Esmonde Higgins - Politics As Intellectual Practice, Terry Irving

Terence H Irving, Dr (Terry)

Mental Health Parity: Implications For The State Of Florida, Bruce Levin, Ardis Hanson, Richard Coe, Ann Taylor Oct 2011

Mental Health Parity: Implications For The State Of Florida, Bruce Levin, Ardis Hanson, Richard Coe, Ann Taylor

Bruce Lubostsky Levin, DrPH, MPH

The federal Mental Health Parity Act of 1996 required insurers to offer the same benefits for mental disorders and substance abuse as they provide for physical disorders and includes parity for any annual or lifetime limitations and restrictions placed upon such coverage. To date, twenty-one states across the nation have enacted parity laws for mental health and/or substance abuse benefits. This paper summarizes the essential issues facing the state of Florida in the development of state mental health parity legislation, including an examination of the experiences of other states, a look at potential benefits, and a discussion of the ...


How Tolerable Is Delay? Consumers' Evaluations Of Internet Web Sites After Waiting, Benedict G.C Dellaert, Barbara E. Kahn Dec 1998

How Tolerable Is Delay? Consumers' Evaluations Of Internet Web Sites After Waiting, Benedict G.C Dellaert, Barbara E. Kahn

Marketing Papers

The effect of waiting times on consumers’ retrospective evaluations of internet web sites is investigated in four computer-based experiments. Results show that waiting can, but does not always, negatively affect evaluations of web sites. They also show that the potential negative effects of waiting can be neutralized by effectively managing waiting experiences. A conceptual framework and formal random utility model are introduced.


Agricultural Concentration: An Analysis By Commodity, Don E. Albrecht Dec 1998

Agricultural Concentration: An Analysis By Commodity, Don E. Albrecht

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

One of the most striking consequences of the industrialization of agriculture in the United States is the extent to which production is becoming increasingly concentrated on a relatively few farms. In this study, a human ecological perspective and nationwide census data at the county level from 1982, 1987, and 1992 were used to explore concentration in the dairy, hog, and beef cattle industries. Wide differences were found in the extent of concentration from commodity to commodity and from county to county. It was found that in counties where the production of one commodity is highly concentrated, the production of other ...


Perceived Barriers To Labor Force Participation Among Welfare Recipients In West Virginia, Melissa Latimer Dec 1998

Perceived Barriers To Labor Force Participation Among Welfare Recipients In West Virginia, Melissa Latimer

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

This research utilizes data collected by the Children's Policy Institute (CPI) of West Virginia in 1993 to identify perceived barriers to labor force participation for families with children receiving AFDC and/or Food Stamps. By merging data on West Virginia from several county-level data sources with the CPI data, this multi-level research identifies the major barriers West Virginia welfare recipients perceive as limiting their labor force participation (i.e., as explaining their current unemployment status). This research also examines how the barriers identified vary among welfare recipients.


Violence Prevention In Georgia's Rural Public Schools: Perceptions Of School Superintendents, Chet Ballard Dec 1998

Violence Prevention In Georgia's Rural Public Schools: Perceptions Of School Superintendents, Chet Ballard

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

A survey of school superintendents in 81 public school systems in rural Georgia was conducted to describe strategies being pursued to prevent school violence and promote a safe and disciplined learning environment. Among the surveyed superintendents, there was widespread recognition of school safety as a high priority item and evidence of use of law enforcement and technology to deter violence in schools. Descriptive data analysis suggests that school size and county economic conditions relate to school superintendents’ assessment of school safety and potential for violence. This research addresses a void in the literature on violence in rural schools and provides ...

Geographic Information Systems: A Tool For Rural Community Research, Sarah Dewees, Timothy Collins Dec 1998

Geographic Information Systems: A Tool For Rural Community Research, Sarah Dewees, Timothy Collins

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

Because of their traditional application in the environmental and geological sciences, geographic information systems are not usually considered to be useful tools for rural community research or analysis. The 1990 census made socio-economic data available at the block-group level, however, and this has facilitated the mapping of socio-economic variables in small areas. Insight, explanation, and understanding can come from seeing data in their spatial context. Citizen researchers in the Jackson County, KY, Empowerment Zone used block-group level data in maps of their county to study socio-economic patterns in their communities. This paper provides an example of a way to use ...


The Challenge Of Welfare Reform: Earnings And The Cost Of Living In Rural Kentucky, Julie N. Zimmerman, Lorraine Garkovich Dec 1998

The Challenge Of Welfare Reform: Earnings And The Cost Of Living In Rural Kentucky, Julie N. Zimmerman, Lorraine Garkovich

Journal of Rural Social Sciences

The passage in 1996 of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunities Act may well mark the single most consequential social legislation of this decade, especially for rural southern families, for it marked a fundamental shift in the welfare system in the U.S. No longer focused on hardship relief, cash assistance now has a work-first focus, with mandatory work requirements and lifetime limits for recipients. Underlying this legislation have been four assumptions about the nature of the labor market and welfare recipients' characteristics and opportunities. This article examines the utility of these assumptions, especially in the context of the regional ...

Ddasaccident165, Humanitarian Demining Accident And Incident Database

Global CWD Repository

On the morning of the accident the victim was working as a prodder man on an upward incline of 30o. The detector man got a reading, marked it and called to the victim to investigate. As the victim was excavating he saw a white metal tube about the size of a finger but did not recognise what it was. He continued to prod around it and he initiated the mine with the tip of his prodder

Discount For Potential Capital Gains Tax Liability, Neil Harl Dec 1998

Discount For Potential Capital Gains Tax Liability, Neil Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

Although it has been well established for years that discounts could be claimed on corporate stock (and some other ownership interests) for minority interest and nonmarketability, the courts until this year have resisted efforts to obtain a deduction for potential capital gains tax liability. However, two 1998 cases have been responsible for a break-through and have allowed discounts for potential income tax liability from liquidation in valuing corporate stock. Both Eisenberg v. Commissioner, and Estate of Davis v. Commissioner, involved stock valuation for federal gift tax purposes.
