Doctoral candidate Petcharat Lovichakorntikul presenting her paper (co-authored with myself) “Dharma Teaching in a High-Tech Hospital Environment” at the ICGBE International Conference 2013 (Bangkok: February 9th-10th, 2013) earlier today.

Abstract

As part of a predominantly Buddhist society, Thai people are familiar with the teaching of Buddhist lessons (i.e. Dharma) which are aimed at providing guidelines for living in society and dealing with social relationships, among other goals. In most cases, the experience of receiving Dharma takes place in personal time away from work and the workplace experience was mostly quite removed from the lessons of the monks. However, some organisations have sought to incorporate Dharma teaching into their human resources practices. This is true of certain leading hospitals in central Thailand, where hospital management hopes to inculcate the kind of loving, mindful compassion in its nursing and medical staff that is associated with Buddhist practice. Reports from human resource management suggest that the introduction of such programmes of study and meditation have been well-received and have contributed to the high level of retention of the staff involved. The use of Dharma and related issues is employed in the areas both of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and human resource development, with the former aimed at external stakeholders and the latter mostly at internal stakeholders. This case study examines a leading hospital in Thailand with a view to identifying how the Dharma lessons and related activities have had an impact upon workplace behaviour, productivity and the degree of commitment that workers feel for their work and their employer.

How are you voting in massachusetts

Folks, here is how i'm voting
1. end the state income tax. i'll vote to end it. i'm afraid the town is going to raise taxes to make up for the deficit and there's less resources to fight local towns than on state level.
2. decriminalization of pot. there's a lot of scare tactics on how pots is dangerous and such. while not a user myself, i have to try hard and be fair. i'll vote to ... whom he has nothing in common.
One of the crowd is so moved by this testimony as to yell: "I love you, Tucker!" "I love you too," he shoots back, "And I mean that in a nonerotic, but powerful way." I can't help but think that this sort of interaction is good for the personal growth of the Paultards, as Tucker will introduce them to something they've likely never experienced before: irony.

Your post about your observations of the filene's store manager in nashua, new hampshire concerned me enough to write their human resources department. not because it seemed to be an unusual circumstance, but because it happens far too often.
i spoke with the director of human resources this morning who apologized and heartily agreed that the interaction you witnessed was highly inappropri.... and the director assured me that she did not consider it an excuse.
all managers are going to be informed that this incident took place and the concern that it has caused. this is not an incident that they want repeated for any of their customers regardless of age, race or the emotional state of their employees.
i know it doesn't change what happened, but i just wanted you to know.

Short answer

An article in Rolling Stone (October 20, 1994) by Adam Miller called J. Philippe Rushton a 'professor of hate,' someone who 'takes money from an organization with a terrible past' (the Pioneer Fund, a foundation said to have an orientation toward eugenics). He is accused of being 'obsessed with intelligence and genetics' to the point of having 'racist' attitudes by Jeffrey Rosen and Charles Lane...t is precisely this set of relationships that elevates social science above and beyond empiricism in theory or racism in practice. For these reasons, Professor Rushton is and must be considered a valued member of both the academic and scientific communities to which he contributes. We need to be reminded that those truths held to be self-evident are those which are most in need of reexamination.
