Spread Decomposition With Common Spread Components, Thomas Henker

Design/methodology/approach – The paper extends a commonly used trade indicator spread decomposition model to include a component common to all stocks of a specialist firm and a market wide component common to all stocks.

Findings – Strong evidence is found that specialists consider this common factor cost component when they set bid and ask quotes. Some specialist firms also take the next logical step and specifically manage their firm wide stock inventories. The common factor is ...

Assessing Student Learning Through Effective Academic & Professional Partnerships: The Why, The How, And The Results, Laurence Minsky

Laurence Minsky

Objective, external feedback can provide the backup academic departments need to “drive” programmatic and institutional improvements. This session will offer successful approaches for recruiting independent professionals and working with them to develop assessment rubrics to objectively measure student learning on programmatic and institutional levels. At the end of the session, participants will be able to (1) identify potential assessors for curriculum and/or program; (2) develop a strategy for identifying and recruiting independent assessors and; (3) generate talking points with instructions to communicate expectations and assessment methods to get usable, valid results and data.

Ontology-Based Information Extraction For Analyzing It Services, Amit Deokar, Sagnika Sen 2009 Dakota State University

Ontology-Based Information Extraction For Analyzing It Services, Amit Deokar, Sagnika Sen

Amit Deokar

Service Level Agreements (SLA) for multi-service Information Technology (IT) outsourcing contracts contain vast amounts of textual information. The SLAs provide details about a specific service, Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to measure its performance; as well as process elements, such as activities, events, and resources that are integral in achieving performance goals. However, KPIs and the process elements may be interrelated. The knowledge of such interrelationships is often tacitly present in the SLAs. The aim of our research is to extract this hidden information from IT service contracts and analyze them to empower customers of IT services to make better performance ...

Indianizing Hollywood: The Debate Over Bollywood's Copyright Infringement, Hariqbal Basi 2009 University of California - Los Angeles

Indianizing Hollywood: The Debate Over Bollywood's Copyright Infringement, Hariqbal Basi

Hariqbal Basi

For decades, the mainstream Indian film industry, known as Bollywood, has remade copyrighted Hollywood films for the Indian audience without legal repercussions. This practice has gone unnoticed by Hollywood until recently, and accusations have since been brought against Indian filmmakers for copyright infringement. This note provides an in depth analysis of why these potentially infringing films have only become the subject of litigation over the last two years, cultural arguments advanced by Indian filmmakers for why their remakes should constitute original, and not infringing, works, and what the effects of litigation have been. As the two industries become increasingly intertwined ...


Are We There Yet? An Assessment Of Research Design And Construct Measurement Practices In Entrepreneurship Research, T. Crook, Christopher Shook, M. Morris, Timothy Madden 2009 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Are We There Yet? An Assessment Of Research Design And Construct Measurement Practices In Entrepreneurship Research, T. Crook, Christopher Shook, M. Morris, Timothy Madden

T. Russell Crook

Research design is a central element of empirical research, and thus, an important consideration for entrepreneurship researchers and anyone interested in entrepreneurship-related research findings. Yet, many years have past since the last thorough review of research design and construct measurement practices. Thus, it is unknown whether there is a gap between what is currently being done versus what needs to be done. In this article, authors use a two-study approach involving a content analysis of published empirical research and a survey of experts within the field to assess the current state of practices. Their findings indicate that, in general, research ...
