Hong Kong Children's Understanding Of Television Advertising, Kara Chan Dec 2000

Hong Kong Children's Understanding Of Television Advertising, Kara Chan

Department of Communication Studies Journal Articles

This study examines Chinese children's understanding and comprehension of television advertising. A quota sample of 448 children made up of 32 girls and 32 boys from kindergartens and grades 1-6, were personally interviewed in May 1998. The results indicated that children in grade 2 (aged 7-8 years) were beginning to understand what advertising was and were aware of the persuasive intention of television advertising. Over one-third of older children from grade 4 understood that television stations carried advertising for money. Like children in the West, the main reason for liking and disliking commercials depended on their entertainment element. An ...


Return Migration As An Individual's Optimal Utility Maximizing Behavior, Yang Li, Wallace E. Huffman Dec 2000

Return Migration As An Individual's Optimal Utility Maximizing Behavior, Yang Li, Wallace E. Huffman

Economic Staff Paper Series

The paper presents a model of location behavior of a multi-period finite-life utility maximizing individual who consumes leisure, purchased goods, and local amenities and is retired in the final period of life and empirical evidence from a hazard rate analysis using micro-data on return migration for ^erto Rican bom males who worked in the United States during the 1980s. An individual is modeled as considers staying in his home country or migrating to a host country. We show that it is optimal to migrate in the first period or to stay at in the home country. Given that migration occurs ...

The Labor Force Experiences Of Non-College Bound Youth In The South: A Ten-Year Perspective, Lionel J. Beaulieu, Melissa Barfield Dec 2000

The Labor Force Experiences Of Non-College Bound Youth In The South: A Ten-Year Perspective, Lionel J. Beaulieu, Melissa Barfield

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Debates continue to abound regarding the importance of having an educated, well-trained workforce that can effectively fill the technology-sophisticated jobs emerging in the South. No doubt, the ticket to a decent job continues to be tied to a college education. But, the reality is that not all adults are able to secure a post-secondary education. The question is what prospects exist for those individuals who become non-college bound? This study devotes attention to the plight of young adults in the South who graduated from high school in 1982 and who pursued no post-secondary education of any type over the subsequent ...


College Graduates In The Nonmetropolitan South: Origins And Prospects, Robert M. Gibbs Dec 2000

College Graduates In The Nonmetropolitan South: Origins And Prospects, Robert M. Gibbs

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This study documents the regional origins of the college-experienced population in the nonmetro South, using the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, 1979 Cohort. As of 1994, the nonmetro South had generated over half of its own college-experienced adults between the ages of 30-38, a higher rate than that of any other region. Although the results of logistic regression estimates show that nonmetro southerners were less likely to attend college, those who left the region for college were more likely to return than other regional migrants, especially after age 30. In addition, the relatively low demand for college-trained labor in the ...


Earning Patterns Of Mexican Workers In The Southern Region: A Focus On Nonmetro/Metro Distinctions, Rogelio Saenz Dec 2000

Earning Patterns Of Mexican Workers In The Southern Region: A Focus On Nonmetro/Metro Distinctions, Rogelio Saenz

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

The last few years have witnessed a tremendous change in the geographic location patterns of the Mexican population in the United States. The rural South represents one of the areas that have seen a noticeable growth in the Mexican population over the last few years. Unfortunately, data necessary to examine the social and economic adjustment of Mexicans in this area are not available at this time. This analysis uses data from the 1990 Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) to examine the earnings patterns bf Mexican-origin workers in the South. The sample used to conduct the analysis includes 9,509 Mexican-origin ...


Labor Supply And Underemployment In The Southern United States, Leif Jensen, Jill L. Findeis, Qiuyan Wang Dec 2000

Labor Supply And Underemployment In The Southern United States, Leif Jensen, Jill L. Findeis, Qiuyan Wang

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

We analyze data from selected March Current Population Surveys (U. S. Bureau of the Census) spanning the period 1968 to 1998 to provide a statistical portrait of labor force participation and composition, and underemployment in the nonmetropolitan (nonmetro) and metropolitan (metro) South. The southern labor force has been characterized by many of the same trends seen at the national level. Labor force participation rates have been on the rise in the South, due exclusively to the influx of women into the labor market. For this reason, and due to immigration, the southern labor force has come to consist more of ...


Migration In The Nonmetropolitan South, Mark Nord, John Cromartie Dec 2000

Migration In The Nonmetropolitan South, Mark Nord, John Cromartie

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Data from multiple sources are analyzed to provide a picture of domestic migration patterns, characteristics of migrants, and effects of migration on poverty and human capital in the rural South during the 1990s. Migration trends in the 1990s were quite favorable for the rural South. Net migration was positive and substantial and represented a gain of people in their early career years including a disproportionate share of young families. The "brain drain" that characterized the 1980s has at least slowed, and possibly stopped. The comparative advantage of rural areas is increasingly found in their natural amenities and low population densities ...


Job Search, Employment Density, And The Rate Of Exit Of Unemployment In Nonmetropolitan Labor Markets, Bradford F. Mills Dec 2000

Job Search, Employment Density, And The Rate Of Exit Of Unemployment In Nonmetropolitan Labor Markets, Bradford F. Mills

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Little is known about the influences that employment density and other local labor-market conditions have on transitions from unemployment to employment in nonmetropolitan areas. The empirical job search model developed in this paper finds that individual characteristics, unemployment rates, commuting patterns, and trade and service sector growth all significantly influence the rate of exit of unemployment following job loss. Measures of local labor-market density, by contrast, appear to have little direct impact on the rate of exit of unemployment. The results of the paper suggest that the differential targeting of remote areas with job search assistance for displaced workers is ...

Celebrating Medicrity At The Bowls, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Well, you could have bowled me over with a feather, or perhaps a dot com, when I learned today that four bowl games had already been played. Not exactly stellar match- ups, but bowl games nonetheless. And say what you will; a bowl game is still a bowl game.

Looking To The Future ... Distance Education Issues In Nebraska, Nn21 Distance Education/Outreach Action Team Dec 2000

Looking To The Future ... Distance Education Issues In Nebraska, Nn21 Distance Education/Outreach Action Team

Publications from Nebraska Network 21

The Nebraska Network 21 (NN21) Action Team on Distance Education/Outreach has studied a variety of issues related to distance education in order to better serve the people of Nebraska. Distance education has grown rapidly in Nebraska, but is clearly in its infancy. Many important issues still are being identified and are far from understood. The possibilities of distance education are yet to be fully realized. But in a state with a small, spread-out population such as ours -- perhaps in any state -- it would seem that distance education holds great promise for making many forms of education accessible to all ...

My Work And Welcome To It, Stephen Hillard Dec 2000

My Work And Welcome To It, Stephen Hillard

Publications from Nebraska Network 21

“I want to go to graduate school in English," said my student Peter, then blurted out, "and be a professor, like you." I bit my lip not to say something deflating--at the end of the semester I didn't feel my life should be anyone's goal. I knew that he pictured the life of a professor as reading interesting books, talking about them with enthusiastic students like himself, doing research one loves, and serving on a few committees. And being paid for doing this! I didn't warn Peter that the scholarly life he aspires to is seen as ...

Shaq, Lsu, The Degree V. Education, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

Over the past several days much has been written about the graduation of Shaquille O'Neal from Louisiana State University. Indeed the event has been the butt of many jokes, one of which Shaq generated himself when he told people he was working on his degree at Learn Slow University. He now says that LSU means Love Shaq University.

Money And Baseball: The Salaries Keep Rising, Richard C. Crepeau

On Sport and Society

It was the late Senator Everett McKinley Dirksen of Illinois who once said, "a billion here, a billion there, pretty soon were talking about real money." This quaint observation came to mind over the past few days in baseball as it was "a few million here, a few million there." One wonders if we are now talking about real money.

The Fragmentation Of Self Within The Indian Novel, Michele Gibney Dec 2000

The Fragmentation Of Self Within The Indian Novel, Michele Gibney

Michele Gibney

With the novel Midnight’s Children, Rushdie forged a new path for novel-writing. In his epic story the main character became split into two in order to show the many facets of Indian culture. Instead of gaining an understanding of just one way of life, the reader became privy to all the stories being lived in such places as the Methwold estates, the surreal Sundarbans, and the Magician’s Ghetto. The story of one, single individual was lost in the cacophony of voices that each had their own tale to tell in Rushdie’s novel. This new form of writing ...
