Crowdsourcing Techniques in Call Centers Dissertation

… [EXCERPT] . . . promising phenomenon that lends itself to call centers' ability to improve their own and their other business units' efficiency is the employment of crowdsourcing. Crowdsourcing is an online, distributed problem-solving and production model already in use by for-profit organizations such as Threadless, iStockphoto, and InnoCentive. Speculation in Weblogs and wisdom of crowds theory assumes a diverse crowd engaged in crowdsourcing labor. Crowdsourcing is the act of taking a job traditionally performed by a designated agent (usually an employee) and outsourcing it to an undefined, generally large group of people in the form of an open call. Furthermore, and as crowdsourcing is in some ways similar to open-source software production, prior research suggests that individuals in the crowd likely participate in crowdsourcing…. [read more]

Artificial Intelligence What Is AI? Term Paper

… It has yet to impress the people that really count: financial officers, corporate treasurers, and the like. This is quite understandable, however; who is willing to sink money into a system that they do not understand? Until a track record is set for chaos, most will be unwilling to try, but to gain the track record, someone has to be the first to attempt to understand 'it'; the "catch-22."

The chaos theory can be useful in other places, as well. Kazuyuki Aihara, an engineering professor at Tokyo's Denki University, claims that chaos engineering can be applied to analyzing heart patients. The pattern of the beating heart changes slightly and each person's pattern is different (Ono 41).

Considering this discovery, a Japanese data processing company has…. [read more]

Creative Powers it Is a Fact Term Paper

… Creative Powers

It is a fact that the society in which we live will never be truly free in all areas of life. Indeed, it has been suggested by some that total freedom would result in anarchy, and that rules are necessary in order to ensure a civilized society. On the other hand, too little freedom would hardly be conducive to creativity in any sense of the word. It would therefore be useful to what degree freedom within society, in terms of the law, culture, education, politics, and other influences, relates to individual and collective creativity in the same society.

Freedom in Society

Freedom is a very wide concept, and difficult to define. It means different things to different individuals and different societies. If Hayek's…. [read more]

Treatment of Women Diagnosed With Dysthymia Term Paper

… Treatment of Women Diagnosed With Dysthymia

This proposal for a clinical case study of the treatment of a woman diagnosed with dysthymia employs a cognitive behavioral approach to identifying effective treatment modalities for patients with depressive disorders. In cognitive behavioral sessions, psychotherapists seek to help a patient identify his or her harmful thinking patterns in order to develop better coping strategies and social skills. The focus of the research in this study is on how people in general think, behave, and communicate in the present rather than on their early childhood experiences.

Foundationally Promising Research Discoveries of the Twentieth Term Paper

… ¶ … foundationally promising research discoveries of the twentieth century is Stem Cell Biology. Only announced as a possible scientific breakthrough in late 1998, significant research has begun on stem cells, yet even the announcement of the potential benefits by the National Academy of Science that comes with the then recent isolation of human stem cells did little to curb potential controversy and conflict.

Shannon 9)

Within the recent elections the issue of stem cell research has come to the forefront of consideration by voters, experts, opponent groups and proponent groups. The most substantial challenge to the recent federal rulings against stem cell research, by the Bush administration, is the passing of proposition 71 in California, which will create, and fund a 3 billion dollar….

Corruption Anti Dissertation

… This is used more in a medical sense, but it lends itself to the discussion at hand because the people who become corrupted were not always that way (as would be the case with a genetic predisposition to corruption), but they became corrupted because of the atmosphere in which they lived. This means that the political atmosphere in which Tsang and Tang found themselves allowed the corrupting influence, rather than there being some corrupting gene which they inherited. This is important because the corruption that happens often seems to be a character flaw that is natural to the person. The truth is that many people who might otherwise have been honest and straight forward their entire lives, somehow fall into situations that foster corrupt behavior.…. [read more]

Eastern Religion, Eastern Mysticism Term Paper

… And the magic and wizardry in the stories is something of a story in itself.

The popularity of the movies, in particular, can be attributed to the American pop culture's love of magic, and mystery, and characters that can fly and have powerful magic potions and spells in their bags of tricks. But with that love of magic by the movie-going pop culture in America, there has come some criticism.

Jacobs point out that there are people in his midst, Christians, ("some of whom are dubious...") who believe that the movie "makes magic so funny and charming" that it is disturbing. The movies and books "don't exactly support the Christian view of things," he writes. "Such novels could at best encourage children to take a…. [read more]

Kierkegaard vs. Camus Essay

… Kierkegaard vs. Camus

In the historical spectrum of what is known as existential philosophy, Kierkegaard and Camus occupy relatively distant ends. Their thinking, however, tends to more alignment. They both situated the individual in a perilous state of existence, whereby that individuality is more of a constant threat than a given. When integrated into a phenomenological examination, the idea of the individual posited by both thinkers yields a rich conception of the will as a motivating factor in all human existence. Additionally, combining and problematizing their ideas about the individual reveals a greater understanding of the individual's environment.

In the interest of a fuller analytic of human existence, Kierkegaard's fundamental conception of dread, and Camus's conception of the absurd will be examined here for greater…. [read more]

Online Education Term Paper

Online Learning vs. Traditional (in-Class) Learning

Whether students prefer online learning or in-class learning largely depends on many factors, including how much socialization a student is looking for and whether he or she is happy with the commute and the classroom setting. Some students also go back to college after having been in the workforce for some time, and when this takes place the individuals who do this may feel uncomfortable in a classroom full of much younger peers. These students may also have children and/or aging family members that they have to take care of, and this can prohibit how much time they can spend away from home. Some of these people are also still working, and they do not want to…. [read more]

Contemporary Documentary Term Paper

… Independent Contemporary Documentary Films

Journalism seems to have strayed from its early history of working a story towards the presentation of unbiased facts. At the beginning of Operation Freedom, the invasion of Iraq by U.S. military forces, George W. Bush and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, offered press reporters the opportunity to embed with the invading troops, to cover the war from as inside a position as they could possibly hope to achieve in reporting the events and action of the invasion of Iraq. For a moment, President Bush and Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld were the media darlings of the day; touted as pro-freedom seekers. Their pro-freedom stance was, of course, evidenced by the fact that journalists covering the war were now not just riding…. [read more]

Dream Content as Therapy: Ego vs. Repression Dissertation

… For example: a parent has repeating nightmares, and the child "dreams his dreams " because the child is in a psychic resonance with the parent. The child's dreams end when the parent's does. Four, it might be a repetition of a past traumatic event in current lifetime. For example: a person might dream of a recent rape, a childhood assault or a wartime battle. This type of nightmare is so deeply etched in the psyche that it can require heavy use of behavioral dream-work techniques to modify the content and emotional intensity.

A fifth factor could be that the dream is a depiction of a past or probable life. For example: a client might dream the last events prior to a violent…. [read more]

Protestant Devotion to the Virgin Mary Dissertation

… Protestant Devotion to the Virgin Mary

One of the most controversial topics in religion today is how one should answer the question: does Mary play a significant role in modern Protestant religion? The answer to this question begets several ancillary questions, the most important one being: if Mary does not play a significant role in modern Protestant religion, is this an error? In short, is there a need for a more significant place for Mary in present Protestant liturgical traditions? Some experts believe that giving Mary a more prominent role in the practice of Protestantism would endanger the very nature of Protestantism by introducing an intermediary between God and worshippers. Others disagree vehemently with such statements and suggest that embracing Marian devotion may be the…. [read more]

Social Media Marketing in Serbian Tourism Industry Thesis

… To help the industry achieve this aim, strategic marketing plays a substantial role. While there are various components of this strategy, the one that stands out in the Digital Era is the use of social media. How do travelers to Serbia use social media to plan their trips? How do organizations in the tourism industry use social media to appeal to consumers? Understanding the way in which these two groups view the phenomenon of social media usage can help to enable a deeper understanding of how social media can be used as a component in Serbian tourism's market strategy as well as the marketing strategy of tourist and hospitality organizations around the world.

To date, some organizations within the tourism industry are…. [read more]

The effect of the credit crunch on UK residential property: Is there an opportunity for the buy-to-let?

The economic crisis which emerged within the American real estate sector has expanded throughout the world and it has even come to impact the residential real estate sector in the United Kingdom. The manifestation here is however different, due to elements of particularity, namely the housing crisis and the national dependence on the real estate industry. In this context however, a new opportunity is identified, that of buy-to-let purchases, which are however only perceived as a temporary interest and opportunity for investors.

"Great music is in a sense serene; it is certain of the values it asserts."

-Rebecca West (Simpson)

Contrary to the consensus some students purport, a thesis does not constitute a torture tactic designed by professors to traumatize students. In fact, according to Teitelbaum (1), "The thesis paper, when carefully assigned and conscientiously done, has definite value." Professors usually assign the thesis paper as a major component of a course requirement. The researched…. [read more]

Salman Rushdie Term Paper

… Given the subject matter of the book, this aspect has garnered criticism from others.

Rushdie's portrayal of India and Indian's might be seen as guilty of stereotyping in his use of magic realism and the implication that India can only be described in terms of disunity, fantasy and irrationality, precisely those terms used by the orientalists to 'keep the natives down' (Myers, 1996).

Another scholar writes a]lthough he writes about his native land, he carefully abstracts its features and makes them exotic, as if to reflect the uncomfortable similarities between himself and an adventurer stationed in London selling Oriental wares to a public whose tastes he knows from several decades of travel (Brennen, 1989).

There is no arguing about the existence of this postmodern element…. [read more]

Genesis History or Myth? Term Paper

… Research began to notice that Genesis is divided into sections by phrases that are translated literally into "These are the generations of..," much in the same style as the clay tablets described by Wiseman. Early researchers mistakenly believed that these phrases signaled the beginning of a passage, however, the old texts placed these phrases at the end. It is therefore likely that in Genesis, these phrases signal the end of a passage, rather than the end (Sewell, 1994). The most prominent place that supports this idea is in Genesis 37:2, which begins "These are the generations of Jacob...." From that point forward the text describes Joseph and his brothers and almost nothing about Jacob. The story of Jacob is the theme of the previous section…. [read more]

Herbert Spencer vs. Andrew Carnegie Vies Term Paper

… Herbert Spencer vs. Andrew Carnegie

Social Darwinism is a clear attempt to build a case for the separation of the masses from wealth, a justification of the idea that some will have much while others will barely get by, based not entirely on their actions but on some sort of predisposition to success and/or limited success. It is not to say it is racist or classist, but it does clearly lean in that direction. The survival of the fittest determines the winners and/or losers at the end of the game, but it is by a plan that is produced by nature, not by man, hence predisposition. The philosophies of the social Darwinists lean in the direction of the apologists, as if there is some guilt…. [read more]

Pedagogic Model: Teaching Technology in Special Education Dissertation

… " (Dougiamas, 1998) Such trivial constructivism, though, is the bedrock from which Glaserfelds more radical constructivism springs. He continues to state that because knowledge is constructed by the learner, and because no two learners are the same, knowledge itself is not absolute. There is a degree to which knowledge is an illusion, and every individual constructs their own conception of reality which (while susceptible to the demands of "real" or normal reality) does not necessarily align with the normal paradigm. Constructivism does embrace this relativistic and existential approach to reality, but it also holds as a primary value the idea of constraint which enables the thinkers to participate in social interaction and mainstream reality. (Glasersfeld)

One interesting area of constructionist theory is…. [read more]

Leisure May Be the Death Term Paper

… The most obvious, as pointed out by Muller, is a common commitment to a free market economy and to political democracy, both of which are dominated by middle class values. However, there are vital differences within these broad areas of agreement, and it is these deviations that place Europe at a disadvantage when dealing with the demise of employment and the growth of leisure. America is better placed to deal with these social changes, and the subsequent economic and political fallout, because of its emphasis upon individualism, commercialism, and its perception of state assistance only as a last resort. Therefore America, as with Japan, is better able to adapt to changes in labor requirements by capitalizing on the social and economic values of competition, individual…. [read more]

How Has Richmond VA Been Impacted by the Recession Research Proposal

… ¶ … Richmond VA been impacted by the Recession

At issue here is the recession, and what it is doing to the town of Richmond, Virginia. Like many big cities and little towns throughout the country today, Richmond is suffering. it's difficult for people to pay their mortgages, and businesses are going under. Some of this is happening because of what are called 'intertemporal choices.' Intertemporal choices are things that have benefits and costs that are not immediate. They are spread out over time, and they are important. Often times, these are fairly common choices such as whether to have children, or which house to buy. Obviously, these are choices that have long-term implications.

Children are a lifetime investment, and a house is often a…. [read more]

Predatory Lending and the Subprime Mortgage Crisis Seminar Paper

… Predatory Lending and the Subprime Mortgage Crisis

The issues with subprime mortgages are recognized by now, with many evasions and consequences for businesses and financiers in a similar way. A lot of writers have been swift to charge what they call hungry, predatory lenders who oppressed poor, simple and uneducated borrowers. This is expected for the reason that lenders have been blamed of many comparable sins in earlier periods. For instance, the uproar following the printing of Apgar et al. (2006)

, which has been extensively deduces as proof of racial bigotry, is renowned. So far other explanations of the data exist, with Elliehausen & Staten (2004) being a well-known case in point.

Religious Group's Statement William James Term Paper

… "

Those very Israelites, according to the article in the Economist which paraphrases the Book of Mormon, "split into two tribes, the fair-skinned Nephites and the dark-skinned Lamanites." In good time, the Nephites "were wiped out, but the Lamanites survived," the Economist article continues; and the Lamanites became the Native Americans who were encountered by the westward expanding European colonists to America.

A devout Mormon professor, Thomas Murphy, meantime, "has suggested this is nonsense, landing himself in very hot water," the article explains. Verifiable DNA evidence (e.g., scientific evidence, which Kaufman alluded to earlier as provable, unlike religious "truths") has shown, Thomas Murphy explained in a published article, that Native Americans are descendants of Asians, not Mediterranean peoples. Therefore, the LDS assertions are false, he…. [read more]

Jesus' Christian Life, Prayer, and Teachings Dissertation

… Prayer brings redemption. Solomon averred that as soon as he asked for Wisdom, it was bestowed upon him. David, similarly, was given fortitude through the Spirit of God (Psalms 118, 131). Every martyr obtained strength to resist tyrants, and overcame dangers and death through prayer. The above are all examples of this "communication" with God in the true spirit of how Prayer was intended.

St. John Chrysostom weighs in again: "He who uses this great weapon knows not death, leaves the earth, enters heaven, and lives with God. He falls not into sin; he loses affection for the earth; he makes his abode in heaven; and begins, even in this life, to enjoy the conversation of God. How then can you disquiet…. [read more]

Forecasting Terrorism Major Trends Term Paper

… Forecasting Terrorism

Major Trends in Terrorism in Recent Years

According to Raphael Perl, three major trends can be distinguished in terrorism: an increase in micro-actors, an increase in sophistication of terrorist activities, and an overlap of terrorism with international crime. In terms of the first, the increase in micro-actors is the result of a combination of different elements. Firstly, access to data relating to terrorist activities and ideologies has become much simpler than it had been in the past. The Internet and Arabic language television for example have acted as vehicles for information relating to terrorism. Furthermore, militant preachers can also spread their information much more easily via various media. As such, those who are susceptible to the terrorist idealism, are easily influenced by these….

Comprehensive Study of Offshore Financial Centers and Their Effects on Global Economy Dissertation

… ¶ … Offshore Financial Centres and Their Effects on Global Economy

The past 3 decades or so have witnessed the proliferation of offshore financial centres that have drawn both criticism and praise for their cumulative effect on the global economy. These offshore financial networks included 36 jurisdictions by the end of the 1970s that involved three main types of geographical locations, inland enclave states, coastal enclave states and island states. The enclave states have established a global pattern of so-called satellite clusters that are compatible with four main business time zones with linkages to the major global and regional capital markets. The Western Hemisphere is generally served through the New York epicenter by the Caribbean and the Central American Basin; European enclaves, coastal enclaves and…. [read more]

Cell Phone as an Electronic Term Paper

… In fact, DoCoMo's plans are seen as perhaps becoming the first step towards a low rent version of one of computer science's biggest dreams: ubiquitous computing or the promised "third wave" in which networked computers merge seamlessly into the human environment.

Of course, the ultimate dream for ubiquitous computing is a scenario where office worker's refrigerators scan themselves every afternoon to see whether they have any milk, and when workers get into their cars, their phones automatically call their houses, which respond with "buy milk" reminders. Although DoCoMo's current plans are nowhere near that ultimate dream, their new cell phone system is seen as a first step because it aims to replace the consumer's wallet: "All the credit cards, loyalty cards, keys, money - all….
