In another article I wrote about “spokes on a wheel” design for participatory action research network (NPAR). The idea is simple. Organization, business or education environment challenged by the need to make complex changes in a hurry to support node group participatory action research (PAR) in a variety of work environments. the current school system, each school will be a focal point in a large multinational company offices in various countries nodes. Various activities within the public service, working node group. Small groups of people who will take the time that action research will examine what needs to be done to make changes in the areas under their control, the application of small steps towards changing it, measure the results of this step, and finally, a report on what they have learned and their strategic plans for the future. clubs and groups meet in the middle of the wheel to meet as a larger group meeting about every two months today. facilitated by someone who has extensive experience in helping people through this practice. This article, this model one step further and questions about how to manage in house skills to facilitate participatory action research for years to come within the network
Trainer trains models for NPAR
Creating systemic change is a long process. Therefore, to save costs, companies or institutions will want to plan NPAR, to further develop skills facility for several years. This requires a group of people at home who do not just know how to facilitate a group, but also know how to deal with the inns and outs of group support for the success of participatory action research and reports. What are the steps involved?
Recent research on the impact of food choices on health, such as popcorn, vegetarian, chocolate, meat and alcohol.
For dark secret popcorn
The idea of spending the night in a dark movie theater with friends and a bowl full of popcorn with butter flavor can stimulate you. It would really be a good idea if you are willing to share your popcorn with all your friends.
Research, Center for Science in the Public Interest in the U.S. showed an alarming amount of fat, salt and calories in popcorn. The study was conducted in three cinema chains.
For example, a big package of popcorn contains 1,200 calories and 60 grams of saturated fat. One tablespoon of butter, add 130 extra calories. Fat calories in a medium popcorn packaging is not too different from the big and small package contains about 670 calories and 24 grams of saturated fat.
“The problem is the amount, says Marion Nestle, professor of nutrition at New York University.” Most of the popcorn is about three-quarters of the value of calories throughout the day. “
What funding tube?
Let’s start with the definition of “tubes funding and how it differs from venture capital, private equity funds and other investment instruments. PIPE stands for private investment in public equity”. This is basically the process leading to the hedge funds, corporate and / or private equity by public companies listed on the exchange for the stock, usually at a reduced price.
What is the history of funding relative tube?
During the fourth quarter of 2007 there was a dramatic increase in the amount of funding awarded to public companies as a result of the credit crisis tensions tremendous inherent in the sub-prime market. According to Robert F. Kyle Sagient Executive Vice President of Market Research pipe reached historic levels in 2007, with more than $ 45 billion in the fourth quarter alone. That the four completely exceeded all annual amount over the last twelve years.
Why PIPE financing is growing so fast?
Mark Twain once said, “I am more concerned about the return on my investment, rather than the return on my investment.” This statement reflects the main advantage to let the PIPE financing in connection with investor strategy when an investor makes investment in a company, a major concern is the exit strategy. Funded PIPA company public, so check on her estate investor and may buy or sell at any time. private companies should not cash out investors in the strategy has been adopted and implemented which usually comes at great risk for a longer period of time. This is why the PIPE financing has increased over the last 12 years. Another advantage of investing in the body compared to private public revelation. A business must provide public financial information and overseen by the SEC. Investors around the world, including hedge funds and fund managers, bankers, institutional investors and private look at this information. Another important advantage for the management of public companies is the ability to maintain control. Venture capital and angel investors usually requires writing of the Executive Board, and a majority of the voting rights. In our experience, companies that take their business to the stock market and reach for the majority ownership, giving them their strategy to achieve the company’s development objectives as they see fit or change the PIPE financing
HHS research exception for physicians or scientists who needed a foreign stay (INA212 (e)), which is necessary for the investigation, which is clearly in the national interest. In contrast to non-immigrant and immigrant visa petitions, HHS examined the application of research by scientists who are experts or at least very familiar with this area of research. Often NIH scientists. Factors for successful application of relevant HHS exemption are as follows:
National significance of the research itself is associated with factors such as how many people are affected by the investigation focuses on the unique nature of the research and to provide opportunities for beneficial results.
o the needs and realities of an alien on the product itself. Alien scientists have major importance for its growth.
o foreign qualifications as a researcher.
o force hospitals or institutions where foreign investigate.
o Installation of a long-term commitment to a stranger.
