The Challenges of the Knowledge Society of the Information Age

The Challenges of the Knowledge Society of the Information Age

Policy interest has been sparked at a more localised level too. For example, the Government of the Balearic Islands is making a major effort to attract such professional teleworkers, not necessarily on a permanent basis, to the Islands. In the UK, many local authorities and development agencies, mainly but not exclusively in rural areas, have sought to kick-start such development through support to various from of ‘tele-cottages’ – centres through which telematics services are made available to a region or locality’s business community (Gillespie et al, 1995). The rationale behind such centres is to provide hands-on experience, demonstrations of what is possible, and, perhaps most importanlty, complimentary services such as advice and training to aid processes of awareness, adoption and use.

About the portuguese reality of ICT in education

The main interest of the researcher is to understand at what level the policy and the official discourse is translated in concrete measures that allow an effective and regular use of ICT in the activities promoted at the school level, and if those measures are, in fact, a factor of innovation of the teaching and learning processes (Papert, 1993, 1996) and an important impulse of society development in general, values many times proclaimed but not always fulfilled (Cuban, 1993, 2001; Salomon, 2002).

Objective: To analyze the literature on permanent education, identifying the conceptual evolution and its application in health services in Brazil. Method: An integrative review of the literature was performed. A total of 54 studies written in English, Portuguese and Spanish, published from January 1970 to May 2016 from the databases of the Virtual Health Library, were included. Results: Conceptual problematization was highlighted as a contribution to educational actions, indicating a conceptual development of permanent education in Brazil. However, permanent education actions sometimes occur independently from the work process. There are diiculties in understanding and application, with repercussions for health services, revealing that professionals' and managers' commitment is a challenge. Implications for practice: Continuing education is a ield that lacks investments for the transformation of reality in the health service routine in Brazil.

REFLECTIONS ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF INFORMATION SOCIETY IN ROMANIA

REFLECTIONS ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF INFORMATION SOCIETY IN ROMANIA

Although there is in the specialized literature a wide variety of authorized opinions formulated in sphere of conceptual approach of information society (Ramsamy, 2010; Webster, 2014; Hilbert, 2015), however it is widely spread the idea that IS is considered to be a society in which the creation, distribution, use, integration and manipulation of information is an economical, political and cultural activity, with high degree of complexity registered at contemporary international community level. In the same time, it is important to note that the driving force of information society, essentially consists in digital information and communication technologies, that lead in an irreversible way to explosion of information and profound changes in all aspects of social organization, economics, education, health, environment and administration. Moreover, all members of IS that have the necessary means to participate at this type of society are suggestively called digital citizens.

notes on the distribution of information in the learning society :: Brapci ::

This article deals with the debate of scientific information access in the context of learning society, questioning its ideological point of view and its political philosophy particularly about the access to the academic scientific information. The text presents a perspective of the information society development in Brazil, from the analysis of the concept of a global information infrastructure introduced in the early 1990s, and relates the efforts to insert the Brazilian economy in the context of the information network. It criticizes the current model of learning society and proposes a new way to deal with informational competence and with the process of “learning how to learn”. Finally, it shows new questions about the subject, including even the regulation of the networks and the need to promote effectively the free access to scientific information.

The Influence of Small Amounts of Aluminium on the Spheroidization of Cast Iron with Cerium Mischmetal

The Influence of Small Amounts of Aluminium on the Spheroidization of Cast Iron with Cerium Mischmetal

The influence of aluminium (added in quantity from about 0.6% to about 2.8%) on both the alloy matrix and the shape of graphite precipitates in cast iron treated with a fixed amounts of cerium mischmetal (0.11%) and ferrosilicon (1.29%) is discussed in the paper. The metallographic examinations were carried out for specimens cut out of the separately cast rods of 20 mm diameter. It was found that the addition of aluminium in the amounts from about 0.6% to about 1.1% to the cast iron containing about 3% of carbon, about 3.7% of silicon (after graphitizing modification), and 0.1% of manganese leads to the occurrence of the ferrite-pearlite matrix containing cementite precipitates in the case of the treatment of the alloy with cerium mischmetal . The increase in the quantity of aluminium up to about 1.9% or up to about 2.8% results either in purely ferrite matrix in this first case or in ferrite matrix containing small amounts of pearlite in the latter one. Nodular graphite precipitates occurred only in cast iron containing 1.9% or 2.8% of aluminium, and the greater aluminium content resulted in the higher degree of graphite spheroidization. The noticeable amount of vermicular graphite precipitates accompanied the nodular graphite.

fication, the data were categorised according to the topics that were addressed in the body of analysis. Categorisation consists of three stages: pre-analysis; exploration of the ma- terial; and treatment of the results. The first stage, pre-anal- ysis, consisted of skim reading the collected material with the use of exhaustiveness, representativeness, homogene- ity, pertinence, and exclusivity of data. In the second stage, the material from the research was explored and the data were encoded in units of meaning after exhaustive read- ings. In this stage, the categories are built to group the data elements with common characteristics, namely powerful strategies to promote permanent healthcare education ac- tions from facilitating nurses and limitations for the devel- opment of these actions. Finally, the third stage consisted of treating the obtained results by means of interpretation.

UNIFESP Info Plastica – An informative application covering the most frequently performed plastic surgeries worldwide

UNIFESP Info Plastica – An informative application covering the most frequently performed plastic surgeries worldwide

An increasing number of people are accessing websites in search of health knowledge (17). In the US, 74% of adults use the Internet with 8 of 10 users seeking medical infor- mation through online content (18,19). Among these users, 70% report that the information found affects their treatment decision (10). In Brazil, a study showed that 44.7% of parti- cipants had performed an Internet search relating to their child’s health (21). Regarding plastic surgery, it has been observed that 34% of sites related to the ‘‘breast augmentation’’ topic presented false or misleading information about the surgical technique, benefits and risks (22). This lack of reliable online literature led the authors to create an application that would provide reliable information to the lay public.

Society of the Information: advances and retrocessions in the access and the use of the information :: Brapci ::

Society of the Information: advances and retrocessions in the access and the use of the information :: Brapci ::

A BSTRACT The Information Society (IS) may be taken as a geopolitical organization which started after the Third Industrial Revolution, having direct impact on the use of information and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The expression arose as techno-social paradigm change in the post-industrial society, aiming to use information as currency to the society-in-progress at that time. In Brazil it has become stronger with the Programa Sociedade da Informação no Brasil-Livro Verde, lunched by the Ministério da Ciência e Tecnologia, in September 2000 without any discussion with the civil society to formulate the main document. Our main goal in this article is to discuss the Information Society in contemporary times, and also the organized and conscious use of information, looking for key-concepts to a better understanding of it, from some topics as digital inclusion-exclusion to the use of digital informational resources.

INCLUSION PROPOSAL OF SANTA CLARA COMMUNITY IN THE INFORMATION SOCIETY

INCLUSION PROPOSAL OF SANTA CLARA COMMUNITY IN THE INFORMATION SOCIETY

Santa Clara is located nearby the Universidade Federal da Paraíba and suffers of several ways of exclusion. The Community is placed in the South of the João Pessoa city, to the side of the Road BR-230, between the residential buildings Castelo Branco I and II and the Jaguaribe River. The Santa Clara Community was born before the construction of the building Castelo Branco I, in 1967. For being a slope area, with barriers and stretches of streams, it was considered an inadequate place for living then it was placed by residents from neighbor farms with plantations of subsistence and also domestic raisings. This area was known as “Paul Molhado” and “Beira Molhada”. Formed in an area of big depression and of difficult access, the community does not offer a good physical structure to the ones who live there (NASCIMENTO, 2009, p.69) iii . In order to have access to the Community there are two options formed by slopes without steps or any kind of support, constituting a danger for the residents, mainly for the elderly and children. According to the directory of the Residents Association, currently there is in Santa Clara Community about four hundred housings and one thousand eight hundred inhabitants.

The Influence Of CSR Awareness On Consumer Purchase Decision Of A Telecommunication Network In Ghana A Case Of La Nkwantanag Madina Municipality

their purchasing behavior. The work on CSR and consumer choice could be a new growth opportunity for marketing. CSR initiatives with well-designed targets and high consumer awareness through communication could play an important role in successful marketing. Becker- Olsen et al. (2006) suspected the assumption that consumers will always reward firms for their socially responsible initiatives unselectively. They designed two studies to explore how consumers react to different CSR activities. In addition, they investigated the impact of the motivations and time choice of CSR initiatives. CSR activities that do not fit with a fir m‘s expertise have negative impact on consumers‘ attitudes toward a firm and the firm‘s credibility. Firms can be perceived as ―doing good‖ only by addressing selected CSR initiatives. CSR activities with low fitness with a firm are perceived as ―doing CSR business‖ by consumers, and lead to non-positive consumer evaluations. Perceived motivations of consumers have effect on consumers‘ evaluation of a firm and a firm‘s CSR initiatives. If consumers believe CSR initiatives are profit- driven rather than social-driven, then they will assess a firm and its credibility negatively. This leads to a low likelihood of consumers‘ purchase intention. The time of practicing CSR activities matters to consumers‘ assessments. Proactive CSR activities help firms get positive evaluations from consumers. In contrast, consumers regard reactive CSR activities as doing ―CSR business‖. Reactive CSR has non-positive contribution to a firm‘s image (Becker-Olsen et al., 2006).

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO THE PHILOSOPHY OF INFORMATION

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO THE PHILOSOPHY OF INFORMATION

Put this way, the reader might be left with the impression that the “philosophy of information” is merely philosophy concerning information and an attempt to determine what it is in the same sense that the philosophy of science is philosophy concerning science and what it is, but such an interpretation would be misleading. Given that “information” is a foundational con cept in a way that “science” is not, some have attempted to overhaul the philosophical enterprise by situating information at the forefront of philosophical enquiry, making the philosophy of information a new prima philosophia to take the place of earlier foundational metaphysics, though with varying ontological commitments. Hints of this maneuver are present in Dretske (1981) and specifically stated in Floridi (2011a). Indeed, Floridi points to a crisis at the heart of contemporary philosophy that can only be addressed by looking at information as more foundational than the traditional categories of knowledge and existence. Others, Deacon (2011) for instance, employ the notion of information biologically, mathematically and philosophically simultaneously to address questions regarding the emergence of mind from a physical substrate up to and including consciousness. Others still (particularly, KURZWEIL 2005) opt for far reaching informational analyses of historical and cultural transformation that have inspi red “singularitarianism”, which is sometimes characterized as a religion rather than a philosophy of information and is only rarely taken seriously within the academy.

Local health planning: care of the elderly versus Permanent Health Education

Documentary analysis technique was used for this purpose, which consists of identifying, verifying, and analyzing the documents of local planning to identify the health practices in the care of the elder- ly that are permeated by the PHE. Th e local health plans are public documents, organized by the local management of the BHUs, with annual periodicity, and are primary sources, i.e., documents that have not yet received analytical treatment, and therefore were used for interpretation and analysis.
