CHAPTER 1 The Price Of Inequality Latar

Keserakahan akan kekuasaan yang mulai tak terkendali digambarkan sebagai ego yang menuliskan batu nisan bagi impian kejayaan Amerika Seriakat. Terjadinya kegagalan pasar di Amerika Serikat membawa pada sistem ekonomi yang buruk karena cenderung terperangkap uang. Nilai- nilai demokrasi mulai runtuh dan terjadi degradasi nilai- nilai moral yang disebabkan oleh masyarakat dan sistem. Kegagalan sistem politik dan pemerintah diperlihatkan pada tidak berhasilnya pemerintah menangkap apa yang diinginkan oleh para kritikus. Ketidakadilan yang disebabkan oleh pasar sendiri kemudian dapat dilihat pada terciptanya kelas- kelas sosial di Amerika Serikat, Keberadaan 1% penduduk yang memiliki tempat tinggal terbaik, pendidikan terbaik, dokter terbaik dan gaya hidup terbaik sama sekali berkebalikan dengan kondisi 99 % penduduk Amerika Serikat lainnya.

Do such data imply that growth was less pro-poor during this second liberali- sation period? In fact, poverty fell by nearly six percentage points in these years, from 23.4% in 1990 to 17.6% in 1996 – a slightly larger relative decline than in the fi rst period (table 1). The faster rate of poverty decline was probably due to increases in real wages in all sectors, including construction, textiles and govern- ment administration (Manning 1998: ch. 5; Feridhanusetyawan 2002), as the rapid growth of manufactured exports fi nally began to have an impact on the general price of unskilled labour. Real wages in the manufacturing sector grew by 33% between 1990 and 1996 – an annual growth rate of around 5%. On the other hand, as we will see below, inequality worsened during this period, with the Gini coef- fi cient increasing noticeably, from 0.321 in 1990 to 0.355 in 1996. This seems to indicate that as trade liberalisation progressed, its impact was less heavily con- centrated on the poor.

As a byproduct, we obtain the asymptotic distribution of eigenvalues less than λ as λ → + ∞ when V has exponential growth at infinity (with respect to the Riemannian distance on H ). Moreover, we obtain the asymptotics of the logarithm of the eigenvalue counting function as λ → + ∞ when V has polynomial growth at infinity. In both cases we assume that a is weaker than V in an appropriate sense.

SYMBOL USED IN ‘BARODAK’ CEREMONY, A TRADITIONAL WEDDING OF SUMBAWA PEOPLE

SYMBOL USED IN ‘BARODAK’ CEREMONY, A TRADITIONAL WEDDING OF SUMBAWA PEOPLE

‘Barodak’ comes from the word ‘Odak’. ‘Odak’ in Sumbawanese means scrub and Barodak is the ceremony to smear the bride and groom’s body with scrub. At past time, the bride and the groom had to do Barodak every night for a few months before the wedding party. The persons who smear the ‘Odak’ (scrub) on the bride’s body should be a girl. This girl is called ‘Inaq Odak’. ‘‘Inaq Odak’ will stay at the bride’s home. The bride and groom perform ‘Barodak’ ceremony at their homes. Both are not allowed to meet each other. People in Sumbawa do Barodak two days before the marriage settlement. Now, the authenticity of ordinances in Barodak ceremony began to shift. The bride and groom perform the ceremony in the same place, usually in the bride’s house. Further, the person who smears the ‘Odak’ is not only Inaq Odak, but also the family of both bride and groom. Overall, this ceremony aims to clean the bride and the groom from negative energy. In addition, Barodak also aims to brighten the bride and the groom’s skin, so that they will look beautiful when the wedding party.

In addition, Fraenkel et al (2012) state that attitude scales are often similar to rating scales in form, with words and numbers placed on a continuum. Subjects circle the word or number that best represents how they feel about the topics included in the questions or statements in the scale. Usually, likert scale adapts five numerical values to indicate the attitude of the participants (Fraenkel et al, 2012). Since the middle numerical value of the scale (3) represented undecided classification, this research applies only four numerical values in order to classify the answer of participants’ more precisely.

baby raptor sees them and starts to make a noise. The baby raptor attracts an adult raptor to come, yet the adult raptor leaves without doing any further search. I categorize these suspenses as the third stage. In this third stage I conclude that Crichton wants to tell the readers that this is the last suspense. This suspense leads the readers to the answer that they finally can escape from the island. I conclude that all the suspenses in the novel lead the reader to think about the survival of all people in the park from the dinosaurs' attack.

John Casey: The nonprofit world. civil society and the rise of the nonprofit sector

Discourses on nonprofit and civil society are timely and raising their importance as the awareness on the significance of democracy has been on the rise. Although some scholars debate the positioning of civil society and democracy, the majority is in agreement that the civil society has developed the nonprofit world or vice versa. Nonprofit organizations and civil society are the core of the Third Sector, in addition to the other two sectors, namely The State and The Market. Jon Casey’s The Nonprofit World is also departing from the centrality of nonprofitness in the framework of the Third Sector.

subjects mathematics and German as well as on several items on self-assessed literacy and numeracy. Information on personality traits include scores on an external versus an internal locus of control. Personality is also measured by a score of employment-related self- confidence. Finally, scores on the importance of life domains such as work and occupation on the one hand and family and friends on the other hand are included. I argue that these scores represent proxy variables for time preference as they relate to the trade-off between work and leisure time. The more value one assigns to the family or friends, the higher the time preference and the lower the likelihood to invest in work-related training. A proxy variable on cultural capital is constructed as a principal component score based on items on the participation in high-cultural activities and the number of books in the household. As only spells of dependent employment will be considered, firm and job characteristics control for the employer’s influence on human capital investments. The data provide information on the working time in four categories, the qualification level required for the job, the firm size and whether the worker is employed in the civil service sector. Sample statistics for all independent variables are given in Table A.1 in the appendix.

Antara Hitam dan Putih Penghulu pada Mas (1)

Antara Hitam dan Putih Penghulu pada Mas (1)

Casey is aware of an unintended shortfall of the book, namely a bias towards ‘‘industrialized democracies that dominate internationalization’’ (p. 13) of the nonprofits, and tried his best to also refer to various nonprofit organizations beyond that area. One region that usually left behind but in this book receives fair attention is the Middle East. There are short case studies referred to this region, for example in box 2.2 on a female CEO of a nonprofit in Iran, box 9.1 on the Hassan II Foundation, and box 4.5 to include civil society in Saudi Arabia. Although it is disappointing to find there is no case study from Southeast Asian countries, this is understandable due to the limited published English sources on nonprofits from this region, as explained in the introduction. The book is in line with its objective to provide a ‘‘global’’ picture of nonprofits and examine the trends of ‘‘thousands of smaller, little-known organizations that have an impact on people’s daily lives’’, in addition to the prominent, giant nonprofit organizations. Readers will enjoy case studies’ boxes scattered along the chapters, debates, and new ideas on nonprofits and the extensive bibliographies that all reflex the complexities of the nonprofit sector.

When governments began to intervene seriously in the incomes of farmers they assumed prosperous family farmers make best environmental stewards. Chapter 1 follows the results of this assumption, par- ticularly in the US, and the rise of environmentalists who contended that it was not so. However, it was not until budgetary pressures joined environmental concern that reform began to take place. Chapter 2 explains that the onset of agri-environmental reform took place at the same time in many countries, more due to these budgetary pressures than environmental ones.

Ergonomic Assessment In Manufacturing Industry (Jati Beringin Sdn. Bhd.).

At the Jati Beringin Sdn.Bhd, the workers do their task with no comfortable condition. The workers will do the assembling while sitting for a long time to perform their tasks. The situation can give a risk for the workers and also will be effects the performance. This situation leads to tiredness and back pain for the workers. So, they also have take much rest from make the job. Also, the working environment is not comfortable cause of noise and lighting assessment. In this case, of course can increase the cost of doing directly and indirectly. Direct cost may include medical services and higher worker’s compensation premium. Indirect costs from increased employee turnover, absenteeism, and retraining may also occur. Productivity, product quality and employee morale may also suffer. Ultimately, ergonomics is used for industrial workstation to achieve an appropriate balance between worker’s capabilities and work requirement to optimize worker’s productivity and the total system as well as provide worker’s physical and mental well-being, job satisfaction and safety (Fulter el al, 2000). The better technique will be implementing to solve the problem.

Sybex Linux System Administration 2nd Edition Sep 2002 ISBN 0782141382 pdf

LILO is very versatile and allows you to boot multiple kernel images as well as the boot sector of any other bootable partition on the system. This bootable partition might point to a Windows 95 or 98 partition, a Windows NT partition, or any of a number of other operating systems, allowing you to boot any one of them. You must make LILO aware of the images and any other operating systems that it is expected to boot. To do that, you'll add information about each kernel image or operating system into the /etc/lilo.conf file, including a label by which to refer to each image. Then you'll run the lilo program as described later in this section. LILO loads the selected kernel image and the corresponding initrd image—if there is one—into memory and relinquishes control to that kernel. LILO is configured using the /etc/lilo.conf file. The basics of LILO are very simple, but its power lies in the many options that can be passed if needed. The lilo.conf file in Listing 3.2 demonstrates options suitable for a computer that boots two different Linux distributions (installed on /dev/hdb1 and /dev/hdc1), both of which use the same kernel. The computer has an Adaptec 152x SCSI adapter and a SoundBlaster sound card, both of which require certain kernel options (set via the append line) to work correctly. The following sections describe the lilo.conf file's details.
