We know that curriculum is the core of the classroom experience, but what makes a quality curriculum?

Case study: How Barclays is setting clear and consistent expectations of behaviour for its employees, ensuring societal and environmental considerations are taken into account in decision-making

In 2012 Barclays was fined £290m to settle claims that it manipulated the London Interbank Offered Rate (Libor). A former Barclays banker, accused of manipulating the Libor interest rate, said he only did what he was told to do by his boss, without realizing it was wrong. The trial of five former Barclays employees charged with conspiracy to defraud by rigging US dollar Libor rates began in April 2016.

In the aftermath of the Libor scandal, a key material issue for Barclays is ensuring proper governance and conduct, with a clear, accessible and well-communicated global code of conduct for all its employees. In order to set clear and consistent expectations of behaviour fo

Case study: How Coca-Cola is ensuring the sustainability of local water sources everywhere it operates

Communities across the world rely on a sufficient quantity of safe, accessible water from sustainable ecosystems for their continued prosperity. For Coca-Cola and its bottling partners, water is equally important. It is the primary ingredient in its products, it enables its manufacturing processes and it is fundamental to the cultivation of the diverse crops Coca-Cola depends upon for its beverage ingredients and, in some cases, even its packaging.

Coca-Cola is a global company, with its products sold in more than 200 countries and territories. Where it can, Coca-Cola utilizes a localized operational approach as much as possible – making its products in the same markets where it sells to its customers. This creates a business imperative that complements Coca-Co

Now, drawing on his experiences as a father, a player, and a coach to his charges at his youth baseball based organization, Ripken Baseball, the legend offers his insights and advice on how to approach organized sports with your kids to ensure they have the b

Genre : Economics
The Global Hunger Index is a comprehensive measure of hunger worldwide and by country and region. Although the proportion of hungry people around the world has declined since 1990, global hunger remains at a level characterized as “serious.” Global Hunger Index scores vary greatly across regions and countries.

This year’s report focuses particularly on how to ensure sustainable food security under conditions of land, water, and energy stresses. As a result of increasing natural resource scarcity—owing to population growth, higher incomes, unsustainable resource consumption, and poor policies and weak institutions—sustainable food security is now inextricably linked to developments in the land, water, and energy sectors. The stark reality is that the world needs to produce more food with fewer resources, while eliminating wasteful practices and policies. Many co

7 Aldo Leopold Wilderness: Ensuring a Legacy While Protecting "a Ruggedly Beautiful Country" (Report) - Journal of the Southwest
Auteur : Journal of the Southwest
Genre : Social Science
Aldo Leopold Wilderness is a special place, perhaps sacred as well as inspirational, which protects "a ruggedly beautiful country" in southwestern New Mexico. This congressionally designated wilderness of 202,016 acres is managed by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), which is also responsible for administering the Gila National Forest within which Aldo Leopold Wilderness is situated. The administrative histories of Aldo Leopold Wilderness and Gila National Forest are interwoven as a result of Department of Agriculture regulations and by public law. Administratively, Aldo Leopold Wilderness began as the eastern portion of the Gila Wilderness Area (1924), then became the Black Range Primitive Area (1933), and finally emerged as Aldo Leopold Wilderness (1980). This long, arduous, and occasionally confusing administrative evolution explains the efforts to provide enhanced federal protection for

11 Ensuring America's Health - Christy Ford Chapin
Auteur : Christy Ford Chapin
Genre : United States
Ensuring America's Health explains why the US health care system offers world-class medical services to some patients but is also exceedingly costly with fragmented care, poor distribution, and increasingly bureaucratized processes. Based on exhaustive historical research, this work traces how public and private power merged to favor a distinctive economic model that places insurance companies at the center of the system, where they both finance and oversee medical care. Although the insurance company model was created during the 1930s, it continues to drive health care cost and quality problems today. This wide-ranging work not only evaluates the overarching political and economic framework of the medical system but also provides rich narrative detail, examining the political dramas, corporate maneuverings, and forceful personalities that created American health care as we know it.

The authors argue for a forward-looking and conscious approach to the development and deployment of AI to ensure that it genuinely serves humanity’s best interest.

The reality is that AI will impact current sectors and jobs—and hopefully enable new ones. A smart approach requires us to think about and experiment with strategies for adopting and absorbing the impacts of AI—encompassing education systems, reskilling the workforce, unemployment and guaranteed basic incomes, robot taxes, job creation, encouraging new ventures, research and devel

36 Ensuring the Integrity, Accessibility, and Stewardship of Research Data In the Digital Age - Committee on Ensuring the Utility and Integrity of Research Data in a Digital Age & National Academy of Sciences
Auteur : Committee on Ensuring the Utility and Integrity of Research Data in a Digital Age & National Academy of Sciences
Genre : Science & Nature
As digital technologies are expanding the power and reach of research, they are also raising complex issues. These include complications in ensuring the validity of research data; standards that do not keep pace with the high rate of innovation; restrictions on data sharing that reduce the ability of researchers to verify results and build on previous research; and huge increases in the amount of data being generated, creating severe challenges in preserving that data for long-term use.
Ensuring the Integrity, Accessibility, and Stewardship of Research Data in the Digital Age examines the consequences of the changes affecting research data with respect to three issues - integrity, accessibility, and stewardship-and finds a need for a new approach to the design and the management of research projects. The report recommends that all researchers receive appropriate training in the man

Auteur : Committee on a New Biology for the 21st Century: Ensuring the United States Leads the Coming Biology Revolution & National Research Council
Genre : Life Sciences
Now more than ever, biology has the potential to contribute practical solutions to many of the major challenges confronting the United States and the world. A New Biology for the 21st Century recommends that a "New Biology" approach--one that depends on greater integration within biology, and closer collaboration with physical, computational, and earth scientists, mathematicians and engineers--be used to find solutions to four key societal needs: sustainable food production, ecosystem restoration, optimized biofuel production, and improvement in human health. The approach calls for a coordinated effort to leverage resources across the federal, private, and academic sectors to help meet challenges and improve the return on life science research in general.

38 Sea Basing - Committee on Sea Basing: Ensuring Joint Force Access from the Sea
Auteur : Committee on Sea Basing: Ensuring Joint Force Access from the Sea
Genre : Engineering
The availability of land bases from which to launch and maintain military, diplomatic, and humanitarian relief operations is becoming increasingly uncertain because of physical or political constraints. The ability to operate from a sea base, therefore, is likely to become more and more important. The Defense Science Board recently concluded that Sea Basing will be a critical future joint military capability and that DOD should proceed to develop such capability. Following the DSB report, the Navy requested that the National Research Council (NRC) convene a workshop to assess the science and technology base, both inside and outside the Navy, for developing Sea Basing and to identify R&D for supporting future concepts. This report of the workshop includes an examination of Sea Basing operational concepts; ship and aircraft technology available to make Sea Basing work; and issues invol

40 "Ensuring So Grave a Choice is Well Informed": The Use of Abortion Informed Consent Laws to Promote State Interests in Unborn Life. - Notre Dame Law Review
Auteur : Notre Dame Law Review
Genre : Law
INTRODUCTION With its 2007 decision in Gonzales v. Carhart, (1) the Supreme Court essentially invited states to regulate abortion through informed consent statutes. (2) Noting the power that informed consent statutes have to persuade a woman to choose childbirth over abortion, Justice Kennedy, writing for the Court, stated that "[t]he government may use its voice and its regulatory authority to show its profound respect for the life within the woman." (3) Kennedy addressed the importance of informed consent laws directly, stating that "some doctors may prefer not to disclose precise details of the means that will be used," particularly in abortion procedures. (4) "[The] lack of information concerning the way in which the fetus will be killed ... is of legitimate concern to the State. The State has an interest in ensuring so grave a choice is well informed." (5) Kennedy encouraged states

41 When Your Attorney is Your Enemy: Preliminary Thoughts on Ensuring Effective Representation for Queer Youth. (Gender on the Frontiers: Confronting Intersectionalities) - Columbia Journal of Gender and Law
Auteur : Columbia Journal of Gender and Law
Genre : Law
Attorneys representing children too often become their enemies (1) rather than their advocates. This is especially true when the children are queer. (2) Queer youth caught in the judicial (3) system are often severely harmed, (4) specifically because of where a court decides they will reside. Judges determine where children will reside through custody decisions, or by deciding whether they will be placed in foster care, group homes, or detention facilities in child welfare and delinquency proceedings. (5) Once in the justice system, most children are provided an attorney in part because courts have recognized that children have a liberty interest at stake in the proceedings, (6) including a right to "reasonably safe living conditions" and services necessary to ensure protection from harm. (7) Where a child will be placed is always an important issue in cases involving juveniles and thus

42 Ensuring Safe and Effective Practice: Fitness for Practice at the Point of Registration (Education AND Practice) (Report) - Journal of Perioperative Practice
Auteur : Journal of Perioperative Practice
Genre : Health & Fitness
Introduction The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is the regulator for nurses and midwives. The Council's main purpose is to protect the public. This is achieved by keeping a register of three parts: for nurses, midwives and specialist community public health nurses (SCPHN). Registration assures the public that a registrant is capable of safe and effective practice without supervision; that the registrant has met the NMC requirements for entry to or staying on the register; and is entitled to use the protected title according to the part or parts of the register on which the registrant holds effective registration (for example, registered nurse, midwife or SCPHN). The NMC also sets standards for education, training, conduct, performance and ethics.

Sustainable
44 Ensuring a Sustainable Future - Jody Heymann & Magda Barrera
Auteur : Jody Heymann & Magda Barrera
Genre : Medical
There is very little argument that the world is facing severe environmental challenges. Ongoing air and water pollution, increasing energy consumption, and the depletion of natural resources have all placed considerable stress on the capacity of our environment to support the present quality of human life in a sustainable manner. Ensuring a Sustainable Future does what few previous works have: it examines these trends' disproportionate impact on the poor and the economically viable solutions that can serve to remedy them -- solutions that simultaneously address environmental and economic problems. This gap in previous research, evidence, and writing has left low-income countries often unwilling to take on major environmental problems and many poor communities believing they faced impossible choices between improving the environment in which they live and increasing the jobs and income

45 Alone: Reducing the Risks: Many Community Practitioners Work Alone for at Least Some of the Time, And both Employers and Employees have Responsibilities in Ensuring That Risks are Assessed and Controlled and That Reasonable Care is Taken to Make Lone Working As Safe As Possible (Your Rights at Work) - Dave Munday
Auteur : Dave Munday
Genre : Health & Fitness
Many who work in public services may be surprised that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) frequently get asked whether 'lone working' is against the law. (1) You will be unsurprised to hear its answer that 'working alone is not in itself against the law, and it will often be safe to do so'. However, the law requires employers and others to think about and deal with any health and safety risks before people should be allowed to work alone. Employers have responsibility for the health, safety and welfare at work of all of their employees. They are also responsible for the health and safety of those affected by work activities, for example any self-employed people that they engage and visitors such as contractors. These responsibilities cannot be transferred to any other person, including those working alone. It is the employer's duty to assess risks to lone workers and take steps to

I. INTRODUCTION Mobile commerce is gradually emerging as a new commercial environment in the U.S., facilitated by the increasing numbers of consumers who have mobile phones and other portable wireless electronic communications devices. (1) No longer simply a mobile telephone, mobile phones offer new communications and information services. (2) Mobile commerce will enable consumers to use their mobile phones to conveniently purchase goods and services (like parking passes or theater tickets) and to receive timely information content (like directions and maps). (3) Mobile commerce is also generating new advertising opportunities for suppliers of new and existing products and services directed at consumers through their mobile phones. (4) Consumers may welcome mobile advertising or view it as an annoyance. In either case, this Article argues that consumers and advertisers should be concerne

EAS (Employee Assistance Services) is a company that provides employee assistance programs to different businesses in Chile. The programs cover around 12,900 workers, which entails 45,200 eligible persons when considering family groups. EAS provides its services to companies located throughout Chile, so it needs to satisfy demand within a territory of more than 750,000 square kilometers (approximately 290,000 square miles, which is slightly smaller than twice the size of Montana). This involves coordinating networks to provide services that cover each and every city in the country.
