Telenovela in Multimedia Platforms: analysis of a Brazilian experience
Nilda Jacks,Daniela Schmitz,Erika Oikawa,Lourdes Ana Pereira Silva
Estudos em Comunica??o , 2011,
Abstract: This work aims to analyzing the strategies of a Brazilian television broadcasting corporation when it promotes the interaction between a ctional product and the social networks that are weaved around its plot and characters, including its actors, screenwriters and directors. The topic was the Brazilian telenovela Viver a Vida broadcast by Rede Globo de Televis o in 2010, and which, in the current context of convergence, has its storytelling over owing into a multiplatform scenario, fed both by the producers’ strategies and by the audience’s behavior. Following the trend of expanding the storytelling by using the Internet, Viver a Vida used several publicity strategies for its plot, and narrative events often merged with extra-narrative events in the production of content about the narrative, pervading various media: of cial and unof cial websites, social networking websites, and blogs, as well as the traditional media. The result is a dialogue between media and society, which was triggered also by other companies and journalistic content, generating news not only about the plot and its characters but also about the themes approached within the narrative. The telenovela producers have thus invested in crossmedia strategies to expand the ctional narrative beyond television and its consumers produce their own content and exchanging their impressions about the telenovela via Twitter, which has generated a great real-time conversation. Online social networks have therefore become an important stage for the interaction among the spheres of audience and production, thus enabling the former to have a direct channel through which they can expose their opinions about the narrative, whereas the latter has obtained a “thermometer” about how the plot has been consumed.

Os resultados nos permitem inferir que a forma de consumir e de ser receptor se modifica no atual contexto de convergência em que mídias e indivíduos est o inseridos
Producers’ Preference for Price Instability?  [PDF]
Andrew Schmitz
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.810114
Abstract: The debate over whether producers prefer price instability to price stability continues, especially where policies are often endorsed that aim at generating stability. Such policies include the holding of agriculture commodity stocks by government to bring about price stability. But why would producers support such a policy given that producers prefer price instability, or do they? Oi argues that producers prefer price instability, which is opposite to the conclusion reached by Massell. In this paper, we take up the issue as to producers’ preference for price instability using the classic welfare economic framework used by Massell and Just et al. We develop a producer price expectation model that brings about price stability, which is possible without storage. We use this as the basis upon which to compare price stability to price instability. Our conclusion is that producers prefer price instability regardless of whether it is due to demand or supply shocks.
Compensation and the Twin Producer Gains from Production Quotas  [PDF]
Troy G. Schmitz, Andrew Schmitz
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2011.13015
Abstract: The limited theory on production quotas focuses on the impact of introducing quotas when otherwise the market would be competitive. We develop a model also on the effect of removing quotas, and then consider the combined effects of both introducing and removing quotas. Under the value of quota approach, the amount of money spent by the government for the buyout (i.e., value of quota) is equal to the sum of the net gain to producers when the quota was introduced plus the net gain if it were removed. Compensation is the key to a quota buyout, as producers have little interest in politically supporting a government compensated buyout unless they gain by so doing.
Inflated Production Quota Gains Paid for by a Consumption Tax  [PDF]
Troy G. Schmitz, Andrew Schmitz, Dwayne Haynes
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2012.21012
Abstract: We consider a production quota buyout that is paid for by a consumption tax. If producers are paid the true value of the quota via a consumption tax, the net producer gain is zero for the combined introduction and removal of quota (even though the quota value is positive) since the net gain to producers when the quota was introduced is equal to the net loss to producers when the production quota is removed. Therefore, the quota value does not measure the producer net gain from both the introduction and removal of the production quota. The quota value merely represents the consumption tax amount. This is also true if producers are paid (which is often the case) an inflated quota value that is more than the true quota value.
Transfer of Visuomotor Adaptation to Unpractised Hands and Sensory Modalities  [PDF]
Otmar Bock, Gerd Schmitz
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2013.412145

A recent model (Bock, 2013) predicts that sensorimotor adaptation, achieved while pointing at visual targets, will transfer fully to acoustic targets. The model further predicts that visual-to-acoustic transfer is not diminished even if the left and right arms have adapted to a different distortion. To scrutinize these predictions, we asked subjects to point at visual targets with their right hands under a +30 deg rotation of visual feedback (group “single”), or alternately, with their right hands under a +30 deg and with their left hands under a -30 deg rotation of visual feedback. Aftereffects were registered for each hand and for visual as well as acoustic targets, in counterbalanced order. We found that acoustic aftereffects were only about 66% of visual ones, which violates the first prediction and calls for an amendment of the model. We further found that acoustic aftereffects were of similar magnitude in both groups, which supports the second prediction. Finally, we observed an intermanual transfer of only about 29%. These findings suggest that unpractised acoustic inputs are weighted somewhat lower than practised visual ones, and that outputs to the unpractised left hand are weighted substantially lower than those to the practised right hand.

Temporal fluctuations in excimer-like interactions between pi-conjugated chromophores

Physics , 2015,
Abstract: Inter- or intramolecular coupling processes between chromophores such as excimer formation or H- and J-aggregation are crucial to describing the photophysics of closely packed films of conjugated polymers. Such coupling is highly distance dependent, and should be sensitive to both fluctuations in the spacing between chromophores as well as the actual position on the chromophore where the exciton localizes. Single-molecule spectroscopy reveals these intrinsic fluctuations in well-defined bi-chromophoric model systems of cofacial oligomers. Signatures of interchromophoric interactions in the excited state - spectral red-shifting and broadening, and a slowing of photoluminescence decay - correlate with each other but scatter strongly between single molecules, implying an extraordinary distribution in coupling strengths. Furthermore, these excimer-like spectral fingerprints vary with time, revealing intrinsic dynamics in the coupling strength within one single dimer molecule, which constitutes the starting point for describing a molecular solid. Such spectral sensitivity to sub-Angstrom molecular dynamics could prove complementary to conventional FRET-based molecular rulers.
Consumer Tax Production Quota Buyouts and Negative Compensation: Producers’ Dilemma  [PDF]
Andrew Schmitz, Dwayne J. Haynes, Troy G. Schmitz
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2013.33025

In some cases, production quota buyouts can be paid for through consumer taxes. Using a simplified two-period model, we show that producers can never gain from a consumer tax buyout even if the compensation is based on an inflated quota value. The higher the quota value used as the basis of compensation, the greater is the overall producer loss from the buyout. This producer loss within a two-period model buyout is called “negative producer compensation”.

Production Decoupling under US Farm Programs  [PDF]
Charles B. Moss, Andrew Schmitz, Troy G. Schmitz
Natural Resources (NR) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/nr.2014.51003

The loan rate and target price are key ingredients in US farm policy. Empirical models of the effect of US agricultural policy are based on different degrees of decoupling between price supports and production. Theoretically, rational producers will make decisions based on the loan rate rather than the target price. Therefore, models which are estimated based on a target price specification could significantly overestimate the distortionary impact of policy on resource use and production.

Valuing Carbon Recycling through Ethanol: Zero Prices for Environmental Goods  [PDF]
Charles B. Moss, Andrew Schmitz
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2014.43032

The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 imposes a Renewable Fuel Standard met through a combination of corn and cellulosic ethanol. A variety of rationales support this policy including the recycling of atmospheric carbon. This study examines the economic dimensions of this problem focusing on the role of zero prices for environmental goods and the use of an environmental equivalent. When environmental goods are taken into account, the optimal price policy cannot be defined with certainty.
