cultural practices. The venture would be, as Hammersley ( 2016 , p. 2) has put it, an exploration in “sense making” about surroundings. While I had read widely about Fiji’s history, politics, sport and cultural scene, and discussed these complexities with academics based in Fiji and other field researchers

unfolding complexity of interpretation ( Tracy, 2010 ). Considering resonance (i.e., Can the research meaningfully reverberate and affect the audience?), we have offered thick descriptions and rich interpretations of the data as well as nine activist discourses that could be transferable to different

contribute to a better understanding of the characteristics and complexities of sports media activism—by focusing especially on how, why, and for what purposes the sports media activists we studied are engaging with sports media in alternative ways. In pursuing these broader goals, we are guided by the

social construct ( Healey & O’Brien, 2014 ) and coding players into discrete racial categories often will not do justice to the true complexity of a player’s racial background. However, coding results closely approximate similar work ( Allison, Adriene, & Barranco, 2018 ; Lapchick, Fox, Guiao, & Simpson

This paper suggests cybernetic strategies for improving organizational control and information systems. The suggestions are based on the postulates of Beer’s cybernetic Viable System Model (VSM). The VSM was based on the way the human body’s neural control system successfully manages the high degree of complexity it regularly faces. The model identifies five linked control subsystems and specifies propositions concerning their information-processing behavior. The five systems are responsible for the following key tasks: policy development, environmental matters, internal control, coordination of basic units, and the basic work of the system. The information-handling propositions focus on providing requisite capacities in (a) the communication channels linking the five control systems, (b) the transducers that carry information across system boundaries, and (c) the complexity of linked pairs of control systems. The suggested management strategies focus on designing organizations to satisfy the task differentiation, communication channel capacity, transducer capacity, and requisite complexity postulates of the model.

This paper presents a framework for an evolving dynamical landscape of movement forms and their stability over the lifespan. It is proposed that the complexity and dimensionality of movement forms can expand and contract on a number of growth/decay time scales of change including those of adaptation, development, and learning. The expansion and contraction is reflected in: (1) the range of potential movement forms of the individual in developmental time; and (2) the dimensionality and complexity of any single movement form at a moment of observation given the confluence of individual, environmental, and task constraints. It is postulated that practice, exercise, and fatigue also coalesce to change the time scales of complexity and dimension of movement forms.
