Thoughts about Social Media

I am just taking my first steps as a PhD student and attended a course about researcher’s social media with an open mind. It wasn’t a long time ago when introverts were respected leaders of the world. It wasn’t a long time ago when persons that said randomly a few relevant words that the most listened and had the highest power. Then came the Internet with Facebook, Instagram, Tweets, Hashtags and all extroverts loved these tools. Suddenly, sharing and openness was the only way.

Ympäristömelun valvonta langattomilla sensoriverkoilla

Tulevaisuudessa tarvitaan entistä enemmän meluvalvontaa. Itsenäiset sensoriverkot kehittyvät luotettavampaan ja tarkempaan suuntaan. Langattomilla sensoriverkoilla voidaan rakentaa tiheitä ja laajoja ympäristönseurantaan tarkoitettuja tiedonkeruujärjestelmiä. Näillä järjestelmillä avautuu ennennäkemättömät mahdollisuudet ympäristön tutkimiseen.

Pirullinen ongelma -missä F?

Seison kartta kädessä Vaasan yliopiston kampuksella ja yritän hahmottaa minne suunnata. Tilanteessa on vahvaa symboliikkaa. Olen kuin vuorikiipeilijä, joka seisoo sydän pelonsekaisesta kunnioituksesta pamppaillen everestinsä juurella. Edessä olisi pitkä ja voimia vaativa matka. Miten ihmeessä ikinä selviän siitä?

Corporate environmental reporting practices: Where does Finland stand?

Industrial activities are directly responsible for incidents that put the natural environment under threat (Jones, 2010). For instance, the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska in 1989, Chernobyl disaster in 1986 and Bhopal gas tragedy in 1984 are some of the incidents that brought about severe environmental degradation.

Participation of Young Immigrants in Finnish Social Services

A few years ago I worked for a project, which aimed to promote young immigrants’ participation and prevent social exclusion. In the project I had an opportunity to collect research material to my own research, which concerns participation of the young immigrants in the context of Finnish social services. I interviewed young immigrants, social workers and social management. I studied how young immigrants, social workers and social management see participation of young immigrants in the context...

Socially they are valued in a very positive way, and of course, we think about the difficulties that this career must entail and we attribute them a high capacity to make efforts and to sacrifice do sacrifices.
