TL;DR: In this paper, the authors presented a segment characterization of Generation Y using the VALS typology and provided insights into the media habits of this population using a sample consisting of subjects from Generation Y that were drawn from a population of college students.
Abstract: Purpose – Although Generation Y has been extensively examined in the popular and academic literature, there have not been any studies to date that have identified the psychographic profile of this market segment using the VALS scale. The purpose of the research presented in this paper is to provide a segment characterization of Generation Y using the VALS typology and provide insights into the media habits of this population. Design/methodology/approach – The research sample consisted of subjects from Generation Y that were drawn from a population of college students. To determine the VALS types, participants completed the VALS survey in addition to responding to questions related to demographics and media habits. Originality/value – The results contribute to the literature by providing for the first time a segmented characterization of Generation Y consumers. The research provides a detailed perspective of this important market segment and provides marketers with insights on their values, attitudes, and ...

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors propose a new standard of ethical leadership that they call Transformative Leadership, which is based on six other well-regarded leadership perspectives and combines key normative and instrumental elements of each of those six perspectives.
Abstract: The ongoing cynicism about leaders and organizations calls for a new standard of ethical leadership that we have labeled “transformative leadership.” This new leadership model integrates ethically-based features of six other well-regarded leadership perspectives and combines key normative and instrumental elements of each of those six perspectives. Transformative leadership honors the governance obligations of leaders by demonstrating a commitment to the welfare of all stakeholders and by seeking to optimize long-term wealth creation. Citing the scholarly literature about leadership theory, we identify key elements of the six leadership perspectives that make up transformative leadership, suggest leaders who exemplify each perspective, describe the ethical foundations and message of each perspective, and offer ten propositions that scholars and practitioners can use to test the dimensions of this new transformative leadership model.

TL;DR: The construction and design of a static analysis framework (called SAFELI) for identifying SIA vulnerabilities at compile time is proposed, which has the future potential to discover more delicate SQL injection attacks than black-box Web security inspection tools.
Abstract: Recently SQL injection attack (SIA) has become a major threat to Web applications. Via carefully crafted user input, attackers can expose or manipulate the back-end database of a Web application. This paper proposes the construction and outlines the design of a static analysis framework (called SAFELI) for identifying SIA vulnerabilities at compile time. SAFELI statically inspects MSIL bytecode of an ASP.NET Web application, using symbolic execution. At each hotspot that submits SQL query, a hybrid constraint solver is used to find out the corresponding user input that could lead to breach of information security. Once completed, SAFELI has the future potential to discover more delicate SQL injection attacks than black-box Web security inspection tools.

TL;DR: A new adaptive fuzzy reasoning method using compensatory fuzzy operators is proposed to make a fuzzy logic system more adaptive and more effective and is proved to be a universal approximator.
Abstract: In this paper, a new adaptive fuzzy reasoning method using compensatory fuzzy operators is proposed to make a fuzzy logic system more adaptive and more effective. Such a compensatory fuzzy logic system is proved to be a universal approximator. The compensatory neural fuzzy networks built by both control-oriented fuzzy neurons and decision-oriented fuzzy neurons cannot only adaptively adjust fuzzy membership functions but also dynamically optimize the adaptive fuzzy reasoning by using a compensatory learning algorithm. The simulation results of a cart-pole balancing system and nonlinear system modeling have shown that: 1) the compensatory neurofuzzy system can effectively learn commonly used fuzzy IF-THEN rules from either well-defined initial data or ill-defined data; 2) the convergence speed of the compensatory learning algorithm is faster than that of the conventional backpropagation algorithm; and 3) the efficiency of the compensatory learning algorithm can be improved by choosing an appropriate compensatory degree.

TL;DR: This work presents a framework for analyzing interactions among Web services that communicate with asynchronous messages, and shows that a large class of composite Web services with unbounded message queues can be verified completely using a finite state model checker such as SPIN.
Abstract: We present a framework for analyzing interactions among Web services that communicate with asynchronous messages. We model the interactions among the peers participating in a composite Web service as conversations, the global sequences of messages exchanged among the peers. This naturally leads to the following model checking problem: Given an LTL property and a composite Web service, do the conversations generated by the composite Web service satisfy the property? We show that asynchronous messaging leads to state space explosion for bounded message queues and undecidability of the model checking problem for unbounded message queues. We propose a technique called synchronizability analysis to tackle this problem. If a composite Web service is synchronizable, its conversation set remains the same when asynchronous communication is replaced with synchronous communication. We give a set of sufficient conditions that guarantee synchronizability and that can be checked statically. Based on our synchronizability results, we show that a large class of composite Web services with unbounded message queues can be verified completely using a finite state model checker such as SPIN. We also show that synchronizability analysis can be used to check the reliability of top-down conversation specifications and we contrast the conversation model with the Message Sequence Charts. We integrated synchronizability analysis to a tool we developed for analyzing composite Web services.
