Working at the interface: The descriptive relevance of Grunig and Hunt 's theories to public relations practices in south east Queensland schools.  [PDF]
Anne Lane
PRism Online PR Journal , 2003,
Abstract: This article examines the relevance of James Grunig and Todd Hunt 's (1984) theories to public relations practitioners roles in south east Queensland schools. It focuses in particular on the two-way symmetric model in this context. The geographical boundaries of the research mean that this article is intended primarily as an exploratory, descriptive analysis of a specific area rather than an exhaustive treatise on the general topic of public relations in Australian schools. However, it is hoped that it will prove useful in identifying bases for further study and discussion.
The James Function  [PDF]
Christopher N. B. Hammond,Warren P. Johnson,Steven J. Miller
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: We investigate the properties of the James function, associated with Bill James's so-called "log5 method," which assigns a probability to the result of a game between two teams based on their respective winning percentages. We also introduce and study a class of functions, which we call Jamesian, that satisfy the same a priori conditions that were originally used to describe the James function.
The James versions

Abstract: [First paragraph] C.L.R. James: His Intellectual Legacies. SELWYN R. CUDJOE & WILLIAM E. CAIN (eds.). Amherst: University of Massachusetts Press, 1995. x + 476 pp. (Cloth USS 55.00, Paper US$ 19.95) C.L.R. James on the "Negro Question." SCOTT MCLEMEE (ed.). Jackson: University Press of Mississippi, 1996. xxxvii + 154 pp. (Paper US$ 16.95) C.L.R. James: A Political Biography. KENT WORCESTER. Albany: State University of New York, 1996. xvi + 311 pp. (Paper US$ 19.95) "Why is there no socialism in the United States?," asked the German sociologist Werner Sombart (1906:43) in a famous essay at the beginning of the present century. Immigrants, it is true, had brought socialist notions with them in the middle of the past century, and had caused some anarchistic wavelets in the 1880s; there had been radical protest movements such as the Grangers, and a fledgling third party like the Populists; there were famous social critics and Utopians like Henry George and Edward Bellamy, but - in striking contrast to other parts of the Hemisphere - a socialist movement of any political weight never came off the ground.
James bundles  [PDF]
Roger Fenn,Colin Rourke,Brian Sanderson
Mathematics , 2003,
Abstract: We study cubical sets without degeneracies, which we call square sets. These sets arise naturally in a number of settings and they have a beautiful intrinsic geometry; in particular a square set C has an infinite family of associated square sets J^i(C), i=1,2,..., which we call James complexes. There are mock bundle projections p_i:|J^i(C)|-->|C| (which we call James bundles) defining classes in unstable cohomotopy which generalise the classical James--Hopf invariants of Omega(S^2). The algebra of these classes mimics the algebra of the cohomotopy of Omega(S^2) and the reduction to cohomology defines a sequence of natural characteristic classes for a square set. An associated map to BO leads to a generalised cohomology theory with geometric interpretation similar to that for Mahowald orientation [M Mahowald, Ring Spectra which are Thom complexes, Duke Math. J. 46 (1979) 549--559] and [B Sanderson, The geometry of Mahowald orientations, SLN 763 (1978) 152--174].
TQM AND BUSINESS EXCELLENCE  [PDF]
ANDREEA IONIC?,VIRGINIA B?LEANU,EDUARD EDELHAUSER,SABINA IRIMIE
Annals of the University of Petrosani : Economics , 2010,
Abstract: Our paper discuss the hot” topic of Business Excellence (BE) aiming to highlight and clarify the connections with Total Quality Management (TQM). Thus, we describe the quality movement from inspection to statistical quality control and the Japanese Age” of quality followed then by Total Quality Control (TQC) and TQM developments that drived to the models of BE. After that, we present some perspectives of defining the excellence at national and international level and an overview of BE models with focus on the referential ones. Finally, we attempt to sketch the coordinates of the "journey" through TQM towards excellence in Romania.

Quasiminimal structures and excellence  [PDF]
Martin Bays,Bradd Hart,Tapani Hyttinen,Meeri Kes?l?,Jonathan Kirby
Mathematics , 2012, DOI: 10.1112/blms/bdt076
Abstract: We show that the excellence axiom in the definition of Zilber's quasiminimal excellent classes is redundant, in that it follows from the other axioms. This substantially simplifies a number of categoricity proofs.
Role of Enterprise Excellence Initiative  [cached]
DHIRENDRA KUMAR
International Journal of Business and Management , 2010, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v5n8p3
Abstract: The Enterprise Excellence (EE) philosophy is a holistic model for leading an enterprise to total excellence by focusing on the needs of the customer whether within the state, the nation, and the world. The rate of change in today’s competitive world is constantly increasing. Competition is forcing businesses to be well funded and at the same time, customers are becoming unpredictable. These requirements are creating practical problems of the modern world and the applied research initiative will solve these problems. For example, applied research from enterprise point of view will focus on uncovering what needs are not being met within a targeted market and use that information to begin formulating products or services (including existing products) that will be attractive and desirable. Therefore, to catalyze the transformation of economies tied to these industries, the Enterprise Excellence Initiative (EEI) must be nurtured and developed.
Excellence and equity in eye care
Nick Astbury
Community Eye Health Journal , 2009,
Abstract: The theme of the 8th General Assembly was ‘Excellence and equity in eye care’ - superlative sound bites perhaps, but when those words are considered in the context of VISION 2020, they take on a meaning that should define all our efforts to combat avoidable blindness.
