Angel and Faith: Season Ten Volume 4 A Little More Than Kin
This study examines the level of knowledge, attitude and practice of family planning among men. The study revealed that men have relatively considerable knowledge and encouraging positive attitude towards female family planning methods than male family planning methods. Female family planning methods were the most commonly used methods than male family planning methods. The gap between knowledge and practice of male family planning methods was very wide. moreover, future prevalence and practice of male methods seemed to be low. As Men’s educational level and income increases, their participation of using family planning methods also increases. Men having some kind of job practiced male methods higher than those without job. The study implies that higher level of education, access to job opportunities and income play a great role in increasing men’s participation in family planning.
The book covers argumentation and conflict resolution from diverse theoretical perspectives: semantic, semiotic, rhetorical, dialectical,and human relations points of view in particular. Several argumentation theories are summarized along with a grounding in general semantics,organizational behavior, total quality management, and ethical interpersonal relations. The concept of a mindful dialectic is introduced and developed in the text. The mindful dialectic involves the pursuit of dispute resolution and conflict management in the most harmonious and least offensive manner available to someone involved in a disagreement. The mindful dialectic prefers the gentle and the genteel to the less than gentle and genteel in human relations while retaining an openness to being other than kind and diplomatic if unusual circumstances demand it. Improving human relations in controversy constitutes the primary thrust of the text and its methods.
With more than 29,000 species, fishes are the most diverse group of vertebrates on the planet. Of that number, more than 12,000 species are found in freshwater ecosystems, which occupy less than 1 percent of the Earth's surface and contain only 2.4 percent of plant and animal species. But, on a hectare-for-hectare basis, freshwater ecosystems are richer in species than more extensive terrestrial and marine habitats. Examination of the distribution patterns of fishes in these fresh waters reveals much about continental movements and climate changes and has long been critical to biogeographical studies and research in ecology and evolution. Tim Berra's seminal resource, Freshwater Fish Distribution, maps the 169 fish families that swim in fresh water around the world. Each family account includes the class, subclass, and order; a pronunciation guide to the family name; life cycle information; and interesting natural history facts. Each account is illustrated, many with historical nineteenth-century woodcuts. Now available in paperback, this heavily cited work in ichthyology and biogeography will serve as a reference for students, a research support for professors, and a helpful guide to tropical fish hobbyists and anglers.
Voluntary organizations, which differ from other organizations in the way they reward and retain members, can easily suffer setbacks from a loss of membership. Poorly managed conflict is often a source of attrition. This study examines the relationship between personality, conflict styles, and membership duration of people who attend or have attended churches (primarily Protestant churches), the most common form of voluntary association in America. Most of the Big 5 personality traits significantly predict conflict styles and/or membership duration. For example, people who are extraverted, agreeable, and conscientious are more likely to use a collaborative conflict style than those who are not. People who are high in both agreeableness and conscientiousness are less likely to quit an organization when conflict arises than those who are medium to low in either of these traits. The relationships between conflict styles and membership duration vary according to gender. For example, men who often use a competitive conflict style are more likely to stay in an organization than are women who tend to use this style.
The size and composition of the family in Singapore has gradually changed over the past 30 years. The traditional extended family network is being replaced by the smaller and more compact nuclear family. Time constraints, economic pressure and the perceived need for a “quality lifestyle” have deterred many parents from having more than two children. This birth dearth in a small resource-strapped country like Singapore was noted as a ‘severe problem'' by the government.This study supports the government''s pro-creation policy of encouraging married couples to have more than one child by highlighting the benefits of sibling on the children''s socio-emotional competence. The current study provides other researchers, practitioners and parents with information on the type of conflict strategies sibling dyads use when at play with one another. Hopefully, parents would be able to discern when to intervene during sibling conflict and when to let siblings beneficially resolve their own disputes. It is hoped that this current research would provide a springboard for future local research in the area of sibling relationship in preschool years.
The composite construction was found to be more economical than Reinforced Concrete Construction. The total weight of super structure was found to be very less for Composite Construction than in case of Reinforced Concrete Construction which will result in lighter footing for same number of stories in Composite Structure or in case of equivalent footing as for Reinforced Concrete Construction, more number of storeys can be added. Construction time in case of Composite Structure is very less as compared to construction time of Reinforced Concrete Construction which will result in appreciable saving in labour cost. As the composite structure is lighter than Reinforced Concrete Structure, its natural time period is also lesser than that of Reinforced Concrete Structure, therefore, Composite Structure is less critical in case of seismic loading.
Hard work had made Jeremiah rich: at the age of forty-four he was one of the wealthiest mining barons in America. When he married the captivating Camille - less than half his age - he was looking for more than love. He was looking for a woman to found a great family. And for that family he built a mansion: Thurston House. The vast mansion was the finest in the city - a palace for a prince, a princess and their children. In bricks and mortar, turrets and columns, it symbolised the great power of the new dynasty it was to house. Manx generations would live and love and die in Thurston House. Each generation would ask itself whether money alone can buy happiness, a family and love.
Work-life balance is usually associated with flexible working, reductions in working time, and practices that cater to the need to juggle both family and employer demands. Work-family conflict is defined as a type of inter-role conflict wherein some responsibilities from the work and family domains are not compatible and have a negative influence on an employee’s work situation. Family-work conflict also is a type of inter-role conflict in which family and work responsibilities are not compatible. Family-work conflict is more likely to exert its negative influences in the home domain, resulting in lower life satisfaction and greater internal conflict within the family unit. This book highlights the Work- family conflict (WFC) and Family Work Conflict (FWC) among the married women, the various coping patterns used by the married women employees, the quality of life of married women employees and the differences based on various socio-demographic factors and quality of life, coping patterns and work family conflict and family work conflict of married women employees.
