...FROM LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT TO SOUL MATE: ROMANTIC IDEALS IN POPULAR FILMS AND THEIR ASSOCIATION WITH YOUNG PEOPLE‘S BELIEFS ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS BY VERONICA HEFNER DISSERTATION Submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Speech Communication in the Graduate College of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 2011 Urbana, Illinois Doctoral Committee: Professor Barbara J. Wilson, Chair Associate Professor John P. Caughlin Associate Professor Kristen Harrison Associate Professor Travis L. Dixon ABSTRACT Romantic comedy films have been popular since motion pictures first entered the media world. Scholars have speculated why these movies remain appealing to viewers and have argued for several reasons. These movies might foster hope about real-life romance (Galician, 2004), or demonstrate that that there are no limits to how love may manifest itself (Harvey, 1998). Despite this speculation, few studies have systematically investigated the content of these movies or the effects they may have on viewers. The purpose of this dissertation was to investigate that potential. In particular, I conducted two studies that explored the nature of romantic ideals in romantic comedy films and their influence on viewer endorsement of romantic beliefs. The first study was a content analysis of the themes or romantic ideals embedded in romantic comedies. The second study was a survey designed to explore whether exposure to......

Audit Evidence

...CHAPTER 4 AUDIT EVIDENCE AND AUDIT DOCUMENTATION Answers to Review Questions 4-1 Auditors typically divide the financial statements into components or segments in order to make the audit more manageable. A component can be a financial statement account or a business (transaction) process. This approach allows the auditor to gather evidence by examining the processing of related transactions through the accounting system from their origin to their ultimate disposition in the accounting journals and ledgers. Thus, the auditor can examine an accounting transaction from the time it is initiated by the entity until its final recording in the financial statement accounts. 4-2 The financial statements contain management's assertions about the various financial statement components. The auditor tests management’s assertions by conducting audit procedures that provide evidence on whether each relevant assertion is supported. The results from applying audit procedures provide the evidence that supports the fair presentation of management’s assertions and the auditor's report (see Figure 4-1). 4-3 Assertions about classes of transactions and events for the period under audit: Assertion Definition Occurrence Transactions and events that have been recorded have occurred and pertain to the entity (sometime referred to as validity). Completeness All transactions and events that should have been recorded have been recorded. Authorization All transactions and events......

Parole Evidence

...How justified is the fact that Parole Evidence Rule has outlived its importance in the modern day life? The parol evidence rule has long been a controversial element of the common law system. It has been frequently attacked for the injustices that result from its application and sometimes even for a lack of rationality in its justification. This exposition results from the conviction that useful light can be shed on the problems surrounding the parol evidence rule by an examination of its status in other common law jurisdictions, where it has also been the subject of constant dispute throughout the previous half century. The written document produced by the parties is merely a memorandum of the agreement that they have reached. Consequently, when a court attempts to resolve a dispute regarding the agreement, the written document is construed as persuasive evidence of what was agreed, and can be contradicted by other evidence tending to show that the actual agreement was something different. By contrast, the objective theory of contracting holds that the written document is in fact the agreement itself, so that in attempting to discern the nature of the bargain between the parties it is improper to admit evidence that contradicts the written document. Since the actual intentions of the parties are not being considered by the court, evidence that would tend to demonstrate that their intentions were something other than the written document reflects is simply......

...Rule. The exclusionary rule mandates that evidence obtained from an illegal arrest, unreasonable search, or coercive interrogation must be excluded from trial. Under the fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine, evidence is also excluded from trial if it was gained through evidence uncovered in an illegal arrest, unreasonable search, or coercive interrogation. Like the exclusionary rule, the fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine was established primarily to deter law enforcement from violating rights against unreasonable searches and seizures.(Legal Dictionary, 2008) The name fruit of the poisonous tree is thus a metaphor: the poisonous tree is evidence seized in an illegal arrest, search, or interrogation by law enforcement. The fruit of this poisonous tree is evidence later discovered because of knowledge gained from the first illegal search, arrest, or interrogation. The poisonous tree and the fruit are both excluded from a criminal trial.(Legal Dictionary, 2008) That being stated, then no the Supreme Court should not hold up his conviction, they should actually over turn it. Also this would open up to double jeopardy as well if they tried the try him again for the same crime. Should the womans in court identification hold up?

...[pic] Christian Relationships Unit 1: Worship 1. Preliminary concerns 1.1. Misconceptions about worship The first popular misconception is that ‘worship is singing’. We treat ‘worship’ and ‘singing praises’ as synonymous terms. We speak as if they are the same thing. To reduce worship to singing is to dilute the biblical concept of worship in a way that is grossly irresponsible. It reduces the richness of biblical worship to one of its components. Yet when many Christians today commonly speak about worship, they mean nothing more than ‘singing’. |When you think or speak of worship, do you automatically associate it with ‘singing worship songs’? Is this the common usage| |in your church? If so, how do you think this fault crept into your vocabulary? | | | There are probably many ways this misconception has crept into our language and our thought. One key factor is that we have tended to label Christian music as ‘worship’, and we often call the person who leads the singing in our churches ‘the worship leader’. Unfortunately, this has caused us to equate worship with singing. A second misconception is that ‘worship is something we do on special occasions’. Worship is what we do when we gather with God’s people. The activities that......

The Relationship of Excess Body Weight and Health-Related Quality of Life: Evidence from a Population Study in Taiwan

...The relationship of excess body weight and health-related quality of life: evidence from a population study in Taiwan I-C Huang, C Frangakis, and AW Wu Abstract Objective: Excess body weight is related to significant morbidity and mortality. However, less is known about the relationship of body weight to health-related quality of life (HRQOL), especially for Asian populations. We examined the relationship of excess weight and HRQOL in a general population sample from Taiwan. Research methods and procedures: This cross-sectional study used a national representative sample (n=14221) from the 2001 Taiwan National Health Interview Survey. Body weight was categorized using body mass index (BMI in kg/m2) as normal (18.5–24.9), overweight (25–29.9), and obese (>=30). HRQOL was measured using the Taiwan version of the SF-36. We compared the body weight–HRQOL relationships by age, gender, and status of chronic condition, respectively. We especially used the Generalized Estimating Equations (GEE) to examine the relationships of BMI and HRQOL by taking into account the correlations of HRQOL within households. Four models were developed to adjust sequentially for sets of covariates: Model 1 with no adjustment; Model 2 adjusting for socio-demographic variables; Model 3 adding chronic conditions; Model 4 further adding smoking status. Results: Unadjusted physical HRQOL was best for normal weight, worse for overweight, and worst for obese individuals. For unadjusted mental HRQOL,......

Relationships

...An interpersonal relationship is a strong, deep, or close association/acquaintance between two or more people that may range in duration from brief to enduring. This association may be based on inference, love, solidarity, regular business interactions, or some other type of social commitment. Interpersonal relationships are formed in the context of social, cultural and other influences. The context can vary from family or kinship relations, friendship, marriage, relations with associates, work, clubs, neighborhoods, and places of worship. They may be regulated by law, custom, or mutual agreement, and are the basis of social groups and society as a whole. Field of study The study of interpersonal relationships involves several branches of the social sciences, including such disciplines as sociology, psychology, anthropology, and social work. Interpersonal skills are extremely vital when trying to develop a relationship with another person. The scientific study of relationships evolved during the 1990s and came to be referred to as 'relationship science', which distinguishes itself from anecdotal evidence or pseudo-experts by basing conclusions on data and objective analysis. Interpersonal ties are also a subject in mathematical sociology. Importance of interpersonal relationships Human beings are innately social and are shaped by their experiences with others. There are multiple perspectives to understand this inherent motivation to interact with others. Need to......

...particular time as in R v Lumley where the accused, a woman, was tried for bigamy. It was proved that the woman married A in 1836, left him in 1843, and married another man in 1847. Nothing was heard of A after the accused left him, nor was any evidence given of his age, but the judge, holding that there was a presumption of law that A was alive at the date of the second marriage, withdrew the case from the jury and directed them to return a verdict of guilty. It was upheld by the Court of Crown Cases Reserved that there was no presumption of law either in favour, or against, the continuance of A's life up to 1847. The conviction was quashed. (d) Presumption of death . There is a presumption of law as to death arising from seven years' unexplained absence. In Chard v Chard , it was alleged that the ceremony of marriage in 1933 between the petitioner and the respondent was a nullity. The petitioner had been married to another woman in 1909 and had last heard of her in 1917. The question was whether she should be presumed to be dead in 1933. The court inferred that he was alive then, and held the ceremony of 1933 null. Sachs J stated that for the presumption to take effect it must be shown – (i) that there is no affirmative evidence that the person in question was alive at some time during a continuous period of seven years or more from persons who would be likely to have heard of him over that period; (ii) that those persons who are likely to hear of him have not......

...Case 1 The court ruled the State failed to show that the items seized were the same items tested because the description of the items by the chemist did not match exactly the description given by the arresting officer. The court also held the State did not establish proof of handling, delivery, presence and safekeeping, which were necessary to establishing chain of custody. To avoid this result the police should always properly document the evidence and who has control of the evidence by using badge numbers and names on the forms provided for the evidence. Case 4 The defendant did intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly cause bodily injury to Shelby Hooper by biting her.At trial, the State introduced evidence that the police were dispatched to a hotel room that had recently been the scene of an altercation between appellant and Hooper.   Hysterical and crying, Hooper told the officers that appellant had struck her with his fists and bitten her.   Consistent with Hooper's statements, officers observed a cut on her lip and bite marks on her back and buttocks.   After admitting, during questioning, that he had hit Hooper in the head with a closed fist, appellant was arrested. Hooper testified for the defense. She stated that she had provided the police with a misleading picture of what really occurred on the evening of the alleged assault. With regard to the allegation that appellant hit her with his hand, she claimed that she was the aggressor that evening and that......

...Evidence October 2007 Brief 6 of 6 issue brief In February 2007, AcademyHealth conducted a meeting on behalf of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation examining the role of consumer engagement in improving the quality of health care. In preparation for this meeting, five papers were commissioned on the following subjects: consumer activation, consumer choice of health plan and provider, consumer choice of treatment, patient navigation, and the appropriate role for consumers. This issue brief is based on the consumer choice of health plans and providers paper, which was authored by Jonathan Kolstad and Michael Chernew, Ph.D. Consumer Choice in the Health Insurance and Provider Markets: A Look at the Evidence Thus Far may or may not be evidence-based. Because consumer choice of health plans and providers drives cost and quality outcomes, consumers are being asked to make use of these formally reported data as they assume greater responsibility for their health and health care decisions. Despite the momentum in this area, it is not easy for consumers to make evidencebased decisions about their health plans and providers. There are several reasons for this. First, there is a relative dearth of information on quality. Second, choosing between health plans is not as simple as it once was because there is no one-size-fits-all or “right” answer. Third, out-of-pocket costs are increasingly a factor. Consumers are also at a distinct information disadvantage when it comes......

...standard explains what constitutes audit evidence and establishes requirements regarding designing and performing audit procedures to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence. 2.     Audit evidence is all the information, whether obtained from audit procedures or other sources, that is used by the auditor in arriving at the conclusions on which the auditor's opinion is based. Audit evidence consists of both information that supports and corroborates management's assertions regarding the financial statements or internal control over financial reporting and information that contradicts such assertions. OBJECTIVE 3.     The objective of the auditor is to plan and perform the audit to obtain appropriate audit evidence that is sufficient to support the opinion expressed in the auditor's report.1/  SUFFICIENT APPROPRIATE AUDIT EVIDENCE 4.     The auditor must plan and perform audit procedures to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence to provide a reasonable basis for his or her opinion. 5.     Sufficiency is the measure of the quantity of audit evidence. The quantity of audit evidence needed is affected by the following: • Risk of material misstatement (in the audit of financial statements) or the risk associated with the control (in the audit of internal control over financial reporting). As the risk increases, the amount of evidence that the auditor should obtain also increases. For example, ordinarily more evidence is needed to respond to......

...consolidation of fingerprint databases will enable cross-referencing to be done easily. For instance, the PDRM-BIOFIS fingerprint database contains the fingerprints of criminals. These criminals are often under travel restriction, and upon cross-referencing with the NERS fingerprint database will allow easy refusal of entry and exit at immigration points. Identification of fingerprint is often useful and regularly resorted to when necessary. In the case of PP v. Toh Kee Huat[2] , Ong J acquitted the accused at the close of the prosecution because the only evidence against the accused was his fingerprint and the ‘accused’s fingerprint’, among other unidentified ones on the window of the car, which was left standing in a place accessible to anyone, cannot be legally sufficient to infer his guilty. “With respect, I do not understand what is meant by, legally sufficient’. At any rate, the weight of evidence of finger prints can never be decried. The respondent’s finger print was found on the side surface of the glass. The mark could not have been made there except after someone (if not himself) had unlawfully tampered with the locked car to gain entry. That finger print could only have been made during the hours of darkness when the car was taken, or before its discovery next morning. The position of the mark alone makes it self-evident that was not made by a casual passer-by.” There is no question that a clear prima facie case had been made out which if......

...HPNA Position Statement Evidence-Based Practice Background Increased attention is being directed toward the development of methods that can provide valid and reliable information about what works best in healthcare. The careful scientific evaluation of clinical practice became a prominent focus during the second half of the 20th century.1 More recently, attention has been paid to methods of determining which of multiple proven approaches to a healthcare problem works best for which patients.2 Evidence-based practice encompasses implementing the best-known practices into the clinical setting using a scientific approach. It evolved from evidence-based medicine, which was developed in Canada to teach medical students. “Evidence-based medicine has been defined as the conscientious, explicit, and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients.”3, p. 3 The National Quality Forum’s report A National Framework and Preferred Practices for Palliative and Hospice Care Quality is a consensus report that is a first step toward introducing evidence-based measures into palliative practice on a formal, national level.4 The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) supports organizations in their efforts to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare by facilitating the use of evidence-based research findings in clinical practice.5 The nursing discipline has also embraced evidence-based practice over the past 25 years, initially......
