Techniques For Maintaining Good Karma
The rebirth of interest in training research can be traced principally to three influential papers appearing between 1985 and 1990 (Baldwin & Ford, 1988 Howell & Cooke, 1989 Noe, 1986). The first of these was by Noe, who proposed and later tested (Noe & Schmitt, 1986) amodel of training effectiveness. Noe's fundamental thesis was that training success was determined not only by the quality of training (or the effectiveness of a specific method), but by interpersonal, social, and structural characteristics reflecting the relationship of the trainee and the training program to the broader organizational context. Variables such as organizational support or an individual's readiness for training could augment or negate the direct impact of the training itself. Noe's original model has been refined several times, both by other authors (Cannon-Bowers, Salas, Tannenbaum, & Mathieu, 1995) and by Noe and his colleagues (Colquitt et al., 2000) an updated training effectiveness model is...
In the 1950s, information processing theorists provided an alternative to behaviorism and offered a rebirth for cognitive psychology. Mayer (this volume) reviews the dominant influence of information processing theories of cognition over the past several decades. A major premise underlying information processing theory is that the human mind seeks to build and manipulate mental representations and that these cognitive processes can be accessed and studied through physiological responses and more recently, by using introspective interviews and other learning-based observations.

A cascade of explanations for the limited effects of antibiotics in children with acute otitis media (AOM). Of children with suspected AOM, only approximately 85 will actually have the condition (Karma et al., 1989). Only approximately 80 of children with true AOM have a bacterial infection (Howie et al., 1972), in which only approximately 82 of the bacteria are susceptible to the antibiotics used (Piglansky et al., 2003).

Only approximately 80 of children with true AOM have a bacterial infection (Howie et al., 1972), in which only approximately 82 of the bacteria are susceptible to the antibiotics used (Piglansky et al., 2003).
Accurately diagnosing AOM is challenging as young children have limited ability to describe symptoms, and physical examination may be limited by narrow external auditory canals and poor cooperation. Doctors may be uncertain of their diagnosis of AOM in up to 40 of cases (Rosenfeld et al., 2002 Karma et al., 1989). This can lead to over-diagnosis of AOM, resulting in potential iatrogenic harm due to increased use of antibiotics or referral to ENT specialists (in the case of recurrent infections), as well as potentially failing to identify the correct cause of the child's illness (Gonzalez-Vallejo et al., 1998). Diagnosis can be improved by having the parent correctly hold and restrain the child, and removing wax obscuring the tympanic membrane using blunt curettes or ceruminolytic agents (Schwartz et al., 1983 Singer et al., 2000). The mobility of the tympanic membrane can be assessed simply by insufflating a small amount of air using a bulb attachment to an otoscope (Takata et al.,...
