Cartographies Of Debt: Auto Title Loans And Spatial Inequality, Michihiro C. Sugata 2019 Humboldt State University

Cartographies Of Debt: Auto Title Loans And Spatial Inequality, Michihiro C. Sugata

Humboldt Journal of Social Relations

Despite being a decade removed from the 2008 Financial Crisis, an alarming number of Americans are turning to alternative finance service providers (AFSP) for “short term” loans. These loans typically carry triple digit interest rates and can contribute to exacerbating the financial precarity of the borrowers. This article investigates the relationship between the spatial distribution of the AFSP industry and considers the impacts of this saturated presence on the individuals who live in these neighborhoods. Using the Phoenix metropolitan area as a site of exploration, I examine where the industry has pooled and look at the descriptive characteristics of those ...


Agent-Based Models In Supporting Pedestrian Transportation Planning And Design, Nicholas A. Perdue 2019 Humboldt State University

Agent-Based Models In Supporting Pedestrian Transportation Planning And Design, Nicholas A. Perdue

Humboldt Journal of Social Relations

Agent-based models offer a new approach to understanding human-urban interactions in transportation systems, allowing individual entities within a system to be characterized with cognitive and behavioral properties. This paper discussed the role of agent-based representations of pedestrian transportation systems, detailing the underlying assumptions and techniques behind different types of pedestrian models and illustrating the differences between aggregate and individual agent representations. It then turns attention to the case study and the development of a cognitive pedestrian model as a way to illustrate the spectrum of potential spatial behaviors that are enabled by material changes to the transportation network. The paper ...

Training As Restructuring: Cases From Entry-Level Healthcare And Manufacturing Workforce Training In Eastern Connecticut, Shelley Buchbinder 2019 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Training As Restructuring: Cases From Entry-Level Healthcare And Manufacturing Workforce Training In Eastern Connecticut, Shelley Buchbinder

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Since the 1980s, capital mobility and state restructuring have increased precarity in older industrial regions, such as eastern Connecticut (CT). These changes reconfigured labor markets, changing the work available, including the types, conditions, and skills required. Greater responsibility devolved onto poor and working-class people to navigate a labor market with insufficient living-wage work with 42.4% of jobs pay under $15/hour (Tung, Lathrop, & Sonn, 2015). Entry-level healthcare and manufacturing are two avenues for sub-baccalaureate, living-wage employment. Employment and Training (E&T) prepares people for entry-level jobs; it is a politically popular response to restructurings (Lafer, 2002; Laney et al., 2013). How do trainings produce and reproduce relations of capital and the state, race and gender, and skill, beyond preparing people for new ...

Mapping And Gis Tools For Disaster Preparation And Recovery, Jim Craner

Collaborative Librarianship

There are many tools for online and offline mapping, as well as geographic information systems ("GIS"), that public librarians can offer their communities. These tools can be invaluable for emergency response planning before a disaster as well as response and recovery operations after a disaster. Librarians, as community information and technology stewards, can play a valuable role in these scenarios.

Abstract

Demographic and Landscape Change in Linden Hills, Minneapolis: A Case Study in Gentrification. Linden Hills, a Minneapolis neighborhood best known for its hilly linden-tree lined streets, charming homes, parks, and boutique-style shops, is undergoing a transformation from an older generation neighborhood, of lower-income, into a trendy, young urbanite area--a process commonly referred to as "gentrification". Using city records and Google Map's Street View, and drawing on results from a survey of Linden Hills residents, I identify changes in the residential landscape ...

The purpose of this research is to identify the spatial relationship between cycling accidents among each race and ethnicity (White, Black, Hispanic, and Asian) and the socioeconomic characteristics of the area in which they occur. In this case, all census tracts within the City of Sacramento are observed. Each independent variable used in this research has been provided through the American Community Survey and United States Census Bureau’s estimates. These variables pertain to income, race and ethnicity demographics, commute mode choice, employment, and population. The dependent variable for this analysis involved the race and ethnicity of each bicycle accident ...


Youth Visitor Dynamics In Four Pacific Coast National Parks, John Crowell 2019 University of North Alabama

Youth Visitor Dynamics In Four Pacific Coast National Parks, John Crowell

Scholars Week 2019

Recent media reports have suggested that matters of the Milennial Generation (born 1981-1997) and Generation Z (born after 1997) are les inclined to visit national parks, compared to older generations. We used three methods to examin the validity of these media statements: Qualtrics-based social media surveys (on Facebook, Twitter, and instagram), face to face semi-structured interviews with park rangers at four Pacific coast national parks-Redwood, Crater Lkae, Mount Rainier, and Olympic-and on-site visitor counts at visitor centers and on trails. We compared the observations with the limited historical data on vistor ages avaliable from the National Park Service. Our results ...


Disneyfication And Education, Reagan A Yessler 2019 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Disneyfication And Education, Reagan A Yessler

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

Disneyfication in theater means the increase in popularity of Disney plays and the resulting reshaping of modern plays to more resemble those of Walt Disney, in order to gain viewership. In most cases, this means a shift to a musical format featuring upbeat ballads and gaudy but family-friendly costumes. While many theatre elitists frown upon such trends, this project shows how Disneyfication fosters renewed interest and enjoyment in theatre across age groups. A case study of the Knox and Sevier County school systems in Tennessee examines patterns of interest and enjoyment in the nation’s most popular plays via snowball ...

Gis Analysis Of Human Excreta Management In Slum Areas And Its Impacts On The Environment -Viwandani, Nairobi Kenya, Stephen Osero, Jian Chen

Student Presentations

Informal settlement in many developing countries in the world are overwhelmed by lack of essential infrastructure, scarce and strained resources, which causes significant public health problems. Nairobi, the largest city in Kenya, has several informal settlements, which lack systems for managing human excreta. Managing effectively of human excreta remains elusive in the highly populated informal settlement. Inadequate urban sanitation excessively impacts the social determinants of slum population health. This impacts on health range from food contamination, malnutrition, and chronic diseases like typhoid and cholera. In this research, we closely examined the human waste management problem in the Viwandani informal settlement ...

China’S Rise And The World’S Response: How Is Chinese Expansion Portrayed In Media?, Chase Womack 2019 University of North Alabama

China’S Rise And The World’S Response: How Is Chinese Expansion Portrayed In Media?, Chase Womack

Student Presentations

This study examines China’s expansion in the Pacific Ocean, especially in the South China Sea, and how this expansion is portrayed in local media. China’s interventions in the Spratly and Paracel islands have the potential to cause regional and global disruption. What impact will China’s continuing expansion have on global power relations? Using a content analysis of various broadcast, print, and online news sources, I will identify how the populations of these states have reacted to Chinese expansion. Does non-Chinese media reporting suggest that China’s expansion an issue of concern? Or is this issue largely ignored ...
