ANOTHER LOOK AT THE DEVELOPMENTAL RESEARCH

FAMILY COURT REVIEW, Issue 4 2001
Access Decisions for Young Children", Commentary on Kelly, Lamb's "Using Child Development Research to Make Appropriate Custody
Kelly and Lamb (2000) recently provided a summary of the attachment literature and a set of guidelines for visitation and custody for young children in divorced and separated families. Here, Solomon and Biringen review the same literature with an eye to critically evaluating these guidelines, especially the suggestion that more, rather than fewer, transitions between parents are appropriate for very young children. Three types of empirical findings raise questions regarding the appropriateness of Kelly and Lamb's guidelines. These include differences in the development of infant-mother and infant-father attachments, young children's sensitivity to overnight separations from the primary caregiver, and the possibility of infant preferences for primary versus secondary caregivers in times of stress. The authors argue that considerably more rigorous research is required before submitting Kelly and Lamb's suggestion to social policy. [source]


ANOTHER LOOK AT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN INNOVATION PROXIES,

AUSTRALIAN ECONOMIC PAPERS, Issue 3 2009
PAUL H. JENSEN
Shortcomings in the treatment of intangible investment in company accounts imply that there is no statistical collection for innovative activity which abides by the logic used for other economic activity data. As a consequence, analysts rely on innovation proxies derived from administrative and survey data. However, it is still unclear exactly how the different proxies are correlated, and whether the choice amongst different proxies matters. In the light of the innovation measurement, this paper takes another look at the relationship between different proxies of firm innovation. The results show that firm-level correlations between survey-based indicators and other proxies for innovation are highest for manufacturing firms and for product innovations. [source]

Another Look at the Process Capability Index

QUALITY AND RELIABILITY ENGINEERING INTERNATIONAL, Issue 2 2006
Min-Te Chao
Abstract Process capability indices (PCIs) have been widely used in manufacturing industries. In this paper, we take a very specific view that a proper value of the process capacity index (PCI) represents the true yield of the process. Following this logic, a universal PCI, Cy, is proposed and derived. The superiority of the new PCI is presented in theory and demonstrated through examples. Copyright 2005 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

European Monetary Union: the dark sides of a major success

ECONOMIC POLICY, Issue 46 2006
Charles Wyplosz
SUMMARY European monetary union THE DARK SIDES OF A MAJOR SUCCESS This paper revisits the debates that have surrounded the launch of a unique experience: the adoption of a common currency among developed countries. A striking aspect of this history is that, pressed by what they correctly identified as a window of opportunity, policy-makers crafted this complex project in a short period of time, largely eschewing inputs from the academic profession. Academic research, in turn, developed its own views, which turned out to be critical of some ley orientations, yet it generally recognizes that, in the end, the launch of the euro has been a major success. Over time, many of the academic criticisms have been taken on board, but not yet fully. The monetary strategy has been slightly amended, but it remains the subject of disagreements between the European Central Bank and monetary economists. Events have confirmed that the Stability and Growth Pact was ill-designed; its reformulation goes some way to address some of the concerns but not all of them. Its ability to deliver fiscal discipline is in doubt. Another look at the experiment highlights the gap between the principles laid out by those who designed the monetary union and the pragmatism that has prevailed thereafter. The resulting tension between principles and actions sometimes obscures the fact that the Eurosystem has acted wisely so far. The widespread perception that monetary policy is not as transparent as it should be and suffers from a lack of adequate democratic accountability is not just annoying. The general public, including politicians, sometimes blames the Eurosystem for Europe's poor growth performance since the adoption of the euro. This is unfair and could dangerously undermine the monetary union if the Eurosystem were to become the scapegoat for the slow and incomplete reforms that are needed to revigorate the euro area's economies. , Charles Wyplosz [source]


White-eyed blowout fracture: Another look

EMERGENCY MEDICINE AUSTRALASIA, Issue 3 2009
Patrick Mehanna
Abstract Orbital floor fractures have the potential to cause significant morbidity both in the short and long terms and commonly present to the ED for initial assessment. Although treatment of the majority of these injuries involves clinic review and possible later surgery, there is a specific subset that present to emergency clinically suggestive of a head injury. This subset, ,white-eyed blowout', usually occurring under 18 years of age, with a history of trauma and little sign of soft tissue injury, describes a trap door orbital floor fracture with herniation and acute entrapment of orbital muscle and is regarded as a maxillofacial emergency. The injury presents with marked nausea, vomiting, headache and irritability suggestive of a head injury that commonly distracts from the true aetiology. It requires prompt diagnosis and treatment to avoid permanent morbidity. We present three cases and discuss their management. [source]

Another look into the effect of premarital cohabitation on duration of marriage: an approach based on matching

JOURNAL OF THE ROYAL STATISTICAL SOCIETY: SERIES A (STATISTICS IN SOCIETY), Issue 1 2009
Stefano Mazzuco
Summary., The paper proposes an alternative approach to studying the effect of premarital cohabitation on subsequent duration of marriage on the basis of a strong ignorability assumption. The approach is called propensity score matching and consists of computing survival functions conditional on a function of observed variables (the propensity score), thus eliminating any selection that is derived from these variables. In this way, it is possible to identify a time varying effect of cohabitation without making any assumption either regarding its shape or the functional form of covariate effects. The output of the matching method is the difference between the survival functions of treated and untreated individuals at each time point. Results show that the cohabitation effect on duration of marriage is indeed time varying, being close to zero for the first 2,3 years and rising considerably in the following years. [source]


Yet another look at the reaction CH3 + H + M = CH4 + M

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL KINETICS, Issue 6 2008
David M. GoldenArticle first published online: 10 APR 200
Rate and equilibrium constant parameters for the title system have been evaluated. In general the format used by Baulch et al. (J Phys Chem Ref Data 2005, 34, 757) is compatible with the results. For Ar as the bath gas, the following parameters are suggested: k0 (cm6 molec,2 s,1) = 1.53 10,23T,2.17 with Fc = 0.876 exp(,T/1801) + 0.124 exp(,T/33.1). k, = 3.5 10,10 cm3 molec,1 s,1 as suggested in Baulch et al. (2005). However, since master equation calculations based on a hindered-Gorin transition state along with an exponential-down energy transfer model (Golden et al., J Phys Chem 2003, 107, 11057,11057) have been carried out herein and compared with data, the results can be stored in lookup tables, avoiding errors introduced by universal expressions, or values can be computed on the fly using the parameters for the master equation calculation given in the paper. 2008 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Bubbles and fads in the stock market: another look at the experience of the US

INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF FINANCE & ECONOMICS, Issue 3 2006
Piergiorgio Alessandri
Abstract This paper considers a standard present-value equity price formula where the discount factor is driven by the real return on short-term public debt. We discuss a state-space formulation by which prices can be decomposed into fundamental and non-fundamental components. The model is estimated on annual US data. The stochastic discount factor explains part of the volatility in equity values, but it is not sufficient per se to exclude the occurrence of near-exponential bubbles in the price-dividend ratio. These disappear if the dividend is replaced by a broader measure of the income flow generated by the firms. Copyright 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. [source]


Dependent and Accountable: Evidence from the Modern Theory of Central Banking

JOURNAL OF ECONOMIC SURVEYS, Issue 5 2000
Gustavo Piga
In this paper we take another look at the literature on central bank independence. We show that the representative-agent approach to monetary policy is seriously flawed and does not provide a sound basis for deriving institutional solutions to the inflationary-bias. We then argue that the political approach to monetary policy provides a better account of the inflationary-bias and that this has important implications for the set-up of institutional arrangements, like central-bank independence, and the role of contractual arrangements, like indexation. Central bank independence, if appropriately modeled, can fail to reduce inflationary pressures in plausible circumstances. We then identify some issues in the theory of central banking that have not been clearly resolved and we offer some intuition as to the way they could be studied. We conclude by showing some potentially worrisome implications for the future of the European Monetary Union. [source]

Observations on The "Vanity of the Philosopher"

AMERICAN JOURNAL OF ECONOMICS AND SOCIOLOGY, Issue 3 2008
Article first published online: 31 JUL 200, Charles R. McCann
The purpose of this essay is to identify certain points at which the presentation in Vanity appears incomplete or in error, especially as regards the interpretations of Mill and Spencer. It is shown that, while the authors have stated their case well, certain mischaracterizations, misstatements, and omissions seem to allow an alternative overall interpretation. However, another look suggests that, despite these discrepancies, the given interpretation is quite valid. [source]


Wheels in a land of camels: another look at the chariot in Arabia

ARABIAN ARCHAEOLOGY AND EPIGRAPHY, Issue 2 2009
M.C.A. Macdonald
A rock drawing in north-west Arabia shows a rider, a chariot and a foot soldier in battle. It is exceptional not only for its subject (at present unique) but for its use of a mixture of the artistic conventions employed in Arabian rock art and those used in Neo-Assyrian and Egyptian art. The three different parts of the composition have ,captions' in the Thamudic B script identifying the artists and the subjects, including the first occurrence of an Ancient North Arabian word for chariot.
