A “Fine Structure Constant” for Inertia  [PDF]
Amos Harpaz
International Journal of Astronomy and Astrophysics (IJAA) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ijaa.2013.34046

We try to find a physical source for the inertial force, which contradicts the acceleration of an object. We find that when an object is accelerated, its gravitational field curves, and the stress force created in this curved field acts on the object against the accelerating force, thus supplying part of the inertial force that contradicts the acceleration. We also find that this force includes a term which is similar to the fine structure constant used in quantum mechanics. As well, we find that this term equals unity for a black hole object. Further work is needed in order to find whether the complete inertial force can be found in this way. The experimental results that may prove this approach are still very limited.

Ghanaian Female Immigrant Entrepreneurs in Canada: Experiences, Challenges, and Coping Strategies  [PDF]
Amos Nkrumah
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2016.410005
Abstract: Immigrant women of African descent face series of injustices in the process of integrating into the host society, particularly in the labour market because they are women and minorities. The purpose of this paper is to explore the experiences, challenges, and strategies of these female immigrant entrepreneurs in Canada. Using snow-ball sampling and in-depth interview, principally these women go into entrepreneurship due to family considerations. Furthermore, there are several injustices that the women face, such as race regarding the colour of skin, and the accented manner they speak English. The study also finds that Ghanaian women entrepreneurs have developed coping strategies through the building of networks, determination, and “faceless” business transactions to overcome the inequalities, and to win and maintain clients and expand their business.
The Philosophy-Psychology Linkage  [PDF]
Amos Avny
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2018.83016
Abstract: The Essay explores two questions about the subject: a. whether exist any linkage between Philosophy and Psychology, and b. what is the nature of this linkage? Actually, the Author answers that such a linkage already exists. In fact, these two disciplines are like two sides of the same coin, they are complementary rather than competitive. For clarifying this argument the Author discusses 3 example cases, examining the whole individual-organization complex. The Essay describes Adam and Eve’s nature and curiosity, qualities that empowered them in their search for knowledge. This behavior also made them the fore-parents of all explorers, pioneers and researchers who followed them. Further, the Author indicates how wrong use of ideological declarations hurts individuals and subdues them. Finally, the Author advocates the introducing of the “Normal Distribution Method” and the “Bell type Curve” as main tools in teaching and studying Social Sciences.
Sustainability of Teachers' International Experiences: Conditions for Institutionalization of International Program Outcomes
Anatoli Rapoport
Education Research International , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/591276
Abstract: Since World War II international exchange and training programs for educators have increasingly played an important role in developing prospective consciousness and awareness of cultural diversity and global interdependence among teachers. However, international programs have always depended on extra educational factors such as political, ideological, cultural, or financial circumstances. As a result, program sustainability and proper institutionalization of program's results that are a testimony of achieved success, are both matters of concern for program developers and alumni. This paper identifies factors and contexts that facilitate sustainable development of international programs and institutionalization of their outcomes. Two cohorts of international teacher program alumni from Russia and the United States were interviewed about the impact of exchange programs on participants' status and pedagogies. The study demonstrated that respondents consider three factors, namely, motivational, administrative, and cooperative, most critical for the institutionalization of international program results.
Le go t et l’esprit de l’Exposition: les Spielmann et les Kiralfy
Michel Rapoport
Synergies Royaume-Uni et Irlande , 2009,
Abstract: Imre Kiralfy et Isidore Spielmann, tous deux issus de l’immigration juive d’Europe centrale, deviennent les ma tres de l’Exposition FrancoBritannique de 1908, symbole de l’Entente cordiale scellée en 1904. Kiralfy, fort de son expérience d’impresario et admirable homme d’affaires, avec l’exposition de Shepherd’s Bush, la White City, transforme l’esprit des expositions internationales, l’orientant vers la consommation de loisirs. Quant à Spielmann, qui a joué un r le clé dans l’organisation des expositions artistiques dans le cadre des expositions universelles et internationales, et qui est au c ur d’un réseau d’artistes et de collectionneurs, dans un esprit confrontation avec la France, il fait de la British Fine Art Section de la FrancoBritish, la vitrine de l’art britannique, le préraphaélisme étant présenté comme la force vitale de la peinture britannique d’alors et l’initiateur de l’impressionnisme. Kiralfy et Spielmann se rejoignent dans leur volonté de faire de cette exposition le lieu et le temps fort de l’exaltation de la grandeur de la Grande-Bretagne et de son Empire
The Penguin New Writing, Horizon et la France (1940-1945)
Michel Rapoport
Synergies Royaume-Uni et Irlande , 2009,
Abstract: L’entrée en guerre s’accompagne d’une mobilisation des intellectuels dont témoignent dès 1940 la naissance de nouvelles revues parmi lesquelles The Penguin New Writing de John Lehmann, dont le succès ne se dément pas durant toute la guerre, et Horizon de Cyril Connolly. La France est très présente dans ces deux revues, sous les formes les plus diverses, de la traduction de textes d’auteurs fran ais à des articles de critique en passant par des témoignages sur la situation de la France durant la guerre et à la Libération. Si les deux revues se livrent à une aimable concurrence, le contenu fran ais de The Penguin New Writing présente davantage d’homogénéité que celui d’Horizon caractérisé par son éclectisme. Mais l’une comme l’autre témoignent d’une francophilie évidente dans ces années noires et font découvrir aux Britanniques la vitalité créatrice de la France.
