  5. Railway regulation in 19th Century Britain: the economic rationale and legacy of Gladstone and Chadwick

    OpenAIRE

    Bailey, Mark F

    2003-01-01

    This paper examines the economic rationale of the ideas of Gladstone & Chadwick on railway regulation and the legacy of their ideas. In 1844 Gladstone proposed and implemented what we would now call price and quantity regulation whereas in 1859 Chadwick proposed competition "for the field", i.e. the establishment of a temporary monopoly or franchise, for a given period. The thinking of Gladstone had been influenced by the classical school of economic thought, most notably J R McCulloch, whils...

  7. Gladstone-Dale constant for CF4. [experimental design

    Science.gov (United States)

    Burner, A. W., Jr.; Goad, W. K.

    1980-01-01

    The Gladstone-Dale constant, which relates the refractive index to density, was measured for CF4 by counting fringes of a two-beam interferometer, one beam of which passes through a cell containing the test gas. The experimental approach and sources of systematic and imprecision errors are discussed. The constant for CF4 was measured at several wavelengths in the visible region of the spectrum. A value of 0.122 cu cm/g with an uncertainty of plus or minus 0.001 cu cm/g was determined for use in the visible region. A procedure for noting the departure of the gas density from the ideal-gas law is discussed.

  13. HANFORD SAFETY ANALYSIS & RISK ASSESSMENT HANDBOOK (SARAH)

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    EVANS, C B

    2004-12-21

    The purpose of the Hanford Safety Analysis and Risk Assessment Handbook (SARAH) is to support the development of safety basis documentation for Hazard Category 2 and 3 (HC-2 and 3) U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear facilities to meet the requirements of 10 CFR 830, ''Nuclear Safety Management''. Subpart B, ''Safety Basis Requirements.'' Consistent with DOE-STD-3009-94, Change Notice 2, ''Preparation Guide for U.S. Department of Energy Nonreactor Nuclear Facility Documented Safety Analyses'' (STD-3009), and DOE-STD-3011-2002, ''Guidance for Preparation of Basis for Interim Operation (BIO) Documents'' (STD-3011), the Hanford SARAH describes methodology for performing a safety analysis leading to development of a Documented Safety Analysis (DSA) and derivation of Technical Safety Requirements (TSR), and provides the information necessary to ensure a consistently rigorous approach that meets DOE expectations. The DSA and TSR documents, together with the DOE-issued Safety Evaluation Report (SER), are the basic components of facility safety basis documentation. For HC-2 or 3 nuclear facilities in long-term surveillance and maintenance (S&M), for decommissioning activities, where source term has been eliminated to the point that only low-level, residual fixed contamination is present, or for environmental remediation activities outside of a facility structure, DOE-STD-1120-98, ''Integration of Environment, Safety, and Health into Facility Disposition Activities'' (STD-1120), may serve as the basis for the DSA. HC-2 and 3 environmental remediation sites also are subject to the hazard analysis methodologies of this standard.

  19. Linking SARAH and MadGraph using the UFO format

    CERN Document Server

    Staub, Florian

    2012-01-01

    SARAH is a Mathematica package optimized for the fast, efficient and precise study of supersymmetric models beyond the MSSM: a new model can be defined in a short form and all vertices are derived. This allows SARAH to create model files for FeynArts/FormCalc, CalcHep/CompHep and WHIZARD/OMEGA. The newest version of SARAH now provides the possibility to create model files in the UFO format which is supported by MadGraph 5, MadAnalysis 5, GoSam, and soon by Herwig++. Furthermore, SARAH also calculates the mass matrices, RGEs and 1-loop corrections to the mass spectrum. This information is used to write source code for SPheno in order to create a precision spectrum generator for the given model. This spectrum-generator-generator functionality as well as the output of WHIZARD and CalcHep model files have seen further improvement in this version.

    In this study we examined the impact of weather variability and tides on the transmission of Barmah Forest virus (BFV) disease and developed a weather-based forecasting model for BFV disease in the Gladstone region, Australia. We used seasonal autoregressive integrated moving-average (SARIMA) models to determine the contribution of weather variables to BFV transmission after the time-series data of response and explanatory variables were made stationary through seasonal differencing. We obtained data on the monthly counts of BFV cases, weather variables (e.g., mean minimum and maximum temperature, total rainfall, and mean relative humidity), high and low tides, and the population size in the Gladstone region between January 1992 and December 2001 from the Queensland Department of Health, Australian Bureau of Meteorology, Queensland Department of Transport, and Australian Bureau of Statistics, respectively. The SARIMA model shows that the 5-month moving average of minimum temperature (b=0.15, p-value<0.001) was statistically significantly and positively associated with BFV disease, whereas high tide in the current month (b=-1.03, p-value=0.04) was statistically significantly and inversely associated with it. However, no significant association was found for other variables. These results may be applied to forecast the occurrence of BFV disease and to use public health resources in BFV control and prevention.

  1. Stay the Night: Meera Margaret Singh at the Gladstone Hotel Stay the Night : Meera Margaret Singh à l’hôtel Gladstone

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kerry Manders

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available This essay examines Meera Margaret Singh’s exhibition Nightingale in the time and place of the liminal space we call “hotel.” In intertexual dialogue with Wayne Koestenbaum’s Hotel Theory, the author not only reviews Singh’s intimate photographs of her mother, she reads the images with and against the architecture in which they are exhibited. The Gladstone as exhibition space redoubles Singh’s emphasis on the tense connectivity of apparent binaries: youth and age, public and private, artist and model, object and spectator, living and dying. The quotidian activities of hotel living—guests’ arrivals, departures, and returns—become inextricable pieces of Singh’s site-specific installation. The author theorizes what Freud calls the “foretaste of mourning” in this work, grappling with what will be but is not yet the death of the mother. Singh’s Nightingale proposes that we do not “work through” mourning: mourning is a perpetual way of being in the present.Cet article examine l’exposition photographique de Meera Margaret Singh dans l’espace liminal qu’est l’hôtel. En dialogue intertextuel avec l’œuvre de Wayne Koestenbaum, Hotel Theory, l’auteur examine les portraits intimes de la mère de la photographe, tout en les lisant en fonction de l’architecture de leur emplacement. L’hôtel Gladstone en tant que lieu d’exposition redouble donc l’accent que met la photographe sur les liens tendus des systèmes binaires apparents: la jeunesse et l’âge ; le public et le privé ; l’artiste et le modèle ; l’objet et le spectateur; vivre et mourir. Les activités quotidiennes de la vie en hôtel – l’arrivée, le départ, et le retour d’invités – deviennent des éléments inextricables de l’œuvre in situ. L’auteur théorise le concept de Freud sur l’avant-goût du deuil, explorant ce qui deviendra mais ne l’est pas encore : la mort de la mère. Cette exposition propose que nous ne

    Full Text Available Claudia Thorun untersucht die Inszenierungen von Weiblichkeit am Beispiel der Schauspielerin Sarah Bernhardt, die im späten 19. und beginnenden 20. Jahrhundert zu den erfolgreichsten Künstlerinnen ihrer Zeit gehörte. Dazu werden die Darstellungen ausgewählter Rollenfiguren ebenso analysiert wie die schauspieltheoretischen Überlegungen Bernhardts und schließlich die Rezeption ihres Schaffens in Theaterkritiken, aber auch Werbebildern und Medieninszenierungen. Das lesenswerte Buch erlaubt Einblicke in konkrete theatrale Verkörperungen von Weiblichkeit im Fin de Siècle, unternimmt jedoch keine ausreichende theatergeschichtliche wie kulturwissenschaftliche Kontextualisierung, obwohl die Verfasserin in der Einleitung ihrer Studie das Ziel formuliert, Gendertheorie, Theatergeschichte und Kulturwissenschaft zu verknüpfen.Claudia Thorun examines the staging of femininity using the example of the actress Sarah Bernhardt, who in the late nineteenth century was among the most successful artists of her time. The study includes analyses of the representation of specific roles, Bernhardt’s theories on acting, and finally the reception of her work in theater critiques, as well as advertisement images and representations in the media. The book, which is a worthwhile read, allows for insight into the concrete theatrical embodiment of femininity at the fin de siècle. It does not provide, however, adequate contextualization within theater history nor cultural studies, even though in her introduction, the author asserts that it is her intention to link together gender theory, theater history, and cultural studies.

  7. Edgar Allan Poe's Physical Cosmology

    Science.gov (United States)

    Cappi, Alberto

    1994-06-01

    In this paper I describe the scientific content of Eureka, the prose poem written by Edgar Allan Poe in 1848. In that work, starting from metaphysical assumptions, Poe claims that the Universe is finite in an infinite Space, and that it was originated from a primordial Particle, whose fragmentation under the action of a repulsive force caused a diffusion of atoms in space. I will show that his subsequently collapsing universe represents a scientifically acceptable Newtonian model. In the framework of his evolving universe, Poe makes use of contemporary astronomical knowledge, deriving modern concepts such as a primordial atomic state of the universe and a common epoch of galaxy formation. Harrison found in Eureka the first, qualitative solution of the Olbers' paradox; I show that Poe also applies in a modern way the anthropic principle, trying to explain why the Universe is so large.

    Edgar Allan Poe, one of the best American storytellers and poets, suffered an episodic behaviour disorder partially triggered by alcohol and opiate use. Much confusion still exists about the last days of his turbulent life and the cause of his death at an early age. Different etiologies have been proposed to explain his main medical problem, however, complex partial seizures triggered by alcohol, poorly recognized at the time when Poe lived, seems to be one of the most acceptable hypothesis, among others discussed.

    Eureka is a ``prose poem'' published in 1848, where Edgar Allan Poe presents his original cosmology. While starting from metaphysical assumptions, Poe develops an evolving Newtonian model of the Universe which has many and non casual analogies with modern cosmology. Poe was well informed about astronomical and physical discoveries, and he was influenced by both contemporary science and ancient ideas. For these reasons, Eureka is a unique synthesis of metaphysics, art and science.

    Full Text Available L’article propose une lecture de la première et de la dernière œuvres de la dramaturge britannique Sarah Kane, Blasted et 4.48 Psychosis, afin de réfléchir sur son legs théâtral. En s’appuyant sur Survivance des lucioles de Georges Didi-Huberman (2009, le texte met en lumière le rapport à l’espoir qui émane de l’œuvre de Kane et de son pessimisme apparent. Delvaux voit, dans l’écriture fragmentée, sarcastique et provocante, non pas le testament d’une artiste cliniquement dépressive mais plutôt un ultime outil de résistance à la noirceur, un refus radical de cette posture cynique que lui attribuait la critique. This article offers a reading of British dramaturge Sarah Kane’s first and last pieces, Blasted and 4.48 Psychosis, in order to reflect on her dramatic heritage. Drawing upon Georges Didi-Huberman’s Survivance des lucioles (2009, the text sheds light on the question of hope in what has been seen as pessimism in Kane’s work. Rather than understanding Kane’s fragmented, sarcastic and provocative writing as a testament of a clinically depressed author, Delvaux sees it as a work of resistance, a desire to see the light in an all-encompassing cultural darkness, suggesting that Kane, in fact, refuses the cynical posturethat critics have associated with her work.

  8. The Seduction of Sarah: Travel Memoirs and Intercultural Learning

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Barbara Elizabeth Hanna

    2006-09-01

    Full Text Available The paper explores the nexus between intercultural storytelling and intercultural learning. Noting the wide appeal of the travel memoir set in France, it takes as a case study a book that, while positioned within that genre, attempts to shift some predictable patterns: Sarah Turnbull’s best-selling Almost French. Analysis shows that the book in fact participates in a subtle play of genres, whereby the lure of the travel memoir is used to entice readers towards a position where they read the book as a guide to French culture. The particular form of hybridity attempted is, however, a delicate enterprise, as the reception of the book demonstrates, in that the intercultural lessons on offer risk being overshadowed by the expectations readers bring to the genre of the travel memoir. The paper examines the competing seductions operating throughout the text and relates the conditions for taking up the opportunity for intercultural learning to questions of genre. It offers a pedagogical uptake of the textual analysis, thus bridging disciplines in a way that mirrors Turnbull’s bridging of genres.

    We present the new version of the Mathematica package SARAH which provides the same features for a non-supersymmetric model as previous versions for supersymmetric models. This includes an easy and straightforward definition of the model, the calculation of all vertices, mass matrices, tadpole equations, and self-energies. Also the two-loop renormalization group equations for a general gauge theory are now included and have been validated with the independent Python code PyR@te. Model files for FeynArts, CalcHep/CompHep, WHIZARD and in the UFO format can be written, and source code for SPheno for the calculation of the mass spectrum, a set of precision observables, and the decay widths and branching ratios of all states can be generated. Furthermore, the new version includes routines to output model files for Vevacious for both, supersymmetric and non-supersymmetric, models. Global symmetries are also supported with this version and by linking Susyno the handling of Lie groups has been improved and extended.

    2015-06-01

    An investigation into the health of green turtles was undertaken near Gladstone, Queensland, in response to a dramatic increase in stranding numbers in the first half of 2011. A total of 56 live turtles were subject to clinical examination and blood sampling for routine blood profiles, and 12 deceased turtles underwent a thorough necropsy examination. This population of green turtles was found to be in poor body condition and a range of infectious and non-infectious conditions were identified in the unhealthy turtles, including hepato-renal insufficiency (up to 81%, 27/33 based on clinical pathology), cachexia (92%, 11/12), parasitism (75%, 9/12), cardiopulmonary anomalies (42%, 5/12), gastroenteritis (25%, 3/12), masses (25%, 3/12) and mechanical impediments (17%, 2/12 based on necropsy). Overall, there was no evidence to indicate a unifying disease as a primary cause of the mass mortality. Recent adverse weather events, historic regional contamination and nearby industrial activities are discussed as potential causative factors.

Longe do heroísmo de alguns escritores e do realismo de outros, Edgar Allan Poe fez uma literatura que não era nem “nacional” nem “popular”. Sem estar comprometido com o espírito dos “heróis” pioneiros que construíam os Estados Unidos, Edgar Poe foi quem melhor entendeu o que se passava em seu país, ao procurar na alma do homem as mais profundas representações de sua época.

    Presents an obituary for Allan Urho Paivio, who passed away on June 19, 2016. One of his many accomplishments was the development of a dual-coding theory. Dual-coding theory, while very influential, has, unfortunately, been discussed all too often as a theory of mental imagery, and not within its larger context wherein mental imagery and verbal processes are separable but interconnected representational systems, an academic battle in clarification that Paivio waged much of his life. He published prodigiously, even in the decades after retirement. Among his many honors, he served as president of the Canadian Psychological Association (1975) and was appointed a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada (1978).

    1986-03-01

    Uranium-238 decay series nuclides dissolved in Antarctic ice samples were measured in areas of both high and low concentrations of volcanic glass shards. Ice from the Allan Hills site (high shard content) had high Ra-226, Th-230 and U-234 activities but similarly low U-238 activities in comparison with Antarctic ice samples without shards. The Ra-226, Th-230 and U-234 excesses were found to be proportional to the shard content, while the U-238 decay series results were consistent with the assumption that alpha decay products recoiled into the ice from the shards. Through this method of uranium series dating, it was learned that the Allen Hills Cul de Sac ice is approximately 325,000 years old.

  20. Allan deviation analysis of financial return series

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hernández-Pérez, R.

    2012-05-01

    We perform a scaling analysis for the return series of different financial assets applying the Allan deviation (ADEV), which is used in the time and frequency metrology to characterize quantitatively the stability of frequency standards since it has demonstrated to be a robust quantity to analyze fluctuations of non-stationary time series for different observation intervals. The data used are opening price daily series for assets from different markets during a time span of around ten years. We found that the ADEV results for the return series at short scales resemble those expected for an uncorrelated series, consistent with the efficient market hypothesis. On the other hand, the ADEV results for absolute return series for short scales (first one or two decades) decrease following approximately a scaling relation up to a point that is different for almost each asset, after which the ADEV deviates from scaling, which suggests that the presence of clustering, long-range dependence and non-stationarity signatures in the series drive the results for large observation intervals.

    2013-01-01

    The French Lieutenant’s Woman is the best-known novel written by John Fowles and is also called the post-modern metafiction. In the novel the mysterious woman Sarah is introduced, who rebels against Victorian conventions to pursue indepen-dence and freedom. Undoubtedly, Sarah is an independent woman ahead of her times. This paper is attempted to interpret the last ending of The French Lieutenant’s woman written by John Fowles, thus finding relevant evidence to support this interpreta-tion that Sarah has finally got her freedom which is not allowed against the Victorian background.

  8. Obituary: Allan R. Sandage (1926-2010)

    Science.gov (United States)

    Devorkin, David

    2011-12-01

    Allan Rex Sandage died of pancreatic cancer at his home in San Gabriel, California, in the shadow of Mount Wilson, on November 13, 2010. Born in Iowa City, Iowa, on June 18, 1926, he was 84 years old at his death, leaving his wife, former astronomer Mary Connelly Sandage, and two sons, David and John. He also left a legacy to the world of astronomical knowledge that has long been universally admired and appreciated, making his name synonymous with late 20th-Century observational cosmology. The only child of Charles Harold Sandage, a professor of advertising who helped establish that academic specialty after obtaining a PhD in business administration, and Dorothy Briggs Sandage, whose father was president of Graceland College in Iowa, Allan Sandage grew up in a thoroughly intellectual, university oriented atmosphere but also a peripatetic one taking him to Philadelphia and later to Illinois as his father rose in his career. During his 2 years in Philadelphia, at about age eleven, Allan developed a curiosity about astronomy stimulated by a friend's interest. His father bought him a telescope and he used it to systematically record sunspots, and later attempted to make a larger 6-inch reflector, a project left uncompleted. As a teenager Allan read widely, especially astronomy books of all kinds, recalling in particular The Glass Giant of Palomar as well as popular works by Eddington and Hubble (The Realm of the Nebulae) in the early 1940s. Although his family was Mormon, of the Reorganized Church, he was not practicing, though he later sporadically attended a Methodist church in Oxford, Iowa during his college years. Sandage knew by his high school years that he would engage in some form of intellectual life related to astronomy. He particularly recalls an influential science teacher at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio named Ray Edwards, who inspired him to think critically and "not settle for any hand-waving of any kind."

  9. Chemostratigraphy of glaciomarine sediments in the Sarah Formation, northwest Saudi Arabia

    Science.gov (United States)

    Craigie, Neil W.; Rees, Andrew J.

    2016-05-01

    The Sarah Formation of northern Saudi Arabia mainly consists of glacial 'outwash' sediments deposited by turbidite channels and fans. Prior to undertaking chemostratigraphy, the results of seismic interpretation revealed the Sarah Formation to be mainly deposited in a NW-SE trending turbidite system in the study area, comprising channels with associated fans. These are succeeded by fluvio marine sediments at the top of the Sarah Formation. In the absence of good biostratigraphic control, chemostratigraphy was found to be one of the few techniques that could be employed to produce a high resolution correlation scheme for four study wells. Geochemical data were acquired for 50 elements in 550 core samples by ICP-OES (Inductively Coupled Plasma - Optical Emission Spectrometry) and ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma - Mass Spectrometry) but only the 'key' ratios Zr/Nb, Nb/Ti, Nb/Cr, Rb/K and Th/Cr were employed for chemostratigraphic purposes as they show significant trends that enable correlative boundaries to be identified and a hierarchical scheme to be proposed. Variations in these parameters are largely related to changes in source/provenance. In order to avoid geochemical variations relating to changes in grain size/lithology, separate schemes were proposed for the sandstone and mudrock samples. The sandstone scheme consists of a hierarchical order of three zones, seven subzones and five divisions, while the mudrock scheme is less detailed, comprising three zones and seven subzones. A 'finalised' scheme, based on a combination of the two aforementioned ones, was found to be more useful than employing the correlation proposed for individual lithologies. One of the main conclusions of the study was that the basal chemozones (general term used to describe any chemostratigraphic zone, subzone or division) were identified in wells B and C but were missing from A and D. It is thought that the areas around the two latter wells represented topographically 'high' areas

    2016-02-01

    Full Text Available Seldom has someone emerged so unexpectedly and sensationally on to the American political scene as Sarah Palin. With Palin came what had rarely, if ever, been seen before on a presidential trail: hockey moms, Caribou-hunting, pitbulls in lipstick parcelled as political weaponry. And let’s not forget those five children, including Track 19, set to deploy to Iraq, Bristol, and her unplanned pregnancy at 17, and Trig, a six-month-old infant with Down’s syndrome. Never before had motherhood been so finely balanced with US presidential politics. Biological vigour translated into political energy, motherhood transformed into an intoxicating political ideal. This article focuses on Sarah Palin and how her brand of “rugged Alaskan motherhood” (PunditMom 2008 became central to her media image, as well as what this representation has to tell us about the relationship between mothering as a political ideal, US politics, and the media.

    1990-01-01

    Although the measurement of Allan variance of oscillators is well documented, there is a need for a simplified system for finding the degradation of phase noise and Allan variance step-by-step through a system. This article describes an instrumentation system for simultaneous measurement of additive phase noise and degradation in Allan variance through a transmitter system. Also included are measurements of a 20-kW X-band transmitter showing the effect of adding a pass tube regulator.

  1. Relationship between Allan variances and Kalman Filter parameters

    Science.gov (United States)

    Vandierendonck, A. J.; Mcgraw, J. B.; Brown, R. G.

    1984-01-01

    A relationship was constructed between the Allan variance parameters (H sub z, H sub 1, H sub 0, H sub -1 and H sub -2) and a Kalman Filter model that would be used to estimate and predict clock phase, frequency and frequency drift. To start with the meaning of those Allan Variance parameters and how they are arrived at for a given frequency source is reviewed. Although a subset of these parameters is arrived at by measuring phase as a function of time rather than as a spectral density, they all represent phase noise spectral density coefficients, though not necessarily that of a rational spectral density. The phase noise spectral density is then transformed into a time domain covariance model which can then be used to derive the Kalman Filter model parameters. Simulation results of that covariance model are presented and compared to clock uncertainties predicted by Allan variance parameters. A two state Kalman Filter model is then derived and the significance of each state is explained.

    The number of applications where precise clocks play a key role is steadily increasing, satellite navigation being the main example. Precise clock anomalies are hence critical events, and their characterization is a fundamental problem. When an anomaly occurs, the clock stability changes with time, and this variation can be characterized with the dynamic Allan variance (DAVAR). We obtain the DAVAR for a series of common clock anomalies, namely, a sinusoidal term, a phase jump, a frequency jump, and a sudden change in the clock noise variance. These anomalies are particularly common in space clocks. Our analytic results clarify how the clock stability changes during these anomalies.

    century, the parisian perfumery of Sarah Felix was famous especially for her cosmetic "L'Eau des Fées" ("Water of the Fairies"), a dyeing supposed to give back to the old hair the color of their youth. Sarah Felix, sister of the famous actress Rachel, exercised several jobs before becoming perfumer. At first, she was actress, then she tried ... oyster culture in Normandy ! Abandoning these activities, Sarah Felix became really a businesswoman in Paris. She dedicated herself to perfumery, in particular to "L'Eau des Fées", from 1866. To launch its product, she was associated to competency characters (engineer, pharmacist, physician) and benefited from the protection of the imperial family. A lawsuit between the associates and the 1870 war hindered the company's early days, but "L'Eau des Fées" provided with quality pledges, imposed itself definitely. The "Parfumerie des Fées" completed the range of its cosmetics with creams, powders, etc. Sarah Félix paid attention to present "L'Eau des Fées" as a dye devoid of toxicity. Was it really the case and could il be sold nowadays? These two issues are discussed in the last part.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Warner, S L

    1991-01-01

    Princess Marie Bonaparte was a colorful yet mysterious member of Freud's inner circle of psychoanalysis. In analysis with Freud beginning in 1925 (she was then 45 years old), she became a lay analyst and writer of many papers and books. Her most ambitious task was a 700-page psychobiography of Edgar Allan Poe that was first published in French in 1933. She was fascinated by Poe's gothic stories--with the return to life of dead persons and the eerie, unexpected turns of events. Her fascination with Poe can be traced to the similarity of their early traumatic life experiences. Bonaparte had lost her mother a month after her birth. Poe's father deserted the family when Edgar was two years old, and his mother died of tuberculosis when he was three. Poe's stories helped him to accommodate to these early traumatic losses. Bonaparte vicariously shared in Poe's loss and the fantasies of the return of the deceased parent in his stories. She was sensitive and empathetic to Poe's inner world because her inner world was similar. The result of this psychological fit between Poe and Bonaparte was her psychobiography, The Life and Works of Edgar Allan Poe. It was a milestone in psychobiography but limited in its psychological scope by its strong emphasis on early childhood trauma. Nevertheless it proved Bonaparte a bona fide creative psychoanalyst and not a dilettante propped up by her friendship with Freud.

    We report here on the use of the Allan deviation plot to analyze the long-term stability of a quartz-enhanced photoacoustic (QEPAS) gas sensor. The Allan plot provides information about the optimum averaging time for the QEPAS signal and allows the prediction of its ultimate detection limit. The Allan deviation can also be used to determine the main sources of noise coming from the individual components of the sensor. Quartz tuning fork thermal noise dominates for integration times up to 275 s, whereas at longer averaging times, the main contribution to the sensor noise originates from laser power instabilities.

  14. Radial Forcing and Edgar Allan Poe's Lengthening Pendulum

    McMillan, Matthew; Whitney, Heather M

    2013-01-01

    Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's The Pit and the Pendulum, we investigate a radially driven, lengthening pendulum. We first show that increasing the length of an undriven pendulum at a uniform rate does not amplify the oscillations in a manner consistent with the behavior of the scythe in Poe's story. We discuss parametric amplification and the transfer of energy (through the parameter of the pendulum's length) to the oscillating part of the system. In this manner radial driving may easily and intuitively be understood, and the fundamental concept applied in many other areas. We propose and show by a numerical model that appropriately timed radial forcing can increase the oscillation amplitude in a manner consistent with Poe's story. Our analysis contributes a computational exploration of the complex harmonic motion that can result from radially driving a pendulum, and sheds light on a mechanism by which oscillations can be amplified parametrically. These insights should prove especially valuable in the undergra...

    1999-06-01

    Edgar Allan Poe, one of the most celebrated of American storytellers, lived through and wrote descriptions of episodic unconsciousness, confusion, and paranoia. These symptoms have been attributed to alcohol or drug abuse but also could represent complex partial seizures, prolonged postictal states, or postictal psychosis. Complex partial seizures were not well described in Poe's time, which could explain a misdiagnosis. Alternatively, he may have suffered from complex partial epilepsy that was complicated or caused by substance abuse. Even today, persons who have epilepsy are mistaken for substance abusers and occasionally are arrested during postictal confusional states. Poe was able to use creative genius and experiences from illness to create memorable tales and poignant poems.

  16. The History of Allan Hills 84001 Revised: Multiple Shock Events

    Treiman, Allan H.

    1998-01-01

    The geologic history of Martian meteorite Allan Hills (ALH) 84001 is more complex than previously recognized, with evidence for four or five crater-forming impacts onto Mars. This history of repeated deformation and shock metamorphism appears to weaken some arguments that have been offered for and against the hypothesis of ancient Martian life in ALH 84001. Allan Hills 84001 formed originally from basaltic magma. Its first impact event (I1) is inferred from the deformation (D1) that produced the granular-textured bands ("crush zones") that transect the original igneous fabric. Deformation D1 is characterized by intense shear and may represent excavation or rebound flow of rock beneath a large impact crater. An intense thermal metamorphism followed D1 and may be related to it. The next impact (I2) produced fractures, (Fr2) in which carbonate "pancakes" were deposited and produced feldspathic glass from some of the igneous feldspars and silica. After I2, carbonate pancakes and globules were deposited in Fr2 fractures and replaced feldspathic glass and possibly crystalline silicates. Next, feldspars, feldspathic glass, and possibly some carbonates were mobilized and melted in the third impact (I3). Microfaulting, intense fracturing, and shear are also associated with 13. In the fourth impact (I4), the rock was fractured and deformed without significant heating, which permitted remnant magnetization directions to vary across fracture surfaces. Finally, ALH 84001 was ejected from Mars in event I5, which could be identical to I4. This history of multiple impacts is consistent with the photogeology of the Martian highlands and may help resolve some apparent contradictions among recent results on ALH 84001. For example, the submicron rounded magnetite grains in the carbonate globules could be contemporaneous with carbonate deposition, whereas the elongate magnetite grains, epitaxial on carbonates, could be ascribed to vapor-phase deposition during I3.

    2015-01-01

    The accepted rule for women contributing to nineteenth-century science before 1851 was that they could play only secondary roles in its production and authorship—as translators, illustrators, popularizers—and these by virtue of kinship or marriage to eminent scientists in the field or the laboratory. Sarah Bowdich (Lee) (1791–1856) presents an important amendment to this rule. As an explorer of West Africa on an equal scientific footing with her husband, and then a writer of science independently after his early death, she had other key roles as Georges Cuvier's cross-Channel scientific collaborator and as his first biographer. This article investigates and reframes Sarah's many individual achievements in science and its writing, to examine the larger questions of her case. How were her publications and ‘uneasy career’ in science possible? Can research on women in science today find inspiration in her example? PMID:26489182

    Full Text Available This article seeked to read the interconnected narratives of Sarah and Hagar (Genesis 16, 21 in terms of the hermeneutical lens of human dignity. For the purpose of this article, recent studies on the performative nature of emotions, which considered the central role of emotions such as pain, disgust and hatred in shaping the lives of individuals as well as the ways in which people relate to one another, were helpful in contemplating the situations of dehumanisation faced by both Sarah and Hagar as well as the broader question regarding upholding human worth in a context of indignity. This article furthermore considered the role of emotions in a conversation on ethics and particularly the way in which the narrative offered a fruitful avenue for considering Israel�s relationship to their neighbours � a line of interpretation that holds potential for reflecting on complex interracial and interethnic relationships in today�s global context.

  4. The calcineurin inhibitor Sarah (Nebula exacerbates Aβ42 phenotypes in a Drosophila model of Alzheimer's disease

    Full Text Available Expression of the Down syndrome critical region 1 (DSCR1 protein, an inhibitor of the Ca2+-dependent phosphatase calcineurin, is elevated in the brains of individuals with Down syndrome (DS or Alzheimer's disease (AD. Although increased levels of DSCR1 were often observed to be deleterious to neuronal health, its beneficial effects against AD neuropathology have also been reported, and the roles of DSCR1 on the pathogenesis of AD remain controversial. Here, we investigated the role of sarah (sra; also known as nebula, a Drosophila DSCR1 ortholog, in amyloid-β42 (Aβ42-induced neurological phenotypes in Drosophila. We detected sra expression in the mushroom bodies of the fly brain, which are a center for learning and memory in flies. Moreover, similar to humans with AD, Aβ42-expressing flies showed increased Sra levels in the brain, demonstrating that the expression pattern of DSCR1 with regard to AD pathogenesis is conserved in Drosophila. Interestingly, overexpression of sra using the UAS-GAL4 system exacerbated the rough-eye phenotype, decreased survival rates and increased neuronal cell death in Aβ42-expressing flies, without modulating Aβ42 expression. Moreover, neuronal overexpression of sra in combination with Aβ42 dramatically reduced both locomotor activity and the adult lifespan of flies, whereas flies with overexpression of sra alone showed normal climbing ability, albeit with a slightly reduced lifespan. Similarly, treatment with chemical inhibitors of calcineurin, such as FK506 and cyclosporin A, or knockdown of calcineurin expression by RNA interference (RNAi, exacerbated the Aβ42-induced rough-eye phenotype. Furthermore, sra-overexpressing flies displayed significantly decreased mitochondrial DNA and ATP levels, as well as increased susceptibility to oxidative stress compared to that of control flies. Taken together, our results demonstrating that sra overexpression augments Aβ42 cytotoxicity in Drosophila suggest that DSCR1

    When Allan V. Cox was presented AGU's John Adam Fleming Medal in 1969, John Verhoogen described Cox's work as “characterized by painstaking care, proper attention to and use of statistics, and great insight.” Those same thoughts were echoed on February 3, 1987, during the memorial service for Cox, who died in a bicycling accident on January 27. The Stanford Memorial Church was crowded with colleagues, students, and friends.The Fleming Medal was presented to Cox in recognition of his studies on the fluctuation of the geomagnetic field. These studies helped to confirm theories of continental drift and seafloor spreading. The medal is awarded annually by AGU for original research and technical leadership in geomagnetism, atmospheric electricity, aeronomy, and related sciences. In addition to the Fleming Medal, Cox received the Antarctic Service Medal in 1970, the Vetlesen Prize in 1971, and the Arthur L. Day Prize of the National Academy of Sciences in 1984.

  9. Application of Allan Deviation to Assessing Uncertainties of Continuous-measurement Instruments, and Optimizing Calibration Schemes

    Jacobson, Gloria; Rella, Chris; Farinas, Alejandro

    2014-05-01

    Technological advancement of instrumentation in atmospheric and other geoscience disciplines over the past decade has lead to a shift from discrete sample analysis to continuous, in-situ monitoring. Standard error analysis used for discrete measurements is not sufficient to assess and compare the error contribution of noise and drift from continuous-measurement instruments, and a different statistical analysis approach should be applied. The Allan standard deviation analysis technique developed for atomic clock stability assessment by David W. Allan [1] can be effectively and gainfully applied to continuous measurement instruments. As an example, P. Werle et al has applied these techniques to look at signal averaging for atmospheric monitoring by Tunable Diode-Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS) [2]. This presentation will build on, and translate prior foundational publications to provide contextual definitions and guidelines for the practical application of this analysis technique to continuous scientific measurements. The specific example of a Picarro G2401 Cavity Ringdown Spectroscopy (CRDS) analyzer used for continuous, atmospheric monitoring of CO2, CH4 and CO will be used to define the basics features the Allan deviation, assess factors affecting the analysis, and explore the time-series to Allan deviation plot translation for different types of instrument noise (white noise, linear drift, and interpolated data). In addition, the useful application of using an Allan deviation to optimize and predict the performance of different calibration schemes will be presented. Even though this presentation will use the specific example of the Picarro G2401 CRDS Analyzer for atmospheric monitoring, the objective is to present the information such that it can be successfully applied to other instrument sets and disciplines.

    Yang Jie; Zhang Yuan

    2016-01-01

    As an important scholar of contem-porary sinology, Sarah Allan’s research on Chinese ancient history, on the basis of continuing the tra-dition of historical studies and archaeology, used Claude Lévi-Strauss’ theory and method of struc-turalism for reference, and opened a new path for western Sinological research. Her study of ancient legends initiated wide interest in the circles of si-nology, and was considered to be both special and very innovative. In her masterpiece The Heir and the Sage: Dynastic Legend in Early China, Allan used a method for analyzing mythology which is transformed from anthropological structuralism. She made an in-depth and systematic research on the dynastic legends from the legendary period of Tang Yao to the periods of Yin and Zhou which were recorded in the classical literature of the pre-Qin period, and discussed heuristically the his-torical perception, structure characteristics of the expressions, as well as the values of the subject in the legendary records. By summarizing the theoret-ical logic and main ideas of The Heir and the Sage, this article attempts to open a preliminary discus-sion on how to promote anthropological research on the legendary period of early China using the meth-odology of structuralism. In her Sinological re-search works which are dedicated to the study of the legendary period of ancient China, such as The Heir and the Sage: Dynastic Legend in Early Chi-na,The Shape of the Turtle:Myth ,Art and Cosmos in Early China, and The Way of Water and Sprouts of Virtue:Root Metaphor in Early Chinese Philo-sophical Thought, Allan has tried to use the meth-odology of structuralism to analyze the historical expressions and ideas contained in ancient Chinese literature. In so doing, she is seeking to re -ex-plain the historical consciousness and philosophy of ancient China. It could be said that Allan’s Sino-logical research has pronounced anthropological features concerning her problems, consciousness, and

  7. On the relation between uncertainties of weighted frequency averages and the various types of Allan deviations

    CERN Document Server

    Benkler, Erik; Sterr, Uwe

    2015-01-01

    The power spectral density in Fourier frequency domain, and the different variants of the Allan deviation (ADEV) in dependence on the averaging time are well established tools to analyse the fluctuation properties and frequency instability of an oscillatory signal. It is often supposed that the statistical uncertainty of a measured average frequency is given by the ADEV at a well considered averaging time. However, this approach requires further mathematical justification and refinement, which has already been done regarding the original ADEV for certain noise types. Here we provide the necessary background to use the modified Allan deviation (modADEV) and other two-sample deviations to determine the uncertainty of weighted frequency averages. The type of two-sample deviation used to determine the uncertainty depends on the method used for determination of the average. We find that the modADEV, which is connected with $\\Lambda$-weighted averaging, and the two sample deviation associated to a linear phase regr...

  8. Estimating the Allan variance in the presence of long periods of missing data and outliers

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sesia, Ilaria; Tavella, Patrizia

    2008-12-01

    The ability of the Allan variance (AVAR) to identify and estimate the typical clock noise is widely accepted, and its use is recommended by international standards. Recently, a time-varying version called Dynamic Allan variance (DAVAR) was suggested and exploited. Currently, the AVAR is commonly used in applications to space and satellite systems, in particular in monitoring the clocks of the Global Positioning System, and also in the framework of the European project Galileo. In these applications stability estimation, either AVAR or DAVAR (or other similar variances), presents some peculiar aspects which are not commonly encountered when the clock data are measured in a laboratory. In particular, data from space clocks may typically present outliers and missing values. Hence, special attention has to be paid when dealing with such experimental measurements. In this work we propose an estimation algorithm and its implementation in a robust software code (in MATLAB® language) able to estimate the AVAR in the case of missing data, unequally spaced data, outliers, and with long periods of missing observation, so that the Allan variance estimates turn out unbiased and with the maximum use of all the available data.

  9. On the Design of Attitude-Heading Reference Systems Using the Allan Variance.

    The Allan variance is a method to characterize stochastic random processes. The technique was originally developed to characterize the stability of atomic clocks and has also been successfully applied to the characterization of inertial sensors. Inertial navigation systems (INS) can provide accurate results in a short time, which tend to rapidly degrade in longer time intervals. During the last decade, the performance of inertial sensors has significantly improved, particularly in terms of signal stability, mechanical robustness, and power consumption. The mass and volume of inertial sensors have also been significantly reduced, offering system-level design and accommodation advantages. This paper presents a complete methodology for the characterization and modeling of inertial sensors using the Allan variance, with direct application to navigation systems. Although the concept of sensor fusion is relatively straightforward, accurate characterization and sensor-information filtering is not a trivial task, yet they are essential for good performance. A complete and reproducible methodology utilizing the Allan variance, including all the intermediate steps, is described. An end-to-end (E2E) process for sensor-error characterization and modeling up to the final integration in the sensor-fusion scheme is explained in detail. The strength of this approach is demonstrated with representative tests on novel, high-grade inertial sensors. Experimental navigation results are presented from two distinct robotic applications: a planetary exploration rover prototype and an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV).

  11. The gendered embodiment of shame: Intersections of acquaintance rape, trauma and self-blame in Pompidou posse by Sarah Lotz

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jessica Murray

    2014-08-01

    Full Text Available This article offers a feminist literary analysis of the gendered embodiment of shame in Pompidou posse by Sarah Lotz. In this novel, Lotz depicts female characters who are sexually assaulted by acquaintances and the resultant shame and trauma reside in their bodies. I will demonstrate that the embodied shame of these characters is distinctly gendered and that this shapes their attempts to cope with the aftermath of the sexual assaults. A close reading of the text reveals that the characters are exposed to overwhelming social messages of female culpability in a larger context that is rife with misogyny. As a result, they anticipate blame to such an extent that they blame themselves and internalise this blame as shame. By focusing on the bodies of the survivors, Lotz demonstrates the embodiment of shame, but she also suggests a corporeal challenge to silencing. The bodies of these characters speak loudly, albeit sometimes in the halting language of trauma, and they function to alert them to danger, to help them excavate memories that are made inaccessible and to testify to traumatic sexual assault.

    Morgan, Gregory J

    2014-12-01

    The Polish-American scientist Ludwik Gross made two important discoveries in the early 1950s. He showed that two viruses - murine leukemia virus and parotid tumor virus - could cause cancer when they were injected into susceptible animals. At first, Gross's discoveries were greeted with skepticism: it seemed implausible that viruses could cause a disease as complex as cancer. Inspired by Gross's initial experiments, similar results were obtained by Sarah Stewart and Bernice Eddy who later renamed the parotid tumor virus SE polyoma virus after finding it could cause many different types of tumors in mice, hamsters, and rats. Eventually the "SE" was dropped and virologists adopted the name "polyoma virus." After Gross's work was published, additional viruses capable of causing solid tumors or blood-borne tumors in mice were described by Arnold Graffi, Charlotte Friend, John Moloney and others. By 1961, sufficient data had been accumulated for Gross to confidently publish an extensive monograph--Oncogenic Viruses--the first history of tumor virology, which became a standard reference work and marked the emergence of tumor virology as a distinct, legitimate field of study.

    The authors investigated the early women physicians of the New York Infirmary for Women and Children and their role in shaping the career and accomplishments of their student and later colleague, Dr. Sarah J. McNutt. These influences eventually led McNutt to be inducted into the American Neurologic Association (ANA). McNutt was educated at the New York Infirmary for Women and Children by early women physicians including Drs. Elizabeth and Emily Blackwell and Mary Putnam Jacobi. McNutt worked to improve the educational opportunities for practicing physicians and nurses by developing postgraduate lectures and organizations. With her early colleagues she developed the New York Infirmary for Women and Children into a reputable hospital and woman's medical college. One of the consultants to the New York Infirmary for Women and Children was Royal W. Amidon, secretary of the ANA in 1883. McNutt's close association with the Clinical Society of the New York Post Graduate Medical School and Hospital brought her into direct contact with other prominent ANA members including C.L. Dana and W.A. Hammond. In 1884, McNutt was nominated by Amidon and Hammond as the first woman member to the ANA and was elected. Her ANA thesis was Double Infantile Spastic Hemiplegia. McNutt was elected into the ANA at a time when women physicians were first being recognized and included into mainstream medicine. Her historic election acknowledged her accomplishments and highlighted the proactive role of the early ANA in forging new medical policies in the United States.

  3. Application of the Allan Variance to Time Series Analysis in Astrometry and Geodesy: A Review

    CERN Document Server

    Malkin, Zinovy

    2016-01-01

    The Allan variance (AVAR) was introduced 50 years ago as a statistical tool for assessing of the frequency standards deviations. For the past decades, AVAR has increasingly being used in geodesy and astrometry to assess the noise characteristics in geodetic and astrometric time series. A specific feature of astrometric and geodetic measurements, as compared with the clock measurements, is that they are generally associated with uncertainties; thus, an appropriate weighting should be applied during data analysis. Besides, some physically connected scalar time series naturally form series of multi-dimensional vectors. For example, three station coordinates time series $X$, $Y$, and $Z$ can be combined to analyze 3D station position variations. The classical AVAR is not intended for processing unevenly weighted and/or multi-dimensional data. Therefore, AVAR modifications, namely weighted AVAR (WAVAR), multi-dimensional AVAR (MAVAR), and weighted multi-dimensional AVAR (WMAVAR), were introduced to overcome these ...

    Full Text Available Diversi sono i motivi di interesse per il volume, frutto dell’incontro fra le prospettive di alcuni specialisti, originatosi in occasione del bicentenario della nascita di Poe. Da un lato, l’opportunità di una riconsiderazione globale dell’opera, nel segno della pluralità di letture – e delle tradizioni interpretative – che si offrono oggi ai lettori; dall’altro, la verifica storico-critica dell’incidenza dello scrittore sui percorsi delle singole culture nazionali. Il ritorno di Edgar Allan Poe & Co. si caratterizza pertanto per la coesistenza, al suo interno, di una modalità eminentemente ricognitiva, la quale procede rintracciando alcuni dei sentieri più significativi della critica, e di un approccio meno descrittivo che induttivo, rivolto a sollevare un luogo, una o più narrazioni, o ancora un nodo concettuale, come specimen dell’attualità e della rilevanza culturale dell’opera poesca.

  6. Avoiding Aliasing in Allan Variance: an Application to Fiber Link Data Analysis

    CERN Document Server

    Calosso, Claudio E; Micalizio, Salvatore

    2015-01-01

    Optical fiber links are known as the most performing tools to transfer ultrastable frequency reference signals. However, these signals are affected by phase noise up to bandwidths of several kilohertz and a careful data processing strategy is required to properly estimate the uncertainty. This aspect is often overlooked and a number of approaches have been proposed to implicitly deal with it. Here, we face this issue in terms of aliasing and show how typical tools of signal analysis can be adapted to the evaluation of optical fiber links performance. In this way, it is possible to use the Allan variance as estimator of stability and there is no need to introduce other estimators. The general rules we derive can be extended to all optical links. As an example, we apply this method to the experimental data we obtained on a 1284 km coherent optical link for frequency dissemination, which we realized in Italy.

  7. Application of Fast Dynamic Allan Variance for the Characterization of FOGs-Based Measurement While Drilling

    The stability of a fiber optic gyroscope (FOG) in measurement while drilling (MWD) could vary with time because of changing temperature, high vibration, and sudden power failure. The dynamic Allan variance (DAVAR) is a sliding version of the Allan variance. It is a practical tool that could represent the non-stationary behavior of the gyroscope signal. Since the normal DAVAR takes too long to deal with long time series, a fast DAVAR algorithm has been developed to accelerate the computation speed. However, both the normal DAVAR algorithm and the fast algorithm become invalid for discontinuous time series. What is worse, the FOG-based MWD underground often keeps working for several days; the gyro data collected aboveground is not only very time-consuming, but also sometimes discontinuous in the timeline. In this article, on the basis of the fast algorithm for DAVAR, we make a further advance in the fast algorithm (improved fast DAVAR) to extend the fast DAVAR to discontinuous time series. The improved fast DAVAR and the normal DAVAR are used to responsively characterize two sets of simulation data. The simulation results show that when the length of the time series is short, the improved fast DAVAR saves 78.93% of calculation time. When the length of the time series is long (6×105 samples), the improved fast DAVAR reduces calculation time by 97.09%. Another set of simulation data with missing data is characterized by the improved fast DAVAR. Its simulation results prove that the improved fast DAVAR could successfully deal with discontinuous data. In the end, a vibration experiment with FOGs-based MWD has been implemented to validate the good performance of the improved fast DAVAR. The results of the experience testify that the improved fast DAVAR not only shortens computation time, but could also analyze discontinuous time series. PMID:27941600

  15. Allan variance computed in space domain: Application to InSAR data to characterize noise and geophysical signal

    CERN Document Server

    Cavalié, Olivier

    2015-01-01

    The Allan variance was introduced fifty years ago for analyzing the stability of frequency standards. Beside its metrological interest, it is also an estimator of the large trends of the power spectral density (PSD) of frequency deviation. For instance, the Allan variance is able to discriminate different types of noise characterized by different power laws in the PSD. But, it was also used in other fields: accelerometry, geophysics, geodesy, astrophysics and even finances! However, it seems that up to now, it has been exclusively applied for time series analysis. We propose here to use the Allan variance onto spatial data. Interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) is used in geophysics to image ground displacements in space (over the SAR image spatial coverage) and in time thank to the regular SAR image acquisitions by dedicated satellites. The main limitation of the technique is the atmospheric disturbances that affect the radar signal while traveling from the sensor to the ground and back. In this p...

  16. Proposed Ice Flow, Given 200m and 400m Additional Ice in the Allan Hills Region, Antarctica: Implications for Meteorite Concentration

    Traub-Metlay, S.; Cassidy, W. A.

    1992-07-01

    The Allan Hills-David Glacier region contains some of the most highly populated meteorite stranding surfaces in Antarctica. Nearly 2000 meteorites have to date been collected from the icefields associated with the Allan Hills, and nearly 1500 from areas around Elephant Moraine. While much attention has been focused on the current geological and glaciological conditions of these stranding surfaces, less work has been done concerning what they may have looked like in the past, when ice thicknesses may have been greater. In this study, conjectural maps of the current Allan Hills area with 200 meters and 400 meters of additional ice cover each are analyzed for probable regional and local ice flow patterns. A dramatic decrease in ice thickness over a relatively brief period of time could result either from climatic change or a geologically rapid regional uplift. Delisle and Sievers (1991) noted that the valley between the Allan Hills Main Icefield and the Allan Hills resembles a half-graben resulting from east-west extensional tectonics, and that the mesa-like bedrock features associated with the Near Western and Mid Western Icefields resemble fault blocks. They concluded that the Allan Hills area icefields may have become active stranding surfaces as a result of a regional uplift within the past 1-2 million years, assuming a current rate of uplift in the Allan Hills region of ~100 meters/million years. Whether the cause was climatic or tectonic, generalized maps of current ice contours plus 400 and 200 meters ice may provide views of what the Allan Hills region looked like just before activation of the modern meteorite stranding surfaces (Figs. 1 and 2). At an ice thickness greater by 400 meters, ice could flow smoothly over the Allan Hills and would drain down to the Mawson Glacier via the Odell Glacier, east of the Allan Hills; down the Manhaul Bay depression between the east and west arms of Allan Hills; and down the half-graben discovered by Delisle and Sievers

  17. THE DEAD-LIVING-MOTHER: MARIE BONAPARTE'S INTERPRETATION OF EDGAR ALLAN POE'S SHORT STORIES.

    Princess Marie Bonaparte is an important figure in the history of psychoanalysis, remembered for her crucial role in arranging Freud's escape to safety in London from Nazi Vienna, in 1938. This paper connects us to Bonaparte's work on Poe's short stories. Founded on concepts of Freudian theory and an exhaustive review of the biographical facts, Marie Bonaparte concluded that the works of Edgar Allan Poe drew their most powerful inspirational force from the psychological consequences of the early death of the poet's mother. In Bonaparte's approach, which was powerfully influenced by her recognition of the impact of the death of her own mother when she was born-an understanding she gained in her analysis with Freud-the thesis of the dead-living-mother achieved the status of a paradigmatic key to analyze and understand Poe's literary legacy. This paper explores the background and support of this hypothesis and reviews Bonaparte's interpretation of Poe's most notable short stories, in which extraordinary female figures feature in the narrative.

  18. Twenty-Five Years of Applications of the Modified Allan Variance in Telecommunications.

    2016-04-01

    The Modified Allan Variance (MAVAR) was originally defined in 1981 for measuring frequency stability in precision oscillators. Due to its outstanding accuracy in discriminating power-law noise, it attracted significant interest among telecommunications engineers since the early 1990s, when it was approved as a standard measure in international standards, redressed as Time Variance (TVAR), for specifying the time stability of network synchronization signals and of equipment clocks. A dozen years later, the usage of MAVAR was also introduced for Internet traffic analysis to estimate self-similarity and long-range dependence. Further, in this field, it demonstrated superior accuracy and sensitivity, better than most popular tools already in use. This paper surveys the last 25 years of progress in extending the field of application of the MAVAR in telecommunications. First, the rationale and principles of the MAVAR are briefly summarized. Its adaptation as TVAR for specification of timing stability is presented. The usage of MAVAR/TVAR in telecommunications standards is reviewed. Examples of measurements on real telecommunications equipment clocks are presented, providing an overview on their actual performance in terms of MAVAR. Moreover, applications of MAVAR to network traffic analysis are surveyed. The superior accuracy of MAVAR in estimating long-range dependence is emphasized by highlighting some remarkable practical examples of real network traffic analysis.

  19. Observation, Inference, and Imagination: Elements of Edgar Allan Poe's Philosophy of Science

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gelfert, Axel

    2014-03-01

    Edgar Allan Poe's standing as a literary figure, who drew on (and sometimes dabbled in) the scientific debates of his time, makes him an intriguing character for any exploration of the historical interrelationship between science, literature and philosophy. His sprawling `prose-poem' Eureka (1848), in particular, has sometimes been scrutinized for anticipations of later scientific developments. By contrast, the present paper argues that it should be understood as a contribution to the raging debates about scientific methodology at the time. This methodological interest, which is echoed in Poe's `tales of ratiocination', gives rise to a proposed new mode of—broadly abductive—inference, which Poe attributes to the hybrid figure of the `poet-mathematician'. Without creative imagination and intuition, Science would necessarily remain incomplete, even by its own standards. This concern with imaginative (abductive) inference ties in nicely with his coherentism, which grants pride of place to the twin virtues of Simplicity and Consistency, which must constrain imagination lest it degenerate into mere fancy.

  20. Fame after Life: The Mystery of Edgar Allan Poe’s Death

    Full Text Available Although contemporary legends often deal with the trials and anx-ieties of everyday life, a considerable body of folk narratives deals with famous historical people and the mysteries, rumors, and anecdotes ascribed to them. American author Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849 was a trend-setting author of gothic horror and dark mysteries. His short, difficult life and strange death have fueled both academic and folkloristic narratives. Where the academic narratives often analyze his fiction biographically as reflections of his life such as his impoverishment, alcoholism, and frustrated ambition, the folk narratives typically focus on his death at the age of forty. By straddling literary and popular fame, Poe-lore occupies a dynamic Spielraum in contemporary folklore because his haunted life and mysterious death, similar to the literary conventions for the gothic in literature, collapse ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture. The folklore of famous people is intimately – perhaps even mysteriously – tied to the perception of individual identity and the social experience of city crowds, strangers, and alienation. In Poe’s case, the intertwining of his fiction with his real-life struggles has made Poe scholarship the most biographically centered of any American writer, past or present, and produced Poe not only as a towering legend in American literature, but also as a legendary figure in the popular imagination.

  1. Using Allan Variance to Analyze the Zero-differenced Stochastic Model Characteristics of GPS

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available The estimation criteria for solving parameters in zero-differenced GPS positioning is that observations obey Gaussian white noise distribution. But a number of pioneering studies point out that the white noise would be damaged by satellites errors, propagation errors, station environment errors and so on. Meanwhile, un-modeling errors also have adverse effects. These errors not only undermine the assumption estimation criteria, and some non-white noises are likely to be absorbed by state parameters. In result, the accuracy of estimates is influenced. This paper regards white noise, colored noise and un-modeling errors as ZD stochastic model of GPS. Then the Allan variance method is proposed to analyze the posteriori residuals which can represent the Stochastic characteristics of GPS data. Noise component and parameters are mainly investigated. The result shows GPS noise behaves as WN plus GM. The phase and pseudorange WN is 2.392 mm and 0.936 m respectively, GM process noise is 4.450 mm/√s and 0.833 m/√s respectively, correlation time is 52.074 s and 14.737 s respectively. It is found that the phase GM component is associated with satellite, but the rest is associated with station. A number of analysis indicate that the ZD stochastic model characteristics of GPS obeys non-Gaussian white noise distribution and is to be refined.

    Full Text Available Germany has seen a recent upsurge in publications proclaiming that feminism is again an urgent matter for a new generation of women. Faced with the reactionary demography debate and the hegemony of second-wave feminism, young writers, musicians, journalists, and critics call for new models of feminism relevant to women today. As one of these viable models, popfeminism draws on dominant trends in mass culture, on pop’s forty-year history as a cultural prefix in Germany, and on traditional feminism in order to create a new, ostensibly apolitical, feminist subculture based in self-stylization and individual autonomy. Shared by many popfeminist sources is the depiction of negatively coded female corporeality. This article begins with a theoretical analysis of writings on sexuality and the body in recent (popfeminist nonfiction. It then examines the negative corporeal self-stylizations in Turkish-German rapper Lady Bitch Ray’s performances since 2006, in former music video host Charlotte Roche’s novel Feuchtgebiete (2008, and in media personality Sarah Kuttner’s novel Mängelexemplar (2009. Ultimately, these negatively coded bodies are shown to uncover popfeminism’s political intent.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA commonly affects the hands and wrists with inflammation, deformity, pain, weakness and restricted mobility leading to reduced function. The effectiveness of exercise for RA hands is uncertain, although evidence from small scale studies is promising. The Strengthening And Stretching for Rheumatoid Arthritis of the Hand (SARAH trial is a pragmatic, multi-centre randomised controlled trial evaluating the clinical and cost effectiveness of adding an optimised exercise programme for hands and upper limbs to best practice usual care for patients with RA. Methods/design 480 participants with problematic RA hands will be recruited through 17 NHS trusts. Treatments will be provided by physiotherapists and occupational therapists. Participants will be individually randomised to receive either best practice usual care (joint protection advice, general exercise advice, functional splinting and assistive devices or best practice usual care supplemented with an individualised exercise programme of strengthening and stretching exercises. The study assessors will be blinded to treatment allocation and will follow participants up at four and 12 months. The primary outcome measure is the Hand function subscale of the Michigan Hand Outcome Questionnaire, and secondary outcomes include hand and wrist impairment measures, quality of life, and resource use. Economic and qualitative studies will also be carried out in parallel. Discussion This paper describes the design and development of a trial protocol of a complex intervention study based in therapy out-patient departments. The findings will provide evidence to support or refute the use of an optimised exercise programme for RA of the hand in addition to best practice usual care.

  12. “A horror so deep only ritual can contain it”: The art of dying in the theatre of Sarah Kane

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sara Soncini

    2010-10-01

    Full Text Available Death is an overarching presence in Sarah Kane's dramatic universe, peopled by characters charging towards death, and usually encountering it in scenes of Grand Guignol excess and grotesque violence. Death is ambivalently presented as the only escape from the nightmare of living and, at the same time, as that which makes living a nightmare; as the moment of "complete sanity and humanity" in which "everything suddenly connects", and as the ultimate, irrevocable and unredeemable act of self-annihilation. Following Kane's turn towards a more poetic form of drama, in her last two plays this discourse of death is handed over to the words nameless characters or unidentified voices who are likewise engaged in a long, painful quest for selfhood pivoting on the awareness of mortality and the simultaneous dread of and longing for death it engenders. This essay focuses on the ritual quality of the death scenes and/or narratives that crowd Kane's drama. Throughout her work, dying is never an easy, straightforward business, but rather a long, complicated, and at times frustrating mise en scène which also entails rehearsing a repertory of traditional rituals and, once their shortcomings become apparent, devising and testing new ones. The amount of theatricality involved in the art of dying is foregrounded through a web of intertextual references to other literary and/or dramatic sources; this dialogue ties in with a self-reflexive probing of the theatre's ability to provide a ritual that will be capable of "contain[ing] the horror" by supplying a formal framework to express, embody and experience death collectively.

    Francis, Roger A

    This study examines all documented information regarding the final days and death of Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849), in an attempt to determine the most likely cause of death of the American poet, short story writer, and literary critic. Information was gathered from letters, newspaper accounts, and magazine articles written during the period after Poe's death, and also from biographies and medical journal articles written up until the present. A chronology of Poe's final days was constructed, and this was used to form a differential diagnosis of possible causes of death. Death theories over the last 160 years were analyzed using this information. This analysis, along with a review of Poe's past medical history, would seem to support an alcohol-related cause of death.

    Background Untreated advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has an overall poor prognosis. Currently there are 2 ongoing prospective randomized controlled trials that are evaluating the efficacy and safety of sorafenib and selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) with yttrium-90 resin microspheres in patients with advanced HCC. The SorAfenib versus Radioembolisation in Advanced Hepatocellular carcinoma (SARAH; 459 patients) trial is being performed in Europe and the SIRt VErsus SorafeNIB (SIRveNIB; 360 patients) trial in the Asia Pacific region. Prospectively combining the results, these trials will not only allow for increased precision to estimate efficacy (in terms of survival), but will also provide increased statistical power for subgroup analyses. Objective To ensure the prospectivity and transparency of the meta-analysis. Methods The sirVEnib and SARAH merge PROject (VESPRO) is an individual, patient-data prospective meta-analysis of the SIRveNIB and SARAH randomized trials. The VESPRO protocol includes prespecified hypotheses, inclusion criteria, and outcome measures. The primary outcome measure is overall survival and secondary outcomes include tumor response rate, progression-free survival, progression in the liver as first event, and disease control in the liver.

    Full Text Available Este artigo é uma reflexão sobre o processo de formação identitária do espiritismo a partir da análise de seu discurso fundador presente na obra de Allan Kardec (1804-1869. Para cumprir este objetivo, trabalhar-se-á com a hipótese de que tal processo acontece a partir de uma peculiar interação do espiritismo com três instâncias de conhecimento: a ciência, a filosofia e a religião. Através da análise do exemplo específico de como o espiritismo interpreta elementos da tradição cristã-católica, dando-lhes um significado renovado, pretende-se demonstrar que neste jogo, o conceito de espiritismo se configura como um conceito híbrido, de caráter polissêmico, o qual aponta para o fato de que a nova doutrina e o movimento articulado em seu entorno nascem sob o signo da mediação. Tais reflexões indicariam que, ao fazerem referência à obra de Kardec como núcleo imaginário de identificação doutrinária, grupos das diversas tendências dentro do espiritismo contemporâneo podem encontrar relativas zonas de conforto para seu progressivo desenvolvimento. Palavras-chave: Espiritismo; Ciência; Filosofia; Religião; Fronteiras.

    Full Text Available Mutations in the thyroid hormone (TH transporter MCT8 have been identified as the cause for Allan-Herndon-Dudley Syndrome (AHDS, characterized by severe psychomotor retardation and altered TH serum levels. Here we report a novel MCT8 mutation identified in 4 generations of one family, and its functional characterization.Proband and family members were screened for 60 genes involved in X-linked cognitive impairment and the MCT8 mutation was confirmed. Functional consequences of MCT8 mutations were studied by analysis of [125I]TH transport in fibroblasts and transiently transfected JEG3 and COS1 cells, and by subcellular localization of the transporter.The proband and a male cousin demonstrated clinical findings characteristic of AHDS. Serum analysis showed high T3, low rT3, and normal T4 and TSH levels in the proband. A MCT8 mutation (c.869C>T; p.S290F was identified in the proband, his cousin, and several female carriers. Functional analysis of the S290F mutant showed decreased TH transport, metabolism and protein expression in the three cell types, whereas the S290A mutation had no effect. Interestingly, both uptake and efflux of T3 and T4 was impaired in fibroblasts of the proband, compared to his healthy brother. However, no effect of the S290F mutation was observed on TH efflux from COS1 and JEG3 cells. Immunocytochemistry showed plasma membrane localization of wild-type MCT8 and the S290A and S290F mutants in JEG3 cells.We describe a novel MCT8 mutation (S290F in 4 generations of a family with Allan-Herndon-Dudley Syndrome. Functional analysis demonstrates loss-of-function of the MCT8 transporter. Furthermore, our results indicate that the function of the S290F mutant is dependent on cell context. Comparison of the S290F and S290A mutants indicates that it is not the loss of Ser but its substitution with Phe, which leads to S290F dysfunction.

    British by birth Allan Cyril Brooks (1869-1946) emigrated to Canada in the 1880s, and became one of the most important North American bird illustrators during the first half of the twentieth century. Brooks was one of the leading ornithologists and wildlife collectors of the time; he corresponded extensively with other ornithologists and supplied specimens to many major North American museums. From the 1890s on he hoped to support himself by painting birds and mammals, but this was not possible in Canada at that time and he was forced to turn to American sources for illustration commissions. His work can be compared with that of his contemporary, the leading American bird painter Louis Agassiz Fuertes (1874-1927), and there are striking similarities and differences in their careers. This paper discusses the work of a talented, self-taught wildlife artist working in a North American milieu, his difficulties and successes in a newly developing field, and his quest for Canadian recognition.

  11. Olivine in Martian Meteorite Allan Hills 84001: Evidence for a High-Temperature Origin and Implications for Signs of Life

    1999-01-01

    Olivine from Martian meteorite Allan Hills (ALH) 84001 occurs as clusters within orthopyroxene adjacent to fractures containing disrupted carbonate globules and feldspathic shock glass. The inclusions are irregular in shape and range in size from approx. 40 microns to submicrometer. Some of the inclusions are elongate and boudinage-like. The olivine grains are in sharp contact with the enclosing orthopyroxene and often contain small inclusions of chromite The olivine exhibits a very limited range of composition from Fo(sub 65) to Fo(sub 66) (n = 25). The delta(sup 18)O values of the olivine and orthopyroxene analyzed by ion microprobe range from +4.3 to +5.3% and are indistinguishable from each other within analytical uncertainty. The mineral chemistries, O-isotopic data, and textural relationships indicate that the olivine inclusions were produced at a temperature greater than 800 C. It is unlikely that the olivines formed during the same event that gave rise to the carbonates in ALH 84001, which have more elevated and variable delta(sup 18)O values, and were probably formed from fluids that were not in isotopic equilibrium with the orthopyroxene or olivine The reactions most likely instrumental in the formation of olivine could be either the dehydration of hydrous silicates that formed during carbonate precipitation or the reduction of orthopyroxene and spinel If the olivine was formed by either reaction during a postcarbonate beating event, the implications are profound with regards to the interpretations of McKay et al. Due to the low diffusion rates in carbonates, this rapid, high-temperature event would have resulted in the preservation of the fine-scale carbonate zoning' while partially devolatilizing select carbonate compositions on a submicrometer scale. This may have resulted in the formation of the minute magnetite grains that McKay et al attributed to biogenic activity.

    1991-01-01

    Natural and induced thermoluminescence (TL) data are reported for 12 meteorites recovered from the Allan Hills region of Antarctica by the European field party during the 1988/1989 field season. The samples include one with extremely high natural TL, ALH88035, suggestive of exposure to unusually high radiation doses (i.e., low degrees of shielding), and one, ALH88034, whose low natural TL suggests reheating within the last 100,000 years. The remainder have natural TL values suggestive of terrestrial ages similar to those of other meteorites from Allan Hills. ALH88015 (L6) has induced TL data suggestive of intense shock. TL sensitivities of these meteorites are generally lower than observed falls of their petrologic types, as is also observed for Antarctic meteorites in general. Acid-washing experiments indicate that this is solely the result of terrestrial weathering rather than a nonterrestrial Antarctic-non-Antarctic difference. However, other TL parameters, such as natural TL and induced peak temperature-width, are unchanged by acid washing and are sensitive indicators of a meteorite's metamorphic and recent radiation history.

  11. Balancing between sensitization and repression: the role of opium in the life and art of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Iszáj, Fruzsina; Demetrovics, Zsolt

    2011-01-01

    The creative process contains both conscious and unconscious work. Therefore, artists have to face their unconscious processes and work with emotional material that is difficult to keep under control in the course of artistic creation. Bringing these contents of consciousness to the surface needs special sensitivity and special control functions while working with them. Considering these mechanisms, psychoactive substance can serve a double function in the case of artists. On the one hand, chemical substances may enhance the artists' sensitivity. On the other hand, they can help moderate the hypersensitivity and repress extreme emotions and burdensome contents of consciousness. The authors posit how the use of opiates could have influenced the life and creative work of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

    This article reviews our current understanding on how xenobiotic metabolism and carcinogenesis are influenced by dietary and other factors. A major contributor to this research area was Dr. Allan Conney, and his contributions are highlighted. His studies on the induction of microsomal xenobiotic-metabolizing enzymes led to the characterization of the cytochrome P450 enzymes, which catalyze the metabolism of drugs, endogenous substrates, carcinogens and many other xenobiotics. These processes are influenced by drugs, diet, and other environmental factors. These studies provided the molecular basis for drug-drug, diet-drug, and herb-drug interactions. The elucidation of the metabolic activation of chemicals to their ultimate carcinogenic forms enables us to understand the molecular basis of chemical carcinogenesis. These studies led to many subsequent investigations on dietary approaches for cancer chemoprevention, including blocking of carcinogen activation, enhancing carcinogen detoxification, and influencing oncogenic pathways, which were carried out by Dr. Conney and others. The strengths and potential for practical application of these approaches are assessed herein.

    Despite evidence for liquid water at the surface of Mars during the Noachian epoch, the temperature of early aqueous environments has been impossible to establish, raising questions of whether the surface of Mars was ever warmer than today. We address this problem by determining the precipitation temperature of secondary carbonate minerals preserved in the oldest known sample of Mars' crust--the approximately 4.1 billion-year-old meteorite Allan Hills 84001 (ALH84001). The formation environment of these carbonates, which are constrained to be slightly younger than the crystallization age of the rock (i.e., 3.9 to 4.0 billion years), has been poorly understood, hindering insight into the hydrologic and carbon cycles of earliest Mars. Using "clumped" isotope thermometry we find that the carbonates in ALH84001 precipitated at a temperature of approximately 18 °C, with water and carbon dioxide derived from the ancient Martian atmosphere. Furthermore, covarying carbonate carbon and oxygen isotope ratios are constrained to have formed at constant, low temperatures, pointing to deposition from a gradually evaporating, subsurface water body--likely a shallow aquifer (meters to tens of meters below the surface). Despite the mild temperatures, the apparently ephemeral nature of water in this environment leaves open the question of its habitability.

      In view of the reverse styles between Ralph Waldo Emerson and Edgar Allan Poe in Ameri-can literary history of 19th century, comparative analyses were made to analyze the literary thoughts they each preached and practiced in their works. Findings show that Emerson represented the mainstream of American literature history, while Poe went against the tradition and the trend of the times. Therefore, Poe was refused by the society of his times. However, both Emerson and Poe’s thoughts, which play a vital role in American history, have greatly contributed to the development of American literature.%  针对19世纪美国文学史上出现的爱默生与爱伦·坡之间的逆向现象,采用比较分析的研究方法,分析了他们各自所倡导和践行的文艺思想。研究发现:爱默生的思想代表美国文化发展的主流方向,而坡的思想则反传统、反潮流,为当时的社会所不容。但是,他们的文学思想都在美国文学史上占有极其重要的地位,推动了美国文学的发展。

In a word the horor fictions have been taken as an imaginary solution to his identity seeking in real life : to destroy the Other .

    Full Text Available Gjennom uminnelige tider har mennesket vært fascinert av havet. I en rekke skapelsesmyter fremstår gjerne havet som en positiv størrelse, en pulserende og livgivende urtidsstrøm. Men ved siden av å være en raus kilde til liv, er havet også nært forbundet med undergang og død,forlis og drukning. Få havstykker har som den beryktede Moskenesstraumen fått denne havets dobbelthet knyttet til seg - på den ene siden verdens største barselseng, på den annen side dødens grusomme svelg. Kanskje med unntak av Bermuda-trianglet i Sargassohavet, stedet hvor skip, og etter hvert også fly, angivelig skal ha forsvunnet sporløst i årevis, er det neppe noe havområde i verden som opp gjennom århundrene er blitt beskrevet og illustrert i tilsvarende grad som Moskenesstraumen. I denne artikkelen skal jeg rette fokus mot tre av de mange som, på høyst forskjellig vis, har latt seg fascinere og inspirere av Moskenesstraumen, nemlig Petter Dass, Edgar Allan Poeog Jules Verne.

    Mutations in the thyroid monocarboxylate transporter 8 gene (MCT8/SLC16A2) have been reported to result in X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) in patients with clinical features of the Allan-Herndon-Dudley syndrome (AHDS). We performed MCT8 mutation analysis including 13 XLMR families with LOD scores >2.0, 401 male MR sibships and 47 sporadic male patients with AHDS-like clinical features. One nonsense mutation (c.629insA) and two missense changes (c.1A>T and c.1673G>A) were identified. Consistent with previous reports on MCT8 missense changes, the patient with c.1673G>A showed elevated serum T3 level. The c.1A>T change in another patient affects a putative translation start codon, but the same change was present in his healthy brother. In addition normal serum T3 levels were present, suggesting that the c.1A>T (NM_006517) variation is not responsible for the MR phenotype but indicates that MCT8 translation likely starts with a methionine at position p.75. Moreover, we characterized a de novo translocation t(X;9)(q13.2;p24) in a female patient with full blown AHDS clinical features including elevated serum T3 levels. The MCT8 gene was disrupted at the X-breakpoint. A complete loss of MCT8 expression was observed in a fibroblast cell-line derived from this patient because of unfavorable nonrandom X-inactivation. Taken together, these data indicate that MCT8 mutations are not common in non-AHDS MR patients yet they support that elevated serum T3 levels can be indicative for AHDS and that AHDS clinical features can be present in female MCT8 mutation carriers whenever there is unfavorable nonrandom X-inactivation.

    In order to study the dynamic characteristics of a fiber-optic gyroscope, it was proposed that the dynamic error which had been obtained by testing a fiber-optic gyroscope be analyzed by dynamic Allan variance. According to the principle of window function in the dynamic Allan variance method, the analysis results of the dynamic error were discussed under the different window length conditions. Furthermore, a kind of single sway movement and two kinds of composite sway movement were analyzed by the dynamic Allan variance method and their results were provided. There was fluctuating variation of variance in the analysis figures, by which the various non-stationary factors in the dynamic error such as mutation and periodic variation were accurately reflected, and the different sway states hidden in the dynamic errors were clearly identified. Both the theoretical analysis and experimental results indicate that the dynamic Allan variance method is very applicable for analyzing the dynamic characteristics of a fiber-optic gyroscope.%为了研究光纤陀螺的动态特性,提出采用动态Allan方差法对光纤陀螺测试得到的动态误差进行分析.根据动态Allan方差法中窗函数的原理,讨论了不同窗口长度对动态误差分析结果的影响.并且,提供了单一摇摆运动和两种复合摇摆运动的分析结果.从分析图中方差的起伏变化可以看出,动态Allan方差法可以准确地反映动态误差里的突变和周期性变化等非稳定性因素,能够清晰地辨识出隐藏在动态误差里的不同摇摆状态.由理论分析和实验结果可知,动态Al-lan方差法对光纤陀螺的动态特性分析是非常适用的.

    国内学术界对于爱伦・坡的文学创作与南方意识以及奴隶制的关系鲜有论及。实际上,爱伦・坡承应南方主流意识形态,与南方拥奴文学的基本思想保持一致。他赞许对奴隶制的美化,拥护并赞美所谓“和谐主奴关系”。其作品通过对奴隶制的隐喻性处理探讨了压迫与被压迫的关系,警告奴隶反抗和秩序失衡的可怕后果,表达了对废奴主义和奴隶革命的恐惧和担忧。爱伦・坡的作品具有南方文人的地域性本色,体现了他的南方意识,也反映了他对奴隶制等政治问题的思考,在南方地方意识渐趋形成的过程中,以自己的文学创作参与并丰富了这一进程。%Scholars in China usually pay little attention to the relationship between Allan Poe’s cultural creation and his southern consciousness and slavery . In fact , Poe agrees to the mainstream ideology in the South and has a similar idea with Southern proslavery literature . He praises the sweet portrayal about the slavery system and advocates harmonious relationship between masters and slaves . Through his metaphorically dealing with the slavery system , his works studies the relationship between the exploited and the exploiter , gives an alarm against slave revolution and disorder , and presents his worry and dread about the abolitionism and slave revolution . His writings show the regional feature of southern literati , reflect his southern consciousness and demonstrate his thought on slavery and other political problems . In the gradually forming process of the southern consciousness , he anticipates in and enriches the process with his literary creation .

    自20世纪初,爱伦.坡便开始了其在中国的文学旅行,尤其是"五四"运动以后,他的文学作品对中国现代文学产生了不小的影响。新时期对坡的接受以改革开放为地标,无论在研究的广度和深度上均有所突破,但是,总体看来,国内的爱伦.坡批评在方法论、研究视角以及历史文化意识上均明显滞后,具体存在三类问题:一是见树不见林,缺乏"整体细读"观念;二是建立在"印象主义"价值评判基础之上的主观臆断;三是观念陈旧,机械套用文类规约。本文还通过简要对比国内外爱伦.坡批评实践指出,坡在当下中国的接受过程中最为凸出的弊病在于"认知的缺失",也即过多关注"诗艺"层面上的研究而很少从社会学批评的视角去考察爱伦.坡文学作品中所传达出的多重认知信息。%Since early 20th century,Edgar Allan Poe has started his literary journey in China.His literary products,not least in the wake of the May Fourth Movement,have left a great influence upon China's modern literature.Poe's reception in the new era,with China's reform and opening up as its landmark,has achieved a remarkable breakthrough either in width or in depth.Even so,the domestic Poe criticism is still dramatically lagging behind in its methodology,perspective and historio-cultural awareness,more specifically,revealing the following three drawbaks:(1) not seeing the wood for the trees,and hence lacking a "holistic close-reading";(2) subjective assumptions based on "impressionistic" value judgment;(3) outdated conception or mechanistic adoption of generic regulation.This article makes a comparison between domestic Poe scholarship and its counterpart abroad,pointing out that the most conspicuous weakness in Poe's China reception lies in its "cognitive absence",namely,an undue attention paid to Poe's ars poetica in lieu of a sociologically critical perspective

    2012-04-01

    Full Text Available El siglo XIX dio lugar a nuevas formas de subjetividad metropolitana que tuvieron en el cuento "El hombre de la multitud", de Edgar Allan Poe, un tratamiento excepcional. Es innegable la relevancia de este relato al interior de su obra, así como su aporte al desarrollo del género narrativo. Sin embargo, el cuento de Poe puede ser considerado, a su vez, como una fuente de notable influencia en la redefinición del concepto de modernidad que Baudelaire plasmará en su obra "El pintor de la vida moderna". Al examinar el personaje anónimo de "El hombre de la multitud" y la singularidad del Sr. G, pintor que da fundamento a la crítica de la tradición pictórica de costumbres, quedará en evidencia como los principales argumentos de Baudelaire sobre el arte y las nuevas formas de habitar la ciudad moderna encuentran en el relato de Poe una significativa fuente de inspiración.The 19th century gave rise to new forms of metropolitan subjectivity with an exceptional treatment in EdgarAllan Poe's tale "TheMan of the Crowd". The relevance of this short story into his work is undeniable, as well as its contribution to the development of the narrative genre. However, Poe's story can be considered as a source of considerable influence in the redefinition of the concept of modernity, that Baudelaire will express in his work "The Painter of Modern Life". In examining the anonymous character of "The Man of the Crowd" and the singularity of Mr. G, the painter who gives substance to the criticism of the pictorial tradition of customs, it grows evident how Baudelaire's main arguments on art and the new ways of life in the modern city find in Poe's short story a significant source of inspiration

      埃德加·艾伦·坡(Edgar Allan Poe)是十九世纪英国著名小说家,被誉为“侦探小说之父”。他在自己作品中采用的一些写作策略和叙事方式,被称为“爱伦坡模式”,对后世影响深远。比如:业余侦探、密室案件、分析解谜、现场描写以及话语平实。G该文拟对以上模式分析解读。%  Being regarded as the father of detective fiction, Edgar Allan Poe used many useful means which are conducive to the formation of detective fiction, a subgenre of fiction. Such as, the amateur detective, the locked-room cases, the approaches of ana⁃lyzing mystery, the ways of describing killing scenes, and the usage of plain words and lots of conversations. These means, called Allan Poe’s Mode, are followed by many authors afterwards. Poe himself has made great contribution to such subgenre of fiction.

  12. Narrative Art in The Masque of the Red Death by Allan Poe%爱伦·坡《红死魔的面具》的叙事艺术

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2012-01-01

    爱伦·坡在《红死魔的面具》中表达主题与形式对应,是传统情节的奇异颠倒。小说形式可视为信息量积累过程,标题显示主客观间的矛盾。创造与毁灭,生与死象征两极。小说中悲哀的气氛愈来愈深沉,而浓重地全然笼罩着读者。《红死魔的面具》是专制统治者自身的“判决书”。%In The Masque of the Red Death, Allan Poe expresses the idea that its theme corresponds to its form, which is a strange inversion of the traditional plot. Its form can be considered as a process of accumulating the amount of information, and its title shows a contradiction between the subject and the object. Creation and destruction, life and death symbolize the two extremes, between which readers are heavily and completely enveloped in an atmosphere of stronger and deeper sorrow. The Masque of the Red Death is a notice of death sentence for absolute rulers themselves.

    2012-01-01

    爱伦·坡在诗歌中着力刻画死亡和黑暗,力图在丑恶中发现美,唤醒人们在污浊的物质世界中对美的渴望,并通过文字来实现美的永恒以及表达对生命的热爱。透过描写美女的死亡,爱伦·坡实践了其“为诗歌而诗歌”的美学取向,塑造了美的极致“天国之美”,以正视死亡的方式肯定了生命的可贵。%By portraying death and darkness in poems, Allan Poe aims at discovering beauty in death and awakening people's thirst for beauty in the filthy material world. He tries to realize eternal beauty and express his love for life in writing. Poe successfully puts his aesthetic principle "poetry for poetry's sake" into practice through his depicting beautiful women's deaths in poems and accomplishes supreme beauty "beauty in the heaven". Meanwhile, life is highly affirmed by means of facing death boldly.

  15. 动态Allan方差改进算法及其在FOG启动信号分析中的应用%Improvement algorithm of dynamic Allan variance and its application in analysis of FOG start-up signal

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2016-01-01

    The classical dynamic Allan variance(DAVAR) can describe the non-stationary of random error of fiber optical gyroscope(FOG) effectively. However, the method has defects such as poor confidence on the estimation of long-term -values due to the reduced amount of data captured by the fixed length windows. Besides, the method is difficult to make a satisfactory tradeoff between dynamic tracking capabilities and variance reduction. An improved DAVAR algorithm based on kurtosis and data extension was proposed to solve the problems. Firstly, the kurtosis of data inside the windows was introduced as characterization of signal's instantaneous non-stationary, and the window length function which was utilized to truncate the signal was built by taken kurtosis as variables, the function can make window length change with the non-stationary of the signal automatically. Secondly, the random error of FOG was truncated with the function. Then the data in the windows were extended by the total variance method to improve the confidence. At last the Allan variance of extended data was computed and arranged by three-dimensional. The measured data of FOG start-up signal was analyzed with the proposed algorithm and DAVAR. The results show that the proposed algorithm is an effective way to characterize non-stationary of FOG and can also obtain a lower estimation error at long-term -values.%针对动态Allan方差运用固定长度的分析窗截取信号导致样本数据量减少,长相关时间下方差估计值置信度降低,首先,针对动态信号跟踪能力与置信度的提高不能兼顾的问题提出了一种改进算法。引入截断窗内峭度值作为表征信号短时稳定度的参数,并建立以峭度为变量的窗宽函数,该函数可以使截断窗长随着信号的平稳程度自动变化。其次,再用窗宽自适应的滑动窗分段截取陀螺随机误差,分别对每个截断窗内样本进行总方差计算以增加方差估计的自由度

    作为"超验主义"的代言人,爱默生代表美国文学发展的主流方向,而同属于19世纪浪漫主义文学家的爱伦.坡则是逆主流的另一走向。爱默生重思想,认为真正的诗歌和艺术应该能陶冶人的情操,他主张文以载道,而且他对未来充满希望,认为个人的发展潜力是无限的。但是天才爱伦.坡却反对当时盛行的文艺说教,主张纯艺术,他崇尚"唯美主义"和"效果统一"的创作理论,而且爱伦.坡预见了被乐观主义者们所忽视的20世纪现代人所遭遇的心理危机。%Ralph Waldo Emerson,the spokesman of "transcendentalism",represents the mainstream in the history of American literature,while Edgar Allan Poe,the romantic writer of the same period,goes against the trend of the times.Emerson places emphasis on ideas,believing that real poetry and art should cultivate man's sentiment.He advocates that writings are for conveying truth and meanwhile his cheerful optimism made him firmly believe that the personal developed potentiality is infinite.However,as a peculiar genius,Poe argues against the then prevailing didactic literature and maintains pure art.He is in favor of "aestheticism" and "unity of effect".Furthermore,Poe anticipates the psychological crisis ignored by optimists and suffered by modern man in 20th century.

  17. A Survey of the Chinese Translations of Edgar Allan Poe' s Novels between 1905 and 1949%近现代中国的爱伦·坡小说汉译史研究

    2011-01-01

    Edgar Allan Poe was a famous poet, novelist and literary critic in the 19th -century America, whose works have been influ- eneing the world very much. It was in 1905 that Chinese translators began to translate Poe' s novels into Chinese, but soon the number of the Chinese translations of his novels increased greatly. It is found that only a few Chinese translators published their Chinese translations of at least two Poe' s novels, and few of Poe' s novels attracted Chinese translators' continuous interest.%爱伦·坡是19世纪美国著名作家,他在美国乃至世界文学史上占有重要的地位,其作品在世界各国广为传播、译介。文章发现,从1905年起,近现代中国对爱伦·坡小说作品的译介从无到有、从少到多,到二十世纪二、三十年代达到巅峰,至四十年代开始减少;近现代中国的爱伦·坡小说译介队伍极为分散,仅有少数译者将多篇爱伦·坡小说译成中文;多数爱伦·坡小说未能引起中国译者的持续兴趣,仅有少数被一译再译,显示出极强的生命力。

    埃德加·爱伦·坡是西方哥特文学创作的巅峰,他的作品和创作理论对后世的文学发展产生了巨大的影响;蒲松龄是中国古代志怪传奇文学的集大成者,他的代表作《聊斋志异》也具有广泛的世界影响。作为东、西方惊悚小说作家中的“双璧”,他们两人的相似之处不仅仅表现在热衷于创作具有惊恐特征的小说题材方面,而且体现在二人旨在追求作品强烈艺术效果的叙事艺术上。他们通过精心的情节设计,出色的意境营造,和强化故事可信度等手段,加之高超的语言表达技巧,使各自的作品展现出震撼读者心灵的艺术效果。%Edgar Allan Poe, as the summit of western gothic literature, had great inlfuence on the literary development after him; Pu Songling, as a master of ancient Chinese mysterious stories, produced a worldwide inlfuence as well. As the best writers of ifction of horror of the world, they had shown striking similarity, in addition to the choice of subjects, the emphasis on their works’ artistic effect that is achieved through their similar means of narration such as the careful design of plots, the remarkable depiction of images, the trick to win trust from the readers, and the skillful use of languages.

  3. The Comparison and Contrast of Supernatural Description in Poems of Li Shang-yin and Edgar Allan Poe%李商隐与爱伦·坡诗歌中超自然描写之比较

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2015-01-01

    During the process of the international dissemination of Chinese poems in Tang dynasty, Li Shang-yin, a famous poet in Late-Tang dynasty, attracts heated attention from readers and critics at home and abroad. From the perspective of comparative literature, this paper presents parallel research into Li Shang-yin and Edgar Allan Poe on the common ground of supernatural description. It elaborates on the mental causes, characteristics, and functions of supernatural description in the two writers’ writings along with the analysis of social, economic, and cultural differences between Chinese and Western, and explores the complicated relationship of similarities as well as differences among both writers’ poems by the bridge of supernatural description, which has a positive significance in pursuing the common disciplines and aesthetic essence of world literature and advancing the international dissemination of Chinese classical literature.%晚唐诗人李商隐在中国唐诗的海外传播进程中,以其独特的魅力受到了广大读者与批评者的青睐。本文在中西比较文学的视阈下,对李商隐与美国诗人爱伦·坡以他们诗歌中的超自然描写这一共通的文学现象为切入点,展开平行研究,以超自然描写的心理形成原因、特点、功用等诸方面为经,以中西社会经济文化差异为纬,对二者的超自然描写进行深入探究,揭示出二者在超自然描写上同中有异、异中有同的复杂关系,对于寻求世界文学的共同规律和美学本质,推动中国古典文学的海外传播,均具有积极重要的意义与启示。

    张梦秋; 冯茜

    2012-01-01

    《黑猫》是美国作家埃德加·爱伦·坡(EdgarAllanPoe)创作的一篇惊悚心理小说,采用第一人称叙事,所讲述的事件折射出了小说主人公心理和行为上的畸形变态。因为叙述者的人格与隐合作者的道德价值观相背离,所以小说的主人公。即叙述者成为了一个“不可靠叙述者”。同时作者也运用了反讽与夸张的写作手法增强了小说叙述者的不可靠性,如此精心的安排,使得小说收到了很好的艺术效果。%The Black Cat is a psychological thriller written by American writer, Edgar Allan Poe. This thriller uses the first person narration strategy and tells the incidents reflecting the protagonist's psychological and behavioral abnormality. Because the narrator's personality deviates from the implied author's moral values, the protagonist of the novel, the narrator becomes an "unreiiable narrator". Meanwhile, the author also uses the techniques of irony and exaggeration to enhance the narrator's unreliability. Such careful arrangement makes the novel receive good artistic effect.

    怪诞手法在美国文学中极为常见。处于不同时代的三位作家爱伦.坡、麦尔维尔和安德森均娴熟地使用了怪诞描写,且各具特色。爱伦.坡着力塑造一个怪诞与恐怖交织的畸形世界,麦尔维尔用怪诞手法来凸现人类理性的有限和人性的复杂,安德森笔下的怪诞人物则是集"扭曲"与"甜美"为一身、在工业化进程中无所适从的梦想者。这三位作家通过怪诞描写,深入地剖析了人性的丰富性和复杂性,探讨了人与人、人与社会、人与自然之间的错综复杂的关系,给两个世纪以来的众多读者留下了深刻的启迪。%The grotesque is a technique commonly used in American literature.Living in different periods,Allan Poe,Melville and Anderson skillfully employ the grotesque in their works and in distinctive ways.Allan Poe tries to depict a grotesque world of terror and mystery;Melville reveals the limitedness of reason and complexity of human nature by means of grotesque characters;Anderson portrays grotesques as "twisted" but "sweet" dreamers alienated in the reality.Adopting the grotesque,the three writers explore the diversity and complexity of human nature,probe into the complicated relations among man,society and nature,and provide insights with readers of the past two centuries.

    2015-01-01

    The special pattern of“using a corpse to resurrect a dead soul”often occurs in Pu Songling's and Edgar Allan Poe's novels. Descriptions on the soul and body as well as the relation of the two are different. Under the pen of Pu Songling,soul has a strong tendency of personality,and the relationship between soul and body is very flexible. At the same time,Chinese Ancients' soul belief, Buddhist samsara and Taoists' immortal thoughts also played a significant role for Pu Songling's description of“using a corpse to resurrect a dead soul”stories. With the phantom nature,souls under Pu Songling's pen have great terror and strong destructive power. Meanwhile,Edgar Allan Poe's idea of soul and body is not equal to the great influence of Christian concept of soul and body,the ancient Greeks view of soul and body and the German classical philosophy———especially the identity problem. In addition to the obvious differences above,the-re are great similarities in aspects of Pu Songling's and Edgar Allan Poe's des-cription of“using a corpse to resurrect a dead soul”of the heroine's appearance, the memory of previous life etc.%蒲松龄与爱伦·坡在其小说中都涉及到“借尸还魂”这一特殊模式。他们对灵魂与肉体以及二者之间关系的描述各有不同。蒲松龄笔下的灵魂具有强烈的人格化倾向,灵魂与肉体之间的关系也非常灵活多变。中国古人的灵魂信仰、佛教的轮回观以及道家的长生思想都对蒲松龄描写“借尸还魂”故事产生了重要影响。爱伦·坡笔下的灵魂具有幽灵的性质,它具有极大的恐怖性与极强的破坏力。爱伦·坡的灵肉观并不完全等同于基督教的灵肉观,古希腊人对灵魂与肉体的看法以及德国古典哲学尤其是哲学中的同一性问题对爱伦·坡产生了重大影响。除了以上诸多明显的差异之外,蒲松龄与爱伦·坡在描写女主角“借尸还魂”后的灵肉样貌、前世

    19世纪中期在美国文坛上占主导地位的是以霍桑、爱伦·坡和梅尔维尔为代表的传奇小说。这三位小说家作为其时美国浪漫主义小说高峰的代表,具有各自的叙事特点:如重视在较短的篇幅内产生的情感冲击尤其是恐怖情感、强调作品的诗意特征和象征寓意、关注挖掘人物的心理感受、倾向于表现复杂模糊的意识形象从而超越现实要求的常规等等。这些特征对此后美国小说的进一步发展影响深远。%The mid-19th century was the golden age of the American novel, represented by the legendary novel of Hawthorne, Melville and Allan Poe. Based on the analysis of the narrative theory of them, who are the important representatives of American romantic novelists in the mid-19th century, the present article explores the basic narrative characteristics of American legendary novels in the mid-19th century, such as attaching importance to producing emotional shocks in the short novel, especially fear; stressing poetic characteristics and symbolic meaning of works; focusing on characters psychological feelings; tending to express complex and fuzzy aspects of consciousness, and so on. These characteristics have far-reaching influences on the further development of the later American novel.

    2012-01-01

    埃德加·爱伦·坡的恐怖小说,在颓废、怪诞和阴郁中透出幻觉般深邃的美,引起了世人瞩目。这种恐怖效果的实现,一个主要途径就是大量恐怖意象的使用。这些意象与爱伦·坡自身的经历、个性气质以及当时的文坛主流有关,但郝经过了爱伦·坡独具匠心的艺术创造。众多恐怖意象中,场景意象群、关女意象群、动物意象群占据了主要位置,对这三者的研究可以今读者深刻了解其恐怖小说的内涵和魅力。%Edgar Allan Poe's horror fictions are well-known for a profound beauty of decadence, grotesqueness and gloominess. In order to achieve horrible effects, Poe uses an important technique --the selection of numerous horrible images, which has much to do with Poe's experiences, idiosyncrasies and the literary mainstream of the time. But these images are all recreated by Poe's original art. The connotation and artistic charm of Poe's horror fictions can be deeply understood from three main groups of images, which are groups of scene image, groups of beauty image, and groups of animal image.

In the novels, the heroines are often look like ordinary people but deep in heart are hysterical, Poe's Novels imply the profound moral meaning which improved the theme of the novel and the changes of the focus, all improve the readability and thoughts of the novels.%爱伦·坡的哥特小说《黑猫》和《泄密的心》在继承了英国哥特小说的基础上进行了大胆的创新,使哥特式小说的美学内涵扩展到了一个新的高度:在坡的小说中,由于叙事视角的变化,使作品在更多的层面上呈现出情节的丰富和人物的多变;对纠缠于极端矛盾中的人物内心的深层挖掘,又使作品专注于对心理状态和心智之间的相互转变的探索;在达到一种"效果或印象的统一"的同时,更使作品隐含着深刻的道德寓意。

    Despite his achievements in literary production,American writer Edgar Allan Poe was frequently misunderstood by critics.For instance,he has been accused of having no concern for social realities. Meanwhile,his “tales of ratiocination”are simply considered a means of entertainment.However,the present study reveals that Poe has exposed a series of social problems in these “tales of ratiocination”such as the good-and-evil contention,inefficiency of the American judicial system,unfaithfulness of newspapers and hypocrisy in human nature,which,supported by the historical data provided,are actually real social problems of the American society in Poe’s day.Thus,Poe’s social value is evident.%美国作家埃德加·爱伦·坡才华卓著,却屡遭误解,其中很重要的一点就是被指缺乏对现实社会的关注。其首创的“推理小说”也仅仅被认为是坡用以娱乐大众的一种谋生手段。而文章的研究发现,在这些“推理小说”中,作家在呈现引人入胜的故事情节的同时也揭露了一系列深刻的社会问题,包括以侦探和罪犯为代表的社会善恶势力之争、司法制度的无效低能、报纸的背离诚信以及人性的虚伪,文章还通过史料分析证明了这些问题的呈现正是作家所生活的19世纪上半叶美国社会的写照,体现了作家的社会意识。

    Samuel Pozzi was a major figure in the early development of modern gynaecological surgery. His textbook, A Treatise on Gynaecology, published in French in 1890 and rapidly translated into five other languages, was the first internationally acclaimed text integrating modern principles of anaesthesia, antisepsis, diagnosis, surgical technique and postoperative care, and in later editions remained a standard reference up to the 1930s. He was the author of more than 400 papers on gynaecological and general abdominal surgery and his technical expertise drew surgeons from all over the world to his theatre in the Hospital Broca, in one of the poorer parts of Paris. He was equally successful in several professional fields apart from medicine. However, his name is now little known in the English-speaking world. This short biography aims to re-introduce Pozzi to readers of English.

    In the last 25 years, the continuous evolution in the design of prostheses for individuals with transfemoral and transtibial amputations has been remarkable. Mirroring this development is the dependency and expectancy of the prosthesis technology by the athletes, coaches and other personnel involved in creating Paralympians of today and the future. Össur is recognised as a leader in designing innovative prosthetic products that have contributed worldwide to developing leading Paralympians. The opening section of this article presents an overview of the new Össur products for 2012. Discussion is also focussed on how Össur's high-function prosthetic products are integrated into an athlete's training regime. With involvement of the clinical team discussion is also expanded to recognise the important contribution coaching staff has on optimising performance of a Paralympian's training regime. The dialogue continues with a viewpoint on whether Oscar Pistorius, the face of Össur who wears Flex-Foot Cheetah blades, should participate in the Olympics and Paralympics. While the conclusion of this article may leave more questions than answers, the technology and products offered by Össur provide for a credible foundation and preparation for future challenges beyond the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Este ensaio explora a importância do espiritismo de Kardec para os princípios de Fernando Ortiz e para seu longo, por vezes tortuoso, inquérito que o leva à noção de "transculturação". Em seus anos de formação, Ortiz foi profundamente influenciado por Lombroso, mas também, como tantos outros escritores e intelectuais, por Kardec. Ele publicou ensaios fundamentais sobre o espiritismo, especialmente sobre as implicações da reencarnação para hierarquias espirituais e sociais. A doutrina de Kardec sobre o progresso espiritual da alma permitiu a Ortiz defender um projeto nacional mais inclusivo. O kardecismo também forneceu metáforas que correm como um fio por seus trabalhos mais importantes sobre as culturas africanas em Cuba, e também por sua poética. A "transmigração" das almas, com suas possibilidades de constantes novos princípios, permitiu a Ortiz introduzir um elemento espiritual e político na ideia de largo alcance que é a transculturação.This essay explores the importance of Kardec's Spiritism in Fernando Ortiz's beginnings and in his long, often roundabout, inquiry leading to the notion of "transculturation". In his formative years Ortiz was deeply influenced by Lombroso but also, like so many other writers and intellectuals, by Kardec. He published fundamental essays on Spiritism, especially on the implications of reincarnation for spiritual and social hierarchies. Kardec's doctrine of the spiritual progress of the soul allowed Ortiz to argue for a more inclusionary national project. Kardecism also provided metaphors that run like a thread through Ortiz's major works on African cultures in Cuba and in his poetics. The "transmigration" of the souls, with its possibilities of endless new beginnnings, enabled Ortiz to introduce a spiritual and political element into the far-ranging idea of transculturation.

    Full Text Available The migration issue is a debatable one not only from a theoretical point of view but from the policy options as well. The progress in explaining various aspects of international migration such as migration strategy, from individual to family strategy, the way of entering the new country, from “chain” to “network migration” and trans-nationality etc. has not always been followed by the most appropriate policy options. Because of political interest, policy makers are more sensitive to the public opinion perception on migration than to the scientific opinions concerning the balance between advantages and disadvantages of migrants’ presence.

  18. Impacts of a fuel oil spill on seagrass meadows in a subtropical port, Gladstone, Australia--the value of long-term marine habitat monitoring in high risk areas.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Taylor, Helen A; Rasheed, Michael A

    2011-01-01

    We used an established seagrass monitoring programme to examine the short and longer-term impacts of an oil spill event on intertidal seagrass meadows. Results for potentially impacted seagrass areas were compared with existing monitoring data and with control seagrass meadows located outside of the oil spill area. Seagrass meadows were not significantly affected by the oil spill. Declines in seagrass biomass and area 1month post-spill were consistent between control and impact meadows. Eight months post-spill, seagrass density and area increased to be within historical ranges. The declines in seagrass meadows were likely attributable to natural seasonal variation and a combination of climatic and anthropogenic impacts. The lack of impact from the oil spill was due to several mitigating factors rather than a lack of toxic effects to seagrasses. The study demonstrates the value of long-term monitoring of critical habitats in high risk areas to effectively assess impacts.

  4. Edgar Allan Poe: the first man to conceive a Newtonian evolving Universe

    CERN Document Server

    Molaro, Paolo

    2015-01-01

    The notion that we live in an evolving universe was established only in the twentieth century with the discovery of the recession of galaxies by Hubble and with the Lemaitre and Friedmann's interpretation in the 1920s. However, the concept of an evolving universe is intrinsically tied to the law of universal gravitation, and it is surprising that it remained unrecognized for more than two centuries. A remarkable exception to this lack of awareness is represented by Poe. In Eureka (1848), the writer developed a conception of an evolving universe following the reasoning that a physical universe cannot be static and nothing can stop stars or galaxies from collapsing on each other. Unfortunately this literary work was, and still is, very little understood both by the literary critics and scientists of the time. We will discuss Poe's cosmological views in their historical scientific context, highlighting the remarkable insights of the writer, such as those dealing with the Olbers paradox, the existence of other ga...

    We report the identification of presolar silicates (~177 ppm), presolar oxides (~11 ppm), and one presolar SiO2 grain in the ALHA 77307 chondrite. Three grains having Si isotopic compositions similar to SiC X and Z grains were also identified, though the mineral phases are unconfirmed. Similar abundances of presolar silicates (~152 ppm) and oxides (~8 ppm) were also uncovered in the primitive CR chondrite QUE 99177, along with 13 presolar SiC grains and one presolar silicon nitride. The O isotopic compositions of the presolar silicates and oxides indicate that most of the grains condensed in low-mass red giant and asymptotic giant branch stars. Interestingly, unlike presolar oxides, few presolar silicate grains have isotopic compositions pointing to low-metallicity, low-mass stars (Group 3). The 18O-rich (Group 4) silicates, along with the few Group 3 silicates that were identified, likely have origins in supernova outflows. This is supported by their O and Si isotopic compositions.

    1985-05-01

    To investigate depth dependences of cosmic-ray-induced effects in the Antarctic H4 chondrite ALPHA 78084, measurements of Al-26, Mn-53, noble gases, and cosmic-ray tracks are performed on documented samples. The Al-26 activities are found to vary between 224 and 246 dpm/kg Si(equ), while Mn-53 activities range from 299 to 359 dpm/kg Fe. Relatively high Ne-22/Ne-21 ratios are measured in all samples, the lowest ratio observed is 1.145. Ablation depths between 1.3 and 6.5 cm are indicated by the track data, thus leading to a preatmospheric mass of about 40 kg, and a 66 percent ablation loss. It is shown that the calculation of preatmospheric size and shielding from measured Ne-22/Ne-21 ratios, using the semi-empirical curves of Bhandari and Potdar (1982), are in agreement with those obtained from track measurements. Both cosmic-ray track and noble-gas data favor a preatmospheric radius of (14 + or - 1) cm.

    The complexity and pace of technology, combined with the strategic importance of technology, has created a dilemma for most organisations. The requirement is to be able to take advantage• of the latest technology and state-of-the-art practices. So, instead of trying to be experts in both their core business and technology, executives focus their attention on the core business and rely on others to provide the technology expertise.

    This paper describes the development and implementation of a hand exercise intervention for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as part of a large multi-centred randomised controlled trial in a U.K. National Health Service (NHS) setting. Participants are eligible if diagnosed with RA according to American College of Rheumatology criteria, have a history of disease activity, functional deficit or impairment in the hand and/or wrist, and have been on a stable medication regime for at least 3 months. The intervention development was informed by the current evidence base, published guidelines, clinician and expert opinion, and a pilot study. The exercise programme targets known, potentially modifiable physical impairments of the hand with 5 exercise sessions and a home exercise component over a 12 week period. The intervention will be provided to 240 participants along with usual care. A further 240 will receive usual care only as part of the control arm. Specific details of the treatments delivered are described. [ISRCTN no: 89936343].

    The identification of biogenic features altered by diagenesis or mineralization is important in determining whether specific features in terrestrial rocks and in meteorites may have a biogenic origin. Unfortunately, few studies have addressed the formation of biogenic features in igneous rocks, which may be important to these phenomena, including the controversy over possible biogenic features in basaltic martian meteorite ALH84001. To explore the presence of biogenic features in igneous rocks, we examined microcosms growing in basaltic small-scale experimental growth chambers or microcosms. Microbial communities were harvested from aquifers of the Columbia River Basalt (CRB) group and grown in a microcosm containing unweathered basalt chips and groundwater (technique described in. These microcosms simulated natural growth conditions in the deep subsurface of the CRB, which should be a good terrestrial analog for any putative martian subsurface ecosystem that may have once included ALH84001. Here we present new size measurements and photomicrographs comparing the putative martian fossils to biogenic material in the CRB microcosms. The range of size and shapes of the biogenic features on the CRB microcosm chips overlaps with and is similar to those on ALH84001 chips. Although this present work does not provide evidence for the biogenicity of ALH84001 features, we believe that, based on criteria of size, shape, and general morphology, a biogenic interpretation for the ALH84001 features remains plausible.

    2011-04-01

    Full Text Available Article aims to find variety of interpretations on Eldorado poem, following the readers’ internal factors, such as societal norms, personal values and past experiences influence the interpretations. Data generated for this study are acquired through field research, in which questionnaires are used as data collecting instrument. The respondents are from third semester students of English Literature in Bina Nusantara University. The finding shows that interpretations of Eldorado include 44% ideas about failure, 24% ideas about perseverance, and 25.33% ideas about taking a journey. In comparison to Eldorado’s more neutral interpretation, it could be said that more respondents prefer to discuss the poem as the journey of life. It can be concluded that different societal norms, personal values and past experiences cause different kinds of interpretations, in which past experience becomes the most influential factor.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Maria Antónia Lima

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available In our times, one of the most prevailing forms of terror is certainly the psychological terror. In the history of literature and cinema, it’s impossible to forget some very widely known characters called psychos, especially those created by Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Bloch, Stephen King, Bret Easton Ellis, Sarah Kane and Patrick McGrath. Usually, they are haunted not only by their own private memories, but also by a literary memory that associates them to a common heritage, as if each psychotic character belonged to a very old gothic family, in which every member had been cursed to inherit the disease of his ancestors or the sins of his fathers. Haunted by images of their past, that recurrently return to the present, these psychos defy the barriers of time and all the traditional distinctions between reality and imagination, because one can never be sure if the stories are really about murders or about victims of their very diseased minds. Uncertainties and doubts disturb the reader as they also disturb the main character in search of a lost identity. Keywords: Psychos, Terror, Haunting Memories, Literary Heritage, Poe.

    生存、死亡、复活以及"提前埋葬",一直是爱伦·坡怪诞小说高度关注的主题.在这些文本中,生存和死亡都被描述得极为痛苦、恐怖.由此可以发现坡与叔本华的联系.坡对叔本华的"意志理论"或许存在某种误读,但是他的许多作品都充分体现出与叔本华悲现主义人生哲学及其悲剧理念的契合和感悟,从而深刻地展示了个体生命的生存困惑与焦虑,具有令人心悸的悲剧效应.

    BDS观测数据噪声的辨识对提高BDS定位精度具有非常重要的意义,大量研究表明GPS非差随机模型并不服从高斯白噪声分布,北斗系统由于其星座和频率的多样性,噪声特征将明显不同于GPS.本文利用iGMAS大量高频实测数据,通过Allan方差分析,对比研究了BDS的噪声成分与其参数.试验结果表明,BDS非差噪声成分与GPS相同,主要为白噪声与一阶马尔科夫过程噪声.但是具体参数不同.BDS相位白噪声为2.50 mm,大于GPS的2.33 mm;GM过程噪声为2.38 mm·s-1/2,小于GPS的4.43 mm·s-1/2,相关时间为77.07 s,大于GPS的55.51s.大量试验数据表明BDS的噪声参数聚集程度大于GPS,对环境的敏感程度低,噪声相关时间更长,过程噪声更小,这在北斗精密定位中还有待精化.
