"A ras de suelo": Apariciones de candidatos y eventos en la campa?a presidencial de México
Langston, Joy;Lucinda Benton, Allyson;
Política y gobierno , 2009,
Abstract: this work examines a crucial part of modern presidential campaigning in mexico: candidate appearances in municipalities. it also traces the changes in presidential campaigning over the past 30 years and finds that modern campaigning does not just involve mass media appeals, but also "the ground war," that is, candidate visits to cities and towns all across mexico. in order to understand how parties in mexico strategize the candidate appearance schedule, we have gathered a unique data-base that examines all the municipalities visited by each candidate to understand how campaign teams spend valuable resources.
?QUIéN ESTá PREOCUPADO POR LóPEZ OBRADOR? Las respuestas del mercado a las tendencias electorales durante la campa?a presidencial mexicana del 2006
Benton,Allyson Lucinda;
Colombia Internacional , 2006,
Abstract: this article addresses a key issue during the course of mexicos 2006 presidential campaign: how did markets react to changes in support for the left-leaning andrés manuel lópez obrador (prd)? to answer this question, i develop a series of alternative arguments for how investors would respond changes in prd support during the campaign. i evaluate the arguments using a times series garch model.the results show that changes in the levels of support for the candidate did not affect market returns but they did affect market volatility. increased electoral uncertainty, as margins narrowed, raised market volatility, while increasing electoral certainty, regardless of whether rises in support were for lópez obrador or the market-friendly felipe calderón (pan), reduced it. this finding reveals that investors may have accepted the prospect of a lópez obrador presidency ahead of the election but not the possible post-election social and political instability associated with a tight race.
El efecto de las reglas electorales sobre el comportamiento de la votación indígena en el estado mexicano de Oaxaca
Benton, Allyson Lucinda;
Política y gobierno , 2009,
Abstract: this study analyzes whether subnational ethnic group and institutional variation leads to variation in ethnic group political behavior. to this end, i focus on the political behavior of indigenous groups in mexico. though mexico has a small indigenous population compared to many other countries in latin america and does not host ethnic-based political parties, it benefits from certain institutional and demographic features that allow analysis of how different electoral laws interact with ethnicity to shape political behavior. to this end, i study mexico's state of oaxaca where municipal governments have been legally allowed to adopt different kinds of electoral rules and where ethnic group heterogeneity is high. statistical analysis of municipal institutions, indigenous group density, and federal election results in this state show that certain municipal electoral rules exacerbate ethnic group abstention, although they have had no impact on electoral margins or partisan support.
The Catholic Church, Political Institutions, and Electoral Outcomes in Oaxaca, Mexico
Benton Sheldon, Allyson Lucinda;
Revista mexicana de ciencias políticas y sociales , 2011,
Abstract: this study analyzes two competing arguments about the role of the catholic church in state politics oaxaca, mexico in the 1990s and 2000s. one line of argument claims that progressive catholic bishops supported and facilitated democratization in this state. another line suggests that the church may have inadvertently facilitated ongoing authoritarian rule through its active support for the formalization of local customary political practices into law. statistical analysis shows that the level of catholic presence across oaxaca's municipalities only matters in some cases and not always in the direction expected. specifically, in some indigenous communities high levels of catholic presence facilitated the adoption of customary laws, declines in pri support, and lower first place party margins. in other indigenous places, it had the opposite effect. the lack of systematic effect demonstrates the catholic church's capacity to intervene in local political affairs in multiple direction and ways, as well as its often tacit support for existing political dynamics.
The Catholic Church, Political Institutions, and Electoral Outcomes in Oaxaca, Mexico
Allyson Lucinda Benton Sheldon
Revista mexicana de ciencias políticas y sociales , 2011,
Abstract: En este artículo, se analizan dos argumentos con respecto al papel que la Iglesia católica ha desempe ado dentro de la política estatal en Oaxaca, México, durante las décadas de 1990 y 2000. En el primero de ellos, se plantea que los obispos tienden a favorecer y a facilitar los procesos de democratización en este estado. En el segundo, se sugiere que la Iglesia pudo haber favorecido involuntariamente el autoritarismo gubernamental al apoyar con entusiasmo la legalización de usos y costumbres en la política local. El análisis estadístico presentado en este trabajo muestra que el grado de presencia católica en los municipios oaxaque os sólo importa en algunos casos y no siempre en la dirección esperada. Más en concreto, ladefensa de tal legalización en algunas comunidades indígenas donde la presencia del catolicismo prevalece, ha disminuido el apoyo al pri y a los partidos marginales. En cambio, en otras comunidades indígenas, el efecto ha sido el contrario. Finalmente, se concluye que la falta de resultados sistematizados demuestra la capacidad de la Iglesia católica para intervenir en las políticas locales oaxaque as.
Quién está preocupado por López Obrador? Las respuestas del mercado a las tendencias electorales durante la campa a presidencial mexicana del 2006.

Abstract: This article addresses a key issue during the course of Mexico's 2006 presidential campaign: How did markets react to changes in support for the left-leaning Andrés Manuel López Obrador (PRD)? To answer this question, I develop a series of alternative arguments for how investors would respond changes in PRD support during the campaign. I evaluate the arguments using a times series GARCH model.The results show that changes in the levels of support for the candidate did not affect market returns but they did affect market volatility. Increased electoral uncertainty as margins narrowed, raised market volatility, while increasing electoral certainty regardless of whether rises in support were for López Obrador or the market-friendly Felipe Calderón (PAN), reduced it. This finding reveals that investors may have accepted the prospect of a López Obrador presidency ahead of the election but not the possible post-election social and political instability associated with a tight race.
Dehydration Influences Mood and Cognition: A Plausible Hypothesis?
David Benton
Nutrients , 2011, DOI: 10.3390/nu3050555
Abstract: The hypothesis was considered that a low fluid intake disrupts cognition and mood. Most research has been carried out on young fit adults, who typically have exercised, often in heat. The results of these studies are inconsistent, preventing any conclusion. Even if the findings had been consistent, confounding variables such as fatigue and increased temperature make it unwise to extrapolate these findings. Thus in young adults there is little evidence that under normal living conditions dehydration disrupts cognition, although this may simply reflect a lack of relevant evidence. There remains the possibility that particular populations are at high risk of dehydration. It is known that renal function declines in many older individuals and thirst mechanisms become less effective. Although there are a few reports that more dehydrated older adults perform cognitive tasks less well, the body of information is limited and there have been little attempt to improve functioning by increasing hydration status. Although children are another potentially vulnerable group that have also been subject to little study, they are the group that has produced the only consistent findings in this area. Four intervention studies have found improved performance in children aged 7 to 9 years. In these studies children, eating and drinking as normal, have been tested on occasions when they have and not have consumed a drink. After a drink both memory and attention have been found to be improved.
Finding an Amplitude Model for $D^0 \to π^- π^+ π^+ π^-$ using CLEO-c Data
Jack Benton
Physics , 2013,
Abstract: Amplitude analyses of four body $D$ decays are of significant interest for multiple reasons, including their potential contribution to CP violation studies in both $B$ and $D$ decays. The resonant substructure of a four body decay has many possible components and combinations. Here, a genetic algorithm for the optimisation of such amplitude models is described. The application to an amplitude analysis of the decay mode $D^0 \to \pi^- \pi^+ \pi^+ \pi^-$ using CLEO-c data is discussed and the performance of the algorithm is verified on simulated data, showing convergence to the original model.
When universal edge-colored directed graph $C^*$-algebras are exact
Benton Duncan
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: We consider when the universal $C^*$-algebras associated to edge-colored directed graphs are nuclear. Specifically, we consider first finite graphs and show that the universal $C^*$-algebra is exact if and only if certain natural corners in the $C^*$-algebra are exact. We then analyze such corners to determine when they give rise to exact $C^*$-algebras. Then we use direct limits to extend these results to the case when the separated graph is row-finite.
Graph theoretic invariants for operator algebras associated to topological dynamics
Benton Duncan
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: We expand on some invariants used for classifying nonselfadjoint operator algebras. Specifically to nonselfadjoint operator algebras which have a conditional expectation onto a commutative diagonal we construct an edge-colored directed graph which can be used as an operator algebra invariant.
