    mulighed for at kunne overskue byggeri og dermed den information, der er det bærende element. Der er dog sjældent en fuldstændig gnidningsfri overgang fra en tradition til en ny, og at introducere en helt ny tankegang, har med DDB vist sig at være vanskeligere end antaget. Specielt vanskeligt bliver det......, strukturering og analyser ud fra kvantificerbare data. Det benægtes på ingen måde at dette kan være en stor hjælp i mange af de situationer man som arkitekt står over for, men det er dog bekymrende hvis denne resultatorienterede logik, kommer til at overskygge de beregningsmæssigt vanskeligt afvejelige former...... regler og rutiner. Den tilsyneladende eneste mulighed for at kunne rumme hele verden i et system, er at reducere forståelsen af verden til akkurat det der kan rummes i systemet. Denne reduktion risikerer dog at måtte udelade nogle af de afgørende aspekter ved kognition. Denne erkendelse har ført til en...

  17. Anvendelse af MIP ved kildekarakterisering og vurdering af nedbrydning af chlorerede opløsningsmidler

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Broholm, Mette Martina; Janniche, Gry Sander; Damgaard, Ida;

    2014-01-01

    Membrane Interface Probing (MIP) er et 'direct push' screeningsværktøj, som kan anvendes ved karakterisering af forurenede grunde. Karakterisering af kildeområder med chlorerede opløsningsmidler (som DNAPL) udgør et vigtigt led i udviklingen af den konceptuelle forståelse, som er essentiel...... for risikovurdering og valg af afværgestrategi. Integreret karakterisering med en række metoder for direkte såvel som indirekte dokumentation af DNAPL i moræneler, herunder MIP, er beskrevet i Kerrn-Jespersen et al. (2013). Det samlede DNAPL-karakteriseringsprojekt er beskrevet i detaljer i Janniche et al. (2013). En...... vurdering af anvendte detektorer for MIP er foretaget af Olsson (2013). Ved karakterisering af forurening med bl.a. chlorerede opløsningsmidler er der behov for en vurdering af forureningssammensætning og nedbrydning. Tilsvarende vurdering er nødvendig, når udviklingen af stimuleret reduktiv dechlorering...

  10. Epidemiologi ved systemisk lupus erythematosus (SLE

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Inge-Margrethe Gilboe

    2009-10-01

    Full Text Available Det er utført få epidemiologiske studier av SLE i Norge. De studier som er utført viser liknende hyppighet og forekomst av SLE i Norge som i de øvrige nordiske land og forekomst av mild sykdom med en lav andel av alvorlig indre organ manifestasjoner. Insidens og prevalens er kartlagt i Nord-Norge visende en lavere insidens enn i de øvrige nordiske land, mens prevalensen er sammenliknbar. Tall fra Sverige tyder på stabil insidens, men økende prevalens, forenelig med økt overlevelse. Norske og nordiske studier viser høy kvinneandel og sammenliknbar alder ved diagnose. Studiene tyder på en høyere alder ved diagnose i Skandinavia enn i USA og England. Ut fra de nordiske studier er overlevelsen ved SLE god, selv om den er lavere enn i den generelle befolkningen. Overlevelse i de nordiske og europeiske land er sammenliknbare.Selv om overlevelsen ved SLE er betydelig bedret over tid utgjorde aktiv SLE og infeksjoner 50% av dødsårsakene i den danske mortalitetsstudien. Aterosklerotisk hjerte-karsykdom var en hyppig dødsårsak i alle studiene. Kardiovaskulær sykdom som hovedårsak til død ved SLE er påvist i den store internasjonale studien hvor pasienter fra Island og Sverige deltok og i andre europeiske og internasjonale studier. Betydelig økt risiko for hjerteinfarkt hos unge SLE-kvinner i Sverige er også påvist tidligere i internasjonale studier og styrker teorien om at SLE per ce er en selvstendig risikofaktor for aterosklerose. Det er ønskelig med flere epidemiologiske studier av SLE i Norge.There has been few studies on the epidemiology of SLE in Norway. The studies that have been conducted show similar frequency and occurence of SLE in Norway in comparison to the other Nordic countries, and mainly occurence of mild disease with only a low proportion suffering severe internal organ involvement. Studies on incidence and prevalence in the northern part of Norway show a lower incidence than in other Nordic countries, but a

  14. Verdsetting av brukermedvirkning ved utforming av skoleanlegg

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Else Margrethe Lefdal

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available Ved planlegging av offentlige bygninger i Norge forutsettes det at brukerne medvirker i prosessen. Dette er forankret i lov- og avtaleverk og motiveres ved at brukerne innehar en kompetanse som er av betydning for byggenes funksjonalitet. I denne artikkelen vil jeg belyse brukermedvirkningsproblematikk i planleggingen av et skoleanlegg for videregående opplæring. Tilgjengelige plan- og byggesaksdokumenter i den aktuelle fylkeskommunens digitale og fysiske arkiver er blitt analysert. I referater fra brukermøtene fremmes det for eksempel ønsker fra brukerne om begrenset bruk av glass. Det ferdige skole-anlegget har imidlertid utstrakt bruk av innvendige glassvegger, men det er ikke dokumentert diskusjoner knyttet til bestemmelsen av dette. Et profesjons- og maktperspektiv er relevant for å forstå hva som blir verdsatt, og hvilke strukt-urer og mekanismer som har påvirket planleggings­prosessen. De sentrale aktørgruppene er skoleeier og representantene for lærer- og arkitekt-profesjonen. Omfattende bruk av innvendig glass i skoleanlegget tolker jeg som et kompromiss mellom skoleeiers ønske om åpenhet og kontroll, lærernes ønske om mindre støy og arkitektens ønske om å skape romfølelse og visuelle siktlinjer.AbstractWhen planning public buildings in Norway, it is expected that users are involved in the process. This is grounded in legislation and agreements, and motivated by the idea that users have an expertise which is significant for the planning of the building’s functionality. The aim of this article is to investigate user participation in planning the school facilities for a secondary school. I have analyzed planning and building documents available in government records, digital and physical. In the reports from meetings with user groups, it is for example stated that users want to limit the use of glass. However, the completed school building has extensive use of glass dividing walls, but any discussions leading to this

    2009-10-01

    Full Text Available Bakgrunn: Norsk medisinsk forskning hevder seg dårlig i nordisk sammenheng. Ved Universitetssykehuset Nord-Norge (UNN ble forskningsaktivitet og hindringer for klinisk forskning undersøkt med en spørreskjemaundersøkelse i år 2000. Denne undersøkelsen er nå gjentatt etter fem år for å se om forholdene er endret.Materiale og metode: Alle leger og psykologer ved UNN fikk i mai 2005 tilsendt det samme spørreskjemaet som ble brukt i år 2000.Resultater: Etter purring hadde 433 (82% av 530 spurte svart. 48% deltok i et pågående forskningsprosjekt (38% i et prosjekt som kvalifiserte til medforfatterskap, 5% i et prosjekt initiert av industrien, 5% i begge typer prosjekter. 22% av de spurte oppgav å ha doktorgrad, 28% hadde publisert i fagfellevurdert tidsskrift uten å ha doktorgrad, mens 28% ikke hadde publisert i slike tidsskrifter. Av faktorer som hindret forskning eller økt forskningsaktivitet, angav 84% mangel på tid, 52% faktorer som potensielt kunne avhjelpes av sykehusets apparat for forskningsstøtte og 35% andre faktorer. Uttrykt i prosentandeler var det små endringer i svarene i forhold til år 2000.Fortolkning: Det har ikke skjedd noen endring i andelen ansatte engasjert i forskning ved UNN fra 2000 til 2005. Fortsatt oppleves mangel på tid som den viktigste hindringen for forskning

    Full Text Available Omfanget av helsepersonells reservasjonsrett har nylig vært gjenstand for debatt i Norge. Vi spør om leger bør ha reservasjonsrett ved utførelse og henvisning til assistert befruktning, og drøfter argumenter for og imot ved hjelp av et rammeverk med sju kriterier for vurdering av reservasjon. Reservasjonsrettens grunnleggende dilemma er hvordan to viktige hensyn, henholdsvis pasientens rett til behandling og hensynet til helsepersonellets moralske integritet, best kan ivaretas. Det argumenteres for at leger bør ha rett til å reservere seg mot å utføre, assistere ved og henvise til assistert befruktning generelt hvis begrunnelsen er hensynet til befruktede eggs moralske verdi. Videre finner vi at leger også kan ha en moralsk rett til reservasjon mot å utføre, assistere ved og henvise til assistert befruktning for likekjønnede, men da på nærmere spesifiserte vilkår.Nøkkelord: reservasjonsrett, assistert befruktning, samvittighet, moralsk integritetEnglish summary: Should physicians have the right to conscientiously object to assisted reproduction?The extent of the healthcare worker's right to conscientious objection has recently been debated in Norway. This article asks whether physicians should have a right to conscientious objection to the performance of, and referral for, assisted reproduction, and discusses arguments for and against the same, utilizing a framework of seven criteria for the evaluation of conscientious objection. The fundamental dilemma of conscientious objection is how two important considerations can be reconciled: the patient's right to treatment, and the protection of the healthcare worker's moral integrity. It is argued that physicians should have the right to object to performing, assisting with, and referring for assisted reproduction generally when the objection is grounded in the moral value of the embryo. Furthermore, physicians may also have a moral right to object to performing, assisting with, and

  11. Life and consciousness - The Vedāntic view.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Shanta, Bhakti Niskama

    2015-01-01

    In the past, philosophers, scientists, and even the general opinion, had no problem in accepting the existence of consciousness in the same way as the existence of the physical world. After the advent of Newtonian mechanics, science embraced a complete materialistic conception about reality. Scientists started proposing hypotheses like abiogenesis (origin of first life from accumulation of atoms and molecules) and the Big Bang theory (the explosion theory for explaining the origin of universe). How the universe came to be what it is now is a key philosophical question. The hypothesis that it came from Nothing (as proposed by Stephen Hawking, among others), proves to be dissembling, since the quantum vacuum can hardly be considered a void. In modern science, it is generally assumed that matter existed before the universe came to be. Modern science hypothesizes that the manifestation of life on Earth is nothing but a mere increment in the complexity of matter - and hence is an outcome of evolution of matter (chemical evolution) following the Big Bang. After the manifestation of life, modern science believed that chemical evolution transformed itself into biological evolution, which then had caused the entire biodiversity on our planet. The ontological view of the organism as a complex machine presumes life as just a chance occurrence, without any inner purpose. This approach in science leaves no room for the subjective aspect of consciousness in its attempt to know the world as the relationships among forces, atoms, and molecules. On the other hand, the Vedāntic view states that the origin of everything material and nonmaterial is sentient and absolute (unconditioned). Thus, sentient life is primitive and reproductive of itself - omne vivum ex vivo - life comes from life. This is the scientifically verified law of experience. Life is essentially cognitive and conscious. And, consciousness, which is fundamental, manifests itself in the gradational forms of all

  6. Performance of viscoelastic dampers (VED) under various temperatures and application of magnetorheological dampers (MRD) for seismic control of structures

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bhatti, Abdul Qadir

    2013-08-01

    A number of studies have been carried out to investigate the performance of viscoelastic dampers (VEDs) and magnetorheological dampers (MRDs) in controlling the seismic response of buildings, but very few of them regarding the effect of temperature on the behavior of those dampers. The energy absorption properties of the VEDs are dependent on the ambient temperature, excitation frequency and strain amplitude. Several mathematical models have been investigated for reproducing the experimental behavior of single degree of freedom VEDs and MEDs. Of these, only the fractional derivative model can reflect the influence of temperature which is, however, so complex that it is difficult to apply in structural analysis. In order to verify the effect of temperature, two case studies of structural element have been conducted: once using VED and once using MRD. Kelvin-Voigt mathematical model applied, they were investigated and after analyzing the results, the force vs. displacement showed that MRD achieved a high force capacity and a better performance than VED. Furthermore, the effect of the temperature in case of VED observed via plotting the dissipated energy hysteresis at different temperatures. These results validate the effect of the temperature as the lower the temperature the more viscous the dashpot element becomes, hence improving damping, but this is up to a specific low temperature.

  7. A novel repressor-type homeobox gene, ved, is involved in dharma/bozozok-mediated dorsal organizer formation in zebrafish.

    2002-10-01

    Dharma/Bozozok (Dha/Boz) is a homeodomain protein containing an Engrailed homology (Eh) 1 repressor motif. It is important in zebrafish dorsal organizer formation. Dha/Boz interacted with a co-repressor Groucho through the Eh1 motif. Expression of a Dha/Boz fused to the transcriptional activator VP16 repressed dorsal axis formation and the expression of organizer genes but led to the dorsal expansion of expression of the homeobox gene vox/vega1, indicating that Dha/Boz functions as a transcriptional repressor for dorsal axis formation. We also isolated a novel homeobox gene, ved, whose expression was negatively regulated by dha/boz. ved's sequence and expression profile were similar to those of vox/vega1 and vent/vega2. Like Vox/Vega1 and Vent/Vega2, Ved acted as a transcriptional repressor. The combined inhibition of ved, vox/vega1, and vent/vega2, by antisense morpholino injection, strongly dorsalized the embryos and elicited ventral expansion of organizer gene expression, compared with the effect of inhibiting each of these genes alone. These results suggest that ved is a target for the repressor Dha/Boz. Ved functions redundantly with vox/vega1 and vent/vega2 to restrict the organizer domain.

    The ABC and VED (vital, essential, desirable) analysis of the pharmacy store of Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, India, was conducted to identify the categories of items needing stringent management control. The annual consumption and expenditure incurred on each item of pharmacy for the year 2007-08 was analyzed and inventory control techniques, i.e. ABC, VED and ABC-VED matrix analysis, were applied. The drug formulary of the pharmacy consisted of 421 items. The total annual drug expenditure (ADE) on items issued in 2007-08 was Rs. 40,012,612. ABC analysis revealed 13.78%, 21.85% and 64.37% items as A, B and C category items, respectively, accounting for 69.97%, 19.95% and 10.08% of ADE of the pharmacy. VED analysis showed 12.11%, 59.38% and 28.51% items as V, E, and D category items, respectively, accounting for 17.14%, 72.38% and 10.48% of ADE of the pharmacy. On ABC-VED matrix analysis, 22.09%, 54.63% and 23.28% items were found to be category I, II and III items, respectively, accounting for 74.21%, 22.23% and 3.56% of ADE of the pharmacy. The ABC and VED techniques need to be adopted as a routine practice for optimal use of resources and elimination of out-of-stock situations in the hospital pharmacy.

    2005-01-01

    The present study aimed to evaluate the side-effects and efficacy of thalidomide in combination with an anthracycline-containing chemotherapy regimen in previously untreated myeloma patients. Thalidomide (400 mg/d) was combined with bolus injections of vincristine and epirubicin and oral dexamethasone (VED). Chemotherapy cycles were repeated every 3 wk until no further reduction in myeloma protein was observed, whereas the treatment with thalidomide was continued until disease progression. Thirty-one patients were enrolled, 12 patients were exclusively treated with thalidomide in combination with VED and 19 patients additionally received high-dose melphalan, for consolidation. Adverse events and response to therapy were assessed prior to treatment with high-dose chemotherapy. Response to thalidomide combined with VED was complete remission in six patients (19%), partial remission in 19 patients (61%), stable disease in five patients (16%), and progressive disease in one patient (3.2%). Grade 3 and 4 adverse events consisted of leukocytopenia in 10 patients (32%), and thrombocytopenia and anemia in one patient each (3.2%). Neutropenic infections grade 3 and 4 occurred in seven (23%) and three patients (9.7%), respectively, including two patients (6.5%) who died from septic shock. Deep vein thrombosis occurred in eight patients (26%), constipation in 20 patients (65%), and polyneuropathy in 20 patients (65%). The probability of event-free survival and overall survival in the whole group of patients at 36 months were 26 and 62%, respectively. In conclusion, the combination of thalidomide with VED appears to be highly effective in previously untreated patients with multiple myeloma, but it is associated with a high rate of thrombotic events, polyneuropathy, and neutropenic infections.

  13. Consciousness, cognition and the cognitive apparatus in the Vedānta tradition

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available A human being is a complex entity consisting of the Self (also known as Consciousness, mind, senses and the body. The Vedānta tradition holds that the mind, the senses and the body are essentially different from the Self or Consciousness. It is through consciousness that we are able to know the things of the world, making use of the medium of the mind and the senses. Furthermore, the mind, though material, is able to reveal things, borrowing the light from consciousness. From the phenomenological point of view, we have to answer the following questions: how does one know the mind/the mental operations/the cogitations of the mind? Does the mind know itself? Is it possible? There is, again, the problem of the intentionality of consciousness. Is consciousness intentional? According to Vedānta, consciousness by its very nature is not intentional, but it becomes intentional through the mind. The mind or the ego is not part of the consciousness; on the contrary, it is transcendent to consciousness. It is difficult to spell out the relation between consciousness and the mind. How does consciousness, which is totally different from the mind, get related to the mind in such a way that it makes the latter capable of comprehending the things of the world? The Vedānta tradition provides the answer to this question in terms of the knower-known relation. Consciousness is pure light, self-luminous by its very nature, that is, although it reveals other objects, it is not revealed by anything else. When Sartre describes it as nothingness, bereft of even ego, it is to show that it is pure light revealing objects outside it.

    Full Text Available  SAMMENDRAGOpplysninger om matvarers innhold av energi og næringsstoffer er nødvendig i mange sammenhenger –for overvåking av kostholdet i ulike befolkningsgrupper, for studier av sammenhenger mellom kosthold,livsstil og helse, ved veiledning, undervisning og opplysning om et helsemessig godt kosthold. De flestevestlige land har en trykt matvaretabell som viser næringsinnholdet per 100 g matvare for etrepresentativt utvalg av de vanligste matvarene. Ved næringsberegning av kostholdsundersøkelser brukessom regel spesialtilpassete beregningsdatabaser, disse har ofte ikke-publiserte data i tillegg. Kvaliteten påden beregningsdatabasen som benyttes ved bearbeiding av kostholdsundersøkelser kan ha avgjørendebetydning for resultatene. Det er viktig at den databasen som benyttes blir omtalt i metodeavsnittet nårarbeidet publiseres. Matvaremarkedet endres stadig, fokus rettes mot nye næringsstoffer og analysemetodeneforbedres. Matvaretabellene og databasene må derfor revideres kontinuerlig. Næringsstoffinnholdet imatvarer varierer med sort, rase, fôring, dyrkingsbetingelser, lagring, transport, bearbeiding, oppskrifterog tilberedningsmetode. Siden mange av disse faktorene er forskjellig i forskjellige land, er det nødvendigå ha egne nasjonale matvaretabeller og databaser. For importerte matvarer kan det være forsvarlig å låneutenlandske verdier gitt at varen er av samme type, at håndteringen er lik og at næringsstoffdefinisjonerog analysemetoder er sammenlignbare. Det er viktig å fortsette det internasjonale samarbeidet med ågjøre tabellverk i ulike land sammenlignbare.

  7. Grasping at ontological straws: overcoming reductionism in the Advaita Vedānta-Neuroscience dialogue.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kaplan, Stephen

    2009-01-01

    Contemporary neuropsychology reveals that the parietal lobe contains neurons that are specifically attuned to the act of grasping and this act may be fundamental to the establishment of the phenomenal boundaries between subject and object. Furthermore, alterations to this process, such as the hypoactivation of this region during meditation or the hyperactivation associated with schizophrenia, may eliminate or confuse, respectively, the phenomenal boundaries between subject and object. Traversing disciplines, the Advaita Vedānta school of Hinduism traces some of its key terms for subject and object to the verbal root grah, to grasp. The subject is literally the grasper. Furthermore, the practice of asparśa yoga, the yoga of no-touch, is aimed at stopping, hypoactivating, the grasping process in order to transcend all subject-object boundaries. This paper will argue that while we have not uncovered an identity of thought, we have uncovered a confluence of ideas between these two disciplines. We will see that this confluence of ideas has not pitted the believer against the critic-not forced us into the great reductionism debate that has dominated so much of the interchange between religious studies and the sciences. This case study will illuminate some of the methodological ways around this reductionism battle and also the boundaries of both disciplines for the intellectual benefit of each.

    with recurrent stones, the colics may be more intense due to sensitisation of the nervous system. Furthermore, painful diseases in the reproductive organs can enhance stone colics. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are the first choice for stone colics because they act by reducing the renal pelvic pressure.......Flank pain is common and often associated with stone colics. Similar pain characteristics can, however, be observed in other diseases. Stone colics have all the characteristics of visceral pain. The pain is diffuse, often referred to the body wall and accompanied by autonomic reflexes. In patients...

  9. Utfordringer ved prima vista tolking i asylintervjuer

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tatjana Radanović Felberg

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Every year the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI conducts approximately 10,000 interpreter-mediated asylum interviews in Norway. Each asylum interview ends with the interpreter providing a sight translation of the draft interview report (an oral translation of the text to the asylum seeker. The UDI wished to find out why some interpreters took so much more time than others for sight translation. In response, Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences initiated a pilot project. The project’s working hypothesis was that slow sight translation was due mainly to a combination of three factors: interpreters’ poor reading skills; interpreters’ poor interpreting techniques; and/or interpreters’ unfamiliarity with the appropriate genre/style. A more complex picture emerged, however, from an analysis of 13 asylum interviews; group work involving 108 UDI interpreters; and discussions with UDI specialists. An asylum report is the joint product of all the participants in an asylum interview, who are typically the asylum seeker, the interviewer and the interpreter. The pilot study showed that each participant could contribute in various ways to slowing the speed of sight translation. Contributing factors identified that were unrelated to the interpreter included the interviewer’s competence in interview techniques; the interviewer’s competence in creating a written record of speech; the asylum seeker’s narrative ability; and the asylum seeker’s ability to correct mistakes in the draft report. All these factors may have just as much impact on the speed of sight translation as the interpreter’s competence. In addition, the physical strain caused by the length of asylum interviews (six hours plus and the emotional stress potentially caused by such institutional interviews may affect the communicative abilities of all participants. As sight translation in the public sector is an under-researched area, the article starts with a discussion of terminology and an explanation of the UDI context. It then presents a possible explanation for slowness of sight translation and concludes that there is a need for more research into the various factors relevant to sight translation in the public sector and that there is a need to provide systematic training for both interpreters and interpreter users.

    This is a summary of the health risks of occupational styrene exposure based on recent reviews. We conclude about the exposure levels that there is strong evidence that styrene causes acute irritation of eyes and respiratory tract above 25 ppm, genotoxic effects above 10 ppm, and persistent nervous...... system effects with for instance reduced psychological performance, colour discrimination and hearing level following long-term styrene exposure above 10 ppm. There is moderate evidence of a causal association with cancer, but data are not sufficient to allow us to pinpoint specific cancers at risk...

    The incidence of retention of urine in cases of postoperative epidural opioid analgesia varies from 15% to 90%. The extent to which this phenomenon depends upon the dosage employed has not been elucidated. The cause of postoperative retention of urine (PU) is probably a combination of the central...... and peripheral effect of the opiate involving altered autonomic activity. Increased sympathetic activity resulting from surgery may, similarly, be a pathogenetic factor. The current methods of treatment are prophylactic or symptomatic alpha-receptor blockade, naloxon in refractory doses or catheterization....... Inhibition of per- and postoperatively increased sympathetic activity may possibly prevent PU. Carbacholine is not effective in the treatment of postoperative retention of urine. In animal experimental studies, kappa-receptor agonists have an analgesic effect without urodynamic side-effects but no clinical...

    Full Text Available We have previously described the impact of Apgar scores on later major and minor disabilities. According to these and other studies, children with low Apgar scores have to show symptoms of neonatal encephalopathy in the first week of life to be at risk of developing later disabilities. Information on neonatal encephalopathy has traditionally been less accessible than Apgar scores in The Medical Birth Registry of Norway (MBRN. In the present study the possibility of extracting information on neonatal encephalopathy from the new notification form to the MBRN, which was introduced in late 1998, was investigated. The introduction of specific and generally accepted definitions of neonatal diagnoses combined with more comprehensive reports to MBRN from the neonatal departments may render registry based studies on neonatal encephalopathy possible in the future

    Full Text Available Artiklen tager udgangspunkt i kampagnefilmen ”Tænk. Hvis det er dig”, som var en del af den branding-, vejlednings- og rekrutteringskampagne, som Aarhus Universitet lancerede i 2012, og på baggrund af en analyse af filmens komposition samt billed- og lydside undersøger artiklen, hvordan kampagnefilmen opbygger en handlingsmæssig struktur, som realiserer en grundlæggende metaforisk forståelse af ’uddannelse som en rejse’. Ved hjælp af George Lakoff og Mark Johnsons metaforteori undersøges den anvendte metafors beskaffenhed, struktur og betydning(er, og i artiklen argumenterer vi for en tolkning af den anvendte metafor som ’uddannelse som en moderne dannelsesrejse’. Lakoff og Johnsons metaforteori, som tager udgangspunkt i sproglige tegn, vil i denne artikel blive anvendt på analysen af visuelle tegn, og dermed ønsker vi at demonstrere, at et oprindeligt sproglig-tekstuelt baseret metaforbegreb også kan bidrage til en bedre forst.else af visuel-fi lmiske narrative teknikker.

  6. Selektive utfordringer ved assistert befruktning for personer med Klinefelter syndrom

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bjørn Hofmann

    2008-05-01

    Full Text Available Ny bioteknologi gir nye muligheter som har vist seg å være moralsk utfordrende. Det gjelder særlig innenfor menneskelig reproduksjon, der denne teknologien er spesielt potent. Med virkeliggjøringen av antikkens drøm om å kunne påvirke fremtidige barns egenskaper følger en rekke vanskelige valg. I analysen av og debatten om slike valg har man forsøkt å skille mellom tilvalg og fravalg med hensyn på bestemte egenskaper. Ett konkret eksempel er hvorvidt personer med Klinefelter syndrom skal tilbys assistert befruktning, og det illustrerer at slike skiller kanskje ikke er så dekkende eller viktige for den etiske debatten som man kan få inntrykk av. Andre grunnleggende problemstillinger synes vel så påtrengende. Det betyr ikke at vi må forkaste seleksjonsmodellen. Eksemplet med Klinefelter syndrom stimulerer derimot til å revidere og utvikle den, og det gir føringer for hvordan modellen kan nyanseres og anvendes ut over skillet mellom tilvalg og fravalg. Denne revisjonen kan redusere seleksjonsproblematikkens polemiske kraft, men kanskje også øke dens anvendelse for etikk i praksis.http://dx.doi.org/10.5324/eip.v2i1.1690

    In multitrauma patients continuous bleeding is one of the major killers. Coagulation defects have been shown to be a primary event and to occur very early in multitrauma patients (acute traumatic coagulopathy). It is enhanced by acidosis, hypothermia and further coagulation disorders in the "bloody...... vicious cycle". Due to this a new resuscitation practice has been defined; damage control resuscitation, consisting of hypotensive resuscitation (restricted use of crystalloids), haemostatic resuscitation (balanced use of blood components) in combination with surgical haemostatic procedures (damage...

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Aanderud, Leif; Thorsen, Einar; Bratteboe, Guttorm; Forland, Martha; Kristensen, Gunnar

    2000-07-01

    Background: A national hyperbaric centre was established in 1994 at Haukeland Hospital with responsibility of all hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatment in Norway. In hypoxic tissues with symptomatic radiation reactions, hyperbaric oxygen induces the formation of collagen and angiogenesis resulting in permanently improved local microcirculation. Material and method: 234 patients received elective HBO treatment at Haukeland Hospital in 12997 with total of 4048 treatments. All 47 patients treated for radiation reactions in the pelvic area in 1997 received a questionnaire 3-15 months after HBO therapy, 81% reported. Results: Rectal bleeding and haematuria were reported as much improved in 61% and 55% respectively, while bladder incontinence was much improved in 46%. Interpretation: this treatment modality may be an alternative in symptomatic radiation reactions at the urinary bladder and the bowel when conventional treatment has given unsatisfactory results.

    Anorexia nervosa is associated with multiple endocrine abnormalities. Hypothalamic neuropeptides and monoamines are involved in the regulation of human appetite, and they are changed in several ways in anorexia nervosa. But it remains to be clarified whether these alterations are secondary...... or etiologic. Feeding behaviour in anorexia nervosa is characterised by a strong ambivalence and not by loss of appetite. Hypothalamic amenorrhea is a diagnostic criterion, and is not only secondary as it often precedes the weight loss and persists for a long time after weight and motor activity have returned...... to normal. Hypersecretion of corticotropin releasing hormone seems to be secondary to starvation, but at the same time it may keep up and intensify the anorexia, physical hyperactivity and amenorrhea. Low production of insulinlike growth factor-I and high growth hormone secretion reflects the nutritional...

    INTRODUCTION: It is unclear which professional groups can and should perform reviews of capsule endoscopy (CE) exams of the GI tract. We investigate whether a junior doctor or an endoscopy nurse can review CE films with the same diagnostic results as a specialist. MATERIAL AND METHODS: An endoscopy...... nurse and a junior doctor, both with no CE experience, reviewed 30 CE films twice and noted their findings. A distinction was made between clinically important and non-important findings. An endoscopy specialist and the Given Imaging Review Service reviewed the films once each, and their findings were...... used as the study's gold standard. Time consumption, intra- and interobserver agreement, sensitivity and specificity were assessed. RESULTS: The junior doctor improved in speed from 1st to 2nd review, but the nurse did not. Both performed poorly compared with Given Imaging Review Service regarding...

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Kalialis, Louise Vennegaard; Olsen, Niels Vidiendal

    2003-01-01

    Erythropoietin (EPO) is a cytokine which is commonly associated with its central role in erythropoiesis. The clinical applications of the recombinant hormone are currently restricted to the treatment of anemia in renal failure and cancer. Recent studies, however, have suggested a new role for EPO...... as an anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective drug. EPO and its receptor are expressed in neurons, glial cells and brain capillary endothelial cells, and the system is upregulated in conditions of cerebral ischaemia and hypoxia. Animal studies have now established that intracerebroventricular administration...... of recombinant EPO exerts neuroprotection in models of stroke. The mechanisms appear to involve an upregulation of specific anti-apoptotic and anti-inflammatory pathways. In addition, neurotrophic and angiogenetic effects of EPO may contribute in a long latency protection. Interestingly, also systemic...

  17. Training by means of simulators; Opplaering ved bruk av simulator

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Hansen, Hans Petter

    1998-07-01

    This presentation claims that the offshore industry has enough technology and equipment, it does not lack money, if the projects are good enough, and it does not lack new challenging tasks. The challenge is to provide the skill required to accomplish the tasks and to make the personnel, technology and the organisation work together. Thus, tomorrow's winners on the shelf will be those who commit themselves to education and learning. Simulators have been used extensively by the airline companies. This is not the case for the operation of drilling rigs at sea. Some entrepreneurs have begun to realise that simulator training is the modern way of approaching new technology. Operators have been using simulators for many years in offshore process training. The development of software and audio-visual tools brings the student closer to reality by simulation. In cooperation with Maritime Hydraulic, Smedvig Offshore AS developed a Ram Rig simulator. This presentation discusses Version 1 of the RamRig Simulator in some detail and some issues to be incorporated into the next version.

    1991-08-01

    In 26 patients with multiple sclerosis 100% responded abnormally to magnetic resonance imaging of the brain. Lesions in the posterior fossa were observed in 18 patients. The auditory brain stem response was abnormal in 15 patients, and 22 had abnormal immunoglobulins in the cerebrospinal fluid. The correlation between abnormalities of the auditory brain stem response and the magnetic resonance images was greatest in a subgroup where the two investigations were performed within a ten day interval. Results from magnetic resonance imaging, evoked potentials and cerebrospinal fluid investigations were used to reclassify 13 of 15 patients with clinically ''possible'' or ''probable''multiple sclerosis to a higher level using Poser's criteria. Evoked potentials (the auditory brain stem response in particular) correlated best with clinical multiple sclerosis category. The authors recommend that the magnetic resonance imaging is established as a first-hand investigation in evaluation of multiple sclerosis. Evoked potentials and cerebrospinal fluid investigations may prove to be more specific, however, and these investigations should also be performed as a routine. 23 refs., 2 figs., 2 tabs.

    Full Text Available I efteråret 2012 forsøgte vi os med livestreaming af undervisning på 1. semester af bacheloruddannelsen i Humanistisk Informatik (AAU. Livestreaming var en måde at løse et presserende problem med stort optag af nye studerende og deraf følgende lokalemangel. Samtidig var det en mulighed for at opsamle strukturerede erfaringer med nye undervisningsrum og undervisningsformer. Det er disse erfaringer, vi med udgangspunkt i kvalitative og kvantitative data analyserer og diskuterer i denne artikel. Artiklens formål er at klarlægge, hvilke problematikker og potentialer studerende og undervisere oplever i forbindelse med livestreaming og fastholdelse af undervisning. Rent teknisk oplevede vi store udfordringer som afstedkom, at vi kort inde i semestret afbrød forsøget med streaming og i stedet dublerede de resterende forelæsninger. Vi nåede dog at få indsamlet data om både studerende og underviseres erfaringer med og holdninger til livestreaming og fastholdelse af undervisning. Disse potentialer og problematikker diskuterer vi med udgangspunkt i vores data og i dialog med eksisterende forskning inden for området.

    Neuromuscular blockers (NMBs) provide good conditions for endotracheal intubation and surgery. NMBs have been associated with higher morbidity and mortality, mainly due to post-operative residual neuromuscular block. This may become history with the advent of sugammadex - an antidote to the NMB...... rocuronium - which within 1-3 minutes neutralizes the effects of rocuronium. High-dose rocuronium is now an alternative to suxamethonium in acute or short procedures and in a situation, where ventilation/intubating cannot be performed, sugammadex can reverse the rocuronium blockade within minutes....

    Full Text Available Aarhus Universitet (AU vedtog i 2011 en ambitiøs politik for educational it med en række indsatsområder, hvoraf særligt anskaffelsen og implementeringen af en fælles e-læringsplatform, uddannelse af universitetets undervisere samt udvikling af undervisningen er af højeste prioritet (Aarhus Universitet, 2011. Pga. begrænsede midler har der imidlertid været behov for en ekstraordinær systematisk og effektiv måde at håndtere implementerings- og udviklingsarbejdet på. Dette bevirkede, at Science and Technology (ST i 2013 udviklede et learning design-framework, STREAM (Godsk, 2013, til at guide transformeringen af kurser og som et omdrejningspunkt for uddannelse af undervisere på fakultetets adjunktpædagogikum. I 2015 blev STREAM endvidere adopteret af Faculty of Health (HE og her yderligere operationaliseret til et såkaldt toolkit vha. Dee Finks castle-top diagram for således at muliggøre eksplicit design af sammenhængende undervisningsforløb (Conole & Fill, 2005; Fink, 2013. En operationalisering, der betød, at learning design-tilgangen også kunne benyttes til at pædagogisk kvalificere implementeringen og ibrugtagningen af universitetets nye e-læringsplatform, Blackboard Learn.

    Det ambiente er iscenesættelsen af en karakteristisk sanseoplevelse, der er kendetegnet ved fornemmelsen af at være omgivet. I dag bliver begrebet om det ambiente mest anvendt i forbindelse med musikgenren ’ambient musik’.

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Afzelius, Pia; Alstrup, Aage Kristian Olsen; Schønheyder, Henrik Carl;

    Osteomyelitis er en alvorlig sygdom. Tidlig diagnose og påbegyndelse af behandlingen er vigtigt for at forhindre sygdomsudviklingen og for at reducere potentielt alvorlige komplikationer. Konventionel røntgenundersøgelse udført tidligt i forløbet kan ikke udelukke akut osteomyelitis. MRI......, knogleskintigrafi og CT er centrale billeddiagnostiske metoder til diagnostik af akut osteomyelitis hos børn. MRI betragtes ofte som værende den bedste billeddannende metode, men er ikke altid tilgængelig og kræver anæstesi af små børn. Knogleskintigrafi påviser osteoblastaktivitet og anses for at være yderst...... sensitiv men er ikke særlig specifik. 18F-fluordeoxyglucose (FDG) PET har måske den højeste diagnostiske nøjagtighed for bekræftelse/udelukkelse af kronisk osteomyelitis sammenlignet med knogleskintigrafi, MRI og leukocytskintigrafi. Imidlertid har de fleste studier kun anvendt 18F-FDG PET ved mistanke om...

    2009-02-01

    Full Text Available Artikkelen omhandler en studie av Dementia Care Mapping (DCM anvendt i et norsk sykehjem. Hensikten med studien var å undersøke om det skjer et perspektivskifte i personalgruppen ved bruk av DCM-metoden, og om dette får konsekvenser for praksis. I studien inngikk fokusgruppeintervju med personalet i sykehjemsavdelingen. Bakgrunnsopplysningene som sykepleierne reflekterte over, var kartlegging av trivsel og velvære hos pasientene innsamlet gjennom DCM-metoden, og meldt tilbake til personalet. Personalet opplevde at tilbakemeldingene førte til økt bevissthet i samhandling med pasientene. Ifølge deres utsagn medførte prosjektet flere konkrete endringer i måten de møtte pasientene på. Kartleggingen foretatt etter tre måneder viste større grad av trivsel og velvære i pasientgruppen. Dette peker i retning av at DCM kan være en nyttig metode for kvalitetsutvikling av demensomsorgen i sykehjem. Det er imidlertid behov for videre forskning med et strammere design og et større utvalg for å bekrefte funnene.

RESULTS: The study showed that the highest number of Sa and bacteria in total was dispersed into the air when the volunteers were moving and wearing only their street clothes....... The dispersal of Sa into the air was reduced into a minimum by wearing cap, gown and gloves, and no further significant decrease was achieved by wearing a mask. This applied for all volunteers except for one, who had to wear a mask in order to reduce his dispersal of Sa to a minimum. The total dispersal...... of bacteria was significantly reduced by wearing cap, gown and gloves; however, to reduce this dispersal to a minimum, volunteers also had to wear a mask. CONCLUSION: Our study supports the rational basis that gown, cap, gloves and mask should be used not only in the operating theatre, but also while e...

I denne undersøkelsen har visammenliknet de som starter med alkohol tidlig og før det er kulturelt akseptert, med ungdommenesom begynner i konfirmasjonsalder og de som utsetter alkoholdebuten. Vi finner at gruppen sombegynner tidlig ikke bare bryter de lokale tradisjonene for alkoholkonsum, men er i opposisjon tilnormer og autoriteter generelt. Alkohol er et positivt symbol for gruppen og det å ruse seg et ritualesom gir mening i deres miljø. Hjemmet står i den sterkeste posisjonen til å kunne utsette ungdommensalkoholdebut. Vi skisserer hvilke implikasjoner dette bør ha for strategien i det forebyggende arbeidet.

Artiklen forsøger at skabe et overblik over de nye kommunikations- og formidlingsmuligheder, der eksisterer i nye digitale medier (Finnemann 2005, ofte kaldet Web 2.0. Det centrale spørgsmål er: Hvordan kan man formidle forskning gennem digitale medier? Artiklen er et indledende studie i et større projekt om potentialerne i digital forskningsformidling i relation til tre målgrupper: andre forskere, virksomheder/organisationer og offentligheden. Fokus for projektet er bevægelsen fra monologiske til dialogiske medier. Kan nye kommunikationsformer i forskningsformidlingen bevæge sig ud over envejs-kommunikation og i stedet fostre dialog - herunder styrke diskussion, udveksling og samarbejde mellem forskere indbyrdes, mellem forskere og projektpartnere og i forhold til den brede offentlighed?

  18. Diversion at small hydro-electric power stations; Forbislipping ved smaa vannkraftverk

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Noren, Knut E.; Elstad, Ivar K.

    2008-07-01

    At a shut down caused by, for instance, a power shortage at a power station, the electric aggregate will stop and there will be a quick change in the flow of water downstream of the power station. This situation gives undesirable environmental effects, especially with regards to fish. The fish must have the opportunity to withdraw to deep pools, to avoid running aground. The goal of this report is to present good ideas to design diversion stations that reduce the environmental effects to an acceptable level, which is especially important in anadromous waterways, simultaneously not costing too much. The demand for diversion should be clarified with the authorities as soon as possible. By taking into account the power stations dimensions and foundation needs early on in the planning phase, the cost will be minimized. As a rule NVE currently demand that a diversion installation must have a capacity of 50 % of the turbines full flow of water. This is to avoid large changes in the flow of water downstream of the power station. In addition to the demand on the maximum capacity of the diversion installation, there should also be posed a demand that the calculation of the rate of flow should be kept within 50 % of the total rate of flow before the shut down. This is possible to achieve with the help of software control without the operational drawbacks caused by slow regulation being too great. Calculations carried out show that also with loading operation after shut down should have a relatively slow rate of flow. It is recommended that the short term rate of flow increase should be no more than 50 % of the rate of flow before the shut down or the stationary rate of flow before the turbines are started. To ensure the diversion with loading operation at small power stations it is recommended to use standard valves as much as possible, possibly with an energy dissipater that often can be manufactured locally. The installation should be arranged in such a way that the components that are exposed to wear and tear may be replaced as conveniently as possible. Being that most small power stations have a control installation based on the static current principle, demands for diversion at shut down must be specially taken into account and often require its own power system.

    Nielsen, M. (Hedeselskabet (Denmark))

    1992-01-01

    Ground-water at many Danish locations has been polluted by organic substances. This pollution has taken place in relation to leaks or spills of, for example, petrol from leaky tanks or oil separators. The article describes a new biological technique for the purification of ground-water polluted by petrol and diesel oils leaked at a petrol station. The technique involves decompostion by bacteria. During decompostion the biomass in the filter increases and carbon dioxide and water is produced, so there is no waste product from this process. The two units consist of an oil-separator which separates the diesel oil and petrol from the water, and a bio-filter which is constructed as an aired-through inverted filter to which nutrient salts are continually added. The filter-material used is in the form of plastic rings on which the oil-decomposing bacteria grow and reproduce themselves. The system is further described. It is claimed that the bio-filter can decompose 7 kg of petrol and diesel oil in one week, larger ones decompose more. The servicelife of the system is expected to be 4-6 years. Current installation costs are 20.000 - 100.000 Danish kroner, according to size. (AB).

    To increase the efficiency of small-scale combustion equipment it is possible to cool the flue gas and condense the water vapor in the flue gas in a flue gas condenser. This also makes it possible to reduce the emissions of particles and unburnt hydrocarbon if the condenser is designed in a suitable way. This work concerns flue gas condensation with respect to the design of the condenser, the handling of the condensate and the integration of the flue gas condenser in a heating system from a technical and an economical point of view. The results from laboratory experiments shows that a flue gas condenser, designed as a plate heat exchanger, connected to a wood pellet fired heater reduces the emissions of both particles and unburnt hydrocarbons. A reduction of 10 to 77% of the particle content in the gas was achieved, the content of hydrocarbons (BTX) was reduced by 50 to 91 %. It was not possible to see any effect on the emissions by changing the design of the condenser, due to the relatively large scatter in the determined particle content in the gas. When it comes to cooling capacity the trends were however more clear; the cooling capacity was strongly dependent on the design of the condenser. It was possible to increase the cooling capacity of the condenser with 124% by changing the condenser design from a reference case with conventional design of the condenser with flat walls, to a design with a corrugated shape of the wall. For a typical domestic wood stove heater of 30 kW this means that the cooling capacity in a condenser under similar conditions increases from 3.3 to 7.4 kW. The addition of water in a spray in the gas upstream of the condenser had only a limited effect on the cooling capacity. The condensate from the condenser was analyzed with respect to the components that currently are regulated for disposal to the district sewer system. The analyses showed that the condensate most likely could be disposed to the sewer system directly without any cleaning. The use of fresh water spray in the equipment dilutes the condensate further, which makes the concentration of the pollutants even lower with fewer problems for the purifying plant. For integration of a flue gas condenser in a heating system, the main question is if there is a heat demand at sufficiently low temperatures where the heat generated by the condenser could be utilized. A combination of floor heating and tap water pre-heating with a water accumulator is shown to be an attractive system design. This solution could use the heat from the condenser and could at the same time handle seasonal variation in the heat demand. The economical calculations that have been done shows that it is economically motivated to invest in flue gas condensation equipment if the domestic heating system is to be converted from electricity or oil heating to a biomass heated system. The best possibility for this technique to be economically competitive is if the condenser is integrated in a new wood stove where the additional costs for equipment are the lowest.

    The objective for the analysis has been to establish data for the sea at Horns Rev wind farm in the North Sea in order to assess the opportunity for using the site as test site for demonstration of wave energy devices exemplified by three different devices under development in Denmark. For comparison alternative sites like Hanstholm, Samsoe and Nissum Bredning are also assessed as well as the test centre EMEC at the Orkney Islands and the proposed test site Wave Hub at the north coast of Cornwall. The analysis shows that it is possible without major technical problems to connect 2-4 MW power generated by 3 different wave energy devices (AquaBuOY, Wave Star Energy and Wave Dragon) to the wind farm at Horns Rev (www.hornsrev.dk). The expenses for connection and regulation within the wind farm is about 200,000 DKK (30,00 EURO). On top of this comes the cost for individual sub sea cable connection to the wave devices, pull in of the sub sea cable through the existing J-tube in turbine T04 and the necessary regulation/control system in the individual wave devices to avoid damaging the power system in case of too high production. The analysis of the co-production of wind and wave power is dealt with in a separate report which shows that over a time period of half to one hour the time variation for wind generated electricity is 3 times as large as for wave energy generated power based on the actual measurement at Horns Rev. Further on the analysis shows that the wave generated power is more predictable than wind energy generated power as the power from the waves first is present about 2 hours after the wind is acting and last for 3 to 6 hours after the wind dies out; 6 to 12 hours with wind from west. The time is off course strongly depending of the direction of the wind i.e. the fetch. As this special report has a more general scope than the analysis as such it is reported in English (Annex Report II). The analysis shows that it is up to the individual device developer to judge about the advantages using the 'low cost solution for grid connection' at Horns Rev wind farm as there are disadvantages too, like not having the optimal wave climate for the individual devices. The wave climate at the Horns Rev wind farm is described in English (Annex Report I). Other alternatives outside Denmark are the EMEC centre in Scotland and the proposed Wave Hub testing facility in Cornwall both with established grid connection. The analysis is covering the risk assessment related to deployment rather close to the wind farm. The risk assessment shows that some type of incidents will have severe economic consequences for the turbine owner - in worst case a loss of 1 mil. DKK/day (135,000 EURO/day). No formal agreement about the actual use of the wind farm site as a test site for wave energy has been discussed with the authorities or the wind farm owner. (au)

    Most patients with rectal carcinomas undergo surgery, either a resection with anastomosis or Miles' operation with permanent colostomy. Endocavitary radiotherapy is an alternative to surgery in patients with small carcinomas (Dukes' A) or adenovillous adenomas. The treatment is cheap, simple, gives good local tumour control, has low morbidity and does not require hosptialization. The Norwegian Radium Hospital has recently startet to use this method in selected cases of rectal carcinomas. 12 refs., 1 fig.

    Full Text Available Analyses of textbooks in nursing, of photographs and numerous other documents suggest that parents had limited access to participate in the care for their hospitalized children in Norway in the period 1877-1940. The analyses are conducted in the tradition of the French philosopher Michel Foucault’s writings on discipline. In accordance with Foucault’s understanding, it seems logical that ideas about parenting exclusion had impact even within the hospital health care system in the current era, provided the general separation of parents and children in the modern industrial society at large. In this perspective, exclusion of parents in the hospital health care system may be considered a consequence of employers’ interests with regard to productivity, the lack of welfare services for parents, and the fear of parents transmitting infections from the hospitals.

    Poh, S. Y.; Kong, J. A.

    The transient electromagnetic radiation by a vertical electric dipole on a two-layer medium is analyzed using the double deformation technique, which is a modal technique based on identification of singularities in the complex frequency and wavenumber planes. Previous application of the double deformation technique to the solution of this problem is incomplete in the early time response. In this paper it is shown that the existence of a pole locus on the negative imaginary frequency axis, which dominates the early time response, proves crucial in obtaining the solution for all times. A variety of combinations of parameters are used to illustrate the double deformation technique, and results will be compared with those obtained via explicit inversion, and a single deformation method.

    Full Text Available Norway has become a multicultural society where cultural encounters still can be seen as cultural conflict. The increased diversity in the population leads to an increased need for students with minority background within the health professions and health professionals from the majority population practicing care with a culture sensitive approach. During the last years, the University College of Oslo and Akershus has seen a significant increase of health student applicants with immigrant background. To encounter the situation this article aims to describe immigrant student's learning situation. 21 randomly selected students from the University College were interviewed on the basis of a semi-structured interview guide. Nine of the students were immigrants and 12 belonged to the major population. Gained data were analysed within a constant comparative approach. Our results showed that immigrant students face challenges during participation in study groups, seminars and in other professional communities. The detected challenges also included the acquisition of terminology and communication in Norwegian. The study concludes that there is a need for an enforced inclusive learning environment by promoting togetherness, tolerance and cultural competence.

  13. Energy and environmental assessment in connection with renovation; Energi- og miljoevurdering ved renovering

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Holleris Petersen, E.

    2001-07-01

    Environmental assessments were carried out for renovation projects that more energy saving measures than usual for renovation projects and also for more traditional renovation of small flats. These environmental assessments were carried out primarily with a view to test the suitability of the BEAT 2000 simulation program for energy and environmental assessments for renovation projects, but also with a view to clarify the importance of doing more comprehensive environmental assessments. BEAT 2000 tests will show whether the assessment tool should be changed to include renovation projects and also of the tool's database should be extended with specific materials and building elements used in renovation. Experience gained on the project shows that environmental assessment of renovation projects does not in principle differ from assessments of new building. Further data need to be collected, especially in relation to new and not commonly used energy-saving solutions and the selected materials. These are characterised by occurring not only in connection with renovation but also with new buildings where they can generally be used. It may be added that an extended database including materials for new and not commonly used energy-saving solutions will facilitate environmental assessment of most traditional plumbing and electrical installations as the same materials are extensively used. They can also be used in connection with renovation and new building. Moreover the database should be extended to include a number of typical building elements used for renovating. However, it should be expected that new and not commonly used building elements will be used in connection with renovation, their use dictated by specific physical conditions of old houses. Therefore it will be impossible to establish a database of building elements for renovation that will be as comprehensive as building elements for new buildings. It will often be necessary for the user himself to define the necessary building element to be used in renovation and this is the reason why environmental assessment in renovation in general can be expected to be more time consuming than new building. The performed energy and environmental assessments show that energy consumption for operation and its environmental impact is the most important, but also energy and environmental assessments of production and waste management can be important to consider when selecting between new and not commonly used energy or building solutions.

    In Norway, most power development projects are subject to the 1917 law on the regulation of watercourses and its revision of 1992. This report discusses certain aspects of concession granting conditions laid down in this law. Part I describes some variants of the profitability concept and discusses the project owner`s incentives: He may feel encouraged to influence assessments of the damage and inconvenience his project might inflict on private and public interests because for him large compensations are connected with low project value. If there is doubt about a project`s worthiness of concession and its value for the owner is positive, then the owner may overstate the value and the positive external effects of the project and understate the negative ones. And vice versa for a project of negative value. Part II discusses some of the principle characteristics of today`s concession practice: quantification of costs in a power development project, estimation of production value, quantification of discount rate. Part III deals with possible linkage between concession granting authorities and various participants in a development project from the point of view of political science. 14 refs., 3 figs., 1 tab.

    The Danish Local Government Reform in 2007 reduced the number of municipalities from 271 to 98 and the number of Regions from 14 to 5 along with major changes in tasks, finances and the equalisation scheme. One of the objectives of the reform was to realize administrative economies of scale. Measured by administrative costs, this article concludes that the amalgamated municipalities so far have not realized the expected administrative economies of scale. It is, however, also shown that the potential economies of scale prior to the Reform was inflated in a Reform legitimating process. Before as well as after the Reform, administrative economies of scale exist if analysing on administrative costs. Technically administrative costs by decentralised agencies, however, cannot be calculated and are therefore not included in the analysis. Basing the analysis instead on administrative personnel, including administrative staff employed at schools, kindergartens etc., the conclusion is that larger municipalities do not spend less resources on administration than smaller municipalities.

    The primary source of vitamin D in humans is sun exposure to the skin. The incidence of certain autoimmune diseases correlates positively with latitude. As vitamin D production increases with sun exposure, vitamin D insufficiency is hypothesised to influence the development of autoimmune diseases...

    The future needs for research on issues related to Norwegian watercourse management were discussed at a seminar at Hell near Trondheim, on November 20-21, 1995. This publication reviews the work done on the seminar. Several topics in hydrology and applied watercourse management were discussed and suggestions were made for future research activities. General factors believed to influence future research activities include the possible shift in hydrologic and water science perspective from a segmented to a more holistic view of the watercourse: the expected increasing need for interdisciplinary research and institutional cooperation, the continued need for in-depth understanding of certain disciplines, the significance of an upcoming law on watercourse issues, and the effect of climate change. It is recommended that future research should be concentrated to a few watercourses and that a research programme on watercourse environment should be established. Projects are recommended on floods and flood control, on climate change and its effect on watercourses, on knowledge distribution, on the effects of new strategies such as peaking for management of hydroelectric power plants. These recommendations will be used to develop a research programme for the period 1997-2000. 35 refs., 16 figs., 6 tabs.

    Denne artikel belyser hvorledes video mediering har givet en værdifuld ekstra dimension i undervisningen i introducerende programmeringsfærdigheder. I forbindelse med programmering er et af de vigtigste mål at lære de studerende en systematisk tilgang til udviklingen af programmer. Det vil sige at understøtte de studerendes læring af programmeringsprocessen. Traditionelle medier som lærerbøger er meget lidt velegnede til at illustrere denne proces; de fokuserer på produkterne (de færdige programmer i stedet for at fokusere på produktionsprocessen. De videomedierede materialer er i denne sammenhæng optagelser af hvorledes underviseren løser praktiske programmeringsopgaver. Disse videoer kommunikerer vigtige pointer ved programmeringsprocessen såsom at der ikke en lige vej til det færdige produkt, at man anvender forskellige værktøjer, at man ændrer sit program, at man tester sit program undervejs mm. Jeg har identificeret fem forskellige kategorier af videomedierede undervisningsmaterialer og evalueret hvorledes de studerende har anvendt dem i et konkret kursusforløb. Evalueringen viser dels at de studerende anvender de fleste typer meget og finder dem meget anvendelige dels at videoer der blot dokumenterer forelæsninger ikke er ret benyttede.

    Artiklen påpeger at anvendt erkendelsesteori er en forbløffende underudviklet disciplin. Alvin Goldmans udkast til en social erkendelsesteori kan på mange måder danne forbillede for anvendt erkendelsesteori, men vises sig alligevel at have alvorlige begrænsninger, som særligt skyldes bestræbelsen...
