Preaching as reframing of perspective  [cached]
J.H. Cilliers
In die Skriflig , 2010, DOI: 10.4102/ids.v44i1.138
Abstract: This article takes as point of departure the notion that preaching represents a form of reframing of perspective. Cognisance is taken of Calvin’s understanding of faith as perceiving, as well as Capps’ (1990) reintroduction of the idea of reframing. This is followed up by a brief look at Paul’s reframing of the concepts “foolishness” and “wisdom”, as well as an excursion into the world of art, particularly surrealism as possible homiletic colla-borator. Some implications are drawn for preaching, under the headings: the preacher, congregation, the Biblical text and God as reframer.

Abstract: ks associated with the use of morphine for analgesia: attitudes and perceptions amongst nursing students in French-speaking Switzerland Original Research (569) Total Article Views Authors: Verloo H, Cohen C, Borloz C, Mpinga EK, Chastonay P Published Date January 2013 Volume 2013:3 Pages 1 - 8 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/NRR.S39401 Received: 21 October 2012 Accepted: 14 December 2012 Published: 25 January 2013 Henk Verloo,1 Christine Cohen,1 Corinne Borloz,1 Emmanuel K Mpinga,2,3 Philippe Chastonay3,4 1University of Applied Sciences, Nursing, La Source, Lausanne, Switzerland; 2Swiss School of Public Health Plus, Zurich, Switzerland; 3Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine, 4Unit of Development and Research in Medical Education, Faculty of Medicine, University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland Aims: This paper reports on the attitudes and perceptions of risks associated with the use of morphine for analgesia among nursing students and explores the relationship between those attitudes and perceptions and sociodemographic data. Background: Attitudes and perception of risks regarding the use of morphine for analgesia amongst nurses remain problematic, thus potentially leading to important consequences regarding the quality of pain management. Methods: A cross-sectional survey among 557 nursing-students enrolled in the 3-year bachelor program was conducted in the French-speaking part of Switzerland from May to December 2010. The instrument's validity and internal reliability were tested before use. Twenty-two items evaluated attitudes and perception of risks when using morphine. Results: Attitudes and perception of risks regarding the use of morphine for analgesia are evolving significantly during the 3 years of education. Sociodemographic data have little influence, if any, on attitudes and perception of risks. Conclusion: The positive evolution of attitudes over the years of training pleads for the crucial role played by education regarding development of competency in pain management and nursing care.

Reef aquariofily: a hobby for everyone? How an adequate knowledge of Pterois volitans’ behavior and welfare can avoid risks and accidents  [PDF]
Alessio Arbuatti,Pia Lucidi
Aquaculture, Aquarium, Conservation & Legislation , 2010,
Abstract: Pterois volitans (Linnaeus, 1758) is one of the most appreciated fish in the common reef aquariology but, unfortunately, a potentially dangerous subject due to its venom glands, which cancause injuries and envenomations. This study relays on the recording of injuries in Italian hobbyists/caretakers/retailers, enabling us to evaluate the most dangerous steps during the management of the fish. By recording P. volitans behavior both in aquarium and in the wild, the authors postulate that prevention of injuries in aquariology must start from the knowledge of territorial and feeding behavior of this species, and stress the revision of Italian law in order to make sellers much more responsible about P. volitans management and welfare, as necessary protective measures for sellers, public and buyers.
Reframing the Conflict in Fiji: Economic and Transpersonal Frameworks for Peace
Harris Friedman
International Journal of Transpersonal Studies , 2004,
Abstract: Reframing is presented as a psychological technique applicable to facilitating change leading to conflict resolution and the achievement of peace. The current conflict in Fiji is discussed as a case study of one such application. Fijian problems have been commonly attributed to racial and ethnic divides that are not easily amenable to change. An intervention providing an alternativeunderstanding of these conflicts, namely that they are better seen as due to competing economic models, is described. The scientific transpersonal perspective is presented as another alternativeframework, seen as especially applicable to religious conflicts, which potentially provides an inclusive way to reconcile differences. It is concluded that reframing might be useful in a wide rangeof conflicts through providing integrative frameworks that change the level and content of divisive discourse.
Measurement of Welfare Losses Arising from Tax Restrictions on Trade and Foreign Investment Measurement of Welfare Losses Arising from Tax Restrictions on Trade and Foreign Investment
Alejandro Jadresic
Revista de Análisis Económico (RAE) , 1986,
Abstract: In this paper welfare measures are derived to represent the welfare gains and losses which result from tax restrictions on trade and foreign investment in a small country that produces n commodities and uses m factors. Analytical and graphical measures are flrst derived under the assumption that the stock of foreign owned factor is given. Similar measures are then obtained assuming that foreign investment is endogeneously determined. Finally, measures are derived to evaluate the benefits associated to tariffs and investment taxes when used as second best policy instruments.

What is Welfare?  [cached]
Bent Greve
Central European Journal of Public Policy , 2008,
Abstract: This article discusses the meaning of "welfare". It asks whether or not it is solely to be understood in monetary terms or whether it is necessary to include non-monetary aspects such as happiness. It asks what the social science understanding of welfare has to offer and what its implications are for the data which is needed to measure welfare—the measurement of welfare being dependant on our understanding of the concept. Furthermore, the article distinguishes between micro- and macro-level understandings of the concept and presents indicators of the two levels. Finally, a tentative ranking of 10 EU countries with regard to welfare is offered.
National Climate Observing System of Switzerland (GCOS Switzerland)
G. Seiz ,N. Foppa
Advances in Science and Research (ASR) , 2011, DOI: 10.5194/asr-6-95-2011
Abstract: In recent decades, the global observation of climate and climate change has become increasingly important. The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) established in 1992 addresses the entire climate system including physical, chemical and biological properties of atmosphere, ocean and land surface. This paper describes the GCOS implementation in Switzerland and highlights some major achievements over the last few years. The Swiss GCOS Office was established at the Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology MeteoSwiss in February 2006, to coordinate all climate-relevant measurements in Switzerland. The first-ever inventory of the country's long-term climatological data series and international data centres, including an assessment of their future prospects, was compiled in 2007. The National Climate Observing System of Switzerland (GCOS Switzerland) includes long-term climatological data series in the atmosphere and terrestrial domains, international data and calibration centres, satellite-based products and support of climate observations in developing countries. A major milestone in the surface-based atmospheric observations was the definition of the Swiss National Basic Climatological Network (NBCN), consisting of 29 stations of greatest climatological importance. The NBCN was further densified for precipitation with 46 additional daily precipitation stations (NBCN-P). Analysis of the homogenized timeseries of the average temperature in Switzerland shows a total warming of +1.6 °C from 1864 to 2010. In the terrestrial domain, substantial advances were made in all three subdomains hydrosphere, cryosphere and biosphere. As example for the use of satellite data within GCOS Switzerland, the 10-yr MODIS monthly mean cloud fraction climatology over Switzerland from March 2000 to February 2010 is presented, which illustrates the differences in cloud cover between mountainous regions and flatland regions in winter, as well as the north-south gradient in cloud cover over Switzerland in summer.

BRAND : Broad Research in Accounting, Negotiation, and Distribution , 2011,
Abstract: The new method by increasing the adaptation speed to a context, through a slight transformation of the contextual meaning of words and by the optimization of the phases in which the actual process of reframing provides a closer connection between the person and context, a better adaptation to the language contextual requirements, but also to reduce the steps in which the process of reframing is done, which is a higher efficiency of it and a lower consumption of resources. By improving the programs and filters that are serving to metaprograms, the environmental information will be obtained at a high quality, the redundancy will decrease, and the consumption of resources needed to perform the filtering of information will also be reduced. Keywords: optimization, efficient, reduce, improve, communication
