International Terrorism:Role ,Responsibility And Operation Of Media Channles, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr Nov 2008

International Terrorism:Role ,Responsibility And Operation Of Media Channles, Ratnesh Dwivedi Mr

Ratnesh Dwivedi

"Terrorism" is a term that cannot be given a stable defintion. Or rather, it can, but to do so forstalls any attempt to examine the major feature of its relation to television in the contemporary world. As the central public arena for organising ways of picturing and talking about social and political life, TV plays a pivotal role in the contest between competing defintions, accounts and explanations of terrorism. Which term is used in any particular context is inextricably tied to judgemements about the legitimacy of the action in question and of the political system against which it is directed ...


A Primary Human Challenge, Carroy U. Ferguson Apr 2008

A Primary Human Challenge, Carroy U. Ferguson

Carroy U "Cuf" Ferguson, Ph.D.

We may ask why, at both the individual and collective levels, it has seemed so difficult for us to choose to evolve our human games with Joy. There is no one answer for such a question, for each of us has the gift of free will. I will suggest, however, that built into our human games is what I call a primary human challenge. That primary human challenge is a dynamic tension, flowing from our creative urge for the freedom “to be” who we really are in our current physical form, and simultaneously to embrace our responsibility for our Being-ness.

“La Evolución Del Concepto “Frontera” Dentro Del Desarrollo Capitalista”, Daniel Añorve Mar 2008

“La Evolución Del Concepto “Frontera” Dentro Del Desarrollo Capitalista”, Daniel Añorve

Daniel Añorve

El presente trabajo identifica los tres grandes entendimientos que ha tenido el concepto "frontera" dentro del desarrollo capitalista: 1) La frontera territorial; 2) La frontera ideológica; 3) La frontera postmoderna o virtual. La frontera es entendida como una válvula de escape a las crisis capitalistas. Adicionalmente, representa la posibilidad de saneamiento del sistema, al reconstituir los espacios sobre los que actúa. Sin embargo, toda apertura de nuevas fronteras, trae aparejada la clausura de acuerdos económicos, sociales, culturales y últimamente de paquetes divinatorios previos. Finalmente, se argumenta que no hay límite a la expansión de las fronteras, pues el entendimiento actual ...


Unearthing The Truth: The Politics Of Exhumations In Cyprus And Spain, Iosif Kovras Jan 2008

Unearthing The Truth: The Politics Of Exhumations In Cyprus And Spain, Iosif Kovras

Iosif Kovras

Contrary to the experience of other countries with memories of clandestine violence and “missing persons”, where the mobilisation of the (civil) society towards “truth recovery” was immediate and pivotal, the societies of Cyprus and Spain remained silent for a remarkably long period of time. This article aspires to explain the reasons why both Cypriot communities and the Spanish society did not manage, until recently, to comprehensively address—not to mention resolve—the problem of “missing persons”. The recent emergence of the “politics of exhumations” in these two countries, which highlight issues related to truth recovery and collective memory, renders the ...

Research In The Biotech Age: Can Informational Privacy Compete?, Wilhelm Peekhaus Jan 2008

Research In The Biotech Age: Can Informational Privacy Compete?, Wilhelm Peekhaus

Wilhelm Peekhaus

This paper examines the privacy of personal medical information in the health research context. Arguing that biomedical research in Canada has been caught up in the government’s broader neo-liberal policy agenda that has positioned biotechnology as a strategic driver of economic growth, the author discusses the tension between informational privacy and the need for medical information for research purposes. Consideration is given to the debate about whether privacy for medical information serves or hinders the ‘public good’ in respect of medical research, and to discussions of informed consent as an element of ‘fair information practices’ designed to safeguard the ...


Personal Health Information In Canada: A Comparison Of Citizen Expectations And Legislation, Wilhelm Peekhaus Jan 2008

Personal Health Information In Canada: A Comparison Of Citizen Expectations And Legislation, Wilhelm Peekhaus

Wilhelm Peekhaus

This paper explores whether the Canadian legislative protections in place to safeguard medical privacy meet the expectations of Canadians. An overview of current governance systems designed to protect the privacy of personal health information at both the federal and provincial levels is first presented. This is followed by an empirical analysis of the results of a public opinion survey conducted to determine Canadian attitudes about medical privacy, particularly genetic privacy. The analysis highlights areas where legislation and public opinion converge and diverge.

Economics: An Introduciton To Traditonal And Progressive Views, Howard J. Sherman, E. K. Hunt, Reynold Nesiba, Phillip O'Hara, Barbara Weins-Tours Dec 2007

Economics: An Introduciton To Traditonal And Progressive Views, Howard J. Sherman, E. K. Hunt, Reynold Nesiba, Phillip O'Hara, Barbara Weins-Tours

HOWARD J SHERMAN

Thoroughly revised, expanded, and updated, this classic text offers a broader intellectual foundation than traditional principles textbooks. It introduces students to both traditional economic views and their progressive critique. The text puts the study of microeconomics, macroeconomics, and globalization into historical context. While covering the same topics as a traditional text, it also offers a richer discussion of economic history and the history of economic thought, including the ideas of Karl Marx, Thorstein Veblen, and John Maynard Keynes. This enables students to see economics as a way of understanding the world--a lens for social analysis--rather than as immutable truth or ...
