Recent Decline Of Lowland Populations Of The Western Gray Squirrel In The Los Angeles Area Of Southern California, Daniel S. Cooper, Alan Muchlinski Jul 2105

Recent Decline Of Lowland Populations Of The Western Gray Squirrel In The Los Angeles Area Of Southern California, Daniel S. Cooper, Alan Muchlinski

Bulletin of the Southern California Academy of Sciences

We provide an overview of the distribution of lowland and otherwise isolated populations of the western gray squirrel (Sciurus griseus) in the Los Angeles area of southern California, an area that has experienced a recent and ongoing invasion by the non-native eastern fox squirrel (Sciurus niger), an urban-adapted species introduced a century ago. Away from its strongholds in the western Santa Monica Mountains, San Gabriel Mountains, and Santa Ana Mountains, the western gray squirrel is resident locally in both the Santa Susana and the Verdugo Mountains, in Griffith Park, in low hills at the eastern periphery of the San Gabriel ...


The Politics Of Fertility: Population And Pronatalism In Ladakh, Jennifer Aengst Jul 2103

The Politics Of Fertility: Population And Pronatalism In Ladakh, Jennifer Aengst

HIMALAYA, the Journal of the Association for Nepal and Himalayan Studies

In India’s northwestern region of Ladakh, the linkage between reproduction, politics, and fertility is both complicated and contested, evident in increasing population discourses and the re-emergence of a Buddhist pronatalist movement. This paper examines the impacts of population discourses and pronatalism on women’s reproductive decision-making, as well as on the delivery of healthcare throughout Ladakh. Population discourses currently circulating produce two reproductive subjects—the “hyper-fertile Muslim woman” and the “vulnerable Buddhist”—both of which have been central in revitalizing Buddhist pronatalism. Data collected through a hospital-based survey and interviews shows that fertility behavior is shaped by religious interpretations ...


Entrepreneurial Opportunity As Expressed In Actions (Interactive Paper), Rok Stritar, Mateja Drnovšek Jun 2102

Entrepreneurial Opportunity As Expressed In Actions (Interactive Paper), Rok Stritar, Mateja Drnovšek

Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research

Dimov (2010) suggested that the notion of entrepreneurial opportunity could be better adapted to entrepreneurship reality by focusing on the substance of entrepreneurial behavior, that is, observing entrepreneurs act as they seize opportunities. This study focuses on early techniques and actions of novice entrepreneurs that over time turned out to be key players. By trying to answer “How do novice entrepreneurs that identified an opportunity in an emerging industry seize and develop the opportunity?” we seek to add to current knowledge on what techniques and actions entrepreneurs employ in opportunity recognition and development process by studying novice entrepreneurs in emerging ...


Gender Preferences For Economic, Social, And Environmental Value Creation Goals (Interactive Paper), Amanda Elam, Diana Hechavarria, Amy E. Ingram, Siri Terjesen, Rachida Justo Jun 2102

Gender Preferences For Economic, Social, And Environmental Value Creation Goals (Interactive Paper), Amanda Elam, Diana Hechavarria, Amy E. Ingram, Siri Terjesen, Rachida Justo

Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research

Scholars have argued for a more holistic view of entrepreneurial value creation and motivations as empirical findings consistently suggest that some entrepreneurs exhibit strong non-monetary values (Douglas and Shepherd, 2000; Filley and Aldag, 1978; Gorgievski, Ascalon and Stephan, 2010; Low and MacMillan, 1988). We explore motives for economic, social, and environmental value creation goals from a gender perspective. The economic view of entrepreneurship assumes the main incentive is the opportunity to earn rents (Shane and Venkataraman, 2000). However, recently social value and environmental value creation been recognized as an essential feature of entrepreneurship by scholars (Austin et al., 2006; Zahra ...

Prosecuting Rape Victims While Rapists Run Free: The Consequences Of Police Failure To Investigate Sex Crimes In Britain And The United States, Lisa Avalos Jan 2019

Prosecuting Rape Victims While Rapists Run Free: The Consequences Of Police Failure To Investigate Sex Crimes In Britain And The United States, Lisa Avalos

Michigan Journal of Gender and Law

Imagine that a close friend is raped, and you encourage her to report it to the police. At first, she thinks that the police are taking her report seriously, but the investigation does not seem to move forward. The next thing she knows, they accuse her of lying and ultimately file charges against her. You and your friend are in shock; this outcome never entered your minds. This nightmare may seem inconceivable, but it has in fact occurred repeatedly in both the United States and Britain—countries that are typically lauded for their high levels of gender equality. In Britain ...

Access To Taxicabs For Unbanked Households: An Exploratory Analysis In New York City, David A. King, Juan Francisco Saldarriaga Mar 2017

Access To Taxicabs For Unbanked Households: An Exploratory Analysis In New York City, David A. King, Juan Francisco Saldarriaga

Journal of Public Transportation

Taxicabs are critical complements to public transit systems. In New York City, ubiquitous yellow cabs are as iconic as the city’s subway system, and the city recently added green taxicabs to improve taxi service in areas outside of the Central Business Districts and airports. In this paper, we used multiple datasets to explore taxicab fare payments by neighborhood and examine how paid taxicab fares are associated with use of conventional banking services. There are clear spatial dimensions of the propensity of riders to pay cash, and we found that both immigrant status and being “unbanked” are strong predictors of ...


A Framework For Measuring The Spatial Equity In The Distribution Of Public Transportation Benefits, Seyyed Amir Hosein Mortazavi, Meisam Akbarzadeh Mar 2017

A Framework For Measuring The Spatial Equity In The Distribution Of Public Transportation Benefits, Seyyed Amir Hosein Mortazavi, Meisam Akbarzadeh

Journal of Public Transportation

This paper proposes that an equitable transit system requires that the geographical distribution of transit service benefits conform to the geographical distribution of the citizens with the greatest need for public transportation. This is the essence of vertical equity. This study calculated “connectivity power,” which reflects public transit service quality in each traffic analysis zone (TAZ) in a city to indicate the amount of benefit that TAZ is receiving from the transit system. The number of carless citizens in each TAZ was also calculated as an index of need to the public transit services in that area. Conformity of need ...


Identifying Key Factors Of Rail Transit Service Quality: An Empirical Analysis For Istanbul, Erkan Isikli, Nezir Aydin, Erkan Celik, Alev Taskin Gumus Mar 2017

Identifying Key Factors Of Rail Transit Service Quality: An Empirical Analysis For Istanbul, Erkan Isikli, Nezir Aydin, Erkan Celik, Alev Taskin Gumus

Journal of Public Transportation

Providing a high quality of service in public transportation is essential to reduce dissatisfactions stemming from traffic congestion and noise. Public transport providers need to find ways to dilute the effects of immoderate use of private cars in big cities while maintaining a sufficient level of customer satisfaction. This study aimed to identify the key service quality (SQ) factors that drive passenger satisfaction in Istanbul’s rail transit (RT) system using data obtained from an extensive survey conducted by the Istanbul Public Transportation Co. A total of 11,116 passengers who used rail transport from May 15–June 3, 2012 ...


A New Market Segmentation Approach: Evidence From Two Canadian Cities, Dea Van Lierop, Ahmed El-Geneidy Mar 2017

A New Market Segmentation Approach: Evidence From Two Canadian Cities, Dea Van Lierop, Ahmed El-Geneidy

Journal of Public Transportation

Traditionally, transit market research has categorized passengers into two distinct groups: captive riders and choice riders. Market analyses that depend on such broad categories are likely to overlook important details about the needs and desires of their customer base. This study attempts to better understand the complexities of the different groups who take transit by using information from five years of customer satisfaction questionnaires collected by two Canadian transit providers. Employing a series of clustering techniques, the analysis reveals that nine market segments are present across different modes in both transit agencies. Three different overarching groups of transit users are ...


Improving Outcomes For At-Risk Prekindergarten And Kindergarten Students With A Digital Learning Resource, K.P. Thai Ph.D., Leslie Ponciano Ph.D. Jan 2017

Improving Outcomes For At-Risk Prekindergarten And Kindergarten Students With A Digital Learning Resource, K.P. Thai Ph.D., Leslie Ponciano Ph.D.

Journal of Applied Research on Children: Informing Policy for Children at Risk

Objective: A two-year longitudinal study examined the academic impact of the integration of ABCmouse Early Learning Academy, an online supplemental digital early learning resource, into prekindergarten and kindergarten.

Design and Participants: With a naturalistic design, ABCmouse was provided to all 230 prekindergarten students enrolled in a district-run program for students identified as at risk for school failure. The following year, the prekindergarten sample entered kindergarten and were provided with ABCmouse along with their kindergarten peers (N = 571) within a quasi-experimental design. Half of the schools received regular access to the full ABCmouse curriculum for the entire school year, and half ...
