Abstract: Prior studies that have explored the economic significance of city networks have failed to appropriately link theory and method, leading to analyses that examine a space of vague flows. In this paper, I discuss the theoretical and methodological requirements of research in this area, offering a solution for the theory–method gap. Using data on air traffic patterns among 115 US metropolitan areas in 2006, I demonstrate that excluding connecting flights and non-business passengers is more consistent with theoretical conceptions of city networks. Examination of this theoretically motivated city network reveals a core-periphery structure, where the strength of flows between pairs of cities depends on their economic similarities and gravity-type effects, but not on the characteristics of the individual cities themselves.

Abstract: The films recorded in Tsax̱is (Fort Rupert, BC) in 1930 by Boas with the participation of many individuals from the Hunt, Wilson, Williams, Knox, and Martin families demonstrate the strength of family privileges that continue to this day. This presentation discusses the critical importance of family histories, the ties to past generations, and how they are upheld today through the continuing traditions of dance, song and ceremony. Being a descendant of the film’s participants makes this project one of both personal and community importance.
Our ancestors and the cultural generations behind us communicated and celebrated their connections, created space and time for one another, and they set things right through the potlatch and feast traditions of our people. Through a cultural spirit of generosity they have deliberately recorded some of their knowledge and ceremonies for future generations. This was done at great personal risk to each of the original participants given that in 1930 practicing our ceremonies was outlawed by the Canadian government. This project has allowed us to hear the audio recordings of our ancestors, revitalize some of the traditional songs they composed for future generations, and enhance cultural ceremonies that continue today in our communities. Bringing the gifts of these images, songs and archival materials back into Indigenous communities through direct and intentional cultural connections is central to this project. The recordings remind us of our close family connections and the hereditary privileges that are the foundation of our culture.

Abstract: For the past 40 years, entrepreneurs and researchers have assumed that entrepreneur networks are important and beneficial for startup ventures. Research has shown that startup ventures benefit from entrepreneur networks in various ways ranging from establishing credibility in the market, accessing competitive information and opportunities, to accessing skilled people and establishing competitive collaborations. This study takes this notion further by testing whether these benefits actually translate into tangible financial outcomes for a startup. For this purpose, the study integrates two extensive databases that have not been studied together in previous research: Crunchbase.com, which provides extensive information on the financial success of startup companies, and LinkedIn, which provides extensive social network information of founders. The analysis revealed that several variables in LinkedIn profiles were positively correlated with the amount of funds raised by startup companies establishing a link between social networks and entrepreneurial success.

Abstract: This report summarizes findings from the study of 4 prospective secondary school teacher’s connections between university geometry curriculum and secondary geometry. Connections are defined as knowledge and beliefs that link one’s construct of university curriculum to his or her construct of secondary school geometry curriculum. Transcripts of individual interviews conducted with participants and participant generated maps of secondary geometry curriculum constituted the data for the study. Findings include connections categorized as positive or negative in reference to the promotion of future growth in knowledge and beliefs needed for familiarization of secondary curriculum and effective implementation of standards based mathematics teaching.
