Die Vermessung des Datenuniversums: Datenintegration Mithilfe Des Statistikstandards Sdmx

by Reinhold Stahl Patricia Staab

Anschaulich und locker geschrieben, bietet dieses Buch eine verst#65533;ndliche Einf#65533;hrung in die Organisation und Integration moderner Datenwelten und erl#65533;utert den Beitrag des in der Statistik g#65533;ngigen ISO-Standards SDMX. Es ist somit ein Muss f#65533;r Datenexperten und solche, die es noch werden wollen. Heutzutage wird der berufliche und private Alltag immer mehr durch explosiv wachsende Datenwelten bestimmt. Das Datenwachstum wird durch Suchmaschinen und soziale Netzwerke, aber auch neue technische M#65533;glichkeiten wie Big Data befeuert. Es birgt eine gro#65533;e Chance; aber ganz gleich, ob die Blockchain-Revolution vorangetrieben werden soll oder Smartphones noch smarter gemacht werden sollen, der Erfolg steht und f#65533;llt mit der Frage, wie gut es gelingt, die ben#65533;tigten Daten zu integrieren - sie zu sammeln, zu verkn#65533;pfen und auszuwerten. Grundlegend dabei ist die Einf#65533;hrung eines #65533;bergreifenden Ordnungssystems in Verbindung mit einer Standardisierung der Datenstruktur. Die Autoren zeigen anhand von Beispielen aus dem Alltag, wie die Konzepte der Statistik die Basis f#65533;r eine universelle und standardisierte Bereitstellung von beliebigen Informationen bieten. Sie stellen den internationalen Statistik-Standard SDMX (Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange) vor und zeigen, welche tiefgreifenden Ver#65533;nderungen durch die Einf#65533;hrung dieses Standards und des damit verbundenen Ordnungssystems f#65533;r die internationale Statistik-Community m#65533;glich waren.

Like Everyone Else but Different: The Paradoxical Success of Canadian Jews (Carleton Library Series #245)

by Morton Weinfeld

Liberal democratic societies with diverse populations generally offer minorities two usually contradictory objectives: the first is equal integration and participation; the second is an opportunity, within limits, to retain their culture. Yet Canadian Jews are successfully integrated into all domains of Canadian life, while at the same time they also seem able to retain their distinct identities by blending traditional religious values and rituals with contemporary cultural options. Like Everyone Else but Different illustrates how Canadian Jews have created a space within Canada’s multicultural environment that paradoxically overcomes the potential dangers of assimilation and diversity. At the same time, this comprehensive and data-driven study documents and interprets new trends and challenges including rising rates of intermarriage, newer progressive religious options, finding equal space for women and LGBTQ Jews, tensions between non-Orthodox and Orthodox Jews, and new forms of real and perceived anti-Semitism often related to Israel or Zionism, on campus and elsewhere. The striking feature of the Canadian Jewish community is its diversity. While this diversity can lead to cases of internal conflict, it also offers opportunities for adaptation and survival. Seventeen years after its first publication, this new edition of Like Everyone Else but Different provides definitive updates that blend research studies, survey and census data, newspaper accounts and articles, and the author’s personal observations and experiences to provide an informative, provocative, and fascinating account of Jewish life and multiculturalism in contemporary Canada.

Report on Social Security for Canada: New Edition (Carleton Library Series #244)

by Leonard Marsh Allan Moscovitch

Report on Social Security for Canada, written in wartime, presented to Canadians a picture of a better life in the postwar world. It outlined what governments could do to ensure that all citizens could afford the food, clothing, and shelter necessary to participate fully in their community. Authored by Leonard Marsh for the wartime Federal Advisory Committee on Reconstruction, the report was the subject of enormous attention when it was presented to the House of Commons in March 1943. Drawing on the work of his mentor, William Beveridge, and of John Maynard Keynes, Marsh primarily recommended an employment program meant to ensure lower unemployment and higher incomes. His report also discussed family allowances to make certain that no child would go without, health care insurance, temporary assistance in case of illness, a pension plan, and various other social benefits related to maternity, disability, loss of employment, and death. Today Report on Social Security for Canada is seen as a foundational text for the Canadian social security system. In this edition Allan Moscovitch provides the historical context, an outline of Marsh’s accomplishments, and suggestions for how to enhance the welfare state and respond to the social needs of Canadians in the twenty-first century.

Just Watch Us: RCMP Surveillance of the Women’s Liberation Movement in Cold War Canada

by Steve Hewitt Christabelle Sethna

From the late 1960s to the mid-1980s, in the midst of the Cold War and second-wave feminism, the RCMP security service – prompted by fears of left-wing and communist subversion – monitored and infiltrated the women’s liberation movement in Canada and Quebec. Just Watch Us investigates why and how this movement was targeted, weighing carefully the presumed threat its left-wing ties presented to the Canadian government against the defiant challenge its campaign for gender equality posed to Canadian society. Based on a close reading of thousands of pages of RCMP documents declassified under Canada’s Access to Information Act and the corresponding Privacy Act, Just Watch Us demonstrates that the security service’s longstanding anti-Communist focus distorted its threat assessment of feminist organizing. Combining gender analysis and critical approaches to state surveillance, Christabelle Sethna and Steve Hewitt consider the machinations of the RCMP, including its bureaucratic evolution, intelligence-gathering operations, and impact, as well as the evolution of the women’s liberation movement from its broad transnational influences to its elusive quest for unity among women across lines of ideology and identity. Significantly, the authors also grapple with the historiographical, methodological, and ethical difficulties of working with declassified security documents and sensitive information. A sharp-eyed inquiry into spy policies and tactics in Cold War Canada, Just Watch Us speaks to the serious political implications of state surveillance for social justice activism in liberal democracies.

Inside Politics

by L. Ian MacDonald

If journalism is the first draft of history, it’s equally important to see how the work stands the test of time. If the writing isn’t prescient and perspicacious, it doesn’t meet that test. This collection of columns and articles by L. Ian MacDonald – a sequel to Politics, People & Potpourri – meets that test. Much has happened in the politics of Canada and Quebec, as well as to the leaders who have defined and shaped the first two decades of the twenty-first century, since the first collection was published in 2009. The successful election campaigns of Harper and Trudeau form the political bookends of the present decade in Canada and the opening chapters of the book. Between these governments, there are the events, personalities, and issues that have shaped the political narrative and policy debate, from fiscal frameworks to clean energy and pipelines, from the Senate expense scandal and democratic reform to national security at home and the mission against ISIS abroad. In his columns, and longer pieces from Policy Options and Policy magazines, MacDonald provides clear-minded commentary on political issues salient to all Canadians – including the election of Donald Trump in the United States. He also profiles a diverse group of political figures, and writes moving tributes to departed, nationally respected figures such as Jean Béliveau, Jim Flaherty, Jack Layton, and Tom Van Dusen. This intelligent and entertaining collection presents MacDonald at his best, and offers a captivating view of Canadian politics and life.

Assessing Intellectual Property Compliance in Contemporary China: The World Trade Organisation And Trade-related Intellectual Property Rights (Palgrave Series In Asia And Pacific Studies)

by Kristie Thomas

Since its accession to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in December 2001, China has been committed to full compliance with the Trade-Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) Agreement. This text considers the development of intellectual property in China, and offers an interdisciplinary analysis of China's compliance with the TRIPS Agreement using theories originating in international relations and law. It notes that despite significant efforts to amend China's substantive IP laws to prepare for WTO accession and sweeping changes to domestic legislation, a significant gap existed between the laws on paper and as enforced in practice, and that infringements to the agreement are still prevalent. The book examines how compliance with international rules can be promoted and encouraged in a specific jurisdiction. Making a case for a wider, more interdisciplinary and global outlook, it contends that compliance needs to align with the national interests of relevant countries and jurisdictions, as governments' economic interests support the greater enforcement of the IP laws.
