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.

Reflections from American Indian Graduates of Educational Leadership & Administration Doctoral Programs" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the UCEA Annual Convention, Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, Denver, Colorado, <Not Available>. 2020-02-27 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1290123_index.html>
Publication Type: Symposium Paper
Abstract: According to Tenorio (as cited in Aguilera-Black Bear & Tippeconnic, 2015), “Educational sovereignty involves decolonizing the systems of a solely Western worldview education and specifically developing culturally responsive education systems to replace assimilationist models of education. It is considered imperative to the cultural sovereignty and survival of Indigenous communities”(p. 5). Drawing on this call to re-take control of education, the author explores the ways in which individual educational sovereignty has or may take shape within the confines of higher education, particularly for Indigenous students pursuing doctoral degrees in educational leadership and administration. In doing so, she presents initial findings from conversations with American Indian graduates of traditional Educational Leadership and Administration doctoral programs. Four (4) key questions are asked: 1. What prompted participants to pursue doctoral education? 2. To what extent, and in what ways, did the values and beliefs of the academy stand in opposition to participants’ own Indigenous values and beliefs? 3. How did participants work to reconcile moral, ethical, and spiritual conflicts experienced while navigating the academy? 4. How have participants applied or adapted lessons learned from their doctoral education to their work with Indigenous serving schools and organizations? 5. How might future generations of American Indian doctoral students work to transform or Indigenize not only the field of educational leadership and administration, but also the field of education at-large? Results are analyzed and reported using Pewewardy, Lees, and Clark-Shim’s Transformation Indigenous Framework (forthcoming).

Abstract: This paper present research findings from the US Army case study from a two year ESRC funded project on land forces transformation. In the post-Cold War period the US Army has been confronted by a number of challenges as it has sought to adapt and innovate in the face of the alteration of the political, social. strategic and military environment, as well of the increasingly introduction of new technologies, particularly information technologies, and societal changes. The US Army’s innovation efforts have been shaped by a perceived operational need to be more expeditionary in character and to develop new concepts consistent with the concepts of Network Centric Warfare and Effects Based Operations that have their origins with, respectively, US Navy and the US Air Force. A critical aspect of the US Army’s effort to respond to these issues is the Future Combat System, a radical rethinking of the organization of Army units designed to make one third of its combat capability more expeditionary while still sustaining combat lethality and survivability, while subsequently it has moved to alter its basic organizational unit structure from that of ‘divisions’ to that of ‘brigades’. This analysis examines for what has driven the US Army to rethink the character of its combat platforms and organizational structure, the factors which conditioned the alternative choices it perceived it had and the choices it ultimately took, and the relevant factors, such as organizational culture that have facilitated or inhibited innovation or change.

Abstract: This paper present research findings from the French Army case study from a two year ESRC funded project on land forces transformation in the US, Britain and France. In the post-Cold War period all three armies have been confronted with a number of challenges as they have sought to adapt and innovate in the face of the alteration of the political, social. strategic and military environment, as well of the increasingly introduction of new technologies, particularly information technologies, and societal changes. The French Army’s innovation efforts have been shaped by a perceived operational need to be more expeditionary in character and a political imperative to develop new concepts in line with the US military’s transformation programme. A critical aspect of the French Army’s effort to respond to these issues is the Scorpion ground combat system (which is analogous to the US FCS and UK FRES) and related re-organization of Army units designed to make one third of its combat capability more expeditionary while still sustaining combat lethality and survivability. This analysis examines for what has driven the French Army to rethink the character of its combat platforms and organizational structure, the factors which conditioned the alternative choices it perceived it had and the choices it ultimately took, and the relevant factors, such as organizational culture that have facilitated or inhibited innovation or change.
