Questions related to Welfare
Anyone Can suggest me Lignin Bio-polymer application and its uses or any research which is currently happening in Lignin Nano-particles or lignin nano-composites materials in human welfare and in drug delivery.
Underdeveloped health systems have many problems and this affects socioeconomic and health unstablity. Even the little industry will stop their work because of economically developed county fight covid and forget give welfare organization.
I would like to write an overview article on nonprofit activities in the German school system: While other fields of action (e.g. social welfare, youth welfare, care for the elderly, culture, sports, ...) are well studied, third sector (nonprofit) research so far lacks studies on the field of action school . In the last 20 years, a broad organizational landscape has been established around schools (e.g., school support associations, mentoring programs, foundations, etc.), which today make up a considerable part of the third sector.
Does anyone have an idea for me where this might fit? It could be a journal or an anthology (German or English).
If anyone can point my to the right direction regarding this question, any industrial sector would be helpful, possibly referencing quantitative or qualitative research in the 21st century. I am only able to find data points and regression analysis in the 20th century. Would like to be able to, compare changes.
Hi everyone! I'm an ethologist, i'm looking for some article that talks about the implication in animal welfare of hands on approach in captivity. I mean...there is some study that had investigated the fact that human-wildlife hands on interaction (cub petting etc) is bad for animals? Both conservation and welfare...
Thanks a lot,
I would like to ask questions related to innovation system. Does innovation system has a relationship/influence with farmer' welfare?If it does, what aspects that should be explored to explain this relationships? And if it does not bring any impacts what possible cause? Do you have any suggestion what theory/literatures that I can read to answer this question? Thank you so much
We conduct research on domestic animals and birds behavior is to improve welfare. We study the housing enrichment different of feeding system etc using continuous videos which generate huge data. How do we analyze it by automated software?
Theory and practise of welfare state is not the same as of welfare society's. What is the difference between these two concepts?
I have some in my farm and the welfare conditions are optimal. I have trimmed their beaks, give them fresh feeds and water regularly.
In this situations of carona pandemic what would be the role of Nutrition and nutritionists to combat this ?? Plz enlight if some approches can be made??
Animal welfare meat demand is increasing day by day in market. Normally, animal welfare meat price is higher than non-welfare meat. Some people try to adulterate welfare meat by non welfare meat for their more benefit. So we trying to established a efficient analytical method to distinguish between welfare and non welfare meat in market. Do you have any idea regarding this please give me suggestions.
In this post-millennial world of cosmopolitanism, globalisation, and world literature, one wonders if the present moment isn't the perfect opportunity to take stock of where our interests and priorities lie, what kind of life lessons does a global pandemic have for all of us as a collective entity, and above all how do we respond to something that simply exceeds the limits of any one particular area, region or nation-state? It is also a timely reminder of how we take certain things for granted and in the punishing rush of events, forget to spend quality time with those who matter to us the most, be it family, friends or acquaintances.
Through social distancing, we are paradoxically coming together in an attempt to contain the damage. This is far removed from the world of digital technology and social networking sites where the idea of togetherness also simultaneously exists with a profound sense of boredom, isolation and estrangement. The global economy has come to a veritable standstill and yet for the first time in so many years people are actually realising the merits of altruism and putting the interests of the 'other' before the 'self'. Instant gratification, limited attention span and 'the devil may care' attitude is being decisively supplanted by an increasing concern for the environment, the underprivileged and the future generations.
But above all this crisis is about the dissolution of human pride and an equally important focus on learning humility. It is a reality check to prevent us from taking ourselves too seriously for far too long. The profit-maximising impulse and the fiercely competitive spirit that is now being instilled right from the increasingly commercialised spaces of classrooms to the demanding environs of corporate offices has been rendered frozen by something which is much more pressing, immediate and therefore worthy of attention.
In such a scenario, a moment of pause and reflection never hurts. It gives us a breathing space from the target-oriented lives that we find ourselves in, especially in a country like India where population significantly alters the stakes of job prospects and economic opportunities. And while it is true that the destitute and the daily wage labourers, the rickshaw walas and the domestic helpers bear the worst brunt of this protracted lockdown, it also opens up a rare window of opportunity for those who are in a position of power and privilege to contribute in their own ways toward combating the spectre of hunger and starvation.
Life, as we know it, will never be the same. The haunting memories of these difficult times will always endure while the notion of normalcy and restitution will probably be the most challenging proposition for policy makers. The spirit of resilience and ingenuity that human beings have repeatedly shown right throughout history is for the first time proving to be inadequate. And there lies the rub. An overriding emphasis on empathy which is formed in the crucible of a global crisis could quite easily become a distant memory the moment that threat is successfully diffused.
Self-aggrandisement would once again be at an all-time high. But do we want to spin around in circles and just wait for the next major calamity to once again teach us about wisdom and virtue? Or haven’t we had enough of an eye-opener to realise that it is only by locating oneself in the larger scheme of things and network of relationships that a more desirable and progressive future is possible. To understand this in its proper context, one only needs to imagine a hypothetical situation in which if any pharmaceutical company would have been successful in finding a cure for COVID-19, it would have again been driven by the predictable considerations of personal profit masking itself as public welfare.
So where do we go from here? And how do we reconcile our punishing schedules [an ostensibly stultifying one for many in times of a lockdown] with a profound appreciation for everything precious, beautiful and worthwhile in our lives? What are the bitter truths that we could take in our strides without caring too much about a loss of pride or self-respect? Because after all it is about recognising the priceless merit of the here and now as opposed to the idealistic and the utopian. It is about taking cognisance of both the kids as well as the elderly, the indigent neighbour as well as tenacious doctors and their committed support staff. And last but not the least, it is about practising kindness, compassion, and humility with others that could help us confront our personal demons and eventually exorcise them.
I am very interested in your project. In my Ph.d. I am also focusing on women in vulnerable positions and their cooperation with welfare professionals.
As water is crucial element for all human beings on earth. Due to climate change, water is going to be scarce element on earth. India and Pakistan are two rival states in Asia but on the other hand no-one can negate the importance of water for welfare of population on both sides.
Good feeding and health are the important components for welfare assessment of migratory goats. But which components should be given more emphasis if you have to scored them out of 100 points?
To get an idea about the animal welfare impact of my planned experiments and to perhaps make adjustments in the antibody selection, I was wondering:
- How many mice are sacrificed to obtain 1 mg antibody with ascites method?
- How much FCS is needed to obtain 1 mg antibody expressed in cell culture?
I assume that yields can differ by a few orders of magnitude, but it would still be interesting to know some ballpark numbers.
Animal productive performance, reproductive performance and management practices are recorded separately during on farm welfare assessment.
However, the indicators from these can also be included in the assessment protocol as these can also be scored and can be benchmarked region wise.
If you know of an App that farmers can use to assess the welfare of their pigs (any aspect), please write the name of the App here as comment. Also if not in English. It might be included in a handbook for farmers to improve animal welfare.
Democracy plays pivotal role to ensure the welfare and development of people. It protects basic human rights and liberties. However, democracy needs to be improve as time travels. Therefore, how democracy shall improve or what are the steps to improve democracy? Following are some of the steps we shall adopt to improve democracy. What are the other measures to enhance democracy?
1. By Increasing the role of political parties
2. By increasing Role of Opposition Party
3. By increasing political awareness of people
4. By increasing people centric policies of the govt.
5. By increasing role of civil society
6. By increasing decentralisation of power
7. By improving political participation of people
8. By increasing role of media
9. By increasing literacy
Some welfare assessment protocols have kept BCS in both good feeding principle and good health, while some protocols have put this indicator only in good feeding
In many countries, a ‘welfare chauvinism’ is emerging as a configuration of welfare that restricts access to benefits or lowers the level of benefits for immigrants, ethnic minorities (Andersen and Bjørklund 1990; Schumacher and Van Kersbergen 2016). This configuration of welfare tries to reinforce the social protection of ‘native globalisation losers’ increasing benefits placing less emphasis on individual responsibility, and reducing competition with ethnic minorities on access to health and housing programmes, social assistance.
Now a days almost all governments are bringing populist schemes mainly by giving free goods or at subsidized rate to attract electorate in their favour without focusing income generation by individuals. One of the negative impact of such programs is labour shortage which affects the economy a lot.........
What parameter we can use to assess the feeding welfare of goats besides Body condition scoring, Rumen fill scoring in migratory or pastoral production
Can we use the Latency to the first contact test and Flight distance test that are mentioned in the AWIN protocol to access the H-A relationship in pastoral/transhumance livestock
Education is one of the vital services that a modern state is expected to provide to its people. It is a service that every welfare democracy is obliged to give in the most accessible form. In simple terms, privatization of education refers to the state’s policy of allowing educational institutions, both higher and lower, to be run by non-state or private parties for monetary benefits. In contemporary times, many liberal democratic countries across the world are increasingly trying to privatize this basic service.
Farmers are always in the poverty mostly in the developing world. Their poverty is somewhat getting stacked with their lives despite various schemes & farmer welfare programmes. Could anybody suggest something significant in this direction...??
This morning I wake up to review the Brexit and US-China Trade war. Then, I ponder on the John Maynard Keynes - Harry White debates on proposal to form the world bank group( IMF, WTO, World bank-International Bank for Reconstruction and Development). Then, I extensively review the brain behind formation of ECOWAS, EU among others. Then, I asked: if protectionism was forbidden earlier to improve welfare and offset balance of payment deficits. why now?
The first step is to argue the existence of a "front line" in the health care work environment. However, this is challenging as there does not appear to be a clear definition of what constitute a health care work environment. Current literature is overwhelmingly focusing on the providers and their welfare.
1. Tell me the impact of social media in your life.
2. can you think or live without social media in present era.
3. Does its a tool for better life and socail impact.
4. Doest it is a weapon for destroy your life and disconnect with family.
5. how frequent have you been seen your mobile for new arrivals.
6. social media really helpful for education, health and welfare of society.
How do health systems work on five continents? How much does it cost to be treated in the hospital and what public or private coverings are available to the citizen? As you certainly know, there are different health systems in the world, some oriented towards absolute welfare and, apart from limitations such as the inclusion of a ticket charged to the citizen and / or the classification of basic levels of fixed assistance for all, they are free for all while other systems are based on the payment of private insurance coverage. Here we want to know which system you prefer and, possibly, why.
Hi all I'm a final year student and studying about the relationship between ageing population and welfare effect. Though I looked for many articles still couldn't find proper econometrics based article to follow as my based study. If anyone interest on this topic or know about econometrics analysis with ageing population and welfare effect, please send me. Your favor is highly appreciated for my further studies. Thank You.
The current immigration system actually goes a long way to addressing both liberal and conservative concerns.
For the liberal, thousands of people cross the southern border and gain access to decent jobs, schooling, and an economy that provides endless goods more cheaply than anywhere else in the world. They improve their lives by coming here
For the conservatives, keeping the "guise" of "illegality" in place while not really doing a lot to keep immigrants out allows for armies of hard workers to enter the country, contribute to society, pay taxes, while being reluctant to sign up for too many welfare programs. Thus, they improve America by being here.
Any solution that goes much further in letting in more migrants "legally" will upset the conservatives, and any action that is really effective at "keeping them out" will anger the liberals.
SO THE CURRENT SYSTEM - INSTEAD OF BEING "BROKEN" - MAY IN FACT BE THE BEST COMPROMISE WE CAN COME UP WITH!!
This general background suggests a simultaneous increase in minimum wages and tax increase has severe implication on citizen welfare. Colleagues what is your thought on this argument.
Now im working on research "effect of household welfare on migration desicion: The case of Kyrgyzstan", where i schould measure household income in rural agricultural place. Taking into account that in such place income could be also in natural form, i want to know what should i include into calculation of income within rural/agricultural land.
Government plays a key role in a country’s economic and social development. Not having as a primary objective to make profit, public sector entities seek to effectively provide goods and services that improve and maintain the citizens' welfare level. Unlike private sector companies which generate a measurable stream of profit and revenue, the measurement of government performance is harder and more complex. A General Government Performance Index was developed through relevant sources (World Bank, WGI/WDI, Social Progress Index, the Global Competitiveness Index, etc). I am looking for useful answer(s) on the factors that could government performance.
Please I would like to determine the optimal monetary policy rule with dynare for my DSGE model, but I don't know how to do it. I don't know the commands to determine the optimal monetary policy.
Can someone tell me how to do it? Or suggest me some commands or a code I can use as a guide? And how to get the welfare value (value of loss function).
In addition, what if I want to determine the optimal monetary policy rule and the optimal macroprudential policy rule simultaneously.
Platforms are disrupting the welfare model based on an economy where labour was regulated. The current "laissez faire" attitude, or just simply a lack of motivation to regulate these industries of some political elements, has created an environment of labour insecurity. that being said, how can the Welfare State evolve to meet this challenge?
Hello everyone, I am working on a paper which requires evaluating recent policy changes on the welfare of the people. I have decided to do partial equilibrium analysis, because: I am working on a single commodity market. However, I really can not get any tool to run my observations. Please can you help recommend a tool and help me understand partial equilibrium better.

Libertarianism pursues the goal of individual freedom limited only by the immediate harm done to other individuals. But it does not consider the ultimate harm that may be done to others. In biology, to study a phenomenon, one considers not only the proximate causes, but (as a requirement for complete understanding) also the ultimate causes. The same should apply to a rigorous analysis of political-economic philosophies. Friedrich Hayek and Ayn Rand (among others?) seem to serve as the intellectual underpinnings for Libertarianism and other similar rightwing leaders, such as Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, and Charles Koch). But when it comes to questions of the general welfare it seems ta have a gaping hole. If this is so, this hole should be exposed.
- Traditionally we use resource based criteria (Housing facilities, feeding facilites) for evaluating the welfare of animals in smallholder production system.
- How can we use behaviour for assessing the animal welfare in small holder production system?
The government of every country and state bring policies and schemes for the welfare of society and the nation. These governments implement policies and schemes through their departments and sometimes they assess them with either own departments OR external agencies. This assessment process has nothing to do with:
‘What new theories are evolving while implementing the scheme or policy?
Why the existing theories or not working while implementation or in it’s impact?
Why global findings are not matching?
What are the initial flaw in terms of conceptualization of the policy or scheme? ‘ etc…
In the entire process from policy or scheme conceptualization to implementation, the concerned government department or agency does not see a possibility of theorizing a phenomenon or identifying a theoretical relationship with field-level data. And they assume, ‘it is not their job’.
So whose job is this? Is this a researcher’s job who is either in a doctoral course or post-doctoral assignment, a faculty who is studying public policies/schemes or a consultancy firm who reads/analyzes the data and based on the analysis floats some project?
As a teacher, I see students struggling while exploring their research areas – either for their doctoral dissertation, post-doctoral research or a research paper. They explore with zeal and confidence by reviewing the existing literature – mostly referring research articles published in top-tier journals, but these researchers have no interest in studying the Public Policies or schemes with a view to understanding theoretical grounding of policy or schemes.
Why they do not see this as an opportunity for research? I think these researchers assume that ‘understanding a policy or schemes in not academic job’. If this is that assumption, I do not agree with that.
In fact, data on these policies and schemes are available to any researcher who wants to study. Most importantly – concerned government department or agency will be happy in supporting them since these arms of government would learn significant findings of the policy they implemented and would know what kinds of policies and schemes be required in the country.
In a true sense, this kind of attempt by a researcher would help the government and country in a bigger way.
Clinicians often have to miss meals, are under hydrated and have inadequate sleep. Shifts, long hours, poor culture towards staff welfare and human Factors and unsatisfactory on site amenities may place clinicians in vulnerable and less than ideal circumstances for providing the best patient care and ensuring personal health. Decreased cognitive function and mental health are associated with a failure to account for Human Factors for clinicians.
I am currently doing my masters thesis on factors influencing jury decision making. I am desperately looking for research participants; as fellow researchers you know that getting help from the public is challenging. If you would please take some time out of your day to help that would be wonderful. All ethics procedures have been followed of course and the research is no-risk and confidential. You can do the research if you live in England and if you qualify to serve on a UK jury. please follow one of the two links below depending on whether you are religious or non-religious (atheist/agnostic):
I am looking for ways to measure respondents' general concern for human right and concern for animal rights/welfare. The construct I am interested in is similar to that of environmental concern but with two different foci.
I would appreciate any suggestions/pointers/ideas about scales or other ways to measure them?
As the educated people are working and involve in research. Now to use research for a better world what and how the researcher can contribute.
There are a lot of differences between protocols! Do you have any experience with or insights into the following:
Food and/or water deprivation: Why do some protocols only say water deprivation over night and not food also? You would think that food stuff in the stomach would slow the uptake.
Fasting time: How much time is really necessary? There are relatively large welfare and stress issues with fasting, and some protocols say up to 9 hours (overnight). Others say 4-6 hours. And there is a difference between starving during the night, where they do most eating, and starving during early morning/day, where they do not eat anyway. so is it ok to starve them in the morning (food)?
I'm looking for a data set for my master's thesis. The research question is not yet defined and will depend on the data available. I would like either to look at the welfare effects from working in the garment industry or the effects of working conditions on workers or on the factories. I really appreciate all kind of suggestions.
I'm looking for bibliography on food, physical, social enrichment, etc, to use in foxes in recovery, with the intention of released them into their natural habitat.
See the weight of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Ministry of India , look at for agroforestry policy . Perhaps India is first nation to define here's agroforestry policyLearned members of FB are requested to go through that and decide if such policy will bring change in agroforestry research and development . Regards to one and all .
Do we really live in real Welfare States? Is the word "welfare" correctly understood by society? What is the real welfare: material or personal? Does this problem could be studied by using cinema as a main source?

I am interested to interpret percentile ratios. I have calculated Gini coefficient. Stata also shows me distribution of income by considering the ratios of different percentages of population ? In Country A poverty is increased. However, inequality is decreased.
2015 (in this year poverty decreased)
Gini=0.43 p90/10=7.588 P90/P50=2.528 P10/P50=0.333 P75/P25=2.649
2017 (poverty increased)
p90/10=8.066 p90/50=2.661 p10/50=0.330 p75/25=2.545
p90/p10 = it compares top 10% to bottom 10%. I see that ratio is increased. Can I make any conclusions about the welfare of the population?
Today we are told that Britain has agreed there will be 'continued regulatory alignment' between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
What does this mean?
It is not the same as saying NI will remain in the Customs Union and the Single Market. It may not even be the same as saying 'no regulatory divergence'.
But it is hugely significant I think. Unless it is prepared to accept regulatory divergence between NI and Britain then it must continue aligned with EU rules on food safety, animal welfare, medical drugs etc.
But what about labour and environmental standards? Is Britain now precluded from the 'race to the bottom' the Brexiteers wanted?
I would be interested in international opinion on this development
There is a strong need of producing Dr. Bhabha like trained , skilled, innovator, honest, scientific and technologists leaders worldwide , who can really advocate and warrant the real peaceful diverse applications of Nuclear energy programs for the welfare of common human well being world wide.
This will be a great tribute to Dr. Homi Bhabha on his birth day.
DAE is a pioneer organization of the country and people must respect the healthy norms for the growth of science, growth of the organization and development of the country- yes, It will be greatest tribute and remembrance to Dr HOMI BHABHA. FRS .
It is very unfortunate that SCIENTIFIC MISCONDUCTS AND FRAUDS have started in AMD/DAE since the last 10 years. It will be a greatest tribute to Investigate and Cancel all such Fraud DAE AWARDS and NATIONAL GEOSCIENCE AWARDS-2011 and 2016 , etc, - awarded in the last decade (10 years) to AMD- TOP OFFICERS.

In the 1950s, many Latin American countries experienced pro-poor reforms implemented by populist parties, like the Justicialist Party in Argentine, the Revolutionary Nationalist Movement in Bolivia, and the Brazilian Labour Party.
So can I say that the 1950s is a "golden age" for Latin America in terms of welfare and development?
Need information regarding various national and international organisations and institutions interlinked to captive animals role and functioning.
What are the instruments and measures existed to measure the Global Leadership Styles?
In order to categorize the leadership style for the current and old-world leaders, but not to evaluate them. the project intends to investigate the impact of the leadership style on people life, using the countries leaders and the welfare scale in each country.
The attainment of sustainability requires adherence to some important aspects like human welfare, natural resource management, economic development, food and energy security and environmental sustainability. How Green Chemistry can address these concerns for a sustainable future of the planet Earth.
Because of a review I need to deepen my knowledge of the so called "crowding out" literature. Any suggestions about the most relevant contributions?
The idea behind is that welfare arrangements can undermine less formalizes solidarity practices (religious communities in my case).
thank you for your suggestions!
Quite often in environmental-economic literature (e.g. The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity) welfare theory is used to calculate the supply of "ecosystem services" in "natural capital accounting" (NCA)?
I am interested in literature which views ecosystems in different ways, especially from a "network" perspective. For example, a food web or food chain seem to me to have network structures. Do you have any suggestions about the most important references in this field?
I have a household data that contains consumption expenditure items like food I terms, fuel, etc. and their associated price data. From these data, I calculating household welfare so I need adult equivalent index and price to adjust for household compositions and purchasing power. Thus, I need someone to assist me on how to construct household price index
GDP is not a perfect measure of well-being, and development has other aspects beyond economic growth. This is why there are other approaches to the welfare of an economy such as the Human Development Index (HDI) or Gross National Happiness (GNH).
On the one hand the dependence of GDP to indicate welfare of an economy and growth is becoming an outdated concept, but on the other hand iterature is abundant of the term “growth”, besides the concept of socio-economic development.
I just wonder if we can model socio-economic development by using a growth model and a development index. I know there are some "unnamed" assumptions behind the growth models and they may not allow us to do that. Is there a way?
