Questions related to Redistribution
I am trying to find topics for my PhD thesis. I am interested in working on Solidarity Economy and income redistribution. Can someone please guide me in this field as to what topics I can research?
The Tigris - Euphrates water conflict is frozen conflict between three riparians (Iraq, Syria and Turkey). The conflict came up because of upstream water projects by Turkey and therefore the restriction of water access to individuals of downstream failed states (Iraq and Syria). There are two principles are conflicting: Territorial sovereignty of Turkey and human right to water of individuals (This is issue of global justice and not international justice due to failed states). My question is: whom belongs water and how property (connected with territory) theory of Locke can be connected to the sovereignty principle of Turkey?
Thank you beforehand
Is it possible to back-calculate/estimate the amount/dosage of a molecule consumed by looking at ante- or post- mortem toxicology blood levels? If you don't know, can you suggest a contact that might know? (I appreciate there will be issues around blood redistribution and site of sampling, etc.)
I have once discussed with my colleague about redistributing questionnaire to get more participants. The case is below:
My colleague was conducting a survey. After particular time of distributing his questionnaire, he found that the total participants was not as he expected. Then, he distributed the questionnaire again to obtain more participants.
Is it possible to distribute a survey instrument several times in order to get more participants?
It is understood that one of the positive effects of periodic crises is the redistribution of income, power and wealth.
Decision makers establish the financing formula to get a transport project built once (ideally) both its efficiency and its financial sustainability have been justified. Whilst it is assumed that the intergenerational redistributive effects arising from the financing structuring of major projects and integrated investment programmes are generationally neutral, outcomes obtained through the intergenerational redistributive effects model (IREM) stress that the distribution of funding and payments burdens for major projects may entail significant negative impacts on the individuals involved. IREM has actually proved its utility to perform intergenerational impact analysis properly, i.e. to analyse to what extend an investment in infrastructure is fair and sustainable from the intergenerational perspective.
I am wondering how to implement RIDWT in Matlab , i found several related papers implementing RIDWT but their description is incomplete . I have tried to convert their equations into Matlab code ... but it doesnt work !
If anyone can provide me with Matlab code of RIDWT or clearer explanations for running RIDWT, I would really be appropriated .
The Investment Redistributive Incentive Model (IRIM).
Tourism holds the hopes of many in creating job opportunities for the masses of the unemployed globally. The poor growth of economies has failed to address the problems of unemployment, poverty and inequality. For growth to be impactful, foreign direct investment is considered one of the sources of the required impetuses. It is possible to incentivize both foreign (direct) and local investments. This paper, which was prepared using secondary sources of information, argues that it is possible to introduce incentives linked to investments in what is posited as the Investment Redistributive Incentive Model (IRIM). The IRIM rewards companies that support local ownership and control of enterprises through an incentive system en route to total liberation/local control of enterprises in whole geographic areas as the ultimate goal. The IRIM uses investment incentives such as tax cuts, breaks or relief as redistributive instruments to effect change through the reconfiguration of the management and ownership structures of companies. IRIM could be applied in any company, large or small, for equity and social justice. Foreign investors could also be linked to educational institutions in relation to facilitating the supply of skilled workers. Redistributive formulas become imperative to avert the various forms of societal dissonance because current trajectories are not sustainable where only a few get rich while the majority remain poor in a world trapped in a capitalistic and narcissistic modus operandi.
The data that I am looking for are for my master thesis, where I am interested in the effect of culture on preferences for redistribution. My main data source is the European Social Survey (ESS), hence countries in my sample are mostly European. I have already explored the databases of the World Bank, Eurostat, OECD and other cross-national ones, but the series I am interested in either come with many missing observations or in most of the cases they start quite late.
If you have encountered something similar as researchers in the past or if you simply know any databases with long historical data on income inequality or unemployment rates, your recommendations will be much appreciated!
Thank you very much in advance!
The Pareto Optimality:
This efficiency criterion was developed by Vilfredo Pareto in his book “Manual of Political Economy”, 1906. An allocation of goods is Pareto optimal when there is no possibility of redistribution in a way where at least one individual would be better off while no other individual ends up worse off.
A state of affairs is Pareto-optimal (or Pareto-efficient) if and only if there is no alternative state that would make some people better off without making anyone worse off. More precisely, a state of affairs x is said to be Pareto-inefficient (or suboptimal) if and only if there is some state of affairs y such that no one strictly prefers x to y and at least one person strictly prefers y to x. The concept of Pareto-optimality thus assumes that anyone would prefer an option that is cheaper, more efficient, or more reliable or that otherwise comparatively improves one’s condition.
As inequality involves substantial economic, social and political costs. The crucial issue of how to measure inequality has been a major challenge. Many existing literature have linked the quality of governance to poverty related crises. It unknown whether political commitment is likely to minimise or magnify the level of inequality or not.
I'm using heavily doped p-type silicon (boron), and i was wondering if there is a dopant redistribution at the surface of the etched substrate.
I was able to find this for wet thermal growth of SiO2, but not for etching silicon.
Any ideas will be much appreciated.
I am currently analysing the processes and sources of sediment in East-African rivers, lakes and floodplains using sediment tracing techniques. However, in all the soil plot samples and floodplain cores, we find a very distinct distribution of Cerium. My study site is located closely to the active carbonatite volcano 'Ol doinyo Lengai'. We are exploring the possibility of the redistribution of Cerium by the volcano, where besides traditional weathering processes (bottom-up from the mother material), the element is periodically infused from the atmosphere following volcanic eruptions giving rise to its peculiar surface distribution and floodplain peaks.
Is there anyone who has observed this behaviour of Cerium (or other elements) in East-Africa or other parts of the world? It would be a great help to me if you could share some of these findings.
With kind regards,
The issue of food waste (FW) in the global context has an in-depth meaning for sustainability. FW is not an exotic topic anymore, nurtured by the scientific community only. It has economic, social and environmental impacts. It has become a wide topic for debates. FW is met throughout all the food supply chain (FSC). At the end of this chain, at the consumption stage, are the households and the restaurants. FW is social misbehaviour. In Europe, FS is the second largest FW producer, with 20% of total production - approx. 25.5 million tonnes, annually. Presently, In Romania, where the research is carried out, there are no studies attesting the existence of FW in the FS, especially in the restaurants.

Understanding some methods and techniques that can form and redistribute green areas in the existing urban areas in Sadr City.
I wonder if I can derivatize (genomic deletions/insertions) commercial E. coli strains (NEB5alpha, Stabl3, etc.) and then distribute the re-engineered strains to other laboratories or more important to culture repositories. Aren't there licensing issues? I simply cannot find an answer to that in the internet.
There are many work safety examples on the need for proper grounding before working on piping to avoid electric shocks.
It is harder to find examples where AC-, or for that matter DC-, ground current flows through piping and excites vibration. One example is where multiple pipes having differences in ground potential share a pipe support, redistribute current and interact.
The problem is multidisciplinary as electricity people rarely measure vibration and vice versa.
Are there any published examples of such a situation?
Like if subjects exercised in hot environment, and as a result, blood flow redistributes to the skin and muscles, which may leave the heart muscles with less blood flow and hence less oxygen. If we measured the heart tissue level of HIF, can this indicate a cardiac dysfunction, though it is a factor of angiogenesis?
