Hong Kong Happiness Index 2008 香港快樂指數 2008, Lok Sang Ho

Prof. HO Lok-sang

Surprisingly Hong Kong people in 2008 apparently are happier compared with the previous year, despite the Financial Market Tsunami. The overall happiness index, according to a survey conducted by the Lingnan University's Centre for Public Policy Studies (CPPS) over 20-24 October 2008 via randomized phone calls, rose to 69.3 in 2008. This is as compared to 67.2 in 2007.

The research team successfully interviewed 823 Hong Kong residents aged 21 or above. On a scale of 0 to 100, an index above 50 suggests that people are happy. An index below 50 suggests unhappiness.

West Africa & The Rise Of Asante: Rivers Of (Black) Gold And The Proto-Globalization Of Labor, Jon D. Carlson Jul 2011

West Africa & The Rise Of Asante: Rivers Of (Black) Gold And The Proto-Globalization Of Labor, Jon D. Carlson

Jon D. Carlson

This paper examines the concept of the “external arena” and the role of the “information network” in the expansion of the world-system and absorption of new regions. I reference research on nested networks of interaction, and echo criticisms that the impact of myth and misinformation has been underappreciated as an element of incorporation. Alteration occurs well-prior to the point at which most world-systems literature considers a region incorporated.

West Africa offers a rare case of external state creation and resistance to European systemic expansion ...

El Voto De Los Hispanos En Las Elecciones Estadounidenses (2000-2004). Mitos Y Realidades Del Latino Power, Fernando Barrientos Del Monte

Fernando Barrientos Del Monte

Los hispanos son la comunidad racial más grande en los Estados Unidos de América (EUA), su peso demográfico es atractivo para los dos grandes partidos en dicho país, el Republicano y el Demócrata. Ambos partidos se disputaron en las elecciones presidenciales de 2000 y 2004 (y lo hicieron en 2006) el voto de los hispanos con diversas promesas, tales como la regularización migratoria, ampliación de servicios y políticas específicas para las comunidades latinas más importantes. Los hispanos son la comunidad que tiene los más altos índices de pobreza en los EUA, por lo que sus demandas tienen un eco muy ...
