Imprisoning Rationalities, Eileen Baldry, David Brown, Mark Brown, Chris Cunneen, Melanie Schwartz, Alex Steel Dec 2015

Imprisoning Rationalities, Eileen Baldry, David Brown, Mark Brown, Chris Cunneen, Melanie Schwartz, Alex Steel

David C. Brown

Imprisonment is a growth industry in Australia. Over the past 30-40 years all state and territory jurisdictions have registered massive rises in both the absolute numbers of those imprisoned and the per capita use of imprisonment as a tool of punishment and control. Yet over this period there has been surprisingly little criminological attention to the national picture of imprisonment in Australia and to understanding jurisdictional variation, change and continuity in broader theoretical terms. This article reports initial findings from the Australian Prisons Project, a multi-investigator Australian Research Council funded project intended to trace penal developments in Australia since about ...


Criminal Laws: Materials And Commentary On Criminal Law And Process In Nsw, Alex Steel, David Brown, David Farrier, Sandra Egger, Luke Mcnamara, Michael Grewcock, Donna Spears Dec 2015

Criminal Laws: Materials And Commentary On Criminal Law And Process In Nsw, Alex Steel, David Brown, David Farrier, Sandra Egger, Luke Mcnamara, Michael Grewcock, Donna Spears

David C. Brown

The success of Criminal Laws lies both in its distinctive features and in its appeal to a range of readerships. As one review put it, it is simultaneously a “textbook, casebook, handbook and reference work”. As such it is ideal for criminal law and criminal justice courses as a teaching text, combining as it does primary sources with extensive critical commentary and a contextual perspective. It is likewise indispensable to practitioners for its detailed coverage of substantive law and its extensive references and inter-disciplinary approach make it a first point of call for researchers from all disciplines. This fifth edition ...


Matevosyan Nr. Schizophrenia And Stein–Leventhal Syndrome: Comorbidity Features Jun 2015

Matevosyan Nr. Schizophrenia And Stein–Leventhal Syndrome: Comorbidity Features

Alquiler Coches

Objective: To explore shared pathogenesis between schizophrenia and polycistic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Methods: Ninety-six studies of schizophrenia and PCOS from a mean sample of 139 women are recruited from PubMed and FASTSTATS for geometrical regression analysis. Parametric and observational properties of both diseases (gene polymorphism, monoamines, gonadal steroids, gonadotropins, thyroid hormones, insulin sensitivity index, hirsute index, oligomenorrhea, anhedonia, asociality, apathy, emotional withdrawal, alogia, poor rapport, stereotypical thinking, hyperkinetic reactions, treatment with valproate) are stochastically distributed in the elliptical area.

Results : Results of both analyses suggest that insulin resistance and elevated testosterone are predictive to comorbidity. These associations are stronger with ...

Matevosyan Nr. Fractal Analysis In Health Research: Mandelbrot Set And Sierpinski Gasket Open Up Vistas In Comorbidity Studies

Alquiler Coches

The major limitations of meta-analyses are related to non–linear regressions, restricted coverage, confusing effects due to multi-factors, lack of randomization and mediation, and theory-directed approach that may obscure discrepancies. The geometrical reasoning in epidemiological assessments may help to facilitate measuring confounding “confusions”. Current concept resembles a fractal analysis where the analogue of the stressor is the cause (factor) of the disease (or infectious agent) and the analogue of elasticity index is the confounder. The acquisition of fractal analysis in epidemiological assessment of notifiable diseases in surveillance sample may help to locate and measure confounding effects in multi-dimensional system, through ...

Conscientious Objection And Pharmacists' Professional Obligation To Ensure Access To Legitimately Prescribed Medication, Andrea Lee Sep 2014

Conscientious Objection And Pharmacists' Professional Obligation To Ensure Access To Legitimately Prescribed Medication, Andrea Lee

Andrea Nicole Lee

This paper discusses legal issues surrounding pharmacists who refuse to dispense emergency contraception based on their religious views. One study reports up to thirty-one percent of pharmacists admit to not dispensing emergency contraception based on their moral or religious beliefs, leading to women’s limited access to a second chance to prevent pregnancy when their regular preventative method fails. Without a limitation on when pharmacists can deny patients access to legitimately prescribed medication, women’s fundamental right to choose whether to bear a child is no longer her choice, but her pharmacist’s choice. Legislatures must require pharmacists to act ...


A Comparative Approach To Coordination: How Apes, Monkeys And Humans Respond To An Assurance Game With Equivalent Procedures, Bart Wilson, Sarah Brosnan Aug 2014

A Comparative Approach To Coordination: How Apes, Monkeys And Humans Respond To An Assurance Game With Equivalent Procedures, Bart Wilson, Sarah Brosnan

Bart J Wilson

Our research directly compares coordinated decision making across the entire primate lineage, including a new-world monkey, an old-world monkey, an ape, and humans, to help understand how decision making is different between these species. We find that the ability to coordinate on a mutually beneficial decision does vary across species, that there is variability within each taxonomic group, and that this variation overlaps between groups. Each species represents a continuum, with pairs of each species ranging from random outcomes to those which coordinate on the payoff dominant outcome. What differs is the frequency of payoff dominant outcomes within each species.


An Experiment On Protecting Intellectual Property, Bart Wilson Aug 2014

An Experiment On Protecting Intellectual Property, Bart Wilson

Bart J Wilson

We conduct a laboratory experiment to explore whether the protection of intellectual property (IP) incentivizes people to create non-rivalrous knowledge goods, foregoing the production of other rivalrous goods. In the contrasting treatment with no IP protection, participants are free to resell and remake non-rivalrous knowledge goods originally created by others. We find that creators reap substantial profits when IP is protected and that rampant pirating is not uncommon when there is no IP protection. But most importantly, we find that IP protection in and of itself is neither necessary nor sufficient for generating wealth from the discovery of knowledge goods.


Horizontal Product Differentiation In Auctions And Multilateral Negotiations, Bart Wilson, Charles Thomas Aug 2014

Horizontal Product Differentiation In Auctions And Multilateral Negotiations, Bart Wilson, Charles Thomas

Bart J Wilson

We experimentally compare first-price auctions and multilateral negotiations after introducing horizontal product differentiation into a standard procurement setting. Both institutions yield identical surplus for the buyer, a difference from prior findings with homogeneous products that results from differentiation’s influence on sellers’ pricing behavior. The data are consistent with this finding being driven by concessions from low-cost sellers in response to differentiation reducing their likelihood of being the buyer’s surplus-maximizing trading partner. Further analysis shows that introducing product differentiation increases or leaves unchanged the intensity of price competition among sellers, which contrasts with the conventional wisdom that product differentiation ...

Precaution And Privacy Impact Assessments As Modes Towards Risk Management, David Wright, Raphael Gellert, Serge Gutwirth, Michael Friedewald Jul 2014

Precaution And Privacy Impact Assessments As Modes Towards Risk Management, David Wright, Raphael Gellert, Serge Gutwirth, Michael Friedewald

Michael Friedewald

This paper - which is the 5th chapter of the book edited by René Von Schomberg - contends that PIAs (privacy impact assessments) are an instrument of risk governance that should, therefore, be understood and implemented within the framework of the precautionary principle. Precaution is the best theoretical framework of action in the face of uncertain risks. After considering the precautionary principle from a conceptual point of view, this paper goes on to discuss privacy impact assessment in practice and concludes with the possibility of the integration of PIA within the context of risk governance. The paper also offers comments on the ...

Country Of Origin And Internet Publication: Applying The Berne Convention In The Digital Age, Sampsung Shi, Brian Fitzgerald, Cheryl Foong, Kylie Pappalardo Jun 2014

Country Of Origin And Internet Publication: Applying The Berne Convention In The Digital Age, Sampsung Shi, Brian Fitzgerald, Cheryl Foong, Kylie Pappalardo

Cheryl Foong

In this article, we argue that even if a work first published online can be considered to be simultaneously published all over the world it does not follow that any country can assert itself as the “country of origin” of the work for the purpose of imposing domestic copyright formalities. More specifically, we argue that the meaning of “United States work” under the U.S. Copyright Act should be interpreted in line with the presumption against extraterritorial application of domestic law to limit its application to only those works with a real and substantial connection to the United States. To ...

Has Garcetti Destroyed Academic Freedom? Feb 2014

Has Garcetti Destroyed Academic Freedom?

arditahaskoceloj@yahoo.com

The case of Garcetti v. Ceballos, decided by the United States Supreme Court in 2006, established that a public employee’s job related communications are not protected by the First Amendment. The Court also held that an employer has the right to impose disciplinary sanctions against that employee based on those job related communications. Although the Court specifically did not address how its decision would affect public university professors in the future, Garcetti has already alarmed academicians who believe in the concept of academic freedom. College professors, especially those who teach in research institutions, are now concerned that the Garcetti ...
