"Policy research on African agriculture is long on prescriptions for what needs to be done to spur agricultural growth but short on how such prescriptions might be implemented in practice. What explains this state of affairs? What might be done to correct it, and, most important, how? This paper addresses these questions via a comprehensive review and assessment of the literature on the role and impact of research in policy processes. Six major schools of thought are identified: the rational model; pragmatism under bounded rationality; innovation diffusion; knowledge management; impact assessment; and evidence-based-practice. ...
The theory attempted to establish a balance between two major methodological traditions, that of the utilitarian-positivist tradition on the one hand and the hermeneutic-idealistic tradition on the other.

What does Christ Consciouness as a pattern in the Universal mind ...
I've heard that the word "Christ" means 'anointed to deliver'.

This is how I currently view 'getting to God through him'--through our actions and attempts to emulate the loving will to good that Jesus demonstrated. The trinity reflected within ourselves can be seen from various viewpoints. Yours is one. I see that Father energy as radiant, male, shining, pure spirit energy. The female aspect would be our bodies (physical, emotional, ...
