"Yearly, the Media, Diversity, & Social Change (MDSC) Initiative examines inequality on screen and behind the camera across the 100 top grossing domestic films. To date, we have evaluated 35,205 characters across 800 of the most popular movies from 2007‐2015. Every independent speaking or named character on screen was assessed for gender, race/ethnicity, and LGBT status as well as avariety of demographic, domesticity, and sexualization measures. In 2015, we began assessing the portrayal of character disability as well. Clearly, this is the most comprehensive and rigorous intersectional analysis of independent speaking and named characters in popular motion picture content to date."
Titre: Keeping Abreast of Hypersexuality: A Video Game Character Content Analysis Auteur:Downs, Edward; Smith, Stacy Sujet:Video games ; Sexuality ; Content analysis ; Social cognitive theory Description:
This study examined male and female sexuality in video game characters. The top 20, best selling console (Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation2, and Nintendo GameCube) video games from the U.S. market for fiscal year 2003 were content analyzed. The 60 video games yielded a total of 489 separate characters with an identifiable sex for coding. Chi-square analyses indicated that female characters ( n = 70) were underrepresented in comparison to their male counterparts ( n = 419) as hypothesized. In comparison to male characters, females were significantly more likely to be shown partially nude, featured with an unrealistic body image, and depicted wearing sexually revealing clothing and inappropriate attire as also predicted. Implications for these findings are discussed using social cognitive theory as a theoretical anchor.

Titre: Assessing Gender-Related Portrayals in Top-Grossing G-Rated Films Auteur:Smith, Stacy; Pieper, Katherine; Granados, Amy; Choueiti, Marc Sujet:Content analysis ; Gender ; Stereotype ; Children’s films Description:
The purpose of this content analysis was to examine gender-related portrayals in popular G-rated films. Our research questions addressed the prevalence and nature of males and females in general-audience fare. To answer our research queries, 101 of the top-grossing box office films released theatrically in the United States and Canada from 1990 to early 2005 were assessed. The results showed that males outnumber females by a ratio of 2.57 to 1, which has not changed in fifteen years. Females were more likely than males to be young and depicted traditionally. In terms of personality traits, females were more likely to be smart, good, and beautiful than were males.

Titre: Application of the Altruistic Behavior Coding Scheme to Cross-Cultural Contexts Auteur:Smith, Sandi W; Bresnahan, Mary J; Smith, Stacy L Sujet:Social and Cultural Anthropology ; Altruism ; Communal Cultures ; Individualistic Cultures Description:
Smith and Smith claimed that altruistic action “is intended to benefit others beyond simple sociability or duties associated with role.” This definition will need to be carefully applied to behavior in communal cultures as they have extended obligation networks, the basis of which are expected helping behaviors offered to others in the network. Therefore, behaviors that would be captured by the coding scheme in an individualistic culture would not necessarily be seen as altruistic in a communal culture as they may be non-voluntary and role-related. Six components of altruistic behavior are addressed here, and two of these are predicted to differ according to the culture in which they are enacted. These are determining whether the act was motivated by a primary concern for the other and whether the actor would be likely to engage in self blame if he or she did not engage in the action. The other three components of altruistic behavior are postulated to operate pan-culturally. ...
Titre: Sustainable Farm Practice: Study of Total and Soluble Phosphorus in a Poultry Farm Equipped with Heavy Use Area Protection Pads, Dover, Delaware Auteur:Ozbay, Gulnihal; Khatiwada, Raju; Chintapenta, Lathadevi K; Handy, Eunice F; Smith, Stacy L Sujet:Livestock Production/Industries ; Poultry Farm ; Heavy Use Area Protection ; Huap ; Phosphorus ; Soil Testing Description:
Poultry litter contains high concentrations of water-soluble phosphorus and is readily transported in the farm run-off. This research aims to study the efficiency of heavy use area protection (HUAP) pads in decreasing litter spillage and phosphorous run-off at a Delaware poultry facility. Soil and water samples were analyzed for pH, total phosphorous, orthophosphate, and Mehlich III phosphorous throughout 2012. It has been hypothesized that the efficiency of HUAP pads would be reduced over time. Mehlich III phosphorus ranged from 22.82-200 mg/kg at site I, and 48.17 – 1179.6 mg/kg at site II, which were greater than the optimal soil concentrations. However, in the run-off, orthophosphate and total phosphorous levels were less than 0.05mg/L, and below U.S. EPA limits. This confirms that the HUAP pads, along with vegetative buffer strips, restricted the seepage of phosphorous into the run off. The results suggest minimal loss of nutrients from poultry house to water bodies....
