Mediated Competency Comparison between Job Descriptions and University Courses

Mediated Competency Comparison between Job Descriptions and University Courses

In order to establish and maintain IT empowered cooperation between universities and industrial organizations; on the one hand universities should be informed about trends in the labour market, and on the other hand industrial organizations should have an insight into trends of knowledge development in universities. Furthermore, taking into consideration that a competency is becoming a kind of "currency" in the labour market, there is a need to compare competency demand from the industrial organizations and competency offer from the universities in order to see if the university can satisfy competency needs of industrial organizations. The use of competency frameworks and mappings between competency frameworks can facilitate information exchange about the competencies. The paper describes the method and the prototype for mediated competency comparison with respect to job descriptions and university courses. The prototype conforms to the architecture of collaboration support system and its services that have been designed with the purpose to maintain and exchange information between universities and industrial organizations.

Insight into the Disciplinary Structure of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology

_Inorganic_&_Nuclear; 7: Chemistry_Multidisciplinary; 8: Chemistry_Physical; 9: Computer_Science_Hardware_&_Architecture; 10: Electrochemistry. 2.2.2 Analysis of Disciplinary Network Structure and Each Discipline’s Mediating Effect After obtaining the WC co-occurrence matrix, we can map the disciplinary network by employing Netdraw ( Johnson et al., 2009 ). The WC co-occurrence matrix we used here is the original matrix derived from the bibliographic data, and the Jaccard index method proposed by Leydesdorff (2008) has not been employed here, for the total disciplines

The Effects of B2C Interaction on Customer Loyalty

which two or more communication parties can act on each other, on the communication medium, and on the messages and also the degree to which these influences are synchronized during interaction.” This process-related variable relies on web interaction and shows the quality or condition of interaction ( Liang et al., 2010 ). Web interaction, involved with interactive tools, tools or devices, allows various entities to engage in mediated communication ( Varadarajan et al., 2010 ). Bauer et al. (2002) suggested that Internet-related technologies, especially

Rediscovering Don Swanson:The Past, Present and Future of Literature-based Discovery

hypothesis ( Swanson, 1993 ). Don made further analyses of complementary un-connected literatures, both by himself ( Swanson, 1990 ) and in collaboration with me (e.g. Swanson, Smalheiser, & Bookstein, 2001 ; Smalheiser & Swanson, 1994 , 1996a , 1996b , 1998 ). It is noteworthy that late in his career, Don proposed a link between atrial fibrillation and running ( Swanson, 2006 ). Exercise is known to be a risk factor for atrial fibrillation, and he proposed that this may be mediated by gastroesophageal reflux, which in turn may be alleviated by taking proton pump

“Won’t Somebody Think of the Children?” Examining COPPA Compliance at Scale

Abstract

We present a scalable dynamic analysis framework that allows for the automatic evaluation of the privacy behaviors of Android apps. We use our system to analyze mobile apps’ compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), one of the few stringent privacy laws in the U.S. Based on our automated analysis of 5,855 of the most popular free children’s apps, we found that a majority are potentially in violation of COPPA, mainly due to their use of thirdparty SDKs. While many of these SDKs offer configuration options to respect COPPA by disabling tracking and behavioral advertising, our data suggest that a majority of apps either do not make use of these options or incorrectly propagate them across mediation SDKs. Worse, we observed that 19% of children’s apps collect identifiers or other personally identifiable information (PII) via SDKs whose terms of service outright prohibit their use in child-directed apps. Finally, we show that efforts by Google to limit tracking through the use of a resettable advertising ID have had little success: of the 3,454 apps that share the resettable ID with advertisers, 66% transmit other, non-resettable, persistent identifiers as well, negating any intended privacy-preserving properties of the advertising ID.
