Seguridad Alimentaria En Colombia: Una Propuesta Para La Sostenibilidad De La Política De Seguridad Alimentaria Y Nutricional (Psan), Paola Andrea Méndez Cotrino

Maestría en Estudios y Gestión del Desarrollo – MEGD

Colombia ha trabajado en la construcción de políticas alimentarias que respondan a una definición holística de la Seguridad Alimentaria y de sus componentes. Aunque la vigente Política de Seguridad Alimentaria y Nutricional (PSAN) es ambiciosa, la inseguridad alimentaria persiste, las enfermedades asociadas a la alimentación son comunes entre la población colombiana y el sistema alimentario tiene problemas estructurales que impiden su óptimo funcionamiento. De forma paralela, el Desarrollo Sostenible se ha configurado como una apuesta de gobernanza del desarrollo a escala global, a través de un modelo en el que convergen actores e intereses de diversa naturaleza. Teniendo cuenta estos ...

Nociones De Legalidad/Ilegalidad En Los Actores De La Minería De Oro En Río Quito, Chocó: Una Cuestión De Río, Claudia Marcela González Gil

Maestría en Estudios y Gestión del Desarrollo – MEGD

En el conflicto socioambiental que tiene lugar actualmente en Río Quito, Chocó, en torno a la apropiación del oro, la política minera se erige como un motor de territorialización, des territorialización y re territorialización del espacio que hoy sufre múltiples impactos sociales, culturales, económicos y políticos, todos evidenciados en el estado ambiental del territorio. Ahí, donde las afectaciones se atribuyen a la minería que es realizada sin cumplir con el lleno de los requisitos legales, las nociones de legalidad/ilegalidad en los actores de la minería de oro se construyen desde su contexto social, económico y político territorial, en el ...

An Exploration: How Voluntourism Conservation Projects Coordinate With And Contribute To Conservation Efforts In Madre De Dios, Peru, Alejandrina R. Ocanas 2019 University of Montana, Missoula

An Exploration: How Voluntourism Conservation Projects Coordinate With And Contribute To Conservation Efforts In Madre De Dios, Peru, Alejandrina R. Ocanas

Graduate Student Theses, Dissertations, & Professional Papers

Mirroring trends in international tourism, alternative tourism, and ecotourism, the voluntourism industry has grown, developed and diversified significantly since 2005. Scientific attention to voluntourism has grown, too, focusing mainly on participant motivations and outcomes. However, explicit research on the outcomes and impacts voluntourism projects generate for their host communities and environments is sparse. As voluntourism becomes increasingly frequent, it is critical to design and implement projects that maximize potential for positive impacts and minimize negative impacts. This study reaches toward that goal by investigating (1) the operational characteristics of voluntourism conservation projects in Madre de Dios, Peru, a global conservation ...


Accio Empathy: Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire Through The Lens Of Cognitive Literary Studies, Elise Horning 2019 Regis University

Accio Empathy: Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire Through The Lens Of Cognitive Literary Studies, Elise Horning

All Regis University Theses

In this thesis, I examined the literariness of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (GF), calling upon research from the field of cognitive literary studies. Cognitive literary studies is a field in academia that merges scholarship from literary studies and psychology, and one of the main goals of this field is to investigate the impact that literature has on the cognitive and emotional development of the reader. A large portion of my thesis project included a close-reading analysis of the chapter “Flesh, Blood, and Bone,” as my goal was to hypothesize whether GF can be classified as literary or ...

Developing Sensory Behavioral Assays For Zebrafish Autism Model, Shannon Wagner

University Honors Program Theses

Individuals of all ages can suffer from a wide variety of symptoms and disabilities that could be diagnosed as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Due to new methods and technology, individuals are now being diagnosed in the first two years of their life, which is when the signs of ASD are initially exhibited. Individuals diagnosed with ASD share many similar disabilities and symptoms such as hyperactivity to social, visual, and auditory stimuli, as well as hyposensitivity to olfactory stimuli. Neural circuit-based alterations are widely considered as a cause for these behavioral aberrations. We have created behavioral assays using zebrafish larvae to ...

Professional Sports Teams & The Community: A Comparative Case Study Of Two Professional Basketball Teams, Hans Brase

Creative Components

All organizations are unique in their individual goals and aspirations. However, often is the case that organizations within the same industry share perspectives and overarching themes regarding how they go about achieving their perspective goals. In my paper, I will be comparing two professional basketball organizations that from first glance have very little, if anything, in similar besides the fact that they are both professional basketball teams. Through my research and personal experiences, I aim to answer the question of whether or not two professional basketball organizations are more alike in their community engagement and involvement than we would assume ...

The Multicultural Center's Role In Black Male Success At A Predominantly White Institution, Stephan Tramaine Moore 2019 student

The Multicultural Center's Role In Black Male Success At A Predominantly White Institution, Stephan Tramaine Moore

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Many scholarly works have focused on the problems that Black males face in higher education at predominantly White institutions (PWI). However, few have explored specific factors that lead to the success of Black males. This study focuses on the Multicultural Center’s role in Black male success a PWI. There are a myriad of issues that Black men face when pursuing higher education ranging from a lack of financial resources to “invisibility” in the collegial environment. These challenges are further exacerbated for Black men who are enrolled at a PWI. The Multicultural Center (MC) is among the essential modalities that ...


The Impact Of Stress On Resilience: Examining The Moderated Effects Of A Savoring Intervention, Hannah L. Newman 2019 Georgia Southern University

The Impact Of Stress On Resilience: Examining The Moderated Effects Of A Savoring Intervention, Hannah L. Newman

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Resilience is characterized by the ability to bounce back from stress (Bonanno, 2004; Ong et al., 2006; Smith et al., 2008). Research suggests resilience is a personal resource that helps individuals effectively cope with stress and provides protection from negative outcomes (Loh, Schutte, & Thorsteinsson, 2013). Exposure to stress is a prerequisite to building resilience across many different contexts (Graber et al., 2015; Hennessey & Levine, 1979; Rutter, 2006). Interestingly, a high accumulation of stress detracts from an individual’s abilities to build resilience (Ong et al., 2006; Tuguade & Frederickson, 2007). However, it is unknown what types of interventions explicitly lead to increases in resilience, especially in the face of stress. Positive emotions are associated with resilience, however the mechanisms by which positive emotions boost resilience remain unclear (Folkman, 2008; Tuguade & Frederickson, 2007). One possibility is that savoring, an individual’s ability to generate, sustain, and extend positive emotions, may play an important role in building resilience, especially after experiencing a stressor (Bryant & Veroff ...


Hometracker: A Household Information Feedback System For Food/Energy/Water Metabolism, Nichole Mackey 2019 Michigan Technological University

Hometracker: A Household Information Feedback System For Food/Energy/Water Metabolism, Nichole Mackey

Dissertations, Master's Theses and Master's Reports

The Food, Energy and Water Conscious (FEWCON) project seeks to understand how food, energy and water (FEW) as independent resources within households are connected. In the main study of the project, intervention messages that link household FEW consumption to equivalent climate consequences are pushed to the households. The goal of the FEWCON study is to determine potential intervention messages that influence household FEW consumption behavior.

A key component of the FEWCON study is a web application named HomeTracker (Household Metabolism Tracker) which collects FEW consumption data within households, then uses this data to select consumption-specific feedback to the homeowners. To ...


Figuring Disasters An Experiment On Thinking Disruptions As Methods, Gonzalo Bacigalupe 2018 University of Massachusetts Boston

Figuring Disasters An Experiment On Thinking Disruptions As Methods, Gonzalo Bacigalupe

Gonzalo Bacigalupe, EdD, MPH

In this report, we reflect on the 2-day thinkshop 'Figuring disasters: methodological speculations in exorbitant worlds' held in Valparaíso, Chile. The thinkshop aimed at discussing the possibility of inventing new genres for the figuration, representation and visualisation of distributed and processual geoclimatic disruptions. For this report, we assembled a choral essay in which each one of the participants selected one object of our visit to Messana-an informal settlement in the outskirts of Valparaíso that was severely damaged by the 2017 fires-and knit around, from and with it a reflection on the thinkshop and its questions. The report is thus fractionary ...


Difference In Attitudes Toward Crew Resource Management Based On Nationality, Christoph Zurman, Herbert O. Hoffmann, Hans-Joachim K. Ruff-Stahl 2018 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Difference In Attitudes Toward Crew Resource Management Based On Nationality, Christoph Zurman, Herbert O. Hoffmann, Hans-Joachim K. Ruff-Stahl

Hans-Joachim Ruff-Stahl

The E-3A Airborne Early Warning and Control System aircraft operates with multinational crewmembers from 15 different nations on 12 different aircrew positions. Given this non-standard cultural environment, the authors explored the differences in the attitude toward Crew Resource Management (CRM), based on nationality, and how these differences could be used as a predictor for other nationalities attitudes. The potential benefit of this study may be, that CRM methods could be developed further to either work universally, independent to national or cultural backgrounds, or be adjusted for different cultural contexts in order to be even more effective. Primary data was gathered ...

Evaluation Of A Program Designed To Increase Retention In Counselor Education: Reaching Year Two, James D. Jensen, Aida Midgett, Diana M. Doumas 2018 Boise State University

Evaluation Of A Program Designed To Increase Retention In Counselor Education: Reaching Year Two, James D. Jensen, Aida Midgett, Diana M. Doumas

The Journal of Counselor Preparation and Supervision

Student retention is a key issue in maintaining academic programs’ viability. This study evaluated a program designed to increase retention for first year Masters in Counseling students (N = 44). The program consisted of a series of activities developed to increase social integration with both students and faculty. Results of this study indicated that students in the cohort who participated in the program reported higher retention rates than students in the control cohort. Findings suggest that implementing a program designed to increase social integration may be a promising approach to retaining first year students in Counselor Education (CE) programs.
