Abstract: This study is motivated by a puzzling finding from the third round of the Children of Immigrants Longitudinal Study (CILS). The data show that children of immigrants, as new and future parents, are putting their personal preference for English language aside and aspire to raise their children bilingually. This paper offers preliminary examination of this discrepancy through the examination of three hypotheses about cultural bridging, identity affirmation, and human capital. The data supports that latter two hypotheses: the second-generation parenting effectively bridges the linguistic needs of the first, second, and the third generations. Two conditions in immigrant families contribute to the saliency of bilingual aspiration in the second-generation parenting: the immunity of the immigrant family from the outside linguistic influences and the second-generation extensive use of ethnic languages with their parents. Ultimately, however, the second-generation personal preference for English and their ethnic language use with the parents emerge as the two competing forces defining whether children of immigrants would aspire to raise their children bilingually or would choose the English only path.

Abstract: The idea of distinct media generations differentiates groups of people according to media experiences and practices allegedly typical and formative for the thus identified generation. While some concepts see the “birth” of a generation with the emergence, diffusion, and adoption of media technologies others define media generations according to shared media experiences typical for specific cohorts. In either variant the peculiarities of generations are emphasized while commonalities are sidelined. Based on 30 years longitudinal, representative national survey data and 30 media biographical interviews we outline empirical incongruities between different media generations: Generations are inhomogeneous with regard to the adoption and subjective meaning of media in everyday life while practices in the youth are formative for the stability of generation membership over the life cycle. We thus discuss ways to work with a concept of media generations that is not essentially derived from birth: neither of technology nor of people.

Abstract: A number of studies have examined how cognitive schema of devotion to work or family or norms of intensive mothering have shaped the standards and expectations of professional women, but this work has not examined physicians, who have traditionally had even more explicit work-devotion norms, nor compared the experiences of men and women or cohorts who have entered the workforce after the Baby Boomers. This interview study of Baby Boomer, Generation X, and Millennial obstetrician-gynecologists finds that a gendered response to a schema of medical work-devotion exists only for Baby Boomer physicians. Later cohorts display more individualized responses, and Millennials as a cohort appear to have broadly rejected or profoundly modified their version of the schema of medical work-devotion.

Abstract: In some ways the United States has played a strange self-injurious game since 1991. It expected that the former rival accepted a new stage after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in which there were no more fundamental ideological battles and that DEMOCRACY in big capital letters was the undisputed victor. As the greatest champion of democracy this of course inferred that such acceptance also automatically declared the U.S. the world’s only superpower - the hegemon with no rivals. The intellectual community has been even more influenced by this perception. Barely any new thinkers or innovative minds have emerged from Generation X when it comes to studying and understanding the Russian Federation. One is hard-pressed to find a quote from anyone under 45 or anything not dependent on a ‘Soviet assumption’ for explaining political behaviour. Is it merely coincidence that almost every single Russian foreign policy maneuver today is characterized as some revanchist attempt to resurrect (symbolically or literally) the power and glory of the Soviet Union? Is it merely happenstance that Putin is evaluated only in terms of Soviet dictatorship and not even from the perspective of Machiavellian realpolitik? Whether it be the missile defense ‘shield’ in Poland and the Czech Republic, the bombings near the Sochi Olympics, Maidan and Eastern Ukraine, or events in Syria, what one sees are ‘analyses’ that could have been cut from the New York Times in 1965 and only needing the dates altered. No imagination, no innovation, nothing new whatsoever. This analysis explains the process that allowed an entire generation to become dullards on such an important region of the world and what is needed to bring about a true transformation on thinking about Russia.

Abstract: YouTube now holds the attention of more 18 to 34 year olds than any major cable network. As a result, advertisers capitalize on the popularity of YouTube content creators to broadcast branded information through the creator’s large audiences. A sample of 144 videos, representing 44 creators, were examined. From this dataset, themes were generated that pointing to ways in which credibility and truthfulness are depicted in sponsored and non-sponsored content across user- and professionally-generated content.
