Is Gender Still an Issue for Parents’ Toy Preferences for Their Sons and Daughters?
Erden, Feyza (null; 2012-09-15)
Males and females are socialized diff erently. Children, beginning from the very early years of their lives, learn what females and males are supposed to be like and what they are supposed to do. Because of gender socialization, boys and girls grow up in diff erent psychological environments that shape their view of the world and their ways of dealing with problems (Zimbardo, 1992). A child makes the first interaction with her parents. Therefore, parents have the major impact on their children’s learning to...
Is the information deficiency in real estate evident in public market trading?
Downs, DH; Güner, Zehra Nuray (Wiley, 1999-09-01)
This paper examines the summary informativeness of trading in real estate securities. Prior literature on publicly traded real estate securities suggests that the information deficiency associated with local economies and unique rent dynamics will manifest itself as severe information asymmetry. To date, most studies concerned with these issues have focused on the conventional measures of liquidity (serial correlations, bid-ask spreads, etc.). However, the conventional measures have several shortcomings as ...
Is the black tie of Great Tits a signal in territorial interactions? An investigation with 3D printed models
Avşar, Alican; Bilgin, Cemal Can; Akçay, Çağlar (2021-08-02)
Animals often use signals to resolve aggressive interactions without resorting to physical aggression. For instance, in many bird species, melanin-based plumage traits serve as “badges of status” in settling conflicts in dominance hierarchies in winter flocks. Whether such badges are also functional as a signal in territorial interactions however is less studied. Here we ask whether the “black tie” of the great tits,Parus major,is used to assess territorial intruders by male great tits.Specifica...

EASTWICK, Paul W.; EAGLY, Alice H.; Glick, Peter; JOHANNESEN-SCHMIDT, Mary C.; FISKE, Susan T.; BLUM, Ashley M. B.; ECKES, Thomas; FREIBURGER, Patricia; HUANG, Li-li; LAMEIRAS FERNANDEZ, Maria; MANGANELLI, Anna Maria; PEK, Jolynn C. X.; RODRIGUEZ CASTRO, Yolanda; Sakallı, Nuray; SIX-MATERNA, Iris; VOLPATO, Chiara (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-05-01)
Social role theory (Eagly, Wood, & Diekman, 2000) predicts that traditional gender ideology is associated with preferences for qualities in a mate that reflect a conventional homemaker-provider division of labor. This study assessed traditional gender ideology using Glick and Fiske's (1996, 1999) indexes of ambivalent attitudes toward women and men and related these attitudes to the sex-typed mate preferences of men for younger mates with homemaker skills and of women for older mates with breadwinning poten...
Is There Knowledge Convergence Among European Regions? Evidence from the European Union Framework Programmes
Erdil, Erkan; Akçomak, İbrahim Semih (2021-03-01)
Hinging on the collaboration-induced knowledge diffusion literature, this paper aims at investigating how the landscape of knowledge production and diffusion has changed over the years and whether there is evidence of knowledge convergence among European regions. Using the European Union Framework Programme data from 1984 to 2016 and network analysis and regressions, we show that there are signs of knowledge convergence within the NUTS2 regions of Europe. Even though the top performers persist over the year...
