are made up of individual sessions, typically on a
fixed weekly schedule
. There are different formats of course in
universities: The lecture
course, where the instructor gives lectures with minimal interaction; The
, where students
and present their original written work
for discussion and critique; The colloquium or reading course, where the
instructor assigns readings
for each session which are then discussed by
the members; The tutorial course
, where one or a small number of students
work on a topic and meet with the instructor weekly for
guidance. The Directed Individual Study course
, where a student requests
to create and title an area of study for themselves which is more
concentrated and in-depth than a standard course. It is directed under a
tenured faculty member
and approved by a department chair or possibly the
dean within that specific college; the laboratory course, where most work
takes place in a laboratory
. Many courses combine these formats. Lecture
courses often include weekly discussion sections with smaller groups of
students led by the principal instructor, another instructor, or teaching
assistant. Laboratory courses often combine lectures, discussion sections,
and laboratory sessions. Students are expected to do various kinds of work
for a course: Attending course sessions. Reading and studying course
readings assigned in the course syllabus. Discussing material they have
read. Writing short and long papers
based on assigned reading and their
own library research. Completing homework or problem sets. Completing
laboratory exercises. Taking quizzes and examinations. The exact work
required depends on the discipline, the course, and the particular
instructor. Unlike most European university courses, grades are generally
determined by all of these kinds of work, not only the final examination.
Course can also mean
a part of a meal
served at one time. Course can also mean a
general line of orientation
line or route along which something travels or moves. Course can also mean
a facility consisting of a circumscribed area of land or water laid out
for a sport.

Questions to Ask When Deciding your Education Options
Will the knowledge
and information that I gain from these educational courses provide me with
the knowledge and skills to perform the work that is most needed in this
world today? Does the course prove that you understand a subject well enough
in order to use that knowledge to
? And the work that is most needed in the world today is based
upon the current knowledge and information provided by statistics and facts.
These are the jobs that will make the best improvements, make the most
positive changes and make the biggest difference
in people's lives.
Does the course make you qualified
some particular action that is needed by society? Is the course
you took just one of many courses that you need to take in order to create
a valuable skill that would benefit society?
Will the knowledge and information that I gain from these educational
courses be in line with the things that I am passionate about doing, and
also and just as important, will these educational courses provide me with
the knowledge and skills to perform work that is most needed in this world
Will the knowledge and information that I gain from these educational
courses provide me with the life skills and critical thinking skills that
every human needs, if not, then I must also include in my education the
necessary knowledge and information about life skills, critical thinking
skills and also interpersonal knowledge and intrapersonal knowledge.

knowledge is the most important for you to learn? When will be the best time to
learn this new knowledge? What are the best learning methods available to learn
this new knowledge? And you have to honestly answer why this particular
knowledge is so important, and just how will this new knowledge benefit you and

Educational methods include storytelling, discussion, teaching, training,
and directed research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance
of educators and also
learners may also educate themselves
. Education can take place in
formal or informal settings and any experience that has a formative effect
on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. The
methodology of teaching is called pedagogy. Formal education is commonly
divided formally into such stages as
primary school, secondary school and then college, university, or
apprenticeship. A right to education has been recognized by some
governments and the United Nations. In most regions, education is
compulsory up to a certain age.

Home Schooling - Pros and Cons
is the education of children at
or a variety of places other
. Home education is usually conducted by a parent, tutor,
or an online teacher. Many families use less formal ways of educating.
"Homeschooling" is the term commonly used in North America, whereas "home
education" is commonly used in the United Kingdom, Europe, and in many
Commonwealth countries. Before the introduction of
laws, most childhood education was done by families and local communities.
In many developed countries, homeschooling is a legal alternative to
public and private schools. In other nations, homeschooling remains
illegal or restricted to specific conditions, as recorded by homeschooling

Home Schooling has many advantages, like learning what you need to learn, and
when you want to learn, and not having to wake up early, not
fight over homework
, not having to run back and forth
to school, not having to pack lunches, not having to
stress over school uniforms, or whether you conform or stick to
your beliefs, and it also offers the
of being able
to travel when you want and spend more time with family.
Teachers struggle with too little resources, too much
too little time and too many rules. The system is not only
failing the students, but it's failing the teachers too. In

11: What is the true cost of taking this course? (Not the price)
12: Will employers recognize your education as being valid and
valuable? Will the Student? Will anyone else?
13: If this is a task specific course, or a specialized course
that enhances mostly one particular skill, then what are the
prerequisites? And what is the final goal of this knowledge and
skill? Career Questions
114: Will other courses be necessary after completing these
courses? What are they?
Most schools fail in these areas, whether you're in a classroom
or online. An online course is Convenient and flexible, but
those two benefits are irrelevant if the course is ineffective
in teaching the person valuable skills at a proficient level.
Schools, colleges and universities make outrageous claims on why
classroom teaching is better then online learning. But the
reasons they give mostly proves one thing, that the education
that they received was inadequate. Because
is flawed, just like the school they attended. Don't
take me wrong about schools, schools, colleges and universities
are absolutely necessary. This is about effectiveness,
efficiency and the cost. And we are not just talking about the
price, but the actual cost, True Cost is something that schools
don't teach students, because if they did, students would then
be able to accurately calculate the true cost of the school that
they are attending, and would most likely see the deficiencies
and start looking for a better school. And also, the process of
calculating actual cost would also reveal corruption, waste and
abuse, which are more
things that schools and politicians are afraid of people
When attending a school, you are most likely to be cut off from
the real world and be boxed in. But online you have a much
better chance to connect to the real world because of all the
resources, knowledge and information that you can access.
The number of home-schooled students jumped nationwide to about
between 2003 and 2012, they still represent just
over 3 percent of all students. But of course this does not
include the number of students who have to do
school work at home
. So even if you go to a school, most of
your learning will happen when you're not in school.
We still need
, but we still need to
a whole lot more, because the main reasons why
parents need to home school their children is because there are
very few good quality schools for the children to attend near
where they live.
An estimated 5 million to 7.5 million U.S. students miss nearly
a month of school each year. This is not an
problem, this is a school failing to teach a
student and then blaming it on the child for not showing up. You
are paid to transfer knowledge and information, and it's
supposed to be valuable knowledge and skills, but most of what
schools teach has little value today.
Some schools make learning more difficult on purpose, forcing
students to think that they need to try harder, when what they
really need to do is to learn how to learn more effectively and
efficiently, and then learn what knowledge, skills and
information is the most valuable to their particular needs, at
this particular moment in their life.

So the bottom line is, when comparing a school to an online school you have to first
say "Which School? Which Online Course? And then answer those 14
other key questions. Online courses have many benefits, they
allow for learning in distant or disadvantaged locations, which
would be a life saver for millions of people. But if you don't

you're screwed. That means you are forced to find a quality

course materials, such as filmed lectures, readings, and problem sets,
s provide interactive courses with user forums or social media
discussions to support community interactions among students, professors,
and teaching assistants (TAs), as well as immediate feedback to quick
quizzes and assignments. MOOCs are a recent and widely researched
development in distance education, first introduced in 2008 and emerged as
a popular mode of learning in 2012. Early MOOCs (cMOOCs) often emphasized
open-access features, such as open licensing of content, structure and
learning goals, to promote the reuse and remixing of resources. Some later
MOOCs (xMOOCs) use closed licenses for their course materials while
maintaining free access for students.
A University of Pennsylvania study

who participated in 16 of the school’s Coursera classes, for
example, found that only about half of the registrants viewed
even a single online lecture and that the average completion
rate was just 4 percent. UPenn study, a majority of those registering for the free
classes (between 70 and 80 percent) already had college degrees.
That’s about double the rate of the U.S. population at large.
And in other parts of the world—where free online college
classes were envisioned as tools of social mobility—the portion
of already-educated students was even more dramatic. Last year,
a piece of commentary that ran in The Times cited a study showing that in
countries such as Brazil, China, India, Russia, and South
Africa—where just 5 percent of residents have college
degrees—more than 80 percent of MOOC students had one.

a learning and development partnership between someone with vast
experience and someone who wants to learn. Mentorship experience and
relationship structure affect the "amount of psychosocial support, career
guidance, role modeling, and communication that occurs in the mentoring
relationships in which the protégés and mentors engaged." The person in
receipt of mentorship may be referred to as a protégé (male), a protégée

referred to as a godfather/godmother or a rabbi. "Mentoring" is a process
that always involves communication and is relationship-based, but its
precise definition is elusive, with more than 50 definitions currently in
use. One definition of the many that have been proposed, is Mentoring is a
process for the informal transmission of knowledge, social capital, and
the psychosocial support perceived by the recipient as relevant to work,
career, or professional development; mentoring entails informal
communication, usually face-to-face and during a sustained period of time,

consisting of trained supporters
(although it can be provided by peers

listening, or counseling. Peer support is also used to refer to
initiatives where colleagues, members of self-help organizations and
others meet, in person or online, as equals to give each other support on
a reciprocal basis. Peer support is distinct from other forms of social
support in that the source of support is a peer, a person who is similar
in fundamental ways to the recipient of the support; their relationship is
one of equality. A peer is in a position to offer support by virtue of
relevant experience: he or she has "been there, done that" and can relate
to others who are now in a similar situation. Trained peer support workers
such as peer support specialists and peer counselors receive special
training and are required to obtain Continuing Education Units, like

Peer-to-Peer Video Sharing
is a basic service on top of the IP
Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). Early proprietary implementations might also
run a simple SIP infrastructure, too. The GSM Association calls it "Video
Share". The peer-to-peer video sharing functionality is defined by the
Phase 1 of the GSMA Video Share service. For a more detailed description
of the full GSMA Video Share service, please see the Wikipedia entry for
Video Share. The most basic form is typically connected to a classical
circuit-switched (CS) telephone call. While talking on the CS line the
speaker can start in parallel a multimedia IMS session. The session is
normally a video stream, with audio being optional (since there is an
audio session already open on the CS domain). It is also possible to share
photos or files. Actually, P2P video sharing does not require a full IMS
implementation. It could work with a pure IETF Session Initiation Protocol
(SIP) infrastructure and simple HTTP Digest authentication. However,
mobile operators may want to use it without username/password provisioning
and the related frauds problems. One possible solution is the Early IMS
Authentication method. In the future USIM/ISIM based authentication could
be introduced, too. So the IMS adds up extra security and management
features that are normally required by a mobile operator by default.

that awards advanced academic degrees (i.e. master's and doctoral degrees)
with the general requirement that students must have earned a previous
undergraduate (bachelor's) degree with a high grade point average. A distinction is typically
made between graduate schools (where courses of study vary in the degree
to which they provide training for a particular profession) and
professional schools, which offer specialized advanced degrees in
professional fields such as medicine, nursing, business, engineering, or
law. The distinction between graduate schools and professional schools is
not absolute, as various professional schools offer graduate degrees
(e.g., some nursing schools offer a master's degree in nursing). Also,
some graduate degrees train students for a specific profession (e.g. an

question lays out a framework of required classes or class types a student
must complete to earn the minor – although the latitude the student is
given changes from college to college. Academic minors and majors differ
in that the former is subordinate to the latter - fewer courses are
required to complete a minor program of study than a major program of
study. To obtain an academic minor, a total of three years of study at a
university in a selected subject is the usual requirement. Some students
will prepare for their intended career with their major, while pursuing
personal interests with a minor, for example, majoring in civil
engineering while minoring in a foreign language or performing arts. Other
students may pursue a minor to provide specific specialization and thus
make themselves more attractive to employers. It is not infrequent for a
physics major to minor in computer science, or an engineering or economics
student to minor in mathematics. Students intending to become secondary
education teachers often major in their teaching subject area (for
example, history or chemistry) and minor in education.

To earn a Ph.D. students have to conceive of new projects. They each have
to organize the information
and material to develop a project. They must
perform the experiment, obtain data, separate out the reliable data from
the untrustworthy data, and analyze it. They then have to prepare a clear,
readable scientific paper that explains what they did, how they analyzed
the data, and what the results were. It is not important that they made or
did not make a discovery. The work should be such that it advanced the
field. They can devise a new experiment, but if that experiment takes too
many years to develop, then they can analyze the data from a different
experiment. In the end, having accomplished all these tasks, the students
have shown capability of doing scientific work under their own direction,
without needing the supervision of someone else. That is the goal of the

parents once to four times yearly. A typical report card uses a grading
scale to determine the quality of a student's school work. Throughout
North America, the grading scale consists of grades scored in classes
taken by the student. Report cards are now frequently issued in automated
form by computers and may be mailed to parents and students. Traditional
school report cards contained a section for teachers to record individual
comments about the student's work and behavior. Some automated card
systems provide for teachers' including such comments, but others limit
the report card to grades only. The term "Report card" is used to describe
any systematic listing and evaluation of something for information. For
example, many states in the United States have their education departments
issue report cards on schools' performance. Political advocacy groups will
often issue "report cards" on legislators, "grading" them based on their
stances on issues.

misrepresented (practically useless). These degrees may claim to give
credit for relevant life experience, but should not be confused with
legitimate prior learning assessment programs. They may also claim to
evaluate work history or require submission of a thesis or dissertation

frequently supported by accreditation mills, set up for the purpose of
providing an appearance of authenticity. The term may also be used pejoratively to describe an
accredited institution with low academic admission standards and a low job

refers to fraudulent or deceptive activity or representation on
the part of an employee
or prospective employee toward
an employer. It is not to be confused with employment fraud, where an
employer scams job seekers or fails to pay wages for work performed. There
are several types of job frauds that employees or potential employees
commit against employers. While some may be illegal under jurisdictional
laws, others do not violate law but may be held by the employer against
the employee or applicant.Résumé Fraud
or application fraud refers to any act that involves intentionally
providing fictitious, exaggerated, or otherwise misleading information on
application or résumé in hopes of persuading a
potential employer to hire an applicant for a job
for which they may be unqualified or less qualified than other applicants.
Depending on the nature of the offense, the type of job
, and the jurisdiction where it occurs, such an act may or may not be a
violation of criminal law. In any case, knowingly providing inaccurate
information to an employer or potential employer, if discovered by the
employer, is almost always grounds for immediate dismissal from the job or
else denial of that job

means to give someone permission
or to give official authorized approval to act, and to have the document
record of that permission. A license may be granted by a party ("licensor") to another
party ("licensee") as an element of an agreement between those parties. A
shorthand definition of a license is "an authorization (by the

. There exists a distinction between the concepts of
freedom and license. The former deals with the
rights of the individual
latter covers the expressed
(or lack thereof) for more than one individual to engage in
an activity. As a result, freedoms usually include rights which are
usually recognized (often, not always, in an unconditional manner) by the
government (and access to which is theoretically enforced against any and
all interferences). Licenses, on the other hand, are distributed to
individuals who make use of a specific item, expressing the permission to
use the item or service under specified, conditional terms and boundaries
is a form of government
license to pursue a particular profession or
compensation. Professions that can have a large negative effect on
individuals, like physicians and lawyers, require occupational licenses in
most developed countries, but many jurisdictions also require licenses for
professions without that possibility, like plumbers, taxi drivers, and
electricians. Licensing creates a regulatory barrier to entry into
licensed occupations, and this results in higher income for those with
licenses and usually higher costs for consumers. Licensing advocates argue
that it protects the public interest by keeping incompetent and
unscrupulous individuals from working with the public. However, there is

purchased a surety bond
. A surety bond represents an agreement between
three parties: The Principal – The principal is the purchaser of the bond;
the company that will be providing its services to others. The Obligee –
The obligee is the party that requires the bond before permitting the
principal to do business, usually a state or municipal institution. The
Surety – The surety is the insurance company that
issues the bond. Surety bonds protect the third-party that is
hiring a business from any possible losses that would result from
incomplete work, damage, theft, or other failures of the hired company. If
damages do occur, the third party can file a claim and receive
compensation for these losses from the surety, which would then have to be
repaid by the principal. Generally, there are two types of surety bonds:
contract bonds and commercial bonds. Commercial bonds are required for
businesses that want to work on projects with a government or municipal
entity. They protect public institutions from losses potentially suffered
due to the bonded business’ inability to properly follow applicable laws,
rules, or regulations. The surety provider will pay the claim on the bond
when the principal is unable to resolve the issue independently. The
principal then has to repay the surety company. The second main type of
surety bond for businesses is called a contract bond. Contract bonds are
also called “construction surety bonds” since these types of bonds are
usually required in the construction industry. However, they apply to
other industries as well. The most common contract bonds are: Performance
Bond – This bond ensures that the business will carry out their services
in full, in accordance with the agreement made between them and the hiring
party. Payment Bond – This bond ensures that employees, subcontractors,
and suppliers are protected from non-payment or late payment. Bid Bond –
Bid bonds guarantee to the hiring party that the bidder will take on the
job if selected. Ancillary bonds – These bonds work in conjunction with
performance bonds to ensure that all contract requirements are met,
excluding performance and payment requirements.

that can protect businesses from a variety of
risks, but keep in mind that not every business needs every type of
insurance. In the context of a business claiming to be licensed, bonded,

most traditional insurance policies that just about every business needs,
such as workers comp and general liability insurance policies. What
Additional Insurance Do You Need? No business is exactly the same, so
naturally, every business tends to have a different set of needs when it

Brain Drain - Have Education Will Travel
Human Capital Flight
refers to the
emigration of individuals

can occur when
scientists, engineers, or other intellectual elites migrate to a more
developed country to learn in its universities, perform research, or gain
working experience in areas where education and employment opportunities
are limited in their home country. These professionals then return to
their home country after several years of experience to start a related
business, teach in a university, or work for a multi-national in their
home country. Their return is this "Reverse Brain
". The occurrence of reverse brain drain mostly depends on the
state of the country's development, and also strategies and planning over
a long period of time to reverse the migration. Countries that are
attractive to returning intelligentsia will naturally develop migration
policies to attract foreign academics, professionals and executives. This
would also require these countries to develop an environment which will
provide rewarding opportunities for those who have attained the knowledge
and skills from overseas. In the past, many of the immigrants from
developing countries chose to work and live permanently in developed
countries; however, the recent economic growth that has been occurring
back in their home countries—and the difficulty of attaining long-term
work visas—has caused many of the immigrants to return home. The net benefits of human capital
flight for the receiving country are sometimes referred to as a "brain
" whereas the net costs for the sending country are sometimes referred
to as a "brain drain
". In occupations that experience a surplus of
graduates, immigration of foreign-trained professionals can aggravate the
underemployment of domestic graduates. Research shows that there are
significant economic benefits of human capital flight both for the
migrants themselves and those who remain in the country of origin. It has
been found that emigration of skilled individuals to the developed world
contributes to greater education and innovation in the developing world.
Research also suggests that emigration, remittances and return migration
can have a positive impact on democratization and the quality
political institutions in the country of origin.
Reverse Brain Drain
is a form of brain drain where human capital moves
in reverse from a more developed country to a less developed country that
is developing rapidly. These migrants may accumulate savings, also known
, and develop skills overseas that can be used in their home
country. Over Qualified
When the worlds best scientists and best engineers are
lured into by high paying jobs that do more harm than good, then we are
wasting our brain power on the love of money. This brain drain is killing
our potential. This ignorant practice is not part of our

Elective Courses - Required Courses

optional subjects or courses
in a curriculum, as opposed to a

courses (sometimes called "core

essential for an academic degree

more specialized. Elective courses usually have fewer students
than the required courses. Are schools discouraging

normal curriculum of school or university education, performed by
students. Extracurricular activities exist for all students. Such
activities are generally voluntary as opposed to mandatory, social,

staff direct these activities under faculty sponsorship, although
student-led initiatives, such as independent newspapers, are very common.

Typically, North American universities require
students to achieve both
Understanding of knowledge
across disciplines and the depth
of knowledge in a particular chosen subject area, known as a major. Thus,
students of the Arts or Humanities are required to take some science
courses, and vice versa. Normally, students are free to choose their
particular electives from among a wide range of courses offered by their
university, as long as the students possess the prerequisite knowledge to
understand the subject matter being taught. An English major, for example,
might also study one or two years of chemistry, biology or physics as well
as mathematics and a foreign language.
Simultaneous Subject Teaching
An elective represents a unique opportunity for medical
students, allowing them to experience healthcare in a setting
unfamiliar to that in which they are accustomed to studying, and
also provides the opportunity for medical students to develop
their skills by observing and participating in healthcare
overseas. Classically, students embark on elective placements
abroad, often in the developing world, or other countries where
scientific, social, economic or cultural standards differ from
those found in the country where the student's medical school is
situated. However, as electives can be expensive, some students
opt for elective placements in the same country as their
university. Aside from providing experience of differing
practices, electives also allow students to encounter medical
conditions they are less used to seeing at home. In addition,
students often retrospectively describe how their placements
broadened their horizons with regards to the social issues
affecting healthcare in developing countries.
Elective in medical
is a placement undertaken as part of a
medical degree. The content and setting of the placement are largely
decided by the student undertaking it, hence the name. Elective placements
are not exclusive to medical degrees; many other degree programs within
the field of healthcare also incorporate electives (such as nursing,
dentistry and physiotherapy) and the format is often the same.

Higher education, or going to college or to a university is not
a waste of time
, because there are many benefits that come
from continuing your education. Studies have shown that college
graduates are healthier and are less likely to get divorced.
College graduates also earn more money and have more job
opportunities. But of course this is not say that college
graduates do good things with the money they earn, or don't
earn, or does it say that the jobs they performed actually made
a difference in the world, because to many graduates add to the
slow decline of our species
, and they also do more harm then
good to our world. And they don't even know this because they had an
inadequate education. When you ask a college student why they want to go
to college, most of them answer to make money and to get a good job. But
what students should be saying is that the main reason to go to college is
to make improvements to the world, and to make a difference. Too many
Colleges and Universities make outrageous claims about what kind of
benefits students will get, but once you ask them exactly how they will
accomplish some of those claims, you will find out they have no idea.
Going to College Does Not a Guarantee a Job or Higher
Most kids give the same reason for going to college
, which is to
make money. That means they proved one thing, that they were
ignorant before they even started college. Money is not a
reason, making a difference in the world is a reason. So how do
you plan to improve the world? Will the knowledge and skills
that you're seeking provide you with the tools to achieve your
goals? If the reason is to get a better job, then will the job you get
make a difference in the world? If the reason is to have more
opportunities, then what opportunities are you seeking that are
proven to make a difference?

is a fraudulent marketing technique to

curriculum does this knowledge come from? And how do you test
for these skills? Schools are lying. I guess that's part of the

prepared for the challenges of life, and have the ability to solve every
problem on the planet. Money is just a tool, it does not calculate the
true value of the knowledge and skills being taught. And of course schools

Return on Investment
is a principles-based method for measuring
extra-financial value (such as environmental or social value not currently
reflected or involved in conventional financial accounts). It can be used
by any entity to evaluate impact on stakeholders, identify ways to improve
performance, and enhance the performance of investments.
There are seven principles of SROI
Involve stakeholders (i.e. everyone who has a 'stake' or an interest in
the subject of the SROI). Inform what gets measured and how this is
measured and valued in an account of social value by involving
stakeholders. 2. Understand what changes (for those stakeholders).
Articulate how change is created and evaluate this through evidence
gathered, recognizing positive and negative changes as well as those that
are intended and unintended. 3. Value what matters (also known as the 'monetisation
principle' – see below). Making decisions about allocating resources
between different options needs to recognize the values of stakeholders.
Value refers to the relative importance of different outcomes. It is
informed by stakeholders' preferences. 4. Only include what is material.
Determine what information and evidence must be included in the accounts
to give a true and fair picture, such that stakeholders can draw
reasonable conclusions about impact. 5. Do not over-claim. Only claim the
value that activities are responsible for creating. 6. Be transparent.
Demonstrate the basis on which the analysis may be considered accurate and
honest, and show that it will be reported to and discussed with
stakeholders. 7. Verify the result. Ensure appropriate independent
assurance. Proponents of SROI argue that using monetary proxies (market
prices or other monetary proxies) for social, economic and environmental
value offers several practical benefits
makes it easier to align and integrate performance management systems with
financial management systems; it aids communication with internal
stakeholders, especially those responsible for finances and resource
allocation, and with those who prefer quantitative to qualitative ways of
learning; it induces transparency since it precipitates the clarification
of which values have been included and which have not been included; it
permits sensitivity analysis to show which assumptions are more important
in that the result is more affected by changes in some assumptions than
others; it helps identify the critical sources of value and so streamlines
performance management. Potential limitations
Benefits that cannot be monetised: There will be some benefits that are
important to stakeholders but which cannot be monetised. An SROI analysis
should not be restricted to one number, but seen as a framework for
exploring an organisation’s social impact, in which monetisation plays an
important but not an exclusive role. Focus on
: One of the dangers of SROI is that people may focus
on monetisation without following the rest of the process, which is
crucial to proving and improving. Moreover, an organisation must be clear
about its mission and values and understand how its activities change the
world – not only what it does but also what difference it makes. This
clarity informs stakeholder engagement. Therefore, if an organisation
seeks to monetise its impact without having considered its mission and
stakeholders, then it risks choosing inappropriate indicators; and as a
result the SROI calculations can be of limited use or even misconstrued.
Needs considerable capacity: SROI is time- and resource-intensive.[ It is
most easily used when an organization is already measuring the direct and
longer-term results of its work with people, groups, or the environment.
Some outcomes not easily associated with monetary value: Some outcomes and
impacts (for example, increased self-esteem, improved family
relationships) cannot be easily associated with a monetary value. In order
to incorporate these benefits into the SROI ratio proxies for these values
would be required. SROI analysis is a developing area and as SROI evolves
it is possible that methods of monetising more outcomes will become
available and that there will be increasing numbers of people using the
same proxies. Exaggerating the result: When participants expect SROI
greater than 100% and when the observation coverage involves a huge
project with numerous stakeholders, who genuinely believe the result was
greater by minimizing the contributions of their partner.
Sustainable Return on Investment
is a methodology for identifying and
quantifying environmental, societal, and economic impacts of investment in
projects and initiatives (e.g., factories, new product development, civil
infrastructure, efficiency and recycling programs, etc.). The goal of
S-ROI is to make risk-opportunity assessments more robust by providing new
visibility into intangible internal costs and benefits, and
economic, and environmental effects that are typically not considered in
traditional cash-oriented project planning. Because it includes
environmental impacts, S-ROI is distinct from the similarly named
methodology of Social Return on Investment (SROI).
Socially Responsible Investing
is any investment strategy which seeks
to consider both financial return and social/environmental good to bring
about social change regarded as positive by proponents. Socially
responsible investments often constitute a small percentage of total funds
invested by corporations and are riddled with obstacles. Socially
responsible investing is also known as social investment, sustainable
socially conscious, green investing or ethical investing.
is an investment strategy based on a set of clearly
defined fundamental criteria that seeks to identify companies with

management of various securities, including shareholdings, bonds, and
other assets, such as real estate, in order to meet specified investment

insurance companies, pension funds, corporations, charities, educational
establishments, or private investors, either directly via investment
contracts or, more commonly, via collective investment schemes like mutual
funds, exchange-traded funds, or REITs.
The Future of Education and Training is about
because people are the investment. Businesses invest, banks
invest, people invest, so investing is nothing new. But now we
need to invest in people, and invest in the communities where
they live and work. We can't force students to pay for education
when there is no guarantee that their education will be used
effectively, or that their education will be used to benefit
society. A college graduate should not be dependent on other
people for jobs. College graduates should instead be independent
and free to make their own decisions, decisions that are better
then the ones being made now. That is how society improves, that
is how society solves problems. We need to make improvements on
how we train and educate our work force, because the current
system is failing horribly, which is costing peoples lives, and degrading
the health and stability of our planet.

tasks, business and non-business, including parenting duties. While some
home-based entrepreneurs opt for childcare outside the home, others
integrate child rearing into their work day and workspace. The latter are
considered work-at-home parents. Many WAHPs start home-based businesses in
order to care for their children while still creating income. The desire
to care for one's own children, the incompatibility of a 9-to-5 work day
with school hours or sick days, and the expense of childcare prompt many
parents to change or leave their jobs in the workforce to be available to
their children. Many WAHPs build a business schedule that can be
integrated with their parenting duties.
in healthcare is defined as a
health worker who performs functions related to health care delivery and
is trained in some way in the context of an intervention, but who has not
received a formal professional or paraprofessional certificate or tertiary
education degree. Other terms for lay health workers include community
health workers and village health workers. Trained traditional birth
attendants are also regarded as lay health workers. A lay worker can also
be a person who works in a religious organization but is not a member of
the formal clergy.
is the part of any economy that is
monitored by any form of government. Although the informal sector makes up
a significant portion of the economies in developing countries, it is
sometimes stigmatized as troublesome and unmanageable. However, the
informal sector provides critical economic opportunities for the poor and
has been expanding rapidly since the 1960s. Integrating the informal
economy into the formal sector is an important policy challenge. Unlike
the formal economy, activities of the informal economy are not included in
a country's gross national product (GNP) or gross domestic product (GDP).
The informal sector can be described as a grey market in labour. Other
concepts that can be characterized as informal sector can include the
black market (shadow economy, underground economy), agorism, and System D.

and that its capital costs be justified by the amount of future wages that
they will obviate. Semi-automation is an alternative to worker
displacement that combines human labour, automation, and computerization
to leverage the advantages of both man and machine. Although nearly any
work can potentially have skill and intelligence applied to it, many jobs
that mostly comprise manual labour—such as fruit and vegetable picking,
manual materials handling (for example, shelf stocking), manual digging,
or manual assembly of parts—often may be done successfully (if not
masterfully) by unskilled or semiskilled workers. Thus there is a partial
but significant correlation between manual labour and unskilled or
semiskilled workers. Based on economic and social conflict of interest,
people may often distort that partial correlation into an exaggeration
that equates manual labour with lack of skill; with lack of any potential
to apply skill (to a task) or to develop skill (in a worker); and with low
social class. Throughout human existence the latter has involved a
spectrum of variants, from slavery (with stigmatisation of the slaves as
"subhuman"), to caste or caste-like systems, to subtler forms of
inequality. Economic competition often results in businesses trying to buy
labour at the lowest possible cost (for example, through offshoring or by
employing foreign workers) or to obviate it entirely (through
mechanisation and automation).Roll Up your

Jobs that make a Difference
Right to Work
is the concept that people have a human right to work,
or engage in productive employment, and may not be prevented from doing
so. The right to work is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human
Rights and recognized in international human rights law through its
inclusion in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural
Rights, where the right to work emphasizes economic, social and cultural
are both legal rights and human rights relating to labor
relations between workers and employers. These rights are codified in
national and international labor and employment law. In general, these
rights influence working conditions in relations of employment. One of the
most prominent is the right to freedom of association, otherwise known as
the right to organize. Workers organized in trade unions exercise the
right to collective bargaining to improve working conditions.
is the philosophy that all types of jobs are respected equally,
and no occupation is considered superior and none of the jobs should be
discriminated on any basis. Regardless of whether one's occupation
involves physical work or mental labour, it is held that the job deserves
respect. Social reformers such as Basava and his contemporary Sharanas, as
well as Mahatma Gandhi, were prominent advocates of the dignity of labour.
Pay for Equal Work
is the concept of labour rights that individuals in
the same workplace be given equal pay. It is most commonly used in the
context of sexual discrimination, in relation to the gender pay gap. Equal
pay relates to the full range of payments and benefits, including basic
pay, non-salary payments, bonuses and allowances. Some countries have
moved faster than others in addressing equal pay.
Exploitation of Labor
refers to social relations where an "actor or
character of actors uses others for their own end because of a
fundamentally asymmetric power relationship between them". When speaking
about exploitation there is a direct affiliation with consumption in
social theory. Traditionally, this would label exploitation as unfairly
taking advantage of another person because of his or her inferior
position, giving the exploiter

. If an individual
requires further education to progress within their firm that is difficult
to obtain for any reason, this can result in the occupation being
classified as a dead-end position. You know when you are in a dead end job
when the work is lacking passion or when you feel no challenge in the
daily activities of your job, which compromises job performance and
efficiency due to a lack of motivation. If the business you work for does
more harm than good or has very little value to society, that can be a
dead end job. If you feel you are being hampered by the presence of a
glass ceiling that prohibits advancement in a firm, that can be a dead end
job. Other signs of a dead end job may be not being able to visualize any
opportunities for growth in a current position. The responsibilities of
the position have not changed within the last three years. One is not
actively chosen for high-profile projects, committees, and is passed over
for a promotion or has experienced a demotion in your title. The strategic
direction of the company has changed and, in turn, one's function within
the firm has been minimized or phased out. The relationships with

Decent work is applied to both the formal and informal sector. It must
address all kind of jobs, people and families. According to the
International Labour Organization (ILO), decent work involves
opportunities for work that are productive and deliver a fair income,
security in the workplace and social protection for families, better
prospects for personal development and social integration, freedom for
people to express their concerns, organize and participate in the
decisions that affect their lives and equality of opportunity and
treatment for all women and men. The ILO is developing an agenda for the
community of work, represented by its tripartite constituents, to mobilize
their considerable resources to create those opportunities and to help
reduce and eradicate poverty The ILO Decent Work Agenda is the balanced
and integrated programmatic approach to pursue the objectives of full and
productive employment and decent work for all at global, regional,
national, sectoral and local levels. It has four pillars: standards and
rights at work, employment creation and enterprise development, social
protection and social dialogue.

Every person has a unique quality and every person has something
special to give. So when you find a service or product that the public needs,
something that people will benefit from,
the value of that service
will be very rewarding, because you're now doing
something that makes people happy. And you're not just doing the job for the
money, you're doing it because it truly benefits people, that's the perfect job.
And it doesn't stop there either, because now you can make your service even
better by making improvements and making it even more special, and thus make
people even happier. That's the perfect job, a job you can improve on.

with their low quality food then they alleviate. So yes you will have a small
paycheck, but the price of that paycheck is peoples poor health and well being,
as well as environmental damage.

We can no longer afford to be selfish in our choices, we have to do what is
right for everyone.

fighting for better jobs
that actually benefit society. So instead of
waiting for greedy ignorant people to create jobs that only degrade society, you
should educate yourself so that you can create the jobs yourself, jobs that make
a difference, jobs that actually benefit society. Don't expect other people to
solve the problems in our world,
sometimes you have to solve these problems yourself
, or solve them with the
help from other like minded people. No problem is ever to big to solve. You just
have to start. So let the questions begin.

We see jobs disappearing, but we never clearly know why? But
it's not knowing why jobs are disappearing that's important, it's knowing what

to create jobs that are counter productive

only make things worse. Avoiding and minimizing counter productive actions and
maximizing productive and sustainable actions is not only logical, but it is the
only way to ensure positive progress. If there is a better way, then do it. That

80% of people don't like the job they are in and don't like the work they do.
Schools need to be in
tune with the needs of the community. Businesses and Schools need to
be combined and work together to give people on the job training. You can do
this in almost every job sector that we have. What knowledge and skills does
someone need in order to do this particular job effectively? You can train
anyone on the job, and give them an hour or two a day to learn the necessary
knowledge and information that would help them to learn more about the work so
they can become more valuable and become more productive.
Career Choices Information
The only time you can say that you're working
is when your work matters. If you're doing something that doesn't matter, or has
no benefits to society or to the world, then you can't say that you're working.
You can only say that you're wasting time, people and resources doing something
that doesn't matter.
“Productiveness is your acceptance of
morality, your recognition of the fact that you choose to live--that productive
work is the process by which man's consciousness controls his existence, a
constant process of acquiring knowledge and shaping matter to fit one's purpose,
of translating an idea into physical form, of remaking the earth in the image of
one's values--that all work is creative work if done by a thinking mind, and no
work is creative if done by a blank who repeats in uncritical stupor a routine
he has learned from others--that your work is yours to choose, and the choice is
as wide as your mind, that nothing more is possible to you and nothing less is
human--that to cheat your way into a job bigger than your mind can handle is to
become a fear-corroded ape on borrowed motions and borrowed time, and to settle
down into a job that requires less than your mind's full capacity is to cut your
motor and sentence yourself to another kind of motion: decay--that your work is
the process of achieving your values, and to lose your ambition for values is to
lose your ambition to live--that your body is a machine, but your mind is its
driver, and you must drive as far as your mind will take you, with achievement
as the goal of your road--that the man who has no purpose is a machine that
coasts downhill at the mercy of any boulder to crash in the first chance ditch,
that the man who stifles his mind is a stalled machine slowly going to rust,
that the man who lets a leader prescribe his course is a wreck being towed to
the scrap heap, and the man who makes another man his goal is a hitchhiker no
driver should ever pick up--that your work is the purpose of your life, and you
must speed past any killer who assumes the right to stop you, that any value you
might find outside your work, any other loyalty or love, can be only travelers
you choose to share your journey and must be travelers going on their own power
in the same direction.” (Ayn

? Working hard does not say that you're doing more work or that
your work actually matters. Working smarter not harder also does not say how
valuable your work is or if it's saving time. Working smarter and being great at
what you do is something that you can calculate and prove to be the most
effective and most efficient actions that you can possibly take at this time,
which is based on your current level of knowledge. So lets see your
numbers...and let's see the comparisons to similar processes.
We can create jobs for
everyone on the planet, but some of the jobs that we currently have now
will be no longer needed. So some people will have to change jobs and do
something else for employment and income. But we have to create the jobs first
and then give people the necessary training and education that these new jobs
will require. Some of the training will be on the job training, so people can
start working as soon as they qualify. We have to remember that people will have
to change jobs, but people will not have to worry about not working because we
have so much work to do, so there will be more jobs then we will have people to
fill them. People just need to understand that a lot of jobs that are being done
now will be discontinued because they are not beneficial to society or
beneficial to the environment. But there will be millions of new jobs that will
be created. So people will need to be assisted in getting these new jobs and if
people need training then people will also need free access to the necessary
training and education that these new jobs will require. Millions of people
during WW2 took on thousands of new jobs that were needed to fight a war, well
this is a different type of war, it's a battle for our survival, it's a battle
for equality and liberty for every man, women and child on the planet. The
incentive is always there.

Too many people
and not enough Jobs is a false statement
, even though the statement has
truth in it, it does not accurately explain the situation that we are facing. We
have enough work to do, it's just that we don't have enough knowledgeable people
who know how to create the jobs that are needed that would fulfill our
in life. And you can't say that we have too many people when we
don't even know what work needs to be done. In reality, we should always have
enough people, as long as we have enough knowledgeable people who can organize
people accurately and effectively. So the only thing this world we are short of
is brain power

what is needed by society. So education needs to improve so that students

quality that can be obtained. And all these needs are short of workers, and the
people needed to organize and supervise these workers. This isn't about money,
this is about people coming together and

an improved education system that every person on the planet has access to. And
we can get there fairly quickly if we all work together.

forces that determine the direction of a person's behavior in an
organization, a person's level of effort and a person's level of

Job design ideas
: Job Simplification: The
goal of this job design approach is to standardize and specialize tasks.
This approach does not always lead to increased motivation because the
jobs can become mundane over time. Job Enlargement: The goal of this job
design approach is to combine tasks to give the employee a greater variety
of work. Job Rotation: The goal of this job design approach is to move
workers to different tasks periodically. Job Enrichment: The key to job
design employee motivation, this approach aims to enhance the actual job
by building up the employee through motivational factors. job can be
described in terms of five key job characteristics: Skill Variety - the
degree to which the job requires the use of different skills and talents.
Task Identity - the degree to which the job has contributed to a clearly
identifiable larger project. Task Significance - the degree to which the
job affects the lives or work of other people. Autonomy - the degree to
which the employee has independence, freedom and discretion in carrying
out the job. Task Feedback - the degree to which the employee is provided
with clear, specific, detailed, actionable information about the
effectiveness of his or her job performance. employee participation

both the employer and employee benefit. Implement a long-term employment

employee's perception of how a proper balance between personal time,
family care, and work are maintained with minimal conflict. Employers can
use work-life balance as a motivational technique by implementing
quality-of-work-life programs. Examples of such programs include flextime,
workplace wellness, and family support. Flexible work schedules can allow
an employee to work whenever they can as long as a certain number of hours
are worked each week and some employers allow their employees to work from
home. Sometimes employers utilize flextime schedules that allow employees
to arrive to work when they choose within specified limits. A wellness
program can involve having an exercise facility, offering counseling, or
even having programs set up to help employees lose weight or stop smoking
cigarettes. Family support programs involve help with parenting,
childcare, and some programs allow employees to leave for family purposes.
is a person's internal disposition to be concerned
with and approach positive incentives and avoid negative incentives. To
further this, an incentive is the anticipated reward or aversive event
available in the environment. While motivation can often be used as a tool
to help predict behavior, it varies greatly among individuals and must
often be combined with ability and environmental factors to actually
influence behavior and performance. Reduce input to a level they believe
better matches their level of compensation. Change or adjust the
comparative standard to which they are comparing their situation.
Cognitively adjust their perception of their inputs or the outcomes

respect. Informational Justice, or the perception that one has been given
all the information one needs in order to best perform their jobs.

is a fundamental concept in the effort to
understand and describe, both qualitatively and quantitatively, the nature
of the relationship between an organization and its employees. An "engaged
employee" is defined as one who is fully absorbed by and enthusiastic
about their work and so takes positive action to further the
organization's reputation and interests. An engaged employee has a
positive attitude towards the organization and its values. In contrast, a
disengaged employee may range from someone doing the bare minimum at work
(aka 'coasting'), up to an employee who is actively damaging the company's
work output and reputation. Drivers of engagement: Employee's personal
resources -"...it is found that the positive perceptions that individuals
hold of their own personal strength and ability allow them to be engaged
with the organization." Employee perceptions of job importance – "...an
employee's attitude toward the job's importance and the company had the
greatest impact on loyalty and customer service than all other employee
factors combined." Employee clarity of job expectations – "If expectations
are not clear and basic materials and equipment are not provided, negative
emotions such as boredom or resentment may result, and the employee may
then become focused on surviving more than thinking about how he can help
the organization succeed." Career advancement / improvement opportunities
– "Plant supervisors and managers indicated that many plant improvements
were being made outside the suggestion system, where employees initiated
changes in order to reap the bonuses generated by the subsequent cost
savings." Regular feedback and dialogue with superiors – "Feedback is the
key to giving employees a sense of where they’re going, but many
organizations are remarkably bad at giving it." Quality of working
relationships with peers, superiors, and subordinates – "...if employees'
relationship with their managers is fractured, then no amount of perks
will persuade the employees to perform at top levels. Employee engagement
is a direct reflection of how employees feel about their relationship with
the boss." Perceptions of the ethos and values of the organization –
"'Inspiration and values' is the most important of the six drivers in our
Engaged Performance model. Inspirational leadership is the ultimate perk.
In its absence, [it] is unlikely to engage employees." Effective internal
employee communications – which convey a clear description of "what's
going on". "'
is a measure of workers' contentedness with their
job, whether or not they like the job or individual aspects or facets of
jobs, such as nature of work or supervision. Job satisfaction can be
measured in cognitive (evaluative), affective (or emotional), and
behavioral components. Researchers have also noted that job satisfaction
measures vary in the extent to which they measure feelings about the job
(affective job satisfaction). or cognitions about the job (cognitive job
satisfaction). One of the most widely used definitions in organizational
research is that of Locke (1976), who defines job satisfaction as "a
pleasurable or positive emotional state resulting from the appraisal of
one's job or job experiences". Others have defined it as simply how
content an individual is with his or her job; whether he or she likes the
job or not. It is assessed at both the global level (whether or not the
individual is satisfied with the job overall), or at the facet level
(whether or not the individual is satisfied with different aspects of the
job). Spector (1997) lists 14 common facets: appreciation, communication,
coworkers, fringe benefits, Job conditions, nature of the work,
organization, personal growth, policies and procedures, promotion
opportunities, recognition, security, and supervision.
Quality of Working Life
describes a person's broader
employment-related experience. Various authors and researchers have
proposed models of quality of working life – also referred to as
– which include a wide range of factors, sometimes classified
as "motivator factors" which if present can make the job experience a
positive one, and "hygiene factors" which if lacking are more associated
with dissatisfaction. A number of rating scales have been developed aiming
to measure overall quality of working life or certain aspects thereof.
Some publications have drawn attention to the importance of QWL for both
employees and employers, and also for national economic performance.
include various types of non-wage compensation provided to
to their normal wages or salaries. In instances where an employee
exchanges (cash) wages for some other form of benefit is generally
referred to as a 'salary packaging' or 'salary exchange' arrangement. In
most countries, most kinds of employee benefits are taxable to at least
some degree. Examples of these benefits include: housing
(employer-provided or employer-paid) furnished or not, with or without
free utilities; group insurance (health, dental, life etc.); disability
income protection; retirement benefits; daycare; tuition reimbursement;
sick leave; vacation (paid and non-paid); social security; profit sharing;
employer student loan contributions; conveyance; domestic help (servants);
and other specialized benefits. The purpose of employee benefits is to
increase the economic security of staff members, and in doing so, improve
worker retention across the organization. As such, it is one component of
reward management. The term perks is often used colloquially to refer to
those benefits of a more discretionary nature. Often, perks are given to
employees who are doing notably well and/or have seniority. Common perks
are take-home vehicles, hotel stays, free refreshments, leisure activities
on work time (golf, etc.), stationery, allowances for lunch, and—when
multiple choices exist—first choice of such things as job assignments and
vacation scheduling. They may also be given first chance at job promotions
when vacancies exist.
is a legislative (especially congressional)
provision that directs approved funds to be spent on specific projects, or
that directs specific exemptions from taxes or mandated fees.
Commission as remuneration
is for services rendered or
products sold is a common way to reward sales people. Payments often are
calculated on the basis of a percentage of the goods sold, a way for firms
to solve the principal–agent problem by attempting to realign employees'
interests with those of the firm. Sales personnel are thus paid, in part
of entirely, on the basis of products or services successfully sold rather
than being paid by the hour, by attempted sales, or by any other measure.
A common form of commission sales is real estate; in the United States, a
real estate agent who successfully sells property will collect a
commission of 6% of the sale price but a realtor who makes no sales will
collect no salary or compensation whatsoever.
Worker Qualities and Job Skills
Why we work determines how well we work..
To increase job performance we need to make working fun, create
jobs that have a purpose, create jobs that provide potential.
We need to end emotional pressure, economic pressure, and

Only the most beneficial Jobs will be incentivized, or what the
. Jobs will be rated by known factors that would
bring the most value and the most benefits to society and the
Jobs that make a Difference
If incentives are used correctly,
it will be the best investment we could make. Incentives should
work like this, a person is paid for doing a particular
function, a function that benefits them, as well as, benefits
other people too, who in turn, benefits even more people, a
continuous cycle of improvements. But it needs to be a group
effort. And it has to be done on multiple levels. Not everyone
needs to be involved, just enough people so that improvements
continue to happen for as long as needed.
If we have the ability to make better decisions, then we should.
But people are not aware of better decisions, or are they aware
of their abilities. This is because people did not have a
quality education, or have the time and resources needed to
knowledge and learn new skills. But with the internet and
computer technology, we have the ability to correct the
education and also improve access to knowledge and information,
which would allow people to acquire needed skills, and learn
more about themselves and the world around them. But just
knowing that you can have an ability, does not give you the
ability. You must learn and acquire the ability. So if we give
everyone the ability to learn more, and become more
knowledgeable about their abilities, then most people will seek
out these abilities and skills, because they know that knowledge
will give them more potential, more power, more control, more
freedom, and more possibilities. This would be like a perpetual

going to college, which is to learn how to create jobs. You also
want students to learn how to manage and supervise large
projects, because the new work force will need educated managers
and trained supervisors, and not just skilled workers. knowing
that you are guaranteed a job before you start school will
increase graduation rates to over 95%. And one of the reasons
why is because that the new job wants you to succeed, they have
invested in you, and you are willing to invest the time in them

means that you are already interested in that type of work, and
not for the money, but because you like the work, your good at

Berea College in Kentucky
has paid for every enrollee’s education
using its endowment for 126 years. Tuition Is Free and Every Student Is
Given a Job. Can other schools replicate the model? Founded in 1855 by a
Presbyterian minister who was an abolitionist. It was the first
integrated, co-educational college in the South. And it has not charged
students tuition since 1892. Every student on campus works, and its labor
program is like work-study on steroids. The work includes everyday tasks
such as janitorial services, but older students are often assigned jobs
aligned to their academic program, and work on things such as web
production or managing volunteer programs. And students receive a physical
check for their labor that can go toward housing and living expenses.
Forty-five percent of graduates have no debt, and the ones who do have an
average of less than $7,000 in debt, according to Luke Hodson, the
college’s director of admissions. More than 90 percent of
students are eligible to receive the Pell Grant—often used as a proxy for
low-income enrollment. Most of those students, 70 percent to be exact, are
from Appalachia—where nearly one of every five people live below the
poverty line. And that recruiting pipeline in Appalachia produces a rather
diverse class—more than 40 percent of the student body identify as racial
minorities. Berea has a $1.2 billion endowment—which is how it can
afford to cover the tuition of every student.

protesting the use of machinery in a "fraudulent and deceitful manner" to
get around standard labour practices. Luddites feared that the time spent
learning the skills of their craft would go to waste as machines would
replace their role in the industry. It is a misconception that the
Luddites protested against the machinery itself in an attempt to halt the
progress of technology. Over time, however, the term has come to mean one
opposed to industrialization, automation, computerization, or new

Disabled Workers on the Rise - Employment Projections
Unemployment can be measured in several ways
. A person is
if they are jobless but looking for a job and available for work.
People who are neither employed nor unemployed are not in the labor force. For
example, as of July 2013, the unemployment rate in the United States was 7.4% or
12.0 million people, while the government's broader U-6 unemployment rate, which
includes the part-time underemployed was 14.3% or 22.2 million people. These
figures were calculated with a civilian labor force of approximately 155 million
people, relative to a U.S. population
of approximately 315 million people. The
record proportion of long term unemployed, continued decreasing household
income, and new federal budget cuts remained indicative of a jobless recovery.
40 Million Americans still
on Food Stamps since 2008
- ($200.00 a month on average)
14 million People now get a Disability
now get a
check from the government
. Most SSDI recipients receive between $700
and $1,700 per month (the average for 2017 is $1,171). The federal
government spends more money each year on cash payments for
former workers than it spends on food stamps and welfare combined.
Unemployment - Injuries - Retirement
A person of need gets
when asking for help from people who are paid to help them,
but when a person from a corporation or a politician steals millions of
dollars, they just call it a profit or a donation?
More than 3.8 million workers suffered from
and illnesses in 2012, which the union said is likely
underreported and could be as high as 11.4 million employees. "The cost of
these injuries and illnesses is enormous -- estimated at $250 billion to
$330 billion a year," the report said.
Social Security Disability Insurance
is a payroll tax-funded, federal
of the United States government. It is managed by the Social Security
Administration and is designed to provide income
to people who are physically restricted in their ability
to be employed because of a notable disability, usually a physical
disability. SSD can be supplied on either a temporary or permanent basis,
usually directly correlated to whether the person's disability is
temporary or permanent. People frequently confuse Social Security
Insurance (SSDI) and
Supplemental Security Income
(SSI). Unlike SSI, SSDI does not depend
on the income of the disabled individual receiving it. A legitimately
disabled person (a finding based on legal and medical justification) of
any income level can theoretically receive SSD. ("Disability" under SSDI
is measured by a different standard than under the
.) Most SSI recipients are below an
administratively-mandated income threshold, and indeed these individuals
must in fact stay below that threshold to continue receiving SSI; but this
is not the case with SSD. Informal names for SSDI include Disability
Insurance Benefits (DIB) and Title II benefits. These names come from the
chapter title of the governing section of the Social Security Act, which
came into law in August 1935. As of July 1956, after spending twenty years
bouncing around Congress, the Social Security Disability Insurance program
was put into effect.
Occupational injuries and illnesses

is any chronic ailment that occurs as a result of work
or occupational activity. It is an aspect of occupational safety and
health. An occupational disease is typically identified when it is shown
that it is more prevalent in a given body of workers than in the general
population, or in other worker populations. The first such disease to be
recognised, squamous-cell carcinoma of the scrotum, was identified in
chimney sweep boys by Sir Percival Pott in 1775. Occupational hazards that
are of a traumatic nature (such as falls by roofers) are not considered to
be occupational diseases.

is bodily damage resulting from working. The most common
organs involved are the spine, hands, the head, lungs, eyes, skeleton, and
skin. Occupational injuries can result from exposure to occupational
hazards (physical, chemical, biological, or psychosocial), such as
temperature, noise, insect or animal bites, blood-borne pathogens,
aerosols, hazardous chemicals, radiation, and occupational burnout. While
many prevention methods are set in place, injuries may still occur due to
poor ergonomics, manual handling of heavy loads, misuse or failure of
equipment, exposure to general hazards, and inadequate safety training.
is a form of insurance providing wage replacement
and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment in
exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee's right to sue his
or her employer for the tort of negligence. The trade-off between assured,
limited coverage and lack of recourse outside the worker compensation
system is known as "the compensation bargain." One of the problems that
the compensation bargain solved is the problem of employers becoming
insolvent as a result of high damage awards. The system of collective
liability was created to prevent that, and thus to ensure security of
compensation to the workers. Individual immunity is the necessary
corollary to collective liability. While plans differ among jurisdictions,
provision can be made for weekly payments in place of wages (functioning
in this case as a form of disability insurance), compensation for economic
loss (past and future), reimbursement or payment of medical and like
expenses (functioning in this case as a form of health insurance), and
benefits payable to the dependents of workers killed during employment.
General damage for pain and suffering, and punitive damages for employer
negligence, are generally not available in workers' compensation plans,
and negligence is generally not an issue in the case.
Violence and assaults
impacts women while on the job more than men, with
female workers suffering two-thirds of all such injuries, the report noted. Some
of those female workers are victims of assault by healthcare patients or
social work clients.
"Workplace violence is the second leading cause of
workplace death in the country," Seminario said. "Injuries are coming from
patients and clients. You don't have the staffing or resources" in some
institutions, such as psychiatric hospitals, to protect workers, she
added. "It's a growing issue, particularly for women."

money each year on cash payments for disabled former workers than it spends on
food stamps and welfare combined.

and Pharmaceutical Research
The unemployment rate comes from a survey where Census workers ask about
60,000 households questions about whether they are working or looking for
a job the week of May 10 to 16. One of the first questions that gets asked
is did the person do any work "for pay or profit?" There are then 45 pages
of follow up questions that come after that. One of those questions asks
if someone was "temporarily absent" from the job and why that absence
occurred. One of the responses is "other." The Bureau of Labor Statistics,
the agency that puts out the monthly jobs reports, instructed surveyors to
try to figure out if someone was absent because of the pandemic and, if
so, to classify them as on "temporary layoff," meaning they would count in
the unemployment data. But some people continued to insist they were just
"absent" from work during the pandemic, and the BLS has a policy of not
changing people's answers once they are recorded. It's how the BLS
protects against bias or data manipulation. Former staffers said it's
unusual that the BLS was not able to correct this problem faster. The only
political appointee at the BLS is the commissioner, who, Groshen said,
does not have access to the data and only sees the finalized report.
Saying that the employment rate is low is can be a lie because

There are fewer people in the workforce and there are people who are not

allows foreign workers to temporarily reside and

agricultural, industrial, or domestic labor in countries with workforce
shortages, and they return home once their contract has expired. While
migrant workers may move within a country to find labor, guest worker
programs employ workers from areas outside of the host country. Guest
workers are not considered permanent

We allow money to control our behavior, we are letting money decide

Money blinds us from knowing the consequences of our actions.
Money creates a disconnect. How spoiled and
ignorant we are. We have to stop using money as an excuse. This goes way beyond what a financial education could ever
accomplish, this is about life. And because of our inadequate
educational institutions, we will never have the right knowledge

poverty, war, crime, corruption, and so on and so on. How can we

Thesis - Dissertation - Essay - Academic Papers
is a document
submitted in support of candidature for an academic degree
or professional qualification
presenting the author's research and
findings. In some contexts, the word "thesis" or a cognate is used for
part of a bachelor's or master's course, while "Dissertation
is normally applied to a doctorate
, while in other contexts, the reverse
is true. The term graduate thesis is sometimes used to refer to both
master's theses and doctoral dissertations. Dissertations
and theses may
be considered to be Grey Literature
. The required complexity or quality of
of a thesis or dissertation can vary by country, university, or
program, and the required minimum study period may thus vary significantly
in duration. The word dissertation can at times be used to describe a
treatise without relation to obtaining an academic degree. The term thesis
is also used to refer to the general claim of an essay or similar work.
Writing Dissertations Help
is a piece of writing that gives the author's own argument
but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of an article, a
pamphlet, and a short story. Essays have traditionally been sub-classified
as formal and informal. Formal essays are characterized by "serious
purpose, dignity, logical organization, length," whereas the informal
essay is characterized by "the personal element (self-revelation,
individual tastes and experiences, confidential manner), humor, graceful
style, rambling structure, unconventionality or novelty of theme," etc.
Essays can consist of a number of elements, including: literary criticism,
of daily life,
recollections, and reflections of the author. Almost all modern essays are
written in prose
, but works in verse have been dubbed essays.
Research Paper Writing Tips
is a research paper
written by students over an academic term, accounting
for a large part of a grade. Term papers are generally intended to
describe an event, a concept, or argue a point. A term paper is a written
original work discussing a topic in detail, usually several typed pages in
length and is often due at the end of a semester.
A study at the University of Indiana found that “as many as
of academic papers are never read by anyone other than their authors,
referees and journal editors
.” That same study concluded that “some 90% of
papers that have been published in academic journals are never cited
(Make reference to or Referred to for proof)
That is, nine out of 10 academic papers—which both often take years to
, compile, submit, and get published, and are a major component by
which a scholar’s output is measured—contribute little to the academic
conversation. Even though the world spends
$2.3 Trillion on research to produce around 2 million research articles
, still today, about 90% of our science results are
locked away behind expensive paywalls, not widely available to the public,
companies and even many researchers themselves. This produces the biggest
bottleneck in today’s knowledge economy and society, stifling innovation
and slowing down solutions to some of the biggest challenges humanity
faces today: diseases and climate change. “Imagine how we could accelerate
innovation, stimulate economic growth and all the solutions we need to
live on a healthy and sustainable planet, if we were to open up our
science fully and allow a free flow of scientific knowledge.” On top

is a means by which academics communicate the results of
their scholarly work, establish priority for their discoveries, and build
their reputation among their peers. Authorship is a primary basis that
employers use to evaluate academic personnel for employment, promotion,
and tenure. In academic publishing, authorship of a work is claimed by
those making intellectual contributions to the completion of the research
described in the work. In simple cases, a solitary scholar carries out a
research project and writes the subsequent article or book. In many
disciplines, however, collaboration is the norm and issues of authorship
can be controversial. In these contexts, authorship can encompass
activities other than writing the article; a researcher who comes up with
an experimental design and analyzes the data may be considered an author,
even if she or he had little role in composing the text describing the
results. According to some standards, even writing the entire article
would not constitute authorship unless the writer was also involved in at
least one other phase of the project.

because researchers fear that people will steal their ideas
and cause them to not get the recognition and the compensation for their
work, which is a real concern that is understandable. We need to fix this.

Sponsored Research - Corporate Funded Research
- Government Funded
Funding of Science
is a term generally covering any funding
for scientific research, in the areas of both "hard" science and
technology and social science. The term often connotes funding obtained
through a competitive process, in which potential research projects are
evaluated and only the most promising receive funding. Such processes,
which are run by government, corporations or foundations, allocate scarce
funds. Most research funding comes from two major sources, corporations
(through research and development departments) and government (primarily
carried out through universities and specialized government agencies;
often known as research councils). Some small amounts of scientific
research are carried out (or funded) by charitable foundations, especially
in relation to developing cures for diseases such as cancer, malaria and
AIDS. According to OECD, around two-thirds of research and development in
scientific and technical fields is carried out by industries, and 20% and
10% respectively by universities and government. Bias in Research

Each year academia churns out thousands of pieces of research on
education. And for many of them, that's the end of it. They gather dust in
the university library or languish in some forgotten corner of the
Internet. A few, though, find their way into the hands of teachers,
principals and policymakers. Each year the American Educational Research
Association puts out a list of its 10 most-read articles. The most
disturbing thing about education research is that in order for the
research to be excepted, the research has to follow strict rules and
guidelines, but education itself in our schools does not follow any proven
methods or rules or guidelines, things that would prove that the school is

emotional to be a professor at ANY university. He has good
intentions but just is a weird guy that spits a lot."
"By far the most boring person I have ever heard speak in my
whole life. He did not teach me a single thing all semester, his
slides are useless as well as his lectures."
"Very odd professor, but really not as bad a teacher as everybody
else would lead you to believe. The real reason why you
shouldn't take this class is the smell. It's like he bathes with
urinal cakes. If you can't get out of his class, sit in the
"There is no hope, all hope is lost. My friend and I both dropped
this class after two classes because she thinks she knows
everything. She's rude and pushes all her beliefs upon students.
Her vain personality is ugly and despicable; her class left me
with a bad taste in my mouth. Her negativity was intolerable."
"If you can avoid him, do...at all costs. You not only come to
hate him as a teacher, but from the stories he tells you about
his past, you start to loathe him as a person."

generally seems very confused about everything. For the sake of
sanity do not take him."
"This professor is the most miserable professor I’ve ever come
across in my three years of college. This man thinks America and
college students are spiraling down the drain."
"Probably the worst teacher I've ever had. He's a math professor
and he can't even do simple arithmetic. He's basically deaf so
half the class is yelling the numbers at him until he writes the
correct one on the board."
"Very adorable old dude and he is an extremely easy professor. He
often makes mistakes and doesn't realize them. However, if you
have never taken pre-calc before then don't take him because he
assumes you understand all the subject matter."

he talks about."

life. When others have asked her to slow down, she has blatantly

agree with him. For the love of God, don't take this class."

"Very nasty professor. She seems to be mad at the world. She
needs to be fired!"
"Extremely impatient, rude. She makes you feel like a moron for
asking a question. I simply do not like her!!"
"Another Professor hiding from the real world and does not care
about interesting students in her class or willingness to teach."
"If you want to torture yourself take this class."
"He is practically blind so I don't understand how he can grade
our papers. Isn't there a mandatory retirement age at CCSU?"
"If you're reading this comment after you registered for her
class you have just made the worst decision of your CCSU
attendance. I have had plenty of professors at this school and
none are even close to how horrible she is. She is mentally
"DO NOT TAKE HIM. When asking questions about the subject, he
will response with a "What are you, stupid?" kind of answer."
"You can tell he hates his job and takes it out on his students."
"Awful professor. Worst professor I have ever met. I have never
seen a professor act so rudely and hostile. Very annoying.
Unprofessional in the classroom, rude comments directed towards
students, confusing, changes syllabus and due dates
multiple times (adding/changing assignments), disorganized, rude
in email communication. Avoid."
These comments reveal
ignorance on both sides
. But I'm sure if students explained more about
the particular difficulties and experiences that they had, and if teachers
and professors explained more about their particular teaching methods and
behaviors, we could easily make improvements in every classroom learning
environment, which would benefit everyone.
