 J.L. Helberg In die Skriflig , 1999, DOI: 10.4102/ids.v33i3.632 Abstract: Time in the epilogue of the book of Amos This article examines the concept of time, as filled with action, and as used in the epilogue of Amos. The concept of time is scrutinized in the light of the surprising announcement of prosperity and peace over and against the announcement of ruin in the rest of the book. The issue is approached against the background of Amos’ integrative as well as transcending (and eschatological) perspective. Viewed cyclically and mythologically, Israel integrated all things in the cult by trying to manipulate time and even God. In reality time and history were frozen in the Israelite way of thinking. This mode of thinking caused the disintegration of the cult from everyday life and from God who reveals Himself as personal and thus requiring sound personal relations between himself and His people. Amos calls for genuine integration in all respects. The epilogue leads this integration to a climax making use of the idea that Yahweh is the all-powerfull and life-creating God, an idea which runs like a golden thread through the Old Testament.
 International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health , 2011, DOI: 10.3390/ijerph8051341 Abstract: AGRICOH is a recently formed consortium of agricultural cohort studies involving 22 cohorts from nine countries in five continents: South Africa (1), Canada (3), Costa Rica (2), USA (6), Republic of Korea (1), New Zealand (2), Denmark (1), France (3) and Norway (3). The aim of AGRICOH, initiated by the US National Cancer Institute (NCI) and coordinated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), is to promote and sustain collaboration and pooling of data to investigate the association between a wide range of agricultural exposures and a wide range of health outcomes, with a particular focus on associations that cannot easily be addressed in individual studies because of rare exposures (e.g., use of infrequently applied chemicals) or relatively rare outcomes (e.g., certain types of cancer, neurologic and auto-immune diseases). To facilitate future projects the need for data harmonization of selected variables is required and is underway. Altogether, AGRICOH provides excellent opportunities for studying cancer, respiratory, neurologic, and auto-immune diseases as well as reproductive and allergic disorders, injuries and overall mortality in association with a wide array of exposures, prominent among these the application of pesticides.
 Paul Brest Judgment and Decision Making , 2006, Abstract: Together with his long-time colleague Daniel Kahneman, Amos Tversky, provided the intellectual infrastructure for contemporary behavioral law and economics. Prospect theory undermines the Coase Theorem, which is the bedrock of traditional law and economics; and the heuristics and biases research questions the fundamental idea of a rational self-interested decisionmaker, which is also challenged by subsequent studies of the role of affect in judgment and decisionmaking.
 BMC Developmental Biology , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1471-213x-6-53 Abstract: Amos protein expression has a complex pattern and shows temporally distinct phases, in common with previously characterised proneural genes. GFP reporter gene constructs were used to demonstrate that amos has an array of enhancer elements up- and downstream of the gene, which are required for different locations of amos expression. However, unlike other proneural genes, there is no evidence for separable enhancers for the different temporal phases of amos expression. Using mutant analysis and site-directed mutagenesis of potential Amos binding sites, we find no evidence for positive autoregulation as an important part of amos control during neurogenesis.For amos, as for other proneural genes, a complex expression pattern results from the sum of a number of simpler sub-patterns driven by specific enhancers. There is, however, no apparent separation of enhancers for distinct temporal phases of expression, and this correlates with a lack of positive autoregulation. For scute and atonal, both these features are thought to be important in the mechanism of neurogenesis. Despite similarities in function and expression between the Drosophila proneural genes, amos is regulated in a fundamentally different way from scute and atonal.Proneural genes are key regulators of neurogenesis. They encode transcription factors of the basic-helix-loop-helix (bHLH) family whose expression endows ectodermal cells with competence to become neural precursors. For the Drosophila PNS, the proneural genes achaete (ac), scute (sc), atonal (ato) and amos are required for the precursors of different subsets of sense organs and sensory neurons (sense organ precursors, SOPs) [1-8]. Each is expressed in a complex ectodermal pattern that prefigures the formation of these subsets of SOPs. SOPs/sense organs are missing in loss of function mutants, whereas ectopic proneural gene expression results in induction of ectopic SOPs/sense organs.Given their powerful effects in neurogenesis, it is not surprising
 Hao Wu Mathematics , 2015, Abstract: We derive boundary arm exponents and interior arm exponents for SLE$(\kappa)$. Combining with the possible convergence of critical lattice models to SLE, these exponents would give the corresponding alternating half-plane arm exponents and alternating plane arm exponents for the lattice models.
 Fran？ois Verdier In Situ : Revue de Patrimoines , 2012, DOI: 10.4000/insitu.1894 Abstract: L’Arménie est une petite république du Caucase, à la limite sud–est de l’Europe, qui a gagné son autonomie en 1990 après l’ouverture du bloc soviétique. Le nouveau Ministère du Patrimoine a sollicité la coopération de la France pour mettre en place une nouvelle politique culturelle. Tout d’abord, une évaluation sur place de la situation dans les domaines des monuments historiques, de l’archéologie et de l’Inventaire a permis d’envisager les réponses à proposer. Pour la demande d’informatisation des dossiers d’inventaire déjà réalisés sous l’autorité de l’Académie de Saint–Petersbourg, nous avons proposé de former des chercheurs arméniens aux méthodes et techniques de l’Inventaire général. L’accueil d’une stagiaire pendant trois mois au service régional de l’Inventaire de Haute–Normandie a été suivi par la mise en place d’un équipement informatique à Yérévan, puis par l’accueil et la formation de techniciens informaticiens et photographes arméniens. De retour dans leur pays ils ont commencé à remettre en place un service d’inventaire dont le programme comprend la création d’une base de données patrimoniales, le recensement de la ville de Yérévan, la numérisation d’images pour la publication d’un indicateur du patrimoine et la préparation de dossiers de protection au titre du patrimoine mondial. The Armenian heritage comprises both archaeological remains of towns destroyed by never–ending wars and a number of old churches from the eleventh and twelfth centuries. Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, was founded three thousand years ago and is one of Europe’s oldest capitals. From 1925 it has developed according to an ambitious urban planning project. After the major political upheavals of 1991, a special ministry was created to look after the architectural and movable heritage of the country and to promote the Armenian national identity. A mission in Yerevan was organised by the French Heritage Direction in 1993, subsequently enabling two Armenian civil servants, a heritage curator and a technician, to work in France in 1994 and 1997. They worked in collaboration with the Regional service for cultural affairs in the Haute–Normandie region, which is developing its cultural co–operation with Armenia.
 International Journal of Innovative Research in Science, Engineering and Technology , 2013, Abstract: Over the years rocker arms have been optimized in its design and material for better performance. Durability, toughness, high dimension stability, wear resistance, strength and cost of materials as well as economic factors are the reasons for optimization of rocker arm. This paper reviews the various types of rocker arms, based on published sources from the last 40 years in order to understand rocker arm for its problem identification and further optimization. This paper present what rocker arm is, where it is used and why it is used, History related to rocker arm and it working is described. Various types of rocker arm used in vehicles and different materials used for making rocker arm are studied in this paper. Reasons for Failure of rocker arm are also discussed in this paper.
 J.L. Helberg In die Skriflig , 2000, DOI: 10.4102/ids.v34i2.595 Abstract: Amos on the offices and the cult: the meaning for us today In this article Amos’ attitude towards the offices of king, priest and prophet is explored against the background of the rest of the Old Testament. The conclusion arrived at is that the institutions/offices/ services should be instrumental in enabling people to function according to their individuality and as beings created in the image of God: beings created to be free and responsible. Amos does not call for the abolishment of the offices, but these offices are, however, shaken to their very foundations by Amos’ prophecies. The intended result of Amos’ words is that office bearers should realise that God called them personally; they have not merely been called institutionally. Office bearers should thus radically reform and adjust their approach. Faith should be God-centred and should have a heart for the material and spiritual needs of people, including the needs of the members within the own circle of believers, as well as that of others. In conclusion, some relevant aspects within the Reformed Churches in South Africa are brought to the fore.
