    Rosen, Edward

    2010-01-01

    The essays in Copernirus and his Successors deal both with the influences on Copernicus, including that of Greek and Arabic thinkers, and with his own life and attitudes. They also examine how he was seen by contemporaries and finally describe his relationship to other scientists, including Galileo, Brahe and Kepler.

  2. Two variables and two successors

    2010-01-01

    We look at the finite satisfiability problem of the two variable fragment of first order logic with the successors of two linear orders. While the logic with both the successors and their transitive closures remains undecidable, we prove that the logic with only the successors is decidable.

  3. ASPERA welcomes its successor

    2012-01-01

    On 30 November, after six and a half years spent developing and coordinating Europe’s astroparticle physics community, the AStroParticle European Research Area (ASPERA) network wrapped up its activities at a final session in Brussels. This was also an opportunity for ASPERA's organisers to present their project’s successor: the newly founded ApPEC, the Astroparticle Physics European Consortium.   Since 2006, the ASPERA network has been bringing together the national government agencies responsible for coordinating and funding national research efforts in astroparticle physics. Its main achievement has been the development of a common European strategy for astroparticle physics, which defined the priorities for the large infrastructures needed. ASPERA also developed actions to encourage activities in the field, including common calls for research and development, and established closer links with industry and other research fields. ApPEC will now take over from the ...

  4. The suitability of internal versus external successors

    of family business succession in order to understand when family successors are preferred because of their family-specific experiential knowledge. A case study analysis from the German-Danish border region explores how a family firm has used internal successors for the last 12 successions. We argue...... that in industries where tacit knowledge forms the basis for competitive advantage, the use of internal successors can help family firms excel after a transition of power has occurred. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed to enhance the long-term perspective for family businesses.......Understanding knowledge transfer in family firm succession is important for the survival of family firms. Previous research has begun to explore the suitability of internal versus external successor in family firms with regard to relevant knowledge types. This paper builds on the contingency model...

  5. Don't Choose Your Own Successor

    1974-01-01

    Chief executive officers (CEOs) often select successors who fail. CEOs may choose badly because they cannot foresee the future, recognize the qualities that led them to success, or betray company traditions. Most often, however, they unconsciously wish to prove that no one can do the job as well as they have. (Author/JF)

  6. SUCCESSOR EFFECT IN FAMILY FARMS IN POLAND

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available In the literature and sectoral policy strategies, a generation change among farm managers is often linked with the expectations of positive developments in agriculture and rural areas. The farm succession is usually perceived as favourable for economic situation of farming families. As a consequence of this process diff erent methods of management are often implemented. The new farmer’s experiences, ideas and skills that could contribute to the development of production and improvement of its profi tability are also brought. The aim of this paper is to describe the changes that have occurred in the farms after succession. In total, among this group an increased number of actions aimed at the development of the agricultural businesses were not observed. However, analyses showed that among successors diff erent attitudes towards acquired production assets were observed. The empirical material used in the study were the results of the IAFE-NRI panel surveys conducted on a sample of more than 2,5 thousand of the same farms in 2000, 2005 and 2011.

  10. An Empirical Study of the Relationship between Entrepreneurial Competences and Innovativeness of Successors in Family SMEs

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Letonja Marina

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available Background and Purpose: In the recent period, scholarly interest for family entrepreneurship and succession has been increasing while the question of innovative capability of family SMEs and of innovativeness of founders and successors is relatively unexplored. Little is known about the factors, which are positively correlated, or affect innovativeness of successors in family SMEs. This research explores the relationship between entrepreneurial competences of the founders in family SMEs and innovativeness of their successors.

  11. Successor Characteristics of the Mesozoic and Cenozoic Songliao Basins

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    LI Zhongquan; Timothy KUSKY; YING Danlin; GUO Xiaoyu; LI Hongkui

    2008-01-01

    The Songliao basin is a complex successor basin that was initiated in the Mesozoic and experienced multiple periods of reactivation. Based on seismic and drilling data, as well as regional geologic research, we suggest that the Songliao basin contains several different successor basins resting on top of Carboniferous-Permian folded strata forming the basement to the Songliao basin. These basins include the Triassic-Mid Jurassic Paleo-foreland basin, the Late Jurassic-Early Cretaceous downfaulted basin, and an early Cretaceous depressed basin (since the Denglouku Group). This paper presents a systematic study of the basin-mountain interactions, and reveals that there are different types of prototype basin at different geologic times. These prototype basins sequentially superimposed and formed the large Songliao basin. Discovery of the Triassic-early Middle Jurassic paleo-foreland basin fills a Triassic-early Middle Jurassic gap in the geologic history of the Songliao basin. The paleoforeland basin, downfaulted basin, and depressed thermal subsidence basin all together represent the whole Mesozoic-Cenozoic geologic history and deformation of the Songliao basin. Discovery of the Triassic-early Middle Jurassic paleo-foreland basin plays an important role both for deep natural gas exploration and the study of basin-mountain coupling in north China and eastern China in general. This example gives dramatic evidence that we should give much more attention to the polyphase tectonic evolution of related basins for the next phase of exploration and study.

    2014-10-01

    Successor establishment in familiy business may lead to interpersonal and intrapsychological conflicts and is mostly a transition to retirement. This may have a negative impact on the senior's health. The "Sozialversicherung für Landwirtschaft, Forsten und Gartenbau (SVLFG)" reacts with an intervention of several days duration. Evaluation aim is measuring participants changes in specific activities and confidence on successor establishment and retirement indicating mental health stabilisation. The method comprises a panel of intervention group (I, n=61) and comparison group (V, n=28) randomly selected, structurally similar and parallelised to point of transfer. Retirement activities significantly rise in I (p=0.001, Cohen's d=0.48) and are steady in V (p=0.54) after one year. Level of confidence is equal in both groups and steady but strongly indicating response shift in I. Intervention activates targeted activities and improves confidence at least qualitatively in a field that has hardly been researched.

    Ravi, GR

    2015-01-01

    ABSTRACT Radicular cysts are by far the most common cystic lesions of the jaw. However, those arising from primary teeth are comparatively rare, comprising only 0.5 to 3.3%. The aim of this paper is to present clinical, radiographic and histopathological characteristics of radicular cyst associated with a primary mandibular molar causing unusual displacement of the permanent successor. Extraction of primary tooth along with extirpation of cyst was done under local anesthesia. The displaced premolar was also extracted and then replanted in the socket after proper alignment. Healing was uneventful and the space of missing primary molar was maintained by band and loop space maintainer. The relationship between intracanal medicaments and rapid growth of cyst, as mentioned in literature was observed in our case too. Thus, pulpotomy treated primary teeth should receive periodic postoperative radiographic examination and absence of clinical symptoms does not mean that a pulpotomy treated tooth is healthy.

  3. Compiling Causal Theories to Successor State Axioms and STRIPS-Like Systems

    CERN Document Server

    Lin, F

    2011-01-01

    We describe a system for specifying the effects of actions. Unlike those commonly used in AI planning, our system uses an action description language that allows one to specify the effects of actions using domain rules, which are state constraints that can entail new action effects from old ones. Declaratively, an action domain in our language corresponds to a nonmonotonic causal theory in the situation calculus. Procedurally, such an action domain is compiled into a set of logical theories, one for each action in the domain, from which fully instantiated successor state-like axioms and STRIPS-like systems are then generated. We expect the system to be a useful tool for knowledge engineers writing action specifications for classical AI planning systems, GOLOG systems, and other systems where formal specifications of actions are needed.

The paper may assist particularly policy makers and strategists to focus on new possibilities of leadership successors attributes that will lead to improved governance as well as government performance in the world in general, and the Palestine community, in particular.

  5. The Structure of the Solar Wind at Large Heliocentric Distances: CIRs and their Successors

    Gazis, P. R.

    1999-01-01

    Co-rotating interaction regions (CIRs) and their associated shock pairs are dominant structures in the solar wind between the heliocentric distances of 2 and 8 AU. At larger heliocentric distances, these structures undergo a qualitative change. Shocks decay to a point where they are often difficult to detect, and may have little influence on the dynamics of the solar wind. Interaction regions spread and merge, though they appear to retain their identity to surprisingly large distances from the Sun. Solar wind and IMF data from the Pioneer 10, Pioneer 11, and Voyager 2 spacecraft were used to conduct a comprehensive survey of CIRs and their successors between heliocentric distances of 1 and 55 AU over the last two solar cycles. The structure of the solar wind varied in a consistent fashion with heliocentric distance. Similar structures were observed at similar heliocentric distances by all three spacecraft during different portions of the solar cycle.

    Family businesses are critical to the United States economy, employing 63% of the workforce and generating 57% of GDP (University of Vermont, 2014). Family business continuity, however, remains elusive as approximately 70% of family businesses do not survive the second generation (Poza, 2013). In order to augment our understanding of how next generation leaders are chosen in family businesses, we examine daughter succession. Using a sample of pairs of family business fathers and daughters and drawing on an earlier study of the dearth of successor daughters in family businesses (Overbeke et al., 2013), we reveal that shared vision between fathers and daughters is central to daughter succession. Self-efficacy and gender norms influence shared vision and when fathers and daughters share a vision for the future of the company, daughters are likely to be transformed into successors.

    2016-09-01

    The Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (APOGEE) of Sloan Digital Sky Survey III (SDSS-III) has produced a large catalog of high resolution ({R = 22 500}), high quality (S/N > 100), infrared (H-band) spectra for stars throughout all stellar populations of the Milky Way, including in regions veiled by significant dust opacity. APOGEE's half million spectra collected on > 163 000 unique stars, with time series information via repeat visits to each star, are being applied to numerous problems in stellar populations, Galactic astronomy, and stellar astrophysics. From among the early results of the APOGEE project - which span from measurements of Galactic dynamics, to multi-element chemical maps of the disk and bulge, new views of the interstellar medium, explorations of stellar companions, the chemistry of star clusters, and the discovery of rare stellar species - I highlight a few results that demonstrate APOGEE's unique ability to sample and characterize the Galactic disk and bulge. Plans are now under way for an even more ambitious successor to APOGEE: the six-year, dual-hemisphere APOGEE-2 project. Both phases of APOGEE feature a strong focus on targets having asteroseismological measurements from either Kepler or {CoRoT}, from which it is possible to derive relatively precise stellar ages. The combined APOGEE and APOGEE-2 databases of stellar chemistry, dynamics and ages constitute an unusually comprehensive, systematic and homogeneous resource for constraining models of Galactic evolution.

  11. Transfer of single farm payment entitlements to farm successors: impact on structural change and rental prices in Switzerland

    Full Text Available This paper analyses the impact of tradable and non-tradable single farm payment (SFP entitlements for farm successors on structural change and the lease market. Using the example of Swiss agriculture, the effects on rental-price trends and farm-exit rates are investigated. An ex-ante normative impact analysis is performed with the agent-based agricultural-sector model SWISSland, which simulates structural change processes and income trends in Swiss agriculture over a period of up to 15 years. A land market implemented at municipality level simulates the plot-by-plot leasing of land to surrounding neighbouring agents that is common in Switzerland. Allocation of plots to tenants as well as lease pricing is modelled taking into account the farm-specific land rents. The results show that personalised SFP entitlements which could not be transferred to a farm successor not only cause an intensification of structural change, but would also thus lead to a substantial reduction in rental prices. SFP entitlements which were successfully transferred to farm successors have only a slight impact on structural change and the rental prices of arable land. Only for grassland in the mountain region does a stronger shift result in a significant reduction in rental prices.

    Full Text Available Complicated crown fracture and crown-root fracture with pulp involvement expose dental pulp to the oral environment. The pulp outcome is often unpredictable because the patient and injury which are related to variables can influence the treatment of choice and the prognosis of the case. This report presents the case of a 4-year-old boy with complicated crown fracture with pulp polyp in the primary right maxillary central incisor (51 and crown-root fracture with pulp involvement in the primary left maxillary central incisor (61, which was treated only 3 months after the tooth injuries. The treatment of choice was extraction of tooth (61 due to a periapical lesion with disruption of the dental follicle of the permanent successor and pulpotomy (MTA of the tooth (51, because the pulp presented signs of vitality. At the follow-up visits, no clinical, symptomalogical, and radiographic changes were observed until the primary tooth’s exfoliation. However, at 3-year follow-up, the permanent successors showed hypocalcification and the position of the permanent right maxillary central incisors (11 was altered. Besides the conservative and adequate delayed treatment, the sequelae on the permanent successors could not be avoided.

    countries were conducted and mooring buoy observations were also carried out. The data retrieved during these observations was accumulated in the "Arctic Data archive System (ADS)" (https://ads.nipr.ac.jp/) and served with interfaces for analysis. In addition, modeling studies have been promoted from fundamental process model to general circulation model. The successor of the project, ArCS (Arctic Challenge for Sustainability), which lays delivering emphasis 
on robust scientific information to stakeholders for decision making and solving problems, was started in FY2015. Within this project, a cooperative observation of black carbon are planned to be started at Cape Baranova Station (AARI, Rusia), Severnaya Zemlya, and new activities including emphasizing aerological observations are also planned to be started for contributing to "Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP)" of Polar Prediction Project (PPP/ WMO). It will be desirable to have a future collaboration with IASOA.

    C. D. Sherborn published in 1940, under the imprint of Cambridge University Press but at his own expense, Where is the - Collection? This idiosyncratic listing of named natural science collections, and their fates, was useful, but incomplete, and uneven in its accuracy. It is argued that those defects were inevitable, given Sherborn's age and wartime conditions, and that what might seem one of Sherborn's less impressive works was in fact a pioneering work highly influential in stimulating the production of successor works now much used in curation, and in systematic and descriptive biology and palaeontology. The book also contributed to the development of collections research in the natural sciences, and the history of collections and of museums.

    Traumatic lesions in primary teeth are frequent in pediatric patients and can cause problems both to the deciduous tooth and permanent successor. The impact strength on deciduous tooth can reach the growing permanent tooth, affecting its morphology, structure and position, or even hampering its proper development. This report describes an aesthetic-functional rehabilitation process in an 8 year 10 month old boy during a multidisciplinary treatment held at the Clinical Center of Dental Trauma in Primary Teeth of the Pediatric Dentistry of Dental College of University of São Paulo, Brazil. The patient presented bilateral posterior cross bite and the permanent left upper central incisor with ectopic eruption and enamel hypoplasy, preceded by avulsion of element 61, occurred when the patient was 1.6 years old. After diagnosis and treatment planning, a quick expansion of jaws was recommended with Hass-type rapid expander and orthodontic leveling with fixed braces. Due to the ectopic eruption, the gingival contour had been altered and hypertrophia was found, compromising aesthetics and avoiding local hygienic procedures. Gingivoplasty was carried out with high-intensity Diode Laser, followed by aesthetic restoration with compound resin. It was concluded that after deciduous teeth traumatism it is important that the patient undergoes clinic and radiographic assistance until the permanent teeth erupt so that an adequate multidisciplinary treatment can be offered to the patient.

  9. Unconscious phantasy as a structural principle and organizer of mental life: The evolution of a concept from Freud to Klein and some of her successors.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Weiss, Heinz

    2017-02-17

    Starting with Freud's discovery of unconscious phantasy as a means of accessing his patients' internal world, the author discusses the evolution of the concept in the work of Melanie Klein and some of her successors. Whereas Freud sees phantasy as a wish fulfilling imagination, dominated by primary process functioning and kept apart from reality testing, Klein understands phantasies as a structural function and organizer of mental life. From their very beginnings they involve object relations and gradually evolve from primitive body-near experiences to images and symbolic representations. With her concept of projective identification in particular, Klein anticipates the communicative function of unconscious phantasies. They are at the basis of processes of symbolization, but may also be put into the service of complex defensive operations. The author traces the further evolution of the concept from the contributions of S. Isaacs, the theories of thinking proposed by W.R. Bion and R. Money-Kyrle, Hanna Segal's ideas on symbolization and reparation all the way to the latest approaches by R. Britton, J. Steiner and others, including the understanding of transference and counter-transference as a 'total situation'. Points of contact with Freud are to be found particularly in connection with his concept of 'primal phantasies'. In the author's view, the idea of the transmission and communicative potential of unconscious phantasies enabled these authors to overcome the solipsistic origins of drive theory in favour of a notion in which unconscious phantasies both set down the coordinates of the inner world and form and reflect the matrix of inter-subjective relations.

    Not too long before the first long technical stop of the LHC, engineers and physicists are already working on the next generation of accelerators: HL-LHC and LHeC. The first would push proton-proton collisions to an unprecedented luminosity rate; the second would give a second wind to electron-proton collisions.   The ring-ring configuration of the LHeC would need this type of magnets, currently being studied for possible future use. In one year, the LHC will begin to change. During the first long shutdown, from December 2012 to late 2014, the machine will go through a first phase of major upgrades, with the objective of running at 7 TeV per beam at the beginning of 2015. With this long technical stop and the two others that will follow (in 2018 and 2022), a new project will see the light of day. Current plans include the study of something that looks more like a new machine rather than a simple upgrade: the High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC).

    While family succession requires the legitimacy foundation of successor,the inter-genera-tional difference always sunk the successor into legitimacy disadvantage, which in turn affects the enterprises�innovation strategy by stimulating successors� motive to “quick win”. From the perspective of inter-generational interaction,basing on 2 282 observation samples of public family bus-inesses listed in the “A”share during 2007—2014 and taking the entry of successor into the Board of Directors or TMT as the beginning of family succession,this paper explores the effects of family suc-cession on enterprises�innovation and examines the moderating effects of the inter-generational differ-ence of social capital on the relationship between family succession and enterprises�innovation by means of OLS regression model with a difference-in-differences approach.The results indicate that family succession negatively affects enterprises�innovation,and successors�social capital increases enterprises�inno-vation during the period of family succession,and further research finds that inter-generational difference of social capital narrows enterprises�innovation significantly.Compared with the condition of “father is weak while son strong”,“father is strong while son weak”would significantly reduce enterprises�in-novation.It is denoted that legitimacy disadvantage of successor is the main cause of enterprises�con-servation in innovation strategy,while improving successor�s social capital or diminishing the inter-generational gap on social capital is beneficial to more innovation.Therefore,family succession should not only be integrated into the strategy process,but also should attach importance to the practical im-pact of inter-generational matching process of social capital on the change and survival of family busi-ness.%代际传承要求继承人具备多种合法性基础,而代际差异往往使继承人处于合法性劣势地位,导致

    After 30 years of reform and opening-up,most successful family entrepreneurs now begin to pass their firms on to their successors.In this process,succession of entrepreneurial spirit is more important than transferring enterprise ownership and control power.As the leading role in current market economy,entrepreneurs' spirit is their soul and therefore,carrying forward the spirit will promote the longer growth of those family firms.As the reflection of entrepreneurial spirit,entrepreneurial intention can trigger entrepreneurial behavior,which makes it the basis and starting point of entrepreneurial research.Most successors of today's family firms are college students.Based on the samples of those family successors,we adopted theory of planned behavior to empirically test the important factors that influence those successors' entrepreneurial intention.The result gives useful suggestions for both family succession and entrepreneurship researches.Moreover,the software SmartPLS used in the article is worth attention and attempt in relevant studies.%改革开放30年,大批早前创业成功的家族企业面临着接班传承的问题。而对于前辈企业家创业精神的传承,比企业所有权和控制权的继承更重要。企业家是市场经济的主角,创业精神则是企业家的灵魂,创业精神的继承和发扬,直接影响着家族企业的可持续发展。创业意图是创业精神的原始体现,先有创业意图才会激发创业行为,创业意图是所有创业活动的根本基础和出发点,也是企业家创业精神及其传承的研究切入点。中国大量的家族企业准接班人目前都处于大学教育阶段,文章以其为研究对象,运用并扩展了计划行为理论模型,通过实证数据深入辨析了各种相关因素对家族企业后代创业意图所产生的不同影响。研究结论为家族企业传承以及创业学研究都提供了有益参考,另外文章中所运用的Smartpls软件在进行探

    2013-01-01

    选取家族企业作为研究对象,在文献研究的基础上,运用实证方法探求了子女继任家族企业意愿的影响因素.本研究的结果表明:(1)子女的内部职业志趣、企业的优势与前景和家长期望对继任意愿有显著正向影响,其中子女的内部职业志趣影响最大;(2)子女的外部职业志趣,企业问题与危机,家族矛盾和冲突及市场就业机会对继任意愿有显著的负向影响.同时,一系列的背景变量也会对子女的继任意愿产生影响.研究显示,男性继任者比女性继任者的继任意愿要高,独生子女比非独生子女的继任意愿要高.企业的规模越大,企业资产越多,子女的继任意愿就越强烈.%This paper targets the family business as the research object.On the basis of literature review,this paper explores the influential factors of succeeding motivation in the successors by empirical methods.The research findings show:(1) offspring's interest in family firms,advantages and prospect of family business,and expectations from parents affect succeeding motivation positively,among which offspring' s interest in family firms has the greatest positive effect.(2)Offspring's interest in non-family firms,problems and crises of family firms,family conflict,and employment chances in the market affect succeeding motivation negatively.Meanwhile,a series of background variables affect the succeeding motivation as well.The research shows that the male's succeeding motivation is higher than that of the female,and the only child's succeeding motivation is higher than that of children with siblings.Bigger firms with higher capital lead to higher succeeding motivation.

    sucesores en dos empresas familiares del estado de Minas Gerais. Se pretende ampliar la comprensión de este proceso por medio de la observación de los retos, dificultades y conflictos que experimentan los sucesores a lo largo de su carrera en la organización. Aunque sin pretender rellenar esta laguna, en el estudio se analizan las complejas cuestiones que plantea el proceso de legitimación en la perspectiva de la familia, de la gestión y de la propiedad. Para ello, se adoptó un enfoque cualitativo, mediante un estudio de caso de dos empresas familiares, lo que permitió comprender las especificidades de la dinámica y del proceso de legitimación de cada empresa estudiada. Los resultados indican que la empresa representa efectivamente una instancia de socialización primaria, que se basa en la idea de compromiso con la continuidad de la empresa familiar. Además, en los casos estudiados se identificaron caminos distintos por medio de los cuales la legitimación se llevó a cabo, lo que refuerza la idea de que se trata de un proceso de construcción social.The issue of succession is theoretically recognized as one of most delicate moments a family-owned company undergoes. Succession as a social process, in which the heir-successor will have to construct his or her legitimacy, has not been closely examined in recent studies in Brazil. This work's objective is to analyze the process of construction of legitimacy by successors in two family-owned organizations in the state of Minas Gerais. It seeks to understand the process through the challenges, difficulties, and conflicts lived by the successors throughout their career in the organization. This study will not completely fill this void, but nevertheless seeks to analyze the complex problematic presented by the process of legitimization from the perspectives of family, management, and property. A qualitative approach was used, operationalized through case studies which allowed for the understanding of dynamic

    2016-01-01

    Background: Research shows that career choices are made as a result of preconceived ideas and exposure to a specialty. If plastic surgery is to continue to attract the best, factors that may dissuade the millennial generation medical students from pursuing plastic surgery as a career must be identified and addressed. We explored the determinants of interest in plastic surgery as a career choice amongst millennial generation medical students. Materials and Methods: A survey regarding factors considered important in choosing plastic surgery was conducted amongst final year medical students in September 2011. Participants were asked to rate their agreement or disagreement with 18 statements on a four-point Likert scale (1 = very unimportant; 4 = very important). Statistical analyses were performed using Chi-square test to compare categorical variables between male and female medical students. Values of P 3.0 was seen in all the subscales except in gender equity and life style concerns. There were statistically significant differences between male and female students in opinions of a spouse, a significant other, or family members in choosing plastic surgery P < 0.5 and my choice of plastic surgery will be influenced by my decision to have a family P < 0.5. Conclusion: Factors influencing the decision of medical students to choose plastic surgery were related to the perceived quality of life as a plastic surgeon and the ability of plastic surgeons to provide good role models for medical students. Female medical students were more concerned with gender equity and work-life balance in selecting plastic surgery compared to male medical students. PMID:27013852

    Full Text Available In recent years, researchers and practitioners are increasingly interested in the role and influence of the forms of business organization on the economy and society. Interpretations of the role of companies in the modern period, ranging from enthusiastic support (as the most important invention of capitalism, an explanation of the Western civilization’s expansion to moderate and often critical positions, where the company is seen as a solution, not necessarily optimal, to market imperfections. On the other hand, we often ponder upon the explanation of political, administrative and infrastructural success of ancient Rome: the state or the enterprise (the private initiative? Closer to our time, we rediscover with amazement that the "dark" Middle Ages are not at all dark and lacking in progress, at least in terms of capitalist organization and logic. The development of trade in the two poles of medieval Europe (the Mediterranean and the BaltoScandinavian area, of industry and trade in the North-Western quadrant (Flanders and neighbouring regions, was concurrent with the improvement of organizational forms of business, with the diversity and flexibility of entrepreneurial or even corporate frameworks. Of course, the study of historical sources (ancient or medieval cannot provide direct answers or solutions to the questions of modern society, because the challenges of today are rather different to those of the past. On the other hand, understanding history can help companies to build a more complete and a wiser enterprise functionality and role in the modern society, to reformulate the questions and to find new solutions. Our paper, with a clear juridical perspective on economic history, focuses on the organization of firms in ancient Rome and medieval Europe, tries to provide examples, useful interpretations and diverse solutions to the problems of contemporary society and economy.

    This paper analyzes how the attempt by feminist epistemologies to overcome the impasse between objectivity and relativism has led to various formulations of the concept of ‘location’ and to the standpoint theory. As a result, the political project of a transnational community of interpreters fostered by transnational feminism can be seen as deriving from such enduring process.

    2016-01-01

    A new antidepressant, levomilnacipran, is the levorotatory enantiomer of milnacipran. The drug belongs to selective serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI) and has the highest noradrenergic selectivity of all members of this group of antidepressants. Clinical trials have confirmed the effectiveness of levomilnacipran in the treatment of depression. The drug was placed on the US market in the form of prolonged-release capsules, which greatly simplifies the treatment of psychiatric patients. The safety of the drug is also higher than the safety of a racemate, resulting in a beneficial impact on the therapeutic effect. In this paper we present current information on the pharmacological and clinical properties of the newest antidepressant--levomilnacipran.

  19. Brave other World? The Africanized Heimatfilm as Successor of the Post-Nazi Heimatfilm?1

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Cornelia Grobner

    2015-10-01

    Full Text Available German-speaking television draws on the success of the famous autobiographical book “The white Masai” from Corinne Hofman. Since its publishing in 1998 solely Austrian public service broadcasting shows every year one to two new film productions that seem to build upon the Hofman novel. This new subgenre of “Africa films” is characterized by its trivial narrative styles and similar topics revolving around a white saviour narrative. As interim findings of a reception research including content analysis and group discussions show that these films use an African setting for the construction of desire, identity, and otherness in German-speaking television. Beyond, it could be argued that the subgenre can be read as continuation of the post-Nazi Heimatfilm – though the levels of power are displaced.

  20. The influence of premature extractions of primary molars on the ultimate root length of their permanent successors.

    Brin, I; Koyoumdijsky-Kaye, E

    1981-06-01

    Final root length of lower premolars which succeed prematurely--extracted primary molars is shortened. The proposed explanation focuses on a possible accelerated movement of the permanent tooth bud and undue environmental stress following the premature extraction of its deciduous predecessor. The degree of shortening is different in both sexes and depends on the age at which the premature extraction is performed. Girls are more affected than boys, especially in cases in which the premature extractions are performed before the age of eight yr.

  1. Ernst Mach and George Sarton's Successors: The Implicit Role Model of Teaching Science in USA and Elsewhere, Part II

    Science.gov (United States)

    Siemsen, Hayo

    2013-05-01

    George Sarton had a strong influence on modern history of science. The method he pursued throughout his life was the method he had discovered in Ernst Mach's Mechanics when he was a student in Ghent. Sarton was in fact throughout his life implementing a research program inspired by the epistemology of Mach. Sarton in turn inspired many others in several generations (James Conant, Thomas Kuhn, Gerald Holton, etc.). What were the origins of these ideas in Mach and what can this origin tell us about the history of science and science education nowadays? Which ideas proved to be successful and which ones need to be improved upon? The following article will elaborate the epistemological questions, which Charles Darwin's "Origin" raised concerning human knowledge and scientific knowledge and which led Mach to adapt the concept of what is "empirical" in contrast to metaphysical a priori assumptions a second time after Galileo. On this basis Sarton proposed "genesis and development" as the major goal of his journal Isis. Mach had elaborated this epistemology in La Connaissance et l'Erreur ( Knowledge and Error), which Sarton read in 1911 (Hiebert in Knowledge and error. Reidel, Dordrecht, 1976; de Mey in George Sarton centennial. Communication & Cognition, Ghent, pp. 3-6, 1984). Accordingly for Sarton, history becomes not only a subject of science, but a method of science education. Culture—and science as part of culture—is a result of a genetic process. History of science shapes and is shaped by science and science education in a reciprocal process. Its epistemology needs to be adapted to scientific facts and the philosophy of science. Sarton was well aware of the need to develop the history of science and the philosophy of science along the lines of this reciprocal process. It was a very fruitful basis, but a specific part of it Sarton did not elaborate further, namely the erkenntnis-theory and psychology of science education. This proved to be a crucial missing element for all of science education in Sarton's succession, especially in the US. Looking again at the origins of the central questions in the thinking of Mach, which provided the basis and gave rise to Sarton's research program, will help in resolving current epistemic and methodological difficulties, contradictions and impasses in science education influenced by Sarton. The difficulties in science education will prevail as long as the omissions from their Machian origins are not systematically recovered and reintegrated.

  9. Stefano Mozzi Scolari «stampadore e miniatore di stampe di rame» in 17th century Venice: life, activity and successors

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Alessia Giachery

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available Born around Brescia around 1612, Stefano Mozzi Scolari was active in Venice between 1644 and 1687 as printer. He was among the firsts to devote his activity entirely to illustrated editions. It is possible to distinguish three fields of his activity: the reproduction of already published copperplates, mainly geographical; the collaboration with Giacomo Piccini and Giovanni Merlo as editor and printer of images commissioned by himself; the one as printer of images drawn by himself. Scolari’s enterprise had two specific features, such as the reproduction of already existing works –more favourable for his printer shop- and the production of images from the city life and the contemporary events. Geographically, his professional activity developed in Venice around the parish church of San Zulian, where he also probably had lived since 1642. He was an active member of the guilds “dei Pittori” between 1660 and 1683 and regular participant in the Capitoli della Scuola del Santissimo Sacramento of San Zulian between 1660 and 1691. The analysis of his three wills provides with several information regarding his family and his professional acquaintances. His personal condition results as that of a well-off craftsman, owner of a printer shop but not more. He died in 1691. Three years before his death, he wrote, together with Francesco Busetto and Giacomo Zini, the inventory of the bookshop of Giovanni Battista Scalvinoni. Further archival records confirm that his nephew, Stephan, was active in the same area as trader of engravings.

    Full Text Available O presente estudo aborda o processo sucessório em organizações familiares enfocando a exclusão da mulher deste processo. Trata-se de um estudo de caráter descritivo e exploratório, utilizando multicasos em organizações familiares localizadas no Estado de Goiás, por meio de entrevista semi-estruturada com diretores(as, gerentes e trabalhadores(as para coleta de dados, analisados com a técnica de análise gráfica do discurso de Lane (1985. Como resultados tem-se que, em decorrência de traços da cultura brasileira e da cultura das organizações pesquisadas, ocorre a exclusão da mulher do processo sucessório de organizações familiares, explicitada de duas formas: desconsiderando desde o início a possibilidade de promover mulheres para cargos de cúpula, ou considerando-as no início, mas descartando-as em etapas posteriores. Foi encontrado um número mínimo de diretores e gerentes do gênero feminino nas organizações pesquisadas, devendo-se salientar que os cargos diretivos e gerenciais ocupados por elas estão relacionados a funções consideradas "femininas".The present study approaches succession process in family firms focusing women exclusion from this process. This is an exploratory and descriptive multicase study in family firms located in the State of Goiás, Brazil, carried out through the means of semi-structured interviews with workers from managerial and operational levels and analyzed with the application of the graphical discourse technique by Lane (1985. The results show that, due to Brazilian culture and family firms' features, women are excluded from the succession process in family firms in two ways: the promotion of women to managerial jobs is not taken into consideration since the beginning of the process, or the possibility is taken into consideration at first but it is rejected later on. In the organizations investigated it was found a low number of directors and managers of feminine gender, and it should be pointed out that these managerial positions taken by women are related to functions considered "feminine".

  13. Questions and answers on the Belgian model of integral end-of-life care: experiment? Prototype? : "Eu-euthanasia": the close historical, and evidently synergistic, relationship between palliative care and euthanasia in Belgium: an interview with a doctor involved in the early development of both and two of his successors.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bernheim, Jan L; Distelmans, Wim; Mullie, Arsène; Ashby, Michael A

    2014-12-01

    This article analyses domestic and foreign reactions to a 2008 report in the British Medical Journal on the complementary and, as argued, synergistic relationship between palliative care and euthanasia in Belgium. The earliest initiators of palliative care in Belgium in the late 1970s held the view that access to proper palliative care was a precondition for euthanasia to be acceptable and that euthanasia and palliative care could, and should, develop together. Advocates of euthanasia including author Jan Bernheim, independent from but together with British expatriates, were among the founders of what was probably the first palliative care service in Europe outside of the United Kingdom. In what has become known as the Belgian model of integral end-of-life care, euthanasia is an available option, also at the end of a palliative care pathway. This approach became the majority view among the wider Belgian public, palliative care workers, other health professionals, and legislators. The legal regulation of euthanasia in 2002 was preceded and followed by a considerable expansion of palliative care services. It is argued that this synergistic development was made possible by public confidence in the health care system and widespread progressive social attitudes that gave rise to a high level of community support for both palliative care and euthanasia. The Belgian model of so-called integral end-of-life care is continuing to evolve, with constant scrutiny of practice and improvements to procedures. It still exhibits several imperfections, for which some solutions are being developed. This article analyses this model by way of answers to a series of questions posed by Journal of Bioethical Inquiry consulting editor Michael Ashby to the Belgian authors.

  15. Hiring a Family CEO or a Non-family CEO? Research on the CEO Successor Choice Based on Heterogeneous Goals of Controlling Families%雇亲属还是聘专家:基于控股家族目标异质性的CEO聘任研究

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2016-01-01

    It is an important strategic succession decision to hire CEOs from family members or professional managers for the first generation entrepreneurs to handle over the management rights. A lot of studies on family business imply that CEOs who are members of the founding families underperform, but still a few family firms, even some public firms, hire the family members as CEOs in the reality. To explain the seemingly inefficiency succession decisions, this paper sets management professionalization of private firms under the background of trans-generation succession, extends the focus from profit-seeking firms to families behind the firms, and explores the antecedents of succession decisions from the perspectives of the heterogeneous goals of controlling families. According to a multi-task principal-agent model, it establishes a matching framework between companies and CEOs driven by noneconomic goals of controlling families, and finds that families that pay more attention to noneconomic goals tend to give lower-level incentive compensation contracts, require lower-degree capabilities of the CEO candidates to run the businesses and prefer the family identity of CEOs. It tries to confirm that the succession decisions of CEOs are endogenous from the heterogeneous goals of controlling families, and make up the theoretical gap of logic relationship between willingness and abilities of families. The analysis of the antecedents of succession decisions of family firms deepens the organization theory in the context of family businesses and gives some advices on succession decisions for the first generation entrepreneurs.%年老的一代创业者将经营权让渡给家族成员还是职业经理人,是控股家族的重要战略决策。虽然有众多经验研究显示聘家族CEO不利于企业绩效,但现实经济中有较多公司即便是上市公司仍然雇用家族成员做CEO。为解释这种看似“无效率”的聘任安排,本文将民营企业管理职业化问题置于代际传承的背景下,将关注焦点从营利性的企业拓展到其背后的家族,从控股家族的异质性目标探索企业聘任决策的前因变量。借助多任务委托代理模型,提出控股家族非经济目标驱动下公司与CEO的匹配框架,发现更加重视非经济目标的家族倾向于提供较低激励强度的薪酬合约,对高管的经验和能力要求较低,同时更加重视CEO的家族身份。该研究试图论证企业CEO的聘任决策内生于家族异质性目标,尝试填补家族的意愿和控制能力之间逻辑关系的理论性缺口。对家族企业聘任决策前因变量的分析,既深化了家族企业情境下的组织理论研究,也为一代创业者让渡经营权提供了决策建议。

  11. DETERMINANTS OF INTERNAL VS. EXTERNAL CEO SUCCESSIONS IN MALAYSIAN PUBLIC LISTED COMPANIES

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rokiah Ishak

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Following a CEO turnover, a company may select an internal or external successor. The objective of this study is to determine if firm performance, board attributes, ownership structure and incumbent power influence the decision of whether to elect an internal or external candidate. Results from logistic regression analysis on 145 succession events over a four-year period (2002 to 2005 indicate that firms which are controlled by blockholders tend to select an outsider as the successor. Further, firms that are controlled by family members and position their former CEOs within the firms are more likely to select insiders as successors. However, firm performance, board composition, CEO duality and turnover type do not affect the selection choice. This study implies that poor firm performance does not necessarily lead to outside CEO selection choice. Further, boards of Malaysian PLCs are not effective in choosing outsiders as successors as both board composition and CEO duality do not necessarily select outsiders to become new CEOs. Another implication of this study is that former CEOs who continue their directorship in the same companies do have some power in naming new CEOs as the former tend to select insiders as successors.

  12. Beyond the Hubble Space Telescope: Early Development of the Next Generation Space Telescope

    Science.gov (United States)

    Smith, Robert W.; Patrick McCray, W.

    In this paper we investigate the early history of what was at first called the Next Generation Space Telescope, later to be renamed the James Webb Space Telescope. We argue that the initial ideas for such a Next Generation Space Telescope were developed in the context of the planning for a successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. Much the most important group of astronomers and engineers examining such a successor was based at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore. By the late 1980s, they had fashioned concepts for a successor that would work in optical, ultraviolet and infrared wavelengths, concepts that would later be regarded as politically unrealistic given the costs associated with them. We also explore how the fortunes of the planned Next Generation Space Telescope were intimately linked to that of its "parent," the Hubble Space Telescope.

  13. Innovation or Tradition? Succession to the Kingship in Temenid Macedonia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Selene E. Psoma

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available This article attempts to show that the free designation of the successor to the throne by Ptolemy I and Seleukos I, and the association in power of the successor during the last years of the king’s reign, was not an innovation of the age of the Diadochi but an old Macedonian practice. Using IG II/III2 102, the treaty between Athens, Amyntas II and his son Alexander as a starting point, this work collects all the evidence for the designation of the succesor to the throne in the Temenid Kingdom, discusses previous theories about succession, and argues that the successor was designated by the king himself, who appears to have had full jurisdiction to decide on the matter freely, unimpeded by custom or law.

  14. Informed Heuristics for Guiding Stem-and-Cycle Ejection Chains

    CERN Document Server

    Harabor, Daniel

    2011-01-01

    The state of the art in local search for the Traveling Salesman Problem is dominated by ejection chain methods utilising the Stem-and-Cycle reference structure. Though effective such algorithms employ very little information in their successor selection strategy, typically seeking only to minimise the cost of a move. We propose an alternative approach inspired from the AI literature and show how an admissible heuristic can be used to guide successor selection. We undertake an empirical analysis and demonstrate that this technique often produces better results than less informed strategies albeit at the cost of running in higher polynomial time.

    2012-01-01

    Effective succession planning is the heart of leadership development and an essential business strategy because it enhances the ability to achieve orderly transitions and maintain productivity levels. The results of this study are consistent with previous studies that exhibit a positive association of previous years' performance with internal succession planning. The key to successful succession planning lies in building a solid foundation of profitability. Having successors ready to fill key vacancies helps improve operational condition and the bottom line, and thus, gives a competitive edge in the market. Preparing successors for leadership may determine which organizations simply survive and which thrive and lead their markets down the road.

  18. Management of a Severely Submerged Primary Molar: A Case Report

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Ankylosis is a condition frequently associated with primary molars, wherein the ankylosed primary teeth remain in a fixed position, while the adjacent teeth continue to erupt, moving occlusally. In this case report, a five-year-old boy, who had a retained and submerged left lower second primary molar, was presented. Luxation of ankylosed primary molar was considered as a treatment approach. After four months, the tooth erupted to the occlusal level, and there was evidence of further development of a permanent successor in radiographic evaluation. After one year, tooth mobility, bone formation, and development of a permanent successor were in good condition.

    2009-01-01

    Hopeless retained primary teeth without permanent successors represent a restorative challenge for clinicians, along with esthetic and functional problems for patients. While various treatment approaches for congenitally missing teeth have been proposed, the replacement of a missing tooth with a dental implant offers specific advantages, such as preservation of the alveolar crest and elimination of the need to restore the adjacent teeth, over other options for tooth replacement. The aim of this article was to illustrate the surgical and prosthetic treatment with implants of a patient with primary teeth without permanent successors.

    Full Text Available This article discusses the hereditary succession in small family farms, from the perspective of decision theory, especially considering the decision making process, which become potential successors (children and successful (parents considering the different factors that influence this process. For the empirical analysis, it was considered a sample of 50 farmers in the municipality of Frederico Westphalen / RS, since the rural municipality medium is predominantly made up of small family farms and, over time, has undergone constant changes due youth exodus, a fact that is causing a number of social and economic problems to local rural development. To measure this reality questionnaires were applied to farmers and their potential successors.

    The geometry optimization of the transition state, the precursor complex and the successor complex was performed at the 6-311G* basis set level. From the analysis of the vibrational frequency of the precursor complex, transition state, successor complex and the isolated state, the reaction mechanism was derived which was complicated with the boni-rupture electron transfer theory. The atom H in molecule HCl attacks the atom C, forming a transition state via the precursor complex and the electron-transfer happens in precursor complex.Ami the active energy, electronic coupling matrix element,the reorganization energy, and the reaction rate are obtained.

    2002-01-01

    Based on both the Rabin's scheme and the Chinese remainder theorem, this paper presents a secure accesscontrol scheme for the hierarchy structure. Compared to the existing access control schemes, the scheme's key gener-ation algorithm and derivation algorithm of successor's keys are simple. In the scheme, the predecessor not only canefficiently derive secret keys of its successors, but also can withstand the attack of collusion. The scheme's dynamicfeature is perfect. Moreover, each security class in hierarchy structure can freely select/change his own key withoutaltering other keys present in the system.

  4. Forward Analysis of Dynamic Network of Pushdown Systems Is Easier without Order

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lugiez, Denis

    Dynamic networks of Pushdown Systems (PDN in short) have been introduced to perform static analysis of concurrent programs that may spawn threads dynamically. In this model the set of successors of a regular set of configurations can be non-regular, making forward analysis of these models difficult. We refine the model by adding the associative-commutative properties of parallel composition, and we define Presburger weighted tree automata, an extension of weighted automata and tree automata, that accept the set of successors of a regular set of configurations. This allows forward analysis of PDN since these automata have a decidable emptiness problem and are closed under intersection.

    Using listed companies in China’s A-share market from 1997 to 2009,this paper investigates the relationship between controller changes(including changes in controlling shareholders,directors and CEOs) and auditor changes.The empirical evidence indicates that controller changes are positively related to auditor changes and that auditor changes are more likely if there are extensive controller changes.For companies in which both the controlling shareholder and the auditor change,if the successor controlling shareholder is controlled by an other-province government,the auditor is more likely to be replaced and the successor auditor is more likely to be a smaller auditor from the same province as the new controlling shareholder.

    NASA is planning a successor to the Hubble Space Telescope designed to study the origins of galaxies, stars, planets and life in the universe. In this talk, Dr. Gardner will discuss the origin and evolution of galaxies, beginning with the Big Bang and tracing what we have learned with Hubble through to the present day. He will show that results from studies with Hubble have led to plans for its successor, the James Webb Space Telescope. Webb is scheduled to launch in 2014, and is designed to find the first galaxies that formed in the distant past and to penetrate the dusty clouds of gas where stars are still forming today. He will compare Webb to Hubble, and discuss recent progress in the construction of the observatory.

    Dai Junwu(戴君武); Mai Tong; George C. Lee; Qi Xiaozhai(齐霄斋); Bai Wenting(白文婷)

    2004-01-01

    This paper studies the dynamic responses of SDOF system under pulse-dominant excitations. The purpose of the study is to prepare for scrutiny of some near-field pulse-dominant ground motions and their potential to cause structural damage. Extending the single pulse dynamics, we consider the effect of pulse sequences. This kind of excitation was particularly obvious in some of previous earthquakes such as Northridge (1994) and Chi-Chi (1995). Based on the duration,peak and rise and decay era of the main pulse as well as its relationship with the predecessor and successor pulses, we propose a classification for the pulse sequences. Consequent studies have been carried out for acceleration, velocity and displacement response spectra of the main pulse with either a predecessor or a successor pulse. The analysis also includes general response behaviors in different fundamental period segments and special aspects of response at certain points (e.g., the corresponding peak points).

  16. Obturation of a Retained Primary Maxillary Second Molar Using BiodentineTM: A Case Report

    Science.gov (United States)

    2017-01-01

    Maxillary molars have highly variable root canal morphology. However, the presence of the two roots is a rare occurrence. The success of pulpectomy treatment depends on removal of infected pulp and filling it with a biocompatible material. In order to achieve it, the clinicians should understand the morphology of the individual root canal and atypical root canal configuration. The purpose of this article was to describe an unusual anatomy in primary maxillary second molar with missing successor tooth. Biodentine™ a new dentine substitute was used as an obturating material for retained maxillary second molar. After 24 months follow up, the success of Biodentine™ for management of primary tooth with missing successor was evaluated and reported.

  17. Design and Implement an Novel File Access Prediction Model in Linux

    2004-01-01

    So far, file access prediction models is mainly based on either the file access frequency or the historical record of the latest access. In this paper, a new file access prediction model called frequency- and recency-based successor (FRS) is presented which combines the advantages of the file frequency with the historical record. FRS model has the capability of rapid response to workload changes and can predict future events with greater accuracy than most of other prediction models. To evaluate the performance of FRS mode, the Linux kernel is modified to predict and prefetch upcoming accesses. The experiment shows that FRS can accurately predict approximately 80% of all file access events, while maintaining an immediate successor queue (ISQ) per-file which only requires regular dynamic updates.

    LIUJianxun; YAOYinxiong; TANGXinhuai

    2004-01-01

    In order to make the execution of workflow in an enterprise more efficient, this paper introduces the concept of task pre-dispatching into Workflow management systems (WfMS). A formalized workflow model is presented to support such a concept. This workflow model is built based on the fact that a task's lifecycle can be partitioned into two parts: preparation phase and actual execution phase in workflow model. So when a task is processed, its' successor will be informed to prepare. Therefore, the actual execution of a task and the preparation of its' successor can be done concurrently. As a result, the whole lifecycle of the process can be shortened and the efficiency will be improved. The presented model is analyzed quantitatively at last.

  19. Planning for physician succession: no longer a luxury.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Stanton, J

    1995-01-01

    Many physicians are opting for early retirement rather than contend with the increasing loss of control within the changing health care environment. Unfortunately, these retirements are often abrupt--the physician is unaware until it's too late that quick transitions to new successors can yield disastrous financial results. Physicians sometimes overestimate the intrinsic value of their practices. Sometimes they are emotionally unprepared for the change, and bail out at the last minute. In either case, unplanned successions often result in a serious loss of practice value for the physician and a loss of market share for affiliated hospitals and groups. Physicians and administrators must work together to prepare a succession plan allowing adequate time to phase in the new successor. This helps maintain practice value, ensuring there are no unpleasant surprises when the physician retires. In this article, the author also provides a checklist containing succession plan guidelines.

    2008-01-01

    A qualitative mini-case study of I. King Jordan and his leadership style explores the influence of a transformational leader on Gallaudet University and the Deaf community. The study features a template-style semistructured interview with Jordan regarding his perceptions of leadership and his personal insights. The study highlights the attributes of transformational leadership and encourages further research into leadership as a tool for change in the Deaf community and the disability rights movement. This exploration of the leadership style of Gallaudet's first Deaf president is especially timely; the study was conducted between Jordan's retirement announcement and the Gallaudet Board of Trustees' decision to rescind an offer to his announced successor to become the university's next president. That tumultuous transition accentuated the disconnect between Jordan's transformational, charismatic leadership style, which affected generations of the Deaf community, and his followers' dissatisfaction with his management and successor planning.

    Retained primary molars without permanent successors often undergo progressive infra-occlusion, without predictable exfoliation. Early prophylactic removal, after assessment of root resorption and adjacent periodontal support loss as well as age of onset, is often indicated. This article describes the joint orthodontic-restorative care of such a case and describes an alternative method of restoration using a fibre-reinforced ceromeric bridge. As well as a conservative preparation and good aesthetics, an overlay restoration provided a fully functional occlusion.

    The Transylvanian Enlightenment is a very contained phenomenon, yet fully fledged, attributed to a group of intellectuals in the last two decades of the eighteenth century known as the Transylvanian School. However, efforts towards Enlightenment appear much sooner, made possible by Uniate Bishop Inochentie Micu Klein’s ideas and especially through the actions of his successor, Petru Pavel Aron. With the financial help of the Habsburg Empire, particularly that of Empress Maria Theresa, Bishop ...

    Retention of primary teeth beyond their expected exfoliation date is encountered relatively frequently. Most commonly this is due to absence of the permanent successor. In this article patient assessment and the restorative treatment options are discussed with particular emphasis on retention of the primary tooth/teeth in the medium to long-term. The restorative techniques that may be used to improve aesthetics and function of retained primary teeth are illustrated. Consideration of this minimally invasive approach is commended in such cases.

    We present a probabilistic model of events in continuous time in which each event triggers a Poisson process of successor events. The ensemble of observed events is thereby modeled as a superposition of Poisson processes. Efficient inference is feasible under this model with an EM algorithm. Moreover, the EM algorithm can be implemented as a distributed algorithm, permitting the model to be applied to very large datasets. We apply these techniques to the modeling of Twitter messages and the revision history of Wikipedia.

Complete knowledge and understanding of tooth anatomy is essential to carry out high quality dental treatment with excellent outcome. In addition, the persistent primary tooth and its missing permanent successor in the dental arch pose several hurdles in front of the clinician due to doubtful survival of primary tooth. In this paper, highlights the root canal treatment of a rarest four rooted retained primary maxillary second m...

    Not only the public debate about science but even the way scientists conceive their own work is to some extent determined by cultural images. In the case of synthetic biology, literary figures like the Golem of Prague and its successors, such as Frankenstein's monster, seem to suggest themselves. This article reconstructs some cognitive structures underlying the surface of metaphorical thinking and shows how talking about synthetic biology as similar to Golem-making obscures important ontological, pragmatic, and ethical differences.

Together they constitute the beginnings of an ongoing quarrel over the environmental foundation of capitalism.

    Full Text Available After the dissolution of the Habsburg Empire, leaders in successor states were eager to become economically independent from the former capital Vienna. They therefore quickly implemented a set of neomercantilistic measures, especially nationalization programs. Nevertheless, the 1920s saw a reestablishment of the common market in the former territories of the Habsburg Empire in terms of interregional trade and interlocking directorates, mainly because of the business strategy of international financial syndicates that were based on the traditional Viennese commercial relations with the successor states. The international credit of Jewish bankers like Louis Rothschild, Rudolf Sieghart, and Max Feilchenfeld and others mattered. After the “Big Bang” at Wall Street in 1929, the industrial holdings of the Viennese banks and the maturity problem (short-term borrowing, long-term lending in their relations to East European debtors and Western financiers caused the Creditanstalt-crisis of 1931 and put an end to Vienna’s position as a financial hub in East Central Europe. However, even during the crisis of the 1930s, the share of the successor states in the bilateral balances of trade indicates path dependency on a smaller scale.

  9. Iterable Forward Reachability Analysis of Monitor-DPNs

    Benedikt Nordhoff

    2013-09-01

    Full Text Available There is a close connection between data-flow analysis and model checking as observed and studied in the nineties by Steffen and Schmidt. This indicates that automata-based analysis techniques developed in the realm of infinite-state model checking can be applied as data-flow analyzers that interpret complex control structures, which motivates the development of such analysis techniques for ever more complex models. One approach proposed by Esparza and Knoop is based on computation of predecessor or successor sets for sets of automata configurations. Our goal is to adapt and exploit this approach for analysis of multi-threaded Java programs. Specifically, we consider the model of Monitor-DPNs for concurrent programs. Monitor-DPNs precisely model unbounded recursion, dynamic thread creation, and synchronization via well-nested locks with finite abstractions of procedure- and thread-local state. Previous work on this model showed how to compute regular predecessor sets of regular configurations and tree-regular successor sets of a fixed initial configuration. By combining and extending different previously developed techniques we show how to compute tree-regular successor sets of tree-regular sets. Thereby we obtain an iterable, lock-sensitive forward reachability analysis. We implemented the analysis for Java programs and applied it to information flow control and data race detection.

    In this paper we present an implicit dynamic dictionary with the working-set property, supporting \\op{insert}($e$) and \\op{delete}($e$) in $O(\\log n)$ time, \\op{predecessor}($e$) in $O(\\log \\ws{\\pred(e)})$ time, \\op{successor}($e$) in $O(\\log \\ws{\\succ(e)})$ time and \\op{search}($e$) in $O(\\log \\min(\\ws{\\pred(e)},\\ws{e}, \\ws{\\succ(e)}))$ time, where $n$ is the number of elements stored in the dictionary, $\\ws{e}$ is the number of distinct elements searched for since element $e$ was last searched for and $\\pred(e)$ and $\\succ(e)$ are the predecessor and successor of $e$, respectively. The time-bounds are all worst-case. The dictionary stores the elements in an array of size $n$ using \\emph{no} additional space. In the cache-oblivious model the $\\log$ is base $B$ and the cache-obliviousness is due to our black box use of an existing cache-oblivious implicit dictionary. This is the first implicit dictionary supporting predecessor and successor searches in the working-set bound. Previous implicit structures requi...

  11. The Faculty of Language Integrates the Two Core Systems of Number

    2017-01-01

    Only humans possess the faculty of language that allows an infinite array of hierarchically structured expressions (Hauser et al., 2002; Berwick and Chomsky, 2015). Similarly, humans have a capacity for infinite natural numbers, while all other species seem to lack such a capacity (Gelman and Gallistel, 1978; Dehaene, 1997). Thus, the origin of this numerical capacity and its relation to language have been of much interdisciplinary interest in developmental and behavioral psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and linguistics (Dehaene, 1997; Hauser et al., 2002; Pica et al., 2004). Hauser et al. (2002) and Chomsky (2008) hypothesize that a recursive generative operation that is central to the computational system of language (called Merge) can give rise to the successor function in a set-theoretic fashion, from which capacities for discretely infinite natural numbers may be derived. However, a careful look at two domains in language, grammatical number and numerals, reveals no trace of the successor function. Following behavioral and neuropsychological evidence that there are two core systems of number cognition innately available, a core system of representation of large, approximate numerical magnitudes and a core system of precise representation of distinct small numbers (Feigenson et al., 2004), I argue that grammatical number reflects the core system of precise representation of distinct small numbers alone. In contrast, numeral systems arise from integrating the pre-existing two core systems of number and the human language faculty. To the extent that my arguments are correct, linguistic representations of number, grammatical number, and numerals do not incorporate anything like the successor function. PMID:28360870

In this process, the role played by a mentor in the successor growth is worth studying. Based on the interviews of the inheritance of the business cases and using the method of grounded theo-ry research, the paper conducts a field investigation to study the impact of mentor existence on the transmission performance and to discuss the effect of different categories of mentors from the perspective of a mentor’ s guiding role. This study reveals a mentor’ s role in the guidance of a successor in the professional and spiritual planes, thus building the concept model by which a mentor can guide a successor’ s growth. .

    2011-02-01

    The declaredly atheoretical DSM-III (and its successors), the diagnostic manual of the American Psychiatric Association, was created to enhance diagnostic reliability for research, epidemiological survey, and governmental and insurance categorization and reimbursement purposes. It has, however, exhibited many inadequacies for psychodynamic diagnosis and case formulation for treatment planning and outcome assessment, and its claimed diagnostic reliability has turned out to be less than originally projected. The psychoanalytically sponsored Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual (PDM) marks a return to a theoretically (psychoanalytically) based diagnostic frame and was created as a supplement to, or replacement for, DSM (depending on the precise clinical need), for use in psychodynamic diagnosis and treatment planning.

    1999-01-01

    Since the 16th century, art historians have debated the methods of medieval artists. A frequent topic of discussion and one that has been invoked at times to distinguish the medieval artist from his early modern successor is the extent to which medieval art is based on the observation of nature. In this vein, much recent commentary has focused on selected works whose descriptiveness challenges the schematism of most medieval imagery. As argued here, assessing these images and the visual evidence they present of the artist's working method requires a methodology that is sensitive to the syntax of visual communication.

    The muon and anti-muon neutrino energy spectrum is determined from 2000-2003 AMANDA telescope data using regularised unfolding. This is the first measurement of atmospheric neutrinos in the energy range 2-200 TeV. The result is compared to different atmospheric neutrino models and it is compatible with the atmospheric neutrinos from pion and kaon decays. No significant contribution from charm hadron decays or extraterrestrial neutrinos is detected. The capabilities to improve the measurement of the neutrino spectrum with the successor experiment IceCube are discussed.

    What is the slightest modification of ZF to add a complement-axiom? The answer in my Ph.D. thesis 1971 was ZF'': Zermelo-Fraenkel with replacement for only well-founded domains and an omega-axiom. In 1974, Alonzo Church published a similar system, as did Urs Oswald in 1976. In his 1976 Ph.D. thesis, E. Mitchell also designed, a system very similar to ZF''. In this article we argue that ZF'' is the slightest modification of ZF among all these systems and that its successor ZFK is the simplest set theory with a universal set at all.

    The purpose of this report was to present the iatrogenic complications that may result from the management of ankylosed primary teeth as well as describe the case of a patient with an ankylosed primary mandibular left second molar which was surgically extracted and an adjacent primary first molar that was cemented with a distal shoe space maintainer. Aggressive surgical removal of the ankylosed tooth caused damage to the developing crown of the successor. Improper placement of the appliance caused perforation of the developing tooth follicle. Orthodontic therapy and a polycarbonate temporary crown were used to restore occlusion. Nonsurgical extractions and alternative appliances should be considered when treating patients with ankylosed primary second molars.

    Potential extreme ultraviolet and soft x-ray radiation sources have been identified, using the flexible atomic code (FAC), as emission peaks arising from the 4d-4f and 4p-4d transitions in Pd-like to Rb-like ions of hafnium through actinium. The effects of configuration interaction are investigated and for increasing nuclear charge, these strong emitters are seen to separate and move to shorter wavelengths. Each source is characterized using the unresolved transition array model. They are proposed to complement the currently used nitrogen and argon sources in the 'water window', and as possible successors to tin in next-generation lithography.

    Digital photography is no longer simply a successor to film. The digital market is now driven by additional devices such as mobile phones with camera and video functions (camphones) as well as innovative products derived from digital files. A large number of consumers do not print their images and non-printing has become the major enemy of wholesale printers, home printing suppliers and retailers. This paper addresses the challenge facing our industry, namely how to encourage the consumer to print images easily and conveniently from all types of digital media.

    This article presents comprehensive technical information about STRAIGHT and TANDEM-STRAIGHT, a widely used speech modification tool and its successor. They share the same concept: the periodic excitation found in voiced sounds is an efficient mechanism for transmitting underlying smooth time–frequency representation. The tools are also based on the perceptual equivalence of two sets of independent Gaussian random signals. This equivalence makes it possible to discard input phase information intentionally and enables flexible manipulation of parameters.

    @@ The Shanghai Communiqué jointly issued by China and the United States in April 1972 came as a great shock to other Western countries. Within China, the September 13 Incident in 1971, in which Lin Biao, officially designated Chairman Mao Zedong's successor, attempted an unsuccessful flee to the Soviet Union, posed an ever bigger challenge to the theory and practice of the Cultural Revolution. With these favorable conditions, however, relations between China and the United States that could have achieved a rapid development stagnated unexpectedly for quite a long time between the détente and the official establishment of diplomatic relations.

    2012-04-01

    Full Text Available In the wake of the death of (antipope Clement III at Civita Castellana in the year 1100, various written sources bore witness to the many miracles – the «plurima miracula» – that occurred around his tomb.  These miracles contributed to the spread of the fame of Clement’s sanctity, which was strongly upheld by the anti-Gregorian party and resolutely opposed by Gregory VII’s successors. Affirmed by some, contrasted by others, and ultimately condemned to oblivion, Clement III’s sanctity amply illustrates the reasons why the reform of the eleventh century cannot be interpreted as an unambiguous, linear process.

    SCOP2 is a successor to the Structural Classification of Proteins (SCOP) database that organizes proteins of known structure according to their structural and evolutionary relationships. It was designed to provide a more advanced framework for the classification of proteins. The SCOP2 classification is described in terms of a directed acyclic graph in which each node defines a relationship of particular type that is represented by a region of protein structure and sequence. The SCOP2 data are accessible via SCOP2-Browser and SCOP2-Graph. This protocol unit describes different ways to explore and investigate the SCOP2 evolutionary and structural groupings.

  9. Snake-in-the-Box Codes for Rank Modulation

    2011-01-01

    Motivated by the rank-modulation scheme with applications to flash memory, we consider Gray codes capable of detecting a single error, also known as snake-in-the-box codes. We study two error metrics: Kendall's $\\tau$-metric, which applies to charge-constrained errors, and the $\\ell_\\infty$-metric, which is useful in the case of limited magnitude errors. In both cases we construct snake-in-the-box codes with rate asymptotically tending to 1. We also provide efficient successor-calculation functions, as well as ranking and unranking functions. Finally, we also study bounds on the parameters of such codes.

    We have developed a special-purpose computer for gravitational many-body simulations, GRAPE-5. GRAPE-5 is the successor of GRAPE-3. Both consist of eight custom pipeline chips (G5 chip and GRAPE chip). The difference between GRAPE-5 and GRAPE-3 are: (1) The G5 chip contains two pipelines operating at 80 MHz, while the GRAPE chip had one at 20 MHz. Thus, the calculation speed of the G5 chip and that of GRAPE-5 board are 8 times faster than that of GRAPE chip and GRAPE-3 board. (2) The GRAPE-5 ...

    Wheeler, Jonathan

    Students and faculty at the Gravitational Wave Group in Birmingham, UK developed a remake of the classic 1972 game of Pong. Black Hole Pong was developed to be used in events such as science fairs as a way to engage children and pique interest in black holes. I present the results of a study which assesses the utility of Black Hole Pong and its successors in raising awareness of gravitational wave research, and in fostering conceptual understanding of astrophysics and gravity. Of particular interest in this study is potential use in high school science classrooms during astrophysics units.

    In late October 1995, I found a remarkable message on my answering machine from Ed Weiler, then the Program Scientist for the Hubble Space Telescope. Would I work on the next generation space telescope, the successor to the beautiful HST? It took me mere moments to work out the answer: Of course! At the time, my work on the COsmic Background Explorer (COBE) was finished, I was writing a book about it (The Very First Light, with John Boslough), and I thought NASA might never do anything nearly as spectacular again. Wow, was I happy to be surprised by that call!

  14. Engineering Life into Technology: the Application of Complexity Theory to a Potential Phase Transition in Intelligence

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2010-02-01

    Full Text Available Information optimization is a centerpiece phenomenon in the universe. It develops from simplicity, then continuously breaks symmetry and cycles through instability to progress to increasingly dense nodes of complexity and diversity. Intelligence has arisen as the information optimization node with the greatest complexity. A contemporary imbalance is presented in that exponentially growing technology could be poised as a potential sole successor to human intelligence. A complex dynamical system is emerging in response, the engineering of life into technology. Numerous network elements are developing which could self-organize into the next node of symmetry, a phase transition in intelligence.

  15. Stability of Cellular Automata Trajectories Revisited: Branching Walks and Lyapunov Profiles

    Science.gov (United States)

    Baetens, Jan M.; Gravner, Janko

    2016-10-01

    We study non-equilibrium defect accumulation dynamics on a cellular automaton trajectory: a branching walk process in which a defect creates a successor on any neighborhood site whose update it affects. On an infinite lattice, defects accumulate at different exponential rates in different directions, giving rise to the Lyapunov profile. This profile quantifies instability of a cellular automaton evolution and is connected to the theory of large deviations. We rigorously and empirically study Lyapunov profiles generated from random initial states. We also introduce explicit and computationally feasible variational methods to compute the Lyapunov profiles for periodic configurations, thus developing an analog of Floquet theory for cellular automata.

    While uptake of renewable energies as a solution to climate change is widely discussed, the issue of public vs. private financing is not yet adequately explored. The debates over the Kyoto Protocol and its successor, culminating in the COP15 Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in December 2009, maintained a strong preference for public over private financing. Yet it is also clear to most observers that the energy revolution will never happen without the involvement of private finance to drive private investment. In this Viewpoint, we discuss the ways in which private financing could be mobilized to drive the energy industrial revolution that is needed if climate change mitigation is to succeed. (author)

    Henri Becquerel presented the discovery of radium by Pierre and Marie Curie at the Paris Académie des Sciences on 26th December 1898. One century later, radium has been abandoned, mainly for the reason of radiation safety concerns. It is, however, likely that modern techniques of brachytherapy are the successors of those designed for radium sources, and that radium has cured thousands and thousands patients all over the word for about 80 years. The history of discovery and medical use of radium is summarised.

    Full Text Available The goal of the 2009 UN Climate Change Conference, commonly known as the Copenhagen Summit, has been to reach a legally binding agreement between participant states. As a successor to the Kyoto Protocol, this sort of agreement would have engaged signatory parties with reducing their greenhouse gas emissions in order to prevent the rise with 2 degrees Celsius in global temperature. This paper is an analysis of the above-mentioned event, which focuses on itsmain result, namely the Copenhagen Accord. It also presents the role of the European Union at the Copenhagen Summit and in promoting sustainable development globally.
