Taiwan high school girls’ everyday life aesthetic practices on Instagram: The affordance approach

In partnership with our Editors and Network Partners the Communication & Media Studies Research Network is curated by Common Ground Research Networks. Founded in 1984, Common Ground Research Networks is committed to building new kinds of knowledge communities, innovative in their media and forward thinking in their messages. Common Ground Research Networks takes some of the pivotal challenges of our time and builds research networks which cut horizontally across legacy knowledge structures. Sustainability, diversity, learning, the future of humanities, the nature of interdisciplinarity, the place of the arts in society, technology’s connections with knowledge, the changing role of the university—these are deeply important questions of our time which require interdisciplinary thinking, global conversations, and cross-institutional intellectual collaborations. Common Ground is a meeting place for people, ideas, and dialogue. However, the strength of ideas does not come from finding common denominators. Rather, the power and resilience of these ideas is that they are presented and tested in a shared space where differences can meet and safely connect—differences of perspective, experience, knowledge base, methodology, geographical or cultural origins, and institutional affiliation. These are the kinds of vigorous and sympathetic academic milieus in which the most productive deliberations about the future can be held. We strive to create places of intellectual interaction and imagination that our future deserves.

A feasibility study on the adoption of e-learning for public health nurse continuing education in Taiwan

A feasibility study on the adoption of e-learning for public health nurse continuing education in Taiwan

PHNs’ previous e-learning experience One important statistic presented in this study is that only 9.87% of subjects had ever before partic- ipated in an e-learning program. Studies are lacking for comparison but we have compared this impor- tant data with percentages of personal computers and internet access in Taiwan. This obviously low rate of previous e-learning experience by PHNs par- ticipating in this study might imply that fewer PHNs have used the internet for professional develop- ment in past two decades, even though e-learning has been applied to nursing education (Yu and Yang, 2006). Reinert and Fryback (1997) surveyed 353 schools of the American Nursing School Alli- ance and found that web-based courses have in- creased more than five-fold in the past 5 years. In the future, it is believed that the rate of e-learning will be maintained incrementally. Therefore, in or- der to produce a significant educational impact, it is important to conduct more studies to determine barriers to e-learning for nurses.

A Study on the Termination Behavior of Residential Mortgages in Taiwan

A Study on the Termination Behavior of Residential Mortgages in Taiwan

For prepayment behavior, results show that the loan to value ratio, payment to income ratio, regional variation, unemployment rates, divorce rates and negative housing equity have significant negative impact on prepayment; and the decrease of market interest rates have positive influence on prepayment behavior. The influence directions of variables on prepayment are mostly opposite against default. The only differences are that mortgage term shows insignificant positive impact on prepayment, and that regional variation shows significant negative impact on both prepayment and default. This might indicate that the borrowers in urban areas in Taiwan tend to neither prepay nor default, due to heavy burdens of housing affordability and comprehension of the importance of credit. Furthermore, the loan size is not a significant factor, however, other elements in the loan contract, such as LTV and PTI, have shown their effects.

Curriculum for building medical resources on the internet-experience in taiwan.

Abstract This paper describes our experience with a one-semester course on how to build a medically-related homepage on the Internet, designed for fourth-year medical students. Based on the assumption of limited technical knowledge of the Internet, this class taught students Internet-exploring skills, multimedia authoring and HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) in the first eight-week period. Students were then divided into four-person teams and asked to select a topic for a homepage. These teams were then asked to collect the necessary resources for the development of the homepage both through individual work and, consultation with an advisor. Each group project for building medically-related homepage was accomplished and presented in the remaining four-week period. The resultant projects of these fourth-year medical students were of surprisingly good content and high quality.

A study of airborne particulate metals in the surroundings of an electric arc furnace factory and its effect on the pulmonary function of school children in central Taiwan

A study of airborne particulate metals in the surroundings of an electric arc furnace factory and its effect on the pulmonary function of school children in central Taiwan

a Department of Health Risk Management, China Medical University 91 Hsueh-Shih Road, Taichung 404, Taiwan Abstract Electric arc furnaces (EAF) are used in the steel industry to convert pig iron, scrap and other iron units to steel. It is widely used in Taiwan to produce carbon and steel alloys. However, it is estimated that approximately 10-25 kg of dust is generated per ton of steel produced when scrap is remelted by EAF. In Taiwan, EAFs discharge approximately 170,000 tons of dust annually. Moreover, chemical analysis showed that concentrations of Cr, Cu, Mn, Mo, Ni, Se, Ag, Sn, V, and Zn in EAF dust were significantly greater than background soil concentrations. The mass of respirable particles as well as the chemical composition of the particles has been identified to be potentially responsible for various deleterious effects on human health. The present study combined air sampling with pulmonary function tests (PFTs) to determine both the extent of air pollution proximal to an electric arc furnace and its impact on human health. The mass concentrations of PM 10 and PM 2.5 in exposure areas were not significantly higher than the samples taken at a control area. However, the concentrations of five metal elements, Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, and Zn in PM 2.5 were increased with decreasing distance from the emission source. PFTs showed that the average forced vital capacity (FVC) of boys was decreased with decreasing distance from the EAF factory. With normalization of pulmonary function by age, height and weight, we found that the △FVC became more negative with a decrease in distance from the EAF. Lastly, regression analysis was performed to analyze the impact of the concentrations of the five metals in PM 2.5 on the performance of pulmonary function.

A Study for Insolvency in the Life Insurance Industry of Taiwan

A Study for Insolvency in the Life Insurance Industry of Taiwan

Here the “σ” expresses the standard variance of β. 5. Conclusions The purpose of this study is to evaluate financial ratios as well as predictors of life insurers’ insolvency. First, we employ factor analysis to reduce the variable, and we find that the accident and health business ratio, change in fixed asset ratio, change in liquid asset ratio, and change in loan ratio are important factors for Taiwanese life insurers’ insolvency. Thus, Taiwan’s insurance commoners should be focus on the change in the fixed asset ratio, and changes in the liquid asset ratio are always very significant at insolvency. We then employ the logistic and MDA model to estimate the probability of insolvency, and the variable is the factor scores in the current year.

A study of alternative broadcasting technologies for the extension of DTV coverage in Taiwan

A study of alternative broadcasting technologies for the extension of DTV coverage in Taiwan

The entire VHF band will become available by then. A PPENDIX A V ALIDATION OF THE 2-D W AVE P ROPAGATION M ODEL In order to verify the accuracy of the 2-D wave propagation computer model, a group of predicted signal strength data is compared with the actual measured signal strength in the field. The validation exercise in- volves DTV transmission at channel 35 in the UHF band, and NTSC transmission at channel 11 in the VHF band from the Northern Sta- tion. Field strength data are measured along three paths in the northern part of Taiwan. Fig. 3 illustrates the 45 measurement locations along the three paths P1, P2, and P3. Figs. 4–6 illustrate the measured and predicted DTV signal strengths along paths P1, P2 and P3 respec- tively. Figs. 7–9 illustrate the measured and predicted NTSC signal strengths along paths P1, P2 and P3 respectively. From these figures, it is found that the means of the estimation error (") range between 0.2 dB and 07.2 dB, and the standard deviations ( " ) range between 6 dB and 9 dB. The relatively close match between the measured and predicted field strength data shows that the 2-D wave propagation com- puter model is an acceptable tool to estimate radio coverage.

A study of the effects of internship experiences on the behavioural intentions of college students majoring in leisure management in Taiwan

A study of the effects of internship experiences on the behavioural intentions of college students majoring in leisure management in Taiwan

1. A positive internship experience significantly affects behavioural intentions. 2. A negative internship experience significantly affects behavioural intentions. Literature review Taiwanese college HE traditionally emphasises teaching theoretical knowledge. Once engaged in their career, students who have graduated from college often realise that the real-world work situation is vastly different from the theory they learned (Huang & Huang, 2004). Consequently, colleges have begun to work with industries to arrange internship programmes so that students can become acquainted with business operations and the work environment. Internship is part of the college/industry co-operation programme through which students at universities in Taiwan are offered workplace learning opportunities, in partnership with leisure organisations. Their education takes place both in college and in industry, with the intention of reinforcing both learning and career development through providing an effective internship experience.
