    Assessment of Children's Capacity to Consent for Research: A Descriptive Qualitative Study of Researchers' Practices.B. E. Gibson, E. Stasiulis, S. Gutfreund, M. McDonald & L. Dade - 2011 - Journal of Medical Ethics 37 (8):504-509.
    Background In Canadian jurisdictions without specific legislation pertaining to research consent, the onus is placed on researchers to determine whether a child is capable of independently consenting to participate in a research study. Little, however, is known about how child health researchers are approaching consent and capacity assessment in practice. The aim of this study was to explore and describe researchers' current practices. Methods The study used a qualitative descriptive design consisting of 14 face-to-face interviews with child health researchers and (...)

  4. Leaders as Moral Role Models: The Case of John Gutfreund at Salomon Brothers. [REVIEW]Ronald R. Sims & Johannes Brinkman - 2002 - Journal of Business Ethics 35 (4):327-339.
    The paper describes and discusses unethical behavior in organizations, as a result of (interacting) disputable leadership and ethical climate. This paper presents and analyzes the well-known bond trading scandal at Salomon Brother to demonstrate the development of an unethical organizational culture under the leadership of John Gutfreund. The paper argues that leaders shape and reinforce an ethical or unethical organizational climate by what they pay attention to, how they react to crises, how they behave, how they allocate rewards, and (...)

    Media Coverage of Human Rights in the USA and UK: The Violations Still Will Not Be Televised.Shawna M. Brandle - 2018 - Human Rights Review 19 (2):167-191.
    This article analyzes American television and American and British print news coverage of human rights using a combination of manual and machine coding. The data reveal that television and print news cover very few human rights stories, that these stories are mostly international and not domestic, that even when human rights are covered, they are not covered in detail, and that human rights issues are more likely to be covered when they are not framed as human rights. This suggests that (...)

    Revisiting the Role of Private Military and Security Companies.George Andreopoulos & Shawna Brandle - 2012 - Criminal Justice Ethics 31 (3):138-157.
    Abstract This essay addresses the role of private military and security companies (PMSCs) in security governance. In this context, it offers a historical overview of some of the main developments in the evolution of private warfare and critically discusses some of the key challenges confronting the quest for holding PMSCs accountable in accordance with international human rights and humanitarian norms.

    Patterns of Characterization in Folktales Across Geographic Regions and Levels of Cultural Complexity.Jonathan Gottschall, Rachel Berkey, Mitchell Cawson, Carly Drown, Matthew Fleischner, Melissa Glotzbecker, Kimberly Kernan, Tyler Magnan, Kate Muse, Celeste Ogburn, Stephen Patterson, Christopher Skeels, Stephanie St Joseph, Shawna Weeks, Alison Welsh & Erin Welch - 2003 - Human Nature 14 (4):365-382.
    Literary scholars are generally suspicious of the concept of universals: there are presently no candidates for literary universals that a high proportion of literary scholars would accept as valid. This paper reports results from a content analysis of patterns of characterization in folktales from 48 culture areas, aimed at identifying patterns of characterization that apply across regions of the world and levels of cultural complexity. The search for these patterns was guided by evolutionary theory and the findings are consistent with (...)

    Everything in Moderation, Even Hype: Learning From Vaccine Controversies to Strike a Balance with CRISPR.Shawna Benston - 2017 - Journal of Medical Ethics 43 (12):819-823.
    The ease and applicability of CRISPR/Cas9––a new and precise gene editing and reproductive technology––have garnered hype and heightened concern about its potential ‘unprecedented and horrific consequences’ and have led many scientific leaders to call for a moratorium on its research and use. CRISPR appears distinctly more controversial than previous technological innovations, with a greater reach and speed of human treatment and enhancement; however, we have seen similarly inflated hopes and fears in response to other medical innovations for well over a (...)

  12. Production Frontiers.Rolf Fare, Shawna Grosskopf & C. A. Knox Lovell - 1993 - Cambridge University Press.
    This book presents a mathematical programming approach to the analysis of production frontiers and efficiency measurement. The authors construct a variety of production frontiers, and by measuring distances to them are able to develop a model of efficient producer behaviour and a taxonomy of possible types of departure from efficiency in various environments. Linear programming is used as an analytical and computational technique in order to accomplish this. The approach developed is then applied to modelling producer behaviour. By focusing on (...)

    Student/Patient: The School Perceptions of Children with Cancer.C. Boles Jessika, L. Winsor Denise, Mandrell Belinda, Gattuso Jami, West Nancy, Leigh Laurie & M. Grissom Shawna - 2017 - Educational Studies 43 (5):549-566.
    Childhood cancer incidence is rising, affecting a growing proportion of elementary school students. For most of these children, school attendance can be limited by hospitalisations, treatments and side effects. However, little is yet known about the educational needs and experiences of this population. This phenomenological study explored the school experiences of 10 6- to 12-year-old children with cancer as they underwent chemotherapy. Results revealed perceptions that attending school in the hospital or home during cancer treatment is essentially lonely, confusing and (...)

    How Motif Environment Influences Transcription Factor Search Dynamics: Finding a Needle in a Haystack.Iris Dror, Remo Rohs & Yael Mandel-Gutfreund - 2016 - Bioessays 38 (7):605-612.
    Transcription factors (TFs) have to find their binding sites, which are distributed throughout the genome. Facilitated diffusion is currently the most widely accepted model for this search process. Based on this model the TF alternates between one‐dimensional sliding along the DNA, and three‐dimensional bulk diffusion. In this view, the non‐specific associations between the proteins and the DNA play a major role in the search dynamics. However, little is known about how the DNA properties around the motif contribute to the search. (...)
