Abstract: New title: The Role of Brokerage and Network Clientelism in Defusing Self-Determination Movements

This paper examines the forms of control used by the central Ukrainian government to defuse an autonomy movement in Transcarpathia, Ukraine, with an allusion to similar controls exerted to prevent separatism in Crimea. Transcarpathia is a remarkable example of government controls at work. After a December 1991 referendum in which 78 percent of the region approved a proposal for Transcarpathian autonomy, the issue disappeared from the political agenda within the space of a year. Rather than relying on a use of force, the Ukrainian central government exerted other kinds of controls on regional officials. Regional movements were defused via a brokerage mechanism, in which local officials beholden to the center by patronage utilized local resources to quiet voices demanding autonomy. The dynamics of the brokerage mechanism could be exercised within a particular network control structure. As outlined by recent work on empires in International Relations, a center can exert controls on a periphery through networks that require approval by the center – a hub-and-spoke isomorphic form. An examination of these center-periphery dynamics illustrates that actual control structures within a state may be far more important indicators of the ability to defuse separatist or autonomist movements than the structure of institutions.

Abstract: This study reports on teacher educators’ learning on-the-job. In this study, two novice teacher educators worked with an experienced teacher educator reflecting on the process of supporting elementary pre-service teachers in developing adult-level understandings of foundational mathematical ideas. Using reflective teaching-learning cycles and incorporating ideas from lesson study we reflected on our experiences teaching a mathematics content course for pre-service elementary teachers via problem solving. A dominant theme from our preliminary data analysis indicates that the mathematics knowledge for teaching needed by teacher educators is even more complex when teaching via problem solving than in more traditional instructional approaches.

Abstract: This study outlines the portrayal of tobacco issues in the US press over one year. Press coverage is mapped in order to understand its impact on key tobacco use behaviors and policy decisions. Our textual analysis incorporates 6,332 newspaper articles from 350 U.S. daily newspapers.

Newspaper coverage reflects events occurring nationally, and at the state and local levels. It represents attitudes on the part of both the public and newsmakers. The press’ treatment of issues shapes popular attitudes, acts as an agent of public education, and plays an important role in determining the policy agenda (Baillie, 1996). Previous research of the coverage of particular tobacco issues has revealed patterns in terms of its content, slant and frame (Magzamen et al, 2001; Malone et al, 2000), but as yet, however, there has been little comprehensive consideration of press coverage of tobacco, and the potentially competing messages that such coverage may convey.

"Reducing Marijuana and Alcohol Uptake Via In-School Social Marketing and Participatory, Community-Based Media Efforts" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Sheraton New York, New York City, NY, Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-11-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p11694_index.html>

Abstract: Objectives. This study tests the impact of an in-school media/social marketing campaign, in combination with a participatory, community-based media effort, on marijuana, alcohol and tobacco uptake among middle-school students.
Methods. Eight media treatment and eight control communities throughout the U.S. were randomly assigned to condition. Within both media treatment and media control communities, one school received a research-based prevention curriculum and one school did not, resulting in a crossed, split-plot design. Four waves of longitudinal data were collected over two years in each school and were analyzed using generalized linear mixed models to account for clustering effects.
Results. Youth in intervention communities (N = 4216) showed fewer users at final post-test for marijuana (odds-ration [OR] =.49, p<.05), for alcohol (OR=.39, p<.05), and, marginally, for cigarettes (OR=.47, p<.10 [two-tailed]). Latent growth trajectory results varied by substance outcome and by analytic strategy.

Abstract: Despite concerns about online health information and efforts to improve its credibility, how users evaluate and utilize such information presented in web sites and online discussion groups may involve different evaluative mechanisms. This study examined credibility and homophily as two underlying mechanisms for social influence with regard to online health information. Employing a 2 (website vs. discussion group presentation) x 2 (didactic vs. narrative style) x 2 (instrumental vs. coping advice) between-subjects factorial design, we found that homophily grounds the credibility perception and drives the persuasive process in both web sites and online discussion groups. Additionally, the more positively the online health information stimuli were evaluated as being, the more likely people were to adopt the advice offered in that particular piece of information.
