Conflict Of Interest : Some Selected Legislative Responses At The National And State Levels, Berndt Harry Bohm Aug 1973

Conflict Of Interest : Some Selected Legislative Responses At The National And State Levels, Berndt Harry Bohm

Master's Theses

Finding solutions to conflict of interest situations is a never ending task. The basic difficulty revolves around the fact that each situation is somewhat different from another. What may be statutory relief for one situation may not be relief for another. This paper attempts to examine the possibility of statutory relief and presents certain selected examples of federal and state level legislation in the conflict of interest area. We begin with a general analysis of "gray-zone" conflict of interest and conclude with an evaluation of certain federal and state responses to conflict of interest situations.

The Effect Of Fading To Train B-D And P-Q Discrimination In Children With Specific Learning Disabilities, Janet L. Culbertson

Master's Theses

The present study was designed to assess the effective­ ness of a stimulus programming technique, fading, in teaching visual discrimination and name association to the letters b-d and p-q. The Ss were first and second grade children with diagnosed learning disabilities, who displayed a high frequency of reversal errors, particularly to the letters b-d and p-q. The study also provided a means of assessing the benefit of the fading technique in £s ability to read words and phrases, and discriminate b-d and p-q when they appear in the context of a nonsense syllable. The results indicated that the fading technique ...


An Examination Of Countervailing Forces In Canadian Foreign Policy, James F. Hettinger Aug 1973

An Examination Of Countervailing Forces In Canadian Foreign Policy, James F. Hettinger

Master's Theses

Preface

Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau pointed out in 1968 that some seventy percent of Canadian foreign policy is directly affected by the relationship of Canada and the United States. Trudeau expressed hope that ways could be found to derive maximum independence from the remaining thirty percent. At the same time, Trudeau pointed out the need to decrease the presence of the United States in Canada's foreign policy. One of the ways Trudeau proposed to meet these objectives was the expanded use of countervailing forces. Since the time of this statement, Trudeau has turned words to actions, seeking a wider ...

The following discussion will focus on conflict in education as a "social problem." Previous literature will be examined as to the theoretical and empirical importance of the concept of conflict in social research and a ...
