  2. Generalized spin Sutherland systems revisited

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    L. Fehér

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available We present generalizations of the spin Sutherland systems obtained earlier by Blom and Langmann and by Polychronakos in two different ways: from SU(n Yang–Mills theory on the cylinder and by constraining geodesic motion on the N-fold direct product of SU(n with itself, for any N>1. Our systems are in correspondence with the Dynkin diagram automorphisms of arbitrary connected and simply connected compact simple Lie groups. We give a finite-dimensional as well as an infinite-dimensional derivation and shed light on the mechanism whereby they lead to the same classical integrable systems. The infinite-dimensional approach, based on twisted current algebras (alias Yang–Mills with twisted boundary conditions, was inspired by the derivation of the spinless Sutherland model due to Gorsky and Nekrasov. The finite-dimensional method relies on Hamiltonian reduction under twisted conjugations of N-fold direct product groups, linking the quantum mechanics of the reduced systems to representation theory similarly as was explored previously in the N=1 case.

  4. Will the 'Shire' ever be the same again? Schooling Responses to the Cronulla Beach Riot

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2010-03-01

    Full Text Available In the aftermath of the Cronulla riots, schools were faced with the fallout of social conflict, including having to deal with widespread fear and confusion both in their local communities and among students. This was especially the case for schools in the Sutherland Shire and in the local government area (LGA of Bankstown. Apart from the presence of many young people in the initial riot and the revenge raids, some schools, like churches, had been the target of attacks (Leys and Box, 2005: 1; Daily Telegraph, 2005: 5. Schools were also targeted as places to battle the consequences of cultural division: the then Prime Minister John Howard, in his Australia Day speech just over a month after the riots, complained that the teaching of Australian history in schools needed reform to properly foster the core values that would bind a nation together (Sydney Morning Herald, 2006. At all levels of government, a raft of programs designed to ease local tensions were introduced, many of which focused on young people or on schools (see Board of Studies New South Wales, 2007; Surf Life Saving NSW, 2006. This article outlines the contexts for understanding the role of schools: both in terms of the spatial dynamics of the ‘Shire’ and in terms of the changing nature of educational policy. It then focuses on a National Values Education Project (NVEP involving five schools in south and south-western Sydney as a direct response to the Cronulla riot. It suggests that these contexts produce both a degree of cultural heterogeneity in young people’s social lives and a degree of segregation amongst young people in schooling which delimits ‘what is possible’ in terms of schooling responses to the Cronulla riot.

    Full Text Available We review a recent construction of an explicit analytic series representation for symmetric polynomials which up to a groundstate factor are eigenfunctions of Calogero-Sutherland type models. We also indicate a generalisation of this result to polynomials which give the eigenfunctions of so-called 'deformed' Calogero-Sutherland type models.

    Many attempts have been made to understand and explain the complicated relationship between the English of Ireland and the Irish in the later Middle Ages. This paper explores the interaction between these two groups through the curiously understudied phenomenon of intermarriage, and centres on the 'four obedient shires' of Dublin, Meath, Louth and Kildare in the fifteenth century. These counties, parts of which later comprised the Pale, were home to an English community that helped to produce...

  7. A problem-oriented approach to understanding adaptation: lessons learnt from Alpine Shire, Victoria Australia.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Roman, Carolina

    2010-05-01

    Climate change is gaining attention as a significant strategic issue for localities that rely on their business sectors for economic viability. For businesses in the tourism sector, considerable research effort has sought to characterise the vulnerability to the likely impacts of future climate change through scenarios or ‘end-point' approaches (Kelly & Adger, 2000). Whilst useful, there are few demonstrable case studies that complement such work with a ‘start-point' approach that seeks to explore contextual vulnerability (O'Brien et al., 2007). This broader approach is inclusive of climate change as a process operating within a biophysical system and allows recognition of the complex interactions that occur in the coupled human-environmental system. A problem-oriented and interdisciplinary approach was employed at Alpine Shire, in northeast Victoria Australia, to explore the concept of contextual vulnerability and adaptability to stressors that include, but are not limited to climatic change. Using a policy sciences approach, the objective was to identify factors that influence existing vulnerabilities and that might consequently act as barriers to effective adaptation for the Shire's business community involved in the tourism sector. Analyses of results suggest that many threats, including the effects climate change, compete for the resources, strategy and direction of local tourism management bodies. Further analysis of conditioning factors revealed that many complex and interacting factors define the vulnerability and adaptive capacity of the Shire's tourism sector to the challenges of global change, which collectively have more immediate implications for policy and planning than long-term future climate change scenarios. An approximation of the common interest, i.e. enhancing capacity in business acumen amongst tourism operators, would facilitate adaptability and sustainability through the enhancement of social capital in this business community.

  8. Sutherland's legacy in the new millennium: the osteopathic cranial model and modern osteopathy.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Bordoni, Bruno; Zanier, Emiliano

    2015-01-01

    The concept of cranial osteopathy was introduced by W. G. Sutherland, DO, and became the foundation for setting the rules for use of skull palpation and many other techniques in the many types of dysfunctional patterns that craniosacral therapy treats. Sutherland's theories enabled modern osteopathy to develop and improve. The mechanism of primary respiration as well as the motion of neurocranial and viscerocranial sutures are phenomena intrinsic to the field and can be found in every living organism, independent of thoracic breathing and cardiac impulse. The sphenobasilar synchondrosis (ie, the joint between the base of the occiput and the body of the sphenoid bone) is the pillar supporting the concepts of craniosacral therapy. This article compares the cranial model devised by Sutherland with the present, relevant scientific research, aiming at clarifying the possibility of applying the craniosacral model in the new millennium.

  10. The influence of the Shire River on Liwonde National Park, Malawi, with special reference to elephant movements

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    R. Bhima

    1997-02-01

    Full Text Available Liwonde National Park (538 km2, Malawi, is a riverine-lacustrine park. The only outlet of Lake Malawi is the Shire River along the western boundary of the park. Although elephants spend many long hours in the floodplain on the eastern bank, they never crossed the river until 1991/92 during the worst southern African drought in living memory. This study investigated the impact of the river on the floodplain and inferred the influence on elephant movements. Waterflow of the Shire River at Liwonde since 1972 was reviewed and influences of water level variations were inferred from aerial photographs and geomorphic maps. Elephants crossing the river were also observed. The period 1972-1975 had low waterflow, reaching a minimum of 180 cumecs. Elephants did not cross then, probably because the population was small (below 200 and therefore had no incentive to do so. In contrast, the period 1976-1990 was characterised by high river waterflow of up to 1050 cumecs, leading to extensive flooding. This provided water and good forage. During the drought between 1991 and 1995 little flooding occurred. The elephants over-utilised the eastern floodplain. Some crossed the river for better forage. The population had then increased to 400.

    2010-05-01

    The superconducting gravimeter (SG) operating at the South African Geodynamic Observatory Sutherland (SAGOS) is one of the few instruments installed in the southern hemisphere and presently still the only one of its kind on the African continent. SAGOS is located in the Karoo, a semi-arid region with an average annual precipitation in the range of 200 to 400 mm. The distance to the ocean is approx. 220 km. A seasonal effect on gravity related to fluctuations in local hydrology is clearly seen in the SG record. Its general order of magnitude is estimated to be about 4 to 10 nm/s². A large-scale hydrological impact in a similar order of magnitude or even larger (up to 60 nm/s² peak-to-peak) is inferred from global hydrological models for the years 2003 to 2007. Significant contributions are found for the southern coast, the central Cape region, and the basin of the Orange river. Contributing basins with larger distance comprise the areas of Okavango/Sambesi, Congo, and eastern Africa. Between SG data, temporal GRACE gravity field solutions, and the gravity effect derived from global hydrological models clear differences are present. Among others, differences between the hydrological models can be traced to deviations in the gravity effect originating from the Okavango basin and the central Cape region. The present findings indicate the suitability of the SG observations at Sutherland for studies on changes in continental water storage in the South African region.

  15. The spin Sutherland model of D type and its associated spin chain

    Science.gov (United States)

    Basu-Mallick, B.; Finkel, F.; González-López, A.

    2011-02-01

    In this paper we study the su(m) spin Sutherland (trigonometric) model of D type and its related spin chain of Haldane-Shastry type obtained by means of Polychronakos's freezing trick. As in the rational case recently studied by the authors, we show that these are new models, whose properties cannot be simply deduced from those of their well-known BC counterparts by taking a suitable limit. We identify the Weyl-invariant extended configuration space of the spin dynamical model, which turns out to be the N-dimensional generalization of a rhombic dodecahedron. This is in fact one of the reasons underlying the greater complexity of the models studied in this paper in comparison with both their rational and BC counterparts. By constructing a non-orthogonal basis of the Hilbert space of the spin dynamical model on which its Hamiltonian acts triangularly, we compute its spectrum in closed form. Using this result and applying the freezing trick, we derive an exact expression for the partition function of the associated Haldane-Shastry spin chain of D type.

  16. Zigzagging causality EPR model: answer to Vigier and coworkers and to Sutherland

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    de Beauregard, O.C.

    1987-08-01

    The concept of propagation in time of Vigier and co-workers (V et al.) implies the ideal of a supertime; it is thus alien to most Minkowskian pictures and certainly to the authors. From this stems much of V et al.'s misunderstandings of his position. In steady motion of a classical fluid nobody thinks that momentum conservation is violated, or that momentum is shot upstream without cause because of the suction from the sinks. Similarly with momentum-energy in spacetime and the acceptance of an advanced causality. As for the CT invariance of the Feynman propagator, the causality asymmetry it entails is factlike, not lawlike. The geometrical counterpart of the symmetry between prediction and retrodiction and between retarded and advanced waves, as expressed in the alternative expressions = = for a transition amplitude between a preparation lt. slashA> and a measurement lt. slashB>, is CPT-invariant, not PT-invariant. These three expressions respectively illustrate the collapse, the retrocollapse, and the symmetric collapse-and-retrocollapse concepts. As for Sutherland's argument, what it falsifies is not the authors retrocausation concept but the hidden-variables assumption he has unwittingly made.

  17. A metric-based assessment of flood risk and vulnerability of rural communities in the Lower Shire Valley, Malawi

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    A. J. Adeloye

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available In response to the increasing frequency and economic damages of natural disasters globally, disaster risk management has evolved to incorporate risk assessments that are multi-dimensional, integrated and metric-based. This is to support knowledge-based decision making and hence sustainable risk reduction. In Malawi and most of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA, however, flood risk studies remain focussed on understanding causation, impacts, perceptions and coping and adaptation measures. Using the IPCC Framework, this study has quantified and profiled risk to flooding of rural, subsistent communities in the Lower Shire Valley, Malawi. Flood risk was obtained by integrating hazard and vulnerability. Flood hazard was characterised in terms of flood depth and inundation area obtained through hydraulic modelling in the valley with Lisflood-FP, while the vulnerability was indexed through analysis of exposure, susceptibility and capacity that were linked to social, economic, environmental and physical perspectives. Data on these were collected through structured interviews of the communities. The implementation of the entire analysis within GIS enabled the visualisation of spatial variability in flood risk in the valley. The results show predominantly medium levels in hazardousness, vulnerability and risk. The vulnerability is dominated by a high to very high susceptibility. Economic and physical capacities tend to be predominantly low but social capacity is significantly high, resulting in overall medium levels of capacity-induced vulnerability. Exposure manifests as medium. The vulnerability and risk showed marginal spatial variability. The paper concludes with recommendations on how these outcomes could inform policy interventions in the Valley.

  19. Pressure evolution of the Shastry-Sutherland magnet SrCu{sub 2}(BO{sub 3}){sub 2}

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    2012-07-01

    We investigate the evolution of crystal structure and individual magnetic couplings in the spin1/2 Shastry-Sutherland magnet SrCu{sub 2}(BO{sub 3}){sub 2} under hydrostatic pressure. Our results based on ab initio electronic structure calculations suggest the highly anisotropic compressibility of the structure that strongly shrinks along the interlayer c direction, while only weakly changing in the ab plane. This leads to a moderate change in the intralayer exchange couplings J and J' within the Cu{sub 2}O{sub 6} dimers and between the dimers, respectively. Above 4.5 GPa, SrCu{sub 2}(BO{sub 3}){sub 2} transforms into a monoclinic phase that has been scarcely characterized experimentally. We propose an improved structural model of this phase, and identify its spin system as an anisotropic Shastry-Sutherland lattice featuring inequivalent interdimer couplings J{sub 1}' and J{sub 2}. Our results compare well to the available experimental data, and call for a further investigation of the spin-lattice coupling phenomena in SrCu{sub 2}(BO{sub 3}){sub 2}.

  2. Decorated Shastry-Sutherland lattice in the spin-(1)/(2) magnet CdCu2(BO3)2

    Janson, O.; Rousochatzakis, I.; Tsirlin, A. A.; Richter, J.; Skourski, Yu.; Rosner, H.

    2012-02-01

    We report the microscopic magnetic model for the spin-1/2 Heisenberg system CdCu2(BO3)2, one of the few quantum magnets showing the 1/2-magnetization plateau. Recent neutron diffraction experiments on this compound [M. Hase , Phys. Rev. BPLRBAQ0556-280510.1103/PhysRevB.80.104405 80, 104405 (2009)] evidenced long-range magnetic order, inconsistent with the previously suggested phenomenological magnetic model of isolated dimers and spin chains. Based on extensive density functional theory band structure calculations, exact diagonalizations, quantum Monte Carlo simulations, third-order perturbation theory as well as high-field magnetization measurements, we find that the magnetic properties of CdCu2(BO3)2 are accounted for by a frustrated quasi-2D magnetic model featuring four inequivalent exchange couplings: the leading antiferromagnetic coupling Jd within the structural Cu2O6 dimers, two interdimer couplings Jt1 and Jt2, forming magnetic tetramers, and a ferromagnetic coupling Jit between the tetramers. Based on comparison to the experimental data, we evaluate the ratios of the leading couplings Jd : Jt1 : Jt2 : Jit = 1 : 0.20 : 0.45 : -0.30, with Jd of about 178 K. The inequivalence of Jt1 and Jt2 largely lifts the frustration and triggers long-range antiferromagnetic ordering. The proposed model accounts correctly for the different magnetic moments localized on structurally inequivalent Cu atoms in the ground-state magnetic configuration. We extensively analyze the magnetic properties of this model, including a detailed description of the magnetically ordered ground state and its evolution in magnetic field with particular emphasis on the 1/2-magnetization plateau. Our results establish remarkable analogies to the Shastry-Sutherland model of SrCu2(BO3)2, and characterize the closely related CdCu2(BO3)2 as a material realization for the spin-1/2 decorated anisotropic Shastry-Sutherland lattice.

    The study of interacting spin systems is of fundamental importance for modern condensed-matter physics. On frustrated lattices, magnetic exchange interactions cannot be simultaneously satisfied, and often give rise to competing exotic ground states. The frustrated two-dimensional Shastry-Sutherland lattice realized by SrCu2(BO3)2 (refs ,) is an important test case for our understanding of quantum magnetism. It was constructed to have an exactly solvable 2-spin dimer singlet ground state within a certain range of exchange parameters and frustration. While the exact dimer state and the antiferromagnetic order at both ends of the phase diagram are well known, the ground state and spin correlations in the intermediate frustration range have been widely debated. We report here the first experimental identification of the conjectured plaquette singlet intermediate phase in SrCu2(BO3)2. It is observed by inelastic neutron scattering after pressure tuning to 21.5 kbar. This gapped singlet state leads to a transition to long-range antiferromagnetic order above 40 kbar, consistent with the existence of a deconfined quantum critical point.

    We present measurements of the magnetic susceptibility χ and the magnetization M of single crystals of metallic Yb(2)Pt(2)Pb, where localized Yb moments lie on the dimerized and frustrated Shastry-Sutherland lattice (SSL). Strong magnetic frustration is found in this quasi-two-dimensional system, which orders antiferromagnetically at T(N) = 2.02 K from a paramagnetic liquid of Yb dimers, having a gap Δ = 4.6 K between the singlet ground state and the triplet excited states. Magnetic fields suppress the antiferromagnetic (AF) order, which vanishes at a 1.23 T quantum critical point. The spin gap Δ persists to 1.5 T, indicating that dimer singlets survive the collapse of the B = 0 AF state. Quantized steps are observed in M(B) within the AF state, a signature of SSL systems. Our results show that Yb(2) Pt(2)Pb is unique, both as a metallic SSL system that is close to an AF quantum critical point, and as a heavy fermion compound where quantum frustration plays a decisive role.

    Superconducting gravimeters (SGs) continuously measure temporal variations of the Earth's gravity with very high precision. As SGs are sensitive to water mass changes in their surroundings, they potentially provide unique measurements of total water storage variations (the sum of variations in snow, soil and groundwater storage) at scales of several hundreds of meters. However, other geophysical signals by mass attraction and loading effects (e.g., tides, atmosphere, ocean, regional and global hydrology) have to be adequately removed from SG observations. In addition, the local settings of SG deployment (e.g., topographic position and near-field observatory infrastructure) are important controls on SG is sensitivity to the hydrological signal of interest. In this study, we evaluate the hydrological value of SGs for two sites in contrasting climate regions, i.e., (1) the Geodetic Observatory TIGO in the Coast Range of Southern Chile in Concepción, and (2) the South African Geodynamic Observatory Sutherland (SAGOS) in the semidesert Karoo region. At both sites, gravimetric as well as independent hydro-meteorological observations are available for several years. We remove large-scale atmospheric, oceanic and hydrological gravity effects by an ensemble approach using several global models. For the highly seasonal sub-humid climate at TIGO, the residual gravity signals had a larger seasonal amplitude (300-400 nm/s2) and a later annual phase than the gravimetric signal estimated from near-surface soil moisture observations in previous analyses. The gravity observations alluded to important and delayed water storage variations in the deeper (20 meter) unsaturated zone. This has been corroborated by soil moisture observations in deeper soil horizons, monitoring of the groundwater level, and hydrological modelling. At the semi-arid site SAGOS, water storage variations are considerably smaller, as are variations of SG residuals (amplitudes smaller than 20 nm/s2). While some

  14. NMR in Pulsed Magnetic Fields on the Orthogonal Shastry-Sutherland spin system SrCu2 (BO3)2

    SrCu2(BO3)2 is a quasi-two-dimensional spin system consisting of Cu2+ ions which form orthogonal spin singlet dimers, also known as the Shastry-Sutherland lattice, in the ground state. Though this system has been studied extensively using a variety of techniques to probe the spin triplet excitations, including recent magnetization measurements over 100 T, microscopic techniques, such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), could provide further insight into the spin excitations and spin-coupling mechanisms. We demonstrate the feasibility of performing NMR on real physics system in pulsed magnets. We present 11B NMR spectra measured in pulsed magnetic fields up to 53 T, and compare those with prior results obtained in static magnetic fields. Herewith we prove the efficacy of this technique and then extend to higher fields to fully explore the spin structure of the 1/3 plateau. Support by EMFL, DFG, ETAg (EML+ & PUT210).

    The June meeting of Council is always a very busy one, having approval of the next year’s budget and the MTP as fixed agenda points. This year in addition, we had discussions on enlargement, as well as on the pension fund. I’d like to use this message to bring you up to date on all of those matters.   I’ll begin with the good news that the 2015 budget and MTP were recommended for approval by Finance Committee on Wednesday, and approved by Council on Thursday. This is extremely good news, and a solid vote of confidence from Council in the current economic situation. Coupled with that, I am pleased to report that at the half way stage of 2014, some 89% of budget contributions for the year have been received. Turning now to enlargement, I can inform you that the task force that went to Pakistan came back with a positive report, and as a consequence Council has authorised us to finalise discussion with Pakistan for Associate Membership. Council also authoris...

  2. NAS council approves reorganization

    Science.gov (United States)

    Richman, Barbara T.

    A proposed reorganization at the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) would fold the Commission on Natural Resources into the Assembly of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (AMPS) to form what would be called the Commission on Mathematics, Physical Sciences, and Resources. Spurred by NAS President Frank Press, past president of AGU, the merger is part of a reorganization that aims to clarify the division of labor within the National Research Council (NRC). The NAS council approved the general structure of the reorganization; the National Academy of Engineering's council was scheduled to review the matter at its March 12 meeting. Administrative details of the restructuring will not be finalized until the April 3 meeting of the NRC governing board.

  3. Noncollinear magnetic ordering in the Shastry-Sutherland Kondo lattice model: Insulating regime and the role of Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction

    Science.gov (United States)

    Shahzad, Munir; Sengupta, Pinaki

    2017-12-01

    We investigate the necessary conditions for the emergence of complex, noncoplanar magnetic configurations in a Kondo lattice model with classical local moments on the geometrically frustrated Shastry-Sutherland lattice and their evolution in an external magnetic field. We demonstrate that topologically nontrivial spin textures, including a new canted flux state, with nonzero scalar chirality arise dynamically from realistic short-range interactions. Our results establish that a finite Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya (DM) interaction is necessary for the emergence of these novel magnetic states when the system is at half filling, for which the ground state is insulating. We identify the minimal set of DM vectors that are necessary for the stabilization of chiral magnetic phases. The noncoplanarity of such structures can be tuned continually by applying an external magnetic field. This is the first part in a series of two papers; in the following paper the effects of frustration, thermal fluctuations, and magnetic field on the emergence of novel noncollinear states at metallic filling of itinerant electrons are discussed. Our results are crucial in understanding the magnetic and electronic properties of the rare-earth tetraboride family of frustrated magnets with separate spin and charge degrees of freedom.

  5. Report from Council

    CERN Multimedia

    2015-01-01

    This week’s Council meeting was dominated by discussions about the long-term, sustainable future of CERN. Key points are progress on the Medium-Term Plan, the successful LHC restart, and enlargement.   The budget proposed by management for 2016 was well received, as were the measures to mitigate against the recent change in exchange rates. These items will be put to the vote in September. Discussions on CERN staff employment conditions were conducted in a constructive atmosphere this week, and will continue in future Council meetings. The Council also clearly voiced its congratulations for the smooth and successful start of LHC run 2, coming on top of a clear run of spectacular scientific and technological successes over recent years. In the current climate of austerity, these developments are a strong endorsement from the Council. Nevertheless, it would be disingenuous of me to pretend that everything is rosy. There has been an air of unease at CERN over recent months, which was v...

  10. DECLARATION TO COUNCIL

    CERN Multimedia

    Staff Association

    2015-01-01

    One year ago, the Staff Association, together with the CERN-ESO Pensioners' Association, organized a staff meeting in front of this building to express our concern about certain actions of this Committee. Today we deem it necessary to come before you and convey in person, dear delegates, the concerns and worries of the staff. Indeed, the last 18 months we have observed a tendency of Council to take matters, in particular in the field of pensions, into its own hands, bypassing established governance structures, which Council has itself put into place. As a result, the Director General was prevented from playing his essential role of intermediary between staff and Council, an essential element of the established social dialogue. The creation of CERN in 1954 was very much based on the willingness of many countries of the old Continent to share resources to create a joint fundamental physics laboratory. The emphasis was on sharing resources for the common good to allow European scientists to engage in...

    2010-01-01

    To complete the revamp of CERN’s Council Chamber, a new exhibition is being installed just in time for the June Council meetings.   Panels will showcase highlights of CERN’s history, using some of the content prepared for the exhibitions marking 50 years of the PS, which were displayed in the main building last November. The previous photo exhibition in the Council Chamber stopped at the 1970s. To avoid the new panels becoming quickly out of date, photos are grouped together around specific infrastructures, rather than following a classic time-line. “We have put the focus on the accelerators – the world-class facilities that CERN has been offering researchers over the years, from the well-known large colliders to the lesser-known smaller facilities,” says Emma Sanders, who worked on the content. The new exhibition will be featured in a future issue of the Bulletin with photos and an interview with Fabienne Marcastel, designer of the exhibit...

In approving the document, Council expressed its very strong support for the research programme the MTP outlines for the coming years.  Another important topic this week was the formal approval of the High Luminosity LHC project, HL-LHC. This comes as extremely good news not only for CERN, but also for particle physics globally. HL-LHC is the top priority of the European Strategy for Particle Physics in its 2013 update, and is part of the 2016 roadmap of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures, ESFRI. It was also identified as a priority in the US P5 strategy process, and in Japan’s strategic vision for the field. It secures CERN’s future until 2035, and ensures that we will achieve the maximum scientific return on the investment...

    This has been a busy week for the CERN Council, and there is much to report. Firstly, I’m pleased to say that Council approved the Organization’s Medium Term Plan, and with it the budget for financial year 2010. In a time of global recession, this is a strong vote of confidence from the Member States. This meeting of Council provided an opportunity for the working group on the scientific and geographical enlargement of CERN to set out a roadmap towards its final report, which is to be made at Council’s December session this year. One part of the process over the coming months is to bring the major players in particle physics from beyond the European region into the discussion, ensuring that the working group’s recommendations lead to an optimum position for CERN and European particle physics in the global context. An indicator of the continuing attractiveness of CERN is the fact that Council has received four new applications...

First of all, the Council congratulated CERN and the Collaborations on the superb performance of the accelerator complex and experiments. It has been a great year so far, with important physics results across the whole spectrum of the CERN research programme.   Looking forward, one of the main accomplishments from this week’s meetings is that the Council has approved the opening of a credit facility with the European Investment Bank (EIB) to cover the cash shortage during the peak years of the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) construction. This is very good news since it will allow us to carry out the work necessary for the HL-LHC without compromising the rest of the Laboratory’s scientific programme. Turning to the scientific and geographical enlargement, the Council approved the admission of India as an Associate Member State, and I very much hope that the agreement can be signed in the near future so that Indi...

    Full Text Available The power delegated to today's social organizations a factor in the efficient management of organizations in a context marked by complexity. The present research was to interpret the word power of management in the actions undertaken by the Community Councils of the Municipality Naguanagua and Valencia Carabobo State in the first half of 2012, compared with other Community Councils that make life in other regions of country, where policies and actions defined by the organization reach its goals. The methodology consisted in the study of theoretical and empirical papers of these organizations in question. Eventually you will reach a reflection that there are communal councils in different regions of Venezuela, who show their ability and control over the development of their activities enabling a leading role in planning, evaluation and control in public administration, proving to be a healthy organization with a common goal which results in social welfare, linking philosophy, technology and society. It is a key word in the strategy adopted by these organizations, so power is a fundamental human component and the interrelations of the members of these organized communities and their environment, hence it has been studied by different disciplines and social sciences

  12. Nursing and Midwifery Council revalidation.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Myatt, Rebecca

    2015-10-14

    All UK nurses and midwives will be required to perform revalidation as part of their registration process, from April 2016. This entails a pre-determined number of practice hours and study time, reflection on practice, obtaining feedback on individual performance and confirmation of these achievements by a third party source. This article describes the actions nurses and midwives can take to fulfil their revalidation requirements. It also discusses how to prepare for the forthcoming changes and what the nurse and midwife need to consider to perform successful revalidation. By completing the time out activities included with this article, reflecting on your practice and submitting your work for continuing professional development credits, you will be working towards creating a revalidation portfolio, in accordance with Nursing and Midwifery Council guidelines.

  13. The Council of Psychological Advisers.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Sunstein, Cass R

    2016-01-01

    Findings in behavioral science, including psychology, have influenced policies and reforms in many nations. Choice architecture can affect outcomes even if material incentives are not involved. In some contexts, default rules, simplification, and social norms have had even larger effects than significant economic incentives. Psychological research is helping to inform initiatives in savings, finance, highway safety, consumer protection, energy, climate change, obesity, education, poverty, development, crime, corruption, health, and the environment. No nation has yet created a council of psychological advisers, but the role of behavioral research in policy domains is likely to grow in the coming years, especially in light of the mounting interest in promoting ease and simplification ("navigability"); in increasing effectiveness, economic growth, and competitiveness; and in providing low-cost, choice-preserving approaches.

  12. Quality councils as health system performance and accountability mechanisms: the Cancer Quality Council of Ontario experience.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dobrow, Mark; Langer, Bernard; Angus, Helen; Sullivan, Terrence

    2006-01-01

    Recent national and provincial reviews on the status of healthcare in Canada have recommended the establishment of quality councils to guide quality improvement efforts. The emergence of quality councils, such as the Health Quality Council of Alberta, the Saskatchewan Health Quality Council, the Cancer Quality Council of Ontario and the Health Council of Canada, reflect new but largely unscrutinized models for improving quality of care. We discuss the varying mandates of these new quality councils, their fit with evolving governance and accountability structures and the credibility and legitimacy of their role as perceived by other health system organizations. To further illustrate these issues, we present insiders' perspectives on the Cancer Quality Council of Ontario's activities over its first three years, including the initial agenda, critical success factors and the nature of evolving relationships with other organizations in Ontario's healthcare system. While current Canadian quality councils represent an eclectic mix of methods for achieving improvements in quality of care, it is not entirely clear how quality councils will stimulate sustained and significant improvements in quality of care where other models have failed. However, these new Canadian quality councils represent natural experiments in motion from which much needs to be learned.

    2010-01-01

    Geneva, 1 February 2010 Dear President of Council, The active and retired members of the Pension Fund are very concerned and indignant about the way in which Council is dealing with the alarming question of the balance of the Fund. Indeed, in 2004 the actuarial review had alerted Council to the matter of the technical deficit of the scheme and the insufficient funding of its benefit scheme. At that time, Council contented itself with putting in place a mechanism of under-indexation of pensions – arbitrary and discriminatory in that it called on the solidarity of the pensioners only – and with deciding on a very small increase in contributions to the Fund, a token measure having no relation to the size of the problem. Since 2004, all that Council has done is to ask for one study after another: in December 2004, December 2005, December 2006, June 2007, and June 2008. The conclusions of the last study, carried out by the Pension Fund Governing Board, were presented on 11 November 2009. Th...

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available This paper discusses the debate on the rise and the establishment of management councils of public policies, especially policy of urban reform, as potentials of action that enable the extension of citizenship. In order to address the meaning of collective action in institutional spaces of deliberation of Master Plan of the city, it is considered that the choice of planning policy is determined by the peculiarity of existing decision-making in society. Thus it seeks to understand the restructuring of the Master Plan Council (CONPLAD in Pelotas and the discussion of the III Master Plan Project linked to interactive social movement, whose its social dimension moves modifications in the relationship between State and society.

    The small rural communities in Australia's tropical savanna landscapes depend upon the region's natural resources for income and employment. Historically primary industries - including mining, grazing and, in the case of coastal communities, fishing - have been the pillars of economic activity in those regions. More recently, tourism has emerged as an additional nature-based industry, which offers new development and employment opportunities for populations in remote regions. Net benefits fro...

    2012-01-01

    The UN Security Council has been deeply divided over how to respond to the Arab Spring crisis in Syria. Since the uprising began in Syria in March 2011 the Syrian Government has responded with extreme violence against civilians and civilian areas to suppress protests. In the face of escalating violence, the Security Council has experienced protracted deadlock. Divisions on how to interpret the situation in Syria left the Security Council unable to find consensus on issuing a non-binding Presi...

  6. Rogaland County Council and Universal Design.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ask, Linda Nilsen

    2016-01-01

    Rogaland Council has adopted Universal Design as an overriding principle for all planning and development in the county. Private stakeholders and public agencies collaborated in the development of a successful County Plan for Universal Design that has been recognised as an example of good practice by Norway's public authorities. The plan provides guidelines for both state and municipal planning and operations in several policy areas from public transport to educational and cultural buildings to sports and recreation areas. One of the main contributions of the plan is an evaluation methodology built on the "TEK-10" national standard, and developed with the participation of authorities, experts, staff from municipalities and representatives of organisations for people with disabilities. This method is used to assess the accessibility and compliance with Universal Design principles of different destinations. This information is then published in the dedicated website www.tilgjengelighet.no which serves as an information channel for the general public about accessibility to various locations in the county. A community engagement method has been developed for including user groups in the design process for both new buildings and renovation projects. Representatives for user groups are chosen by the Council's Disability Committee, and these help to inform the planning and construction process. The plan also emphasises the development of knowledge and skills in Universal Design through educational programmes for secondary schools and colleges as well as training opportunities for councillors. This paper summarises the plan's rationale and the progress made until now.

  16. Explaining Russia’s Relationship with the Arctic Council

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Andrew Chater

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available Relations between the West and Russia have worsened since Russia annexed Crimea in February 2014. This article explains how this deterioration has affected the Arctic Council. The council is an international institution with eight member states with territory in the Arctic (Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the United States as well as six indigenous peoples’ organizations. The mandate of the institution is to promote environmental protection and sustainable development in the Arctic. There is currently a debate in the media about the impact of Russia’s actions on Arctic governance. Some accounts argue that the Arctic Council’s work continues unabated in the aftermath of Crimea, while others point to worrying signs that the institution is experiencing difficulty. This research helps settle this debate by empirically demonstrating Russia’s behaviour. It concludes that the breakdown in Russian-United States relations has not had an immediate impact on the council. The article employs descriptive statistics to understand Russia’s patterns of activity in the council in three periods (1998–2000, 2007–2009 and 2013–2015. It examines Russia’s participation in meetings and its sponsorship of initiatives. It draws from a variety of council documents. It shows that earlier in the history of the council, Russia’s participation was similar to the Nordic countries. The article empirically demonstrates that Russia’s participation in the Arctic Council has increased over time.

    President Bill Clinton's Advisory Council on AIDS has urged the President to use his personal leadership to raise the level of public education, compassion, and concern about HIV/AIDS. The Council panel asked the President to make AIDS one of the most visible and continuing priorities of his presidency. The Council recommends bringing AIDS back into the public eye by holding a national summit on the scientific, medical, social, and political aspects of the epidemic. The President was also urged to preserve funding of existing Federally-sponsored AIDS programs.

  8. Research council leaders issue merit review principles, establish Global Research Council

    Science.gov (United States)

    Showstack, Randy

    2012-05-01

    The directors of research councils from 41 countries, along with representatives from the European Commission and other organizations, issued a set of merit review principles and established a virtual Global Research Council following a 14-15 May Global Summit on Merit Review that was hosted by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). The merit review principles cover six key areas: expert assessment by reviewers; transparency regarding decisions; impartiality of proposal assessments; appropriateness of the review process; confidentiality in handling proposals; and integrity and ethical consideration, which was deemed paramount to the review process. According to NSF, the merit review principles statement was developed with two primary objectives. “First, the worldwide agreement on core, high-level principles will foster international cooperation between funding agencies that support the scientific research community. Second, for those countries that are developing new funding agencies, the principles provide a global consensus on the key elements necessary for a rigorous and transparent review system.”

  12. The Kotor (Cattaro Minor council and the Saint Trinity church

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sindik Dušan I.

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available The location called Trinity is situated nearby Kotor (Cattaro, and was most probably named after the Saint Trinity Church, built at the same place. The church does not exist any more. Several documents regarding that church have been kept. One of them, written in September 1476, is subject of analysis of this contribution. As it happened, instead of a priest died in May of the same year, the church was taken care by the Minor Council upon the suggestion of the city of Kotor. The election of the same priest was performed in the Minor Council, upon suggestion of the two electors, by secret voting of all members of the Council. It seems the document to be the only one from the Archive of Kotor (today kept in the State Archive of Zadar, in which has been described the voting in the Minor Council, with presences of the two members of Council, who had voted with the golden balls (balotta aurea electionis. As it is possible to see from this case, as well as from the other documents kept in the city archives along the eastern Adriatic Coast, their role was to suggest personalities for important city duties. It is also possible to see from the document that the Minor Council of the Kotor Municipality had separated a book in which the records for the sessions or at least decisions of the Council was registered. The second interesting thing in this document is the name of the deceased priest. His name was don Matej Ćurilica, which should be understood as a nickname, given because of that he had probably served upon the Roman ritual, but in Slavic language, from the books written in Cyrillic or Glagolitic alphabet. The first name for the Glagolitic alphabet was kjurilica. There are strong reasons for presumptions that still in the first half of the 12th century the Glagolitic alphabet was in use in the regions southeast from Dubrovnik.

  13. Fiscal councils as a mechanism for establishing fiscal discipline

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Anđelković Mileva

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Under the impact of the global economic crisis, the contemporary budget systems have been subject to extensive reforms. There is a growing number of scholars advocating the establishment of fully independent fiscal institutions which would be in charge of administering a sustainable fiscal policy. The bodies available in hitherto practice are fiscal councils, parliament committees on budgetary control or fiscal 'watchdogs'. The institutionalization of fiscal councils should provide for improving the quality of the public debate on fiscal policy and make the governments more fiscally accountable. The existing fiscal councils generally have an advisory role and they are expected to contribute to strengthening the role of national parliaments in scrutinizing the national budget. In fact, the establishment of fiscal councils ensues only after introducing the fiscal rules which serve as statutory limitations on the activities of the executive branch in the budget-related matters. The current economic crisis has substantially hindered the efficient application of these fiscal restrictions. Some states see the solution in establishing independent fiscal institutions which would control the compliance with these rules. As one of the participants in the budgetary process, fiscal councils are in a position to provide better information to the voters on the current state of affairs in public finances and (thus increase the political costs of the government's fiscal unaccountability. In practice, there are several models for the organization of fiscal councils which primarily focus on ex ante or ex post review and assessment concerning whether the relevant institutions have observed the fiscal rules and accomplished the fiscal goals. Considering that their role is to eliminate the asymmetry of information in relations between the legislative and executive breach of government, fiscal councils should contribute to reinforcing the legitimacy of the budgetary

  14. [How do nurses perceive their role on health councils?].

    Science.gov (United States)

    da Silva, Marysia Alves; Lana, Francisco Carlos Felix

    2004-01-01

    This study is part of a Master's thesis on the participation of nurses on Health Councils and aims to analyze the perception nurses have of their role in these forums. A qualitative approach is used with a theoretical referential of Discourse Analysis. The subjects are nurses who have been members of Local and Municipal Health Councils in Goiânia, Goiás State, since 1995. The perceptions expressed are related to their concerns about not monopolizing the councils, about councils--especially local ones--being used for party political purposes, about avoiding corporate positions, about council autonomy, lack of infrastructure, political interference, lack of preparation on the part of professionals and the necessity of training for political quality, the contributions that they can make to discussion, reflection, group analysis, interventions and technical support. Hopeful perspectives refer to continued change in order to qualify a greater number of councilors, to the growing emancipation of people for citizenship and to the reliability of present administrations.

  15. The Director General withdraws its proposal to Council

    CERN Multimedia

    Staff Association

    2015-01-01

    Dear Colleagues, The Staff Association and the CERN-ESO Pensioners’ Association want to let you know that they are deeply worried. Decisions taken by CERN Council at its latest closed sessions attracted our attention.  Since these sessions took place behind closed doors, without the presence of the Association, we had to investigate, crossing several sources of information. Result: The attitude of some delegations shocked us and fills us with indignation. Let us recall the facts: the Management's action plan to compensate for the soaring Swiss franc against the euro, did not reach a consensus among the Member States, forcing Management to withdraw it. Strange, when one considers that CERN was the only international organization based in Switzerland to come forward with such an initiative. On the contrary, Council is once again using the Pension Fund as a “scape goat”. It should be recalled here, that past decisions by CERN Council on the Fund's manag...

  16. Multipurpose council chambers ``in the round'' poses acoustical challenges

    Science.gov (United States)

    Logsdon, Edward L.

    2003-10-01

    The City of Aurora Council Chambers is used for both municipal and public meetings. The room is configured to provide close-in seating with good sightlines from each of the 300 stadium-style seats. Presentations can be made from the central podium location to either the audience or council dais requiring multiple loudspeaker zoning and control. The cylindrical ceiling, shaped to accommodate video projection and lighting equipment, is acoustically treated to eliminate late reflections. The City Council meetings are broadcast to public TV on a regular basis from this room requiring good room acoustics and sound isolation to reduce echo and achieve acceptably low background noise levels while satisfying the aesthetic palette of the interior designers. A case history will be presented along with photographs showing how specialty wood materials, both absorptive and diffusive, were incorporated along with absorptive plaster and cloth-covered fiberglass panels into the design of the building.

    This paper summarises the factors that led to the formation of the Advisory Council on the Welfare Issues of Dog Breeding and sets out some of the challenges facing the Council. Common to all types of dog is the irresponsible way in which they can be produced, purchased and owned, and the considerable welfare problems that may arise as a direct consequence of these actions. In pedigree and purebred dogs, specific welfare problems may also be the result of the manner in which some of them are bred, as well as a variety of breed-related and inherited disorders and a number of other complex issues. These include the breeding strategies adopted, including cross-breeding for so-called 'designer dog' hybrids, and the influence of showing and judging on the production of over-exaggerated conformational features. The Advisory Council's science-based collaborative approach is key to tackling these issues. Copyright © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

  18. News from the Library: Access to CERN Council documents

    CERN Multimedia

    CERN Library

    2011-01-01

    Records of the CERN Council and its Committees are now more easily available thanks to a digitisation and cataloguing project carried out by the CERN Archive team following the CERN Council's decision in September 2008 to have all paper copies of their past documents scanned and made available electronically. Over 12,000 official documents, most of them available in both English and French, are now available here.   Optical character recognition means that the full texts, as well as the cataloguing information (metadata), are searchable - just place the prefix "fulltext:" before your search term in CDS, e.g. "fulltext:Austria". Searching the metadata for "Austria" would find just four records, while the fulltext search finds 3,320. Various combinations of metadata and fulltext searching are possible to make your search as precise as you wish; for more details see the CDS Search Guide. First meeting of the CERN Council in 1955.

  19. UN Security Council decision-making: testing the bribery hypothesis

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available Liberal-Institutionalism and Structural Realism expectations about international organizations are confronted by looking at if and how US-controlled international aid is granted, and particularly if it is related or not to political affinity and to United Nations Security Council (UNSC non-permanent membership. A preliminary assessment suggests that these relations only hold for the period of the Cold War, and, even then, only when UNSC non-permanent membership is in years in which the Security Council was deemed very important.

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available The Maramures County Council (Romania implements a computerized graphic system for assisted public management. A performing public administration is a key issue for the present local and regional development. Having an interactive graphic interface based on the county geographical map, the SIGMA2 system act as a scoreboard for the management of the County Council, as well as an integrator of different software modules that consolidate local administration data. Among its results are the automatization of different financial operations and the provision of informational support for managerial analyses and decision making.

  1. British participation in the first Solvay Councils on physics

    Science.gov (United States)

    Heilbron, J. L.

    2015-09-01

    Analysis of the makeup and contributions of the British contingents to the first two Solvay Councils can elucidate the character of British mathematical physics and its internal dynamics at a critical time in its development. The paper provides this analysis, outlines the process of selection of the participants, parses the meaning of "international" in the Solvay context, and offers an explanation of the differential attendance of the British at the two Councils. Most of those invited to the first refused whereas all but one of those invited to the second accepted. The unusual social and scientific views of Ernest Solvay help to explain this divergence.

  2. Council of the European Union from a Rational Choice Institutionalist Perspective

    This paper’s aim is to analyze the EU’s Council and the European Council as a whole from the rational choice institutionalism’s point of view. I’ll try to demonstrate through the mentioned theory that the EU’s Council has a status of a “government of the United Europe”. I’ll bring off a presentation of the EU’s Council and of the European Council and of their activity, I’ll present the “game” that goes on in the two councils (having in mind the rational choice institutionalism’s theory) and t...

  3. Patient and Citizen Innovation Council in family practice.

    2017-02-01

    Patient engagement is integral to the Patient's Medical Home model. Patient-centred care is more than what happens in the examination room. Decisions around clinic processes, work flow, and initiative prioritization also warrant a patient perspective. The Academic Family Medicine Clinic at the South Health Campus in Calgary, Alta, identified a need for patient and community advisory expertise regarding clinic initiatives and quality improvement. A council was proposed to engage patients and citizens in exploring meaningful ways to drive innovation and improve the care experience. The Academic Family Medicine Clinic partnered with the South Health Campus Patient and Family Centred Care staff in developing a dedicated family medicine patient and community council. The resulting committee of 6 volunteers and 3 staff members has delivered presentations to incoming family medicine residents and staff on the role of a patient advisory council; advised on methodology to collect and represent broad patient perspectives; provided patient-perspective input to operations management and quality improvement committees; developed a pilot patient satisfaction and experience survey; and brought additional perspective, based on learnings from other industries and professions with experience in "customer service," on how to enhance the quality of the patient experience. A patient advisory council has the potential to reach beyond simple patient engagement toward functional involvement in decision making about clinic operations.

  16. Benchmarking the financial performance of local councils in Ireland

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Robbins Geraldine

    2016-05-01

    Full Text Available It was over a quarter of a century ago that information from the financial statements was used to benchmark the efficiency and effectiveness of local government in the US. With the global adoption of New Public Management ideas, benchmarking practice spread to the public sector and has been employed to drive reforms aimed at improving performance and, ultimately, service delivery and local outcomes. The manner in which local authorities in OECD countries compare and benchmark their performance varies widely. The methodology developed in this paper to rate the relative financial performance of Irish city and county councils is adapted from an earlier assessment tool used to measure the financial condition of small cities in the US. Using our financial performance framework and the financial data in the audited annual financial statements of Irish local councils, we calculate composite scores for each of the thirty-four local authorities for the years 2007–13. This paper contributes composite scores that measure the relative financial performance of local councils in Ireland, as well as a full set of yearly results for a seven-year period in which local governments witnessed significant changes in their financial health. The benchmarking exercise is useful in highlighting those councils that, in relative financial performance terms, are the best/worst performers.

  9. Advocacy for active transport: advocate and city council perspectives

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rosenby Marieah

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Effective advocacy is an important part of efforts to increase population participation in physical activity. Research about effective health advocacy is scarce, however, the health sector can learn from the experiences and knowledge of community advocates and those who are on the receiving end of this advocacy. The aim of this study is to explore advocacy for active transport from the perspectives of community advocates and representatives from City councils. Methods Cycling and walking advocates were identified from the local contact list of Cycling Advocates Network and Living Streets Aotearoa. Semi-structured telephone interviews were conducted with cycle and walking advocates from throughout New Zealand. Advocates also nominated a suitable council officer at their local City council to be interviewed. Interviews were recorded and transcribed and categories of responses for each of the questions created. Results Several processes were used by advocates to engage with council staff, including formal council submissions, meetings, stakeholder forums and partnership in running community events promoting active transport. Several other agencies were identified as being influential for active transport, some as potential coalition partners and others as potential adversaries. Barriers to improving conditions for active transport included a lack of funding, a lack of will-power among either council staff or councillors, limited council staff capacity (time or training and a culture of providing infrastructure for motor vehicles instead of people. Several suggestions were made about how the health sector could contribute to advocacy efforts, including encouraging political commitment, engaging the media, communicating the potential health benefits of active transport to the general public and being role models in terms of personal travel mode choice and having workplaces that support participation in active transport
