International Journal of Recent Technology and Engineering , 2012,
Abstract: In Peer-to-Peer networks, many securitymechanisms are based on specific assumptions of identity and arevulnerable to attacks when these assumptions are violated. Thetraditional security techniques developed for the centralizeddistributed systems like client-server networks are insufficient forP2P networks by the virtue of their centralized nature. Theabsence of a central authority in a P2P network poses uniquechallenges for reputation management in the network. Thesechallenges include identity management of the peers, securereputation data management, Sybil attacks, and above all,availability of reputation data.In this paper, we present a cryptographic protocol for ensuringsecure and timely availability of the reputation data of a peer toother peers. The past behavior of the peer is encapsulated in itsdigital reputation, and is subsequently used to predict its futureactions. As a result, a peer’s reputation motivates it to cooperateand desist from malicious activities. The cryptographic protocol iscoupled with self-certification and cryptographic mechanisms foridentity management and countering Sybil attack. We illustratethe security and the efficiency of the system analytically and bymeans of simulations in a completely decentralized P2P network.
Managing reputation for ‘good works’ while undertaking commercial activities: Communication best practice guidelines for charities  [PDF]
Tom Watson,Anna Marie White
PRism Online PR Journal , 2010,
Abstract: Charities and not-for-profit organisations have traditionally eschewed commercial operations in favour of direct fundraising from supporters. Competitive pressures, however, are driving charities to take on ‘dual citizenship’ through activity in both profit (commercial) and non-profit (voluntary) sectors. There has been little scholarly attention or professional focus on the impact that commercial trading by charities has on relations with key stakeholders, such as supporters, and upon the reputation of the community-focused organisations. This paper reports a case study of a UK charity and explores supporters’ perceptions of the impact of commercial trading upon the organisation’s reputation as well as their relationship and level of engagement with the organisation. It found that donors are in support of commercial activities, as long as these are aligned with the charity’s values. The study, however, also found that commercial activities should not deflect the charity from its perceived and announced mission.

Placing the poor while keeping the rich in their place: Separating strategies for optimally managing residential mobility and assimilation  [cached]

Demographic Research , 2005,
Abstract: A central objective of modern US housing policy is deconcentrating poverty through "housing mobility programs" that move poor families into middle class neighborhoods. Pursuing these policies too aggressively risks inducing middle class flight, but being too cautious squanders the opportunity to help more poor families. This paper presents a stylized dynamicoptimization model that captures this tension. With base-caseparameter values, cost considerations limit mobility programs before flight becomes excessive. However, for modest departures reflecting stronger flight tendencies and/or weaker destination neighborhoods, other outcomes emerge. In particular, we find state-dependence and multiple equilibria, including both de-populated and oversized outcomes. For certain sets of parameters there exists a Skiba point that separates initial conditions for which the optimal strategy leads to substantial flight and depopulation from those for which the optimal strategy retains or even expands the middle class population. These results suggest the value of estimating middle-class neighborhoods' "carrying capacity" for absorbing mobility program placements and further modeling of dynamic response.

Abstract: In the length of time many new retail features were developed, as a part of the total value chain (from manufacturer to customer). One such feature is: the development of private brands (private-label merchandise, private-label brands, store brands, house brands, own brands). Because of economic importance, both in theory and in practice, more complex stress was put on its research from various perspectives: the individual countries and regions - geographic, retail companies and formats (types of stores), product categories, as well as from the perspective of the perception of customers / consumers. In the context of it, special empirical emphasis was placed on the effects of private brands on business performance in retail, in particular, on cost, gross margin, profit, in other words, on profit indicators, such as: rate of profits from sales, profit rate of assets and the rate of profit of the share capital. Having such starting point, this paper attempts to, as thoroughly as it can, primarily empirically, investigate the impact of the development of private brands in the retail business performance. Using the latest available relevant data gathered from various scientific and professional sources, including well-known agencies that primarily conduct empirical analysis of private brands in some countries, companies and retail formats and product categories. The results should serve as a reliable basis for creating the most efficient strategy for managing the development of private brands in order to improve business performance in retail. This is especially true of the so-called "emerging market" private brands, as it is the case with Serbia.

Cuadernos de Gestión , 2011,
Abstract: Each tourist destination has a brand the consumer can choose at the moment of travelling. This work analyzes, through a causal model empirically tested for the case of Mundo Maya-México, the paper that reputation, emotions and trust play in the consumer's intention to go to a tourist destination. A theoretical frame is developed using contributions of the signalling theory, emotions theories and relationship marketing. A face-to-face survey was carried out with consumers in travel agencies. Results confirm most of the proposed hypotheses and show interesting results: a reputation of a good management and high awareness of the tourist destination and consumer pleasure and trust in the destination reveal as antecedents of consumer intention to go to a certain tourist destination.
