...growth of domestic cargo transported as belly cargo on domestic airlines. Air cargo is chosen over the more dominant sea cargo more and more as the types of cargo become more perishable and time or handling sensitive. Rising levels of disposable income for the general population means a growth in the request for those higher value items. To meet these needs the transit time for this type of cargo needs to be reviewed and reduced to lower the total cost to market. This reduction in the time to market will increase the competitiveness of the overall air cargo industry. Without this competitive advantage, many companies will continue to use sea cargo carriers as the tried and true product delivery avenue. India has experienced a boom in international and domestic trade in recent years. Several initiatives were put in place during the late 80’s and early 90’s, which first allowed Air Cargo to provide on-demand passenger service to try to boost tourism. The second policy specified that when a carrier either foreign or domestic achieved a specified level of safety and operational goals they could run services whether scheduled or not between any airports in India that had an available customs facility. In addition, they could set their own cargo rates. The six largest airports in India are Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru, Kolkata and Hyderabad with Chennai located on the Coromandel Coast, having the highest air cargo throughput. Chennai has a diverse industrial base with many......

...high-school education is ''obsolete.'' As Gates put it: ''When I compare our high schools to what I see when I'm traveling abroad, I am terrified for our work force of tomorrow. In math and science, our fourth graders are among the top students in the world. By eighth grade, they're in the middle of the pack. By 12th grade, U.S. students are scoring near the bottom of all industrialized nations. . . . The percentage of a population with a college degree is important, but so are sheer numbers. In 2001, India graduated almost a million more students from college than the United States did. China graduates twice as many students with bachelor's degrees as the U.S., and they have six times as many graduates majoring in engineering. In the international competition to have the biggest and best supply of knowledge workers, America is falling behind.'' We need to get going immediately. It takes 15 years to train a good engineer, because, ladies and gentlemen, this really is rocket science. So parents, throw away the Game Boy, turn off the television and get your kids to work. There is no sugar-coating this: in a flat world, every individual is going to have to run a little faster if he or she wants to advance his or her standard of living. When I was growing up, my parents used to say to me, ''Tom, finish your dinner -- people in China are starving.'' But after sailing to the edges of the flat world for a year, I am now telling my own daughters, ''Girls, finish your homework --......

(Email: a ABSTRACT This paper argues that research and publications in the area of methodology of Islamic economics is very significant for a meaningful development of the discipline. Although the discussion on methodology of Islamic economics in contemporary Islamic economics literature is rather limited, this paper reviews the works of selected scholars who have attempted to present works on ‘methodology’ and their approach to the process of theory building in Islamic economics. The paper then presents some implications of these views based on the position that methodology investigates the criteria, rationalizations, arguments and justifications used in theory appraisal as well as evaluating the reliability of theories, this paper concludes that greater resources, both human and financial, need to be channeled to developing uÎūl al-iqtiÎād, a fundamental, but vastly, neglected area of research in contemporary Islamic......

...belongingness. For the top management, motivation could be improved through achievement of self-actualization (Smit, 2006; Stimpson, 2010). Herzberg's Two-factor theory This Essay is a Student's Work This essay has been submitted by a student. This is not an example of the work written by our professional essay writers. EXAMPLES OF OUR WORK The two factor theory states that motivation is based on either the hygiene or the motivators. Poor hygiene leads to dissatisfaction of employees; therefore, a hygienic work environment is necessary. Motivators such as recognition, achievement and personal growth help in increasing the satisfaction of employees and improving their performance. Tesco is a reputed organization and is based on international standards; therefore, hygienic factors are there in the company so dissatisfaction is less likely, however, in order to improve the current performance, motivators such as personal growth will be needed and this can be done through initiation of self-directed teams, performance appraisals and challenging goals (Daniel and Gitman, 2008). Vroom's Expectancy theory According to this theory, the motivation of employee depends on his/her expectancy about being able to do a certain task and achieve the outcome desired. Availability of resources is of concern in order for the employee to perform the task. If the company does not have the adequate resources available then performance will be affected in achieving the desired outcome.......

...------------------------------------------------- Top of FormBottom of Form | Journal of International Business and Economics, Dec 2011 v11 i4 p142(5) An analysis on the long-term effects of rural labor migration in China based on the Markov chain method. Huang Ningyang; Charles Corcoran; Gong Meng. Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT 2011 International Academy of Business and Economics The migration of rural labor to non-agricultural sectors helps solve three agriculture issues in China: dated agrarian methods, an overpopulation of rural areas, and an excess of supply of farm labor. But a large population and fast economic development may impede the process. The proportion of rural labor is large and the labor force participation rate is high, while education levels are low. Further, the elasticity of employment is low, while economic growth is much faster than rural labor employment growth. Based on questionnaire data investigating rural labor markets, and utilizing the Markov Chain Method, a forecast is made of when the rural labor shift will stabilize, along with the three employment states' probabilities: (1) working and residing on the home farm, (2) leaving home but working near their hometown, and (3) leaving home and working far from their hometowns. It is projected that the rural labor shift will stabilize in 24 years. The probabilities of the three employment states mentioned above will be 5.9%, 45.4%, and 51.2%, respectively. These findings may contribute to policy......
