Most parents do not successfully transmit their political values to their children, study finds

first_imgLinkedIn Less than half of all people in the United States adopt their parents’ political party affiliation, according to new research published in the British Journal of Political Science. The study also discovered some factors that appear to influence whether parents successfully transmit their partisan identities to their children.“Most parents want to raise their children with the ‘right’ values. What is right, of course, depends upon the parent but understanding what factors might aid or harm a parent’s ability to successful transmit their values to their children is important to many, particularly in this era of hyper polarization,” said study author Pete Hatemi, a distinguished professor at Penn State University.“Generally speaking, if there has been one constant in the study of political behavior it was the belief that political orientations are reliably transmitted from parents to children. The problem is that the evidence of this belief has almost entirely relied upon the concordance between self-reported parent and child values.” Share on Twitter Email Share on Facebookcenter_img Share “Basically, researchers have simply treated parent-child correlation as evidence of parent-to-child transmission. Moreover, the generally held view has been that parent-child agreement on political orientations is the norm — a majority of children know and want to adopt their parents’ values, and parents simply instill values into children. Oddly enough, these assumptions have hardly been tested.”The researchers examined data from 4,852 parent–child dyads. The data came from three large longitudinal studies: the Youth-Parent Socialization Study, the Health and Lifestyles Study and the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth. Importantly, the studies not only assessed the party identification of parents and their children, they also assessed children’s perceptions of their parents’ political beliefs and included measures of the parent-child relationship.Hatemi and his colleagues found that fewer than half of the children correctly perceived and subsequently adopted their parents’ party identification. “That is, most parents do not successfully transmit their values to their children,” he told PsyPost.“There are at least two steps to transmitting values to children. First, children must accurately perceive their parent’s values, then they must choose whether or not to adopt those values. This is important because almost all prior approaches have overstated parent-to child transmission — they treated children who correctly perceived and adopted their parents values as the same as those who misperceived and rejected those values (and vice versa).”“The number of false positives and false negatives was considerable. On average, 28% of children misperceived their parents’ values and 35% of children rejected whatever they perceived their parents to be. That is, the perception of parental values, not the parents’ actual values, is the most important factor in a child adopting their parents’ political party identification,” Hatemi explained.The researchers also uncovered several factors related to a child’s rejection or acceptance of their parents’ party identification.“We found that while a more politicized home increases the ability of children to know their parent’s values, it does not have any role in motivating a child to adopt their parent’s values. Parent-child closeness and the intensity of parents’ political opinions appear to influence children to want to be more like their parents, but oddly enough they do nothing to improve a children’s ability to know their parents’ values.”“This is important because we found that the children who often want to be like their parents end up adopting the wrong values because they actually believed their parents to be completely different. And education, previously thought to have little role in transmission, does not influence a child’s ability to know their parents’ affiliation, but appears to make children more likely to reject whatever that they believe their parents to be.”All research includes some limitations, and the current study is no exception.“Our data mainly covers the 70s, 80, and 2000s but there is a real lack of studies that have parent-child cross reports. Our next step is to collect data from 2020 forward to see if this pattern holds true,” Hatemi noted.“Our models are designed to offer a first step, a baseline model if you will. Additional factors, such as institutions, differing political contexts, including other countries, global conditions and more information on the children and parents is needed, particularly emotional and cognitive aspects.”“The current study focused mainly parent to child transmission, but a critical next step is to address the role of child to parent transmission, which is increasingly prevalent in first-generation families. A growing literature is concentrating on child-driven discussion in which child experiences bring new information into the home and allows parents to become more politically aware,” Hatemi said.The study, “The Role of Child Perception and Motivation in Political Socialization“, was authored by Peter K. Hatemi and Christopher Ojeda. Pinterestlast_img read more

WHO names candidates for next director-general

first_imgThe World Health Organization (WHO) today released the names of 6 candidates for the role of the agency’s next director-general, 4 of whom are from Europe, with 1 each from Asia and Africa.The current director-general, Margaret Chan, MD, MPH, will step down next June, after more than 10 years of service. The new director-general will start the position on Jul 1, 2017.The director-general is the de facto head of the WHO, overseeing all technical and administrative tasks for the organization. The WHO’s 194 member states had 5 months to submit nominations.The candidates are Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, PhD, from Ethiopia; Flavia Bustreo, MD, from Italy; Philippe Douste-Blazy, MD, from France; David Nabarro, MD, from the United Kingdom; Sania Nishtar, MD, from Pakistan; and Miklos Szocska, MD, of Hungary.The candidates have some similar backgrounds; five are medical doctors, and all but Nabarro and Bustreo have served as health ministers in their home countries. Nabarro is currently a special adviser to the United Nations on sustainable development, and Bustreo is an assistant director-general at the WHO.Michael Osterholm, PhD, MPH, director of the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP), which publishes CIDRAP News, said the next director-general faces “immense” challenges given the WHO’s lack of funding and organization.”There hasn’t been a fundamental change in structure at the WHO even post-Ebola,” said Osterholm. “Until we get serious about [the] shortcomings of the WHO, it’s a mistake to pin too much on the director-general.”The pool of candidates will be narrowed down to three through interviews with the WHO’s executive board by next January. An election will be held in May of 2017 at the World Health Assembly.See also:Sep 23 WHO news releaselast_img read more

You don’t have to be trendy to be stylish

first_img 1 of 2 It’s funny how certain styles are trending every year and by the end of the season everyone’s fed up with them, but the following year the excitement is there again. That’s fashion for you.It used to be that a fashion trend would last a decade. Look at the 1950s and 60s. Now it seems the latest fashion trends barely last a season.However, I find on closer inspection it’s not as bad as it seems. Often the main fashion trends stay the same for a few seasons in a row with minor trends coming and going more quickly. And with the more frequent changes older styles come back into fashion again more quickly.The good news is that today’s fashion trends combine into many “looks”. And there are a number of styles for each trend, for example, when the latest pants style was skinny leg, wide and straight legs were also in. So it’s usually possible to find at least one look that suits your body shape and your style personality.You don’t have to be trendy to be stylish. And there is certainly no need to slavishly follow a current fashion trend look — in fact, it’s preferable not to. However, to keep your look contemporary it is important to incorporate at least one or two current fashion trends into your outfits. And, it can be fun to update your look, especially when you’re armed with a few guidelines to make the styles you like work for you. The most cost effective way to update an outfit is by adding one or more current fashion accessory. For example, adding a new pair of shoes or boots in a current style, perhaps combined with a contemporary necklace or scarf and earrings can totally transform an outfit you already have and give it a new lease of life. Plan for the new seasonIt can be confusing (and expensive) hitting the shops at the start of a new season without a plan. If you do, you may well end up with items that are too similar to what you already have, or that don’t go with anything else. Shopping is more productive, more fun and costs less when you have a plan that you (largely) follow. At the start of a new season it’s a good idea to…Clean out your wardrobeAudit your wardrobe. Even if you don’t do a full clear out, at the very least audit your wardrobe for gaps…What items do you need to purchase for the coming or current season?What is looking worn and needs replacing? What item do you find yourself wishing you had as you get ready to go out for a daily activity or a special occasion? Make a list of things to buy.Research the current trendsAsk yourself what hot new trends excite you; will those trends suit you and your lifestyle needs and do they suit your body shape, your colouring and your personality? You can also get more advice and check out my observations on the latest fashion trends on my blog.

Port of Long Beach Officials Launch Zero-Emissions Port Project

first_imgOfficials from the Port of Long Beach, Southern California Edison and the California Energy Commission today launched the nation’s largest pilot project for zero-emissions cranes and other cargo-handling equipment for seaports.Funded mostly by a USD 9.7 million grant from the California Energy Commission, the project will bring 25 vehicles that are zero- or near zero-emissions to Port of Long Beach marine terminals for one year to test their performance in a real-world setting. The launch event was held at Pacific Container Terminal at Long Beach’s Pier J — operated by SSA Terminals — one of three terminals participating in the project.The ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles in 2017 approved an update to their Clean Air Action Plan, setting a goal of transitioning all terminal equipment to zero emissions by 2030.“The Zero-Emissions Terminal Transition Project kicks off a new era in transportation electrification and the Port’s own transformation to zero-emissions,” said Long Beach Harbour Commission President Lou Anne Bynum. “We are grateful for the partnerships with the Energy Commission and Southern California Edison that are making this a reality.”“This project is another example of the goods movement industry, equipment builders, utilities and public agencies stepping up to reach for the goal of zero emissions,” said Mario Cordero, Port of Long Beach Executive Director. “Today, you can see how everyone is coming together to meet that challenge.”“The projects we are kicking off today will help to address some of Southern California’s biggest challenges — cleaning up the air and reducing harmful greenhouse gases that cause climate change,” said SCE President Ron Nichols. “SCE’s vision for a clean energy future means partnering with the Port and other SCE customers to electrify transportation, as well as working hard to make sure the electricity that we provide to power those vehicles is produced with clean, renewable resources.”“SSA Terminals appreciates the confidence that the Port of Long Beach has shown in our company by selecting us to be part of this major project to electrify the nine large container-handling yard cranes at our Pacific Container Terminal,” said Paul Gagnon, Vice President of SSA Marine Terminals. “We hope that this partnership will continue as we all strive for cleaner air quality.”The project is anticipated to reduce greenhouse gases by more than 1,323 tons and smog-causing nitrogen oxides by 27 tons each year. Also, the switch to zero-emissions equipment is expected to save more than 270,000 gallons of diesel fuel.The project will include the conversion of nine diesel-electric rubber-tire gantry cranes into fully electric equipment at one terminal, the purchase of 12 battery-electric yard tractors for two more terminals, and the conversion of four LNG trucks into plug-in hybrid-electric trucks for a drayage trucking firm.Sea News, April 6 Author: Priyanka Ann Sainilast_img read more

Debate over dairy policy reform still not over

first_imgDairy reform’s most controversial issue isn’t going away quietly.advertisementadvertisementSupply management for U.S. milk production survived the House Ag Committee’s markup of the 2012 Farm Bill on a bipartisan 29-17 vote, even as opponents proposed to strip it from the bill.Click here or on the image at right to view it at full size in a new window. But it’s unlikely the fight over inclusion of supply management in dairy reforms is over. As of early August, the Farm Bill was stalled in the House, awaiting a floor vote on the measure.Republican leadership in the House had proposed a one-year extension of the current Farm Bill as opposed to proceeding to a floor vote. That proposal was withdrawn after many dairy and ag industry groups came out in opposition to an extension.But even if the Farm Bill that passed in committee is brought before the full House this year, supply management opponents say they anticipate presenting again the amendment defeated by the committee, which would strip out supply management from dairy reform.advertisementThat proposal was quickly hatched and unveiled just days before the House Ag Committee met July 11 to mark up the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2012 or 2012 Farm Bill.Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Virginia) co-sponsored the proposal, which would have been a margin insurance program similar to reforms included in the House version of the Farm Bill and the version already passed by the Senate.But it would not have required participation in supply management to be covered by government-sponsored insurance.The cost of margin insurance under the Goodlatte amendment would have generally cost more than similar proposals to cover milk production in excess of four million pounds and less for coverage for production less than that amount. Goodlatte’s amendment also proposed insurance without set-up fees.The versions passed by the House Ag Committee and the Senate would provide margin insurance on all of a producer’s milk when milk-feed margins fall below $4 for free, if they agree to supply management.In contrast, the Goodlatte amendment, while not requiring supply management, would have only covered the first four million pounds of a dairy’s production at or below a $4 margin for free.advertisementNMPF Senior Vice President and lobbyist Dana Brooks says the proposal wasn’t well vetted. “We were disappointed by the effort to unravel a coalition for dairy reform that has been formed over the past three years,” Brooks says.Brooks says NMPF primarily opposed the amendment because the cost of insurance premiums were imbalanced between small and large milk producers.She also says because the amendment didn’t cap government payments or address how to signal to producers an oversupply of milk in the marketplace, that it would likely enhance overproduction during times of low margins.Of the representatives who supported the amendment in committee, most cited government involvement in the control of the supply of any product as the reason for their opposition to the proposed Farm Bill dairy reforms.“This is an ideological battle – whether the government should be in a place to control and dictate supply of any product in this country,” Rep. Reid Ribble (R-Wisconsin) said.International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA), which has always been opposed to milk supply management in any form, also supported the Goodlatte amendment. Jerry Slominski, senior vice president and lobbyist for IDFA, says the amendment proved margin insurance without supply management could have competitive rates.“This program is much better than insurance with stabilization because it would not offset what producers get in insurance payments from what’s already being taken out of their checks through the stabilization program,” Slominski says.Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minnesota), who last fall introduced the dairy reforms in the current Farm Bill proposal, attacked the amendment in committee by saying that in the long run he believes the proposal would cost more than it saves – up to 10 times so.“The Congressional Budget Office has not scored this correctly,” Peterson asserted during committee markup. “They are projecting that prices are never going to go down.Well, let me tell you something – you’re going to cause overproduction and collapse prices. The government is going to pay and you’re not going to be able to stop it.”Slominski says although the committee’s vote defeated the amendment, it showed enough opposition to supply management to bring the issue before the entire House membership.“I think the committee’s vote had more to do with politics and the deals being cut than the merit of the amendment’s proposal because if the vote would have been on the merits of the proposal we would have won,” Slominski says. “The ag committee is a captive audience, and even among them supply management eked out a majority – but not a great majority.When this vote goes to the floor, I think a proposal with supply management is in trouble.”Slominski says offering the amendment again on the House floor for a full House vote is a real possibility given House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) reported comments calling U.S. dairy policy “a Soviet-style dairy program – and the Farm Bill would actually make it worse.”Brooks says she believes Boehner’s comments were in reference to Federal Milk Marketing Order reforms, which are not included in the Farm Bill, and not to the Dairy Market Stabilization Program. However, she acknowledged NMPF is preparing for the possibility of a floor debate on dairy policy reform.“Imagine educating 435 members of Congress on dairy policy. That’s not going to be fun. But we continue to inform members of the Congressional Dairy Caucus about proposed reforms,” Brooks says. “We suspect there will be another effort to try to put Dairy Stabilization into a supply management box.”Brooks asserted NMPF would be successful in defeating the Goodlatte amendment, even if it is brought to a vote again.“We’ve been developing this proposal for three years,” Brooks says. “It’s been developed in a glass house. There has been every opportunity for supporters or those in opposition to come and ask questions.” PDlast_img read more

Mau Travelling, Ini Tips Buat Melipat Pakaian Yang Hemat Tempat!

first_imgSumber: youtube Membawa pakaian lebih saat berlibur memang menjadi pilihan beberapa orang, mengingat baju tersebut bisa saja digunakan dalam keadaan tidak terduga, seperti kehujanan atau kondisi lainnya. Namun, permasalahan muncul ketika tas yang Anda gunakan tidak mampu menampung baju cadangan tersebut. Sebenarnya, ada beberapa trik khusus yang dapat digunakan untuk menyusun baju-baju tersebut sehingga tidak memakan tempat terlalu banyak.Baca juga: Agar Perjalanan Nyaman, Packing Pakaian Itu Harus EfisienSalah satu cara yang dianggap efektif untuk membawa pakaian-pakaian tersebut adalah dengan cara menggulungnya. Trik ini biasa digunakan oleh militer AS ketika hendak melakukan perjalanan jauh. Menggulung pakaian merupakan cara tepat untuk memasukkan lebih banyak barang ke dalam tas Anda, tanpa harus khawatir akan kelebihan beban. Cara ini dapat diaplikasikan ke hampir seluruh jenis pakaian, dari mulai kaos, kemeja, celana panjang, hingga sweater. Salah satu kunci keberhasilan dari cara ini adalah dengan menghaluskan permukaan pakaian Anda saat menggulungnya. Pakaian berjenis kaos merupakan salah satu pakaian yang paling mudah untuk digulung, mengingat ukurannya yang tidak terlalu besar dengan bahan yang cukup tipis. Untuk mengaplikasikannya,lipat kaos hingga membentuk persegi, putar kaos dengan bagian leher menghadap ke bawah, lalu mulailah menggulungnya secara perlahan. Jangan lupa untuk merapikan bagian dalam kaos yang sedang digulung untuk menghindari kaos tersebut tidak rapi.Hal serupa juga dapat diaplikasikan pada pakaian lain, tidak terkecuali untuk celana jeans. Cara pengaplikasiannya pun hampir serupa dengan menggulung kaos. Pertemukan kedua bagian kaki dari celana jeans Anda (lipat memanjang), dan mulailah melipat dari bagian bibir celana terlebih dahulu. Selalu rapikan bagian dalam pakaian yang sedang Anda gulung. Untuk kemeja lengan panjang, Anda harus lebih berhati-hati dalam menggulungnya, karena bahan kemeja yang mudah kusut. Cara menggulungnya pun sama dengan kaos, yaitu lipat kemeja secara memanjang dengan bagian lengan terlipat ke dalam, lalu mulailah menggulungnya dari bagian kerah terlebih dahulu. Tidak terkecuali, pakaian dalam pun dapat Anda gulung untuk memaksimalkan ruang yang ada di tas Anda.Anda juga dapat menggunakan tas kecil atau kantong untuk kaos kaki serta pakaian dalam, untuk menghindari pakaian kecil tersebut tercecer saat hendak digunakan. Setelah semua pakaian tergulung rapi, saatnya untuk mengemasnya ke dalam tas. Biasakan untuk menempatkan pakaian dengan beban dan ukuran yang besar, seperti sweater dan celana jeans pada bagian dasar tas. Ini bertujuan agar pakaian tersebut tidak menumpuk pakaian lain yang berukuran lebih kecil, dan tidak menutup kemungkinan akan merusak gulungan pakaian lain yang berada di bawahnya.Sesampainya ditujuan, usahakan langsung gantung baju-baju penting Anda seperti kemeja dengan menggunakan gantungan baju, ini bertujuan untuk menghindari kemeja kusut karena berada dalam gulungan terlalu lama.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedAgar Perjalanan Nyaman, Packing Pakaian Itu Harus Efisien08/03/2017In “Destinasi”Tips Kemas Barang Saat Melancong dengan Koper Kecil23/01/2018In “Destinasi”Pusing dan Mual Selama Perjalanan?

Kye, who won the 52-kg gold at the 2001 worlds in Munich, Germany, has been entered in the 57-kg weight category for the four-day championships that kick off Sept. 11 at Osakajo Hall. Ri Kyong Ok, who lost to Japan’s Ryoko Tamura in the 48-kg final in Munich, will also compete. Sydney Olympic champion Tamura will be gunning for her sixth straight world title in Osaka. North Korea will be making its fourth straight appearance in the World Championships since the 1997 Paris meet. North Korean residents of Japan in Osaka have hailed North Korea’s participation in the judo championships, saying it would have a salutary effect on relations between the two countries. An official of the Osaka police earlier this month said the North Korean contingent is expected to draw a lot of attention given diplomatic tension between Japan and North Korea over the issue of Japanese nationals abducted to North Korea. According to organizers, a total of 79 countries and territories have completed entries for the championships.last_img read more

I read on a Sabres board that the other press conferences have been audio only so it appears that they are showing something.If JS is right about them unvieling 3 uniforms with the 3rd being a retro my guess is they saw the negativity about the slug and at the last minute decided to ad the originbal as a third so they can sell it.

What interview? The press conference has not started yet! In this statement right here, ?Given the outpouring of fan concern the last few weeks, we decided to make this announcement now instead of September as originally planned.

I agree 100% Chris. However, that would really screw sales this upcoming season.BTW, the official release on Sabres.com says the prees conference is “concerning the team’s uniform for this upcoming season.” Link to post Share on other sites Sabres To Wear Original Blue And Gold For 15 Games WGR Newsroom – Thursday, July 27, 2006 – 3:08 PMFollowing is a schedule of the 15 games Buffalo will wear their third jersey this season:Saturday, October 14 vs. New York RangersTuesday, October 17 vs. Philadelphia FlyersSaturday, November 4 vs. Toronto Maple LeafsFriday, November 17 vs. Pittsburgh PenguinsFriday, November 24 vs. Montreal CanadiensThursday, December 14 vs. Florida PanthersTuesday, December 19 vs. Montreal CanadiensMonday, January 1 vs. New York IslandersFriday, January 19 vs. Vancouver CanucksTuesday, January 30 vs. Boston BruinsThursday, February 15 vs. Edmonton OilersThursday, February 22 vs. Ottawa SenatorsSaturday, March 10 vs. New Jersey DevilsFriday, March 23 vs. Toronto Maple LeafsThursday, April 5 vs. Boston BruinsBuffalo Sabres Managing Partner Larry Quinn announced today the Sabres will wear the franchise?s original blue and gold uniform and logo as the team?s third jersey during 15 home games in the 2006-07 season. The Sabres first wore the original Blue and Gold in the 1970-1971 season and continued that way for the following 26 years. The first major change to the team’s look came in 1996-97 when the team changed its basic colors to red, black and white to coincide with the opening of the HSBC Arena (formerly Marine Midland Arena).?We have been planning all along to use the original colors and logo as our third jersey for next season,? Quinn said. ?Given the outpouring of fan concern the last few weeks, we decided to make this announcement now instead of September as originally planned. We are still committed and enthusiastic about our new uniform and believe that fans will embrace it once they have a chance to actually see it.”The Sabres will unveil their new uniform during the week of September 24, at a time and place still to be determined. The team will actually wear their new jerseys for the first time on Saturday, September 30, in their only home pre-season game at HSBC Arena against the Pittsburgh Penguins at 7:00 p.m.The team will wear a new Blue and Gold uniform design, which will be unveiled in late September, for the remaining 26 home games and all 41 road games.http://www.wgr550.com/sabres/fullstory.php?id=1753 0 Quinn just made official confirmation that the slug is indeed the logo .. and the problem with the fans who are rebelling against the ideas, is that they haven’t had the oppurtunity to get the full presentation with wordmarks, uniforms, etc. It is truly a weak brand and logo that requires all of that support in order to appear good. THANK you…that has been my problem with that argument all along. If it needs supporting elements to look good, then it is an INCOMPLETE logo… an inferior logo. 13,833 Link to post 29a Share on other sites Link to post 9 Link to post 0 Share on other sites 159 posts Share this post Followers 1 js ° jkrdevil Link to post 0 All Activity Share on other sites 0 Followers 1 Link to post 1 1,679 posts Lucky Number Sabrejeff 0 The Creamer js ° 12 0 Share this post Kekasse 1 js ° Hmmmm. Perhaps I’m doing a bit too much thinking here and anyone more familiar with the NHL’s rules and reg’s about sweaters feel free to swat back at me, but here’s what I surmise we might see.2006-06 – Sabres wear original uniforms as alts for 15 home dates. Sabres elect a’la Anaheim to use the alts as the lone home playoff sweater.2007-08 – Buoyed by the overwhelming support of the fans for the original uniform design, the Sabres adopt the original “alt” design as their principal home sweater, discontinue the use of the dark blue buffaslug sweater and introduce a white alt sweater which replicates the design of the team’s original white sweaters but utilizes the color palette introduced in 2006.2008-09 – The Sabres discontinue use of the white buffaslug road jerseys, adopting the 2007-08 white alt’s as their principal road sweaters. The home blues are tweaked so as to represent the darker contemporary color scheme.If I’m not mistaken, alt’s can be (1) switched into a primary role at any time, and (2) can be changed from year to year. Again, if I’m wrong, this theory doesn’t work, but if I’m right, it enables the team to get out from this apparent marketing mistake within a reasonable time.

That is similar to what the Islanders did with Gorton. They wore it for 1 year then the next they introduced 2 alternates whcich had the traditional logo on it. The next year they adopted those then they went back to the originals (with navy blue instead of royal).

With all the negativity towards the Buffaslug, they’d have to start from scratch again.2007 will probably bring a new uniform, even though there’s a bevy of better options out there.
