During the last years, hand vein patterns recognition is one of the most recent biometric technologies used for the identification/verification of individuals. The vein trace is hard to damaged, changed or falsified since veins are internal to the human body. In this work, a novel palm vein recognition and verification system is presented. The system work flow passes through two main phases: (i) the enrollment phase and (ii) the recognition phase. In the enrollment phase, the biometric system is trained to identity a specific person. While, in the recognition phase, the system tries to identify who is the person (in case of identification) or to verify is the person who he/she claims to be (in case of verification).
Survival Analysis is important in many areas. In medical research, the length of time between onset and cessation of a disease is of vital importance as well as the length of time required for a drug to reach therapeutic levels in the body. In business, product life and employee turnover, both measures of duration, are parts of corporate planning. In the social sciences, political scientists study the long- term impact of political decisions, while sociologists are concerned with the lasting effects of poverty on children and the long-term effect of admittance to a nursing home on the elderly. Duration of college enrollment is of the up-most importance to college educators. It is safe to assume that a democratic society functions best with a literate populace. Consequently, educational policy makers must become better informed about individual and social factors that affect student academic decision-making, considering the individual, institutional, and societal costs associated with student departure. This study analyzed the departure patterns exhibited by students enrolled in a large, private church-related university over a six-year period.
The purpose of this book is to analyze how potential college-bound and current students make meaning about the higher education experience from the film that is pivotal in the American college culture and sets the trend for future college-themed films National Lampoon's Animal House (1978). The research question is offered: What does National Lampoon's Animal House (1978) communicate about administrators, students, professors, and in general, the college experience? Another research question addresses meaning: Is the screenwriter's message the message received by audiences? This book will be useful to college admissions consultants and recruiters as they attempt to understand students' perceptions of higher education and how these perceptions may affect enrollment as well as degree persistence, shed light on the effects of mass media and how the media may influence viewers' perception of reality, serve as a guide for how one creates news patterns of meaning, extends current attitudes and behaviors, and/or dissolves a way of thinking by applying the Kaleidoscope Effect.
The weather variability-economic growth nexus is a matter of great importance. But few studies have sought to investigate the subject empirically among the low-income countries. The increasing population growth rate and the gradually widening scale of industrial operations in these countries and elsewhere in the world have implications beyond real gross fixed capital formation, the gross secondary school enrollment rate and on the whole process of development of a country. Studies that have investigated the matter have used variant approaches, which leave the debate unsettled. This book is an outcome of this concern and sought to understand the association that erratic weather has on Kenya's economic growth. Using the time series data and incorporating the weather variables of rainfall and temperature, the results reveal that unpredictable weather is not without important economic ramifications and that it has "far reaching implications on food security, employment and trade." The findings are particularly important to the national and county government policy makers so that the vulnerable are cushioned and helped to adapt in the face of unprecedented weather patterns.
What went wrong with our Technical and Vocational training? Is it our curriculum, training culture, low value attached to such training, or lack of appropriate information? In Kenya, the large number of primary school leavers cannot be accommodated fully in the available vacancies in the secondary schools. Some of those who cannot proceed to secondary school may join the micro-small scale enterprise while the remaining are expected to join the youth polytechnics for skill development. However, a trend seems to have emerged where the YPs in the recent past have recorded low enrollment. This research aimed at carrying out a comprehensive investigation of the factors that may have led to low enrollment patterns in youth polytechnics in Kericho, Bureti and Bomet districts. Simple random sampling technique was used to select 180 YP students, 63 instructors, 90 parents, 90 YP graduates and 90 youths not enrolled from the neighborhoods of YPs. 18 YP Principals and 18 Deputy Principals were selected for interview. This gave a sample of 513 respondents. The study was both quantitative and qualitative. Data was collected using questionnaires, interviews, discussions and observations.
Revision with unchanged content. In contemporary society, high school students and early career adults face a bewildering variety of postsecondary educational choices, working adults may find that career advancement or transition will require new types of information literacy skills or other postsecondary education. Forces such as the information explosion, access to the Internet, and economic globalization are influencing careers and changing the educational landscape. At American colleges and universities, nontraditional enrollment patterns are becoming increasingly commonplace, as students and institutions adapt to a new socio-cultural environment. Based on an innovative research design, employing a national sample of household education survey data and multi-phase statistical analysis, this empirical study evaluates the influence of contextual characteristics and student motivations on postsecondary participation in credential programs, including vocational/technical as well as college/university programs. In addition to researchers in the social sciences and higher education policy makers, this book is for anyone with an interest in educational preparation and skills for the 21st century workplace.
School feeding programs enhance the efficiency of the education system by improving enrollment, reducing dropouts and increasing perseverance. They also have the potential to reach the poor, directly making them an effective social safety net. In many low-resource countries, school feeding programs are designed to protect children from the effects of hunger. Unfortunately, the continuity of such programs is threatened by over-reliance on external funding. Given the patterns of withdrawal of external support, countries that rely on donor funds to implement such programs need to develop plans that will move them from external to localized support. It is well documented that programs that involve community members are self-sustaining. Regrettably, even though community members are involved in school feeding programs in Malawi, their participation is restricted to food storage and preparation and doesn t include decision making. Thus the transition plan for Malawi has to deliberately involve community members and influence them to take ownership of the school feeding programs. One way that has proved to be effective is to use social marketing strategy to influence behavior change.
