This book is the first of its kind in Uganda to discuss the issue of brown envelopes from the perspective of journalists’ salaries. The author argues that to get ethical behaviour in media, it is important to look beyond advocating for more university degrees because Uganda gets more than enough well-trained graduates each year. The attention instead should be put on the embarrassing salary that journalists get. This argument is supported by data showing that even reporters who have journalism degrees seek and receive brown envelopes. This is not because they do not understand media ethics. It is because they need to look after their families like any other person. The journalists who get as low as shs 1000 ($0.4) per story no longer abide by the newsroom rules of procedure. They resort to what this book refers to as Media Darwinism, a situation where only the physically strong journalist will survive. Approaching professionalism by setting degree standards, as the law dictates, is unreasonable, if the poor salaries are neglected.
The present study, attempts to find out, how the degree college teachers perceive UGC's Fifth Pay commission regulations (1998) with respect to NET/SET, Contractual/ clock hour basis (CHB) appointments, In service training programmes, Work duration, Promotion conditions, Retirement age, Research and Benefits. Human resource development, at all levels, needs to be given priority and made a part of the nation's overall development strategy.

At the time when young adults are receptive to making successful transitions from secondary education into the adult world of employment, I argue significant benefits can accrue to those taking jobs in public service conservation work (PSCW) programs. Via a one-year commitment to entry-level PSCW, programs such as the state of California's Conservation Corps (CCC) facilitate significant gains in self-worth and professional growth for this under-skilled and under-served age cohort. PSCW programs have the capacity to instill in the nascent worker appreciation for the values and rewards of professional service while establishing an understanding of and a commitment to academic advance, environmentalism, and the causative efforts that support and strengthen communities. The study’s objectives measure and evaluate long-term (i.e. longitudinal) employment trends, pursuit of a formal degree, and growth in personal commitment to environmental stewardship and community wellness by California Conservation Corps (CCC) members from after five to more than twenty-five years post-program graduation date.
The present study, was an attempt to find out how the degree college teachers perceive UGC's Sixth Pay commission regulations, 2010 with respect to ‘Pay scale’, ‘Recruitment and qualification’, ‘Academic Performance Indicator’, ‘Career advancement scheme’ and ‘Code of professional ethics’. In the Education system lack of understanding of policies and resistance to reforms, affects the teachers quality and progress. To attend to those policy areas where success may be more likely researcher believed that the regulations related policies needs to be studied for its effective implementations and teachers should be involved in the study. For similar reasons the researcher conducted survey of the degree college teachers to generate their perception towards newly implemented UGC regulations, 2010. The study aimed at reviewing, monitoring and evaluation of the regulations which is essential for efficiency and effectiveness of higher education system as a whole.

Suppression of the media is a tool a number of African leaders used in the post-independence era to consolidate their grip on power and to silence opposing views. Malawi’s former president Banda, who led the country to independence from Britain in 1964, was one such leader. The suffocation of the media further created a culture where people suffered in silence as their freedom of expression was gravely stifled. This book examines the media in Malawi in the post-Banda era which came to an end following the wind of change that brought in multiparty democracy with the first elections held in 1994. It finds that the media still face a number of serious challenges despite a constitutional provision which guarantees media freedom. It, thus establishes that though formal media freedom is a necessary condition for a free media, it is in itself not sufficient. Moreover, in the long term, Malawi needs to achieve a higher level of economic activity enabling the media to operate in a market with sufficient consumers to generate the revenues able to make the media commercially viable. The country may then have attained sufficient conditions for the development of a free media.
In this study of students at a master’s degree-granting public university, Dr. Zerovnik looked for possible relationships between media preferences for simple or more complex media content and practical intelligence (also known as non-verbal intelligence or “street smarts”), as well as various demographic and cultural factors. The author expected to find that people who scored higher on the Raven’s Progressive Matrices assessment tool for pattern-matching ability would also prefer more complicated story lines, and do so in a linear fashion. The results failed to confirm this hypothesis, although there is some suggestion that there may be a curvilinear, inverted “U” shape relationship that goes up from the lower to middle ranges, then eases off at the highest ranges. The research also revealed various confounds related to the degree of audience identification with actors (“sexiness” and similar age). The results suggest avenues for further research in finding out why people make media content and media delivery vehicle choices.

Tiny roads and high shorelines on the lake mean the town needs a fire boat to help prevent future tragedies. Can she convince the town to pay for it? Despite the tragedy, Stella is looking forward to working with the state arson investigator that has been sent in on the case. She has limited training in arson, and wants to learn more. Former fire cheif Eric Gamlyn's bones are finally laid to rest, and Stella is presented with his old badge that was found with him, only to learn that the badge will allow her to take him with her when she goes out. This turns out to be a blessing, and a curse. With three of her main firefighters out of commission, Stella is trying to recruit new members of the fire brigade too. She is also fighting to keep the property where Eric's cabin is located away from a city councilman who wants to destroy it to get rid of Eric. And still she has time to get in a few bad dates with a new firefighter!

Migration is the movement of population and it is increasing all over the world. This movement also affects the health care. Nowadays there are more migrant patients in health care than before and health care professionals have limited experiences in caring for people who come from different cultures. In order for the health care services to be equal for everyone, the needs of the migrants need to be considered as well. The content of this book is the result of a final thesis, which was completed for a bachelor''s degree in health care. Two nursing students in the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences Helsinki, Finland carried out the thesis. The project was supervised by the senior lecturer Lea-Riitta Mattila PhD, RN. The purpose of this final project was to describe and to clarify the concept of a migrant friendly hospital. Needs, interventions and effectiveness of interventions are described. This book therefore provides an insight into the obstacles that multicultural health care is facing it can serve as starting point for people who face these issues and who wish to get ideas in how to provide equal care to migrants.
