Military Culture A Paradigm Shift?

By: Karen O. Dunivin, Lieutenant Colonel, USAF

In this study, Lt Col Karen O. Dunivin, USAF, examines social change in American military culture and explores the current struggle between the military’s traditional and exclusionary combat, masculine-warrior (CMW) paradigm or belief system and the contradictory evolving model of military culture characterized by egalitarianism and inclusiveness. It is a contest between old thinking and new thinking. The author uses two recent and ongoing cases to illustrate the divergence between paradigm and model: women in combat and homosexuals in the military....

Black Hats and White Hats : The Effect of Organizational Culture and Institutional Identity on the Twenty-third Air Force

By: Lt Col Ioannis Koskinas, USAF

The basic hypothesis explored in this paper is that organizational culture and institutional agendas significantly affected the rise and fall of the Twenty-third Air Force. The significance of this research effort is clear considering the 1 October 2003 merger of Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) and AFSOF under the aegis of the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC). In light of recent events, this study’s ultimate goal is to provide a preview of how culture may affect AFSOC’s endeavors to strengthen CSAR capabilities. By studying the past, this paper looks for glimpses into the future....

Being Happy : The 10 Most Successful Strategies, Volume 1

By: Martin Nagle

If you take a look at the world we live in, most people have a completely backwards approach to pursuing happiness. We’re generally raised with the idea: “If you work hard at something, you’ll be successful, and then you can be happy”. But when you think like that, you’ll notice that as soon as you reach a goal, another one will take it’s place. And then another. Like the horizon, our goals keep shifting and moving just out of reach. And with that, our happiness. Our brain actually works the other way around: By cultivating happiness, you’ll be more creative, feel more connected, and be more productive. So by first focusing on what makes us happy, we become much better at everything we do!...

"... And be aware of your conditioning and society's effect on your thinking. Try giving yourself some unconditional self-acceptance, give yourself a break from the inner critic by, paradoxically, not struggling with anything. We put so much pressure on ourselves to be some notion of a perfect person that we are never actually able to be ourselves and enjoy our life. And remember – it's not a rehearsal – this is the real thing. Each moment is a new choice to love it or resent it."...

Femme Fatale : An Examination of the Role of Women in Combat and the Policy Implications for Future American Military Operations

By: Kristal L. M. Alfonso

This paper reviews four case studies that demonstrate the variety of ways women have participated in modern armed conflict and explores whether current US laws and policies excluding women from combat remain valid or need to be amended. Each case study examines three principal facets of female participation in combat: context, motivations and inspirations, and the actual contributions made by these women in combat operations....

Agile Combat Support Doctrine and Logistics Officer Training : Do We Need an Integrated Logistics School for the Expeditionary Air and Space Force?

By: J. Reggie Hall

Lt. Col. J. Reggie Hall’s Agile Combat Support Doctrine and Logistics Officer Training: Do We Need an Integrated Logistics School for the Expeditionary Air and Space Force? examines the evolution of USAF logistics doctrine, the linkage between doctrine, strategy, tactics, and training programs, and the corresponding application of logistics employment and sustainment functions in a deployed environment. In doing so, he analyzes the USAF’s diverse logistics officer training programs to determine if there is a deficiency in interdisciplinary logistics employment and sustainment training. He ascertains whether or not that training shortfall reveals a gap between USAF logistics doctrine and expeditionary air and space force combat strategy. His study also investigates the USAF transition to the air and space expeditionary force (AEF) operational employment concept as the force projection mechanism for the expeditionary air and space force and the reliance on ACS as the primary enabler to identify specific areas here the absence of integrated logistics training impacts or potentially degrades mission success....

Winning the Retention Wars : The Air Force, Women Officers, and the Need for Transformation

By: Laura A. H. DiSilverio

Analysis of the percentage of men and women by commissioned years of service in the Air Force indicates that women separate prior to retirement more frequently than men. Having determined that women separate from the Air Force prior to retirement eligibility more often than men, Lt Col Laura DiSilverio wanted to find out why. The first chapter demonstrates why the Air Force needs women. It makes the demographic case and presents research results showing the value of diversity in general and the value of women leaders in particular. The second chapter presents the survey results, analyzes why women separate from the Air Force, and lists the types of programs that might retain them. The final chapter looks at the feasibility of implementing some programs that might help the Air Force retain more of its talented members....

Women and Military Service : A History, Analysis, and Overview of Key Issues

By: Margaret C. Devilbiss

Women have served in and with the United States armed forces since the founding of our nation; yet it has only been since the 1970s that issues concerning women in the military have been seriously and systematically pursued by both scholars and military planners. This volume is an effort to identify and examine key events, questions, and policies pertaining to women in the United States armed forces. To do this, a multidisciplinary analytical strategy that incorporates the methodology and conceptual tools of history, social science, organizational theory, policy analysis, and future studies was adopted....

Military Chaplains as Peace Builders : Embracing Indigenous Religions in Stability Operations

By: William Sean Lee; Christopher J. Burke; Zonna M. Crayne

Religion and culture in general have been long neglected by planners, policy makers, and diplomats. Our experience in Phase IV, or the constructive phase, of Operation Iraqi Freedom has clearly exposed this inattention as a serious flaw in bringing peaceful development to Iraq. These authors suggest that military chaplains can be a part of a better solution. It is not a case of trying to proselyte; it is rather one of engaging local religious leaders to facilitate the stabilization process....

The Voices of Eden

By: Albert J. Schütz

Hawaiian history has been studied and described from many different points of view—cultural, archaeological, geographical, and botanical, among others. But very little has been written about Hawai'i's postcontact linguistic history: how outsiders first became aware of the Hawaiian language, how they and the Hawaiians were able to understand each other, and later, how they tried to record and analyze Hawaiian vocabulary and grammar. Our first records of European contact with the Hawaiian language are in the journals from Captain James Cook's third voyage, in which he and some of his crew recorded their efforts to communicate with this latest (and for Cook, the last) branch of the Polynesian peoples encountered on their exploration of the Pacific. Luckily for those of us interested in language, we had our counterparts over two centuries ago: some people who wrote down just a few words of Hawaiian, and others who were curious enough to set about gathering much longer lists of words. These reports vary in quality as well as in scope, often reflecting the native languages, training, and attitudes of those who collected them. None of the...

Choosing a Vocation : From the Father of Vocational Guidance: From the father of Vocational Guidance

By: Frank Parsons; Steve Shane Supple, Compiler

Frank Parsons has been called the Father of Vocational Guidance. As the founder of Vocational Psychology, he was interested in a lot more than helping individuals find work they will love. He also saw Vocational guidance as an instrument for positive social change. He believed that it had the power to help the less fortunate; the poor, the young, woman or immigrants and many other groups to find meaningful, productive & profitable work. He believed that social justice wasn’t possible without giving people a clear way to access their own human potential. A just society had to take into account the aptitude, abilities & aspirations of the individual. In fact, he believed that many of the problems that can inflict individuals & society can be avoided if people had a sense of who they are, what they want to do and know how to apply those things to a career that they will love. Frank Parsons’ vision & empathy translated into methods which are still relevant to the needs of people today. If you don’t know what your vocation is, then this book was written with you in mind. Parsons, like myself, struggled at times to find the vocation h...

Understanding Islam and Its Impact on Latin America

By: Curtis C. Connell

The initial question of this study concerns the debate between those who believe in a general Islamic threat, as defined most eloquently by Samuel P. Huntington in The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order, and others who see a small band of religious fanatics who have hijacked Islam from the moderate majority. This question about the source of terrorism has importance to the major Islamic nations as it does for Latin American countries, where Muslims are a largely undistinguishable minority....

Travancore State Manual

By: V Nagam Iyya; VED from Victoria Institutions, Editor

One very striking point in the book is the usage of ‘honourable company’ with regard to the East India Company. This adjective of ‘honourable’ is a necessary item in the feudal vernaculars of the Indian peninsula. Without this adjective, (mentioned or unmentioned), words and attributes can go down. However, there is this issue. The same word can have severely differing meanings when seen from English and from Indian peninsular vernaculars perspectives. In English the sense of ‘an honourable man’ is that of a person who is honest, has rectitude, wouldn’t cheat, would keep his words, would be fair in dealings etc. However, the vernacular sense is none of these. Here it is a forcible imposition meaning that the entity has to be ‘respected’....

Under command of His Highness the Maha Rajah, the preparation of the State Manual of Travancore was decided upon some time ago, and I was appointed to it with the simple instruction that the book was to be after the model of the District Manuals of Madras. This instruction I have faithfully carried out and I am happy to report now that the book is completed and issued in three large volumes. Although I have allowed myself some latitude in forming my own conception of the design and scope of the work and devoted my best attention and energies to their exposition and elucidation, I still feel I might have done better if I had been left to myself, to work at it leisurely, spending “a laborious day upon each page,’’ undisturbed by limitations of time and space...

An Introduction to the Financial Statement Analysis

By: Alex Sakevych; Patrick Kobyletskii

'An Introduction to the Financial Statement Analysis' is a brief guide to the financial statement analysis performance, including general information on the essence and methods of the financial analysis, key financial ratios calculation and interpretation. Finstanon is a fast solution for online financial analysis and interpretation. It saves time for professionals in financial analysis same as for newcomers. https://www.finstanon.com...

Aiming to detect changes in the company’s development trends in order to make more successful economic decisions, the financial statement analysis (also referred as the financial analysis of enterprise) is the process of analyzing and reviewing firm’s balance sheet (statement of financial position), income statement (profit and loss report) and other statements. It allows to estimate the company’s overall performance by calculating and comparing a complex of indicators, building the trend lines and making conclusions on the business health and sustainability. The motivation for applying the financial statement analysis to the annual report of a company is different for each group of users. Creditors are normally interested in estimating the creditworthiness of borrowers, investors want to measure the revenue their potential investments can bring, and managers are willing to have the most precise information on the financial position and performance of their companies....

Native Hawaiian Data Book

By: Hawaii Board of Trustees

On behalf of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs Board of Trustees, it is my pleasure to present the 2006 edition of the “Native Hawaiian Data Book”, a comprehensive statistical profile of the current status of the Native Hawaiian community. This data is gathered and compiled to assist community organizations to develop and strengthen service programs and community action projects to effectively meet the needs of Native Hawaiians. Data and information are key components in protecting and perpetuating the health and well-being of Native Hawaiians and ensuring the Native Hawaiian culture thrives for generations to come as the foundation of the emerging Native Hawaiian nation. The information in this 2006 edition of the “Native Hawaiian Data Book” was gathered from sources including: The Kamehameha Schools, Policy Analysis and System Evaluation (PASE); the State of Hawaii Departments of Health, Public Safety, Hawaiian Home Lands, Human Services, Business, Economic Development and Tourism; the University of Hawai and the United States Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census. This 2006 edition also includes a resource list for health,...

Within the last decade, the U.S. Census Bureau has continued to take great strides to ensure adequate representation of Native Hawaiian issues among their various data products. For the first time in history, individuals could select more than one race for Census 2000. This meant more accurate counts for Native Hawaiians, who could now be separated from the category, “Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander” (NHOPI) by being counted as Native Hawaiian alone or in combination with other races. According to the U.S. Census 2000 data, there are approximately 401,162 Native Hawaiians in Hawaii and on the continent. In the State of Hawaii alone, there are over 239,655 Native Hawaiians, representing 60% of the total population of Native Hawaiians in the United States. Population forecasts suggest that while the Native Hawaiian population continues to steadily increase, the population of Native Hawaiians in Hawaii is slowly decreasing due to the increasing cost of living and limited economic opportunities. Along with the U.S. Census Bureau, the State of Hawaii Department of Health also plays a crucial role in measuring the vital stati...

In them, you‘ll find all the backgrounds, foregrounds, premises, conclusions, and surprises that make up the best and most valuable books....

In the Bible, God‘s first gift to man isn‘t a lesson about how to make a fire or fashion a needle, a knife, or a spear. He first blesses him with language. Even before He takes Adam‘s rib to make Eve, He tells Adam to name every living creature. Adam immediately understands God‘s words and enunciates his own....

1. Did Water Monkeys Swim before We Spoke?-From whence cometh language, the InfoTech that lets us dominate our planet? We listen. We easily hallucinate word boundaries. Spaces, such as you see in writing, are absent from speech. Yet somehow we find it easy to make sense of speech. -- 2. The Gift of Memory-For millennia, mnemonics reigned over commerce, news, entertainment, and the perpetuation and refinement of crafts. -- 3. From Whence Cometh Indo-European Tongues?-Did a freshwater lake community flee a saltwater surge that filled the Black Sea and scatter its language west toward the Atlantic, southeast toward India, and northeast toward the Pacific? -- 4. Scripting Symbols of Shape-Scripting symbolic images lets man communicate over space and time. Balance of power shifts from tribal chiefs to city-state warrior-kings and priests. -- 5. Symbols of Sound Demand Analysis-The alphabet makes the pen mightier than the sword, generating the powers of knowledge needed to create and govern empires. -- 6. China‘s InfoTech Siblings-For centuries, the Chinese keep to themselves ?the wasps’ secret? and then develop printing blocks—the precur...
