...is an honour for ASSOCHAM, the country’s “Knowledge Chamber”, to have undertaken a study on “Mobile Value Added Services (MVAS) – A vehicle to usher in inclusive growth and bridge the digital divide” with inputs and guidance from Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). It is indeed a reflection of the contribution made by ASSOCHAM and its Members in forwarding meaningful policy input to the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology and Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) from time to time. While the computer and internet empowered urban India, we believe that it is the mobile which is impacting the common man in the hinterland and the far flung areas of the country. Mobile phones are certainly the solution for bridging the digital divide and therefore make it the perfect medium for delivering a variety of services and content to the common man through Mobile Value Added Services. Through Mobile Value Added Services, we can achieve digital empowerment and inclusive growth through for example information based services across the country benefiting even the farmers in the remotest villages. We expect that this study will be a step towards acknowledging and recognizing the importance of Mobile Value Added Services in the country and hope that Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) will also extend its support and encouragement to Mobile Value Added Services. I would like to acknowledge the guidance provided by the Chaiman, Telecom Regulatory......

The Importance of Bridging the Digital Divide in America

...The Importance of Bridging the Digital Divide in America Pseftis Angelis Ethics in Information Technology Professor Jean M Mc Kenzie University of Maryland University College Abstract Years ago people said the world was flat. Later this theory was disproved when Magellan circumvented the world in 1522. In America the expression “the world is flat” relates to us all by connecting the world to us through the use of the internet. With the internet and technology connecting all of us, it is increasingly important that people have access to the internet so they too can participate in the world around them. Technology has curved the way we live our lives on a daily basis. Social media, elections, bill paying, communication, leisure entertainment and education are all done or can be done through the use of the internet. For example, teachers use technology for educational purposes giving the kids access to use computers, smartphones, tablets and the internet to search and expand the resources from what the school has to offer. Research has proven that schools and communities that have access to the internet and computers average an income $30,000 higher than those that don’t. This is the metaphorical gap we need to bridge in the United State of America. The goal is to ensure 100% of our country has access to the internet with the skills they need to utilize it and understand its capabilities.

Bridging the Valley of Death: Lessons Learned from 14 Years of Commercialization of Technology Education

...BRIDGING THE VALLEY OF DEATH: LESSONS LEARNED FROM 14 YEARS OF COMMERCIALIZATION OF TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION ABSTRACT We argue for the increasing importance of providing graduate students skills in technology entrepreneurship and the commercialization of technology. We describe the lessons we have learned from fourteen years of developing commercialization of technology pedagogy and adapting it for use on four continents and within numerous corporations. We demonstrate that the straightforward theory-driven approach that we use to shape the curriculum improves our ability to learn from our mistakes and to structure small experiments to improve the pedagogy. INTRODUCTION Interest in the commercialization of technology and high technology entrepreneurship has increased significantly in the past decade. It is apparent that in many increasingly knowledge-based economies, effective managers will need to be better trained in dealing with technologists and in creating business growth and advantage through commercializing technology. Technical education faces new demands as well. For example, the National Academy of Sciences (COSEPP, 1995) issued a committee statement calling for rethinking graduate education for scientists and engineers to include the skills to promote the commercialization of technologies that they create. As interest in commercialization of technology has increased, so has academic research interest in this area. For example, the Journal of Product......

Its unprecedented growth is a direct result of meeting a niche in the clothing market, at a time when The Gap was well positioned to meet the new demands of this "business-casual" trend, introducing other chains to expand its customer base, and aggressive expansion in the global marketplace.

Interpretation and Bridging Gaps

...Interpretation and Bridging Gaps In his approach to Reader-Response criticism, Wolfgang Iser stands between subjectivity and objectivity. For him, literary texts do not have one final meaning; nor are they open to as many meanings as there are readers. Iser’s two major books, The Implied Reader (1974) and The Act of Reading (1978), have continued to be sold and reprinted; he has also published an abundance of more recent articles. Iser distinguishes literary texts from non-literary ones and presents us with a phenomenology of reading that has significant implications for literary interpretation. He draws a distinction between literature and non-literature in the book titled: The Act of Reading: A Theory of Aesthetic Response and says: “Literary texts do not contain a referential meaning; if they did, they would not be literature.” Iser’s primary concern is the relationship between the text and its readers. According to Iser, the literary text has a ‘potential’, and ‘the structure of the text allows for different ways’ of fulfilling its ‘potential’. (qtd. The Act of Reading, 13) I believe that to achieve this effect, the literary text conceals as it reveals. The presence of holes or gaps in the text invites the reader to fill in the gaps, but the reader’s activity is guided and molded by that what is revealed. Iser’s blanks come with his points of suspended connectability between segments of the text. (qtd. The Act of Reading, 13) He focuses on the role of the......

Bridging the Two Worlds—the Organizational Dilemma

I was 26 years old, and I was now the manager of AEC’s customer service group, which looked after customers, logistics, and some of the raw material purchasing. My superior, George, was the vice president of the company. AEC manufactured most its products, a majority of which were destined for the construction industry, from aluminum. As I walked around the shop floor, the employees appeared to be concentrating on their jobs, barely noticing me. Management held daily meetings in which various production issues were discussed. No one from the shop floor was invited to these meetings unless there was a specific problem. Later I also learned that management had separate washrooms and separate lunchrooms, as well as other perks that floor employees did not have. Most of the floor employees felt that management, although polite on the surface, did not really feel they had anything to learn from the floor employees. John, who worked on the aluminum slitter, a crucial operation required before any other operations could commence, had suffered a number of unpleasant encounters with George. As a result George usually sent written memos to the floor to avoid a direct confrontation with John. Because the directions in the memos were complex, these memos were often more than two pages in length....

Bridging the Two Worlds

...Improbable Plot Casts Unflattering Light on SNC-Lavalin In October of 2012, one of Canada’s largest engineering companies, which was also one of the world’s five largest, hired a new CEO in what looked like the next chapter of an ongoing attempt to put a series of revelations about unethical and potentially illegal dealings around the world behind them. While the company had fired some key people who were connected with the scandals, there were those who publicly mused that the reported unethical and illegal dealings weren’t just the work of a rogue international VP, Riadh Ben Aissa, but that Mr. Ben Aissa’s way of doing business was well-understood within SNC. While Mr. Ban Aissa was detained in jail in Switzerland on suspicion of paying bribes in order to get contracts in North Africa, including Libya, the new CEO, Robert Card, stated that sorting out the payments scandal would be the job of the company’s Board of Directors and his job would be to reassure investors by growing the business. At that time, investor concerns had caused the stock price to fall to $35 from $60 18 months earlier. Over the past three years the company had reported strong financial results. In 2010, SNC-Lavalin’s revenues had been $6.0 billion and profit reached a record $477 million. In 2011, revenues had grown to $7.2 billion but profit declined to $379 million, partly as a result of the pullout from Libya, but still the second highest in company history. In 2012, the revenues were again......

Culturally Responsive Teaching: Bridging the Gap

...Culturally Responsive Teaching: Bridging the Gap Michael Warren University of Texas at El Paso Culturally Responsive Teaching: Bridging the Gap The changing demographics in classrooms are not often reflected in the pedagogies, curriculum and strategies used in represented grade levels and content areas by the education professionals that drive our education system. Recent research has considered the idea that culturally responsive or culturally pedagogical teaching may be the answer to closing the achievement gap created by the absence of cultural awareness. The concept of cultural awareness may be simply defined as an understanding and awareness of the diversity in the classroom (Villegas & Lucas, 2002); however, such a simplistic definition does not recognize the many dimensions involved in the pedagogy of culturally responsive teaching, which for students includes seeing germane links between subject matter and lessons and their experiences outside the context of the classroom and how those links influence what and how they learn. The purpose of this literature review is to examine the many facets that make up the term Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) and the impact and implications implementing such a broad concept may have on the education system. While the literature discusses several topics connected to CRT, I will confine this review to the following: (1) CRT Background/Definition (2) The methods of study, the participants involved and the......

Science and Religion: Bridging the Great Divide

...ESSAY; Science and Religion: Bridging the Great Divide EVER since science began drifting away from religion, centuries ago, each has dreamed of subsuming the other. Scientists, in their boldest moments, speak of explaining away all the mysteries by empirical inquiry, leaving no need for ancient wisdom. And the faithful, fervently believing in spiritual forces unmeasurable by any meter, find it absurd that God's children would aspire to heaven solely by building telescopes and computers -- scientific Towers of Babel. They have longed for a reality beyond the shadowplay of the material realm. Left between these extremes are many people who are both scientific and religious, and confused about whether a bridge can ever cross the divide. Every few decades, this hope for reconciliation, or ''dialogue,'' experiences a revival. The most recent may be the biggest, with books, conferences and television shows trying to find a common ground between two fundamentally different ways of thinking about the world. In the 1970's scholars tried to merge science with Eastern religion; the emphasis now is on rejoining science with monotheistic, usually Christian, faith. Not all the work is motivated by religious passion. In his new best-selling book, ''Consilience'' (Knopf), the Harvard biologist Edward O. Wilson tries to revive the Enlightenment dream of a unified system of knowledge that would embrace not only the sciences but also morality and ethics, removing them from the uncertainties...
