"Ethnic Differences in Intention to Enroll in a State Organ Donor Registry and Intention to Talk With Family About Organ Donation" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, May 21, 2008 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2018-11-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p230437_index.html>

Abstract: The current study compared African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, and Caucasian Americans for their intentions to enroll in a state organ donor registry and to talk with family about organ donation. The overall results showed that attitudes and subjective norms from the Theory of Planned Behavior were significantly related to intention to enroll while perceived behavioral control was not. Attitudes, subjective norms, and perceived behavioral control were significantly related to intention to talk with family. The differences among ethnic groups were small, but the relationship between attitudes and intention to enroll was stronger for Asian Americans and weaker for African Americans than for Caucasian Americans. The implications of these and other findings are discussed for organ donation campaigns.

Abstract: Addressing concerns about the growing educational gap between urban and rural youth, the State has pursued an aggressive strategy to improve rural teacher quality. State efforts have focused primarily on increased professional development and the recruitment of new teachers. In this paper, we investigate a critical and poorly understood dimension of improving teacher quality: teacher retention. In doing so, we advance the current state of knowledge on teacher retention by differentiating between two types of teacher career intentions: changing schools and changing careers. Notably, we adopt a self-categorization perspective to examine the interplay of organization-specific factors and occupation-wide factors that may condition teachers’ career intentions. First, we use a representative sample of 2,355 public primary and junior secondary school teachers gathered in rural Gansu province in 2007 to describe rural teachers’ career intentions. Next, we estimate a series of multinominial regression models to examine 1) the contextual factors that may condition teacher career intentions and 2) whether the factor that matter differ for changing schools and changing careers. Our results indicate collegial support and fair institutional governance are associated with a lower risk for both intentions. However, higher levels of leader-member exchange and material support only conditioned the intention to change schools while salary satisfaction and intrinsic motivations mattered only for the intention of changing careers. We conclude with a discussion of policy implications such as institutional structures and relationships designed to support teachers beyond the first few years of teaching as well as the importance of principal-teacher relationships.

Abstract: When Isabella pleads for Angelo’s life at the end of Measure for Measure, she doubly invokes the deputy’s intentions as reason for exculpation. Arguing that, at first, “a due sincerity governed his deeds” and that, later, even at his worst, “his act did not o’ertake his bad intent,” Isabella figures intention – whether instantiated or unrealized – as crucial for evaluating Angelo’s actions. Frequently dismissed as mere casuistry, Isabella’s speech sits uneasily within distinct ethical systems. A performance redolent of deontological ethics, Isabella’s plea relies heavily on a consequentialist epistemology, one that seems – particularly given the nature of Angelo’s vices – to run counter to Christian notions of transgression. Taking Measure for Measure as a test case, this paper examines Shakespeare’s use of intention as a locus for not only synthesizing Epicurean and Christian ethics but also reimagining the standards of moral evaluation in an era dominated by Aristotelian virtue ethics.

Abstract: The recent studies investigating the effect of gender equity in the family on fertility intentions in countries with low fertility have paid less attention to ‘how’ the extent of gender equality influences fertility intentions to remain childless or not to want any more children. This study will bridge this gap in the literature by proposing a conceptual model examining the direct, indirect, and total effects of gender equity on fertility intentions. The model, informed by theories of gender equity and planned behavior, is based on the key assumption that the influence of gender equality on fertility intentions remains largely indirect through three proximate determinants of fertility intentions: ‘attitudes to having a/another child’, measuring people’s internal evaluations regarding whether having a/another child will have a positive or negative outcome for them; ‘perceived norms’, measuring one’s perceptions of external social pressures for having a child, and ‘perceived behavioral control, measuring people’s perceptions about the extent of their access to personal, social and economic resources, required for having a child. This assumption is examined by using data from the 2012 Tehran Survey of Fertility Intentions and utilizing structural equation modeling methods.

Abstract: The Web has become a vital news medium but making consumers pay for online news remains a challenging task. With a national survey conducted in the United States, this study sought to understand paying intent and demand from a media economics perspective. Focusing specifically on local online newspapers, the results of this study expand the understanding of paying intent, price elasticity of demand, and predictors for paying intent. Important economics and managerial implications are discussed.
