For Australian LJers: Please participate in my two honours students' studies [Aug. 12th, 2008|01:00 pm]
Study 1: Attributions of Responsibility for Ambiguous Negative Events

Have you ever wondered how you attribute responsibility to others? How do you decide to blame certain people for certain negative events? What are your criteria for deeming someone more responsible than others in different situations? And why do you have those criteria?

If you are interested in such psychological mechanisms and cognitions then why not complete our online survey?
It's available at http://www.deakin.edu.au/psychology/research/anders/

We're investigating how Australians decide to assign responsibility to persons in various situations, and we would greatly appreciate your help. It will only take ten minutes of your time!

This research is being conducted by Anders Sonderlund of the School of Psychology at Deakin University Waterfront Campus, as part of his Honours degree in Psychology. You can contact Anders at also@deakin.edu.au or phone 0432 127 549.


Study 2: Funding for Competitors in International Sporting Events

As an Australian, what do you think about the funding for competitors in international sporting events such as the Olympic Games? Is it fair that different countries have different funding and resources for their competitors? Or is this just the way things are? How would YOU allocate funding to competitors from different countries? Why not complete our online survey looking at this issue?

If you would like to participate in the study, or just find out more, go to http://www.deakin.edu.au/psychology/research/sportsfunding/

This project is being conducted by Dane Barclay of the School of Psychology at Deakin University Waterfront campus, as part of his Psychology Honours degree. You can contact Dane on 0422 633 154, or at dteb@deakin.edu.au


Both studies close end September 2008

I'm going to be in the UK from 8 June to 19 July [Jun. 5th, 2008|09:05 pm]
[Current Mood |excitedexcited]

Well, with a week or so in Finland and somewhere else in Europe! Will be attending Conrunner in Wolverhampton over my birthday weekend (28-29 June), so may catch up with some of you then.

If not, get in touch - I've got a Britrail pass so can get around the UK fairly easily.

Survey on snacking at the movies (Victorians only - sorry!) [Jul. 23rd, 2007|03:34 pm]
[Tags|, ]

Just as a change from Harry Potter, hope those of you living in Victoria (Australia - sorry, Canadians!) could help my graduate diploma supervisees out, and participate in their online survey...

Go to the movies regularly but hate the unhealthy food available there? Or do you love it? Why not tell us what what you think!

As part of our Graduate Diploma in Psychology at Deakin University, we’re investigating people’s snacking at the movies. We’re looking for Victorians aged 18 and over to complete two confidential online surveys looking at what people think and do when it comes to snacking at the movies.

If you’re interested in participating or just want to find out more, go to the Snacking at the movies project website at http://www.deakin.edu.au/psychology/research/snackingstudy/ .

This project is being conducted by Tom Duggan, Paul Dundas, Amanda Lott, Kylie Storer and Jessica Trask, under the supervision of Dr Lucy Zinkiewicz of the School of Psychology at Deakin University Geelong campus. Lucy can be contacted at 03 5227 8497 or lucyz@deakin.edu.au.

Still more HP stuff (yes, I'm dull) [Jul. 22nd, 2007|05:22 pm]

Now, for something completely different: a hilarious HP:DH parody. Do not read, though, unless you want to be spoilered or just don't give a toss about reading the book. Thanks SO much for the link, kateorman!

Finished HP & the DH a couple of hours ago... [Jul. 21st, 2007|07:12 pm]

Am feeling a great sense of anticlimax, probably because I read some spoilers a couple of days ago.

Now I feel quite flat - it's been a long trip, and I'm not ready for it to end yet!

New seven world wonders announced [Jul. 8th, 2007|10:24 am]

They're not really surprising - the Great Wall of China, Petra, Brazil's Statue of Christ Redeemer, Machu Picchu in Peru, the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza in Mexico, the Colosseum in Rome and India's Taj Mahal - though only 3 were in my final list (the Great Wall, Petra, & the Colosseum). See the n7w site for photos. Critics say the list is very limited, as it is, and the publicity may lead to greater stress on and regulation of fragile sites like Chichen Itza. Hopefully it'll lead to greater protection of them, too.

They're now calling for norminations for the Natural7Wonders, the 7 wonders of nature, many of which are even more endangered...

Not much time left to do it, but vote in GUFF [Apr. 14th, 2007|11:04 pm]

Details are here. Not sure if I've met the two Swedish candidates, but the ones in the UK are both well worth voting for, though Steve Davies has already been to Oz a few times. Yes, I know that officially that shouldn't factor into fan fund voting any longer, but it makes a difference to me.
