Abstract: A number of six-atom cyclic phosphates, phosphonates, and phosphoamides have shown some potency against liver diseases. The mechanism of ring opening has been suggested to be important. Therefore, we are pursuing structural clues as to the stereochemistry of the ring-opening reaction. X-ray crystal structures have been determined for two representative cyclic phosphates. The space group of the structure of 5,5-Diethyl-2-phenoxy-1,3,2-dioxaphosphorinan-2-one is P 1 with a=6.425(4)Å, b=10.013(4)Å, c=10.680(4)Å, α=90.03(4)°, β=97.50(4)°, γ=90.09(4)°. Because the P-O bonds within the phosphate ring have the same bond length (1.54 ±0.04Å), ring opening is not anticipated to be stereospecific. In addition, the C-O bonds within the phosphate ring are equivalent (1.46±.03Å) suggesting again a lack of stereospecificity. Crystals of title compound, 5,5-Dimethyl-2-phenoxy-1,3,2-dioxaphosphorinan-2-one, were also of the P 1 space group with with a=6.317(3)Å, b=9.127(2)Å, c=10.580(2)Å, α=89.99(2)°, β=92.70(2)°, γ=90.02(2)°. The most notable interaction appears to be a van der Waal’s interaction between the phosphoryl oxygen on one molecule and a hydrogen atom bonded to the aromatic ring on a neighboring molecule.

Abstract: The purpose of this research is to provide an application for researchers and practitioners interested in a SPSS syntax program to determine an array of commonly-employed effect sizes and confidence intervals not readily available in SPSS functionality, such as the standardized mean difference and r-related squared indices, for a between-group design using descriptive statistics: means, standard deviations, and sample sizes.

Abstract: There is apparently no more socially constructed category than the ‘product category’. Technology vendors routinely promote and distinguish their offerings from those of their competitors and previous generations of products. This appears to be particularly the case in the software industry where, because of the lack of a physical product, product terminologies and classifications are constantly shifting. Between 1990 and 2002, for instance, vendors developed nearly 400 different concepts to describe their offerings (Pontikes, 2008). This is despite the fact that the actual differences between these variously named technologies remain amorphous. The complicated, ambiguous and often changing nature of product categories has not gone unnoticed by scholars within disciplines such as institutional theory, economic sociology and marketing. Rosa et al (1999), for instance, write that it is easy to forget that product categories are “…nothing more that theoretical constructs, developed and agreed to by market actors to make sense of producer and consumer behaviours” (64, 1999; see also Rosa et al 2002). Modern product markets and how we define them, they argue, are no longer as “constrained by time or place but instead are agreed-on loci of transactions with few if any physical markers” (my emphasis, 64, 1999). However, we wish to query the specific mechanisms identified. For instance, to simply identify product categories as ‘social constructions’ fails to appreciate the material processes also involved in their production, reproduction and use. Product categories are very much a ‘socio-technical’ phenomenon.

With this article, we join with the recent growth in interest by sociologists of science and technology in the material production of markets (Callon 1998, 2007; Mackenzie 2006, 2009). Here it has been persuasively shown how ‘devices’ make markets possible (Callon 1998, Muniesa et al, 2007). We investigate the role of a group of intermediary experts (the industry analyst known as the Gartner Group) and their production of a simple ranking device called the ‘magic quadrant’ (Pollock & Williams 2009). Our contribution is to show how this material device provides both ‘constraints’ and, adopting Gibson’s (1977) term, ‘affordances’, for these market intermediaries. In particular, we show how the material constraints of the tool force its authors to continuously update and reconfigure their conception of the market (in particular through generating new product categories). To say this in different words, the tool demands that its authors configure the market in ways that were not originally anticipated.

The wider aims of the paper are twofold: firstly, to give impetus to social scientists in understanding how highly simple devices like these have virtues in ‘performing’ marketplaces; secondly, to point to the enormous growth in dedicated intermediaries (experts and professionals, organizations and bodies) that are not solely reporting on the qualities of product categories but are creating those classifications.

Abstract: Health communications practices that privilege potential donors over patients run the risk of placing patients in a de-powered position. This donor-patient dilemma is evident in the rhetorical situation developed by Stand Up 2 Cancer (SU2C) in their 2008 telethon. Using Burke’s foundation of rhetorical study and Vatz’s construction of the rhetorical situation, this paper presents a rhetorical analysis of the telethon to explore how the event creates a general societal (mis)understanding of cancer.

"Detection of Response Bias in a Forensic Disability Setting with the MMPI-2 Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychology - Law Society, Westin Bayshore Hotel, Vancouver, BC, Canada, <Not Available>. 2018-10-17 <>
Publication Type: Symposium Paper
Abstract: The current study examined the utility of the MMPI-2 Restructured Form (MMPI-2-RF) over-reporting validity scales (F-r, Fp-r, Fs, FBS-r, and RBS) to detect symptom exaggeration in a forensic disability setting. MMPI-2-RF results from undergraduate students instructed to feign physical symptoms in the context of a disability evaluation were compared to individuals referred for evaluation by the Worker’s Compensation Board who were diagnosed with Pain Disorder and exhibited no evidence of response bias on symptom validity testing. Fs was the best validity scale in differentiating between the two groups. Implications for the results will be discussed.
