  1. Croatian "Judiths"

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Teodora Vigato

    2016-02-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, the authors deal with various interpretations in Croatian literature of the biblical Judith and Marulić’s Judith. They begin with the story of Judith from Zadar whose anonymous authors had the task to spread the biblical story of the courageous Judith. Then they speak about Judith in the works of Antun Gleđević and Ignjat Đurđević, in the Baroque literature of Dubrovnik, in the context of the Dubrovnik melodramatic or pseudolibretistic production. The paper highlights the Slavonian Judith, that is, her interludes and concludes with the contemporary Judiths of Miro Gavran and Boris Senker. The biblical text has served also as an inspiration for various interpretations in a wide range of performances, from musical to puppet theatre. Each author followed the point of view, the artistically specific, poetic, structural and technical requirements of the genre and placed the main character and her story in a new intertextual or media content.

  6. Robinson-Foulds Supertrees

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Eulenstein Oliver

    2010-02-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Supertree methods synthesize collections of small phylogenetic trees with incomplete taxon overlap into comprehensive trees, or supertrees, that include all taxa found in the input trees. Supertree methods based on the well established Robinson-Foulds (RF distance have the potential to build supertrees that retain much information from the input trees. Specifically, the RF supertree problem seeks a binary supertree that minimizes the sum of the RF distances from the supertree to the input trees. Thus, an RF supertree is a supertree that is consistent with the largest number of clusters (or clades from the input trees. Results We introduce efficient, local search based, hill-climbing heuristics for the intrinsically hard RF supertree problem on rooted trees. These heuristics use novel non-trivial algorithms for the SPR and TBR local search problems which improve on the time complexity of the best known (naïve solutions by a factor of Θ(n and Θ(n2 respectively (where n is the number of taxa, or leaves, in the supertree. We use an implementation of our new algorithms to examine the performance of the RF supertree method and compare it to matrix representation with parsimony (MRP and the triplet supertree method using four supertree data sets. Not only did our RF heuristic provide fast estimates of RF supertrees in all data sets, but the RF supertrees also retained more of the information from the input trees (based on the RF distance than the other supertree methods. Conclusions Our heuristics for the RF supertree problem, based on our new local search algorithms, make it possible for the first time to estimate large supertrees by directly optimizing the RF distance from rooted input trees to the supertrees. This provides a new and fast method to build accurate supertrees. RF supertrees may also be useful for estimating majority-rule(- supertrees, which are a generalization of majority-rule consensus trees.

  8. What makes men and women identify with Judith? A Jungian mythological perspective on the feminist value of Judith today

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Helen Efthimiadis-Keith

    2012-08-01

    Full Text Available Inspired by her student’s overwhelmingly positive interpretation of Judith as a model for women’s liberation in diverse African contexts – despite the debate around the feminist value of Judith-Judith – the author deals with what could possibly allow men and women, particularly the latter, to interpret Judith positively today. Given her interest in Jungian individuation theory and Ancient Near Eastern (ANE mythology, the author investigates the subject matter by exploring Judith’s relation to male and female individuation patterns, the myths of the hero’s quest and Demeter-Kore, and ANE warrior-goddess myths.

  11. On The Duality of Robinson Crusoe's character

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    洪佳君; 鄢文娟

    2009-01-01

    Defoe is chiefly remembered as the author of Robinson Crusoe today, his master piece based on a real fact. In this story, Robinson Crusoe was described as a hero, an empire builder, and a super man. People like to talk about Robinson Crusoe, with his adventure and everything he had done when he was facing the obstacles. To some people, Robinson is a giant, a super man, and perfect in all aspects. While some other people think that Robinson has his limits and flaws. This paper deals with his dual nature as an ordinary human being, which guiding directly to the life befalls him.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Anne Jerslev

    2002-09-01

    Full Text Available Iscenesættelse af autenticitet i realityserien Robinson Ekspeditionen er en overordnet tekstuel strategi, som bibringer en fornemmelse af ægt- hed og spontanitet. Artiklen giver eksempler på, hvorledes debattørerne på Robinson Ekspeditionens hjemmeside behandler programmets del- tagere, som om de er «sig selv«, samtidig med at de vurderes på en pa- rameter, der handler om ægthed og falskhed. Debatten på hjemmesiden handler bl.a. om «autenticitetshunger«, og artiklen diskuterer, hvorledes det lykkes for programmet at formidle en iscenesat, men samtidig uin- strueret form for dokumentarisme, samtidig med at deltagerne fungerer som spilfigurer i en stramt redigeret fortælling, der baserer sig på fikti- onens koder.

    Full Text Available The essay discusses Daniel Defoe´s novel Robinson Crusoe , in relationship to the way that the it reflects some of the more important ideas of the eighteenth century English thoughts which provided the climate for the issues it raises. It will examine the historical context of the novel, and discuss the philosophical ideas which had gained so much appeal to men in this new “age of enlightment” and its focus on the nature of man. In Robinson Crusoe, Defoe takes the opportunity to explore the relatioship between “natural man” and man as he is shaped by civilization.

    2015-01-01

    Robinson Crusoe is closely related to the concept of utopia in western culture. However, in so many essays about this novel, this point hasn’t been emphasized or paid enough attention to. As one of the most famous English novels, Robinson Crusoe portrays a hero who actualy builds a utopia with his own hands which makes it different form so many works about utopia. This essay aims at making the analysis of the utopian thoughts in Robinson Crusoe more complete and profound.

  17. Goiter in portraits of Judith the Jewish heroine.

    2016-01-01

    Judith was a legendary Hebrew heroine who beheaded the general Holofernes and saved the children of Israel from destruction by the Assyrian army. In the Book of Judith, which is still present in the Catholic and Orthodox Christian Bibles, Judith is presented as an illustrious woman who defeated the enemy using her virtue and fortitude. The present investigation has revealed 24 portraits in which Judith has been depicted with variable grades of thyroid gland enlargement on the scene where she decapitates Holofernes. There is no doubt that the integration of a slight thyroid enlargement in the paintings is a stylistic hallmark that portrays an idealized female beauty with a balanced neck and graceful body. The large extended goiter was probably depicted by the artists as a symbol of a powerful masculine body and her courage, and at the same time, it probably also reflects better anatomic accuracy and knowledge of artists from that period.

  20. Truth and falsehood in Judith: A Greimassian contribution

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Risimati Synod Hobyane

    2016-04-01

    Full Text Available Narratives are never meant to be neutral in their rhetorical intent. They have power not onlyto reveal realities and prevail worldviews but also to create new realities and new worldviewsby refuting illusions and falsehood, and affirming the truth. The Judith narrative is a goodexample for the exploration of this claim. This article contributes by employing the thematiclevel of analysis, the veridictory square in particular, of the Greimassian approach to narratives,to map out the possible illusions and affirming the truth within the second temple Judaism.The study of the veridictory square as informed by the level of analysis, mentioned above,seems to persuade the reader by first, extracting the truth from illusion and thereafter exposingand shaming falsehood in Judith. Subsequently, the article asserts that Judith is not neutral in itsintent but was designed to deal with illusive ideas that might have been impacting the wellbeingof the second temple Judaism.

  6. Hydrogeology of the Judith River Formation in southwestern Saskatchewan, Canada

    Ferris, David; Lypka, Morgan; Ferguson, Grant

    2017-06-01

    The Judith River Formation forms an important regional aquifer in southwestern Saskatchewan, Canada. This aquifer is used for domestic and agricultural purposes in some areas and supports oil and gas production in other areas. As a result, the available data come from a range of sources and integration is required to provide an overview of aquifer characteristics. Here, data from oil and gas databases are combined with data from groundwater resource assessments. Analysis of cores, drill-stem tests and pumping tests provide a good overview of the physical hydrogeology of the Judith River Aquifer. Water chemistry data from oil and gas databases were less helpful in understanding the chemical hydrogeology due contamination of samples and unreliable laboratory analyses. Analytical modeling of past pumping in the aquifer indicates that decreases in hydraulic head exceeding 2 m are possible over distances of 10s of kilometers. Similar decreases in head should be expected for additional large withdrawals of groundwater from the Judith River Aquifer. Long-term groundwater abstraction should be limited by low pumping rates. Higher pumping rates appear to be possible for short-term uses, such as those required by the oil and gas industry.

  8. Algebraic classification of Robinson-Trautman spacetimes

    CERN Document Server

    Podolsky, Jiri

    2016-01-01

    We consider a general class of four-dimensional geometries admitting a null vector field that has no twist and no shear but has an arbitrary expansion. We explicitly present the Petrov classification of such Robinson-Trautman (and Kundt) gravitational fields, based on the algebraic properties of the Weyl tensor. In particular, we determine all algebraically special subcases when the optically privileged null vector field is a multiple principal null direction (PND), as well as all the cases when it remains a single PND. No field equations are a priori applied, so that our classification scheme can be used in any metric theory of gravity in four dimensions. In the classic Einstein theory this reproduces previous results for vacuum spacetimes, possibly with a cosmological constant, pure radiation and electromagnetic field, but can be applied to an arbitrary matter content. As non-trivial explicit examples we investigate specific algebraic properties of the Robinson-Trautman spacetimes with a free scalar field, ...

  9. Robinson-Trautman solution with nonlinear electrodynamics

    Tahamtan, T.; Svitek, O. [Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Institute of Theoretical Physics, Prague 8 (Czech Republic)

    2016-06-15

    Explicit Robinson-Trautman solutions with an electromagnetic field satisfying nonlinear field equations are derived and analyzed. The solutions are generated from the spherically symmetric ones. In all studied cases the electromagnetic field singularity is removed while the gravitational one persists. The models resolving the curvature singularity in spherically symmetric spacetimes could not be generalized to the Robinson-Trautman geometry using the generating method developed in this paper, which indicates that the removal of a singularity in the associated spherically symmetric case might be just a consequence of high symmetry. We show that the obtained solutions are generally of algebraic type II and reduce to type D in spherical symmetry. Asymptotically they tend to the spherically symmetric case as well. (orig.)

  11. Lieb-Robinson and the butterfly effect

    CERN Document Server

    Roberts, Daniel A

    2016-01-01

    As experiments are increasingly able to probe the quantum dynamics of systems with many degrees of freedom, it is interesting to probe fundamental bounds on the dynamics of quantum information. We elaborate on the relationship between one such bound---the Lieb-Robinson bound---and the butterfly effect in strongly-coupled quantum systems. The butterfly effect implies the ballistic growth of local operators in time, which can be quantified with the "butterfly" velocity $v_B$. Similarly, the Lieb-Robinson velocity places a state independent ballistic upper bound on the size of time evolved operators in non-relativistic lattice models. Here, we argue that $v_B$ is a state-dependent effective Lieb-Robinson velocity. We study the butterfly velocity in a wide variety of quantum field theories using holography and compare with free particle computations to understand the role of strong coupling. We find that, depending on the way length and time scale, $v_B$ acquires a temperature dependence and decreases towards the...

  12. Robinson manifolds and Cauchy-Riemann spaces

    CERN Document Server

    Trautman, A

    2002-01-01

    A Robinson manifold is defined as a Lorentz manifold (M, g) of dimension 2n >= 4 with a bundle N subset of C centre dot TM such that the fibres of N are maximal totally null and there holds the integrability condition [Sec N, Sec N] subset of Sec N. The real part of N intersection N-bar is a bundle of null directions tangent to a congruence of null geodesics. This generalizes the notion of a shear-free congruence of null geodesics (SNG) in dimension 4. Under a natural regularity assumption, the set M of all these geodesics has the structure of a Cauchy-Riemann manifold of dimension 2n - 1. Conversely, every such CR manifold lifts to many Robinson manifolds. Three definitions of a CR manifold are described here in considerable detail; they are equivalent under the assumption of real analyticity, but not in the smooth category. The distinctions between these definitions have a bearing on the validity of the Robinson theorem on the existence of null Maxwell fields associated with SNGs. This paper is largely a re...

    Full Text Available Dieser Beitrag widmet sich der Frage, inwiefern Cyber-Mobbing unter Bezugnahme auf Judith Butlers sprach- bzw. diskurstheoretisches Konzept als verletzender Sprechakt verstanden werden kann. Zu diesem Zweck werden in einem ersten Schritt die Besonderheiten von Cyber-Mobbing aufgezeigt und im Anschluss daran ein für diesen Text geeigneter Cyber-Mobbing-Begriff formuliert. Daraufhin erfolgt eine interpretative Auseinandersetzung mit der Butlerschen Konzeption verletzender Sprechakte, bevor anschließend anhand wesentlicher Schnittstellen herausgearbeitet wird, inwiefern Cyber-Mobbing als ein solcher verletzender sprachlicher Akt begriffen werden kann. Resümierend werden die zentralen Ergebnisse der Ausarbeitung zusammengefasst und es wird danach gefragt, welche Konsequenzen bzw. Folgen sich hieraus für ein mögliches verändertes Verständnis von Cyber-Mobbing ergeben.This Paper argues whether cyber bullying can be understood as violating speach act with reference to Judith Butler by starting with a definition of cyber bullying (respectively the term cyber 'mobbing' which is used synonymously in German speaking countries and an outline of Butler's theory. After that, the question of a new or different understanding of cyber bullying and its consequences is discussed.

  14. Ideology and intertextuality: Intertextual allusions in Judith 16

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    S. Philip Nolte

    2011-03-01

    Full Text Available This article utilised the theory of intertextuality to investigate the way in which religious texts, specifically Judith 16, generate meaning in the act of the production of texts. The groundbreaking work on intertextuality done by Julia Kristeva served as the theoretical point of departure. Kristeva utilised Mikhail Bakhtin’s literary theory to develop her own views on intertextuality. According to the theory of intertextuality, all texts are intersections of different texts and are therefore polyvalent. The article argued that the ideology (or ideologies of author(s of texts underpin the ways in which other texts are used and alluded to. The purpose of the investigation was to illustrate how intertextual allusions in Judith 16 are used to describe ‘God/the Lord’ as a God of war and, thereby, to maintain an already existing ideology of war:We know now that a text is not a line of words releasing a single ‘theological’ meaning (the ‘message’ of the Author-God but a multi-dimensional space in which a variety of writings, none of them original, blend and clash. The text is a tissue of quotations drawn from the innumerable centres of culture. (Barthes, cited in Beal 1992:27

    2017-02-01

    Solutions to Einstein's equations in the form of a Robinson-Trautman metric are presented. In particular, we derive a pure radiation solution which is non-stationary and involves a mass m, The resulting spacetime is of Petrov Type II A special selection of parametric values throws up the feature of the particle `rocket', a Type D metric. A suitable transformation of the complex coordinates allows the metrics to be expressed in real form. A modification, by setting m to zero, of the Type II metric thereby converting it to Type III, is then shown to admit a null Einstein-Maxwell electromagnetic field.

    Treffers, Richard R.; Loisos, G.; Ubbelohde, M.; Douglas, S.; Martinez, M.

    2013-01-01

    We describe the repurposing of the historic coelostat atop Caltech’s Robinson Hall for building lighting, public education and scientific research. The coelostat was originally part of George Ellery Hale’s vision of the Astrophysical Laboratory on the Caltech campus in 1932. The coelostat, designed by Russell Porter, has a 36 inch diameter primary mirror a 30 inch diameter secondary mirror and provides a 24 inch un-vignetted beam of sunlight into the building. Although constructed in the 1930s, due to wartime pressures and other projects, it was used only briefly in the 1970s and never fully realized. Recently Robinson Hall has been fully renovated to house the Ronald and Maxine Linde Center for Global Environmental Science. The coelostat operation was modernized replacing the old motors and automating all the motions. Each morning, if the weather cooperates, the dome slit opens, the mirrors configured and sunlight pours into the building. The beam of sunlight is divided into three parts. One part goes into a refracting telescope which projects a ten inch diameter of the sun onto a ground glass screen visible to the public. A second fraction is distributed to fiber optic fixtures that illuminate some of the basement rooms. The final fraction goes into two laboratories where it is used in experiments monitoring trace constituents of our atmosphere and for solar catalysis experiments. The instrument as originally conceived required at least two human operators. Now it is fully automatic and doing real science

  2. The Awkward Academic: Why Judith Reads James in Joyce Carol Oates's "My Warszawa: 1980"

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kerry Sutherland

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available Joyce Carol Oates’s short story “My Warszawa: 1980” follows the journey of well-respected academician Judith Horne as she travels to and within Poland to participate in an international conference on American culture. She has a vague connection to Poland, with remote family members who were killed in Auschwitz and a Jewish ancestry that can be seen in her features, but she considers these facts unimportant to who she is at the moment. She travels with her lover, who is as remote emotionally as her dead forbears are physically. The emotional connections she makes with the people and land begin to affect her well-ordered and controlled life, including her relationship with him. As they sit side by side on the plane to Poland, he attends to his work as journalist, typewriter on his lap, and Judith gazes at the landscape, an opened book on hers. It is Henry James’s The Awkward Age, unread, chosen by Judith with a logic she cannot recall. Why does Oates give James to Judith, and why does she choose this novel in particular to influence her? Nanda’s story is a warning to Judith, a red flag that unfolds as the younger girl’s ruin proceeds before her eyes, and Judith realizes that the man she loves will never marry her, just as Vanderbank refuses to propose to Nanda. Neither man is comfortable with a woman who is corrupted by knowledge that might undermine his need for authority in the relationship. Nanda understands her position too late, but Judith has time to reflect on her situation, and Oates leaves the story unfinished, with Judith on a plane home with Carl but not definitively resigned to the relationship.

  3. Judith Butler's theories: reflections for nursing research and practice.

    Nagington, Maurice G

    2016-10-01

    Judith Butler is one of the most influential late 20th and early 21st century philosophers in regard to left wing politics, as well as an active campaigner for social justice within the United States and worldwide. Her academic work has been foundational to the academic discipline of queer theory and has been extensively critiqued and applied across a hugely wide range of disciplines. In addition, Butler's work itself is extensive covering topics such as gender, sexuality, race, literary theory, and warfare. This article can only serve as a taster for the potential application of her work in relation to nursing, which is in its infancy. This introduction covers three of the potentially most productive themes in Butler's work, namely power, performativity, and ethics. Each of these themes are critically explored in turn, sometimes in relation to their actual application in nursing literature, but also in relation to their potential for producing novel critiques of nursing practice. Suggestions are made about how Butler's work can develop nursing research and practice. The article concludes with a short summary of Butler's key works as well as suggested reading for people interested in examining how her theories have been applied across different academic settings.

  7. The function of the Ammonite Achior in the book of Judith

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pieter M. Venter

    2011-03-01

    Full Text Available An intertextual analysis of the character of Achior in the book of Judith shows that the author of the book proposes a changed Judaean identity. The way in which he depicts the character of Judith and her alter ego, Achior, illustrates the author’s ideology that people like proselytes and marginalised widows are not only to be included in the society, but can even be the leaders of the community. A nationalistic and exclusivist approach is entwined in the narrative with an inclusivist viewpoint propagating a new identity for the people of that time.

  8. On the algebraic types of the Bel-Robinson tensor

    CERN Document Server

    Ferrando, Joan J

    2008-01-01

    The Bel-Robinson tensor is analyzed as a linear map on the space of the traceless symmetric tensors. This study leads to an algebraic classification that refines the usual Petrov-Bel classification of the Weyl tensor. The new classes correspond to degenerate type I space-times which have already been introduced in literature from another point of view. The Petrov-Bel types and the additional ones are intrinsically characterized in terms of the sole Bel-Robinson tensor, and an algorithm is proposed that enables the different classes to be distinguished. Results are presented that solve the problem of obtaining the Weyl tensor from the Bel-Robinson tensor in regular cases.

  9. An improved model of Robinson equivalent circuit analytical model

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2010-01-01

    The Robinson equivalent circuit analytical model can be used only in calculating shielding effectiveness of enclosure with the same multi-holes in one wall, but cannot be used in different multi-holes in two walls. According to the practical requirement, this article uses Konefal’s and Farhana’s characteristic impedance of apertures to improve the equivalent circuit analytical model in different multi-holes in two walls. The improved equivalent circuit analytical model is more useful than Robinson equivalent circuit analytical model. In the article, all kinds of enclosures are simulated by TLM (Transmission-Line Matrix method) to prove that this improved model is feasible in multimode.

    Daniel Defoe’s representative work-Robinson Crusoe is deeply influenced by Christianity and its scriptures. It con-tains abundant traces of the influence from the biblical sin and allusions. There are not only very similar biblical archetypal struc-ture and characters, but also direct and indirect quotations from the Biblical discourse.

  1. Reading Robinson Crusoe from the lens of Islamic Utopianism

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Morteza Yousofi

    2014-03-01

    Full Text Available The need for perfection is an innate feeling in all human beings and a broader sense of it would be people’s craving to make a utopian society. Utopianism is rooted in religions like Islam, Christianity, Judaism and Hinduism. It is also discussed in many Western works trying to depict an ideal society like Plato’s The Republic and More’s Utopia. The utopian features raised by them are illustrated in many literary works and utopian fictions as is the case with Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe. This paper attempts to analyze some common Western utopian features presented in Robinson Crusoe and compare them with Islamic traditions which describe the golden era of the Messiah of Islam. By referring to two utopian features of economic prosperity and spirituality, the essay concludes that the discipline of comparative literature provides an opportunity to compare literary works with discussions on Islamic studies and although Robinson Crusoe is set in a Christian context, it has some features in common with the Islamic Utopia.

  2. Modelling of thermal shock experiments of carbon based materials in JUDITH

    2005-03-01

    The interaction of hot plasma with material in fusion devices can result in material erosion and irreversible damage. Carbon based materials are proposed for ITER divertor armour. To simulate carbon erosion under high heat fluxes, electron beam heating in the JUDITH facility has been used. In this paper, carbon erosion under energetic electron impact is modeled by the 3D thermomechanics code 'PEGASUS-3D'. The code is based on a crack generation induced by thermal stress. The particle emission observed in thermal shock experiments is a result of breaking bonds between grains caused by thermal stress. The comparison of calculations with experimental data from JUDITH shows good agreement for various incident power densities and pulse durations. A realistic mean failure stress has been found. Pre-heating of test specimens results in earlier onset of brittle destruction and enhanced particle loss in agreement with experiments.

    Full Text Available A partir da sugestão de Judith Butler de que o gênero é uma norma, ou seja, uma construção social histórica e contingente, o presente trabalho procura fazer uma análise crítica dos conceitos de identificação e sexuação na psicanálise, oriundos de uma concepção estruturalista do sujeito e da diferença sexual. Parte-se do princípio de que, embora gênero e subjetivação sejam reiterações da norma sexual, na própria instabilidade da repetição do mesmo é possível vislumbrar a positividade da subjetivação como resistência, singularidade e produção de diferença.From Judith Butler's suggestion that gender is a norm, that is, a historical and contingent social construction, this work intends a critical analysis of the concepts of identification and sexuation in psychoanalysis, derived from a structuralist conception of the subject and the sexual difference. We start from the principle that even if gender and subjectivation are reiterations of the sexual norm, in the instability itself of the repetition of the same it is possible to glimpse the positivity of the subjectivation as resistance, singularity and production of difference.

    1981-03-01

    "Joan Robinson: One Woman's Story' is a cinéma vérité style record of a woman's losing struggle against ovarian cancer. The film has been shown now twice on the American Public Television Network. It has received good notices primarily from the lay press. Yet the film depicts much that is out-of-date and much that is debatable. In general, we feel that it presents a depressing picture of the cancer patient. This was not Joan Robinson's intention and her bravery only serves to highlight this picture of suffering with cancer. We point to specific flaws in the film. We then go on to account for why many reviewers seem to have been blind to these flaws. It is suggested that criteria for good works of art, for good public health information, and for admirable personal traits were confused.

    If travel has been one of the leitmotifs of Western imagination, Robinson Crusoe has certainly been one of its foremost incarnations. This British Ulysses foretold the global village, but also its problems. He predicted the end of distance, but also the triumph of isolation and anaesthetized loneliness. This paper provides an overview of the connections between Defoe's narrative and the new science and explores two versions of the story by two contemporary writers, Julio Cortazar and John Maxwell Coetzee.

    2005-01-01

    STS-114 Mission Specialists, Andy Thomas and Steve Robinson, are seen in this pre-flight interview. Andy Thomas begins by talking about his interest in spaceflight as a young boy growing up in Australia. He expresses that the chances of an Australian boy studying to eventually become an astronaut was very remote. His Mechanical Engineering Degree in Australia and a Doctorate enabled him to acquire unique skills to come to the United States to work for Lockheed Martin. On the topic of return to flight, he reflects on experiences that he had working with the Michael Anderson and Kalpana Chawla of the ill-fated Space Shuttle Columbia. He also talks about the safety of the Space Shuttle Discovery and repairs to its Thermal Protection system. He explains in detail the Logistics Flight (LF) 1, spacewalks, Multipurpose Logistics Module (MPLM) and the External Stowage Platform (ESP)-2. Steve Robinson expresses that he had many interests as a child and becoming an astronaut was one of them. He was fascinated with things that fly and wanted to find out how they flew. He also designed hang gliders as a teenager. He expresses how his family feels about the risky business of spaceflight. He talks about how the space shuttle discovery crew will remember the Columbia crew by including seven stars on their patch so that they can bring them into orbit and then back home. Robinson also talks about his primary job, and the spacewalks that he and Soichi Noguchi will be performing.

    2007-12-01

    Full Text Available O texto expõe o ponto de vista de duas grandes filósofas feministas da atualidade, Adriana Cavarero e Judith Butler, sobre subjetividade e relacionalidade, mostrando como ambas distanciaram-se dos temas específicos do feminismo de maneira a aprofundar e ampliar suas reflexões sobre política e ética. Questionando a tradição, Cavarero não compactua nem com o binarismo metafísico nem com a impessoalidade pós-moderna, combinando uma perspectiva feminista com a arendtiana da subjetividade embasada na relacionalidade. No entanto, diferentemente do pensamento de Cavarero, sob a perspectiva desconstrucionista de Butler a linguagem molda corpo e identidade. A subjetividade está presa às normas e valores sociais. Butler e Cavarero repensam a subjetividade, alinhando-se quanto à relacionalidade, ou seja, deslocando a política para longe do ser imune e realocando-a no ser vulnerável em relação com o outro e com os efeitos das regras e valores sociais impostos.The work presents the standpoint of two important contemporary feminist philosophers, Adriana Cavarero and Judith Butler, on subjectivity and relationality, showing how both moved away from the specific feminism motif in order to deepen and broaden their reflection on politics and ethics. Calling tradition into question, Cavarero agrees neither with the metaphysical binary, nor with the post-modern impersonality, combining a feminist and the arendtian perspectives of the subjectivity based on relationality. Contrary to Cavarero's thought, though, under Butler's deconstructionist standpoint language shapes body and identity. Subjectivity is "trapped" into social norms and values. Both Butler and Cavarero rethink subjectivity based on relationality, that is, displacing politics from the immune individual and reallocating it on the vulnerable individual in relation with the other and with the social rules and values imposed on them.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Full Text Available The present study aims to investigate the contribution that actor Edward G. Robinson brought to the American film industry, beginning with his iconic role as gangster Little Caesar in Mervyn Le Roy’s 1931 production, and continuing with widely-acclaimed parts in classic film noirs such as Double Indemnity, The Woman in the Window and Scarlet Street. Edward G. Robinson was actually a Romanian Jew, born Emmanuel Goldenberg in Bucharest, in 1893, a relatively little known fact nowadays. By examining his biography, filmography and his best-known, most successful films (mentioned above, I show that Edward G. Robinson was one of classical Hollywood’s most influential actors; for instance, traits of his portrayal of Little Caesar (one of the very first American gangster films can be found in almost all subsequent cinematic gangster figures, from Scarface to Vito Corleone. In the same vein, the doomed noir characters he played in Fritz Lang’s The Woman in the Window and Scarlet Street are still considered by film critics today to be some of the finest, most nuanced examples of noir heroes. Therefore, the main body of my article will be dedicated to a more detailed analysis of these films, while the introductory section will trace his biography and discuss some of his better-known films, such as Confessions of a Nazi Spy and Key Largo. The present study highlights Edward G. Robinson’s merits and impact on the cinema industry, proving that this diminutive Romanian Jew of humble origins was indeed something of a giant during Hollywood’s classical era.

    Clément, G; Clement, Gerard; Gal'tsov, Dmitri

    2001-01-01

    We investigate conformal mechanics associated with the rotating Bertotti-Robinson (RBR) geometry found recently as the near-horizon limit of the extremal rotating Einstein-Maxwell-dilaton-axion black holes. The solution breaks the $SL(2,R)\\times SO(3)$ symmetry of Bertotti-Robinson (BR) spacetime to $SL(2,R)\\times U(1)$ and breaks the supersymmetry of $N=4, d=4$ supergravity as well. However, it shares with BR such properties as confinement of timelike geodesics and discreteness of the energy of test fields on the geodesically complete manifold. Conformal mechanics governing the radial geodesic motion coincides with that for a charged particle in the BR background (a relativistic version of the De Alfaro-Fubini-Furlan model), with the azimuthal momentum playing the role of a charge. Similarly to the BR case, the transition from Poincar\\'e to global coordinates leads to a redefinition of the Hamiltonian making the energy spectrum discrete. Although the metric does not split into a product space even asymptotic...

  15. Consanguinity on Robinson Crusoe Island, an isolated Chilean population.

    Villanueva, Pia; Fernández, Maria A; De Barbieri, Zulema; Palomino, Hernán

    2014-07-01

    The population of Robinson Crusoe Island is estimated at 633 inhabitants. The current population has a common origin from the first eight families who colonized the island at the end of the 19th century. The objective of this study was to determine the rates of consanguinity, the average coefficients of inbreeding, the types of consanguineous marriages and the inbreeding evolution between 1900 and 2000 on the island. All marriages registered on the island, from the last colonization until 2000 (417 in total), were included in the analysis. In addition, extended genealogies were obtained. The consanguinity rate was 14.9% and the average coefficient of inbreeding (α) 54.05 × 10(-4). The most frequent type of consanguineous marriages was between second cousins, followed by first cousins. The average value of the first/second cousin ratio was 1.11. The population of Robinson Crusoe Island has a high rate of inbreeding. The unique characteristic of the island - its small current population, originating from just a few families, with small rate of gene flow - could explain the observed high and increasing consanguinity.

By means of a general formalism for constructing coordinates in conformally flat spacetimes, coordinate transformations between the different coordinate systems are deduced. We discuss the motion of the reference frames in which the different coordinate systems are comoving. Furthermore we characterize the motion of the different reference frames by their normalized timelike Killing vector fields, i.e. by the four velocity fields of the reference particles. We also deduce the formulae in the different coordinate systems for the embedding of the LBR spacetime in a flat 6-dimensional manifold. In particular we discuss a scenario with a spherical domain wall having LBR spacetime outside the wall and flat spacetime inside. We also discuss the internal flat spacetime using the same coordinate systems as in the external LBR spacetime with continuous metric at the wall. Among the different cases one represents a Milne-LB...

    Full Text Available The aim of this essay is to attempt to engage in polemics with the theory of hate speech endorsed by Judith Butler in her book Excitable Speech. The text will try to show that the Butlerian strategy of textualization of hate speech. If it is understood as a main tool of fighting with injurious speech, fails and, in fact, hinders this fight. The argument will touch both upon the theory and its practical application. On the theoretical level, the deconstruction of J.L. Austin’s speech acts by Butler, along with a similar, earlier treatment of Austin by Derrida, will be criticized. In terms of practice, it will be attempted to view some of the recent, controversial events concerning hate speech through the lens of Butler’s theory, and to show the inadequacies of treating her theory as an effective tool of fighting injurious utterances

    2009-01-01

    In 1991, David Gale and Raphael Robinson, building on explorations carried out by Michael Somos in the 1980s, introduced a three-parameter family of rational recurrence relations, each of which (with suitable initial conditions) appeared to give rise to a sequence of integers, even though a priori the recurrence might produce non-integral rational numbers. Throughout the '90s, proofs of integrality were known only for individual special cases. In the early '00s, Sergey Fomin and Andrei Zelevinsky proved Gale and Robinson's integrality conjecture. They actually proved much more, and in particular, that certain bivariate rational functions that generalize Gale-Robinson numbers are actually polynomials with integer coefficients. However, their proof did not offer any enumerative interpretation of the Gale-Robinson numbers/polynomials. Here we provide such an interpretation in the setting of perfect matchings of graphs, which makes integrality/polynomiality obvious. Moreover, this interpretation implies that the ...

The purpose of this paper is from Robinson Crusoe to judge the decision effect of people’s character on the fate and to reveal the deep nature of Robinson in Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe by taking his social background,family environment,experiences that he underwent and the 18th century British moral standards and conception of value into consideration. Through analyzing Robinson’ character,which had both positive elements as bookishness,kindness,curiosity and so on and negative traits as occasional cowardice, cruelty,defiance and so forth,indicating that character itself has neither good nor bad points but lies in how to handle it properly.

  16. Bertotti-Robinson type solutions to Dilaton-Axion Gravity

    CERN Document Server

    Clément, G; Clement, Gerard; Gal'tsov, Dmitri

    2001-01-01

    We present a new solution to dilaton-axion gravity which looks like a rotating Bertotti-Robinson (BR) Universe. It is supported by an homogeneous Maxwell field and a linear axion and can be obtained as a near-horizon limit of extremal rotating dilaton-axion black holes. It has the isometry $SL(2,R)\\times U(1)$ where U(1) is the remnant of the SO(3) symmetry of BR broken by rotation, while $SL(2,R)$ corresponds to the $AdS_2$ sector which no longer factors out of the full spacetime. Alternatively our solution can be obtained from the D=5 vacuum counterpart to the dyonic BR with equal electric and magnetic field strengths. The derivation amounts to smearing it in D=6 and then reducing to D=4 with dualization of one Kaluza-Klein two-form in D=5 to produce an axion. Using a similar dualization procedure, the rotating BR solution is uplifted to D=11 supergravity. We show that it breaks all supersymmetries of N=4 supergravity in D=4, and that its higher dimensional embeddings are not supersymmetric either. But, hop...

  17. No Bel-Robinson Tensor for Quadratic Curvature Theories

    CERN Document Server

    Deser, S

    2011-01-01

    We attempt to generalize the familiar covariantly conserved Bel-Robinson tensor B ~ RR of GR and its recent topologically massive counterpart B ~ RDR, to quadratic curvature actions. Two very different models of current interest are examined: fourth order D=3 "new massive", and second order D>4 Gauss-Bonnet-Lovelock (GBL), gravity. On dimensional grounds, the candidates here become B ~ DRDR+RRR. For the D=3 model, there indeed exist conserved B ~ dR dR in the linearized limit. However, unlike for GR and TMG, and despite a plethora of available cubic terms, B cannot be extended to the full theory. The D>4 models are not even linearizable about flat space, since their field equations are quadratic in curvature; they also have no viable B, a fact that persists even if one includes cosmological or Einstein terms to allow linearization about the resulting dS vacua. These results are an unexpected, if hardly unique, example of non-linearization instability.

    Full Text Available The editors and editorial board of Human Organization are pleased to introduce readers to the following oral history interview with Michael M. Cernea, a development social scientist who has militated throughout his academic career and applied work for "putting people first", in the forefront of development projects and policies. Working for a long time for the promotion of anthropological and sociological knowledge, either in the activities of the World Bank or in the policies and programs of governments of both developed and developing countries, Dr. Cernea cleared pathways for applied social science that are sure to benefit people in development settings for many years to come. Undoubtedly many readers already know Dr. Cernea's work well, especially those of us who teach the anthropology of development or work in applied settings and organizations, but this interview embeds his broad body of work into a personal, human, and at times tragic context that opens with brushes with death, Nazi brutality, and exile. It also provides valuable insights for carrying out the work of development anthropologists within large-scale organizations and governments.This interview with Dr. Cernea was conducted by Dr. Judith Freidenberg, of the University of Maryland, on June 30, 2003, for the Society for Applied Anthropology Oral History Project, headquartered at the University of Kentucky Libraries. This Project aims to create, through the vehicle of oral histories, a record of the life, activities and experiences of number of selected scholars-anthropologists who devoted a great part of their scientific work to research, to applied work in different settings, to inducing development, including to hands-on work on crafting public social policies and actual development programs. The present transcript of the interview was reviewed by both participants for editorial purposes. Michael M. Cernea expanded some of his oral responses, for historical accuracy or to add

    Full Text Available In this paper we propose to look into different meanings of livability and life in Judith butler’s thought. Although crucial for her early work (she points to it in her 1999 Introduction to Gender Trouble, the concept of livability as such emerges more often and in a more pronounced manner in her later books (from Undoing Gender and Precarious life to Towards a Performative Theory of Assembly. Our main question is: what is the thread that runs through different concepts of life in butler’s work? What are the links between abject, unlivable, precarious, ungrievable, jettisoned and dispossessed life? this raises further questions: the question of gradation of livability (which life matters and ‘how much’, and how to think this quantifiability of something so unquantifiable; and the question of universality (all lives matter. these questions obviously need to take into account the terms under which a life is qualified and counted as livable. such conditions encompass the norms that organize the possibility of recognition and the orders of recognizability and differential allocation of humanness. they encompass the ways in which we are constituted politically, but also in which this ‘we’ is social and bodily. the question of livable life is thus very much entangled with the issue of (individual agency, but also with what we as agents require “in order to maintain and reproduce the conditions of (our own livability” (Undoing Gender 2004: 39.

  4. On Judith Butler: A Phenomenology of Lived, narrated and Represented Embodiment

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Olga Belmonte García

    2017-07-01

    Full Text Available In this paper we take Judith Butler’s thinking as a basis from which to consider the ideas of three authors. In our view, these authors complement Butler’s project of helping excluded people to fight for a dignified life, a “liveable life”; and specifically to the idea of using performative resignifications of discourses and practices. On one hand, we present the writings of Sarah Ahmed and Lanei Rodemeyer; they consider the spatiality and temporality of the lived body (Ahmed and the relationship between the lived body and discourse (Rodemeyer. In both cases, “pure phenomenology” (and not hermeneutics is applied to the question of sexual diversity. On the other hand, we delve into the works of Louise Bourgeois, for whom artistic creation is a way of exorcising pain and becoming free of socially constructed prisons. Starting from the paths opened by these authors, we believe that a phenomenology is possible in which there is place for what does not fit into the norm. this phenomenology would make it possible, on one side, to rend visibility to those who do not fit into the established norms and categories and, on another side, to contribute to a reformulation of discourse, such a transformation that allows the excluded to inhabit them. “Pure” phenomenology, that aims at going to “the things themselves” do not naturalise oppressions, but it is rather an ally to recognise, denounce and provide a reparation for them.

    In my essay I explore the theories on performativity by Judith Butler and her book Gender Trouble and apply her theories from the early nineties on today’s Web 2.0 and YouTube. By giving homemade dance videos as an example to show how the division between strong gender identities have softened and are not as important as they were twenty years ago. I also critique some of Judith Butler’s ideas on how to trouble gender and claim that her ideas are perhaps slightly small thinking and narrow-min...

    Full Text Available This paper presents some general guidelines on the distinction sex/gender and its impact on the delimitation of the body category in feminist theory. Then, it offers some arguments that question the sexual dimorphism in natural terms from Judith Butler's psychoanalytic conceptualizations. According to this, essentialist and constructivist approaches are discussed in relation to the body, illustrated from Luce Irigaray and Judith Butler's proposals. Finally, it comes to the conclusion of the need to debate the sex category as a special occasion to reformulate the multiple conceptualizations involving the dimension of the body.

    Full Text Available Judith Butler beschäftigt sich in dieser Aufsatzsammlung mit den politischen und rechtlichen Anliegen von Homo- und Transsexuellen. Im Mittelpunkt stehen die Menschenrechte und die gesetzlichen Bestimmungen, durch die homosexuelle Paare bei der Familiengründung benachteiligt werden. Der Bedarf nach einer theoretisch gehaltvollen Kritik und nach praktischen Verbesserungen ist groß. Exemplarisch analysiert Butler den öffentlich verhandelten Fall einer operativen Geschlechtsveränderung, in dem weder die Kritiker/-innen noch die Befürworter/-innen ausreichend darauf eingingen, was sich die betroffene Person wünschte. Ein Schwachpunkt des Bandes liegt im vieldeutigen Gebrauch des Begriffs Gender.Judith Butler focuses in this collection of essays on the political and legal concerns of homo- and transsexuals. She concentrates on human rights and statutory provisions through which homosexual pairs are discriminated against in family planning. There exists a great need for a theoretically rich critique and for practical improvements. Butler exemplarily analyses the publically debated case of an operative sex change, in which neither the critics nor the supporters sufficiently notes the concerned person’s own wishes. The weakness of the volume lies in the ambiguous use of the term gender.

    In the Phase Ⅱ Project at the Hefei Light Source,a fourth-harmonic "Landau" cavity will be operated in order to suppress the coupled-bunch instabilities and increase the beam lifetime of the Hefei storage ring.Instabilities limit the utility of the higher-harmonic cavity when the storage ring is operated with a small momentum compaction.Analytical modeling and simulations show that the instabilities result from Robinson mode coupling.In the analytic modeling,we operate an algorithm to consider the Robinson instabilities.To study the evolution of unstable behavior,simulations have been performed in which macroparticles are distributed among the buckets.Both the analytic modeling and simulations agree for passive operation of the harmonic cavity.

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available Western marine literature classics were translated into Pre-modern China, and Robinson Crusoe is one of the most representative. Various Chinese versions were rendered with the political and educational push of the time. The translation and introduction of the noted classic played a key role in the spreading and formation of the Chinese marine spirit, thus profoundly inspiring Chinese readers. The adventure of Robinson on the wild island provided a powerful spiritual impetus for those Chinese with lofty ideals. It is without doubt that the translated novel conforms to the spirit and demand of the time, and voices the inner mind of the Chinese, which is the very reason why it has been loved and accepted by the massive Chinese readers and influenced them so much ever since.

    2009-01-01

    The assessment of phylogenetic network reconstruction methods requires the ability to compare phylogenetic networks. This is the first in a series of papers devoted to the analysis and comparison of metrics for tree-child time consistent phylogenetic networks on the same set of taxa. In this paper, we study three metrics that have already been introduced in the literature: the Robinson-Foulds distance, the tripartitions distance and the mu-distance. They generalize to networks the classical Robinson-Foulds or partition distance for phylogenetic trees. We analyze the behavior of these metrics by studying their least and largest values and when they achieve them. As a by-product of this study, we obtain tight bounds on the size of a tree-child time consistent phylogenetic network.

  11. Effect of dipole-quadrupole Robinson mode coupling upon the beam response to radio-frequency phase noise

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    R. A. Bosch

    2006-09-01

    Full Text Available In an electron storage ring, coupling between dipole and quadrupole Robinson oscillations modifies the spectrum of longitudinal beam oscillations driven by radio-frequency (rf generator phase noise. In addition to the main peak at the resonant frequency of the coupled dipole Robinson mode, another peak occurs at the resonant frequency of the coupled quadrupole mode. To describe these peaks analytically for a quadratic synchrotron potential, we include the dipole and quadrupole modes when calculating the beam response to generator noise. We thereby obtain the transfer function from generator-noise phase modulation to beam phase modulation with and without phase feedback. For Robinson-stable bunches confined in a synchrotron potential with a single minimum, the calculated transfer function agrees with measurements at the Aladdin 800-MeV electron storage ring. The transfer function is useful in evaluating phase feedback that suppresses Robinson oscillations in order to obtain quiet operation of an infrared beam line.

    In this paper, we show that in order for third-degree price discrimination to increase total output, the demands of the strong markets should be, as conjectured by Robinson (1933), more concave than the demands of the weak markets. By making the distinction between adjusted concavity of the inverse demand and adjusted concavity of the direct demand, we are able to state necessary conditions and sufficient conditions for third-degree price discrimination to increase total output.

  18. A New Brachylophosaurin Hadrosaur (Dinosauria: Ornithischia with an Intermediate Nasal Crest from the Campanian Judith River Formation of Northcentral Montana.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Elizabeth A Freedman Fowler

    Full Text Available Brachylophosaurini is a clade of hadrosaurine dinosaurs currently known from the Campanian (Late Cretaceous of North America. Its members include: Acristavus gagslarsoni, which lacks a nasal crest; Brachylophosaurus canadensis, which possesses a flat paddle-shaped nasal crest projecting posteriorly over the dorsal skull roof; and Maiasaura peeblesorum, which possesses a dorsally-projecting nasofrontal crest. Acristavus, from the lower Two Medicine Formation of Montana (~81-80 Ma, is hypothesized to be the ancestral member of the clade. Brachylophosaurus specimens are from the middle Oldman Formation of Alberta and equivalent beds in the Judith River Formation of Montana; the upper Oldman Formation is dated 77.8 Ma.A new brachylophosaurin hadrosaur, Probrachylophosaurus bergei (gen. et sp. nov. is described and phylogenetically analyzed based on the skull and postcranium of a large individual from the Judith River Formation of northcentral Montana (79.8-79.5 Ma; the horizon is equivalent to the lower Oldman Formation of Alberta. Cranial morphology of Probrachylophosaurus, most notably the nasal crest, is intermediate between Acristavus and Brachylophosaurus. In Brachylophosaurus, the nasal crest lengthens and flattens ontogenetically, covering the supratemporal fenestrae in large adults. The smaller nasal crest of Probrachylophosaurus is strongly triangular in cross section and only minimally overhangs the supratemporal fenestrae, similar to an ontogenetically earlier stage of Brachylophosaurus. Sutural fusion and tibial osteohistology reveal that the holotype of Probrachylophosaurus was relatively more mature than a similarly large Brachylophosaurus specimen; thus, Probrachylophosaurus is not simply an immature Brachylophosaurus.The small triangular posteriorly oriented nasal crest of Probrachylophosaurus is proposed to represent a transitional nasal morphology between that of a non-crested ancestor such as Acristavus and the large flat

    A description of the finite element implementation of Robinson's unified viscoplastic model into the General Purpose Finite Element Program (MARC) is presented. To demonstrate its application, the implementation is applied to some uniaxial and multiaxial problems. A comparison of the results for the multiaxial problem of a thick internally pressurized cylinder, obtained using the finite element implementation and an analytical solution, is also presented. The excellent agreement obtained confirms the correct finite element implementation of Robinson's model.

  20. Lieb-Robinson Bound and the Butterfly Effect in Quantum Field Theories

    Roberts, Daniel A.; Swingle, Brian

    2016-08-01

    As experiments are increasingly able to probe the quantum dynamics of systems with many degrees of freedom, it is interesting to probe fundamental bounds on the dynamics of quantum information. We elaborate on the relationship between one such bound—the Lieb-Robinson bound—and the butterfly effect in strongly coupled quantum systems. The butterfly effect implies the ballistic growth of local operators in time, which can be quantified with the "butterfly" velocity vB . Similarly, the Lieb-Robinson velocity places a state-independent ballistic upper bound on the size of time evolved operators in nonrelativistic lattice models. Here, we argue that vB is a state-dependent effective Lieb-Robinson velocity. We study the butterfly velocity in a wide variety of quantum field theories using holography and compare with free-particle computations to understand the role of strong coupling. We find that vB remains constant or decreases with decreasing temperature. We also comment on experimental prospects and on the relationship between the butterfly velocity and signaling.

    Specific language impairment (SLI) occurs in 2% to 8% of preschool children. Major and candidate genes are probably involved. Genetic drift is a cause for the presence of high frequencies of deleterious alíeles of a specific disease and the founder effect is one of its forms. Robinson Crusoe Island has 633 inhabitants and its actual population began with 8 families that repopulated the island at the end of XIXth century. To assess the frequency of specific language impairment among children living in Robinson Crusoe Island. All 66 children aged between 3 and 9 years living in the island, were studied. Parents were interviewed and in children, non verbal intelligence, audiometric parameters, comprehension and expression of oral language were assessed. Extended genealogies were also performed. Forty children had at least one parent that was descending of founder families. Among these, 35% had SLI. Eighth five percent of SLI affected children came from the same colonizer family. The prevalence of SLI in Robinson Crusoe Island is higher than that reported in mainland Chile and abroad. This high prevalence, associated to a high frequency of consanguinity, supports the influence of genetic mechanisms in SLI transmission, based on a founder effect.

  6. Misrepresentations of Sargasso Sea temperatures by Arthur B. Robinson et al.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Keigwin, Lloyd (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Woods Hole, MA); Boslough, Mark Bruce Elrick

    2010-10-01

    Keigwin (Science 274:1504-1508, 1996) reconstructed the sea surface temperature (SST) record in the northern Sargasso Sea to document natural climate variability in recent millennia. The annual average SST proxy used {delta}{sup 18}O in planktonic foraminifera in a radiocarbon-dated 1990 Bermuda Rise box core. Keigwin's Fig. 4B (K4B) shows a 50-year-averaged time series along with four decades of SST measurements from Station S near Bermuda, demonstrating that the Sargasso Sea is now at its warmest in more than 400 years, and well above the most recent box-core temperature. Taken together, Station S and paleo-temperatures suggest there was an acceleration of warming in the 20th century, though this was not an explicit conclusion of the paper. Keigwin concluded that anthropogenic warming may be superposed on a natural warming trend. In an unpublished paper circulated with the anti-Kyoto 'Oregon Petition,' Robinson et al. ('Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide,' 1998) reproduced K4B but (1) omitted Station S data, (2) incorrectly stated that the time series ended in 1975, (3) conflated Sargasso Sea data with global temperature, and (4) falsely claimed that Keigwin showed global temperatures 'are still a little below the average for the past 3,000 years.' Keigwin's Fig. 2 showed that {delta}{sup 18}O has increased over the past 6000 years, so SSTs calculated from those data would have a long term decrease. Thus, it is inappropriate to compare present-day SST to a long term mean unless the trend is removed. Slight variations of Robinson et al. (1998) have been repeatedly published with different author rotations. Various mislabeled, improperly-drawn, and distorted versions of K4B have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, in weblogs, and even as an editorial cartoon-all supporting baseless claims that current temperatures are lower than the long-term mean, and traceable to Robinson's misrepresentation

    Robinson-Trautman radiative space-times of Petrov type II with a non-vanishing cosmological constant Lambda and mass parameter m>0 are studied using analytical methods. They are shown to approach the corresponding spherically symmetric Schwarzschild-de Sitter or Schwarzschild-anti-de Sitter solution at large retarded times. Their global structure is analyzed, and it is demonstrated that the smoothness of the extension of the metrics across the horizon, as compared with the case Lambda=0, is increased for Lambda>0 and decreased for Lambda0 exhibit explicitly the cosmic no-hair conjecture under the presence of gravitational waves.

    We consider the isotropic XY quantum spin chain in a random external field in the z direction, with single site distributions given by i.i.d. random variables times the critical decaying envelope j^{-1/2}. Our motivation is the study of many-body localization. We investigate transport properties in terms of polynomial Lieb-Robinson (PLR) bounds. We prove a zero-velocity PLR bound for large disorder strength λ and for small λ we show a partial converse, which suggests the existence of a transition to non-trivial transport in the model.

When HBT (Hankinson-Brobst-Thomson) equation was joined with PR equation, the deviations are reduced to less than 1.5% for both R22+Rl14 and R22+R142b.

  12. Note on a specific subcases of Robinson-Trautman solution with scalar hair

    Explicit Robinson-Trautman solution with minimally coupled free scalar field was derived and analyzed recently. It was shown that this solution possesses curvature singularity which is initially naked but later the horizon envelopes it. However this study concentrated on the general branch of the solution where all the free constants are nonzero. Interesting special cases arise when some of the parameters are set to zero. In most of these cases the scalar field is still present. One of the cases is a static solution which represents a parametric limit of Janis-Newman-Winicour scalar field spacetime.

  14. A new ankylosaurine dinosaur from the Judith River Formation of Montana, USA, based on an exceptional skeleton with soft tissue preservation

    Arbour, Victoria M.; Evans, David C.

    2017-05-01

    The terrestrial Judith River Formation of northern Montana was deposited over an approximately 4 Myr interval during the Campanian (Late Cretaceous). Despite having been prospected and collected continuously by palaeontologists for over a century, few relatively complete dinosaur skeletons have been recovered from this unit to date. Here we describe a new genus and species of ankylosaurine dinosaur, Zuul crurivastator, from the Coal Ridge Member of the Judith River Formation, based on an exceptionally complete and well-preserved skeleton (ROM 75860). This is the first ankylosaurin skeleton known with a complete skull and tail club, and it is the most complete ankylosaurid ever found in North America. The presence of abundant soft tissue preservation across the skeleton, including in situ osteoderms, skin impressions and dark films that probably represent preserved keratin, make this exceptional skeleton an important reference for understanding the evolution of dermal and epidermal structures in this clade. Phylogenetic analysis recovers Zuul as an ankylosaurin ankylosaurid within a clade of Dyoplosaurus and Scolosaurus, with Euoplocephalus being more distantly related within Ankylosaurini. The occurrence of Z. crurivastator from the upper Judith River Formation fills a gap in the ankylosaurine stratigraphic and geographical record in North America, and further highlights that Campanian ankylosaurines were undergoing rapid evolution and stratigraphic succession of taxa as observed for Laramidian ceratopsids, hadrosaurids, pachycephalosaurids and tyrannosaurids.

    Full Text Available En el presente artículo se abordan los aportes de Judith Butler en torno al concepto de ciudadanía. Si bien Butler no ha desarrollado una teoría sistemática de la ciudadanía se sostiene que su concepción puede ser reconstruida a partir de su propuesta de ontología social y su interpretación de la contradicción performativa. Para probar esta afirmación, en primer lugar, se realiza dicha reconstrucción. En segundo lugar, se deriva de esta reconstrucción un modo original para pensar el ejercicio de la ciudadanía en los términos de la contradicción performativa. En tercer lugar, se evaluará la conveniencia de este punto de vista para comprender las demandas ciudadanas radicales en la actualidad. Como ejemplo se analizará la demanda de la legalización del aborto en Argentina. En la medida en que esta demanda incluye la realización de abortos medicamentosos, expresa el ejercicio de un derecho que las mujeres aún no poseen legalmente.

    Full Text Available Las autoras de este artículo integramos un proyecto de investigación cuyo objetivo es analizar las articulaciones de subjetividad y agencia que se producen a partir del entramado de los clivajes étnico, de clase, de género y de edad. Partimos de entender que ninguno de estos clivajes opera separado de los demás sino que las subjetividades y las agencias emergen de una trama en la que los posicionamientos que visibilizan alguno de los clivajes implican otros que operan sin ser visibles. Tomamos como instrumentos conceptuales dos propuestas teóricas de Judith Butler. La primera de ellas tiene que ver con el debate en el campo de la teoría feminista por los supuestos etnocéntricos que subyacen al postulado de que la diferencia de género es anterior a otras diferencias y constituye una esfera autónoma de relaciones. La segunda es el uso de la metáfora del travestismo para analizar casos en los que la rearticulación de subjetividad falla en la materialización de la norma que es necesaria para completar la identificación. Con estos instrumentos teóricos analizaremos travestismos de género, clase, edad y etnicidad en Río Negro y Chubut.

    The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are working together to study sea-floor environments off the northeast coast of the United States. During 2008, NOAA survey H11996 collected multibeam echosounder data in a 65-square kilometer area in central Rhode Island Sound, southeast of Point Judith, Rhode Island. During 2010, the USGS collected bottom photographs and sediment samples from 25 stations in this study area. The bathymetry, photography, and sediment data are used to interpret sea-floor features including scour depressions, sand waves, trawl marks, and dredge spoils. Scour depressions cover the bathymetric highs in much of the study area. Sand waves are located mostly in the southwest, and trawl marks tend to be in the northern regions. Dredge spoils are located at a disposal site in a bathymetric low in the western end of the study area. Most stations have a sea-floor surface of sand or silty sand, but eight of the stations have boulders to pea-sized gravel or gravelly sediment on the surface. Photographs show sandy areas typically have scattered burrows, shells, amphipod communities, and worm tubes. Boulders and cobbles are commonly overgrown with hydrozoans and anemones.

Kaum eines der vielen Themen, denen sich die US-amerikanische Autorin seit der Jahrtausendwende widmet, kann ohne Kenntnis ihrer Überlegungen zu diesem Terminus angemessen verstanden werden. Der Versuch einer Rekonstruktion ihrer Konzeption von Vulnerabilität steht allerdings vor der Schwierigkeit, dass Butlers Gedanken hierzu über zahlreiche Texte hinweg verstreut sind, wobei bisweilen unterschiedliche Aspekte betont und verschiedene Schwerpunktsetzungen vorgenommen werden. Im vorliegenden Beitrag werden Butlers vulnerabilitätstheoretische Ausführungen in gebündelter Weise dargestellt und interpretiert. Dabei wird (1 die Bedeutsamkeit von Butlers Überlegungen zur Vulnerabilität für ihre Vorstellung von Körperlichkeit aufgewiesen, (2 der Zusammenhang von Vulnerabilität und Anerkennung erläutert und (3 gezeigt, welche ethischen Erwägungen Butler ausgehend von ihrer Anerkennungskonzeption und ihrem Denken der Vulnerabilität anstellt und inwiefern Vulnerabilität und politische Handlungsfähigkeit einander nicht ausschließen.

    2014-01-01

    We examine numerically the gravitational wave recoil in non-axisymmetric Robinson-Trautman spacetimes. We construct characteristic initial data for the Robinson-Trautman dynamics which are interpreted as corresponding to the early post-merger state of two boosted colliding black holes with a common apparent horizon. Our analysis is based on the Bondi-Sachs energy-momentum conservation laws which regulate the radiative transfer processes involved in the emission of gravitational waves. We evaluate the Bondi-Sachs momentum flux carried out by gravitational waves and the associated net kick velocity defined (in a zero-initial-Bondi-momentum frame) as proportional to the total gravitational wave impulse imparted on the system. The kick velocity distributions are obtained and analyzed for two distinct classes of initial data corresponding to the early post-merger state of (i) non-head-on collisions and (ii) head-on collisions of black holes. For the first class (i), the net gravitational wave momentum fluxes and a...

    1993-08-01

    In a study sponsored by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Pacific Northwest Laboratory has developed and applied a methodology for deriving plant-specific risk-based inspection guidance for the auxiliary feedwater (AFW) system at pressurized water reactors that have not undergone probabilistic risk assessment (PRA). This methodology uses existing PRA results and plant operating experience information. Existing PRA-based inspection guidance information recently developed for the NRC for various plants was used to identify generic component failure modes. This information was then combined with plant-specific and industry-wide component information and failure data to identify failure modes and failure mechanisms for the AFW system at the selected plants. H. B. Robinson was selected as one of a series of plants for study. The product of this effort is a prioritized listing of AFW failures which have occurred at the plant and at other PWRs. This listing is intended for use by NRC inspectors in the preparation of inspection plans addressing AFW risk-important components at the H. B. Robinson plant.

    In this paper, it is proved that the ideal Iω of the weak polynomial identities of the superalgebra M1,1(E) is generated by the p roper polynomials [x1,x2, x3] and [x2,x1][xa,x1][x4, x1]. This is proved for any infinite field F of characteristic different a basis and the dimension of any multihomogeneous component of the quotient algebra B/(B ∩ Iw). We also compute the Hilbert series of this algebra. One of the main tools of this paper is a variant we found of the Robinson-Schensted-Knuth correspondence defined for single semistandard tableaux of double shape.

    Prulifloxacin is a kind of new oral taking antibiotic of fluoroquinolone. Conjugation reaction of prulifloxacin with trypsin in Britton-Robinson buffer solution of pH 7.96 was analyzed by UV-vis spectrophotometry and fluorescence spectrometry. The intrinsic fluorescence of trypsin was strongly quenched by prulifloxacin. This effect was rationalized in terms of a static quenching procedure. The binding parameters have been evaluated by fluorescence quenching methods. Negative values DELTAG{sup 0} for the formation of prulifloxacin-trypsin complex implied that both hydrogen bonds and hydrophobic interactions might play a significant role in prulifloxacin binding to trypsin. The binding distance deduced from the efficiency of energy transfer was 0.84 nm for prulifloxacin-trypsin. Furthermore, association constants and binding mechanism were successfully derived from the fluorescence spectra. UV-vis detections supported a change in the secondary structure of proteins caused by the interaction of prulifloxacin with trypsin.

  7. Lieb-Robinson bounds for multi-commutators and applications to response theory

    CERN Document Server

    Bru, J -B

    2017-01-01

    Lieb-Robinson bounds for multi-commutators are effective mathematical tools to handle analytic aspects of infinite volume dynamics of non-relativistic quantum particles with short-range, possibly time-dependent interactions. In particular, the existence of fundamental solutions is shown for those (non-autonomous) C*-dynamical systems for which the usual conditions found in standard theories of (parabolic or hyperbolic) non-autonomous evolution equations are not given. In mathematical physics, bounds on multi-commutators of an order higher than two can be used to study linear and non-linear responses of interacting particles to external perturbations. These bounds are derived for lattice fermions, in view of applications to microscopic quantum theory of electrical conduction discussed in this book. All results also apply to quantum spin systems, with obvious modifications. In order to make the results accessible to a wide audience, in particular to students in mathematics with little Physics background, basics...

    Full Text Available Este artículo propone una relectura de las acciones y escritos del comerciante estadounidense William Davis Robinson en el contexto de la literatura de viaje de los siglos XVIII y XIX , que ha sido examinado en décadas recientes por algunos autores. Este trabajo se basa en el concepto de “viajeros de revoluciones”, bajo el cual entendemos individuos que se encuentran en un país, región o ciudad de manera temporal, que se ven a sí mismos como visitantes u observadores ex - ternos, describen y analizan un proceso político o social de transformación con una mirada externa y escriben para un público externo. Este trabajo analiza dos textos: Una somera visión de la América española , publicado en 1815, y Memorias de la Revolución Mexicana , que apareció en 1820. En este artículo se sostiene y se busca demostrar que las Memorias de Robinson pueden ser entendidas como literatura de viaje favorable a la “revolución mexicana”, mientras que el segundo texto constituye una informada descripción de los recursos existentes y las posibili - dades de relaciones comerciales con México y los demás países de América del Sur, una vez que estos hayan ganado su independencia. Este texto constituye también un manifiesto que proclama a los Estados Unidos como líder y guar - dián de la libertad en este hemisferio, en oposición a las potencias europeas, como España y Gran Bretaña.

    Full Text Available The National Biodiversity Strategy developed in Chile aims to protect 10% of the surface area of the most relevant marine ecosystems. The waters around the Juan Fernández Archipelago were not protected until 2014, when a Multiple Use Marine Protected Area was created in the 12 nautical miles around the archipelago, which includes five marine parks in sites of high conservation value. Three of these parks are located around Robinson Crusoe Island. This study aims to define a baseline for monitoring the impact of the marine protected area and provides ecological information to improve the understanding of coastal marine ecosystems around Robinson Crusoe Island. In addition to a characterization of bathymetry and habitats, intertidal and subtidal communities were sampled using transects and quadrats within the marine parks. We quantified species richness and abundances, which were later organized into functional groups for algae and trophic groups for mobile organisms. Although species richness did not vary between sites nor among the habitats sampled, we observed important differences in species abundance and composition as well as in functional and trophic groups both between sites and habitats. Among our results, we highlight: a the dominance of endemic algae in intertidal and subtidal (mainly corticated and corticated foliose habitats, b high abundances of macroinvertebrate herbivores in intertidal habitats and detrivores in subtidal habitats, c dominance of invertivorous fish in the subtidal, which are the primary predators of mobile benthic organisms. This characterization includes both the inter and subtidal coastal communities of the Juan Fernández Archipelago.

    Full Text Available El enfoque interpretativo de la visión social de la bibliotecóloga mexicana Judith Licea se articuló en tres esferas: 1. bibliotecas y sociedad excluyente, 2. bibliotecas y sociedad incluyente, 3. bibliotecas y sociedad plural. Mediante dos esquemas que van de lo general a lo particular, se configuró el pensamiento de Judith Licea en torno a esas tres dimensiones. Este análisis concluye que la óptica social bibliotecológica de la autora hace posible tejer una serie de categorías asociadas a lo que hoy se denomina bibliotecología social; asimismo, que la idea homogénea en la esfera de la gestión de servicios bibliotecarios y de información debe quedar atrás para dar paso a la idea diferenciada. También se desprende del estudio que los profesionales de la biblioteca tienen un gran reto en los procesos formales, informales y continuos de enseñanza-aprendizaje.

    We review the mechanisms of the mental operation to identify the disease in family medicine, using five cases where the diagnosis process began in "the trace that should not be there" or "Robinson sign" as happened to Robinson Crusoe when he saw a human footprint on the beach of the "desert island". How could it be there?; It was a mystery, and based on metaphors, we framed the mechanism of "the trace that should not be there" mainly in the first phase of clinical or intuitive reasoning, but this intuition of the doctor should be accompanied by the diagnostic process, like the "basso continuo" of Baroque music, allowing improvisation and personal style, and in this way, eventually observing the footprint "that should not have been there" that may arise in the analytical, as well as in the verification phase of the assumptions made.

    We examine the gravitational wave recoil waves and the associated net kick velocities in non-axisymmetric Robinson-Trautman spacetimes. We use characteristic initial data for the dynamics corresponding to non-head-on collisions of black holes. We make a parameter study of the kick distributions, corresponding to an extended range of the incidence angle $\\rho_0$ in the initial data. For the range of $\\rho_0$ examined ($3^{\\circ} \\leq \\rho_0 \\leq 110^{\\circ}$) the kick distributions as a function of the symmetric mass parameter $\\eta$ satisfy a law obtained from an empirical modification of the Fitchett law, with a parameter $C$ that accounts for the non-zero net gravitational momentum wave fluxes for the equal mass case. The law fits accurately the kick distributions for the range of $\\rho_0$ examined, with a rms normalized error of the order of $5 \\%$.

    Highlights: > Extended PR-EOS was presented for VLE of H{sub 2}O/Salt/CO{sub 2} systems at high pressure. > The proposed EPR-EOS is based upon contributions to the Helmholtz energy. > Born, Margules, and Debye-Huckel or mean spherical approximation terms were used. > Two different mixing rules Panagiotopoulos and Reid and Kwak and Mansoori (KM) were used. > A combination of KM mixing rule with DH term results more accurate VLE results. - Abstract: A modification of the extended Peng-Robinson equation of state (PR-EOS) is presented to describe the (vapour + liquid) equilibria of systems containing water and salts. The modification employs three additional terms including a Born term, a Margules term and two terms separately used for estimation of the long-range electrostatic interactions (the Debye-Huckel (DH) or the mean spherical approximation (MSA) terms). Effects of two mixing rules, first, the Panagiotopoulos and Reid mixing rule (PR) and, second, the Kwak and Mansoori mixing rule (KM), on the final values of VLE calculations are also investigated. The results show that the KM mixing rule is more appropriate than the PR mixing rule. The proposed equation of state is used to calculate the (vapour + liquid) equilibrium (VLE) of the systems containing (water + sodium sulphate + carbon dioxide) and (water + sodium chloride + carbon dioxide) at high pressure. The comparison of calculated results with the experimental data shows that a combination of KM mixing rule with the DH term results a more accurate VLE values.

    The Siam weed, Chromolaena odorata (L.) King & Robinson, Family Asteraceae, was found to be a new Pb hyperaccumulator by means of field surveys on Pb soil and hydroponic studies. Plants from field collection accumulated 1377 and 4236mgkg(-1) Pb in their shoots and roots, respectively, and could tolerate soil Pb concentrations up to 100000 mgkg(-1) with a translocation factor of 7.62. Very low concentrations of Cd and Zn were found in plants collected from the field. Under nutrient solution culture condition, C. odorata from the contaminated site (CS) and from non-contaminated site (NCS) grew normally with all three metals (Pb, Cd, Zn) supplied. However, the relative growth rates of all treated plants decreased with increased metal concentrations. The percentage uptakes of Pb, Cd, and Zn by C. odorata increased with increasing metal concentrations. Pb concentration in shoots and roots reached its highest values (1772.3 and 60655.7mgkg(-1), respectively) at a Pb supply level of 10mgl(-1). While the maximum concentrations of Cd (0.5mgl(-1)) in shoots and roots of C. odorata were 102.3 and 1440.9mgkg(-1), and the highest concentrations of Zn (20mgl(-1)) were 1876.0 and 7011.8mgkg(-1), respectively. The bioaccumulation coefficients of Pb and Cd were greater than 1000. These results confirm that C. odorata is a hyperaccumulator which grows rapidly, has substantial biomass, wide distribution and has a potential for the phytoremediation of metal contaminated soils.

    Sophora fernandeziana is the only legume endemic to Isla Robinson Crusoe (Archipelago Juan Fernández, Chile); it is uncommon and becoming rare. Although its preservation status is listed as "vulnerable," as with many species, little is known of its reproductive biology. Flowering phenology, floral morphology, nectar features, breeding system, and visitors were analyzed in two populations. Flowering is from late winter to early spring. Flowers last 6 d and have a number of ornithophilous features. A floral nectary begins to secrete highly concentrated nectar 48 h after flowers open. Nectar secretion increases as the flower ages but culminates in active nectar reabsorption as the flower senesces. Nectar production is negatively affected by nectar removal. Self-pollen germinates and tubes grow down the style. However, pollen tubes were only observed to enter the ovaries in open pollinated styles, suggesting the possibility of an ovarian self-incompatibility mechanism. Both sexes of the two hummingbird species that inhabit the island are regular visitors. Low fruit and seed set, low genetic diversity, and a shrinking number of populations all contribute to increased concern about the future of this species-and perhaps the hummingbirds that depend on it.

    Invasive species significantly contribute to biological change and threaten biodiversity, with a growing body of evidence that plant invasions affect higher trophic levels. We explored the relative importance of plant invasion and forest structure on aerial arthropod abundance, diversity, and composition on Robinson Crusoe Island, Chile. We used flight intercept traps to sample aerial arthropods within distinct canopy strata of native and invaded forests over 3-mo periods in 2006 and 2007. Arthropod abundance and diversity were higher in native than invaded forest, and arthropod communities were distinct between forest types. In both forest types, arthropod abundance was highest in the lower canopy, and canopy strata exhibited some differences in arthropod community composition. Several morphospecies were distinctly associated with each forest type. The strong differences in aerial arthropod communities associated with the invasion of native forest by non-native plants may affect other trophic levels, such as insectivorous birds. Steps to stop invasive plant spread and to restore native forest composition and structure are needed to safeguard the integrity of native communities, from plants to higher-level consumers.

    Full Text Available In his adaptation of Robinson Crusoe, Campe sets out to examine the legitimacy of his contemporary social reality (in Europe in the broadest sense by tracing its origin back to the most basic roots conceivable. The experimental character of his book is emphasised and—to an extent—explicitly introduced through the frame narrative which constitutes Campe’s most important addition to Defoe’s story: Here the emergence of the rules and routines are extensively mooted by the father (who relates Robinson’s story as a framed narrative and his children who still have to internalise, grasp, and situate the moral rules around them and frequently offer divergent perspectives in the process. The frame narrative connects the moral “ontogeny” of the children to the “phylogenetics” of civilisation and suggests that both can be superimposed on one another. I will work with concepts that focus on the differentiation between “innate” moral characteristics and their social transformation on a cognitive, evolutionary level, from which Campe clearly deviates. However, his short-circuiting of the individual and the phylogeny leads to very similar specifications as laid out by, for instance, Moral Foundations Theory.

    Iatrogenic injury due to incorrectly sited drains and tubes is a rare but recognized complication and can occur at many different sites. Migration of correctly sited drains and tubes is rarer still. A handful of rare cases involving longstanding ventriculoperitoneal and lumboperitoneal shunts migrating and causing perforation of the bowel exist, often complicated by central nervous system sepsis. We present a previously unreported complication of a Robinson drain, one of 2 abdominal drains inserted under direct vision during a subtotal gastrectomy for carcinoma, in a frail 78-year-old woman. Twenty-four days postoperatively, after a period of predictably slow but steady recovery, bile-stained fluid was noted in the drain. Unfortunately, the patient rapidly deteriorated and died. Autopsy revealed multiorgan failure due to peritonitis. Both drains were noted to be correctly and firmly sutured to the skin. The tip of the right-sided Robinson drain was found to have migrated, eroding into the liver parenchyma, resulting in biliary peritonitis. The left-sided Robinson drain was correctly sited in the peritoneal cavity. We present the postmortem findings and a review of the literature.

  12. A Componentwise Convex Splitting Scheme for Diffuse Interface Models with Van der Waals and Peng--Robinson Equations of State

    KAUST Repository

    Fan, Xiaolin

    2017-01-19

    This paper presents a componentwise convex splitting scheme for numerical simulation of multicomponent two-phase fluid mixtures in a closed system at constant temperature, which is modeled by a diffuse interface model equipped with the Van der Waals and the Peng-Robinson equations of state (EoS). The Van der Waals EoS has a rigorous foundation in physics, while the Peng-Robinson EoS is more accurate for hydrocarbon mixtures. First, the phase field theory of thermodynamics and variational calculus are applied to a functional minimization problem of the total Helmholtz free energy. Mass conservation constraints are enforced through Lagrange multipliers. A system of chemical equilibrium equations is obtained which is a set of second-order elliptic equations with extremely strong nonlinear source terms. The steady state equations are transformed into a transient system as a numerical strategy on which the scheme is based. The proposed numerical algorithm avoids the indefiniteness of the Hessian matrix arising from the second-order derivative of homogeneous contribution of total Helmholtz free energy; it is also very efficient. This scheme is unconditionally componentwise energy stable and naturally results in unconditional stability for the Van der Waals model. For the Peng-Robinson EoS, it is unconditionally stable through introducing a physics-preserving correction term, which is analogous to the attractive term in the Van der Waals EoS. An efficient numerical algorithm is provided to compute the coefficient in the correction term. Finally, some numerical examples are illustrated to verify the theoretical results and efficiency of the established algorithms. The numerical results match well with laboratory data.

    Instances of discrete quantum systems coupled to a continuum of oscillators are ubiquitous in physics. Often the continua are approximated by a discrete set of modes. We derive error bounds on expectation values of system observables that have been time evolved under such discretised Hamiltonians. These bounds take on the form of a function of time and the number of discrete modes, where the discrete modes are chosen according to Gauss quadrature rules. The derivation makes use of tools from the field of Lieb-Robinson bounds and the theory of orthonormal polynomials.

  14. Bel-Robinson as stress-tensor gradients and their extensions to massive spin (0,1,2)

    2015-01-01

    We show that the Bel-Robinson (BR) tensor is - generically, as well as in its original GR setting - an autonomously conserved part of the, manifestly conserved, double gradient of a system's stress-tensor. This suggests its natural extension from GR to matter models, first to (known) massless scalars and vectors, then to massive ones, including tensors. These massive versions are to be expected, given that they arise upon KK reduction of massless D+1 ones. We exhibit the resulting spin (0, 1, 2) "massive" BR.

    Water column hydrophone stations of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO) International Monitoring System (IMS) comprise typically two triplets of moored hydrophones deployed on both sides of an island. Triplet distances vary approximately between 50 - 200 km from the island, with each triplet connected to the receiving shore equipment by fibre-optic submarine data cables. Once deployed, the systems relay underwater acoustic waveforms in the band 1 - 100 Hz in real time to Vienna via a shore based satellite link. The design life of hydroacoustic (HA) stations is at least 20 years, without need for any maintenance of the underwater system (UWS). The re-establishment of hydrophone station HA03 at Robinson Crusoe Island (670 km West of the Chilean mainland) is presented here. The station was destroyed in February 2010 by a Tsunami induced by an 8.8 magnitude earthquake. After a major engineering and logistical undertaking HA03 is now back in operation since April 2014. The main phases of the project are presented: (i) the installation of a shore facility for the reception of the hydrophone data from the UWS, which also relays the data back to the CTBTO International Data Center (IDC) in Vienna via a real-time satellite connection, (ii) the manufacturing and testing of the system to meet the stringent requirements of the Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty, and (iii) the installation of the UWS with a state-of-the-art cable ship. Examples of data acquired by HA03 are also presented. These include hydroacoustic signals from the 1 April 2014 magnitude 8.2 earthquake in Northern Chile, bursting underwater bubbles from a submarine volcano near the Mariana Islands (15,000 Km away from the station), and vocalizations from the numerous marine mammals which transit in the vicinity of HA03. The use of CTBTO data for scientific purposes is possible via the virtual Data Exploitation Centre (vDEC), which is a platform that enables registered researchers to access

  16. “Abused, neglected,—unhonoured,—unrewarded”: The Economics of Authorial Labor in the Writings of Mary Robinson

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jennifer L. Airey

    2016-04-01

    Full Text Available This essay examines one of the central preoccupations of Mary Robinson’s authorial career, a concern with the poor financial treatment of authors. Writers, Robinson suggests, are demeaned by predatory publishers, heartless or anti-intellectual aristocratic patrons, and a disinterested, distractible reading public, none of whom care to compensate the author for the labors of her pen. In a culture that neither recognizes nor rewards female intellect, women authors are particularly vulnerable, but Robinson’s criticisms transcend the problems caused by gender alone; male authors, too, could fall into penury when their labor was insufficiently valued. Rejecting the Romantic ethos of the solitary genius dying for his art, Robinson calls for a reassessment of authorship’s value, not only as a social and cultural good, but as a valid form of work; she insists that mental labor is labor in the economic sense of the term, and that it deserves compensation with a living wage. Her writings are thus marked by a keen sense of disgust at a culture that neither recognizes economic value in literary creation, nor feels obligated to remunerate the artist for her creations.

    Full Text Available The following article intends to approach some aspects of bourdiean thoughts in order to develop an approach to the notion of gender and the way in which – within an androcentric symbolic order and a normative heterosexual matrix – function these diagrams in the way gender makes up the subjective corporal form. From those notions, we want to reflect about the emergency of sexual identities that transgress the cultural precepts around gender founded in doxic experience. Likewise, we will sketch a brief reference among inconscient dimension across psychoanalytical tradition and performative theory across Judith Butler in the feminists debates.Through this conceptual framework we will attempt to examine how may the dominant representations of femininity, androcentric and heterosexually regulated, influence the identity formation of a feminine transsexual person, founded in the morphological ideal which has sustenance in the man-woman dichotomy, leaving the questioning open about the ways that the transgressive assumption of sex of what appears like the order of things may take in a binomic gender matrix, examining the reception of this debates in te Gender Identity Law N° 26.743

    2009-09-01

    Full Text Available When the New Testament is interpreted, directly preceding literature is largely neglected. The dialectical terms, discourse and contra-discourse do not often surface in research on this period. This is especially the case with reference to women. Jesus Ben Sira (ca. 196 BCE as well as other wisdom writers had quite a negative view of women. Although it has previously been argued that this negative discourse on women was challenged by Judith, this article goes further: the Additions to Esther and Susanna are added as possible challenging discourses. It is argued that these texts convincingly confront Ben Sira’s negative views and add substantial value to the worth and status of women. During the CE, both Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul had a mainly positive view of women. Positive ideas and allusions from texts are pointed out that might have their roots in the Apocrypha. Lastly, this article argues that the disputed Pauline letters contain a swing back towards Jesus Ben Sira’s negative view of women.

    2016-06-01

    This research addresses a sequential convex splitting method for numerical simulation of multicomponent two-phase fluids mixture in a single-pore at constant temperature, which is modeled by the gradient theory with Peng-Robinson equation of state. The gradient theory of thermodynamics and variational calculus are utilized to obtain a system of chemical equilibrium equations which are transformed into a transient system as a numerical strategy on which the numerical scheme is based. The proposed numerical algorithm avoids computing Hessian matrix arising from the second-order derivative of homogeneous contribution of free energy; it is also quite robust. This scheme is proved to be unconditionally component-wise energy stable. The Raviart-Thomas mixed finite element method is applied to spatial discretization.

    1994-01-01

    The `runaway solutions' of the Lorentz-Dirac equation of a charged particle interacting with its own field in classical electrodynamics are well-known. This type of self accelerated phenomena also exists in the solutions of the Einstein-Maxwell equations in general relativity. In particular, runaway solutions occur in a class of simple models known as the `Asymptotically Flat Robinson-Trautman Einstein-Maxwell' (AFRTEM) spacetimes. Consequently these spacetimes cannot evolve to their unique regular steady state, viz. a charged non-rotating black hole. This seems to contradict the established results that charged non-rotating black holes are stable under first order perturbations. We show that if an AFRTEM spacetime also possesses an apparent horizon, then it has a Lyapunov functional. This suggests that the evolution equations with additional constraints arising from the apparent horizon would evolve stably to a charged non-rotating black hole. We also demonstrate that the linearised equations of these restri...

  5. A New Alpha-function for the Peng-Robinson Equation of State:Application to Natural Gas

    Hamid Saffari; Alireza Zahedi

    2013-01-01

    Cubic equations of state (EOSs) are simple and easy at calculation. One way of improving the accuracy of a cubic EOS is through the modification of temperature-dependent energy parameter by using alpha-function. The industrial applications of natural gas are very wide and as a result, prediction of thermodynamic properties and phase behavior of natural gas is an important part of design for such processes. In this work we develop a newα-function for the Peng-Robinson (PR) EOS with the parameters optimized especially for natural gas components. The parameters are generalized as a linear function of acentric factor. The results are compared to the predictions from original PR EOS and otherα-functions in literature. It is shown that the newα-function presents a good accu-racy with the average deviation of 1.42%for natural gas components.

    1989-01-01

    An attempt is made in this work to combine the Enskog theory of transport properties with the simple cubic Peng-Robinson (PR) equation of state. The PR equation of state provides the density dependence of the equilibrium radial distribution function. A slight empirical modification of the Enskog equation is proposed to improve the accuracy of correlation of thermal conductivity and viscosity coefficient for dense gases and liquids. Extensive comparisons with experimental data of pure fluids are made for a wide range of fluid states with temperatures from 90 to 500 K and pressures from 1 to 740 atm. The total average absolute deviations are 2.67% and 2.02% for viscosity and thermal conductivity predictions, respectively. The proposed procedure for predicting viscosity and thermal conductivity is simple and straightforward. It requires only critical parameters and acentric factors for the fluids.

  7. On two-parameter equations of state and the limitations of a hard sphere Peng-Robinson equation

    Science.gov (United States)

    Harmens, A.; Jeremiah, Dawn E.

    Simple two-parameter equations of state are exceptionally effective for calculations on systems of small, uncomplicated molecules. They are therefore extremely useful for vapour-liquid equilibrium calculations in cryogenic and light hydrocarbon process design. In a search for further improvement three two-parameter equations of state with a co-volume repulsion term and three with a hard sphere repulsion term have been investigated. Their characteristic constants at the critical point have been compared. The procedure for fitting the two parameters to empirical data in the subcritical region was analysed. A perturbed hard sphere equation with a Peng-Robinson attraction term was shown to be unsuitable for application over a wide range of p, T conditions. A similar equation with a Redlich-Kwong attraction term gives good service in the cryogenic range.

    Using the Newman-Penrose formalism, are obtained the {Omega}{sub r} projections of the Lanczos spintensor over the null tetrad for the Robinson-Trautman (RT) solutions of the vacuum space and Einstein-Maxwell fields. Specifically, the authors are concerned with the Weyl-Lanczos relationships for the II, III and D Petrov`s type of the RT afore-mentioned metrics. The presented approach considers the most general case of the functions P(x{sup 1}, x{sup 2}, u) and H(x{sup 1}, x{sup 2}, r, u), that characterize the metrics, resulting in a procedure by far simpler than equivalent methods that use spinors and tensors in order to determine the K{sub ijr} Lanczos spintensor.

    Full Text Available A study of the biostratigraphy and sedimentology of Holocene deposits on Robinson Crusoe Island (RCI on the Juan Fernández Ridge (JFR indicates that a~dramatic but localized uplift occurred since 8000 BP, at a rate of about 8.5 mm yr−1. In fact, supratidal flats and sand layers with marine gastropods (mostly Nerita sp. are now exposed ca. 70 m a.s.l., and covered by transitional dunes. The last volcanic activity on RCI occurred at ca. 0.8 Ma (active hotspot located 280 km further west and there is no sign of a compensating bulge that explains this uplift, isobaths of the sea floor instead suggesting general subsidence. However, modeling indicates that large-scale landslides followed by isostatic rebound are a viable explanation, partially reflected in the low-resolution bathymetry of the area.

    The purpose of the present study to examine the antibacterial and cytotoxic properties of ethanol extract of leaves of Mikania cordata (Burm.f.) B.L. Robinson. To determine antibacterial activities, the extract was tested against four Gram positive and six Gram negative bacteria at three concentrations (500, 800, 1000 μg disc-1) through disc diffusion method. The extract showed moderate antibacterial actions and that was increased by increasing the concentration of the sample. The maximum antimicrobial potential was obtained against Shigella flexneri and no sen sitivity was found for Klebsiella sp. Comparatively gram-positive bacteria demonstrated more susceptibility to the extract than gram-negative bacteria. Cytotoxic property of the sample was done using Brine shrimp lethality bioassay where it did not show noticeable toxicity. So, our present study reveals that the leaves extract of M. cordata possess considerable antibacterial properties along with lesser amount of cytotoxicity PMID:24826008

  12. Biostratigraphic evidence of dramatic Holocene uplift of Robinson Crusoe Island, Juan Fernández Ridge, SE Pacific Ocean

    A study of the biostratigraphy and sedimentology of Holocene deposits on Robinson Crusoe Island (RCI) on the Juan Fernández Ridge (JFR) indicates that a~dramatic but localized uplift occurred since 8000 BP, at a rate of about 8.5 mm yr-1. In fact, supratidal flats and sand layers with marine gastropods (mostly Nerita sp.) are now exposed ca. 70 m a.s.l., and covered by transitional dunes. The last volcanic activity on RCI occurred at ca. 0.8 Ma (active hotspot located 280 km further west) and there is no sign of a compensating bulge that explains this uplift, isobaths of the sea floor instead suggesting general subsidence. However, modeling indicates that large-scale landslides followed by isostatic rebound are a viable explanation, partially reflected in the low-resolution bathymetry of the area.

  13. Two-Phase Fluid Simulation Using a Diffuse Interface Model with Peng--Robinson Equation of State

    In this paper, two-phase fluid systems are simulated using a diffusive interface model with the Peng-Robinson equation of state (EOS), a widely used realistic EOS for hydrocarbon fluid in the petroleum industry. We first utilize the gradient theory of thermodynamics and variational calculus to derive a generalized chemical equilibrium equation, which is mathematically a second-order elliptic partial differential equation (PDE) in molar density with a strongly nonlinear source term. To solve this PDE, we convert it to a time-dependent parabolic PDE with the main interest in its final steady state solution. A Lagrange multiplier is used to enforce mass conservation. The parabolic PDE is then solved by mixed finite element methods with a semi-implicit time marching scheme. Convex splitting of the energy functional is proposed to construct this time marching scheme, where the volume exclusion effect of an EOS is treated implicitly while the pairwise attraction effect of EOS is calculated explicitly. This scheme is proved to be unconditionally energy stable. Our proposed algorithm is able to solve successfully the spatially heterogeneous two-phase systems with the Peng-Robinson EOS in multiple spatial dimensions, the first time in the literature. Numerical examples are provided with realistic hydrocarbon components to illustrate the theory. Furthermore, our computational results are compared with laboratory experimental data and verified with the Young-Laplace equation with good agreement. This work sets the stage for a broad extension of efficient convex-splitting semi-implicit schemes for numerical simulation of phase field models with a realistic EOS in complex geometries of multiple spatial dimensions.

    In this paper, we present two second-order numerical schemes to solve the fourth order parabolic equation derived from a diffuse interface model with Peng-Robinson Equation of state (EOS) for pure substance. The mass conservation, energy decay property, unique solvability and L-infinity convergence of these two schemes are proved. Numerical results demonstrate the good approximation of the fourth order equation and confirm reliability of these two schemes.

    Full Text Available Chromosome counts and karyotypes of two species of Chrysolaena H. Robinson 1988 are presented in this paper. Mitotic analysis revealed that both taxa have x=10, a basic chromosome number considered characteristic of the genus. The chromosome number and the karyotype of C. cristobaliana are reported for the first time, as well as a new cytotype and the karyotype of C. sceptrum. Chrysolaena cristobaliana showed heptaploid cytotype with 2n=7x=70 and a karyotype composed of 46 m + 24 sm chromosomes. On the other hand, C. sceptrum presented tetraploid cytotype with 2n=4x=40 and a karyotype with 30 m + 10 sm chromosomes. Accessory chromosomes were observed in cells of both species. The chromosome analysis showed that these species differ in the chromosome number and the total chromosome length, although they showed similar chromosome morphology and asymmetry indexes. The results support the use of chromosome data in taxonomic treatments of the American members of the tribe Vernonieae.

    In this paper, a theoretical method has been introduced for developing the crossover Peng-Robinson (CPR) equation of state (EoS) which incorporates the non-classical scaling laws asymptotically near the critical point into a classical analytic equation further away from the critical point. The CPR EoS has been adopted to describe the thermodynamic properties of some pure fluids (normal alkanes from methane to n-butane and carbon dioxide) such as density, saturated pressure, isochoric heat capacity and speed of sound. Unlike the original method for the crossover transformation made by Chen et al. (Phys Rev A 42:4470-4484, 1990), we have proposed a procedure which adding an additional term into the crossover transformation to obtain the thermophysical properties at the critical point more exactly. It is shown that this new crossover method yields a satisfactory representation of the thermodynamic properties close to the critical point for pure fluids relative to the original PR EoS.

  1. Biostratigraphic evidence for dramatic Holocene uplift of Robinson Crusoe Island, Juan Fernández Ridge, SE Pacific Ocean

    Hotspot oceanic islands typically experience subsidence due to several processes related to migration of the oceanic plate away from the mantle plume and surface flexural loading. However, many other processes can interrupt subsidence, some of which may be associated with catastrophic events. A study of the biostratigraphy and sedimentology of Holocene deposits on Robinson Crusoe Island (RCI) on the Juan Fernández Ridge (JFR) indicated that dramatic uplift has occurred since 8000 years BP, at a rate of about 8.5mm yr-1. This is evidenced by supratidal flats with tepee structures and sand layers containing marine gastropods (mostly Nerita sp.) that are now exposed ca. 70 m a.s.l. The active hotspot is located 280 km further west and the last volcanic activity on RCI occurred at ca. 800 000 years BP. Long-term subsidence is evidenced by deep submerged marine abrasion terraces at RCI. As no direct evidence was found for the existence of a compensating bulge generated by the present hotspot upon which RCI would be situated, it must be concluded that subsidence in the wake of the mantle plume beneath the migrating plate was interrupted by very rapid uplift, but on a scale that did not fully compensate for the previous subsidence. This can be attributed to large-scale landslides followed by isostatic rebound, although this is only vaguely reflected in the low-resolution bathymetry of the area. To determine if this mechanism produced the uplift, a detailed bathymetric survey of the area will be required. If such a survey confirms this hypothesis, it may have implications for the short-term dynamics of vertical variations of oceanic edifices and their related effects on ecosystems and human population.

  2. A comparison between Peng-Robinson and Soave-Redlich-Kwong cubic equations of state from modification perspective

    The Cubic Equations of State (CEOSs) are the most important tools in PVT calculations due to their simplicity in use and their extrapolative abilities to condition well outside their correlation ranges. Peng-Robinson (PR) and Soave-Redlich-Kwong (SRK) are most successful in the CEOSs which have repeatedly been modified in order to improve their accuracy in wider ranges of temperature and pressure. Unfortunately, most of modifications carried out on these EOSs have no adequate justification for selecting either of these as the basic starting point for the modifications. In this paper, PR and SRK EOSs were critically compared with each other using some new features of their subcritical and supercritical results. For this purpose, the CEOSs were assessed using comprehensive tests of the PVT calculations in the vapor-liquid equilibrium (for pure hydrocarbons over a wide range of acentric factor values: Methane, Ethane Propane, Butane, Heptane and Nonane) and Joule-Thomson Inversion Curves' (JTICs) predictions (for compounds which have reliable JTICs data: Methane, Ethane, Ethylene, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Argon and Carbon dioxide) in subcritical and supercritical regions, respectively. The results indicated that the PR EOS by using any of realistic α-function forms will never be able to accurately predict the JTICs in full span. On the other hand, the subcritical results revealed that the great success of the PR CEOS in predicting liquid phase density is only due to its function in shifting the results of the SRK CEOS to the lower values with the same curve trend. In addition, the Patel and Teja's (PT) EOS, has been reevaluated and the results showed that most of the defects of PR EOS still remain. This article suggests that in order to develop CEOSs, the original SRK EOS is a better candidate than original and alternative forms of PR EOS.

    Full Text Available We describe the structure of the endemic Robinson Crusoe Island forest. We analyse the regeneration strategies of the trees: Myrceugenia fernandeziana, Fagara mayu, and Drimys confertifolia. Inventories were taken on nearly intact montane forest remnants with emphasis on spatial patterns by using Ripley's K (t function. We hypothesized that i ornithochorous and barochorous species should show a clumped regeneration, as a consequence of seed rain; ii nurse effect, if present, should also contribute to a clustered pattern; iii clustering should disappear at more developed life-stages due to self-thinning; iv if gaps influence tree mortality and regeneration, these will present grouped patterns. Myrceugenia fernandeziana was the most abundant tree species, followed by F. mayu and D. confertifolia. The diameter distribution of M. fernandeziana suggested a continuous regeneration. The diameter distribution of F. mayu was typical of species that require disturbances to regenerate, whereas the diametric pattern of D. confertifolia was intermediate compared with the previous species. M. fernandeziana demonstrated a spatially clumped regeneration given its dispersal mode (hypothesis i, but did not show association with the large tree individuals, discarding a possible nurse effect (hypothesis ii. The large specimens of M.fernandeziana were randomly distributed, likely due to self-thinning (hypothesis iii. Mortality of M. fernandeziana trees did not seem to be a consequence of local disturbances, rejecting hypothesis iv. Fagara mayu distributed randomly showing in cases some aggregation. Drimys confertifolia presented a clustered pattern. Regeneration of F. mayu and D. confertifolia occurred mainly in gaps, but also under canopy for the latter species. D. confertifolia tended to regenerate near larger trees of the same species (hypothesis ii. M. fernandeziana seems to exhibit shade tolerance, although it showed plasticity to use different regeneration

    As the spokesperson of Defoe’s thought,what Robinson did,like teaching Friday English,leading him convert to Christianity,was undoubtedly the cultural colonization of indigenous people;of course,cultural colonization was legitimated by racism;therefore,Robinson’s cultivation Friday can be taken as a successful example of implement ation of racist policies. Therefore,it is of significance to interpret the colonial ideology, cultural colonialism in Robinson Crusoe.%作为笛福思想的代言人,鲁滨逊教授星期五英语、指引他皈依基督教等等行为无疑是对土著人进行文化殖民。当然,种族主义必然赋予文化殖民以合法外衣。因此,鲁滨逊“栽培”星期五的经过可以看作帝国文化殖民史中种族主义策略实施于殖民地土著的成功范例。所以,对《鲁滨逊漂流记》的殖民主义思想、文化殖民的色彩适当地加以鉴别与批判具有一定的意义。

    Full Text Available Habitat suitability assessment of the invasive species Chromolaena odorata (L. King and Robinson from Himalayan forests reveals some interesting findings and conclusions. At different study sites, 29 of 72 species were exotic and invasive and comprised 21 genera and eight families. Indigenous species accounted for 59% of the total species and comprised 26 genera and 11 families. Perennials outnumbered the annuals in all study sites. Chromolaena odorata and Lantana camara L. were the only invasive species that were common to all sites with high importance value index values. The present work reveals that sites with high biotic pressure, maximum temperature variation, open forest canopy, and free from herbivory are the most suitable habitat for the growth of C. odorata. An elevated level of phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, soil organic matter, and nitrogen and acidic soil in all invaded sites are possible reasons for further invasion of C. odorata.

    2002-11-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo pretende constituir una aproximación desde la Psicología Social a la teoría de la performatividad de género de Judith Butler. Si bien dentro del pensamiento feminista contemporáneo se ha venido asociando la categoría "sexo" al ámbito de lo natural y la categoría "género" a la dimensión cultural y socialmente construida de las categorías asociadas al sexo (siendo presentados ambos términos como un par de opuestos, Butler efectúa en su obra una deconstrucción de dicha dicotomía, mostrando como el sexo es ya de por sí una construcción social que, por tanto, ha sido género todo el tiempo. En este texto también se intenta indagar en la aportación que la teoría de performatividad puede suponer para una teoría de la subjetividad en psicología social; para ello resulta fundamental la defensa que Butler hace de la aparentemente paradójica posibilidad de transformación social a partir de las categorías sociales que, a la vez que nos conforman como sujetos, nos están subordinando.

  13. Contrasting P-T paths of shield and rejuvenated volcanism at Robinson Crusoe Island, Juan Fernández Ridge, SE Pacific

    A remarkable expression of intraplate volcanism is the occurrence of evolutionary stages with important variations of magmatic processes and products. Plumbing systems and storage conditions seem to be different for shield and rejuvenated volcanism, two classical stages notably preserved in Robinson Crusoe Island, Juan Fernández Ridge in the SE Pacific Ocean. We here present first order geochemical features for rocks from both shield and rejuvenated stages and through geothermobarometry and textural analysis we unravel their contrasting ascent and storage history. The shield stage ( 3.8 Ma) is represented by a 900 m thick sequence of basalt, picrobasalt and picrite lava flows forming subsets according their chemistry and mineralogy: 'differentiated', 'near-primitive' and 'olivine-rich' lavas. Pressure estimates for in equilibrium assemblages are < 3.2 kbar, and temperature ranges around 1321 °C for the 'near-primitive' and 1156-1181 °C for the 'differentiated' groups. Volcanic rocks from the rejuvenated stage ( 0.9 Ma) fill the eroded morphology of the shield pile with basanite and picrite lava flows with two compositional varieties: the primitive 'high-Mg' group that crystallized clinopyroxene at pressures < 3.7 kbar and olivine at temperatures in the range 1316-1354 °C; and the 'low-Mg' group that carries notably zoned crystals formed at a wide range of pressures (0-10.8 kbar) and temperatures (1256-1295 °C). This allows us to infer contrasting patterns of ascent and storage during these archetypical stages in Robinson Crusoe Island, which also controlled volcanic processes on surface and finally shaped the island. We propose the existence of shallow magmatic reservoirs in the shield stage, where the ascending magmas would have been stored and differentiated. On the other hand, rejuvenated magmas experimented rapid ascent with polybaric crystallization and sometimes short-time storage in low-volume reservoirs. Similar conditions have been proposed in other

    Laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) was used to determine rare earth element (REE) content of 76 fossil bones collected from the Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) Two Medicine (TMF) and Judith River (JRF) Formations of Montana. REE content is distinctive at the formation scale, with TMF samples exhibiting generally higher overall REE content and greater variability in REE enrichment than JRF samples. Moreover, JRF bones exhibit relative enrichment in heavy REE, whereas TMF bones span heavy and light enrichment fields in roughly equal proportions. TMF bones are also characterized by more negative Ce anomalies and greater U enrichment than JRF bones, which is consistent with more oxidizing diagenetic conditions in the TMF. Bonebeds in both formations show general consistency in REE content, with no indication of spatial or temporal mixing within sites. Previous studies, however, suggest that the bonebeds in question are attritional assemblages that accumulated over considerable time spans. The absence of geochemical evidence for mixing is consistent with diagenesis transpiring in settings that remained chemically and hydrologically stable during recrystallization. Lithology-related patterns in REE content were also compared, and TMF bones recovered from fluvial sandstones show relative enrichment in heavy REE when compared with bones recovered from fine-grained floodplain deposits. In contrast, JRF bones, regardless of lithologic context (sandstone versus mudstone), exhibit similar patterns of REE uptake. This result is consistent with previous reconstructions that suggest that channel-hosted microfossil bonebeds of the JRF developed via the reworking of preexisting concentrations embedded in the interfluve. Geochemical data further indicate that reworked elements were potentially delivered to channels in a recrystallized condition, which is consistent with rapid adsorption of REE postmortem.

    Robinson Crusoe is a classic and popular novel. On the surface,Robinson Crusoe is an adventure story,pure and simple. But from the theory of post-colonial criticism,it reveals an obvious colonialism tendency hidden underneath the storyline. Robinson Crusoe is the very prototype of the empire builder,the pioneer colonist, who settles on the island and colonizes it. He conquers not only the island,but also his native companion. Robinson Crusoe calls for study of its colonial contexts. Indeed,from different aspects of the novel we can see very clearly colonialism characteristic.%《鲁滨逊漂流记》是一部经典小说,深受读者的欢迎。从表面上看这是一部历险小说,故事情节简单明了。然而,如果借用后殖民批评理论去解读,《鲁滨逊漂流记》就折射出了殖民主义的思想。这部小说的主角是一位典型的资产阶级殖民主义者,他定居在荒岛上,并且殖民着这片荒岛。他不但控制着整个荒岛、而且征服了他的同伴。这部小说呼唤殖民内容的研究,事实上从这部小说的每一个方面都能看出殖民主义倾向。

  19. Unconditionally stable methods for simulating multi-component two-phase interface models with Peng-Robinson equation of state and various boundary conditions

    2015-03-01

    In this paper, we consider multi-component dynamic two-phase interface models, which are formulated by the Cahn-Hilliard system with Peng-Robinson equation of state and various boundary conditions. These models can be derived from the minimum problems of Helmholtz free energy or grand potential in the realistic thermodynamic systems. The resulted Cahn-Hilliard systems with various boundary conditions are fully coupled and strongly nonlinear. A linear transformation is introduced to decouple the relations between different components, and as a result, the models are simplified. From this, we further propose a semi-implicit unconditionally stable time discretization scheme, which allows us to solve the Cahn-Hilliard system by a decoupled way, and thus, our method can significantly reduce the computational cost and memory requirements. The mixed finite element methods are employed for the spatial discretization, and the approximate errors are also analyzed for both space and time. Numerical examples are tested to demonstrate the efficiency of our proposed methods. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

    The molten salt reactor (MSR), which is one of the generation IV reactors, can meet the demand of transmutation and breeding. The thermodynamic properties of the molten salt system like LiF-NaF-BeF2 influence the design and construction of the fuel salt and coolant in the MSR for the new generation. In this paper, the equation of state of the ternary system 15%LiF-58%NaF-27%BeF2, over the temperature range from 873.15 to 1 073.15 K at one atmosphere pressure, is described using a modified Peng-Robinson (PR) equation. The densities of the ternary system and its components are estimated by this equation directly, and compared with the experimental data. Based on the equation of state, the other thermodynamic properties such as the enthalpy, entropyand heat capacity at constant pressure are estimated by the residual function method and the fugacity coefficient method respectively. The densities calculated by PR equation are highly in agr eement with the experimental data, and the enthalpy, entropy and heat capacity evaluated by the two different methods are consistent with each other. It can be concluded that the modified PR equation can be applied to evaluate the density of the molten salt system, and it is recommended that it be used as the basis to estimate the enthalpy, entropy and heat capacity of the molten salt system.

    We develop a density functional theory and investigate the interfacial tension of several pure substances N2, CO2, H2S, normal alkanes from C1 to nC10, and binary mixtures C1/C3, C1/nC5, C1/nC7, C1/nC10, CO2/nC4, N2/nC5, N2/nC6, N2/nC8, N2/nC10, nC6/nC7, nC6/nC8, and nC6/nC10. The theory is combined with the semiempirical Peng-Robinson equation of state (PR-EOS). The weighted density approximation (WDA) is adopted to extend the bulk excess Helmholtz free energy to the inhomogeneous interface. Besides, a supplementary term, quadratic density expansion (QDE), is introduced to account for the long-range characteristic of intermolecular dispersion attractions, which cannot be accurately described by the WDA. In the bulk limit, the QDE vanishes and the theory is reduced to the PR-EOS. For pure substances, the potential expansion parameter is the only adjustable parameter in the QDE and determined by using a single measured interfacial tension at the lowest temperature examined. Then without any parameter adjustment, we faithfully predict the interfacial tensions of pure substances and mixtures over a wide range of conditions.

  2. Phase equilibrium for surfactant Ls-54 in liquid CO2 with water and solubility estimation using the Peng-Robinson equation of state

    It is known that the commercial surfactant Dehypon® Ls-54 is soluble in supercritical CO2 and that it enables formation of water-in-CO2 microemulsions. In this work we observed phase equilibrium for the Ls-54/CO2 and Ls-54/water/CO2 systems in the liquid CO2 region, from 278.15 - 298.15 K. In addition, the Peng-Robinson equation of state (PREOS) was used to model the phase behavior of Ls-54/CO2 binary system as well as to estimate water solubilities in CO2. Ls-54 in CO2 can have solubilities as high as 0.086 M at 278.15 K and 15.2 MPa. The stability of the microemulsion decreases with increasing concentration of water, and lower temperatures favor increased solubility of water into the one-phase microemulsion. The PREOS model showed satisfactory agreement with the experimental data for both Ls-54/CO2 and water/CO2 systems. PMID:21037962

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

    This report discusses the impact of the change from the SAILOR cross-section library, based on the ENDF/B-IV data, to the BUGLE-96 cross-section library, based on the ENDF/B-VI data, on the neutron flux prediction in the H. B. Robinson-2 pressure vessel, in the surveillance capsule, and in the cavity. The fast flux (E > 1 MeV) from the transport calculations with the BUGLE-96 library is {approximately}6% higher in the surveillance capsule and at the PV inner wall, and {approximately}25% higher in the reactor cavity than the flux from the transport calculations with the SAILOR library. These changes result from the combined effect of the changes in the cross sections, which cause significant increases in the calculated fluxes, and much smaller decreases in the fast fluxes due to the changes in the fission spectra. The increase in the calculated fast flux due to the changes in the cross sections only is {approximately}9% in the capsule and at the pressure vessel (PV) wall, and {approximately}30% in the cavity. The changes in the fission spectra lead to decreases in the order of {approximately}3-4% in calculated fast fluxes.

    Specific language impairment (SLI) is a developmental language disorder that occurs for no known reason. The disorder affects 2-8% of children. Some scientific evidence suggests that genetic factors are implicated in the etiology of SLI. The disorder is genetically complex. Two novel loci, SLI1 on chromosome 16q24 (MIM 606711) and SLI2 on chromosome 19q13 (MIM 606712), have been found to be highly correlated with SLI. Four genes have been identified as susceptibility genes. SLI occurs at an unusually elevated incidence (35%) among the population of Robinson Crusoe Island (Chile), which also has a high consanguinity rate. This finding supports the influence of genetic mechanisms in the transmission of SLI based on a founder effect. To investigate further the genetic involvement in this population, we collected blood samples from 115 islanders from 13 families with a language-impaired proband and from 18 families with a normal-language proband. The analysis of micro satellite marker D16S515, located in locus SLI1, demonstrated that the 230-bp allele was correlated with SLI and that the 232-bp allele was correlated with normal language development. The domain containing the D16S515 marker, therefore, may play a role in language development.

    Through the analysis of the theory of Hegel, Nietzsche, Freud and Althusser, Judith But-ler points out a way of theoretical reflection on subjective self-sufficiency. The subject may submit to pow-er, while taking shape and acquiring dynamism at the same time. For Butler, to theorize subjection re-quires a psychoanalytic theory of the constitution of the subject. The spiritual world of the subject is de-termined by the power operation of the social world. But identification of the subject to power may not al-ways be realized, which implies some kind of resistance. In a sense, Butler’s research is not traditional e-mancipatory politics but the politics of recognition.%美国著名哲学家朱迪斯·巴特勒通过对黑格尔、尼采、弗洛伊德和阿尔都塞的理论的分析,指认出一条反思主体自足性的理论路径,其表明个体对权力的服从既是向权力屈从的过程,同时也是主体得以形成并获得能动性的条件。巴特勒试图从精神分析的角度去探究主体在精神方面获得建构的过程,指出主体的精神世界是由社会世界的权力运作决定的,自我在形成过程中内化了特定的社会规训。但主体对权力的认同未必总能实现,其中蕴含着某种反抗的可能。可以说,巴特勒的研究不再是传统意义上的解放政治,而是一种承认的政治、服从的政治。

    Full Text Available Este artículo, que sigue el formato de una obra teatral estructurada en tres actos a modo de introducción, nudo y desenlace, tiene el fin de presentar el talento creador de dos personalidades imprescindibles para el Abbey Theatre en el contexto del drama de crítica social de la Irlanda de principios del siglo xx: William Butler Yeats y Lennox Robinson. El primero llega a la cima en el género de la poesía, percibiéndose y mitificándose su ingenio y su figura de tal forma que eclipsará al segundo durante el periodo que dura su estrecha relación. Ambos se convertirán en dos figuras dependientes la una de la otra, y uno de ellos permanecerá a la sombra del otro en la absoluta entrega de ambos a su teatro. Lennox Robinson finalmente introducirá en el Abbey Theatre la escuela del realismo, impulsada con éxito en el Continente por el dramaturgo noruego Henrik Ibsen. El recorrido por sus obras materializa la impronta realista de Robinson en el Abbey como oposición a la huella de Yeats, colocándose aquél a la vanguardia con sus dramas de crítica social y sus comedias satíricas, que supondrán su culminación como dramaturgo y su reconocimiento final, por parte de Yeats y de sus contemporáneos, como «Man of the Theatre».

    The sense of superiority that the British like Robinson own comes from two aspects. One is the na-tional power with the strong military force which results from the progress of weapons along with their continually advancing technology, and the other is the sharp strength of the modern thinking which they themselves consider quite reasonable. The image of Robinson, as a pioneer, who is holding Bible in his hands and carrying the guns on his shoulder seems to be the best symbol of Hobbes as“Leviathan”. The reason why Robinson can bring his action of historical “creation” into success is that he, while conquering the aborigines compulsorily with the modern “art-technology”, substitute their culture for the Christian worldview, thus realizing the secret operation that aims to unify the whole world into“a unity” under the shadow of the western civilization. In the eyes of the Robinsons, the western history is that of the world. Whereas, is“Leviathan” made by the west really the gospel of the whole world?%鲁滨逊式的英国人优越感来自两方面,一是他们不断进取的技艺带来突飞猛进的器物进步所造就的船坚炮利之国力,二是其自恃合理的现代思想之尖锐力度。鲁滨逊手捧《圣经》、肩挎长枪的“拓疆者”形象,似乎是霍布斯的“利维坦”的象征。他之所以能够完成历史性的“创世”,在于强行以现代“技艺-技术”征服原住民的同时,用基督教世界观取代其文化,实现将整个世界“大一统”到西方文明阴影下的隐秘运作。在鲁滨逊们的眼里,西方的历史即世界的历史。然而,西方造就的“利维坦”真是全人类的福音吗?

Her work is marked by a strong inclination for clear, well reasoned arguments that left no room for sloppy habits of thought. The wide scope and quantity of Robinson’s writings make it difficult to present a critical evaluation of her contributions within the context of even a lengthy paper. The present one concentrates on her writings in five main areas: (i the economics of imperfect competition; (ii the theory of employment; (iii the theory of accumulation in the long run; (iv the concept of capital and the production function; and (v the problem of time in economics as reflected in her writings on the theme history versus equilibrium.

    Estimating the independent effect of "place" on health outcomes has proven quite difficult. In this issue of the Journal, Auchincloss and Diez Roux contribute a lucid introduction to agent-based simulation models and argue that they may be a fruitful alternative to current approaches to the problem. Insofar as conceptual understanding must precede empirical investigation, this author agrees. Given the obvious shortcoming of pure simulations, the key benefit of agent-based models lies in their ability to alter our thinking and/or theory. Among other things, the approach permits analysts to model (i.e., conceptualize) system dynamics, more realistic social treatment effects, endogenous contexts, and a more congenial image of human behavior.

    Asthenocotyle azorensis n. sp. (Monogenea: Microbothriidae) is described from the dermal denticles of the great lanternshark Etmopterus princeps Collett off the Azores. The type-species of the genus, A. kaikourensis Robinson, 1961, is redescribed and additional observations are made on A. taranakiensis Beverley-Burton, Klassen & Lester, 1987. The generic diagnosis is revised. The new species is distinguished from its two congeners by the large size of the pharynx and fewer testes. The ejaculatory bulb of A. kaikourensis is much larger than those of A. taranakiensis and A. azorensis and is supplied with many ducts from an extensive field of male accessory gland-cells located outside the genital pouch and extending posteriorly to the region of the germarium and external seminal vesicle. Asthenocotyle taranakiensis is distinguished from the other two species by its copulatory sclerite, which forms a double loop, although this may not be the case when the copulatory organ is extended. The bodies of A. azorensis and A. kaikourensis are similar in shape, with the maximum width approximately 37% and 25%, respectively, of the total length from the anterior end. In addition to the relatively small size of the genital pouch and ejaculatory bulb in A. azorensis and A. taranakiensis, the vaginal opening is adjacent to the common genital opening. In A. kaikourensis, the vaginal opening is distant from and posterior to the common genital opening. The functional morphology of the copulatory organ of A. azorensis is considered. The relative importance, for the taxonomy of microbothriids, of the number of testes versus the anatomy of the copulatory complex is discussed.

    In this work the Peng-Robinson equation of state, previously adapted in our laboratory to predict physical and vapor-liquid equilibrium properties of sugar juices caracterised by the pseudo-components: sugar, amino acid ,carboxylic acid and cinders in aquesus solution, was tested in the modeling and simulation of the steady-state behaviour of multiple effect evaporation plants in sugar factory. The results of simulation has been compared to the real average measurements in the SUNABEL(Sucrerie Nationale de Betterave de Loukkos,Maroc) sugar factory, and showed that the Peng-Robinson equation of state can be used to predict, with a sufficient precision, of the steady-state behaviour of multiple effect evaporation plants in sugar factory. The originality of the model in comparison with the published others models consist in takening account of purity and natural of impurity in the juice. The simultanious modular approach is used in steady state process simulation.

    The adaptation of ancient Greek tragedy Medea by American poet Robinson Jeffers, highlights human beings’ absolute dependence on nature. The power of nature represented by Medea can both bestow Jason—the representative of human beings, and punish Jason for his betray and desertion. Jeffers’ adaptation echoes his philosophy of “Inhumanism”.%美国诗人罗宾逊·杰弗斯改编的古希腊悲剧《美狄亚》突出表现了人对自然的绝对依附,化身为自然的美狄亚既可以施惠于代表人类的伊阿宋,也可以惩罚伊阿宋的背信弃义。杰弗斯的改编体现了他所提倡的“非人本主义”理念。

    According to the nature and characteristics of the post-colonial, the post-colonial factors in Robinson Crusoe are interpreted. Robinson’s encroach of the idea of“the weak”and cultural slavery, the empire building of a desert island, as well as the demonization of the east and American natives reflect the significant post-colonial thought.%结合后殖民主义的本质与特征,针对《鲁滨逊漂流记》中的后殖民主义因素加以解读。鲁滨逊对“弱者”思想的蚕食和文化奴役,荒岛帝国的构建,对东方、非美、美洲土著的妖魔化,均体现了显著的后殖民主义思想。

This model requires good values of the binary interaction parameter kij . In this work, we developed a semi-empirical correlation for kij partly based on the Huron-Vidal mixing rules. We obtained values for the adjustable parameters of the developed formula for over 60 binary systems and over 10 categories of components. The predictions of the new equation system were slightly better than the constant-kij model in most cases, except for 10 systems whose predictions were considerably improved with the new correlation.

    Full Text Available Two lobster species coexist in the southeast Pacific Juan Fernández archipelago, Jasus frontalis (Milne-Edwards, 1837 and Acantharctus delfini (Bouvier, 1909. Like most lobster species they undergo a prolonged larval period, which is particularly long for J. frontalis (> 16 months. Though typical of Palinurids, this long larval duration is usually not thought to be conducive to local recruitment. While it is known that settlement is confined to the three islands of the archipelago (Robinson Crusoe, Alejandro Selkirk and Santa Clara and Desventuradas Islands (aprox. 800 km to the north, it remains poorly understood how local larval supply allows such distribution pattern. The goal of this study is twofold. Firstly, we aimed to characterize the distribution and abundance of the larvae of these two species around Robinson Crusoe Island using plankton tows and systematic hydrographic records between October 2008 to March of 2011, thus providing the first systematic and prolonged coupled biophysical observations in the nearshore of the archipelago. We hypothesize that spatial and temporal larval distribution patterns are associated to their retention around the archipelago, thus contributing to our knowledge of the physical and biological processes maintaining their extreme isolation. Secondly, using molecular genetics, we confirm a simple taxonomic criteria to distinguish the larvae of the two species, thus aiding future studies of larval dynamics. Throughout phyllosomas of A. delfini were more abundant than that of J. frontalis. Both species were more abundant on the northern shores of Robinson Crusoe Island and generally associated with warmer and saltier waters and mostly present in the samples collected during spring and summer months. Phyllosomas of both species were more abundant during nighttime tows in the upper layer of the water column surveyed suggesting a diurnal vertical migration behavior which, for coastal dwelling meroplanktonic

    The Scotts Valley Band of Pomo Indians is located in Lake County in Northern California. Similar to the other five federally recognized Indian Tribes in Lake County participating in this project, Scotts Valley Band of Pomo Indians members are challenged by generally increasing energy costs and undeveloped local energy resources. Currently, Tribal decision makers lack sufficient information to make informed decisions about potential renewable energy resources. To meet this challenge efficiently, the Tribes have committed to the Lake County Tribal Energy Program, a multi Tribal program to be based at the Robinson Rancheria and including The Elem Indian Colony, Big Valley Rancheria, Middletown Rancheria, Habematolel Pomo of Upper Lake and the Scotts Valley Pomo Tribe. The mission of this program is to promote Tribal energy efficiency and create employment opportunities and economic opportunities on Tribal Lands through energy resource and energy efficiency development. This program will establish a comprehensive energy strategic plan for the Tribes based on Tribal specific plans that capture economic and environmental benefits while continuing to respect Tribal cultural practices and traditions. The goal is to understand current and future energy consumption and develop both regional and Tribe specific strategic energy plans, including action plans, to clearly identify the energy options for each Tribe.

    Marx’s Ecological Philosophy reveals the homogeneity and heterogeneity between humans and nature by surveying humans’ activities. Homogeneity means the harmony of humans and nature, while heterogeneity stands the contradiction. Therefore, the aim of ecological philosophy is to study the dialectical relationship between human and nature. The paper aims to survey on the dialectical relationship in“Robinson Crusoe”.%马克思生态哲学思想通过考察人类活动来认识人与自然的同质性与异质性,同质性代表人与自然的和解,而异质性代表人与自然的对立,因此生态哲学思想的研究目标为研究人与自然的对立统一的辩证关系的哲学。本文以生态哲学思想为指导,对《鲁滨孙漂流记》中人与自然的“对立统一”这一辩证关系进行论述。

    In Bodies that Matter,Judith Butler examed the material dimensions of the construction of "sex" and "body",which continued the topic of performative theory in the last book Gender Trouble.Initially,she used the power theory of Foucault to sketch the body's topography of construction.Consequently,the assumption of sex was phantasmatic identification within the psychoanalysis,although Freud and Lacan was phallocentrism.In the end,through a critical engagement with Slavoj Zizek's performative theory of names,Butler provided the resignification function of names could show us the agency of subject.%《身体之重》是美国学者朱迪斯.巴特勒继提出性别述行理论的成名作《性别麻烦》之后,继续探讨生理性别与身体在物质维度上如何述行建构这一问题的力作。一方面,她借助米歇尔.福柯的权力话语理论,对身体的物质性建构进行了考察;另一方面,她力图在精神分析理论的菲勒斯中心主义框架内揭示性别认同的幻象。通过批判齐泽克的称谓述行理论,巴特勒提出称谓的再赋义功能,认为主体在话语的掌控当中依然具有能动性。

    2012-01-01

    洛克的哲学是18世纪英国现实主义文学的思想基础。从洛克的哲学来看,笛福的小说《鲁滨孙漂流记》表现了一个近代个体解构权威并建构自我的过程。鲁滨孙违抗父命,离家出海,和洛克的政治哲学一样体现了个人在建构自我之初摆脱权威和自主选择的精神。《鲁滨孙漂流记》描述了鲁滨孙的人生经验和冒险经历,他的外部经验和内在反省构成了小说叙事的两条主线,而这两个方面正是洛克的经验认识论的两个关键词。在洛克式的双重经验中,鲁滨孙完成了自我的建构。%Locke' s philosophy constitutes the philosophical background of the 18th British realistic literature. This article argues that interpreting Robinson Crusoe from the perspective of Lockean philosophy, the novel describes the construction of self as well as the destruction of authority. Crusoe disobeys his father and leaves home for the sea, which echos strongly Locke' s idea of patriarch and self-decision. The novel alternates between Crusoe's sensual experience and inter- nal contemplation, which are the key words of Lockean epistemology, and through his dual expe- riences, Crusoe achieves his construction of the self.

    In the novels of Robinson Crusoe and Lord of the Flies,both of the authors describe desolate islands,which share similar beginnings but different endings.The author of this article compares their similarities and differences,trying to explore some reasons.It is due to the differences of writing background and the authors' viewpoint that the two islands end differently.Crusoe turns his island into a thriving colony while the children changes their island into a slaughterhouse.%《鲁滨孙漂流记》与《蝇王》都描写了主人公的荒岛历险。它们拥有相似的开端,却有不同的结局,这是因为作品的背景和作者的人生观不同。笛福生活在资本主义原始积累时期,他的世界观使他把鲁滨孙塑造成资产阶级开辟世界的英雄。而《蝇王》的作者戈尔丁参加了空前残酷的第二次世界大战,对一些人在血与火中表现出来的劣根性有着比较真切的感受,因而感到忧虑和悲愤。这样在他的笔下,原本美丽的小岛变成了屠场。

    沈祖芬翻译的《绝岛漂流记》是鲁滨逊冒险故事最早的中译本。沈译本是两万多字的缩译本,不仅仅是简单的删减,还有添增和修改。在晚清语境下,中国传统文化背景的读者的期待深刻地影响翻译的选择。沈祖芬带着晚清中国知识分子认为救亡危难需以西方为楷模的先在结构,调和中国读者对英雄的期待视野,将鲁滨逊从原著的虔诚的对上帝顺服的清教徒、冷漠的个人主义者、殖民主义者塑造为勇敢无畏者、重孝爱亲者、仁义友爱者。%"The Life and Strange Surprising Adventures of Robinson Crusoe", a novel about Robinson's adventures, was firstly translated into Chinese by Shen Zufen whose translation is a condensed version containing over twenty thousand characters, but besides omission, there are also amplification and revision. In the context of the late Qing Dynasty, the expectation of readers with traditional Chinese cultural background exerted profound influence on the selection of translators. With the pre-existent idea of Chinese intellectuals in the late Qing Dynasty that saving the nation from extinction should regard the Occident as the model, Shen Zufen mediated Chinese readers' expectation for heroes, transforming Robinson from a devout and obedient puri-tan, an indifferent individualist and colonialist to a courageous, filial, righteous and friendly people.

    The enantioselective cyclization of the prochiral cyclic substrates 1 to 7 and 26, can be carried out in the neat using -proline as catalyst. The substrates 18 to 22 and 27 could not be cyclized with S-proline but could be cyclized with a mixture of -phenylalanine and -camphorsulphonic acid. The enantioselective cyclization of prochiral acyclic triones 45 and 47 and also the racemic tricarbonyl compounds 54 to 57 could also be carried out in the \\text{neat} using -proline as catalyst. The optically active enediones obtained in the above cyclizations could also be obtained directly from 1,3-diones or 2-hydroxymethylene cycloalkanones in a one-pot reaction with methyl vinyl ketone (MVK) and S-proline in the absence of solvents. 13C NMR studies of the one-pot synthesis of S-11 and S-14 reveal that the annulations involve initial formation of an acid-base complex followed by a Michael reaction and then an enantioselective cyclization. Such enantioselective cyclizations probably occur on the surface of -proline crystals.

    波伏瓦与巴特勒分属于女性主义发展史上不同阶段的理论代表,二者的理论在很大程度上奠定了女性主义理论的发展方向,许多观念在很多方面具有对话性质,而他者这一问题一直是二者关注的重要问题之一。比较波伏瓦和巴特勒在他者问题上的看法、立场以及对现实关注的差异,可以发现女性主义理论的一些话语或实践的大致趋向:波伏瓦视他者与自我是相互性的关系,这是一种经由对方而达至对自我认知的历程;巴特勒在他者问题上一直在思考“你是谁”的问题,以及如何践行“我”对他者生命的哀悼。如何哀悼他者的生命实质反映了一个社会的生命政治秩序,而个体生命的反抗正是构建政治制度之外的另一种哀悼生命方式的内在体现。%As two outstanding representatives of feminism,Simone de Beauvoir and Judith Butler have many aspects of thoughts which can be compared and illuminated for some different tendencies of feminism at different times.Especially for the thought of the Other,Beauvoir and Butler have different views,stands and real concerns,and the conversation between them and the criticism of their thoughts exist.Beauvoir argues that the relationship of the Self and the Other is reciprocal,and Butler argues that in order to think about an other,people firstly need to know“who are you”.In the stands of life biopolitics,Butler insists that constructing a new style for mourning the life is necessary,which reflects that the rebellion of individuals in a society of hegemony is the internal expression of morning in addition.

    Full Text Available Dados de equilíbrio de fases a pressões elevadas dos sistemas binários CO2-Limoneno e CO2-Citral e do sistema ternário CO2-Limoneno-Citral foram coletados da literatura e usados na modelagem termodinâmica que emprega a equação de estado de PENG-ROBINSON [1] com: 1 Regra de mistura clássica; 2 Regra de mistura dependente da composição de STRYJEK & VERA [2]. Os parâmetros de interação binária entre CO2-Limoneno e CO2-Citral foram obtidos pelo ajuste dos modelos a dados experimentais, fazendo uso de dois programas computacionais, os quais envolvem a minimização de uma função objetivo, pelo método Simplex de NELDER & MEAD (3, que foi escrita em termos dos desvios relativos entre os pontos experimentais e os calculados pelos modelos. O equilíbrio de fases do sistema ternário foi calculado utilizando-se os parâmetros de interação binária ajustados previamente e considerando parâmetros nulos entre os componentes Limoneno e Citral. A análise dos resultados indica, para as condições supercríticas, que os dois modelos foram capazes de predizer qualitativamente o sistema ternário, fornecendo resultados compatíveis, em ordem de grandeza, com os valores experimentais.Phase equilibrium data at high pressures for CO2-Limonene and CO2-Citral binary systems and for CO2-Limonene-Citral ternary systems were collected from literature and employed in a thermodynamic modelling that uses the PENG-ROBINSON equation of state with: (1 classical mixture rule; (2 STRYJEK & VERA composition dependant mixture rule. The binary interaction parameters for the CO2-Limonene and CO2-Citral systems were obtained by fitting the models to the experimental data using two computational programmes that involved the minimisation of an objective function by the simplex method as suggested by NELDER & MEAD, written as a function of the deviation between experimental and calculated data.

    We are in a golden age for the study of brood parasitism, judging from both the quantity and quality of recent scientific publications on cuckoos, cowbirds and parasitic finches by investigators working in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia. As Johnsgard (1997) remarks in his preface, the evolutionary, ecological, and behavioural questions posed by obligate brood parasites are among the most intriguing contemporary ornithological topics. Rothstein & Robinson (1998) explain that brood parasites make ideal subjects for testing the generality of models for the evolution of social and mating behaviour, foraging behaviour, spatial distribution, and vocal development, because the strategy of providing no parental care removes constraints imposed on other birds. Since Aristotle, people have been fascinated by brood parasites, but only in the past two decades has the number of investigators working on this topic reached a critical mass and created momentum that promises many breakthroughs. New studies are being completed so rapidly that a general book is inevitably out of date on some topics by the time it is published. A complete library on brood parasitism should add two recent volumes (Morrison et al. 1999; Smith et al., in press).to the three reviewed here.

Two group contribution activity models were used in the PRWS: UNIFAC-PSRK and UNIFAC-Lby. The systems were successfully extrapolated from the binary systems to ternary and quaternary systems. Results indicate that the PRWS-UNIFAC-PSRK generally displays a better performance than the PRWS-UNIFAC-Lby.

  8. Reflections on Binary Opposition Thinking Model in English Desert Island Literature:An Interpretation of Robinson Crusoe%英国荒岛文学二元对立思维范式探析——以《鲁宾逊漂流记》为例

    汪晓明

    2011-01-01

    Moral values and standards in English desert island literature are usually expressed in the description of a series of conflicts between "the subject" and "the object". Traditional European literature often interprets people's good-and-bad in such an extreme method that intense binary opposition thoughts can be easily seen everywhere. English desert island literature is also greatly influenced by this thinking model and demonstrates obvious colonial ideologies. Robinson crusoe is a good and typical example. "The subject" in this novel always symbolizes justice and reason while "the object" always represents evil and ignorance; "the subject" is the forever conqueror and dominator while "the object" is the forever loser and the dominated. This single binary opposition thinking model conveys not only the strong English ethnocentrism but also the limited world view and ocean view at that time.%英国文学对人性的善与恶的解读往往走两个极端,体现出强烈的二元对立思想.英国荒岛文学自然也无法摆脱这种思维范式,而且折射出明显的殖民意识.就是典型代表,作品中的"主体"象征着正义和理性,而"客体"则代表邪恶和愚昧."主体"始终处于征服者和支配者的地位,而"客体"则一定处于被征服和被支配的地位.简单的二元对立思维一方面表现出英吉利民族强烈的民族优越感,另一方面也体现出作者海洋观以及世界观的时代局限性.

    Full Text Available Nota è la storia della biblica Giuditta, seduttrice e poi omicida per conto di Dio: il generale degli assiri, Oloferne, ha assediato Betulia e la bellissima vedova offre se stessa per salvare la città. Abbigliata con grande sfarzo, uscirà di notte dalle mura, raggiungerà l’accampamento nemico e, dopo aver conquistato l’ignaro comandante, lo ucciderà a tradimento durante il sonno. La pregnanza semantica di una figura come quella della betuliense è dunque particolarmente evidente: la «vedovetta» di petrarchesca memoria incarna, infatti, un prototipo eroico particolarmente complesso, poiché, se da un lato, esso evoca la vittoria del debole sul forte (secondo la vulgata tradizionale, dall’altro, diviene progressivamente emblema di forza e di trasgressione femminile contro la protervia maschile, ben rappresentata da quell’Oloferne che, vinto dall’ebbrezza e dalla concupiscenza, finirà sotto i micidiali colpi della sua spada. Giuditta, protagonista di una fabula di grande potenza narrativa, è dunque una perfetta figura del desiderio: elementi fondanti della storia sono Amore e Morte, seduzione e castrazione, inganno mulìebre, perpetrato grazie all’arte della parola, ed insipienza virile di fronte all’eccezionale bellezza della donna. Nel percorso qui proposto, si evidenziano le profonde somiglianze esistenti fra il personaggio tassiano di Armida, emblema di seduzione entro il campo nemico, e quello biblico di Giuditta. Due “feticci”, due “oggetti” del desiderio maschile destinati ad interpretare la medesima parte (ma con esiti diversi, evidentemente. Lo sguardo si allarga poi all’Europa, con particolare attenzione alla produzione francese, riformata e cattolica (dal poema Judit del Du Bartas fino all’Holoferne. Tragédie sacrée extraite de l’histoire de Iudith dell’ecclesiastico Adrien d’Amboise, infine si analizza il rapporto fra parola e immagine all’interno della tragedia Iudit redatta dall’astigiano Della Valle, ove la nascita del desiderio (in Oloferne coincide con la descrizione di una vestizione mulìebre rimasta celeberrima. La purezza, la fede senza titubanze, l’incontaminata virtù della vedova biblica saranno riprese, all’inizio del Settecento, dalla Betulia liberata di Metastasio, capace di creare un nuovo modello di eroina, che tuttavia non avrà eredi. Nei secoli della modernità, infatti, l’immagine di Giuditta si ergerà ad icona potente di femminilità castratrice e sarà quindi destinata a confondersi con il mito di Salomé, anche grazie a celebri interpretazioni freudiane a noi più vicine. 

  1. The Body in Discord: Judith Butler and the Reactivation of the Dialectic of Master

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    María Luciana Cadahia

    2017-07-01

    Full Text Available In this article I propose to study the interpretation of Butler around dialectics between master and slave. I recognize two original points in her research: the place of the body in Hegel’s philosophy and the role of the unfortunate consciousness. On the other hand, I would like to criticize the link that Butler proposes between the structure of subjection in Hegel and the notion of subjection in Foucault’s writings. I will take distance from Butler’s interpretation, since I prefer to explore a different relationship between both thinkers. Finally, I incorporate the works of Malabou, when she discusses with Butler about the place of the body in Hegel’s philosophy.

    Several grades of American and Russian beryllium have been tested in high heat flux tests by means of an electron beam facility. For safety reasons, major modifications of the facility had to be fulfilled in advance to the tests. The influence of energy densities has been investigated in the range between 1 and 7 MJ/m{sup 2}. In addition the influence of an increasing number of shots at constant energy density has been studied. For all samples, surface profiles have been measured before and after the experiments. Additional information has been gained from scanning electron microscopy, and from metallography.

    Full Text Available Intersexuality is considered a critical, subversive and deconstructive tool for the categories of sex and gender, in particular from social constructivist theoretical positions well nurtured by post-estructuralist rethoric. The purpose of this article is to discuss the reception of Foucault’s thought in studies on Intersexuality, explain his concepts and how they are incorporated, and which ideas they contribute to destabilizing or reifying within the current debates.

    La Intersexualidad es considerada una herramienta de crítica, subversión y deconstrucción de las categorías sexo y género, singularmente desde posiciones ligadas al constructivismo social y muy nutridas por las retóricas postestructuralistas. La propuesta de este artículo es la de discutir la recepción del pensamiento de Michel Foucault en los estudios sobre la Intersexualidad, y explicar qué conceptos y cómo se incorporan, y qué ideas contribuyen a desestabilizar o reificar dentro de estos debates.

    An underground repository containing heat generating, High Level Waste or Spent Unreprocessed Fuel may be approximated as a finite number of heat sources distributed across the plane of the repository. The resulting temperature, displacement and stress changes may be calculated using analytical solutions, providing linear thermoelasticity is assumed. This report documents a computer program based on this approach and gives results that form the basis for a comparison between the effects of disposing of High Level Waste and Spent Unreprocessed Fuel.

    论文着重批判性地讨论朱迪斯·巴特勒的(跨)性别/酷儿表演性和她在性别三部曲《性别麻烦》《身体之重——论性别的话语界限》及《消解性别》中关于表演性颠覆的理论建构。在第一部分,论文从五个方面深入解读巴特勒的性别表演性理论对奥斯汀言语行为理论的借鉴和改进:一、将言语事件延伸到性别构成;二、视陈述性言语为行为性言语;三、把表演者对权威/习俗的执行修改为对法律/常规的引用;四、认为行为性言语是不断重复、再叙述的动态过程;五、着重"受挫的"言语行为以及颠覆常规的潜质。第二部分重在讨论巴特勒提出的性别表演理论,尤其是性别表演性从内部颠覆性别常规的局限。文章重点探讨性别表演理论几个比较突出的问题:巴特勒将后结构主义方法嫁接到言语行为的可行性问题;表演性的(跨)性别/酷儿转向问题;内部颠覆作为消解性别麻烦的最终策略问题;以及对颠覆本身的酷儿化问题,即引用易装和酷儿作为表演颠覆的原型问题。

    表演性理论可以追溯到奥斯汀以讨论施事行为为核心的言语行为理论,而德里达以"引用性"和"重复性"等概念为主的解构批评为表演性奠定了理论基础.真正使得表演性成为人文社会科学流行话语的,是朱迪斯·巴特勒和她的性别研究.一方面,施事行为和表演性的论述,尤其是德里达的有关观点,是巴特勒的思想资源和理论源泉;另一方面,巴特勒第一次以身体、性别为基础建构了一种新的表演性理论体系.这一理论对后女性主义、酷儿研究、表演研究、文化和政治批评等产生了深刻影响,但是也遭到了一些批评.

    "Organized human endeavor can be lifted an order of magnitude through teaching if it is inspiring" (Editor, Am J Dis Child, 1972). The benevolent influence of Dr. Judy Hall's inspiring clinical teaching in the field of genetic syndromes and birth defects is illustrated through the eventual surgical remediation of conductive hearing loss for a 4-year-old girl with unusual knuckles. The fascinating history of this child's syndrome has been further explored in the descendents of the first Earl of Shrewsbury. The legends of his story and his role in the Hundred Years War were immortalized by William Shakespeare in his play Henry VI Part I, but neither Shakespeare nor historians documented that the Earl actually had abnormal finger joints. Heterozygous mutations in the human noggin gene (NOG) cause a spectrum of joint fusions, including this child's traits. On behalf of practitioners of medicine, pediatrics, clinical genetics, and dysmorphology, as well as research scientists in the many domains of genetics, thank you, Judy, for your inspiration, enthusiasm, and teaching.

    Utilizing three classic films, and psychoanalytic developmental theory, this paper explores the conscious and unconscious reasons why older women become sexually involved with teenage boys. After a presentation of aspects of young adult and midlife female development and a psychodynamic explanation for the developmental similarities between adolescence and menopause, each of the three films is summarized. The dynamics behind the women's behavior, as presented in the films, are discussed. The third section of the paper discusses similarities and differences among the three women and the negative effects on the boys' development.

    Full Text Available This paper examines the history and development of books about islands in Western culture. Islands are prominent in Homer’s Odyssey, and Plato’s island of Atlantis is perhaps the most famous mythical island of all time. The Greeks were the first to develop the island-book as such, but Roman writers showed much less interest in insular themes. The article traces the history of the immrama (medieval Irish accounts of mythical Atlantic island voyages, notes the importance of islands in Marco Polo and John of Mandeville, describes the rise of the isolario, or island-book illustrated with maps, and concludes with the emergence of the Robinsonade.

    Full Text Available Körperlichkeit und Geschlechterrollen sind jene Themen, die im öffentlichen Diskurs um Religion, vor allem um die drei monotheistischen Religionen, am meisten kontrovers diskutiert werden. Wie sehr der weibliche Körper in der Auseinandersetzung mit Fragen von Macht und Amt, ‚Reinheit‘ und ‚Unreinheit‘, aber auch für das Gottesbild und das Sprechen über Gott eine Rolle spielt, zeigt der vorgestellte Sammelband. Die Autorinnen sind Angehörige des Judentums, Christentums und Islams und geben zu den genannten Themen ihre Perspektive wieder, gehen aber auch auf die jeweils anderen Blickwinkel ein, so dass sich ein überraschend vielschichtiges Bild ergibt. Das Buch stellt einen hochinteressanten Beitrag zur aktuellen Debatte um Religion, Geschlecht und Gesellschaft dar.Corporeality and gender roles are those themes that are most controversial in public discourse on religion, especially in the three monotheistic religions. The collected volume introduced here shows how the female body plays an extensive role in the discussion over questions of power and office, “purity” and “impurity,” but also on the image of God and talking about God. The authors each practice Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and express their individual perspectives on the themes mentioned. They each also respond to the other perspectives. The result is a surprisingly multilayered image. The book represents a very interesting contribution to the current debate on religion, gender, and society.

    朱迪斯·巴特勒的后女性主义理论从质疑和重写以波伏瓦为代表的女性主义理论入手,在消解了生理性别与社会性别的差异性后指出,历来的社会性别都是基于生理性别而建构的,这就道破了男尊女卑之性别秩序的内在机制.巴特勒通过她的性别述行理论揭示了生理性别与社会性别的一致性和建构性,在她看来,宣称性与性别是述行性的,也就是宣称身体从来不是仅仅被陈述或被描述的,而是在描述的过程中被建构的.这就彻底打破了性与性别的稳定性,从而为女性主义理论的发展开启了新的路径.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2009-03-01

    Full Text Available Ceriops tagal is a seaward and high salt-tolerant specialist mangrove species. It flowers during the winter season. The flowers have an explosive pollen release mechanism and are adapted for tripping by flies and honey bees. The tripped flowers achieve self or cross-pollination. High winds can also trip flowers, but this only contributes to autogamy. The plant is viviparous; most propagules fall off and settle near the mother plant. We have observed that such propagules do not show healthy growth, hence the establishment of successive offspring in the same habitat is doubtful. These results suggest that C. tagal requires introduction of propagules from other mangrove forests to promote gene flow and maintain sufficient genetic diversity for the successful establishment and expansion of populations.

    Oceanic archipelagoes, by their young origin and isolation, provide privileged settings to study the origin and diversification of species. Here, we study the anyphaenid spider genus Philisca, endemic to the Valdivian temperate rainforest, which includes species living both on the mainland as well as on the Robison Crusoe Island in the Juan Fernández archipelago. Anyphaenids, as many spiders, are potentially good colonizers due their ability for ballooning, an airborne dispersal mediated by strands of silk that are caught in the wind. We use a molecular approach to estimate both the phylogenetic relationships and the timeframe of species diversification of Philisca, with the aim to infer its evolutionary history. We further estimate the rates of speciation on both the insular and continental Philisca species and score the microhabitat used by each species and their sizes as a proxy to evaluate ecological niche diversification within the island. Most analyses support the monophyly of Philisca, with the exclusion of Philisca tripunctata. Our results reveal colonization from a single lineage that postdated the origin of the island, followed by rapid (∼2Ma) diversification. The ancestral microhabitat was most likely leaf-dwelling but we identify two independent microhabitat shifts. Our data provides evidence that Philisca has undergone an adaptive radiation on the Robison Crusoe Island. Copyright © 2016 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    在文化研究的大语境之下,性别研究近十多年来也有了长足的发展,它是传统的女权/性主义的自然延申和在后结构主义时代的最新发展.在性别研究的各种理论中,巴特勒的理论无疑有着最大的影响.经过中国学界的译介,巴特勒的理论在中国也得到一批青年女性研究者的追捧.我们究竟应该如何看待这种现象?作者认为,中国当代社会确实出现了一些令人难以解释的社会和文化现象,这在传统的理论那里是难以解释的,而用巴特勒的理论则至少可以对此加以解释.但另一方面,作者也提请国内学界注意,即使在西方学界,巴特勒的理论也是备受争议的,因此运用于中国社会文化现象的解释必须首先将其“语境化”,并对之进行改造和重构,这样才能达到理论的双向旅行.

    “自我”与“他者”之间的关系是文化身份研究的重要问题之一,也是美国学者朱迪斯·巴特勒身份研究的重要问题.早年巴特勒提出消解身份的激进主张,但近几年日益寻求身份团结,转而结合犹太传统和福柯伦理思想来修正个人主义.巴特勒的新身份主张视“自我”与“他人”为主体间性结构,在这种结构中,各个主体间既有温暖关系又难以避免相互伤害.巴特勒主张当伤害发生时,应当避免以暴制暴,而当视为与他人相遇的特殊机会,重构“人”的身份.

    Full Text Available In der Veröffentlichung ihrer Habilitationsschrift geht Gaja von Sychowski das Vorhaben an, eine Allgemeine Pädagogik im Kontext poststrukturalistischen Denkens zu entwerfen. Damit greift sie nicht nur ein längst überfälliges Thema auf, es gelingt ihr zudem, dieses auf höchstem theoretischem Niveau zu bearbeiten. Die formalistische Konsequenz, mit der die Autorin ihre Forschung vorantreibt, ist dabei jedoch zwiespältig: Zwar schlägt sie durch die Reduzierung von Komplexität Brücken zwischen verschiedenen Disziplinen, andererseits verliert Geschlecht, wenn es schließlich unter Performanz subsumiert wird, an Bedeutung, und es entsteht so der Grundriss einer Allgemeinen Pädagogik, in welcher die subjektkonstituierende Macht von Geschlecht unterschlagen wird.In the publication of her professorial dissertation, Gaja von Sychowski intends to design a general pedagogy within the context of poststructuralist thinking. In doing so, she not only addresses a long overdue topic, but she also succeeds in elaborating it on a most abstract level. However, the formalistic consistency that the author uses to advance her research is ambivalent: on the one hand, the reduction of complexity bridges gaps between different disciplines, on the other hand, gender loses meaning if it is eventually subsumed under performance. Consequently, an outline of a general pedagogy, which omits the subject-constituting power of gender, emerges.

    琼·罗宾逊作为“最著名的经济学家中唯一的女性”,在经济思想史上占有重要地位.她生性刚毅不阿且略带叛逆,其经济理论既有对新古典经济学的质疑和补充,也有对凯恩斯经济学的拓展和完善,更有在著名“剑桥资本争论”中发起的对主流经济学的严厉批判.在与美国凯恩斯主义者的长期论战中,罗宾逊与剑桥同事们精心构建了其包含价值理论、分配理论和增长理论在内的经济理论,以及从道德和意识形态视角要求回到古典与真正凯恩斯的经济哲学.面对当今世界欧美发达国家普遍遭遇次贷危机和欧债危机等系列危机的客观现实,主流经济学的解释并不能令人满意.这促使我们在当前经济危机的深刻背景下重新思考经济学的理论发展与革新理念,并在这种理论反思中重拾“琼·罗宾逊的遗产”,力图使今天的经济学研究能够在批判与回归中走向成熟并真正成为一门“富有道德与良心的学问”.

    2015-01-01

    新寓言派作家米歇尔·图尔尼埃以18世纪英国作家笛福的《鲁滨逊漂流记》为蓝本创作出了另一部荒岛小说《礼拜五》.该小说不论是在情节安排、人物设置还是在写作形式上都与前者存在着明显的互文关系.但图尔尼埃并不局限在笛福所设定的模式中,而是利用小说不同的时代背景反其道而行,从而使作品完成了在主题、表现手法等方面对前者的超越.

    2010-01-01

    笛福的和梭罗的这两本著作的出版时间相隔一个多世纪,但它们在一定程度上有相似之处.两者都采用日记或回忆录的形式,让主人公叙述自己的所为所见所闻所感,且都把他们放在一个极不平常的生存环境,以简单朴素、自给自足的生活方式体现他们的独立奋斗精神,同时展现他们对精神的探索.

    西方文学神话框架的核心是.弗莱对有着独特的文学理解,他在狭义和广义的圣经文学下,开出一个新的研究方向--圣经与文学.对比弗莱的"U型结构"理论与,可以看出,具有典型的宗教结构形式:它通过阐释鲁滨逊的精神超越过程,探讨了西方圣经文学的精神主脉,是西方文学发展进程中的一次精神突围.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    段汉武

    2006-01-01

    文章运用了文化分析和文本分析相结合的方法,对和中女性缺席的现象进行了新的解读和评析,认为作品中女性的缺席不仅体现着笛福和戈尔丁不同的女性观,而且体现了孤岛文学特征,深化了主题意义,使人物形象得到了更为生动的塑造,并构成了其独具特色的叙述艺术.

  20. From Gender Performativity to Cultural Critique: Towards an Understanding of Judith Butler's Political-Ethical Theory%从性别表演到文化批判:论朱迪斯·巴特勒的政治伦理批评

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    王楠

    2015-01-01

    20世纪最后10年,朱迪斯·巴特勒对性别“自然性”的质疑之辩改变了我们思考性别、普适伦理和言语行为的方式.文章以巴特勒的后结构主义女性主义理论为基点,侧重考察性别表演理论之后,她在性别与伦理、伦理与政治之间所进行的理论介入与文化批判的努力.笔者认为,巴特勒质疑女性主义、重构主体的再生产意义和建构美国犹太文化“它者”生存策略是对美国女性主义政治的伦理式演进.尽管巴特勒在世纪之交倡导回归伦理,但她希望保持“伦理两难”的思考状态,让阅读生发更多的问题而非提供思考的结果.她的思考照见了西方人文主义研究中关于人学的一个盲点——人的脆弱性,这或许也是巴特勒无法回避的“伦理两难”的境遇.

  1. From Gender Studies to Solicitude for "the Other":A Research on the Transformation of Judith Butler' s Post-feminism Theory%从诘问身份到关注“他者”——朱迪斯·巴特勒后女性主义理论转向研究

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    蒋萧

    2016-01-01

    以朱迪斯·巴特勒代表性的专著《性别的麻烦》《至关重要的身体》《消解性别》和《安提戈涅的声明》为研究对象,本研究关注她的后女性主义理论的发展轨迹,尤其是后期理论从性别身份问题向社会伦理学的转向和迁移.从“性别三部曲”到《安提戈涅的声明》,巴特勒开始从对性与性别的集中探讨扩展到对身处政治困境的“他者”的人文主义关怀,从单一的主体性别身份的解构延伸到对“他者”的生存策略的建构.

    Full Text Available Este artigo identifica as questões preliminares da pesquisa de mestrado em andamento sobre as políticas educacionais de alfabetização para jovens, adultos e idosos no Brasil e na Venezuela. A educação comparada tem um caráter avaliativo e prospectivo, pois possibilita analisar os impactos das políticas educacionais e identificar soluções para os problemas de cada país, contribuindo para o planejamento da educação. O analfabetismo, ainda hoje é um grave problema social, atinge a maioria dos países e isto não tem sido diferente na América Latina, esse problema tem se mostrado de forma perversa junto à população excluída socialmente da garantia dos seus direitos, assim a alfabetização pode abrir portas que possibilite a melhora de vida, de saúde e oportunidades de crescimento intelectual e profissional do indivíduo no exercício da cidadania e no cumprimento da justiça social. O Brasil conta atualmente com 14 milhões de analfabetos e não deve diminuir de forma relevante este número até 2015, ano previsto para a redução da metade do percentual de analfabetos. A Venezuela foi declarada em 2005, território livre do analfabetismo tendo adotado o método cubano “Yo sí puedo”, através de um programa organizado em “missões”. Diante do exposto, este artigo tem como objeto de investigação um estudo comparado das políticas educacionais de alfabetização para jovens, adultos e idosos analfabetos no Brasil e na Venezuela entre os anos de 2003 a 2008, durante os governos Lula e Chávez. Tal investigação tem como objetivo geral comparar a implementação e os impactos das políticas educacionais de alfabetização por meio de análise documental e bibliográfica apontando as políticas adotadas pelos dois países, a fim de mapear semelhanças e diferenças que possam interferir nos resultados obtidos. A comparação torna-se um bom instrumento para conhecer melhor o próprio sistema educacional. Dessa forma, estudos comparados em educação ajudam a revelar os problemas da escola e da educação como um todo em uma determinada sociedade a partir do olhar de fora e podem vir a contribuir na formulação de políticas para a erradicação ou diminuição das altas taxas de analfabetismo

    Chemotherapy-resistant urothelial carcinoma has no uniformly curative therapy. Understanding how selective pressure from chemotherapy directs the evolution of urothelial carcinoma and shapes its clonal architecture is a central biological question with clinical implications. To address this question, we performed whole-exome sequencing and clonality analysis of 72 urothelial carcinoma samples, including 16 matched sets of primary and advanced tumors prospectively collected before and after chemotherapy. Our analysis provided several insights that are as follows: (1) chemotherapy-treated urothelial carcinoma is characterized by intrapatient mutational heterogeneity, and most mutations are not shared; (2) both branching evolution and metastatic spread are very early events in the natural history of urothelial carcinoma; (3) chemotherapy-treated urothelial carcinoma is enriched with clonal mutations involving L1 cell-adhesion molecule and integrin signaling pathways; and (4) APOBEC-induced mutagenesis is clonally enriched in chemotherapy-treated urothelial carcinoma and continues to shape the evolution of urothelial carcinoma throughout its lifetime.

  16. Leibniz's Infinitesimals: Their Fictionality, Their Modern Implementations, And Their Foes From Berkeley To Russell And Beyond

    CERN Document Server

    Katz, Mikhail G; 10.1007/s10670-012-9370-y

    2012-01-01

    Many historians of the calculus deny significant continuity between infinitesimal calculus of the 17th century and 20th century developments such as Robinson's theory. Robinson's hyperreals, while providing a consistent theory of infinitesimals, require the resources of modern logic; thus many commentators are comfortable denying a historical continuity. A notable exception is Robinson himself, whose identification with the Leibnizian tradition inspired Lakatos, Laugwitz, and others to consider the history of the infinitesimal in a more favorable light. Inspite of his Leibnizian sympathies, Robinson regards Berkeley's criticisms of the infinitesimal calculus as aptly demonstrating the inconsistency of reasoning with historical infinitesimal magnitudes. We argue that Robinson, among others, overestimates the force of Berkeley's criticisms, by underestimating the mathematical and philosophical resources available to Leibniz. Leibniz's infinitesimals are fictions, not logical fictions, as Ishiguro proposed, but ...

    Full Text Available What has been undertaken in the present study is the exploration of Caryl Churchill’s selected drama Cloud Nine(1978 with an eye to Judith Butler’s theorizations in regard to “gender performativity”.  According to Judith Butler, gender identity is a socio-political construction that achieves legitimacy and naturality via perpetual observation, repetition and “a stylized repetition of acts”. This stylized repetition of acts along with continuous surveillance, observation and correction leads to the construction of gender identity. In Cloud Nine (1978,we witness how Caryl Churchill(1938- , who occupies a lofty position in the world of theater due to her theatrical expertise, realizes Butler’s conviction and vividly portrays the stylization of gender identity under the sovereignty and hegemony of  phallocentrism and heterosexuality.

Analysis of the results has revealed beryllium thermo conductivity degradation under action of repetitive pulsed heat load due to accumulation of the cracks in the surface layer. Thermo conductivity degradation is found to be at least 4 times after 100 pulses in JUDITH 1 facility. An analytical model for the Be cracking threshold under action of arbitrary heat pulses has been developed.
