Ali Yurukoglu: How Biased News Impacts Your Vote. Every day, millions of viewers tune in to Fox News and MSNBC — 24-hour cable news stations that have staked out positions on opposing ends of the ideological spectrum.
But how much do political biases in these channels affect viewer ideology and — in turn — voting? A new study sheds light on this question, suggesting that slanted news channels have a measurable effect on election outcomes. This makes sense on a gut level. But the researchers said that the mechanism by which this happens, and how it can be measured, comes as a bit of a surprise, as does the strength of the effect. “Coming into it I was thinking, if there’s an effect, it’s small,” says Ali Yurukoglu, a Stanford Graduate School of Business economist, who conducted the study with Gregory J.
Improving the Model Yurukoglu’s research began where another study left off. “The difficulty is if you just look at the data, you see people watch Fox News and you see people vote Republican — you find a correlation,” Yurukoglu says. Napoleon's origins - History Forum ~ All Empires - Page 1. Hello.

Before leaving for Coisica, these same authorities italianised the surnames, replacing the final "AKIS" by "ACCI" ; for example : PAPADAKIS became PAPADACCI. On 14th March, three Genoese galleys anchored off the coast neor Paomia. It may well have been in the little bay " dei Monachi " (of the monks), today named Bay Forni.

Μανιάτες & Ναπολέων. «O Κορσικανός, ο έχων τον Ταΰγετον Πατρίδα» Όσο κι αν φαίνεται παράξενο τα όσα αναφέρονται στην Ελληνική καταγωγή του μεγάλου Στρατηλάτη, στην καταγωγή του Ναπολέοντος Βοναπάρτη, δεν είναι αποτέλεσμα νεοελληνικής ματαιοδοξίας.
Ο θρύλος περί της Ελληνικής καταγωγής που δεν εγεννήθη καν στην Ελλάδα ή στη Μάνη αλλά στην Κορσική! Αλλά ας αφήσουμε τα γεγονότα να μιλήσουν: Οι Μανιάτες, ξεριζωμένοι από την Παόμια ευρίσκονται για 44 χρόνια (1731 – 1775) στην πρωτεύουσα της Κορσικής, Αιάκειο. Είναι τα χρόνια που γεννιέται και ανδρώνεται ο Μέγας Ναπολέων. Ο πατέρας του, Κάρολος Βοναπάρτης, έχει πολύ στενή φιλία με την οικογένεια της Πανώριας Στεφανοπούλου, χήρας Περμόν (προμηθευτή του γαλλικού στρατού). «Στο σπίτι του Βοναπάρτη μιλούσαμε Ελληνικά με τον πατέρα του Ναπολέοντα. (…) Πρόγονος του Βοναπάρτη ανήκε στην γενιά των Στεφανοπούλων και έφερε το όνομα Καλόμερος, o οποίος μετανάστευσε από το Αιάκειον στην Τοσκάνη της Ιταλίας.
Ο Στρατηγός Διοικητής του εν Ιταλία στρατού. Maniots. The Maniots or Maniates (Greek: Μανιάτες) are the inhabitants of the Mani Peninsula in the southern Peloponnese, Greece.
They were also formerly known as Mainotes and the peninsula as Maina. Maniots are often described as descendants of the ancient Dorian population of the Peloponnese and as such related to the ancient Spartans.  The terrain is mountainous and inaccessible (until recently many Mani villages could be accessed only by sea), and the regional name "Mani" is thought to have meant originally "dry" or "barren". The name "Maniot" is a derivative meaning "of Mani". In the early modern period, Maniots had a reputation as fierce and proudly independent warriors, who practice piracy and fierce blood feuds. Their surnames uniformly end in "-eas" in what is now the Messenian part of Mani, "-akos" or "-akis" in what is now the Laconian part of Mani and the occasional "-oggonas".
