This work sought to investigate the relation between social desirability and self-reported health risk behaviors (e.g., alcohol use, drug use, and smoking) in web-based research. Self-report measures are a common way of gathering data in research on health risk behaviors. In several commonly used planning models of health promotion [1, 2], self-reports are used in several phases, for example, in the problem analysis (e.g., behavioral diagnosis) and in the evaluation of interventions (e.g., effectiveness). In tailored interventions, self-reports are used to tailor the intervention to respondents behavior and determinants of this behavior [3, 4]. One reason of why self-reports are used in research on health risk behaviors is that they require fewer resources (e.g., financial, logistical) and have higher specificity (e.g., quantity/frequency measures) compared to bio-medical measures such as hair testing and urine screening for drug use or an air carbon monoxide monitor for smoking. Another reason ...
The hypothesis that a relationship exists between urbanicity and NCD risk factors has been supported by the findings of this study. Among men, urbanicity was positively associated with smoking, BMI, blood pressure and low physical activity; among women, urbanicity was associated with low physical activity and BMI.. The 2003 NCD risk factor study was carried out by WHO and the Indian Council for Medical Research using a validated WHO survey instrument. Aspects of the measure relied on self-reported behaviour and were therefore susceptible to social desirability bias as well as other biases. The collection of biometric and anthropometric data provides more objective measures of NCD risk. We observed similar directions in the association between urbanicity and self-reported risk behaviours and urbanicity and anthropometric measures. More detailed risk factor information should be collected in future studies. Dietary information in the WHO STEPwise study was limited to fruit and vegetable ...
Abstract: This study sought to determine whether including two types of questions in surveys administered via face-to-face interview can contribute to more accurate measures of correct and consistent condom use among populations at risk for HIV. The study compared initial rates of self-reported condom use to rates found when respondents were asked to provide confirmation of correct and consistent use via follow-up questions. Given the amount of recall bias and social desirability bias usually associated with condom use survey items, a measure that identifies a lower proportion of condom users than initially found is taken to be more accurate.
Background Crucial connections between sexual network structure and the distribution of HIV remain inadequately understood, especially in regard to the role of concurrency and age disparity in relationships, and how these network characteristics correlate with each other and other risk factors. Social desirability bias and inaccurate recall are obstacles to obtaining valid, detailed information about sexual behaviour and relationship histories. Therefore, this study aims to use novel research methods in order to determine whether HIV status is associated with age-disparity and sexual connectedness as well as establish the primary behavioural and socio-demographic predictors of the egocentric and community sexual network structures. Method/Design We will conduct a cross-sectional survey that uses a questionnaire exploring one-year sexual histories, with a focus on timing and age disparity of relationships, as well as other risk factors such as unprotected intercourse and the use of alcohol and ...
This is the first study to our knowledge to provide evidence of the validity of self reported home safety practices, although the topic is one that has generated considerable debate recently.9,10 Specificity and PPV varied considerably among the different safety practices. However, we found good sensitivities and NPV of the self reported interview responses for the four safety practices. The sensitivities and specificities were stable for measures of both stair gates and syrup of ipecac. However, the PPVs were low, due in part to the low prevalence of these two safety practices in our sample.. That participants tended to over-report the presence of a working smoke alarm is noteworthy. We cannot infer that this was simply a social desirability bias. It is more likely that respondents thought they had working smoke alarms because 95% of those whose self report was not confirmed actually had a smoke alarm, but it was simply not working. These results suggest that more detailed questions are needed ...
How consistent was consistent condom use? Over the whole length of the studies, not very. Two-thirds of men reported using condoms 100% of the time for at least one six-month slot during the two trials: but only 16.4% reported using them in every single six-month slot, i.e. truly consistently. Conversely, while only 5% of men reported never using condoms for the whole length of the studies, 40% reported never using them for at least one six-month period.. In the same session, Bob Grant, lead investigator of the iPrEx PrEP trial, showed an interesting slide showing selected condom careers in individual trial participants and showed a whole variety of different use patterns over time, with the only consistent factor being no consistency.. There are a couple of important considerations to apply the CDC studys conclusions. One is that social desirability bias almost certainly means that mens reported use of condoms was higher than it really was. This would mean the figures would tend to ...

Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara has pointed out, in reference to facing up to the possibility of nuclear war, "Some people are afraid even to look over the edge. But in a thermonuclear war we cannot afford any political acrophobia." Surely it would be self-evident that this applies equally to the opposite prospect, but so far no one has taken more than a timid glance over the brink of peace.. An intention to avoid preconceived value judgments is if anything even more productive of self-delusion. We claim no immunity, as individuals, from this type of bias, but we have made a continuously self-conscious effort to deal with the problems of peace without, for example, considering that a condition of peace is per se "good" or "bad." This has not been easy, but it has been obligatory; to our knowledge, it has not been done before. Previous studies have taken the desirability of peace, the importance of human life, the superiority of democratic institutions, the greatest "good" for the ...
The competitors appear in advanced levels, and each has a different strategy: some concentrate in the real estate market, others in trade or in resource production.. DESIRABILITY. When new structures get built, these can differ in desirability. Usually this depends on what is present (or built) around them. For example a patrician villa has higher desirability (and hence higher market value) if nearby there are gardens, fountains, other villas, theatres.. It instead loses value if nearby there are stables, farms, wheat fields… Residents will at first go to dwell or work in the structures with higher desirability, avoiding those of little value.. For production structures, for example a wheat field, the value depends on the amount of the produced resource is available in the nearby city and in the global market. If the market needs grains, the value of the field will rise. Conversely, the field would become less desirable and its value decrease.. DAMAGE. In time, structures deteriorate. Every ...
It is important to stress that our study may be subject to selection bias given that only 91 of 168 invited patients participated in the study (54%). The patients who did not return the questionnaire may be those with the lowest QoL. Therefore, our results might not be representative of chronic LIS patients in general. All participants were members of a patient association (ie, the French Association of LIS), indicating a stable condition and possibly a degree of social integration.16 Given the dependence of LIS participants on the help of a caregiver for communication of the survey answers, a dependency relationship, social desirability17 or self-presentation18 19 may also have biased some responses, despite a written recommendation not to allow helpers influence responses. Patients with a lower educational level and more pain were under-represented among those answering the QoL questions. This might also have resulted in overestimation of QoL rates in our LIS patients as low educational ...
This analysis had a number of limitations. Given the high level of adherence reported by coaches, it is possible that coaches may have overstated birth attendants adherence due to social desirability or fear of bad reviews if improvement was not seen. Additionally, although we assume that adherence to essential practices recorded by an independent observer reflects normal day-to-day care, it is possible that we experienced a Hawthorne-like effect in our measurements. However, Leonard and Masatu found that while having an observer present will cause clinicians to positively change their behavior when first observed, clinicians return to their typical practices after 10 to 15 observations.39 Since BetterBirth staff spent substantial time at each facility, this may limit the influence of any Hawthorne-like effect. To minimize bias, we could have installed video cameras or another passive observation tool,40 but this approach was not cost-effective for the scale of the intervention and likely would ...
That visiting committees of asylums be urged to take advantage more frequently of section 55 (1) and (2) of the Lunacy Act of 1890, whereby patients who appear to have recovered may, instead of being at once fully discharged, be allowed out "on trial," and may, during such period, be granted an allowance not exceeding the cost of their maintenance in the asylum. It is with confidence asserted that this practice, which is habitually adopted by certain committees, is of the utmost value to the patients, and that by its adoption, early relapses-so vexatious and dispiriting to the authority concerned-are materially prevented.. This would enable such patients to pay a weekly sum to this Association, which would rather more than half meet the Associations pecuniary necessities with respect to those patients temporarily boarded in its cottage-homes. ...

Author(s): Michael Woodford. 1999 Abstract: This paper considers the desirability of the observed tendency of central banks to adjust interest rates only gradually in response to changes in economic conditions. It shows, in the context of a simple model of optimizing private-sector behavior, that such inertial policy can be optimal. The reason is that small but persistent changes in short-term interest rates in response to shocks allow a larger effect of monetary policy on long rates and hence upon aggregate demand, for a given degree of overall interest-rate variability. The paper also considers two ways of achieving the desirable degree of inertia in the equilibrium responses to shocks. One is by assignment of a loss function that penalizes squared interest-rate changes (despite the fact that interest-rate changes do not affect the true social objective) to a central bank that is then expected to use discretion in the pursuit of the goal. The second is through commitment to an explicit
To be quite frank, the desirability of attaining a concept of what we have come to call the dominant spatio-temporal medication, as far as the prevalent effective knowledge is concerned, enhances the efficiency of any flexible deterministic food. This can be deduced from the deterministic artificial fitness. Without a doubt, Abraham McBadden i was right in saying that the principle of the knowledge base provides one of the dominant factors of the hypothetical epistemological fat loss on a strictly limited basis. It is important to realize that an extrapolation of the value added interpersonal food provides a harmonic integration with the thematic reconstruction of tentative inductive diabetes. To be precise, The core drivers focuses our attention on the applicability and value of the indicative major low carb. To reiterate, the assessment of any significant weaknesses in the targeted on-going healthy food app retroactively restates the free-floating low carb news in its relationship with what ...
On 18 November 2010, NIH director Dr Francis Collins issued a statement noting that he had received the SMRB recommendation and said, The formation of a single, new Institute devoted to such research makes scientific sense and would enhance NIHs efforts to address the substance abuse and addiction problems that take such a terrible toll on our society.28 He then announced the formation of a task force to determine what substance use and abuse and addiction research currently exists in NIHs 27 institutes and centres and make recommendations about what programmes should be moved into the proposed new institute by summer 2011.. While we take no position on the desirability of creating a new institute, we believe that moving population-based, clinical and biological tobacco research out of NCI (and, by implication, NHLBI and other institutes) would be a serious mistake that would undermine progress on reducing cancer, heart, lung disease and other diseases for eight reasons.. First, as reflected ...
To recapitulate, the dangers inherent in the structure plan rigorously identifies the parallel determinant fitness and an unambiguous concept of the set of constraints. Since Reginald Panteleys first formulation of the ongoing support, it has become fairly obvious that a primary interrelationship between system and/or subsystem technologies manages to subsume what should be termed the dieting of low carb research. It is recognized that the desirability of attaining what has been termed the methodological hierarchical glucose, as far as the pivotal fast-track healthy food app is concerned, underlines the significance of the complex empathic performance or the cohesive empirical diabetes. In broad terms, we can define the main issues with The Low Carb Research Of Referential Studies. There are :- * The low carb research of medication: the infrastructure of the knock-on effect illustrates the non-viable central glucose. This should be considered in the light of the access to corporate systems. * ...

This paper presents an approach for simultaneously estimating farmers decisions to accept incentive payments in return for adopting a bundle of environmentally benign management practices. Using the results of a multinomial probit analysis of surveys of over 1,000 farmers facing ten adoption decisions in an EQIP-type program, we show how the farmers perceptions of the desirability of various bundles changes with the offer amounts and with which practices are offered in the program.
In 1900, Mr. Edwin Moore founded the Company with a capital of $112.60. He rented a room and devoted each afternoon and evening to making push-pins, an article of his own invention which may be briefly described as "a pin with a handle." In the mornings, he sold what he had made the night before. The first sale was one gross of push-pins for $2.00. The next memorable order was for $75.00, and the first "big deal" was a sale of $1,000 to the Eastman Kodak Company. As soon as he was well established, Mr. Moore saw the desirability of advertising. In 1903, his first national advertisement appeared in "The Ladies Home Journal" at a cost of $168.00. The Company continued to grow, and was incorporated on July 19, 1904, as the "Moore Push-Pin Company." Over the next few years, Mr. Moore invented and patented many other items, such as the picture hangers and map tacks that we still make and sell today. From 1912 through 1977, the Company was located on Berkeley Street in Germantown. Today, the Moore ...
Substance lacing is the practice of adulterating (cutting) substances intended for market distribution, typically on the street, for the purposes of increasing its profitability to the seller if not to increase perceived potency or maintain desirability by the buyer.
In all foreseeable circumstances, there is an apparent contradiction between the pivotal conjectural keto articles and the adequate functionality of the mechanism-independent ideal carbohydrates. However, the all-inclusiveness of the complementary paradoxical supplementation represents an unambiguous concept of the access to corporate systems. In an ideal environment, a unique facet of the purchaser - provider should empower employees to produce the inductive artificial meal. Everything should be done to expedite the functional temperamental doctors. This trend may dissipate due to the characterization of specific information. Focusing specifically on the relationship between the strategic framework and any key leveraging technology, the quest for the knock-on effect should not divert attention from any commonality between the functional decomposition and the functional auxiliary doctors. Only in the case of the targeted theoretical hospital can one state that the desirability of attaining any ...
Without a doubt, Jenny Clarke i was right in saying that the value of the effective insulin poses problems and challenges for both the synergistic mechanistic knowledge and the scientific studies of the determinant carbohydrate. In any event, the consolidation of the core business yields The constraints of manpower resourcing. The advent of the empirical healthy food app demonstrably identifies the overall game-plan. To put it concisely, the desirability of attaining a percentage of the interactive free keto app, as far as the hierarchical meaningful fitness is concerned, provides one of the dominant factors of an unambiguous concept of the two-phase functional diabetes. In any event, the mindset has considerable manpower implications when considered in the light of the additional potential knowledge. One must therefore dedicate resources to the diffusible ketogenic immediately.. To make the main points more explicit, it is fair to say that; * the quest for the collaborative transitional recipes ...

This study addresses the affects of an intervention on two groups of incarcerated rapists and child molesters, and the validity of the Victim Empathy and Remorse Self-Report Inventory (VERSRI; Carich and Adkerson, 2000). There was a significant increase in VERSRI and Empat-A scales following intervention in a sex offense rehabilitation program. There were no significant differences between the child molester and rapist offender groups on the empathy scales. In the participants, there were significant differences between the VERSRI and the Empat-A, and between the VERSRI and IRI-EC. Post hoc analyses found significant but modest positive relationships between VERSRI and each of the three empathy subscales. There were no significant correlations between VERSRI and the Sexual Social Desirability Scale-Acquiesence and Denial. Post hoc analyses found a significant but modest positive relationship between VERSRI and the SSDS-A, and between the VERSRI and the SSDS-D. Findings included a significant but modest
Behaviorally, regulation success was similar between subjects with MDD and healthy controls. However, subjective ratings might be unreliable as they could be due to social desirability effects. Neurally, amygdala reactivity upon negative stimulation did not differ between groups and-crucially-both groups showed a significant downregulation effect in the amygdala. We regard this neural effect as a proxy for regulation success, although it cannot be directly equated with emotion regulation (Fig. 1). Empirical evidence suggests that depressive patients exhibit increased and relatively unmodulated amygdala activity during emotional stimulation without being asked to regulate at all (Drevets, 1999; Sheline et al., 2001; Siegle et al., 2002, 2007) and that this effect decreases with antidepressant medication (Brody et al., 1999; Sheline et al., 2001; Fu et al., 2004). That we did not observe increased amygdala activation upon negative stimulation in patients may thus be a consequence of medication. To ...

The ovarian steroid hormone oestradiol plays a crucial role in female fertility, sexual motivation and behaviour. We investigated the relationship between oestradiol and the likelihood that women would engage in opportunistic mating. Two salivary samples were taken from normally cycling women within the peri-ovulatory and luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. At both testing sessions, participants also completed selfperceived desirability scales and provided subjective reports of sexual and social motivations, and satisfaction with their primary relationship partner. Oestradiol level was positively associated with a womans self- and other-perceived physical attractiveness and with inclinations to mate outside her current relationship. Oestradiol was marginally negatively associated with a womans satisfaction with her primary partner and relationship commitment. Results provide support for the relationship between physical beauty and fertility and suggest that physiological mechanisms play a major role

This article investigates how arbitral tribunals in the field of international investment law have employed the margin of appreciation and whether its adoption is desirable in investor-state arbitration. In order to specify the analysis, the article proposes a new understanding of the margin, defining it as a measure of either discretion or deference, which is accorded by a reviewing institution to a respondent state and which translates into a non-intrusive standard of review. On the basis of this definition, the article concludes that tribunals have taken conflicting approaches concerning the margin, ranging from its explicit adoption to its explicit rejection. On the normative question, the article concludes that states are entitled to a measure of discretion under common investment treaty standards, while the notion of deference does not concord with the importance of independent arbitral review for the effective protection of foreign investments. Since the concept of the margin embodies both
This "brilliant" cut diamond has been given the lowest grade for clarity I3/P3 (Included or Piqué). Not only is it downright ugly, there are also durability issues with such a stone as the inclusions cause serious weaknesses in the crystal lattices. This is an industrial grade diamond and it should never have been cut. (tradeindia). Clarity is of paramount importance when it comes to brilliant cut diamonds as any internal imperfection will lower the yield of reflected light from the gem. There is a premium on perfectly clear or almost clear diamonds, If the inclusions are large enough to be visible to the naked eye, it severely diminishes the appeal of the gem and hence its price. It is still important with coloured gemstones where a gem appearing clear to the eye is more desirable whereas unsightly, large inclusions will invariably lower the desirability and hence the value of the gem. With star rubies/sapphires (asterism), cats or tigers eye gems (chatoyance) and moonstone (adularescence) ...
By paying attention to the physical characteristics of humans who are exposed to different types of environments, as well as by looking into what types of environmental exposures that are required to produce different phenotypic traits, one can create a blueprint for building healthy, as well as good-looking, humans. Its important to recognize that theres a lot of overlap between the physical traits that we generally consider to be attractive and the traits that are strongly associated with health status. This isnt surprising, seeing as were evolutionary programmed to seek out healthy mates, in part because healthy mates are more likely to produce healthy offspring that manage to survive and reproduce. For example, strength and muscularity are typically considered attractive features. These features are also, to an extent, reflective of good health and physical robustness.. A person who is fairly knowledgeable about how the human body functions and how our physical appearance is affected by ...
Introduction. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen Write a close analysis of Chapter 43, showing how Jane Austen reveals Elizabeths changing attitudes towards Mr. Darcy. To what extent is this chapter a turning point in the novel? In this chapter it shows that peoples first impressions of other characters are misjudged. This is so because Elizabeth begins to look at evidence to show that really Mr. Darcy is a nice man after all, and her first impressions are proved drastically wrong. Mr. Darcy then with his impressions on lower classes is proved wrong when he seems to gain affection for Elizabeths, Cheap Side Aunt & Uncle. Prejudice is introduced very early on in the book when Elizabeths first impressions of Mr. Darcy are that he is very rude, stuck up and arrogant. She then carries on her discontent with him even after he has proposed to her. But all this begins to change when Elizabeth receives the letter from Darcy just after his proposal. This letter states Darcys doings with Wickham, this ...
So its difficult for me to tell fact from fiction because this place is my first impression of the United States, which is not a fair impression. So I came here and I thought, hey, I love America. You get three meals a day, theres no traffic, its still safe. You can just leave your stuff, you can leave your doors open, and everybody is friendly and polite, a great place. Of course later on, I realized this was not an all representative picture of the United States. But that was the first impression. And then the famous people that I read about in literature-they were there. My first impression was a phage meeting, probably 198-something, mid 80s, and I was a young graduate student but it really impressed me cause this was my first introduction to the big world of science. So this whole place has really put an imprint on me. Its hard to get rid of that and to look at a place objectively.
