The Science And Psychology Of Survival, Thomas Kroll
Our brains and bodies are wired to survive-whether you are lost in the mountains, lost in a foreign city, or just feeling lost in a crowd. It's not about how many matches, maps, or knives you have, but how adaptable you are and how persistent you are about wanting to live.
Family Magazines – Consumer Culture, Japan, & The Making Of The Masses, 2013 Bridgewater State University
Family Magazines – Consumer Culture, Japan, & The Making Of The Masses, Amy Bliss Marshall
2013 New England Association for Asian Studies Conference
Family magazines like Ie no hikari (Light of the Home) and Kingu (King) became the first periodicals to reach more than one million readers in mid-1930’s Japan. These powerfully influential publications, moreover, helped to naturalize the practice of reading magazines and sculpted average Japanese perceptions of what such a product looked like. These magazines extended throughout Asia in the 1920s-1940s across the entire Japanese empire and beyond. Our historical understanding of magazines as a composite media with political power can be usefully and critically expanded.
The visual mixing that occurred on the pages of these mass magazines and the ...

Sec Football Away Game Consumption: The Roles Of Motives, Subcultural Identification, Contextual Dimensions And Destination Image In Sport Tourism, 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Sec Football Away Game Consumption: The Roles Of Motives, Subcultural Identification, Contextual Dimensions And Destination Image In Sport Tourism, Robert Bruce Daniell
The popularity of college football, specifically Southeastern Conference (SEC) football, is at an all-time high. Extant research analyzes consumer behavior in sport consumption settings; however, the away game sport tourist is often overlooked. Given the economic impacts associated with sport tourism, a deeper understanding of the college football sport tourist is desirable. This study utilized a research model grounded in social identity theory and motivation theory to examine the relationships among various sport consumption motives, subcultural identification, and destination image applied to SEC football away game sport tourists.
The results of the study indicate that SEC football away game sport ...
Revising A Summer Internship Course Using Student Evaluations, 2013 Grand Valley State University
Revising A Summer Internship Course Using Student Evaluations, Holly B. Perry, Lynda J. Sperazza
Journal of Tourism Insights
Internships play an important role in a university curriculum because they allow students to gain practical experience and explore possible career paths. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the summer internship experience from the students’ perspective to determine whether they achieved course learning outcomes. We objectively examined the course evaluations from students who completed their summer internships within a recreation and leisure studies program. Student responses (n = 29) to the 14 self-appraisal items in their course evaluation were the central focus of data analysis. Our primary research question was, “In what KSA [knowledge, skills, attitudes] areas do students ...
Exploring Pull Factor Influences At Campgrounds By Rv Association Members, 2013 Grand Valley State University
Exploring Pull Factor Influences At Campgrounds By Rv Association Members, Jill Fjelstul
Journal of Tourism Insights
Recreational vehicles (RVs) are owned and/or rented by travelers of diverse ages, traveling parties, and agendas. RVs, in most cases, will be parked at a campground during use, lending to the question of what factors influence campground selection. The current study explored pull factors specific to RV campground attributes by members of a RV association, identified the general demographics of the respective RV association, and investigated campground travel decisions by members of the RV association. Findings from the current study can assist campground owners/operators in developing effective marketing strategies for attracting RV travelers with customized products, onsite amenities ...

Quantified Recess: Design Of An Activity For Elementary Students Involving Analyses Of Their Own Movement Data, Victor R. Lee, Joel Drake
ITLS Faculty Publications
Recess is often a time for children in school to engage recreationally in physically demanding and highly interactive activities with their peers. This paper describes a design effort to encourage fifth-grade students to examine sensitivities associated with different measures of center by having them analyze activities during recess using over the course of a week using Fitbit activity trackers and TinkerPlots data visualization software. We describe the activity structure some observed student behaviors during the activity. We also provide a descriptive account, based on video records and transcripts, of two students who engaged thoughtfully with their recess data and developed ...
A Multi-Dasymetric Mapping Approach For Tourism, 2013 Ryerson University
A Multi-Dasymetric Mapping Approach For Tourism, Eric Vaz, Ana Claudia Campos
Geography Publications and Research
The challenge of measuring at municipal level tourism density has been a daunting task for both statisticians and geographers. The reason of this is enforced by the fact that administrative areas, such as municipalities, tend to be large spatial administrative units, sharing a large demographic asymmetry of tourist demand within the municipality. The rationale is that geographic characteristics such as coastal line, climate and vegetation, play a crucial role in tourist offer, leaning towards the conclusion that traditional census at administrative level are simply not enough to interpret the true distribution of tourism data. A more quantifiable method is necessary ...
Web 2.0 Spaces For Activism: Critiquing Its Novelty Through A Historical Lens Of Public Political Space, Payal Arora
This paper draws parallels between the use of public leisure spaces in the city such as parks and squares, and the use of certain forms of digital networks. Similarities between these two sorts of social contexts are worth considering, particularly their political dimension. This effortsituates the current conversation about social media as sites of political mobilization into dialogue with the historical analysis of public parks as spaces that, in a similar fashion, were designed for leisure and consumption but was appropriated as sites of resistance. It brings together the literature on urban parks as centers of democracy and the literature ...

Lone Parents, Leisure Mobilities And The Everyday, 2013 Dublin Institute of Technology
Lone Parents, Leisure Mobilities And The Everyday, Bernadette Quinn
Books / Book chapters
This chapter highlights the importance of the ordinary as a site for enquiring into how people make sense of their worlds. The primary intention is to highlight the spatiality of everyday leisure practices and to unravel some of the connections that link these to the occasional leisure practice of holidaying. Empirically, the study focuses on a group of female lone parents of dependent children living on low incomes in Dublin. In Ireland as elsewhere, lone parent families constitute a sizeable, growing but marginal societal group. For the women studied, leisure constituted informal, unstructured and modest activities that were stitched into ...
Toughness Predicts Performance In College Football, 2013 University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Toughness Predicts Performance In College Football, Joseph B. Rigoni
Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research: Department of Psychology
A premium college football player is estimated to generate over $1 million for his program, so optimal player assessment and selection are paramount. Lean body mass, back squat, and vertical jump have been the most predictive physical test scores, but such metrics typically account for less than 10% of variance in football performance. NFL scouts have tended to rely on vertical jump, 40-yard dash, and 20-yard shuttle scores, but interestingly, reliance on none of the physical tests conducted at the NFL Combine was predictive of team success; in fact, teams that relied on fewer total physical test scores tended to ...
First Draft Do Not Publish- Regulations On Firearms: Confessions From A Gun Salesman, Beau W. Cross
Beau W Cross
Over the past year, there has been a heated debate on Capitol Hill about the regulation of firearms and accessories such as high capacity magazines. With many school massacres and other acts of violence due to gunfire taking place in the past few decades, change in regulations was inevitable. A total ban on firearms was not feasible, as a citizen’s right to bear arms is protected through the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. However, in 2005, President Bush took a stance; he created change in policy by signing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (Arms ...

Volunteerism In Context: A Comparison On Habitat For Humanity Canada Programs, 2013 McMaster University
Volunteerism In Context: A Comparison On Habitat For Humanity Canada Programs, Leslie Cove
Open Access Dissertations and Theses
This thesis applies a Bourdieuian analysis to a qualitative study of volunteerism that focuses on the question of how ‘doing good’ relates to social change overall? - in particular, the ways that social class influences the volunteer experience and the overall culture of volunteerism. I argue that the leading theoretical research models of volunteerism need to recognize the evolving nature of the activity and theorize the influences that are structuring the culture of volunteerism. What emerges is a model of volunteering where motivation is understood as a complex set of factors that are structured by social class identities and volunteering is ...
