Full Text Available Les héroïnes de tragédies ont un statut spécial dans le monde figuré du Peintre de Darius. C’est le cas de Médée et de Créuse (mère d’Ion auxquelles le céramographe apulien réserve de véritables « épiphanies ». Pour quels motifs et quel est le lien entre deux héroïnes apparemment bien différentes ? L’ A. procède à un réexamen critique d’iconographies célèbres, valorisant certains détails, souvent négligés, dont la compréhension est essentielle. Le P. de Darius conçoit le lien entre ses héroïnes à travers sa connaissance des auteurs tragiques athéniens du Ve siècle, principalement d’Euripide. Or, comment et pourquoi les problèmes affrontés par Médée et Créuse, reflétant le contexte politique et social de l’Athènes classique, sont-ils susceptibles d’intéresser le public de l’artiste apulien, formé de citoyens de poleis italiotes (notamment Tarente ou par des représentants de communautés non grecques (notamment dauniennes ou peucétiennes ? L’A. esquisse aussi une réponse à ces questions en examinant les motifs guidant le Peintre de Darius lorsqu’il transpose et réactualise les débats de la polis athénienne du Ve siècle dans le contexte politique, géo-politique et social de la Grande Grèce du IVe siècle.

Full Text Available Este texto foi originalmente publicado no livro Villa Lituania, que aborda o trabalho homônimo, apresentado pela dupla de artistas lituanos Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas na 52ª Bienal de Veneza, em 2007. O título designa o edifício que até 1940 sediou, em Roma, a primeira embaixada da república independente da Lituania, mantido sob jurisdição das autoridades russas mesmo após a queda do bloco soviético, em 1989, e considerado, pela ex-república soviética, território nacional ocupado. O trabalho implicou na construção de um pombal na Villa Lituania e numa série de ações de conotação política e social em Veneza, Roma e Vilna, cidade onde a dupla reside. Os artistas são conhecidos internacionalmente pela dimensão política e social que pretendem infundir a suas ações. Não obstante a forte carga ideológica que envolveu a intervenção de Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas na Bienal de Veneza, neste ensaio o autor, tributário da tradição marxista, demonstra notável ceticismo em relação à potência crítica do discurso marxista evocado em parte significativa da arte contemporânea.This text has been originally published in the book Villa Lituania, which approaches the homonymous work presented by the lithuanian artists Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas, at the 52ª Venice Biennial, in 2007.

The work involved the creation of a pigeon loft at Villa Lituania building, as well as a series of actions targeted at social and politic issues in Venice, Rome and Vilnius, where the tandem lives. Socially and politically addressed actions have made the artists internationally known. Notwithstanding the strong ideological drive

A total lunar eclipse occurred during the night preceding the decisive Battle of Gaugamela (20th September 331 BCE), when the Macedonian army, led by Alexander the Great, finally defeated the Persian king Darius and his army. This astronomical event, well known to historians, had a relevant role on the battle outcome. The eclipse was described in detail by Babylonian astronomers, though, unfortunately, the text of their report has only partially been preserved. We have reconstructed the evolution of the phenomenon as it appeared to the observer in Babylonia, by using the positional astronomy code "Planetario V2.0". On the base of this reconstruction we suggest a number of integrations to the lost part of the text, allowing a finer astrological interpretation of the eclipse and of its influence on the mood of the armies that set against each other on the following morning.

Full Text Available RESUMO Este artigo tem como objetivo abordar os impactos culturais da Primeira Guerra Mundial no Brasil de uma perspectiva pouco trabalhada na literatura: o cenário musical carioca. Partindo de trabalhos recentes sobre a importância da propaganda empreendida pelas nações em conflito em países neutros, analisamos os impactos de duas ações nesse âmbito: os concertos e as conferências músico-literárias realizadas pela Liga Brasileira pelos Aliados e a estada do músico francês Darius Milhaud como adido cultural no Brasil. Nossa ideia é analisar como os embates culturais, entre uma cultura latina e outra germânica, foram trabalhados por meio desses eventos e contribuíram significativamente para o estreitamento da aliança cultural do Brasil com os países aliados, especialmente a França.

Highlights: ► The characteristics of a microgrid composed of SOFCs and tidal power generators were investigated. ► The CO 2 emissions of this microgrid were calculated based on an oceanographic investigation. ► The frequency and wave form quality of the electric power system were investigated. ► The voltage regulation and reactive power control of the electric power system need to be improved. -- Abstract: The development of local energy systems is important to curtailing global warming and improving public safety. Therefore, in this work, the basic performance of an independent microgrid consisting of tidal power generators, photovoltaics, fuel cells, and heat pumps to locally produce energy for local consumption was analyzed. Fast tidal currents near inlets that join lakes to the sea were converted into electrical energy via a three-phase synchronized generator connected to Darius water turbines. On the basis of the results of an oceanographic survey, the production of electricity and the CO 2 emissions of each generator were calculated using balanced equations for electricity and heat. The calculations indicated that 33% of the CO 2 emissions were associated with the energy supplied through conventional methods during the summer season. Although the frequency and waveform of the electricity of the microgrid were high quality, improvement in the voltage regulation was still required.

Full Text Available This article states that, with his narrative, the author of Daniel 6 creates the presence of Elohim outside Jerusalem and Israel, within non-Israelite environments. Applying a body-space frameset to the texts of Daniel 6 helps to read the text as a construction of concepts. With his narrative the author creates the presence of Elohim outside Jerusalem and Israel, within non-Israelite environments. Furthermore, a spatial frameset shows that the story of Daniel 6 can be read as a conclusion to a larger narrative that stretches from Daniel 1–6. In this narrative the author utilises spatial concepts such as the character of Daniel; the lion’s den; Jerusalem and King Darius, to establish the omnipresence of the God of Israel. In constructing this presence of-God reality the author conveys a message of hope and trust in the authority of the God of Israel. In this regard Daniel 6 is not just a story about the character Daniel being persecuted for his faith; rather it is a story about the God of Israel establishing his presence and his ability to act through and within space and time.
Full Text Available Erythrocytes, thrombocytes, lymphocytes and neutrophils were the principal blood cell types found in the blood of Clarias batrachus, Ophicephalus striatus, Oreochromis mossambicus and Oreochromis niloticus. Eosinophils and basophils were observed in Ophicephalus striatus but were absent in Clarias batrachus. Eosinophils but no basophils were seen in Oreochromis mossambicus and Oreochromis niloticus. Along with mature erythrocytes, immature, dividing, senile, and disintegrated erythrocytes were also observed from the circulating blood of the four fish species.From Clarias batrachus, eight species of helminths were recovered, namely, Cichlidogyrus sclerosus, Actinocleidus sp., Phyllodistomum sp., Opegaster minima, Gauhatiana batrachii, Bovienia serialis, Procamallanus darius, and Philometra sp. The parasites recovered from Ophicephalus striatus were Diplostomulum sp., Camallanus ophicephali, Arqulus indicus, and Lernaea cyprinacea. Cichlidogyrus sclerosus and Transversotrema laruei were collected from Oreochromis mossambicus and Oreochromis niloticus; from the latter, Gyrodactylus medius was also recovered. The average parasite burden was generally low.Parasitized and unparasitized fishes were active and appeared healthy. Blood values of parasitized fishes showed few significant differences from those of unparasitized fish groups. No parasitized fish group showed significant reduction in mean hematocrit and RBC count or significant increase in mean WBC count and mean % neutrophils in comparison with unparasitized group of the same fish species.
On 29 September, CERN celebrated its 60th anniversary with a gala celebration. Hundreds of CERN staff members and users, dignitaries from CERN Member States and representatives of international organisations filled the marquee for a ceremony featuring speeches as well as music from the EU Youth Orchestra. CERN Recruitment Unit section leader Anna Cook was called in at the last minute to host the ceremony. Anna had just got back from a run on her day off when she got the call. On the line CERN60 project leader Sascha Schmeling, Globe manager Bernard Pellequer and video editor Jacques Fichet had a problem. French-Swiss journalist Darius Rochebin, who had been pegged to host CERN's 60th anniversary ceremony, had been forced to cancel at the last minute, just three days before the event. Would Anna host the celebration – a ceremony to be attended by hundreds and broadcast around the world for all to see? After asking whether it was a joke, she said: “OK, I&rsquo...

U.K. Sediment Initiative 2009: Developing Multidisciplinary Sediment Dynamics Research in a Strategic Context;Liverpool, United Kingdom, 27-29 April 2009; A workshop funded by the U.K. Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) brought together U.K.-based researchers, stakeholders, and policy makers with an interest in sediment processes to foster collaborative links and to help NERC theme leaders develop future Theme Action Plans (TAPs). This could be achieved only by identifying gaps in knowledge and prioritizing research needs toward formulating a U.K. sediment transport research strategy. More than 50 participants from NERC research and collaborative centers, U.K. higher education institution researchers, industry consultants, and government departments and agencies attended the workshop. The workshop was divided into three parts. First, in an introduction, guest speakers discussed the importance of sediment transport from different perspectives. The speakers included Darius Campbell (U.K. Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs) on policy drivers, Richard Whitehouse (HR Wallingford, Ltd.) and David Lambkin (ABPMer, Ltd.) on industry needs, John Rees (NERC theme leader) on the NERC TAPs and possible funding opportunities, Alan Davies (University of Bangor) on the academic research perspective, and Chris Sherwood (U.S. Geological Survey) on international insight on large sediment transport projects and on developments of the U.S. National Community Sediment Transport Model project. Second, in a series of breakout sessions, participants considered the stakeholders’ needs, the different dynamic areas of the coastal ocean, and the process time scales. Third, the workshop group discussed possible funding streams and ways to better formulate a concerted research plan for presentation to funding bodies.

Since last decade a lot of new field researches (supported by MEBE and DARIUS programmes) were carried out in order to clarify the tectonic evolution of the South Caucasus and Eastern Black Sea regions. A summary of these improvements are as following: 1. Evidence of only one suture zone in the Lesser Caucasus: the Sevan-Akera suture zone as the eastward continuity of the Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan one. 2. Timing and modalities of the Upper Cretaceous obduction process of the Sevan-Akera back-arc basin. 3. Paleolatitude reconstruction of the Taurides-Anatolides-South Armenia microplate (TASAM) since the Late Cretaceous 4. Paleocene to Miocene tectonic evolution of the collision zone between Eurasia and the TASAM. 5. Structures and propagation of the Lesser Caucasus and Greater Causasus foreland basins from Paleocene to Miocene. 6. Structures of the inverted Paleocene-Eocene Adjara-Trialeti basin of the Eurasian margin and timing of deformations from Lesser Caucasus to Greater Caucasus. 7. New stratigraphic data from the Crimea Mountain which argues for a Lower Cretaceous rifting of the Eastern Black Sea. According to aforementioned results and previous studies, this widespread zone (from the Eastern Black Sea to the Lesser Caucasus) appears act as a large puzzle of heterogeneous lithospheres (continental, oceanic, arc, back-arc basins) since the Early Cretaceous. This is probably why this area has differently reacted in time and space to the northward collision of the TASAM with Eurasia since the Late Cretaceous and then of Arabian plate since the Oligo-Miocene. It seems that some lithospheres which have cold mantellic behavior (especially the Black Sea) react as rigid blocks, while others with a continental origin, reheated by magmatism, (as the Taurides-Anatolides) were extruded to the west or bended as an orocline (as the Lesser Caucasus, the Pontides). This is why some main questions remain, are not solved and are still debated. 1. The continuity of main structures

Turkish orogenic belt is compound of several palaeogeographic units which amalgamated in late Mesozoic-Cenozoic time. Palaeogeographic reconstructions are still debateable owing to the complex, multistage geological development. A new scenario is proposed here based on recently published information and new data acquired in the frame of the DARIUS Programme. At the end of the Palaeozoic, all the continental domains south of the Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan suture were located within the eastern part of the north-Gondwana margin. The Late Permian-Triassic period was characterised by widespread rifting leading to the opening of various deep-sea basins: between the Tavşanlı and Afyon zones and the Menderes massif (Pindos basin), between the Central Anatolian Block and Anatolia (Intra-Tauride basin), and between the southeastern Taurus and the Bitlis block. In most of the Taurus, a carbonate platform started to develop although parts remained emerge. During the Jurassic, there was continued opening of the Mesogean Ocean (future East Mediterranean Sea). Anatolia and Taurus drifted northwards. The Taurus units remained as a carbonate platform. In its southeast part, a rift separated the Bitlis platform from the northern platform. Changes are most obvious in the Anatolian region. South of the Menderes platform, a trough developed and separated the Bey Daǧları from the Menderes units. The Kızılca pelagic series, similar to the Lycian series, accumulated within this trough. North of the Menderes platform, the Lycian pelagic series accumulated, extending westwards into the Pindos series. This pelagic area was connected to the Tethys Ocean by passages through a neritic archipelago, as represented by the eastern extremity of the Pelagonian units and the western extremity of the Afyon units. The northern part of this area could be where the "Bornova zone series" accumulated. During the Late Jurassic in the Hellenides, ophiolites that had formed between the northern Apulian
