Utah And Sports Law, Adam Epstein Jan 2018

Utah And Sports Law, Adam Epstein

Adam Epstein

The state of Utah has addressed sports law issues across a broad spectrum, far more than just ski-related. Utah cases, coupled with sport-specific statutes, shows that even a state with a relatively small population might still have to deal with legal issues that intersect sport and law. While the advent of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City was an exciting time for the state and, in the end, became a huge international success, along with it came accusations of criminal misconduct to get it there in the first place. Indeed, misconduct involving the judging of pairs figure skating ...


Laughing Them Into Religion: A Comparison Of The Contexts, Causes, And Effects Of Jonathan Swift’S A Tale Of A Tub And C. S. Lewis’S The Screwtape Letters, Alan Neely May 2017

Laughing Them Into Religion: A Comparison Of The Contexts, Causes, And Effects Of Jonathan Swift’S A Tale Of A Tub And C. S. Lewis’S The Screwtape Letters, Alan Neely

English Theses

Jonathan Swift and C. S. Lewis had extraordinary similarities in their lives up to their respective writings of Tale of A Tub and The Screwtape Letters. Beyond the biographical parallels, there were great similarities in the religious, historical, and political contexts surrounding the two works, even though they were published 237 years apart. These facts have been ignored by scholars, yet more important than the similitude is what Swift and Lewis did differently in spite of it. These differences represent deliberate choices each author made and provide greater insights about them and these seminal works. Both of these brilliant men ...


Sleep As An Occupation In College Students: A Mixed Method Study, Charlotte Sally, Savannah Hancock, Rhianna Wallace, Jacqueline Bloom May 2017

Sleep As An Occupation In College Students: A Mixed Method Study, Charlotte Sally, Savannah Hancock, Rhianna Wallace, Jacqueline Bloom

Master's Theses and Capstone Projects

Sleep is an emerging area of research and practice for occupational therapists. The purpose of this study was to identify and investigate how college students’ cognitive perceptions and beliefs about sleep affect their quality of sleep. Four college students participated in qualitative interviews investigating their sleep beliefs and attitudes. The students also completed a two-week daily sleep diary to report their sleep beliefs, attitudes, and daily living patterns. Four emerging themes were identified from the interviews: beliefs about sleep patterns related to temporal structure of sleep, stress, daytime performance associated with sleep, and conflicting beliefs about sleep. Daily sleep diaries ...


Traipsing The Old Stomping Grounds: The First Three Stories Of A Novel-In-Stories With A Craft Essay, Jennifer R. Jones May 2017

Traipsing The Old Stomping Grounds: The First Three Stories Of A Novel-In-Stories With A Craft Essay, Jennifer R. Jones

Masters Theses and Doctoral Dissertations

Traipsing the Old Stomping Grounds is a novel-in-stories about the quest for love and belonging in the life of Emily, a twenty-something year-old who depends on relationships with boys/men as her only resource for fulfillment of these desires. Based on real life events but with fictionalized characters and places, each story in the novel explores a relationship Emily forges while living on her own in small town Oklahoma during the 1980s, where Mackie's, a fast food restaurant, and the people who work there become the center of her life. My craft essay explores the methods of imposing plot ...


Un-Othering The Albino: How Popular Communication Constructs Albinism Identity, Niya P. Miller May 2017

Un-Othering The Albino: How Popular Communication Constructs Albinism Identity, Niya P. Miller

Dissertations

This study examines the rhetoric of whiteness framing albinism in the general public. It is argued that the albinic body is a unique space from which the typical coding of race, and the very act of difference making can be deconstructed. This analysis brings into focus observations about how whiteness operates rhetorically and ideologically in popular discourse to create negative verbal and visual trope of albinism, called the albino trope. Through the albino trope, White privilege maintains its invisible rhetorical silence. By examining the complexities that arise when albinism is communicated about in the general public, we gain more insight ...

The Arts Of Amnesia: The Case For Audio Drama, Part Two, Neil Verma Apr 2017

The Arts Of Amnesia: The Case For Audio Drama, Part Two, Neil Verma

RadioDoc Review

This article examines what the relationship between audio drama and radio drama might illuminate about both forms. Drawing on some 40 podcasts and other audio forms that take a serial structure, I explore the rise of audio drama podcasts since 2015 and situate them in both a more recent historical context since the late 1990s and in a broader history stretching back to the first Golden Age of radio. By listening closely to key works on Serendipity, Homecoming and other podcasts, I argue that contemporary audio has profound potential to change both how we listen and how we relate to ...


Discrimination And Association, Caleb C. Wolanek Apr 2017

Discrimination And Association, Caleb C. Wolanek

Concordia Law Review

In September 2016, the United States Commission on Civil Rights issued a report entitled Peaceful Coexistence: Reconciling Nondiscrimination Principles with Civil Liberties. In that report, the Commission argued that the law permits—and justice requires—that decision-makers prioritize nondiscrimination over civil liberties like freedom of religion and freedom of association. For example, the report endorsed the view that religious liberty should be limited as much as possible to freedom of belief; conduct “should conform to law.” This is because religion is discriminatory and can be used as a front for discriminatory activities. Nondiscrimination policies, in contrast, “are of preeminent importance ...


Unsafe Harbor: The European Union's Demand For Heightened Data Privacy Standards In Schrems V. Irish Data Protection Commissioner, Christina Lam Apr 2017

Unsafe Harbor: The European Union's Demand For Heightened Data Privacy Standards In Schrems V. Irish Data Protection Commissioner, Christina Lam

Boston College International and Comparative Law Review

In 1995, the European Union adopted the Data Protection Directive to govern the processing, use, and exchange of personal data. The United States refused to enact similar legislation, consequently jeopardizing ongoing and future data transfers with the European Union. To prevent economic catastrophe, the United States negotiated with the European Union to reach the Safe Harbor Agreement and, on July 26, 2000, the European Commission formally recognized the agreement as compliant with the Data Protection Directive in its Safe Harbor Decision. In 2013, U.S. data protection standards were once again placed under the microscope when Edward Snowden leaked information ...

What Causes Cost Overruns On Building Projects? - An Overview., Tony Cunningham Apr 2017

What Causes Cost Overruns On Building Projects? - An Overview., Tony Cunningham

Other Resources

Cost overruns are commonplace during the construction phase of building projects. This study investigates common reasons why cost overruns happen on building projects. It examines how the client’s priorities and decisions regarding the project duration and quality expectations can undermine cost certainty. The actions of the client’s consultants, particularly those of the architect / employer’s representative, are identified as key factors in causing or preventing cost overruns. The building process, itself, is uncertain, particularly in relation to ground conditions. Large, complex and innovative construction projects containing a substantial element of specialist work are identified as ones which are ...

Debt Contagion In The Europe: A Panel-Vector Autoregressive (Var) Analysis, Sharmila K. King, Florence Bouvet, Ryan Brady Apr 2017

Debt Contagion In The Europe: A Panel-Vector Autoregressive (Var) Analysis, Sharmila K. King, Florence Bouvet, Ryan Brady

Sharmila K. King

The European sovereign-debt crisis began in Greece when the government announced in December, 2009, that its debt reached 121% of GDP (or 300 billion euros) and its 2009 budget deficit was 12.7% of GDP, four times the level allowed by the Maastricht Treaty. The Greek crisis soon spread to other Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) countries, notably Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Italy. Using quarterly data for the 2000–2011 period, we implement a panel-vector autoregressive (PVAR) model for 11 EMU countries to examine the extent to which a rise in a country’s bond-yield spread or debt-to-GDP ratio affects ...


Benefit Corporations And Public Markets: First Experiments And Next Steps, Brett H. Mcdonnell Apr 2017

Benefit Corporations And Public Markets: First Experiments And Next Steps, Brett H. Mcdonnell

Seattle University Law Review

Part I begins by considering the leading benefits and costs for a benefit corporation that chooses to go public. It starts there both to begin gaining an understanding of the challenges public companies will face and also to consider whether going public is likely to actually be an attractive option at all for some set of social enterprises. Some of the benefits and costs of going public are the same for benefit corporations as for ordinary corporations—access to new sources of capital and new accountability mechanisms are benefits, but legal compliance and pressures from shareholders to show quick results ...


Continuity And Change In The Operational Dynamics Of The Islamic State, James L. Regens, Nick Mould Apr 2017

Continuity And Change In The Operational Dynamics Of The Islamic State, James L. Regens, Nick Mould

Journal of Strategic Security

In this article we estimate the influence of leadership changes on the operational dynamics associated with terrorist attacks conducted by the Islamic State and its predecessors. Because the focus of our research is empirical, the study uses data for 2,131 successful attacks between October 2002 and December 2014 to examine differentials in operational tempo, attack severity, primary tactics employed, and principal targets. The data are aggregated on a monthly basis to estimate the probabilities associated with specific attack sequences in terms of the following primary tactics: (1) firearms, (2) explosives, (3) hostage-taking/kidnapping, and (4) attacks involving combinations of ...


Ultramontane Piety And Catholic Sociability: The Prescription And Practice Of Identity In Acadian Patriotic Songs, Jeanette Gallant Mar 2017

Ultramontane Piety And Catholic Sociability: The Prescription And Practice Of Identity In Acadian Patriotic Songs, Jeanette Gallant

Yale Journal of Music & Religion

The emergence of ultramontane thought during the Catholic Enlightenment in eighteenth-century France had wide-reaching effects in Catholic communities beyond Europe. One such community was a francophone colonial minority population in Atlantic Canada called the Acadians who, as Canada became a nation-state in the second half of the nineteenth century, came under the control of ultramontane nationalists working to protect Acadian cultural rights from the English-speaking Protestant majority. This paper looks at the role that music played in the transmission of ultramontane thought with these new socio-political circumstances. The Acadians, exiled for seven years during Canadian colonization, were resettled in disparate ...


Homemaker As Citizen - Iowa Child Welfare Research Station, Agnes Crain Mar 2017

Homemaker As Citizen - Iowa Child Welfare Research Station, Agnes Crain

The Iowa Homemaker

Of approximately one million children in Iowa one-tenth are constitutionally, mentally or physically defective and the remaining nine hundred thousand are the so-called "normal group". But, are any of this latter group really normal? If we use as our standards the best that Iowa can produce, is each child developing according to his maximum ability? Are special mental and physical defects being removed? What are the methods used to develop Iowa's children? How may we conserve the good qualities of each child and improve them?

The Iowa Homemaker

Do you love to look at pretty dishes, linen, and silver? I do! Just to see a quaint Royal Doulton tea pot gives me a thrill and why shouldn't it? It is instinctive ·for a woman to enjoy pretty table appointments. And it is often true that a woman expresses her personality more exactly in the selection of her linen, silver, and dishes than in any other of her house furnishings.
