1. McAvoy, Gregory. "Merging Time Series Using the Kalman Filter and EM-Algorithm" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association, Palmer House Hotel, Chicago, IL, Apr 12, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-06-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p199151_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: In the procedure for merging time series outlined here, I describe a means to create a latent factor measured from different pieces of time series that are observed, even if some of the series have missing data. The Kalman filter and state-space methods provide the structure to model this problem, and the EM algorithm is particularly well-suited to the maximization task, since it is designed to handle missing data.

Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: Despite ideological differences, this paper argues that the critical media literacy skills advocated by critical cultural studies and the traditional language arts skills championed by the classical schooling movement represent complementary, not opposing, pedagogical tools. Accordingly, this paper identifies the specific points of confluent interests that make such a separation so lamentable, as well as shows how a coordinated curriculum can work to further the interests of both pedagogical models regardless of ideology.

5. Milewicz, Mark. and Milewicz, Chad. "The Merging of Citizenship and Consumerism: The evolving concept of the voter in the 21st century" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Southern Political Science Association, Hotel InterContinental, New Orleans, Louisiana, Jan 05, 2011 <Not Available>. 2019-06-17 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p448201_index.html>

Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: Political consultants in the US increasingly operate on the assumption that voters will respond to campaign strategies and tactics as consumers might respond to corporate marketing strategies and tactics. Adopting a mindset which perceives voters as consumers can likely have positive and negative consequences on policy development, the political process, and overall political discourse and decorum. As such, researchers are rightfully giving increasing attention to the extent to which the importation of commercial tactics is found in the political environment and the degree to which the concept of the citizen-consumer can be more broadly applied. Our research contributes to this line of inquiry by investigating the use of a particular consumer-focused marketing tactics in U.S. political campaigns. We use a content analysis of campaign websites from the 2010 midterm Congressional races to determine the extent to which campaigns in the U.S. exhibit a “customer service” mentality. In doing so, we provide an initial investigation of the extent to which political campaigns in the US utilize customer service tactics and provide a test of what some argue is the growing “consumerism” in the public sphere.
