    En studie om arbetsmotivation bland personal inom dagligvaruhandeln2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien var att undersöka vilka faktorer som personalen inom dagligvaruhandeln upplevde som viktiga för arbetsmotivationen utifrån Herzberg`s tvåfaktorteori. Studien undersökte även om det fanns samband mellan inre faktorer, yttre faktorer och personlighetsegenskaper. En enkätstudie genomfördes där 74 medarbetare inom dagligvaruhandeln i Mellansverige deltog. Ett t-test visade att skillnaden mellan inre och yttre faktorer inte var signifikant. En korrelationsanalys visade på samband mellan inre faktorer, yttre faktorer och personlighetsegenskaper. Regressionsanalyser visade på att 18 procent av variationen i inre och yttre faktorer kan förklaras av personlighetsegenskaper. Den visade även på signifikanta samband mellan inre faktorer och personlighetsegenskaperna öppenhet och målmedvetenhet. Ytterligare ett signifikant samband fanns mellan yttre faktorer och personlighetsegenskaperna vänlighet och känslomässig instabilitet. Författarna drar slutsatsen att studiens resultat kan fungera som ett underlag för dagligvaruhandeln i deras beslut gällande motivationshöjande investeringar.

    Föreställningar om brottsoffer: En kvalitativ intervjustudie2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Synen på brottsoffer förändrades under 1980-talet och har med tiden fått en annan roll då fokus förut mestadels låg på brottslingen (Andersson & Nilsson, 2009; Tham, 2001). Begreppet brottsoffer och vilka som ses som brottsoffer skiljer sig utifrån attribut hos offret som bedömaren värderar i sin bedömning om vem som anses vara ett offer eller inte (Christie, 1986). Utifrån Christies teori om det idealiska offret var syftet i följande studie att beskriva och redogöra för studenters föreställningar om brottsoffer. För genomförande användes en kvalitativ metod med tio stycken semistrukturerade telefonintervjuer där deltagarna var mellan 20-36 år, nio kvinnor och en man. Samtliga deltagare var studenter vid högskola eller universitet i Sverige och studerade någon av inriktningarna: juridik-, ekonomi-, socionom- eller polisutbildning. För dataanalys gjordes en manifest, deduktiv innehållsanalys. Christies teori om det idealiska offret låg till grund för intervjuguiden och för skapande av kategorier i innehållsanalysen. Resultatet visade att deltagarna till viss del hade liknande föreställningar om det idealiska offret och de som beskrivs av Christie. Det visade att män inte ses som offer lika ofta som kvinnor och att vissa andra attribut var avgörande för hur man anser ett offer vara legitimt eller inte, vilket kan bidra till att vissa brottsoffer blir fortsatt osynliga.

    Moving or doing? Knowledge flow, problem solving, and change in industrial networks2006In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, Vol. 60, no 1, p. 32-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For decades, scholars have put forward the idea that change in industrial networks depends on the relationships and networks themselves. However, models are still lacking that conceptualize the heterogeneity of relationships and networks and that show how this heterogeneity actually affects change. This paper puts for-ward a model suggesting that network structure-in terms of an open or closed system-and relational embeddedness together affect the ways knowledge is gained, given knowledge flow and problem solving as two sources of knowledge. Moreover, the paper proposes that this effect influences the tacitness and novelty of the knowledge gained. Additionally, network structure and gained knowledge are postulated to have an impact on two changes, the establishment of relationships and the development of technology, which take place in industrial networks. The paper advances six propositions and concludes with implications for research and practice.

    Dressed for success: designing and managing regional strategic networks2011Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Inter-organizational network initiatives such as regional strategic networks (RSNs) are often used by firms and public agencies to support regional development and competitiveness. RSNs are designed networks managed by a hub and financed by public or private means. RSN management is complex as members are autonomous and initially often loosely connected. The effects of RSNs on regional development are disputed as engineered relationship development may interfere with ongoing business relationships.  Despite this, vast public funds are being invested in collaborative initiatives. Identifying factors affecting RSN performance will provide a better basis for evaluating and managing such initiatives.

    Based on concepts such as actors, resources, and activities findings are reported from longitudinal case-studies built on interviews with 68 members and hubs in four RSNs. Data were also collected through participant observation, conversations, archival data and emails. Findings indicate that factors such as evaluation criteria, member composition, relationships, location, goals, the hub, physical and human resources, knowledge sharing and development, resources, policies and norms, social activities, and communication exert an impact on entrepreneurship and cooperation.

    The first paper focuses on factors such as actor composition, actor goals, number of actors, and activities facilitating relationship development and commitment. The second paper identifies a framework of seven tasks to be performed by the hub. The effects on development of preferences and atmosphere are dealt with in the third paper. Effects of cooperation between public/private sector and universities are addressed in the fourth paper, and entrepreneurial processes in network contexts are analyzed in the fifth one.

    The important management role of the hub is emphasized as is carefully considered member composition. Relationships and commitment are found to be crucial. These factors are not covered by national and regional performance criteria. They merit a place of their own.

    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to model the impact of structural factors and activities on commitment in a regional strategic network(RSN) context. Design/methodology/approach: A longitudinal case study examines two regional strategic networks acting in different business areas in mid Sweden. Findings: Competition-neutral, social, and personal goals were found to be powerful drivers promoting shared values andcommitment among competitors, whereas business-related goals worked well for complementary firms, providing a more stable basis for networkcommitment. In the RSN with a large number of members, sensitivity to absence was low, but it took longer for members to get to know one another, slowing commitment development. The RSN including members with complementary resources proved a more favorable setting than did the RSN including competitors, and frequent activities that favored social relationship development increased commitment. Research limitations/implications: This study identifies important factors influencing the development of commitment in network contexts, but is limited to two cases. The topic merits further research: other factors need consideration, and the factors discussed here should be evaluated in other contexts. Practical implications: The impact on network commitment of the factors discussed here needs to be considered by RSN initiators and hubs. Originality/value: Few studies treat commitment in RSN contexts. This paper addresses this deficit by identifying structural factors and activities that influence commitmentdevelopment. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

    Accessibility in a world of islands and islets: Knowledge of the Visitors and Second Home Owners in the Blekinge Archipelago, Sweden2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the Swedish coastal areas the geography matters for tourism. Islands offer something special in comparison to massive land because one has to travel by boat or airplane to reach the destination. The detachment from the mainland gives an important physical and psychological aspect to the visit. However, accessibility is a crucial question in the archipelagos. Since the landscape consists of islands, it is necessary to either have access to a private boat or to public transportation. Physical accessibility refers to the ability of people to reach destinations, where the landscape together with infrastructure creates possibilities but also difficulties.

     

    The Swedish coastal areas and archipelagos attract many visitors, which create an interest in developing tourism and outdoor recreation. At the same time, these areas consist of valuable nature, culture and considerable bird and animal life. The Blekinge archipelago, Sweden, is a Candidate for becoming a biosphere reserve in the MAB-programme. Biosphere reserves are model areas with the purpose to conserve nature, biodiversity and culture. At the same time, the social and economic development through local support should be promoted. In a biosphere reserve, zoning is an important part but the inhomogeneous landscape of an archipelago makes zoning complicated. The sometimes unclear borders because of the geography and nature, the variation of accessibility, the possibility of different activities, the blurred boundaries of rural and urban living, and the mental perceptions of what an archipelago is, makes it complicated to plan and balance tourism and outdoor recreation with conservation.

     

    To understand if and how tourism and outdoor recreation are affected by zoning of a biosphere reserve, knowledge of the visitors and second homeowners is important. In relation to development of tourism and outdoor recreation, the challenge of applying zoning to a biosphere reserve in such a landscape an archipelago represents will be discussed in this study. Also, the purpose of this study is to analyse the visitors and second home owners’ views of accessibility in an archipelago. In the autumn of 2007, a questionnaire survey directed to visitors and second home owners in the Blekinge archipelago was conducted.

    The importance of visitors : attitudes and activities: A study of Luleå archipelago2004Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Turismen i kustlandskap växer fortare än någon annan turismbransch i världen. Den svenska fysiska planeringen har fokuserat på att bevara natur och kultur från att bli exploaterade eftersom kust och skärgård består av känsliga natur- och kulturområden. Turism ska inte skada miljön, men det ska även vara klart att en förstörd natur drabbar besöksnäringen. Turismen är beroende av landskapet för att kunna förbättras och bestå. Planering är en viktig länk mellan turismutveckling och fysisk miljö. Planering som inbegriper geografisk zonering av en turistdestination, leder till att olika sorters landanvändning delas upp. En effektiv planering av ett kustområde kräver kunskap om besökarna och deras attityder eftersom det kan finnas skillnader mellan vad besökarna önskar och den faktiska planeringsstrategin. Utifrån kunskap om besökarna och deras upplevelser samt geografiska spridning i kustområdet, kan olika planeringsmetoder vara ytterligare ett hjälpmedel i turismutveckling för att kommunernas planering ska bli verkningsfull samt för att minska konflikter mellan olika användargrupper. Syftet med rapporten är att kartlägga besökarnas aktiviteter och upplevelser i Luleå skärgård, att fastställa var i området de befann sig under besöket och analysera hur sådan information kan vara användbar i kommunens planering för hållbar turismutveckling. Dessutom diskuteras olika planeringsmetoder (som zonering) i samband med bevarande, turismutveckling och mark- och vattenanvändning i kustlandskap. Avslutningsvis har enkätundersökningen tagit reda på besökarnas åsikter om zonering och restriktioner samt undersökt deras allmänna åsikter om svenska kustlandskap. I samband med detta analyseras även besökarnas uppfattningar om framtida utvecklingar av turism och om områdets mark- och vattenanvändning, som exempelvis vindkraft. Rapporten är på engelska och publicering av undersökningen i Luleå skärgård kommer att ske i ETOUR�s publikationsserie.

    Tourism in the Archipelago of Luleå in Northern Sweden2003Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    As traditional land use such as agriculture and fishing, has diminished in coastal areas, tourism is considered as a lucrative industry. This paper is an introduction of the research project Planning strategies and tourism development in a coastal area. A study of the archipelago of Luleå. The project’s aim is to study the planning of the area for a sustainable tourism development. Except for a description of the PhD project, this paper will account for a questionnaire that will be conducted in the autumn of 2003. The questionnaire will be addressed to people visiting the archipelago of Luleå in the summer of 2003, during the period May-September. Since planning strategies are connected with tourists’ activities and their desire for experiences, the questionnaire’s main purpose is to investigate the tourists’ characteristics, activities, motives for visiting, valuations and their connection to the area. The future results of the questionnaire will be put in relation to the archipelago’s tourism development and planning strategies for sustainable tourism.

    Visitor Activities and Attitudes in Coastal Areas: A case study of the Luleå archipelago, Sweden2005Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Out from a questionnaire survey to visitors who stayed in the Luleå archipelago, Sweden during the summer 2003, the purpose of this paper is to examine the visitors� activities, attitudes and experiences together with their geographical dispersion in this coastal area. Furthermore, the paper investigates if the visitors have recognised any changes in the Luleå archipelago and if these are viewed negatively or positively. The survey in the Luleå archipelago will also analyse different aspects of possible conflicts between tourism and other land use in the area. Finally, the visitors� attitudes to Swedish coastal areas in general will be studied according to the purism scale which segments the visitors after their behaviour and attitudes. It is the first time the method of the purism scale (where the questions have been especially adjusted to coastal areas) will be included in a study of Swedish coastal areas.By gathering information about visitors, it becomes less problematic to combine sensitive nature and culture with a sustainable tourism development. E.g. islands that are visited frequently and which have sensitive vegetation could undergo great wear on the natural surroundings if the attendance rate gets too high (Luleå municipality, 2000). Therefore information about visitors is important and should be applied in land-use planning. The municipalities need information such as statistics of the visitors´ attitudes and their geographical dispersion to make progress in their planning and to diminish conflicts between different user groups. Which group of visitors does the municipality want to attract by its tourism development? An effective planning of a coastal area requires good and reliable knowledge about the visitors and their attitudes since there could be differences between what the visitors demand and the actual planning strategy.

    Zoning and opportunity Spectrum Planning in a Discontinuous Environment: Planning for Tourism and Outdoor Recreation in the Luleå Archipelago, Sweden2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Zoning is generally used as a planning instrument to handle land use conflicts. In recreation planning in Sweden, zoning systems such as the recreation opportunity spectrum model has been applied in mountain areas. An underlying assumption of the ROS-system is a gradient from the urban to wilderness allowing the planner to provide a spectrum of recreation opportunities. In contrast, the Swedish coastal areas consist of a discontinuous environment which challenges a zoning. Archipelagos are essentially discontinuous with respect to many of the important spatial variables. Zoning in the archipelagos in Sweden has so far followed a zoning logic from physical geography; the assumption being that the gradient from inner, wooded zones to outer treeless would also be a gradient from the more urban or human influenced cultural landscape to a more pristine, �marine wilderness� in the outer. In 2003, a questionnaire survey to visitors was conducted in the Luleå archipelago, Sweden. Based on the results, the study examines the spatialization of the visitor characteristics, the activity patterns etc in relation to the ongoing planning of the area. This paper explores the planning challenges in adapting zoning to cope with recreation and tourism development as well as with the other land and resources uses that municipal comprehensive planning is charged with. Thereby possible conflicts are identified, and the potential of zoning is explored.

    Silence – an article of short supply in outdoor recreation?Handling noise conflicts in Swedish planning2008In: Management for protection and sustainable development. The Fourth International Conference on Monitoring and Management of Visitors Flows in Recreational and Protected Areas.: Montecatini Terme, Italy 14-19 October 2008 Proceedings, 2008, p. 399-403Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Outdoor recreation areas are exposed to several causes of conflict. Many interests, along with different types of recreation activities, are competing in the same area. In these areas, conflicts are handled by spatial planning and by the separation in space of different functions. One source of conflict is noise. The lack of noise-free areas in the Swedish coastal areas has become an amenity problem. Does this make noise an important problem to consider in planning?

     

    An assumption is that the sound environment is relevant for the visitors’ experience; spending time in nature is associated with peace and quiet, where one should not be disturbed. In this study, it will be investigated how silence and noise actually are considered in the Swedish municipal planning. “Silence” is one of the amenity categories reported in the Swedish tourism data base. Is there a discrepancy between the existing municipal planning and the visitors’ opinions, attitudes and experiences?

     

    Furthermore, there will be an analysis of how silence and noise could be handled in spatial planning. One possible method is zoning. By excluding certain outdoor recreation activities from some areas, zoning may handle, or at least reduce, the problem of conflicts. The biosphere reserve concept (where zoning is an important part) will for that reason be discussed as a potential tool. A case study of the Blekinge archipelago, Sweden is the foundation of the study, which data consist of planning documents and questionnaire surveys considering outdoor recreation and nature tourism.

    Doktoranden Rosemarie Ankre analyserar i denna studie zonering av biosfärområden i kustlandskap utifrån undersökningar i Blekinge skärgård.Området består av värdefulla natur- och kulturmiljöer och har tills relativt nyligen varit stängd för allmänheten pga. militära skäl. Nu är skärgården intressant för framtida turismutveckling samtidigt som ett bevarande av området är nödvändigt.

     

    I denna studie analyseras biosfärområdeskonceptet och dess zonering med en jämförelse av planeringsverktyget Recreation Opportunity Spectrum (ROS). Zoneringen av svenska biosfärområden upplevs som icke-funktionell och behöver vidareutvecklas, där bland annat kunskap om besökare bör vara en del enligt Ankre. Under sommaren 2007 genomfördes en enkätstudie riktad till besökare och fritidshusägare i skärgården. Resultaten åskådliggör besökarnas geografiska spridning, aktiviteter, attityder inför framtida utveckling av området, samt åsikter om konflikter. Resultaten visade att upplevda konflikter exempelvis gällde avloppsfrågor, fritidshus och buller. Även representanter för kommunerna Karlskrona, Karlshamn och Ronneby samt Blekinge länsstyrelse har intervjuats för att få en sammanfattning av deras attityder och förhoppningar inför ett eventuellt biosfärområde.

    FJÄLLETS KÄNSLOMÄSSIGA OCH SYMBOLISKA BETYDELSE FÖR DET SAMISKA FOLKET2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Kulturer bestäms och formas av de symboler de använder och vördar och en människas identitet formas delvis av att hon initieras i en kulturs specifika symbolsystem. Symbolerna vänder sig till både våra intellekt, känslor samt våra andliga liv. Genom att använda Pietikainens modifiering av Jungs teori kring arketyper till att förstås som symboliska former så kan ett beskrivande värde uppnås gällande att närma sig människans mentala processer. Uppsatsens syfte är att visa exempel som illustrerar och kan öka förståelsen för vilken symbolisk och känslomässig betydelse fjället har för det samiska folket, i det här fallet representerat av fem personer med samiskt ursprung.   Utifrån ett hermeneutiskt perspektiv har intervjuer gjorts och 17 teman utkristalliserats varav fyra visat sig vara framträdande. Fjällets känslomässiga och symboliska betydelse verkar främst vara kulturellt betingat och fungerar som ett gemensamt minne i den samiska kulturen, utvecklat över generationer. Ett minne som tillskriver fjället starka personifierade egenskaper.

    Perpetrator programmes for partner violence: A rejoinder to Respect2012In: Legal and Criminological Psychology, ISSN 1355-3259, E-ISSN 2044-8333, Vol. 17, no 2, p. 225-232Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose. To reply to the comments made by Debbonaire and Todd (2012) in relation to our critique of Respect's Position Statement. Method. We examined their reply in relation to our original article and to the wider research literature. Results. We show that Debbonaire and Todd's reply is largely a series of assertions, for which little or no supporting evidence is offered. Their argument is first that we are misplaced in criticizing their Position Statement, and second that the main points of the statement are defendable. We indicate why our criticisms of the statement still stand. Conclusions. We argue that Respect have not countered our overall criticism of their position that intimate partner violence (IPV) can only be addressed as a gendered issue, that is as a consequence of patriarchal values enacted at the individual level. Instead we advocate a gender-inclusive approach applying a knowledge base derived from robust empirical research on IPV and more widely from research on human aggression.

    Coach Succession and Team Performance: The Impact of Ability and Timing -- Swedish Ice Hockey Data2009In: Journal of Quantitative Analysis in Sports, ISSN 1559-0410, Vol. 5, no 1, p. Article 2-Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to identify a function for the team performance for professional ice hockey teams in Sweden. In order to understand how team performance relates to key variables such as coaching ability and coaching experience and succession, the OLS (Ordinary Least Squares) and the more robust quantile regression techniques are used to estimate team performance for the ice hockey teams. Quarterly data for the period 1975-2006 is used for this purpose. The results have shown that coaching ability has a rather significant positive effect on team performance, and that managerial succession during the season is found to have a rather significant negative effect on team performance. The results also indicate a strong correlation between coaching ability and team performance. Moreover, the quantile regression approach provided a better understanding regarding the dynamics of the factors that affect performance and provided more interesting results than the OLS normally does.

    Technology-neutral green procurement in practice: An example from Swedish waste management2012In: Waste Management & Research, ISSN 0734-242X, E-ISSN 1096-3669, Vol. 30, no 5, p. 519-523Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Green public procurement has been criticized for its excessive reliance on detailed technology specifications, which can distort incentives in the short term and discourage innovation in the longer term. Economists therefore tend to prefer technology-neutral procurement, which rewards outcomes rather than technologies. However, technology-neutral procurement can also be problematic in practice. The present study investigated green public procurement of waste management, a rapidly growing field. In one of the most sophisticated models for technology-neutral procurement applied in Sweden in recent years, different environmental impacts were assigned weights, but no weight was given to the particular technology employed. Even here, however, potential inefficiencies were found where the scoring rule could have led to arbitrary, and presumably unwanted, outcomes. Explicitly assigning monetary surcharges to desirable and undesirable environmental effects may be a better way to reach environmental targets.

    Politiskt våld i Indien: Från tre perspektiv: Territoriets odelbarhet, Nationalism & Fundamentalism2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Uppsatsens syfte är att söka förklara politiska våldet i Indien utrifrån tre perspektiv; territoriell odelbarhet, nationalism och fundamentalism. Avgränsningen är de etniska minoriteterna; assameser, bodo, kashmirer, muslimer, naga, sikher, tripura och ursprungsstammar. Åren som uppsatsen har fokus på är 1985-2000. Uppsatsen är en fallstudie av Indien där åtta olika etniska minoriteter är studieobjekt. Maryland Universitys MAR-databas, Uppsala universitets UCDP-databas samt South Asia Terrorism Portal (SATP-databasen) fungerar som huvudsakliga källor.

    Resultatet visar att den territoriella odelbarheten har stark förklaringskraft i de flesta av fallen (sju av åtta) i Indien. Nationalismen är en förklaring i vissa av studieobjekten medan fundamentalismen i endast i fåtal av fallen. För muslimernas del ger dessa perspektiv ingen förklaring för det politiska våldet.

    Title: Mutual funds; administration fees vs. proceeds – Is it profitable to pay a bit more or is it just foolish?

    Seminar date: 2008-06-04

    Course: Master Thesis/D-level

    Authors: Anna Asplund and Malin Elfving

    Advisor: Stig Westerdahl

    Keywords: Mutual funds, Administration fees, TKA, Proceed

    Purpose: The purpose of the study is to investigate if there is a connection between the administration fees of mutual funds and their proceeds. The study aims to examine different kinds of funds which invests in different kinds of markets and if there are differences between these funds.

    Methodology: The study is founded on a deductive research effort since we take our starting-point in existing terminology and theories. Since we wanted to examine a large population we used a quantitative research strategy. In order to determine a connection between the two variables; administration fee and proceed we have used regression-analysis.

    Empirical foundation: We have collected data concerning administration fees and proceed on the funds in the selection from Morningstar, which is an independent publisher of mutual fund information

    Conclusion: It is only for the year of 2005 the study shows a possible negative connection between the administration fees of mutual funds and their proceeds. For the unit trusts a possible connection cannot be established for any of the examined years.

    First Evidence for Differential and Sequential Efferent Effects of stimulus relevance and goal conduciveness appraisal2007In: Biological Psychology, ISSN 0301-0511, Vol. 74, no 3, p. 347-357Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the context of a memory task, participants were presented with pictures displaying biological and cultural threat stimuli or neutral stimuli (goal relevance manipulation) with superimposed symbols signaling monetary gains or losses (goal conduciveness manipulation). Results for heart rate and facial electromyogram show differential efferent effects of the respective appraisal outcomes and provide first evidence for sequential processing, as postulated by Scherer's Component Process Model of emotion. It is suggested that different physiological variables can serve as markers of different underlying processes, with activity over the brow region (M. Corrugator supercilii) signaling cognitive processing, heart rate changes representing response mobilization for action preparation, and activity over the cheek region (M. Zygomaticus major) serving communicative purposes.

    A Conceptual Bridge Between Relations of Power and Social Categorizations2005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper discusses how social categorizations can be of fundamental importance for power relations in intergroup relations during an implementation of cultural diversity in a work organization. One purpose is to present a conceptual bridge between Michel Foucault´s concept of power and Henri Tajfel´s Social Identity Theory. This is done through a conceptual synthesization of Foucault´s concepts hierarchical observation, normalizing judgment and examination and, Tajfel´s concepts social categorization, social comparison, and social identity. Another purpose is to illustrate the conceptual synthesization by analyzing personnel statistics from and interviews at a Swedish hospital and a truck factory. The findings show that cultural diversity would not only be a question about increased awareness or change of attitudes: it is also about a critical questioning of more complex and often invisible normal conditions in terms of particular aspects that cause subtle conflicts in intergroup relations.
