Abstract: This article examines how members of a police department use the social condition of their local setting to resist institutional efforts toward standardization. Using a case study which draws on the historical and socio-political features of a city in economic decline, this analysis shows how these local conditions inform the cultural resources police officers deploy. It is argued that individuals connect these features with repertoires of uniqueness – what they call “the Blueville Way” – to justify, sustain and even perform a general resistance to political efforts to standardize the provision of policing services. Data for this study include 100 interviews and ethnographic field notes gathered over an 18 month period spent with a police department; in headquarters, patrol cars and the streets. This paper contributes an account for the significance of “cultural match”, which refers to the notion that practices are driven by the social and cultural context in which an organization is embedded, thereby impeding full compliance with industry standards and criminal justice policies that are deemed "incompatible".

Abstract: In light of recent developments in content and knowledge generation, we propose the concept of "one-way collaboration" to describe processes in which individuals pass their collaborative work from one person to the next rather than engaging in simultaneous discourse with one another. This form of collaboration, which is increasingly exhibited in online environments, offers certain advantages over traditional two-way collaborative interactions that place social pressures and other restrictions upon participants. Collaborative teams may engage in a mixture of one-way and two-way processes, falling along a spectrum between the two dichotomous poles. We intend to investigate the effects of these unique approaches by examining one-way and two-way collaborative processes on Wikipedia. Our study will show the relative impact of these forms of collaboration in terms of the progress made toward stable, "complete" articles depending on the relative balance of one-way and two-way collaborative processes in which contributors engage.

Abstract: It is not uncommon in the field of traffic engineering for two-way roads to be converted to one-way roads
and vice versa. In these situations, the traffic engineer is faced with the problem of selecting directions for all the one-way roads so that a strongly-connected network can be achieved. This problem is named the one-way road network problem. Graph theory and minimum traverse-time algorithms provide a model of the network. This coupled with minimum cut graph model form a model referred to as the one-way road network model for solving the above-mentioned problem. A real-life case study is used for testing and validating the model.

Two-way road networks are represented by undirected graphs and one-way road networks by digraphs. The problem then becomes one of converting an undirected graph to a strongly-connected digraph. A brute-force algorithm was initially used for obtaining feasible digraphs. In order to obtain a true-to-live, efficient one-way road network, the topological aspects of network efficiency incorporating realistic delay times at junctions is explored.

Dijkstra’s algorithm is modified to calculate the network shortest total travel time in the search for a suitable initial road network layout. With the selected road network layouts, flipping of the various one-way roads at identified critical junctions on the network is tested using a minimum-cut graph model. This allows efficient consideration of not only each direction but combinations of directions from different roads as well.

A theoretically optimal one-way road network for the given topology and traffic loading is obtained for the selected case study. The one-way road network is tested against the original two-way road network by means of simulation. Results of the simulation runs showed that the one-way road network performed better than the original two-way road network under given traffic load of the case study. This thus validates the one-way road network model.
