  1. Ezra Pound's Comparative Poetics

    OpenAIRE

    2001-01-01

    In his paper, "Ezra Pound's Comparative Poetics," Naikan Tao concentrates on Pound's theories regarding comparison and examines the significance of his comparative studies to the formulation of his poetics, an aspect that has not been sufficiently investigated. On the basis of Pound's work, Tao observes that the conception of comparison Pound shaped through his comparative studies is the internal principle that governs the presentation of details and particulars, the method Pound advocated as...

  2. Ezra Pound's Rorschach diagnosis.

    Gillman, R D

    1994-01-01

    The 1946 Rorschach protocol of poet Ezra Pound was given blind to three clinical psychologists to see whether interpretations of this historic document would give perspective to the controversy that surrounded his hospital commitment as unfit to stand trial for his treasonous radio broadcasts during World War II. The psychologists found greater psychopathology and defect in Pound's functioning than was generally observed when he was originally tested, and they predicted the psychotic-organic depression that occurred after the poet's discharge 12 years later.

  8. Ezra Pound, «lopista»

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available This article reveals Ezra Pound’s deep, early engagements with the works of Lope de Vega. A young Pound studied Lope de Vega in graduate school and began a doctoral thesis on the gracioso figure in his plays, under the direction of famed lopista Hugo Rennert. But Pound abandoned his dissertation and, instead, translated small parts of Lope de Vega’s works (including a poem from Los pastores de Belén and, more important, used scenes and quotations from Las almenas de Toro to structure the early parts of what would become The Cantos. My focus is on the ways in which these translations and quotations helped Pound discover his governing themes for what are called his «Ur-Cantos» —the first three poems of his Cantos that he published in 1917, before he would revise them heavily and republish them in his first book, A Draft of XVI. Cantos (1925. To understand this, I analyze his chapter on Lope de Vega in his textbook of translations and scholarly commentaries, The Spirit of Romance (1910. Pound ultimately rejects Lope de Vega’s Baroque style, I argue, and stages his rejection across The Cantos, where he dismisses the Baroque as too heavily «ornamental» and not sufficiently suspended across literary time, and thus not the style he will use in developing The Cantos across the remainder of his life.

    2011-11-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Modeling the Calvin-Benson cycle has a history in the field of theoretical biology. Anyone who intends to model this system will look at existing models to adapt, refine and improve them. With the goal to study the regulation of carbon metabolism, we investigated a broad range of relevant models for their suitability to provide the basis for further modeling efforts. Beyond a critical analysis of existing models, we furthermore investigated the question how adjacent metabolic pathways, for instance photorespiration, can be integrated in such models. Results Our analysis reveals serious problems with a range of models that are publicly available and widely used. The problems include the irreproducibility of the published results or significant differences between the equations in the published description of the model and model itself in the supplementary material. In addition to and based on the discussion of existing models, we furthermore analyzed approaches in PGA sink implementation and confirmed a weak relationship between the level of its regulation and efficiency of PGA export, in contrast to significant changes in the content of metabolic pool within the Calvin-Benson cycle. Conclusions In our study we show that the existing models that have been investigated are not suitable for reuse without substantial modifications. We furthermore show that the minor adjacent pathways of the carbon metabolism, neglected in all kinetic models of Calvin-Benson cycle, cannot be substituted without consequences in the mass production dynamics. We further show that photorespiration or at least its first step (O2 fixation has to be implemented in the model if this model is aimed for analyses out of the steady state.

    The 29th President of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, Benson R. Wilcox, MD, died at his home in Fearington Village Center, NC, on May 11, 2010. In 2 weeks, he would have been 78 years old, and the focus of a birthday celebration for his wife, Patsy Davis, his 4 children, Adelaide, Sandra, Melissa, and Reid, 11 grandchildren, and many loved ones. With his death, caused by brain cancer, the University of North Carolina lost one of its most prolific and loyal sons, and the profession of thoracic surgery, one of its wisest leaders. Two facts are certain: Ben will be remembered forever by his students, residents, and colleagues, and our sky is, indeed, Carolina blue.

  16. Ezra Pound's Subject Matter and the Poetic Avant-Garde

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    C. M. Foltz

    2015-10-01

    Full Text Available This paper explores Ezra Pound’s poetics in light of certain American avant-garde poetic schools who claim literary inheritance from him. Specifically, critics in the 1970s to 1990s attempted to redefine Pound’s ars poetica strictly in political terms without acknowledging numerous essays in which he remained apolitical with respect to poetry. In addition to this, Pound’s conception of poetic meter and other theoretical bases are explored. Some of these include Pound’s belief that subject matter is the source of poetic form, and that authorial intention is intimately related to how cultures promote values and a literary tradition. Though Pound is named as a predecessor of American avant-garde-ism, this paper explores how these connections are more tenuous than previously accepted by the academy.

  8. Observaciones gramaticales en el comentario de Abraham Ibn Ezra a Lamentaciones

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ortega Monasterio, Mª Teresa

    2003-12-01

    Full Text Available One of the main concerns of the biblical commentaries of Abraham Ibn Ezra is the study of the Hebrew grammar and its characteristics. There we can find indeed many of the theories he had on the subject. Ibn Ezra includes remarks about the consonants, punctuation, morphology of verbs and nouns, etc., using several expressions which are characteristic of his own style. The present paper aims at analyzing the grammatical aspects of the commentary of Ibn Ezra on Lamentations, and at the same time comparing his theories with those of other Medieval commentators.

    Uno de los principales objetivos de Abraham Ibn Ezra en sus comentarios bíblicos es el estudio de la gramática hebrea y sus características. En sus comentarios podemos encontrar expuestas muchas de sus teorías acerca de este tema. A menudo hace observaciones acerca de las consonantes hebreas, de su vocalización, morfología, de verbos y nombres, etc., utilizando expresiones típicas de su estilo. En el presente trabajo se analizan los aspectos gramaticales del comentario de Ibn Ezra al libro de las Lamentaciones, intentando relacionar sus teorías con las de otros comentaristas medievales.

  9. Ezra Pound’s orientalist poetry, natural rootedness, and Lepidoptera

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    J.E. Terblanche

    2002-08-01

    Full Text Available In this article, we focus on the outward purpose (Umberto Eco and natural rootedness of Ezra Pound’s translation of Li Tai Po’s “The River Merchant’s Wife: a Letter.” Natural rootedness – a sign actively conditioned by and into a dynamic ecosystem – is a central aspect of Taoist poetics and modernist orientalism (Gary Snyder. We follow the outward purpose of the sign, in further exploration of a zone of between-ness: between the opposites of culture and nature (William Howarth. In particular, we focus on the butterfly image in this poem. An interdisciplinary, ecosemiotic reading is made of this image within its poetic and natural context. We argue that this image is related to actual (ecological and evolutionary butterfly colouration and behaviour in the (Chinese ecosystem. Although no historical evidence of either Pound’s or Li Po’s interest in butterflies exists as far as could be determined, the middle ground between English and Chinese that Pound occupies (Eric Hayot in this translation, could partially explain the interlevel correspondence between this image and actual butterfly behaviour. The article demonstrates that the image ties in well with an autumnal orpimentation or “enyellowment” of butterflies, as well as their sexual behaviour. It concludes that the significance of the sign is enhanced by its outward purpose towards and interpenetration with and within active nature, culminating in this central natural image in this important and creative poetic translation by Pound.

  17. Mechanism of regulation of prokaryotic tubulin-like GTPase FtsZ by membrane protein EzrA.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Chung, Kuei-Min; Hsu, Hsin-Hsien; Yeh, Hsin-Yi; Chang, Ban-Yang

    2007-05-18

    At initiation of cell division, FtsZ, a tubulin-like GTPase, assembles into a so-called Z-ring structure at the site of division. The formation of Z ring is negatively regulated by EzrA, which ensures only one ring at the midcell per cell cycle. The mechanism leading to the negative regulation of Z-ring formation by EzrA has been analyzed. Our data reveal that the interaction between EzrA and FtsZ not only reduces the GTP-binding ability of FtsZ but also accelerates the rate of GTP hydrolysis, both of which are unfavorable for the polymerization of FtsZ. Moreover, the acceleration in rate of GTP hydrolysis by EzrA is attributed to stabilization of the transition state for GTP hydrolysis and reduction in the affinity of GDP for FtsZ. Clearly, EzrA is able to modify the GTP hydrolysis cycle of FtsZ. On the basis of these results, a model for how EzrA acts to negatively regulate Z-ring formation is proposed.

    Vangerpen, Jon

    1988-01-01

    This report documents the Benson Diesel Engine Simulation Program and explains how it can be used to predict the performance of diesel engines. The program was obtained from the Garrett Turbine Engine Company but has been extensively modified since. The program is a thermodynamic simulation of the diesel engine cycle which uses a single zone combustion model. It can be used to predict the effect of changes in engine design and operating parameters such as valve timing, speed and boost pressure. The most significan change made to this program is the addition of a more detailed heat transfer model to predict metal part temperatures. This report contains a description of the sub-models used in the Benson program, a description of the input parameters and sample program runs.

    1999-01-01

    The goal of this study is the refinement of the technique of low-frequency fatigue analyses of a Taft joint through computer simulation, in order to obtain, in the shortest time possible, a more precise expression of their longevity. To answer the central query, 'how long does the Taft joint hold?', there exists a series of concomitant questions, around which the study centers: on what kind of Taft joint longevity can one count; how are the Taft joint data dependent on mechanical tension, time, and temperature; which conditions promote the ideal results; what must be taken into account during the cross-linkage of the Taft joint for finite element analysis; which temperature should be chosen in order to re-portray the themocycles in a low-frequency fatigue analysis as realistically as possible; and locating the critical geometric places within the Taft joint.

    The Calvin-Benson cycle (CBC) provides the precursors for biomass synthesis necessary for plant growth. The dynamic behavior and yield of the CBC depend on the environmental conditions and regulation of the cellular state. Accurate quantitative models hold the promise of identifying the key determinants of the tightly regulated CBC function and their effects on the responses in future climates. We provide an integrative analysis of the largest compendium of existing models for photosynthetic processes. Based on the proposed ranking, our framework facilitates the discovery of best-performing models with regard to metabolomics data and of candidates for metabolic engineering.

    2004-01-01

    To support development of the Boeing-Rocketdyne RS84 rocket engine, a full-flow, reaction turbine geometry was integrated into the NASA-MSFC turbine air-flow test facility. A mechanical design was generated which minimized the amount of new hardware while incorporating all test and instrumentation requirements. This paper provides details of the mechanical design for this Turbine Air-Flow Task (TAFT) test rig. The mechanical design process utilized for this task included the following basic stages: Conceptual Design. Preliminary Design. Detailed Design. Baseline of Design (including Configuration Control and Drawing Revision). Fabrication. Assembly. During the design process, many lessons were learned that should benefit future test rig design projects. Of primary importance are well-defined requirements early in the design process, a thorough detailed design package, and effective communication with both the customer and the fabrication contractors.

  8. A Study of Ezra Pound’s Cathay from the Perspective of Rewriting Theory

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    AN Yu-ting

    2016-01-01

    Ezra Pound, not only a prominent poet but also a translator, published Cathay, which is translation of 19 classic Chi-nese poems on the basis of Fenollosa’s notes. Since its publication, it receives warm welcome from western readers but dispute also exists due to some mistranslations. This paper aims to use rewriting theory to evaluate this work from a fresh perspective. Rewriting theory, which was proposed by Andre Lefevere, asserts that ideology, poetics and patronage would exert influence on translation. With analysis of the original work, notes of Fenollosa, it can be concluded that Cathay is under the manipulation of ideology and poetics of Pound’s era. With regard to ideology, The World WarⅠinfluences the subject Pound chose and the meth-ods he used. On the part of poetics, Pound launched Imagism Movement against the dominant Victorian poetics. Direct images, concise language and free verse are embedded in Cathay.

    Euglenids are an ancient lineage that may have existed as early as 2 billion years ago. A mere 65 years ago, Melvin Calvin and Andrew A. Benson performed experiments on Euglena gracilis and elucidated the series of reactions by which carbon was fixed and reduced during photosynthesis. However, the evolutionary history of this pathway (Calvin-Benson cycle) in euglenids was more complex than Calvin and Benson could have imagined. The chloroplast present today in euglenophytes arose from a secondary endosymbiosis between a phagotrophic euglenid and a prasinophyte green alga. A long period of evolutionary time existed before this secondary endosymbiotic event took place, which allowed for other endosymbiotic events or gene transfers to occur prior to the establishment of the green chloroplast. This research revealed the evolutionary history of the major enzymes of the Calvin-Benson cycle throughout the euglenid lineage and showed that the majority of genes for Calvin-Benson cycle enzymes shared an ancestry with red algae and/or chromophytes suggesting they may have been transferred to the nucleus prior to the acquisition of the green chloroplast.

    To support development of the Boeing-Rocketdyne RS84 rocket engine, a fill-flow, reaction turbine geometry was integrated into the NASA-MSFC turbine air-flow test facility. A mechanical design was generated which minimized the amount of new hardware while incorporating all test and instrUmentation requirements. This paper provides details of the mechanical design for this Turbine Air-Flow Task (TAFT) test rig. The mechanical design process utilized for this task included the following basic stages: Conceptual Design. Preliminary Design. Detailed Design. Baseline of Design (including Configuration Control and Drawing Revision). Fabrication. Assembly. During the design process, many lessons were learned that should benefit future test rig design projects. Of primary importance are well-defined requirements early in the design process, a thorough detailed design package, and effective communication with both the customer and the fabrication contractors. The test rig provided steady and unsteady pressure data necessary to validate the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code. The rig also helped characterize the turbine blade loading conditions. Test and CFD analysis results are to be presented in another JANNAF paper.

  11. The glucose 6-phosphate shunt around the Calvin-Benson cycle.

    It is just over 60 years since a cycle for the regeneration of the CO2-acceptor used in photosynthesis was proposed. In this opinion paper, we revisit the origins of the Calvin-Benson cycle that occurred at the time that the hexose monophosphate shunt, now called the pentose phosphate pathway, was being worked out. Eventually the pentose phosphate pathway was separated into two branches, an oxidative branch and a non-oxidative branch. It is generally thought that the Calvin-Benson cycle is the reverse of the non-oxidative branch of the pentose phosphate pathway but we describe crucial differences and also propose that some carbon routinely passes through the oxidative branch of the pentose phosphate pathway. This creates a futile cycle but may help to stabilize photosynthesis. If it occurs it could explain a number of enigmas including the lack of complete labelling of the Calvin-Benson cycle intermediates when carbon isotopes are fed to photosynthesizing leaves.

  12. Binaric structures and female erasure in Ezra Lim’s “Woman”

    2012-10-01

    Full Text Available The upsurge of discourses in Gender and Feminist studies and theories has garnered new levels of consciousness about the place of the woman in contemporary society. The contemporary African society has been greatly impacted by such discourses and this has led to new writings (poetry, fiction and non-fiction that confront hitherto unchallenged definitions and positioning of women. Negative representation of the female gender still continues to surface in contemporary African literary texts by males. This essay explores one of such texts by a Cameroonian poet. It discusses various forms of female erasure by showing how binary structures in Ezra Lim's "Womanhood" function to reveal profound ideas of female marginality. Although the poem like many others in Lim's collection titled Woman (A Collection of Poems has a deeply religious tone and mindset, it also conveys strong undercurrents of anti-female sentiments by continually placing the female in a peripheral position. Lim conveys a certain reality (typical Cameroonian cultural experience from a particular viewpoint that shows women to exist purposely for the good of the men. Lim's religious inclinations play a major role in his definition of the position of the woman in the binary equation.

    Ezra Pound devoted his whole life to introducing Chinese culture to Western world. He believed in Kung’s Confucianism deeply,making it a cure to save Western chaos and spiritual crisis of darkness. In The Can-tos,Pound quoted frequently from classical Confucian works like The Analects and even directly used Chinese characters with profound Confucian thought. After an integrated examination on The Cantos,we see the deep Con-fucian impact on Pound and conclude that these Confucian principles like order,peace and harmony,and the in-ward self-examination and self-improvement of the individual are in fact the consummate embodiment of his liter-ary declaration and political appeal.%庞德一生都致力于向美国人包括欧洲人介绍中国文化,他特别推崇以孔子为代表的儒家之思想,认为儒家思想是拯救混乱、黑暗西方的精神危机的灵丹妙药。庞德的《诗章》引用了诸多《论语》等中国儒学经典的词句,并且很多地方直接使用汉字,蕴含着浓厚的儒家思想。全面考察《诗章》可知儒家思想对庞德的影响之深刻,儒家主张的秩序、和谐和个人的内省修身,是庞德文学主张和精神诉求的集中体现。

    Reversible redox post-translational modifications such as oxido-reduction of disulfide bonds, S-nitrosylation, and S-glutathionylation, play a prominent role in the regulation of cell metabolism and signaling in all organisms. These modifications are mainly controlled by members of the thioredoxin and glutaredoxin families. Early studies in photosynthetic organisms have identified the Calvin-Benson cycle, the photosynthetic pathway responsible for carbon assimilation, as a redox regulated process. Indeed, 4 out of 11 enzymes of the cycle were shown to have a low activity in the dark and to be activated in the light through thioredoxin-dependent reduction of regulatory disulfide bonds. The underlying molecular mechanisms were extensively studied at the biochemical and structural level. Unexpectedly, recent biochemical and proteomic studies have suggested that all enzymes of the cycle and several associated regulatory proteins may undergo redox regulation through multiple redox post-translational modifications including glutathionylation and nitrosylation. The aim of this review is to detail the well-established mechanisms of redox regulation of Calvin-Benson cycle enzymes as well as the most recent reports indicating that this pathway is tightly controlled by multiple interconnected redox post-translational modifications. This redox control is likely allowing fine tuning of the Calvin-Benson cycle required for adaptation to varying environmental conditions, especially during responses to biotic and abiotic stresses.

    Stress is an essential response in highly competitive environments. Before a race, before an exam, before an important meeting, your heart rate and blood pressure rise, your focus tightens, you become more alert and more efficient. But beyond a certain level, stress overloads your system, compromising your performance and, eventually, your health. So the question is: When does stress help and when does it hurt? To find out, HBR talked with Harvard Medical School professor Herbert Benson, M.D., founder of the Mind/Body Medical Institute. Having spent more than 35 years conducting worldwide research in the fields of neuroscience and stress, Benson is best known for his 1975 best seller The Relaxation Response, in which he describes how the mind can influence stress levels through such tools as meditation. His most recent research centers on what he calls"the breakout principle," a method by which stress is not simply reduced but carefully controlled so that you reap its benefits while avoiding its dangers. He describes a four-step process in which you first push yourself to the most productive stress level by grappling intently with a problem. Next, just as you feel yourself flagging, you disengage entirely by doing something utterly unrelated-going for a walk, petting a dog, taking a shower. In the third step, as the brain quiets down, activity paradoxically increases in areas associated with attention, space-time concepts, and decision making, leading to a sudden, creative insight-the breakout. Step four is achievement of a "new-normal state," in which you find that the improved performance is sustained, sometimes indefinitely. As counterintuitive as this research may seem, managers can doubtless recall times when they've had an "aha" moment at the gym, on the golf course, or in the shower. What Benson describes here is a way to tap into this invaluable biological tool whenever we want.

    Nursing staffs expose to a high level of anxiety. This study aimed to compare the effect of Benson's relaxation and systematic desensitization methods for decreasing the anxiety score of nurses. In a randomized clinical trial, 72 female nurses were assigned randomly to three different groups. Benson's relaxation and systematic desensitization were used as intervention beside control group. After intervention, the Spielberger state-trait anxiety inventory was used for measuring the anxiety score. Analysis of variance (ANOVA), Tukey test, and paired t-test were applied for comparing three group scores. The ANOVA test showed that a significant difference among three groups regarding scores of posttrait and poststate anxiety (P < 0.05). The Tukey test showed that both Benson's relaxation and systematic desensitization methods were effective in decreasing of the anxiety score of nurses. Moreover, the mean change in trait and state anxiety scores at Benson's relaxation and systematic desensitization groups was more than control group, respectively, and was statistically significant. Both Benson's relaxation and systematic desensitization methods are effective in improvement of the state and trait dimensions of anxiety. However, these methods could be applied in stressful situation among medical staffs of students.

    Post-cesarean section women experience pain due to operative trauma. Pain sensation can be reduced by pain management. Pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments can be used. The Benson Relaxation Technique is a non-pharmacological way suitable to reduce pain, but there are limited studies on its post-cesarean section use. This study aimed to determine the effect of Benson Relaxation Technique in reducing pain intensity in women after cesarean section. This was a quasi-experiment study with pre and post-test design. A prospective, not blind, randomized assign, two groups parallel study was conducted in Cibabat hospital Cimahi as intervention group (IG) and Sartika Asih hospital as control group (CG). Post cesarean section women with quota sampling who met the inclusion criteria were consecutively assigned to either experimental (n = 30) or control group (n = 30). Women in the experimental group received the Benson relaxation technique and those in the control group received regular care from the health workers. The outcome pain severity was measured by visual analogue scale. Those instruments were applied before and after intervention. The mean of pain score before intervention at CG was 4.43 cm. It was decreased to 4.40 cm (1 min), 4.27 cm (12 h), 4.10 cm (24 h), 4.00 cm (36 h), 3.93 cm (48 h), 3.83 cm (60 h), 3.67 cm (72 h) and 3.51 cm (84 h). Meanwhile, the IG was 4.97 cm. It was decreased to 4.90 cm (1 min), 4.23 cm (12 h), 3.57 cm (24 h), 3.03 cm (36 h), 2.77 cm (48 h), 2.73 cm (60 h), 2.67 cm (72 h) and 2.63 cm (84 h). The study found a significant difference comparing pain intensity before and after the intervention in CG and IG (P = 0.001), but pain reduced in IG more than CG. The Benson relaxation could reduce pain intensity in women after cesarean section.

    Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) and phosphoribulokinase (PRK) are two energy-consuming enzymes of the Calvin-Benson cycle, whose regulation is crucial for the global balance of the photosynthetic process under different environmental conditions. In oxygen phototrophs, GAPDH and PRK regulation involves the redox-sensitive protein CP12. In the dark, oxidized chloroplast thioredoxins trigger the formation of a GAPDH/CP12/PRK complex in which both enzyme activities are down-regulated. In this report, we show that free GAPDH (A4-isoform) and PRK are also inhibited by oxidants like H2O2, GSSG and GSNO. Both in the land plant Arabidopsis thaliana and in the green microalga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, both enzymes can be glutathionylated as shown by biotinylated-GSSG assay and MALDI-ToF mass spectrometry. CP12 is not glutathionylated but homodisulfides are formed upon oxidant treatments. In Arabidopsis but not in Chlamydomonas, the interaction between oxidized CP12 and GAPDH provides full protection from oxidative damage. In both organisms, preformed GAPDH/CP12/PRK complexes are protected from GSSG or GSNO oxidation, and in Arabidopsis also from H2O2 treatment. Overall, the results suggest that the role of CP12 in oxygen phototrophs needs to be extended beyond light/dark regulation, and include protection of enzymes belonging to Calvin-Benson cycle from oxidative stress.

    The morphology and classification of etch pits in molecular beam epitaxy-grown (211) HgCdTe/CdTe/Si layers were investigated using the Schaake and Benson etch pit density (EPD) etches. The two EPD etches were compared and shown to have a 1:1 correlation in the etch pits that were produced. Close examination of the shape of the etch pits via scanning electron microscopy shows that several distinguishable classifications of etch pits are revealed using both etches. Samples subjected to thermal cycle annealing (TCA) treatment show a nonuniform reduction in etch pit populations according to the classification defined in this study. In particular, a class of etch pits called "fish shaped" are completely absent after TCA and can account for up to one-third of the total reduction in EPD.

    Full Text Available Abstract : Belief in a Supreme Being is an idea that virtually all cultures of the world subscribe to. However, different interpretation could be deduced from the subscription of each culture. The Yoruba, for example, in Nigeria, is not an exception to this. Olodumare the Yoruba word for Supreme Being has attracted comments, interpretations and misinterpretations from different scholars of both Yoruba and non-Yoruba extractions.  E. Bolaji Idowu, John Ayotunde Bewaji, Kazeem Ademola Fayemi, Kola Abimbola analyses manifest some seemingly contradictions upon which was hinged by Benson O. Igboin, in his paper “Is Olodumare, God in Yoruba Belief, God?” From their explanation, Igboin demand for the true nature of Olodumare having conceded that Olodumare and the Christian God are not and cannot be the same. Specifically, Igboin asked Olodumare, who are you? This paper, therefore, aims at providing an insight to the real nature of Olodumare in Yoruba worldview. It argues that God is nothing other than the English meaning or interpretation of the Supreme Being. The paper posits that Igboin’s pairs of Esu and Olodumare of which one is true and faithful to Yoruba traditional Religion and the other true and faithful to Christianity in Yoruba land does not hold water. Using analytical method of philosophical inquiry, the paper concludes that Olodumare in Yoruba traditional Religion cannot be equated with the concept of God as conceived in Christianity neither could it be bifurcated. He is sufficiently a Supreme Being in Yoruba theology. Key words : Supreme Being, Olodumare, Yoruba, Esu, Benson O.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Massimo Bacigalupo

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available Abstract - Ezra Pound’s Cantos, a Modernist classic, present many challenges for the translator, who has to follow in Pound’s footsteps and often divine the intention and context of the fragments that compose his historic and lyric collage. A new Italian translation of the first extensive installment of the poem, XXX Cantos (1930, appeared in 2012; a previous Italian rendering of the same work, by the poet’s daughter Mary de Rachewiltz, was published in 1961. By comparing representative excerpts of the two translations, this paper discusses different approaches to one source text. While the 1961 target text aimed at concision at the expense of fluency, the 2012 text employs a more colloquial style, attempting to make an arduous and complex work more reader-friendly. However, the two translations adopt the same strategy when rendering the many passages Pound paraphrased from medieval and renaissance Italian writings. Rather than retranslating Pound’s English, they print excerpts from the Italian originals he worked from, with their quaint spellings and often obscure wording. Just as Pound asks his readers and translators to work with him on the texts he presents in the poem, so the translators presuppose a reader who is also a collaborator, and who will be intrigued by the old documents appearing opposite Pound’s modernist paraphrases. Translation is always a work in progress, but this is particularly the case when approaching the uniquely intricate and collaborative project of Pound’s Cantos. Riassunto - XXX Cantos (1930 di Ezra Pound, un classico del modernismo anglo-americano, è  stato tradotto in italiano nel 1961 dalla figlia del poeta, Mary de Rachewiltz, con risultati assai notevoli e curiosi, data la sua lunga collaborazione col padre.

    埃兹拉·庞德与儒学的不解情缘可以用“一以贯之”来形容,它经历了三个阶段:知遇之感、信仰之重、重生之恩。庞德对儒学的痴迷,使他成为一位真正的“儒生”,并使其在西方视域下建构了庞氏儒学。庞德与儒学的不解情缘贯穿于他多舛的一生,他追求礼乐仁和的政治理想,将儒学作为医治西方社会道德危机、心灵腐朽的良药,因此他发出西方社会“亟需孔子”的诉求。%Ezra Pound’s involvement with Confucianism can be phased into three stages:his early appreciation of Confucianism, his strong belief in Confucianism, and his eternal gratitude to Confucius for saving his life. Pound is a real Confucian disciple and he has established his own Confucianism in the West. Pound’s adoration for Confucianism runs through his unsmooth life. He pursues the political ideals of LiYueRenHeand considers Confucianism as an effective medicine to cure Western diseases. Therefore, he calls out “Immediate need for Confucius” in the West. To study Pound’s involvement with Confucianism contributes to the study of Pound’s Confucianism and also conduces to the return of Confucian traditions in modern China.

    To understand how the machinery for photosynthetic carbon assimilation is formed and maintained during leaf development, changes in the mRNA levels of the Calvin-Benson cycle enzymes, ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) activase and two key enzymes for sucrose synthesis were determined in rice (Oryza sativa L.). According to the patterns of changes in the mRNA levels, these genes were categorized into three groups. Group 1 included most of the genes involved in the carboxylation and reduction phases of the Calvin-Benson cycle, as well as three genes in the regeneration phase. The mRNA levels increased and reached maxima during leaf expansion and then rapidly declined, although there were some variations in the residual mRNA levels in senescent leaves. Group 2 included a number of genes involved in the regeneration phase, one gene in the reduction phase of the Calvin-Benson cycle and one gene in sucrose synthesis. The mRNA levels increased and almost reached maxima before full expansion and then gradually declined. Group 3 included Rubisco activase, one gene involved in the regeneration phase and one gene in sucrose synthesis. The overall pattern was similar to that in group 2 genes except that the mRNA levels reached maxima after the stage of full expansion. Thus, genes of the Calvin-Benson cycle and its related genes were differentially expressed during leaf development in rice, suggesting that such differential gene expression is necessary for formation and maintenance of the machinery of photosynthetic carbon assimilation.

    A kind of tangent derivative and the concepts of strong and weak *pseudoconvexity for a set-valued map are introduced. By the standard separation theorems ofthe convex sets and cones the optimality Fritz John condition of set-valued optimization underBenson proper efficiency is established, its sufficience is discussed. The form of theoptimality conditions obtained here completely tally with the classical results when the set-valued map is specialized to be a single-valued map.

    This study was performed to evaluate the effectiveness of Benson's relaxation technique in the quality of sleep of hemodialysis patients. It was a randomized controlled trial with a pre-post-test design. A total of 86 hemodialysis patients referring to hemodialysis units were assigned to either the intervention (receiving Benson's relaxation technique) or the control group (routine care) through block randomization. The study was performed in two hemodialysis units affiliated to Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran. The patients in the intervention group listened to the audiotape of Benson's relaxation technique twice a day each time for twenty minutes for eight weeks. The global score of Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) as well as its components was computed in both the intervention and the control group before and at the 8th week of the intervention. The results of ANCOVA indicated significant differences between the two groups regarding the scores of Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index subscales, such as sleep disturbance, daytime dysfunction, the use of sleep medication, and subjective sleep quality and as well as its global scores at the 8th week of the intervention (prelaxation technique in improvement of the sleep quality of the patients on hemodialysis. Thus, educational sessions are recommended to be planned on this cost effective and easy to use relaxation technique in order to improve hemodialysis patients' sleep quality. Further studies are needed to assess the effectiveness of this technique in other groups of patients. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

  2. Discovery of causal mechanisms: Oxidative phosphorylation and the Calvin-Benson cycle.

    Scholl, Raphael; Nickelsen, Kärin

    2015-06-01

    We investigate the context of discovery of two significant achievements of twentieth century biochemistry: the chemiosmotic mechanism of oxidative phosphorylation (proposed in 1961 by Peter Mitchell) and the dark reaction of photosynthesis (elucidated from 1946 to 1954 by Melvin Calvin and Andrew A. Benson). The pursuit of these problems involved discovery strategies such as the transfer, recombination and reversal of previous causal and mechanistic knowledge in biochemistry. We study the operation and scope of these strategies by careful historical analysis, reaching a number of systematic conclusions: (1) even basic strategies can illuminate "hard cases" of scientific discovery that go far beyond simple extrapolation or analogy; (2) the causal-mechanistic approach to discovery permits a middle course between the extremes of a completely substrate-neutral and a completely domain-specific view of scientific discovery; (3) the existing literature on mechanism discovery underemphasizes the role of combinatorial approaches in defining and exploring search spaces of possible problem solutions; (4) there is a subtle interplay between a fine-grained mechanistic and a more coarse-grained causal level of analysis, and both are needed to make discovery processes intelligible.

    Phosphoribulokinase (PRK) in the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a finely regulated and well-studied enzyme of the Benson-Calvin cycle. PRK can form a complex with glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) and the small chloroplast protein CP12. This study aimed to determine the molecular determinants on PRK involved in the complex and the mechanism of action of a recently described novel regulation of PRK that involves glutathionylation. A combination of mass spectrometry, mutagenesis and activity analyses showed that Cys16, besides its role as the binding site of ATP, was also the site for S-glutathionylation. Previous kinetic analysis of the C55S mutant showed that in the oxidized inactive form of PRK, this residue formed a disulfide bridge with the Cys16 residue. This is the only bridge reported for PRK in the literature. Our data show for the first time that a disulfide bridge between Cys243 and Cys249 on PRK is required to form the PRK-GAPDH-CP12 complex. These results uncover a new mechanism for the PRK-GAPDH-CP12 formation involving a thiol disulfide exchange reaction with CP12 and identify Cys16 of PRK as a target of glutathionylation acting against oxidative stress. Although Cys16 is the key residue involved in binding ATP and acting as a defense against oxidative damage, the formation of the algal ternary complex requires the formation of another disulfide bridge on PRK involving Cys243 and Cys249.

  5. Poetry of Life / Poetry of Instruction: poems by Andrzej Sosnowski in the Context of Ezra Pound’s Theory of Poetry

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Wit Pietrzak

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available In the present article Andrzej Sosnowski’s poems is analysed against the theoretical principles elaborated by Ezra Pound. Pound’s postulates such as the ideogrammic method and the melo-, fano-, and logopoeia, all of which are briefly discussed, are used to characterise Sosnowski’s poetic practice. The article shows that, irreducible differences notwithstanding, both poets write in accordance with a set of similar principles. The difference between Sosnowski’s poems and Pound’s Cantos consists mainly in the fact that the former gives up on the inherently Poundian desire to reorganise reality in an epic work and seeks what may be termed a scene of voice on which one’s ownmost identity can be manifested. It is among the many discourses that comprise poems that a voice of life sounds in all its complexity and fragility.

    Kamlet-Taft solvatochromic parameters (polarity, basicity, acidity) of hydrogen bond donor (HBD)/acceptor (HBA) mixed-solvent systems, water (H2O)-γ-valerolactone (GVL), methanol (MeOH)-GVL, ethanol (EtOH)-GVL, H2O-γ-butyrolactone (GBL), MeOH-GBL, and EtOH-GBL, were measured over their entire composition region at 25 °C using UV-vis spectroscopy. Basicity of H2O-GVL and H2O-GBL systems exhibited positive deviation from ideality and synergism in the Kamlet-Taft basicity values. The cybotactic region around each indicator in the mixed-solvent systems was analyzed with the preferential solvation model. Both H2O-GVL and H2O-GBL mixed-solvent systems were found to be completely saturated with mutual complex molecules and to have higher basicity than pure water because water prefers to interact with GVL or GBL molecules rather than with itself. Formation of H2O-GVL and H2O-GBL complex molecules via specific hydrogen bond donor-acceptor interactions were confirmed by infrared spectroscopy. In MeOH-GVL or MeOH-GBL mixed-solvent systems, MeOH molecules prefer self-interaction over that with GVL or GBL so that synergistic basicity was not observed. Synergistic basicity and basicity increase for various functional groups of ten mixed-solvent (water-HBA solvent) systems can be quantitatively explained by considering electrostatic basicity and a ratio of the partial excess HBA solvent basicity with the HBA solvent molar volume that correlate linearly with the preferential solvation model complex molecular parameter (f12/1). Analysis of the cybotactic region of indicators in aqueous mixtures with the preferential solvation model allows one to estimate the trends of mixed-solvent basicity.

    Under the influence of C. H. Douglas's Social Credit, Ezra Pound became enthusiastic about economics. The economic and political themes are obviously presented in his Cantos. In these cantos Pound probes into the causes of wars and the economic crisis and questions the nature of money and value through his presentation of the economists past and present and through the employment of the contrastive structure and anecdotes. Showing a strong sense of humanism, Pound's Cantos speaks out a more balanced aesthetics that contains both the moments frozen in time and temporal changes through history.%在道格拉斯信用论的影响下,庞德对经济产生了浓厚的兴趣,1920—1940年创作的《诗章》表现出明显的经济和政治主题。庞德通过经济主题人物、对立结构、轶事和闲聊等艺术手法探究战争、经济危机产生的根源,追问货币、价值的本质,超越了早期静态的意象主义和间接的人物面具等表现手法,以更加平衡的美学方式表现出凝固的瞬间和历史变化的有机结合,体现出诗人炽烈的人文关怀精神。

  17. Light in the Poetry of Modernists. ŚWIATŁOWSTĄPIENIE by Tymoteusz Karpowicz and the Fragments of The Pisan Cantos by Ezra Pound

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Karolina Górniak

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this article was to present a comparative interpretation of the selected poems by Tymoteusz Karpowicz (the poem alfaŚWIATŁOWSTĄPIENIE and a few accompanying poems and Ezra Pound (The Cantos: LXXX, LXXXI and LXXXIII. The texts have been selected because of the theme of light, sun and visual perception. The comparative method is supposed to show 20th-century Polish poetry in the context of Anglo-American modernism. The relationship between the two poets seems to be hypothetical and one-sided. It has not been established so far whether the writings of Karpowicz were inspired by Pound’s texts. Thus, the article realized a model of contactless, comparative literary study, where comparisons are made on the basis of a typologic relationship. The first part of the article presented the theme of light in some non-poetic texts by Karpowicz and Pound and in their conception of art. The next two parts focus on the interpretation of poetry. The last chapter contained the conclusions drawn from the comparative analysis of chosen texts. The motif of light became not only a link between the selected poems, but also a reason for the comparison of the poetical techniques, specificity of style and the functions of linguistic experiments. The philosophical, Biblical, literary and even scientific contexts were evoked. A theoretical background was represented by the notion of reading/interpretation by Wolfgang Iser, transtextuality by Gérard Genette and the category of a model reader by Umberto Eco. The literary projects of Karpowicz and Pound impel readers to consider several issues. The most significant are: the limits of interpretation, obscurity or inexplicability of modern poetry and the problems of literary communication.

    Haemodialysis patients may suffer from pain and impairment of quality of life. Some complementary interventions, such as relaxation therapy, might affect the pain and quality of life. The present study aimed to identify the effectiveness of Benson's relaxation technique in relieving pain and improving the quality of life in haemodialysis patients. The study was a randomized controlled trial. The data were collected in two haemodialysis units affiliated to Shiraz University of Medical Sciences. A total of 86 haemodialysis patients were randomly assigned to either the intervention (receiving Benson's relaxation technique) or the control group (routine care) from 2011 to 2012. The patients in the intervention groups listened to the audiotape of relaxation technique twice a day each time for 20min for eight weeks. The pain numeric rating scale and Ferrans and Powers Quality of Life Index-dialysis version questionnaire were completed at baseline and 8 weeks after the intervention. The data were analyzed using independent t-test and ANCOVA. The results of ANCOVA showed a significant difference between the intervention and the control group concerning the mean score of the intensity of pain (F=6.03, p=0.01). Moreover, a significant difference was found between the intervention and the control group regarding the total quality of life (F=10.20, p=0.002) and health-functioning (F=8.64, p=0.004), socioeconomic (F=12.45, p=0.001), and family (F=8.52, p=0.005) subscales of quality of life. These findings indicated that Benson's relaxation technique might relieve the intensity of pain and improve the quality of life in haemodialysis patients. Thus, Benson's relaxation technique could be used as part of the care practice for relieving the pain intensity and improvement of the quality of life in haemodialysis patients.

    Genome data of the extreme acidophilic verrucomicrobial methanotroph Methylacidiphilum fumariolicumstrain SolV indicated the ability of autotrophic growth. This was further validated by transcriptome analysis, which showed that all genes required for a functional Calvin-Benson-Bassham (CBB) cycle were transcribed. Experiments with (13)CH(4) or (13)CO(2) in batch and chemostat cultures demonstrated that CO(2) is the sole carbon source for growth of strain SolV. In the presence of CH(4), CO(2) concentrations in the headspace below 1% (vol/vol) were growth limiting, and no growth was observed when CO(2)concentrations were below 0.3% (vol/vol). The activity of the key enzyme of the CBB cycle, ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO), measured with a (13)C stable-isotope method was about 70 nmol CO(2) fixed · min(-1)· mg of protein(-1). An immune reaction with antibody against the large subunit of RuBisCO on Western blots was found only in the supernatant fractions of cell extracts. The apparent native mass of the RuBisCO complex in strain SolV was about 482 kDa, probably consisting of 8 large (53-kDa) and 8 small (16-kDa) subunits. Based on phylogenetic analysis of the corresponding RuBisCO gene, we postulate that RuBisCO of the verrucomicrobial methanotrophs represents a new type of form I RuBisCO.

As an interesting application of the results, the connectednesses of the Benson proper efficient set and the Benson proper efficient solution set for the vector top-base optimization of set-valued maps are obtained.

    Full Text Available It is generally accepted that historically Africa experienced colonialism. Thus, in the neocolonial age articulated by the likes of Sugirtharajah, Segovia and Nkrumah, most African countries are faced with the challenge of power struggle in which imperialism and dictatorship inhibits the development of the Two-Thirds world countries. This challenge, it is argued, reveals an imperialistic tendency of the European Union, China and African government(s to alter democracy and freedom. As such, the Zimbabwe context, amongst others, will be used as a main point of reference. This article examines the elements of imperialism in African states in the light of Persian hegemonic power in the books of Deuteronomy and Ezra-Nehemiah. It investigates whether or not the Jews were free under the Persian hegemonic influence in the post-exilic period. The comparison of the influence of Persian hegemony in the books of Deuteronomy and Ezra-Nehemiah with the evidence of imperialism in African government(s, leads to the argument that certain African states do not appear to be completely democratic and free.Intradisciplinary and interdisciplinary implications: Based on aspects of Old Testament and political science studies, this article explores traces of imperialism in African governments in the light of Persian hegemonic power in the Hebrew Bible. In the end, the article argues that certain African states, for instance Zimbabwe, should not be considered as completely democratic and free nations.

    Methane is an important greenhouse gas and the most abundant hydrocarbon in the Earth's atmosphere. Methanotrophic microorganisms can use methane as their sole energy source and play a crucial role in the mitigation of methane emissions in the environment. "Candidatus Methylomirabilis oxyfera" is a recently described intra-aerobic methanotroph that is assumed to use nitric oxide to generate internal oxygen to oxidize methane via the conventional aerobic pathway, including the monooxygenase reaction. Previous genome analysis has suggested that, like the verrucomicrobial methanotrophs, "Ca. Methylomirabilis oxyfera" encodes and transcribes genes for the Calvin-Benson-Bassham (CBB) cycle for carbon assimilation. Here we provide multiple independent lines of evidence for autotrophic carbon dioxide fixation by "Ca. Methylomirabilis oxyfera" via the CBB cycle. The activity of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RubisCO), a key enzyme of the CBB cycle, in cell extracts from an "Ca. Methylomirabilis oxyfera" enrichment culture was shown to account for up to 10% of the total methane oxidation activity. Labeling studies with whole cells in batch incubations supplied with either (13)CH4 or [(13)C]bicarbonate revealed that "Ca. Methylomirabilis oxyfera" biomass and lipids became significantly more enriched in (13)C after incubation with (13)C-labeled bicarbonate (and unlabeled methane) than after incubation with (13)C-labeled methane (and unlabeled bicarbonate), providing evidence for autotrophic carbon dioxide fixation. Besides this experimental approach, detailed genomic and transcriptomic analysis demonstrated an operational CBB cycle in "Ca. Methylomirabilis oxyfera." Altogether, these results show that the CBB cycle is active and plays a major role in carbon assimilation by "Ca. Methylomirabilis oxyfera" bacteria. Our results suggest that autotrophy might be more widespread among methanotrophs than was previously assumed and implies that a methanotrophic

    In this paper, for vector optimization problems (VP) with the objective function and constraint function are set valued maps, the concepts of approximate Benson properly efficient solutions and approximate Benson properly efficient element are introduced, which extend ε- properly efficient solution introduced by Rong Weidong and Ma Yi, and an example is given to illustrate it. Then approximate Benson properly efficient solutions of vector optimization with set-valued maps are considered. Under the assumption of nearly cone subconvexlikeness, we obtain the conclusions about the approximate solutions of vector optimization problems through associated scalar optimization problems:(x0,y0) is approximate Benson properly efficient element of problem (VP) if and only if it is -εσ-c (μ) -suboptimal element for the scalar problem (Pμ) corresponds to (VP).

    To date, a small number of major flowering time loci have been identified in the related Triticeae crops, bread wheat (Triticum aestivum), durum wheat (T. durum), and barley (Hordeum vulgare). Natural genetic variants at these loci result in major phenotypic changes which have adapted crops to the novel environments encountered during the spread of agriculture. The polyploid nature of bread and durum wheat means that major flowering time loci in which recessive alleles confer adaptive advantage in related diploid species have not been readily identified. One such example is the PPD-H2 flowering time locus encoded by FLOWERING LOCUS T 3 (HvFT3) in the diploid crop barley, for which recessive mutant alleles confer delayed flowering under short day (SD) photoperiods. In autumn-sown barley, such alleles aid the repression of flowering over the winter, which help prevent the development of cold-sensitive floral organs until the onset of inductive long day (LD) photoperiods the following spring. While the identification of orthologous loci in wheat could provide breeders with alternative mechanisms to fine tune flowering time, systematic identification of wheat orthologs of HvFT3 has not been reported. Here, we characterize the FT gene families in six Poaceae species, identifying novel members in all taxa investigated, as well as FT3 homoeologs from the A, B and D genomes of hexaploid (TaFT3) and tetraploid wheat. Sequence analysis shows TaFT3 homoeologs display high similarity to the HvFT3 coding region (95–96%) and predicted protein (96–97%), with conservation of intron/exon structure across the five cereal species investigated. Genetic mapping and comparative analyses in hexaploid and tetraploid wheat find TaFT3 homoeologs map to the long arms of the group 1 chromosomes, collinear to HvFT3 in barley and FT3 orthologs in rice, foxtail millet and brachypodium. Genome-specific expression analyses show FT3 homoeologs in tetraploid and hexaploid wheat are upregulated

    Autotrophic fixation of carbon dioxide into cellular carbon occurs via several pathways but quantitatively, the Calvin-Benson-Bassham cycle is the most important. CbbR regulates the expression of the cbb genes involved in CO2 fixation via the Calvin-Benson-Bassham cycle in a number of autotrophic bacteria. A gene potentially encoding CbbR (cbbR(AF)) has been predicted in the genome of the chemolithoautotrophic, extreme acidophile Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans. However, this microorganism is recalcitrant to genetic manipulation impeding the experimental validation of bioinformatic predictions. Two novel functional assays were devised to advance our understanding of cbbR(AF) function using the mutated facultative autotroph Ralstonia eutropha H14 ΔcbbR as a surrogate host to test gene function: (i) cbbR(AF) was expressed in R. eutropha and was able to complement ΔcbbR; and (ii) CbbR(AF) was able to regulate the in vivo activity of four A. ferrooxidans cbb operon promoters in R. eutropha. These results open up the use of R. eutropha as a surrogate host to explore cbbR(AF) activity.

    2011-02-01

    Rhodobacter sphaeroides ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RubisCO)-deletion strain 16 was capable of photoheterotrophic growth with acetate, while Rhodopseudomonas palustris RubisCO-deletion strain 2040 could not grow under these conditions. The reason for this difference lies in the fact that Rba. sphaeroides and Rps. palustris use different pathways for acetate assimilation, the ethylmalonyl-CoA pathway, and glyoxylate-bypass cycle, respectively. The ethylmalonyl-CoA pathway is distinct from the glyoxylate cycle as one molecule of CO(2) and one molecule of HCO(3) (-) per three molecules of acetyl-CoA are co-assimilated to form two malate molecules. The glyoxylate cycle directly converts two acetyl-CoA molecules to malate. Each pathway, therefore, also dictates at what point, CO(2) and reductant are consumed, thereby determining the requirement for the Calvin-Benson-Bassham reductive pentose phosphate cycle.

    Pound’s rewriting theory originated from Manipulative school forerunner Lefevere. He holds that translation is to re⁃write the source text. The theory breaks the faithfulness to the source text .This thesis studies the rewriting theory through com⁃paring the Chinese poetry and the translation works of Ezra Pound. Finally, the ideology and poetics are the main factors affecting Pound’s rewriting theory.%  庞德的改写理论最早是起源于操纵派理论旗手勒菲弗尔的改写理论。该理论认为,翻译是对原文本进行改写,打破了对原文的绝对忠实。而这篇文章通过对比古诗和庞德的译诗来研究庞德的改写理论,最后发现意识形态和诗学才是影响庞德改写理论的两大主要因素。

    As an indispensable part of Ezra Pound' s ideology, Confucianism certainly played an important role in his Politics and Economics. However, scholars from east and west mostly focused their study on either Pound' s Confucianism or Pound' s Polities and Economics, as a result of the huge cultural difference. In view of this, this thesis attempted to explore the influence of Confucianism on Pound' s Politics and Economies.%儒家思想作为庞德思想体系的重要组成部分,对庞德政治经济思想的形成和完善起了重要的作用。然而,由于文化差异等原因,中西方的庞德研究者长期以来一直都仅仅侧重于研究其中的一面。鉴于此,试图从政治和经济两个方面来探讨儒家思想对庞德政治经济思想的影响。

  13. From CO2 to cell: energetic expense of creating biomass using the Calvin-Benson-Bassham and reductive citric acid cycles based on genome data.

    2016-04-01

    The factors driving the dominance of the Calvin-Benson-Bassham cycle (CBB) or reductive citric acid cycle (rCAC) in autotrophic microorganisms in different habitats are debated. Based on costs for synthesizing a few metabolic intermediates, it has been suggested that the CBB poses a disadvantage due to higher metabolic cost. The purpose of this study was to extend this estimate of cost from metabolite synthesis to biomass synthesis. For 12 gammaproteobacteria (CBB) and five epsilonproteobacteria (rCAC), the amount of ATP to synthesize a gram of biomass from CO2 was calculated from genome sequences via metabolic maps. The eleven central carbon metabolites needed to synthesize biomass were all less expensive to synthesize via the rCAC (66%-89% of the ATP needed to synthesize them via CBB). Differences in cell compositions did result in differing demands for metabolites among the organisms, but the differences in cost to synthesize biomass were small among organisms that used a particular pathway (e.g. rCAC), compared to the difference between pathways (rCAC versus CBB). The rCAC autotrophs averaged 0.195 moles ATP per g biomass, while their CBB counterparts averaged 0.238. This is the first in silico estimate of the relative expense of both pathways to generate biomass. © FEMS 2016. All rights reserved. For permissions, please e-mail: journals.permissions@oup.com.

    Chronic diseases leave a significant effect on not only the afflicted children but also their parents. Chronic diseases in children may also influence their parents' or primary caregivers' quality of life (QoL). To determine the effectiveness of a Brief Psycho-educational Intervention (BPI) and Benson's Relaxation Technique (BRT) on the QoL of primary caregivers of children with chronic diseases. The present quasi-experimental pre-test post-test design was conducted on 100 parents with children who had one chronic disease (50 in each of the control and intervention groups) and were admitted to two state-run pediatric hospitals in Tehran, Iran in 2014. The primary caregivers' QoL was assessed using the SF-36 questionnaire before (T1) and four weeks after the intervention (T2). The training was done in four 60-70minute sessions over one week with a 4-week follow-up. Paired t-test, independent t-test, chi-square and Fisher's exact tests were used to analyze the data. On average, large effect sizes (ES≥0.80) were observed after interventions in SF-36 subscales that measured the effect of emotional roles. Small (0.20-0.49) to moderate (0.50-0.79) ESs were found in subscales measuring physical functioning, physical-role, bodily pain, vitality, social functioning and mental health. General health scores remained relatively unchanged at T2. These results suggested that BPI and BRT were effective strategies to improve the QoL of primary caregivers. Furthermore, interventions with low cost, and good safety and outcome could improve the QoL of primary caregivers of children with chronic diseases. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier Inc.

    Highlights: ► Measured H{sub m}{sup E} and V{sub m}{sup E} data of formamide + propanol were interpreted in terms of PFP theory. ► Treszczanowicz–Benson association model was also applied to these binary systems. ► The calculated H{sub m}{sup E} and V{sub m}{sup E} values compared well with corresponding experimental data. ► Extent of H-bonding in formamide and propanol in their mixture was reflected in Δh{sub H}{sup 0} and K{sub H}. - Abstract: Excess molar enthalpies (H{sub m}{sup E}) at 298.15 K and 308.15 K and excess molar volumes (V{sub m}{sup E}) at 308.15 K for formamide (1) + 1-propanol or 2-propanol (2) mixtures have been measured over the entire composition range. The excess enthalpies and excess volumes data have been utilized to study the thermodynamics of molecular interactions in terms of Prigogine–Flory–Patterson theory and Treszczanowicz–Benson association model with a Flory contribution term. In this paper, this Treszczanowicz–Benson association model was applied, for the first time, to binary mixtures containing both components associated (propanol and formamide) through hydrogen bonding. In both the cases, when either of formamide or propanol was assumed to be associated, the calculated H{sub m}{sup E} and V{sub m}{sup E} values compared well with corresponding experimental data. Extent of inter-molecular H-bonding in formamide and propanol in their binary mixtures was also reflected in their molar enthalpy of association of H-bonding Δh{sub H}{sup 0} and association constant K{sub H}.

    美国国会于1947年通过的《塔夫脱—哈特莱法》是在冷战大背景下提出的,它既有深刻的经济原因,也是冷战期间一部典型的具有浓烈反共意识形态色彩的反劳工立法。该法修订了1935年保护劳工利益的《瓦格纳法》,维护了大企业主和统治集团的既得利益,以反共为由侵犯了工人组织罢工、集体谈判等政治和经济权利,导致工会内部分裂,工人力量削弱,造成严重后果。美国工人和工会对此做出了坚决回应,强烈抗议法案的通过,彰显了美国工人阶级的反抗精神。%It was against the background of Cold War that the U.S.Congress introduced Taft-Hartley Bill.This was a typical anti-labour act with deep-set anti-communist ideology.The bill revised the 1935 Wagner Bill aiming to protect labour interests by adding articles to defend the existing interests of heads of big enterprises and ruling groups,causing grave causes and results.For instance,it,in an anti-communist disguise,violated the workers' political and economic rights to organize strikes and hold collective talks,directly leading to internal separation of trade unions and weakening of worker force.In response to the situation,American workers and trade unions made a determined reaction,delivering strong protests against the introduction of the bill,which gave expression to the resisting spirit of American working class.

    美国著名诗人埃兹拉.庞德在诗学和诗艺的持续嬗变中,从日本能剧中汲取了诗歌创作的灵感。能剧为庞德提供了一个时间结构概念,使他从意象主义的本能瞬间走向《诗章》复杂和延长的结构,实现了其长诗情感统一和意象统一的诗学理想。《诗章4》展示了庞德掌握能剧中的变形和表达人类普世情感方式的熟练程度,也表现了庞德在能剧情感统一和意象统一的启发下将短小精悍的意象主义诗歌发展成长诗的可能性。《比萨诗章》凸显了能剧的情感统一和意象统一所形成的艺术强度和张力。%In the evolution of his poetic style, American poet Ezra Pound draws inspiration from Japanese Noh. Noh plays suggest to Pound a structural conception of time which allows him to progress from the momentary intuitions of Imagism Cantos ; as a result, his poetics of Unity of Emotion to the complex and extended structure of The and Unity of Image in the long poem is estab- lished. Canto IV not only demonstrates Pound' s mastery of metamorphosis and expression of uni- versal human emotion in Noh plays, but also unfolds the possibility of creating a long poem on the basis of the principle of Unity of Emotion and Unity of Image in Noh plays. The Pisan Cantos reflect the artistic charm and tension based on this principle.

    本文探讨了庞德的诗学与新历史主义批评方法论之间的亲缘类同性.这一类同性不是简单地归于庞德与新历史主义之间的关系,而是作为一种结构性原则存在于各自的作品之中:无论在庞德的诗歌中还是在新历史主义的批评著作中,大量材料组合模式常常体现了透明细节之间存在的明显的亲缘类同性.当我们关注另一层次上的相似性时,这一结构模式所具有的更为深广的涵义更加明显:庞德和新历史主义的著作都相应地具有全球性,两者都倾向于使用透明细节来展示社会或文化的宏大图景--按照庞德的说法,即要用"密集的细节"来捕捉不断复现的根本性的文明结构;按照新历史主义的说法,即要将文本线索的微小结构置于显微镜下以展示"整个艺术家与整一化的社会之间壮观的对峙"图景.这种对于从地区性细节走向全球性宏景的关注把庞德和新历史主义置于当前全球化话语的中心.庞德毕生致力于设计一种泛文化蓝图的努力与近来新历史主义朝文化可动性研究的转向进一步表明,新历史主义与庞德不仅有着相同的文化诗学观,而且有着相同的诗歌观,即诗歌可以跨文化传播和交流其意义.%This essay explores the family resemblance between the poetics of Ezra Pound and the critical methodology of New Historicism. I argue that such a resemblance does not simply pertain to the relationship between Pound and the New Historicists; it alternatively functions as an organizational principle in each of their works: whether in Pound's poetry or in a New Historicist's critical work, the vast array of materials is often assembled by means of an apparent family resemblance among the Luminous Details. The larger implication of this compositional method becomes clear when we consider a resemblance at another level: both Pound's and the New Historicist's works are global in scale-they tend to use

  8. 从“漩涡主义”到“非个性化理论”--庞德、艾略特诗学思想比较%From Vorticism to Impersonality Theory:A Contrastive Study of Poetics Between Ezra Pound and TS Eliot

    2014-01-01

    庞德与艾略特是20世纪初意象派诗歌的代表人物,庞德对艾略特早期的诗歌创作有较大的影响,但之后两人形成了不同的诗学思想体系。通过比较分析两者的诗学理论和作品,发现庞德崇尚简约典雅的意象,强调以赋格的形式组织诗篇,以漩涡式的主题统摄诗歌,并追求东方式的诗歌境界。而艾略特的非个性化理论则深受法国象征主义影响,提出以客观对应物融合感受和思想,通过物像构成复杂的象征体系,以情感逃避的方式体现人类普遍情感。面对破碎的现实世界,两者都试图在诗歌中重塑艺术的一致性。%Both Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot are representatives of the imagist poetry at the beginning of 20th century. With Pound's impact on Eliot's early composition, they have finally formed diverse poetics systems. A contrastive analysis of their poetics and poems is conducted to reveal dissimilarities between them. Pound, in favor of concise and graceful images, emphasizes the governing theme of a poem as a vortex and the construction of poetry in the form of Fugue, so as to approach the oriental poetry spirit. In a contrast, T. S. Eliot's impersonality, deeply affected by French Symbolism, tends to integrate thought and sensibility into the objective correlative, and endeavors to formulate complicated symbolic systems constituted by object images to express the universal emotion of humanity by constraining the subjective convey of emotion. In a chaotic world, both Pound and Eliot attempt to reshape the consistency of arts.

  10. The Remainder Way to Form the Cultural Identity in Translation:A Case Study of Ezra Pound’s Ideogrammic and Juxtaposing Pattern in Translating Chinese Classical Poetry%翻译塑造文化身份的“剩余”途径--以庞德翻译中国古诗的析字拆词和意象并置法为例

    2015-01-01

    文章旨在以让-雅克•勒塞克勒和劳伦斯•韦努蒂的“剩余”理论为指导,研究庞德翻译中国古诗所采用的析字拆词和意象并置的翻译方法,进而获得中国古典文学输出的某种文化启示。庞德在翻译中国古诗中采用了析字拆词和意象并置的翻译模式,一方面造成庞德翻译中过度自由的增减和主观阐释,另一方面却呈现出对中国古诗的文本性、文化性和历史性的尊重。这种翻译模式符合韦努蒂对异化翻译的定义,却违背了文学多元系统的干预法则。勒塞克勒和韦努蒂所提出的“剩余”理论融合了解构主义、社会学和阐释学的特点,为这种翻译模式提供了四个不同层次的诠释,进而在中英不对等的语言权力关系中,为中诗英译的文化议程和身份塑造提供了新的视角和方法论。%This article aims to investigate Ezra Pound’s ideogrammic and juxtaposing pattern in translating Chinese classical poetry for some cultural enlightenment in exporting Chinese classical literature in the light of the Remainder theory created by Jean-Jacques Lecercle and developed by Laurence Venuti. Pound’s ideogrammic and juxtaposing pattern in trans-lating Chinese classical poetry gave rise to excessive freedom of amplification and reduction, and subjectivity in interpretation while it showed his respect to the textuality, culturality and history of Chinese classical poetry. This pattern is consistent with Venuti’s definition of foreignizing translation but inconsistent with the law of interference according to the polysystem theory. Combining the elements of deconstruction, sociology and hermeneutics, Lecercle and Venuti’s Remainder theory provides a new interpretation for Pound’s translation pattern in four hierarchies and thus a new perspective and methodology for the cul-tural agenda and identity in translating Chinese classical poetry into English amid the imbalanced

Eliot’s performance of The Waste Land the jarring contrast between the work’s built-in polyphony and the neutral soundscape created by Eliot’s leveling of intonational differences is symptomatic of the poem’s simultaneous “dismissal of connections between images, scenes and voices” and blurring of the “proper boundaries between things.”...

    2014-01-01

    《诗章》中庞德把史诗英雄奥德修斯作为贯穿诗篇始终的原型人物,传达了诗人庞德“英雄”救世的理想。神话中的英雄原型的不同侧面---返乡的航海者、有勇有谋的行动者、秩序的创建者及坚定的追寻者“置换变形”为诗篇中的汉诺、马拉泰斯塔、亚当斯和杰斐逊、墨索里尼以及诗人自己等历史和现实中的“英雄”。他们都是庞德心目中与奥德修斯原型一脉相承的“奋力走出愚昧走向真知”的精神的化身,表达了庞德的“英雄崇拜”情结。%With the epic hero Odysseus as a prototypical personality running through the whole poem, The Cantos makes an expression of Pound’s ideal of saving the world by heroes. Various aspects of the hero Odysseus in Greek mythology, i. e. the Voyager of Nostos, the Man of Action, the Order-Constructor, and the Unwavering Seeker, is metamorphosed into historical or contemporary figures such as Hanno, Malatesta, Adams and Jefferson, Mussolini, and the poet himself in The Cantos. The relationship between these "heroic"figures and Odysseus reveals Pound’s"hero-worship complex" as well as the inherited spirit of"struggling upward out of ignorance into the clear light of philosophy" in Pound’s mind’s eye.

    瓦尔特·本雅明认为,翻译服务于建立语言之间隐秘的互利关系的宏伟目标.在本雅明看来,理想的翻译应该是透明的,能够以直译的方式更充分地彰显原作的光芒,而当直译变得僵化、成为语言的牢笼时,翻译又需要遵守一条原则,即忠实于语言流的自由.本文的目的正是要探讨庞德的诗歌话语如何传达本雅明关于译者任务的见解,揭示庞德对不同文化的改造如何展示文化翻译的伦理.本文认为,以“居中”或“缝隙”形式跨越“不可译性”的核心在于能够借助于文化翻译诗学来揭示其可见性和可复现性,译者需要基于相互尊重和对等的原则制造适当的距离和自由的语言置换以建立文化翻译的伦理.

    2013-01-01

    As one genre of literature, poetry is the elite in both Chinese language and its culture. With its unique characteristics of metrical and form regulations and the beauty of its simplicity and conciseness, Chinese Tang poetry is one of the brightest pearls in the world literature treasury.Translating as a purposeful activity was originated from the functionalist approaches to translation. From the perspective of functional grammar, this thesis attempts to study two translation versions of Song You Ren written by Li Bai. More emphasis has been put on the similarities and differentiations of the textual analysis. Through the analysis and compari-son between the two translation versions, it is found that functional grammar is not only helpful to have a deep understanding of the discourse, but will also throw some light upon the practice of translation.

    2005-01-01

    This report describes an attempt to improve the existing control of coal mills used at the Danish power plant Nordjyllandsvaerket Unit 3. The coal mills pulverize raw coal to a fine-grained powder, which is injected into the furnace of the power plant. In the furnace the coal is combusted, producing heat, which is used for steam production. With better control of the coal mills, the power plant can be controlled more efficiently during load changes, thus improving the overall availability and efficiency of the plant. One of the main difficulties from a control point of view is that the coal mills are not equipped with sensors that detect how much coal is injected into the furnace. During the project, a fairly detailed, non-linear differential equation model of the furnace and the steam circuit was constructed and validated against data obtained at the plant. It was observed that this model was able to capture most of the important dynamics found in the data. Based on this model, it is possible to extract linearized models in various operating points. The report discusses this approach and illustrates how the model can be linearized and reduced to a lower-order linear model that is valid in the vicinity of an operating point by removing states that have little influence on the overall response. A viable adaptive control strategy would then be to design controllers for each of these simplified linear models, i.e., the control loop that sets references to the coal mills and feedwater, and use the load as a separate input to the control. The control gains should then be scheduled according to the load. However, the variations and uncertainties in the coal mill are not addressed directly in this approach. Another control approach was taken in this project, where a Kalman filter based on measurements of air flow blown into the furnace and the oxygen concentration in the flue gas is designed to estimate the actual coal flow injected into the furnace. With this estimate, it becomes possible to close an inner loop around the coal mill itself, thus giving it better disturbance rejection capabilities, as indicated through simulations.

    In this note, we consider the regularity of solutions of the nonlinear elliptic systems of n-Laplacian type involving measures, and prove that the gradients of the solutions are in the weak Lebesgue space L n,∞. We also obtain the a priori global and local estimates for the L n,∞-norm of the gradients of the solutions without using BMO-estimates. The proofs are based on a new lemma on the higher integrability of functions.

    钱兆明; 陈礼珍

    2014-01-01

    庞德在意大利期间同侨居于此的中国学者杨凤岐之间有书信往来,分析这些史料可以追溯庞德与杨凤歧之间关于儒学政治化的争论和情谊,进而驳斥西方学者提出的庞德因儒学研究而走向法西斯主义的观点。作为一名深受儒家思想熏陶的中国学者,杨凤歧认为庞德的法西斯立场和儒学观点是两个并存而不能等同的思想体系,得知庞德在研读《四书》后,杨便鼓励他“专心于此”,目的显然是让其虔心投入儒学而远离法西斯。杨凤岐虽未能真正改变庞德的政治立场,但他关于中日战争以及儒学思想的言论无疑使庞德在他的法西斯岁月里避免了彻底的偏信则暗。%The surviving correspondence between Pound and Yang Fengqi brings into the open not only their controversy over the War of Resistance against Japan, but also their collaboration on Confucian translations.Yang Fengqi identified Confucianism and Fascism as two separate systems coexisting in Pound's mind.He encouraged Pound to occupy himself with the study of the Four Books.Their 1939-1941 correspondence furnishes a rebuttal of the view that preoccupation with Confucianism led Pound to Fascism.Although Yang Fengqi did not succeed in changing Pound's political stance, to some extent, he helped to decrease Pound's susceptibility to Fascism in the early 1940's.

    “势”与“语势”是研究庞德诗学的重要概念。从闪光细节的方法,到意象理论,再到漩涡理论均是对“势”与“语势”的关注。由于意象与漩涡是庞德永恒的美学追求,对庞德而言,“势”即为充盈于意象或漩涡中的情感。“势”这一美学追求表现在语言上即为“语势”。庞德提倡“创新”,“语势”即在语言形式上的创新,也就是说庞德注重通过陌生化手段取势,通过音象、形象及义象等形式取势。%"Energy" and "energy in language/ energy of language" are Pound' s poetics. Pound was increasingly obsessed with energy residing in key concepts in the study of Luminous Detail, the Image, and the Vortex. As the Image and Vortex are Pound's perennial aesthetic pursuit, it is held that energy, to Pound, refers to emotion pregnant in the Image or Vortex. Energy is expressed in energy in As Pound advocated "make it new", his emphasis on energy in language is on innovation deviation. The language can be charged or energized in phanopoeia, melopoeia as well as languag in language logopoeia e. by

    《诗章》的整体结构究竟是什么,一直是学界争论的话题,也是庞德自己想要弄清的问题.从庞德的有关论述可以发现,他曾企图用赋格作《诗章》的基本结构,而《诗章》的文本也确实具有赋格的基本特征.在谋篇布局上, 《诗章》的丰富性、碎片性、跳跃性、开放性,连同其内在的统一性,都艺术地再现了赋格的主题、答题、对题及其循环往复的结构特点.在意象塑造上,《诗章》的众多意象不但是声诗、形诗、理诗的具体内容,也是赋格的宏观结构与微观结构的诗化再现.在主题呈现上, 《诗章》的三大主题群也都各有自己的主题、答题和对题,表现着对赋格的继承、充实与突破.

    2016-01-01

    庞德的《诗章》语言多、文体多、新词多,令人目不暇接,给人以前所未有的阅读体验.包罗万象的知识,往往表现为非中心、非系统、拼贴式的语言结构,需要借助顶针等所谓“套材”的重组之后,才能建立起各种知识之间的内在关联.《诗章》对生命本质的追求和对生命历程的探究,则在时空轴上诗化地构筑起多元的坐标.中心的建构过程即对生命本身的书写过程,而在中心化与边缘化的动态运动中,既用人衡量万物,也用万物衡量人,则体现了庞德主张的表意语言的强大表现力.

    美国著名诗人埃兹拉·庞德创造性地诠释了孔子思想中的秩序观和正名观,并将其注入到煌煌巨著《诗章》的创作中,使这部史诗弥漫着浓郁的中国文化元素.孔子的秩序观赋予《诗章》独特的脉络结构,《诗章》以旁征博引的形式明证孔子秩序观的普世性和普时性价值.孔子的正名观激发了庞德对语言功能的哲理思考并成为支撑其现代诗学的一个重要理论依据,庞德对正名观的阐发也契合了现代欧美学界语言学转向的潮流.

    庞德像许多现当代美国诗人一样,都强调诗人与民族、个人与国家之间的血肉关系,他们往往透过个人的眼睛放眼整个民族与时代,置个人的情感于民族乃至人类的命运之中,融诗人抒情式的灵感与史诗般的抱负为一体.本文通过对庞德创作思想的分析以及作品的研读,揭示创作艺术中抒情性与史诗性兼容并蓄的艺术特征,为研读现当代美国长篇诗歌提供了一个新的视角.

    《比萨诗章》是学界公认的庞德最好的作品之一.在该作品的创作中,庞德不仅融合了丰富的儒家思想元素,而且把儒家思想同极权主义联系在一起形成其所谓的极权主义儒家思想.这是庞德把他所理解的儒家思想与他所理解的极权主义结合在一起的产物.庞德从精英主义、国家利益、社会责任和社会秩序以及公平公正的角度对儒家思想进行的个性化和创造性的阐释和解读.这种个性化创造性阐释和解读表面上具有合理性,实质上具有极大迷惑性、危害性和危险性.

    2007-01-01

    松尾芭蕉的俳句,体现了日本民族一种熔融的自然观,同时也表现了一种东方式的生命意识.庞德的意象诗,继承了19世纪象征主义的"感应论",寻求与万物生命的对话;同时与20世纪象征诗人的"客观对应物"也有共同之处,都努力使生命的本真呈现出来.但是,庞德意象诗的主要灵感来自于东方的生命意识.中国诗歌的生命融合观,日本俳句的生命瞬间呈现的意识,使庞德最大限度地走出西方理性主义观念,捕捉生命瞬间本真的呈现.

    Science.gov (United States)

    2011-01-14

    Acid-base thermochemistry of isolated aliphatic amino acids (denoted AAA): glycine, alanine, valine, leucine, isoleucine and proline has been examined theoretically by quantum chemical computations at the G3MP2B3 level. Conformational analysis on neutral, protonated and deprotonated species has been used to identify the lowest energy conformers and to estimate the population of conformers expected to be present at thermal equilibrium at 298 K. Comparison of the G3MP2B3 theoretical proton affinities, PA, and ΔH(acid) with experimental results is shown to be correct if experimental thermochemistry is re-evaluated and adapted to the most recent acidity-basicity scales. From this point of view, a set of evaluated proton affinities of 887, 902, 915, 916, 919 and 941 kJ mol(-1), and a set of evaluated ΔH(acid) of 1433, 1430, 1423, 1423, 1422 and 1426 kJ mol(-1), is proposed for glycine, alanine, valine, leucine, isoleucine and proline, respectively. Correlations with structural parameters (Taft's σ(α) polarizability parameter and molecular size) suggest that polarizability of the side chain is the major origin of the increase in PA and decrease in ΔH(acid) along the homologous series glycine, alanine, valine and leucine/isoleucine. Heats of formation of gaseous species AAA, AAAH(+) and [AAA-H](-) were computed at the G3MP2B3 level. The present study provides previously unavailable Δ(f)H°(298) for the ionized species AAAH(+) and [AAA-H](-). Comparison with Benson's estimate, and correlation with molecular size, show that several experimental Δ(f)H°(298) values of neutral or gaseous AAA might be erroneous.

    Calvin循环是化能自养细菌同化CO2的主要途径.该循环大多数酶由cbb基因编码.除保守的内在基因排列次序外,不同化能自养细菌cbb基因簇在基因大小和操纵子结构上存在差异.兼性化能自养菌cbb操纵子比专性化能自养菌受到更严格的调控,其调控作用主要由位于cbb操纵子上游编码LysR家族转录激活蛋白的cbbR基因执行.最近的研究表明,另外一些蛋白因子也可能参与cbb基因调控.尽管操纵子调控元件接收到的代谢信号仍是未知的,但一般认为细胞的氧化还原状态起着

  11. The Effect of Radical-Based Grouping in Character Learning in Chinese as a Foreign Language

    2014-01-01

    The logographic nature of the Chinese writing system creates a huge hurdle for Chinese as a foreign language (CFL) learners. Existing literature (e.g., Shen, [Shen, H. H., 2010]; Taft & Chung, [Taft, M., 1999]) suggests that radical knowledge facilitates character learning. In this project, we selected 48 compound characters in eight radical…

    Ezra Pound is generally considered the poet most responsible for defining and promoting a modernist aesthetic in poetry. His significant contributions to poetry began with his leadership in Imagist Movement which has been unanimously viewed as the first and most lastingly influential modernist movement. T.S. Eliot,as one of the greatest American writers among the Modernists, inevitably came under the influence of Ezra pound.

    2012-01-01

    基于19世纪末20世纪初艺术历史学家费诺洛萨和宾扬的著作,20世纪美国诗人庞德在创作生涯的初期便迷恋上了佛教中的观音.他在诗作中将观音形象与西方的圣母玛利亚形象合一,旨在融合西方与东方的宗教圣像,并尝试将孔子形象与她们并列.庞德并没有像其他学者那样将观音基督化,而是在诗作中突显了观音的宗教特征.这些宗教特征中最重要的元素是观音的净水瓶、莲花、杨柳枝和月亮,庞德在第二次世界大战后期撰写的《比萨诗章》中着力书写了这些象征元素,而他此前的创作手稿对这些元素的表现更为清晰.这些尚未全部出版的手稿塑造了观音的传统形象,展现了上天的慈悲为怀和自然的治愈能力,它既是多元文化的,又是真挚个人的.深入细察庞德的意大利文和英文手稿中的观音形象,《比萨诗章》中观音的意蕴便昭然若揭.

    2012-01-01

      美国诗人庞德谙悉古今,善于旁征博引,撷取各民族文化之长为己所用.他的诗歌理论在很多方面得益于东方文化,其中借鉴吸收了日本俳句诗写作的结构特点.20世纪初,在日本热风靡西方的背景下,庞德开始和日本文化结缘,而后,他创作出一些类俳句诗,并以此为启发创建了“叠合理论”的新文艺理论,而这也正是庞德实用主义思想和日本俳句结合衍生发展变化的结果.虽然庞德对日本俳句的了解并不透彻,但是他以日本俳句为启发而开创的意象派新诗运动给东西方文化交流带来的深远影响却不容忽视%  American poets Pound, familiar with the ancient and modern works, quoted copiously from many sources and exploited essence of different cultures. The oriental culture inspired his poetry theories which referred and absorbed the structure of Japanese Haikus. At the beginning of the 20th century, Japanese Fashion sweeping western countries, Pound established his relationship with Japanese Culture and created some Haikus Poem which initiated the new Literary theories of superposition and which was exactly the results of combination of Pound’s pragmatism and Japanese Haikus. Although his comprehension of Japanese Haikus was not complete, the imagist poetry campaign inspired by Japanese Haikus had a profound effect on exchange between eastern and western literature, which can not be neglected .

Improving the virtual reference experience: How closely do academic libraries adhere to RUSA guidelines? Journal of Library and Information Services in Distance Learning, 4(1-2, 30-42.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Annie M. Hughes

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available Objective – To evaluate the quality of academic libraries’ virtual reference services and measure compliance to the Reference & User Services Association’s (RUSA’s Guidelines for Virtual Reference & User Services.Design – Qualitative research study evaluating virtual reference chat sessions using RUSA’s Guidelines for Virtual Reference & User Services.Setting – Virtual reference environments in public academic libraries in the United States.Subjects – Twenty virtual reference providers from public academic libraries.Methods – Initially researchers selected 1 academic library out of each of the 50 states to evaluate for quality virtual chat reference services, however because of factors including time and availability of virtual chat services to unaffiliated institutions; the sample included only 20 academic libraries.After selecting the 20 academic libraries for evaluation, researchers posed as virtual chat reference patrons using emails and aliases that had no affiliation to any particular institution. Researchers then asked the librarian or librarystaff a two-part question making sure to leave out any library jargon or anything that would lead the virtual chat reference operator to recognize that they are also affiliated with a library or library school.Using the RUSA Guidelines for Virtual Reference & User Services, researchers then evaluated their virtual chat reference experience for the following: Approachability; Interest; Listening/Inquiring; Searching; Follow-Up; Suggests patron call or visit the library.Main Results – When evaluated for jargon-free websites and overall usability in finding all types of reference services, 80% of the library’s websites were easy to use and jargon free, reflecting overall high usability. Evaluation of library staff’s ability to maintain “word contact” by writing prompts to convey interest in the patron’s question left some room for improvement. Sixty percent of researchers coding their virtual reference experience thought the level of contact was below expected. Information regarding question and answering procedures, question scope, types of answers provided and expected turnaround time for questions was only available in 30% of examined websites. Thirty-five percent of researchers felt that library staff members gathered enough information to answer the question without compromising privacy, however, 25% thought that staff members gathered a very small amount of information on the patron’s need, although privacy never felt compromised. When researchers evaluated the library staff member on their ability to explain how to utilize resources properly, 50% thought the instruction provided was below average. Although 15% believed they received “superior instruction.” Seventy-five percent of the researchers were not asked by a library staff member if the question received anadequate answer, 50% of reference transactions library staff did not consult a librarian or expert, and in 55% of transactions the staff member did not suggest that the patron visit or call the library.Conclusion – While the researchers received some valuable information about the need to improve virtual reference services in academic libraries, there were some flaws in their research. The question they developed was almost too clear and made it difficult for the individual answering the chat reference to adequately perform a reference interview or ask probing questions. It is possible that because researchers carefully planned out their question they set themselves up to create an interaction that would not normally occur in a virtual chat reference environment. Also, because researchers were unable to evaluate what was occurring in the environment surrounding the virtual chat reference providers it was impossible to make a judgment on the speed or length of the interaction. The researchers did come away from the study with results that point to a need to utilize the RUSA guidelines in order to conduct effective reference interviews, maintain appropriate contact with the user when engaging in chat reference, provide instruction and point patrons to quality resources as well as consult an expert on the topic if needed. They surmised that if libraries utilized these guidelines, virtual chat reference services would be improved.

    阐明发表在2001年第6期的"正常沸点下液体蒸发焓的基团贡献计算法"中的"阻碍因子是液体密度的函数"等理论观点是有片面性的;分析了将van der Waals方程中的a,b两个参数都加以忽略,实际上就已经变为理想气体方程,与该文所谓"用分子热力学方法建立了纯物质的气液平衡的推广van der Waals模型"的提法是矛盾的,该文自报"平均误差为1.39%,优于文献发表的其它方法"经证明并不符合实际.结合已经造成严重局限性的具体事实揭示出国际上著名的Benson基团法在理论上的缺陷,提出应用有机分子半金属结构理论加以改进的若干例证,作为今后基团法发展新方向的先例,也是使基团法经验式发展成为理论式或半理论式的例证.

    Many students think of poetry as a meaning to be figured out, a puzzle to be solved--as if poets were forever doomed to write only what they never quite mean and to mean what they never actually write. The struggle to discover meaning becomes acute with that distinctly modern poetry created by T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Wallace Stevens, and their…

    Full Text Available The penitential prayer in Ezra 9:6-15The penitential prayer is a traditional Gattung used in ancient Israel. The prayer of Ezra 9:6-15 bears all the characteristic marks of this genre. In this prayer a historical scheme and themes such as “the land” are used to depict the Judean community’s sin. In a study of its literary structure, macro narrative context and socio historic background, this article shows that the confession in the prayer in reality is a liturgical strategy to proclaim Yahweh’s righteousness in his relationship with his people. Rather than imploring God, the community of faith expresses its belief in God and their identity as God’s own people in this prayer.

  10. Inhibition of photosynthetic CO₂ fixation in the coral Pocillopora damicornis and its relationship to thermal bleaching.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hill, Ross; Szabó, Milán; ur Rehman, Ateeq; Vass, Imre; Ralph, Peter J; Larkum, Anthony W D

    2014-06-15

    Two inhibitors of the Calvin-Benson cycle [glycolaldehyde (GA) and potassium cyanide (KCN)] were used in cultured Symbiodinium cells and in nubbins of the coral Pocillopora damicornis to test the hypothesis that inhibition of the Calvin-Benson cycle triggers coral bleaching. Inhibitor concentration range-finding trials aimed to determine the appropriate concentration to generate inhibition of the Calvin-Benson cycle, but avoid other metabolic impacts to the symbiont and the animal host. Both 3 mmol l(-1) GA and 20 μmol l(-1) KCN caused minimal inhibition of host respiration, but did induce photosynthetic impairment, measured by a loss of photosystem II function and oxygen production. GA did not affect the severity of bleaching, nor induce bleaching in the absence of thermal stress, suggesting inhibition of the Calvin-Benson cycle by GA does not initiate bleaching in P. damicornis. In contrast, KCN did activate a bleaching response through symbiont expulsion, which occurred in the presence and absence of thermal stress. While KCN is an inhibitor of the Calvin-Benson cycle, it also promotes reactive oxygen species formation, and it is likely that this was the principal agent in the coral bleaching process. These findings do not support the hypothesis that temperature-induced inhibition of the Calvin-Benson cycle alone induces coral bleaching.

  19. Hebrew and Latin astrology in the twelfth century: the example of the location of pain.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Burnett, Charles

    2010-06-01

    The formative period of Latin and Hebrew astrology occurred virtually simultaneously in both cultures. In the second quarter of the twelfth century the terminology of the subject was established and the textbooks which became authoritative were written. The responsibility for this lay almost entirely with two scholars: John of Seville for the Latins, and Abraham ibn Ezra for the Jews. It is unlikely to have been by coincidence that the same developments in astrology occurred in these two cultures. John of Seville and Abraham ibn Ezra were both brought up within the Islamic culture of Spain, and their astrology was Arabic astrology. Moreover, some scholars have thought that John's origins were Jewish, while Ibn Ezra is known to have collaborated with Latin scholars (whose names are not recorded). It cannot be a coincidence that they forged the science of astrology for their respect co-religionists at almost the same time. Yet, very little research has been done on the possible relations between the two scholars. The purpose of this paper is to begin to explore this relationship, and to illustrate it in particular by their shared doctrine concern the location of pain.

    “The River-Merchant’s Wife:A Letter”, written by the great poet Li Bai, is the most prestigious version among the translations of Chinese ancient poetry by Ezra Pound and has been accepted as one of the classics of American literature. The po⁃em exquisitely expresses the changes of the wife’s mind at different phases. Martin and Rose’s Appraisal Theory provides us with a theoretical framework for the analysis of the different realizations of the sentimental resources of the poem in the original and its English version.

  13. Poetic license: using the Exner system of Rorschach analysis to understand client writings.

    1991-01-01

    Is it possible to generalize client responses to Rorschach stimuli to their responses to other stimuli in the life space? If so, can we interpret their responses without a formal administration? This paper explores the application of Exner-based Rorschach techniques to client verbalizations and writings. This exploration is conducted by taking "poetic license" with the Exner system and analyzing three pieces of literature: poems by Basho, Ezra Pound, and Siv Cedering Fox. It appears that there is some face validity to the notion that psychological processes can be inferred by interpreting language according to some Exner concepts and techniques.

It was the work of a poet too ambitious, too afraid of being cramped, to work according to a plan. Instead of a plan, Pound devised a strategy for creating a self-scrutinizing text, continually extending itself, ramifying outward, as it groped to comprehend its own prior meanings, to improvise new networks of connection, and to assimilate new material: a text shaped like a developing brain.

    Ezra Pound is one of the founders of the American Imagist poetry, and Chinese Classic Poetry happened to be a great stimulus as the Renaissance from the Greeks to this poetry movement. Pound, who was deeply fascinated by Chinese poetry, has rendered many into English. Yet due to cultural differences, Pound's translation has a lot of mistakes. And this paper aims at a cultural analysis of the mistranslation on a certain text to display its influence upon the Imagist Movement in the history of American Poetry.

    In 'Spatial Data Infrastructures at Work', Ezra Dessers introduces spatial enablement as a key concept to describe the realisation of SDI objectives in the context of individual public sector processes. Drawing on four years of research, Dessers argues that it has become essential, even unavoidable, to manage and (re)design inter-organisational process chains in order to further advance the role of SDIs as an enabling platform for a spatially enabled society. Detailed case studies illustrate that the process he describes is the setting in which one can see the SDI at work.

  18. The regulatory interplay between photorespiration and photosynthesis.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Timm, Stefan; Florian, Alexandra; Fernie, Alisdair R; Bauwe, Hermann

    2016-05-01

    The Calvin-Benson cycle and the photorespiratory pathway form the photosynthetic-photorespiratory supercycle that is responsible for nearly all biological CO2 fixation on Earth. In essence, supplementation with the photorespiratory pathway is necessary because the CO2-fixing enzyme of the Calvin-Benson cycle, ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase (Rubisco), catalyses several side reactions including the oxygenation of ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate, which produces the noxious metabolite phosphoglycolate. The photorespiratory pathway recycles the phosphoglycolate to 3-phosphoglycerate and in this way allows the Calvin-Benson cycle to operate in the presence of molecular oxygen generated by oxygenic photosynthesis. While the carbon flow through the individual and combined subprocesses is well known, information on their regulatory interaction is very limited. Regulatory feedback from the photorespiratory pathway to the Calvin-Benson cycle can be presumed from numerous inhibitor experiments and was demonstrated in recent studies with transgenic plants. This complexity illustrates that we are not yet ready to rationally engineer photosynthesis by altering photorespiration since despite massive understanding of the core photorespiratory pathway our understanding of its interaction with other pathways and processes remains fragmentary.

    Full Text Available ‘The pen is mightier than the sword’: Literacy and scribes in Israel during the Second Temple period. This article is divided in two parts. Part one examines scribal education and scribes in the ancient Near East and Israel. Although no real evidence exists for scribal schools and education in Israel, it is argued that some form of institutionalised training must have taken place in order to produce literary texts of such a high quality as are found in the Hebrew Bible. Comparative material from Mesopotamia serves to trace the education of scribes in general. Part two focuses on the Second Temple period in ancient Israel. Ezra the scribe emerges as a typical scribe from that era. Post-exilic Israel was grappling with its identity, and sought guidance from ַ [as was written in the Torah]. However, it appears that there were different interpretations of the written Law during this period. Scribes of the Ezra circle advocated a radical policy of exclusivity on the basis of what was written in the Law; others who wrote the texts of Trito-Isaiah and Ruth pleaded for a more inclusive attitude towards foreigners. The conclusion is that the battle was fought not with the sword, but with the pen, therefore: ‘The pen is mightier than the sword.’

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2012-06-01

    Full Text Available In the context of the expanding discourse of transnational Asian American Studies, this essay studies Kimiko Hahn, particularly her engagement with East Asian traditions in her poetry, and shows how her work exemplifies a transcultural Asian American literature that requires reading beyond the domestic boundaries of the United States. Drawing on Walter Benjamin's and Gayatri Spivak’s translation studies, it examines how Hahn critiques the assimilationist representation of Asian women in translations of Asian texts such as Arthur Waley’s version of Lady Murasaki’s The Tale of Genji. It then reads how, based on her thoughts about literary translation, Hahn experiments with creative practices of “translation,” including a retranslation of Ezra Pound’s Chinese images and untranslation of zuihitsu. Rewriting Ezra Pound’s Chinese images, Hahn reconstructs women’s voice in ancient Chinese writings. Undoing the simplistic interpretation of the classical Japanese form zuihitsu, her restorative untranslation of the form makes connections between the discursive agency of ancient Asian women writers and contemporary women poets. Thus, Hahn’s translational writing reveals a poetics of “continental drift,” a poetics that calls attention to the necessity of reading Asian American literature in transnational and transcultural contexts.

    Anxiety among patients after surgery can affect their physiological and psychological well-being. The aim of this study was to investigate and compare the effects of Benson's relaxation and rhythmic breathing techniques on postoperative anxiety in candidates for the mastectomy surgery. This randomized controlled clinical trial study was conducted with ninety patients in 2013. The patients were hospitalized for the mastectomy surgery in three surgical wards in a teaching hospital, Tehran, Iran. They were randomly assigned into three groups: Benson's relaxation including the cognitive relaxation technique type, rhythmic breathing including the somatic relaxation technique type and control groups. According to the Davidson and Schwartz multi-process theory, the Benson's relaxation and the rhythmic breathing techniques have cognitive and somatic effects, respectively. One day before the surgery, the patients in the intervention groups were trained regarding relaxation and breathing techniques and were asked to perform the techniques under the supervision of the researcher in the night before the surgery. The cognitive somatic anxiety questionnaire was used to measure anxiety before the intervention and half an hour after recovery of consciousness after the surgery. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used for data analysis via the SPSS v.21 software. There were no statistically significant differences between the groups in terms of demographic characteristics. The application of both techniques reduced the level of patients' anxiety after the surgery. The patients in the Benson's relaxation technique group reported only the relief of somatic anxiety. However, the breathing technique patients reported a reduction in both cognitive and somatic anxiety. The Benson's relaxation and rhythmic breathing techniques can reduce postoperative anxiety in patients after the mastectomy surgery. Trial Registration Number: IRCT2014042017350N1.

  8. The USA Labor Unions Against the Legislative Restraint on Their Participation in Election Campaigns (1947-1948

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Koryakova Irina Konstantinovna

    2014-09-01

    Full Text Available The article is devoted to investigating the struggle of the USA labor unions for the repeal of the Taft-Hartley law provision on the restraint of labor organizations’ political activity in connection with federal election campaigns. The author demonstrates that the united and active efforts of American labor unions became the main factor that made the USA Supreme Court interpret the Taft-Hartley law provision on the restraint of using labor expenditures for participating in election campaigns in favour of labor unions. The Taft-Hartley law was adopted in June of 1947 and became the main document determining the trends, forms and ways of governmental intervention into labor-management relations in the U.S. Signifying the transition from liberal statism to conservative statism, the Taft-Hartley law drastically changed the character of the state regulation of labor-management relations. Designed by the political forces intending to destroy the influence of trade unions, it seriously limited the resources and opportunities of labor party to uphold the interests of working population. As a result, the leaders of the American Federation of Labor and the Congress of Industrial Organizations were unanimous in their indignation regarding new legislation which actually put direct limitations on the right of trade unions to exercise political activities including the right to finance their participation in the presidential and congressional elections. According to the Section 304 of the law, labor unions were denied the right to contributions and expenditures related to all federal elections including primaries. It meant that labor was not permitted to publish the information about the candidates and to express the opinions about them as a whole in any newspaper (labor or commercial. The AFL and the CIO leaders called that Section unconstitutional and decided to strive for defining it unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. Following the recommendations

    Electrochemical oxidation of nine para- and meta-substituted benzylamines in varying mole fractions of acetic acid in water has been investigated in the presence of 0.1 M sulphuric acid as supporting electrolyte. The oxidation potentials correlate well with Hammett’s substituent constants affording negative reaction constants. The correlation of potential values with macroscopic solvent parameters is non-linear suggesting that the operation of both specific and non-specific solvent-solvent-solute interaction mechanisms. Multiple correlation analysis of the experimental data with Kamlet-Taft solvatochromic parameters is employed.

    The negative solvatochromism of a series of pyridinium phenolates betaine dyes is investigated using three approaches: (a) empirical, based on the empirical solvent polarity parameter ET(30); (b) semi-empirical, based on the π∗, α, β set of parameters used in Kamlet-Taft's Solvatochromic Comparison Method (SCM); and (c) physical, by means of the Onsager reaction-field model of solvents. Comparison of the obtained correlations underscored the roles of both the two tert-butyl groups ortho to the oxygen atom and the interplanar angle between the phenyl rings on the very blue shifts observed as the polarity increases.

    Full Text Available The kinetics of the oxidation of 3-methyl-2,6-diphenyl-piperidin-4-one by quinolinium fluorochromate (QFC have been investigated in aqueous solutions of dimethyl sulphoxide, 1,4-dioxane, tert-butanol and acetone. The influence of the added co-solvent on the reactivity were analysed in the light of various simple and multiple regression equations, viz the Laidler-Eyring, Grunwald-Winstein, Swain and Kamlet-Taft equations. The obtained results showed that the solvation phenomenon plays a dominant role on the reactivity.

    Science.gov (United States)

    deCarvalho, R J

    1999-05-01

    Otto Rank's will therapy helped shape the ideas and techniques of relationship therapy developed by the Philadelphia social workers Jessie Taft, Virginia Robinson, and Frederick Allen in the 1930s. Rank's work and these ideas and techniques in turn strongly influenced the formulation of Carl Rogers' person-centered psychotherapy. This article compares and contrasts will, relationship, and person-centered approaches to psychotherapy and discusses the social factors--primarily the professional conflicts between a male-dominated psychiatry and female social workers over the independent practice of psychotherapy--that were crucial in the dissemination of Rank's psychological thought and the early popularity of Rogers.

    Versatile conjugated small molecules bearing cyanopyridone core (CP1-5), composed of various donor/acceptor moieties at position - 4 and - 6 have been designed, developed and characterized. Their solvatochromic studies were conducted and analyzed using Lippert-Mataga, Kamlet-Taft and Catalan solvent scales and interesting results were obtained. The polarizability/dipolarity of the solvent greatly influenced the spectra. The electrochemical studies were carried out using cyclic voltammetry to calculate the HOMO-LUMO energy levels. The study revealed that the synthesized conjugated small molecules possess low lying HOMO energy levels which can be exploited for application in various fields of optoelectronics.

    Full Text Available In the wake of the recent mid-term elections, this book makes interesting reading. David Farber's overall argument here, as emphasised by the title, is that conservatism as a recognisable political movement, ranging from Robert Taft in the 1930s through to George W. Bush in the 2000s, has entered a period of decline. This could be a strong dose of (academic, liberal wishful thinking, or, possibly, the author is on to something, but the American voter hasn’t realised it yet.The crucial point ...

    The Benson Beach littoral drift restoration project is a demonstration project that will replenish sand on Benson Beach, the public beach north of the North Jetty at the mouth of the Columbia River (MCR), using material dredged from the river during normal maintenance dredging of the navigational channel. A U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) proposal involves pumping the material from a sump area on the south side of the jetty to Benson Beach using a cutter suction dredge, also known as a pipeline dredge. If this one-time demonstration project proves feasible and successful, up to a million cubic yards of sediment could be used to replenish the outer coast littoral drift system in successive years by the same process. The primary goal of this study was to assess the potential risk of impacts to Dungeness crab from the proposed Benson Beach littoral drift restoration process of using the cutter suction dredge to move sediment from the proposed sump area on one side of the North Jetty to the beach on the other side of the jetty. Because there are no direct measurements of crab entrainment by pipeline dredge operating outside of the lower Columbia River navigation channel, dredge impacts for the proposed demonstration project were estimated using a modification of the dredge impact model (DIM) of Armstrong et al. (1987). The model estimates adult equivalent loss (AEL) of crabs using crab population density from trawl surveys, dredge project information (gear type, season, location, volume), and an entrainment function relating crab population density to entrainment by the dredge. The input used in applying the DIM to the Benson Beach littoral drift restoration included the specific dredging scenario provided by the Corps, existing data on crab density in previously proposed sump areas, and a series of entrainment functions. A total of fourteen scenarios were modeled and the outcomes compared with six reference scenarios intended to represent realistic to worst cases

    Full Text Available 【Abstract】Objective: To evaluate clinical outcome of suture anchors in strengthening both acromioclavicular and coracoclavicular ligaments in the surgical treatment of acromioclavicular joint dislocation. Methods: Twenty-eight patients with acute traumatic Rockwood III, IV and V dislocations of the acromioclavicular joint surgically treated at our institute between October 2010 and January 2012 were recruited. All patients underwent open reduction combined with suture anchors. Function was evaluated using the ConstantMurley shoulder score. Clinical and radiographic shoulder ratings were evaluated using Taft criteria at 3, 6 and 12 months. Results:Two cases with fixation loosening were not included in final statistical analysis. Other patients obtained full joint reposition on immediate postoperative radiographs. Follow-up was performed with an average of 15.6 months (range, 12-19. After early range of motion exercises, 96.2% of the patients (25/26 could abduct and elevate their shoulders more than 90 degrees within postoperative 3 months. There was no infection. Average Constant-Murley score was 96.3 points (range, 94-100 and mean Taft shoulder rating was 10.7 points (range, 8-12 at 12 months. Conclusion: The suture anchor is a relatively simple technique and can avoid screw removal which is helpful in reconstructing both acromioclavicular and coracoclavicular ligaments in acute traumatic acromioclavicular joint dislocation.

    We have studied the assembly and crystallinity of poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) (Mn ~ 28.2 kDa, regioregularity > 96 %, PDI ~ 1.3) in >100 binary solvent mixtures using UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy, and it is clear that the identity of the poor solvent used to drive aggregation has a significant impact on the structural order and crystallinity of the P3HT aggregates in solution. Here we report our findings using Hansen solubility parameters (HSPs), specifically the solubility distance vector, Ra, and the Kamlet-Taft solvatochromic parameters of the solvent mixtures to better understand the dominant solvent forces driving the self assembly of P3HT. We find that the directionality of the Ra vector provides a better measure of the crystallinity of the P3HT assemblies formed in the solvent mixtures than does the magnitude of the Ra vector. Our analysis of the Kamlet-Taft (α, β, π*) and ET(30) solvatochromic parameters reveals that the β parameter correlates best with the crystallinity of P3HT and that, in general, assemblies having higher structural order are formed in solvent mixtures with lower values of β.

  4. New comparison of psychological meaning of colors in samples and objects with semantic ratings

    2002-06-01

    In color preference and color-meaning research, color chips are widely used as stimuli. Are meanings of isolated color chips generalizeable to contextualized colors? According to Taft (1996), few significant differences exist between chip and object ratings for the same color. A similar survey was performed on 192 college students. This article reports the results of the study comparing semantic rating of color applied to a variety of familiar objects. The objects were a cup, T-shirt, sofa, car, notebook, and MP3 player, all images that represent daily life familiar objects. Subjects rated a set of 16 color chips, against 6 bipolar, 7-step semantic differential scales. The scales consisted of beautiful-ugly, soft-hard, warm-cool, elegant-vulgar, loud- discreet, and masculine-feminine. Analyses performed on the data indicated that unlike Taft's findings on 1996, significant differences existed between chip and object rating for the same color in every scale. The results of the study have implications for the use of color chips in color planning which suggest they are not compatible with the generality of results of the earlier color meaning research. Generally, a color judged to be beautiful, elegant and warm when presented as a chip does not equal beautiful, elegant, and warm when applied to the surface of an object such as a cup, T-shirt, sofa, car.

    A preliminary investigation of possible sources of cement rock in the Taft area was made during the latter part of August 1968. Adequate deposits of limestone, clay, quartz conglomerate and sandstone, and pisolitic iron ore, yet no gypsum, were located to support a Cement plant should it prove feasible to establish one in this area. These materials, made up mostly of Tertiary and later sediments, crop out in isolated, inconspicuous low hills in a north- trending belt, 10 to 15 kilometers wide, lying about 90 kilometers to-the east of At Taft. The belt extends for more than 90 kilometers from the vicinity of Jabal 'An in the south to the crushed rock pits at Radwan and beyond in the north. The area is readily accessible either from the Talf-Riyadh highway or from the Taif-Bishah road presently under construction. The limestone, which is quite pure and dense in some localities but dolomitic, argillaceous, and cherty in others, occurs in a variety of colors and would make suitable decorative building stone. The volcanic rocks of the Harrat Hadan, lying directly to the east of the limestone belt, include volcanic ash beds some of which may have been altered to bentonitlc clays. Others may have been lithified and might be suitable for light-weight aggregate. These possibilities remain to be investigated. Precambrian metamorphic rocks lying directly to the south and southeast of Taif were also investigated as possible cement rock sources, but no suitable material was found here.

    This study was performed to compare the clinical results of a minimally invasive technique for acute acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocation repair with the traditional hook plate fixation. Forty-four patients with an acute (within 2 weeks after trauma) complete AC joint separation (35 male, nine female; median age 36.2 years, range 18-56) underwent surgical repair with either a minimally invasive AC joint repair or a conventional hook plate. Functional outcome was evaluated using the Constant-Murley Score (CMS), the TAFT score and the AC joint instability score (ACJI). Radiographic evaluation was performed with bilateral anterior-posterior (a.p.) stress and Alexander views. All patients were available after a median follow-up of 32 months (range 24-51). There were no significant differences in the mean CMS, Taft score and the ACJI between the two groups. The radiological assessment revealed no significant difference in the coracoclavicular distance. In both groups, a slight loss of reduction was observed. Periarticular ossification was seen in 11 patients of the minimally invasive AC joint repair and eight patients of the hook plate group but this did not affect the final outcome. Hook plates were removed after a median interval of 11.9 weeks (range 10-13). Good clinical results can be achieved with both minimally invasive AC joint repair and hook plate fixation. However, in the hook plate group a second operation is mandatory for plate removal. III.

    A series of novel chloroquinoline based chalcones containing 1,2,3-triazole moiety were synthesized. All new compounds were characterized by {sup 1}H NMR, {sup 13}C NMR, mass spectra and single crystal X-ray diffraction study. The absorbance, fluorescence spectra and quantum yield of all compounds were investigated in methanol. Photophysical properties of 1-(1-(7-chloroquinolin-4-yl)-5-methyl-1H-1,2,3-triazol-4-yl) -3-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)prop-2-en-1-one (3a) were investigated in detail. The effect of various solvents over emission spectra of 3a was studied using Kamlet–Taft and Catalan polarity scales. The quantum yield of 3a in various solvents was also recorded. The ground state and excited state dipole moments of compound 3a were determined using solvatochromic methods. The ground state dipole moment was estimated to be 1.081 D, while excited state dipole moment was found in the range of 11.969–3.801 D. Thermal stability of compound 3a and its precursor was also investigated using thermogravimetric analysis. - Highlights: • Novel quinoline based chalcones-1,2,3-triazole derivatives were synthesized. • The photophysical properties of all compounds were investigated in methanol. • The excited state and ground state dipole moment is estimated from various methods. • Kamlet–Taft and Catalan solvatochromism was investigated.

    1993-07-01

    An estimation method, which was developed by S. W. Benson and coworkers for calculating the thermodynamic properties of organic compounds in the gas phase, has been extended to the liquid and solid phases for organic compounds at 298.15 K and 101,325 Pa. As with a previous paper dealing with hydrocarbon compounds, comparisons of estimated enthalpies of formation, heat capacities, and entropies with literature values show that extension of the Benson's group additivity approach to the condensed phase is easy to apply and gives satisfactory agreement. Corresponding values for the entropy of formation, Gibbs energy of formation and natural logarithm of the equilibrium constant for the formation reaction are also calculated provided necessary auxiliary data are available. This work covers 1512 compounds containing the elements: carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, and halogens in the gas, liquid, and solid phases. About 1000 references are provided for the literature values which are cited. §

  12. Introduction of a synthetic CO₂-fixing photorespiratory bypass into a cyanobacterium.

    2014-04-01

    Global photosynthetic productivity is limited by the enzymatic assimilation of CO2 into organic carbon compounds. Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO), the carboxylating enzyme of the Calvin-Benson cycle, poorly discriminates between CO2 and O2, leading to photorespiration and the loss of fixed carbon and nitrogen. With the advent of synthetic biology, it is now feasible to design, synthesize, and introduce biochemical pathways in vivo. We engineered a synthetic photorespiratory bypass based on the 3-hydroxypropionate bi-cycle into the model cyanobacterium, Synechococcus elongatus sp. PCC 7942. The heterologously expressed cycle is designed to function as both a photorespiratory bypass and an additional CO2-fixing pathway, supplementing the Calvin-Benson cycle. We demonstrate the function of all six introduced enzymes and identify bottlenecks to be targeted in subsequent bioengineering. These results have implications for efforts to improve photosynthesis and for the "green" production of high value products of biotechnological interest.

    This paper examines the string topology category of a manifold, defined by Blumberg, Cohen and Teleman. Since the string topology category is a subcategory of a compactly generated triangulated category, the machinery of stratification, constructed by Benson, Krause and Iyengar, can be applied in order to gain an understanding of the string topology category. It is shown that an appropriate stratification holds when the manifold in question is a simply connected compact Lie group. This last r...

In this note we use combinatorial methods to give bounds (a lower bound of (g+1)g curves, and an exponential upper bound). While the bounds for the general Farb/Leininger question are (conjecturally) weak, the results presented here are of independent interest.

When the researchers recently sprayed diluted solutions of methanol on crops at Nonomura’s Arizona farm,they found they could double yields in some cases and halve water consumption in others.

    Phosphoglucose isomerase (PGI) catalyzes the reversible isomerization of glucose-6-phosphate and fructose-6-phosphate. It is involved in glycolysis and in the regeneration of glucose-6-P molecules in the oxidative pentose phosphate pathway (OPPP).

    2006-09-01

    A predictive method, based on Benson's group additivity technique, is developed for calculating the enthalpy of formation in the solid phase, at 298.15K, of carbon-hydrogen compounds and carbon-hydrogen-oxygen compounds. A complete database compiles 398 experimental enthalpies of formation. The whole group contribution values, ring strain corrections, and nonnearest neighbor interactions evaluated are listed. Finally a comparison with Cohen's method indicates that this new estimation method leads to higher precision and reliability.

    2003-01-01

    For two centuries, scholars have pointed to consistent differences in the Hebrew of certain biblical texts and interpreted these differences as reflecting the date of composition of the texts. Until the 1980s, this was quite uncontroversial as the linguistic findings largely confirmed...... the chronology of the texts established by other means: the Hebrew of Genesis-2 Kings was judged to be early and that of Esther, Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Chronicles to be late. In the current debate where revisionists have questioned the traditional dating, linguistic arguments in the dating of texts have...... come more into focus. The study critically examines some linguistic arguments adduced to support the traditional position, and reviewing the arguments it points to weaknesses in the linguistic dating of EBH texts to pre-exilic times. When viewing the linguistic evidence in isolation it will be clear...

  8. ABOUT THE STATE OF EQUILIBRIUM BETWEEN THE TRUTHS THAT ARE SAID AND THE WORDS THAT SAY THEM: THE AESTHETICS OF NEO-REALISM AND THE SEARCH FOR WAYS OF POETICAL DOING IN THE WORKS OF CARLOS DE OLIVEIRA

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Daniel Marinho Laks

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available The article is based on the ideas of Marice Blanchot and Ezra Pound about the poetry as a condensed narrative form. The notion of an aesthetic per­ception, related to the visual and sensitive, in parallel to the perception of the text as language in the sense of communicating is presented. From this double mechanism of appreciation, imagistic-sensitive and teleologi­cal, we intend to discuss the way that the book Cantata, from Carlos de Oliveira, marks an investment in the form as an specific work of the artist that presents itself in a controversial plan to the idea of primacy of content over form, periodically affirmed as the basis of the orthodox theorization for Portuguese neo-realism. Thus, the present article understands the neo-realism not only as a strictly literary, artistic or generational movement, but as a systematic questioning on the domains of art, politics and culture.

  12. The Status of William Carlos Williams in American Modernism

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Atashi Laleh

    2016-11-01

    Full Text Available William Carlos Williams was an American poet who renounced poetic diction in favor of the unpoetic, establishing himself in American Modernism as a powerful voice distinct from such canonical contemporaries as T.S. Eliot and Ezra Pound. His attitude towards literary production was different from many of his contemporaries in that he believed ‘the idea is in the thing’ and therefore the presence of objects rather than abstractions is strongly felt in his poems. A critical survey of Williams’ poems indicates that the poet/physician observes, describes and levels criticism at his society where modernism has transformed the American identity in significant ways. In this article, American icons and popular culture are retraced in the poetry of William Carlos Williams in an effort to explain the seeming opacity of his poems.

    2016-01-01

    Staphylococcus aureus is an important pathogen, giving rise to antimicrobial resistance in cell strains such as Methicillin Resistant S. aureus (MRSA). Here we report an image analysis framework for automated detection and image segmentation of cells in S. aureus cell clusters, and explicit identification of their cell division planes. We use a new combination of several existing analytical tools of image analysis to detect cellular and subcellular morphological features relevant to cell division from millisecond time scale sampled images of live pathogens at a detection precision of single molecules. We demonstrate this approach using a fluorescent reporter GFP fused to the protein EzrA that localises to a mid-cell plane during division and is involved in regulation of cell size and division. This image analysis framework presents a valuable platform from which to study candidate new antimicrobials which target the cell division machinery, but may also have more general application in detecting morphological...

Subtitled “Lessons for America,” the 1979 book preceded the property and share price bubble of the 1980s that seemed to make Japan the largest and most dynamic economy in the world. Vogel’s conspectus of Japanese society delineated a well-functioning, nearly ideal society: excellent schools, good labor relations, capable bureaucrats, and much more. Indeed, many American business people and policymakers heeded “lessons” from Japan, whether the idea of kaizen [improvement] or industrial policy. American students flocked to Japanese language classes; the future of Japan Studies appeared rosy indeed. Vogel’s book tickled Japanese national pride and went on to sell over 700,000 copies, making it the bestselling social science book of all time in Japan...

    The manuscript "Plasma Somatomedin-C in 8- to 10-Year-Old Swimmers" by Denison and Ben-Ezra published in the first issue of Pediatric Exercise Science in 1989 was among the first to address the relationship between growth, the growth hormone (GH)/Insulin like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) axis, and exercise. Since their pioneering article, this topic has become of great interest to pediatricians and pediatric exercise researchers, and today our understanding of the effects of exercise training on the growth axis during childhood and puberty, on differences between systemic and local (i.e., muscle) responses to exercise, and our ability to use these responses to assist the adolescent competitive athlete in the evaluation of the training load have markedly improved. The aim of the present review is to summarize our current knowledge on this topic.

    Masoud, Mamdouh S.; Hagagg, Sawsan S.; Ali, Alaa E.; Nasr, Nessma M.

    The electronic absorption spectra of gallic acid and its azo derivatives have been studied in various solvents of different polarities. Multiple regression techniques were applied to calculate the regression and correlation coefficients based on an equation that relates the wavenumbers of the absorption band maxima (υmax-) to the solvent parameters; refractive index (n), dielectric constant (D), empirical Kamlet-Taft solvent parameters, π*(dipolarity/polarizability), α (solvent hydrogen-bond donor acidity) and β (solvent hydrogen-bond acceptor basicity). The fitting coefficient obtained from this analysis allows estimating the contribution of each type of interactions relative to total spectral shifts in solution. The dependence of υmax- on the solvent parameters indicates that the obtained bands are affected by specific and non-specific solute-solvent interactions.

    Five azo disperse dyes were prepared by diazotizing 4'-aminoacetophenone and p-anisidine and coupling with varies N-alkylated aromatic amines. Characterization of the dyes was carried out by using UV-vis, FTIR and 1H NMR spectroscopic techniques. The electronic absorption spectra of dyes are determined at room temperature in fifteen solvents with different polarities. The solvent dependent maximum absorption band shifts, were investigated using dielectric constant (ɛ), refractive index (n) and Kamlet-Taft polarity parameters (hydrogen bond donating ability (α), hydrogen bond accepting ability (β) and dipolarity/polarizability polarity scale (π*)). Acceptable agreement was found between the maximum absorption band of dyes and solvent polarity parameters especially with π*. The effect of substituents of coupler and/or diazo component on the color of dyes was investigated. The effects of acid and base on the visible absorption maxima of the dyes are also reported.

    Full Text Available The kinetics of oxidation of methionine (Met by benzimidazolium fluorochromate (BIFC has been studied in the presence of chloroacetic acid. The reaction is first order with respect to methionine, BIFC and acid. The reaction rate has been determined at different temperatures and activation parameters calculated. With an increase in the mole fraction of acetic acid in its aqueous mixture, the rate increases. The solvent effect has been analyzed using the Kamlet’s multi parametric equation. A correlation of data with the Kamlet–Taft solvatochromic parameters (α, β, π∗ suggests that the specific solute–solvent interactions play a major role in governing the reactivity. The reaction does not induce polymerization of acrylonitrile. A suitable mechanism has been proposed.

    1973-01-01

    The cumulative damage of aluminium alloys with different yield strength and various ductility due to seismic loads was studied. The responses of an idealized beam with a centered mass at one end and fixed at the other end to El Centro's and Taft's earthquakes are computed by assuming that the alloys are perfectly elastoplastic materials and by using numerical technique. Consequently, the corresponding residual plastic strain can be obtained from the stress-strain relationship. The revised Palmgren-Miner cumulative damage theorem is utilized to calculate the fatigue damage. The numerical results show that in certain cases, the high ductility materials are more resistant to seismic loads than the high yield strength materials. The results also show that if a structure collapse during the earthquake, the collapse always occurs in the very early stage.

    The wheat starch was investigated, before and after exposure to the argon and oxygen glow discharge plasma, without any added chemical reagents, using a novel media polarity functions method. The mechanisms of modification of starch in plasma discharge irradiation were explained using some methods such as; NMR, IR spectroscopy, Kamlet-Abboud-Taft polarity functions (specific and nonspecific interaction) of modified starch. The starch modification, by plasma treatment, shows valuable changes with plasma gas and relative ionized or active species. Characterizations indicate that argon glow discharge plasma increases crosslink in C-2 site of starch. Also, oxygen plasma discharge irradiation tends to oxidize the OH group in C-6 site of carbonyl group. Furthermore, the reported mechanisms show the highest efficiency, because of the stereo-chemical orientation of active sites of starch and plasma potential of wall in plasma media.

    Full Text Available To obtain an insight into the interactions of potential anticonvulsant drugs with their surrounding, two series of 5-methyl-5-aryl- and 5-ethyl-5-arylhydantoins were synthesized and their absorption spectra were recorded in the region from 200 to 400 nm in a set of selected solvents. The effects of solvent dipolarity/polarizability and solvent-solute hydrogen bonding interactions on the absorption maxima shifts were analyzed by means of the linear solvation energy relationship (LSER concept of Kamlet and Taft. The ratio of the contributions of specific and nonspecific solvent-solute interactions were correlated with the corresponding ADME properties of the studied compounds. The correlation equations were combined with different physicochemical parameters to generate new equations, which demonstrate the reasonable relationships between solvent-solute interactions and the structure-activity parameters.

    To monitor 3D deformations of structural vibration response, a stereovision-based 3D deformation measurement method is proposed in paper. The world coordinate system is established on structural surface, and 3D displacement equations of structural vibration response are acquired through coordinate transformation. The algorithms of edge detection, center fitting and matching constraint are developed for circular target. A shaking table test of a masonry building model under Taft and El Centro earthquake at different acceleration peak is performed in lab, 3D displacement time histories of the model are acquired by the integrated stereovision measurement system. In-plane displacement curves obtained by two methods show good agreement, this suggests that the proposed method is reliable for monitoring structural vibration response. Out-of-plane displacement curves indicate that the proposed method is feasible and useful for monitoring 3D deformations of vibration response.

    2001-01-01

    The excited state charge transfer for a series of highly fluorescent dyes containing thiophenylimidazole moiety was investigated. These systems follow the Twisted Intramolecular Charge Transfer (TICT) model. Dual fluorescence was observed for each substituted dye. X-ray structures analysis reveals a twisted ground state geometry for the donor substituted aryl on the 4 and 5 position at the imidazole ring. The excited state charge transfer was modeled by a linear solvation energy relationship using Taft's pi and Dimroth's E(sub T)(30) as solvent parameters. There is linear relation between the energy of the fluorescence transition and solvent polarity. The degree of stabilization of the excited state charge transfer was found to be consistent with the intramolecular molecular charge transfer. Excited dipole moment was studied by utilizing the solvatochromic shift method.

    Full Text Available The influence of a series of organic solvents on the UV spectra on some selected bis-Schiff base derivatives has been studied in a number of organic solvents with diverse polarities. As a part of our efforts to interpret the effects of solvent polarity and hydrogen bonding on the absorption spectra of previously synthesized bis-Schiff base derivatives, the study design was based on the linear solvation energy relationship (LSER concept using Kamlet-Taft solvatochromic parameters: π*, α and β. Correlation of spectroscopic data was carried out by means of multiple linear regression techniques. The fitting coefficient obtained from this analysis allows estimating the contribution of each type of interactions relative to total spectral shifts in solution. The dependence of (max on the solvent parameters indicated that the obtained bands were affected by specific and non-specific solute-solvent interactions.

    2011-11-01

    The effect of 15 polar solvents on absorption and fluorescence energies of a typical fluorinated azo dye, 4-(2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-pyridin-4-yl azo)-phenol, was reported for its acidic, MH, and basic, M, structures. For MH, the absorption energy is described on the basis of multi-linear equation with Taft's π* (solvent polarity) and β (hydrogen bond acceptor) parameters while the fluorescence energy varies rectilinearly with free energy of transferring the proton to the surrounding solvent, Δ Gt°. For M, the hydrogen bonding donor ability of protic solvent, α, is a predominant factor which affects the absorption energy while in aprotic solvents, the absorption energy correlates linearly with Kirkwood function. As the ability of the solvent for hydrogen bonding increases, the absorption band width will increase in parallel with the transition energy.

    The absorption and fluorescence spectra of newly synthesized aryl boronic acid derivative namely Phenyl boronic acid (PBA) have been recorded in various solvents of different polarities. The ground state dipole moment of PBA was obtained from quantum chemical calculations. Solvatochromic correlations were used to estimate the ground state (μg) and excited state (μe) dipole moments. The excited state dipole moments are observed to be greater than the ground state dipole moments. Further, the ground and excited state dipole moments are not parallel but subtend by an angle of 70°. The changes in dipole moment (Δμ) were calculated both from solvatochromic shift method and microscopic solvent polarity parameter (ETN), and the values are compared. Solvent effects on the absorption and fluorescence spectra were quantified using Reichardt's and bulk solvent polarity parameters were complemented by the results of the Kamlet-Taft treatment.

    In this paper, absorption and fluorescence spectra of vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) were recorded in solvents with different polarity, at room temperature. These vitamins' photo-physical behavior depends strongly on the solvent's nature along with different attached groups in their structures. In order to investigate the solvent-solute interactions and environmental effect on spectral variations, linear solvation energy relationships concept, suggested by Kamlet and Taft was used. Solvatochromic method was also used for measuring the ground and excited state dipole moments of these vitamins. According to our experimental results, dipole moment of these groups of vitamins in excited state is larger than ground state. Furthermore, obtained photo-physical and interactional properties of used vitamins can give important information on how this group of vitamins behaves in biological systems.

    If your employee benefit plan has more than 100 participants, chances are you've had to work your way through the audited financial statements you're required to include with your Form 5500 filing. These statements contain a wealth of information about the financial health of your plan, and understanding them is an important fiduciary responsibility. To strengthen your grasp of financial statements, this article gives an overview that will make a plan's financial statements more informative, explains their basic structure and provides information on some of the more arcane aspects (such as actuarial tables). While this article focuses on Taft-Hartley (multiemployer) plans, much of it applies to other types of employee benefit plans.

    2007-04-01

    On January 1, 1946 Emily Taft Douglas, a freshman Representative at Large for Illinois, sent a letter to Enrico Fermi. She wanted to know whether, if atomic energy was used for peaceful purposes, it might be possible to clandestinely divert some material for bombs. Douglas first learned about the bomb not quite five months before when Hiroshima was bombed. Even though she was not a scientist she identified a key problem of the nuclear age. Fermi responded with requirements to allow peaceful uses of atomic energy and still outlaw nuclear weapons. First, free interchange of information between people was required, and second, people who reported possible violations had to be protected. Fermi had lived in Mussolini's Italy and worked under the war time secrecy restrictions of the Manhattan Project. He was not optimistic that these conditions could be met. This paper discusses how Douglas came to recognize the proliferation issue and what led Fermi to his solution and his pessimism about its practicality.

A total of 19 crystal structures were determined, including unprecedented structural characterization of molybdenum(0) coordination by dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), methanol, ethyl acetate (EtOAc), acetone, and N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF). Correlation of (13)C NMR shifts with the complex geometry suggests a direct ligand-ligand interaction between DAD and O-bonded coligands with C═O and S═O double bonds, such as EtOAc, Me(2)CO, DMF, and DMSO. Unexpectedly, the solvatochromic properties of these tricarbonyl complexes [Mo(DAD)(CO)(3)L] are unfavorable for the determination of Kamlet-Taft parameters of the corresponding solvent L. Contrastingly, the UV/vis absorption of [Mo(DAD)(CO)(4)] is strongly correlated with the Kamlet-Taft parameter π*, which is shown for 22 solvents, including seven room temperature ionic liquids.

    Carbon dioxide sequestration is now considered an important component of the portfolio of options for reducing greenhouse gas emissions to stabilize their atmospheric levels at values that would limit global temperature increases to the target of 2 °C by the end of the century (Pacala and Socolow 2004; IPCC 2005, 2007; Benson and Cook 2005; Benson and Cole 2008; IEA 2012; Romanak et al. 2013). Increased anthropogenic emissions of CO2 have raised its atmospheric concentrations from about 280 ppmv during pre-industrial times to ~400 ppmv today, and based on several defined scenarios, CO2 concentrations are projected to increase to values as high as 1100 ppmv by 2100 (White et al. 2003; IPCC 2005, 2007; EIA 2012; Global CCS Institute 2012). An atmospheric CO2 concentration of 450 ppmv is generally the accepted level that is needed to limit global temperature increases to the target of 2 °C by the end of the century. This temperature limit likely would moderate the adverse effects related to climate change that could include sea-level rise from the melting of alpine glaciers and continental ice sheets and from the ocean warming; increased frequency and intensity of wildfires, floods, droughts, and tropical storms; and changes in the amount, timing, and distribution of rain, snow, and runoff (IPCC 2007; Sundquist et al. 2009; IEA 2012). Rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations are also increasing the amount of CO2 dissolved in ocean water lowering its pH from 8.1 to 8.0, with potentially disruptive effects on coral reefs, plankton and marine ecosystems (Adams and Caldeira 2008; Schrag 2009; Sundquist et al. 2009). Sedimentary basins in general and deep saline aquifers in particular are being investigated as possible repositories for the large volumes of anthropogenic CO2 that must be sequestered to mitigate global warming and related climate changes (Hitchon 1996; Benson and Cole 2008; Verma and Warwick 2011).

    Full Text Available Autonomy is of paramount importance for teaching and learning of foreign language contexts. The endless search for the information enables the learner a better competence in language skills. However, in a different context of second language learning, the foreign language learner does not have constant contact with the language when he or she is out of the classroom, unless he or she look for ways to practice what was learned. In this sense, studies on autonomy (HOLEC, 1981; LITTLE, 1991; BENSON, VOLERL, 1997; BENSON, 2001, DICKINSON, 1987; MAGNO E SILVA, 2003 show that students are aware of what skills and competences can be developed and trained according to their wills, or the interdependence of another subject, they become better learners. Consequently, they demonstrate better skills in language use. Thus, this study aims at analyzing the learning narratives of students in an intensive English language course at UFPA, discussing what students think, relating to their independent learning along their journeys as learners.
