Indian Journal of Pathology and Microbiology , 2008,
Abstract: Fraser syndrome or cryptophthalmos is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by major features such as cryptophthalmos, syndactyly and abnormal genitalia. The diagnosis of this syndrome can be made on clinical examination and perinatal autopsy. We present the autopsy findings of a rare case of Fraser syndrome in a male infant.

Abstract: Fraser Syndrome is a rare disorder with only a few cases having been described in Indian literature. We report here a case of a patient aged 16 yr present with primary amenorrhea which is a very unusual mode of presentation. Multiple associated anomalies were present including those of eyelids, eyebrow, face, fingers and genitalia. Chromosome analysis revealed a normal female karyotype. Pituitary gonadotropins were within normal range.
Detection and Separation of Speech Event Using Audio and Video Information Fusion and Its Application to Robust Speech Interface  [cached]

EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing , 2004, DOI: 10.1155/s1687617204402303
Abstract: A method of detecting speech events in a multiple-sound-source condition using audio and video information is proposed. For detecting speech events, sound localization using a microphone array and human tracking by stereo vision is combined by a Bayesian network. From the inference results of the Bayesian network, information on the time and location of speech events can be known. The information on the detected speech events is then utilized in the robust speech interface. A maximum likelihood adaptive beamformer is employed as a preprocessor of the speech recognizer to separate the speech signal from environmental noise. The coefficients of the beamformer are kept updated based on the information of the speech events. The information on the speech events is also used by the speech recognizer for extracting the speech segment.
Symbolic legacies of slavery in Guyana
Alvin O. Thompson
New West Indian Guide , 2008,
Abstract: Focusses on the commemoration and symbolic functions of the slavery past in the Americas, with a particular focus on Guyana. Author explains that while symbolic representations of the legacies of slavery increased in the Americas since the 1960s, the nationalist government under Forbes Burnham since 1970 went further in using the slavery past as its ideological foundation. He discusses how this relates to Guyana's history and ethnic development of 2 main, often opposed groups of African- and Indian-descended groups, calling on their respective slavery or indenture past in emphasizing their national significance. He further describes slavery-related symbolic representations promoted under Burnham, specifically the 1763 slave revolt led by Cuffy, presented as first anticolonial rebellion aimed at liberation, and as a precursor to the PNC government, and other slave rebellions and rebels, such as led by Damon in 1834. He points out how some Indian-Guyanese found that Indian heroes were sidelined in relation to these. Author then describes how the annual commemoration of Emancipation Day continues to refer to the martyrdom of these slave rebels, along with other discursive connections, such as regarding reparations. He also pays attention to the activities of nongovernmental organizations in Guyana up to the present in commemorating the slavery past, often with broader African diaspora connections.
Fraser′s syndrome.  [cached]

Journal of Postgraduate Medicine , 1992,
Abstract: A full term female baby at birth showed the features of Fraser′s syndrome viz. upper lid coloboma, cryptophthalmos, abnormal groove over temporal region, dysmorphic facies, hypospadias and bilateral syndactyly. On ultrasound examination of the abdomen and left orbit, maldeveloped kidney and eyeball were found. Other siblings were not affected. The child died at the age of 3 months.
Enlightenment: The crisis and transformation of the concept  [PDF]
Savi? Mile
Filozofija i Dru?tvo , 2006, DOI: 10.2298/fid0630009s
Abstract: The subject of the paper is the crisis of the concept of enlightenment examined at three levels: polemic-rhetorical, historical-descriptive, and philosophical-normative. The author argues that the inconsistency of substantive definitions of enlightenment does not necessarily result in rejection of this concept but rather in its continuous transformation. By way of conclusion, the author stresses that the normative revival of the concept of enlightenment may be rendered more viable by making a distinction between Enlightenment, as a particular historical period and intellectual legacy, and enlightenment, as a continuous process. He argues that the former is not the only possible form of the latter, but just one of its historical manifestations and one among many agents in the complex and uncertain history of modern process of enlightening.
Enlightenment and Individuation
Gabriel Rossouw, Brendon Stewart
Indo-Pacific Journal of Phenomenology , 2005,
Abstract: It is important for psychology - as a discipline of thought about the nature of psyche - and for psychotherapy, as its practice of understanding, to draw a distinction between neurotic and authentic suffering if it aims to assist a person to become an indivisible being. A difficulty with mainstream psychology is the conviction that psyche begins and ends in the realm of Reason as this conviction tends to establish a reality of permanence, absolutes and substance, and hence consequently, colludes with the ‘ten thousand things’ of neurotic suffering. When reason sets the rules of reality, it is argued, a deep sense of alienation and meaninglessness takes root. A psychology stuck in this realm is unable to attend to authentic human suffering, which is the reconciliation and synthesis of opposites in human nature. In the dichotomy of subject and object, and unconscious and conscious, a psychology of the reason unwittingly identifies with and acts out that which it rejects as inferior. It thus suffers from the very condition it sets out to alleviate. The concepts of enlightenment and individuation on the other hand draw a clear distinction between neurotic and authentic suffering. They conceive of a reality in which subject and object are one, so providing support to one suffering authentically so as to remain true to oneself and thus to become an indivisible being.

Open Journal of Ophthalmology (OJOph) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ojoph.2011.11001
Abstract: Fraser syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive multisystem disorder with a reported incidence of 0.043 per 10,000 live born infants and 1.1 in 10,000 stillbirths[1]. The condition is characterised by cryptophthalmos, cutaneous syndactyly, laryngeal and genitourinary malformations, craniofacial dysmorphism, orofacial clefting, musculoskeletal anomalies and mental retardation. The diagnosis can be made on prenatal scans, post natal clinical examination or on autopsy findings. We present a case of Fraser syndrome and review of the ocular manifestations of this condition.
Fraser Syndrome and Cryptophthalmos; A Case Report
N Khalesi,F Salehi,A Mohamadi Poor
Iranian Journal of Pediatrics , 2006,
Abstract: Objective: Fraser syndrome is characterised by cryptophthalmos, cutaneous syndactyly, malformations of the larynx and genitourinary tract, craniofacial dysmorphism, orofacial clefting, mental retardation, and musculoskeletal anomalies. The prevalence of FS was previously estimated to be approximately 11 cases in 100.000 live births.The inheritance is autosomal recessive. This is the first report of this syndrome in Iran. Case presentation: We present a 2 days old girl neonate with the chief complaint of unilateral cryptophthalmos (left side) and Fraser syndrome. The mains symptoms and signs of this patients were low set ears, abdominal distention and vomiting, naries closure, upper extremity, syndactyly and rectovestibular fistula. Sonography and ecchocardiography was done and a single right kidney in right upper quadrant and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) were detected. The patient was operated with under total corrected anoplasty and was discharged with a good general condition. Conclusion: Fraser syndrome is a rare syndrome, but it must be suggested in craniofacial malformation especially cryptophthalmos.
