mobilizing and aggregating sources of capital for companies engaged in social entrepreneurship.. ...

Biologics patent applications typically contain large numbers of sequences and various combinations of sequence segments. The process of compiling and annotating these sequence lists can be time consuming at best, and in the worst case, errors may go unnoticed until after the patent application has been published. In fact, a substantial number of published patent applications contain serious errors. Typical errors include cases in which the CDR or variable domain combinations are not unique and unintentionally claimed redundantly within a patent application or a CDR or variable domain definition are not consistent between the patent application text and the sequence listing. Other typical errors are having individual sequences concatenated instead of listed as separate sequences or listing incorrect sequence variants. Genedata Biologics helps to prevent such serious errors by automatically tracking, annotating, processing, and properly formatting all relevant sequences for patent applications. ...
Robert Marquez of the University of Maryland. March 2004. Abstract: We study the economic forces that drive innovation in credit-risk assessment and the role of regulators in fostering technological progress. Recent regulatory proposals base capital-adequacy standards on banks own internal systems and call for regulators to establish a set of best practices for the industry. We find that the dissemination of innovations mandated by this approach generates a tension between lowering aggregate banking-system risk ex post and providing banks with incentives to innovate ex ante. Moreover, this tension arises purely from regulatory concern for bank safety and not from any interest in promoting competition. We show that achieving the optimal level of innovation requires that regulators restrict the diffusion of technology. If regulators are unable to commit to specific dissemination policies, it may be beneficial to let banks assert intellectual property rights through, for instance, the patenting ...
Most shockingly, economists Angus Deaton, winner of the 2015 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science, and Anne Case found that mortality for white middle-age Americans has been increasing over the past 25 years, due to an epidemic of suicides and afflictions stemming from substance abuse.. Is automation, driven by progress in technology, in general, and artificial intelligence and robotics, in particular, the main cause for the economic decline of working Americans?. In economics, it is easier to agree on the data than to agree on causality. Many other factors can be in play, such as globalization, deregulation, decline of unions and the like. Yet in a 2014 poll of leading academic economists conducted by the Chicago Initiative on Global Markets, regarding the impact of technology on employment and earnings, 43 percent of those polled agreed with the statement that information technology and automation are a central reason why median wages have been stagnant in the U.S. over the decade, ...
