Online Agencies In Global Battle For Market Share #airlines #ticket

Online Agencies In Global Battle For Market Share

In the global online travel market, online travel agencies definitely play second fiddle to supplier websites, says PhoCusWright research. Yet growth-seeking OTAs need not despair: as individual online travel markets mature, so does the online travel share booked via intermediaries, according to PhoCusWright’s Global Online Travel Overview Second Edition.

Bookings via online travel agencies comprise just 37 percent of global online travel sales, versus 63 percent for suppliers, PhoCusWright says. The channel mix is not expected to change through 2010, although supplier websites, which represented two thirds of the global market in 2008, lost share during the global recession.

Online travel agency share is highest in the two largest online travel regions the U.S. (41 percent) and Europe (37 percent). In contrast, younger, emerging travel markets tend to be more supplier-centric, with supplier-direct air bookings often dominating the online channel. OTAs represent less than 30 percent of online sales in the Asia Pacific and Latin American regions, PhoCusWright reports.

Online travel agencies tend to benefit from high fragmentation and strong competition among travel suppliers, says Lorraine Sileo, vice president, research. India is a great example. With a high number of brands competing in the domestic and international markets, New Delhi ‘s MakeMyTrip had one of the most successful IPOs of 2010.

Online travel agencies are growing rapidly in the Asia Pacific and Latin American regions, while growth in the U.S. and Europe has leveled off. Once online travel markets mature, there is little change in the percentage of bookings generated from the supplier-direct channel versus OTAs.

PhoCusWright’s Global Online Travel Overview Second Edition compares online travel bookings in four regions: Europe, the U.S. Asia Pacific and Latin America. The report features market sizing and growth forecasts through 2012 for the total travel market and the online leisure/unmanaged business category.

Despite cultural and technological challenges, more and more consumers prefer to book online and seek the opportunity to do so, PhoCusWright says.

What do you think of this $type?

This new seasonal route follows the recent announcement of several enhancements at the airline s Vancouver hub for 2016, including new transborder services to Chicago. San Jose and San Diego. double daily flights to London Heathrow, and the only flights linking Canada to Brisbane. Australia. The Vancouver-Dublin flights will be operated three times weekly by Air Canada s leisure airline, Air Canada rouge, with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft beginning June 10, 2016. To promote the new route, Air Canada is offering a special introductory fare starting as low as $839 round-trip all-in from Vancouver. and $949 round-trip all-in from Calgary or Edmonton. until December 4 for travel June 10-30, 2016. Tickets are now available for purchase.

Air Canada continues to strategically grow its international network at YVR with the only non-stop flights to Dublin during the peak summer period. This route is a great, convenient option for Western Canadians travelling to visit the vibrant Emerald Isle with its rich literary history, arts, world-class golf and dramatic landscapes. It will also be equally appealing for our customers from Ireland flying non-stop to visit and experience the spectacular attractions Vancouver and British Columbia offer, said Benjamin Smith.

Western Canada and growing U.S. network with our expanding South Pacific, Asian and European network.

Air Canada s strategic growth plans out of YVR continue to offer passengers exciting choices for travel, while creating new jobs, increasing access to global destinations and opening new markets for B.C. goods, said Craig Richmond. President and CEO of Vancouver Airport Authority. The new Dublin service will help fill the high demand for flights to Europe during the busy summer travel season and will also offer a new opportunity for British Columbia to showcase itself to arriving visitors from Ireland .

Air Canada rouge s new Vancouver Dublin flights begin June 10, 2016. operating three times weekly with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft featuring premium and economy cabins. Flights are timed to optimize connectivity to and from Air Canada s extensive west coast network through the airline s Vancouver hub.  All Air Canada flights provide for Aeroplan accumulation and redemption and, for eligible customers, priority check-in, Maple Leaf Lounge access, priority boarding and other benefits.

Trump Orders Media Blackout At Government Agencies: Bans Use Of Social

Trump Orders Media Blackout At Government Agencies: Bans Use Of Social Media, Bars New EPA Contracts

It wasn’t just the EPA.

Earlier today, we reported that the Trump administration instituted a media blackout at the Environmental Protection Agency and barred staff from awarding any new contracts or grants.

Emails sent to EPA staff since President Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday and reviewed by The Associated Press, detailed the specific prohibitions banning press releases, blog updates or posts to the agency’s social media accounts. On Monday, the Huffington Post reported that EPA grants had been frozen, with agency employees barred from speaking of the matter. The memo ordering the social media blackout is shown below.

Cited by The Hill, Myron Ebell, who leads the Trump EPA transition, confirmed the freeze to ProPublica. “They’re trying to freeze things to make sure nothing happens they don’t want to have happen, so any regulations going forward, contracts, grants, hires, they want to make sure to look at them first,” Ebell told ProPublica. Trump’s pick for EPA director, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, has frequently challenged agency policy in court.

The Trump administration reportedly told the Department of the Interior to stop tweeting from its accounts over the weekend after the National Park Service’s Twitter account retweeted a post about the crowd sizes at Trump’s inauguration Friday. The agency brought back its accounts on Saturday.

Asked if the EPA had been gagged, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said on Tuesday: “I don’t know. we’re looking into it. I don’t think it’s a surprise we’re going to review the policies but I don’t have any info at this time.”

According to Reuters sources, the move “reinforced concerns that Trump, a climate change doubter, could seek to sideline scientific research showing that carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels contributes to global warming, as well as the career staffers at the agencies that conduct much of this research.”

The agency also was asked by the White House on Monday to temporarily halt all contracts, grants and interagency agreements pending a review, according to multiple sources. The EPA awards billions of dollars worth of grants and contracts every year to support programs around environmental testing, cleanups and research. According to Reuters ,
the White House sent a letter to the EPA’s Office of Administration and Resources Management ordering the freeze on Monday. “Basically no money moving anywhere until they can take a look,” the staffer said, asking not to be named.

Now, as Reuters adds, other agencies were also impacted, and the Trump’s administration has put staff at a slew of government agencies on notice – “be careful what you say.”

In addition to the EPA, the Interior Department and the U.S. Department of Agriculture also has seen efforts to curb communication. On Monday, staff at the department’s Agricultural Research Service (ARS) were asked in an email to suspend the release of “any public-facing documents.”

“This includes, but is not limited to, news releases, photos, fact sheets, news feeds, and social media content,” the email said.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture disavowed the email on Tuesday, saying in a statement that it was released without “departmental direction and prior to departmental guidance being issued.”

“ARS will be providing updated direction to its staff,” according to the statement.

The ARS focuses on scientific research into the main issues facing agriculture, including long-term climate change.

Last week, staff at the Interior Department were told to stop posting on Twitter after an employee retweeted posts about the relatively low attendance at Trump’s inauguration, and about how the issues of climate change and civil rights had disappeared from the White House website.

The department has since resumed tweeting.

This isn’t censorship, they are a dept of the Executive branch and follow orders including communication same as any other. Got a question ask the President’s Press secretary.

They (EPA) promote and fund the research that promotes Climate Change being caused by CO2. Big time. Now the money is shut off. Lets see if we can get that money or some of it to study the effects on the Earth’s Temperature caused by the Sun, Lets see how GMO crops are 300% higher in formaldehyde.

STATE DEC’s do most of the real environmental work.

How does the media know that there’s a media blackout? Did someone at the EPA already spill the beans against Trump’s wishes?

i am pretty much an extremist when it comes to pollution and environmental degradation yet i think this is a healthy debate.

i hope the scientists inside and outside government rise to the occasion and convince the public of the need to reduce fossil fuel pollution (i wanted it long before i heard of global warming).

the democrats too should met the challenge and justify their use of air and space.

You do not need to believe in global warming (from human activity) to be against pollution. Police pollution and you will do much to taper global warming, if it were real (I am a doubter because cycles sound reasonable, and because we caught some of their scientists lying about their results, which, if global warming was real, those folks should be executed [and I am not a lover of capital punishment]). Go after pollution, STFU about global warming. Ask China, we don’t want to be China.

Every publically traded organization I’ve worked for would terminate me for making “statements” to the media. I don’t know what the rules are in public sector but this is just standard practice.

Might I suggest you refer to Obunghole in the future as a dicktaster?

You mean “Report Scientific Results” = “bitch to the media”?

We’re about to find out the real meaning of “politically correct”.

fuck up the biosphere.

and you better shut the fuck up and don’t tell on us.

Do the world a favor and stop breathing to support your flawed beliefs.

Far more people die from cold weather related events than from warm weather and yet Obama’s policy was to try to make the climate even colder than it is. The man was a menace.

I know it’s weird that we still exist, but as a skinny girl I fully support global warming.

I mean, is it just me or is it way too fucking cold? And am I the only one that remembers girls asking this all the time? Christ we’ve gotten fat. No wonder everyone thinks it’s gotten so much warmer.

Sorry to inform you that the world is most likely going to get much colder in the next 30 years. I suggest you move farther south if you don’t like the cold.

ISO 9001: 2015 and the telecoms industry – the easy and


#

Telecoms.com

Telecoms.com periodically invites expert third parties to share their views on the industry’s most pressing issues. In this piece Sheronda Jeffries explores the nuances and implications of the ISO 9001:2015 standard.

TL 9000 is a two-part quality management system standard aimed at meeting the supply chain requirements of the global information and communication technology (ICT) or telecom industry. TL 9000:2016 (Release 6) is scheduled to be the first sector standard released based on ISO 9001:2015 allowing TL 9000 Certified companies more transition time than other industries like aerospace or automotive.

The standard consists of the TL 9000 Requirements Handbook, which contains all of the auditable requirements of ISO 9001 and additional requirements specific to the ICT sector such as:

  • Service Availability (24/7)
  • Program, product, project, and service planning
  • Continuity of supply
  • Maintenance, including long-term & end of life
  • Product security
  • Disaster recovery

The TL 9000:2016 (Release 6) Requirements Handbook is slated for publication in Q2/Q3 2016 with an effective date of September 2016 and for the first time, instead of the customary one year transition, TL 9000 certified organizations will be allowed two years to transition their existing certifications to the new release of the Handbook. This will allow alignment with ISO 9001:2015’s three year transition as agreed by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF), the organization that provides oversight to Certification Bodies and Accreditation Bodies that grant TL 9000 certification.

How can ICT or telecom organizations best manage the ISO 9001:2015 and TL 9000:2016 (R6) transition? Let’s look at two buckets: easy versus hard.

The ‘easy bucket’ includes the concept of risk-based-thinking, which has been a major subject of concern and conversation for ISO 9001:2015 along with the introduction of “context.”

ISO 9001:2015 does not introduce the term “risk management” or terms like “risk mitigation” or “risk treatment.” Instead ISO 9001:2015 introduces the term “risk-based thinking” and clearly states that the concept of “risk-based thinking” was implicit in previous versions. The ISO 9001 standard now promotes a systematic approach to considering “risk” rather than treating the concept of preventing “risk” as a separate clause. Although many believe that “risk” applies only to negative consequences, the effects of “risk” can be either negative or positive.

Most telecom organizations have long utilized “red-yellow-green” indicators on dashboards and performance reports. In the past, yellow was an indicator for the need for caution or quite simply it was an indicator that there may be a need to take action to prevent potential nonconformities as in “preventive action.” The adoption of the concept of “risk-based thinking” is in line with “red-yellow-green” indicators that are used throughout the telecom industry and quite frankly other industries as well. This is a very basic application of risk-based thinking that is widely used and effective.

Many telecom organizations maintain certification or compliance with multiple management system standards. For example, Cisco Systems maintains ISO 9001, TL 9000, ISO 14001 and ISO 27001 Certifications. So the inclusion of core text from Annex SL will make things a lot simpler. In the telecom world, many organizations rely on tools and spreadsheets and the “high-level structure” (i.e. clause sequence, common text and terminology) will simplify the numbering and the text fields within the tools and spreadsheets.

The TL 9000 standard includes a focus on performance data that really fits well with the introduction of organizational “context” in ISO 9001:2015 – understanding the relevant needs and expectations of relevant interested parties. TL 9000 has long included additional requirements or “adders” for “Customer Communication,” “Customer Input” and “Supplier Input.” Additionally submission of monthly performance data allows TL 9000 Certified organizations to analyze their performance against their TL 9000 Certified competitors to evaluate whether their TL 9000 measurements performance meets “industry average” or is “best-in-class” or even “worst-in-class” for their products.

So transition to ISO 9001:2015 and TL 9000:2016 (Release 6) shouldn’t be that difficult – but what about the hard bucket?

One clause of ISO 9001:2015 contains the words “when addressing changing needs and trends.” For ICT or telecom, change is a way of life – markets and products are rapidly changing. With this in mind, telecom organizations may have some difficulty maintaining “organizational knowledge” when “addressing changing needs and trends” as change is almost constant in the industry.

Another consideration is that due to the rush to transition or re-certify by the IAF deadline, Certification Bodies will be backlogged and it may be difficult for telecom organizations to schedule their transition audits. Quite frankly, there are not a lot of Certification Body auditors qualified to conduct TL 9000 audits.

Other changes will impact TL 9000 Certified organizations as they transition. For example, the “Code of Practice for TL 9000 Certification Bodies” was revised to include a requirement that an installation or construction site be audited for initial certification at least once during each three-year certification cycle for specified organizations and a companion Code of Practice Checklist Guideline was created for Certification Bodies. An optional TL 9000 Measurements Checklist was revised and enhanced and a post-Audit Feedback Survey to gather anonymous input from auditors, auditees, and observers about their Certification Body audit experiences was recently implemented. Many of these changes were made as a result of the Validation Audits conducted by QuEST Forum.

The Validation Audits were undertaken by QuEST Forum to gather data to assess the effectiveness of the TL 9000 Certification process by confirming there are no major nonconformities in the requirements to be included in every audit, according to the “Code of Practice for TL 9000 Certification Bodies.” Organizations evaluated were chosen at random, while ensuring a representative regional distribution. Based upon the results, QuEST Forum continues working towards improvements in the TL 9000 Certification process.

The publication of the TL 9000:2016 (Release 6) Requirements Handbook continues QuEST Forum’s dedication to positively impacting the quality and sustainability of products and services in the ICT industry. QuEST Forum will continue to examine and address key ICT issues affecting reliability, performance, and security in future releases of its TL 9000 standard and associated TL 9000 measurements.

Hopefully, this focus will allow TL 9000 Certified organizations to have a lighter bucket load during future ISO 9000 transitions. For more information on ISO 9001:2015, ASQ Quality Management Standards .

Sheronda Jeffries is the Integrated Global Quality Chair for QuEST Forum, an industry collaboration of companies dedicated to ICT or telecom supply chain quality and performance, at the USTAG TC 176, ISO TC 176, ISO CASCO STAR and the IAF, where she serves as a Director representing Users and Industry.

Sheronda is responsible for providing internal consulting support at Cisco Systems and has more than 20 years experience serving as a third-party quality auditor and a consultant to Fortune 500 companies, specializing in quality management systems implementation and auditing. Her experience spans many industries, including ICT and telecom, plus the following types of manufacturing: electrical, mechanical, paper and plastic.

Global E-commerce

Five Keys to Enabling Your Global Business

With the addition of a few simple lines of code to your existing e-commerce website, UPS i-parcel determines the origin country of a visitor and presents a localized shopping experience. They are greeted in their local language, pricing is converted to the local currency, and familiar payment options are displayed. Your entire site can even be translated and displayed in your customer’s language, saving you from the overhead of operating numerous country websites.

UPS i-parcel acts as the Merchant of Record (MOR), handling the processing of all duties, fees and taxes, and enabling customs brokerage for your transactions. You can display merchandise pricing with duties and taxes during checkout for no surprises for global shoppers, eliminating costly returns of unwanted merchandise.

UPS i-parcel manages all payment collection processes relieving you of the risks and complicated procedures that come along with foreign currencies and credit card transactions. Because we collect payment from international shoppers – and accept more than 70 currencies — we remove the complexities of currency conversion and payment processing, including fraud.

Flexible shipping options have you covered for both urgent and ordinary deliveries. This includes UPS i-parcel Select, a service that provides local delivery within 5-8 business days at a cost-effective rate and UPS Worldwide Express services with guaranteed delivery within 2-7 days, depending on destination – both with end-to-end tracking and convenient returns. What’s more, providing targeted delivery dates can decrease cart abandonment and increase customer satisfaction.

Provide additional service to your shoppers while reducing the burden on your customer service department with 24/7/365 email support. UPS i-parcel handles all customer questions and provides information about payment or order status, typically within one hour. Product questions are forwarded to you to handle directly.

Merchant Tools

Global e-commerce is most successful when done at the local level. Traditionally, that required building and managing separate, stand-alone websites, often with limited product offerings and marketing. UPS i-parcel changes that. With our easy-to-use content management tool, you can manage your product catalog and maintain localized control of prices, promotions, and shipping options.

Take control with a simplified content management system
A powerful content management system (CMS) powers the UPS i-parcel solution and allows publishing, editing and modifying your website from a central, easy-to-use interface. The CMS manages all site elements including photos, promotions, prices and where and when products are displayed based on the user’s locale. Your cross border shoppers will view products and prices best suited for their lifestyle.

Expand your promotions to international markets
Just as your products don’t have to be one size fits all, neither do your promotions. The UPS i-parcel dashboard enables couponing, discounts, buy-one-get-one, time-bound, shipping or special promotions localized by market or customer base. Target new customers, build loyalty with repeat shoppers and increase conversion rates with promotions tailored to your global customers.

Provide an excellent experience through delivery and returns
Flexible shipping options have you covered for both urgent and ordinary deliveries. Whether it’s free, flat or customized, shipping strategies can be tailored to the needs of any shopper. And with end-to-end tracking and convenient returns, we help you build even better customer relationships to encourage more repeat business.

Global ATS provide ICAO compliant ATC training to international students sponsored by overseas aviation organisations.

ICAO courses are regularly reviewed to ensure they comply with International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) regulations.

Global ATS provide a variety of English language training to international students sponsored by overseas aviation organisations.

Our well qualified instructors have many years teaching experience in multi-cultural environments.

Global ATS has brought together a team of experienced Airport and ATM aviation Safety Management specialists who have been using and teaching ATM over many years. The team has collectively embraced the developments and lessons learned as Air Traffic Management systems have been implemented throughout the aviation industry.

An airport operator should ensure that all operational personnel are trained and competent to operate in those safety-critical areas. There are many activities that are performed on the airside area of an airport and an understanding of these is essential for a safe and efficient conduct of aircraft and vehicle movements.

Safety is the most important factor in any aviation operational discipline and it is essential that everyone involved has a clear understanding of how safety can be managed within their area of responsibility.

Global Aviation Training Services (GATS) is a United Kingdom based company providing a wide range of aviation training services and custom-built solutions in the field of Air Traffic Management. The company operates in a fast-moving and exciting industry sector providing its services to customers from over 35 countries, many of which are fast-growing emerging markets.

Global ATS offers many services which can be provided either in-country or at its Gloucestershire Airport facility, a UK CAA and ICAO ATC training college in western England.

Global ATS is a unique company. It is the only private sector (non-state owned) provider of air traffic training solutions – not only in the UK, but perhaps globally. GATS was built on the legacy and solid foundations of the highly respected Bailbrook Aviation College, which itself was a successor to the IAL Aviation College in Hayes, England established in the early 1960’s. This rich lineage has contributed in no small way in making GATS a world-leading centre for aviation training excellence.

Global ATS provides solutions to high-growth, opportunity-rich aviation markets. The growth of air traffic in emerging markets will drive demand for aviation training and services over the next 20 years, with a global shortfall of skilled industry manpower increasing this demand. The growth of air traffic in emerging markets such as the Middle East, the Gulf Cooperation Council states, Indian sub-continent, Africa, South East Asia, China, CIS countries in Central Asia and Latin America will drive demand for aviation training, education and services in the next 20 years.

A key asset is our CAA-approved ATC training centre at Gloucestershire Airport. Here we deliver our ATC training business, with consistently high quality and results.

An immersive ‘hands-on training environment’ gives students realistic work simulations, with a memorable experience of college life beyond the curriculum.

Aviation training is stringently regulated. Our clients expect us to ensure internal control processes; policies and procedures are in place for all staff. Our Quality Management System (QMS) contains all necessary controls to operate our business with full compliance.

We have established a network of Associates with over 150 years’ combined experience across all areas of Air Traffic Management. Our associates are available on an ad hoc basis to support a range of projects across specialist industry areas, including air navigation services, CNS engineering and maintenance training / solutions, aviation consultancy, 2D 3D simulation development, safety and quality management system implementation and more.

Recent News

Building on previous Air Traffic Control (ATC) training delivery for the Irish Air Corps (IAC), GATS was delighted to accept its latest intake of students who will be completing their Basic Training Course, scheduled to finish in June 2017.

Working towards a career as an ATCO you will spend 4 years immersing yourself in and learning the ATC industry as a Pseudo Pilot before undertaking a Basic Training Course Aerodrome Control Instrument Course. After 4 years’ service and course completion you will leave Global ATS as a highly skilled professional ready to begin a rewarding career as an Air Traffic Control Officer.

You will operate a wide variety of ATC simulators to support the delivery of both UK and ICAO ATC training courses for Aerodrome, Approach, Approach Radar, Area Procedural and Area Radar. You will also assist the instructional staff with the delivery of their courses and management staff with their day-to-day duties as required.

With governments looking for efficiencies in all areas of Aviation Training and Regulations, GATS is supporting the Swaziland Civil Aviation Authority (SWACAA) in providing affordable travel to Swaziland’s population.

Global ATS Limited (GATS) UK, as part of its International Business Development Strategy, has strengthened its Business Development Team expanding its support for International Markets.

Following the recent announcement of GATS company restructure refocused on Air Traffic Control Training International Sales Division, GATS has expanded its China Business Development Team to include South East Asia.

Philosophy and Religion Degree Programs – Department Information #ba #philosophy,ba #religious


#

Philosophy Religion

Questions?

Philosophy explores the nature of the world, the basis of human values, and foundations of reason. Philosophy also offers the challenge of interpreting the work of thinkers who have created our intellectual traditions. Students approach these issues through study of both historical literature and contemporary developments.

The study of Western and Eastern religious traditions introduces students to a major influence on all civilizations. Journalists, diplomats, and government specialists benefit from a serious consideration of the inner workings of the religious ethos of civilizations. Daily events remind us that there is no more motivating factor in the culture of nations than ardently held religious belief. A thorough understanding of the modern world requires familiarity with its religious heritage. American University’s Washington, DC setting is advantageous for the study of religion, with national offices and centers for many religions. The Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area also offers a variety of courses in philosophy and religion that are available to American University students.

Why Study Philosophy or Religion?

Students often want to know the practical value of studying philosophy or religion. In other words, how will it help you in the future? What jobs are available for philosophy and religious studies majors? What if you want to continue on to graduate school, but don’t want to teach philosophy or religion?

The study of philosophy or religion helps students develop valuable skills leading to work in any number of fields. Studying philosophy or religion provides excellent preparation for graduate study in many disciplines and areas of study.

Check out a short piece from NPR on the need for philosophers engaged in public debate here .

Career opportunities

Students graduating with majors in philosophy or religion have chosen careers in law, medicine, social work, the ministry, computer science, environmental protection, human rights, journalism, communication, government, business, education, race relations, and applied ethics.

New studies have also shown that degrees in the Humanities, especially Philosophy, have great returns on investment .

Graduate school

Students have pursued graduate study in philosophy, religious studies, theology, history, psychology, linguistics, anthropology, medicine, law, economics, public health, literature, and education.

Intellectual development and skills

Philosophy and religion courses are ideal for students who want to develop and improve writing and analytical skills. Students of philosophy or religion become more aware of themselves and the world around them. By raising questions that explore the basic principles of existence and ultimate human concerns, the study of philosophy or religion helps students develop many skills such as the ability to

  • reason clearly
  • extract what is essential from large amounts of information
  • understand and analyze complicated texts
  • develop a well-structured argument
  • express ideas in a clear and persuasive manner
  • solve problems

Why Study Philosophy in DC?

Our location in the heart of DC provides:

  • Easy access to Smithsonian Institutions, museums, national monuments, and the Library of Congress
  • A wealth of varied and diverse internship and service opportunities with the federal government and non-profit organizations
  • Opportunities to see and participate in political life and history as it happens

Why Choose AU?

At American University, our graduate and undergraduate programs prepare students to enter into the field of professional philosophy or many fields of postgraduate education. Besides teaching the classics of historical and contemporary philosophical thought and important philosophical developments, many classes are devoted to the application of philosophy to issues concerning biomedicine, environmental protection, human rights, the media, business, and race relations. Alumni of our BA program pursue graduate work not only in philosophy but also in other fields such as history, psychology, linguistics, computer science, anthropology, and literature. Many positions in science and industry require the analytical skills gained through the study of philosophy. In addition, the Philosophy program emphasizes clear thinking, accurate writing, and problem solving as well as the application to today’s practical problems. These skills are excellent preparation for further study toward law, medicine, social work, the ministry, and other professional careers.

What Is Philosophy?

The best way to find an answer to this question is to take one or two philosophy courses (as part of your general education requirements). However, for those of you looking for an instant answer, philosophy is the study of ideas, whether moral, legal, religious, or aesthetic. Philosophers explore the nature of the real world, the basis of human values, and the foundations of reason. Students at American University approach these issues by studying texts from different periods as well as from different regions. For example, students study both historical literature and contemporary developments in Western and Asian philosophy as well as other traditions such as the Latin American and African.

Why cut a hole in the roof when you can put a smart Bard wall-mount unit on the side of your commercial building instead? Bard s vertical package wall-mount systems feature more enhancements than typical rooftop units, including patented features such as factory or field-installed ventilation options and control modules. Our vertical wall-mount units operate in the normal ambient environment, meaning much higher energy savings and a significant increase in economizer hours.

The Bard way is the smarter way to cool your building. Our wall-mount units operate in a much softer environment than 130 rooftops, which means greater efficiency, increased economizer operating hours and significantly longer life-spans. Plus, unlike most rooftop units, Bard offers active dehumidification sequence which is incredibly valuable to you when adding fresh-air ventilation to comply with building codes.

Just like the mobile structures you design, Bard mobile-unit HVAC system have durability and reliability as their cornerstones. Our systems are made to operate at temperatures ranging from
-30 F to +130 F and switch automatically from 50Hz to 60Hz. Bard systems are designed and tested to ensure they can take a beating on the road and still perform like champs.

Why put an HVAC unit on the roofs where they are hard to service, cause leaks and are subjected to severe and extreme heat? Bard wall-mount units offer everything a rooftop unit does, but in a much smarter and more efficient manner. Taking your air conditioner off of your roof can save you money and significantly increase equipment lifespan of your equipment.

Bard units are known industry-wide to be among the most reliable and easiest to maintain HVAC systems available. Bard engineers always design our units with the HVAC pros in mind, making accessibility and diagnosis one of our top design goals. When it comes to matching today’s highest efficiency requirements with yesterday’s durability, no one does it better than Bard.

Global Student Outreach Program #global #outreach #program

NYU College of Dentistry/Henry Schein Cares Global Student Outreach Program

Improving oral health through service, education, and research

The NYU Dentistry/Henry Schein Cares Global Student Outreach Program was created to address public health and access to care issues in dentistry and oral health. The Program exists thanks to the sponsorship of Henry Schein Cares, the global social responsibility program of Henry Schein, Inc.

We call it an outreach, when in fact it is an ‘in-reach.’ While we help others by providing dental care, we help students reach within themselves to identify duty and altruism – qualities that we believe they always had.

– Dr. Andrew Spielman
Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Maine outreach faculty participant

NYU Dentistry’s comprehensive global outreach programs offer participants a unique, service-learning experience. These interdisciplinary programs provide faculty, residents and students of dentistry, hygiene, nursing and public health with a well-rounded perspective on access-to-care issues and challenge them to rethink their roles as healthcare providers. Clinical outreach programs provide free dental services to populations facing barriers to oral healthcare including a dearth of dental providers, economic hardship and inadequate health insurance coverage. Students and residents receive hands-on clinical instruction and are exposed to public health issues in dentistry. Post-outreach evaluations have consistently shown a transformational effect on participants, and past participants have noted these experiences as a highlight in their NYU Dentistry student career.

Global temporary table example #oracle #global #temp #table, #global #temporary #table

Global temporary table example

Question: I need an example of how a global temporary table works. How does a global temporary table differs from a traditional temporary table or a WITH clause? I need a working example of a global temporary table. Do you need to drop the Global temporary table after each use?

Answer: When using a global temporary table you need only define the table once for the entire schema and then any user can insert directly into the table without the need to re-create the global temporary table.

drop table t1;
create table
t1
as
select sum(quantity) all_sales from stores;

Instead, a global temporary table does not required that the table be dropped and re-created and the global temporary tables are shared, such that each user gets a local copy of their rows, using the common definition.

create global temporary table
sum_quantity
(sum_qty number);

Once created, everyone shares the table definition and rows are private to each session. Here is an example of using a global temporary table:

SQL insert into sum_quantity
2 (select sum(qty) from sales);

Note that the rows disappear after the SQL statement has completed, so that a GTT can be used over-and-over without redoing the table.

SQL select * from sum_quantity;

SQL select * from sum_quantity;

no rows selected
