    The WISMUT GmbH has carried out environmental remediation activities since 1991 in former GDR (German Democratic Republic) to rehabilitate the environment and landscape which have been adversely affected by decades of unrestrained mining and processing of uranium ores. It is worthy of being mentioned especially that WISMUT GmbH's sites including waste rock dump, mill tailings pond, open pit mine and water treatment facilities with an area of 3,700ha have been rehabilitated practically and extensively, and these activities are planned to terminate in 2015 except for the water treatment. For safety assessment after remediation, the value of 1mSv/y (in excess of the background level) is applied to as an individual effective dose, from the recommendation of ICRP (International Commission on Radiological Protection). This report shows a summary of environmental remediation activities carried out by the WISMUT GmbH and related regulatory laws. (author)

    This contribution to the group of low-level, intermediate, mixed and hazardous waste describes the conditioning of intermediate-level mixed waste (dose rate above 10 mSv/h at the surface) from Research Centre Juelich (FZJ). Conditioning of the waste by supercompaction is performed at Research Centre Karlsruhe (FZK). The waste described is radioactive waste arising from research at Juelich. This waste includes specimens and objects from irradiation experiments in the research reactors Merlin (FRJ-1) and Dido (FRJ-2) at FZJ. In principle, radioactive waste at Forschungszentrum Juelich GmbH is differentiated by the surface dose rate at the waste package. Up to a surface dose rate of 10 mSv/h, the waste is regarded as low-level. The radioactive waste described here has a surface dose rate above 10 mSv/h. Waste up to 10 mSv/h is conditioned at the Juelich site according to different conditioning methods. The intermediate-level waste can only be conditioned by supercompaction in the processing facility for intermediate-level waste from plant operation at Research Centre Karlsruhe. Research Centre Juelich also uses this waste cell to condition its intermediate-level waste from plant operation

    2002-01-01

    The deregulation of the power generation industry has resulted in increased competitive pressure and is forcing operators to improve plant operating economy while maintaining high levels of plant safety. A key factor to meeting this challenge is to apply a comprehensive plant life management (PLIM) approach which addresses all relevant ageing and degradation mechanisms regarding the safety concept, plant component structures and documentation, plant personnel, consumables, operations management system and administrative controls. For this reason, Framatome ANP GmbH has developed an integrated PLIM concept applicable for both new and operating plants and focusing on the safety concept, plant component structures and documentation.

    1999-01-01

    For supporting companies running nuclear power plants and for eliminating the effects of an accident, Kerntechnischer Hilfsdienst GmbH (KHG) was founded in Germany in 1977 whereas Groupe Intra (GIE) was founded in France 1988. Since the activities and responsibilities of the two companies are partly the same, they got into contact rather early, at that time with the intention to exchange experience. However, in 1993 the intensified contact resulted in signing an agreement on mutual assistance. In the following passage, a general idea is given of both organisations, the agreement on mutual assistance and the experience of cooperation they have had so far. (orig.) [de

  18. The reduction of radioactive discharges from mine workings: rehabilitation results conducted by WISMUTH GmbH

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Knoch-Weber, J.

    2002-01-01

    With operations designed to rehabilitate uranium mining operations terminated in late 1990 running for ten years now, significant progress is evident at all sites of Wismut GmbH. Of the total of DM 13 billion earmarked by the federal authorities in 1991 for the implementation of this exceptionally large environmental restoration project, about DM 6.7 billion were spent by the end of 2000, and of this DM 3.7 billion for the remediation of sites located in Eastern Thuringia and DM 3 billion for sites located in Saxony. Safe shutdown of underground mine workings remains an essential remediation task at all former mining sites. Following international standard practices, the preferred option retained called for flooding of the underground workings, i.e. cessation of water pumping and filling of mine workings by the naturally rising ground water level. Filling and sealing of mines is aimed at achieving geomechanical stabilisation of the ground surface and at reducing and/or avoiding gaseous and aerosolised radioactive discharges into the environment as a source of mine-related public exposure.

  19. Introduction of a quality management system at the Gemeinschaftskernkraftwerk Neckar GMBH (GKN)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Haug, W.; Graeber, U.

    1997-01-01

    In the course of commissioning unit II of the GKN nuclear power plant, a Quality Assurance Manual was introduced in 1988. The Quality Assurance Manual is essentially based on the quality assurance elements of KTA 1401; that is, the emphasis is on quality assurance procedures for safety relevant plant components. During the actual application of the Quality Assurance Manual, however, it soon became apparent that this one-dimensional approach to quality management is not sufficient for the efficient organization of the quality related operational processes and procedures. The management of GKN decided at the end of 1992 to carry out a revision of the Quality Assurance Manual, with the objective of using quality, within the meaning of DIN ISO 9001, as a comprehensive organizational element for all operational processes and procedures. BTB-Jansky GmbH, a consulting firm familiar with the operational processes and procedures was commissioned to revise the Quality Assurance Manual, to investigate the procedures and implement a quality management system. The introduction of the quality management system has made it possible for the quality relevant processes and procedures at GKN to be regulated comprehensively and in a systematically transparent and workable manner. The introduction of the quality management system took place within the framework of an efficiency raising programme. It becomes apparent from this that the introduction of a quality management system is able to provide economic benefits for the operator. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Alcoholism is a big health problem in Spain. The objective of this study was to find out and to analyse books published in this field in Spain. ISBN Spanish database was chosen as a tool to retrieve them. Characteristics of this database were also studied. Books dealing with alcohol and alcoholism were retrieved (the words alcohol*, alcohol*, etanol*, etili* or beber* were searched. Authors, ISBN classification, year of publication, language (of publication and original and publishers were analysed. One hundred and ninety-six books were analysed. An increase in the number of published books was observed in the last years studied; most of them were published between 1985 and 1993 (71 %. A great number (79% was written by personal authors. Most of the books (95% were published in Spanish. Twenty books (10% were translations. According to the ISBN classification, these books were grouped in 28 different topics. Most frequently covered areas were pathology, diseases and medical/therapeutical clinical practice (n=58, 30% and pharmacology/toxicology/drugs (n=43, 22%. Fourty per cent of the books was published by trade publishers, 26% by the Universities (47 -94%- were doctoral theses and 19% by public organizations. It is concluded that the ISBN Spanish database can be a good tool to retrieve Spanish books dealing with alcoholism, but some limitations, that are extensively discussed, must be taken into account when a study of these characteristics is performed using this database.

    El alcoholismo es uno de los grandes problemas para la salud que se presentan en la población española. El objetivo de este estudio fue ver si en España se publicaban libros sobre alcohol y alcoholismo y analizar las características de los mismos; asimismo, se analizaron las características de la base de datos de la Agencia Española ISBN, que se utilizó en el estudio. Se recuperaron los libros que incluyeran en algún campo: alcohol*, alkohol*, etanol*, etili

    2010-01-01

    Anlagen- und Kraftwerksrohrleitungsbau Greifswald, on behalf of Energiewerke Nord GmbH, Lubmin, plan and build a wet decontamination facility for the waste management center at Saida Bay, Russia (EZS). The plant is part of a large project with a total volume on the order of 3-digit millions funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economics and Technology. This project involves construction at Saida Bay near the port city of Murmansk of a complete waste management center and a long-term interim store for radioactively contaminated components. These components are mainly parts of decommissioned nuclear vessels and submarines whose metals, after decontamination, can be returned to economic use. The basis of the wet decontamination plant is a former AKB project for disposal and re-use of contaminated metal components of Energiewerke Nord GmbH at Lubmin, which is being adapted and developed further. The plant is to allow unrestricted re-use of the metals after surface cleaning and surface abrasion, respectively. For this purpose, the contaminated layer is removed far enough for the clearance limits under the Radiation Protection Ordinance to be met. A large fraction of the metals can be re-used after cleaning and do not have to be stored in a financially and logistically expensive process. The contract gives AKB an excellent opportunity to demonstrate its capabilities in plant construction, especially in the very sensitive area of disposal of radioactively contaminated objects.

  10. Consequences of the EU basic safety standards. Omission of the clearance for demolition/disposal with respect to the deconstruction projects of WAK GmbH

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Wittmann, S.

    2013-01-01

    The WAK GmbH's task is to decommission the nuclear installation projects at the KIT Campus Nord. These include the former Reprocessing Plant (WAK-Anlage), the Multi-purpose Research Reactor (MZFR), Research Reactor 2 (FR2), Compact Sodium-cooled Nuclear Reactor Facility (KNK), the Hot Cells (HZ) and some more small research facilities of the KIT. The buildings should be released by paragraph 29 German Radiation Protection Ordinance (StrlSchV) after the demolition of the process-engineering equipment. For this the clearance levels for 'demolition of buildings' Annex III Tab. 1 Column 10 (StrlSchV) must be reached, depth profiles were sampled on order to estimate how much material of the walls has to be removed to reach the values of the clearance levels. In a proposal (10926/12 ATO 90 SOC 501 SAN 149) on the basis of new scientific knowledge the EU plans to introduce clearance levels from the IAEA - ''Application of the Concepts of Exclusion, Exemption and Clearance RS-G-1.7''. In the proposal there are only clearance levels for an unrestricted release. Clearance levels for specific purpose (Annex III Tab. 1 Column 9a - 9d, 10 and 10a StrlSchV) are not named. A worst case scenario has been made what the possible effects are if the unrestricted release in the proposal of the basic safety standards from EU is guilty for every material. An estimation were done how much material and how much volume of building rubbish has to be removed to reach these new resulted clearance. Based on these volumes the caused additional financial costs for the final disposal for the WAK GmbH were calculated. (orig.)

    2009-11-15

    The publication explains, by means of specific measures, the management of aging in technical facilities as practiced in the plants of E.ON Kernkraft GmbH. First, the historical background is outlined and the reasons for introducing management of aging in order to limit and control factors influencing the lifetime of nuclear power plants are described. This is followed by a definition of management of aging in important safety-related facilities as against lifetime management of technical systems relevant to plant availability. This is the context in which the scope of the survey of continuous management of aging is defined in respect of physical aging. A classification is then made in accordance with the staggered requirements to be met in the quality of technical facilities. On the basis of the quality to be assured, the different component groups are assigned corresponding operational measures and explained. These continuous measures extend from failure-oriented maintenance to preventive maintenance to the integrity concept for technical installations. To document the findings and evaluate the effectiveness of the measures taken, the integration of the process is described and reference is made to continuous optimization according to PDCA principles. The explicit introduction of the process of management of aging creates a platform which allows a documentation to be accumulated of the manifold and comprehensive measures taken to control phenomena of aging in technical installations.

    Apart from the inspection outage and the 16th off-load refueling, operation of the reactor station in 2001 (mostly rated power operation according to the load dispatching center schedule) was uninterrupted and normal to a very large extent. The total gross electricity output in 2001 was 11.559.939 MWh, and net input to the public grid was 10.926.649 MWh. The station's power demand for operation was determined to be 5.5%. The averaged net efficiency was 34.4%. The following performance results are given for the operating year of 2001: Availability time ratio, 94.9%; availability factor (net), 92.2%; availability factor (VGB) 94,7%; load factor, 91.7%. The aggregate gross electricity output since start-up on 31 August 1984 (first criticality) amounts to 191.656.081 MWh, and the aggregate net output to 181.391.892 MWh. Radioactivity discharges by gaseous or liquid effluents were low in the reporting year, just like in the year before, remaining clearly below the licensed discharge values. The records of gaseous radioactive effluents show: rare gases, 1.60 E+11 Bq; aerosols, ≤ EG; iodine, 5,00 E+04 Bq. Radioactivity discharges with liquid effluents in the reporting year were measured to be 9.09 E+06 Bq (exclusive of tritium), and 1.39 E+13 Bq for tritium. The collective dose (direct read-out dosemeters) amounted to 56.62 mSv for the employed plant personnel, and 465.427 mSv for external personnel. (orig./CB) [de

    The Obrigheim nuclear power station was operated at full load from August 21 through Dec. 31, 1991, generating 1.108 GWh of electrical energy in 3.186 operating hours. The Obrigheim nuclear power station thus achieved during this period of 133 days in 1991 an operating availability of 100%. Since its commissioning in October 1968, the Obrigheim reactor station has been operating for 161.527 hours, generating 54.409 GWh (gross), and from test operation started in March 1969 up to the end of 1991, all in all 54.284 GWh have been generated in 160.747 operating hours, which means an availability time ratio of 78.2%, and a capacity factor of 80.4%. The plant was shut down in 1991 for the 21st refuelling operation including inspection and repair work, for a fictitious period of 1783 hours. In addition, power operation was stopped by an order of the supervisory authority for another 3.791 hours, so that the plant remained disconnected from the grid between Januar 1 and August 8, 1991. In the last part of the year 1991, until May 26, the plant had an excellent availability time ratio and thus contributed about 2.5% of the safe, economic and environmentally sound electricity supplies in Baden-Wuerttemberg.

    The Obrigheim nuclear power station was operated at full load during the year 1989: 7.756 operating hours produced electrical energy of 2.689 GWh. This is the fifth best annual result during Obrigheim's operating period. Since commissioning in October 1968, 154.866 hours of operation have generated 52.125 GWh (gross) and from test operation in March 1969 until the end of 1989, 154.086 hours of operation have generated 52.013 GWh. This is an availability of power of 82.1% in this period and a time availability of 84.4%. In 1988, the plant was shut down for 927 hours for the 20th refueling including testing, inspection and repair work. Apart from refueling, the plant had a good time availability and therefore contributed 5% to the safe, economical and environmentally acceptable electricity supply of the Land Baden-Wuerttemberg. The power station is of great significance to the region, both in terms of power supply and the economy. (orig.) [de

    Daniel Frampton’s work Filmosophy can be considered one of the most recent analyses of Gilles Deleuze’s theories on cinema, especially in its relationship to philosophy. But Frampton’s book is more than that. It goes beyond the French philosopher in its argument that film, analogous to philosophy can be regarded not simply as an art form but as thinking itself, a system of thoughts, ideas and memories. He writes that ‘Cinema believes in its objects just as we have a belief about our past. Fil...

The experimental activity was accompanied by theoretical studies in the field of medium energy nuclear physics. The preparation of COSY experiments concerned the realization of multipurpose facilities and other experiments. Work going on in the field of theoretical nuclear physics was strongly connected with research projects at COSY and processes induced in the proton-antiproton interaction. Through nuclear spectroscopy two-phonon octupole excitation had been identified in Gd-148. The ISIS ECR source has been used for the production of ion beams for atomic physics research. (DG)

  16. Nowcasting wind power for grid operation at RWE Transportnetz from Strom GmbH (RWE TSO)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ernst, B.; Vanzetta, J.

    2008-01-01

    This paper presented new methods of balancing power supply and demand for electricity systems that have a large share of wind power. Wind power forecasting plays a key role in integrating a large share of wind power into an electricity system, as it links the weather dependent production with the scheduled production of conventional power plants and the forecast of the electricity demand. Wind power forecasts are essential for grid operation. Since most European electricity markets focus on the day ahead market, wind balancing is also done the day ahead. A current trend is that the intra day markets are increasing in popularity and becoming more liquid. Therefore, nowcasting will play a vital role in improving wind power related economics because shorter timeframes are much easier and better to predict. Nowcasting uses actual measurements of weather and also considers power data. Many wind power prediction tools for day ahead forecasts are available. Most models have 3 common steps, notably numerical weather prediction, wind-to-power model and regional up-scaling. A comparison between recent measurements with the output of numerical weather models showed that nowcasting provides a forecast that outperforms a pure numerical weather forecast. The first results were very promising. All 3 nowcasting solutions were found to have their own unique advantages and limitations. Ongoing research will continue to improve wind power prediction. 2 refs., 3 figs

    Full Text Available In Feminist Queer Crip, Alison Kafer endeavours to re-politicise disability and its relations to gender and sexuality. This entails a thorough examination of the ways in which time can be or become 'crip' – a critical term for 'imagining bodies and desires otherwise' – with a focus on those bodies that won't grow, age, labour or reproduce according to normal standards of growth and productivity. Kafer also examines bodies that are visually reproduced, or omitted, to facilitate the production of a political agenda, and how the continual reproduction of the able-bodied norm may be challenged or undone. She writes with an acute awareness of intersectionality and her understanding of reproductive politics repeatedly challenges ableist notions of care, future, and productivity. She first identifies problems with the medical model of disability, which constructs a timeline that can only lead to cure or failure, and with the social model, which risks ignoring the lived realities of pain until 'cure becomes the future no self-respecting disability activist or scholar wants' (p. 7. Kafer then arrives at a political and relational stance, one which prioritises coalition over diagnosis and which recognises that disability 'does not occur in isolation' (p. 8. Her relational model takes into account partnerships with carers and attendants and assisting animals, and a focus on political allegiance allows room for Robert McRuer's theory of a 'non-disabled claim to crip': an expansive identity politics which extends beyond diagnostics and towards the deconstructive principle that everyone is, has or will be disabled, and so has a stake in dismantling the ablebodied ideal. The bounds of these relations move from the social to the temporal – Feminist Queer Crip suggests that disability occurs in time, or out of it, and is often marked by a rupture in the rhythm of ableist lifetimes.

    The Magnetic Materials for Energy Applications IV, held at the 2014, 143rd Annual Meeting of The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (TMS), brought together experts, young investigators, and students from this sub-discipline of materials science in order for them to share their latest discoveries and develop collaborations. This symposium, which is organized by The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society, is an important event for this community of scientists. This year, over 50 high-level technical talks were planned over the course of the event. In addition, the students and young investigators in attendance ensured the maximum benefit to the next generation’s work force in this area of study. Meeting global energy needs in a clean, efficient, secure and sustainable manner is arguably the greatest challenge facing mankind today. Magnetic materials play a critical role in myriad devices for the collection, conversion, transmission and storage of energy. For example, high performance permanent magnets are currently in great demand for the generators in wind turbines and electric motors in hybrid vehicles. Other classes of advanced magnetic materials are essential for efficient inductors/transformers and motors. Energy efficient cooling based on the magnetocaloric effect is another exciting possibility which is rapidly becoming industrially viable. The potential energy savings related to refrigeration and air conditioning based on magnetocaloric materials are highly attractive. This symposium allowed experts in areas relating to the advanced characterization, simulation, and optimization of magnetic materials to convene and present their latest research. The types of interactions afforded by this event are beneficial to society at large primarily because they provide opportunities for the leaders within this field to learn from one another and thus improve the quality and productivity of their investigations. Additionally, the presence of young investigators and students with technical interests in this field provides promise that the United States will continue to be a leader in this area. The support provided by the Department of Energy for this event directly enhanced its impact on the field by helping a number of students, young investigators, and technical experts attend and participate in this event. This symposium brought together research experts and students in the field to present the latest developments on the science surrounding advanced characterization, simulation, and optimization of magnetic materials and their use in energy applications such as generation and magnetic cooling. A strong technical program, containing more than 50 presentations was developed and organized around the following technical sessions. A strong list of invited speakers contributed to the high quality of technical content.

    Full Text Available China is one of the first countries to use marine materia medica for treating diseases. Ancient books on Chinese herbology, such as Shennong Bencaojing (Shennong’s Classic of Materia Medica, Xinxiu Bencao (Newly Revised Materia Medica and Bencao Gangmu (Compendium of Materia Medica, have detailed more than 110 marine herbs and thousands of marine herbal formulas (including those for Chinese food therapy. A great deal of information on marine herbs and their applications in medicine, collected over thousands of years, has provided an important foundation for modern research in the area of marine drugs. Thanks to these records and references, the research and development of modern Chinese marine drugs continue to evolve and mature. Since the middle of the 20th century, special attention has been paid to traditional Chinese medicine, resulting in a significant increase in the number of newly discovered marine herbs. Comprehensive surveys in the past have also created a wealth of data on the pharmacology, chemistry, biology and ecology of marine medicinal bioresources. After thousands of years of research, historical references to traditional marine herbs are scattered throughout ancient books, local chronicles, medical books, or monographs on medicinal herbs. Unfortunately, there is no systematic way to collate or scientifically verify these references. Furthermore, during the last century, scientists around the world have accumulated large quantities of information on marine natural products, but these are also scattered throughout academic books and journals.

    Hydro power plants provide comprehensive TSO purchased services for the 50-Hz-grid as well as for the 16.7-Hz-grid of Deutsche Bahn (German Railway). Within the E.ON generation portfolio in Germany hydro power plants achieve the lion's share of revenues in TSO purchased services (primary control, secondary control, minute reserve). Although the possibility to build new hydro generation capacities is limited in Germany by nature, it is possible to increase the offer for TSO purchased services. This paper explains the different aspects of TSO purchases services provided by hydro power plants. (orig.)

    1989-01-01

    The plaintiff worked 10 hours a week for the defendant and, when she became ill, sought payment of her wages under the German sick pay law. After her employer refused to pay her, citing a provision of the German law that exempted employers from paying for sickness leave when a worker works fewer than 10 hours a week, she challenged the law as violating equal pay provisions of Article 119 of the European Communities Treaty. To support her challenge she pointed to statistics showing that a far greater percentage of workers working no more than 10 hours a week were women than men. Upon referral of the case by the German court hearing it, the European Court of Justice held that Article 119 precludes national legislation permitting employers to exclude from payment of sick pay employees who do not work more than 10 hours a week if that measure affects a far greater number of men than women, unless it is shown that the legislation is justified by objective facts unrelated to any discrimination based on sex. It also ruled that it was up to the German court to determine whether the legislation in question was so justified.

  8. Book Review: Backhaus, Peter (2007: Linguistic Landscapes: A Comparative Study of Urban Multilingualism in Tokyo. Clevedon: Multilingual Matters; 158 Pages ISBN 9781853599460

    Full Text Available Backhaus examines urban multilingualism in the linguistic landscape of Tokyo, the capital city of Japan. In this monograph, the linguistic landscape is seen as a sub-discipline of sociolinguistics. The significance of this monograph to linguistic landscape research is that it represents the first comprehensive approach tackling multilingualism in the linguistic landscape and overcoming a range of methodological problems facing former studies. In this sense, Backhaus’s approach in data collection and analysis may help linguistic landscapers and researchers to undertake research in multilingualism in the linguistic landscape. The current work comprises acknowledgements, a foreword by Bernard Spolsky, six chapters, an appendix, references, and an index. While the first three chapters represent an introduction and theoretical background, the fourth chapter in turn paves the way for the application of an empirical study in Tokyo’s linguistic landscape, applied in chapter five. That chapter one discusses the examination of written language in the public space of metropolises is the bulk of Backhaus’s work.  In this respect, the author (p.1 refers to previous studies such as Halliday (1972, who considers the city not only a place of talk, but also a place of writing and reading.  At the same time, this work focuses on ‘urban language contact in the written medium: the languages of the signs’. Backhaus (p.1 holds: Every urban environment is a myriad of written messages on public display: office and shop signs, billboards, and neon advertisements, traffic signs, topographic information and area maps, emergency guidance and political poster campaigns, stone inscriptions, and enigmatic graffiti discourse. The author maintains that these messages contribute to the making of the linguistic landscape of any given place. In chapter two, Semiotic Background and Terminology, Backhaus gives an introduction to the main features of language use on signs, arguing that the examination of multilingualism on signs in the public space differs from other modes of communication in written and spoken contexts. In addition, the writer discusses different definitions and interpretations of the term linguistic landscape and senses and types of the term ‘sign’.  After Itagi and Singh (2002, the author (p.10 draws a distinction between the noun ‘linguistic landscape’ and the gerund ‘linguistic landscaping’. While the former refers to ‘the planning and implementation of actions pertaining to language on signs’, the latter relates to ‘the result of these actions’. Throughout his monograph, Backhaus maintains a distinction between these two terms as cited above. As maintained by Backhaus (p.12, only the paper introduced by Landry and Bourhis (1997 established this field of study as a coherent discipline, even though several previous studies employed linguistic landscape research. This is mainly apparent in Backhaus’s expansion upon the definition of survey items suggested by Landry and Bourhis (1997.   In chapter three, Previous Approaches to the Linguistic Landscape: An Overview, Backhaus gives a comprehensive overview of previous linguistic landscape studies conducted in different urban settings, including Brussels (Tulp, 1978, Montreal (Monnier, 1989, Paris and Dakar (Calvet, 1990,1994, and Lira, a town in Uganda  (Reh, 2004. In light of these studies, the author notices that the language policy of the state does not indicate which code(s prevail(s in the public space, whose language(s is /are mainly manifested in language practices on nonofficial signs.. The author also discusses the methodological issues followed in the above studies to arrive at a congruent methodological framework aiming at examining multilingualism from a sociolinguistic point of view. In the light of the methodology followed in the abovementioned studies, Chapter four outlines the main concerns that envelope the sociolinguistics of the linguistic landscape. Interestingly, the chapter aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice by introducing three research questions aiming at directing the current work. These research parameters include linguistic landscape by whom, for whom, and the general language situation. To accomplish this study, the writer applies both qualitative and quantitative procedures while gathering and analysing data. According to the writer, this chapter attempts to find a coding scheme suitable for carrying out a sociolinguistic study in the linguistic landscape and devoid of methodological problems. In chapter five, the author (p.64 introduces a frame for studying the linguistic landscape and applies a fine-grained coding scheme to a corpus of signs. According to Backhaus, a sound data collection procedure requires two conditions: the determination of the geographical limits of the survey area and the unit of analysis. Backhaus investigated the linguistic landscape of 29 survey areas of the Yamanote Line, a circular railway line connecting a number of major city centres in Tokyo. These stations represent a multi-layered picture of the city centre in the sense that they include very busy and less crowded districts. The boundaries of each survey area  were specified as consisting of an area located between the traffic lights of two consecutive intersections , wherein the poles of traffic lights represent the end of any given survey area. The survey items were also thoroughly defined (p.66: A sign was considered to be any piece of written text within a spatially definable frame. The underlining definition is physical, not semantic. It is rather broad, including anything from the small handwritten sticker attached to a lamp-post to huge commercial billboards outside a department store. Items such as push and pull stickers at entrance doors, lettered foot mats, or botanic explanation plates on trees were considered signs, too. In analysing data collected, the first step is to categorise countable items into monolingual and multilingual signs. Backhaus has excluded monolingual Japanese signs from data collected because he wants to examine urban multilingualism in Tokyo. A sign will be considered multilingual if it contains two languages or more, say Japanese and English (p.67. Backhaus presents a congruent methodology to study the linguistic landscape by introducing research parameters and analytical categories. These research questions include ‘linguistic landscaping by whom?, linguistic landscaping for whom?, and linguistic landscape quo vadis?’. These guiding questions are analysed according to nine criteria: languages contained, combinations, top-down and bottom-up forces, geographic distribution, code preference, part writing, visibility, idiosyncrasies, and layering (p.65. In chapter six, the writer closes his book by summarising the findings of the Tokyo sample, which are guided by the questions cited above. It reveals that nonofficial agencies are almost the main responsible for the majority of multilingual signs in the linguistic landscape of Tokyo, whereas official forces participate in the construction of multilingualism on signs by less than 30 per cent. The presence of complete and partial translations and transliterations on signs is very useful for the readers from the foreign and Japanese populations. It was noticed that English is generally confined to slogans, titles, and business names, while Japanese relates to more specific information. The general linguistic situation reveals the impact of language interference from Japanese into English, which is apparent in the number of linguistic idiosyncrasies noticed in the linguistic landscape. In comparing the older and newer versions of signs, there is a noticeable preference toward the use of foreign languages at the expense of Japanese, which shows signs of multilingualism in Tokyo’s linguistic landscape. However, Japanese will be the predominant language at least in the near future.    As pointed out throughout, Backhaus presents a congruent methodological approach, which has added new dimensions to the existing field of linguistic landscape. More specifically, Backhaus identifies three guiding research questions: Linguistic Landscape by whom? Linguistic landscape for whom?  Linguistic landscape quo vadis?. At the same time, his definition of the unit of analysis as described above contributed greatly to linguistic landscape research. Although Backhaus relies on former studies, Backhaus has created analytical categories neglected by previous studies, especially linguistic idiosyncrasies, and uses his own terminology, particularly ‘part writing’ with its main types adopted from the field of musicology: homophonic, mixed, polyphonic, monophonic signs. The same notions with the exception of monophonic signs have been implemented by Reh (2004, but the terminological designations are different. I wonder why Backhaus uses the term ‘polyphonic signs’, which might be replaced by code mixing or switching in that it may be mainly subdivided into intra-sentential code-switches and inter-sentential code-switches. This work also counts on the observations made by Scollon and Scollon (2003, especially those on code prominence and layering. For example, code preference as an analytical category in Backhaus’ quantitative study relies on placement and size in case that there is a conflict, font size outweighs order.  As far as my current project is concerned, the relevance of this work comes from the methodological considerations provided, which will help to expand upon Backhaus’ paradigm to apply in the linguistic landscape of urban Jordan. In other words, we will adapt and build upon this methodological framework to devise a coding scheme suitable for the linguistic landscape of Jordanian cities.

    Full Text Available The global economic crisis had major social and political impact on European societies. The political consequences of the crisis mainly stem from rising unemployment, the freezing or cuts of public sector pay, declining purchasing power, pessimism about future developments and perceptions of bad governance. In this context, a new wave of protest has spread across Europe as a reaction to the austerity measures adopted during the economic crisis. Governments’ inability to deal with the crisis has generated in many places anxiety, which then turned into popular anger. People who have been hard hit by the crisis placed most of the blame with incumbent governments and condemned the corruption and lack of political responsibility of the political class in general.

    Full text: To commemorate its first 50 years, the International Atomic Energy Agency is today launching a photographic history of the organization and its work. A large volume, elegantly produced, it offers an overview of the Agency that is both attractive and educational. The book explores in pictures the balance between the IAEA's work as a nuclear watchdog and rigorous advocate for safety and security and its mission in helping developing countries use advanced science for humanitarian benefit. Issued at a time of unprecedented international interest in the Agency, it addresses the fundamental concepts that underlie the work of the IAEA and its 'Atoms for Peace' mission. It also describes the historical evolution of the IAEA, illustrating the successes and challenges that have shaped the organization over the past half century. Notable milestones covered include US President Eisenhower's Atoms for Peace speech, the establishment of safeguards regimes, the international response to the Chernobyl accident and the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005. Ongoing efforts, in fields ranging from sustainable energy production to human health and agricultural productivity, further detail the diversity and complexity of the IAEA's contribution - as IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei explains in the foreword - to 'the betterment of the human family.'

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT On Inequality is a short book that skillfully handles a challenging topic. As its title suggests, its focus is a major theme in contemporary theories of justice: equality. Contrary to what one might expect, however, Frankfurt's critique of equality is not grounded in libertarian arguments or an ideal of the minimal state. Rather, it aims to clarify a cluster of alleged conceptual confusions about equality as a constitutive moral value.

    Casting scientific or mathematical research activity in the form of programmes with a view to gauging its progressiveness is no straightforward business, as Imre Lakatos discovered. The category theory "programme", now over half a century old, has certainly become too large to be judged as a united enterprise whose members share a common mission. Speaking about Bayesian statistics, Edwin Jaynes could imagine a time when its methods had become so pervasive that its practitioners found their common interests insufficiently extensive to cause them to gather together for conferences, just as the time when researchers could meet up to discuss the uses of Fourier transforms is long past. Well, category theory has already progressed a certain way towards this stage. Its penetration into the various branches of mathematics has been uneven, but in some cases it has been profound. For instance, any algebraic topologist or algebraic geometer just must use a considerable amount of category theory as part of their job. It has also made inroads into logic and, from there, to theoretical computer science (see e.g., Taylor, 1999). Its reach even extends to mathematical physics where, for example, we find topological quantum field theories defined in terms of functors between categories (Atiyah, 1988), and the intriguing prospect that higher-dimensional categories will feature in subsequent developments.

    The objects of the empirical science known as particle physics are not like objects ordinarily conceived. Physicists' particles can enter states strangely entangled with those of other particles; they can obey statistics which suggest that they lack genidentity; their properties (some think) are created in measurement, or (others think) can only be limned from the symmetries of the theory describing them. 'The implications of contemporary physical theories for the debate on the nature of objects' provides 'the central theme' (p. 4) of Interpreting Bodies, editor Elena Castellani's new collection of essays. Contributions to the volume vary dramatically in vintage (Born's and Reichenbach's are well into middle age; others appear here for the first time); in approach (the collection includes Giuliano Toraldo diFrancia's nine-page history of the object concept from Democritus to d'Espagnat, Peter Mittelstaedt's discussion of the Kantian constitution of quantum objects, and Giulo Peruzzi's explication of the scattering cross section and its role in experimental particle physics); and in intended audience. Lacking the space to treat each contribution in turn, I will focus on those dealing with the problem of the One and the Many.

    Repair methods with conventional welding technique are not promising as a preventative measure mostly due to cost and time issues. With the provided repair method, the AREVA adhesive technology, it is possible to stop existing leaks and work as a prophylactic measure against future penetration from the concrete side of the pool. This technique can cover the failure mechanisms from weld failures over corrosion to mechanical stresses. Another advantage of the adhesive technology is the possibility of using remote-controlled underwater repair methods which are particularly beneficial in the repair of leaks in spent fuel pools. Extensive laboratory testing and longstanding successful experience in nuclear power plants have proved the suitability of the adhesive technology as active and proactive methods to minimize leakages in pools.

    SVZ Schwarze Pumpe is a plant for production of synthesis gas from hydrocarbon-containing materials and for synthesis gas utilisation as chemical feedstock and for power generation. In the trial operation phase of 1992-1994 and the commercial operation since 1995, about 372,800 t of solid waste were processed (about 255,100 t of which were waste platics), and about 372,800 t of liquid and pasty waste. The waste composition may vary considerably. Since 1995, gasification of preprocessed domestic waste has been an area of particular interest. In all cases, pollutant emissions were found to be below the legal specifications. The synthesis gas has a high degree of purity, while the gasifier slag is classified as class I waste as specified in the TA Siedlungsabfall (Technical Code for Domestic Waste Management). (orig./SR) [Deutsch] Der Geschaeftszweck des SVZ Schwarze Pumpe besteht in der Herstellung von Synthesegas aus kohlenwasserstoffhaltigen Einsatzstoffen und in der stofflichen und energetischen Nutzung des Werkstoffes Synthesegas. In umfangreichen Mess- und Betriebsfahrten wurden in den Jahren 1992-1994 und im kommerziellen Betrieb seit 1995 ca. 372.800 t feste Abfallstoffe, davon ca. 255.100 t Altkunststoffe, und ca. 436.800 t fluessige und pastoese Abfaelle verarbeitet. Die Abfaelle werden in Mischungen, die in weiten Grenzen variiert werden koennen, eingesetzt. Einen besonderen Entwicklungsschwerpunkt seit 1995 stellt die Vergasung von speziell aufbereitetem Hausmuell dar. In allen Betriebsfaellen konnte ein sehr umweltvertraeglicher Betrieb nachgewiesen werden. Das erzeugte Synthesegas ist extrem gereinigt, die Vergaserschlacken erfuellen die Anforderungen an die Deponieklasse I der TA Siedlungsabfall. (orig./SR)

    In addition to being a thorough and timely treatment of unity in science, Morrison's book is particularly noteworthy for the kind of inquiry it represents. In the context of current debates in the history and philosophy of science, Morrison has managed to chart a very persuasive middle path through potentially contentious extreme positions. Also, by taking an approach that is at once conceptual and historical, she has produced a book that truly addresses both the history and philosophy of modern science; it allows the reader to interact with key philosophical questions in addition to well researched and well documented historical accounts. These accounts, which function as case studies, are provided in Chapters 3-6. They are valuable both in-and-of themselves, and as examples which illustrate Morrison's main philosophical thesis.

    The Catalogue of Meteorites has a long tradition and is one of the most important reference publications for meteorite researchers and cosmochemists. The first Guide to the Catalogue of Meteorites was published in 1881 by Lazarus Fletcher, Keeper of Minerals at the British Museum (Natural History), and contained a description of the nature of meteorites and a list of the 361 samples then in the museum's collection. Over the past century, this list was expanded to include more than just the meteorites that were in the possession of the British Museum; an attempt was made to include names, location, and other information on all meteorites known at the time. Thus, the first Catalogue of Meteorites was published in 1923 by G. T. Prior. His successor at the British Museum was Max H. Hey, who published appendixes to Prior's Catalogue, as well as the second and third editions of the Catalogue of Meteoritesin 1953 and 1966. An appendix to the third edition was published in 1977. Traditionally, the Catalogue contained a listing of all the specimens in any of the world's meteorite collections, in museums or otherwise. With the discovery of large numbers of meteorites in Antarctica, starting in 1969, the publishers of the Catalogue encountered some problems, as hundreds-even thousands-of specimens, many of which may be paired, were brought back from Antarctica from the 1970s onward. The fourth edition of the Catalogue, published in 1985 by Andrew Graham, Alex Bevan, and Robert Hutchison, was the first to deal with this sudden inflation of the number of meteorites. Because most of the thousands of Antarctic meteorites (except the obviously more unusual types, such as irons and certain achondrites) had not been studied in any detail, the fourth edition of the Catalogue wisely limited the entries of these meteorites (in some cases, only those with masses larger than 500 g were included in the Catalogue). The fourth edition of the Catalogue was a handsome and handy reference book that provided a quick introduction and a wealth of information (or, often, the only information) on a large number of meteorites.

    The relish of scientists for, and funding of research on, seagrasses probably stems from two sources: seagrasses are a defined taxonomic unit often growing in monotypic stands, making academic study tractable; and, seagrasses are increasingly recognized globally as important components of shallow water systems, and potential key indicators of ecosystem health. The 26 chapters covering ~700 pages provide a long overdue treatment of the state of the science on seagrasses. This book is an honest, thorough and heroic attempt to compile a mass of knowledge by a herd of 80 researcher “cats” representing 15 countries. The chapters “…provide the necessary background on what brought each topic where it is today and indicate where future research needs to go to advance the field to the next level.” Seagrass science is in its infancy, but, as demonstrated, is advancing rapidly. Volumes with recent topical treatments of seagrasses include World Atlas of Seagrasses (Green and Short 2003), Seagrass Ecology (Hemminga and Duarte 2000), and Global Seagrass Research Methods (Short and Coles 2001) are useful compliments to this book.

    Full Text Available Describing the mathematical development underlying current and classical methods of geolocating electronic systems that are emitting, this newly revised and greatly expanded edition of a classic Artech House book offers practical guidance in electronic warfare target location. The Second Edition features a wealth of additional material including new chapters on time delay estimation, direction finding techniques, and the MUSIC algorithm. This practical resource provides you with critical design information on geolocation algorithms, and establishes the fundamentals of existing algorithms as a launch point for further algorithm development. You gain an in-depth understanding of key target location methods that you can effectively apply to your work in the field. You discover triangulation algorithms that offer a highly efficient way to geolocate targets when the real estate on the sensor systems is adequate to support an antenna array. The book also presents quadratic geolocation techniques that can be implemented with extremely modest antennas — frequently a single dipole or monopole. Moreover, this authoritative volume details methods for geolocating the source of high frequency signals with a single sensor site.

It has become unacceptable for those responsible for corporate governance to claim, "I didn't know". Corporate Fraud and Internal Control focuses on the appropriateness of the design of the system of internal controls in fraud risk mitigation, as well as the mechanisms to ensure effective implementation and monitoring on an ongoing basis.

    Ashraf M. Salama and Florian Wiedmann, the authors, approach such a developmental case by a strong conceptual organization of research and a rich analytical methodology that unveils morphological transformations. While the title of the book promotes Doha, the book is essential for every planner, architect, and academic to read and explore its scientific and empirical methodologies, and their implementation. In essence these can be utilized in other cities of similar vision and pace of growth. This solid production delivers an overview study and analytical investigations on architecture and urbanism of a city, which competes with other cities in the region such as Dubai and Abu-Dhabi. The book interrogates three main questions: (1 how the city’s urban structure was shaped and managed from its beginning until its being a key player in the global arena; (2 what are the models of governance utilized to transform the city’s built environment and its physical image; and (3 how place-making and city-branding mechanisms define the city’s image and impact on the urban development tendencies and their relationship the city’s inhabitants.

    The study of Einstein's theory of general relativity experienced a renaissance beginning in the early 1960s. Prior to this resurgence of interest, general relativity was isolated from mainstream physics-admired for its elegance, perhaps, but only from a distance. The generation of students who risked their careers by entering this neglected field has now reached the age of festschrifts. In June of 2000, Caltech hosted ;Kipfest,; a conference in honor of Kip Thorne's 60th birthday. Thorne started graduate school at Princeton in 1962 and began research in general relativity under John Wheeler's guidance in the heady early days of the renaissance. Since then, he has played a prominent role in general relativity: as co-author of the influential textbook Gravitation, as a leader in research regarding astrophysical applications of Einstein's theory, and as a co-founder and chief advocate for the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO), to mention a few aspects of his far-reaching work. ;Kipfest; included 14 speakers discussing fields to which Thorne has contributed. But the conference also reflected Thorne's long-standing commitment to communicating science to a general audience: Igor Novikov, Stephen Hawking, Timothy Ferris, and Alan Lightman gave popular talks at ;Kipfest,; with Thorne himself tricked into delivering a fifth. The Future of Spacetime gathers adaptations of these five lectures, along with a lengthy introductory essay by Richard Price.

    Full Text Available Carlos Martínez Assad publicó Los rebeldes vencidos. Cedillo contra el Estado cardenista en 1990. En ese trabajo, el ahora investigador emérito por la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México y el Sistema Nacional de Investigadores dio cuenta, mediante un meticuloso análisis de fuentes primarias, de la última rebelión que conmovió al México contemporáneo. La investigación de Martínez Assad tuvo muchos méritos, aunque tal vez el mayor de ellos fue el hecho de analizar el movimiento de Saturnino Cedillo en sus aspectos económicos, sociales, políticos e ideológicos. Con la seriedad académica que siempre lo caracteriza, el ahora también Premio Nacional de Ciencias y Artes 2013 examinó los momentos más importantes en la vida del cacique potosino: su incursión en el torbellino revolucionario (1912, su apoyo al Plan de Agua Prieta (1920, su alianza con los gobiernos de Álvaro Obregón (1920-1924 y Plutarco Elías Calles (1924-1928, y su enfrentamiento final con el gobierno de Lázaro Cárdenas (1934-1940. De esta manera, Martínez Assad demostró que Cedillo, al rechazar el socialismo, las huelgas y el ejido, fue expuesto por el Estado cardenista —empeñado en lograr una centralización política y administrativa— como aliado de las compañías petroleras expropiadas el 18 de marzo de 1938 y portavoz del fascismo alemán en México.

    This book consists of a collection of 18 articles by students, colleagues, and friends of the theoretical chemist/philosopher of science, Hans Primas. Although the articles are written in honor of Primas, the editors state that the collection is not a Festschrift, but that it simply 'takes up some of the discussions that Primas has initiated or inspired' (p. 2). Due to the breadth of Primas' intellectual interests, the result is a highly eclectic collection of articles, whose topics range through (i) the historical development of experimental NMR spectroscopy, (ii) Jungian psychology, (iii) a defense of determinism in the rationalistic tradition of Leibniz, to (iv) a mathematical exposition of 'operator trigonometry.' However, since our space-and my expertise-is limited, the following comments will be restricted to those articles that deal with the mathematical and conceptual foundations of physics, a subject to which Primas has made a large contribution.

    Some people may be surprised to learn that John von Neumann's work on the foundations of quantum physics went far beyond what is contained within the pages of his Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics (MFQM) (von Neumann, 1955). However, this narrow focus often ignores von Neumann's later work on quantum logic and what are now called in his honor, von Neumann algebras. This volume honoring von Neumann's contributions to physics is unique in that, while it contains 12 papers that examine various aspects of von Neumann's work, it also contains two of his previously unpublished papers and some of his previously unpublished correspondence.

    Full Text Available Poised between soil and sky, forest canopies represent a critical point of exchange between the atmosphere and the earth, yet until recently, they remained a largely unexplored frontier. For a long time, problems with access and the lack of tools and methods suitable for monitoring these complex bioscopes made canopy analysis extremely difficult. Fortunately, canopy research has advanced dramatically in recent decades. Methods in Forest Canopy Research is a comprehensive overview of these developments for explorers of this astonishing environment. The authors describe methods for reaching the canopy and the best ways to measure how the canopy, atmosphere, and forest floor interact. They address how to replicate experiments in challenging environments and lay the groundwork for creating standardized measurements in the canopy — essential tools for understanding our changing world.

    There are several definitions of symbiosis, but in this book it involves an association where one organism (the symbiont) lives within or on the body of another organism (the host), regardless of the actual effect on the host. Some symbioses are mutualistic, some parasitic, and some involve commensalism, in which one partner derives some benefit without either harming or benefiting the other. This is the second volume in this exciting and rapidly advancing topic by these editors. The first volume was published in 2003 and during the intervening three years additional data have been produced that make this book a useful addition to your library. The first book provided chapters that provided an overview of insect symbiosis, discussions of the primary aphid symbiont Buchnera and other aphid symbionts, symbiosis in tsetse, symbionts in the weevil Sitophilus , the possible use of paratransgenic symbionts of Rhodnius prolixis to prevent disease transmission, bark beetle and fungal symbiosis, symbionts of tephritid fruit flies, symbionts affecting termite behavior, an overview of microsporidia as symbionts (parasites?) of insects, an overview of a newly discovered bacterium that causes sex-ratio distortion in insects and mites (from the Bacteroides group), symbionts that selectively kill male insects, and several chapters on the ubiquitous endosymbiont Wolbachia

    The communication- and trade-mark politics gain more importance in these times of increasing competition. Custom-made market strategies - for customer groups which increasingly specialize - have to be developed in order to be able to successfully act in this market i.e. to successfully maintain the current market position. Total customer satisfaction - which up to now was the non-plus-ultra for the energy branch - has become insufficient, the goal now is called 'customer loyalty'. And the energy industry has to strive for this goal, i.e. they have to win the customer as an 'active participant', as a multiplier on an increasingly stronger fought-for-market. In order to achieve this, clear strategic concepts are necessary as well as the continuous control of the communicating effect of the instruments used. (orig.) [German] Kommunikations- und Markenpolitik gewinnen im verschaerften Wettbewerb an Bedeutung. Massgeschneiderte Marketingstrategien - fuer sich zunehmend differenzierende Kundengruppen - muessen entwickelt werden, um zukuenftig erfolgreich am Markt agieren zu koennen bzw. die Marktposition behaupten zu koennen. Hohe Kundenzufriedenheit - vor kurzem noch das non plus ultra der Energiebranche - ist bereits nicht ausreichend, das Ziel heisst 'Kundenloyalitaet'. Um diese muessen sich die Energiedienstleistungsunternehmen bemuehen, d.h. sie muessen den Kunden als 'aktive Vollreferenz', als Multiplikator auf einem zunehmend staerker umkaempften Markt gewinnen. Dazu notwendig sind klare strategische Konzepte und die laufende Kontrolle der Kommunikationswirkung der eingesetzten Instrumente. (orig.)

Cinco de los artículos se ocupan de los prolegómenos del bienio que ella juzga “trascendental” y que versan sobre el estado de la burocracia y del clero del virreinato de Santafé antes del inicio del movimiento revolucionario, sobre el contrapunteo de La Habana y Santiago de Cuba respecto del discurso fidelista, y sobre la crisis de 1808 en la vida política mexicana.

    This 27-chapter volume is a comprehensive review of the petroleum geology of a significant Southeast Asian oil-producing country. The authors are predominantly from Petronas (20) with contributions by Shell (2) and the University of Malaya (1). The whole manuscript was reviewed by Dick Selley and coordinated by Leong Khee Meng. Foremost among the authors is Dr Mazlan Hj. Madon, whose byline is found on 14 chapters and whose guiding hand can be recognised throughout the book. In addition to in-house reports, Petronas has drawn on oil company work, resulting both from exploration activities on PSCs and from regional assessments, based on public domain and proprietary data. The companies involved include Esso, Shell, Mobil, Sun, Texaco, Conoco, Oxy, Triton, OPIC, Idemitsu, Nippon Oil, Elf, Hall-Houston and Western Mining. The volume is a remarkable tribute to the progress made by the Malaysian National Oil Company in the 25 years since the granting of its initial charter in 1974.

However, an inquisitive reader must ask the following questions: Can Kuang-i chi, a medieval collection of tales of encounters with the other world by the minor T’ang Dynasty official Tai Fu 戴孚 (fl. 760-780, chin-shih 757, be used for the purpose of the study of religious culture? How? and to what extent? What approaches would be effective in inquiring such a text and what kinds of conclusions can be drawn? Though not explicitly setting forth these questions, Dudbridge’s work serves as answers to them through explicitly defining the nature of Kuang-i chi to his study, discarding conventional categories and establishing new ones in his analysis, and associating Kuang-i chi to the “vernacular,” instead of official, or “centralized,” religious culture (p.63-4. Using a sharp historical focus on the collection, Dudbridge concentrates on the dynamics of change in religious practices of T’ang Dynasty that is rooted and reflected in such a vernacular religious culture....

The volume is of high value to anyone who is interested in the diversity that underlies the unifying term of “post-communist media.” Most of its authors rely on rich data collected throughout lengthy periods of time on the territory of Central and Eastern Europe, which allows us to see not only the current state of “Eastern” media, but its development throughout time.

En América Latina desde la segunda mitad del siglo XIX, la vida aldeana se vio sacudida por los influjos de la Revolución Industrial, que transformó definitivamente la historia del transporte en esta parte del mundo. Colombia no fue ajena a esta influencia y con igual ruido se sintieron los influjos de la revolución industrial. En el campo de los transportes, se introdujeron la navegación a vapor por el río magdalena, y los ferrocarriles; también aparecieron telégrafos, alumbrado público y el servicio de correo. Este proceso transformó la vida urbana, especialmente en las primeras tres décadas del siglo XX, cuando las ciudades principales como Bogotá, Medellín y Cali experimentaron una verdadera transformación de su morfología urbana. El autor presenta un caso de ellos: el tranvía en Medellín.

    Full Text Available  El libro Teaching Geography Creatively, editado por Stephen Scoffham, supone una fuente de recursos y orientaciones didácticas fundamentadas en investigaciones recientes de gran interés para aquellos docentes de Infantil y Primaria que hayan decidido apostar por la creatividad en sus aulas. Estas orientaciones no solo buscan la motivación del alumnado sino que, en la línea del constructivismo, defienden la necesidad de fomentar un pensamiento crítico en ellos para construir aprendizajes con sentido y conectados realmente con su mundo. Se pretende así acabar con la idea que asocia la enseñanza de la geografía con el aprendizaje memorístico y pasivo, dentro de cuatro paredes. Tal y como hacen otros títulos de la serie en la que se integra, Learning to Teach in the Primary School, esta monografía defiende también una comunicación bidireccional en la transmisión del conocimiento (alumno-profesor, alumno-alumno y un currículo flexible que permita un aprendizaje creativo, donde el centro de atención sea el proceso de enseñanza-aprendizaje y no los resultados.

    Full Text Available The CD-ROM Excavating Occaneechi Town: Archaeology of an Eighteenth-Century Indian Village in North Carolina has become a familiar site on my desk in the last few months. Not, I admit, because I have been avidly scouring its content on a regular basis, but because I have been putting off writing this review. A wealth of information can be an intimidating thing.

  4. Risk and opportunity management for municipal power suppliers incorporated under German law as a private limited liability company or as a public corporation; Risiko- und Chancenmanagement bei kommunalen Energieversorgungsunternehmen in der privatwirtschaftlichen Form der GmbH und AG in Deutschland

    Art. 53 of the Law on the Principles of Budget Law requires municipal power suppliers to establish and validate an early risk detection system: Efforts at liberalisation and deregulation in the European Union over the past years have brought much change to the landscape of risks and opportunities. The purpose of the present study was to depict the state of progress in implementing early risk detection systems and find answers to practical questions facing municipal utilities in developing a modern risk and opportunity management system (ROMS). Most utilities to date have little to show in the way of a ROMS. Given the continued rise in competitive pressure, price changes for energy, increasing regulatory intensity and the requirement to meet climate protection targets in Germany it appears that the risks and opportunities ahead can hardly be discerned and much less coped with without an appropriate system for uniform management of risks and opportunities.

    Full Text Available Wenn über Kriminalität gesprochen wird, scheint es sich um ein reines Männerthema zu handeln. Sind die Frauen wirklich weniger straffällig als die Männer? Die Frau als Straftäterin wird in der Literatur vernachlässigt. In der modernen Kriminologie erscheint die Frau fast nur in der Opferrolle. Die angeführte Studie befaßt sich mit den Fragen, die sich aus dieser Problematik ergeben. Die Straffälligkeit der Frauen wird einer multidisziplinären Analyse unterzogen, traditionelle und moderne Erklärungsansätze werden systematisiert und in Verbindung zueinander gebracht. Anhand von Statistiken werden sowohl die Anzahl der Straftäterinnen als auch die Delikte, die scheinbar frauentypisch sind, untersucht und zwischen den Modellen der mediterranen und nordeuropäischen Länder verglichen. Es überrascht, dass es so gut wie keine internationalen oder nationalen Programme zur Verbrechensvorbeugung bezüglich der Frauenkrimialität gibt. Scheint es doch so, dass der Staat als einzige Antwort auf dieses Phänomen die Strafverfolgung kennt (traditionelles Strafrecht. Untersuchungen in Strafanstalten zeigen aber, dass die Frauen in den meisten Fällen aufgrund ihres sozialen Umfelds und ihrer geringeren Chancen auf Ausbildung und Ausübung eines Berufes zur Straftäterin werden. Eine effiziente Kriminalpolitik müsste mit der Ungleichbehandlung der Frauen aufräumen und eine adäquate Sozialisierung für die Frauen schaffen, die oft auf sich gestellt und mit der Versorgung ihrer Familie überfordert sind. Es stellt sich heraus, dass, wenn über ein vereintes Europa gesprochen wird, die Wirklichkeit einer gemeinsamen europäischen Kriminalpolitik noch weit entfernt ist. Außerdem wird die Ernsthaftigkeit dieses Vorhabens bezweifelt, da zuviele Unterschiede, Differenzen und Vorbehalte unter den europäischen Mitgliedsstaaten bestehen. Es handelt sich eher um ein fadenscheiniges Agieren der Politiker.

    Full Text Available El libro revisa y analiza algunos de los factores que influyen en el desarrollo económico regional y nacional, tales como: formación de clusters, redes empresariales y los impactos del crecimiento económico sobre el medio ambiente. La obra reúne un conjunto de ocho estudios que abordan diversos enfoques de análisis de los determinantes del crecimiento de las manufacturas y de otros ramos económicos significativos del país, incluye también otros de naturaleza local donde confluyen procesos socio territoriales que influyen en el crecimiento y desarrollo económico regional. Los argumentos de los autores principalmente se sustentan en modelos econométricos, y también en análisis cualitativo. El libro se divide en tres partes, Productividad y externalidades está formada por dos capítulos, Redes empresariales y clusters conformada por tres capítulos y Sustentabilidad ambiental y desarrollo regional compuesta por tres capítulos. Los coordinadores del libro Ruiz, Tapia, Vite y Gomis, trataron de hacer una integración de los temas, aunque de inicio reconocen que este esfuerzo de integración es aún incompleto. La mayor parte de las contribuciones son producto de las tesis de obtención de grado de egresados y de sus tutores en el postgrado de El Colegio de la Frontera Norte. En las páginas finales del libro se da una breve presentación de la trayectoria académica de cada uno de los autores que hicieron un aporte en la obra.

    Full Text Available This is the first dictionary compiled specifically for rock art research. It follows the publication of an English rock art glossary in the journal Rock Art Research in November 2000. To be adopted by the International Federation of Rock Art Organisations (IFRAO, it has been translated by some of the world’s foremost scholars in the field into Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian. In a discipline that has hitherto been without an agreed terminology, even communication within a single language has been difficult. The proliferation of idiosyncratic terminologies of often academically isolated researchers, many of which have been used by only one scholar, has not only retarded progress and the transference of knowledge, it has led to countless misunderstandings and even personal feuds. The purpose of this dictionary is to create a single terminological standard as well as a cross-lingual uniformity of usage. It focuses particularly on scientific aspects, technical applications and epistemological rigour. It does not set out to create a terminological straitjacket for the discipline, but a common standard of reference, particularly in areas that have in the past been susceptible to greatly differing interpretations. This dictionary comprises sections in ten languages, each listing the same terms alphabetically. It also contains a table interlinking all of these languages, listing all terms explained. This translation table is organised alphabetically according to the English terms. The volume is indispensable for scientific translators, rock art scholars, archaeologists and others concerned with aspects of pre-Historic rock art, and is also intended for the guidance of students and authors working in this field.
