Questions related to Minorities
Looking for research about how (ethnic, religious, and alternative clusters) minorities have fared in the history of pandemics since the start of the Enlightenment period?
Appreciate your input.
Literary academics who work with me have been expressing growing interest in ethnic writers who write original stories in modern-day, British English (as opposed to their local simplified/broken versions). I have the starting draft of my potential paper The Mis-representation of Ethnic Cultures in Modern Literature. Please share ideas and good reads in this discussion, and express your interest in co-authoring with me. Some of my colleagues say the authors we shall be quoting will also have the opportunity for their books to be made into film. On the other hand, there is a lawyer in my group who would be using the the paper to sue authors that misrepresent ethnic tribes, to pump any dollars charged back into the tribe. Please say something.
More specifically the issues that had needed to be changed due to it not following the ideals of liberty, equality, and democracy.
In the above mentioned question, is it seen that individuals who live in a place as a minority group or community are being influenced by the trait of the majority? Do minorities lose cultural identity among majority? sometimes they even can't perform the cultural or their traditional aspects or activities freely. These or which have not mentioned get significantly weak.
So I'm a bit of a novice at stats. I'm trying to determine statistically whether there is an underrepresentation of ethnic minorities in referrals to a particular type of service.
I wanted to compare the % of ethnic minorities in a locality against the number of referrals to a service in that locality that are ethnic minorities.
eg. let's say one locality, Manchester, has a 25% population of ethnic minorities. The service in Manchester has received 1200 referrals, of which 50 were ethnic minorities (4.16%). *
Then let's say we have Rochdale, and it has 30% population of ethnic minorities. The service in Rochdale has received 500 referrals, of which 70 were ethnic minorities (14%). *
So it's almost like each locality is a participant, with a "score" of overall ethnic minorities and service referral based ethnic minorities. I have this data on 10-15 localities. I was thinking of converting the referral data for each locality into it's percentage (like the 4.16% and the 14% above) and then seeing if there's a significant difference in means of overall population % vs overall service % through a t-test. But then I'm reading that we shouldn't do t-tests with percentages.
I was also hoping to look at whether there are any inter group differences - eg. certain localities come under certain Trusts so did certain Trusts have significantly better representation or not.
Other papers that have done work around ethnic underrepresentation have used chi squared test but I don't think my data would fit into that model because it isn't really categorical.

What is the best way to deal with imbalanced Dataset when the Imbalanced ratio , IR is more than 4.5 (majority 2000, minority 400) ? If I want to use deep learning methods or transfer learning for classification, what is the best way to augment the data. In my problem Healthy control dataset is the minority.
How many people in the USA who speak two or more languages represent ethnic minorities? I am looking for numbers and sources to cite.
Reflections on Recent Waves of Persecution of Baha'is in Iran
Since the establishment of the Islamic Republic in 1979, there have been numerous accounts of the persecution of the Baha'is and other religious minorities in Iran. In an article, the Norwegian journalist Johannes Morken (2022) poses an important question. He writes: "Who will stand against the persecution of religious minorities in Iran?"Considering the current political conditions of the world, I would like to expand on Morton's question by offering a new question: Who is/are responsible for the required changes in today's world?
Persecuting "others" is a fundamental issue we can observe daily in headlines. Humanity has created strong binaries such as minority/majority, west/east, first /third world, poor/reach, and woman/man. This list goes on to distinguish "us" from "other" to express who is right/wrong and to control the thoughts and actions of individuals and groups. Conflict and duality are accepted as the mainspring of human interaction in contemporary society, which echoes a materialistic and narrow interpretation of human life.

With the help of preferences, get each expert's ranking of the options, and then use the correlation coefficient to extract the opponents. In this case, should the opinions of opponents be fully respected instead of being overwhelmed by group opinions?
Where are independent higher education research centres specialising in TRUE Orthodox Christianity, not to be confused with Orthodox Christianity ? True Orthodox Christianity rejects the modernism with its roots in the Russian and earlier Revolutions, including the paracanonical (canonically impermissible) calendar reforms promulgated by incomplete Robber Synods starting with the Patriarchate of Constantinople in the 1920s and the genocide of True (aka Authentic, Genuine or Catacomb) Orthodox Christianity by modernist Orthodox Christianity, resulting ultimately in the response of the True Orthodox Christian 1983 Anathema against Ecumenism by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR) aka Russian Orthodox Church in Exile (ROCIE), embraced by all True, Authentic, Genuine and Catacomb Orthodox Christians. The True Orthodox genocide is numerically by far the greatest Christian martyrdom ever, with tens of millions in the former Russian Empire alone (a large majority of the 110 million "The Economist" estimates were murdered by the Soviet regime alone), was triggered by the refusal of the World Council of Churches, meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, to allow a Greek True Orthodox bishop to speak about this matter, though the New York Times published his proposed address. In response the anathema was promulgated, in English, the WCC official language, at the ROCOR Synodical meeting at their monastery in Mansonville, Québec, also in Canada. Despite making up between 1 and 10% of the Orthodox Christian populations, in the broad sense of the term, throughout the world, I have been, even as an interested True Orthodox Christian, been unable to find any state recognised study centres devoted to the study of True Orthodox Christianity, as opposed to Orthodox Christianity. Some institutions, such as Cambridge University's Institute of Orthodox Christian Studies claim to have all locally active Orthodox Synods represented on their governing bodies, but didn't respond to my request for the publicly available details of the True Orthodox Christian Synods represented there. In any event, that Institute is not an Institute of TRUE Orthodox Christian studies.
When writting the results of the thesis do we need to consider only the % of responses represented by a majority for a particular question or is it ok to report % represented by a minority of respondents for that same question without indicating what majority represent?
I need a partner for completing my research on ethnic minorities land rights of Chittagong hill tracts area.
"Participation of underrepresented minorities has long been an issue for science and engineering occupations, with participation rates well below that of whole population demographics as well as all occupational categories. Since 2007, the percentage of underrepresented minorities working in science and engineering occupations has ranged between 15% to 25% below that of whole population demographic trends with environmental science and geoscience occupations having the lowest participation rates."
Preliminary data of various studies showed the proportion of the population from Black (in New York), Asian (UK) and other minority ethnic backgrounds and people from low income are highly deprived with COVID-19. These groups reported higher COVID-19 mortality rates irrespective of population density. Furthermore, most of these minority groups are aged 50-79. Since the epidemic started, several studies have confirmed these findings. It is interesting to discuss the reasons behind these adverse outcomes and also share your experience about COVID-19.
how I can to plot minority carrier lifetime in Silvaco TCAD?(Minority carrier diffusion in IngaAs / Inp pin heterojunctions for Photodetector)?
I am looking for a laboratory, either a research facility or a commercial lab which can undertake Y chromosome analysis.
I am in New Zealand. I have hair samples. Some of the 'subjects' are dead so blood from these stallions is not possible.
This is for a wider project which is looking at genetic diversity within a minority breed.
In this circuit the capacitor is junction capacitance of diode and ringing takes place here. The third plot is voltage across diode. As the stored minority charge inductor is stored with negative current and it need a path to flow. My doubt is where does this current actually(physically) flow? I mean the junction capacitance is modelled from the depletion region meaning that it will flow through diode again but diode cant conduct in negative direction. Please explain me what is exactly going on here and tell me where am I going wrong.
Thanks in advance
After extraction of the essential oil, I found a high percentage of limonene presenting more than 90%.
Can I separate the pure limonene from the minority that presents less than 10%?
My colleagues and I found evidence of a Cultural (Mis)Attribution Bias: a tendency to overemphasize the role of culture in the behavior of racial/ethnic minorities, and to underemphasize it in the behavior of Whites. Visit https://osf.io/preprints/psyarxiv/5u9ve
Hi, sorry I'm stumped. I'm going to do a study on the leadership styles (using the MLQ Form 5X) of minority women administrators in medical schools.
How will I calculate the sample size?
I'm wondering if anyone can help me? I'm new to this subject and I'm finding it easy to find research regarding white researchers conducting research in 'ethnic minority' communities, but I'm struggling to find research regarding a black researcher conducting research in predominantly white communities.
I'm wanting to know anyone can point me in the right direction regarding research specifically detailing the impact of race with regards to a black researcher conducting research amongst predominantly white participants in a working-class area (that is predominantly white)?
I'm interested in research that has been conducted in the UK though I'm also open to research conducted in other countries.
I the LightGBM algorithm to predict the outcome of tennis matches. Next I made two confusion matrices, one for the training set and one for the test set. I calculated stats as precision, recall, and the F-score, as shown in the tables below. The thing I am curious about is why the precision of the longshot drops dramatically from 67.64% in the training se to 57.67% in the test set. I figured this happened because of the class ratio in the training set. There is an imbalance ratio of 2.02. The favorite seems to winning 15930 times and the longshot player 7849 times in the training set. Due to this minority the algorithm lacks learning from the longshot class?
Similar phenomena happens whenever the predictions come from the XGBoost algorithm, see the file that has been added to this question. You can see the confusion matrices, precision, recall and F-score.
I used the `scale_pos_weight` parameter to account for the class imbalance, but with no effect. Also I tried undersampling and oversampling methods, but also with no effect thus far.
Would the precision of the longshot player improve whenever I tackle this imbalance in other ways? Or isn't this the problem?
I am trying to analyse the survival of the Muslim minority in Sri Lanka based on existing theories on the survival of minority in a multi-ethnic state.
It promotes tolerance and understanding above and beyond our political, cultural and religious differences, putting special emphasis on the defence of human rights, the protection of ethnic minorities and the most vulnerable groups, and the conservation of the environment.
Hello! I would love to get constructive feedback on my brief research proposal. Thanks so much in advance!
Hi, this is Ayoob,
I have started work on tunneling and propping up and its impact on firm's performance. As it is my thesis-1.
To investigate the existence of "Tunneling and Propping up" in Pyaramids business structures (Groups ownerships) in Pakistan, and how the Ultimate Owners (majority share holders) expropriate the money of minority shareholders.
As it is indicated in many researches that, those countries where there is weak legal system for the protection of minority shareholders there usually it happens.
Tunneling is described as the transfer of resources by controlled shareholders from the lower down the firm in pyaramid. i.e:
1.To take or give loans on lower or higher intrest rates.
2.To sale outputs or purchases of inputs at price which is different from market price, ete....
Propping is defined as when enterpreneur injects their private funds in the firm to save the firm from difficult situation or may be at the time when it is on verge of bankruptcy.
It is ultimately beneficial for both majority and minority shareholders, but here million dollar question is that why majority share holder is injecting his private money, the answer is simple. If he/she save the firm today then in future it will tunnel easily because the firm will generate more returns.
However, propping up is clandestine, but literature indicates its existence.
Please make me more clear about the topic and ways how to carryout the research and literatures review.

This question arose in a study which included collecting data from the well known Trail Making Tests, A and B (TMTA and TMTB), but it would apply equally to various other timed tests, such as reaction-time tests. For both tests the main score traditionally used is the time require to complete a number of steps (drawing in a specified order lines between circles on a page). In the simpler test, the circles are labelled A, B, C etc and this defines the order, while in the slightly more complicated test, circles are labelled A, 1, B, 2, C, 3, etc, and this is the required order.
For the simpler test there are typically negligible errors, and error rate does not seem to be a reliable source of individual differences. However, for TMTB, for a significant minority of participants (the very elderly, or those with some level of cognitive impairment) the error rate is not near zero. Intuitively, when using out analyses with time-to-completion as the main variable, it seems sensible that the error rate should be taken into account in some way.
I have not seen this issue addressed in the literature, but a researcher working in a similar area suggested that the time score could be adjusted by increasing the time score by a certain amount depending on the number of errors made. Although performing such an adjustment seems reasonable (at least better than just using the time score, without taking into account individual differences in error rate), it raises the question of exactly what rule for adjusting the time score would be appropriate.
The would be easy to examine if there was another measure known to measure the same construct as TMTB but be totally error free, so there could be no speed accuracy trade-off within individuals. Then a regression model, with this score as the dependent variable, could suggest was correction to the time score would be appropriate. Unfortunately, I don’t know of any such test.
Has anyone seen any suggestion in the literature on this, or can suggest a plausible way of correcting time scores to take into account for finite error rates?
Under normal liberal democracy there is war between several views on how to advance the common good either at the expense of the minority(e.g. traditional liberal democratic parties) or at the least cost possible to the minority(e.g. traditional liberal conservative parties). ...War here simply means " a usually heated conflict between competing ideas....".
In normal liberal democracies, science plays a central role, and if science is not followed or it is partially followed or it is ignored completely and things go bad, the opposition party will use that rational in the next election and the incumbent party may spin the reality, but the buck stops there…and the people decide at election day….
Hence, liberal normal democracies of all sorts are incompatible with authoritarianism.
When we have an extreme liberal democracy such as USEXIT or Trumpism, the whole thing changes….extreme liberal democratic outcomes should be expected to align better with authoritarianism than with normal democratic thinkers,,,
I can see several reasons why that is the case, which leads to the question, Which are the central links between extreme liberal democracy and authoritarianism/dictatorships?. Can you see them? Or What do you think?
Please express your views on the question.
The is literature (in Sociolinguistics) that states that the minorization (social) of a language can contribute significantly to the minorization of the collective identity of the linguistic community that speaks that language.
I am working with a MMLV-RT (Moloney murine leukemia virus- Transcriptase Reverse). I am expressing in E. coli pTGroE and purifying in a Chelating Sepharose loaded with Ni2+. I am eluting the protein with 500 mM of Imidazole, however, there are a lot of contaminants together (gel attached). I think these contaminants are chaperones, due to this strain produces two chaperones. I read some protocols, that the autors use 0.5% Triton X-100, 10% (v/v) glycerol, together with the buffer containing imidazole. However, we do not have BCA kit to quantify protein, and Bradford is not possible to use with thi detergent and glycerol. Someone has a suggestion to improve the purification? OBS: it is not possible to see the band in the SDS-PAGE, but in the Western Blot we have a band in 56 kDa. Therefore, the protein is minority in this sample.
I am proposing to write on Stigmatisation and mental illness among the Black and Ethnic Minorities living in the Uk , mostly the Afro-Carribeans. I would like to know how I can re-phrame the questions, as I also want to add their hospital experiences along with the questions.
I will also welcome any related Articles on this.
What are the relevant questions that I can ask in the research design.
Can I use questionnaires or interviews?
My systematic rewiew is about the therapeutic alliance in minorities, however the results in Publmed are not congruent with research, The Pubmed is the right database?

Where i get information about bilingual advocacy for ethnic minority elders? Especially the funding aspect?
I need to read up on minorities in general, including on relevant theories, lessons learned from other contexts throughout history. Middle East examples would be of particular interest.
I am conducting research on minority teachers and wondering what to expect with regards to minorities' attitudes toward other minority groups. Will they be more tolerant? more prejudiced? the same? Can anyone please refer me to some literature on the topic?
In America, more girls are enrolled in colleges and universities than boys. In recent years, the majority of students who are studying at colleges and universities are female, while males are now in the "minority" of college students. I am thinking that maybe this is part of a worldwide pattern. But I do not know and that is why I am posting this question as of December 5, 2019. Thank you in advance for your input!
Within the framework of the purposive sampling phase for a conceptual review on cultural competence in substance use treatment for migrants and ethnic minorities, I'm in search of literature on
- cultural competence
- substance use treatment
- aimed at the target group of migrants and ethnic minorities
Thanks in advance for sharing you work!
One class classification is recommended when class distribution are not equally distributed or when minority classes are rare. Then Equal Error Rate (EER) is the suitable parameters if we use Accuracy then model will not be properly evaluated. Now if the classes are balanced then we can use Accuracy with Sensitivity and Speficity. Yes or no?
I note that you attribute inherent unfairness or abuses of state power (such as the breach of fair trial principles) of what was known as a very sectarian state as the fault of a small minority. As someone well experienced in police abuses and excesses in NI it is not lost on me that you do not give any regard to what 'truth on the ground' might be in nationalist districts and their daily lives? Of course if the threat is exagerated, contrived or even manipulated, as the security forces have a reputation of doing, then you work to secure funding for the same people you are conversing with -and who are judges in their own cause. On that basis your work looks like it will merely contribute to previous politically motivated investigations and analysis as the likes of the now infamous Widery Report.
This question is probably not PC, but the truth rarely is. We read and hear every day about how diversity and multiculturalism is so beneficial for the host society, how we really need it to stay competitive and what not. That we need more and more immigration and tolerance of minorities, and so on, Of course, I am aware of classical urban theorist Simmel and Durkheim, but it is not what I mean. I also do not mean the Weberian urbanization economies. And other sensible positions. What I mean is about today's extreme global diversity and multiculturalism brainwash that really goes beyond any kind of realistic scenarios. As far as I know the answer is 'no', but I am open on this point. I am writing a paper on this and need to be 100% sure.
I have looked at "white racism" research which generally shows up in contexts where there is a majority/minority dynamic. I am looking for racism research particularly directed towards Pakistani community, sometimes including Indians and Bengalis as well. In particular, I want to look at "othering" research focusing on Pakistanis/ browns, and othering by Middle Easterns, Black communities and South East Asians in particular.
Minorities are most vulnerable sections in almost in many states across the globe. The major challeges what they face are challenges i.e. insecurity, lack of development, unemployment, less participation in mainstream political process and social and educational backwardness etc. I believe no democracy can grow up until we will not evolve and engage all segments of our society.
The facist mindset and ultra chuvinism are major drawbacks in our democracies. Tolerance and quality of accomodation are also lacking.
I believe the government must ensure socio, economic and political justice with all section without any barrier. Government must also utilise the methods of inclusion and must stop policies of exclusion.
Particularly, sensitisation is highly required so that minorities could feel that they are also sun of the soils not aliens. I mean government must use every macro and micro method to overcome all challenges faced by minorities.
Dear Peers -
I am looking at factors that determine ethnic staff-diversity in organizations. Do you know of any scales/metrics/formulas that
1) measure the impact of minority promotion (such as recruitment practices) and
2) measure an organization's exposure to the public through media (e.g. Facebook, newspaper ads, blogs etc.)?
The more simplistic, the better. It's meant for exploratory research. Looking forward to your input!
The right not to be evicted for either a building or a piece of land may be rooted in human rights (each human has the right to live at least somewhere - especially if there is no reasonable alternative), customary rights (one may live in a certain area but the rights are not formally registered; yet there may be a legitimate claim for historical and/or traditional reasons) , the right to compensation (if one is expelled from a house or an area forcefully, then there should be at least some form of in-kind or in-cash compensation) and the right to the city and inclusion in planning (living is cities is getting increasingly expensive and exclusive for very rich minorities).
However, in practice, most of such anti-eviction rights are not very strong in the end. Very often eviction still takes place. I am therefore looking for examples of Acts and jurisprudence where anti-eviciton rights have been firmly established and practiced. I would also like to hear your opinion about whether such anti-eviction rights or Acts should exist in the first place.
To be more specific: my goal is to demonstrate that the effects of X1 on Y is not entirely accounted for by attitudes towards various out-groups. The latter items include measures of positivity towards racial/ethnic minorities, stereotype attribution and questions canvassing attitudes on gender-related issues. Including each of these variables individually would leave me with a 'kitchen sink' model of 20+ predictors. As I'm not interested in their effect on Y (they're only included to rule out a competing hypothesis that predicts they account for X1's effect on Y), I thought I could simply the model by combining them into an additive index. None of them are strongly correlated, and their coefficients range from 0.2 to 0.4. Would creating such an index pose any problems for answering my research question? Any help you can provide would be much appreciated. Thanks!
p.s. my sample size is roughly 2,800.
I am interested in evaluating antioxidant properties, but, I have a huge extract library. So, I want to do a first screening assay with DPPH, using only one concentration (the same for all of them) to define the best ones. Which will be the ideal concentration range to do the assay?
It is important to take into account that they are extracts, no pure compounds. So, I don't want to underestimate the metabolites that are minorities in the extracts.
Thank you for sharing your opinion.
I read about this argument from a review paper on controlling defects in semiconductors. The author mentioned that very short carrier lifetimes are needed for fast switching doides and other devices for high-frequency operation. One reason I could think of is that, if minority lifetime is very short, there would be less constraints coming from the minority storage effect (capacitive effect) because minorities were killed by deep defect trapping almost instantly after they travel thru the space charge region. Are there any other reasons?
Research suggests that people from the Black African minorities have the highest incident rates. Diet and lifestyle are some of the primary causes of diabetes type 2, however, these tend to differ according to many factors including background. It has been suggested that interventions led by individuals of the same background with the study groups increases chances of people being able to actually make a change. I'm sure if we are to look at the psychological aspect of it, people tend to be open more to people that they can relate to. Therefore, is it not worth investigating if ethnic-centred educational interventions for Black African diabetics might actually be worth investing in.
I am an undergraduate student and I have to conduct a research in Ecuador soon. My goal is to investigate whether community-based water management (vs. other types of water management) can help reduce inequalities/discrimination of ethnic minorities.
I believe that the best way to see if inequalities have dropped since the installation of this new system is to research the level of inequalities (economical, gender-related...) in a specific town:
-before the system was installed (through interviews and other data)
-after the system has been installed (through interviews)
This would show me how inequalities changed but I guess I would need to compare it to a "best case scenario" where there are no inequalities. I do not know whether I should compare my results to:
-the average values in Ecuador
-a town with similar characteristics but with a different water management system
I do not know whether my research methodology makes sense, I feel a little stuck and would appreciate any help. Thank you!
Other things being equal(Ceteris Paribus), it can be said that types of democratic outcomes possible under majority rule based democracy are normal democratic outcomes and extreme democratic outcomes.…,,,Under normal democratic outcomes the majority view rules, either as a full majority or a partial majority. Under extreme democratic outcomes the true minority view rules, which raises the question, can extreme democratic outcomes take place if there is no chaos?. I think no, what do you think?
There are many studies on bilingualisem and multilingualism cognitive benefits , we have the phenomenon of the new generation of minorities that loose their native language with all the effects that may have in their cognition or damage the non dominant native language during their lifespan bilingualisem
In the USA, the voting results in most presidential elections in recent years have always been nearly equally divided between the two opposite sides. As a result, the election result is determined by a small minority of "swayable" voters.
Ideally it would seem that given the same facts, most thinking people would clearly see which candidate to vote for, with a resulting overwhelming majority decision.
Is the actuality of nearly equal division between liberals and conservatives common in other democracies? Or is this peculiar to the USA with its two-party system?
The astigmatism of the eye ==> some quantic problems.
No one photon can be 5 m wide on the mirror of the Mount Palomar, simply because the geometrical defects of the mirrors limit the size of the real entry pupil to what can really be focused on the quantic absorber of this one photon. The same restriction applies to the photons passing by our pupil, to be absorbed by the retinal in one opsin.
However a category of geometrical defects in the eye cannot be solved by restricting the effective pupil by the Abbe condition, it is astigmatism. No more one focus, but two quasi-focal distances according to two perpendicular directions. However ONE retinal in ONE opsin absorbs the entire photon, it is about 5 to 9 Å wide x 18 Å long, with no depth of field. Even from a far star.
In the Newtonian background of received ideas, such a punctual convergence through an astigmatic eye is just impossible.
As soon as we admit the existence of the absorber in quantum physics (sure, we are a minority to admit it), we are compelled to admit that the astigmatism of the eye modifies the shape and the angles of the aerial Fermat spindle incoming in the eye, to an elliptical cross-section, instead of a circular one. And that, statistically on all photons incoming in an astigmatic eye, that will be absorbed by an opsin, a quantic reaction, a small one.
An experimental testing? No idea. And you? Have you better ideas?
I am planning a small research proposal as a part of one of my masters' units. The broead topic of the proposal is social differences in students' academic achievement. I am interested in investigating whether there is a correlation between peer victimization and Academic achievement, using a test of relationships (Pearson, Spearman, Kendall etc.) The sample will be students from ethnic minority groups. My variables will be peer victimization which will be the independent variable and academic achievement which will be the dependent variable. I was thinking of include race/ethnicity as a third variable but if I do so, I don't know which will be the appropriate test for testing the relationship of all three variables.
Can you spot any drawbacks on the research design or in the Research Question?
Is there any reliable and valid measurement for primary school students' academic achievement?
I would appreciate that, because I am a novice in research.
Much pain has been observed among the Rohingya and the Palestinian populations amid the highly aggressive actions practiced and still ongoing, brings forward a major concern about the efforts spent on Peace Education, especially that many influential figures in Peace Education belong to the countries where the bloody events are ongoing. Do you think that these events will affect "Peace Education" efforts worldwide especially that The Nobel laureate has shocked the world by failing to speak up for persecuted minorities...on one end, and Israeli Peace education supporters are awaited to speak up!!
Can you recommend central articles on internalization of oppression and negative stereotypes/images by minorities?
I am asking because my research is specifically based on minority incarcerated young males ages 13 -23 (first time offenders) to identify what is potentially impacting their academic success ?In addition to, what tools are essential to overcome these barriers?
Teaching and learning about multi-dimensional identity is complex. I attach an article chronicling my own wrestling with this issue in the context of Australian young people and the Australian school curriculum.
But supervising some excellent higher degree research candidates exploring the teaching of identity in other contexts such as Pakistan, Nepal, and international schools around the world has only underlined the complexities. Respect for ethnic, indigenous and religious minority groups is usually extolled in official curriculum documents but often majoritarian views dominate in reality in prescribed textbooks, and there are degrees of 'othering' of in-country minorities or countries that are perceived as different.
It would be great to hear from countries or jurisdictions where you feel that genuine, successful and intelligently nuanced educational practices are in place in relation to teaching about identity.
As a student, I am worry about how the working relationships (worker-supervisors-managers) could be improved in our country if the cross-cultural mentoring and organizational behavior as well as cross-cultural psychology are ignore from the workplace incivility analysis in the organizations that count with a great umber of Hispanic workers and other ethnic minorities
I have attached a simple schematic of this experiment. As you can see, there is a constant current phase in the curve known as storage phase. My question is, why
current is constant during storage phase? I have read in references that during this phase, injected minority carriers (in forward bias) will recombine.
it's OK, but I could not find any convincing answer for my question in related references. I would appreciate if you could kindly help me.
In a survey of 5,000 MBA students, for example, more than half acknowledged that they cheat. Yet only one in twenty, or five percent, of the Deans of the top 100 US Business Schools thought they "might have an academic integrity problem." Moreover, top scholars like Jeffrey Pfeffer of Stanford and Henry Mintzberg of McGill University have described business school MBAs as largely irrelevant and too focused on analysis rather than on people. Finally, despite the fact that more than half of the US population under 18 is now non-Caucasian, American universities have consistently failed to train American-born minorities in doctoral programs -- such as business -- where a 2006 report indicated that 53% of doctoral candidates are minorities but only 5% are Native Americans, American-born Hispanic, or American-born Blacks. . . and the problem is only getting worse.
I am working on a binary text classification with highly unbalanced data. I upsample the minority class by replicating (majority class/ minority class ~34) and use logistic regression.
While tuning for best hyper-parameters I am using crossvalidation with 4 folds. My question is :
Since the cross validator is using replicated dataset, the validation set will have lots of repeated data points.
Will this affect the stability of the best model it returns (using spark)
Is there a better way to handle such scenario?
I ams seeing a lot of variation in precision for different runs.
The membership of any sport organisation is provided by the membership. The skewed representation of sport organisation boards is quite likely as much to do with the structure of the legitimising membership. For example, in clubs, where the membership is made up of individuals, one would expect some degree of reflection of the
