    AI as Collaborative Muse: Enhancing Pre-Writing for Academic Authors

    Get PDF
    AI writing tools raise concerns of misuse in academics. However, AI can aid, not automate, pre-writing. The author shows how AI can assist scholarly writing through activities like organizing freewriting notes into outlines, recommending titles and journals, and summarizing/comparing literature. AI expedites idea generation, focus, literature review and positioning - serving as a collaborative muse, not replacement, for human creativity

    Tax Streams, Land Rents, and Urban Land Allocation

    Get PDF
    This paper examines the fiscal motives behind municipal governments\u27 decisions to allocate commercial and residential land when two categories of land use are subject to different fiscal revenue alternatives: business-related tax and/or land rent. We use urban parcel-level land transfers during China’s peak period of urbanization, match commercial parcels with residential parcels, and find significant price discounts on commercial parcels relative to adjacent residential parcels. The observed discounts arise from the future tax flows from commercial use, i.e., expected taxes from developed commercial land reduce its transfer price. We conduct a structural estimation to examine the implications on land use structure of future taxes lowering land transfer prices. Results show that while prospective taxes increase commercial land supply, a significant portion of the favorable treatment impact is mitigated by market price responses, suggesting that the land market counters commercial land favoritism when local revenues include both business-related taxes and land value-based charges. The results have implications for the design of urban public revenue systems

    Waiving SNAP Interviews during the COVID-19 Pandemic Increased SNAP Caseloads

    Get PDF
    Food insecurity in the United States reached historically high rates during the COVID-19 pandemic, thus substantially increasing demand for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). To facilitate access to SNAP during the pandemic, the federal government granted state SNAP offices the option to waive the interview requirement – an administrative burden associated with the SNAP certification process. This brief summarizes findings from a recent study that used data from SNAP offices across 10 states to examine the impact of SNAP interview waivers on SNAP caseloads from January 5th to April 30th of 2021. Findings reveal that counties that implemented the SNAP interview waiver experienced an estimated 5% increase in SNAP caseloads compared to counties that did not

    Bolstering Student Writing Through the Reading-to-Critique and Reading-to-Synthesize Approach

    The authors elucidate two key components of the reading-to-write process—critique and outlining. The researchers, who are also classroom teachers, qualitatively examined the perspectives of undergraduate and graduate students on these instructional approaches in two IEPs.

    Cognitive Functioning among U.S. Older Adults Differs by Gender and Urbanicity

    Get PDF
    There are no widely accessible and effective medical therapies to prevent or treat Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias for the U.S. older adult population, making prevention of cognitive decline particularly important. Many social factors shape cognitive functioning, leading to disparities in cognitive functioning across groups and geographic areas. This data slice uses data from the Health Retirement Study to describe how cognitive functioning among adults ages 50+ differed by gender and across urban, suburban, and ex-urban areas in the U.S. from 1999-2016. The results show that cognitive functioning was higher among women than men, but these gender differences varied by urban, suburban, and ex-urban residence
