Stream Sediment Monitoring In Morehead Kentucky, Kristopher Krolikowski, Jen O'Keefe 2021 Morehead State University

Stream Sediment Monitoring In Morehead Kentucky, Kristopher Krolikowski, Jen O'Keefe

2021 Celebration of Student Scholarship - Oral Presentations

Sediment loads in stream systems play a big role in how overall runoff behaves. Streams naturally transport sediment at various ratios depending on precipitation. When vegetation is removed in upstream environments, sediment loads on streams increase. Sudden increases of sediments in streams can cause many issues, such as flooding or stream re-direction. In Morehead, KY, large-scale logging operations on the ridge above Knapp Avenue and on the ridge above the north end of Allen Avenue have caused increased sediment load in a small stream called Oxley Branch. This stream flows south parallel to Knapp Avenue and along the eastern property ...


The Nature And Role Of Perceived Threats In User Resistance To Healthcare Information Technology: A Psychological Reactance Theory Perspective, Madison N. Ngafeeson, Joseph A. Manga 2021 Northern Michigan University

The Nature And Role Of Perceived Threats In User Resistance To Healthcare Information Technology: A Psychological Reactance Theory Perspective, Madison N. Ngafeeson, Joseph A. Manga

Information Systems Faculty Publications and Presentations

The efforts of the United States government in the past 15 years have included harnessing the power of health information technology (HIT) to improve legibility, lessen medical errors, keep costs low, and elevate the quality of healthcare. However, user resistance is still a barrier to overcome in order to achieve desired outcomes. Understanding the nature of resistance is key to successfully increasing the adoption of HIT systems. Previous research has showed that perceived threats are a significant antecedent of user resistance; however, its nature and role have remained vastly unexplored. This study uses the psychological reactance theory to explain both ...

Just Because You're Powerless Doesn't Mean They Aren't Out To Get You: Low Power, Paranoia, And Aggression, Michael Schaerer, Trevor Foulk, Christilene Du Plessis, Min Hsuan Tu, Satish Krishnan

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

Due to its pervasive negative consequences, failing to understand the origins of paranoia can be costly for organizations. Prior research suggests that powerful employees are particularly likely to experience paranoia as others want to exploit the resources they control, implying that employees low in power should feel less paranoid. In contrast, we build on Conservation of Resources Theory and sociocultural perspectives of power to argue that the inherent vulnerability associated with being low power also evokes paranoia as a protection mechanism. Because paranoia causes employees to form malevolent attributions towards others, we predict that paranoia, in turn, leads to aggressive ...


Stifling Nascent Concerted Activity: The Nlrb And The Alstate Decision, Melanie R. Allen 2021 William & Mary Law School

Stifling Nascent Concerted Activity: The Nlrb And The Alstate Decision, Melanie R. Allen

William & Mary Journal of Race, Gender, and Social Justice

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) made a number of significant changes to the interpretation and enforcement of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA or the Act) under the Trump administration. The collective impact of these changes may make it more difficult for workers to bring successful unfair labor practice charges against their employers. Although NLRB case decisions and rulemaking affect a large proportion of American workers, the significance of these policy changes is often not widely recognized. This Note will examine one such change—the Board’s 2019 Alstate Maintenance decision that overturned its 2011 decision in WorldMark by ...

Predictors Of Successful Adoption Of Technology Supported Learning In Universities In Uganda: A Students’ Perspective, Esther Namirembe, Michael Eddie Kyobe Prof. 2021 Makerere University

Predictors Of Successful Adoption Of Technology Supported Learning In Universities In Uganda: A Students’ Perspective, Esther Namirembe, Michael Eddie Kyobe Prof.

The African Journal of Information Systems

This study identified the predictors of successful adoption of technology supported learning (TSL) among students in universities. Presumably, the perspective of the students in understanding this study is crucial because students are key users of TSL systems and are faced with challenges in the adoption of such systems in learning institutions. We argue in the present study that predictors can be identified using Gestalts approach given the complex interactions between the organizational and individual factors. The extent of interaction between the factors was accomplished using the clustering algorithm. Data was collected from 184 students from Makerere and Gulu universities. Six ...

An Investigation Of Factors Determining The Token Value In The Blockchain-Based Early Funding Mechanism, Alfreda Šapkauskienė, Simona Pakėnaitė

Economic and Business Review

The research employs WLS Regression for examining the main determinants of the ICO profitability in the crowdfunding stage. The variables are divided into three main categories: financial and technological aspects, and the ICO characteristics, with the aim of verifying which parts most influence the funds raised. The results imply that financial and technological aspects might indeed have an impact on the ICO profitability. The key factors covered are the opensource code availability and the preset hard cap. Overall, the econometric analysis discloses that the amount raised during the ICO is not affected by the availability of a white paper and ...

The Role Of Four Life-Story Aspects In A Collaborative Decision-Making Process In The Field Of Leadership Development, Sokol Loci, Judita Peterlin

Economic and Business Review

The aim of this conceptual paper is to add knowledge to the existing leadership development field. We examine the development of core intra- and interpersonal values, specifically the individual collaborative features, by considering life experiences (Day, Fleenor, Atwater, Sturm, & McKee, 2014), and how these personal collaborative features become integrated when leadership members (members of the leadership process) collaborate (Cullen-Lester, Maupin, & Carter, 2017). We formulate the following four relevant propositions: (1) Individual collaborative features should be integrated with the essential features of the leadership members' collaboration during a decision-making process. (2) A life-story aspect has substantive contents and the information drawn ...

Accounting For Sources Of Information In Trade Fairs: Evidence From Portuguese Exhibitors, Pedro M. Da Silva, José F. Santos, Victor F. Moutinho

Economic and Business Review

Trade fairs are important sources of information for decision making in marketing management. Currently, trade fairs are places where participants share useful data and information, while creating relationships between customers (visitors) and suppliers (exhibitors). However, only a limited number of studies have focused on the identification of the sources of information that exhibitors can provide for marketing managers at trade fairs. This study examines the importance of the different types of information resources that can be delivered by exhibitors to managers in order to transfer information about product and market trends. Based on the data from a survey of 172 ...


An Empirical Analysis Of The Effects Of Student Work And Academic Performance On The Probability Of Employment, Tjaša Bartolj, Sašo Polanec 2021 Institute for Economic Research, Ljubljana, Slovenia

An Empirical Analysis Of The Effects Of Student Work And Academic Performance On The Probability Of Employment, Tjaša Bartolj, Sašo Polanec

Economic and Business Review

The theoretical relationship between student work and post-college probability of employment is ambiguous, due to the opposing direct and indirect effects on human capital accumulation. Student work may on one hand lower academic performance and thus harm the likelihood of getting a job, while on the other hand enabling students to acquire skills that increase their labour market odds. In this paper, we provide an answer to the question, whether the policy should encourage or limit student work, by using rich data which allow us to compare the effects of the two investments in human capital on the likelihood of ...

A Cultural Value Congruence Approach To Organizational Embeddedness, Emma Lei Jing, Nathaniel C. Lupton, Mahfooz A. Ansari 2021 University of Alberta

A Cultural Value Congruence Approach To Organizational Embeddedness, Emma Lei Jing, Nathaniel C. Lupton, Mahfooz A. Ansari

Faculty Research, Scholarly, and Creative Activity

Drawing on the person–organization fit theory, we investigate how the value congruence between employees’ collectivist values and their perception of organizational collectivism influences organizational embeddedness. Based on a survey of 515 working adults, the polynomial regression and response surface analysis results support that embeddedness is highest in the presence of both high individual and organizational collectivism. Additionally, the smaller the discrepancy between the two perceptions, the more embedded the employees. Our study contributes to the cultural perspectives in the organizational embeddedness research by theorizing and measuring the impact of collectivism at the individual level. The findings also contribute to ...
