The Next Los Angeles: The Struggle For A Livable City, Regina Freer, Robert Gottlieb, Mark Vallianatos, Peter Dreier Dec 2015

The Next Los Angeles: The Struggle For A Livable City, Regina Freer, Robert Gottlieb, Mark Vallianatos, Peter Dreier

Mark Vallianatos

While most historians, journalists, and filmmakers have focused on Los Angeles as a bastion of corporate greed, business boosterism, political corruption, cheap labor, exploited immigrants, and unregulated sprawl, The Next Los Angeles tells a different story: that of the reformers and radicals who have struggled for alternative visions of social and economic justice. In a new preface, the authors reflect on the gathering momentum of L.A.'s progressive movement, including the 2005 landslide victory of Antonio Villaraigosa as mayor.

Accountability By Design In Literacy Professional Development, Catherine Rosemary, Patricia Grogan, Kathryn Kinnucan-Welsch

Kathryn A. Kinnucan-Welsch

This article identifies the principles of high-quality professional development based on research and explores how the principles were used to examine the Literacy Specialist Project (LSP) in Ohio. It discusses how each principle was related to literacy professional development using examples from the LSP, reports data from the project about teacher and student learning, and presents implications and additional questions related to accountability systems for professional development.

Occupational Hearing Loss In Agricultural Settings, Marilia Antunez Dec 2014

Occupational Hearing Loss In Agricultural Settings, Marilia Antunez

Marilia Y. Antunez, MLS, MA

Most of the materials on hearing loss due to noise in the agricultural industry are training and research-oriented materials in the form of brochures, manuals, and journal articles, published by academic presses, government associations, and professional organizations, respectively. Few books are entirely devoted to the topic of hearing loss in agricultural settings. Recently, many occupational and safety Web sites have been adding information and links to publications dealing with hearing loss in the agricultural industry. This Webliography represents the author's best efforts to briefly describe some authoritative Web sites with information targeted to individuals interested in farm occupational hearing ...

Tracking Customer Search To Price Discriminate, Bart Wilson, Carey Deck Aug 2014

Tracking Customer Search To Price Discriminate, Bart Wilson, Carey Deck

Bart J Wilson

The electronic technologies of the Internet make it possible for sellers to track potential customers and discriminate between the informed and uninformed. In this article, we report an experiment that investigates the market impact of firms tracking customers and offering discriminatory prices based on search history. We find that consumers, on average, face the same prices when sellers have the ability to track customers and price discriminate as when sellers post a single price for all buyers. However, informed buyers receive lower prices when sellers can detect buyer search, whereas uninformed buyers receive lower prices when firms cannot track customers.


Types Of Communication Triads Perceived By Young-Adult Stepchildren In Established Stepfamilies, Leslie Baxter, Dawn Braithwaite, L. Bryant Aug 2014

Types Of Communication Triads Perceived By Young-Adult Stepchildren In Established Stepfamilies, Leslie Baxter, Dawn Braithwaite, L. Bryant

Dawn O. Braithwaite

This study was an analysis of the kinds of residential parent-stepparent-stepchild triadic communication structures expressed in interviews with 50 college-aged children from established stepfamilies. In an interpretive analysis of the interview transcripts, four communication structures were identified. In the linked triad the stepchild relied on indirect communication with the stepparent through his or her residential parent. The outsider triad was characterized by the stepchild communicating primarily with the residential parent with limited awareness of interdependence with the stepparent. In the adult-coalition triad the stepchild perceived that the residential parent and stepparent had formed a coalition, leading to cautious and distrustful ...


“You're My Parent But You're Not”: Dialectical Tensions In Stepchildren's Perceptions About Communicating With The Nonresidential Parent, Dawn Braithwaite, Leslie Baxter Aug 2014

“You're My Parent But You're Not”: Dialectical Tensions In Stepchildren's Perceptions About Communicating With The Nonresidential Parent, Dawn Braithwaite, Leslie Baxter

Dawn O. Braithwaite

The nonresidential parent plays a role in the lives of stepchildren and in stepfamily households. The focus of the present study was on the interaction between the nonresidential parent and his/her child who resides as part of a stepfamily household. Grounded in relational dialectics theory, the researchers performed an interpretive analysis of 50 transcribed interviews with college-aged stepchildren. Stepchildren's perceptions of communication with the nonresidential parent were animated by two contradictions: parenting/nonparenting and openness/closedness. These two contradictions form a totality, interwoven with one another. The parenting/nonparenting contradiction reflected stepchildren's ambivalence over parenting attempts of ...

The Divorce Decree, Communication, And The Structuration Of Coparenting Relationships In Stepfamilies, Paul Schrodt, Leslie Baxter, M. Mcbride, Dawn Braithwaite, Mark Fine Aug 2014

The Divorce Decree, Communication, And The Structuration Of Coparenting Relationships In Stepfamilies, Paul Schrodt, Leslie Baxter, M. Mcbride, Dawn Braithwaite, Mark Fine

Dawn O. Braithwaite

sing Giddens's (1984) structuration theory, this study explored the communicative processes surrounding the divorce decree in coparenting relationships in stepfamilies. Participants included 21 adults who were coparenting children in stepfamilies who completed diary entries of all interactions with coparents over a 2-week period, and who completed follow-up interviews. Results revealed two structures of signification with respect to the divorce decree that enabled and constrained coparenting interactions. The first signification structure was one in which the decree was framed as a legal document, dictating the rights and responsibilities of parenting, especially with respect to child access and financial issues. The ...


Estimation Of Uninsurance Rate: Comparison Of Four Estimation Methods, Jackie Zhang, Renee Hotchkiss, Thomas Wan Jul 2014

Estimation Of Uninsurance Rate: Comparison Of Four Estimation Methods, Jackie Zhang, Renee Hotchkiss, Thomas Wan

Thomas T.H. Wan

Objective: Although high percentage of the uninsured is an important public policy issue, the discrepancies in both state and national estimates of the numbers of uninsured are reported. This study compares four advanced estimation methods for uninsurance, by using Florida Health Insurance Survey data as an example. Design: The four predictive models include decision tree, neural network, general logistic regression, and two-stage logistic regression. Risk factors to uninsurance are identified. Population: The study sample comes from the Florida Health Insurance Study data collected for the Florida Agency of Health Care Administration in 1999, representing the first large-scale study designed exclusively ...


Do Investors Herd Intraday In Australian Equities?, Julia Henker, Thomas Henker, Anna Mitsios Jul 2014

Do Investors Herd Intraday In Australian Equities?, Julia Henker, Thomas Henker, Anna Mitsios

Thomas Henker

Purpose – The purpose of this research is to consider whether market wide herding occurs intraday.

Design/methodology/approach – Using the 1995 Christie and Huang and the 2000 Chang et al. models, the paper tests whether market wide and industry sector herding occurs intraday in the Australian equities market.

Findings – Neither market wide nor industry sector herding occurs intraday.

Research limitations/implications – Both herding measures focus on one specific type of herding, herding evidenced by changes in the cross-sectional return distribution. Therefore the herding measures are ill suited to capture the effects of period specific abnormally high or low market returns ...

Jus Post Bellum: Just War Theory And The Principles Of Just Peace, Robert Williams, Dan Caldwell Mar 2014

Jus Post Bellum: Just War Theory And The Principles Of Just Peace, Robert Williams, Dan Caldwell

Dan Caldwell

What happens following a war is important to the moral judgments we make concerning warfare, just as the intentions going in and the means used are. There has, however, been inadequate attention paid to considerations of jus post bellum in the just war tradition. This essay seeks to contribute to recent efforts to develop jus post bellum principles by first noting some of the ways that jus ad bellum and jus in bello considerations serve to constrain what can legitimately be done after war. We argue, however, that the constraints grounded in traditional just war theory do not offer sufficient ...


The Southern Tree Of Liberty - The Democratic Movement In New South Wales Before 1856, Terry Irving Jan 2014

The Southern Tree Of Liberty - The Democratic Movement In New South Wales Before 1856, Terry Irving

Terence H Irving, Dr (Terry)

Responsible government began in New South Wales after two decades of radical democratic agitation. Radical intellectuals from England, Ireland, Scotland and Europe mobilized the working men and women of the colony to resist the aristocratic form of government proposed by pastoralists and city capitalists. There was violence on the streets and goldfields, and some notable electoral victories. As 'a great fear' gripped the local elites the British government forced them to accept a more liberal form of representative government in the belief that this would placate the democrats and keep the colony safe for British imperial needs.

Not Dea'd Yet: Gonzalez V. Oregon, Charles Baron Aug 2013

Not Dea'd Yet: Gonzalez V. Oregon, Charles Baron

Charles H. Baron

On January 17, the Oregon Death with Dignity Act beat back yet another attempt on its life. In Gonzales v. Oregon, the U.S. Supreme Court (by a six-to-three vote) affirmed decisions of two lower federal courts and made permanent a 2001 injunction against federal prosecution of physicians who prescribe narcotics under the terms of the act. Media coverage of the decision both exaggerated and underplayed the decision’s significance.

National Assessment Program : Civics And Citizenship Years 6 And 10 Report 2004, Suzanne Mellor, John Ainley, Julian Fraillon, Nicole Wernert

Nicole Wernert

The National Civics and Citizenship Sample Assessment was conducted in October 2004 with 10,712 Year 6 students from 318 schools and 9,536 Year 10 students from 249 schools. At both year levels, a sample of schools was selected with a probability proportional to size and then a sample of up to two classrooms was selected at random from those schools. The sample design and procedures, the high response rates (more than 90 percent) and the low levels of exclusions ensured that there was very little bias in the sample. The assessment was representative of the elements identified in ...


Calpain Inhibitor Mdl28170 Modulates Abeta Formation By Inhibiting The Formation Of Intermediate Abeta46 And Protecting Abeta From Degradation, Y Dong, J Tan, Mei-Zhen Cui, G Zhao, G Mao, N Singh, Xuemin Xu Jun 2013

Calpain Inhibitor Mdl28170 Modulates Abeta Formation By Inhibiting The Formation Of Intermediate Abeta46 And Protecting Abeta From Degradation, Y Dong, J Tan, Mei-Zhen Cui, G Zhao, G Mao, N Singh, Xuemin Xu

Mei-Zhen Cui

The observations that three major cleavages within the transmembrane domain of APP, namely, the gamma-cleavage, -cleavage, and the newly identified zeta-cleavage, are involved in the generation of secreted Abeta40 and Abeta42 prompted us to determine how the calpain inhibitor III MDL 28170 influences these three cleavages and Abeta formation. With the use of a cell culture system, our data demonstrate that 1) at either high concentrations, or at a low range of concentrations, at early time points, MDL 28170 inhibits the formation of secreted Abeta40 and Abeta42. However, this effect is due to inhibition of the intermediate Abeta46 generation by ...


Whole Body Edema And Mineralized Fat Necrosis In An Aquatic Caecilian, Typhlonectes Sp., J Sykes, Danielle Reel, George Henry, Michael Fry, S Smith Jun 2013

Whole Body Edema And Mineralized Fat Necrosis In An Aquatic Caecilian, Typhlonectes Sp., J Sykes, Danielle Reel, George Henry, Michael Fry, S Smith

George A Henry, DVM

A 13 year old male aquatic caecilian, Typhlonectes sp., presented with whole body swelling and a radiodense coelomic mass was identified radiographically. The mass was found to be free-floating during surgical exploration, was removed, and histologically determined to be mineralized fat necrosis. The animal did not recover from anesthesia and necropsy findings included excessive free coelomic fluid, a severely dilated venous structure, and a dermatopathy of unknown etiology. The animal's death was attributed to complications of anesthesia and circulatory compromise. Though no specific etiology was found, the whole body oedema was attributed to disruption of normal osmoregulation due to ...
