How a Proactive Interventionist Can Make Strikes More Effective: Evidence from the Korean Banking Sector  [PDF]
ChungIL Choi
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2013.34051

This paper argues, through a case study of two industry-wide strikes in the Korean banking sector, that a proactive interventionist strike is more effective than a reactive pragmatist one in a union’s response to restructuring. Evidence from the two strikes shows that unions were able to achieve more successful outcomes from the strike in which they engaged proactively by an interventionist mode. In this case the unions identified opportunities, took the initiative and devised effective strategies that pre-empted the other parties before they had fully prepared their restructuring planning. Such a strategic capacity was gained from active organizational learning in unions derived from their previous strike failure.

It gives characteristics of indicators of stability, effectiveness of company activity and growth of effectiveness. It justifies a necessity to introduce an indicator of stability of growth of effectiveness of company activity, which the help of which company activity in market economy is analysed.

Abstract: During the Second World War the effectiveness and importance of the applicetionof propaganda in influencing a mess society became evident. Under the influence ofHitlet and his follower Joseph Goebbels the use of propaganda was developed intoa fine art and was systematically used to convey Nazi ideas to the uninformed masses.Nowadays this seme weapon is used by the Communists to extend their influencebeyond the borders of the Soviet Union. Propaganda may be seen as the deliberate attempt by an individual or group. toinfluence another person or group so that in a given situation the reaction of theinfluenced person will be that desired by the group. It is not always possible toinfluence everyone, as people identified as 'nuclear-personalities' have certain attitudesof long standing which they are normally not apt to surrender. The great masses,however, are 'uninformed stuff' and have no strong opinions of their own, but tendto be guided by their need to belong to a group. Hence their opinions are determinedby those of the group. It is towards reaching the group - the masses - that thepropaganda programme is directed. By means of the radio, newspapers, and othermedia certain ideas are transplanted beyond their borders. This process is usually80 ingeniously conducted that the groups influenced are not aware of it. One of thereasons why they are ceught unawares may be attributed to the fact that the propagandistconfronts them with certain ideas on nationalism or peace which are acceptedby the group. Under this cover the real motives - in this cese the Communist valuesand way of thinking - are conveyed. It is in these hidden and underlying motivesthat the real threat to any state lies, as the bulk of its society is gradually indoctrinatedto come to accept certain Communistic principles, giving the Communist Governmentthe opportunity to extend its sphere of influence and mainstay over another govemment.In this fashion countries are subjugated without any wars being fought.

Psychology (PSYCH) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2011.29136
Abstract: The study investigated the nature of classroom misbehaviours among secondary school students in Ondo State, Nigeria. It also determined the effectiveness of the teachers and the strategies adopted by the teachers to manage classroom misbehaviours. Furthermore, it established the relationship between teachers’ effectiveness and management of classroom misbehavior with a view to maintaining discipline in schools. The study adopted descriptive survey design. The population comprised the teachers and school administrators in Ondo State. The sample consisted of 420 teachers and 180 school administrators selected randomly from 10 secondary schools selected by stratified sampling technique using location of schools and ownerships of schools as strata. Two instruments namely “Questionnaire on Management of Classroom Misbehaviour” (QMCM) and “Teacher Effectiveness Scale” (TES) were used to elicit information from the students. QMCM was made up of three sections. Section A consisted of items on socio-demographic variables such as sex, location of schools and ownership of schools. Section B requested the teachers to indicate the types of misbehavior that take place in the classroom and their frequencies of occurrence. Section C comprises strategies used by teachers to manage classroom misbehaviours. TES was the ratings of teachers’ effectiveness as done by the school administrators. Results showed that the following misbehaviours occurred frequently in the classrooms: talking while was teaching (75.4%) and fighting (90.9%). The strategies adopted by teachers included giving advice (90.5) and referring the students to the school counsellors (88.6%). The teachers were rated effective in attending classes punctually (81.3%) and in communicating clearly with the students (96.0%). Furthermore, there existed a significant relationship between teachers’ effectiveness and management of classroom misbehavior, r = 0.0525 which is significant at .05 level.

Hua Guo, Yuansheng Jiang
Technology and Investment (TI) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ti.2012.33027
Abstract: The Food and Agriculture Organization of United Nations (UNFAO) adopted two assistance approaches which named the Direct Inputs Distribution (DID) and Agricultural Inputs Voucher (AIV) to assist the disaster affected farmers after the Wenchuan massive earthquake in Sichuan, China (Jiang, Guo, 2010) [1]. After carrying out 1) the beneficiaries’ field survey targeted on the earthquake affected households including both assistance recipients and non-recipients, and 2) the focus group interview of the administrative personnel in FAO Chengdu office, Department of Agriculture (DoA), Bureau of Agriculture (BoA), dealers participated in the program, the paper analyzed the total cost and effectiveness of those two approaches, by comparing the mean E:C ratios, which were 1.564 and 1.206 respectively. The results indicated that the AIV programs were more effective in assisting agriculture rehabilitation as compared to the DID programs.
Assessment of the Effectiveness of Adjustment Programs at the Core of the Greek Economy  [PDF]
Aggelos Kotios, George Galanos, Thomas Poufinas
Modern Economy (ME) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/me.2018.99098
Abstract: Despite the seven-year implementation of three adjustment programs to address the sovereign debt crisis, the Greek economy is still in a prolonged recession and faces problems of competitiveness, political stability and social cohesion. At the same time, the fiscal adjustment policy did not solve the original problem of public debt. On the contrary, as recent evidence shows, the country’s ability to service its debt has deteriorated. The causes of the crisis and the failure of the selected economic stabilization policies are a multidimensional and interrelated complex. The Greek economy has supported its growth in recent decades mainly in domestic consumption, with little presence in areas with high added value and extrovert features, focusing mainly on traditional business sectors with limited innovation characteristics. Ιn this study we will try on reasonable arguments but also with a series of statistical data and indicators from sources such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the World Bank, the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the Greek authorities to analyze the course of the Greek economy, evaluate the results of the selected policies and to formulate appropriate policy proposals.

Creative Education (CE) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2019.101007
Abstract: The present study aims at determining the effect of learning chemical reactions, more specifically, how light and photosynthesis with and without drama affected 180 10th?grade (boys and girls) students’ achievements in Israeli middle schools. Exams were prepared and distributed to the students before each topic was taught in the relevant class (pre-test). Then the topic was taught through drama and by means of conventional teaching, after which the exam was administered once again as a post-test. The findings showed that learning chemistry with drama contributes both to students’ achievements and to their interest in studying chemistry, and it positively affects students’ achievements in tenth grade.

South African Journal of Industrial Psychology , 2007, DOI: 10.4102/sajip.v33i1.254
Abstract: This study examined the relationship between trade union commitment and union participation among blue-collar workers in South Africa. Survey questionnaires were completed by 93 participants (response rate = 62 %). Findings are consistent with previous research and showed that after controlling for demographic factors, 43% of the variance in participation can be explained by union commitment. In this study, Black participants displayed significantly higher levels of commitment and participation than their Coloured counterparts did.
An Exploration of the Predictors of Relationship Status with a Caveat on Interpretation  [PDF]
Antony Mastroniani
Open Journal of Applied Sciences (OJAppS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojapps.2017.78031
Abstract: Using the Puerto Rican Maternal and Infant Health Study dataset (PRMIHS), the predictors of relationship status were examined via probit regression. The strongest predictors of relationship status found were interactions between bi-nary variables for the age that a respondent first had sexual intercourse and for the age that a respondent first entered into a union (N = 1452). This paper con-cludes by arguing that the results provide support for viewing union status as being primarily dependent on the people involved in the union instead of being primarily dependent on factors external to the people themselves.
