Personality Politics: How Persona Plays into our Political Thinking
Panel Discussion Is perception reality in politics? Wouldn’t it be refreshing if politics were about substance—about ideas and facts and not about appeals to emotion and attacks on character? In recent years, there has been a rise in polarization across the citizenry. The fragmented media environment has led to a change in campaign strategies whereby candidates microtarget citizens with much greater precision than ever before. Unless we are part of a targeted group, we seldom know what stra

'Cosmic magnifying glass' used to find ancient supernova
Astronomers have glimpsed a far off and ancient star exploding, not once, but four times. The exploding star, or supernova, was directly behind a cluster of huge galaxies, whose mass is so great that they warp space-time. This forms a cosmic magnifying glass that creates multiple images of the supernova, an effect first predicted by Albert Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity 100 years ago. Dr Brad Tucker from The Australian National University (ANU) says it’s a dream discovery for the

Code and Law between Truth and Power [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Julie Cohen, Anne Barron | The problem of control over information flows has emerged as a doubly critical vantage point from which to interrogate the exercise of power and the pursuit of justice. Scholars of law and communications have come to recognize that in the networked information society, the dialogue between truth and power is mediated by the code. The Internet has been hailed as the ultimate medium for speaking truth to power, but networked information technologies

Lawrence Bailey - Market Research Valedictory Lecture
Colleagues from both academia and business were present on 27 January 2011 for Lawrence Bailey's guest lecture on Market Segmentation, Qualitative Research and Conversations Across the Garden Wall. The garden wall of the lecture's title was Lawrence's metaphor for the potential divide between the two sectors. The lecture reflected Lawrence's career-long wish to get qualitative researchers in the commercial world to talk to their counterparts in the academic world, and vice versa. He discusse

3.2 Guided participation – a cultural perspective

So far, we've looked at some of the key concepts of a socio-cultural approach to teaching and learning, and explored various ways of analysing the interaction sequences on the video. While scaffolding and the ZPD, levels of control and contingency have provided a powerful framework for research in this area, Hoogstedder et al. draw attention to the possibility that the styles of interaction reported from empirical research, and illustrated in the video, reflect particular cultural practices i

3.2 Constant velocity and the gradient of the position-time graph

Two things you will almost certainly want to know about any particle undergoing uniform motion are 'how fast is it travelling?' and 'in which direction is it moving?' The physical quantity that provides both these items of information is the particle's velocity. This is defined as the rate of change of the particle's position with respect to time, and has a constant value for each case of uniform motion along a line.

3.3 Examples of rights

Many things have been claimed as rights, as can be seen in the text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Table 1. One set of rights is citizenship rights. Primarily concerned with basic constitutional issues, these rights should, in Dworkin's phrase, ‘trump’ other considerations such as political

5.6 Identification

We end Act 1 with a clear understanding that it is actually too late for Ned to pull out, even if he wanted to: the weapon has been designed. If he were concerned about the military technology, he should really have worried about that before he took on the job. But he does not, at the end of Act 1, want to pull out. He clearly wants to see the project through. Materialising this idea is what he lives for, and he says this is at the cutting edge, this is where technology is. These ideas are go

5.1 How did we get here?

We began this unit by posing the question: what is a crime? Shouldn't we be finishing with a clear and unambiguous answer to this? Well we are sorry to disappoint you, if that is what you were expecting, but it doesn't look to us as if there is a simple, unambiguous answer. At the very least, according to Sections 1 and 2 of this chapter, there are: legal and normative definitions of crime; recorded and unrecorded crimes; the crimes we fear and the crimes that fascinate us; and stories of cri

There are very few cases where a table will be the worst format to use. However, when you have a huge amount of data, you may wish to present some of it in a different format. Other formats for presenting data are explained in Sections 4–6.
