Mindfulness and decision-making: Sunk-costs or escalation of commitment?

Neil Schmitzer-Torbert
Mindfulness is related to a number of positive health outcomes, such as decreased stress, anxiety and improved physical functioning. Recent studies have also identified cognitive benefits of mindfulness, including work by Hafenbrack, Kinias and Barsade (2014) who found that higher trait mindfulness and brief mindfulness inductions significantly improved decision-making, by reducing escalation of commitment to a course of action which has proven to be disadvantageous. Such work demonstrates that beyond well-being, mindfulness may be related...

Characterising the efforts to reduce consumer demand for wildlife products

Diogo Veríssimo & Anita Wan
The unsustainable trade in wildlife is a key threat to the Earth’s biodiversity. While efforts to mitigate this threat have traditionally focused on regulation and enforcement, there is a growing interest in campaigns aimed at reducing the demand for wildlife products. However, we have little understanding of the impacts of these efforts. In this article, we aim to describe the extent to which such campaigns to change consumer behavior have been evaluated, and the existing...

Research can help build trust between MPA managers and community members

In a study of residents living adjacent to the Ningaloo Marine Park in Western Australia, researchers found that scientific research conducted in the park had helped to build trust with regard to management of the MPA. The study also found that trust could be further enhanced through a targeted science communication and engagement strategy that targets different ‘personality types’ throughout the region.

Collaborative peer production as an alternative to hierarchical internet based business systems

ganesh gopal, Debanjum Solanky & Govindaraj Rajamanickam
As we move towards more data intensive, devicecentric global communication networks, our ability to usefully harvest these large datastores is degrading. The widening asym-metry in the explosive growth of data versus our ability to use it, is forcing us towards centralized analytics. This splintered concentration of data further consolidates analytical capabilities in the hands of the few and divides the network into the analysors and the analysed. The fracturing of the system into opaque datastores...

Impact of tidal height on characteristics of ALOS PALSAR measurements to estimate above ground biomass of mangrove forest in Indonesia

Ketut Wikantika
Mangrove has the most carbon rich forests in the tropics. Mapping and monitoring biomass of mangrove forest is very important to manage ecosystem and field survey of mangrove biomass and productivity is very difficult due to muddy soil condition, heavy weight of the wood, very large area and tidal effect on mangrove area. Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS) Phased Array L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR) is available for identification and monitoring mangrove forest. The objective...


Nelson Tebbe
113 Michigan Law Review 809 (2015)How should the Constitution change? In Originalism and the Good Constitution, John McGinnis and Michael Rappaport argue that it ought to change in only one way: through the formal mechanisms set out in the Constitution’s own Article V. This is so, they claim, because provisions adopted by supermajority vote are more likely to be substantively good. The original Constitution was ratified in just that way, they say, and subsequent changes...

A continuum damage description for a discrete crack modeling approach for delamination migration in composite laminates

DC Pham
A three-dimensional discrete crack embedded within a continuum damage mechanics (CDM) model is developed for an effective characterization of delamination migration in composite laminates subjected to static loading. 3D Hashin failure criterion is implemented for damage initiation prediction under a 3D stress state. Matrix crack initiation criteria coupled with a maximum principal stress direction are employed to determine the location and orientation of a discrete matrix crack within an element. Given the orientation of the...

Knowde: A Visual Search Interface

Maurice Schleußinger & Maria Henkel
Information Visualizations are well-established to represent high density information in an intuitive and interactive way. There are no popular general retrieval systems, however, which utilize the power of information visualizations for search result representation. This paper describes Knowde, a search interface with purely visual result representation. It employs a powerful information retrieval system and works in a common web browser in real-time. This working prototype, with three different variations of network graphs will assist us...
