Obscure academic paper on social instability from successive shocks

I read an abstract / short news article about ten years ago on the concept of successive shocks to any social system (marriage, village, church/group, town, the nation-state) leading to collapse of that system. The main context was societal instability arising from several shocks. I've 'searched high and low for and come up with nothing useful. TW: This uncovers some nasty stuff so unless your area is war / conflict proceed with caution as my question goes down the conflict wormhole. I have three links below to military, terrorism and crisis events studies. [more inside]

Keying with Adobe Premiere Elements

I have a 2013 version of Adobe Premiere Elements 12. There are a number of tutorials for what seems to be Adobe Premiere Elements Pro, but the setup screens are much more complex than then setup screens for my version. Although it seems to have a function for blue and green screen keying under FX Effects, I can't figure out how to make it work. Understandably, it is a less advanced version. but the option seems to be there as well as ten other mattes and luminance keying. Is there a tutorial for my version?

Any way to send mp3s from PC to Hi-Res Walkman via bluetooth?

I have a Sony Hi-Res Walkman that can receive files from other bluetooth devices, but I can't find any information in the Sony documentation that indicates whether this can be done from a Windows PC with bluetooth capability. (In some cases it would be useful for me to transfer files this way instead of plugging in the Walkman and recharging.) Does anyone know if it's possible to do this, and if any third-party software is required (though I know there is nothing from Sony itself to facilitate bluetooth file transfer)?

What is this poorly remembered and vaguely described horror novel?

I was recently talking to someone about books we bailed on as kids because we encountered something too troubling to deal with at the time. I could only think of one example, a psychological horror(?) novel from the late 1990s or very early 2000s. It was pretty much the only book I didn't finish back in the days when I finished everything, and I'd like to try reading it again if I can find it. WARNING: Mentions of fictional sexual abuse below the fold. [more inside]

Android Bibliography and Screenshots App

I've been taking screenshots of public social media posts that I'd like to reference for later use. The screenshot is useful for sharing but I also like to track the original URL. Is there any sort of Android app that could track the URL I have for each image, almost like tagging images in an image gallery? The fewer clicks needed to add, and then copy back out, the better.

How can I achieve the following? I want to be able to keep the videos small (in pixel size, not data size) and have no ugly borders (see IMAGE 1). I want to keep the videos auto-playing.
