Story
Tagline
Tobacco dependence researcher. Clinical psychologist. Husband. Father of three. Yankees fan. Not necessarily in that order.
Introduction
I'm an assistant professor of psychiatry and Associate Director, Division of Addiction Psychiatry at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School where I conduct research on tobacco use and dependence.  As a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers, I also train clinicians in the use of motivational interviewing.  Other professional memberships include the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco (SRNT) and the American Psychological Association's Society of Addiction Psychology (APA Division 50).  I am an Associate Editor for the journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research.

Most of my public posts here on Google+ will be on issues related to tobacco use and dependence.  Other public posts are likely to be about more general psychological science.

I'm also the proud father of three kids, one of whom has Down syndrome, so if you "circle" me, you're likely to see disability advocacy posts (though some will just be sent to my "Intellectual / Developmental Disabilities" circle or relevant communities).

As a big baseball fan, I'll also post about baseball during baseball season, but most of those go just to my "Baseball Fans" circle or the MLB Community.

Lastly, I'm a big fan of David Allen's Getting Things Done (GTD) productivity methodology and have an annoying habit of telling anyone who will listen that they should use it too!  I try to send most of those posts directly to my "GTD" circle or to the Productivity Community.

I moderate my posts, so be nice to each other (on-topic and factual is always appreciated too)!

Very basic #R question

I generally use SAS, but am asking my research assistant to look at a dataset in R to look for out of range variables, non-normal distributions, etc. before we get into data analysis.

Rather than have her put in each variable individually, is there a way to ask for ALL (or at least a large set of) variables in the dataset?

For example, instead of:
hist(var1)
hist(var2)
hist(var3)

Can we just do something similar to: hist(var1-var3)?

Many thanks!

According to the report: "While tobacco companies claim publicly that they do not market to youth or design marketing campaigns that target them, a 2013 study conducted in low- and middle-income countries showed that 22% of five- and six-year-olds surveyed were able to correctly identify Marlboro cigarettes, the world's best-selling cigarette brand."

At a minimum it seems reasonable for tobacco companies to be required to avoid marketing to children.
 
A cohort of consumer advocacy groups are calling for Philip Morris International to end its global "Be Marlboro" campaign, and is calling for all countries to adopt stricter regulations that would in effect ban all marketing, promotion and sponsorship from tobacco companies.

Seeking help running Intraclass correlations in SPSS

I'm trying to compute Intraclass correlations with two raters providing ratings (between 1 to 7) on a very small dataset (N=8; hardly ideal, I know).

When I run the ICC, I get .000 even though there is clearly reasonable agreement (see below).  Is this because Rater2 gave all the same ratings?  Is there anything I can do to to get an accurate ICC estimate?

Many thanks in advance!

Ah, yes, that's true. Though the Kappa would be corrected for expected random agreement, which would be rather low given your five point scale (?). Hence, it would still reflect the high level of agreement between your raters, I'd think. Though the possibility of ceiling effects inflating it does spring to mind.

A nice, annual reminder from the Special Olympics and Best Buddies International about how hurtful and unacceptable the "R" word is.

Sadly, I suspect I should turn off the comments section for this post.

DO check email first thing in the morning (or at least do send it).

I really wish all anti-smoking ads were this straightforward. I am so freaking sick of seeing the disgusting things the manipulative anti-smoking groups produce. I think those campaigns are the absolute worst in existence in the United States. I don't think smoking groups are to blame for the youth smoking at all, I think anti-smoking groups are.

I'd love to take my kids to a baseball game where the players didn't use tobacco products

Fears that players’ children, and young fans, will follow their lead are well founded. A survey done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2009 found that 15 percent of high school boys were using smokeless tobacco, a 36 percent increase from 2003.

An amusing take on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and Productivity

...studies have shown that productivity levels fall dramatically when you’re asleep. While sleeping, you will be hard pressed to succeed in writing that paper or responding to those emails....
