    Social Interest in Rate Regulation in West Virginia

    The purpose of this paper is to attempt to throw some small light upon the hitherto relatively unexplored and uncharted field concerning the desire of the State of West Virginia, through its Supreme Court of Appeals and its Public Service Commission, to act as a guardian of the social interests of the state and its people. This discussion will be limited in its scope to the determination of whether these two bodies have ever considered such social interests when determining the reasonableness of the rates to be charged to patrons by the public utilities in this state

    \u27Tomboy\u27 is Anachronistic. But the Concept Still Has Something to Teach Us

    Get PDF
    This article explores the tomboy trope in film and literature and the taming that characterizes it, framing both in relation to contemporary debates about gender and sexual identity as well as cultural anxieties around queer, trans, and nonbinary identity. Examining texts from Louisa May Alcott\u27s Little Women to the 1980 film Little Darlings, the article argues that even while the term tomboy may be obsolete, tomboy narratives document processes of rebellion that hold continuing value

    Dimensions of the Use of Volunteered Geographic Information in Mass Crisis Events

    Recent studies have suggested that catastrophic events that trigger mass evacuation require surrounding communities to be well-prepared to act as ingress or pass-through areas for potential evacuees; however surrounding rural communities may have insufficient disaster-related logistical resources. In the response phase of disaster management, officials must be able to deploy resources to demand locations in types and quantities based on real-time requirements. Effective cross-jurisdictional disaster management needs real-time information, which is usually unavailable from official, authoritative sources. Conversely, VGI (volunteered geographic information) has the capability to provide real-time and local information in disaster management. This study investigates the possibility of utilizing real-time or near real-time VGI in mass evacuation scenarios. The study identifies a potential VGI data source, Tweets from Twitter and how to search for, discover and select relevant Tweets. The dissertation proposes research methods for harvesting, managing live Tweets and saving them to a distributed geodatabase for further spatio-temporal analysis and dissemination to users, such as responders and evacuees.;The study implements a Web GIS application, which includes a tweets discovery component, a geo-tagged tweets mapping component, and an online geo-tagged tweets operation component. The major research goals include designing an application programing interface (API) to harvest relevant Tweets and implement a distributed geodatabase system for storage, analysis, and display of the harvested Tweets so that vital information can be distributed in near real-time. Two case studies, based on Super Storm Sandy in 2012 and a shooting at Kent State University in 2014, were used to evaluate the pros and cons of Tweets from Twitter for response in emergency management and offered prototypes for the development of the final on-line Web GIS
