The report and its findings are informed by 52 interviews conducted with University of Missouri students, staff, faculty, and other community members. The authors also considered previous research on diversity, inclusion, campus racial climate, crisis response, and institutional leadership.
Grants of patents to residentsa 45, 52 Sources: The case-studies provided a very detailed picture of the gross features and nuances of self-reliance in particular industries. Table 14 summarizes the strong and weak points with respect to the self-reliance.
The prognosis here is that there is very little desire and ability to improve the industries technologically. In spite of their long histories, technological capability has remained low. In general, the capabilities are still in the operative stage. The same is true for coco chemicals.
Government research agencies have been engaged in coconut research for a long time, but they have concentrated on the agricultural side of the industry. The research that has been done on the processing aspects is not relevant to the needs of industry, or, if it is, it has simply been ignored.
In the case of the newer industries geothermal energy and semiconductorstechnological dependence is starkly apparent. The micro-indicators of interest in table 15 are the nationality of management, dependence on inputs and financing, and the importation of the hardware of production.
It is interesting to note that geothermal energy is the pride of the government science establishment. Its rapid development made an impact on the local energy scene. However, the role of Philippine science has been limited to the exploration aspects.
In fact, the local expertise that has been developed in this area is of world-class quality. Sadly, however, the actual installation of machinery and pipelines was carried out by foreign multinational companies.
Indeed, the Philippines is totally dependent on imported capital equipment for most of its industries. In all the case-studies, there is evidence of heavy technology imports. Even in an old industry like mining, the biggest mine in the Philippines relies on foreign managers for the supervision of the underground operations and the maintenance of the heavy equipment.
Most of the machinery is imported.
In the entire copper techno-system, only the furniture is of purely local origin. Similarly, all processes and technologies are licensed by foreign firms.
As Stewart points out,16 technology imports are addictive. In the Philippines, technology transfer is the standard way of initiating new enterprises because it appears to be the quickest and most convenient way of doing things.
Once established, technology imports tend to inhibit the growth of local initiatives in the same industry because of the latter's inability to compete in terms of quality and cost.
College Park, Md. – Today, the University of Maryland launched a brand-new multimedia news and information portal, UMD Right Now, which provides members of the media and the public with real-time information on the university and its extended community. UMD Right Now replaces Newsdesk, which previously served as the university’s news hub and central resource for members of the media. Because of students’ increased dependency on technology, unexpected events can cause improperly saved work to be lost. A sudden blackout due to a thunderstorm . Growing dependence on technology raises risks of malfunction Though technology has made our lives easier, it has become more of a headache than help when thinking about the breakdown risks. By.
Given the lack of technological capability to develop substitutes, a local vested interest grows up around such enterprises, which end up dominating the market and assuming a prominent role in the national economy.
At this stage, the continuous importation of technology becomes difficult to manage and control. Technological dependence in the Philippines comes in many forms.The dependency on technology is a two edge sword.
As a person that is house bound for physical reasons it is easier than ever. I can work, shop and chat with friends all from the comfort of my seat. Over dependence on technology might be making us less intelligent. The cloud can put all your files at your fingertips, just so long as you have a printer.
It's easier to learn on paper. Sometimes a paper trail is the only way to find what you're looking for. Jun 07, · Technology, like food, is an essential part of daily life, and those suffering from disordered online behavior cannot give it up entirely and instead have to learn moderation and controlled use.
Heroin is a highly addictive drug, and its use is a serious problem in the United States. Recent studies suggest a shift from injecting heroin to snorting or smoking because of the increased purity and the misconception that these behaviors will not lead to dependency.
Perhaps the most damning piece of evidence, according to Brynjolfsson, is a chart that only an economist could love. In economics, productivity—the amount of economic value created for a given.
