Go Your Own Way: The Producer As Moral Author In Entertainment, Taryn Stewart 2018 Carroll College, Helena, MT

Go Your Own Way: The Producer As Moral Author In Entertainment, Taryn Stewart

Power, Voice, Mandate: Moral Authority in the Contemporary Age

Moral authority is a moral derivative of authority, which in turn is connected to religion and tradition. In today’s Western society, both religion and tradition are fragmented in our increasingly diverse society. This is nowhere more apparent than it is in entertainment. So where does moral authority lie in entertainment? Producers in entertainment hold moral authority. Authority is the ability to create action, versus power, which is the ability to force action. Because producers create content, which in turn has the potential to enact change, they possess moral authority. Different producers have differing amounts of moral authority. Disney has ...

Rapid Tagging And Reporting For Functional Language Extraction In Scientific Articles, Mahdi Ramezani, Vijay K. Kalivarapu, Stephen B. Gilbert, Sarah R. Huffman, Elena Cotos, Annette M. O'Connor 2017 Iowa State University

Rapid Tagging And Reporting For Functional Language Extraction In Scientific Articles, Mahdi Ramezani, Vijay K. Kalivarapu, Stephen B. Gilbert, Sarah R. Huffman, Elena Cotos, Annette M. O'Connor

Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Conference Proceedings and Posters

This paper describes the development of a web-based application for tagging scientific articles, in part to create machine learning training datasets for automated functional language identification and extraction (AFLEX). The initial intent for this work was to provide a new member of the ecosystem of tools that facilitate the structured automation of systematic reviews, an area of work that typically requires critical analysis of multiple research studies and provides an exhaustive summary of literature related to a research question. However, the tool’s modular interface allows use across disciplines. A user may upload PDF or text documents and quickly tag ...


A Checklist For Mortals: Preparing For Death’S Arrival, Becky Daniel 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

A Checklist For Mortals: Preparing For Death’S Arrival, Becky Daniel

Professional Projects from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications

We learn everything from our parents—how to walk, talk and treat potential life partners. Yet our culture in the United States makes it difficult to talk to our parents about death and those consequences have a real impact. Closing a loved one’s estate can stretch from months to years without proper planning. While death is constant, the death industry is not. It is ever changing. And while all lives have equal value, there are many preparations that one person may need (veteran, parent, lotto winner) while another does not. The best way to prepare for death is to ...


Back To The Future: The Expanding Field Of Latin-American Science Fiction, Rachel H. Haywood Ferreira 2017 Iowa State University

Back To The Future: The Expanding Field Of Latin-American Science Fiction, Rachel H. Haywood Ferreira

Rachel Haywood Ferreira

This article examines the exponential growth of the field of Latin American science fiction in recent years, first through an evaluation of a series of critical/historical studies of the genre, and then by tracing the textual histories of a number of the region's earliest works of sf. The contemporary interest in identifying, retrolabeling, and republishing the works that form the local roots of Latin American science fiction is indicative of the growing maturity of the genre there, as it stems from a desire to understand the nature and extent of participation in this global yet Northern-centered genre in ...


The Indianapolis Archdiocesan Newspaper In The Raymond T. Bosler Years, 1947-1976, William Doherty Ph.D. 2017 Marian University

The Indianapolis Archdiocesan Newspaper In The Raymond T. Bosler Years, 1947-1976, William Doherty Ph.D.

Department of History and Social Sciences

This chapter deals with Msgr. Bosler’s relations with two archbishops-publishers with very different approaches with regard to their editor’s independence. Bosler held that a diocesan paper ought not be a company newsletter filled with nothing but what is of “good report” of the Church, but rather deal with the pressing public foreign and domestic issues. Under Bosler’s editorial hand, that meant the Cold War, NATO, the United Nations, immigration, medical care for the aged and disabled, right to work laws, race, housing, McCarthyism, the John Birch Society, Vietnam, the women’s rights movement, and more.

Creating Effective Style Documents: A Practicum In Trade Publication, Kristen Tardio 2017 Kennesaw State University

Creating Effective Style Documents: A Practicum In Trade Publication, Kristen Tardio

Master of Arts in Professional Writing Capstones

It is no secret that the field of publication thrives on collaboration: among publishers, editorial and production team members, designers, marketing and publicity staff, sales representatives and promoters, authors, illustrators, reviewers, and, of course, readers. However, an equally important yet less-explored relationship exists within this industry, between publishing staff and a text itself. As such, despite this crucial connection, the technical means by which the final product is created may also be overlooked.

This practicum examines these technical resources: style guides/sheets (especially for house style), their creation, and their usage in publishing, specifically how they pertain to sales material ...

The Black Press In Minnesota During World War I, Alejandra Galvan 2017 Minnesota State University Mankato

The Black Press In Minnesota During World War I, Alejandra Galvan

Journal of Undergraduate Research at Minnesota State University, Mankato

April 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the United States entering World War I. Many enjoy learning about the battles, the military, and the Homefront. But there is a need for more scholarship to understand the role African Americans played in the war. From my research, many African Americans disagreed with US involvement. Why would a country agree to fight for democracy overseas when its citizens need freedom at home? Racism in the United States concerned African Americans deeply. At the same time, however, African Americans viewed World War I as a way to demonstrate their patriotism. Black citizens ...

The Academic Research Library And Science Education: A Roadmap For The Journey, Sue Ann Gardner 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The Academic Research Library And Science Education: A Roadmap For The Journey, Sue Ann Gardner

Library Conference Presentations and Speeches

Science libraries are integral to the process of science inquiry.

Science education is facilitated within science libraries.

The future of science libraries is predicated on librarians maintaining a meaningful relationship with those engaging in scholarship.

Science libraries need to combine traditional and emerging service models, provide access to a wide array of materials, incorporate appropriate technology, and offer ergonomic work spaces to promote effective learning.

The science commons includes varied work spaces which encourage innovation and creativity, facilitate situated and active learning, and promote communities of practice.

The National Science Education Standards definition of science inquiry includes the diverse ways ...
