    Full Text Available The Best of Both Worlds: Success factors of Turkish-Dutch innovative entrepreneurs In recent years, a number of countries, among them the Netherlands, attach great importance to stimulating the economic development in the country, by promoting entrepreneurship in general and within the ethnic and cultural entrepreneurial groups in particular. Innovation is generally the result of an interactive process involving synergy between the diverse backgrounds and characteristics. Based on a qualitative research, this article provides an overview of insights in the critical success factors of Turkish-Dutch innovative entrepreneurs in the Netherlands. The success factors of ethnic entrepreneurs are approached in this study from three different dimensions: individual factors, social factors, and environmental factors. The individual factors are presented as personality traits and personal motivations. The social factors are discussed from the perspective of social networks, socio-cultural and socio-economic characteristics. As for environmental factors, they are divided into regional characteristics as well as the availability of resources and the presence of opportunities. Turkish-Dutch entrepreneurs, also called “ethnic entrepreneurs”, appear proficient in linking different innovation opportunities to their own strengths. They are operating better in both worlds, and are successfully navigating between the two cultures. This article also formulates several suggestions for the Dutch government, business world and educational institutions to stimulate innovation. Het beste van beide werelden: Succesfactoren van Turks-Nederlandse innovatieve ondernemers De laatste jaren hechten vele landen, onder andere Nederland, er groot belang aan om de economische ontwikkelingen op een hoger niveau te tillen door ondernemerschap in het algemeen, en binnen de etnische en culturele groepen in het bijzonder, te stimuleren.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jan A. Erasmus

    2014-09-01

    Full Text Available Artikel 2 van die Nederlandse Geloofsbelydenis bely dat God deur twee middele geken word, te wete deur middel van die skepping, onderhouding en regering van die wêreld (waaronder die wetenskap en deur die heilige en goddelike Woord (die Bybel. Hierdie belydenis is van groot belang vir die gesprek tussen Wetenskap en Teologie. In hierdie artikel word gepoog om die verskille, maar ook die ooreenkomste tussen hierdie twee middele van openbaring uit te lig, elkeen tot sy reg te laat kom, maar hulle ook in balans met mekaar te stel. Die wyse waarop te werk gegaan word, is die volgende: eers word gestel wat vooronderstellings is, asook die plek wat vooronderstellings in die beoefening van wetenskap sowel as geloof inneem. Daarna word nagevors watter perspektiewe artikel 2 van die Nederlandse Geloofsbelydenis as geloofsvooronderstelling vir die wetenskaps- en teologiebeoefening respektiewelik bied. Hieruit word ’n aantal gevolgtrekkings gemaak wat kan help om die problematiek in die wetenskap-geloofsgesprek op te los. Die kernbevinding van hierdie artikel is die volgende: Vanweë die verskil in die aard en die doel tussen Bybelfeite en wetenskaplike navorsingsresultate kan en sal klaarblyklike harmonieprobleme tussen die Skrif en die wetenskap ontstaan. Hierdie is egter slegs klaarblyklike probleme, omdat ’n verrekening van die verskil in die aard en die bedoeling van die wetenskapresultate en die Bybelfeite hierdie probleem sal oplos. Article 2 of the Belgic Confession as faith presupposition in the science-faith debate. Article 2 of the Belgic Confession confesses that God can be known by two means: firstly by studying the creation, preservation and government of the universe (i.e. science and secondly by studying the Word of God (the Bible. This confession is very important for the discussion between science and faith. In this article the similarities, but also the differences between these two means of revelation are researched. The aim is to

    This Roadmap is the result of the covenant signed by the Dutch glass industry and the Dutch national government in 2009 on a Long Term Agreement on Energy Efficiency. Participating companies committed to continuous improvement in energy performance in both manufacturing processes as well as the supply chain from raw material to final product. The Dutch glass industry has undertaken a strategic study regarding the possibilities of achieving far-reaching energy efficiency improvement by 2030. The overall industry's target is to realise an energy efficiency improvement of 25%, compared to its energy consumption and production level of 2009. Several related areas were identified for actions and measures for energy efficiency improvement: (1) Alternatives to primary raw materials; (2) Intensified use of secondary raw materials (cullet); (3) Innovations in batch preparation; (4) Innovations in glass composition; (5) Innovations in process control; (6) Innovations in furnace design; (7) New methods of waste heat recovery; (8) Improved performance of glass products [Dutch] Dit rapport is tot stand gekomen in het kader van de Meerjarenafspraak Energie-Efficientie ETS (Emission Trading System) ondernemingen, ook wel het MEE-convenant genoemd. Dit convenant nodigt de deelnemende sectoren uit tot het opstellen van een Routekaart voor 2030. De Routekaart is een strategische studie die inzichtelijk maakt hoe invulling wordt gegeven aan het realiseren van energie-efficientie verbeteringen binnen de bedrijven en in de keten op de route naar 2030.

    PART ONE: RESEARCH FRAMEWORKThe rapid changes in Dutch agriculture since 1950 have had important spatial implications. Because agriculture makes such extensive claims on the space available in the Netherlands, these implications are evident in nearly all rural areas. Changes in the spatial requirements for agriculture, as much as its spatial effects, come readily to mind. In the past decades both have been of more or less intensive government concern in areas such as physical planning, land d...

    Full Text Available Women and Child Rearing since the Late Nineteenth Century: The Speciality of the Dutch CaseIn the last two centuries only a few people would contest that Dutch mothers should raise their children. Until the end of the nineteenth century this task often went together with women’s labour. From that point until the 1960s there was a special period in Dutch history, with the great majority of mothers devoting themselves full-time to motherhood and only a very small minority working outside the home. This deviation from a European pattern – almost a Dutch Sonderweg in the first half of the twentieth century – changed into another deviation from the 1970s. Then more and more Dutch mothers started to work outside the home, eventually even in greater numbers than in other European countries, but with the majority of mothers preferring part-time work. As a result, it became a matter of course for Dutch mothers to combine working outside the home with raising their own children. Dat Nederlandse vrouwen hun eigen kinderen behoren op te voeden is eenopvatting die in de laatste tweehonderd jaar weinig is aangevochten. Tot het einde van de negentiende eeuw ging dat vaak samen met vrouwenarbeid. Toen ontstond een bijzondere Nederlandse situatie waarbij tot in de jaren zestig bijna alle moeders zich volledig aan het moederschap wijdden en nauwelijks buitenshuis werkten. Deze afwijking van het Europese patroon – een Nederlandse Sonderweg – veranderde vanaf de jaren zeventig in haar omkering toen gehuwde vrouwen steeds vaker gingen werken, zelfs vaker dan moeders in andere Europese landen. Ook in een ander opzicht pakten Nederlandse moeders het anders aan dan inandere Europese landen: ze werkten in meerderheid in deeltijd. Tegelijk werken en opvoeden van de eigen kinderen werden vanaf toen een vanzelfsprekendheid.

    Full Text Available The purpose of this research is to discover the needs a value assessment and the preceding research should fulfill, so that they may serve as a useful framework for the development and reviewing of a conservation plan for a monument. This objective has been prompted by recent developments in Dutch conservation practice and the demand resulting from this for a new understanding and process of valuation for built heritage. In the Netherlands, but also elsewhere, the development of the valuation of monuments kept pace with the emergence, development and institutionalization of built heritage conservation. Various social, political, economic and scientific developments, inside and outside the field of conservation, led up to the emergence of value assessment, in the sense of explicitly naming the values of a monument and methodically founding a value-based judgment as the basis for the monument’s conservation. Social, political and economic developments still influence the discussion about the how and why of value assessment. In addition, new insights and ideas from the art historical and architectural disciplines, and from other professional and academic fields related to the conservation of cultural heritage, are reflected in the way value assessment is approached and such an assessment is used in heritage conservation. To arrive at a contemporary approach to value assessment, it is important to look back at the past of values, valuation and value assessment, on the results it yielded us so far and the direction where it can or should go. Therefore, this thesis focuses on why and how value assessment emergence, how it developed, how it was used in the practice of built heritage conservation and which demands are currently made on the content and the procedural embedding of a value assessment and its preceding research. To that purpose, the following research questions are formulated: • What was the reason for the emergence of the instrument

In contrast, we observe an efflorescence of cycling history abroad which can serve as a source of inspiration for future research on the history of the bicycle in Dutch society. This article, while highlighting the significance of cycling history in general, provides an overview of the publications on the history of cycling in the Netherlands in the light of recent international research. It does so by focussing on four main themes: technology and transportation history, economic and business history, sports history and social-cultural history.

    Full Text Available The Problematic Internationalization of 1960s NetherlandsThe grand narrative of the 1960s is of a worldwide, socio-cultural movement with a reform agenda. The year ‘1968’ plays a central role in the discourse about the ‘Sixties worldwide’. This doubles up as a reference to a socio-cultural reality on the one hand and a metaphor for change on the other. The Netherlands also had to face an expanding, selfaware youth culture, rowdy student movements, alternative lifestyles and calls for emancipation. These developments, both historically and historiographically, do not necessarily run parallel with the concept of the Global Sixties. This paper traces the progress of the study of the Netherlands in the 1960s, which was carried out from a national perspective, and examines how the research associated with it relates to the international context mentioned earlier.

    Full Text Available Tijdens het interbellum was de Franse literatuur een belangrijk referentiepunt voor met name de katholieke en de vrijzinnige, niet zuilgebonden pers in Nederland. Men nam een voorbeeld aan grote katholieke schrijvers als Mauriac en Bernanos of men spiegelde zich aan de romans van vroeg-twintigste-eeuwse modernisten als Gide en Proust. Onderzoek naar de receptie van de Franse literatuur laat zien dat de beeldvorming hieromtrent in de Nederlandse literatuurgeschiedschrijving aanpassing behoeft. Nederlandse literatuurhistorici als Ruiter en Smulders, en Van Bork en Laan, zijn vaak te zeer gericht op het beschrijven van een diachrone ontwikkeling en hebben te weinig oog voor de synchrone diversiteit aan opvattingen. In welke zin, zo vraag ik me hier af, kan een internationaal georiënteerd tijdschriftenonderzoek een bijdrage leveren aan de Nederlandse literatuurgeschiedschrijving?

Indonesian victims had forced the Dutch government to take this step by suing it in two consecutive civil lawsuits. Taking legal steps had offered these victims a chance to demand justice and have their voices heard in the land of the perpetrators. However the legal approach to bringing historical injustice to public attention can also have adverse effects. It confines public debate to very specific types of incidents that fall within the parameters of legal responsibility and legal evidence. Moreover, the fact that apologies have to be legally enforced diminishes the chance of successful reconciliation – the apparent goal of apologies. The juridification of speaking about historical apologies is therefore a double-edged sword. In de zomer van 2013 bood Nederland voor het eerst in de geschiedenis officieel excuses aan voor misdaden begaan tijdens de onafhankelijkheidsoorlog in Indonesië (1945-1949. Indonesische slachtoffers hadden de Nederlandse regering hiertoe gedwongen door middel van twee civiele rechtszaken. Het bewandelen van de juridische weg verschafte aan hen een stem in het land van de daders en gaf ze een kans hun rechten op te eisen. Maar de juridische benadering van het spreken over historisch onrecht kan ook keerzijden hebben. Het beperkt namelijk het publieke debat tot nauw omlijnde gevallen die binnen de parameters van de juridische bewijsvoering vallen. Bovendien zorgt het feit dat excuses juridisch afgedwongen moeten worden ervoor dat de kans op verzoening – het doel van de excuses – aanmerkelijk vermindert. De juridisering van het spreken over historische excuses is daarmee een tweesnijdend zwaard.

    Article 7 of the recently adopted Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) obliges the EU member states to achieve 1.5% yearly efficiency improvements during the period 2014-2020, culminating in a cumulative savings target. This report describes the way the Netherlands intends to meet the article 7 obligations, as requested by the European Commission. The EED offers the member states various degrees of freedom with regard to the definition of the target and the way it is met. Hence, this report addresses the choices of the Netherlands and their consequences for the Dutch target and the realised energy savings. A broad-lined description of the choices and overall results is complemented by extensive annexes that offer technical descriptions and detailed numbers [Dutch] Dit rapport beschrijft de manier waarop Nederland aan haar doelstelling voor artikel 7 van de Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) denkt te voldoen. Het is gebaseerd op de interpretaties en keuzes die de Nederlandse overheid heeft gemaakt. Artikel 7 van de Energy Efficiency Directive verplicht Nederland tot het realiseren van een efficiencyverbetering van 1,5% per jaar in de periode 2014-2020, als cumulatieve doelstelling. Voor Nederland betekent dit - rekening houdend met de vrijheidsgraden van de EED - een doelstelling van minimaal 482 PJ besparing op het finaal energiegebruik. Nederland verwacht een cumulatieve besparing te bereiken tussen de 387 en 562 PJ in finale termen, waarvan 87 tot 186 PJ door nieuw beleid.

Het doel van deze Green Deal is een 100% duurzame betonketen in 2050, plus het zetten van concrete stappen daartoe op korte termijn. Vanuit deze Green Deal hebben Rijkswaterstaat en het MVO Netwerk Beton aan CE Delft gevraagd een analyse te doen van de milieu-impact van betongebruik in de Nederlandse bouw inclusief een analyse van een aantal verbeteropties. In 2010 werd 14 miljoen m3 beton gebruikt in de Nederlandse bouw en ongeveer 550 kton aan wapeningsstaal. Dit betongebruik veroorzaakt in de hele keten een klimaatimpact van 3,5 Mton CO2 (= 1,7% van de Nederlandse nationale emissie). Er is ook gekeken naar de klimaatemissie van energiegebruik tijdens de gebruiksfase van woningen en kantoren in 2010. Als we alleen kijken naar energie voor verwarming van woningen die in 2010 zijn gebouwd, dan schatten we in dat met de huidige EPC-norm (0,8) de klimaatimpact van het betongebruik in een woning ongeveer gelijk staat aan de klimaatimpact van vijf jaar verwarmen van een woning.

    Full Text Available Een Program Theory benadering voor het theoretisch onderbouwen van sociale interventies: een casestudie van vijf Nederlandse maatjesprojectenSociale professionals worden steeds meer gevraagd het professioneel handelen te verantwoorden. De sociale sector weet zich echter slechts marginaal te verantwoorden en te profileren als kenniseigenaar op het eigen domein. Het aantal sociale interventies dat theoretisch dan wel wetenschappelijk onderbouwd is, is beperkt. In de literatuur zijn verschillende benaderingen te onderscheiden die een antwoord beogen te geven op de vraag hoe en op basis waarvan een sociale interventie verantwoord dient te worden. In dit artikel geven we een methodebeschrijving van de “Program Theory” benadering en reflecteren we aan de hand van een casestudie op de praktische en wetenschappelijke meerwaarde van deze methode voor het theoretisch onderbouwen van sociale interventies. We argumenteren dat een Program Theory benadering vanuit de uitgangspunten van het kritisch realisme een waardevolle aanvulling biedt op de “evidence-based practice” benadering, die vooral inzicht geeft in de effecten van een interventie. Een Program Theory aanpak levert daarnaast een verklarende theorie over de effectiviteit van de interventie en neemt de werking van de praktijkcontext hierin mee door een interventietheorie “bottom-up” te ontwikkelen vanuit de praktijk en deze theorie tevens te onderbouwen met wetenschappelijke evidentie. Deze benadering biedt daarmee een collaboratieve leeromgeving voor professionals en onderzoekers, door de werking van mechanismen binnen een praktijkcontext te onderzoeken en te expliciteren. Doordat sociale professionals eigenaarschap blijven houden over hun eigen interventietheorie draagt de benadering bovendien bij aan de professionalisering en versterking van de kennisbasis van het sociaal werk.  Theorizing social interventions using a Program Theory approach: a case study of five Dutch buddy

    information is available to estimate the possible risks of the remaining components in biogas. The approach in this study represents a worst case scenario because in common practice biogas will be mixed in the existing natural gas network before distributing it to greenhouses. It should be noted that even now, the use of flue gas emitted from combined heat power engines burning natural gas can result in nitrogen oxide concentrations that exceed the effective risk concentration under certain conditions. These effective risk concentrations have in some cases already resulted in negative effects on the growth and production of some greenhouse crops. These risks are independent of the use of biogas as fuel for combined heat power engines. If Dutch horticulturists are to use biogas on a large scale, it is essential that the maximum permissible concentrations be reduced for hydrogen fluoride (by a factor 20), sulphur dioxide (factor 2) and possibly benzene as well (factor 1.7). This is necessary in order to prevent these components becoming a potential risk to greenhouse crops. In addition, more research is advocated on the phytotoxicity of components for which insufficient information is presently available for the estimation of possible risks.

    Full Text Available The Years of Abundance: the Casimir Committee and Dutch Science Policy 1957–1970 In October 1958, a committee of six prominent Dutch scientists and industrial managers presented a brief report in which they requested a major increase of the science budget. This report has been described as a turning point in the history of science in the Netherlands, signaling the beginning of a decade of rapid growth of funding for ‘pure’ research. Surprisingly little is known about the backgrounds of this report, however. In this paper, I analyze its origin, its relation to contemporary higher education policy, and its consequences. As it turns out, the report was less revolutionary than is usually assumed: it mostly reinforced developments that had already begun earlier. Furthermore, Sputnik and the Cold War were not as important as is often claimed. This paper also suggests a reinterpretation of the justification of the government spending on academic research after the Second World War. Producing skilled researchers for industry was at least as important as produc- ing new knowledge.

Economie en samenleving in jaren van oorlog en bezettingThe Netherlands economy during World War II viewed from a Flemish/Belgian perspectiveHein Klemann’s book provides a general overview of the performance of the Dutch economy during World War II. It also deals with exploitation by the German war machine, production for the black market, price controls, and monetary and fiscal policies. The reconstructed macro-economic data, such as the evolution of real wages, is sometimes prone to serious methodological flaws. For other variables, such as agricultural production in 1945 and international trade, it is clear that more research is necessary to produce reliable indicators. Despite these critical remarks, Klemann’s book offers a valuable synthesis, and other countries, such as Belgium, can use it as a source of inspiration.

It describes how the Netherlands is doing, how we are doing compared to other countries. It also identifies bottlenecks and barriers that companies encounter in realizing their ambition to become greener, and the report looks across the border to learn from other countries. Based on this analysis, the report outlines opportunities for policy signals to facilitate the transition to a green, innovative and competitive Dutch economy [Dutch] Dit Signalenrapport richt zich op het raakvlak tussen vergroening en concurrentiekracht en vooral op de kansen die vergroening biedt.

    Full Text Available De capability approach als normatief-evaluatief kader voor sociale interventies: Kwalitatief onderzoek in India met inzichten voor de Vlaamse en Nederlandse praktijkIn deze kwalitatief-empirische casestudy wordt de Capability Approach (CA gehanteerd voor het evalueren van sociale interventies van de Indiase NGO Women Helpline ten opzichte van partnergerelateerd seksueel misbruik. Er werden 12 diepte-interviews en één groepsgesprek afgenomen met medewerkers van Women Helpline en slachtoffers van seksueel misbruik. Daarnaast werden twee semigestructureerde focusgroepen met tien mannelijke en tien vrouwelijke studenten georganiseerd. De analyse bracht een opvallende empowerment-paradox aan het licht tussen “well-being freedom” en “agency freedom”. Die paradox benadrukt de invloed van subjectieve en structurele factoren op de realisatie van welzijn. We besluiten dat wanneer de CA wordt ingezet als evaluatief kader voor sociale interventies het belangrijk is om bij onsuccesvolle interventies te kijken naar de externe invloeden die het individu beperken in zijn/haar agency freedom of de keuzes die hij/zij maakt ter realisatie van een waardig leven. Zo blijkt dat sommige vrouwen berusten in of zelfs kiezen voor een gewelddadige of objectief ongunstige partnerrelatie, ook na interventies en bewustmaken van hun mogelijkheden (verhoging well-being freedom, omdat deze vrouwen willen voldoen aan de patriarchale waarden in de samenleving.

    The formation of a new government in the Netherlands in 2010 caused a change of wind. The government opted for topsectors to boost the competitiveness of the Dutch economy, by designing a comprehensive policy agenda for the top nine sectors, which were identified as Water, Food, Horticulture, High Tech, Life Sciences, Chemistry, Energy, Logistics and the Creative Industry. The two main questions in this request for advice are: (1) What are the visible trends and developments in European research and innovation policy and what impact will they have on the Netherlands?; (2) How can the Netherlands best respond to changing policy context at European level to ensure that European research priorities and Dutch priorities keep matching? The advice of the Council starts with an overview of key developments and trends that are relevant to Dutch and European research and innovation policy. It does so against the background of a number of important challenges such as the economic crisis, globalisation and a paucity of private investment. The new European 'Innovation Union' policy aims to tackle these challenges and to enhance the competitiveness of Europe in relation to emerging economies as those of the BRIC countries. In this context, the EU believes that research and innovation can be used not only as a means of tackling major social challenges but also as a way out of the downward spiral of the economic crisis. New to this European policy is the added emphasis on knowledge utilisation and innovation. This shift may alter the desirable approach of the Netherlands to European policy. The Council then analyses the basic principles for the Dutch position in Europe and sets out the opportunities and threats of various policies under the Innovation Union for the top (and other) sectors. From this analysis, the Council draws conclusions about the relationship between the use of Dutch and European policy to strengthen Dutch and European sectors. Recommendations are (1

    In the Netherlands the clean tech-sector creates around 5 billion euro added value, almost 1% of Dutch GNP, and provides some 61,000 jobs (full-time equivalents). This is one of the main results of the present study, conducted by CE Delft for the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL) for use in the latter's 'signal report' on clean tech and competitiveness scheduled for publication in October 2013. The study shows that while clean tech is a rapidly growing sector of the Dutch economy, we are not yet among the leading players internationally. Over the period 1996-2010 aggregate production value grew by 6% a year on average. Since 2009 the crisis has led to a slump that can be observed globally. If the Netherlands is to become a top player, there needs to be significant improvement in the sector's innovation. This can be achieved through innovation incentives and a consistent market incentive policy. Water treatment technology and waste processing are examples of successful Dutch technologies that can inspire future choices [Dutch] De cleantech-sector in Nederland levert zo'n 5 miljard euro aan toegevoegde waarde, bijna 1% van Nederlandse economie en genereert 61.000 arbeidsplaatsen (voltijdsequivalenten).

    Full Text Available Between pragmatism and idealism: relations between Dutch astronomers and their Soviet colleagues during the Cold WarDuring the Cold War, outstanding astronomical research was conducted in the Netherlands, as well as in the Soviet Union. As there was a considerable overlap in research themes, astronomers in both countries stood to benefit from an exchange of ideas. During the Cold War, however, Soviet scientists were forced to withdraw from several international scientific organisations; foreign visits were minimised, and publication in foreign languages was forbidden. Moreover, several Soviet astronomers made highly derogatory statements about Western science. Nevertheless, communication and co-operation between Dutch and Soviet astronomers did not come to a halt in this period. Dutch astronomers even undertook considerable efforts to enable some of their Soviet colleagues to come to the West. Their reasons to do so varied, but ‘pragmatic internationalism’ seems to have been the mainspring motive. The Leiden astronomer Jan Hendrik Oort was the most prominent example of this movement. In some cases however, idealism was also a motive to involve the Soviets. For the Utrecht astronomer Marcel Minnaert, for example, co-operation with Soviet astronomers was in accordance with his ideal of international science. Contrary to what might have been expected in the Cold War period, the Dutch government was remarkably absent in this matter and did not interfere in the relations between Dutch and Soviet astronomers. This was most probably due the fact that the government considered astronomy a rather harmless field in science.

After the introduction and a view on the governmental policy follows a survey of the market and an overview of recent developments in the industry. Then follows an elaboration of the specific sub-sectors. These are separately analyzed on the basis of the SCP-model (Structure-Conduct-Performance framework) of Bain (1951), which provides information about the structural elements of the sector specific markets [Dutch] De onderzoeksvraag van deze studie luidt: geeft de huidige situatie in de afvalbranche aanleiding om tot nieuwe reguleringen over te gaan ter bevordering van de marktwerking in deze branche?

Vervolgens wordt dieper ingegaan op de specifieke deelsectoren. Deze worden los van elkaar geanalyseerd aan de hand van het SGR-model (Structuur-Gedrag-Resultaatschema) van Bain (1951), wat informatie verschaft over de structuurelementen van de sectorspecifieke markten.

    Full Text Available The contemporary Dutch language belongs to European multi-centered languages and has three variations: Dutch of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Dutch in Northern Belgium, and Dutch in Surinam. There are differences among the above variations which mainly regard the pronunciation and lexicon. The Flemish and Surinam variations pose a great challenge, especially for the translators of the Flemish and Surinam literature. Similarly, they pose also a significant theoretical and practical problem for the authors of one and two-language dictionaries of the Dutch language. The contemporary lexicography attempts to register the differences which one can find between the standard of the Dutch language and: its Northern Belgium variation, as well as its Surinam variation.

In this very paper there are described four printed Flemish-Dutch dictionaries and one online dictionary, we also characterize the Prisma Handwoordenboek Nederlands met onderscheid tussen het Belgisch-Nederlands en Nederlands-Nederlands met medewerking van W.

    Full Text Available Subject Evidence-Based Design in hospitals.   Problem What role can Evidence-Based Design have in the design of better hospitals?   Purpose To determine spatial (or: concrete qualities, scientifically proven to have a positive influence on the health and well being of patients and staff, in order to offer the architect a helping hand for designing better hospitals. These measures are drawn from research that has been done in the framework of Evidence-Based Design (EBD, which can be perceived as the scientific variant of the healing environment.   Relevance In the Dutch media the term healing environment is often used by architects, representatives of hospitals and researchers. Everyone provides their own content (colour, nature, treatment, hospitality, etc. to this collective concept. The determination of concrete design elements, with a proven positive effect for patients, can contribute to the design of better care environments.   Method and approach Literature research and case studies. EBD → elements → checklist → case studies in field research ↑ ---------- analysis ---------- ↑ Spatial measures were selected from scientific articles from Evidence-Based Design research that are applicable for an architect. Only those measures were selected for which the effect has been proven sufficiently. The selection was based on scientific articles that have been validated by EBD expert teams. The measures in this study cover waiting rooms, consultation rooms, nursing departments, patient rooms and day treatment areas. The measures have an effect on: • A positive contribution to the health of patients (chapter 3; • A positive contribution to the well being (less anxiety, stress of patients (chapter 4; • A positive contribution to the efficiency and effectiveness of staff (chapter 5.  The literature research gives information on how physical environmental interventions can contribute to the problems of the patient (such as lack of

    The title study, based on archive investigations in the Netherlands, the United States and Great Britain, deals with early phase of Dutch involvement in nuclear energy, that is up to the signing of the Euratom treaty in 1957. It concentrates upon the international aspects of Dutch activities in nuclear energy, especially upon relations with other countries active in the field. In chapter two the Dutch government policy regarding the strategic materials uranium and thorium is discussed. Attention is paid to the interest of the United States for such materials. It is explained why the Dutch government kept it a secret that they possessed a certain amount of uranium and why they negotiated the thorium reserves which were mined in the Netherlands East Indies (now Indonesia). In chapter three the Dutch policy in the United Nations regarding the so-called Baruch plan, being the USA-proposal for international control and management of the use of nuclear energy, and the counter proposal of the USSR, the Gromyko plan, in the period 1946-152 is outlined. In chapter four an overview is given of how the Dutch nuclear energy research in the first ten years after the Second World War was set up and organized. As a result of US president Eisenhower's 'Atoms for Peace' speech, held in December 1953, the Americans offered to cooperate with Western European countries, already involved in research on peaceful applications of nuclear energy. This change in the US-policy of secrecy is described in chapter five. The consequences of that speech are dealt with in chapter six. It resulted, amongst other things in the foundation of the Reactor Centre Netherlands (RCN), now Netherlands Energy Research Foundation (ECN). It is concluded that only in the last years of the period, studied in this thesis, the Netherlands reconciled itself to American supremacy, partly explained by the weakly developed political structure in the Netherlands regarding the nuclear energy policy. 17

    As part of the agreements within the framework of the Dutch Green Deal between Water Boards and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation (ELI) a research program has been set up which addresses the implementation of new developments that can improve energy efficiency in the treatment of waste water. Attention is paid to supercritical gasification, supercritical oxidation and conventional gasification. The study on conventional gasification is split into two phases: research into the economic feasibility in combination with TDH (thermal pressure hydrolysis) and drying, and next to that a pilot plant. This report concerns phase 1: economic feasibility [Dutch] Als onderdeel van de afspraken in het kader van de Green Deal tussen Waterschappen en het ministerie van ELI is een onderzoeksprogramma opgesteld gericht op het implementeren van nieuwe ontwikkelingen die de energie efficientie bij de verwerking van afvalwater kunnen verbeteren.

De studie naar conventionele vergassing is gesplitst in 2 fasen: onderzoek naar de economische haalbaarheid in combinatie met TDH (thermische druk hydrolyse), en drogen en daarnaast een onderzoek op pilot plant/praktijkschaal. In de onderhavige rapportage wordt fase 1, vaststellen van de economische haalbaarheid omschreven.

    The energy market is liberalized since 1 July 2004. The Dutch government has liberalized the energy market to stimulate competition between suppliers and to offer the consumer freedom of choice of their own energy supplier. As energy suppliers must put continuous effort in acquiring and preserving customers, the customers may expect better quality and service at relatively lower prices. In a well-functioning energy market the customer will benefit from the liberalisation. DTe (Dutch Office of Energy Regulation) is the regulator of the energy sector and supervises the energy companies adhering to the rules of the energy markets, protecting customers where needed. Moreover, DTe also monitors the developments in the energy markets. In the market monitor private consumers market DTe reports on the operating of the consumer market, also called the private consumers market. [mk]. [Dutch] Sinds 1 juli 2004 is de energiemarkt geliberaliseerd. De Nederlandse overheid heeft de energiemarkt vrijgegeven om de concurrentie tussen leveranciers te bevorderen en de consument keuzevrijheid te geven om zelf een eigen energieleverancier te kiezen. Omdat energieleveranciers zich hierdoor telkens weer moeten inspannen om klanten te werven en te behouden, kunnen consumenten betere kwaliteit en service verwachten tegen verhoudingsgewijs lagere prijzen. In een goed werkende energiemarkt plukt de consument dus de vruchten van de liberalisering. DTe is de toezichthouder op de energiesector en ziet erop toe dat energiebedrijven zich houden aan de spelregels van de energiemarkten en beschermt consumenten waar nodig. Daarnaast heeft DTe de taak om de ontwikkelingen op de energiemarkten in de gaten te houden. In de marktmonitor kleinverbruikersmarkt rapporteert DTe over de werking van de consumentenmarkt, ook wel de kleinverbruikersmarkt genoemd.

    Radioactive waste in the Netherlands is collected, treated and stored by COVRA (Centrale Organisatie Voor Radioactief Afval) in the interim storage facility for at least 100 a. After this period of long-term storage, geological disposal is foreseen. The policy is based on a step-wise decision process in which all decisions are taken to ensure safe disposal in a repository, but without excluding unforeseen alternative solutions that might develop in the future. OPERA is the Dutch acronym for research program into geological disposal of radioactive waste. It started in 2011 and is running for five years. The OPERA Research plan is developed by NRG in close collaboration with COVRA. Radioactive waste disposal in the Netherlands is at an early, conceptual phase. The aim of Opera is to develop a first preliminary safety case to structure the research necessary for the eventual deployment of a repository in the Netherlands. The OPERA research program aims at a close cooperation with the Belgian research program on radioactive waste disposal. The result of OPERA will be to detail a first roadmap for the long-term research on geological disposal of radioactive waste in the Netherlands, based initially on a re-evaluation of existing safety and feasibility studies conducted more than ten years ago, making use of present international and, wherever possible, national knowledge. This will be done by developing initial and conditional safety cases for generic GDFs in Zechstein rock salt and Boom Clay formations in the Netherlands. The goal in OPERA is to develop initial safety cases that are intended to mark the start of the research development process and to iterate these as knowledge grows to new developed insights. The safety case is conditional since plausible assumptions must later be confirmed in a safety case e.g. for site selection. Dutch, Belgian, German, English and French organizations participate in OPERA. These organizations can be found in the two documents with

    Full Text Available The position of the historiography of the Dutch political partiesFor a long time time, the historiography of the Dutch political parties was used by different groups in their struggle for political and social emancipation; groups such as labourers, Protestant ‘small folk’ and Catholics. This approach, in which society is vertically segregated in pillars, was deeply hagiographic and one-sided in nature. In order to inspire their supporters, any achievements gained were set against the background of the higher ideals that these liberating movements strove to realise. The need for, and with it the right to exist of, this pillarised approach towards historiography diminished as these groups gradually became fully emancipated after World War II. During the 1970s and 1980s, this was largely replaced by a modern, more objective and scientific approach of the political party. A historiographical survey is presented in this article showing the results of this scientific historiography during the last fifteen to twenty years (taking as its starting point the inventory in P.

In the Netherlands one might discern three ‘populist moments’ – a period between 1916 and 1918, a period between 1963 and 1967 and a period which started in 2001/2002 and which seems not yet to be over. In electoral terms the first and second populist moments were rather weak. Both times the populist rhetoric was incorporated by (one of the established parties. In 2001/2002 the established parties again attempted to incorporate populism but with less result.

    Full Text Available Oral history and the strange demise of Dutch ChristianityDuring the last forty years, Dutch society has gone through a sudden and far-reaching dechristianisation process. Sociologists specialising in religion have monitored this development and explained it using the secularist theory. However, an exploratory oral history approach, based on 43 interviews, and using the modern social history of West European religion, propels us in another direction. The vibrant Dutch Christianity of the 1950s was based on collective rituals and discursive practices that were taken for granted. Although it was possible for individuals to become well-versed in this religion, they did not use the religious rites and rituals in order to think about their own situation. This peculiar nature of Dutch Christianity made it very vulnerable to the cultural revolution of the 1960s, interpreted here as the rise within mass-culture of the practices and ideals of the expressive and reflexive self. People did not choose to leave the churches, but instead drifted away, almost without realising it, as the religious practices from their youth gradually became less important within their lives. The churches were unable to create a form of Christianity that could adapt itself to the new ideal and practices of the self and effectively compete in the cultural marketplace.

    Full Text Available Some concepts in contemporary art works, dealing with some life aspects and passed through the sensitive and expressive test, are formulated in this paper and shed light on the foundation of researches about singular phenomenons of the existence. For this, it is argued that there are researches belonging to arts, fundamental researches that compromise the certainty of the assumptions where the sense system of a context has its bases (epoch, culture, nation, region. These researches come ahead of the researches of the rational-discursive enunciation fields, given that the last ones haven’t passed any protocol accepted yet by any community. To bring into play the certainty is done by a cognitive movement named by Martin Heidegger unconcealment [Unverborgenheit], and it consist on the interruption of the habituality of the beings who form the (trustworthy family setting to put into perspective the fundamental structures that allow to produce its sense. The unconcealment, typical in art and in creative actions, sets up an event that stops the solidity of the established (social, ethical, technical, scientific, philosophical order, and unleashes conditions for changing the lifestyles hold until then.

    A conference to raise awareness In the Netherlands, little research on earth walls has been done. To improve attention for earth walls, a number of organisations, including Geoheritage NL, organized a conference at the RCE, the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands. The conference* presented a state-of-the-art of research done. The book with the presentations, and extra case studies added, was published in December 2012. The book concludes with a research action list, including earth science research, and can be downloaded freely from the internet. It has English summaries. The earth science aspects Historical earth walls do not only add cultural value to a landscape, but also geodiversity value. Apart from geomorphological aspects, the walls contain information about past land- and climate conditions: - They cover up a former topography, a past landscape. A relevant source of scientific information where lands are levelled, as is the case in many parts of The Netherlands; - The soil formation under the earth wall is a reference soil. The soil formation in the top of the wall gives insight in the rate of soil formation in relationship with the age and parent material of the wall; - The soil profiles of different age have ecological significance. Older walls with a more pronounced soil formation often hold forest flora that has disappeared from the surrounding environment, such as historical bush or tree species, autogenetic DNA material or a specific soil fauna; - The materials in the earth walls tell about the process of wall-building. Paleosols and sedimentary structures in the earth walls, in the gullies and colluvial fans along the walls contain information about past land management and climate. - The eroded appearance of the earth walls is part of their history, and contain information about past management and land conditions, has ecological relevance, for example for insects, and is often visually more interesting. Insight in the rates of erosion are

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2013-04-01

    Full Text Available Being in field of Orthopaedic research since last 6 years, I have personally been witness to the rapid change in landscape of Othopaedic Research and also medical research in general. The sheer volumes of publications is overwhelming to the extent of being mostly ineffective in providing significant positive addition to the current literature. “There are too many variables” is one of my favorite phrase when I start to explain something to myself. Looking at as many variables as we can think of, makes us understand concepts within the limitations of given variables. Something similar to Ashby’s law that we spoke about in last Editorial [1]. However when we try to apply this to word ‘Research’ the amount of subjective stereotype that is associated with the word defeats all attempt to decipher and communicate clearly. Originally word Research derived from French ‘Researche’ simply means ‘Pursuit of Knowledge’. We as medical practitioners in search of better treatment for our patients are always in pursuit of knowledge. This knowledge is mostly build individually and is learned from individual experience and learning. This is a subjective body of knowledge and this is what makes one surgeon better than another. But is this ‘Research’? Yes it is Research and it serves the main purpose of medical research that is to improve the treatment given to patients. However this is a limited form of research, limited by individual’s ability and capacity. It also does not subject itself to rigorous ‘scientific methods’ and may not be acceptable to a community of ‘Modern Researchers’. Another form of Research of pursuit of knowledge is again from the clinics and from reading journals and books. A collaboration of clinical experience and written word adds a more thoughtful way of pursuing knowledge. This I think is the way majority of medical practitioners acquire knowledge. This keeps them updated and also helps them provide good

However, the guidelines used for research ethics review are very similar across a wide variety of jurisdictions. The paramount importance of protecting the privacy and confidentiality of research participants is discussed at length. Particular emphasis is placed on the process of informed consent, and step-by-step practical guidelines are described. The issue of research in vulnerable populations is touched upon and guidelines are provided. Practical advice is provided for researchers to guide their interactions with research ethics boards.

Here we address a specific area of inquiry overlooked by previous studies: whether and how reading, thinking and writing indeed share the same learning potentials as the practical foundation for research-based teaching.......

    This article presents the ethical issues in animal research using a combined approach of ethical theory and analysis of scientific findings with bearing on the ethical analysis. The article opens with a general discussion of the moral acceptability of animal use in research. The use of animals...... in research is analyzed from the viewpoint of three distinct ethical approaches: contractarianism, utilitarianism, and animal rights view. On a contractarian view, research on animals is only an ethical issue to the extent that other humans as parties to the social contract care about how research animals...... are faring. From the utilitarian perspective, the use of sentient animals in research that may harm them is an ethical issue, but harm done to animals can be balanced by benefit generated for humans and other animals.

    Survey research is a unique methodology that can provide insight into individuals' perspectives and experiences and can be collected on a large population-based sample. Specifically, in plastic surgery, survey research can provide patients and providers with accurate and reproducible information to assist with medical decision-making. When using survey methods in research, researchers should develop a conceptual model that explains the relationships of the independent and dependent variables. The items of the survey are of primary importance. Collected data are only useful if they accurately measure the concepts of interest. In addition, administration of the survey must follow basic principles to ensure an adequate response rate and representation of the intended target sample. In this article, the authors review some general concepts important for successful survey research and discuss the many advantages this methodology has for obtaining limitless amounts of valuable information.

  9. Research reactors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Merchie, Francois

    2015-10-01

    This article proposes an overview of research reactors, i.e. nuclear reactors of less than 100 MW. Generally, these reactors are used as neutron generators for basic research in matter sciences and for technological research as a support to power reactors. The author proposes an overview of the general design of research reactors in terms of core size, of number of fissions, of neutron flow, of neutron space distribution. He outlines that this design is a compromise between a compact enough core, a sufficient experiment volume, and high enough power densities without affecting neutron performance or its experimental use. The author evokes the safety framework (same regulations as for power reactors, more constraining measures after Fukushima, international bodies). He presents the main characteristics and operation of the two families which represent almost all research reactors; firstly, heavy water reactors (photos, drawings and figures illustrate different examples); and secondly light water moderated and cooled reactors with a distinction between open core pool reactors like Melusine and Triton, pool reactors with containment, experimental fast breeder reactors (Rapsodie, the Russian BOR 60, the Chinese CEFR). The author describes the main uses of research reactors: basic research, applied and technological research, safety tests, production of radio-isotopes for medicine and industry, analysis of elements present under the form of traces at very low concentrations, non destructive testing, doping of silicon mono-crystalline ingots. The author then discusses the relationship between research reactors and non proliferation, and finally evokes perspectives (decrease of the number of research reactors in the world, the Jules Horowitz project)

    It brings together the techniques data which are involved in the discussion about the utility for a research institute to acquire an atomic reactor for research purposes. This type of decision are often taken by non-specialist people who can need a brief presentation of a research reactor and its possibilities in term of research before asking advises to experts. In a first part, it draws up a list of the different research programs which can be studied by getting a research reactor. First of all is the reactor behaviour and kinetics studies (reproducibility factor, exploration of neutron density, effect of reactor structure, effect of material irradiation...). Physical studies includes study of the behaviour of the control system, studies of neutron resonance phenomena and study of the fission process for example. Chemical studies involves the study of manipulation and control of hot material, characterisation of nuclear species produced in the reactor and chemical effects of irradiation on chemical properties and reactions. Biology and medicine research involves studies of irradiation on man and animals, genetics research, food or medical tools sterilization and neutron beams effect on tumour for example. A large number of other subjects can be studied in a reactor research as reactor construction material research, fabrication of radioactive sources for radiographic techniques or applied research as in agriculture or electronic. The second part discussed the technological considerations when choosing the reactor type. The technological factors, which are considered for its choice, are the power of the reactor, the nature of the fuel which is used, the type of moderator (water, heavy water, graphite or BeO) and the reflector, the type of coolants, the protection shield and the control systems. In the third part, it described the characteristics (place of installation, type of combustible and comments) and performance (power, neutron flux ) of already existing

    Ross, D.F. Jr.

    1988-01-01

    The USNRC Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research has developed a program for nuclear plant aging research (NPAR) to achieve an understanding of nuclear plant aging, its potential effects on safety, and methods for its detection and mitigation, sufficient for addressing safety and regulatory issues and supporting regulatory decisions on issues. Specifically, the NRC has aggressive research and regulatory programs associated with aging effects on piping, steam generators, containments, structures, and electrical and mechanical systems and components. In addition to safety assessment for the original license period for nuclear power plants, this aging information will be extremely useful in providing technical bases for efficient and effective regulation associated with possible license extension. This paper discusses the major activities of USNRC sponsored aging research program and recommends an approach to manage and handle aging at nuclear power plants

    1992-12-01

    The Latvian Council of Science asked the Danish Research Councils and the Danish Academy for Technical Sciences for help in evaluating Latvian scientific research. The background for this request was the Latvian desire to stimulate an approach towards full integration in the European society. Based on reports, site visits and interviews, 19 panels of experts covering all subject areas prepared evaluation reports. These detailed evaluations of actual research projects are included in the publication in addition to general recommendations. The panels recommend that Latvian authorities take into consideration when planning scientific research, especially with regard to those branches which contribute to the industrial development and social and economic sciences, that a balance should be made between long range basic, and short range applied, science activities. Despite the very serious economic conditions in Latvia, it was also advised that immediate measures should be taken to ensure a stable funding of the research system as the future development of Latvian society is dependent on the stability and high quality of its research activities. Other recommendations are given in detail. (AB)

  15. Outraged, yet moderate and impartial. The rise of Amnesty International in the Netherlands in the 1960s and 1970s

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bastiaan Bouwman

    2017-12-01

    Full Text Available This article contributes to the recent historiography on human rights by analysing the rise of Amnesty International in the Netherlands. It uses the Dutch section’s archives extensively for the first time and explores how, despite the first section’s failure to gain traction, upon its second founding it quickly grew into one of the largest national sections of Amnesty. Apart from highlighting differences in approach between the first and the second group of organisers, this article explains the remarkable success of the latter. It focuses on the interaction between Amnesty’s ‘model’ and the Dutch cultural and political context, discussing how the national section’s leadership mediated this. The organisation capitalised on the idealism of the 1970s while steering clear of radicalisation and political polarisation in both the national and international spheres. In addition, the Dutch section’s approach and message spoke directly to memories of World War ii, while organisational innovation allowed it to tap into growing reserves of volunteers and members, contributing to a more general shift in Amnesty’s work.Dit artikel draagt door middel van een analyse van de opkomst van Amnesty International in Nederland bij aan de recente historiografie over mensenrechten. Het maakt voor het eerst uitgebreid gebruik van de archieven van de Nederlandse afdeling en gaat na hoe de Nederlandse afdeling in eerste instantie geen voet aan de grond kreeg, maar bij de tweede poging alsnog uitgroeide tot een van degrootste nationale afdelingen van Amnesty. Naast verschillen in de aanpak tussen de twee pogingen verklaart dit artikel dit plotselinge succes uit de interactie tussen Amnesty’s ‘model’ en de Nederlandse culturele en politieke context, zoals vormgegeven door de leiding van de nationale afdeling. Amnesty’s activisme sloot aan op het idealisme van de jaren zeventig, maar de organisatie vermeed radicalisering en politieke polarisering op

    This article describes the basic tenets of quantitative research. The concepts of dependent and independent variables are addressed and the concept of measurement and its associated issues, such as error, reliability and validity, are explored. Experiments and surveys – the principal research designs in quantitative research – are described and key features explained. The importance of the double-blind randomised controlled trial is emphasised, alongside the importance of longitudinal surveys, as opposed to cross-sectional surveys. Essential features of data storage are covered, with an emphasis on safe, anonymous storage. Finally, the article explores the analysis of quantitative data, considering what may be analysed and the main uses of statistics in analysis.

    This paper examines what is important about talk between learners during school science and, having identified this, suggests how we can ensure that what we consider important happens. By looking at the interaction between teachers and learners talking about science, it is possible to indicate ways in which learners can be helped to continue this learning conversation with one another when teacher support is withdrawn. Strategies for teaching and learning are examined. The paper reports on the findings of a research project designed to teach children how to negotiate their ideas about science concepts through rational dialogue. Children's development of scientific concepts in classrooms is undertaken through structured activity and mediated through oral language. Children must move forward simultaneously in their use of specialized vocabulary and in their understanding of current scientific explanations, models and ideas. New language and new ways of using language are learned by doing, which means for children, primarily speaking and listening. Children's understanding of science can benefit from teaching them to understand that spoken language is a powerful tool for thinking together.

    In Section I of this annual report, a brief summary of work is presented by the Research Medicine Group. The major emphasis has been the study of the blood system in man with a special emphasis on the examination of platelet abnormalities in human disease. New programs of major importance include the study of aging or dementia of the Alzheimer's type. A differential diagnosis technique has been perfected using positron emission tomography. Studies on the biochemical basis of schizophrenia have proceeded using radioisotope studies which image physiological and biochemical processes. In the investigation of atherosclerosis, techniques have been developed to measure blood perfusion of the heart muscle by labelling platelets and lipoproteins. Progress is reported in a new program which uses NMR for both imaging and spectroscopic studies in humans. The group has determined through an epidemiological study that bubble chamber and cyclotron workers who have been exposed to high electromagnetic fields for two decades have no significant increases in the prevalence of 21 diseases as compared with controls

    A major effort of this program is in the field of quantitative radionuclide imaging. Four approaches to noninvasive evaluation of human biochemical and physiological states are used: positron tomography for three-dimensional quantitative imaging; computerized whole-body scanning of isotope distribution; expired air analysis of 14 CO 2 from the metabolism of injected pharmaceuticals; and whole-body counting. This program is closely associated with the development of instrumentation and radiopharmaceuticals for radionuclide studies, and the investigative studies using them. Its major emphasis is to apply the efforts of new instrumentation and radiopharmaceuticals to medical problems such as brain and heart blood flow and metabolism resulting from various disease and environmental conditions. Kinetic analyses are made based on the conservation-of-mass equation and precise information of the sequential tissue concentrations by three-dimensional imaging. The technology being developed embodies the concept of in vivo biochemistry of amino acids, fatty acids, and glucose. This group continues its research effort in the hematology area. Currently studies of the megakaryocytic cell system are being carried out in an effort to understand platelet turnover and how the blood platelet count is regulated. This is important not only in a broad spectrum of blood disorders, but also in the evaluation of toxic environmental pollutants

    Much remains to be learned from continued monitoring of the medical experience of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki A-bomb survivors. Many effects are so small, or have such long latent periods, that there is not even now a complete catalogue of effects visible in this large population. There is as yet no evidence of a mutagenic effect, but biochemical and cytogenetic approaches now offer powerful tools for a final effort to derive information that may set limits on the size of the doubling dose for mutations in man. The list of specific neoplasms induced by the whole-body exposure to the A-bomb radiation remains incomplete, and the quantitative dose-response aspects of established carcinogenic effects remains to be worked out in relation to time, host factors, linear energy transfer (LET) characteristics of radiation, and risk factors other than radiation. The dose-response estimates must be made, where possible, in terms of tissue dose. If there is to be any definitive test of the hypothesis of radiation accelerated aging in man, it will doubtless come from observations on the A-bomb survivors. The experience of the A-bomb survivors can make no direct contribution to knowledge of dose rate, and is much too small to provide direct information in the region of low dose. Nevertheless, as better knowledge of mechanisms of radiation damage and repair accumulates from laboratory experimental programs, this unique human experience will be of increasing value to radiation biology. Continued monitoring of the health and medical experience of the A-bomb survivors will depend on the voluntary cooperation of the subjects and their families, and on the interest of the physicians in the community. Present indications are that the research would gain from a closer association with medical care and health maintenance programs. (auth.)

    Full Text Available The development of Rein van Bemmelens (1904-1983 undation theory: Forty years of Dutch geology The Dutch geologist Rein van Bemmelen was the greatest opponent of plate tectonics in the Netherlands. He lived and worked during an important period in the history of earth sciences. He had studied geology when Wegeners theory was introduced and enthusiastically received in the Netherlands and he worked as a geologists during the period in which, after Wegeners theory was rejected in the Netherlands, several Dutch geologists came with their own theories to explain the origin of continents and oceans and in which plate tectonics was introduced in the Netherlands. He had proposed his own theory, the undation theory, at the beginning of the 1930s and kept on developing it during the following years. He continued to do so until his death in 1983. The history of the undation theory thus sheds light on the history of geology in the Netherlands. I will trace the history of geology in the Netherlands using Rein van Bemmelen and his undation theory as a lense.

As a professor at the Utrecht veterinary school he spent a substantial part of his time on a practical endeavour: the improvement of the wool quality of the Dutch sheep breeds. He did not confine his activities to the scientific aspects only, but aimed to obtain the active involvement of all relevant stakeholders in his project: the government, the sheep farmers and the wool industry.In the literature, Numan’s project is seen as a failure: the stakeholders were skeptical about his project from the beginning, as wool improvement was seen as a misguided aim. The Dutch wool industry was perfectly satisfied with the quality of the Dutch wool, and the trend among sheep breeders was to improve their sheeps’ meat meat quality rather than their wool. Eventually, the government withdrew its indispensable support.Nevertheless, Numan clung doggedly to the aim he had set himself, and the question we want to answer is this paper is why. We argue that the answer is to be found in Numan’s view of the role of science in society. His motives were not merely economic, but, first and foremost, of a moral nature. Wool quality, for him, was a measure of the level of civilization a country had reached. Social and cultural progress went hand in hand with the availability of higher quality clothing, the raw materials for which the Dutch sheep were as yet unable to provide. By providing these materials Numan was convinced to contribute directly to the well-being and cultural enhancement of the Dutch population, an objective that was characteristic of the self-fashioned private and public persona of the early nineteenth-century Dutch scientist.

    Full Text Available The stress patterns of Afrikaans and Dutch simplex words correspond to a large extent. However, a small percentage of words differ with regard to the placing of the main stress. The theoretical descriptions of this phenomenon in Afrikaans and Dutch are compared and the conclusion is reached that the Afrikaans description has a higher degree of descriptive and explanatory adequacy than its Dutch counterpart. This can be ascribed to a number of factors, some of which are dealt with in the article. It is furthermore demonstrated that the majority of shifts in stress patterns from Dutch to Afrikaans take place according to the main stress rule. This article indicates how these shifts provide strong support for the main stress rule for simplex words which forms the basis of the argument.

    Full Text Available D. Fokkema, F. Grijzenhout, Rekenschap 1650-2000RekenschapKarel DavidsWhat value does the 'benchmarking' concept (IJkpunten bring to Dutch history? Can the selection of the first 'benchmark' and the subsequent benchmark-years convincingly be defended and if so, on what grounds? What do the results of these inquiries on benchmark-years tell us about the specific features of Dutch culture? These three key questions form the basis of the review of the IJkpunten-project as a whole. The author argues that the implementation of the project has in part been more satisfactory than its defective theoretical base would have led us to expect, but that the series as a whole also shows a number of glaring shortcomings, such as an inadequate justification of the choice of the benchmark-years and insufficient communication between the various authors concerning the use of crucial terms and concepts. Although 'specific' features of Dutch culture are hinted at, a systematic, comparative analysis of these matters has not been pursued. Finally, it is suggested that the volumes of IJkpunten-project, considering their manifest focus on the importance of harmony, consensus, consultation and candid debate in Dutch history and their relative disregard for the role of coercion, violence, conflicts and tensions between different groups in Dutch society, can be taken as a quintessential product of the prevailing beliefs and opinions in the Netherlands in the 1990s.

    Full Text Available It was Different Then!: History on Dutch TelevisionIn ‘Dat is wel eens anders geweest!’ [It was different then!] Paul Knevel and Jouke Turpijn attempt to provide tools for historians to analyse history on the television in a broad historiographical perspective. They cover the first history productions in the Netherlands and the remarkable success of major series in the twentyfirst century. The difficult relation between academic and public history on the television in the Netherlands is placed in an international context. De Gouden Eeuw [The Golden Age] serves as a case study to investigate history series. While De Gouden Eeuw was a big success, it also demonstrates certain limits to Dutch history productions. In ‘Dat is wel eens anders geweest!’ reiken Paul Knevel en Jouke Turpijnhandvatten aan om geschiedenis op televisie in een breed histori(ografisch perspectief te duiden. Vertrekkend vanaf de eerste producties bespreken zij het wonderbaarlijke succes van geschiedenisseries in de eenentwintigste eeuw. Zij staan stil bij de moeizame relatie in Nederland tussen academische geschiedenis en geschiedenis op televisie en vergelijken dit met andere landen. Daarna analyseren zij de serie De Gouden Eeuw, die enerzijds het beste in het genre naar boven heeft gehaald in termen van kijkcijfers, de multimediale aanpak en het evoceren van een ver voorbij verleden. Anderzijds roepen deze en eerdere series de vraag op of er niet iets te winnen valt met andere presentatievormen, waarbij een alwetende presentator misschien wel meer kennis- en visie-overdracht oplevert dan de in Nederland gebruikelijkere presentator die alles wil weten.

    1450 flower bulb businesses were approached for the Dutch Energy Monitor 2008. The response rate was 56%. A comparison with the energy use of 2007 or 2006 proved to be of little use due to the differences between the various databases. The calculated energy use data per crop in 2008 are suitable as reference values for the monitoring up to 2011. The Energy Efficiency Index of 2008 was set at 100. 25 energy saving measures have been examined in the monitoring to see to what extent they are used. Strikingly, only 11% of the businesses used the ethylene analyzer. Insulation of the cold store, frequency-controlled ventilators and rounded outlets in the system wall were used relatively often (by respectively 70%, 50% and 38% of the businesses). In forcing, energy shields, façade insulation and pre-growing/multi-layer cultivation score relatively high (respectively 55%, 53% and 24%). Deployment of the climate computer in growing and forcing also scores relatively high at 65%. The most frequently used measure is deployment of a high efficiency condensing boiler (77%). Sustainable energy is used in nearly 20% of the businesses, deployment of hot greenhouse air for drying being the most frequently used measure (76 businesses). Green electricity is the second sustainable energy source (purchased by nearly 5% of businesses). The share of sustainable energy is thus 2.3%. The CO2 emission resulting from direct use of fossil fuels at 495 of the monitored businesses was calculated to amount to 30,541 tons in cultivation (drying and storage) and 25.002 in forcing (greenhouse heating). The total amount is thus 55.544 tons. [Dutch] Voor de Energiemonitor 2008 zijn 1450 bloembollenbedrijven aangeschreven. De response was 56%. Een vergelijking met het energieverbruik in 2007 of in 2006 is door de afwijkende samenstellingen van de verschillende databases weinig zinvol gebleken. De berekende energieverbruikscijfers per gewas van 2008 zijn wel goed bruikbaar als referentiewaarden voor de verdere monitoring t/m 2011. De Energie Efficientie Index van 2008 wordt dan op 100 gesteld. Voor 25 energiebesparende maatregelen is in de monitoring nagegaan in hoeverre deze werden toegepast, Opvallend hierbij is dat slechts op 11% van de bedrijven de ethyleen analyser wordt toegepast. Isolatie van de bewaarcel, frequentie-geregelde ventilatoren en de afgeronde uitblaasopening in de systeemwand worden relatief veel toegepast (door respectievelijk 70%, 50% en 38% van de bedrijven). In de broeierij scoren energieschermen, gevel-isolatie en voortrekken/meerlagenteelt relatief hoog (respectievelijk 55%, 53% en 24 %). Ook het toepassen van de klimaatcomputer in teelt en broei scoort met ruim 65% hoog. Meest toegepaste maatregel is het gebruik van HR:ketels (77%). Duurzame energie wordt op bijna 20% van de bedrijven toegepast, waarbij het gebruik van warme kaslucht voor drogen het meest toegepast wordt (door 76 bedrijven). Groene stroom is de tweede duurzame energiebron (aangekocht door bijna 5% van de bedrijven). Het aandeel duurzame energie komt hiermee op 2,3%. De CO2-uitstoot door het directe verbruik van fossiele brandstoffen van de 495 gemonitorde bedrijven is berekend op 30.541 ton bij de teelt (drogen en bewaren) en 25.003 bij de broei (kasverwarming). In totaal 55.544 ton.

    To meet environmental targets, Long term agreements (LTA-e) were made between the flower bulb industry and the government from 1995 onwards. In the first LTA-e 1995-2006 about 600 businesses and the government agreed on improving energy efficiency. In that period the energy consciousness grew strongly and the monitoring results show that in 2006 the participating businesses had realized an energy saving of 23% compared to 1995. On top of the clear financial benefits for these companies, the cultivation itself has become more environment-friendly. The monitoring of energy use has clearly improved in 2008 compared to 2007. The monitoring examined to what extent 25 energy saving measures have been deployed. [Dutch] Om aan milieudoelstellingen te voldoen zijn vanaf 1995 over het energieverbruik tussen de bloembollensector en de overheid Meerjarenafspraken (MJA-e) gemaakt. In de eerste MJA-e 1995-2006 kwamen ongeveer 600 bedrijven en de overheid overeen de energie-efficientie te verbeteren. In die periode is het energiebewustzijn sterk toegenomen en monitoringsresultaten laten zien dat deelnemende bedrijven in 2006 een energiebesparing hebben gerealiseerd van 23% t.o.v. 1995. Naast het directe financiele voordeel dat dit de bedrijven oplevert, is de teelt milieuvriendelijker geworden. De monitoring van het energieverbruik in 2008 is duidelijk verbeterd t.o.v. 2007. Voor een 25-tal energiebesparende maatregelen is in de monitoring nagegaan in hoeverre deze werden toegepast.

In the category of energy efficient climate control systems, the moisture deficit regime was most frequently used (30%). Cooling exclusively with groundwater or ground tubes is used very little (only 5% of the businesses), but 16% of the businesses combines it with mechanical cooling. The share of businesses that implemented one or more sustainable energy measures was 30% in 2009. As a result, the realized share of sustainable energy (including green electricity) amounted to 3.7% in 2009. The avoided CO2 emission in 2009 amounted to 3.255 tons. The CO2 emission per kilogram of mushrooms was 175g CO2/kg in 2009, which is s decrease of 16% compared to 2005 and 1% lower than in 2008 [Dutch] Voor de monitoring van het energieverbruik door de paddenstoelensector in 2009 zijn 118 bedrijven aangeschreven.

    1375 flower bulb businesses were approached for the Dutch Energy Monitor 2009. The response rate was 57%. Compared to 2008, the energy use per hectare decreased with 1.5% in 2009. The energy use per 1000 forced bulbs decreased with 9.1%. Energy saving measures were implemented at a slightly larger scale than in 2008. What is striking here is that 78% of the businesses assessed the ethylene-controlled ventilation as non-applicable. The purchase of green electricity is the most frequently used deployment of sustainable energy for electricity (9.8% of all businesses). However, the deployment of wind energy (6 businesses) yields 26% more energy. Deployment of hot greenhouse air for drying purposes is the most frequently used deployment of sustainable thermal energy (17.3% of businesses). The share of sustainable energy amounts to 2.4%. The CO2 emission from direct use of fossil fuels has decreased with 8.1% compared to 2008. [Dutch] Voor de Energiemonitor 2009 zijn 1375 bloembollenbedrijven aangeschreven. De response was 57%.

    Full Text Available ‘Konstige tanden’ – False teeth made of bone and ivory from Dutch collectionsDental healthcare in the past was not as advanced as nowadays. Most people who suffered from caries (or worse had no other option than to have the ‘bad’ tooth extracted. A set of false teeth was only an option the rich could afford. Finding a suitable material for these prostheses was a struggle for the manufacturers. For a long period ivory, and sometimes bone, was the only option.The aim of this study was to examine more than one hundred false teeth made of bone and ivory from archaeological and museum collections, with the purpose to identify the used materials and to investigate the development of these dentures. Archaeological examples were the oldest false teeth recovered, the oldest dating to the 17th century.A persistent misinterpretation is the use of walrus ivory for the manufacture of false teeth in the time under investigation. Both walrus and hippopotamus ivory have been misidentified for a long time mainly because both species have been named ‘seahorse’. Of all the examined dentures 71% was made of hippopotamus ivory, 18% of walrus ivory, 8% of elephant ivory and only 3% of bone. Before the discovery of vulcanised rubber in the mid-19th century hippopotamus ivory was the best material to manufacture false teeth, because of the hard enamel layer which retained its white colour much longer than other materials. Archaeological finds show that hippopotamus ivory was imported for only one purpose: the manufacture of false teeth.These false teeth were probably made more often by ivory workers rather than by ‘tooth masters’. Although ivory false teeth were a good solution for esthetical reasons and to regain speech and chewing abilities, the lack of hygiene must have caused a lot of pain and trouble to their rich wearers.

    Full Text Available Dutch policy for the creative economy: aiming for too many birds with one stone? Creative economy is a subject that enjoys a lot of attention from Dutch governments, from local to state. It is assumed that creative economy results in a positive image, safety and money. In the Netherlands, the writings of Richard Florida have become prominent in policy making. Florida characterises the creative class as value driven. Values are individuality, tolerance, and meritocracy. Cities that score high on Technology, Talent and Tolerance attract the creative class. The Dutch policy for this economy often coincides with urban renewal. Moreover, the Dutch government has a desire to define what successful creativity is. This has some side-effects that might harm the tolerant atmosphere that is essential to the creative class, as it excludes groups of people from the public domain. In this contribution, I present a project that wants to resist the homogenization and zero tolerance policies in the public domain. In the project Maximum Tolerance Zone all parties concerned negotiate the quality of ‘their’ public sphere and the rules needed to advance this quality. The MTZ-project does not assume a social intervention in which the government imposes norms one has to learn to adapt to, but a social-administrative intervention in which a joint learning process takes place. This is not an easy, but still a necessary assignment for all parties concerned, the government included.

Thanks to increasing sales, translations and literary awards the genre achieved a strong position in Dutch literature. This article analyzes the image of Central and Eastern European countries in Dutch literary nonfiction of the last ten years (2004-14. It searches for characteristics of an orientalist and balkanist discourse and the presence of the imagological centre-periphery model in the works of Geert Mak, Jelle Brandt Corstius, Olaf Koens, Joop Verstraten and Jan Brokken. Contemporary Dutch literary nonfiction contains a euro-orientalist discourse. Characteristics such as underdevelopment, hedonism, obscurity and authenticity are projected on Central and Eastern Europe, which is put in the periphery of Western Europe.

    Full Text Available ‘Holland’s Militant Suffragettes’? A Theme from the History of Dutch FeminismThe historiography of feminism is bristling with international comparative surveys. It is precisely because of this that the use of national frameworks has been acknowledged, albeit unintentionally and indirectly. Nevertheless, this paper adopts the opposite stance, and argues that both national and internal affairs, as well as international and foreign affairs, can be viewed as categories which serve certain political agendas, thereby making it possible to distinguish between friends and foes in the political struggle. Historians should not reproduce such a differentiation but analyze it instead. To give an example of such an analysis, this paper outlines how the customary distinction between a moderate Dutch and a radical English electoral feminism gained an important impetus at a key moment: when in 1907 the discordant entanglement of political and personal contacts between feminists on both sides of the Channel eventually led to a schism in the Dutch Society for Women’s Right to Vote.

    Full Text Available  Twentieth-century book and literary historians have tended to seriously underestimate women‟s participation in the nineteenth-century literary field. Thanks to different digital and online tools it becomes now possible to get a better understanding of their presence as authors. This is demonstrated in the present article, where the case „George Sand as received in nineteenth-century Netherlands‟ is used as an example. In particular it is shown that there has been, up to recently, too much reliance on critical articles published in the nineteenth-century literary press. Dutch critics publishing negative comments on George Sand‟s works will most often have had the intention to combat her actual success with Dutch readers and her possible influence on them. And those literary reviews refraining from publishing articles on her work show, by the frequency of their mentioning Sand‟s name, that she was in fact very present in the cultural repertoire of the nineteenth-century Netherlands.

    Full Text Available Though one sees the people… (one does not therefore know them: Perspectives on farmers and boorish festivity in a number of Dutch and Afrikaans poems A selection of a few Dutch and Afrikaans poems from, inter alia, the seventeenth, nineteenth and early twentieth century, share so many characteristics in their combination of the subjects “farmer” (“boer” and “feast”, that in this article the question is raised whether these stereotypes form part of a relatively fixed traditional topic or “storehouse” of conventions. Each poem utilizes colloquial language, diminutives and nicknames in the depiction of a dance party in a rural setting – an event characterized by immoderate behaviour, particularly regarding love-making and the use of liquor. More recent Afrikaans poems (written within a context where the initially negative term “Boer” has been transfigured positively due to the expansion of Afrikaner-Nationalist power satirize other aspects, like status and wealth instead of backwardness, but it seems as if excess and transgression are still associated with “boer” in combination with festivity. The concept of farmer often functions as the Other in these poems, in binary opposition to the narrator.

It is indicated that the process/history of maintaining the identity of the Christian school in the Netherlands was one of continuous conflict between the Christian and the neutral (secular school. In 1920 the first phase of the conflict was resolved fairly satisfactorily with the "De Visserwet" (act, which granted parents the right to organise own schools. Since then all schools have been funded on an equal base by the state. As South Africa is currently trying to find solutions to certain educational problems, solutions resulting from the Dutch situation could possibly be applied partially to the South African situation. The main advantage would be that a variety of groups with different life views would be able to exist in harmony and to organise and support own schools receiving equal state support.

An evaluation of recent historical studies on Dutch townsUrban history in the Netherlands started roundabout 1970. It was initially promoted by mainly economic and social historians who used concepts derived from geography which centred on town and country relations, urban networks, and migration. The spatial factor was considered to be a core feature, also inside the towns and cities. An alternative view, however, argued that a completely introspective urban history, focussing on one city, would result in more integration. This hypothesis has been proved in a number of recent, more or less integral urban histories, commissioned by several independent municipal authorities in individual cities. They show that a combination of internal and external elements offers the best results with regard to integration.

  10. Researching collaboratively: implications for qualitative research and researchers.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Cheek, Julianne

    2008-11-01

    Often discussions about collaborative research, and collaboration generally, begin at the point of how to collaborate, who to collaborate with, and what to collaborate about. Rarely do they include equally important questions of why we are having discussions about collaboration, where such an impetus and emphasis is coming from, and how it connects to the contemporary political research context. In a recent editorial in Qualitative Health Research, Janice Morse highlighted the need for reflection about collaboration. This article responds to that call, providing reflections on collaboration, the imperative to collaborate, and what this all might mean for both qualitative research and qualitative researchers. I hope to stimulate new points of departure for thinking and action shaping collaborative research endeavors without-and just as crucially, within-qualitative research.

  11. Design Research between Design and Research

    Steinø, Nicolai; Markussen, Thomas

    The discourse on architecture and design research in Denmark in the past thirty years has been stuck in a unproductive dichotomy between research through design on the one hand and a phantom image of academic and theoretical, word-based research on the other. Advocates of the research through...... design strand have argued, that architecture and design research must follow an architecture and design methodology – designing – and be communicated by means of architecture and design media – images and artefacts. Essentially, this view sees no difference between architecture and design research...... and practice, as expressed in the notion of research as ‘artistic innovation work’. On the other hand, the pressure to expand research in architecture and design has seen a movement towards adopting traditional research paradigms from the technical and social sciences and humanities. For many architects...

  19. From Action Research to Practice Research

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Goran Goldkuhl

    2012-04-01

    Full Text Available Action research (AR has gained more acceptance as an approach to qualitative research in information systems (IS. The complexities of organisational and technical change makes this approach a suitable one in IS research. There are, however, still some controversies and confusions about the relation between “action” and “research”. The many types of AR and similar approaches (not labelled as AR that have emerged demands further conceptual clarification of AR. A conceptual inquiry of AR, presented in the paper, has led to the identification of several unresolved issues concerning intervention research like AR. An alternative research approach is presented: practice research. This research approach is well founded in pragmatism and it builds on the two premises: 1 to contribute to general practice through abstract and useful knowledge and 2 to study the empirical field as interconnected practices. Several important concepts of practice research are described as: local practice contribution vs. general practice contribution; theorizing vs. situational inquiry. Practice research is seen as a broader notion encompassing AR and other research approaches as e.g. design research and evaluation research. Two case examples of practice research are briefly presented and compared: one AR-based study in the social welfare sector and one evaluation study of a taxation e-service.

    Through data collection methods using a holistic approach that focuses on variables in a natural setting, qualitative research methods seek to understand participants' perceptions and interpretations. Common qualitative research methods include ethnography, phenomenology, grounded theory, and historic research. Another type of methodology that has a similar qualitative approach is case study research, which seeks to understand a phenomenon or case from multiple perspectives within a given real-world context.

  17. Mixed methods research in music therapy research.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bradt, Joke; Burns, Debra S; Creswell, John W

    2013-01-01

    Music therapists have an ethical and professional responsibility to provide the highest quality care possible to their patients. Much of the time, high quality care is guided by evidence-based practice standards that integrate the most current, available research in making decisions. Accordingly, music therapists need research that integrates multiple ways of knowing and forms of evidence. Mixed methods research holds great promise for facilitating such integration. At this time, there have not been any methodological articles published on mixed methods research in music therapy. The purpose of this article is to introduce mixed methods research as an approach to address research questions relevant to music therapy practice. This article describes the core characteristics of mixed methods research, considers paradigmatic issues related to this research approach, articulates major challenges in conducting mixed methods research, illustrates four basic designs, and provides criteria for evaluating the quality of mixed methods articles using examples of mixed methods research from the music therapy literature. Mixed methods research offers unique opportunities for strengthening the evidence base in music therapy. Recommendations are provided to ensure rigorous implementation of this research approach.

    Råheim, Målfrid; Magnussen, Liv Heide; Sekse, Ragnhild Johanne Tveit; Lunde, Åshild; Jacobsen, Torild; Blystad, Astrid

    2016-01-01

    The researcher role is highly debated in qualitative research. This article concerns the researcher-researched relationship. A group of health science researchers anchored in various qualitative research traditions gathered in reflective group discussions over a period of two years. Efforts to establish an anti-authoritarian relationship between researcher and researched, negotiation of who actually "rules" the research agenda, and experiences of shifts in "inferior" and "superior" knowledge positions emerged as central and intertwined themes throughout the discussions. The dual role as both insider and outsider, characteristic of qualitative approaches, seemed to lead to power relations and researcher vulnerability which manifested in tangible ways. Shifting positions and vulnerability surfaced in various ways in the projects. They nonetheless indicated a number of similar experiences which can shed light on the researcher-researched relationship. These issues could benefit from further discussion in the qualitative health research literature.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Dawn E. Pollon

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Research assistantships have long been viewed as an extension of the formal education process, a form of apprenticeship, and a pathway into the professional practice of research in institutional settings. However, there are other contexts in which researchers practice research. This self-study documents the formative role research assistantships played in the authors’ development as professional research consultants. Four professional research consultants who held research assistant positions during their master’s and doctoral studies describe the contributions of their research assistantship experiences to the advancement of their knowledge, skills, and passion for research and subsequently to their career decisions. Professional research consulting is identified as a natural extension of research assistant roles and a potential career path. The article enhances current understandings about the ways research assistantships contribute to the development of researchers, and specifically to the development of professional research consultants. The analysis will be of interest to students contemplating entering into research assistantships, current research assistants, current research assistant supervisors, academic staff looking to improve their research productivity, and department chairs.
