Mohiuddin Ahmad Community Development Library (CDL)

INTRODUCTION
Background and context Community Development Library (CDL) has been working mainly in the fields of development information and communication since its inception in 1980. CDL was established with a mission to deliver development information to activists and organizations that are working in the broad areas of research, human development and right-based works. Among them are catalysts in different fields including academics, planners, development practitioners, cultural activists, political activists, human rights activists, peace activists, environmentalists, feminists, journalists, researchers, teachers, trade unionists and community leaders. The target audience is engaged in activities intending to change the quality of life of the people, particularly the disadvantaged groups of the society. Mission of CDL CDL believes that 'information' is the critical missing link between ignorance and enlightenment, between poverty and prosperity, between dehumanization and empowerment. The vulnerable people and the communities have little or no access to vital information, particularly information on availability of and access to resources. CDL feels that a wellplanned effort encompassing collection, processing and dissemination of information would help in attaining the required level of awareness in the society and, in turn, would accelerate the process of empowerment of the people by reducing knowledge gap. Knowledge based activities There are, however, debates on the relevance and efficacy of knowledge based activities and services. Is it tantamount to social work or somewhat different

from it? The overwhelming majority of the NGOs in Bangladesh are involved in social mobilization and rural development activities mostly providing…...

Cash Is Better Than Equity

...1163 경영학연구 제40권 제5호 2011년 10월(pp. 1163~1184) Is Cash better than Equity as Takeover Payment? - Learning from Korean Cases Seong-Ho Cho Professor, College of Business Administration Hongik University (shcho11@hongik.ac.kr) ……………………………………………………………………………… This paper examines the relationship between the abnormal stock returns upon announcement and the choice of takeover payment methods, say, cash or equity, for the Korean mergers and acquisitions during 1996-2008 in which for some period, say, 1996-2000, liquidity is very scarce and market is uncertain. We test two hypotheses; first, whether equity payments reduce bidders’ firm value; second, whether cash payments are more (or less) likely preferred by the target shareholders who are facing high uncertainty. Unlike US experience, we fail to find statistical evidence that equity offers reduce bidders’ firm value. Further, while the bidder shareholders gain on average wealth of 1.8% from the M&A transactions, whether they pay in cash or equity, they earn positive 0.1% or 3.5% gain, respectively. These results contradict to the conventional asymmetric information model where market valuation of bidder’s equity plays an important role for the determination of payment alternatives. While examining the wealth gains of target shareholders, we find statistical evidence that cash payments are preferred to equity payments. Further, if they are paid by cash (equity), they earn 6.2% (-5.1%) gain. We conclude that under the......

...Should music be censored? Censorship affects us in many different ways, it affects everything around us. For Instance, it affects the movie we watch, the music we listen. In one word it is restrictions on what people of art create and limits artists opportunity to fully express themselves. Of course, one of the way express your feelings and emotions is the music, which become controversial form of censorship.There have been many different arguments on the topic, however the question still remains as if it should be censored r it should not be censored. I think that music should be censored because it clashes with moral values, negative stereotypes and with generational value gaps. In all types of music artists are expressing their views, opinions and feeling in their songs about what they see and what they know. This is one of the great thing that you have freedom to express yourself. Nevertheless, music is censored because it changes moral expression, as outreach of wrong values as drugs and values, ideas, and beliefs for the worse. As people of different ages use music as a tool of self violence through music could lead to loosening of moral values. They believe that music pertaining profanity is one of the main factors for the problems that occur in our society. Such problems consist of an increase in violence and drug use amongst adolescents. An example was the incident that occurred at, where the media and others looked towards music as......

Better Than Store Bought

...Erica Scott Instructor Emily Stallings Communication Skills October 5, 2010 Better Than Store-bought I can relate to many things in Barbara Kingsolver’s book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle since I come from a small town where farming and knowing almost everyone around you is the norm. In chapter 13 Barbara talks about canning tomatoes, which I have had some experience with. In fact, I helped my mom just this past August with her canning. Almost every year around August our kitchen has a distinctive tomato scent that hits you as soon as you walk through the door. The scent fills the whole house and there is not one room that doesn’t have the smell of tomatoes reaching your nose. This year my Paw-Paw brought his homegrown tomatoes down to us to can since we quit gardening a few years ago. I completely agree with Barbara Kingsolver’s statement when she says, “Fresh garden tomatoes are so unbelievably tasty, they ruin us utterly and forever on the insipid imports available in the grocery.” (198). From the first time I tasted a homegrown tomato the taste of a store bought one was never the same. Towards the end of chapter 13 Barbara talks about how to can tomatoes. This is a fairly simple process that went along with how my mom taught me to can. First, you wash the tomatoes. Next, you dip 6 to 8 tomatoes into boiling water for about 30 seconds. Upon taking them out they are to be placed in ice cold water, which peels the skin right off. Then, using a knife, you cut the core......

Its Better to Have Brains Than Beauty

...INTRODUCTION The plays and prefaces of Bernard Shaw deal with many and diverse themes. At least four, however, concern themselves with evolutionary themes and ideas: Man and Superman, Back to Methusalah, The Simpleton of the Unexpected Isles, and Far-fetched Fables. In Man and Superman, especially the third act, the preface, and The Revolutionist's Handbook and Pocket Companion, Shaw touches on two main themes: the pursuit of man by woman and the direction of evolution, which Shaw sees as leading towards the development of the mind and brain. In Back to Methusalah, Shaw carries forward his vision of evolution as proceeding in the direction of mental development but introduces a seemingly new idea in the last play of the cycle, the antithesis of mind and body. Shaw's dualism receives its most explicit statement in the last play of the cycle although there may be indications of it in the earlier plays. The mind-body antithesis, however, derives as a philosophical problem from Descartes,1 although the antithesis also appeared in the Manichean and Gnostic heresies, the spirit, or mind, being regarded as good and the body as evil. Although the antithesis of body and mind makes its first open appearance in the Methusalah cycle, it is present, at least as an implicit assumption in Man and Superman. Don Juan continually expresses his longing for the life of contemplation, a life which is to be achieved at the expense of the body. We will deal with the presence of the mind body......

Tablets: Better Than Books

...Valen Schaefer Bryan Feliciano Rosa Tables: Better than Books The focus of our group project revolves around the notion that tablets, regardless of type and name brand, are more beneficial and easier to use than regular textbooks. Textbooks have been a way of life for generations. Many of you may remember carrying 4-6 books in your backpack every week from Monday to Friday during school. In college, you would normally have to purchase the textbooks you’ll need for whatever classes you’re taking. And some of those textbooks are hundreds and hundreds of pages long. This was never really an issue in the past, but now, all this has been made simpler thanks to the advent of tablets. Our group will discuss the history of the tablet, its cost effectiveness and weight savings over textbooks, how it’s easier to find information for any research you may be doing, and how some of the schools have begun integrating the use of tablets. The very first tablet PC was introduced during the 1980s, in those days however, it was referred to as pen computing. Pencept is the name of the company that’s often credited with creating the first pen computer. The company teamed up with CIC in 1985 to create a line of PCs that used handwriting recognition technology. Windows pen computing came in the 1990s, but the application had limited use and sold in small numbers. It wasn’t until 2002 that...

...Tatted for life Jessica Castellano Baker College Tatted for life Couples exchange wedding rings to represent an unbreakable bond they have with one another. They also symbolize a lifelong devotion. More recently wedding band tattoos have become more common to see on many celebrities. They are also more likely to be seen on the fingers of Doctors and mechanics, rather than the traditional wedding bands. Wedding ring tattoos are a gorgeous way to symbolize your marriage, and to tell your partner that you believe this union is forever. So who’s to say that wedding rings are the only way to unify a marriage? Traditionally, couples exchange wedding rings to unify their marriage. Now days a lot more couples have chosen a different alternative to proving their love for one another. “It’s an important physical symbol of commitment” (Mcneil, 2008). Wedding ring tattoos have become more popular, especially with the celebrities. Celebrities such as Kathy Griffin, Ashlee Simpson, Jenna Jameson, Howard Stern, Hulk Hogan, Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson are known to have a tattoo symbolizing their dedication to their significant other. Even Levi Johnston, was said to have “Bristol” tattooed on his ring finger. In addition to celebrities having wedding ring tattoos, many everyday people are getting these tattoos as well.

...deliver a speech under the topic of “Beauty vs Brain” Ladies and gentleman, If God gave us ability and we had to choose ,which one would you prefer?would you prefer your looks or your personality?your beauty or your brain?maybe half of us will be so confused to choose,because half of people think that beauty is the most advantegous and half of people think that brain is more important. In reality,nowadays people gives value to looks more than personality. Nowadays people gives more chance to the beautiful one than the intelligent one. It’s sad that we live in a world where looking good gets you further in life than being intelligent. How it could be like this?this situation happens because we always judge the book by its cover,we just see the looks,but we never care about its contents. But,when it comes to me to choose whether the beauty or the brain,I’ll immediately choose the brain. Here in my speech, I’ll give 3 reasons why brain is so much better than beauty. My first reason,brain is better than beauty because brain is countable in most of the areas or most of the stages of human life. Brain is something that’s real. Brain enables you to improve many different things in life. The experience you have,the books you read,the classes you take, will continue throughout your life,and will only add to your brain power. It is said that beauty is only skin deep, which implies that if things on the outside change, then there will be no more beauty. I believe it is much more......

Beauty vs Brain

...All throughout magazine’s, girls are shown what they should and should not look like. For instance, have you ever seen an overweight person on the cover of a magazine? This example is why so many girls are self conscious, because they are not only constantly judged by everyone around them, but also by guys. I think that guys play a major part in why girls sometimes do not feel pretty enough. For one, most guys do not talk to the girls that they do not feel are up to their “standards.” In most cases, personality is the last thing that even matters. Most guys only care about the outside appearance. Even though they say that they look for sweet, beautiful girls, they tend to go for the brainless fake girls instead. Even though guys might say that they want sophisticated girls that are intelligent and sweet, they usually don’t keep their word. Unfortunately, girls cannot control the looks they are born with, but it is also up to them weather to change themselves just for the benefit of guys. Having high expectations is not only rude, but it is also making girls be something they are not. If a guy truly liked a girl, he would accept the way she was and not ask her to change. Even though magazines show that we are supposed to look thin, with perfect hair and a perfect body, girls cannot be perfect no matter how hard we try. Even though on the surface, a girl may act like they are comfortable with being someone who they aren’t, they would much rather be accepted the way they......
