Paul Ricoeur and the Biblical Hermeneutics  [cached]
George Bondor
Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies , 2011,
Abstract: The main aim of this paper is to analyze the texts in which Paul Ricoeur discusses the relation between biblical and philosophical hermeneutics and to argue that biblical hermeneutics is the central part of Ricoeur’s philosophical project. If the modern hermeneutics (Schleiermacher, Dilthey, etc.) aims to reveal the general principles of interpretation that can be applied to every text, including the sacred one, Ricoeur’s biblical hermeneutics reveals the limits of general hermeneutics when it deals with an unusual text. The consequences of the biblical hermeneutics refer to specific problems such as revelation and faith, but also to philosophical themes such as the self and its place in the world.

Karine Raquiel Halmenschlager,Carlos Alberto Souza
Investiga??es em Ensino de Ciências , 2012,
Abstract: This study focuses on the Study Situation (SE), curricular modality organized from the approach of themes and demarcated by the cultural historic approach. It is aimed to present and discuss the main aspects considered to choose the themes for the elaboration of SE that are developed at a high school, pointing the criteria adopted for the selection of the thematics. This is a qualitative research, is configured as a Case Study, and it were used as research instruments a questionnaire and semi structured interviews. The analysis of the information was based on the assumptions of the Discursive Textual Analysis, from four analytical categories defined a priori, which are: contextualization, interdisciplinarity, conceptual signification and problematization. It is pointed out that the main criterion to choose the themes for the elaboration of the SE is the conceptual issue, this is, some concepts have guided the choice of the thematics.
Flagship Memorial: An Analysis of Themes at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial: 1982-2007  [cached]
Leslie D. Meyers
Sociation Today , 2012,
Abstract: This paper seeks to extend the analysis of Wagner-Pacifici and Schwartz’s (1991) landmark piece, “The Vietnam Veterans Memorial: Commemorating a Difficult Past”, by sixteen years in order to understand how memory has been both created and sustained at the memorial from 1982-2007. A content analysis of 791 articles from the New York Times and Washington Post revealed five themes for analysis: 1) healing, 2) politics, 3) conflict over additional elements, 4) religion, and 5) offerings. Of these themes, politics was significant. However, while the analysis indicates the Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a politically charged terrain; grassroots efforts dominate narratives of public opinion, changes to the site and discussions of memory.
An Analysis in various Compression Algorithms
A. Nagarajan
International Journal of Computer Trends and Technology , 2011,
Abstract: Image compression is the application of Data compression on digital images. It is the process of reducing the amount of data needed for storage or transmission of a given piece of information (text, graphics, video, sound, etc.). Data compression stands for compressing data or files containing data so that they can be stored in much less memory space than they had been stored in their original form. In this paper we analysis the various compression methods and their pros & cons.
Contours of Biblical spirituality as a discipline
H Welzen
Acta Theologica , 2011,
Abstract: Three approaches are used for coming towards a definition of Biblical spirituality. The first approach is from lived spirituality. We see always a bipolarity of text and reader. The reader attributes meaning to the text guided by the data of the text. The second approach is the analysis of literature discussing Biblical spirituality. There are many spiritualities both in the Bible and in its readers, influenced by their contexts. The third approach is the discussion of the composing terms. A definition is given: Biblical spirituality is about the divine human relational process in the Bible and about the Bible in the divine human relational process. A dialogue of spirituality and exegesis is needed. For doing research a threefold competence is needed: in exegesis, in spirituality and in the integration of these two. The final section is about intertextuality. Intertextuality may help to understand the spiritual process in reading biblical texts.
Biblical Spirituality and J.H. Eaton  [cached]
Christo Lombaard
Verbum et Ecclesia , 2012,
Abstract: In this contribution, the nature of ‘Biblical Spirituality’ as an academic discipline is reviewedfrom a methodological perspective. Two core aspects are indicated: the importance of ancientexpressions of faith (spiritualities) in the Bible, and the importance of modern expressions offaith (spiritualities) as they draw on the Bible. Based on this framework, as a first applicationof such a nature within the field of Biblical Spirituality, the relevant publications of an OldTestament scholar are evaluated; in this case, those of J.H. Eaton. Such an analysis opens anarena for discussion on whether this model of Biblical Spirituality holds promise for widerapplication.
Designing various component analysis at will  [PDF]
Akisato Kimura,Masashi Sugiyama,Sakano Hitoshi,Hirokazu Kameoka
Computer Science , 2012,
Abstract: This paper provides a generic framework of component analysis (CA) methods introducing a new expression for scatter matrices and Gram matrices, called Generalized Pairwise Expression (GPE). This expression is quite compact but highly powerful: The framework includes not only (1) the standard CA methods but also (2) several regularization techniques, (3) weighted extensions, (4) some clustering methods, and (5) their semi-supervised extensions. This paper also presents quite a simple methodology for designing a desired CA method from the proposed framework: Adopting the known GPEs as templates, and generating a new method by combining these templates appropriately.
What are the themes in young children’s stories? An analysis of the content of children’s written productions  [PDF]
Gómez Paz María,Maker June C.
Zbornik Instituta za Pedago?ka Istra?ivanja , 2011, DOI: 10.2298/zipi1101086g
Abstract: The authors examined themes in written narratives of second grade students including gender and ethnic differences. Eighty-seven stories were considered for this research, six general themes were found, and content and comparative analyses were performed among themes. Children tended to write more frequently about personal experiences and activities, and about settings that involved nature and animals; however, interactivity and social context was almost always present in children’s stories. Boys and girls tended to write about almost the same topics, with a higher tendency of girls to write about family including female characters performing gender-oriented tasks. Finally, the researchers found some ethnic differences in children’s stories, especially fantasy stories, nature, and family.
Influenza or not influenza: Analysis of a case of high fever that happened 2000 years ago in Biblical time

Virology Journal , 2010, DOI: 10.1186/1743-422x-7-169
Abstract: Infectious diseases continue to be a threat to humanity, and influenza has been with us since the dawn of human history. We analysed a case of high fever that happened 2000 years ago in Biblical time and discussed possible etiologies.The Bible descrbies the case of a woman with high fever cured by our Lord Jesus Christ. According to Mark 1:29 to 33 and Matthew 8:14-15, the mother-in-law of Simon Peter "lay sick" with a febrile illness [1]. When Jesus took her by the hand and lifted her up, the fever immediately left. The lady began to serve the household and probably prepared a meal. The case is also described in the gospel by Luke (Luke 4:38-39), who was a physician in his days and he specifically mentioned that the fever was high [1].What was the diagnosis of the febrile illness, based on the information provided by the gospels of Mark, Matthew and Luke [1]? It seems that the woman suffered an acute febrile illness with high fever and was sick enough to be bed-ridden. Luke did not quantify the fever as the Fahrenheit temperature scale was not invented until 1724 [2]. No other symptom or chronic illness was described in the three gospels. Possible etiology of her "acute febrile illness" is some sort of infection or inflammation. The Bible describes that when Jesus touched the woman, the fever retreated instantaneously. This implies that the disease was probably not a severe acute bacterial infection (such as septicemia) or subacute endocarditis that would not resolved instantaneously. It was probably not an autoimmune disease such as systemic lupus erythematousus with multiple organ system involvement, as the Bible does not mention any skin rash or other organ system involvement. The instantaneous cure also makes an underlying malignant etiology unlikely. It seems that an acute self-limiting infectious illness is a possible diagnosis. The brief duration, high fever, and abrupt cessation of fever makes influenza disease probable [3]. Shortly following her recovery,
Inversion of biblical symbols in The Grapes of Wrath
Pérez Veneros,Miriam;
Literatura y lingüística , 2012, DOI: 10.4067/S0716-58112012000200011
Abstract: although it is agreed that steinbeck's the grapes of wrath (1939) is full of allusions and symbols connected to the bible, no consensus has been reached yet about their nature. in this article an analysis is described which aims at demonstrating that the allusions and symbols found are better interpreted as inversions of the traditional biblical symbols, in such a way that the novel can be considered a new 'bible for the people'.
