Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this study was to examine the organizational context that may support learning and change readiness climates that previous research has found to be conducive to implementing evidence-based interventions.

Design/methodology/approach

An exploratory, mixed method evaluation that included 15 rheumatology clinics throughout the United States was performed. Quantitative data were collected using a web-based survey completed by 135 clinic members. Qualitative data were collected via semi-structured interviews with 88 clinic members.

Findings

In general, clinics reported strong, positive learning and change readiness climates. More complex organizations (e.g. multispecialty, academic medical centers) with rational/hierarchical cultures and members with longer tenure were associated with less supportive learning and change readiness climates. The authors’ findings highlight opportunities for organizational leaders and evidence-based intervention sponsors to focus their attention and allocate resources to settings that may be most susceptible to implementation challenges.

Originality/value

First, the authors address a deficit in previous research by describing both the level and strength of the learning and change readiness climates for implementing an evidence-based shared decision-making aid (SDMA) and examine how these vary as a function of the organizational context. Second, the study examines a broader set of factors to assess the organizational context (e.g. organizational culture, organizational structure, ownership) than previous research, which may be especially salient for shaping the climate in smaller specialty clinics like those we study. Third, the authors utilize a mixed methods analysis to provide greater insights into questions of how and why organizational factors such as size and structure may influence the learning and change readiness climate.

Abstract

Money laundering, casinos and the Internet may become unavoidably intertwined in the next decade. Money laundering is the process by which criminals transform the money that they receive from criminal activities into funds that appear to have been generated by lawful means and cannot be traced by law enforcement to their illicit sources. While the magnitude of money laundering is unknown, law enforcement authorities estimate that it consists of an annual $100bn‐$300bn in US currency, and a rough estimate of an ‘annual worldwide … range of $300 to $500 billion’.

Abstract

A television comic announces a satiric Golden Fleece Award for the faux pas of some government official. The San Diego Chicken hams it up in the stands of the baseball park. A Swiss mime troupe advertises the services of a communications corporation. All these may be more familiar to young people today than is a circus clown. These and other entertainers are all in the business of laughter and provide commentaries on current society.

Abstract

Contrasts the approaches to offshore Internet gambling taken by the UK and the USA: the Budd Committee recommended that it be permissible under license in the former, but it is arguably illegal for an offshore operator to accept wagers from the USA ‐ and most gaming sites are well outside the USA. Discusses a number of US legal cases, many of them involving the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO): State of New Jersey v RoyalclubCasino.com et al, In Re Gaming Lottery Securities Litigation, Providian Bank v Haines, Jubilirer v MasterCard International, Reves v Ernst and Young, Marino v American Express, Buchal v 3748472 Canada Inc, US v Cohen, In Re MasterCard, US v Truesdale, US v Dennis and Joseph Atiyeh, United States v $734,578.82 in United States Currency. Suggests that the Statute of Anne might be used to minimise Internet gambling by Americans, but concludes that it is doubtful whether Internet gambling can be prohibited and that a licensing system may be practicable.

Abstract

Emerging initiatives in British Columbia and elsewhere clearly suggest that by working with tourism stakeholders, the wine industry can not only contribute to the development of rural tourism, but it can also gain valuable direct marketing and value added sales advantages. For these benefits to be fully realized, more must be known about the character of travel markets interested in wine tourism. To provide insights into BC's domestic wine tourist markets, this research involves two overriding phases of investigation. Initially, it conducts an overview analysis of BC's domestic wine tourists. The second phase of the study involves describing a small but valuable and growing niche market of culturally oriented wine tourists. It then suggests several product development strategies suited to attracting and retaining such wine tourists. The strategies relate to incorporating a range of wine and non‐wine related activities into the tourism experience, creating strong connections between local wines and regional cuisine, building cultural and heritage dimensions into wine tourism product packages, incorporating and promoting environmentally friendly resource management practices; and, protecting wine tourism landscapes. While the empirical part of this investigation is focused on BC wine tourists, the findings provide insights into strategies suited to other wine producing regions in Canada and elsewhere.

Abstract

Purpose

The paper aims to explain the new Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules governing communications with the public approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on March 29, 2012.

Design/methodology/approach

The following are explained: categories of communication, pre‐use approval and record‐keeping requirements, filing requirements, content standards, use of investment company rankings in retail communications, requirements for the use of bond mutual fund volatility ratings, requirements for the use of investment analysis tools, communication with the public regarding securities futures, communication with the public about collateralized mortgage obligations, and the implementation date for the rules.

Findings

While the new FINRA rules are based on the current provisions of the NASD Rules and Interpretive Materials they replace, there are some notable changes with regard to the communication categories, public appearances, and the approval, review and recordkeeping requirements.

Originality/value

Practical guidance is provided from experienced securities lawyers.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to examine SEC rule amendments that permit a mutual fund to use a three‐ or four‐page “summary prospectus” to satisfy statutory prospectus delivery obligations and amendments to a fund's statutory prospectus requirements that require key information in a standardized order at the front of the document.

Design/methodology/approach

The approach is to explain the SEC's regulatory changes to the basic mutual fund disclosure documents designed to help investors choose among the more than 8,000 mutual funds.

Findings

The investing public's use of the internet for fund research and fund transactions has made it possible for the SEC to take a “layered” approach to disclosure documents, providing an investor with a short‐form document and making available more detailed information on fund web sites. The SEC will likely follow suit with other documents and updated compliance requirements.

Originality/value

The paper will assist fund legal counsel and compliance professionals: to comply with the new statutory prospectus requirements; and to determine whether the summary prospectus is an appropriate disclosure document for a particular fund.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the implications of an SEC Risk Alert and two FINRA regulatory notices concerning the use of social media by registered investment advisers.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper analyzes the SEC Office of Compliance and Inspections National Examination Risk Alert dated January 4, 2012, including general observations and factors for investment advisors to consider such as usage guidelines, content standards, policies for representatives and solicitors, monitoring procedures and third‐party content and testimonials. It discusses FINRA's detailed, bright‐line guidance in Regulatory Notice 11‐39 (August 2011) and Regulatory Notice 10‐06 (January 2010).

Findings

The paper recommends ways for investment advisers to address the use of social media.

Practical implications

Until more concrete guidance and market practice has emerged, firms may benefit from taking a conservative approach by limiting the use of social media and the ability of non‐firm personnel to “like” or post content to the firm's social media website, and by retaining all records of social media interactions in case of examinations.

Originality/value

The paper presents analysis and practical guidance from experienced financial services lawyers.

Abstract

A question of size THE Committee set up by the Minister of Education in 1957 to “consider the structure of the public library service in England and Wales, and to advise what changes, if any, should be made n the administrative arrangements, regard being had to the relation of public libraries to other libraries,” was the first such since the Kenyon Committee which reported in 1927. One of the most controversial aspects of the Roberts Committee's deliberations was the consideration of the minimum size (in terms of population) of an independent library system.
