Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Communications - Media and Politics, Politic Communications, grade: Very Good, Addis Ababa University (Addis Ababa University), course: Communication-Media/Journalism, language: English, abstract: The principal aim of this study was analyzing the discursive construction of nations, nationalities and peoples' day commemoration by the Ethiopian broadcasting corporation (EBC). Discourse theory, framing theory, and political economy of mass media were used as theoretical frame works to make sense of the research questions.The study employed critical discourse analysis with framing as a strategy to analyze the three documentary texts of the Ethiopian broadcasting corporation (EBC). The findings showed that EBC employed attribution of responsibility frame to discursively construct nations, nationalities and peoples' day commemoration. In this regard, EBC discursively constructed nations, nationalities and peoples' day as a forum of displaying their cultures and mobilizing them for development. EBC portrayed the past Ethiopian regimes as abusers of human and democratic rights of nations, nationalities and peoples. In contrast, the current regime was portrayed as democratic that ensured equality of religions, equality of languages and equality of all kinds of identities of the Ethiopian peoples. The study also revealed that some important narratives about nations, nationalities and peoples were marginalized in EBC'...

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Economics - Job market economics, grade: 1.0, , course: Development Economics, language: English, abstract: The study measures the level of technical efficiency and its determinants in Ethiopian garment factories. The study employs both Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) to compute the technical efficiency of Ethiopian garment factories and Tobit model to examine the determinant of technical inefficiency of the garment factories based on a data set of ninety four garment factories over the period of 2014-2015. The study used Akaike Information Criteria (AIC) to opt for the best function between Cobb-Douglas and Translog functions. The result reveals that Cobb-Douglas production functions better explains the production behavior of garment factories. The DEA estimation shows that the mean technical efficiency of garment factories was around to be 0.43 while such figure in SFA goes as high as 0.89 and the research indicated that export do not promote technical efficiency Ethiopian garment factories. The research indicated that DEA is more appropriate for small garment factors while SFA is more suitable to large and medium garment factories. The result from DEA model indicates that educational level of production manager, local fabric sourcing, collaboration with similar factories and membership status with Ethiopian textile and garment institute have positive contribution to efficiency.

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Communications - Journalism, Journalism Professions, grade: Very Good(A), Addis Ababa University (School of Journalism), course: Journalism and Communication, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine sustainability and the roles Ethiopian media council (EMC) plays in addressing the issues the media faces in Ethiopia. In order to assess the sustainability and roles of EMC, the study examined determinant factors of sustainability and success of the council. The study employed mainly qualitative, in-depth interview and complemented by quantitative, structured questionnaires, research methods. Data were thematically analyzed based on related literature reviews, in-depth interviews, and findings from questionnaires. The social responsibility theory remains central in guiding this study. The study revealed media community do not reach consensus on the roles of EMC plays in the industry because a clear understanding and explanation of the council role was not given. The result showed EMC is not independent (from government and media proprietors) to deal fairly with complaints and to secure public trust and confidence. The findings also indicated that the council does not bring the entire media platform (online & offline) because of this it will be difficult for the EMC to enforce a code of conduct. In addition, government interference, lack of finance, lack of commitment and cooperation, media pol...

Paul Thagard Conceptual Revolutions

6564 руб.
In this path-breaking work, Paul Thagard draws on the history and philosophy of science, cognitive psychology, and the field of artificial intelligence to develop a theory of conceptual change capable of accounting for all major scientific revolutions. The history of science contains dramatic episodes of revolutionary change in which whole systems of concepts have been replaced by new systems. Thagard provides a new and comprehensive perspective on the transformation of scientific conceptual systems. Thagard examines the Copernican and the Darwinian revolutions and the emergence of Newton's mechanics, Lavoisier's oxygen theory, Einstein's theory of relativity, quantum theory, and the geological theory of plate tectonics. He discusses the psychological mechanisms by which new concepts and links between them are formed, and advances a computational theory of explanatory coherence to show how new theories can be judged to be superior to previous ones.

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, , language: English, abstract: Ethiopia's industrial activity has been characterized by meager growth for the last epochs. But recently the Ethiopian government endorsed Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) which gives prime attention to selected industries. This study examines the likely effect of productivity expansion of labor intensive industrial activities on the macro economy, government priority industries, factor and household income and welfare of households. The sectors were selected from the Ethiopian 2009/10 SAM based on their production characteristics. The selected labor intensive sectors include dairy, grain milling, milling service, sugar refining, other food process, beverage, textile, leather product and wood products. In order to investigate the impact of a 10% increase in the technical coefficients of these labor intensive industrial activities, the study used the static stage computable general equilibrium (CGE) model. The recently updated 2009/10 Ethiopian SAM was used to calibrate important parameters of the CGE models.The 2009/10 Ethiopian SAM revealed that 45.22% and 52.13% of rural and urban households generate their income from labor.

The study is a critical analysis of the social, political and economic involvements of the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus. It explores the response and action of the EECMY in Ethiopia in its relation to the socio-political and economic situation in the country from 1959 to 1991. Focusing mainly on the developmental role of the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus during the Socialist government of Ethiopia, the study examines the informing factors behind the official position held by the EECMY on mission, as well as its actions and reactions to the socio-political and economic character of the Ethiopian society. In the conclusion it was argued that is it necessary to modify the wholistic theology of the EECMY further in the direction of, integral human liberation. The principal reason for the vicious circle of poverty and failure of modernization in Ethiopia has to do more with the predatory political culture of the Ethiopian state, which is directly responsible for the underdevelopment and political instability in Ethiopia.

1914 руб.
IS IMMORTALITY HIDDEN WITHIN OUR DNA? Lawyer-researcher Michael A. Tewell says "YES!" Our bodies die, but the law of information conservation states that information cannot be created or destroyed. If true, then is not our individuality the very expression of information we attain during our lifetime? How would evolution respond to a natural law that forbids the destruction of any information? Is not our individuality the child of this “unique information?” Like pieces of a puzzle, Michael A. Tewell uses scientific discoveries in human evolution, genetics, biophysics, neuroscience and quantum theory to build a theoretical model of what evolution may have created by adapting our genetic code to comply with the natural law of information conservation. But, be warned. Expect that what he has discovered will change your life! Part scientific mystery, part personal memoir, IMMORTALITY: The Science of Forbidden Fruit follows the author back in time to his youth; to explore how the author came to envision a life after death without the need for religious faith. How did a near-death-experience transform a shy, six-year-old, who dreamed of a simple life of Christian faith, into a fearless trial lawyer, defender of the poor—and a religious skeptic? Is evolutionary immortality the “Forbidden Fruit” of science that Christianity has feared for so long? Make your own decision with IMMORTALITY: The Science of Forbidden Fruit

Where do UFOs really come from? Layne holds an inter-dimensional, etheric-based theory. He terms those from the other realms as Etherians and the UFOs themselves sometimes appear as living creatures, referred to as aeroforms. Much of the information was corroborated by the scientific work of Trevor James Constable or came directly from intelligences channeled through Mark Probert, the greatest psychic medium of his time. Do not discount channeled material until you read this book. Layne was scientific in his approach until hearing Probert's amazing messages, which independently verifies his research. Covers propulsion systems, vibrational frequencies, and the sudden appearance of these craft more accurately than most scientific books on this subject have ever done.

6359 руб.
Is Lexical Phonology a universal theory of grammar and do all its tenets apply uniformly in all languages? Exposing the Lwidakho tone to both autosegmental and lexical phonological scrutiny presents interesting nuances which have the ability of arousing questions on what truly are the qualities of a universal theory and what makes linguists conclude that a theory or rule applies universally. It is possible that some languages fail to elicit characteristics that qualify a universal theory, hence nurturing the increasing interest in linguists to study and test theories that have been proclaimed universal. A study of Lwidakho Tone in Lexical Phonology is such an attempt. The study describes how the tenets of lexical phonology apply in the Lwidakho autosegmental data and goes ahead to assess the language vis-a-vis the principals in the two theories.

2727 руб.
The brain is the most complex computational machine known to science, even though its components (neurons) are slow and unreliable compared to a laptop computer. In this richly illustrated book, Shannon's mathematical theory of information is used to explore the metabolic efficiency of neurons, with special reference to visual perception. Evidence from a diverse range of research papers is used to show how information theory defines absolute limits on neural efficiency; limits which ultimately determine the neuroanatomical microstructure of the eye and brain. Written in an informal style, with a comprehensive glossary, tutorial appendices, explainer boxes, and a list of annotated Further Readings, this book is an ideal introduction to cutting-edge research in neural information theory.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: MSc in Finance and Investment, Mekelle University (Business and economic college), language: English, abstract: This study was conducted in Ethiopian insurance companies in order to measure the technical efficiency using DEA input oriented approach under both constant and variable return versions and Malmquist index output oriented approach in the period 2006-2010. In the first stage, the relative technical efficiency is estimated with data envelopment analysis (DEA) to establish benchmarking company, then, they are ranked according to their technical efficiency. Mann whiney- U test in the second stage was used to determine the factors affecting efficiency. The concept of efficiency concerns is an insurer's ability to produce a given set of outputs (such as premiums and investment income) via the use of inputs such as administrative and general expenses and financial capital. The insurance company is said to be technically efficient if it cannot reduce its input usage without some corresponding reduction in outputs, given the current state of production technology in the industry. The technical efficiency of Ethiopian insurance companies during the study period was 86.7%, 97.1% and 84.9% in technical efficiency, pure technical efficiency and scale efficiency, respectively. The productivity change shows Ethiopian insurance companies were quite well in efficiency change rathe...

This book explores how to conduct information system (IS) research using various approaches that are grounded in proven scientific methods. It is primarily for consumers of IS research and for individuals involved in any type of academic research across various disciplines. This book is designed to enable IS researchers and consumers to make more professional and scientific decisions about evaluating, locating, reading, and critiquing the findings of scientific research. It has been shown that many IS research community lacks its own scientific theories and models. It has also been shown that workable research problem, purpose, method, design, instruments, samples, population, data collection, and processing used in other fields are also applicable to research in IS. Thus, the stages of scientific research from problem conception to analysis and interpretation will be discussed in the context of IS research.

The use of database for different kind of data is nowadays common. Especially in sectors, which work with a huge amount of data, databases are used. Such an example is a gait analysis laboratory. During one year a huge amount of data will be collected. Based on the amount and high quality of the data, they suits perfectly for a meaningful study. To enable such a scientific analysis, based on different scientific issues, the information has to be brought together and stored at one single place. This central storage of the data makes scientific studies time-saving and costs-saving. Based on the during this thesis developed concept of a scientific database and WIDAGA it is possible to draw samples from gait analysis data for different scientific analysis easily. The amount of data for scientific use can be extended easily be cooperation of different gait analysis laboratories. But in this case the data protection act has to be minded. Especially the rules for data sharing and data exchange have to be noted. Based on functionality of WIDAGA the economic efficiency of scientific studies in the gait analysis sector can be increased.

Wesley C. Salmon Scientific Explanation and the Causal Structure of the World

2964 руб.
The philosophical theory of scientific explanation proposed here involves a radically new treatment of causality that accords with the pervasively statistical character of contemporary science. Wesley C. Salmon describes three fundamental conceptions of scientific explanation--the epistemic, modal, and ontic. He argues that the prevailing view (a version of the epistemic conception) is untenable and that the modal conception is scientifically out-dated. Significantly revising aspects of his earlier work, he defends a causal/mechanical theory that is a version of the ontic conception. Professor Salmon's theory furnishes a robust argument for scientific realism akin to the argument that convinced twentieth-century physical scientists of the existence of atoms and molecules. To do justice to such notions as irreducibly statistical laws and statistical explanation, he offers a novel account of physical randomness. The transition from the "reviewed view" of scientific explanation (that explanations are arguments) to the causal/mechanical model requires fundamental rethinking of basic explanatory concepts.

2013 Reprint of 1963 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. The theory of Boolean algebras is one of the most attractive parts of mathematics. On the one hand, Boolean algebras arise naturally in such diverse fields as logic, measure theory, topology, and ring theory, so that the study of these objects is motivated by important applications. At the same time, the theory which has been developed constitutes one of the most elegant parts of modern algebra. Finally, the subject still poses many challenging questions, some of which have considerable importance. A graduate student who wishes to study Boolean algebras will find several excellent books to smooth his way: for an introduction, the book by Halmos is probably the best of these monographs. It offers a quick route to the most attractive parts of the theory.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Information Management, grade: 1,3, University of Dusseldorf "Heinrich Heine" (Institut für Sprache und Information), language: English, abstract: This work analyzes tweets linking to scientific papers to find out if the tweets are positive, or negative or do not express an opinion. This will inform the meaning of tweets as a measure of impact in the context of altmetrics. The following research questions are examined:- In how far can sentiment analysis be used to detect positive or negative statements towards scientific papers expressed on Twitter?- Do tweets linking to scientific papers express positive or negative opinions? How do sentiments differ by academic discipline?- How do results affect the meaning of tweets to scientific papers as an altmetric indicator?

Scientific Essay from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, University of St. Gallen (Institut für Accounting, Controlling und Auditing), language: English, abstract: An economic theory which is not incorporating human behavior is not imaginable. For reasons of simplification economic models traditionally use the concept of a rational acting market participant. In order to face the inadequateness of this abstraction behavioral economic science reject the assumption of the homo economicus and adds various findings from supporting disciplines as psychology, sociology, and organizational theory. While the exploration of human behavior in finance theory has a long tradition, research in the area of psychological effects in accounting started not earlier than the mid of last century. The main intention of modern financial reporting is the supply of useful information for actual and potential investors within their decision-making process. As information processing of agentson the market for equity is part of finance theory, this is the meeting point of the two disciplines. The intention of this paper is to identify overlapping contents of behavioral research in finance and accounting. For clarification selected studies from Behavioral Finance Research (BFR) and Behavioral Accounting Research (BAR) literature will be presented and comparatively analyzed. In addition varying fields of research of both schools which are not related with each other ...

Why do small caps achieve higher risk-adjusted yields than large caps? Why do stock prices increase or decrease upon an index entry respectively deletion? Why does January records higher yields than the remaining months of the year? These as well as other observed capital market anomalies or phenomena could be insufficiently explained by the classical capital market theory, which proceeds on the assumptions that all correspondent information are reflected in the stock prices, all negative effects are directly balanced on the market level and that efficiency of arbitrage principle exists as well as that all market participants act rationally (i.e. optimizing their benefits in the sense of the homo economicus). This motivated some economists and psychologists to include behavioural scientific findings in their research of the influences on the formation of prices on the capital market. In the 1980s the theory of Behavioural Finance was developed, which challenges the homo economicus. Researchers came to the conclusion that humans are not only acting rational, but that they are also influenced by emotions, knowledge and experiences. This new scientific behavioural oriented theory, which is today a separate branch of research, contradicts the classical capital market theory and supplies explanations for the observed phenomena on the capital market.The aim of this book is to demonstrate how human behaviour influences the development on the capital market and how Behavioural Financ...

The development of physical theory is one of our greatest intellectual achievements. Its products--the currently prevailing theories of physics, astronomy, and cosmology--have proved themselves to possess intrinsic beauty and to have enormous explanatory and predictive power. This anthology of primary readings chronicles the birth and maturation of five such theories (the heliocentric theory, the electromagnetic field theory, special and general relativity, quantum theory, and the big bang theory) in the words of the scientists who brought them to life. It is the first historical account that captures the rich substance of these theories, each of which represents a fascinating story of the interplay of evidence and insight--and of dialogue among great minds. Readers sit in with Copernicus, Kepler, and Galileo as they overturn the geocentric universe; observe the genius of Faraday and Maxwell as they "discover" the electromagnetic field; look over Einstein's shoulder as he works out the details of relativity; listen in as Einstein and Bohr argue for the soul of quantum mechanics in the Completeness Debate; and watch as Hubble and others reveal the history of the universe. The editors' approach highlights the moments of discovery that rise from scientific creativity, and the presentation humanizes the scientific process, revealing the extent to which great scientists were the first to consider the philosophical implications of their work. But, most significantly...

2011 Reprint of 1960 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Paul Richard Halmos (1916-2006) was a Hungarian-born American mathematician who made fundamental advances in the areas of probability theory, statistics, operator theory, ergodic theory, and functional analysis (in particular, Hilbert spaces). He was also recognized as a great mathematical expositor. "...He (the author) uses the language and notation of ordinary informal mathematics to state the basic set-theoretic facts which a beginning student of advanced mathematics needs to know...Because of the informal method of presentation, the book is eminently suited for use as a textbook or for self-study. The reader should derive from this volume a maximum of understanding of the theorems of set theory and of their basic importance in the study of mathematics." - "Philosophy and Phenomenological Research".

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Sociology - Gender Studies, grade: 1.0, University of Lagos, language: English, abstract: We are daily confronted by science and technology, be it in the home, office, workplace or farm (Ameh 1991). Science offers a lot of possibilities for experimentation which helps to learn about and interpret the environment. It is a powerful tool for the fulfillment of the human potential of all. Scientific attitudes embrace all scientific processes of gathering information with no subjectivity, skepticism or prejudice for the advancement of science. These processes can only be objectively and confidently carried out by skillful individuals. A skill, in this sense, means a proficiency process of carrying out a task with ease, precision and speed (Busari 1995). Various literature were reviewed on the relevance of science with the view of comparing the ideas, opinions, suggestions and assertions of experts under the following areas: scientific literacy, science process skills, scientific attitude, the environment, life coping skills and exposure to science. The research work makes an attempt to determine the level of scientific skills and attitude inherent in the practices of the market women. The research was a survey research where three research questions were formulated and addressed. The work focused on twenty market women gotten through stratified random sampling of three markets in Lagos State. Data were collected using interview and...

Kirk Wessel New Product Development Performance

8139 руб.
This study contributes to the understanding of New Product Develop­ment (NPD) performance by demonstrating how formal interfirm collaborative relationships provide access to important information and how the structure of the formal interfirm network impacts NPD in different ways. The study also develops a dimension of networks, network diversity, and its contribution to NPD performance. In ex­ploring how NPD performance is affected by information available between firms with formal cooperation agreements, it suggests that two aspects of the formal external information network, variety and control, have an impact on a firms NPD performance. Network theory is used to understand information variety and control during NPD. Analyzing a firms egocentric network of formal relationships provides insight about information availability. Egocentric network diversity serves as a proxy for variety of information and egocentric structural holes (connectedness) provide an understanding of information control. The study shows that each of these factors has a differing relationship with three dimensions of NPD performance: innovative­ness, speed, and market performance.

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Communications - Media and Politics, Politic Communications, grade: Very Good, Addis Ababa University (Addis Ababa University), course: Communication-Media/Journalism, language: English, abstract: The principal aim of this study was analyzing the discursive construction of nations, nationalities and peoples' day commemoration by the Ethiopian broadcasting corporation (EBC). Discourse theory, framing theory, and political economy of mass media were used as theoretical frame works to make sense of the research questions.The study employed critical discourse analysis with framing as a strategy to analyze the three documentary texts of the Ethiopian broadcasting corporation (EBC). The findings showed that EBC employed attribution of responsibility frame to discursively construct nations, nationalities and peoples' day commemoration. In this regard, EBC discursively constructed nations, nationalities and peoples' day as a forum of displaying their cultures and mobilizing them for development. EBC portrayed the past Ethiopian regimes as abusers of human and democratic rights of nations, nationalities and peoples. In contrast, the current regime was portrayed as democratic that ensured equality of religions, equality of languages and equality of all kinds of identities of the Ethiopian peoples. The study also revealed that some important narratives about nations, nationalities and peoples were marginalized in EBC'...
