In 2014, the California legislature for the first time took some steps to create a framework for regulating groundwater pumping in over-drafted basins by adopting the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA), representing California's first statewide groundwater management planning program. SGMA called for local agencies to develop groundwater sustainability plans within the next five to seven years and then achieve sustainable levels of groundwater extraction by approximately 2040 to 2045. California's prior efforts to regulate groundwater extraction is discussed, as well as groundwater depletion.

Posters-at-the-Capitol

The drug overdose deaths in the USA increased by ~20% from 2015 to 2016 to the total >63,600 drug overdose deaths in 2016. Kentucky is among the highest rate of drug overdose death states in the USA. The current estimates of the prevalence of substance abuse are based on the self-reported surveys, overdose/toxicological reports, and drug-related crime statistics. Survey-based conventional approaches are not only cost and time-intensive but also underestimate the actual consumption of drugs. As “wastewater never lie,” the drug residues in raw wastewater collected from the centralized wastewater treatment plants were utilized to determine the consumption ...

1 - The Effects Of Position And Length On Cue Saliency In Article-Noun Agreement Of An Artificial Language, Niah Thomas, Brittany Scanameo

Georgia Undergraduate Research Conference (GURC)

We created a faux language where each word was embedded with a cue that pointed to which article (out of three) correctly paired with each word. There were six cues with differing lengths placed in different parts of the words in order to test the cue saliency in second language acquisition. Our team put together a list of 30 faux words along with their corresponding articles and their English definition in a powerpoint slide and allowed the research participants to view the slide show exactly three times. They then were given a written test where they were provided with the ...

E-Book Is Not A Four-Letter Word, Jamie G. Hazlitt, Jason Mitchell

LMU Librarian Publications & Presentations

As the landscape of e-book publishers, platforms, and acquisition models continues to shift and expand, librarians and staff working in collection development and acquisitions do their best to stay on top of ever-changing decision-points and workflows.

At the William H. Hannon Library at Loyola Marymount University, twenty librarian-liaisons are also expected to stay informed of new or changing options when it comes time to select a format for monographs in their subject areas. But selection is a secondary responsibility for most of our liaisons, and information about changes in our e-book collection development shared via email or even through semi-regular ...


The Challenge Of Employee Retention In A Time Of Full Employment, Brad Pope Oct 2018

The Challenge Of Employee Retention In A Time Of Full Employment, Brad Pope

River Cities Industrial and Organizational Psychology Conference

From time to time all organizations, large and small, struggle with employee turnover. However, it has been a consistent challenge for many organizations (especially in the healthcare arena) for more than a year due, in part, to the lowest employment rates the US has experienced for any sustained period of time. This presentation will focus on the difficulties of identifying, calculating, and addressing turnover, as well as examine other environmental factors that can impact turnover and question whether it is even beneficial for organizations to calculate and track employee turnover.

Dysfunctional Retention: The Case Of Abused Worker Syndrome, Alexandra Zelin, Lisa Burke-Smalley

River Cities Industrial and Organizational Psychology Conference

Extending work from the realm of counseling psychology into the work environment, we examine the workplace complement of “battered person/spouse syndrome” in which workers stay with the organization despite experiencing abuse. We define this abused worker syndrome (AWS) as an association of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)-type symptoms and other symptoms (e.g., anxiety, depression, low self-esteem), resulting from aversive incidents of psychological (i.e., non-physical) abuse at work. Our presentation will examine the contextual, relational, and individual antecedents of AWS, the psychological processes underlying targets staying, along with the associated workplace outcomes experienced by the targeted worker. We ...

Musselman Library Staff Publications

Students in the discipline of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies are uniquely positioned to critically engage with systems of power and apply academic theory to real world practice as a field that has a clear and implicit social justice angle to its scholarship. The Open Access movement can benefit from the critical theories used in WGS as a means of ensuring maximum inclusivity of the movement. Further, WGS students must acknowledge their privileged position within an academic institution and publish in ways that undermine the systems of power that lock up knowledge behind a toll in order to align their ...
