Public Policy: Affirmative Action, Social Equity, And Employment Patterns In Michigan's Construction Industry 1966-1997, Henry Joseph Bowers Jun 2000

Public Policy: Affirmative Action, Social Equity, And Employment Patterns In Michigan's Construction Industry 1966-1997, Henry Joseph Bowers

Dissertations

Affirmative action public policy did not experience much debate when it was put in place during the late 1960’s. However, the debate is occurring in the 1990s. Its merits are being weighed and there are movements locally to eliminate affirmative action policy.

The Michigan construction industry is the focus of this study. This study examined not only these employment outcome benefits, but also outlines the outcome benefit trends over thirty-one years for national employment and employment in the state of Michigan with an emphasis on the construction industry. Details regarding white-collar and blue-collar occupational grouping trends as well as ...

An Analysis Of The Socio-Economic Impact Of Casino Gaming In Mesquite, Nevada, And Its Implications For Public Policy, Janice K. Hetfeld May 2000

An Analysis Of The Socio-Economic Impact Of Casino Gaming In Mesquite, Nevada, And Its Implications For Public Policy, Janice K. Hetfeld

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

This study is a preliminary analysis of the socio-economic impact of casino gaming in Mesquite, Nevada. Mesquite is being studied from this perspective in order to provide policymakers with information that will aid in the determination of public policy relevant to and in conjunction with casino gaming activity. A combination of site visits to the area and interviews with casino executive personnel and relevant law enforcement was conducted for the purposes of gathering information for this study. Three police departments (Mesquite, Nevada, Cedar City, Utah and St. George, Utah) were interviewed to determine the crime rate in jurisdiction. Relevant data ...

Konzepte Der Mensch-Computer-Kommunikation In Den 1960er Jahren: J. C. R. Licklider, Douglas Engelbart Und Der Computer Als IntelligenzverstäRker, Michael Friedewald Jan 2000

Konzepte Der Mensch-Computer-Kommunikation In Den 1960er Jahren: J. C. R. Licklider, Douglas Engelbart Und Der Computer Als IntelligenzverstäRker, Michael Friedewald

Michael Friedewald

In the history of data processing and computer science the early 1960s were a phase of fundamental decisions. Standards in computer architecture and hardware that are still valid today were established to a large extent. The period of prototypes was finally over. Driven by the military needs in the cold war computers had become industrially manufac- tured products.

At the same time a profound discussion about the nature of the computer arose. On the one side were those arguing that the computer was a means for mechanization and automation of mental activities. For the advocates of this direction the human ...


Nutzeranforderungen Und Zukünftige Endgeräte Für Online-Dienste, Michael Friedewald, Castulus Kolo Jan 2000

Nutzeranforderungen Und Zukünftige Endgeräte Für Online-Dienste, Michael Friedewald, Castulus Kolo

Michael Friedewald

Für die Akzeptanz netzbasierter Mediendienste ist die technische Weiterentwicklung der Mensch-Maschine-Schnittstelle von großer Bedeutung. Das Fraunhofer-Institut für Systemtechnik und Innovationsforschung (ISI) in Karlsruhe hat Experten um eine Einschätzung verschiedener Akzeptanzfaktoren, der zukünftigen Entwicklung des Mediennutzungsverhaltens, der Versorgungswege und Endgeräteausstattung sowie der Marktentwicklung gebeten. Im Gegensatz zu weitverbreiteten technophilen Möglichkeitsszenarien werden auf dieser Basis Perspektiven aufgezeigt, die angesichts heutiger Wünsche der Nutzer an die Technikgestaltung und der technischen Möglichkeiten realistisch erscheinen.


Die Geistigen Und Technischen Wurzeln Des Personal Computers, Michael Friedewald Jan 2000

Die Geistigen Und Technischen Wurzeln Des Personal Computers, Michael Friedewald

Michael Friedewald

Personal Computer sind aus der heutigen Arbeitswelt nicht wegzudenken und haben längst ihren festen Platz als privates Kommunikationsmedium. Die historische Analyse zeigt, dass die Ent-wicklung des interaktiven Computers von 1945 bis 1985 nicht zielgerichtet erfolgte. Der heu- tige Stand der Technik ist vielmehr Schlusspunkt einer eher zufälligen Folge lokaler Gegebenhei- ten und Umstände. Technische Neuerungen, wie der Digitalcomputer und die Mikrochips, aber auch theoretische Konzepte (Kybernetik, Kognitive Psychologie) und Visionen trieben die Ent- wicklung voran. Entscheidend für den Durchbruch war das Zusammentreffen akademischer und anwendungsorientierter Forschung.

On The Ellison–Glaeser Geographic Concentration Index, Edward J. Feser Jan 2000

On The Ellison–Glaeser Geographic Concentration Index, Edward J. Feser

Edward J Feser

I use confidential employment data to investigate the empirical properties of a recent industry geographic concentration index (and related index of industry co-agglomeration) proposed by Ellison and Glaeser (1997). The results show that Ellison and Glaeser’s theoretical finding that their concentration measures are robust to differences in the level of spatial aggregation in the underlying employment data does not generally hold in practice. This implies that sensitivity testing for alternative spatial units should accompany any analysis with the concentration measures.


The Role Of Civil Affairs In Mine Action, Cisr Jan 2000

The Role Of Civil Affairs In Mine Action, Cisr

CISR Studies and Reports

The landmine threat to innocent civilians around the world is personally tragic, but it also represents a massive challenge to the development and infrastructure of nations at risk. Landmines have recently been used to target civilian populations and refugees, creating crisis situations regarding agriculture, indirect health consequences, and developmental choices.

Mine action is a series of activities which, taken together, attempt to ameliorate the effects of landmines. Mine action components include landmine clearance, mine awareness, and victim assistance and support activities. These diverse, and sometimes unrelated, operations are undertaken by numerous organizations, which are not typically under the control of ...

Globalization And The Design Of International Institutions, Cary Coglianese Jan 2000

Globalization And The Design Of International Institutions, Cary Coglianese

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

In an increasingly globalized world, international rules and organizations have grown ever more crucial to the resolution of major economic and social concerns. How can leaders design international institutions that will effectively solve global regulatory problems? This paper confronts this question by presenting three major types of global problems, distinguishing six main categories of institutional forms that can be used to address these problems, and showing how the effectiveness of international institutions depends on achieving “form-problem” fit. Complicating that fit will be the tendency of nation states to prefer institutional forms that do little to constrain their sovereignty. Yet the ...

Michael P. Johnson

The articles in this volume are from the Housing and Sustainable Community Development Track of the Twenty-Eighth National Meeting of the Conference of Minority Public Administrators (COMPA). They represent COMPA’s enhanced role in supporting academics and practitioners interested in housing and sustainable community development. These articles span the subject areas of urban revitalization (Herrington 2000), residential and housing concentration (Foster 2000), financial institution practices (Rhodes and White 2000, Ejigiri 2000), community socioeconomic characteristics (Martin 2000), homeownership (Baulding 2000) and subsidized housing (Johnson 2000). They address new and innovative strategies for community growth and revitalization and the need to communicate ...
