Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian, Gomathi Balasubramanian
Comments: 6 Pages.

In light of the information explosion and prominence of search engines in current scenario, the present article investigates and reports on the search trends of five brain disorders, namely meningitis, schizophrenia, epilepsy, autism and coma, using the Google Trends tool. Setting the time duration between the mid-2000’s and the present (July, 2016), the analyses of trends are performed both chronologically and location-wise on global and Indian geographies. Overall, it is interesting to see certain regional patterns in global and Indian trends and forms the impetus for studying correlations and impacts of a lot of factors such as workaholism, HDI, percentage of white and Caucasian races and climatic conditions in Europe and America. Also, as seen from the Indian trends, south Indian states and cities dominate trends of all the analyzed brain disorders, and it is imperative to investigate into the correlations of such disorders with tropical and coastal climates as well as socio-economic and academic performances.

Kings’ Dirty Operation: Concise Memos of My Cooperation with the CIA and Illuminati's Hell

Authors: Peiman Ghasemi, Barack Obama
Comments: 134 Pages.

It’s a concise part of my cooperation with the White House and the Central Intelligence Agency and Human Rights Watch. I have been all around the Globe. I have stayed in Russia; places so cold that your very bones inside of you shriek. Deep down inside the underground city, where you ask yourself “How is it possible for satellites with their warheads to track me here?” I remember that it was many months ago when I informed the US President, I would like to write a book. It's a great pleasure that I received a note by Bill Gates and I included the note here in this work. What follows is a concise part of some private communications and what we did behind the closed doors to change the course of the world! Kings’ Dirty Operation is introduced with a foreword by President Barack Obama.

A Comment on "Family Ruptures, Stress, and the Mental Health of the Next Generation"

Authors: Nicolas Bearbaki
Comments: 5 Pages.

Persson and Rossin-Slater (2016b) claim to be the first to credibly estimate causal effects of fetal stress exposure on mental health in later life. They emphasize that their analysis is the first to control for non-random exposure to a relative’s death and non-random gestation length. In light of discoveries regarding prior literature, we find these claims to be exaggerated and misleading.

On Inventing a New Manager

Authors: S.P.Srivastava
Comments: 8 Pages.

Management theory has not kept pace with developments of concepts in other fields especially in science. As a result, managers have gone out of tune with modern paradigm. Gerald Holton, a noted philosopher has observed that “…science has always generated an important part of our symbolic vocabulary and provided some of the metaphysical bases and philosophical orientations of our ideology”, in this light, development of management theories has been analyzed in this article in the context of evolving scientific thoughts especially quantum mechanics. It has been argued that there is a need for a new management concept which does not follow traditional style in the classical sense of “control and supervision” but adopts a new style which is in tune with quantum mechanical concept and follow “cooperate and contribute” philosophy.

India: a ‘Wiki’ Tale of Twenty Nine States

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian
Comments: 12 Pages.

After understanding the subtle difference between comprehensive and complete coverage of an entity in an encyclopedia, the present article poses the question: For an encyclopedia service such as Wikipedia, what does it take to ‘comprehensively’ describe a particular state of India, covering in reasonable detail all its diversity? In line with this thought, a simple exercise, consisting for searching for the number of occurrences of each district name in the article about its home state, was carried out. This is done for all state mentions in the article about India, as well as each district of the 29 states in the respective articles, sorted out in seven zones: Himalayas, North, Centre, West, South, East and Sisters. The article in particular focuses on significance of the capital in each state, quantified as the Rajdhani Effect, as well as districts not being mentioned anywhere in the article, quantified as the Zero Effect. With these points in consideration, the article explores the Wikipedia articles of each of the 29 states in India, searching for and studying the number of times each district features therein. The result is a different perspective on the states and on the entire country of India, understanding and highlighting the districts that have made a mark significant enough to feature in the ‘comprehensive’ Wiki tale of twenty nine states.

The day, every member of every family starts thinking about his/her ethical responsibilities towards all the rest of the members of his/her family, his/her neighbors, citizens of his/her city and country etc., unrest, intolerance, corruption and militancy etc. all shall start decreasing in place of growing.

The Smart House

Authors: Mahmoud Mohsen Ali Alsayes
Comments: 1 Page.

As known, Egypt faces many grand challenges such as saving energy, Water and air Pollution, poverty and housing problem. In our capstone's project, we have tried to find a solution for over-population by exploiting Egypt's vast areas of deserts to build integrated houses that are refurbishing for air, eco-friendly, self-cleaning and cheap. The project's design requirements are to make the temperature suitable for residents in deserts and make the house resistant to the natural disasters. We made a prototype for our original design by using foam instead of rammed earth. We prove that the design has met our design requirements through the test plan. And the results were fantastic and unexpected. We have chosen North Plateau in The western desert to apply the Project where underground water and fertile soil found. We use wastes as a key to generate biogas and electricity. In addition, we use a hydrogen fuel cell technology as a second source. We are supposed to use rammed earth and palm fronds materials in building as they are found in that area

Migrations et Environnement: étiologie Des Débats et Participations Sociologiques

Authors: KAMANA Pouwisawè, Roger Tamasse DANIOUẺ, Kouami KOKOU
Comments: 34 Pages.

In recent years, the entrance on the scene of sociopolitical climate issues has opened the debate on a new type of migrants including that of environmental migrants. Today, even if the relationship between the environment and migration make gradually its way in international circles, it remains largely unknown to the general public and arouses a little of scientific researchers. If scientists know the phenomenon since the 1970s, it is only in recent years that it has truly become a social issue, political, environmental and a subject of public debate. The objective of this article is to make a place of state of knowledge of the phenomenon through an etiology of debates of different actors. The results reveal that there are a multitude of terms and definitions customary in the different actors who addressed the topic. Different work on environmental migration is subject suffering from a terminological point of view. The classificatory issue addressed by the authors, is multiple and sometimes complementary. Faced with the growing status of the phenomenon and its victims throughout the world in varying degrees, it is urgent to put an end to unnecessary and unfruitful definitional misunderstanding because an action is worth a thousand intentions.

The External Migration and Its Effects in Romania

Authors: Alexandra DEACONU
Comments: 09 Pages.

Migration or territorial mobility of the population is not limited to travel in space, but is a more complex process that brings into the equation multiple items and irrespective of the mechanisms that set in motion or influencing their manifestation, generates a broad spectrum of effects. The changes are visible in the economic life political, social, cultural, religious. They manifest both in the place of origin, from where potential migrants will go, and in the destination.

Las Devociones Sincréticas en América Del Sur: la Fiesta de San Benito en Venezuela Como Expresión de Contrapoder

Authors: Vanessa A. Casanova
Comments: 42 Pages.

The oil city of Cabimas, in western Venezuela, is the heterogeneous and complex space where various groups worship San Benito de Palermo, one of the most widespread, plural and multiethnic Catholic expressions of the region. The devotion to this deity, as a mestizo expression of local identities, gets away from the conceptions and rites of the Church, for whom the relationship with the saint should be limited to the spaces and times that it has defined, particularly during the cycle of fiesta. Cabimas is a place of concurrence and tension between believers and institutions, which are united by a common element: the saint, but which sometimes also get into conflict. How can this worship lead to this ambivalence? How can it represent, at the same time, an expression of power and counterpower? In this work we propose to discuss the relationship between the sacred, collective identities and power in the cult of Saint Benedict, with the help of the ethnographic method and the interpretative analysis of significances of the anthropology of religion. In their relationship with the saint, people, the Church, leaders and public forces altogether overwhelm the system of doctrines and rituals, to participate in a phenomenon that no longer seems "religious" nor "political" or "family", but becomes instead –using Maussian terms– a total social fact.

Forming Identity via Conflict

Authors: Jeffrey Joseph Wolynski
Comments: 4 Pages. 3 references

To form identity requires that people experience conflict so that their boundaries and ideas can be significantly clarified. The beginnings of forming identity via conflict are with the mother/father to child roles during the child’s upbringing. Adolescence marks the beginning for forming identity. As the child grows into their new identity, they begin to form their own interests based on this identity. So it begins with conflict styles, then forms identity, then forms interests and desires on this newly created identity. This has enormous impact on what specific professions a person will undertake as well, as their identities must match their profession so they can streamline who they are with what their goals will be. As well, many conflicts in the professional world are not as reliant on interests and scarce resources as they are perceived to be, but are based almost entirely on individuals’ and groups’ collective identities.

Systems of Environmental Management

Authors: Elena Antoanela Cotoc, Aurelia Trăistaru, Adriana Stoica
Comments: 10 Pages.

The advantages of adopting a system of environmental management imply that through its implementation a perfect monitoring of the environmental legislation can be achieved, having a higher juridical certainty and supplying proofs of following the laws and regulations in force. The most important advantages of an environmental system are: an appropriate care for the clients, responsibility and diligence in managing environmental issues; saving raw materials and energy; the effect of the environmental certification which does not necessarily lead to a growth in sales but which contributes anyway to the improvement of the image. Therefore the aim of the EMAS rule is promoting the continuous improvement of the environmental performances through: · development and implementation of the environmental management system, · evaluation of the environmental performances through audit, · giving to the customers the information related to the environmental performances.

Sociological Explanation of Fear of Crime in Public Spaces Case Study Mashhad

Authors: Mahdie Rezvani
Comments: 30 Pages.

Fear of crime in public places is a social issue that reduces access to the public places and limits the interactions with these places. Fear has significantly affected the city appearance, civil design and spatial distribution of the residences. The conception of security in urban spaces is on one hand related to the crime and on the other hand to the concept of facing the crime (victimization) and fear of crime encountering. The research method is surveying and the information collection technique is through questionnaire. Probable span sampling (PPS) method is used. Sample population was 200 household which were selected randomly in five categorical clusters from Mashhad city. In addition to investigating structural factors, the purpose of the research is studying reactive components affecting fear of crime among people in public places inside and outside the neighborhood. Independent variable of the research includes two general classes of reactive and structural factors and the interaction between them which reactive factors consist of: Vulnerability, victimization, gender ratio of the place, age ratio of the place, mental image of the place, activity in the place, cumulative effectiveness, and residency duration in the place and perceiving the risk of the crime. Structural factors include: visual penetration of the place, variation of place usage, non-defensed areas and place rank. The interaction between subjective and structural factors is considered as independent variable which includes: disorder and effectiveness, gender ratio and vulnerability, age ratio and vulnerability, place rank and vulnerability. Place rank among all other structural factors has the greatest effect on the fear of crime in public places outside the neighborhood. It means that by increasing place's rank of people residential area their fear of crime is decreased. The presence of non-defended areas (as one of the structural characteristics of the place), the sense of the place (one of the mental images of the people from the place) and activity and participation of the individuals in the place are three basic factors forming the concept of a place which have significant effect on the fear of crime within the neighborhoods. The effect of social capital (trust and support) as another effective structural factor on fear of crime in public area within the neighborhoods is approved. Victimization experience is also recognized as a predictor of fear of crime in multi variable analysis of public places inside and outside the neighborhood. Spatial factor's effects on fear of crime in public places inside and outside the neighborhoods show that structural and spatial characteristics of the residence area also affect fear of crime significantly. There is a relation between fear of crime and spatial view and fear of crime is also affected by spatial configuration. Variable of spatial legibility has reductive effect on fear of crime in public places within the neighborhood. Visual accessibility and public place lighting for the people also reduce fear of crime among the people within the neighborhoods. The relation between the movement and the presence of people in the place with the fear of crime outside the neighborhoods is approved. Among social factors, economic-social position of the people has reverse relation with fear of crime. Among reactive factors, the more is the understanding of the people from the crime occurrence in their neighborhoods, the more is the fear of crime in public places outside the neighborhood. Variables of victimization, local legibility, social capital of the neighborhood, informal social control and gender ratio of the place among other reactive factors and variables of usage variation of the place, visual penetration of the place among other structural factors in the model of fear of crime in public places within the neighborhood have significant relation with fear of cri, in public places within the neighborhoods. Also the interaction between variables of vulnerability and gender ration of the place, of disorder and informal social control and of disorder and social capital of the neighborhood has no effect on fear of crime in public places within the neighborhoods. Finally, those variables of structural and reactive classes which are effective and significant are supported to reduce fear of crime.

Explanation Why “when One Takes Money he Becomes a Slave” Using Automata Theory and Van Der Pol Equation

Authors: Nikolaj Roerich
Comments: 5 Pages.

Using automata theory and Van Der Pol equation theory we explain why “when one takes money he becomes a slave” (this formula is universal and there is no one who can escape this law): when one takes money he inevitably makes more complexity into his life, by this his way of thinking becomes a cycle (he does not see the reality anymore), and therefore he has no really new ideas never, he falls into complete illusion that he achieves something. This article describes the meaning of the following Buddha’s story: Prince Gautama who had become Buddha saw one of his followers meditating under a tree at the edge of the Ganges river. pon inquiring why he was meditating, his follower stated he was attempting to become so enlightened he could cross the river unaided. Buddha gave him a few pennies and said: "Why don't you seek passage with that boatman. It is much easier." As one can see the modern civilization result is actually “three pennies” because this civilization is in the cycle for several thousands years.

Superpowers, Soft Power and Smart Analytics

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian
Comments: 14 Pages.

As a testimony to this growth of the ‘soft power’ culture fueled by progress in information technology, the present work presented Google Search Trend Results of three countries – Russia, China and India, all three member of the BRICS and often visualized as the past, present and future superpowers respectively. The time period of 2012-2016 was chosen for the analysis, and search trend data from 13 other countries (USA, UK, Brazil, France, Germany, Japan, Indonesia, Australia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mexico, Vietnam and Turkey) are chosen, owing to various factors such as internet penetration, representative of American, Latin American, European, Australian, West, South, East and Southeast Asian perceptions, and population among the world’s top 20. On comparing Russia, India and China among global search trends between 2004 and 2016, it is seen that India clearly leads the other two nations by a significant amount, possessing a steadily increasing trend over the years. Overall, it is clearly evident that India leads by example in establishing the “Soft Power” Culture on the global platform. Apart from its own population of 1.2 billion, clearly a lot of expectant eyes and hearts are set to welcome India as the next Superpower, in the dawn of an era characterized by culture, soft power, fueled by rapid advancement and progress of information technology, with reduced violence and muddled borders, and advancing human civilization to the next level. Jai Hind!

Four Theories with Potential for Success Within the Relation Practice with the Touristic Products Consumer

Authors: Aurelia Dumitru, Marioara Avram, Marian Siminică
Comments: 11 Pages.

This study explores the main theories with incidence in describing, explaining and predicting behavior of touristic services consumer’s. The research method is of meta-analysis type. Our study assumes that consumers’ perceptions and beliefs play an important role in the decision to become a beneficiary of a tourist service offered by a travel company or by a touristic services intermediary. The literature retains several models that explain the relationship between consumers’ behavior and information promotion of touristic product. There are four theories underlying the action of implementing these models subsequent to the idea of consumer’s behavior: Selective Attention Theory, Congruity Principle Balance Theory, Cognitive Dissonance Theory. After exploring the potential of these theories in order to generate a competitive advantage for tourism service providers it is concluded that the convergent use of these four theories of planning, organizing, implementing, managing and controlling the marketing touristic activities is the method with the most significant impact on the behavior of travel services consumer.

About the Name of Actually Communication Studying Discipline

Authors: Ștefan Vlăduțescu
Comments: 7 Pages.

This study explores the literature on the name of discipline which seeks communication. It notes that there are various names designating this subject: Communication Theory, Communication Science, Sciences de l'Information et of Communication (SIC), Communicology, Communication studies. It appears, then, that the discipline dealing with the phenomena of communication is (along with Psychology, Anthropology and Sociology) a social science. There is that, although seem to refer to one and the same phenomenon of communication, referred disciplines not examine the communication as a whole, but focuses on different areas; ie they are fragmented. Starting from the origin and connection (Lat. "Communis" + the Gr. Word "logos" "speech, thought, study") and making use of the analogy of Sociology (Latin word "Socius" + Gr. "Logos" ) and Anthropology (Gr. "anthropos" + "logos") is seeking a convergence of names. It is estimated that it should reach convergence in respect of at least two criteria: the study of communication as a whole and understanding communication as a multi-structured universe. Such criteria somehow it would comply with a title like "Strong Communication Science Communicology". Yet the question persists and therefore the future must be sought arguments to name a possible unitary communication science.

The Liminality as Means of Mass Media for Transform of a Daily Event in Ritual

Authors: Bianca Teodorescu, Oprea Valentin Bușu
Comments: 8 Pages.

The aim of this study is to underline the effective used of liminality by mass media for transform in ritual a daily event. Theoretical backgound is constituted by concept of liminality which was launched by Arnold Van Gennep and was developed by Victor Turner (who has named the concept of the liminality – liminoid). In this framework, the study proves that in contemporary society, mass media are commited as responsible for mediatization of rituals in distinctive ceremonials: social, political, religious, and other. When people are watching television, they are introduced, by the media, in a liminal space, where they get to be members in the act of rites of passage. From the moment when their attention is enthralled by what is on television, people are induced in an ambiguous state; they are separated from reality. The media creates for each important ritualised ceremonial, the necessary time, in order to create a subjection of the public. In the contemporary society our basic activities are, in fact, rituals.

Karma, the Past and the History

Authors: Janis Belov
Comments: 3 Pages.

Using mathematical methods we show that two solutions of Maxwell's equations correspond to two time directions. One comes as an echo from a Divine word that marks all the thoughts and deads as bad or good by this forming Karma that also Richard Feynman was speaking about. Everything in the Universe is built as a Wave - some solution of corresponding equations such as Schrodinger equations with some Hamiltonian (see eg. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schr%C3%B6dinger_equation#/media/File:StationaryStatesAnimation.gif). So, the Universe is actually some Hilbert space of such waves, in other words information, or Turing Machine that created and creates that space and all its elements (people, animals, plants and so on). The surrounding world is only a mirror - "Big TV" - that shows everything and teaches people. Due to people decided not to look into the mirror there is a gap or duality in the human conscience called Karma. The same as well-known duality in Quantum Physics. The article shows that there is no duality and that there is always the Watcher who sees All.

This study reveals Aristotle's modeling contribution to the establishment of a recognizable figure of argumentation and demonstration. These two ways of imposing an idea configure similarly: from the premises, relying on principles and with the help of some rules of inference arguments are presented which induce, inevitably or within the truth limits, a conclusion. Aristotle introduces the concept of topos, and a canon of argumentation and a canon demonstration are delineated. For stated figures of argumentation and demonstration, the Aristotelian canons constitute the first opening look.

Comments: 8 Pages.

The present work presents an insight into how complexity, chaos and nonlinear dynamics play a crucial role in determining the co-evolution of the society-and-law system. The paradigm shift obtained from a reductionist dominant to a holistic dynamical systems approach entails reversing a “reductionist funnel” to ensure better balance and coordination among the freedom, rights and regulations attractors, driving socio-legal principles in the context of human free will. Also, the significance of freedom-right-regulation balance in socio-legal design in the context of various Indian philosophy schools are understood.

Proof that Work Cost is Illusion

Comments: 2 Pages.

How much does the work of a sanitary worker cost? In new European union countries it costs 100 eur for two days work to reinstall the water pipes in bath and kitchen, and in old European country to suck sewage from the ground sewer costs 300 eur for 10 min, and sanitary hourly work is about 70 eur. One can ask why is so huge difference? The materials are the same, the technology is the same. What makes that difference? Is the cost of work just an illusion as Karl Marx wrote in Capital that capitalists manipulate so well. In this article, we show that there is a Law that proves that Work Cost is Illusion. The work cost is proprotional to the number of rules of the underlied economical system.

Cultural Advantage as a Postcolonial Resistance

Authors: Victor Christianto
Comments: 5 Pages. This is draft version, noit submitted yet to any journal

In accordance with Edward Said’s Culture and Imperialism, it has become more obvious that culture is a vehicle of imperialism all over the world through globalization. Or, in the context of postcolonial studies, there are dominance and resistance movement around everything in this world’s history. Similarly, there are cultural dominance and cultural resistance. In this paper, I argue that the term of Cultural Advantage which I and Prof. Florentin Smarandache coined back in 2008, can be a postcolonial resistance, i.e. a method which can be used by developing and under-developing countries (especially in Asia) to resist the globalization of culture brought by the First World Countries. In this paper, I first discuss why Postcolonialism matters.

Functions and Forms of Managerial Communication

Authors: Ștefan Vlăduțescu, Ilie Budică, Aurelia Dumitru, Georgiana Camelia Stănescu
Comments: 11 Pages.

This study is circumscribed to the domain of organizational communication and it is located within the specific field of managerial communication. It aims to clarify the purpose, functions and forms of managerial communication. The central approach is one of clarification and classification; in this respect, the approach is one of ontology of managerial communication (ontology includes vocabulary, terminology, classifications and typologies of a knowledge field). The research method that is used is complex and consists of a mix of meta-analytic procedures, procedures for collation, corroboration and synthesis procedures. Specialty literature is subject to a radiographic view in order to delineate ideas, opinions and theses related to the topic. Finally, our contribution consists of a) revealing, that managerial communication fulfills seven functions (information, decision transmission, influence, instruction, image, motivation, promotion) and c) in emphasizing that managerial communication is presented under seven forms (internal, external, vertical, horizontal, diagonal, linear, bipolar, and network communication).

Liminality and Neutrosophy

Authors: Bianca Teodorescu
Comments: 3 Pages.

This study is an application of Neutrosophy in the sphere of liminality. First, the aim of this study is to underline the importance of the concept of Neutrosophy that was intro-duced by the professor Florentin Smarandache correlated with the concept of the liminality. According to Arnold Van Gennep and Victor Turner, in the liminality, the rituals are conducted to put the people in an ambiguous state where everything there is not true or neither false and meaning that the threshold state is neutral. Rituals, myths or rites are representing indeed a form of communication, but on an unclear level, determined by the uncertainty. Liminality has a part which is working under the uncer-tainty’s rules of Neutrosophy: when a person is participat-ing in the rituals, he is searching a truth and risk a false. This means that the threshold state is improving the per-ception of the people from the moment when starts a ritu-al. But the threshold state can be generated also by the media. Rituals of the mass media are created in order to change the society’s perception, persuading the idea of what is true and false.

Paraphysical Jurisprudent Massacre Mediation

Authors: Richard L. Amoroso
Comments: 16 Pages.

It is possible and thereby feasible to develop and implement a pragmatic methodology for a preemptive evidentiary system of ‘Paraphysical Jurisprudence’ for mediating the occurrence of massacres. A required comprehensive completion and formalizing of the tools of epistemology (theory of knowledge) already exists and has been tested both ecumenically and scientifically. The evolution of epistemology has followed the historical progression from myth and superstition to logic and reason to empiricism and now finally to the utility of ‘transcendence’ as a tool in knowledge acquisition. An inspiring example from popular culture is illustrated in the 2002 Hollywood film noir “Minority Report” designed by its director to present a ‘plausible future world’ for the year 2054 wherein an elaborate ‘Precrime Unit’ is tested to prevent murder by utilizing a trio of ‘precogs’ bathed in a ‘photonic milk’ able to presciently predetermine impending occurrences of homicide for which the Precrime Police Unit then intervenes to prevent. Disdain for a putative so-called scientific metaphysics by natural philosophers is deeply rooted in modern pragmatic societies; perhaps rightly so as consistency, credibility and lack of a comprehensive theory has been heretofore emphatically lacking. In addition to the major problem of repeatability is the perceived distinction between domains of the physical and so-called ‘spiritual’ as mutually exclusive. In this work a strong case is made for the rigorous viability and near term putative implementation of a system of paraphysical jurisprudence drawing on the utility of a panoply of concepts. The remaining question is when does feasible become practical in the face of a steady increase in the heinous massacre of innocents?

Japan has a worldwide reputation as high technology nation. This is especially true for sustainable energy technology. Sustainable and renewable energy is carbon-neutral, climate protecting, the actual fuel is either cost-free (essentially forms of solar energy and geothermal energy) or substantially cheaper than fossil fuel and unlimited in supply. Only investments into facilities for converting renewable energy to electricity and heat and their maintenance are required. Regarding geothermal energy, Japan is located on the edges of four tectonic plates and is ranked third world wide in volcanic activity. Its underground is very hot. Regarding wind power, a Japan Wind Power Association (industry) study of May 2014 [11] states that by 2050 Japan may develop up to 75 GW of wind power capacity from currently only 2.789 GW. Moreover, the development of sufficient sustainable domestic renewable energy sources, has the undeniable potential to ease international relations, calm tensions, and eliminate a key motivation for armed conflict in the 21st century. The choice is between an ever more expensive import of fossil fuel or that we begin today to invest into our own energy potentials, building a new supply infrastructure, thereby permanently reducing energy import dependence. Finally, as much as Renewable Energy can secure the peace of Japan, renewable energy related Overseas Development Aid can also contribute to economic stability and peace in developing countries.

Emotions, Self-Interest and Self-Worth in Minimal Bargaining Interactions

Authors: Ramzi Suleiman, Yuval Samid
Comments: 40 Pages.

Studies on the ultimatum game explain the rejection of low offers as costly punishment imposed by responders on unfair proposers. It is also argued that negative emotions serve as the proximate mechanism for such behavior. This article reports two experimental studies demonstrating that the rejection of low offers is also driven by a desire to maintain a sense of self-worth and that negative emotions alone are poor predictors of responders’ rejections. For this purpose we used a novel variant of the ultimatum game, in which rejecting an offer results in the proposer keeping the entire amount, thus eliminating the possibility of punishment and replacing it with a possible positive reinforcement. Although rejections entail rewarding the proposers instead of punishing them, a sizable percentage of the responders rejected low offers. Accepting low offers was found to be associated with the desire for profit maximization, while rejecting similarly low offers was associated with the desire to maintain self-worth. The evolutionary puzzle of rejecting low offers, even at a cost of rewarding unfair proposers, is resolved by adopting a wider framework of human interactions; one which accounts not only for the bearing of an interaction on the players' material capital, but also on their symbolic capital. Within such a framework, the rejection of low offers in the investigated game, as in many significant real-life situations, is explained as costly signals aimed at protecting attributes of symbolic capital, such as self-worth, status and prestige.

Communicative Message as Nuclear Thinking of an Aspirational Desire

Authors: Ștefan Vlăduțescu
Comments: 16 Pages.

The paper is positioned in the Fundamentals of Communication Science zone. The approach is message-meanings centered and assumes that, at meta-analytic level, the message is the nucleus of communication. The first axiomatic finding is that, on semantic dimension, the message is an edifice of meanings. A second axiomatic finding is that, on operational dimension, the message is common construction of communicators. A third axiomatic finding is that, on ontological dimension, the message has no independent existance; as volatile as the meaning, the message takes the concrete form of discourse. A fourth axiomatic finding is that, on the pragmatic dimension, efficient and effective message is given that speech with which it is trained is planned and prepared in advance. Finally, fifth axiomatic finding is that the message is articulated threefold: cognitive, affective and volitional, ie communicative message is nuclear thinking of an aspirational desire.

A Battle with Uncertainty 1 of Communication as an Academic Discipline: Title Uncertainty

Authors: Ștefan Vlăduțescu
Comments: 11 Pages.

The study falls within the basic research component of General Communication Science and deals with one of the major ontological uncertainty of communication as an academic discipline: uncertainty about the title. It is considered a meta-analysis of denominative options. First, it appears that, in fact, there are four communication uncertainties: uncertainty regarding title, uncertainty about status, uncertainty of place and uncertainty of unificationfragmentation. Then in a constructive-cognitive-cogitative approach of titles under which communication is studied (“Communication”, “Communication theory”, “Communicology”, “Communication study”, “Communication studies”, “Communication science”, "Sciences de l' information et de la communication"); it highlights the uncertainty on the title. Our meta-analytic approach is to remove a few nuclei of certainty from the mass of uncertainty. From these ideational formations of certainty crystallized by meta-analysis General Communication Science results a possible, rigorous, robust, flexible and convergent title, consisting of Fundamental Communication Science, Applied Communication Research and "Grounded Practical" Communication Application. The war with the uncertainties must continue: the other three are to be studied.

Exploring Nonlinear Analysis in Cartography and Vexillology

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian
Comments: 6 Pages.

The nonlinear analysis techniques have accelerated and enhanced man’s understanding of underlying system dynamics, evolution and patterns. The present work pertains to the unprecedented exploration of nonlinear analysis in two geography-oriented disciplines – cartography and vexillology. Specifically, the tools of fractal dimension and entropy are used to characterize the outline of around 200 countries, following which entropy for the red, green and blue color distributions of the corresponding flags are computed. Key inferences are listed, one of which is the remarkable correlation observed in all cases between the three entropies. Finally, it is hoped that the analysis techniques discussed and explored in the present work forms a preliminary step in applying the time tested successful techniques of nonlinear analysis to geography oriented disciplines.

Tracing the Origins of Human Civilization – a Study Backed by Archaeology, Linguistics, Cymatics and Genographics

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian
Comments: 20 Pages.

The pre-history of ancient India seems to be shrouded in mystery. Today, a secular country and the home of some of the most important religions, little can be said with concrete evidence about its past, especially before the Indus Valley Civilization (IVC). This has thus become a hot topic of debate and controversy among archaeologists and historians alike, and with the uncovering of artifacts and evidences from Archaeology, Genetics, Linguistics and Mythology alike, a lot of light is being shed on this mystery, and what seems to emerge are some shocking facts about this land. This work tries in the first place to consolidate such data collected by various fields, and also by experiments and inferences made by the author. It also takes into account various theories proposed till date, and with all this information, tries to consolidate and come up with one single theory/hypothesis that details the evolution and cultural and linguistic development of India and the effects it had on the rest of the world. Much focus is placed on the linguistic aspects at the initial stage and going forward,Genographic studies, Archaeology and mythology are also explored. As many linguists have pointed out, the earliest languages in India seem to be two, and these two are the early versions of Sanskrit and Tamil. The various inferences and the contributions made by the author together are summed up in a Core Hypothesis.

Smart Analytics of Social Networking Trends

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian
Comments: 20 Pages.

The current era of Information Technology has enabled one to access a wealth of information regarding public opinion and market trends through web search behaviour exploring tools such as Google Trends. As a testimony to this fact, the present work purports to encouraging the use of such “Smart Analytics” techniques by presenting Trend Search based inferences and discussion of interest in the four social networking sites Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Snapchat in 30 different countries around the world. The results provide valuable insights into group trends such as the rise, saturation and decline in the interests of such services and their dependence on various factors such as internet connection speeds and penetration rates, while also exploring exceptional cases and other individual aspects of social networking trends. While from a managerial perspective, such results can be used to assess market trends and demands, the inferences also provide useful information to administrators and governments, as well as the common man to understand the current trends and plan investments of time and money accordingly.

Literary Communication and Existential Formula in Epic Addressing

Authors: Ștefan Vlăduțescu
Comments: 4 Pages.

The study is circumscribed to theory of literary communication and highlights the fact that there are different dedicated formulas of epic addressing. The existential formula joints in epic addressing are examined. As an example, we use Gabriel Chifuřs novel, "Story of my Death". First, it appears that this novel belongs to a thematic topology whose axes are are also found in books by Lev Tolstoy, AP Chekhov, J. L. Borges or F. Kafka. Later it is made visible that the differentiating contribution of Gabriel Chifuřs epic work lies in making clear from death an event of life and to show that, whenever it occurs, death captures as the ultimate existential event, catching the man, however, unprepared. Existential formula in epic addressing consists of understanding that the stake of death is the assumed life as unique experience.

Self-Education Through Web-Searching an Exploratory Study

Authors: Răzvan-Alexandru Călin
Comments: 12 Pages.

The 21st century is marked by the extensive and easy access to information through the virtual environment. Do we find in today’s Romanian school the presence of a formative space - on the one hand, facilitator for a maximal exploitation of opportunities, and on the other hand, a “sensor” for new risks, characteristic to the information era? Is the “digital generation” (Mark Prensky) of the beginning of century in Romania ready from these perspectives? The present paper outlines the results of a comparative exploratory study regarding the ordinary methods used by youngsters - from 5th and 6th grades, as well as 11th and 12th grades, from six different schools, high-schools and colleges from Dolj county – to find information about different topics/homework. The results offer the premises for hypothesis regarding this phenomenon at national level. The conclusions indicate as the main method of obtaining information the web-searching. They emphasize the absence of an initial specific educational training in this domain and allow the delineation of a suggestive image regarding possible future methods of action.

EVOLUÇÃO Urbana do MUNICÍPIO DE Lajeado: um Estudo Configuracional

Authors: Aline Cristiane Scheibe, Livia Teresinha Salomão Piccinini, Andrea da Costa Braga
Comments: 21 Pages.

A região denominada Vale do Taquari abrange 36 municípios da região central do estado do Rio Grande do Sul, polarizada pelo município de Lajeado e, colonizada por imigrantes de origem alemã, italiana e açoriana. O aparecimento de indústrias e o desenvolvimento do comércio e do setor de serviços provocaram um crescimento urbano regional significativo nos últimos 40 anos. Em 1970, 74,27% da população vivia no meio rural e, passadas quatro décadas, o quadro praticamente se inverteu: hoje 73,84% vive na zona urbana (IBGE, 2010). Tendo em vista tal crescimento urbano, o presente trabalho analisa o processo de evolução urbana do território do município de Lajeado através do levantamento de dados históricos e configuracionais do núcleo urbano de 1898 (ano de fundação) até os dias atuais. Trabalha-se com a hipótese de que a inserção da rodovia BR 386 alterou os padrões espaciais através dos quais se efetiva a expansão urbana modificando a estrutura de integração da configuração espacial. O enfoque adotado é o da análise configuracional, onde a estrutura da malha urbana é analisada em termos de acessibilidade e centralidade, a partir das medidas sintáticas de integração local e global e, ainda, a medida de escolha (choice).O estudo tem como objetivo principal mostrar a evolução da malha urbana ao longo do crescimento da cidade, analisando a inserção da rodovia e sua influência na rede urbana.

Cidades DE Pequeno Porte em Santa Catarina: Uma Reflexão Sobre Planejamento Territorial

Authors: Cláudia Maté, Talita Micheleti, Alina Gonçalves Santiago
Comments: 20 Pages.

Apesar de serem maioria no território nacional e também no estado de Santa Catarina, as cidades de pequeno porte são as que menos possuem ferramentas de planejamento adequadas à sua realidade. A partir de 2001, o Estatuto da Cidade prevê a obrigatoriedade de elaboração de Plano Diretor nas cidades com população superior a 20.000 habitantes. Contudo, além de não atender uma significativa parcela dos municípios brasileiros, 69,15%, esta Lei também se mostra insuficiente em estabelecer diretrizes adequadas à realidade das pequenas cidades, bem como para o planejamento do seu espaço rural. Com base nesta problemática, este artigo tem como objetivo discutir a predominância dos municípios de pequeno porte no estado de Santa Catarina. A metodologia inicialmente consiste em uma breve revisão bibliográfica sobre a temática tratada, em seguida é realizada a coleta e processamento de dados do IBGE e órgãos municipais. Como resultado, têm-se mapeamentos temáticos do estado que ilustram sua dinâmica demográfica, a ligação existente entre o espaço urbano e rural, e correlacionando-os à existência de Plano Diretor nos municípios catarinenses.

Espacialidade do Medo e INSEGURANÇA PÚBLICA: Ensaio Sobre os Efeitos da Uhe Belo Monte na Cidade de Altamira no Pará

Authors: José Antônio Herrera, Rodolfo Pragana Moreira
Comments: 16 Pages.

As discussões sobre as espacialidades do medo e a insegurança pública na geografia, configuram-se incipiente na produção do pensamento geográfico. O mote neste artigo está em compreender as desigualdades sócio-espaciais consolidadas com a construção da Usina Hidrelétrica Belo Monte (UHE Belo Monte) na Microrregião de Altamira. Para isso, analisaram-se dados secundários de organizações públicas e websites que tratam das problemáticas estruturadas no texto, mormente acerca da expansão do medo e da insegurança social na cidade, variáveis consolidadas pelas dinâmicas sócio-espaciais no bojo da construção da hidrelétrica. Sobre o contexto, percebeu-se existir um avanço exponencial nas representações sociais do medo e na materialização de desigualdades face a construção de um projeto que tem como discurso o desenvolvimento socialmente correto e ambientalmente sustentável.

La GESTIÓN DE la POLÍTICA PÚBLICA DE Vivienda en la REGIÓN Litoral Norte Del Uruguay

Authors: Natalia Bisio, Natalie Robaina
Comments: 11 Pages.

El trabajo que se presenta es producto de los avances realizados en el marco de un proyecto de investigación en curso, retomando elementos presentados en instancias tales como el VII Congreso Latinoamericano de Ciencia Política y la X Bienal del Coloquio Transformaciones Territoriales. El mismo pretende dar cuenta de los aspectos políticos y sociales que sustentan el diseño e implementación de la política social de vivienda entendida como una forma de construcción del espacio público. Para ello se toman como referencia algunos programas sociales de vivienda desarrollados durante el período 2005 – 2012, dirigidos a atender la demanda habitacional de sectores que no pueden acceder a ella en el mercado, poniendo énfasis en las respuestas brindadas a aquéllos con mayores dificultades socioeconómicas. La discusión que se presenta en el documento da cuenta de la complejidad que implica concebir a la vivienda no sólo como espacio privado sino sobre todo como constructora del espacio público, poniendo de manifiesto la necesidad de repensar la política social de vivienda intrínsecamente relacionada con la estructura económica, sociopolítica y cultural de cada territorio.

Las ÁREAS Centrales en Las Ciudades Intermedias Del Uruguay: Valores Locales en Tiempos DE Transformaciones Globales. el Análisis de la Ciudad de Salto

Authors: Juan Ferrer Pamparato
Comments: 13 Pages.

El trabajo propone el estudio de áreas centrales para las ciudades intermedias del Uruguay intentando revelar las correlaciones que se establecen entre las tensiones provocadas por el desarrollo económico y la reducción de la calidad ambiental del espacio urbano más significativo en estas localidades. Es precisamente la identificación de esta categoría de ciudades y una inquietud común por la renovación de sus áreas centrales, lo que entendemos, asigna pertinencia a este enfoque. Si bien el análisis se centra en el caso de la ciudad de Salto, la existencia de situaciones similares permite aplicar en otros contextos, los conceptos que aquí se consideran para este caso particular. La reflexión que se presenta gira en torno al concepto de centralidad entendida como entidad urbana de convergencia social y ámbito de referencia para la vida colectiva, con el objetivo de sistematizar información, a efectos de aportar algunas pautas para la revisión de las políticas públicas relativas a la planificación urbana y la gestión del espacio público y mejorar finalmente la calidad de vida de las poblaciones. Así entendido, el análisis intenta ser aplicable a los centros reconocidos históricamente, así como a centralidades secundarias de carácter barrial o zonal, que comparten un valor común: el sentido social que asume la idea de centro en los procesos de construcción de ciudadanía.

POLÍTICAS PÚBLICAS e Adolescentes em Conflito Com a Lei: Revisão Sistemática da Literatura Nacional

Authors: Lisiane Ligia Mella, Jéssica Limberger, Ilana Andretta
Comments: 12 Pages.

Políticas públicas voltadas ao adolescente em conflito com a lei têm sido amplamente destacadas ao longo da história brasileira, principalmente após o processo de redemocratização do país, que culminou na promulgação da Constituição Federal de 1988 e o posterior Estatuto da Criança e do Adolescente (ECA) em 1990. A presente revisão bibliográfica objetiva descrever estudos brasileiros de 2005 a 2015 acerca das políticas públicas dos adolescentes em conflito com a lei, analisando se tais estudos abordam a temática no contexto das pequenas e médias cidades. As bases de dados consultadas foram: Lilacs; Index Psicologia - Periódicos técnicocientíficos e HISA - História da Saúde. Os artigos analisados evidenciam que a temática tem sido pouco abordada dentro do recorte temporal estabelecido. Todavia, alguns temas centrais aparecem, como: a necessidade de articulação das políticas públicas de cada cidade no atendimento ao adolescente em conflito com a lei; carência na integração das políticas para o efetivo funcionamento em rede; e a importância do trabalho interdisciplinar nas políticas públicas de cidades tanto pequenas e médias como em cidades grandes.

SEGREGAÇÃO Socioespacial na REGIÃO Metropolitana DE Belo Horizonte: O Estigma de Ribeirão Das Neves/mg

Authors: Osmar Henrique Ribeiro da Silva, Ítalo Itamar Caixeiro Stephan
Comments: 17 Pages.

O crescimento urbano de Belo Horizonte é um processo de expansão populacional e territorial para além dos limites do município. O objetivo desse trabalho é analisar o processo de segregação socioespacial que se expressa na Região Metropolitana de Belo Horizonte (RMBH) e investigar o processo de expansão periférica em direção ao Município de Ribeirão das Neves. A análise do processo tem como referência a formação do município de Neves baseada na implantação das penitenciárias e dos loteamentos populares, exemplificando a lógica da estruturação centro-periferia. Para a pesquisa foi realizado o levantamento documental e bibliográfico sobre o tema em artigos, revistas e demais dados do IBGE e da Fundação João Pinheiro. Através da pesquisa teórica foi observado um crescimento rápido e expressivo da malha urbana da RMBH, evidenciando um fenômeno de desigualdade socioespacial nesse espaço intrametropolitano. Constatou-se que a segregação socioespacial representa uma das dimensões mais expressivas desse fenômeno, encontrando principalmente nos municípios periféricos metropolitanos sua máxima, no caso em questão Ribeirão das Neves. Nesse município observou-se a implantação de loteamentos irregulares, juntamente com a implantação de unidades prisionais, favorecendo um cenário atual de um baixo grau de desenvolvimento destinado à população de baixa renda e de uma paisagem homogênea onde é notável a ausência de infraestrutura adequada.

A CONTRIBUIÇÃO da Academia Para Mobilidade Urbana SUSTENTÁVEL Por Meio do Programa DE EXTENSÃO UNIVERSITÁRIA da Ufpr – Ciclovida

Authors: Silvana Nakamori, José Carlos Assunção Belotto, Moisés Francisco Farah Junior, Antônio Gonçalves Oliveira
Comments: 19 Pages.

Congestionamentos, acidentes de trânsito e poluição são alguns problemas resultantes de uma cultura de mobilidade que prioriza o transporte individual por meio do automóvel e o resultado dessa prioridade é a deteriorização da qualidade de vida urbana. A fim de tentar reverter esse panorama surge na UFPR o Programa de Extensão Universitária Ciclovida, acreditando que a Academia tem a obrigação de estar na vanguarda das transformações que a sociedade necessita, pois através da pesquisa, ensino e extensão visa-se à formação de uma cultura de mobilidade urbana saudável e sustentável, pelo do uso da bicicleta como um dos meios de transporte. O objetivo deste artigo é demonstrar as contribuições da academia para a mobilidade urbana sustentável focando no Programa Ciclovida e a metodologia utilizada foi à pesquisa documental, sendo também uma pesquisa aplicada, qualitativa, exploratória, descritiva e bibliográfica. Dentre os resultados está à descrição do Programa e o Desafio Intermodal (anos de 2007 a 2013), demonstrando que a Academia pode sim contribuir com a mobilidade urbana.

Suicide by Democracy-a Review of Ann Coulter's Adios America-the Left's Plan to Turn America Into a Third World Hell-Hole

Authors: Richard Wilson
Comments: 17 Pages.

Coulter outlines the recent history of immigration and how it is rapidly turning America into another Mexico. From the broader perspective I take, this book presents the American chapter of the sad story of the inexorable destruction of the world by unrestrained motherhood. Forty-seven years ago 396 politicians voted to embrace the destruction of America by the 3rd world. Without the changes they and William Brennan’s court made (along with failure to enforce our immigration laws), we would have about 80 million fewer people now and at least 150 million fewer in 2100,along with trillions of dollars in savings. We would have a chance to deal with the immense problems we and the world face. But, burdened with a fatally fragmented (i.e., ‘diverse’) population about twice the size we might have had, half of which will not contribute to the solution, but rather constitute the problem, it is impossible. What we see is that democracy as practiced here and now guarantees a fatally inept government. Peace and prosperity worldwide will vanish and military coups, terrorism and warlords will become routine, probably by the end of this century, certainly during the next. I discuss some possible solutions.

Interpretating and Expanding Laozi’s Governing A Large Country Is Like Cooking A Small Fish with Neutrosophy and Quad-stage Method

Authors: Fu Yuhua
Comments: 7 Pages.

Based on interpreting and expanding Confucius' Golden Mean through neutrosophic tetrad, this paper discusses interpretating and expanding Laozi’s governing a large country is like cooking a small fish with neutrosophy and quad-stage method. There are many different ways for interpretating and expanding, and come to different conclusions. This paper emphasizes the results that besides governing a large country is like cooking a small fish, we should also consider that governing a large Chinese style country is like cooking a small Chinese style fish, governing a large American style country is like cooking a small American style fish, and the like; as well as governing a large country is like cooking a medium fish, governing a large country is like cooking a big fish, governing a medium country is like cooking a small fish, governing a medium country is like cooking a medium fish, governing a medium country is like cooking a big fish, governing a small country is like cooking a small fish, governing a small country is like cooking a medium fish, governing a small country is like cooking a big fish, and the like; governing a large country covers cooking a small fish, governing a large country is not like cooking a small fish, and the like. Finally, according to neutrosophic tetrad, this famous remark can be expanded as follows, simultaneously consider governing a large country, a medium country, and a small country are like cooking a small fish, a medium fish, and a big fish; as well as governing a large province, a medium province, and a small province are like cooking a small fish, a medium fish, and a big fish; governing a big city, a medium city, and a small city are like cooking a small fish, a medium fish, and a big fish; governing a big ministry, a medium ministry, and a small ministry are like cooking a small fish, a medium fish, and a big fish; and the like. Of course, "cooking various fishes" can also be replaced by "cooking various fishes and foods", because "Food is the paramount necessity of the people". Key words: Neutrosophy, quad-stage method, interpretation, expansion, governing a large country is like cooking a small fish, neutrosophic tetrad

Determinants of Hiv Infection in Nigeria: a Synthesis of the Literature

Authors: Olatunji Joshua Awoleye, Chris Thron
Comments: 19 Pages.

Background: Nigeria has an estimated 3.5 million HIV positive individuals, ranking third worldwide. This study analyzed the determinants of HIV infection to improve HIV programming in Nigeria and developing countries. Methodology: The methodology used was a literature review of grey and electronic databases of reviewed journals, and application of Dahlgren and Whitehead (1991) determinants of health model. A total of 45 publications (21 reports and 24 articles were reviewed). Results: New infections are emerging at increasing rates among individuals engaging in sexual relationships such as men having sex with men (MSM) and female sex work (FSW). The level of political commitment to HIV control is extremely low: currently, the government of Nigeria provides less than 10 percent of the funding for HIV control efforts in Nigeria, the rest coming from foreign sources and private sectors. Political, work environment, gender, healthcare service and lifestyle determinants are predominant over others. Conclusion: HIV control in Nigeria is financially over-dependent on foreign interventions. Political actions are required to address sexual orientations. Most-at-risk populations require education, legal requirements, and healthcare services in order to minimize new infection.

Impact of Torsion Fields on Our Health. Notes of a Practicing Dowser

Authors: V.E. Prigozhin
Comments: 5 Pages.

The author narrates (in Russian) about influence of CW (right) and CCW (left) Torsion Fields, TF, on human health. All the considered fields are produced by the environment of human dwellings, such as furniture, landscapes and their geometry as well as a lot of subjects of our everyday living. Even the geometry of dentistry works can influence a health of the patient. The author states that CW fields are mostly auspicious, while the CCW are inauspicious for human health. A 30 year experience of the author in this practice results in developing special simple means to mitigate and neutralize negative natural sources of unwanted TF.

Should Google use Ad Tracking or Targeting?

Authors: Andrew Nassif
Comments: 8 Pages.

Companies like Google are using our search engine results to send us ads targeted towards hoping for an impulse buy or using what we search against us. Tracking of our search engine results and IP address by Google raises concerns of possible violations of privacy by many people. People such as Steven Aftergood state that we are beginning to have a higher lack of privacy and our data. Everything from our web browsing data, search engine results, and cookies are being tracked by both the government and third party sites to either send us targeted ads or to have something against us in the case if we ever get into any trouble. Deborah Hurley states, “We need to take account our human rights when it concerns our privacy.” The purpose of this paper is to bring about awareness of this current issue through a logical, yet philosophical standpoint.

Understanding Social-Force Model in Psychological Principles of Collective Behaviors

Authors: Peng Wang
Comments: 3 Pages.

To well understand crowd behavior, microscopic models have been developed in recent decades, in which an individual's behavioral/psychological status can be modeled and simulated. A well-known model is the social-force model innovated by physical scientists. A problem, however, is that the testing results of the model were not explained in consistency with the social-psychological findings, resulting in misunderstanding of the model by most social-psychologists. This paper will bridge the gap between psychological studies and physical explanation about this model. We interpret this physics-based model from a psychological perspective, clarifying that the model is consistent with psychological studies on stress and time-pressure. The simulation result of this model actually explicates how stress could improve or impair collective performance of crowd behaviors.

A Comment on "Family Ruptures, Stress, and the Mental Health of the Next Generation"

Authors: Nicolas Bearbaki
Comments: 5 Pages.

Persson and Rossin-Slater (2016b) claim to be the first to credibly estimate causal effects of fetal stress exposure on mental health in later life. They emphasize that their analysis is the first to control for non-random exposure to a relative’s death and non-random gestation length. In light of discoveries regarding prior literature, we find these claims to be exaggerated and misleading.

A Call for Our Ethical Responsibilities and Wisdom

Authors: Kunwar Jagdish Narain
Comments: 9 Pages.

We observe that, starting from our families to all over the world, the unrest, intolerance, corruption, crimes and militancy etc. are continuously growing on day by day despite all our efforts starting from social, spiritual, administration levels to all the possible levels. It is because, the root cause that is responsible for all these, we never tried to find out. The day, every member of every family starts thinking about his/her ethical responsibilities towards all the rest of the members of his/her family, his/her neighbors, citizens of his/her city and country etc., applying his/her wisdom - a special and very important gift with which God has blessed we all the human beings, unrest, intolerance, corruption, crimes and militancy etc. all shall start decreasing in place of growing.

About the Name of Actually Communication Studying Discipline

Authors: Ştefan Vlăduţescu
Comments: 7 Pages.

This study explores the literature on the name of discipline which seeks communication. It notes that there are various names designating this subject: Communication Theory, Communication Science, Sciences de l'Information et of Communication (SIC), Communicology, Communication studies. It appears, then, that the discipline dealing with the phenomena of communication is (along with Psychology, Anthropology and Sociology) a social science. There is that, although seem to refe r to one and the same phenomenon of communication,referred disciplines not examine the communication as a whole, but focuses on different areas; ie they are fragmented. Starting from the origin and connection (Lat. "Communis" + the Gr. Word "logos" "speech , thought, study") and making use of the analogy of Sociology (Latin word "Socius" + Gr. "Logos" ) and Anthropology (Gr. "anthropos" + "logos") is seeking a convergence of names. It is estimated that it should reach convergence in respect of at least two c riteria: the study of communication as a whole and understanding communication as a multi - structured universe. Such criteria somehow it would comply with a title like "Strong Communication Science Communicology". Yet the question persists and therefore the future must be sought arguments to name a possible unitary communication science.

A Brief Review of Social-Force Model in Psychological Principles

Authors: Peng Wang
Comments: 4 Pages.

To well understand crowd behavior, microscopic models have been developed in recent decades, in which an individual's behavioral/psychological status can be modeled and simulated. A well-known model is the social-force model innovated by physical scientists (Helbing and Molnar, 1995; Helbing, Farkas and Vicsek, 2000; Helbing and Johansson, 2014). This model has been widely accepted and mainly used in simulation of crowd evacuation in the past decade. A problem, however, is that the testing results of the model were not explained in consistency with the social-psychological findings, resulting in misunderstanding of the model by social-psychologists. This paper will bridge the gap between psychological studies and physical explanation about this model. We interpret this physics-based model from a psychological perspective, clarifying that the model is consistent with psychological studies on stress and time-pressure. The simulation result of this model actually explicates how stress could improve or impair collective performance of crowd at a bottleneck.
