Which narrations for persuasive technologies? : Habits and procedures in Ayiti: The Cost of Life

Riccardo Fusaroli & Gabriele Ferri
Ayiti: The Cost of Life is a very successful edutainment game pursuing persuasive aims through an unusually high level of difficulty. Analyzing this game, comprehending its unfolding meaning-making processes and describing its persuasive effectiveness is a challenging task. To achieve it, it will be necessary to discuss how semiotics, ludology and procedural criticism intend narrativity in relation to games. A novel approach, based on Peirce’s notion of habit, will be used to overcome some analytical...

A novel approach to forensic molecular biology education and training: it’s impact on the criminal justice system

Khalid Mahmud Lodhi, Robert Livingston Grier & Paul J. Speaker
The managers of crime laboratories face significant hurdles when preparing new hires to become productive members of the laboratory. New hires require six months of training/experience in the crime laboratory before becoming a productive member of the Biology (DNA) section. To address this deficiency in forensic DNA education, a novel forensic education curriculum was developed and tested for three consecutive years in the forensic science program at Fayetteville State University, Fayetteville, NC. The curriculum used...

Acoustic profiling in a complexly social species, the American crow: caws encode information on caller sex, identity and behavioural context

, Robin R. Tarter, James C. Ha, Anne B. Clark & Kevin J. McGowan
Previous research on inter-individual variation in the calls of corvids has largely been restricted to single call types, such as alarm or contact calls, and has rarely considered the effects of age on call structure. This study explores structural variation in a contextually diverse set of ‘caw’ calls of the American crow (Corvus brachyrhynchos), including alarm, foraging recruitment and territorial calls, and searches for structural features that may be associated with behavioural context and caller...

PhD Project : Mapping the Open Science Movement: Characteristics and Impact on the Research System (April 2014)

The Open Science (OS) movement explores and prototypes new practices and methods of production, diffusion, and use of knowledge. It consists of a variety of initiatives (Open Access, Open Data, Open Labs) aiming at a more open, transparent and collaborative scientific process both inside and outside academic research (Citizen Scientists). This movement seems to emerge in symbiosis with Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and peer-to-peer and contributive modes of organization (Open Culture). Given the rising...

Opodatkowanie sportowców = Taxation of Sportsmen. Journal of Health Sciences. 2014;04(04):011-016. ISSN 1429-9623 / 2300-665X.

, Mariusz Klimczyk & Agata Klimczyk
Streszczenie Artykuł przedstawia podstawowe regulacja prawa wewnętrznego i międzynarodowego dotyczące opodatkowania dochodów uzyskiwanych przez sportowców. Autorzy dokonują spostrzeżenia, że wewnętrzne prawo podatkowe stawia sportowców w niekorzystnej sytuacji optymalizacyjno-podatkowej w przeciwieństwie do międzynarodowych regulacji. Celem pracy jest przedstawienie sytuacji podatkowej sportowca w RP. Podsumowując należy zwrócić uwagę przede wszystkim na fakt, że nie istnieje możliwość planowania podatkowego dla dochodów pochodzących z działalności sportowej wykonywanej w Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej, ponieważ dochody sportowców podlegają tylko art. 10 ustawy o...

Quantifying ligand–receptor interactions for gorge-spanning acetylcholinesterase inhibitors for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease

Elvis A.F. Martis, Rakesh C. Chandarana, , , Jacinta S. D’Souza, Krishna R. Iyer, , Santosh R. Nandan &
There is a need for continued development of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitors that could prolong the life of acetylcholine in the synaptic cleft and also prevent the aggregation of amyloid peptides associated with Alzheimer’s disease. The lack of a 3D-QSAR model which specifically deconvulates the type of interactions and quantifies them in terms of energies has motivated us to report a CoRIA model vis-à-vis the standard 3D-QSAR methods, CoMFA and CoMSIA. The CoRIA model was found...

Synthesis of 2-(4-Hydroxy-6-methyl-2-oxo-2H-pyran-3-carbonyl)-6,6-dimethyl-3-phenyl-3,5,6,7-tetrahydro-2H-benzofuran-4-one Derivatives via Multicomponent Reaction

A sequential one-pot, two-step reaction for an efficient preparation of 2-(4-hydroxy-6-methyl-2-oxo-2H-pyran-3-carbonyl)-6,6-dimethyl-3-phenyl-3,5,6,7-tetrahydro-2H-benzofuran-4-one derivatives has been described. One-pot reaction of in situ–formed benzopyran-substituted pyridinium ylides with aromatic aldehydes and dimedone gives corresponding 2,3-dihydrofurans in good yields. The structures of all the newly synthesized compounds were confirmed from their analytical and spectral data.

How do markets change? Findings from a 7-year longitudinal processual investi- gation of consumer performances in the war on music downloading suggest that markets in the cultural creative sphere (those organizing the exchange of intellec- tual goods such as music, movies, software, and the written word) evolve through stages of perpetual structural instability. Each stage addresses an enduring cultural tension between countervailing utilitarian and possessive ideals. Grounded in an- thropology and consumer behavior, I illustrate...

From digital competence to the civic engagement

Pablo Sánchez-Antolín, Francisco Javier Ramos-Pardo & Montserrat Blanco-García
Currently the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) play an essential role. We might even say that they have become indispensable, for both economic and social development of citizens, as also of regions, nations... This requirement represents a serious risk of marginalization for people who do not have access to these technologies and a decrease in their opportunities of social participation.

Traditional land uses enhanced plant biodiversity in a Mediterranean agro-silvo-pastoral system

, , , &
Mediterranean agro-silvo-pastoral systems play a key role in view of the positive contribution that they could offer to a sustainable development of European agriculture. The knowledge of the vegetation dynamics and of the processes and land uses favoring different vegetation types related to the same actual potential natural vegetation (PNV) could represent a sound reference framework for monitoring and managing plant biodiversity in these systems. The aim of the research was to evaluate plant diversity...

Taxonomic clarification of the dinophyte Rhabdosphaera erinaceus Kamptner, ≡ Scrippsiella erinaceus comb. nov. (Thoracosphaeraceae, Peridiniales)

Juliane Kretschmann, Carmen Zinssmeister & Marc Gottschling
The Scrippsiella trochoidea species complex (Thoracosphaeraceae, Peridiniales) consists of a cryptic diversity and multiple species, for which established scientific names are not available at present. Previously, the name Scrippsiella trochoidea has been taxonomically clarified, leaving a reliable determination of morphologically similar, but only distantly related species impossible. We isolated and cultivated Scrippsiella erinaceus comb. nov. (strains GeoM*533 and GeoM*534) from material collected near the type locality off Rovinj, Republic of Croatia (Adriatic Sea). We barcoded...

Defining Sustainability through Developers' Eyes: Recommendations from an Interview Study

Mário Rosado De Souza, Robert Haines & Caroline Jay
Defining 'software sustainability' in the context of research, and determining how best to support it, remains a considerable challenge. The research reported here approaches the question from a new direction by asking research software developers to provide their own experience of and opinions about sustainability.
Two main themes emerged from the study: intrinsic sustainability - concerned with aspects of the software itself - and extrinsic sustainability - concerned with the environment in which it is developed....

Denise M. Gaughan, Chris A. Piacitelli, , Brandon F. Law, , Nicole T. Edwards, Paul L. Enright, Diane E. Schwegler-Berry, Stephen S. Leonard, Gregory R. Wagner, Lester Kobzik, Stefanos N. Kales, Michael D. Hughes, David C. Christiani, Paul D. Siegel, Jean M. Cox-Ganser & Mark D. Hoover
Respiratory problems are common among wildland firefighters. However, there are few studies directly linking occupational exposures to respiratory effects in this population. Our objective was to characterize wildland fire fighting occupational exposures and assess their associations with cross-shift changes in lung function. We studied 17 members of the Alpine Interagency Hotshot Crew with environmental sampling and pulmonary function testing during a large wildfire. We characterized particles by examining size distribution and mass concentration, and conducting...
