get props
because of
social study

By Britngy McIntosh

Two professors of management at the Gatton
College of Business have been receiving much
recognition for their research in the field of social

Professors Giuseppe “Joe" Labianca and Daniel
J. Brass both have done extensive studies on social
network analysis. or. put better into a common
phrase. "it‘s just not what you know. but who you

The Academy of Management Review. a lead-
ing journal in business management. judged a re-
search paper by Brass and Labianca as the runner-
up for best paper of the year in 2006.

“This research paper is a theory piece pointing
out that a lot of what happens within a business is
based on the negative verses the positive." Labianca
said. “A lot of the success of a business is deter-
mined by who doesn‘t like whom."

In order to prove this theory. Labianca and
Brass collected a network of all the religious minis-
ters in an anonymous state. They questioned each
minister on which of the other ministers they did
and didn‘t like within the network and compared
that to the church‘s attendance.

“We found that the more dislikes a minister had
for other ministers within the network. the worse
his or her church is doing." Labianca said.

Ministers who have more conflict with other
ministers had a smaller church following. Labianca

"Avoiding conflict is the easiest path for most
people." Labianca said.

The research is significant in the science of net-
working because it emphasizes different forms of
communication and the building of relationships.

In addition to the AMR award. Labianca has
also received recognition for a project he conducted
in the Ukraine with three other scholars.

The Kooks — “Inside

music take note ~ , The
Kooks are here. On their
first album. “Inside

things simple. They forgo
fancy arrangements and all
but one song falls shorter

than the four-minute mark. Despite the simplicity. there is
plenty here to keep you interested. The songs on this album
are some of the best. most intriguing to come from across
the pond since The Beatles disbanded. The opening track
“Seaside” sets the tone for the rest ofthe album. complete
with rhythmic guitar parts and lyrics about girls and the
beach — but isn‘t that what rock is all about? Almost any
of these songs would be a likely hit single. and it‘s only a
matter oftime until at least a couple ofthem are.

Laud Kentucky for its educational aims and awards

Kentucky isn‘t exactly a bastion
of intellect ~ a quick perusal of the

national rankings prove it.

It's a disheartening open secret -
many Kentuckians understandably

loathe to analyze.

In fact. “Thank goodness for Mis~
sissippi." a state routinely ranked low
on the educational totem pole. is a fa-
miliar jibe and Hail Mary of sons for
Kentucky‘s own lackluster system.

But we're keeping our metaphysi-
cal fingers crossed for the betterment
of the state and its commitment to im-

proving education.

With initiatives like UK's own
push to reach top‘ZO status as a public
research institution and educators who
strive to reinvigorate school curricu—


Two recent awards
add more fuel to this

strides to combat its

These two notable awards are env

but for the entire state.

And there are other reasons to be

proud of Kentucky; the state can


claim an impressive plethora of tal—

Kingsolver. Gumey Norman and
Wendell Berry.

With such accolades and an ever-
increasing roster of homegrown tal-

tion stereotypes that plague the state.
To do that. it‘s imperative that we in-
