Abstract: Congressional election outcomes are a function of several variables. Incumbency, of course, looms large. Incumbent reelection rates in contemporary House elections routinely hover around 90-95 percent, and recent elections have seen a particularly meager number of challenger victories. Not all incumbents are equally secure, of course. Variation in incumbent vote share is a function of factors such as district partisanship, incumbent scandal, challenger quality and spending, and national political conditions (Herrnson 2004; Jacobson 2005). Most competition in House races occurs in open-seats. Without the name recognition and personal loyalties cultivated by incumbents, open-seat outcomes are more heavily influenced by campaign specific variables, such as issues and campaign spending, and by contextual features, such as district partisanship and national political conditions (Herrnson 2004).

Absent from models of congressional election outcomes is the impact of odd-year statewide elections. Such an omission is curious, since the conventional wisdom among political observers is that odd-year statewide elections (which five states currently use) do much to shape the political landscape on which the next year’s congressional elections are fought. In this paper, we explore the impact of odd-year statewide election outcomes in a state on U.S. House elections in the state during the subsequent year. In particular, we expect that a good party performance in an odd-year statewide election will produce fewer incumbent retirements for the favored party, more quality challengers taking on opposition party incumbents, and higher vote shares for the party’s candidates in the subsequent year’s U.S. House elections in the state.

Abstract: Turkey has experienced fundamental changes in education in the last thirteen years. The first significant change was executing 8-year continuous compulsory education reform in 1997. However, the implementation process of the reform was not smooth. There was not extensive support to the policymakers to make the process more effective. On the contrary, huge arguments took place before and during the process of implanting the reform. After thirteen years, a new reform is on its way on the agenda of the government: 12-year compulsory education. This study concludes that 12-year compulsory education is needed in Turkey. However, there are certain problems that should be addressed before implementing a new policy reform. How the current system achieved its goals? What are the problems that should be resolved before getting through a new education system?

Abstract: Reduced P3 evoked potential amplitude to target stimuli is an information processing deficit associated with adult antisocial behavior and is thought to reflect functioning of the temporal-parietal region of the brain. However, little is unknown about whether P3 reduction precedes criminal behavior. In this study, P3 evoked potentials during a visual continuous performance task were assessed at age 11 years, while criminal convictions and alcoholism were assessed at age 23. 73 individuals who became criminal offenders at age 23 were matched with 123 non-criminal individuals on gender, ethnicity, and social adversity. Results showed that P3 amplitude reduction at age 11 was associated with increased antisocial behavior at age 11. Criminal offenders showed significantly reduced P3 amplitudes to target stimuli compared to matched controls. Findings remained significant after controlling for alcoholism at age 23. Findings suggest that P3 reduction represents an early risk factor for adult offending.
