Abstract: Based on the network agenda-setting (NAS) model, this research aims to reveal the links between agendas in the domains of politics and media. Also referred to as the third level of agenda-setting theory, the NAS model suggests that the salience of the network relationships among issues can be transferred from the news media to the public. The model draws on the potential offered by network analysis, therefore enables the analysis of issues as a bundle. This exploratory research carries the NAS model to Twitter, and expands its context to include the political agenda. It questions whether the media in Turkey can still have an effect on political discourse in a setting where direct political pressure is a growing issue of concern. Findings from the Twitter accounts of the MPs in the Turkish Parliament and a large variety media accounts are compared to explore the interrelations among the domains of politics and media.

Abstract: In this paper, we provide a systematic study of those spaces in which disjoint H-sets can be separated by disjoint open sets in a topological space. This introduces four new separation axioms that lie strictly between T2 and T3 spaces. This is joint work with Professor Jack Porter.

Abstract: In this article, we examine the patterns of association among a number of different factors that may contribute to differences in the initial baseline level of subjective well-being among young people in transition to adulthood. Although we know that life satisfaction is relatively stable throughout adulthood with few factors leading to long term increases or decreases in the baseline of life satisfaction over time, we do not know very much about the determinants of baseline life satisfaction. Our own study addresses this question by using data from the adult and youth questionnaires of the German Socio-economic Panel to examine these factors are related to the initial assessment of life satisfaction by the individual in late adolescence. In most cases, factors that predict adult well-being also predict the level of well-being reported by the adolescents in our study. We found that personality traits were associated with subjective well-being and that consistency existed across different domains of satisfaction, specifically satisfaction with life and satisfaction with grades. Based on a wide range of measures, we found a strong pattern of association between the subjective well-being of the adolescents and variables that measured different dimensions of the experiences and assessments of parents regarding economic hardship, including parental unemployment and parental worries about financial situation. The quality of parental-adolescent relationships was also a predictor of adolescent well-being.

"How Firms’ Wage Setting Shapes Income Inequality: Fading Pay-Setting Institutions and the Takeoff in Benefit Inequality" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Hilton New York Midtown & Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel, New York City, Aug 09, 2019 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2020-01-29 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1513330_index.html>

Abstract: The fading of pay-setting institutions is one of the most important explanations for America's rising income inequality, yet little is known about this relationship at the workplace level, in particular for employer-provided benefits. The paired objects of this paper, therefore, are the relationship between fading pay-setting institutions and the takeoff in benefit inequality, and the role of workplaces in the upward trend in the dispersal of benefits compared with wages. For these aims the paper utilizes rather unique linked employer-employee administrative data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Employer Costs for Employee Compensation (ECEC) microdata on wages and voluntary benefits costs. The paper reveals that between 1982 and 2015 organizational income polarization in benefits was worse than in wages, supporting this paper’s argument that benefits determination is more organization embedded than wages. It further shows that workplace-level pay settings make a greater impact on the level of and inequality in benefits than do wages. Consequently, we find that the decline in labor unions and the liberalization of employment practices (i.e., the proliferation of non-standard employment relations and the decline of employment by large firms) partly explain why benefit inequality increased at greater than twice the rate of wage inequality.
