  3. U.S. monetary policy normalization and global interest rates

    Caceres, Carlos; Carriere-Swallow, Yan; Demir, Ishak; Gruss, Bertrand
    As the Federal Reserve continues to normalize its monetary policy, this paper studies the impact of U.S. interest rates on rates in other countries. We find a modest but nontrivial pass-through from U.S. to domestic short-term interest rates on average. We show that, to a large extent, this comovement reflects synchronized business cycles. However, there is important heterogeneity across countries, and we find evidence of limited monetary autonomy in some cases. The co-movement of longer term interest rates is larger and more pervasive. We distinguish between U.S. interest rate movements that surprise markets versus those that are anticipated, and find...

  4. How does the use of scaling from the the OSKAR framework impact upon student progress and emotional wellbeing?

  6. How irrelevant is work and organizational psychology really?

    Bal, P. Matthijs
    In this short opinion piece, I reflect on why WOP research is irrelevant, and may even be dangerous in complying to existing norms in society about how workers should behave. The views expressed in this piece are solely my own, and I solely carry any responsibility for what is expressed here. In order to elicit positive, constructive change, we need to be able to have an open mind, and acknowledge our own weaknesses.

    Croft, Paul
    Ss. Peter & Paul is a grade I listed building and therefore of exceptional interest. The church is planning re-roofing work to the nave and tower in 2017 along with a number of associated investigations. Further to this, Historic England requested a preliminary investigation of a pair of wall paintings (included in the listing notice) extant in the nave. Little, or no investigations have been carried on the paintings in the past and until this point have remained largely enigmatic. The wall paintings were assessed in terms of their: significance, conservation needs and opportunities, and recommendations for further research. An...

  14. Student as producer: research-engaged teaching, an institutional strategy

    Neary, Mike; Saunders, Gary; Hagyard, Andy; Derricott, Dan
    Student as Producer is a curriculum development project that has been ongoing at the University of Lincoln since 2007. The aim of the project has been to promote research-engaged teaching as the organising principle for teaching and learning across all subjects and all levels of taught provision at Lincoln. While there are many examples of research-engaged teaching in higher education what makes the curriculum distinctive at Lincoln is that research-engaged teaching is the default position for all teaching and learning at the University. While Student as Producer has been under development at Lincoln since 2007 this report focuses on the period 2010-2013, when the University of...

  16. Cats and the law: a report for International Cat Care (iCatCare) (formerly the Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB))

    Nurse, Angus; Ryland, Diane
    This research examines the legal status of cats, within the UK’s legal system (primarily in England and Wales) but also in an international context. It considers a range of different areas of law and conflicting perspectives within the UK’s animal welfare, contract, criminal and environmental law and also addresses issues of ownership and liability. In particular, the research examines how both domestic and wild cats are subject to different protection under the law and the manner in which ambiguities concerning the status of wild and domestic cats impose liability on humans for their actions in dealing with cats. The research was commissioned by the Feline Advisory Bureau...

  18. Broadway rhythm: imaging the city in song

    Symonds, Dominic
    Broadway showtunes are legendary anthems to showbiz and paeans to ‘the city that never sleeps’. Time and again Broadway has turned a mirror on itself, writing songs, shows and storylines about showbiz, New York, or the great white way itself. This monograph explores New York through the music, the dance and the performance of its celebrated showtunes; more than this, it explores how Broadway as a phenomenon has ‘mapped’ the cultural and social development of Manhattan in its songs. Broadway Rhythm brings a post-structuralist approach to New York and its showtunes to consider how the songsmiths 'musicalise their vision of the...

  20. On the merits of the Gaussian Mixture as a model for oriented edgel distributions

    Assheton, Philip; Hunter, Andrew
    The aim of this report is to establish the credibility of the Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM) as a model for the distributions of oriented edgels of rigid and biological objects in noisy images. This is tackled in two stages: first, the response of the Soble filter to noisy pixels is analysed to show that the result holds for smooth ridid objects. Second, arguments are presented to support the proposition that the model can also effectively capture the added uncertainty introduced by natural shape variation, as found in images of biological objects. The result has particular application in the extension of...
