    2017-01-13

    2, 3-Di-ω-halo- as well as 2, 3-di-ω-toluenesulfonamide-alkylated glucopyranoside derivatives were prepared. Their condensation with α,ω-bis-toluenesulfonamide components under varying Richman-Atkins conditions with alkali carbonate in DMF led to carbohydrate-linked aza-macrocycles displaying 14-, 17-, 18-, 21-, 24-, and 25-membered ring structures. Isomeric aza-macrocylic coronands of 20- as well as 30-membered ring size containing two saccharides could be obtained employing Richman-Atkins condensations of two functionalized sugar building units.

Most importantly, I will highlight some areas ripe for collaboration between Python and Julia developers in astronomy.

  7. On the Shock-Response-Spectrum Recursive Algorithm of Kelly and Richman

    Science.gov (United States)

    Martin, Justin N.; Sinclair, Andrew J.; Foster, Winfred A.

    2010-01-01

    The monograph Principles and Techniques of Shock Data Analysis written by Kelly and Richman in 1969 has become a seminal reference on the shock response spectrum (SRS) [1]. Because of its clear physical descriptions and mathematical presentation of the SRS, it has been cited in multiple handbooks on the subject [2, 3] and research articles [4 10]. Because of continued interest, two additional versions of the monograph have been published: a second edition by Scavuzzo and Pusey in 1996 [11] and a reprint of the original edition in 2008 [12]. The main purpose of this note is to correct several typographical errors in the manuscript's presentation of a recursive algorithm for SRS calculations. These errors are consistent across all three editions of the monograph. The secondary purpose of this note is to present a Matlab implementation of the corrected algorithm.

  11. Wave equation modelling using Julia programming language

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kim, Ahreum; Ryu, Donghyun; Ha, Wansoo

    2016-04-01

    Julia is a young high-performance dynamic programming language for scientific computations. It provides an extensive mathematical function library, a clean syntax and its own parallel execution model. We developed 2d wave equation modeling programs using Julia and C programming languages and compared their performance. We used the same modeling algorithm for the two modeling programs. We used Julia version 0.3.9 in this comparison. We declared data type of function arguments and used inbounds macro in the Julia program. Numerical results showed that the C programs compiled with Intel and GNU compilers were faster than Julia program, about 18% and 7%, respectively. Taking the simplicity of dynamic programming language into consideration, Julia can be a novel alternative of existing statically typed programming languages.

    We prove that for any finite collection of quadratic Julia sets, a polynomial and a transcendental entire function exist whose Julia sets include copies of the given quadratic Julia sets. In order to prove the result, we construct quasiregular maps with required dynamics and employ the quasiconformal surgery to obtain the desired functions.

    We prove that wandering components of the Julia set of a polynomial are singletons provided each critical point in a wandering Julia component is non-recurrent. This means a conjecture of Branner-Hubbard is true for this kind of polynomials.

  14. The Nullness Analyser of julia

    Science.gov (United States)

    Spoto, Fausto

    This experimental paper describes the implementation and evaluation of a static nullness analyser for single-threaded Java and Java bytecode programs, built inside the julia tool. Nullness analysis determines, at compile-time, those program points where the null value might be dereferenced, leading to a run-time exception. In order to improve the quality of software, it is important to prove that such situation does not occur. Our analyser is based on a denotational abstract interpretation of Java bytecode through Boolean logical formulas, strengthened with a set of denotational and constraint-based supporting analyses for locally non-null fields and full arrays and collections. The complete integration of all such analyses results in a correct system of very high precision whose time of analysis remains in the order of minutes, as we show with some examples of analysis of large software.

    Full Text Available In her recent writings on the powers and limits of psychoanalysis, Julia Kristeva develops a theory of power and subjectivity that engages implicitly, if not explicitly, with biopolitical themes. Exploring these engagements, this paper draws on Kristeva to discuss the mute symptoms of homo sacer and the regulatory power of the spectacle. Staging an uncommon (and sometimes antagonistic conversation between Kristeva, Agamben, and Foucault, I construct a field of inquiry that I term the “psychic life of biopolitics.”

  7. Elliptic Functions with Disconnected Julia Sets

    In this paper, we investigate elliptic functions of the form fΛ = 1/(1 + (℘Λ)2), where ℘Λ is the Weierstrass elliptic function on a real rhombic lattice. We show that a typical function in this family has a superattracting fixed point at the origin and five other equivalence classes of critical points. We investigate conditions on the lattice which guarantee that fΛ has a double toral band, and we show that this family contains the first known examples of elliptic functions for which the Julia set is disconnected but not Cantor.

    We investigate the set of biaccessible points for connected polynomial Julia sets of arbitrary degrees $d\\geq 2$. We prove that the Hausdorff dimension of the set of external angles corresponding to biaccessible points is less than 1, unless the Julia set is an interval. This strengthens theorems of Stanislav Smirnov and Anna Zdunik: they proved that the same set of external angles has zero 1-dimensional measure.

  13. An image encryption algorithm utilizing julia sets and hilbert curves.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sun, Yuanyuan; Chen, Lina; Xu, Rudan; Kong, Ruiqing

    2014-01-01

    Image encryption is an important and effective technique to protect image security. In this paper, a novel image encryption algorithm combining Julia sets and Hilbert curves is proposed. The algorithm utilizes Julia sets' parameters to generate a random sequence as the initial keys and gets the final encryption keys by scrambling the initial keys through the Hilbert curve. The final cipher image is obtained by modulo arithmetic and diffuse operation. In this method, it needs only a few parameters for the key generation, which greatly reduces the storage space. Moreover, because of the Julia sets' properties, such as infiniteness and chaotic characteristics, the keys have high sensitivity even to a tiny perturbation. The experimental results indicate that the algorithm has large key space, good statistical property, high sensitivity for the keys, and effective resistance to the chosen-plaintext attack.

    We show that, if the Julia set of a transcendental entire function is locally connected, then it takes the form of a spider's web in the sense defined by Rippon and Stallard. In the opposite direction, we prove that a spider's web Julia set is always locally connected at a dense subset of buried points. We also show that the set of buried points (the residual Julia set) can be a spider's web.

  2. Fractais: Conjuntos de Julia e Conjuntos de Mandelbrot

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Aldicio J Miranda

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available Os fractais foram nomeados no início dos anos $80$ por B. Mandelbrot, para classificar certos objetos que não possuem dimensão inteira $(1, 2, ...$ mas sim fracionária, ou seja, figuras fractais são muito irregulares para serem descritas na tradicional linguagem da geometria Euclidiana. Diferentes definições de fractais surgiram com o aprimoramento de sua teoria. Sem rigor matemático pode-se definir fractais como objetos que apresentam auto-semelhança, ou seja, um fractal é um objeto cuja geometria se repete infinitamente em porções menores, semelhantes ao próprio objeto. Existem diversos tipos de fractais, mas apresentaremos as figuras geradas a partir de iterações de funções. Porém para chegar às figuras fractais, precisaremos falar em iterações de funções complexas, que associam a um ponto complexo $a+bi$ uma imagem complexa $f(a+bi = c+di$. O conjunto de Julia é conhecido como o conjunto que separa o plano complexo em dois conjuntos, o primeiro formado pelos pontos cujas órbitas tendem a origem e o segundo formado pelos pontos cujas órbitas tendem ao ponto no infinito. Os pontos do conjunto de Mandelbrot nos fornecem conjuntos de Julia conexos e os pontos que não estão no conjunto de Mandelbrot correspondem a conjuntos de Julia desconexos. Conjuntos de Julia e de Mandelbrot são de geometria fractal e neste artigo são discutidos a dinâmica da função quadrática complexa $f(z=z^2+c$}.

    This book is mainly devoted to the combinatorics of quadratic holomorphic dynamics. The conceptual kernel is a self-contained abstract counterpart of connected quadratic Julia sets which is built on Thurston's concept of a quadratic invariant lamination and on symbolic descriptions of the angle-doubling map. The theory obtained is illustrated in the complex plane. It is used to give rigorous proofs of some well-known and some partially new statements on the structure of the Mandelbrot set. The text is intended for graduate students and researchers. Some elementary knowledge in topology and in functions of one complex variable is assumed.

  9. Generalization of 3D Mandelbrot and Julia sets

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    CHENG Jin; TAN Jian-rong

    2007-01-01

    In order to further enrich the form of 3D Mandelbrot and Julia sets, this paper first presents two methods of generating3D fractal sets by utilizing discrete modifications of the standard quaternion algebra and analyzes the limitations in them. To overcome these limitations, a novel method for generating 3D fractal sets based on a 3D number system named ternary algebra is proposed. Both theoretical analyses and experimental results demonstrate that the ternary-algebra-based method is superior to any one of the quad-algebra-based methods, including the first two methods presented in this paper, because it is more intuitive, less time consuming and can completely control the geometric structure of the resulting sets. A ray-casting algorithm based on period checking is developed with the goal of obtaining high-quality fractal images and is used to render all the fractal sets generated in our experiments. It is hoped that the investigations conducted in this paper would result in new perspectives for the generalization of3D Mandelbrot and Julia sets and for the generation of other deterministic 3D fractals as well.

  12. Julia Rush's diary: coping with loss in the early nineteenth century.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Thielman, S B; Melges, F T

    1986-09-01

    Julia Rush (1759-1848), wife of Benjamin Rush (1745-1813), recorded her thoughts over a 33-year period in an unpublished devotional journal. Many of the entries relate to her experience of the loss of Benjamin Rush. Although the diary is inadequate as a source of understanding psychodynamic processes at work, it provides considerable information about Julia Rush's coping behavior. An analysis of this journal reveals that she used three major coping strategies to deal with the loss of her husband: ritualized language, time marking, and cognitive reframing. These devotional meditations also illuminate the way early nineteenth-century religious views shaped Julia Rush's response to loss.

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available A lo largo de toda la labor investigadora de esta autora existe un línea de conocimiento que arranca con sus trabajos en materia lingüística influenciados tanto por el círculo lingüístico de Praga que representa Benveniste en Francia quien aporta a la incipiente obra de Julia Kristeva el valor creador del nombre y del ser, como por los formalistas rusos entre los que se destaca a Bajtin y sus trabajos sobre la literatura que surge en el Renacimiento con el fin de enfrentarse al poder totalitario a través del dialoguismo que ofrecen los personajes novelescos, y en tercer lugar por el estructuralismo francés que rescata gracias al análisis textual de Barthes el saber y el placer del texto literario.Esta línea es continuada por la autora a través de su contacto con el psicoanálisis y la filosofía, resultando claves las aportaciones de Arendt quien destaca el valor de la acción y la producción en el seno de la actividad narrativa, Klein como psicoanalista que señala el mal del matricidio enraizado en nuestra cultura, y por último Sartre aunando ambas teorías a través de su propia obra teatral.Y basándose en estos planteamientos teóricos, Julia Kristeva ha ido a lo largo de su carrera analizando las obras literarias de autores destacados en la historia literatura tales como Baudelaire y sus flores del bien y del mal, Céline el cual odia al prójimo como a sí mismo, Aragon quien considera que la verdad se encuentra en lo olvido, Duras denunciado crímenes sin castigo y exigiendo al menos una justicia de sonrisas y lágrimas, Bataille rememorando a través de la escritura el placer que nos convierte en soberanos, y Proust el cual gracias a la narración recupera el amor perdido.

  4. A New Digital Signature Scheme Based on Mandelbrot and Julia Fractal Sets

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    M. A. Alia

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper describes a new cryptographic digital signature scheme based on Mandelbrot and Julia fractal sets. Having fractal based digital signature scheme is possible due to the strong connection between the Mandelbrot and Julia fractal sets. The link between the two fractal sets used for the conversion of the private key to the public key. Mandelbrot fractal function takes the chosen private key as the input parameter and generates the corresponding public-key. Julia fractal function then used to sign the message with receiver's public key and verify the received message based on the receiver's private key. The propose scheme was resistant against attacks, utilizes small key size and performs comparatively faster than the existing DSA, RSA digital signature scheme. Fractal digital signature scheme was an attractive alternative to the traditional number theory digital signature scheme.

  12. The causes of the Roman civil war, 49 B.C.: Julia and Crassus

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    A. P. Koval

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available The title of the article is ‘The Causes of the Roman Civil War, 49 B.C.: Julia and Crassus’. The purpose of the article was to examine the theory, provided by ancient writers, according to which deaths of Julia and Marcus Licinius Crassus are interpreted as one of the causes of the Roman Civil war in 49 B.C. This theory wasn’t an object of the special research and many modern scholars take on trust accounts of the ancient writers, following Mommsen’s view. According to the sources, Julia was the «pledge of consent» between Pompey and Caesar, while Crassus was their mediator. In contrast, E. Gruen believed, that the deaths of Julia and Crassus had not been so ruinous for relations of Pompey and Caesar. For example, Julia had died in 54 B.C., but the Civil war started in 49 B.C. – according to the sources, it should have been started immediately after Julia’s death. The study tested, that the main source of such interpretation of Julia’s and Crassus’ deaths was Lucan’s ‘Pharsalia’. Such characterization of those is the most full in his poem. Textual analysis proves, that Lucan’s poem was a source of this theory for many other ancient writers. For example, Plutarch’s and Appian’s characterizations of Julia and Crassus are the same, as in ‘Pharsalia’, considering the translation from Latin to Greek. Further examination established that Lucan was the main propagandist of such characterization, but he wasn’t its author. Julia was described as the «pledge of consent» in writings of Velleius Paterculus and Valerius Maximus that had been written in a few decades before ‘Pharsalia’. However, there is no such characterization in writings of Cicero and Livius, who were the eyewitnesses of the Civil war. As a result, it was concluded, that such characterization had been formed among Roman writers of the early principate and retailed by Lucan. As a conclusion it must be emphasized, that close study of the ancient

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2013-04-01

    Full Text Available In his work on Spiritualism, W. T. Stead wrote as both a commentator and a practitioner. In the same office, by the same hand, he penned editorial pieces for his occultist journal and engaged in spirit-writing. Stead claimed to serve as an amanuensis for the spirit of the late Julia Ames and printed her first-person accounts of the nature of life after death in the pages of 'Borderland.'   When he channelled Julia, Stead was following the current zeitgeist of modern Victorian occultism. In the previous half-century, spirit-writing had become firmly established as a key practice of Spiritualism.It was a literary tradition as well as a cultural one. Spirits who manifested through the written word propagated tropes and repeated narratives. One can trace common turns of phrase, philosophies, rhetorical tricks, shared metaphors, and myths of literary production across a broad range of channelled missives through different schools of occultist thought at the 'fin de siècle'. Stead was quick to internalize many of these, and ‘Julia’ was nothing if not solidly generic.   The literary nature of occultism both fuelled and thwarted Stead’s attempts to use the press to legitimize study of the ‘other world’. Stead envisioned 'Borderland' as an open court in which proofs of occultist phenomena could be publicized and judged on their own merits. Building on his wider ideas of the value of periodical literature as an open court (as expressed in his ‘Government by Journalism’, for example, Stead believed that a journal dedicated to collecting and assessing occultist claims would be the first step in a social mission to bridge the communication gap between the living and the dead, and to do so in a way which would render such links demotic and quotidian. Instead, the pages of 'Borderland' quickly filled with anecdotes and ghost stories. The magazine’s editorial authority could draw attention to the familiar tropes and recurring narratives of

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Sørensen, Dan Erik Krarup

    1997-01-01

    We present two strategies for producing and describing some connected non-locally connected Julia sets of infinitely renormalizable quadratic polynomials. The main idea is to obtain the polynomial as the limit of repeated parabolic perturbations of the satellite type. The basic tool at each step...... is to control the behaviour of certain external rays. We distinguish between perturbations to left and right satellites and investigate the differences between one-sided and two-sided (ie. alternating) parabolic perturbations. In the one-sided case, we prove the existence of polynomials having an explicitly...

    Full Text Available Julia Kristeva widmet sich im zweiten Teil ihrer Trilogie über das weibliche Genie dem Leben und Werk von Melanie Klein, die mit ihren Arbeiten über die früheste Verfasstheit des Psychischen das psychoanalytische Denken für die Psychosen und den Wahn aufschloss und die Rolle des Mütterlichen im psychoanalytischen Diskurs neu definierte. In ihrer Auseinandersetzung mit Klein gelingt Kristeva nicht nur eine ausgesprochen gelungene Einführung in Kleins Denken, sondern auch eine Analyse weiblicher Intellektualität im 20. Jahrhundert. Zudem werden die Schnittstellen im Denken Kleins und Kristevas sichtbar.Julia Kristeva devotes this second installment of her trilogy on feminine genius to the life and work of Melanie Klein. Klein’s work on the early state of the psyche opened psychoanalytical thinking to psychoses, delusion, and the redefined the role of the motherly in psychoanalytical discourse. In her discussion of Klein, Kristeva provides not only a markedly insightful introduction to Klein’s thinking, but also an analysis of female intellectuality in the 20th century. Moreover, the reader clearly sees the interconnections between Klein and Kristeva’s thinking.

  14. Morphology of the proboscis of Hubrechtella Juliae (Nemertea, Pilidiophora): implications for pilidiophoran monophyly.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Chernyshev, Alexey V; Magarlamov, Timur Yu; Turbeville, James M

    2013-12-01

    The proboscis of Hubrechtella juliae was examined using transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and confocal laser scanning microscopy to reveal more features of basal pilidiophoran nemerteans for morphological and phylogenetic analysis. The proboscis glandular epithelium consists of sensory cells and four types of gland cells (granular, bacillary, mucoid, and pseudocnidae-containing cells) that are not associated with any glandular systems; rod-shaped pseudocnidae are 15-25 μm in length; the central cilium of the sensory cells is enclosed by two rings of microvilli. The nervous plexus lies in the basal part of glandular epithelium and includes 26-33 (11-12 in juvenile) irregularly anastomosing nerve trunks. The proboscis musculature includes four layers: endothelial circular, inner diagonal, longitudinal, and outer diagonal; inner and outer diagonal muscles consist of noncrossing fibers; in juvenile specimen, the proboscis longitudinal musculature is divided into 7-8 bands. The endothelium consists of apically situated support cells with rudimentary cilia and subapical myocytes. Unique features of Hubrechtella's proboscis include: acentric filaments of the pseudocnidae; absence of tonofilament-containing support cells; two rings of microvilli around the central cilium of sensory cells; the occurrence of subendothelial diagonal muscles and the lack of an outer diagonal musculature (both states were known only in Baseodiscus species). The significance of these characters for nemertean taxonomy and phylogeny is discussed. The proboscis musculature in H. juliae and most heteronemerteans is bilaterally arranged, which can be considered a possible synapomorphy of Hubrechtellidae + Heteronemertea (= Pilidiophora).

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    B. van der Westhuizen

    2007-07-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of this article is firstly to distinguish between the notions “external locus of control” and “internal locus of control”, secondly to indicate ways in which the locus of control in humour in “The Gruffalo” by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler can be identified and thirdly to indicate possible ways in which emphasis on the internal locus of control in the young reader can assist him/her in the development of a general mental/- psychological well-being. Different kinds of literary humour contribute to the ways in which young listeners/readers can identify with stories, poems, dramas and films. The young listener/reader can recognise him/herself in humorous situations, in the humorous use of imagery, wordplay and illustrations/visuals. He/she can also identify with or distance him-/herself from or reject the characters, the values represented and the author who created the text. When in interaction with the works of authors who use negative as well as positive kinds of humour to point out the dos and don’ts, the rights and the wrongs in life, the horizon of a young listener’s/reader’s experience can be expanded. Such a reading would contribute to the development of the young reader’s cognitive, emotional, social and moral values as it links up with an unconscious or conscious decision about the locus of control in his/her life.

    2015-01-01

    In this paper, making use of the 't Hooft-Polyakov-Julia-Zee ansatz for the SU(2) Yang-Mills-Higgs gauge field theory, we present the straightforward generalization of the Bogomoln'yi equations and its several consequences. Particularly, this is shown that this idea is able to generate new types of non-abelian both dyons and magnetic monopoles and, moreover, that within the new model the scalar field can be described through the Coulomb potential, whereas, up to a constant, the non-abelian gauge field becomes the Wu-Yang monopole.

    Caravaca Guerrero, Consuelo Isabel

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available This work is aimed to do a synthesis of every primary source that speaks about Julia Domna – specially Dion Casio, Herodiano, Historia Augusta and Flavio Filostrato – as well as the main modern studies, with the objective of knowing the role and influence this woman might have exercised. Her role was not only based on the fact she was a midwife, but she also managed to be a wife and an emperor’s mother. Honoured with several adjectives such as Augusta, Pía, Felix or mater Augustorum and mater castrorum, her influence spread all over the Empire. Therefore, we are dealing with a figure that went out from the margins imposed to women by the Roman society.

    2010-10-01

    Full Text Available Cet article entend contribuer à la réflexion menée sur les phénomènes d’effacement énonciatif, en particulier dans le discours théorique. L’approche se veut inséparablement rhétorique et socio-historique et porte sur un corpus composé des principaux articles publiés par Julia Kristeva dans les années 1960. Ceux-ci sont contrastés avec des interventions ultérieures de la théoricienne, répondant à d’autres enjeux et stratégies. Les effets construits par l’effacement énonciatif sont envisagés comme des opérations sur la doxa, orientées par un contrat rhétorique. Cette notion, située à l’intersection du socio-historique et du discursif, se veut un outil complémentaire pour l’analyse de l’efficace des discours dans un état de société.This paper tackles the issue of enunciative effacement, particularly in theoretical discourse. The approach is both rhetorical and socio-historical, as it focuses on texts published by Julia Kristeva in the sixties and contrasts them with more recent Kristeva speeches, corresponding to other issues and strategies. The effects brought about by enunciative effacement are considered as operations on doxa, which are oriented by a rhetorical contract. This notion, both socio-historical and rhetorical, provides a tool for analyzing the efficiency of discourses in a given state of society.

  14. Seeking Byzantium on the Borders of Narration, Identity, Space and Time in Julia Kristeva's Novel Murder in Byzantium

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Helena Bodin

    2009-03-01

    Full Text Available This article discusses the notion of Byzantium and Byzantium's potential capacities as a multifaceted borderland, as shaped and perceived in Julia Kristeva's novel Murder in Byzantium. In spite of its title, this is not a historical, but rather a so-called total novel, which reconciles several different plots - romantic, criminal, political and philosophical. It relies on both fictive and historical texts, especially on The Alexiad, written in the 12th century by the Byzantine princess and the first female historian ever, Anna Comnena. Through a literary analysis, this article shows how Byzantium is shaped in the novel by transgressions of the borders of narration, identity, space and time. Byzantium is thus of great interest to the general public and an academic discussion of borders, origin, history and culture, so important for the discussion of Europe's role today in - or, as suggested in the novel, perhaps between - Eastern and Western cultures.

  18. The search for redemption: Julia Kristeva and Slavoj Žižek on Marx, psychoanalysis and religion

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Boer Roland

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available Slavoj Žižek and Julia Kristeva have followed strikingly similar paths in their intellectual and political development, moving from Marxism through psychoanalysis to Christianity. This article traces the way they have distanced themselves from Marxism and taken up psychoanalysis, of either the Freudian or Lacanian variety. For Kristeva, psychoanalysis provides the therapeutic solution to individual and at times social problems, whereas for Žižek it is the best description of those problems without necessarily providing answers. However, through psychoanalysis, they have gone a step further and become enamoured with Christianity, especially Paul’s letters in the New Testament and the doctrine of love. Paul provides for Kristeva another and earlier version of psychoanalytic solutions, but he enables Žižek to find the social and political answers for which he seeks. By connecting these intellectual moves with their own departures from Eastern Europe, one from Yugoslavia (and then Slovenia and the other from Bulgaria, I argue that their search for redemption, of both personal and social forms, betrays a residual socialism. In fact, their moves into psychoanalysis and Christianity may be read as compensations for a lost socialism, so much so that Žižek at least makes a belated recovery of Marx through Christianity and Kristeva can never quite excise Marx from her thought.

  19. Experiences of exclusion when living on a ventilator: reflections based on the application of Julia Kristeva's philosophy to caring science.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lindahl, Berit

    2011-01-01

    The research presented in this work represents reflections in the light of Julia Kristeva's philosophy concerning empirical data drawn from research describing the everyday life of people dependent on ventilators. It also presents a qualitative and narrative methodological approach from a person-centred perspective. Most research on home ventilator treatment is biomedical. There are a few published studies describing the situation of people living at home on a ventilator but no previous publications have used the thoughts in Kristeva's philosophy applied to this topic from a caring science perspective. The paper also addresses what a life at home on a ventilator may be like and will hopefully add some new aspects to the discussion of philosophical issues in nursing and the very essence of care. Kristeva's philosophy embraces phenomena such as language, abjection, body, and love, allowing her writings to make a fruitful contribution to nursing philosophy in that they strengthen, expand, and deepen a caring perspective. Moreover, her writings about revolt having the power to create hope add an interesting aspect to the work of earlier philosophers and nursing theorists. © 2010 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.

    Julia Ching is a brilliant, productive and outstanding Canadian- Chinese scholar, religion expert and philosopher. Julia Ching defined that religion is the belief in god and the efforts of self - transcendence, and she thought that Chinese religion has the characteristics of harmonicity, and it includes not only Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism, but also the crazy primitive religions. This pluralistic religious thought and multi - religious participation concept is beneficial to the self- development of religions, the resolution of the conflicts between world religions, and dialogue and integration of religions.%秦家懿是一位成就卓著的加拿大籍华裔学者、宗教学家和哲学家。她将宗教界定为对神的信仰和自我超越的努力,认为中国宗教不仅包括儒学,道教和佛教,还包括狂热的原始宗教,具有调和性的特点。这是一种多元主义宗教观和多种宗教参与观,对宗教的自我发展、化解世界宗教间冲突,以及促进彼此对话和融合是一种行之有效的方法。

    A highly modular approach to N-substituted 4-(1-fluorovinyl)triazoles is described. In situ desilylation and Cu-catalyzed ligation reaction of TMS-protected α-fluoropropargyl benzothiazole sulfone with aryl, alkyl, and metallocenyl azides furnished second-generation Julia-Kocienski reagents in good to excellent yields. Condensation reactions of these reagents with aldehydes can be tuned to yield E or Z-alkenes selectively. Under mild conditions with DBU as the base, reactions of aldehydes furnished E-alkenes as the major isomer. On the other hand, in condensation reactions with LHMDS as the base and in appropriate solvents, both aldehydes and ketones reacted to yield fluoroalkenes with Z-selectivity. Stereochemical assignment of E/Z olefins obtained in the reaction of a ketone with two Julia reagents was performed via X-ray crystallographic analysis and comparisons of NMR data. The method allows efficient and ready diversification of the N1-substituent and substituents at the double bond.

    Full Text Available This essay examines two novels by Dominican American author Julia Alvarez, How the García Girls Lost Their Accents and In the Time of the Butterflies. By undertaking a transnational feminist reading practice, the author explicates the novels’ critique of the political constructions of the Latin American Third World as “deprived” and “depraved.” Alvarez’s work traces how these representations have been constitutive of a North American liberal feminist imaginary, limiting its conception of the forms of feminist agency available to women in the Americas as well as the liberal social rebellion and “development” of the woman of color in the United States. Ultimately, the two novels uncover the imperial history between the United States and the Dominican Republic that (neoliberal linkages otherwise obscure.

    Full Text Available Drawing on Julia Kristeva's amorous dialogue with Therese in Therese, mon amour, her third volume on the powers and limits of psychoanalysis (La haine et le pardon, and Cet incroyable besoin de croire, my aim in this essay is to unpack Kristeva's theory of sublimation which, I suggest, Therese helps her elaborate, enrich and complicate. In particular, I focus on Kristeva's foregrounding of the mediating role of language in the sublimatory process and her rethinking of the experience and stakes of sublimation in light of what has been discussed as the central problematic of the baroque: namely, the blurring of the distinction between appearance and reality and the uninhibited celebration of illusion. As I demonstrate, this problematic and Therese's unique response to it are most important for Kristeva since they enable her to raise questions which carry her beyond her previous treatments of sublimation. These questions relate to the amorous source of the imaginary; the dynamic established between idealization and sublimation; the dangers of an unbridled imaginary; the uncomfortable residue of matter and the body; the dialectic between finitude and infinity, unity and multiplicity.

  9. The Affect of Dissident Language and Aesthetic Emancipation at the Margins: A Possible Dialogue between Theodor W. Adorno and Julia Kristeva

    Full Text Available In this paper I focus on the interaction between affect and language as articulated in the works of Theodor W. Adorno and Julia Kristeva, sometimes in inchoate and non-explicit ways. Language is always in transit, exile, and dispossession. All language is the language of another, or the other, and precisely because of this, it is the site of dissenting and conflicting affect. In this context, my paper traces a missed but necessary dialogue between Adorno and Kristeva. Adorno’s diagnosis of failed subjective inwardness, first presented in his book on Kierkegaard, was sustained throughout Adorno’s entire oeuvre, to the very end, in his posthumous 1969 Aesthetic Theory. I will explicate Adorno’s forced collapsing of subjective interiority into a negative space that opens up aesthetic emancipatory potential. In what follows I place Adorno’s negativity of subjective inwardness and the aesthetic potential after the fact of its destruction in dialogue with the writings of Kristeva, who has likewise diagnosed a subjective interiority of negativity but framed the latter in terms of the female, abjection and maternity. I conclude by placing Kristeva’s work in conversation with Adorno’s philosophy of the language of music, as one example of their shared framework for aesthetic emancipatory experience.

    Full Text Available The search for an ever-elusive home is a thread that runs throughout much literature by authorswho have immigrated to the United States. Dominican authors are particularly susceptible to thissearch for a home because “for many Dominicans, home is synonymous with political and/oreconomic repression and is all too often a point of departure on a journey of survival” (Bonilla200. This “journey of survival” is a direct reference to the dictatorship of Rafael Leonidas TrujilloMolina, who controlled the Dominican Republic from 1930-1961. The pain and trauma that Trujilloinflicted upon virtually everyone associated with the Dominican Republic during this era is stillheartbreakingly apparent, and perhaps nowhere is that trauma more thoroughly illustrated than inthe literature of Julia Alvarez. Alvarez is a prime example of an author who utilizes narrative in aclear attempt to come to grips with lingering traumatic memories. After her father’s role in anattempt to overthrow the dictator is revealed, Alvarez’s family is forced to flee the DominicanRepublic as political exiles, and a sense of displacement has haunted her since. Because boththe Dominican Republic and the United States are extraordinary racially charged, concepts ofhome and identity are inextricably bound to race relations in much of Alvarez’s art. Usingtheoretical concepts drawn from the fields of trauma studies and Black cultural studies, this essayexamines Alvarez’s debut novel in order to illustrate the myriad ways in which culture, politics,and race converge and speak through each other, largely in the form of traumas that canirreparably alter one’s sense of home, voice, and identity.

    Daniela Oulego

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available El propósito del presente artículo es abordar comparativamente el texto dramático La señorita Julia, escrito por el dramaturgo August Strindberg, con las versiones fílmicas dirigidas por los cineastas Alf Sjöberg y Liv Ullmann. Si bien la obra responde al naturalismo, consideramos que Strindberg debatió con el carácter determinista de la herencia. En este sentido, elementos de la mitología cristiana, como el festejo de la Noche de San Juan, y la presencia de lo dionisíaco formarán parte del análisis. Asimismo, las divisiones jerárquicas ancestrales entre los sexos, por un lado, y amos y esclavos, por otro, serán vinculadas con la religión desde una mirada crítica del cristianismo. En su película Sjöberg se distanció de Strindberg acentuando en el factor determinista al indagar en la prehistoria de los personajes mediante el recurso técnico del flashback y apelando a metáforas audiovisuales en consonancia con el cine sueco experimental de su tiempo. Del mismo modo, Liv Ullmann, continuó examinando la influencia del determinismo y profundizó la construcción de los personajes desde la animalización planteada por Sjöberg. Por último, las referencias metateatrales del texto original retomadas en esta transposición permitirán enriquecer el estudio interdisciplinario entre teatro y cine.

    In the frame of the international campaign to observe potential target asteroids for the Rosetta mission, remote observations have been carried out between Observatoire de Paris, in Meudon-France, and the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility on Mauna Kea. The SpeX instrument was used in the 0.8-2.5 microns spectral region, for two observing runs in March and June 2003. This paper presents near-IR spectra of the asteroids 21 Lutetia, 89 Julia, 140 Siwa, 2181 Fogelin, and 5480 (1989YK8). Near-IR spectra of the asteroids 21 Lutetia and 140 Siwa are flat and featureless. The spectrum of 89 Julia reveals absorption bands around 1 and 2 microns, which may indicate the presence of olivine and olivine-pyroxene mixtures and confirm the S-type designation. The small main-belt asteroids 2181 Fogelin and 5480 (1989YK8) are investigated spectroscopically for the first time. Near-IR spectra of these asteroids also show an absorption feature around 1 micron, which could be and indicator of igneous/metamorphic surface of the obj...

    Full Text Available Julia Álvarez (Dominican Republic, 1951 and her family left the Dominican Republic in 1960 to escape the persecution of Rafael Leónidas Trujillo’s dictatorship, which ruled the country with terror from 1930 to 1961. Her father had gotten involved with clandestine forces that attempted to overthrow the dictator. Precisely the opposition to Trujillo’s dictatorship constitutes the referent of her second novel, In the Time of the Butterflies (1994, which deals with the life of the four Mirabal sisters, Minerva, María Teresa (Mate, Patria, and Dedé. My article, using a theoritical framework based mostly in the works of Foucault, Hayden White and Linda Hutcheon poses that In the Time of the Butterflies revises the official history of the Mirabal sisters and their subsequent murder by providing a more humanized version of their own stories in order to divide the truth of the myth created about the three sisters. The novel shows their development as characters as we follow them in different stages of their lives while the shadow of dictator Trujillo’s looms large encompassing every aspect of their and everybody’s existence. Lastly, I argue that Julia Álvarez’s position of being born Dominican, but acculturated as an American, allows her to observe and present the text from a unique view and perspective. She travels to the places of the facts to research the sisters’ story and to get to know the archive that includes not only the official versions, but also the most credible mythicized oral accounts provided by Dedé, the Mirabals’ other relatives, neighbors and the like. The novel’s greatest merit derives from its attempt to revise history from memory, the collective memory whose voices Álvarez masterfully reproduces and therefore perpetuates in the pages of the book.

    Julia Kristeva′s Des Chinoises,as an important text in the history of Sino-French cultural ex-changes,presents complicated and pluralistic mind-sets.Firstly,Julia Kristeva tries to consolidate the lost sub-jectivity of western women through creating a bond between Chinese and western women.Secondly,the ambig-uous stance taken by Kristeva in the text stems directly from her attitude toward others,i.e.,the existence of others in ourselves.Thirdly,the individualized approach to reading and commenting on Chinese texts reveals that in the semantic field of the text,the personal discourse challenges and subverts the political discourse.In writing Chinese experience,her personal psychic experience takes over.Kristeva′s diverse individual identities have weakened the depiction of Chinese experience due to subjective presupposition,which,on the reverse, mirrors her own psychic experience as an individual.%克里斯蒂娃的《中国妇女》是中法文化交流史上重要的文本。克里斯蒂娃的这一中国书写呈现出一种复杂而多元的思想倾向。它的文本张力主要体现在:其一,试图通过与中国妇女建立一种联系,来巩固西方女性主体丧失的主体性;其二,在文本写作立场层面的含混态度,直接源于写作者自身对他者的立场,他者存在于自我之中;其三,以一种个人化的方式阅读和言说中国文本,具体表现为文本语义场内部个人私语对政治话语的挑战和颠覆。克里斯蒂娃在书写中国经验时,其本身的心灵经验占据主流。个体身份的多样性弱化了她对中国问题的主观预设,中国经验成为映照出克里斯蒂娃个体的心灵经验的反光镜。

    Government schools in Congo kinshasa are not providing quality education to the masses since many years, and this phenomenon has not escaped the eyes of experts, activists, and policy makers. However, there seems to be a general perception that the main, and sometimes even the sole, source of this problem are the low levels of government expenditure of education. And to prove their case supports of this view cite educational expenditure to GDP ratios in Congo kinshasa in comparison with that of some other nations. Though there may be reasonable arguments to increase the level of government expenditure on education, such hijacking of public debate to focus on - the level of expenditure - often overlooks more important issues. Contrary to common perception the level of per student expenditure on government schools in Delhi is reasonable, ranging from Fc.6000 to Fc.12000 p.a. There are a number of organisational deficiencies which do not create checks and balances for appropriate utilization of fund. Moreover, the division of these funds among social groups and for different purposes is also questionable. Though, female literacy lags significantly behind male literacy, about 15% points, extra resources provided for female education are insignificant. And in some schemes such as the one run for 'street children' and 'child labourers', large amounts are budgeted year after year without a single French congolese being spent. Also government schools catering to richer regions of Kinshasa seem to be spending more per child as compared to the poorer counterparts. The paper also proposes an education voucher model, which may have the potential to address some of the issues raised in the paper. Trends in expenditure under some schemes have been studied in relation to the purpose of expenditure. The issue of government expenditure on education is a complex one, and public space should be utilized to discuss them as they are, rather than reducing discussion to dogmatic wars

To learn from the western academic research situation, this paper intends to clarify domestic study’ s characteristics, advantages and limitations, explore the internal logic of development in this research, and evaluate gains and losses. The translation about Kristeva’ s gender poetics is relatively recent in China, so it is necessary to outline the developing research process from almost blank to initial stage in Chinese literary theory academics. Describing and reviewing the history features on the study of Kristeva’ s gender poetics in this period is of great significance in further reflection and promotion of the research on western literary theory in China.%摭取1980—2000年间国内克里斯特娃性别诗学研究的基本成果,经历时爬梳和共时比照,试图还原该时期(引介期与拓展期)克里斯特娃性别诗学研究的历史剖面。以西方学界的研究境况为鉴,澄明国内克里斯特娃性别诗学研究的特点、优长与局限,探求研究发展的内在逻辑,评骘得失。国内对克里斯特娃性别诗学的译介较为晚近,摹绘中国文艺理论批评界对其性别诗学研究从基本空白到微芒初露的发展过程,殊有必要。通过刻写、评述该时期克里斯特娃性别诗学研究的历史样态,对进一步反思和推进国内西方文论研究具有重要意义。

    Full Text Available This interview addresses the methodologies and research questions that underpin 'The Illustration Archive'. The archive, created on an AHRC-funded Big Data project, contains over a million searchable book illustrations from a period roughly spanning the eighteenth to the mid-twentieth century, and taken from works of geography, history, philosophy, literature, and science. The Twitter interview, which was supplemented by fuller responses to the questions, offers an insight into how digital archives are created and the problems involved with this creation, from issues of how to make images searchable to the ways in which this resultant searchability impacts on how they are viewed and analysed. The digital archive is a space where forgotten illustrations are made visible, but the terms of this visibility are far from neutral or straightforward.

    翻译作为一种跨文化交际活动,关注的中心不应只是对于原文的忠实,更应充分发挥译者的主观介入,照顾到读者的接受。从译者介入和读者接受的角度分析英国新生代汉学家蓝诗玲在翻译鲁迅作品(《阿 Q 正传及其它中国故事》)和《色·戒》时的指导思想以及所采用的翻译策略,试图找出当代中国文学作品外译的有效途径。%As an intercultural communication,translation should not only focus on its fidelity to the source text,but more on the reader′s response,on the basis of which the translator can make full play of his subjectivity.This pa-per tries to analyze from the perspective of translator′s involvement and reader′s reception the British Cenozoic si-nologist and translator Julia Lovell′s translation of LU Xun′s novel — The Real Story ofAh-Q and Other Tales of China and Lust,Caution — and her translation theory and strategy in dealing with the intercultural problems.In this way,the paper aims to make a glimpse of a more effective way of the introduction of Chinese novels and essays to the world.

    Education is a recurring theme of our 60th anniversary year, as I was reminded last week when we had a visit from the winners of the Spanish schools competition launched with the Prince of Asturias Award prize money (see here).   Young people are always remarkable in their curiosity and inventiveness, and this was very clear in all the submissions for the competition. I was most impressed with the six winners, but have to give a special mention to the youngest, Sofía Isabella Villamizar Villegas, who at just seven years of age made a lovely video explaining the Higgs mechanism by analogy to moving a balloon with and without static charge through a field of suspended strips of paper. It was not only charming, but also very effective as analogies go. The Spanish visit came in the middle of judging to find a winner of the Beamline for Schools competition, which closed at the end of March having received almost 300 proposals for experiments from schools all over the world. These vary ...

    @@ In England, many children go to nursery school from the age of about three, but these schools are not compulsory. Compulsory education begins at the age of five, when children go to primary school. Primary education takes six years, then pupils go to secondary education. After six years of secondary education, pupils take the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) examination. Most pupils take about eight subjects in this exam.

    Improving science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, especially for traditionally disadvantaged groups, is widely recognized as pivotal to the U.S.'s long-term economic growth and security. In this article, we review and discuss current research on STEM education in the U.S., drawing on recent research in sociology and related fields. The reviewed literature shows that different social factors affect the two major components of STEM education attainment: (1) attainment of education in general, and (2) attainment of STEM education relative to non-STEM education conditional on educational attainment. Cognitive and social psychological characteristics matter for both major components, as do structural influences at the neighborhood, school, and broader cultural levels. However, while commonly used measures of socioeconomic status (SES) predict the attainment of general education, social psychological factors are more important influences on participation and achievement in STEM versus non-STEM education. Domestically, disparities by family SES, race, and gender persist in STEM education. Internationally, American students lag behind those in some countries with less economic resources. Explanations for group disparities within the U.S. and the mediocre international ranking of US student performance require more research, a task that is best accomplished through interdisciplinary approaches.

    2013-01-01

    This article aims to review the past practices of educational technology and envision future directions for medical education. The discussion starts with a historical review of definitions and perspectives of educational technology, in which the authors propose that educators adopt a broader process-oriented understanding of educational technology. Future directions of e-learning, simulation, and health information technology are discussed based on a systems view of the technological process. As new technologies continue to arise, this process-oriented understanding and outcome-based expectations of educational technology should be embraced. With this view, educational technology should be valued in terms of how well the technological process informs and facilitates learning, and the acquisition and maintenance of clinical expertise.

In addition to this, the economic model imposed, communications, technology and western educational system have been favourable to increase inequality, injustice and decrease human development. Therefore, education has been looking for new ways to approach this type of violence and Peace Education emerges as an innovative alternative of learning in order to promote social progress and better standards of life. One of the relevant aspects of Peace Education is that it can adjust to different situations and it gives pedagogic solutions to the new global challenges.

Outdoor Education is an educational practice that is already rooted in the philosophical thought of the 16th and the 17th centuries, from John Locke to Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and in the pedagogical thought, in particular Friedrich Fröbel, and it has now a quite stable tradition in Northern Europe countries. In Italy, however, there are still few experiences and they usually do not have a systematic and structural modality, but rather a temporarily and experimentally outdoor organization. In the first part, this paper focuses on the reasons that justify a particular attention to educational paths that favour outdoors activities, providing also a definition of outdoor education and highlighting its values. It is also essential to understand that educational programs in open spaces, such as a forest or simply the schoolyard, surely offers the possibility to learn geographical situations. Therefore, the question that arises is how to finalize the best stimulus that the spatial location guarantees for the acquisition of knowledge, skills and abilities about space and geography.

    The American Academy of Pediatrics recognizes that exposure to mass media (eg, television, movies, video and computer games, the Internet, music lyrics and videos, newspapers, magazines, books, advertising) presents health risks for children and adolescents but can provide benefits as well. Media education has the potential to reduce the harmful effects of media and accentuate the positive effects. By understanding and supporting media education, pediatricians can play an important role in reducing harmful effects of media on children and adolescents.

This article emphasizes the relations between theory and the social education actions, the social educator continual education, according to three focus: Brazilian higher education aspects, the call for a more general education towards the demands resulting from the contemporary context, in which the formal education, in its different levels, cannot answer the low income adults, youngsters and children solicitations and yet the requests needed for the social educator continual education. The readings have shown that the debate is insufficient in face of the social education experiences carried out in national and international scenarios. It is a field to be effectively established.

    Africa has the highest population growth rate in the world (3%). It has 650 million people (about 900 million in 2000). Rapid population growth has serious consequences which, if not addressed, will be disastrous. This worrisome situation has led some governments to adopt demographic policies to slow down population growth. The UN Economic, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) recommends that schools provide population education. Various population conferences have popularized population education in schools among African countries. UNESCO began its regional program on population education in Africa in 1969. National family life and population education (FL/PE) projects have increased from 4 in 1970 to 32 in 1990 (17 in French- and Portuguese-speaking Africa and 5 in English-speaking Africa). These projects teach students about the links between demographic problems and socioeconomic factors and contemporary culture. They aim for total development of the individual and improvement of the quality of life for the individual, family, and community. Topics covered in FL/PE are birth rate; fertility; health; and maternal, infant, and child mortality; unwanted pregnancy; illegal abortion; sexually transmitted diseases; rural-urban migration; and urbanization. Benin introduced FL/PE at all levels of its education system while Senegal, Guinea, Mauritania, and Zaire introduced it to only the primary and secondary school levels. Some countries teach FL/PE as one discipline while most countries (e.g., Senegal) have integrated it into other disciplines (e.g., geography). FL/PE should begin in primary schools because they have the most students and prepare students for middle schools, which provide FL/PE. Elementary education in Senegal is being overhauled to introduce current major problems bit by bit. Senegal also wants to incorporate FL/PE into literacy and adult education programs. Integration of FL/PE into other disciplines should be encouraged.

    Full Text Available The educational system plays a role in the broader political socialisa-tion process. Even if this role is contingent, an important questionremains as to how schools contribute to the integration of newgenerations in political life. This article aims at improving empiricalknowledge about this contribution. In many Western countries suchpolitical education seems to focus on formal structure of institutions,constitutional frameworks, discussions of current issues and for-mal rights of citizens. The Norwegian national curriculum outlinesa different political education, focusing on critical analysis of the po-litical system, encouragement of many forms of political participa-tion, examination of policy-making processes and policy contents.To what extent are these purposes of a critical, activist citizenryimplemented at the classroom level? This question is analysed usingboth qualitative and survey data. The analysis suggests that formal-ism does not dominate Norwegian political education. Political par-ties, elections, comparison of party programs are most commonlythe key elements in a political education closely related to the citizenideals of competitive elite democracy.

    Introduction How can we get the public to appreciate the way scientific understanding advances via iterative research? How can we provide females and underrepresented minorities an opportunity to be involved in science early enough in their schooling to make a difference in career motivation? How can research laboratories help improve science education in our schools and prepare students with skills that they will need in the workforce? We do not have the answers to these questions. Indeed, we are only beginning to work together, as researchers and educators, on these topics. However, the Editor, upon seeing the large number of student and educator coauthors on our paper in this issue of Journal of Geophysical Research, invited us to describe our fledgling program, with the hope of stimulating dialogue on a topic of increasing interest.

    Lars Løvlie

    2006-03-01

    Full Text Available In this essay I try to describe the development of a traditional liberal education into a technological liberal one. I propose that we start by dropping the classical oppositions between man and animal, and man and machine; that we stop pitting morality against technology and rhetoric; and that we do away with the idea that ICT in our schools will necessarily tear the fabric of education apart. We should rather try and re-describe the idea of an unencumbered and independent self in terms of relational concepts, like the cyborg or more radically: like the self as interface. John Dewey led the way to this view a century ago, by coining the word intelligence as the name of educative interactions between man, animal and machine. The self as interface is a self of differences rather than identities. But that idea does not do away with our emplaced body, or our personal sense of self and identity. In the postmodern world, the cyborg is a migrant with the ability to interpret signs, understand symbols of power, see through rhetorical games, engage in argumentation, and in these activities partake in his or her own political education. The Internet nomad does not bode anarchy. He or she is the radically decentred subject that may well participate in Kant’s cosmopolitanism, Jürgen Habermas’ discourse ethics and Jacques Derrida’s deconstruction. – But this is to go slightly beyond the text submitted here …

    2015-10-01

    Full Text Available When the knowledge gained over centuries has to be presented to students through a 12-15 year study, it has to be abridged and organized elaborately. This process of encapsulating all knowledge into an educational course often results in fragmentation of knowledge and a mental divorce from life. Life knowledge that is reduced to objective principles may be intelligible to the intellect, but is incomprehensible to the imagination, creativity and emotional intelligence, all of which are important to the full development of personality. A study of Economics without the human and social dimensions, industrialization detached from ecology, or science devoid of moral accountability results in problems. Education of each part must be in the context of the whole. Knowing the whole context helps one get the right perspective to address the issue effectively. In the education of the future, the gap between abstract concept and social relevance must be bridged. The following article explores the need for contextual education and the ways in which it can be implemented.

    To develop the pedagogic efficiency of informal education in science teaching, promoting a close cooperation between institutions is suggested by Monteiro, Janerine, de Carvalho, and Martins. In their article, they point out effective examples of how teachers and educators work together to develop programs and activities at informal education places such as science museums. Their study explored and discussed the viability and relevancy of school visits to museums and possibilities to enhance the connection between students' visits in informal contexts and their learning in schools. Given that students learn science by crossing the boundaries of formal and informal learning contexts, it is critical to examine ways of integrated and collaborative approach to develop scientific literacy to help students think, act and communicate as members of problem solving communities. In this forum, we suggest the importance of students' lifeworld contexts in informal learning places as continuum of Monteiro, Janerine, de Carvalho, and Martins' discussion on enhancing the effectiveness of informal learning places in science education.

    In theory, the Medical Council of India (MCI) determines the standards and qualifications of medical schools. It also sanctions curricula and ensures standards. Yet no standards exist on the mode of selection in medical schools, duration of study, course content, student stipends or period of internship. It takes 4.5 years to finish medical school. Students undergo preclinical, paraclinical, and clinical training. Most courses are in English which tends to favor the urban elite. Students cannot always communicate with patients in local languages. Textbooks often provide medical examples unrelated to India. Pedagogy consists mainly of lectures and rote learning predominates. Curricula tend not to provide courses in community health. Students pick up on the elitist attitudes of the faculty. For example, faculty do not put much emphasis on community health, individual health, equity in health care delivery, and teamwork. Further the education system is not patient oriented, but hospital or disease oriented. Faculty should train students in creating sanitation programs, knowing local nutritious foods, and in making community diagnoses. Yet they tend to be practitioners 1st then educators. Further faculty are not paid well and are not always invited to take part in improving curriculum, so morale is often low. Moreover experience in health planning and management issues is not required for administrators. In addition, medical schools are not well equipped with learning aids, libraries, or teaching staff. Tax revenues finance medical education. 75% of graduating physicians set up a private practice. Further many physicians go to urban areas. 34-57% emigrate to other countries. The problems of medical education will not be solved until the political and economic system becomes more responsive to the health needs of the people.

It is thus the application of marketing thought in the educational management area. For the successful implementation of it the necessary connection of top management, marketing department and HRM department is demanded which consequentially means that internal marketing functions as a holistically managed process. It can best be described as a management philosophy for communicating, training, educating and informing, motivating and developing, employing and retaining employees. Within the discussed concept empowerment represent the key component. Due to the imbedded additional responsibility it brings to employees it is thus necessary to emphasize the role of educational management which should create servile and customer oriented organizational culture. However, despite nearly 25 years of development, the concept of internal marketing has not achieved the widespread recognition among the managers that it deserves. The major reason for this is that the concept was (is well ahead of its time.

Twenty-first century professionals need a special training that enables them to venture into various branches of knowledge. Therefore, they must have an original thinking and innovation skills; they must be part of their training, take a dignified position in the social context they live in and be committed to its mission. The University, as a social institution, should include in their training models social problems and transformation processes, so that students learn and teachers teach with true meaning and significance. At university level, values education is centered in the practical teaching-learning process and is based on study and work. This problem needs to be analyzed from a specific historical approach on subject-object relationship. This work is aimed at socializing some theoretical and practical reflections on values education at the university as well as teacher's role in their formation from an instructive perspective.

    Full Text Available One of the objectives of the research to which this paper is linked is to understand the conditions of possibility of passage from a modern childhood to a contemporary childhood in the Brazilian context of the turn of the century. From this perspective, the article investigates how the kids youtubers, children with hundreds of thousands of subscribers on their YouTube channels, construct ways of being in the world through the production and dissemination of their videos. The analysis is based on the following argument: since "the walls of privacy" have been instrumental in building a modern childhood, their erosion is enabling increased visibility of children and their colonization in the public sphere, contributing to the emergence of new conceptions of childhood. Among the preliminary findings of this study is that being famous or a celebrity can be a possibility to be a child in contemporary.

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available Systemic examination of the phenomenon of the educational environment is one of the important issues in the theory and methodology of higher education . The examination  of  types of educational environments  is related to the problem of the professional competencies development of the  students as future professionals in the study process at the higher educational institution since the  formation of the student's personality is influenced  not only by purposeful study process but also by specific educational environment in which the student is plunged. There is no doubt that the scope and ratio of social experience, object education and individual support are different in different types of educational institutions. The differences depend on the specifics of the educational process, value aspirations and teachers’ pedagogical conceptions. That’s why it is necessary to study different types of educational environments and their influence on the formation of students’ and trainees’ professionally important qualities and the development of their personalities as professionals in general. This article is a part of the research on studying specific character of the educational environment at higher educational law enforcement institution. It summarizes the results of the analysis of scientific  papers describing models of educational environment in relation to the system of higher education.DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.12731/2218-7405-2014-4-5

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Valdir Nogueira

    2010-07-01

    Full Text Available This paper aims to reflect on the relation between Multiculturalism and Environmental Education, focusing on the education of environmental educators. The cultural question and some of its implications, along with the need for a comprehensible cultural conception in view of various coexisting lifestyles in different places and regions, are approached within the context of globalisation, which acts upon culture. It is assumed that Education, when brought together with a socioenvironmental perspective, is capable of promoting democratic citizenship and thus should be directed to multicultural purposes, reinforcing interculturality. This perspective requires thinking the education of educators in a complex and dialectical world view, valuing interdisciplinarity and encouraging sociocultural practices for the development of environmental education.

    This paper seeks to contribute to the development of the field of ‘schools in extreme settings’ as a specific problem space for research that informs school-focused policies and interventions to support children in adversity. Through a review of articles in this issue of International Journal...... of Education Development, we argue that such a field can facilitate a much needed discussion on the role of schools in supporting and protecting vulnerable children, highlighting how schools both contribute to and actively address disadvantages and hardship facing children. We end the paper by charting out key...... research areas for the field. We caution against earmarking schools and teachers as actors responsible for ameliorating the impacts of complex social problems in the absence of efforts to embed schools in supportive local community, national and global responses to support such a trend....

    Tales around the World give visibility to local, national and international fundamental connection that always existed between people and the night sky that means Astronomy. In this paper we discuss and analyze further the role of Astronomy Education for achieving an integrated concept of education, one that enables individuals to adapt to a rapidly changing social, economic and cultural environment, and to continue to learn throughout life. It is no longer enough to learn how to read, write and count. We also discuss and present initiatives undertaken in the context of various national, and international educational projects in Greece as best practices on how Astronomy Education can actually reinforce the Contemporary Education.

  16. The problem is education not ``special education''

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fellner, Gene

    2015-12-01

    In his article, Urban special education policy and the lived experience of stigma in a high school science classroom, Chris Hale persuasively argues that the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and subsequent special education policies have largely failed to serve special education students who are stigmatized by their deficit classification. Though classified students may be doubly stigmatized, research suggests that students of color who live in economically stressed communities are also subject to systemic educational policies that produce stigma; special education should be understood within the larger context of educational policy in the inner city. Though we cannot immediately dismantle the macro level structures that nurture stigma, I suggest pedagogies based on facilitating phenomenological awareness enacted through individual-collectively based methodologies to challenge the stigma that classified as well as non-classified students in the inner city often carry with them.

    2016-01-01

    Objective: To survey US-trained graduating neurology residents who are American Academy of Neurology members, in an effort to trend perceived quality and completeness of graduate neurology education. Methods: An electronic survey was sent to all American Academy of Neurology members graduating from US neurology residency programs in the Spring of 2014. Results: Of 805 eligible respondents, 24% completed the survey. Ninety-three percent of adult neurology residents and 56% of child neurology residents reported plans to pursue fellowship training after residency. Respondents reported a desire for additional training in neurocritical care, neuro-oncology, neuromuscular diseases, botulinum toxin injection, and nerve blocks. There remains a clear deficit in business training of neurology residents, although there was notable improvement in knowledge of coding and office management compared to previous surveys. Discussion: Although there are still areas of perceived weakness in neurology training, graduating neurology residents feel generally well prepared for their chosen careers. However, most still pursue fellowship training for reasons that are little understood. In addition to certain subspecialties and procedures, practice management remains deficient in neurology training and is a point of future insecurity for most residents. Future curriculum changes should consider resident-reported gaps in knowledge, with careful consideration of improving business training. PMID:26976522

Education was always open to those who desired it and had the means to pay for it. And while the state was fully aware that its functionaries had need of at least a rudimentary schooling, education in itself was never a prerequisite for holding an imperial post. On the other hand, education was a highly regarded element in anyone's m...
