Homesteading, Ad Coelum, Owning Views and Forestalling
Walter Block
The Social Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: Homesteading, not the ad coelum doctrine, is compatible with libertarianism. In the former case, one mixes his labor with unowned land and a means of establishing private property rights in it and what is owned is limited to just that which has undergone this process. In the latter case, homesteading a square mile of land enables the owner of it to extend his property rights in a pyramid shaped form from his holdings on the surface down into the core of the earth and up into the heavens, with no limit.
Views, Program Transformations, and the Evolutivity Problem in a Functional Language  [PDF]
Julien Cohen,Rémi Douence
Computer Science , 2010,
Abstract: We report on an experience to support multiple views of programs to solve the tyranny of the dominant decomposition in a functional setting. We consider two possible architectures in Haskell for the classical example of the expression problem. We show how the Haskell Refactorer can be used to transform one view into the other, and the other way back. That transformation is automated and we discuss how the Haskell Refactorer has been adapted to be able to support this automated transformation. Finally, we compare our implementation of views with some of the literature.
Improving Usability of Interactive Graphics Specification and Implementation with Picking Views and Inverse Transformations  [PDF]
Stéphane Conversy
Computer Science , 2011,
Abstract: Specifying and programming graphical interactions are difficult tasks, notably because designers have difficulties to express the dynamics of the interaction. This paper shows how the MDPC architecture improves the usability of the specification and the implementation of graphical interaction. The architecture is based on the use of picking views and inverse transforms from the graphics to the data. With three examples of graphical interaction, we show how to express them with the architecture, how to implement them, and how this improves programming usability. Moreover, we show that it enables implementing graphical interaction without a scene graph. This kind of code prevents from errors due to cache consistency management.
The Theory and Application of Utilizing Jalāl-ad-Dīn Rumi’s Spiritual and Moral Views  [PDF]
Izbullaeva Gulchehra Valerievna
Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.518186
Abstract: The article gives information about pedagogical sources of learning personality and scientific heritage of Jalāl-ad-Dīn Rumi (1207-1273), his philosophical views and role in the process of upbringing, the problem of spiritual upbringing of the person in his work “Masnaviyi ma’naviy” and theoretically substantiated information about using his vies during the process of education.
Invariants for Darboux transformations of Arbitrary Order for $D_x D_y +aD_x + bD_y +c$  [PDF]
Ekaterina Shemyakova
Physics , 2012,
Abstract: We develop the method of regularized moving frames of Fels and Olver to obtain explicit general formulas for the basis invariants that generate all the joint differential invariants, under gauge transformations, for the operators [\o{L}=D_xD_y +a(x,y) D_x + b(x,y) D_y +c(x,y)] and an operator of arbitrary order. The problem appeared in connection with invariant construction of Darboux transformations for $\o{L}$.
Review of Research , 2012,
Abstract: There are two distinct, though complementary, ways of envisaging the child: the psychological and the sociological. In France,the psychological approach has for the most part taken precedence over the sociological one. This has not only created a lacuna in our knowledge, but there has also been a tendency for psychology to tackle phenomena whose real determinants are collective or socialand to try to reduce them to individual terms. (It is true that a similar criticism can be leveled, mutatis mutandis, at the sociologists.)
Assoc. Prof. Dr. M. Ali K?RMAN
Journal of International Social Research , 2008,
Abstract: As it is known, the 20th century, especially the last decade of that century is characterized by the globalization. As a result of the economic globalization process some problems have emerged. One of the most important problems facing the world is violence and terror, another is environmental problems. The destruction of natural environment and its ecological impact on nature is one of the main concerns of ecologists and scholars. The aim of this paper is to summarize the intense debate about the nature, especially the religious and secularist views of the nature in sociological perspective. Firstly, I have given the views of some religions, great faiths about the natural world and then, I will summarize the secularist view of the nature and environment.
Prison and sociological perspective.  [cached]
Gilles Chantraine
Champ Pénal , 2006, DOI: 10.4000/champpenal.238
Abstract: Is a qualitative sociological study of prisons useful ? What a question! Doesn’t it seem pointless, out of place or provocative, or all three? Aren’t knowledge, the will to know, truth, objectivity and the scientific character of the work justifications in their own right, with their own positive value? Isn’t it legitimate for sociologists, and a fortiori, committed sociologists, to concentrate on deciphering the social forces and mechanisms at work in the reality of the prison world? An affi...
Sociological Inequality and the Second Law  [PDF]
Oded Kafri
Mathematics , 2008,
Abstract: There are two fair ways to distribute particles in boxes. The first way is to divide the particles equally between the boxes. The second way, which is calculated here, is to score fairly the particles between the boxes. The obtained power law distribution function yields an uneven distribution of particles in boxes. It is shown that the obtained distribution fits well to sociological phenomena, such as the distribution of votes in polls and the distribution of wealth and Benford's law.
Structure of sociological abstracts  [PDF]
Janko Klasinc,Alenka ?auperl
Knji?nica : Revija za Podro?je Bibliotekarstva in Informacijske Znanosti , 2006,
Abstract: The purpose of the study was to evaluate the suitability of SIST ISO 214 instructions for writing sociological abstracts. Through analysis of a sample of abstracts (N=200) obtained from the journals Dru boslovne razprave and International Sociology it has been possible to determine whether the instructions are consistent with the actual structure of abstracts. Examination of presence of ISO content categories in the sample showed high presence of category R (results) and low presence of categories P (purpose/ scope) and H (hypothesis). Coding with alternative Ranganathan facets based Spanring outline showed high presence of broadly defined Hu-bit element (energy, action) that captures large portions of text and consecutively loses meaning. Other, more specifically defined elements (active and passive elements, motivation, space, time) show good presence, but rather than describing text structure demonstrate better use for capturing key content factors. Both outlines can aid in writing sociological abstracts, but only introduction of a new T (topic) category makes ISO outline reflect the actual abstracts structure. A narrower definition or a division of Hu-bit element would improve the consistency of the Spanring outline, which could serve as means for abstract based indexing of documents.
