Abstract: The gendered power model (Pratto & Walker, 2004) considers gender inequality to be based in four kinds of power: use of force, resource control, asymmetry in social obligations, and gender ideology. The model predicts that gender inequality in societies is due to men using force more often, controlling more material resources, and being advantaged by sexist ideology, and by women being more obliged to others. The model also holds that gender inequality is stabilized when men's domains of power (e.g., resources) are more fungible, or more easily used to gain other kinds of power (e.g., legitimacy) than women's domains of power (e.g., obligations). The present study 1) devised a measure of these four kinds of power as they pertain to adults’ daily life; 2) tested whether they vary between husbands and wives; 3) examined whether there are differences in fungibility for men’s and women’s power bases.
Our sample included 139 married Andalucian couples (30-65 years old) with children. Half were couples where both members have a paid job outside home and in the other half only husbands had paid jobs.
We followed the procedures recommended by Kenny, Kashy, and Cook (2006) for analysis of data from distinguishable dyads to account both for participants’ gender and for their marriage, because one might expect members of the same couple to be more similar than randomly paired men and women. Results showed that regardless of whether they have a paid job, women are poorer than men in all bases of power, except in social obligations. Correlations among power bases within genders showed gender differences in power fungibility. For wives, those with more obligations endorsed sexist ideology more and had fewer resources. For husbands, obligations were unrelated to any other kind of power, but more sexist husbands were more likely to use force against their wives. Further, although the same model fit both genders, the Omnibus test of distinguishability demonstrated that husbands and wives were highly distinguishable rather than interchangeable or equivalent. The ways that these forms of power play out in marriages and regarding marital satisfaction are discussed.

Abstract: The resolution of conflicts in the 21st century will depend much more on the judicious use of a combination of soft and hard power to exercise ‘smart power’ in zones of conflict, especially when there are large asymmetries of power between the internation

Abstract: Power-laws, or a relationship between two variables that is scale invariant, is a type of distribution that describes a large number of natural and social phenomena, from natural disasters to stock market crashes. This analysis examines whether or not terrorist events and casualties follow a power-law distribution. Tested on a large, open-source terrorism dataset provided by the Institute for the Study of Violent Groups (ISVG), separate models for both casualties and incidents were fitted, with findings indicating that power-law distributions were not the best fit for the data. This finding, using a much larger dataset, is contrary to previous studies' findings and suggests that they need to be reevaluated. Additional methodological implications are also developed, including problems dealing with the elimination of outliers.

Abstract: We develop a powerful novel statistical method to identify genetic variants related to disease..
The new method uses wavelet-transforms on genotypes, with minimal degrees of freedom, to construct a weighted test statistic which captures significant information from multiple gene loci.Simulation is used to compare the power of the new procedure to existing, less general methods. The new statistic has significantly improved power.
