Was Trump’S Deployment Of Federal Officers To Portland, Oregon And Other Cities During The Summer Of 2020 Legal And Constitutional?, Celina Tebor May 2021

Was Trump’S Deployment Of Federal Officers To Portland, Oregon And Other Cities During The Summer Of 2020 Legal And Constitutional?, Celina Tebor

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Cities across the United States erupted in protest during the summer of 2020 after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. In response to these protests, President Donald Trump deployed federal troops to multiple cities, including Portland, Oregon. The legal basis for sending the troops was to protect federal property, and relied upon the powers of the Department of Homeland Security and an executive order from the summer. However, President Trump’s rhetoric suggests that the purpose of sending the troops was to quell the protests. Politicians, protestors, and lawsuits have alleged that Trump’s actions ...


Applicant Faking On Personality Tests: Good Or Bad And Why Should We Care?, Robert P. Tett, Daniel V. Simonet May 2021

Applicant Faking On Personality Tests: Good Or Bad And Why Should We Care?, Robert P. Tett, Daniel V. Simonet

Personnel Assessment and Decisions

The unitarian understanding of construct validity holds that deliberate response distortion in completing self-report personality tests (i.e., faking) threatens trait-based inferences drawn from test scores. This “faking-is-bad” (FIB) perspective is being challenged by an emerging “faking-is-good” (FIG) position that condones or favors faking and its underlying attributes (e.g., social skill, ATIC) to the degree they contribute to predictor–criterion correlations and are job relevant. Based on the unitarian model of validity and relevant empirical evidence, we argue the FIG perspective is psychometrically flawed and counterproductive to personality-based selection targeting trait-based fit. Carrying forward both positions leads to variously ...


Neuroliberalism And Beyond, Neve Durrwachter May 2021

Neuroliberalism And Beyond, Neve Durrwachter

Anthropology Honors Papers

This paper evaluates the healthy lifestyle promotion corporation known as Blue Zones by focusing on their approach to behavioral modification. The analysis relies on popular theories of governmentality such as neoliberalism, libertarian paternalism, and neuroliberalism that seek to explain how personal forms of knowledge intersect with mechanisms of social control to influence the creation of policy. Through a content-analysis of the organization’s foundational text, I argue that Blue Zones is best understood as a form of neuroliberalism because it grants individuals the autonomy to be their own choice architects.

Adat Institutions In Aceh Government: A Constitutional Perspective, Yunani Abiyoso, Ali Abdillah, Ryan Muthiara Wasti, Ghurnarsa Sujatnika, Mustafa Fakhri

Journal of Islamic Law Studies

The existence of adat (customary law) in Indonesia becomes a source of value for the survival of the nation. Each region in Indonesia has different adat that can be used as a reference for the form of governmental system in Indonesia. The 1945 Constitution has recognized the existence of adat government that consisting of various forms of adat that have been adopted long before the 1945 Constitution existed. The existence of adat cannot be separated from national and Islamic values. This research was conducted to find out form of adat institution in Aceh and how the integration of such adat ...


"Neither Believer Nor Infidel" Dialogic Portraits Of Agnostic And Pragmatic Methodologies In Moby-Dick And Clarel, Matthias Overos May 2021

"Neither Believer Nor Infidel" Dialogic Portraits Of Agnostic And Pragmatic Methodologies In Moby-Dick And Clarel, Matthias Overos

Masters Theses and Doctoral Dissertations

Much scholarship is dedicated to Melville’s religious themes, and other scholarship carefully analyzes the innovative formal techniques used by Melville, such as biblical allusion, digressive essays, and philosophical musings imbedded in fiction. However, religious analysis often turns to biographical interpretations of Melville’s own beliefs, and formal analysis tends to highlight Melville’s idiosyncrasies rather than determine their function. This thesis uses the Bakhtinian concepts of dialogism and polyphony to show that Melville’s poetic techniques create open texts, allowing readers to freely engage with multiple religious views that are equally valid, though not equally beneficial. Anticipating the methodologies ...


“Did Emmett Till Die In Vain? Organized Labor Says No!”: The United Packinghouse Workers And Civil Rights Unionism In The Mid-1950s, Matthew Nichter May 2021

“Did Emmett Till Die In Vain? Organized Labor Says No!”: The United Packinghouse Workers And Civil Rights Unionism In The Mid-1950s, Matthew Nichter

Faculty Publications

Emmett Till’s mangled face is seared into our collective memory, a tragic epitome of the brutal violence that upheld white supremacy in the Jim Crow South. But Till's murder was more than just a tragedy: it also inspired an outpouring of determined protest, in which labor unions played a prominent role. The United Packinghouse Workers of America (UPWA) campaigned energetically on behalf of Emmett Till, from the stockyards of Chicago to the sugar refineries of Louisiana. Packinghouse workers petitioned, marched, and rallied to demand justice; the UPWA organized the first mass meeting addressed by Till’s mother, Mamie ...


How A Physician’S Religious Beliefs Frame An End-Of-Life Prognosis For A Terminally Ill Patient, Tyler Hershenhouse Apr 2021

How A Physician’S Religious Beliefs Frame An End-Of-Life Prognosis For A Terminally Ill Patient, Tyler Hershenhouse

Undergraduate Research and Engagement Symposium

The relationship between a physician’s religious beliefs and how they frame an end-of-life prognosis for a terminally ill patient is poorly understood. Most physicians strive to provide the best patient centered care while attempting to respect the patient’s religious beliefs during final moments of life. This study seeks to uncover if a physician’s religious beliefs have any influence on the prognosis provided to a terminally ill patient. Data collected suggests physicians who identify as Atheist responded with no significant correlation to hastening or prolonging treatment for a terminally ill patient, but there are indications to a higher ...

Sidney J. Catts And The Democratic Primary Of 1920, Warren A. Jennings Apr 2021

Sidney J. Catts And The Democratic Primary Of 1920, Warren A. Jennings

Florida Historical Quarterly

In 1920 Florida stood on the threshold of her “great boom;” economic optimism prevailed. However, to many people within the state one obstacle stood in the way of bountiful prosperity - “Cattsism,” a term of derision applied to the political principles and campaign tactics of Sidney J. Catts, the governor of the state. Only four years before he had risen from obscurity to notoriety. A more disruptive and divisive personality has seldom appeared on the political scene of any state. There was no middle ground in the opinions of the politicians or the public about this political parvenu; he was either ...


The Woman Suffrage Movement In Florida, A. Elizabeth Taylor Apr 2021

The Woman Suffrage Movement In Florida, A. Elizabeth Taylor

Florida Historical Quarterly

Early in the nineteenth century many persons began feeling acute dissatisfaction with the status of American women. Because of this sentiment they wrote, spoke, and organized for the purpose of changing this status. By the latter part of the century their efforts were producing results. In ever increasing numbers women were attending institutions of higher learning. They were engaging in many professional and business activities. In the political realm also their status was improving, and a few states were even allowing them to vote.


Macomb's Mission To The Seminoles: John T. Sprague's Journal, Frank F. White, Jr. Apr 2021

Macomb's Mission To The Seminoles: John T. Sprague's Journal, Frank F. White, Jr.

Florida Historical Quarterly

On March 22, 1839, Major General Alexander Macomb left Washington to go to Florida in an unsuccessful attempt to end the expensive and futile war which had already lasted four years against the Seminole Indians. On his staff, accompanying him as aid-de-camp, was Lieutenant John T. Sprague of the 8th Infantry, who maintained the official diary of the expedition. This journal which has not been published in its entirety previously, contains the chronicle of the great council which assembled in May of that year to try to establish peace once more. Although General Macomb’s peace mission failed, Lieutenant Sprague ...


St. Paul’S Church In Quincy, Florida, During The Territorial Period, Edward B. Gearhart Apr 2021

St. Paul’S Church In Quincy, Florida, During The Territorial Period, Edward B. Gearhart

Florida Historical Quarterly

The development and the growth of the Episcopal Church in Quincy, Florida, and in all Florida, has been best related through the stories of the church leaders whether they were the parish rectors or, in all too few cases, able laymen. For a clear understanding of the life of St. Paul’s Church in Quincy during territorial Florida, three periods must be kept in mind. First, there was the long period of development into a congregation; second, there was the founding of the church and its growth under a rector in residence; last, and most important, were the situations that ...

Examining Factors Of K-12 Christian School Growth: A Case Study, Jared B. Johnston Apr 2021

Examining Factors Of K-12 Christian School Growth: A Case Study, Jared B. Johnston

Doctor of Education (Ed.D)

The Christian education movement has suffered in recent decades, as hundreds of schools have closed. Many more schools are losing students and are not experiencing growth. The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore how three mid-size Christian schools were showing positive student enrollment growth. The collective case study methodology was used to examine the phenomenon in three private Christian schools. During the course of the study, three administrators and 15 parents from three private Christian schools were interviewed regarding the topic of Christian school growth. The results of the study showed that schools who had a biblical worldview ...


We Will Outlive Them: Antisemitism In Modern America, Ethan Shipp Apr 2021

We Will Outlive Them: Antisemitism In Modern America, Ethan Shipp

Student Writing

Antisemitism is a growing and immediate threat to Jewish people across America. While the nature of Antisemitism is much the same as it has ever been, there is a clear disconnect between the ideology and beliefs of antisemites and reality. Understanding the motivations behind antisemitism is critical to understanding how to appropriately address antisemitism itself. Furthermore, recognizing that antisemitism is rooted in emotion instead of logic is key to limiting engagement with antisemites and instead focusing on fostering a sense of solidarity among oppressed and marginalized groups.

A Literary Analysis Of The Origin Of Human Embryonic Stem Cells, Its Advancements, Philosophical, Ethical, Sociocultural, And Political Aspects; An Investigation Of The Underlying Attributes That Affect One’S Views On Hesc Research To Resolve Turkey And Brazil’S Hesc Policy, Religious, And Cultural Conflicts, Haleema Shamsuddin Apr 2021

A Literary Analysis Of The Origin Of Human Embryonic Stem Cells, Its Advancements, Philosophical, Ethical, Sociocultural, And Political Aspects; An Investigation Of The Underlying Attributes That Affect One’S Views On Hesc Research To Resolve Turkey And Brazil’S Hesc Policy, Religious, And Cultural Conflicts, Haleema Shamsuddin

Honors Theses

Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) are cells derived from 5-day human embryos and are self-renewing cell lines that change into any type of cell in the body, a trait called pluripotency. hESCs have almost unlimited clinical and medical research potential. Despite the great therapeutic promise of hESC research, it comes with a controversial ethical debate due to its involvement with the destruction of the human embryo. The central argument revolves around the question of whether or not these human embryos should be ascribed equal moral status to fully developed humans. This thesis aims to analyze the origin and advancements of ...


The Power To Define A People: Race And Immigration In Argentine National Identity, Willow Fortunoff Apr 2021

The Power To Define A People: Race And Immigration In Argentine National Identity, Willow Fortunoff

Political Science Honors Projects

Argentina is known as a “country of immigrants” yet simultaneously grapples with entrenched xenophobia. My research untangles this apparent contradiction by revealing how both facets of national identity are rooted in racialized colonial ideology. Following independence in 1816, Argentine elites used immigration policies to justify the exploitation of Afro-descendant and Indigenous communities and subsequent European repopulation. Elites converted non-Europeans into cultural “foreigners” by erasing them from the country’s national identity, and I use foreign policy frameworks to demonstrate how leaders have consistently wielded immigration as a political tool to further their own objectives. I argue that the lack of ...

Carpetbag Imperialism In Florida, 1862-1868 Part Ii, George Winston Smith Mar 2021

Carpetbag Imperialism In Florida, 1862-1868 Part Ii, George Winston Smith

Florida Historical Quarterly

Before the Florida Direct Tax Commissioners couId hope to make extensive tax assessments and sales of “rebel”property in Florida, further military operations were essential in the Jacksonville area. Nevertheless, Fernandina and St. Augustine already were in possession of the Union forces, and Stickney could see before him a limited entree to southern wealth. Before he made a leisurely journey southward at the end of 1862, he quietly began to make preparations.
