Adem Aksoy,Murat Kulekci,Tugba Erem Kaya
Journal of Animal and Veterinary Advances , 2012,
Abstract: Farmers usually raise cattle for dairy products and beef production. In recent decade, farmers in Turkey have been raising cattle separately as dairy and beef. Farmers used to produce cattle for both dairy and beef as mixed farms. Since, specialization in dairy and beef farms has been increasing in Turkey, determination of factors affecting the profitability of dairy and beef production and their trends could help cattle producers to decide on specialization. This research was carried out to determine model for the factors affecting profitability of cattle farms for both dairy and beef. The survey has been conducted with 110 cattle farms in three districts (Karayazi, Tekman, Cat) where main income source of farmers are cattle products in Erzurum Province. The factor affecting profitability of cattle farms were estimated for dairy farms and beef farms.

Abstract: The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of animation technique on academic achievement of students in the “Human and Environment” unit lectured as part of the Science and Technology course of the seventh grade in primary education. The sample of the study consists of 58 students attending to the 7th grade of Erzurum MEB Yildizkent IMKB primary school under two different classes during the 2011- 2012 academic year. While the lectures in the class designated as the animation group were given with animation technique, in the class designated as the control group Powerpoint presentations was utilized along with the traditional teaching methods. According to the findings, it was determined that animation technique is more effective than traditional teaching methods in terms of enhancing students’ achievement. It was also determined in the study that, the Powerpoint presentations used together with the traditional teaching methods provided to the control group significantly help the students to increase their academic achievement.

Abstract: Methods and results: ApoE-/- and ApoE-/-/AT1R-/--mice were rendered diabetic by intraperitoneal injections of streptozotocin. Diabetic and non-diabetic ApoE-/--mice were further randomized to receive the AT1R antagonist telmisartan, the selective PPARgamma antagonist GW9662, telmisartan and GW9662 or vehicle for 18 weeks. Diabetic and non-diabetic ApoE-/-/AT1R-/--mice were randomized to receive either GW9662 or vehicle. GW9662 treatment in diabetic ApoE-/- and diabetic ApoE-/-/AT1-/--mice resulted in the highest elevation of fasting blood glucose levels, whereas telmisartan treatment and AT1 deficiency in ApoE-/--mice showed the lowest fasting blood glucose levels. Diabetic ApoE-/--mice displayed severe impairment of endothelial function, enhanced oxidative stress and increased atherosclerotic lesion formation. ApoE-/-/AT1R-/- and telmisartan-treated ApoE-/--mice showed a significantly better endothelial function, decreased oxidative stress and reduced atherosclerotic lesion formation. Treatment of diabetic ApoE-/- and ApoE-/-/AT1R-/--mice with the selective PPARgamma antagonist GW9662 omitted the atheroprotective effects of AT1R deficiency or AT1 antagonism.Genetic disruption or pharmacological inhibition of the AT1R attenuates atherosclerosis and improves endothelial function in diabetic ApoE-/--mice via the PPARgamma pathway.

Abstract: objectives: to investigate the acute effect of phosphodiesterase type 5 (pde5) inhibitor on erectile dysfunction by evaluating serum oxidative status and prolidase activity. methods: serum samples of 36 patients with erectile dysfunction and 30 control cases were analyzed for total antioxidant status, total oxidant status, and prolidase activity, before and after the administration of tadalafil citrate. results: before and after tadalafil citrate administration, serum total antioxidant status, total oxidant status, and prolidase were 1.1+0.0 vs. 1.6 + 0.0 umol h2o2 eq/l, 10.3+1.1 vs. 6.9 + 1.2 umol h2o2 eq/l, and 236.4+19.5 vs. 228.2 + 19.2 u/l, respectively (p<0.0001 for all). conclusions: evaluation of serum oxidative status and prolidase activity confirmed the beneficial acute effects of pde5 inhibitor in patients with erectile dysfunction.
Unavoidable myomectomy during cesarean section: a case report  [PDF]
Ayse Nur Aksoy, Kemal Tolga Saracoglu, Mehmet Aksoy, Ayten Saracoglu
Health (Health) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/health.2011.33029
Abstract: Since myomectomy throughout cesarean deliv- ery may lead to hemorrhage and uterinal atony, it is not recommended. But, myomectomy has been reported during cesarean section in recent studies. We presented a patient with large in- tramural myoma who was diagnosed at 34 weeks of pregnancy and operated with an unavoidable cesarean-combined myomectomy. A 33-year-old unpursued primigravida was referred to emer- gency department with abdominal pain and amenorrhea of 34 weeks duration. A sonographic diagnosis of myoma in pregnancy was made. Cesarean section was required for fetal distress and alive 2300 g weighted male infant with Ap- gar score of 6 at one minute, was born. As uterine incision could not be closed because of the myoma, myomectomy was performed dur- ing cesarean section unavoidably. A single 970 g and 15 × 18 cm sized myoma was removed. The physical examinations were unremarkable in the postoperative period. Although there are case series that have demonstrated the safety of myomectomy during cesarean section, we con-cluded that myomectomy during cesarean section is not a safe procedure accept inevitable situa-tions.
Demand Growth versus Market Share Gains: Decomposing World Manufacturing Import Growth  [PDF]
M. Ataman Aksoy, Francis Ng
Modern Economy (ME) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/me.2013.46046

This paper decomposes manufacturing import growth rates in a selected set of large industrial and developing countries (five industrial and eight developing) and measures the relative contributions of domestic demand and market share changes for two separate periods 1991/92-2001/02 and 2001/02-2007/08. It also shows the shares of imports both from the rest of the world and from developing countries for aggregate and three digit manufacturing sectors. Import growth is much higher during the 2000s driven by higher demand growth rates. While market share changes explain most of the growth during the 1990s, its contribution is relatively smaller during the 2000s. Imports from developing countries have grown much faster both in industrial and developing country markets driven primarily by market share changes. However, more than half of market share gains by developing countries are caused by the exports of China which accounts for more than 70 percent of market share gains of developing countries in our sample countries during the 2000s. Despite rapid growth, developing country’s share in the gross absorption of the sample countries is still very low and can expand substantially even if demand growth is much lower in the near future.

Abstract: Antenatal testing (ANT) is widely used in modern obstetrics and gynaecology. I shall discuss the procedures involved in ANT from different perspectives, beginning with definitions of 'antenatal screening' and 'antenatal diagnosis', the main objectives and indications for their use. Secondly, I will discuss the risks and complications of ANT, the concerns, doubts and moral controversies it raises. Thirdly, since counselling is an integral part of ANT, I shall try to determine what the ideal of counselling before and after ANT is meant to be. Finally, with particular reference to some relevant concepts like 'responsibility', 'suffering' and 'interest', I attempt to describe the whole issue more comprehensively.Recent studies have indicated that the major paediatric health problems are handicaps due to genetic disorder or congenital malformation. When it was noticed that more than a quarter of all deaths in the first year of life were due to fetal abnormalities [1], scientists were alarmed and parents sought a 'remedy' for the 'problem'. Although antenatal diagnostic techniques were initially described in the nineteenth century, it was not until the middle of 20th century that the techniques were applied to AND and management of various genetic disorders and congenital malformations. And, at the present time, antenatal screening and diagnostic techniques are almost the norm. It has been said that, probably around 90% of women in the UK have undergone one of these at some time during pregnancy [2]. Although there is only a slight difference between the two procedures, the authorities do distinguish between antenatal screening (ANS) and antenatal diagnosis (AND).ANS services are based on population screening to identify people with a genetic risk, or a risk of having a child with a congenital or genetic disorder [3]. In the Dutch Health Council report on genetic screening, the major aim is defined as: "To enable people to decide upon a course of action that is acceptable

Abstract: By using quarterly data this study applied Toda-Yamamoto (1995) method for the period 1988-2010 to uncover the relationship between growth and employment in aggregate and industrial respects and also to investigate the impacts of investment and employment incentives on employment for Turkish Economy. The findings showed that the relationship between growth and employment varied with the industries. The study covers ten industries and there were causalities detected for four out of ten industries, either one or two ways. For the rest six industries covered in the study, there was no causal relationship obtained. The incentives impacts on employment, similarly, vary with industries. The law numbered as 5084 had positive and statistically significant influences on social service, manufacturing, and transportation and communication industries while the law numbered as 5763 extracted positive and significant influences on energy production and distribution, and financial intermediation industries.
