Value Added Fed And Feeder Cattle Practices: Are They Paying?, Elliott James Dennis 2020 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Value Added Fed And Feeder Cattle Practices: Are They Paying?, Elliott James Dennis

Extension Farm and Ranch Management

Summary

Some value added management programs clearly pay more than others and some do not pay at all. However, just like with a breeding or forage management strategy where not every year the cow gets bred back or the grass has sufficient protein, a value added program strategies premiums vary year to year. Switching the way cattle are managed and raised, handled, and fed requires planning and an understanding of labor and management capabilities. Not every cattle producer could or even should switch management practices an animal health protocol – even if premiums do exist. Thus, careful planning and consideration in ...


Idea Co-Creation On Social Media Platforms: Towards A Theory Of Social Ideation, Pratyush Bharati, Kui Du, Abhijit Chaudhury, Narendra M. Agrawal 2020 Bryant University

Idea Co-Creation On Social Media Platforms: Towards A Theory Of Social Ideation, Pratyush Bharati, Kui Du, Abhijit Chaudhury, Narendra M. Agrawal

Computer Information Systems Journal Articles

Innovation scholars have long been discussing social media as a rich source of information, knowledge, and new ideas, yet, whether or how social media can directly intervene with organizational ideation processes remains unclear. In this study, we investigate the impact of external and enterprise social media platforms on organizational ideation. Grounded in seventy-nine cases and adapting social capital theory in social media contexts, this study attempts to develop a theory of social ideation. Social ideation consists of social media-enabled mechanisms that generate social capital, enable multi-level social exchanges, foster idea co-creation activities such as idea sourcing, filtering, elaboration, and integration ...

Measuring And Unpacking Affective Polarization On Twitter: The Role Of Party And Gender In The 2018 Senate Races, Kevin Mentzer, Kate Fallon, Janet Prichard, David Yates

Computer Information Systems Journal Articles

This study examines how the Twittersphere talked about candidates running for the U.S senate in the 2018 congressional elections. We classify Twitter users as Liberal or Conservative to better understand how the two groups use social media during a major national political election. Using tweet sentiment, we assess how the Twittersphere felt about in-group party versus out-group party candidates. When we further break these findings down based on the candidates’ gender, we find that male senatorial candidates were talked about more positively than female candidates. We also find that Conservatives talked more positively about female Republican candidates than they ...

Toshiba's Approach To Customer Value Design, Tatsuyuki Mikami

Markets, Globalization & Development Review

This paper describes the practice of "design thinking" in a Japanese company that tends to operate in an in-house-completed work context under a rigorously divided function-based vertical organization.

A Guide For Early Career Success In Academic Research, Obinna O. Obilo, William B. Locander, David A. Locander

Atlantic Marketing Journal

Balancing the research, teaching, and service facets is important to achieving success in academia. Doctoral programs should prepare their students to successfully navigate and balance all three of these facets. We focus on the research facet in this study and draw from the experience of a panel of accomplished researchers within the discipline, to compile a set of guidelines for doctoral students and new faculty. Analyzing the qualitative results from the panel interviews, we find that to ensure success within the research facet, one must effectively manage three emergent focal distinctions; a relationship with: oneself, others, and with the work.

Turning The Tides - An Examination Of The Red Tide Epidemic In Florida, Dahlia Lilleslåtten

Honors Program Theses

Southwest Florida’s red tides are characterized by patches of maroon-colored water, respiratory irritants, and elevated levels of marine mortalities. While a natural phenomenon, red tide has a devastating impact on aquatic ecosystems that become overwhelmed with dense aggregations of unicellular organisms and the subsequent brevetoxins that are released into the air. ​This paper reviews recent research on the Gulf Coast’s red tide epidemic in an attempt to fully understand the cause of the heightened intensity, frequency, and duration of algal blooms. It goes on to highlight the Sanibel and Captiva Islands’ rich history in conservation, and how this ...


Short-Term Truckload Spot Rates' Prediction In Consideration Of Temporal And Between-Route Correlations, Wei Xiao, Chuan Xu, Hongling Liu, Hong Yang, Xiaobo Liu 2020 Old Dominion University

Short-Term Truckload Spot Rates' Prediction In Consideration Of Temporal And Between-Route Correlations, Wei Xiao, Chuan Xu, Hongling Liu, Hong Yang, Xiaobo Liu

Computational Modeling and Simulation Engineering Faculty Publications

Truckload spot rate (TSR), defined as a price offered on the spot to transport a certain cargo by using an entire truck on a target transportation line, usually price per kilometer-ton, is a key factor in shaping the freight market. In particular, the prediction of short-term TSR is of great importance to the daily operations of the trucking industry. However, existing predictive practices have been limited largely by the availability of multilateral information, such as detailed intraday TSR information. Fortunately, the emerging online freight exchange (OFEX) platforms provide unique opportunities to access and fuse more data for probing the trucking ...


Enterprise Risk Management In Government-Affiliated Organizations, Beau Staso 2020 University of Pennsylvania

Enterprise Risk Management In Government-Affiliated Organizations, Beau Staso

Wharton Research Scholars

The development of enterprise risk management (ERM) has led organizations to adopt an integrated approach to risk management that aims to recognize risks as both opportunities and threats and focus on optimizing their risk. This paper compares ERM implementation in firms that are government-affiliated and those that are not, finding that publicly affiliated organizations on average are less prepared to appropriately manage risk and seize opportunities related to their objectives. This study also finds that there are significant differences in ERM implementation between industries, firms that face competition are associated with higher risk maturity whether government-affiliated or not, and government ...

The results provide insights and information on how public-sector organizations may foster a culture that promotes and encourages employee-led innovation. The themes that emerged were (a) transparency ...


Navigating A Risk-Filled Sea: Insights On How The Law And Insurance Chart A Course By Allocating Liabilities And Creating Incentives, Stephen M. Shapiro 2020 Fordham Law School

Navigating A Risk-Filled Sea: Insights On How The Law And Insurance Chart A Course By Allocating Liabilities And Creating Incentives, Stephen M. Shapiro

Fordham Journal of Corporate & Financial Law

Risk can be defined as the probability and extent of liability. Risk management involves identifying, evaluating, and minimizing liabilities, which is critical to the success of a wide range of enterprises. Managers often turn to insurance to reallocate risk, and to experts such as surveyors, engineers, attorneys, and accountants to identify and evaluate risks and to advise on how to reduce them. The law also ascertains, allocates, and liquidates liabilities, and affects how insurance reallocates them. Policymakers-both industrial and legal-must be aware of how industry practices, expert services, insurance provisions, and legal structures are intertwined to achieve diverse, and perhaps ...


Re-Thinking Risk Management Of Auction House Guarantees And Third-Party Irrevocable Bids, Nathan Krasnick 2020 Sotheby's Institute of Art

Re-Thinking Risk Management Of Auction House Guarantees And Third-Party Irrevocable Bids, Nathan Krasnick

MA Theses

This paper addresses the question of how deviations between expected and actual art auction results impact the auction guarantees made within an artist’s market and among multiple artists, and whether those impacts can be identified and quantified. To do so, I use a theoretical pricing model based on datasets of historical auction records going back to the earliest available date for a specific artist but no further than 2010. I find that, in comparing the model’s expected and actual results to empirical price deviations at auction, we can identify and quantify the impact of those deviations on guarantees.

Relational Accountability In The Art Business : A Study Of Ethics, Theodore Soliman 2020 Sotheby's Institute of Art

Relational Accountability In The Art Business : A Study Of Ethics, Theodore Soliman

MA Theses

The artworld's unethical practices are ubiquitous amongst its stakeholders, with a lack of moral responsibility that allows for continuous sexual, emotional, and racial abuse. As an industry that is unregulated and resistant to change, these issues have been passed down from one generation to the next, forming a vicious cycle of predatory behavior. By investigating various stakeholders' roles, this study critiques the handling of these moral injustices and proposes relational accountability as a solution. The art world’s traditional understanding of accountability only focuses on the aftermath without challenging the agreed-upon ethical standards that stakeholders hold each other to.
