This exercise is a classroom demonstration of the commons dilemma, and similar to the prisoner’s dilemma. Essentially, people are forced to choose between what would maximize their personal outcomes (more points) and what would be best for the group as a whole (fewer points). 5 ensaladas ricas en proteínas.

Contemporary Japan: The Japanese Family. Theodore Bestor :: This kind of traditional Japanese family system — the multigenerational family organized around primogeniture, that is to say passing the entire estate of the family, the social role, the financial assets, the occupation, the profession, from father to the eldest, usually the eldest son — is a distinct characteristic of the Japanese kinship system.

Contemporary Japan: The Japanese Family

But, it’s not unique to Japan by any means. Many other societies, including many societies in Western Europe, have a similar kind of a kinship system.

Rich countries and the minorities they discriminate against, mapped. Unconscious bias plays a bigger role than we like to admit in company decisions about hiring (pdf).

Case in point: Multiple studies have found that having a name associated with a minority group leads to substantially fewer callbacks from potential employers. But which minority group? Well that depends on what country you’re in. The OECD’s most recent report on international migration compiles a wide variety of research on résumé discrimination in member-countries. All these studies use a particular metric to look at workplace discrimination. A ratio of two means someone would need to make twice as many applications for a job to get a callback, compared to an applicant with a name associated with the country’s majority population. There’s a wide amount of variation in the studies, which makes direct comparison between countries very difficult.

The role played by social media in political participation and electoral campaigns. Social Media has rapidly grown in importance as a forum for political activism in its different forms. Social media platforms, such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube provide new ways to stimulate citizen engagement in political life, where elections and electoral campaigns have a central role. © Ronda / Fotolia Personal communication via social media brings politicians and parties closer to their potential voters.

It allows politicians to communicate faster and reach citizens in a more targeted manner and vice versa, without the intermediate role of mass media. Reactions, feedback, conversations and debates are generated online as well as support and participation for offline events. Although the presence of social media is spreading and media use patterns are changing, online political engagement is largely restricted to people already active in politics and on the Internet.

Use of social media in EU communication - European commission. Social media refer to online technologies and practices that are used to share opinions and information, promote discussion, and build relationships. They use a variety of different formats, including text, pictures, audio and video. More and more EU citizens are active on social networks. The European Commission therefore uses these platforms to reach out and connect with citizens and stakeholders in addition to the communication which takes place via more traditional channels such as written press, broadcasters and EU publications and websites.
