  2. Mihail Sebastian and his Danubian Loneliness

    2014-08-01

    Full Text Available This paper aims at approaching the concept of loneliness with Mihail Sebastian, which is to be found everywhere in his work (and life as well. The Romanian - Jewish writer from the Danube always suffered from a terrible loneliness, this being the symptom of his fear of life, in psychoanalytical terms. According to Thomas Mann, Wilhelm Schlegel, Victor Hugo and others, writing (and creation, generally speaking brings loneliness, being considered a narcissistic act. Therefore, it can be proved that the isolation imposed by the anti-Semitic society upon the writer from the Danube, peopleřs aggressiveness, the lack of true friendship and love created the feelings of guilt and tragic. Sebastian projected these feelings upon his characters; thus, analyzing his entire work, we come to the conclusion that these individuals are the metaphorical expression of the writer himself. They try to fight against their isolation and inner conflicts, but it is in vain, as they finally choose to run away towards their loneliness, which becomes their escape and refuge. It seems that, both for Sebastian and his characters, life is something they dream of, but cannot have.

    Full Text Available Mihail Manoilescu is part of the series of those economists criticized in different ways, from the exaggeratedly appreciatively reviews to those that do not recognize any of his merits. The success of an analysis to place him where he rightfully belongs is related to taking into consideration a criterion –that of historical time in which Mihail Manoilescu formed himself as a state man and a science man. Only like this, only when thinking about the inter-war period, of great creative effervescence, of real renaissance for Romania, of affirmation and consolidation of the economy and of the Romanian state, of his imposing in the world economy, we can understand better the logic of his starting premises and of his judgments he based his theory on.

  9. The Danubian Eros and Thanatos in Mihail Sebastian’s Work

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alina Beatrice Chesca

    2013-08-01

    Full Text Available The present paper approaches two psychoanalytical concepts – the EROS and the THANATOS – which are extremely complex and, at the same time, fascinating due to their implications and the way they relate to the biography and work of Mihail Sebastian – the writer from the Danube. Art and biography meet in this danubian writer’s work, who tried to fight against his traumas and to heal himself through writing. The Eros and the Thanatos are omnipresent in the fiction of Sebastian’s obsessions and, when he faced destruction at an objective level, this fight resulted in anxiety and anguish. Along one’s life, there are two types of anxiety: the fear of life and the fear of death. The main theme of Sebastian’s work is that the human universe proves its strength only by suffering and that human beings can reach the ultimate dignity through their ability to endure. However, the instinct of death – the Thanatos – is always connected to the instinct of life – the Eros. We do not intend to reduce the latter one to the idea of love or passion, but we will interpret it in a broader sense – that of life, of creative energy, of light. Sebastian himself said: ”Life starts in darkness. There is a night for every day, there is a shadow for every light”.

    Many of the cultural heritages in the world have been totally or partly destroyed by natural events and human activities such as earthquake, flood and fire until the present day. Cultural heritages are legacy for us as well; it is also a fiduciary for next generation. To deliver this fiduciary to the future generations, cultural heritages have to be protected and registered. There are different methods for applying this registry but Photogrammetry is the most accurate and rapid method. Photogrammetry enables us to registry cultural heritages and generating 3D photo-realistic models. Nowadays, 3D models are being used in various fields such as education and tourism. In registration of complex and high construction by Photogrammetry, there are some problems in data acquisition and processing. Especially for high construction's photographs, some additional equipment is required such as balloon and lifter. In recent years The Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) are commonly started to be used in different fields for different goals. In Photogrammetry, The UAVs are being used for particularly data acquisition. It is not always easy to capture data due to the situation of historical places and their neighbourhood. The use of UAVs for documentation of cultural heritage will make an important contribution. The main goals of this study are to survey cultural heritages by Photogrammetry and to investigate the potential of UAVs in 3D modelling. In this purpose we surveyed Gedik Ahmet Pasha Mosque photogrammetricly by UAV and will produce photorealistic 3D model. Gedik Ahmet Pasha, The Grand Vizier of Fatih Sultan Mehmet, has been in Afyonkarahisar during the campaign to Karaman between the years of 1472-1473.

  18. ADAPTATION DEBATE, AHMET VEFİK PAŞA AND ZORAKİ TABİB SAMPLE / ADAPTASYON MESELESİ, AHMET VEFİK PAŞA VE ZORAKİ TABİB ÖRNEĞİ

    Dr. Bayram YILDIZ

    2007-08-01

    Full Text Available Adaptation, an item of theatre in Turkish literature beginning with Tanzimat, has been opposed since it would have negative effects on development of national theatre and on Turkish society structure. On the other hand adaptation was supported as it would benefit development of modern theatre. Though the common belief was against adaptation, adaptations of Ahmet Vefik Pasa from Moliere have found acceptance. This acceptance might be due to his preference of comedy and of its best performer in world literature, Moliere, and adaptation of plays consistent with Turkish society structure and moral virtues as in the case of Zoraki Tabip.

  19. Muslim Selbstverständnis: Ahmet Davutoğlu Answers Husserl’s Crisis of European Sciences

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    SCOTT MORRISON

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available In formulating his understanding of Islamic history, thought and politics, the Turkish Muslim thinker Ahmet Davutoğlu adopts the German philosopher Edmund Husserl’s formulation of phenomenology – or, philosophy of consciousness. Both Husserl and Davutoğlu perceive a crisis in humanity and identify its causes in scientism and logical positivism, against which they develop their respective phenomenological alternatives. This article places in parallel Husserl’s stylised history of Western thought and Weltanschauung method with that of Davutoğlu’s Muslim worldview, in order to illuminate the latter’s putatively comprehensive interpretation of Islam, diagnosis of the ills of secularism, modernisation, and crisis of values he finds in Muslim societies; and his prescribed treatment for those ills: the privileging of ontology over epistemology, and the full unfolding of core theological concepts of revelation, monotheism, and prophecy. Davutoğlu seeks to reconcile tensions and disputes within Islamic intellectual traditions concerning the nature of God and God’s attributes, and the tension between mysticism and rationalism, and the historical and the atemporal. In summary, Davutoğlu’s intervention in Islamic traditions is interesting in the effort it makes to appropriate elements of both Husserl and GWF Hegel for the purpose of reconciling a phenomenological reading of Islam with established Islamic authorities and commitments.

    Full Text Available Ahmet Vefik Pahsa perhaps with a technique to create the beginning of modern translations of the language has earned Moliére’s works to our language. He has adapted some drama of Moliére and translated some of them samely. Thus, the adaptations he had earned to Turkish, were structured suitable for Turkish culture and traditions. The author has synthesized the culturel values of us with the some values of French culture in a line of universal values. He had accomplished to our society which accustomed to traditional theatrical presentations, make laugh and think at the same time with French comedy. By taking the example of this attitude of Vefik Pasha be adapted to today. Text, in recent years, are not subject to any criteria when foreign language translation of literary works. Thus, the parts that has destructed on our culture and psychology of youth can be transferred to Turkish when transferring with art. But literary translation is an art work. Moreover, a translator to be aware of to the cultural values and must be a good educators. However, the path to follow Vefik Pasha’s literary works in translation, can be offered as a solution to the translation problems. He has combined the Turkish - French national values in the common denominator making cultural synthesis in the adaptation transferred to our language from French.

    Full Text Available Home and Nest images are commonly used images in poetry. Home is a shelter within the poet feels himself safe and secure. Image of nature in Ahmet Hasim’s poems, has been the most focused subjects on. Furthermore, assessments have been made on the poet's pessimism and desire that escape to an imaginary world from the real world. But, It hasn’t been dwelled enough on subject why Haşim escape from the real world to an imaginary world. Because, imaginary world that was created in Haşim’s poems, is richer than the real world. It is alsa a remarkable issue, the need of Haşim for a home and a nest or a shelter in nature. Haşim is more peaceful in a narrower space, inside the home. We can see this situation in poet’s poem called "Evim". Furthermore Hashim described a larger shelter in his poem called "O Belde”. “O Belde” is a part of nature and a nook in nature. Therefore, just like abird's nest, it has been made with the poet's feelings, his heart. Actuallyit is not important to be real or not for poet. Because in fact the poetknows the place that described, is mind’s shelter. It is the poet’s mindand dream, who wants to escape from the real world. His mind wants toescape from the real world, Because the real world is a place that ispessimistic and unsafe. There is plenty of "movement" and plenty oflight. This plenty of movement and light has scared the poet. He canfind the world that is less bright, more silent, more and more intimatewith nature, in his "untouched" regions of his mind. This is the placethat he found is home-nest, “O Belde”. Ev ve yuva imgeleri şiirde çok kullanılan imgelerdendir. Şairin kendini güvende hissettiği bir sığınaktır ev. Ahmet Haşim’in şiirlerinde doğa imgesi üzerinde en fazla durulan konulardan olmuştur. Ayrıca şairin karamsarlığı ve gerçek dünyadan hayali dünyaya kaçma isteği üzerinde de değerlendirmeler yapılmıştır. Fakat Haşim’in neden gerçek d

    Taraxacum koksaghyz Rodin (TKS) has been studied in many occasions as a possible alternative source for natural rubber production of good quality and for inulin production. Some tire companies are already testing TKS tire prototypes. There are also many investigations on the production of bio-fuels from inulin and inulin applications for health improvement and in the food industry. A limited amount of genomic resources exist for TKS and particularly no genetic linkage map is available in this species. We have constructed the first TKS genetic linkage map based on AFLP, COS, SSR and EST-SSR markers. The integrated linkage map with eight linkage groups (LG), representing the eight chromosomes of Russian dandelion, has 185 individual AFLP markers from parent 1, 188 individual AFLP markers from parent 2, 75 common AFLP markers and 6 COS, 1 SSR and 63 EST-SSR loci. Blasting the EST-SSR sequences against known sequences from lettuce allowed a partial alignment of our TKS map with a lettuce map. Blast searches against plant gene databases revealed some homologies with useful genes for downstream applications in the future.

    Full Text Available Ahmet Mithat Efendi who has an educational and moral perpective in his art understanding, tries various narrative methods in his broad collected works which are composed of almost every realm of literature. In his novels, he uses narrative methods of local story tradition and Western literature in which he has a deep interest. Despite the fact that he has realistic concerns, his real inspiration source is romantic school. Ahmet Mithat who prefers romantic expression that moulded with ironic understanding, creates a literature structure which described as “metafiction” text according to today‟s postmodern understanding.This study aims to determine how the building blocks of irony in this literature structure is constructed by taking into account the decriptions and classifications of concept of irony. Sanat anlayışında eğitici ve ahlaki bir perspektif gözlenen Ahmet Mithat Efendi, edebiyatın hemen her nevinde yazarak oluşturduğu geniş eser külliyatında farklı anlatım yöntemlerini bir arada dener. Romanlarında, yakından takip ettiği Batı edebiyatı ile yerli hikâye geleneğinin anlatım yöntemlerini harmanlayarak kullanır. Realist endişeler de taşımasına rağmen Batı edebiyatındaki asıl esin kaynağı romantik ekoldür. Felatun Bey ile Rakım Efendi romanında ironik bir anlayışla yoğrulmuş romantik anlatımı tercih eden Ahmet Mithat, ortaya günümüzün postmodern anlayışında “kendi bilincinde” ya da üstkurmaca metin diye tarif edilen bir edebi yapı çıkarır. Bu çalışmada söz konusu yapıda ironinin yapı taşlarının nasıl örüldüğü, ironi kavramının tanım ve tasnifleri göz önünde bulundurularak tespit edilmeye çalışıldı.

    A key concept driving the field of both clinical and applied gerontology is that of personal control. Seminal work conducted in the late 1970s to early 1980s by Ellen Langer and Judith Rodin, who examined the effect of choice and enhanced responsibility on older adults, not only contributed to the discussion of the relevance of control in contemporary theories and practices of aging but also aided in the development of today's philosophy of how to serve and care for older adults in ways that are passionate, humanistic, and empowering. In their early research, residents at a nursing home were randomly assigned to 2 groups: 1 group was told they could arrange their furniture as they wanted, go where they wanted, spend time with whom they wanted, and so forth and were given a plant to care for; the other group was told that the staff was there to take care of and help them, including watering a plant given to each of them. During this study, and 18 months later, residents who were given control and personal responsibility had improved health; among those for whom control had not changed, a greater proportion had died. Since these original studies, research has continued to support the need for personal control as we age. This paper presents a brief overview of literature informed by Langer and Rodin's seminal findings, as well as the role of control to theory, policy, and practice.

    Full Text Available Since 1980, the dynamics of globalization have directed the processes of social, cultural, and political adjustment as well as those of economic integration and especially capital towards urban development, forming urban space. The wave of globalization in Turkey, within a process of economic change in the context of neo liberal policies, urban space has been turned into the most profitable area of investment in the unearned income (economic rent sector. The residential sector has been included in this process quickly and easily through effective and widespread marketing strategies. Over the last two decades of this development, the Ankara-Çayyolu District has become segregated economically and socially between its upper and upper-middle class residents in the urban context. This segregation is evident in residential areas with high-level physical and spatial quality. On the other hand, in addition to the measurable physical and spatial standards of housing quality, it is also important to find out if the quality of living meets the social and cultural expectations of its residents. Starting from this point of view, we examine residents’ perceptions of their physical and social environment in our chosen sample area in the Prof. Dr. Ahmet Taner Kışlalı Neighborhood, and their demands and awareness of housing quality. The story of this neighborhood, which begins in 1980, at a time when neo liberal policies and the power to form urban space was all-important, is defined here by the residents’ quality of living and awareness of it. Our results obtained are expected to help guide the creation of liveable housing areas in the future.Keywords: Housing Users, Urban Living Quality, Social Living, Awareness, Ankara- Çayyolu-Prof. Dr. Ahmet Taner Kışlalı Neighborhood.

    Full Text Available As a human, artist, member of the public, Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar, interpreted the death in his own way and reflected these acquisitions to his works. The death, for Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar, is a philosophic problematic that shows tragic sides of his life and influences deeply his ideas. In the works of the artist, one of the main conflict points is to want/look for immortality by his works, the past, society and culture despite his awareness of being mortal with his soul. When the extreme values formed this conflict are examined as life and death, it will be seen that Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar is “on the brink of himself.” Especially when the diaries of Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar are examined, it’s seen that death/being mortal and immortality is one of the most important issues underlying his action of creating/giving a work. In the face of such a situation, Tanpınar, uses inevitably images related to death at the level of conscious or subconscious. Besides this sense of death reflected by him, it becomes possible to discover his aspects are unduly attached to life. It’s understood that Tanpınar worried distinctly about death in the last years of his life. At the heart of this concern, it is possible to see the results of the duality created by him. In his life defined as the out, he is not the person actually wants to be and conflicts with “him” fictionalized by him in his own inner world. In this article, it will be insisted on the dilemma of death and life creates the tragedy of Tanpınar as the expression of this conflict in his own inner world. In addition, underlying opinions of Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar about the concept of “death”, it will be tried to bring a different perspective to the reflection of the concept in question on his works. Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar bir insan, sanatçı, toplum adamı olarak ölümü kendisince yorumlamış ve bu edinimlerini eserlerine yansıtmıştır. Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar’da ölüm, hayatının trajik

    Full Text Available Ahmet Hashim is one of the most important poets of Turkish literature. His poem and poetry are widely reviewed. When we look carefully at Ahmet Hashim's poem, the effects of both the life he live and his temperament are clearly visible. The currents and opinions adopted from Western literature get a new form by filtering through its mood, namely, they take Hashim’s style. In this work, “Zulmet/Darkness”, an important poem, has been studied in terms of its “imajinary composition” and “content”. The content of this poem is a reflection of the poet's memories and the psychological situation. From another point of view, this reflection implies the poet’s attitude towards life. In this poem, the poet, who has passed through life troubles, imposes to poem subject a psychology which is the result of this troublesome. Namely, in the poem subject a pessimistic soul is dominate. In poem, there is also a structure that is formed on you&I and develops in opposite directions. In addition, in the poem, "zulmet/darkness" is the expression of escape from the reality of the poem subject. Despite his wishes, the poem subject is aware of the fact that it is not possible to escape from reality. It is clearly felt the impossibility of moving out of time and space that is expressed with “darknes”. The second point emphasized in the review is the imaginary composition. This imaginary composition has been overlooked in the studies on Hashim’s poems. When examined carefully, it was seen that "Zulmet" constitutes an imajinary composition with the poems "Yollar" and "O Belde" which written in same period. In the imaginary composition of the three poems, "zulmet" is the place where the essence of poetry is condemned to stay, "Yollar" is the vehicle leading to the target, and "O Belde" is the ultimate happiness country that is missed. Hashim constructs aesthetically and in a manner appropriate to his the mood, the escape which constituted a whole in

    Full Text Available The work, named “Husband and Wife Tale”, written by Ahmet Mithat Efendi; though it does not bear the characteristics expected from a tale, has as impressive structure as the tales in terms of reading. Using the expression “tale” in the work, the author inevitably exhibits an ironic demeanor. People reading the tale expect to hear a husband and wife tale. Yet, a different story and voice greet the person inside the text. The dialogues inside the text direct us to monologue expression, however it is not a simple narration. In order to determine the narration tools in this narration text, we tried to make use of Chatman’s methodology. According to this methodology, the narration is split into two as the story and the expression. What appear in the “Husband and Wife Tale”, which we have tried to evaluate within this frame are dialogues of the narrator and the author. These dialogues signify that the narration has an upper fiction quality. Then we meet the author, who plans to make the story be read until the end by a delay and distraction tactic. We listened to a range of subjects from philosophy to mathematics from husband and wife expressions within the text. We witnessed fictive agreement of the author, who is in search of the ideal reader, with the reader. Ahmet Mithat Efendi’nin kaleme aldığı “Karı Koca Masalı” isimli eser, bir masaldan beklenen özellikleri taşımasa da okunabilirliği açısından masallar kadar etkili bir yapıya sahiptir. Eserin içerisinde masal tabirini kullanan yazar aslında ister istemez ironik bir tavır sergilemiş olur. Masalı alıp okuyan insanların beklentisi bir karı koca masalı duymaktır. Ancak metin içerisine girildiğinde farklı bir hikâye ve ses ile karşılaşılır. Metin içerisindeki karşılıklı konuşmalar bizi iç monolog terimine yönlendirse de basit bir anlatı metni değildir. Bu anlatı metnindeki anlatı araçlarını tespit edebilmek için Chatman

    Full Text Available L’objet du présent article est de préciser des idées et des observations à propos de la traduction en français l’une des oeuvres de la littérature turque. En tant que corpus, nous avons choisi le roman turc d’Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar, célèbre poète et romancier turc qui a été considéré comme le fondateur de la littérature turque moderne. Son roman intitulé “Beş Şehir” a été traduit en français sous le titre de “Cinq Villes”. Il est évident que chaque langue contient, préfabrique, impose à ses locuteurs une certaine manière de regarder le monde, d’analyser l’expérience que nous avons du monde. Si nous voulons comprendre pourquoi et comment la traduction reste possible, il nous faut donc, d’abord, accepter dans son entièreté ce fait qu’une langue nous oblige à connaître d’autres cultures à voir le monde d’une certaine manière, la traduction n’est pas toujours possible. Elle ne l’est que dans une certaine mesure et dans certaines limites. G.Mounin(1976,44-45 souligne “pour bien traduire une langue, il ne suffit pas d’étudier cette langue, , il faut étudier, la culture qui lui correspond”. Notre objectif, dans ce travail, est d’analyser la traduction, plus particulièrement des éléments spécifiques propres à une culture inexistante dans la langue cible. Il s’agit de montrer comment un certain nombre de réferences historiques et culturelles sont traduits dans ce moyen d’expression. Nous traiterons en ce qui concerne les réferences culturelles qui doivent être adoptées par les connaissances des lecteurs français; et qui sont également fortes nombreuses dans cette oeuvre. Le traducteur doit expliquer au récepteur étranger, les particularités des termes ce qui lui sont compréhensibles et qu’il peut comparer avec les réalités déjà de la propre culture. Ces explications utilisées par le traducteur ont avant tout, une valeur informative, elles permettent aux r

The viola gained significant importance as a virtuoso instrument after the 20th century. World renowned composers such as Bela Bartok, Paul Hindemith, and William Walton composed high level concertos for the solo viola which have a certain level of virtuosity.

These Turkish composers frequently used folk elements in their compositions. This article focuses on how Ahmed Adnan Saygun applied these traditional folk elements in his viola concerto.

    Full Text Available In the eighties, the Bessarabian nobleman Mihail Stroesku's attempts to support the Romanian Bessarabian education were rejected by the Russian authorities, so his philanthropic activities was conducted in the Kingdom of Romania, especially in Transylvania. "Association for Supporting Apprentices and Journeymen of Romanian Craftsmen of Braşov" was founded in 1869 by a group of Braşov intellectuals and merchants on the initiative of the priest Bartolomeu Baiulescu. The purpose of this organization was to help the apprentices and journeymen and to support craft activities in Braşov. The customs war, which broke out between Romania and Austria-Hungary in mid-1886, had serious consequences for the economy of Transylvania. The economic disorders provoked the migration of a significant part of manufacturers and workshop owners from Transylvania outside the Carpathian arc that worsened the financial problems of the craftsmen association from Braşov. On November 22, Mihail Stroesku and his wife Eliza donated the association 25,000 Austrian florins (50,000 lei. Over the years, the "Eliza and Mihail Stroescu Foundation" was one of the main sources of its funding. This money has been spent on manuals, materials, awards, scholarships, rent, material assistance, current expenditure etc.

    Full Text Available Institutionalization of diplomatic agents of the United Principalities in Paris was possible after the meeting held on August 26 / September 7 1860. After receiving the note from the Foreign Minister of Moldova, Mihail Jora, and a letter from Prince Cuza, French Foreign Minister, Ed. Thouvenel, said he was very happy to receive the staff of Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza. Even so, he could not consider the Romanian Agent an official agent, because he would violate the 1858 Paris Convention, to which France participated. In this context, the United Principalities Agency was officially recognized and later became the Romanian Legation in Paris (1880.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The Session Initiation Protocol (SIP is an application layer signaling protocol used to create, manage, and terminate sessions in an IP based network. SIP is considered as a transactional protocol. There are two main SIP transactions, the INVITE transaction and the non-INVITE transaction. The SIP INVITE transaction specification is described in an informal way in Request for Comments (RFC 3261 and modified in RFC 6026. In this paper we focus on the INVITE transaction of SIP, over reliable and unreliable transport mediums, which is used to initiate a session. In order to ensure the correctness of SIP, the INVITE transaction is modeled and verified using event-B method and its Rodin platform. The Event-B refinement concept allows an incremental development by defining the studied system at different levels of abstraction, and Rodin discharges almost all proof obligations at each level. This interaction between modeling and proving reduces the complexity and helps in assuring that the INVITE transaction SIP specification is correct, unambiguous, and easy to understand.

He strives todefine the rules and the frame of elegant living in it, and for thatpurpose, builds an imaginary conversation with George BryanBrummell who is identified with dandy and dandyism. In thatcorversation, Brummell is presented as an expert on customs andelegant living, and his notions are postulated.On the other hand, Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar who is one of the mostimportant personalities of Turkish literature in the 20th century, buildsa similar conversation with Ahmet Cemil who is a protagonist of HalitZiya Uşaklıgil’s novel named Mai ve Siyah, one hundred years later. Theconversation titled “Ahmet Cemille Mülakat” was published in Anayurt,in number 8 and 9, at the last month of 1933. He examinessarcastically poetry and fiction of the literature of Servet-i Fünun andlife styles of that period through elderly Ahmet Cemil then.

    This study assessed “normative discontent,” the concept that most women experience weight dissatisfaction, as an emerging societal stereotype for women and men (Rodin, Silberstein, & Streigel-Moore, 1984). Participants (N = 472) completed measures of stereotypes, eating disorders, and body image. Normative discontent stereotypes were pervasive for women and men. Endorsing stereotypes varied by sex and participants’ own disturbance, with trends towards eating disorder symptomotology being positively correlated with stereotype endorsement. Individuals with higher levels of body image and eating disturbance may normalize their behavior by perceiving that most people share their experiences. Future research needs to test prevention and intervention strategies that incorporate the discrepancies between body image/eating-related stereotypes and reality with focus on preventing normalization of such experiences.

  17. Formal Analysis of BPMN Models Using Event-B

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bryans, Jeremy W.; Wei, Wei

    The use of business process models has gone far beyond documentation purposes. In the development of business applications, they can play the role of an artifact on which high level properties can be verified and design errors can be revealed in an effort to reduce overhead at later software development and diagnosis stages. This paper demonstrates how formal verification may add value to the specification, design and development of business process models in an industrial setting. The analysis of these models is achieved via an algorithmic translation from the de-facto standard business process modeling language BPMN to Event-B, a widely used formal language supported by the Rodin platform which offers a range of simulation and verification technologies.

    Non-contact scanners may have potential for measurement of residual limb volume. Different non-contact scanners have been introduced during the last decades. Reliability and usability (practicality and user friendliness) should be assessed before introducing these systems in clinical practice. The aim of this study was to analyze the measurement properties and usability of four non-contact scanners (TT Design, Omega Scanner, BioSculptor Bioscanner, and Rodin4D Scanner). Quasi experimental. Nine (geometric and residual limb) models were measured on two occasions, each consisting of two sessions, thus in total 4 sessions. In each session, four observers used the four systems for volume measurement. Mean for each model, repeatability coefficients for each system, variance components, and their two-way interactions of measurement conditions were calculated. User satisfaction was evaluated with the Post-Study System Usability Questionnaire. Systematic differences between the systems were found in volume measurements. Most of the variances were explained by the model (97%), while error variance was 3%. Measurement system and the interaction between system and model explained 44% of the error variance. Repeatability coefficient of the systems ranged from 0.101 (Omega Scanner) to 0.131 L (Rodin4D). Differences in Post-Study System Usability Questionnaire scores between the systems were small and not significant. The systems were reliable in determining residual limb volume. Measurement systems and the interaction between system and residual limb model explained most of the error variances. The differences in repeatability coefficient and usability between the four CAD/CAM systems were small. Clinical relevance If accurate measurements of residual limb volume are required (in case of research), modern non-contact scanners should be taken in consideration nowadays.

    The effect of recombinant factor VIII (rFVIII) brand on inhibitor development was investigated in all 407 severe hemophilia A previously untreated patients born in the United Kingdom (UK) between 1 January 2000 and 31 December 2011. Eighty-eight (22%) had been in the RODIN study. Information was extracted from the National Haemophilia Database. Because exposure days (EDs) were not known for some patients, time from first treatment was used as a surrogate for rFVIII exposure. An inhibitor developed in 118 (29%) patients, 60 high and 58 low titer, after a median (interquartile range) of 7.8 (3.3-13.5) months from first exposure and 16 (9-30) EDs. Of 128 patients treated with Kogenate Bayer/Helixate NexGen, 45 (35.2%, 95% confidence interval [CI] 27.4-43.8) developed an inhibitor compared with 42/172 (24.4%, 95% CI 18.6% to 31.4%) with Advate (P = .04). The adjusted hazard ratio (HR) (95% CI) for Kogenate Bayer/Helixate NexGen compared with Advate was 2.14 (1.12-4.10) (P = .02) for high titer and 1.75 (1.11-2.76) (P = .02) for all inhibitors. When excluding UK-RODIN patients, the adjusted HR (95% CI) for high-titer inhibitors was 2.00 (0.93-4.34) (P = .08). ReFacto AF was associated with a higher incidence of all, but not high-titer, inhibitors than Advate. These results will help inform debate around the relative immunogenicity and use of rFVIII brands. PMID:25339360

The stereotype that females only work to ensure enhanced family lifestyles remains evident in the daily life of all (Hoobler, Lemmon & Wyane, 2014, p. 704; Mihail, 2006. Furthermore the stereotype that males‟ focus is much more ambitious in terms of reaching the highest managerial achievement/technical/ functional competence is regarded as a reality within society (Hoobler, Lemmon & Wyane, 2014, p. 704; Mihail, 2006. Insight into the question whether females work to live or live to work was investigated and this article reports on the differences between females and males regarding their work life ambitions. The data resulted from a quantitative research approach and the population consisted of 4 200 employees within an Open Distance electronic Learning (ODeL Higher Education Institution (HEI in South Africa. The focus was on the composition of a structured career conversation framework, using the original Schein career anchors (Schein, 1978; 1990; 1996 and the three-factor career-enabler model, developed by Grobler, Bezuidenhout and Rudolph (2014. Descriptive statistics, chi-square statistics as well as independent t-test analysis was used to identify the differences between genders with regard to career anchors and career enablers in different career stages. The results of the analysis illustrated that females focus more on the autonomy/independence- and lifestyle integration career anchors than males in the first 3 years of employment, thereafter their focus remains more on the lifestyle integration career anchor than males. Males however focus more on the general managerial career anchor in the first 3 years of their careers than women; and after 3 years males‟ focus moves more to the entrepreneurial creativity career anchor.

    Full Text Available Modernism in Turkish literature begins by the mediation of journal. Most of new literary types attained to our literature owe their existances and developments to journal. Yusuf Kâmil Paşa brings in first translation novel to Turkish by means of consecutive narrative for a newspaper. After that novels are published by means of consecutive narrative in Tanzimat era. Ahmet Mithat Efendi is both journalist and novelist. Ahmet Mithat Efendi who seeks compromise between journal and novel handles the contribution of both type to each other in Esrâr-ı Cinâyât novel. In the novel, he discusses the cooperation of a civil servant who encounters pressure and a true journalist for the criminals to be catched and handed over to the justice and for the relief of the conscience of public. The novelist that makes journal and journalist the most important component for the solution of events gives a lot of information about the journalism in Tanzimat era, as well. On this occasion, the affairs like journalism, typography, Newsprinting Regulation (Matbuat Nizamnamesi, freedom of notion newspaper- government relation and censorship become the most important matters that emphasize on in the novel.

    Full Text Available Koç Holding is the most established conglomerate in Turkey. Th e company’s beginnings date from the mid 1920s, when Ahmet Vehbi Koç, founder of Koç Holding, had his first own company registered with the Ankara Chamber of Commerce. In 1932, Koç moved his business from his father’s store on Anafartalar Street to a new building, the first Koç Han, erected the same year on Çankırı Street Nr.13 in Ulus. Th e building’s designer was Swiss-Austrian architect Ernst Arnold Egli, who had come to Turkey only five years earlier upon invitation by the government to work as chief architect of the Ministry of National Education. During his stay, which lasted from 1927 until 1940, Egli realized about 40 projects and worked on many more. Koç Han is the rare example of a commercial building by Egli. At a time when the urban aspect of the old town center of Ankara consisted mostly of one-or two-storeyed stone-and-wood houses, the first Koç Han represented an altogether new building type for the town, in being a multipurpose edifice with space for shops at street level, with large storage facilities below ground, and providing off ices and housing on the upper fl oors. Th e functional rigor of the plan and the sober modernism of the building’s facades contrasted strongly with the architecture of the time. In this respect, the first Koç Han was a strong statement regarding Ahmet Vehbi Koç’s belief in a modern Turkey and to the contribution of the building’s architect, Ernst Arnold Egli, to this project.

They standout to manifest other rhythms such as psycho-social and cultural ones.Hence, the proposition of a rhythmic order based on empiricalobservation of nature and especially skies to comprehend temporalspace-time and a shift to a modern space-time which replaces naturewith a new order is justified and posited. Accordingly, the secondchapter aims to discuss the disengagement in temporal space-timeconception occurring in the transformation from traditional to modern.The intention is to demonstrate the social and cultural relation of thedisengagement with the modern period. Hence this chapter studies the exemplary texts on disengagement and the figures that have taken disengagement as their agenda in their texts. Ahmet Mithat‟s „Adab-ı Muaşeret yahut Alafranga (Forms of Politeness or the French Style‟, Ahmet Rasim‟s „Şehir Mektupları (Urban Mail‟, Hasan Hamid‟s „Şems-i Tarih - Zeval-i Saat (Dissolution of Time‟, Ahmet Samim‟s „Vaktimizi Bilelim (Know Our Hour‟, Ahmet Haşim‟s „Müslüman Saati (Muslim Clock‟ and Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar‟s „Saatleri Ayarlama Enstitüsü (The Calibration Institute of Clocks‟ are the exemplary texts to discuss the change in space-time conception. The assessment section associates the texts to each other and the topic. „Disengagement of exilic moon calendar‟, „disengagement of Ottoman time‟, „disengagement of day-night demarcation‟ are the cases of this chapter.

    Full Text Available Wireless sensor-actor networks are a recent development of wireless networks where both ordinary sensor nodes and more sophisticated and powerful nodes, called actors, are present. In this paper we formalize a recently introduced algorithm that recovers failed actor communication links via the existing sensor infrastructure. We prove via refinement that the recovery is terminating in a finite number of steps and is distributed, thus self-performed by the actors. Most importantly, we prove that the recovery can be done at different levels, via different types of links, such as direct actor links or indirect links between the actors, in the latter case reusing the wireless infrastructure of sensors. This leads to identifying coordination classes, e.g., for delegating the most security sensitive coordination to the direct actor-actor coordination links, the least real-time constrained coordination to indirect links, and the safety critical coordination to both direct actor links and indirect sensor paths between actors. Our formalization is done using the theorem prover in the RODIN platform.

  20. Backbone Brackets and Arginine Tweezers delineate Class I and Class II aminoacyl tRNA synthetases

    The origin of the machinery that realizes protein biosynthesis in all organisms is still unclear. One key component of this machinery are aminoacyl tRNA synthetases (aaRS), which ligate tRNAs to amino acids while consuming ATP. Sequence analyses revealed that these enzymes can be divided into two complementary classes. Both classes differ significantly on a sequence and structural level, feature different reaction mechanisms, and occur in diverse oligomerization states. The one unifying aspect of both classes is their function of binding ATP. We identified Backbone Brackets and Arginine Tweezers as most compact ATP binding motifs characteristic for each Class. Geometric analysis shows a structural rearrangement of the Backbone Brackets upon ATP binding, indicating a general mechanism of all Class I structures. Regarding the origin of aaRS, the Rodin-Ohno hypothesis states that the peculiar nature of the two aaRS classes is the result of their primordial forms, called Protozymes, being encoded on opposite strands of the same gene. Backbone Brackets and Arginine Tweezers were traced back to the proposed Protozymes and their more efficient successors, the Urzymes. Both structural motifs can be observed as pairs of residues in contemporary structures and it seems that the time of their addition, indicated by their placement in the ancient aaRS, coincides with the evolutionary trace of Proto- and Urzymes.

  1. A imagem como potência de reflexão

    Jordi Carmona Hurtado

    2017-06-01

    Full Text Available Durante longo tempo, segundo uma antiga conceptualidade filosófica, a imagem foi associada ao reflexo, à cópia, à multiplicação gratuita dos seres ou ao simulacro da presença efetiva. No presente ensaio, contra essa tradição de desqualificação, tentamos mostrar que é possível pensar a imagem não como um simples reflexo, mas como uma verdadeira potência de reflexão. A partir de uma análise recente de Jacques Rancière, que categoriza uma “pensatividade” em relação a algumas imagens particulares da arte, tentamos mostrar que essa pensatividade é extensível de um modo mais geral ao regime estético do pensamento da imagem, desde sua origem kantiana. As considerações de Deleuze sobre os signos-hieróglifos proustianos ou as meditações de Rilke diante das superfícies da estatuária de Rodin mostram o que está mais profundamente em jogo nesse deslocamento estético do estatuto da imagem: a possibilidade de uma vida não idêntica no sensível.

    The aim of this study is to reveal the cognitive construction about the relationship between nuclear energy and environment of the undergraduates who have studied science of environment by using word association test and to determine the conception mistakes. The research was made on 81 trainee teachers who study at Ahmet Kelerlu Faculty of Education Department of Geography and Biology, University of Necmettin Erbakan on 2012-2013 academic year fall semester. In the study, it was seen that the topics which the undergraduates mostly refer in their written statements were the nuclear energy's indication of improvement of countries, its necessity, nuclear accidents, nuclear weapons and the ecocide. The other opinions which gained importance were nuclear reaction, nuclear raw material and countries producing nuclear energy. It's seen that nuclear accidents and nuclear weapons are very effective on the graduates' point of view. The opinions about nuclear energy's harm to the environment show that environmental awareness became of secondary importance. The written concepts about these two opinions are very close to each other by percentage. Mainly, the radiation effects caused by the nuclear accidents constitute the fundamental point of undergraduates' perception of environment. (author)

    Full Text Available The main purpose of this study is to develop a scale for German teacher candidates’ attitude towards the German reading. The scale was applied to 156 students who were enrolled in the Foreign Language Teaching Department of the Ahmet Kelesoglu Education Faculty, Necmettin Erbakan University. Out of 156 students, %14.1 (n=22 were preparation class, %26.3 (n=41 were first grade, %29,5 (n=46 were second grade, %19.8 (n=31 were third grade and %10.3 (n=16 were fourth grade students. In the scale, there were 34 items. To test the validity exploratory factor analysis was used and to determine the reliability Cronbach coefficient was used. According to the exploratory factor analysis a construct with 17 items and 1 dimension was achieved. The Cronbach’s alpha value for the scale was found to be 0.72. In addition, the SAS (University Edition analysis program was used to determine whether the attitudes of the students differed in gender, income and education level of mother and father. The other findings of the study revealed that the students generally had moderate level of attitude towards German reading and the attitude scores did not change according to gender and education of parents. However, the attitude scores changed according to the income. It is amazing that the students, whose income level was highest, had low level of attitude towards German reading. It can be said that high income level affected the German reading attitudes negatively.

Fromthe first generation of administrative reforms to therepublic period, many different kinds of literary worksabout the three military revolutions, collectivist realistictendency manner and about worker’s life that migrate toGermany, has been written. These mentioned periodscould be an indication to the fact that Turkish literatureis within the politics.The reflection of 12th September militaryrevolution seen clearly in novel is one of the periods inwhich the dose of politics in literature increased. AdaletAğaoğlu’s Hayır… (No…, Kaan Arslanoğlu’s Devrimciler(Revolutionaries, Mehmet Eroğlu’s Yüz: 1981 (Face:1981, Ahmet Altan’s Sudaki Đz (Trace in Water, OrhanPamuk’s Sessiz Ev (Silent House are among the fewnovels that reflect this period without engaging it to theideologies. This article is an attempt for contrastively andanalytically evaluation of the 12th September revolution’sreflections on Turkish Literature using above mentionedexamples.

It is related to a number of pathological conditions including: cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, cancer, diabetes mellitus, gastrointestinal system disorders, inflammation and aging. It is difficult to quantify free radicals directly due to their reactive nature and short half-life. For this reason, most people prefer to measure antioxidant levels and/or the end products of free radical attack on macromolecules such as lipids, proteins and nucleic acids. In this study we have established a short and easy method to determine urinary levels of malondialdehyde, an end product of lipid peroxidation. The method depends on the spectroscopic measurement of color intensity of the product formed by the reaction of the aldehyde groups with the Schiff reagent. The method is linear at a concentration range of 1–10 µM and correlates with the widely used thiobarbituric acid method.Keywords: urinary malondialdehyde, oxidative stress, Schiff reagent

PD is not an uncommon disorder, with recent epidemiologic studies documenting a prevalence of 3–9% of adult men affected. The actual prevalence of PD may be even higher. It is often associated with penile pain, anatomical deformities in the erect penis, and difficulty with intromission. As the definitive pathophysiology of PD has not been completely elucidated, further basic research is required to make progress in the understanding of this enigmatic condition. Similarly, research on effective therapies is limited. Currently, nonsurgical treatments are used for those men who are in the acute stage of PD, whereas surgical options are reserved for men with established PD who cannot successfully penetrate. Intralesional treatments are growing in clinical popularity as a minimally invasive approach in the initial treatment of PD. A surgical approach should be considered when men with PD do not respond to conservative, medical, or minimally invasive therapies for approximately 1 year and cannot have satisfactory sexual intercourse. As scientific breakthroughs in the understanding of the mechanisms of this disease process evolve, novel treatments for the many men suffering with PD are anticipated.Keywords: oral therapy, intralesional treatment, topical therapy, extracorporeal shockwave therapy, traction devices, plication, incision and grafting, penile prosthesis.

That improvement first shows its face in translation, then writing in Turkish Literature. The history of detective novel, which began to take its place inliterary history due to the emergence of crime and along withurbanization, is as old as the concept of crime history. Having aparticular history, it can be claimed that it prepared the ground for theemergence of novel. However, two major war, which happened in the20th century, has led to a rapid development of the detective novel, thebest way to tell the story of the crimes.Ahmet Ümit’s novel İstanbul Hatırası is important as it shows thechange of detective novel in Turkish novel. A real – up to date and anunreal – historical, two different engaging fictions are being narrated inthat detective novel. Beginning with the murder, a journey to thehistorical sites of Istanbul is made. In addition, the importances ofthese sites, which are close to be destroyed, are pointed out.In this study, after mentioning how detective novel emerged inWest and Turkish Literature and its historic development, Ahmet Ümit’sİstanbul Hatırası has been analyzed and postmodern features in thisnovel has been emphasized.

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available Review of Ahmet Ersoy, Architecture and the Late Ottoman Historical Imaginary: Reconfiguring the Architectural Past in a Modernizing Empire: Late Ottoman Empire’s concerted effort to forge a modern imperial identity to better position itself within the emerging world system was accompanied by a proto-nationalist desire for an authentic cultural past. In the field of art and architecture, the result was a new interest and patriotic pride in the Islamic artistic and architectural heritage of the Empire, along with an intense period of creative engagement with European artistic and scholarly discourses. The book offers a meticulously historicized account of what emerged as a major intellectual effort to construct a genealogy for Ottoman architecture, to make it intelligible in terms of Western architectural theory and above all, to recast it as a historically evolving style capable of revival in the modern world. In doing so, it critically engages with recent scholarly debates on modernity, historicism, romanticism, orientalism, nationalism, revivalism, cosmopolitanism, authenticity, eclecticism and hybridity among other topics. Taking issue with both the received “westernization paradigm” and its companion, the notorious “decline thesis” in terms of which the architecture of Ottoman Tanzimat has long been written, it gives us a more complex, more nuanced, more cosmopolitan and more ambivalent picture. As such, it makes a major contribution to Ottoman/ Turkish studies, to the historiography of Islamic architecture and to cross-cultural studies in general.

    Full Text Available This paper is briefly dealing with the current situation in Afghanistan within the context of Turkey’s increasing role in Afghanistan. Turkish-Afghani relations are examined in terms of politics and economy while Turkish foreign policies towards Afghanistan and the Turkish-Pakistani-Afghani triple summit attempts are analyzed. Additionally, Turkey’s security and socio-economic contributions in Afghanistan are emphasized. Turkey’s unwillingness to send troops to Afghanistanfor operational purposes that is frequently debated in national and international circles has been evaluated by stating the advantages and disadvantages of such decision. Turkey’s quiet approach between 2001 and 2004 towards Afghanistan, which have been energizing since 2005 and Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu’s visit to Afghanistan on June 2009 have been dealt as well. By considering Davutoglu’s policies, aiming to introduce Turkey as a global actor and as the term President of the UNSC (the UN Security Council, it seems that Turkey is preparing to play a more active role in Afghanistan.

    Full Text Available In article the ideology of turkish foreign policy is analyzed, elaborated and successfully put into practice by the former Minister for Foreign Affairs, and nowadays by prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu. Foreign policy strategy of Davutoglu represents set of the interconnected theoretical (the flexible approach; consistency and systematic approach; new diplomatic style and practical principles directed on increase of a role of the Turkish state on international scene - balance between democracy and safety; “zero of problems with neighbours”; preventive and priority peace diplomacy; multidimensional foreign policy; rhythmical diplomacy. Each of principles possesses certain properties and characteristics which have always been presented as a certain purpose which is necessary for reaching Turkey in the difficult international environment. Undoubtedly, A. Davutoglu's ideology has brought the huge contribution to activization and expansion of foreign policy of Turkey last decade. The merit of Davutoglu consists that it has cardinally changed the approach of the Turkish state to the foreign policy which was based earlier on such postulate - “the best friend of a Turk is a Turk”. However the destructive events which have passed and occurring today as in the Turkish state (terrorism strengthening, instability of political system, and also in region of the Middle East - civil war in Syria, deterioration of relations with Russia, Greece, Syria, Iran and Iraq have called into question a number of positions of the concept of Davutoglu in this connection in article some attention to the critic of its approach is paid also.

The differential diagnosis of osteoblastoma-like osteosarcoma from osteoblastoma and aggressive osteoblastoma remains controversial and challenging. Previous studies suggest that these three types of tumor are distinct entities. However, working out a precise diagnosis may not always be possible immediately on the basis of initial clinical, radiological, and histopathological features. On the other hand, the importance of a correct diagnosis cannot be overemphasized since the treatment strategies change dramatically according to the nature of the lesion. In all of our cases, initial Tru-Cut biopsies revealed osteoblastic features with minimal atypia, but further biopsies confirmed malignancy. A high index of suspicion and considerable experience are prerequisites for accurate diagnosis in case of clinicopathological and radiological discordance.

    Full Text Available Fiction has always been one of the most favourite types for readers. Some novels leave deep influences on society. Such novels can also be called a novel of a generation. Such that, novel heroes influence the reader as heroes from real life. In this article, we will address two generation novels. The first one is the “Sorrows of Young Werther”, written by Goethe, the great author of the German literature in 1774. The other one is the “Blue and Black” written by Halit Ziya, the great author of Turkish literature, in 1897. According to this method the purpose of which is to discover the relations between life and the work, it is seen that the heroes of both novels are a little bit their authors in person. Goethe is Young Werther and Ahmet Cemil is Halit Ziya. And the people around them such as Raci in Blue and Black resembled to Muallim Naci profoundly. Both characters reflected their own period very well. They have influence not only with their ideas but also their way of dressing and actions as well as even their loves. Ahmet Cemil got disappointed when he could not attain his goals. His dreams at a blue night ended at a black night. The contrast between dream and reality was also expressed with colours. In Young Werther, colors are remarkable as well. “Blue and Black” ends with a disappointment with this regard. Whereas Young Werther ends with suicide. The method used in the analysis is the Positivism method, one of the comparative literature methods which makes an art of comparing literary works. Roman türü, okur tarafından en beğenilen türlerden biri olmuştur. Bazı romanlar toplum üzerinde derin tesirler bırakır. Bu romanlar bir neslin romanı olarak da adlandırılabilir. Öyle ki, roman kahramanları, hayatın içinden kahramanlar olarak okura tesir eder. Bu makalede iki nesil romanı ele alınmıştır.

    The problem of antimony (Sb) activity during decontamination was first encountered in NAPS-1 and Sb activity deposition took place during the decontamination resulting in poor decontamination factors (DF). Sb problem has been observed in PWRs and PHWRs elsewhere also. These utilities use an oxidative process involving the addition of H 2 O 2 to remove these Sb activities from the core and remove it on ion exchange resins. Experience in CANDU PHWRs indicated disappearance of H 2 O 2 in quantities higher than that observed in PWRs. This is attributed to the higher pick-up of H 2 O 2 by the magnetite/ferrites over large carbon steel surface present in the primary coolant system of PHWRs. Systematic work was carried out to understand the deposition of Sb on PHT system surfaces and a new method was evolved to remove the Sb activities from the system. This alternative reductive chemical process involve the addition of Nitrilo Tri Acetic Acid, Citric Acid and Rodine-92B and circulating the chemicals for a short period and then the Sb and other activities released from the core are removed by the mixed bed. Subsequent to the Sb removal process, the normal chemical decontamination of the system is carried out to remove 60 Co and other activities. This non-oxidizing Sb removal process was applied to NAPS-2 primary system prior to EMCCR. During this Sb removal process of NAPS-2, around 450 μCi/L activity of 124 Sb was released from the system surfaces to the formulation. Activity measurement in the samples collected and the on-line radiation field data indicated that deposition of Sb activities on system surfaces has been prevented by Rodine-92B and subsequently these activities have been removed by mixed bed IX columns. Antimony removal process worked successfully, but in the second normal decontamination process around 150 μCi/L activities came in the formulation which was not anticipated. As a result DF observed immediately after the decontamination campaign was not good

    Radiation resistance characteristics were evaluated for a multi-mode quartz core fiber in low temperature region together with photobleaching effect depending on the incident light power and dependency on the wavelength of measuring rays. This report describes the results of the abovementioned items and the next step study of trial manufacturing of a pure-quartz single-mode fiber for the employment of longer wavelength rays and greater capacity in light transmission communication system. Quartz core fiber specimens were irradiated by 60 Co γ-ray source at -55 deg C to 80 deg C in a constant temperature bath and light transmission loss was determined under irradiation conditions. Low temperature characteristics were superior in an MRT (modified rod-in tube) pure quartz fiber prepared by the plasma method as compared to VAD quartz and Ge-GI fibers. The MRT fiber showed better quality than the Ge-GI fiber also in the photobleaching effect examination. As for the wavelength dependency, light transmission loss of the MRT fiber was less than that of the Ge-GI fiber. The MRT fiber also showed a superior quality in the wide range of irradiation temperatures. Based on the above-mentioned understandings, a pure-quartz single-mode fiber of both BF 3 -doped and F-doped cladding types were developed for longer wavelengths uses. The fibers could attain low light transmission loss of less than 1.0 dB/km at 1.30 μm of wavelength. At the standpoint of radiation resistivity, the BF 3 -doped fiber was found superior.

    Natural rubber (NR) is an important raw material for a large number of industrial products. The primary source of NR is the rubber tree Hevea brasiliensis, but increased worldwide demand means that alternative sustainable sources are urgently required. The Russian dandelion (Taraxacum koksaghyz Rodin) is such an alternative because large amounts of NR are produced in its root system. However, rubber biosynthesis must be improved to develop T. koksaghyz into a commercially feasible crop. In addition to NR, T. koksaghyz also produces large amounts of the reserve carbohydrate inulin, which is stored in parenchymal root cell vacuoles near the phloem, adjacent to apoplastically separated laticifers. In contrast to NR, which accumulates throughout the year even during dormancy, inulin is synthesized during the summer and is degraded from the autumn onwards when root tissues undergo a sink-to-source transition. We carried out a comprehensive analysis of inulin and NR metabolism in T. koksaghyz and its close relative T. brevicorniculatum and functionally characterized the key enzyme fructan 1-exohydrolase (1-FEH), which catalyses the degradation of inulin to fructose and sucrose. The constitutive overexpression of Tk1-FEH almost doubled the rubber content in the roots of two dandelion species without any trade-offs in terms of plant fitness. To our knowledge, this is the first study showing that energy supplied by the reserve carbohydrate inulin can be used to promote the synthesis of NR in dandelions, providing a basis for the breeding of rubber-enriched varieties for industrial rubber production. © 2016 The Authors.

    Dilute Chemical Decontamination (DCD) process has been used in several full system and components of nuclear coolant systems to effectively remove the radioactive contaminants that causes radiation field and consequent MANREM problem. The DCD process uses chemicals in very low concentrations (millimolar) and dissolves the oxide film along with the activity incorporated in the oxide film. In DCD process operated under the regenerative mode, the chemical formulation spent in the process of oxide dissolution is replenished by passing through cation exchange columns. Finally, after achieving sufficient decontamination of the system/component, the added decontamination chemicals along with the activities and metal ions released during the process are removed by mixed bed ion exchange columns and the system is restored to normal operating condition in few days time. In PHWRs, the regenerative DCD process is applied for full primary coolant system decontamination. The chemicals are added directly to the heavy water coolant with the fuel in the core. In Indian PHWRs (MAPS-1 and 2, RAPS-1 and 2, NAPS-1 and 2 and KAPS-1), the process has been applied eleven times. A chemical formulation based on NTA, Citric acid and Ascorbic acid has been applied seven times with good results. Decontamination factors in the range 2-30 have been obtained in different components with good MANREM savings in the subsequent maintenance works. Efforts are on to modify the process to take care of the challenges posed by antimony isotope. An inhibitor (Rodine-92B) based process was successfully tested in NAPS-2 for removing antimony isotopes ( 122 Sb and 124 Sb). Further refining of the antimony removal process is being worked out. Similarly, the process is being modified to effectively remove the hotspot causing stellite particles in the moderator system of PHWRs. A permanganate based process has been developed and tested in several adjustor rod drive mechanisms in KAPS and NAPS. The experience of

    A conceptual model of a partnership in 'like-minded thinking' consists of the following components: a relationship, a shared goal with mutual agreement to work toward that goal, and reciprocal encouragement between two people. A like-minded alliance is a relationship that offers support while at the same time encourages hope and establishes a reciprocating emotional attitude of hopefulness. The discussion focuses on the principles of such a model that is designed primarily as a lay intervention for anyone who has a close friend with cancer and who wants to assist the friend in maintaining a hopeful attitude in the face of illness. While this model is not directed at healthcare professionals it may be transferable into psychosocial interventions to assist persons toward sustaining hopefulness in the context of the cancer trajectory. Much has been written in the literature about how hopelessness spawns despair for individuals who have cancer and in those near the end of life; it may even create a desire for hastened death (Breitbart W., Heller K.S.: 2003, 'Reframing Hope: Meaning-Centered Care for Patients Near the End of Life'. Journal of Palliative Medicine 6, 979-988; Jones J.M., Huggins M.A., Rydall A.C., Rodin G.M.: 2003, 'Symptomatic distress, hopelessness, and the desire for hastened death in hospitalized cancer patients', Journal of Psychosomatic Research 55, 411-418). Therefore, the aim of this paper is to explore how like-minded thinking for a person with cancer and his or her support person provides a framework for a personal shared worldview that is hope-based, meaningful and coherent.

  8. The Problem of Homosexuality: Desire-in-Uneasiness, Friendship, Family, Freedom

    Full Text Available Zenne Dancer is a 2011 Turkish film written by Caner Alper and directed by Alper and Mehmet Binay. It is inspired by the story of Ahmet Yildiz, a gay Kurdish Turk allegedly murdered by his father in 2008 for dishonoring his family. Through its depiction of the unlikely friendship between three men, the film addresses the problem of homosexuality, the desire-in-uneasiness evoked by men being together, and the complex social structures of honor killings. In its address of honor killings, Zenne Dancer follows in a prestigious line of some of the best of Turkish and world cinema. Importantly, though, there are differences here as Zenne Dancer reimagines the relationships involved in crimes of honor. First, Zenne Dancer deploys the story of a father killing his son, rather than his daughter, to save the family honor, which is threatened by homosexual desire rather than the loss of virginity or illegitimate pregnancy. Second, rather than pitting the modern state against religion, tradition, or pre-modern culture, Zenne Dancer’s critique of honor killing implicates both the police and the military in the violence done in the name of tradition (not religion. Islam plays a much smaller part than economic deprivation or the trauma of war in this film. Third, the film complicates gendered expectations through its deployment of female characters—mothers, sisters, lovers—who all have their own relationships with and perspectives on these men. The film depicts heteropatriarchy as a system harmful to women and men and shows men and women enforcing and resisting that harm. In the end, Zenne Dancer connects these thematic concerns through a mixture of realist story, dance video, daydream, fairytale, and melodrama in a film ultimately concerned with the care of the self and the meaning of liberation. Thus, it resists falling into fictional “realist anthropology” or simplistic assertions of repression in confronting the complexities of honor killings

Methods: This prospective observational cohort study included 88 patients who have had acute ischemic stroke and a control group of 40 patients who were evaluated in the Emergency Department for disorders other than acute ischemic stroke. All subjects had RDW determined, and stroke patients had scoring with the GCS, CNS, and NIHSS scores. The GCS, CNS, and NIHSS scores of the patients were rated as mild, moderate, or severe and compared with RDW. Results: Stroke patients had significantly higher median RDW than control subjects. The median RDW values were significantly elevated in patients who had more severe rather than milder strokes rated with all three scoring systems (GCS, CNS, and NIHSS. The median RDW values were significantly elevated for patients who had moderate rather than mild strokes rated by GCS and CNS and for patients who had severe rather than mild strokes rated by NIHSS. The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve was 0.760 (95% confidence interval, 0.676–0.844. Separation of stroke patients and control groups was optimal with RDW 14% (sensitivity, 71.6%; specificity, 67.5%; accuracy, 70.3%. Conclusion: In stroke patients who have symptoms <24 hours, the RDW may be useful in predicting the severity and functional outcomes of the stroke

We planned to measure serum ADMA levels in type 2 DM patients using vildagliptin, a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4 inhibitor. Materials and methods: A total of 68 type 2 DM patients who were on metformin were enrolled in the study. Based on the glycemic levels of patients, vildagliptin was added on to treatment in 33 patients. Patients were followed for 6 months. Serum ADMA, C-reactive protein, and fibrinogen levels were compared in groups of patients using metformin or metformin + vildagliptin, after 6 months. Results: Serum ADMA levels were found to be significantly lower in the group using vildagliptin compared to the group using metformin + vildagliptin (P<0.001. However, serum C-reactive protein and fibrinogen levels were statistically similar in the two study groups (P=0.34 and P=0.23, respectively. Conclusion: Metformin + vildagliptin treatment was observed to lower serum ADMA levels in type 2 DM patients. Our findings notwithstanding, large-scale prospective randomized controlled studies are warranted to conclude that vildagliptin provides cardiovascular protection along with diabetes regulation.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: Unintended pregnancies and reasons of occurance should be analysed for socially and economically. The most important reason of unintended pregnancies is defects or failure at using contraception methods. Unintended pregnancies usually ended by dilatation and curratage for termination of pregnancies. The women use this method for limiting the child count and as one of the contraseption methods. Our study’s aims to investigate the frequency of unintended pregnancies at working and unworking women and the reasons of them.\tMaterials-METHODS: 507 healthy women who applied to Afyon Kocatepe University Ahmet Necdet Sezer Research and Training Hospital, Clinic of Obstetrics between July-Agust/2006 at reproductive age were enrolled. Frequency of their unintended pregnancies and the reason of them were asked. A questionnaire form which include 40 questions were used to collect data. The following outcomes were recorded using SPSS for Windows 11,0 programme. P\tRESULTS: This study shows that 44% women were had unintended pregnancy at least once. In our study group 84% women used one of the contraseption methods and 15.9% women didn’t use any methods. Unintended pregnancy frequency of unworking women 53.2 % and working women is 34.7%. The rates of unintended pregnancies in women who had no education were 66.7% and 28.9% in educated women. First unintended pregnancy often ended with 44% alive birth, second and third pregnancies usually ended with curettage.\tCONCLUSION: Contraception methods must be used effectively and correctly to prevent the unintended pregnancies. To make the all pregnancies intended more information about contraseption methods and their usage must be given.

This study presents sociodemographic data of the individuals diagnosed with drug addiction.Methods: In this study, data of the patients between the years of 2009 and 2014 were retrospectively analyzed. The patients were assessed at psychiatry polyclinics according to probation practices of drug abuse. The study involved 513 patients in whom drug positivity was detected in urine analysis at least once and whose diagnoses were confirmed with a clinical interview.Results: According to this study, a majority of the addicts were detected in 2013. Males made up 98.2% of the sample population, their average age was 32.12±10.21 years, and minimum and maximum ages for the first drug use were 7 years and 45 years, respectively. Marijuana use was found in 90.8% of the patients, 90% of them were living with their families, and 59.6% of them held a regular job. Treatment response was related with age of first use of drugs, duration of use drugs, and prior treatment anamnesis of the patients.Conclusion: In this study, it was determined that the drug which was most frequently was used marijuana. The risk of drug addiction can affect any individual in society, regardless of their education, occupation, or social support levels. Alternative treatment models, especially for chronic and long-term users, should be researched. Keywords: addiction, crime, cannabis, substance use

    Full Text Available René Demeurisse (1895-1962 fut un fidèle exposant des Salons parisiens, ces fiefs de l’art vivant où se jouaient la carrière des artistes depuis le XVIIe siècle. Ce peintre figuratif de la génération du feu, élève d’Albert Besnard et ami du sculpteur animalier François Pompon, était membre associé de la Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts créée en 1890. Les plus grands noms de l’Ecole française, dont Auguste Rodin et Antoine Bourdelle, y participèrent avant la création du Salon d’Automne. En 1921, Demeurisse fut chargé avec Henri le Sidaner du placement d’un millier de toiles au Salon de la Nationale des Beaux-Arts. Cette tâche passionnante et ingrate était un exercice périlleux. Tous les artistes du Salon souhaitaient être exposés le plus visiblement possible, dans la salle bénéficiant des plus beaux éclairages et de la meilleure fréquentation afin de vendre leur œuvre et d’être cités dans la presse. Il y aurait les élus et les autres, ceux dont les envois plus médiocres finiraient dans les recoins obscurs du Grand Palais. Les archives du peintre conservent notamment trois lettres remarquables d’exposants exprimant leurs désirs d’accrochage qui apportent un éclairage nouveau sur la question du rôle des placeurs. Ces documents totalement inédits révèlent une facette méconnue de l’organisation du Salon et du tempérament d’un artiste dont le principal mérite était la sincérité.

    Full Text Available The paper presents the stages and the operations involved in the preservation and restoration of two icons on wooden support, from the XIX-th century, which are part of the heritage of the ”Sfinții Arhangheli Mihail and Gavriil” church, from Galați. The two icon have inventory numbers as part of the collection as followed: 112 for the first icon and 113 for the second one. Both icons have the same theme, ”The Grieving Mother from Rohia” and are made by anonymous painters in egg tempera, on lime wooden support, without ground. Being part of the same collection, they were deposited in the same place and as a direct consequence, they suffer from similar deteriorations and degradations that affect both the support and the painting layer. Both panels are attacked by xylophagous insects and the painting layer has detachments, gaps, cracks, clogged dirt and a cracked and degraded varnish layer. Ten samples taken from the already detached areas were analyzed by optical microscope, SEM-EDX and micro-FTIR. Based on the chemical elements identified in the EDX spectrums, the pigments used to create the painting layer are: ultramarine natural blue Na8-10Al6Si6O24S2-4, carbon black, earth green, K[(Al,FeIII,(FeII,Mg](AlSi3,Si4O10(OH2, ocher (FeO, burned or natural umber Fe2O3· H2O + MnO2·n H2O+ Al2O3, lead white (2PbCO3·Pb(OH2 and yellow iron oxide (Fe2O3·4H2O. It was also determined that the gold leaf usually used in byzantine icons was replaced in the case of both icons: the icon number 112 has silver leaf covered with varnish, while the halo of the icon number 113 was created with yellow metallic pigments (realgar or orpigment.The pigments were also identified by determining specific peaks in micro-FTIR spectrums. For natural ultramarine blue the peaks between 628 - 724 cm-1 were assigned; the peaks in the interval 795 - 887 cm-1 confirm the presence of carbonates (calcium and lead based.

The drugs, drug groups, and number of drugs that the patients used were recorded. Appropriate drug therapy was identified by both CGA and STOPP/START criteria. Based on these criteria, PIMs were discontinued and PPOs were started. The monthly cost of these drugs was calculated separately for PIMs and PPOs by using the drugstore records.Results: After CGA, while the prevalence of non-polypharmacy was increased from 43.3% to 65.6%, the prevalence of polypharmacy and hyperpolypharmacy was decreased from 56.7% to 34.4% and 12.0% to 3.6%, respectively. The three most common PIMs discontinued were proton pump inhibitors, anti-dementia drugs, and antipsychotics, respectively. However, the most common PPOs started were vitamin D and B12 supplements, and anti-depressants. After CGA, monthly saved total per capita cost of PIMs was US$12.8 and monthly increased total per capita cost of PPOs was $5.6.Conclusion: It was demonstrated that prevalence of polypharmacy, PIM, and PPO could be decreased by CGA including START/STOPP criteria in older adults. Furthermore, this will have beneficial effects on

Although there have been recent developments in understanding the pathophysiology of RLS, the exact mechanism of the disease has not been well elucidated. An increased prevalence of neurologic and psychiatric diseases involving dopaminergic dysfunction in vitamin D-deficient patients led us to hypothesize that vitamin D deficiency might result in dopaminergic dysfunction and consequently, the development of RLS (in which dopaminergic dysfunction plays a pivotal role. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between vitamin D deficiency and RLS. Methods: One hundred and fifty-five consecutive patients, 18–65 years of age, who were admitted to the Department of Internal Medicine with musculoskeletal symptoms and who subsequently underwent neurological and electromyography (EMG examination by the same senior neurologist, were included in this study. The patients were divided into two groups according to serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OHD (a vitamin D metabolite used as a measure of vitamin D status level: 36 patients with serum 25(OHD levels ≥20 ng/mL comprised the normal vitamin D group, and 119 patients with serum 25(OHD levels <20 ng/mL comprised the vitamin D deficiency group. The two groups were compared for the presence of RLS and associated factors. Results: The two groups were similar in terms of mean age, sex, mean body mass index (BMI, and serum levels of calcium, phosphate, alkaline phosphatase (ALP, and ferritin. The presence of RLS was significantly higher in the vitamin D deficiency group (χ2=12.87, P<0

The participants were examined by single-voxel 1H MRS when medication naïve and 30 minutes after oral administration of 10 mg methylphenidate (Mph. Those who had been on a stimulant discontinued the medication 48 hours before MRS imaging. Spectra were taken from the anterior cingulate cortex, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, striatum, and cerebellum, and N-acetylaspartate (NAA, choline, and creatine levels were examined. For genotyping of the synapsin III gene polymorphisms, DNA was isolated from peripheral blood leukocytes.

Its incidence differs among the societies, with an incidence reported to reach up to 20% in developed countries. Eczema is the first allergic disease seen in the childhood, and it is recognized as a precursor for the development of atopic diseases such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, and food allergy in the forthcoming years of children. Increased incidence of eczema in recent years has led to new research in epidemiology, prevention, and intervention of this disease. It is no doubt important to treat itching, rash, and excoriation of the skin; however, treatment of pediatric eczema should not be considered only as a treatment of skin lesions. Considering skin treatment as the tip of the iceberg, proper management of the allergic processes can be accepted as the rest of the iceberg. The role of probiotics in the prevention of atopic eczema is yet to be clarified. Evidence presented by existing studies suggesting that probiotics may prevent pediatric eczema is not strong enough. A positive effect, if any, may be related with onset time, dose, duration, and use of specific probiotics. To date, there is no strong evidence for use of probiotics in the treatment of eczema; however, administration of probiotics in breast-feeding mothers in the prenatal period and in infants in the postnatal period can be accepted as a safe and helpful option in the prevention of eczema. Nevertheless, there are still questions to be answered in the future about probiotic administration for eczema. Clinical use of probiotics will gradually become more widespread when these questions are answered. Based on current information, the administration

    The aim of this study was to identify gram-negative anaerobic bacilli isolated from various clinical specimens that were obtained from patients with suspected anaerobic infections and to determine the antibiotic resistance profiles by using the antibiotic concentration gradient method. The study was performed in Afyon Kocatepe University Ahmet Necdet Sezer Research and Practice Hospital, Medical Microbiology Laboratory between 1 November 2014 and 30 October 2015. Two hundred and seventyeight clinical specimens accepted for anaerobic culture were enrolled in the study. All the samples were cultivated anaerobically by using Schaedler agar with 5% defibrinated sheep blood and Schaedler broth. The isolated anaerobic gram-negative bacilli were identified by using both the conventional methods and automated identification system (VITEK 2, bioMerieux, France). Antibiotic susceptibility tests were performed with antibiotic concentration gradient method (E-test, bioMerieux, France); against penicillin G, clindamycin, cefoxitin, metronidazole, moxifloxacin, imipenem, meropenem, ertapenem and doripenem for each isolate. Of the 28 isolated anaerobic gram-negative bacilli; 14 were identified as Bacteroides fragilis group, 9 were Prevotella spp., and 5 were Fusobacterium spp. The highest resistance rate was found against penicillin (78.5%) and resistance rates against clindamycin and cefoxitin were found as 17.8% and 21.4%, respectively. No resistance was found against metronidazole, moxifloxacin, imipenem, meropenem, ertapenem and doripenem. As a result, isolation and identification of anaerobic bacteria are difficult, time-consuming and more expensive when compared with the cost of aerobic culture. The rate of anaerobic bacteria isolation may be increased by obtaining the appropriate clinical specimen and appropriate transportation of these specimens. We believe that the data obtained from the study in our center may offer benefits for the follow up and treatment of infections

Pre- and postoperative macular examinations were assessed with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. 23 G sutureless PPV and ILM peeling with BB was performed on all patients.Results: The mean age of patients was 63.34 ± 9.6 years. Stage 2 macular hole was determined in 17 eyes (34%, stage 3 in 24 eyes (48%, and stage 4 in 9 eyes (18%. The mean follow-up time was 13.6 ± 1.09 months. Anatomic closure was detected in 46/50 eyes (92%, whereas, in four cases, macular hole persisted and a second operation was not required due to subretinal fluid drainage. At follow-up after 2 months, persistant macular hole was detected in one case and it was closed with reoperation. At 12 months, an increase in visual acuity in 41 eyes was observed, while it remained at the same level in six eyes. In three eyes visual acuity decreased. There was a postoperative statistically significant increase in visual acuity in stage 2 and 3 cases (P < 0.05, however, no increase in visual acuity in stage 4 cases was observed.Conclusion: PPV and ILM peeling in stage 2, 3, and 4 macular hole cases provide successful anatomic outcomes, however, in delayed cases, due to photoreceptor loss, it has no effect on functional recovery. BB, used for clarity of ILM, may be beneficial due to its low retinal toxicity.Keywords: macular

    Full Text Available In Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar’s novel called Saatleri Ayarlama Enstitüsü, which was released in 1962, the process of modernisation of Turkish society has been written in an ironic manner. The novel's plot is based on memories of protagonist Hayri İrdal. In this work of art concepts such as history, economics, bureaucracy, science, philosophy, superstition, family, female, East vs. West have been considered in the "old-new" mentality and it’s been pointed out that the fundamental changes behind these took place very rapidly. In the novel, the last period of the Ottoman Empire and the first half period of the Republic have been constructed and during this time the change in the family structure is demonstrated. The author presents the developments or changes in the family institution parallel to the developments in the society where the family is connected to and plays the role of its core. However, understanding the differences between families belonging to different generations and social developments, trends are being linked sometimes directly, sometimes indirectly. As known, the following process can take place in society: an example of any change in the social structure or an old development, then these conditions preparing this development with some factors, after that the trend towards the new influenced by the same conditions and then the new replacing the old can happen. It could be said that kind of process takes place in Saatleri Ayarlama Enstitüsü. In the novel, the Ottoman Turkish family structures have been put into three different groups: first the traditional families, then the group experiencing the pressure of traditional although being devoted to it and last the ones who are in the transition period from old to new or the reflector of the modern families.

They sent settlers to the island who brought their own way of life, beliefs, culture and traditions together with them; thus forming a new society. „Karagoz‟, „Meddah‟ and „Ortaoyunu‟ were a part of thisculture and tradition. The Ottomans, having ruled Cyprus for 300years, rented the island to the British in 1878 and then completelyhanded over the island to them in 1914. Newspapers started to bepublished in this era, since 1980‟s. Like other literary types, firstexamples relating to theatre were also seen in the newspapers. In thefirst humour-based newspaper „Kokonoz‟ published by Ahmet TevfikEfedi, some of his own writings had theatrical characteristics. In thesecond humour-based newspaper by him, „Akbaba‟, there was apublication of an incomplete theatre production. L.

The first published theatre production, as it is known to-date,is Kaytazade Nazim‟s writings entitled “ Safa Yahut Netice-i Ibtila”. Thetheme of this production, which was published in 1909 in Nicosia atMirat-ı Zaman Printing House, relates to a love adventure in Istanbulduring „Mesrutiyet‟ years. The story revolves around Safa, a Pasha‟sson, who falls in love with their maid; how he stands against his family,and the bitter end of this love affair between Safa and his lover.

    those with minimum sizes, such as rock lumps. They reflect primarily the degradation of megablocks as a result of their destruction due to high stresses in excess of the tensile strength of the medium. This group may also include blocks which formation is related to convection in the upper mantle layer, asthenosphere. There are grounds to assume that through the vast intermediate interval of geologic time, including supercycles of Kenorlend, Rodin, and and partically Pangea, the formation of the large lithospheric blocks was controlled by convection, and later on, they were 'fragmented' under the physical laws of destruction of solid bodies. However, it is difficult to clearly distinguish between the processes that predetermine the hierarchy of formation of the block structures of various origins – sizes of ancient lithospheric blocks cannot be estimated unambiguously.Thus, mantle convection is a genetic endogenous source of initial divisibility of the cooling upper cover of the Earth and megablock divisibility of the lithosphere in the subsequent and recent geodynamic development stages. At the present stage, regular patterns of the lithospheric block divisibility of various scales are observed at all the hierarchic levels. The areas of the lithospheric megaplates result from regular changes of convective processes in the mantle, which influenced the formation of plates and plate kinematics. Fragmentation of the megaplates into smaller ones is a result of destruction of the solid lithosphere under the physical laws of destruction of solid bodies under the impact of high stresses.

CÍL: Studie měla za cíl analyzovat důvody rodičů a zájmy spojené se zápisem jejich dětí do kurzů sjezdového lyžování a stanovit, jak vzdělání rodičů a jejich měsíční příjem ovlivňují četnost, s jakou jejich děti navštěvují lyžařské kurzy. METODY: Provedli jsme průzkum mezi 250 rodiči dětí ve věku 6–8 let, a to za použití dotazníku se 17 proměnnými. Byly vypočítány frekvenční a kontingentační tabulky. Statistická váha vztahů mezi proměnnými byla ověřena kontingentačním koeficientem. VÝSLEDKY: Výsledky ukázaly, že polovina rodičů alespoň jednou zapsala své dítě do kurzu sjezdového lyžování. Rodiče s vyšším vzděláním a vyšším měsíčním příjmem zapisují své děti do kurzů sjezdového lyžování častěji. Osoba, která v rámci rodiny navrhuje, aby se dítě zapsalo do takového kurzu, je většinou otec. Ve více než polovině rodin oba rodiče lyžují; ovšem tři čtvrtiny rodin spolu nikdy nechodí lyžovat nebo toto praktikují jen zřídka. Otcové hodnotí své lyžařské dovednosti lépe než matky. Důvod nejčastěji uváděný v souvislosti s tím, proč dané dítě nebylo zapsáno do kurzu sjezdového lyžování, byly finanční obtíže. Důvody rodičů pro to, aby se jejich děti naučily lyžovat, byly tyto: více než polovina rodičů si myslí, že by se jejich děti měly naučit dobře lyžovat, a 30 % rodičů přisuzuje velkou důležitost bezpečnosti na lyžařských svazích. Pouze 5 % rodičů by chtělo, aby se jejich dítě účastnilo lyžařských závodů. ZÁVĚRY: Naše zjištění pomohou organizátorům lyžařských kurzů l

    Full Text Available Floating islands arouse the attention of the scientists with their various featuers. Primarily, they can be distinguished from their environment with their rich flora and fauna. Since they generally emerge in the lakes as wetlands they always keep the eyes of the people on themselwes. These wetlands are also the most suitable places to observe the corruptions in the ecosystem both by natural and homone factors. Not only the optimum mixture of inorganic and organic minerals under the favorable climatic circumstances are taking places in these marshes, but also dense and rich wetland plants grow in these places due to phosphate that takes place in inorganic minerals and nitrate taken from the atmosphere. In our country, the number of the cities having floating islands is 8. but in various districts of our country there are anumber of marshes and wetlands in various sizes. So, since the researches expand, the number of floating islands wiil grow. An example to the recently discovered floating islands is Ahmediye Floating Island. Having been in the territory of Erzincan City. Ahmediye Floating Island have many different features. At the some time, it is biggest floating island known not only in our country but also in the world. Another interesting point related to this island is; although it is very close to the city centre of Erzincan, it has not been realized or discovered by the people. Even the the residents of the Ahmetli (Ahmediye village in which this floating island exists do not have any information about it. This acpects did not escape notice dwing our researches in the region. On the other hand, the villagers interfere the ecosystem of the lake in which the floating island takes place; by opening a canal on the South side of the lake in order to prevent the expansion of the lake when the water level rises. Oluşumları ve gelişimleri bakımından oldukça ilginç özelliklere sahip olan yüzenadalar, son yıllarda çeşitli bilim dallar

    Full Text Available Türk bahçesi üzerinde Batı etkisinin görülmeye başladığı dönem “lale devri”’dir. İdare ve siyasi yönden bir gerileme başlangıcı olan bu dönem kısalığına rağmen, güzel sanatlar ve peyzaj açısından önemlidir. III. Ahmet başta olmak üzere devlet büyükleri ve zenginlerinin yaptırdıkları, kağıthane vadisinden başlayarak, Haliç ve Boğaz kıyılarına yayılan sayısız sahil-saray, saray, köşk ve yalıların bahçe ve koruları ile İstanbul bir “bahçe ve su şehri” görünümüne bürünmüştür. Avrupa’da Rönesans ve Barok bahçe modası yerini İngiliz natüralist bahçelerine bırakırken, Türk bahçesi Barok bahçelerinin güzellik ve ihtişamı ile büyülenmekte idi. Bu devrin en karakteristik eserleri Topkapı Sarayı bahçeleri ve Üsküdar Sarayları’nın bahçeleri olarak karşımıza çıkmıştır. Osmanlı mimarisinin Avrupa etkilerine açılması, 28. Mehmet Çelebi’nin 1720-1721 yılları arasında Fransa’yı ziyareti ile başlayan bir girişimin dolaylı ürünü olmuştur. Bu devirde şiir, edebiyat ve müzikle birlikte bahçe sanatında da büyük gelişmeler olmuş, saray ekranı İstanbul’da manzaraya hakim güzel yerlerde bahçeli saray, köşk ve yalılar yaptırarak zevkü sefa sürmeye başlamışlar. Bunların arasında Beşiktaş’taki Çırağan Sarayı ile Kağıthane Vadisi’ndeki Sadatabad Sarayı ve Üçyüz Köşk bu döneme ait en önemli örnekler olarak değerlendirilmiştir. Lale devri mimarisinde doğrudan doğruya Batı’dan aktarılan “biçimler” görülmemiş ancak lale devri le birlikte baş gösteren ve genel tasarlama eğiliminde kavranabilen yenilikler olmuştur. Lale devrindeki batıya açılış Türk bahçelerinde de benzer düzenlemelerin ortaya çıkmasına yol açmıştır. 1720’lerdeki Fransız elçisi aracılığı ile bu ülkeden bahçe düzenleyicileri getirilmiştir. 19.

    ştirilmesi, herhangi bir bilginin, görüşün kalıcılığını sağlamak ve nesiller arasındaki iletişimi kurmak bakımından önemli bir iletişim aracıdır. Yazma becerisi genellikle formel eğitim yoluyla kazandırılan dil becerilerindendir. Dolayısıyla öğrencilere yazma becerisinin kazandırılması, yazmaya yönelik ilgi ve isteklerinin uyandırılmasında temel sorumluluk öğretmenlere özellikle de Türkçe öğretmenlerine düşmektedir. Türkçe öğretmenleri, öğrencilere yazma deneyimleri kazandırmalı, onları yazmaya teşvik etmeli ve sürece etkin katılımlarını sağlamalıdır. Bu sebeple lisans programında Türkçe öğretmenlerinin söz konusu becerisini geliştirilmeye yönelik derslere ihtiyaç vardır. Bu amaçla Eğitim Fakültelerinin Türkçe Eğitimi bölümü üçüncü sınıf programında Yazma Eğitimi dersine yer verilmiştir.Bu çalışmanın amacı, Türkçe öğretmeni adaylarının Yazma Eğitimi dersine yönelik tutumlarını belirlemektir. Türkçe öğretmeni adaylarının Yazma Eğitimi dersine yönelik tutumlarını tespit etmek için 37 maddelik bir tutum ölçeği hazırlanmıştır. Ölçek, 2011-2012 eğitim öğretim yılında Necmettin Erbakan Üniversitesi Ahmet Keleşoğlu Eğitim Fakültesi Türkçe Öğretmenliği Bölümü’nde öğrenim gören 137 üçüncü sınıf öğrencisine uygulanmıştır.Türkçe öğretmeni adaylarının Yazma Eğitimi dersine yönelik tutumları genel itibariyle olumludur. Ayrıca ölçekten elde edilen bulgular; cinsiyet, öğrenim türü ve ders başarı notlarına göre değerlendirilmiştir.Araştırma sonuçlarına göre, Türkçe öğretmeni adaylarının Yazma Eğitimi dersine yönelik tutumları cinsiyete ve ders başarı notuna göre anlamlı bir farklılık göstermiştir.

    University-Community Partnerships (UCPs by giving samples on SL milieu. The study briefly demystifies 3D interaction in virtual reality. The dimensions of immersive learning and learner-course owner (instructor interaction are explored within the theoretical frame of Mindtool Model and Interaction-Communication Theory. The foundations of learning and communication are appraised on a matrix from which semi-structured and open-ended survey questions are formulated. The SL platform is assessed in terms of qualitative analyses of matrix based-foundations which are sent to four (4 distance education experts across the world. With the survey responses collected on a voluntary basis, 189 themes and 185 main themes on learner-course owner interaction are generated. The results demonstrate that Second Life as a learning mindtool uses Internet-based distance learning technologies effectively; however, it still needs appropriate andragogical adjustments for the efficacy of online interaction. The fifteenth article is titled as “THE NATURE OF USING VIRTUAL WORLDS BY A CHILD AS A LEARNING PLATFORM: A Case Study”, written by Ahmet BAYTAK, from Harran University, Sanlıurfa, Turkey. His artile is focused on that the development of new technologies is found inevitable and children interests toward online platforms and virtual worlds are rapidly growing. The purpose of his study also cannot be narrowed down to a single sentence but the overarching aim of the study is to explore the nature of using virtual worlds as a learning platform during. The theoretical background of this study is rooted from the constructivism and constructionism learning approaches. Consisted with its theoretical framework, this study has followed a qualitative case study research method to explore the nature of the construct. The case is a bounded system that is narrowed to a single case (Merriam, 1988; Stake, 1995; Yin, 2003. There are various types of data collected within this system. Based on the data
