and B. Dervin. A comparison of structural and situational predictors of information use. This paper answers the question, “Why do organizations process information?” Uncertainty and equivocality are defined as two forces that influence information processing in organizations.

Organization structure and internal systems determine both the amount and richness of information provided to Cited by: Adult children provide care to their aging parents from a variety of motives, including affection, duty (i.e., filial responsibility), pressure from other family members, feelings of life course reciprocity (i.e., “repayment” for care provided by parents earlier in life), and situational constraints (i.e., no other choice).

The sense-making theory of Brenda Dervin, based on constructivist assumptions on human information seeking and use, is reviewed. The study focuses on the epistemic and practical interests of the theory, discussing them in relation to the interests of the traditional intermediary-centered by: Understanding the empirical manifestations of this duality demands a continuous deconstruction of the concept of structure, building on social theory that would enrich the field.

Moreover, a better grasp on norms and values representing structural constraints and enabling structures calls for more use of discursive approaches in labor geography.

Typically, occupational career, resources, structural constraints, and situational exigencies differ by gender, as do retirement and postretirement expectations and experiences. Gender similarities and differences in the retirement transition are only beginning to be considered (Holden, ; Martin Matthews & Brown, ).Cited by: Learning words that refer to events is a difficult task.

Events are dynamic and transient, and languages differ in the way they use predicate terms (e.g. Maratsos, ).For example, to learn a new verb, children need to deduce which elements of a changing scene should be considered together as a part of a new verb’s meaning, or solve a ‘packaging problem’ (e.g.

It is necessary to understand how a community perceives febrile illness, the importance. The VerbNet class information can serve as a linguistic feature that provides a classifier with information to identify tweets that contain situational awareness information.

Structural equation modeling was used to examine significant paths between variables, thus creating a proposed new theoretical model.Research through Design is often presented as a different way of doing research – i.e., different from the experimental approach common in CHI areas such as usability testing, or the strict methods of statistical hypothesis testing in the ‘standard scientific experimental approach’.
