Dean Abela Presents A Catechism For Business To Pope Francis
A Catechism for Business, co-edited with Dr. Joseph Capizzi of the School of Theology and Religious Studies, to Pope Francis. Dean Abela was in Rome participating in the annual meeting of the Fondazione Centesimus Annus Pro Pontifice, a Vatican business founded by Pope St. John Paul II for the promotion of the Social Doctrine of the Church.
Dean Abela presenting his publication A Catechism for Business to Pope Francis. The meeting was centered on whether solidarity and fraternity can be factors in business decisions. Explicitly stated, was the knowledge that “corporate responsibility,” as it is understood, is not enough to address the financial problems of our age.
Rather, the conference brought together prominent business market leaders and people of the educational community to go over the need for a “more dynamic” understanding of fraternity in economics and the practical implications it would have on the business world. Dean Abela led an interview of five business executives who discussed the use of Catholic solidarity in business decisions. A Catechism for Business attracts jointly the Church’s Social Doctrine on business, structured by question and subject. It serves as a reference guide for Catholic business leaders who wish to deepen their faith and grow in their knowledge of Catholic Social Doctrine as applied to business.
SIGTRAN (SIGnaling TRANsport) An IP telephony protocol from the IETF that is utilized to transfer SS7 indicators over IP networks. The telco switch sends SS7 signals to a signaling gateway (SG) that turns them into SIGTRAN packets, which travel over IP to another signaling gateway or even to a softswitch if the destination is not another PSTN.
SIGTRAN uses the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) for reliable transport. See IP telephony and SCTP. MGCP/MEGACO (Media Gateway Control Protocol/MEdia GAteway COntroller) An IP telephony signaling protocol from the IETF. MGCP was the original protocol, which progressed into MEGACO. Both protocols are created for implementation in IP phones that are lower cost than H or SIP.323 phones. MGCP/MEGACO requires the use of softswitches for call control and more resembles the telephony model of the circuit-switched PSTN than do SIP and H.323.
The softswitch is aware of the whole call throughout its duration (it manages condition) and enables the operator treatment like the PSTN. MCGP/MEGACO is a mixture of the SGCP and IPCD protocols, and many devices that put into action MGCP/MEGACO also support SIP and/or H.323. SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) An IP telephony signaling protocol developed by the IETF.
Primarily used for voice over IP (VoIP) calls, SIP may also be used for video or any media type; for example, SIP has been used to create multi-player Quake games. H.323 An ITU standard for realtime videoconferencing and tone of voice over packet networks, including LANs, WANs, and the web. Although H.323 is an extremely extensive standard that supports tone of voice, video, data, application whiteboarding, and sharing, the parts relating to audio protocols have been widely used for IP telephony applications.
TMN (Telecommunications Management Network) A set of international criteria for network management from the ITU. It is used by large providers such as Sprint, MCI WorldCom, and AT&T. Bluetooth can be an open standard for short-range transmission of digital data and tone of voice that facilitates point-to-point and multipoint applications. Jini Pronounced “gee-nee.” A Java-based distributed processing environment from Sun in which devices can be connected to the network and automatically offer their services and make use of other services on the network.
- Research is Vital
- Sourcing product packaging materials
- Develop a set of recommendations for the ongoing process of hazard recognition,
- Professional development
Jini creates a “network dialtone” allowing, for example, any PDA or laptop to be connected in and immediately have the ability to use printers and other resources. Linux An extremely popular version of the Unix operating-system that runs on a variety of hardware platforms including x86, Itanium, PowerPC, and IBM’s entire product line.
Linux is trusted as a server OS and is gaining the floor in the desktop market. Windows NT (Windows New Technology) A 32-little-bit operating system from Microsoft for Intel x86 CPUs. NT is the primary technology in Windows 2000 and Windows XP (see Windows). Available in individual server and client variations, it offers built-in networking and preemptive multitasking.
