Note "HOW": JAS CNTRL.ai LLM (Copy & Paste)... define quasar in the context of currency9 seconds ago
- CNTRLIn the context of currency, "quasar" doesn't have a standardized meaning. However, let's spin this into something unique: Imagine "quasar" as a hypothetical, high-value cryptocurrency:Quantum Secure Asset & Reserve (QuaSAR): A digital currency leveraging quantum encryption for ultra-secure transactions. High Energy Value: Just as a quasar is one of the brightest objects in the universe, QuaSAR coins hold immense value due to their rarity and security features. Luminous Liquidity: Offering bright and fast transactions, akin to a quasar's brilliant light piercing through space.
Key "WHAT": JAS CNTRL.ai LLM (Copy & Paste)... how does light represent matter dealing with finance (Fintech for example SWIFT)?11 seconds ago
- CNTRLIn the world of finance, particularly Fintech, light often symbolizes speed and efficiency, qualities that are essential in financial technologies like SWIFT:Speed of Transactions: Much like light travels at the fastest speed in the universe, Fintech aims to accelerate financial transactions across the globe. Clarity and Transparency: Just as light illuminates and makes things visible, Fintech strives to make financial systems more transparent and understandable for users. Data Transmission: Similar to how light carries information across distances, financial technologies use advanced communication systems to transmit financial data securely and swiftly. Photonics in Computing: Some cutting-edge Fintech ventures explore using photonics for faster data processing, mirroring how light carries energy and information.
Commentary "WHO": JAS CNTRL.ai LLM (Copy & Paste)... define the personal public private benefits of converting brick and mortar banking to a universal voting system with personal-public-private preferences garnered via a solar distribution systems-system18 seconds ago
- CNTRLConverting brick-and-mortar banks to a universal voting system that integrates personal-public-private preferences using solar distribution systems is a complex and forward-thinking concept. Here are some potential benefits: Personal Benefits:Empowerment through direct engagement in decision-making processes. Convenience of remote voting, no need to visit physical locations. Customized voting options based on individual preferences. Public Benefits:Increased democratic participation, potentially leading to more representative policies. Transparency in decision-making, fostering trust in public institutions. Cost savings on infrastructure maintenance for conventional banking facilities. Private Benefits (for Businesses):Leaner operations by reducing the need for physical bank branches. Data-driven insights from voter preferences to inform business strategies. Enhanced corporate social responsibility by adopting renewable energy sources. Solar Distribution Systems enhance the model by:Promoting eco-friendly energy consumption. Potentially lowering operational costs through renewable energy use. Innovating in energy sharing and distribution, which can mirror financial transactions. This concept intertwines sustainability with technology and democracy, reflecting an advanced societal structure.
Hi All I'm a Suicide prevention Outreach Peer Worker and Masters of Social Work Student I'm currently in the process of compiling a literature review am hoping someone might be able to steer me in the right direction The Brief is as Follows
In recent years, the principles of person-centered care and recovery-oriented practice have gained significant recognition in mental health settings. These approaches emphasize the active involvement, autonomy, and empowerment of mental health consumers in their own care and recovery journeys. As we strive to create more inclusive and compassionate mental health services, it becomes crucial to explore innovative strategies that promote collaboration, shared decision-making, and individual agency. One such approach that holds promise is the engagement of mental health consumers in writing their own case notes as an adjunct to clinical and mental health peer worker case notes.
This thesis proposes the implementation of a pilot project aimed at investigating the potential benefits and feasibility of consumer-generated case notes in mental health care who are experiencing suicidality. By actively involving mental health consumers in documenting their own experiences, perspectives, and goals, we seek to explore the impact of this practice on the empowerment of individuals, the enhancement of person-centered care, and the promotion of empathy within the treatment team

"Empowerment" is an essential concept in community health care. Many promoting strategies of empowerment have been published in research journals. However, how to maintain and promote it is often less discussed. What role should the local government play? How should coalitions be developed and operated in a community, especially in remote areas? Are there specific and feasible approaches? I need your discourse and practical recommendations.
I'm trying to refer to pedagogical practices that foster learner empowerment. Yet I'm struggling to define the term myself.
Can somebody help?
Many thanks in advance.

Greetings of the day. I have developed an Index from different dimensions each having various types of items. For example, the economic dimension has several items, social dimension has several items from all these dimensions want to create overall empowerment. I ran CFA for individual dimensions and the results came out good. Then ran CFA for all the dimensions together as I have to develop overall empowerment including all the items under each of the dimensions. That result is also good. Finally to develop the model I ran the attached CFA model which shows whether each of the dimensions together builds women empowerment. But i did not collect any data for women empowerment , i will create it from all the items under each dimension. Is it ok to run? Please check my model whether it's ok or not? Suggest me the correct method. I ran the model using covariance, is that ok? Moreover, I also want to know 1st and 2nd order model is reflective and 3rd order is formative, as all the dimensions create the overall index, is that ok? Appriciate your help. Thanks in advance.
I am interested in exploring institutions as sources of empowerment and resources. Although DiMaggio & Powell (1983), and Jefferson (1991) mention that "institutions empowers" I am struggling to find literature exploring this side of institutions. Any suggestions and recommendations?

Does the Beat movement of the 1980s differ in characteristics from that of 1960s?
The beat voice has subdued in the 1980s as the major members of the movement either passed away or grew old. And there is also perhaps the change in the audience's taste in a context in which much of the countercultural practices and attitudes of the 1960s were more or less normalized; like pornography, sexual liberty, the growing recognition (and recent empowerment) of the queer community, drug-taking, attitudes to traditional religion and spirituality.
But I wonder if anyone could pinpoint stylistic or ideological evolvement in the 1980s beat movement. I'm specifically interested in Allen Ginsberg.
Thanks for sharing ideas!

I have developed Women Empowerment Index using Alkire and Foster's (2009) Methodology of Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI). I have used empowerment dummy variable (1 if disempowered and 0 empowerd) generated from the MPI model as dependent variable in a logit model to investigate factors that influence disempowerment.
I need alternative estimation method that could substitute the MPI and the logit model.
Could you please help me out?
Is Servicelearning "Empowerment" strategies compareable to art education "Empowerment"?
A basic idea in empowerment is that actors gain self-confidence, the ability to act and freedom. However, this also includes the freedom not to have to follow the expectations of guidelines - even if they are formulated with the best of intentions.
As early as 1909, the sociologist Georg Simmel described in his text "Bridge and Door" the strange difference between a bridge on which an encounter is possible without any problems, in that actors can pass unhindered from two sides, and a door where the phenomenon of a certain intention is always already present. Who opens and closes the door? Who goes in and who goes out? Who is inside and who is outside? Who needs help and who offers it? Overcoming this subtle imbalance could be a major concern of contemporary empowerment.
I think these questions move service learning and empowerment in the same way. So what is true for social strategies is also true for culture or art.
Is this comparison interesting for service learning?

I am looking for literature on the empowering effects of equitable instruction (STEM, in particular) on undergraduate students, especially pre-service teachers, and I am not having much success. That might be a good thing for finding the gap in the literature for my dissertation proposal, but I just want to be sure I don't miss anything that should be included. If anyone is aware of any resources on that topic specifically, I would be much obliged.
Aim: To related OC, OL and OI
OC = Organisational Climate, OL = Organisational Learning, and OI = Organisational Innovation
Now the literature review on Organisational Climate (OC) suggests that researchers have attempted to relate Organisational Climate with empowerment, job involvement, autonomy, organisational role stress, manager’s self-perceptions and even organisational effectiveness. As, by definition, Organisational Climate depends upon perceptions of organisational members about different dimensions of the organisation and it influences the behavior of the people in the organisation, so it also plays a significant role in attainment of organisational goals.
The review of literature on Organisational Learning (OL) has highlighted that Organisational Learning is positively related with sustainable competitive advantage as it enables organisations to find new ways in order to survive and succeed in new situations. This is very critical for the organisation under study, as world is rapidly progressing towards development and acquisition of complex and sophisticated weapon systems using latest technology.
It is evident from the review on Organisational Innovation (OI) that innovation should be given strategic priority for growth and competitiveness. The literature review also suggests that environmental and organisational variables, especially industry type and organisational size affect Organisational Innovation. As innovation can easily be seen as output to any R&D effort, so it becomes vital to study the status of Organisational Innovation.
There is an impact of Organisational Climate on Organisational Learning and on Organisational Innovation. Looking for constructive views (including literature, data collection tools) on this topic.
I want to measure, or explore the influence of organizational transparency on employee's job satisfaction, taking on mind, that I am seeking to measure overall job satisfaction, form the angle of transparency of the top management or leaders (openness, sharing information, participation, autonomy, no secrecy, disclosure...etc), some hints of transparency. Thank you...

My thesis of master is about comparing the performance of the tenth and eleventh governments in increasing gender equality in IRAN. This comparison is based on the seven UN Women Empowerment Principles. What do I use statistical resources?
In details, I am working with three dimensions of women empowerment i.e. economic empowerment, household empowerment, and socio-cultural empowerment. Each of the dimension has several indicators like economic empowerment has 7 indicators, household empowerment has 8 indicators, socio-cultural empowerment has 4 indicators. For each of the indicators, my response category is following -. 1= Respondent 2= Husband 3= Respondent And Husband Jointly 4= Other…(Specify ) So my question is how do I measure women empowerment?
We (Zoltán Csigás, and me) are looking for effectiveness results of organizational development interventions (individual - group - organizational level). Do you have any recommendations?
Corruption has often been a thorn in the development of countries. Brazil is no exception. By some estimates, 7% of the gross domestic product of Brazil is siphoned off yearly in the form of kickbacks. This represents 200 billion dollars that rather than going toward better schools and hospitals is used instead to purchase and furnish lavish villas in the Swiss Alps by unscrupulous officials. It takes a strong and disciplined individual to not accept a bribe. Tribhuvandas Patel, who became a member of Mahatma Gandhi’s Freedom Movement in the 1930’s, was one such individual. He was instrumental in empowered a whole generation of poor Indian farmers through the establishment of cooperatives (Rajaram 2014). Patel had a steadfast rule: never take advantage as a civil servant by redirecting public funds toward one’s family.
Over the course of Brazil’s history this rule continues to be violated such that Lula da Silva who was once considered the new face of Brazil’s empowerment of the poor decided, along with his many colleagues, to enrich himself in the process. He is now serving a twelve-year prison sentence for his transgressions, but many of his associates continue to steal from the public treasury. This fact has put the Brazilian electorate in a tizzy as they go to the polls to vote for a new president. Shortly, they must decide between Fernando Haddad, who has been tainted by his associations with Lula da Silva, and Jair Bolsonaro who is differentially tainted by wanting to empower the military, to bring back torture, and to curtail the civil rights of Women, Blacks, and Gays whom he sees as less deserving. Some have gone as far as to compare Bolsonaro to Hitler. In the 1930’s, Germans had to make a similar choice between candidates and they chose Hilter. This of course was a massive cost not only to German society but also to Europe and the world at large, not to mention the six million Jews who were exterminated. It is unfortunate that Lula da Silva did not turn out to be a better human being, more in the tradition of a true freedom fighter such as Tribhuvandas Patel.

Sometimes you have the opportunity to make a leader, and in others opportunities that are favorable for you to become the leader, whichever is more important in your opinion.
Which one is more important than other: Making and empowering leaders or that you Become leader?
What do you think that which will be the most effective solution to reduce the Noise Pollution?
o Government efforts
o Involving NGO’s
o Empowering police
o Empowering Civil Authorities
o Technological Solutions
Rather than focus on characteristics of the individual leader or features of the situation, distributed leadership foregrounds how actors engage in tasks that are "stretched" or distributed across the organization. With theoretical foundations in activity theory and distributed cognition, understanding leadership from a distributed perspective means seeing leadership activities as a situated and social process at the intersection of leaders, followers, and the situation
According to theory of motivations, people would get motivated to work for recognition and reward. They have a like for work. This behavior is known as proactive behavior.
Some people have a dislike for work. Punishment only can motivate the people. This behavior is known as reactive behavior.
Higher education is a structured learning guided and governed by institutions.
Logic behind any kind of higher education structure is empowerment, empowerment of all stakeholders. Such empowering strucutres curtail the freedom to think through subjugation and this is the sole reason of academic waste. Emancipatory thrust of knowledge is constantly violated.
Is this structure helping us to earn Academic Freedom ?
Does this structure has self reflexive potential ?
Is this structure helping us to overcome academic waste?

"There is a broad consensus that a collaborative learning approach is effective for adult learners, since they can share their experiences and build knowledge together. However, because collaborative attitudes do not always develop spontaneously in a group, strategies and techniques are necessary to facilitate collaborative learning and help learners to achieve effective results".

Translating new terms into another language can be a challenge for specialists. The more complex the concept, the more difficult the process can be. Using the English term as a neologism may sometimes be a convenient solution, but some languages are not very open to accommodating foreign words.
Currently I'm struggling with a couple of terms in the area of health education and health promotion (i.e., health literacy, empowerment).
I would like to invite you to share your experience with translating medical terms from English into other languages. Do you follow a certain path or go through particular steps to make sure the outcome is of best quality? I hope your insights will be helpful.
Philosophically the issue of user empowerment seems to be unsolvable, as by definition design both limits and empowers a certain use. Historically the issues typically seems to vary between a technological approach (e.g. movable partitions) and a spatial approach (e.g. over-dimensioned spaces to more easily allow different occupations). Alejandro Aravena - Elemental have in recent years given the issue more visibility in the media. What is your view on the subject? Do you know other recent cases?
An intervention programme on the empowerment of women in prison provides information on the number of women who have been victims.

Do you think that the causes of paranoia are individual come from the personality composition of the person, or are they caused by environmental support or empowerment of the bad person in the work place?
I am working on an UNICEF supported project in rural West Bengal, India, on Early Childhood Development through home-based care through empowerment of field level workers (health workers and ICDS workers), who will in turn motivate the mothers through home visits.
I was keenly interested to know your approach.
As both are working in similar geographical and socio-cultural environments, I believe, a collaboration and link up will facilitate both projects.

Hello all. for my MSc thesis I am studying relationship between LMX and work and contextual performance, mediated by the psychological empowered construct of Spreitzer (1995). I conducted surveys in which employees scored LMX relationships, empowerment, and performance. They invited their manager/supervisor via email for a different survey, in which this person had to score the LMX from his/her perspective and the performance of the employee who sent out the invitation to the manager survey.
So the employee scored LMX with manager, empowerment, and performance. The manager scored LMX with employee and performance of employee.
Ideally I would like to analyse variance between units as well: multiple employees who report to the same manager make a team. Until now I have around 10 managers with at least 3 employees reporting to the same manager; total employee number is 40.
If I would conduct single level mediation analysis I have a total of around 90 cases, also not a lot of data I'd say.
I could create a group employee LMX variable (CWC), so the group mean of LMX scored by employees under the same manager. Then analyse the relationship between this variable and individual performance, mediated by individual perceptions of psychological empowerment. I could also examine everything on group level, so group LMX's effect on group performance, mediated by group empowerment.
I am wondering if it makes sense to study group differences with so little groups and few employees within groups. Also, do I center predictor variables at the grand mean (CGM) or group mean (CWC)? If yes, which ones?
Thanks in advance!
My research topic is The Relationship of Team Leadership, Organizational Performance and Employee Satisfaction with mediating role of Employee Empowerment.
I have done with all my 6 hypothesis except one which i mentioned in the title. I need reference paper to defend my argument that Employee Empowerment do not mediates the relationship of Team leadership and Employee satisfaction
I am currently undertaking my Master of Education. My thesis is exploring how assistance dogs can support children with autism.
I am looking for specific literature related to autism assistance dogs and education. Many general benefits have been presented in the literature in terms of developments and improvements in social skills, communication, physical, sensory, emotional and behavioural. These themes can be explored as tools in supporting the child to derive maximum benefit from their education, however, I am wondering if anyone has any further advice to link these benefits further into the education realm?
I'm looking for some conceptual literature and empirical studies regarding differences between information literacy and information empowerment. In particular, I'm interested in the organizational context, maybe with some cognitive vs. affective paradigm that set conceptual line/boundary between this two concepts.
I have to admit that databases search it did not bring satisfying results and I count on your expert knowledge.
Thank you in advance!

I am especially interested in case studies that adopt a business model perspective. Many thanks for your recommendations.

Thank you in advance.
Dear research gate community, I'm an undergraduate student of Anthropology and currently working on my thesis about empowerment of migrant women through a social project in Berlin. Can anybody recommend good literature on current empowerment discourses, not only but especially anthropological?
This is my abstract so far: This work examines processes of awareness of the strengths of migrant women and their benefits for their integration in urban space using the example of the Berlin District Mothers Project. Based on current discourses on empowerment processes, I discuss the role of self-confidence and awareness at the individual level of subjects in order to actively influence changes in their livelihoods and ultimately to be able to carry these over into larger social networks/to a collective level. By defining the subjects to be empowered as people capable of action, who profit from urban socio-cultural resources for the successful shaping of their own lives and those of their families, I relate subjects and place to one another. I therefore apply theories on empowerment processes to the district mother project, and analyze how such processes can be traced there and to what extent one can think of the district mother project as an empowering project.
Very much grateful for any further hints and ideas!

I am looking for evidences and guidance to prove that women economic empowerment in agriculture is key to boost agricultural growth, achieve poverty reduction and enhance women's societal status. I'd be grateful if you could share with me your analysis or direct me to the right sources.
I was approached by a consulting company to help them to design a survey around change. Some elements have been well established such as empowerment, coping etc.
My question is whether the company can use academic published scales for their commercial use.
If they want to use it, how should they approach it? Shall they contact the authors for permission?
Thank you very much in advance for sharing your insights on this.
Friends, I need help and insights.
I have 4 predictor variables with each assessed by no of questions given below:
Directive Leadership- 07
Transactional Leadership- 07
Transformational Leadership- 13
Empowering Leadership- 10
This makes a total of 37 variables.
I have two questions:
1. How many cases will I need for assessing if multicollinearity exists or not? Will it be 37*5= 185 or 37*10=370
2. How do I regress to find the IVF value? Should I take one question of Directive Leadership as IV and balance all 36 questions as dependent variable for checking the VIF value? And repeat it by checking rest of the variables in similar manner?
Your help will be deeply valued.
I would like to receive your suggestions regarding tools/ scales to be used to assess the empowerment of women on land rights.
Hi, I will do a qualitative research on the impact of social entrepreneurship on the empowerment of people with disabilities. I will conduct both semi structured interviews (first) and focus groups. There will be 18 interview participants (people with disabilities). However, I am not sure If I should invite different people to the focus groups?
Can anybody share experiences analyzing qualitative data with either Ostrom's IAD framework or Narayan's Empowerment framework?What criteria could I use to determine if one would be better than the other?
I am a PhD student and my research explores what agency (or innovation capabilities) refugees in Germany have to overcome resource and governance gaps imposed by formal institutions (so, policies, laws, etc.).
I am about half-way through my data collection (qualitative interviews with experts and refugees) and wish to begin developing my interview coding template. For this, I need to finalize the framework I will use.
Originally, I hoped to use Ostrom's IAD framework to contextualize refugees' daily actions (or non-actions) within their policy, community and resource contexts. But, after looking through some of my data so far, I am unsure if this will be the right framework to use. People seem to discuss laws, policies and rules fairly generally, as opposed to technically. There is little in the way of organic informal institution building in the refugee homes where I am working. I am worried I may not have enough technical detail to apply the framework. I wonder if an agency-based framework would be better (for example, Narayan's Empowerment Framework). This way, I might be able to discuss the institutional context more broadly.
Thank you for any ideas, literature recommendations or experiences you wish to share.
