    Full Text Available One of the interesting themes covered in Turkish poetry is compassion. Events experienced by poor, homeless, ill or desperate people in their daily lives, miseries felt or unfair situations encountered by people are covered within the scope of a sense of pity and compassion. The period in which this theme, which almost came to be a trend, was widely covered coincides with Servet-i Fünûn period. Mehmet Âkif Ersoy is one of the poets dealing with the theme of compassion, which maintained its attraction even after Constitutionalist period. These kinds of poems, which were collected by him particularly in the first book of Safahat, are the ones that made him famous and that are liked most. This study will evaluate the theme of compassion, which became one of the dominant elements of art of Mehmet Akif, in terms of factors leading poet to this theme and the manner in which this theme is covered in his poems Türk şiirinde ele alınan dikkat çekici konulardan biri merhamet temidir. Yoksul, kimsesiz, hasta, çaresiz insanların gündelik hayatında yaşadığı olaylar, halkın çektiği ıstıraplar ya da karşılaştığı haksız durumlar, acıma ve merhamet duygusu etrafında işlenir. Neredeyse bir moda halini alan bu temin konu edildiği tarih, Servet-i Fünûn dönemine rastlar. Meşrutiyet sonrasında da cazibesini sürdüren merhamet temini ele alanlardan biri de Mehmet Âkif Ersoy’dur. Özellikle Safahat’ın birinci kitabında toplanan bu tarz şiirler, şaire şöhret kazandıran ve aynı zamanda onun en beğenilen şiirleri arasında yer alır. Bu çalışmada Mehmet Akif’in sanatının hâkim unsurlarından biri haline gelen merhamet temi; şairi bu konuya yönelten etkenler ve bu temin onun şiirlerinde nasıl ele alındığı yönleriyle değerlendirilecektir.

    Full Text Available Mehmet Âkif’s view to Russians is negative because of Panslavist-emperialist policies that carried out by Russian Tsars and the long-term Ottoman Russian Wars in 19th century. The Central Asia, Caucasia and Balkan nations of problems and sorrows that suffered from Russians, have been expressed usually in the falling period of Ottoman State’s in Âkif’s poems. But expressing these, Âkif did not become an enemy of Russian peoples. He only opposed to Russian State’s policy in that time. Âkif who adopts (appropriates “justice” as the most important principle during his life, has expressed his admiration to Russian literature and art in any case. Âkif loved and respected Russian painters Feldman, Jewish origin Russian pianist Leopold Godowsky and Mari Mençenko that looked after himself at the last days of his life. 19. yüzyılda Rus Çarlarının yürüttüğü Panslavist-emperyalist politikalardan ve uzun süren Osmanlı-Rus Savaşlarından dolayı Mehmet Âkif’in Ruslara bakışı olumsuzdur. Âkif’in şiirlerinde genellikle Osmanlı Devleti’nin yıkılış döneminde sahipsiz kalan Orta Asya, Kafkasya ve Balkan milletlerinin Ruslardan çektiği sıkıntılar ve acılar dile getirilir. Fakat Âkif, bunları dile getirirken Rus halkına düşmanlık beslememiş, sadece Rus devletinin o zaman yürüttüğü politikalara karşı çıkmıştır. Hayatı boyunca hakkaniyeti kendisine en önemli şiar edinen Âkif, her fırsatta Rus edebiyatına ve sanatına olan hayranlığını da ifade etmiştir. Rus ressam Feldman ve Yahudi asıllı Rus piyanist Leopold Godowsky ve son günlerinde ona bakan hastabakıcı Mari Mançenko Âkif’in sevdiği ve saygı duyduğu Ruslardır.

    Full Text Available Özet: Meşrutiyet devri tarih ders kitapları, gerek devrin yönetiminin tarihe olan bakış açısını yansıtması gerekse de bu devirde yetişen ve Türkiye Cumhuriyeti’ni kuran nesillerin zihnindeki tarih algısının şekillenmesindeki etkileriyle oldukça önemli, ilk elden kaynaklardır. Bu nedenle meşrutiyet devri ders kitaplarının incelenmesi ve muhtevalarının bilinmesi ciddi bir önem arz eder. Çalışmamız, bu bağlamda meşrutiyet devrinde uzun yıllar askeri idadilerde ders kitabı olarak okutulan bir “Osmanlı Tarihi”ni ve yazarı Fatihli Mehmet Tevfik Paşa’yı tanıtmak amacıyla hazırlanmıştır. Fatihli Mehmet Tevfik Paşa’nın eserini, askeri idadilerde okutulması nedeniyle dönemin diğer tarih ders kitaplarından ayrı tutmak gerekir. Çünkü başta Mustafa Kemal Atatürk olmak üzere askeri idadilerde yetişen, Türkiye Cumhuriyeti’ne yön veren birçok isim Fatihli Mehmet Tevfik Paşa’nın eseriyle tarihi öğrenmiştir. Fatihli Mehmet Tevfik Paşa ile Atatürk’ün yolu bir noktada daha kesişmektedir. Atatürk’ün Manastır Askeri İdadisi’ndeki tarih öğretmenin adı Mehmet Tevfik Bilge’dir. Atatürk’ün kendisinden övgüyle bahsettiği, Türk Tarih Kurumu’nun üyeliğine atadığı ve bir dönem mebusluk da yaptırdığı Mehmet Tevfik Bilge isim benzerliği nedeniyle Mehmet Tevfik Paşa ile karıştırılmıştır. Birçok araştırmada Mehmet Tevfik Bilge’ye atfedilen Osmanlı Tarihi adlı eserin aslında Mehmet Tevfik Paşa’ya ait olduğunun izahı çalışmamızın diğer ana temasıdır. Anahtar Kelimeler: Ders Kitabı, Tarih, Osmanlı, Fatihli Mehmet Tevfik, Tarih Öğretimi Abstract: Meşrutiyet era history textboks are importance reliable resources not only they reflect the understanding of the Meşrutiyet by the state but also of the effects of these boks on generations who later founded the republic.

In these works, his poor technics of poems and poetics are the top critics to his works. However, these critics seem unfair by taking into consideration his poetics and the term when these poets were written. The only aim of the poet who shaped his works in the most depressed period of Turks lived, is not to reach the pure poem, his aim is not only express the pains but also encourage the Turkish folk by reminding the values of them. At the same time, the poet trying to shape the future by the help of the national senses and aims, struggles with the

    Full Text Available Rauni-Leena Luukanen-Kilde (b. 1939 is a well-known figure in the Finnish alternative spiritual milieu. She is an author and lecturer on parapsychology and ufology and has been a guest on several talk shows in the Nordic countries. The topics discussed by Luukanen-Kilde range from the psychic abilities of mankind to visitations from extraterrestrial beings. Since the mid-1980s Luukanen-Kilde has developed conspiracy theories about an elite group governing the world in secret. Luukanen-Kilde is a bestselling author and draws audiences of several hundreds to her talks. Her conspiracy theory view of the world offers explanations for all kinds of personal, national, as well as global problems and disasters. Personal health problems, tragic incidents such as school shootings, economic crises and unemployment, earthquakes and floods can, according to her belief system, all be attributed to a single cause; namely to the actions of a clandestine, malevolent group. The popularity of Luukanen-Kilde’s books and lectures can be seen as an example of how people in late modernity are seeking alternative interpretations of themselves and of world events.

    Full Text Available Objetivando comparar a atividade antimicrobiana de extratos brutos de Cladonia substellata, proveniente dos Estados de Minas Gerais e Pará, Brasil, utilizou-se o método de difusão em meio sólido. Extratos etéreo, clorofórmico e acetônico foram testados contra patógenos humanos e fitopatógenos na concentração de 1,0 mg/mL, 0,1 mg/mL e 0,01 mg/mL. Os extratos foram submetidos à cromatografia em camada delgada, e o princípio ativo atribuído através de biocromatografia. Os resultados demonstraram que as sete espécies de fungos testadas foram resistentes aos extratos de C. substellata procedente do Pará, porém, quatro destas espécies mostraram-se sensíveis aos extratos etéreo e clorofórmico da amostra de Minas Gerais. Todos os extratos foram ativos contra as mesmas espécies de bactérias, entretanto os extratos da amostra procedente de Minas Gerais demonstraram melhor atividade. Das bactérias inibidas, Staphylococcus aureus mostrou-se a menos sensível, ao contrário das fitopatógenas que apresentaram grande sensibilidade. Os testes cromatográficos revelaram a presença de ácido úsnico em todos os extratos, porém, em maior quantidade na amostra do Pará. O biocromatograma revelou este ácido como princípio ativo da espécie, além de sua ação sinérgica com o ácido norestíctico, na amostra de Minas Gerais, justificando sua maior atividade.This work purposed to make a comparison between antimicrobial activity of crude extracts from Cladonia substellata, collected at Minas Gerais and Pará States, Brazil, using the diffusion solid medium methods. Ether, chloroform, and acetone extracts, at 1 mg/mL, 0.1 mg/mL, and 0.01 mg/mL, were tested against human pathogens and phytopathogens. The extracts were submitted to thin layer chromatography and their active principles attributed by biochromatography. The results demonstrated that the seven fungi species tested were no sensitive to extracts from C. substellata from Pará. On the other hand, four of these microorganisms were inhibited by C. substellata extracts from Minas Gerais. All extracts were active to the same bacteria species, but samples from Minas Gerais showed the highest activity. Among the inhibited bacteria Staphylococcus aureus was the less sensitive, with an opposite behavior to phytopathogen ones, that showed the highest sensitivity. Chromatographic assays revealed the presence of usnic acid in all extracts, thus in the most content in Pará samples. The biochromatograms reveals usnic acid as active principle of the species, and a synergic action to norstictic acid found in Minas Gerais samples, what justify its highest activity.

    Full Text Available Directora: Leena Yadav.                  Productora: Ashlee Films, Blue Waters Motion Pictures. Guión: Supratik Sen, Leena Yadav.       La película de la directora india Leena Yadav es un retrato coral sobre la vida femenina y la desigualdad en que viven las mujeres en sociedades altamente patriarcales y misóginas como la India rural contemporánea. A través de la interacción entre cuatro personajes, el filme se convierte en una crítica social sobre las diferentes formas de violencia que sufren las mujeres: desde el matrimonio forzado de niñas al maltrato conyugal pasando por las agresiones sexuales. Las vidas entrelazadas de la viuda Rani, la maltratada Lajjo, la artista prostituta Bijli y la mujer niña casada a la fuerza, Janiki, realizan un retrato demoledor sobre la sociedad india. Se trata, no obstante, de un filme luminoso, con una excepcional fotografía, iluminación, guión, ritmo, trabajo actoral y banda sonora; un juego musical, visual y emocional que en ningún momento pierde su carácter de denuncia social y que pone en primer plano el valor esencial de la amistad femenina.

    A new pheophytin, (13 2 S, 17S, 18S)-13 2 -hydroxy-20-chloro-ethylpheophorbide a (3), along with two known analogues (1-2) were isolated from the lichen Usnea diffracta Vainio (Parmeliaceae). Among them, compound 3 was a rare C-20-chloro type pheophytin obtained from lichens. Their structures were elucidated by extensive spectroscopic analysis, and all the compounds were obtained for the first time from U. diffracta. Compounds (1-3) were evaluated for their xanthine oxidase (XO) inhibitory activities in vitro, and the results showed that 1-3 possessed significant enzyme inhibitory actions with IC 50 values of 46.9 ± 3.8, 75.9 ± 7.4 and 42.1 ± 1.7 μg/mL, respectively.

  18. Comparing measurement errors for formants in synthetic and natural vowels.

    2016-02-01

    The measurement of formant frequencies of vowels is among the most common measurements in speech studies, but measurements are known to be biased by the particular fundamental frequency (F0) exciting the formants. Approaches to reducing the errors were assessed in two experiments. In the first, synthetic vowels were constructed with five different first formant (F1) values and nine different F0 values; formant bandwidths, and higher formant frequencies, were constant. Input formant values were compared to manual measurements and automatic measures using the linear prediction coding-Burg algorithm, linear prediction closed-phase covariance, the weighted linear prediction-attenuated main excitation (WLP-AME) algorithm [Alku, Pohjalainen, Vainio, Laukkanen, and Story (2013). J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 134(2), 1295-1313], spectra smoothed cepstrally and by averaging repeated discrete Fourier transforms. Formants were also measured manually from pruned reassigned spectrograms (RSs) [Fulop (2011). Speech Spectrum Analysis (Springer, Berlin)]. All but WLP-AME and RS had large errors in the direction of the strongest harmonic; the smallest errors occur with WLP-AME and RS. In the second experiment, these methods were used on vowels in isolated words spoken by four speakers. Results for the natural speech show that F0 bias affects all automatic methods, including WLP-AME; only the formants measured manually from RS appeared to be accurate. In addition, RS coped better with weaker formants and glottal fry.

Data on D-dimer assay, GRACE and TIMI risk scores were recorded. Logistic regression analysis was conducted to determine the risk factors predicting increased mortality.Results: Median D-dimer levels were 349.5 (48.0–7,210.0 ng/mL, the average TIMI score was 3.2±1.2 and the GRACE score was 90.4±27.6 with high GRACE scores (>118 in 17.5% of patients. The GRACE score was correlated positively with both the D-dimer assay (r=0.215, P=0.01 and TIMI scores (r=0.504, P=0.000. Multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed that higher creatinine levels (odds ratio =18.465, 95% confidence interval: 1.059–322.084, P=0.046 constituted the only significant predictor of increased mortality risk with no predictive values for age, D-dimer assay, ejection fraction, glucose, hemoglobin A1c, sodium, albumin or total cholesterol levels for mortality.Conclusion: Serum creatinine levels constituted the sole independent determinant of mortality risk, with no significant values for D

We used adult male Wistar albino rats with a mean weight of 250–300 g and divided the rats into eight groups. The groups were subjected to an ELF-EMF that was applied with a high-voltage line for 8 hours/day for 26 days (Groups I, II, and III or 52 days (Groups V, VI, and VII. Groups IV and VIII were the 26- and 52-day control/sham groups, respectively. Groups II and VI were treated with GL, and Groups III and VII were treated with MLT. MLT and GL were administered daily based on the weight of the animals and appropriate standards. At the end of the study, the rats were euthanized, and their anterior teeth were extracted. The teeth were preserved in pure water before evaluating the major TEs. At the end of the study, TE concentrations (in mg/kg were assessed in the control and test groups. Compared with Group V, statistically significant differences in the concentrations of zinc (Zn and strontium (Sr were found for Group VII (ELF-EMF + MLT (P<0.05.

  14. The Case of Dr. Oz: Ethics, Evidence, and Does Professional Self-Regulation Work?

    2017-02-01

    Dr. Mehmet Oz is widely known not just as a successful media personality donning the title "America's Doctor ® ," but, we suggest, also as a physician visibly out of step with his profession. A recent, unsuccessful attempt to censure Dr. Oz raises the issue of whether the medical profession can effectively self-regulate at all. It also raises concern that the medical profession's self-regulation might be selectively activated, perhaps only when the subject of professional censure has achieved a level of public visibility. We argue here that the medical profession must look at itself with a healthy dose of self-doubt about whether it has sufficient knowledge of or handle on the less visible Dr. "Ozes" quietly operating under the profession's presumptive endorsement. © 2017 American Medical Association.

Antenatal examinations are important in selection for trial of labor, while birth management can be difficult when the patients present at emergency condition. But there is an increased chance of vaginal birth with advanced cervical dilation. This study attempts to evaluate factors associated with success of vaginal birth after cesarean section and to compare the maternal and perinatal outcomes between vaginal birth after cesarean section and intrapartum cesarean section in patients who were admitted to hospital during the active or second stage of labor. A retrospective evaluation was made from the results of 127 patients. Cesarean section was performed in 57 patients; 70 attempted trial of labor. The factors associated with success of vaginal birth after cesarean section were investigated. Maternal and neonatal outcomes were compared between the groups. Vaginal birth after cesarean section was successful in 55% of cases. Advanced cervical opening, effacement, gravidity, parity, and prior vaginal delivery were factors associated with successful vaginal birth. The vaginal birth group had more complications (P<0.01, but these were minor. The rate of blood transfusion and prevalence of changes in hemoglobin level were similar in both groups (P>0.05. In this study, cervical opening, effacement, gravidity, parity, and prior vaginal delivery were important factors for successful vaginal birth after cesarean section. The patients’ requests influenced outcome. Trial of

    The aim of this study was to determine the injury spectrum and characteristics of people who committed suicide by jumping into water from the July 15th Martyrs Bridge and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridges in Istanbul, Turkey. This study included all of the jumpers from the July 15th Martyrs Bridge and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge who were autopsied by the Council of Forensic Medicine, Istanbul Morgue Department, between 2000 and 2013. All of the data were collected from archived case files. Trauma scores were calculated from the traumatic findings of the autopsy reports using the New Injury Severity Score (NISS). A total of 80 jumping suicides were identified. The male-to-female ratio was 9:1, and the mean age was 34.06 ± 9.6 years. Most suicides occurred in 2009. The suicide rates were higher in the winter, particularly in December. The most frequent injuries were skin lesions, rib fractures, and lung lacerations. In 12% of the cases, the trauma was minor (NISS range, 0-14; mean, 7 ± 5.67), and in 88% of the cases, it was major (NISS range, 17-66; mean NISS, 44.5 ± 12.46). The sociodemographic features of the jumpers who committed suicide were quite similar to those reported in previous studies. Preventative measures (installation of barriers or banning pedestrian access to bridges) reduced the suicide rate but were not completely effective. Establishing early warning systems and rescue strategies could save the lives of jumpers who have minor trauma.

Recurrent COPD exacerbations accelerate lung-function decline, worsen mortality, and consume over US$50 billion in health care spending annually. This has led to a tide of payment reforms eliciting interest in strategies reducing preventable COPD exacerbations. In this review, we analyze and discuss the evidence for COPD action plan-based self-management strategies. Although action plans may provide stabilization of acute symptomatology, there are several limitations. These include patient-centered attributes, such as comprehension and adherence, and nonadherence of health care providers to established guidelines. While no single intervention can be expected independently to translate into improved outcomes, structured together within a comprehensive integrated disease-management program, they may provide a robust paradigm. Keywords: exacerbations, self-management, integrated disease-management program

Suicidal behavior has multiple causes, which are broadly divided into those related to proximal stressors and those due to predisposition. Suicide statistics may be associated with mental health disorders, which are among the foremost predictors of suicide attempts. More than 90% of patients who commit suicide have a diagnosable psychiatric disorder, usually a major depressive disorder. Other major risk factors for suicide attempts are history of suicide attempts in the family, stressful life events, sleep disturbances, poor income, unemployment, severity of symptoms of depression, and anxiety. Sleep is a complex phenomenon. Sleep disturbances can therefore be contributed to the emergence of suicidal behavior allowing for the possibility of predicting future suicides. Methods: We evaluated 106 patients who were admitted after suicide attempts to the Department of Psychiatry at Dicle University Faculty of Medicine. The recruited subjects were assessed by Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis I disorders, and the intensity of symptoms was evaluated using the Beck Anxiety Inventory, Hamilton Depression Rating Scale, and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index. The mean values of the subjects attempting multiple and single suicides were compared using appropriate inferential statistical tests. Results: Most suicide attempts are believed to be preventable. Our results revealed that a great variety of risk factors are associated with an increased risk for multiple suicide attempts. Most of these attempts appeared to be spontaneous and impulsive rather than planned. In particular, this study highlights the importance of previous suicide attempts, history of

There is strong evidence that urinary incontinence (UI is positively correlated with body mass index (BMI. Aim: One of the many benefits experienced by obese patients after bariatric surgery is decrease in UI. To investigate this correlation, we aimed to examine the effects of weight loss on UI in female patients who had undergone laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG. Materials and methods: Obese female patients (n=120, ≥18 years of age, and planning to undergo LSG were included in this prospective study. We administered the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Urinary Incontinence-Short Form (ICIQ-UI-SF and Incontinence Impact Questionnaire (IIQ-7 to the patients prior to surgery and 6 months after the surgery. Using the collected data, we determined the incidence of UI and examined the relationship between the preoperative and postoperative BMI and UI values. Results: The mean age of the patients was 39.19 (standard deviation [SD] =9.94 years and the mean preoperative BMI was 46.17 (SD =5.35. Of the 120 patients, 72 (60% complained of UI preoperatively. Among these 72 patients, 23 (31.95% described urge incontinence, 18 (25% stress incontinence, and 31 (43.05% mixed-type incontinence. At 6 months postoperatively, the percentage of excess weight loss was 70.33% (SD =14.84%.

It was reported that increased production of the main proinflammatory cytokines, such as interleukin-1, interleukin-6, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and that of acute phase reactants may play a role in the etiopathogenesis of depression. Stress and depression were reported to increase leukocyte and neutrophil counts and to decrease lymphocyte count. Biological determinants affecting the diagnosis, therapy, and prognosis of depression are quite limited. Therefore, new etiological models are needed to explain the pathophysiology of depression. In recent years, neutrophil–lymphocyte ratio (NLR was determined to be a good indicator of inflammatory status. There is no study in the literature investigating NLR in MDD. This study aims to examine the role of inflammation in the etiology of depression based on the NLR in MDD patients who are undergoing no pharmacological therapy. A total of 41 patients diagnosed with MDD, who received no antidepressant therapy within the past 1 month, were included in the study, which took place between January and March 2015. The control group consisted of 47 healthy subjects with no psychiatric disorders. A sociodemographic information form and a Beck Depression Scale were administered, and the blood was taken for biochemical analysis. Significant differences were identified in the NLR, neutrophil count, lymphocyte percentage, and leukocyte values of the patient group when compared with the control group (P<0.05. Our study is the first in which NLR was investigated in MDD. The findings of the

The Mediterranean fever gene (MEFV encodes the pyrin protein. The major role of pyrin appears to be in the regulation of inflammation activity and the processing of the cytokine pro-interleukin-1β, and this cytokine plays a part in migraine pathogenesis. This study included 220 migraine patients and 228 healthy controls. Eight common missense mutations of the MEFV gene, known as M694V, M694I, M680I, V726A, R761H, K695R, P369S, and E148Q, were genotyped using real-time polymerase chain reaction with 5' nuclease assays, which include sequence specific primers, and probes with a reporter dye. When mutations were evaluated separately among the patient and control groups, only the heterozygote E148Q carrier was found to be significantly higher in the control group than in the patient group (P=0.029, odds ratio [95% confidence interval] =0.45 [0.21–0.94]. In addition, the frequency of the homozygote and the compound heterozygote genotype carrier was found to be significantly higher in patients (n=8, 3.6% than in the control group (n=1, 0.4% (P=0.016, odds ratio [95% confidence interval] =8.57 [1.06–69.07]. However, there was no statistically significant difference in the allele frequencies of MEFV mutations between the patients and the healthy control group (P=0.964.

However, human exposure to the pesticide leads to neurotoxicity. Glutamine is one of the principal, free intracellular amino acids and may also be an antioxidant. This study was undertaken in order to examine the neuroprotective and antioxidant potential of L-glutamine against DLM toxicity in female Wistar albino rats. Materials and methods: The rats were divided into the following groups (n=10: Group I: control (distilled water; 10 mL/kg, po one dose, Group II: L-glutamine (1.5 g/kg, po one dose, Group III: DLM (35 mg/kg, po one dose, and Group IV: DLM (35 mg/kg, po one dose and L-glutamine (1.5 g/kg, po one dose after 4 hours. Total oxidant status (TOS, total antioxidant status (TAS, tumor necrosis factor-α, interleukin (IL-1β, and IL-6 levels and apoptosis were evaluated in brain tissue. Results: DLM-treated animals had a significant increase in brain biochemical parameters, as well as TOS and TAS. Furthermore, the histopathological examination showed neuronal cell degeneration in the cerebral tissue. L-Glutamine treatment decreased the elevated brain levels of TOS and neuronal cell degeneration. There was no difference in tumor necrosis factor-α, IL-1β, and IL-6 levels between the groups. Conclusion: L-Glutamine may reduce the toxic effects of DLM in the cerebral tissue through antioxidant properties. Keywords: deltamethrin, L-glutamine, rat

The differential diagnosis of osteoblastoma-like osteosarcoma from osteoblastoma and aggressive osteoblastoma remains controversial and challenging. Previous studies suggest that these three types of tumor are distinct entities. However, working out a precise diagnosis may not always be possible immediately on the basis of initial clinical, radiological, and histopathological features. On the other hand, the importance of a correct diagnosis cannot be overemphasized since the treatment strategies change dramatically according to the nature of the lesion. In all of our cases, initial Tru-Cut biopsies revealed osteoblastic features with minimal atypia, but further biopsies confirmed malignancy. A high index of suspicion and considerable experience are prerequisites for accurate diagnosis in case of clinicopathological and radiological discordance.

We would like to make a comment on this well-designed study. For calculating body mass index (BMI, using arm span instead of height would be more accurate.2 Conditions such as kyphosis and asymptomatic vertebral fractures are commonly seen in elderly individuals (especially in frail ones, and calculation of BMI using height may result in overestimation of BMI in these circumstances. In this way, subjects with low BMI may be considered to have normal BMI, and this may result in underestimation of malnutrition, which is an important contributor to frailty phenotype.View original paper by Falsarella and colleagues.

This double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted at Fatih Sultan Mehmet Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey, from May to November 2015, and comprised patients undergoing endometrial biopsy with Pipelle. Intrauterine lidocaine infusion, paracervical block with lidocaine, intravenous tenoxicam or 4ml intravenous normal saline administered prior to biopsy. The main outcome measure was pain intensity immediately afterwards and 30minutes after biopsy, determined by a visual analogue scale score. Number Cruncher Statistical System 2007 was used for statistical analyses. Of the 232 participants, intrauterine lidocaine infusion group had 59(25.4%) patients, 57(24.6%) were controls while paracervical block group and intravenous tenoxicam group each had 58(25%) patients. Both visual analogue scale 0 and 30 scores of the control group were significantly higher than the other three groups (p<0.05). Also, the scores of intravenous tenoxicam group were significantly higher than both intrauterine lidocaine infusion and paracervical block with lidocaine groups (p<0.05 each). Intravenous tenoxicam had a significantly lower effect than intrauterine lidocaine infusion and paracervical block with lidocaine during the early period after the procedure.

    17th and 19th centuries were particularly important for the development of te Ottoman medicine. Westernization which had already started in the 17th century continued along the 19th and the early 20th centuries. Turkish physicians began to contact with their European colleagues and in this period Latin medical terminology began to appear in the Ottoman medical literature. Sirvanli Semseddin Itaki's work of the 17th century, the Teşrihü'l Ebdan ve Tercüman-i Kibale-i Feylesufan, is the first illustrated Turkish manuscript of anatomy. The illustrations are qualified as developed examples, compared with the medical literature and knowledge of the period. In the 19th century, Sanizade Mehmet Ataullah Efendi (1771-1826) wrote a modern book of anatomy for the Ottoman medical doctors. Miyarü'l Etibba was one of the earliest printed medical books in Turkish. The second volume of Sanizade's Hamse, Miratü'l Ebdan fi Tesrih-i-Azai'l Insan is the first printed Ottoman book on anatomy. In Usulü't-Tabia, the third volume of Hamse, the circulatory system is discussed. In this article, we studied the circulatory system described in Semseddin Itaki's Teşrih-ül Ebdan ve Tercüman-i-Kibale-i Feylesufan and in Sanizade's Usulü't-Tabia and compared them.

    Full Text Available Haghia Sophia is a small Church located to the North East of Turkey. Because of its dimensions when compared with Haghia Sophia in Istanbul it is called also “Small Haghia Sophia”. When Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror added Trabzon in the Ottoman Borders, He converted the main cathedral of city into a Mosque. However, he did not converted Haghia Sophia into a Mosque though it was the most beautiful building of Comnens. About one hundred years after the conquest, Haghia Sophia was converted into a mosque after it served as a church over 300 years and used as a mosque until the Russian occupation in 1916. The period of usage as a mosque was longer than that as a church. After the foundation of modern Turkish Republic, Haghia Sophia continued to be used as a mosque for a while, and all frescos during this time were under white wash except some cleaned by Russian Archeologist Uspensky during Russian Occupation. The most beautiful carvings of Haghia Sophia are placed on the southern narthex, the frizzes showing the creation of Adam and Eva. The Bell Tower about 200 years younger than the main complex also includes elaborate paintings in the small cell at the middle.

    Full Text Available The 14th Olympic Games in London that could not be held in 1940 and 1944 due to the World War II became a milestone in the history of the Turkish sport with the success of the Turkish wrestlers. The London Olympics in which the Turkish national team got the sixth place among 59 countries by winning 12 medals had widespread media coverage in the Turkish press. The success of the Turkish wrestlers in the Olympics made a nation, which did not enter the war but was exceedingly affected both politically and economically and the face of which did not smile for years burst into joy. That Nasuh Akar won the gold medal in freestyle, Gazanfer Bilge, Celal Atik, and Yaşar Doğu, Greco-roman Mehmet Oktav and Ahmet Kireççi from Mersin won the gold medal in the Olympics was announced under the headlines of “we became world champion” on the front pages of the newspapers. The newspapers sent reporters to London to follow the Olympics and conveyed the developments day by day with photographs. The fixtures of the Turkish wrestlers that ended with a victory were narrated with minute details. Hürriyet newspaper, which sent a photojournalist to London, tripled its circulation with its publications on the Olympics. In this study, the news, commentaries, and photos related to the 1948 London Olympics in Akşam, Cumhuriyet, Hürriyet, Vatan, and Ulus newspapers are examined.

The testing sample has been defined as a sample taken out of the researched middle school students such from Gymansium ‘Zenel Hajdini’ Middle School of Economy ‘Marin Barleti’ and Middle Technical School ‘Mehmet Isai’ from Gjilan. In this sample 263 female students have been included aged 18 (six months older or younger. Out of the same number of students of male gender aged 18 (six months older or younger form the same middle schools in the same measuring conditions, an investigation has been done in 1991 by the same author. Twelve anthropometric variables have been used. The T-test has been applied in order to certify weather it does or does not exist difference between the groups’ measures done in 2011 and the group of students in 1991. Considering the arithmetic average results of each variable the results are quite obvious particularly with the first group measured in 2011. The biggest difference has bee noticed with the measures in terms of body length, extremities and measures for assessing body weight.

    There is a consistent pre-occupation in the research literature on emissions trading with what configurations of trading arrangements are likely to be economically efficient both statically and dynamically, and - to a lesser extent - what is likely to be fair - who are the winners and the losers. Issues of environmental effectiveness are also addressed in this context. Conversely, amongst the policy practitioners, there is little overt interest in economic efficiency, and not much treatment of fairness. There is a strong interest in implementability, and in environmental effectiveness. The presentations at the workshops reflected these parallel pre-occupations, and attempts were made by some to make a bridge between them. In this paper we review some of the papers and associated other literature that address these issues in political economy, with a particular emphasis on insights emerging as regards competitiveness, co-operation and market power. Much of the relevant research emerging at the workshops was animated by either ex post analysis of existing programmes, or an ex ante analysis of 'new' emissions trading proposals, such as the proposal by the European Commission for a European Union (EU) wide scheme. At our first workshop in Venice, in December 2001, Zapfel and Vainio (2001) presented a paper - 'Pathways to European Greenhouse Gas Emission Trading' - which mapped the at times surprising evolution of the emissions trading idea in Europe, the misconceptions that in the past and still to this day complicate progress, and conclude with a presentation of a coherent case for the creation of an EU wide greenhouse gas emissions trading scheme. They both work with the European Commission in DG Environment, and continue to be heavily involved in moving the emissions trading agenda forward. The Commission had released its proposals just two months earlier, in October 2001, following an intensive consultation process. This co-incidence of occurrence of the initiation

A previous meta-analysis demonstrated that the risk of certain complications can be reduced with the Harmonic technology compared with conventional methods in mastectomy. However, the meta-analysis did not include studies of BCS patients and focused on a subset of surgical complications. The objective of this study was to compare Harmonic technology and conventional techniques for a range of clinical outcomes and complications in both mastectomy and BCS patients, including axillary lymph node dissection.Methods: A comprehensive literature search was performed for randomized controlled trials comparing Harmonic technology and conventional methods in breast cancer surgery. Outcome measures included blood loss, drainage volume, total complications, seroma, necrosis, wound infections, ecchymosis, hematoma, hospital length of stay, and operating time. Risk of bias was analyzed for all studies. Meta-analysis was performed using random-effects models for mean differences of continuous variables and a fixed-effects model for risk ratios of dichotomous variables.Results: Twelve studies met the inclusion criteria. Across surgery types, compared to conventional techniques, Harmonic technology reduced total complications by 52% (P=0.002, seroma by 46% (P<0.0001, necrosis by 49% (P=0.04, postoperative chest wall drainage by 46% (P=0.0005, blood loss by 38% (P=0.0005, and length of stay by 22% (P=0.007. Although benefits generally appeared greatest in mastectomy patients with lymph node dissection, ­Harmonic technology showed significant reductions in complications in the BCS study subgroup.Conclusion: In this meta-analysis of both mastectomy and

Therapeutic keratoplasty for infective keratitis is a frequently performed surgery in these countries.Objective: To find out the outcome of therapeutic keratoplasty for infective keratitis.Methods: Records of 5 years were reviewed of patients who underwent therapeutic keratoplasty from 2006 to 2010. Data collected included demographic parameters, indications for surgery, microbiology of the ulcers, type of surgery performed, and donor tissue details. In the follow-up period, ocular status was evaluated in terms of eradication of disease, anatomic success, graft clarity, visual acuity, and development of glaucoma and cataract.Results: In all, 180 eyes of 180 patients were enrolled in the study; 59.4% of the patients were male. Average age was 44.4±16.7 years. Overall, 71% of infective keratitis was perforated. A total of 101 (56% eyes were positive for organisms of which 49 showed pure fungus and 49 showed pure bacteria. The commonest fungus and bacteria isolated were Aspergillus and Streptococcus, respectively. Average follow-up period was 29±23 months. Overall cure rate of infection was 88.8%, anatomical success rate was 89.5%, and graft clarity was 37.2%. Overall, 43.4% had secondary glaucoma. In the postoperative course, 65.8% of phakic eyes had developed cataract. In all, 38.6% of graft had endothelial failure and 24% of the graft failed due to late infective keratitis. Overall functional success with a visual acuity above 6/60 was 25.4%. Bacterial keratitis had a significantly higher cure rate, anatomical success, and graft clarity compared to fungal keratitis.Conclusion: Therapeutic keratoplasty is an important procedure to save the eye and preserve vision in severe infective keratitis. There is a high incidence of postoperative glaucoma

It may be found as monomers (A and B and or as a dimer (AB. hPR is regarded as the prognostic biomarker for breast cancer. In a cellular dimer system, AB is the dominant species in most cases. However, when a cell coexpresses all three isoforms of hPR, the complexity of the action of this receptor increases. For example, hPR A suppresses the activity of hPR B, and the ratio of hPR A to hPR B may determine the physiology of a breast tumor. Also, persistent exposure of hPRs to nonendogenous ligands is a common risk factor for breast cancer. Hence we aimed to study progesterone and some nonendogenous ligand interactions with hPRs and their molecular docking.Methods and results: A pool of steroid derivatives, namely, progesterone, cholesterol, testosterone, testolectone, estradiol, estrone, norethindrone, exemestane, and norgestrel, was used for this in silico study. Dockings were performed on AutoDock 4.2. We found that estrogens, including estradiol and estrone, had a higher affinity for hPR A and B monomers in comparison with the dimer, hPR AB, and that of the endogenous progesterone ligand. hPR A had a higher affinity to all the docked ligands than hPR B.Conclusion: This study suggests that the exposure of estrogens to hPR A as well as hPR B, and more

    Full Text Available As it is known, one of the significant issues of Divan Literature is the issue of annotating a text. Especially, the lack of a common method in traditional text annotations led many researchers to the quest of new methods. Such names as Ali Nihat Tarlan, Haluk İpekten, Cem Dilçin, Tunca Kortantamer not only attached importance to traditional text annotation but also did studies that fed from our present time literary theories and supported studies in this context. Studies on modern text analysis have not become widespread in the field of classical Turkish Literature. Thus the Classical Turkish Literature was unable to form an "annotation method" applied in text annotation studies using together the traditional and modern approaches. Poem analysis method that began with Mehmet Kaplan in the field of New Turkish Literature continues with new searches in our present time. One of the names that continue these searches is Prof. Dr. Nurullah Çetin “The Poem Analysis Method" suggested by him will be applied on a ghazal of Hafız and the method in question will be carried out.

In such research, oxidative and antioxidant indicators of etiopathogenesis have also been examined under the scope. Drawing on a group of patients with epilepsy who were receiving no treatment, we have tried to evaluate whether or not an increase in oxidative indicators is linked directly with the disorder, independent of epileptic medicaments.Methods: Thirty people in good health and 30 newly diagnosed with epilepsy and who received ambulatory treatment in the polyclinic of the Neurology Department took part in the study. The tests relating to serum malondialdehyde (MDA levels and paraoxonase 1 (PON1 activity were carried out in the biochemistry laboratory.Results: Even though the levels of MDA in the patient group (14.34±3.59 nmol/mL were found to be high compared to those of the control group, which consisted of people in good health (13.53±3.56 nmol/mL, there was no statistically significant difference. PON1 activity in the serum taken from people in the patient group (0.65±0.17 was lower in comparison to that observed in the serum of the control group (0.71±0.17 U/L. Nonetheless, it was not so low as to have significance from a statistical point of view.Conclusion: We conclude that such a high level of oxidative parameters should have been related to the disease and that statistically significant findings that emerged in some other studies could have been related to an antiepileptic treatment.

    Objective: To compare the status of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) between women with a history of previous gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and those with follow-up of a healthy pregnancy, using the female sexual function index (FSFI) questionnaire. Study Design: Cross-sectional study. Place and Duration of Study: Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Fatih Sultan Mehmet Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey, from September to December 2015. Methodology: Healthy sexually active adult parous females were included. Participants were asked to complete the validated Turkish versions of the FSFI and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) questionnaires. Student's t-test was used for two-group comparisons of normally distributed variables and quantitative data. Mann-Whitney U-test was used for two-group comparisons of non-normally distributed variables. Pearson's chi-squared test, the Fisher-Freeman-Halton test, Fisher's exact test, and Yates' continuity correction test were used for comparison of qualitative data. Results: The mean FSFI scores of the 179 participants was 23.50 +- 3.94. FSFI scores and scores of desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, satisfaction, and pain were not statistically significantly different (p>0.05), according to a history of GDM and types of FSD (none, mild, severe). HADS scores and anxiety and depression types did not statistically significantly differ according to the history of GDM (p>0.05). Conclusion: An association could not be found in FSFI scores between participants with both the history of previous GDM and with healthy pregnancy; subclinical sexual dysfunction may be observed in the late postpartum period among women with a history of previous GDM. This may adversely affect their sexual health. (author)

    Full Text Available Fatih Abut, Mehmet Fatih AkayDepartment of Computer Engineering, Çukurova University, Adana, TurkeyAbstract: Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max indicates how many milliliters of oxygen the body can consume in a state of intense exercise per minute. VO2max plays an important role in both sport and medical sciences for different purposes, such as indicating the endurance capacity of athletes or serving as a metric in estimating the disease risk of a person. In general, the direct measurement of VO2max provides the most accurate assessment of aerobic power. However, despite a high level of accuracy, practical limitations associated with the direct measurement of VO2max, such as the requirement of expensive and sophisticated laboratory equipment or trained staff, have led to the development of various regression models for predicting VO2max. Consequently, a lot of studies have been conducted in the last years to predict VO2max of various target audiences, ranging from soccer athletes, nonexpert swimmers, cross-country skiers to healthy-fit adults, teenagers, and children. Numerous prediction models have been developed using different sets of predictor variables and a variety of machine learning and statistical methods, including support vector machine, multilayer perceptron, general regression neural network, and multiple linear regression. The purpose of this study is to give a detailed overview about the data-driven modeling studies for the prediction of VO2max conducted in recent years and to compare the performance of various VO2max prediction models reported in related literature in terms of two well-known metrics, namely, multiple correlation coefficient (R and standard error of estimate. The survey results reveal that with respect to regression methods used to develop prediction models, support vector machine, in general, shows better performance than other methods, whereas multiple linear regression exhibits the worst performance

  19. The Problem of Homosexuality: Desire-in-Uneasiness, Friendship, Family, Freedom

    Full Text Available Zenne Dancer is a 2011 Turkish film written by Caner Alper and directed by Alper and Mehmet Binay. It is inspired by the story of Ahmet Yildiz, a gay Kurdish Turk allegedly murdered by his father in 2008 for dishonoring his family. Through its depiction of the unlikely friendship between three men, the film addresses the problem of homosexuality, the desire-in-uneasiness evoked by men being together, and the complex social structures of honor killings. In its address of honor killings, Zenne Dancer follows in a prestigious line of some of the best of Turkish and world cinema. Importantly, though, there are differences here as Zenne Dancer reimagines the relationships involved in crimes of honor. First, Zenne Dancer deploys the story of a father killing his son, rather than his daughter, to save the family honor, which is threatened by homosexual desire rather than the loss of virginity or illegitimate pregnancy. Second, rather than pitting the modern state against religion, tradition, or pre-modern culture, Zenne Dancer’s critique of honor killing implicates both the police and the military in the violence done in the name of tradition (not religion. Islam plays a much smaller part than economic deprivation or the trauma of war in this film. Third, the film complicates gendered expectations through its deployment of female characters—mothers, sisters, lovers—who all have their own relationships with and perspectives on these men. The film depicts heteropatriarchy as a system harmful to women and men and shows men and women enforcing and resisting that harm. In the end, Zenne Dancer connects these thematic concerns through a mixture of realist story, dance video, daydream, fairytale, and melodrama in a film ultimately concerned with the care of the self and the meaning of liberation. Thus, it resists falling into fictional “realist anthropology” or simplistic assertions of repression in confronting the complexities of honor killings

Questionnaires were given to dentists who attended the 16th National Congress organized by the Turkish Dental Association. From 1,400 questionnaires distributed, 589 (43% were deemed usable in this study. This survey dealt with questions that were subdivided into two main topics: dental emergency treatment approaches, and antibiotic prescription and information on lifelong learning program participation. The statistical analysis was conducted with a Χ2 test at a significance level of P<0.05. For irreversible pulpitis cases in vital teeth, most of the dental practitioners (65.3% preferred single-visit root canal treatments. For teeth presenting a periapical lesion, the preferred treatment approach was root canal treatment (91.5%. The rate of prescription of analgesics and antibiotics was 21.7% in untreated acute apical periodontitis cases and 41% in acute apical abscess cases. Frequently prescribed antibiotics were amoxicillin–clavulanate (61.8% and amoxicillin (46.5%. There was a tendency for practitioners to attend congresses as their years of professional practice increased (P<0.0001. There have been discrepancies between taught and observed practice. Educational initiatives are needed to prevent inappropriate prescription of antibiotics.Keywords: antibiotic prescription, endodontic emergency, survey, Turkey

A number of different conditions may be associated with the development of brainstem infarction. Prognosis and recurrence rate of brainstem infarction due to large-artery atherothrombosis is still controversial. Methods: A total of 826 patients with ischemic stroke were admitted to our clinic during a 15-month period. Patients with clinical and radiological evidence of brainstem infarction were comprehensively assessed with appropriate vascular imaging modalities and for cardiological causes. Subjects with an established diagnosis of large-artery atherothrombosis were followed up for 1 year in terms of prognosis and recurrence rates. Results: Of the 101 patients with an established brainstem infarction, the diagnostic work-up indicated the presence of large-artery atherothrombosis as the causative factor in 53. A recurrent stroke was detected in the posterior circulation within the first 3 months in 5.8% and within 1 year in 9.8% of these individuals. The 1-year mortality rate was 11.7%. All patients with recurrent stroke had intracranial vascular narrowing at baseline. Conclusion: Our findings demonstrate a particularly high rate of recurrence and mortality at 1 year among patients who have a brainstem infarction due to intracranial arterial stenosis.

    To compare the status of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) between women with a history of previous gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and those with follow-up of a healthy pregnancy, using the female sexual function index (FSFI) questionnaire. Cross-sectional study. Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Fatih Sultan Mehmet Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey, from September to December 2015. Healthy sexually active adult parous females were included. Participants were asked to complete the validated Turkish versions of the FSFI and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) questionnaires. Student's t-test was used for two-group comparisons of normally distributed variables and quantitative data. Mann-Whitney U-test was used for two-group comparisons of non-normally distributed variables. Pearson's chi-squared test, the Fisher-FreemanHalton test, Fisher's exact test, and Yates' continuity correction test were used for comparison of qualitative data. The mean FSFI scores of the 179 participants was 23.50 ±3.94. FSFI scores and scores of desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, satisfaction, and pain were not statistically significantly different (p>0.05), according to a history of GDM and types of FSD (none, mild, severe). HADS scores and anxiety and depression types did not statistically significantly differ according to the history of GDM (p>0.05). An association could not be found in FSFI scores between participants with both the history of previous GDM and with healthy pregnancy; subclinical sexual dysfunction may be observed in the late postpartum period among women with a history of previous GDM. This may adversely affect their sexual health.

We present a 34-year old hemodialysis patient with new onset of uncontrolled hypertension, erythropoietin-resistant anemia, thrombocytopenia, and Bell’s palsy. On admission, his blood pressure (BP was 210/110 mmHg and he had petechiae and purpura at upper and lower extremities. Renal ultrasonography (USG showed bilaterally enlarged kidneys without hydronephrosis, unlike his previous USG, which determined bilaterally atrophic kidneys. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia, hypertensive crisis due to bilateral leukemic cell infiltration of kidneys, tumor lysis syndrome, and leukemic involvement of the facial nerve were diagnosed. Despite intense antihypertensive management, his BP was not controlled. After prednisolone, daunorubicine, and vincristine therapy, the size of kidneys diminished and his BP dropped under normal range. In conclusion, pathological findings such as uncontrolled hypertension, flank pain, skin rashes, and abnormal blood count should be considered carefully, even in patients with end-stage renal disease receiving renal replacement therapy.Keywords: leukemic cell infiltration, uncontrolled hypertension, hemodialysis

Participants were 50 second grade learners in the English Language Teaching Departments of Hacettepe University (N=10, Mehmet Akif Ersoy University (N=10, and Uludag University (N=30 who had already taken courses about learner autonomy.  The data were collected by means of a questionnaire which had two Likert-scale sections and an open-ended questions section. The first Likert-scale section contained 15 characteristics of autonomous learners each of which was rated by the participants in a scale from strongly disagree to agree, from 1 to 5. In the second Likert-scale section, the participants were asked to rate the Turkish education system’s five basic elements such as school curriculums, course materials, approaches used by the teachers in classrooms, learning activities, and classroom settings. Additionally, learners’ opinions about their awareness and understanding of learner autonomy were gathered by five open ended questions. The results proposed that the participants were aware of learner autonomy, and had the characteristics of autonomous learners. On the other hand, results showed that the Turkish education system was not suitable for autonomous learners and did not foster learner autonomy. The findings suggested that the Turkish education system should be designed again in such a way to support the autonomous learners and to foster learner autonomy in all sections of the education.

The objectives of this study were to compare the efficacy of etofenamate versus hyaluronic acid (HA in reducing joint pain and functional improvement for mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis. The patients were randomly divided into etofenamate (n=29 and HA (n=30 groups. Intramuscular etofenamate injection was administered as a series of seven intramuscular injections at intervals of 1 day. Intra-articular HA injection was administered as a series of three intra-articular injections at intervals of 1 week. Clinical evaluation was made before the first injection and again both 6 and 12 months after the last injection. The evaluation consisted of patient-assessed pain on a visual analog scale (VAS and on the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC. Statistical significance was found for the etofenamate group when comparing preinjection with 12 months postinjection VAS scores (P<0.05. Statistical significance was also found for the HA group when comparing preinjection with 12 months postinjection VAS and WOMAC scores (P<0.05. However, there was no significant difference between the etofenamate and HA groups in terms of VAS or WOMAC scores measured at 12 months after injection (P>0.05. Results from this study indicated that, etofenamate treatment was not significantly more effective than HA treatment. However, both methods were effective and successful in treating knee osteoarthritis. Keywords: knee osteoarthritis, arthralgia, treatment, etofenamate, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

    Full Text Available Turkısh literature completes a long period effected by İslamic culture and cıvılızatıon in 19th century when it has tendency to west. Like empire, poets and writers also focus on west. They benefits from west in terms of literature and culture. In this way, they realize innovations in the field of literature and culture as beuracracy realizes in military, financial, administrative and maarif fields. This group of people who interest in the private journal sector in cultural field, French literature styles in literature and some sozcial topics evaluate “west issue” in the perspective of current political and social developments. In this context, Tevfik Fikret is in the favour of extention of borders related to westernism. He thinks of adopting west not only in terms of science, art and techniques but also in all social institutions. With the awakening of nation and nationalism, in the perod of National Literature emerging after II. Mesrutiyet besides the rejection of westernism (alafranga, westernism called civilization (muasırlaşma is also emphized. In this article west is evaluated from the point of view of Ziya Gökalp. According to Ziya Gökalp, west is a civilization circle which should be included in. Turkısh people should take their place in this circle by protecting national culture. Mehmet Akif, living in the same period and follwing Islamic style in his works, emphasizes that there should be limitations on the ınnovations taken from west. According to M. Akif, west can only be a model only in terms of science, art and technique. After 1912, M. Akif criticises west more severely

The participants were examined by single-voxel 1H MRS when medication naïve and 30 minutes after oral administration of 10 mg methylphenidate (Mph. Those who had been on a stimulant discontinued the medication 48 hours before MRS imaging. Spectra were taken from the anterior cingulate cortex, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, striatum, and cerebellum, and N-acetylaspartate (NAA, choline, and creatine levels were examined. For genotyping of the synapsin III gene polymorphisms, DNA was isolated from peripheral blood leukocytes. The effects of age, sex, and ADHD subtypes were controlled in the analyses.Results: After a single dose of Mph, choline levels increased significantly in the striatum of rs133945G>A polymorphism-GG genotypes (P=0.020 and NAA levels rose in the anterior cingulate cortex of rs133946C>G polymorphism-CG genotypes (P=0.014.

Pre- and postoperative macular examinations were assessed with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography. 23 G sutureless PPV and ILM peeling with BB was performed on all patients.Results: The mean age of patients was 63.34 ± 9.6 years. Stage 2 macular hole was determined in 17 eyes (34%, stage 3 in 24 eyes (48%, and stage 4 in 9 eyes (18%. The mean follow-up time was 13.6 ± 1.09 months. Anatomic closure was detected in 46/50 eyes (92%, whereas, in four cases, macular hole persisted and a second operation was not required due to subretinal fluid drainage. At follow-up after 2 months, persistant macular hole was detected in one case and it was closed with reoperation. At 12 months, an increase in visual acuity in 41 eyes was observed, while it remained at the same level in six eyes. In three eyes visual acuity decreased. There was a postoperative statistically significant increase in visual acuity in stage 2 and 3 cases (P < 0.05, however, no increase in visual acuity in stage 4 cases was observed.Conclusion: PPV and ILM peeling in stage 2, 3, and 4 macular hole cases provide successful anatomic outcomes, however, in delayed cases, due to photoreceptor loss, it has no effect on functional recovery. BB, used for clarity of ILM, may be beneficial due to its low retinal toxicity.Keywords: macular

Elderly ESRD patients have been found to be more prone to depression than the general population. There are many studies that have addressed the relationship between sleep quality (SQ, depression, and health related quality of life (HRQoL in ESRD patients, but previous studies have not confirmed the association in elderly hemodialysis (HD patients. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to demonstrate this relationship in elderly HD patients.Patients and methods: Sixty-three elderly HD patients (32 females and 31 males aged between 65 and 89 years were included in this cross-sectional study. A modified Post-Sleep Inventory (PSI, the Medical Outcomes Study 36-item short form health survey, and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI were applied.Results: The prevalence of poor sleepers (those with a PSI total sleep score [PSI-4 score] of 4 or higher was 71% (45/63, and the prevalence of depression was 25% (16/63. Of the 45 poor sleepers, 15 had depression, defined as a BDI score of 17 or higher. Poor sleepers had a significantly higher rate of diabetes mellitus (P = 0.03, significantly higher total BDI scores, and lower Physical Component Scale scores (ie, lower HRQoL than good sleepers. The PSI-4 score correlated negatively with Physical Component Scale (r = −0.500, P < 0.001 and Mental Component Scale

As such, vitamin C deficiency leads to serious complications, including vascular diseases. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of vitamin C treatment on collar-induced intimal thickening. Rabbits were fed a normocholesterolemic diet and a non-occlusive silicon collar was placed around the left carotid artery for 3, 7, and 14 days. The rabbits were treated with or without vitamin C (150 mg/kg/day. Collar-induced intimal thickening became apparent at day 7. The effect of the collar on intimal thickening was more prominent at day 14. Vitamin C treatment significantly inhibited collar-induced intimal thickening at day 14. The placement of the collar around the carotid artery decreased maximum contractile responses against contractile agents (KCl, phenylephrine, 5-hydroxytryptamine. The effect of the collar on contractile responses was enhanced as days elapsed. Decreased contractile responses of collared carotid arteries normalized at day 14 in the vitamin C treatment group. Vitamin C treatment also restored sensitivity to phenylephrine. The collar also significantly decreased acetylcholine-induced relaxations at day 3 and day 7. Acetylcholine-induced relaxations normalized in collared-arteries in the placebo group at day 14. Vitamin C treatment significantly increased acetylcholine-induced relaxations of both normal and collared carotid arteries at day 14. MMP-9 expression increased in collared arteries at day 3 and day 7 but did not change at day 14. MMP-2 expression increased in collared arteries at day 14. However, vitamin C treatment reduced collar

Beneficial and adverse effects on other organ systems, including the cardiovascular system, have also been described and could impact on the use of bisphosphonates as therapeutic agents. Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs are major constituents of the normal vascular wall and have a key role in intimal thickening and atherosclerosis, in part by secreting MMPs that remodel the extracellular matrix and cleave cell surface proteins or secreted mediators. In this study, we investigated the effects of zoledronate on MMP expression.Methods: Rat VSMCs were stimulated by PDGF (50 ng/mL plus TNF-α (10 ng/mL or left unstimulated for a further 24 hours in serum-free medium. In other series of experiments, cells were pre-treated either with SC-514 (50 µM or with apocynin (20 nM for 2 hours, then zoledronate (100 µM was added into 2% fetal calf serum containing medium for 24 hours.Results and discussion: Using isolated rat VSMCs in culture, zoledronate (100 µM increased MMP-9 and -13 mRNA expressions but inhibited MMP-2 expression. MMP-9 and MMP-13 up-regulation was shown to depend on the NF-κB pathway; and this was activated by zoledronate. Furthermore, zoledronate elevated the levels of reactive oxygen species detected by either dichlorofluorescein in isolated VSMCs or lucigenin enhanced chemiluminescence in rat aortic rings in vitro. Apocynin, an inhibitor of NADPH oxidase, reversed NF-κB activation and MMP-9 and MMP-13 up-regulation by

The primary outcomes were severity of depression, measured using the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HAM-D and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI; chronotype, measured using the Morningness Eveningness Questionnaire (MEQ; mood disturbance, measured using the Profile of Mood States (POMS survey; and sleep quality, measured using the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI, before and after treatment in both groups.Results: All patients completed the study, and none reported obvious side effects. The mean onset age of depression was 26.1 years ± 5.3 years in the BLT group and 27 years ± 9.5 years in the SSRI + BLT group (P = 0.425. The number of past depressive episodes was 1.29 ± 0.76 in the BLT group, and 1.5 ± 0.8 in the SSRI + BLT group (P = 0.427. The difference between pre- and posttreatment scores revealed no significant difference between groups for the HAM-D scale, BDI, MEQ, POMS survey, and the PSQI.Conclusion: This study suggests that BLT is effective with respect to the severity of depression, circadian rhythms, mood disturbance, and sleep quality, in non-seasonal depression. However, there was no evidence in favor of adjunctive fluoxetine with BLT

Materials and methods: In order to induce ovarian cysts, unilateral total salpingectomy was performed in regularly menstruating adult female Wistar albino rats (n=20 between 12 and 14 weeks of age and weighing between 200 and 220 g. One month after the procedure, the abdominal cavity was opened and 14 rats (70% were found to have developed macroscopic cysts. Rats with macroscopic cysts (n=14 were assigned into two groups in a prospective and single-blinded manner: group 1 (G1 (n=7, control rats; and group 2 (G2 (n=7, 5-minute EST 95% group. Cyst diameter was measured and recorded for each rat. In G2, after whole cyst fluid was aspirated the cystic cavity was irrigated with 95% ethanol, approximately equal to half of the aspirated cyst volume, after which an interval of 5 minutes was allowed and same amount was re-aspirated and the abdominal cavity was closed. One month after this procedure, abdominal cavities were reopened and intra-abdominal adhesion scoring was performed in both groups. Cyst diameter was measured for each rat, and the right ovary was removed, fixed in 10% formaldehyde, and transported to the laboratory. A histologic assessment of the ovarian tissues was performed under light microscopy following staining with hematoxylin and eosin. Mann–Whitney U-test was used for statistical analysis. A P-level less than 0.05 was considered significant. Results

Varenicline is widely used worldwide to help smoking cessation, but some published studies have reported associated cardiovascular events.Objective: To determine the cardiovascular toxicity induced by varenicline in rats.Materials and methods: We randomly separated 34 rats into two groups: 1 the control group (given only distilled water orally, n=10 and the varenicline group (given 9 µg/kg/day varenicline on days 1–3, 9 µg/kg twice daily on days 4–7, and 18 µg/kg twice daily on days 8–90 [total 83 days], n=24. Each group was then subdivided equally into acute and chronic subgroups, and all rats in these groups were euthanized with anesthesia overdose on days 45 and 90, respectively. Body and heart weights, hemodynamic (mean oxygen saturation, mean blood pressure, and heart rate, electrocardiographic (PR, QRS, and QT intervals biochemical (oxidants and antioxidants, and histopathological analyses (including immunostaining were performed.Results: Acute varenicline exposure resulted in loss of body weight, while chronic varenicline exposure caused heart weight loss and decreased mean blood pressure, induced lipid peroxidation, and reduced antioxidant activity. Both acute and chronic varenicline exposure caused impairment of mean oxygen saturation. QT interval was prolonged in the chronic varenicline group, while PR interval

In the present study, MPV in patients with coronary slow flow (CSF and in cases with normal coronary anatomy (NCA was investigated and compared with the aim of identifying the relationship between CSF and MPV. Patients and methods: We studied 40 patients previously determined via coronary angiography as having NCA and 40 patients with CSF in the coronary blood stream, as identified by thrombolysis in myocardial infarction square. Thus, a total of 80 patients from the Elaziğ Education and Research Hospital (Elaziğ, Turkey were included in the present study retrospectively and laboratory and anamnesis information was scanned into their files. The relationship between MPV and CSF was studied. Results: MPV levels were observed to be significantly higher in the CSF group compared to the NCA group (10.05±1.3 and 8.6±0.6, p<0.001. In receiver operating characteristics analyses, it was determined that an MPV >9.05 measured in CSF patients at application had a predictive specificity of 77.5% and sensitivity of 77.5% for CSF (area under the curve: 0.825, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.726–0.924, p<0.0001. It was found that MPV level was an independent predictor of CSF (β=−600, p<0.001, 95% CI: −0.383 to −0.176. Conclusion: MPV is increased in patients with CSF when compared to patients with NCA. This finding supports the fact that MPV could be a predictor of CSF. Keywords: coronary slow flow, mean platelet volume, atherosclerosis

Apart from ethical considerations, the selection and amplification of donor stem cells remain a challenge. Various biopolymers with a wide range of properties have been used extensively to deliver biomolecules such as drugs, growth factors and nucleic acids, as well as to provide biomimetic surface for cellular adhesion. Using human tooth germ stem cells with high proliferation and transformation capacity, we have investigated a range of biopolymers to assess their potential for tissue engineering. Tolerability, toxicity, and their ability to direct differentiation were evaluated. The majority of pluronics, consisting of both hydrophilic and hydrophobic poly(ethylene oxide chains, either exerted cytotoxicity or had no significant effect on human tooth germ stem cells; whereas F68 increased the multi-potency of stem cells, and efficiently transformed them into osteogenic, chondrogenic, and adipogenic tissues. The data suggest that differentiation and maturation of stem cells can be promoted by selecting the appropriate mechanical and chemical

The effects of the approved epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (gefitinib or a multi-targeted kinase inhibitor (sorafenib in combination with a histone deacetylase inhibitor (vorinostat on cell proliferation, cell cycle distribution, apoptosis, and signaling pathway activation in human lung adenocarcinoma and hepatocarcinoma cells with wild-type EGFR and mutant KRAS were investigated. The effects of the synergistic drug combinations were also studied in human lung adenocarcinoma and hepatocarcinoma cells in vivo. The combination of gefitinib and vorinostat synergistically reduced cell growth and strongly induced apoptosis through inhibition of the insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor/protein kinase B (IGF-1R/AKT-dependent signaling pathway. Moreover, the gefitinib and vorinostat combination strongly inhibited tumor growth in mice with lung adenocarcinoma or hepatocarcinoma tumor xenografts. In contrast, the combination of sorafenib and vorinostat did not inhibit cell proliferation compared to a single treatment and induced G2/M cell cycle arrest without

  17. SUFISM IN TURKISH POETRY AFTER TANZİMAT PERIOD TANZİMAT SONRASI TÜRK ŞİİRİNDE TASAVVUF

    Full Text Available Until Tanzimat period, Sufism has an important place in Turkish poetry tradition. The importance of Sufism starts to diminish since the period of Tanzimat. Şinasi, Ziya Paşa and Namık Kemal's poems, which form the first period of Tanzimat, reveal a duality due to interaction between the existent Western ideas and the concept of Sufism. In the second period of Tanzimat, the influence of Sufism starts fade out in poetry. In Recaizade M. Ekrem's poems, the concepts of Sufism point to the pantheism, where in Abdulhak Hamid's poems, they point to the metaphysical fear. With Servet-i Funun poems, the concepts in Sufism are emptied, and they are filled with opposite ideas. Cenab Sahabeddin does this with an agnostic attitude, and Tevfik Fikret does it with the attitude of an unbeliever. Constitutional Monarchy era poems seem to be in a different attitude about Sufisim. This situation shows that Sufism is no longer a common ground in Turkish poetry. Riza Tevfik follows the foot steps of Abdulhak Hamid and Tevfik Fikret. Because it represents the national past, Yahya Kemal includes Sufism in his poems to revive the past. Mehmet Akif, as a poet committed to the Islamic Mysticism, includes Sufism directly in the initial and the final stages of his poems, and indirectly for the rest of it. The concepts of Sufism are taken off from the content of poetry in the Republic era of Turkey. In a sense, Necip Fazil allows the revival of Sufism in his poems. It is seen that Asaf Halet Celebi, and espeically, Sezai Karakoc have taken this revival to more advanced stages. The form in these poets' poems is new, however they contain the concepts of Sufism. Albeit, Sufism has become animportant integral part of the content of Turkish poetry although it is partial.

    Soil structure, understood as the spatial arrangement of soil pores, is one of the key factors in soil modelling processes. Geometric properties of individual and interpretation of the morphological parameters of pores can be estimated from thin sections or 3D Computed Tomography images (Tarquis et al., 2003), but there is no satisfactory method to binarized these images and quantify the complexity of their spatial arrangement (Tarquis et al., 2008, Tarquis et al., 2009; Baveye et al., 2010). The objective of this work was to apply a multifractal technique, their singularities (α) and f(α) spectra, to quantify it without applying any threshold (Gónzalez-Torres, 2014). Intact soil samples were collected from four horizons of an Argisol, formed on the Tertiary Barreiras group of formations in Pernambuco state, Brazil (Itapirema Experimental Station). The natural vegetation of the region is tropical, coastal rainforest. From each horizon, showing different porosities and spatial arrangements, three adjacent samples were taken having a set of twelve samples. The intact soil samples were imaged using an EVS (now GE Medical. London, Canada) MS-8 MicroCT scanner with 45 μm pixel-1 resolution (256x256 pixels). Though some samples required paring to fit the 64 mm diameter imaging tubes, field orientation was maintained. References Baveye, P.C., M. Laba, W. Otten, L. Bouckaert, P. Dello, R.R. Goswami, D.

The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationships between blood pressure, blood glucose, and bone mineral density (BMD in postmenopausal Turkish women.Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 270 consecutive patients who were admitted to an outpatient clinic with vasomotor symptoms and/or at least 1 year of amenorrhea were included. The patients were categorized into three groups according to their blood pressure and metabolic status as follows: normotensive, hypertensive nondiabetics, and hypertensive diabetics. The T- and z-scores of the proximal femur and lumbar vertebrae were measured with the dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry method to assess the BMD of the study groups.Results: Lumbar vertebral T-scores (P<0.001, lumbar vertebral z-scores (P<0.003, and proximal femoral T-scores (P<0.001 were demonstrated to be significantly lower in the hypertensive diabetic group compared to the hypertensive nondiabetic and normotensive groups. Systolic blood pressure was significantly inversely correlated with lumbar vertebral T-scores (r=-0.382; P=0.001, lumbar vertebral z-scores (r=-0.290; P=0.001, and

We evaluated the establisments and first activities of “Ocak” from the news of some newspapers we could obtain which had been published in Niğde. It was impossible to find a full collection of Niğde newspapers in libraries and archives. So, no researches were made about the activities and establishment of “Niğde Türk Ocağı”. It was possible to mark the activities and establishment of “Ocak” from the newspapers and documents that we could obtain by Mehmet Yılmaz Savaşçın who was the son of selected chairman of “Niğde Türk Ocağı” in 1925 Hasan Hüsnü (Savaşçın.According to documents and newspapers we had, “Niğde Türk Ocağı” was established at September 1924. First chairman of administrative board was C. Şehabeddin (Tüzün. There is a misbelief about this person for he can be the famous poet C. Şehabeddin. But in this study it was discovered that Şehabeddin had worked as lawyer in Niğde. The administrative board changed at the congress in January 9 1925 after Şehabettin Bey’s short (about six months regimen. Hasan Hüsnü (Savaşçın was selected as the chairman of second administrative board. According to identity certificate which was only for members of “Türk Ocakları” the first numbered member was Hüsnü Bey. Hüsnü Bey had organized and functionalized the “Ocak” in a short time. “Niğde Türk Ocağı” supported to cultural life of Niğde with its activities. The establishment and first activities of “Niğde Türk Ocağı” was evaluated for the first time by our limited documents.

    Gomera cross profile and the Icelandic debris flow compare well to the Mars example in terms of wall-slope and channel shape. The longitudinal profiles are all concave, showing the influence of water on the slope profile. Hillslope profiles influenced by creep are convex up and hillslope profiles and talus slope [8] profiles (formed by mass wasting and rockfall) are of constant gradient (once equilibrium is reached). Ephemeral gullies tend to follow the shape of the hillslope on which they form for the majority of their length [9], as shown by our data from La Gomera. Hence, as hillslope debris flows tend to produce a slightly concave profile [10, 11], as shown in our examples, this seems the best fit for the martian data. Ephemeral gullies are usually v- or square bottomed [12, 13], the La Gomera examples we studied falling into the latter category. However the martian cross-profiles fit better with the examples from Iceland, as there is a suggestion of levees present in some of the Mars examples. Our results tentatively suggest, based on the morphology alone, that debris flow is a plausible mechanism for forming martian gullies. Future work will include analysis of whether there is a slope-area threshold for initiation of incision for martian gullies, and the analysis of along-profile slope-area relationships.

İdare ve siyasi yönden bir gerileme başlangıcı olan bu dönem kısalığına rağmen, güzel sanatlar ve peyzaj açısından önemlidir. III. Ahmet başta olmak üzere devlet büyükleri ve zenginlerinin yaptırdıkları, kağıthane vadisinden başlayarak, Haliç ve Boğaz kıyılarına yayılan sayısız sahil-saray, saray, köşk ve yalıların bahçe ve koruları ile İstanbul bir “bahçe ve su şehri” görünümüne bürünmüştür. Avrupa’da Rönesans ve Barok bahçe modası yerini İngiliz natüralist bahçelerine bırakırken, Türk bahçesi Barok bahçelerinin güzellik ve ihtişamı ile büyülenmekte idi. Bu devrin en karakteristik eserleri Topkapı Sarayı bahçeleri ve Üsküdar Sarayları’nın bahçeleri olarak karşımıza çıkmıştır. Osmanlı mimarisinin Avrupa etkilerine açılması, 28. Mehmet Çelebi’nin 1720-1721 yılları arasında Fransa’yı ziyareti ile başlayan bir girişimin dolaylı ürünü olmuştur. Bu devirde şiir, edebiyat ve müzikle birlikte bahçe sanatında da büyük gelişmeler olmuş, saray ekranı İstanbul’da manzaraya hakim güzel yerlerde bahçeli saray, köşk ve yalılar yaptırarak zevkü sefa sürmeye başlamışlar. Bunların arasında Beşiktaş’taki Çırağan Sarayı ile Kağıthane Vadisi’ndeki Sadatabad Sarayı ve Üçyüz Köşk bu döneme ait en önemli örnekler olarak değerlendirilmiştir. Lale devri mimarisinde doğrudan doğruya Batı’dan aktarılan “biçimler” görülmemiş ancak lale devri le birlikte baş gösteren ve genel tasarlama eğiliminde kavranabilen yenilikler olmuştur. Lale devrindeki batıya açılış Türk bahçelerinde de benzer düzenlemelerin ortaya çıkmasına yol açmıştır. 1720’lerdeki Fransız elçisi aracılığı ile bu ülkeden bahçe düzenleyicileri getirilmiştir. 19.
