  • Have British Jews fully assimilated in the UK Labour Market?

    • Authors: Nabil Khattab
      Pages: 121 - 148
      Abstract: This paper analyses the patterns of occupational attainment and earnings among the Jewish community in Britain using UK Labour Force Survey data (2002-2010). The findings suggest that although British-Jews cannot be distinguished from the majority main stream population of British-White in terms of their overall occupational attainment and earnings, it seems that they have managed to integrate through patterns of self-employment and concentration in the service sector economy, particularly in banking and financial services. It is argued that this self-employment profile is a Jewish strategy used to minimise dependency on majority group employers and by doing so to helping to escape any religious penalties.

  • Rural Depopulation in China: A Comparative Perspective

    • Authors: Xingan Li
      Pages: 149 - 174
      Abstract: Modernization of Chinese society witnessed significant retreat of primary and growth of secondary and tertiary industries. The result of rapid urbanization has been accompanied with rapid rural depopulation, context of which is currently labeled by intertwining of many correlation factors. Rural depopulation can be perceived as a social problem and as a reason or other social problems, affecting sustainable socio-economic development. In turn, rural depopulation and relevant policy-making are also interplaying, making the issue more irreversible.

Para tal efecto se estudia el fenómeno ocurrido en la twitósfera mexicana tras el conflicto de 43 estudiantes normalistas desaparecidos en el sur de México, a saber el caso del hashtag #YaMeCansé, mismo que es el más extenso (35 días) en la historia de las redes sociales en México.

  • The Impact of New Technologies on Leisure in Developed and Emerging

    • Authors: Lynne Ciochetto
      Pages: 194 - 214
      Abstract: In the last two decades there has been an exponential increase in worldwide computer use, followed by a similar expansion in mobile phone usage. There are a number of factors caused this increase: technological advances in functionality, the migration of computer use from work to the home environment,  increased accessibility of data through the increased capacity of search engines and the rapid growth in popularity of social media websites after 2004.  The exponential growth of mobile phone use followed a similar but more rapid trajectory and the user base expanded in emerging economies when 3G mobile phone technologies provided internet access. There has been a major shift in the way people communicate particularly the exponential increase in the use of social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Bebo, Skype and Baibu. Sites such as iTunes and YouTube have changed the way music and video are accessed, listened to and used. Changing patterns of technology use have had a major impact on the way people conduct their lives and have impacted significantly on leisure activities in both developed and emerging economies: the types of activities and the way those activities are pursued in both at home and when people travel.
