    2005-01-01

    Der Begriff der Gewerbsmässigkeit hat im schweizerischen Luftrecht eine grosse Bedeutung. Werden gewerbsmässige Flüge ohne die entsprechenden Bewilligungen und Voraussetzungen durchgeführt, so resultieren gravierende zivilrechtliche, strafrechtliche und administrative Konsequenzen. In den massgebenden internationalen Luftfahrtabkommen findet sich keine Definition der Gewerbsmässigkeit, dies wird den einzelnen Staaten überlassen.

    Full Text Available Unser Beitrag fokussiert auf ein sprachliches Phänomen in der gegenwärtigen Gesellschaft in Deutschland, das auch im kulturellen Bereich Folgen hat: die sogenannte „Kanak Sprak“. In ihrer Beziehung zur deutschen Sprache wäre die Kanak Sprak, also die Sprache des Kanaken, ein Ethnolekt, wie Martin Schramm sie in einem Artikel Verhunztes Deutsch oder Sprachkultur? aus dem Jahr 2011 definiert. Nach der Meinung des Journalisten und türkisch-deutschen Schriftstellers Feridun Zaimoğlu wäre Kanake übrigens „ein Etikett, das nach mehr als 30 Jahren Immigrationsgeschichte von Türken nicht nur Schimpfwort ist, sondern auch ein Name, den ‚Gastarbeiterkinder’ der zweiten und vor allem der dritten Generation mit stolzem Trotz führen“ (2007: 9. In diesem Sinne zielt unsere Studie darauf ab, diesen „Untergrund-Kodex“ (2007: 13, wie Feridun Zaimoğlu ihn bezeichnet, in den folgenden Werken von Zaimoğlu zu untersuchen: Kanak Sprak – 24 Mißtöne vom Rande der Gesellschaft (Erstauflage 1995; 2007 und Kopf und Kragen – Kanak-Kultur-Kompendium (Erstauflage 2001; 2006.

In their relationship with the German language reflects the kanak sprak, the language of the kanaks, an “ethnolect”, as Martin Schramm would define it. According to the journalist and Turkish-German author/writer Feridun Zaimoğlu would kanake be defined as “a label that not only is a dirty word for more than 30 years history of immigration of Turks, but also a name that the children of the Gastarbeiter of especially the second and the third generation lead with proud defiance” (2007: 9.

    Wilke, Jürgen

    Nach anfänglichen Schwierigkeiten durch den 1. Weltkrieg erlangte die Deutsche Statistische Gesellschaft (DStatG) unter dem renommierten Statistiker und Vorsitzenden der DStatG, Friedrich Zahn, durch eine Vielzahl von Aktivitäten hohes Ansehen. Es gab Bestrebungen, Statistiker aus allen Arbeitsfeldern der Statistik in die DStatG zu integrieren, wobei die "Mathematische Statistik" nur zögerlich akzeptiert wurde (Konjunkturforschung, Zeitreihenanalyse). Nach der Machtübernahme 1933 durch Adolf Hitler geriet die DStatG in das Fahrwasser nationalsozialistischer Ideologie und Politik (Führerprinzip, Gleichschaltung des Vereinswesens). Damit war eine personelle Umstrukturierung in der DStatG verbunden. Politisch Missliebige und rassisch Verfolgte mussten die DStatG verlassen (Bernstein, Freudenberg, Gumbel u.a.). Unter den Statistikern gab es alle Abstufungen im Verhalten zum Regime von Ablehnung und zwangsweiser Anpassung über bereitwilliges Mitläufertum bis zu bewusster Täterschaft. Besonders die Bevölkerungsstatistik wurde durch die NS- Rassenpolitik auf lange Sicht diskreditiert. Im Rahmen von Wirtschaftsplanung und Aufrüstung wurden neue zukunftsträchtige statistische Modelle (Grünig, Bramstedt, Leisse) entwickelt.

  1. Cosmopolitan sociology and the classical canon: Ferdinand Tönnies and the emergence of global Gesellschaft.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Inglis, David

    2009-12-01

    How relevant are figures from the classical sociological canon for present day efforts to found cosmopolitan forms of sociological thought? According to the critique of Ulrich Beck, the classical sociologists remain far too wedded to nation-state-centred ways of thinking to play an important role in the development of cosmopolitan sociology. This paper argues that such a critique fails to account for the ways in which certain classical sociologists were attuned to the emerging cosmopolitical conditions of their own time, were not wholly wedded to nation-state-based conceptualizations, and thus can function as both groundings of, and inspirations for, cosmopolitan sociological endeavours. The apparently unpromising case of Tönnies is focused on, the paper showing how he outlined an account of how and why a planet-spanning condition of Gesellschaft developed a position which diverges from and counterpoints Marx's analysis of similar phenomena in important ways. The stereotype of Tönnies as an arch-conservative is also dissolved, allowing him to be considered as one of the most important antecedents of contemporary cosmopolitan sociological practice and a canonical figure still relevant for present-day purposes.

  2. Comments to the German society's for radiation protection (Gesellschaft fur Strahlenschutz) proposed principles for radiation protection

    The German Society for Radiation Protection (in German Gesellschaft fur Strahlenschutz) is a separate society for radiation protection in Germany in addition to the leading society named Association of German and Swiss Radiation Protection Specialists (in German Fachverband fur Strahlenschutz). The Society is an international professional society. There are several hundreds members of the German Society for Radiation Protection. The German Society for Radiation Protection is not a member of IRPA (the International Radiation Protection Society). The IRPA member is the Association of German and Swiss Radiation Protection Specialists. According to information given on the web site of the Society for Radiation Protection (www.gfstrahlenschutz.de) the Society was founded in 1990 because in the opinion of the founding members the older professional societies and associations have not adequately considered and implemented the present knowledge of radiation risks and radiation protection. In accordance with its statutes the society pursues besides other aims the best possible protection of humans and the environment from the detrimental action of ionising and non-ionising radiation. The dealing with ionising and non-ionising radiation can according to the Society only be justified on the basis of biological and medical state of the art knowledge

  3. Anatomische Gesellschaft from 1933 to 1950: a professional society under political strain - the Benninghoff papers.

    Hildebrandt, Sabine

    2013-10-01

    The Anatomische Gesellschaft (anatomical society, AG) was founded in Germany in 1886 as an international society and remains the main organizing body of German anatomists to this day. A previous study of the history of the AG during National Socialism (NS) was based on the published proceedings of the AG and drew the preliminary conclusion that the "AG did not follow the path of preemptive obedience toward the new rulers" in contrast to some other professional societies. However, it was noted that archival sources were needed to support this conclusion and to illustrate the decision process within the society. Such sources are now available in the estate papers of Alfred Benninghoff, a leading anatomist at the time. His correspondence supports the previous finding that the AG was able to maintain its international character, thereby enabling it to avoid the active exclusion of "non-Aryan" members. The papers also confirm that the AG did not defend its vulnerable members as valiantly as the official narrative suggests, a fact illustrated in a controversy surrounding Martin Heidenhain. The interactions and conflicts between the leaders of the AG can now be reconstructed, i.e. between the secretary of the AG Heinrich von Eggeling, Benninghoff and Hermann Stieve. The Benninghoff documents also refer to a meeting of a subsection of the AG in November 1942, at which a disturbing radicalization of some anatomists developed. Finally, the papers reflect the political realities for German professionals trying to re-establish their science in a country divided into four occupation zones. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier GmbH.

    This paper traces the formation of the German “Gesellschaft für psychologische Forschung” (“Society for Psychological Research”), whose constitutive branches in Munich and Berlin were originally founded as inlets for alternatives to Wundtian experimental psychology from France and England, that is, experimental researches into hypnotism and alleged supernormal phenomena. By utilizing the career trajectories of Max Dessoir and Albert von Schrenck-Notzing as founding members of the “Gesellschaft,” this paper aims to open up novel perspectives regarding extra-scientific factors involved in historically determining the epistemological and methodological boundaries of nascent psychology in Germany.

  10. Germany needs nuclear power also in the future. Position paper by the Kerntechnische Gesellschaft e.V

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2002-01-01

    The prosperity to date, and the international rank of Germany have been based on the country's leadership in science and technology; nuclear technology has contributed importantly to this achievement. The know-how and the scientific and technical competence in the nuclear field built up over a period of four decades in Germany, and acknowledged worldwide, are highly jeopardized as a result of the current political attitude of the German federal government. The expert competence in many areas of nuclear technology required for current and possible future decisions can be maintained or expanded only if the appropriate boundary conditions are preserved. Consequently, the preservation of competence continues to require intense work on nuclear technology in research and teaching, especially in the areas of safety research, research into repositories, and future reactor concepts, both on a national basis and in international cooperation. The Kerntechnische Gesellschaft therefore requests the next German federal government to embark on an energy policy oriented towards the future and including all economic ecological, and social aspects. An energy policy with a long-term orientation is a precondition for Germany to again become a leading, competent center of high technology industry. Like the World Energy Council, KTG maintains that 'all energy options must be kept open'. (orig.) [de

Autologous Fat Grafting is a long established treatment in plastic surgery and does not differ from other tissue grafts. 2. Mechanical processing of autologous fat does not provide any substantial change tot he tissue. 3. If other treatment methods to enrich progenitor cells of autolous fat i. e. by an enzymatic process have evidence that autologous adipose tissue or cells were substantially changed, classification as a drug could come in question under current german law (application of AMG/ATMP). © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New York.

    1981-08-01

    In August 1979, the German Risk Study was presented to the public by the Federal Minister of Research and Technology. The main contractor to prepare the German Risk Study is the Gesellschaft fuer Reaktorsicherheit (GRS). The objective of the Study is to investigate the collective risk involved in accidents at nuclear power plants. The essential results and statements of the Study are comprised in a Summary submitted to the public in August 1979, too. In September 1979, the 'Bremer Arbeits- und Umweltschutz-Zentrum' ('BAUZ') published a 'Stellungnahme zur 'deutschen Risikostudie' der Gesellschaft fuer Reaktorsicherheit (GRS)' (Review of the German Risk Study of the Gesellschaft fuer Reaktorsicherheit), dealing only with the summary of this study, however. The BAUZ review is extremely critical of the German Risk Study and ends in condemning the peaceful utilization of nuclear energy as well as the competent authorities. The GRS review critique in hand scrutinizes the BAUZ paper according to the run of the text. Deliberately, one has renounced a comment in such cases where the reproaches slip in the political or ideological field. The object of the BAUZ review as well as of the GRS critique is the matter to be investigated, aim and methods of the investigations and the results of the German Risk Study. The revision of the review acknowledges that in some cases the tendency of criticism is justified. Often, however, the critique is only a sharpened repetition of what the GRS itself has identified as restrictions of accuracy and inherent significance of the results. In most items, however, the critique is rejected as to be wrong or not proof. (orig./HP) [de

    Full Text Available Im Jahre 1951 gelangte der größte Teil der Fotosammlung des vormaligen Museums der Gelehrten Estnischen Gesellschaft (GEG ins Estnische Historische Museum, wo er bis heute aufbewahrt wird. Im Artikel ist beschrieben, wie diese Fotosammlung im 19. Jahrhundert zu Stande gekommen ist. Daneben werden die damaligen Fotografen in Tartu vorgestellt.Es ist bekannt, dass erste Wanderfotografen das Gebiet des heutigen Estlands im Jahre 1843 erreichten, erste Nachrichten von Fotografen in Tartu stammen aus dem Jahr 1844. Dennoch hat die GEG erst in der Mitte der 1850er Jahren angefangen, Fotografien oder Lichtbilder gezielt zu sammeln. In den 1850er Jahren sind insgesamt nur drei Fotos aufgenommen worden; und Anfang der 1870er Jahre besaß das Museum der GEG dann nur etwa 30 Fotografien. Von diesen sind von den Tartuer Fotografen selbst mehr als 20 Fotos dem Museum gestiftet worden. Auch in den folgenden Jahrzehnten sind nur einzelne Fotos vom Museum gesammelt worden. Obwohl die Mitglieder der GEG sich mehrfach dafür aussprachen, dass man die lokale Kultur auch fotografisch festhalten sollte, folgten von Seiten der GEG keine bemerkenswerten Unternehmungen in dieser Sache.Heute sind die meisten der im 19. Jahrhundert gesammelten und aus dem Museum der GEG stammenden Fotos im Estnischen Historischen Museum gut erhalten. Insgesamt sind es mehr als 1600 Fotos, die aus dem Museum der GEG ins Estnische Historische Museum übernommen wurden, darunter auch Aufnahmen aus dem 20. Jahrhundert. Den größten Anteil machen Fotos von Lehrkräften der Tartuer Universität aus, so etwa 300 Stück, ca. 20 Fotos gibt es von Tartuer Studenten. An die 300 Aufnahmen zeigen die Stadt Tartu – einzelne Gebäude oder Straßen- und Stadtansichten. Dazu gibt es etwa 50 Fotos von Burgen, 30 Fotos von Kirchen und Aufnahmen von anderen estnischen Städten. Einen größeren Bestand machen die Postkarten aus dem Ende des 19. und Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts aus; drei Fotoalbumen sind

A large program of work has garnered numerous perspectives on the philosophy of person and the phenomenology of otherness, investigating in particular the role of emotions in the formation of person process. The main topic of conference was the Max Scheler’s phenomenology of emotions, which is an important turning point in the philosophy of twentieth century. The formation of ordo amoris, or rather order of feeling, generates the self‐ transcendence of the immediate feeling in virtue, in which the person realizes her singularity. The emotion, therefore, doesn’t remain confined in a state of mind and inner private but acts in the world, creating the emotional breakthrough (emotioneller Durchbruch that makes me exist in a new way in the world, which allows me to act according to my ordo amoris.

The software of the same name is an in-house development. Based on the experiences and wishes of the users, currently, a new application (PubMan which is built upon the eSciDoc framework is introduced within the institutes. eSciDoc is a co-operation with the FIZ Karlsruhe and is funded until 2009 by the BMBF. All applications and services are Open Source and can therefore be re-used and be further developed. Apart from the development and maintenance of technical infrastructures, the Green Road within the MPG is furthered via direct and indirect personal support for scientists during the publication process. In this regard the close exchange between single Max Planck Institutes, the Max Planck Digital Library and other national and international partners plays an important role. With the Berlin Declaration in 2003 and currently in the Priority Initiative “Digital Information” of the Alliance of the German Research Organizations this commitment for Open Access is also politically represented.In this article are introduced and explained both eDoc and PubMan respectively as well as the Open Access Policy of the MPG with a special focus on the activities within the Green Road.

    Our time is marked by a high specialization of the individual, by technical perfection and by rationality in most fields of life. At the same time, however, it is also coined by auxiety, by a general feeling of radical change, of searching and groping. In such an era there are wishes and needs for information beyond one's own necessarily narrow subject field and competence - information on the most urgent problem of our whole civilization. Therefore the University of St. Gallen had organized some lectures. Well-known personalities had been invited as lecturers because of their technical knowledge and far-sightedness, but also for their realism and creativity. The lectures present fundamental findings and impulses which are summarized in this volume.

    The aim is to place GRS in a position to be able to adapt to the changed tasks in the nuclear sector, remain competent in all relevant issues of nuclear safety, and maintain an adequate number of qualified staff in spite of the extremely difficult situation with regard to finding junior nuclear engineers. Key elements of this concept are - an adaptation to the expected medium-term reduction of nuclear tasks by socially acceptable cuts in the number of staff over the coming five years, - a concentration of our own competencies, - partnerships with other capable organisations at home and abroad. The major tasks of GRS will remain to perform safety analyses and assessments in the fields of reactor safety, fuel supply, spent fuel management and disposal as well as to carry out nuclear and final repository safety research.

    1982-01-01

    This paper intends to counter with a demand for systematics the boom of ecological oriented criticism passed on technical science and engineering and on the fact that individual sciences make a subject of engineering. It deals with the theoretical foundations of relationships between technology, society and nature. An interdisciplinary approach attempts to do justice to the multi-dimensionality of engineering and ''technology''. This approach includes the formulation of questions and the findings of social sciences, philosophy, and technology. The object is to determine technology as a form of social practice - a practice which includes the vital adjustment of man to his natural environment as well as the organisation of his social behaviour.

  15. Parliamentary democracy and pluralist society; Parlamentarische Demokratie und pluralistische Gesellschaft

    2010-10-15

    The Federal Republic of Germany is a democracy: The people expresses its political will in general, direct, free, equal and secret elections, in this way appointing its representatives at federal, state and local levels. The persons elected assemble in parliaments, deciding mainly on laws (legislative). Majorities are opposed to minorities in this process, the former constituting and supporting a government while the latter, as the opposition, exercise parliamentary control over the former. The political structure of a parliamentary democracy is matched by society, which continuously forms its political opinions and is able also to express them. In addition, the media exercise both political control and the function of forming public opinion. These personal and societal freedoms of action and expression are effective in a pluralist society not bound by one standard opinion and able to re-form itself continuously. The rights set out in the Basic Law and the structures in place constitute a balanced framework for political and societal reality. In what way this framework is filled depends decisively on political culture in general and on the political style of personal contact in individual cases. The past few months, and their debate about operating life extensions for the nuclear power plants in Germany, can be judged in the light of both the constitutional structure of a parliamentary democracy and the political style and political culture in our pluralist society. Intellectual objectivity has never harmed a society, while a loss of political culture can quickly lead to instabilities and political decisions with negative consequences for the future. (Constitutional) law alone is not always able to direct this development in a positive sense. (orig.)

    Currently the Swiss 'Ordinance on Radiation Protection' and the 'Ordinance about Education and Training in RP' are undergoing a revision process. Concerning responsibilities and obligations as well as the capabilities and skills in RP the new ordinances are supposed to take account on the new EU Basic Safety Standard on the one hand and on the other hand to resume the approved approaches on RP in Switzerland. An overview of the planned content of the revised ordinances will be given in this report. In the Swiss system the education, training and retraining of RPO has a higher priority. Particularly it will be described which groups of persons assume the roles of RPE and therefore the definition of RPE in the new Swiss legislation is needless. (orig.)

    Acting as the regulatory body of the Swiss Confederation, the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate, ENSI, assesses and monitors nuclear facilities in Switzerland. This includes the five nuclear power plants (NPPs), the plant-based interim storage facilities, the Central Interim Storage Facility (ZWILAG) at Wuerenlingen, the nuclear facilities at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), the two universities of Basel and Lausanne, the transport of radioactive materials from and to nuclear facilities and the preparation for a deep geologic repository for radioactive waste. Using inspections, surveillance meetings, reviews and analyses as well as reports from plant licensees, ENSI obtains the required overview of the safety of the nuclear facilities. It maintains its own emergency organisation, which is an integral part of the national emergency structure. The legislative framework at the basis of the activity of ENSI specifies the criteria by which it evaluates the activities and plans of the operators of nuclear facilities. ENSI provides the public with information on particular events and observations relating to nuclear facilities. The five nuclear power plants in Switzerland (Beznau Units 1 und 2, Muehleberg, Goesgen and Leibstadt) were all operated safely in 2010. Last year, there were 39 notifiable events in Switzerland: 4 events affected both Beznau Units, 10 events the Goesgen NPP, 6 the Leibstadt NPP and 13 the Muehleberg NPP and 6 in other facilities. Based on the International Nuclear Event Scale (INES) of 0-7, ENSI rated 38 events as Level 0, and as INES Level 2 the event on 31 August 2010 during maintenance work at the Leibstadt NPP, where a diver was exposed to radiation in excess of the maximum annual exposure rate of 20 mSv. The ZWILAG at Wuerenlingen consists of several interim storage halls, a conditioning plant and the plasma plant (incineration/melting plant). At the end of 2010, the cask storage hall contained 34 transport/storage casks with spent fuel assemblies and vitrified residue packages plus 6 casks with decommissioning waste from the experimental nuclear power plant at Lucens. About 17% of the capacity of the high level waste (HLW) store was in use and about 22% of the intermediate- and low-level (ILW) store capacity. During the year ZWILAG conducted two campaigns to incinerate and melt radioactive waste. ENSI recorded no notifiable events in ZWILAG during 2010. ENSI is also responsible for the surveillance of the nuclear facilities at PSI: the research reactor PROTEUS, the hot laboratory, the collection point for radioactive waste from medicine, industry and research. From the radiological standpoint, decommissioning work at the two research reactors DIORIT and SAPHIR continued correctly. The PROTEUS research reactor was operated in compliance with regulations. There were 2 notifiable incidents at PSI with a relevance to nuclear safety and both were rated as INES Level 0. ENSI recorded no notifiable events at the two research reactors at the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne and the University of Basel. In 2010, the amount of radioactive material released into the environment via waste water and gaseous exhaust from the nuclear power plants, ZWILAG, the PSI and the nuclear facilities at Basel and Lausanne was considerably lower than the limits specified in operating licenses. Analyses showed that the maximum doses, including those for residents in the immediate vicinity of a plant, were less than 1 % of the annual exposure to natural radiation. Several consignments of radioactive waste were returned to Switzerland following reprocessing at La Hague in France. All consignments of fuel assemblies and radioactive waste were transported in accordance with the regulations. In 2008, three companies each submitted a general license application to the Swiss Federal Office of Energy for a new nuclear power plant. After the accident at Fukushima (Japan) in March 2011, the Swiss Federal Council suspended all applications for general licenses for the construction of new nuclear power plants. As part of the Sectoral Plan for a deep geologic repository, the National Cooperative for the Disposal of Radioactive Waste (NAGRA) put forward several possible locations for geologic repositories for ILW and HLW. ENSI concluded that the procedure adopted by NAGRA was transparent and understandable, the geologic references were complete and that each of the proposed locations met the suitability criteria. During 2010, NAGRA continued its research at the Rock Laboratories of Grimsel (crystalline rock) and Mont Terri (Opalinus clay). ENSI conducted an experiment at Mont Terri to determine the rock mechanical behaviour of Opalinus clay and it participated in two other experiments.

These include the five nuclear power plants (Beznau Units 1 and 2, Muehleberg, Goesgen and Leibstadt), the interim storage facilities based at each plant, the Central Interim Storage Facility (Zwilag) at Wuerenlingen together with the nuclear facilities at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), the University of Basel and the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), as well as the transport of radioactive materials and the preparatory work for a deep geological repository for nuclear waste. Using a combination of inspections, regulatory meetings, examinations and analyses together with reports from the licensees of individual facilities, ENSI obtains the required overview of nuclear safety in these facilities. ENSI maintains its own emergency organization. It provides the public with information on particular events and findings in nuclear facilities. ENSI publishes an annual Radiological Protection Report and a Research and Experience Report. Chapters 1 to 4 of this Surveillance Report deal with operational experience, systems technology, radiological protection and management of the 5 Swiss nuclear power plants. Chapter 5 deals with Zwilag. Chapters 6 and 7 are devoted to the nuclear facilities at PSI and the research reactor at EPFL as well as the decommissioned University of Basel’s research reactor. Chapter 8 covers the transport of radioactive materials. The subject of Chapter 9 is the deep geological storage of radioactive waste including work within the framework of the Sectoral Plan. Finally, Chapter 10 deals with generic issues relevant to all facilities such as probabilistic safety analyses. In 2015, all five nuclear power plants in Switzerland were safely operated and ENSI concluded that each had adhered to its approved operating conditions. There were 34 reportable events at the nuclear power plants; 32 events were rated at Level 0 on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (INES) and two at Level 1 (anomaly). The reason was for the first event, a combination of human errors that led to a scram and, for the second one, the simultaneous latent non-availability of two groundwater pumps, which increased the probability of core damage. The Zwilag facility consists of several interim storage halls, a conditioning plant and a plasma plant (incineration/melting plant). At the end of 2015, the cask storage hall contained 47 transport/storage casks with spent fuel assemblies and vitrified residue packages as well as six casks with waste arising from the decommissioning of the experimental nuclear power plant at Lucens. During 2015, Zwilag conducted one campaign to incinerate and melt radioactive waste. At PSI, ENSI is responsible for the surveillance of the hot laboratory, the three former research reactors SAPHIR, DIORIT and PROTEUS now in varying phases of decommissioning, the former experimental incineration plant and the facilities for the disposal of radioactive materials. During 2015, there were four reportable events, of which one was caused not by PSI but rather by a foreign shipper of a package. The research reactor at the University of Basel was finally decommissioned during the reporting year. ENSI concluded that the nuclear facilities at PSI and the research reactors at Lausanne and Basel had complied with their approved operating conditions. In 2015, the amount of radioactive material released into the environment via waste water and exhaust air from all nuclear facilities was significantly less than the limits specified in the operating licenses. Analyses showed that the maximum dose for persons in the immediate vicinity of a plant was less than 1 % of the annual exposure to natural radiation. During 2015, compacted, metallic, intermediate-level waste and intermediate-level vitrified residue packets from La Hague and three transport and storage containers from Sellafield were transported to Zwilag. Within the framework of Stage 2 of the site selection procedure (Sectoral Plan for Deep Geological Repositories), Nagra submitted its suggestion in January 2015 for the locations to be subject to further investigation in Stage 3. ENSI was able to call on the extensive experience gained at the Mont Terri Rock Laboratory with respect to clay-rich rock. The laboratory participated in a series of experiments on the rock mechanics of clays, the interaction between safety barriers and the development of suitable measurement technologies. ENSI participated in an information exchange with international working groups in the field of final storage and monitored other national disposal programmes involving the storage of waste in deep geological repositories.

    The Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate (ENSI), acting as the regulatory body of the Swiss Federation, assesses and monitors nuclear facilities in Switzerland: the five nuclear power plants, the interim storage facilities based at each plant, the Central Interim Storage Facility (ZWILAG) at Wuerenlingen together with the nuclear facilities at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), the University of Basel (UniB) and the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). Using a combination of inspections, regulatory meetings, examinations and analyses together with reports from the licensees of individual facilities, ENSI obtains the required overview of nuclear safety. It ensures that they comply with regulations. Its regulatory responsibilities include the transport of radioactive materials from and to nuclear facilities and the preparations for a deep geological repository for nuclear waste. ENSI maintains its own emergency organisation, an integral part of the national emergency structure. It provides the public with information on particular events in nuclear facilities. This Surveillance Report describes the operational experience, systems technology, radiological protection and management in all nuclear facilities. Generic issues relevant to all facilities such as probabilistic safety analyses are described. In 2014, all five nuclear power plants in Switzerland (Beznau Units I and 2, Muehleberg, Goesgen and Leibstadt) were operated safely. The nuclear safety at all plants was rated as good. 38 events were reported. There was one reactor scram at the Leibstadt nuclear power plant. On the International Event Scale (INES), ranging from 0--7, 37 events were rated as Level 0; one event was rated as INES 1: drill holes had penetrated the steel wall of the containment to secure two hand-held fire extinguishers. ZWILAG consists of several interim storage halls, a conditioning plant and a plasma plant. At the end of 2014, the cask storage hall contained 42 transport/storage casks with spent fuel assemblies and vitrified residue packages as well as six casks with decommissioned waste from the experimental nuclear power plant at Lucens. During the year, ZWILAG conducted one campaign to incinerate and melt radioactive waste; no reportable event was recorded. The nuclear facilities at PSI consist in the hot laboratory, the nuclear facilities being decommissioned (the three former research reactors SAPHIR, DIORIT and PROTEUS together with the experimental incineration plant that was taken out of service in 2002) and the facilities for the disposal of radioactive materials. During 2014, there were no reportable events at PSI. There was one reportable event at the research reactor of the UniB and one reportable event at the research reactor of the EPFL. ENSI concluded that the nuclear facilities at PSI and the research reactors at Lausanne and Basel had complied with their approved operating conditions. The amount of radioactive material released into the environment via waste water and exhaust air from all nuclear power facilities was significantly less than the limits specified in the operating licenses. The maximum dose for persons in the immediate vicinity of a plant was less than 1 % of the annual exposure to natural radiation. Spent fuel assemblies from Swiss nuclear power plants from previous years are being reprocessed at the reprocessing facilities at La Hague (France) and Sellafield (United Kingdom). The waste produced during reprocessing must be returned to Switzerland. During 2014, consignments containing high-level and medium-level waste were transported from La Hague to ZWILAG. The three-stage procedure for site selection for deep geological repositories is currently in Stage 2. During 2014, ENSI concluded its review of the geological state of knowledge for which the National Cooperative for the Disposal of Radioactive Waste (Nagra) had been requested to undertake 41 additional investigations. Nagra will now conduct investigations of the Jura Ost and Zurich Nordost regions as potential locations for a deep geological repository. Work continued in 2014 at the Mont Terri Rock Laboratory on the international, geological research project looking at Opalinus clay. In addition, ENSI participates in national and international working groups, allowing it to keep abreast of current developments in the field of earth sciences and the disposal of waste in deep geological repositories.

    The Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate (ENSI) assesses and monitors nuclear facilities in Switzerland. These include the five nuclear power plants, the interim storage facilities based at each plant, the Central Interim Storage Facility (ZWILAG) and the nuclear facilities at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), at the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and at the University of Basel. Using a combination of inspections, regulatory meetings, examinations and analyses together with reports from the licensees of individual facilities, ENSI obtains the required overview of nuclear safety in the relevant facilities. It ensures that the facilities comply with the regulations and operate as required by law. Its regulatory responsibilities also include the transport of radioactive materials from and to nuclear facilities and the preparations for a deep geological repository for nuclear waste. ENSI maintains its own emergency organisation. It formulates and updates its own guidelines which stipulate the criteria for evaluating the current activities and future plans of the operators of nuclear facilities. ENSI produces regular reports on its regulatory activities and nuclear safety in Swiss nuclear facilities. It fulfils its statutory obligation to provide the public with information on particular events and findings in nuclear facilities. In 2012, the five nuclear power plants in Switzerland were all operated safely. 34 events were reported; on the international INES scale of 0 to 7, ENSI rated 33 events as Level 0 and 1 as Level 1. ENSI evaluates the safety of each nuclear power plant as part of a systematic safety evaluation taking account of both reportable events and other findings, in particular the results of more than 400 inspections conducted by ENSI during 2012. ZWILAG consists of several interim storage halls, a conditioning plant and an incineration/melting plant. At the end of 2012, the cask storage hall contained 40 transport/storage casks with spent fuel assemblies and vitrified residue packages as well as six casks with decommissioned waste from the experimental nuclear power plant at Lucens. Some 20% of the capacity of the HLW store was in use and about 24% of the ILW store. During the year, ZWILAG conducted two campaigns to incinerate and melt radioactive waste. ENSI is also responsible for the surveillance of the nuclear facilities at PSI: the research reactor PROTEUS, the hot laboratory, the collection point for radioactive waste from medicine, industry and research and the Federal Interim Storage Facility. During 2012, there were no further operational activities or radiation experiments at the PROTEUS research reactor. Two reportable events were recorded at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), but no one at the research reactors at EPFL or the University of Basel. Last year, the amount of radioactive material released into the environment via waste water and exhaust air from the facilities under review was considerably less than the limits specified in the operating licenses. Analyses showed that the maximum doses were less than 1 % of the annual exposure to natural radiation. During 2012, spent fuel assemblies from Swiss nuclear power plants were reprocessed. The AREVA recycling facility in La Hague returned a consignment of high level waste. According to the Sectoral Plan for the deep geological repository, NAGRA proposed several different sites for surface facilities. ENSI provided information on the safety criteria for the selection process and on safety and geology, particularly in view of the Opalinus Clay Project. The geological research into the Opalinus clay continued during 2012. Every five years, the licensees of nuclear power plants are required by law to re-calculate the decommissioning and waste management costs. During 2012, ENSI evaluated the technical principles used in the 2011 cost study conducted by the licensees of nuclear power plants. ENSI is involved in its own projects and cooperation: one project is looking at the geo-mechanical behaviour of the Opalinus clay, two other projects are examining the behaviour of Opalinus clay tunnel walls on drying, and a third is evaluating a new method of measuring porosity. Participation in national and international working groups provides ENSI with an opportunity to pursue issues relating to the disposal of waste in deep geological repositories and to remain up-to-date with the current state of science and research.

    The Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate ENSI, acting as the regulatory body of the Swiss Confederation, assesses and monitors nuclear facilities in Switzerland. These include five nuclear power plants, the interim storage facilities based at each plant, the Central Interim Storage Facility (ZWILAG) at Wuerenlingen together with the nuclear facilities at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and the two universities of Basel and Lausanne. ENSI ensures that the facilities comply with regulations and operate according to the law. Its regulatory responsibilities also include the transport of radioactive materials to and from nuclear facilities and the preparations for a deep geologic repository for nuclear waste. It maintains its own emergency organisation, which is an integral part of a national emergency structure. Building on the legislative framework, ENSI also formulates and updates its own guidelines. It provides the public with information on particular events and findings in nuclear facilities. In 2011, all five nuclear power reactors in Switzerland (Beznau Units 1 and 2, Muehleberg, Goesgen and Leibstadt) were operated safely and ENSI concluded that they had complied with their approved operating conditions. There were 27 reportable events in the nuclear power plants in Switzerland: 7 at Beznau, 5 at Goesgen, 11 at Leibstadt und 4 at Muehleberg. On the international INES scale of 0 to 7, ENSI rated 26 events as Level 0. One event, at the Muehleberg nuclear power plant, was rated as INES Level 1. This related to a potential blockage of the emergency water intake system in the event of extreme flooding. The operator BKW shut down the Muehleberg plant ahead of the scheduled maintenance date and upgraded the system. ZWILAG consists of several interim storage halls, a conditioning plant and a plasma plant (incineration/melting plant). At the end of 2011, the cask storage hall contained 34 transport/storage casks with fuel assemblies and vitrified residue packages as well as 6 casks with decommissioned waste from the experimental nuclear power plant at Lucens. About 17 % of the capacity of the high-level radioactive waste store had been used and about 23 % of the low- and intermediate-level waste store. During the year, ZWILAG conducted two campaigns to incinerate and melt radioactive waste. ENSI recorded no reportable events at ZWILAG during 2011. ENSI is also responsible for the surveillance of the nuclear facilities at PSI: the research reactor PROTEUS, the hot laboratory, the collection point for radioactive waste from medicine, industry and research, and ZWILAG. From the radiological standpoint, decommissioning work at the two research reactors DIORIT and SAPHIR progressed correctly. There were no further irradiation experiments during 2011 at PROTEUS and operational activities were restricted to routine maintenance and checks. During 2011, there were three reportable events at PSI relevant to nuclear safety. All were rated as INES Level 0. ENSI recorded one reportable event at the research reactor at the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne and none at the University of Basel. ENSI concluded that the nuclear facilities at PSI and the research reactors at Lausanne and Basel had complied with their approved operating conditions during 2011. Last year the amount of radioactive material released into the environment via waste water and exhaust air from nuclear power plants, ZWILAG, the PSI and the nuclear facilities at Basel and Lausanne was considerably less than the limits specified in the operating licenses. They resulted in maximum calculated doses, including for those residents in the immediate vicinity of a plant, of less than 1 % of the annual exposure to natural radiation. During 2011, two consignments of compacted reprocessing waste were transported from La Hague in France to ZWILAG. The consignments of fuel assemblies and radioactive waste were transported in accordance with the limits specified in the regulations. As part of Stage 1 of the Sectoral Plan for the deep geologic repository, the National Cooperative for the Disposal of Radioactive Waste (NAGRA) proposed six possible locations for geologic disposal for ILW waste and three for HLW waste. ENSI reviewed the procedure used by NAGRA and found it to be both transparent and understandable. It approved the proposed locations. The main ENSI demand was for more information on the host rock. In addition, ENSI demanded a systematic description of the hydraulic flow paths for the various locations and in-depth studies of structural issues. During 2011, NAGRA continued its geologic research at the Rock Laboratories of Grimsel (crystalline rock) and Mont Terri (Opalinus clay). For its part, ENSI is conducting an experiment at Mont Terri to determine the geo-mechanical behaviour of the Opalinus clay. It is also participating in two other experiments: one to determine the drying out behaviour of the tunnel walls of Opalinus clay, another to evaluate a new method for measuring porosity.

The nuclear safety at all plants was rated as being good. 34 events were reported. During operation, no reactor scrams were recorded. On the INES scale, ranging from 0-7, ENSI rated all reportable events as Level 0. The ENSI safety evaluation reflects both reportable events and the results of the approximately 460 inspections conducted during 2013. ZWILAG consists of several storage halls, a conditioning plant and a plasma plant. At the end of 2013, the cask storage hall contained 40 transport/storage casks with spent fuel assemblies and vitrified residue packages as well as six casks with decommissioned waste from the experimental nuclear power plant at Lucens.

ENSI concluded that the nuclear facilities at PSI and the research reactors at Lausanne and Basel had complied with their approved operating conditions in 2013. The amount of radioactive material released into the environment via waste water and exhaust air from all nuclear facilities was significantly less than the limits specified in the operating licenses. The maximum dose for residents in the immediate vicinity of a plant was less than 1% of the annual exposure to natural radiation. Spent fuel assemblies from Swiss nuclear power plants from previous years are being reprocessed at the reprocessing facilities at La Hague (France) and Sellafield (United Kingdom). The waste produced during reprocessing must subsequently be returned to Switzerland. During 2013, there were no return transports. ENSI is responsible for reviewing the safety aspects of the waste management of the nuclear facilities up until the time they are decommissioned. Stage 2 of the procedure for site selection for deep geological repositories started at the end of 2011. The National Cooperative for the Disposal of Radioactive Waste (Nagra) announced additional inquiries and ENSI made 41 demands for further investigations. Information on the methodology used by Nagra to evaluate both safety criteria and safety-based comparisons was provided. In 2013, work continued on the international geological research project on Opalinus clay at the Mont Terri Rock Laboratory. ENSI also continued its involvement in national and international working groups. This allows ENSI to monitor international developments in the field of earth sciences and the disposal of waste in deep geological repositories.

    ENSI, the Swiss Federal Nuclear Safety Inspectorate, assesses and monitors safety in the Swiss nuclear facilities. These include the five nuclear power plants: Beznau Units 1 and 2 (KKB1 and KKB2), Muehleberg (KKM), Goesgen (KKG) and Leibstadt (KKL), the interim storage facilities based at each plant, the Central Interim Storage Facility (Zwilag) in Wuerenlingen together with the nuclear facilities at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), the University of Basel (UniB) and the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). Using a combination of inspections, regulatory meetings, checks, analyses and the reporting of the operators of individual facilities, ENSI obtains the required overview of nuclear safety in these facilities. It ensures that they operate as required by law. ENSI's regulatory responsibilities also include the transport of radioactive materials from and to nuclear facilities and preparations for a deep geological repository for radioactive waste. ENSI maintains its own emergency organisation, which is an integral part of the national emergency structure that would be activated in the event of a serious incident at a nuclear facility in Switzerland. ENSI reports periodically on its supervisory activities. It informs the public about special events and findings in the nuclear installations. All five nuclear power plants in Switzerland operated safely during the past year. Nuclear safety at all plants in operation was rated as good or satisfactory. In 2016, there were 31 reportable events at the nuclear power plants. 30 events were rated Level 0 (event of no or low safety significance) on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (INES) and one was rated Level 1 (anomaly) at KKL. Zwilag consists of several interim storage buildings, a conditioning plant and a plasma plant (incineration/melting plant). At the end of 2016, the cask storage hall contained 56 transport/storage casks with spent fuel assemblies and vitrified residue packages as well as one cask with the fuel assemblies from the shut down research reactor DIORIT of PSI and six casks with waste from the decommissioning of the experimental nuclear power plant at Lucens. During 2016 only one campaign to incinerate and melt radioactive waste was carried out. ENSI recorded no reportable events at Zwilag during the reporting year. The nuclear facilities at PSI consist of the hot laboratory, the three former research reactors SAPHIR, DIORIT and PROTEUS now in varying phases of decommissioning, the former experimental incineration plant and the facilities for the disposal of radioactive materials including the Federal Government's interim storage facility. During 2016, no events were reported at the PSI, at EPFL or at UniB. In 2016, the amount of radioactive material released into the environment via waste water and exhaust air from the nuclear power plants, Zwilag and the nuclear facilities at PSI, Basel and Lausanne was significantly less than the limits specified in the operating licenses. Analyses showed that the maximum dose for persons in the immediate vicinity of a plant was less than 1% of the annual exposure to natural radiation. The waste produced during reprocessing at the reprocessing facilities of La Hague (France) and Sellafield (United Kingdom) must be returned to Switzerland. In the reporting year, compacted, metallic, intermediate level waste and intermediate level vitrified residue packets were transported to Zwilag. All nuclear waste from Swiss fuel assemblies sent abroad for reprocessing is now stored at Zwilag. During 2016, all transports of radioactive substances to and from Swiss nuclear installations took place without any incidents. The site selection procedure for the storage of radioactive waste has been running since 2008. ENSI bears overall responsibility for the safety assessment of the geological site areas. The National Cooperative for the Disposal of Radioactive Waste (Nagra) submitted its suggestion for the site areas to be further investigated. The three geological site areas Zurich North-East, Jura East and North of Laegern require further investigation both for use as a low-and intermediate-level radioactive waste (SMA) store and as a high-level radioactive waste (HAA) repository. ENSI carried out investigations and research work relevant for deep geological repositories and participated in research projects at Mont Terri Rock Laboratory and in various international programs.

    Full Text Available Einleitung: Im Juli 2002 wurden die Daten der Women’s-Health-Initiative-Studie (WHI-Studie veröffentlicht und zeigten ein erhöhtes Risiko für Herz-Kreislauf-Krankheiten. Im gleichen Jahr wurde von Januar bis Dezember die Schweizerische Gesundheitsbefragung (SGB durchgeführt. Methoden: Wir analysierten in der SGB 2002 (19.706 durchgeführte Interviews die selbst berichteten Angaben zur gegenwärtigen Inanspruchnahme der Hormontherapie (HT in der Schweiz vor und nach der Publikation der WHI-Resultate der Frauen im Alter über 45 Jahre mit einer zusätzlichen Auswertung für die Inanspruchnahme der HT aus präventiven Gründen. Wir berechneten repräsentative Prävalenzangaben durch Gewichtung entsprechend dem Design der Stichprobenziehung. In multivariablen logistischen Regressionen wurde der Zusammenhang mit möglichen Einflussvariablen untersucht. Resultate: Die Prävalenz der HT betrug bei Befragten im Zeitraum vor der Publikation (Januar–Juni 2002 20,4 % und 23,2% bei Befragten im Zeitraum danach (August–Dezember 2002. Selbst nach Bereinigung für mögliche Einflussvariablen zeigte sich kein Zeittrend (bereinigte OR = 1,12; 95 %-Vertrauensintervall: 0,93–1,35, dies auch für die Inanspruchnahme der HT aus präventiven Gründen (bereinigte OR = 1,04; 95 %-VI: 0,83–1,29. Frauen mit höherer Bildung, höherem Einkommen und gesünderem Lebensstil hatten häufiger eine HT. Schlussfolgerungen: Unsere Annahme, dass die Publikation der WHI-Resultate die Prävalenz der HT von Frauen über 45 in der Schweiz kurzfristig beeinflusst hatte, bestätigte sich nicht. Eine kritische Aufnahme und Verarbeitung von medizinischen Informationen ist Voraussetzung für den verantwortungsvollen Umgang mit medizinischen Leistungen. Frauen müssen fähig sein, Risiken und Nutzen abzuwägen und sich eigenständig für oder gegen eine HT zu entscheiden.

At the same time theologians often summon the idea of an overall decline of personal truth convictions anyhow. The article evaluates the empirical data from selected German schools looking for teacher`s personal adoption of religious orientation in subject-related ways. It evaluates the interplay between personal position-taking of teachers, their classroom practice and its constitutive factors (pupils, contexts of school and schooling etc..

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available This article addresses Norbert Elias’s essay The Loneliness of the Dying (1982. In the first part the author reviews Elias’s ideas on how the contemporary social structure has produced characteristic problems for dying. In our age, the phenomena and the reality of death are pushed behind the scenes of social life. The second part presents one of the most important theses in this paper, i.e. the idea of anamnestic reason. The author gives her reflection on the Eliasian concepts of communication, engagement, and balance of power. This We-I-Balance as a learning process should lead to rebalancing and redefinition of anamnestic reason / collective memory. In the third part the author briefly illustrates some similarities between Elias’ category of death and two other ideas: nihilism by T. Różewicz and biopolitics by G. Agamben.

    Gruhn, W

    1982-01-01

    This study pursues two aims: description and analysis of the environmental policy of the GDR, its ideologic foundations and economic constraints, its legal and administrative measures for the safeguarding of environmental protection, but also of the reasons for neglecting this task. Framework conditions are outlined and used in or for analysing the environmental problems caused mainly by the GDR's environmental policy, and the approaches and efforts made to find solutions. Both parts are based on statements and comments of politicians and theoreticians, on the actual policy of the GDR and on descriptions of the situation and contributions of scientists and technicians. The discussion of nuclear energy, risk evaluation and acceptance of this kind of energy supply in the GDR are a further major feature of the book. Analysis showed that environmental protection is viewed merely as a marginal problem by political and economical forces of the GDR, even though environmental protection is considered an important task on a global level and the GDR-leadership verbally agrees with this view. Discrepancies between verbal acknowledgement and striving for solution becomes outstandingly clear in this analysis.

    The acceptance of technological risks, which is discussed today mainly in the context of large-scale technologies, has become the subject of political argument, of power politics and also of negotiation. Its evaluation and assessment depend not least on the current atmosphere for decisions and the specific subject. Acceptance research - this is one of the central theses of this book - is not (only) a reactive instrument for later fine-tuning after the probability of risk is evident, but can also be more. However, it requires to this end 'cleaner' and more comprehensible methods; the recognition of its viability limits is also necessary. It provides then a possibility for a rational formulation of policies on the basis of a long-standing, and certainly partly superfluous technological-political dialogue. (orig.).

    The supplemental information refers to the biological radiation effects, oncogenic and mutagenic effects, the biological significance of long-lived radionuclides. The conclusions to be drawn are summarized in the slightly simplified statement that the total additional radiation exposure due to the Chernobyl fallout is lower than the average annual, natural radiation exposure, which however varies within West Germany by a factor 6. The additional risk incurred in West Germany by the fallout certainly is very low, compared to other anthropogenic risks. (orig./HSCH).

    Perhaps, pilgrimage sites are one of the oldest examples of controlled place branding, but they are still an interesting teaching tool for this subject because they are characterized by lower complexity and functionality compared to cities and regions. They are also smaller in size and they usually occupy very specific positions of popular piety. This makes the transferability of the branding concept easier than in other urban or rurality areas. Against this background, this essay examines the question how popular piety can still contribute to place branding of pilgrimages sites.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Katharina Thielen

    2011-11-01

    Full Text Available Katharina Thielen highlights the structures of the 19th century societey. While carrying out her research she maintains a socio-historical perspective and furthermore focuses on the so-called social class of the 'Bürgertum' (bourgeoisie. As a new factor of power within the German Empire this diverse social group, consisting of civil servants, scholars, freelancers and merchants, had a decisive influence on the structural developments and social rearrangement of the contemporary time. A basic element in this process is represented through the genuine social norms and values of the bourgeoisie. These values expressed an universal validity. However, in the social realitiy these values could often not be realized. As a consequence, the concrete behaviour of members of the bourgeoisie diverted quite often from those given principles and norms of behaviour. The reasons for this ambivalence as well as the question wether the norms and values were at least in part enforced and live on in society to the present day are reviewed via the theories of Pierre Bourdieu. The habitus-concept of Bourdieu serves as the foundation of analysis of the culture of the bourgeoisie. The culture as such worked in a twofold way; excluding and unifying at the same time and therefore standing in harsh contrast to the actual values and norms. The value of education will serve as an example while showing the ambivalence of this concept. The approach to the new and universal „human education“ was significantly determined by the capital. Nevertheless, exactly this paradoxon was crucial when it came to achieving a position of power, which allowed the burgeoisie, as a social class, to realize its genuine social values and norms in society.

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available Sven Lewandowski versucht mittels der ungewöhnlichen Kombination von Psychoanalyse und Systemtheorie der Relevanz pornographischer Inhalte innerhalb der Gegenwartsgesellschaft nachzuspüren. Neben dem Internetphänomen der Amateurpornographie untersucht er dabei aus soziologischer und medienanalytisch informierter Perspektive Geschlechterverhältnisse, ‚Perversionen‘ und andere Erscheinungen des Pornographischen. Lewandowski wagt sich damit unter Zuhilfenahme einer der abstraktesten Theorien der Wissenschaftslandschaft an eines ihrer emotionalisiertesten und randständigsten Themen. Hierdurch gelingt es ihm, einen gehörigen Abstand zwischen das Alltagsphänomen Porno und dessen theoretische Betrachtung zu bringen, er entfernt sich damit aber gleichzeitig in gewisser Weise von seinem Gegenstand.Using the rather extraordinary combination of psychoanalysis and systems theory, Sven Lewandowski tries to trace the relevance of pornographic contents within contemporary society. In addition to the Internet phenomenon of amateur pornography, he also analyzes gender relations, ‘perversions,’ as well as other aspects of pornography from a sociological and media-analytical perspective. In doing so, Lewandowski dares to explore one of the most emotionalized and marginalized topics of science using one of its most abstract theories. He thus manages to bring quite some distance between the everyday phenomenon of pornography and its theoretical consideration.

    Arend, M.

    2004-07-01

    This final report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) is one of a series of reports concerning municipal development in various cities in Switzerland. The four city districts involved include Basel (Gundeldinger Feld), Lausanne (Bellevaux), Lucerne (Basel-/Bernstrasse) and Zurich (Werdwies). This paper takes a look at society aspects in the four districts and examines the factors that influence the sustainable development of the districts. Topics discussed include basic residential needs, safety, health, and supply along with culture and education. Also examined are the possible topics equality and fairness and participation along with geographical reference and neighbourhood relations. A project for this area of investigation is suggested.

  11. Caritas in Veritate – die Bedeutung von Liebe und Wahrheit für eine gute Gesellschaft

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Full Text Available Love and truth are the two attributes of a well-functioning society. Unfortunately, these two basic values are often being devalued in the modern world. The reason for this is the lack of a sense of justice. Especially because in the social and cultural context the truth is often relativized. In this context it is worth analysing the Pope Benedict XVI’s encyclical Caritas in Veritate , in which one should pay attention to a construction of the society in which today’s human person lives. Love and truth are the two attributes of a good society in with each human is equipped. From the very beginning, the human person is called to be directed by love and truth. He or she is called to this truth by his or her Christian life and ontic dimension of his or her nature. Society without love and truth will be threatened with agony, because it will not only stop developing but also its wrongly understood economical status will become a road to nowhere. That is why we should definitely accept the thesis that homo economicus must convert into homo religiosus in the name of love and truth, so that society will be good. Let love in truth leads to a good society, which the whole world is for us.

    The special activities of the SAKOG management are outlined. While the daily struggle with difficult deposits and the efforts in prolonging the working life of an enterprise by further successful coal mining are the most important aspects of technology, it is the main task of the commercial side to meet the financial requirements of the enterprise by securing optimal proceeds. The reliable organizational structure of an easily controllable enterprise which is not too large and the proved availability of all components have led to the successes of the past 35 years. Maintaining the continuity of this development means marching at the top of progress also in the future.

    1986-01-01

    This volume deals in detail with the multidisciplinary subject of the perception and assessment of hazards both according to objective and subjective points of view, and relates to recent studies performed particularly in the USA. The author shows up possible methods and means to arrive at a handling of hazards in keeping with socio-political requirements, and intends to draw the general public's attention to this topic. The individual chapters are dedicated to the term of risk, the acceptable risk, the perception of hazards, the special case of nuclear energy, the psychological backgrounds, the qualification of hazards, hazard assessment and risk management. Abstracts of these chapters were entered separately into the data base. The author thinks the dialogue with the citizen to be the only way to arrive at a better understanding of ''risk'' in the general public. (HSCH).

    Zeyer, C J

    1993-01-01

    Part A of this thesis deals with the question whether solar energy research makes sense or not. Based on physical considerations, the state of solar energy technology and its future potential it is shown that it is impossible to realize the solar alternative with today's dynamic of energy consumption. Nevertheless in long terms, there is no alternative to solar energy, if we are taking into account the pollution problems by hydrocarbon and nuclear energy production. Therefore the factors that determine energy consumption have to be investigated. The analysis shows that energy consumption is not only determined by natural science but more than this by social aspects. In the author's opinion, the most important factors are: the structure of society (including aspects of organization and geographical structures of the economic system), the way how society deals with energy (including role of energy prize) and the ethic background of society and its connection to energy consumption. Focussed on environmental and energy problems, these aspects and its interconnections are discussed in 21 theses. Part B of this thesis describes an electrochemical method of characterization of semiconductors, the so-called Mott-Schottky plots and the results which have been obtained by this method with p-type silicon in acetonitrile.

    The project 'Planning geological underground repositories: Communicating with society', financed by the Swiss Federal Office for Energy, aimed at identifying basic principles for an appropriate information and communication strategy in the process of finding an underground site to store radioactive wastes. The topic concerns an issue increasingly discussed in modern societies: How to improve the dialogue between science, infrastructure operators, public authorities, groups in civil society and the population to answer complex problems? Against this background, in the project the following questions were taken into account: (i) How can the dialogue between science, politics, economy, and the (non-)organised public be arranged appropriately? Which principles are to be considered in organising this process? How can distrust within the population be reduced and confidence in authorities and scientific expertise be increased? (ii) How can society be integrated in the process of decision-making so that this process is perceived as comprehensible, acceptable and legitimate? To answer these questions, an analysis method based on scientific theory and methodology was developed, which compares national participation and communication processes in finding underground storage sites in selected countries. Case studies have been carried out in Germany, Sweden, Belgium, and Switzerland. By using specific criteria to evaluate communication processes, the strong points as well as the drawbacks of the country-specific concepts of information, communication and participation have been analysed in a comparing dimension. By taking into account the outcomes, prototypical scenarios have been deduced that can serve as a basis for compiling a reference catalogue of measures, which is meant to support the Swiss communication strategy in the finding of an appropriate site for a nuclear waste repository. Following conclusions can be drawn from the international comparison: (i) Open and transparent communication builds-up trust: information must be accessible to everyone; experts have to be understandable for everyone. (ii) Actor roles have to be communicated: too many communicators and/or not clearly defined roles diminish credibility. - Communication on regional and local levels has priority: communicators are persons, not anonymous organisations; however, do not forget national communication. (iii) Best communication is public participation: it builds up expertise and ability to judge. (iv) Communication needs sufficient and fair distributed resources. The empirical results of this research project have been translated into a separate brochure with guidelines for the communication throughout the oncoming site selection process in Switzerland.

    Introduction: The German DRG system is annually adapted to the changing services provided. For the further development, the self-governing body and its DRG Institute (InEK) depend on participation of the users. Methods: For one of the DRG evaluation projects initiated by DGGG, cost and performance data for the year 2011 from 16 hospitals were available. After plausibility checks and corrections, analyses for service and cost homogeneity were performed. In cases of inadequate DRG-representation attributes were sought that would make an appropriate reimbursement possible. Conspicuities and potential solutions were checked for clinical plausibility. Results: 44 concrete modification proposals for further development of the G-DRG system were formulated and submitted in due time to the InEK. In addition, 3 modification proposals were addressed to the German Institute for Medical Documentation and Information (Deutsches Institut für Medizinische Dokumentation und Information, DIMDI) for further development of the diagnosis classification ICD-10-GM. For all modification proposals care was taken to minimise misdirected incentives and to reduce the potential for disputes with the cost bearers and their auditors services in settlements. Discussion: The publication of the G-DRG system 2014 shows which modification proposals have been realised. Essentially, an appropriate redistribution of the resources among the gynaecological and obstetrics departments is to be expected. The financial pressure that is caused by the generally inadequate financing of hospitals will not be reduced by a further development of the G-DRG system.

    In a few years, Switzerland will make the decision regarding site selection for geological underground repositories for the storage of radioactive wastes. Besides the safety issue, many citizens are interested in how such a repository will affect environment, economy and society in the selected site's region. This brochure summarizes the results of many studies on the socio-economic impacts of nuclear waste repositories. Radioactive wastes must be stored in such a way that mankind and environment are safely protected for a long period of time. How this goal may be achieved, is already known: geologic deep repositories warrant long-term safety. For the oncoming years in Switzerland the question is where the repository will be built. The search for an appropriate site for a repository in the proposed regions will launch discussions. Within the participative framework the regions may bring their requests. The demonstration of the safety of potential repository sites has the highest priority in the selection process. In the third procedural step additional rock investigations will be made. The socio-economic studies and the experience with existing plants show that radioactive waste management plants can be built and operated in good agreement with environmental requirements. The radioactive wastes in a deep underground repository are stored many hundred meters below the Earth's surface. There, they are isolated from our vital space. Technical barriers and the surrounding dense rock confinement prevent the release of radioactive materials into the environment. A deep repository has positive consequences for the regional economy. It increases trade and value creation and creates work places. The socio-economic impacts practically extend over one century, but strongly vary with time; they are the largest during the building period. High life quality and a positive population development in the selected site region are compatible with a deep repository. A fair and transparent unrolling of the site selection process is the basis for that

    The radiological consequences of a serious accident in Swiss nuclear power plants on the drinking water supply was studied, preventive measures for securing the drinking water quality were elaborated. Based on the scaling of thermal power and burnup of the used nuclear fuel the fission product release in case of a severe accident was estimated for airborne and waterborne migration paths. In cities that use the rivers for their water drinking water supplies have to stop the water abstraction. The Swiss tolerance and limiting values for radionuclides in drinking water would be exceeded shortly after the accident and the hazardous situation would last for more than 90 days.

    ENSI, the regulatory body of the Swiss Confederation, assesses and monitors the nuclear safety of nuclear facilities in Switzerland. These include the five nuclear power plants (NPPs), the plant-based interim storage facilities, the Central Interim Storage Facility (ZWILAG) at Wuerenlingen, as well as the nuclear facilities at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and the two universities of Basel and Lausanne (EPFL). Its regulatory obligations also include the transport of radioactive materials from and to nuclear facilities and the preparation of a deep geological repository for radioactive waste. ENSI maintains its own emergency organisation that would be activated in case of a serious incident at a nuclear facility in Switzerland. The legislative framework for ENSI's regulatory functions are the Nuclear Energy Act (KEG), the Nuclear Energy Ordinance (KEV), the Radiological Protection Act (StSG), the Radiological Protection Ordinance (StSV), as well as other ordinances and regulations related to reactor safety, the training of operating personnel, the organisation of the emergency response to increases in radioactivity, the transport of radioactive materials, and the deep geological repository. ENSI formulates and updates guidelines that stipulate the criteria by which it evaluates the activities and plans put forward by the operators of nuclear facilities. It regularly publishes reports and provides the public with information on events and findings at nuclear facilities. Chapters 1 to 4 of this Surveillance Report are devoted to the five Swiss NPPs. For each plant, the ENSI evaluation concludes with a safety ranking: high, good, satisfactory and unsatisfactory. Chapter 5 deals with ZWILAG for the processing and interim storage of radioactive waste from Swiss nuclear facilities. Chapters 6 and 7 deal with the nuclear facilities at PSI and with the research reactors at Basel and at EPFL. Chapter 8 deals with the transport of radioactive materials from and to nuclear facilities in Switzerland. Chapter 9 provides an update on the three applications submitted so far for the outline approval of a new nuclear power plant. Chapter 10 provides information on the geological repository for radioactive waste and Chapter 11 deals with generic aspects not specific to any individual facility. The overall nuclear safety of the Beznau and Goesgen NPPs is rated as satisfactory. Based on its Systematic Safety Reviews at the Leibstadt and Muehleberg plants, ENSI rates their operating safety as good. All these facilities complied with their operating licenses. The licensees complied with the statutory reporting requirements, with exception of the Goesgen NPP which delayed notification of an incident in 2008 by several months. In 2009 there were 22 notifiable incidents at NPPs: 11 incidents occurred at Beznau NPP, 4 at Muehleberg, 3 at Goesgen, and 4 at Leibstadt. The incident at Beznau on 3 August 2009 was rated at Level 2 on INES scale, the one at Goesgen on 24 June 2008, where notification was delayed, was rated at level 1 on INES, and the remaining incidents during 2009 were rated as INES 0. ZWILAG consists of several interim storage halls, a conditioning plant, and the plasma plant. At the end of 2009, the cask storage hall contained 33 transport/storage casks with spent fuel assemblies and vitrified residue packages as well as 6 casks with decommissioned waste from the former experimental NPP at Lucens. About 16% of the capacity of the HLW store and about 21% of the capacity of the ILW store were occupied. The nuclear safety of the storage buildings and the hot cell was good. During 2009, there were 3 notifiable incidents at ZWILAG. In 2009 ENSI granted approval for the unrestricted use of the plasma plant. ZWILAG conducted two operations to process, incinerate and melt radioactive waste. At PSI the decommissioning work at the two research reactors DIORIT and SAPHIR continued smoothly. Experiments on the PROTEUS research reactor were conducted in compliance with the related rules and regulations. There were 2 notifiable incidents at PSI. ENSI awarded the PSI facilities and those at the universities of Basel and Lausanne an overall nuclear safety rating of good. The annual collective doses remained low. In 2009, the amount of radioactive material released into the environment through waste water and exhaust air from the NPPs, ZWILAG, the PSI and the other nuclear facilities was considerably lower than the limits specified in the operating licenses. The maximum doses, including those for residents in the immediate vicinity of a plant, were less than 1% of the annual exposure to natural radiation. Waste from reprocessing is again transported back to Switzerland from La Hague in France. All fuel assemblies and radioactive waste were transported in accordance with the limits specified in the regulations. NAGRA proposed several possible locations for the geological repository of low, medium and high-level waste. ENSI reviewed this proposal and concluded that each of the proposed locations meets the suitability criteria. NAGRA continued its research activities at the rock laboratories of Grimsel (crystalline rock) and Mont Terri (Opalinus clay). ENSI started a new experiment on rock deformation and is participating in two other experiments on Opalinus clay

    Observations of disturbances in the hormonal regulation mechanisms of humans and animals raised an interest in the potential hazards of environmental pollutants with hormonal, in particular estrogenic activity. The available information on the mode of action, dose dependence and exposure pathways (exposure scenarios) suggests that the hazard to humans may be low. On the other hand, the exotoxicological effects are less easily assessible, and further investigations will be required for a well-founded risk characterisation and assessment. There are now many research programmes in this field in various countries including Germany. For example, there are projects concerning 'Environmental chemicals affecting the endocrineous system (environmental hormones)' which are funded by the German state (German Bundestag 1998) and several projects funded by the Association of the Chemical Industry and various German states. Further information on terminated and current projects is available from the Federal Environmental Office where the national activities are coordinated. [German] Beobachtungen ueber die Beeinflussung hormoneller Regulationsmechanismen bei Mensch und Tier haben die Aufmerksamkeit auf eine moegliche Gefaehrdung durch Umweltstoffe mit hormoneller, insbesondere solche mit oestrogener Aktivitaet gelenkt. Die verfuegbaren Informationen ueber Wirkungsweise, Dosisabhaengigkeit und Art der Exposition (Expositionsszenarien) lassen das Ausmass der Gefaehrdung fuer den Menschen gering erscheinen. Die oekotoxikologischen Auswirkungen sind demgegenueber weniger klar. Fuer eine fundierte Risikocharakterisierung und Risikoabschaetzung sind weitgehende Untersuchungen erforderlich. Dem tragen zahlreiche Forschungsprogramme in verschiedenen Laendern Rechnung. Auch in Deutschland wird Forschung auf diesem Gebiet unterstuetzt. Zum Beispiel: etliche Vorhaben zum Thema ''Chemikalien in der Umwelt mitWirkung auf das endokrine System (Umwelthormone)'' mit Mitteln der Bundesregierung (Deutscher Bundestag 1998) und weitere Projekte durch den Verband der Chemischen Industrie und einzelne Bundeslaender.

    order to validate these estimations, the resulting sediment transfer rates are compared to transfer rates calculated from repeated terrestrial LiDAR surveys on selected study cases. This contribution presents results from the application of this methodology in a test study area in the south-western Swiss Alps. The methodology reveals itself suitable to identify rock glaciers connected to the torrential network. For each of the detected rock glaciers, an estimation of the sediment yield is proposed. The transfer rates range from tens of cubic meters per year for some slow moving and/or partially connected landforms, to several thousands of cubic meters per year. References: Delaloye R. (2004).

    From the perspective of owners of publicly accessible transport route infrastructure - especially at a time when budgets are tight - there are two major questions that need to be posed and a rapid answer demanded: does a maintenance organisation established in the form of a public agency or a commercial enterprise yield better results, that is, higher and better output with declining input (agency versus company); and should an agency or transport infrastructure firm outsource all or part of its maintenance organisation (make-or-buy)? The authors, based on their experience gained in a variety of management functions in corporations and agencies as well as in executive coaching, provide quite different perspectives on these issues.

    The Karlsruhe Research Center is Germany's largest multidisciplinary research establishment in the fields of natural sciences and technology. In its relatively short period of existence, the Research Center has experienced vivid evolution and modification of original research goals, and even a profound change of the major tasks and goals laid down at the time of its foundation, which most obviously expresses itself in the change of name from Nuclear Research Center into Research Center, effective since January 1995. The wealth of important material accumulated in the archives of the Center throughout the almost 40 years of existence is a treasure for the historian and offered the tempting and useful task to process the material into a historical survey offering the many facettes of the history: in the end, the result combines an important piece of history of technology with the history of the Land of Baden-Wuerttemberg, the region, and the neighbouring city of Karlsruhe. In addition, the publication in hand also offers insight into the sociological aspects of the research work performed in the Center, and the interactive impetus of research and development in the interest of society at large.

    This report for the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) discusses the concept of how information concerning deep geological repositories for radioactive wastes should be presented and communicated to those in the areas which have been designated as potential sites for the repositories. Communication basics based on scientific knowledge in this area are discussed. The importance of a concept for general communication and risk-communication as a particular challenge are discussed. Trust and transparency are quoted as being indispensable in this connection. Ways of dealing with various target audiences and the media are examined. The report is concluded with a check-list that deals with important questions arising from the process of communicating information on deep geological repositories for radioactive wastes

    17 adenovirus strains were found to be antigenically related to prototype Ad 15 by neutralization. No relationship to Ad 15, but to Ad 9 could be detected by hemagglutination-inhibition; we therefore named them Ad 15/H9 intermediate strains. After analysis of the genome by five different restriction enzymes, the fragment patterns obtained deviated widely from the prototype Ad 15, but only slightly from Ad 9. Differences could also be observed among the variants. After digestion by five restriction enzymes, altogether six genome types could be established among the 17 intermediate strains. To map the variations on the genome of the 15/H9 strains, two methods were employed: the double digestion of the DNA and DNA fragments together with the determination of the terminal fragments made it possible to construct a physical map. The second method depends on a particularity of adenoviruses: the DNA is covalently linked with a 55 kD protein at the 5' terminus. After digestion of the DNA, which does contain this protein, the terminal DNA fragments do not migrate into the agarose gel; after an additional digestion with pronase B, they do migrate into the gel. Thus the terminal fragments were determined by comparing the fragment patterns with and without previous pronase B treatment.

    Introduction: The German DRG system is annually adapted to the changing services provided. For the further development, the self-governing body and its DRG Institute (InEK) depend on participation of the users. Methods: For one of the DRG evaluation projects initiated by DGGG, cost and performance data for the year 2011 from 16 hospitals were available. After plausibility checks and corrections, analyses for service and cost homogeneity were performed. In cases of inadequate DRG-representation attributes were sought that would make an appropriate reimbursement possible. Conspicuities and potential solutions were checked for clinical plausibility. Results: 44 concrete modification proposals for further development of the G-DRG system were formulated and submitted in due time to the InEK. In addition, 3 modification proposals were addressed to the German Institute for Medical Documentation and Information (Deutsches Institut für Medizinische Dokumentation und Information, DIMDI) for further development of the diagnosis classification ICD-10-GM. For all modification proposals care was taken to minimise misdirected incentives and to reduce the potential for disputes with the cost bearers and their auditors services in settlements. Discussion: The publication of the G-DRG system 2014 shows which modification proposals have been realised. Essentially, an appropriate redistribution of the resources among the gynaecological and obstetrics departments is to be expected. The financial pressure that is caused by the generally inadequate financing of hospitals will not be reduced by a further development of the G-DRG system. PMID:24771931

    Full Text Available Riegl’s lecture about Maori ornament was held before the Anthropological Society in Vienna in 1890 and anticipates much of what he then said in his Stilfragen. After reiterating his milestone criticism of the ‘materialist’ theories of Semper and his followers, he suggests that the spiral motif was used for more profound and spontaneous reasons at the knee of a figure and the point of a canoe because of its complexity in being read in more than one direction, with and without other intervening elements. It seems to have arisen independently in various places with widely varying climates and cultures.

    The change from materialistic to postmaterialistic needs increasingly makes itself felt in the industrialised societies of the Western world. Problems such as the need for new definitions of the quality of life, new approaches questioning the relation between technical progress and social goals, and man's attitude towards nature have become topics of public concern. Policy makers more and more find themselves confronted with these questions. Energy policy and related strategies are taken as an example to illustrate the conflicts currently emerging in the search for new lines of orientation, and to explain the difficulties in finding ways and alternatives which are likely to be accepted as a comprise leading to new goals and values. The all in all ten authors do not foster an attitude of fundamental opposition; they rather elaborate proposals for compromising, sometimes admit not to be able to present answers for the time being, and always try to give a balanced view of the problems involved.

In the field of medical education, The Netherlands and Switzerland have developed national catalogues for undergraduate medical training, which are competence-based and compatible with a two-cycle curriculum comprised of a Bachelor in Medicine and a Master in Medicine. In Germany, virtually all medical organizations, last not least the Association of Medical Faculties (MFT, have voted against the application of the two-cycle (and the three-cycle curriculum to medical undergraduate education. A standstill of the European processes will not be accepted in the political arena, and a proposition was made by the Conference of German Ministers of Higher Education to develop a medical qualification framework for Germany, asking the Association for Medical Education (GMA and the MFT to join forces. This is not possible without consented national learning objectives derived from the professional context of physicians.

    The new Nuclear Power Act and the Nuclear Power Ordinance of 2005 are used in Switzerland to select a site of an underground geologic store for radioactive waste in a substantive planning procedure. The ''Underground Geologic Store Substantive Plan'' is to ensure the possibility to build underground geologic stores in an independent, transparent and fair procedure. The Federal Office for Energy (BFE) is the agency responsible for this procedure. The ''Underground Geologic Store'' Substantive Plan comprises these principles: - The long term protection of people and the environment enjoys priority. Aspects of regional planning, economics and society are of secondary importance. - Site selection is based on the waste volumes arising from the five nuclear power plants currently existing in Switzerland. The Substantive Plan is no precedent for or against future nuclear power plants. - A transparent and fair procedure is an indispensable prerequisite for achieving the objectives of a Substantive Plan, i.e., finding accepted sites for underground geologic stores. The Underground Geologic Stores Substantive Plan is arranged in two parts, a conceptual part defining the rules of the selection process, and an implementation part documenting the selection process step by step and, in the end, naming specific sites of underground geologic stores in Switzerland. The objective is to be able to commission underground geologic stores in 25 or 35 years' time. In principle, 2 sites are envisaged, one for low and intermediate level waste, and one for high level waste. The Swiss Federal Council approved the conceptual part on April 2, 2008. This marks the beginning of the implementation phase and the site selection process proper. (orig.)

    Based upon the recommendations of a panel of experts in 1968, the Joint FAO/IAEA Division of Atomic Energy in Food and Agriculture established an international programme to improve the protein content and quality in seed crops of importance to developing countries. Reports of previous meetings held under this programme have been published by the IAEA. The meeting on Seed Protein Improvement in Cereals and Grain Legumes, held in September 1978, marked the formal end of the FAO/IAEA/GSF Co-ordinated Research Programme on Seed Protein Improvement. It reviewed the progress achieved. Volume I covers 27 papers. Following a review of the world protein and nutritional situation, the contributions are grouped under the main headings of the need for and use of variability in protein characteristics; genetics, biochemistry and physiology of seed storage proteins; analytical and nutritional techniques; and coordinated research programmes under a joint FAO/IAEA/GSF programme on grain protein improvement. Individual papers of direct relevance are cited as separate entries in INIS.

    Plant breeders, molecular biologists, analytical chemists and nutritionists report on progress and achievements to date. High-lysine genotypes of maize, barley and sorghum have been produced. One high-protein variety of wheat is reported available for commercial use. Grain legumes already have high seed protein content but, compared to cereals, less of the total biological yield is available as seed, and intensive efforts are being made to produce genotypes with higher seed yield. Genetic variability is available from world germplasm collections and from induced-mutation programmes. In the basic sciences considerable advances are reported. Putative structural genes determining protein quality and quantity have been located on various chromosomes. In vitro synthesis of legume and cereal storage proteins and the isolation of some mRNA and the preparation and cloning of cDNA have been reported. Uptake and incorporation of N into amino acids, their synthesis into proteins, and interaction between protein and carbohydrate biosynthesis during seed development are discussed. Future prospects are considered including potential selection at the cellular rather than the whole plant level. In only a minority of the 64 papers is the use of nuclear techniques indicated specifically enough to justify individual entries in INIS.

Sie lässt jedoch eines vermissen: die Einlösung eines in der Geschlechtergeschichte seit langem reklamierten Forschungsdesiderats, nämlich eine sowohl theoretisch als auch methodisch profunde Auseinandersetzung mit den zu Leitbegriffen der Tagung erhobenen Kategorien „Erfahrung“ und „Diskurs”.

    This is a short report on the recent study by the Wuppertaler Institute (Executive Director: Prof. Dr. Ernst U. von Weizsaecker) under a mandate from the Swiss Working Group 'Solar 91' with the support of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. The conclusion is that energy efficiency and a broad market penetration of renewable energy sources would reduce unemployment in Switzerland by a factor of 2 and create at least 63,000 new jobs. Background for the publication of this report at the end of August 1999 was the Swiss parliament debate on new energy tax regulations to be submitted to the poles in the course of 2000. The two houses of the parliament had different opinions on the matter. [German] Eine Studie des Wuppertaler Institutes (unter der Leitung von Prof. Dr. Ernst U. von Weizsaecker) im Auftrag der Schweizerischen Arbeitsgemeinschaft 'Solar 91' und vom Bundesamt fuer Energie finanziell unterstuetzt, kommt zum Schluss, dass Energieeffizienz und eine breite Einfuehrung der erneuerbaren Energien die Arbeitslosigkeit halbieren und mindestens 63,000 neue Arbeitsstellen schaffen wuerde. Hintergrund der Publikation dieser Studie Ende August 1999 war die Differenzbereinigung der Solar- und der Energie/Umweltinitiative im Parlament. (author)

Die gleichzeitig gesicherte Frakturprävention ist bei der Behandlung des klimakterischen Syndroms ein erwünschter günstiger Nebeneffekt. Jede EET/HET muss individualisiert sein und soll nur solange erfolgen, als sie notwendig ist. Bei gegebener Indikation kann die EET oder HET über die üblichen 3–5 Jahre hinaus fortgesetzt werden. Bei vorzeitiger Menopause (vor dem 40. Altersjahr und früher Menopause (vor dem 45. Altersjahr besteht eine absolute Indikation zum Beginn einer EET/HET. Frauen mit vorzeitiger Ovarialinsuffizienz benötigen meist höhere Dosierungen als solche mit zeitgerechter Menopause.

Bei Beginn einer HET innerhalb von 10 Jahren nach der Menopause oder in einem Alter von bis zu 60 Jahren überwiegt bei gegebener Indikation der Nutzen die Risiken.

    2016-04-01

    Modern intensive care medicine is faced with large challenges which are not solely caused by medical-technical progress, but above all by the demographic and value-related changes of society and its citizens. Thereby, three central problem areas are of particular interest: the fragile effectiveness of a patient's right to self-determination at the end of life, the uncertainties regarding the demarcation of futility, and the question of the influence of economic considerations (rationing) in view of the different levels for the allocation of duties and execution of duties. This article contains the revised version of the lecture from June 18, 2015 on the occasion of the 47th annual joint conference of DGIIN (Deutschen Gesellschaft für Internistische Intensivmedizin und Notfallmedizin) and ÖGIAIN (Österreichischen Gesellschaft für Internistische und Allgemeine Intensivmedizin und Notfallmedizin) on the general subject: "quality and humanity".

  13. Three-dimensional thermal simulations of thin solid carbon foils for charge stripping of high current uranium ion beams at a proposed new heavy-ion linac at GSI

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available This paper presents an extensive numerical study of heating of thin solid carbon foils by 1.4  MeV/u uranium ion beams to explore the possibility of using such a target as a charge stripper at the proposed new Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung high energy heavy–ion linac. These simulations have been carried out using a sophisticated 3D computer code that accounts for physical phenomena that are important in this problem. A variety of beam and target parameters have been considered. The results suggest that within the considered parameter range, the target will be severely damaged by the beam. Thus, a carbon foil stripper does not seem to be a reliable option for the future Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung high energy heavy–ion linac, in particular, at FAIR design beam intensities.

  15. Free Riding or Trust?

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Svendsen, Gert Tinggaard; Nilsson, Jerker

    2011-01-01

    It is often observed that members have little interest in monitoring their cooperatives. One explanation is that the members are free-riders, hoping that others will perform the task. Another explanation is that the weak member interest is a consequence of members having trust in the leadership....... These competing explanations refer to the theory of collective action and the social capital paradigm, respectively, and may be linked to the classical Gesellschaft and Gemeinschaft concepts. Hence, one may expect free-rider behavior when conditions of Gesellschaft exist and trustful behavior when Gemeinschaft...... conditions rule. These propositions get support from five studies of members’ readership of their cooperatives’ annual reports. In large and heterogeneous memberships there is free-riding behavior, which explains the members’ low interest in governing their cooperatives. To a limited extent a membership may...

    ''Männliche'' Herrschaftsstrukturen sind innerhalb der gesamten Gesellschaft stark verbreitet. Dies spiegelt sich dementsprechend auch in Fußballfanszenen wider. Diese Arbeit untersucht daher die Konstruktion von Männlichkeit bei ''Ultras'', da diese mit ihrer starken Präsens und ihren aufwendigen Choreographien in Stadien großen Einfluss vor allem auf Jugendliche haben. Ziel der Untersuchung ist es, Mechanismen innerhalb der Fanszene aufzuzeigen um somit pädagogisch zu intervenieren, damit g...

    Dick, Wolfgang R.; Hamel, Jürgen

    This issue comprises talks presented 2000 September 18 at the colloquium ``International relations in astronomy'' it is supplemented by additional articles about this topic. The foundation of the international ``Vereinigte Astronomische Gesellschaft'', which took place in 1800 in Bremen, prompted us to investigate the development of astronomy in German-speaking regions, and its international relations during the 19th century. We investigate the activities of famous astronomers like W. Olbers, J.E. Bode, F.X. von Zach, J.H. Schroeter, H.C. Schumacher and K. Schwarzschild, as well as those of their less famous professional colleagues like J.G. Schrader and L. de Ball. The geographical spectrum extends from Bremen and Lilienthal over Kiel, Gotha and Dresden to Copenhagen, Vienna and Chile. Among the topics are: telescope construction, including telescopes made by Herschel, the rediscovery of the minor planet Ceres 1801/02, the Berlin ``Astronomisches Jahrbuch'', the foundation of the ``Astronomische Nachrichten'', the evolution from the ``Vereinigte Astronomische Gesellschaft'' to the present-day ``Astronomische Gesellschaft'', the research at the Kuffner Observatory in Vienna, the professionalization in astronomy, and the attempts of many countries to establish a southern observatory in Chile. A listing of astronomical monuments in Lilienthal and Bremen concludes the book. All papers are written in German with English abstracts.

    vorgezogene Entsorgungsgebuehr (VEG) finanziert wird. Eine schriftliche Umfrage bei 2000 schweizerischen Haushalten hat folgende Erkenntnisse geliefert: Wer Papier, Glas, PET, Aluminium, Gruenabfaelle und Weissblech recycliert, trennt auch haeufiger Altbatterien vom normalen Hausmuell. Es gibt genuegend Batteriensammelstellen, sie sind aber teilweise unzureichend gekennzeichnet. Die VEG sollte obligatorisch werden, damit die den zentralen Entsorgungsstellen vorgelagerten Batteriensammelstellen eine Entschaedigung erhalten koennten. Aus der Befragung wurde nicht klar ersichtlich, ob die Einfuehrung eines Pfandes auf Batterien die Ruecklaufquote erhoehen wuerde oder nicht. Bezueglich Werbung fuer das Batteriensammeln scheint einzig der von der BESO an alle Haushalte verschickte `Battery Bag` das Sammelverhalten der KonsumentInnen positiv zu beeinflussen, in geringem Masse auch Plakatwerbung. Aufrufe zum Sammeln in Zeitungen, Radio und Fernsehen haben keinen Einfluss auf die Sammeltaetigkeit ergeben. Hingegen beeinflussen Informationen und das Wissen um die Batterienthematik in diesem speziellen Falle das Sammelverhalten der Bevoelkerung positiv. (orig.)

  5. Vom Contrat Social zum Gesellschaftsvertragsrecht / From the Social Contract to a Social Contract Law

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2008-05-01

    Full Text Available Formen und Funktion des Verwaltungsvertrags in der fragmentierten Gesellschaft Aus einer kontinentalen Sicht, gestützt auf die langen Erfahrungen mit einer staatlich angeleiteten Legitimation der Staatsverwaltung, erkennt diese Untersuchung den beständigen Niedergang staatlicher Souveränität in der Moderne und folglich die zunehmende Diffusion des Staates in die Gesellschaft. Auf der Ebene der Staatstheorie wird dies durch einen Wechsel vom großen philosophischen Sozialvertrag zu vielen einzelnen rechtlichen Verträgen als dessen funktionales Äquivalent gespiegelt. Mit diesem Phänomen erhält das Verwaltungsrecht eine grundsätzlich neue Perspektive: Es stellt sich die Frage, wie mit Recht die Einheit einer Gesellschaft hervorgebracht werden kann, in welcher die Staatsverwaltung und die von ihr zu regulierenden Sozialbereiche sich einerseits fremd geworden sind und doch andererseits auf wechselseitige Ad-hoc-Kooperationen immer wieder von Neuem angewiesen sind. Forms and Function of Administrative Contracts in a Fragmented Society. Taking the viewpoint of the civil law tradition, which has traditionally assumed that the legitimacy of the administration is state-derived, this text recognises the constant decline of state sovereignty in modern times and consequently the increasing diffusion of the state into society. At the level of state theory, this reflects a shift from the great philosophical ‘social contract’ to many small legal contracts as its functional equivalent. Dealing with this phenomenon, administrative law needs to address the fundamental question of how law can sustainably support the unity of a society where the state administration and the various parts of society it has to govern are strange to each other and at the same time depending on mutual ad-hoc cooperation time and again.

    The return of HLW to Germany has started in 1996 with the first attribution of 28 glass canisters to German utilities by COGEMA. After several transports comprising 1, 2 and 6 flasks per shipment German and French Authorities requested to transport 12 flasks in a single shipment. The first of these 12-flask-transports was performed with the type CASTOR {sup registered} HAW 20/28 CG flask in 2002 and the second followed in 2003. COGEMA LOGISTICS is responsible for the overall transport assigned by GNS (Gesellschaft fuer Nuklear-Service mbH) being itself entrusted by the German utilities with the return of reprocessing residues.

    Walter, Wolfram M.

    Die Digitalisierung schreitet mit großen Schritten voran. Dies wirkt sich nicht nur auf die Gesellschaft im Grundsatz, sondern auch auf das Verhalten der Kunden aus. Neue Kommunikationswege beschleunigen die Interaktion zwischen Unternehmen und Verbraucher. Im Vergleich mit großen Internetfirmen werden etablierte Dienstleistungsunternehmen - vom Energieversorger bis zu Versicherungen - stark unter Druck gesetzt, sich noch intensiver mit dem Kundenservice auseinanderzusetzen. Dies wird nur möglich sein, wenn sich die Organisationen entsprechend positionieren und sich frühzeitig auf die Veränderungen einstellen. Hieraus ergeben sich mehr Chancen als Risiken, zumal es nicht nur neue Prozesse, sondern auch neue Berufsbilder geben wird.

    We study the structural and electronic properties of silicene on solid Ar(111) substrate using ab initio calculations. We demonstrate that due to weak interaction, quasi-freestanding silicene is realized in this system. The small binding energy of only meV per Si atom also indicates the possibility to separate silicene from the solid Ar(111) substrate. In addition, a band gap of 11 meV and a significant splitting of the energy levels due to spin-orbit coupling are observed. 2014 IOP Publishing Ltd and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft.

    Levels in 223Th populated by the α decay of 227U were investigated using α -γ decay spectroscopy. The 227U isotope was produced in the fusion-evaporation reaction 22Ne +208Pb at the velocity filter separator for heavy-ion reaction products at Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt (Germany). Several new excited levels and γ transitions were identified in 223Th . An improved α -decay scheme of 227U was suggested. The experimental α -decay energy spectrum of 227U was compared with the Monte Carlo simulation performed using the toolkit geant4.

    In the late production stages, water production from natural gas wells may become a problem that may require abandoning the well, thus losing valuable productive assets. In a joint project of organisations of the Deutsche Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft fuer Erdoel, Erdgas und Kohle, a status report was made in 2005, and best practice methods for dewatering natural gas wells were identified. This contribution presents some of the results: common methods for improved liquid unloading from natural gas wells, preconditions for their application, experience of the industries in this field, elements of the selection and planning process, and an outlook.

    On March 13,.2013 the Federal Office of Radiation Protection (BfS) published a note that the responsible group of the Helmholtz Zentrums Muenchen had finished the experiments in the socalled leaching test room at the 490 m level of the Asse II mine. In this room, the previous operator the Gesellschaft fuer Strahlen- und Umweltforschung mbH (GSF) carried out leaching and corrosion experiments with cemented full-scale samples. These experiments were performed since 1979 requested by the licensing authorities. With respect to the safety case for the Asse salt mine it was a need to demonstrate the transferability of results obtained by laboratory samples to real waste forms and to investigate the effects of the industrial cementation process an the properties of the waste forms. A research program was initiated by the Nuclear Research Centre Karlsruhe (today Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, KIT) and the Institut fuer Tieflagerung of the Gesellschaft fuer Strahlenforschung m.b.H. (GSF). Since 1996 the scientific supervision of the experiments were dedicated to the Institute for Nuclear Waste Disposal (INE) of KIT. Until 2013, the corroding solutions were sampled several times. In 2006 four full-scale samples were retrieved and investigated with respect to variations of the solids. After termination of the experiments in January 2013, radioactively doped samples were transferred to KIT-INE for final evaluations. The present report summarizes the background and objectives of the experiments as well as the results of the solutions and solid state analyses.

    After the Second World War the development of medical mycology in Germany had taken a very different course in the east and west parts depending on the political division. In this respect our contribution deals with the situation in the former German Democratic Republic. Efficient mycological centres were founded step by step almost in all medical universities on the basis of the mycological laboratories in dermatological hospitals competent for diagnostic work, but also for teaching and scientific research. In this context biologists were the main stay of mycology, they finally were integrated to the same degree in the universities like physicians. The effectiveness of the Gesellschaft für Medizinische Mykologie der DDR (GMM), its board of directors and its working groups as well as the topics of human and animal mycology during this period are described. Especially the merger of the GMM with the Deutschsprachige Mykologische Gesellschaft after the reunification of Germany without problems and the kind co-operation of Prof. Dr. Johannes Müller during this procedure are emphasized.

    D1-Simulator is operated by Kraftwerks-Simulator-Gesellschaft (KSG) and Gesellschaft f?r Simulatorschulung (GfS) at the Simulator Centre in Essen since 1977. The full-scope control room training simulator, used for Kernkraftwerk Biblis (KWB) is based on a PDP-11 hardware platform and is mainly programmed in ASSEMBLER language. The Simulator has reached a continuous high availability of operation throughout the years due to specialized hardware and software support from KSG maintenance team. Nevertheless, D1-Simulator largely reveals limitations with respect to computer capacity and spares and suffers progressively from the non-availability of hardware replacement materials. In order to ensure long term maintainability within the framework of the consensus on nuclear energy, a 2-years refurbishing program has been launched by KWB focusing on quality and budgetary aspects. The so-called D1+ Simulator project is based on the re-use of validated data from existing simulators. Allowing for flexible project management methods, the project outlines a cost and risk optimized approach to Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) Simulator modernization. D1+ Simulator is being built by KSG/GfS in close collaboration with KWB and the simulator vendor THALES by re-using a modern hardware and software development environment from D56-Simulator, used by Kernkraftwerk Obrigheim (KWO) before its decommissioning in 2005. The Simulator project, launched in 2004, is expected to be completed by end of 2006. (author)

    The Jewish physician and scientist Dr. Max Hirsch (1875-1941) made a substantial contribution to consolidation of the foundations of his professional discipline, balneology, and in particular developed the social aspects. He recognized the economic significance of diseases of the musculoskeletal system very early on and gathered important ideas from abroad. Together with the department head in the Prussian Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs, the Privy Councillor Prof. Dr. Eduard Dietrich and later alone, he was editor of various balneological journals. He worked as general secretary of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Rheumatologie (German Society of Rheumatology) from the beginning of its existence (1927) and created the publication series Veröffentlichungen der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Rheumabekämpfung (Publications of the German Society against Rheumatism) and Rheuma-Jahrbuch (Annual review of rheumatology) in 1929, 1930 and 1931 and organized seven rheumatology congresses up to 1933. After the accession to power of the National Socialists, Max Hirsch and Eduard Dietrich were deposed from office. Hirsch emigrated to Latvia via Switzerland and the Soviet Union with his wife and one son where they were murdered in the course of the Jewish pogrom. The second son escaped with his family to Sweden.

Most contributions do not duly treat gender-specific differentiation in age and aging through history and in the present.

    The present report - presented by the Gesellschaft fuer Strahlen- und Umweltforschung mbH, Muenchen in cooperation with the Gesellschaft fuer Kernforschung mbH, Karlsruhe - gives a survey of the 1973 work in the field of final storage of radioactive wastes. The mining and constructional work carried out aboveground and underground in the saline of Asse near Remlingen with a view to repair, maintenance and expansion for future tasks is discussed. Storage of slightly active wastes on the 750 m floor and the tentative storage of medium-activity wastes on the 490 m floor were continued in the time under review. In September, the multiple transport container S 7 V, developped in the GfK for transports of 7 200 l iron-hooped drums containing medium activity wastes, were employed in Asse for the first time. With two transports a week between Karlsruhe Nuclear Research Centre and the Asse mine, 14 drums were stored per week with a total of 233 drums at the end of the year. The report also gives information on the present state of research in the fields of mountain engineering geology and hydrology, and its results. In addition, new storage methods are mentioned which are still in the planning stage. (orig./AK) [de

  1. Estimation of the behaviour of artificial environmental radionuclides and the resulting population exposure in the vicinity of nuclear facilities, with particular regard to the ingestion of agricultural products

    To begin with, the method recommended by the Radiation Protection Commission for the calculation of ingested doses was analyzed, and the factors influencing the calculation were reviewed in the relevant literature. The main points of emphasis were the transfer factors. For all radionuclides contained in the model emission mixtures, calculation factors were compared with the results of enrichment experiments in the relevant literature. It was found that calculation factors were always either among the lowest transport factors given in the literature or even several orders of magnitude smaller than realistic experimental factors. In the experimental part, transfer factors were determined for the three elements Co, Mn, and Sr in various plants and soils. In most cases, these values were higher than those recommended by the Gesellschaft fuer Reaktorsicherheit and the Radiation Protection Commission. Radiation doses due to ingestion of various foodstuffs in the vicinity of a modern nuclear power plant (1300 MW PWR) were calculated in a model program. The radiation burden was calculated separately for adults and infants for various organs. Contrary to the experts' opinions by the Technische Ueberwachungsvereine and the Gesellschaft fuer Reaktorsicherheit usually presented in the licensing procedure, values significantly higher than the maximum permissible radiation exposure were found in many cases. It seems that radiation exposure is heightened by a number of factors which due to a lack of data, cannot be included in the computer program (e.g. effects of inversion conditions, atmospheric conditions of low wind force, cooling towers, etc.) (orig./MG) [de

    The German Diagnosis-Related Groups (DRG) System was further developed into its 2007 version. For orthopedic and trauma surgery, significant changes were made in terms of the coding of diagnoses and medical procedures, as well as in the DRG structure itself. The German Societies for Trauma Surgery and for Orthopedics and Orthopedic Surgery (Deutsch Gesellschaft für Unfallchirurgie, DGU; and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Orthopädie und Orthopädische Chirurgie, DGOOC) once again cooperated constructively with the German DRG Institute InEK. Among other innovations, new International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes for second-degree burns were implemented. Procedure codes for joint operations, endoprosthetic-surgery and spine surgery were restructured. Furthermore, a specific code for septic surgery was introduced in 2007. In addition, the DRG structure was improved. Case allocation of patients with more than one significant operation was established. Further DRG subdivisions were established according to the patients age and the Patient Clinical Complexity Level (PCCL). DRG developments for 2007 have improved appropriate case allocation, but once again increased the system's complexity. Clinicians need an ever growing amount of specific coding know-how. Still, further adjustments to the German DRG system are required to allow for a correct allocation of cases and funds.

  4. Review Essay: Controlled Openness

    Full Text Available The book reviewed here contains a written form of Niklas LUHMANN’s last lecture, delivered in winter term 1992/1993 at Bielefeld University, where he was professor for sociology from 1968 to 1993. A more comprehensive and systematic publication titled "Die Gesellschaft der Gesellschaft" was not published until 1997. In comparison to this and to other publications the present one provides an insight into the modality of the theoretical practice of LUHMANN. My review-essay follows up that point and reminds us that LUHMANN worked out his theory of society in view of a sociological problem he had conceived. He accused sociology of accumulating knowledge in a confusing way by empirical social research. His endeavour, in contrast, was to enable research within a consistent theoretical frame that was nevertheless open to expansive explorations. LUHMANN tries to achieve consistency through the reciprocal adjustment of his terms and his theoretical components, which should enable the construction of problems for comparison within global society. This means that his approach stays open for an empirical reality that remains to be explored because the theory of society does not deliver terms to categorize empirical reality. Instead, terms are conceptualized as distinctions with the function to construct problems that instruct observations and make them amenable to theorization. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0803237

    Prof. Kohn (1867-1959) was the head of the Institute of Histology at the Medical Faculty of German University in Prague for 26 years. In 2007 we commemorated his 140th birthday, and 2009 we will remember the 50th anniversary of his death. He entered the history of medicine by discovery of nature and origin of parathyroid glands and by pioneer research into chromaffin cells and sympathetic paraganglia. Kohn's papers on the pituitary, interstitial cells of testes, and ovaries are also related to endocrinology. All his studies are based on descriptive and comparative histological and embryological observations. Kohn was twice the dean of German Medical Faculty, and a member or honorary member of many important scientific societies. He was repeatedly nominated for Nobel Prize for physiology and medicine. For his Jewish origin he was expelled from Deutsche Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften und Künste für die Tschechoslowakische Republik in 1939 and transported to Terezin ghetto in 1943. After the war he lived in Prague. On the occasion of his 90th birthday he was elected honorary president of Anatomische Gesellschaft and awarded by the Czechoslovak Order of Labour. Alfred Kohn died in 1959. He was one of the outstanding personalities that Prague gave to the world of science.

Die SUVA nimmt nebst den Strahlenschutzaufgaben in den industriellen Betrieben auch die allgemeine Arbeitssicherheit wahr und hat Richtlinien zum Erstellen von Risikoanalysen erarbeitet. Bei diesen konventionellen Analysen werden die Arbeitsprozesse nach ihrem moeglichen Schadensausmass (Tod, schwere bleibende Gesundheitsschaden; leichter bleibender Gesundheitsschaden; heilbare Verletzung mit Arbeitsausfall; heilbare Verletzung ohne Arbeitsausfall) und der Eintretenswahrscheinlichkeit (haeufig; gelegentlich; selten; unwahrscheinlich; praktisch unmoeglich) in einer Risikomatrix beurteilt (grosse, mittlere und kleine Risiken). Die SUVA hat von zwei Baslern Isotopenlaboratorien des Typs B Risikobeurteilungen eingefordert, die einerseits die Gefaehrdung der Mitarbeiter und andererseits der Stadtbevoelkerung analysieren und radiologisch bewerten sollen. Fuer die Beurteilung des Mitarbeiterrisikos schlug sie vor, eine etablierte Methode aus der Arbeitssicherheit oder der Versicherungsbranche anzuwenden. Zudem muesse die Risikomatrix der von der Firmenleitung vorgegebenen Sicherheitskultur entsprechen. Damit standen wir vor dem Problem, radiologische Risiken, die sich als Strahlendosen in mSv ausdruecken lassen, fuer nicht radiologisch geschulte Manager mit den Folgen konventioneller Arbeitsunfaelle (Tod, Invaliditaet und Arbeitsausfall) bzw. mit den Reaktionen von Bevoelkerung und Politikern auf chemische Stoerfaelle zu vergleichen. Im Vortrag wird die aus Diskussionen mit der Aufsichtsbehoerde, der Firmenleitung, den Laborleitern und Labormitarbeitern entstandene Risikomatrix vorgestellt.

Der Beitrag versucht, die Erfolge der FPÖ bei Wahlen aus den Rahmenbedingungen des österreichischen politischen Systems und der österreichischen Gesellschaft zu erklären. Das als "hyperstabil" bezeichnete politische System Österreichs hat in den letzten 20 bis 25 Jahren signifikante Veränderungen durchgemacht. Die Erfolge der FPÖ sind eine Begleiterscheinung dieser Veränderungen - weder deren Ursache, noch deren Auslöser. Dies wird umso deutlicher, wenn die Veränderungen der österreichischen Gesellschaft und ihrer politischen Kultur in die Analyse einbezogen werden: Zuerst begann sich die Loyalität innerhalb der politisch-weltanschaulichen Lager aufzulösen - und dann erst begann der Aufstieg der FPÖ von einer kleinen, um Respektabilität bemühten Partei zu einer ihre Außenseiterrolle betonenden Protestpartei. Die Besonderheit der FPÖ, die sich auch in der europäischen Reaktion auf ihre Regierungsbeteiligung seit dem Februar 2000 äußerte, muss auch aus der Vorgeschichte der Zweiten Republik allgemein und der Freiheitlichen Partei im besonderen erklärt werden. Darin spiegelt sich auch der Zusammenhang zwischen der Entwicklung österreichischer Identität von einer transnationalen über eine deutschnationale zu einer spezifisch österreichischen nationalen Identität. Die in dieser Entwicklung zum Ausdruck kommenden Brüche werden in der Widersprüchlichkeit der FPÖ zugespitzt verdeutlicht: In ihren deutschnationalen Wurzeln verkörpert die FPÖ die Absage an die Konvergenz von Staat und Nation; in ihrer "populistischen" Orientierung ist die Partei aber österreichisch-patriotisch. Die FPÖ ist schließlich auch in der sozialen Struktur ihrer Wählerschaft zu begreifen: Die Partei artikuliert vor allem die Interessen der

    1976-10-01

    More and more realism replaces the initial euphoria concerning the discussion on solar heating. Not only the possibilities are considered these days, but also the limits of this still controversial way of heating. This impression was deepened by a meeting of the VDI-Gesellschaft Technische Gebaeudeausruestung (Society for the technical equipment of buildings) held in Bonn. The heating of water with solar energy during the summer is viewed optimistically by the experts - as far as space heating is concerned, the sun collector is conceded only a very modest position in Central Europe within integrated heating systems. It is true that solar technology in the USA is already very sophisticated and economically feasible in many cases; however, techniques cannot be adopted unconditionally for Europe, as the average values of global solar radiation are much lower here. Thus, different technologies will be required.

    2013-03-01

    Full Text Available Quality assurance and labeling play an important and increasing role in firms’ marketing strategies. In almost all cases, a price incentive has been stressed as the major incentive for firms to participate in such schemes. We argue here that important non-price incentives for participation in quality labeling may exist, too. In German retailing, it can be observed that discount retailers are listing more and more foods with quality labels. Processors may then participate in voluntary quality labeling in order to enter the large and growing market of discount retailers. The price-premium versus the market-entry hypothesis are analyzed theo-retically. We investigate then in an empirical hedonic pricing model for the German fruit juice market and for participation in the quality label of the Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft (DLG which of the two hypotheses is consistent with the data. There is strong support for the market-entry hypothesis

    1985-01-01

    The lectures held at the meeting of the fuel element section of the Kerntechnische Gesellschaft gives a survey of developments in fuel element structure design for PWR-type, BWR-type and fast breeder reactors. For better utilization of the fuel, concepts have been developed for re-usable, removable and thus repairable fuel elements. Furthermore, the manufacturing methods for fuel element structures were refined to achieve better quality and more efficient manufacturing methods. Statements on the dimensional behaviour and on the mechanical stability of fuel element structures in normal and accident operation could be made on the basis of post-irradiation inspections. Finally, the design, manufacture and irradiation behaviour of graphite reflectors in HTGR-type reactors are described. The 12 lectures have been recorded in the data base separately. (RF) [de

    1987-01-01

    In view of the persisting and understandable fear of parents with regard to radioactivity in the food of their babies as a consequence of the Chernobyl reactor accident, the Commission on Nutrition of the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Kinderheilkunde (German Society of Pediatrics) and the Strahlenschutzkommission have published a statement. According to this statement, the maximum permissible level of radioactivity in commercial baby food has been fixed by the EC to be 370 Bq/kg. The dietetic food industry itself has fixed a maximum for its products which is only a tenth of the radioactivity level permitted by the EC directive. The milk powders for infants tested since the reactor accident contained no measurable radioactivity or only very low amounts of Cs 134 or Cs 137, correspondung to a maximum of 25 Bq/kg in the product. Late damage to health is not to be expected. (orig./ECB) [de

    The coal-winning system developed by Bochumer Eisenhuette Heintzmann GmbH Co. KG consists essentially of a round link chain running continuously in one direction, on which both the coal-winning bodies and drivers are mounted. The coal-winning bodies, which are subdivided into two groups, are returned in the face conveyor. Consequently the cutting forces are reduced and continuous coal winning achieved. The chain return strands are also dispensed with in the coal-winning system and the chain is easily accessible. The system has undergoine comprehensive coal-winning tests on various artificial faces at DMT Gesellschaft fur Forschung und Prufung GmbH, whereby advantages emerged compared to conventional ploughing. Favourable resistance coefficients were determined in conveyance tests with run-of-mine coal. Loading tests on the components were successful and numerous detailed improvements to the design were made in conjunction with the manufacturer. 4 figs.

    Narayan, Awadhesh

    2015-03-12

    © 2015 IOP Publishing Ltd and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft. We demonstrate single atom anisotropic magnetoresistance on the surface of a topological insulator, arising from the interplay between the helical spin-momentum-locked surface electronic structure and the hybridization of the magnetic adatom states. Our first-principles quantum transport calculations based on density functional theory for Mn on Bi2Se3 elucidate the underlying mechanism. We complement our findings with a two dimensional model valid for both single adatoms and magnetic clusters, which leads to a proposed device setup for experimental realization. Our results provide an explanation for the conflicting scattering experiments on magnetic adatoms on topological insulator surfaces, and reveal the real space spin texture around the magnetic impurity.

    Mobility and progress have caused depletion of resources, air pollution, noise and stress resulting from increasing traffic. Ecological and health effects impose limits on mobility. Solutions are offered by intelligent traffic concepts (task sharing between transportation systems, logistics and telecommunication, sustainable mobility, environment-friendly transportation systems and measures for traffic reduction) and, best of all, by preventing traffic. This, however, necessitates a new concept of mobility. (GL) [Deutsch] Mobilitaet und Fortschritt fuehren in die Sackgasse: Resourcenverbrauch, Luftverschmutzung, Laerm und Stress erfolgen durch wachsendes Verkehrsaufkommen.

    2012-07-01

    This article tackles the issue of the development related to the insertion of new renewable energy technologies. It also presents the experience of the region of the Sao Francisco River Valley - named after the largest river genuinely Brazilian located in the semi-arid region -, focusing mainly on two municipalities: Xique-Xique and Barra. Its focus is the use of solar energy for rural communities. To present the results of that experience, the support of the Rio Sao Francisco Project: culture, identity and development, of the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and of Eurosolar was essential. The research on which this article is based was fruit of a volunteer research project linked to the Partners of the Americas Bahia-Pennsylvania Committee.

  15. The Theory of Industrial Society and Cultural Schemata: Does the "Cultural Myth of Stigma" Underlie the WHO Schizophrenia Paradox?

    Pescosolido, Bernice A; Martin, Jack K; Olafsdottir, Sigrun; Long, J Scott; Kafadar, Karen; Medina, Tait R

    2015-11-01

    The WHO's International Studies of Schizophrenia conclude that schizophrenia may have a more benign course in "developing" societies than in the West. The authors focus on this finding's most common corollary: cultural schemata are shaped by the transition from agrarian to industrial society. Developing societies are viewed as traditional, gemeinschaft cultures lacking the stigmatizing beliefs about persons with mental illness held in modern, gesellschaft cultures of developed societies. The Stigma in Global Context-Mental Health Study formalized the cultural myth of public stigma (CMPS) with propositions linking level of development to intolerant, exclusionary, and individualistic attitudes. In 17 countries, the authors find no support for the corollary; where support is found, the findings are opposite expectations, with developed societies reporting lower stigma levels. Reconceptualizing of the cultural landscape on more specific dimensions also produces null or contrary findings. This correction to nostalgic myths of cultural context in developing societies thwarts misguided treatment, policy, and stigma-reduction efforts.

    Full Text Available Im Rahmen eines Seminars an der HTW Chur wurden Möglichkeiten und Grenzen von Bibliothekspolitik in der Schweiz erläutert. Ausgehend von wenigen Fällen, bei denen es zu Protesten oder anderen Aktivitäten gekommen ist, wurden Akteurinnen und Akteure und ihr Einfluss untersucht, mögliche politische Instrumente analysiert und diskutiert, wie sich Bibliotheken aktiv beteiligen können. Im Ergebnis stellte sich heraus, dass Netzwerke in die Gesellschaft und die Politik von grosser Bedeutung sind. Im Falle eines Konflikts (Budgetkürzung, geplante Schliessung etc. kann sich dieses Netzwerk mit Hilfe der geeigneten politischen Instrumente für die Bibliothek einsetzen. Die Mobilisierung der Bevölkerung, die in den untersuchten Fällen klar auf der Seite der Bibliotheksanliegen war, ist dabei ein entscheidender Erfolgsfaktor.

    2002-01-01

    The prototype of a primary standard has been developed, built and tested, which enables the realization of the unit of the absorbed dose to water for beta brachytherapy sources. In the course of the development of the prototype, the recommendations of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Task Group 60 (TG60) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Medizinische Physik (DGMP) Arbeitskreis 18 (AK18) were taken into account. The prototype is based on a new multi-electrode extrapolation chamber (MEC) which meets, in particular, the requirements on high spatial resolution and small uncertainty. The central part of the MEC is a segmented collecting electrode which was manufactured in the clean room center of PTB by means of electron beam lithography on a wafer. A precise displacement device consisting of three piezoelectric macrotranslators has been incorporated to move the wafer collecting electrode against the entrance window. For adjustment of the wafer collecting electrode parallel to the entranc...

    Full Text Available Harninkontinenz ist verbunden mit körperlichen Beeinträchtigungen, psychosozialen Problemen und ökonomischen Kosten. Diese Belastungen für den Betroffenen, aber auch für die Gesellschaft beinhalten erhebliche "Kosten", die bisher viel zu wenig untersucht und dargestellt wurden. Die Dimension des Kostenproblems übersteigt bereits bei Teilerfassungen alle Vorstellungen. Dabei stellen aufgrund der hohen Tabuisierung der Inkontinenz diese Teilerfassungen wiederum nur Teilkosten dar. Von Bedeutung für die Beeinflussung der Kosten sind ohne Zweifel erfolgreiche Diagnostik und Therapie. Die Qualität der eingesetzten Hilfsmittel beinhaltet ebenfalls eine mögliche Beeinflussung der Kosten. Studien zur Kostenerfassung der Inkontinenzproblematik sind bei der vermuteten bzw. angedeuteten Größenordnung dringlich notwendig.

    Full Text Available Nicht nur Fachleute beklagen die mangelnde Qualität der deutschen Filme und Werbespots. Eine Ursache für die mangelnden Erfolge solcher mediatisierten Kommunikation liegt in einer systematischen Interaktionsstörung zwischen der Medienpraxis und Medienforschung. Die aktuelle deutschsprachige Medienwirkungsforschung entzieht sich weitgehend der gebotenen und von Macher/innen erwarteten gesellschafts- und praxisdienenden Aufgabe. Der Hauptgrund hierfür liegt darin, dass die zumeist zugrunde gelegten Forschungsrahmen (conceptual frameworks praxisrelevante Kategorien wie die der Zuschauerperspektive weitgehend ignorieren. Das hier vorgestellte interaktionistische Modell der mediatisierten Kommunikation will deshalb als Forschungsrahmen den Blick auf Übersehenes richten. Darüber hinaus soll dieses Modell auch für Praktiker als Prüfschema zur Mediaplanung dienen, mediatisierte Kommunikation - gemessen am eigenen Anspruch - kalkulierbarer und damit auch erfolgreicher zu machen.

    2015-08-01

    In recent years, a plethora of novel therapeutic approaches to fight signs of aging and to influence external body appearance have become available in aesthetic dermatology. Extensive research in this field has led to advanced understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the aging face. To successfully address the complex age-related alterations anti-aging treatment nowadays calls for a multi-faceted approach. Most frequently utilized aesthetic procedures include the use of botulinum toxin, a variety of filling substances, microneedling (collagen induction therapy), chemical peeling, lasers, radiofrequency, thread facelift and injectional lipolysis with phosphatidylcholine/deoxycholate among others. Unfortunately, many clinicians still lack in-depth understanding of potential complications, risk factors and side effects associated with minimal-invasive procedures. The following review aims to give a broad overview of nowadays most frequently used approaches in the dermato-aesthetic field and their related complications. © 2015 Deutsche Dermatologische Gesellschaft (DDG).

    The dynamically loaded components of combustion engines undergo wear during operation as a function of the operating points and the operating parameters selected. Radionuclide measurement methods developed in the Federal Republic of Germany in the LIT laboratory of Gesellschaft fuer Kernforschung allow to determine the wear of machine components during operation, contrary to conventional length measurement techniques. In the first part of this work the existing wear problems will be analyzed and investigations will be made into the capacities of conventional and radionuclide measurement methods. Based on this, a cost-benefit analysis system was developed for evaluation under technical and economical aspects of the use of different measurement methods allowing to solve detailed wear problems. This system furnishes results on the respective optimum wear measurement method relating to the actual problem and taking into account the relevant technical and economical boundary conditions.

    The diagnostic workup of cutaneous fungal infections is traditionally based on microscopic KOH preparations as well as culturing of the causative organism from sample material. Another possible option is the detection of fungal elements by dermatohistology. If performed correctly, these methods are generally suitable for the diagnosis of mycoses. However, the advent of personalized medicine and the tasks arising therefrom require new procedures marked by simplicity, specificity, and swiftness. The additional use of DNA-based molecular techniques further enhances sensitivity and diagnostic specificity, and reduces the diagnostic interval to 24-48 hours, compared to weeks required for conventional mycological methods. Given the steady evolution in the field of personalized medicine, simple analytical PCR-based systems are conceivable, which allow for instant diagnosis of dermatophytes in the dermatology office (point-of-care tests). © 2016 Deutsche Dermatologische Gesellschaft (DDG).

    Measured values of the radiation exposure of patients by urography published in the literature are summarized and critically reviewed. The gonad dose to men, women and children has been determined in 6 series of measurements performed according to the recommendations of the Gesellschaft fuer Medizinische Radiologie. Altogether, the determination of the gonad dose based on 927 individual measurements, 230 of them intravaginally, on 226 patients. The surface dose has been determined from 335 measurements. With exact collimation and shielding values of 250 mR for men and 650 mR for women have been obtained as the most probable ones. For 350,000 urographs equally distributed to both sexes and performed under correct working conditions an average per capita dose of 9.2 mR would result. (author)

    2008-07-01

    The GRS (Gesellschaft fuer Reaktorsicherheit) study aims to the identification of suitable indicators for repositories in salt and clay formation. It is not intended to compare the two formations with respect to the safe disposal of radioactive waste. A first set of safety and performance indicators for both host rocks has been derived on the basis of results of the SPIN project. Reference values for the safety indicators have been determined. The suitability of the indicators and their significance for different time frames Is demonstrated by means of deterministic model calculations and external parameter variations of previous studies. The safety indicators considered in the report are the effective dose rate (Sv/a), the radiotoxicity concentration in the biosphere water (Sv/m 3 ) and the radiotoxicity flux from the geosphere (overlying rock) (Sv/a). The performance indicators considered in the study are the radiotoxicity inventory in different compartments (S), radiotoxicity fluxes from compartments and the integrated radiotoxicity fluxes from compartments (Sv).

    Schipperges, H

    1977-01-01

    In the first, historical part the most important programs of "Medical Enlightenment", are pointed out, beginning with Leibniz, followed by the public health movement of the 18th century, up to the time of Immanuel Kant. Based on this historical background several concepts of a "Medical Culture" are analysed in detail, for instance the "Theorie einer Medizinal-Ordnung" by Johann Benjamin Ehrhard (1800), the "Medicinische Reform" by Rudolf Virchow (1848) and the programs of the "Gesellschaft Deutscher Naturforscher und Arzte" (about 1850-1890), the latter bearing both scientific and political character. Following the historical part, the question is raised whether "Enlightenment" is limited by medicine and whether medicine is able to provide a program for individual health education resulting in a more cultivated style of private life, and lastly how this might be realized.

  4. Implosion of multilayered cylindrical targets driven by intense heavy ion beams.

    Piriz, A R; Portugues, R F; Tahir, N A; Hoffmann, D H H

    2002-11-01

    An analytical model for the implosion of a multilayered cylindrical target driven by an intense heavy ion beam has been developed. The target is composed of a cylinder of frozen hydrogen or deuterium, which is enclosed in a thick shell of solid lead. This target has been designed for future high-energy-density matter experiments to be carried out at the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung, Darmstadt. The model describes the implosion dynamics including the motion of the incident shock and the first reflected shock and allows for calculation of the physical conditions of the hydrogen at stagnation. The model predicts that the conditions of the compressed hydrogen are not sensitive to significant variations in target and beam parameters. These predictions are confirmed by one-dimensional numerical simulations and thus allow for a robust target design.

    The article is about a joint project between Germany and Senegal for the 'testing and propagation of photovoltaic solar power systems', sponsored by Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ). The project, scheduled at present for a duration of five years (1987-1991), receives grants of just under DM 21 million and is to demonstrate to the rural population of the Western African state of Senegal how to meet their basic electric power demand for lighting, radio and television, because only a fraction of the more than 13 000 Senegalese villages may expect to be connected to the national power grid during the decades to come. Distances are too long and consumption rates too small to erect a conventional power grid at reasonable cost in this large country covering 200 000 km{sup 2} and populated by just under 10 million inhabitants only.

    2007-01-01

    We investigated the possibilities and problems of beam strippers in the different heavy ion accelerator components of a possible rare isotope accelerator (RIA) facility. We focused on two beam stripping positions in the RIA heavy ion driver where benchmark currents of up to 5 particle μA 238 U were projected at energies of 10.5 MeV/u and 85 MeV/u, respectively. In order to select feasible stripper materials, data from experiments with uranium beams at the Texas A and M cyclotron and the Gesellschaft fuer Schwerionenforschung (GSI) accelerator were evaluated. Based on these results thermal estimates for a possible design were calculated and cooling simulations with commercially available software performed. Additionally, we performed simulations with the GEANT4 code on evaluating the radiation environment for our beam stripping solution at the 85 MeV/u position in the RIA driver

    Rothfuchs, T.

    1986-01-01

    Deep geological formations especially rock salt formations, are considered worldwide as suitable media for the final disposal of radioactive high-level waste (HLW). In the Federal Republic of Germany, the Institut fur Tieflagerung of the Gesellschaft fur Strahlen- und Umweltforschung mbH Munchen operates the Asse Salt Mine as a pilot facility for testing the behavior of an underground nuclear waste repository. The tests are performed using heat and radiation sources to simulate disposed HLW canisters. The measured data obtained since 1965 show that the thermomechanical response of the salt formation and the physical/chemical changes in the vicinity of disposal boreholes are not a serious concern and that their long-term consequences can be estimated based on theoretical considerations and in-situ investigations

    2007-01-01

    In a treatment planning of heavy-ion radiotherapy, it is necessary to estimate the biological effect of the heavy-ion beams. Physical dose should be associated with the relative biological effectiveness (RBE) at each point. Presently, carbon ion radiotherapy has been carried out at the National Institute Radiological Sciences (NIRS) in Japan and the Gesellschaft fuer Schwerionenforschung mbH (GSI) in Germany. Both facilities take individual approach for the calculation of the RBE value. At NIRS, the classical LQ model has been used while the local effect model (LEM) has been incorporated into the treatment planning system at GSI. The first aim of this study is to explain the RBE model of NIRS by the microdosimetric kinetic model (MKM). In addition, the clarification of similarities and differences between the MKM and the LEM was also investigated. (author)

  14. A simple model for skewed species-lifetime distributions

    KAUST Repository

    Murase, Yohsuke

    2010-06-11

    A simple model of a biological community assembly is studied. Communities are assembled by successive migrations and extinctions of species. In the model, species are interacting with each other. The intensity of the interaction between each pair of species is denoted by an interaction coefficient. At each time step, a new species is introduced to the system with randomly assigned interaction coefficients. If the sum of the coefficients, which we call the fitness of a species, is negative, the species goes extinct. The species-lifetime distribution is found to be well characterized by a stretched exponential function with an exponent close to 1/2. This profile agrees not only with more realistic population dynamics models but also with fossil records. We also find that an age-independent and inversely diversity-dependent mortality, which is confirmed in the simulation, is a key mechanism accounting for the distribution. © IOP Publishing Ltd and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft.

    2001-01-01

    This article presents the proceeding that has been followed in the EPR (European pressurized water reactor) project concerning physical protection against malevolent actions and robbery of nuclear materials. Before the different options of the nuclear island were definitely set, a task group had been constituted to examine if these options could hamper the setting of physical protection measures that are required by the legislation of the 2 countries. Another group composed of experts from IPSN/GRS (Institut de Protection et de Surete Nucleaire / Gesellschaft fur Anlagen und Reaktorsicherheit) had the task to define common requirements concerning the physical protection of reactors in Germany and in France. In this framework the EPR project team has prepared a technical document reviewing the different dispositions that have been retained to assure the physical protection of the reactor. (A.C.)

  16. For a historical-sociological approach to the city of Haifa

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Roberto Cipriani

    2017-12-01

    Full Text Available The city of Haifa, in the northern part of Israel, has been the theatre of harsh clashes between Jews and Muslims for many years. Haifa was heavy involved in the Great Arab Revolt of 1936-1939 and during the 1948 the Palestinian population, about 80.000 people, was evacuated by the Jewish militias. After the establishment of the State of Israel, several terror attacks took place in the city. Today, several religious groups live in Haifa, with non easy relations. Nevertheless, each year the city celebrates the Holyday of Holydays, an interfaith festival. The city presents significant traits that may help us test Tönnies’s idea of a dichotomy between community (Gemeinschaft and society (Gesellschaft. In different moments of city life, we find features typical of community and, in certain others, characteristics typical of society.

    The explanations, which have been given in the talk are supposed to reveal, that the aim of the marketing for electric-powered vehicles is not to carry the idea of environmental protection into the society. It is far more important to use the power of the present environmental consciousness in order to guarantee the consumers demands for mobility, taking into consideration the ecological interests.

    In early 1995, 425 nuclear power stations with an installed capacity of 360 263 MW were in operation in 30 countries of the world, and a total of 60 units with a capacity of 53 580 MWe were being cnstructed in 18 countries. The supply of nuclear fuels to these nuclear power stations was the central issue of the Topfuel '95 - Topical Meeting on Nuclear Fuel. More than 350 experts from 23 countries had been invited to Wuerzburg by the Kerntechnische Gesellschaft (KTG) and the European Nuclear Society (ENS). The conference was accompanied by an exhibition at which twelve inernational fuel cycle enterprises presented their products, processes, and problem solutions. The poster session in the hall of the Cogress Center Wuerzburg exhibited 42 contributions which are be discussed in the second part of the conference report. (orig./UA) [de

    2014-01-01

    This report from the Stereotactic Radiotherapy Working Group of the German Society of Radiation Oncology (Deutschen Gesellschaft fuer Radioonkologie, DEGRO) provides a definition of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) that agrees with that of other international societies. SBRT is defined as a method of external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) that accurately delivers a high irradiation dose to an extracranial target in one or few treatment fractions. Detailed recommendations concerning the principles and practice of SBRT for early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are given. These cover the entire treatment process; from patient selection, staging, treatment planning and delivery to follow-up. SBRT was identified as the method of choice when compared to best supportive care (BSC), conventionally fractionated radiotherapy and radiofrequency ablation. Based on current evidence, SBRT appears to be on a par with sublobar resection and is an effective treatment option in operable patients who refuse lobectomy. (orig.) [de

    1982-06-01

    Experiments with accelerated heavy ions may contribute to the understanding of biological radiation action. After outlining the theoretical background experiments are described which were carried out at the UNILAC-machine (Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung, Darmstadt, Germany) where ions up to uranium can be accelerated to maximal specific energies of 10 MeV/u. Yeast cells served as biological test systems with the synthesis of ribosomal RNA (r-RNA), colony-forming ability and mutation induction as experimental endpoints. A relationship between action and energy deposition by individual particles can be demonstrated for the inhibition of r-RNA synthesis, in other cases the ion energy plays also an important role indicating that the interaction of δ-electrons from different particles contributes significantly to the biological effect.

    2002-01-01

    While beam loss issues have hardly been considered in detail for heavy ion fusion scenarios, recent heavy ion machine developments in different labs (European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), Gesellschaft fur Schwerionenforschung (GSI), Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Physics (ITEP), Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC)) have shown the great importance of beam current limitations due to ion losses. Two aspects of beam losses in heavy ion accelerators are theoretically considered: (1) secondary neutron production due to lost ions, and (2) vacuum pressure instability due to charge exchange losses. Calculations are compared and found to be in good agreement with measured data. The application to a Heavy-Ion Driven Inertial Fusion (HIDIF) scenario is discussed. 12 Refs.

    Bromodomain and extra-terminal domain (BET) inhibition has emerged recently as a potential therapeutic target for the treatment of many human disorders such as atherosclerosis, inflammatory disorders, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), some viral infections, and cancer. Since the discovery of the two potent inhibitors, I-BET762 and JQ1, different research groups have used different techniques to develop novel potent and selective inhibitors. In this review, we will be concerned with the trials that used fragment-based drug discovery (FBDD) approaches to discover or optimize BET inhibitors, also showing fragments that can be further optimized in future projects to reach novel potent BET inhibitors. © 2017 Deutsche Pharmazeutische Gesellschaft.

  7. Full speed ahead into a blind alley?; Mit Vollgas in die Sackgasse?

    Berke, C.

    1999-01-01

    For many decades, Dr. Claus Berke worked at the interface of technology and politics. This is particularly true of nuclear technology. Between 1985 and 1989, he was Chairman of the Kerntechnische Gesellschaft; between 1989 and 1995, President of the Deutsches Atomforum. In Brussels, he was President of Foratom for a period of two years. Dr. Berke has been distinguished by a number of awards for his services. The Kerntechnische Gesellschaft has now appointed him its Honorary Member in recognition of his commitment to nuclear technology. The article is an excerpt from a speech made by Dr. Berke to the KTG at the awarding ceremony. Dr. Berke deals with the question why the acceptance of nuclear power in this country has become so negative, in contrast to the situation with our main competitors on the world market, especially France. He traces the growth of ideologies in the German political party scene, which resulted in destroying national unity in this important issue for the future. He feels that one of the major reasons for this development lies in the considerable loss of reputation and influence in the German public of science and engineering over the past thirty years. The situation with our French neighbors is quite different. Already French schools attach particular importance to mathematics, biology, physics, and chemistry. As a consequence, technical and scientific curricula are very attractive in France, while Germany is heading toward the paradoxical situation that industry will soon be short of more than ten thousand young engineers annually, while German universities produce a surplus of humanists for whom there will often be no proper jobs.

    IPSN (Nuclear Protection and Safety Institute) and GRS (Gesellschaft fur Anlagen und Reaktorsicherheit Schwertnergasse 1) are developing the ESCADRE-ASTEC systems of codes devoted to the prediction of the behaviour of water-cooled reactors during a severe accident. The RALOC-mod 4 code belongs to this system and is specifically devoted to containment thermal-hydraulics studies. IPSN has designed a Thermal Hydraulic Containment Test Program in support to the Phebus Fission Product Test Program/2/. Evaporation tests have been recently performed in the Phebus containment test facility. The objective of this work is to assess against these tests the capability of the RALOC -mod 4 code to capture the phenomena observed in these experiments and more particularly the evaporation heat transfer and wall heat transfers.

    2002-07-01

    Full Text Available In diesem Beitrag wird Globalisierung als Prozess der Umstellung von Bezugssystemen des Denkens und Handelns von "Staat" auf "Welt" konzipiert. Von der klassischen Definition des Nationalstaates ausgehend, werden zuerst drei staatszentrierte Bezugssysteme (Rechtsstaat, Sozialstaat, Territorialstaat skizziert. Im zweiten Schritt werden globale Bezugssysteme (Welt als einheitlicher Markt, als Gefüge von Herrschaftsgebilden, als Konglomerat von Kulturen umrissen. Die Argumentation läuft darauf hinaus, zu zeigen, dass es sich bei diesen Konzeptionen keineswegs um geschlossene und harmonische Gesellschafts- und Weltbilder handelt; vielmehr enthält jedes der sechs Bezugsysteme spezifische Spannungs- und Konfliktlinien, aus denen sich ihre jeweilige Dynamik speist. Im dritten Schritt werden Prozesse der Umstellung der Bezugssysteme in Richtung Globalität auf drei Ebenen analysiert: auf der Ebene umfassender historischer Prozesse, auf der Ebene staatlichen Handelns und auf der Ebene individueller Akteure.

    The DRUFAN 01/Mod 2 developed by Gesellschaft fur Reaktorsicherheit (GRS) mbh to simulate thermohydraulic behavior of the primary circuit of PWR reactors, during the despressurization phase and initial refilling phase of loss of coolant accidents by great ruptures, is presented. The program simulates the system to be analysed by control volumes-concentrated parameters model - and it is based on numerical solution of conservation equations for mass of water, mass of vapor, quantities of motion and energy, and on the control volume homogeneity hypothesis. The possibilities of thermodynamic disequilibrium, determining mass transfer between liquid and vapor phases assuming that one saturated phase, are considered. The process of computer code implantation in the Honeywell Bull 64 DPS 7 system at CNEN, the modifications done into the program and the application to the despressurization phase analysis of a loss of coolant accident at Angra-2 and Angra-3 reactors are considered.

    The research group at the Gesellschaft fuer Schwerionenforschung highly appreciates the efforts of the International Union of Applied Chemistry and the International Union of Applied Physics to solve the longstanding problem of the priority of discovery of the heaviest elements by appointing the Transfermium Working Group. This international group of renowned experts in nuclear physics and chemistry, headed by Sir Denys Wilkinson, established criteria for the discovery of a new element and on the basis judged on the priorities of the discoveries of the transfermium elements. Members of this group were scientists from countries not involved in the discovery of a new element. The criteria for the discovery of new elements were developed after a careful study of the literature and after visits to the involved laboratories. Permanent contact was established with the researchers concerned by distributing the protocols of the TWG meetings. Only this procedure made it possible that the criteria were adapted to the most recent experimental developments. (Author)

    1999-10-01

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is one of the most frequent neuromuscular diseases in adults. Chronic respiratory failures is an almost compulsory symptom in the progression of this disease, and in association with pulmonary infections, responsible for the majority of deaths. We report on a series of 43 patients. An advanced stage of clinical disease was seen in half of them. After detection of respiratory failure corresponding to the guidelines of muscle centres of the DGM (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Muskelerkrankungen), seven patients (16.3%) were willing to be provided with a system for intermittent non-invasive ventilation. All patients achieved stabilisation of respiratory function, both with respect to the normalisation of arterial gases and subjective improvement of well-being. During the course of treatment four patients deliberately underwent permanent invasive ventilation. In our opinion home ventilation is a valid additional tool in the palliative treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The treatment, however, must be supported by an interdisciplinary team.

  5. Network measurements at the heavy ion synchrotron SIS at GSI

    1999-01-01

    The Heavy Ion Synchrotron SIS forms together with the Linear Accelerator UNILAC and the Storage Ring ESR the accelerator complex of the Gesellschaft fuer Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt. It accelerates heavy ions up to Uranium to 1 GeV/amu. The accelerators and beamlines have been surveyed and aligned using the TASA method. For SIS a network was established in order to survey the synchrotron with the TASA method. Goal of a diploma thesis was to establish an alternative network for a Laser Tracker instrument and to reach error ellipsoids below 30 μm. In this paper a comparison of the two methods is given. Since the Tracker measurements are done automatically only one person is needed. That reduces the man power. Time consumption for both methods is about the same, although much more network points were used with the Laser Tracker method. As a consequence of the larger number of network points the homogeneity of the results is better. (authors)

    The heaviest nuclei yet, with atomic numbers of 111 and 110, have been synthesized at the GSI (Gesellschaft fur Schwerionenforschung) heavy ion Laboratory, Darmstadt. The breakthrough was made by an international group (GSI/Dubna/ Bratislava/Jyvaeskylae) including Peter Armbruster and Sigurd Hofmann using the SHIP separator for heavy reaction products. This group has already discovered the elements 107, 108 and 109 at GSI. The element 110 experiment initially fused nickel 62 ions accelerated in the GSI UNILAC on a lead 208 target. The resulting nuclei were sorted by SHIP'S velocity filter and an alpha-decay chain could be unambiguously assigned to 269/110. In the Periodic Table, this new nucleus is a heavier cousin of nickel, palladium and platinum. Subsequently, irradiation of bismuth 209 with nickel 64 produced 272/111, exactly on the 25th anniversary of GSI's founding on 17 December 1969.

    The final beam transport in the reactor chamber for heavy ion fusion in preformed plasma channels offers many attractive advantages compared to other transport modes. In the past few years, experiments at the Gesellschaft fuer Schwerionenforschung (GSI) accelerator facility have addressed the creation and investigation of discharge plasmas, designed for the transport of intense ion beams. Stable, self-standing channels of 50 cm length with currents up to 55 kA were initiated in low-pressure ammonia gas by a CO 2 -laser pulse along the channel axis before the discharge is triggered. The channels were characterized by several plasma diagnostics including interferometry and spectroscopy. We also present first experiments on laser-guided intersecting discharges

    Proteins play a vital role within the human body by regulating various functions and even serving as structural constituent of many body parts. In this context, protein-based therapeutics have attracted a lot of attention in the last few decades as potential treatment of different diseases. Due to the steadily increasing interest in protein-based therapeutics, different dosage forms were investigated for delivering such complex macromolecules to the human body. Here, electrospun fibers hold a great potential for embedding proteins without structural damage and for controlled release of the protein for therapeutic applications. This review provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of protein-based carrier systems using electrospun fibers, with special emphasis on discussing their potential and key challenges in developing such therapeutic strategies, along with a prospective view of anticipated future directions. © 2017 Deutsche Pharmazeutische Gesellschaft.

    The subject of high-energy-density (HED) states in matter is of considerable importance to numerous branches of basic as well as applied physics. Intense heavy-ion beams are an excellent tool to create large samples of HED matter in the laboratory with fairly uniform physical conditions. Gesellschaft fuer Schwerionenforschung, Darmstadt, is a unique worldwide laboratory that has a heavy-ion synchrotron, SIS18, that delivers intense beams of energetic heavy ions. Construction of a much more powerful synchrotron, SIS100, at the future international facility for antiprotons and ion research (FAIR) at Darmstadt will lead to an increase in beam intensity by 3 orders of magnitude compared to what is currently available. The purpose of this Letter is to investigate with the help of two-dimensional numerical simulations, the potential of the FAIR to carry out research in the field of HED states in matter

Rarely contracts for nationwide consortia have been signed; resulting from an initiative of a professional society, the „Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker“, an agreement was reached allowing for the use of the Beilstein-Crossfire-database in participating universities all over Germany.

  20. NRN, Removal-Diffusion for Squares and Cylindrical Geometry with Energy Transfer Matrix

    1981-01-01

    A - Nature of physical problem solved: A system of programmes using the NRN shield design method. NRN consists of the following programmes: 1) Data preparation programme NECO. 2) Multigroup removal programmes REBOX for box geometry and REMC for spherical and cylindrical geometries. 3) Multigroup diffusion - and slowing down programme NEDI. B - Method of solution: The NRN method presents a new approach in the formulation of removal-diffusion theory. The removal cross section is redefined and the slowing down between the multi-group diffusion equations is treated with a complete energy-transfer matrix rather than in an age theory approximation.

    Following the installation of the HMPID, the project has progressed swiftly with further detectors being lowered into the ALICE cavern. The first supermodule of the ALICE transition radiation detector was successfully installed on 10 October. The TRD collaborators from Germany standing next to the supermodule mounted in a rotating frame (bottom left corner) in the ALICE cavern. In the final configuration, 18 supermodules that make up the transition radiation detector will cylindrically surround the large time projection chamber in the central barrel of the ALICE experiment. Each supermodule is about 7 metre long and consists of 30 drift chambers in six layers. The construction of the modules is a collaboration between five institutes in Germany (Universities of Frankfurt and Heidelberg and Gesellschaft fuer Schwerionenforschung mbH in Darmstadt), Romania (NIPNE Bucharest) and Russia (JINR Dubna) with radiators (See 'Did you know?' section) produced at the University of Muenster, Germany.

    The company Gesellschaft fuer Nuklear-Service mbH, Essen/Germany (GNS), operates on behalf of the utilities E.ON, RWE, EnBW and VENE since the nineteen-nineties - amongst its other duties - on the waste management of metal scrap which originates from German nuclear power plants. The main objective within this responsibility is to maximize the value of recyclable fractions for re-use while minimizing the resulting radioactive waste. To achieve the aforementioned objective, melting of metallic scrap proved to be an outstanding choice. The use of this technique combined with all accompanying processes and regulations is accepted by the competent authorities and independent experts as a qualified treatment method over the entire time period. The motivation of this paper is to reflect on the experiences gained concerning the planning, implementation and results, acquired by GNS by using the Studsvik service. The focus will be on characteristics within processing of such campaigns. (authors)

    This was the topic of an Expert Meeting arranged by the VDI-Gesellschaft fuer Energietechnik at the Berlin Palace Hotel on September 28-29, 1999 and attended by roughly one hundred experts, almost exclusively from Germany. The meeting was organized to examine the economic impact of Germany's sole opting out of a high technology in the face of a growing worldwide energy requirement, and whether this approach will allow the objectives of carbon dioxide reduction to be achieved in the interest of climate protection. The detailed points discussed at the meeting included the economic consequences for Germany arising from the country's opting out of the use of nuclear power; the preservation of competence in nuclear technology; the future role of nuclear power in the EU; the energy options existing for climate protection. In addition, political discussions were held with representatives of the political parties. (orig.) [de

    The ''Institut fur Tieflagerung'' of the Gesellschaft fur Strahlen- and Umweltforschung, in collaboration with the Kernforschungszentrum Karlsruhe, carries out geoscientific and technical investigations in the disused iron ore mine Konrad. The aim is to prove the mine's feasibility for the disposal of low-level radioactive waste and decommissioning waste as well as the use of the existing mining installations. The investigations were initiated in 1975 and are being financed by the Minister for Research and Technology of the Federal Republic of Germany. Since 1978 the work is being supported as well by the Commission of the European Community in the scope of two years each. So far an amount of 60 mio DM has been spent, 86% for maintenance and further operation of the mine and 14% for research work

  8. Genetics as a modernization program: biological research at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institutes and the political economy of the Nazi State.

    Gausemeier, Bernd

    2010-01-01

    During the Third Reich, the biological institutes of the Kaiser Wilhelm Society (KWG, Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gesellschaft) underwent a substantial reorganization and modernization. This paper discusses the development of projects in the fields of biochemical genetics, virus research, radiation genetics, and plant genetics that were initiated in those years. These cases exemplify, on the one hand, the political conditions for biological research in the Nazi state. They highlight how leading scientists advanced their projects by building close ties with politicians and science-funding organizations and companies. On the other hand, the study examines how the contents of research were shaped by, and how they contributed to, the aims and needs of the political economy of the Nazi system. This paper therefore aims not only to highlight basic aspects of scientific development under Nazism, but also to provide general insights into the structure of the Third Reich and the dynamics of its war economy.

    2016-08-01

    The article discusses the consequences for neurology as a discipline which resulted from neurologists' participation in the crimes committed under National Socialism (NS). Chronologically, the current literature distinguishes mainly four overlapping stages: (1) a first phase was characterized by legal persecution and "denazification", which was also the time of the Nuremberg doctors' trial in which no neurologists were on trial. A detailed documentation of the trial for the German medical profession was published by Alexander Mitscherlich. (2) In the subsequent practice of wide amnestying and reintegration of former Nazi followers during the 1950s, neurologists were no exception as its elite continued in their positions. The year 1953 was the year of the Lisbon scandal, when chiefly Dutch representatives protested against the participation of Julius Hallervorden in the International Congress of Neurology. The newly founded societies, the German Society for Neurology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Neurologie, DGN) and the German Society for Psychiatry and Neurology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Psychiatrie und Neurologie, DGPN), unanimously supported their member. (3) The next period was characterized by a nascent criticism of the prevailing attitude of covering up the crimes committed by physicians during the Nazi period. The discovery of incriminating brain sections at various Max Planck Institutes brought neurology to the focus of the debate. (4) Since the 1980s and 1990s historians (of medicine) have been systematically examining medicine's Nazi past in a professional way, which resulted in a noticeable increase of knowledge. Additionally, a new generation of scholars provoked a change of mind insofar as they recognized medicine's responsibility for the crimes committed between 1933 and 1945. We expect that future historical research will further elucidate the history of neurology during the NS regime and have consequences for our current understanding of research

    2008-05-01

    Full Text Available Taking the viewpoint of the civil law tradition, which has traditionally assumed that the legitimacy of the administration is state-derived, this text recognises the constant decline of state sovereignty in modern times and consequently the increasing diffusion of the state into society. At the level of state theory, this reflects a shift from the great philosophical ‘social contract’ to many small legal contracts as its functional equivalent. Dealing with this phenomenon, administrative law needs to address the fundamental question of how law can sustainably support the unity of a society where the state administration and the various parts of society it has to govern are strange to each other and at the same time depending on mutual ad-hoc cooperation time and again.- Aus einer kontinentalen Sicht, gestützt auf die langen Erfahrungen mit einer staatlich angeleiteten Legitimation der Staatsverwaltung, erkennt diese Untersuchung den beständigen Niedergang staatlicher Souveränität in der Moderne und folglich die zunehmende Diffusion des Staates in die Gesellschaft. Auf der Ebene der Staatstheorie wird dies durch einen Wechsel vom großen philosophischen Sozialvertrag zu vielen einzelnen rechtlichen Verträgen als dessen funktionales Äquivalent gespiegelt. Mit diesem Phänomen erhält das Verwaltungsrecht eine grundsätzlich neue Perspektive: Es stellt sich die Frage, wie mit Recht die Einheit einer Gesellschaft hervorgebracht werden kann, in welcher die Staatsverwaltung und die von ihr zu regulierenden Sozialbereiche sich einerseits fremd geworden sind und doch andererseits auf wechselseitige Ad-hoc-Kooperationen immer wieder von Neuem angewiesen sind.

    To the argument that the long half-life values of the most important products of fission represent an unacceptable burden for coming generations, the author retorts that this is an emotion-directed pseudo-argument. Anyone who ventures into deep geological strata, such as the final storage area Konrad, should also count in terms of geological periods. From this point of view, a million years - however difficult to imagine for the average human being - is not a very long time. Toxic chemical waste is accepted by society, even if the toxicity should remain for all time. The article is an extract from a lecture given by the author to the Franco-German Society for Science and Technology. (orig.) [German] Dem Argument, die langen Halbwertszeiten der wichtigsten Spaltprodukte beinhalte eine nicht zu verantwortende Belastung fuer die nachfolgenden Generationen, haelt Autor Tillessen entgegen, dass dies ein auf Emotionen abzielendes Scheinargument sei. Wer sich, wie zum Beispiel beim Endlager Konrad, in tiefe geologische Schichten begebe, duerfe auch in geologischen Zeitraeumen rechnen. Und da sei eine Million Jahre, so wenig vorstellbar das auch fuer den Durchschnitts-Menschen sei, eben keine allzulange Zeit. Chemische Giftabfaelle wuerden von der Gesellschaft akzeptiert, obwohl ihre Toxitaet ewig waehre. Der Beitrag des Autors ist ein Auszug aus einer Rede, die er vor der Deutsch-Franzoesischen Gesellschaft fuer Wissenschaft und Technik gehalten hat.

    Martin, M; Karenberg, A; Fangerau, H

    2016-08-01

    This article focuses on the institutional development of neurology in Germany up to the rise to power of the National Socialists and the radical sociopolitical changes after 1933. A wide range of scattered secondary literature was assessed and evaluated. Additionally, some original sources are literally quoted and interpreted according to the context. Since the end of the nineteenth century a complicated process of separation from internal medicine and psychiatry led to the formation of a self-conscious discipline of neurology. The first generation of German neurologists succeeded in founding the German Journal for Neurology ("Deutsche Zeitschrift für Nervenheilkunde") in 1890 and their own neurological association, the Society of German Neurologists ("Gesellschaft Deutscher Nervenärzte", GDN) in 1907. On an international scale, however, the institutional implementation of neurology with only a small number of chairs and few neurology departments remained more than modest. The ambitions for autonomy ended 2 years after the change of power in 1933. Regulatory interventions by the government and psychiatric interests led to the fusion of the GDN with the psychiatric specialist society, the new association being called the Society of German Neurologists and Psychiatrists ("Gesellschaft Deutscher Neurologen und Psychiater", GDNP) in 1935. In this group psychiatrists dominated the discourse. The expulsion, imprisonment and murder of physicians declared as non-Aryan or Jewish along with the forced consolidation ("Gleichschaltung") at the universities prompted profound changes in medical and academic life. It remains an ongoing challenge of neurological historical research to measure the impact of this upheaval on the few neurology departments in hospitals and private practices.

    1999-01-01

    For many decades, Dr. Claus Berke worked at the interface of technology and politics. This is particularly true of nuclear technology. Between 1985 and 1989, he was Chairman of the Kerntechnische Gesellschaft; between 1989 and 1995, President of the Deutsches Atomforum. In Brussels, he was President of Foratom for a period of two years. Dr. Berke has been distinguished by a number of awards for his services. The Kerntechnische Gesellschaft has now appointed him its Honorary Member in recognition of his commitment to nuclear technology. The article is an excerpt from a speech made by Dr. Berke to the KTG at the awarding ceremony. Dr. Berke deals with the question why the acceptance of nuclear power in this country has become so negative, in contrast to the situation with our main competitors on the world market, especially France. He traces the growth of ideologies in the German political party scene, which resulted in destroying national unity in this important issue for the future. He feels that one of the major reasons for this development lies in the considerable loss of reputation and influence in the German public of science and engineering over the past thirty years. The situation with our French neighbors is quite different. Already French schools attach particular importance to mathematics, biology, physics, and chemistry. As a consequence, technical and scientific curricula are very attractive in France, while Germany is heading toward the paradoxical situation that industry will soon be short of more than ten thousand young engineers annually, while German universities produce a surplus of humanists for whom there will often be no proper jobs.

Es ist höchste Zeit, in der deutschen Bibliothekslandschaft publik zu machen, was eine „Grüne Bibliothek“ sein kann – bezogen auf das Gebäude, die Ausstattung, das Management, die Services für die Nutzer. Anhand einer Checkliste wird gezeigt, wie Bibliotheken mit einem „grünen“ Konzept nicht nur selbst etwas für die ökologische Nachhaltigkeit tun können, sondern auch wie sie als Multiplikatoren in den Kommunen, Hochschulen und bei anderen Trägern Einfluss auf das ökologische Verhalten nehmen und damit einen wichtigen Beitrag für unsere Gesellschaft leisten. Bringing environmental awareness to libraries does not necessarily imply huge financial efforts or a big budget. Ecological sustainability is an undervalued aspect of the marketing strategy for libraries which has more impact on clients and on stakeholders than one would expect. Small steps in going green can make a big impact for the library’s image. Little financial input can produce an important marketing outcome. Activities in this field can be developed in cooperation with unpaid partners like non-governmental organisations (NGOs, Friends of the Library groups, library suppliers and, last but not least, the library users. A checklist on how to go green gives an overview of important aspects in planning, construction, and library operations in order to introduce the first “green footsteps”.

    Full Text Available Die heutigen USA gelten vielen als Vorreiter auf dem Weg zur integrativen Erneuerung von Wissenschafts- und Erkenntnisparadigmen. Dies vor allem im Bereich der traditionellen Kern- und Grundlagen-Wissenschaft der neuzeitlichen Universität: der Philosophie und der historisch aus ihr erwachsenen Psychologien. Seit einigen Jahren ist in den USA in der Tat eine Entwicklung im Gang, welche die Einseitigkeiten des nominalistisch-subjektivistischen Paradigmas der „Postmoderne“, welches aus ideengeschichtlicher Sicht die Epoche zwischen 1979 und 2001 geprägt hat, um einen neuen geistigen Objektivismus ausgleichen und beide zu einem neuen, „subjektiv-objektiven“ Paradigma integrieren will. Diese Entwicklung findet ihren Ausdruck in drei exemplarischen Avantgarde-Strömungen, die im vorliegenden Beitrag vorgestellt sowie auf Charakteristiken und Wechselbeziehungen untersucht werden. Dabei erweist sich, dass die heutige ideengeschichtliche Avantgarde der USA in Kernterminologie, historischer Kontinuität und Ausrichtung stark pazifisch-asiatisch, aber noch zu wenig atlantisch-europäisch geprägt ist. Das scheint mit ein Grund dafür zu sein, warum diese Avantgarde-Ansätze trotz ihres hochwertigen Anregungs- und Innovations-Potentials im Hinblick auf ein ganzheitliches Wissenschafts-Paradigma für das 21. Jahrhundert noch unübersehbare Schwierigkeiten haben, den atlantisch-europäisch geprägten Hauptstrom des Geistes-, Kultur- und politisch-sozialen Lebens ihrer Gesellschaft zu erreichen. Es zeigt sich, dass der innere Ausgleich zwischen pazifischen und atlantischen Ideen-Einflüssen eine der zentralen Herausforderungen für diese Avantgarde-Strömungen, aber darüber hinaus im Spiegelverhältnis auch für das europäische Kultur- und Gesellschafts-Paradigma sowie für die Entwicklung der integralen Bewegungen auf Weltebene insgesamt ist.

    On October 28, 2009, the Kerntechnische Gesellschaft e.V. (KTG) awarded to Professor Dr. Juergen Knorr its 32 nd honorary membership in recognition of his untiring commitment and his decades of work for the peaceful uses of, and research into, nuclear power in Germany. Between 1992 and 2006 the scientist, now retired, held the Nuclear Power Technology chair at the Technical University of Dresden and, temporarily, also headed the university's Institute for Power Technology at the same time. From 1990, Professor Knorr was a member of the Executive Board of the Kerntechnische Gesellschaft; he was KTG Chairman between 1993 and 2000. At the same time and beyond, until 2005, Professor Knorr was a member also of the Board of the Deutsches Atomforum. At the awarding ceremony in Berlin on October 28, KTG Chairman Dr. Helmut Blaesig welcomed the fact that, on the basis of the coalition agreement of CDU, CSU and FDP, the new federal government 'had clearly recognized the advantages of nuclear power.' It appreciated the safety of German plants and, in addition to the non-polluting characteristics due to CO 2 emissions saved and the security of supply, also the economic benefit of electricity generation from nuclear power. This supported the German economy in a situation which continued to be difficult. In his vote of thanks for the 32 nd honorary membership of KTG, Professor Knorr emphasized what he considered a key expectation of the re-evaluation of nuclear power by the new federal government: Creating framework conditions for a societal consensus that fair competition among conventional, renewable and nuclear power technologies will give rise to an optimum mix enabling sustainable development to be achieved.

    This report from the Stereotactic Radiotherapy Working Group of the German Society of Radiation Oncology (Deutschen Gesellschaft fuer Radioonkologie, DEGRO) provides a definition of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) that agrees with that of other international societies. SBRT is defined as a method of external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) that accurately delivers a high irradiation dose to an extracranial target in one or few treatment fractions. Detailed recommendations concerning the principles and practice of SBRT for early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are given. These cover the entire treatment process; from patient selection, staging, treatment planning and delivery to follow-up. SBRT was identified as the method of choice when compared to best supportive care (BSC), conventionally fractionated radiotherapy and radiofrequency ablation. Based on current evidence, SBRT appears to be on a par with sublobar resection and is an effective treatment option in operable patients who refuse lobectomy. (orig.) [German] Die Arbeitsgruppe ''Stereotaktische Radiotherapie'' der Deutschen Gesellschaft fuer Radioonkologie (DEGRO) erarbeitete eine Definition der Koerperstereotaxie (SBRT), die sich an vorhandene internationale Definitionen anlehnt: Die SBRT ist eine Form der perkutanen Strahlentherapie, die mit hoher Praezision eine hohe Bestrahlungsdosis in einer oder wenigen Bestrahlungsfraktionen in einem extrakraniellen Zielvolumen appliziert. Zur Praxis der SBRT beim nichtkleinzelligen Bronchialkarzinom (NSCLC) im fruehen Stadium werden detaillierte Empfehlungen gegeben, die den gesamten Ablauf der Behandlung von der Indikationsstellung, Staging, Behandlungsplanung und Applikation sowie Nachsorge umfassen. Die Koerperstereotaxie wurde als Methode der Wahl im Vergleich zu Best Supportive Care, zur konventionell fraktionierten Strahlentherapie sowie zur Radiofrequenzablation identifiziert. Die Ergebnisse nach SBRT und sublobaerer Resektion
