    UCSD, ECE 109

    Excerpt: ... ard. Probability, which is a key course for understanding more advanced classes and materials, is not easy and requires a concerted effort on your part if you are to gain facility with it. Because we must develop many concepts from probability theory which go beyond the basic classical discrete probability space theory (which is based the assumption of equiprobable outcomes), we give very little time to the classical theory and its associated underpinnings in the theory of combinatorics. Basically this week and next will contain most of what will be said on the matter. For those of you who would like greater exposure in a more formal manner to combinatorics and classical probability, you might want to consider taking CSE 20 and CSE 21, or at least sitting in on these courses. ECE 109 is an Ideas and Concepts course not merely a `blindly crunch the numbers course.' To succeed in probability and master the subject matter you will need to truly understand the key concepts and ideas. Form Discussion Study Groups. ...

    Excerpt: ... here, provides ample opportunity to witness the subtleties of white privilege and prejudice, whether in classrooms or in other aspects of everyday life. And what I hope to do here this evening is to share some of these experiences. Language is one of the most obvious areas where international students stand out. For most, its taken a concerted effort and study of the English language to qualify for a visa and acceptance into an educational institution and we think that this will be enough to communicate on an everyday basis but the reality is that we could speak with an accent, at a different pace and not be familiar with Australian idiosyncrasies. Language can be a huge barrier. People have said to me, "international students don't speak good English. Its tiring trying to speak to them." Classmates and in some cases, staff, can sometimes assume you cannot understand them and you're more of less sidelined from that point onwards. Sometimes it does require effort and patience to communicate with someone for ...

    Review sheet - Population&Consumption

    Washington, GEOG 270

    Excerpt: ... Notes.htm Population as "Problem" Rapid rise in the rate of population growth in periphery, related assumptions prompts concerns for core societies: - world is poised on the brink of disaster, - we are running out of enough food to sustain the growing population - population growth is responsible for poverty, environmental destruction, and social unrest. economic development in poor countries is impossible as long as populations continue to rise, - increase in economic output must be used to sustain the increased population instead of being invested to create new jobs and wealth. - Leads to concerted effort s by international agencies and governments to control population growth, especially in peripheral countries where it is highest. Which of the authors that we read would agree with the proposition that population is a major world problem? But is it really a Problem? Assumptions about population growth not questioned: - Population growth contributes to economic decline and stagnation in the periphery an ...

    Excerpt: ... is related to the quality of education. In Egypt, home to one-quarter of Arabs, Cairo University, the leading Arab university, is now rated 28thin Africa. Human rights violations remain widespread in the region, where our own troubling behavior toward prisoners has significantly hampered our ability to lecture others. Concerted effort s in those areas of economic, educational and judicial development, coupled with a strong human rights policy, have a far greater chance to make a difference. Despite all its troubles, the United States remains the most powerful country, still powerful enough to reshuffle the deck in the Middle East. But it will never be powerful enough to determine where the cards fall.

    UT Arlington, MANA 4340

    Excerpt: ... e rise of a consumer culture, receding religious influence, business's concerted effort s to gain power, and legal decisions that granted certain rights to corporations that they had not previously held. Ted Nace, in Gangs of America, argues that corporations now have more rights than do individual humans. One of the most important rights won was the right to be conceived of as a "person," and therefore protected by the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution (Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad, 1886). This amendment was originally passed to protect freed slaves, but has been used much more often for the benefit of corporations. One of the interesting questions for students to explore is if corporations have garnered too much power in our society. Business and Society Chapter Notes Several recent books have delved into this subject in some depth. The instructor may want to incorporate some of their content into the classroom discussion or assign students to read sections of different books. O ...
