Evaluation Of Attitudes Toward Women’S Collegiate Athletics, Ceyda Mumcu, Gregory Greenhalgh 2017 University of New Haven

Evaluation Of Attitudes Toward Women’S Collegiate Athletics, Ceyda Mumcu, Gregory Greenhalgh

Sport Management Faculty Publications

While previous research has established a clear connection between attitudes and consumption intention for men’s spectator sports (Dwyer, 2013; Lim, Martin, & Kwak, 2010; Mahony & Howard, 1998; Mahony & Moorman, 1999; Mahony & Moorman, 2000), the attitude-consumption intention relationship has not been studied in the women’s collegiate sports context. The purpose of the current study was to investigate consumer’s attitudes towards women’s collegiate basketball, examine the impact of the components of attitude on consumers’ future consumption intentions, and assess the differences in attitude and consumption intention based on gender and past consumption behavior. Findings supported the Two-Component Model of attitude including cognitive and affective measures ...

Mapping How Culture In New York City And London Influences Respectively The Iconic Fashion Brands Of Kors And Mcqueen: A Case Study, Carol Brathwaite

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This thesis is an explanatory case study that applies geographic information systems (GIS) data, biographical data, and other secondary data. It includes mainly qualitative data collection and analysis; furthermore, the study examines quantitative data on the cultural events offered within each city. Overall, this case study adopts a theoretical perspective. The two individual cases (based on a multiple, holistic case-study design framework) of fashion culture in New York City and London, as per Michael Kors and Alexander McQueen respectively, represent ‘confirmatory cases or presumed replications of the same phenomenon’ (Yin 2014:59). Each describes the house’s fashion aesthetics as ...

Development Of The Referee Retention Scale, Lynn L. Ridinger, Kyungun R. Kim, Stacy Warner, Jacob K. Tingle 2017 Trinity University

Development Of The Referee Retention Scale, Lynn L. Ridinger, Kyungun R. Kim, Stacy Warner, Jacob K. Tingle

School of Business Faculty Research

Building upon the current sport officiating research, this study puts forth the Referee Retention Scale (RRS). Through a three-phase process, the researchers developed a valid and reliable scale to predict sport officials’ job satisfaction and intention to continue. The first phase consisted of instrument development, while the second phase included field testing of referees (n=253). After EFA and Rasch analysis, the resultant refined scale from phase 1 and 2 was then administered to 979 referees in phase 3. Phase 3 results using CFA indicated that the 7-factor, 28-item RRS was a valid and reliable tool for measuring and predicting ...


Maximum Entropy Approach To Interbank Lending: Towards A More Accurate Algorithm, Thach N. Nguyen, Olga Kosheleva, Vladik Kreinovich 2017 Banking University of Ho Chi Minh City

Maximum Entropy Approach To Interbank Lending: Towards A More Accurate Algorithm, Thach N. Nguyen, Olga Kosheleva, Vladik Kreinovich

Departmental Technical Reports (CS)

Banks loan money to each and borrow money from each other. To minimizing the risk caused by a possible default of one of the banks, a reasonable idea is to evenly spread the lending between different banks. A natural way to formalize this evenness requirement is to select the interbank amounts for which the entropy is the largest possible. The existing algorithms for solving the resulting constrained optimization problem provides only an approximate solution. In this paper, we propose a new algorithm that provides the exact solution to the maximum-entropy interbank lending problem.

Investigation Into The Formation Of Information Security Influence: Network Analysis Of An Emerging Organisation, Duy Dang-Pham, Siddhi Pittayachawan, Vince Bruno

Siddhi Pittayachawan

While prior research has been examining information security behaviours in mature environments with formal policies and practices, there is less attention paid to new or transforming environments that lack security controls. It is crucial to understand what factors affect the formation of an emerging information security environment, so that security managers can make use of the forming mechanisms to improve the security environment without relying too much on enforcement. This research adopts exponential random graph modeling to predict the occurrence of information security influence among 114 employees in a recently established construction organisation. Our empirical findings show that physically co-locating ...


Trading System Upgrades And Short-Sale Bans: Uncoupling The Effects Of Technology And Regulation, Bidisha Chakrabarty, Pamela Moulton, Roberto Pascual 2017 Saint Louis University

Trading System Upgrades And Short-Sale Bans: Uncoupling The Effects Of Technology And Regulation, Bidisha Chakrabarty, Pamela Moulton, Roberto Pascual

Pamela C. Moulton

We examine the market quality effects of technology upgrades juxtaposed with short-sale bans. Between 2011 and 2013, the Spanish Stock Exchange introduced a smart trading platform (SIBE-Smart) and colocation to facilitate high-speed trading, and they also imposed two short-sale bans. We find that the SIBE-Smart introduction, which occurs between the two short-sale bans, leads to reduced market quality. The introduction of colocation, which occurs during the second short-sale ban, improves market liquidity although it does not attract additional high-speed trading. Our results highlight how the effects of latency-reducing infrastructure improvements depend on, and differ across, different regulatory regimes.
