The category “ strategy ” includes all those articles that deal with the issues of business strategy and sustainability. It is a matter of fact that research on strategy is mainly performed in the New World Countries: Chile, New Zealand, US, Australia and Argentina lead the way to understand the links between wine and sustainability in a strategic orientation. Research techniques employed are often qualitative and case study research is frequently performed. One of the reasons could be the necessity to explore the main drivers of pressure towards sustainability taking into account the motivations and opinions of different wineries’ stakeholders. In fact, according to Flint (2009), in order to conduct such exploratory research, an appropriate methodology such as grounded theory is necessary that has been used to reveal how social actors interpret and act within their environments. In other papers, the aim is to enlighten an entire sector at national or regional level and for this reason a multidisciplinary case study ap- proach is employed (Guthey and Whiteman 2009; Cederberg et al. 2009). The topics in- vestigated in this category are diverse, but two trends stand out: at a country level the analysis is carried out to understand the boundaries of emerging organic wine industry and the implications to promote place branding activities; at firm level the interest is for internal and external pressures towards sustainable and environmental practices.
introduced to different techniques and approaches to begin addressing their own alcohol misuse - strategies which the mentors themselves may have successfully employed.
Our combined analyses of OASys and TOP data also suggest that alcohol misuse outcomes could be improved by targeting support at those probationers experiencing more acute forms of social isolation (e.g. arising from a lack of close friends or associates) 6 . This could perhaps become a key area of focus for ex-service user/peer mentors working with ATR cases in the future in order to further improve alcohol misuse outcomes.
We conclude that sufficient unanswered questions remain to feed research for several generations to come. This exercise has some shortcomings as does every scientific study: only a limited number of consultees were contacted and only a fraction of them (<40%) responded. However, there was substantial overlap in the more than 650 contributions we received, and the themes of the most urgent subjects were easily identified. We found it much more difficult to select from the mass of good questions which might have been too case-specific to be included in a publication also intended for non-specialists. We decided to focus on a broader level, which makes it difficult to answer single questions with single projects. Nevertheless, many of the questions can be split or broken down into digestible parts and offer objectives for studies within a defined time frame. On the other hand, it may be argued that 86 questions are too many to represent the “key” issues, but the final number of questions reflects the breadth of the topic and the current debates within the field.
and Refugees) was mostly substantiating rather than instrumental or legitimising (see also Chap. 11 in this volume for a slightly different perspective on the BAMF’s role in the German case).
Interestingly, Boswell’s case studies suggest that we should study knowledge utilisation and policy-research structures at two different levels. On the one hand, there is the more generic level of national cultures of knowledge utilisation, with different traditions in the UK and Germany for example, that may explain the frequent incidence of certain forms of policy-research dialogues. On the other hand, the particular culture and practices in a specific domain and a specific institution may in reality turn out to be quite different from what one may expect on the basis of national cultures and traditions. For instance, whereas the specific British case revealed a great interest in policymaking based on knowledge and evidence, in reality research mostly served substantiating purposes rather than having a legitimising or instrumental role. Boswell’s exploration of these contextual factors further underlines the necessity of more conceptual and empirical work that connects knowledge utilisation to the issue of how research-policy relations are structured in the first place.
STATE PRioRiTy AREA: ENGAGEMENT
Student engagement means providing students with programs, course work and opportunities both in and out of the classroom that motivates them and keeps them in school. Research further shows that when students are healthy in mind and body, they are more engaged, miss less school, focus better in class, and are more likely to graduate. Different types of teaching methods can also keep more students engaged.
5. What does it cost and how long does it take?
Below are ranges for how much each phase of work may cost, along with the typical length of time to conduct the work.
In addition to the fees summarized below, it is critical for you to factor staff time into the cost of a branding project. You and your colleagues will be asked to participate in meetings and conversations with Mission Minded, to gather background information, to coordinate the participation of research study participants, and to give feedback to Mission Minded. While we will take the lead in driving your project forward and keeping it on track and on budget, you will be responsible for contributing time and ideas at various phases of the work. While it may be great fun to participate in this exciting work, it does take staff and volunteers away from their normal duties—even if your organization is lucky enough to have people already dedicated to communications.

To tap the full potential of biomonitoring data, it will be necessary to improve curation and access to the rich reference datasets that have already been generated. Due in part to specific institutional regulations, there is a lot of genetic reference material that is only available to researchers within certain institutions. Since molecular-based identifications are heavily dependent on the quality and completeness of the reference databases, this research field will collectively benefit from incentives to curate and upload reference sequences to publicly available databases. Ensuring that these datasets are available in a usable format to interested researchers across the globe represents a major challenge to the field, but one which must be met in order to address global changes in biodiversity and species distribution (Poisot et al., 2016, 2019; Desjardins-Proulx et al., 2019). The definition of the ontologies that will allow NGB data to be machine-read and automated, assuring quality control and the integration of metadata from biomonitoring and associated disciplines, has begun but requires large-scale adoption across fields to be useful.
Before investing you should thoroughly research the company. Also, you should try to verify information independently and not simply rely on the information provided by the company. If investing in a company’s business, investors should research that company’s market, its
competition, and business plan. If investing in a company that will manage your money or make investments with your money, you should research the background of the company and its management. For background research, the first step may be a simple search on google.com or bing.com to find any information about the company or its managers. You should contact the Utah Division of Securities to determine if the Division has any negative information on the company or its management. You may also search with other regulators, such as real estate or insurance. Greater due diligence may require looking for any court records for criminal or civil matters.
For these reasons, there is an urgent need to triage the most important fundamental and applied questions in the field of movement ecology for targeted research, particularly in the case of marine species for which technical advances in tagging have been profound. To this end, we assembled 40 leading experts in the field of bio-logging of marine megafauna to identify keyquestions. We illustrate how many of these questions not only apply to these taxa but also to terrestrial vertebrates and other animal groups including mobile invertebrates in both
but there is much left to explore. Only in the past decade, for example, has the genome of a photosynthetic plant been sequenced.
In the face of the great potential unlocked by metagenomics, an Interdisciplinary Research (IDR) team of scientists at the 2009 National Academies Keck Futures Initiative Conference on Synthetic Biology thought about how best to use the technique to explore the Earth’s biosphere to discover its novel functions. The team began by reviewing issues that researchers have with gene databases, which already contain a wealth of undiscovered genes.

ABSTRACT: Limited resources and increasing environmental concerns have prompted calls to identify the critical questions that most need to be answered to advance conservation, thereby providing an agenda for scientific research priorities. Cetaceans are often keystone indicator spe- cies but also high profile, charismatic flagship taxa that capture public and media attention as well as political interest. A dedicated workshop was held at the conference of the Society for Marine Mammalogy (December 2013, New Zealand) to identify where lack of data was hindering cetacean conservation and which questions need to be addressed most urgently. This paper sum- marizes 15 themes and component questions prioritized during the workshop. We hope this list will encourage cetacean conservation-orientated research and help agencies and policy makers to prioritize funding and future activities. This will ultimately remove some of the current obstacles to science-based cetacean conservation.

Operations management in not-for-proﬁt organizations
Terms such as competitive advantage, markets and business, which are used in this book, are usually associated with companies in the for-proﬁt sector. Yet operations management is also relevant to organizations whose purpose is not primarily to earn proﬁts. Managing the operations in an animal welfare charity, hospital, research organization or government department is essentially the same as in commercial organizations. Operations have to take the same decisions – how to produce products and services, invest in technology, contract out some of their activities, devise performance measures, and improve their operations performance and so on. However, the strategic objectives of not-for-proﬁt organizations may be more complex and involve a mixture of political, economic, social and environ- mental objectives. Because of this there may be a greater chance of operations decisions being made under conditions of conﬂicting objectives. So, for example, it is the operations staff in a children’s welfare department who have to face the conﬂict between the cost of providing extra social workers and the risk of a child not receiving adequate protection.
Conversely, radical changes in policies toward foreign business can occur in the most stable of the governments. Some of the African countries are among the unstable with seemingly unending civil wars, boundary disputes and oppressive military regimes. Like one of the region with the greatest number of questions concerning long-term stability is Hong Kong as since China has gained control, the official message is that nothing will change and thus everything is seemingly going smoothly but the political analysts say that it is too early to say how will the business climate change, if it will. If there is potential for profit and if given permission to operate within a country, MNCs can function under any type of government as
