A Visual Analytics System For Making Sense Of Real-Time Twitter Streams, Amir HaghighatiMaleki 2020 The University of Western Ontario

A Visual Analytics System For Making Sense Of Real-Time Twitter Streams, Amir Haghighatimaleki

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Through social media platforms, massive amounts of data are being produced. Twitter, as one such platform, enables users to post “tweets” on an unprecedented scale. Once analyzed by machine learning (ML) techniques and in aggregate, Twitter data can be an invaluable resource for gaining insight. However, when applied to real-time data streams, due to covariate shifts in the data (i.e., changes in the distributions of the inputs of ML algorithms), existing ML approaches result in different types of biases and provide uncertain outputs. This thesis describes a visual analytics system (i.e., a tool that combines data visualization, human-data ...

Pragmatism As A Basis For Grounded Theory, David L. Morgan 2020 Portland State University

Pragmatism As A Basis For Grounded Theory, David L. Morgan

The Qualitative Report

Recently, there have been calls for renewed attention to the roots of Grounded Theory in pragmatism, and this article continues that effort at both the theoretical and the procedural level. From a theoretical perspective, it counters the claim that pragmatism is compatible with a relativist epistemology, as claimed by advocates of Constructivist Grounded Theory, and argues instead for a cyclical process of inquiry that moves from beliefs to actions to consequences. At the procedural level, the article demonstrates four concrete principles so that pragmatism: replaces induction with abduction; emphasizes the importance of prior beliefs as starting points; treats theoretical sampling ...

The goal of the article is to highlight transformation as an outcome in narrative research, with particular focus upon non-verbal communication in active interviewing. The article is constructed to examine transformation in thinking and understanding ...

Salary History And The Equal Pay Act: An Argument For The Adoption Of “Reckless Discrimination” As A Theory Of Liability, Kate Vandenberg 2020 Northwestern Pritzker School of Law

Salary History And The Equal Pay Act: An Argument For The Adoption Of “Reckless Discrimination” As A Theory Of Liability, Kate Vandenberg

Northwestern Journal of Law & Social Policy

The Equal Pay Act (EPA) purports to prohibit employers from paying female employees less than male employees with similar qualifications; however, the affirmative defenses provided in the EPA are loopholes that perpetuate the gender pay gap. In particular, the fourth affirmative defense allows for wage differentials based on a “factor other than sex.” Many federal circuits have read this defense broadly to include wage differentials based on salary history. That is, an employer can pay a female employee less than her male counterparts because she was paid less by her previous employer. While salary history was once viewed as an ...


Using Ecological Analyses To Characterize Socio-Economic Food Deserts, Annie Goyanes, J. Matthew Hoch 2020 Nova Southeastern University

Using Ecological Analyses To Characterize Socio-Economic Food Deserts, Annie Goyanes, J. Matthew Hoch

Biology Faculty Datasets

“Food desert” refers to an area where citizens lack access to fresh, affordable, nutritious food. Food deserts are generally in low-income urban neighborhoods or rural towns and can be considered environmental or economic injustice. South Florida and Broward County have been documented as having a high food insecurity rate, indicative of households having difficulty putting food on the table. Given the high rate of food insecurity, it was hypothesized that a lack of access to food and the presence of socio-economic food deserts was at least partially responsible. Data was collected by visiting three supermarkets in each of the 13 ...

Resurgimiento De Los Grupos Armados En Colombia Después De Los Diálogos Acuerdos Y Procesos De Paz, Mauricio Fernando Sánchez Tafur

Maestría en Política y Relaciones Internacionales

En Colombia, en los últimos cincuenta años, han existido diferentes grupos armados al margen de la ley, los cuales han generado un conflicto armado interno de baja intensidad, que se puede asimilar con el curso de una guerra asimétrica. Hasta hoy estos grupos han venido transitando a través de acuerdos y procesos con el Estado colombiano que durante los últimos quince años han arrojado como resultado la desmovilización, el desarme y la reintegración a la sociedad de los excombatientes. El objetivo central de este trabajo es hacer una reflexión sobre algunos documentos escritos por entidades gubernamentales y no gubernamentales, y ...

Cards For Women, Priyankaa Krishnan

Creative Components

Women are constantly fighting the cultural norms and stereotypes that surround us.

Well, it starts with understanding the problem at its source. We want to take the time to listen to their needs.

Cards for Women is a product that also empowers women but by providing a safe yet open space to share our struggles, or as we call them, pain points, to then co-create solutions or strategies for them. We provide a platform for women to anonymously ...


A Novel Item-Allocation Procedure For The Three-Form Planned Missing Data Design, Kyle M. Lang, E. Whitney G. Moore, Elizabeth M. Grandfield 2020 Tilburg University

A Novel Item-Allocation Procedure For The Three-Form Planned Missing Data Design, Kyle M. Lang, E. Whitney G. Moore, Elizabeth M. Grandfield

Kinesiology, Health and Sport Studies

We propose a new method of constructing questionnaire forms in the three-form planned missing data design (PMDD). The random item allocation (RIA) procedure that we propose promises to dramatically simplify the process of implementing three-form PMDDs without compromising statistical performance. Our method is a stochastic approximation to the currently recommended approach of deterministically spreading a scale's items across the X-, A-, B-, and C-blocks when allocating the items in a three-form design. Direct empirical support for the performance of our method is only available for scales containing at least 12 items, so we also propose a modified approach for ...

Cost-Related Nonadherence (Crn) To Medication, Jessica Kassel 2020 Fontbonne University

Cost-Related Nonadherence (Crn) To Medication, Jessica Kassel

FCS Advocacy Posters

Cost-related nonadherence (CRN) to medication is a growing health-care issue in the United States. CRN to medication is usually defined as skipping doses, taking less medication than prescribed, and/or delaying medication use due to costs. Among 11 developed countries, the United States’ CRN to medication is the highest at 17 percent. When individuals experience CRN to medication, they become vulnerable to additional adverse health outcomes, which may lead to more frequent hospitalizations, emergency department visits, and, in the worst-case scenario, death. Mitigation of CRN to medicine may lead to a reduction in patients’ use of health-care services by improving ...
