Palestinian women have slowly become active in the formal labor market in Israel. In this book, Vered Kraus and Yuval Yonay describe and analyse the labor experience of these Palestinian women, and explain why Palestinian and Jewish women have different rates and outcomes in the labor market. Challenging popular views that ascribe these differences to Arab culture and Islam, they instead find that it is state policies and widespread discrimination that hinder Palestinian women's participation and success. By including the various Palestinian sub-groups - Muslims, Bedouins, Druze, Christians, non-citizen residents of Jerusalem - this book shows how the specific life circumstances of the women from these subgroups affect their employment and achievements. The book thus enriches the acute discussion on the labour market experiences of Muslim and Arab women in the Middle East and North Africa and in advanced industrialized societies.
A sample of 427 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) was observed by the RHESSI
satellite in Feb. 2002 - Apr. 2008. We calculated spectral lags and peak-count
rates for the first time and constructed a new observational database. This database is
statistically studied completing an earlier analysis of durations and hardness ratios.
First, we discuss properties of short-, intermediate-, and long-duration GRBs in terms of
peak-count rates and spectral lags. Second, we investigate the number of GRB groups using
model-based clustering method together with Kolmogorov-Smirnov (K-S) and Anderson-Darling
(A-D) tests. The results are: The inter. bursts have properties similar to short bursts.
The groups of inter. and long bursts appear to be different. The inter. GRBs in the
RHESSI and Swift databases seem to be different
phenomena. This work is summary of Řípa et al. (2012).
Since the early 90s Gamma Ray Bursts have been accepted to be of extra-galactic origin
thanks to the isotropic distribution observed by BATSE and the redshifts observed in some
of their optical or infrared counterparts. Nevertheless, there have been a few cases that
upon further examination have turned out to be of galactic origin. Several of these
galactic sources have presented a Fast Rise, Exponential Decay structure which leads us to
believe that there could be an underlying correlation. In this work we do several
statistical analyses to determine the degree of contamination by galactic sources that
certain subsample of known FREDs have. And find that certain subsamples have a most
probable contamination between 27% and 34%.
