Mediando informações : diferentes suportes para as leituras da UNATI-Marília /

Paiva, Simone Borges. January 2009 (has links)
Orientador: Oswaldo Francisco de Almeida Júnior / Banca: Maria Cândida Soares Del Masso / Banca: Edmir Perrotti / Resumo: Investigamos em que medida as ações de mediação da informação e de leitura podem influenciar na aceitação de novos suportes de informação por parte dos idosos. Este foi um dos pressupostos tratados por esta pesquisa. Para tanto foi discutido a forma como o sujeito conhece e como interage com o mundo. Assim, percebemos a construção de conceitos acerca dos sujeitos, neste caso, os idosos e como eles podem ter sua vida influenciada pela reconstrução do seu papel social. A leitura e as ações de mediação perpassam por todos os contextos descritos na pesquisa, assegurando que, independente do suporte informacional, é a ação do sujeito que determina o papel do suporte no grupo e na comunidade. Assim, entendemos que os suportes atuam como atratores iniciais, mas que são suprimidos pelos processos criativos que emergem a partir da ação coletiva dos sujeitos / Abstract: We investigate to what extent the actions of mediation of information and reading can influence the acceptance of new media information to the elderly. This was one of the conditions treated by this research. Thus, we discussed how the subject knows and how it interacts with the world. Thus, we see the construction of concepts about the subject, in this case, the elderly and how they can have their lives affected by the reconstruction of its social role. Reading and the actions of mediation permeate all the contexts described in the research, ensuring that regardless of informational support, is the individual's action that determines the role of the support group and community. Thus, we believe that the media act as attractors stages, but are suppressed by the creative processes that emerge from the collective action of individuals / Mestre

Information, systems and water management : Information systems which support water management - cases from rural water supply in Uganda and WFD implementation in the North Baltic River Basin District, Sweden

Quin, Andrew January 2012 (has links)
Successfulwater management implies tackling multi-level governance and improvingintegration between sectors. Sound information and related processes will berequired to support water management decision-making at these various levels.Additionally, considering Principle 10 of the UN’s Agenda 21, actors shouldhave access to information to enable their involvement in shaping watermanagement outcomes. This thesis draws on the results of two separate caseswhere information systems support action: (i) rural water supply in Uganda;and, (ii) water management according to the Water Framework Directive in Sweden.A research approach was formed based on: (a) a model conceptualising how informationsystems support organisational processes which lead to action; and, (b) asystems-thinking methodology. The results reveal that there are numerous,similar challenges to achieving information support for action in both theUgandan and Swedish cases. In both cases, information quantity and quality islimited; consequentially, the use of information to support action is inhibited.Furthermore, not all actors are involved in information system processes; in particular,local-level actors. Overall, there is limited support of strategic decision-makingand weak support of operational, or local, decision-making. The results suggestthat it might be possible to tailor strategic-level information processes tolocal needs, hopefully encouraging active involvement of local actors. Improvedinvolvement, together with a suitable systems approach, could be used to furtherdevelop information systems, improving integration between multiple levels ofgovernance and across sectors – suiting not just the needs ofstrategic decision-making but also the needs of operational, or local,decision-making. / QC 20120822

Military influence tactics: Lessons learned in Iraq and Afghanistan / Lessons learned in Iraq and Afghanistan

Wolfe, Andrea 03 1900 (has links)
xi, 48 p. : ill. (mostly col.) / For most influence attempts in everyday life, success makes life easier and failure is a disappointment, not a tragedy. When U.S. soldiers deployed overseas attempt to influence civilians, however, success can save lives and failure can be deadly. Along with the high stakes consequences of influence attempts, soldiers face the challenges of bridging differences in language, culture, beliefs, and agendas. The current study examined cross-cultural influence attempts made by deployed soldiers, contributing to existing influence research by examining influence attempts in a complex and challenging wartime environment. Survey data from 228 military personnel with deployment experience to Iraq and Afghanistan revealed that empathy, respect, prior relationships, and familiarity with influence targets predicted success. Five influence technique clusters emerged, and use of technique clusters involving resources and positive feelings were more successful than negative tactics. / Committee in charge: Dr. Holly Arrow, Chairperson; Dr. Gordon Hall, Member

Konstruktion av en databas till stöd för kassaflödesvärdering : Construction of a database to support information management for discounted cash flow valuation of corporations

Algotsson, Daniel January 2005 (has links)
<p>När en kassaflödesvärdering genomförs prognostiseras företagets värde genom att summera framtida kassaflöden och diskontera dem med företagets kapitalkostnad. På grund av att prognostiserade kassaflöden är uppskattningar inför framtiden karaktäriseras en värdering alltid av hög osäkerhet. Till underlag för prognoserna används en omfattande mängd information. För att ett tillförlitligt värde ska kunna beräknas är det viktigt att relevant och pålitlig information samlas in och hanteras på ett effektivt sätt. I dagsläget är det problematiskt att hantera omfattande mängder information och ett tillräckligt datorstöd saknas.

Möjligheter som databasen ger upphov till är bland annat en förenklad härledning av företagets prognostiserade värde. Vidare kan en större mängd information lagras och hanteras i samband med värderingen. En databas kan också skapa en högre grad av flexibilitet och möjlighat att anpassa värderingen till företagets specifika dynamik. Det finns också möjlighet att lättare identifiera företagets risker och hur riskerna påverkar kassaflödena.

Logistické procesy a jejich optimalizace / Logistic process optimization

Machová, Marie January 2008 (has links)
Managing the process of a product's development prior to its release is the dominant theme of this graduation thesis. In today's modern turbulent world, businesses compete to be a strong force in the market arena. From start to finish it is necessary to keep the consumer's demands and wants as the driving force when managing the operation. Factors that are critical in the implementation of the operation are working with a manageable portfolio, forecasting unforeseen expenses, profit gains and losses. Purchasing the most recent and efficient software program or electronics to assist in the operation could be more effective but more expensive upfront. On the other hand, purchasing a complex program or electronics will be ineffective if the user is unable to comprehend its complete functions or abilities. Proper and thorough analysis is necessary in foreseeing all possible obstacles to a smooth operation. Presently, it is not uncommon for companies to implement new technology without previous analysis. The result is a rapidly growing demand for a product reliant on this technology to help produce or support it. As a result, they find themselves in a tight spot very soon. Resolving the issue consists of additional and extended analyses of changes and in the reimplementation of the technology, a process that can be slow and tap into an already tight budget. In conclusion, this dissertation surmises that documentation of and organized implementation of processes in a real manufacturing corporation is necessary to improve not only the quality of processes in support of reaching economic targets but also in assuring quality labour performances of all employees.

Herr elitfotbollsspelares upplevelser av socialt stöd under rehabiliteringen efter en svår idrottsskada / Male elite football player's experiences of social support during rehabilitation after a severe sports injury

Zidén, Anna, Söderberg, Amanda January 2022 (has links)
Föreliggande studie byggde på två teorier; en utvecklad version av Psykosociala Strategier för olika faser av idrottsskaderehabilitering gjord av Ivarsson et al. (2018) samt Sociala stödteorin av Lakey och Cohen (2000). Syftet med studien var att undersöka herr elitfotbollsspelares upplevelse av socialt stöd under rehabiliteringens olika faser efter en svår idrottsskada. En kvalitativ design användes där intervjuguiden har baserats på valda teorier samt tidigare forskning. Semistrukturerade intervjuer har genomförts med 10 herr elitfotbollsspelare som återvänt till fotbollen efter en svår idrottsskada. En tematisk analys (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) har använts och genererat i fyra huvudteman, 13 sub-teman och ett flertal koder som besvarat studiens två frågeställningar. Resultatet tyder på att det var olika upplevelser, i de olika fyra huvudteman. Det första temat (före skadan) visar att fotbollsspelarna upplevde att det fanns krav i att prestera på elitnivå. Det andra temat (reaktionen på skadan) handlar om en upplevd ovisshet kring skadans innebörd. Tema tre (reaktionen på rehabiliteringen) visar att känslorna gick från negativa till mer positiva. Under det fjärde temat (reaktionen på återvändandet) uttryckte fotbollsspelarna att de hade blandade känslor inför att återgå till fotbollen. Resultat visar att herr elitfotbollsspelare upplevde att socialt stöd var viktigt i samtliga faser av rehabiliteringsprocessen och framförallt känslomässigt- och informationsstöd. Vidare framkom det att socialt stöd var särskilt viktigt i andra fasen då det var mycket oro kring skadans innebörd. / The present study is based on two frameworks; a developed version of Psychosocial Strategies for Different Phases of Sports Injury Rehabilitation by Ivarsson et al. (2018) and the Social Support Theory by Lakey and Cohen (2000). The aim was to examine how male elite football players experienced social support during the various phases of rehabilitation following a severe sports injury. A qualitative design was used where the interview guide was based on above mentioned theories and previous research. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 10 male elite football players who returned to football post a severe sports injury. Thematic analysis (Braun &amp; Clarke, 2006) was used which generated in four main themes, 13 subthemes and several codes that answer the two issues presented in the study. The result suggests that different experiences were present in the different four main themes. Regarding the first theme (pre-injury), elite football players experienced demands in performing at elite level. The second theme (reaction to injury), showed that the feeling of uncertainty about the meaning of the injury was prominent. The third theme (reaction to rehabilitation) included participants experiencing a gradual decrease in negative emotion and an increase in positive emotions during rehabilitation. Concerning the fourth theme (reaction to return to sport), the participants expressed mixed feelings towards participating in football. Findings of the present study show that male elite football players feel that social support is important during the rehabilitation process, especially emotion and information support. It appears that social support is most important in the second phase of rehabilitation because of uncertainty about the meaning of the injury.
