    Research Methods in Criminal Justice – Ethical Considerations

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will review the work of Dr. Peter Kraska and Dr. W. Lawrence Neuman and their excellent textbook entitled “Criminal Justice and Criminology Research Methods” (2012, 2nd ed.).  Thinking about your application of ethics in your research project is critical to your completing enough preparation to be successful. Ethical conduct ensures that the "knowledge–power dynamic" which we understand so well in public safety generates knowledge only from credible research. As a criminal justice researcher you have a professional and ethical obligation to create new knowledge that is useful, accurate, credible, and that can be generalized across a wide population. The purpose of this seminar is to ensure you understand and appreciate the ethical implications of your research as well as the potential adverse impacts that research can have on others.

    Research Methods in Criminal Justice – Theory and Philosophy

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will review the work of Dr. Peter Kraska and Dr. W. Lawrence Neuman in their excellent textbook entitled “Criminal Justice and Criminology Research Methods” (2012, 2nd ed.).  This first seminar helps answer some basic questions about knowledge, how it is constructed and what it has to do with criminal justice studies. We have questions we ask every day, departments across the country need research done, but who is to say what research needs to be done and how it is to be done to satisfy the needs of that Chief, Warden, Regional Administrator, or other agency manager who needs to make serious and accurate decisions based on your work? This seminar introduces the concepts of epistemology, positivist social science, interpretive social science, and critical social science. Then we go into the parts of a theory and variables in research before expanding to the development of a theory.  The latter half of the seminar reviews Grounded Theory, Temporal Order, Association, Types of Variables, etc. and then we finish up with Hypothesis and errors in reasoning.

    Becoming a Cosmic Citizen - Rick Nelson - Denver Paranormal Research Forum

    in Spirituality

    Intelligent Non-Physical & Non-terrestrial Life Forms

    Rick Nelson is founder and host of the Paranormal Research Forum based in Denver Colorado formed in late 2004.  A few years ago the Forum became ”The World’s Largest Monthly Gathering on Any Paranormal Matters ” regularly attracting 100-300 curious souls at the monthly meetings.

    His journey of exploration and discovery has been highly unique exposing him to many interactions with various non-conventional life forms and discoveries about them.

    Out of the culmination of more than 30 years of exploration, investigation, research and discovery a most fascinating matrix has emerged.  Rick’s desire to better understand the gap between science and spirituality is likely best approached from the above title.

    In addition to conducting paranormal investigations, being the lead investigator on Stan Romanek’s UFO/ET encounters for several years and conducting Bigfoot investigations this summer has marked his 27th annual UFO Trip to remote high activity areas.  This matrix will be shared this evening…

    Typical Actions in Probate of a Slaveholding Estate with David E. Paterson

    in History


    Public historian David E. Paterson studies people who lived in nineteenth-century Upson County, Georgia, especially those who experienced slavery and Reconstruction. A civilian employee of the US Navy by day, he spends his leisure hours researching and writing local history.  David has helped manage the Slave Research Forum at AfriGeneas.com since about 2001.  David emigrated to the U.S. in 1958 from Scotland and was granted U.S. citizenship in 1975.  He lives in Norfolk, Virginia.

    We will discuss the most fruitful probate records for slavery research in most states, for the period about 1800 to 1865.   The discussion may be less useful for the colonial period, or for the records of Louisiana or Spanish colonial Florida whose laws and processes derived from different legal traditions.  In addition, David will describe the process flow from one record to the next – the purpoe of each record – and what kinds of slavery-related information maybe found in the record. Particular attention will focus on records that are sometimes overlooked in guides or how-to books; especially annual returns and vouchers.  Researchers may find records of a deceased slaveholder separated by many years – in cases when a “life estate” came back under supervision of the court as a “residual estate.”  Finally we will show the connections and similarities between probate records and guardians’ records.

    in Self Help

    Matthew Lesko of http://lesko.com/, http://bigdatalesko.com/, MoneyToDoYourThing.com and http://lesko.com/videoebooks tells us about free research services.

    I need your help to educate others about the limitations of using Google and other internet search tools when you're looking for free help and information to improve your life.
    Google generates more problems than it solves. It generates haystacks of data and the sources you see up front are people trying to sell you something. The people who will solve your problem for free are needles buried in this GoogleStack where you will never find them.

    Your Google Story Will Get You Free 30-Day Unlimited Use Of Our Research Services at GrantsAndCrowdfunding.com

    Tell your Google horror story, like:
    1) You used Google and spend a lot of money on something you found out was free,
    2) Google lead you down the wrong rabbit hole for help but you finally got the help you needed.
    3) Google wound up costing you money.
    4) Google gave you the wrong answer.

    Help me educate others on the limits of Google.
