Abstract: For much of the 20th century, the dominant forensics event in the United States was policy debate, while Individual Events were a relatively minor secondary thought for most competitive programs. Since the late 1970’s, this picture has changed dramatically. The I.E. side of the activity has grown substantially, while traditional policy debate has faltered and/or been transformed by the introduction of such alternate debate forms as Lincoln-Douglas and Parliamentary debate. And whereas once competitions offered both debate and I.E. events at a single unified tournament, the closing decades of the last century saw these forensics siblings drift apart from each other. More recently, we seem to be witnessing a rapprochement. Today, many tournaments offer students the chance to compete in both individual events and debate (most particularly Parliamentary debate) simultaneously. This gives rise to an important question: pragmatically, can we – and educationally, should we – encourage our individual events competitors to expand their work into the realm of Parliamentary debate? This presentation/paper explores this question by taking three primary steps: (1) briefly reviewing historical trends, (2) evaluating the benefits and drawbacks (both pragmatic and educational) associated with moving I.E. students into debate, and (3) providing coaches with some basic materials they can use to help interested I.E. students transition into the world of Parliamentary debate.

Exploring the Psychological Capital of Forensics Competitors" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 96th Annual Convention, Hilton San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, <Not Available>. 2019-06-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p429094_index.html>

Abstract: This paper applies the work of Dr. Fred Luthans creator of the ground breaking management theory of psychological capital. The theory has thus far received acclaim in the field of management and has even been put into use by major companies like the Gallup Corporation. Interestingly Luthans specifically advises against "come to Jesus" meetings and any form of punishment as motivation. However, the practicality of this theory has come into question. This paper will examine the author’s attempts to employ the methods of psychological capital and compare those findings with other more negative forms of feedback such as "coming to Jesus" meetings. Hopefully the conclusions of this paper will provide coaches with insight into how to best motivate and manage their students.

3. Ali, Hufsa.

Abstract: The livebearing western mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis) serves as a model organism for studying male-male competition because of high aggression levels in relation to coercive mating. This study seeks to better understand male competition as a mechanism of sexual selection in this coercive system. Previous work by Deaton (2008) and Cureton et al. (2011) showed that male body size, density and sex ratio affect male behavior and suggested that at a certain density, males likely trade-off mating for competition. However, these studies did not exclusively test male competition under incremental competitor densities to assess the potential trade-off. Thus, we attempt to identify a possible density “threshold” at which males trade-off mating with competition. If both exist, we expect a negative relationship between mating and competition at some density. To date, we have observed mating and aggression behaviors of individuals in a repeated-measures design under incremental competitor densities (ranging from 1 to 4). We scored both frequency of male mating behaviors towards the female and aggressive behaviors towards the competitors. Behaviors include chasing, biting, and gonopodial displays or thrusts. As predicted, mating behaviors increase with increasing male densities; however, aggressive behaviors towards other males did not. Mating behaviors continued to increase with competitor densities, indicating no trade-off between mating and competitive behaviors at the densities tested. Rather, there is strong correlation between mating and competitive behavior frequencies with increasing density. Future work will test higher densities and vary male body-size, which is known to influence mating success and competition.

Abstract: We study a stylized supply chain model with a single OEM that could outsource either to an independent supplier or to an integrated firm that carries out manufacturing in-house and competes with the OEM. We model different contractual relationships between the OEM and the firm it sources from.

5. Sundet, Vilde. "The Costs of Transnational Success: How Netflix went from Companion to Competitor during the Production of "Lilyhammer"" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ICA's 66th Annual Conference, Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk, Fukuoka, Japan, <Not Available>. 2019-06-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1104893_index.html>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: The success story of "Lilyhammer" is the story of a Norwegian television drama turning transnational, through an unlikely partnership between a national production company with international owners (Rubicon TV), a small nation’s public service broadcaster (NRK), and an international but American-based streaming service seeking new markets (Netflix). Yet, "Lilyhammer" is also a story of conflicts and tensions following the making of a television drama that was realised by players that differed greatly in audience scope (national vs. international), business model (licence fee vs. pay TV), publishing model (linear vs. on demand), and distribution practice (broadcasting vs. streaming). This paper analyses the costs of transnational success, through a case study of the relationship between Rubicon, NRK and Netflix in the production and distribution of "Lilyhammer". Drawing on literature on marketization of television drama, the paper seeks to address the various challenges of making international-oriented television drama.
