  1. El placer de la virtud en el universo moral de Francis Hutcheson

    OpenAIRE

    2010-01-01

    Hutcheson define la virtud por su relación con la inclinación benevolente de la naturaleza humana y su proyección a través de los actos del agente moral que buscan la felicidad ajena. Los actos virtuosos son objeto del sentido moral, cuya capacidad de valorarlos va unida al sentimiento que despiertan en el observador, atento a sus consecuencias. El artículo trata de articular los conceptos fundamentales de la filosofía moral de Francis Hutcheson en torno a la definición que ofrece de virtud m...

  2. De la autonomía a la comunidad. Hutcheson y el continuo trajinar entre el sentido moral y la benevolencia

    Full Text Available Not available

    Hutcheson es el teórico del sentido moral. y por tal se entiende una concepción de nuestro comportamiento ético y político que, a la par que sienta las bases de 10 que se ha instituido como concepción liberal de la política, es incapaz de considerar nuestro laborar en el mundo sin referirlo directamente a las imágenes comunitarias de 10 que sea el bien. Lo que Hutcheson nos puede enseñar es que nuestras discusienes actuales en filosofía política malentienden nuestra tradición y son incapaces de leerla al completo: precisamente a poco que se mire en nuestro pasado se comprenderá que nunca han caminado por separado las concepciones entre un estricto y autónomo sentido moral que juzga desde sí y una benevolencia comunitaria que le da los significados con los que juzgar.

  3. The cuisine of the Pitted Ware Culture

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Philippsen, Bente; Persson, Per

    The Pitted Ware Culture is a Middle Neolithic culture in southwestern Scandinavia. It appears about thousand years after the introduction of agriculture to this area. In some regions, it is characterized by an almost fully “Mesolithic” economy with a heavy reliance on seal hunting. In Djursland......, northeastern Denmark, however, the Pitted Ware Culture has always been regarded as having a mixed economy, utilizing both domesticated and wild resources. The research presented here was prepared in the framework of the multi-disciplinary project “CONTACT. The Pitted Ware Phenomenon in Djursland and Maritime...... Relations across the Kattegat in the Middle Neolithic”. Stable isotope analysis of food residues on pottery show what the pottery was used for on different types of sites and which resources were exploited. In contrast to human bones, the food residues provide a snapshot of the food prepared at one point...

  4. The Solution to Waring's Problem for Monomials

    Carlini, Enrico; Geramita, Anthony V

    2011-01-01

    In the polynomial ring $T=k[y_1,...,y_n]$, with $n>1$, we bound the multiplicity of homogeneous radical ideals $I\\subset (y_1^{a_1},...,y_n^{a_n})$ such that $T/I$ is a graded $k$-algebra with Krull dimension one. As a consequence we solve the Waring Problem for all monomials, i.e. we compute the minimal number of linear forms needed to write a monomial as a sum of powers of these linear forms. Moreover, we give an explicit description of a sum of powers decomposition for monomials. We also produce new bounds for the Waring rank of polynomials which are a sum of pairwise coprime monomials.

  5. Archaeological and chemical analysis of Tell el Yahudiyeh ware

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Kaplan, M F; Harbottle, G; Sayre, E V

    1978-01-01

    Typological and geographic analyses indicate that Tell el Yahudiyeh ware (found in Cyprus, Egypt, Nubia, and the Levant during the Middle Bronze period, c. 1750-1550 B.C.) were probably manufactured in two areas, the Nile Valley and the Levant. Activation analysis was carried out and correlated with the archaeological analyses. Results confirm the two ''families'' of the ware, one Egyptian and one Levantine. Speculations are offered on the social interaction of the period. 11 figures, 2 tables. (DLC)

    This interdisciplinary study focuses on a specific type of Roman coarse ware that was widely distributed in Bavaria, Austria and northern Italy during the 1st half of the 1st century AD. Various physical methods were applied to study the provenance of this characteristic marble tempered blackware and to assess its production techniques. The blackware found in large numbers on the Auerberg and at other sites in southern Germany can be identified as imported from East Tyrol, Austria.

    Correlation of both the archeological and chemical analyses are promising. The typological and geographical analyses suggest that Cylindrical 1 and Globular type vessels were manufactured in the Nile Valley. Every sample taken from a vessel of this type has a chemical composition which matches one of the Nile Valley sources. The archeological analyses suggest that Cylindrical 2, Piriform 2b and 3, Biconical 2, and Ovoid were manufactured in the Levant. Again, every sample from a vessel of these types matched a Levantine Clay source. Of the remaining types, Piriform 1 and 2a and Biconical 1, there are only 2 samples from each type which were not manufactured in the Nile Valley. There are only Levantine copies of Egyptian wares; there are no Egyptian copies of Levantine types. The near perfect correlation of the results of the chemical analyses with those of the archeological analyses allows the postulation of the existence of the 2 families of the ware, one Egyptian and one Levantine. 11 figures, 2 tables.

    The continual development of the internet has supported the spread of surgical knowledge by electronic means. High quality products have to be offered from a software as well as a contents point of view. The question as to whether these new media and their contents have a real value for efficient and motivating use in medical education needed to be answered by first assessing a quality profile for the development of surgical educational modules which were then evaluated on the basis of so-called "symposia ware". First, the reactions and opinions of physicians at 47 universities were assessed by a standardized questionnaire concerning their demands on multimedia teaching/learning modules. Several different aspects of technique, content, presentation, didactics and background knowledge were analyzed. In a second step, their opinions were evaluated concerning two applications (symposia implemented on CD-ROM as a slideshow with original slides and audio) with surgical and gastroenterological contents by standardized questionnaire. Questions concerning personal background such as educational status and experience with computers, e-mail and the internet on one hand and the CD-ROM itself concerning content, relevance for daily clinical work and continuing medical education as well as the quality of the application on the other hand, were evaluated using marks (1 = best, 6 = worst). A total of 320 physicians participated in the first part of the interview. Of these, 93% were equipped with computers in hospital as well as privately. The Internet was used by 90% of them. The majority declined a full text presentation as well as the application of scroll fields. The participants rather favored the integration of text, pictures, animations and videos. Furthermore, 95% demanded the provision on the internet. Thirty-seven colleagues in their 5th (1-11) year of training were interviewed, and of those, 27 were working in a surgical department and 10 in a medical department

    Software that cannot change is condemned to atrophy: it cannot accommodate the constant revision and re-negotiation of its business goals nor intercept the potential of new technology. To accommodate change in such systems we have defined an active software architecture to be: dynamic in that the structure and cardinality of the components and interactions are not statically known; updatable in that components can be replaced dynamically; and evolvable in that it permits its executing specification to be changed. Here we describe the facilities of the ArchWare architecture description language (ADL) for specifying active architectures. The contribution of the work is the unique combination of concepts including: a {\\pi}-calculus based communication and expression language for specifying executable architectures; hyper-code as an underlying representation of system execution; a decomposition operator to break up and introspect on executing systems; and structural reflection for creating new components and bind...

  20. Tell el Yahudiyeh Ware: a re-evaluation

    The TY (Tell el Yahudiyeh ware) project has implications for understanding the cultural interactions. The Second Intermediate Period (1750-1550 B.C.), one during which centraized government in Egypt collapses and, it is generally assumed, so does her trade network. Foreigners - the Hyksos - are able to enter the country and rule at least part of it. Results of this study (which includes activation analysis), however, indicate the TY is primarily an Egyptian pottery which appeared before the Hyksos entered and may have continued in use after they left. It cannot, therefore, be tightly associated with the Hyksos nor can it be used to judge the extent of their influence. Its wide distribution shows that Egypt continued to trade goods outside her boundaries throughout this period. Finally, not only goods travelled between what were generally considered to have been hostile neighbors, but the trade appears to have included ideas and technology as well.

    Management and operation of dams within the Columbia River Basin (CRB) provides the region with irrigation, hydropower production, flood control, navigation, and fish passage. These various system-wide demands can require unique dam operations that may result in both voluntary and involuntary spill, thereby increasing tailrace levels of total dissolved gas (TDG) which can be fatal to fish. Appropriately managing TDG levels within the context of the systematic demands requires a predictive framework robust enough to capture the operationally related effects on TDG levels. Development of the TDG predictive methodology herein attempts to capture the different modes of hydro operation, thereby making it a viable tool to be used in conjunction with a real-time scheduling model such as RiverWare. The end result of the effort will allow hydro operators to minimize system-wide TDG while meeting hydropower operational targets and constraints. The physical parameters such as spill and hydropower flow proportions, accompanied by the characteristics of the dam such as plant head levels and tailrace depths, are used to develop the empirically-based prediction model. In the broader study, two different models are developed a simplified and comprehensive model. The latter model incorporates more specific bubble physics parameters for the prediction of tailrace TDG levels. The former model is presented herein and utilizes an empirically based approach to predict downstream TDG levels based on local saturation depth, spillway and powerhouse flow proportions, and entrainment effects. Representative data collected from each of the hydro projects is used to calibrate and validate model performance and the accuracy of predicted TDG uptake. ORNL, in conjunction with IIHR - Hydroscience & Engineering, The University of Iowa, carried out model adjustments to adequately capture TDG levels with respect to each plant while maintaining a generalized model configuration.

    The manufacture of any kind of product inevitably entails the production of waste. The quantity of waste generated by the ceramic industry, a very important sector in Spain, is between 5% and 8% of the final output and it is therefore necessary to find an effective waste recovery method. The aim of the study reported in the present article was to seek a sustainable means of managing waste from the ceramic industry through the incorporation of this type of waste in the total replacement of conventional aggregate (gravel) used in structural concrete. Having verified that the recycled ceramic aggregates met all the technical requirements imposed by current Spanish legislation, established in the Code on Structural Concrete (EHE-08), then it is prepared a control concrete mix and the recycled concrete mix using 100% recycled ceramic aggregate instead of coarse natural aggregate. The concretes obtained were subjected to the appropriate tests in order to conduct a comparison of their mechanical properties. The results show that the concretes made using ceramic sanitary ware aggregate possessed the same mechanical properties as those made with conventional aggregate. It is therefore possible to conclude that the reuse of recycled ceramic aggregate to produce recycled concrete is a feasible alternative for the sustainable management of this waste.

    Full Text Available This investigation has three primary aims: 1 to study the traditional knowledge of Benjarong in Samut Sakhon Province; 2 to study designs and the production process of Benjarong sanitary ware in Samut Sakhon Province; 3 to develop Benjarong sanitary ware for commerce in Samut Sakhon Province. The research area for this investigation was purposively selected as Samut Sakhon Province. Data was gathered by document study, survey, participant and non-participant observation, structured and non-structured interview, focus group discussion and workshop. Results show that Benjarong sanitary products have been inherited from generation to generation in Samut Sakhon Province and continue to provide local jobs. Benjarong sanitary ware production uses a high budget because of the high price of colour inks, gold and electricity, so there are problems securing adequate funding. There are also problems with the management process and a lack of expert craftsmen to write and design modern patterns in harmony with contemporary art and Thai social identity. Moreover, many Thai people do not realize the value of cultural heritage and Benjarong inheritance is at risk. Benjarong sanitary ware can reflect local knowledge and traditional handicrafts. The researchers propose patterns for three types of Benjarong sanitary ware: washbasins, wall tiles and soap ledges. Development of these products will increase functionality and aesthetics, whilst maintaining Thai heritage.

    The contents of trace element of Yue ware excavated in Shaoxing, Shanglinhu, Shangyu kiln sites and Hangzhou palace were analyzed by NAA technique. The data of trace element compositions were treated by statistical analysis. It is found that the sources of raw materials used in Shaoxing, Shanglinhu, Shangyu kiln sites are different and stable. Especially the discriminant function predicted for porcelain bodies provides high discriminatory power according to production site. It shows that Yue ware specimens excavated in Hangzhou palace were fired in Shanglinhu. It indicates the special function of trace element in the studies on site identification.

    In this case report, we describe a modification of the biventricular implantation of the HeartWare HVAD. A 28-year-old man with dilative cardiomyopathy presented with biventricular decompensation. The patient underwent implantation of two HeartWare HVADs for biventricular support. Because of low flow of the right pump (2 L/min), a right ventricular angiogram and repeated transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) were done and showed that the pump was compressing the right ventricle. Operative revision was performed, resulting in removal of the right pump and placement into the right atrium, so that it was located in the right pleural cavity. The HVAD fixation ring on the free wall of the right ventricle was left in place, and the opening was closed with an individually designed titanium plug. The findings of this case are that implantation of the HeartWare HVAD for right ventricular (RV) support may be safely performed in atrial position, with individually designed plugs allowing safe and quick removal of the HeartWare pump. This might be used as a "bail-out" strategy when necessary.

    Full Text Available The three main ingredients of sanitary-ware are clay, feldspar and quartz. This ware is being widely used and has therefore, attracted the attention of researchers from time to time. Consequently, it has been extensively investigated. The present study describes the phase and micro-structural analysis of sanitary-ware samples collected from local (Durr Ceramics Peshawar industry. XRD (X-Ray Diffraction of samples fired at 1100oC reveals the presence of ? ? ? ? ?-quartz and primary mullite only. In addition to a-quartz and primary mullite, elongated needles of secondary mullite were also present in samples fired at 1200 and 1300oC. Unlike typical vitreous ceramics bodies, regions containing elongated secondary mullite originating from the clay relict and growing into the feldspar relict were few in number which is consistent with the high clay content in the starting body ingredients of the investigated samples. Another sample investigated for comparison purposes, contained all the phases mentioned above along with some corundum grains which indicated that the composition of sanitary ware varied from manufacturer to manufacturer. EDS (Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy detected high concentration of Fe in some regions in the bulk but the glaze did not contain any Fe.

    2002-10-01

    In the mid-20th century, several china manufacturers produced a popular monotone series of pottery. In order to obtain the orange-red color, such as FiestaWare's "Fiesta Red", a glaze containing naturally occurring uranium was used. These pieces of radioactive china have become popular demonstration tools for health physicists and nuclear scientists. This work analyzes emissions from two such pieces of differing origin. The gamma ray and x-ray spectra from a FiestaWare pitcher and Edward M. Knowles plate were measured with HPGe detectors. The content of uranium and uranium daughter products was identified. Estimates of the percentage content of U-235 in the plates were estimated in order to deduce the era of manufacture.

    休谟和斯密的光芒有时竟遮蔽了苏格兰启蒙运动的全景,以致弗兰西斯·哈奇森的思想一直未受学界充分的重视。韦伯为解释新教伦理与资本主义精神的关系,考察了“天职”这一概念;同样,弗兰西斯·哈奇森在“基督教化的斯多亚主义”伦理与功利主义精神之间也完成了一个切换:提出了以自然性情(包括道德感在内)这一新的人学建构理论。“基督教化的斯多亚主义”伦理是苏格兰启蒙运动思想家们的基本特征。从“遵循自然”到“遵循自然情感”的新的心灵构造、自然情感和人的社会本性学说,为从注重自控与内在自由的斯多亚主义向动机论的功利主义之公共福利与进取精神的过渡提供了基础。%The shine of Hume and Smith may sometimes obscure the panorama of the Scottish Enlightenment,so that Hutcheson s thought is not being fully considered. Max Weber, in order to interpreter the relationship between the Protestant Ethics and the spirit of the Capitalism,revealed the concept of Calling;likewise Hutcheson has accomplished a shift between“Christianized Stoicism“Ethics and the spirit of Utilitarianism:presented a new science of human nature at the core of natural affection,moral sense theory included. However,many classical Scottish moralists are characterized with the tendency of“Christianized Stoicism“Ethics. From“Following Na-ture to“Following Natural Affection ,thus new constitution of human mind,natural affection,and human s sociability provide a solid foundation for the channel from Stoicism stressing on self-command and inward freedom to Utilitarianism stressing on public welfare and aggressiveness.

  19. KnoWare: A System for Citizen-based Environmental Monitoring

    Full Text Available Non-expert scientists are frequently involved in research requiring data acquisition over large geographic areas. Despite mutual benefits for such “citizen science”, barriers also exist, including 1 difficulty maintaining user engagement with timely feedback, and 2 the challenge of providing non-experts with the means to generate reliable data. We have developed a system that addresses these barriers. Our technologies, KnoWare and InSpector, allow users to: collect reliable scientific measurements, map geo-tagged data, and intuitively visualize the results in real-time. KnoWare comprises a web portal and an iOS app with two core functions. First, users can generate scientific ‘queries’ that entail a call for information posed to a crowd with customized options for participant responses and viewing data. Second, users can respond to queries with their GPS-enabled mobile device, which results in their geo- and time-stamped responses populating a web-accessible map in real time. KnoWare can also interface with additional applications to diversify the types of data that can be reported. We demonstrate this capability with a second iOS app called InSpector that performs quantitative water quality measurements. When used in combina-tion, these technologies create a workflow to facilitate the collection, sharing and interpretation of scientific data by non-expert scientists.

    2015-01-01

    The present paper analyzes the interior rust that occurred in bronze alloy sample from 24 pieces of Early Qin bronze wares. Firstly, samples were processed by grinding, polishing and ultrasonic cleaning-to make a mirror surface. Then, a confocal micro-Raman spectrometer was employed to carry out spectroscopic study on the inclusions in samples. The conclusion indicated that corrosive phases are PbCO3 , PbO and Cu2O, which are common rusting production on bronze alloy. The light-colored circular or massive irregular areas in metallographic structure of samples are proved as Cu2O, showing that bronze wares are not only easy to be covered with red Cu2O rusting layer, but also their alloy is easy to be eroded by atomic oxygen. In other words, the rust Cu2O takes place in both the interior and exterior parts of the bronze alloy. In addition, Raman spectrum analysis shows that the dark grey materials are lead corrosive products--PbCO3 and PbO, showing the corroding process of lead element as Pb -->PbO-->PbCO3. In the texture of cast state of bronze alloy, lead is usually distributed as independent particles between the different alloy phases. The lead particles in bronze alloy would have oxidation reaction and generate PbO when buried in the soil, and then have chemical reaction with CO3(2-) dissolved in the underground water to generate PbCO3, which is a rather stable lead corrosive production. A conclusion can be drawn that the external corrosive factors (water, dissolved oxygen and carbonate, etc) can enter the bronze ware interior through the passageway between different phases and make the alloy to corrode gradually.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Since the introduction of next-generation DNA sequencers the rapid increase in sequencer throughput, and associated drop in costs, has resulted in more than a dozen human genomes being resequenced over the last few years. These efforts are merely a prelude for a future in which genome resequencing will be commonplace for both biomedical research and clinical applications. The dramatic increase in sequencer output strains all facets of computational infrastructure, especially databases and query interfaces. The advent of cloud computing, and a variety of powerful tools designed to process petascale datasets, provide a compelling solution to these ever increasing demands. Results In this work, we present the SeqWare Query Engine which has been created using modern cloud computing technologies and designed to support databasing information from thousands of genomes. Our backend implementation was built using the highly scalable, NoSQL HBase database from the Hadoop project. We also created a web-based frontend that provides both a programmatic and interactive query interface and integrates with widely used genome browsers and tools. Using the query engine, users can load and query variants (SNVs, indels, translocations, etc with a rich level of annotations including coverage and functional consequences. As a proof of concept we loaded several whole genome datasets including the U87MG cell line. We also used a glioblastoma multiforme tumor/normal pair to both profile performance and provide an example of using the Hadoop MapReduce framework within the query engine. This software is open source and freely available from the SeqWare project (http://seqware.sourceforge.net. Conclusions The SeqWare Query Engine provided an easy way to make the U87MG genome accessible to programmers and non-programmers alike. This enabled a faster and more open exploration of results, quicker tuning of parameters for heuristic variant calling filters

    Having outlined the conceptual design and planning capability in the previous two papers, the final contribution in this trilogy describes the application of WaterWare to the River Thames basin in England and Rio Lerma in Mexico. Examples are given of the real-world problems that can be addressed using this system. These include water-resource assessment, reservoir site selection, decontamination of groundwater, estimation of sustainable irrigation abstractions and derivation of required effluent-quality standards. The requirement in both cases is to provide the analytical tools to be used by the agency staff themselves for planning purposes.

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available OpenCourseWare (OCW, a set of free-of-use learning materials established by universities, became quite a success over the years and aroused the users’ willingness to learn online. However, the design of OCW websites, including the structure, organization of learning resources and interfaces is multi-variant and disordered. The system and arrangement are still lacking of an evaluation standard. The goal of this study is to establish and verify the dimensions and the criteria that are suitable for evaluation of OCW websites. To achieve the research goal, the researchers performed document analysis and the Delphi Method. Sixteen experts in a total took part in the Delphi panel. By giving three rounds of questionnaire to those experts in the self-developed e-Delphi system, the researcher gathered their opinions then analyzed them back and forth. The final edition of the Evaluation Dimensions and Criteria for OpenCourseWare Website includes seven dimensions with fifty-seven criteria. Finally, concrete suggestions for OCW website establishment and administration were provided. Implications and recommendations for future research were also addressed.

    3D visibility analysis plays a key role in urban planning for assessing the visual impact of proposed buildings on the cityscape. A call for proposals typically yields around 30 candidate buildings that need to be evaluated with respect to selected viewpoints. Current visibility analysis methods are very time-consuming and limited to a small number of viewpoints. Further, analysts neither have measures to evaluate candidates quantitatively, nor to compare them efficiently. The primary contribution of this work is the design study of Vis-A-Ware, a visualization system to qualitatively and quantitatively evaluate, rank, and compare visibility data of candidate buildings with respect to a large number of viewpoints. Vis-A-Ware features a 3D spatial view of an urban scene and non-spatial views of data derived from visibility evaluations, which are tightly integrated by linked interaction. To enable a quantitative evaluation we developed four metrics in accordance with experts from urban planning. We illustrate the applicability of Vis-A-Ware on the basis of a use case scenario and present results from informal feedback sessions with domain experts from urban planning and development. This feedback suggests that Vis-A-Ware is a valuable tool for visibility analysis allowing analysts to answer complex questions more efficiently and objectively.

    Software that cannot evolve is condemned to atrophy: it cannot accommodate the constant revision and re-negotiation of its business goals nor intercept the potential of new technology. To accommodate change in software systems we have defined an active software architecture to be: dynamic in that the structure and cardinality of the components and interactions are changeable during execution; updatable in that components can be replaced; decomposable in that an executing system may be (partially) stopped and split up into its components and interactions; and reflective in that the specification of components and interactions may be evolved during execution. Here we describe the facilities of the ArchWare architecture description language (ADL) for specifying active architectures. The contribution of the work is the unique combination of concepts including: a {\\pi}-calculus based communication and expression language for specifying executable architectures; hyper-code as an underlying representation of system ...

    CERN Document Server

    Kolos, Serguei; The ATLAS collaboration

    2016-01-01

    The ATLAS Trigger & Data Acquisition (TDAQ) project was started almost twenty years ago with the aim of providing scalable distributed data collection system for the experiment. While the software dealing with physics data flow was implemented by directly using the low-level communication protocols, like TCP and UDP, the control and monitoring infrastructure services for the TDAQ system were implemented on top of the CORBA communication middle-ware. CORBA provides a high-level object oriented abstraction for the inter process communication, hiding communication complexity from the developers. This approach speeds up and simplifies development of communication services but incurs some extra cost in terms of performance and resources overhead. Our experience of using CORBA for control and monitoring data exchange in the distributed TDAQ system was very successful, mostly due to the outstanding quality of the CORBA brokers, which have been used in the project: omniORB for C++ and JacORB for Java. However, du...

    Full Text Available In this paper, we discuss variations seen in the ornamentation and modes of manufacturing pottery from the end of the mid-Neolithic 4600–4300 BP on the Island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea. The Pitted Ware cultural groups have been discussed as a western influence from the Swedish mainland, but the aDNA on skeletal remains point to eastern influences. We analyse and discuss pottery from the well-investigated Ajvide Pitted Ware site and what these variations mean in term of intra- and inter-island relationships, ethnicity and change, and we suggest the development of what could be described as a hybrid culture.

    Full Text Available The free and open publication of course materials (OpenCourseWare or OCW was initially undertaken by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT and other universities primarily to share educational resources among educators (Abelson, 2007. OCW, however, and more in general open educational resources (OER1, have also provided well-documented opportunities for all learners, including the so-called “informal learners” and “independent learners” (Carson, 2005; Mulder, 2006, p. 35. Universities have also increasingly documented clear benefits for specific target groups such as secondary education students and lifelong learners seeking to enter formal postsecondary education programs.In addition to benefitting learners, OCW publication has benefitted the publishing institutions themselves by providing recruiting advantages. Finally enrollment figures from some institutions indicate that even in the case of the free and open publication of materials from online programs, OCW does not negatively affect enrollment. This paper reviews evaluation conducted at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH, and Open Universiteit Nederland (OUNL concerning OCW effects on higher education participation and student recruitment.

    Peng, Yichuan; Lord, Dominique; Zou, Yajie

    2014-12-01

    As one of the major analysis methods, statistical models play an important role in traffic safety analysis. They can be used for a wide variety of purposes, including establishing relationships between variables and understanding the characteristics of a system. The purpose of this paper is to document a new type of model that can help with the latter. This model is based on the Generalized Waring (GW) distribution. The GW model yields more information about the sources of the variance observed in datasets than other traditional models, such as the negative binomial (NB) model. In this regards, the GW model can separate the observed variability into three parts: (1) the randomness, which explains the model's uncertainty; (2) the proneness, which refers to the internal differences between entities or observations; and (3) the liability, which is defined as the variance caused by other external factors that are difficult to be identified and have not been included as explanatory variables in the model. The study analyses were accomplished using two observed datasets to explore potential sources of variation. The results show that the GW model can provide meaningful information about sources of variance in crash data and also performs better than the NB model.

  7. OpenCourseWare, Global Access and the Right to Education: Real access or marketing ploy?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Henk Huijser

    2008-02-01

    Full Text Available This paper explores the potential opportunities that OpenCourseWare (OCW offers in providing wider access to tertiary education, based on the ideal of ‘the right to education’. It first discusses the wider implications of OCW, and its underlying philosophy, before using a case study of a tertiary preparation program (TPP at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ to draw out the issues involved in offering a program that is created in a particular national and social context on a global scale. This paper draws specific attention to the digital divide, its effects in national and global contexts, and the particular obstacles this presents with regards to OCW. This paper argues that OCW provides many opportunities, both in terms of access to education and in terms of student recruitment and marketing for universities. To take full advantage of those opportunities, however, requires a concerted effort on the part of tertiary education institutions, and it requires a vision that is fundamentally informed by, and committed to, the principle of ‘the right to education’.

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available This study examined the possibility of reusing the ceramic wastes of sanitary ware as coarse aggregate, in partial substitution (15, 20 y 25 % of natural coarse aggregates. Firstly, the characterization of recycled coarse ceramic aggregate was carried out subsequently proceeded to establish the parameters of dosage and manufacture of different concretes. Lastly, tests were conducted using these mixes to characterize physical and mechanical, and a study was carried out to identify the crystalline phases. Results showed that as the substitution proportion increased, the mechanical properties of the concrete improved, whilst physical properties remained practically constant. In view of these results, we conclude that it is possible to use this type of ceramic waste as coarse aggregate when mixing concrete destined for structural purposes.

    En este estudio se plantea la posibilidad de reutilizar los residuos cerámicos de sanitarios como árido grueso sustituyendo de forma parcial (15, 20 y 25 % al árido grueso natural. Para ello, se llevó a cabo la caracterización del árido cerámico reciclado y posteriormente se procedió a establecer los parámetros de dosificación y fabricación de los distintos hormigones. Finalmente, se realizó sobre los mismos unos ensayos de caracterización de las propiedades físicas y mecánicas, y un estudio de las fases cristalinas. Los resultados indican que a medida que se aumenta el porcentaje de sustitución se ven mejoradas las propiedades mecánicas de estos, mientras que las propiedades físicas se mantienen prácticamente constantes. A la vista de estos resultados se puede concluir que es posible la utilización de este tipo de residuo cerámico como árido grueso en la elaboración de hormigones con fines estructurales.

    Full Text Available Internationalization consists of extending an organization's operations abroad. It involves decisions based on objective criteria and on an evaluation of strategies for entering the foreign market. The problem addressed in this study concerns a Brazilian firm’s difficulties developing its operations abroad. Thus, the purpose of this study was to identify the internationalization process of an industry in the sanitary ware segment in the development of its operations in another country. The research method employed was the single case study and data was collected by means of a semi-structured research script applied to company executives. The results showed that the internationalization process is characterized by the dynamic learning model (Uppsala Model, according to which an organization develops its activities abroad gradually, as it acquires experience and expertise in the market. The company is attempting to overcome cultural barriers and psychic distance in a slow internationalization process, aligned with the differentiation strategy and focus that it uses in the Brazilian market. This strategy comprises a sequence of planned and deliberate steps, with low investment exposure and risk. It was found that the firm adopts a strategy of exporting through distributors, this being a critical success factor, but that the distributor approval and development process lacks robust and formalized structuring. There are opportunities for improvement in the process of competitive intelligence in order to systematize the search and interpretation of information about the markets in which the company wants to operate.  Key-words: Internationalization of companies.

    Implantation of ventricular assist devices (VADs) for the treatment of end-stage heart failure (HF) falls decidedly short of clinical demand, which exceeds 100,000 HF patients per year. Ventricular assist device implantation often requires major surgical intervention with associated risk of adverse events and long recovery periods. To address these limitations, HeartWare, Inc. has developed a platform of miniature ventricular devices with progressively reduced surgical invasiveness and innovative patient peripherals. One surgical implant concept is a transapical version of the miniaturized left ventricular assist device (MVAD). The HeartWare MVAD Pump is a small, continuous-flow, full-support device that has a displacement volume of 22 ml. A new cannula configuration has been developed for transapical implantation, where the outflow cannula is positioned across the aortic valve. The two primary objectives for this feasibility study were to evaluate anatomic fit and surgical approach and efficacy of the transapical MVAD configuration. Anatomic fit and surgical approach were demonstrated using human cadavers (n = 4). Efficacy was demonstrated in acute (n = 2) and chronic (n = 1) bovine model experiments and assessed by improvements in hemodynamics, biocompatibility, flow dynamics, and histopathology. Potential advantages of the MVAD Pump include flow support in the same direction as the native ventricle, elimination of cardiopulmonary bypass, and minimally invasive implantation.

    2013-02-01

    Researches in the field of pottery production technology in ancient times, done in different settlements during the same period, may contribute to know relationships established within the different cultural communities. In ancient times, Anatolia (Asia Minor) was the crossroads of ancient civilizations. There are several ancient settlements and artifacts belonging to Hellenistic culture (330-30 BC). West Slope wares from Dorylaion (Eski ehir/Turkey) excavations are the main Hellenistic culture findings. In this study, different analytical techniques were employed for the characterization of these findings in order to enlighten the pottery production technology. Wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) were employed to study the chemical and mineralogical composition of the bodies, respectively. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDX) were also performed for the microstructural and microchemical characterization of body and slip layers of the selected potsherds. The raw materials used, firing temperatures and atmosphere and related microstructural characteristics were discussed. (Author) 22 refs.

    Ceramic fragments from the antique city of Aizanoi, Turkey were investigated by micro Raman spectrometry in conjunction with XRPD and SEM-EDX analyses. Some basic physical characteristics of the ceramic samples were also investigated. Illite and muscovite were determined as the main clay types in the ceramic fragments. Clay used in the production of ceramic wares was found to be calcareous in most of the samples. No high temperature clay minerals were detected in the ceramics. All ceramic fragments were found to be rich in iron content. Hematite and magnetite were identified to be the principle coloring agents in the investigated samples. The ceramics with hematite content were assessed to be fired in an oxygen rich atmosphere whereas the samples having magnetite were proposed to be fired in an inadequately ventilated kiln. Based on the presence of calcite, dolomite and TiO2 in the crystal form of anatase in the samples, firing temperature during production was estimated to be below 750 °C.

    Implantable left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) became the therapy of choice in treating end-stage heart failure. Although survival improved substantially and is similar in currently clinically implanted LVADs HeartMate II (HM II) and HeartWare HVAD, complications related to blood trauma are frequently observed. The aim of this study was to compare these two pumps regarding their potential blood trauma employing computational fluid dynamics. High-resolution structured grids were generated for the pumps. Newtonian flow was calculated, solving Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations with a sliding mesh approach and a k-ω shear stress transport turbulence model for the operating point of 4.5 L/min and 80 mm Hg. The pumps were compared in terms of volumes subjected to certain viscous shear stress thresholds, below which no trauma was assumed (von Willebrand factor cleavage: 9 Pa, platelet activation: 50 Pa, and hemolysis: 150 Pa), and associated residence times. Additionally, a hemolysis index was calculated based on a Eulerian transport approach. Twenty-two percent of larger volumes above 9 Pa were observed in the HVAD; above 50 Pa and 150 Pa the differences between the two pumps were marginal. Residence times were higher in the HVAD for all thresholds. The hemolysis index was almost equal for the HM II and HVAD. Besides the gap regions in both pumps, the inlet regions of the rotor and diffuser blades have a high hemolysis production in the HM II, whereas in the HVAD, the volute tongue is an additional site for hemolysis production. Thus, in this study, the comparison of the HM II and the HVAD using numerical methods indicated an overall similar tendency to blood trauma in both pumps. However, influences of turbulent shear stresses were not considered and effects of the pivot bearing in the HM II were not taken into account. Further in vitro investigations are required.

    The study sought to characterize patterns in the HeartWare (HeartWare Inc., Framingham, Massachusetts) ventricular assist device (HVAD) log files associated with successful medical treatment of device thrombosis. Device thrombosis is a serious adverse event for mechanical circulatory support devices and is often preceded by increased power consumption. Log files of the pump power are easily accessible on the bedside monitor of HVAD patients and may allow early diagnosis of device thrombosis. Furthermore, analysis of the log files may be able to predict the success rate of thrombolysis or the need for pump exchange. The log files of 15 ADVANCE trial patients (algorithm derivation cohort) with 16 pump thrombus events treated with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) were assessed for changes in the absolute and rate of increase in power consumption. Successful thrombolysis was defined as a clinical resolution of pump thrombus including normalization of power consumption and improvement in biochemical markers of hemolysis. Significant differences in log file patterns between successful and unsuccessful thrombolysis treatments were verified in 43 patients with 53 pump thrombus events implanted outside of clinical trials (validation cohort). The overall success rate of tPA therapy was 57%. Successful treatments had significantly lower measures of percent of expected power (130.9% vs. 196.1%, p = 0.016) and rate of increase in power (0.61 vs. 2.87, p < 0.0001). Medical therapy was successful in 77.7% of the algorithm development cohort and 81.3% of the validation cohort when the rate of power increase and percent of expected power values were <1.25% and 200%, respectively. Log file parameters can potentially predict the likelihood of successful tPA treatments and if validated prospectively, could substantially alter the approach to thrombus management.

    Since the archaeological survey in Tibet in 1990, Chinese archaeologists have found tombs and settlements dated to the early Metal Age in western Tibet, from which several bronze wares have been excavated. This article compares the cultural properties of these bronze wares with those discovered in surrounding areas such as eastern Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, Mustang in northern Nepal, northern Pakistan and northwestern India. The author argues that there were two routes for the transmission of Eurasia Steppe culture to the western Himalaya region - the east route and the west route - and this was related with the long-distance trade across the Qinghai- Tibet Plateau at that time.%1990年西藏文物普查开展以来,我国考古学家陆续在西藏西部发现一批属于早期金属时代的墓葬与居址,其中出土若干青铜器。本文结合周边地区如青藏高原东部、尼泊尔北部的穆斯塘地区、巴基斯坦北部地区、印度西北部的考古发现,对相关青铜器的文化属性予以比较讨论,认为欧亚草原文化因素自东、西两个不同方向辗转进入西喜马拉雅地区,这当与跨青藏高原的长距离贸易相关。

    Experimental studies of the natural photoluminescence of melamine in aqueous solutions showed that its fluorescence intensity (at 250/365 nm) was appropriated for analytical purposes. The exploitation of such melamine property provided the basis of development of a new, simple, precise and accurate method based on high performance liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection (HPLC-Fluo) to determine melamine in kitchen plastic ware following aqueous extraction using a microwave oven. Optimization of analytical parameters such as solvent composition, pH and extraction conditions led to limits of detection and quantification of melamine of 0.0081 and 0.027 μg mL(-1), respectively, with a linear range up to 10 μg mL(-1). Sample extracts fortified with melamine at three concentration levels produced an average recovery of 98±6%, which was in agreement with the results achieved with a reference HPLC-UV method. Different samples of kitchen plastic ware analyzed by the developed and optimized method showed melamine concentrations in the aqueous extract up to 17 µg mL(-1), which corresponded to 86.0 mg kg(-1) in these utensils. The results obtained indicate that the use of kitchen plastic ware made of melamine can contaminate food with this compound after heating in a microwave oven.

    Although retention of employees has become hot topic in this career turbulent era, practically no empirical research is carried out in the fast growing ceramic sector till now and this research fills the gap in the literature. The literatures surveys reported that organization commitment is an important determinant of retention and work environment, supervisor support and training and development are the most relevant antecedents increasing commitment towards organization. This paper examines the impact of the above factors over organization commitment and explores the effects of organization commitment on retention, and verifies the mediating effect of organization commitment on the relationship between proposed factors and retention. Design/methodology/approach: A survey was completed by 416 employees working in five ceramic sanitary ware factories located at different places in India. Questionnaire consisting of items adopted from previous researches were used to collect data. The selection of respondents was based on the simple random sampling. Findings: Findings reveals that organization commitment influences retention and all the above factors enhances it. Moreover organization commitment partially mediates the relationship between proposed factors and retention. However multiple regression analysis indicated that training and development did not have any notable influence on retention. Limitations: This study was conducted in a particular country and also in a particular sector of manufacturing industry, which limits generalization .Possibility of bias towards their organization and assumption that respondents know about their organization are other limitations. Implications: This paper offers recommendations to HR(Human resource) managers that they should extend their support to work environment, supervisor support and training and development in order to generate better relationship with employees and to reduce their likelihood of leaving the company

    Ofifcial Xuande ware with its unsurpassable height of craftsmanship in Chinese ceramic history had profound inlfuence on the production of porcelain in later periods. As a result, ofifcial Xuande ware imitation prevailed in the ceramic industry during Ming and Qing Dynasties. This paper classiifes this prevalent practice of imitation into three levels:imitation by fully copying the original, imitation by copying the original style for homage to the old masters, and imitation with creative changes to part of the original. The observation of the phenomenon at these levels is expected to clarify the role of Xuande ware in ceramic industry in Ming and Qing Dynasties and reveal the relation between antique imitation and innovation.%宣德官窑是中国陶瓷史上一座难以逾越的瓷业高峰,成就极大,对后世影响深远,仿宣德官窑成为明清制瓷业中的一个普遍现象。通过对明清仿宣德官窑现象的梳理,将之分为三种形式的仿古,一为整体临摹式仿古,一为摹古寄托式仿古,一为局部化裁式仿古;以此解析仿宣德对于明清制瓷业的具体影响,并由此试图探索仿古与创新之间的关系。

  20. Modeling groundwater-surface water interactions in an operational setting by linking object- oriented river basin management model (RiverWare) with 3-D finite-difference groundwater model (MODFLOW).

    Valerio, A.; Rajaram, H.; Zagona, E.

    2007-12-01

    Accurate representation of groundwater-surface water interactions is critical to modeling low river flow periods in riparian environments in the semi-arid southwestern United States. As an example, over-appropriation of human water use in the Middle Rio Grande region adversely impacts the habitat of the endangered Rio Grande silvery minnow. Improved management practices during low flow conditions could prevent channel desiccation and habitat destruction. We present a modeling tool with significant potential for improved decision-making in stream reaches influenced by significant surface-groundwater interactions. While river basin management models typically represent operational complexities such as human elements of water demand and consumption with a high degree of sophistication, they often represent groundwater-surface water interactions semi-empirically or at coarse resolution. In contrast, distributed groundwater models, with an adequately fine grid represent groundwater-surface water interactions accurately, but seldom incorporate complex details of water rights and user demands. To best exploit the strengths of both classes of models, we have developed a link between the object-oriented river management software package RiverWare and the USGS groundwater modeling program MODFLOW. An interactive time stepping approach is used in the linked model. RiverWare and MODFLOW run in parallel exchanging data after each time-step. This linked framework incorporates several features critical to modeling groundwater-surface interactions in riparian zones, including riparian ET, localized variations in seepage rates and rule-based water allocations to users and/or environmental flows, and is expected to be an improved tool for modeling groundwater-surface water interaction in regions where groundwater storage repose to changing river conditions is rapid. The performance of the linked model is illustrated through applications on the Rio Grande in the vicinity of

    Full Text Available Il presente contributo illustra brevemente lo stato degli studi sulla ceramica medievale nelle Marche, caratterizzato da una generale penuria di dati stratigrafici editi, dai quali estrapolare indicatori utili all’attribuzione cronologica del materiale da ricognizione. Tuttavia l’opera di catalogazione e analisi affrontata sui materiali diagnostici del progetto R.I.M.E.M., ha permesso l’individuazione di numerose forme pertinenti alla ceramica comune e collocabili nel lungo arco temporale che va dalla fine del mondo classico al tardo medioevo. Se per l’altomedioevo i recipienti più diffusi risultano essere quelli da cucina (olle, fornicoperchio, con sporadiche attestazioni di anfore, il corredo basso-medievale appare più diversificato, sia nella tipologia degli impasti che nella varietà delle forme. Novità indiscussa nel panorama delle forme usate nei secoli dopo il 1000 è il paiolo a cestello, molto diffuso nel comprensorio qui analizzato e testimone della convivenza tra produzioni locali/domestiche e extraregionali, nello specifico di area tirrenica. The first aspect of this paper dealt with in the introduction is the archaeological data (and the lack of it used during research, with the presentation of the most important sites for comparative analysis. The most diagnostic shapes for early Middle Ages belong to cooking pots, basins/covers and other course ware such as small amphorae and jugs, which find analogies at regional sites, in the middle Apennine area, the Adriatic region and at sites along the Tyrrhenian coast. Common indicators for this period are varied decorated vessels of closed or open forms, with combed wavy or horizontal lines or decorated by rouletting. The first type has a wider chronological span (late Roman period – Middle Ages, but local and extra-regional analogies show an increase during the centuries of the early Middle Ages, especially on cooking pots and bowls.

    Recent advances in electronic and automotive industries as well as in wireless telecommunication technologies have drawn a new picture where each vehicle became “fully networked”. Multiple stake-holders (network operators, drivers, car manufacturers, service providers, etc.) will participate in this emerging market, which could grow following various models. To free the market from technical constraints, it is important to return to the basics of the Internet, i.e., providing embarked devices with a fully operational Internet connectivity (IPv6).

  6. Frische marginalisierte Körper – ausgegrenzte Körper als Ware Fresh, Marginalized Bodies—Segregated Bodies as Ware

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Heinz-Jürgen Voß

    2008-07-01

    Full Text Available Für Arbeitsprozesse werden Körper normiert, um sie bestmöglich und gewinnbringend verwerten zu können. Sie sollen funktionieren – tun sie es nicht, stehen sie am Rand. Aber auch im Konsum- und Freizeitbereich werden Normen gesetzt – nicht von einer „repressiven Macht“, sondern durch die Mitwirkung aller Beteiligten. Ausgehend von einer insbesondere Foucault’schen Perspektive setzen die Beiträge des Sammelbandes einige an den Rand gedrängte Körper ins Licht. Mit welchen körperlichen Merkmalen wird man an den Rand gedrängt? Welche körperlichen Merkmale werden darüber hinaus eigens erdacht, um antisemitische, rassistische, sexistische Ausschlüsse zu vollziehen? Dieses Buch bietet lesenswerte historische und aktuelle Einblicke an; geschrieben sind sie zumeist von lange an entsprechenden Thematiken arbeitenden Wissenschaftler/-innen, von deren Arbeiten die Lesende hier knapp gefasst partizipieren kann.Bodies are normalized for work processes in order that they can be utilized in the best and most profitable manner. They should function well—if they do not, then they are sidelined. But the consumer and leisure industry also sets norms—not through a “repressive power,” but through the cooperation of all involved. The contributions in this collected volume utilize a Foucaultian perspective to shine light on some of those bodies that have been pushed to the margins. Which physical features cause one to be marginalized? And which physical features are imagined in order to cause exclusion on the basis of anti-Semitic, racist, and sexist beliefs? This book offers historical and contemporary perspectives and is well-worth reading; scholars who have longed worked on such themes authored the contributions. The volume allows readers to participate in their work, if even only briefly.

    Hume further developed the emotivism moral values on the basis of the theory of Hutcheson’ moral sense.He located the moral judgments on the basis of emotion,and the criteria of morality on pleasure and utility brought about from acts and characters.Hume plays an important role as a pioneer since he paves the way for Bentham’s philosophical utilitarianism with its foundation and structure.Nevertheless,he differs from utilitarianisms in the view of utility on its purpose—utility sense,for he puts this notion within the limit of instrument,and thus stays away from the latter,albeit he facilitates the philosophical utilitarianism.%休谟在哈奇森道德感理论的基础上进一步发展了情感主义的道德观点:道德的基础在于“情感”,而道德判定的标准在于行为和品格所引起的“愉悦性”和“效用性”。这一观点为后来以边沁为代表的哲学功利主义的兴起提供了直接性的理论基础和理论框架,休谟也因此在这一过程中起到了极为重要的过渡意义。但不同于功利主义者在目的-效用意义上对“功利”概念的运用,休谟的“效用”概念仅限于手段意义。休谟促成了哲学功利主义的兴起,但他并未成为一个功利主义者。

  12. SmartApps: Middle-ware for Adaptive Applications on Reconfigurable Platforms

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Lawrence Rauchwerger

    2009-08-09

    There are several reasons why the performance of current distributed and heterogeneous systems is often disappointing. For example, the characteristics of the application may be input sensitive and evolve during execution causing dramatic changes in memory reference patterns, resource requirements, or degree of concurrency between different phases of the computation. Or, the system may change dynamically with nodes failing or appearing, some network links severed and other links established with different latencies and bandwidths. Another important reason for poor performance is the fairly compartmentalized approach to optimization: applications, compilers, operating systems and hardware configurations are designed and optimized in isolation and without the knowledge of instance specific information and needs of a running application. There is too little information flow across these boundaries and no global optimization is even attempted. For example, most operating systems services like paging, virtual-to-physical page mapping, I/O, or data layout in disks, provide little or no application customization. Similarly, the off-the-shelf hardware used by most commercial systems is optimized to give best average-case performance. To address this problem, we have proposed application-centric computing, or Smart Applications (SAS). In the SAS executable, the compiler embeds most run-time system services, and a performance-optimizing feedback loop that monitors the application's performance and adaptively reconfigures the application and the OS/system platform. At run-time, after incorporating the code's input and determining the system's resources and state, the SAS performs an *instance* specific optimization, which is more tractable than a global generic optimization between application, OS and system. The overriding philosophy of SAS is ``measure, compare, and adapt if beneficial.'' That is, the application will continually monitor its performance and the available resources to determine if, and by how much, performance could be improved if the application was restructured. Then, if the potential performance benefit outweighs the projected overhead costs, the application will restructure itself and the underlying system accordingly. The SAS framework includes performance monitoring and modeling components and mechanisms for performing the actual restructuring at various levels including: (i) algorithmic adaptation, (ii) run-time software optimization (e.g., input sensitivity analysis, etc.), (iii) tuning reconfigurable OS services (scheduling policy, page size, etc), and (iv) system configuration (e.g., selecting which, and how many, computational resources to use). SmartApps is being developed in the STAPL infrastructure. STAPL (the Standard Template Adaptive Parallel Library) is a framework for developing highly-optimizable, adaptable, and portable parallel and distributed applications. It consists of a relatively new and still evolving collection of generic parallel algorithms and distributed containers and a run-time system (RTS) through which the application and compiler interact with the OS and hardware.

  13. On exponential sums over primes and application in Waring-Goldbach problem

    REN; Xiumin

    2005-01-01

    In this paper, we prove the following estimateon exponential sums over primes: Let κ≥ 1, βκ = 1/2 + log κ/log 2, x ≥ 2 and α = a/q + λ subject to (a, q) = 1, 1 ≤ a ≤ q,and λ R. ThenΣx<m≤2x∧(m)e(αmk)<<(d(q))βk(logx)c(x1/2√q(1+|λ|xk)+x4/5+x/√q(1+|λ|xk)).As an application, we prove that with at most O(N7/8+ε) exceptions, all positive integers up to N satisfying some necessary congruence conditions are the sum of three squares of primes. This result is as strong as what has previously been established under the generalized Riemann hypothesis.

  14. Reformasie as herstel van die ware diens van God: enkele aanwysers by Calvyn en Zwingli

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    L.F. Schulze

    1998-03-01

    Full Text Available Reformation as restoration of the true service of God - some indicators in the work of Calvin and ZwingliIn this article an attempt is made to interpret the 16th century Reformation from a rarely mentioned, yet very real perspective, viz., as a restoration of the true service of God. It is indicated that the true service o f God is an overarching concept, encompassing more than simply an ecclesiastical reform, or a return to the Bible. Besides these aspects, true service o f God implies the renewal o f life with all its social, economical and political overtones, which cannot be discussed in full in an article. Data drawn from some works o f Calvin and Zwingli will hopefully prove the validity o f this perspective and offer Christians in the "new South Africa" thought-provoking ideas which should be put into action.

    2012-10-01

    Full Text Available The incorporation of online learning tools as a detrimental component of the education of younger generations has yet to see an en masse standardized adoption by the public. The primary reason is the lack of an existing platform (or the inability to produce one that can perfectly replicate the classroom experience. However, the noticeable increase in offerings of such tools and materials over the past few years from both the institutional (universities and the non-institutional (private side could be a sign that the technology is being created so that the concept may well be proven and adopted during the current technological revolution. This paper introduces the most recent addition to the non-institutional part of the movement, an online education platform called The Open Academy. The website at its current state is an accumulation of online lecture videos, slides, exercises and practice exams covering various academic disciplines for college-level students. The paper covers the background and the development of the platform, its purposes and potential future benefits, further development projects currently underway and also potential problems and challenges that may lie ahead.

    Objective Ventricular assist device (VAD) miniaturization is one design trend that may result in less-invasive implantation techniques and more versatility with patient selection. The MVAD System is a miniature, continuous-flow device implanted in the ventricle. The pump is capable of delivering between 0 and 7 L/min of flow at a mean arterial pressure of 75 mm Hg. The impeller was optimized from its original design to improve hydraulic performance, minimize shear regions, and enhance the impeller’s radial stiffness. These studies evaluated the MVAD System with modified impeller in the preclinical setting. Methods This modified pump design was tested through chronic studies (n = 6) in a healthy ovine model where 4 animals were implanted for a duration of 30 ± 5 days and 2 animals were implanted for a duration of 90 ± 5 days. The pump was placed in the left ventricular apex with the outflow graft anastomosed to the descending aorta. Postoperatively, no anticoagulant or antiplatelet therapies were administered throughout the study duration. Results All 6 animals reached their elective date of kill, demonstrating no evidence of organ compromise or device-related complications. Average pump parameters did not deviate significantly, and average rotational speed, pump flow, and power consumption were 14095 ± 139 RPM, 4.1 ± 0.4 L/min, and 4.3 ± 0.1 W, respectively. Examination of pump components postexplant demonstrated no mechanical wear or thrombus formation. Conclusions Hemocompatibility and biocompatibility of the modified MVAD System were demonstrated through pump parameters, blood chemistry panels, and histopathology analysis. PMID:26098174

    This paper explores the case for using "community-based shared values" as a potential driver for the "Heartware" aspects of governance in Integrated Watershed Management (IWM) - from a Japan-Malaysia policy learning perspective. This policy approach was originally inspired by the Japanese experience, and the paper investigates whether a similar strategy can be adapted in the Malaysian context-based on a qualitative exploratory case study of a local downstream watershed community. The community-based shared values are categorized into six functional values that can be placed on a watershed: industry, ecosystem, lifestyle, landscape, water resource and spirituality. The study confirmed the availability of a range of community-based shared values in each category that are promising to drive the heartware for integrated watershed management in the local Malaysian context. However, most of these shared values are either declining in its appreciation or nostalgic in nature. The paper ends with findings on key differences and similarities between the Malaysian and Japanese contexts, and concludes with lessons for international transfer of IWM heartware policy strategies between the two countries.

  3. 汉代漆器铭文"(氵,冃)工"考%A Decipherment of the Term "Maogong"in Inscriptions of Han Period Lacquered Ware

    In academic circles, presently there are roughly six versions of decipherment of the character "(氵,冃)" in the word "(氵,冃)工" related to a type of work in production, which occurs in inscriptions of Han period lacquered articles. The opinions are widely divided, and no unanimous conclusion has been drawn. Actually this character should be deciphered as "(氵,冃)" equal to "mao" ("冒" or "(氵,冒)") with the meaning "covering," and the "(氵,冃)工," therefore, is identical with "(氵,冒)工" referring to lacquer painters who covered the body of products with a transparent coating of lacquer refined through a special process (the so-called "罩明") . The word "(氵,冃)工" referring to these lacquer painters can also be extended to mean "covering painters 罩工 ." The technology of covering artifacts with transparent lacquer that was "as clear as water" had been widely applied in China by the Han period, as early as more than 2,000 years ago.

    对于蓝青系列钧瓷釉的呈色机理,中外研究者有多种解释,但莫衷一是的是,其究竟是结构呈色-抑或“乳光蓝色”还是化学着色.本文从结构色、乳光的内涵、钧瓷釉中可能存在的结构色类型分析,结合解析钧釉中存在的化学元素着色方式以及基础实验的经验,探讨了钧瓷釉与乳光、窑变及结构色的关系,从而得出,钧瓷蓝青系列色釉的着色机理,是特殊工艺条件下化学色与结构色的复合着色.多种变价着色元素的存在以及古瓷窑炉温差大、气氛稳定性差的结构特点和釉料组成中元素种类丰富等特点,是其极易色变出现“窑变”现象的本质;“乳光”也只是偶然现象,并非钧釉真正意义上的着色机理.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Archibald Hutcheson M.P. (c. 1659-1740 was a British politician who opposed the South Sea Company's scheme to offer holders of British government debt its own shares in exchange for their claims on the state. Hutcheson proposed an alternative scheme to pay off the entire debt by increasing taxes on land. Despite Hutcheson’s opposition to the South Sea conversion scheme, it went ahead, to be followed by the South Sea Bubble and then the bursting of the bubble with the crash of the London stock market in 1720. Scholar Richard Dale has argued that Hutcheson predicted the crash by using sophisticated financial techniques. Refuting Dale’s view, this article argues that Hutcheson’s posthumous reputation as a savant is undeserved.

    In connection with HAZ liquation cracks which occur in the low-C EAW method which is currently used as a field welding process for rails, the effects of the critical carbon content and the critical welding conditions necessary for avoiding crack occurrence are elucidated, and the susceptibility of HAZ liquation cracks for rails is investigated to study the mechanism of crack occurrence. The trend of HAZ liquation cracks of rails is closely related to the difference in the C contents in the weld metal and the base rail metal, and the crack incidence increases with the increase in the difference of the C content in the range of higher than 0.3% C content. On the other hand, crack incidence can be avoided if the difference in the C content is less than 0.2%. Higher welding heat input increases HAZ liquation crack incidence with larger difference in the C contents between the weld metal and the base metal. When the difference in the C content is large, it is desirable to limit the use of high current using large size welding rods. Purification of steel materials by reducing such impurity elements as P and S is effective to reduce the susceptibility of HAZ liquation cracks. 9 refs., 15 figs., 5 tabs.

However,due to many heterogeneous systems and different mobile platforms,high cost of development and maintenance,it is not easy to develop the software for the legacy systems in mobile applications. Thus,using mobile middleware can facilitate in resolving most of the problems. The current mainstream platforms for mobile devices such as smart phones and tablet computers are iOS,Android,Windows Phone etc.,but the skills for the implementation of mobile applications in each platform are different. It leads to high cost and requires more human labor when enterprises want to develop a mobile application software supporting multi-platforms. Middleware makes it easier for software developers to perform communication and input/output,mobile middleware essentially hides the complexities of working in mobile environments,so that it can reduce the difficulty of supporting multi-platforms, decrease the duplication of the development efforts and increase the opportunities of the developed components which can be reused. In this study,to design a mobile middleware framework can support quickly,development efficiently and integration conformably to the new mobile applications servers in the current system.

    Full Text Available A dificuldade em comunicar-se naturalmente, seja através da fala ou da escrita, pode fazer com que uma pessoa seja impedida de demonstrar e desenvolver seus potenciais cognitivos, sociais e criativos. Essa realidade tem sido amplamente estudada, buscando cada vez mais e melhores soluções que contornem tal limitação, pela ciência multidisciplinar conhecida como Comunicação Alternativa e Aumentativa. Dentre as soluções encontradas, algumas delas fazem uso do computador como ferramenta de apoio à comunicação. A predição de palavras e simuladores de teclado para produção textual estão entre essas soluções. Este artigo vem divulgar e discutir os resultados obtidos com a aplicação de um simulador de teclado em conjunto com uma técnica de predição de palavras baseada nos grupos das classes gramaticais da língua portuguesa, o qual oferece ao usuário facilitação na produção de textos com qualidade gramatical. Dados obtidos com adolescentes com seqüelas de paralisia cerebral mostraram que o uso do aplicativo é construtivo, amplia a comunicação e pode auxiliar no processo de aprendizado da língua portuguesa. Ampliar a comunicação sem prejudicar a qualidade gramatical é uma forma de auxiliar no processo de educação e inclusão social de pessoas com deficiência, tornando-as socialmente mais participativas e melhorando a qualidade de suas vidas.The difficulty in communicating naturally, through speech or writing, can impede a person demonstrating and developing his or her cognitive, social and creative abilities. This reality has been thoroughly studied, looking for more and better solutions to circumvent said limitation, using the multidisciplinary science known as Alternative and Augmentative Communication. Among the proposed solutions, some use computers as a tool to support communication. Word prediction and on-screen keyboard simulators used for writing are among such facilitators. This paper presents and discusses the results obtained when keyboard simulator were applied along with word prediction techniques based on grammatical class groups for the Portuguese language; this proposal facilitates writing production with good grammatical quality. Data obtained with adolescents with sequelae from cerebral palsy showed that the use of the software was positive, as it enhanced communication and was useful in the learning process for the Portuguese language. Broadening communication possibilities without prejudice to grammatical quality is a means of aiding in the educational process and social inclusion for people with special needs, so as to enhance social participation and improve quality of life.

    Ten pieces of Egyptian pottery ware and eleven silt samples collected at Hierakonopolis (Nile River, Egypt) were studied by Mössbauer spectroscopy. Three Nile silt samples and three pottery sherds were test fired and refired in an oxidized atmosphere up to 1100°C. Changes of the Mössbauer parameters depend upon the firing temperatures as well as the firing atmosphere. Three kinds of pottery were studied: Plum Red Ware, Straw Tempered Ware, and Orange Ware.

    Ware Pinch is a consequence of breaking of up-down symmetry due to the inductive electric field. This symmetry breaking happens, though up-down symmetry for magnetic surface is assumed. In previous work Ware Pinch and banana orbits were studied for tokamak magnetic surface with ellipticity and triangularity, but up-down symmetry. Hole currents appear in large tokamaks and their influence in Ware Pinch and banana orbits are now considered here for tokamaks magnetic surfaces with ellipticity and triangularity.

    A tropical clime culture, the sugar cane is planted mainly in underdeveloped countries, being a important economic source. The agricultural sector received during many years funds for technological development, but the sugar cane pressing system did not receive significant technical evolution since the fifties. One of the problem needs solution is the low quality of the raw material, caused by the difficulty of the reaping operation, it causes exaggerated addiction of impurities. The industrial ware down in plants and distilleries does not come exclusively from the action from mineral impurities, occurring also in the processing of pure raw material, free of soil, but is known that the great increase in ware down especially in the extraction system due to the presence of soil on the cane. Keeping the level of minerals to the minimum, makes the ware down to follow to acceptable technical and economical levels. This paper discusses the possibility of quantify the ware down of the extraction equipment by neutron activation of samples collected in one sugar cane plant. For that, the study of the behavior of the elements from sugar cane itself and soil present as impurity and the ware down of the metallic equipment. It was not possible quantify any addition of ware down elements in cane and its derivatives, by the processing system. The iron demonstrated to be a potential tracer element of ware down but the high rates of soil makes difficult the measurement of this element, when proceeding from of the ware down. The reason iron/scandium might be useful in identification of iron of mechanical ware down origin, serving as label of soil origin. Iron and thorium are good tracers of soil in sugar cane loads, being usable for the determination of the impurities levels once known their concentration in the sugar cane original soils. 70 refs., 9 figs., 16 tabs.

    In the course of a study of pottery from Celtic Central Europe, we report on an investigation of pottery found in the context of a Celtic ditched square enclosure near the modern town of Bopfingen in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. The studied pottery may be visually subdivided into wheel-turned ware, graphite ware, and coarse ware. The Moessbauer spectra are surprisingly uniform, indicating that all types of pottery were fired in a similar manner. Firing in a reducing environment at 800 {sup 0}C was usually followed by re-oxidation during cooling, which leads to unique features in the low temperature Moessbauer patterns.

  20. Smith's Sentiments (1759) and Wright's Passions (1601): the beginnings of sociology.

    Barbalet, Jack

    2005-06-01

    Treatments of sources of Adam Smith's sociological theory of the self and associated ideas in The Theory of Moral Sentiments typically refer to classical antecedents or the work of his teacher Francis Hutcheson or his contemporary David Hume. During the seventeenth century, however, many books on the passions were published in London that arguably constitute an important but neglected source of Smith's treatment of moral sentiments. These works are largely forgotten today but at the time were widely read. They are not philosophical, partly devotional and predominantly psychological. Although Smith does not refer to these works his argument resembles theirs in many places. The importance of the seventeenth-century books on the passions, apart from their role in the history of psychology, is their bearing on contemporary economic practices. In this paper the connections between Smith and one of these books, Thomas Wright's The Passions of the Minde in Generall, are indicated.

    An important ceramics material dated back to the 12th-14th centuries has been excavated in Pergamon (Turkey). Among these findings, wasters, tripod stilts and unfinished ware attest to local production in the Byzantine period. Elemental analysis by the methods PIXE (Particle Induced X-ray Emission) and INAA (Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis) has been performed on a representative sampling of 160 sherds, including attested local material. Multivariate statistical techniques were used to classify the sherds into groups of similar composition and thus to distinguish ceramics made in Pergamon from imported wares. Several groups of local production have been constituted, which correspond to wares differing in date and fabric. The geochemical characterization of the pastes, complemented with petrographical and mineralogical data, shows that specific raw materials have been used to manufacture each ware. The analytical data related to ceramics made in Pergamon will serve as reference data for future provenance studies. Such reference groups of Byzantine ceramics are very rare, and therefore the ceramics imported into Pergamon cannot be attributed as to their origin. Among the ceramics widely diffused in the Byzantine world, some importations belonging to the ``fine sgraffito`` and ``Zeuxippus ware`` types have been identified. The latter type has been a source of stylistic influence for the workshops of Pergamon, since the analyses show that imitated ``Zeuxippus ware`` has been produced there. These imitations were probably themselves diffused on a regional scale. (author). 238 refs., 48 figs., 53 tabs., 22 photos., 8 appends.

  9. Configuring a Context-Aware Middleware for Wireless Sensor Networks

    Full Text Available In the Future Internet, applications based on Wireless Sensor Networks will have to support reconfiguration with minimum human intervention, depending on dynamic context changes in their environment. These situations create a need for building these applications as adaptive software and including techniques that allow the context acquisition and decisions about adaptation. However, contexts use to be made up of complex information acquired from heterogeneous devices and user characteristics, making them difficult to manage. So, instead of building context-aware applications from scratch, we propose to use FamiWare, a family of middleware for Ambient Intelligence specifically designed to be aware of contexts in sensor and smartphone devices. It provides both, several monitoring services to acquire contexts from devices and users, and a context-awareness service to analyze and detect context changes. However, the current version of FamiWare does not allow the automatic incorporation related to the management of new contexts into the FamiWare family. To overcome this shortcoming, in this work, we first present how to model the context using a metamodel to define the contexts that must to be taken into account in an instantiation of FamiWare for a certain Ambient Intelligence system. Then, to configure a new context-aware version of FamiWare and to generate code ready-to-install within heterogeneous devices, we define a mapping that automatically transforms metamodel elements defining contexts into elements of the FamiWare family, and we also use the FamiWare configuration process to customize the new context-aware variant. Finally, we evaluate the benefits of our process, and we analyze both that the new version of the middleware works as expected and that it manages the contexts in an efficient way.

    With the aim of contributing to the knowledge of north-Mesopotamian Bronze Age pottery production (3rd millennium BC, early Dynastic and early Akkadian period), the mineralogy of pottery excavated from the site of Tell Beydar (Syria) has been studied in order to make inferences concerning the clay preparation and firing techniques of that period. The fired pottery finds have been classified by archaeologists into three distinct groups on the basis of their aesthetic and visual appearance and their mechanical strength: standard, cooking and “metallic” ware. SR X-ray powder diffraction data have been collected from 100 individual shards as well as from local clays and one unbaked object, an inscribed tablet. The XRD data is supplemented by SEM-EDS, XRF and polarising microscopy studies of 200 polished thin sections. The synthesis of the results from this extensive study quantifies the basic physical characteristics of the ensemble: the standard ware required no specific clay preparation and firing procedures. The body of the cooking ware contains large inclusions which result in a body texture intended to make them resistant to repeated thermal cycles. Both standard and cooking ware are made of a calcareous clay, typical of pottery from the Middle East. The metallic ware, however, are of a much finer quality with a distinctly different mineralogy than the other two groups.

    Full Text Available This paper aims to investigate the effects of logistic performance on international trade flows. In order to analyse empirically the impact of logistics on trade, two kinds of logistic indicators are considered: hard-ware and software indicators. A gravity model augmented with hard-ware and software variables is estimated. Moreover, geographical and social variables are also included as determinants of trade flows. Hard-ware indicators represent overland and maritime infrastructure endow-ments, and also how well countries are connected in the world economy, and software indicators reflect the logistics management performance in different countries. The results of this research indicate that investing in logistics leads to improve and maintain the level of competitiveness.

The work was to inquire into their chemical composition and the phase of part of minerals by using X-ray fluorescene analysis and X-ray diffraction analysis, as well as to classify the pottery shards by applying major components analysis and cluster analysis. The results suggest that the pottery of Dadiwan I is principally sandy and clay wares,featuring unevenness in firing temperature and impurity in surface color. In the second phase, part of clay ware was made of refined clay, and there prevailed black-painted red ware. The Dadiwan pottery is quite complex in the chemical composition of the body and probably contains objects coming from the outside.

    More than 80 pieces of T`ang Dynasty and 40 Han Dynasty style ceramic wares have been analysed to determine the amount of thermoluminescence (TL) accumulated since the initial firing of the object and the level of the radiation flux which has created the TL. This paper presents a summary of the thermoluminescence analysis results. Approximately 60% of Han ceramics and 45% of the T`ang pottery authenticated have been shown to belong to periods other than that stylistically suggested. Items which have been found not to be of the anticipated antiquity generally fall into distinct age groups. Of the T`ang wares the most commonly copied item is found to be the horse and for the Han pieces, human figures and ewers/pots/vases represent the most frequently reproduced wares.

The final objective of the research is prevention and health promotion in the Civita Castellana small pottery industries area which is involved in an increase technological change. It is analized two pottery firms (one of table-ware and one of sanitary-ware) by the Method of Organizational Congruences (MOC) (Maggi, 1984, 1990) applied in Ergonomics for studying organization and well-being (Maggi, Grieco, 1986). This method allows to identify the Organizational Constraints (OC) as a reduction of individual liberty of action due to organizational choice. Tableware (25%) and sanitaryware (44%) are the most representitive production of the Civita Castellana district. It is studied manually sanitary-ware production, caracterized by storehouse; clay and enamels preparation; molding by clay casting; testing; enamelling; firing and selecting, and a half-automated tableware production mostly caracterized by storehouse, clay and enamel preparation; filter pressing; automated molting; firing biscuitware; manually and automatic decoration; enamelling; double firing and final touches. The MOC has an analytical point of view so it is impossible to synthetize in few words the whole different OC observed. For this reason it is choosen the most important and typical ones. In sanitary-ware factory are: silica powder, work load, inadequate posture, high-speed self rhytm and repetition of simple task, working hours (4 a.m. -11 a.m. ); microclimate and noise in enamelling area. In table-ware factory are: noise and compulsory rhytm due to automatic machine, repetition of simple task requiring attention mostly in the decoration area, solvents, microclimate, inadequate posture, workload and silica powder (less than sanitary-ware).

    We discuss a mathematical model of migration channel based on the truncated Waring distribution. The truncated Waring distribution is obtained for a more general model of motion of substance through a channel containing finite number of boxes. The model is applied then for case of migrants moving through a channel consisting of finite number of countries or cities. The number of migrants in the channel strongly depends on the number of migrants that enter the channel through the country of entrance. It is shown that if the final destination country is very popular then large percentage of migrants may concentrate there.

    Tolerant soybean (Glycine max [L.] Merr.) cultivars aid in reducing salt damage in problem fields. New genes are important to reduce losses from salt injury. Objectives of this study were to determine inheritance of salt tolerance in wild soybean (Glycine soja Sieb. and Zucc.) PI483463 and to test allelism of tolerance genes from genotypes PI483463 and S-100, a common ancestor of southern in US cultivars. Tolerant (T) PI483463 was crossed to sensitive (S) cultivar Hutcheson to study inheritance. PI483463 (T) was crossed with S-100 (T) to test for allelism. Parents, F(1) plants, F(2) populations, and F(2:3) lines were assayed in a 100 mM salt solution to determine tolerance. F(2) from T x S cross segregated 3(T):1 (S) and the F(2:3) lines responded 1 (T): 2 (segregating):1 (S). F(2) plants from PI483463 (T) x S-100 (T) segregated 15 (T):1 (S) indicating different genes from the 2 sources. Results showed that G. soja line PI483463 had a single dominant gene for salt tolerance, which was different than the gene in G. max line S-100. The symbol, Ncl2, was designated for this new salt tolerance allele.

  10. Does classical liberalism imply democracy?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    David Ellerman

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available There is a fault line running through classical liberalism as to whether or not democratic self-governance is a necessary part of a liberal social order. The democratic and non-democratic strains of classical liberalism are both present today—particularly in the United States. Many contemporary libertarians and neo-Austrian economists represent the non-democratic strain in their promotion of non-democratic sovereign city-states (start-up cities or charter cities. We will take the late James M. Buchanan as a representative of the democratic strain of classical liberalism. Since the fundamental norm of classical liberalism is consent, we must start with the intellectual history of the voluntary slavery contract, the coverture marriage contract, and the voluntary non-democratic constitution (or pactum subjectionis. Next we recover the theory of inalienable rights that descends from the Reformation doctrine of the inalienability of conscience through the Enlightenment (e.g. Spinoza and Hutcheson in the abolitionist and democratic movements. Consent-based governments divide into those based on the subjects’ alienation of power to a sovereign and those based on the citizens’ delegation of power to representatives. Inalienable rights theory rules out that alienation in favor of delegation, so the citizens remain the ultimate principals and the form of government is democratic. Thus the argument concludes in agreement with Buchanan that the classical liberal endorsement of sovereign individuals acting in the marketplace generalizes to the joint action of individuals as the principals in their own organizations.

    Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) support triggers adaptations within failing hearts. The HeartWare (HeartWare International, Inc., Framingham, MA) LVAD exhibits different flow profiles and afterload dependence compared with previous-generation devices, which may alter remodelling patterns. We sought to characterize myocardial adaptation to third-generation centrifugal-flow LVADs at a functional, hemodynamic, and structural level in addition to profiling transcriptomal changes using next-generation sequencing platforms. We studied 37 patients supported with the HeartWare device with paired measurements of invasive hemodynamics, serial longitudinal left ventricular (LV) and right ventricular (RV) 3-dimensional echocardiography, and N-terminal of the prohormone brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) measurements. Paired samples for comparison of histologic myocardial cellular size and transcriptomal profiling were performed on specimens taken at pump implant and transplantation. The mean support duration was 280 ± 163 days. Mechanical unloading after HeartWare support resulted in reduced filling pressures (mean pulmonary capillary wedge pressure 27.1 ± 6.6 to 14.8 ± 5.1 mm Hg, p hypertrophy, and an improvement in LV and RV ejection fractions.

    Full Text Available AIM: To study the retinal function in patients with diabetic macular edema after photocoagulation. METHODS: A total of 30 eyes in 19 patients with diabetic macular edema(DME, who were diagnosed through fundus fluorescein angiography, consecutively recruited from March 2010 to March 2014 and were treated with macular grid pattern photocoagulation. Multifocal electroretinogram(mfERGsystem(version 3.15was performed before and after photocoagulation therapy for 3mo. All data were statistically analyzed. RESULTS: The amplitude densities of a-ware and b-ware for the fovea increased after macular grid pattern photocoagulation therapy, and there were significantly changes relative to its preoperation(t=-3.7683, Pt=-3.6570, Pt=1.7103, P>0.05; t=1.5623, P>0.05 . Compared with pretreatment, the amplitude densities of a-ware and b-ware at macular were statistically larger(t=4.8337, Pt=-2.0376, Pt=-2.1892, Pt=-3.5024, Pt=-1.4387, P>0.05; t=-0.1766, P>0.05. It was significant longer in the latency of a-wave and b-wave at paramacular after photocoagulation(t=-2.0905, Pt=-2.5646, PCONCLUSION: The laser photocoagulation treatment for DME can improve the retinal function at fovea, which benefits the vision acuity. Unfortunately,it induces extensively damaging effects on the macula and paramacular.

  19. Buckley Sgraffito: a study of a 17th century pottery industry in North Wales, its production techniques and design influences

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Christine Longworth

    2004-07-01

    Full Text Available The area around Buckley in north Wales has been associated with the production of pottery since the 13th or 14th centuries. Nineteen different pottery sites have been identified, producing a wide range of ceramic wares in the six-hundred year period up to the mid-20th century. In the 17th and 18th centuries, many of the wares produced were of high quality, on a par with Staffordshire wares of the same date. In the early 17th century, the technique of sgraffito decoration spread to north Devon and Somerset from mainland Europe. Buckley is the only known site to produce early sgraffito wares in northern Britain. This article aims to establish the date of the production and range of early sgraffito wares at Buckley and to examine the derivation of the designs and illustrations on the vessels. An illustrated catalogue has been produced and a comparative study made of sgraffito wares elsewhere to place Buckley into a national and international context. The results show that early sgraffito production at Brookhill pottery, Buckley, was between 1640-1720. Of the excavated pieces, 62% were made between 1640-1680, and the number of sherds by vessel number is also greater within that date range. All the vessels are dishes. The form and designs on the remainder of the sherds, dated up to 1720, are no different from those dated to 1640-1680, which suggests a continuous period of production. The most common themes on the pots – tulips, leaves, mottoes, animals and birds – relate very closely to the designs featured on other objects made in the same period such as textiles, wallpaper, furniture and manuscripts. Some of the designs were available in pattern books for particular groups of objects, for example needlework and pastry decoration. There is an interesting sub-group of pieces with animal and bird motifs and mottoes on the rims. It is possible that the influence for these came from a resurgence of interest in the medieval bestiary texts and

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available The main goal was to understand the dynamic process of vegetation colonizing an area degraded by the extraction of gold. The study area was stratified into three environments and, in each environment, contiguous ten plots of 100m 2 each were allocated. For the realization of the dynamics, two surveys of shrub-tree with level of inclusion (DAS30 > 3 cm were carried out. The first one was realized in 2008 and second in 2010. In 2010, the new individuals that met the criterion for inclusion (recruits were marked and measured, the dead registered and the survivors were measured again. The rates of mortality, recruitment, gain and loss in basal area of each environment were calculated and it became evident the importance of dynamics as a tool to help understand the relationships of ecological succession of species. The Shannon diversity index among the three environments were compared by t-test of Hutcheson and it was used the analysis of indicator species to determine species preferences of each of the three pre-determined environments.The total number of individuals passed of 707 to 909 in two years of interval, reinforcing the importance of natural regeneration processes of ecological succession. The environment II remained the most abundant one despite it presented a high mortality rate, which can be explained by the high rate of recruitment. The species Eremanthus incanus, Trembleya laniflora, Trembleya parviflora, Roupala montana, Coccoloba brasiliensis and Tibouchina candoleana, presented higher importance of value in the two surveys, showing superiority in the colonization of the area degraded by the extraction of gold and could be indicated in programs for the recuperation of degraded areas that are in similar conditions in the region of Diamantina municipality.

    Full Text Available El fin del presente ensayo es mostrar cómo debería ser entendido hoy el término utilitarismo desde la economía política y desde la filosofía moral. Generalmente se asocia el término utilitario a una persona o a una acción política o social con una calificación despectiva, que da a entender una posición altamente egoísta de utilización fría y calculadora. Lo que no debería de ser así, ya que el fin que perseguían los filósofos y economistas del siglo XVIII como: Francis Hutcheson, Adam Smith, Jeremy Bentham y John Stuart Mill fue la de ilustrar cuál es la importancia social de buscar en cada una de las acciones particulares el bienestar general. Es decir, encontrar la mejor manera de mostrar el mal que representa tanto para sí mismo como para la construcción de una sociedad prospera y pujante el egoísmo (selfishness. Por lo tanto, el utilitarismo debería ser visto y entendido como la preocupación filosófica y de la economía política más importante (desde el siglo XVIII hasta nuestros días en la búsqueda por el bienestar social como un todo. En otras palabras, lo bueno que por naturaleza significa para el hombre la satisfacción en el cuidado de su yo social, en su self love.

    Titanium cranioplasty is one of the well-established and widely used techniques for repairing cranial defects. In this paper, we present an improved way to design and create titanium meshes with more evaluation process. Computed tomography scan data of patients were used to create three-dimensional virtual models. Implants were designed with NX ImageWare 13.2 (Siemens PLM Software, Plano, TX). Final titanium meshes were assessed by Geomagic Studio 12 (Geomagic, Inc., Morrisville, NC) and NX ImageWare 13.2.Titanium meshes were designed and applied to cranioplasty surgery on 8 patients. Postoperative results were evaluated by computed tomography scanning and further analyzed with rainbow difference tomography. All patients were satisfied with the outcome. With this method, surgeons, engineers, and patients work together to evaluate and edit implant design. Our method provides better communication and comprehensive evaluation, which result in a satisfying outcome.

    Full Text Available Daniel Clowes is undoubtedly one of the most influential and prolific cartoonists working today, with a career spanning many decades. 'The Daniel Clowes Reader' (Parille 2013 comes at the perfect time – when interest in Clowes from scholars and critics is at a high, but in which he is still perhaps given less critical attention than his peers Chris Ware, Art Spiegelman, and Marjane Satrapi, all of whom are cited twice as often as Clowes despite his large canon of significant works in comics. With recent books being published on Chris Ware by The University Press of Mississippi and the forthcoming Art Spiegelman collection from Drawn and Quarterly, more significant focused, monographic books are emerging in comics and comics criticism, and 'The Daniel Clowes Reader' is a more than welcome addition to this emergence.

    We have been studied to find out the experimental methods and procedures for neutron diffraction method for neutron diffractometer in HANARO -the atomic research reactor in KAERI. We have studied experimental process for the neutron diffraction data analysis, using computer soft-wares such as SHELXS for the calculation the initial phase of crystal structure, SHELXL for refinement of atomic coordinate using least-squares method, ORTEP for the display of the calculated positions of molecule, and PATSEE for the calculation of the phase from the expected structure. In these studies, we analyzed the structure of test sample using these programs, and prepare the user's manual for these soft-wares. We have also studied on bending effect of monochromator in order to increase the intensity of neutron beam, and designed HRPD - High Resolution Powder Diffractometers. 7 refs., 6 figs. (Author)

    1994-12-01

    Twelve ceramic sherds unearthed from different archaeological layers at a neolithic site in Tung Wan, Hong Kong, were studied by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Mössbauer spectroscopy. The results show that the firing techniques used for ancient pottery wares at different layers were very different. For the oldest sherds (4000 3000 B.C.) from layer No. 4, the original firing temperature was low and craftmanship was inferior. For the sherds (1650 250 B.C.) from layer No. 2, the original firing temperature was above 1000 ‡C. In addition, the results indicate that the ancient pottery wares from the ruins might not have been manufactured in the Tung Wan region.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fleming, S. J.; Swann, C. P.

    1992-02-01

    The early 9th century A.D. trade links between China's Tang dynasty and the Western world, by land along the caravan routes of the Silk Road and by sea via India and the Gulf, encouraged a taste for many kinds of Chinese ceramics among the affluent societies of the Islamic empire. Using PIXE analysis to determine the primary composition and minor element patterns of the clay fabrics of a wide range of pottery recovered from the Islamic city of Siraf (in southern Iran), we have established clear differences between Chinese wares imported to that region and a variety of imitative wares of local origin. Parallels and contrasts are drawn between our data and those obtained by Chinese scholars in recent years for the products of various Tang kiln sites, particularly for a series of distinctive stonewares from Tongguan (Hunan province).

    A generalisation of Waring's problem, considered first by Arkhipov and Karatsuba, is the question of representing not an integer, but a given polynomial, as a sum of powers of linear polynomials. We investigate a related problem and prove a Hasse principle for the number of identical representations of a set of given forms by homogeneous polynomials of general shape. The result leads to sizeable improvements for estimates of the number of linear spaces on the intersection of hypersurfaces.

    2012-08-01

    To estimate the contribution of aluminium (Al) leaching from different materials used for food preparation and serving to the dietary Al intake, Al release from foodware typically used in everyday life was investigated using multilevel factorial design (MFD) of experiments. For Al characterisation, sample preparation and an analytical method using inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy was developed and validated. Parameter influence (temperature: x₁, contact time: x₂, pH: x₃, salt concentration: x₄, viscosity: x₅), was evaluated with analysis of variance suggesting that the influence of viscosity is not significant compared to the other four studied parameters. Therefore, predictive, exponential quadratic regression models were established with x₁-x₄. Cross-validation and a set of independent experiments in real food products were used to test the prediction force of the different models. They both suggest that the quality of the models established for Al foil, Al plate and ceramic ware is satisfactory, but less good for glassware and stainless steel. Indeed, in the studied conditions, leaching from these latter food wares was often close to or even below the limit of quantification suggesting that the principal sources of Al intake from food contact materials during food processing are utensils made of Al and ceramic ware.

  1. Online approach to feature interaction problems in middleware based system

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    HUANG Gang; LIU XuanZhe; MEI Hong

    2008-01-01

    As a popular infrastructure for distributed systems running on the Internet, middle-ware has to support much more diverse and complex interactions for coping with the drastically increasing demand on information technology and the extremely open and dynamic nature of the Internet. These supporting mechanisms facilitate the development, deployment, and integration of distributed systems, as well as increase the occasions for distributed systems to interact in an undesired way. The undesired interactions may cause serious problems, such as quality violation, function loss, and even system crash. In this paper, the problem is studied from the perspective of the feature interaction problem (FIP) in telecom, and an online ap-proach to the detection and solution on runtime systems is proposed. Based on a classification of middleware enabled interactions, the existence of FIP in middle-ware based systems is illustrated by four real cases and a conceptual comparison between middleware based systems and telecom systems. After that, runtime soft-ware architecture is employed to facilitate the online detection and solution of FIP. The approach is demonstrated on J2EE (Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition) and applied to detect and resolve all of the four real cases.

    In 1991, the Yunnan Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology, in co-operation with other institutions, carried out the secondary excavation in the Jiangchuan Lijiashan cemetery. The 60 excavated tombs are all earth-pit graves without clear data on coffins and fall into three types: large-, medium- and small-sized. Among the grave goods are bronzes, irons, gold- and silver-wares, jade, agate and other precious stone artifacts, bamboo articles and wooden objects. The bronzes and irons include mainly implements of production and weapons, and also instruments of funeral ritual. According to the stratigraphical evidence of the cemetery and changes in the combination of funeral objects, the tombs can be divided into four phases. The first phase contains 28 mediun and small-sized tombs with irons as the main grave goods and without bronze-and-iron compound objects, and goes back to the mid Western Han period, prior to Wudi's reign. The second phase is represented by Tombs M47 and MS1, both furnished with a second-tier platform and containing a two-person joint burial. The large-sized tomb yielded bronze weapons, hoes, spades, and a tomb-figurine of a male holding an umbrella. The medium and small tombs are furnished chiefly with bronzes, and also a few bronze-and-iron compound articles. They date from the mid and late Western Han period. The third phase is represented by Tomb M82 and features the increase of bronze-and-silver ware. The large-sized tomb contains less bronze-ware; in the medium and small graves, bronze-and-iron ware, irons, horse trappings and lacquer-ware occur commonly. They can be assigned to the time from the late Western Han to the early Eastern Han period. The fourth phase comprises only three tombs, M49 and other two. Their funeral objects feature the sharp discrease of Dian-style articles and the emergence of Han-style objects,such as fu cauldrons, zeng steamers and incense burners. They go back to the earlier Eastern Han period.

    中国陶瓷源远流长。中国在新石器时代的早期就发明了陶器,至今约有一万年。汉代是陶器艺术发展的一个重要时期,并开始了由陶向瓷的演变。浙江是中国瓷器的发源地。中国瓷器分为两大系统:青瓷系和白瓷系,唐代形成双峰对峙,称"南青北白",至宋代,形成了五大名窑。官窑哥窑等名窑工艺曾一度失传,解放后在周恩来总理的指示下,专家经过多年研究使名瓷重放光彩。作为一种日用与艺术结合的产品,陶瓷的应用与收藏有着最为广泛的群众基础。%Ceramics has a long standing tradition in China.Pottery which was invented in early Neolithic period has a history of over 10,000 years.Han Dynasty was an important period in ceramic history,which witnessed the transformation from pottery to porcelain.Zhejiang was one of the historical origins for Chinese porcelain.Chinese historical porcelain could be classified into two systems: celadonwares and whitewares.The two systems rivaled one another in Tang Dynasty with celadon wares dominating the South and whitewares the North.In Song Dynasty,the Five Famous Wares achieved eminence.However,ceramic making technologies of Kuan Ware and Ko Ware were lost.After the founding of the People's Republic of China,ceramic experts revived these wares through years of research according to the instruction of Premier Zhou Enlai.As a product of function and art,ceramics has the widest popularity among the public for collection and daily use.

    一般认为,是两种观念确立了美学的现代形态:一是“无利害性”,另一种是“审美静观”理论,而且这两种观念滥觞于18世纪夏夫兹伯里、哈奇森、艾迪生等美学家的思想体系中,在康德那里得到了确认。但是通过对奥古斯丁思想中“爱的教义”、“使用”与“享用”关系的分析,能够发现,奥古斯丁早已把“无利害性”、“审美静观”的理论囊括进其思想系统中去了。因此,现代形态的关学的先驱者们就不能再局限于夏夫兹伯里、哈奇森、艾迪生等人,而应该追溯到奥古斯丁,离开了奥古斯丁以及以奥古斯丁为代表的中世纪美学传统,现代美学的许多观念就找不到其源头。%Scholars argue that there are two concepts which formed the modem aesthetics, the one is "disinterested" and the other is "aesthetic contemplation". And the concepts are used in eighteenth - century British thought by Lord Shaftesbury, Addison and Hutcheson. This paper tries to analyze St. Augustine~ two key theories, viz, the dogmatics of love, the differ- ence of Uti and Frui, and to show that it was St. Augustine who promulgated the lexicon of the categories and terms that, some fourteen hundred years later, came to constitute the "disinterested" and the contemplation model of the theory of aesthetics. Therefore, people should trace the concept of " disinterested"," aesthetic contemplation" to St. Augustine, otherwise people could not find the origins of Modem Aesthetics.

    The basic function of a manufacturer's production support engineering unit is to identify, document, and dispose of hardware that does not conform to drawing requirements. CAMRAD, a program designed for rapid input and retrieval of all data used in engineering-to-manufacturing support operations, aids the engineer by automating the material review disposition process. Before CAMRAD, material review record searches were manual. The time spent searching through old documents precluded the timely disposition of new material reviews. CAMRAD facilitates the research of material review histories and provides for the efficient processing of material review documents. Three SmartWare project files control the operation of CAMRAD. The project file CAMRAD initializes variables for the other project files and specifies the pathing of the CAMRAD program, database files, and document files. The project file DATARAD controls all data management functions. The database consists of individual files containing all records of specific hardware discrepancies for a given part number. There are four basic avenues for records searches: part serial number, feature, Material Review (MR) number, and non-conformance. WORDRAD is the project file which controls the management of document files created when processing a material review disposition. Given a material review report identifying a defective hardware item, the production support engineer can use CAMRAD to quickly search the database for any history of the same problem, find out how well the problem has been documented, and create appropriate documentation for this latest occurrence. CAMRAD is written in the Smart Programming Language and is designed to run on IBM PC compatibles with the SmartWare v. 3.1 software package available from Informix Software. CAMRAD was developed in 1987. SmartWare is a registered trademark of Informix Software, Inc. IBM PC is a registered trademark of International Business Machines Corporation.

    Full Text Available The realization of e-city is a necessary component for achieving the green city. This paper outlines a vision for an e-city platform that is based on knowledge brokerage in the green city. The proposed platform will be a venue for creating dynamic virtual organizations to harness collective intelligence of knowledge hubs to analyze and manage sustainability knowledge in urban areas. Knowledge assets of participating organizations will be presented in three dimensions: process structures, human profile and software systems. These three facets of knowledge will be accessible and viewable through a self-describing mechanism. Cities can post their geospatial and real-time data on the net. Relevant environmental and energy-use data will be extracted using topic maps and data extraction services. Local decision makers can synchronize work processes (from participating hubs to create an integrated workflow for a new ad hoc virtual organization to collaboratively analyze the multifaceted nature of sustainable decision making. An e-city platform is envisioned in this paper that will be realized through intelligent, agent-like, domain-specific middleware (KnowWare. Through triangulation between people, software and processes, these KnowWare will discover, negotiate, integrate, reason and communicate knowledge (related to energy and environment from across organizations to the right person at the right time. KnowWare is fundamentally, a portal of social semantic services that resides on a cloud computing infrastructure. Knowware exploits thee main tools: 1 existing ontologies to represent knowledge in a semantic manner, 2 topic maps to profile sources of knowledge and match these to the complex needs of sustainability analysis, 3 domain-specific middleware for knowledge integration and reasoning.

    The circulation and exchange of goods and resources at various scales have long been considered central to the understanding of complex societies, and the Andes have provided a fertile ground for investigating this process. However, long-standing archaeological emphasis on typological analysis, although helpful to hypothesize the direction of contacts, has left important aspects of ancient exchange open to speculation. To improve understanding of ancient exchange practices and their potential role in structuring alliances, we examine material exchanges in northwest Argentina (part of the south-central Andes) during 400 BC to AD 1000 (part of the regional Formative Period), with a multianalytical approach (petrography, instrumental neutron activation analysis, laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry) to artifacts previously studied separately. We assess the standard centralized model of interaction vs. a decentralized model through the largest provenance database available to date in the region. The results show: (i) intervalley heterogeneity of clays and fabrics for ordinary wares; (ii) intervalley homogeneity of clays and fabrics for a wide range of decorated wares (e.g., painted Ciénaga); (iii) selective circulation of two distinct polychrome wares (Vaquerías and Condorhuasi); (iv) generalized access to obsidian from one major source and various minor sources; and (v) selective circulation of volcanic rock tools from a single source. These trends reflect the multiple and conflicting demands experienced by people in small-scale societies, which may be difficult to capitalize by aspiring elites. The study undermines centralized narratives of exchange for this period, offering a new platform for understanding ancient exchange based on actual material transfers, both in the Andes and beyond.

    Full Text Available In order for the Open Access (OA to learning concept to a have wider impact in formal education, it is important that faculty members intent to adopt new educational innovations. However, little is known about which variables influence the intention of faculty members. Therefore, the purposes of this study are to empirically determine: 1 which of the characteristics of the educational innovation significantly influence the intention to adopt educational innovations, 2 which variables influence the readiness of faculty members intention to adopt educational innovations, and 3 how the characteristics of the innovations moderate the relationship between faculty readiness and intention to adopt the innovations. Participants of this study include 335 faculty members in ABET certified computer science and electrical engineering programs in the United States. The results show that ease of use is positively related to the intention of faculty members to adopt an educational innovation. We conclude that Open-CourseWare developers need to ensure that ease of use is emphasized in the CourseWare and they need to propagate these initially in institutions where faculty members have positive attitude to the CourseWare and care about student learning. In addition, a new method of identifying, building, and funding “open access grant” universities that develop easy-to-use educational innovations, make them available on an open access platform, and spread them widely by embedding agents in community colleges, schools, and other educational institutions is essential. Such an initiative may lead to wider adoption of MOOCS and other open access materials.

    Ventricular assist devices (VADs) have become an established therapeutic option for patients with end-stage heart failure. Achieving the potential for recovery of native heart function using VADs is an established form of treatment in a selected group of patients with HF. We report two cases of VAD patients with different types of pump used for mechanical circulatory support, a continuous flow pump (Heart-Ware(®)) and a pulsatile pump (POLVAD MEV(®)), which allow regeneration of the native heart. Patients were qualified as INTERMACS level 3-4 for elective implantation of an LVAD. Implantations were performed without complications. The postoperative course was uncomplicated. In the HeartWare patient the follow-up was complicated by episodes of epistaxis and recurrent GIB as well as driveline infection. The follow-up of the POLVAD MEV patient was uneventful. Recurrent GIB forced us to withdraw aspirin and warfarin therapy and maintain only clopidogrel in the HeartWare patient.. In mid-February 2013 the patient was admitted due to dysfunction of the centrifugal pump with a continuous low-flow alarm and increase power consumption. Under close monitoring of the patient a decision was made to stop the pump immediately and evaluate cardiac function. The serial echocardiography studies showed significant improvement in LVEF up to 45% and no significant valvular pathology. In February 2013 LVAD explant was performed by left thoracotomy without complications. At six-month follow-up the patient was in a good clinical condition, in NYHA class I/II, and on pharmacological treatment.

The application of computational soft ware helps to show the influence of back work ratio or coupling ratio, compressor and turbine in let temperatures in an ideal thermodynamical cycle. The results lead to deduce that the maximum value reached in back work ratio will depend on the ranges of maximum and minimal temperatures of Brayton cycle.

    Pulmonary diseases diagnostics always occupies one of the key positions in medicine practices. A large variety of high technology methods are used today, but none of them cannot be used for early screening of pulmonary diseases. We discuss abilities of methods of IR and terahertz laser spectroscopy for noninvasive express diagnostics of pulmonary diseases on a base of analysis of absorption spectra of patient's gas emission, in particular, exhaled air. Experience in the field of approaches to experimental data analysis and hard-ware realization of gas analyzers for medical applications is also discussed.
