  1. Government and energy - 19-20. century - 2002-2006 seminar

    Energy is the industrial domain where the French government has always been at the same time and since the very beginning, the lawmaker, the operator, the regulator and the financing body. Real motive sector of the different industrializing phases, energy (coal, gas, electricity, petroleum) has always been strategic as well as the favoured field for the emergence of the public utility notion. The specificities of the 'French energy model' and the role played by the government have been the object of a three year analysis by historians, economists and energy actors and presented at a seminar made of successive round tables regularly organized in Paris from fall 2003 to spring 2006. These proceedings gather about 30 presentations and testimonies dealing with the role of the French government in the energy domain and with the complex relations between the government and the energy operators. Content: 1 - the government and its intervention means: French gas companies and the government: decision logics of the public supervision; historical prospect of government and electricity in France; role of the government in the development of coal resources in France from the end of the 18. century to the end of the 19. century; the French coal industry from 1914 to 1946: a limited modernization; bad luck for the French coal (1944-1960); economic analysis of the French coal industry life cycle: the ultimate phase (1970-2004); force and inertia of the French nuclear policy - a joint evolution of technology and institutions; the Mine corps and the industry from the 1950's to the 1980's; the public opinion sensibility with respect to energy saving (1974-1986); 2 - looking for energy policies - a network of French actors: the vision of administrative procedures in energy public companies (1945-1975); government's intervention in financing the energy sector; fate of municipal gas and electric utilities in France; the creation of the petroleum general union; the main trends of the

    Aguilar Pérez, Marta

    2016-01-01

    This chapter aims to unravel the complex array of academic events, called seminars, drawing on the literature and research carried out in the past decades. As seminar tends to be an umbrella term encompassing different realities, two main strands of research are identified. In fact, two different genres can be said to exist even though they are both academic and research-process genres (Swales 1990, 2004; Weissberg 1993). The first is strictly speaking a pedagogic genre that mainly involves s...

  4. Hydro-Quebec's Strategic Plan 2002-2006 : summary

    A corporate profile of Hydro-Quebec was presented and the strategy that the utility will adopt for the 2002-2006 period was summarized. The utility plans to maintain its service quality and sustain environmental quality while developing a world class enterprise. Quebec has adopted a heritage pool giving Quebec consumers access to a maximum of 165 TWh of electricity per year at an average commodity rate of 2.79 cents per kilowatt-hour, the lowest rate for such a large amount of energy in North America. Above that volume, supply for the Quebec market will be ensured through competitive bidding, leading to the signing of supply contracts based on market price. Hydro-Quebec's strategy reflects the business opportunities open to Hydro-Quebec given its traditional activities in the province, the restructuring of North American energy markets, and the emergence of Quebec as a major energy hub. The business opportunities come from the fact that demand for electricity in Quebec is growing and from the opening of markets close to Quebec. Investment outlook in hydroelectric generation and transmission also appears to be profitable. It is likely that investment will be needed to build infrastructure. Hydro-Quebec is also working with its qualified workforce to develop a world-class international activity base. tabs., figs

  7. Sustainability performances of AEX quoted businesses. Trends for the period 2002-2006; Duurzaamheidsprestaties AEX genoteerde bedrijven. Trends over de periode 2002-2006

    Pechtold, F.J.L.; Zoeteman, B.C.J. [Telos, Universiteit van Tilburg, Tilburg (Netherlands)

    2009-07-01

    AEX quoted businesses in the Netherlands have shown an almost continuously increasing tendency towards sustainability in the period 2002-2006. Leaders are the chemical industry, the oil and gas sector, the financial sector and food companies. Little attention for sustainability is yet to be detected in business houses and publishing houses, although the topic is gaining interest. The assertion that sustainability translates into a higher market value of shares cannot be confirmed. A statistical correlation has been noticed, though, between sustainability attitude and environmental performance [mk]. [Dutch] AEX genoteerde bedrijven in Nederland tonen over de periode 2002-2006 vrijwel zonder uitzondering een stijgende tendens in duurzaamheid. Koplopers zijn de chemische industrie, de olie- en gassector, de financiele sector en levensmiddelenbedrijven. Bij handelshuizen en uitgevers is nog weinig aandacht voor duurzaamheid te bespeuren, al wint het onderwerp wel aan belang. De bewering dat duurzaamheid zich laat vertalen in een hogere beurswaarde van aandelen kan niet worden bevestigd. Wel is een statistische correlatie tussen duurzaamheidhouding en milieuprestatie gevonden.

  9. The determinants of Chinese provincial government health expenditures: evidence from 2002-2006 data.

    Pan, Jay; Liu, Gordon G

    2012-07-01

    There is great divergence in provincial government health expenditures in China. Real per capita provincial government health expenditures (GHE) over the period 2002-2006 are examined using panel regression analysis. Key determinants of real per capita provincial GHE are real provincial per capita general budget revenue, real provincial per capita transfers from the central government, the proportion of provincial population under age 15, urban employee basic health insurance coverage, and proportion of urban population. Roughly equal and relatively low elasticities of budget revenue and transfers imply that the GHE is a necessity rather than a luxury good, and transfers have yet to become efficient instruments for the fair allocation of health resources by policy makers. Moreover, severe acute respiratory syndrome outbreak has increased the GHE, but we find no statistical evidence that provincial GHE have fluctuated according to the public health status.

  11. Hepatic adenoma: incidence and management between the year 2002-2006 Hospital R. Calderon Guardia

    The incidence and management of hepatic adenoma at the Hospital Calderon Guardia are analyzed between the years 2002-2006. The main hepatic pathologies diagnosed by biopsy are shown. The relationship of hepatic adenoma with the above risk factors and presentation of each case of hepatic adenoma found are analyzed. The media diagnosed in this type of pathology were investigated. The evolution and control of each case of hepatic adenoma have been studied. The results of the management of each case are compared with the recommended in literature. The ideal management of this type of pathology is analyzed. Among the conclusions is given benign liver pathology as the most frequent cause of liver biopsy in the Hospital Calderon Guardia. Metastatic disease of the digestive tract has been the primary neoplastic disease at the hepatic level. Focal nodular hyperplasia has been the biopsy of benign tumor that is performed more frequently. Hepatic adenoma has been a rare entity, but with significant mortality rates. All cases were presented as solitary lesions. It is more common in women of childbearing age but can occur also in older people and in men. A close relationship has existed between the use of oral gestagens and the incidence of hepatic adenoma. Hepatic adenomas and its complications have been related to its size. Most cases of hepatic adenoma were presented with symptoms. The preoperative studies have shown high sensitivity in the detection of lesions, but little specificity. A protocol for the study of hepatic masses is required. A relationship between the size of the adenoma and possible complications was demonstrated. The reason for surgery in most cases has been the possibility of malignancy in the liver injury. The correlation between preoperative diagnosis and the end was unsuccessful in 75 percent of cases. The mortality related to the procedures did not exist, but if a case of morbidity. The study of liver masses should be more exhaustive to improve

    Full Text Available This paper analyzes the determinants of variability in corporate effective tax rates (ETRs in a multivariate framework, using 2002 2006 Indonesian listed companies micro-level data. Specifically, I examined the association between effective tax rates (ETRs, firm size and variable proxying for firms capital structures and asset mix while controlling from profitability. This studys present evidence that ETRs are associated with the asset mix (level of capital intensity and inventory intensity and return on assets. However, results also show that ETRs are not associated with size and firms capital structure. Additionally, I controlled industry membership in sensitivity analysis because these firm specific characteristics might differ systematically by industry. To ensure the robustness of the result, diagnostic check was also performed. Related to the 2008 tax law amandement, this research can contribute to tax authority in order to identify firms that still have the potential to pay more taxes by looking at their capital intensity and inventory intensity.

  20. Geometric evolution of the Horcones Inferior Glacier (Mount Aconcagua, Central Andes) during the 2002-2006 surge

    2016-01-01

    The Central Andes of Chile and Argentina (31-35°S) contain a large number and variety of ice masses, but only two surging glaciers have been studied in this region. We analyzed the 2002-2006 surge of the Horcones Inferior Glacier, Mount Aconcagua, Argentina, based on medium spatial resolution (15-30 m) satellite images and digital elevation models. During the buildup phase the glacier was stagnant, with velocities lower than 0.1 m/d. In the active-phase velocities reached 14 m/d and the glacier front advanced 3.1 km. At the peak of the active phase (2003-2004), the area-averaged elevation change was -42 m in the reservoir zone (2.53 km2) and +30 m in the receiving zone (3.31 km2). The estimated ice flux through a cross section located at 4175 meter above sea level was 108 m3 during a period of 391 days, a flux that suggests a mean glacier thickness at this location of ~90 m. The depletion phase showed a recovery of the reservoir zone elevation, the down wasting of the receiving zone (-17 m, 2007-2014), and a return to quiescent velocities. The short active phase, the abrupt change in the velocities, and the high level of the proglacial stream indicate a hydrological switch (Alaska type) trigger. The 2002-2006 and 1984-1990 surges of Horcones Inferior were synchronous with the surges of nearby Grande del Nevado Glacier. These events occurred after periods of positive mass balance, so we hypothesize a climate driver.

  4. Evaluation of Bull Trout Movements in the Tucannon and Lower Snake Rivers, 2002-2006 Project Completion Summary.

    Faler, Michael P. [U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; Mendel, Glen; Fulton, Carl [Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife

    2008-11-20

    The Columbia River Distinct Population Segment of bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) was listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act in 1998. One of the identified major threats to the species is fragmentation resulting from dams on over-wintering habitats of migratory subpopulations. A migratory subgroup in the Tucannon River appeared to utilize the Snake River reservoirs for adult rearing on a seasonal basis. As a result, a radio telemetry study was conducted on this subgroup from 2002-2006, to help meet Reasonable and Prudent Measures, and Conservation Recommendations associated with the lower Snake River dams in the FCRPS Biological Opinion, and to increase understanding of bull trout movements within the Tucannon River drainage. We sampled 1,109 bull trout in the Tucannon River; 124 of these were surgically implanted with radio tags and PIT tagged, and 681 were only PIT tagged. The remaining 304 fish were either recaptures, or released unmarked. Bull trout seasonal movements within the Tucannon River were similar to those described for other migratory bull trout populations. Bull trout migrated upstream in spring and early summer to the spawning areas in upper portions of the Tucannon River watershed. They quickly moved off the spawning areas in the fall, and either held or continued a slower migration downstream through the winter until early the following spring. During late fall and winter, bull trout were distributed in the lower half of the Tucannon River basin, down to and including the mainstem Snake River below Little Goose Dam. We were unable to adequately radio track bull trout in the Snake River and evaluate their movements or interactions with the federal hydroelectric dams for the following reasons: (1) none of our radio-tagged fish were detected attempting to pass a Snake River dam, (2) our radio tags had poor transmission capability at depths greater than 12.2 m, and (3) the sample size of fish that actually entered the Snake River

    Full Text Available The lack of studies regarding the determinants of stock price movement in the Indonesia Stock Exchange (ISX, which is an emerging stock exchange in the South East Asia region, and the pursue of generalization became the reasons of why this study. Previous research (Gupta, Chevalier, & Sayekt, 2000; Subiyantoro & Andreani, 2003, mostly focus on the external factors of the firms, instead of the internal factors. This study uses the accounting ratios as the determinants of the prices of stocks’ classified as the LQ45 in the ISX during 2002-2006. The panel-data regression model is used to test whether all of the independent variables involved in the equation could simultaneously explain the behavior of the dependent one. The developed model would be analyzed by the utilization of econometrics package, namely GRETL 1.7.4. After conducting some statistical treatments on the developed model, this study reveals that the shareholders’ ratios consisted of book value per share, dividend payout ratio, EPS, and ROA are the accounting ratios, which determine the LQ45’s stock price movement in the ISX during the period of 2002-2006.

  11. Trend in eating habits among Lithuanian school-aged children in context of social inequality: three cross-sectional surveys 2002, 2006 and 2010

    Zaborskis Apolinaras

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Intermittent monitoring of food intake at the population level is essential for the planning and evaluation of national dietary intervention programs. Social-economic changes in Lithuania have likely affected dietary habits, but only a limited number of temporal studies on food intake trends among young population groups have been published. The aim of this study was to investigate changes in eating habits among Lithuanian school-aged children from 2002 to 2010, and to explore the association of these changes with the respondents' reported socio-economic status (SES. Methods We used Lithuanian data from the cross-national Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC study collected in 2002, 2006 and 2010. Analyses were conducted on comparable questionnaire-based data from children aged 11, 13 and 15 (total n = 17,189 from a random sample of schools. A food frequency questionnaire was used to investigate frequencies of food consumption. Logistic regression was used to examine the affects of changing social variables on reported diet trends. Results In Lithuania, school-aged children have low intakes of fruits and vegetables. Only 21.1% of boys and 27.1% of girls reported daily fruit consumption. Similarly, 24.9% of boys and 29.6% of girls disclosed vegetable intake at least once daily. Comparing 2010 to 2002, the proportion of girls who consumed fruits daily increased from 24.2% to 31.0% (p Conclusions Based on the food consumption trends observed in Lithuania, increases in consumption of fruits and vegetables should be promoted, along with a reduction in the intake of less healthy choices, such as soft drinks and high-fat, high-sugar snack foods, by diminishing social inequalities in food consumption.

  12. Oviposition strategies adopted by gravid Aedes aegypti (L.) (Diptera: Culicidae) as detected by ovitraps in Trinidad, West Indies (2002-2006).

    Chadee, D D

    2009-09-01

    Aedes aegypti oviposition strategies were studied weekly over a period of 5 years (2002-2006) in Curepe, Trinidad using modified ovitraps. From a total of 23,293 ovitraps collected, 10,156 were collected in the months of the dry season, with 3041 positive (30%) containing 99,577 Ae. aegypti eggs. In contrast, during the wet season from 13,137 ovitraps collected, 10,652 were positive (81.9%), containing 192,209 Ae. aegypti eggs. When, the number of eggs collected and the number of positive ovitraps were divided into different egg number categories, 91, significantly more eggs (G=89.6; d.f.=4; P91 eggs. The patterns of oviposition displayed by Ae. aegypti during the early, mid and late wet and dry seasons showed a significant (F=102.8; d.f.=5; Pwet season, significant (F=209.8; d.f.=5; P91 egg category. These results suggest that the oviposition strategies adopted depend on numerous factors including the physical state of the oviposition site, the presence of eggs from conspecific females, whether the same or different individuals and the number or clutch size already present on the oviposition site. Therefore vector control workers should employ source reduction strategies to remove the small containers which may harbour 1-30 eggs and treat the larger permanent containers like water drums which may contain >60 eggs and may be the sites of superoviposition in nature. These combined strategies can effectively control the vector populations and reduce dengue transmission in Ae. aegypti infested countries. PMID:19481998

  18. Report of a research coordination meeting on design criteria for a network to monitor isotope composition of runoff in large rivers (2002-2006)

    The first technical meeting of the coordinated research project entitled 'Design criteria for a network to monitor isotope composition of runoff in large rivers' was held during 13-16 May 2002 with the overall objective to discuss and plan research activities for the 2002-2006 period. The terms of reference for the meeting were as follows: 1. To present and discuss individual study plans developed in consultation with the scientific secretaries including (i) objectives and motivation, (ii) proposed activities, (iii) background and parallel studies, datasets, and previous results, (iv) summary of physical hydrometric network and proposed isotope sampling network, (v) summary of GNIP and other available precipitation isotope data in the basin and surrounding areas, (vi) summary of hydrological processes to be examined and preliminary strategy for analysis and interpretation, and (vii) overview of potential inter-basin or collaborative research opportunities. 2. To conduct working group discussions of specific design criteria for operation of river isotope monitoring networks focusing on: (i) development of conceptual models of basin hydrological cycle and isotope fractionation and selection processes (the so-called isotope transfer functions (ITFs) (ii) theory/methodology to interpret isotope variations in river discharge, (iii) sampling strategies and standardized approaches for monitoring river discharge, (iv) supporting data requirements, (v) development of a standardized database, (vi) timeline of research activities and related publications. Detail work plans for studies were developed for 17 large basins exceeding 160,000 km2 centred on isotope tracing of hydrological process and hydrological impacts of climate change and water development. Four additional basins were also identified where related studies are planned or are underway. While the research questions to be addressed by each group were wide-ranging, as determined by the water resources issues that

    Traditional science lectures and labs are often enhanced through project- and team-based learning. Some students go beyond these classroom studies by conducting research, often under the guidance of university professors. A one-semester astronomy research seminar was initiated in 2006 in collaboration with the community of professional and amateur double star astronomers. The result was dozens of jointly-authored papers published in the Journal of Double Star Observations and the Annual Proceedings of the Society of Astronomical Sciences. This seminar, and its affiliated community, launched a series of conferences and books, providing students with additional forums to share their double star research. The original seminar, and its derivatives, enhanced educational careers through college admissions and scholarships. To expand the seminar's reach, it was restructured from a few teams at one school, to many teams, each from a different school. A volunteer from each school became an assistant instructor. Most of them were seminar veterans, experienced astronomers, or science teachers. The assistant instructors, in turn, recruited enthusiastic students for their teams. To avoid student and instructor overload, the seminar focused on its three deliverables: a formal proposal, published paper, and public PowerPoint presentation. Future seminars may offer other astronomical research options such as exoplanet transit or eclipsing binary photometry.

  20. 关联交易影响因素分析——基于2002-2006年中国国内上市公司的经验证据%Determinants of related-party transactions: Evidence from China's listed companies during 2002-2006

    胡松华; 沈炎琴; 徐月华

    2009-01-01

    为了研究我国上市公司内部治理因素对其关联交易的影响,基于2002-2006年期间国内上市公司披露的69 049笔重大关联交易的样本,回归分析发现:上市公司股权越集中,关联交易规模就越大;独立董事津贴与关联交易规模呈现正相关关系,表明独立董事津贴的增加会导致其对关联交易监督作用的减弱;第二与第三大股东制衡力量的存在可以有效地减少关联交易;上市公司关联交易规模与高级管理人员现金薪酬成反相关关系;当董事长兼任总经理时,关联交易规模会显著增大,反映了公司经营权力的高度集中容易导致内部控制机制的失效.%This study attempts to shed light on the relationship between related-party (RP) transactions and internal governance factors of China's listed companies. An analysis of a sample of 69 049 RP transactions during 2002-2006 reveals strong evidence that the likelihood of RP transactions is higher for companies with high concentration of ownership, but lower for companies with strong bargaining power of the second and third largest shareholders. There is also clear evidence showing that large compensation for outside directors is associated with greater size of RP transactions, whereas increased average compensation for the three top executives tends to decrease the number of RP transactions. Our results also reveal that the pluralism arraignment, i.e. the same person holding both positions of the board chairman and the chief executive, increases the size of RP transactions significantly. This finding suggests that pluralism reduces the balance of power in corporate governance.

  4. Une théorie de l’Etat social

    Bernard Billaudot

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available Dans cet article, on se préoccupe de définir l’Etat social. Pour ce faire, on se dote d’une vision renouvelée de la structure institutionnelle de base de la société moderne. L’Etat social est alors conçu comme une composante plus ou moins développée de tout Etat moderne. Ce qui se met en place au XXème siècle dans les principaux pays occidentaux, en réponse à la question sociale posée dans chaque Etat-nation à la fin du XIXème siècle, et qui comprend la protection sociale, les régulations du marché du travail, les services publics et les politiques macroéconomiques de soutien de l’activité et de l’emploi n’en est qu’une forme particulière. On conclut en montrant que la question écologique impose un élargissement du concept et que l’on ne peut y répondre en restant enfermé dans les logiques de justification propres à la modernité occidentale.This paper deals with the definition of the Welfare State. A renewed vision of the institutional basic pattern of modern society is proposed, in which the Welfare State is conceived as a more or less developed component of any modern State. The Welfare State was set in the main Western countries at the end of the XIXth Century in order to answer the social question. It is a specific form. As a consequence, the ecological question needs to broaden the concept of Welfare State. It is impossible to answer the ecological question if we stay stuck in the system of justification specific to Western modernity.

    Objective To conduct a descriptive epidemiological study on thyroid cancer incidence in the urbanarea of Tianjin during 2002 - 2006 and to analyze the secular trend of incidences based on previous data of 26 years and those from Shanghai and the United States. Methods Annual percent change (APC%) of thyroid cancer incidence and the rank of all-site cancer profiles were estimated. The secular trend of different histological incidences and the proportion changes were analyzed. Results The incidence of female thyroid cancer was 6. 55/100000 in 2006, ranking the eighth in the female cancer profile. The incidence of thyroid cancer showed an increased secular trend in recent 26 years, especially a 5.7-fold increase in the papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). The incidence for female increased by 267% in 2006 compared to that in 1981, APC% was 3. 1%. The variation ranked second among all the female tumors. The incidences of thyroid cancer in Shanghai and the United States also elevated with time.Conclusions Thyroid cancer has been one of female common tumors from a once less common tumor,especially the proportion of PTC is expanding. It suggests that further study on the risk factors and preventive efforts should be made.%目的 对2002-2006年期间天津城市居民的甲状腺癌发病率进行描述性流行病学研究,合并天津市26年的发病率数据进行长期趋势分析,并与历史同期上海市和美国发病率数据进行比较.方法 计算甲状腺癌发病率的年度百分比变化以及全癌谱的发病率顺位,分析不同组织类型的发病率时间趋势以及占全部新发病例的构成比变化.结果 2006年女性甲状腺癌发病率为6.55/10万,位居女性癌谱第8位.近26年天津市甲状腺癌的发病率呈逐年上升趋势,其中乳头状癌的发病率增加了5.7倍.女性甲状腺癌与1981年比较发病率增长了267%,年均增长3.1%,增长速度在全部女性癌症中排第2位.与历史同期上海市与美国女性

  3. Les interpr\\'etations de la m\\'ecanique quantique : une vue d'ensemble introductive

    Boyer-Kassem, Thomas

    2015-01-01

    La m\\'ecanique quantique est une th\\'eorie physique contemporaine r\\'eput\\'ee pour ses d\\'efis au sens commun et ses paradoxes. Depuis bient\\^ot un si\\`ecle, plusieurs interpr\\'etations de la th\\'eorie ont \\'et\\'e propos\\'ees par les physiciens et les philosophes, offrant des images quantiques du monde, ou des m\\'etaphysiques, radicalement diff\\'erentes. L'existence d'un hasard fondamental, ou d'une multitude de mondes en-dehors du n\\^otre, d\\'epend ainsi de l'interpr\\'etation adopt\\'ee. Cet article, en s'appuyant sur le livre Boyer-Kassem (2015), Qu'est-ce que la m\\'ecanique quantique ?, pr\\'esente trois principales interpr\\'etations quantiques, empiriquement \\'equivalentes : l'interpr\\'etation dite orthodoxe, l'interpr\\'etation de Bohm, et l'interpr\\'etation des mondes multiples. Quantum mechanics is a contemporary physical theory which is famous for its paradoxes. For about a century, several interpretations of the theory have been proposed by physicists and philosophers, giving very different images of th...

  5. Factors Influencing Seminar Learning and Academic Achievement.

    Spruijt, Annemarie; Leppink, Jimmie; Wolfhagen, Ineke; Bok, Harold; Mainhard, Tim; Scherpbier, Albert; van Beukelen, Peter; Jaarsma, Debbie

    2015-01-01

    Many veterinary curricula use seminars, interactive educational group formats in which some 25 students discuss questions and issues relating to course themes. To get indications on how to optimize the seminar learning process for students, we aimed to investigate relationships between factors that seem to be important for the seminar learning process, and to determine how these seminar factors account for differences in students' achievement scores. A 57-item seminar evaluation (USEME) questionnaire was administered to students right after they attended a seminar. In total, 80 seminars distributed over years 1, 2, and 3 of an undergraduate veterinary medicine curriculum were sampled and 988 questionnaires were handed in. Principal factor analysis (PFA) was conducted on 410 questionnaires to examine which items could be grouped together as indicators of the same factor, and to determine correlations between the derived factors. Multilevel regression analysis was performed to explore the effects of these seminar factors and students' prior achievement scores on students' achievement scores. Within the questionnaire, four factors were identified that influence the seminar learning process: teacher performance, seminar content, student preparation, and opportunities for interaction within seminars. Strong correlations were found between teacher performance, seminar content, and group interaction. Prior achievement scores and, to a much lesser extent, the seminar factor group interaction appeared to account for differences in students' achievement scores. The factors resulting from the present study and their relation to the method of assessment should be examined further, for example, in an experimental setup. PMID:26075625

  14. Radiology seminars using teaching kits

    Clinco-radiological seminars are an effective method of teaching medical students. However, in busy departments it is often difficult to provide enough radiologists for small group instruction. This can be facilitated by the use of prepared teaching kits. Each kit contains a set of duplicated films and a syllabus which gives a short clinical history for each patient and a series of questions to be used to direct the discussion. Each diagnostic problem is chosen to demonstrate core material. We have been using these teaching kits for organ system teaching in the preclerkship year. Teaching kits offer several advantages. They make it easier to recruit seminar leaders through efficient use of their time. The use of duplicated films and a syllabus ensures that all students cover the same material. The syllabus can be used to generate examination questions for reinforcement of important concepts. The kits are also available to students to review alone and can be readily updated as required

  16. Mercury and drought along the Lower Carson River, Nevada: III. effects on blood and organ biochemistry and histopathology of snowy egrets and black-crowned night-herons on Lahontan Reservoir, 2002-2006

    Hoffman, David J.; Henny, Charles J.; Hill, Elwood F.; Grove, Robert A.; Kaiser, James L.; Stebbins, Katherine R.

    2009-01-01

    A 10-year study (1997-2006) was conducted to evaluate reproduction and health of aquatic birds in the Carson River Basin of northwestern Nevada (on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Natural Priorities List) due to high mercury (Hg) concentrations from past mining activities. This part of the study evaluated physiological associations with blood Hg in young snowy egrets (Egretta thula) and black-crowned night-herons (Nycticorax nycticorax), and organ biochemistry and histopathological effects in snowy egrets on Lahontan Reservoir (LR) from the period 2002-2006. LR snowy egret geometric mean total Hg concentrations (μg/g ww) ranged from 1.5 to 4.8 for blood, 2.4 to 3.1 liver, 1.8 to 2.5 kidneys, 1.7 to 2.4 brain, and 20.5 to 36.4 feathers over these years. For night-herons, mean Hg for blood ranged from 1.6 to 7.4. Significant positive correlations were found between total Hg in blood and five plasma enzyme activities of snowy egrets suggesting hepatic stress. Histopathological findings revealed vacuolar changes in hepatocytes in LR snowy egrets as well as correlation of increased liver inflammation with increasing blood and tissue Hg. Hepatic oxidative effects were manifested by decreased hepatic total thiol concentration and glutathione reductase activity and elevated hepatic thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS), a measure of lipid peroxidation. However, other hepatic changes indicated compensatory mechanisms in response to oxidative stress, including decreased oxidized glutathione (GSSG) concentration and decreased ratio of GSSG to reduced glutathione. In young black-crowned night-herons, fewer correlations were apparent. In both species, positive correlations between blood total Hg and plasma uric acid and inorganic phosphorus were suggestive of renal stress, which was supported by histopathological findings. Both oxidative effects and adaptive responses to oxidative stress were apparent in kidneys and brain. Vacuolar change and inflammation in

    Beuchat, Jean-Luc; Brisebarre, Nicolas; Detrey, Jérémie; Okamoto, Eiji; Shirase, Masaaki; Takagi, Tsuyoshi

    2008-01-01

    Since their introduction in constructive cryptographic applications, pairings over (hyper)elliptic curves are at the heart of an ever increasing number of protocols. Software implementations being rather slow, the study of hardware architectures became an active research area. In this paper, we discuss several algorithms to compute the $\\eta_T$ pairing in characteristic three and suggest further improvements. These algorithms involve addition, multiplication, cubing, inversion, and sometimes ...

  4. Les Etats-Unis, une puissance en crise d’adaptation

    Alexandra de Hoop Scheffer

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Les Etats-Unis se trouvent devant le paradoxe suivant : fustigés par le passé pour leur hyperpuissance envahissante et unilatérale, ils sont aujourd’hui critiqués pour leur impuissance et leur extrême prudence, voire leur inaction, en particulier au Moyen-Orient. Comment le président Obama envisage-t-il de remodeler cette puissance américaine et de l'adapter aux contraintes et aux changements du monde contemporain ? Washington fait face à une crise d'adaptation fondamentale ; les guerres en Afghanistan et en Irak ont montré, au cours des dix dernières années, l'incapacité des Etats-Unis à se transformer et à se mettre au diapason des nouveaux « paramètres » des relations internationales. Elu pour mettre fin aux guerres, Barack Obama reconnaît les limites de la puissance militaire américaine, dans le sens où les Etats-Unis ont de moins en moins « la capacité d’imposer leur volonté aux autres » par la force, à l’heure où la puissance économique et l’innovation technologique sont devenues des critères de puissance aussi, voire plus, importants, que la puissance militaire.

    Presented in 1962-63 by experts at University College, London, these lectures offer a variety of perspectives on graph theory. Although the opening chapters form a coherent body of graph theoretic concepts, this volume is not a text on the subject but rather an introduction to the extensive literature of graph theory. The seminar's topics are geared toward advanced undergraduate students of mathematics.Lectures by this volume's editor, Frank Harary, include ""Some Theorems and Concepts of Graph Theory,"" ""Topological Concepts in Graph Theory,"" ""Graphical Reconstruction,"" and other introduc

  8. Israel Seminar 1996–2000

    Schechtman, Gideon

    2000-01-01

    This volume of original research papers from the Israeli GAFA seminar during the years 1996-2000 not only reports on more traditional directions of Geometric Functional Analysis, but also reflects on some of the recent new trends in Banach Space Theory and related topics. These include the tighter connection with convexity and the resulting added emphasis on convex bodies that are not necessarily centrally symmetric, and the treatment of bodies which have only very weak convex-like structure. Another topic represented here is the use of new probabilistic tools; in particular transportation of measure methods and new inequalities emerging from Poincaré-like inequalities.

  9. Israel Seminar 2001-2002

    Schechtman, Gideon

    2003-01-01

    The proceedings of the Israeli GAFA seminar on Geometric Aspect of Functional Analysis during the years 2001-2002 follow the long tradition of the previous volumes. They continue to reflect the general trends of the Theory. Several papers deal with the slicing problem and its relatives. Some deal with the concentration phenomenon and related topics. In many of the papers there is a deep interplay between Probability and Convexity. The volume contains also a profound study on approximating convex sets by randomly chosen polytopes and its relation to floating bodies, an important subject in Classical Convexity Theory. All the papers of this collection are original research papers.

    Social Service

    2001-01-01

    The 500 or so participants in the fifth Preparation for Retirement seminar held at the end of March were unfortunately deprived of the planned session on the AVS due to the unavailability of the Director of the Caisse Cantonale Genevoise de Compensation (CCGC). We have since had formal confirmation that because of an extra workload due to important changes in the Swiss tax and social legislation and the implementation this summer of the maternity insurance in Geneva, the CCGC has suspended its participation in preparation for retirement seminars in the international organisations for the time being. Conscious of the necessity of offering a session dedicated to the AVS, it is with pleasure that we can inform you that one of our legal advisers, Mr Lorenz Stampfli, has accepted to lead this session. In order to allow for adequate preparation we have reserved the following date: Wednesday 26 September from 14.00 to 16.00 in the Main Amphitheatre The session will be open to all people already registered and any o...

  3. Israel Seminar 2004-2005

    Schechtman, Gideon

    2007-01-01

    This collection of original papers related to the Israeli GAFA seminar (on Geometric Aspects of Functional Analysis) during the years 2004-2005 follows the long tradition of the previous volumes that reflect the general trends of the Theory and are a source of inspiration for research. Most of the papers deal with different aspects of the Asymptotic Geometric Analysis, ranging from classical topics in the geometry of convex bodies, to inequalities involving volumes of such bodies or, more generally, log-concave measures, to the study of sections or projections of convex bodies. In many of the papers Probability Theory plays an important role; in some limit laws for measures associated with convex bodies, resembling Central Limit Theorems, are derive and in others probabilistic tools are used extensively. There are also papers on related subjects, including a survey on the behavior of the largest eigenvalue of random matrices and some topics in Number Theory.

  4. Aligning seminars with Bologna requirements

    Lueg, Klarissa; Lueg, Rainer; Lauridsen, Ole

    2015-01-01

    Changes in public policy, such as the Bologna Process, require students to be equipped with multifunctional competencies to master relevant tasks in unfamiliar situations. Achieving this goal might imply a change in many curricula toward deeper learning. As a didactical means to achieve deep...... learning results, the authors suggest reciprocal peer tutoring (RPT); as a conceptual framework the authors suggest the SOLO (Structure of Observed Learning Outcomes) taxonomy and constructive alignment as suggested by Biggs and Tang. Our study presents results from the introduction of RPT in a large...... course. The authors find that RPT produces satisfying learning outcomes, active students, and ideal constructive alignments of the seminar content with the exam, the intended learning outcomes, and the requirements of the Bologna Process. Our data, which comprise surveys and evaluations from both faculty...

  5. Israel Seminar 2011-2013

    Milman, Emanuel

    2014-01-01

    As in the previous Seminar Notes, the current volume reflects general trends in the study of Geometric Aspects of Functional Analysis. Most of the papers deal with different aspects of Asymptotic Geometric Analysis, understood in a broad sense; many continue the study of geometric and volumetric properties of convex bodies and log-concave measures in high-dimensions and in particular the mean-norm, mean-width, metric entropy, spectral-gap, thin-shell and slicing parameters, with applications to Dvoretzky and Central-Limit-type results. The study of spectral properties of various systems, matrices, operators and potentials is another central theme in this volume. As expected, probabilistic tools play a significant role and probabilistic questions regarding Gaussian noise stability, the Gaussian Free Field and First Passage Percolation are also addressed. The historical connection to the field of Classical Convexity is also well represented with new properties and applications of mixed-volumes. The interplay be...

  6. Future Accelerators Seminar in Japan

    ICFA, the International Committee for Future Accelerators, was set up by the Particles and Fields Commission of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) in 1976. Its mandate was 'To organize workshops for the study of problems related to an international super-high energy accelerator complex (VBA) and to elaborate the framework of its construction and of its use. To organize meetings for the exchange of information on future plans of regional facilities and for the formulation of advice on joint studies and uses.' In the seven years of its existence (it first met in August 1977), ICFA has organized three workshops on the first topic — t w o on 'Possibilities and Limitations of Accelerators and Detectors' (Fermilab, 1978 and Les Diablerets, 1979) and one on 'Possibilities and Limitations for Superconducting Accelerator Magnets' (Protvino, 1981). At an ICFA meeting at Fermilab in August 1983, it was realized that the second topic had been somewhat neglected. It was therefore decided to postpone a fourth workshop scheduled at the Japanese National Laboratory for High Energy Physics (KEK) and to organize instead a Seminar on 'Future Perspectives in High Energy Physics' similar to that held in New Orleans in 1975, which had in fact led to the creation of ICFA.The Seminar (jointly hosted by the Institute of Nuclear Study of Tokyo University and KEK, with support from the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, the Yamada Science Foundation and the Nishina Memorial Foundation) took place from 14-20 May. There were about a hundred participants, mostly senior scientists from Western and Eastern Europe, USA, USSR and Japan (including the Directors of almost all the major high energy physics Laboratories) and representatives from Australia, Canada, China, India, Mexico, South Korea and Vietnam

The economic politics which was followed couldn’t be successful.At this period, Ahmet Hamdi Başar as a economist, said his opinions and propose the opinion of the economic etatism. For this opinion; the government is going to do some investments where the private companies couldn’t do but isn’t going to take the management. After the private companies get the power, the government is going to take its capital and than give the field to the private enterprises.Ahmet Hamdi Başar took hand the İstanbul Habor Company – the first company of the economic etatism. After a successful period with the control of the company by the government, he became the director of Sponge Turkish Joint Stock Company.This company got a good progress and became a bring profit association with the director of Başar. After the severance of Başar from the director of this company, the company started to worsen and than got into debt and finally closed.

  6. INIS/AGRIS training seminar

    The second joint INIS/AGRIS Training Seminar for the two essentially compatible information systems, INIS (International Nuclear Information System) and AGRIS (International System for the Agricultural Sciences and Technology), was held in Vienna, the first having taken place a year ago in Ankara. This year saw an expansion in the number of courses offered, which increased from nine to a total of 16. Additional courses in input preparation, and output utilization were offered, and improved retrieval facilities were available. Two joint courses for INIS and AGRIS magnetic tape users were given. With an increasing number of countries preparing input in machine-readable form, and with increasing utilization of magnetic tape output products, a forum for tape users was a logical addition at this time. Five courses were given in abstracting. INIS ATOMINDEX became the only international abstracting journal in the nuclear sciences with the cessation of Nuclear Science Abstracts at the end of June 1976, when INIS assumed responsibility for the inclusion of good abstracts. The significance of abstract quality and INIS specifications in terms of machine-readable format and characters, length and language were considered in specific courses. The courses on abstracting consisted of basic instruction on general principles, followed by abstracting in the areas of physics, chemistry, engineering and reactor technology, and the life sciences, where aspects specific to the particular field were emphasized. Participants were given an opportunity to attend demonstrations of the optical character recognition equipment and related hardware in use at the IAEA. Five computer terminals were placed at the disposal of seminar participants, thus permitting interactive retrieval of documents in on-line dialogue. An adaptation of STAIRS (STorage And Information Retrieval System by IBM) was used. An INIS test data-base of 60 000 documents and AGRIS test data-base of 80 000 documents were

  10. Freshman Seminars: Interdisciplinary Engagements in Astronomy

    Hemenway, M. K.

    2006-08-01

    The Freshman Seminar program at the University of Texas is designed to allow groups of fifteen students an engaging introduction to the University. The seminars introduce students to the resources of the university and allow them to identify interesting subjects for further research or future careers. An emphasis on oral and written communication by the students provides these first-year students a transition to college-level writing and thinking. Seminar activities include field trips to an art museum, a research library, and the Humanities Research Center rare book collection. This paper will report on two seminars, each fifteen weeks in length. In "The Galileo Scandal" students examine Galileo's struggle with the church (including a mock trial). They perform activities that connect his use of the telescope and observations to astronomical concepts. In "Astronomy and the Humanities" students analyze various forms of human expression that have astronomical connections (art, drama, literature, music, poetry, and science fiction); they perform hands-on activities to reinforce the related astronomy concepts. Evaluation of the seminars indicates student engagement and improvement in communication skills. Many of the activities could be used independently to engage students enrolled in standard introductory astronomy classes.

    This paper introduces the automotive technology seminar held in Thailand as one of the operations for international contribution by The Japan Automobile Research Institute, Inc. The seminar was intended to support automobile-related technology development such as environmental improvement, energy conservation and safety in Asian countries as well as contributing to the sound development of motorization. About 200 people participated in the seminar held at the Bangkok International Trade Center (BITEC) in 1999. The themes were exhaust gas reducing technology and CO2 cutback issues with emphasis on the improvement of the environment. Four speakers from the Research Institute lectured on the experience of technological development heretofore in Japan and on the latest technologies. There were questions asked actively concerning the lectures in the seminar place, giving the lecturers the feel of the participants' strong interest in the activities of the Institute and the exhaust gas reducing technology. On the day before the seminar, a press release was given jointly with the Thailand Automotive Institute to the news media for the opening of the seminar. Many questions were about road traffic systems such as ITS, which seemed to indicate expectations for the technology like ITS as a means to improve traffic congestion. (NEDO)

  11. International Seminar on Gasification 2008

    Held, Joergen (ed.)

    2008-11-15

    In total 20 international and national experts were invited to give presentations (The PPT-presentations are collected in this volume).The seminar was divided into three parts: Production technologies; Applications - Gas turbines and gas Engines - Biomethane as vehicle fuel- Syngas in industrial processes; Strategy, policy and vision. Production of synthetic fuels through gasification of biomass is expected to develop rapidly due to political ambitions related to the strong fossil fuel dependency, especially within the transportation sector, security of supply issues and the growing environmental concern. Techniques that offer a possibility to produce high quality fuels in an efficient and sustainable way are of great importance. In this context gasification is expected to play a central part. The indirect gasification concept has been further developed in recent years and there are now pilot and demonstration plants as well as commercial plants in operation. The RandD activities at the semi-industrial plant in Guessing, Austria have resulted in the first commercial plant, in Oberwart. The design data is 8.5 MW{sub th} and 2.7 MW{sub e} which gives an electric efficiency of 32 % and the possibility to produce biomethane. In this scale conventional CHP production based on combustion of solid biomass and the steam cycle would result in a poor electric efficiency. Metso Power has complemented the 12 MW{sub th} CFB-boiler at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden with a 2 MW{sub th} indirect gasifier. The gasifier is financed by Gothenburg Energy and built for RD purposes. Gothenburg Energy in collaboration with E.ON Sweden will in a first stage build a 20 MW plant for biomethane production (as vehicle fuel and for grid injection) in Gothenburg based on the indirect gasification technology. The plant is expected to be in operation in 2012. The next stage involves an 80 MW plant with a planned start of operation in 2015. Indirect gasification of biomass

  15. Clean coal technologies---An international seminar: Seminar evaluation and identification of potential CCT markets

    The need for environmentally responsible electricity generation is a worldwide concern. Because coal is available throughout the world at a reasonable cost, current research is focusing on technologies that use coal with minimal environmental effects. The United States government is supporting research on clean coal technologies (CCTs) to be used for new capacity additions and for retrofits to existing capacity. To promote the worldwide adoption of US CCTs, the US Department of Energy, the US Agency for International Development, and the US Trade and Development Program sponsored a two-week seminar titled Clean Coal Technologies -- An International Seminar. Nineteen participants from seven countries were invited to this seminar, which was held at Argonne National Laboratory in June 1991. During the seminar, 11 US CCT vendors made presentations on their state-of-the-art and commercially available technologies. The presentations included technical, environmental, operational, and economic characteristics of CCTs. Information on financing and evaluating CCTs also was presented, and participants visited two CCT operating sites. The closing evaluation indicated that the seminar was a worthwhile experience for all participants and that it should be repeated. The participants said CCT could play a role in their existing and future electric capacity, but they agreed that more CCT demonstration projects were needed to confirm the reliability and performance of the technologies

  18. Report on the national seminar on radioimmunoassays

    Deliberations of the National Seminar on Radioimmunoassays (RIA) held at Bombay during 16-20 January 1978 are reported. Various aspects of the application of RIA techniques in India were discussed in the seminar. They included the basic requirements of RIA in India, the state-of-the-art of RIA in India, radiation protection in RIA, quality control of RIA, usefulness and limitations of RIA in clinical diagnosis and use of RIA in tropical infectious diseases. Difficulties encountered in the practice of RIA techniques in India were found to be mainly related to availability of 125I, RIA kits, antisera and hormones. The need for establishing a centralised assay service for RIA was examined and it was concluded that such a step would be premature in the present situation. Recommendations made and guidelines spelt out deal with resources for RIA, research, referral assay service, training and information exchange and dissemination. (M.G.B.)

    1999-07-01

    Leading abstract. A seminar on radioactive waste treatment and disposal was held 9 - 14 November 1998 in Oskarshamn, Sweden. The objective of the seminar was to exchange information on national and international procedures, practices and requirements for waste management. This information exchange was intended to promote the development of a suitable strategy for management of radioactive waste in Northwest Russia to be used as background for future co-operation in the region. The seminar focused on (1) overviews of international co-operation in the waste management field and national systems for waste management, (2) experiences from treatment of low- and intermediate-level radioactive waste, (3) the process of determining the options for final disposal of radioactive waste, (4) experiences from performance assessments and safety analysis for repositories intended for low- and intermediate level radioactive waste, (5) safety of storage and disposal of high-level waste. The seminar was jointly organised and sponsored by the Swedish Radiation Protection Institute (SSI), the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (NRPA), the Nordic Nuclear Safety Research (NKS) and the European Commission. A Russian version of the report is available. In brief, the main conclusions are: (1) It is the prerogative of the Russian federal Government to devise and implement a waste management strategy without having to pay attention to the recommendations of the meeting, (2) Some participants consider that many points have already been covered in existing governmental documents, (3) Norway and Sweden would like to see a strategic plan in order to identify how and where to co-operate best, (4) There is a rigorous structure of laws in place, based on over-arching environmental laws, (5) Decommissioning of submarines is a long and complicated task, (6) There are funds and a desire for continued Norway/Sweden/Russia co-operation, (7) Good co-operation is already taking place.

  1. Seminar on waste treatment and disposal

    Leading abstract. A seminar on radioactive waste treatment and disposal was held 9 - 14 November 1998 in Oskarshamn, Sweden. The objective of the seminar was to exchange information on national and international procedures, practices and requirements for waste management. This information exchange was intended to promote the development of a suitable strategy for management of radioactive waste in Northwest Russia to be used as background for future co-operation in the region. The seminar focused on (1) overviews of international co-operation in the waste management field and national systems for waste management, (2) experiences from treatment of low- and intermediate-level radioactive waste, (3) the process of determining the options for final disposal of radioactive waste, (4) experiences from performance assessments and safety analysis for repositories intended for low- and intermediate level radioactive waste, (5) safety of storage and disposal of high-level waste. The seminar was jointly organised and sponsored by the Swedish Radiation Protection Institute (SSI), the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (NRPA), the Nordic Nuclear Safety Research (NKS) and the European Commission. A Russian version of the report is available. In brief, the main conclusions are: (1) It is the prerogative of the Russian federal Government to devise and implement a waste management strategy without having to pay attention to the recommendations of the meeting, (2) Some participants consider that many points have already been covered in existing governmental documents, (3) Norway and Sweden would like to see a strategic plan in order to identify how and where to co-operate best, (4) There is a rigorous structure of laws in place, based on over-arching environmental laws, (5) Decommissioning of submarines is a long and complicated task, (6) There are funds and a desire for continued Norway/Sweden/Russia co-operation, (7) Good co-operation is already taking place

    Full Text Available Can federal-state relations affect popular protests? Using an extensive dataset measuring local protests in the Argentine provinces (2002–2006, I assess the effects of the president’s and governors’ tactical allocations on the persistence of contentious events. I analyze how the delivery of federal resources, to both provincial governments and local social organizations, affects the chances of protests occurrence and the nature of its demands. Results show that federal spending increases the frequency of protests in the Argentine provinces, particularly when provincial governments are not involved in its delivery. In addition, protest demands are sensitive to president’s discretional expenditure, suggesting a different dynamics in which protests became a legitimate channel to obtain federal monies.¿Las relaciones entre el presidente y los gobiernos subnacionales podrían influir en la protesta social? Usando una exhaustiva base de datos sobre protesta en provincias argentinas (2002-2006, analizo los efectos que las distintas estrategias de distribución de recursos de los gobernadores y del presidente tienen en la persistencia de los eventos contenciosos. En particular, estudio cómo la distribución de recursos federales, tanto a gobiernos provinciales como a organizaciones sociales locales, afecta las probabilidades de que surjan protestas y la naturaleza de sus demandas. Los resultados muestran que el gasto federal aumenta la frecuencia de las protestas en las provincias argentinas, en particular, cuando los gobiernos provinciales no intervienen en su asignación. También que las demandas de las protestas son sensibles al gasto discrecional del presidente, sugiriendo una dinámica particular en la cual la protesta se convierte en un canal legítimo para obtener fondos federales.

  17. 3D analysis methods - Study and seminar

    The first part of the report results from a study that was performed as a Nordic co-operation activity with active participation from Studsvik Scandpower and Westinghouse Atom in Sweden, and VTT in Finland. The purpose of the study was to identify and investigate the effects rising from using the 3D transient com-puter codes in BWR safety analysis, and their influence on the transient analysis methodology. One of the main questions involves the critical power ratio (CPR) calculation methodology. The present way, where the CPR calculation is per-formed with a separate hot channel calculation, can be artificially conservative. In the investigated cases, no dramatic minimum CPR effect coming from the 3D calculation is apparent. Some cases show some decrease in the transient change of minimum CPR with the 3D calculation, which confirms the general thinking that the 1D calculation is conservative. On the other hand, the observed effect on neutron flux behaviour is quite large. In a slower transient the 3D effect might be stronger. The second part of the report is a summary of a related seminar that was held on the 3D analysis methods. The seminar was sponsored by the Reactor Safety part (NKS-R) of the Nordic Nuclear Safety Research Programme (NKS). (au)

  19. Wind Turbine Tribology Seminar - A Recap

    Errichello, R.; Sheng, S.; Keller, J.; Greco, A.

    2012-02-01

    Tribology is the science and engineering of interacting surfaces in relative motion. It includes the study and application of the principles of friction, lubrication, and wear. It is an important phenomenon that not only impacts the design and operation of wind turbine gearboxes, but also their subsequent maintenance requirements and overall reliability. With the major growth and increasing dependency on renewable energy, mechanical reliability is an extremely important issue. The Wind Turbine Tribology Seminar was convened to explore the state-of-the-art in wind turbine tribology and lubricant technologies, raise industry awareness of a very complex topic, present the science behind each technology, and identify possible R&D areas. To understand the background of work that had already been accomplished, and to consolidate some level of collective understanding of tribology by acknowledged experts, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) hosted a wind turbine tribology seminar. It was held at the Renaissance Boulder Flatiron Hotel in Broomfield, Colorado on November 15-17, 2011. This report is a summary of the content and conclusions. The presentations given at the meeting can be downloaded. Interested readers who were not at the meeting may wish to consult the detailed publications listed in the bibliography section, obtain the cited articles in the public domain, or contact the authors directly.

  20. Annual seminar on electronic sources of information

    With the rapid development in IT and the emergence of Internet, a multitude of information sources are now available on electronic media. They include e-journals and other electronic publications - online databases, reference documents, newspapers, magazines, etc. In addition to these online sources, there are thousands of CD-ROM databases. The CD-ROM databases and the online sources are collectively referred to as electronic sources of information. Libraries in no part of the world can afford to ignore these sources. Emergence of these new sources has resulted into a change in the traditional library functions including collection development, acquisitions, cataloguing, user instructions, etc. It is inevitable that in the next five to ten years, special libraries may have to allocate considerable amount towards subscription of e-journals and other e-publications. The papers in this seminar volume discuss several aspects related the theme of the seminar and cover e-journals, different sources available in the Net, classification of electronic sources, online public access catalogues, and different aspects of Internet.

  4. Regional Seminars to Address Current Nuclear Export Control Issues

    The control of nuclear-related exports, a critical component of the nonproliferation regime, is facing several opportunities and challenges. As countries sign and ratify the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) safeguards Additional Protocol (AP), they will begin to report far more export information, including exports of a list of items similar to the Nuclear Supplier Group's Trigger List that existed when the AP was developed in the mid-1990s. This positive development contrasts with challenges such as globalization, transshipments, and tracking of end-uses. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is proposing that the US Department of Energy (DOE) develop regional seminars that address these types of issues related to export/import controls. The DOE seminars would be designed to supplement regional seminars sponsored by the IAEA and member states on topics related to the Additional Protocol (referred to as 'IAEA seminars'). The topic of nuclear export/import controls is not thoroughly addressed in the IAEA seminars. The proposed DOE seminars would therefore have two objectives: familiarizing countries with the export/import provisions of the Additional Protocol, and addressing challenges such as those noted above. The seminars would be directed particularly at countries that have not ratified the AP, and at regions where export-related problems are particularly prevalent. The intent is to encourage governments to implement more effective nuclear export control systems that meet the challenges of the 21st century.

    Full Text Available The seminar and classification of seminars in secondary school were considered. It was analysed the groups of the seminars, types of the seminars by means of activity, by deductive aim. The seminar is the form of independent scientific and research work which enables the reception of scientific and informative skills during preparation for seminar. Choice of small quantity of a material for a seminar gives possibility for pupils to take the floor with his report, generalizing and proving his point of view and developing logical thinking.

  8. Biological Physics : Poincaré seminar

    Bio-physique : séminaire Poincaré

    2011-01-01

    This new volume in the Poincaré Seminar Series, describing recent developments at the interface between physics and biology, is directed towards a broad audience of physicists, biologists, and mathematicians. Both the theoretical and experimental aspects are covered, and particular care is devoted to the pedagogical nature of the presentations. The first survey article, by Jean-Francois Joanny and Jacques Prost, describes the theoretical advances made in the study of "active gels", with applications to liquid crystals and cell motility. Jasper van der Gucht and Cécile Sykes then report on recent advances made with biomimetic model systems in the understanding of cytokinesis. The next article, by Jonathon Howard, presents several molecular models for motor proteins, which are compared with experimental results for kinesin. David Lacoste and Kirone Mallick then show theoretically that similar ratchet models of motor proteins naturally satisfy a fundamental time-reversal symmetry, the Gallavotti-Cohen fluctuat...

  10. Proceedings of the Management options information seminar

    This seminar was held in order to provide an opportunity to participants to broaden their knowledge concerning the numerous management options that are available when dealing with emissions generated by the electric power sector. It also represented an opportunity to gather information with regard to a host of different options to support the Electricity Project Team. The presentations centred on topics such as assessment, design and development of management options for the emissions of the electric power industry in Alberta. The legal, economic, social and environmental aspects were considered by the speakers for the options, and the perspectives included experience gained from hands on projects and initiatives. The reasons underlying the selection of options were revealed and lessons learned examined. Of the 14 presentations and the closing remarks speech, two presentations were included in this database. refs., tabs., figs

  11. Nordic Seminar on Waste Problems in Russia

    This presentation describes a Nordic seminar held in 1998 that focused on radioactive waste disposal in Northwest Russia and that gave special attention to a repository which planned on Novaya Zemlya. The existing plans originated in a programme formulated by the Russian Federation for the period 1996-2005 and titled The Federal Programme: The Management of Radioactive Waste and Spent Nuclear Fuel - Treatment and Final Disposal. The sea around Novaya Zemlya is important to the fishery industry in both Norway and Russia. And there is great Norwegian concern about the vulnerable Arctic environment. Geological conditions are of course crucial to waste disposal, and according to Russian experts, the permafrost bedrock on Novaya Zemlya will provide added safety. Permafrost is a source of a major complex of uncertainties, but there is Western expertise available that might provide international assessment of the construction plans

  16. The effects of participating in the 3rd Nordcode seminar

    Hansen, Claus Thorp

    My motivation for co-organise and participate in the 3’rd Nordcode seminar was threefold. Firstly, it gave me an opportunity to get insight into the Nordcode research area, which is defined as communicative product design seen from a Nordic perspective. Secondly, I would learn about state......-of-the-art, current research questions and research methods within this research area. Thirdly, I had a change to meet and discuss with Nordic colleagues. In the invitation to the 3’rd Nordcode seminar “Design communication” the organisers outlined the seminar theme as follows: “Design is about communication in many...... in the design process? · Conceptualisation - How can designers communicate early design ideas/concepts within a design team? And with potential consumers?” The purpose of this report is to make a balance on my personal outcome of participating in the seminar. I will make this balance by focusing on...

  1. High School and Community College Astronomy Research Seminar

    Genet, Russell M.; Boyce, Pat; Buchheim, Robert; Collins, Dwight; Freed, Rachel; Harshaw, Richard; Johnson, Jolyon; Kenney, John; Wallen, Vera

    2016-06-01

    For the past decade, Cuesta College has held an Astronomy Research Seminar. Teams of high school and community college students, with guidance from instructors and advanced amateur astronomers, have made astronomical observations, reduced their data, and submitted their research results to appropriate journals. A variety of projects, using modest-aperture telescopes equipped with low-cost instruments, are within reach of motivated students. These include double star astrometry, variable star photometry, and exoplanet transit timing. Advanced scientific knowledge and mastery of sophisticated experimental skills are not required when the students are immersed within a supportive community of practice. The seminar features self-paced, online learning units, an online textbook (the Small Telescope Astronomical Research Handbook), and a supportive website sponsored by the Institute for Student Astronomical Research (www.In4StAR.org). There are no prerequisites for the seminar. This encourages everyone—including underrepresented minorities and persons with disabilities—to participate. Each participant contributes as their time, talents, and experience dictates, thus replicating the modern, professional research team. Our spring 2015 seminar was the largest yet. Volunteer assistant instructors provided local in-person leadership, while the entire seminar met online for PowerPoint presentations on proposed projects and final research results. Some 37 students from eight schools finished the seminar as coauthors of 19 papers published in the January 2016 volume of the Journal of Double Star Observations. Robotic telescopes devoted to student research are coming online at both Concordia University and the Boyce Astronomical Robotic Observatory, as is a central online sever that will provide students with uniform, cost-free reduction and analysis software. The seminar has motivated many of its graduates to pursue careers in science, engineering, and medicine, often with

    Christine Delfour

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available « L’Eglise en Bolivie est le principal ennemi des réformes », certains « secteurs de l’Eglise catholique, la hiérarchie catholique sont les ennemis des transformations politiques », « une autre foi, une autre religion (hors Eglise catholique et également une autre Eglise, tout ceci est positif, mes frères et sœurs ». Voici quelques citations d’Evo Morales, premier président indien de la Bolivie, qui illustrent les tensions existantes entre le gouvernement et l’Eglise catholique ainsi que la nouvelle réalité institutionnelle du pays en matière de religion : la liberté de culte et de pratiques spirituelles des peuples indigènes et de toute autre confession religieuse. La Nouvelle Constitution Politique de l’Etat Plurinational (février 2009 reconnaît l’indépendance de l’Etat en matière religieuse, un Etat qui « respecte et garantit la liberté de religion et de croyances spirituelles en accord avec les cosmovisions ». Il s’agit d’un changement radical par rapport à la Constitution de 1967 qui, dans son article 3, énonce que « l’Etat reconnaît et soutient la religion catholique, apostolique et romaine ». Dès lors, nous nous interrogerons, d’une part, sur les relations entre l’Eglise et l’Etat républicain et, d’autre part, sur la place des croyances (des rites et des symboles dans le contexte politique de la « refondation » de la nation bolivienne et de l’Etat.« The Bolivian Church is the main enemy of reforms », « some sectors of the Catholic Church, the Catholic Hierarchy, are the enemies of political changes », « another faith, another religion (outside the Catholic Church, and also another church, all this is positive, my brothers and sisters ».

  12. Seminare mit Klinischem Bezug und Integrierte Seminare: Bestandsaufnahme zur Umsetzung der (neuen ÄAppO ["Integrated Seminars" versus "Seminars with Clinical Context" - Analysis of the Effects of the Medical Licensure Act (ÄAppO

    Ball, Sabine

    2008-08-01

    Full Text Available [english] The new Medical Licensure Act (Approbationsordnung für Ärzte 2002, ÄAppO involves several changes to preclinical education: In particular, the new “seminars with clinical context” and “integrated seminars” stipulated by the ÄAppO are points of discussion. Since there are only a few publications on this topic, it is the target of this article to describe the “new” seminars and to comment on their implementation. We contacted all 36 German medical faculties and, using a semistandardized questionnaire (rate of return: 50%, surveyed them about their implementation and appreciation of these seminars. Thirty-nine percent of medical faculties combine both seminars into one course. In the remaining faculties, there seems to be a close conceptual connection between these seminars, so that the actual difference between the two remains blurred. In many cases, the new seminars are integrated into preexisting seminars and practical training courses. Only two out of three medical faculties seem to have concrete instructions in the curriculum regarding the implementation of these seminars. The integration of clinical content in preclinical education enjoys a high acceptance among students and teaching staff alike. However, there has been criticism that, by fulfilling the concrete legal requirements of the new ÄAppO, students are overburdened in terms of time and content and the faculties’ teaching capacity is overstretched. Nevertheless, we can conclude that the requirements of the ÄAppO concerning implementation of the new seminars are being fulfilled. [german] Die neue Approbationsordnung für Ärzte vom 27.06.2002 brachte auch für den vorklinischen Bereich einige Neuerungen mit sich. So sind insbesondere die nun eingeführten „Seminare mit Klinischem Bezug“ bzw. „Integrierten Seminare“ nach § 2 Abs. 2 zu nennen.

  13. Modificaciones constitucionales en Bélgica. La "sixième réforme" de l'Etat: Un proceso en marcha

    Anna Mastromarino

    2015-10-01

    Full Text Available The Accord du Papillon started the Belgium Sexième réforme de l’Etat. After a long institutional crisis, an agreement between the major parties seemed the best way to ensure a stable government to the country and to enhance a new season of constitutional reforms. It consisted, so far, in two sessions (2012 and 2014 that brought to the adoption of both legislative and constitutional acts. Two reforms appear crucial. First and foremost, the Sexième réforme de l’Etat set forth the criteria to divide the Bruxelles-Hal Vilvorde district. Furthermore, it determined the Senate reform. Nonetheless, in the past months, the reformist enthusiasm decreased gradually, but probably this is a temporary situation: in Belgium, things are more complicated than they seem, so it is hard to have the last word.

  15. Medical Radioisotope Scanning. Proceedings of a Seminar

    Of the many and varied uses of radioactive isotopes which have been developed in the past twenty years, their applications in medicine are among the most important. All over the world medical scientists have added radioisotopes to their armament in clinical research, diagnosis and radiotherapy. It is significant that the first scientific meeting organized by the International Atomic Energy Agency was devoted to a medical subject. It is not less significant as a symbol of the close co-operation which has been established between the Agency and other agencies of the United Nations family, that this first seminar was a joint undertaking with the World Health Organization. The determination of the distribution of a radioisotope within the human body - radioisotope scanning - is a technique which has made very rapid progress in the last few years in various medical centres throughout the world, and the necessity of providing an opportunity for an organized exchange of results, experience and opinions was clearly recognised. The value of such an exchange is demonstrated by the extensive discussions which took place and which are recorded in this volume, together with the original papers presented by those who have made such noteworthy contributions to progress in this field.

Primordial monopoles would have been produced in the Early Universe and still be present today, either in cosmic rays or trapped in matter. Monopoles of accessible masses would also be pair-produced at high-energy accelerators. Their remarkable properties can be exploited to devise various means of direct detection. After reviewin...

  14. The SUPERCOMET 2 Project: Teacher Seminar and Teacher Guide

    Engstrom, V.; Ireson, G.; Latal, H.; Mathelitsch, L.; Michelini, M.; Peeters, W.; Rath, G.

    2008-05-01

    The Leonardo da Vinci pilot projects SUPERCOMET (2001-2004) and SUPERCOMET 2 (2004-2007) developed and tested teacher training materials for active, minds-on learning of electromagnetism and superconductivity at the level of upper secondary school. New multimedia materials for the pupils supported the teacher materials, including a teacher seminar in 4 half-day modules detailing the scientific contents, teaching methods, using ICT in physics teaching and learning, online collaboration and further resources for exploring the selected topics. The aim of these projects were to improve the quality of physics teaching on a European level, involving a combined total of 45 partners in 16 countries, and conducting trials at 67 schools with approx. 230 teachers, 280 trainee teachers and 2200 pupils. New follow-up projects develop hands-on materials for carrying out the activities described in the teacher guide and seminars and additional teacher materials involving modelling, simulations and data logging.

  15. Technical Writing and Communication in a Senior-Level Seminar

    Wallner, A. S.; Latosi-Sawin, Elizabeth

    1999-10-01

    To prepare chemistry majors for entry into graduate school and professional life, a senior-level seminar has been designed at Missouri Western State College that introduces students to scientific journals and aspects of professional communication. Students select topics, conduct research, report progress, write summaries for technical and nontechnical audiences, prepare abstracts, organize outlines, and present a formal research paper. At semester's end, each student delivers a 45-minute seminar to peers and departmental faculty, using easily learned presentation software. Faculty who would adopt this approach need to guide student research, emphasize purpose and audience, illustrate a synthesis of sources, support writing as a process, and help students overcome their fear of public speaking.

  16. Analysis of Twitter usage in an exploratory seminar setting

    Wolfgang Reinhardt

    2013-03-01

    Full Text Available Despite the massive social and technological changes that have occurred due to the Web in the recent years, university courses often still emphasize time-honored teaching methods with classical learning tools and resources. During these courses students often acquire knowledge that is not up-to-date and detached from problem-based, realistic learning. The use of more recent tools and methods often remains out of student’s grasp. In this article we briefly report on an exploratory seminar setting at two German universities where the use of Social Media for communication and collaboration was firmly embedded in the educational setup. Furthermore, we illustrate the usage of Twitter during the seminar using techniques from Social Network Analysis.

  19. First International Seminar on Radiation and Thyroid Cancer

    The seminar was held July 20-23, 1998, at St. John's College, Cambridge, England. A total of 155 delegates from 23 countries attended the conference. The principal aims of the meeting were to describe the link between radiation and thyroid cancer, and to explore the many factors influencing the interaction between radiation and the thyroid cell, which together determine the likelihood that a cancer may result

  20. Description and evaluation of a didactical concept for online seminars

    Stiller, Klaus D.; Kreuzpointner, Ludwig; Lukesch, Helmut

    2013-01-01

    We first describe the didactics of eight online courses. Each seminar mostly consists of 14 modules, which are essentially worked through in linear sequence, each module normally within a week. Didactics combine imparting of knowledge by direct instruction according to the nine instructional steps by Gagné, Briggs and Wager (1988) and an avoidance of ‘sluggish’ knowledge via stimulation of learner activities mainly by transfer tasks. We then discuss and summarize some evaluative results. Gene...

  2. Eddy current seminar, 24-26 Mar 1986

    The paper concerns the Eddy Current Seminars, held at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, United Kingdom, March 1986. Twenty two papers were presented on eddy current phenomena, and two of the papers are indexed separately. The first deals with a finite difference scheme for time dependent eddy currents in Tokamaks, the second is an analysis of the FELIX experiments with cantilevered beams and hollow cylinders. (UK)

  3. US-Swedish Seminar on Function Spaces and Applications

    Peetre, Jaak; Sagher, Yoram; Wallin, Hans

    1988-01-01

    This seminar is a loose continuation of two previous conferences held in Lund (1982, 1983), mainly devoted to interpolation spaces, which resulted in the publication of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics Vol. 1070. This explains the bias towards that subject. The idea this time was, however, to bring together mathematicians also from other related areas of analysis. To emphasize the historical roots of the subject, the collection is preceded by a lecture on the life of Marcel Riesz.

  7. A High School Project Seminar on Sea Level Rise

    Seitz, M.; Bosch, W.

    2012-04-01

    In Bavaria the curriculum of the upper grade of high school includes a so called project seminar, running over one and a half year. The aims of the seminar are to let the pupils learn to work on a specific topic, to organize themselves in a team, to improve their soft skills and become familiar with the working life. The topic of the project seminar, jointly organized by the Bertold-Brecht-Gymnasium in Munich and the Deutsche Geodätische Forschungsinstitut (DGFI) was on the "Global sea level rise". A team of 13 pupils computed the mean sea level rise by using on the one hand altimetry data of TOPEX, Jason-1 and Jason2 and on the other hand data of globally distributed tide gauges, corrected for vertical crustal movements derived from GPS products. The results of the two independent approaches were compared with each other and discussed considering also statements and discussions found in press, TV, and the web. Finally, a presentation was prepared and presented at school.

  9. Proceedings of the beam-beam interaction seminar

    The beam-beam interaction has been and continues to be a performance limiting effect in colliding beam systems. Electron-positron collisions are typically more than a factor of five lower in luminosity than expectations from beam design and with present understanding, extrapolations to future systems are not satisfactory. Prediction and optimized design are even more uncertain for proton-proton and proton-antiproton future systems with the ISR at CERN being the sole precedent. The very health of the high energy physics program in the next decades depends to a significant extent on our ability to unravel the mechanisms of this phenomenon and to control them. There have been a variety of studies, including a plasma model of e+e- collisions, models emphasizing the effects of noise and a model involving a diffusion-damping equilibrium. Various nonlinear analyses of the beam-beam systems have also been performed. And finally an entirely new form of beam-beam configuration has been proposed and studied - the very strong single pass collider. In view of this extensive and broad effort, there was organized an informal seminar to bring many of these ideas into an open forum. This seminar was held at SLAC on May 22 and 23, 1980. Contributors, totaling seventeen, came from universities and national laboratories across the United States. These proceedings represent a record of the seminar. The written versions of the papers presented were submitted by the authors and are included here without editing

    2009-04-01

    Graduate seminars typically involve reviewing key papers, ranging from seminal contributions by pioneers to the latest cutting-edge results published in journals such as Nature, Science, and Geophysical Research Letters. Ideally, guest lecturers are invited to add specific expertise and stimulate discussions. However, the increasing costs for travel make this an expensive proposition. Recent improvements in free videoconferencing over the Internet make it possible to invite distant experts to participate in seminars without involving expensive and time-consuming travel. Tools to record video conferences allow anyone to combine narrations with slide presentations and prepare merged video files for distribution over the Internet (i.e., podcasts). This brief report discusses such an experiment in a graduate seminar on advanced plate tectonics in the Department of Geology and Geophysics at University of Hawai`i at Manoa's (UHM) School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST). The podcasts are freely available from iTunes (UHM; SOEST; Public Course Lectures) and from http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/pwessel/podcasts.

  17. Climate technology initiative capacity building seminar: best practice in climate technology and energy efficiency in central and eastern Europe. Seminar Proceedings

    Pichl, P. [ed.

    2000-08-01

    The Capacity Building Seminar on 'Best Practice in Climate Technology and Energy Efficiency in Central and Eastern Europe', held 6-10 December 1999 in Marienthal/Ostritz in Germany, was a very successful event in the framework of the CLIMATE TECHNOLOGY INITIATIVE (CTI). One reason for that is that the seminar allowed delegates from 22 nations, from Kazakhstan to Estonia, come together for an exchange of opinions about 'Energy Efficiency and Climate Protection' and all related issues. A reason is that this seminar provided an excellent starting point for future networking in Central and Eastern Europe and Asia. The colleagues who got to know each other at the seminar will meet again in future workshops and seminars. They can now contact a colleague from abroad to get information about special questions of Energy Efficiency when they need it. A third reason - and the most important one for the entire co-operation within the CTI organisation - is the special character of the seminar as a starting point for multitude of activities on Energy Efficiency and Climate Protection. At the end of the Ostritz seminar eleven delegations stated that they would organise follow up workshops in their own countries to go deeper into the details and to co-operate on a higher level. It may be that these workshops will be followed by others in other European regions. (orig./GL)

  19. Proceedings of the Seminar on NJOY and THEMIS

    Nuclear evaluated data processing codes are essential tools for the interpretation of basic data stored in files with formats reflecting the complex intrinsic structure of the data. They help users to filter out data and condense it to a form suitable to the physicist and engineer for nuclear application studies. The quality of evaluated data files can be determined by comparing their performance in predicting measured integral quantities. Evaluated data processing is an essential part in this benchmarking activity. Several tools have been developed over the years, but NJOY has taken up an eminent role because of its comprehensive set of features. NJOY and the French version THEMIS have been adopted as the standard processing codes for the JEF project. Considerable experience has been gained over the years from the different releases of NJOY and THEMIS. An important factor contributing to the improvements introduced has been the feedback provided by the users to the authors. The new format ENDF-6 adopted for the new evaluations led to a complete revision of NJOY which was recently released. It was therefore considered timely to organise a seminar in which the code developers and users could exchange information on: - the new features introduced in the most recent version - experience gained and validation of the different processing modules - maintenance, future developments and their co-ordination While a first workshop (1982) aimed at making NJOY known to the user community, the present seminar was aimed at experienced users. About thirty participants have attended the seminar and have contributed interesting presentations and lively discussions

  20. Report of a seminar on natural environmental change

    This document reports the presentations given at a seminar on Natural Environmental Change: Processes Affecting the Deep Disposal of Radioactive Waste in Britain and the ensuing discussion. Following introductory summaries of the Department of the Environment research programme into radioactive waste management and Nirex-funded research into long-term environmental change, four topical presentations were given, namely, ''Climatic Change'', ''Surface Processes'', and ''Stress and Seismicity''. These presentations and the consequent discussion have served to clarify many key aspects of long-term environmental change and have provided direction to the ongoing studies of the effects of environmental change on the performance of deep radioactive waste disposal facilities.

  1. Confluence: A Seminar Series as a Teaching Tool

    Bryan M. Dewsbury

    2013-08-01

    Full Text Available In 2007 Florida International University (FIU received NIH, NSF, and internal support to create a curriculum that was quantitative in nature, and that incorporated some of the most contemporary approaches to the classroom. The QBIC (Quantifying Biology In the Classroom; http://qbic. fiu.edu Program is a specialized program in the Department of Biology specifically set up to implement ‘vision and change’ principles in the department’s overall approach to students. It is now an optional track within the Department of Biological Sciences. We discuss the major objectives of this series, the affect areas that it addresses, as well as how students incorporate the series’ lessons for their own professional development. It became apparent to us anecdotally that our undergraduates were making career choices without the awareness of the many other viable career options in biology. This is not an issue unique to our institution and other authors (1 have discussed steps to address career choice and exposure. At our institution, we created a number of career development initiatives, one of which was a seminar series called “Confluence: where life and science meet.” For this series we invite science professionals from around the country to give a seminar, mostly to undergraduates, not only on the technical specifics of their field, but also on their personal life story, and how that story informed their career choice. After the seminar, the speaker sits down with a QBIC faculty member for a half-hour interview where he or she is able to go into more specifics about the themes from the seminar. The interview is videotaped in front of a live student-only audience in a film studio on campus. The recording is published on the series’ website (http://qbic.fiu. edu/confluence. In this article we discuss using the series to address issues of identity, and how our video blog can be used in other classrooms to achieve similar objectives for science

  2. Proceedings of Seminar on Emerging Environmental Issues in Pakistan

    The seminar on emerging environmental issues in Pakistan was held from December 5-7, 1998, in Islamabad, Pakistan. The nature and magnitude of environmental contamination, and who is exposed to it, depend not only on scientific and technological factors but also reflect economic, political, social and many other influences. In the process of creating social and economic benefits to society, industrial production generates hazardous waste and chemical contaminants that impact negatively on quality of life. The main emphases in this proceedings are on different type pollution and their impacts on humane life. (A.B.)

    of this study was to explore this further. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Four focus group interviews with five junior doctors were conducted. Three themes were discussed: the advantages of the seminars, the disadvantages of the seminars and the needs or wishes concerning both the seminars and education generally....... The interviews were transcribed, and a three-step content analysis was carried out in order to identify general aspects of value. RESULTS: Three general aspects were found: 1) the social aspect--being part of a community of like-minded peers, sharing frustrations and experiences and making comparisons with peers......, 2) the aspect of utility--whether the seminars offer any concrete and relevant tools to help manage complex situations in the clinic, 3) the aspect of recognition--the seminars offer a sense of being appreciated and taken seriously which is lacking in the clinic where junior doctors feel isolated...

  4. Effectiveness of modified seminars as a teaching-learning method in pharmacology

    Palappallil, Dhanya Sasidharan; Sushama, Jitha; Ramnath, Sai Nathan

    2016-01-01

    Context: Student-led seminars (SLS) are adopted as a teaching-learning (T-L) method in pharmacology. Previous studies assessing the feedback on T-L methods in pharmacology points out that the traditional seminars consistently received poor feedbacks as they were not favorite among the students. Aims: This study aimed to obtain feedback on traditional SLS, introduce modified SLS and compare the modified seminars with the traditional ones. Settings and Design: This was a prospective interventional study done for 2 months in medical undergraduates of fifth semester attending Pharmacology seminars at a Government Medical College in South India. Subjects and Methods: Structured questionnaire was used to elicit feedback from participants. The responses were coded on 5-point Likert scale. Modifications in seminar sessions such as role plays, quiz, tests, group discussion, and patient-oriented problem-solving exercises were introduced along with SLS. Statistical Analysis Used: The data were analyzed using SPSS version 16. The descriptive data were expressed using frequencies and percentages. Wilcoxon signed rank test, and Friedman tests were used to compare traditional with modified seminars. Results: The participants identified interaction as the most important component of a seminar. Majority opined that the teacher should summarize at the end of SLS. Student feedback shows that modified seminars created more interest, enthusiasm, and inspiration to learn the topic when compared to traditional SLS. They also increased peer coordination and group dynamics. Students opined that communication skills and teacher-student interactions were not improved with modified seminars. Conclusions: Interventions in the form of modified SLS may be adopted to break the monotony of traditional seminars through active participation, peer interaction, and teamwork.

  6. Activities of publicity and seminar in Nuclear Material Control Center

    In recent years, the issue of nuclear non-proliferation has gained more attention than ever after the discovery of nuclear weapon development in Iraq, possible nuclear development in North Korea, the questionable maintenance of nuclear weapons in ex-Soviet, and the actual testing of nuclear bombs in India and Pakistan. As a result, the scheme to strengthen the effectiveness and improve the efficiency of the IAEA safeguards system has been established and is about to come into effect. In Japan, on the other hand, the need to enhance the international confidence on peaceful use of nuclear materials for the establishment of nuclear fuel recycle, e.g. MOX fuel, is urgent. It is also necessary to strengthen and confirm the 'State's System of Accounting For and Control of Nuclear Material' for the same purpose. In order to promote further understanding of the importance and necessity of the nuclear material control, Nuclear Material Control Center has held seminars for the local governments in nuclear related sites. For the general public, various pamphlets and web site have been used to propagate its information. In this report, we will present the outline of our public relations and seminar presentation activities in Nuclear Material Control Center. (author)

  10. Le rôle politique des revues conservatrices aux Etats-Unis depuis les années 1980

    2004-09-01

    Full Text Available L’article vise à étudier, à travers l’exemple de la théorie de la « Fin de l’Histoire » de Fukuyama, en quoi la revue américaine The National Interest est, à l’instar d’autres revues conservatrices, un instrument médiatique crucial pour la diffusion de certains idéaux du Parti Républicain aux Etats-Unis depuis le milieu des années 1980. Il s’agit par là même de réfléchir aux conditions de production et de diffusion de cette théorie, dans un contexte géopolitique et intellectuel exceptionnel, celui de la fin de la guerre froide. L’évolution des liens entre intellectuels et pouvoir politique américains, avec pour enjeu, depuis le début des années 1980, la politique étrangère, sont au cœur de cette réflexion.El artículo intenta estudiar a través del ejemplo de la teoría del « Fin de la Historia » de Fukuyama, hasta que punto la revista americana The National Interest es, a semejanza de otras revistas conservadoras, un instrumento crucial para la difusión de algunos ideales del partido republicano en los estados Unidos desde mediados de los años ochenta. Se trata de reflexionar sobre las condiciones de producción y de difusión de esta teoría, en un contexto geopolítico e intelectual excepcional, el del final de la guerra fría. El centro de esta reflexión es la evolución de las relaciones entre los intelectuales y el poder político americano, teniendo como telón de fondo, la política exterior.The article aims at studying, through the example of Fukuyama’s theory of the « End of History », how the American journal The National Interest, as other conservative journals, has, since the mid 1980s, been a crucial media instrument for the dissemination of some ideals of the Republican Party. We have thus to think about the conditions of production and dissemination of this theory in an exceptional geopolitical and intellectual context – the end of the cold war.

  15. Proceedings of the Seminar 'Irradiation Technologies and the IRASM Facility'

    The seminar devoted to 'Irradiation Technologies and the IRASM Facility' aimed at debating the principal problems related to one of the most important project ever developed in Romania, at the Horia Hulubei National Institute of Physics and Nuclear Engineering, in collaboration with IAEA. IRASM (an acronym for Multiple Purpose Irradiation Facility) is using initially a 60 Co of 100 kCi irradiation source (to be replaced after an promotional stage by a 2 MCi Co source). It is designed to irradiate a materials volume of about 35,000 m3/year. Health, agriculture, food industry and materials industry are the most targeted customers. It will be used for sterilization of medical materials and pharmaceuticals products, peat and seed (and other agricultural products) decontamination and sterilization, experimental irradiation of food products, irradiation of composite plastics and other industrial products, etc. The seminar was a first meeting of Romanian specialists in radiation processing with potential users of these technologies as well as with decision making persons working with national governmental and regulation authorities. Twelve communications were presented as a basis for discussion. These were: 1. IRASM - a technical assistance IAEA project and the prospects for technological irradiation in Romania (Serban Dobrescu); 2. IRASM facility - goal, present stage, perspectives (Corneliu C. Ponta); 3. Nuclear safeguards and radioprotection at IRASM (Ioan Valentin Moise); 4. Nuclear safeguard policy for IRASM (Mariana Irimia, Gabriela Vladescu, Ion Cristian); 5. Technological dosimetry at IRASM (Rodica Macrin, Rodica Moraru, Nicolae Valcov); 6. Quality assurance in building and exploiting IRASM (Ioana Domsa); 7. Current status of irradiation technologies in IFIN-HH (Mitica Dragusin); 8. Chemical-pharmaceutical, cosmetic and medical product sterilization (Paul Adrian, Eleonora Gheorghiu); 9.

  16. Proceedings of 2008 KAERI/JAEA joint seminar on advanced irradiation and PIE technologies

    Under the Arrangement for Cooperation in the field of peaceful uses of Nuclear Energy between the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) and the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA), the 2008 KAERI-JAEA Joint Seminar on Advanced Irradiation and PIE (post-irradiation examination) Technologies has been held at KAERI in Daejeon, Korea, from November 5 to 7, 2008. This seminar was organized by the PIE and Radwaste Division, Research Reactor Engineering Division, and HANARO Management Division in KAERI. It was also the first time to hold the seminar under the agreement signed September 4, 2008. This triennial seminar is the sixth in series of bilateral exchange of irradiation technologies. Since the first joint seminar on Post Irradiation Examination Technology between JAERI and KAERI held at JAERI Oarai center, Japan in 1992, it has been a good model of international cooperation program between KAERI and JAEA in the field of neutron irradiation uses. At the fifth seminar in 2005, irradiation technology field was included to the joint seminar, moreover in this time it is expanded to the research reactor management field for covering whole areas of irradiation using in research reactors. The seminar was divided into three technical sessions; the sessions addressed the general topics of 'research reactor management', 'advanced irradiation technology' and 'post-irradiation examination technology'. Total 46 presentations were made, and active information exchange was done among participants. This proceeding is containing the papers or manuscripts presented in the 2008 KAERI-JAEA Joint Seminar on Advanced Irradiation and PIE Technologies. The 46 of the presented papers indexed individually. (J.P.N.)

  17. A Novel Format for Seminar during the Senior Year of the College Chemistry Curriculum

    Bowyer, Walter J.; Kaydos, Janet A.

    1997-02-01

    A new format for the "senior seminar" is described. Rather than having students and guest speakers present seminars on a miscellany of topics, we find it productive to organize presentations and written papers around a common topic. In addition, the first "presentation" given by each student is actually a student-led discussion. All students in the seminar are required to read the paper being discussed. In the second term, each student gives a formal presentation based upon more extensive literature research. These changes result in more active participation by all students, a continuous reinforcement of the selected topic, and much more lively discussions than we have had in the past.

  18. 13th Czechoslovak seminar on plasma physics and technology

    Of the 32 papers presented at the 13th Czechoslovak Seminar on Plasma Physics and Technology, 20 papers deal with low-temperature plasma and its applications, e.g., in thin film production, plasma chemistry and electric engineering, and with various methods of low-temperature plasma diagnostics. The investigation of hot plasma in tokamaks and stellarators is the topic of 5 papers; the latest experimental results achieved in the Czechoslovak tokamak Castor and the Soviet devices Tuman-2A, FT-1 and L-2 are reported. Five papers are devoted to high-power pulse technology applications, represented by plasma heating studies with Czechoslovak electron accelerator REBEX, the Polish plasma focus experiment PF-20, and high-current accelerators of negative ions developed in the USSR. In the only two theoretical papers, strong Langmuir turbulence and the Alfven current drive are studied. (J.U.)

  19. Seminar on present and future Spanish Legislation on nuclear energy

    The Proceedings of the Seminar contain the papers presented and the conclusions of each Session. The topics cover Spanish nuclear legislation including the licensing of nuclear power plants and control, analysed in the context of legislation in other fields and the new requirements since Spain joined the European Communities. Other papers deal with the origin and evolution of Spanish nuclear law, the competent international organizations and the nuclear third party liability regime set in place by the international conventions in that field. Also discussed are the national regulations on radioactive waste management and the competent authorities. Finally, a revision of the Spanish Nuclear Energy Act is considered necessary in the light of developments since its inception

    2004-01-01

    @@ Here comes 2004, the 35th session of the World Standards Day. The theme of this session is"Standards Connect the World", which is precisely a good turning point not only for the domestic economy to connect rails gradually with international, but also for national government to consummate and strengthen the standardization management system, to advance standardization work, and to raise the standardization level, after China's entrance into the World Trade Organization. Therefore, when the 35th session of the World Standards Day is arriving, sponsored by the SAC (Standardization Administration of China) and organized by CAS (China Association for Standardization), China will hold a seminar on October 14 in the Great Hall of the People.

  1. Pre-employment job orientation seminar - after two years

    Formerly, applicants for the Radiation Monitor job were primarily individuals with 4-yr degrees in the sciences or engineering, because of upgraded education requirements. Reynolds found, however, that they lost a very high percentage of such hirees within 4 months after training and going into the field - since they had felt they were hired for a white collar job. Therefore, they instituted the Pre-Employment Job Training Seminar for all applicants - a 40-minute slide presentation showing the Nevada Test Site Terrain; Radiation Monitor job locations such as tunnels, drill rigs, and a decontamination facility; and Radiation Monitors active in their job functions. In other words the earthy side of the job is depicted. Applicants still interested in the job after initial orientation stay for a 3-hour examination. The author expects future hiring at the technician level, with job requirements a high school diploma and science and math skills necessary for good job performance

  2. First international seminar on farming of invertebrates and other minillvestock

    Cicogna, M.

    1992-01-01

    Full Text Available At this Seminar, held in the Philippines, minilivestock was defined as small-animal species, used as food, feed or source of revenue in given parts of the world, usually ignored by scientists trainedin industrialized countries, but very suitable and promising for small producers. The biology and use of tropical land and water snails and of manureworms, as well as different aspects of insect farming and use of insects for sericulture, food, feed or for collectors, were discussed. Sociological and extension problems connected with rural development were considered. Recent experiences of butterfly farming, tropical snail farming, use of termites and the raising of cricetoma orguinea pig for meat production were also reported. Conclusions and recommendations were drafted concerning terminology, sociological aspects, animal requirements and research, education and training needs. Minilivestock appears as a challenging new branch of animal production that offers a considerable potential for rural development, but calls for further experimental work for the optimization of production systems.

  3. CSNI/NEA Rasplav seminar 2000. Summary and conclusions

    various boundary conditions were investigated. The work involved a combination of integral and separate effect tests including molten-salt tests to investigate non-eutectic mixtures and the effects of stratification, extension of the material property database to allow interpretation and modelling of the experimental data. The CSNI decided to hold a seminar where the major outcome of the RASPLAV Project could be presented and discussed also in the context of other experienced activities on Severe Accidents. The objectives of the seminar are: - to review the experimental results of the RASPLAV Project; - to exchange information on complementary research; - to discuss the progress made on understanding severe accident progression; - to discuss the applicability to nuclear power plants and use of the results. The Seminar was intended to provide an in-depth review of the RASPLAV Project in terms of the technical capabilities, results and analyses produced during the project execution. The application of the results and their significance for power plant applications were addressed. Relevant results of the complementary research carried out at various laboratories were also presented. The seminar consisted of five sessions organised as follows: - Opening and overview; - Experimental results; - Theoretical Analyses; - Application and complementary research; - Conclusion

    2006-12-01

    How does one engage first year students in a case-based seminar on ethics and science, and more importantly, how does one foster critical thinking in such a course? Most educators will agree that one of the most important goals of any course is to improve our students’ critical thinking skills. To get some baseline data on the critical thinking skills the students bring into the university as well as their growth through the semester, we adapted the rubric developed by the Washington State University Critical Thinking Project1 and used it to score papers written by students in the Ethics in Science course the first time it was taught. Based on those data, new assignments were written for the second iteration of the course. Data from both the first and second iterations will be presented. 1www.wsuctproject.wsu.edu

  11. JSPS-CAS Core University Program seminar. Proceedings of Japan-China joint seminar on atomic and molecular processes in plasma

    As one of the activities of JSPS-CAS Core University Program, Japan-China Joint Seminar on Atomic and Molecular Processes in Plasma was held on October 26 - 31, 2009 in Xi'an, China. The total number of the officially registered participants was 54, in which 18 from Japan, 35 from China, and 1 from USA. And this seminar is an extension of the last two seminars that were held on March 6 - 11, 2004 in Lanzhou, China, and on October 6 - 12, 2007 in Dunhuang, China. In the nuclear fusion plasma, there are quite a variety of atomic processes such as ionization, excitation, radiative recombination, non-radiative recombination (di-electronic recombination, collisional electron transfer), cascade radiation, and cascade Auger decay over the wide range of plasma temperature. The knowledge of those processes is indispensable for the evaluation and improvement of the plasma properties. Because of the diversity of the subject, it is desirable to investigate them by international collaboration groups. The present seminar may contribute to realize the above stated aim; especially it has given an opportunity for the collaborative workers to illustrate their achievements. This seminar summarizes the collaborative researches for the last decade and propose the issues for the future prospect. The 30 of the presented papers are indexed individually. (J.P.N.)

  12. Temporal obesity trends in patients undergoing transthoracic echocardiography 2002-2006.

    Rao, Seshu C; Kusnetzky, Lisa L; Lan, Xiao; Main, Michael L

    2009-03-01

    In a recent data brief, the National Center for Health Statistics reported that obesity prevalence has plateaued in recent years, with no increase in obesity from 2003 to 2006. We have subjectively observed a marked increase in clinically severe obesity over this same period in patients presenting to our echocardiographic laboratory. The aim of this study was to determine temporal trends in obesity prevalence in patients presenting for transthoracic echocardiographic studies. A retrospective database analysis was performed using the Cardiovascular Consultants (Kansas City, Missouri) database (ProSolv Cardiovascular, Indianapolis, Indiana). The height and weight of patients who underwent transthoracic echocardiography in 2002 (n = 10,804) and 2006 (n = 17,556) were obtained. Body mass index was calculated as weight/height squared. Patients were grouped into 1 of 6 body mass index categories (underweight, normal weight, overweight, obese, morbidly obese, or super obese). Continuous variables were compared using Student's t test, and categorical variables were compared using chi-square test. In the 2 years, approximately (1/3) of patients were normal weight and (1/3) of patients were overweight. Obesity prevalence increased significantly (by nearly 8%) over the study period, with 28.1% of patients in the obese category by 2006. Clinically severe obesity (morbidly obese and super obese) increased dramatically from 2002 to 2006 (16%, p <0.008, and 41.7%, p <0.001, increases, respectively). In conclusion, clinically severe obesity has markedly increased in our midwestern echocardiographic laboratory in the period from 2002 to 2006. PMID:19231334

  15. International wind energy development. World market update 2001. Forecast 2002-2006

    In the year 2001, the wind power development took another major step forward. Installed capacity set a new record with the addition of 6,824 MW of new generating capacity. This is 2,329 MW more than the record set in year 2000. Growth in new capacity is up from 15% in year 2000 to 52% in 2001. This confirmed that the trend of wind energy being the preferred technology over other technologies for new generating capacity is continuing. Europe is the leading region for wind power. Of the new capacity added in 2001, 4,527 MW was installed in Europe. Germany once more shows this country's potential as the single most active market with the installation of 2,627 MW in new capacity, nearly 1,000 MW more than in the previous year. Germany consolidated its position as the world's leading developer of wind energy. The market in the US is once again the second largest wind energy market ahead of Spain. The expiration of the PTC at the end of the year 2001 gave some rush in the installation at the end of the year. The Danish market is on a deroute and lost pace completely in a changed political climate which means that the development of windpower is slowing down. Denmark has a very high penetration of windpower. On the supplier side Vestas Wind Systems A/S maintained its position as being the world's largest manufacturer of wind turbines. Vestas Wind Systems is now followed by Enercon GmbH. Without counting the US market figures Vestas Wind Systems A/S and Enercon has become the very closed in terms of sold MW. In the 3rd place is the Danish company NEG Micon A/S. Newcomers in the Top Ten list are Mitsubishi (JP) and REpower (GE). The most significant technological trend in the market is the continuing upscaling of machines. From year 2001 the average size of WTGs is 915 kW (in 2000: 800kW). In the very near future there will be erected wind turbines mainly dedicated for the upcoming offshore market of 4.5-5.0 MW. On Offshore there is only 10 MW installed during the year 2001. The Yttre Steengrund project is in Sweden and is consisting of 5 NEG Micon turbines each of 2 MW. On the direct drive concept one more machine has been added to the Enercon and Lagerweys and that is the Spanish Factory Torres S.A. Blade manufacturing undergoes changes. New production methods and new mixed composites are being used in the process. The big challenge is to reduce weights and maintain strength in the upscaling to blade length of more than 40 meters. The special topic (Q) in this World Market Update focus on the Operation and Maintenance cost for the wind turbines. (au)

  16. A quantitative analysis of volcanic unrest: Mt. Spurr Alaska, 2002-2006

    Mercier, David; Lowell, Robert P.

    2016-09-01

    The volcano unrest event at Mt. Spurr, Alaska, which occurred between 2002 and 2006, was characterized by increased seismicity and heat transfer that resulted in ice melting at the summit, increased CO2 transport, and debris flows; but it did not result in a magmatic eruption. We argue that rupturing of the brittle-ductile barrier at a depth of approximately 5 km below sea level, as suggested by the observed seismicity, coupled with the release of magmatic volatiles, and diffusion of the resulting pressure pulse through the edifice likely enhanced heat transfer from the pre-existing hydrothermal system beneath the summit. The estimated heat output of ≈ 32 MW and thermal energy release of ≈ 2.1 × 1015 J that derived from the volume of ice melted over the duration of the unrest event shows that heat transport by CO2 alone was not sufficient to generate the observed thermal effects. Assuming the observed heat output represents a ≈ 10% perturbation on the background heat output, a similar increase in the Rayleigh number in a convecting liquid-dominated reservoir above a background value ~ 100 times critical would produce the observed heat output. This result yields a permeability ranging between 2 × 10- 14 and 10- 13 m2, depending on the thickness and temperature difference assumed. The enhanced heat flux from the liquid reservoir to the overlying vapor-dominated regime, or movement of liquid into the two-phase regime as a result of the pressure drive associated with the rupture of the brittle-ductile barrier, could also yield the observed heat output.

  18. The Chrysalis Opens? Photometry from the Eta Carinae HST Treasury Project, 2002-2006

    Martin, J C; Koppelman, M D; Davidson, Kris

    2006-01-01

    During the past decade Eta Car has brightened markedly, possibly indicating a change of state. Here we summarize photometry gathered by the Hubble Space Telescope as part of the HST Treasury Project on this object. Our data include STIS/CCD acquisition images, ACS/HRC images in four filters, and synthetic photometry in flux-calibrated STIS spectra. The HST's spatial resolution allows us to examine the central star separate from the bright circumstellar ejecta. Its apparent brightness continued to increase briskly during 2002--06, especially after the mid-2003 spectroscopic event. If this trend continues, the central star will soon become brighter than its ejecta, quite different from the state that existed only a few years ago. One precedent may be the rapid change observed in 1938--1953. We conjecture that the star's mass-loss rate has been decreasing throughout the past century.

    In this paper, we estimate the effect of food prices on food insecurity for SNAP recipients using data from the Current Population Survey and the recently published Quarterly Food At Home Price Database. We form a local food price index based on amounts of food for a household of four as established by the Thrifty Food Plan. We use an econometric model that accounts for the endogeneity of SNAP receipt to food insecurity and for household-level unobservables. We find that the average effect of...

  4. Proceedings of the Sixth Seminar on Computation in Nuclear Science and Technology

    National Atomic Energy Agency (BATAN) had held the Sixth Seminar on Computation in Nuclear Science and Technology on January 16-17, 1996. The seminar is an event for information exchange among interest society in computation, modeling, and simulation. Similar as previous seminar in the past year, there were also non-BATAN and university-bound presenters and participants whose interest are in the field of science and technology. Examining the papers presented in this seminar, it shows that beside digging the so called classical computation methods, some papers brought relatively new topics like the determination and influence of chaos, neural network method, and expert system. Judging from the variety of the topics, one can conclude that interests in computation and its application are growing stronger in Indonesia

  15. Evaluation of the effectiveness of seminar as an educational tool among the medical post graduate students

    Kasi Babu A.

    2016-03-01

    Results: The scores for most of the items of a twenty point questionnaire were above three indicating the learning from seminar is satisfactory. Seminar methods of teaching-learning, in contrast to the traditional didactic class room lecture method, is more effective way of learning, which is relevant to self-development and is also interactive. This method provokes discussions and debates which help post graduate students to voice their opinion and clear their doubts. Conclusions: Many of the post graduate students feel that this technique of seminar programme is useful amidst some suggestions to improve quality. Thus the post graduate seminar method is a teaching-learning method that covers the three major domains of teaching i.e., cognitive, affective and psychomotor skills and is thus effective and well -accepted among the post graduate students.

When Rolf Heuer, CERN Director-General, appeared in the first-floor corridor of the Main Building, at 7.15 a.m. on Wednesday 4 July, he was met with applause from a horde of Cernois. In that moment, there was no doubt: the day would be exceptional. And it was. For us at CERN more than any other. The proof? Hear it straight from the horse's mouth...   "One might have thought that being far from the Main Auditorium last Wednesday the atmosphere would be less electrified but actually this was not true: when the seminar started, sacred silence was kept, interrupted only by warm and loud applauses, big smiles, cheerful whistling, hand shaking… one could say there was really ‘something’ in the air. A mixture of scientific enthusiasm, joy, curiosity and big amounts of rocking excitement… F...

  19. The 36. Red Deer Seminar - still going strong

    Anon.

    1996-09-01

    Several issues dominated the 36th Red Deer Seminar of the propane industry, among them changes to the Alberta fuel tax collection system, propane and automobile emissions and industry self-management. With regard to changes to the Alberta fuel tax collection system, details were provided on how the system, coming into effect on January 1, 1997, will impact on producers, distributors and retailers. In terms of automobile emissions, it was said that propane has lagged behind gasoline in technological development, hence propane no longer has advantages in emissions. It was noted, however, that with equivalent technology propane can still meet ultra-low emission standards. Regarding industry self-management, it was stressed that self-management did not mean deregulation since government retains policy, regulation and standard setting. It means a new partnership arrangement in which industry delivers services formerly provided by government. In this spirit of cooperation, it was announced that effective September 1996, administration of the auto propane vehicle conversion program will be transferred to the PGAC under the name of Alberta Propane Vehicle Administration Organization. 3 figs.

    1997-12-31

    Hydrogeology research has been very active in both Russia and the US because of the concerns for migration of radioactive and chemical contaminants in soils and geologic formations, as well as for water problems related to mining and other industrial operations. Russian hydrogeologists have developed various analysis and field testing techniques, sometimes in parallel with US counterparts. These Proceedings come out of a Seminar held to bring together a small group (about 15) of active Russian researchers in geologic flow and transport associated with the disposal of radioactive and chemical wastes either on the soils or through deep injection wells, with a corresponding group (about 25) of American hydrogeologists. The meeting was intentionally kept small to enable informal, detailed and in-depth discussions on hydrogeological issues of common interest. Out of this interaction, the authors hope that, firstly, they will have learned from each other and secondly, that research collaborations will be established where there is the opportunity. This proceedings presents the summaries and viewgraphs from the presentations. What cannot be conveyed here is the warm and cooperative atmosphere of these interactions, both inside and outside the formal sessions, which may well lead to future collaborations.

  3. Advancing Successful Physics Majors - The Physics First Year Seminar Experience

    Deibel, Jason; Petkie, Douglas

    In 2012, the Wright State University physics curriculum introduced a new year-long seminar course required for all new physics majors. The goal of this course is to improve student retention and success via building a community of physics majors and provide them with the skills, mindset, and advising necessary to successfully complete a degree and transition to the next part of their careers. This new course sequence assembles a new cohort of majors annually. To prepare each cohort, students engage in a variety of activities that span from student success skills to more specific physics content while building an entrepreneurial mindset. Students participate in activities including study skills, career night, course planning, campus services, and a department social function. More importantly, students gain exposure to programming, literature searches, data analysis, technical writing, elevator pitches, and experimental design via hands-on projects. This includes the students proposing, designing, and conducting their own experiments. Preliminary evidence indicates increased retention, student success, and an enhanced sense of community among physics undergraduate students, The overall number of majors and students eventually completing their physics degrees has nearly tripled.

Out of this interaction, the authors hope that, firstly, they will have learned from each other and secondly, that research collaborations will be established where there is the opportunity. This proceedings presents the summaries and viewgraphs from the presentations. What cannot be conveyed here is the warm and cooperative atmosphere of these interactions, both inside and outside the formal sessions, which may well lead to future collaborations

  7. Proceedings of the international seminar on atomic processes in plasmas

    The International Seminar on Atomic Processes in Plasmas (ISAPP), a satellite meeting to the ICPEAC was held July 28-29 at the National Institute for Fusion Science in Toki, Gifu, Japan. About 110 scientists attended the ISAPP meeting and discussed atomic processes and atomic data required for fusion research. This Proceedings book includes the papers of the talks, posters and panel discussion given at the meeting. The invited talks described the super configuration array method for complex spectra, near-LTE atomic kinetics, R-matrix calculations, the binary-encounter dipole model for electron-impact ionization of molecules, other calculations of molecular processes, the ADAS project and the NIFS atomic data-base, and a survey of the role of molecular processes in divertor plasmas. On the experimental side crossed-beam ion-ion collision-experiments for charge transfer, and storage-ring and EBIT measurements of ionization, excitation and dielectronic recombination cross-sections were presented, and atomic processes important for x-ray laser experiments and x-ray spectroscopy of astrophysical plasmas were described. The new method of plasma polarization spectroscopy was outlined. There was also a spectroscopic study of particle transport in JT-60U, new results for detached plasmas, and a sketch of the first hot plasma experiments with the Large Helical Device recently completed at NIFS. The 63 of the presented papers are indexed individually. (J.P.N.)

  9. JSPS-CAS core university program seminar. Proceedings of Japan-China joint seminar on atomic and molecular processes in plasma

    As one of the activities of JSPS-CAS Core University Program, Japan-China Joint Seminar on Atomic and Molecular Processes in Plasma was held on October 8 - 12, 2007 in Dunhuang, China. The total number of the officially registered participants was 41, in which 12 from Japan, 25 from China, and 4 from EU. And this seminar is an extension of the last seminar that was held on March 6 - 11, 2004 in Lanzhou, China. In the nuclear fusion plasma, there are quite a variety of atomic processes such as ionization, excitation, radiative recombination, non-radiative recombination (di-electronic recombination, collisional electron transfer), cascade radiation, and cascade Auger decay over the wide range of plasma temperature. The knowledge of such processes is indispensable for the evaluation and improvement of the plasma properties, which is desirable to be investigated by international collaboration groups. The present seminar constitutes one of such activities to realize the above stated aim; especially it has given an opportunity for the collaborative workers to illustrate their achievements. The 32 of the presented papers are indexed individually. (J.P.N.)

    To provide an inspiring working environment for young students and scientists, it is important that they at an early stage can take part in a network of scientists working in their fields of interest. However, within each of the five Nordic countries the network of people involved in the fields of radiophysics, radiochemistry, radioecology, radiation protection and other related fields is rather small. Educational networking is a key factor in keeping young researchers motivated to continue working within these fields, and to recruit new students. For that reason the first YoungRad-seminar was held in Helsinki 14-15 December 2006. 43 young participants including MSc and PhD students at universities, researchers at different institutes and personnel from Nordic authorities took part in the seminar. All Nordic countries except Iceland were represented. The seminar was divided into four sessions including oral and poster presentations. In addition two senior researchers were invited to speak about Nordic radioecology and NKS. This report contains the abstracts and presentations made at the seminar. (au)

    In Prussia, who has not full statehood, the criminal law is used as a means to show the royal authority to the eyes of the subjects. Frederick William I, the "Soldier-King" thus will give this role to a henceforth unified judicial system: justify his absolute power. Inspiration then comes from France, and as regards the right from Jean Domat. Dans une Prusse qui n'a pas encore un plein statut d'Etat, le droit criminel se trouve employé comme un moyen de faire apparaître l'autorité royale a...

  15. SEMINARS ON BIOCHEMISTRY: IS AN EFFECTIVE METHODOLOGY IN THE PROCESS LEARNING/TEACHING?

    M.S. Vasconcelos

    2007-05-01

    Full Text Available Introduction in Biochemistry is a discipline held by the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at UFC. It is offered to the students of the Sciences Centers. The majority of the classes employs as pedagogical tools,theoretical lectures and problem solving activities. To avoid that the learning process is restricted to memorizing, it was elaborated a learning project aiming a better comprehension of the explored content. The methodology included seminars given by the students on subjects analyzed on previous classes.These students were divided in two groups of ten members and each group was assigned to topics of carbohydrates metabolism with the approach on applied Biochemistry. After presentations, a survey was applied revealing that students approved this methodology. The reason given was a better perception of fundamental Biochemistry and its application to their professional field. The evaluation of this methodology was also done based on the grades and it was as follows: in the first evaluation before the seminars, the average score was 4.7 and after, in the second evaluation involving the seminars, the average increased to 7.18. The third and last evaluation without seminars, it was observed a reduction of the average score to 5.63. These results suggest that seminars on Biochemistry were an effective pedagogical methodology in the process of learning/teaching.

    Adolfo León Atehortúa Cruz

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available El ascenso paulatino de los militares en la política, luego del 9 de abril de 1948, llevó finalmente al poder a Gustavo Rojas Pinilla en 1953. El golpe de estado fue anunciado, consentido y propiciado por parte de la élite civil. No obstante, una vez en el poder, Rojas empezó a alejarse de la dirigencia tradicional y de los partidos, y convirtió a su gobierno en una dictadura de carácter más personal que incluso militar. Su propósito no resistió la arremetida de la élite. Gómez y Lleras lideraron el pacto que finalmente condujo a la caída de Rojas, en 1957, sin una resignación total por parte de los militares que, fraccionados por momentos, intentaron proseguir en el poder o restaurar a Rojas. El presente artículo describe, interroga y analiza estos hechos bajo la óptica del poder de los militaresThe rising of army men into politics, after April the 9th, 1948, finally gave the power to Gustavo Rojas Pinilla, in 1953. The coup d'etat was announced, consented and favored on the part of the civil elite. Nevertheless, once in power, Rojas moved away from the traditional leadership and parties, and turned his government into a dictatorship of more personal character, different even from military style. His purpose did not resist the elite´s attacks. Gómez and Lleras headed the pact that finally concluded in Rojas' fall, in 1957. This came without the total resignation on the part of the army men who, sometimes divided, tried to continue in power or restore Rojas. The present paper describes questions and analyzes those facts under the military point of view

    Eikelmann, I.M.H.; Selnaes, OE.G. (eds.) (Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority (Norway))

    2009-11-15

    Changes in the international security environment have lead to an increased attention towards the need to revise various threat assessments in the Nordic countries. Together with recent events such as incidents at Nordic nuclear power plants, orphan sources and accidents involving nuclear powered vessels, this has given a good opportunity for an exchange of information and opinions. The NKS-B NordThreat seminar took place at Sem gjestegaard in Asker outside Oslo, Norway on 30 - 31 October 2008. Main topics in the seminar were: 1) National threat assessments 2) Potential hazards 3) Experience from previous incidents 4) Public perception of nuclear and radiological threats and information challenges 5) Challenges for future preparedness. There were about 40 participants at the seminar. These were mainly members of the NKS organisations, invited speakers and representatives from various Norwegian emergency preparedness organisations.

  6. SEMINAR ABOUT SERIOUS GAMES AND VIRTUAL WORLDS: An Experience of International Collaboration And Reflection

    Wolfram LAASER

    2011-08-01

    Full Text Available The educational possibilities of ICT, dizzying and exponentially growing every day, offer multiple alternatives of mediation for teaching, learning and communication.Thus, the inclusion of video games and virtual worlds into educational context represents a qualitative leap that claims to significantly boost ways of communication and knowledge representation of the scenarios involved. Aware of this reality, in the framework of the Master of Technology Enhanced Learning at the National University of Cordoba, Argentina, a virtual seminar was offered to students to address the issue on the basis of invited lectures of worldwide recognized experts. The format chosen for the seminar allowed the treatment of subjects not only through reading assignments and web quests to be discussed collaboratively but also included the state of the art experience of developers working in the field. The paper describes didactic design and technical solutions of the seminar format.

  7. Senior Seminar Focusing on Societal Issues Related to Chemistry and Biochemistry

    White, Harold B., III; Johnston, Murray V.; Panar, Manuel

    2000-12-01

    The lack of a clearly defined content or structure provided the opportunity to transform a one-credit, pass-fail senior seminar course into a meaningful capstone experience for chemistry and biochemistry majors. In addition to individual and class exercises associated with employment, graduate school, communication skills, and professional ethics, small groups of students worked together to create informative Web sites that took positions on important societal issues related to chemistry. Each group presented a seminar and responded to questions from their peers and two or more unannounced visitors, "wild cards" who often had expertise in the seminar topic. Throughout the course, the instructors placed particular emphasis on developing students' ability to work cooperatively, locate and evaluate information, make informed judgments based on available information, and logically develop and defend their positions. Input from a retired industrial chemist helped define these skill elements.

  15. GammaSem Proceedings. A Nordic seminar for users of gamma spectrometry

    The project GammaSem was proposed to the NKS in 2008. The aim of the project was to arrange two seminars for users of gamma spectrometry, in 2009 and 2010. The seminars were meant to provide a forum for discussions and sharing of information on practical issues concerning gamma spectrometry and initiate a network of gamma spectrometry users in the Nordic countries. Such a Nordic network should strengthen the collaboration between laboratories and improve all participants' competence in practical gamma spectrometry. Both seminars' focus was practical challenges met by the users themselves, rather than theoretical matters. Scientists and users of gamma spectrometry from all five Nordic countries were invited to the seminar, as well as scientist from the Baltic countries. A total of 65 people signed up for GammaSem 2010; representing 30 different universities, commercial companies, research institutes and authorities. The working group concept as presented at last year's GammaSem, has not worked out as intended. The reason for this is probably because most of the laboratories that signed up to join the working groups, signed up because they wanted to learn more about the different subjects. In combination with the fact that no funding was made available for the working groups, it was difficult to establish goals on what to achieve. None of the working groups applied for funding from the NKS (or elsewhere) to establish separate projects. There is a big need for more cooperation and for training within the field of gamma spectrometry. This fact has been proved through these two seminars, both by the many different topics that have been discussed, but also by the huge interest for participating in the suggested series of workshop. The GammaSem seminars have thus provided a much welcomed starting point for a broader Nordic collaboration. (Author)
