Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Information Management, University of Namibia (Department of Library and Information Science), course: Master of Information Science, language: English, abstract: This study investigated the information needs and seeking behaviour of pastors in Namibia. The purpose of the study was to establish the information required by pastors to carry out their work, how they seek information and the problems they encounter in doing so. A mixed-method approach research was used to meet the objectives of the study. A stratified quota sample of 200 pastors was used based on Walpole's formula for proportions. One hundred and thirty-eight (69%) participants responded to the questionnaire, while 16 pastors from different denominations in Windhoek, purposively selected as key informants, were interviewed. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) basic level descriptive statistics were used to analyse quantitative data from the questionnaires, while content analysis was used to analyse qualitative data from the interviews.The findings of this research are that pastors need information for counselling, community development, administration, evangelism, preaching, teaching, public relations and leading a service. When pastors do not find information from formal sources (Bible concordances, Bible commentaries, Bible translations, etc.) in their personal libraries, they turn to informal sources of information (Holy Spirit and other ...

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The beginning of the 21st century with the fear of the "Year 2000"-threat (Y2K) became a milestone for the "Information Age", a term coined for the post-industrial stage of leading countries „[…] when information and information technologies become the main strategic national resource which results in an avalanche growth of information dependence in all spheres of society and state activities.”. In organisations the awareness of the dependence on information has led to corporate initiatives to treat information as an asset, which includes various efforts for its protection. Management trends such as "knowledge management" have identified "knowledge sharing" as a new means for achieving competitive advantage, thus promoting information to be disseminated. Due to an ever closer relationship with customers, suppliers and even competitors, organisations have expanded their "information network" outside of the original boundaries. The dualism of protection of information assets on the one hand and a free flow of information has been identified to become a challenge for organisations, described as „[…] how to satisfy this need to share information without exposing the organization to undue risk.”. With the information society implying radical changes, the need to act has been accelerated by a new mindset reacting to the advent of "e-business". Information Security (InfoSec) is often mistaken to be a purely tech...

Christian Sallaberry Geographical Information Retrieval in Textual Corpora

5865.14 руб.
This book addresses the field of geographic information extraction and retrieval from textual documents. Geographic information retrieval is a rapidly emerging subject, a trend fostered by the growing power of the Internet and the emerging possibilities of data dissemination. After positioning his work in this field in Chapter 1, the author makes proposals in the following two chapters. Chapter 2 focuses on spatial and temporal information indexing and retrieval in corpora of textual documents. Propositions for both spatial and temporal information retrieval (IR) are made. Chapter 3 tackles the use of generalized spatial and temporal indexes, which are produced from there in the framework of multi-criteria IR. Geographic IR (GIR) is discussed at length, since this IR combines the criteria of spatial, temporal and thematic research. The author provides a rich bibliographical study of the current approaches focused on the modeling and retrieval of spatial and temporal information in textual documents, and similarity measures developed thus far in the literature. The book concludes with a broad perspective of the remaining scientific challenges. Several areas of research are discussed, such as integration of a domain-based ontology, modeling of spatial footprints from the interpretation of spatial relation, and parsing of relations between features deemed relevant within a document resulting from a GIR process. Contents Foreword, Christophe Claramunt. 1. Access by Geographic Content to Textual Corpora: What Orientations ? 2. Spatial and Temporal Information Retrieval in Textual Corpora. 3. Multicriteria Information Retrieval in Textual Corpora. 4. General Conclusion. About the Authors Christian Sallaberry is currently Assistant Professor at the Law, Economics and Management Faculty in Pau, France. His current research interests are in the fields of geographical information retrieval (GIR) in textual corpora: spatial, temporal and thematic information recognition, analyzing, indexing and retrieval. He is interested in spatial, temporal and thematic criteria combinations within a GIR process.

In order to answer the research question, a quantitative online survey is performed. An experimental task of either one of two tables with different level of information load is implemented. The two groups can be compared in order to reveal significant differences. Furthermore, the moderator effect of perceived information overload on satisfaction of a decision is analyzed.

The subject of dividend policy has passionate economists for many decennia, resulting in intensive theoretical modelling and empirical examinations. In this study the main values of dividends are discussed. The value of signalling is seen as the most convincing. An overview of the main theoretical models and empirical studies on the information value of dividend is presented. The purpose of the research is to test if the argument of information value finds empirical evidence among Dutch listed companies. It is showed that the amount of dividends contain signals about the future earnings of a firm. Especially when changes in dividend are unexpected this information signal is strong. Though, the analysis gives not much predictive power for the future. The results differ from the findings of Dorsman (1988) who concluded that there is no significant value of information in dividends of the Dutch stock market.

The scholarly community has become increasingly aware of the differences between Roman myths and the more familiar myths of Greece. Early Rome: Myth and Society steps in to provide much-needed modern and accessible translations and commentaries on Italian legends. This work examines the tales of Roman pre-and legendary history, discusses relevant cultural and contextual information, and presents author biographies. This book offers updated translations of key texts, including authors who are often absent from classical mythology textbooks, such as Dionysius of Halicarnassus and Servius. Editor Jaclyn Neel debunks the idea that Romans were unimaginative copyists by spotlighting the vitality and flexibility of Italian myth – particularly those parts that are less closely connected to Greek tales, such as the story of Caeculus of Praeneste. Finally, by calling attention to the Italian rather than Roman nature of the collection, this book suggests that Roman culture was broader than the city itself. This important work offers: Up-to-date and accessible translations of Roman and Italic legends from authors throughout antiquity Examination of compelling tales that involve the Roman equivalent of Greek “heroes” Unique view of the strength and plasticity of Roman and Italic myth, particularly the parts less closely connected to familiar Greek tales Intelligent discussion of relevant cultural and contextual information Argument that Roman culture reached far beyond the city of Rome Fresh and readable, Early Rome: Myth and Society offers essential reading for students of ancient Rome as well as those interested in Roman and Greek mythology.

The goal of this book is to describe information search strategies and techniques critical for business practitioners and to pinpoint credible sources of information on specific topics in company and industry research. In today's information age, businesses have an ever-growing need to obtain quality information in a timely manner and incorporate it effectively into decision making, and when such a need occurs business managers often face a situation of performing information research themselves with a limited budget. Rather than frantically running searches on random websites with much time wasted, it is imperative that they understand the nature of business information research, develop a systematic plan for data collection, and use appropriate information from credible sources. Learning and becoming familiar with the significance of these information resources is a key for successful business research.

Problems in stochastic homogenization theory typically deal with approximating dierential operators with rapidly oscillatory random coefficients by operators with homogenized deterministic coefficients. Even though the convergence of these operators in multiple scales is well-studied in the existing literature in the form of a Law of Large Numbers, very little is known about their rate of convergence or their large deviations. This work establishes analytic results for the Gaussian correction in homogenization, and large deviation results for homogenization problems in random media. Several special cases are analyzed in detail.

Information retrieval is a central and essential activity. It is indeed difficult to find a human activity that does not need to retrieve information in an environment which is often increasingly digital: moving and navigating, learning, having fun, communicating, informing, making a decision, etc. Most human activities are intimately linked to our ability to search quickly and effectively for relevant information, the stakes are sometimes extremely important: passing an exam, voting, finding a job, remaining autonomous, being socially connected, developing a critical spirit, or simply surviving. The author of this book presents a summary of work undertaken over several years relative to the behaviors and cognitive processes involved in information retrieval in digital environments. He presents several examples of theoretical models and studies to better understand the difficulties, behaviors and strategies of individuals searching for information in digital environments.

Alfred Mully Adoption of IFRS in the Netherlands. Impact on value relevance

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich BWL - Bank, Börse, Versicherung, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Listed Dutch firms are required by law to prepare their financial statements in accordance with the International financial Statements (IFRS) since 2005. Before 2005, listed Dutch firms prepared their financial statements using Dutch law, Title 9 of book two of the Dutch Civil Code. It is interesting to investigate the effect of the implementation of IFRS. Is the quality of the financial statements improved by the implementation of IFRS for the users of the financial statements, such as investors, suppliers and banks? This question can be answered in many ways, looking at different characteristics of the accounting information, for example the comparability, the relevance, the reliability and the understandability. In this thesis the relevance will be studied. Information has the quality of relevance when it influences the economic decisions of users by helping them evaluate past, present or future events or conforming, or correcting, their past evaluations. (IFRS Handbook, 2007, p. 40) In order to be relevant the accounting information must reflect the information needs of the users in valuing a company. In order to determine the market price of a company, investors need accounting information that reflects the share price of a company. The research done studying the relevance of accounting information for valuating companies is called value-relevance research. The im...

Theories and practices to assess critical information in a complex adaptive system Organized for readers to follow along easily, The Fitness of Information: Quantitative Assessments of Critical Evidence provides a structured outline of the key challenges in assessing crucial information in a complex adaptive system. Illustrating a variety of computational and explanatory challenges, the book demonstrates principles and practical implications of exploring and assessing the fitness of information in an extensible framework of adaptive landscapes. The book’s first three chapters introduce fundamental principles and practical examples in connection to the nature of aesthetics, mental models, and the subjectivity of evidence. In particular, the underlying question is how these issues can be addressed quantitatively, not only computationally but also explanatorily. The next chapter illustrates how one can reduce the level of complexity in understanding the structure and dynamics of scientific knowledge through the design and use of the CiteSpace system for visualizing and analyzing emerging trends in scientific literature. The following two chapters explain the concepts of structural variation and the fitness of information in a framework that builds on the idea of fitness landscape originally introduced to study population evolution. The final chapter presents a dual-map overlay technique and demonstrates how it supports a variety of analytic tasks for a new type of portfolio analysis. The Fitness of Information: Quantitative Assessments of Critical Evidence also features: In-depth case studies and examples that characterize far-reaching concepts, illustrate underlying principles, and demonstrate profound challenges and complexities at various levels of analytic reasoning Wide-ranging topics that underline the common theme, from the subjectivity of evidence in criminal trials to detecting early signs of critical transitions and mechanisms behind radical patents An extensible and unifying framework for visual analytics by transforming analytic reasoning tasks to the assessment of critical evidence The Fitness of Information: Quantitative Assessments of Critical Evidence is a suitable reference for researchers, analysts, and practitioners who are interested in analyzing evidence and making decisions with incomplete, uncertain, and even conflicting information. The book is also an excellent textbook for upper-undergraduate and graduate-level courses on visual analytics, information visualization, and business analytics and decision support systems.

Patrick Roy Voluntary Disclosure of Company Information - Costly Additions or a step towards Competitive Advantage.

Abstract: In a first step, this ERP derives the theoretical necessity to provide voluntary strategic and non-financial Information. It is argued that companies are an integral part of a common environment and society, acting in a framework of interdependent relationships. A company is more and more seen as a community of interests of different groups, and it can only act in an optimal way if the demands of all groups are taken into account and its behaviour is adjusted accordingly. In this context, interest groups' demands for company Information depend an the possibilities of improvements in decision making or monitoring that arise with its use, which in turn is mainly determined by the potential of Information to reduce uncertainty in the areas of interest. For external decision-makers, uncertainty often arises from sources about which conservative company statements provide little insight. Due to the traditional, finance-oriented concept of disclosure, this is particularly true for strategic and non-financial aspects. Related additional Information that is voluntarily provided can considerably reduce uncertainty, even more so as part of audited statements. Conventional financial reporting and existing disclosure requirements will generally not nearly satisfy those information needs of user groups. Any economic action, though, should only be taken if related benefits are exceeding related costs. This priority of economicalness also holds for companies' production, p...

Historical maps are fascinating documents and a valuable source of information for scientists of various disciplines. Many of these maps are available as scanned bitmap images, but in order to make them searchable in useful ways, a structured representation of the contained information is desirable.This book deals with the extraction of spatial information from historical maps. This cannot be expected to be solved fully automatically (since it involves difficult semantics), but is also too tedious to be done manually at scale.The methodology used in this book combines the strengths of both computers and humans: it describes efficient algorithms to largely automate information extraction tasks and pairs these algorithms with smart user interactions to handle what is not understood by the algorithm. The effectiveness of this approach is shown for various kinds of spatial documents from the 16th to the early 20th century.

Information is a crucial component in any productive process. Apart from having the known factors of production, that is, land, capital, labor and enterprise, information is important for the purpose of locating, acquiring, and integrating those factors of production to make them bear the expected results. This means that information managers are increasingly being faced with the challenge of being even keener as they provide information to their clients. It is important for the information managers to avail information in an environment more easy to access, retrieve and use, by the information users. Classification is one of the very vital tools to enable information managers attain this goal. This book focuses on classification of information materials and all the aspects that entail classification. These include abstracting, Thesaurus, Classification schemes and many other aspects. The book is helpful to Middle level Colleges and University Students, Information managers, Librarians, Lecturers and other stakeholders in information management.

Scientific Study from the year 2017 in the subject Computer Science - Bioinformatics, grade: 10, , language: English, abstract: In observing interactive processes, conversion of observed uncertainty to observer certainty is natural phenomenon creating Yes-No actions of information Bit and its information observer.Observer emerges from interacting random field of Kolmogorov probabilities which link Kolmogorov 0-1 law probabilities and Bayesian probabilities observing Markov diffusion process by probabilistic 0-1 impulses. Each No-0 action cuts maximum of impulse minimal entropy while following Yes-1 action transfers maxim between impulses performing dual principle of converting process entropy to information.Merging Yes-No actions generate microprocess within bordered impulse producing Bit with free information when the microprocess probability approaches 1. Interacting bits memorizes each impulse free information which attracts multiple Bits moving macroprocess that self-joins triplet macrounits. Each memorized information binds reversible microprocess within impulse with irreversible macroprocess.The observation automatically converts cutting entropy to information macrounits. Macrounits logically self-organize information networks IN encoding the units in geometrical structures enclosing triplet code. Multiple IN binds their ending triplets which encloses observer information cognition and intelligence. The observer cognition assembles common units through multiple attracti...

In my literature research I have found several ways of handling information security. There is no grounded theory in the field of information security, but there are several guidelines, frameworks and standards, and there is a lot of research about these. I have also done research about the human factor, to verify that the topic is valid. I have done a CASE study of the enterprise; to get detailed information of how they handled information security. I found that the method that has been used and has parallels to frameworks and standards I found in the literature research. By my findings in the literature research and the CASE study, I have been able to develop a simple framework for handling information security in organizations. The framework is suited especially to medium organizations, with less ability to implement several frameworks and standards. Large companies can use frameworks like Cobit, ITIL and ISO standards. The key elements of the framework is a three dimensional cube containing the elements of business requirements, IT resources and information security requirements. I have not found any framework in literature that has linked this combination together.

During the reception of a piece of information, we are never passive. Depending on its origin and content, from our personal beliefs and convictions, we bestow upon this piece of information, spontaneously or after reflection, a certain amount of confidence. Too much confidence shows a degree of naivety, whereas an absolute lack of it condemns us as being paranoid. These two attitudes are symmetrically detrimental, not only to the proper perception of this information but also to its use. Beyond these two extremes, each person generally adopts an intermediate position when faced with the reception of information, depending on its provenance and credibility. We still need to understand and explain how these judgements are conceived, in what context and to what end. Spanning the approaches offered by philosophy, military intelligence, algorithmics and information science, this book presents the concepts of information and the confidence placed in it, the methods that militaries, the first to be aware of the need, have or should have adopted, tools to help them, and the prospects that they have opened up. Beyond the military context, the book reveals ways to evaluate information for the good of other fields such as economic intelligence, and, more globally, the informational monitoring by governments and businesses.
