Chieftaincies and Decentralization in the Democ...

This book examines under which conditions chieftaincies can play a key role in the democratic and decentralization initiatives aiming at increasing Congolese state's legitimacy and efficiency. The author applies to the Congo Dele Olowu's analysis of the four dimensions of decentralization political, economic, administrative and financial. He comes to questioning the decentralization rhetoric in the political leaders' discourse, in light of the legislation that has been actually applied from the colonial period until now. He shows the parallel between the colonial and the post-colonial administration by emphasizing the lack of a real will to decentralize. He mentions, however, some recent noticeable signs of decentralization, particularly in the new constitution of 2006 and laws. They include a constitutional recognition of legal status to the chieftaincies, a share in the national revenue, the elections of local assemblies and accountability of the executive to these assemblies. Those changes still need, of course, to mature both in their design and their implementation. This study explores some ways in which this improvement can be pursued.

In 2006, the Google Corporation appeared in China with google.cn. The business model of Google, as a search engine corporation, is looked at in China from the point of view of market share, revenue streams, profit and loss, and competition from Chinese search engine rivals. This work also explores the Google experience in China by using well established concepts of corporate goodwill and corporate reputation. Like many multinational corporations in China, Google may have underestimated political risk when entering the Chinese Internet economy, and/or, was unprepared for unlevel playing field.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Robert Emmet Hannegan (June 30, 1903 October 6, 1949) was a St. Louis, Missouri politician who served as Commissioner of Internal Revenue from October 1943 to January 1944. He also served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 1944 to 1947 and United States Postmaster General from 1945 to 1947. After his political career, in 1947, Hannegan and partner Fred Saigh purchased the St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball. But Hannegan, ill with heart disease, sold his share in the team to Saigh a few months before his death. Hannegan earned an LL.B. from Saint Louis University School of Law in 1925. A power broker in the St. Louis Democratic Party allied with Senator Bennett Clark, Hannegan helped save the political career of Harry S. Truman in 1940 following the tax fraud conviction of Truman's ally, Kansas City boss Tom Pendergast. Hannegan supported Truman for re-election to the U.S. Senate when he was challenged in the Democratic primary by Governor Lloyd C. Stark and Maurice M. Milligan, who both sought credit for bringing down Pendergast.

Scientific Essay from the year 2012 in the subject Economics - International Economic Relations, , language: English, abstract: The current global economy is characterized by extensive globalization of the markets. The accompanying international trade affects industrial nations and developing countries in differing degrees. The analysis of trade policy in developing countries can, in the process, be analyzed using the same tools as those for developed countries, namely industrial na-tions. Earlier development stages of trade policy amongst developing countries were character-ized by protectionism and an orientation towards a domestic market which consequently led to a weak internationalization of these countries. It was not possible to decrease the distance between the classical industrial states since the industrial states themselves, in the context of the first phase of globalization, were able to significantly advance on a global scale.As a result of the rejection of protectionism by means of changing political structures and the accompanying liberalization, it was therefore possible, in the early phases of globaliza-tion, whose origins lie in the end of the 19th and the start of the 20th century, for several developing countries to successfully advance in the wake of the general dynamic of inter-nationalization. The share in the world good's market; the volumes in direct investments and the inflows of portfolio capital were able to increase amongst these groups of countries, albeit not for all countries to the same extent. As a result, the majority of developing countries today are tightly embedded in world trade. Moreover, these countries were capable of registering export quotas of 20% and 30%. The gap between the so-called OECD countries could be largely made up for. In the course of early globalization, the OECD countries also dynamically developed with the consequence that many developing countries were, in turn, able to benefit from these global economic interactions. Today, the export revenue of OECD countries with develop-ing countries represents 25%. This is a 40% increase within the last 20 years. The foreign trade of developing countries with OECD countries, on the other hand, ac-counts for merely 60% of the total foreign trade of developing countries in our present day. At the same time, there has been an emergence of foreign trade diversification in favor of exporting industrial goods by courtesy of developing countries which amounted to as much as 84% in 1996 which in 1996 accounted for as much as 84%.

Examination Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Communications - Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, grade: 2,0, Stockholm University (JMK), course: Method Project, language: English, abstract: The basis for this study is the assumption that there is a shift in power relations to be observed due to the growing importance of networks online. Following the recent downward spiral of traditional news media's sales (MarketLine, February 2013) the question is whether those formerly well-respected news sources are not only losing revenue but also their authoritative position as opinion leaders. . News content may vary in different countries and social layers but the fact that news has always been a decisive factor in human interaction also applies - if not even more - to the online world. According to the recent McArthur report, 58 % of forwarded links in the U.S. are containing a political message - a phenomenon called 'latent capacity' (Jenkins, 2012, p. 12). Newspapers have recognized this potential and created their own pages on social networks. But is this measure effective? Are people still more likely to 'like' and 'share' information which has been publicized by a supposedly reliable media house or do they trace the information back to its source by checking the concerning company's, organization's or celebrity's easily accessible facebook page? Moreover, are facebook 'friends' taking over the function of gatekeepers who supply us with information? What is of interest in this respect is where those forwarded links are originating. As Christakis and Fowler unravel in their study on social networks, those trends do not only spill over from friend to friend, but even more by traversing several connections such as our 'friends' friends' friends' (Christakis & Fowler, 2009, p. 22) - a phenomenon which Granovetter calls 'the strength of weak ties' (Granovetter, 1973).

Student Financing of Higher Education

The financing of higher education is undergoing great change in many countries around the world. In recent years many countries are moving from a system where the costs of funding higher education are shouldered primarily by taxpayers, through government subsidies, to one where students pay a larger share of the costs. There are a number of factors driving these trends, including: A push for massification of higher education, in the recognition that additional revenue streams are required above and beyond those funds available from governments in order to achieve higher participation rates Macroeconomic factors, which lead to constraints on overall government revenues Political factors, which manifest in demands for funding of over services, thus restricting the funding available for higher (tertiary) education A concern that the returns to higher education accrue primarily to the individual, rather than to society, and thus students should bear more of the burden of paying for it This volume will help to contribute to an understanding of how these trends occur in various countries and regions around the world, and the impact they have on higher education institutions, students, and society as a whole. With contributions for the UK, USA, South Africa and China this vital new book gives a truly global picture of the rapidly changing situation

In the time of facebook trends and opinions are taking shape within the realm a virtual place which many of its inhabitants worldwide visit on a regular daily basis (Digitalbuzz, 2013). . It is only natural that new routes of information flow develop within this space. However, so far not study has been made which traces this flow of information and identifies the relevant opinion leaders. The aim of this study is to be able to answer questions of human interaction; therefore using the example of facebook, the paths shared content takes and the relationships who serve as vehicle to carry this information will be analyzed. The key question here is: Has the global online network culture altered whom we trust, which news we consume and what information we eventually share with the world?
