Ar tebeaktualus ir ar tebemoteri kas moter ra ymas“ | Old and New Ways of Thinking about Women’s Writing  [PDF]
Egl? Ka?kut?
Literatura , 2005,
Abstract: The article is a speculation on whether the category of women’s writing continues to be applicable and/or indeed operative. It is argued that the effectiveness of women’s writing lies in identifiable trends, mutual influences and its particular heritage. A brief historical outline of women’s writing and criticism defines feminist literature as articulated by feminist criticism, whereas women’s writing is seen as a broad field of literary studies hardly restricted by any framework of interpretations. Women’s writing is said to be a part of and active participant in the literary process as a whole, and as such offers particular explorations in literature that have been overlooked, ventures into new ways of treating common topics, notably identity. Through the analysis of examples from contemporary French and British women’s prose, the article claims that although complex and ambiguous, the category of women’s writing remains a valuable lens through which to look at literary narratives written by women.

Boitor, B.,Br?tucu, G.,Bo?cor, D.,T?lp?u, A.
Bulletin of the Transilvania University of Brasov. Series V : Economic Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: New ways of advertising are having a significant impact on the mix of marketing not only for big companies, but also for non-profit companies and for public persons and politicians. The new term netvertising has appeared and it’s having a significant impact on the marketing strategy of different companies. If the traditional media is still used to transmit the message of a company, the internet and the new ways of advertising are used more and more to promote the image of a company, to promote the products or services not only to the young segment of consumers, but also to the segment of companies and others.
New Ways to Solve the Schroedinger Equation  [PDF]
R. Friedberg,T. D. Lee
Physics , 2004, DOI: 10.1016/j.aop.2004.08.002
Abstract: We discuss a new approach to solve the low lying states of the Schroedinger equation. For a fairly large class of problems, this new approach leads to convergent iterative solutions, in contrast to perturbative series expansions. These convergent solutions include the long standing difficult problem of a quartic potential with either symmetric or asymmetric minima.
New measures for evaluating creativity in scientific publications  [PDF]

Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: The goal of our research is to understand how ideas propagate, combine and are created in large social networks. In this work, we look at a sample of relevant scientific publications in the area of high-frequency analog circuit design and their citation distribution. A novel aspect of our work is the way in which we categorize citations based on the reason and place of it in a publication. We created seven citation categories from general domain references, references to specific methods used in the same domain problem, references to an analysis method, references for experimental comparison and so on. This added information allows us to define two new measures to characterize the creativity (novelty and usefulness) of a publication based on its pattern of citations clustered by reason, place and citing scientific group. We analyzed 30 publications in relevant journals since 2000 and their about 300 citations, all in the area of high-frequency analog circuit design. We observed that the number of citations a publication receives from different scientific groups matches a Levy type distribution: with a large number of groups citing a publication relatively few times, and a very small number of groups citing a publication a large number of times. We looked at the motifs a publication is cited differently by different scientific groups.
New ways of visualization in laparoscopic surgery  [cached]

Videosurgery and Other Miniinvasive Techniques , 2010,
Abstract: Scientific achievements enabled tremendous progress of surgical minimally invasive methods in the 20th century.Laparoscopy and endoscopy became everyday diagnostic and therapeutic tools of modern medicine. Despite itsirrefutable opportunities and advantages, classical minimally invasive surgery still has substantial limitations. Theseinclude: two-dimensional visualization without depth, a small field of view, and the necessity of precise hand-eyecoordination. That is why pressure is placed on manufacturers of endoscopic devices to surmount these technicalobstacles. To write this paper we searched databases for articles on new means of visualization in laparoscopicsurgery. We discuss augmented reality, three-dimensional vision and image-guided surgery.

Knji?nica : Revija za Podro?je Bibliotekarstva in Informacijske Znanosti , 2008,
Abstract: The paper describes the new web service SVAROG – system for safe archiving of electronic publications – which has been created at the National and University Library in the second half of 2007. This service provides the deposit of digital material. It is intended for publishers and others who should supply the legal deposit copies of electronic publications, or to forward the statement on the conditions of use and access to electronic material. It also serves to communicate the information on new publications. Likewise, the service is designed for other content providers, including libraries and other institutions in the fields of culture, science and education, to supply the digitized material of the physical originals. In addition, the web system facilitates NUK to confirm the receipt by sending a notice to the submitter.
New ways of scientific publishing and accessing human knowledge inspired by transdisciplinary approaches  [PDF]
I. C. Gebeshuber,B. Y Majlis
Computer Science , 2010,
Abstract: Inspired by interdisciplinary work touching biology and microtribology, the authors propose a new, dynamic way of publishing research results, the establishment of a tree of knowledge and the localisation of scientific articles on this tree. 'Technomimetics' is proposed as a new method of knowledge management in science and technology: it shall help find and organise information in an era of over-information. Such ways of presenting and managing research results would be accessible by people with different kinds of backgrounds and levels of education, and allow for full use of the ever- increasing number of scientific and technical publications. This approach would dramatically change and revolutionize the way we are doing science, and contribute to overcoming the three gaps between the world of ideas, inventors, innovators and investors as introduced by Gebeshuber, Gruber and Drack in 2009 for accelerated scientific and technological breakthroughs to improve the human condition. Inspiration for the development of above methods was the fact that - generally - tribologists and biologists do not see many overlaps of their professions. However, both deal with materials, structures and processes. Tribology is omnipresent in biology and many biological systems have impressive tribological properties. Tribologists can therefore get valuable input and inspiration from living systems. The aim of biomimetics is knowledge transfer from biology to technology and successful biomimetics in tribology needs collaboration between biologists and tribologists. Literature search shows that the number of papers regarding biotribology is steadily increasing. However, at the moment, most scientific papers of the other respective field are hard to access and hard to understand, in terms of concepts and specific wording.
LONELINESS OF OLD PEOPLE IN POLAND – SALE, SYMPTOMS AND WAYS OF SOLVING PROBLEM  [PDF]

Abstract: The text discusses results of a research conducted on behalf of ‘I-Woman’ Foundation (Fundacja Ja Kobieta) on the elderly people loneliness phenomenon. The aim of the research was to determine the scale of said phenomenon and partially of social exclusion of the elderly, factors in uencing the probability of the problem’s occurrence as well as counter-measures possible to apply on both personal and institutional level. The initial phase of the research consisted of 11 individual in-depth interviews (IDI). The most important part of the project involved quantitative research carried out on a nationwide, random, representative group of a thousand 65 years-old-people. This research was done through CATI interviews. The results were discussed during two focus group interviews (FGI). The aim of the interviews was to check the point of view of potential carers and people ghting with elderly people’s loneliness. Almost 20% of the Polish elderly can be considered lonely – they declare that often (10%) or always (7%) feel lonely. Almost half of the surveyed (47%) admitted never feeling lonely. The factors in uencing the feeling of loneliness include: gender, age, education, marital status, source of income, place of living. Factors that increase the level of loneliness include lack of self-reliance and no possibilities of getting support in dealing with one’sdif cult situation. Family and relatives are the key factors in ghting with social exclusion. Friends and acquaintances are also important since they are often the only support of an elderly person. Local social policy should create suitable conditions for social integration of the elderly into the local community and limiting architectural barriers is one of the important elements of such a process. The fate of non self-reliant people depends on institutional solutions.
Landscape Ways Of Intervention Used In Reconversion Of Disused Old Defense Structures  [cached]

Science – Future of Lithuania , 2012,
Abstract: Because of the current world mutations, national security provides large complexity and requires new designing solutions for: security challenges, military technology, strategies and tactics, merging of structures, methods, techniques and technologies concerning security challenges, need for responding to social constraints (democratic rights, law of war), and attempts to surpass the opponent / enemy / partner, etc. So, in order to reconvert abandoned military areas, which were previously restricted (restricted areas) but currently passing transformation processes, we must consider the intervention both within and outside of a well-defined system. Therefore, we have to work inside and outside of the military system, as well as on the boundaries of hard-shaped structures. Camouflage is not only instructive for military practitioners’ intent on developing their skills, but also is interesting and entertaining means for much wider audience. Two case studies used as examples reveal the possibility that camouflage pattern concept may offer the effects that prove the chance of using camouflage as a scientific, designing and planning landscape tool. Results of the case studies indicate the importance and possibility of intervention integrated into the landscape by combining military means and elements of urban planning, and regulation specific to these types of functions.
