Substance Use and Misuse | Year: 2012
Objective: This article presents empirical findings which suggest that religious coping moderates the relationship between daily hassles stress and alcohol use among female college students. Method: This study utilized a cross-sectional data collection strategy and convenience sampling to examine the relationship between alcohol use, daily hassles stress, and religious coping among 423 undergraduate students (269 females and 154 males) at a religiously affiliated college in the Midwestern USA. Data were collected in 2008. Instruments utilized for data collection included the Inventory of College Student Recent Life Experiences, the Brief RCOPE, and quantity/frequency measures of alcohol use. Results: Involvement in positive religious coping was significantly related to lower rates of alcohol use. Hierarchical multiple regression analysis revealed that among women, positive religious coping moderated the relationship between two types of daily hassles stress (academic alienation and romantic problems) and alcohol use. Conclusions: This study found that among female college students, the relationship between daily hassles stress and alcohol use weakened with increased participation in religious coping. This finding suggests that religious coping may protect against alcohol use among female college students. The results of this study also suggest that it may be important for university-based treatment and prevention practitioners to assess involvement in religious coping practices and to include such practices in the treatment planning process, when culturally appropriate and desired by consumers. Study limitations and areas for further research are also discussed. Copyright © 2012 Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.

Orthopaedic Nursing | Year: 2014
The role of the nurse as care coordinator is important in all patient populations, including orthopaedic settings, and is essential in promoting safe patient care for the intellectually and developmentally disabled (I/DD) person living in the residential setting. Care coordination for this population is challenging. Most healthcare providers, as well as nurses, are not familiar with the residential group home setting or with the special needs of this population, especially when presented with orthopaedic challenges. These factors, as well as funding issues, make for a "perfect storm" for care coordination. Educating nurses can help open the door to communication, smoother transitions, and collaboration among care coordinators in all settings. © 2014 by National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses.

Many believe that moral value is—at least to some extent—dependent on the developmental states necessary for supporting rational activity. My paper rejects this view, but does not aim simply to register objections to it. Rather, my essay aims to answer the following question: if a human being’s developmental state and occurrent capacities do not bequeath moral standing, what does? The question is intended to prompt careful consideration of what makes human beings objects of moral value, dignity, or (to employ my preferred term) goodness. Not only do I think we can answer this question, I think we can show that nascent human life possesses goodness of precisely this sort. I appeal to Aquinas’s metaethics to establish the conclusion that the goodness of a human being—even if that being is an embryo or fetus—resides at the substratum of her existence. If she possesses goodness, it is because human existence is good. © 2015, Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

The connections between anonymity and self-disclosure online have received research attention, but the results have been inconclusive with regard to self-disclosure in blogs. This quantitative content analysis of 154 personal journal blogs tested some assumptions of the online disinhibition effect in order to examine the effect of types of anonymity on the amount, breadth, and depth of self-disclosure in blog entries. Results showed that participants disclosed more information in their blog entries when they were more visually identified (sharing a picture of themselves), contrary to the assumptions of the online disinhibition effect. Overall, a trend emerged where visual anonymity led to less disclosiveness, and discursive anonymity (sharing one's real name) led to less disclosiveness for particular types of bloggers. © 2013 International Communication Association.

Based five year field work (2006-2011) in China, the author interviewed 30 Chinese executives from 20 dif-ferent foreign multinational enterprises. Only two companies chose to practice more communication with their suppliers despite interests in operational efficiency. Exemplifying an alternative paradigm of managing sustainability based on thorough understandings through change of their organizational culture and relation-ships with their selected Chinese suppliers. Their commitment to sustainability in the global supply chain is due to the moral consciousness of their leaders and the persistence, compassion, and humbleness of their dedicated corporate social responsibility officers. There are five major barriers for managing sustainability in the global supply chain in China: seeking low cost and production efficiency; lacking internal alignments between commercial and responsible supply chain objectives; lacking incentives to practice procedural justice or develop trusting relationships with their suppliers in China in which there is weak legal enforce-ment system and civil society; easily bypassing many social and environmental responsibilities in China; and evasive compliance-oriented mechanism (i.e., monitoring, evaluating, reporting and sanctioning) over Chinese suppliers. Pursuing sustainability under the existing low-cost operational efficiency paradigm cannot overcome these five barriers. Managing sustainability in the global supply chain must be driven by the spirit of caring people and environment. © 2012, IGI Global.
Agency: NSF | Branch: Standard Grant | Program: | Phase: Campus Cyberinfrastrc (CC-NIE) | Award Amount: 319.75K | Year: 2015
Malone University is redesigning its cyberinfrastructure support of scientific research, building a framework that can be utilized by similarly-sized institutions. Malone is improving support of research through: ongoing collaborative planning with campus researchers, information technology personnel, and external partners; implementing an advanced network with application-level network visibility to optimize researcherís connections to resources and better troubleshoot when issues arise; improving its connections to peer institutions by configuring a Science DMZ, Internet2, and InCommon; and by creating a pool of student-driven programming and technical resources for the explicit purpose of supporting campus researchers.
Malone is systematically documenting and sharing this process; building a collaboration framework that can be referenced and leveraged by other small institutions who seek to support their own campus researchers. Expertise of statewide ISP OARnet will be leveraged in all aspects of the project but especially in the areas of the ScienceDMZ, Federated Identity (InCommon), and Internet2.
