Congressional Candidates' Photo Presentation On Their Campaign Websites, Vivian Ike Sep 2016

Congressional Candidates' Photo Presentation On Their Campaign Websites, Vivian Ike

International Social Science Review

This article uses gender role theory to explain the way male and female candidates appeared in their campaign websites photographs during the 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014 Congressional elections. The research question is “do male and female Congressional candidates appear dressed in suits in their campaign website photographs at different rates?” The analysis uses binary multivariate logistic regression to test the dependent variable (appear dressed in a suit), with gender being the main independent variable and region and party as dummy variables. The results report that both men and women appear dressed in business attire but the percentage of men ...


The People’S Republic Of China-European Union-Russian Energy Security Triangle, Joe Parson Sep 2016

The People’S Republic Of China-European Union-Russian Energy Security Triangle, Joe Parson

International Social Science Review

Russia, despite ongoing geopolitical and security conflicts, remains a dominant player in the world’s natural gas markets. However, cheap natural gas supply is finite and decreasing while their customers’ demand is increasing without a correlative price increase. European Union (EU) demand for Russian natural gas presents a complicated picture. The median and mode are decreasing while the mean is increasing due to a small group of countries drastically increasing import volumes. China, too, is seeking to increase their import quantities of Russian natural gas through the construction of multiple pipelines and joint ventures in LNG. This proves essential in ...


“Have We Not An Equal Interest With The Men Of This Nation?” Gender, Equality, And Genesis In John Locke's Political Thought, Daniel Skidmore-Hess, Cathy Skidmore-Hess Sep 2016

“Have We Not An Equal Interest With The Men Of This Nation?” Gender, Equality, And Genesis In John Locke's Political Thought, Daniel Skidmore-Hess, Cathy Skidmore-Hess

International Social Science Review

It is the contention of this paper that a better understanding of Locke’s political theory can be gained by comparative study of his later religious text, The Reasonableness of Christianity alongside his Two Treatises of Civil Government. These texts contain notable parallels and contrasts which we describe in this article. Specifically, Locke’s critique of Robert Filmer’s patriarchalist theory of absolute monarchy both address the implications of the biblical Fall from an original state of human kind in the biblical account of the Garden of Eden. Locke’s account of natural human equality, including gender equality in his ...


Praecipitia In Ruinam: The Decline Of The Small Roman Farmer And The Fall Of The Roman Republic, Jack Morato Sep 2016

Praecipitia In Ruinam: The Decline Of The Small Roman Farmer And The Fall Of The Roman Republic, Jack Morato

International Social Science Review

By 133 the Romans found themselves in command of a far-flung empire extending from Spain in the west to Asia Minor in the east, but they were forced to administer it with the government structure of a city-state. Rapid imperial expansion during the middle Republic strained nearly every aspect of the Roman system but none more so than the very foundation of Roman military strength—the small farmer. Spoils of war were channeled into agriculture by the landed elite, resulting in economic polarization and the displacement of independent labor in the countryside. This inquiry traces the socio-economic developments that led ...

Policy Point – Counterpoint: Mandating Law Enforcement To Receive Annual Certification In Cultural Diversity Through Critical Thinking, Christine Sereni-Massinger, Joseph Bawden, William Rowe Apr 2016

Policy Point – Counterpoint: Mandating Law Enforcement To Receive Annual Certification In Cultural Diversity Through Critical Thinking, Christine Sereni-Massinger, Joseph Bawden, William Rowe

International Social Science Review

Multiculturalism is rapidly growing in American communities. A law enforcement officer’s oath increasingly calls for the successful and effectual interaction with citizens from diverse backgrounds. Diversity is currently taught substantively in the academies. However, the academies’ diversity training can be enhanced with the application of critical thinking skills. Mandatory annual certification training in critical thinking can assist law enforcement officers to find multiple solutions to the problems they encounter on a routine basis and can lend to de-escalation as well as community and officer safety.
