Abstract: In this paper we report findings from a survey of state legislators in which we ask them about the time they spend being a legislator. As expected, we find substantial differences in self-reported time on the job in different states. But we also find that legislators spend more time on the job than one might anticipate, given the "part-time" nature of many state legislatures. We discuss these findings in the context of the concept of legislative professionalism. Furthermore, we model time on the job as a function of a series of institutional-level and individual-level variables. We also explore the variety of activities involved in the legislative job.

Abstract: Transcendental philosophy flourishes under the prosperous reign of Frederick the Great in small, then Prussian Königsberg. Two centuries later, systems theory unfolds in Eastern Westphalia’s proverbially provincial Bielefeld under the last effects of post-WWII ‘economic miracle’. And yet, just like Kant, Luhmann’s autopoietic account of modern society takes up the Ant’s point of view, not that of the Cicada. Rejecting the aspiration-led ways of world-making celebrated in Luhmann’s contemporary Frankfurt (as in Kant’s contemporary Berlin), it replaces a rhetoric of promise for a discipline of taking-into-account. Poet Gottfried Benn’s motto “Erkenne die Lage!/Acknowledge the situation!” aptly summarizes this preference.

The task of thinking modern society – and not just economy/ecology – in terms of household and sustainability requires Luhmann to claim (against kantians, hegelians, marxists and the entire consensus of political philosophy) that the world of morals and politics as we know them is a world we have lost beyond recovery; that the function of ethics has shrunk to the duty of ‘warning against morals’; that modern society finds its ultimate reality not in shared values but in the simultaneous co-occurrence of numberless communications; that society results not from consensus maintenance but from communicative events giving rise to further communicative events.

Since Luhmann’s death (1998), the world of world society has changed dramatically. In the West, the turbulent contraction of margins of possibilities has cast the spell crisis on a growing number of issues, and spread a veil of ignorance over the fine line separating use and abuse. Jean de la Fontaine’s fable’s talented singer, the Cicada, has fallen into its winter silence. What has the Ant ‘social autopoiesis’ to suggest in these new conditions? I shall outline some of the challenges that program the upcoming redistribution of responsibilities between ‘politics’ and ‘society’: a rationality of codes, programs that cannot but imperil the values and doctrines of individual entitlement; a depoliticised concept of society; a citizen-individual deprived of her tenure as the ultimate constituent of social reality.

Abstract: U.S. adults are increasingly likely to report that they always feel rushed yet some research indicates that free time has increased over the past thirty years, raising questions about the relationship between leisure and time pressures. To date, few scholars have addressed the correlates of feeling rushed and little quantitative research has investigated the relationship between changing patterns of time use and feeling time pressured. In this paper, we review the evidence on changing patterns of free time and consider how the relationship between free time and feeling rushed has changed between 1975 and 1998. Since women more than men are likely to experience a time-crunch, we also consider whether free time affects women's and men's time pressure in different ways. Our findings suggest that women and men feel rushed more often in 1998 than they did in 1975. However, the increase was greater for women than men. In 1975, more free time, and more 'pure' free time were associated with lesser feelings of time pressure for both men and women, but women benefited more from their free time than did men. In 1998, Americans' sense of time pressure was still inversely related to their free time; however, men's time pressure was reduced more by increased free time than was women's. Multivariate analyses confirm these findings and suggest that marriage, employment and parenthood each increase women's but not men's time pressure. Hence, the change in how free time influences women's time pressure may be a result of the added demands placed upon women as they are increasingly responsible not only for maintaining the household and caring for children, but also for contributing to the family's financial well-being.

Abstract: India's rapid technological growth has given the nation the opportunity to combine its population explosion with impressive gains in economic investment and output. Furthermore, India is now a significant player in global politics, entering the nuclear arm race and continuing to counterbalance relations with neighbor nation Pakistan. How does India fare in coverage by the London Times and New York Times versus the coverage in the national Times of India? Is India taking over the region's political reins? Can India become the next superpower? This study will attempt to answer those questions through a content analysis of the press through Framing Analysis Theory. Media scholars have also explored the question of which factors come into play in influencing frames. News is a socially constructed product, not a reflection of an objective reality. News is not created out of a vacuum, but is influenced by a host of factors. The factors I will be analyzing in the content of news stories about India are of intrinsic or event-related value such as prominence, conflict, human interest, timelessness, proximity and deviance.
