He launched, then advised the Seattle Newspaper Guild throughout its successful 1936 strike against William Randolph Hearst.

"An Empirical Test of Terrie Moffitt’s Developmental Taxonomy using Group-Based Developmental Trajectory Modeling" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Criminology (ASC), Los Angeles Convention Center, Los Angeles, CA, Nov 01, 2006 <Not Available>. 2018-09-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p125375_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: The cause of antisocial behavior has been the focus of many theorists over the past few hundred years. Developmental theories of crime attempt to explain involvement in criminal behavior and also within them over different stages of their lives. Terrie Moffitt (1993) hypothesized that there will be two types of offenders. The most striking difference between the types of offenders is their continuity and discontinuity of antisocial behavior across age and situation. Life-course-persistent offenders begin their antisocial behavior at a young age and continue to offend over their lives. Adolescence-limited offenders are involved in criminal behavior only through their adolescent years. The two types of offenders have very different developmental trajectories and causal factors. Life-course-persistent offenders begin manifesting antisocial behavior in infancy or childhood and their etiology lies somewhere in a physiological and/or environmental deviance. Adolescence-limited offenders begin their deviant behavior in adolescents due to a perceived disconnect between their biological and social maturity stages. This study seeks to empirically test Moffitt’s developmental taxonomy of delinquency. It will employ group-based trajectory modeling techniques, which have been used in over 50 peer reviewed publications over the past 10 years, to model growth trajectories from kindergarten through tenth grades. Data from the Johns Hopkins Prevention Intervention Research Center's classroom-based, universal preventive intervention trials in Baltimore will be used to test Moffitt’s taxonomy. Her hypotheses about the predictors of group membership will also be explored.

5. Hefner, Veronica., Drogos, Kristin. and Bond, Bradley. "The Terri Schiavo Case: Media Effects on End-of-Life Decision Making" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Dresden International Congress Centre, Dresden, Germany, Online <PDF>. 2018-09-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p92604_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: We administered questionnaires to 68 undergraduate students three months after the death of Terri Schiavo to assess the content and context of end-of-life (EOL) decision-making conversations that they had participated in during the year prior to the study. We also obtained scores of media consumption and the degree of knowledge and interest in the Terri Schiavo case. Results show a positive effect of media consumption. Higher media consumers were significantly more likely to have engaged in an EOL decision-making conversation. Consumers of radio news were especially affected. Interest in the Terri Schiavo case was also significantly correlated with participation in an EOL conversation. While media effects literature has routinely focused on the negative aspects of media consumption (e.g., negative body image, violence), this project brings forth a positive effect by showing that heavier media consumption can lead to important and necessary conversations about sensitive topics like EOL decisions. The behavioral impact of agenda setting and the role of exemplars are discussed.
