The Organization Man Still Matters: Sinclair Lewis's Babbitt  [cached]
Hartig, Marcel
COPAS : Current Objectives of Postgraduate American Studies , 2008,
Abstract: Ever since its publication Sinclair Lewis’s Babbitt (1922) has been a thorn in the side of many businessmen and organizations. Debates ranging from its literary merit to its content caused a stir during the ‘Roaring Twenties.’ However, the novel could also be read as a starting point in a series of writings about the evolution of modern business and businessmen. The paper argues that Babbitt traces developments of the contemporary organization man and his estrangement from his personal culture due to a boosting consumer culture. Lewis’s Babbitt thus is an early predecessor of sociologist William H. Whyte’s organization man and of the yuppie of the 1980s.
On the Lewis-Riesenfeld (Dodonov-Man'ko) invariant method  [PDF]
Julio Guerrero,Francisco F. López-Ruiz
Physics , 2015,
Abstract: We revise the Lewis-Riesenfeld invariant method for solving the quantum time-dependent harmonic oscillator in light of the Quantum Arnold Transformation previously introduced and its recent generalization to the Quantum Arnold-Ermakov-Pinney Transformation. We prove that both methods are equivalent and show the advantages of the Quantum Arnold-Ermakov-Pinney transformation over the Lewis-Riesenfeld invariant method. We show that, in the quantum time-dependent and damped harmonic oscillator, the invariant proposed by Dodonov & Man'ko is more suitable and provide some examples to illustrate it, focusing on the damped case.

Abstract: man with sudden loss of vision and ptosis Case report (4758) Total Article Views Authors: Saroj Gupta Published Date March 2010 Volume 2010:2 Pages 25 - 27 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/OPTO.S9204 Saroj Gupta Department of Ophthalmology, People’s College of Medical Sciences and Research Center, Bhopal, MP, India Abstract: A 49-year-old gentleman presented in our emergency department with sudden loss of vision and ptosis in right eye. He had type 1 diabetes mellitus for 10 years. His vision was reduced to perception of light and there was total ophthalmoplegia on right side. On investigating, signs of fungal rhinosinusitis were noted along with inflammation at orbital apex. The patient was treated with intravenous amphotericin B. Surgical debridement of sinuses was also done. The fungal hyphae were identified as Rizopus microsporum. The patient showed improvement in ocular signs at six weeks follow-up.

Vision of Global Harmony in Kamala Markandya's The Nowhere Man
SOMVEER
Review of Research , 2012,
Abstract: As novelist, Kamala Markandaya looks at the East-West encounter with a sense of keen discernment and dispasionate objectivity. Cultural dualism forms the matrix of her vision. The way she juxtaposes two diverse cultures introduces us not only with her creative ability and aesthetic response to the different points of view, but also provides testimony of her cosmopolitan outlook. In The Nowhere Man, Markandaya presents the immigrants and the English with both their strengths and weaknesses, and demonstrates how they suffer when they give in to their weaknesses, and how they flourish when they come out with their strengths and feel for each other. The novelist suggests that senseless racial antagonism and global violence are detrimental to the entire humanity. The cordial relationship between Mr. Srinivas and Mrs. Pikering suggests that global harmony can be achieved through mutual respect, appreciation, responsibility, commitment, trust, tolerance and understanding, not through ascendancy and aggression.
Addendum to Research MMMCV; A Man/Microbio/Megabio/Computer Vision  [PDF]
Philip B. Alipour
Computer Science , 2007,
Abstract: In October 2007, a Research Proposal for the University of Sydney, Australia, the author suggested that biovie-physical phenomenon as `electrodynamic dependant biological vision', is governed by relativistic quantum laws and biovision. The phenomenon on the basis of `biovielectroluminescence', satisfies man/microbio/megabio/computer vision (MMMCV), as a robust candidate for physical and visual sciences. The general aim of this addendum is to present a refined text of Sections 1-3 of that proposal and highlighting the contents of its Appendix in form of a `Mechanisms' Section. We then briefly remind in an article aimed for December 2007, by appending two more equations into Section 3, a theoretical II-time scenario as a time model well-proposed for the phenomenon. The time model within the core of the proposal, plays a significant role in emphasizing the principle points on Objectives no. 1-8, Sub-hypothesis 3.1.2, mentioned in Article [arXiv:0710.0410]. It also expresses the time concept in terms of causing quantized energy f(|E|) of time |t|, emit in regard to shortening the probability of particle loci as predictable patterns of particle's un-occurred motion, a solution to Heisenberg's uncertainty principle (HUP) into a simplistic manner. We conclude that, practical frames via a time algorithm to this model, fixates such predictable patterns of motion of scenery bodies onto recordable observation points of a MMMCV system. It even suppresses/predicts superposition phenomena coming from a human subject and/or other bio-subjects for any decision making event, e.g., brainwave quantum patterns based on vision. Maintaining the existential probability of Riemann surfaces of II-time scenarios in the context of biovielectroluminescence, makes motion-prediction a possibility.

Mould In Optical Instruments
Rod D Watkins
Community Eye Health Journal , 2003,
Abstract: Mould can damage optical instruments beyond repair within only a few weeks. There is a good deal of information available on the treatment of mould in buildings, because common respiratory problems and allergic reactions can be caused by mould. Knowledge is also available in the field of conservation of books and fine art because of the high cost of mould damage. However, very little information is available on mould in optical instruments and the management of mould is often ignored by equipment manufacturers and users.
