Forms of research
Forms of research comprises creative work undertaken on a systematic basis in order to increase the stock of knowledge, including knowledge of humans, culture and society, and the use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applications. his research provides scientific information and theories for the explanation of the nature and the properties of the world.
It makes practical applications possible. Scientific research is funded by public authorities, by charitable organizations and by private groups, including many companies. Scientific research can be subdivided into different classifications according to their academic and application disciplines. Approaches to research depend on epistemologies, which vary considerably both within and between humanities and sciences.
Some pronunciation shifts are squarely on my radar. For example, I feel like I am hearing more and more people pronounce the noun program with a schwa in the second syllable. For me, the second syllable sounds like gram; for these other speakers, it sounds like grum. When it comes to the noun researcher, the stress is always on the second syllable for me. But students in my class reported that they can put the stress on the first syllable of researcher too.
Congress is poised to back NSF’s approach to research
Congress has reached a truce and possibly a lasting settlement in the fiercely partisan 3 year war between Republican leaders in the House of Representatives and the scientific community over how the National Science Foundation should operate. The terms of the agreement, between House and Senate negotiators, may seem like minor changes. But other issues transcend the agency, like reducing the administrative burden on universities receiving federal funds, policing scientific misconduct, and allowing for travel to scientific conferences.
Research Perhaps Market Forces
Patients are believed to be uninformed about hospital quality, insurance reduces the incentives to shop for better deals, and government programs aren’t sufficiently responsive to quality. This argument for “health care exceptionalism” supports the view that hospitals with superior outcomes aren’t rewarded in the form of landing more patients, which stymies innovation and quality-improvement efforts. Poorly performing hospitals do not feel pressure from patients to improve quality because standard market forces do not apply to health care.
