Subject: Re: Research on education vs legislation? 
 
Hi Sarah 
 
This isn't about cost-effectiveness exactly, but more about effectiveness in general, which I guess are related. 
 
The Nuffield Council on Bioethics looked at this in relation to alcohol consumption in 2007. It drew on a major WHO-sponsored study called 'Alcohol: No ordinary commodity - Research and public policy' which compared public health measures used in different countries across Europe (I think). 
 
The study emphasised the effectiveness of increasing taxes, restricting hours and days of sale and the density of outlets that sell alcohol, and possibly of banning advertising, whereas it found little evidence in support of the effectiveness of education about alcohol in schools, and evidence for a lack of effectiveness concerning public service messages and warning labels. 
 
This was the basis for the Council recommending the Government use more coercive measures to tackle excessive alcohol consumption than they were currently using at the time. See p 113 of our report: www.nuffieldbioethics.org/sites/default/files/Public%20health%20-%20ethical%20issues.pdf 
 
The full WHO report reference is Babor T, Caetano R, Casswell S et al. (2003) Alcohol: No ordinary commodity - Research and public policy (Oxford: Oxford University Press). 
 
Hope this helps. 
 
Thanks 
Catherine

Subject: [PSCI-COM] Research on education vs legislation? 
 
Hi Psci-commers 
 
I am looking for any research that has been done on the cost-effectiveness 
of education vs. legislation on changing behaviour. 
 
It is to support some work I am doing some work for the UN/FAO on climate 
change and I would have thought that surely educating people (especially 
young people) would be more cost effective than bringing in laws and 
creating new infrastructure to force people to comply...but maybe not? Does 
anyone know of any research in this area? I guess it needn't necessarily be 
on climate change - maybe similar research has been done on other public 
health issues like smoking or healthy eating? 
 
Any suggestions from the collective Psci-com brain would be welcome 
Thanks 
Sarah

Subject: Science of Optimism - Thursday 26 Jan 
 
 
 
List members may be interested in the following Science London event next Thursday 26 January: 
 
The Science of Optimism 
 
We like to think of ourselves as rational creatures. We watch our backs, weigh the odds, pack an umbrella. But science suggests that most of us are more optimistic than realistic. In fact, optimism may be crucial to our existence. 
 
Join Dr. Tali Sharot, a neuroscientist working at University College London, as she will take us on a tour of the irrationally positive brain. Tali will explain how the brain generates hope and what happens when it fails; how the brains of optimists and pessimists differ; why we are terrible at predicting what will make us happy; how emotions strengthen our ability to recollect; how anticipation and dread affect us; and how our optimistic illusions affect our financial, professional, and emotional decisions. 
 
Date: Thursday 26th January 2012 
Time: 7pm, for a 7.30pm start 
Place: Upstairs at The Lamb, 92 Lambs Conduit Street, WC1N 3LZ 
Cost: Free

Subject: UK Conference of Science Journalists 2012 - support opportunities 
 
The first ever UK Conference of Science Journalists was held in 2010 
(UKCSJ10) and was a complete sell out.   The success of the event led the 
Association of British Science Writers (ABSW) to schedule this as a 
biennial event to tie in with the biennial programme of the World 
Conference of Science Journalists.   The second UKCSJ (UKCSJ12) will be 
held in London on Monday 25th June at the Royal Society who have generously 
provided the venue for the event. 
 
The UKCSJ12 has three key aims: 
 
   - To discuss and debate contemporary issues in science journalism 
   - To encourage and provide skills for newcomers 
   - To promote professional development 
 
This year the capacity of the Conference has been increased to 300 to meet 
demand, so for those supporting the Conference you will of course be able 
to make direct contact with a far larger group of the UK's Science 
Journalists/Writers and Broadcasters both freelance and staff alongside 
joining the debate on the future of science journalism in the UK. The 
Conference will also provide a great opportunity to meet the next 
generation of science journalists as there will be many new and early 
career journalists attending. 
 
For details of this year's event and for multimedia coverage of the UKCSJ10 
please visit: 
 
http://www.absw.org.uk/news-events/events/uk-conference-of-science-journalists 
 
 
You will also find the UKCSJ on Facebook and Google Plus.   Tweets will be 
via @absw #ukcsj12. 
 
For further details of the support opportunities please contact me direct 
and I can forward the UKCSJ12 support brochure. 
 
Many thanks - Sallie

Dear reader, 
 
 
 
Here's the latest sighting from The Observatory 
<http://www.cjr.org/the_observatory/> , the science desk of the Columbia 
Journalism Review: 
 
 
 
Critical Juncture: The Huffington Post's announcement last week that it had 
launched a new section intended to be a "one-stop shop for the latest 
scientific news and opinion" incited a flurry of circumspect commentary 
about whether or not the site was turning over "a new leaf" in science 
coverage. Over the years, HuffPo has drawn widespread criticism for 
publishing misleading columns about health and medicine in particular. Its 
new science editor, David Freeman, told CJR's Curtis Brainard that he 
doesn't see a "before-and-after" situation in the new vertical. 
<http://www.cjr.org/the_observatory/critical_juncture_for_huffpo_s.php> 
Brainard hopes, however, that the section does make a break with the past. 
 
 
 
We hope you enjoy this. 
 
And if staying informed is part of your agenda for the new year, now would 
be a great time to consider

Subject: UKCSJ12 Support Opportunities - issues with formatting 
 
I gather that my previous mail has appeared with some odd formatting for 
some recipients, if so the three main aims of the UKCSJ12 that seem to have 
gone haywire are: 
 
To discuss and debate contemporary issues in science journalism 
 
To encourage and provide skills for newcomers 
 
To promote professional development 
 
As said if you would like to receive our support brochure do get in touch. 
  All the best - Sallie

Each event brings together world-class researchers and top Team GB stars to showcase amazing athletic demonstrations, discuss elite performance and gives the public a chance to share views on the research behind the UK’s sporting achievements. Comments from people attending the events will inform new research about the public’s attitudes to research and technology use in sport to enhance performance which will be presented at the International Convention on Science, Education and Medicine in Sport (ICSEMIS) in July. 
 
The first event in the series Cutting Edge 2012: Behind Basketball is being held on Wednesday 25 January from 19:00 – 20:30pm at The Royal Institution, 21 Albemarle Street, London. It will be hosted by  top sports scientist Professor Steve Haake and feature Colin Price, silver medal winning Wheelchair Basketball captain for Paralympics GB, sports equipment specialist Professor Mike Caine and Dr Maria Kavussanu an expert in morality in team sport. It is free to attend and registration for tickets is available via the Royal Institution:  www.rigb.org/cuttingedge2012

The Huffington Post has drawn widespread criticism for publishing 
"misleading columns" on just about every subject under the sun. But, to be 
fair, it isn't a journalistic enterprise, but rather a vanity publishing 
outlet which focuses on opinion pieces, not news reports. 
 
 
 
Professional science writers and journalists shouldn't touch "HuffPo" with a 
bargepole. Publishing there will not enhance your credibility as a writer, 
and neither will it do your bank balance any good. The wretched Huffington 
has made a fortune from her pseudo-blog, and its stable of writers receive 
not a penny for their efforts. A pox on it!
