    • W. J. Johnson, Oxford Dictionary of Hinduism

      Clémentin-Ojha, Catherine (2011)
      Avec l'élévation du niveau de nos connaissances sur l'hindouisme et le développement spectaculaire des études en tout genre le concernant, nous assistons actuellement à la multiplication d'ouvrages de référence, de manuels, d'encyclopédies et de collections d'essais, qui tous sont destinés à faire le point du savoir sur les différents aspects de ce vaste phénomène. La plupart de ces ouvrages sont toutefois volumineux. Restait donc à mettre l'hindouisme dans un petit dictionnaire. Tel a été le dessein de l'auteur de cet ouvrage de la dimension modeste d'un livre de poche que publient les presses de l'université d'Oxford. Pour prendre la mesure de son entreprise, nul terme ne semble plus adéquat que « hindouisme ».
    • Wacana Kesetaraan Gender

      Muqoyyidin, Andik Wahyun (IAIN Gorontalo, 2013-12)
      This paper discusses the perspectives of gender equality as understood by the muslim feminists. In general, it can be mentioned that the purpose of the struggle of feminism is equality, dignity, and freedom of women in choosing and managing life and her body, both inside and outside of household.
    • Wacana Non Dominan

      Kau, Sofyan A.P.; Suleman, Zulkarnain (IAIN Gorontalo, 2013-12)
      "The paper pays a lot of attention to the issue of diversity of women jurisprudence which is actually seen as an alternative, that is, ‘gender’ perspective kind of fiqh. This paper offers a non mainstreamdiscourse over the fiqh by presenting and assessing ‘gender’ perspective kind of jurisprudence. This is done because it is seen that most discourse over women jurisprudence were dominated by gender inequality; and therefore it should be thoroughly criticized."
    • WACC llama a comunicar la paz a través de expresiones prácticas [WACC calls communicate peace through expressions practices]

      NS Nuevo Siglo (CLAI Consejo Latinoamericano de Iglesias, 2010)
      "PARA conmemorar el Día Internacional de la Paz, el 21 de septiembre, la Asociación Mundial para la Comunicación Cristiana (WACC, por sus siglas en inglés) hace un llamado a los individuos y las organizaciones de la sociedad civil, para que comuniquen la paz y creen expresiones prácticas para la construcción de ella."
    • WACC-SIGNIS Human Rights Award 2010

      WACC-SIGNIS Human Rights Award 2010 (World Association for Christian Communication, 2011-01)
      The legacy of devastation and trauma in Afghanistan is explored in The Garden at the End of the World, which depicts the tragic consequences of war and the widespread hunger, homelessness and lawlessness that it causes. Winner of the WACC-SIGNIS Human Rights Award 2010, it shows the impact on the lives of some of the people hardest hit: widows and orphans who now number tens of thousands. The film follows the work of two remarkable women – humanitarian Mahboba Rawi, and internationally recognised permaculturalist Rosemary Morrow, who offer alternatives to international ‘reconstruction’ efforts that have patently not worked.
    • WACC-SIGNIS Human Rights Award 2012

      World Association for Christian Communication (World Association for Christian Communication, 2013-02)
      The WACC-SIGNIS Human Rights Award 2012 has gone to the documentary film Forbidden Voices directed by Barbara Miller (Switzerland, 2012). In Cuba, China and Iran the blogs of Yoani Sánchez, Zeng Jinyan and Farnaz Seifi are upsetting the state monopoly on information, although what these women write puts their lives at risk.
    • Waco

      Reavis, Dick (Marymount Manhattan College, 2014-07)
      "In 1995 Simon and Schuster published my account of the 1993 events at Mt. Carmel, The Ashes of Waco. 1 Following the exhaustion of its stocks, the book was picked up by Syracuse University Press, which has kept it in print. The book has become the primer for people who are interested in the bloody confrontation between the federal government and the followers of David Koresh, and I am still convinced that it deserves that status. The work has not been without its critics. Those who apologize for the government’s actions accurately sense that my sympathies were not with it, but have not questioned the facts I presented. And some of those who are themselves critics of the government’s conduct complain not about the facts I cited, but about those I didn’t record."
    • WADA´s Anti-doping policy and athletes´ right to privacy [WADA's Antidopaje política y athletes' derecho a la privacidad]

      Tamburrini, Claudio (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2013)
      "In accordance with the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (Wada) Anti-doping Code, athletes are regularly tested for forbidden doping substances in connection with sport competitions. Their samples are stored for long time, in case new doping detection techniques are developed in the future that might allow finding forbidden substances not detectable at present. As Wada’s ambition is not only to have clean competitions, but also clean athletes, different measures need to be implemented to facilitate testing inbetween competitions as well. One of them is making sportspersons fill a form to inform doping controllers about their whereabouts, so that they can reach the athletes and make them undergo unannounced tests. Wada’s anti-doping policy has been widely criticized for violating athletes’ right to privacy. However, this debate is often carried out as if it was crystal clear what kind of right this supposed athletes’ right to privacy is. In this article, the notion of privacy is characterized as a previous step to asking in which regards Wada’s anti-doping policy might turn out to be problematic from the point of view of privacy protection. A preliminary conclusion reached is that the right of privacy is not a single right, but rather a cluster of rights, each one designed to protect different areas of our lives, and each one derived in its turn from other, more fundamental rights. A further conclusion to be advanced in this article is that Wada’s whereabouts policy cannot be condoned by any of the moral philosophical approaches traditionally discussed in connection with privacy" [""De acuerdo con las normas de la Agencia Mundial Antidopaje (Siglas en Inglés: WADA), los atletas, en el marco de las competiciones deportivas, son regularmente evaluados para comprobar si han consumido sustancias dopantes prohibidas. Sus muestras se almacenan durante mucho tiempo mientras se desarrollan técnicas de detección de dopaje que podrían permitir la búsqueda de sustancias prohibidas no detectables en la actualidad. Pero como la ambición de WADA no es sólo contar con competiciones limpias, sino también tener a los atletas limpios, diferentes medidas deben ser implementadas para facilitar las pruebas también en las competiciones. Una de ellas consiste en que los deportistas llenen un formulario para informar a los controladores antidopaje de su paradero, para que así puedan llegar a los atletas y someterlos a pruebas sin previo aviso. La política antidopaje de la Wada ha sido ampliamente criticada por violar el derecho a la intimidad de los atletas. Aun así, este debate es a menudo llevado a cabo como si hubiese una clara delimitación del referido derecho a la intimidad de los atletas. En este artículo, la idea de intimidad está caracterizada como paso previo a la pregunta referida a si la política antidopaje de la Wada podría resultar problemática desde el punto de vista de la protección de intimidad. Una conclusión preliminar es que el derecho a la intimidad no es un derecho aislado, sino un grupo de derechos, cada uno dirigido a proteger diferentes áreas de nuestras vidas, y cada cual derivado a su vez de otros derechos más fundamentales. Otra conclusión en este artículo es que la política del paradero de la Agencia Mundial Antidopaje no puede ser tolerada por cualquiera de los enfoques filosóficos morales tradicionales discutidos en conexión con la privacidad""]
    • Wade Clark Roof. Spiritual Marketplace: Baby Boomers and the Remaking of American Religion. Princeton: Princeton University Press. 323 pages. $16.95 (Paper); $50.65 (Cloth).

      Markuly, Mark S. (Rabbi Myer and Dorothy Kripke Center for the Study of Religion and Society, 2002)
      "Spiritual Marketplace is a descriptive tapestry of the nation's changing spiritual makeup, and the influence Baby Boomers are having on this process of transformation. Wade Roof, perhaps the leading authority on Boomer religiosity and spirituality, creates his tapestry from the spiritual and religious narratives of the Boomers themselves. Through their narratives, he identifies themes that demonstrate this generation's strong, but very different kind of religious and spiritual orientation. [2] Spiritual Marketplace is built on the foundation of Roof's popular 1993 book, A Generation of Seekers, which began a longitudinal charting of the generation born between 1946 and 1964. This latest work weaves decades of social science research and American theological opinion into the fabric of the author's more than ten years of largely qualitative research on a national sample of Boomers. [3] Despite popular opinions and social science studies with contrary assertions, Roof maintains the vast majority of Boomers are deeply spiritual. Though it is true many of the 76 million women and men in this post-World War II generation do not share the stable religious identities and preferences of their parents' generation, a spiritual identity pervades their lives. It just exists in a more amorphous form, characterized by a restless spiritual search, a type of Arthurian "quest culture." Roof estimates about 75% of the women and men in the boomer generation are actively engaged in some form of this search-oriented posture toward spirituality and religion. [4] It is no secret many Boomers have detached or decreased attachment to the moorings of traditional religious organizations that provided much of the cultural "meaning making" in the first two centuries of the American republic. Roof's work is unique, however, in its detailed description of the "spiritual marketplace" emerging over the past half-century and the culture's new suppliers of "meaning making." The author chronicles the Boomers demand for new spiritual and religious perspectives and resources, especially those that address their hunger for self-authenticity and intimate relationships, the improvement of family life, and the solution to ecological problems."(pg 1)
    • Wage and Employment Effects of Minimum Wage Policy in the Indonesian Urban Labor Market

      Suryahadi, Asep; Widyanti, Wenefrida Dwi; Perwira, Daniel; Rahayu, Sri Kusumastuti (The SMERU Institute, 2001-10)
      Since the late 1980s, minimum wages have become an important plank of the Indonesian government's labor market policy. During much of the 1990s, minimum wages have increased faster than both average wages and gross domestic product. Furthermore, during the last two years, in 2000 and 2001, the government has vigorously pursued the minimum wage policy, evident from the large increases in the levels of real minimum wages. As a result, minimum wages have become binding for the majority of workers and affect the entire wage distribution. The effects, however, differ across different types of workers. This study finds that minimum wages have had a positive but statistically insignificant effect on average wages. On the other hand, minimum wages have had a negative and statistically significant effect on employment. In particular, the disemployment effects are greatest for women, youth, and less educated workers. On the other hand, the employment prospects of white-collar workers are enhanced by increases in minimum wages.
    • Waging war against rotavirus at home and abroad

      MacDonald, Noni E.; Rosenfield, Daniel (Canadian Medical Association, 2012)
      "Rotavirus is the most common cause of severe diarrhea in infants and young children worldwide. Recent studies have provided strong evidence that rotavirus vaccines are safe and efficacious in both the developed and the developing world. 1–3 Although Canada has shown leadership in making this life-saving vaccine available to the poorest countries, it could do much more to help children both at home and abroad."
    • Wahai Pengikut Kristus, Mainkanlah Drama yang Mentransformasikan itu!

      Yosia, Adrianus (UKSW Salatiga, 2015-12)
      This article calls Christians to engage in true, transformative action, in Indonesia. To attain to such an alluring provocation, I employ the theatrical ideas of Kevin J. Vanhoozer—namely his thought contribution of "the drama of doctrine"—which I propose finds suitable complement in Miroslav Volf’s "prophetic religion"-descriptor of Christianity." The combination results in the constructive theopoetic composite I call "transformative drama"—namely, theatrical Christian action that effects change within and leverages impact upon the social locations of the transformative-active Christian.

      Wahid, Abd. (UIN Suska Riau, 2015)
      This essay reveals a scholar who is steady to science for Islamic advancement, trying to spread his message through a variety of writings throughout the world, he is Wahbah Zuhailiy, a Syrian scholar. He is not only a scholar of Shariah expert having a lot of writings about fiqh, he is also an expert of interpretation. It is proved by three books of commentary written by him, one of the famous books is al-Tafsir Munir. Through this book, he revealed the intention verses of the Qur’an more clearly. In interpreting the verses, he used the methods of maudhu’i, besides used Tahlili. For the pattern, he tended to use Adabi Ijma’i and faqhi pattern. Although there are many commendations to this interpretation, it still has many weaknesses. it is obviously what Wahbah Zuhailiy has put itself on the level of scholar’s interpretation of this century.
    • Wahrheit in Offenheit

      Bernhardt, Reinhold (Schweizerischer Evangelischer Kirchenbund SEK / Verlag Schweizerischer Evangelischer Kirchenbund SEK, 2007)
      "Wie können wir die eigene Glaubensüberzeugung leben und gleichzeitig mit Menschen zusammenleben, die ihrerseits von ihrem Glauben überzeugt sind? Was ist Wahrheit? Diese Grundfragen einer pluralistischen Gesellschaft stellen sich heutzutage verstärkt – vor allem auch den Christen. Nachdem sich politische Orientierungen und Lebensstile schon seit einiger Zeit pluralisiert haben, sind wir nun zunehmend auch mit einer grösseren religiösen Vielfalt konfrontiert. Angehörige anderer Religionsgemeinschaften treten uns selbstbewusst und selbstverständlich gegenüber. Die vorliegende Stellungnahme des Rates SEK sucht aus dem christlichen Bekenntnis zur Wahrheit des Evangeliums heraus nach Wegen zu Andersgläubigen und -denkenden. Sie greift dazu bewusst auf die eigenen theologischen Grundlagen zurück. Der Rat SEK ist überzeugt, dass die Klärung des christlichen Wahrheitsverständnisses gleichzeitig der Schlüssel zu einer offenen Haltung gegenüber Andersgläubigen ist."
    • Wait times in the emergency department for patients with mental illness

      Atzema, Clare L.; Schull, Michael J. (Canadian Medical Association, 2012)
      "Patients in Ontario with mental illness waited slightly longer to see a physician than other patients when the emergency department was not crowded, specifically patients who were given a high priority triage score. Other indicators, such as time to receive a hospital bed and triage categorization, also suggest that these patients do not receive slower care. The wait times for patients with mental illness will likely improve with the overall Emergency Room Wait Time Strategy and with similar strategies implemented in other provinces and regions."
    • Waiting for children’s surgery in Canada

      Wright, James G.; Menaker, Rena J. (Canadian Medical Association, 2011)
      "We implemented a standardized, Canada-wide approach, developed by clinicians and based on clinical need, to the evaluation of pediatric surgical wait times in all surgical subspecialties. Overall, 27% of pediatric patients from across Canada received surgery beyond their standardized target period for access to surgery. We believe this national collaborative project shows the feasibility and potential benefits of setting national standards for surgical wait times. Such accountability can result in measurably improved access in the delivery of national publicly funded health care."
    • Waiting for medical care

      Shortt, S.E.D. (Canadian Medical Association, 1999)
      "Medical care should be different. Queuing for a bus or a theatre on a first come, first served basis seems entirely reasonable, but most Canadians would agree that medical services should be allocated on the basis of need, such that the worst off are at the front of the queue. Who you know should be, quite simply, irrelevant in the allocation of medical care. But how do these moral precepts play out in practice? In this issue1 (page 813) Dr. David A. Alter and colleagues expand our appreciation of the complexity of such equity concerns"
    • Waiting for medical services in Canada

      Sanmartin, Claudia (Canadian Medical Association, 2000)
      "Canadians’ long-standing approval of their health care system declined significantly during the 1990s. While 61% of respondents to a 1991 Angus Reid poll rated the system “excellent” or “very good,” that figure had fallen to 52% by 1995, and was just 24% in 1999.1 This erosion of confidence may have been fuelled, in part, by extensive media coverage of claims about increased waiting times for many surgical procedures and investigations. Almost two-thirds of those surveyed in a 1997 CMA poll felt that waiting times for surgery had grown over the previous 12 months, and half felt that access to specialists had become more difficult.2 These figures were up from 53% and 40% respectively in a similar 1996 poll.2 Recent surveys of family physicians,3,4 specialists5,6 and health-related nongovernmental organizations7 suggest that they share the public’s perceptions. In contrast, provincial government officials generally appear much less convinced that waiting is a pressing issue.8 Moreover, empirical studies published by 3 provincial governments between 1996 and 1998 reported no significant increase in waiting times for most surgical procedures."
    • Waiting for the doctor...

      Mamdani, Meenal (Forum for Medical Ethics Society, 2007-07)
      "In many countries in the West, outpatient services are primarily provided through standalone doctors’ offices or group practices, or through outpatient services attached to tertiary care hospitals. Patients are seen by appointment in the outpatients’ clinic. The time of the appointment is based on whether a patient is new or has visited before, usually in the past one year, and is thus considered a follow up. New patients are assigned more time, usually 30 to 45 minutes; follow up patients are assigned 15 to 20 minutes. Most doctors’ offices divide the available clinic time into slots for new and follow up patients, and patients are scheduled into these slots according to availability. Doctors will usually accept some overbooking for urgent cases or walk-ins who come for acute exacerbation of a chronic problem."
