Indian Streams Research Journal , 2012,
Abstract: The paper attempts to highlight the deep-rooted caste system especially the observance of untouchability and the role played by the Nayanmars and Alvrs to remove the practice of untouchability and their struggle for the social acceptance of the untouchables in the Tamil society and their warning to admit the subaltern untouchables in to the brahmanical temples. A number of Nayanmars and Alvars belonged to the subaltern untouchables. Appar, Sambandar , Sundarar and Manikavasakar strongly condemned the practice of untouchablity and they popularized the Bakthi cult in Tamil Country They allowed the untouchables in orthodox centres and into the temples. Their songs stood for the practice of equality among the human beings.
Dualistic Structures on Twisted Product Manifolds  [PDF]
Abdoul Salam Diallo,Leonard Todjihounde
Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: In this paper, we show that the projection of a dualistic structure defined on a twisted product manifold induces dualistic structures on the base and the fiber manifolds, and conversely. Then under some conditions on the Ricci curvature and the Weyl conformal tensor we characterize dually flat structures on twisted product manifolds.
Hello Music Lady: Have You Brought A New Instrument Today? A Music Therapy Group for Children of Families in the UK Armed Forces.  [cached]
Becky White
Voices: A World Forum for Music Therapy , 2009,
Abstract: The paper describes a music therapy group that took place in a UK primary school on an armed forces base. The school described is the only state school in the UK for families in the armed forces. The families staying on the base are in transition for reasons such as, family break-up, domestic problems, leaving the forces, emergency evacuation from overseas, and transition between postings. This paper traces how the group evolved over eleven months. It focuses on the practical considerations required when setting up a music therapy group. It describes the thought processes I went through in doing this work, and looks at how the work was integrated into the school. It considers the setting up of the group, providing a framework, working with staff, structuring the sessions, and how the group ended.
“Today There Are No Indigenous People” in Chile?: Connecting the Mapuche Struggle to Anti-Neoliberal Mobilizations in South America “Hoy en día no hay pueblos indígenas” en Chile?: Conectando la lucha Mapuche con las movilizaciones anti-neoliberales en Sudamérica
Kevin Funk
Journal of Politics in Latin America , 2012,
Abstract: The books under review all deal with the same fundamental phenomenon: mobilization against neoliberal policies by South American indigenous groups. These works fall into two groups: those that focus on the Mapuche struggle in Chile, and those that consider anti-neoliberal indigenous mobilization in the region more broadly. Just as literature in the former group fails to draw any linkages between the Mapuche and other South American indigenous struggles, the latter body of literature does not engage with Chile as a case worthy of consideration. This essay delineates the arguments made by scholars from both groups and argues that they must be brought into dialogue with one another in order to develop both a more holistic conceptualization of the Mapuche struggle in Chile and a more complete understanding of indigenous mobilization in the region. Further empirical work is needed on how Mapuche mobilization relates to other indigenous, anti-neoliberal mobilizations in South America. Los libros discutidos en este ensayo tratan del mismo problema fundamental: la movilización contra las políticas neoliberales por los grupos indígenas en Sudamérica. Estas obras se dividen en dos grupos: los que se enfocan en la lucha de los Mapuche en Chile, y los que consideran la movilización anti-neoliberal de los indígenas más ampliamente. Tal como la literatura en el primer grupo no vincula la lucha Mapuche con otras luchas indígenas en Sudamérica, los del segundo grupo no contemplan el caso chileno. Este ensayo delinea los argumentos hechos por ambos grupos, y sostiene que tiene que haber un diálogo entre sí para poder desarrollar una conceptualización más holística de la lucha de los Mapuche en Chile, y una comprensión más completa de la movilización indígena en la región. Se requieren más investigaciones empíricas acerca de cómo la movilización Mapuche se relaciona con otras movilizaciones indígenas y anti-neoliberales en Sudamérica.
Dualistic water cycle pattern and its evolution in Haihe River basin

Abstract: The Haihe River basin is widely recognized as an area in China which is most severely affected by human activities. The water resources utilization and recycling in the basin is very complex, and the characteristic of the dualistic water cycle is becoming more and more prominent. The ever-growing demand of water for modern industry and domestic life nearly dries up all the natural runoff. Meanwhile, industrial, agricultural and domestic wastewater discharges cause severe deterioration in water quality. Consequently, many of water courses are either dried out or being heavily polluted. Modern water resources management can no longer rely on the “monitoring-rehabilitation” model which was originally developed based on the natural water cycle. This paper analyzes the critical characteristics, water balance, and evolution of water flux process based on the theory of dualistic water cycle. Referring to the water cycle in the Haihe River basin, a schematic diagram was drawn to describe the dualistic water cycle pattern. Ten different parameters affecting mainly the evolution of water flux in the “dualistic water cycle” are closely examined using the newly-collected data. As a result, this paper proposes several water management and control strategies to achieve healthy water status for the Haihe River basin.
Assyrians in The National Struggle Period
Deniz Bayburt
Journal of Gazi Academic View , 2010,
Abstract: The Assyrians that is one of the oldest people of the Mesopotamia has been divided into various groups because of the difference of opinion about the nature of Jesus. While the Nestorians that is one of these groups were living in peace without interfering their beliefs, religious ceremonies, and life styles by Ottoman Empire under its sovereignty, they revolted against Ottoman Empire under the influence of western states during the World War I. They also involved in hostile acts during the national struggle. Assyrians and Nestorians situation in the National Struggle are tried to be expreesed in this article
A Changed Terrain for Popular Struggle
Alexander R. Magno
Kasarinlan : Philippine Journal of Third World Studies , 1993,
Abstract: There are numerous debates over the appropriate strategy now going on among the increasingly marginalized movements of the Filipino Left. The combined effects of political insignificance and deep internal disagreements are expressed in the increasing parochialization of left-wing discourse. Much passion has been invested in the fine doctrinal disagreements without addressing the contours of the larger reality - the huge structural, demographic, technological, and institutional changes sweeping the field of radical politics itself. As left wing forces become more preoccupied with disagreeing with each other, they lose touch of the larger constituencies and the broad social forces emerging in Philippine society today. More than the matter of strategy that preoccupies many Left-wing activists in the Philippines today, the crucial matter that ought to be addressed concerns the articulation of a progressive, credible social agenda for the future. This essay does not attempt to reach a resolution of the questions pertaining to the aforementioned that progressive and democratic movements in the Philippines and the rest of Southeast Asia must collectively deal with. At best, it attempts to construct these questions more adequately.
Newton-Fermi versus Fermi-Planck compactification: superunification by scaling electrical with earth-bound gravitational forces  [PDF]
G. Van Hooydonk
Physics , 1999,
Abstract: Absolute scaling electrical with gravitational forces has remained unsuccessful until today. Using recent results on scaling spectroscopic constants, we now scale the internal electrical potential of a two particle system by its gravitational potential at the surface of the earth. This relative scaling is based upon classical equilibrium conditions. Compactifying earth-bound gravitaion (the Newton-scale) to the Fermi-scale in particle interacions is of the same order as going down from the latter to the Plank-scale. The unification scale factor for gravitational and electromagnetic forces is of the order of 2pi. The unification scale factor for two vibrating particles is the reciprocal of Sommerfeld's fine structure constant (deviation < 0.2 %)and gravitational forces are weak electromagnetic forces. The earth-bound bravitational energy asymptote is the natural unit for the relativistic fine structure and the magnetic spin-orbit interaction in atoms. Maybe, in the Standard Model and beyond, one has been looking in the wrong direction for compactification to attempt superunification.
Historical tension between the holistic and dualistic view of man in the church
Herm Zandman
In die Skriflig , 2012, DOI: 10.4102/ids.v46i1.40
Abstract: Dualism has continually plagued the Church, especially from the time when Greek philosophers articulated the dualistic view of man in an excellent, scholarly way. Even when the Reformers militated against this phenomenon theologically, it still dominated life in general and Christian living in particular. This article considered the historical tension between the holistic and dualistic view of man in the church. It strove to do this by setting forth certain examples from history, showing how the Church wrestled with this tension. Furthermore, the author attempted to point out in which way the dualistic view of man was damaging to godly living, and why a holistic view of man was conducive to life under God in an ethically meaningful manner. Die historiese spanning tussen die holistiese en dualistiese beeld van die mens in die kerk. Dualisme het die Kerk nog altyd beinvloed, veral sedert die era toe Griekse filosowe die dualistiese siening van die mens op ‘n uitstekende akademiese wyse bekendgestel het. Selfs toe die Reformeerders teologies te velde getrek het teen hierdie fenomeen, het dit die lewe in die algemeen en die Christelike lewe in die besonder aangetas. Hierdie artikel oorweeg die historiese spanning tussen die holistiese en dualistiese sienings in die kerk. Sekere voorbeelde uit die geskiedenis sal voorgehou word ter illustrasie van hoe die Kerk met hierdie spanning geworstel het. Die outeur sal verder poog om aan te toon hoe die dualistiese siening van die mens skadelik is vir ‘n goddelike lewe, en waarom ‘n holistiese siening van die mens bevorderlik is vir ‘n eties betekenisvolle lewe onder God.
The Continuing Struggle for Philippine Sovereignty: A New Turn  [cached]
Daniel Boone Schirmer
Kasarinlan : Philippine Journal of Third World Studies , 1997,
Abstract: The post-EDSA era has witnessed a heightened struggle for Philippine sovereignty. Nothing is more indicative of this turning point than the rejection by the Philippine Senate of the RP-US base treaty in 1991 in dramatic fashion. Despite this historic gain, the struggle continues as the United States insists on having military presence in Philippine soil. In 1992, an access agreement was entered into by the U.S. Navy's Pacific High Command and the Philippine military, giving the U.S. Armed Forces access to Philippine ports, airfields and military installations. It was at this juncture that public opposition to such access policy gained momentum. Evidently rot contented, the United States in November 1994 sought to forge an Acquisition and Cross-Servicing Agreement (ACSA) but only to face more indignant protest from the Philippine Congress, the press, anti-bases groups and other sectors. From their experience over the past decade in their crusade against eternal aggression, tie Filipino people have learned many lessons and undoubtedly translated them into potent actions.
