    WALTER R. COURTENAY, JR., ichthyologist and retired professor, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, Florida, died in Gainesville, Florida, on 30 January 2014 at age 80. Walt was born in Neenah, Wisconsin, on 6 November 1933, son of Walter and Emily Courtenay. Walt's interest in fish began at a young age as evidenced by a childhood diary in which at 13 years of age he wrote about his first catch—a two-and-a-half pound “pike” from Lake Winnebago. When Walt turned ten, the family moved from Wisconsin to Nashville, Tennessee, the move precipitated by his father accepting a position as pastor of the First Presbyterian Church. During those early days in Nashville, Walt's father would take summers off and travel to Michigan to teach at Camp Miniwanca along the shore of Lake Michigan where father and son honed their angling skills. It was also at that time Walt's father had definite views on what his son should be doing in adult life—in Walt's case it was to become a medical doctor. However, his Woods Hole internship in marine biology and oceanography toward the end of his undergraduate years was a transformative experience for him so much so that he abandoned all ideas of becoming a medical doctor and instead specialized in ichthyology and oceanography. Apart from the inherent interest and opportunities Woods Hole opened to him, being back at the shore of a large body of water, in this case the Atlantic Ocean, was far more interesting than sitting in lectures on organic chemistry. With that, Walt completed his B.A. degree at Vanderbilt University in 1956. In 1960 while in graduate school in Miami, Walt met and married Francine Saporito, and over the next several years had two children, Walter III and Catherine. He went on to receive his M.S. in 1961 from The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami on the systematics of the genus Haemulon (grunts) and his Ph.D. degree in 1965 working under his advisor C. Richard

    To investigate the species of Cheyletoidea mites breeding in the culture environment of Eupolyphaga sinensis and to observe the morphology of Eucheyletia reticulata Cunliffe. The soil samples from an E. sinensis farm in northern Anhui were collected. The mites in the soil samples were separated directly under a microscope and the glass specimens were made to observe the morphological feature of the mites under a light microscope, then the mites species were identified and classified based on the morphological characteristics. In the culture soil of E. sinensis , totally 7 kinds of Cheyletoidea mites were isolated, namely Eucheyletia reticulata Cunliffe, Cheyletus eruditus Schrank, Cheyletus malaccensis Oudemans, Cheyletus troussarti Oudemans, Cheyletus aveisor Rohdendorz, Acaropsis sollers Rohdendorz and Cheletomorpha lepidopterorum Shaw. They belonged to genera Eucheyletia , Cheletomorpha , Acaropsis and Cheyletus of Cheyletidae Leach family. The Eucheyletia reticulata Cunliffe was firstly found in the culture environment of E. sinensis , and its gnathosoma was large, the pedipalpal femurs were expanding and there were two strips of comb hair and two smooth bristles on the pedipalpal tarsus, and the back of the body was covered with two pieces of tergum, which were decorated with reticular pattern. The body and foot setae were fan-shape. There are various of Cheyletoidea mites found in the breeding environment of E. sinensis . These mites are important species for pest control in the culture environments of E. sinensis . Related measures should be taken to prevent the excessive growth of Cheyletoidea mites, so as to avoid the adverse effects on the quality and quantity of E. sinensis .

  8. Tribute to Daniel Simon

    CERN Multimedia

    2011-01-01

    Daniel Simon, PS Division Leader from 1994 to 1999, died on 2 June, 2011, at the age of 74, in Nancy. CERN owes him for a great number of contributions to the experimental areas around the PS and the existence of the Antiproton Decelerator (AD).   Daniel came to CERN in 1962 from the University of Nancy. He first worked in the Nuclear Physics Apparatus (NPA) Division on the electrostatic separators for the secondary beams at the PS, a subject he also chose for his thesis. Then, as a member of the PS-Division, he designed a variety of beam lines, including those providing protons and antiprotons to ICE, the decisive experiment for CERN to launch the antiproton project, based on stochastic cooling. His contributions to the initial layout and further evolution of the experimental areas of LEAR were essential for the success of the LEAR programme. He subsequently drove the decision and worked on the conversion of LEAR into LEIR for the provision of lead-ions to the LHC. He was one of the leaders of t...

    2015-01-01

    It was with great sadness and emotion that we learnt of the death of our colleague and friend Daniel Brandt.   Throughout his career, Daniel was a faithful servant of the Organization, notably through his work as an expert in beam optics and collective effects. In particular, he contributed to the optimisation of the performance of LEP and later to theoretical studies on beam dynamics for the LHC. Daniel’s personal qualities made him a most pleasant colleague, always passionate and respectful. He tirelessly encouraged his students, giving them an excellent foundation in the field of accelerator physics to prepare them for their professional lives. The success and prospects of young physicists were a constant concern for him; in fact he believed they were absolutely essential. His commitment to students and his passion for quality teaching in accelerator physics were again in evidence in the years when Daniel was the head of the CERN Accelerator School (CAS), a role in which he s...

    2007-01-01

    It was with great sadness that we learned of the death in an accident of our friend and former colleague, Daniel Fromm, at the age of 58. Daniel arrived at CERN in 1968 to work on the alignment of the ISR magnets. After becoming a member of the personnel in 1975, he joined the R209 experiment in the 1980s, then the ALEPH experiment in 1994. He was a member of the PH-DT1 group from 2000 until his retirement in 2006. The name of Daniel Fromm is intimately linked to mass flowmeters. For over 15 years he managed the laboratory in Building 156 that was responsible for the calibration of flowmeters and technical support equipment for the gas racks used in the beams of the PS and SPS. The physicists from the LEP and fixed-target experiments placed blind trust in the accuracy and reliability of Daniel’s calibrations. They could be confident that a faulty flowmeter he repaired would be ready for use again in record time so that the detector could be immediately brought b...

    We were deeply saddened to hear of the death of our former colleague, Daniel Bois, at his home in Crozet on 27 March, in his 79th year. Daniel Bois, trained in precision mechanics, arrived at CERN in November 1954 and was assigned to the Central Workshop. His remarkable talent for precision measurements prompted his then boss to point him in the direction of the Survey Group, which was working on the construction of the PS at the time. He remained with this Group until he retired. His flair for measurements and his constant need to create and invent led him to fabricate novel tools for aligning the magnets of the PS or the ISR, even if this meant challenging the conventional methods of the day. One of his inventions was the "distinvar", a length-measuring tool that was widely used up until the construction of LEP. We are also indebted to Daniel for the use of stretched wires to align magnets, a technique that is still intensively ...

  14. Ipotesi di un calco paradigmatico slavo-romanzo: (l'imperativo-congiuntivo, uno studio fondato sul Glossario del dialetto del Torre di Jan Baudouin de Courtenay

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available Muovendo dal presupposto, teorizzato da Baudouin de Courtenay, secondo il quale il mutamento linguistico è costitutivo del linguaggio umano e pertanto la nozione di monolinguismo andrebbe superata, i dialetti sloveni di area friulana, esposti alla millenaria azione del romanzo, rappresentano un terreno ideale per gli studi sull'interferenza, in quanto rendono perspicui fenomeni da contatto altrimenti difficili da individuare. Il primo ad aver colto una tale opportunità fu lo stesso Baudouin, che visitò ripetutamente le vallate snodantisi lungo (l'attuale confine italo-sloveno, raccogliendovi materiali dialettologici solo in parte pubblicati. Uno dei complessi più notevoli rimasti inediti per oltre un secolo è costituito dal Glossario del dialetto del Torre, le cui schede risalgono agli anni 1873 e 1901. Esso registra un gran numero di prestiti e calchi romanzi, alcuni dei quali risultano del massimo interesse, perché documentano da un lato la forza incisiva di un sistema sull'altro in presenza di condizioni di natura strutturale e storico-culturale particolarmente favorevoli; dall'altro, la capacità di elaborazione originale del modello forestiero ad opera del sistema ricevente. Il contributo si concentra su un fenomeno di calco assai complesso compiuto sul friulano, che investe il sistema dell'imperativo, estraendone in maniera originale un paradigma di congiuntivo, ignoto alla grammatica slovena. Il mutamento viene seguito nelle sue varie fasi, a iniziare dalle motivazioni di ordine generale che ne stanno a monte, per passare a quelle specifiche di natura morfosintattica, connesse con l'interlingua sloveno-friulana.

    Full Text Available The Syriac Apocalypse of Daniel (Syr Apoc Dan, a Christian apocalypse from the seventh century of Common Era, is clearly tributary to the canonical book of Daniel (Dn. In its turn, Dn provided the figure of an eschatological opponent who was re-signified in Christianity: the Antichrist. The cosmic dimensions of the malevolent character of oppressive tyrant of Dn – his arrogance against the gods, the abomination of desolation, military conquests and persecutions of the saints, the change of the cosmic order, the time of the reign and death of the tyrant – are considered in this work compared with the Antichrist of the Syr Apoc Dan.

In particular, the situation in Switzerland, where mains-connected sources of energy such as electricity and gas play an important role in energy supply, is looked at in the light of market liberalisation. Various approaches to the liberalisation of gas and electricity systems are discussed and the costs of liberalised supply systems are compared with those of the present monopolistic situation. Also, energy reserves and the use of the gas distribution system in a future hydrogen-based energy supply scenario are looked at. Projects currently being worked on at the CEPE are reviewed

    2014-02-01

    Full Text Available Applying cognitive linguistics to the text of Daniel 1 is a useful exegetical aid for a better understanding of the narrative. Studying the author’s use of ‘spatial markers’ such as ‘Jerusalem’, ‘Babylon’, ‘temple’ and some other spatial features, makes it possible to reconstruct the narrative into a ‘cognitive spatial frameset’. In this particular exegetical frameset, Daniel 1 can be described as a narrated confrontation between Yahweh and the gods of Babylon. Within this conflict between deities, Daniel, the divine agent becomes a spatial embodiment of Yahweh’s power and authority to act inside a hostile, non-Israelite environment and at the same time undermines the authority of the Babylonian gods.

  17. Obituary: Daniel E. Harris (1934 - 2015)

    Science.gov (United States)

    Madrid, Juan P.; Massaro, Francesco; Cheung, Teddy

    Our friend and colleague, Daniel E. Harris, died on December 6th 2015. Dan was a passionate astronomer and world traveller. He led a rich and scientifically productive life until the end. Dan was the first person to receive a PhD in radio astronomy at Caltech where he was a student of John Bolton, one of the fathers of Radio Astronomy and the founder of the Owens Valley Radio Observatory that Dan used for his thesis and first publications. One of Dan's first projects was with Jim Roberts to measure improved positions and flux densities for radio sources in the newly released 3C catalog. During this study, Dan discovered the first flat spectrum radio sources, which he named CTA 21, CTA 26, and CTA 102 and which were later identified as quasars. His PhD thesis resulted in the then definitive study of the evolution of supernova remnants. Later Dan worked on radio galaxies and active galactic nuclei (AGN) first at radio and then at X-ray wavelengths with the Einstein, ROSAT, and Chandra Observatories where he pioneered the new field of relativistic X-ray jets and how they relate to radio galaxies and AGN. After graduating from Caltech in 1961, Dan wanted to see the world. Beginning in 1962, Dan lived in Bologna, Italy, where he worked with Professor Marcello Ceccarelli and the radio astronomy group and was active in the construction of the Northern Cross Radio Observatory ("la Croce"), the first Italian radio telescope. He left Bologna in the Spring of 1964 as his friends remember him to "divenir del mondo esperto e de li vizi umani e del valore"1, as he joined V. Radhakrishnan (Rad) and Dave Morris to sail in a 36-ft trimaran from England to Puerto Rico where he took a position at the Arecibo Observatory working with Marshall Cohen on interplanetary scintillations. After five years at the Arecibo Observatory, Dan went on to work at the Argentinian Institute of Radio Astronomy, Harvard University, the Dwingeloo Radio Observatory in the Netherlands, and at the Dominion

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kraus, John D., Jr.; Marhefka, Ronald J.

    2005-12-01

    John Daniel Kraus, 94, of Delaware, Ohio, director of the Ohio State University "Big Ear" Radio Observatory, physicist, inventor, and environmentalist died 18 July 2004 at his home in Delaware, Ohio. He was born on 28 June 1910 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He received a Bachelor of Science in 1930, a Master of Science in 1931, and a PhD in physics in 1933 (at 23 years of age), all from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. During the 1930s at Michigan, he was involved in physics projects, antenna consulting, and in atomic-particle-accelerator research using the University of Michigan's premier cyclotron. Throughout the late 1920s and the 1930s, John was an avid radio amateur with call sign W8JK. He was back on the air in the 1970s. In 2001 the amateur radio magazine CQ named him to the inaugural class of its Amateur Radio Hall of Fame. He developed many widely used innovative antennas. The "8JK closely spaced array" and the "corner reflector" were among his early designs. Edwin H. Armstrong wrote John in July 1941 indicating in part, "I have read with interest your article in the Proceedings of the Institute on the corner reflector...Please let me congratulate you on a very fine piece of work." Perhaps John's most famous invention, and a product of his intuitive reasoning process, is the helical antenna, widely used in space communications, on global positioning satellites, and for other applications. During World War II, John was in Washington, DC as a civilian scientist with the U.S. Navy responsible for "degaussing" the electromagnetic fields of steel ships to make them safe from magnetic mines. He also worked on radar countermeasures at Harvard University's Radio Research Laboratory. He received the U.S. Navy Meritorious Civilian Service Award for his war work. In 1946 he took a faculty position at Ohio State University, becoming professor in 1949, and retiring in 1980 as McDougal Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering and Astronomy. Even so, he never retired

"For seminal contributions that span psychology's breadth--from cognitive to social to personality to clinical--and that reach beyond its borders to philosophy and neuroscience. Daniel M. Wegner's studies on transactive memory, action identification, ironic processes, and apparent mental causation all bear his characteristic mark: a beautiful idea brought to life by an elegant experiment. He has spent his scientific career identifying new and important problems and then offering solutions that sparkle with originality and insight. He has seen doors where others saw walls, opened them to reveal new rooms, and illuminated their dark corners."

  10. Daniel Bovet and his role in the development of psychobiology.

    Oliverio, Alberto

    2008-01-01

    One hundred years since his birth, fifty years after his Nobel achievement, Daniel Bovet still emerges as one of the key figures of both pharmacology and psychobiology, the biological and evolutionary roots of behaviour. The life and scientific activities of Daniel Bovet (1907-1992) are closely linked to the 'golden years' of pharmacology, the exceptional development of this science from the end of the 1930s to the 1960s. Later on, from the 1960s to the end of his scientific career, Bovet entered a new field, psychobiology, through the study of the effects of drugs active on the nervous system and their effects on behaviour. This approach led him to explore different aspects of the biology of behaviour, namely the role of individual differences, the genetic determinants of behaviour and their implications on learning and memory. It is therefore evident that the range of his scientific activity has been very broad, a fact difficultly conceivable in years of extreme specialization.

    Full Text Available Daniel, Hananiah, Misael, and Azariah were young Jewish people who had been taken to Babylon in captivity. They truly obeyed God in their daily life and did not defile themselves with the king’s food and wine. God honored their decision so He gave them wisdom, that is intellectual ability (knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning and understanding visions and dreams of all kinds. Their response to the wisdom from God was having a good life style, submitting to God, and carrying burdens. To continue the wisdom from God, they lived in unity, depended on God and had God’s spirit in them. In doing their job, they spoke with wisdom and tact and worked honestly. In working with the king, they made a courageous decision not to worship the image of god and not to follow the king’s command. In the king’s palace, Daniel did not think for himself only, but had a burden to pray for Jerusalem, represent his nation before God, and fast for the future.

    Full Text Available Adopting the theories postulated by Classical Rhetoric and Argumentation Discourse, this paper comes up with a reflection about the identity built by Daniel Munduruku in his memories ‘Meu vô Apolinário: um mergulho no rio da (minha memória’ The indigenous writer assumes the world of classical rhetorical tradition and expose his ideas in order to change preconceived concepts about the visibility of indigenous people by non-indigenous brazilian society. Munduruku shows a new indigenous appearence resulting from the performance between previosly and shown ethos, working both: his ‘fame’ and a new person built in his book and captured by the reader. Adopting gender epidictic, the construction of the indigenous ethos is done in a apparently harmless way, lying hidden the purpose to recreate new values about the world’s indigenous peoples in Brazil.

    Full Text Available Daniele da Volterra is better known in Spain for painting the drapery that covers some of the nudes in Michelangelo’s The Last Judgment than for his own work, which defined him as his master’s most loyal successor. Nonetheless, Daniele’s influence on Spanish art through Gaspar Becerra, a disciple of his in Rome, determined to a large extent the development of sculpture in this country in the second half of the 16th century. This article makes known and discusses Daniele’s previously unpublished last will and testament, located in the Archivio di Stato di Roma among the volumes by the notary Thomassino, who attended to the inventory of his possessions. It also provides new details on Daniele’s estate and on his direct disciples Michele Alberti, Feliciano de San Vito, and Biagio Betti along with his indirect ones such as Jacopo Rocchetti.

    Daniele da Volterra es más conocido en España por pintar los paños que cubren algunos de los desnudos del Juicio final de Miguel Ángel, que por su obra, que le define como el más fiel heredero de su maestro. Sin embargo, su influencia en el arte español a través de Gaspar Becerra, discípulo suyo en Roma, condicionó el desarrollo de la escultura en buena parte de nuestro país en la segunda mitad del siglo XVI.

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available This article states that, with his narrative, the author of Daniel 6 creates the presence of Elohim outside Jerusalem and Israel, within non-Israelite environments. Applying a body-space frameset to the texts of Daniel 6 helps to read the text as a construction of concepts. With his narrative the author creates the presence of Elohim outside Jerusalem and Israel, within non-Israelite environments. Furthermore, a spatial frameset shows that the story of Daniel 6 can be read as a conclusion to a larger narrative that stretches from Daniel 1–6. In this narrative the author utilises spatial concepts such as the character of Daniel; the lion’s den; Jerusalem and King Darius, to establish the omnipresence of the God of Israel. In constructing this presence of-God reality the author conveys a message of hope and trust in the authority of the God of Israel. In this regard Daniel 6 is not just a story about the character Daniel being persecuted for his faith; rather it is a story about the God of Israel establishing his presence and his ability to act through and within space and time.

  4. Daniel Goodman’s empirical approach to Bayesian statistics

    Bayesian statistics, in contrast to classical statistics, uses probability to represent uncertainty about the state of knowledge. Bayesian statistics has often been associated with the idea that knowledge is subjective and that a probability distribution represents a personal degree of belief. Dr. Daniel Goodman considered this viewpoint problematic for issues of public policy. He sought to ground his Bayesian approach in data, and advocated the construction of a prior as an empirical histogram of “similar” cases. In this way, the posterior distribution that results from a Bayesian analysis combined comparable previous data with case-specific current data, using Bayes’ formula. Goodman championed such a data-based approach, but he acknowledged that it was difficult in practice. If based on a true representation of our knowledge and uncertainty, Goodman argued that risk assessment and decision-making could be an exact science, despite the uncertainties. In his view, Bayesian statistics is a critical component of this science because a Bayesian analysis produces the probabilities of future outcomes. Indeed, Goodman maintained that the Bayesian machinery, following the rules of conditional probability, offered the best legitimate inference from available data. We give an example of an informative prior in a recent study of Steller sea lion spatial use patterns in Alaska.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available Although he has won the Nobel Prize for Economy (for his works on the decision theory, Daniel Kahneman is, surprisingly, a psychologist. Thinking, Fast and Slow presents us ideas and theories regarding the way in which the mind works and how this thing affects us when making a decision. In his opinion, the human thinking is a dual process, duality presented from three different perspec-tives. First (as the title suggests it, there are highlighted the differences between the fast and the slow thinking. Then the distinction between econs (rational agents of the classical economic theory and of the importance of economic schools of Chicago and humans (real people, which are not irrational but to whom the rational model does not fit is argued. Finally, the author presents us the conflicts between the remembering self and the experiencing self in respect to the way in which these selves perceive the wellbeing.   The volume contains 38 chapters structured in five parts. At the end, there is a Conclusions section and there are attached two articles written by Kahneman together with his friend Amos Tversky which present the contributions that have been cited by the Nobel committee for justifying the award given in 2002 (Tversky died in 1996 and he could not be awarded the Nobel Prize, although he would have deserved it.

    The Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy, during a historic event in Spring 2016, graduated the first two students in the Pacific region to earn a PhD in pharmaceutical sciences at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo. The college offers PhD programs in these five disciplines: Cancer Biology, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutics, Pharmacognosy, and Pharmacology. One of the Pharmacognosy dissertations focused on plant-derived natural products with potential anti-inflammatory and cancer chemopreventive activities. Physalis peruviana (Pp) L. originated in tropical South America. It has become naturalized and is found readily on the Island of Hawai‘i. The edible fruits are commonly known as cape gooseberry or poha in Hawai‘i. In part of our study, three new withanolides, physaperuvin G (1), physaperuvins I–J (2–3), along with four known withanolides, namely, 4β-hydroxywithanolide E (4), withaperuvin C (5), and physalactone (6), coagulin (7) were isolated from the aerial parts of P. peruviana. In addition, two known compounds, phyperunolide F (8), and withanolide S (9), were isolated and identified from the poha berry fruits. The structures and absolute stereochemistry of new compounds from poha were elucidated by several spectroscopy methods: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and mass spectrometry analyses. All isolated poha compounds (aerial parts and fruits) were evaluated for their anti-inflammatory activity with lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-activated murine macrophage RAW 264.7 cells, and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α)-activated nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) with transfected human embryonic kidney cells 293. Most of the isolated natural compounds showed activity with these assays. Additional studies were performed with models of colon cancer. Specifically, 4β-hydroxywithanolide E (4HWE) inhibited the growth of colon cancer monolayer and spheroid cultures. The compound induced cell cycle arrest at low concentrations and

    2008-07-01

    Full Text Available Pentecostals regard the doctrine of the second coming of Christ as very important. All passages in the Bible deemed to be “prophetical” are interpreted in premillennialist terms. Bennie Kleynhans’ interpretation of the dream in Daniel 2 is used to demonstrate how an endeavour to find relevance through a contemporary interpretation of a Biblical passage, easily be- comes outdated. He was of the opinion that communism, the Council on Foreign Relations and the European Economic Community with its ten members would introduce the Antichrist as the leader of a one-world government, eventually leading to the second coming of Christ. Daniel 2 is read as “prophecy”, describing the global situation at the latter half of the twentieth century. This demonstrates that the differences in interpreting the dream in Daniel 2 reflect different ways of viewing and treating the Bible. A fundamentalist perspective sees the Bible as a blueprint of what God is going to do in future and how he is going to do this. The “future” – the “last days” just before the second coming of Christ – is inevitably linked to the present day.

    Full Text Available Children enjoy the tales of Daniel and his three friends, whether told in Sunday school, day school, by parents or grandparents. These tales are cast essentially in violent terms. In this article a specific version of the tales in a children’s Bible is analysed to show in what way violence serves as the thread that holds the tales together and to suggest that this might imply that violence is condoned, be it violence committed by God for the sake of his children or by his children for their own sakes. Through ideology, criticism and deconstruction it is shown how a socially engaged reading of the text necessitates narrators of the Daniel tales to criticise violence embedded within the Biblical text, especially when these tales are narrated to children.

    Full Text Available Daniel Moyano, escritor argentino nacido en Buenos Aires y muerto en Madrid en 1992, publicó poemas, cuentos y novelas que aún no han recibido la atención que merecen por parte de la crítica especializada. Además, fue músico profesional. Estas dos vocaciones se conjugan en una característica que destaca una gran parte de su narrativa: la confluencia entre música y literatura. Este artículo estudia la presencia de la música en un corpus de tres cuentos de Daniel Moyano, publicados entre 1974 y 1988. Se advierte en ellos una presencia cada vez más relevante de lo musical, tanto a nivel de la escritura como en los diversos sentidos que adquiere en las historias narradas.

    Daniell cell (i.e. Zn-Cu battery) is widely used in chemistry curricula to illustrate how batteries work, although it has been supplanted in the late 19th century by more modern battery designs because of Cu2+-crossover-induced self-discharge and un-rechargeable characteristic. Herein, it is re-built by using a ceramic Li-ion exchange film to separate Cu and Zn electrodes for preventing Cu2+-crossover between two electrodes. The re-built Zn-Cu battery can be cycled for 150 times without capacity attenuation and self-discharge, and displays a theoretical energy density of 68.3 Wh kg-1. It is more important that both electrodes of the battery are renewable, reusable, low toxicity and environmentally friendly. Owing to these advantages mentioned above, the re-built Daniell cell can be considered as a promising and green stationary power source for large-scale energy storage.

  2. Not so special after all? Daniels and the social determinants of health.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Wilson, J

    2009-01-01

    Just health: meeting health needs fairly is an ambitious book, in which Norman Daniels attempts to bring together in a single framework all his work on health and justice from the past 25 years. One major aim is to reconcile his earlier work on the special moral importance of healthcare with his later work on the social determinants of health. In his earlier work, Daniels argued that healthcare is of special moral importance because it protects opportunity. In this later work, Daniels argues that the social determinants of health (which in fact tend to have a larger effect on health outcomes than healthcare does) should also be considered special. This paper argues that it is a mistake to base a theory of justice for health on the claim that health (or the social determinants of health) are "special", for three reasons. First, once we realise that health is to a large part socially determined by features such as distribution of income, which are also of independent importance for justice, we cannot talk about a theory of justice for health in isolation from an overall theory of justice. Second, when we are trying to work out the place of health in a general theory of justice, being told that health (or the social determinants of health) is special is unhelpful. The relevant starting point should rather be whether health matters in a fundamental way for justice, or whether it matters merely for the effects it has on those goods which are of fundamental importance for justice. Third, treating the social determinants of health as special would in fact be counterproductive in terms of the broad approach to justice Daniels favours.

    The Schrödinger equation for a particle moving in a square well potential with BenDaniel-Duke boundary conditions is solved. Using algebraic approximations for trigonometric functions, the transcendental equations of the bound states energy are transformed into tractable, algebraic equations. For the ground state and the first excited state, they are cubic equations; we obtain simple formulas for their physically interesting roots. The case of higher excited states is also analysed. Our results have direct applications in the physics of type I and type II semiconductor heterostructures.

    Full Text Available In this article, aspects of narrative critique, genre, editorial critique, the body and space are uniquely combined into a body-space framework. This spatial framework is used to examine the second episode of ‘Bel and the Dragon’, called ‘Daniel Dragonslayer’. It is postulated that the second episode of ‘Bel and the Dragon’ should be read in a reciprocal relationship with not only ‘Bel and the Dragon’, but also the larger Book of Daniel. Firstly, such an analysis indicates that the smaller episode is part of a larger clash of deities. Secondly, it shows that the editor /author utilises the episode to create a new cosmology. In this new cosmology, the Jewish deity is an almighty one, whilst other deities are seen as false and not real living gods. In his own way, the editor or author contributes to the way in which Jews regarded their God within the reality of the diaspora. Daniel Dragonslayer − Bel en die draak, Verse 23−27 (VAN/Die. In hierdie artikel word aspekte van narratiewe-kritiek, genre, redaksie-kritiek, die liggaam en ruimte op ’n unieke wyse gekombineer om ’n beliggaamde ruimteraamwerk te vorm. Hierdie beliggaamde ruimteraamwerk word gebruik om die tweede episode van ‘Bel en die Draak’, naamlik ‘Daniël, die Draakjagter’, te analiseer. Die artikel stel voor dat hierdie tweede episode van ‘Bel en die Draak’ in ’n resiproke verhouding met ‘Bel en die Draak’, sowel as met die boek Daniël gelees moet word. Indien die teks op hierdie voorgestelde wyse ontleed word, kom verskeie punte na vore. Eerstens word aangedui dat die kleiner episode deel van ’n groter gode-oorlog vorm. Tweedens, die skrywer/redakteur gebruik die kleiner episode as deel van ’n proses om ’n nuwe kosmologie te skep. Volgens hierdie nuwe kosmologie is die Joodse God ’n almagtige God, terwyl ander gode vals en nie ware lewende gode is nie. Op sy eie manier lewer die skrywer/redakteur ’n bydrae tot die

    2016-04-01

    Full Text Available The prose poem has traditionally been considered above all a lyrical genre. Never-theless, there are short fictions showing the main features of the prose poem, such as brevity, intensity, autonomy, importance of connotation, visionary character and, above all, the dominance of description. The fic-tional prose poem gives shape to an imagi-nary world which is poetically described, rather than narrated. The fictional character of this kind of prose poem is especially clear when what is described is a future reality, as it is the case in Stéphane Mallarmé’s «Le Phénomène futur» and in later series of prose poems which create prospective uni-verses. Among them, the series collected by Daniel Walther in 2010 under the title of Les Chasseurs du temps stands out for its mysterious force, its fictional coherence and the beauty of its images.

    This paper addresses the influence of deteriorating brittle Daniels system characteristics on the value of structural health monitoring (SHM). The value of SHM is quantified as the difference between the life cycle benefits with and without SHM. A value of SHM analysis is performed within...... the framework of the Bayesian pre-posterior decision theory and requires (1) structur al performance modelling and prediction, (2) structural integrity management models, (3) the (pre-posterior) modelling of SHM and (4) the coupling of SHM and the structural performance models. The pre-posterior decision...... theoretical framework facilitates that the value of SHM can be quantified before the SHM system is quantified and before data are acquired. The results of this study support decisions to select structural systems for which the SHM strategy load monitoring is optimal....

    Full Text Available This work is the result of some concerns and reflections on the possible relations that History can hold with Literature, once for decades debates have been developed in favor of the delimitation of boundaries between historiographical discourse and literary works, and also of the establishment of Literature as a source for the development of historical researches. We intend to analyse here the Testimonial Literature genre through the works Passagem para o Próximo Sonho (1982, by Herbert Daniel, and Em Busca do Tesouro (1982, by Alex Polari, considering them essential to emphasize the new themes and approaches gaining ground with the growing number of works devoted to study the period in which the urban guerrilla happened, during the Brazilian military dictatorship. Therefore this study analyses historical, social, political and cultural representations built by the witness-narrators about the Brazilian “lefts” and the guerrilla background formed after 1968 during the Brazilian military regime.

    This study aimed at characterizing the sensory quality of Italian PDO dry-cured Parma, San Daniele and Toscano hams, applying a multi-disciplinary approach. Ham sensory profile as well as physico-chemical, aromatic, morphological and textural characteristics was investigated. There was a great difference between Toscano ham and Parma and San Daniele hams, which were more similar even though differentiated. Toscano ham showed higher scores for pork-meat odor, saltiness, dryness, fibrousness and hardness; accordingly, this ham was described by a high NaCl content and by high values of instrumental hardness, cohesiveness, gumminess and chewiness. Parma ham was characterized by a cured flavor, whereas San Daniele ham showed a wider fatty area and higher pH values. Parma and San Daniele hams were also described by higher values of sweetness, RGB color values and water activity. Sensory characteristics evaluated by trained assessors were correlated to instrumental measures, indicating that instrumental devices can be effectively applied for dry-cured ham characterization. © 2013.

    Full Text Available The article describes a forgotten work of Daniel Naborowski – “De temperamentis disputatio medica” (1593. Naborowski was a poet who lived at the turn of the 17th century and the work considered here is the result of his medical studies in Switzerland. The article addresses the poet’s scholarly interests, but first and foremost, it focuses on the subject of the research – the theory of temperaments. With ancient lineage and extremely popular in the sixteenth century, the theory was most frequently presented in the contexts of physiognomy, astrology and the lesions that were conditioned by the theory, yet in Naborowski’s work, it gained a new, solely theoretical perspec-tive. It was also concerned with the meticulous consideration of the systematics of temperaments (e.g. their differentiation – one was moderate and eight were merged, as well as their detailed division. The style of these considerations is characteristic for medical works of that period, and they constitute an interesting example of how practical issues in 16th and 17th century medicine were systematized. Furthermore, Naborowski’s considerations are a vivid example of permeable nature of disciplines – philosophy and medicine, and medicine with the broadly understood field of the humanities.

    2014-01-01

    Telegraphy originated in the 1830s and 40 s and flourished in the following decades but with a patchwork of electrical standards. Electromotive force was for the most part measured in units of the predominant Daniell cell, but each telegraphy company had their own resistance standard. In 1862, the British Association for the Advancement of Science formed a committee to address this situation. By 1873, they had given definition to the electromagnetic system of units (emu) and defined the practical units of the ohm as 109 emu units of resistance and the volt as 108 emu units of electromotive force. These recommendations were ratified and expanded upon in a series of international congresses held between 1881 and 1904. A proposal by Giovanni Giorgi in 1901 took advantage of a coincidence between the conversion of the units of energy in the emu system (the erg) and in the practical system (the Joule). As it was, the same conversion factor existed between the cgs based emu system and a theretofore undefined MKS system. By introducing another unit X (where X could be any of the practical electrical units), Giorgi demonstrated that a self-consistent MKSX system was tenable without the need for multiplying factors. Ultimately, the ampere was selected as the fourth unit. It took nearly 60 years, but in 1960, Giorgi's proposal was incorporated as the core of the newly inaugurated International System of Units (SI). This article surveys the physics, physicists, and events that contributed to those developments.

    Full Text Available The article discusses three Estonian translations of Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe into Estonian with the focus on the completeness of the translated texts and the characterisation given to these in paratextual information. While there are several translations and versions of the tex t available in E stonian that have either used a mediating language or do not proceed directly from Defoe’s novel, three editions explicitly list Defoe’s English-language Robinson Crusoe as their source text. These are Rudolf Sirge’s translation from 1950 and two editions translated by Valter Rummel that appeared in 1984 (reprinted in 2001 and 2007, respectively. The article sets out to discover the main differences between the three editions and the possible reasons that may have triggered their publication in Estonia at those particular times. In order to approach the issues, a general framework derived from descriptive translation studies is employed with an emphasis on Gideon Toury’s chrestomatic treatment of translation norms. Thus an attempt is made to detect the preliminary translational norms regarding translation policy, particularly the choice of texts to be translated, as well as the matricial norms that concern the fullness of the translated text and are part of operational norms manifested in the translator’s decisions which, in two of the cases at hand, may also have been decisions made by the editor or the censor. Rudolf Sirge’s translation appeared at a time when Estonia had fairly recently been incorporated into the Soviet Union and there was a lack of children’s literature ideologically appreciated by the regime. This may account for the packaging of the book as a work with a strong didactic bent, while its primary audience was taken to be children and young adults for whom the protagonist served as an example of a hard-working and tenacious hero to be emulated by young Soviets.

  19. [Work, momentum and fatigue in the work of Daniel Bernoulli: toward the optimization of biological fact].

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fonteneau, Yannick; Viard, Jérôme

    The concept of mechanical work is inherited from the concepts of potentia absoluta and men's work, both implemented in the section IX of Daniel Bernoulli's Hydrodynamica in 1738. Nonetheless, Bernoulli did not confuse these two entities: he defined a link from gender to species between the former, which is general, and the latter, which is organic. In addition, Bernoulli clearly distinguished between vis viva and potentia absoluta (or work). Their reciprocal conversions are rarely mentioned explicitly in this book, except once, in the section X of his work, from vis viva to work, and subordinated to the mediation of a machine, in a driving forces substitution problem. His attitude evolved significantly in a text in 1753, in which work and vis viva were unambiguously connected, while the concept of potentia absoluta was reduced to that of human work, and the expression itself was abandoned. It was then accepted that work can be converted into vis viva, but the opposite is true in only one case, the intra-organic one. It is the concept of fatigue, seen as an expenditure of animal spirits themselves conceived of as little tensed springs releasing vis viva, that allowed the conversion, never quantified and listed simply as a model, from vis viva to work. Thus, work may have ultimately appeared as a transitional state between two kinds of vis viva, of which the first is non-quantifiable. At the same time, the natural elements were discredited from any hint of profitable production. Only men and animals were able to work in the strict sense of the word. Nature, left to itself, does not work, according to Bernoulli. In spite of his wish to bring together rational mechanics and practical mechanics, one perceived in the work of Bernoulli the subsistence of a rarely crossed disjunction between practical and theoretical fields.

    Full Text Available Background: We have previously reported multiple health benefits in individuals following the Christian-based fasting protocol known as the Daniel Fast (DF. However, our prior work has involved only short-term (21-day assessments. For dietary modification to have a profound impact on health, compliance to the dietary plan must be established for the long-term. Materials and Methods We determined the 6-month compliance to a traditional (vegan DF (n=12, as well as a modified DF (n=9; allowing for the inclusion of small amounts of meat and milk in healthy individuals. Participants completed diet records during the study period and also rated their overall compliance to the assigned dietary plan. Results Compliance to both dietary plans proved to be satisfactory (approximately 80% in the 6th month; 85% in the 3rd month and 95% during the 3rd week. It is noteworthy that it did not show any major differences between groups. Body weight, from baseline toward month 6, saw a decline in participants assigned to both the traditional DF (79.6±5.3 to 75.5±5.5 kg and the modified DF (80.4±8.0 to 74.3±6.5 kg. Conclusion These data indicated that both the traditional and modified DF, which involve ad libitum (Latin for “at liberty” feeding, are realistic for individuals to comply with over a period of several months. Such compliance is associated with a weight loss of approximately 5-8% of the body mass and considering the multi-faceted health benefits of this particular dietary approach, it may result in worthy improvements in overall health. Additional studies of the long-term health implications of this fasting method are also required.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Dietary modification via both caloric and nutrient restriction is associated with multiple health benefits, some of which are related to an improvement in antioxidant status and a decrease in the production of reactive oxygen species. The Daniel Fast is based on the Biblical book of Daniel, is commonly partaken for 21 days, and involves food intake in accordance with a stringent vegan diet. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effect of a 21 day Daniel Fast on biomarkers of antioxidant status and oxidative stress. Methods 43 subjects (13 men; 30 women; 35 ± 1 yrs; range: 20-62 yrs completed a 21 day Daniel Fast following the guidelines provided by investigators. Subjects reported to the lab in a 12 hour post-absorptive state both pre fast (day 1 and post fast (day 22. At each visit, blood was collected for determination of malondialdehyde (MDA, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2, nitrate/nitrite (NOx, Trolox Equivalent Antioxidant Capacity (TEAC, and Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC. Subjects recorded dietary intake during the 7 day period immediately prior to the fast and during the final 7 days of the fast. Results A decrease was noted in MDA (0.66 ± 0.0.03 vs. 0.56 ± 0.02 μmol L-1; p = 0.004, while H2O2 demonstrated a trend for lowering (4.42 ± 0.32 vs. 3.78 ± 0.21 μmol L-1; p = 0.074. Both NOx (18.79 ± 1.92 vs. 26.97 ± 2.40 μmol L-1; p = 0.003 and TEAC (0.47 ± 0.01 vs. 0.51 ± 0.01 mmol L-1; p = 0.001 increased from pre to post fast, while ORAC was unchanged (5243 ± 103 vs. 5249 ± 183 μmol L-1 TE; p = 0.974. As expected, multiple differences in dietary intake were noted (p Conclusion Modification of dietary intake in accordance with the Daniel Fast is associated with an improvement in selected biomarkers of antioxidant status and oxidative stress, including metabolites of nitric oxide (i.e., NOx.

    Natural phenomena hazards (NPH) are unexpected acts of nature that pose a threat or danger to workers, the public, or the environment. Earthquakes, extreme winds (hurricane and tornado), snow, flooding, volcanic ashfall, and lightning strikes are examples of NPH that could occur at the Hanford Site. U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) policy requires facilities to be designed, constructed, and operated in a manner that protects workers, the public, and the environment from hazards caused by natural phenomena. DOE Order 5480.28, Natural Phenomena Hazards Mitigation, includes rigorous new natural phenomena criteria for the design of new DOE facilities, as well as for the evaluation and, if necessary, upgrade of existing DOE facilities. The Order was transmitted to Westinghouse Hanford Company in 1993 for compliance and is also identified in the Project Hanford Management Contract, Section J, Appendix C. Criteria and requirements of DOE Order 5480.28 are included in five standards, the last of which, DOE-STD-1023, was released in fiscal year 1996. Because the Order was released before all of its required standards were released, enforcement of the Order was waived pending release of the last standard and determination of an in-force date by DOE Richland Operations Office (DOE-RL). Agreement also was reached between the Management and Operations Contractor and DOE-RL that the Order would become enforceable for new structures, systems, and components (SSCS) 60 days following issue of a new order-based design criteria in HNF-PRO-97, Engineering Design and Evaluation. The order also requires that commitments addressing existing SSCs be included in an implementation plan that is to be issued 1 year following the release of the last standard. Subsequently, WHC-SP-1175, Westinghouse Hanford Company Implementation Plan for DOE Order 5480.28, Natural Phenomena Hazards Mitigation, Rev. 0, was issued in November 1996, and this document, HNF-SP-1175, Fluor Daniel Hanford

    The Daniel-Johnson dam is located 800 km northeast of Montreal, PQ, and is 1314 m in length and 214 m high. Just after completion of dam construction different types of cracks started to appear on the upstream and downstream faces. During and after the construction of the dam, numerous cracks and joints were grouted in order to reduce water infiltration. In some cases, as a result of high injection pressures and inaccurate methods, the injections provoked the propagation of the existing cracks or the initiation of new ones. Because of this situation and to determine the contribution of injection to dam safety, in 1985, Hydro-Quebec applied a moratorium on all future injection work on the dam. Research work was initiated in 1986 in the areas of grouting materials, methods, equipment and behavioral analysis to establish a safe method for the injection of the cracks. A committee was formed in 1993 with members from various groups, in order to: carry out extensive behavioral analysis of the Arch 5-6 dam, carry out an investigation program in order to determine the cause of the increase of the water infiltration, undertake a structural analysis program in order to evaluate the impact of an injection on the safety of the dam, and identify the proper method and injection products to use. In 1997, as a result of the progress of the structural analysis studies and the injection research project, a decision was made to proceed with the injection of the dam. A description is included of the results of the investigation, recommendations and results of the injection research project, as well as some details of the grouting campaign carried out in January 1999. On the whole, a better knowledge was acquired of the structure, of the plunging cracks and the behaviour of the dam during the injection. In the field of injection methods, materials and equipment, research work was invaluable when it came to the injection of micro-fine cracks in concrete dams. 5 refs., 8 figs

  4. Optimal piston motion for maximum net output work of Daniel cam engines with low heat rejection

    Highlights: • The piston motion of low heat rejection compression ignition engines is optimized. • A realistic model taking into account the cooling system is developed. • The optimized cam is smaller for cylinders without thermal insulation. • The optimized cam size depends on ignition moment and cooling process intensity. - Abstract: Compression ignition engines based on classical tapper-crank systems cannot provide optimal piston motion. Cam engines are more appropriate for this purpose. In this paper the piston motion of a Daniel cam engine is optimized. Piston acceleration is taken as a control. The objective is to maximize the net output work during the compression and power strokes. A major research effort has been allocated in the last two decades for the development of low heat rejection engines. A thermally insulated cylinder is considered and a realistic model taking into account the cooling system is developed. The sinusoidal approximation of piston motion in the classical tapper-crank system overestimates the engine efficiency. The exact description of the piston motion in tapper-crank system is used here as a reference. The radiation process has negligible effects during the optimization. The approach with no constraint on piston acceleration is a reasonable approximation. The net output work is much larger (by 12–13%) for the optimized system than for the classical tapper-crank system, for similar thickness of cylinder walls and thermal insulation. Low heat rejection measures are not of significant importance for optimized cam engines. The optimized cam is smaller for a cylinder without thermal insulation than for an insulated cylinder (by up to 8%, depending on the local polar radius). The auto-ignition moment is not a parameter of significant importance for optimized cam engines. However, for given cylinder wall and insulation materials there is an optimum auto-ignition moment which maximizes the net output work. The optimum auto

    Full Text Available This article explores the characteristics adopted by the discourse of the migrant subject in the story "Ausencia" (Absence by the Peruvian writer Daniel Alarcón. Since the verification of a nomadic subject, it examines the re- articulation of the notions of territory, center / periphery and the confrontation with the "other." As a result of the analysis of these issues, we conclude that this narrative by Alarcón offers no relief to the subject from a dialectical synthesis of his identity; on the contrary, it leaves him suspended in an unfinished and amazed identification process.

    Full Text Available Tal vez la idea más controvertida de la filosofía de Daniel C. Dennett sea ésta: los seres humanos no son más que mecanismos dotados de intencionalidad derivada configurada por la evolución de las especies. Esto ha sido considerado por algunos como una afrenta porque relega al humano al estatus de simple artefacto: las acciones del ser humano no responden a sus propios intereses sino que se ven programados por «agentes internos especializados para recibir la información disponible en la periferia del cuerpo» que constituyen.…

  12. Favorable cardio-metabolic outcomes following high carbohydrate intake in accordance with the Daniel Fast: A review of available findings

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Richard Bloomer

    2017-03-01

    Full Text Available The Daniel Fast is a biblically inspired dietary program rich in carbohydrate, most closely resembling a vegan diet but with additional restrictions, including the elimination of processed foods, white flour products, preservatives, additives, sweeteners, caffeine, and alcohol. While no specific requirements are placed on the ingestion of specific percentages of macronutrients, the mean daily carbohydrate intake is by default approximately 60%, while protein and fat intake are 15% and 25%, respectively. Despite a relatively high carbohydrate intake, multiple favorable cardio-metabolic effects are noted when following the plan, in as few as three weeks. This includes improvements in HOMA-IR, which may be at least in part due to the lower glycemic load and high dietary fiber content of the foods consumed. Other notable changes include reductions in systemic inflammation, total and LDL-cholesterol, oxidative stress, blood pressure, and body weight/body fat. Short and moderate-term compliance to the program is excellent-better than most dietary programs, perhaps due to the ad libitum nature of this plan. This paper presents an overview of the Daniel Fast, a carbohydrate-rich dietary program, including relevant findings from both human and animal investigations using this dietary model.

  15. Warm Homes, Greener Living: Reducing Energy Poverty in Daniel McIntyre and St. Matthews through Energy Retrofits

    Science.gov (United States)

    Schulz, Kari

    This research examines energy poverty in the Daniel McIntyre and St. Matthews (DMSM) neighbourhoods in the city of Winnipeg. Energy poverty, defined as households spending more than 6% of their income on energy expenditures, affects as many as 50% of households in DMSM. Energy poverty can be alleviated through energy retrofits for dwellings such as weather stripping; increasing insulation in exterior walls, the attic and basement; and installing a high-efficiency furnace. The recommendations include: establishing consistent housing and energy efficiency policies; increasing the flexibility of utility on-bill financing; levying the necessary capital for energy retrofits through municipal financing mechanisms; increasing the knowledge and capacity of local residents; increasing the knowledge and capacity of local contractors for sustainable design and construction; creating a provincial strategy to increase the energy efficiency of social housing; developing low-income energy efficiency programs for rental properties; and increasing access to renewable energy sources.

    Full Text Available This paper will focus on some specific aspects of Arnaut Daniel’s “D’autra guiza e d’autra razo” which, despite its success in its day and age (some verses were reused by Petrarch in the opening sonnet of the “RVF”, has received little critical attention in modern times. In particular, I will examine the incipit (whose alterity with respect to the rest of the Occitan lyric tradition points to an explicit declaration of intent on the part of the author, the lack of a tornada and, finally, the possibility that Arnaut Daniel was influenced by the section in the “Rhetorica ad Herennium” devoted to mnemonic technique. Moreover, the hypothesis that material concerning the art of memory has been used here helps to explain some particularly problematic textual loci, such as ll. 5-7 and 34.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN El origen de esta publicación es la tesis doctoral dirigida por los profesores José Morales y Carmen Espegel y defendida en la Escuela de Arquitectura de Madrid en mayo de 2009. Su título, El autor y el intérprete, nos da pistas sobre un nuevo y sugerente argumento bien distinto del libro precedente: la relación entre el autor del proyecto, Le Corbusier, y su intérprete, Amancio Williams, así como la compleja personalidad del Dr. Curutchet y su intervención durante todo este proceso.Con estos personajes Daniel Merro reconstruye el problema hermenéutico de la relación entre autor e intérprete, en una traslación a la arquitectura del trabajo que Paul Ricoeur realiza en Tiempo y Narración y La Metáfora viva en relación con La Poética de Aristóteles. Un sólido conocimiento y una hábil transcripción de sus ideas filosóficas han permitido realizar esta empresa con suficientes garantías y solvencia sobrada. Así, Daniel ha sabido recomponer las vicisitudes que mediaron entre la gestación del proyecto, la presencia del cliente y la recepción por parte del intérprete, Amancio Williams, y las alteraciones que, además, se produjeron con la entrada en escena de un postrero personaje, Simón Ungar, que dirigió las obras desde octubre de 1951.

Author conducted a literary and textual analysis of one of the largest polemical writings of Metropolitan Daniel of Moscow — «The word of the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ.» This work was part of the composition «Sobornik slov» of Metropolitan Daniel, however, was never published and attracted the attention of researchers. At the same time it is the only writing in ancient russian literacy, where polemics with «netlennomnimaya» heresy, in which during the council in 1531, Daniel has accused the prince-monk Vassian (Patrikeev. The author established the county direct textual relationship «Sudnoe delo» of Vassian from «the Incarnation of the Word.» In addition, based on the study of ancient lists of «Words» author identifi ed the major literary devices and methods of Josephite polemicists school in the beginning of XVI century. «The word of the Incarnation» and many other works of Metropolitan Daniel examined in the paper as complex literary works, where identifies several levels of meaning. Analysis of a compilation of the «Word» has allowed the author to identify the strict sequence of citing biblical and patristic texts, and to identify the logic of argument advocated by Metropolitan Daniel. In this regard, the author attempts to refute the preconceived idea that the scribes Josephite schools were compilers, and destitute of original art. The author came to conclusion that existing in the national historiography technique of studying polemical writings of Russian medieval writers is in need of major changes.

    Daniel Fortuno, a counselor with AIDS Benefits Counselors (ABC), summarizes key insurance and benefits information for persons living with AIDS (PWAs), particularly those who reside in California. Fortuno explains the managed care concept and basic health insurance terms, such as pre-existing conditions, health maintenance organizations (HMOs), preferred provider organizations (PPOs), contestability, and the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA). Fortuno explains a California law that became effective in July 1993 that greatly restricts the ability of health insurance companies to refuse insurance due to preexisting conditions to small groups of persons. This law, AB 1672, makes health insurance available to the sick with little overall rises in prices. Federal insurance laws and regulations that impact PWAs and HIV-positive individuals are outlined. In the interview, Fortuno also discusses Medicaid/Medi-Cal (California's Medicaid), Social Security programs, State disability, and the AIDS Drug Assistance Program. Fortuno offers suggestions for obtaining good private insurance and evaluates the pros and cons of HMOs, PPOs, and indemnity insurance.

  5. On being a discontinuous person: Ontological insecurity, the wounded storyteller and time in Daniel Keyes’s Flowers for Algernon

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Tony Ullyatt

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available This article explores ontological security and insecurity in Daniel Keyes’s novel, Flowers for Algernon. It opens with a very brief overview of the 1960s counter-culture to contextualise not only Keyes’s novel but also Laing’s theories of ontological (insecurity. After a discussion of Laing’s concept of ontological security and insecurity, the focus shifts to Arthur W. Frank’s notions of the wounded storyteller and how Charlie Gordon’s entry into the medical world constitutes a colonisation of the body that brings with it a deepening sense of ontological insecurity. In entering the world of medical research, Charlie becomes the wounded storyteller, offering a first-person account of his experiences during the experiment and its aftermath. As the initial success of the surgery deteriorates steadily into failure, with the protagonist’s intelligence returning steadily to its pre-operation level, the question of time and how he can make the best use of it to record the experiment becomes paramount. The final section of the article centres on the growing link between the surgery’s failure and how it increases the protagonist’s ontological insecurity. He uses the diminishing amount of time available to him in search of understanding the fuller implications of the experiment. Eventually, he reverts to his initial rudimentary ontological security when he finds himself with the same intellectual level, as prior to the experiment.

    Full Text Available El experimento de Daniel Alcides Carrión marcó un hito en la historia de la medicina peruana. Alrededor de él ha existido mucha controversia. Quizás, el principal tema de debate sea la causa de su muerte. En la controversia, ha pasado desapercibido un hecho objetivo ocurrido en las últimas horas del experimento: la administración de inyecciones endovenosas de ácido fénico. Esta fue una terapia propuesta en Perú en aquella época como tratamiento del carbunco. Los médicos de la junta médica, en la agonía de Carrión, probablemente no administraron la transfusión sanguínea a Carrión, para experimentar con este tratamiento. La junta médica pensaba quizás repetir con la bartonelosis el éxito descrito que tuvieron las inyecciones de ácido fénico con el carbunco. Desconocían la actualmente demostrada toxicidad de esta sustancia. Probablemente, el evento precipitante de la muerte de Carrión fue una intoxicación por ácido fénico en un paciente con bartonelosis en fase anémica.

    2000-01-01

    This paper reviews the book "A Brief, Liberal, Catholic Defense of Abortion", by Daniel A. Dombrowski and Robert Deltete. In this book, the authors argue that the Catholic tradition on abortion is very different from the present teaching of the Catholic Church. The issue of abortion is explored in the book through two different philosophies and two major Catholic theologians. The two philosophies are the perversity of sex (abortion distorts sex) and the ontological (the fetus as a person) philosophies. Saint Augustine primarily identified with the perversity of sex and viewed early and late stages of abortion as evil, because it destroys the conceptus, which is the only justification for sex and because human life is present--after sensation and quickening occur. On the other hand, Saint Thomas Aquinas with the ontological approach was less interested in abortion, rather developed hylomorphism. He stated that there is no human life in the womb until the 5th or 6th month, but rather a cluster of cells; thus God cannot infuse a soul into a small cluster of cells since body and soul belong together. The authors believe that this book is a model of reasoned discourse about abortion issues and is proves to be beneficial to a Catholic as well as any thoughtful person.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Dietary modification via caloric restriction is associated with multiple effects related to improved metabolic and cardiovascular health. However, a mandated reduction in kilocalories is not well-tolerated by many individuals, limiting the long-term application of such a plan. The Daniel Fast is a widely utilized fast based on the Biblical book of Daniel. It involves a 21 day ad libitum food intake period, devoid of animal products and preservatives, and inclusive of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds. The purpose of the present study was to determine the efficacy of the Daniel Fast to improve markers of metabolic and cardiovascular disease risk. Methods 43 subjects (13 men; 30 women; 35 ± 1 yrs; range: 20-62 yrs completed a 21 day period of modified food intake in accordance with detailed guidelines provided by investigators. All subjects purchased and prepared their own food. Following initial screening, subjects were given one week to prepare for the fast, after which time they reported to the lab for their pre-intervention assessment (day 1. After the 21 day fast, subjects reported to the lab for their post-intervention assessment (day 22. For both visits, subjects reported in a 12 hr fasted state, performing no strenuous physical activity during the preceding 24-48 hrs. At each visit, mental and physical health (SF-12 form, resting heart rate and blood pressure, and anthropometric variables were measured. Blood was collected for determination of complete blood count, metabolic panel, lipid panel, insulin, HOMA-IR, and C-reactive protein (CRP. Subjects' self-reported compliance, mood, and satiety in relation to the fast were also recorded. Diet records were maintained by all subjects during the 7 day period immediately prior to the fast (usual intake and during the final 7 days of the fast. Results Subjects' compliance to the fast was 98.7 ± 0.2% (mean ± SEM. Using a 10 point scale, subjects

  19. Vibration measurements of the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope mount, Coudé rotator, and enclosure assemblies

    McBride, William R.; McBride, Daniel R.

    2016-08-01

    The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) will be the largest solar telescope in the world, with a 4-meter off-axis primary mirror and 16 meter rotating Coudé laboratory within the telescope pier. The off-axis design requires a mount similar to an 8-meter on-axis telescope. Both the telescope mount and the Coudé laboratory utilize a roller bearing technology in place of the more commonly used hydrostatic bearings. The telescope enclosure utilizes a crawler mechanism for the altitude axis. As these mechanisms have not previously been used in a telescope, understanding the vibration characteristics and the potential impact on the telescope image is important. This paper presents the methodology used to perform jitter measurements of the enclosure and the mount bearings and servo system in a high-noise environment utilizing seismic accelerometers and high dynamic-range data acquisition equipment, along with digital signal processing (DSP) techniques. Data acquisition and signal processing were implemented in MATLAB. In the factory acceptance testing of the telescope mount, multiple accelerometers were strategically located to capture the six axes-of-motion of the primary and secondary mirror dummies. The optical sensitivity analysis was used to map these mirror mount displacements and rotations into units of image motion on the focal plane. Similarly, tests were done with the Coudé rotator, treating the entire rotating instrument lab as a rigid body. Testing was performed by recording accelerometer data while the telescope control system performed tracking operations typical of various observing scenarios. The analysis of the accelerometer data utilized noise-averaging fast Fourier transform (FFT) routines, spectrograms, and periodograms. To achieve adequate dynamic range at frequencies as low as 3Hz, the use of special filters and advanced windowing functions were necessary. Numerous identical automated tests were compared to identify and select the data sets

    Full Text Available No hace mucho tiempo pudimos ver en la pantalla la película El hombre de al lado (Argentina, 2009 filmada en la Casa del Doctor Pedro Curutchet en Buenos Aires. También era su principal protagonista, pues el argumento gira alrededor de su inmarcesible presencia. La cámara de Mariano Cohn y Gastón Duprat nos muestran una sugestiva narración de la promenade architectural, sus atractivos espacios interiores, los juegos de luces y sombras otorgados por su brise-soleil y, también, su fragilidad ante las actuaciones poco respetuosas. Algunas imágenes nos recuerdan las tomas que Pierre Chenal hizo en Architecture d’Aujourd’hui (1930 con la colaboración del propio Le Corbusier, en esa escenificación de la promenade, entonces, por la villa Savoye. A este respecto Tim Benton insistía en la importancia del significado asociado a este deambular. La villa Stein mostraba diversas clases de naturaleza, en la villa Savoye el dominio de la arquitectura contra un medio antagonista, la naturaleza, que se hace presente desde el hueco con que finaliza el recorrido por la rampa. En la casa Curutchet nos encontramos un árbol ante el que se producen todos los desplazamientos: es una porción de naturaleza encerrada en un patio. Es casi una homotecia en relación con el parque ante el que se sitúa la casa y la metrópolis de Buenos Aires. Quizás haya también una reflexión entre el habitar y el trabajar en la gran ciudad, tan presente en el pensamiento de Le Corbusier. Estos son interpretaciones que no constituyen verdad alguna, sino asociaciones de ideas que no tienen más validez que retazos de memoria y que, en modo alguno, tratan de suplantar la realidad que se encuentra en la misma obra de arquitectura. Muy distinto es el objetivo de Daniel Merro. No nos ofrece una interpretación sobre esta obra, sino que nos relata cómo es interpretada una misma partitura cuyo pentagrama se tiende a lo largo de una rampa.

El presente trabajo tiene como objetivo analizar las transformaciones espaciales de la Delegación Municipal de General Daniel Cerri, en base al análisis visual de cartografía a escala 1:50.000, para el período comprendido entre 1967 y 2008. La misma se localiza en el oeste de la ciudad de Bahía Blanca ubicada en el suroeste de la Provincia de Buenos Aires. El presente estudio forma parte del proyecto “La digitalización y actualización de la carta topográfica de Bahía Blanca a escala 1: 50.000”. La metodología de este trabajo se basa en la aplicación de técnicas de producción de cartografía digital, relevamiento en el terreno y la consulta a diversas fuentes de información cartográfica como son las fotos aéreas, la carta topográfica, los planos de los sectores y las imágenes satelitales entre otras. La delegación en estudio comprende la localidad de General Cerri y los siguientes barrios: Los Chañares, Villa Bordeu y Don Ramiro. La expansión de la ciudad de Bahía Blanca en las últimas cuatro décadas ha generado nuevos espacios y modificado las áreas ya existentes, en la delegación cabe destacar el crecimiento del barrio Los Chañares que se convierte en un área residencial de baja densidad, el desarrollo de dos franjas comerciales a lo largo de las rutas nacionales Nº 35 y Nº 3 Sur, y el estancamiento del área comprendida por la localidad de General Cerri que sufre deterioros económicos y mantiene la característica de área periférica y hortícola.

    In this commentary, I highlight a few of the assertions made by McDaniel et al. (2013) about the importance of complexity science guided management practices, and extend these ideas specifically to how we might think about reducing seemingly intractable problems in health care such as patient safety, patient falls, hospital acquired infection, and the rise of chronic illness and obesity. I suggest that such changes will require managers and providers to view health care organizations and patients as complex adaptive systems and include patients as full participants in co-producing their health care.

    This article analyzes the television series The Book of Daniel, a program that shows in full relief the ways that current discourses of religion and sexuality converge to produce a particular type of gay subject. This subject, primarily male, might be understood as bound through an innate identity and commitment to the sanctity and reproduction of heteronormative institutions such as the church and state, which renders him assimilable into the social order. As homosexuality, per se, is no longer "outside" the normative order, the program constructs an unstable, nonbinary, and nonheteronormative other who is best understood as queer.

    Full Text Available The article explores book illustration as a privileged field for studying artistic interaction. Itproposes the concept of ‘surrealistic sensibility’, coined by Susan Sontag, and also the Freudian conceptof Umheimlich, as categories to understand how sometimes illustration is not only a mere visualtranslation of a written passage, but the process of transfer itself. The artist, instead of depicting, usestropes or symbols where meaning is explained by itself. Thus, rhetoric appears as a common fieldbetween literature and art. This idea is exemplified with the work of the Daniel Gil, an Spanish graphicdesigner.

El grupo que actúa como organizador del sector en sus comienzos proveniente de Europa llevaron adelante el proceso de colonización del territorio. Al ser los fundadores de la localidad actuaron como los organizadores y configuradores de la vida en el poblado desde fines del siglo XIX hasta la década del ́60 de la pasada centuria. A partir de ese momento el desplazamiento migratorio prioriza a pobladores limítrofes. Esta situación no se distancia de la realidad territorial nacional ya que nuestro país se ha forjado a lo largo de su historia con distintos arribos de migrantes. El estudio de los desplazamientos migratorios constituye un tema de interés en el marco del sistema de globalización económica que estamos viviendo ya que el mismo arrastra un proceso de globalización de la cultura y de las prácticas sociales con la consiguiente resignificación de conceptos y valores. La mayoría de estos movimientos obedece a la búsqueda de mejores oportunidades y condiciones de vida, situación que resulta de la combinación e interacción de diversos factores estructurales en su gran mayoría asentados en el problema económico. Varios autores coinciden en señalar que si bien el salario es el factor más significativo, el mismo se inscribe en una actitud no concreta y efectiva al momento de emigrar, sino anhelada. Aquí la decisión de desplazamiento de un espacio hacia otro, está inserta en un deseo esperado de obtener un salario mejor. A esta causal de traslado debemos agregarle situaciones preferenciales en cuanto a servicios de salud y educación que algunos países ofrecen en relaci

  11. If You're a Rawlsian, How Come You're So Close to Utilitarianism and Intuitionism? A Critique of Daniels's Accountability for Reasonableness.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Badano, Gabriele

    2018-03-01

    Norman Daniels's theory of 'accountability for reasonableness' is an influential conception of fairness in healthcare resource allocation. Although it is widely thought that this theory provides a consistent extension of John Rawls's general conception of justice, this paper shows that accountability for reasonableness has important points of contact with both utilitarianism and intuitionism, the main targets of Rawls's argument. My aim is to demonstrate that its overlap with utilitarianism and intuitionism leaves accountability for reasonableness open to damaging critiques. The important role that utilitarian-like cost-effectiveness calculations are allowed to play in resource allocation processes disregards the separateness of persons and is seriously unfair towards individuals whose interests are sacrificed for the sake of groups. Furthermore, the function played by intuitions in settling frequent value conflicts opens the door for sheer custom and vested interests to steer decision-making.

    The availability of diverse sources of data related to health and illness from various types of modern communication technology presents the possibility of augmenting medical knowledge, clinical care, and the patient experience. New forms of data collection and analysis will undoubtedly transform epidemiology, public health, and clinical practice, but what ethical considerations come in to play? With a view to analysing the ethical and regulatory dimensions of burgeoning forms of biomedical big data, Brent Daniel Mittelstadt and Luciano Floridi have brought together thirty scholars in an edited volume that forms part of Springer's Law, Governance and Technology book series in a collection titled The Ethics of Biomedical Big Data. With eighteen chapters partitioned into six carefully devised sections, this volume engages with core theoretical, ethical, and regulatory challenges posed by biomedical big data.

    Full Text Available Zusammenfassung Wie stark sich im Verlauf des zurückliegenden Vierteljahrhunderts der Bekanntheitsgrad Alexander von Humboldts in der deutschsprachigen Öffentlichkeit verändert hat, zeigen nicht nur Fernsehumfragen zu den berühmtesten Deutschen, in denen Alexander von Humboldt mittlerweile figuriert, oder Fernsehserien, die über aktuelle Expeditionen berichten und auf Humboldts Namen zurückgreifen. Am deutlichsten vielleicht belegt dies der enorme Erfolg von Daniel Kehlmanns Roman Die Vermessung der Welt, der ohne die zuvor skizzierte Entwicklung nicht denkbar gewesen wäre. Es ist vor diesem Hintergrund nicht nur reizvoll, sondern aufschlußreich, sich mit dem großen Erfolg dieses kleinen Romans zu beschäftigen. Worum geht es in Die Vermessung der Welt? Und wie läßt sich das „Phänomen Kehlmann“ aus etwas größerer Distanz erklären? Abstract In the last 25 years, Alexander von Humboldt‘s popularity has radically changed in the german-speaking public opinion. Proof of this are not only television surveys about the most famous germans - in which Alexander von Humboldt now regularly figures - or television series about contemporary expeditions, which constantly refer to Humboldt‘s name; perhaps what most clearly verifies this change is the great success of Daniel Kehlmann‘s novel Die Vermessung der Welt. Without the recent developments outlined above, this novel‘s degree of impact would have been unimaginable. To study the great success of this text against this backdrop is not only attractive, but also revealing. What is Die Vermessung der Welt really about? And how can we explain the „Kehlmann phenomenon“ from a greater distance? Resumen La popularidad de Alejandro de Humboldt ha cambiado profundamente dentro del último cuarto de siglo en la opinión pública de habla alemana. Prueba de esto son no sólo las encuestas televisivas sobre los alemanes más famosos, dentro de las cuales figura en estos momentos Alejandro

    This study investigated the sensory properties and acceptability of different Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) dry-cured hams. For each PDO, two genotypes were selected: IL×LW (reference hybrid) and Goland (commercial hybrid). According to descriptive analysis, genetic variance affected few attributes describing Toscano and San Daniele ham sensory quality. The commercial hybrid Parma ham was distinct from the traditional one, the Goland genotype being significantly higher in red color, saltiness, dryness and hardness and showing a lower intensity of pork-meat odor/flavor and sweetness than the IL×LW genotype. Consumer acceptance was mainly influenced by the PDO technology. A genotype effect on acceptance was only observed in Toscano ham. Principal component regression analysis revealed that Toscano ham was the preferred sample. Considering that the consumers involved were from Tuscany, it is likely that Toscano ham was preferred owing to their higher familiarity with this product. Sensory properties of ham samples were better discriminated according to their PDO than their genotype. Likewise, consumer liking was more affected by the specific PDO technology than by genetic type. Toscano ham was the most preferred and most familiar product among Tuscan consumers, indicating that familiarity with the product was the best driver of dry-cured ham preference. © 2015 Society of Chemical Industry.

ERCPs carried out from January 1998 to December 2000 in the Gastroenterology Service of Daniel Alcides Carri n Hospital were evaluated retrospectively; 17 risk factors were analyzed. A total of 202 ERCPs were carried out in 182 patients, of which 70.3% were patients aged under 60 years and 66.5% were female patients. The most frequent indication was bile duct stone suspect (59.4%). Therapeutic ERCPs were carried out in 49.5% of total ERCPs, diagnostic ERCPs were 33.2%, and failure ERCPs 17.3%. Post-ERCP complications occurred in 5.9% (12 cases), and the most frequent were: acute pancreatitis 3.4% and hemorrhage 1%. There was no mortality case related with complications. A risk factor related with the procedure: pancreatic cannulation or pancreatic contrast injections reached the highest statistic significance (p= 0.063). Therapeutic or failed ERCPs presented significant higher frequency of complications than diagnostic ERCPs: (p=0.0085 and p=0.0381). the frequency of early post-ERCP complications is 5.9%, and has a direct relation with therapeutic or failed ERCPs. This marks a difference with regards to diagnostic ERCPs. There was no mortality, and pancreatic cannulation or pancreatic contrast injections would be able to determine the development of complications.

    Full Text Available In this article the author makes a comparative analysis of two concepts of social finalism formulated with the difference of fifty years. Researchers consider.both authors to be esoteric thinkers. Daniel Andreev was fascinated with the doctrine of Elena Blavatskaya. That’s the main reason why the finalistic concepts of the above-mentioned authors are examined as interrelated ones. The definition of «social finalism» is given in the article. According to classical interpretation of the concept, finalism (from Lat. Finalis means final, being the final goal. So, under this concept the author understands the achievement of a certain final level of social development, according to the goals. Each thinker offers his/her own goals and ways of achieving, the analysis of finalistic concepts helps to identify the most common and often allocated by philosophers, and hence universal goals, ways, means and conditions; which are, in our opinion, the ones reflecting the true preferences of mankind in the choice of the future for people themselves and their descendants. In this case, the esoteric concepts are analyzed. This fact in the author’s opinion is quite relevant, since the number of people who position themselves as adherents of esoteric teachings is steadily increasing. In the social finalistic concept of Blavatskaya the purpose – «brotherhood of all mankind», means of achieving – the Duty, Mercy, Self-sacrifice, and obstacles to the achievement of the final stage of society today are considered. The article shows that all necessary changes to achieve the ideal state of society, according to Andreev, should be carried out in all spheres of public life. This study will help to understand the aspirations and hopes for social transformations of people practicing esoteric approach to the perception of life.

  4. Znaczenie intencji dla moralnej oceny czynu - stanowisko Daniela Wegnera (THE MEANING OF INTENTION FOR MORAL EVALUATION OF AN ACTION - DANIEL WEGNER VIEW

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marcin Cichosz

    2008-12-01

    Full Text Available In the article, the author attempts to compare and confront Daniel Wegner's idea of a conscious will with the selected ethic doctrines in the context of relationship between intention and the moral evaluation of an action. According to the utilitarian doctrine, when one evaluates an action intention should not be considered because only the results of an action are relevant. On the other hand, Kant and the ethics of love for fellowmen claim that intention is a direct cause of action, therefore, it is intention that should really be evaluated. On the basis of Wegner's model of a conscious will, one may state that an utilitarian attitude is more justified in many causes. In the act of volition, intention serves only as a commentary, rather than as a cause (as it is commonly believed. In Wegner's opinion the main role of intention is to explain action in the context of the plans, desires and beliefs of an agent. It is all due to the fact that in social interactions, one should always have the ability to explain one's own behavior: ignorance of the causes of one's behavior is inadmissible in this context (odium of insane action. Moreover, when intention and action match, a specific kind of feeling - phenomenal will - is added to the act of volition. This particular feeling not only strengthens the relationship between intention and action. but it also helps the agent to distinguish his own actions from other actions of other agents. It means that the ultimate form of intention may be completely different from the actual causes of a particular type of behavior.To conclude, due to Wegner's work, the utilitarian doctrine gained strong support for the thesis that intention should not be considered during the moral evaluation of action.

    Full Text Available Beyond the Soundtrack: Representing Music in Cinema (edited by Daniel Goldmark, Lawrence Kramer and Richard Leppert, Berkeley, University of California Press, 2007, viii-324 pp. offers sixteen essays of various authors about film music. These papers were presented in 2004 in a study congress at the University of Minnesota. In introducing the book, the editors assert an assumption, today broadly accepted: indeed they affirm, that music has traditionally been regarded as a subordinate element in cinematographic text: film music literature still has a marginal position in the much larger field of film studies which focuses on image, narrative, film history. In this theoretical and historiographic context, the expression “Beyond the Soundtrack” is meant to be more than a title: it is the manifesto of a conceptual shift. We can summarize this change in reconsidering the importance of film music, in order to understand a movie not only as a visual, but also as a musical medium. The change of paradigm brings renewed questions and completely new issues. If we abandon the assumption, at this point obsolete, that film music has a mere functional role, it will be necessary to ask not how to conceptualize the use of music in film, but rather how the film conceptualizes music: how films imagine music, how films represent music as an artistic and social phenomenon, and how films position music as an integral parts of a fictional world. Such questions aim to consider film music not as an atmospheric expedient, but «as an agent, a force, and an object engaged in ongoing negotiations with image, narrative, and context», as the editors assert at the very beginning of their book.

    The Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy, during a historic event in Spring 2016, graduated the first two students in the Pacific region to earn a PhD in pharmaceutical sciences at the University of Hawai'i at Hilo. The college offers PhD programs in these five disciplines: Cancer Biology, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutics, Pharmacognosy, and Pharmacology. One of the Pharmacognosy dissertations focused on plant-derived natural products with potential anti-inflammatory and cancer chemopreventive activities. Physalis peruviana (Pp) L. originated in tropical South America. It has become naturalized and is found readily on the Island of Hawai'i. The edible fruits are commonly known as cape gooseberry or poha in Hawai'i. In part of our study, three new withanolides, physaperuvin G ( 1 ), physaperuvins I-J ( 2 - 3 ), along with four known withanolides, namely, 4β-hydroxywithanolide E ( 4 ), withaperuvin C ( 5 ), and physalactone ( 6 ), coagulin ( 7 ) were isolated from the aerial parts of P. peruviana . In addition, two known compounds, phyperunolide F ( 8 ), and withanolide S ( 9 ), were isolated and identified from the poha berry fruits. The structures and absolute stereochemistry of new compounds from poha were elucidated by several spectroscopy methods: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and mass spectrometry analyses. All isolated poha compounds (aerial parts and fruits) were evaluated for their anti-inflammatory activity with lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-activated murine macrophage RAW 264.7 cells, and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α)-activated nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB) with transfected human embryonic kidney cells 293. Most of the isolated natural compounds showed activity with these assays. Additional studies were performed with models of colon cancer. Specifically, 4β-hydroxywithanolide E (4HWE) inhibited the growth of colon cancer monolayer and spheroid cultures. The compound induced cell cycle arrest at low

    Purpose: To assess the outcomes, toxicity, and quality of life (QOL) of patients with primary parotid carcinoma treated with surgery and postoperative radiotherapy at the Daniel den Hoed Cancer Center. Methods and Materials: Between 1995 and 2010, 186 patients with parotid carcinoma were treated with parotidectomy with or without neck dissection, followed by radiotherapy. Elective nodal irradiation (ENI) was applied to high-risk, node-negative disease. End points were locoregional control (LRC), disease-free survival (DFS), cause-specific survival (CSS), and overall survival (OS), late toxicity, and QOL. Results: After a median follow-up of 58 months (range, 4–172 months), the 5-year Kaplan-Meier estimates for LRC, DFS, CSS, and OS were 89%, 83%, 80%, and 68%, respectively. Forty-five events were reported: 24 distant metastases (DM) and 21 locoregional failures (LRF). Event-free survival rates by histological types were 89%, 78%, 76%, 74%, and 70% for acinic cell, mucoepidermoid, adenoid cystic, adenocarcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma, respectively. More LRF were reported in patients with squamous cell and high-grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma (21% and 19%, respectively) than in patients with other histological types (p = 0.04) and more DM in patients with adenoid cystic and adenocarcinoma (20% and 19%, respectively) than in patients with other types (p = 0.03). None of the high-risk node-negative patients who received ENI developed regional failure. On multivariate analysis, T stage, N stage, grade, and presence of perineural invasion and facial paralysis correlated significantly with DFS. The 5-year cumulative incidence of grade ≥2 late toxicity was 8%. QOL scores deteriorate during and shortly after treatment but returned in almost all scales to baseline scores within 6 months. Conclusions: Of the entire group, surgery and postoperative radiotherapy resulted in excellent outcomes with minimal side effects and preservation of good QOL scores. However, in

    Full Text Available În iunie 1851, Dumitru Brătianu s-a alăturat Comitetului Democratic European dela Londra, condus de Giuseppe Mazzini. Scopul românilor a fost de a lua parte, alături de alte naţionalităţi, la revoluţia europeană împotriva autorităţii tradiţionale a guvernelor dinastice, în special împotriva imperiilor Habsburgic şi Ţarist, şi în favoarea autodeterminării naţionale şi instituţionale.În acest context, polemica cu exilul maghiar a fost inevitabilă, din moment ce liderii Revoluţiei maghiare din 1848 se aflau tot în exil şi la fel urmăreau autodeterminarea naţională. O dispută referitoare la ideea de naţiune a avut loc între Dumitru Brătianu şi Daniel Iranyi, fost secretar al Comitetului Salvării Publice dela Pesta, publicată în paginile ziarului francez „La Presse”.ROMANIANS AND HUNGARIANS IN A POLITICAL DISPUTE OVER THE IDEA OF NATION: DUMITRU BRĂTIANU AND DANIEL IRANYI ÎN „LA PRESS” NEWSPAPER (1851In June 1851, Dumitru Brătianu had joined Giuseppe Mazzini’s European Democratic Committee of London. The purpose of the Romanians was to take part together with the other nationalities at the European revolution against the authority traditionally exercised by the dynastic governments, especially against the Habsburg and the Tsarist Empires, in favor of a national and institutional self-determination.In this context, a polemic with the Hungarian exile was inevitable, since the leaders of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848 were also in exile and were too aiming for national self-determination. A dispute over the idea of nation took place in the pages of the French newspaper „La Presse”, between Dumitru Brătianu and Daniel Iranyi, the former secretary of the Public Salvation Committee of Pest.

    Full Text Available El presente trabajo se propone analizar la posición de Daniel Dennett con respecto a la realidad y naturaleza del yo. El autor considera que la concepción del yo humano propia del sentido común, en tanto que un elemento único, simple, idéntico y continuo, es fundamentalmente una ficción. A partir de este diagnóstico, Dennett se propone ofrecer una explicación de este fenómeno ilusorio desde una doble perspectiva: la heterofenomenología y la memética. La primera y segunda parte de este trabajo estarán destinadas a desarrollar respectivamente estos dos enfoques. En la tercera parte serán analizadas las afirmaciones hechas por el autor dentro de los mencionados marcos teóricos, con el objetivo de mostrar que ambos desarrollos no se complementan entre sí, sino que, por el contrario, presentan ciertas contradicciones a la hora de reconstruir la postura dennettiana global con respecto al yo humano.

A total of 130 healthy Japanese individuals divided by age group performed isometric muscle contractions at maximum effort for various movements of hip joint flexion and extension and knee joint flexion and extension, and the accompanying resisting force was measured and maximum muscle strength value (moment max, Mm was calculated. Body weight and limb segment length (thigh and lower leg length were measured, and Mf was calculated using anthropometric measures and theoretical calculation. There was a linear correlation between Mf and Mm in each of the four movement types in all groups, excepting knee flexion in elderly. However, the formula for predicting maximum muscle strength was not sufficiently compatible in middle-aged and elderly adults, suggesting that the formula obtained in this study is applicable in young adults only.

    Full Text Available Understanding spatial and temporal variations in river water quality and quantitatively evaluating the trend of changes are important in order to study and efficiently manage water resources. In this study, an analysis of Water Pollution Index (WPI, Daniel Trend Test, Cluster Analysis and Discriminant Analysis are applied as an integrated approach to quantitatively explore the spatial and temporal variations and the latent sources of water pollution in the Shanchong River basin, Northwest Basin of Lake Fuxian, China. We group all field surveys into 2 clusters (dry season and rainy season. Moreover, 14 sampling sites have been grouped into 3 clusters for the rainy season (highly polluted, moderately polluted and less polluted sites and 2 clusters for the dry season (highly polluted and less polluted sites based on their similarities and the level of pollution during the two seasons. The results show that the main trend of pollution was aggravated during the transition from the dry to the rainy season. The Water Pollution Index of Total Nitrogen is the highest of all pollution parameters, whereas the Chemical Oxygen Demand (Chromium is the lowest. Our results also show that the main sources of pollution are farming activities alongside the Shanchong River, soil erosion and fish culture at Shanchong River reservoir area and domestic sewage from scattered rural residential area. Our results suggest that strategies to prevent water pollutionat the Shanchong River basin need to focus on non-point pollution control by employing appropriate fertilizer formulas in farming, and take the measures of soil and water conservation at Shanchong reservoir area, and purifying sewage from scattered villages.

    Full Text Available La coppia criminale è un fenomeno poco comune nell'ambito dei delitti in quanto la maggior parte dei criminali commette il crimine da solo o coinvolge altri individui solo per caso. Ciò nonostante, la letteratura rivela una serie di coppie criminali che hanno commesso diversi crimini, fino ad arrivare all’omicidio. Alcuni hanno ucciso per denaro, altri per odio, altri ancora per amore, per vendetta, per perversione. Bonnie e Clyde, Olindo e Rosa, Erika e Omar sono espressione di un viaggio nel fenomeno del “crimine di coppia” in cui manifestazioni di follia a due, al di là dell’infatuazione reciproca e della dipendenza psicologica, si svuotano di qualsiasi accezione romantica per concretizzarsi in qualcosa di spaventoso e incontenibile, capace di sfuggire ad ogni tipo di catalogazione e comprensione. Nel presente lavoro, in particolare, si andrà ad analizzare la coppia criminale degli autori della strage di Erba, che verrà esaminata nell’ottica della coscienza intersoggettiva di Stern. Le couple criminel est un phénomène rare puisque la majorité des crimes sont commis par des criminels seuls ou ce n’est que par hasard qu’ils impliquent d’autres personnes. Toutefois, la littérature parle d’une série de couples criminels qui ont commis des différents types de crimes (homicide inclus. Certains d’entre eux tuent pour de l’argent, certains autres à cause de la haine, de l’amour, de la revanche ou de la perversion. Bonnie et Clyde, Olindo et Rosa, Erika et Omar constituent des exemples du phénomène du « crime en couple ». Ce sont des situations de folie à deux qui n’ont aucune acception romantique et qui se traduisent en quelque chose d’horrifiant et d’incontrôlé. Dans cet article, les auteurs vont analyser le couple criminel composé par les responsables du massacre de Erba (Italie du Nord.

    In the past 5 years the general attitude towards solar energy has turned from negative to positive. This in itself, however, will not accelerate the introduction of solar energy very much. On the contrary, some of the plans and programs following from it are unrealistic and counter-productive. The better way to go is realism and inspiring the best scientists and politicians to take up the vast amount of R and D work and societal restructuring that has still to be done. Energy has become so vital to mankind that solar energy as a substitute for conventional energy sources will be indispensable for maintaining peace. (author)

    Full Text Available Females of simuliid black flies are haematophagous insects and vectors of several pathogenic agents of human diseases such as the filarial worms Mansonella ozzardi and Onchocerca volvulus. The genus Cerqueirellum is one of the most important groups of vectors of mansonellosis and onchocerciasis diseases in South America, and the genera Coscaroniellum and Shelleyellum are phylogenetically close to Cerqueirellum. There is not yet an agreement among authors about the generic classification of the species which compose these three genera, being all lumped by some taxonomists within Psaroniocompsa. A cladistic analysis of all species of Coscaroniellum, Cerqueirellum, and Shelleyellum, based on 41 morphological characters were done. Species closely related to Cerqueirellum were included in the analysis. The genera Cerqueirellum, Coscaroniellum and Shelleyellum were demonstrated as consistent basal entities and well-defined monophyletic clades.As fêmeas de piuns ou borrachudos da família Simuliidae são hematófagas e vetoras de diversos patógenos, destacando-se os vermes filarióides Mansonella ozzardi e Onchocerca volvulus. Dentre os grupos supra-específicos que são vetores de mansonelose e oncocercose na América do Sul, destaca-se o gênero Cerqueirellum. Os gêneros Coscaroniellum e Shelleyellum são filogeneticamente muito próximos a Cerqueirellum. Não existia concordância quanto à validade de Cerqueirellum e Coscaroniellum como clados supra-específicos, sendo ambos os gêneros incluídos, por uma escola taxonômica, como grupos de espécies em Psaroniocompsa.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Victoria Hegner

    2002-05-01

    Full Text Available The book "Überlebenskunst in Übergangswelten" [The Art of Surviving in Transitional Worlds] is the first of two recent publications from the Ethnological-Psychological Centre in Zurich. The branch of the Asylum-Organisation of the Canton Zurich offers people who have fled their home country and who are now suffering from psychological crisis, inpatient or in-house or ambulatory treatment. The refugees physically escaped war, torture and/or imprisonment. However, they are unable to master the difficult process of migration and gradual arrival integration into the new, cultural and social contexts in Switzerland. As a result they have psychological problems, which make it impossible for them to live a "normal" everyday life. In three houses of the Centre, the so-called Foyers, they can find potential help. The migrants meet with a team of five ethno-psychologists, which uses ethnological and psychological approaches in order to understand the newcomers' problems. Within their work, the professionals of the Centre have developed a theoretical and methodological repertoire, which is of model-character not only within Switzerland but also for other countries. David SIGNER focuses in his article on characteristic conflicts and patterns of interaction in everyday life in the Foyers. The author emphasises the need to be open for all sorts of perception and communication. Furthermore, he sheds light on the various "pitfalls" in trying to create interaction. Elena WERTLI's text concentrates on refugees suffering from suicidal crisis. She explicates that a continued dialog is sometimes of more help for people in extreme psychological situations than a fast intervention. Daniel STUTZ' approach towards the problems of a Kurdish family is to first reconstruct the latter's individual life histories. The method enables him to explain the ongoing physical problems and the family's growing fear to get infected by bacteria as an expression of the couple's fear

    2013-11-01

    The present study investigated the experience of schadenfreude among children. Participants were 4- to 8-year-old children (n = 100) who were told stories of another child experiencing a misfortune while pursuing a morally positive versus morally negative goal. Schadenfreude, sympathy, and helping behaviour towards the suffering child were assessed. Results showed that beginning at the age of 4, emotional and behavioural reactions towards a misfortune of another child were predicted by the moral valence of the other child's goal. Furthermore, morally negative goals decreased helping behaviour and morally positive goals increased helping behaviour. Multilevel mediation analysis revealed that the relation between goal valence and helping behaviour was mediated by both schadenfreude and sympathy. However, those effects were especially pronounced in older children. © 2013 The British Psychological Society.

    Many of us have sketched (by hand or on the computer) depictions of macroautophagy; however, how often have we considered which elements in the drawing are key to illustrating the process? These types of illustrations are easily modified and/or discarded. On the other hand, if you plan to depict the process of macroautophagy in a more permanent medium you need to be more thoughtful about the composition. What items must be included? How should they be situated? What should be the size of each component? Here, we consider one example of an artist's approach to depicting macroautophagy in a mixed-medium sculpture.

    Autori sõnul on ainus viis terrorismi vastu võitlemiseks sõja asendamine poliitiliste lahenduste otsimisega. Selles võiks keskne roll olla Euroopal ja ÜRO-l. Euroopa peaks distantseeruma USA sõjalisest poliitikast, nõudma okupatsiooni lõpetamist Iraagis ning okupatsioonivägede asendamist ÜRO juhitud rahuvalvejõududega

    The use of renewable energy is promoted worldwide to be less dependent on fossil fuels and nuclear energy. Therefore research in the field is driven to increase efficiency of renewable energy systems. This study aimed to develop a wind turbine for low wind speeds in South Africa. Although there is a greater tendency to use solar panels because of the local weather conditions, there are some practical implications that have put the use of solar panels in certain areas to an end....

    Full Text Available El siguiente trabajo resume y analiza en profundidad el libro Ética de la Hospitalidad de D. Innerarity, en donde se utiliza a la hospitalidad como metáfora del riesgo. Si bien reconocemos el genio del autor para tratar ciertos temas, considerando su obra de gran valía, hacemos énfasis en sus limitaciones para ligar al riesgo con la esfera moral. Nuestra tesis, apunta a que el riesgo debe ser definido como un discurso cuya función, inherentemente amoral, es fijar ciertas barreras y códigos para regular las prácticas sociales. En síntesis, el riesgo no solo es funcional a la organización económica que lo sustenta, sino que dificulta el cambio social. Palabras clave: riesgo, hospitalidad, modernidad, economía_______________Abstract:This present essay review examines in retail the book Ethic of Hospitality, which authored by D. Innerarity recurs to the role of hospitality as a metaphor of the modern risk. Although we must recognize his erudition in dealing with some topics, considering this book as a master-work, it is important to focus on his limitations to link the risk towards moral sphere. Our thesis is that risks should be reconsidered as narratives whose functions, proper of the lack of morality, build certain barriers and codes to monitor the social practices. In sum, risk not only works to sustain the economic order, but also hampers the social change. Keywords: Risk, Hospitality, Modernity, Economy.

En los mismos se llevó a cabo la explotación de miles y miles de trabajadores bajo condiciones inhumanas de trabajo y salarios miserables. El familiar era el perro del diablo o el diablo mismo, podía también adoptar formas de viborón, toro, burro, por lo general era un perro, negro, desprendía llamaradas de fuego por los ojos, tenía una fuerza descomunal en sus garras, con quién el patrón del ingenio o capataz había hecho un pacto: que saciaría su hambre con la entrega de un obrero por año, y éste le aseguraría prosperidad. En distintas situaciones un obrero podía encontrar la muerte, sea por accidentes, sea cayendo a una caldera, atrapado en una cinta trituradora de la caña, o si un trabajador desaparecía se decía que era obra “del familiar”.

Stochastic capacities and loads are assumed for the models studied herein. The VoI is obtained...... with a prior and a pre-posterior decision analysis. The prior decision analysis takes basis in the design phase of the structural system. Pre-posterior decision analysis builds upon modelling results of not yet conducted experiments. In order to perform the prior and pre-posterior Bayesian decision analysis......, the expected life-cycle benefit of the considered systems are computed. The difference in the expected benefits relating to the prior and pre-posterior decision analysis leads to the VoI.

    2005-01-01

    Blue tilapia (Oreochromis aureus), native to North Africa and the Middle East (Courtenay and Robins 1973, Fuller et al. 1999), has been introduced around the world as a human food source, for vegetation control, and as a game fish (Costa-Pierce and Riedel 2000). Blue tilapia has been particularly successful in establishing and spreading in North American waters where it has been reported to change fish community structure and cause native fish decline (Courtenay and Robins 1973, Fuller et al. 1999). Because of these detrimental effects, it is now generally considered an unwelcome introduction into North American waters (Dill and Cordone 1997, Fuller et al. 1999).

  8. A radiobiological comparison of human tumor soft-agar clonogenic assays.

    Science.gov (United States)

    West, C M; Sutherland, R M

    1986-06-15

    Radiation survival curves have been generated for 3 human tumor cell lines as a means of comparing and evaluating the validity of human tumor soft-agar clonogenic assays. The assays investigated were the Hamburger-Salmon, Courtenay-Mills, Courtenay-Mills plus additions, soft agar (no additions), and soft agar plus additions. The additions were formulated to supplement the media used in soft agar assays of primary ovarian and cervical carcinoma specimens. Supplementing the media with additions led to a 2- to 3-fold increase in PE of CaSki cells but had no effect on the PEs of ME180 and OWI cells. Radiation survival curves were similar in all assays for CaSki and OWI but differed for ME180 cells. For ME180 cells, the Courtenay-Mills and soft agar assays plus additions produced the most radioresistant curves (Do = 2.2 Gy); the cells were more responsive when assayed by the Hamburger-Salmon method (Do = 1.5 Gy), and the soft agar and Courtenay-Mills assays gave the most radiosensitive curves (Do = 1.2 Gy). These results demonstrate that the PE of human tumor cell lines may be increased with no effect on radiation survival; radiation survival may be altered without changes in PE and neither may be altered by applying modifications and supplements to existing clonogenic assays.

    Full Text Available The publication stemming from the research project “Governing Prostitution” at the University of Leipzig approaches the question as to which problems of definition, categorization, and inventories of knowledge local administrators in Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic use as a basis for regulating prostitution. The study shows that law not only implements partially autonomous governing acts but also produces them. The monograph enters into uncharted territory with its local focus on the regulation of prostitution as its subject and its state-based ethnographical approach. A little more information as to methodology as well as a more explicit take on the theoretical concepts in the format of the empirical materials would have been desirable.Die aus dem Forschungsprojekt ‚Verwaltung der Prostitution‘ an der Universität Leipzig heraus entstandene Publikation geht der Frage nach, welche Problemdefinitionen, Kategorisierungen und Wissensbestände lokale Verwaltungsakteure/-innen in Deutschland, Polen und Tschechien der Prostitutionsregulierung zugrunde legen. Die Studie zeigt, dass teilautonomes Verwaltungshandeln Recht nicht nur umsetzt, sondern auch produziert. Durch den Fokus auf die lokale Ebene der Prostitutionsregulierung und durch den staatsethnographischen Zugang ist die Monographie in zweierlei Hinsicht innovativ. Lediglich etwas mehr Informationen zum methodischen Vorgehen sowie ein expliziteres Aufgreifen der theoretischen Konzepte bei der Aufbereitung des empirischen Materials wären wünschenswert gewesen.

In a broth model system, phage P100 at a concentration equal to or greater than 7 log PFU/mL completely inhibited 2 log CFU/cm2 or 3 log CFU/cm2 of L. monocytogenes growth at 30 °C. The temperature (4, 10, 20 °C seemed to influence P100 activity; the best results were obtained at 4 °C. On dry-cured ham slices, a P100 concentration ranging from 5 to 8 log PFU/cm2 was required to obtain a significant reduction in L. monocytogenes. At 4, 10, and 20 °C, an inoculum of 8 log PFU/cm2 was required to completely eliminate 2 log L. monocytogenes/cm2 and to reach the absence in 25 g product according to USA food law. Conversely, it was impossible to completely eradicate L. monocytogenes with an inoculum of approximately of 3.0 and 4.0 log CFU/cm2 and with a P100 inoculum ranging from 1 to 7 log PFU/cm2. P100 remained stable on dry-cured ham slices over a 14-day storage period, with only a marginal loss of 0.2 log PFU/cm2 from an initial phage treatment of approximately 8 log PFU/cm2. Moreover, phage P100 eliminated free L. monocytogenes cells and biofilms on the machinery surfaces used for dry-cured ham production. These findings demonstrate that the GRAS bacteriophage Listex P100 at level of 8 log PFU/cm2 is listericidal and useful for reducing the L. monocytogenes concentration or eradicating the bacteria from dry-cured ham.

There is an increasing body of both gray literature and gray excavation: work that is done in compliance with state and federal laws but which never reaches an audience of more than a dozen or so readers. Given this discouraging trend, the compendious The Buried Past is a welcomed synthesis of several generations of aca­demic and CRM investigations into the historical archaeology of the Greater Philadelphia region.

    Full Text Available Die aus dem Forschungsprojekt ‚Verwaltung der Prostitution‘ an der Universität Leipzig heraus entstandene Publikation geht der Frage nach, welche Problemdefinitionen, Kategorisierungen und Wissensbestände lokale Verwaltungsakteure/-innen in Deutschland, Polen und Tschechien der Prostitutionsregulierung zugrunde legen. Die Studie zeigt, dass teilautonomes Verwaltungshandeln Recht nicht nur umsetzt, sondern auch produziert. Durch den Fokus auf die lokale Ebene der Prostitutionsregulierung und durch den staatsethnographischen Zugang ist die Monographie in zweierlei Hinsicht innovativ. Lediglich etwas mehr Informationen zum methodischen Vorgehen sowie ein expliziteres Aufgreifen der theoretischen Konzepte bei der Aufbereitung des empirischen Materials wären wünschenswert gewesen.

    The precision medicine initiative brought forth by President Barack Obama in 2015 is an important step on the journey to truly personalized medicine. A broad knowledge and understanding of the implications of the pharmacogenomic literature will be critical to the achievement of this goal. While a great amount of data has been published in the areas of pharmacogenomics and pharmacogenetics, there are still relatively few instances in which the need for clinical intervention can be stated without doubt, and which are widely accepted and practiced by the medical community. As our knowledge base rapidly expands, issues such as insurance reimbursement for genetic testing and education of the health care workforce will be paramount to achieving the goal of precision medicine for all patients.

The objectives of this study were to survey the Trichomycete fungi associated with larvae of Simulium goeldii and S. ulyssesi, and to determine if there is specificity and/or difference in the infection rates in these species. Black flies were collected in Central Amazônia, Brazil. Three genera of Trichomycetes were found: Harpella, Genistellospora and Smittium. All these fungi were common to both black fly species.

  14. Formalism in the first half of the twentieth century: ‘pure science’ or a case of effective rhetoric? Mitchell B. Frank and Daniel Adler (eds, German Art History and Scientific Thought – Beyond Formalism, Ashgate, 2012

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Arnold Witte

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available German Art History and Scientific Thought – Beyond Formalism discusses the relation between art history and the human and natural sciences in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. All contributions in this volume highlight the way in which this exchange affected art history on a practical and methodological level, but at the same time illustrate how the quest for objectivity and scientific methods was accompanied by an irrational search for essential characteristics of art through race. Especially the exchange with psychology, physiognomy, and psychophysiology supported this kind reasoning in circles in which objectivity was related to holistic explanations. This led to a rhetoric of objective Kunstwissenschaft that spoke in terms of rational facts, but in which the concepts of character and evolution resulted in highly ideological interpretations, which became discredited after 1945. However, the post-war reaction to this in itself again affected another turn towards the ‘objective’ which goes to show how external, political, changes affected the relation between art history and the sciences.

  3. Retrofit of new digital control systems in existing power stations

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Smith, J.E.; Baird, C.F.

    1986-01-01

    With the notable exception of the Canadian CANDU nuclear power stations, little use has been made of digital control in North American nuclear stations. Recently, however, there has been renewed interest in such systems within the nuclear industry in response to demands for better ergonomics in control room design and the obsolescence of control equipment whose fundamental design has changed little in 20 yr. Early in 1985, Atomic Energy of Canada Limited was asked by New Brunswick Power to advise on the redesign of the control systems for two fossil-fired generating stations, Coleson Cove and Courtenay Bay Unit 4. Coleson Cove is to be converted from oil to coal firing with consequent extensive control system changes and Courtenay Bay Unit 4 required a low-cost solution to the problem of relocating its control room from the existing isolated location to the combined control center used by units 1, 2, and 3. In both cases, the recommended solution involves the retrofit of state-of-the-art digital control systems. Although the units involved are nonnuclear the experience is applicable

    Full Text Available Objective – To evaluate the use of The Cochrane Library by librarians, health care providers and consumers in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. Design – Volunteer telephone interviews and surveys of training participants at multiple time points; usage statistics.Setting – Saskatchewan.Subjects – Ninety-four volunteers participated in the study. Participants were self-selected from approximately 300 health practitioners and 100 public library staff attending training sessions, located primarily in rural areas. The majority of public library staff who attended training sessions were not professional librarians, although 31.5% of the study participants were librarians. Nurses made up the next largest group (16.3%, followed by therapists (7.6%, library support staff (5.4%,pharmacists (4.3%, physicians (3.3%, other health care providers (20.7%, and other (9.8%. Most were 40-65 years of age (71.6%and female (92.4%.Methods – Forty-six training sessions were provided upon request between October 2004 and December 2006. Attendees wereinvited to participate in the study. Telephone interviews were conducted at three, six, nine, and twelve months following training sessions. Demographic information and data on the use of andsatisfaction with The Cochrane Library were collected. Additionally, monthly statistics were tracked by Wiley-Blackwell for user sessions, number of searches, and the number of full-text articles and abstracts visited.Main Results – Telephone interviews revealed that 65.2% of participants had accessed The Cochrane Library at three months; 64.2% had at six months. At nine months access dropped to 45.2%. At twelve months only 27.4% of participants reported using the resource. Of those who used The Cochrane Library, 16.4% reported at the three month interview that it was not helpful. This number decreased at six months (11.6%, nine months (7.7% and twelve months (11.8%. 57.5% of respondents claimed to have learned something from The Cochrane Library, although a few (11.1%reported that the information found had no impact. Others reported that the knowledge gained confirmed their beliefs (26.1%and/or helped in decision-making (32.6%. No time points were reported for the data collected about the use and helpfulness of information found in The Cochrane Library. Three-year data from Wiley-Blackwell showed that The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews was most frequently accessed (abstracts=26,016; full texts=15,934. The Cochrane Central Register was accessed5,640 times and Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects was accessed 1,612 times. Periods of low usage corresponded withsummer and Christmas breaks. The type of search strategy used was tracked; the authors note that an emphasis on MeSH during training between October 2004 and December 2006 corresponded with the higher number of MeSH searches during the same time period. Participants reported using The Cochrane Library in response topatron requests, to prepare educational materials, and to support health care policy and practice changes. Reasons for not using The Cochrane Library included lack of time, limited access to the Internet, forgetting how to find and use the Web site, and disappointment with the content.Conclusion – Since the fall of 2004, The Cochrane Library has been promoted and made available free of charge to all Saskatchewan residents. Usage fluctuates during the year, with less use during the summer and winter holidays; it is reasonable to presume that students use The Cochrane Library during the academic school year. Most telephone interviewees who used The Cochrane Library reported that it was somewhat to very helpful; this number increased slightly over time while the number of respondents who used the resource fell measurably over twelve months. In other words, those who continued to use The Cochrane Library over time were more likely to report a higher level of satisfaction with the resource. Interviews indicated how librarians used The Cochrane Library, why they do or do not use the resource, and their level of satisfaction. The study revealed less about how others, such as practitioners or consumers, use the resource. Based on the limits of the telephone interviews, follow-up studies should try to capture more detailed usage data to describe the attributes of those who do and do not use The Cochrane Library. The authors note that additional data collected through online surveys or the Wiley-Blackwell website could help determine how to sustain use of the resource.

    En el cuento “El jardín de senderos que se bifurcan” un personaje, Stephen Albert, propone un modelo de adivinanza que se construye a partir de la prohibición de nombrar aquello a lo que se quiere referir. Esta prohibición, aclara Albert, es una manera del énfasis. Tal vez por rechazo de toda forma enfática, los enigmas que propone Borges responden en general al modelo opuesto, aquel que nombra al objeto del enigma y se oculta en la máxima visibilidad. Ejemplos de esto pueden ser el epígrafe ...

    The primary risk for prostate cancer is aging, often associated with inflammation. Evidence implicates progressive age-related immune dysfunction with increased prostate cancer incidence and mortality. The aged T-cell response is characterized by increased production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which could significantly contribute to prostate tumorigenesis through induction of key inflammation-mediated pro-survival factors. T-cell function of the young (22-month-old) mouse. Serum and splenic T-lymphocytes from young GPAT-1(-/-) (6 months) and aged wild type (22 months) mice were collected for in vitro studies, including a cytokine immunoarray for serum cytokine levels, luciferase assays for NF-κB activation and Western blot analyses for protein expression. The T-cell cytokine profile of the GPAT-1(-/-) mice mirrored that observed in aged wild type mice, including higher expression levels of IL-17. Serum- and T-cell-derived factors induced NF-κB activity in normal, non-transformed and prostate cancer epithelial cells, correlating with re-localization of NF-κB and increased protein expression of downstream targets of NF-κB. The aging and aging-mimic mice produced circulating factors that induce pro-inflammatory pathways in prostate cells, most notably NF-κB. These findings provide evidence that an aged T-cell may directly contribute to the increased risk for prostate cancer in the elderly and establish that the GPAT-1(-/-) model, which mimics many of the characteristics of an aged immune system, is a viable tool for investigating this novel area of cancer risk.

    Full Text Available Objective – To outline the collaborative development of an online course addressing academic integrity by a university’s library system and writing centre.Design – Case study.Setting – A public research university in the Midwestern United States.Subjects – 1650 students who completed the online module.Methods – Oakland University (OU Libraries and the Writing Centre began to collaborate on the development of a new online course on academic integrity in 2011. It was felt that an existing online library tutorial on plagiarism no longer met the needs of students and faculty. The development of the course was informed by the Association of College and Research Libraries’ Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (2000 as well as a research study investigating students’ use of sources in their scholarly writing across several institutions. Moodle, the institution’s learning management system (LMS, was used to develop the learning object.Main Results – OU Libraries and the Writing Centre launched the six-part online course entitled “Using and Citing Sources” in January 2012. They developed modules around learning outcomes in five broad categories: defining academic integrity and plagiarism; the use of sources in academic writing; paraphrasing; quoting; and citation. The final module provided students with an opportunity to practise lessons learned in the first five modules. The use of the LMS to design and host the course limited the tutorial to registered students, but provided developers with access to additional course functionality without labour-intensive coding. It also allowed Writing Centre staff to access students’ performance data on the modules prior to their appointments. Improvements over the previous online tutorial included expanded content on academic ethics and referencing, more active learning elements, video content, and the opportunity for students to choose discipline-specific examples. In the first four months of its availability, 1650 students completed the course, with 3330 attempts overall.Conclusion – The diverse perspectives and expertise that individuals from OU Libraries and the Writing Center brought to their collaboration greatly informed the development of the course. The time and effort saved by using the university’s existing LMS to develop interactive content and the focus on providing students with opportunities for active learning within the course contributed to the project’s success.

    This report explains the contradictions between the European liberalization process and the logics of the French public utilities at three different levels: historical, economical and legal: 1 - the public utilities and Europe: the French model, the European change, an inexorable-like designed process; 2 - the dead-end of network activities liberalization: destructive strategy of the unique market, forced introduction of competition into networks, the dark side of a non-judicious liberalization: convergence towards the private monopoly, degradation of services quality, destruction of solidarity mechanisms, occurrence of new risks; 3 - public utilities in front of the European law: a basic concept of French administrative right (area and principles of public utilities), European juridical approach (confuse definition and surveillance regime), weak consideration (symbolic acknowledgement, marginal juridical protection).

    Full Text Available Objective – To determine whether hospital charges, length of stay or 30-day readmission rates were affected by case discussion at residents’ morning report (MR, accompanied by librarian-provided literature search results, within 24 hours of admission. Design – Case-control study and survey.Setting – Louisiana State University School of Medicine.Subjects – MR cases presented during the study period August 2004 to March 2005 matched with one to three cases (controls of patients who were hospitalised in the period January 2000 to July 2005. House officers who presented the MR cases during the study period were the subjects for the survey.Methods – MR cases were presented between 8:00am and 9:00am, five days a week, and only one case was presented at each MR. During the study period, August 2004 to March 2005, the presenting house officer selected independently a case for presentation at MR from patients admitted during the previous 24 hours. The selection was made without guidance as to which cases or illnesses to choose and without the knowledge or involvement of the attending physician or investigators. The term “house officer” is not defined in the article so it is not clear whether this refers to medical residents only, or if it includes interns. The faculty librarian, with clinical input from the chief resident or the chair of the Department of Medicine, conducted a search of the medical literature immediately following the MR to identify articles or citations that would answer two questions posed at the end of the presentation. The chair of the department or chief resident selected the articles that provided the most clinically sound answers to the questions. By 10:00 am, copies of the selected articles were hand-delivered to the presenting house officer and shared with members of the ward team.For the case-control component, the MR cases presented during the study period were matched against a comparison group of patients who were hospitalised in the period January 2000 to July 2005. Matching of controls to the MR cases was made on the basis of the primary International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9 diagnostic code, patient age and concomitant secondary diagnosis. MR cases with nomatching control case were excluded from analysis of length of stay, costs or readmission rates. A maximum of three control cases were randomly selected where a MR case matched with more than three control cases. Data regarding demographic information of the patient (age, sex, race, insurance coverage, marital status and number of diseases diagnosed, the length of stay, total hospitalisation charges and readmission rates within 30 days of initial discharge were extracted from the medical records of matched MR and control cases. Statistical tests (Student T or chi-squared tests were used to compare differences between the demographic details of patients in the MR group and the control cases. Wilcoxon signed rank test and Sign test were used to analyse nonparametric data such as length of stay and hospital charges. Median values, rather than the mean, wereused for the outcome measures to reduce the influence of any extreme or outlier values. The researchers considered a p value less than p = 0.05 to be statistically significant. For the survey component of the study, each presenting house officer was asked to complete a questionnaire for each MR case they presented during the study period, which asked them to comment on the quality of the articles located in response to the questions posed at the MR and to saywhether the information would influence their treatment of the patient. A copy of the questionnaire is accessible online via a linkwithin the article; however it is not stated who analyzed the results or how this was done.Main Results – Of the 105 cased presented at MR during the study period, 55 cases could be matched with at least one control up to a maximum of three cases, resulting in a total of 136 control cases.Statistical analysis of the MR cases and the control cases showed no significant difference in the demographic details between the groups.MR cases had a median length of stay of three days compared to five days for control cases. This difference was statistically significant (p = 0.0238. A logarithmic plot comparing length of stay between MR cases and controls showed a positive association that was statistically significant (p = 0.012 between presentation at MR and a reduced median length of stay. Median hospitalisation charges were $7,045 for the MR cases and $10,663 for the controlcases; however, the difference was not statistically significant (p = 0.24. A logarithmic plot for total charges showed that, in most cases, charges for MR cases were lower than controls; however, thedifferences did not reach statistical significance (p = 0.18. Readmission rates within thirty days of initial discharge were 16.4% for MR cases and 16.8% for controls. There was no statistically significant difference in readmission rates between the groups (p >0.88. Analysis of the survey responses found that the house officers commented on the quality of the articles for 60 of the 105 MR cases presented. In 43 cases, the house officer commented that the articles had a positive influence on patient management. Comments for a further ten cases indicated that, although they did not alter the management of MR patient cases, the house officers believed that the articles provided good background information which may be helpful in the future. Seven other comments indicated that the articles had not influenced their patient management in anyrespect.Conclusion – Presentation of cases at MR accompanied by dissemination of literature search results resulted in a statistically significant shortened median length of stay and lower hospital charges compared to matched control cases. Readmission rates within 30 days of first diagnosis showed no differences between MR cases and control cases. Supplementary survey results found that the 41% of the presenting house officers believed that the literature search information provided following the MR presentation positively influenced patient management.

  19. ON THE IMPORTANCE OF THE PHONEME THEORY FONEM TEORİSİNİN ÖNEMİ HAKKINDA

    Full Text Available Analyzing the structure of language has primarily to do with understanding the sounds that make up language. Saussure’s idea of ‘language is a system of mutually defining entities’ [there is nothing but differences in language] has been the main incentive behind the phoneme theory. The theory in modern terms has been formed especially by Baudouin de Courtenay and linguitsts such as Nikolai Trubetzkoy, Paul Passy, Roman Jakobson, Sergey Karçevski. These scholars made a tremendous contribution to linguistics by setting a system that made possible to differentiate speech sounds and phonemes from all other unprocessed (raw ones. This system laid the foundation of modern phonetic and phonology. This study examines the main features of the phoneme theory that analyzes distinctive features of speech sounds from a systematic approach Dilin yapısını çözümlemek öncelikli olarak dili oluşturan seslerin anlaşılmasıyla ilişkilidir. Ferdinand de Saussure’ün ‘Dilde aykırılıklardan başka bir şey yoktur’ varsayımından yola çıkan dilciler fonem teorisinin ortaya çıkmasını sağlamışlardır. Modern anlamda fonem teorisi, özellikle Rus bilgin Baudouin de Courtenay başta olmak üzere Nikolai Trubetzkoy, Paul Passy, Roman Jakobson, Sergey Karçevski gibi birçok uzmanın çalışmalarıyla şekillenmiştir. Bu bilginler dillerin konuşma seslerini çözümlemeyi mümkün kılan bir sitemi dilbilime kazandırmıştır. Bu sistem modern fonetik ve fonoloji çalışmalarının altyapısını oluşturmuştur. Bu yazıda konuşma seslerine mahsus ayırt edici özelliklerin bilimsel metotlarla tespitine dayanan fonem teorisinin en temel özellikleri ele alınacaktır.

  20. Cogeneration opportunities in the maritime provinces

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    MacPherson, S.W.

    1999-01-01

    With the arrival of natural gas in New Brunswick in November 1999, the province will be faced with new power generation development opportunities in four different categories of power projects. These include industrial self generation (including cogeneration), merchant power plants, power projects to replace aging facilities, and power projects to help meet future environmental needs. New Brunswick's competitive advantage in harnessing the power generation development opportunities lies in the fact that it is close to major electricity markets in Quebec and New England. It also has many available generation sites. The province's many pulp and paper plants with large process steam needs are also ideal candidates for cogeneration. Some of the major competitive advantages of natural gas over coal are its lower operation and maintenance costs, it is thermally more efficient, produces lower emissions to the environment and prices are competitive. One of the suggestions in New Brunswick Power's new restructuring proposal is to unbundle electricity service in the province into generation and transmission and distribution services. Three gas-fired projects have already been proposed for the province. The 284 MW Bayside Power Project at the Courtenay Bay Generating Station is the most advanced

  1. Collaborative Occupational Therapy: Teachers' Impressions of the Partnering for Change (P4C) Model.

    Occupational therapists (OTs) often face barriers when trying to collaborate with teachers in school-based settings. Partnering for change (P4C), a collaborative practice model designed to support children with developmental coordination disorder, could potentially support all students with special needs. Therefore, the aim of this study was to explore how teachers experience OT services delivered using the P4C model to support children with a variety of special needs. P4C was implemented at one elementary school in Courtenay, British Columbia. Eleven teachers participated in two focus groups and a one-on-one interview to gather descriptive, qualitative data. Grounded theory techniques were used for data analysis. Four themes (collaborating in the thick of it all, learning and taking risks, managing limited time and resources, and appreciating responsive OT support) represented teachers' experiences of P4C. Teachers strongly preferred collaborative OT services based on the P4C model. Students with a variety of special needs were supported within their classrooms as teachers learned new strategies from the OT and found ways to embed these strategies into their daily routines.

  2. Literêre genre van die Daniëlverhale

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    M. Nel

    2001-08-01

    Full Text Available Literary genre of the stories in die Book of Daniel The literary genre of the stories in the book of Daniel has acquired a central position in modern research. Most researchers agree that the stories contain material that is older than the visions contained in Daniel 7-12. Corresponding to the narrative of Daniel and his three friends the following can be listed: the biblical stories of Joseph and Esther; the Assyrian story of Ahikar; the stories of Tobit and Judith; Daniel and Susannah; Daniel, Bel and the Snake; and the story in 1 Esdras 3:1-4:63. The issue regarding the genre of these narratives thus should be addressed. The article proposes that the Daniel stories be read as wisdom literature. Furthermore, the different opinions of the following researchers are discussed: W.L. Humphreys, J.J. Collins, R.R. Wilson, P.R. Davies, G.W.E. Nickelsburg, as well as S. Niditch and R. Doran. The conclusion arrived at is that no consensus on the classification of the genre of the stories exists and that the lack of a standardised system in the classification of genre hampers the discussion.

  3. Surfactant-associated bacteria and natural sea slicks in application to satellite oceanography

    The sea surface microlayer (SML) is a vital environmental boundary involved in Earth's biogeochemical processes, such as heat, gas, and momentum exchange at the air-sea interface (Carlson et al. 1988, Cunliffe et al. 2013, Liss and Duce 2005). Under favorable conditions, natural slicks form on the sea surface and are visible in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery due to the damping of Bragg waves by surfactants. Surface-active agents (surfactants) reside in the SML and associated subsurface water (SSW) and are the byproducts of life processes of marine organisms such as phytoplankton, zooplankton, and seaweed (Gade et al. 2013); the focus of this work is bacteria. A new approach to reduce contamination during sample collection, handling, and lab processing has been further expanded upon and implemented in this study (Kurata et al. 2016, Hamilton et al. 2015). Microlayer and subsurface samples have been collected in the Straits of Florida and the Gulf of Mexico during Radarsat-2 and TerraSAR-X overpasses. As part of the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (CARTHE), over 100 samples were collected in the Gulf of Mexico near De Soto Canyon in February 2016. Quantitative PCR (qPCR) analysis of these samples show a wide variability of relative abundance of Bacillus spp., a well-known surfactant-associated bacteria (Satpute et al. 2010), between the SML and SSW. NextGen sequencing (Illuming MiSeq) results will be analyzed to determine exact bacterial community composition of sea surface microlayer and subsurface samples. We plan to expand our observational sites to several locations in the World Ocean.

    Knight, Carl; Albertsen, Andreas

    2015-01-01

    Palliative care serves both as an integrated part of treatment and as a last effort to care for those we cannot cure. The extent to which palliative care should be provided and our reasons for doing so have been curiously overlooked in the debate about distributive justice in health and healthcare....... We argue that one prominent approach, the Rawlsian approach developed by Norman Daniels, is unable to provide such reasons and such care. This is because of a central feature in Daniels' account, namely that care should be provided to restore people's opportunities. Daniels' view is both unable...... to provide pain relief to those who need it as a supplement to treatment and, without justice-based reasons to provide palliative care to those whose opportunities cannot be restored. We conclude that this makes Daniels' framework much less attractive....
