Inverting the Logic of Economic Migration: Happiness Among Migrants Moving from Wealthier to Poorer Countries in Europe
Migration from a poorer country to a wealthier one often results in a lower relative economic status for the migrant (even when it increases their incomes in an “absolute” sense)—and thus perhaps results also in a decrease in his/her happiness. By the same logic, migration from a wealthy country to a poorer one might bring a higher status position for the migrant and so might raise his/he...


Effects of Normal Load, Sliding Speed, and Surface Roughness on Tribological Properties of Niobium under Dry and Wet Conditions
The effects of normal load, sliding speed, and surface roughness on the friction and wear of high-purity niobium (Nb) during sliding without and with an introduction of water were systematically investigated. Increasing the normal load or sliding speed decreased the friction of the Nb under the both dry and wet conditions because the increased wear of the Nb decreased the interfacial shear stre...
Effect of Roller Geometry on Roller Bearing Load–Life Relation
Cylindrical roller bearings typically employ roller profile modification to equalize the load distribution, minimize the stress concentration at roller ends, and allow for a small amount of misalignment. The 1947 Lundberg-Palmgren analysis reported an inverse fourth-power relation between load and life for roller bearings with line contact. In 1952, Lundberg and Palmgren changed their load–li...


Relative deprivation and 'the diversity effect' in explaining neighbourhood attachment: Alternative or complementary mechanisms?
In a 2014 paper, we demonstrated that the negative relationship between ethnic diversity and neighbourhood attachment was moderated by interethnic ties differently for migrants and natives living in ethnically diverse neighbourhoods. In this article, we respond to the Comment on our paper by Oded Stark, who proposes to interpret our findings within the framework of relative deprivation theory, ...
Abrasive Wear Analysis of Plasma-Sprayed LaCeYSZ Nanocomposite Coatings Using Experimental Design and ANN
The abrasive wear characteristics of plasma-sprayed nanostructured yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) coatings on Inconel 718 substrates was evaluated using AFS 50/70-grade silica sand as abrasives. This article depicts the dependence of abrasive wear characteristics of plasma-sprayed nanocomposite LaCeYSZ coatings on abrading distance, keeping the applied load constant. The influence of four ope...


Showing engagement or not: The influence of social identification and group deadlines on individual control strategies
People often work together in groups that have to reach goals in a given time frame. Nonetheless, the impact of deadlines on group members’ self-control has not been studied so far. Here this topic is addressed by integrating the action-phase model (Heckhausen, 1999), which postulates the use of different self-control strategies during individual-level goal pursuit, with the social identi...
Between fanaticism and loyalty: Algerian prisoners within the French Mediterranean Empire
The violent military method of colonisation embraced by French governors general such as Thomas Bugeaud and the violent resistance espoused by local leaders such as ʿAbd al-Qādir have received the lion's share of attention in the existing scholarship on the first two decades of French rule in Algeria. Although some scholars have emphasised that a number of Algerians had become an integral par...

Stuck data, dead data, and disloyal data: the stops and starts in making numbers into social practices
Indicators with long social histories, such as the Consumer Price Index, often serve as nodes of calculative infrastructures. They create a field of social action, making some relations between people, institutions, and materials possible, and other relations less possible. By reflecting on two experiments in do-it-yourself sensor data, this article explores the tensions that occur when indicat...
A (home)land with a sea: the leisure and tourism in the Western Balkans of Kosovan migrants and their children living in London
This paper focuses on the trips to the homeland and the embedded tourist practices of Kosovan migrants in the Western Balkans. Drawing from the diasporic tourism literature, it emphasises the role of (material) space and place in these movements and tourist practices. Findings show that return trips to Kosovo involved for the participants leisure mobilities in the context of Albania and other A...

Connecting Spirits: The commemorative patterns of an Australian school group in Northern France
Australian school tours on the Western Front are a fast-growing phenomenon. One school tour—called Connecting Spirits—is deserving of particular attention both because it sheds light on contemporary patterns of commemoration and because its organisers and participants created several records of its commemorative activities. This article analyses the purpose of the tour and its broader relev...

The rhetoric of the new: The Field and the foundations of an institutional avant-garde in Australia
The Field, in 1968, was the first exhibition held at the new National Gallery of Victoria. The exhibition made a bold modernist statement: seventy-four abstract paintings and sculptures by forty young Australian contemporary artists. The Field was a controversial undertaking because it was clearly derived from contemporary New York avant-garde styles. This paper considers The Field's impact and...
Concerted singing: leisure fulfilment in a university faculty chorus
Concerted singing is a common amateur activity in many parts of the world. Such singing is at minimum two-part vocal harmony with or without accompaniment, which may, however, be carried out in groups of 150 voices or larger. It ranges from informal gatherings of 2 to 4 people (male, female and both) who come together to sing their favourite songs or hymns with or without accompaniment to large...
Emergencia. Concepto y método
En el contexto del paradigma de la complejidad se trata la noción de emergencia. A la fecha, ha adquirido relevancia siendo cooptada por diversas escuelas. No se trata de un término unívoco. Sin embargo, independiente de la perspectiva siempre refiere a un sistema y a la relación micro/macro. Históricamente la emergencia ha sido una caja negra de inputs y outputs. El mecanismo ha sido ines...
