robert_martin16Professor Emeritus Robert A. Martin is this week’s #RacerScholar. He co-authored the paper, “Chronology for the Cueva Victoria fossil site (SE Spain): Evidence for Early Pleistocene Afro-Iberian dispersals,” which is in the January 2016 edition of the Journal of Human Evolution.

Abstract

Cueva Victoria has provided remains of more than 90 species of fossil vertebrates, including a hominin phalanx, and the only specimens of the African cercopithecid Theropithecus oswaldi in Europe. To constrain the age of the vertebrate remains we used paleomagnetism, vertebrate biostratigraphy and Th-230/U dating. Normal polarity was identified in the non-fossiliferous lowest and highest stratigraphic units (red clay and capping flowstones) while reverse polarity was found in the intermediate strati graphic unit (fossiliferous breccia). A lower polarity change occurred during the deposition of the decalcification clay, when the cave was closed and karstification was active. A second polarity change occurred during the capping flowstone formation, when the upper galleries were filled with breccia. The mammal association indicates a post-Jaramillo age, which allows us to correlate this upper reversal with the Brunhes-Matuyama boundary (0.78 Ma). Consequently, the lower reversal (N-R) is interpreted as the end of the Jaramillo magnetochron (0.99 Ma). These ages bracket the age of the fossiliferous breccia between 0.99 and 0.78 Ma, suggesting that the capping flowstone was formed during the wet Marine Isotopic Stage 19, which includes the Brunhes-Matuyama boundary. Fossil remains of Theropithecus have been only found in situ similar to 1 m below the B/M boundary, which allows us to place the arrival of Theropithecus to Cueva Victoria at similar to 0.9-0.85 Ma. The fauna of Cueva Victoria lived during a period of important climatic change, known as the Early-Middle Pleistocene Climatic Transition. The occurrence of the oldest European Acheulean tools at the contemporaneous nearby site of Cueva Negra suggest an African dispersal into SE Iberia through the Strait of Gibraltar during MIS 22, when sea-level was 100 m below its present position, allowing the passage into Europe of, at least, Theropithecus and Homo bearing Acheulean technology.

Our #NewBookoftheWeek is ‘The Activist Learner : Inquiry, Literacy, and Service to Make Learning Matter’

51kuw-mgjtl-_sx339_bo1204203200_The Activist Learner : Inquiry, Literacy, and Service to Make Learning Matter, by professors Jeffrey D. Wilhelm, Whitney Douglas, and Sara W. Fry, is this week’s #NewBookoftheWeek.

You can find a copy of The Activist Learner on the “New Book Shelf” in Waterfield Library.

This dynamic book explores a variety of ways teachers can integrate service learning to enliven their classroom, meet the unique developmental needs of their students, and satisfy the next generation of standards and assessments.  The authors demonstrate how inquiry-based teaching with service learning outcomes cultivates, requires, and rewards literacy, as well as important skills like perspective taking and compassion.  Through the pursuit of service learning projects, students develop and apply literacy and disciplinary knowledge, experience real-world implications, and learn to think in more connected ways. At the same time, students acquire literacies essential for creating a culture of civic engagement and for mastering the Common Core.

A powerful blend of practical, theoretical, and inspirational, The Activ(ist) Learner:

  • Provides examples that combine inquiry and service learning to help students develop and apply literacy and disciplinary knowledge.
  • Helps teachers move from informational teaching to sociocultural apprenticeship teaching.
  • Describes a way of teaching that develops students’ intrapersonal and interpersonal skills.
  • Includes templates for conducting inquiry units and charts with CCSS connections.

Michael B. Flinn, Ph.D. is this week’s #RacerScholar

flinnOur #RacerScholar this week is Professor Michael B. Flinn in the Department of Biology. He contributed to the article, “Baseflow physical characteristics differ at multiple spatial scales in stream networks across diverse biomes,” which appeared in volume 31, issue 1 of Landscape Ecology.

Abstract

Context
Spatial scaling of ecological processes is facilitated by quantifying underlying habitat attributes. Physical and ecological patterns are often measured at disparate spatial scales limiting our ability to quantify ecological processes at broader spatial scales using physical attributes.

Objective
We characterized variation of physical stream attributes during periods of high biological activity (i.e., baseflow) to match physical and ecological measurements and to identify the spatial scales exhibiting and predicting heterogeneity.

Methods
We measured canopy cover, wetted width, water depth, and sediment size along transects of 1st-5th order reaches in five stream networks located in biomes from tropical forest to arctic tundra. We used hierarchical analysis of variance with three nested scales (watersheds, stream orders, reaches) to identify scales exhibiting significant heterogeneity in attributes and regression analyses to characterize gradients within and across stream networks.

Results
Heterogeneity was evident at one or multiple spatial scales: canopy cover and water depth varied significantly at all three spatial scales while wetted width varied at two scales (stream order and reach) and sediment size remained largely unexplained. Similarly, prediction by drainage area depended on the attribute considered: depending on the watershed, increases in wetted width and water depth with drainage area were best fit with a linear, logarithmic, or power function. Variation in sediment size was independent of drainage area.

Conclusions
The scaling of ecologically relevant baseflow physical characteristics will require study beyond the traditional bankfull geomorphology since predictions of baseflow physical attributes by drainage area were not always best explained by geomorphic power laws.

Wuhan, 1938 : war, refugees, and the making of modern China
, by Stephen R. MacKinnon, Ph.D. is our #NewBookoftheWeek. You can find a copy of the book online, or on the “New Book Shelf” in Waterfield Library.

About the book:

During the spring of 1938, a flood of Chinese refugees displaced by the Anti-Japanese War (1937-1945) converged on the central Yangzi valley tricity complex of Wuhan. For ten remarkable months, in a highly charged atmosphere of carnage, heroism, and desperation, Wuhan held out against the Japanese in what would become a turning point in the war—and one that attracted international attention. Stephen MacKinnon for the first time tells the full story of Wuhan’s defense and fall, and how the siege’s aftermath led to new directions in the history of modern Chinese culture, society, and politics.–University of California Press

Professor Silva is being recognized for her contribution to the article, “The open economy balance sheet channel and the exporting decisions of firms: evidence from the Brazilian crisis of 1999,” which was published in volume 67, issue 4 of Oxford Economic Papers.

Abstract

We consider the impact of the Brazilian crisis of 1999 on the extensive and intensive margin of exporters versus non-exporters through the open economy balance sheet channel. Using an open economy balance sheet channel model with firm heterogeneity, we explore predictors that firms will engage in global markets. Our results based on a detailed firm-level panel of data for Brazilian 10,573 firms for the period 1996–2007, show that the decision to export and overall growth of sales for exporting firms is driven by size, the debt ratio, the current ratio and operating costs as well as the direct impact of the crisis itself. The findings suggest that the mechanism is driven by the response of the credit market to the creditworthiness of firms as it is by changing terms of trade.

Professor Ajay Das in the College of Education and Human Services is this week’s #RacerScholar. He contributed to the article, “Inclusive education a “rhetoric” or “reality”? Teachers’ perspectives and beliefs,” in Teaching and Teacher Education: an International Journal of Research and Studies.

Abstract

The aim of this interpretive study was to examine the perceptions and beliefs of general education teachers in Delhi, India, about the inclusion of students with disabilities (SWDs) in regular education classrooms. In this study, with hermeneutic phenomenology as its methodological framework, 15 semi-structured interviews of public school teachers in Delhi were conducted. Each interview, lasting from 30 to 45 min, was recorded and transcribed. The data were analyzed using a constant comparative method. The following conclusions were drawn: (1) Sociocultural ideologies on disability have affected the education of SWDs, and (2) systematic institutional barriers have led teachers to accept inclusion only “in theory.”

Designer Animals: Mapping the Issues in Animal Biotechnology is our #NewBookoftheWeek

51sn-3nia7l-_sx331_bo1204203200_Check out the #NewBookoftheWeek: Designer Animals: Mapping the Issues in Animal Biotechnology. This book is co-written by Conrad G. Brunk and Sarah Hartley.

You can find our copy of this book on the “New Book Shelf” in Waterfield Library.

Designer Animals is an in-depth study of the debates surrounding the development of animal biotechnology, which is quickly emerging out of the laboratory and into the commercial marketplace. This book innovatively combines expert analysis on the technology’s economic, professional, ethical, and religious implications while remaining firmly grounded in the ‘real world’ political environment in which the issue is played out.

Designer Animals uses non-technical language to explore the science behind animal biotechnology and the ethical frameworks at play in its surrounding debates. By investigating the interests of major stakeholders, including researchers on the cutting edge of science; mainstream and ‘alternative’ agriculture organizations; the animal welfare movement; and health care providers, patients, and researchers, the contributors illuminate the most important points of agreement and disagreement on this hotly contested topic.  – University of Toronto Press

She co-authored the article, “Internet of Things: Convenience vs. privacy and secrecy,” which appeared in the special issue, “The Magic of Secrets,” of Business Horizons.

Abstract

In this article we introduce the Internet of Things to the broad managerial community and explore one of its central tensions: convenience vs. privacy and secrecy. We clarify the ways in which IoT differs from Web 2.0 and then highlight opportunities, challenges, and managerial guidance. In addition, we explore the prominent issue of privacy and secrecy. Due to substantial increases in amounts of consumer-related data and their accessibility as well as potential tradeoffs in benefits associated with IoT and in properties of humanness associated with the consumer experience, the managerial issue of privacy is elevated to a level never before realized—perhaps on par with, or worthy of inclusion as an element of, the classic marketing mix.

‘Pandora’s DNA: Tracing the Breast Cancer Genes Through History, Science, and One Family Tree’ is this week’s #NewBookoftheWeek

9781613748602

Come check out the #NewBookoftheWeek at Murray State University, Pandora’s DNA: Tracing the Breast Cancer Genes Through History, Science, and One Family Tree, by Lizzie Stark. You can find it in Waterfield Library on the “New Book Shelf.”

Lizzie Stark shares her personal endeavor tracing the history Breast Cancer in her family’s DNA in this 2015 ALA Notable Books.

From the Publisher’s Website:

Would you cut out your healthy breasts and ovaries if you thought it might save your life? That’s not a theoretical question for journalist Lizzie Stark’s relatives, who grapple with the horrific legacy of cancer built into the family DNA, a BRCA mutation that has robbed most of her female relatives of breasts, ovaries, peace of mind, or life itself. In Pandora’s DNA, Stark uses her family’s experience to frame a larger story about the so-called breast cancer genes, exploring the morass of legal quandaries, scientific developments, medical breakthroughs, and ethical concerns that surround the BRCA mutations, from the troubling history of prophylactic surgery and the storied origins of the boob job to the landmark lawsuit against Myriad Genetics, which held patents on the BRCA genes every human carries in their body until the Supreme Court overturned them in 2013. Although a genetic test for cancer risk may sound like the height of scientific development, the treatment remains crude and barbaric. Through her own experience, Stark shows what it’s like to live in a brave new world where gazing into a crystal ball of genetics has many unintended consequences. – Chicago Review Press

Laura Liljequist, Ph.D. is our #RacerScholar this week!

She co-authored the article, “Specificity of the CAARS in Discriminating ADHD Symptoms in Adults From Other Axis I Symptoms,” which appeared in a special issue on the Assesment of ADHD in the Journal of Attention Disorders.

Abstract

Objective: In this study, we examined the sensitivity and specificity of the Conners’ Adult ADHD Rating Scale-Self-Report: Long Version (CAARS) in 113 adult clinical archival records.

Method: Forty-five clients had requested evaluation for ADHD, suggesting problems with attention, and 68 requested other services. To examine the CAARS’ ability to differentiate ADHD symptoms from other Axis I symptoms, it was compared with the Personality Assessment Inventory. Results: The two groups differed significantly on the weighted linear combination of the eight subscales of the CAARS, Wilks’s Lambda = .565, F(7, 105) = 11.56, p < .0001, with higher mean scores found among those requesting evaluation of ADHD. z-tests revealed the eight CAARS subscales were more highly correlated with each other, based on the average intercorrelation, than the nine selected clinical scales of the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI; Somatic Complaints [SOM], Mania [MAN], Paranoia [PAR], Schizophrenia [SCZ], Anxiety [ANX], Anxiety-Related Disorders [ARD], Depression [DEP], Borderline Features [BOR], and Antisocial Features [ANT]). Some unexpectedly high correlations were found between the CAARS and PAI clinical scales (MAN and SCZ).

Conclusion: The results of the present study were mixed, with some analyses yielding positive results with respect to the CAARS’ sensitivity and others suggesting poor specificity.

Two men face off against an all-powerful Navy—and the fate of the ocean’s most majestic creatures hangs in the balance.

War of the Whales tells the true story of how a crusading environmental attorney, Joel Reynolds, stumbles on one of the US Navy’s best-kept secrets: a submarine surveillance system that floods entire ocean basins with high-intensity sound. After marine biologist Ken Balcomb witnesses a mysterious mass stranding of whales near his research station in the Bahamas, he must confront an oath of secrecy he swore to the Navy in his youth.

When Balcomb and Reynolds team up to expose the truth behind an epidemic of mass strandings, the stage is set for a climactic showdown that pits admirals against activists, rogue submarines against weaponized dolphins, and national security against the need to safeguard the ocean environment.

He co-authored the chapter, “The Economic Impact of Tax Policy Incentives: An Analysis of the Gulf Opportunity Zone Act of 2005,” of Volume 21 of Advances of Taxation.

Abstract

Purpose – This research quantifies the economic impact of regional tax
policy incentives included in the Gulf Opportunity Zone Act of 2005.
Design/methodology/approach – This research utilized linear
mixed-effects modeling and multiple regression procedures with a matched
sample panel dataset from 2002 through 2008 containing real-world
county-level economic data.

Findings – The results indicated that the regional tax incentives
provided by the GO Zone Act did not generate significant increases in
key economic indicators included in this study. These tax incentives
were intended to spur economic recovery, but based on research findings,
they do not appear to have had the impact desired by Congress.
Research limitations/implications – Archival empirical data for the
affected region make this study possible but also limit the ability to
generalize these results to other regions. In addition, empirical
research utilizing real-world data can be prone to internal validity
issues that exist due to lack of environmental controls and other
possible causal factors.

Originality/value – This research adds to the existing literature by
using real-world county-level economic indicators to test the impact of
tax policy investment incentives at the regional level and minimizes
some of the issues addressed by prior empirical research and provides
evidence on the effectiveness of tax policy investment incentives at the
regional level.

‘Silver Screen Fiend’ by Patton Oswalt is our #NewBookoftheWeek

Our #NewBookoftheWeek is author Patton Oswalt’s bestseller, Silver Screen Fiend: Learning About Life From an Addiction to Film. You can find a copy of the book on the “New Book Shelf” in Waterfield Library.

41znv78oeql-_sx318_bo1204203200_

The instant New York Times bestseller from author, comedian and actor Patton Oswalt, a “heartfelt and hilarious” (USA TODAY) memoir about coming of age as a performer during the late 1990s while obsessively watching classic films at a legendary theater in Los Angeles. “[Oswalt has] a set of synapses like a pinball machine and a prose style to match” (The New York Times).

Between 1995 and 1999, Patton Oswalt lived with an unshakable addiction. It wasn’t drugs, alcohol, or sex: it was film. After moving to Los Angeles, Oswalt became a huge film buff (or as he calls it, a sprocket fiend), absorbing classics, cult hits, and new releases at the famous New Beverly Cinema. Silver screen celluloid became Patton’s life schoolbook, informing his notion of acting, writing, comedy, and relationships.

Set in the nascent days of LA’s alternative comedy scene, Silver Screen Fiend chronicles Oswalt’s journey from fledgling stand-up comedian to self-assured sitcom actor, with the colorful New Beverly collective and a cast of now-notable young comedians supporting him all along the way. “Clever and readable…Oswalt’s encyclopedic knowledge and frothing enthusiasm for films (from sleek noir classics, to gory B movies, to cliché-riddled independents, to big empty blockbusters) is relentlessly present, whirring in the background like a projector” (The Boston Globe). More than a memoir, this is “a love song to the silver screen” (Paste Magazine). – See more at: http://books.simonandschuster.com/Silver-Screen-Fiend/Patton-Oswalt/9781451673227#sthash.QU31maLD.dpuf

Add ‘Roper Center: Public Opinion Archives’ to your #MSULibraryBelt

2016.01.11#MSULibraryBeltNews agencies regularly refer to “the polls” as evidence of public opinion. Questions like, who should be the next president are asked to a sample of people and then news anchors report these results as a measurement of public opinion. But, what demographic of the US population is represented in these surveys? Do these polls accurately represent general public opinion? It is difficult to answer these questions if you do not know the demographic that was asked for this opinion. Wouldn’t it be great if you could look at the documentation of the polls and determine for yourself whether or not the demographic sampled on a particular topic really does represent the general public’s perspective on an issue?

Well, you can. The Roper Center: Public Opinion Archives is one of the world’s leading archives of social science data that specializes in public opinion surveys. Founded in 1947, the collection includes over 22,000 datasets and adds to it every year. It is the “largest public opinion library available anywhere in the world.”

According to the website, the Roper Center’s purpose is:

…to promote the intelligent, responsible, and imaginative use of public opinion in addressing the problems faced by Americans and citizens of other nations.  In an increasingly complex and interdependent global environment, the Roper Center hopes to foster increased international understanding and to promote cross-national research. Through the maintenance of the world’s largest archive of survey data, and through its programs, presentations, and advanced research, the Roper Center strives to improve the practice of survey research and the use of survey data in the United States and abroad.

  • Promoting the informed use of survey research and public opinion information.
  • Maintaining, and constantly enlarging, a web-based library of survey research and public opinion data.
  • Developing access tools for researchers to secure required information.
  • Increasing international understanding and promoting cross-national research on political and social issues.

Many give theoretical acknowledgment to the idea that the public must be heard accurately, but the Roper Center alone is building a comprehensive research facility to ensure that the views of the public are recorded properly. The Center brings individual surveys together, enabling any researcher to better grasp what public opinion is. Survey data housed in the Center’s extensive archive are made accessible to academic and policy researchers, the press, business, and others who are interested in poll findings…the Roper Center provides for a “public audit” of polling data and reports of public opinion. As a non-profit, non-partisan public opinion data archive, the Center is in a unique position to help clarify the public’s voice.

Professor Kevin Qualls is this week’s #RacerScholar. His paper, “The answer to trial publicity is a better question,” was published in volume 3 of the Journal of Criminal Justice and Legal Issues.

Abstract

Free-Press/Fair-Trial contests now happen in a new media age. Judicial remedies such as change-of-venue, sequestration, jury admonitions, and gag orders were fashioned in an era that included broadcast radio and television, an emerging cable television industry, and the traditional print media of newspapers and magazines. That content was, to some degree, geographically bound and temporary. Now those judicial remedies are applied in a new media age that extends the reach of traditional media in time and space while offering interactive capability. The efficacy of these remedies is in question. This paper provides an historical overview of how judicial remedies for pre-trial and trial publicity have developed along with the media industries that provide such publicity. A case study will provide insight into a recent Free Press-Fair Trial contest in which traditional judicial remedies were sought. Finally, the results of an experiment using exposure to media reports in the case study will be discussed. Specifically, reaction to a standard voir dire question regarding pre-trial publicity is measured on a traditional yes/no categorical response and on a semantic differential between not guilty and guilty. The mass media theories of hypodermic needle, two-step flow of communication and uses and gratification theories are compared to contemporaneous judicial estimation of the effects of publicity on the rights of the criminally accused.

‘Zombie Spaceship Wasteland: a book’ by Patton Oswalt is the #NewBookoftheWeek!

402px-patton_oswalt_by_gage_skidmore
Patton Oswalt (courtesy Gage Skidmore)

[Patton] Oswalt combines memoir with uproarious humor, from snow forts to Dungeons & Dragons to gifts from Grandma that had to be explained. He remem­bers his teen summers spent working in a movie Cineplex and his early years doing stand-up. Readers are also treated to several graphic elements, includ­ing a vampire tale for the rest of us and some greeting cards with a special touch. Then there’s the book’s centerpiece, which posits that before all young creative minds have anything to write about, they will home in on one of three story lines: zom­bies, spaceships, or wastelands.

Oswalt chose wastelands, and ever since he has been mining our society’s wasteland for perversion and excess, pop culture and fatty foods, indie rock and single-malt scotch.

Eric D. Smith, Ph.D. is our #RacerScholar this week!

fac-esmith20new20small

Assistant Professor Eric D. Smith from the Department of Psychology co-authored the paper, “How is theory of mind useful? Perhaps to enable social pretend play.” You can read the article in volume six of the open-access journal, Frontiers in Psychology.

Abstract

It is often claimed that theory of mind (ToM) is facilitated by pretend play (PP), or by a particular type of PP, social pretend play (SPP). Here we challenge that view, proposing instead that ToM might be useful for driving SPP, rather than the reverse. We discuss background theory, review pertinent studies, and explain why the “ToM first” view is at least equally likely. -from the article

Oliver Beckers, Ph.D. is our #RacerScholar

beckersThis week’s #RacerScholar is Professor Oliver M. Beckers in the Department of Biological Sciences at Murray State University. He contributed to the article, “Differentiation of Ovarian Development and the Evolution of Fecundity in Rapidly Diverging Exotic Beetle Populations,” which appeared in the Nov. 2015 edition of Journal of Experimental Zoology Part A: Ecological Genetics and Physiology.

Abstract

Fecundity is a fundamental determinant of fitness, yet the proximate developmental and physiological mechanisms that enable its often rapid evolution in natural populations are poorly understood. Here, we investigated two populations of the dung beetle Onthophagus taurus that were established in exotic ranges in the early 1970s. These populations are subject to drastically different levels of resource competition in the field, and have diverged dramatically in female fecundity. Specifically, Western Australian O. taurus experience high levels of resource competition, and exhibit greatly elevated reproductive output compared to beetles from the Eastern US, where resource competition is minimal and female fecundity is low. We compared patterns of ovarian maturation, relative investment into and timing of egg production, and potential trade-offs between ovarian investment and the duration of larval development and adult body size between populations representative of both exotic ranges. We found that the rapid divergence in fecundity between exotic populations is associated with striking differences in several aspects of ovarian development: (1) Western Australian females exhibit accelerated ovarian development, (2) produce more eggs, (3) bigger eggs, and (4) start laying eggs earlier compared to their Eastern US counterparts. At the same time, divergence in ovarian maturation patterns occurred alongside changes in (5) larval developmental time, and (6) adult body size, and (7) mass. Western Australian females take longer to complete larval development and, surprisingly, emerge into smaller yet heavier adults than size-matched Eastern US females. We discuss our results in the context of the evolutionary developmental biology of fecundity in exotic populations.

‘Making Conflict Work,’ by Peter T. Coleman & Robert Ferguson is the #NewBookoftheWeek!

51k2bvfyor3l-_sx331_bo1204203200_

Our #NewBookoftheWeek is Making Conflict Work: Harnessing the Power of Disagreement. The book is available on the “New Book Shelf” in Waterfield Library.

Conflicts at work are as inevitable as they are frustrating. In Making Conflict Work, Peter Coleman and Robert Ferguson’s leading experts in the field of conflict resolution address the key role of power in workplace tension. Whether you’re butting heads with your boss or addressing a direct report’s complaint, your relative position of power affects how you approach conflict.

Coleman and Ferguson explain how power dynamics function, with step-by-step guidance to determining your standing in a conflict and identifying and applying the strategies that will lead to the best resolution. Drawing on the authors’ years of research and consulting experience, the book gives readers effective strategies for negotiating disputes at all levels of an organization.

Making Conflict Work includes self-assessment exercises and action plans to guide managers, mediators, consultants, and attorneys through any conflict. This powerful approach can turn workplace tensions into catalysts for creativity, innovation, and meaningful change.

‘Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?’ by Jeanette Winterson is our #NewBookoftheWeek!

51a5gvfnx6l-_sx331_bo1204203200_

Our #NewBookoftheWeek, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal, by Jeanette Winterson is available on the “New Book Shelf” of Waterfield Library.

In 1985 Jeanette Winterson’s first novel, Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit, was published. It was Jeanette’s version of the story of a terraced house in Accrington, an adopted child, and the thwarted giantess Mrs Winterson. It was a cover story, a painful past written over and repainted. It was a story of survival.

This book is that story’s the silent twin. It is full of hurt and humour and a fierce love of life. It is about the pursuit of happiness, about lessons in love, the search for a mother and a journey into madness and out again. It is generous, honest and true. – See more at: Random House
