Modern Economy (ME) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/me.2014.57075

The paper shows the situation on higher education and employment policies in Mexico based on the opinion of key persons related to the issue. Scholars, government officers and entrepreneurs participated with their opinions in a survey designed for collecting information. It is very important to know not only from the society but also from the specific policy makers that what is going vs official version in order to get some more objective information about this interesting topic. In conclusion, Mexico’s higher education policies must provide a strategic vision based on the development of a coordinated industrial policy. It is imperative to improve the balance between supply and demand for professionals, whose studies are based on policies designed to improve Mexico’s productive structure and its integration into the international economy.

Climate Action Plan for the City of La Paz, BCS, Mexico: A Tool for Public Policy in a Coastal City  [PDF]
Antonina Ivanova, Alfredo Bermudez- Contreras
Current Urban Studies (CUS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/cus.2014.23024
Abstract: As a result of its coastal location and severe water scarcity condition, the city of La Paz, Baja Cali-fornia Sur, Mexico, is extremely vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. This work presents the main findings of the Climate Change Action Plan for the City of La Paz and Neighbouring Areas (PACCLAP) including its development process and the main results of its two larger components: first, the vulnerability to climate change in the area and the adaptation measures suggested; and second, the local greenhouse gas emissions inventory and the recommended mitigation measures. In addition, the proposed actions have important impacts directly related with the Municipality Development Plan, thus making the PACCLAP a valuable instrument to support current and future decision makers in the formulation of public policies to foster a more sustainable development and improve the wellbeing of the local society.
How Climate Action at Regional Level Contributes to the Objectives of the UNFCCC: The APEC Case  [PDF]
Antonina Ivanova, Ana B. Cuevas Tello
Modern Economy (ME) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/me.2016.712131
Abstract: When APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) launched the Declaration on Climate Change, Energy Security and Clean Development in 2007 (better known as the Declaration of Sydney), environmental groups, civil society, experts and academics had recently celebrated two years of entry into force of Kyoto Protocol, which despite the slowness to achieve objectives kept hopes of real results; at the same time there were concerns that the proposal of APEC (with participation of the United States and Australia) would be a boycott of the Kyoto Protocol. This paper is arguing that the climate action within APEC is an important element to reinforce the international climate action on world level under the leadership of UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change). The analysis is focusing exclusively on common commitments assumed as members of APEC as regional body and not on the particular objectives of the member economies. Although it requires global commitment to address climate change, APEC has many resources to modify the process of global climate change significantly, this because besides emitting more than 60% of greenhouse gases (GHG), among its members are economies with a high degree of economic development (required for technological innovation), nations with the highest economic growth in recent decades (essential for poverty reduction and clean technology implementation) and international leaders with global influence (political hegemony: United States and China). Moreover, it is easier to agree among 21 economies than among the 200 nations of the world; but, if desired, any country can adhere to the objectives of APEC, since one of the characteristics of this forum is the open regionalism. This combination of elements makes APEC a force for success in the action against climate change in the world.
Polluting Emissions in the City of La Paz, Mexico: Emissions Inventory and Monitoring Data  [PDF]
Alfredo Bermudez-Contreras, Antonina Ivanova, Jose Antonio Martinez
Current Urban Studies (CUS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/cus.2017.51004
Abstract: In the City of La Paz, Mexico, there is growing concern amongst the local population due to the uncertainty about the local air quality. To address this concern, an air pollutants emissions inventory was recently carried out as a first step to better understand air quality in La Paz. The inventory considers point, area, mobile and natural sources and it includes six major air pollutants: sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), respirable suspended particulates (RSP or PM10), fine suspended particulates (FSP or PM2.5), volatile organic compounds (VOC), and carbon monoxide (CO). The reference year for the inventory is 2013. This paper presents the main results of the inventory by source category. In addition, the local power utility maintains three air quality monitoring stations in the city. Data from these stations are also presented and analysed in this paper. Electricity generation and motor vehicles are the main emissions sources. The paper highlights the importance of having in place adequate emissions control systems and operations. Some recommendations for the local authorities include a ten-year air quality and emissions reduction plan that considers measures such as the imposition of statutory emission caps on power plants, implementation of renewable energies and mandatory annual roadworthiness and exhaust pipe emissions tests for on-road vehicles.

La ventana. Revista de estudios de género , 2010,
Abstract: this paper analyzes the characteristics of migration process in baja california sur, on the pacific ocean coast of northwest mexico, where immigration has impacted the local economy through the development of tourism and intensive agriculture that target foreign markets. this has encouraged an annual rate of population growth of 10% during the last decade, feeding into employment in both formal and informal sectors. referring to the cases of women who develop beach vending activities and agricultural workers, this paper seeks to contribute to the understanding of how migration and the informal labor market intertwine.
Diagnostics of Optical Characteristics and Parameters of Gas-Discharge Plasma Based on Mercury Diiodide and Helium Mixture  [PDF]
Antonina Malinina
Open Journal of Applied Sciences (OJAppS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojapps.2015.512079
Abstract: The results of diagnostics of spectral, temporal and energy characteristics of the radiation of gas-discharge plasma in a mixture of mercury diiodide vapor with helium in the spectral range of 350 - 900 nm, and the plasma parameters in the range of reduced electric field E/N = 1 - 100 Td are presented. The plasma is created in the barrier discharge device with a cylindrical aperture. The electrodes are placed 0.2 m in length at a distance of 0.015 m. The amplitude of the pump pulse, the duration and frequency were 20 - 30 kV, 150 ns and 1 - 20 kHz, respectively. Radiation in the visible region of the spectrum of mercury monoiodide exciplex molecule is revealed. Regu larities in the optical characteristics of the plasma, depending on the partial pressures of the components of the mixture, the electron energy distribution function, mean electron energy, specific losses of discharge power on the process of dissociative excitation of mercury monoiodide (state B2Σ+1/2) molecules as well as the rate constant of dissociative excitation of mercury monoiodide molecules in working mixture depending on the given reduced electric field are established.

Kulturowe stereotypy i uprzedzenia wobec Indusów w twórczo ci Rudyarda Kiplinga
Argument : Biannual Philosophical Journal , 2012,
Abstract: The aim of this paper is to characterize and dispute the cultural stereotypes and prejudices against the Indians depicted in the writings of Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936), one of the most popular British novelists of the Victorian era. The starting point for these reflections is George Orwell’s essay in which he describes Kipling as a racist and imperialist as well as a morally insensitive and aesthetically disgusting figure. To verify this view the present author undertakes an analysis of the cultural stereotypes and prejudices embedded in the selected novels by Kipling. In reconsidering Kipling’s works, she traces the connections between his own world-view and the negative reception of Indians within the Anglo-Indian community by which he was largely shaped. The paper concludes by supporting Orwell’s criticism and demonstrating how Kipling reinforced the stereotype of an Indian, thus reflecting the cultural cliché widespread among the xenophobic and conservative Anglo-Indians in the 19th century
Public versus Private Education in Hawaii
Antonina Espiritu
Education Policy Analysis Archives , 2001,
Abstract: This study presents a time-series evidence on the timing and degree of feedback relationship between participation in education and income growth in Hawaii. Using the unrestricted vector autoregression approach and two related measures of linear dependence and feedback, the results suggest that across all educational levels, i.e., K-12 and tertiary, participation in public education could be a good predictor of income growth in Hawaii. However, decomposing the feedback effect by frequency suggests that the dominance of public education over private education in explaining the variation in income growth to be concentrated mainly on the short-run to medium-run for tertiary level and long-run to permanent effect for K-12 level. Hawaii state legislature and educators should perhaps take these results as a motivation not to ignore the problems plaguing Hawaii's public schools but should work towards greater improvement and support for public education given its predicted significant overall contribution to the Hawaiian economy.
Influence of Thioctic Acid on the Hyperinsulinemia and Ovarian Volume in Female Patients with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome  [PDF]
L. A. Ivanova
Open Journal of Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases (OJEMD) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojemd.2015.54005
Abstract: 45 female patients with polycystic ovary syndrome took thioctic acid (Thioctacid-HR), 600 mg (n = 25) or high protein diet (n = 20). Fast insulin and glucose stimulus insulin were investigated before and after 3 months taken treatment. The use of thioctic acid, 600 mg is a new effective pathogenetics therapy of polycystic ovary syndrome on influence of hyperinsulinemia, HOMA-IR index and ovary volume in female patients with polycystic ovary syndrome.
