    Radwan, Jon

    Over many years, Kenneth Burke developed theoretical, philosophical, and methodological insights about humans and language. The term he gave to entitle this vast body of work is Dramatism. Rather than the spirit-matter dualism, Burke proposes that scholars direct their attention toward action and motion. By holding that there can be "no…

  3. Den unge Burkes Satire

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Ørndorf, Steen

    Edmund Burke (1730-1797) er i nyere tid blevet politisk ikon, kendt som konservatismens fader. Berømmelsen skyldes hovedværket fra 1790, Reflections on the Revolution in France, som er et angreb på den franske revolution. Ungdomsarbejdet A Vindication of Natural Society er fra 1756 og har status...... både som konservativ forløber for Burkes hovedværk, og som radikalt modstykke hertil. Burkes fremragende sprogfornemmelse udfoldes her i et rent festfyrværkeri af besnærende argumenter. Den forførende retorik bedøver læserens fornuft. Denne virkning gør sig stadig gældende.

  5. Obituary: Edward W. Burke, Jr. (1924-2011)

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bloomer, Raymond, Jr.

    2011-12-01

    Dr. Edward W. Burke Jr. passed away on June 15, 2011, after suffering a heart attack. Dr. Burke devoted his professional life to the research and teaching of physics and astronomy at King College in Bristol, Tennessee. Edward W. Burke, Jr., was born in Macon, Georgia, on September 16, 1924. He was a Navy veteran, having been commissioned as an ensign in 1944. He served in the Pacific near the end of World War II. He proceeded to complete his undergraduate degree in mathematics from Presbyterian College in 1947 and pursued the M.S. and Ph.D. in physics (1949 and 1954, respectively) at the University of Wisconsin. Under the direction of Professor Julian Mack, his thesis was titled "Isotope Shift in the Spectra of Boron." Although he did research in atomic spectra in the early part of his career, his interest in astronomy and variable stars in particular were his primary interests during his long academic career. Dr. Burke began his illustrious career at King College in 1949. He initiated the astronomy program there in 1950, included constructing a 12.5 inch Newtonian telescope, homemade as was most everything in those days. Many of his students learned about photometry at the Burke Observatory on the college campus. Burke was known for his trips to the Kitt Peak and Lowell observatories accompanied by undergraduate students on his trips, all of which were made by automobile which he preferred over flying. His initial interest in Ap stars later broadened into variable and especially eclipsing binary stars. His motivation was maintained by his desire to have his students experience basic research and to spark their interest in advanced degrees. Numerous students achieved advanced science and medical degrees because of Burke's encouragement and mentoring. In 1959, Dr. Burke was awarded a Fulbright professorship and traveled to Chile where he taught physics for a year in the Engineering School at the University of Chile in Santiago. He worked to establish a physics

  6. Pyruvate Oxidase Is a Determinant of Avery's Rough Morphology

    Full Text Available El historiador inglés Peter Burke, nacido en 1937 y educado inicialmente por los jesuitas, estudió en Oxford. Ha sido, hasta su reciente jubilación, profesor de historia cultural en la Universidad de Cambridge así como miembro del Emmanuel College. Italianista de vocación itinerante desde muy joven –y gran políglota por afición–, ha dado cursos por doquier, como un entusiasta ilustrado que rehuye la repetición de paisajes y cualquier enclaustramiento. Siempre ha luchado cautelosamente contra esa constatación suya de que la comunidad intelectual, pese a tantos congresos internacionales, es más bien una confederación de «subculturas locales». Sus numerosos libros, de muy diversos planteamientos, han sido traducidos a más de veinte lenguas, y una cifra similar es la de los que se han vertido al castellano.

  10. Pyruvate oxidase is a determinant of Avery's rough morphology.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Belanger, Aimee E; Clague, Melissa J; Glass, John I; Leblanc, Donald J

    2004-12-01

    In pioneering studies, Avery et al. identified DNA as the hereditary material (A. T. Avery, C. M. MacLeod, and M. McCarty, J. Exp. Med. 79:137-158, 1944). They demonstrated, by means of variation in colony morphology, that this substance could transform their rough type 2 Streptococcus pneumoniae strain R36A into a smooth type 3 strain. It has become accepted as fact, from modern textbook accounts of these experiments, that smooth pneumococci make capsule, while rough strains do not. We found that rough-to-smooth morphology conversion did not occur in rough strains R36A and R6 when the ability to synthesize native type 2 capsule was restored. The continued rough morphology of these encapsulated strains was attributed to a second, since-forgotten, morphology-affecting mutation that was sustained by R36A during strain development. We used a new genome-PCR-based approach to identify spxB, the gene encoding pyruvate oxidase, as the mutated locus in R36A and R6 that, with unencapsulation, gives rise to rough colony morphology, as we know it. The variant spxB allele of R36A and R6 is associated with increased cellular pyruvate oxidase activity relative to the ancestral strain D39. Increased pyruvate oxidase activity alters colony shape by mediating cell death. R36A requires a wild-type spxB allele for the expression of smooth type 2 morphology but not for the expression of smooth type 3 morphology, the phenotype monitored by Avery et al. Thus, the mutated spxB allele did not impact their use of smooth morphology to identify the transforming principle.

  11. Oswald Avery: the professor, DNA, and the Nobel Prize that eluded him.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ghose, Tarunendu

    2004-01-01

    In 1944, two Canadians, Oswald Avery and Colin MacLeod, and an American, MacLyn McCarty, published a paper in The Journal of Experimental Medicine that demonstrated genes to be the chemical, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Even though this paper is now regarded as the single mos important publication in biology of the 20th century, Avery was not awarded the Nobel Prize. This raises the question as to why his work did not earn him the Prize. These are several possible reasons: the discovery may have been ahead of tis time; all three authors were physician-scientists ans not recognized chemists or geneticists; and Avery, the principal author, had reached an advanced age and characteristically took an extremely cautious and low-key approach to his work. Discussion of these reasons in turn raises other issues surrounding the recognition of the work of celebrated scientist, from Galileo and Copernicus onwards.

  16. Magnetoplasmadynamcis - Portrait of Macon C. 'Mike' Ellis, Jr

    Science.gov (United States)

    1962-01-01

    Portrait of Macon C. 'Mike' Ellis, Jr. James Hansen described Mike Ellis as 'the first and only person to be in charge of Langley's Magnetoplasmadynamcis (MPD) Branch.' He was 'an NACA veteran who was 42 years old when the branch was organized. Ellis had come to work at Langley in 1939, and over the course of his career at the laboratory, he had been involved in pioneering work on the aerodynamics of jet engines, ramjets, and supersonic inlets and nozzles. Fittingly, Ellis had worked for Eastman Jacobs and with Arthur Kantrowitz in the early 1940s, and he had heard firsthand accounts of his former colleagues' attempts to design a fusion reactor in the spring of 1938. By the late 1950s, Ellis was one of Langley's most outspoken believers in MPD's promise of technological benefits. Ellis encouraged Floyd Thompson's enthusiasm for MPD and persuaded Langley's senior staff of mostly engineers that MPD was a field of research vital to the future of NASA. When the time came to pick someone to head the new branch, Ellis was unquestionably the person for the job. 'Ellis was no extraordinary 'scientific brain.' As an aeronautical engineer, his talents were quite respectable, but he possessed no special competency in the physics of fluids beyond his experience in aerodynamics or gas dynamics. He was always the first to admit that the complexities of plasma physics and MPD were such that 'there was no way' that he personally could conduct basic MPD research. That challenge he would leave to minds more suited for it. But Ellis could bring the MPD researchers together as a unit, serve as their strong external advocate, shield them from front-office pressures, and make sure that they received the support they needed to carry out their work. 'I just tried to keep my head above water,' Ellis explains, 'and keep these *mad scientists' from going off on too many tangents, or going mad myself.' Published in James R.

  2. Geology of the Spruce Pine District, Avery, Mitchell, and Yancy Counties, North Carolina

    Science.gov (United States)

    Brobst, Donald Albert

    1962-01-01

    The Spruce Pine pegmatite district, a northeastward-trending belt 25 miles long and 10 miles wide, lies in parts of Avery, Mitchell, and Yancey Counties in the Blue Ridge Province of western North Carolina. The most abundant rocks in the district are interlayered mica and amphibole gneisses and schists, all of which are believed to be of Precambrian age. These rocks are cut by small bodies of dunite and associated rocks of Precambrian (?) age, large bodies of alaskite and associated pegmatite of early Paleozoic age, and basaltic and diabasic dikes and sills of Triassic (?) age. The rocks of the district have been weathered to saprolite that is locally 50 feet thick. The major structure in the area is a southwestward-plunging asymmetrical synclinorium that has its steeper limb on the northwest side. Feldspar, muscovite as sheet and scrap (ground) mica, and kaolin from the alaskite and associated pegmatite account for over 90 percent of the total mineral production of the district. Amounts of other pegmatite minerals, including quartz, beryl, columbite-tantalite, rare-earth and uranium minerals are an extremely small part of the mineral resources. Actual or potential products from other rocks are olivine, vermiculite, asbestos, talc, chromium and nickel, soapstone, mica schist, garnet, kyanite, dolomite marble, and construction materials.

  10. Traditionalism and modern subjectivity: Enlightenment and conservatism of Edmund Burke

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Nikitović Aleksandar

    2003-01-01

    Full Text Available The issue of traditionalism versus modern subjectivism in the light of the conflict of Edmund Burke`s conservatism with the Enlightenment as the ideological basis of the French revolution was not discussed or studied sufficiently in our political and philosophical theory. In this paper we are reconsidering a theoretical debate between arising modern rationalism of Enlightenment and European traditionalism. The text further explains on the reasons for choosing this subject and course the research will take subsequently. An overview is provided of the most important topics as well as a preliminary conception of the problem structure in this research. Considering the importance and overwhelming influence exhorted by French revolution it is only logical that the event of such magnitude met not only with approvals but with challenges and disputes as well, and all of it contributed to the theoretical considerations of the historical sense and purpose of this event. The aim of the project is to provide explanations and evaluations of the origins Enlightenment on one hand side and theoretically reconsidered traditionalism on the other. Looking at the dawn of modern era and evaluating these events would cast sharper light on the spirit of times of this crucial moment of history, and it would provide new basis for reconsideration of the achievements and implications of the fundamental ideas of Moderna.

  2. Selections of reality: applying Burke's dramatism to a harm reduction program.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Järvinen, Margaretha; Miller, Gale

    2014-09-01

    Kenneth Burke's dramatistic perspective is applied to accounts told by staff members working in methadone maintenance treatment centres in Copenhagen, Denmark. As a harm reduction strategy, methadone maintenance is designed to reduce the costs and dangers of chronic long-term drug use by providing substitution (methadone) treatment to users. Burke's dramatistic perspective calls attention to the recurring relationships among rhetorical elements within accounts of social reality. The elements form a pentad: scene, purpose, agent, agency and acts. Our analysis examines how the ideal of governmentality is constructed by staff members to justify and criticize the operations of the Copenhagen methadone maintenance program. For Burke, social criticism involves rearranging pentadic elements to produce new meanings and justify alternative actions. We discuss how Burke's perspective might be developed by sociologists as a critical dramatism of social policies and programs.

    Although he had pursued a liberalist career as a Whig politician, Edmund Burke became the first modern conservative when he published Reflections on the Revolution in France to argue against the French Revolution and defend the British constitution. In this work, Burke significantly tried to seek British national identity in order to refute the political theory behind the French Revolution. The purpose of this paper is to examine Burke's political arguments and elucidate concretely the charac...

  8. Debate on sublime in the end of 18th century: Burke, Kant, Schiller

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available In the article the authors are examining three positions within the 18th Century aesthetic discussion on the sublime - Edmund Burke's, Immanuel Kant's and Friedrich Schiller's. They are also trying to reconstruct the political backgrounds of each of this theoretical positions: old regime conservatism (Burke, republican liberalism (Schiller and romantic longing for the 'third way' (Kant. The most sophisticated and mature theory of sublime is found in Schiller's aesthetic works, especially in those following his disappointment in French Revolution, in which the relationship between sublime and paradoxes of historical violence is most thoroughly reflected.

    Five deep stratigraphic test holes were drilled from 1991 to 1993 in support of multidisciplinary investigations to determine the stratigraphy of Upper Cretaceous and Tertiary sediments of the coastal plain in east-central Georgia. Cored sediment and geological logs from the Millhaven test hole in Screven County and the Girard and Millers Pond test holes in Burke County are the primary sources of lithologic and paleontologic information from this report. Lithologic and paleontologic information from the Thompson Oak and McBean test holes in Burke County supplements the discussion of stratigraphy and sedimentation in the updip part of the study area near the Millers Pond test hole.

  10. Functional characterization and evaluation of in vitro protective efficacy of murine monoclonal antibodies BURK24 and BURK37 against Burkholderia pseudomallei.

    Full Text Available Burkholderia pseudomallei, the causative agent of melioidosis has been recognized by CDC as a category B select agent. Although substantial efforts have been made for development of vaccine molecules against the pathogen, significant hurdles still remain. With no licensed vaccines available and high relapse rate of the disease, there is a pressing need for development of alternate protection strategies. Antibody-mediated passive protection is promising in this regard and our primary interest was to unravel this frontier of specific mAbs against Burkholderia pseudomallei infections, as functional characterization of antibodies is a pre-requisite to demonstrate them as protective molecules. To achieve this, we designed our study on in vitro-based approach and assessed two mAbs, namely BURK24 and BURK37, reactive with outer membrane proteins and lipopolysaccharide of the pathogen respectively, for their ability to manifest inhibitory effects on the pathogenesis mechanisms of B. pseudomallei including biofilm formation, invasion and induction of apoptosis. The experiments were performed using B. pseudomallei standard strain NCTC 10274 and a clinical isolate, B. pseudomallei 621 recovered from a septicemia patient with diabetic ailment. The growth kinetic studies of the pathogen in presence of various concentrations of each individual mAb revealed their anti-bacterial properties. Minimal inhibitory concentration and minimal bactericidal concentration of both the mAbs were determined by using standards of Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI and experiments were performed using individual mAbs at their respective bacteriostatic concentration. As an outcome, both mAbs exhibited significant anti-Burkholderia pseudomallei properties. They limited the formation of biofilm by the bacterium and completely crippled its invasion into human alveolar adenocarcinoma epithelial cells. Also, the mAbs were appreciably successful in preventing the

  3. Rehabilitation of the Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof generalized gradient approximation for layered materials

    Science.gov (United States)

    Peng, Haowei; Perdew, John P.

    2017-02-01

    The structural and energetic properties of layered materials present a challenge to density functional theory with common semilocal approximations to the exchange-correlation energy. By combining the most widely used semilocal generalized gradient approximation (GGA), the Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof (PBE) one, with the revised Vydrov-van Voorhis nonlocal correlation functional (rVV10), both excellent structural and energetic properties of 28 layered materials have been recovered with a judicious parameter selection. We term the resulting functional PBE+rVV10L, with the "L" indicating that it is for layered materials. Such a combination is not new, and only involves refitting a single global parameter. However, the resulting excellent accuracy suggests such a dispersion-corrected PBE for many aspects of theoretical studies on layered materials. For comparison, we also present the results for PBE+rVV10 where the parameter is determined by 22 interaction energies between molecules.

    A simple formulation of a generalized gradient approximation for the exchange and correlation energy of electrons has been proposed by Perdew, Burke, and Ernzerhof (PBE) [Phys. Rev.

  5. Factors related to establishment of Prosopis caldenia Burk. seedlings in central rangelands of Argentina

    Science.gov (United States)

    de Villalobos, A. E.; Peláez, D. V.; Elia, O. R.

    2005-03-01

    Prosopis caldenia Burk. is one of the woody species that is increasing in abundance due to poor grazing management in the semi-arid phytogeographic region of central Argentina, commonly known as the Caldenal. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of herbaceous cover, cattle dung, soil disturbance, and water supply on emergence and survival of P. caldenia seedlings on sites with different grazing histories: (i) a site exposed to long-term continuous grazing by cattle (grazed site), and (ii) a long-term exclosure to domestic livestock (ungrazed site). Removal of grass cover, addition of cattle dung, and water supply enhanced seedling emergence and survival, especially in the grazed site. Results suggest that factors (direct and indirect) associated with prolonged grazing history markedly affect P. caldenia establishment. This in turn alters the grass-woody plant balance, which might reduce the potential capacity of livestock production in the Caldenal.

    Full Text Available Carnival clothing is one form of artists creativities in fine art, created in various functions. Those functions are viewed based on utility value and the purpose that consistently are embedded in an art work. In addition, several functions of carnival clothing were constructed on the basis of social and cultural conditions that are effective in a certain place. Each and every type of clothing raises perception to everyone else who sees it. Promotion of fashion style and industry through carnival clothing results in diverse perceptions acceptable to the viewers. Audiences perceptions are also not apart from the key functions, social ones, and the physical ones of those carnival clothings themselves. Those three functions are the common ones of each art work created as communication tool with everyone else. The carnival clothings are communication tools of the fashion designer to the customers, communication between one customer and another one. On the carnival clothing there are also sources of knowledge science, history, technology, and many other explainable meanings. Through carnival clothings, the detectable issues in physical and non-physical structures are identifiable as well as they play role as the space to make more exploration on the dynamics of a community culture. This article aims to answer the functions of carnival clothing, using aesthetic approach, through the theory of clothing functions Roland Barthes and Edmund Burke Feldmans art functions.

    In September 2004, rain from the remnants of Hurricanes Frances and Ivan triggered at least 155 landslides in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. At least 33 debris flows occurred in Macon County, causing 5 deaths, destroying 16 homes, and damaging infrastructure. We mapped debris flows and debris deposits using a light-detecting and ranging digital elevation model, remote imagery and field studies integrated in a geographic information system. Evidence of past debris flows was found at all recent debris flow sites. Orographic rainfall enhancement along topographic escarpments influenced debris flow frequency at higher elevations. A possible trigger for the Wayah and fatal Peeks Creek debris flows was a spiral rain band within Ivan that moved across the area with short duration rainfall rates of 150-230 mm/h. Intersecting bedrock structures in polydeformed metamorphic rock influence the formation of catchments within structural-geomorphic domains where debris flows originate. ?? 2007 Springer-Verlag.

    Edmund Burke is generally viewed as the philosophical founder of conservatism.Based on historical utilitarian-ism,which is a core characteristic of conservatism,Burke is dedicated to conserving tradition,because he believes custom and habits which contain historical experience and wisdom are important and meaningful for social practice of later generations.Be-sides,he maintains that tradition should be reformed step by step guided by prudence rather than radical rationalism.Above all,the most meaningful enlightenment from Burke is that,to build up cultural confidence and promote positive development of national culture,subtle balance should be kept between abandoning tradition and inheriting tradition.%埃德蒙·伯克被誉为“现代保守主义之父”。保守主义的一个核心内涵是历史功利主义,伯克以此为基础,致力于保守传统,认为风俗和习惯蕴含了历史的经验与智慧,对指引后人的实践活动具有重要价值和意义。他反对激进的理性主义,主张以审慎的准则、渐进温和的改良方式来保守传统。埃德蒙·伯克富有意义的启示在于,传统只有在继承并超越自身的过程中才能得以真正保守,要寻求对传统的否定和继承、批判和创新之间的平衡点,并以此塑造文化自信,促进民族文化的健康、良性发展。

    Gonthier, Gerard

    2013-01-01

    The hydrogeology and water quality of the Dublin and Midville aquifer systems were characterized in the City of Waynesboro area in Burke County, Georgia, based on geophysical and drillers’ logs, flowmeter surveys, a 24-houraquifer test, and the collection and chemical analysis of water samples in a newly constructed well. At the test site, the Dublin aquifer system consists of interlayered sands and clays between depths of 396 and 691 feet, and the Midville aquifer system consists of a sandy clay layer overlying a sand and gravel layer between depths of 728 and 936 feet. The new well was constructed with three screened intervals in the Dublin aquifer system and four screened intervals in the Midville aquifer system. Wellbore-flowmeter testing at a pumping rate of 1,000 gallons per minute indicated that 52.2 percent of the total flow was from the shallower Dublin aquifer system with the remaining 47.8 percent from the deeper Midville aquifer system. The lower part of the lower Midville aquifer (900 to 930 feet deep), contributed only 0.1 percent of the total flow. Hydraulic properties of the two aquifer systems were estimated using data from two wellbore-flowmeter surveys and a 24-hour aquifer test. Estimated values of transmissivity for the Dublin and Midville aquifer systems were 2,000 and 1,000 feet squared per day, respectively. The upper and lower Dublin aquifers have a combined thickness of about 150 feet and the horizontal hydraulic conductivity of the Dublin aquifer system averages 10 feet per day. The upper Midville aquifer, lower Midville confining unit, and lower Midville aquifer have a combined thickness of about 210 feet, and the horizontal hydraulic conductivity of the Midville aquifer system averages 6 feet per day. Storage coefficient of the Dublin aquifer system, computed using the Theis method on water-level data from one observation well, was estimated to be 0.0003.

    This report provides the results of a detailed Level II analysis of scour potential at structure BURKTH00070016 on Town Highway 7 crossing Dish Mill Brook, Burke, Vermont (figures 1–8). A Level II study is a basic engineering analysis of the site, including a quantitative analysis of stream stability and scour (U.S. Department of Transportation, 1993). Results of a Level I scour investigation also are included in Appendix E of this report. A Level I investigation provides a qualitative geomorphic characterization of the study site. Information on the bridge, gleaned from Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTAOT) files, was compiled prior to conducting Level I and Level II analyses and is found in Appendix D. The site is in the White Mountain section of the New England physiographic province in northeastern Vermont. The 6.0-mi2 drainage area is in a predominantly rural and forested basin. In the vicinity of the study site, the surface cover is forest except on the left bank upstream which is brushland. In the study area, Dish Mill Brook has an incised, sinuous channel with a slope of approximately 0.04 ft/ft, an average channel top width of 40 ft and an average bank height of 6 ft. The channel bed material ranges from sand to boulder with a median grain size (D50) of 94.1 mm (0.309 ft). The geomorphic assessment at the time of the Level I and Level II site visit on August 7, 1995, indicated that the reach was stable. The Town Highway 7 crossing of Dish Mill Brook is a 28-ft-long, two-lane bridge consisting of one 24-foot steel-beam span (Vermont Agency of Transportation, written communication, March 24, 1995). The opening length of the structure parallel to the bridge face is 24.8 ft. The bridge is supported by vertical, concrete abutments with wingwalls. The channel is skewed approximately 35 degrees to the opening while the computed opening-skew-to-roadway is 35 degrees. A scour hole 1.0 ft deeper than the mean thalweg depth was observed along the left and right

  3. Comparison of the Sublime Theory between Burke and Kant%试比较柏克与康德崇高论

    康德的崇高论与柏克的崇高论有着直接的传承关系,二者都认为崇高具有可怖性,是一种由痛感转化而来的快感。但柏克将崇高感性化了,康德在其基础上把崇高理性化了,因此又有着不同之处。%Kant’s sublime theory has a direct inherent relationship with Burke’s, both of them think sublime objects have some sense of horror, and sublimity is a sense of joy which is transformed from the sense of pain. However, Burke has made sublimity sensible;Kant has made sublimity much more reasonable. Therefore, they have some differences in their sublime theory.

  4. Evaluation of TRIGRS (transient rainfall infiltration and grid-based regional slope-stability analysis)'s predictive skill for hurricane-triggered landslides: A case study in Macon County, North Carolina

    The key to advancing the predictability of rainfall-triggered landslides is to use physically based slope-stability models that simulate the transient dynamical response of the subsurface moisture to spatiotemporal variability of rainfall in complex terrains. TRIGRS (transient rainfall infiltration and grid-based regional slope-stability analysis) is a USGS landslide prediction model, coded in Fortran, that accounts for the influences of hydrology, topography, and soil physics on slope stability. In this study, we quantitatively evaluate the spatiotemporal predictability of a Matlab version of TRIGRS (MaTRIGRS) in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Macon County, North Carolina where Hurricanes Ivan triggered widespread landslides in the 2004 hurricane season. High resolution digital elevation model (DEM) data (6-m LiDAR), USGS STATSGO soil database, and NOAA/NWS combined radar and gauge precipitation are used as inputs to the model. A local landslide inventory database from North Carolina Geological Survey is used to evaluate the MaTRIGRS' predictive skill for the landslide locations and timing, identifying predictions within a 120-m radius of observed landslides over the 30-h period of Hurricane Ivan's passage in September 2004. Results show that within a radius of 24 m from the landslide location about 67% of the landslide, observations could be successfully predicted but with a high false alarm ratio (90%). If the radius of observation is extended to 120 m, 98% of the landslides are detected with an 18% false alarm ratio. This study shows that MaTRIGRS demonstrates acceptable spatiotemporal predictive skill for landslide occurrences within a 120-m radius in space and a hurricane-event-duration (h) in time, offering the potential to serve as a landslide warning system in areas where accurate rainfall forecasts and detailed field data are available. The validation can be further improved with additional landslide information including the exact time of failure for each

    A rapid method combining microwave-assisted extraction (MAE) and high-speed counter-current chromatography (HSCCC) was applied for preparative separation of six bioactive compounds including loganic acid (I), isoorientin-4'-O-glucoside (II), 6'-O-β-d-glucopyranosyl gentiopicroside (III), swertiamarin (IV), gentiopicroside (V), sweroside (VI) from traditional Tibetan medicine Gentiana crassicaulis Duthie ex Burk. MAE parameters were predicted by central composite design response surface methodology. That is, 5.0 g dried roots of G. crassicaulis were extracted with 50 mL 57.5% aqueous ethanol under 630 W for 3.39 min. The extract (gentian total glycosides) was separated by HSCCC with n-butanol/ethyl acetate/methanol/1% acetic acid water (7.5:0.5:0.5:3.5, v/v/v/v) using upper phase mobile in tail-to-head elution mode. 16.3, 8.8, 12., 25.1, 40.7, and 21.8 mg of compounds I-VI were obtained with high purities in one run from 500 mg of original sample. The purities and identities of separated components were confirmed using HPLC with photo diode array detection and quadrupole TOF-MS and NMR spectroscopy. The study reveals that response surface methodology is convenient and highly predictive for optimizing extraction process, MAE coupled with HSCCC could be an expeditious method for extraction and separation of phytochemicals from ethnomedicine.

  9. Edmund Burke, the Atlantic American war and the ‘poor Jews at St. Eustatius’. Empire and the law of nations

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Guido Abbattista

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available This essay is devoted to a relatively minor episode in Edmund Burke’s parliamentary career and political speculation involving the rights of war and international law in the final years of the American War of Independence. The starting point for Burke’s consideration of these questions was the affair of St. Eustatius, that is to say Britain’s conquest in 1781 of the Dutch West-Indian island early in the “fourth Anglo-Dutch War” of 1780-1784. The harsh treatment of the Dutch colony’s cosmopolitan community by the commanding officers of the British Navy and Army provoked a series of reactions in Britain and the colonies. The essay starts by outlining the identity of St. Eustatius with its economic, demographic and social features, its peculiar role in the eighteenth-century West Indies and its emblematic meaning in the historical literature of the Enlightenment as a symbol of the virtues of commerce and of economic liberty. It goes on to analyse the facts of the military conquest in 1781 and the ensuing occupation realized by Admiral George Rodney and Major-General John Vaughan, particularly as this affected the “poor Jews at St. Eustatius” (as Burke himself qualified them in his second speech on 4 December 1781, with the subsequent reactions of the Dutch and especially the British Atlantic world. We then examine Edmund Burke’s reasons for taking up this affair, including the political and ideological motives and the sources of arguments he used in the two parliamentary speeches he made on the topic during 1781, relating this to Burke’s ideas on international relations and imperial government during the 1770s and 1780s. We end by pointing to cultural links between Burke’s positions and a wider political, commercial and civic culture emerging in the British Atlantic world which reflected some of the most typical European Enlightenment values and ideological commitments.

    O objetivo deste artigo é introduzir ao leitor o pensamento político de Edmund Burke, um dos nomes mais influentes do pensamento político conservador. A partir de uma breve contextualização da crítica burkeana ao racionalismo iluminista, o artigo procura mostrar como o autor organiza conceitos centrais de sua teoria política, como poder, legitimidade, conservação, correção, preconceito, prescrição, num discurso articulado e coerente, com o objetivo de sustentar que na Inglaterra política e religião constituem, juntas, não só a base não só da prosperidade do povo mas também o fundamento do Estado. Em seguida, aborda-se a crítica de Burke à Revolução Francesa, à “psicologia dos revolucionários” e, de maneira mais detida, aos direitos do homem, discutindo alguns de seus argumentos contra as abstrações distanciadas das práticas concretas dos coletivos humanos e a transformação da metafísica moderna num programa político.

    Anther wall formation,microsporogenesis and the formation of male gametophyte in Swertia hic-kinii Burk. Were reported for the first time in the present paper. (1) Anthers are etrasporangiate. Anther wall comprises epidermis,endothecium,one middle layer and tapetum and the development of anther wall is of the dicotyledonous type. The tapetum has dual origin and belongs to the glandular type. The endothecium and epidermis persist, but the cells in endothecium develop to become elongated and fibrously thickened. (2)The cytokinesis in the microsporocyte meiosis is simultaneous. Most of the microspore tetrads are tetrahedral and there are a few other types,such as isobilateral and "T"-shaped. Mature pollen grains are 3-celled and tricolporate. The common embryological characters of Sxvertia were generalized and compared to those of Gentiana, Craw fur dia and Tripterospermum. Whether the epidermis persists can be used to distinguish Sxvertia from Tripterospermum.%采用常规石蜡切片技术,对江浙獐牙菜(Swertia hickinii Burk)花药壁形成、小孢子发生和雄配子体形成过程进行了研究.结果表明:(1)花药四室,花药壁由表皮、药室内壁、中层和绒毡层组成,药壁发育为双子叶型.绒毡层异型起源,腺质型.花粉成熟时药室内壁径向加长并纤维状加厚,表皮宿存.(2)小孢子母细胞在减数分裂过程中胞质分裂为同时型;小孢子四分体排列方式主要为四面体型,也有左右对称型和“T”型等其他类型;成熟花粉为3细胞型,具三萌发沟.另外,对獐牙菜属的雄性胚胎学特征进行了全面总结,并与龙胆属、蔓龙胆属及双蝴蝶属进行比较归纳出其共性.研究认为,花药表皮宿存或退化,是獐牙菜属与双蝴蝶属的重要区别之一.

    The introduction of soil map information to the land cover mapping process can improve discrimination of land cover types and reduce confusion among crop types that may be caused by soil-specific management practices and background reflectance characteristics. Multiple dates of LANDSAT MSS digital were analyzed for three study areas in northern Missouri to produce cover types for major agricultural land cover classes. Digital data bases were then developed by adding ancillary data such as digitized soil and transportation network information to the LANDSAT-derived cover type map. Procedures were developed to manipulate the data base parameters to extract information applicable to user requirements. An agricultural information system combining such data can be used to determine the productive capacity of land to grow crops, fertilizer needs, chemical weed control rates, irrigation suitability, and trafficability of soil for planting.

    The quality and safety of Panax notoginseng products has become a focus of concern in recent years. Contamination with heavy metals is one of the important factors as to P. notoginseng safety. Cleaning treatments can remove dust, soil, impurities or even heavy metals and pesticide residues on agricultural products. But effects of cleaning treatments on the heavy metal content of P. notoginseng roots have still not been studied. In order to elucidate this issue, the effects of five different cleaning treatments (CK, no treatment; T1, warm water (50°C) washing; T2, tap water (10°C) washing; T3, drying followed by polishing; and T4, drying followed by tap water (10°C) washing) on P. notoginseng roots' heavy metal (Cu, Pb, Cd, As and Hg) contents were studied. The results showed that heavy metal (all five) content in the three parts all followed the order of hair root > rhizome > root tuber under the same treatment. Heavy metal removals were in the order of Hg > As > Pb > Cu > Cd. Removal efficiencies of the four treatments were in the order of T2 > T1 > T3 > T4. Treatments (T1-T4) could decrease the contents of heavy metal in P. notoginseng root significantly. Compared with the requirements of WM/T2-2004, P. notoginseng roots' heavy metal contents of Cu, Pb, As and Hg were safe under treatments T1 and T2. In conclusion, the cleaning process after production was necessary and could reduce the content of heavy metals significantly. Fresh P. notoginseng root washed with warm water (T2) was the most efficient treatment to remove heavy metal and should be applied in production.

  5. Contamination of supplements: an interview with professor Ron Maughan by Louise M. Burke.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Maughan, Ron

    2004-08-01

    This issue of IJSNEM features two articles related to supplement use by athletes. In one (Morrison et al. 2004), people who undertake regular exercise in a gym were found to report the use of a wide variety of supplements. The other paper (Goel et al. 2004) dealt with one of the issues that a sub-group of athletes need to consider before deciding to take supplements - the risk of a positive drug test if the product contains substances banned by the anti-doping codes under which their sport is conducted. This issue received much publicity earlier in the year when top tennis player Greg Rusedski tested positive for the steroid nandrolone as the result of inadvertent intake via a contaminated supplement. In this article, Professor Ron Maughan, Chair of Sports Nutrition at Loughborough University in the United Kingdom, advisor to the British Olympic team, and co-editor of IJSNEM, provides his insight on this important topic.

    Full Text Available Objective – To determine the general public’s levels of social tolerance toward public library materials containing racist content in order to present opinion data to librarians within a framework of scholarly perspectives that they can use for making decisions about intellectual freedom and controversial materials in libraries.Design – Percentage and regression analysis of the General Social Survey longitudinal trend study dataset.Setting – United States, 1976-2006.Subjects – Random samples of 26,798 primarily English-speaking adults aged 18 and up.Methods – The author analyzed responses from the well-respected and frequently used General Social Survey (GSS, which has been conducted by the National Opinion Research Center since 1972. The GSS is a closed-ended survey including a variety of demographic measures. Between the years 1976 and 2006, it also included a question to gauge the support of removing a book with racist beliefs about African Americans from the public library. The surveys were conducted irregularly over this thirty-year span, and in total the question was asked nineteen times garnering 26,798 responses. Spanish speakers were not included until 2006.The author examined the data in multilevel cross-tabulations using percentages, and calculated chi-square for independence using frequencies. A multiple regression analysis was conducted to determine the predictive value of the independent variables examined on opinions of book removal. The author examined different variables, including education level, race, age, parental status, sex, geographic factors, religious affiliation, political party, and political conservatism. Occupation was not used in the regression analysis because sample sizes in some categories were too small. The two ordinal variables, age and education level, were available as ratio level data that are most appropriate for regression calculations.Due to the large sample size, very small differences in percentages are significant at the .000 level. In these cases the author made judgment as to whether these differences were meaningful, or divided the data into multi-layer cross-tabulations to reduce the sample size and make the significance test more informative.Main Results – Analysis revealed the most influential predictors of support for book removal from the public library were education level, religious affiliation, and race. Age was particularly influential for older respondents, while occupation and living in the South were moderately influential. Variables with only slight correlations to support of book removal included political party affiliation and conservatism, parental status, and sex.Across all years of the study only 35.3% of respondents supported removal of racist materials from the public library. Levels of support only changed slightly over the decades: in 1976, 38.1% supported removal while in 2006 only 34.5% did.The mean age of respondents was 44.1 years and the median was 42 years. Respondents over 57 years old were more likely to support removal (43.5% compared to younger ages whose support ranged from 31.1–34.1%. The largest change over time was seen from respondents 57 years and older, whose support for removal dropped in later years of the study.Education level had a strong impact on opinions; the lower one’s education level, the higher their support for removal of the racist book from the public library. Of those with less than a high school degree, 50.6% supported removal versus 35.8% of high school diploma holders. Respondents with junior college, bachelor’s, and graduate degrees supported removal at 29.2%, 20.5%, and 15.3%, respectively. Over time, those with high school degrees maintained their level of support for removal while those with higher levels of education increased their support for removal.Race was strongly related to opinions on removing offensive items from the library. While half of African American respondents supported removing a racist book, only one-third of white respondents did. However, in all but a few subcategories of analysis, the majority of African Americans did not support removal, indicating a great deal of social tolerance on their part despite the possibility of being more sensitive to the implications of having racist materials in the library. When cross-tabulated with education level, the same pattern of support for removal was reproduced. There was little variation over time in white respondent’s opinions while African Americans’ varied slightly.Geographic factors affected opinions supporting removal of racist materials, though place size only had a small impact on opinions. Respondents in the South were most likely to support removal (42.1% and those in New England were least likely (25.2%. About one-third of respondents from the Midwest (33%, Mid-Atlantic (36%, and the West (29.8% supported removal. Opinions over time remained the same in all regions but the South, whose support of removal dropped to 38.8%.Religion was found to correlate with opinions on removing racist books from the library. Protestants showed the highest level of support for removal (39.5%, followed by Catholics (32.3%, Jews (21.7%, and respondents unaffiliated with religion (20.5%. Race had a strong impact within some religions on supporting removal, particularly among Methodists and those claiming no religion. When opinions by religion were cross-tabulated with education level, at every level Baptists were more likely to support removal than other groups, while Jews and those without religious affiliation were least likely.Other demographic variables had little effect on opinions concerning removal of racist materials from the library. Parents supported removal (37% while nonparents were less likely to (30%, and men and women were almost equally likely to support removal (33% and 37% respectively. Political affiliation and level of conservatism only showed slight effects on opinions supporting removal. By a small margin Democrats were most likely to support removal (39.2% followed by Republicans (34% and independents (32.5%. Across the conservatism spectrum, moderates were most likely to support removal (37.7% followed by conservatives (36.4% and liberals (29.9%.The author also examined whether a respondent’s occupation influenced their opinions and focused this inquiry on the professions of library workers and educators. Librarians were overwhelmingly against removal of racist materials while library paraprofessionals were less likely to support it than other workers with a similar level of education. College and university teachers in disciplines other than library and information science were divided but in comparison to other similarly educated professions they were less likely to support removal. School teachers were significantly more likely to support removal than other occupations also requiring a bachelor’s degree.When contrasted with controversial materials of other types, such as those by openly homosexual or communist authors, different patterns of support for removal over time were observed. Support for removal of books by homosexuals and communists declined significantly over the decades. Similar to the support of the removal of racist materials, education and religious affiliation were the variables most highly correlated to support of removal of these other types of controversial books.Conclusion – The discomfort among Americans over the free expression of exclusionary speech about African Americans remained relatively consistent over the years of the study (1976 – 2006 despite some shifts within particular demographic categories. Tolerance toward free expression by homosexuals and communists increased over time, demonstrating exclusionary speech may be perceived as a different type of social threat. Librarians can use this information to: better understand how non-librarians view intellectual freedom in the context of materials with offensive content; inform collection development decisions and predict likelihood of challenges based on the demographics of their user communities; and to educate the public and library stakeholders of the implications of challenging these kinds of items within a library’s collection through upholding their professional values. Librarians should continue to serve their communities by acting as champions of intellectual freedom and to uphold the profession’s rigorous standards. The author suggests future research could: address attitudes about materials with racist views of populations other than African Americans; look for differences in opinions among library users versus non-users; and differentiate between adult and children’s materials containing controversial topics.

  8. Reference Services in Australian Academic Libraries are Becoming More Multifaceted, A Review of: Burke, L. “Models of Reference Services in Australian Academic Libraries.” Journal of Librarianship and Information Science 40.4 (2008: 269‐86.

    Full Text Available Objective – To investigate the current organizational models for reference work in Australian academic libraries, and how these reference services are staffed.Design – Mixed methods.Setting – Academic universities in Australia.Subjects – Forty Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL member libraries.Methods – A literature study was undertaken to (1 find a definition of reference services and (2 explore the development of reference service models over time. Statistics from the CAUL member libraries were studied for trends in student population and number of academic and library staff. A web‐based survey, with questions based on the findings in the literature study, was then distributed to the 40 Australian university libraries in 2006. Respondents were asked when the library commenced different reference services in five areas: formats in which the library received and responded to reference queries, information literacy, subject specialization, liaison activities, and collection development. Respondents also answered questions about the organization of the reference department, including: whether they had a separate or integrated model; the size of the reference collections; if they had a librarian dedicated to supporting students studying in remote or distant mode; if the interlibrary loans department was part of the suite of reference services; and if they had a mission or statement of purpose for their reference services department.Main Results – Based on the literature study, the working definition of reference services (1 for the project was “all activities which assist in providing relevant and appropriate information services to patrons” (270, including:•All interactions with patrons to assist them in their searches for information in all media types.•All training by librarians of patrons to be able to access information for themselves.•Activities to help the library stay informed of relevant developments, such as establishing and maintaining relationships with patrons. The literature study also revealed (2 a shift from the traditional reference service model, focused on the reference desk and the services delivered from that location, to new models involving “consolidation of reference service points, establishment of tiered reference, reference by appointment, reorganization of reference departments, and limiting services to primary users” (271.The core aspects of reference services have changed little over time, including face‐to‐face reference work, print collection development, bibliographic instruction, and attending meetings. In some aspects, however, there has been a shift in emphasis, e.g., in bibliographic instruction from the teaching of tools to the teaching of information literacy. In addition, reference work has come to include “going out to users,” or academic liaison work, as well as research consultation as a general way to assist undergraduate student in getting started on assignments and projects.The Web‐based survey (n=40, response rate 87.5% showed that 32.4% of libraries have an integrated inquiry point which incorporates information queries and other queries that are not necessarily related to traditional library reference services (272, Table 1. This survey result supports the findings of the literature study in showing a trend of library services moving away from the traditional reference desk. A majority of the responding libraries still retained a separate reference department, but a significant number of libraries have developed departments incorporating reference services with other library services. Those that retained the separate department varied in how they described services to patrons, the most common name being Information Services, a more user‐friendly and descriptive name. In staffing the reference service, the respondents were asked to indicate the classification level of their staff using the Higher Education Worker (HEW scale (an Australian salary scale, based on competencies, minimum 1 / maximum 10. Staff spans a variety of levels (4‐10, the most common level being HEW6, a level where all libraries had staff. This indicates that a large part of reference staff in Australian academic libraries are highly qualified. The shift in higher education, resulting in greater numbers of students and fewer staff (including librarians, has in many libraries resulted in a more flexible organization of reference services, and the utilization of staff from other sections of the library for manning the reference service point. There is also evidence of how the changing student population leads to changing demands for library facilities and services, e.g. a decrease in the traditional complex reference questions, as well as in over the counter loan transactions, and an increase in more general queries.Conclusion – Reference services in Australian academic libraries are becoming more flexible and integrated (although the definition for integrated is still unclear, in part as the result of client demand, and in part due to decreased funding. The author sees an emerging role for reference librarians in helping patrons to navigate the increasingly complex information environment, and to assist in developing the skills to critically evaluate the information they access for authoritativeness and appropriateness.

  9. Lichenometric dating: Science or pseudo-science?-Comment to the paper published by Osborn, McCarthy, LaBrie, and Burke, Quaternary Research 83 (2015), 1-12

    O'Neal, Michael Aaron

    2016-09-01

    The 2015 article by Osborn and others entitled 'Lichenometric Dating: Science or Pseudo-Science?' delivers an unprecedented, in-depth critique of the cumulative problems associated with the development and application of lichenometric dating techniques over the past 65 years. Their stated goal is to appraise the validity of numerical ages derived from lichen measurements, but in doing so, they present a broader, systematic deconstruction of current lichenometric dating practices by emphasizing the unreliable, incomparable, and irreproducible results published by many studies. Osborn et al. revisit a few examples where some scientific rigor has been applied to the methodology, but overall, they cast doubt on the usefulness of any lichenometric analysis by revealing a global failure to avoid poor techniques and outcomes, heedless of the caveats stated in past literature.

    用分光光度法在体外研究了pH对三七块根花色苷呈色和降解的效应,结果表明:该花色苷在可见光区的吸收光谱和降解速率均具独特的pH依赖性.在pH 2.0,该花色苷呈现最强烈的红色.随着pH从0增加到13.0,该花色苷在可见光区的最大吸收波长(λvis mac)依次出现红移、蓝移,然后消失,在可见光区最大吸收波长处的吸光值(Aλvis mac)呈现为一条单峰曲线,唯一的峰在pH 2.0处.当原始pH值被恢复到2.0后,如果原始pH值≤6.0,花色苷的红色均被恢复得更浓烈,λvis mac不同程度地趋向532 nm,Aλvis mac增加;如果原始pH值≥7.0,花色苷的红色根本不能被恢复,λvis mac几乎不变,Aλvis mac仍然维持低水平.在15℃,黑暗中,该花色苷在pH 0~6.0条件下均随时间而降解,在pH 2.0时的降解速度最慢,当pH≤3.0时,该花色苷在总体上降解缓慢;此外,该花色苷的降解过程几乎符合一级反应动力学.本文可为三七块根颜色呈现的机理探索及其色素的开发、利用提供参考.%The effects of pH on the coloration and degradation of the root tuber anthocyanins of Panax no-toginseng were studied in vitro by using spectrophotometry. The results indicated that beth the visible light absorption spectra and the degradation rates of the anthocyanins were particularly pH-dependent. At pH 2. 0, the anthocyanins expressed the strongest red. Along with the increase of pH values from 0 to 13. 0, the maximal absorption wavelengths in visible light (λvis,maxS) of the anthocyanins expressed bathochromic and hypsochromic shift orderly, then disappeared, and the absorbance values at the maximal absorption wave-length in visible light (Aλvis,maxS) exhibited a single-peak curve, with the peak at pH 2. 0. After the primi-tive pH values were restored to 2. 0, if the primitive pH ≤6.0, the red hues of the anthocyanins were all resumed to much stronger, the λvis,maxS altered toward 532 nm in different degrees, and the Aλvis,max S in-creased, if the primitive pH >t 7. O, the red hues of the anthocyanins could not be resumed at all, the λvis,max S did not almost change, and the Aλvis,max S still remained at a very low level. Being placed at 15℃ in darkness, the anthocyanins at the pH values of 0 ~ 6. 0 all degraded along with time. The degradation rate at pH 2. 0 was the slowest, and when the pH ≤ 3. 0, the anthocyanins degraded slowly as a whole. Fur-thermore, the degradation courses of the anthocyanins almost approximated first-order reaction kinetics. This paper could provide a reference for the exploration on the mechanism of the root tuber coloration and the exploitation and utilization of the tuber pigments of P. notog/nseng.

    This forum response extends the argument made by Avery and Hains that oral traditions can be useful for including the cultures and contexts of rural areas within science instruction. To buttress the oral expressions presented in Avery and Hains, I compare oral expressions of a second rural area, 600 miles to the South, in Eastern North Carolina. I explore similarities and differences in expressions from the two areas and consider the changing rural context within Eastern North Carolina. I add a consideration of larger demographic shifts impacting many rural areas—particularly in the US South—and close with a discussion of implications for science education.

  15. Using structured decision making with landowners to address private forest management and parcelization: balancing multiple objectives and incorporating uncertainty

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Paige F. B. Ferguson

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available Parcelization and forest fragmentation are of concern for ecological, economic, and social reasons. Efforts to keep large, private forests intact may be supported by a decision-making process that incorporates landowners' objectives and uncertainty. We used structured decision making (SDM with owners of large, private forests in Macon County, North Carolina. Macon County has little land use regulation and a history of discordant, ineffective attempts to address land use and development. We worked with landowners to define their objectives, identify decision options for forest management, build a Bayesian decision network to predict the outcomes of decisions, and determine the optimal and least-desirable decision options. The optimal forest management options for an average, large, forested property (30 ha property with 22 ha of forest in Macon County was crown-thinning timber harvest under the Present-Use Value program, in which enrolled property is taxed at the present-use value (growing timber for commercial harvest rather than full market value. The least-desirable forest management actions were selling 1 ha and personal use of the forest (e.g., trails, firewood with or without a conservation easement. Landowners reported that they enjoyed participating in the project (85% and would reconsider what they are currently doing to manage their forest (69%. The decision that landowners initially thought would best meet their objectives did not match results from the decision network. This highlights the usefulness of SDM, which typically has been applied to decision problems involving public resources.

    Full Text Available In this article, Ciarán J. Burke argues that the ‘Responsibility to Protect’ initiative has failed. Burke presents a series of fundamental flaws, both with the doctrine advanced by the ICISS, and with the subsequent attempts to incorporate it into the international legal framework. Burke opines that equity, as a source of international law, should instead be used to shed fresh light on the debate, keeping the discourse within the law and away from subjective ethics, and drafting a novel framework which he dubs ‘equitable humanitarian intervention’.

  11. Sustainable leadership in a Thai healthcare services provider.

    2011-01-01

    Rhineland leadership practices contrast sharply with the prevailing Anglo/US business model of short-term maximization of profitability, and are said to lead to greater corporate sustainability, at least in highly developed economies. However, the applicability of Rhineland leadership to less developed economies has not yet been demonstrated. This paper sets out to compare the business practices of a social enterprise that delivers healthcare services in Thailand and Avery's 19 sustainable leadership practices derived from Rhineland enterprises. Adopting a case study approach, multi-data collection methods included non-participant observations made during visits to the enterprise, and reference to internal and published documentation and information. Semi-structured interview sessions were held with many stakeholders, including top management, staff, patients and a former consultant. In the Thai healthcare organization studied, evidence was found for compliance with 15 of Avery's 19 sustainable leadership elements, but to varying degrees. The elements were grouped into six core sets of practices: adopting a long-term perspective, staff development, organizational culture, innovation, social responsibility, and ethical behavior. One element was found to be not applicable, and no evidence was found for conformity with Rhineland principles on the remaining three sustainable practices. The paper concludes that Avery's 19 Rhineland practices provide a useful framework for evaluating the corporate sustainability of this Thai enterprise. Healthcare enterprises in Thailand and possibly in other Asian countries that wish to sustain their organizational success could adopt Avery's 19 Sustainable Leadership Grid elements to examine their leadership practices, and adjust them to become more sustainable. The relevance of Rhineland sustainable leadership principles to enterprises in less developed economies remains to be investigated. This study attempts to uncover this unknown.

    The new superconductor MgB2 has been prepared in two ways, by high pressure and ambient pressure synthesis.The superconducting properties were measured and compared. It is found that the sample prepared by highpressure is much denser than that prepared under ambient pressure. Accordingly the high pressure sample has avery narrow transition width and a much higher bulk critical current densityC

    The use of oral presentations as an assessment instrument has been heavily criticised from as far back as 1936 (Hartog and Rhodes cited in Ahmed 1999). However they are currently enjoying a resurgence due to today’s constraints on marking time and the current fashion for developing employability-enhancing transferable skills (Avery and Bryan, 2001). The fact that oral presentations avoid some of the problems raised by internet plagiarism (Cassidy 2004) has also contributed to their rise. In t...

  8. The chemical characterization of the gene: vicissitudes of evidential assessment.

    2011-01-01

    The chemical characterization of the substance responsible for the phenomenon of "transformation" of pneumococci was presented in the now famous 1944 paper by Avery, MacLeod, and McCarty. Reception of this work was mixed. Although interpreting their results as evidence that deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is the molecule responsible for genetic changes was, at the time, controversial, this paper has been retrospectively celebrated as providing such evidence. The mixed and changing assessment of the evidence presented in the paper was due to the work's interpretive flexibility--the evidence was interpreted in various ways, and such interpretations were justified given the neophytic state of molecular biology and methodological limitations of Avery's transformation studies. I argue that the changing context in which the evidence presented by Avery's group was interpreted partly explains the vicissitudes of the assessments of the evidence. Two less compelling explanations of the reception are a myth-making account and an appeal to the wartime historical context of its publication.

    In 2008, a multidisciplinary team at the Medical Center of Georgia, Macon, began a one-year Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle to implement a high-quality pediatric surgery service line. The PDSA team defined goals, objectives, and measurable performance metrics and then reviewed cases and aggregated data monthly to identify and improve clinical, process, instrument, and supply problems as well as patient transfer issues. The PDSA cycle led to improvements in team performance, communication, and patient transfer and decreased the number of problems associated with instruments, supplies, equipment, and surgeon tardiness.

    A compact optical switch matrix was designed, in which light circuits were folded by total internal reflective (TIR) mirrors. Two key elements, 2 × 2 switch and TIR mirror, have been fabricated on silicon-on-insulator wafer by anisotropy chemical etching. The 2 × 2 switch showed very low power consumption of 140mW and avery high speed of 8 ± 1 μs. An improved design for the TIR mirror was developed, and the fabricated mirror with smooth and vertical reflective facet showed low excess loss of 0.7 ± 0.3 dB at 1.55μm.

    Full Text Available Mary Ellen Avery’s research is recognized as a milestone in biomedical research. She had discovered the underlying cause of Hyaline Membrane Disease, surfactant deficiency, fostering ever more vigorous efforts to reduce neonatal mortality in the burgeoning practice of Neonatology. Neonatology is the only clinical discipline that began as an experiment, making it a model for biomedical research. Avery knew that the concerted effort to treat preterm newborns could potentially do more harm than good, violating her oath to Hippocrates, if not held to the highest scientific standards. She remained true to that pledge throughout her career, as recounted in this Review.

    Michael Burke is an artist who's work combines scientific principles with aesthetic goals. He will describe how he became an artist after careers in astronomy and city planning, and discuss the supposed separation of science and art. The talk will be illustrated with photographs of his work, including an installation in an Etruscan tomb and one at the port city of Savona in Italy. Mr. Burke sees a romance in science equivalent to that of art, and will argue that the two should not be so resolutely separated.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Durham, W.B.; Abey, A.E.

    1981-03-27

    Measurements have been made of thermal conductivity, diffusivity, and linear expansion as a function of temperature (to 573 K) and hydrostatic pressure (to 50 MPa) on two rocks, Avery Island domal salt and Climax Stock quartz monzonite. For Avery Island salt the thermal properties do not show any pressure dependence and are approximately the same values as for single crystal halite at 0.1 MPa. The lack of pressure dependence is attributed to the high symmetry of halite (cubic) and to its low strength, both of which inhibit brittle fracturing. For Climax Stock quartz monzonite no pressure dependence of thermal diffusivity has been resolved, but conductivity does show a drop of approximately 10% with decreasing pressure from 50 to 3 MPa. The pressure dependence is not measurably altered by heating the rock to as high as 473 K under 50 MPa. Our measurements so far on the thermal conductivity of quartz monzonite vs temperature and pressure are in agreement with predictions of the Walsh and Decker (1966) model of thermal conductivity vs crack porosity based on independent measurements of crack porosity vs temperature and pressure for the same quartz monzonite. Heating to temperatures greater than 473 K at 50 MPa, or heating to lower temperatures at lower pressures, should substantially reduce thermal conductivity of the quart monzonite.

  11. Aluminum Tape Evaluation for Sealable Aluminum Tubes Containing Mark 22 Fuel Tubes

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    RHODES, WILLIAM

    2003-01-01

    As part of the HEU Blend Down project, aluminum tape is required to seal aluminum tubes that will hold contaminated Mark 22 fuel tubes for dissolution. From a large field of candidate tapes, Avery Dennison's Fasson 0802 tape (synthetic rubber adhesive system) was found to be acceptable for this application. This tape will disentangle in the normal H-Canyon dissolver solution and have no detrimental effect on the H-Canyon process. Upon placement of Fasson 0802 tape into the dissolver solution, nitric acid will attack and disentangle the block copolymer network and destroy the adhesive nature of the material, resulting in insoluble particles that can be removed via centrifuge operations (cake weight increase of no more than 1 percent). The addition of the tape will not generate off-gas products and the resultant solution characteristics (surface tension, viscosity, density, and disengagement time) will be unaffected. Further, the potential effect on the down-stream evaporation system is negligible. Since the tape will not be placed in a high radiation environment, radiation stability is not an issue. Through detailed discussions with Avery Dennison chemists and based on analytical tests, a fairly detailed understanding of the constituents comprising the proprietary adhesive system has been assembled. Most importantly, chlorine was not detected in the aluminum tape (neutron activation analysis detection limit is 16 ppm). Finally, application of this tape will not impact LEU specifications.

  12. Is Density Functional Theory adequate for quantum transport?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Burke, Kieron

    2007-03-01

    Density functional calculations for the electronic conductance of single molecules attached to leads are now common. I'll examine the methodology from a rigorous point of view, discussing where it can be expected to work, and where it should fail. When molecules are weakly coupled to leads, local and gradient-corrected approximations fail, as the Kohn-Sham levels are misaligned. In the weak bias regime, XC corrections to the current are missed by the standard methodology. Finally, I will compare and contrast several new methodologies that go beyond the present standard approach of applying the Landauer formula to ground-state DFT.

    In the framework of the E-ELT project a prospecting campaign was launched by the ESO to select the site that will host the next generation of optical telescopes of 42 m diameter. Moroccan Anti-Atlas (Jbel Aklim) was selected as well as other sites (ORM, Ventarrones and Macon) to be a possible potential location that will house the E-ELT. In this paper we first present the reasons for the choice of Jbel Aklim as a E-ELT candidate through various exploration campaigns that we have achieved. The second part concerns description of instruments used. Finally we will present the preliminary results of the meteorological and MASS-DIMM measurements.

  9. Tuskegee University experience challenges conventional wisdom: is integrative bioethics practice the new ethics for the public's health?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sodeke, Stephen Olufemi

    2012-11-01

    The Tuskegee University National Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care was established in 1999 in partial response to the Presidential Apology for the United States Public Health Service's Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male conducted in Macon County, Alabama, from 1932 to 1972. The Center's mission of promoting equity and justice in health and health care for African Americans and other underserved populations employs an integrative bioethics approach informed by moral vision. Etymological and historical analyses are used to delineate the meaning and evolution of bioethics and to provide a basis for Tuskegee's integrative bioethics niche. Unlike mainstream bioethics, integrative bioethics practice is holistic in orientation, and more robust for understanding the epistemic realities of minority life, health disparities, and population health. The conclusion is that integrative bioethics is relevant to the survival of all people, not just a privileged few; it could be the new ethics for the public's health.

    Nonexperimental studies suggest that individuals with higher selenium (Se) status are at decreased risk of cancer. The Nutritional Prevention of Cancer (NPC) study randomized 1,312 high-risk dermatology patients to 200-mcg/day of Se in selenized yeast or a matched placebo; selenium supplementation decreased the risk of lung, colon, prostate, and total cancers but increased the risk of nonmelanoma skin cancer. In this article, we report on a small substudy in Macon, GA, which began in 1989 and randomized 424 patients to 400-mcg/day of Se or to matched placebo. The subjects from both arms had similar baseline Se levels to those treated by 200 mcg, and those treated with 400-mcg attained plasma Se levels much higher than subjects treated with 200 mcg. The 200-mcg/day Se treatment decreased total cancer incidence by a statistically significant 25%; however, 400-mcg/day of Se had no effect on total cancer incidence.

  11. A simplistic view of hadron calorimetry

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Groom, Donald E.

    2006-11-16

    All too often we rely on Monte Carlo simulations withoutworrying too much about basic physics. It is possible to start with avery simple calorimeter (a big cylinder) and learn the functional form ofpi e by aninduction argument. Monte Carlo simulations provide sanitychecks and constants. A power-law functional form describes test beamresults surprisingly well. The prediction that calorimeters responddifferently to protons and pions of the same energy was unexpected. Theeffect was later demonstrated by the CMS forward calorimeter group, usingthe most noncompensating calorimeter ever built. Calorimeter resolutionis dominated by fluctuations in piz production and the energy deposit byneutrons. The DREAM collaboration has recently used a dual readoutcalorimeter to eliminate the first of these. Ultimate resolution dependson measuring neutrons on an event-by-event basis as well.

  12. Triple Positive Solutions to a Third-order Three-point Boundary Value Problem with p-Laplacian Operator

    2015-01-01

    In this paper, we consider the three-point boundary value problem (φp(uˊˊ(t)))ˊ +a(t)f(t, u(t), uˊ(t), uˊˊ(t)) = 0, t ∈ [0, 1] subject to the boundary conditions u(0) =βuˊ(0), uˊ(1) = αuˊ(η), uˊˊ(0) = 0, where φp(s) = |s|p−2s with p > 1, 0 < α, η < 1 and 0 ≤ β < 1. Applying a fixed point theorem due to Avery and Peterson, we study the existence of at least three positive solutions to the above boundary value problem.

    2015-01-01

    The February, 2015 issue of Hawaii Fishing News included the annual list of Hawai`i records for the largest fish of various species caught in the state. Among the new records was one for a 15-pound grass carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella) caught by Avery Berido in the Wailoa River at Hilo on September 13, 2013. A photograph taken by Mr. Berido of the record grass carp garnered our attention because pictured fish looked quite similar to another Asian carp species, the black carp (Mylopharyngodon piceus). Mr. Berido informed us that he also captured a 10-pound grass carp from the same river in June, 2013. After close examination of all of the photographs provided by Mr. Berido, we concluded that both fish from the Wailoa River were unusually dark grass carp, not black carp.

    2003-01-01

    We consider the verification problem of invariance properties for timed systemsmodeled by (extended) Timed Graphs with duration variables. This problem is in general caseundecidable. Nevertheless we give in this paper a technique extending a given system into anotherone containing the initial computations as well as additional ones. Then we define a digitiza-tion technique allowing the translation from the continuous case to the discrete one. Using thisdigitization, we show that to each real computation in the initial system corresponds a discretecomputation in the extended system. Then, we show that the extended system corresponds to avery close approximation of the initial one, allowing per consequent, a good analysis of invarianceproperties of the initial system.

  16. Flapping in North American Pronunciation: Case 1 The Change of /t/ and /d/ into [D] in Pronunciation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Mehmet DEMİREZEN

    2006-04-01

    Full Text Available The North American English is different from the British English in manypronunciation cases. One of these cases is known as flapping in the articulation of which the /t/ and /d/ phonemes are converted into a flap, whose sign is [D]. This pronunciation case isfrequently heard in many TV broadcasts such as CNN, CNN International, and Voice ofAmerica. Flapping, triggered by a phonetic process called neutralization, causes a breakdownis communication. Even advanced students can be “confused with it” (Avery and Ehrlich1992:42. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the working mechanism of flapping andrehabilitate its pronunciation difficulty by a sample lessons operated by the audio-articulationmethod.

Using the five functional fixed point theorem due to Avery, we obtain sufficient conditions for the existence of at least three positive solutions.

  18. The birth and development of the DNA theory of inheritance: sixty years since the discovery of the structure of DNA

    Petter Portin

    2014-04-01

    The development of the DNA theory of inheritance culminated in the publication of the molecular structure of DNA 60 years ago. This paper describes this development, beginning with the discovery of DNA as a chemical substance by Friedrich Miescher in 1869, followed by its basic chemical analysis and demonstration of its participation in the structure of chromosomes. Subsequently it was discovered by Oswald Avery in 1944 that DNA was the genetic material, and then Erwin Chargaff showed that the proportions of the bases included in the structure of DNA followed a certain law. These findings, in association with the biophysical studies of Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin with Raymond Gosling, led James Watson and Francis Crick to the discovery of the double-helical structure of DNA in 1953. The paper ends with a short description of the development of the DNA theory of inheritance after the discovery of the double helix.

  1. The shift of prompt critical in reflected reactors and the limitations of the mean prompt-neutron lifetime model

    Spriggs, G.D. [Los Alamos National Lab., NM (United States); Busch, R.D. [New Mexico Univ., Albuquerque, NM (United States). Dept. of Chemical and Nuclear Engineering

    1994-08-01

    Prompt critical in a bare reactor is defined as the point at which the reactivity {rho} of the reactor is equal to the effective delayed neutron fraction {beta}. In a reflected reactor, however, it is shown that prompt critical will occur at a reactivity of {rho} = {beta}(1-f) where f is the fraction of core neutrons that return to the core region after having leaked into the reflector. Furthermore, it is also shown that the mean prompt-neutron lifetime model that has been traditionally used to characterize the dynamic response of reflected reactors may not always provide an adequate representation of the system for reactivities greater than 1$. And finally, the coupled, point-kinetic equations proposed by Avery and further developed by Cohn for simple reflected systems are recast into a more usable form that can be readily used to perform superprompt critical transient analyses.

    Agha, Mickey; Delaney, David F.; Lovich, Jeffrey E.; Briggs, Jessica; Austin, Meaghan; Price, Steven J.

    2015-01-01

    Research on interactions between Agassiz's desert tortoises (Gopherus agassizii) and ungulates has focused exclusively on the effects of livestock grazing on tortoises and their habitat (Oldemeyer, 1994). For example, during a 1980 study in San Bernardino County, California, 164 desert tortoise burrows were assessed for vulnerability to trampling by domestic sheep (Ovis aries). Herds of grazing sheep damaged 10% and destroyed 4% of the burrows (Nicholson and Humphreys 1981). In addition, a juvenile desert tortoise was trapped and an adult male was blocked from entering a burrow due to trampling by domestic sheep. Another study found that domestic cattle (Bos taurus) trampled active desert tortoise burrows and vegetation surrounding burrows (Avery and Neibergs 1997). Trampling also has negative impacts on diversity of vegetation and intershrub soil crusts in the desert southwest (Webb and Stielstra 1979). Trampling of important food plants and overgrazing has the potential to create competition between desert tortoises and domestic livestock (Berry 1978; Coombs 1979; Webb and Stielstra 1979).

  3. Advancing educational diversity: antifragility, standardization, democracy, and a multitude of education options

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fortunato, Michael W. P.

    2017-03-01

    This essay is a response to a paper by Avery and Hains that raises questions about the often unintended effects of knowledge standardization in an educational setting. While many K-12 schools are implementing common core standards, and many institutions of higher education are implementing their own standardized educational practices, the question is raised about what is lost in this effort to ensure regularity and consistency in educational outcomes. One such casualty may be local knowledge, which in a rural context includes ancestral knowledge about land, society, and cultural meaning. This essay explores whether or not efforts to standardize crowd out such knowledge, and decrease the diversity of knowledge within our society's complex ecosystem—thus making the ecosystem weaker. Using antifragility as a useful idea for examining system complexity, the essay considers the impact of standardization on innovation, democracy, and the valuation of some forms of knowledge (and its bearers) above others.

  5. Gateway to understanding: Indigenous ecological activism and education in urban, rural, and remote contexts

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lowan-Trudeau, Gregory

    2016-08-01

    This article is a response to Kassam, Avery, and Ruelle's insights as presented in this forum on rural science education. Topics considered include troubling the urban/rural divide in the context of Indigenous knowledge and expanding to include the common Canadian notion of the "remote", a designation rooted in our national colonial narrative for the mythic, typically northern, wilderness sparsely inhabited by primarily Indigenous peoples. These concepts are further considered through exploration of Indigenous and allied ecological activism in Canada and the United States related to the proposed Northern Gateway and Keystone XL pipelines. This discussion concludes with an argument for the inherent pedagogical opportunity presented by such cases for contemporary educators to engage students in consideration of wicked problems, geographically rooted cognitive diversity, and the legal, economic, ecological, and cultural underpinnings and ramifications of the current events prominent in their home communities and abroad.

  8. Gateway to understanding: Indigenous ecological activism and education in urban, rural, and remote contexts

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lowan-Trudeau, Gregory

    2017-03-01

    This article is a response to Kassam, Avery, and Ruelle's insights as presented in this forum on rural science education. Topics considered include troubling the urban/rural divide in the context of Indigenous knowledge and expanding to include the common Canadian notion of the "remote", a designation rooted in our national colonial narrative for the mythic, typically northern, wilderness sparsely inhabited by primarily Indigenous peoples. These concepts are further considered through exploration of Indigenous and allied ecological activism in Canada and the United States related to the proposed Northern Gateway and Keystone XL pipelines. This discussion concludes with an argument for the inherent pedagogical opportunity presented by such cases for contemporary educators to engage students in consideration of wicked problems, geographically rooted cognitive diversity, and the legal, economic, ecological, and cultural underpinnings and ramifications of the current events prominent in their home communities and abroad.

    Full Text Available Efficient resource allocation is the major issue in the development of fourth generation mobilecommunication systems. A very high data rate is needed for advanced multimedia applications andinternet. This paper evaluates the performance of improved algorithm for the future Long Term Evolution(LTE advanced standards-the 3GPP candidate for 4G. For the analysis autoregressive model ofcorrelated Rayleigh fading processes is used. Simulation results shows that for downlink transmission avery high data rate ,upto hundreds of Mbps can be obtained using improved algorithm under theconstraints of available transmit power and given BER. Same algorithm is also analysed by varying the no.of users and spreading factor. Performance of the improved algorithm is evaluated in comparison withACA algorithm and shows significant improvement in the throughput for the three combining schemes

    Science.gov (United States)

    Horseman, S. T.; Handin, J.

    Using screw-driven machines with exceptionally reliable data-acquisition and confining-pressure systems and an uninterruptible power-supply, we have tested 10 by 20-cm specimens of Avery Island rocksalt at constant strain-rates down to 10-9/s. At strains between 0.05 and 0.10, steady-state flow is achieved at about 6.8 MPa at 200°C and 10-7/s and 9.4 MPa at 100°C and 10-8/s. At 10-9/s a strain of only 0.03 has so far been reached after 3 × 107s (about 350 days); tests at 50° and 100°C are to continue for another 100 days unless steady-state flow is surely observed sooner.

  11. Voyager 2 Jupiter Eruption Movie

    Science.gov (United States)

    2000-01-01

    This movie records an eruptive event in the southern hemisphere of Jupiter over a period of 8 Jupiter days. Prior to the event, an undistinguished oval cloud mass cruised through the turbulent atmosphere. The eruption occurs over avery short time at the very center of the cloud. The white eruptive material is swirled about by the internal wind patterns of the cloud. As a result of the eruption, the cloud then becomes a type of feature seen elsewhere on Jupiter known as 'spaghetti bowls'.As Voyager 2 approached Jupiter in 1979, it took images of the planet at regular intervals. This sequence is made from 8 images taken once every Jupiter rotation period (about 10 hours). These images were acquired in the Violet filter around May 6, 1979. The spacecraft was about 50 million kilometers from Jupiter at that time.This time-lapse movie was produced at JPL by the Image Processing Laboratory in 1979.

    Full Text Available Fire is one of the major hazards in warships. A warship being avery complex structure, with sophisticated weapons, machinery, fueland ammunition is always at risk of fire. Restrictions on movement of ship's personnel and equipment requires automation in fire detectionand control systems. This paper describes the limitations of conventional fire detection systems, followed by the features of modern fire detection and alarnr (the so-called intelligent systems and thetypes of fire detectors used in fire detection systems. The experimentalset-up used for simulating a simple system having 24 sensors connecteato the micro computer via digital input card is explained in detail withthe limitations of the experimental set-up and improvements that canbe made by incorporating serial communication in a loop, using fibre optics data links. and intelligent loop/interface units.

    Full Text Available We are concerned with the following third-order three-point boundary value problem: u′′′t=ft, ut,   t∈0, 1,   u′0=u1=0 and  u′′η-αu′1=0, where α∈0, 1 and η∈(14+α/(24-3α,1. Although the corresponding Green’s function is sign-changing, we still obtain the existence of at least two positive and decreasing solutions under some suitable conditions on f by using the two-fixed-point theorem due to Avery and Henderson.

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available Abstract By using fixed point theorems in cones, the existence of multiple positive solutions is considered for nonlinear -point boundary value problem for the following second-order boundary value problem on time scales , , , , where is an increasing homeomorphism and homomorphism and . Some new results are obtained for the existence of twin or an arbitrary odd number of positive solutions of the above problem by applying Avery-Henderson and Leggett-Williams fixed point theorems, respectively. In particular, our criteria generalize and improve some known results by Ma and Castaneda (2001. We must point out for readers that there is only the -Laplacian case for increasing homeomorphism and homomorphism. As an application, one example to demonstrate our results is given.

    2006-06-01

    Full Text Available Kinetics of the enzymatic hydrolysis of tributyrin using lipase has been investigated. The initial rate of reaction was determined experimentally at different substrate concentration by measuring the rate of butyric acid produced. Michaels-Menten kinetic model has been proposed to predict the initial rate of hydrolysis of tributyrin in micro-emulsion system. The kinetic parameters were estimated by fitting the data to the model using three methods, namely, the Lineweaver-Burk, Edie-Hofstee and Hanes methods. The Michaels-Menten model with the constant predicted by Edie-Hofstee and Hanes methods predicted the initial rate of reaction at various substrate concentrations better than the model with the constant predicted Lineweaver-Burk method, especially at high substrate concentrations.

  17. A study of the threshold behavior in e{sup -} + HF scattering based on R-matrix theory

    2008-01-29

    This study of the threshold behavior in e{sup -} + HF scattering presents fixed-nuclei R-matrix calculations for internuclear distances between 1.25 and 2.85 Bohr, including electron correlation to a high amount. On the whole, our results confirm the static exchange plus polarization (SEP) results of Morgan and Burke [J. Phys. B 21 (1988) 2091]. For internuclear separations close to 2.5 Bohr evidence for an electronic shape resonance was found. However, this resonance cannot be continued to sufficiently short distances in order to describe the collision process as a completely resonant process. Elastic and vibrationally inelastic cross sections are obtained within the Born-Oppenheimer approximation [B.I. Schneider, M. LeDourneuf, P.G. Burke, J. Phys. B 12 (1979) L365]. The agreement of the obtained cross sections with experimental results supports our conclusions drawn from the fixed-nuclei calculations.

  18. DNA as Genetic Material: Revisiting Classical Experiments through an Easy, Practical Class

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    W. J. Malagó

    2009-05-01

    Full Text Available In 1928, Frederick Griffith demonstrated a process of transmission of genetic information by transforming  Pneumococcus. In 1944, Oswald Avery, Colin Munro MacLeod and Maclyn McCarty showed that Griffith´stransformation principle  is DNA. Here, we intend to revisit these classicalexperiments by reproducing them in easier adapted forms, for a practical class given to undergraduate students. The Griffith experiment was reproduced by mixing heat-killed, ampicillin - resistant  E. coliwith live ampicillin -susceptible  E. coli, followed by plating samples in the presence or absence of the antibiotic. Cells were also plated separately as control. Avery’s work was reproduced by pre-treating a purified plasmid harboring the ampicillin resistan ce gene with Dnase I. Treated and untreated plasmids were then used to transform  E. colicells, which were plated in culture media containing ampicillin. The students received a class guide with brief theoretical explanations and protocols to perform the experiments. The original papers by Griffith and Avery  et al. were also provided, along with a list of questions to encourage a discussion on the experimental approach and results obtained. The adapted experiments were successful completed and all expected results were obtained in class. Thus the students effectively revisited the classical experiments which revealed that DNA is the genetic material. Also, the class was very well accepted, as indicated by students’ evaluations. Thus, we presented an inexpens ive, quick class involving important concepts, which can be easily reproduced in any laboratory withminor resources.

    Organizational diagnosis is a step (some authors say the first) in a change process, having as primary goals identifying strengths and weaknesses, their causes and finding solutions intended to lead towards an improvement of the organization. The paper tries to present some of the models of organizational diagnosis that were proposed: three level model, Weisbord Six Box model, Burke-Litwin and the congruence model, discussing their advantages and disadvantages. The last part of the paper pres...

    Enterprise architecture (EA) is one of the most important tools for implementing e-government effectively and delivering high-quality information technology services to citizens. To develop a robust EA research model with key success factors, we apply the theory of organizational change proposed by Burke and Litwin, using the concepts of transformational and transactional change. The analysis is conducted by using South Korea’s EA project launched in 2003. This study classifies EA implementat...

    Resonant e+e- pair production by an electron in a magnetic field near the process threshold has been analytically studied. Using the Nikishov's theorem an estimation of the number of events has been made in the magnetic field equivalent to laser wave in the SLAC experiment [D.Burke et.al. Phys. Rev. Lett.79, 1626 (1997)]. The obtained estimation is in reasonable agreement with the experimental data.

    The Michaelis-Menten equation is used in many biochemical and bioinorganic kinetic studies involving homogeneous catalysis. Otherwise, it is known that determination of Michaelis-Menten parameters K M, Vmax, and k cat by the well-known Lineweaver-Burk double reciprocal linear equation does not produce the best values for these parameters. In this paper we present a discussion on different linear equations which can be used to calculate these parameters and we compare their results with the va...
