Statistics , 2014, DOI: 10.1214/13-AOAS689
Abstract: Clauset and Woodard (2013) ask, "What is the likelihood of another September 11th-sized or larger terrorist event, worldwide, over the next decade?" This question has implications for numerous policy arenas - national security, international relations, public safety, disaster preparedness, and so on - but it also has resonance for any individual who remembers 9/11. Thus, the Area Editors chose this paper to engage the audience at the 2013 Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM) in Montreal. The discussions in this issue of The Annals of Applied Statistics include those presented formally at JSM 2013 as well as others from individuals who were unable to attend JSM 2013 or who contributed discussions after the meeting.
Aaron Goodfellow, 'Pharmaceutical Intimacy: Sex, Death, and Methaphetamine'  [cached]

Opticon1826 , 2009, DOI: 10.5334/opt.070911
Abstract: In 2008, Aaron Goodfellow challenged boundaries in sociology, anthropology and material culture studies with his article on sex, death and methamphetamine – an article which refuses to view drug (ab)use from a moral perspective. The result is a fascinating analysis of Mathew’s life. Mathew is a 24-year-old, white, HIV-positive crystal methamphetamine user, in a Baltimore rehabilitation institute on state parole, and receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART). In Mathew’s own words, he is ‘a public health threat number one, huh? (I’m) a gay crystal using, HIV positive convict’ (quoted in Goodfellow 2008, 280). Through his interactions with Mathew, Goodfellow explores the anthropological issue of the contingency of specific substances and of personhood within a modern, urban context, on the edge of ‘normative society’. The article supports the validity of Tilley’s work on objectification (2006); people and things (in this case, substances) are indivisible. The author encourages us to view Mathew’s situation not as an addiction, but as a partnership between Mathew and substances: Mathew often responds creatively to the substance’s agency with his own agency. In this review, I will briefly discuss the thought-provoking aspects of Goodfellow’s account, which will hopefully encourage you to read the article in full.
Defining transmedia narrative: problems and questions. Dialogue with Mary-Laure Ryan  [cached]
Franco Passalacqua,Federico Pianzola
Enthymema , 2011, DOI: 10.6092/2037-2426/1188
Abstract: In this interview Mary-Laure Ryan faces some problems that arise from her definition of transmedia narrative . Can every semiotic system tell stories? How can we elaborate a definition of narrative which accounts both for cognitive and semantic aspects? How can we dispense with the syntactic level if we need a definition of narrativity that suits every semiotic system? Answering these questions, Ryan deals with other proposals developed around the same theoretical problems, and points out a thought-provoking argument against Meir Sternberg’s functionalist definition of narrative.

Christophe Cormier
Transatlantica : Revue d'études Américaines , 2011,
Abstract: Tous ceux qui vivent cette tension entre désir pour un art démocratique et méfiance envers le go t du plus grand nombre considéreront avec intérêt la trajectoire de Ryan McGinley. La série I Know Where the Summer Goes, sur laquelle nous proposons de revenir ici, semble en constituer le point d’inflexion, entre ses classes dans l’avant-garde et ses incursions récentes dans des sphères esthétiques plus académiques et plus commerciales. Lorsque la Team Gallery de New York inaugure l’exposition I...

Il retrace son évolution de l’ethnométhodologie à la sociologie cognitive. Puis il s’intéresse à ses originalités quant au problème micro/macro. Dans ces deux principales parties, l’auteur est amené à mettre en évidence des convergences et des différences avec des sociologues importants : Pierre Bourdieu, Harold Garfinkel et Erving Goffman.

Cicourel’s text Notes on the integration of micro- and macro-levels of analysis , taken from Advances in Social Theory and Methodology – Toward an Integration of Micro- and Macro-Sociologies, edited by Karin D.

Published with the pleasant authorization of the author. This text is translated here in French for the first time. This article intends to put in perspective the text in the scientific course of the American sociologist, born in 1928 and relatively ignored in the French-speaking world. It gives the general outline of his evolution from ethnomethodology to cognitive sociology. Then it deals with its originalities as for the micro /macro problem. In these two principal parts, the author is brought to highlight convergences and differences with important sociologists: Pierre Bourdieu, Harold Garfinkel and Erving Goffman. Aaron V.

PLOS ONE , 2008, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0003250
Abstract: Background The Ryan White HIV/AIDS Care Act (now the Treatment Modernization Act; Ryan White Program, or RWP) is a source of federal public funding for HIV care in the United States. The Health Services and Resources Administration requires that facilities or providers who receive RWP funds ensure that HIV health services are accessible and delivered according to established HIV-related treatment guidelines. We used data from population-based samples of persons in care for HIV infection in three states to compare the quality of HIV care in facilities supported by the RWP, with facilities not supported by the RWP. Methodology/Principal Findings Within each area (King County in Washington State; southern Louisiana; and Michigan), a probability sample of patients receiving care for HIV infection in 1998 was drawn. Based on medical records abstraction, information was collected on prescription of antiretroviral therapy according to treatment recommendations, prescription of prophylactic therapy, and provision of recommended vaccinations and screening tests. We calculated population-level estimates of the extent to which HIV care was provided according to then-current treatment guidelines in RWP-supported and non-RWP-supported facilities. For all treatment outcomes analyzed, the compliance with care guidelines was at least as good for patients who received care at RWP-supported (vs non-RWP supported) facilities. For some outcomes in some states, delivery of recommended care was significantly more common for patients receiving care in RWP-supported facilities: for example, in Louisiana, patients receiving care in RWP-supported facilities were more likely to receive indicated prophylaxis for Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia and Mycobacterium avium complex, and in all three states, women receiving care in RWP-supported facilities were more likely to have received an annual Pap smear. Conclusions/Significance The quality of HIV care provided in 1998 to patients in RWP-supported facilities was of equivalent or better quality than in non-RWP supported facilities; however, there were significant opportunities for improvement in all facility types. Data from population-based clinical outcomes surveillance data can be used as part of a broader strategy to evaluate the quality of publicly-supported HIV care.
Performing a theoretically robust Ryan test using intermediate-mass black holes  [PDF]
James S. Graber
Physics , 2006,
Abstract: We investigate the possibility of using binary IMBH inspirals to perform the Ryan test of general relativity in a theoretically robust manner using data from early in the detectable part of the inspiral. We find this to be feasible and compute the masses of the most favourable systems.
A terapia cognitiva de Aaron Beck como reflexividade na alta modernidade: uma sociologia do conhecimento
Oliveira, Cláudio Ivan de;Pires, Anderson Clayton;Vieira, Timoteo Madaleno;
Psicologia: Teoria e Pesquisa , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-37722009000400020
Abstract: a sociology of knowledge interprets the knowledge production as tied to social situations. leaving from this epistemological premise, our paper objectified to interpret the aaron beck cognitive therapy as a knowledge that is both constructed and constructor of the phenomenon of reflexivity in high modernity, as interpreted by anthony giddens. our hypothesis is that the reorientation of the customer's beliefs system, proposed by the cognitive therapy, is a form of reflexive reconstruction of self-identity aiming to surpass typical conflicts of the instability in high modernity. we designate some aspects in the cognitive therapy that identify it with reflexivity, over all the idea that the self-identity's construction is a task in which the individual engages reflexively.
