Abstract

Introduces the concept of jury trial simulation and outlines a number of different techniques used. Briefly looks at the future development through new computer software and concludes that the evidence available suggests that jury trial simulation works.

Abstract

For indigenous peoples around the world, schooling and education are fraught with extreme challenges within the current realities of globalization. Indigenous knowledge, perspectives, and pedagogy in Africa, Asia, and the Americas are rarely included in books and courses that deal with history and philosophy of education, and there is widespread belief that non-Western and indigenous educational traditions and realities are not comparable to Western educational traditions and have little to offer discussions about education (Reagan, 2005). That is, the larger discourse of educational thought and practice, as Timothy Reagan suggests in the quote preceding this introduction, has been extremely biased in its treatment of anything non-Western; instead simplistic misunderstandings and misrepresentations reify the larger effects of cultural and epistemological ethnocentrism, colonialism, and Western imperialism.

Abstract

Shows how Kellogg’s used an integrated marketing campaign to launch a new fruit snack into the UK market; it included PR, ambient media, web and TV. Argues that this innovative approach was a major factor in the product’s success: the creative idea was that Real Fruit Winders were an anarchic from of fruit that children could eat, play with and use to communicate with each other, and a world of fruits was created with its own Chewchat language as well as characters. Identifies the key marketing insight as children’s need for interactivity, which connects their interests like gaming and the Internet but was previously absent from the snack market. Illustrates this with a look at the Chewchats website and how children could interact with the brand, plus the campaign which distributed Chewchat stickers in magazines, and at cinemas and concerts.

Abstract

Investigates the differences in protocols between arbitral tribunals and courts, with particular emphasis on US, Greek and English law. Gives examples of each country and its way of using the law in specific circumstances, and shows the variations therein. Sums up that arbitration is much the better way to gok as it avoids delays and expenses, plus the vexation/frustration of normal litigation. Concludes that the US and Greek constitutions and common law tradition in England appear to allow involved parties to choose their own judge, who can thus be an arbitrator. Discusses e‐commerce and speculates on this for the future.

Abstract

E‐commerce plays an important role in today’s business environment, and that role will continue to grow each year. eMarketer predicts that by “2004, world wide e‐commerce revenues are expected to total USD 2.7 trillion”. E‐commerce continues to grow in the United States. “The Census Bureau of the Department of Commerce announced today that the estimate of U.S. retail e‐commerce sales for the first quarter of 2004, not adjusted for seasonal, holiday, and trading‐day differences, was $15.5 billion, an increase of 28.1 per cent (±2.9 per cent) from the first quarter of 2003.” “According to a new study by RoperASW and AOL Time Warner, Europeans spent on average EUR430 on line between August and October 2002.” This compares with an average spend of EUR543 per head in the US over the same period.

Abstract

IT is not here proposed to list all the aero‐planes in use with the Deutsche Luftwaffe, but only to describe some representative examples of the latest equipment. The German policy is known to have been the development primarily, of a strong striking force, so that the first really modern aeroplanes to be issued to the re‐born air arm were bombers. In the first place these were converted Junkers Ju 52–3m, followed by the military version of the Ju 86. Even the Heinkel He 111k, which is still one of the main bomber types, was flown as a prototype in 1936 in the nominal guise of a high‐speed passenger and mail aeroplane.

Abstract

Given approximations to the electrostatic potential and the current densities in a semicon‐ductor device model, a method is described and analyzed for computing moments of the carrier densities, as will be used in a consistent finite‐element discretization of the full system of equations commonly adopted for such models. It is also shown how the current density distribution obtained from a Scharfetter‐Gummel method is compatible with this procedure, and leads to a global accuracy of at least first order in the mesh size. The convergence analysis depends only on the electrostatic potential and the current densities being reasonably smooth functions, and not on bounded derivatives of the carrier densities or on a limit in the change in electrostatic potential between neighbouring mesh points.
