1. Lincoln, Alisa. and White, Andrew. "A Re-Examination of Frequent Users Of Psychiatric Emergency Room Services" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 10, 2006 Online <PDF>. 2019-09-18 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: The psychiatric emergency room (PER) plays an increasingly important role in the community mental health system. Research regarding individuals who repeatedly use PER services has been hampered by the lack of a grounding theoretical construct from which to examine PER service utilization. The current study uses two years of data from an urban PER to examine the impact of four different definitions of repeated PER service use. Results suggest that predictors of PER service utilization differ depending on the definition of frequent service use applied. For example, Hispanic ethnicity was predictive of using the PER for times or more in 12 months, but was not predictive of other definitions. African-American ethnicity was predictive of using PER services twice or more in 12 months, and four times or more in 12 months, but was not predictive of using PER services six or more times in 12 months or being two standard deviations above the mean number of PER visits.This variation in results across definitions highlights not only the need to be mindful of definitions when examining PER service utilization data, but also the need for increased integration of theory driven models to better inform research, intervention, and practice when attempting to understand individuals who are repeat users of services.

2. Riddle, Karyn. "Always on my Mind: Exploring How Frequent, Recent, and Vivid Television Portrayals are Used in the Formation of Social Reality Judgments" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, May 21, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2019-09-18 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Prior research has found consistent support for the heuristic-processing model of cultivation effects, which argues that cultivation effects can be explained by the availability heuristic. The present study presents an experimental test of the heuristic-processing model and tests the impact of frequency, recency, and vividness on construct accessibility and social judgments. 223 students participated in a 2 x 2 x 2 experimental design varying the frequency of exposure to violent TV programs, the level of vividness in the programs, and the timing of the dependent measures. Dependent measures were accessibility (reaction times) and social reality beliefs. Results showed that reaction times were largely unresponsive to most of the independent variables. Although there were no main effects for frequency on social reality beliefs, there was a significant interaction between frequency and vividness on beliefs: people watching vivid violent media gave higher estimates of the prevalence of crime in the real world in the 3x viewing condition than those in the 1x viewing condition. In concluding, it is argued that this study has important implications for the heuristic-processing model, cultivation theory, and vividness.

Abstract: International academic journal Acta Crystallographica Section E announced on its website on December 19, 2009 that they repealed 70 counterfeit articles on the journal once and for all and piped off Jinggangshan University. These 70 articles are authored by two lecturers Zhong Hua and Liu Tao from Chemistry College and Engineering College of Jinggangshan University respectively.
Academic cheating is one of the big reasons that restrict research accomplishments in Chinese academic community. With this case study, people can learn about academic quantitative evaluation which is one of the important reasons for the appearance of academic cheating in the Chinese colleges and universities and academic community. How to define academic quantitative evaluation? Academic quantitative evaluation is to check which publication the papers are on or the quantity of papers as the standard but not value of the academic results to appraise the job title and promotion. The paper can be a reference to some extent for Chinese government departments to formulate and modify relevant administration regulations and punishments for academic improper.
The paper provides in-depth views followed with the case study. The main views in the paper are: 1. it is important to keep academia clean with punishment of academic improper by means of judicature if necessary. For plagiarism in the academic cheating cases, procuratorial organ should be involved in for investigation. Plagiarism is against Intellectual Property Law. Additionally, it defrauds a great amount of scientific research state funds, which is also constitutes fraud. 2. Our colleges and universities and academic community should learn that water down administration intervention capacity, change administration-oriented resource setting, return to academic quintessence, implement administration of academic quintessence and set up academic community values are right approaches to keep academia clean.

4. Feldman, Cory. "Frequent Arrestees and the Institutional Circuit" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-09-18 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Using ADAM II data from Manhattan, this paper examines the extent to which people who are frequently arrested also consume other public services including substance abuse treatment, shelters, emergency rooms, and psychiatric hospitals. The case control design seems to indicate that the most costly consumers of public resources also present a lower risk to public safety, committing misdemeanor or city violation crimes as opposed to felonies, or violent offenses. This study suggests alternatives to the institutional circuit for people who are frequently arrested.

Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: This presentation will spotlight Denver, Colorado, which has received technical assistance from the Center for Effective Public Policy since 2011 to identify jail cost and population drivers. Analysis of data from 2009 to 2013 identified 300 individuals who cost the city an average of nearly $38,000 per year in jail, arrest, court, and medical expenses, totaling over $11 million per year. To address this frequent front-end user population, Denver has implemented an innovative program that includes a weekly recovery court, supportive housing, and wraparound case management services. Our discussion will highlight Denver’s successes, lessons learned, and program performance measures, such as number of participants served, reductions in jail bed days and other system usage, and cost savings.
