This study examines the state of military libraries around the world by focusing on satisfaction with specific facets of library services and their perceived impact on retention and quality of life. Using a combination of quantitative and qualitative techniques (i.e., interviews with Head Librarians for each branch of service; focus groups of military members and dependents conducted at CONUS and OCONUS locations), the study addressed the following issues: meeting the needs of the military community; duplication of services available from local public libraries; quality of service; technology; adequacy of facilities, equipment ...
tend to be of emotional events, which are likely to be recalled more often and with more clarity and detail than neutral events. The activity of emotionally enhanced memory retention can be linked to human evolution; during early development, responsive behavior to environmental events would have progressed as a process of trial and error. Survival depended on behavioral patterns that were repeated or reinforced through life and death situations. Through evolution, this process of learning became genetically embedded in humans and all animal species in what is known as "fight or flight" instinct. Artificially inducing ...
Interpersonal and Group Process Approaches
focuses on conflicts arising between two or more people within the same organization. Conflict is inherent in groups and organizations and can arise from a variety of sources, include differences in personality, task orientation, and perceptions among group members, as well as competition for scarce resources. To emphasize that conflict is neither good nor bad per se is important. Conflict can enhance motivation and innovation and lead to greater understanding of ideas and views. On the other hand, it can prevent people from working together constructively, destroying necessary task interactions among group members. ... market research, surveys and trends

The Department of Defense, General Services Administration, and National Aeronautics and Space Administration have issued an interim rule requiring federal contractors to make certain disclosures regarding first-tier subcontract awards. The rule requires contractors to report first-tier subcontract awards expected to be $25,000 or more and for certain larger government contractors - to report the executive compensation of the top five executives of both the contractor and subcontractor. A "first-tier" subcontract is one made directly with the company contracting directly with the federal government.  The information will ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The "Real World" creator has some explaining to do
You may not know who Jonathan Murray is, but if you've turned on a television in the last 18 years, odds are that you've seen some of his work.  As one-half of the production team Bunim/Murray (his partner, Mary Ellen Bunim, died in 2004 of breast cancer), he ushered in the age of reality television, with credits on everything from "The Real World"  to "Project Runway" and "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."  It's hard to overestimate the impact that "The Real World," which Murray co-created with Bunim in 1992, has had on American popular culture. The show, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The Real Challenge for Higher Education
America, once the world’s most educated nation, is fast losing ground. Although we are still second in overall education levels, we are much weaker -- 11th -- in the proportion of younger people with a college degree. In a world where knowledge increasingly drives economic competitiveness, this is a very serious problem. The issue is more than abstract economics, it’s also a moral concern: Since 1970, the benefits of higher education have been very unequally apportioned, with the top income quartile profiting hugely and the bottom hardly moving at all (despite starting from a very low level). America’s education problem has been ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

In a very general sense, my research focuses on the immediate, episodic experiences of people while at work. So, we have been studying people’s emotional states at work, what influences these states and how they in turn influence immediate work behaviors and longer term work attitudes. This has led us to begin studying “off task thinking” or attentional focus at work, encompassing such topics as daydreaming, rumination, stimulus independent thought, etc. Our research questions are how off-task thinking interferes with performance, how such thinking is driven by emotional states, and how people are or are not able to regulate ...
PMS. WTF. | Ask MetaFilter
I'm not sure you're thinking about evolution in the right way, although I understand the temptation, given all the foolish "evolutionary psychology" BS floating around to think that everything lasting in the human condition was selected for. In fact, as long as it doesn't interfere with human survival, there's no reason to think that it was ever the target of evolutionary pressure. Of course, one can concoct a story, again, ala the brilliance of evolutionary psychologists, for why it should have been the subject of evolutionary pressure, but it would be a myth. sometimes nonuseful things evolve because ...
