Fiction on Revolution
Moslem Zolfagharkhani
Studies in Literature and Language , 2012, DOI: 10.3968/2255
Abstract: The present study aims at showing Joseph Conrad’s Under Western Eyes as the author’s major deep concern about revolution and revolutionaries. Indeed the book is his memoire of both his past life and his mother country. The novel focuses on Razumov the central character and his unwanted involvement in political activities. Hence two worlds are depicted, one is the individual world of Razumov the student and the other is the communal world of the revolutionists. Under Western Eyes is a site for Conrad’s sentiments and inner responses where one comes across his obsessions about man and his society. Key words: Fiction; Joseph Conrad; Under Western Eyes; Revolution

Abstract: Hisham M Jammal,1,3 Yousef Khader,2 Riham Shawer,3 Muawyah Al Bdour41Department of Ophthalmology, Jordan University of Science and Technology, Irbid, Jordan; 2Department of Community Medicine, Public Health and Family Medicine, Jordan University of Science and Technology, Irbid, Jordan; 3Department of Ophthalmology, King Abdullah University Hospital, Irbid, Jordan; 4Department of Ophthalmology, The University of Jordan, Amman, JordanPurpose: To determine posterior segment causes of reduced visual acuity after phacoemulsification in eyes with cataract and obscured fundus view.Patients and methods: Retrospective review of medical records of patients with cataract, obscured fundus view, and normal B-scan ultrasonography, undergoing phacoemulsification from May 2005 to March 2012 was conducted. Eyes with fundus pathology, previous trauma, surgery, glaucoma, amblyopia, or uveitic cataract were excluded. Ocular comorbid conditions, preoperative visual acuity (VA), intraoperative and early postoperative complications, and final best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) at 1 month were abstracted from the records.Results: All 201 eyes of 179 patients studied had a preoperative VA of ≤6/60. Preoperative ocular comorbidity was present in 31 eyes (15.5%). Intraoperative complications occurred in 20 eyes (10%). Postoperative complications developed in 34 eyes (17.0%). One month postoperatively, 175 eyes (87.1%) achieved a BCVA of ≥6/12; whereas 26 eyes (12.9%) achieved a BCVA of ≤6/18. The most common posterior segment causes of reduced VA in the 26 eyes were age-related macular disease in ten eyes (38.5%) and diabetic maculopathy in six eyes (23.1%). Similar fundus pathology was seen preoperatively in the fellow fundus in 10 of the 26 eyes (38.5%).Conclusion: One month after phacoemulsification in eyes with cataract and obscured fundus view, age-related macular disease and diabetic maculopathy were the most common posterior segment causes of reduced final BCVA. To avoid postsurgical dissatisfaction, patients with obscured fundus view in their preoperative eye should be counseled, especially if posterior segment pathology exists in their fellow eye.Keywords: B-scan ultrasonography, fundus view, macula, outcome, phacoemulsifcation

Relevance of Feyerabend’s Scientific Anarchism to Scientific Advancement in Nigeria  [PDF]
Eugene Anowai, Christian Okafor
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2018.85035
Abstract: Against the western philosophy of globalization’s belief in only one system or a “rational” standard of justification, Paul Feyerabend defends methodological anarchism, which holds that there are alternative systems within which coherence can still be established. Feyerabend, in his objection and rejection of universal standard on method, holds that there are many systems and (even within science itself), each with its own standards of justification and as such, it is not possible to choose between them “rationally”, for they are incommensurable. So, in the place of the “rationality” of universal scientific and technological method, he talks of methodological plurality, or what he terms “Epistemological (Scientific) Anarchism”. On this ground, development, whether scientifically or technologically, must not be considered by some universal criteria, but should be sought on the bases of cultural heritage and geographical differences of each society. Thus, this essay is a clarion call on Nigeria (and Africa at large) to channel her scientific and technological developmental efforts to suit her socio-political demands as well as the particular cultural needs of her people.
The rebirth of anarchism in North America, 1957-2007  [cached]
David Graeber
Historia Actual Online , 2010,
Abstract: Anarchism has undergone a broad renewal in the US and Canada in recent decades, flowering most spectacularly in the alter-globalization movement in the years after the protests against the WTO ministerial in Seattle in November 1999. At the time, themovement seemed to outsiders to have spring out of nowhere. In fact, it was the product of a long development of transformation wheremovements of the ‘60s confronted internal dilemmas highlighted in the rise of feminism, and experiments with new organizationalmodels drawn from many different global contexts. A brief glance at debates concerning consensus decision-making and decentralizedorganization during the ‘50s and ‘60s civil rights movement and ‘70s anti-nuclear movement highlights how this came about.

Reinventing the Rose of Fire: Anarchism and the Movements against Corporate Globalization in Barcelona  [cached]
Jeffrey Juris
Historia Actual Online , 2010,
Abstract: This article explores the intersections between classic anarchist praxis and contemporary anti-corporate globalization activism in Barcelona. It engages in a sympathetic debate with two key literatures, pushing my argument in contrasting, yet ultimately related directions. I differ with accounts that emphasize an identity, arguing instead that anti-corporate globalizationmovements involve a confluence between anarchist principles and emerging networking logics associated with late capitalism. Given this affinity, anarchism is one among several related positions radicals adopt in particular contexts. Indeed, radical identities reflect a growing emphasis on multiplicity, openness, andflexibility. Attention to such specificities is important for analytical and strategic reasons.
Information Revolution  [PDF]
Akshar Bharati,Vineet Chaitanya,Rajeev Sangal
Computer Science , 2003,
Abstract: The world is passing through a major revolution called the information revolution, in which information and knowledge is becoming available to people in unprecedented amounts wherever and whenever they need it. Those societies which fail to take advantage of the new technology will be left behind, just like in the industrial revolution. The information revolution is based on two major technologies: computers and communication. These technologies have to be delivered in a COST EFFECTIVE manner, and in LANGUAGES accessible to people. One way to deliver them in cost effective manner is to make suitable technology choices (discussed later), and to allow people to access through shared resources. This could be done throuch street corner shops (for computer usage, e-mail etc.), schools, community centers and local library centres.
