Caught In The Headlights: Revising The Road Kill Hypothesis Of Antebellum Illinois Bank Failures, Scott N. Clayman, Scott Deacle, Andrew J. Economopoulos
Business and Economics Faculty Publications
Illinois had a dismal free banking experience, with over 80% of its free banks failing by the start of the Civil War. Researchers agree that a dramatic change in bond prices was the catalyst, and some have shown that the riskiest banks, ex ante, were the most likely to fail. This study examines how Illinois free banks adjusted their portfolios in the face of increased political and financial risks prior to Abraham Lincoln’s election as president. Lincoln’s nomination in May 1860 and the Democratic Party schism in June 1860 raised the likelihood of secession and the potential for ...
Cost Benefit Analysis Of Genetic Markers In Cattle, 2017 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville
Cost Benefit Analysis Of Genetic Markers In Cattle, Josh Crystal
Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness Undergraduate Honors Theses
Genetic sequencing in beef cattle (L. Bos Taurus) is expected to aid producers select cattle with traits that enhance profitability. Using data from experimental trials conducted with Angus, Brahman, and their reciprocal cross, this project analyzes the profitability of grazing endophyte infected tall Fescue (L. Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) vs. Bermuda grass (L. Cynodon dactylon) pasture. The study is unique in the sense that actual cow-calf breeding failure rates (open cows were not culled) were tracked from 1991 to 1997 on herds that were bred to calf in spring and either exposed to fungal endophyte (L.Acremonium coenophialum Morgan-Jones and Gams ...
Image And Perception Of The Top Five American Tourist Cities As Represented By Snow Globes, 2017 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville
Image And Perception Of The Top Five American Tourist Cities As Represented By Snow Globes, Caitlin Malloy
Architecture Undergraduate Honors Theses
This thesis investigates the connection between popular culture’s perception of place and the physical augmentation of reality. Focusing on the top five tourist cities in America, this disparateness is observed through the lens of a souvenir: the snow globe.
The presentation of the work is broken into two parts: the written portion and the book of diagrams. A total of 45 snow globes (9 for each of the 5 cities) were selected for the study, each carefully analyzed for content to include monuments, colors, text, dimensions, realism, and layout. This resulted in a series of diagrams which graphically express ...
The Relationship Between The Human And Social Capital Characteristics Of Nascent Entrepreneurs And Expected Job Growth In The United States, 2017 The University of Southern Mississippi
The Relationship Between The Human And Social Capital Characteristics Of Nascent Entrepreneurs And Expected Job Growth In The United States, William Dwight Burge
The global financial crisis (GFC) that began in 2007 negatively impacted new business creation (Davidsson & Gordon, 2015). Entrepreneurship has been identified as a viable way to generate jobs in the United States since the 1970s (U.S. Small Business Administration, 2014). However, the literature suggests that there has been a decline in entrepreneurship in the United States (Clifton, 2015; Singh & Ogbolu, 2015). Capital is important to those individuals involved in entrepreneurship (Cetindamar, Gupta, Karadeniz, & Egrican, 2012), specifically, human capital and the social network connections or social capital resources of the entrepreneur (Becker, 1993; Schutjens & Völker, 2010).
This study determined the relationship between demographic, human capital, and social capital characteristics of nascent entrepreneurs and expected job growth in the United States. Human capital and social capital theories formed the foundation for the researcher's conceptual framework for this study. The study proposed a model with five variables based on the literature to determine the relationship between demographic, human capital, and social capital characteristics of nascent entrepreneurs and expected job growth in the United States: age, gender, education level ...

Putting The Honey On The Table: A Business Plan To Create A Successful Part-Time Beekeeping Operation, Samuel L. Goll
Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness Undergraduate Honors Theses
The objective of this thesis was to use a survey targeted at different niche markets to gain insights about different honey bee products and thereby to provide information for their economic feasibility when produced on a small, local scale for retailers that support such producers and cater to such consumer demand. Since cost of production information about operating an apiary is widely available, the focus of this work was on gaining marketing knowledge. One of the aspects of the survey was to develop a better sense of what potential resellers of honey bee products considered locally-produced. Another objective was to ...
The Design Of An Instrument To Assess Clinical Laboratories Efficacy Post Implementation Of The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act, 2017 University of Southern Mississippi
The Design Of An Instrument To Assess Clinical Laboratories Efficacy Post Implementation Of The Patient Protection Affordable Care Act, Harry Mcdonald Jr.
The healthcare system in the United States has undergone substantial changes in support of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). On March 23, 2010, the implementation of the new healthcare law brought universal healthcare access to all Americans, while attempting to increase quality and decrease medical costs. The new law promotes more of a quality-focused, outcome-based model rather than a pay-for-fee service model; thus, moving the paradigm from infrequent to preemptive healthcare. The PPACA postulates as the only way to achieve cost savings while increasing quality and access. Never before has there been such an extensive change to ...

The article will explore the action research steps for conducting phone employment interviews within the organization and an example of the process to follow. The outlined steps can ...
The Internal Revenue Code: A Burden For Taxpayers Or An Instrument For Social Change?, 2017 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
The Internal Revenue Code: A Burden For Taxpayers Or An Instrument For Social Change?, Heather N. Murray
Social engineering in the tax code has been evident from the beginning of the U.S. tax history. Today, it is as much as ever a part of the fabric of the tax codification, but there is very little research that investigates 1) how social engineering plays a role in the creation of new tax law, and 2) whether tax law is effective in altering taxpayer behavior. This paper streamlines the history of social engineering in the most popular revenue-reducing measures and analyzes how they've affected the U.S. taxpayer, with notes on future policy implications.
Is Human Capital Development The Missing Element Of The Aerotropolis Model?, 2017 University of Southern Mississippi
Is Human Capital Development The Missing Element Of The Aerotropolis Model?, John Roosevelt Hubbard
Until the early 20th century, transportation by land or water served as the primary methods of trade. As competition in the global marketplace increased in the 21st century air transportation emerged as a new and faster method of trade. Convinced of the economic benefits of air transportation, many policymakers of airport communities were quick to make plans for growth such as building infrastructure around the airport. This aerotropolis model often ignored the human capital development required for success.
Central to this study is this question: Is human capital development the missing component of the aerotropolis model economic development strategy? The ...

Continuous Top-K Monitoring On Document Streams, Leong Hou U, Junjie Zhang, Kyriakos Mouratidis, Ye Li
Research Collection School Of Information Systems
The efficient processing of document streams plays animportant role in many information filtering systems. Emerging applications,such as news update filtering and social network notifications, demandpresenting end-users with the most relevant content to their preferences. Inthis work, user preferences are indicated by a set of keywords. A centralserver monitors the document stream and continuously reports to each user thetop-k documents that are most relevant to her keywords. Our objective is tosupport large numbers of users and high stream rates, while refreshing thetop-k results almost instantaneously. Our solution abandons the traditionalfrequency-ordered indexing approach. Instead, it follows an identifier-orderingparadigm that suits better ...
