Mapping and characterising children’s daily mobility in urban residential areas in Turku, Finland  [cached]
Nora Charlotta Fagerholm,Anna Broberg
Fennia : International Journal of Geography , 2011,
Abstract: Independent mobility in a local environment is crucial for a child’s development and physical activity, contributing to overall health and well-being. This methodological article describes a study capturing children’s daily mobility in two residential areas in Turku, southwestern Finland, by combining the methods of GPS tracking, mobility diaries, interviews and questionnaires. Geographical positioning data enables analysis of spatial characteristics of children’s mobility, e.g. the comparison to land use structure and analysis of the travel speed, while the qualitative data sets reveal how, why and with whom the travel was realised and the level of children’s independence in mobility.The results show that children’s mobility is clustered around homes and schools and evident gender differences exist; boys travel longer distances and at higher speeds than girls. The children in Turku are relatively independent and have extensive mobility licenses. However, the travel undertaken to practise hobbies or participate in organised leisure activities is realised in adult company and significantly dominated by car transportation. The results strengthen the observation that Finnish children are allowed to travel rather independently and to explore the surrounding environment without adult company, using active forms of transportation. The significant level of independence is a consequence of the high perception of safety, both from the children and the parents in the residential areas. The described mixed methods approach, combining objective measurement of actual mobility with qualitative data sets, is applicable for further mobility studies and the results offer implications for planning child-friendly urban environments.
Palaeoproterozoic mafic and intermediate metavolcanic rocks in the Turku area, SW Finland  [PDF]

Bulletin of the Geological Society of Finland , 2007,
Abstract: Twenty two samples were analysed from mafic and intermediate volcanic rocks from the Turku area along ~60 km long north-south geotraverse. Geographically and lithologically the samples were divided into the Pargas, Turku and Vahto groups. The Pargas and Turku groups consist of mafic units and intercalations within migmatitic gneisses. Their geochemical compositions are very similar. In average, they show quite flat REE curves and the multielement diagrams show moderate LILE enrichments, minor negative Ta-Nb anomalies and straight HFSE curves. We infer these as transitional between MORB and VAB. The Vahtogroup consists of thicker volcanic sequences in connection with synorogenic plutonic rocks. The data show enriched LREEs, LILEs, Th and P combined with negative Ta-Nb anomalies, i.e. the Vahto group shows subduction component. We interpret that the Vahto volcanicrocks belong to the H me belt. The geochemical data indicate that the Pargas and Turku groups were formed in extensional, possibly back-arc or intra-arc setting while the Vahto group was formed at continental volcanic arc.

Temporary geographies of the city: the experienced spaces of asylum seekers in the City of Turku, Finland  [cached]

Fennia : International Journal of Geography , 2010,
Abstract: Temporarity has a significant role in today’s urban spaces and peoples’ experiences of them. The city is often understood through stable material structures, while less attention is paid to such aspects of urban space that are there only for a limited time such as markets, events, manifestations and construction sites, for instance. Experiences of momentarity may be related to these kinds of elements of the city, but equally to personal feelings of not belonging to the city. In this paper we discuss, firstly, temporary geographies and their importance in today’s urban studies. Debates on relational spaces and moving geographies have directed attention towards the temporary aspects of urban spaces. Temporarity itself has mostly been discussed in relation to urban planning while less attention has been paid to other aspects of everyday life. Secondly, the theoretical aspects of temporary geographies in this paper will be illustrated with empirical material collected among young asylum seekers in the City of Turku in Finland in 2008–2009. The asylum seekers were interviewed and they kept photo diaries about their urban experiences. The material tells about the feelings of momentarity in urban space as the asylum seekers’ uses of the city were coloured by uncertainty while they were waiting for the decision about permission to stay in the country.

Teoría de Conflictos de Johan Galtung  [cached]
Percy Calderón Concha
Revista de Paz y Conflictos , 2009,
Abstract: El presente trabajo recoge la investigación realizada en torno a la teoría de conflictos del sociólogo y matemático noruego Johan Galtung. Muchos teóricos afirman que la obra de Galtung representa de por sí sola el 50% de los estudios para la paz. Sus importantes aportes para una epistemología de la paz lo colocan como el punto de referencia más importante en este nuevo campo del conocimiento.Nos acercamos analítica y críticamente a su teoría de conflictos, pero sin prescindir de otros temas a los que necesariamente esta vinculado en este gran corpus teórico de su producción. Así, mientras escudri amos en las lógicas racionales que están detrás de la teoría de conflictos, este nos va sirviendo al mismo tiempo de clave de lectura de la teoría de la paz, de la violencia y del desarrollo.
Van staatsgezind tot liberaal. De beeldvorming over Johan de Witt in de revolutietijd (1757-1840)  [cached]
J. de Haan
BMGN : Low Countries Historical Review , 2005,
Abstract: From republican to liberal. The image of Johan de Witt during the years of revolution (1757-1840) In the fateful year of 1672, Johan and Cornelis de Witt were brutally murdered by an angry mob in The Hague that had sympathies with the House of Orange. The question is raised: was it the case, one hundred years later in the eighteenth century, that the underlying political motive behind the death of the de Witt brothers led to them being used by a disparate group of political admirers, from republicans to patriots and Bataven, in their own struggle against the ancien régime and stadholder of the time? The answer is simple but clear: no it wasn’t. The republicans defended Johan de Witt against orangeist attacks, but the patriots in the late 1780s were unimpressed with the Grand Pensionary and his brother because of their aristocratic background. During the French occupation of the Netherlands opinions about the de Witt brothers changed and they were suddenly held in great esteem by both patriots and liberals alike. The massacres committed by ordinary citizens during the revolution in France greatly influenced public opinion about Johan and Cornelis. From that time onwards, they were regarded as victims of the angry masses and their fate came to symbolise the dangers of direct democracy.
Callisto III e la Cometa di Halley: la ricerca di Johan Stein SJ tra leggenda e storia  [PDF]
Costantino Sigismondi
Physics , 2014,
Abstract: The Dutch Jesuit astronomer Johan Stein published in 1909 a text about the legend on a papal bull of Pope Callixtus III against the comet of 1456. This comet happened to be the Halley's one. The original documents, either chronicles and observations, and coeval testimonies are deeply investigated by Stein and the falsity of that legend is clearly demonstrated. In the occasion of the 200 years of the restoration of the Societas Jesu made in 1814 by Pope Pius VII an Italian edition of the full text of Johan Stein is here presented.
"S t mig ikke paa en haardere pr ve!" Johan Kulstads beretning fra Svalbard 1853
Nils Magne Knutsen
Nordlit : Tidsskrift i litteratur og kultur , 2012,
Abstract: In his book from 1865 Johan Kulstad tells the story of a hunting expedition to Spitzbergen in 1853. The mother ship disappears, and in desperation Kulstad and his six men starts rowing their small hunting boat back to Norway. After six days of incredible suffering, they are rescued by a Danish ship a few miles off the coast of Finnmark. After outlining the main sides of this story, the article comments briefly on the way Kulstad tells his story: There is a mixture of pre-realistic and naturalistic narrative, there is a mixture of genres, and the text is without the heroism which is so prevalent in later Arctic narrative. Interesting detail: The way a Sami member of the expedition is portrayed
