( . ) / ]}1/2 = 0.87 Based on the observed r-value, the hypothesis that the true correlation is zero can be tested by referring to a critical value of Appendix Table A-11 with k-2 degrees of freedom. The tabular value from Appendix Table A-11 for 4 degrees of freedom and at the 5% level is 0.81. Thus we again have evidence for a significant linear relationship. In calculating r, it is immaterial which variable is designated as dependent or independent. In computing the regression coefficient, b, it is important to recognize which of the two variables depends on the other. r and b are related as follows: r b b YX XY ! with the same sign as bYX or b XY. The coefficient bYX represents the regression of Y on X and bXY is the regression of X on Y. From the formula of r, one can easily shown that r ! bYX #(x " X)2 / #(Y " Y)2 which is identical to the earlier calculation. Note that if there is variation among X's and Y's, a nonzero r implies a nonzero b and vice versa. Therefore the F test for a nonzero ' is equivalent to the test for a nonzero r (Appendix Table A-11). Because r and r2 are related algebraically to regression, the sum of squares for regression and residual in Table 10-3 can be expressed in terms of r2. SSR Y Y r Y Y SSr y Y r y Y ! " ! $ " ! " !

... Group of the CCP, are still making the key decisions, but a more pluralistic environment is emerging and allowing business leaders to help shape foreign policy. The China Institute for International Studies, a government think tank, holds numerous conferences bringing together academics and leaders in business, the military, and the government to devise strategies for the top rung of the Communist Party. Partly on these people's advice, Beijing has been encouraging representatives of state-controlled companies to secure exploration and supply agreements with states that produce oil, gas, and other resources. Meanwhile, it has been courting the governments of these states aggressively, building goodwill by strengthening bilateral trade relations, awarding aid, forgiving national debt, and helping build roads, bridges, stadiums, and harbors. In return, China has won access to key resources. 2.2.2 What can Thailand provides to China in this optic Threw this previous little analysis of China we first need to know if Thailand is in measure to ‘help’ China. Thailand is rich in natural resources. Among the known mineral deposits are coal, gold, lead, tin, tungsten, manganese, zinc, and precious stones. The rich alluvial soil along the Chao Phraya and other rivers constitutes another important resource. Natural gas deposits were discovered offshore in the 1970s, reducing Thailand's reliance on imported petroleum. Thailand is one of the world's leading producers of rice...

... countries. Poverty incidence has declined dramatically, but economics inequality has increased. Economic progress has been reflected in very significant improvement in non-economic indicators of well-being such as life expectancy, infant and maternal mortality, and literacy. Nevertheless, the performance of the education system is chronically poor. FIGURE -1 [pic] One of the most important periods for Thailand’s growth process is probably the one between 1950 and 1973, which was the period when Thailand laid foundations for the subsequent high and stable economic growth. In 1950, Thai economy found itself in state of recovering from the severe damages left over from the Second World War. This turbulence was only put to an end in 1958, when Field Marshall Sarit Thanarat took complete control of the power through a coup d’etat. Sarit brought with his premiership a vision to run the country according to the international standard, which was a combination of a idea to promote economic growth through macroeconomic management, favorable business environment, and institutional strengthening; and a strong sense of fiscal discipline. The fiscal discipline, exhibited mainly by the curb on public debt creation, was an indispensable ingredient to the uninterrupted process of high and stable economic growth during one and a half decades that followed. In this regard, Thailand was lucky to be able to build such vital fiscal discipline under the corrupt military rulings. One...

...Article: “Boat people to be sent back to Myanmar and uncertain fate” Website link: http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/asiapcf/02/26/rohingya.update/index.html#cnnSTCText Basically this article is about the ongoing internal conflict in Burma that has existed since approximately April 1948 between the Burmese government and the various ethnic groups in the country. More recently, the conflict has been against the military regime that has ruled the country since 1962. The conflict is the oldest ongoing wars in the world, and has received international attention as a result of the uprising in 1988, anti-government protests in late 2007, and the tragic devastation of Cyclone Nargis that claimed left over 80,000 dead and 50,000 missing in mid-2008. According to the article thousands of members of the Rohingya located in Myanmar are leaving their homelands because of fear of persecution and most countries, from Saudi Arabia to Malaysia, see them as little more than a source of cheap labor for the dirtiest and most dangerous jobs. But even those who make to Malaysia then struggle find good jobs and quickly discover that, there too, intolerance is growing. Many of the Rohingya people who in Malaysia live in cramped, rundown apartments in the capital, Kuala Lumpur, and face the constant threat of deportation. If caught, the migrants can be caned and imprisoned for up to five years. It’s devastating to hear another similar case like Rwanda to be happening in this world again.......

...Why is international trade important to Thailand and how do global events impact on global trade? International trade has played an important role to the economy in globalization. Nowsaday, many countries are interested in international business in order to get competitive advantage and can be survive in highly competitive world. They want to enlarge their market to other countries and can get lots of benefits such as seeking the lowest cost, avoiding transportation cost and trade teriffs. Why international trade is important to Thailand? There are 2 mains factors. First, different resources of production.The specific physical geography of Thailand is one of restrictions to produce some goods while natural features facilitate Thailand to has more capability to produce argricultural products and food such as rice, rubber, fruit, vegetables, seafood etc. In contrast, other countries have another type of resources and they can produce some goods at lower cost, for examples, The Middle East countries have petrolium energy and mining industry that Thailand has to import from them. Second, different knowledge skills and technologies. For example, Japan has great potential in producing electronic and automotive products and Switzerland is very famous for mechanical watch industry ,so Thailand has no choice to import electronic product and watch from those countries because their knowledge and new technology is at expertise level and they also produce...

... accept, the more certain you can be that the whole population answers would be within that range. For example, if you asked a sample of 1000 people in a city which brand of cola they preferred, and 60% said Brand A, you can be very certain that between 40 and 80% of all the people in the city actually do prefer that brand, but you cannot be so sure that between 59 and 61% of the people in the city prefer the brand. Factors that Affect Confidence Intervals There are three factors that determine the size of the confidence interval for a given confidence level: • Sample size • Percentage • Population size The mean is useful for predicting future results when there are no extreme values in the data set. However, the impact of extreme values on the mean may be important and should be considered. E.g.

... even permanent teams may be disbanded through organizational restructuring. As team leader, your concern is both for the team's goal and the team members. Breaking up a team can be stressful for all concerned and the "adjourning" or "mourning" stage is important in reaching both team goal and personal conclusions. The break up of the team can be hard for members who like routine or who have developed close working relationships with other team members, particularly if their future roles or even jobs look uncertain. Conflict resolution modes [pic] Compete (I win - You lose) Competitive style negotiators pursue their own needs - yes, even when this means others suffer. They usually don't want to cause others to suffer and lose, they are just so narrowly focused on their shorter term gains that they plunder obliviously through negotiations like a pirate. They often use whatever power and tactics they can muster, including their personality, position, economic threats, brand strength or size or market share. At its extreme negotiators call their behaviour aggressive or psychotic. When to use? When you need to act or get results quickly. Competition is critical when you are certain that something is not negotiable and immediate compliance is required. Competition can be an effective defense or counter balance to use against negotiators with a competitive conflict profile. We would recommend that you use a blended approach though, as both negotiation parties...
