Tese de doutoramento em Psicologia (ramo de conhecimento em Psicologia Vocacional); A gestão pessoal da carreira é um processo contínuo e regular, no qual a exploração vocacional, a definição de objectivos, o delineamento e a implementação de planos de acção, e a monitorização e obtenção de feedback se constituem como tarefas-chave para a resolução de problemas e a tomada de decisões relativas à carreira (Pinto & Taveira, 2010; Taveira, 2009). Tendo em consideração o conjunto de transformações que têm vindo a registar-se no mundo político, económico, e social, e as suas repercussões nas teorias e conceitos de carreira, os modelos de gestão pessoal da carreira tornaram-se indispensáveis no apoio ao desenvolvimento de trajectórias pessoais e profissionais saudáveis. Por conseguinte, o presente trabalho visa apresentar e discutir os resultados da avaliação do programa “Seminário de Gestão Pessoal da Carreira”, na sua versão B, - um modelo de intervenção psicológica especializado, implementado no Serviço de Psicologia, da Escola de Psicologia da Universidade do Minho, junto de estudantes de doutoramento e de bolseiros de investigação científica (GPC-B; Taveira, Araújo, Loureiro...

The design, construction, and performance of a cross-coil double-resonance probe for solid-state NMR experiments on lossy biological samples at high magnetic fields are described. The outer coil is a Modified Alderman-Grant Coil (MAGC) tuned to the 1H frequency. The inner coil consists of a multi-turn solenoid coil that produces a B1 field orthogonal to that of the outer coil. This results in a compact nested cross-coil pair with the inner solenoid coil tuned to the low frequency detection channel. This design has several advantages over multiple-tuned solenoid coil probes, since RF heating from the 1H channel is substantially reduced, it can be tuned for samples with a wide range of dielectric constants, and the simplified circuit design and high inductance inner coil provides excellent sensitivity. The utility of this probe is demonstrated on two electrically lossy samples of membrane proteins in phospholipid bilayers (bicelles) that are particularly difficult for conventional NMR probes. The 72-residue polypeptide embedding the transmembrane helices 3 and 4 of the Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) (residues 194 – 241) requires a high salt concentration in order to be successfully reconstituted in phospholipid bicelles. A second application is to paramagnetic relaxation enhancement applied to the membrane-bound form of Pf1 coat protein in phospholipid bicelles where the resistance to sample heating enables high duty cycle solid-state NMR experiments to be performed.

Many countries are using innovation funds in the agricultural sector to support innovators and their links to public institutions, private entrepreneurs, and other actors, such as groups of rural producers. These funds create platforms for innovative activity by providing incentives for quality and collaboration. This report synthesizes experience with the two main innovation funds that the World Bank has used to fund agricultural innovation, competitive research grants and matching grants, and offers lessons and guidelines for designing and implementing them. Although the report draws extensively on experience with World Bank investments, the lessons are relevant in other contexts. The practical aspects of designing and implementing successful grant schemes are emphasized throughout.

Matching grants are one of the most common policy instruments used by developing country governments to try to foster technological upgrading, innovation, exports, use of business development services and other activities leading to firm growth. However, since they involve subsidizing firms, the risk is that they could crowd out private investment, subsidizing activities that firms were planning to undertake anyway, or lead to pure private gains, rather than generating the public gains that justify government intervention. As a result, rigorous evaluation of the effects of such programs is important. The authors attempted to implement randomized experiments to evaluate the impact of seven matching grant programs offered in six African countries, but in each case were unable to complete an experimental evaluation. One critique of randomized experiments is publication bias, whereby only those experiments with "interesting" results get published. The hope is to mitigate this bias by learning from the experiments that never happened. This paper describes the three main proximate reasons for lack of implementation: continued project delays...

In the new information age in the globalized and interconnected world, metropolitan areas hold the key to the future prosperity and growth of nations. This paper takes a closer look at grant-financing regimes faced by metropolitan areas and their role in facilitating or hindering improvements in economic and social outcomes of residents of metropolitan areas. A review of 42 large metropolitan areas worldwide shows that, with a few notable exceptions, metropolitan areas in general are hamstrung from playing their potential role in economic advancement. Metro areas have large economic bases and therefore little a priori needs for grant financing, yet they have strong dependence on central transfers. This is because of the highly constrained fiscal autonomy given to these areas, especially in developing countries, with the singular exception of metro areas in China. Such a strong reliance on transfers undermines local autonomy and local accountability. General purpose transfers are formula based , transparent and predictable yet they discriminate against metropolitan areas as they utilize a one size fit all (common formula) for all local governments -- large or small. Such formula typically incorporate equal per jurisdiction component that discriminates against large metropolitan areas. Compactness is rarely rewarded and the greater needs of metro areas for transportation...

Matching grants are one of the most common types of private sector development programs used in developing countries. But government subsidies to private firms can be controversial. A key question is that of additionality: do these programs get firms to undertake innovative activities that they would not otherwise do, or merely subsidize activities that would take place anyway? Randomized controlled trials can provide the counterfactual needed to answer this question, but efforts to experiment with matching grant programs have often failed. This paper uses a randomized controlled trial of a matching grant program for firms in the Republic of Yemen to demonstrate the feasibility of conducting experiments with well-designed programs, and to measure the additionality impact. In the first year, the matching grant is found to have led to more product innovation, firms upgrading their accounting systems, marketing more, making more capital investments, and being more likely to report their sales grew.

Namibia's initiative of a basic income grant (BIG) as an unconditionally granted monthly allowance to every citizen of the country - independent of age, gender, ethnic affiliation or private possessions - has attracted worldwide attention. A pilot project was initiated in 2008 in the village of Otjivero east of Namibias capital Windhoek which has shown the positive effects of BIG as a means of poverty reduction and economic development. However, there are heated discussions about the future of BIG within and outside the country. This research focuses on the cultural factors in the process. It argues that the appropriation and handling of a basic income grant is strongly influenced by different concepts of what "a good life" is. The results of the anthropological research show that among the Damara population of Otjivero a large part of BIG is invested into the highly valued social exchange system, thus being sustainable in a very culture specific way.

Water availability to plants growing in coarse-textured soils during a drying cycle relies on the declining abilities of the soil to release water (differential water capacity) and to deliver it to the plant (unsaturated hydraulic conductivity) under varying evaporative demand. In this context, the availability of water can be quantified using the concept of the integral water capacity, IWC, in which the differential water capacity is weighted by means of a restrictive hydraulic function before integrating. We argue here that the diffusivity is an appropriate component of the restrictive hydraulic function, which leads to the employment of the so-called 'matric flux potential' (which we propose to re-name as the 'matric flux transform'). As the starting point to apply the diffusivity function, we choose the inflection point of the water-retention curve drawn on semi-log paper, which, for the Groenevelt-Grant equation, occurs at a matric head, h, of precisely k0 metres. An illustrative example of the procedures is provided for a coarse-textured soil, which reveals that the restrictive function may not be sufficiently restrictive for all cases. We therefore apply an additional weighting coefficient to account for varying sensitivity of different plants to hydraulic restrictions.; C. D. Grant and P. H. Groenevelt

De la capacité d’une société à repenser ses liens sociaux, dépend son développement à la fois politique, social et économique. L’État peut, pour contribuer de manière déterminante à la production de sens, développer des outils, entre autres des mécanismes de redistribution, susceptibles d’assurer la solidarité et la cohésion sociale. L’enjeu est d’importance pour certains pays comme la Namibie, dont l'histoire est marquée par le colonialisme et l'apartheid ─desquels il s'est libéré il y a à peine plus de vingt ans─ et qui sont construits sur une logique de séparation inégalitaire des droits et des ressources. À partir de l'exemple du Basic Income Grant (BIG), projet-pilote de revenu citoyen garanti mis en place dans un village de la Namibie entre 2007 et 2009, ce mémoire propose d'explorer l'apport du concept d'empowerment dans ce projet en tant qu'outil de déconstruction de ces structures inégalitaires. Après avoir exposé différentes conceptions des notions de pauvreté, de richesse et de développement, nous aborderons la question du revenu citoyen garanti et de la place qu'il peut prendre dans différents systèmes de protection sociale. Puis, nous tenterons de mieux cerner le concept d'empowerment pour finalement arriver à répondre à notre principal questionnement: le projet BIG permet-il effectivement l'émancipation ou au contraire...

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Policy Question Should the federal government modify the human resources requirement in the School Improvement Grant models to address the specific challenges facing rural high schools? Background The Obama Administration is pressuring Congress to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), legislation that significantly increased federal funding and accountability requirements for elementary and secondary education. As part of the effort to help schools meet accountability standards, Congress authorized School Improvement Grants (SIG) that provide funds to improve low-performing Title I schools. In order to be eligible to receive funds, schools must implement one of four school intervention models that are designed to induce radical and transformative change in the school. This report focuses on two models: the Turnaround and Transformation models. As part of these models, the Department of Education requires the mandatory replacement of the principal and, in the Turnaround model, 50% of the current staff as well. President Obama outlined a new goal for his proposal on ESEA reauthorization: every student should graduate from high school ready for college and career. This goal is ambitious considering high school students have made no progress on the National Assessment for Educational Progress over the last few decades while elementary and middle school students have made modest improvements. These results align with a common perception that high schools have historically been the most difficult schools to improve and are the most “impervious to change.” Rural high schools face additional challenges recruiting and retaining high-quality teachers and administrators due to relatively lower pay...

Annual Report; When I hear this widely circulated quote by Margaret Mead, I can???t help but think of our small state of Delaware and how our close partnerships and working relationships mean that we can maximize our timely response to the environmental challenges of today. Here, in our annual report, we provide you with a snapshot of the work that we conduct as we look at the health of coastal ecosystems, sustainable coastal development, a safe and sustainable seafood supply and hazard resilient coastal communities. And while these four focus areas drive our research, education and outreach, we ensure that addressing issues of climate and environmental literacy are woven through all that we do. From Wilmington to Fenwick Island, the Delaware Sea Grant College Program is working with communities throughout the state to provide them with the data, tools and training needed to maintain vibrant economies and sustainable ecosystems. This year, we embark on a new strategic plan for 2014-2017, developed in large part through the input of our coastal stakeholders and in alignment with the National Sea Grant Strategic Plan. In it, we renew our commitment to providing sound scientific information and policy analysis on issues related to our coast and coastal economics and to translating that science into applications that have a positive impact on our fellow citizens. It is the goal of Delaware Sea Grant that society benefits from the sea???today and in the future. It is our hope that through reading this report and by learning more from our website???www.deseagrant.org???you are inspired to join us pursuing that endeavor.; Delaware Sea Grant College Program

Annual Report; When Hurricane Sandy tracked toward Delaware, the storm threatened residents, infrastructure, and economic interests statewide. The damage in Delaware, while not as severe as that experienced further north, highlighted the delicate balance between people and the environment in our coastal region. The Delaware Sea Grant College Program works to improve understanding of these interconnections through scientific research, education, and outreach. We are helping the state prepare for natural hazards, consider future impacts of climate change, and develop smart plans for growth. A recent Sea Grant study showed that economic activity along Delaware???s ocean coastline generates nearly $7 billion annually and represents one-tenth of the state???s total employment. The jobs are largely reliant on resilient communities, clean beaches, and healthy ecosystems that help attract visitors and year-round residents alike. Delaware Sea Grant promotes the wise use, conservation, and management of marine and coastal resources while also supporting economic growth. Part of a national network of 33 university-based programs, our researchers and outreach specialists offer sound scientific information on issues impacting our state. This report gives an update on how we are using science to serve Delaware???s coast and improve the quality of life in our state. We invite you to visit our website???www.deseagrant.org???to learn more.; Delaware Sea Grant College Program

The Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) contracted with the University of Delaware’s Education Research and Development Center (R & D Center) to help evaluate the Delaware State Improvement Grant (DelaSIG). As part of the reporting of Delaware’s State Improvement Grant (DelaSIG), the Delaware Education Research and Development Center (R & D Center) completed a study on the classroom instructional activities of teachers who attended either one or both Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) professional development program(s) designed to help focus teacher instruction of struggling readers in Grades 4 through 12, Success for Secondary Struggling Readers (SSSR) Institute I or Implementing Multiple Practices for Activating Comprehension in Teaching (IMPACT) Reading training, also known as SSSR Institute II. This strand of the evaluation plan, the classroom observations at the 4-12 grade levels, was completed first in 2006 and again in 2007. Here, results from this year’s classroom observations provide a detailed look at the instruction and instructional activities within the randomly selected classrooms.
