Jason (May 2011) Promoting recycling: private values, social norms, and economic incentives. American Economic Review, v. 101, iss. 3, pp 65-70

Viscusi, W., Kip; Huber, Joel; and Bell have used data taken from households to make a comparison to the need to recycle versus any incentives that may exist to do so. Plastic waters bottles are used in this and the discussion is about why individuals may recycle for statistical analyses have been gathered to formulate the behaviors of people that recycle and the reasons for doing so. Those people that have developed a way to dispose of plastic bottles will tend to do so the same way over and over again and why this is the social norm for a society. Laws that govern recycling in the U.S. are not consistent from state to state and yet people still recycle according to their own personal values on the subject. Policies on recycling have a wide effect on how people decide to recycle.

Viscusi, W., Kip; Huber, Joel; and Bell have collected information from many sources and analyzed this data to show the effects of recycling throughout various communities in the country. The information can be used for the project because it addresses the recycling aspects of a product and how consumerism impacts that decision. The article is written from information taken from a wide variety of sources that can each be verified because they are noted in the article. There has been a mathematical system made in the article to back up claims that are made and can be analyzed by the reader.

...Annotated Bibliography You Have Been Caught, What Now? Abstract The police have arrived and there is nowhere to run. Even if one did, they know a crime was committed and who has done it. Where does one go from here and what is going to happen? This will give the resources to follow the procedural justice process from beginning to end under normal and under unusual procedures. Regardless of the verdict there will be options along the way that may result in different outcomes throughout the process and some are unexpected. It all depends on the individual and how each case is handled by the police, the prosecutors, and the judges. Perhaps this will shed some light on the procedural process of the criminal justice system and how it really works. Introduction: What happens now? This annotated bibliography shows the procedural process of justice and how it progresses under normal circumstances for some and unusual circumstances for others. In the United States the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty. In a felony criminal case, the accused is “normally” investigated, arrested and booked, placed in a jail cell until the accused can be brought before a magistrate judge for the initial hearing called an arraignment, where the Miranda rights as well as the charges against the accused are read. Bond is discussed and granted or denied at this hearing. There is a Grand Jury hearing to discuss the merits of the case and it is “true billed” or dismissed. If it is......

...Annotated Bibliography What is an annotated bibliography? An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, web pages, and other documents. The reference citation is listed first and is followed by a brief description. The annotation informs the reader of the relevance and quality of the sources cited.

In certain classes, you will be asked to write an annotated bibliography, which sounds quite intimidating, but is simply a brief summary of something you have read or consulted during the course of your research on a given subject. The annotated bibliography has a structured format, and the purpose for this is to provide the organizational tool you need to keep track of your research and references. The bibliography may serve a number of purposes: illustrate the quality of research, provide examples, review literature on a particular subject, or provide further exploration of the subject.

...Annotated Bibliography: What the Literature Says About Juvenile Sex Offenders The following articles, factsheets, and studies have been compiled to assist attorneys and individuals working on behalf of youth charged with sexual offending. The information contained in these resources aim to help others realize the fundamental differences between adult sex offenders and juvenile sex offenders, which include positive responses of juveniles to treatment, low recidivism rates of juveniles and negative impact of registries on youth development. It is our hope that this information will be used to improve legal outcomes for juvenile sex offenders, and uphold the purpose of the juvenile justice system as a rehabilitative, not punitive, system.

Becker, What We Know About the Characteristics and Treatment of Adolescents Who have Committed Sexual Offenses, 3 CHILD MALTREATMENT 317, (1998).

Research in Higher Education 51(2),154-174. doi: 10.1007/s11162-009-9149-4. Associates with Research in Higher Education conducted a study in collaboration with the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to test a hypothesis that higher education degree attainment was based on many factors beyond the institution where the program originated, the primary category assessed by the Student Right to Know Act (SRK). Conducting their study over a six-year period, with the help of the NSC database and its 93 million student records, the researchers found that demographics, pervious academic ability, social integration, financial contribution, and gender all strongly affected student persistence. The singular focus of assessing degree attainment based solely on the originating institution was thusly challenged. The data supported a similar finding by the Higher Education Research Institute whose 2005 study indicated race, gender and type of learning institution were all contributing factors for degree attainment (Astin & Oseguera, 2005). Evaluating collective data, it appears multiple factors must be assessed to determine graduation attainment for students in higher learning institutes.......

Business Ethics Quarterly, 23(2), 171-205. doi:10.5840/beq201323214 The history of the field of business ethics in the U.S. remains understudied and misunderstood. In this article I begin to remedy this oversight about the past, and I suggest how it can be beneficial in the present. Using both published and unpublished primary sources, I argue that the business ethics field emerged in the early twentieth century, against the backdrop of the establishment of business schools in major universities. I bring to light four important developments: business ethics lectures at the University of California and Yale University, Leon Marshall's curriculum at the College of Commerce of the University of Chicago, and the William A. Vawter Foundation on Business Ethics at Northwestern University. Conflict resolution [electronic resource] Team Publications. (n.d). Amherst, Mass. HRD Press c2002.
