Subjects/Keywords: Social Perceptions; International Students Persons with DisabilitiesAbstract This research project measured the social perceptions of international students from Saint Cloud State University; (SCSU); a regional comprehensive university in the Midwest; as well as; non-international participants about persons with disabilities. Participants completed the four-hour “Embracing the Difference: The ABILITY Event” held by the Rehabilitation Counseling Graduate Department at SCSU. The researcher used a pre and post-survey to determine the perceptions students and community members hold towards people with disabilities. The primary goal of this project was to evaluate if social perceptions changed by the international students; and in what areas. Areas assessed were work; relationships; and general communication. International participant responses were compared to those of the domestic participants. The “Embracing the Difference: The ABILITY Event” had two main components: 1) Experiential Learning Scenarios (ELS) which are hands on experiences facilitated by person(s) who live with the specific physical; emotional and/or mental inconveniences; and vendors in the field of disability; and 2) a Post-ELS "Panel; " lead by ELS facilitators. It was hypothesized that international students would show an increase in all areas of the post surveys. Furthermore; it was hypothesized that all participants would show an increase in their social perceptions of persons with physical; emotional and mental inconveniences. While not all areas of the post-survey were statistically significant; overall participants perceptions changed from a stereotypical stigma to a more positive view after participating in the "Embracing the Difference: The ABILITY event!"

Treatment for dual diagnosis is best when the treatment of each disorder is integrated into one program. There are various forms of dual diagnosis treatment that were explored. Existing dual diagnosis treatment research will be presented. The purpose of the study is to evaluate an existing dual diagnosis and severe mental illness program that provides integrated mental health and substance abuse treatment. The research design is a pre-experimental one group pretest posttest design (Campbell & Stanley, 1963). Fifty-two people were studied to determine the program effectiveness. The effectiveness of the program was determined by analyzing the data collected on the consumers’ pretest and posttest measures. The measures used in the research were the BASIS-32, MAI, BHS, BDI, and CAR. Subjects in the study had a mean age of 30. There were 18 females and 34 males. Of the participants, 11.3% had schizophrenia, 13.2% had schizoaffective disorder, 7.5% had bipolar, 11.3% had depression, 5.7% had substance abuse, 43.4% had a dual diagnosis with mental illness and substance abuse, and 5.7% had schizotypal personality disorder. The average length of stay for the consumers was 4 months of treatment. All clients were prescribed medications at discharge with the exception of one client. The results of the study indicate that the BASIS-32 showed statistically significant improvement in results for subjects from pretest to posttest. All other inventories yielded changes that were not statistically significant. Treating dually diagnosed clients in an integrated treatment center is imperative to decrease duplication of services, mixed messages, and exacerbation of problems. In this study, the dual diagnosis program was seen to have some efficacy in treatment. Limitations of the study include a low N, which affects the power of the study to determine statistically significant changes in client inventory scores from pretest to posttest. Other limitations include no comparison group nor any control group. Despite the limitations, the study demonstrates that people improve while in dual diagnosis treatment, even those clients with a single diagnosis.","Kevin DeWeaver","Kevin DeWeaver; Patricia Reeves; Edwin Risler",PhD,Sociology,"Social Work",arnold_tara_g_200305_phd,http://purl.galileo.usg.edu/uga_etd/arnold_tara_g_200305_phd,eng,uga,public,"Dual diagnosis; Treatment; SMI; Research; Substance Abuse; BASIS-32; MAI; BHS; CAR; BDI-II.",,"Evaluation of an innovative dual diagnosis program : Skyland Trail's Operation Prevention (STOP).",Dissertation +,10724/20051,"Aten, Nancy Marie",2003-05,"Ecological landscape rehabilitation is explored in cities, especially the significance of scale, and the sense of place that is encouraged through the use of an indigenous vegetation model. The natural landscape and natural processes in cities have been modified beyond recognition, simplified, and obscured; however, the dependence of people on those processes and resources remains in a critical, tenuous, and not completely understood balance. In process-based ecological restoration, considerations of scale are related to ecosystem spatial characteristics and potential connectivity of restored patches. In cities, with unbuilt ground in very small fragments, the idea of a whole ecological landscape integrated with dense human population encourages consideration of larger scale rehabilitation. A process of ecological rehabilitation at a neighborhood scale is suggested, toward “success” in ecological and social terms, by considering case study neighborhoods in central city Milwaukee, their characteristics relevant to landscape rehabilitation, and oak savanna as a vegetation model.","Darrel Morrison","Darrel Morrison; Ian Firth; Kathleen Parker; Susan Mudd",MLA,"College of Environment and Design","Landscape Architecture",aten_nancy_m_200305_mla,http://purl.galileo.usg.edu/uga_etd/aten_nancy_m_200305_mla,eng,uga,public,"Urban Ecology; Oak Savanna; Ecological Restoration; Landscape Scale; Milwaukee",,"City neighborhood and Oak Savanna",Thesis +,10724/20051,"Austin, Rebecca Lynne",2003-05,"Transnational environmentalism has traditionally been considered an environmentalism that emphasizes the conservation of "nature," not social justice and the empowerment of local peoples. On Palawan Island, Philippines, the linkages between meso-level environmental Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and local fisherfolk are the primary foundation for social justice, food security, and the empowerment of local peoples through community-based coastal resources management (CBCRM). This suggests that these linkages are the basis for CBCRM, which focuses more on social justice, and less on scientific, technocratic, or preservationist approaches to resource management. Since the People Power movement and the new Philippine Constitution of 1987 the democratic space in the Philippines became especially conducive to communitybased resource management. My research is significant because it fills several gaps in the literature on environmentalism. First, the relationship between meso-level NGOs and local communities is rarely addressed in analyses of environmental movements, which are usually focused primarily on either transnational discourses or local case studies. Second, most contemporary environmental movements have focused more on the conservation of nature, and not on social justice and the empowerment of local peoples. Third, there is a dearth of literature on coastal environmentalism. Palawan in particular has received international attention for its high biological diversity and is host to a growing number of coastal environmental programs. Recently, environmentalism has begun to emphasize the conservation and regeneration of the world’s oceans and coastal zones. Utilizing tools and perspectives from cultural anthropology and other disciplines, this research analyzes the linkages between NGOs and local peoples. Unlike projections made by early critiques of NGOs, many Palawan environmental advocacy NGOs started as volunteer organizations, and with the infusion of donor funding have not “sold out” advocacy to become project mangers. On Palawan, hybrid NGOs have maintained advocacy positions and activities while taking on project management roles. The research suggests that fisherfolk become empowered through relationships with and information learned from NGOs along with government agencies, and will likely maintain those relationships for effective resource management as opposed to an ideal held by NGO environmentalists for autonomous self-determination.","J.

The rats received daily training consisting of forced-choice visits to four baited arms, a retention interval, and the availability of all eight arms with baits available at arms that did not appear in the forced-choice phase. The radial maze was placed in a featureless octagonal enclosure to minimize the availability of extramaze cues. Intramaze cues were provided at the distal end of each arm by placing a small object in front of the food trough; unique objects were randomly sampled from a large pool of objects. The use of extramaze and intramaze cues was assessed by rotating the objects, after the retention interval, on occasional non-rewarded probes, thereby dissociating the location of extramaze and intramaze cues. The rats used extramaze rather than intramaze cues.

Most of the debate surrounding transcendental arguments has centered on their failure to accomplish what their advocates intend them to accomplish. They are typically called upon to settle decisively the philosophical difficulties they address by establishing necessary metaphysical claims through a consideration of the conditions of the possibility of epistemological premises. That is, transcendental arguments make a claim about reality, what is actually the case, based upon appearance, what is believed to be the case or how things seem. In Chapters One and Two, I will give an account of the chief characteristics and structure of transcendental arguments and provide several canonical exemplars, which will exhibit not only different manifestations that transcendental arguments can take but also the issues they have been used to address. The most common criticism of transcendental arguments is that they are not able to span the justificatory gap between appearance and reality or to accomplish the seemingly impossible task of moving from mind to world. In Chapter Three, I will consider criticisms of transcendental arguments, focusing on the most common criticism given by Barry Stroud. In light of Stroud’s trenchant criticism, recent work reveals an optimistic undertone by some philosophers who would promote a more moderate use of transcendental arguments. Rather than establish necessary claims about reality, transcendental arguments reveal necessary epistemological connections. I will argue that although these moderate versions are indeed legitimate as transcendental arguments, there is no need to discard the more ambitious version. Through the work of John McDowell, I will show how Stroud’s criticism can be overcome, thereby removing the incentive to endorse moderate versions as substitutes for ambitious versions and placing renewed confidence in transcendental argumentation. In Chapter Three, I will present and offer a critique of these moderate versions. In Chapters Four, Five, and Six, I will consider McDowell’s work in my defense of transcendental arguments against the criticisms previously noted.","O. Bradley Bassler","O.

The study seeks to add to our understanding of the effect that internal organizational characteristics and external environmental factors can have on an organization’s choice to become involved in the policy process through the courts. The study uses a three-part analysis to understand the court-based advocacy of these groups, using three research questions for the study: (1) Over a period of ten years, what factors affect the choice of charitable nonprofit advocacy groups to participate in the courts? (2) What factors explain the annual frequency of the court-based advocacy of charitable nonprofit advocacy groups? (3) Of the charitable nonprofit advocacy groups that choose to participate in the courts, what factors affect the legal strategy choices they make on individual cases? To examine these questions, I collected court involvement data and organizational characteristic data on all charities in the United States that claimed to be involved in advocacy activities and whose annual income exceeded approximately three million dollars. The study finds that when considered from a cumulative perspective, over a period of ten years, internal organizational characteristics, including the presence of dues-paying members, are important in explaining the differences between charities that chose to advocate in court in the 1990s and those that did not. However, when considering court-based advocacy from an annual or case-level perspective, external environmental factors, including the regulatory and political environments, have a greater influence on charities.","Susan Haire; Scott Ainsworth","Susan Haire; Scott Ainsworth; Audrey Haynes; Jeff Brudney; Stefanie Lindquist; Hal Rainey",PhD,"Political Science","Political Science",basinger_nancy_w_200305_phd,http://purl.galileo.usg.edu/uga_etd/basinger_nancy_w_200305_phd,eng,uga,public,"Nonprofit Advocacy; Interest Groups in Court; Charities and Public Policy",,"Charities in court : the advocacy efforts of charitable nonprofit organizations in the judicial venue - when? how? and how much?",Dissertation +,10724/20051,"Bates, Benjamin Roswell",2003-05,"The Arab-Israeli conflict has long been presented as eternal and irresolvable. A rhetorical history argues that the standard narrative can be challenged by considering it a series of rhetorical problems. These rhetorical problems can be reconstructed by drawing on primary sources as well as publicly presented texts. A methodology for doing rhetorical history that draws on Michael Calvin McGee's fragmentation thesis is offered. Four theoretical concepts (the archive, institutional intent, peripheral text, and center text) are articulated. British Colonial Office archives, London Times coverage, and British Parliamentary debates are used to interpret four publicly presented rhetorical acts. In 1915-7, Britain issued the Balfour Declaration and the McMahon-Hussein correspondence. Although these documents are treated as promises in the standard narrative, they are ambiguous declarations. As ambiguous documents, these texts offer opportunities for constitutive readings as well as limiting interpretations. In 1922, the Mandate for Palestine was issued to correct this vagueness. Rather than treating the Mandate as a response to the debate between realist foreign policy and self-determination, Winston Churchill used epideictic rhetoric to foreclose a policy discussion in favor of a vote on Britain's honour. As such, the Mandate did not account for Wilsonian drives in the post-War international sphere. After Arab riots and boycotts highlighted this problem, a commission was appointed to investigate new policy approaches. In the White Paper of 1939, a rhetoric of investigation limited Britain's consideration of possible policies. By extending investigation to the limits of kairos, advocates of partition formulated policy without discussing other potential solutions. At the expiration of the White Paper, Britain withdrew from Palestine. As such, in 1947, the United Nations issued Resolution 181 to divide Palestine into two states. United Nations action was possible only because Britain articulated a rhetoric of failure and an end to Empire. None of these four policies was a panacea; each may have enhanced the problem of Palestine. In the conclusion, lessons from Britain's experience are applied to the current American approach to Palestine. Centering George W. Bush's Rose Garden Speech, and drawing on the Mitchell Commission Report and the Tenet Plan, indicates that consideration of ambiguity, epideictic rhetoric, rhetorics of investigation, and rhetorics of failure should be made when evaluating peace proposals.","Celeste Condit","Celeste Condit; Thomas Lessl; John Murphy; Kevin DeLuca; Loch Johnson",PhD,"Speech Communication","Speech Communication",bates_benjamin_r_200305_phd,http://purl.galileo.usg.edu/uga_etd/bates_benjamin_r_200305_phd,eng,uga,public,"Rhetorical history; Palestine; British Empire; Middle East; Late colonial period; Interwar decolonization",,"A rhetorical history of the British Consitution of Israel, 1917-1948",Dissertation +,10724/20051,"Baugher, Eric Brandon",2003-05,"Conventional historic preservation of military artifacts and sites is typically limited to presenting technological context and/or official military history.

Quartz mica schists and mica schists have experienced two prograde, Barrovian style, amphibolite grade metamorphic events (M1, M2) and a fluid enhanced metasomatic event (M3). M1 is defined by a relict metamorphic assemblage of garnet-staurolite. A second period of garnet growth and the development of muscovite-biotite define the S2 foliation and the M2 assemblage. M3 is indicated by the minerals calcite, chlorite and epidote which are commonly found in crosscutting veins. Three ductile deformational events (D2, D3, and D4) produced a strong penetrative foliation, (S2), tight to close folds, (F3), and open to gentle folds, (F4); a later brittle event (D5) produced fractures and psuedotachylyte.","Michael Roden","Michael Roden; Alberto Patino-Douce; Sandra Wyld",MS,Geology,Geology,bedell_adam_l_200305_ms,http://purl.galileo.usg.edu/uga_etd/bedell_adam_l_200305_ms,eng,uga,public,"Brevard; fault zone; georgia; metamorphism; deformation,petrology; shear zone; petrography",,"Polymetamorphism and deformation within the brevard fault zone outside of Atlanta, Georgia",Thesis +,10724/20051,"Beeny, Claudia K.",2003-05,"Increased demands on higher education to demonstrate institutional effectiveness have required increased pressure on student affairs practitioners to contribute to the educational mission of undergraduate education by providing educationally purposeful experiences in the co-curriculum. Based heavily on Astin’s theory of involvement (1984) and numerous national reports addressing educational excellence, this study examines students’ intensity of involvement and organization expectations as two variables influencing perceived learning in the co-curriculum. A total of 437 sophomores, juniors, and seniors completed an 87- item survey primarily using Likert scales to gather information in three areas: (a) the amount of physical and psychological energy exerted by students on the organization, (b) students’ perceptions of skills and competencies gained due to group membership, and (c) students’ perceptions of organization expectations. Data were analyzed using Pearson’s correlations, regression, one-way ANOVA, and t-tests. Results indicated statistically significant correlations between intensity of involvement and perceived learning, as well as expectations and perceived learning. Regression questions yielded no statistically significant findings, indicating that perceived learning could not be predicted by expectations and involvement variables when combined, nor could intensity of involvement be predicted by expectation and intensity of involvement variables when combined. T-tests run on all variables suggested that three expectation variables – high expectations, consistent and clear feedback, and joined the organization expecting to learn were most important when explaining students’ perceived learning in the co-curriculum. ANOVA tests revealed that presidents and vice presidents of organizations perceived higher levels of learning than did other students in the organization, yet student expectations for learning did not vary based on position in the organization. Implications of research findings were discussed and recommendations for future practice were made, including suggestions such as continued study of non-formal modes as they relate to the co-curriculum, the use of curriculum development models normally used by faculty to develop curricular plans in the co-curriculum, implementation of policies and practices that promote increased student invo lvement, further exploration of the practices of student organization advisors, improved training for student organization advisors, and continued investigation into how the prevalence of hierarchical structures among student organizations impacts learning in the co-curriculum.","Diane L.

While this guarantee improves the correctness and security of array-based code, it adds overhead to array references. This performance limitation is a signifi- cant obstacle preventing the scientific community from adopting compiler-enforced array bounds checks. To reduce the overhead, we have created an abstraction that called Index Confinement Regions (ICRs). The basic idea is to place an array into a very large virtual memory region, such that any reference to the array is confined to the region. Only the portion of the ICR corresponding to the array is permissible to access. ICRs reduce the number of necessary bounds checks for n-dimensional array access from 2n to 1 for C, and from n to 0 for Java, yielding a significant reduction in execution time for array-intensive applications.","David K.

To learn more about the consequences of jealousy expression, this project proposes and tests four potential cognitive and emotional reactions to another’s jealousy expression. Specifically, general partner uncertainty, relational uncertainty, jealousy-related emotion, and rumination are predicted to arise when one’s close relational partner expresses jealousy. These reactions are examined in relation to relational context (i.e., dating partnership, sibling relationship, and cross-sex friendship) and jealousy expression type (i.e., integrative communication, distributive communication, and negative affect expression). Uncertainty findings revealed that cross-sex friends were more uncertain about the partner and the relationship than either siblings or daters after another expresses jealousy. Siblings experienced greater relational uncertainty than did dating partners when reacting to another’s jealousy expression. In addition, another’s use of negative affect expression was related to greater partner and relational uncertainty compared with another’s use of integrative communication. For jealousy-related emotion, siblings and dating partners experienced stronger jealousy-related emotion compared with cross-sex friends, though jealousyrelated emotion levels did not differ according to jealousy expression type. In terms of rumination, when one’s partner used distributive communication or negative affect expression to communicate jealousy, that individual ruminated more than if integrative communication was used. Rumination levels did not differ according to relational context. In addition, a reaction model of jealousy is presented that specifies the order in which these reactions occur after one’s close partner expresses jealousy. After one’s partner expresses jealousy, that individual first experiences general partner uncertainty, followed by relational uncertainty. Next, the individual ruminates about the jealousy expression and then finally experiences jealousy-related emotion. These results broaden jealousy expression research to include consequences of jealousy expression.","Jerold Hale","Jerold Hale; Kenzie Cameron; Jennifer Monahan; Michael Kernis; Tina Harris",PhD,"Speech Communication","Speech Communication",bevan_jennifer_l_200305_phd,http://purl.galileo.usg.edu/uga_etd/bevan_jennifer_l_200305_phd,eng,uga,public,"Jealousy expression; General partner uncertainty; Relational uncertainty; Jealousy emotion; Rumination; Sibling relationships; Cross-sex friendships; Dating relationships",,"Intrapersonal consequences of another's jealousy expression : toward a reaction model of jealousy in close relationships",Dissertation +,10724/20051,"Boehmer, Beatrice ",2003-05,"We analyze allocations to institutional and retail investors in 441 initial public offerings (IPOs) and test whether institutions obtain IPOs with superior long-run performance. In addition to favorable first-day returns that were documented previously, we show that institutions also obtain more allocations in IPOs with better long-term performance. Moreover, we examine whether institutions possess better information than retail investors once trading has begun by analyzing how actual flipping by institutional and retail investors relates to long-run IPO performance. In contrast to previous research, we find no significant relationship between institutional or retail flipping and returns. Both results lend strong support to bookbuilding theories. In the second part, we examine the determinants of IPO-related securities-fraud lawsuits. Using duration analysis, we find that not only variables known at the time of the IPO predict the filing of subsequent lawsuits but also information that changes over time and becomes available after the IPO. Furthermore, we provide additional evidence on the lawsuit-avoidance theory of underpricing (Tinic (1988)).

Due to numerous limitations of 2D-GE, high-throughput alternatives have been sought out. Shotgun proteomics allows for the analysis of an entire proteome simultaneously through batch digestion of whole-cell lysates. Proteins can be identified from the resulting complex mixture from accurate mass measurements of their constituent peptides. Fourier transform mass spectrometry (FTMS) is capable of achieving the part-per-million mass accuracy and ultra-high mass resolution needed for these measurements.

In this study, the effects of tillage and earthworm activity on SOM and carbon (C) protection were investigated. In the first experiment, the objective was to study the mechanisms by which C is protected under no-tillage (NT) management, using 14C-labeled plant residue. Aggregate-size distribution, total C, and 14C were measured together with different pools of aggregate-associated C and 14C from 21-d laboratory incubations of intact and crushed macro-and microaggregates. The results indicated that (i) more young C (14C) is accumulated in the subsurface soil of conventional tillage (CT) than NT, but this C is not stabilized in the long term, and (ii) short- and long-term stabilization of C is higher in the soil surface layers under NT compared with CT. This C stabilization occurs mainly at the microaggregate level. The objectives of the next set of experiments were to investigate the effects of different earthworm species (Aporrotedea caliginosa and Lumbricus rubellus) on aggregation, aggregate-associated C pools and the formation of stable microaggregates within macroaggregates. Two incubations were set up. The first incubation consisted of soil samples crushed <; 250 µm to break up all macroaggregates with three treatments: (i) control soil; (ii) soil + 13C-labeled residue; and (iii) soil + 13C-labeled residue + earthworms. After 20 days, aggregate size distribution was measured and microaggregates (53-250 µm) were isolated out of the formed macroaggregates (>; 250 µm). A second incubation was conducted to determine protected versus unprotected total C and 13C from 21-day laboratory incubations of intact and crushed macro- and microaggregates. The results indicated that microaggregates are rapidly formed within earthworm casts and showed the direct involvement of earthworms in inducing an important protection of soil C at the microaggregate level. The results also suggested that important interactions between earthworm species take place affecting the incorporation of fresh residue-derived C and the formation of stable microaggregates when fresh residue was placed on the surface.","Paul F.

Low and high sperm mobility phenotypes were identified within populations of broiler breeders. The phenotypes were not independent of age, yet remained distinct. Computer-assisted sperm motion analysis explained the mobility of sperm populations in terms of individual sperm cell motility. Fertility differed between phenotypes by 25%. Sperm from low mobility males contained more aberrant mitochondria when evaluated with transmission electron microscopy. Finally, males with heavier body weights had lower sperm mobility (P<; 0.0001). In summary, sperm mobility is indicative of semen quality in commercial broiler breeders. However, due to the negative relationship between body weight and sperm mobility, males should not be selected based upon sperm mobility alone.","Jeanna L. Wilson","Jeanna L.

In order to appreciate both approaches, each method was used to model the kinetics of various compounds. The pharmacokinetics of the nucleoside analog (2S, 4R)-1-2-[2- (hydroxymethyl)-1,3-dioxolan-4-yl]-5-iodouracil (IOddU), a potent in vitro antagonist of Epstein-Barr virus replication, were investigated. Total (mean ( † ± rsd)) and renal clearance after iv administration were 1.44 (0.588) and 0.69 (0.46) L/h/kg in six male Sprague-Dawley rats. Volume of distribution was 0.643 (0.619) L/kg. MRT (h), † lz (min- 1), and fraction of dose excreted in urine were 0.510 (0.527), 1.08 (0.714), and 47.8%. Iohexol is a radio contrast agent eliminated solely by glomerular filtration. In order to support development of a clean, simple, and precise means of determining glomerular filtration rate in dogs, the plasma clearance of iohexol was compared with urinary creatinine clearance at different levels of obesity (lean, fattened, and obese). Absolute plasma clearance of iohexol increased with obesity as expected; body weight adjusted plasma clearance of iohexol did not increase significantly. A three point method sampling in the terminal phase overpredicted urinary creatinine clearance slightly. The nucleoside analogs, 3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine and (-)-2',3'-dideoxy-3'- thiacytidine (AZT, 3TC) are potent inhibitors of feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) for which lymph tissues serve as viral sanctuaries. The lymphatic disposition of AZT and 3TC in cats were determined. Lymph tissues included were tonsil, thymus, submandibular, bronchiolar, sternal, and mesenteric lymph nodes. Mean overall lymph tissue concentrations of AZT and 3TC were 8.13 (0.79) and 7.74 (0.66). Tissue to plasma concentration ratios were 0.36 (0.76) and 0.44 (0.51) for AZT and 3TC. Bromodichloromethane is a hepatic carcinogen present in chlorinated drinking water. A physiologically based pharmacokinetic model was developed to simulate concentrations in plasma and tissues of the Japanese Medaka fish (Orynchias latipes).

Subjects/Keywords: Alat za livenje pod pritiskom, legura aluminijuma, lepljenje livene legure, korozija, habanje, dupleks tretman, topografija površine; Corrosion resistance and soldering tendency of different materials in moltenAl–Si–Cu alloy were studied. Hot-working tool steel, plasma nitrided steel andduplex layers with CrN, TiAlN, TiAlSiN and CrAlN top coatings, which wereproduced to various degree of surface roughness, were covered by the study.An ejection test was employed for investigation of the concerned phenomena.The ejection test was improved in order to increase its accuracy and thereliability of process simulation. Samples were examined in both short andextended periods of contact (5 and 20 min) with liquid casting. Castingsolidification was extended in order to intensify the corrosion effects. Contraryto common findings, it was found that the ejection force of the investigatedmaterials does not depend on their chemical composition. For the coatedsamples, a pronounced dependence of the ejection force on the surfaceroughness was found. The ejection force increases with decrease in surfaceroughness. All investigated coatings are prone to mechanical soldering by Al–Si–Cu alloy. Still, their corrosion resistance substantially exceeds the corrosionresistance of steel and plasma nitrided layer. Longer exposure of coatedsamples to cast alloy induced lower ejection forces, which is a consequenceof coatings oxidation. It was found that the investigated coatings are inert toliquid aluminium. However, the underlying material undergoes oxidation andcorrosion through coating growth defects. The findings concerning the wearmechanisms of protective layers support further development of duplex layersintended for die casting tools protection.

 Käibekohustused on inimeste kooseksisteerimise ohutuse tagamiseks kohtupraktika kaudu loodud käitumisreeglid. Erinevaid mõiste määratlusi summeerides võib öelda, et käibekohustus tähendab deliktiõiguses arusaamist, et isikul, kes loob… (more)

Subjects/Keywords: võlaõigus; õigusrikkumised; vastutus; õigusloome; Eesti; law of obligations; violations of law; liability; legislation; Estonia; One expression of defining objective standard of care is the concept of duty to maintain safety, which is based on a legally binding obligation, in the form of a general clause that affects everyone, to conduct himself or herself in a way so as to not harm the legal rights of others, as protected by law, more than necessary and acceptable in the shared life of people. By summarising different definitions, the duty to maintain safety in tort law means the understanding that the person, who creates a danger or controls a dangerous situation and allows the danger to persist, is required to employ all reasonably necessary and appropriate measures in order to protect other persons and their rights against the realisation of danger. As regards the attempts to avoid risks the general assumptions, which apply irrespective of the specific facts of an individual case, three key criteria are especially relevant: the degree of severity of potential damage, likelihood of damage, and the resources needed to prevent or remove the risk. Although liability based on violations of the duties to maintain safety is an organic part of Estonian tort law, it is still quite vague and hidden due to scarcity of case law. It would therefore be worth considering of setting out legal provisions so as to better perceive the possibility of liability based on such a duties. Bunching together general citeria that compose the objective standard of conduct would help to provide such a ground and relevant regulation contained in Articles 4:102 and 4:103 of the PETL may serve as an example. In addition to the clarification of an objective standard of conduct, the current legal provisions constructing the bases of liability based on the general composition of delict should also be specified from the same perspective. Unlike the methodological teaching modelled in the BGB, in solving cases based on violation of the duty to maintain safety by Estonian law, a presumption of the violation the duty must be applied to keep in accordance with the general rule provided in §1050 (1) of the LOA. The main advantages of this approach are that the burden of proving a negative fact is removed from the injured party and the burden is placed on the party to the procedure in whose internal sphere the facts needing proof are found; simplicity of the court procedure; more reliable evidence; and preventive impact on the violation of the duties to maintain safety.

Subjects/Keywords: The purpose of this qualitative action research; case study was to understand literacy practices connected to popular culture of sixth grade students and to explore what happened when a teacher and students integrated students' popular culture interests into an English Language Arts curriculum. Sociocultural theories; constructivism; popular culture theories; and 21st Century literacy theories framed this study. This research represented a single-case action research study of two sixth grade classes. There were a total of 40 students participating in the study; ranging from ages 10 to 11. Data were collected from a variety of sources over an extended period of time in order to help create a complete picture of the impacts of popular culture integrated into language arts curriculum. These sources included: a researcher's journal; student questionnaires and interest surveys; focus group interviews; individual interviews; student work samples; and Hawaiʻi State Assessment data. Upon analysis; nine big ideas emerged from the data. The results showed there to be positive social-emotional classroom environment; one in which students felt empowered and demonstrated critical thinking in all aspects of the formal curriculum. In exploring students' popular culture interests and connections to schooling; there were some differences noted between gender and it was also observed that students faced influences from both parents and peers in their interests and pleasures in popular culture. Finally; the impact on me; the teacher researcher was a transformation of practice and subsequent empowerment.

Subjects/Keywords: The purpose of this master thesis is to present a comparison between the factors that affects an environmental investment. This is done through applying a theoretical framework on the factors affecting a company’s existing appraisal model for environmental investments. The company that was a part of this thesis asked at an initial stage for confidentiality; therefore it is called the Company in this thesis. The Company that contributes with the appraisal model is a multination-al group with operations in many different industries; but with a focus on the Nordic countries and products that may be linked to the agricultural sector. The theoretical framework has its base in the concepts of value and investments and their connection to the environment and the envi-ronmental investment. The identified factors in the theoretical framework are:; Investeringsbedömning; miljöinvesteringar; påverkande faktorer; miljö; investering

Subjects/Keywords: Today’s world is more complex than ever before. Negotiations that were once focused on one or two isolated issues now encompass multiple sectors and an increasing number of parties. Negotiators must constantly make decisions based on uncertain and changing information – decisions that often have irreversible impacts on relationships and deal outcomes. Training policymakers; business leaders; and nonprofits to negotiate in an evolving 21st century has never been more important or challenging. Dragonfly Negotiations & Consulting is a client-based company that works with organizations in order to impart negotiation and leadership skills. Dragonfly provides training for clients that are focused on advancing social change within their respective fields – organizations that are often operating on the cutting edge of complicated social policies. Dragonfly; along with the vast majority of other negotiation consulting firms and academic negotiation courses; primarily relies on simulations to teach negotiation skills and lessons. Simulations; a form of experiential learning; are particularly prevalent in negotiation training given the important role that soft skills and social processes play in mastering the field. Yet despite the increase in complexity found in today’s realworld negotiations; simulations have failed to similarly evolve. This report seeks to answer how Dragonfly can best design and implement simulations that teach its clients to negotiate in an exceedingly complicated world. In order to do so; a gap-analysis of presently available simulations was performed; derived by creating a framework that isolated the architectural components found in different types of negotiation simulations. These findings indicate that though a substantial number of simulations involve multiple parties and nonscorable interests; very few simulations contain the dynamic complexity of real-world negotiations. To form recommendations for how Dragonfly can design future complex simulations; the unique features of real-world negotiations were identified and combined with pedagogical theories deconstructed from existing simulations. Supplementing these recommendations; this report provides a proposed simulation example that incorporates a new; complex design; as well as potential criteria to evaluate the success of future simulations. To assist Dragonfly in implementing these recommendations; a barriers analysis was conducted to help overcome potential issues.

Subjects/Keywords: The following question can be raised: Are parliaments still the true bearers of the legislative power; or paraphrasing Hobbes: it is assumed who the legislator is; but is it also known? The subject of this thesis are the limits that parliaments are facing today while exercising their normative roles. These limitations are both internal and external; and may be traditional or of new origin. Today efficiency and speed are key expectations; it seems that parliaments as legislators are losing their breath and are facing many limitations in their role that has for centuries been their ”basic one”: their legislative role. The fact that the focus of power is increasingly shifting towards the executive branch of power even in countries with parliamentary systems of governance is not a novelty anymore. Parliaments; however; do not only face the limits placed before them by the governments throughout the legislative process. The key role of political parties; the relativization of the classical concept of sovereignty; and other limiting factors of the legislative role of parliaments; which need further examination; may lead to the modification of their functions in modern states. The aim of the dissertation is to through thoroughly selected scientific sources and relying on a decade-long experience as Member of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia precisely determine and rationally examine and draft an academic position about the role of parliaments today with regard to the limitations in their legislative function. We started off from the hypothesis that the legislative function of parliaments is set by the constitution; and narrowed by the ever increasing role of the governments in the legislative process; by political parties and other participants in the legislative procedure; as well as by the relativization of national sovereignty in the framework of international integration and also by the impact of global economic flows.

Subjects/Keywords: EAST AFRICAN COMMUNITY; CUSTOMS UNION; NAIROBI CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT; “The world is a global village” is a common phrase that goes around nowadays. Borders are beginning to become less and less restrictive as countries realize the benefits of less restriction to cross border trade. The European Union has paved a path that countries around the world might follow in the next few years to come. The East African region nations are united in a customs union in a bid to increase the ease of cross border trade between Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. The East African Community (EAC) was formed in 2001, revamped after a collapse in 1977. It was officially launched in 2005. Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania resolved to create an enabling environment to attract foreign investors, allow private and civil society to play a leading role in development and to stimulate trade between the three countries. They signed a customs union protocol in March 2004. This paper surveys retail institutions in Nairobi’s Central Business District (NCBD) in a bid to establish the perceptions of traders to the East Africa Community Customs Union and the factors that influence this perception. Chapter 1 of the study provides a brief background on the East African Community, its origins and the formation of the customs union. It also provided an insight into retail trade in Nairobi. The chapter also defines the problem. Chapter 2 builds the theoretical framework of the problem by providing literary works on regional integration, its benefits and flaws; the effect of customs union; and trade within the EAC. Chapter 3 defines the research methodology of the study. The fourth chapter presents the data analysis and findings of the study. The analysis entails primarily quantitative methods of analysis. The findings are then discussed in Chapter 5, which is a summary of findings, conclusions and recommendations.

Subjects/Keywords: The main objective of this study is to assess the impact of small scale irrigation on socioeconomic development of the society in Kemisse Zone, Dewa Cheffa Woreda. The study employed survey method and personal observation to collect socio-economic data. Farming household and key informant were interviewed to collect primary data. In addition, relevant literature and essential documents that was useful for the study were reviewed. The analysis which was conducted amongst the same respondents before introduction of irrigation, allowed for the comparison in order to identify the impact after introduction of irrigation project. Also, the social and economic impact was assessed that used to assess the impact of small scale irrigation in the study area. The result reveals that small scale irrigation have an impact on social and economic well being of households. The skill of farmers after introduction of irrigation was better than that of before introduction of irrigation such as, plowing, threshing, harvesting, use of agronomic practice. All the farm households are worked in their farm on the daily basis, which is a big change as compared to before introduction the schemes. Land use intensity and crop diversification was improved due to irrigation. Land use intensity improved due to increases in acreage of main crop as well as cultivating at both seasons. Crop diversification was also observed as a result of irrigation development in the study area. Almost the entire farm household increased producing multi item and market oriented types of crop two cycles per a year. The study finding highlights that small-scale irrigation for food security enhancement, high yield obtained in irrigation and other benefit such as increased income, employment opportunity, crop diversification, land use intensity, and the like are indication that small-scale irrigation can bring sustainable agriculture and economic development in the study area. But issues related to small size of farm plot, input supply, market situation, reservoir capacity to enrich irrigation water for all user groups, crop water requirement, ways of water distribution for users and infrastructure can affect the sustainability; small-scale irrigation schemes.

Subjects/Keywords: Borrelia lonestari; a putative agent of southern tick-associated rash illness (STARI); was first isolated in 2003 from Amblyomma americanum ticks. We used a low passage isolate (LS-1) to inoculate white-tailed deer; mice; cattle; and dogs. Evidence of infection was evaluated via examination of Giemsa and acridine orange stained blood smears; polymerase chain reaction (PCR); indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) test; and/or culture isolation. In each of two deer; spirochetes were visualized stained blood smears; blood was PCR positive up to 19 days post-infection; antibodies were produced; and the organism was re-isolated from blood. Evidence of an active infection was not detected in mice; calves; or dogs. These results show that white-tailed deer are susceptible to infection with B. lonestari and develop a spirochetemia; while mice; calves; and dogs apparently do not. Additional tick transmission studies are needed to evaluate the role of deer as reservoir hosts of B. lonestari.

Jednoduchým variováním; jsem hledal návaznost tvarů mezi barely a začal jsem je stavět na sebe. Jednotlivé spoje jsem svařil; a aby na sebe tvary opravdu navazovaly; potáhl jsem je laminátem se skelným vláknem. Tímto postupem; jsem se dopracoval do výšky zhruba 5; 5 m. Tento rozměr už dělá z věci celkem masivní a manipulačně náročný objekt; který je náročný na stabilitu. Tím jsem na spodní část byl nucen připevnit ocelový kříž. Tento nosný kříž bude pojednán tak; aby nerušil věc jak vizuálně; tak koncepčně. Celý objekt je následně potažen laminátem a skelným vláknem pro zpevnění celého korpusu a pro získání různorodější a hrubší výsledné struktury.; In my thesis; I would like to show the procedure to which I got with this technique. Implodováním six discarded barrels from a laminate formed the so-called six parts of the puzzle. A simple variováním; I was looking for continuity between the barrels and shapes I started to build on each other. Individual welded joints I and shapes so that they really followed; I drew a laminate with fiberglass. In this procedure; I had worked up to a height of about 5.5 m; this dimension it makes things a massive total and handling challenging subject that is challenging to stability. Thus I was forced to the bottom of the mount steel base. This supporting cross will be discussed so as to not disturb the thing both visually and conceptually. The whole object is then coated with fiberglass and glass fiber reinforcement for the entire body and to become more diverse and the resulting coarser structure.

Subjects/Keywords: Life history characteristics; diet; nursery habitat use and metabolic rates of brown stingrays; Dasyatis lata; were evaluated to determine their ecological impacts in Kāne'ohe Bay; Oahu; through a bioenergetics model. The maximum age based on analysis of vertebral samples (28 years) was among the oldest for any dasyatid aged to date. Edge and marginal increment analyses; as well as recapture of two stingrays previously marked with oxytetracycline; verified deposition of a single growth band per year. Growth characteristics varied between sexes; with females attaining larger sizes and exhibiting lower growth coefficients. Brown stingray life history characteristics are similar to other elasmobranchs in that they are long lived; grow slowly and mature at a late age. Stomach content; bulk and amino acid stable isotope analyses were used to assess the diet and habitat use of juvenile brown stingrays in Kāne'ohe Bay. A shift in stingray diet and an increase in relative trophic position were apparent with increasing size. Results indicate stingrays foraged within their Kāne'ohe Bay nursery for the majority of their juvenile lives before shifting to offshore habitats with the onset of sexual maturity. Underestimates of trophic position from amino acid analyses suggest that urea retention in elasmobranchs may have important implications for estimates of absolute trophic position determined using this method. Potential prey resources were portioned between stingrays and sympatric juvenile scalloped hammerhead sharks; Sphyrna lewini. Standard metabolic rates were estimated for juvenile brown stingrays through respirometry. Temperature and mass had significant effects on metabolic rates. The energy budget of juvenile stingrays was heavily weighted towards metabolism; which accounted for 68% of total consumed energy. A large metabolic demand coupled with very slow growth indicated potential limitation of food resources. Daily rations estimated from the bioenergetics model declined from a high of 2.72 %BW/d to 1.23 %BW/d with age. Results suggest the potential for strong top-down effects on prey populations due to stingray predation. Use of Kāne'ohe Bay as a nursery habitat for brown stingrays appears to be a trade-off between increased juvenile survival and a late age at first maturity due to slow growth rates.

Subjects/Keywords: Prehypertension; ambulatory blood pressure; Blood pressure; oscillometric blood pressureHypertension is a global disease that many effected people in developing countries is not aware of. Hypertension is linked with cardiovascular disease. Prehypertension is not a disease but if not correctly treated; it could develop into hypertension. The aim of the study was to investigate if there are any differences in circadian blood pressure between two study groups; one group with normal blood pressure and one group with prehypertension. This study was a explorative study and its design is based on measurements of blood pressure values and a questionnaire was used to help get the data collection. 51 students volunteered to have their blood pressure taken from them and out of these 51; 24 where selected into two groups of 12 each for the Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. hese 24 students would be a part of our study and an ambulatory (Schiller-102 plus) blood pressure monitor was used to collect the data. The prevalence of prehypertension findings in the clinical testing phase was 37% of the population.

19. Tay, Noel Nuo Wi. Human-centric Semantic Reasoning and Optimization for Smart Home : スマートホームのための人間中心セマンティック推論と最適化.

Degree: 博士(工学), 2017, Tokyo Metropolitan University / 首都大学東京

首都大学東京, 2017-03-25, 博士(工学)

Subjects/Keywords: Smart home consists of various kinds of Internet of Tings (IoT) devices connected to the private house that cooperatively provide inhabitants (users) with proactive services related to comfort; security and safety. Examples of services include 1) manipulation of lighting and temperature based on time and context; 2) reminder service of user’s schedules by using the nearest output device; and 3) device organization to realize surveillance system. However; current smart homes are developed mostly from the viewpoint of technical capabilities; where users have to decide how the connected devices are going to serve them. They may have to setup the devices based on the available functionalities and specifications of the devices; and also have to alter their living styles according to the role of each device. Besides; most devices can only provide simple services independently. Œus; cooperation among the devices is important. On the other hand; human-centric approach; which centered on humans’ need to enhance their living experience; is an important technological paradigm where services are provided anywhere and anytime based on situation. Smart home abiding this approach should cooperatively maximize fulfillment of quality of life (QOL) for individual users subject to personal constraints. In this respect; the devices are bound to enable communication of information; and their operations are coordinated to deliver services cooperatively via a sequence of device actions called a plan. Due to personalization and automation; a number of problems have to be solved. First; a means of automatic binding between loosely coupled devices depending on services delivered have to be devised; as manual setup is impractical. Secondly; coordination of devices needs to generate complex plans; without requiring manual specification of sub-plans. Besides; issue of over-constrained goals during service provisions that arises from flawed or contradicting specification from multiple users should be considered. Apart from that; low training data in general environment setting for individual identification should be addressed. The aim of this research is to establish an integrated system for the human-centric smart home (HcSH) that provides personalized service through loosely coupled devices automatically. This research modularizes the overall system into three modules; which are human identification (HIM); automated planner (APM); and semantic reasoner (SRM). HIM helps select the appropriate QOL; SRM binds the devices by associating them with planning components; which are then used by APM to generate plans for device coordination to maximize QOL fulfillment. Chapter 1 gives the introduction and design motivation. Chapter 2 presents the related works and literature reviews; as well as justifications relevant to this thesis. Chapter 3 deals with HIM; which is realized via face identification. For face identification; problems faced are heavy computational load and insufficient learning data. The solution is to use transfer learning to handle data issue while being able to build generalized face model. For face model refinement; active learning is implemented. Experimental results show the method is competitive in terms of accuracy and computational cost compared to current state of the art. Chapter 4 presents APM; where planning via solving Constraint Satisfaction Problem (CSP) is laid out. CSP in planning is declarative without requiring prior specification of sub-plans; and can handle variables of larger domains. Due to the high possibility of having over-constrained QOL as in practical cases; CSP planner cannot fulfill all of them. An example is a contradicting TV channel request from 2 persons. Optimization through weighted CSP is therefore used to maximize QOL fulfillment. Experiments on weighted CSP shows that the method is capable of performing optimization while generating complex plans. Chapter 5 is on SRM; where knowledge representation is constructed by Web Ontology Language (OWL) description logic. It models knowledge on home and building layout and device functionalities. OWL is used because it is decidable and that it is endorsed by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). We deal with case studies based on further inference on building state as an important example to discuss the applicability of the proposed method; and demonstrate the use of building ontology. This is followed by automated device binding and the method to generate basic planning components of rules in automated planning. Finally; an extension to robot complex planning is provided to demonstrate how it can be easily extended. Chapter 6 demonstrates the applicability of the HcSH; which integrates all three modules through its implementation in a prototype smart home with 5 rooms; which houses 2 persons. Various tests are performed to show the generated plans are near optimal without redundancy. Œe system is also shown to be scalable given increasing amount of devices. Case studies show that the system can perform well even under short time threshold. Finally; chapter 7 summarizes the thesis. Future vision of the work is also laid out; which is to implement it as a community-centric system.

Theoretical analysis of the key constraints that occur in the transmission of mathematical modeling of dynamical systems into field of physics education in secondary schools is presented. In an effort to explore the extent to which current physics education promotes understanding of models and modeling; we analyze the curriculum and the three most commonly used textbooks for high school physics. We focus primarily on the representation of the various stages of modeling in the solved tasks in textbooks and on the presentation of certain simplifications and idealizations; which are in high school physics frequently used. We show that one of the textbooks in most cases fairly and reasonably presents the simplifications; while the other two half of the analyzed simplifications do not explain. It also turns out that the vast majority of solved tasks in all the textbooks do not explicitly represent model a; info:eu-repo/classification/udc/37.091.3:53:519.673(043.2)

Subjects/Keywords: Objective: The present study was designed to explore whether behavioral weight loss treatment is associated with changes in internalized weight bias among overweight and obese men and women. The relationship of internalized weight bias to treatment outcome was assessed; as well as its relationship to other psychological variables associated with weight change; including body image concern; self-esteem; anti-fat attitudes; depressive symptoms; anxiety and stress. Method: Participants were 106 overweight and obese men and women enrolled in a treatment outcome study using the Lifestyle Balance Program; a behavioral weight loss program emphasizing dietary change and increasing physical activity. Eligible participants were randomly assigned by treatment site to either a standard care condition following the Lifestyle Balance Program; or to a continuing care condition which included all elements of the Lifestyle Balance Program; plus 18 additional months of participant-led self-help. Participants completed measures of internalized weight bias; anti-fat attitudes; self-esteem; body image concern; depressive symptoms; anxiety and stress at the start of treatment; following completion of active treatment; and again at six-months post-treatment (i.e. follow-up). Results: Participants who completed treatment lost; on average; 5.22% of initial body weight at post-treatment with an additional loss of 0.50% of initial body weight from post-treatment to follow-up; with no significant differences between treatment conditions on measures of weight change and psychological functioning. Weight bias internalization was shown to significantly decrease over the course of treatment and again at follow-up and was associated with percent change in initial body weight from baseline to six-month follow-up. Participants reporting low levels of internalized weight bias at baseline lost twice as much weight when compared to participants reporting high levels of internalized weight bias at baseline. Though significant correlations were found between percent change in initial body weight and measures of internalized weight bias; body image concern and self-esteem; regression models failed to identify significant predictors of weight change among the study variables. Internalized weight bias was additionally shown to be related to body image concern; anti-fat attitudes; depression and self-esteem. Baseline scores of internalized weight bias contributed to the prediction of change in body image scores from baseline to follow-up and from post-treatment to follow-up. Discussion: Findings from the present study indicate a relationship between internalized weight bias and weight change in the context of behavioral weight loss treatment. Elements of behavioral weight loss treatment; such as cognitive restructuring; may contribute to the reduction of bias demonstrated in the present study. Study results also indicate the importance of assessing baseline levels of internalized weight bias; as having higher levels of internalized weight bias was associated with poorer weight loss outcomes. Limitations of the present study are discussed; including methodological issues such as the use of self-report questionnaires and the clinical significance of the findings. Future research may design interventions to specifically target internalized weight bias; through such methods as cognitive restructuring or cognitive defusion techniques; particularly among those individuals evidencing greater internalized weight bias.

Subjects/Keywords: Fusarium verticillioides causes an important seed disease on maize and produces fumonisin B1 (FB1); a mycotoxin that is detrimental to human and animal health. Previous studies discovered that expression of FST1 is required for FB1 production and wild-type level of virulence on maize seeds. FST1 encodes a putative protein with 12 transmembrane domains with sequence similarity to hexose transporters. However; those studies have failed to prove its ability to transport glucose; fructose or mannose. I identified another three phenotypes associated with the lack of a functional FST1; which includes reduced hydrophobicity of hyphae; reduced macroconidia production; and increased sensitivity to hydrogen peroxide. My research compared the transcriptome of the wild type and strain Δfst1 when grown on autoclaved maize kernels. The 17 % of transcriptome (2677 genes) were differentially expressed. Examination of these genes indicated that the disruption of FST1 function affected genes involved in secondary metabolism; cell structure; conidiogenesis; virulence; and resistance to reactive oxygen species. Additionally; I used a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain (Δitr1) lacking a functional inositol transporter gene (ITR1) to study the function of FST1. This yeast mutant grows poorly in myo-inositol medium and is not inhibited by FB1. I found that expression of FST1 in strain Δitr1 restored growth on myo-inositol medium and sensitivity to FB1 to levels observed in the wild-type yeast strain. The results indicate that FST1 can function as an inositol transporter and suggests it can transport FB1 into fungal cells. Finally; the functional importance of amino acids in FST1 was examined by creating targeted mutations in the central loop and C-terminus regions of the protein. Expression of these engineered FST1 genes in stain Δitr1 of S. cerevisiae and strain Δfst1 of F. verticillioides indicated that both the central loop and C-terminus are critical for FST1 functionality. Overall this research has established the first characterized inositol transporter in filamentous fungi and has advanced our knowledge about the global regulatory functions of FST1.; Plant Pathology

Subjects/Keywords: Packaging is an important element responsible for brand growth and one of the main rea-sons for producers to gain competitive advantages through technological innovation. In this re-gard, the aim of this work is to design a fully autonomous electronic system for a smart bottle packaging, being integrated in a European project named ROLL-OUT. The desired application for the smart bottle is to act as a fill-level sensor system in order to determine the liquid content level that exists inside an opaque bottle, so the consumer can exactly know the remaining quantity of the product inside. An in-house amorphous indium–gallium–zinc oxide thin-film transistor (a-IGZO TFT) model, previously developed, was used for circuit designing purposes. This model was based in an artificial neural network (ANN) equivalent circuit approach. Taking into account that only n-type oxide TFTs were used, plenty of electronic building-blocks have been designed: clock generator, non-overlapping phase generator, a capacitance-to-voltage converter and a comparator. As it was demonstrated by electrical simulations, it has been achieved good functionality for each block, having a final system with a power dissipation of 2.3 mW (VDD=10 V) not considering the clock generator. Four printed circuit boards (PCBs) have been also designed in order to help in the testing phase. Mask layouts were already designed and are currently in fabrication, foreseeing a suc-cessful circuit fabrication, and a major step towards the design and integration of complex trans-ducer systems using oxide TFTs technology; Capacitance-to-voltage converter; Comparator; Oxide TFTs circuit integration; Domínio/Área Científica::Engenharia e Tecnologia::Engenharia dos Materiais

Subjects/Keywords: This doctoral thesis has been focused on the challenge to obtain, using Additive Manufacturing (AM), models for surgical planning, under the premise that the equipment to obtain them should be accessible to the hospital field. The objective is to spread the use of prototypes as a surgical training tool, upgrading medical practice in the same way that technologies which enhanced radiographs at the time. The reason for using AM, instead of more traditional technologies, is its capacity to materialise, in a straight way, the digital data of the patient anatomy coming from three-dimensional scanning systems, making it possible to achieve personalised models. The results are basically the generation of new knowledge in order to create accessible multi-material 3D printing machines that would allow to obtain models mimicking living tissues. Related to the will to spread this technology, research has focused on open source technologies, mainly Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), and similar technologies based on catalitzable liquids. This research is aligned with the development work related to AM at CIM UPC, and in this special field there is a close cooperation with Hospital Sant Joan de Déu in Barcelona (HSJD). The first section of the thesis includes a description of the state of the art, including the existing technologies and their application within the medical field. For the first time, basis have been laid for the characterisation of living tissues – primarily soft tissues – to support the selection of materials mimicking them in an AM process, so as to improve the surgical planning experience. The stiffness linked to most of the materials commonly used in 3D printing, makes them unhelpful to simulate tumours and other anatomic references. Then, parameters like density, viscoelasticity, soft materials industry characterisation, soft tissues and vessels elastic modulus, its hardness, mimicking blood and sterilisation requirements, are successively treated. The second section starts exploring FFF 3D printing. Processes are classified from the point of view of multi-materiality, a key factor for surgical planning models, telling multi-nozzle solutions from mixing printheads solutions. A study about probable useful materials (both filaments and liquids) to mimic soft tissues is included. It is stated how liquids, compared to filaments, are more demanding related to additive manufacturing processes, and different ways to print very soft materials are detailed. Finally, six real cases – in which the doctorate has participated in these last years –, involving collaboration with HSJD, are reported. In the origin it can be found the difficulty to perform tumour resection surgeries to children, like neuroblastoma type, and the initiative of Dr. Lucas Krauel. Finally, Section 3 is devoted to the exploration of many concepts (up to 8), activity performed along the last five years thanks to the technical resources of CIM UPC and the academic activity of the UPC students, related to their final degree thesis, therefore reaching the construction of several machines and mechanisms to test them. The wide and systematic research about these concepts makes closer the day to reach a desktop 3D printing multimaterial solution. It is found that the best way to progress is having a plurality of independent printheads in order to enable a 3D printer to integrate some of the researched concepts, thus materialising a possible solution. To sum up, it is raised how a 3D printer for surgical training models should be like, for the purpose of serving as a basis for new developments.; Àrees temàtiques de la UPC::Enginyeria mecànica; 617; 620; 68

The influence exerted by peers can be positive or negative. This research aims to analyses the perception that young people have about the appropriate/inappropriate behaviors and relationships among peers. Sixteen male students of the 9thyear made part of this study, indentified with bad/good behavior. The data collection was made through questionnaires consisted of open questions. The data was evaluated qualitatively and quantitatively. The good and bad behaviors are conceptualized by individual and relational attitudes. The teachers’ perception of the behavior is different from the perception that the young people has of themselves. The majority of the students do not consider themselves as an influence to the peers, and not even the peers as an influence to them. The promotion of peer relationship is seen as through the realization of specific activities. The student group which was identified with bad behavior presents a lower conceptual variety.; Appropriate and inappropriate behaviors; Peers relations; School; Students; Social and personal competence

27. Achuo, George. Partner satisfaction and renewal likelihood in consumer supported agriculture (CSA) : a case study of The Equiterre CSA network.

Degree: MS, Department of Agricultural Economics, 2003, McGill University

Subjects/Keywords: Organic farming  – Québec (Province).; Consumer supported agriculture (CSA) is a mutually beneficial food system that is based on forward contracts between a farmer and consumers. CSA emphasizes organic production methods, and local production for local consumption. A review of the literature on CSA indicates that it is thriving as an alternative to the conventional food system. Yet, the sustainable growth of the CSA food system is threatened by high partner turnover. A case study of the Equiterre CSA network was done to identify causes of high partner turnover. 378 useable surveys, out of 500 sent out, were used to identify factors that influence satisfaction and the likelihood to renew the partnership. An ordered probit model was estimated for each dependent variable. Nine factors each were found to significantly influence satisfaction and the likelihood to renew partnership. Satisfaction with product quantity, quality and price, and partner perception of their ability to influence basket contents were statistically significant in the both models. Satisfaction with the location of delivery points was significant in the renewal model. In terms of socio-demographic variables, income and the number of children under 12 years in a household both had negative effects on satisfaction while age had a positive effect on renewal. A high correlation (r=0.7) between global satisfaction and renewal suggests that CSAs can reduce the turnover rate by delivering in areas that influence global satisfaction with the system. The results suggest that the single most important area in this regard is that of choice and variety of produce. A more flexible system of constituting baskets and a more diversified selection of produce may be useful areas of focus on the farmers' part.; Consumer satisfaction  – Québec (Province).; Sustainable agriculture  – Québec (Province).

Subjects/Keywords: Cancer is a complex disease where cells proliferate uncontrollably and spread into different parts of the body. Unlimited division of cancer cells occurs due to activation of proteins that promote cell growth, i.e. oncoproteins, and simultaneous inactivation of proteins that regulate cell death, i.e. tumorsuppressors. Although the number of ascertained cancer-associated proteins continues to grow rapidly, the transformation of a normal cell into a tumor cell depends on changes in several key signaling pathways that regulate cell proliferation and death. Identification of tumor-associated proteins and studying their function might be applied to the elaboration of novel therapeutic strategies. In this work the functions of a potential oncoprotein leukosialin (CD43) were studied in human cancer cells. CD43 has long been regarded as a molecule present exclusively on the surface of blood cells. However, there is a growing body of evidence suggesting that CD43 might play a role in tumor development. Several studies demonstrate high level of CD43 in human solid tumor cells, including colorectal tumors, but it was not detectable in normal colon cells. Moreover, CD43 has been shown to interact with proteins that influence cell survival or proliferation. The results of the present research imply that CD43 in cooperation with the well known oncoprotein β-catenin facilitates cell growth and survival. It is believed that disorders in the functioning of β-catenin frequently lead to the formation of various types of cancer, especially colorectal cancers, since deregulated β-catenin triggers production of proteins that stimulate cell division. In cells with impaired tumorsuppressors, the increased amount of CD43, via β-catenin signaling, might cause uncontrollable proliferation of cells and initiate a tumor. However, excessive growth signals emanating from CD43 and β-catenin actuate the process of cell death, which is the main protective mechanism against tumors. Furthermore, the tumorsuppressors, in turn, decrease the level of CD43 protein. In summary, this work presents new aspects on the ability of CD43 to enhance cell growth and thereby promote tumor formation. Also, a previously undescribed negative feedback loop is proposed between CD43 and tumorsuppressors that might be important in preventing the disease.; tumor cells growth; tumor markers; molecular aspects; proteins; kasvajarakkude kasv; valgud; kasvaja markerid; molekulaaraspektid

Subjects/Keywords: Neoliberalism as the current version of capitalism has produced a number of problems, the worsening capitalist tendency to universal commodification where everything is commodified, including education, health, culture and sports. Availing this system the individual interest where social and economic rights are minimized. The basic principles of neoliberalism are: Minimum state participation in the economy of a country, very little government intervention in the labor market, privatization of state, free movement of international capital, emphasis on globalization, opening the economy to the entry of multinationals, adoption measures against economic protectionism and bureaucracy of the state. Whereas education is more than a form of capital investment, neoliberal conception of education that became another of capitalist economic policy model strengthening element implemented in and by countries in socio economic development. In the neoliberal discourse education passes to enter the capitalist market soon working their similarity, leaving just to be part of the social and political sphere, the political content of citizenship has been replaced by consumer rights. Hence the neoliberal view that parents and students are consumers. In general, we see that in recent years through official documents show the presence of neoliberal strategies being implemented in Brazil. Similarly education has been focused on the interests of capital owners. So with this research I analyze the influence that this new capitalist strand has caused the Brazilian basic education.; Dominação; Educação; Impacto; Globalização; Neoliberalism; Domination; Education; Impact; Globalization
